Well, that probably goes down as the single dumbest film I've ever seen :lol: Think I actually supported the nazis, at least they had some decent people :lol:

:lol: The snobs on this goddamn board.
I didn't say that I didn't like it (I'm not sure what to make of it). You can't deny that it's ridiculously f***ing stupid though, however much you may have enjoyed it.

Watching Stolen on BBC1. Normally a film based on a true story grips me pretty easily but just can't get into it.

This lead woman is so f***ing wooden it's unreal. I'm waiting for her to be part of the kidnap plot, not a single bit of warmth towards her.

Genuinely more sad at that poor gorgeous dog that just got beaten to death than the kid who got kidnapped. :(

The Avengers - First time since the cinema and it's still class, so many punch the air moments.

Open Range - Decent enough western, bit slow at times, but more heart warming than all out action. 6/10.

Dead Man Walking - Was expecting a sort of film like 'The Life of David Gale' however that expectation proved to be incorrect. No twist or turns, just more of a thought provoking film. 6/10

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid - Loved this, great connection between the two main leads. Recommend this to anyone, sure to love it. 8/10.

Pursuit of Happiness - Seen this before a few years ago. Didn't like it as much 2nd time around but still a very nice heart felt movie between father and son. 7/10.

Lawless - Rated it tbh, Tom Hardy was excellent, still not sure about Shia though.. just something.. I duno not quite there to make him a top actor for me. Very decent film though, 8/10 for me.

I wasnt a fan tbh. Read a review that said something like 'the best looking bad movie of the year' which was pretty much it for me :lol:

Looking forward to seeing Lawless though

Grizzly Man



2005 documentary film by Werner Herzog about bear enthusiast Timothy Treadwell who spent 13 summers in Alaska living with wild bears. Unfortunately for him his 13th summer with the bears was to be his last as him and his girlfriend were both mauled and killed by a bear as they were almost to return home for the winter.

The film is a mixture of edits from Treadwell's own movie footage he recorded in the wilderness and Herzog interview people that knew or were close to Treadwell.

I'd recommend this to anybody as it shows the inner struggles of one man who believes he was at one with bears, and more than likely wished to be a bear.

At times I felt Herzog's image of Treadwell was a bit unfair, as it made him seem slightly insane at times and how he was disturbing the unwritten rule between man and bear when clearly all Treadwell wanted to do was to protect the species and to try and break down some boundaries.

There's also a rather disturbing bit where Herzog manages to listen to a recording of Treadwell's death as his camera was left on at the time. You can clearly see how shaken up he was by this and it certainly moves you.
"Elsewhere, at worst, modern commercial football could be seen as the mall rather than the circus; insidiously bland, decaffeinated and pre-packed, its relentless formulaic repetition an instrument for disabling consciousness rather than manipulating it."

Safe House. A fairly typical, by-the-numbers, Bourne-ological action thriller. Save for an exciting car chase near the beginning and one really tense combat scene near the end, the narrative was painfully predictable, supplemented by largely unspectacular action sequences. However, Denzel and Reynolds' acting performances managed to keep me interested throughout.

On the whole, i thought it was predictable and unremarkable.   

Spoiler
I thought the best scene was right at the end in the Deputy Director's office, ending in the "i'll take it from here" comment. Thought that tied the story up nicely. Also, Denzel's a great die-er.

King of New York. A good watch imo, thought the cast was sublime (Walken, Caruso and Fishbourne standing out for me), typical plot of cops vs bad guys, with you ending up liking the bad guys more imo. 7.5/10
