I once started a journal of that kind, that recorded the weather and what I did that day, including dental work, the flu, what I had for lunch, etc. I only lasted a few days. But it didn't have ratings, so there you go.
Now, if you had all your ratings on the Flixter thingy in Facebook, it would include everything I've seen *since* the winter. Not that it's much, mind ... there's no Flixter rating option for every night's episode of Jon Stewart
It would be fun to describe this as the best Jim Thompson adaptation set in French West Africa, but it's true to Pop 1280 (inexplicably reduced to 1275 here) in its fashion. Quite sleazy, with Noiret at his best, and notable performances by Stephane Audran as the flagrantly unfaithful wife, and Isabelle Huppert as a trivially disposable mistress. All very nasty, a bit depressing, and very good.
Just because it's stupid does not mean it is not entertaining. I think it happened like this: In 1980, John Carpenter bought the rights to some unused Monty Python skits, only he took them seriously and worked them into a film treatment, which was rejected by every third-rate producer in town. Some years later, a video game company picked up the rights, but couldn't get it to work, so they sold it to Neil Marshall, who made this movie. Marshall made sure that the editor made cuts every half second throughout the movie.
Oh, yeah. It's about the end of the world, sort of, but not really.
Admirers of "Descent" (of which I am one) may or may not like this. Wait for the comic-book adaptation.
