Yup, his favourite is pretending to be Dudley Moore pretending to be a nun in the Leaping Nuns of Norwich sketch. I'm partial to Bo Dudley myself.

The Limits of Control - I think I officially hate Jim Jarmusch. Which is weird, as Dead Man is one of my favourite films. The Limits of Control makes use of homage to relatively decent effect, but similarly to Ghost Dog it has a stone wall for a main character, who drifts apathetically through the events of a film that tries to be fun, but is ultimately pretty dull. There are moments of brilliance, like there are in Ghost Dog and Coffee and Cigarettes, but it fails yet again to live up to Dead Man. The soundtrack by Boris is brilliant.

Five Obstructions - Lars von Trier forces his favourite director to remake his seminal short of 1967 five times, with increasingly constricting rules each time, in the hope of revealing something of the directors humanity umder his calm, detached exterior. Begs some interesting questions about creativity, and is a great doco, but its best attribute is simply the fact that it is ultimately a love letter from an adoring fan.

Yeah, totally. It pretty much said all it was going to say in the first 30 minutes. Looked great, though, and Hardy was incredible. But hard not to be disappointed.


Image
Rush
Based on the real life rivalry between two Formula One drivers - the cavalier and charismatic James Hunt and the antisocial, calculating Niki Lauda. Actually a really interesting film about broken personalities and how having an unbalance in any way is ultimately damaging to yourself, as Hunt and Lauda take increasing risks to beat each other during the 1976 season.

Even if you know the real events, it doesn't actually spoil things. If anything, knowing the tragedies to come only build the sense of dread. And Daniel Bruhl's performance as Lauda is amazing - not only a very good impression, he also shapes the character in a really careful way as the story unfolds.


Image
Byzantium
Gemma Arterton and Saorsie Ronan are vampires on the run. Already centuries old, they live a nomadic life until, when staying at a desolate motel called Byzantium, Ronan finds a bond with sickly student Caleb Landry Jones and decides, at last, she can share her story.

Solid flick with some neat twists on the vampire mythos. It maybe never quite kicks into high gear, but it has style to burn and lots of solid British character actors, plus Arterton looks amazing as always. Pretty good flick.

65 minutes of directionless American Pie high school drivel followed by 10 minutes of actual plot and character emotion. Highlight was a depressingly amazing performance from Chris Pratt from Parks & Rec. Also found it weird seeing beefcake Channing Tatum acting on-screen in a relationship with his IRL wife, it's like seeing Will Smith in movies with his kid that nobody cares about

Out of all the stuff I've watched lately this probably stand out the most:

Autobiographical film about Ari Folman uncovering lost memories of his time serving in the Israeli army during the 1982 Lebanon War. It's unlike anything else I've seen, quite memorable.

So good. Easily trumped Toy Story for me. Quite a strong anti-corporate sentiment as well for basically an ad for toys.

Finally watched Pacific Rim, it was great - terrible acting, but tons of fun. Actually, a lot of things about it were terrible, but that's kind of a testament to how great it was. The Wolverine was pretty bad. Like...it was really, really bad. Just another paint by numbers Marvel film. I like that he was in Japan and that they used that storyline, but that was about it.

Gallipoli - Doing an Australian film history paper, thought this was going to suck. Actually pretty good. Looking forward to seeing Peter Weir's Picnic at Hanging Rock now.

5.4 on IMDB. remake. Someone give a decent review/synopsis of how worthwhile it would be.

I spent my Saturday afternoon getting absolutely hammered while watching Frozen then Corpse Bride then Jumanji then some shitty movie about porn stars having shitty lives.
Also rewatching Always Sunny In Philadelphia still. Seinfeld for the new generation.

Spike Lee's remake of Oldboy was a significant improvement over the plodding, lazily paced mess that was Chan-wook Park's obscenely overrated original. It still wasn't great, but it was probably about as good as the original film's ridiculously convoluted (and psychologically inaccurate) premise would allow. Was great to see the shitty framed narrative and retarded camera tricks (a hallmark of Park's overblown, self-indulgent directing style) get chopped off entirely, too. Definitely worth your time.

Enjoyed this quite a bit despite going on a little too long and a fairly dissatisfying ending. Some real Skynet shit in this flick though. Fucking idiot humans should've pulled the plug on all the OSs well early. If I made this film I would've just wrapped it all up nicely with a nuclear holocaust two-thirds in.

I thought that was pretty bullshit, tbh. Amy Adams was good, and so was whatsit from Parks, but I thought that was the shittest OS ever, and I wouldn't want to use it, let alone fuck it. Terrifying vision of the porn-stached near future! Or some shit.

Really enjoyed this.

Snowpiercer is a South Korean science fiction action film based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob & Benjamin Legrand and Jean-Marc Rochette.

The film is set in a future where a runaway experiment to stop global warming has caused an ice age that killed nearly all life on Earth. The only survivors are the inhabitants of the 'Snowpiercer', a massive train that travels around the planet and is powered by a perpetual-motion engine. Over time a class system evolves on the train, with the elites inhabiting the front of the train and poor inhabiting the back of the train. Tired of their poor living conditions, the riders in the back revolt, attempting to seize control of the engine, which the elites in the front consider sacred.
