    Harry Brown (249/140)

    by  • 5/20/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    HARRY BROWN (Netflix) – This is a pretty good Michael Caine film all round. Harry Brown has lost everything, and is left alone in a horrible council flat surrounded by thugs and criminals. His family is dead, his only friend is killed by thugs, and Harry takes matters into his own hands. I’d take the […]

    The Tunnel (248/139)

    by  • 5/19/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    THE TUNNEL (Free Download) – I grabbed a link for this the other day from Boing Boing or some other aggregator of interest out there. There aren’t a lot of legal, freely available current feature films, so I grab the ones that sound even remotely interesting. You can visit http://www.thetunnelmovie.net/ to get it yourself or […]

    Yo-Yo Girl Cop (247/138)

    by  • 5/18/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    YO-YO GIRL COP (DVD) – “Oh, those kids today with their web sites and their suicide!” I suppose judging Japanese youth culture by movies like this is about as fair as judging American youth culture by Vin Diesel movies. Apparently there have been suicide clubs in Japan, but is this Enemy Number One for the […]

    Sid and Nancy, The Fast and The Furious (243/136)

    by  • 5/16/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    Two variations on living fast and dying hard… SID AND NANCY (DVD) – I can see why John Lydon didn’t like this film. It seems to portray him as having some sort of sexual jealously when he sees Sid and Nancy together. There are some nice historical touches, like a recreation of the Bill Grundy […]

    Kill Bill Vol. 2, Bridesmaids, Win Win (241/135)

    by  • 5/15/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    KILL BILL VOL 2 (DVD) – While the Pei Mei story is interesting, with the martial arts master archetype, it’s really only there to explain how how The Bride could punch through a coffin, it’s really not needed as part of this story. It’s a bit like the pregnancy test / assassination attempt story; long, […]

    Shopgirl (234/133)

    by  • 5/13/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    SHOPGIRL (DVD) – Contrasting two jerks – one that’s a rich and and one that’s stupid. One tries to make her better, and the other is made better by her. The only thing that really bothers me is Mirabelle’s blonde nemesis, Lisa, from Saks. It just feels like it was slapped in by the studio, […]

    In The Loop (233/132)

    by  • 5/12/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    IN THE LOOP (iTunes) – This is one of those comedic films that doesn’t do the one thing that I’d expect from a comedy – it doesn’t make me laugh. These are funny people, but the whole thing presents as a documentary around government bureaucracy, and not a comedy. It’s interesting, and some of the […]

    Terminator, 28 Days Later (232/131)

    by  • 5/11/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    TERMINATOR (Fanedit) – I apparently only had TERMINATOR 2 stored in my memory – I don’t remember any of this. The “punks”, the restaurant Sarah works in, these phones you put money in in order to call someone… Most of this movie is something of a surprise to me, and it’s not just the re-added […]
