    Yeah, liked that one. Loved the bit at the start when he asks the woman working the cinema box office if the film has started yet. She tells him it's two minutes into the film and he refuses to go and watch it. I think I'm exactly the same!

    Dunno what they were smoking with that theatrical cut.
    It was Fox trying to get more showings into a cinema day. The extras on the extended version go into a lot of detail with some very angry input from those that made the film.

    The Director's Cut is THE cut of the film. The one given to Fox originally. And Fox had it butchered.

    There are whole subplots that fully explain character motivation that are removed from the theatrical cut. Sybilla is particularly damaged by this - as a character she is related to that is very important is removed from the theatrical cut. Her actions make much more sense once that character is back in the film.

    Also there's much more detail about Orlando Bloom's character removed too - such as his war experience, relationship to the priest in his village etc. Again this is a character that makes much more sense in the longer cut.

    Believe me the difference between the proper cut of Kingdom of Heaven and the crap shown at the cinema is night and day. It's a film worthy of awards that was ruined by the studio and so it received none, and the film still has a bad reputation it doesn't deserve.

    If the director's cut has all shots of Bloom removed I could see how it would become a decent film.

    Speaking of middle class white people's problems, I watched Annie Hall for the first time last night. Really enjoyed it. Is the first Woody Allen film I've seen where he's actually in it (for some reason only seem to have seen some of his more recent stuff). Very funny in places, chuckled quite a few times at some of the lines he comes out with. Loved the subtitled-thoughts that popped up in one scene, on top of what they were saying to each other, and the fourth-wall breaking moments were well done.

    Reminded me a little of Blue Jasmine, in that it focuses on various points of a person's life and their relationship to another. Will need to check out more of his backlog.
    It is my humble opinion that in purely objective terms, it's the best film ever made.

    Stylistically and technically groundbreaking in pretty much every single scene, yet all holds together meaningfully and coherently. It never feels forced (it actually feels quite light), and it's touching and funny without ever feeling manipulative or sentimental. It's just fantastic.

    The Royal Tenenbaums is one of the finest things committed to film. I don't know what it is about that movie but I absolutely adore it.
    On the other hand, I could barely watch half of it. In fact I'm not even sure I got that far. Never watched a single one of his films since.

    I kind of liked that one about high school politics that Bill Murray and Reese Witherspoon was in, but even that was a bit navel gazey.

    Any Netflix library in the world for a couple of quid a month? Gimme!

    You appear to have merged Rushmore with Election in your head.

    Oh. That's quite likely.

    Yeah both sound familiar. I liked the Reese Witherspoon one, is that Election? Is that even the same director?

    Rushmore, yeah I think I remember now. Yeah that was a bit boring.

    No, Election is Alexander Payne, who also does navel-gazey films about white middle class people. Sideways etc.

    Rushmore's the one with Jason Schwartzmann as the teenager who falls for one of the teachers at his school. Bill Murray's the wealthy businessman friend he has.

    As for Wes Anderson I like Rushmore and Royal Tenenbaums, but nothing else really worked for me (although I think Fantastic Mr Fox is actually pretty cool).

    I hated the Darjeeling Limited. Proper hated.

    Wes Anderson hasn't done anything good since Nightmare on Elm Street.

    1) Moonrise Kingdom
    2) The Fantastic Mr. Fox
    3) The Grand Budapest Hotel
    4) The Royal Tenenbaums
    5) Rushmore
    6) The Darjeeling Limited
    7) The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

    Haven't seen Bottle Rocket, cheers

    There's a bit of a gap between Rushmore and Darjeeling, and Life Aquatic was the only one I didn't really get much enjoyment from.

    I love Rushmore and Royal so much. I think both have an edge that his other films don't. I proper love Wes Anderson, but I found GBH quite grating. It just seemed so far away from the mournful lonely tone of Royal and Rushmore

    My order.

    Rushmore
    The Royal Tenenbaums
    The Fantastic Mr Fox
    The Darjeeling Limited
    Moonrise Kingdom
    Bottle Rocket
    The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
    The Grand Budapest Hotel

    Although it's ages since I saw Zissou and I might find it less irritating now.

    Maybe if they didn't do it in every fucking film, it wouldn't be so easy to score points...
    Bottle Rocket, Fantastic Mr Fox (to a degree) and Bottle Rocket are all films about people who are poor/not-well-off trying to cope.

    Today, the EG film thread has taught me that Wes Anderson films are rubbish, as are Nic Cage films.

    More advice to be ignored.

    I love Life Aquatic and Royal, absolutely hated hated hated Darjeeling. Didn't really like Fox. Enjoyed Moonrise Kingdom quite a bit though. Not seen Rushmore, but it's in my Netflix list.

    The Hunger Games 2

    Better than the first and sets it up nicely for the next film. PSH seemed to have an important role, had he already filmed his scenes? If not than that's an obvious problem.

    I'm a little in love with Jennifer Lawrence.

    8/10

    Jennifer Lawrence is something special. I still can't believe her performance in American Hustle. I don't know how a 23 year old played that role like that but damn.

    Charismatic is a rare quality but she has it.

    Yes. The original cut is fine as well, if you mute the first couple of minutes or so.

    If charismatic is synonym for "has particularely shapely womenly parts" then yes, you're spot on.

    While her shapely womanly parts are stonkingly awesome she's the "real deal" as the Americans like to say. I really, really rate her. Amy Adams too.

    You could see she was something special in Winters Bone. Similar to a certain booby lady in Martha marcy marlene

    I couldn't believe she was 23. Read it after seeing American Hustle, and it really just solidified how impressive she is as an actress.

    She was shit in First Class which was the first film I saw her in. Been impressed with her since, especially American Hustle.
