Empire of the Sun

Brilliant. I forgot how emotional some of the scenes are.

The Midnight Meat Train

I enjoyed it, it looks good, has some terrific gore and does have a similar atmosphere to Candyman, but is not as good in my opinion. Like Candyman I've not read the story so I don't know what has been added or removed but I did feel the whole photographer uncovering a mystery was the weakest part of the film and thus affected the narrative of the film.


It's been a very long time since I read the story, but it does, as I recall, remain pretty loyal to the original (with the obligatory move of location from UK to USA)

There was one point in the film that I still don't really understand however, what were the things growing out of Jones' chest?


The warts? Nope, not a clue here either.

Dance Of The Dead - A group of high-school misfits set off to save the day as zombies invade the high school prom.

Fantabulous performances and a very good script make this firmly tounge in cheek comedy a bit of a must see. You may have to ignore several Shaun Of The Dead and a few Dead Rising blatant rip offs though.

5/5.


I have heard nothing but good things about this. Must check it out.

16 Blocks
Considering this stars Bruce Willis and Mos Def and is directed by Richard Donner, I can't understand why I never saw it sooner. Pretty nifty little thriller.

This weekends movies.

Fantasia - Beautiful. Not seen this in years. Some absolutely stunning animation in this, and such a wonderful idea. The kind of film that would never be made today, really.

The Thing - You've gotta be fucking kidding me... Great stuff. One of those films I always cite for demonstrating how physical effects are better than CGI. The bit where the head is dragging itself along by reeling in its tongue is just incredible.

Star Wars - Stuck this on, but we weren't really watching it. Seen it so many times.

Iron Man - Brilliant film, easily one of this years best. I love it.

The Empire Strikes Back - My opinion on Jedi being the best is slowly starting to change to be more like the popular view of Empire being best. Brilliant.

Also watched all of Spaced again, but that's not for here.

That goes for the rest of y'all now.

16 Blocks Decent film with a nice ending. Mos Def was really good in it as well and I'm fast becoming a fan of his films.

Funny Games US This was a weird one in which I felt pretty strange afterwards. I found it unnerving how I seemed to sympathise more with the killers rather than the family and found myself annoyed at the captives for being rubbish and missing the captors when they weren't on screen. I'm not sure if thats the purpose of the film or whether I'm actually a bit wrong in the head but I liked the film anyway?

I watched Forrest Gump yesterday at the hospital (my Mom was sleeping). I realized that while it's a good movie, it can put you even more asleep when you're feeling tired from being in the hospital in the first place..

Ahh, I'm so glad that it's not just me who gets freakishly tired in hopsitals. I went to visit a friend a couple of months back and didn't dare sit down in case I started nodding off and seemed rude.

Forrest Gump is so good. smile.gif

Tropic Thunder - Not as good as people say. By no means bad, but not the classic some people make it out as. Most of the best lines came from Downy Jr (not the blacked-up lines, the serious actor stuff).

The trailers at the start were better than the film itself.

Aw, Forrest Gump always reminds me of Canada, because I was on my first trip there when I saw it. happy.gif
