    Decent enough, with some good jokes and performances. No heart though.

    Dial M for Murder (1954) -- in 3D!

    Went to the BFI to see a restored version of this. Hitch filmed it in 3D back in the fifties, which is an amazing thing to consider.

    It's a pretty long winded talkie, and the 3D is very subtle. NFT1 is such a lovely auditorium that it immediatelt makes any film you see in there one point better. So it gets...

    Wrath Of The Titans

    The Clash remake was bloody awful but I like a bit of Greek mythology me (thanks to the original Clash) so glutton for punishment and with expectations meter set to zero I thought I'd have a laugh and cringe at this and was surprised to find it a fairly watchable film that's quite a spectacle FX wise.

    Still a strange film though with aussie, northern, cockney accents all over pulling you out of the world they are trying to portray and even without the silly marine haircut Worthington is still out of place and awkward (why is he a big star anyway? He's fucking terrible in everything I see him in).

    Brainless, cheesey, extremely dumb but enjoyable with good action and FX and somehow better than the first.

    The Raven - 5/10

    Again...nice to look at but I didn't give a fuck for any of the characters. John Cusack has been in some dross lately.

    The World's End

    Quite liked Shaun despite its flaws, and I loved Fuzz. This is by far the weakest of the three though. As others have said, it does just feel like an episode of Dr Who. That would be fine if it was funny enough, but it just isn't. There are a few good laughs but not nearly enough. A big disappointment.


    The Hunter (2011)

    Loved this. Perfect casting with Dafoe as a solitary man of nature. Beautifully shot, with a subtle and graceful tale. It has a truly haunting quality to it.

    James and the Giant Peach - Still really cool. The live action stuff is really stylised and kind of cheap looking to the point that it looks like the set of a play, but the animated sections still look brilliant. Its a great story and the film is really faithful to it.

    Oddly, for the first time I noticed that its Richard Dreyfuss as the voice of the caterpillar, not Brian Doyle Murray as I always assumed it was, for some reason.

    The World's End - 5/10

    Spent nearly 2 hours waiting for the laughs to start, very disappointing compared to the other two films. Should have learnt from the awful trailer, but couldn't resist going to see it.

    Doesn't compare to the first two. Made me nostalgic for Shaun and fuzz. Wished it was just pegg and frost, the rest of the cast felt out of place. And frosts personality change half way through jarred. Really dragged in places. The premise just isn't as good as the other films. Terrible effects too.

    But it has its moments, and is consistently funny, just not as funny, clever or entertaining as the others. It had the whiff of middle aged men trying to recapture past glories, ironically. SHAME
    I really hate to point this out, but that actually was the whole point of the film; I know you say "ironically", but when there have been interviews with Pegg, Frost and Wright saying that that is the point of the film, reflecting that they're knowingly in that exact position in their own lives, you're a bit late to the party. So, is it ironic that you think it was ironic, when they were actually reflecting on how ironic it was they were making this film?
    I meant: it was a group of men trying to recapture past glories (Spaced, SotD, Hot Fuzz) and failing. As in, this film is nowhere near as good as the others. So yeah, it's fairly ironic.

    Olympus Has Fallen (2013)

    Die Hard in the White House. Evil foreigners ramshackle the White House leaving a Scottish Secret Service agent to rescue the President. Lots of people get killed in the process, and the bad guys are brutal. The good thing about this film is there are no token black guys or silly side kicks.

    Leave your brain at the door and you will enjoy this. Loud, dumb with zero thinking.

    I thought morgan freeman was in this as wise old token black guy? (Not seen film)

    The Watch 61%
    As many moments that piss you off with how shit they are as there are laughs. But there are laughs. If you can watch Ben Stiller films it's not the worst one, not going to win over anyone who hates him though.
    Moss from The IT Crowd is good in it. He keeps saying he's called Jamarcus but it's definitely Moss from The IT Crowd.

    GI Joe Retribution 15%
    How the fuck did this get made? Utterly baffling.
    The Rza put's in one of the worst performances ever captured by a camera. At least it was the worst performance ever captured by camera until they shot the rest of the film.

    Rust & Bone 90%
    Beautifully shot, brilliantly performed. Totally fell in love with this film. Marion Cotillard is a goddess.
    Strangely uplifting considering how grim it gets at times.
    The bit where the little lad falls through the ice stayed with me for ages after the film ended. I can't cope with shit like that since I became a Dad.

    Why are people saying Hot Fuzz was good when the talk about The Worlds End?

    Hot Fuzz was an awful, unfunny shitpile.
  • Deleted user 29 July 2013 12:15:16
    Good old spuds and his cheery moods and love of everything.

    Happiest guy in the world.

    Yeah. Hot Fuzz was hilarious and charming. Especially when compared to The Worlds End.

    I sort of liked SoTD. Does that count?

    I also think Hot Fuzz was a pretty average film. I wouldn't say it was awful or unfunny, but it was closer to those than it was "hilarious" to be brutally frank.

    Appear to be in the minority but I think Hot Fuzz is way funnier than Shaun. Watched it way more often too.

    It clearly has structural issues and doesn't hold together nearly as well as Shaun as a cohesive film but I think it's more fun.
