HAHAHAHAHA. Soz.

I saw Blood Diamond last week and it's quite fun in a Hollywood kind of way. There's loads wrong with it if you are looking for a intelligent film about the Evil Diamond Trade, but for a blockbuster with a brain it's damn entertaining.

Watched DOOM on Tuesday night.

Turned it off after an hour. :(

I was expecting crap, but not boring.

I watched 'Waiting' the other day. I thought it was a great film, really crude but also very funny in parts. Definitely recommended if you're looking for a good toilet humour film.

And I also finally watched The Shining last week. Oh dear. Maybe it's because I just read the book, or it might simply be due to the fact that it's now nearly 30 years old, but I thought it was a major disappointment. Cheesy music, bad acting (apart from Nicholson) and not very scary at all. Worst of all, it took almost all the story from the book out of it, making it a lot more duller than it should have been.

What about the twins, though? I nearly shat myself first time I saw them!

*MORE SPOILERS*

Yeah, there were a few good scenes. But it was still nothing compared to the book (the twins weren't even in the book, not sure what they were doing in the film).

Most of all, though, I was disappointed by the fact that it didn't explore any the reasons for why Jack turned into a lunatic, something that the book did really well. In the film, he's just a normal dad, and then all of a suddeen he becomes this crazed psychopath wanting to kill his own family. I guess that's what the film was focusing on, to make it as scary as possible, but a little bit of backstory would have been nice.

Watched a DivX of 'The Host' the other night (aka Gwoemul). S. Korea's biggest box office hit ever, it's a bitter-sweet romance about the forbidden love between a giant mutant tadpole and a young Korean school girl. Maybe.

Great film. It concentrates more on the girl's dysfunctional family and how they pull-together in their attempts to rescue her than on the (quite well done) CGI monster. Nice ending. 4/5

Well I 'aquired' the Divx of Feast last night, but the bloody video and audio were out of sych (is there an easy way to fix this?!). I got as far in as seeing the "intros"

a) I can tell already that this film is going to rock

b) It's got Jason *Fucking* Mews in there. Jason *Fucking* Mews! Playing Jason *Fucking* Mews no less - see a)

Watched Scarface the other night. It was quite long but definitely worth watching. Al Pacino did one of his best performances ever, and it was also surprisingly funny at times. 8/10

You should have at least skipped ahead to the utterly hilariously bad "FPS" bit.

Just about to watch the War Of The Worlds Live DVD.

I watched "The Straight Story" (no, it's not the sequal to Brokeback Mountain) over the weekend thanks to Dirtbox's suggestion and anyone who hasn't seen it should. It's beautiful.

Isn't it though? Proof positive that lynch is capable of making films that don't feature midget sex

Yeah, easily one of my favourite films of all time. The perfect late sunday afternoon, chill-out film.

Ok that was surprisingly ok. Not good, but it didn't want to make me shoot myself.

I think i'm gonna watch the Cable Guy in a minute. Its good when your the only person in work, getting paid to watch films ftw!

Likewise.

It was 'Human Traffic' tonight, but that had to be switched off after less than 10 minutes.

Watching 'Football Factory' now, and it's actually rather good.

'Hard Candy' next.

I thought Munich was pretty decent to be honest. Not one of his best but certainly worthy.

Don't get me wrong, it's a good movie, but compared with some of the masterpieces Spielberg gave us in the past, his last efforts seem to be getting down the drain (with some exceptions)

I don't remember enjoying A.P anywhere near as much as I thought I would, but then I also remember telling people in the pub how great it was. :/

May have to watch it again.

Steamboy is a lot better than I was really expecting. It isn't very similar to the director's previous stuff like Akira but it is entertaining.

Has nice battle scenes too.
