Silverado (1985)

I recorded this because there was something in the back of my mind that said that someone I liked was involved with it, then it turned out that about 12 people I liked were involved in it, as I kept saying ''Oh, Lawrence Kasdan directed it/Kevin Kline/Danny Glover/John Cleese/Jeff Goldblum is in it'' as the credits came up, and the film just about lived up to its rather oddly assembled cast.

A film that luxuriates in Western cliches, it sees four men (Kevin Kline, Scott Glenn, Kevin Costner and Danny Glover) team up to go to the eponymous town, where they encounter shady Sheriff Brian Dennehy, who's terrific, by the way, and a whole heap of double-crossing and shoot outs then ensure.

The script, by Kasdan and his brother, Mark, is witty and really sparkles, which you'd hope from the man who scripted both Raiders of The Lost Ark and The Empire Strikes Back, which makes up from the merely solid direction. There's nothing particularly wrong with Kasdan's skills behind the camera, it's just that the film looks a bit plain and feels plodding, even if the words give it a zip that its visuals can't match.

The performances also play a large part in how successful the film is, as everyone involved seems to have had a ball making it. Brian Dennehy really delights in being a complete bastard who you can't help but like; Danny Glover handles most of the dramatic scenes; and Kevin Kline is just hilarious. Sure, Kevin Costner's boyish performance is quite creepy, but the sight of John Cleese as a small-town Sherriff makes up for that.

The one thing that really annoyed me, though, was the music, which was apparently nominated for an Oscar back in those hazy, coked up days of the mid-80s. It's all very well being bombastic and swelling, but every two minutes? Every scene felt like a climax or like an event of staggering importance was occurring, and that sort of thing really irks me as it messes with the pacing of a film and makes it all feel squashed together. Good score, bad implementation.

It's not great art, but it is good fun.

he - born to kill - the special technique of letter-boxing...

i'd write a synopsis, but the one on the dvd box sums things up nicely;

"during the investigation of a case, sergeant li fu-xing (alex man) met with a boy named chen xing-fa of 8 or 9 years old. with great concerns and confidence, li wished to personally reform this self-abandoned and rebellious. disappointingly, not only he tailed in the end, but also chen xing-fa (jack kao) had grown into a phonomania. with an alias of ah-lung, chen never changed a bit, instead he became merciless, evil and heartless. sergeant li had no choice but to pursue him. thus a bunch of bloody killings broke out..."

yep, that's right. although, if that makes sense, the film tries its hardest to confuse you. beginning with ah-lung killing li, the film then switches to a string of delirious memories as he recalls meeting a young sergeant li, his teenage life as a young rascal and his adult life as a cold killer. all interspersed with him waking up in his hideout, waiting for the cops to come. quite frankly, it is just a bit rubbish. and, that's me being kind...

it is, in essence, a crappy exploitation flick, filled with dialogue that i can believe is as dire as the attempt which has been made to translate it, with some limited violence thrown in for good measure. all in all, it is a little cheap and nasty.

what makes the film cheaper and nastier, apart from the aforementioned translation; which appears on screen as burnt in chinese/english subtitles, is the fact that it is, quite clearly, a transfer from a really shitty vhs. not only this, but the entire soundtrack appears to have been done in post-production and they have done a terrible job.

best avoided...



sparrow - umbrella...

four pickpockets, or sparrows, who work in central hong kong, come into contact with a beautiful young woman, chun lei (kelly lin), and find their lives turned upside down. kei (simon yam), bo (gordon lam), sak (law wing-cheong) and mac (kenneth cheung) all find themselves falling under chun lei's spell, only to find that she is always being watched by the stooges of mr fu (lo hoi-pang); an old timer who feels that chun lei is his property...

this is a film which took three years for johnnie to to film: in hong kong term, that's an eternity. in that time he has chalked up another half a dozen directorial credits to his name; including the excellent 'exiled', 'mad detective' and the two 'election' films (which, criminally, i still haven't got round to watching). for me, i see this as being a labour of love: ideas that to had, shots he wanted to film, but finding the film to put them in, obviously, became a tricky prospect.

the film, in terms of narrative, is very simple; however, as with almost all milkyway productions, it has richness injected into it from other avenues. visually, the film is quite, quite beautiful; the shots of hong kong and the unconventional framing of shots and lighting of scenes showcase some of the most interesting cinematography i've seen come out of hong kong for a while. on top of this, the movement of characters and the choreography of scenes where there are pockets to be picked are more akin to busby berkeley numbers, than hong kong choreography.

add to this a stellar cast and you're able to forgive any perceived narrative short-comings.

a great little film...



under the rose - and into the gutter...

when i saw that joy sales had re-issued this, a documentary (and a catIII one, at that), i thought i'd investigate. all i could find out, was that it was directed by otto chan and was presented by james wong. now, otto chan has a few adult, crime and comedic features to his name; none of which i've seen. james wong, on the other hand, as well as having composed the music for dozens of films, throughout the eighties and nineties, is one of those guys who crops up all over the place.

and, so the the dvd arrived and, ably assisted by veronica choi, james wong takes you on a journey into the world of sex in early nineties hong kong: porn, dogging, public snogging, gigolos, bar girls, peep shows and prostitution. this is not a standard documentary. mixing tales of old, interviews, (actual and questionable) hidden camera footage and reconstructions, it paints a picture which flits between the scandalous and the silly. and, in a typically hong kong way, the humorous and the unsavoury have little to divide them.

not great; a little too sleazy at times, but rather funny at others. a curiosity, for sure...

Death Race

Nowhere near as camp (or as clever) as the original but in its 'hardcore' approach it manages to be as camp as a bejeweled box of Turkish Delight. I'm not sure if PWS Anderson, in an attempt to appeal to a young, testosterone fuelled audience that'll have never even heard of the original, decided to also make it so tongue in cheek that the older audience could also appreciate it. If it is deliberate then he's pulled it off in a way that seems accidental, which for me made it more enjoyable.

I think its main fault, for this type of movie, is the action scenes themselves. They're fairly good but nothing you haven't seen before and by the end it does get repetitive and a little dull.

I did at first think that the reason the story was so different from the original would have mainly been down to budget reasons but I still think it could have been done. I do wonder how much of having any anti-American subtext, even if it's as ludicrous as the original, would get into this kind of film in the current climate, which is sad.

In all it's enjoyable enough in a modern Running Man kind of way but that's about it. I'd wait for the dvd to be honest.

Hard Eight

First time I've seen this. It seems very nineties American indie (which is no surprise because that's what it is) and ever so slightly amateur (which I usually like anyway) but it's still very good. Not sure what I'd make of it on a second viewing as if you've seen the film I'm sure you'll know what I mean. Definitely full of Anderson promise, though, and I thought the music was good too.

Tropic Thunder again, just as funny as the first time, with the added pleasure of seeing it with a large group of friends who had little knowledge about one particular aspect of the film, so their reactions to it were priceless.
Omniscia
Righteous Kill

Pacino is Pacino, De Niro is De Niro, and Brian Dennehy and John Leguizamo turn in fine supporting roles, in this formulaic vigilante/cop thriller that's slow to start but builds up steam just before the end. Not a classic by any stretch of the imagination, but good enough for a rental.

Hell Ride

Kind of shit but kind of good at the same time for the same reasons. A bit like if Russ Meyer tried to make a Peckinpah movie, except writer/director/star Larry Bishop is definitely an ass man. He also seems to be doing Peter Richardson's Al Pacino impression throughout. Enjoyable enough and better than a lot of biker movies.
NiteFall
Righteous Kill

A mediocre and slightly disappointing script saved by some fantastic performances. Not just from De Niro and Pacino either, Donnie Wahlberg and John Leguizamo are brilliant and even Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson is passable.

Malcolm X (1992)

Spike Lee's lengthy biopic about the life of one of the most influential black leaders of the twentieth century. It's a credit not only to Denzel Washington, who's absolutely magnetic in the title role, but also to Spike's direction, editing and writing that the film flows so smoothly; it really didn't feel like 3 hours long.

A thoughtful film that left me with a lot to ruminate on.

Death Race (2008)

Blah. Plot. Blah. Statham. Blah. Murdered wife. Blah. Prison. Blah. Forced to race by a slumming it Joan Allen.

Death Race is trash, pure and simple. Of course, there's nothing wrong with that, so long as it's fun trash. Sadly, that's not the case; Death Race is just boring trash. The characters are dull, the writing's dull and the story is yawn-inducing. None of that would matter, though, if the action could keep things chugging along and it just doesn't.

It's perhaps apt that a film called ''Death Race'' would feature races that are so lifeless. Paul W.S. Anderson over edits the races to such an extent that you more often than not can't tell what's going on. So much stuff just flies around, so many characters get killed off in uninventive ways that you don't really care about what's going on until maybe the last half an hour, which is pretty good. It's indicative of the general quality of the action that the most exciting moment is when Statham is involved in a fist fight. That's right; the most exciting action sequence in a film about cars with big fuck off guns on them is one which is just two blokes fighting.

Perhaps Anderson has spent too long making videogame adaptations, since they seem to have coloured his non-pixel inspired works, as what you have in Death Race is a movie version of WipeOut, complete with power-ups but minus the decent soundtrack. And if, like me, you hate the WipeOut games, then I'd hardly take that as a recommendation.

The worst part about Death Race is that there is some clear promise there; technical, it looks miles better than anything Anderson's ever done; he's got both Joan Allen, who proves that it's possible to be so cold that you come out the other side as smoking hot, and Ian McShane, both of whom are very watchable even if they are e-mailing in their performances; and the story itself has potential to be a very witty take on reality television. Unfortunately, Anderson's script lets it down. Just watch it and think about the dialogue, and I bet that you'll be able to think of dozens of better lines than he could. If only film had been a bit smarter, allowing for a grotesque satire, or dumber, providing campy thrills, then it'd be much better. As it is, it occupies a hazy middle-ground, being too serious to be the sort of film it needs to be to fit in comfortably with Statham's oeuvre, but not clever enough to be vaguely interesting.

I wasn't bored watching Death Race, but I think that's mainly because I just kept thinking about how it could have been better.

Had a movie night at my friends.

Dead Mary - Big pile of wank. A poor man's The Thing set with a bunch of people on a weekend away at a big house. Makes absolutely no sense, the plot was all over the place when it existed at all, had no gore in it whatsoever, and ended like there was supposed to be an extra 30 minutes to go. Really, really rubbish.

EVIL - Cheap and funny Greek zombie gorefest. Starts within 5 minutes and never lets up, has some hilarious moments in it and some good gore in there too. Reminded me of the kind of films Peter Jackson used to make, or a Troma movie (not the ones made by Troma, the ones released under the label).

The Last Action Hero - Don't really need to say anything, great stuff. The kind of "old man befriends kid and they have an adventure" movie can't really be made any more without people screaming kiddie-fiddler, which is a shame because they all had a lot of charm to them.
Rebus
Tsotsi (2005)

Set in a Johannesburg township, this is the story about Tsotsi (which translates as Thug), whose only source of income is robbery. There is more to Tsotsi than just petty theft as he has to face up to a level of responsibility when the care he steals one night turns out to have baby in the back. A fellow gang member told him he had no sense of decency, something for which Tsotsi beat the living shit out him for. But being confronted with this child, Tsotsi feels uncomfortable with this new found sense of decency when he feels compelled to care for it.

A pretty grim depiction of life for those living in poor conditions on the wrong side of the tracks in South Africa, and how difficult it can really be to have responsibility in your life. Presley Chweneyagae puts in a brilliant performance as the titular young criminal trying to make the first ever good decision in his life. There are very few points where the director allows you to feel sympathetic towards him, and indeed you shouldn't. However despite the terrible things he does in the film, especially in one of the opening scenes, you are somehow drawn to him, and that's because of Chweneyagae's wonderful skill at inhabiting such a threateningly intimidating character but giving him an utterly broken core that is so apparent in his face. He doesn't say much throughout the film so his face is all the more important.

The cinematography also needs a mention as it is beautifully shot. The fine-grain detail of the film gives even these slums a stark and earthy beauty. Thoroughly enjoyable.
Crutch
The Punisher - The one with Dolph Lundgren. Not as gory and not as shite as I expected. In fact it was a really well made 80s action flic with really 3 dimensional bad guys. And a hot ninja chic. And Lundgren looks really fucked up. I don't know if you can call that acting, but it was okay. The one with Thomas Jane is better, but this almost as good.

My Blueberry Nights - A Wong Kar Wai movie with characters that look different from each other. I really like it. It's like a meta-roadmovie.

the duchess - a couple of hours ago my belly was on a woman...

a young georgiana spencer (keira knightley)is married off to the duke of devonshire (ralph fiennes), becoming the duchess of devonshire. georgiana, the duchess or 'g' (very hip-hop for the eighteenth century), soon finds her dreams and romantic notions of marriage crushed by the duke; as far as he's concerned, a successful marriage consists of his new wife bearing a male heir for him, and little else.

georgiana puts up with her lot, despite holding a torch for an up-and-coming politician, charles grey (dominic cooper), and soon finds herself the darling of the london set, wowing all with her sense of style and personable nature. still, regardless of her popularity, her husband is none too pleased with the fact that he now has two daughters, with georgiana, and it isn't long before he begins to roam...

well, after watching 'pride and prejudice', making a subsequent trip to chatsworth house and seeing a plethora of promotional material for 'the duchess', i decided to go and see this. i happily missed all the attempts to tie the narrative in with charles / diana / camilla bollocks, otherwise i may have been put off...

the first thing to say about this film, is that it is very pretty; there's a heap of nice cinematography, some amazing locations, lots of quite amazing costumes and some rather super wigs. all good. beyond this, the film, based on a novelisation of the duchess of devonshire's peculiar marriage, is a scandal filled, soap opera of a costume drama. there's comedy and melodrama aplenty and, even though it's not up to the standards of austen, it is an enjoyable watch. knightley and cooper both do quite good jobs of swanning round in the foreground, as does hayley atwell (as georgiana's friend, who soon becomes the object of the dukes attention), but it is ralph fiennes, simon mcburney and aidan mcardle who steal the show.

fiennes is, quite simply, super when it comes to portraying the duke as a loathsome swine and, indeed, he seems to revel in the role. meanwhile, mcburney and mcardle, as charles fox (the leader of the opposition) and sheriden (the playwright), provide titter-worthy banter and an extra layer to the film.

a fun, but lightweight, slice of costume drama...

Well - there could be worse older men to be farmed out to as a baby machine. As with the whole Forsyte Saga Lewis casting debacle , they should stop chosing handsome devils to play ravishing aristocratic 'monsters' from them days - who stride around the place in tight pants, shouting orders.

Zoe - you just need to corner Voldemorte on an aeroplane. You may not get a wedding out of it ... but a life-time of child support is on the cards. Plus, no ugly kid - it promises to be eccentric and arty! Celebrity Sex Win!

I though the Duchess looked well-pish because of the subliminal Lady Di pictures in the trailer. And the wigs. Plus, Keira Knightly can have 18 kids and still look like a pencil? Nah, I don't buy that. Still - Chatsworth is pretty. And this may be the candidate for my friend and I's "get drunk in a film" outing. We have one every 6 months or so. It's often fun - but I recommend an early showing so you can talk and not annoy people.

luckily i missed all the diana bollocks. luckily it's only featured in the trailer and not in the film at all...

the wigs were fun and costumes were good though. chatsworth is pretty, but you don't really see any of it. not to worry, there are lots of other nice locations...

she does indeed have three children and remains rake-like. hmm...

as for your early evening, chatty film idea; that's pretty much what the 17:45 friday evening showing was like and the people chatting kinda suited it; especially when, after a particular scene, one girl uttered "tease!" a little loudly, causing some general tittering from the rest of the audience.

The bounder wants your fortune, my dear and in the end you push him of a tower in Switzerland. Jane Austen (played by Sue Perkins) is in it - at the ending, she reads the newspaper reports to her brother, Giles and tuts at the melodrama.

"Poor Miss Jeyes" she cries "And they never found his body ...".

Yes - Parker would make a sexy and ev0l Victorian husband in any period drama - why hasn't it happened yet? Andrew Davies where are you? Fassbender, Armitage or Denisoff would do me - arf arf.

In Bruges

Really enjoyed it. The story was maybe laid out in an all-too easy way to follow, it was fairly obvious where everything was going (or rather being led to), but that certainly didn't detract from the script, which was brilliant, and at times very funny. Never really been a fan of Colin Farrell but this was perfect for him, and he surprised me. But Brendan Gleeson was brilliant. Bruges looks lovely.

I saw two movies on the plane to and from NY:

Kung-Fu Panda, and Prince Caspian. The first was terrifically entertaining with genuinely funny moments if not the same visual innovation of Pixar, the second was incredibly slow and boring for a children's fantasy movie but with some decent effects and direction.
