Thank you. I like your picture as well but believe it or not, I have yet to see a Dirty Harry movie. I gotta find a chance to watch one. Pulp Fiction is the only perfect/near-perfect film I've seen. I think Django Unchained might come close to topping it and I'm looking forward to seeing Tarantino venture into a completely new area with it.

But...I thought Clint Eastwood was a bad ass in all of his films?

I believe that Unchained will top most of his films and will probably be on a similar level with Inglourious Basterds. As far I can tell from the previews, it looks like it's going to have a very linear story unlike the old Tarantino formula. This means it'll probably turn into another Death Proof, which I have absolutely no problem with.

I couldn't get into Jackie Brown. It just moved too slow even for a Tarantino film. I watched about a good hour and a half of it and was not impressed whatsoever. That was a little over a year ago so I'm willing to give it another chance in the future.

Could they made a human ladder straight away and drop the woman from a lesser height? I'm trying to think about it. Could they of unbolted it a bit and drop from lesser height? But then the wolves would come into it, I guess it depends.

Your thoughts mirror my own when it comes to Kill List and The Loved Ones. I'm an Australian, so I love a good Aussie horror. But I think Kill List, for me anyway, can be movie that improves over time.

I will get back to you on a recommendation, I'll think for a while. :)

I've thought about it. This might take awhile. :)

Unfortunately, the three movies you listed all underperformed in Australia. We don't go to Aussie movies much because we think it's going to suck because it's homegrown, lacking the budgets of American movies. But sometimes I don't blame them, there was a long stretch where no quality came out of Australia. We were getting ridiculous comedies such as You and Your Stupid Mate, The Nugget, Thunderstruck, Garage Days and many more.

I think I'll break it up, put the recommendations below.

First of all, I will put down some movies that aren't Australian that I think you should see.

Once Were Warriors : Just a must see film, that's all their is to it. It's an extremely hard watch at times, but it's a very impressive film that follows a Maori family dealing with domestic violence. If you see this, and like it, their is also a sequel called What Becomes of the Broken Hearted?. Not as good, but you may like it.

I Saw the Devil: I noticed that you had Oldboy and The Good, the Bad and the Weird high up on your list. You definitely should see this film! Starring the lead from Oldboy as a serial killer and the bad guy from GBW seeking revenge, plus it's a horror action movie, I really can't see how you couldn't enjoy it.

I'll keep going down below, just in case I lose all this. That would kill me. :)

I noticed you've also seen Daybreakers, another Aussie movie. It's not very high on your list, so that's thrown me out a little to what you might like, but I'll try my best.

Look up 70's and 80's Australian horror movies. These included such films as Turkey Shoot, Roadgames, Patrick, Inn of the Damned, Harlequin and many more. I wasn't a fan of these, but if you like exploitation movies, you may want to give them a shot. Tarantino loves them! Especially Patrick!

Wolf Creek: I'm surprised you haven't seen this. It's one of the more high profile Australian movies, it's also Rogue director Greg Mclean's first film. With the sequel coming next year, you may want to see it.

Undead: Another zombie movie........... but it's an Aussie zombie movie! Starring Mungo McKay (yet that's his real name) as Marion, a mysterious man with a cache of guns in the basement, including a triple barreled shotgun! He's the highlight of this film, the way he delivers his lines completely worked for me. If you don't take this film seriously, it could be fun for you. It has a scene where Marion is fishing, and zombie fish start attacking him. I don't know how Aussie humour goes for Americans, but you may like it. Just a fun little movie.

Snowtown: This film is not as fun, a truly disturbing film, yet a true story of one of the worst serial killers in Australia's history. Fantastic acting from the whole cast, especially the killer. This was called The Snowtown Murders in America.

Acolytes and The Horseman: I don't like these as much, but I'll write them down so you can look them up. Acolytes has a creepy Joel Edgerton performance, and The Horseman is a gruesome revenge horror.

You have actually picked very well so far with your choices of Rogue, Black Water and The Loved Ones.

I'll just write some other non-horror films you may like also.

Chopper: Worth watching to see how much Eric Bana transforms himself into one of the most dangerous (and crazy) criminals in Australia. Look up Mark 'Chopper' Reed, you'll see what I mean.

Romper Stomper: Young Russell Crowe as a skinhead. Fantastic movie.

Two Hands: Young Heath Ledger loses 10,000 dollars of mob money and needs to get it back. Weird little gangster movie.

The Proposition: Highly recommend this western by director John Hillcoat, who went on to do The Road and Lawless. It stars Guy Pearce, Danny Huston and Ray Winstone. Pearce is one of three brothers. He is told by the police that to save one brother, he has to kill another. Awesome.

Animal Kingdom: Fantastic gangster movie. This seems to be the movie that got Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises) so many jobs in Hollywood.. He's terrifying. Also stars Guy Pearce and Joel Edgerton.

The Square: A little known film in Australia. Made by the Edgerton brothers (Nash directing Joel acting)

The Castle and Muriel's Wedding: I'm a bit cautious with these two because they have very Australian humour. Aussie favourites everywhere.

The Final Winter and Griff the Invisible: I have to recommend these because my cousin is in both. Me typing this is so i don't feel guilty for leaving them out. The Final Winter is a rugby movie and Griff the Invisable is a superhero love story

Well that's it. I have more up my sleeve if you want any more some other time. I had to go into detail because i wanted the Aussies movies represented appropriately. I won't go in so much detail next time, I promise. :)

I really enjoyed The Big Heat, a noir movie from the 50's with Lee Marvin as a gangster. Also watched The Burning, which wasn't too bad, about a 7/10. It's a bit of a combination of Friday the 13th and Halloween. Both are on YouTube. I've never seen Capote, it's one that got past me.

I love the original Evil Dead movies and normally I'm not too fond of these remakes or "reimaginings" but this new Evil Dead looks pretty damn great. I've said it before and I'll say it again: no CGI and all practical effects is a plus. I'm looking forward to the bloodshed.

Oh, you've GOT to watch the first Sleepaway Camp, seriously. The whole movie is on YouTube, so no excuse! :) Don't look up info about it! Someone will spoil the ending, you really don't want this ending spoiled. :D It's only 84 mins, give it a go.

Downfall is a fantastic film and I wholeheartedly recommend it. The film kind of focuses on Traudl Junge, one of Hitler's secretaries, but Bruno Ganz steals the show as Hitler. The way Hitler is humanised by Ganz is eyeopening, historians have commented on his ability to mimic Hitler's speech perfectly. I study history so this is my kind of movie, but I'm sure you would like it.

I loved Into Darkness. If you couldn't tell by my profile pic. :) I see some problems, but I enjoyed it too much to let them get in the way. I love a good villain, that's also why I like it so much. Cumberbatch is amazing.

I enjoyed 2/3 of TPBTP. The last section is weak. It should of been shorter, with the other two stories extended.

Spring Breakers is a weird movie. I haven't seen anything like it before. James Franco is the definite highlight of the movie as Alien. I have it quite high, but it may drop on my list on re-watch.

Magic Mike: Pretty good, not completely for woman as you may think. Some terribl acting by Alex Pettyfer and whovever it is that plays his sister. Kevin Nash is the worst stripper ever! :D He looked so awkward trying to staying in time in one dance routine. :) 7.5/10

A Face in the Crowd: Just a brilliant movie about a rags-to-riches story and media influences. Great performance by Andy Griffith. 9.5/10.

Monsters University: Not as good as the first in my opinion, but is still fun. Very similar to Revenge of the Nerds.....but with monsters. :)

Arsenic and Old Lace: Brilliant movie! I don't find the humour in older movie very funny' but I was in hysterics for this movie. I think it's my favourite Cary Grant performance. It's also got a great mix of crime and thrills as well. 9.7/10. I don't think it's a ten, but I like it more than A Face in the Crowd, that's why the weird rating. :)

Dracula: Great movie, but I tried hard to keep all the other vampire movies out of my head to so I could see how well done it was. 8.5/10.

Forces of Evil: Great little gangster movie about a lawyer getting in too over his head with gangsters. 8.5/10

Two very different horror movies are World War Z and Maniac. Z has elements of horror, but it's also like an action adventure movie. I personally loved it! I gave it an 8/10. It actually surprised me how tense I was towards the end as well. I was actually clenching my jaw(this never happens with me!). There is also this one woman zombie later in the movie that absolutely creeped me out! You'll know when you see it! :)

Maniac was great also! I loved the first person perspective and the performance by Elijah Wood. It has a great 80's sounding score, and is blood gushingly gory!! It's pretty rough in parts, but I can handle this type of stuff. What I can't handle is movies like Antichrist and A Serbian Film, I'd give Maniac a 7.5/10.

Any thoughts you'd like to share on any of the recent movies you saw, Pete?

I personally think I would prefer what they re-shot for World War Z over what they had originally. Keep an eye out for Matthew Fox, he has a small part because they cut nearly his whole role out of the movie,

The Conjuring: Best horror movie i've seen for a while. Fantastic score that really enhances the creepiness of the film. Fantastic acting, even from the children, who are usually terrible in horror movies(and movies in general).I appreciated that Wan didn't go for cheap scares, and although it didn't make me jump, it was suspenseful. The women in the crowd were scared, actually, the woman next to me couldn't watch half the movie. Oh, and the woman behind me kept saying stuff like 'don't go down there!' or 'slap her mate' :D. Someone even brought a salt shaker into the cinema! When something was scary, he would shake it like a rattlesnake. Sometimes, he actually added to the movie, but most of the time it was just annoying. 9/10, possibly 9.5/10 when I see it again.

The Wolverine: I appreciated that they raised the stakes, made Wolverine vulnerable. I also enjoyed some invetive new twists on some familiar action set pieces. Jackman is still physically impressive despite his age, and I think this is my favourite performance as Wolverine. Pete, when you watch it, keep watching after some of the credits to see some extra footage. It's worth seeing. 8/510.

This is the End: I really enjoyed this movie, but I don't know if I was in the right mood for it at the time. I believe when I see it next time, I'll enjoy it much more. It's still a 8/10 for me. :)

Pacific Rim: I just think Del Toro really shows how Bay should of shot the Transformers movies. Despite most the attacks being at night, with giant beasts thrashing everywhere, I could tell what was happening at all times. However, I think the story could of een a bit better, and I really hate the two "Aussies" in the movie. Why hire an American and Englishmen to play Australians? Their accents are bloody awful! Nearly as bad as Tarantino in Django Unchained. A light 8/10.

Are you going to the cinema soon Pete?

Charlie Hunnam (the SOA guy) is very good at an American accent. It actually threw me off when I heard his natural accent in a Nerdist podcast interview. Iris Elba was fine, because that's actually his accent. :) I can't remember the others.

Why did you like me calling it the cinema? Is it because Americans call it the theater (your spelling)?

Ha! I'm the opposite! If I heard an Aussie say they were going to the theatre, I'd think they were stuck up snobs. When I see a play, that's what we call a theatre. :)

Well, I don't know what to say?! Cool Aussie accent? I'll take it as a compliment. :) Although, if you heard the accent of an Aussie bogan, you may not think it's so awesome. I'll explain what a bogan is if you don't know. :)

There is two types of bogan. They typically have a mullet, a bluey(our singlets), thongs(you call them flip flops), drink way too much beer, and are racist to people from other countries. The other is just the same, but aren't racist, and are more fun to be around. :) when you write bogan in google images, it has good examples. :)

Yeah, I saw your score for Acolytes. I didn't mention it because I felt bad for recommending it. But that was probably the worst on my list.

Can you please tell me more about It's a Disaster? :)

My cousin did the play for Killer Joe ten years ago. I didn't see it because I was too young. :)

I checked out The Truth in Journalism, which is a short with a major character from a franchise. I don't know how much you know, but I'll keep it vague.

A Tale of Two Sisters is good, much better than the remake The Uninvited. I also enjoyed Wasabi for a fun crime movie. I don't understand the hate for this movie.

I was letdown big time by Evil Dead, I don't know if you saw my review on letterboxd, but it's there if you want to see it.

What's brought on all this horror watching Pete? :) Plus most of them are sequels!

What did you think of Halloween 3? I heard it's fun if you don't take it too seriously.

Okay, here we go Pete. :)

Candy: I love the start of this movie. Cornish and Ledger on this ride, enjoying being with each other while a cover of Song to Siren plays. Really brilliant start that has stuck with me. However, the movies is about drugs, so it knocks you from your perch as you're watching. One scene in particular really disturbed me. This movie may not cover any new ground with addiction, but I found it to be a great film. 8.5/10.

Bullet to the Head: The more I thought about this movie, the less I liked it. In fact, it was higher on my list, but I had to move it down. The action is boring (except for the axe fight), the exposition is excessive for a 90 min, no chemistry between leads, a very repetitive score, and it's a very ugly looking film. It was a 6.5/10, but now it's 5/10.

Grave Encounters: It was a well done low budget found footage horror. You can see it on YouTube. It's nothing special, but I found it enjoyable. It's not really a movie I have faith recommending, though. I can see people not liking it. I just found some of the ideas to be creative, not of them scared me, but I appreciated what I saw. 7.5/10.

The Cub: A four minute short film that is a family with a young daughter asking wolves to take their smart daughter to learn the ways of the wild. I think you should check it out, it's an interesting watch. Just write in The Cub short film in google. I watched it at the /Film I think. I don't know how to rate it to be honest. :)

Smashed: Coincidently, Mary Elizabeth Winstead (the lead of Smashed) is the girlfriend of the director of The Cub. She also was a producer. Smashed was great, but some parts felt like they could of been done better. I can't put my finger on it, but some of the addiction problems didn't hit me like they did in Candy. It is still a somewhat powerful, and surprisingly funny movie. A light (I hope that makes sense, I don't want to be breaking down movies .1) 7.5/10.

The Minus Man: Owen Wilson as a serial killer who murders people by putting poison in their drinks. Putting aside what I know about Wilson in comedies, I was actually taking him seriously as this psycho. The movie isn't about death and gore (you don't actually see any bodies, not a spoiler) it's more about exploring what makes him tick as he tries to fit into a little town. What I found funny was that Janeane Garofalo is in this movie as his girlfriend. What's funny is she's also in Clay Pigeons, which has Vince Vaughn (both are in Wedding Crashers) playing a serial killer! Funny connection. I'd give it a 7/10.

The Way, Way Back: This is my favourite movie since we last spoke. It's just a fantastic coming-of-age story of an awkward kid coming out of his shell working at a water park on his holiday. Steve Carell is great playing the arsehole stepfather, while Sam Rockwell must of given one of my favourite performances. He's had more challenging roles, but I just enjoyed every second he was on-screen. The soundtrack is awesome, while also Perfectly suiting the film. I had many laughs, and enjoyed how they presented issues. It's a 9.5/10 for me, I loved it.

Elysium: I haven't set my score in stone for this movie. One thing I know, I was a bit disappointed by Elysium. The story had too many coincidences for me. It all lined up too perfectly. Also, some choices of some character seem stupid to me. Plus a story about a hippo and a bird, is just stupid to me. I heard how people didn't like Jodie Foster. She didn't bother me, but the writing of her character did. I did enjoy Sharlto Copley in his role. I was worried he wouldn't be intimidating as a soldier, but I thought he was quite menacing in his role. Some of the action is fantastic, which bumped the score up from me. It's an 8.5/10 for the moment, but it may go down.

Kick-Ass 2: Another disappointment. I did have high expectations, but I just think their was glaring problems with the film. None of the action surpasses any of the awesome action in the first film. I remember having my mouth wide open while watching many scenes. This one just didn't give me the same reaction. I thought Hit Girl's bike was wasted potential, it dragged too much on Mindy when it should of focused on Hit Girl more. Or at least handled better than it is. It's again an 8.5/10, but this score may also go down. Both Elysium an Kick-Ass let me down a bit, then The Way, Way Back, which I wasn't even going to watch, was such a surprise to me.

I didn't watch Milk Money. I just remember watching it 19 years ago as a young kid. It still in my head how wrong the movie is. You see, these 12 year old kids save their money to hire a prostitute to show her boobs, but instead she falls for one of the kids fathers. It's a very weird movie. 3/10.


I watched Oh, Mr Porter because mattstation has it in his top ten. The movie is about a bumbling fool, who is put in charge of a train station with two other idiots. Comedy ensues. Plus the last part of the movie has some great action considering the age of the film. A solid 7/10 for me.

I like Woody Allen films like Hannah and Her Sisters, Radio Days, Manhattan Murder Mystery, The Purple Rose of Cairo, and Broadway Danny Rose. I'm not a fan of movies like Annie Hall or Manhattan. So, would you still recommend Blue Jasmine to me?

I didn't realise I was watching plenty, but I guess I am when you say it like that! :D I wouldn't count quite a few of them. I watched the oldest "films" in history. Some of them are just two seconds! But they're on flickchart, so I added them what I had trouble with iis just where do I put them?? I decided I have them up above the p.o.s films because how important they are. But even if I liked a film a bit, they didn't go ahead of them. I did like A Trip to the Moon (12 mins) and The Haunted House 7 mins), though.

I also didn't see Seed of Chucky. I just hadn't added it from when I saw it a few years ago.

Wow, I have enjoyed many of my choices Pete! The highlights were The Wave (4.5) The Laughing Policeman (4.5) Lars and the Real Girl, Foreign Correspondent (4.5) Young and Innocent, Blue Jasmine, Searching for Sugar Man (4.5) The Island (1981, 4.5, but it could be seen as a bad movie), The Stuff, and Intermission.

I gave five stars to these movies.

Project Nim
Sergeant York
Ugetsu
Sansho the Bailiff

It's very rare for me to get so many five star films in such a short period of time! Must be choosing wisely.

I was disappointed with the below.

Dead Man Down
Welcome to the Punch
Trance
Runner Runner (don't waste your time, cliche, predictable movie)

Just not for me

Intolerance
Through a Glass Darkly

Yep, I want to see Don Jon and Captain Phillips as well. Don't know when Aussies will get Don Jon, you know, with our annoying release dates.

Gravity is my movie of the year. I just loved how tense it was. I even loved just watching Clooney move about at the start. :)

*************Prisoners spoilers*********
Jackman made the movie for me. However, I would of been fine with a more depressing ending. You could interpret the ending as being possibly depressing, but I would of been fine if there wasn't even a whitsle. It would of been more powerful ending if he gave up everything for his child. I was fine with how it ended, but I like the thought of that ending as well.

I watched Bad Grandpa and Captain Phillips yesterday. I enjoyed both, but Captain Phillips was clearly the better movie. Too bad I was so tired when I watched it. Despite loving it, I was nearly falling asleep several times. I gave it a 4.5/5 on letterboxd. I won't be surprised if Hanks gets nominated for his performance.

Yeah, I really enjoyed Before Midnight. I think it's my favourite of the three. All the conversations have more weight to them because of their history.

I made a new page JUST before the change to the comment section. I made it because some people were having trouble with my page because there is so many comments. However, I had to start using it for a couple days because I couldn't load the comments. Now, it loads one at a time. I would think 20 to 30 at a time would of been fine, but I'm not going to complain. At least I can use my page now. Caesar was great, he was the one who helped me out.

Hey Pete, how's it going? Hope you had a good holidays. :)

Man, I have watched quite a bit. Too much to list all of them. :D I think the highlight has been the 169 minute version of The Act of Killing. Man, what a roller coaster of emotions. 10/10 all day from me.

Had I seen my cousin's movie The Turning the last time we spoke? Anyway, I loved that, but it was bloody long!

I love me crime films. So Prince of the City, directed by Sidney Lumet was the perfect movie for me. The only complaint would be the bloody eyebrows on Treat Williams. :D It's hard for me to take him seriously.

I have knocked 35 movies off my Flickchart top 1000 list of shame. Which...... quite shocked me when I checked right now. :D Only have 78 left. :)

I also loved The Hill, You're Next, Our Hospitality, Dances with Wolves, The Invisible Man, The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, Man Bites Dog, Pickup on South Street, Harakiri, The Swell Season, Au Revoir Les Enfants, Fresh, Naked, The Hot Rock, and Ice Station Zebra

I really liked Raging Bull,the only reason I didn't love it is because there is so much too soak up in it,you can't do it in just one viewing.Scorsese's direction is awesome,the editing(especially in the boxing scene's)is magnificent,and Deniro gave the performance of a lifetime.I'm sure I'll love it on the next viewing.

Why do you think it's a great film?

Edge of Tomorrow is great. My only problem is the ending, which we can discuss at another time. Cruise is great, and has a character that's a bit different to your normal Cruise action character. Blunt is a total badass, and it surprisingly is quite funny. I gave it a 4/5 on Letterboxd, but was very close to giving it a 4.5/5.
