I'm eating prawn Balti at the moment, fookin prawns, man.

Also tried to watch two films recently, The Secret In Their Eyes but the subs were awful and had to fix them myself leaving not enough time to actually watch it, and Kurosawas Ran in HD, which the subs won't show on my TV, bah!

Nutmeg, District 9 was in most people's opinions (people who have good taste that is) the best movie of last year. Highly recommended.

District 9 just plan sucks. I tried to watch it two times and I couldn't make it! It was by a retarded 8 year old I bet.

We are the strange

A beautiful girl is banished to the haunted woods where she befriends a mysterious boy.  Meanwhile a duo of assassins attempt to destroy hideous monsters that threaten their city.  

Just about every form of nightmarish animation is thrown at you in this Claymation/CGI/Pixel Art tour-de force.  The film is told almost exclusively through visuals which often can get jarring and confusing.  Every image is jolting to the viewer.  Nothing is friendly in this harsh environment, save Blue the heroine and the innocent but nevertheless persistently creepy hero Emm.  All the while the orchestral mixed with 8-bit squarewave score highlights the highly video game influenced plot and visuals.  There is a lot to like in this movie and a lot to dislike.  You will probably go either one way or the other.  It's not a film that tries to win you over.  It is what it is so you'll either love it or hate it.

Not too bad.

The Limey
Steven Soderbergh film starring Terence Stamp as an angry father just released from prison out to avenge his estranged daughter who was mysteriously killed in L.A.
Stamp lays on the Cockney rhyming slang as the tough and not so tough Californians try to understand who the hell he is, what he's saying (like in the great scene with Bill Duke) and what the hell he's dong there beating everyone up.
Great character development and the quick cuts keep the pace and action going.

Grown Ups

I really love Adam Sandler but I think this film is not as good as the other films that he made. Still it is good.

Black Dynamite in Cinematron-vision, this time...
Ok I saw this a while ago, but it just hit one small cinema here now so I dragged my friends to see it on the big screen along with only about 2 dozen other people, so I guess it still ain't super mainstream.
But while the fools in other cinemas went to see whatever shit's out this weekend (Another Resident Evil film and Going The Distance, blargh!) and had fleeting fun, we lol'd ourselves in lasting fun!
And as BD says, "Your knowledge of scientific biological transmogrification is only outmatched by your zest for kung-fu treachery!"
I think that's a lesson we can all learn today...

A Flash Of Genius

I really liked this film.  It's about a small town college professor, who creates an intermittent windshield wiper.  He thinks he's hit the jackpot, as the American Automakers embrace his idea.  Unfortunately for him, they basically steal his idea & shun him.  The film is about his fight to have the courts recognize his design & get justice, regardless of the cost to him or his family.  Greg Kinnear is dead on as the main character who won't compromise his integrity & takes on the auto industry. 

8.5/10

I have just completed an online mid-semester test for one of my units so now I feel like I have earned going to see Despicable Me this afternoon. I shall report back later with my thoughts!

Like right now.

Despicable Me
This was quite fun to watch. People seem to have mixed reviews about it but I quite enjoyed it. I was kind of impressed by how much I could barely tell it was Russell Brand and Jason Segel's voices in there. And the little girls were great. I had a little bit of trouble seeing how this villain could be so..villainous...and suddenly cared about the girls though, considering he had encountered perfectly cute things before and yet didn't care. But that's how these stories are meant to go, I guess.
Memorable moment:
"He's funny."
"But scary."
"Like Santa!"

I hate Adam Sandler, but Funny People, though over-fucking-long, gave him an opportunity to delve into a character with some actual substance. I enjoyed him in that movie.

Anyway...

Moulin Rouge

Watched this last night with my rugby team (rugby and Baz Luhrmann movies are actually quite similar), and I actually enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. Nicole Kidman was great (whereas usually I just plain don't like her), Ewan McGregor was pretty, and the movie itself was just fun. And, I guess, kinda melodramatic and tragic and such.

El Secreto de Sus Ojos (The Secret In Their Eyes)
Argentine film that won an Oscar last year, about a retired federal justice agent who recalls the story of a rape and murder of a beautiful young woman and how it became entangled in his life.
Told in flashback to slowly reveal the details of the past of the case, and the present as not all things were resolved.
Great drama/thriller.

The Ice Harvest
Noir-ish dark comedy caper set in windy, rainy Wichita Falls.
John Cusack plays a mob lawyer who robs $2 million from his gangster boss with another gangster, Billy Bob Thornton, and plan to leave town, but the boss finds out and sends a hitman.
Oliver Platt however steals the show with tomfoolery as his drunk friend, and Connie Nielson plays a femme fatale love interest but she's not very interesting.
It's an ok film with a few good parts but not as good as Grosse Pointe Blank for example, better Cusack film.

Superman Batman: Apocalypse
Kevin Conroy, Tim Daly, Bruce Timm and Jeph Loeb are all names associated with DC animated movies, but this time joined by Summer Glau as Kara (aka Supergirl), who arrives on Earth and then gets kidnapped by Darkseid.

I've never heard of Darkseid before, he seems to have weird life for a bad guy, he lives on a exploding volcano planet, with giant robo dogs, lots of scantily clad ninja girls and an old guy called "Granny"... hmpf
And why does he need those girls anyway if he can match Superman in a fight? Seems weird!

Anyway, good animated superhero movie.

Crap, I still haven't finished watching that laff


Mama Mia!
I don't know when I suddenly became middle-aged, but I watched my mum's copy of this alone and by choice on the weekend and proceeded to download the soundtrack and listened to it for a couple of days afterwards.

Satisfaction level: I feel dirty

Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls
I hadn't seen this in years. I can't tell whether I legitimately enjoyed the movie, or I legitimately enjoyed the nostalgic value of it. "Guano bowls: collect the whole set!" Ah, Jimothy. Things did seem a little over the top, and his whole speech at the end where he lawyered the bad guy reminded me of Liar, Liar. Obviously he stole that from himself for Liar, Liar a few years later. I still haven't seen Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, because I kept meaning to hire it from the video shop when we used to go there, but it wasn't ever there, and then I forgot. The End.

Satisfaction level: I want to watch more movies I forgot existed.

The first I'd heard of Darkseid was in the episode animated Superman episode "Apokolips...Now!"  It was a pretty good one.  It also featured openly lesbian characters, which was unusual.  In a later episode, Supes goes to Apokolips and beats the omega beams out of Darkseid.  When Superman tells the Apokoliptians they do not have to serve Darkseid any more, they willingly take Darkseid back, pissing Superman off.


I don't know what's going on here, but there's some sort of chicanery afoot.

I really thought the english dub of Ponyo was going to suck to the fact that Noah Cyrus and Frankie Jonas was in it (Disney, go fig), but I was entertained through out the whole thing! Heck, i'm going to take it back to Blockbuster and BUY it!

No, it's not a porno with a lazy title guy, it's a campy Vampire Rock Comedy!
Part This Is Spinal Tap, part Dracula, written, directed by and starring Rob Stefaniuk, Jessica Paré, Malcolm McDowell and featuring Dave Foley, Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, Moby and even Ezri Dax from DS9 has a small part.
About a crappy rock band traveling across North America trying to make it big, while the bassist (the sexy Jessica Paré) gets turned by a vampire causing trouble for the rest of the band.
The roadie guy who turns into a kinda Renfield character is hilarious. big grin

Very enjoyable film, lots of fun!
