    Killing Them Softly felt like it was trying too hard to be cool and witty, but it really wasn't and its not half as clever as it thinks it is. Had its moments though, I'm a sucker for slow motion and I thought Pitt was good.

    I want to see it KTS again though, i agree with some of the sentiments. I couldn't concentrate on the film because the audio mix in the cinema was ALL over the place. I understand some of this was delibrate, but i don't think my cinema had it dialled in right.

    Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins - 6.5/10

    I saw this at the cinema back in '85 when it was called Remo: Unarmed and Dangerous. Loved it then and I think it's a decent film now.

    Despite having a bit of flat direction from Guy Hamilton, a couple of the action set pieces are good. The one with the dogs chansing after him and the Statue of Liberty in particular.

    The banter between Fred Ward and Joel Grey as his Korean trainer is good too.

    Not the greatest film ever but one that could probably do with a remake if anyone ever gave a shit.

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

    Now there's a blast from the past.

    Not seen that since it came out. Remember loving it as a kid though.

    In my mind it has awesome Matrix style slow-mo. I bet it's not quite like that in reality though. :)

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    Heh. The korean guy is one of the most racist things ever.

    Also, I used to pretend to do the finger training bit with a table tennis bat.

    Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins 8/10

    I actually watched this the other night and I still think it is a classic. It even gets referenced in Deadly Premonition! The interplay between Remo and Chun makes the movie but it also has some really memorable sequences. A tightrope walking guard dog, a fight on the Statue of Liberty, a Korean man running on water to escape from the US Army, a giant log on a cable and a great scene where Remo uses a guys diamond tooth to escape from a testing chamber with Captain Janeway from Voyager.
    It was supposed to be the start of a series but sadly this was all they made. I think there may have been a tv show pilot though.

    The Sword and the Sorceror 7.5/10

    Another movie that I watched as a kid and recently picked up on dvd. It features a lot of naked breasts (which is always a plus) and some great special effects involving the demon who the character of Cromwell (Richard Lynch) awakens at the beginning of the movie. The hero of the story Talon (Lee Horsley) has a cool sword with three blades which he can fire like projectiles although he is just as happpy to beat up bad guys with a leg of lamb. It is a strange film and is quite funny in places and has some truly nasty villains in it. This like Remo was also meant to be a series with Tales from the Ancient Empire supposed to be the next movie.

    Infernal Affairs II (2003) 6/10

    It wasnít until today (I watched the film last night) while typing Infernal Affairs II, I assumed all along I had been watching Internal Affairs II. Don't ask why..

    ĎIn this prequel to Mou gaan dou (2002), Chan Wing Yan has just become an undercover cop in the triads while Lau Kin Ming joins the police force. Both the triads and the police find an enemy in a rival crime boss.í - IMDb

    Iíve hadnít seen the previous film, although Iíd like to add to that: Needless to say, the film is difficult to follow. Itís a police, Triad thing. Thereís an awful lot of moments of meaningfulness complete appropriate (or inappropriate) music playing. It did little for me..

    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

    Thanks for the tips mate.
    I watched Unforgiven the other day. Man what a belting film. And i mean belting. I didn't want it to end.

    Clint Eastwood is a right badass. I loved the chemistry between him and Morgan Freeman. And the ending where clint nails them guys in a bar and confesses to how evil he really was. And the part where he says "Im gonna walk outta here and anyone who tries to shoot me is gonna die" or something to that effect. and then he just rides slowly out of town. Man that was epic.

    I was constantly wondering during the film "was Eastwood as evil as what people say he was? Did he kill women and children? And his speech at the end was biblical.
    What an amazing western. Im slightly ashamed i haven't watched it until now actually.

    I have The Wild Bunch here which i am just about to watch and will definitely watch them 3 films you named as your favourites over the next couple of days.

    Thanks for the reccomendations. And I really must watch True Grit too. That does look brilliant.

    I may be becoming a western fan :) Its great when being 32 years old you suddenly discover a new genre of film you like. Ive seen about 6 westerns this week. Every one of them highly enjoyable.
    So many films to watch, so little time.

    Hello Wogsy81

    Have you ever watched A Fistful of Dynamite with James Coburn or Quigley Down Under with Tom Selleck?

    Both are brilliant if slighty bizarre western movies. The former about an IRA explosives expert who helps a revelutionary and the latter about an American sharpshooter who travels to Ausfralia to take up a job offer from Alan Rickman's dastardly land owner. Both movies are worh a watch in my opinion.

    @TheMightyRose Both sound bloody brilliant. Especially the IRA one.
    I just looked it up on imdb and the original title is called "Duck you sucker" haha, that is actually a better title. And im a huge fan of Alan Rickman so the latter will definitly be getting a watch.
    I stuck both titles in my notepad along with a few other non-cheesy westerns im planning on watching. My nightime entertainment for the next week is well and truly sorted.
    Thanks for the tips bud.

    Warrior

    Maybe I'm just a sucker for these type of films but fuck me one of the best films I've seen in years. The last 10 odd minutes made me a quivering wreck. Thought the character portrayals were outstanding. Having a family and knowing the lengths I'd go to etc etc. Absolutely brilliant.
    9/10

    Primer (2004) ..what was that all about? /10

    Hmm.. Hmm.. I think I got it. Time travel and the issueís it brings. A bit like across between Flatliners (1990) and Memento (2000) without the box. The rawness in the way the films looks works well.

    Impressive, given the budget it was shot on.

    Budget:
    $7,000†(estimated)
    Gross:
    $424,760†(USA)†(17 December 2004)

    Thatís some return!

    Twilight breaking wind part two saga shit. 3/10. Had no choice. The missus had it on when I came in. Fucking hell its awful. Its like an extended episode of one tree hill in which the Xmen have moved into the town.

    I commented on the fact that there was no blood when peeps got their heads ripped off and she said that's because its a 12!!!!! A fucking 12!!!!! No blood but its fine to show peoples heads being ripped off. Most of it is whimsical standing around talking shit and the the good action bit is......well anyway. Not man stuff at all; unless u r gay then fair enough.

    Battleships. 7/10. Its one of those movies 24 jobbies. A no frills, low budget Battleship, which isn't half bad given what it is. Ignore the apaulling special effects (the producers made a rod for their own backs there with a cloaked alien ship) and there is a decent by the numbers story there based on a real life battleship.

    I think its called battleships anyway

    The Baytown Outlaws - 6/10

    Passed the afternoon, yet another film where you ask "why does it exist ?" It's a bit mental.
    Trio of redneck Alabama crackers, raised by the local sheriff to act as murdering vigilantes, take a freelance job in Texas to kidnap a disabled child from Billy Bob Thorton's low-level crime boss, and return him to his mother.

    Also features assassin hookers, black pirates in their GMC armoured car "ship", some biker Apaches, and feels similar to Smokin' Aces in some ways. Still mental though.

    I always find myself entranced while watching any of Mike Leighs character studies and this was no different. While some could call this boring and plotless, I found it typically hypnotic.
