    Silver Linings Playbook 6/10

    I don't understand the acclaim for what turns out to be a fairly generic rom-com. The acting is unremarkable, and if anything Lawrence is badly miscast; far too young for her character.

    I thought the movie actually missed probably its strongest message, that a couple with diagnosed mental health issues turn out to be relatively sane in comparison with their family and friends.
    How did it miss its own message?

    Lawrence's character is supposed to be a very young widow. I'm sure Cooper even mentions something about the age difference in the movie.

    I really enjoyed Silver Linings for the fact it wasn't really a generic rom-com. Conversely my missus didn't enjoy it for the same reason.

    I thought Cooper and DeNiro were both terrific.

    Only gripe is Tarantino's cameo. Why he insists on appearing on screen I'll never know.

    Oh come on, that's part of the fun. One expects it. :D
    Nah, bit too self indulgent if you ask me.

    Don't mind him in From Dusk Till Dawn though.

    He is actually pretty good in From Dusk Till Dawn I thought. I don't mind him in Plup Fiction either but I do think he should stop the cameo's now.

    Human Centipede (UK Netflix)

    Just watched this and yeah it's fucked up. However, the ending piqued my interest what happens to the girl? and upon reading the blurb for the second it sounds a semi-interesting concept, ie: when the credits roll it pans back to see a guy watching the movie on a DVD player.

    Third planned as well, I'm intrigued to see where they take it.

    On holiday, so actually managed to watch a couple of films yesterday. Watching one in the afternoon without kids was a luxury! Shame team chosen films weren't brilliant and but there you go:

    Crazy, Stupid, Love - 6/10. Not my usual genre, and it wasn't terrible, just not as good as it could have been. Carrel is pretty good and I like Emma Stone but it all seemed to be built around one farcical scene at the end.

    The Crazies - 7/10. I was expecting a black comedy more than a straight up horror, but it was pretty decent. Olyphant is good as always, there were plot holes everywhere but for convenience mostly. Worth a watch imo.

    Walk The Line

    Really enjoyed this. Strong performances (including the signing) and a believable central relationship; unusual that you are effectively siding with an adulterous relationship.

    Not a revolutionary biopic by any stretch of the imagination, but still well recommended.

    Awful movie only saved by brief scenes of a younger Sharon Stone in blue knickers. I liked how it showed gangsters and stuff, doing stuff and things. It was a brilliant piece of shit or a shitty piece of brilliance. I cant decide which so its a 10 for me.
    Best review ever.

    Let's raise the stakes; Casino is better than Goodfellas.

    But he said she was "younger" and that cannot be denied. It's how time works and that.

    Killer Joe- 5/10

    Disappointed with this, it was a bit shit really.

    Well damn, looks like the king of this thread is no more. :(

    Barring a couple of blind spots (well, Fight Club, basically), the guy was a pretty fine critic.

    Yep, RIP. I can't think of a critic I've enjoyed reading more.

    Room 237.

    I think this defies a score about as much as it (frequently) defies logic. It's a documentary on Kubrick's The Shining, and it purports to not only discuss the symbolism of the film - which would have been plenty, thanks - but also makes some fairly wild/interesting claims about what the film is actually about - and how Kubrick intended it to be watched.

    The problem is, some of the theories are so ridiculous that it pisses on the more interesting stuff. That, and the theorists are so absolutely full of their own self worth that it cripples your desire to listen to anything they ultimately have to say. I've always been mesmerised by the film, but many of the statements these muppets come out with are ridiculous, and there's a mocking tone to it that really feels like it's talking down to the audience; an element of "I can't believe everyone didn't spot this."

    Maybe if I'd smoked what you had, I might have realised that the poster of the man on skis, going down a snowy mountain and holding a ski-pole, was actually a minotaur too. Hmmm. And as for the revelation that you can see Kubrick's face super-imposed on the clouds in the opening shot(they even pause the movie but don't, unhelpfully, point out the area of sky I'm supposed to be squinting at), yeah... I think you're full of shit on this one, too.

    Frustrating, full of itself, but occasionally intriguing.

    Dredd - Pretty darn fun. Confining the movie to one location really gave the film a focus. Felt a bit 80's but in a good way. 90mins well spent.
