 Robert Lemmer
Robert Lemmer enjoys long walks everywhere and train rides anywhere else. He uses his extra travel time to listen to music on his iPod, including Radiohead, AC/DC, and Philip Glass, and contemplate whatever it is a man of his limited power contemplates - which is another way of saying "who cares?".

A collector of comics and an avid film watcher, he is often found at the Labia begging passersby for change to see another film, or the same film for the umpteenth time. The other ways he passes the time are amateur philosophising, playing video games, singing in choirs, going to the theatre, and being a student at the University of Cape Town.

127 Hours
127 Hours, in which James Franco expertly plays an outstanding character who must undergo a riveting but painful experience to remove himself from a (literal) rock and a hard place.

A Nightmare On Elm Street (2010)
Freddy's back, creepier than ever - but not in a good way. An updated story with a tweaked origin for the 21st century makes this horror remake more serious than most of its predecessors and it ventures into territory most audiences wouldn't want to think about while enjoying a slasher film.

The Hurt Locker
If you don't want to worry with complex plots and prefer your action taking place on Earth, go and see The Hurt Locker, a contemporary war film delivering good action with little need to engage the higher brain functions.
