    Melancholia

    Excellent, thoroughly enjoyed it. Reminded me of Festen in some ways. It's looks fantastic, the performances are great and the soundtrack works very well with the visuals.

    Close Encounters of the Third Kind

    A man leaves his crazy wife and kids ("CRYBABY!" *slams door* "CRYBABY" *slams door*) for the cold reptilian embrace of some hydrogen-based lifeforms.

    The film is full of comedy to the point where I don't know what Spielberg's intentions were. It's a bit like Kubrick's 2001, in that it deals with mankind's cosmic Awakening, but that's where the similarities end so I don't know where I was going with that comparison.

    Anyway it's quite weird and disjointed, but it's funny and charming. Just don't watch the shitty 'special edition' where the aliens' faces are revealed. I remember seeing the "less is more" version 10 years ago and it was much more mysterious and less silly

    .
    Feels wrong to put a number on a piece of landmark cinema, but

    King of Devil's Island

    A Norwegian film about a borstal in the early 20th century. A moving tale that is well told.

    8/10

    The Devils Double (2011) 9/10

    Thereís no denying the cover is eye catching, especially the 3D effect version: A golden guy, sitting in a golden chair, holding two golden machine guns. Excessive. Based On A True Story, which makes it somewhat nuts (having watched the film). For those that donít know, the story is about Saddam Husseinís eldest son Uday, and Udayís body double Latif. Uday is nothing more than a gangster who gets everything and anything he wants - drugs, booze, girls (against their will) and control.

    The one thing that impressed me most about the film was lead actor (Dominic Cooper) who plays both the part of Uday and Latif. He does a great job. Some compare The Devils Double to Scarface. I donít quite see why. Scarface is the better film. Due to the behaviour of Uday, who comes across like a crazed Freddie Mercury, the story borders on semi serious to black humour. One minute a shocking event unfolds, only for Uday not to give a sh-t, thatís how fu-ked up he is.

    Funnily enough I saw this last night with a few mates and we all hated it. Pretentious, slow, stupid, and painfully dull but with some nice cinematography and, granted, some decent performances.

    The soundtrack was almost identical to Antichrist's.

    Also, Dunst's dumplings!

    I don't understand this at all. The best Bond in years was and is Casino Royale. Skyfall was good, but not a patch on the first DC one for me at least ;)

    Looking forward to the next one mind you.

    Die Another Day - bad
    Casino Royale - good
    Quantum - bad
    Skyfall - good

    Resident Evil: Random Word. Whatever the newest one is. I refuse to give it a score, as assigning it a zero feels like being overly generous. It's literally the worst film I think I've ever seen in my life. Actions scenes consist of people basically standing there firing guns into other people standing there firing guns until all the generic cannonfodder fall over and the end-level bosses have pointless fights that make no sense. At one point Milla Jovovich's heart stops. Like literally stops, you see it in x-ray and everything, along with her entire chestbone fracturing, in a CGI sequence that manages to be worse than the exact same gimmick from Romeo Must Die, a twelve-year old, comparatively low budget film. But she still manages to carry on shooting at static targets and fighting pointlessly for several more minutes and then just wakes up afterwards as if nothing happened. I'm not sure there was an actual story behind the movie overall, because things just happen for the sake of things happening, but if there was it was written by a small child interpreting a shit action film they didn't really watch properly. And they're interpreting it in crayon. Brown crayon.

    And Milla Jovovich has the voice of a 70 year old grandmother.

    And yet, in spite of all this, I hear that not one, but two further sequels are in production, with a reboot happening after those.

    Raid: Redemption - 8/10

    The most violent film I've ever watched, but in a good way. I don't mean violent as in finding the most disgusting way to kung fu chop someone's face off, but violent, as in I could feel every blow, punch and stab connecting. Absolutely brutal, and it's combined with some of the best fight choreography I've seen on film. Immensely entertaining. Story was meh, but you're not watching it to be told a good story.

    I will say, though, my friend popped in the DVD with the American voice actors dubbed in, and it was probably some of the worst dubbing I've heard. Just laughable. If I watched the original version with subtitles, I'm sure the score would have been a little higher.

    @meme REboot?
    It's a long time since I saw the first RE film but it was rather OK wasn't it?

    adds to list of things to see

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    The 1st RE film was middling rubbish, and subsequent sequels have increasingly failed to live up to that standard. I stopped watching them after the 3rd, I think, and have no idea how many there are now. Not even sure if I made it all the way through the 3rd. Which one is she riding an BMW motorbike through the desert in?

    A reboot might be interesting. Probably shit though.

    Punch Drunk Love

    Another film that is always being mentioned on Kermode and Mayo. I almost turned this off near the beginning, the style was a bit jarring to say the least. There was this ridiculous scene with glass toilet plungers that was just so irritating. Quite glad I stayed with it though. Emily Watson is always worth watching. It did improve as it went on as well.

    Ted

    Not quite what I was expecting i.e. far less puerile, but nevertheless quite silly obviously. Dunno. I enjoyed it I guess. It was a bit different. Could have been a lot funnier. Kunis is just outrageously gorgeous. Probably Marky Mark's finest acting role. Enjoyed the film references. And yet all a bit predictable and pointless. But then what did I expect?

    6/10

    The Amazing Spider-Man

    The whole "too soon" thing aside (which it absolutely definitely unquestionably is), I thought this was pretty good. I quite liked that this was a film about Peter Parker as opposed to Spider-Man and Garfield is really equivalent - a huge cut above McGuire. Really enjoyed his performance and it really shows how you don't have to be a boring blank slate in these things (I'm looking at you Christian Bale). Stone is also super lovely.

    On the flip side, the Spider-Man bits were pretty shite, and perversely there wasn't enough of them. The film went on too long and the Lizard was a bad call - I get why they did it, but it was far too generic a baddie and very Godzilla, in a bad way.

    I think it's probably a better film than the Raimi original, but a far worse hero film than the second Raimi one. Not really sure where they'll go with the second one, as they've created a slightly weird scenario by having a superhero movie where the superhero bits are the worst parts. Don't think that's ever been done before.

    i actually enjoyed Quantum..... i think me and al murray must be the only two people in the world but i did. I just like the stripped back nature of the film.

    Quantum is bad compared to Casino Royale, but it's Citizen Kane compared to Die Another Day.

    Not sure what you mean by "stripped back". That's a better description of Casino Royale for me, I thought the whole problem with QoS is that's it's over-complicated.

    The problem is that it doesnt really go anywhere and nothing is really resolved.

    He comes across a quantumn upper management guy, chases him about and makes him drink oil, with a vague back plot of buying water.

    At the end, nothing is really resolved as he has just killed one guy who nobody really gives a shit about.

    Yeah, it's a mess plot-wise, plus the director was a bit Michael Bay-ish. Generally left with a sense of not knowing what the fuck was going on at any point, nor caring.

    Still though, it's ok. It looks nice and Craig is still awesome. Again, totally shits all over the properly bad Bond films.

    Apart from having them categorised according to who was playing bond in it, Bond films blur in to one (or, well, erm, 5) for me. I really can't tell them apart. Actually remember the plot to any of them? Not a chance. This despite having seen many of them multiple times. I'm amazed when people can have conversations about individual Bond films.

    I remember them more for their settings than the plot. The plot is always a stupid MacGuffin and irrelevant, but I think of them as the Russian one, the space one, the blaxploitation one, the utterly retarded one where he surfs on a tsunami etc.

    Baddies stand out as well, at least with the older ones.
