Saw Big Fish last night.

I'm a big Tim Burton fan and some are calling this his best film but IMO it wasn't a patch on Ed Wood or The Nightmare Before Christmas.

However, it was a massive return to form after Planet of the Apes and he tackled the subject matter very well (man's father is dying and he realises that he knows very little about his Dad's life as all of his old stories seem to be fantastical and made up). It could have got very sentimental but it didn't go over the top on the saccharine. Burton's own father was dying during the making of this and he recently described the making of it as cathartic.

It has some nice mystical Burton touches but isn't as dark as his usual work.

Albert Finney is superb as the old man and I'd recommend it to people who don't mind a bit of escapism. Avoid it if you like your movies steeped in reality (but then why would you be thinking about seeing a Burton movie in the first place if that was your outlook?).

Big Fish: Saw last Friday 30/1/04 (In Brighton )


See above. There are some great comical moments!
Ewan McGregor, doesn't get him kit off in this - Shame.
Still really good film, pretty heart warming, and magical.

9/10

Last Samurai - agree with sentiments earlier in the thread - fantastic film and much better than I thought. Whether you like him or not, Cruise was excellent as was the cast generally.

Big Fish - Superb. I would put this in my top 10 films of all time. Great, great film. I'm not especially a fan of Burton's, and prefer to view this in a wider context of filmaking. Having felt slightly dubious about the far-fetchedness of the film, I found it enormously refreshing in the end. In the same way that Yann Martel makes the improbable subject matter of 'Life of Pi' come to life, as does Burton here in this feast for the imagination.

He produced it too, so despite not directing it's still 'his' film in my eyes.

Donnie Darko (£4.99 on DVD now!). I thought the film was excellent,very surreal and original.The kind of film that you still think about long after the end credits.Some good 80's tunes as well (Joy Division).

Watched 'The Last Samuri' with Skippymoo a couple of nights ago, and its a fantastic film. We really enjoyed it. Its a little bit gorey with heads coming off and blood in a few places, but then if films are not like this then how does anyone ever get to know what war was really like? Or rather have any kind of understanding of what it was like?

Watched Matchstick Men last night. Seen it before, but I still thought it was excellent. Nicolas Cage and his daughter play their roles superbly....and the twist... OUCH!

Charlie

Went to see this at the cinema yesterday. Its about the life of Charlie Richardson if you didn't know. It was one of the poorest films I've seen in a long while. Aside from the fact that it is a ridiculously one sided account of Richardson's exploits, which appears to completely exonnerate him of all criminal guilt whilst portraying those who testified against him as being thoroughly disreputable con-men, it is also a very poor and cliched example of film making. The plot is fragmentary, confused and tries to pack in too much detail in too little time, and the use of flashbacks and playing with the film's time-frame give the film no real feeling of continuity, and it probably isn't helped by the fact that the film largely revolves around a highly contrived and ridiculously unrealistic court-room where the "torture trial" takes place. The constant aspirations of the film to elevate itself to Lock, Stock status in terms of use of stylistic camera work (split screens, freeze frames, etc) are as cliched as you are likely to see, and reinforce the impression that the film has delusions of grandeur without any substance to back it up. Having said that Luke Goss doesn't do too badly at all in the lead role, and manages to capture quite well the ruthless, psychotic streak in his character.

The film is most let down by its director, Malcolm Needs, who was responsible for the flop Shoreditch, and who manages to single handedly ruin what could have been a decent premise for a good British film. His attempts to make the film stylish are irritating, the use of documentary style interviews with the characters makes the film even more one sided in its perspective and fragmentary, and the film seems to be pervaded by some truly terrible and cliched examples of South London dialect. One could easily forgive Needs' condemnation of the justice system that sent Richardson down, or the over-indulgent cinematography of the film if it was not built on so many cliches. A lot of the violence, such as the repeated depictions of enemy's of Richardson having their testicles electrocuted is purely gratuitous, and is completely contradicted by the film's attempts to take a moral stance to clear him of any blame. As such it is little more than a poor parody of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and manages to make 'The Krays' film look like a cinematic masterpiece. Disappointing.

1/5

I just finished watching the movie Cidade de Deus (or City of god). Itís a movie about the place: Cidade de Deus. Which is a poor housing project started in the 60's that became one of the most dangerous places in Rio de Janeiro by the beginning of the 80's.
Refreshing to see something different than your normal American movie..
Excellent stuff, Iíll give it 8 out of 10Ö

I recently read Philip K Dick's short story Minority Report - and then saw the film. Okay, so the film isn't bad, but why bother saying it's based on Dick's story when the plot goes off on a complete tangent within 10 minutes? Would have been better to say "based on the world created by Philip K Dick". And furthermore, I thought Dick's story was much more plausible (in a sci-fi kind of way).

I originally posted this post in the "what are you reading" thread, but I think it is equally pertinent here.

I saw Zatoichi in Croydon cinema a few days ago. Excellent Japanese samurai film. Sort of like Daredevil meets Kill Bill, but way better than either of those films.

Finally saw Last Samurai last week, suprisingly enjoyable. Have gone of Tom Cruise recently but thought he was good. Ken Wattanbe was excellent. The end sequence is very nicely shot. 8/10.
But Billy Connelly, oh dear. Sounded like someone doing an impression of a Scotsman putting an Irish accent on. On par with his perfomance in Timeline (which isn't worth reviewing as it was so f*cking awful).

Secret Window: Depp in fine form again. The guy who plays the Southern chap is very creepy. Not brilliant, but very enjoyable. 7/10

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind: Depends on your view of Jim Carrey. I'm not a massive fan, but did enjoy The Trueman Show. This is another serious-ish role and he does very well. Kate Winslet is excellent and Kirsten Dunst is lovely. Sort of ruined by people around me laughing all through it. Just because Carrey is in it does not mean it is a comedy. 8/10

Love Actually: Bill Nighy was brilliant. But overall to long. 6/10

And I saw Agent Cody Banks 2, but the less said about that the better.
