    The Saddest Music in the World (2003) 8.5/10

    Discovered this by chance. One of the quotes read:
    “Unforgettably warped and thoroughly wonderful!”

    I enjoyed it. It’s somewhat surreal with it’s 1933 picture quality, black and white, grainy - sometimes switching to colour. Minutes into the film I began to wonder if it was by the same director who created the excellent My Winnipeg (2007) and a quick search on IMDb revealed it was the same director, Guy Maddin.

    The Ten - Not 10/10. A 3/10

    What a very strange film this is. Ten separate stories with interlinking characters and introduced by the same dude. Based on the ten commandments it's just downright odd. Shit but watchable shit. Don't really know what's going to happen.

    A true oddity. One story has Winona Ryder falling for a Ventriloquist's dummy, an animated sequence about a white rhino, a story about a woman who has a passionate relationship with Jesus...

    It' on Netflix US.

    Bitten (or Vampire Apocalypse) - 2.5/10

    Jason Mewes stars as a paramedic who falls for a hot vampire chick. Predictable in every possible way.

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

    Forgotten how good this is. Been YEARS since i last saw this. Holds up very well, still very funny and cutting too. A couple things grate like some forced sterotypes, but at the same time, thats what people expect themselves to be so...

    10/10
    Yeah, it's a funny one. I find the character I struggle with most is Ricky. I can't decide whether we're supposed to think he's a deep and talented prodigy, or a pretentious little cunt. The "plastic bag" scene always throws me.

    But overall I really do like this film a lot. It's got a nice pace and tone to it, and Spacey is just perfect.
    Ha! The plastic bag scene had me reaching for the off button but I'm glad I stuck with it.

    Skyfall

    Hmmm. Yes, it's good. But that's about it. I can't really see why some critics were fawning over it quite like they were, and while it pummels Quantum of Shitness into the ground, Casino Royale is, for me, still the strongest 'Craig' Bond.

    Some of the CGI was bloody terrible as well - especially the bike scene on the rooftops and through the bazaar/shops. And the villain (forgotten his name already) when he takes his false teeth/plate out and puts it back in, and his face starts to "heal" before it's even gone back in properly.

    Good enough, nice mix of in-jokes and still like Craig as Bond. But didn't like it feeling like a Die Hard movie at times.

    7/10

    Argo

    I knew next to nothing about this as I was very young when this actually happened, and wasn't aware of the incident after Clinton released details, but I thought this was really rather excellent.

    Watched the extended version (which is only about nine minutes longer - I don't know what the extended scenes are but nothing felt out of place or drawn out, so I'm glad I watched that version) and thought it was superbly directed and some really decent performances.

    8/10

    King of New York

    It's always entertaining watching Walken in action. And a young Wesley Snipes as well.

    Funny enough i'm working my way through Dekalog: The Ten Commandments Parts 1 to 10. It's spread across 4 DVD's, and consists of 10 1hr films loosly based on the Ten Commandments. All 10 stories are set around the same Warsaw apartment block.

    3 down 7 to go. 1 was good, 2 was ok and 3 was the weakest.

    Rust and Bone

    A rather excellent French film featuring some hot stumpy sex, killer whales and ice punching.

    I'm told by media-studies types that the heavy handed symbolism in the film is intentional and... ...then I stopped listening. Sorry.

    Premium Rush. 7/10.

    Fun movie, but it’s bad in a good way... If you’re into cycling then you’ll probably enjoy it just for the little references into the fixed gear subculture.

    Watched 2 on Netflix today

    Godzilla - I had avoided this for years because everything I had seen and heard led me to believe this was pretty shit but I was up for something mindless action and thought I really should be open minded and give it a whirl. Sometimes one is presently surprised... This wasn't one of those occasions

    6/10

    Mimic - Thinking you can't go too far wrong with a De Torro movie gave this a go. I enjoyed it. Nicely shot and acted with a fast moving plot and plenty of tense moments. 8/10

    Stoker: 6/10
    Impossibly beautiful, but also frustratingly slow at times.

    Side Effects: 7/10
    I really hope Soderbergh isn't serious about retiring.

    American Mary – I don’t understand why this movie got such a positive review from Little White Lies. Those guys are usually spot on but they got this totally wrong. The acting was awful and the screenplay was weak. Its one redeeming factor was the lead actress, she was pretty good.

    The Hunger Games
    Whenever I see a film based on a book I've read I wonder if people who haven't read the book can keep up. This is tied in to one of my pet peeves but I get to that later.

    well, I haven't read The Hunger Games so this was the perfect opportunity for me to see what it's like to be in the dark. I got it, I think, but the entre film felt flat. (Again, ties in to my pet peeve). When a certain someone bites the dust I can see that I'm supposed to be touched by this. But in the film that character is hardly developed at all so the emotional impact is lsot.

    Same goes for speech by Claudius at the end. "This is what I'm brought up to do" or whatever. Just a place holder pointing to a passage in the book (I assume).

    So the pet peeve.

    Adaptations today are merely "Illustrated Classics" of the 21st century. They add nothing. They try to stay as faithful to the original as possible (and today with the CGI that is very faithful indeed). I hated Sim City for it. Total waste of time. Watchmen only got good at the new ending (that I actually preferred).

    Where are the Blade Runners or Stand By Me's?

    But yeah, I liked the film and yes, I'l probably read the books. Might skip the first one though...

    Worth watching

    Grave Encounters

    A decent found footage horror normally hits the spot with me, and this is one of the better ones I've saw.

    7.5/10

    Minority Report, Capote, The English Patient, Munich, Mystic River, Memento, The Assassination of Jesse James, Casino Royale, No Country for Old Men, Cloud Atlas...maybe even The Hobbit...

    There are so many many examples of recent films that do different things with the source material that's not direct adaptation. As many as there have ever been.

    Ive said it before in this thread (probably wrt lord of the rigs), but literal translations of books are generally shit.

    Books are books, films are films and what works in one doesnt necessarily work in another.

    I would rather Jackson excise Tom Bombadil than sit through an interminable sequence of riddles and bullshit.

    You should still read the 1st book, the film missed a lot out.

    The Possession 6.5/10

    Nothing amazing but an enjoyable horror about what the title explains. Defo worth a watch

    Most PKD adaptations are 'ideas by..', using them for a kernel of the story then expanding outwards. Total Recall, Blade Runner, Screamers, Minority Report and several others are nothing like the original story and in most cases, you probably wouldnt realise unless you were told as only broad themes remain.

    You could argue it's a dramatisation of In True Blood. If Bladerunner is an adaptation then so is Capote.

    To go even more meta, Adaptation is a dramatisation of itself.

    Yes. That's what I want to see more of. I was too quick to judge the entire film industry based on a few crappy examples. The crappiest of them all is Batman: Year One: The animated Film.

    64 minutes of my life I'll never get back.

    Being an individual with a 'problem' with needles this film was wonderful. Not the worst 'body shock' movie I've seen but it was quite ponderous and made only slightly more bearable by the ending which, while predictable, was still cool.

    Or as cool as things get in a film about injecting syphilis into your face.
