    American Hustle

    Holy shit this guy wishes he was was Scorsese. Even allowing for the possibility that it's an "homage" as opposed to a straight up rip-off, it's a bit ridiculous how far it goes. Every shot, every line, every song screams Scorsese. It's one of the most derivative things I've ever seen.

    That aside, I still enjoyed it, although slightly despite myself at times. It's irritatingly enjoyable like a Take That song.

    7/10
    I enjoyed it for what it was, but the end is pretty unforgivable.
    Like they run out of money, or the battery was running out so they quickly tied it all up.

    To Live and Die In L.A. 4/10

    Was really looking forward to this and I ended up turning it off halfway through. Dafoe is very disappointing as the villain of the piece, he has no presence about him. The main character is a laughably big 80's arrogant moron. His new partner is anonymous. His former partner is 3 days from retirement. The soundtrack takes away from the movie, rather than adding to the scenes. Just a mess really.
    Shame you turned it off. Does something quite brave story-wise in the last third.
    Haven't seen in in what must be a decade but I recall it being very good, with that 'brave' thing being completely unexpected. I vaguely recall thinking "you can't do that! What do you do now?!"

    Another one to try from the same period: Year of the Dragon. I thought Mickey Rourke was the bollocks at the time, which probably made it a lot better than it really was. Oh who cares. Young Mickey Rourke was cool. Rumblefish was super cool.

    If he hadn't gone off the rails and tried to become a boxer, I think he would have been the actor of his generation.
    He is phenomenal in films of that period - Angel Heart, Barfly, and the Coppola's

    Very late to the conversation but the wrestler is phenomenal. One of my favourite films and I hate wrestling.

    Barton Fink.

    First time i've seen this. I don't know where to start. Or how to rate it. i enjoyed it a lot, but not sure entirely where i meant to stand. It takes you on a pretty surreal journey, part cyincal look at hollywood but then part cynical look at prentious lefty writers, part surreal french hotel drama, part hotel horror, theres so much going on, for what is a relatively simple set up of a guy with writers block.

    Look forward to watching it again. The script is great, very funny.

    Or read the novel the film is based on, the orginial ending is different to both movie endings.

    Great film. One I can watch over and over and not get tired of it. A lot of films these days are one and done. Shame about the Coen's last couple of movies, though. They seem to be on a real downward spiral these days.

    Son of Rambow is great. Was disappointed to see the BBC shunt it to 11.50pm on a Sunday night or whatever. It's better than that. Very sweet, typically British film.

    Never seen Son Of Rambow.

    Modern British films have been so consistently shit, that I tend not to a chance on too many.
    Which means I'm sadly missing out on some gems no doubt

    Try and watch Rambo III as well, underrated with a brilliant end scene/song.

    You're missing out on a lot of good films :) British film good/bad ratio is probably no worse than any other really.

    As for son of rambow, yeah liked it a lot. Found it fun to watch, sort of took me back to my own childhood where you just plan to do stuff with your mates and that takes over your life for weeks at a time.

    Jack Ryan is such a woeful film.

    Planning on working through all the Rambos.

    Chris Pine films work better when he's running full pelt, ideally with a running buddy with him.

    Should team up with Tom Cruise and have loads of shots of them running like mad men.

    I was told by a running instructor that the reason Tom Cruise always runs in his films is because he has absolutely perfect form. Apparently he completely nails the proper way to run and it looks good on film.

    Watched The Passion again after ages. Jesus. If I were religious, I'd be pretty angry at how the story is abused for creating some cartoonish whacko splatter horror movie. Earlier in the movie, it was rather embarrassment, later I just laughed at how ludicrous it is.

    It's a bad movie, but I'll give it 5/10 for comedic value. And for providing an insight into certain people's fucked up minds.

    Shame you turned it off. Does something quite brave story-wise in the last third.
    Read up on it on wiki afterwards to see what I was missing. It is brave but I couldn't connect to any of the characters so I think it wouldn't have affected me. I did manage to switch off before the car chase though. Annoyed about that, it is Friedkin after all!

    The Big Lebowski - 8/10

    First time I have ever seen it and I enjoyed it. Very funny, especially the scene with the ashes and good performances all round.

    Surprised to see Tara Reid was in it even if it was a minor roll.
