    Weird, I started this on Sunday and finished it last night. I agree it's very, very good.

    I'm still not getting why Ada insists on wearing that cocktail dress. Was this ever explained, in a game, interview, or wherever?

    Your score is spot-on.
    Yep - I've seen all of them. Not because I'm particularly "into" RE, but because I like that kind of movie and the first wasn't SO bad. This was the first I couldn't sit through.

    They're making another, which actually doesn't look completely horrible! It probably is, though.

    Looper 7/10

    Thought the first hour was really entertaining but then it took a wrong turn and kept going until a very unsatisfying ending.
    Oh well

    Pulse (Kairo)

    Disguises itself as a badly acted apocalyptic horror film. Really it's a commentary on isolation, disconnection (from the past, others & yourself) and loneliness in Japan.
    It's by no means subtle - the 'point' is practically shoved down your throat - but it clicked with me. The weirdness and the cinematography increase the impact tenfold.
    It won't scare you, but it will get under your skin. It did for me anyway.

    6/10

    I would have preferred it if Kurosawa had shortened the film and let the images speak for themselves. I was slightly bored by Kairo, but the film has stayed with me regardless, so while it staggers along like a drunk slag in 6 inch heels, it does have legs. Hence the score I gave it.

    Let The Right One In - Copious amounts of points/10

    One of the best things I've seen in ages. Recorded it a while ago when Film 4 were having a vampire season, but only just got round to watching it.

    The two leads were superb, supporting cast was great, minimal special effects were subtle and effective, and special mention has to go to the composer who did a great job with the score.

    I've no idea what the English language remake is like, and I probably won't bother finding out, as I have no problem with subtitles. I suspect after that, it's likely to be a disappointment.

    If you haven't seen it (the Swedish original), I recommend it most highly.
    Ditto to all of that, and put some more on top too. Truly one of hte best films I have ever seen. I saw it several months ago,then felt compelled to buy it and have watched it twice more since. I think this is the only film that I might end up watching as many times as GoodFellas. Beautiful, heart warming and chilling (simultaneously) with such a wonderful story. Tempted to watch it again tonight now but I have already decided on 'The Green Mile'.(Condor Man hasn't turned up yet).
    @Guts.

    Lots of complaints on Amazon as to the quality of the DVD subtitles. Something about having to redo them due to a copyright issue. I'm assuming that what I recorded was the theatrical release.
    Any views on the DVD version?

    Jeff, Who Lives At Home

    One of those indie films that meanders along with not much happening, but the characters are interesting so you stick with it and end up enjoying it. It's the story of a 30's something stoner who ventures out of his parent's basement in search of destiny and wood glue!

    Ed Helms is good, Jason Segel doesn't have to stretch too much as the stoner and Susan Sarandon steals the show.

    Worth a watch if you're at a loose end.

    When you can't see the angles on the wall you're in trouble.

    The remake isn't a bad film in itself. but it is (as most American remakes are) a homogenized version that misses the point just enough to make it utterly pointless.

    The whole thing about Let the Right One In is that it's not really a "vampire film" in the traditional sense, whereas Let Me In basically is. They made it into a "horror" film as opposed to a moving and interesting story about childhood with a bit of a twist.

    Yes, it's still an ok film largely because the source material is strong and they borrowed most of the good bits from the original, but it's also worthless.

    It has its moments. There are one or two things it does better than the original film.

    Also, by toning down a lot of the elements that were already toned down from the book, it kind of sets up different relationships between the main characters, like Hakan being a massive pedo.

    Win/Win: 85%

    Really enjoyed this film. It's firmly placed in the "Schmaltzy American sports-related drama" Genre, but definitely worth a watch.

    Great performance from Paul Giamatti, but it's rare that he delivers a bad one.

    It's easy watching, with some genuinely funny and touching moments.

    Ah yes, that was the other thing. They removed all the ambiguity.

    That was one of the more clever parts of the original. It didn't want to go into too much detail of all the things that the book goes into, but didn't want to cut them out either, so instead just kind of hinted at them, which added a greater sense of mystery and depth. You felt there was more story but you didn't quite know what it was.

    And yes, obviously American films can't do that. Everything must be explained.

    Don't really understand all the hate around the film I thought it was an excellent piece of scifi, Michael Fassbender was great as usual too.

    Definitely, Maybe (2008): 9/10

    No no, not an Oasis documentary -- the rom-com starring Ryan Reynolds. It's charming, and does exactly what it sets out to do, which is to be all mushy and New York rom-commy. Loses a point for not having a topless Reynolds scene.

    Judge Dredd - Dunno/10

    I spent years hating this film. I decided to watch it again last night and...

    I though about what if you removed the Deuce Bigalow comic relief character and kept the same script (more of less - Helmet stays on!). Then put in the actors from Dredd 3D into it. Keep the darker tone (but the ultra-violence is optional) and what would you get?

    I think it would be a fucking fantastic film. The script is actually pretty damn good. Awesome in fact.

    The whole Rico plot/plan and how Dredd is sent to the Cursed earth is superb. The "I judged him!" part was superb. Even some of the one-liners are brilliant. The bit about Deuce Bigalow throwing himself out of the window. "It would have been suicide!". To which Dredd replies "But it would have been legal!"

    The whole film is so full of ham and OTT performances that it was laughable. Deuce Bigalow can fuck right off. Effects are pretty superb. The ABC warrior is terrifying and by far the best thing in the film. I also like the way they did the Lawgiver and Lawmaster. Obviously as this had come cash to splash the scope of the film is quite vast. Diane Lane looks stunning in this film too.

    If they kept the helmet on and removed Deuce Bigalow, I think it would have got a much warmer reception then it did.

    I never though I'd ever say this but I really enjoyed watching it, despite it's flaws. Fuck it. 7.5/10. I take it all back. Mostly.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Because not one character has a logical reason for there ridiculous actions.
    Which makes the whole film dumb and unbelievable.
    I have been a big movie buff for almost all of my 40 years and seen some crap
    in that time but I have to rate this movie as the very worst I have EVER had the misfortune to watch.
    Hope this explains all the hate this movie has received.

    Cabin in the Woods. 8/10

    Don't subscribe to the cult of Whedon, aside from Firefly I find his output to be shit. This bucked the trend for me by being actually quite entertaining. Sharp script and a few grisly barbs.

    The trailer still fucked them with far too many spoilers though.

    Next up: The Raid and The Dictator. The missus has something called Stage Beauty, so I'm quite glad I'm out tonight...

    Well, he could be serious, could just be hyperbole. This is the internet, after all, where movies are generally classified as "best thing/worst thing ever".

    For my part, I was disappointed with Prometheus, as were many others. But it is very, very far from the worst film I've ever seen.

    Drive - 7/10

    Decided to watch this after hearing endless good things about it from various sources.

    Some of the fuss is justified, and the opening sequence is a triumph. If you are sick of watching films where the characters make stupid, unrealistic decisions to favour the plot or to add tension & danger to proceedings, then this scene is for you. I just wish the rest of the film had more scenes executed with the same level of confidence, intelligence and mystery.

    One thing that really stuck out for me was how much the main characters in no way act remotely like any human beings I've ever met, presumably to create a 'less dialogue is more / cool as fuck' tone to the film, which does sort of succeed once you accept the fact the characters aren't based on human life forms.

    A slightly more inspirational plot with a less straight forward ending wouldn't have gone a miss either.

    That said, it isn't too long and has some great scenes and as I say, the first scene is great.

    If you were only looking at all the pictures, with the sound turned off, it'd still be pretty far from the worst film ever, surely?

    Yes, it's a deeply flawed film, pretty much everybody agrees with that point, however, it absolutely beautifully shot and the GGI is some of the best on film.

    If there's one thing Ridley Scott can do, it's make pretty movies.

    Well, it is pretty. It certainly works as a piece of spectacle. But pretty pictures can only take you so far. I had similar problems with Avatar.

    I see exactly where he's coming from.

    Films and storys explore themes and ideas. Then human reactions in exploring aspects of these themes and ideas are what adds tension to the film and creates a story arc, and hopefully the protagonist you've followed through the story comes out of the other end of the story arc having learned something, or simply just survived due to their inspirational actions.

    If character's decisions and actions are unrealistic it voids the entire point of the experience, as the character actions do in Prometheus. I learned nothing having seen the film and I was not richer for the experience, so the film failed on even the most basic storytelling level.

    Actually, I almost think I would've enjoyed it more without the sound! ;0)

    Agree it's far from the worst film ever (TWBB), but it is an incoherent mess in far too many ways.
