    And me. IN fact, I love requiem, and Pi is my least favourite.

    I'm sure I've posted this sort of thing before but what the heck.

    I think The Fountain was unfairly missold by the posters and blurb and stuff - mainly the "A love story across a thousand years" stuff, which confuses what the film is actually about and makes it seem massively pretentious (when it's actually only slightly pretentious and takes place in one time).

    I reckon The Fountain is brill.

    I quite like The Fountain as well.

    I don't agree with the point about there being an issue with the scripts he works on. I think they're very good generally. Fountain was the only one I can think of issues with.

    I really enjoyed The Fountain.

    For me :

    Requiem
    Fountain
    Black Swan
    The Wrestler

    In that order of preference but all 10/10

    Pi

    8/10

    Stolen - Too much time from my life/10

    Watched this on Netflix US. One of the best cartoon type baddies ever does not make this anything resembling good.

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

    Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons

    This is Stephen Chow's new film, famous for Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle. 2 of my favorite films, so I had high expectations for this one. Have to say I was quite disappointed. The first half of the film was brilliant, lots of action and comedy in the usual Chow style, but midway the film just loses its way and staggers to recover and the singing sections didn't help. It's like they blew most of the budget in the first few scenes, becasue there is a noticable drop in set quality in the second half of the film. It loses the film feeling to it, and looks no better than your typical Chinese TV wuxia epics like tian long ba bu, genius physicians, twin of brothers etc... (yes I'm a creepy sinophile)

    I was also a little miffed that chow didn't stare in this one, but to be fair the new guy has a certain chowness to him.

    Anyway,

    6/10 - good but no where as good as his old films.

    So many films are missold now. So are games. Its depressing.

    Then people go well that film wasn't all explosions and end of the world like (the road) its shit and hold that opinion for life.

    /Feels like marvin the paranoid android. Sorry :D

    Anyway..

    Fight Club

    Still pretty fucking cool. I wonder how this would be sold now in trailers. IN A WORLD, UNDERGROUND, MEN PUNCH EACH OHTER. Que fast cuts of people fighting eachother, and then a big MASSIVE explosion.

    8/10

    These days the twist wouldn't get past the internet. Actually fuck that, Fox would put it front and centre in the trailer.
  • Deleted user 27 March 2013 17:23:31
    Quite a lot of films still have twists despite the internet's prevalence.
  • Deleted user 27 March 2013 17:27:05
    The twist didn't get past the internet even in its day. To be honest, the twist is kind of depowering anyway. The book was two-thirds written before Palahniuk even thought of making them the same person.

    Go 70s - when thrillers were actually thrilling.

    Marathon Man, The Conversation, French Connection, The Long Goodbye, 3 Days of the Condor, Black Sunday, The Odessa File etc etc

    @LeoliansBro

    Haha holy shit. I just checked that. Its true!
  • Deleted user 27 March 2013 17:50:57
    I say go earlier than the 70s too. Get some classic noir in there with Double Indemnity, Big Sleep and Maltese Falcon. Or delve into some Hitchcock.

    Not sure Crocodile Dundee is a thriller.

    How about Burn After Reading? Or Syriana, personal favourite that one.

    Feels like I'm just watching crap now (see my Sightseers comments from yesterday) just to see a film cause I've seen pretty much every good film there is.

    I'm in the mood for a good thriller, anyone take on the challenge and recommend one I haven't seen? :p
    As above The Conversation, The French Connection, hell Rear Window man! Otherwise I'd say that state of play was ok. And I'm planning on watching Modus Anomali later. Which reminds me, A Bittersweet Life. excellent film!
