Crazy, Stupid, Love
The pretty good cast and surprisngly good reviews made me give it a chance. Awful decision. A very poorly written, cliche-ridden, generic chick flick that gets worse as it goes on.

The American Friend
Interesting 'thriller', but often times boring and not quite up to par with Paris, Texas or Wings of Desire.

Pheww, I just got the idea to re-watch Quantum of Solace, and it must be the 5th or 6th time now. And it incredibly gets better with every viewing, being meanwhile a pure watching pleasure in which I can enjoy every pretty second (well nearly every). I'm now easily ready to give it a 10.

It is probably one of the best edited films I have ever seen, and I have seen quite a lot. and the visual beauty of nearly every single shot of the film is just amazing, and the film contains a damn lot of shots. not only the action scenes have a fast editing frequency, also nearly every scene is resolved into fast changing shots from different angles, and it is the editing which doubles the beauty. And it not the showy beauty of films by directors like Ridley Scott or his brother. Not the braggy beauty of the academy award winning films, the hollow beauty of advertisements, no, there lies a deeper beauty in them which is mirrored by the intelligence of the elegant dialogues the inspired acting in which every mimic and every gestic movement seems to be in complete accordance with the story, their inner and outer motives, the film's politics (it has some), the overall narrative flow. Quantum of Solace is a never expected miracle.

Expresso Bongo - 8/10 - Small-time talent agent Laurence Harvey scores it big promoting singer Cliff Richard, becoming an overnight sensation. Harvey's distraught however to learn his charge has a mind of his own. Adaptation of a much edgier West End musical, the film smoothing over the rougher satirical edges especially re: Richard's character. Bowdlerized or not it still works, with nicely cynical humor and one of Harvey's better performances.

You're all right, stanton. I don't care WHAT that Jenkins guy says about you.



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

You talking about number ratings?

I've just decided since then its stupid to label movies with numbers. But if you want...Crazy Stupid Love, 2.5/10...The American Friend 5/10.

also yes stay in your own little private thread please

Prophecy - 4/10 - Silly horror flick about mercury somehow creating a bloodthirsty mutant bear. What could have been a decent creature feature is dragged down by stultifying pretentiousness. Director John Frankenheimer hits on every conceivable '70s hot button issue: pollution, urban squalor, Indian rights, even abortion. That's nice, but we want monster attacks not lectures. Then again, the attack scenes are excrutiatingly dumb (you will believe a sleeping bag can explode!) so maybe that's not so bad. A few points for nice photography and decent acting.

The Snorkel (1958) Director: Guy Green stars: Peter van Eyck, Betta St. John, and Mandy Miller. from Imdb: Paul Decker (van Eyck) murders his wife in her Italian villa by drugging her milk and asphyxiating her by gas. He cleverly locks the bedroom from the inside and hides inside a trapdoor in the floor until after the body is discovered by servants. He uses a scuba snorkel connected to tubes on the outside to breathe during the ordeal. Decker's stepdaughter Candy (Miller) suspects him immediately, especially since no suicide note was found. She also is convinced that he murdered her father years before, but her accusations fall on deaf ears. The ruthless Decker even poisons the family spaniel when the pet takes too great an interest in the mask and realizes he will ultimately have to get rid of Candy too, ok film 6/10

The Hollow Crown: Henry IV Part 1

7/10

Well, Richard II was much better. This play is a typical middle part, with a great big "to be continued" stamp. And it's half comedy. There were some foreshadowing moments but generally, it's falling apart. Hope the second part has a better plot.
Also, King Henry himself barely had screentime. Falstaff stole the show and I don't like him much. Prince Hal is of course Hiddles, which means beautiful and his voice is made for reciting Shakespeare. Can't wait to get more of him.

The battle looked great, dirty and gritty, no gallant stuff here.

I don't really get Hotspur's problem. So he's a rebellious lad who randomly wants to pwn the King because why not? Someone should really slap him.

Also, where did the last play's lords go? Even the younger ones vanished. Did the King get rid of them all?

Kings of the Road
Unlike The American Friend (ZZzzzzz), a much closer step toward the greatness of Wenders' Wings of Desire and Paris, Texas. Although I think it could benefit from a slightly more conventional structure (don't ask me how, because I have no idea), it's a criminally under-seen film.

Which version was this?
