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!!!!!!!
I seem to have watched Ben Wheatley's films the wrong way round. Now I've seen all but one, I'm starting to think the man is a genre unto himself. Much like his other work, Down Terrace is eerie, dark, clever and funny. Other directors have managed similar feats but there is something individually sinister and funny about Wheatley's work that really makes it stand out among the rest. I dare say it's love or hate stuff but I for one can't wait to see what he does next! It's nice to see a Father and Son team up that isn't the Smiths (Will and Jaden). It's nice to see natural performances too, everyone does a great job without trying too hard or not trying hard enough. I always thought there was something wrong with Jay's Dad.
Bill Forsyth's Gregory's Girl is a bit of a cult film now in the UK. I was going to say it is thoroughly British, it's not, it's thoroughly Scottish but the 1980's, comprehensive school and life in general was like that. It really takes me back. It is a certain quirkiness that may not travel well, I'm not sure why not though, I do believe the British are the easiest of audiences or at least the least lazy. If it's good, we'll have some of it. Back to the film, the performances are great, John Gordon Sinclair steals the show by a mile but the supporting cast, specifically his mates, are also rather brilliant. Compare it to an American 'gross-out' teen comedy of today, you can't really can you. Of it's time and well worth a visit now and again. Without trying to sound rude or pompous, I honestly do pity those who don't (or don't want to) get it.
I really wasn't feeling it at first but it soon grew on me and by the end I could say that I enjoyed it. I would say the same of Woody Harrelson's performance too, the film and his performance are much the same thing, like his performance, like the film and vice versa. The supporting cast is impressive although no one really has much to do apart from a two minute scene each, although they all do very well at what they do have. It's not your average murder mystery which helps keep one entertained but it does seem to lack that certain something that would make it special. I think it could have been something special but it's worth a watch as it is.
An exciting, action-packed and intelligent change of pace for director Joe Wright. None of the action is needless or mindless, the whole production feels very real and never does it feel in the least bit predictable. I thought the cast and their performances were really good too, what's not to like about a Gay 1980's obsessed Tom Hollander with his two neo-Nazi henchmen? Saoirse Ronan is living up to the hype surrounding her.
In the year 2000 a horrible little British tabloid called The News of the World released a list (with pictures) of convicted paedophiles who had failed to sign on the sex offenders register. It is fair to say many of the accompanying photos were not of the greatest quality and lots of innocent people who looked vaguely like them got attacked in the streets. A Doctor who lived locally to me had a brick thrown through the window of his surgery because it had the word Pediatrician on the entrance. People are ignorant. The not so famous as they should be hip-hop duo Dan le Sac vs. Scroobius Pip (check them out) wrote a song called 'Thou shall always kill' that includes the great line "Thou shalt not think any male over the age of 30 that plays with a child that is not their own is a paedophile. Some people are just nice." I agree wholeheartedly. Although I generally don't play with kids that don't belong to me unless I know them, but you catch my drift. Thomas Vinterberg's The Hunt is a frustratingly real film about peoples ignorance, knee-jerk reactions and dangerous gossip. It's frightening to think that this kind of thing happens all the time. It is played out perfectly, well handled and tasteful. Thomas Vinterberg doesn't make many films but when he does they pull no punches. Maybe now Mads Mikkelsen will also get the credit that is well over due. One of the best films of 2013 in my opinion.
