"the way you see them in the trailer" Direct quote.
(And according to the editing of the action scenes of Collateral, I bet they'll be far better edited in the movie than they are in the trailer, which is pretty good apart from that)

But what can you expect from someone who thinks Gomorrah deserves 10 out of 10?? And who ranks it above The Goodfellas, Casino, The Godfather and The Last Day of Johnny Boy??

slang for mean streets?

Oo

You mean you have really not seen the greatest masterpiece ever, The Last Day of Johnny Boy??

(although the Mean Streets reference was a good guess)

Gomorrah (2008) - 10/10. If you see only one film about organized crime in your lifetime . . . see this one too! Also, never plan a vacation to Naples. Here are five separate stories, with five separate casts, that have only one thing in common: the Comorra crime syndicate. Weaving the strands--but not intertwining them--allows the filmmakers to give a sense of how pervasive the organization is. Sure, you would have guessed they were involved in drugs and prostitution, but toxic waste disposal? Even haute couture? None of the 5 stories ends well for any of the lead characters, although several do escape with their lives. The Comorra is pititless, as is the lens that records all that they do. I say "records" because the illlusion of cinema verite is preserved throughout. There is no commentary directing our thoughts, no title cards to help keep the viewer oriented: the audience must stay engaged in order to make sense of what they see. It's doable, but this is not a popcorn movie, and you can't check your brain at the door.


It's playing on ON DEMAND.

The DVD is available in R2 as a double-disc set. I'm not sure what's on the second disc, but the set is cheap enough anyway that I might just get it.

Julius Caesar (1979, BBC): 4/10

Play: excellent. It's the Bard at his finest.

Set: awful. Cheap studio shit with fake sky, fake rocks, fake everything...

Camera work: un-cinematic, with a lot of very badly shot close-ups. They are nothing like the Delli Colli close-ups.

Acting: theatrical.

Caesar: a boring old dude, looks like he's as bored as the audience. Fortunately, he gets killed fast.

Brutus: quite okay, but he could not even kiss the divine James Mason's hand! Besides, he makes his death scene look like he was stabbed in the cojones. Gawd. Strato, hold thatr demmed sword normally, okay?

Cassius: *cries after John Gielgud* Dude's like a mix of a rat and a hyperactive child. Although, he does the Act IV shouting scene well. His death is... well, at least not "in the cojones". But he lies there, eyes wide open, like, for 10 minutes before someone realizes he should close his eyes...

Antony: hot, and fits the part. He's not Brando, but a good Antony at last.

Girls: honestly, I was so bored i skipped the whole Portia-Ligarius-Calpurnia lamenting about her dream sequence.

Positive: they kept every line, no cuts.

This includes also my favourite minor haracter, Titinius! But the actor does him no justice - he's bored and almost laughing by his final monologue. I mean, wtf. Dude's broken and sad and overwhelmed with emo-ness. He's so knocked out by the fact he caused (unwillingly) Cassius' death that he kills himself. And this shame of an actor f-ed up the whole scene.

So: for Shakespeare geeks, yes. For others: well, if you want a good laugh...  Evil


Go watch the '53 version by Mankiewitz, including Brando, Mason, Gielgud, and Sykes from The Wild Bunch cameo-ing as Casca.

Hard-Boiled (1992) - 8/10
The best I've seen from Woo. And now my question is: Are the A Better Tomorrow movies worth watching? I think there's a pretty cheap boxset around...

''Royal Flash'' (1975)

If you can get past the horrible dubbing and even more horrible music, definitely.

Body of Lies - 5/10 - Basically Syriana-lite without the ludicrously labrynthian plot and cast. A pretty typical thriller/"political" film with nothing of particular interest to say about terrorism, the Middle East, or US foreign policy. DiCaprio is pretty good but Crowe is wasted in a worthless role that could have been played by any 50 character actors. The climactic showdown between DiCaprio and the terrorist leader MIGHT have worth commending if it weren't for the ludicrous "Hollywood ending". A few okay action scenes and impressive cinematography but no real reason to watch.

Hard Men (1996) - 5/10

B grade British ''mean gangstas going around London'' flick. ''Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels'' and the likes younger brother and precursor. Interesting to note that the crime boss ''Pops Den'' is played by ''Mad'' Frankie Fraser, a notorious real life British criminal. Watchable.


Razorback (1984) - 6/10

Aussie outback creature horror flick that horror fans will definitely enjoy. Kinda gets better with multiple viewings. Directed by Russell Mulcahy, mostly known for directing music videos, also the director of ''Highlander''.
