Title: Films films filmsy films.
Post by: flammableBen on Wednesday, June 4, 2008, 12:50:06
I've watched two already today.

Started with Raiders of the Lost Ark. I'll get through Temple of Doom and Last Crusade before I get around to watching the new one. Haven't watched them for a few years and always good fun.

Then I thought it was a good idea to watch SalÚ o le 120 giornate di Sodoma. I now feel more than a little disturbed. I don't think I'll watch it again, it was pretty hard going, makes Cannibal Holocaust look like a picnic. It's got more about it as a film though, less just comic book violence for the sake of it and more of a psychologically damaging edge.  I wouldn't recommend it if you're at all offended or disturbed by anything, ever.

I'm in a film watching mood, although I'm not sure what I'll watch next. Definitely something a bit more light hearted. Might get some jobs done first.

Ben - I am jealous as fuck that you have time to do all this film watching....

I sat and watched Educating Rita last week - just flicked it on for 5 minutes as it was on the beeb - then couldn't turn it off...

Michael Caine at his VERY best - and Julie Walters is bloody hilarious !!!

I've got a job interview next week, so I better enjoy it whilst I can. Just in case I accidentally get the thing.

I've got a fair few films kicking about that I keep meaning to watch but never get around to it. I'm going to make the effort over the next few days.

The big 3 I keep putting off are Metropolis (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0017136/), The Shawshank Redemption (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111161/) and Breathless (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0053472/).

There's a few others but those are the ones which come to my head immediately.

I've been watching 'The Jungle Book' this morning, some friends came round with their youngsters so I found this in our old collection, it was great, me and the kids didn't take our eyes off the tele for the whole film. Might watch it again when they've gone home. :D

I always think it's a shame that Will Smith turned down the part of Neo in the martrix. If only because I want to here what he would have done for the sound track.

I can't think of anything better than a pop-rap hit based on that film. It would blow my mind.

I think that I'll watch the machine girl tomorrow, which is supposed to be an ace cult japanese movie. Can't wait.

Iím patiently waiting for the Lost Boys 2 which is bound to bad in a terrible way.

Iím supposed to see Indiana Jones this week although itís mixed reports from everyone at the moment and this bout of manfluenza doesnít make trip to a draughty old cinema that appealing.

Last film I saw was Field of Dreams on Sunday on ITV largely down to my laziness to either go to bed or change the channel.  One of those slightly sickly Yankie films that has a bit of a random charm about it that makes it worth watching and James Earl Jones is a top notch addition.

Watched Clash of the Titans with the kids at the weekend when they showed it on five. All three of us absolutely gripped from start to finish and the kids have had it on two of the three evenings since. Now that's a classic! Just can't beat it for a bit of the old Kraken, two-headed dog and bird with snakes for hair action.

I watched both St Trinian's and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street last night. Both a bit mediocre. St Trinian's lacked any sort of development in the characters, was all a bit one dimensional. Might have been ok if the plot had something about it. It had a few funny moments early on, but the laughs dried up massively towards the end.

Sweeney Todd was better, but seemed to stall about halfway through. After they'd come up with their barber and pie shop super combo, they seemed to do fuck all but sing about it for half an hour plus. It was a bit of a three act affair. Act 1 - Good. Act 2 - Boring. Act 3 - ok, although after the repetition of act 2, a bit obvious.

meh.

Post by: Simon Pieman on Sunday, June 8, 2008, 23:15:12
St Trinians was shit. I regretted agreeing to watch that.

One thing I'll say for Sweeney Todd is that the cast were pretty top. I get a bit bored of the wankery over Depp, but he was good in it. It just seemed to lose it's flow after a while, before clumsily rushing through the end.

Didn't the BBC do an adaptation of it with Ray Winstone? Obviously non-musical (I think). I'm not sure if I dreamt it, but I'm fairly sure I remember catching it and thinking it was ace. Might have been in two parts. Possibly around Christmas time, a few years back?

Ray Winstone is ace anyway.

Not really a film as such but I've been watching the century of the self whilst playing tetris this evening. I already feel about 100times cleverer. I think that Adam Curtis is some sort of x-man who's voice has the magical power of brain expansion.

I thought that was a waste of money.

With all these rubbish films I went to see at the cinema, it's little wonder I stopped going and started playing football, despite it being Orange Wednesday 2-for-1 and getting dicked every game in the league (we're a cup team I promise).

I emailed back Simon but he seems adament about playing on a Wednesday. The league is on Wednesday so we can't do that day (well not until the league is over in 6 or 7 weeks time).

We're all up for it if it was on another day though.

I'm not sure Simon Pegg is capable of ace stuff with out Edgar Wright writing with him and directing.  Run Fatboy run wasn't terrible though. Just pretty average.

Also I started to watch 2001-space odyssey today, but my viewing was cut short by my spawn wanting to watch spongebob square pants  :evil:

2001  seemed rather arty-farty for my liking, and quite dated although I liked clockwork orange. Is it worth me continuing with 2001?

this week i watched.
the negotiator, which i liked.
the siege, which was average at best.
and sin city, which was a pile of stinking horse shit.


The Siege (if we're talking about the Denzel Washington film) got absolutely slated when it came out for being unrealistic - but after 9/11 the film got popular for it's links to what the movie was trying to say.

But you're right, it is an average film.

I didn't get caught up in the Sin City hype either - I thought it was okay but not as amazing as people tell me.

Predator trivia: Jesse Ventura was delighted to find out from the wardrobe department that his arms were 1" bigger than Arnold Schwarzenegger's. He suggested to Schwarzenegger that they measure arms, with the winner getting a bottle of champagne. Ventura lost because Schwarzenegger had told the wardrobe department to tell Ventura that his arms were bigger.

i was put off by it's running time as well, though i found it engrossing enough that i didn't get impatient. nicely paced.

i just re-watched no country for old men, it really is a truly masterful piece of cinema. my parents weren't impressed with the ending though...

bought a few films this week:

- no country for old men
- walk the line
- the lives of others
- goodbye bafana
- the last king of scotland
- inland empire

Why do so many people have a gripe with the conclusion of No Country For Old Men? When leaving the cinema I heard more than few people complaining about it.

I for one was disappointed there wasn't a Michael Bay explosion that kills the entire cast while the farmer from the movie "Babe" enters clutching a machine gun and chomping a cigar - he then declares "that'll do Pig, that'll do".

Hmmm it's so absurd it might just work.

Dear Universal Studios....

It was a brilliant - it was true to the book.

There Will Be Blood is out of Montag - which I enjoyed, it was a bit of a slog to begin with but it was a brilliant film.

Recent film I loved was the Spanish film The Orphange. It was just amazing.

Saw Collateral last night on Film 4 and thought it was a class act from Micchael Mann.

Loved the moment when the Coyotes/Wolves cross the road and everything just stops and Max snaps out of his trance and the  final look on Vincent's much at the end when he realises whet he's done.

Not normally one for Cruise the bum surfer's films but he wasn't bad in that at all.

i saw control last night, the one about ian curtis.

kindve weird, obviously tragic, not enough music and a slightly short life to warrant such a biographical film- of course that's what really makes the tragedy though.

would recommend it though to anyone with a slight interest in JD/post-punk, but watch with an open mind.

It's called Bite My Shiny Metal X (you can get a torrent of mininova) - with the cast and writers in attendance it's a pretty heavy maths lecture by Dr. Sarah Greenwald. In a nutshell it discusses the mathematics in Futurama and solves hidden messages the writers put in the show etc...

Yes very good. Walken is someone who needs to learn how to say "no" though, the number of shit films he's been in is quite absurd (Also see; Samuel L Jackson). And apparently he went through a phase of insisting on a dancing scene in any film he agreed to be in.

Incidentally I added 'The Counterfeiters' to my lovefilm list so I'll probably get to see that sometime around Christmas.

I have an idea that she had a bottom double.Sure she was going out with Rod Stewart at the time and he got pissy at the idea of his girlfriend dancing around in the buff.Strange that :D

It is an absolute classic film though,one of the best British movies ever i would have said.

Her voice was completely dubbed too. Bit of an odd casting that one.

and I've got the second Futurama film to watch tonight - The beast with a billion backs. hope it's good.

I guess it was about the same in goodness as the first one, a little disappointing though. The trailer for the third looks bizarre which I count as a good thing.

Another hit or miss by Spike Lee. Ed Norton is pretty decent in it - but it gets just strange in places... Another good performance by Phillip Seymour Hoffman though.

In other news The Dark Knight has taken the number 1 spot from The Godfather on IMDb - can't remember many doing that - it'll be brief but it just adds to the hype.

It's not everyone's cup of tea' but to be honest it's a typical tarrantino film,he always offer's something different to other producer's.I love that film' i reckon it's great as the other part to it is aswell Death Proof.Different movie but it's part of a pack called Grindhouse if you aint seen Death Proof i would reccomend it if you like tarrantino.

It was aimed to create the atmosphere of the old grindhouse movies years ago that was shown at the drive in's

Iíve always thought Tarantino films do what they say on the tin.  There not big or clever or necessarily original but he does manage to create very watchable B movie style schlock.

After Pulp Fiction he pretty much said now that heís loaded heís going to make the films that he wants to see, which to be fair he does it quite well.

Quite looking forward to his next effort Inglorious Bastards, which is a Great Escape style WWII effort.

I can't find Belucci attractive since being introduced to her in 'Irreversible'. Absolutely rank scene that, for some reason I re-watched it a couple of years after my first view - never, ever, again.

Kill Bill 2 was ace and pakaged the first up nicely.

I can never bring myself to watch films more than once, but Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction were pretty shit hot from my limited viewing.

I like to hear Tarantino talk rather than watch his films, he's such a geek it's great. Dude watches 6 films a day, on a bad day.

I watched Terkel in Trouble (wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terkel_in_trouble),imdb (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0386820/)) last night. It was good fun. Obviously going to get comparisons to South Park, but in reality it was more like a brightly coloured Disney film with dark subject matter. I enjoyed it, even if it took a while to get going and the pacing was a bit off at times. Fun twist at the end, although more in a "why" sort of a way than not expecting it to happen.

Worth a watch if you haven't got anything better to do. Some of the random musical numbers were fun.

Just got back from watching the The Dark Knight.

Certainly a good film - Heath Ledger is deliciously evil, but is most certainly not meriting all these accolades he's been linked to for his portrayal of The Joker... He did a very good job, but he was a villian in a comic book movie - he did what was expected of him. I enjoyed the performance of Aaron Eckhart who does a good job as Harvey Dent.

It is 152 minutes of worthy watching - but it is no way the greatest film of all time, which the 115,000 good voters of IMDb believe.

i've only seen aaron eckhart in thank you for smoking and i thought he was brilliant in that.

I think it's more to do with Batman Begins being quite good and the films are going in a different direction, so the expectation is there. Similar to the new Bond film I think.

I didn't even know Heath Ledger was in it, most people I've spoken to seem to talk about Christian Bale as Batman.

Not at all, you're right. As I said, Ledger did a very good job, he was what I expected a new look Joker to be like - but that was it, he was not out-of-this-world. The Academy Award talk is a little embarressing.

Aaron Eckhart is vastly under rated - He doesn't help himself with some of his career choices - such as The Core. Ew.

Yeah it was - probably due the accounts of the underage sex and the teenage lad in the film called "the Virgin Surgeon".

That's one of Rosario Dawson's first films (also Chloe Sevigny for that matter)

I saw Batman last night in Holloway. Great film. Long, but non-stop, fast paced storytelling.

Heath Ledger was superb as the joker. It's the little details which make a great performance and he'd nailed it - the creepy giggle, tongue thing, twitchy eyes. There's a real (short but) nice shot of him riding out the window of a taxi acting all crazy which typifies the character and actor.

I didn't think that much to Bale, especially his stupid gruff voice when playing Batman. He was alright though.

Eckhart was really good. A bit cheesy, but good.

Agreed. Tina Fey did a good job adapting the story. All before Lohan went dolally.

Fact: The phrase "Gone doolally" comes from bored British soldiers stationed at the Deolali camp in India.

Meanwhile Lohan is doing doing better according to L.A's finest.

http://uk.imdb.com/news/ns0000002/#ni0341925

"Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan attract and encourage the paparazzi by behaving badly, according to Los Angeles police chief William Bratton.

In an astonishing outburst on Thursday Bratton claimed photographers have calmed down since "Britney started wearing clothes (and) Lindsay Lohan has gone gay", referring to the actress' rumoured romance with DJ Samantha Ronson.

He said in an interview with local TV station Knbc-tv, "If the ones that attract the paparazzi behave in the first place, like we expect of anybody, that solves about 90 per cent of the problem. The rest we can deal with.

"If you notice, since Britney started wearing clothes and behaving; Paris is out of town not bothering anybody anymore, thank God, and evidently, Lindsay Lohan has gone gay, we don't seem to have much of an issue."

Bratton refused to appear at a Los Angeles City Hall meeting scheduled for the same day, attended by rocker John Mayer, to discuss ways to restrict aggressive paparazzi.

He insisted "we have sufficient laws on the books" to deal with the paparazzi."

leefer the the nasty man in Derailed is Vincent Cassel.

I saw Derailed at the cinema when I was in the U.S. - entry was free because it was a promotion night for this radio station, observations from that evening...

1) Metal detectors at cinemas is odd.
2) Whacky radio DJ's and their slogans - just like the parodies in the cartoons - still exist, big time.

I loved Good Night & Good Luck when I saw it at the cinema - haven't seen it since... I liked Secretary too.

When the latter came out for rental I was working at Blockbuster - this person returned it complaining that it's described as a black comedy and it didn't make her laugh, that happened alot but the best bit was when she told me that she rented it to watch with someone who had just returned from hospital for self-harming.

I politely read out the description on the back which mentions that Maggie G's character was that way inclined.

Best tag line though - ASSUME THE POSITION.....

scum - brutal.

all the boys love mandy lane - started terribly, got better once it got into teen slasher territory. descended into farce.

dark water - more of a psychological thriller than a horror at times but excellent nevertheless...

Christian Bale is great in American Psycho - he made it Hip to be Square that's for sure. It's a bit of "marmite" film though, people tend to love it or loathe it.

I acually liked Apocolypto unlike DRS - haven't seen Flags of our Fathers yet - but it's on my to watch list.

Jack Black needs to know what a mouthful of broken teeth tastes like. His BIG and LOUD shtick is perhaps good in a cameo role, such as High Fidelity, where it offered a distraction, but in a leading role it really irritates. I feel driven to violence just thinking about him.

Watched Rocky III whilst spending the afternoon drinking through last nights hangover. I love that film, but in my head I can never decide if I prefer III or IV. I think most people say III, but there's something about IV which clicks with me. I think it might be that the entire second half of the film is montage after montage. One big Montage.

I watched trade the other night pretty disturbing mind,Its about how women and girls are getting snatched and forced into prostitution or even sold to like male peadophiles,this came out not long after maddie got snatched so it caused a bit of a stir,but in another sense it highlighted how often this occurs especially abroad..

Although this was fictional it still hit home pretty damn hard,I cant say it was enjoyable but its one of them films you need to watch now and again,unless it ever happens to someone you know its kinda forgotten about by people.

It kinda made me sad thinking some poor girl somewhere at this moment in time is going through this kinda of shit.

I watched Ferris thingies day off for the first time the other day (that I remember, some of it seemed familiar), but I guess you've seen that.

If you forget about the Sci-Fi bits then Star Trek II is the best cold war sub thriller film ever made.

The Devil's Chair is sort of horror, and sort of really randomly placed comedy moments, with part psychological randomness. It's a weird one and worth a watch, if just for the complete inaneness of having Matt Berry in it.

Well that's two films in the catagorys you don't want out the way.

Dead Mans Shoes is good, but I guess you've probably seen that.

Errr. picking things off the top of my head... Brazil? You must have seen that.

Any Kubrick films you haven't seen?

The Walace and Gromit film about the rabbits. That's ace.

Any of the Hayao Miyazaki films, Howl's moving castle is ace.

The ridiculous in it always went one step to far. It had the makings of a good dark comedy but just took everything just over the edge of ridiculous. Lot's of people who haven't seen each other for a long time in one place, good scenario for comedy. Find out the dead person had a gay affair, awesome. With a midget? Too far. The whole drug thing was stupid, the characters in it are quite strong, so why rely on ridiculous misunderstandings and coincidences for some pass the drugs around jokes.

It just reeked of missed opportunities a bit to me. It all felt a bit like an extended episode of a sitcom, but one where they waste time reintroducing the characters.

Stranger Than Fiction was a good effort and as close as Ferrell has got to what you're suggesting. Poor old Carrey, he's made some very good films post-mid 90's whackiness... But he'll always be Ace Ventura or Lloyd Christmas!

I've not watched a film at home in ages... Got too much TV dvds to get through. Arrested Development (awesome), Curb Your Enthusiasm (seasons 1-6 for only £36) and Entourage.

The complete West Wing is available at work for £50 at the moment and I'm tempted, stick the 30% discount and it's a bargain (the best I ever had).

I thought that the Orphanage was OK Mex, wouldn't call it scary though as it was too similar too many other ghost movies and so I knew what to expect.

I have just watched journey to the center of the earth, thin in plot (Not that I was expecting one), but entertaining regardless. Worth a gander especially if you have kids.

As nobody else seems to be about I'll answer.

Yes it is. It was in some of the papers yesterday that the fellah's now planning on leaving Italy as he's sick of living his life in carabinieri barracks protected by a team of seven paramilitary carabinieri.

Which does sound like it might cramp your style a little.

I've been shitting it every so often watching it now. Enjoying it immensely, and that's without any sort of nostalic feeling towards it, me not being born in '81 and all.

The main female love interest character keeps throwing me off, one minute she's miss independent lady and the next she most certainly knows her place. I guess I'm a bit modern.

The main character looks a bit like matey boy in Dead Mans Shoes. But I'm sure he looks like someone else more, I just can't put my finger on it.

Is that the one with tom cruise, he gets into a big law firm but its all a bit dodgy? i saw it a while ago and thought it was really good.

I've just finished reading Factotum by Charles Bukowski, and am now about to watch the film. Would definitely recommend Post Office and Factotum if anyone is on the lookout for good books, he is a big drinker and gets up to all kinds. his writing is hilarious.

I've just finished reading Factotum by Charles Bukowski, and am now about to watch the film. Would definitely recommend Post Office and Factotum if anyone is on the lookout for good books, he is a big drinker and gets up to all kinds. his writing is hilarious. I am going to watch the film in an appropriate mood: with a whiskey and a smoke.

I couldn't understand how factotum could be made into a film, then when I saw Matt Dillon was the lead I decided definately not to watch it.  Not a great book I wouldn't say anyway, Ham On Rye is his best by far IMHO.

Just looking on IMDB, I see Corey Haim has a part (presumably cameo) but can't spot any other originals.

But i digress, I love the way some characters are described:
   Lindsay Maxwell   ...    Hot Girl at Party
   Karolina Turek   ...    Latex Girl
   Ildiko Ferenczi   ...    Latex Girl
   Jennifer Rostad   ...    Topless Girl

I thought it would be a good film, his snappy writing and dialogue lends itself to a transfer to film. Many of the lines which I thought would sound ace in a film were missed out though, and the pace and humour of the novel had drained away.

Women is on its way to me, then onto Ham On Rye.

I saw 'Hunger' last weekend. Its about Bobby Sands and the 1981 Hunger Strikes by IRA terrorists.

The cinema was silent for a good few minutes when the credits rolled, nobody moving or speaking. Quite an effect and not a reaction I've ever seen before.

Well worth a watch and a brilliantly done film. Not sure whether its possible to enjoy a film so brutal and horrible, but I'm glad to have seen it.

I watched This Film is Not Yet Rated last night. About the MPAA rating system. Fairly interesting but didn't really come across as balanced. It's on google video... http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-559517494445537267

Then I watched Richard Dawkins' documentary The Root of all Evil. Which is also on google video.
Part 1: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=9002284641446868316
Part 2: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7619161192220036050
Whilst I agree with most of what he's saying, Dawkins doesn't half come across as a bit of a twat. People have recommended me some (one?) of his books before but I've never read them. I guess his arguments and reasoning might be more suited too writing than telly?

There's quite a lot of ace stuff on google video. It's like a posh youtube where things can last more than 10 mins.

Cape Fear by Scorsese starring De Niro was really good, De Niro in full on psycho mode.

The Tenant by Polanski starring Polanski was really obscure and far too abstract for my liking. Was he convicted for Phaeophilia? May explain some of the strangeness.

V for Vendetta was on telly the other night and looked really good from the first fourty minutes which is all I watched. Stephen Fry was in it, which means it must be pretty amaze. I think I'll try and download it when I get home unless someone tells me its shit.

I've seen the film but wish I'd read the book before I did. I will get round to reading it at some point no doubt.

I'm halfway through watching The Stand, nowhere near as good or epic as the book, but entertaining thus far.

Dog tired..great film...Tom Hanks is brilliant as always,books always seem better,usually because we rarely watch the film then read the book.
Also with a book its you who directs the film in your own brain...ware as a film is another persons interpritation of events...if you know what i mean.

I haven't seen Hancock, but I do know that what the world really needs right now is a new album from Big Will, the world's greatest rapper. Maybe a critical mauling of his latest big screen effort is what it will take to send him back to the studio. :)

Ah right wasn't aware that there was another.

I think the next Stephen King film I am going to try and watch is Desparation. It's got naff reviews, but I always think the naffness of a horror film often makes it good. I thought as I read the book that Ron Perlman would be the actor to play Collie, and that's exactly who plays him in the film.

Desperation is about a mining town in Nevada (I think it's Nevada). There's some sort of demon thing which is killing everyone and loads of Chinese people who work the mine.

Oh yeah I forgot to say, I watched Chinatown the other day and thought it was actually rather good. Nicholson plays the part of Gittes perfectly.

It missed out a lot of that, I think mainly because he wanted to highlight his demise more than his rise.

I watched the new Batman last night, I was a tad disappointed. I thought that Batman had a weak character, and they did not make the most of the Joker who was a bit dead good (Pun intended). But then again what can be expected from an action type movie based on a super hero.

I also watched saw 5, I was not disappointed. the reason being that it was the milked to fuck crap that I expected it to be, even the killings aren't as gruesome as they used to be.

I am just about to watch Mama Mia, as gay as it may sound I like both musicals and ABBA, as does my daughter and misses.

Saw Yes Man while massively hungover on New Years Day, not as good as the book (obviously) but still alot better than i was expecting. I'm absolutely besotted with Zooey Deschanel now.

Looking forward to seeing The Wrestler and getting around to seeing Australia

I watched Knocked Up tonight. I was pretty disappointed with it, not because it was a bad film, but it's one that was hugely exaggerated to how good/funny it was by most people I've spoken to.

Also that scene is not as bad as people make out. At school we had to watch a video of a woman giving birth in sex education and that really was fucking sick. In fact, I think it tamed everyone's hormones for about five minutes, which was no mean feat.

I thought Superbad had more laugh out loud moments, loads more.

Pineapple Express was a film I didn't think was very good. If you're going to make a typically stupid stoner film, at least make it so stupid it's funny (or not show the best bits in the trailer). It probably rocks if you're stoned though, but I bet not as much as the crazy Cheech & Chong films.

Surprised that Mickey Rourke won best actor,laughed at his speach,even with the bleeps.

No surprises with Kate Winslet winning and it was good to see how upbeat and funny

The book was superb from what I remember. I read it a couple of years ago whilst at the peak of my fascination with him, and before seeing 'Walk the Line' (which seemed a bit shitty and cheesy after the authenticity of the book version, probably testament to how well he gets his character across on the page).

It follows more or less the same path as 'Walk the Line', but is much better. If you liked the film, I'd definitely recommend it.

You'll want the Patrick Carr version.

Just watched this, honestly thought it was dull, very slow and no great characters to keep my interest. Still, each to their own!

I'm struggling to get round to watching films a the moment. I think the problem is that I've got quite a long list of films I've never seen, that I've got and should watch, but never feel like watching. Stuff like The Shawshank Redemption, Blade Runner, Sleeper, Breathless, Metropolis; some of which I've had kicking about on various hard-drives for nearly a decade. It's putting me off looking up other interesting films, modern or old.

I think I need to get back in the habit of having a time when I watch a film. Need to get back in to that.

Back on films, I watched Tropic Thunder when I was in brizzle last week. It had lots of ace moments, but for me it didn't quite hang together properly. There was all the talk about Downey Jr. doing the black man thing, but for me the weirdest moment was when it clicked that the comically nasty studio executive dude was Tom Cruise. It took an embarrassingly long amount of time for me to realise. Didn't help that Ally kept asking me if it was Gary Oldman... "Is that Gary Oldman? It looks like Gary Oldman."

I know Alan Moore is ignoring it, and I know it will lose the depth of the book. I'm sure it will lose all the "Black Trader" comic bits, all the excerpts from "Under the hood" and from "New Frontiersman" probably, but that's fine, it's a movie and movie have to concentrate on the main plotline or they ramble into incoherence.

Comic written by Alan Moore, and drawn by Dave Gibbons. Rated as the greatest graphic novel of all time. It was the only graphic novel to appear on Time's 2005 list of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to the present.

I doubt the film can possibly live up to the book but it does look cool.

I watched In Bruges tonight. I think the reviews I read were spot on, I thought it was a very good film. The story alone is a very serious one, but it's the very politically incorrect gags throughout the film which are the reason it's so good.

the weirdest moment was when it clicked that the comically nasty studio executive dude was Tom Cruise.

I didn't realise til after I'd watched it! The funniest bit of the film was when they played that RnB or whatever and he was offering the G5 private jet.

This is the scene...

Les Grossman: Speedman is a dying star. A white dwarf headed for a black hole. That's physics. It's inevitable.
Studio Executive Rob Slolom: We've been handed an incredible opportunity here, Peck.
Les Grossman: The universe... is talking to us right now. You just gotta listen.
[turns on Flo Rider's "Low" and begins to dance to the beat]
Les Grossman: See, this is the good part, Pecker. This is when the job gets fun! Ask... and you shall receive!
Studio Executive Rob Slolom: [dancing along] Right...
Les Grossman: You play ball... we play ball. I knoowwww... you want the goodies!
Studio Executive Rob Slolom: Welcome to the goodie room!
Les Grossman: You paying attention? I'm talking... G5, Pecker! That's how you can roll. No more frequent flyer bitch miles for my boy! Oh yeah! Playa... playa! Big dick playa!
Studio Executive Rob Slolom: Swinging past ya knees!
Les Grossman: Big dick, baby!
Studio Executive Rob Slolom: Yep.
Les Grossman: [turns off the music] Or... you can grow a conscience in the next five minutes and see where that takes you.
Rick Peck: Now let me get this straight. You want me to let my client of 15 years, one of my best friends, die in the jungle alone, for some money and a G5?
Les Grossman: Yes.
Rick Peck: [pause] A G5 airplane?
Les Grossman: Yes... and lots of money... playaaaa!
[turns on the music and dances again]

How does it compare to the other 3? I thought the second one - "The Beat with a Billion Backs" with the league of robots and all that was the best. The first one was pretty good too, but the last one with the dungeons and dragons stuff was poor.

Dan in Real Life is a well-reviewed Steve Carell (so yes Dave is correct) film

The other two are HBO TV movies

Bury My Heart... is based on the book about fall of the Native Americans

Pancho Villa is about the Mexican revolutionary who invited Hollywood to promote his regime.

Last night I watched the Illusionist for the first time even though its been sat on my computer for about 2 years. It was quite good, I liked the effects. Don't really understand how all the little bits the police chief remembers at the end are supposed to fit together. Doubt I'll watch it again.

Then after that I watched Juno for the second time. I liked when she sees her schoolmate outside the abortion clinic and is talking about the pep pills you can take to revise with and says "I heard about this one girl who took too many of those and jumped in the fountain and was like I AM THE KRAKEN!!!" and the other girl just says "That was you."  :soapy tit wank: :soapy tit wank:

Blame the Affleck/Lopez media storm for that (even though she was barely in it).

It's not amazing (in my opinion) but it was certainly watchable.

Might've posted this already but I've been working my way through the Saw films recently, having never seen them before (always assumed it wasn't my thing, not a horror fan). As it turns out the first one is very good, the second isn't far off. Watched 3 last night and I'm starting to notice a decline - a little too much explanation maybe. A bit of back story is useful but I think some aspects could've been left unspoken.

the first film was (relatively) original, fresh and quite clever for what is essentially a slasher flick. the second film was a fairly good reworking of the original premise but the rest of the series just began to feel more and more like recycling after that.

Green Street 2 looks like it might be even worse than the first one but the first was was is quite hard to beat for shitness given it seems to be american take on the hooligan thing starring an american and with basically no authenticity at all.

I watched disneys Sleeping Beauty last night. The animation is awesome and the making of documentary on disc 2 was well interesting. It was really successful but didn't make as much money as you might think given they spent so much making it. Basically drawing one cell an animator took 1 hour and that equated to an eighth of a second of screen time. The bit at the end where maleficence transforms into a dragon is awesome.

The Damned United opens at the end of the month.

From the best-selling and critically acclaimed novel by David Peace, The Damned United is directed by Tom Hooper and stars Michael Sheen as the legendary, opinionated football manager Brian Clough, with Timothy Spall as his right hand man, only friend, and crutch Peter Taylor.

Set in 1960s and 1970s England, The Damned United tells the confrontational and darkly humorous story of Brian Cloughís doomed 44 day tenure as manager of Leeds United, the reigning champions of English football. Previously managed by his bitter rival Don Revie (Colm Meaney), and on the back of their most successful period ever as a football club, Leeds had an aggressive and cynical style of football - an anathema to the principled yet flamboyant Brian Clough, who had achieved astonishing success as manager of Hartlepool and Derby County building teams in his own vision with trusty lieutenant Peter Taylor.

Taking the Leeds job without Taylor by his side, with a changing room full of Donís boys, would lead to an unheralded examination of Cloughís belligerence and brilliance over 44 days.

The book is embellished isn't it?

Most recent film I watched was 'Into The Wild', directed by Sean Penn and starring an impressive Emile Hirsch.

I am a massive fan of Penn's recent work, movies such as '21 Grams', 'Mystic River', and 'The Assasination of Richard Nixon' were all superb, and a great run of films.

Haven't seen 'Milk' yet (Emile Hirsch is in that as well) but I shall endeavour to do so. I enjoy many of Gus Van Sant's movies, even if he is intentionally provocative at times.

Just watched Tropic Thunder. It didn't make me laugh all that much but it kept me interested throughout.

I thought Cruise's character was unfunny going by the clips I saw on Jonathan Ross but he did make me chuckle in the film.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned it yet but i watched green street 2 stand your ground last night,it's not very often the second film is better that the first but in this case it is.

More realistic than the first and much better without that yank in it.

On that note about the prison,i suppose it don't look that english but that's a minor detail to me,it's easy to pick holes in every film made when you think about it.

I thought the acting was much better and woman who played the evil cow as the prison guard done a good job.

White Noise II

No idea why I placed this on the old Love Film list as the first wasnít the best and the 2nd wasnít really much better either.   Although as recent horror goes itís probably one of the better films Iíve seen of late, which doesnít say much.

Bit of a mad concept.  Stare at the static of an un-tuned TV and listen and watch for the dead.  I already have a name for this and itís called Babestation where every night I get to watch a sketchy shaky image of some cosmetically amended blonde with a dead look in her eyes talk to the sub-human.  All for £2.99 a minute.

5/10

Anyone recommend any decent new horror?

Not really new but not many seem to have seen it, Canadian film called Cube. I always liked that one, although it's one of those you either love or hate. Has a 7.5 on imdb. Avoid the prequel and sequel like the plague though.

Another is a French film called 'Them' if you don't mind subtitles. Short film and takes a while to get going but very good I thought.

Thought The Mist was reasonable enough.

Edit - Not really a horror film but I thought Blindness was a good watch. More of a drama/mystery really but has some horror/unpleasant scenes in.

I watched King Of Kong, last night, basically about a guys attempt to beat the world record for Donkey Kong held for 20 years by a shify Nick Cave lookalike, lots of dodgy goings on and backstabbing, really worth a look if you have even a passing interest in video games.

Just watched Quantum of Solace, and I likey.

I do like the revamped tougher, rougher yet more sensitive Bond and I think that Daniel Craig pulls it off very well.

Being a bit of a bond fan, and not just the films but the whole bond persona, I know that the last two (which are also the first two) bond films along with sequels will see the raw bond develop into the cultured, sophisticated suave Connery type bond that we are so familiar with.

I am looking forward to the next movies and I hope that Daniel Craig stays as part of Bond's development.

I just watched "The Bank Job", starring the UK's premier action hero Jason Statham.

This man has it all: He can growl menacingly, he can ripple, and he has a hairy chest. What a man.

In fact I would go as far as to say he is in the top 2 active action heroes worldwide.

Not so much a film, but I started watching Band of Brothers on Blu-Ray tonight. I've seen the series before, but watching it again in high-def was immense. At the end of Ep. 1 where all the planes take off the sound was fucking awesome (through my stereo) and it sounded like my front room was going to take off.

I love films on planes. Managed to get through 3 on one of the flights to Tanzania, before falling asleep. The highlight was something from around 1942 about aliens threatening to blow up earth if we didn't embrace a peaceful form of international relations - any ideas what it was called, Reg maybe?

A no-brainer comedy always goes down well on flights too, I have wanted to see 'There Will Be Blood' for ages but couldn't be arsed with it when flying. And the planes where you can start watching any film at any time are awesome, its annoying if they have only two showings and you need a piss/nap.

I see they have re-made it with Keanu Reeves starring (not a good sign). But it does have Kathy Bates (a good sign) and John Cleese (a sort of goodish sign). Anyone seen it? Not that I'd watch it.

With films on planes I watched Sunshine on the flight to Chile. It's the worst film to watch on a 4" inch screen. Almost no dialogue, hardly any plot and lots of highly detailed special effects in which the characters are tiny.

Looking forward to In The Loop though. Out on the 17th April it's the film version of The Thick Of I but it does have Tony Soprano in it, no nonces and some top swearing.

I saw the original many years ago and thought it was a very good film and it must have been light years (excuse the pun) ahead of what anyone had seen at the time.

The director of "Let The Right One In" isn't the "Pan's Labyrinth" guy, although it is also very rich visually and has a dark storyline as that film does.

The "Pan's Labyrinth" director is Guillermo del Toro whos currently directing "The Hobbit" which is being done as 2 films.

Saw ĎCassí on DVD last night.  T'was ok if not slightly another generic variant on the hoolie culture and film.  Plenty of violence and a very good picture of football through the ages from the 70ís through to the late 90ís.

Definitely an interesting character although I got the impression watching the film and having read the book years ago that old Carol used more than a little artistic license to portray himself in a positive light and at the same time not incriminate himself in any naughty business, which I suppose is fairly snuff but not very believable.

6.5/10

Just literally got back myself.

Wasn't sure whether I wanted to watch it because it is fiction. It's no wonder the Leeds players have dismissed the book/film as they are depicted as smug, whiney little bitches.

Really enjoyed the interaction between Sheen and Broadbent (all be it brief).

It's a film - I've seen and read a lot of Brian Clough interviews, articles and books and some of it didn't relate to the Clough I imagine and remember (although he was at the end of his career during my earliest football following days!) but I'd recommend it.

Anyone else seen The Machinist and if so what did you think of it?

Iíve never seen a film quite that quite sets me on edge as it did.  Not the sort of squeamishness you sometimes get with a decent horror or thriller but a real jittery paranoia, although that may well have been the effects of last weekend in the Dam.

Christian Bale is a sickening sight at that weight.  Some of the scenes in the mirror when you can see how much his collar bone is protruding and spine is disturbing when you imagine how much weight he had to lose for the role.   Certainly Iíd imagine it as life threatening and couldnít imagine getting to that sort of weight.

Story wise itís a grim old ride all the way through and not one for the depressed or those courting.  Itís an original script although I did feel it was dragging through the middle a bit and does end a little flatter than I felt all of that tension was leading to but in many ways it was quite apt the way it did end. 7.5/10

Saw The damned united.Twas good,not amazing.Sheen was brilliant as usual.
Still left the cinema feeling slightly underwhelmed though.Don't know why but football films just don't seem to work.They did a good job of portraying the relationship between Clough and Taylor and it was affecting but i suppose because you know the outcome [Clough/Taylor lead Forest to glory and Don Revie ends up selling out to the Arabs] it loses a bit of its power.Plus its nothing compared to watching one of my fellas football videos from that era.

Having said all that Clough is a legend and it was good to see Taylor getting some credit which he doesn't always get,so all in all an ok watch  :)

The wig on the actor who played Billy Bremner was dodgy,Bremner wasn't blond was he  ??? He was far to Scottish to be blond!!

And Flash Gordon - which I hadn't seen for years and has left me craving more camp sci-fi - any suggestions?
  Barbarella, cant get any stranger than that.

Not a film but a complete series "LOST IN SPACE" (I am referring to the 1960's version) :alien:

Having said all that Clough is a legend and it was good to see Taylor getting some credit which he doesn't always get,so all in all an ok watch  :)

I was glad Taylor got some credit too, people forget about his contribution, he was vital for Clough's success.  Together they would gave been bloody great for England.

Saw The damned united.Twas good,not amazing.Sheen was brilliant as usual.
Still left the cinema feeling slightly underwhelmed though.Don't know why but football films just don't seem to work.They did a good job of portraying the relationship between Clough and Taylor and it was affecting but i suppose because you know the outcome [Clough/Taylor lead Forest to glory and Don Revie ends up selling out to the Arabs] it loses a bit of its power.Plus its nothing compared to watching one of my fellas football videos from that era.


You've just spoilt the plot for me now. Thanks!  >:(

I just couldn't get over the basis of why the daughter was kidnapped in 'Taken'. It definitely wanted to be more of an action flick than a crime thriller, but it could never choose which it wanted, which is why it's only an average film.

Yes but why did they pick women that weren't from the Eastern block? Apparently because they're worth more but surely it's cheaper to source the other kind of women, who they could bulk sell?

Neeson's suspicions of going to Paris were all but confirmed. It was far too OTT and unbelievable. If it was an all out action flick then the plot would be less open to scrutiny, but it wanted to be more sophisticated than that and it didn't work in my opinion.

I've not read the book, but I'm sure it would be better.

ad a monster film weekend and caught...

Death Race:  I cannot recommend this enough.  Based on the original B movie it does exactly what it says on the tin, superbly.  It wonít win any awards but itís thoroughly entertaining and marvellous far fetched.  A Lovejoy-licious 8/10

The Bucket List: Slow, predictable but reasonably well done.  Should and could have been a lot better, especially with the cast involved but even still it quite an enjoyable watch and prompted me to write my own list.  6.5/10

Saw V: Mercifully short.  Not bad, not great and effectively a clone of every other film in the series with the added spin of ensuring the series has a foundation/excuse to continue.  Saw VI is already wrapped up and will go about wrapping up the loose ends.  I think itíll prove to be the end of series.  5/10

Finally watched Der Baader Meinhof Komplex last night and probably loved it a bit too much. Despite it being the best part of two and a half hours long, it really doesn't get boring. If anything it feels like they tried to cram in too many 'attacks' and probably rushed German Autumn a bit much and as such failed to convey its impact.

The film was made even more special by Baader using the word 'Fotze' every 2 minutes.

If subtitles don't put you off, I thoroughly recommend it.

Somers town is very short, but has great characters and direction, makes bits of london look very evocative. Shane Meadows is always worth a watch.

JCVD is bizarre, I'm not sure whether it's a film, an autobiography or a swipe at the media and hollywood. I'm guessing it's a bit of all three, and it's definately 'a film for Belgium'. His little speech at the end of chapter 3 is very convincing.

What's JCVD then?

All I can think of is that Justin Collins has confused the monkeys at bristol zoo with local ladies, and has caught something nasty as a result. And has somehow spun it into one of those all too common Belgian anti-holloywood flicks, with the subplot of his rotting cock interwoven into the general storyline.

No?

Probably worth watching for Rachel McAdams, who remains very fanciable. But then all the gains by casting her are almost entirely offset by Ben Affleck and his massive jaw being in it.

Its about an American that goes to India to train Indians to sell crappy American products.

Its kind of what I am doing but without the crappy American products and that I am not American.

I have people based offshore in india calling me at work with technical issues. Does the language barrier not frustrate you?

Also, no offence to anyone indian but the accent grates on me a bit sometimes.  :/

To be honest its much easier speaking face to face than over the phone so I don't really have many problems. I have been here since the middle of January so have got used to the accent.

The one thing that is kind of annoying is the Auto Rick drivers who haven't got the faintest idea where they are going in their own city! The fact they speak barely any English is an understandable challenge but the good ones who take me where I ask without trying to get me to go to their family's shops always get a nice tip from me and you get a geniune good feeling when you see the smile on their faces as these people earn an absolute pittance.

Also - as outsourcing is to save the company money in wages does that mean theres a huge gap in wages between you and the people directly under you as you are on a UK salary (and probably a good one seeing as you have to travel to offshore) and they are on an indian salary (altho its probably good by their standards).

Well I am actually on a Luxembourg salary and benefits which is way better than the UK for a start.

I have heard what an Indian salary is and their benefits are terribly poor for UK and Lux standards (maybe about 3-4k Euro a year) but bearing in mind the extremely low cost of living in India its not so bad but they are taken advantage of - for example some of them have to come into work this weekend and won't get paid overtime for it which I think is shocking and bearing in mind these people live pretty far away from Bangalore and use the weekend to visit their families as well which makes it worse.

I believe that the company is saving something like a million dollars per person per year for outsourcing to India.

I bought and watched London to Brighton at the weekend. It was one of the bleakest if not the bleakest thing I've ever watched.

All the characters were so hopeless, it was well acted and it was done in this gritty social realism style that meant it seemed much more real than some ridiculously plotted horror film.

Sat down and watched ĎThe Air I Breatheí last night with Bacon, Whitticker, Fraiser, Geller and Garcia.  Based on an ancient Chinese Proverb about emotions being the cornerstone of this and that.

Not bad the performances were all pretty good.  Fraiser especially surprised me Not since California Man has he been as good as he was in this performance
as a gangster with the ability to see the future.

That said cracking cast and a great concept do no make a great film and it didnít live up to my expectations.  Reminiscent of a Crash clone but not quite as good 6.5/10

We should do a TEF film club. Pick a film each week and then discuss it like intellectuals.

Maybe I'm being a bit harsh because I know it was done by Mel Gibson who's a bit of a mentalist, but I wasn't too bothered about Apocalypto. It was like someone had read a book on foreshadowing, metaphor and probably other clever things which I can't think of the names of at the moment because I'm very very drunk, but hadn't really understood subtlety. All felt a bit shoved in your face. Saying that, 10/10 on how many different angled shots you can have of people running through jungles.

It's called "What Becomes of the Broken Hearted?"

Temuera Morrison obviously returned but Lee Tamahori didn't and the sequel suffered because of this (in my opinion).

Tamahori hasn't really recovered from this.... http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/4746004.stm

This weekend I watched:

Role Models - the Mrs' choice, and a very poor one at that.  Not funny.

The Wrestler - Slightly overrated in my opinion.  An enjoyable and at times thought provoking film, but not worth the reviews it got.

The Reader - quite simply brilliant.

Is that a real film? Building on the popularity of Snakes on a Plane, and drawing inspiration from the mega giant squid remains recently discovered....please say yes

YES! YES! YES! It's also based on a mega shark, which is a rare species capable of eating planes and bridges.

I've not read the Da Vinci Code or Angels & Demons. The hype at the time put me off.

I finally got round to watching the Da Vinci Code the other month and it didn't inspire me to read the book. I couldn't really care if there was a church conspiracy, especially given the fact that the Bible has more holes in the plot than a Dan Brown novel supposedly has. I don't think I'll be going out of my way to watch Angels & Demons.

I also finally got round to watching Quantum of Solace last week. Was so un-Bond like and the action didn't really have me on the edge of my seat.

Watched it last night - have to say, I don't know loads about American history or Nixon (just what I've picked up from Futurama, and what I read on wiki after the film), but I think the film does a very good job of representing Nixon as something of a conflicting character. I found myself drawn to him personally, even feeling sorry for him as he crumbled in front of Frost.

Good watch, I'd recommend it.

Last night I watched..

The Univited - Wasn't too bad up until the plot twist which was very unexpected and I was initially a bit "wow" but actually I don't think it worked for me. Maybe I should see the japanese original.

Notorious - Was watchable. Have never been hugely interested in Notorious B.I.G and from what I heard his music wasn't amazing but a few tunes sounded OK. Lil Kim was quite hot in it and I'm not generally into black women. In a way it seemed quite an effort of spin to try and put a positive slant on the story of a guy who sold a lot of crack, cheated on his wife, didn't see his kid for long periods, seemed pretty materialistic and died very young. But I didn't know him and maybe he was very talented, haven't listened to much of his stuff before.

Have watched Happy Go Lucky, Star Trek (new one) and Eagle vs. Shark this weekend.

Happy Go Lucky wan't really my thing and a film I don't think I ever would have paid to see. It held my interest and was something different and the banter between the main character and her driving instructor was good nut at the end of the day I didn't think it was that good. I was curious about it though and satisfied my curiousity without getting disappointed as I didn't expect to like it loads.

In contrast I felt a bit let down by Eagle vs. Shark which I did actually buy, altho it was second hand. I expect I will sell it on. It was like Napoleon Dynamite, which I expected but it wasn't nearly as good. Think maybe characters acted too unnaturally and the plot didn't flow totally smoothly as a result as things didn't quite click for me. At least one really funny moment but that was rare in this film.

Star Trek was awesome. Action packed but with a plot you could get into. Made me with I had been interested in going to see it at the cinema when me gf suggested instead of just watching on computer.

I watched the remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre last night. Heard years ago it was really good and only just got round to watching it. It wasn't as good as I thought it might be and nowhere near as good as the original.

Overall I think the differences to the plot didn't improve the film but rather took away from it a bit. The classic "grandpa" scene where they're all sat round the table with her tied up wasn't even in it. The lead actress was hot tho and there were a few good bits where she was hiding from leatherface.

Saw the latest Indiana Jones film last night. I'd had the impression it was a bit crap but actually it was a really fun film. Watched the blu ray version and the bit where they go down waterfalls and the ending looked impressive.

Started watching Gomorrah in the early hours. A critically acclaimed Italian film about mobs and gangsters and stuff with several plot strands. Very quickly got bored of that so watched The Condemned instead, starring Stone Cold Steve Austin and Vinnie Jones in one of those reality TV / last man standing type efforts.

That's more like it.

I've bought Gomorrah but can't get beyond the first 20 minutes, so I've bought the book and then I'll watch the film.

Watched Independence Day last night (again), it's probably my biggest film guilty pleasure. Good ol' fashioned popcorn shite... But I love it, everything up to the attack is great :)

Saw Seven Pounds on Friday as well was a bit predictable but hey-ho decent enough sentimental Big Willie romp through.  6/10

Step Brothers last night, which I had reservations about before watching.  Not bad though at all.  I think itís one of those youíre going to love or hate but I enjoyed it and it has a few amusing moments in the film.  6.5/10

I watched Ghost Town on Saturday night. It was a shame to see Gervais doing a comedy film that was so hollywood ie too cheesy and not very funny. He should stick to doing really funny TV series not making unfunny hollywood movies. Or at least get more writing input into the script to make the jokes better. He looked a bit funny too like he had too much make up on.

I do "get" his comedy. I've seen the office loads of times, extras quite a lot of times, most of his stand up stuff and even a bit of his older stuff. Why do you assume if someone didn't like the film very much they don't understand his comedy?

I think if it was his film and he had had total control over it it would have been better. But there should have been more jokes and they should have been funnier and it was a bit cheesy.

Why do hollywood comedies always have to have this really obvious moral bolted on to them. The point of a comedy should be funny. ::)

Having a moral or message can be done eg the Extras Christmas special but it isn't necessary to have a good comedy.

It is pretty lame. The production values are mostly high but the dialogue is bad, the acting is sometimes crap and the plot isn't that good. Overall its a bit like an episode of buffy or charmed or something, just a bit less silly, with a bigger budget and better looking leads.

I watched Fast Food Nation last night. It felt a bit contrived how they had written all these issues about how bad the fast food industry is into one plot. Also, the plot was not really that strong. It was just about watchable however and not the most boring thing ever (which I thought it might be for the first 5 minutes). At the end of the film there is some very graphic real life footage of slaughter of cattle.

A big screen manga adaptation is always going to be difficult but it didn't do too badly in keeping true to the form, albeit on the big screen.

My major criticism was that it would be far better off as a television series rather than a trilogy of films, it got far too tedious to enjoy watching the whole thing linked up.

Hotel was great, but had the outward bound flight time put back 2 hours only a couple of days before which resulted in us missing the last ferry to Skopelos that night and were put up in a shit hole in Skiathos. Also meant we missed a big chunk of the next day and when you only go for a week that's annoying.

Strangely, I managed to watch it from beginning to end without wanting to switch off and I can see what Shyamalan was trying to do but it's very, very poor.

I watched Waltz With Bashir last night Si. It is really very good and I would really recommend it but also pretty traumatic in parts. I don't often sit still and in silence the whole way through the credits but this time I did.



Much like the characters I often felt completely detached from what was happening in the film, which I guess was the success of using animation. Then the ending when it switched to live scenes made you realise these were very real accounts.

Very thought provoking.

I saw Dodgeball at the cinema about an hour after watching us beat Bristol City 2-1 at Ashton Gate (Henderson match)... I could hardly focus due to alcohol consumption and the enjoyment of ending a 5 year(ish) run without beating them.

Dodgeball is immature but good enough to watch.

I've wathced a few films this week:

Death Warrant - Normally I like van Damme films, they seem to be so bad they're good. This was an exception to that rule and the film was very bad.

Interstate 60 - Wasn't one I'd heard of but expected better from a film with Christopher Lloyd and Gary Oldman in it. It was only just about watchable.

Jumper - It looked bad but the short run time appealed to me. Had so much potential to be a decent cat and mouse action thriller, instead it was predictable and uninspiring. The book is probably a lot better. Still, Rachel Bilson made for very interesting eye candy which redeemed the film a little bit.

Not sure what to watch tonight, hopefully I will find something decent.

Pearl Harbour must be the most slagged-off film I've ever encountered - same goes for Michael Bay. I personally don't get it on either front. Bay's detractors usually sound disgusted, as though he was a serial puppy-kicker or something.

He is much worse than a serial puppy-kicker.  Making Pearl Harbour should come with a minimum tariff of 15 years.  Serial puppy kicking I would give a minimum of 10.

Watched that the other day, good stuff it was too. Only took an interest in it when I read it had Bill Murray in but turned out to be pretty good.

So, transformers last night was pretty much what I expected. Fun to watch at the cinema, good CGI, lots of action... Not a brilliant plot but I didn't really get bored.

I'd read the bad reviews and although I've got the first one on dvd, I don't think it's that good so I went with low expectations and didn't take it seriously. I have to say though, there is some pretty ridiculous stuff in this film.

Here is a selection of some of the most outrageous stuff...

* Megan Fox wearing extreme amounts of lip gloss
*Shia LeBouf getting straddled by a species-esque deceptacon
* A comic duo of transformers who talk in black accents\slang
* An old transformer with a walking stick who talks in a northern accent and says "bollocks"
* Megan Fox carrying a little transformer around like it is a Paris Hilton style chiuaua
* 4 or 5 robots combine in an ultra-mega tranformer that then begins hoovers up half the sahara desert
* Oh yeah btw transformers can teleport.
* The crazy conspiracy theory dude (think the dad from Independence Day) character radios to warships in the ocean who have no idea who he is and asks them to launch a top secret weapon in order to "save a gazillion lives"
* Transformers fight on (and trash) the great pyramid

I also watched Transformers last night. Thought a certain part of the film dragged, then once that got resolved the conclusion of the film went far too quickly.

Was a good fun filled action packed film though. Agent Simmons (conspiracy theory guy) and the voice of Jetfire (the old transformer) are both played by John Turturro.

A classic film and who could also forget the wonderful tv series Monk?

On an aside I see Jeff Bridges is to be in a film called The Giver. Anyone ever read this? Seemed to copy a fair bit from Nineteen Eighty-Four.

On another aside, I will watch The Wrestler tonight.

I'm looking forward to that. I am sure that I'd enjoy as I'll take it as it is: Action + big robots + explosions and stuff.

I can only agree with those bigging-up Wall_E, fantastic film. It's interesting how despite there being relatively little dialogue, so much is conveyed by the characters.

Just watched The Wrestler, very good film. I'd put off watching it for a while but glad I finally got round to it.

Innit.

Different movie, but for the same reason I think that Tom Hanks is ace for what he did in Castaway. I found his (almost) solo performance very impressive.

That was pretty immense. 3 hours+ but very watchable. Kingsley is epic, some of the other characters weren't so special.

I'm glad I finally got round to watching it, 4.5/5.

I do like the dodgy old cinematography, some of the scene change pauses are classics. On the whole a great job though Dicky.

Updated my LoveFilm account to 2 DVD's at a time. It's proper good this service.

Tonight I'm watching Run Ronnie Run. It's a spin-off from a TV show called Mr. Show. The film stars David Cross who is awesome as Dr. Tobias FŁnke, the "analrapist" in Arrested Development.

I'm interested by this film merely because Cross and co-writer Bob Odenkirk disowned the film after its completion.

Run Ronnie Run was a bit shit, loads of cameos though - even David Baddiel turns up for a mini-second.

Worth watching for a small weird segment involving Jack Black doing a Dick Van Dyke skit singing a song called "Kick Him in the Cunt"

Really odd structure for a film. It has flashbacks a bit like what they do on Family Guy.

I thought Juno was quite well done, and Nick and Nora was downright awful.  I think there is a habit at the mo for film makers to see a film well done and essentially take the same idea, change the characters and the context, and make a "whole new" film.  This has really happened with Knocked Up, Zach and Miri, Superbad, Pineapple Express etc, and previously happened with Anchorman, Dodgeball, Wedding Crashers, Zoolander etc. 

A lot of these films exist simply to make money, and have no imagination or wit.  Thankfully, there are alternatives.  I saw a great Swedish film at a small independent cinema the other night called Everlasting Moments.  A terrific, original and witty film - highly recommended.

Also, best film of the last couple of years is Lars and the Real Girl.7

That is all.

Watched Doctor Strangelove again last week, found it extremely funny, and worth another viewing. 

George C. Scott as General Turgidson puts in an absolute classic performance, but rather too close to the truth.


Also saw Transformers and wondered at the mesmerising acting skills of Megan Fox, still trying to understand what the film was supposed to be about and was very disappointed when the character played by Isabel Lucas left the plot.

Dr. Strangelove should be in everybody's top 10 films, most of Kubrick's work is fucking brilliant, and that's probably my favourite.

Sat and watched Anita and Me on BBC1 tonight. A bit quaint for the sake of it in bits, but sort of necessary to show the differences between the cultures the girl's caught between. Or something. Good watch anyway.

I watched Sicko yesterday. I thought it was really good.

A lot of people seem to slate Michael Moore and its true he has a typically american unsubtle style and he picks his evidence very selectively and might seem to be working towards a certain predecided conclusion.

But I think his documentarys are good - he constructs convincing arguments and as far as I'm concerned the messages are good - americas gun culture is fucked up, the war on terror was a smokescreen for increasing americas political and economic power, people shouldn't be dying in one of the worlds richest countrys just because they can't afford to pay for an operation themselves.

There is a funny bit in Sicko where Moore is interviewing this French doctor about their free healthcare and he asks "do you think this could happen in America?" and the doctor says "no". Then on the voiceover Moore says something like "I could feel his seething anti-Americanism".  :soapy tit wank:

Yeah Downfall is badass. The performance of the guy who plays Hitler is excellent.

It is quite a long time to concentrate and read subtitles tho. It's worth it but its one of those films you have to commit a big chunk of your evening to.

Have you seen Black Book? Also a good foreign language WW2 film but very different to Downfall. It's fictional spy thriller with lots of action by the bloke who made Starship Troopers (and Robocop)! Apparently it was like the highest grossing film ever in Holland or something. Its a lot better than I probably just made it sound.  :D

Probably not. How many trilogys can you think of where if you thought the second wasnt half as good the third was a return to form? There must be an example but I can't ber bothered to rack my brains for it.

Only trilogy, for me, where the third is better than the second is the Die Hard trilogy, but I seem to be always in the minority on this.

She never complains when we go to the cinema that the screen is too big though. Bloody women logic.

I've just set the cabinet thing up, and she said jeez is it as wide as that? So i said no of course not....waited til she's half way up the stairs and said wider! I will be grateful for the big screen when i'm watching from the garden tomorrow night!

I found Spiderman 3 to be a dull borefest. Even if that's true at least it'll be a 50" HD dull borefest for you. Couldn't get the Mrs to go above 42" here as 50" would be "too big".

She never complains when we go to the cinema that the screen is too big though. Bloody women logic.

She's probably worried there will be more tv to dust  :w00t:

A very good film indeed,Robin williams is so versatile and under rated in my opinion..

Im hoping to watch taken in broad daylight tonight,it's based on a true story about 17 year old girl who gets kidnapped,her cleverness kept her alive as she befriended her captor.

It's called taken in broad daylight not the liam neeson taken.

Well i watched it last night and it was a half decent movie,I've just read up on the story on the net andthey seemed to have done a decent job of how thing's happened.

Anne Sluti was only seventeen,but she was very clever in what she done and kept a clear head,but you can't help thinking she was very lucky she did't end up dead.I suppose it comes down to your captor and how far you think you can push that boundary with them.

Im not sure your find it in the shops,I got it from online as it was a movie aired on the american liftime movie channel.

Not everyone's cup of tea,but if you like true stories then it's worth a watch.

The storyline isn't as complicated as I expected, but it was a well thought out film overall and it was quite clever.

On the slightly negative side Jodie Foster plays her character very well. I say negative because she annoys the fuck out of me usually, but even more in this role. You'll see what I mean.

On the one hand Cass didn't go down the usual football hooligan film route which made it different. On the other it just made it quite an unexciting story about a bloke who used to bash people about.

Had it's moments but it should have had more about the ICF in it, that's what people wanted to see. I didn't know whether to laugh at the ending it was cringeworthy yet amusing.

Back to the topic slightly, I watched the Hustler the other night because I'm ashamed to say I'd not seen before then. I quite enjoyed it.

I went to see Chicken Run for a date once when I was about 15. It was horrible, she was a complete minger. I only went as a favour for a mate. The lucky bastard got the fit one who then went and wanked him off in the cinema.

Yeah, all this having a go at George Bush Jr is very tiresome.

It is, for my money, the biggest bandwagon going and most of the pop-culture commentary on it was regurgitated, lowest common denominator tosh with one eye on resurecting a career or adding an edgy slant to a previously squeaky clean apolitical image.

Hello Green Day.

Anyway here is a good clip:

Yep. At first it was uniting - he was such an obvious hate figure and such an easy target. But soon after he started his second term I got bored of it and it was all totally passe.

I watched Rise of the Footsoldier the other day. Thought it was a bit crap really but it was amusing in a simple kind of way.

There were a couple of good scenes like when they bump into Millwall at the tube station near the start of the film.

Didn't realise until the text at the end of the film that its based on a true story. Then it made sense why the narritive was so meandering.

Two films at the weekend:

21 based on the book and directed by closet dog walker Kevin Spacey.   Wasnít expecting to like this but it was actually ok and ticked along nicely albeit fairly predictably.  Definitely worth a watch but it gets a

Mediocre 6.5/10 from me.

Inside Iím Dancing.  I wouldnít normally go near this.  A British film starring James McAvoy about the disabled.  I have to say though it was very good.  Funny, moving and a nice coming of age story mixed in there for good measure.  McAvoy is superb as is Steven Robertson who plays a lad with cerebral palsy brilliantly.  Not a blockbuster that will blow you away but if you fancy something a bit different this is well worth  gander

7.5/10

Clubbed was a lot better than I thought it would be, didn't try and sex up the violence, it just got on with it and told the story.

I wasn't convinced by the softee turned hard doorman thing though which was the flaw of the film I suppose, but it did the job and kept me reasonably amused for an hour and a half.

Succinct as promised, good work.

I watched 'Into the Wild Green Yonder' (4th Futurama film) earlier, and I enjoyed it as I have the rest. In fact, I was watching Futurama the other day (the space honey ep) and thought about how affecting I find it to be - some of the episodes can be quite emotional, something you don't really find in other shows of the same or similar genre.

I've watched a few things recently...

Saw the Beyond the Mat wrestling documentary someone on here recommended last night. I thought it was really good.

Watched the new Rambo the other day, which to be honest was shit. At least it was properly violent and not toned down. The best bit by far was Rambo ripping some blokes throat out with his bare hands.  :eek:

Saw Bruno on Tuesday night. I'd been looking forward to it for ages. I thought it was pretty funny but not quite as good as I'd hoped. I would have preferred it if there had been a bit more of the cleverer subtler humour and bit less of the crude blatant visual gags. Afterwards I was thinking maybe I preferred the Bruno stuff on Ali G in da USAii (if you liked Bruno you should consider getting this or at least look on youtube cos its pretty much all on there). Having said that tho there were some fucking hilarious bits like when he takes his baby on to the chat show. I will be interested to see if I like it more or less when the DVD comes out when my expectations aren't built up to the extreme.

If you're into that sorta thing hes done a couple of books that interview guys from different firms, talking about the state of affairs past and present. One was called Terrace Legends the other called Top Boys. I've got the latter and not read the former but Top Boys is a very good read with people from the obvious clubs plus some smaller clubs and european clubs giving their POV and its not all nostalgia about the old days or guys bragging about how hard they are a lot of it seemed pretty honest and up to date.

Yep, tis the extended edtions box set.  I was worried when they announced they were making the films and was delighted when I saw them.

Can't wait for next Saturday which has now fully booked for viewing.

Watched Groundhog Day earlier, never a chore watching.

I like the irony about being able to watch Groundhog Day over and over.

I watched Life Of David Gale at the weekend, thought it was brilliant.
Kevin Spacey is ace, there is only one film I can think of that he was in that I thought was shit and that was Glengarry Glen Ross. Awful film.

Went for a music documentary double bill and both were brilliant pieces of work which I would highly recommend.

First was Anvil, which a few have reviewed on here. Really good, funny but depressing at the same time.

Second was The Devil and Daniel Johnson. It was uber-great. Before, Daniel Johnson was the guy that Kurt Cobain publicised through a t-shirt. But the film documents his bizarre and sad life.

I came up with two to choose from (I do have quite a selection):

#1: A knights tale. Because it is light family humour and Shannyn Sassamaon (SP) is a bit fit.

#2: Constantine. Because............. well it's a bit good innit.


Choose now TEF. Be it #1 or #2, be sure to be quick now.

I watched the Anvil documentary last night. It was a bit depressing in parts like them playing to a room of about 3 or 4 people on their european tour and the lead singer trying a shitty telesales job in a desperate attempt to raise money to record a new album. But it was fairly good and had a lot of human interest. Thing is, since that came out I think they've got more of the big gigs they always wanted.

For a really good informative documentary about Metal I'd recommend the (crappily named) Metal: A Headbangers Journey.

One from Charlie Brooker's latest Guardian Column in which he suggests films that would be better than remaking Pelham 123. Excellent stuff:

Title Come Alive!

Synopsis God decides to grant evangelical preacher Will Ferrell the power to heal the sick with his fingertips. But the almighty's lightning bolt misses its target, hitting Will's penis instead. Now Will is cursed with the miraculous ability to cure any disease or fix any injury Ė but only if he has full sexual intercourse with the patient. Since Will is also a 45-year-old unmarried virgin with strong views on sex outside marriage, it won't be an easy ride!

Review What starts as a regulation gross-out comedy soon takes an unsettling turn as Will faces an agonising ≠ decision at his father's deathbed, before building to a frankly unbelievable conclusion in which a terrorist cell releases the Ebola virus in the local donkey sanctuary . . . and only one man can save the day.

I've got Let The Right One In to watch for tomorrow. Have very high expectations, partly due to this thread but everyone seems to be talking it up.

It is basically the best thing ever. I'm waiting for it to arrive from Play atm. Have it on my computer but wanna see the dvd special features. Hopefully there'll be some interview with the director or something. I've got the book too but haven't read it yet.

Ice spiders.

I was hoping that the "ice" could be referring to meth-amphetamine but alas nay. It was about giant spiders that live in an icy environment. They (the spiders) also seemed to be able to ski quite well. Apparently it was some crazy whacky military experiment gone wrong, with some crazy whacky scientists and stuff to make the plot. The head scientist was English was a thick toff accent, naturally.

It is bad, indeed it is beyond bad. Yet I just watched it, all of it.

ICE SPIDERS!!!

I agree. It is a cool film.

I got the extended cut a while ago but ended up selling it cos the original cut is actually a lot better. There is actually a disclaimer at the start where Ridley Scott says "this is not the director's cut... there a few extras scenes that people might find interesting..." basically saying the studio wanted to put out this version and he managed to get them to put this in so he can artistically distance himself. It's not that the extra bits are really shit it's just that they don't add much at all and they really disrupt the flow of the story.

Saw "The Happening" on Sky the other night. Absolutely crap after early promise, 3/10.

In fact M. Night Shyamalan fluked the Sixth Sense and made shoddy movies thereafter. Only Unbreakable was any good, but even then I really, really hated the lack of finality in that.

I do enjoy the odd 80's cheesy movie. For example, The Wraith was on BBC 1 t'other day. Ok it was rubbish really, but somehow also quite captivating.

I like to think that The Happening would have been a really good book, but it was really bad.

It looked very pretty et al but Mark Wahlberg and the usually brilliant and always lovely Zooey Deschanel are atrocious.

For what it's worth, I think that Signs is Shymalan's best work to date.

I also watched Children of the Corn, which I expected to find really creepy but actually it was rubbish and the special effects at the end when you see the demon were such an anti-climax and just so unbelievably dated it was laughable.

Currently watching Street Kings.

The film itself seems OK enough, but there is something deeply unsettling about Hugh Laurie playing a serious role in a yank accent. I just stop expecting him to get into a Prince of Wales from blackadder type character.

He's not done it yet though, still waiting for him to call for Edmund Blackadder.

I finally watched Let The Right One In last night which I had added to my lovefilm list after reading the synopsis. It's been recommended by a few people since I added it so I was looking forward to finally watching it.

I quite enjoyed the intrigue of the whole thing and it escaped using the cliche that other films of its type use.

I didn't really think 'wow that was a great film' though, the film's hype is a tad undeserved which may be born out of the foreign/cult film hype scenario. I'm not sure how the book would play out, the film could have done with a bit more suspense which the book may have.

The whole idea of someone with bad motives gaining access to the sanctuary of a family home is a good one for a horror/thriller.

Films discussed were those such as Donnie Darko, Napoleon Dynamite and Withnail & I (from memory). I think the eventual conclusion was that it was annoying if you said you didn't rate such a film and the person who did acted liked you'd just defecated on the Pope or had completed a similar faux pas.

Incidentally I like two out of three of these films but they're not the most amazing thing I've ever seen just because others seem to think so.

Platoon on digital last night one of my all time favourites partly driven by the old speccy game that came free with the soundtrack (Smokey Robinson) and that my parents wouldnít let me watch the film as I was to young.

God I remember waiting for the release of that game for months and it came with a free poster to boot.

Anyway, top film that has stood the test of time and while itís not as heavy going as Apocalypse now itís a solid watch.  8.5/10

Tonight I have Underworld Rise of the Lycans.  The original is one of those films I shouldn't admit to liking but it's one of those pointless and stupid romps that are enjoyable all the same.

Overall tho I found it to be a good laugh.


I watched Orphan last night which I expected to love ever since seeing the trailer and had been looking forward to. I thought it was quality. My girlfriend guessed the twist halfway through and said it to me but that didn't ruin the film. The girl who plays the lead character was so creepy, it was great.

this weekend i have watched the following
Inside- Grousome french film abut a pregnant woman who is in a car crash, another person in the crash also pregant, looses her child in the crash so she goes after the women to take her baby by any means possible, not for the feint hearted, one of the most horrific films ive seen,
that was until 10 minutes later i watched a Japaneese film called Grotesque, its a film with a minimal plot and only 3 actors, which involved 80 minutes of a guy torturing the fuck out of a boyfriend and girlfriend.
Now i have a strong stomach when it comes to things and not much crosses the line in my eyes, but these two films were very very close to being too much for me.

so today a little bit of light heated comedy, observe and report with seth rogan, it was ok, reasonably entertaining, shit story line mind.

Underworld Rise of the Lycans, couldnít help myself after I found the first Underworld an enjoyable nonsense but the sequel is utter garbage.  Great sets and backdrop but the ďplotĒ was akin to wanking in a toilet roll. 2/10

Saw Hide & Seek shortly after with De Niro, which was again a let down.  It was like  a bad made for TV film that ripped off half a dozen other similar films.  A big Meh 4/10

Watched Funny People today

I always seem to talk about the length of the movie and this one, for a comedy, is a mammoth 146 minutes long! But I really enjoyed this one and would recommend it to anyone who's got time for Judd Apatow's current film movement.

This is Adam Sandler's best film for years.

If you didn't like it, then Casino Royale may be more up your street.  I would suggest avoiding all other Bond movies, they are shit.  Casino Royale was the only one I have ever liked, mainly because it's not like a Bond movie.

I agree with The Live and Let Die suggestion, Roger Moore's first and finest. Bit different from your average bond film too, more battling drug imports than crazy man steals nukes. Haven't seen it for years though and don't really remember if the plot makes much sense.

Most the Connery ones are fairly safe pretty good entertainment, not sure why DaVe doesn't like Diamond are Forever, although all I remember about it is that his fake family motto is "The World is Not Enough". Goldfinger is definitely the highlight.

Tucked in there is On Her Majesty's Secret Service which is definitely worth a watch. It's almost brilliant, but it just keeps falling short. The end always gets me though.

I've got a soft spot for The Spy Who Loved Me, mainly because it was one of the ones I had taped off the telly (along with Live and Let Die) growing up. I'm not sure I'd go as far as actually recommending it though. I love the music which plays when the sea station rises out of the water, I think they use it in Moonraker too.

Anyhoo, that's enough.

All the Connery ones are very good. Dr. No, From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball and You Only Live Twice is the best run of films in the series, easily.

Of course the family motto thing is from On Her Majesty's Secret Service but you knew that really didnt you Ben.

Goldfinger is my favourite as well.

Tucked in there is On Her Majesty's Secret Service which is definitely worth a watch. It's almost brilliant, but it just keeps falling short. The end always gets me though.

Its a good film and I'm never quite sure if having Lazenby as lead helps it or ruins it. It follows the book almost word for word and is the only one Pete Hunt directed. I think if Connery had been in it, the action would have seemed better but I dont think I could have bought Connerys Bond falling in love and getting married.

Lazenby does deliver in the last scene though. He gets it perfect.

Quote
Is it possible to watch all 22 bond films over a weekend? Should I try?

I dont reckon it would be. Alot of the older ones are only 1 hour 45 ish but the newer ones run closer to 2 hours 15. Probably averages out at 2 hours per film. If you can stay awake for 44 hours and do nothing else you might have a chance. Have watched them all in a week though.

In the loop.Was very funny.

Let the right one in.Very dark and not much fun.Suppose its usual for vampire movies to be sexy and silly and this certainly wasn't.The acting by the children in it was most impressive.

Read about a film called Berlin 36 on the BBC website.Its about how in the olympics of 1936 the nazis wouldn't allow a Jewish girl to represent them and instead made a bloke pretend to be a girl to take part.But of course.

Great line from the bloke though 'For three years i lived the life of a girl.It was most dull'.  :)

Cassel is a great actor, have you seen La Haine and Irreversible?

Think I saw La Haine in my younger years.  Its very rare that I get time (and away from the missus who wouldn't watch a french film) to watch anything thats my choice.  Glad I did.  Ill try to catch up with irreversible.

We should really start some sort of simple online TEF database of films,  ranked in order with forum members comments after each one.

In effect our very own IMDB

i suggested this about 20 pages ago but as if anyone could be arsed :)

I reckon I could knock something up. Need to dig out my copy of Dreamweaver, but a simple php/mySQL effort shouldn't take too much effort.

Well, I could be arsed and the TEF IMDB is now a work in progress. Thanks to Barry for providing the hosting.

http://www.thetownend.com/samdygray/mdb/index.html

I'd like people's suggestions as to what you'd like to see included. I'm planning on just including film title, comments and rating out of 10 at the moment. Other stuff could be incorporated though.

Let me know your thoughts :)

Watched Hamlet 2 and ultimately enjoyed it.

It's pretty standard until the final 15 minutes when the film reaches the performance of Hamlet 2.

I can see why people will dislike it and Coogan's yank accent isn't great but I personally thought it good viewing all the same.

I watched Frost/Nixon which I thought was a decent dramatisation. It's a bit of a strange concept for a Hollywood film but I quite enjoyed it.

Morning folks.

Watched two last night. The first was the good documentary Biggie & Tupac which I had seen before but not for a few years... It always strikes me how nice Christopher Wallace's background was.

The second was the remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still... I thought it was pretty bad.

For some reason I cracked up at the bit where the blonde swinger woman starts hitting him with the belt.

Spent most of the rest of the film in shock though.

Just put on Cast Away.  Seems to have a lot of critics but the couple of times I've seen it I've really liked it.  Was going to go to bed but don't like the thought of getting up for work.  Denial is great.

Observe and Report looks like a pile of crap, much like Paul Blart: Mall Cop (I will still probably watch it though). I saw a trailer for Drag Me To Hell, I'm not a horror fan particularly but I thought that looked decent.

Caught Inglorious Basterds at the weekend and it has to be up there with Tarantinosí Reservoir Dogs.  Brilliantly shot throughout, great story with the usual Tarantino spin but not to indulgent and features some great over the top acting.

Definitely his take on classic war stories like the Great Escape so if you like that sort of thing youíll love this.

The ending left me a little shell-shocked.  If anyone has seen it or is going to see it then let me know what you think as I really quite wasnít expecting it all to pan out like it did.  8.5/10





Title: Re: Films films filmsy films.
Post by: Rich Pullen on Monday, September 14, 2009, 13:36:59
A lot of his critics think that Tarantino is getting lazy and Inglorious proves this further. The guy is an unbelievable filmmaker so has more pressure than most to make classic films.

I saw it and really, really enjoyed the film. It's a long haul and it could have been trimmed down in places but it was still good.

I.B. is worth seeing for Christoph Waltz's performance alone. Fassbender, Laurent and Pitt put in good shifts too.

My only problem was Eli Roth as Donny Donowitz, I didn't rate him in what is a very cool role that could've gone to an actor as opposed to a director/bit-part actor.

Good film Defiance. I watched the good the bad and the weird at the weekend, a korean remake of the Leone film set in the 20's. Well it's certainly weird! Got my directors cut of Watchmen through the post today, not seen it but looking forward to it immensely.

Drag Me To Hell wasn't very good. Obviously horrors can be a bit thin on the plot side of things but the way stuff got tagged on to the story as it went on was stupid. Apart from trying to make you jump in a few places the whole idea and the ending was very lame.

It was all too Buffy or Charmed without the tongue in cheekiness that comes with those.

Defiance was good, probably could have been twenty minutes shorter though.

Lots of faces I recognised in that, including the weird looking woman from High Fidelity.

Lies and Illusions,give this a miss,I think christian slater must be cringing after appearing in this,the acting was way over the top and as wooden as can be.I really hate film's like this when the plot is half decent yet the acting and cinematography is nothing short than being amateurish.

Fake fight scenes/Camera always jumping about/guns that never need reloading and nobody can shoot straight unless they are at point blank range.

It seems they spent the whole budget on hiring slater and gooding and then cut corners on the rest of the film.

Angels and Demons,this film was top notch and kept me glued all the way through,tom hanks is such a good actor and very underated in my opinion.

Lies And Illusions (dont bother) Angels and Demons (dont miss this one out)

Saw The Messengers last night, which had made for TV written all over it.  Family move to the sticks in old school creepy house, kids see ghosts, ghosts bother family and ended with ghosts not actually being that bad.

Unoriginal, slow moving and as predictable as the next destination of that peeping brown turtleís head.
