    I liked Four Lions but I disagree with that police quote or any of the police bits really. Throughout the whole film it was these four bumbling idiots with everyone else being pretty normal. Then the police are almost slapstick in nature. It just felt like a dig and didn't fit.

    I think generally it's a little bit inconsistent. I like it, and I think broadly speaking the message is sound and it's a funny film.

    But because it's posing as "sharp satire", that invites you to be analytical about it, and that's where it starts to fall apart a bit.

    I think Morris is probably too clever for his own good really. He seems torn between making a commercially viable comedy, and an incredibly biting satirical commentary on the war with terror. It ends up landing somewhere in the middle and not quite succeeding fully as either, but if you don't press too hard it just about holds up.

    I mainly gave Four Lions a ten because it makes 99% of other comedy films seem incredibly safe and neutered.

    It's a film that has easy accessible humour but some really serious content. It might not have been 100% successful all the time but I'm glad it tried.

    "Fuck Mini Babybel" is the best "line" in the film

    About Time. Actually got pretty bored half way through, not that funny, a lot of bits and generally the concept not that well thought out. But also very moving and emotional in parts, all wrapped up in a trite message. Real mish mash but for the father/son relationship alone it scrapes a 60%.

    Upstream Color. 7/10.

    New film written by, directed by, produced by, soundtracked by, filmed by, edited by and starring Shane Carruth, who did Primer. Similarly to Primer, a lot of the time I had no fucking idea what was going on, but it was still an enjoyable experience. I would explain a bit about the plot, but it wouldn't really help.

    EDIT: are we not allowed square brackets on here?

    Requiem for a Dream (2000) 9/10

    Iíve known of the existence of this film via itís bland Dvd cover, that sends out the message Ďdonít watch meí. Itís a pretty good film, and does what it does well. If youíve ever thrown money into a fruit machine, only to throw more money into it in the belief the win has to come in, and it doesnít, well the four characters in Requiem for a Dream, chase their vision of happiness in this manner. Life goes from shit, to shitter, and there's no way back.



    Edit: I don't think i've seen anything quite like it. The ending leaves the viewer on a huge downer. There's a message to: Don't ever go down this road, if you can help it.

    It should be mandatory watching at schools really. Don't think any headmasters would have the balls to play it though.

    Anyone going to see Diana this weekend? The reviews are scathing.

    Fast and Furious 6 - 7/10

    Fun but not as good as the previous entry. Also The Stath! I though he'd be playing The Transporter dude. No, it looks as though he's going to be the bad-ass mofo!

    The Sapphires - 9/10. Surprisingly good light-ish drama about a female aboriginal group singing in Vietnam to entertain the troops. Chris O'Dowd is their manager and is very watchable as usual, he is especially good in one rather shocking scene near the end.

    Good music, great voices, bad miming, but ultimately a lot deeper than it might appear to be on the surface, and I really liked it.

    She should have held down Y to bail out before it was too late.

    Not really sensitive film making is it? I remember seeing a photo of her online in the car after the crash. I have never been able to delete it from my memory

    Live and Let Die (1973) 6/10 Blu-ray

    In the past, Iíd only ever caught bits and pieces of this film and thought it was ok. Now having watched the whole film from start to finish, I found it not so great. Bar one or two moments, the Blu-ray picture never impressed as much as some other Bond Blu-rays (Dr. No from 1963 looks superior). The film also opened my eyes to the fact Sean Connery is better than Roger Moore.

    -

    For You Eyes Only (1981) 7/10 Blu-ray

    Roger Moore is back and looking, atleast in some scenes, older than ever. Carole Bouquet looks stunning, and total Bond movie material. Blu-ray quality is better than Live and Let Die. While being better than many other Bond films, I found it never really feels like it is firing on all cylinders. Thereís a sense of story, all be it drifting along, slowly towards and end.

    You score films in a very weird way. FYEO better than LALD? Madness!

    Jack reacher, very poor overall, the second eponymous film I have seen recently that was not really worth my time, the other being Alex cross.

    I'm with blacksea in preferring FYEO. I just prefer it. It's a bit more grounded in reality (thoguh not much - it's still Bond after all), plus I quite liked it was a bit less conventional. LALD is still awesome though, and definitely has the stronger soundtrack.
