Old Boy

Korean film thats probably been on everyday on Film 4. I say its a must see film, it has everything you need in a guys movie, action, violence, gore, sex, comedy etc. Film is about a Korean guy who gets kidnapped and is locked up for 15 years without knowing why or who did it. While he is locked up he is only given a TV and witnesses the news that his wife has been killed and he is the prime suspect. He is eventually released and he has 1 thing on his mind, revenge. His kidnapper gives him 5 days to work out why he locked him up.

The film is pretty sick at times, im onvinced the whole eating the octopus alive thing is real, but the main sticking point about this film is the twist. You will not find a bigger twist in a movie, yes its better than Usual suspects, Shawshank, Identity etc.

It may still be on film 4 tonight, so try and watch it!!

8/10

Watched the Crazies over the weekend. Mildly entertaining but generally a very very poor effort to copy 28 Days Later.

4/10

I just assumed you only said you didnt like it because everyone else said they liked it, im sure if everyone said they hated it you would say it was the best thing since Battlefield Earth ok

Man on Fire - 2004

The film is based on a novel by A.J. Quinnell, and is actually a remake of a 1987 version. Based in Mexico City, the story develops at a nice pace and shows you a very realistic depiction of the kidnap 'trade' in Mexico. Denzel Washington stars as 'John W. Creasy', a hired gun for a rich Mexican family. The daughter is played BRILLIANTLY by Dakota Fanning (look her up), and the movie brought out much emotion from me for the 2 hours and 20 minutes it runs for. I won't give too much away, but if you haven't seen this film I'd highly-recommend it. The filming is slick and smart and the acting is as good as it gets.

I'll add that I watched this film in Blu-ray, but it doesn't gain any extra marks for that. As nice as it looks, it'd still be worth the marks I'll give it if it was a crappy VHS copy.

I gave it an 8/10 on IMDb, but that's only because I didn't want to give it a 9 and you can't give half marks on there (which needs to be changed)...

8.5/10 - Super film.

I also thought Man On fire was pretty good, but everyone else tells me it's not and, if I'm honest, I'm a sucker for anything with Denzel so I thought they might be right.

Cemetery Junction 2010
Gervais/Merchant vehicle, but was pleasantly surprised that they never monopolised the film, only bit parts. Started slow and thought I wasn't going to like it, but it kinda grew on me as the story developed a bit.

Talking about a queer in it I liked the line "He's a bit of a 'shifty butcher' - likes his meat delivered at the back door!

A few giggles give it 5.5

I like most of DW's stuff, there've been a few stinkers, but not many. I'm glad I bought Man on Fire on Blu-ray, it's definitely something that'll stay in my collection and most definitely worth the £7.99 I paid for it.

Yeah, they've been mentioned.

Toy Story 3 was absolutely fantastic, Inception was pretty good in my opinion. Smile

Haven't seen Inception yet, but not looking forward to it as much as I was at first. I've heard some fairly lukewarm reviews recently.

I'll wait for Toy Story to come out on Blu-ray.

The same reason you have Blu-ray computer games? If anything, animations look better than real-life movies in Blu-ray.

The Ghost Writer (2010)

Political drama/thriller written by polish film director/part time paedo Roman Polanski, starring Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan and Kim Cattrall.

Hard to review, really, as its storyline is pretty in-depth and it's hard to reveal much about it without giving it away completely, but it kept me watching until the end and I liked the ending (which seems more and more rare these days). No really amazing performances by anyone, but very well-written and nicely shot.

I fell asleep 2/3 of the way through last night, but through exhaustion, not boredom. It was the main thing I was looking forward to getting home for at work today. Well, that and the big turd I'd been brewing since 2pm. Very Happy
