very topical of you, looking forward to your poster  ;)



Good football (soccer) movie. Michael Sheen is great, as is Timothy Spall. Some of you football fans will like it, Mooley check it out. I went back and watched some of the original footage of Brian Clough, Sheen looks exactly like him.

Check it out though its a good one

True Grit. Pretty much what I thought of it has been stated:
-Dark humor. Loved the smart ass remarks from Bridges. "I don't know this man."
-Rich dialogue, though I could've used some subtitles for when Jeff Bridges spoke.
-Misperceived from the commercials as a gun slinger movie, though the actions it did contain were really good.
-Liked the cinematography in a couple scenes. And the soundtrack was moderate, but with nothing too memorable that caught my attention.
-Towards the end seemed a little bit predictable for me, but I remembered that it was a novel and they're kinda like that and I won't blame the Coens on that.
-I was into the whole major focus on the girl. Then again, I've never seen the original/read the book, so I really knew nothing about the film aside from it being a remake of the original movie with The Duke.
-The movie was definitely better then most movies that do come out today, and the Coens always know how to make a movie, though I will say they have done better and this is not one of my favorite films from them.

I kinda wish I didn't pay $10 to see this, and just waited for it at the dollar theatre. I give it a 3/5.

I can't decide on whether I liked Black Swan or not, but the copious amount of scenes of Natalie and Mila getting off was worth the cost of admission. Much more of a psychological suspense thriller than I would've thought. It started off strong and ended real well, but most of the theater laughed at a handful of scenes that I don't think were intended to be funny, myself included. That always makes me feel that a movie failed to deliver correctly. I want to say Natalie should get the Oscar, she was fully immersed in this role, but I dunno. I haven't seen too many movies in the running for the Oscars this year.

Can't wait to see what the future holds for Christopher Nolan, that guy is a genius.
This is sarcasm?
Uhm, I'm afraid it's not.. why ?




I know that he already has an impressive resume, that's why I (everyone) love him so much. But he's still a young guy (40 years old) with a hopefully a lot of stuff in him. That's what I mean with my "future" remark. Look at guys like Spielberg, he made 10000 movies (maybe not all th?t great, but he has made a lot of quality stuff in his life) and I hope Nolan will do the same.

Nolan is not the next Speilberg.

JJ Abrams is the next Speilberg.

Saw True Grit yesterday.  I really liked it.  Just a solid classic western.  Same pacing, stupid/funny dialogue, boring/action quotient, twists and payoffs.  good stuff.
I thought it wasnt just him solo, shouldve stuck with my og thought.

I like True Grit too. The dialog, manner of speaking (lack of contractions, cadence) gave it a nice style. My only criticism was the snake scene at the end. The CGI snakes felt comic-booky like an Indiana Jones movie or something. Seemed like a distinct break in style. I would have preferred a single real snake that just coiled and struck as she pulled the corpse toward her.

Saw "Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest' last night and found it as enjoyable as the first two. Over all a pretty good series.

Just watched bad boy bubby, All I gotta say is mindfreak. It's roughly about a man whos been lied to for three decades by his mother about how the air outside is dangerous so instead of teaching him anything she makes him stay in the house til he's 30 then at which point his drunk dad comes back and he winds up cling wrapping them, see movie for more

That scene where she rips her mom's portraits of her off the wall while manically screaming "SHUUUT UUUUUP!" was straight cornball. I had a really hard time taking the movie seriously after that, even though the ending was really well executed. Also I thought the CGI transformation into the "black swan" was kind of weird and unnecessary. I feel that with a psychological thriller of that type it's better if some things are left to the imagination. A subtler treatment of the distinction between the protagonist's perceived and actual reality tends to make the film more immersive and creates more dramatic tension in my eyes.

spent the xmas holidays re-watching a load of movies I loved from back in the day.  For the most part they didn't disappoint (although the wife thought they were pretty much all shite)

Gave it a go the other night. Definitely better than the average sports movie, but I was pretty put off by all the lovey dovey dialogue between Clough and his assistant. Just a little bit too melodramatic I guess, but definitely solid.

saw 'bleu'. hated it. wondering if i should even bother to begin 'white'.

i really didn't buy the story at all. the woman's actions make no sense.
the stupid blank screen mozart motifs the blatant and expected metaphors
made me feel absolutely nothing. i found it to be incredibly out of touch with
reality, and a shitty boring french film that masturbates all over itself.

A couple I saw lately that were delicious...

This old one by Ozu called "I was born, but..."  It's about new kids in town getting bullied by this gang of nogoodniks:

   



English down and outters pissing about and arguing with each other.  Both these movies are sort of everyday slice of life type deals, just in different contexts.

Also, seconding the Bad Boy Bubby recommendation, and True Grit was a good time.

The last good movie I saw was a review of a movie.   Harry Plinkett's 100+ minute review of star wars episode 3 was pure bliss from beginning to end.

I was a big fan of The Host, so I watched Bong Joon-ho's latest. He's really good at telling a touching, even funny family story that's also really creepy and fucked up at the same time. Fans of Hitchcock would enjoy.
