    It's also recognized as such in the OED, before a stretch to that escape hatch is cried out for.

    This new meaning of trope is really throwing off all those people who use the old meaning with regularity.

    I'm just watching Raiders of the Lost Ark for the first time in quite a while...

    Indy is a paedo. I hadn't noticed this previously. I think I've been particularly naive. Anybody else not noticed this before, or is it just me.

    :-(

    How is he a paedo? I don't remember him doing anything untoward with Short Round anyway...

    He's a rapist in Blade runner :-)

    12 Years a Slave

    While not quite the second coming I'd heard this was still a fine watch. It's a tragic and interesting story that is well told, although it does drag on a bit. It's one of those films that makes you despair for humanity, but also includes moments that restores that balance that out a bit. Some of the scenes are quite brutal, but the main theme is one of injustice and holding on. Well worth a watch.

    8/10

    The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty 63/100

    Bit of a curates egg this film. You have to admire it's attempt to be a bit different but that doesn't let it off the hook for some of it's shortcomings. I've always liked Ben Stiller more than I know I should and his performance here is decent if not exactly nuanced. The supporting cast are decidedly average and the comedy baddy boss blurs the lines between the real and fantasy aspects of the film and not in a good way.

    Directorially it's pretty clunky and the attempts at creative shots just seem a bit forced. Incidentally I had no idea he directed Reality Bites, he's been that side of the camera long enough to do a better job.

    Still the offbeat story makes it worth a watch and there are a few good moments.

    When he talks to Marion she mentions she was young when they first hooked up (think the line is "I was a child!"). The script states she's supposed to be 25 then, and that it was 10 years ago when they banged.

    Oh, right. Were ages ever mentioned in the film? I always thought she just meant she was young (not that young admittedly...).

    Edge of Tomorrow

    Good idea, well executed. A big thing told through the characters, like all the best blockbusters. And i like Blunt. Good entertainment for 90 minutes.

    The worlds end - 4/10 - It's not funny enough for a comedy and it's far too shit to make it on it's sci-fi side of the story. It got particularly bad when they made it to the worlds end. That whole reveal part in the base under the worlds end was woeful.

    The editing did remind me of Spaced in parts. Err that's it for good stuff.

    Dallas Buyers Club
    Really enjoyed, I thought Rayon was excellent, had no idea Jared Leto also got an Oscar, well deserved. Good film and MM/Christian Bale played the part very well.

    The Wolf of Wall Street
    Excellent, pure Scorsese. Dicaprio excellent as he tends to be in almost everything, the Metamorphosis into Nickolson/Welles is coming along nicely. I would say I think he should have got the best actor Oscar...maybe ? he is well overdue at any rate. I can only assume that Jonah Hill had those teeth done for the film ?
    I have this book on my Kindle, need to read it.
    Loved it.

    Only one film left to see of the "holy Trinity" now.

    Stone me, What a life!

    I think that would have read just as well without her constantly reminded us she was abused.
    Classic Jablonski.

    Her blog is about the sexual abuse trope, not Indiana Jones.

    I think the key words in that sentence aren't 'Indiana Jones'. 'Her blog' and 'sexual abuse', probably are.

    Carrie (remake) 2/10

    Its shit, pointless remake with slight update in terms of camera phones etc but its just lazy. chloe moretz is mis-cast as carrie as she is not suited as a plain jane outsider.

    Yeah, she was absolutely terrible in the role, didn't fit at all.
    Oh no her hair is a bit straggly, and her clothes are a tad out of fashion, FUCKING DOOOOG!!

    The Kings of Summer. 8/10. Lovely coming of age film about 2 (soon to be 3) friends struggling to cope with their parents. Some great moments and the 3rd friend steals many scenes.

    Maleficent 7/10

    Much better than I was expecting, the plot is typical Disney fluff, but Angelina Jolie is fantastic. The special effects are also great, the best high fantasy i've seen in ages, the blend between the CG and real footage was spot on.

    The Searchers - 9/10

    It's taken me a long time to come round to appreciating this - the whole Western genre in general to be honest. Probably the 4th time I've seen it, but I've never really picked up on the character nuances before - could say the scenery gets in the way. Ethan's relationship with his brother's wife, Martin and Laurie's unspoken assumptions, Clayton's reluctant respect for Ethan's way of getting a job done, and the final shot in the doorway of John Wayne is one of great sadness of a life no longer with purpose.
