    Filth 9/10

    Really great. Think you get a lot more out of it if you're Scottish or at least familiar with the language and slang etc. Some of the insults are hilarious. Not read Welsh's book but the dialogue shines, effortlessly moving from angry arguments to total meltdowns, sometimes in the same conversation. McAvoy is utterly fantastic in it, he really should win something for this. There's a scene in which he's crying, dirty talking and wanking all at once for gods sake! (which sounds crass but must be incredibly hard to act)

    Loved it.

    Yeah, by the end it was just so far beyond "magic tricks" and sleight of hand it became ridiculous.

    "For our final magic trick...TECHNOLOGY."

    The intrigue of other heist movies like Ocean's Eleven come from how they did it, rather than whether or not they did it at all (after all, it's patently obvious from the start that they'd win). This completely ignores that, making the "how" either plainly obvious or just not even worth bothering with in the first place.
    Re: Ocean's 11, that's *exactly* the reference my wife and I made as we discussed just how shite Now You See Me is, and how completely it failed to understand how both heist movies and magician movies should work.

    @TarickStonefire You did yourself a favor turning that tripe off. What a piece of crap that movie was.
    It got such great reviews too! Utter, utter crap. And Isla Fisher, oh my God, makes you wonder how she gets any roles at all. She's not a great actress, is she? Her delivery in everything is so wooden, she only gets away with it in madcap screwball comedies because she tends to play nutters that don't need to act 'realistically'.

    Fit, though.

    Had a bit of a Stephen King session recently.

    It - 6.5/10

    It starts very well and and has a few scary moments. Tim Curry is great as Pennywise. The second half of the movie is not so good. Apart from Tim Curry the casting is very poor in my opinion. The ending is truly awful. I assume Stephen King was too shitfaced or high when he wrote the ending.

    Rose Red - 3/10

    I'd never even heard of this until I saw the movie. I hope the book is better because the film is shit. It's just not scary. The casting is particularly bad. The special effects for the ghosts look like something that was rejected from 13 Ghosts.

    Storm Of The Century - 8.5/10

    Fantastic movie. Great casting. The villain is very interesting. The movie builds to a fantstic climax.

    The Mist 8/10

    A town is invaded by a mist that carries vile monsters in it. A bunch of people hole up in a supermarket and try to survive. Loved it.

    I can't wait to see Filth.

    Runner Runner - 4.5/10

    A film that "captures the excitement of online gambling!". If by that they mean some obese, unwashed dude sat in his skidmarked underpants who scratches his balls and then giving his fingers a good sniff, then it's got it spot on. It can't be anything else if the quality of the film is anything to go by.

    The plot follows Timberlake as a dude to looses everything and yet somehow manages to get a flight to Costa Rica to confront Batman Ben, who he thinks cheated him out of his money.

    It's well shot, so the films looks very nice. A bored looking Gemma Arterton is there as the boring love interest who isn't that interesting. The only semi-interesting thing is this is seeing Batman Ben play nasty.

    There are a couple of decent scenes in there when Batman Ben is really quite nasty. Timberlake is his usual flat, boring self once again.

    It's also the most predictable film I've seen for ages. No tension, no suspense, no thrills and not much at all on the way of sex and violence, despite the 15 certificate. Don't bother, even if you're a big fan of Gemma.

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

    Yeah, its a really good film. King actually said he wished he had thought of the movie ending, rather than the one he actually wrote.

    The Mist "NOVELLA" ;-P had a much more open ending if I recall. Left it open for Return of the Mist.

    Both are good.

    The ending to The Mist is entirely unearned & is bolted on to the end in such a way as to make it entirely redundant.

    I loved it at first but the more I think about it the more bullshit it is.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    I think it's a perfectly valid ending. The guy thought that was it for the world and did what he thought was best with the limited information he had at the time.

    If it's the 'if only he'd waited ten seconds' bit of the ending, yeah, that was sucky.

    Cloud Atlas - 3/10

    A terrible film. It takes six simple stories, cuts them up with a rusty butcher's knife, splices them together in an incomprehensible order and removes any semblance they may still have had to the source material. And spends 165 minutes doing it.

    Looked nice with some interesting makeup jobs.

    I'm reading this right now and despite having a fucked up sense of humour and being the most crass cunt I know the book is seriously heavy going. If the book can make me blush I think I'm going to have to wait for the dvd before seeing the film!

    I enjoyed R.Point the other day. creepy Asian horror. bit like, platoon with ghosts etc.
    9/10

    Also rewatched from beyond, and Existenz. I love horrors, and although from beyond isn't scary its highly watchable. And Existenz is good as well.
    8/10 for both.

    Fast and the Furious whatever number we're up to now

    Wife wanted to watch it, as she enjoyed the previous ones. Even she didn't look overly entertained. Terrible jokes, longest runway in the history of the earth (by my reckoning, at least the circumference of Germany) and a plot that makes Twilight look like a piece of Shakespeare.

    3/10
    I like how they persist with changing up or down gears and actually using full throttle as tricks to go faster when they were already supposed ot be racing at full speed.

    Yeah even in movie magic land that runway works out at many miles long!

    Fast 6 was great fun. Not quite quite as good as 5. Me and my mates laughed our sales off the whole way through, although worryingly we were the only ones. (the Vin Diesel flying headbutt did get everyone guffawing though).

    Oh also, I genuinely think that the final runway scene is one of the best action scenes I've seen in years. It's nonsense, yes, but it builds and builds very effectively. Loads of fun.

    You're rather forgetting the suggestion that the mist is everywhere ans the whole world is fucked. Rather than, you know, a local problem that appears to be neatly dealt with using some flamethrowers...

    Movie ending ruined a pretty great adaptation, whatever Mr King says.
