    The City of Lost Children

    A strange French film with the mighty Ron Perlman. I liked it a lot, it has an odd mix of fairy tale and Dickens about it.

    7/10

    Watched this years ago. Good film with great vibes. You might want to check out Delicatessen too.

    I didnt say i hate it. I just didnt think it was very good as a film. It was indeed very well sung and Anne Hathaway was really good but on the whole, weak and lacking any sort of impact.

    And the spoken dialogue in the film is sung as well. Which irritated me no end.
    Isn't that the point though? It's a musical, there are no spoken words.

    It's kind of unusual to have a musical (especially a film version) where all the dialogue is sung. That's usually reserved for operas or Andrew Lloyd Webber crap.

    It's a specific type of musical. I forget the name. There are a fair few. Martin Guerre is another one.

    There are several spoken lines in the film.

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.

    I can't suspend disbelief and go with a movie if the dialogue is sung. Musicals make me angry for some reason. They seem deeply uncool.

    I don't mind musicals as long as they take place on a stage.
    I find them infuriating on a screen. They fill me with inexplicable rage.

    Chicago
    Grease
    The Producers
    Cabaret
    Guys and Dolls

    None had speaking parts being sung. And this list is just of the top of my head. Good musicals too, especially Chicago; in fact good film overall.

    Loved the musical Chicago at the theatre. HATED the film version. CZJ is no Leigh Zimmerman either.

    Porco Rosso

    Decent Studio Ghibli film but nowhere near the heights of Arriety and Princess Mononoke for me. Starting to look old now (because, well, it is) but that adds to the charm. Also, it's one of the few earlier Ghibli films where the English dub doesn't ruin it.

    6/10

    Looper

    In this horrible, horrible future, where violence seems common-place if old-Joe's story arc is anything to go by, apparently it's easier to go to all of the expense and effort to send humans back into the past to get murdered there, even though in some cases they burn houses down to, one would assume, suggest that people died in the fire, rather than murder them in the future...erm, present...because. Oh fuck it I don't know. That whole 'send people back to die' nonsense made no sense to me at all, seeing what the future was actually like.

    And why they transferred them to a field in the open for somebody to shoot them when they could have dropped them into the middle of the ocean, or space, or a volcano, or anywhere else where they didn't need to employ people and pay them to kill them is quite beyond me.

    Quite a few inconsistencies and flaws that annoyed me as well:

    - drinks appearing in the cafe when she hadn't delivered them yet
    - Willis being left handed and the younger one (forget his name) being right handed
    - the TK kid (Cid) giving the answer of 32 as '3x8' and then putting it on the 7x8 tile
    -nobody being in that car at the end when it gets turned over, as they stuck a camera at the front of it where you could clearly see nobody was in it
    - this one I can't be sure but I think the younger Joe got shot in the right shoulder at the barn, and I'm sure she treated his left shoulder outside the house


    Plus quite a few more. There was just so much that either didn't make sense or they didn't pay enough attention to for me. And I've never had to turn the volume up and down so much in my life. Spoken sections were often inaudible unless the volume was right up, explosions were then fuck off loud, some gun shots sounded like farts, others nearly had my ears bleeding.

    As a 'take brain out, watch explosions, don't think hard about it' film it's okay, but I wasn't in that mood tonight.

    4/10

    Oh, total agreement about the stage version being better. I just happened to like the film too. Richard Gere nailed his part.

    REC 2

    Occasionally tense, but ultimately cheap.

    The infection's origin story is much more interesting than I expected, and the building in which the terrors unfold has more personality than the characters themselves. A real sense of place is evoked. I even like the non-linear structure.

    What I dislike about this film is what I don't like about a lot of horror in general: it's cheap. It puts hapless, idiotic people into deadly situations and sadistically documents the inevitable outcome. The characters in REC2 are helpless and hopeless, facing a relentless and merciless threat. I'd be fine with that if it weren't for the fact that they're dumber than the actual zombies.

    They're also very bland, not very likeable, and spout flavourless dialogue.

    'Idiot characters' seems like an inconsequential gripe for a horror flick, and yet I find that it nullifies whatever enjoyment I would have otherwise gleaned from it.

    5/10

    Fire in the Sky

    An ok film about alien abduction. Robert Patrick in a beard was amusing.

    Just watched:

    The collection.

    Sequel to the collector which I actually enjoyed. The sequel ramps up the scale but its your typical horror affair, massive plot holes, tons of gore, forgettable characters. I got what I expected from it.

    The Rules of Attraction (2002) 8/10

    Interesting, well acted, and *the rewind idea seemed original. The Dvd cover is ok, although what really tempted me to give the film ago were the words ‘From the corrupt minds that brought you American Psycho and Pulp Fiction’. To be honest it failed to beat either of those two films.

    *The rewind idea: Play a scene from start to finish, rewind it throwing in a couple of alternate angles (to make it more interesting) stop at any given moment, and continue on a new route via a different character, and on reaching a certain point, re-apply the rewind idea.

    Going to have to pick this up on Blu-ray. I haven't seen Raiders for years. Come to think about it, I never checked out the Dvd.

    I'd say the cover for the DVD is much better than the cover for the blu-ray. It is difficult though as the blu-ray is probably better as it has more pixels. Not sure why they would pick the better picture for the DVD as the DVD is not the best version as the blu-ray has more pixels.

    Star Trek: Into Darkness. 9/10

    Glad I managed to keep it spoiler free. I can see it putting afew backs up here and there but I have to say we loved it. It's just fun. I think it's in safe hands from here on out. Hope the franchise runs and runs.


    Argo. 9/10

    Just brilliant film-making and incredibly tense. Great script and performances. A really slick production.
  • Deleted user 19 May 2013 18:00:52
    I like this cover, it has a charm to it that no other cover has



    but then sometimes just going simple is the best thing to do



    of course you should always think about widescreen releases, though this doesn't have enough yellow for my liking



    this black one would stand out well



    this one combines yellow with a red strip at the top which is nice



    this is probably my favourite back cover



    but this foreign one has some nice touches
