    Not even Last of The Mohicans?

    The Five Year Engagement

    Pretty decent for a rom-com with a fair few laughs and one or two unexpected turns. Jason Segel and Emily Blunt are both engaging leads, playing a couple struggling to make it to the alter.

    Would be fairly easy to recommend if it didn't contain two of my movie pet hates. Firstly casting American actors to play British characters who then churn out that completely vanilla english accent that doesn't actually seem to be from any recognisable part of the British Isles.

    Secondly it ends with a musical number. It was bad enough in Bridesmaids, but this is worse.

    If none of the above bother you, it's an easy 70%. If they do, it's 50%.

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

    @Blakester - Emily Blunt is British. Sure you knew that already.

    Watch Last of The Mohicans.

    If you don't like that I'm pretty sure you have no soul. Like a ginger person.

    To be fair, that isnt *quite* as stupid as it sounds. Something happens to british womens accents in american media.

    I spent ages thinking the ginger bird from lost was australian despite it explicitly saying she was from england and the actress coming from cambridge.

    Yep, I wasn't actually referring to Emily Blunt (although she does has an annoying accent), it was Alison Brie.

    @Gansosleftpeg May I ask which actors you like or find to be alright? Just curious.

    I wouldn't say DDL is boring, but he's one of those actors that straddles the fine line between having a huge presence and being incredibly watchable, and massively overacting and shattering any sense of disbelief.
  • Deleted user 8 January 2013 10:17:49
    DDL was amazing in Gangs of New York imo.

    Gangs of New York being a prime example. He chews through the scenery like a beaver in that.

    I think it comes down to personal taste really with these types. I prefer an understated performance to "big acting" like DDL and Pacino do, but then you get people who describe the likes of Ryan Gosling as wooden or lifeless.

    Daniel Day Lewis is going to be awesome when he's properly old and given the Dumbledore / Marcus Aurelius roles.

    He's pretty awesome now to be honest. Although one side effect of his bombast and presence is he does show up weaker performances, look at Di Caprio in GoNY.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    The Vow

    Rachael McAdams in her pants, car crash, doesn't remember husband, father is that guy from Jurassic Park, mother from American Horror Story, Rachael in her pants again, still doesn't remember, relive first date, awww. In her pants again but wet....she went swimming in the river. Come to think of it, she does like to walk about in films with just pants on, does look good to be fair.

    pants/10

    I can think of another recent film, but to mention its name would be a spoiler :)

    I might do but I probably wont like it because he is in it.
    Still my favourite film ever, worth watching for the scenery and soundtrack alone. At least give it a try!

    I'm rather partial to Rachel McAdams. Hopefully someone will put together a video cut of her pants scenes on youtube so that I can skim the movie and yet still resonate with it's essential essence.

    Like I was able to with the Natalie Portman scene from that terrible medieval 'comedy' recently.

    Everybody should just calm down a little bit and have a nice cup of tea.

    I've just realised that Rachel McAdams and Elizabeth Banks are not the same person. Weird.

    I can't believe they're not the same person. They're identical.

    Really? Rachel McAdams has been brunette in most of the things I've seen her in. And she has a much bigger forehead. They are both a delight though.

    I just assumed some sort of unheard of hair colour changing technology - a "dye" as it were - must have been used.
