As part of a seminar yesterday i watched a film called "the door in the floor" based on a john irvine novel called "a widow for a year"...it was actually quite good, one of these quiet films but faintly disturbing in patches with a great humour to it, starring Jeff Bridges (carrying his character as a more reformed, wealthy Lebowski) and Kim Basinger...

Basic storyline without many spoilers is that Bridges and Basinger are married with a young daughter and 2 sons who died pre-film...JB is a writer and gets a young apprentice, his marriage is falling apart so they temp split spending a night at the house each to look after their daughter...(hop skip jump) the young lad apprentice starts banging Basinger!...much more to it than this, its a deep film in many respects

check it out, im sure you wont b disappointed

I've started watching a film called "The Football Factory". Far from being the expected hijinx of a third-world country 3p-a-minute-slave football manufacturers with hilarious consequences, it's actually quite violent and uses the word "muggy" quite a lot. I wouldn't have noticed it but I've yet to see an actual mug in the film yet.

From what I have seen, two thoughts spring to mind:

1. I'm never going to a football match again
2. I'm never leaving the house again

Cheers Homealoneyboys,

Carlos

There are no bears in either version. I meant bares. Sorry.

Well I just watched 'Me and You and Everyone We Know'. Um, it's very difficult to describe, other than that it's a film that looks at several peoples lives and how they interact. Some funny moments, some sad. Crap review I know, but if you watch it (or already seen it), then you might know what I mean.

I watched the first part in the 15 minute morning TV slot before work and the rest last night. It's actually only 1h 22m long, which I was disappointed with, as it was getting quite good.

Quite alarmingly, the "making of:" documentary had more swearing than the film!

Cheers Extraboys,

Carlos

Just watched 'London' with that Jason Statham bloke (the one who cant make up his mind if he's doing an English or American accent). Bloke has bird trouble, goes to party, spends an hour in the bathroom with Statham taking a huge pile of cocaine, has fight, leaves, takes ex-bird to airport. The End.

Complete and utter toilet, up there with Revolver for shiteness, AVOID !!!!!

I very rarely watch movies, but yesterday I saw Whicker man and a day or so before saw tin men and enjoyed both of them.

The only things that weren't quite right - the "Elvis" wasn't a particularly good likeness, and the fact that he 'introduced' cash to the pills wasn't right according to my friend (who is a massive Elvis fan!), and also Sun Studios were Cash recorded his first record was nothing like the original in Memphis - and I'm sure that they could have filmed it on location properly!! Other than that a really good film

Had a kill a couple of hours after the pub/football on Saturday, so went into cinema and asked what was on now that would be over within 2 hours. So saw Aeonflux. Which is pretty woeful.

Brokeback mountain. 7/10.

Nicely shot, nicely acted, slow as hell. How this is up for so many Oscars defies belief.

May I be permitted to say that it would be up for a fair few less if it wasn't about gay cowboys. It hardly broke new ground as far as two men kissing is concerned. Well perhaps for Hollywood it was shocking. Still I remember Jon Voight doing similar stuff in the early seventies in Midnight Cowboy.

Do not go and see this at the cinema at nearly 10 quid a ticket.

If there is not a better film, mainstream or otherwise to take the oscar honours I would be somewhat disappointed.

Recently have seen Saw and Memento

Saw - I thought was very good but being a big girl I couldn't watch some parts of it. Liked the twist. 8/10

Memento - Again loved the twist and enjoyed the film - 7/10

I nearly didn't bother with this, Pierce Brosnan is hardly known for his challenging roles, but then along comes The Matador.....

What a cracking little film, I really, really enjoyed this, Brosnans potrayal of a burnt out hitman is fabulous, and quite tongue in cheek in places. He really does come across as a very unstable character.

Great locations, great music.....

Theres a couple of good twists, though a tad predictable, but all in all, I can heartily recommend this, and it almost makes moustaches fashionable again..... almost...

Cheers Paf will have to have a look out for this. Very hard for a former Bond to break out of the stereotype (although it is probably stereotypical for me to say that). Connery managed it, Lazenby seems not to have acted again, Moore just made silly comedies and Dalton disappeared off the radar. Even Tailor of Panama was a kind of toned down Bond movie.

I saw Chopper last night, pretty good depiction of a nutcase. Hidalgo wasn' too bad either, probably 6/10 at best.

I've watched a lot of the 'award' movies this year and tried Syriana last night. Clooney can be good at times as can Matt Damon, but suprisingly the best performance for me was from Alexander Siddig (who is best known as the doctor in Star Trek DS9).

It was long, it was quite a complex plot, you need to invest time to watch this. Is it worth it though? I found it quite muddled to be honest, too much going on, it was like a mixed platter, when really a decent main course was what you wanted.

If middle eastern politics, corporate corruption and petrochemicals are your bag, then this is for you, if your looking for a date movie, avoid at all costs.
