    Sucker Punch. Loads of fit birds in skimpy gear, main character is traumatized, they are all in a mental home trying to escape, using a fantasy world to find clues, good effects, watchable.

    Network. I'd been meaning to watch this for years. It was absolutely fantastic! Peter Finch - posthumous Oscar - was outstanding. As relevant today as when it was made. If you've not seen it you ought to.

    Network Synopsis



    5/5

    More relevant today than the Seventies (IMO).
    Great film; as per KK, a must see.

    Car Wash. Yes really! My oh my...those large lapels, bell bottom trousers, hot pants, kipper ties and the wonderful hair style. And Antonio Fargas (Starksy and Hutch) as a transvestite cleaner. Better then t.v. anyday.

    Watched The Human Centipede (First Sequence) last night, well....

    ....that was hmm, well, errr a bit "off"

    Basic premise: A german doctor that specialises in seperating siamese twins fantasises about trying the reverse. After trying, and failing, to conjoin 3 dogs he abducts 3 tourists and has another pop at it. Why is it called the Human Centipede? That would be because they are joined mouth to arse.

    Apparently there is a sequel, it isn't on my "to watch" list.

    South park did a parody of the human centipede focussed on Apple's terms and conditions



    Tonight: Syriana. George Clooney, Matt Daman and half of Kuwait. I think Mark Strong is in it too. Anyway, fresh on the feed of four lions, I was eager to see more people blowing stuff up. I'll not ruin it for everyone, so here is a spoiler:

    The Five Day War. You know, the one between the Georgians and the Russians. With Andy Garcia and Val Kilmer - now really fat - you'd think it would be okay but alas no.

    Ruined by bringing in some false romance. Georgian local woman who studied in New York and speaks fluent English but her own language is so poor they have to film her from the back so you can't tell she's being voiced over. And then there's your typical American, embedded, female photo-journalist who jumps about like a monkey with a bad dose of epilepsy. Yep, we know you are taking a still but it's not necessary to adopt the shitting on the floor squat position. Did I mention the main character talking to a ten year old in the church? He speaks to her in English and she nods. Bright kids in Georgia. Lastly, the burning apartment block shows cgi flames from some of the windows. Unfortunately the burning flames are identical in each window!

    Pity, what had the potential of being a good film about a forgotten war was ruined by the above and too many characters having a name ending in 'vili'.

    More positive comments are here.

    I Am Number 4 - boring Twiligtesque teen angst sci-fi twaddle. 3/10
    The Warrior's Way - bizarre mix of martial arts swordfight and Western, thoroughly enjoyed it all the way through. 8/10
    Paul - nowhere near as funny as it's made out to be 5/10

    If anyone is looking for a 'So bad, it's actually pretty good' action/kung fu movie, I'd like to reccomend Ninja Assassin:


    It's shit, but is an enjoyable couple of hours - lots of fighting, explosions etc.

    Last few nights I have watched:

    The Lives of Others. Great film. Watch it if you get the chance.

    The Inbetweeners, series 1-3 (in readiness for seeing the filum at some point).

    Moulin Rouge. Gremlinette is into it at the moment and I have probably sat through it ten times in the last few weeks. I got my own bak though: I've bought her the soundtrack for her upcoming birthday. Hehehehe.....Wait. Hang on, That means I'll have to listen to it ad infinitum.

    One of the best ever made. I felt quite sad when Ulrich Mühe died just before receiving a much earned award. Too young to go.

    Kill Bill 1&2 I thought I liked Tarantino but I'm not so sure now. One was okay in a sort of pastiche kind of way but two reminded me of Death Proof with all the rambling discourses and Carradine's pedestrian monologue. Tarantino gets carried away with his own invective. Although an entirely different thriller, Tom Tykwer's Heaven is a masterpiece in editing and paired down dialogue yet manages to move the film along at a good pace compared with Tarantino's jerks and bumps.

    I'm convinced that the Kung Fu sword sequence is a direct lift from the Matrix Trilogy with the multiple Mr. Smith fight scene or vice versa. Not surprising given it was the same fight organiser.

    Red, White and Blue.. lo budget revenge shocker al la dead mans' shoes.

    Cold Fish.. Japanese cod philosophical whacky shocker.

    Inside Job, docu about the banking crisis / global downturn (narrated by Jason Bourne) ..excellent and a must see, no political agenda either, it was clear what they did (and are still doing) quite a depressing watch but well worth it if.. like me, you dun understand the money news and that.

    Troll Hunter. Charming.. really.

    I must say I'm looking forward to Drive, 80s genre LA noire. nice...
