    Yeah, when the credits rolled on Legacy I was like "Wait, what? Seriously?". It was like an ad break moment, not an ending at all.

    @Maturin - yeah, great film. Always love the song too....

    You've reminded me that I need to get hold of a copy of Frequency with Dennis Quaid. Probably one of the most underated films ever. EVER

    The boys chose two films to watch yesterday...
    Star Trek (2009) 7/10.
    Decent remake. Plot was a bit wank, really. But the boys liked it. Think its success is due to a great cast (except Pegg). Could have done with more lense flare.
    Tron Legacy 7/10.
    Beautiful to look at and one of the best soundtracks in a film (Drive being my personal fave). No idea what was going on, again a wank plot. But a good film.

    And I watched one of my guilty pleasures the other night...
    Grosse Pointe Blank 9/10
    Not even sure why I love this film, really. Just a personal fave, always has been. Just love the idea for the plot. Good script.

    Killing Them Softly 5/10

    A real disappointment - a plodding and shallow story, no chemistry between the characters, and a heavyweight cast completely wasted ("Great, James Gandolfini's finally here to get things going... Wait, where did he go?"). Felt as though the director spent too much time trying to emulate aspects of other movies rather than leaving his own mark - as far as an 'economic satire' goes I think Aladdin was better.

    The Grey

    I didn't know much about this film but I knew it was fairly polarising. I thought it was great. Well drawn characters, beautifully shot, edge of your seat tension and, I think, quite poignant in places. The philosophising wasn't exactly subtle but I thought it was handled fairly well. The ending really stayed with me and I thought about it quite a bit afterwards Ė I donít think they could have ended it any other way but I can see how some people found it unsatisfying.

    There were some glaring plot holes, it sometimes verged into melodrama, some of the characterís decisions didnít make a lot of sense and it was maybe 30 minutes too long but if you can get past these faults itís a solid and suspenseful film.

    8/10

    If is ace. Gets at least a yearly watch in our house.

    The Best exotic Marigold hotel - 7/10. Exactly what you expect when you see the cast and doesn't do anything particularly special, but is solid with a couple of funny moments. Avoided being overly schmaltzy. Maggie Smith is again ace, as is Judy Dench. Depends if you like films like this though.

    Stigmata

    An interesting take on possession with some church politics thrown in for good measure. And I always like watching Gabriel Byrne in action.

    Wreck It Ralph - 6/10

    A missed opportunity.

    Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy - 7/10

    I loved the way this film was edited so as to fill up with story and to create a sense of mild disruption. Lots of great actors and a fine score only let down by a lacking of peril.

    Looper - 9/10

    Fucking great sci-fi with deep characterization. Major kudos for not shying away from the risky and a wonderful sense of the future. The real future, not Johannesburg with firecans. The wee kid was phenomenal and the ending a real treat. Can't really fault it and Old Seth's literal downfall will surely be a classic scene.

    Snowtown (2011) hmmm.. very grim/10

    ďONE OF THE BEST & MOST BRUTAL FILMS OF THE TEARĒ LOVEFILM

    Best isnít a word Iíd use to describe Snowtown - Grim springs to mind.

    The film makers have done a grand job of depicting the grim side of Australia, a grim set of events. Itís proper depressing stuff, from the moment the film starts to the moment the film ends. All 115 minutes of it are grim. About half way through I started to feel nauseous.

    I picked up Snowtown second hand, Iíll probably sell it, as I canít imagine ever wanting to watch it again.

    What happens to the bloke at the end, as I didnít fully get why he was there, in the building with the computers and stuff. Did I miss something?

    The first 20 minutes & last 20 minutes of Life Of Pi come very close to ruining the whole thing.

    Little Man - Unrateable/10

    A midget criminal poses as a foundling to infiltrate a family after he botches a robbery. The continuity announcer declared it to be 'quite a thing'; she's wasn't wrong.

    This film does one thing I've never seen before. It's a magical scene somewhere around the 2/3rds mark.


    Other than that there's nothing new. But that's not bad, it just stops the film from being memorable. As it is it servers as a perfect end to a lazy sunday. Just enough plot, action and spook country speek to make it good enough. But nothing to push it past that.

    Bonus points for keeping it at 90minutes.

    worth watching

    The Dictator - I was pissed when I watched this, so enjoyed it rather a lot. Its *exactly* as you would expect a SBC movie to be, one part politics to 10 parts sex jokes and, thankfully, most of the jokes work.

    8/10*

    *this is a drunk rating. YMMV while sober

    I love the neo/tech-noir aesthetic, and this film does it perfectly.

    Also watched some of King Kong (2005) last night on TV, I'm surprised how bad it looked. I remember it looking pretty decent when I first saw it.

    The bloke at the end is the protagonist's step-brother.
    John Bunting has wanted to kill him for a long time (because John Bunting is an arsehole). Earlier in the film - at the beach - John tells a reluctant Mr. Protagonist to lure his step-brother into town in order to sell him a used computer for $200. The computer does not exist! It is a dastardly ruse! The half-brother, seduced by the promise of cheap personal computing, willingly follows Mr. Protagonist into the disused bank. Once there, they sit down and have a nice cup of tea. WITH MURDER CRUMPETS

    Incidentally, my playful tone belies the horror I feel. The disused bank shown in the film is the actual murderbank where Buntcunt & Co stored their victims' remains.

    Yeah, the bank vault is where they famously stored all the bodies. That's why they were called the Snowtown Murders even though most didn't happen in Snowtown.

    And it's definitely one of the best films I've seen from Australia in a while. Grim, sure, but it's supposed to be grim. And the lead performance is absolutely mesmerising.

    The Lady Vanishes (1979) - 7/10

    The cast is superb for this. Elliott Gould, Cybill Shepherd, Angela Lansbury and the always excellent Herbert Lom are all brilliant, as is everyone else for that matter.

    It's got a superb story so you can't really go wrong with that either. I forgot how stunningly beautiful Cybill Shepherd was. Wowzers!

    The new BBC adap was also on yesterday which I've recorded and started to watch. Looks like it could be pretty decent.

    Kept thinking Lom would yell out "Clouseau!!" at any point. Want to watch The Pink Panther films again.

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

    Strangers on a Train

    Really interesting premise, but the silliness gets ramped up to a farcical level that I just couldn't take. CAN HE FINISH HIS TENNIS GAME IN TIME? CAN HE POSSIBLY SURVIVE THE CLIMACTIC BATTLE ON... a merry-go-round. Are merry-go-rounds even supposed to go that fast?

    It was ok despite that, but overall it was one of the weaker ones from my recent Hitchcock binge.
