Are you saying all of Edgar Wright's films are style over substance? That's clearly rubbish. SOTD and Hot Fuzz are brilliantly written, and it's an added bonus that they're stylistically and technically a massive step up from your average comedy/drama.
I suppose it depends what you class as substance. Wright's films, to me, are generally visually good and amusing but that's it. They have no 'substance' as much as I like them.
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

I think that's harsh certainly in terms of the first two in the Cornetto trilogy. I've not seen Scott Pilgrim or Baby Driver mind, they both looked irritating as f*** from the trailers.
Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.
God man replacement's don't have to 100% of best to 100% of a replacement.
The are both white, both intellects, both middle class, both the typical 'people who would have thought could never do such a thing ', all traits of a Psychopath.

Again, it depends heavily on what you might consider substance. He's produced some funny, good looking s*** but I can't apply substance to it myself.

I thought it had some good moments at the time, but I'd be surprised if it's aged well.

I loved it as well. Canny surprised that it wasn't more popular.

I didn't like The World's End that much and I haven't seen Baby Driver, but I've really liked everything else he's done. Spaced is still the best thing he'll ever have an association with for me.

Yeah, in the same boat with his other films too. SOTD and Hot Fuzz were really entertaining, World's End wasn't great and don't really fancy Baby Driver.

Annihilation. 7. Good, slow burn with plenty of unnerving shots/sequences, some of the CG was poor however. Reminded me of The Last of Us and people are also comparing it to Under the Skin.

Watched this last night, absolutely loved it. Wouldn't agree that the CGI was poor, maybe the alligator wasn't the most convincing, but it's excusable for this type of budget. Most of the time, it looked bloody gorgeous IMO.

Sign me up too. Terrific movie.

Also, I'm happy to think that style can have substance in of itself.
Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.

Flight with Denzil, great film and one of my fave actors of all time. Watched Morgan Freeman in that teacher film, another top movie and one of my fave actors. Denzil is the man though.

Saw the trailer a couple days ago, plus you guys talking about it - looks really interesting. But I was in Waterstones today and spotted that it's actually a novel. Great read so far, will watch the movie after.

Bollocks, been looking forward to watching annihilation after seeing all the good reviews. Thought I would put it on tonight, managed the first 50 mins then nodded off. Don’t have a clue what the f*** is going on now. Gonna have to try this again.

Weird c***.

Even weirder, is the fact that Vikander is absolutely gorgeous and better looking than Jolie, IMO. The fact he is somehow comparing her to a 16 year old boy?! :lol:

Everyone knows that a woman’s empowerment is only possible if there are legions of sweaty nerds ready and willing to furiously masturbate to her image.

Better than putting Jolie? Steady on. And I love Vikander btw but prime Jolie was different planet stuff.

Nah. Not for me. Perhaps one for the unpopular opinion thread. But never got the fascination with her. Don’t even particularly find her attractive.

I bet she’ll be gutted if she reads this :lol:
