    No idea, but it's not particularly popular in Australia. I'm surprised it hasn't been cancelled. Maybe overseas viewers keep it afloat, sort of like the TV form of Fosters.

    Home & Away is still doing fine though.

    Europa Europa

    A German Jewish boy has the good fortune to look like a handsome 'pure-bred' German Aryan. He also speaks fluent Russian and German.
    When the holocaust starts, he flees. Hijinks ensue, and he ends up joining the Hitler Youth.

    (Based on the true exploits of Solomon Perel.)
    The film veers from tense to hilarious to inexplicably weird.

    Unlike the Pianist or Schindler's List, this film doesn't focus on The Horror. Instead, it uses levity to expose the absurdity of its subject matter. I liek dis.

    7/10

    The Hot Potato

    Ray Winstone caper set in the late 60's.

    Inoffensive enough and not too long, but essentially a pile of sh*te. Also stars Jack Huston from Boardwalk Empire fame.

    Lawless

    The first 30 minutes or so are so by-the-numbers I thought we were going right into gangster cliche territory. Whilst it never strays completely from this, the last half of the movie is much stronger. I like how it concentrates on just one fued really, instead of the whole 'bootlegger/gangster lifestyle'. Some enjoyable performances, but still felt pretty lightweight by the end.

    6/10

    'Starring Rhianna' is a bit generous. She gets as many line as arnie in the original terminator, all of them along the lines of 'HELL YEAH' and 'HOO-RAH'.

    I kind of wish I hadn't watched this because it is such an unsettling film with an unnecessarily ambiguous ending ... I like them when they are cleverly well thought out however, in this film, it was so poorly done and left just about everything to your own imagination; no closure at all is a big poo-bum of mine.

    ... lovely pair though.

    For me it worked in the film because of the confusion of the main character.
    i guess the closure was that no matter what, she was still going to be taken to the mental hospital- i guess you can see john hawkes apperance at the end as a haunting You not sure if it is him through her imagination, or just a normal man when they almost hit 'him', i don't think you see his face. Either way she is traumatised. The film throws up enough to give him reasons to get her - he is the leader of a cult and she was his favourite, so there is that relationship, he is unhinged, and effectively he drugged and raped people, and murdered a man in front of her.

    But yeah i have watched too many films with ambigious endings of late. They can be really useful to a film or really shit. I'm fine with them if the film promotes a discussion of something vs something that leads up to the ambigious ending - which mmmm did, perception of reality, if it isn't that its normally annoying.

    But yeah.. really nice pair!

    Martha Marcy May Marlene isn't a thriller or a conventional drama. It's about mood, atmosphere and thought. I thought it was superbly constructed in the way it drip fed information and constantly ramped up the tension. I agree that the ending is jarring, but the ambiguity works IMO.

    I thought it was great, and one of the most unsettling films I've seen in ages.

    From Russia with love

    Part 2 of the 'Blu-Ray Bond-a-thon' took place last night.

    Takes the formula from Dr. No and expands on it nicely - i actually found it quite amusing that, in both movies, the opening is almost identical :

    - Bond walks in to Moneypennys office and throws his hat onto the stand
    - He gets his mission from M
    - Q walks in and gives Bond something
    - Bond leaves M's office and goes back out to flirt with Moneypenny
    - Cut to Bond landing at an airport and getting in a car
    - Bond is tailed by someone

    Brilliant!, anyway, onto the film.

    Connery brings his 'A game' again, seducing a beautiful woman one minute then double-chopping a guy in the neck the next minute. He really embodies the character and is a joy to watch.

    Supporting characters are stronger this time around. Daniela Bianchi was an absolute stunner, Pedro Armendáriz as Kerim Bey was great and Robert Shaw as Grant was the original henchman and was very menacing.

    Same as Dr. No, visually, the movie is spectacular. The Blu Ray transfer is excellent and really brings the movie to life.

    Overall, it is a better movie than Dr. No, with a stronger script and a better story.

    8/10



    Very much looking forward to next Wednesday and Goldfinger.

    Maybe it was just me, but when the film ended, I sighed a humongous sigh of relief in the respect of, 'gosh ... glad that is over with'.

    Just sssoooooo unsettling.

    Nice to have a thoughtful discussion, even though I wasn't too fond of the film!

    I personally saw it as a horror film of sorts and therefore the unsettling and ambiguous ending really added to it.

    Similar in a way to Never Let Me Go which was also a drama masquerading as an unsettling horror.

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

    Les Blessures Assassines (Murderous Maids)

    Incestuous lesbian maids murdering and mutilating their employer is a gruesomely fascinating premise. So after watching Sister My Sister the other day, I decided to dig a bit deeper and found this French version telling the same story. For one, it's a lot more graphic but sadly most of the film is poorly acted. I still enjoyed it but prefer the 1994 version.

    7.5/10

    Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters - 6/10

    Not as bad as critics have made out. Non-stop action from start to finish with some cheesy one-liners. One of those films you enjoy while it lasts, but it won't be winning any awards.

    I Give It A Year - 8/10

    Very funny, particularly Stephen Merchant's character. If you haven't seen it his best man's speech at the start is fantastic. Also look out for a scene where the couple's honeymmon pictures are shown to her parents.

    It's getting a bit silly now.

    Cosmopolis (2012) 8/10

    ‘Riding across Manhattan in a stretch limo in order to get a haircut, a 28-year-old billionaire asset manager's day devolves into an odyssey with a cast of characters that start to tear his world apart.’ - IMDb

    Been wanting to check this out for a while, but the DVD / Blu-ray appears to have held its price high since release. Finally got a copy off ebay for £3 - Yay!

    Having read reviews, people seem divided into two camps, they either love it or dislike it.

    The film has a certain unique super clean style to it. About 80% of the film takes place inside a white limousine. The interior is so surreal clean, it almost feels as if the limo isn’t moving.

    The film is slow, it is dull at times. Maybe this is intentional, to reflect the world of billionaire asset manager. It is different, and that felt fresh. I liked it for these reasons.

    I managed an hour and that was it. Turned it off. Its quite hard work which would be fine if it was a bit more than about a rich guy in a limo and events were a sharper descent. As it is its just meh
