French Canadian/Arab film about a woman with a past her kids know nothing about. Upon her death she leaves her children with a task that fulfils a promise she made many years ago in a war torn, middle eastern country. This is the third time I've seen the film and watching it with friends is half the joy when they work out what’s happening and how it all fits. This is one of my favourite films and one I've posted here before.
What sets this film apart is the way it tells a story in parallel with 2 characters. The performances from the main cast are first class but even the minor parts played by local people with no acting experience make this film so realistic. The director hounded Radiohead into allowing him to use their music and this was agreed after the band has seen the film.
The film is very poignant right now when you look at what’s going on in Syria and how pointless it all is. This film is a masterpiece and I recommend it.
George Carlin- You Are All Diseased: 9/10
i forget a thought while im in the middle of it
Hunger games - 7/10
It didn't make me care about any of the characters and the only emotional involvement i had was just imagining how terrible the situation these people find themselves in would be. I heard today that in the books the main chick goes back in to the games another two times which just sounds ridiculous :3
Third viewing of 2001: A Space Odyssey: 10/10
Still my favorite movie, tied with Citizen Kane. Incredible, amazing, the best film ever made.
Indie Game: The Movie: 8/10
It was rather good for a documentary and it was about the people as much as the games, which was nice.
the cabin in the woods finally came out here so i watched it
8.5/10. loved every minute of it. it's great to finally see a horror that makes me proud to be a fan of the genre
check out my review on my blog its lonely
Is The Cabin in the Woods meant to be a horror-comedy or is it just a regular horror film?
it's a little bit of both, but it's very satisfying.
That sounds pretty good, will definitely try to watch it at a cinema.
lol... Gandhi saying "Bum Flufferies" is not what I expected at all.
Seriously, Ben Kingsley is radically awesome in this, the number of times he says fuck or cunt is also astonishing.
In a way I'll call it a heist movie, but it really only is about ONE thing and that's convincing lard arse Ray Winstone to get off his fat arse and do some work.
For some reason I keep thinking it's the British goodfellas, but it's way too short to be called that. I'll just have to call it "Gandhi Goes Mad with a cockney accent".
Seeing it was probably the most fun ive ever had watching a film at the cinema. It was amazing and basically a satire of the entire horror genre but still a legitimately good horror
What ever you expect it to be, it isnt lol
Easily the best horror-comedy since evil dead II since most films fall short in one or the other but this does both really well. Lots of evil dead 1 and 2 references as well which was v cool :~)
the usual suspects 9/10
I remember watching a decade ago.
God it was good
The Illusionist 9/10 - Very well written. Worth a watch.
the whole ride to the cabin and the cabin itself are obvious evil dead references, the cellar and cellar door, the shots when the zombies come out=basically exactly the same shots as evil dead, dairy/necronomicon, zombie body parts all like squiggling about when it gets cut up and I think the hand at the end of the film is a tribute to the poster
also they cant leave because of forces unknown- forcefield in cabin in the woods, mysteriously destroyed bridge in evil dead 1 and 2
went to see it with my friend who is also a big evil dead fanboy so we kind of just tallied up all the references there was so many lmao
We were in shock when we saw that. Ian Mcshane was menacing. Great watch for anyone who likes gangstar films from Snatch to Casino, difference being this had some genuinely tender moments.
very interesting. it's no masterpiece, but it has a tense atmosphere, great visuals and some very interesting concepts, such as the cyborg, the "engineers" and pretty much everything that was inside the alien planet
the cast isn't great (guy pearce as that old man? seriously?), even though fassbender was pretty good, but the characters are well written.
an overall enjoyable film. saying "it has nothing special" would probably give a bad impression, but I feel that saying "don't expect too much" does it.
Watched 3:10 to Yuma on netflix, really liked it.
Christian Bale is quite good in it, as is Russel crowe. Pretty nice Western story, I enjoyed it anyway.
Blade Runner (Final cut) for like the 22th time or so.
10/10. A true masterpiece of science-fiction.
Sunshine - 7/10
Quite a nice movie. The concept is awesome albeit a tad far fetched. The characters are cool and the dilemma's are handled realistically.
Two-Headed Shark Attack - 4/10
Saw it last night, right before I went to bed, I decided to ponder over it that night and in the morning.
The plot was pretty terrible and made no sense, half of the film relied on the fact that there was two topless chicks in it and the rest in bikinis, and the effects were terrible. At one point the shark had its head out of water and it looked like it was made of foam rubber or some bullshit. I gave it a four because some parts you could laugh at, the scenes where people were eaten were entertaining and funny and the women weren't half bad to look at.
Not sure if this belongs here, but whatever. Has anyone seen Rushmore? Thinking about watching it.
Great movie, not enough answers.
The Panic In Needle Park: 8.5/10
Not just because I love Al Pacino, or that it's a well put together movie, but I love cinema that isn't afraid to show the dirty underbelly of society as it really is
a love story for the ages
