I know people like that. I think their justification is if you've survived this long without seeing it, why change now? It's great fuel for aggravating everyone you'll ever meet.

my girlfriend hasn't seen any star wars rofl

i've used the "i know" line a few times, for lulz, to great effect though... totally prepared for the massive slap when i finally convince her to watch the movies, get to empire strikes back, the scene when han says it and she realizes i stoles it off star fucking wars... i think it'd be worth it

fuck yea.

Les Diaboliques
Hitchcockian French thriller about two women (a wife and a mistress) plotting to murder a douchebag. Their intricate plan seems to work perfectly...until the body disappears and the husband starts haunting them. Pretty decent and classy, but shows its age.


Image
Quarantine 2: The Terminal
Bog standard flick about a rabies/zombie type virus that gets loose on a plane. Forgettable.

The Runaways - could have been much better if it didn't just concentrate on Cherie Currie and Joan Jett. The other three members coud have been played by cardboard cutouts and the manager, Kim Fowley was a more interesting character than the band members.

I'm Not There - arthouse-type Bob Dylan movie with various actors playing Dylan. I'm not a huge Dyaln fan but enjoyed the movie. Interesting seeing Cate Blanchett play him. She'd be perfect for Thom Yorke too if a Radiohead movie is ever made

The Runaways movie sucked but yeah Michael Shannon was great as Kim Fowley.

There's a good doco on the Runaways with all the band members except Joan Jett http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0216731/

I wanted to like this and while i enjoyed parts of it the film as a whole doesn't work. A lot of it comes off as a bad TV movie or some shitty TV psychic shoe. The actors who played the English twins were awful. Damon was actually quite good but not enough to save a badly paced clunky story. Ending was ultimate cheese too.

Great documentary, was completely riveted. A mostly non misty-eyed look at what US soldiers are enduring in Afghanistan. Makes you realize what you probably already know that it's in the end a futile exercise being there in the first place. Death Valley.

Yeah I fell asleep thru that one and never bothered going back to watching the end.

Finally. Purely for John Barrowman, I'm not normally a fan of Asylum/-type stuff.
Fell asleep on my desk for a bit but got to see all the hilarious blue-screen kill scenes. It eats a jet-ski!
There were a few easy but genuine scares. AH! nom nom nom etc.
Also, Barrowman apparently riffed this but they kept it:

LOAL! Oh, Barrowman!

It is an exact mix of Jaws and Piranha [well, Piranha came after but y'know].
I can't wait for Piranha 3DD

Just started, but I'm already in fits of laughter. Gran is fucking amazing. To be honest though I'm not surprised it's so funny, everything else he's done has been fantastic.


How are you guys rating this compared to Summer Heights High and We Can be Heroes? The only characters I can really get into are Daniel and Nathan, and Gran on occassion. It's funny, and I'll continue watching, just think the others are kind of lacking

Blood Creek - Fucking awful garbage from Joel Schumacher. Michael Fassbender can't save this dull, occultist horror. Kind of an interesting premise which proceeds to go nowhere, unleashing a barrage of horror cliches.

X-Men: First Class - Totally awesome. The best X-Men adaption so far, looking forward to where this rebooted franchise goes next.

Machete - What. The. Fuck. From a mind blowing trailer to literally one of the worst films I have ever seen. I know it's meant to be goofy and ironic, but I just found it cringey and dumb. Worth it for Lohan boob and alba side boob. almost. I think I'd rather watch Spy Kids.

Harry Brown - I can see how people compare it to Gran Torino, but I still thought it was great. It feels like the type of thing Garth Ennis would write. Superb acting, great pace, compelling.

2012 - I love Roland Emerick and this superb piece of disaster porn is no exception. Dumb to the point of actual contagious moronicism, breath taking in the magnitude of famous land marks destroyed...and Woody Harrelson...the only gripe I have is that it has more lulls than your usual R.E fare. I hope his next film keeps it's foot on the throttle a little more.

Quills - This was great! almost shed a tear for the ol' dirty marquis at the end. Had almost continuous lols whenever Bill from True Blood appeared.

The Interview - One of Hugo Weavings early films, this was a pretty boring attempt at British crime drama meets Usual Suspects plot twist type of scenario. Interesting premise, but most of the acting brings on cultural cringe and it goes for way too long. Could've been an interesting short film.
I'm not a cool guy anymore.

Elephant White - Thai bollocks directed by the guy who did Ong Bak and features an Aussie accented Kevin Bacon as nightclub owner/gun dealer Jimmy The Brit. The movie seems uncertain if it wants to mainly feature Bangkok, take on the issue of child prostitution, be an action movie or a supernatural thriller a la The Sixth Sense.

I liked how in Shark Attack 3 every shark killing was the same stock footage shot of the shark coming out of the water, just with different things/people/jetskis going into its mouth.

Night of the Lepus
Bones McCoy, Janet Leigh and others battle a plague of giant rabbits. This was the 70s, so the rabbits are done with real bunnies hopping around scale models, intercut with people screaming. Best bit is when a local cop goes to a drive-in theatre and rouses the patrons to help by shouting over his bullhorn, "Ladies and gentlemen, attention! There is a herd of killer rabbits headed this way and we desperately need your help!" Also the way that no-one ever, ever, EVER points out how fucking ridiculous it is to have giant bunnies running around dismembering people.

The Great Yokai War - Seen the beginning of this once before, great to see it all the way through. So weird to have Takashi Miike making films (presumably) aimed at kids. Holy shit Japan, what is up?

And how the shark's "voice" sounded like someone going ARRRRRRRRRR whenever it lurked? hilarious.

Night of the Lepus is inextricably linked with the Incredibly Strange Film Fest for my brain. I think it was on the flyer for 2002? fest which was when i first found out about it
