There's loads of great moments and lines in the film that make knowing the end far less of an issue. Definitely check it out.

Blimey! You've never seen it before?

Fantastic film. Two very handsome, charismatic leads, being charming rogues, with some lovely things to say about passing eras.

Both are great, but I think I prefer The Sting.

Oh you'll enjoy The Sting. One of my favourite films, it's a gem.


Keep getting sidetracked away from watching The Sting, but I'm going to try and catch it this weekend due to all the love it's getting here. The Newman/Redford dynamic is something else - they are pretty perfect together.

Prometheus - It was enjoyable, of course it wasn't as good as Alien. Is the implication that the ship from Alien is Liz and David's? Perhaps he didn't want to go to the Engineer's homeworld, and instead went to LV-426? Or are the two films completely unrelated?.

John Carter

I loved it just because I loved the story when I read it as a child, but by god it was easy to see the studio's interfering fingerprints all over this. Such a shame it was a flop, so hopefully it'll be a cult hit on DVD.

Eyes Wide Shut again.

It's an incredible film but I can't bring myself to agree with those who insist it's really Kubrick's best film. It had the potential to be, and I'd go so far to agree that subtextually it's his best and the quintessential Kubrick, but there does seem like there is something lacking in the primary narrative, although this is an accusation you could throw at what is my favourite film of his, and one of my all time favourite films, 2001*. Where 2001 gets away it is through the spectacular visuals and sheer audacity of the screenpaly (both textually and subtextually), whereas here it's filled with stark honesty and bourgeois minutia. Another factor maybe due to the purposefully subdued, traditionally masculine driving force usually taken up by the protagonist is so disconcerting to the viewer that it makes it hard to surrender to, especially without any moments that really hit you in the solar plexus. Then again, maybe it's all just too subtle for an uncultured swine like me.

I'd put this in the Kubrick second tier with A Clockwork Orange and Full Metal Jacket, below 2001, Barry Lyndon and The Shining, and above Paths of Glory, Lolita and Dr Strangelove. Although this is all like ranking the quality of orgasms, Kubrick deserves all the worship he gets.

*Funnily enough, this feels almost like a sister film to 2001, (1999: A Manhattan Odyssey)

I'm surprised you put Dr Strangelove in the third division of Kubrick films. I think it's wonderful.

I rather enjoyed that. The animation and artwork was gorgeous.

Kind of like I said, it's like comparing the quality of diamonds, it's just I think he entered a completely different realm from 2001 onwards where his films go from being just (excellent) films to being genuine works of art.

I spent most of the day reading this guy's shot by shot analysis of Eyes Wide Shut. I'm still only up to part 6 and feel like I've hardly seen the film there's so much going, no wonder Kubrick was working on it for so long.

Snow White and the Huntsman

Good bits: Good action scenes and special effects, amazing scenery porn, nice score (and, of course, Florence + the Machine's song), some genuinely funny moments, and I quite liked the Huntsman and the dwarves. Surprisingly, K-Stew was less shit than I expected. Still not good, but less shit.

Bad bits: Snow White was one hell of a Mary Sue, some of the dialogue was a bit iffy, there were annoying plot holes, and I couldn't figure out where K-Stew was getting her supply of make-up from or who'd been plucking her eyebrows and cutting her hair for her while she was locked away in the tower...

So-bad-they-were-good bits: Charlize Theron's hilaribad acting. I got the giggles something terrible at one point and got an evil glare from an emo in front of me.

Headhunters
Nordic thriller about an art thief who has a bad day that gets worse and worse. A little bit gory, a little bit comical, a whole lot of brilliant.

Personally I don't think he has been shit in anything I've seen her in (though she has been in some shit films - namely the Twilight ones). She rather good in Adventureland and The Runaways.

Sorry, she's a lady.

I'm now going through her analysis of Clockwork Orange.
