the spaceships are now rubbish


I dunno, there are some cool designs in the new films. I really like the Trade Federation's ships - the big ring-shaped motherships, with all their H-shaped landing craft inside. That little scene of them invading Naboo in TPM is awesome.

As for Clones designs, there's Slave I who is always glorious, and then those Republic Gunships.

I didn't really like Office Space much.


It's not bad, but it has to be one of the most overrated films I've seen. As office based films go 9 to 5 pisses all over it.

'Zach and Miri make a Porno' (2008)

Porn! Romance! Porn! Romance! Porn! Romance! Shit in face! Porn! Romance!

Kevin Smith has gone wrong and it makes me sad. Some good jokes though, and Jason Mewes looks terrifyingly healthy.

'The Happening' (2008)

Something... is happening. What... just happened? How could this happen? Happening. Happen. Happened. Happening.

They say "happening" a lot, and it's probably the funniest film I've seen since the 'Wicker Man' remake. Marky Mark does the best impression of a terrible actor I've ever seen and Zooey (that's not how you spell it) Deschanel is just awful.

The two weirdest films I've seen in years.

Whatever happened to a consistent tone?

EAGLE EYE
Pretty preposterous, but passable enough entertanment. Lot's of nice car crashes. Lebeouf at his most bearable.

THE STRANGERS
Efficient little thriller. Not amazing but has a few tense moments. Seen it all before though

The Last Seduction

So long since I've seen this. Bridget is one of my all time favourite characters.

Why is it always described as an erotic thriller, there's hardly any erotic in it.

Working Girl.

Arf.


Inkheart

Not too bad. Quite entertaining and a few nice ideas but generally pretty predictable and I think it sometimes got a bit preachy about the power of literature and how brilliant and precious books are and how we should all go and read something right now, m'kay! Other than that my only quibble would be the fact that the baddies were a bit 'pantomime' and the big bad dude at the end, although quite cool-looking, was a bit disappointing. A few nice little performances, though.

The scene with Marky Mark and the plant may be my favourite of the year. Couldn't stop laughing.

I think it's quite erotic. Purely because of the 'female as sexual predator' aspect, and the fucking against the wall.

'Working Girl' is no joking matter, I adored that film as a child.

Let the River Run!

It must be deliberate on his part, he's a wonderful actor. The film is hilariously bizarre, I sort of loved it - and had to watch 'The Wicker Man' immediately afterwards.

I remember having a long discussion with my sister about it after we saw it at the cinema. As an acting student, she found it really quite strange that he had clearly chosen that sort of tone or been directed to adopt it by Shyamalan, especially when he's talking to Zooey about...something and he's spinning an elaborate story that a) goes nowhere and b) ends in a punchline which he refuses to even acknowledge as a punchline. It is very odd.

I have to say that I liked it a lot more than I perhaps should. I think I'm probably on a similar wavelength to Mark Kermode on it in that I liked the fact that it was trying something odd but felt that a lot of what it was trying to achieve was undermined by the execution.

I do think that the direction throughout is actually quite solid. The scene where they come across all the people hanging from trees was particularly eerie, it's just that the material is so all over the place.

The 'arf' was purely because of the cheese factor. I also loved that film, it's perm-tastic.

All this talk of Working Girl makes me glad I missed the 80's. It all sounds positively ghastly. Not like the 90's, where we had class like Power Rangers: The Movie.

You can see what he's trying to do but his choices are just bizarre.
