    Making good films, I think.

    Another Earth - 5/10 - Not sure it really worked for me. It seemed to be going somewhere but never got there.

    I read that he can do that trick where you pick a card and put it in the pack and he'll find it, so there you go - two tricks at least.

    What one trick is that?
    The scene where one party knows what the other party is up to but toys with them like a cat with a mouse. Waltz is brilliant as the cat.

    I love it. But like cheese there is only so much you can have.

    I recommend the recent film they've made of Midnight's Children. I reckon you'd really enjoy it.
    Why would you think I would enjoy that?

    @Tonka

    I'm not sure to be honest, just something more exciting than a big explosion and the 1 in 10,000 speech. Something completely out of left field like the end of Basterds. With the dancing horse, keep that.

    After such a confrontational (in a good way) movie, it just felt anticlimactic. 5 mins after the bloodbath rather than 20 would have been perfect imo.

    @Garlvinlandblueblood I liked the trick he pulled with the wanted poster. And for that to work the rest had to be there. I agree that its a bit like the double trip to Treasure Island in PotC part 1. (except PotC really sank because of it). He needs to go back and free her AGAIN!?

    QT really painted himself into a corner. Either he could do the dinner scene scam or a clever trick to fool some slavers. Not both. And then he did both.

    Dredd

    Enjoyed this at the cinema, and even moreso at home. Quite enjoyed pausing and reading the graffiti and seeing all the easter eggs I missed the first time around. Clearly a labour of love.

    10/10

    @LeoliansBro The most solid of the Primer explanations.

    Having watched this last night, I just can't see how it is a 10/10 film. Heck I'd struggle to give it more than 7.

    Aside from one or two neat visual flourishes, there's absolutely nothing there that hasn't be done before (and in many cases better). Not helped by the fact that The Raid is virtually the same set-up but infinitely more exciting and tense. It's also another film that uses the cut-price Anne Hathaway, who then goes on to deliver a budget performance.

    I have to wonder if all the positive reaction is actually just relief that someone managed not to fuck up a Dredd film.

    Go (1999)

    Has a cool, if not unique, premise and is generally speaking satisfying. A lot of the plot in the second act seems superfluous however, and not all of it ties in neatly with the finale. Timothy Olyphant has a strong presence in the film; perhaps not the most versatile of actors, but definitely under rated. Worth Watching.

    3*

    Give it 2 bonus points as I am a Dredd comics fan if you like. My freind rated it 8/10 having a passing acquaintance only with 2000AD.

    I've been lurking in here for a while and picked up some good recommendations, so here goes...

    Life of Pi

    Enjoyable, visually very impressive and somewhat thought provoking. Couldn't help but think that it wasn't quite as clever as it thought it was but that's probably the source material's fault.

    8/10

    The Matrix
    A true classic. Hasn't aged one bit. This will be around long after people have forgottenabout Lincoln or Life of Pi.

    It took me back to 1999 when I forst saw it and how completely revolutionary it was. So many things it did for the first time in a western mainstream film.

    I tried to think of a film that has done something similar since and couldn't come up with one. It's also funny to see how Inception riffs on the Matrix but is a much worse film because of no originality.

    Everything (including Keanu) is top notch

    A must see
    Rally? I mean, I love the film, but I do find it extremely dated. Not in terms of the effects or action or anything, I agree those are still top notch. But the trenchcoats, shades, techno, giant boots, leather and rubber outfits, and the whole 'hacker' thing all feel really millenial to me.

    Still great though. And even leaving bullet time aside, its very influential. I think every film since with a hint of alternate reality about it has been called 'the new matrix'
  • Deleted user 21 January 2013 14:53:55
    Matrix has entered that awkward phase of being a bit dated looking without quite looking classic yet, but it'll get there. I remember when Bladerunner and Terminator both looked horrible.
  • Deleted user 21 January 2013 14:59:37
    It looked very 80s in a bad way at one point.

    How do people feel about stuff like Crouching Tiger now that some time has passed?
    Because when I saw that, all could think the whole way through was 'This wirework is fucking terrible, why is everyone raving about it?'

    I mean, the whole art of wirework is not to look like wirework, I would have thought and Crouching Tiger failed HARD at that.

    It's a wuxia movie. People are supposed to fly around.

    I can stand lack of realism - watched Hellboy 2 last night and there was a lot of unrealistic wire action in that - but it still looked good. It didn't have the amateur production of Peter Pan type wirework that Crouching Tiger suffers from.
