I eat, drink and sleep movies. But I call them films.
Some of my reviews have question marks instead of commas, for this and other in-corrections in grammar, I apologise.
I like films and I like talking to other people who like films about films! If you don't really like films you are at the wrong place. All my reviews are based on my own opinion, if you don't like it, you know what to do but please don't be nasty and try and keep your remarks short and intelligent.
Please don't add me just to increase your numbers, I will only add you/ask for you friendship if I like your style (Not because you are naked, although, feel free to send me naked pictures of yourself if you like ;o).
Learn the rules before you play the game!
I look forward to communicating with you in the future! ;o)
PS. I'm not a troll and I don't have lots of other profiles and other such nonsense. I'm not interested nor will I tolerate anti-social networking!
Oi, Flixster, sort the list function out!!!!!!!
Riding the cusp of acceptably is something Woody Allen films are good at and this is a perfect example but then to take any of it too seriously would be foolish. The story is great, with consistently funny scenes. Allen himself is particularly good. However, while the jokes come thick and fast, they come a little too fast at times and there are times when it's just an incoherent mess. It's a combination of impatient directing and incompetent (OK, maybe just naive) editing. The 'hits' outweigh the 'misses' and it's pretty good for a first proper feature films (not counting the first two films due to one being voice-over work and the second being a 'mockumentry')
A visual poem of love and nostalgia. Terrance Davis uses only archive film in this voyage of memory of Liverpool, the city of his birth. It does feel, as it was intended, like a long newsreel people used to watch at the cinema before home televisions but with Davis own honest, wonderful and sometimes poisonous meditations. This isn't just an exercise in sentimentality though, nor is it an essay on why life was better back then. You can't love something without being fearlessly protective of it and Davis's film shows Liverpool's faults as well as its triumphs and isn't afraid to point out the sources. It's hypnotic, splendid and something to behold. If you don't know Terrance Davis, you don't know real England (or what is great about it anyway).
To say We're The Millers was better than I expected isn't much of compliment, seeing as I didn't expect much at all. It is better than your average comedy of this ilk, mainly due to one or two very funny scenes and also because it has a new set of actors rather than the usual actors you'd expect. Well done Will Poulter was my first thought after the film, Jennifer Aniston seems to have been unfairly cast for one obvious scene and for once I thought it was Ed Helms who stole the show, rather than spoil it. Hit and miss in equal measure.
This film started badly for me when I suggested watching it as a treat to my wife as she's a bit of a Ryan Gosling fan. Guys - always make sure it's a Ryan Gosling film and not a Ryan Reynolds film in these situations. I watched the whole film from the confines of the Dog house. Anyway, The Proposal was no worse and no better than I expected. It isn't very good. It has all the old cliches you'd expect but with added original horrors. However, I'm somewhat in awe of Sandra Bullock. I was annoyed that she was cheapened and convinced to strip down to gain ratings. I was then annoyed with myself for enjoying said scenes. What can I do? I'm only human! (reptile, same thing). I'm ashamed to say I'm rating this film on a short semi-naked scene involving Sandra Bullock, I promise this will never happen again. Please don't judge me.
One of the most successful fly on the wall documentaries of all time. Director Marc Singer takes us into another world, a dreamworld on screen but a nightmare reality for those involved. Singer captures the poverty, the ignorance and intelligence, the mindset of those above and those below the city. It's a shocking and somewhat sad example of human existence but it's also a satisfying achievement in understanding and social care.
