    Looking at 'the best of' is again somewhat missing the point.

    Let's face it, Dr No was first and best, and even it isn't that great a movie.

    That's not fair. I'm quite happy for people to agree with me and tell me I'm right.

    North by Northwest

    Previously I'd watched Strangers on a Train. This really was just as silly when I look back on it, but the silliness didn't distract me nearly as much as Strangers.

    It was a great little thriller, basically. Although I don't really get what the big deal with Cary Grant was, the way that women probably half his age just swoon over him in this.

    I guess maybe because that sort of charm just seems so out of place these days, except for someone like, say, George Clooney.

    Anyway... 88%.

    The World Is Not Enough is much better than Tomorrow Never Dies. The villain in TND was and still is probably the worst of all the bond villains.
    TWINE has Denise Richards in it though...who needs to not speak. Ever.
    All she needed to do was just stand there and look amazingly hot but no. They give her the name 'Christmas' which in turn leads to Bond's seediest line in history 'I only thought christmas comes once a year'

    I still enjoyed the film though, Pierce is my favourite Bond, sadly he never got to redeem himself after the woeful DAD.

    Tron Legacy

    Avoided this like the plague… until I saw it for £3 in Tesco and had nothing better to do. As an extended Daff Punk video I thought it was pretty good. Actually… it was fine in all ways. Completely fine. The whole concept now seems silly and has been done too many times, so I think this film did its best with an idea which has aged BADLY (big credit for trying hard). You can watch it. There is a mildly attractive lady. Things explode and make noises. Neon. I mean… it’s not good, but it’s a lazy Sunday afternoon film. Like the original. Not quite sure why it got such bad press.

    5/10

    Ironic this post came in the middle of all the bond talk given he supposedly turned down Dr. No to make this.

    Love this film. One of my favourite films to watch when I'm in my sick bed.

    Sorry to pull things back to 80's films but you lot went off track whilst I was at work!
    My 7 year old loves any 80's early 90's films. He gets very bored with modern films. He's obsessed with Labyrinth. Same goes for music. He loves 80's stuff. He listens to a lot of modern music, but prefers 80's.

    God, it's been a slow year at the movies so far. Really should take the opportunity to explore more of the Netflix library. Anyway...

    Oz: The Great and Powerful - 6/10

    Less obnoxious than the Alice in Wonderland remake but still not that special. The side characters such as the China Girl and the flying monkey were fun, but on the whole the movie was miscast. James Franco gets a pass, but only slightly. Robert Downey Jr. was initially cast as Oz, and would have done a much better job; the real disaster is Mila Kunis. Much as I love her, she was just terrible as the green witch. Could not take her seriously.

    Visuals were nice, but still a little dodgy in places, especially when the characters were flying. Flying =/= standing in a crucifix pose and awkwardly hovering through the air. Actually, the part where the visuals faltered the most was the integration of the actors into the environment. It just looked like they were in front of a green screen the entire time. This may have worked better as an entirely animated film.

    There were a couple fantastic moments, especially during the climax. Overall, though, just a steaming pile of meh.

    Midnight in Paris 4/10

    Mainly watched this because of the setting (one scene is smack bang where I proposed :)), but also because I've never enjoyed a Woody Allen film. This seemed to follow a familiar pattern of style over substance, relying entirely on the viewer to accept an empty and ridiculous storyline can be overcome by siding with his grating self indulgence. Basically 90 mins of bad impersonations of people who used to live in Paris; you're better off reading Wikipedia instead.

    Triangle (2009) 6/10

    I keep seeing the 3D Dvd cover to this, and finally decided to give it a go. The films not rubbish, and it’s not that great either. There is a story of sorts, that works in a straight line for the first 40 minutes, and from then on, it repeats, each time showing a little bit more. It reminded me a little of playing a video game, only to keep on dying after making progress on the previous attempt. The film has a hint of Groundhog Day about it in that respect.

    The lead female, Melissa George bothered me a little. She has what appears to be oversized teeth caps. Her acting is ok, but there was always this nagging thought someone else could have done a superior job, given the same role.

    One thing is for sure, watch it once, and I doubt you’ll want to watch it again.

    Night at the Museum (2006) 6/10

    This didn’t really tick enough boxes for me. Sure the CGI is impressive, as is the audio which is epic, the type of epic audio normally associated with a magical Spielberg or Disney picture. Everything else fails to match up. The story is quite boring. I was expecting more from Ricky Gervais, who seems shoehorned in, and slightly out of his depth. He appears for what probably amounts to little more than 3 minutes screen time. Sure its probably aimed more towards kids, but so is Toy Story, and I enjoyed that. It all ends on a super happy ending, the kind of happy ending you can picture hoards of people exiting the cinema to, complete with big smiley faces. That felt good.

    TombStone. 9/10.

    Im not a fan of westerns, never have been in my life. But today i watched 3:10 to Yuma (2007) which was rather excellent. This put me in a strange mood for watching more westerns so i downloaded TombStone and boy is it a belting film. I may be becoming a western fan.
    Regarding TombStone: Amazing characters, locations and script with Val Kilmer playing a blinder. I really really enjoyed it.

    I think i may look up some more westerns to watch as i feel over the decades i have wrote of the western genre as not for me. Maybe its that 60's cheesy John Wayne sterotype that has put me off but recent/modern westerns i seem to like.

    Im planning on watching Unforgiven tomorrow. Ive heard great things about it.

    Had a Brian De Palma double bill recently. I think he's always been underrated and I really don't get the hate that some people have for him. He by and large hits and misses a lot but when he does get it right, he's brilliant.

    I know he's trying to do Hitchcock sometimes and he's nowhere near close but he seems to be the only director that's prepared to have a go. He's great with the camera and seems to be a bit over-loving of big bombastic film scores. He does sometimes try a bit too hard to throw audiences off though. Looking forward to seeing Passion sometime this year.

    Anyhow, to the films.

    Body Double - 8/10

    Certainly one of his better films. One of those twisty-turny plots which isn't that predictable at all. I've not seen this for years and totally forgot about the cameo from Frankie Goes To Hollywood!.

    I think the cinematic score for this is superb. He also nails his setup shots where key characters walk and out of frame. Specifically the shopping mall scene which is really well done.

    I liked this a lot.

    Carrie - 6/10

    It's not really aged that well to be honest. The film is saved by the performances of Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie. However, THAT scene always manages to get to me. I'm quite intrigued by the remake but that's all.

    Going to watch me a few more of his films methinks although I'll probably skip Mission To Mars :-) Femme Fatale also has the best trailer ever.

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

    Skyfall

    Only just got around to watching this. Never saw Quantum of Solace and thought Casino Royale was slow and dragged out. Really enjoyed this one though. The villain was great, the action was top notch and Q is more than just a gadget man. I liked how the story was more personal, too. Probably my favourite bond movie, actually.

    4/5

    I rented it, watched it twice then bought the DVD. I think it's a cracking little budget horror with a nice line in black comedy and a couple of twists that I completely didn't see coming first time round, and still enjoy when they hit. I'm only watching in SD though, so I can't detract for any invisible teeth caps.

    Costner's Wyatt Earp is a better film personally. I actually prefer Dennis Quaid's Doc Holliday too.

    Unforgiven is amazing. As for my three favourite westerns?

    Once Upon a time in the West - English
    Seven Samurai - Japanese
    Sholay - Hindi

    Other great westerns and/or worth watching:

    Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
    Dances with Wolves
    The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada
    Hombre
    Gunfight at the OK Corral - same story as Tombstone/Wyatt Earp (Earp, Holliday and Johnny Ringo are kinda holy folklore for westerns) and its headlined by Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas. You can't get more manly than that. :)
    The Proposition - brutal, brutal film.
    No Country for Old Men
    The Assassination of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford
    True Grit
    The Professionals
    The Wild Bunch - even by westerns standards, the violence is insane and brutal.
    Open Range


    Oh yeah, the Dollars Trilogy and Akira Kurosawa are a law unto them self. Although the Dollars sequels are pretty damn good and aren't direct remakes of Kurosawa's westerns.

    A Fistful of Dollars is a remake of Kurosawa's Yojimbo; both good but Yojimbo is just so much better because Toshiro Mifune is a freaking baws. Also, the music in Yojimbo is just AWESOME.

    If you enjoy Fistful/Yojimbo then its worth seeing all of Kurosawa's westerns (Already listed Seven Samurai above) and the Dollars sequels.

    Btw, your observation about the 60s/John Wayne era of cheesy westerns is relevant. Westerns took a full u-turn from the the late 60s/70s onwards. A genre where the "good guys" always won to always losing. They became incredibly reflective about the lawlessness and violence prevalent in both the genre and the actual pioneer/cowboy era in the US.

    Saw The Place Beyond the Pines last night, and it's going to be hard to say too much without spoiling the film really. So I won't ;)

    I will say this though, the cast were excellent all round, especially Gosling and Cooper showing serious acting chops. Ben Mendelsohn was also great in a nicely placed supporting role, and Dane DeHann (who was in Chronicle) was also very well cast.

    The Mike Patton soundtrack fit really well, and helped create some really tense moments, and the film was nicely shot too, it was certainly easy on the eye (and not just because of Eva Mendes and Rose Bryne) :D

    I wasn't sure what to expect, and I did get something different to what I expected from the trailer - not a bad thing though, it was a really emotional film at moments, and is pretty weighty in tone.

    It's not about Gosling riding stunt bikes and being all badass, it's a really interesting and well developed character piece, and the film is really worth your time (it clocks in at 2 hours 10, so for those of you who get bored with a film that isn't all action scenes, you'd better sit this one out).

    I'm not quite sure about describing Kurosawa Ronin type films as "westerns". I know what you're saying, but it's almost as if Ronin films and westerns are both sub-genres of a wider genre or something. It's perhaps an unnecessary pedantic point, but films that are not set in the West (and are in fact quite definitely set in the far East) surely can't be describe as westerns?

    Anyway, I prefer Pekinpah's westerns to Leone personally.

    Yes, you are being pedantic. :)

    I don't see why it has to be always the American west when there are excellent films that are very much Westerns regardless of location.

    And that both Yojimbo and Seven Samurai were remade into Westerns says it all really. All they did was change the location and time period. Some of the social commentary in Seven Samurai was lost/dropped in The Magnificent Seven but aside from that, it and A Fistful of Dollars are virtually identical.

    And I prefer Peckinpah's westerns to Leone's as well.

    They do share a lot of DNA since most things from the end of the Roy Rodgers era either ape Kurosawa movies or ape the films that aped them.

    It is a bit of a first year film studies point to make, though.

    I really liked the film and many elements of it felt very reminiscent of the best Westerns i've seen.
