It was pretty good, lighthearted and fun. It's of course a children's film but I still found it entertaining enough. Most importantly the child actor wasn't annoying. Peter O'Toole is good in it, fantastically teethy (I guess they are dentures? lol). Kelly Macdonald makes a warm albeit short appearance, Peter Dinklage does an Irish "accent". Oddest bit of casting I have ever seen has Nicholas Lyndhurst playing a nasty thief. Lassie was played by a dog. Overall I liked it.

Hello, friend. Thanks for the add. I love Roger Rabbit, but I'm really surprised you haven't seen Alien or Ghostbusters.
Alien is one of my top favourite films. I really recommend it! Such a classic, iconic monster movie. But I love monsters and maybe you don't.
Ghostbusters is a fun, goofy, 80's movie. Ghostbusters II wasn't bad either.
Love Die Hard too, though I wonder if you might be like a decade younger than me and not appreciate cheesy 80'sness like I do. *shrug* Everybody likes different stuff. :)

I just heard of The Counselor recently, did you see the trailer for it? It looks like it could be great. I'm also looking forward to Kick-Ass 2, thought the first one was a lot of fun.

I've heard the Lighthouse is great, I've been wanting to go there for a while. I live in Donegal, unfortunately. The Savoy is the only cinema I've been to in Dublin, I was up at Christmas visiting a friend and we decided to go see The Hobbit. It was a much bigger screen than any I've been to in Donegal anyway, so I was fairly impressed! I've heard the IFI is pretty good too, you ever been to it? Well there's War of the Buttons, watched it a lot as a kid, not sure how it'd hold up if I watched it now. My Left Foot, In the Name of the Father and The Butcher Boy (another one I'm not sure of how it'd hold up watching it now). You got any Irish movies you like? I'll check them out if I haven't seen them.

Don't worry about late replies, it's fine!

Yeah, I heard of Death of a Superhero, just never got round to it. I've moved it up my watchlist now, I'll get round to it as soon as I can.

Pacific Rim was a lot of fun! The scale of the Jaegers and Kaiju was really impressive, they looked fantastic and I'm not one to care much about special effects but I thought they were pretty fantastic here. The action is very good, you get a real sense of the weight and size of these things when they fight, it's slow but every blow is delivered with a real forceful bang! I liked the design of the Jaegers and Kaiju as well. It's not without its flaws though, I'd imagine a hell of a lot of time went in to creating these big set pieces and monsters, so they could have polished off the script a bit. There's a few eye-rolling lines (one in particular that felt really cheesy), and the characters are fairly cliche'd and one dimensional. It didn't bother me too much though, I went to see robots fighting monsters and I got that. So I would recommend it, I think you could have a pretty good time with it :) Let me know what you think if you do go and see it.

Sweet! Sounds good, you've got me really excited about it now!

Hey there!

I went into the movie theater hoping for a good cross between Ghostbusters and Men in Black, but no. If it wasn't for Jeff Bridges it would have collapsed instantly and it was nice to see Kevin Bacon in a baddie role again. It had a couple of laughs to it, the 3D was okay and the CGI was pretty weak for a $130 mil budget. All in all a BluRay viewing would suit this film well.

You already saw The World's End? It won't be where I live until August, I think. Was it good? I hope that comedy isn't dead this year!

That's good to know! I feel like Edgar Wright can't go wrong with anything, ever since I watched Spaced, I just knew he was a pop-culture fanatic (maybe even in the ranks of Tarantino). I can't wait to see his take on Ant-Man!

No, I never heard of Life's a Breeze. I checked the trailer out there, it looks interesting, could be good. That's puzzling alright, I don't know why they'd release it along with the blockbusters. It probably won't even turn up here in Donegal.

It's hard to keep track of the ranking system on Flickchart. I mean, once I see a movie I rank it a bit and that's it. Keeping track of so many movies is tough, I make lists on IMDb for that purpose. Anything that's under 2000-1500 rank should be good on my list.

About Woody Allen, I've seen a bunch of his movies and you either like him or you don't. I myself, prefer the ones where he doesn't act in. I'd say my top 5 would be: The Purple Rose of Cairo, Midnight in Paris, Bullets Over Broadway, Manhattan Murder Mystery, Annie Hall.

Nah, I'm still alive, although killing myself doesn't sound that bad after seeing those three disasters. At the very least I should get a medal for surviving them.
The third film is probably less offensive than the second one. But on the other hand it's also way more boring, which makes it worse to sit through, I guess. Instead of the *absolutely hilarious* Autobot twins aka black stereotypes, Dark of the Moon has two gay stereotypes, one of whom wants to be called "Deep Wang" for no good reason whatsoever. The film "ends" with an action scene (I say "ends" because it's AN HOUR LONG) but by then you're already braindead, and why should you care about Shia LaButtfuck anyway? Speaking of Shia LaBeouf, he claims he "saved the world" in the previous films while I'm pretty sure he didn't do anything in those previous films and I'm absolutely certain he did nothing in this film except looking for a job because, y'know, we need so see that. The film's also apparently a Burn After Reading / Coen Brothers reunion, since John Malkovich, Frances McDormand and John Turturro pop up in this, and they're probably only in this film to remind you that they've starred in much better films. And oh, yeah, there are Transformers in there somewhere, I guess.

So sorry man, I just now noticed your comment ^^;
I enjoyed the film, but some more analytic critics might not. I felt it was original enough that the hype would be real, the twist at the end could be both obvious or able to take you by surprise depending on your thought process during the film. I thought the actors did well, all of the characters are interesting but there was one character they didn't quite tie up properly so the film is flawed and has a loose end. It's a good, new idea, executed fairly well. I'd recommend it.
Hope that helps ^^;

The Place Beyond the Pines was pretty damn good, I thought. Judging from how you ranked the film, it seems like you didn't care much for it, but I thought it was great. It became a bit unrealistic in the last act with some contrived drama added in, but it was effective drama nonetheless. Well acted, well directed, pretty good soundtrack. It'll probably appear in my top 10 of this year, unless I see some films that are as good as the Transformers films are bad. But what did you think of The Place Beyond the Pines? Also, great to see Seven Psychopaths in your top 20. That was hands down my favorite film of last year, I think it's hilarious.

Oh it's a shame you thought Monsters University was not as good as it could have been. I'll see it eventually and give you my opinion, but at least from the trailer I agree some of the jokes seem clichéd. As for Brave I have seen it and I didn't like it too much. It starts off quite strongly but then trails off really badly in my opinion, the ending is poor. I did like the Scottish setting and accents haha, I sometimes think animated films should have more international flair like Brave. I haven't seen Man of Steel yet, I'm actually planning a binge of superhero movies. I'm really far behind, the Avengers series of films has largely passed me by.

Wha? The hell is that? That is the most bizarre yet most awesome imaginable film duo since Jeff Bridges + Clint Eastwood in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot. No, wait, Woody Allen and John Turturro? That's weird, man. But anyway, the film. This looks like it could be really good or really, really, really bad. I don't know if John Turturro's a good director and writer or not, but we'll see. I'm convinced that he's a good actor (just watch any of the Coens' films he starred in), but he's also the guy who proposed a The Big Lebowski sequel revolving around his character. Maybe he turned that idea into this film, who knows. Woody Allen is no James Lipton, though. You can't simply just imitate Lipton's smooth-ass voice. Takes years of practice. Good find though. Now I have to find something equally as bizarre.

Who doesn't like to ramble about nothing?

Nope, I haven't, and I don't know if I will. The buzz has been very good, so I'll probably give it a watch when it comes out on blu-ray or somethin'. I don't know if I can call myself a Woody Allen fan. I loved Midnight in Paris, but I kind of disliked Annie Hall. "*Gasp*", I know, but I just didn't really care for it. And Woody Allen's character was just whiny in my opinion. I do want to give s his other films a shot, though. Is Manhattan Murder Mystery for example worth watching if I didn't like (Woody Allen in) Annie Hall? Recommendations? Suggestions? Advice? Eh?

And are there still some films you're looking forward to this year?

About Half Baked. I guess it's your average stoner comedy, one of those movies that's made up by a single person, that being Chapelle. It had a couple of laugh (Jon Stewart), but I hate comedy films where cameos of celebs are the funniest things in the movie and the rest is just lame jokes. This is what I get for trying to look up 'comedy' films with decent ratings.
What I really should do is re-watch Charlie Wilson's War, I've seen it 5 years ago and it just didn't click back then, but then again I had no idea who Mike Nichols was.

Wall of text. Sorry in advance if it bothers you.

Alrighty then. I think I'll definitely give Blue Jasmine a shot now that I've seen a trailer and finally know what it's about. Looks good, and it's refreshing to see Cate Blanchett use her own voice after Lord of the Rings and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Or I guess I haven't seen any film starring Cate Blanchett other than those.

Don Jon does look pretty damn good.
The Counselor...huh. How come I've never heard of this? Pretty amazing cast, written by the author of No Country for Old Men, Ridley Scott...damn. I must see this. I've decided that Cameron Diaz looks scary. And Javier Bardem funny no matter what haircut you give him.
The Wolf of Wall Street looks absolutely fantastic. Directed by Martin Scorsese and written by the guy who wrote 50 Cent: Bulletproof, the videogame. Alright, that's mean, he wrote a lot of Boardwalk Empire and The Sopranos episodes (but, still, he did write the story for that videogame). Leonardo diCaprio is awesome in the trailer. I have to wait till next year to see the film though. That sucks, because the film looks spectacular.
The Fifth Estate looks good, but it's directed by the guy who did the last two Twilight films, so I'm not completely sold by it. But he also did a few really good films, so who knows how this will turn out. Looks a bit Oscar-baity, but it does look decent.
Inside Llewelyn Davis. I love the Coens. And hey, it's F. Murray Abraham. Nice.
The Hobbit 2....ehhhhhhh. Doesn't look that good to me. Jackson has to stop with all this pointless fan service and give us an actual great movie. The first Hobbit wasn't that great (I liked it, though), but this one looks worse. Legolas and Radagast are back. I don't like that.
Oh, wow. Talk about a trailer that does give everything away. It's literally Saving Mr. Banks in a nutshell, why bother seeing it? Seems to me that they made this film to get people interested in the Mary Poppins Blu-Ray which has a release around the same time as the film. So, what, this year we had Google: The Movie, Apple: The Movie and now Mary Poppins: The Blu-Ray: The Movie? My (somewhat unfair) cynicism aside, I'm not interested. I hate how blatantly commercial films are these days. Well, The Internship, at least.
...Life Magazine: The Movie?! Heh. I haven't read the book, and I don't know what to think about the film.

As for me, other than The Wolf of Wall Street, Inside Llewelyn Davis and now The Counselor, not much, actually. I'll go with Gravity, The World's End (Mid-september release over here), Ender's Game *maybe*, Snowpiercer *maybe* (ANOTHER "Earth is shit"-film, but it does look pretty good. I doubt it will get a major release in my country, though), and Anchorman 2 (although again, I don't get to see that film until next year. Shit.)

And yes, I saw Shaun of the Dead. I liked it, although probably for the wrong reasons. You see, I didn't find it all that funny. But I thought it was really, really damn well directed. Edgar Wright has talent, man. But his humor doesn't really appeal to me, it seems. I didn't laugh much at this, or Hot Fuzz, or Scott Pilgrim. But I did like it, I just didn't find it that funny. That's opposite logic, but whatever. I still really want to check out The World's End, though.

I'm from The Netherlands. Y'know, that country with the windmills, the cheese, the liquorice, the tulips, the wooden clogs, the drugs, the chocolate sprinkles as sandwich topping, the stroopwafels and stuff? You've probably heard of it.

Yeah, I would recommend Anchorman. It's one of the funnier comedies I've seen in recent years. It's not THE funniest film I've seen (that title belongs to Black Dynamite), but it does have a lot of big laughs in it nonetheless. Steve Carell especially is glorious. Just glorious. It doesn't really embrace the 70s style enough, I think. In fact, I didn't know it was set in the 70s. Looking back though, I am an idiot. Black Dynamite on the other hand does embr--you know what, whatever, just watch both Anchorman and Black Dynamite, they're awesome.

I would watch Partridge from the beginning, in order. You would probably like one of his earliest tv appearances, on The Day Today, the spoof news show that featured Chris Morris. Partridge started on there as a sports reporter, if you search 'alan partridge football' on youtube you can see some of it. The whole show was great though.
Then I think it was Knowing Me, Knowing You and I'm Alan Partridge series 1 & 2. I need to catch up with the stuff he's done after that. :)

Dude, you've never seen the original versions in proper HD without any added CGI crap? The Star Wars Depecialized editions. Google that shit. There are some awesome fan projects out there that completely destroy the official releases, even in terms of quality.


The extended cuts aren't that bad. Most scenes added in Fellowship are pointless, but it does have a much better, way less awkwardly edited intro to Hobbiton. The rest of the scenes are just sort of there; they don't ruin anything, but you can tell why they were cut, as they weren't that important to the plot.
The extended cut of Two Towers adds a bunch of scenes with character development which I liked, most of which make the Aragorn - Eomer relationship and the relationship Faramir had with his father and brother more interesting.
Aside from the fate of Saruman (which is simply glossed over in the theatrical cut) and a flashback with Boromir, the extended cut of RotK is probably the worst. Most of the added stuff is either really dumb, ruins a cliffhanger or is too long and pointless. But eh, those two scenes make it worth it.

Ah, no that's a mistake.....I haven't seen Charlie Wilson's War, or The Simpsons Movie, and I'm not sure why they're on my chart.
It's happened before, I've had to delete films because I didn't know how they got on there! I also rarely look at the end of my chart. I'll take a look tomorrow and clean up the movies I haven't seen!

Oh I notice you saw Elysium, I haven't seen it yet, what did you think?

The Despecialized editions are candy for your eyes. Or, well, candy that used to taste good before they completely changed it. They're my preferred ways of watching the trilogy.

The Frozen Ground? Yeah, eh, it was alright. Nothing spectacular. The three leads (Nicolas Cage, John Cusack and Vanessa Hudgens) were all between good and very good. It seems like Hudgens is desperately trying to escape from typecasting with this role (she plays a prostitute), her role in Springbreakers, some of her previous roles and her upcoming roles (including Machete Kills). What's with all these Disney princesses trying to avoid typecasting? Eh, just an observation. As for the rest of Frozen Ground, it was okay. Very early on you know who the killer is because the movie just shows you, but the movie remains fairly suspenseful and interesting, which is somewhat impressive. Decent direction, decent score, decent everything. The only thing I didn't like was that it had a quote on the poster saying "At last a suspense/thriller to rival SE7EN." If you've seen Se7en, you know that this film doesn't even come close in quality. Cheap marketing ploy. And oh yeah, Nicolas Cage needs to get his shit together, because he's slowly drifting into direct-to-DVD territory, and I don't like that.

Thoughts on the 1994 Academy Award thief? Thoughts on that Airplane flick? Thoughts on the meaning of life?

I loved District 9, I'd definitely recommend it.

Yeah, I'd never really thought about it, but Matt Damon does have a great success rate with his movies doesn't he!

I was a bit shocked at Ben Affleck's casting, but I'm not totally against it or anything, I'll give him a chance, he could surprise us.
There's a fan-made teaser trailer for Man of Steel 2 on youtube, search 'man of steel 2 teaser trailer Ben Affleck Bryan Cranston' if you're interested. I thought it was really good.
I'm excited that Bryan Cranston has been cast as Lex Luthor, I think he's pretty much perfect for that role. :)

I'm a spoilerphobe myself so I would never give anything away about Breaking Bad. I am up to date with it and talk about it with Shane on here but we always put spoiler warnings in our posts.
I'll just say it gets better and better. It's probably one of the best tv drama series I've ever seen, the quality is consistent each series and I'm enjoying the final season so much. :)

I did! I thought it was solid. Michael Parks really stood out, I've heard some people say his monologue in the church went on too long, but I found it engrossing. He was great in this. The second half was a complete tonal shift, I'm not sure if that worked too well. However, it was entertaining throughout so I can't complain. Very enjoyable film, cheers for the recommendation!

Yeah, Broken Flowers was... different. I liked it though, Bill Murray is very good in it and it had some wonderfully bizarre moments.

I hate this comment system. My original comment didn't get submitted. Now I have to write everything all over again. Poor me.

I like Forrest Gump. I'm much more of a Shawshank kinda guy, but I thought it was pretty darn good. I may like it more than BttF Part 3 and possibly even WFRR, though.

I thought Airplane was meh. There were some funny jokes, but it's just really the Scary Movie of the late seventies / early eighties. That's why I like The Naked Gun so much more, because it wasn't a straight parody (although it certainly had elements of parody in it).

I'm not familiar with the works of Tom Waits. Time to change that.

Moulin Rouge sucks. Egh. It's cut cut cut cut bad cover cut cut cut love cut cut cut extreme close-up cut cut cut love love love bad cover cut cut cut love. Cutcutcutcutcut. Headache inducing. And Ewan McGregor can't sing. I don't get Baz Luhrmann's appeal.

I hate big cities. Paris is a good example. The air is shit, there's a homeless / begging / poor / whatever guy on every corner of the street, people constantly dangle plastic Eiffel towers in your face, people shove a piece of paper in your face to sign it while pretending to be deaf, people tie a string to your finger and then intimidate you to pay them, con artists, pickpockets, all that crap. I don't care about tourist attractions, just leave me alone. Someone should start a political party or somethin'. Anti-Scam Party, that sounds right. End of rant.

I thought Adaptation was great! It was funny, smartly written and Nicolas Cage gave a terrific performance. In fact, it might be my favorite performance of his. I've heard Charlie Kaufman is a great writer, this is the second film I've seen of his, and so far he hasn't disappointed. The other Kaufman film I've seen is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, which I think I prefer a little over Adaptation, but they're both really great.

Ain't them Bodies Saints looked interesting, any good?

You're telling me, I had to hear a lot of boloni coming from the theater "attendees" (whom I presumed would prefer some shit like Grown Ups 2 rather than Elysium), when they don't even know the immense possibilities of Blomkamp. Jodie Fosters character was alright, it couldn't possibly steal the show, but Sharlto Copley's speech was awesome...I couldn't stop laughing! And Matt Damon is...well Matt Damon, always delivers the best performance!
The critics bashed it pretty hard, but they were harsh to almost everything this year (unless it's some indie..). District 9 was awesome, it had to sink in a few months before I could get how great it was.

World War Z really surprised me. When I saw the trailer I just thought this was going to be bad, nothing special, but no. There weren't that many zombie pile-ups (with twitchy CGI) like in the trailer and that's a good thing. Brad Pitt gave a great performance, especially the final half-hour. I've amazed that it turned up to be good after all the re-writting it had to go through.
I say if you like post apocalyptic/zombie movies, you should watch it.

There's a site make-over in the works, so I think we can just leave Zampa alone. Unless the new comment system turns out to be as unreliable as this one.

I know a lot of people who prefer the third over the second Back to the Future. For me, my reaction to the third one was "alright, guys, nice try, but it's not funny anymore. Can you stop please? Stop? No? Alright...". That whole "same actor / actress playing a different family member" thing just got on my nerves. I didn't mind it in the second one, but in the third one I just got tired of it. I get why people hate the second one ("hey guys, it's the same movie, 'xcept it's in the future! Remember this classic scene from the first one? Remember this classic scene from the first one? Remember this classic scene from the first one? Remem--" etc.), but I do get a lot of enjoyment out of it. The first one is miles ahead, but the second one is still pretty damn entertaining, I think. The third one is just tiresome. I dunno, maybe I should give it a rewatch. As for WFRR, it didn't really click with me when I watched it. I liked it, but something, just, I dunno.
And yeah, I've seen Flight. Aside from Denzel Washington's performance (and a few scenes with John Goodman), not that good. Really long and really boring. And there was a subplot having to do with religion that didn't go anywhere and it also felt really forced. It's meh. Better than Polar Express, I'll say that.

I've checked out some of Tom Waits' songs. I'm not a fan, I'm afraid. I like his jazzier stuff, but his experimental, psychopathic stuff doesn't seem to appeal to me. A logical question would then be "what does?" and honestly, I'm not really sure. I like a lot of 80s (hard) rock songs (Summer of '69, Livin' on a Prayer, Welcome to the Jungle, We Built This City, all that stuff) and I like classical music, I guess. I don't really have a favorite artist, but I like Sting / The Police a lot, probably because my parents listened to his / their CDs endlessly.

Big cities do have their positive sides, ofcourse they do, but for me, the negatives outweigh the positives. Maybe I don't have the appreciation for them because I've never lived in one, who knows (unless Rotterdam counts as a big city, but I lived there for only one year...and I was a baby. So, yeah).

Thanks for the thoughts. I'm also a fan of Casey Affleck, I loved him in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.

Annie Hall was, indeed, an enjoyable experience! For a 36 year old film, it feels so incredibly fresh. It's filled with great moments, the scene at the cinema being one of my favorites. Alvy was an interesting, funny and at times even annoying character, but a memorable one for sure.

You watched Rushmore! Some people really hate that movie, but I love it. Thoughts?

I wouldn't necessarily recommend it. It's watchable. Yeah, it's got that typical Kev Smith wit in it, particularly in the first half, but it's a lot less subversive and a lot more formulaic than his other stuff. At it's worst it's every bit as cloying as Chasing Amy. But, yeah, it's watchable. Or maybe I liked it more than I should because I like the cast and basically want to smash Lizzy Banks' ass in vagina into one amorphous glob. Could be that.

Howdy, whatever your real name is. ;) I personally loved The Way, Way Back. I went to the city to see Kick-Ass 2 and Elysium. I watched The Way, Way Back, you know, just because I had some free time. Yet I ended up loving it more than the other two by a long way. Everything worked for me. The soundtrack, the humour, the performances. Everything just fell in line perfectly for me. I'd have to say it's one of my favourite Sam Rockwell performances.

What did you think of Perrier's Bounty? I just watched it one day on pay tv without knowing anything about it! Every bloody line that Jim Broabent had made me laugh. :) Plus it must be a rule that Brendan Gleeson has to appear in these similar crime movies.

Yeah Idiocracy was good, not sure why it never got that full theatrical release. "Scientific" and philosophical plot combined with many cheap laughs, it certainly kept me entertained.

I only saw We're the Millers because when I arrived at the cinema it was revealed my friend had seen nearly everything on offer. I was pleasantly surprised and liked it quite a lot. Good and clever combination of word play and "gross out" humour, none of which I will spoil in case you do watch it. There is also some good camera work and angles in a few scenes which is surprising in what is essentially a "point camera at funny people" film.

Yes I was familiar with the Jeniffer Aniston scene before watching the film. Having seen the film I can say I'm more of an Emma Roberts fan now, I'd never heard of her before this.

I think critics are pulling for an anti-mainstream movement by bashing blockbusters (although some do need a good whipping). In this age there seem to be a lot of comic-book adaptations (which I enjoy) and maybe because of that huge amount they are being judged more severely. Same goes for sci-fi. I really wish they'd make more war films and westerns, though and less of the so-called R-rated "comedies".
If it's not a book adaptation, then it has plot holes, right? Or another common thing...the 'lack' of character development (just what critics said about 'Man of Steel' for example).
...Anyway I try not to be let down by what the critics say, especially when I'm hyped about a particular movie.

For me, the movie this week will be Riddick. I quite like the first two, not the best, but watchable and more importantly, entertaining.

No, I like Chasing Amy, mostly. It just gets too sentimental for me at times. That whole scene with them screaming at one another in the rain... eugh. No, too much heart for me. When movies try to be *enlightening* I frequently get a little suspicious. It can feel like I'm being condescended to.

Anyway, it goes:

Mallrats
Clerks
Dogma
Clerks II
Jay & Silent Bob
Chasing Amy
Zack and Miri
Jersey Girl
Cop Out
Red State

A wide gulf in quality here, but Red State is the only one I would just straight up refuse to sit through again. Damn, was that film boring.

Oh yeah, I'm a big fan of Irish movies as well. I've got The Wind that Shakes the Barley recorded for someday, and I've also got Grabbers to watch, which gaveecho recommended off your recommendation if I recall.

Perrier's Bounty is in line with movies like In Bruges, but, like you said, it has it's own unique flavour. Fantastic movie.

I was a bit disappointed by Kick-Ass 2 and Elysium to be honest. They were my most anticipated movies of the year, but both fell flat for me. Kick-Ass 2 has no action scenes that better, or even equal any from the first movie.

Elysium never let me just sink into the movie. I was always aware I was watching a movie if you get my meaning. Things that happen in the movie felt very coincidental for me. Everything just keeps falling into place nicely, so I was always aware. I also question what was actually achieved at the end, but I will leave it at that because I didn't check whether you'd seen it.

They both are 3 1/2 star films, but they could of been better. I've had them high on my list (equivalent to a 4/5) to see how I feel about the placements. I've decided now they will drop.

How do you feel about Wes Anderson films? For me, I can't laugh very often at his movies, just not my sense of humour. For me, I only enjoyed Moonrise Kingdom and Fantastic Mr. Fox (haven't seen all of them).

I'm glad you like Wes Anderson, but most of it doesn't work for me to be honest. I like parts of Royal Tenenbaums and Rushmore, but they really aren't for me. Not having a go, just being honest. Bottle Rocket had nothing I liked, I didn't get what was funny about it. Which is fine, it's just not my Snead of humour. Obviously it works for so many people, so the humour is just not my cup of tea. I like weirder comedy, like Vampire's Kiss. :)

Yeah, I thought it was great! Such an impressive directorial debut from Affleck, I think it's my favorite movie of his now. Casey Affleck is terrific, between this and The Assassination of Jesse James he's given two incredible performances that I loved and would put alongside my favorite performances of all time. It's got a strong supporting cast also, everyone plays their part very well. Ben does great behind the camera, some scenes are loaded with tension and he did great to keep that 'surprise' well hidden without it coming off as cheap. The ending presents a very interesting moral dilemma that lingered in my mind long after finishing the film. So, Gone Baby Gone does what it set out to do and then some.

So, you got anything interesting lined up to watch soon? :)

There is/was a HMV store in Derry that has/had a much better selection, but I'm not even sure it it's still open, it's been that long since I was there. Derry is a bit too far away for me to be traveling to, too often. Anyway, I was reading that my local Xtra-vision will be integrating with HMV! I'm hoping that when that happens, the kind of selection offered in the Derry HMV will be offered at the Letterkenny one. That'd make me one happy nerd, man! :)

****** The World's End Spoilers ********

'Twas pretty fucking great, man! I was gonna give you my thoughts on it, just hadn't got the chance 'til now. I'd put it a little behind Shaun of the Dead, but ahead of Hot Fuzz. Such an entertaining movie. It's funny and the action is very well done. Pegg's character was a little bit of an ass at times, but he was still a likable, relatable guy. In fact, all the characters were likable. I would've been content with a movie about these guys doing a pub crawl and having a bit of crazy fun on the way. Of course, the alien's and whatnot made it a hell of a lot more entertaining and interesting, I'm just saying that the characters are so good that a simple pub crawl probably would've been enough to entertain me. These guys going back to their hometown to finish something they weren't able to in their youth was also surprisingly nostalgic. The whole movie is just so much fun, I was entertained from beginning to end and it never got boring for a second. I'm actually really looking forward to seeing it again when it comes out on DVD/Blu Ray :)

Oh yeah, and how awesome was Andy turning into Rambo after a few drinks? I thought that was absolutely brilliant! :)

The thing that I found weird was that the negotiations between the head office and the pirates took several months. And also they didn't show how the pirates attacked the ship, they just cut to the scene with them on it all of a sudden.

Oh, that sounds awesome (even though my comment is this late, sorry 'bout that). So it's a comedian forced to do something in real life? I love that kind of stuff. Have you ever seen Kenny vs. Spenny? It's two guys facing each other in various unbelievable competitions. For example, in one episode, the challenge is "who can wear a gorilla suit the longest". Another is "Who Can Wear A Dead Octopus On Their Head The Longest?". Even if it was (secretly) scripted (which wouldn't surprise me), it was still hilarious stuff. You can find all episodes on YouTube, it's an overlooked comedy television gem. I'll watch some episodes of An Idiot Abroad, looking at some clips and your description I'm thinking it's totally my cup of tea.

My thoughts on Paul are pretty much the same as yours. Funny and enjoyable, but not up there with the cornetto trilogy. I actually watched Paul before I seen any Arrested Development. I've only been watching Arrested Development recently (on season 3 at the minute), and I'm loving it. It would've been very odd seeing Michael Bluth try to be intimidating had I watched AD before Paul! It's been a while since I've watched Paul, but I remember that I did like Jason Bateman in it.

This is the End is another film I've been meaning to get round to watching. Thoughts?

I love it so I do! I'm in the middle of season 3 right now and I think it's fantastic stuff. Early on I thought they were gonna make Buster the 'idiot' character, but he's so much more than that. All the characters actually have their moments in my opinion. Most shows usually have at least one character you wouldn't be bothered with, but I really do enjoy all of them. It's got so many genuinely laugh out loud moments and some of the running jokes are great.

I've heard some say the fourth season isn't as good as the others though, have you seen it? I'll still be watching it, I'm just curious to hear your thoughts on it if you've seen it.

It's a good watch, especially if your just looking for a fun time at the movies and nothing more. The screenplay got on my nerves as did the pacing and some of the places the film explored, but overall I enjoyed it. 7.5/10.

Glad you liked the fourth season, I'm a bit more excited for it myself now. I certainly get what you're saying about the magnified criticisms these days. I think The Dark Knight Rises might've been a victim of that, it had some problems alright, but I still loved the hell out of it. I didn't think the problems were near as big as what some people were saying, but hey, 'tis all subjective I suppose.

On an Arrested Development movie, if they can make it work then great. I love the short format for the episodes at the minute and I think it works great like that. As long as it doesn't just feel like a long drawn out episode and manages to be as funny as the show, then I think it'd be fantastic. You got any thoughts on it?

Insomnia was a very solid film. When discussing Chris Nolan's weakest movie, Insomnia is one I often hear come up so I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. I thought Pacino was good in it, as was Robin Williams. The setting was great, it reminded me of Twin Peaks for some reason. I suppose the problems were that it didn't really do anything exceptional, at times it seemed to be just going through the motions. For the most part though, it entertained me and had me questioning wether or not he meant to shoot his partner. I don't think he did in the end up. It's probably my least favorite Nolan movie, but still better than I expected. What do you think of Insomnia?

Oh yeah, I only today noticed that you followed me on Letterboxd. I haven't logged on in a while, but I followed you back there today. I must get round to reading a few of your reviews!

Ah!

I've never read that, so I don't know how to feel 'bout it. One thing that's sure is that J.K. Rowling means Harry Potter, Harry Potter means a lot of cash, and a lot of cash means "YOU GUYZ WE CAN'T STAHP HERE WE NEED MOREEEE MOREEEE IT'S MONEY COMING OUT OF A TAP DON'T TURN IT OFF LODS OF EMONE". The last film is the fourth most grossing film of all time, with all other films having a spot in the top 50, which also makes it the most financially succesful franchise as well. So it makes total sense for Warner Bros to film anything J.K. Rowling has ever touched. Loadsa money.

RoboCop remake? Fuck that. That's not RoboCop, that's like if the Iron Man suit and the Batman suit had a baby. And a car bomb? Yeah, right. And a PG-13 rating...that's just wrong. You don't remake RoboCop and then slap a PG-13 rating on it.

E.T.? It's really good. My favorite Spielberg flick after Raiders and Last Crusade, probably (although to be honest, I haven't seen much from Spielberg). It's probably the most kid friendly Spielberg film I've seen, but it's really good stuff, definitely worth a watch. Better than Jurassic Park and Jaws. I said it.

Super's also pretty damn good. Ellen Page is awesome in it. She's basically playing a 22-year old who acts like a sadistic little kid, it's great. And Kevin Bacon is the villain. Sounds amazing, amirite? And it is. The film i's not as good as E.T. ofcourse, but it's still worth checking out.

I was pretty lucky in my cinema. The old people that thought it was fine to talk were on the far side away from me. The people around me were very good, I was glad! :)

Can you please tell me what some of your annoyances in the cinema are? I'm not a violent guy, but when annoyed, I use my height (6'6) to my advantage. Like when there was three loud guys were sitting up the back talking during the previews. I was the only other person in the cinema, so one of them decided to throw something at my head. It skimmed me, and kept going. All it took from me was to turn my head to the wall to the right, then partly looked over my shoulder, for, let's say a minute. Not only was there nothing else thrown, but they shut up until they left the cinema.

Loved Blue Jasmine! I loved that the flashbacks were not only informing us of the past, but were having an effect on Jasmine as well! :D We cut back to her, and she's talking in the streets to herself! Brilliant! Also brilliant was Cate Blanchett in her role! I gave it 4/5 on letterboxd, but I am debating about putting it higher. I'm actually watching her in a movie today as well! It's called The Turning. I'm watching it because my cousin is in it, I'm very excited! :) Not sure how big her part is yet, but I don't really give a shit. :D


I have a review of Runner Runner up on letterboxd if you care to read it. I guarantee you have seen a movie like Runner Runner before, but done better. It's so derivative of other movies, but brings nothing to the table to make it worth watching. 2/5 on letterboxd.

RoboCop is one of my favorite films. It's excellent social satire, but it's also really entertaining. And it has the dad from That 70's Show (Kurtwood Smith) as the villain. I mean, c'mon, that's awesome. Yeah, I do highly recommend it. Don't expect the next Godfather or somethin', because some of the performances are a little blah and some of the effects look pretty cheap nowadays, but it is still one of the most insanely entertaining movies I've ever seen. It's a flawed classic. (Does that even make sense?)

I'd say it's a fun sequel. It's not on the same level as the original, but it does have some laugh out loud moments and it does have some pretty good action scenes. It tends to get a lot of shit, but it's really not that bad. RoboCop 3 is worth avoiding though. I haven't seen it, but whereas RoboCop 2 does have its fans, RoboCop 3 seems to be unanimously hated, and that's the point in the franchise where the producers said "RoboCop is for kids! Let's make some toys!"

Yeah, those things you mentioned would annoy me to, man. So I assume people on their phones is a huge annoyance, yes?

Ha, a Walter White comparison?! I'll take it. :D I do warn people, though. Sometimes it's several times! But when they don't get what trouble they're in, then I show exactly what situation they're in. Like my friend, he kept pissing me off, saying shitty things to annoy me. I warned him, I'd say, five time, yet he kept pushing it. Then I ran at him, grabbed him by the jumper, lifted him off the ground, and then slammed him into the wall. I then started yelling in his face. But to be honest, I'm too nice sometimes.. I let him go, but he didn't bother me for the rest of the day, and didn't talk to me for a week. :)

^ I think the above is a good example of the way I would also act in the cinema to annoying people. I take shit for a while, but I have a breaking point, then I make up for it. :)

My cousin is in a few movies, but her real passion is to write and star in plays. She's one of the top playwrights in Australia. Her most accessible role for you would be The Great Gatsby, she plays Ms MsKee. It's a small role, but she got to act with Tobey McGuire, Joel Edgerton and Isla Fisher. It was a busy few days for her! She was acting on-stage in Hamlet in Brisbane, so she had to fly to Sydney to do her scenes for the day. The next day she was back on the plane back to Brisbane to do two more shows of Hamlet.

Here's a link to her imdb page.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2078666/?ref_=sr_1

When you have five minutes, I highly recommend you read the transcript below for when the ABC interviewed her about her life story. She's the strongest person I know, check it out. :)

Oh, back to Runner Runner and Affleck. I would say that Affleck was the best part of the film, so you can keep your hopes up for Batman. His part is very cliche, but I think he did pretty good with the material. But this movie just feels like a movie from his past when he chose his roles poorly. I assume the pay cheque and the filming location were very appealing to him.

Hey! Yeah I have watched a fair few movies lately :) I'm hoping to make a third trip to the cinema to see Prisoners this week as well.

Paul was entertaining, I liked it but it didn't really wow me, I've seen better from Pegg and Frost.

I loved Django Unchained, my friend let me borrow it and after I gave it back, I went and bought my own copy, that's how much I liked it. Great soundtrack and performances. I just wish Tarantino hadn't cast himself in the film, that was the only low point for me, due to his crap Aussie accent!

Rush was awesome, I am a fan of F1 so am not sure if that influences my enjoyment, but I think that those who know nothing of the sport would get a kick out of it too. I didn't witness the Hunt/Lauda rivalry but know the history, yet I was still on the edge of my seat at the end of the film.
I thought Bruhl and Hemsworth were stunning in the film, Bruhl was outstanding in particular, and deserves to be nominated for some best actor awards. Some parts were actually tough to watch. I thought Ron Howard did a great job with the movie.

What's the best movie you've seen lately? Is there anything you're looking forward to seeing at the cinema?

I had a woman this weekend have her phone on in the cinema. It went off twice. Both times she took the call. She walked past me talking.

Ha, I've been asked to be a bouncer once before, but I'm too nice for that type of work. No, it's probably for the best that you don't do anything to the kids and elderly that annoy you. I specifically target guys that are acting cool in front of their friends.

She doesn't really look like Anna Gunn. It's probably the angle of the pic. She played Gail in The Turning. She was the younger version of Cate Blanchett. Her part finishes the movie. I would say to you to be quick mate, people will start blurting out what happens in Breaking Bad soon. It's a small part in Griff the Invisible. She did give me the biggest laugh in the movie, though. Her biggest roles are in The Final Winter, Underbelly: The Man who Got Away. Where she shines is on stage. Some of the performances she has given ripped me apart. The Seed especially. Her play called The Web has one of the best twists I've seen. The way she revealed to the audience was so bloody terrific. I really appreciate you reading the article, thank you. Now you see why she's the toughest person I know. Kate is my first cousin, but I have some distant relatives that I only found out about this year that still shock me! :D You will have to guess. Think of a person in a position of power. Let's see how you go. :)

Haha! I think your teacher should of saved his money. I don't think I'd want to show my "part" to anyone if it's all blurry! Theory benefit would be if he got to meet someone like Nic Cage or Ben Mendelssohn.

Hey there, sorry again for the incredibly late response. I really need to get on here more...
Anyway...

1. I was a huge fan of the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy as a tv series and was ecstatic when a movie came out. I actually saw that quite a while back when it first premiered, and somehow I forgot to add it or it wasn't on the site at the time I tried. But I thought the comedy and characters were just as great if not better than the series. The show has had some hour-long specials as well, but none of them really compare to the full-length film. I guess we can call Wrath of the Spider Queen the runner-up though.

2/3. I'll put the Garfield movies together just by stating that I greatly prefer Fun Fest. I really liked the premise of Garfield going on a sort of quest to find his comedy, and the things that happened along the way I thought were delightful. Gets Real...I just didn't see a point to it.

4. I actually saw this quite a ways back too and forgot to add it. I've really only seen the first half-hour or so, where all the characters are introduced. But I very much love how that sequence is done, and I've loved Wes Anderson as a director all the more since Fantastic Mr. Fox came out. I really should try to go back and watch Tenenbaums all the way through, as well as catch his more recent film Moonrise Kingdom.

Hope those are the kind of responses you were looking for. Sorry once again for taking so long.

I'm not huge into TV, but I do watch some show obsessively like you. Breaking Bad being my favorite, I'm not sure if you're caught up so I'll say nothing about it! Love Arrested Development, Sherlock and Twin Peaks (which I've only started a few weeks ago) too. I also really liked the first few seasons of Community, it has one of the best episodes of any short-format, comedy/sitcom I've ever seen: the paintball episode. It's awesome, I'd recommend it if you never watched it before. The later seasons are a little stale & not as funny, but the first few are solid!

Um, let me think....some parts of The Wizard of Oz scared me. Like the witch's face appearing saying 'Aunty Em', or the monkeys things attacking them.

Milo & Otis! Have you seen it? As a kid, that's a scary movie! The voices of some of the animals freaked me out! It's one of my first movie memories.

I will think of more maybe. But what about the whole E.T walkie-talkie problem? You know how Spielberg took the shotgun out? Well, do do think they don't give enough credit to what kids can handle? Shit, even when I was younger I would be thrilled by a scare, it drew me into the movie. Now they just want to cotton wool kids until they have to learn harsh realities in one huge hit.

A show that was good for me I think was The Animals of Farthing Wood. Have you heard of it? Well, shit, did that kids cartoon leave me sad at deaths of the animals. Animals that I spent years following. Yet, it makes you more stronger, more prepared I feel.

Ooh, I probably shouldn't of watched it, but IT!! When I saw the guy look back and the person's face was green and melting....man, oh man did that stick in my head. Now, it doesn't bother me. But I still appreciate how it made me feel at the time.

You overestimate what I think about you not yet seeing The Wizard of Oz......joking! I want to murder you!! It's fine mate, I have movies that I should of seen as well.

The Adventure of Milo & Otis is the story of a farm pug and cat who get lost and need to find their way back. Along the way, they encounter all types of trouble from other animals, including a bear and a fox. The whole time, a guy is narrating the voices for the animals. Some of his voices for animals like the owl just creeped me out as a kid.

This isn't a big spoiler by the way, but to edit walkie-talkie in place of a shotgun, just doesn't sit well with me. It did annoy me that the edited version was shown on tv instead of the original. Spielberg has come to regret the change now.

Oh, I might of seen Partysaurus Rex myself without remembering! It just looked too kiddy for you, if you know what I mean. If it's Toy Story, I get why you saw it. It was all the pink in the poster, it looked like a movie for a two year old. Forgive my misunderstanding.

I am a big De Niro fan. Well, not so much his latest movies, but you know what I mean. I appreciate his performance in Jackie Brown. He is usually the slick character, the man with the plan, you know? It's just great to see him playing a loser.

Damn! I don't think I can name just one Breaking Bad character mate. Let's put aside Walt and Jesse. Okay, I think I can say now that my favourite character that isn't the main two is Gus.

One could argue Casino is already very similar to Goodfellas. I personally can't get enough of good gangster movies. As long as it's good, it won't bother me if it's similar.

I want to see The Fifth Estate too, but I have no idea when it comes out in Australia. I've heard nothing but good things about Gravity. I wish I was in Sydney so I could watch it on the biggest IMAX screen in the world. Seems like the perfect movie for it.

I know, right? I'm some guy to be talking about someones list of shame!! Well, it's been so long since I've watched the original Star Wars trilogy I've decided to watch it again before adding it, since I can't rank it accurately when I can't remember much about them.

Ah, Dustin the Turkey, our Eurovision entry one year wasn't he? I haven't seen anything from Dustin since he was on The Den, he isn't still around is he? I think I used to like him anyway, I can't remember his song though. I must give it a listen now. Look at us referring to a puppet as 'he/him'.

It's an Irish black comedy starring Colin Farrell, Cillian Murphy, Colman Meany, and Kelly McDonald. So far, it seems to follow many people who's lives intersect.

Superbad just wasn't my kind of movie. My kind of comedy involves a slightly more intricate plot than a bunch of guys desperately wanting to get laid. The film just wasn't funny at all to me. It was just inappropriate and stupid.

Oh, just noticed you also asked me how Machete was.

Uh...it had good progression, well-rounded cast, not the worst storyline I've ever seen...
But altogether, to me it just seemed like a desperate attempt to confirm masculinity, the director getting back on his feet after doing the Spy Kids movies or something (which I prefer to this). It's just chocked full of unnecessary violence (although it could be said it gets less gory overall as it progresses), cheesy acting and one-liners, and overall just nothing worth noting.
I'd say it's worth maybe a watch or two, but after that it could easily be forgotten. I'm not really expecting anything better from the film's two sequels either.

Awesome! How'd you find the ending? Favorite moment/moments of the series? I'll happily discuss anything else you'd like to about it as well!

The Hunt is fantastic, I watched it twice in one weekend. It's uncomfortable at times, but utterly compelling. Mads Mikkelsen is terrific, one of my favorite recent performances from any actor. It's certainly worth your Netflix dolla'! I recommend it strongly and hope you get round to seeing it soon. Be sure to let me know what you think of it when you watch it.

Apologies for the late response, The Bling Ring... ehhh... i guess it could be a bit higher, maybe more in the middle quadrants of my chart, it will move around i am sure but my overall opinion: It wasn't a horrible movie it just didn't have enough going for it for me to really be blown away by whether that's a content thing or an expectation thing.... could be a bit of both but i wasn't exactly very enthusiastic about watching it to begin with so that possibly could have influenced where it ended up, i only really succumbed to it to see how Emma Watson was in it since i absolutely adored her in "Perks..." and that's also a brilliant film.

Teenage / young adult shenanigan type of films aren't usually my go to genre so i think a lot of films like that just end up sitting at the back of my chart, i mean I'll give mostly anything a chance but there are many genres and styles of film i would favor over others for sure and definitely a few i wouldn't be rushing out of my way for.

It's always some actor/actress i really like or company i might be with that ends up making me watch something i might not normally find myself watching lol

******SPOILERS FOR ALL OF BREAKING BAD**********
I'm with you on loving the ending, it seemed perfect to me. I think Walt redeemed himself as much as he could have, I was so happy he saved Jesse. It would have been an unnecessarily dark ending if Jesse were to die in my opinion. I also loved the look on both their faces when they come face to face again. Jesse's look, if I'm remembering this right, was one of almost fear, like he knew that there was no way Walt was coming in there without any plan or ulterior motives. Baby Blue was an amazing song to end on. As for what it could mean, it could be any I suppose. I'd lean towards it referring to Walt/Heisenberg himself, the line, "Guess I got what I deserve" just hits hard y'know? I got teary-eyed myself when that came on, anyway.

That's a great scene! I never actually thought about it bringing the series full circle like you said, that's a cool observation. As for my favorite moment, there's so many! I loved the ending to Crawl Space, one of the most intense brilliantly done scenes I've watched on television. Another would be 'Run' from Half Measures. I don't know how anyone could watch that episode and be able to leave the next one for some other time. I had to click onto the next episode right away.

I saw your comment on Shane's page, I also wondered if Huell was still sitting in that room! I like your Saul/Bakery/Revenge Killings scenario too, haha.

Wow, just watched the trailer. It looks distinctly Wes Anderson, which is cool, and what a cast! So many great actors in there. My favorite of his will probably always be Rushmore, but my anticipation for The Grand Budapest Hotel has gone way up after watching that trailer!

The one time I truly enjoyed Jonah Hill was his small role in Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian. His little banter with Ben Stiller was pretty great.

I've actually yet to see Scott Pilgrim. I've heard and seen great things, plus I'm the kind of person who is big on things like that. Just never got around to it when it came out.

And yeah...the end of the first film straight up said that Machete will return in "Machete Kills" (which recently released) and another planned sequel, fittingly called "Machete Kills Again".
Let's all hold onto our precious pocket change for THAT.

You probably don't even remember asking me (or care at this point), but yeah I was a huge fan of the video game Conker's Bad Fur Day.

Although I haven't touched the game in close to a decade, so I have no idea if it still holds up or not. But it works well when I need an easy username.

What a great day of watching movies mate. First it was Prisoners, then I watched Gravity in IMAX 3d. I gave Prisoners a 4.5/5, and Gravity a 5/5.

I loved the performance by Jackman. He was totally convincing as a grieving parent willing to cross the line to get answers.

I loved the scene where Loki is speeding through traffic.

I found Maria Bello to be very one dimensional and wasted.

It came close to losing me towards the end (the maze stuff), but raked me back in with some reveals.

**********Spoilers for Prisoners**************

I actually would of preferred if Jackman wouldn't of been found. It would of been a depressing ending, but I think it would of been a stronger message that he would of done anything for his child. I know it didn't show him being rescued, but there's no way he wouldn't of been found.

This brings me to my annoyance in the cinema. This old couple walking out decided to ask the workers whether he gets out at the end! How the hell would they know, it just came out on Thursday! They probably just spoilt it for them. What a stupid question.

Oh yeah, I liked the idea behind the maze and the idea of being prisoners. It was more him drawing mazes and then killing himself. It was just too frustrating for me. But I don't want to sound too critical, I gave it a 4.5/5 on letterboxd.

I also didn't like that everything was connected. Too many coincidences, but that again is a minor problem.

Oh, here's something I loved- the score! I thought it was brilliant! Sometimes I don't notice the music, but I did for Prisoners.

Gravity is my movie of the year, I loved it. The score, the use of silence, the performances, the visuals, fuck, it all just came together in a cute little package that doesn't overstay it's welcome. I watch it in IMAX 3d. Well, the watered down IMAX, but it was still great. I wish I was in Sydney so I could go to a proper IMAX screen! It's actually the biggest in the world if I'm not mistaken. I plan to watch Rush tomorrow, then Gravity again with my brother-in-law.

Do you know that movie Bronson? Well Mark 'Chopper' Reed is the Aussie version of him. He was one of the worst criminals Australia has ever seen. Yet he had a charm to him that made him likable. He toured Austrlia for years telling funny stories of his criminal years. He even wrote some books. I have two, they're very graphic! He also never got convicted of murder. It was only now, after his death, that he confessed to four murders. I have a movie recommendation for you mate. Have a watch of Chopper, starring Eric Bana in his breakout role.

Well, that's pretty fuckin' crappy. I wasn't aware of such ridiculousness in regard to their vouchers, seems unnecessarily annoying & limiting.

I've seen a few:
- Gangs of New York. I tend to love Martin Eyebrows (this made me chuckle, thanks) work myself and Gangs of New York is solid in my opinion. It's not my favorite Marty, but it's Marty so it's still very good. DDL and LDC are in top form in it.
- District 9. The visual effects in this are incredible from what I can remember. It's a great movie and Sharlto Copley is fantastic
- Pride and Glory. I can't remember this too well, it didn't make much of an impression when I seen it, but I hope you can take some enjoyment from it.

I was in on Thursday, I saw one stand with HMV blu rays, so they're starting to integrate. I went in looking for a few films but only got one, Once Were Warriors (which is a great movie by the way, I recommend). I was looking for The Changeling (George C. Scott not Angelina Jolie) and The Exorcist 3, which I always hear mentioned as an underrated horror. There was another few I was also looking for, but I only ended up getting the one. I hope when they're finished integrating the selection improves.

I'll keep an eye out for InterMission, too!

Ernie Hudson is paying homage to Tarantino, just as he has done with all his films. Plus Ernie is surely mad by now, you can't tell what a mad man will do Cian. :D

Spider Baby is a horror/ comedy that stars Lon Chaney Jr. It's an odd film, full of weird characters. I love a horror movie that features a scary house, full of nooks and crannies that reveal extra madness. Yet, the film does a good job of allowing you to sympathise with the family, even understand their twisted point of view. Even the small details like the music, opening titles, and the booming voice describing horrible things at the start made it a great watch for me. I gave it 4.5/5 on letterboxd.

I'm liking the title buddy! Please allow me some time, it's way to early here to do any creative thinking. I'm not promising any results, but I will give it a think over. :) I'm a bit creative, but never thought of writing a screenplay before. I may be less creative a few years removed from school. :D Do you want to write screenplays when you're older?

I hope you know it's not because of you mate. I just don't trust the Internet. Why, it was last week that there was a story on the tv where a guy lost two million dollars to an Internet scam. He doesn't live too far from me.

Nah, I haven't thought about it yet buddy. I was off my feet with work for ten hours. Did some chores, like mowing the lawn. Then, I played basketball. My team won 9 to 63. :) Trust me mate, I will get to it. You can hold me to it. The quality of my thoughts is another thing. :D

I have seen all the movies that you listed. I believe that you are in for a great weekend if you've got these to watch. District 9 is just hilarious, plus I love the conclusion much more than some people I've heard talk about it. I believe Gangs of New York gets shit on too much. It's a movie for me that I could watch whenever it's on tv. DDL is a beast in the movie. Psycho is Psycho. What is there to say that hasn't been said in the past. Even if it doesn't scare you, I think you could appreciate how good it is. I think your enjoyment level of End of Watch is connected to how much, or little, you enjoy the chemistry between Gyllenhaal and Peña. Then, there's Pride and Glory: the only movie that you listed that I don't like. I found it boring, the script lacking, and it being too obvious. That's just off memory, because I found it to be a very forgettable movie. I hope you get more out of it than I did.

So, are we cool? You're not pissed off about me not giving my email?

Well, I plan to watch The Seven Year Itch and My Darling Clementine to knock them off my list of shame. Hopefully I enjoy them. Some of the movies aren't for me, but I do come across movies I would never watched that I give a 5/5 score on letterboxd. I'm also looking for a crazy action movie to watch. I'm going to keep my eyes out.

First of all, are you a fan of crazy Nic Cage movies? Because if you are, then Vampire's Kiss is him at his very best. He terrorises an employee to find a missing contract. I can't really explain to you how crazy these scenes get without spoiling. Oh, he also thinks he's a vampire. The whole movie is on YouTube if you wish to see it. You may want to check out Nicolas Cage losing his shit on YouTube first to see if it's your style.

It seems to happen after server errors. I actually lost a comment to you because of a server error. It seems to happen a couple times a month. I wish they resolved the issue quicker, or permanently. Alphabetical is better than the first time it happened. All the comments were jumbled up in no order at all. One trick I've learnt is that if you go to the bottom of the page, and hit the reply button on the bottom comment, then the comment stays in the right place. But when the comments are fixed, that last comment disappears up into the other comments somewhere. :) I didn't test it out this time, i assume it still works.

I don't like the fact that it took them three months the first time to believe flickcharters who were telling them the comments weren't right. I also don't like how they took away the option to see how friends rank movies on the individual film pages.

I personally don't like his films like Annie Hall, and Manhattan. I can't tolerate all the jitteriness and whinging from Allen in these movies. I also dislike the discussions, they're so pretentious. I wish I liked these films, but I don't.

But I do like his films. I really enjoy Broadway Danny Rose, The Purple Rose of Cairo, Blue Jasmine, Manhattan Murder Mysery, Radio Days, Husbands and Wives, and Hannah and Her Sisters. Allen is actually in some of these films, so I don't know, maybe his schtick is amusing at times for me.

Yeah, it certainly ain't Toy Story quality, but I thought it was a pretty enjoyable short story from the TS universe.

I'd share your thoughts to a degree. Nothing after TS3 really interested me much, but I still think they've got it in them to make more great movies. Inside Out sounds interesting to me, as does The Good Dinosaur. They could turn out crap, but I've got faith in Pixar doing something special again.

Ooh, so you watched Psycho! Thoughts? :)

The thing was that the comments would sometimes revert back to the original order every now and then. So when Nathan looked, it was fine. :D But really, they should of looked more into it. There mustof been an issue if a bunch of people were having the same problem.

Yeah, I just moving my finger very fast until I get to the bottom. :) What annoys me more is when I've finished one question, and go look at another, it quite frequently refreshes the page. Now THAT pisses me off! Especially when someone is waiting for a reply. Hate that. ;)

Yeah, I'm not much of a fan of Bananas, Sleeper, or Love and Death either. Very similar to your reasons. I also didn't find any of the slapstick funny. I turn to Lano and Woodley for that.

It's been a while since I saw Take the Money and Run, but I think it's similar, yes.

Of course you can ask. You can ask me anything about movies or my list. I just found Crimes and Misdemeanours to be very boring. I remember getting excited when it was nearly over. But I do believe it was my first Allen movie, so I may of not been ready for his style. I may have to re-watch it one day, but I rarely see a movie again these past few years. I want to see more that I haven't seen at all before I revisit movies.

Hello Cian.

To be honest, I'm not much of a slapstick fan. Most of the time it doesn't work with my sense of humour. Lano and Woodley are a comedy duo from Australia that made a 13 ep show in the 90's that I adore. They also had two live tours. I was lucky to see their farewell show a few years ago. If any of their stuff is on YouTube, you may want to check it out.

Sites like Flickchart and icheckmovies are great for having movies up high on lists. Many of them I would of never checked out before. Now I have to check them out to see if I love them myself. Most of the time, I do. It the avant-garde movies that I have trouble with. :D

Yeah, none of the sequels or any other story with Norman Bates really interested me. The first movie was fine, but I never had the urge to explore anything more than that. There are sequel novels, but I don't think they have anything in common with the movie sequels.

I have! I watched two episodes last night and I'll probably watch a few more tonight hopefully. It's such a great show :) I've also been meaning to return to Twin Peaks, I loved the first few episodes I watched of it.

Iccheckmovies is a site where you put a tick next to a movie. Yu can also like it, dislike it, or say that you own it. The site has all the lists from critics, decades, and so forth. They then rank you in order to how many of these movies you have seen.

I've seen all the ones to the left, yes. I enjoyed them all, even The Third Man, which some people aren't too fond of. I love The Godfather 2 and really like Fight Club so I hope you enjoy them. Seven Samurai, TGTBATU and The Shining are my favorites from the list that you aren't planning on watching soon, so I'd recommend them above the rest on the list. Yojimbo, Ikiru and City Lights (if you don't mind silent movies) are also very good.

I've got Young Frankenstein there to watch, I still haven't got around to it. I think that's about it.

Godfather Part 2 is amazing, but it's not a movie I would sit down to watch again for quite some time. It's length is quite daunting.

Fight Club took a couple watches for me to appreciate it. I think I was too young with my first viewing. It's bloody weird, but unique, so it grabs my attention. I know a few people that don't like it, but most people do.

Seven Samurai is fantastic, but it dragged for me in parts. I felt like I wasn't fully paying attention because I didn't enjoy all the walking. I think I could appreciate it more now because I know how the story evolves.

I think the same could be said about Yojimbo as above. ^

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is just badass. :D

I wasn't a fan of The Third Man to be honest. The music really pissed me off. I felt it didn't fit what was happening on the screen. I was trying to get excited, but the godamn wouldn't let me.

The Shining is one of my favourite horrors of all time. It may sound weird, but I love the carpet. It's the most effective carpet of setting the tone of a movie of all time. :D

I need to see City Lights and Ikiru again.

Honestly, Man of Steel is probably my least favorite film of the year so far. And that's coming from someone who watched Scary Movie 5 and thought Olympus Has Fallen was an unpolished mess. Not only was it disappointing because it came from two directors whose works I really like for the most part, but it was also a really terrible movie. It had an amazing trailer, but the film was shit. Read my review on Letterboxd if you want a more detailed review, because there's a lot wrong with it (and I don't want to repeat myself too much...I'm lazy, alright, I'M LAZY!).

And oh, yeah, I watched Blade Runner some time ago. Again, sorry for the late response! Meh, it was alright. It looked pretty 'n colorful 'n shiny 'n stuff, dialogue and characters were flat though. I don't think it's a bad film, but I don't really get the mass appeal for it either. Even Harrison Ford looked bored.

Well, it covers a young Vito, so I don't think you'd need to see the original for that part. It may be helpful for the Michael story. It depends how long it's been since you saw the original Godfather. For me, it's been a number of years, so I'm not the best judge.

I have The Swell Season starring Glen Hansard, Tough Guys Don't Dance starring Ryan O'Neal, Hotel Rwanda, Incendies, Two-Lane Blacktop starring James Taylor, Ice Station Zebra starring Rock Hudson, and a Stranger Among Us- directed by Sidney Lumet, starring James Gandolfini Don't know when I'll get to them, but I have them ready.

Attempt 2. I accidently forgot to post my comment and left your page or somethin'.

Duuude, and the butterfly that had its wing stuck in that one shot, that was, like, poetic. The ending was weak, yeah. A cringeworthy attempt at humor in an otherwise pretty humorless film. Lois Lane was completely wasted, by the way. She didn't even have somethin' romantic going on with Superman! Her only function in the film was to be the exposition machine, that's it.

Man of Steel 2? Now that I've seen the first one, I honestly don't care how the second one will turn out to be. Ben Affleck as Batman is questionable, but so was Michael "Mr. Mom" Keaton back in the late 80s, and he turned out to be great. But who knows. Hopefully he doesn't have that annoying Christian Bale voice. And hopefully we'll get a film with a script that has actual character development and conversations that aren't simply exposition or speeches.

Harrison Ford bored in everything? I never really thought about that, but I don't think I agree. I thought he was good in the Star Wars films (well...at least the first two. He was a bit "meh, whatever" in Jedi like most of the other main actors) and he was also very good in the Indiana Jones films. I doubt I will see 42 though. I've always hated playing baseball and I don't like watching others play it. So, yeah. And I'm not American, I guess that's another part of the reason I don't like it (sarcasm mode off(?)). I dunno, baseball isn't a big thing here, although the Dutch team did pretty awesome two, three years ago from what I've heard. Over here, it's all about soccer. Soccer, soccer, soccer. Can't turn the TV on or there's goshdarn soccer on it.

If I'll star in it, it'd better be called Grown Ups 3: In Space. Or Grown Ups 3: Revolutionloadedtaliationtribution.

They kissed? Huh, I barely remember it. I guess that shows you how forgettable, disposable, poorly developed and ultimately pointless that romance was.

Eh, I haven't seen that many Harrison Ford films that aren't part of the Indiana Jones and Star Wars series, so maybe you're right. He was kinda decent in Cowboys & Aliens (the movie wasn't) but he was pretty bleh in K-19: The Widowmaker. He played a Russian in that, but you can tell that he doesn't know if he wants to use a Russian accent or not, since most of the cast doesn't have an accent at all.

The World's End? I liked it! It's probably my favorite of the Wright-Pegg-Frost "Cornetto" trilogy. Pretty funny and enjoyable. And incredibly well directed, too. I'd like to see Edgar Wright doing something more serious next time (I doubt Ant-Man will be), because he is very talented. Another thing: in my country, this film got released in theaters TODAY, yet I watched a goshdarn blu-ray rip a couple of days ago. Isn't that weird? Why bother going to the theater ('xcept for the popcorn, the theater experience, etc. etc. etc.) if you can watch a high quality rip on your PC?

This is the End? I liked it! Less! They kept referencing other movies way too much and some of the product placement was a little obnoxious (but that's to be expected from Columbia Films), but it had some decent moments. Not really my kind of humor, but eh, it was good.

So you liked District 9? I personally can't stand it, and I guess I've more or less become "infamous" for disliking it. But what did you think of it?

And huh-hey, Anchorman! Did you like it? Will you check out the sequel? Thoughts on Steve Carell in the film? Memes? Eh?

Okay mate, I will check out his review late. I'm actually watching Nosferatu the Vampyre on YouTube at the moment. :)

Of course I have heard if Chris O'Dowd! He's fantastic. I really want to check out Moone Boy. Oh, and he was in an Aussie film called The Sapphires.

I listen to the Film Junk podcast. They all enjoyed The Counselor! They said that they knew what to expect, and ended up enjoying it. I will be doing the same.

I live hours away from the closest cinema. So when I'm up here, I make the most of it you see. Usually at the end of the month I will drive up and watch movies. I have family up here as well. But the prices here are godamn insane, mate. When I watched Gravity, it was $36 for a ticket to a fake IMAX screening. Then it's another $12 for popcorn and a drink. For a normal ticket, I'm looking at $19 for a ticket. Really annoying when Americans get in for $12 or less for a ticket. Caesar told me it's $7 for tickets on some certain days! It pisses me off, Aussies consistently get ripped off on prices.

I KNOW I'm a big action guy! :D However, I still like all the movies you like as well.

Brick monster, is that a thing? Or is that your crazy brain at work again? :D

Nope, I have not seen The World's End yet! I wanted to, but it only was in the cinemas for a limited time. One screening it had when I was up here! It was at 2:30, which didn't work because I didn't want to get stuck in peak hour traffic. The roads are shit in Perth.

Yep, I did get the super obvious parody of Django
Unchained. Being a fan of action movies, I loved it. What is your opinion? Or were you expressing it through your story when they called it shitty? :)

Cowboys & Aliens isn't terrible, it's just painfully formulaic. I don't mind if something is formulaic, but it wasn't even subtle. It was a lot of "OH, HEY, TAKE THIS (a gun / a knife / whatever), YOU MIGHT NEED IT" and then, guess what, they did something with it later. It was definitely lacking fun. The climax was decent and the film is certainly well made, but it's instantly forgettable and not enough aware of how ridiculous its concept is. That's why something like Pacific Rim worked; it was aware of how dumb it was and had fun with it. I dunno. It's just kinda slightly below mediocre.

Wait, Romania? I'm from the Netherlands, dude :V . I now remember that they originally said that they weren't planning to release it over here since Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz went straight to DVD, but because there was an outcry from fans Universal said "fuck it" and decided to theatrically release it here anyway. I dunno, something like that. Does it happen often? Eh, I don't know. We got a relatively late theatrical release of The Muppets and as I said before, a lot of films I want to see (12 Years a Slave, American Hustle) have a February 2014 release in my country. I also remember watching a Blu-Ray rip of Kick-Ass 3 or 4 months before there was any physical release over here.

What really annoyed me about District 9 was how unoriginal it was. No no, not in an Avatar kind of way, because in most instances actually don't mind if a movie has an (incredibly) similar plot to another movie. District 9 was unoriginal in style. It blatantly copies scenes and styles from other movies. I won't go into detail, but Doug Walker sums up my feelings perfectly: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XG9ZQyExe4&t=27m05s . And you'll find a lot of my thoughts on it over here: http://www.flickchart.com/discussion/5AC29BEEDA/vs/5C137A86A5 . And besides that, it's just stupid. It doesn't know whether it wants to be a dark comedy, a mockumentary, serious symbolism, a splatter action film or a sci-fi film.

Yeah, the romance bits in Anchorman were definitely the weakest parts. Didn't have to be there and they weren't that funny, but eh, they didn't ruin anything for me. Anchorman 2 takes place in the 80s, which sounds awesome. Hopefully that also means an awesome soundtrack. Eh. I used to check 9GAG on a daily basis, and now I'm pretty sure I haven't checked it in over 6 months. Most memes do get old fast, yep. And, oh, dude, you're absolutely right about Groan Ups 3. In late grade school / early high school we watched White Chicks, Little Man, Scary Movie 2 and 4, Big Daddy and probably a bunch more immature crap I forgot about. We used to watch that shit on the last days of school. One time I brought my DVD of The Empire Strikes Back and people freaked out. "Star Wars? No no, not that nerdy crap!" It was a sad day. They couldn't handle quality.

North by Northwest? Heh, yeah, that's the only "big" Hitchcock film I still have to watch (well, next to The Birds, Notorious, Shadow of a Doubt, etc. etc.) I'll try to watch it next month or sumthin'. I'll also try to watch The 39 Steps. I saw the stage version of that in London in the (which basically turned the film into a fairly simple comedy) and that was pretty great. And I've read that it has a lot in common with North by Northwest, so I wonder how they compare to each other.

So how's life in North Korea?

Hey mate, how's it going? :)

Nope, never seen The Sapphires or The IT Crowd. I own every ep of IT Crowd on DVD, yet I have never opened it. :D I'm a silly bastard, yes? :)

The Film Junk podast is a trio of Canadian guys who get together every week to discuss movies. One is actually a documentary director, but he's so bloody hilarious. I listen every week. It's my podcast I listen to to discover new movies to watch. I love it. Just so you know, it's very long! The eps range in length from an hour and a half to over three hours. I don't care, I make time for it.

That price is so much better! I actually would love to visit Ireland, mate. Australia actually has the largest IMAX in the world. It's bloody 30m high, and 35m wide! Gravity is playing there now! Wow! I would love to be there. I'm kicking myself for not watching The Dark Knight in that IMAX screen when I was over to see Kate's plays. I actually had dinner with Kate 100m away from it! Shit!!

Pink Floyd should be the evil sidekicks of the your brick wall monster. They would be bricklayers, working away to make it bigger! Whilst singing 'all in all it's just a another brick in the wall.

Interesting thoughts on Django. It's not going to change my love of the film, but I respect your opinion. For me, I got a feeling that Candie wasn't going to let them out of the house. I personally think the scene was too quiet, too tense. I felt danger for the characters. You have a point about Django leaving Broomhilda, I agree with you. But to be honest, I like the action too much to care. But again, I respect your opinion, I'm not trying to argue with you. I would like to hear what you would give the film out of ten. If you enjoyed parts of the film, one part shouldn't ruin it for you entirely.

I will add A Bit of Fry and Laurie to my list of stuff I need to check out you recommended. Oh yes, I haven't forgotten buddy. :)

Oh, and I'll check out that impersonation of Brad Pitt as well, sounds funny. :) I see why people hate the film, but I enjoy weird movies. I usually like a movie that brings something to the table that's weird. If you see Vampire's Kiss someday, you'll see what my sense of humour is. That's why I laughed at one scene in the movie involving Cameron Diaz. It was a laugh of pure shock at how weird it was! The scene will dvide women for sure! The woman behind me was pissing herself laughing, and the two in frn of me didn't change their stone face expressions for the whole movie.

Well, there's a lot of Irish in Boston, so I can see how you could hear a bad accent for over there. Well, the worst Irish accent I've ever heard would be a stereotypical accent. You know, how apparently all you talk about is pots of gold and potatoes. Jeez. I think the worst Aussie accent I've heard is Quentin Tarantino or the blonde guy from Manborg. I can forgive the guy from Manborg, it's supposed to be terrible. But Tarantino was ridiculous! Especially when he it attempting the accent with two Aussie actors.

Well, the middle of Australia is pretty much all desert except for some small towns. Australia is so big, yet most of it is impossible to live in. The only thing of worth in the centre in Uluru, and I'm not traveling all the way to the centre of Australia to see a giant rock. Especially when there's a mini version not far from me. I'm over big rocks. :D

That's where many people go missing, also. Whether it's from broken down cars, or serial killers. Manny people disappear every year from there without a trace. It occurs frequently along the Nullabor plain (located on the Great Australian Bight) also. Many murderers over the years have enjoyed dumping bodies out there. Some have been crazy truck drivers, some are locals waiting on people to come along.

"Twixt" was...well, I didn't like it. It (obviously) lacks when in comparison to Coppola's other films. It seemed to me like a rushed project from a director that just wants to make films for a paycheck and that's saying something, especially coming from FFC.

The acting was strange and Kilmer's performance was damn near laughable to me. The story is one of those "I'm an alcoholic writer that goes to a town and weird things start happening" kind of story. It managed to throw in Edgar Allan Poe (he's one of my all time favorite writers) and so that was an interesting concept, in a way.

All in all, the film just wasn't my cup of tea. I think it was because I kept comparing it to FFC's other works in my head while watching it but, then again, the more I think about the film now, the more it just seems mediocre to me. I have discovered other reviewers that have enjoyed it, however, so I guess it's just up to the viewer. It's a pretty short flick (around 88 minutes) so even if you don't like it, you won't feel like you wasted a precious amount of time or anything. Go ahead and give it a shot. You might just form a different opinion about it than I have.

Yeah, many people like to travel to Uluru, but it's not for me. Plenty to see in NT, Vic, NSW and WA without going to see a rock. Like I said, there's a giant rock just down the road from me, so I don't have any intention to see a bigger version. Which Willy Wonka film? I like the older movie better.

James Nesbitt is one of the dwarves in The Hobbit. He's also a fantastic actor that's been in numerous Irish tv shows that I liked.

It was Cold Feet that I liked watching with James Nesbitt in it years ago. I thought Jekyll was Irish, but i found out it was English. I didn't mistake accents, just bad memory. :D

We get Father Ted and any other popular Irish of English show that you can think of. All the BBC shows are shown on the ABC. Home and Away is much bigger than Neighbours down here, do you get it over there?

Nope, never heard of Zero Punctuation. I'm adding it to your list. :)

He was indeed great in those movies. Unfortunately, those 4 movies are like the only movies I've seen from the dude. Captain Phillips was spectacular, one of the year's best. I've probably seen about 2500 films in my life, and it ranks in my Top 200. That's saying a lot. And Tom Hanks gave one of his best performances, so that's always a plus.

Yeah, I have the DVDs of Father Ted to my right as I type this. I need to give them back to my Irish friend, Sarah. The show still airs at 7pm?! That's crazy! I can tell how much it means to the Irish by seeing Sarah talk about it.

Well, if I cannot watch Home and Away for nearly a year, and still pick it up, then yes, it's very bad. It's funny with Home and Away or Neigbours, you either become a superstar like Isla Fisher, Heath Ledger, Chris Hemsworth, Guy Pearce, Ryan Kwanten, Melissa George or Kylie Minogue, or you're never heard of again. I know one of the actors from Home and Away works on the roads up North because he can't get a job because the show has typecast him.

Kate was actually going to be on Home and Away! She was going to be a lifeguard! :D I don't know who she would of saved, being five foot one. :D She actually read her scenes with Ryan Kwanten from True Blood. But she pulled out because an Aussie legend (Ruth Cracknell from Mother and Son... funny show) told her that the show would ruin her career. Who knows how it would of panned out for her if she decide to go down the soapie path.

DUDE! If you are a fan of Sam Rockwell and have not seen Moon, you have been missing out! It's probably his best film! Moon is such a great sci-fi movie. He gives one of the best performances from a sci-fi movie in that movie.

Ben Affleck has been great in everything he's been in, but there are a few exceptions (I'm looking at you, daredevil). That's a good choice. I would say Christopher Lee or Edward Norton.

Michael Cera is a great comedic actor. I like his range as well, he can take comedic roles or more serious ones. He's really established himself. And just curious, why did you hate Man of Steel?

Hugo was a great movie. Even though it doesn't rank up with Scorsese's best, I still really enjoyed it. Also, Scorsese is my favorite director, so that's not saying much, It's not ranked very high on my chart, but it should be higher. My chart is really messed up nowadays.

I just realized that Seven Psyhopaths is #7 on your chart. Is that something that you meant to do or an accident? Lol.

It's annoying, because most of her plays don't come over here. There all in either Melbourne or Sydney. I would of loved to see her in the play, Thursday, which was about Gill Hicks, the woman who had lost her legs due to the London bombings.

I haven't heard of the Martin McDonough play! I believe that it would be sensational.

I've seen some Arrested Development, not all of it. I like some eps, but a lot of it doesn't fit my sense of humour. I can't stress how close i was to seeing. Aargh! I don't want to think about it!

Well, I'm watching season 16 now. I have seen all the previous eps multiple times. I haven't seen the Miley Cyrus parody or the Game of Thrones eps. I can't wait to get the game! It's taking ages.

Really enjoyed Toy Story of Terror. But it's not great, because I bet they made it to see if they want to make Toy Story 4. I will watch it if they make it, but I think they concluded the story perfectly with Toy Story 3. I just don't want to see them make a bad movie. Plus it's Disney now, I haven't seen great decisions since they took over (Planes, I'm looking at you).

I was impressed with King Kong. For a movie from the 30's, Kong looked great. I loved the action, and the reveal of Kong parting the trees won't be easily forgotten by me.

Agreed, Norton was fantastic in those movies. Ah yes, I love Moonrise Kingdom. It's such a well made, hilarious type of movie. Wes Anderson's best film for sure. My favorite Norton performance would for sure come from Fight Club.

I see what you mean about Man of Steel. Some of the jokes fell flat, but in a summer movie like that, I didn't really care. It delivered the goods, which is the action. The part where I disagree with you respectfully is when you say that there was too much action. The thing is, if you remember Superman Returns, there was no action. It was exactly how you described MoS. It was great to see Superman kicking ass again, which we have been missing for so long. I feel that there will be huge controversy surrounding the film long after this year.

Yes, I love In Bruges. It is criminally underrated. McDonagh is a great director, I can't wait to see more from him. What were some of your favorite movies of the year? I say were because the year is coming to a close.

Speaking of ridiculous! I just saw Sarcastaball! Man, did my mouth open when Cartman drank the "goo". That is something I never thought I would see in a cartoon!!

Well, it's Disney, so Pixar has less say now what gets made. Disney potentially will water down Pixar until it's identity and style is lost.

I think O'Dowd will be great! It's good seeing him branch out a bit and take a different type of role. I assume you meant bad guy, not ad guy? :)

Sorry for the late response. I was typing last night and my computer glitched up. Anyways, Fantastic Mr. Fox is a great film from Anderson, but I prefer Moonrise Kingdom, Rushmore and Bottle Rocket. And Moonrise is my favorite film from him. I also love Royal Tenenbaums but find The Life Aquatic to be overrated. What do you think of those films?

I get what your saying on MoS, The buildings constantly getting destroyed got kind of annoying after a while. Nevertheless, I still enjoyed it to a great extent. I guess Zack Snyder wanted a lot of action, and he totally had a passion for the project.

Wow! The World's End at No.11? Interesting, you must absolutely adore it! Blue Jasmine is very underrated, but may pop up at the Oscars. Iron Man 3 and Into Darkness were indeed very cool! Here's my Top 10.

1. Star Trek Into Darkness
2. 12 Years A Slave
3. Gravity
4. Thor: The Dark World
5. The World's End
6. Captain Phillips
7. Iron Man 3
8. Man of Steel
9. The Wolverine
10. Prisoners

Honorable Mentions: This is the End, World War Z, Pacific Rim, The Conjuring, Monsters University.

What's your Top 10? And I have a question, is To Kill a Mockingbird actually your favorite film of all time?

Nope, no movies. The tv is off when the family is together. This includes my uncles, aunties and cousins. When I was younger, and I went to my grandma's for Christmas, I would have to watch The Sound of Music because there was only three channels then. I grew to hate that movie! Why every godamn year did they show it?! Because of this, i only watched those movies you listed when I was older. The dinner used to always make me tired, and I would then go and have a nap, along with everybody else. I still do that some years. :)

My grandma is gone now, so the family goes and has my dad's ham. It took a few years for him to perfect it in my opinion, but it's amazing now. We also have a turkey. Some Aussies have a seafood Christmas dinner, I don't know if other countries do this?

To be honest, I can't remember much about Muppets in Space. I know I don't like it, but that's all. What about you?

I'm sorry for your loss, Cian.

Nah, that's my nana that you're talkin' about. I call one nana, the other grandma, so it's not confusing. She passed a couple years ago. I was very close to her as well. I would talk to her after school whilst I waited for my parents to come to see her from my town. She was a worker, Cian. She used to throw hay bales around on the farm. Dad got her to flex a couple of years ago......shit!! She had the droopy arms like all old people have, but she had godamn huge muscles! :O I couldn't get over it! I still can't! I know some 25 year old guys that would be put to shame from her muscles. She was 87 years years old, and about 5 feet. :D That's another thing. It's crazy how much one shrinks as one gets older. I saw a photo of her when she was younger, she would of been close to six foot. :D I wonder if I will shrink that much?

Aussies love spuds as well! I guess they don't make fun of us because you Irish have got that stereotype. We've got the stupid 'put another shrimp on the barbie' stereotype. No Aussies ever say that! Only in a mocking way! There is so many potato farms around my area. A couple of spuds with gravy is great on Christmas. :)

I don't even know most of my relatives. The town half an hour away is full of relatives! One girl asked me if I was a relative of a guy, must f been because I look like him. Anyway, mum told me later that SHE was MY cousin! :D It all stems from my grandad having 13 brothers and sisters, and my nana having 12 brothers and sisters!! :O So I have all these random cousins that I know nothing about. Ha, then I have the odd relatives like the queen, the prince of Liechtenstein, the woman from Are You Being Served? and Andrew 'Twiggy' Forrest (billionaire mining magnate). Don't know any of them, though. :)

Here's a funny little story about my grandma and the woman from Are You Being Served. They are closer relatives than I. Molly Sugden I think her name is. Well, she wanted to see my grandma, so she gave her a message to come to England to see her. Her response: 'If she wants to see me, she can glossy come here'. :D Aww, classic grandma. :)

Well, your mum wouldn't be a mum if she wasn't stressing about the food. :)

On the other side of my family, my great uncle used to pick up full 44 gallon drums and lift them up and move them somewhere else. My dad saw it when he went onto his farm one day. He has huge hands you see, so it makes it easier. He would of been as strong as an ox as well. He's very old now, but still gives out advice to other farmer family members from his chair.

Are you getting tall? How tall are you now? Going to catch up with my height?

Well, a woman claimed a dingo took her baby in the outback. But many people thought she was lying and thought she killed it because it sounded so far fetched. They mock her by putting on a thick Aussie accent and saying 'the dingo took my baabyyy'. Meryl Streep was actually in a movie about it. I'm pretty sure it was found a couple of years ago that she very well could of been telling the truth.

They did that here also, like having a showdown with one of Australia's top reporters. I missed it all because I had to be places.

Yep, Do The Right Thing is unlike anything I've ever seen. A brutally honest film about race relations, and an exhilarating one at that! The characters you meet are so unique, and the way they interact is fascinating. The climax of the film is as tense as it gets. Highly recommended, it's in my top 75 after my first viewing.

Hey again. Yes, I do like my 80's movies. Probably because I'm old (30 - not actually old). :)

I really like The Princess Bride. Just go in knowing it's very silly and maybe a bit Monty Python-ish. It's an adventure, but it's more of a comedy-romance. It's cute and funny and hard not to like I think.

Blade Runner... I never could quite like it all the way, mainly because I hated Harrison Ford as the lead. I think I would have liked it much better had someone else played the role. Otherwise, I'd say it's very atmospheric and it's an interesting future concept, though it's not very true to Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, which is the book it was based on.

Oh, and if you catch it on Blu-ray (we got the Final Cut edition), they totally changed the look of the film, which gave it a very different feel. I thought it looked a lot colder and sharper, but not in a good way. I personally like the way it looked originally much better, but I'm sure everyone will have their own opinion. The original had a warmer colour scheme and a film grain. They also changed some of the effects and backdrops and took out the voice-over and changed a bunch of stuff really (added CG, ick) in the newer versions.

I recommend one of the earlier versions but I'm not sure which. I believe there are three main ones but according to the Blade Runner wiki, there are actually seven. You're not gonna find most of those extra ones though. The International Cut or Criterion Edition should be pretty close to the original if you want to go that route. That version is basically the theatrical release with some of the gore/violent scenes added back in. That version (as well as the theatrical version) does have a voice-over in parts that some find annoying, but old people like me are used to it being that way so I don't which you'll prefer. I think later versions might be a bit confusing to a newcomer.

Either way, I think they're both pretty integral 80's viewing.

Late response as usual, excuse as usual, making myself look an idiot as usual. I'm busier than ever though, university eats most of my free time, which is a bummer.

The Way Way Back was pretty darn great. Definitely similar to The Descendants (which is no surprise since it's directed by that film's writers): people with family and relationship issues in a (sub)tropical environment. The acting in it was pretty solid. I liked seeing Steve Carrell in a non-comedic role, he was really good. Rockwell was ERMAZIN' as usual, though not quite as great as in Seven Psychopaths. The boy was not all that relatable because he was just too awkward, but he did a good job, I guess. The girl who played Susanna was insanely cute. And yeah, that's pretty much all I have to say about it. Very good.

Dr. Strangelove on the other hand...I dunno. I liked the scenes in the war room a lot, the rest was a little "eh" for me. Not really boring like 2001 but not really engaging either. It was good and very well acted, just not really my cup of tea, I guess. I don't think I can call myself a Kubrick "I-don't-know-what-the-fuss-is-about"-guy just yet, because I did really like The Shining and because, y'know, Strangelove is only the third film I've seen from him.

Ok, you will have to explain to me what travelers are, Cian.

Running Scared was a little known crime film he made a few years ago. It involves gangsters, double crossings, and some disturbing shit that I won't get into. I just found the movie, and Walker to be a very solid. I would give it a strong 4/5 on letterboxd.

Scrooged just didn't make me laugh at all, unfortunately.

Bronson is weird, isn't it? But for a psycho like that, I feel the director has a license to be creative with how to portray the character. Hardy is a powerhouse in this film. You really should follow up Bronson with Chopper now. :)

I enjoy all of Winding Refn's films. The only one I haven't seen is Fear X...i think. :) For me, he always brings something creatively interesting to the table. Many people may not like his work, but he unapologetically makes the film that he wants to make. He doesn't make it easy for the audience, he challenges them. Whether it's extreme violence, or long scenes of no dialogue.

Mainly for the cockatoos. I was watching them talk about it on tv tonight. This farmer noticed that flies left cockatoos alone, and wondered why. Cockatoos also have a really long lifespan, many live to be 80!

A woman wiped the extract on her burn, and it was gone in 20 days! Scientists put tumous in a mouse, then injected it with the extract. All the tumors disappeared! Amazing. They are seeing if it will work on humans now. All from a bird that farmers shoot because they eat all the fruit. :)

Here's the thing about me. I wouldn't even call myself an atheist. :) I just don't give a shit enough to connect myself to a group. Religion does work for the better for some people, I understand that. Whatever works for the individual is fine, they just shouldn't be fuckin' forcing it on me. But I also recognise that religion is one of the worst things to ever happen as well. It separates people, you know? Causes anger and war.

I'm interested for no reason (don't go reading into the question), what you're like angry? Personally, I bottle it up, keep calm, but I have a breaking point. If that person hits that breaking point, I tend to get very angry. Because I don't like to be angry, so when I do......

Hey, sorry for the late reply. I have not been on Flickchart much lately, and I just saw your comments now. The Color Purple wasn't horrible, it's just really disappointing. As you said, Spielberg was behind the camera, and he is a master. Unfortunately, it was one of his worst films. How would you rank Spielberg's films?

Yeah, I think I will check out Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa. It looks good, plus your recommending it. The storyline sounds great. In A World looks like a great movie as well. You must see 12 Years A Slave once you get the opportunity. I'm actually a Canadian, and the film came out for me on the date of release.

I agree with your points on Gravity. An amazing movie. Everything was pitch perfect. I will be writing a review on Letterbox soon, so you can check that out if you wish. Is there anything you have planned to watch soon?

I ordered The Act of Killing recently as well, I really want to see it, been hearing nothing but great things about it. Searching for Sugar Man is another film I ordered, I asked Shane if he seen it and he loved it so I decided to go for it. I'm gonna try and get seeing To Kill a Mockingbird soon too, it's your number one, you recommended it and it's always been in the back of my mind to watch.

Great list! Godfather 2 would be a great film to have as your 500th. Saving Mr. Banks looks like a great movie. You can tell that Hanks is going for the Oscar with Captain Phillips and that. I don't have THAT much planned. I'm actually in the middle of a Letterbox project where I watch and review 30 Amazing Movies. You should check out the reviews, there will be 28 more on the way.

Yeah, it's the black and white version that I'll be watching.

The Godfather Part II is fantastic, I'll be interested in seeing if you prefer it to the first one or not. Let me know what you think.

I love Sherlock! Cumberbatch and Freeman's chemistry is what makes it for me. I didn't know the season premiere was on New Years day though, thanks for that!

If you've seen The Departed, I think you'd be surprised how much faster paced Infernal Affairs is. It was actually a friend who recommended (or almost threatened me to buy it) Infernal Affairs after seeing it ten times or so. This was back in 2003 or 2004 or so, so The Departed didn't exist at that point in time, and I didn't have anything to go on except my friends recommendation. But I bought it anyway and forced my dad to watch it as well which he was grateful for ("best thriller I've seen!").

I'd probably say Rush is my favourite from this year. It blew me away, I loved it.
Gravity was a great experience too, and my first 3D film at the cinema.

Do you have any favourite Christmas movies? I noticed Scrooged on your recently watched, I'll usually watch that if it's on tv over Christmas. I watch Elf every year, and also A Christmas Story.

I've never seen your top two Christmas films, shame on me. Maybe they'll be on tv this year.
I like the others on your list too. Christmas Vacation always makes me laugh.

Will Ferrell does make me laugh a lot, yeah you could call me a fan. I liked his more serious roles in Stranger Than Fiction and Everything Must Go as well.

I was worried that the 3D in Gravity would give me a headache, but I was fine. I think Gravity was the perfect 3D movie, the floaty space stuff, not too fast paced for the most part, etc. I found it stressful to watch though, but in a good way. I don't think I'd choose to watch many other films in 3D, plain old 2D is good enough for me. :)

I'll probably not bother checking that version out ever, then.

Mildly familiar. I've seen About Schmidt, Sideways and The Descendants. I'd certainly recommend the two you haven't seen; Sideways and The Descendants are both very good in my opinion. I think I remember slightly preferring Sideways, but they're both very good to be fair. I've heard good things about Election too, but haven't been able to see it yet.

So since it's near the end of the year, have you got a favorite of 2013 so far? Do you think your current favorite will still be number one by the end?

Wow, I never noticed it moved its way into your top ten. Very cool, it's my second favorite of the year and I can't wait to watch it again.

My favorite of the year is The Conjuring. I have a soft spot for horror and The Conjuring pretty much ticked all the boxes for me. It had a great soundtrack, was very well directed and contained some brilliantly done scenes. However, I haven't seen too many films this year, but I hope to try and watch a couple this month that I missed throughout the year. I've got a few films ordered and planned to watch that might take over; The Act of Killing, Mud and Before Midnight are three that have a chance of overtaking The Conjuring. I'd also love to see Gravity before it leaves my local cinema, I think this coming week is its last so I'll try and get seeing it too.

I see what your problems were with Amazing Spider-Man, it's just that I was enjoying the film too much to recognize any flaws. That was my theatre experience however, I have re-watched it a few times since. On my last re-watch, I was looking for major flaws, and I really couldn't find any. Marc Webb did an amazing job, and I actually cared about the characters more than in the Raimi films!

I agree, it could end up being a total mess. Hopefully though, it turns out to be a great movie. What are your most anticipated of 2014?

Sweet! Godfather Part II is fantastic, my number 9. I think it's my favorite Al Pacino performance, his transformation in the first film is great, but he completely owns the role in part II. The sequences with De Niro are terrific, to see Vito's rise made for incredibly compelling viewing.

I thought I'd let you know that I just watched Prisoners and thought it was very good. It reminded me of Gone Baby Gone and Mystic River, more so MR. I think it might have been the tone and the dark, bleak atmosphere the movie had that reminded me of those films. Great performances all round too.

Both Nyphomaniac and Antichrist are directed by Lars Von Trier, and feature some of the same actors. It's the terrible images of genitalia mutilation in Antichrist that make me hate is so much. I will admit that the movie is shot beautifully, but the rest is shit. I won't even attempt A Serbian Film, that not his movie, but it looks terrible!!

You mean Michael? I'm not sure she hated him, I can't recall it too well. I remember him telling her to never ask him about his work and then the door closing as people came up to Michael. I thought it meant that this is the path he's chosen now, there's no real going back and she's either going to have to accept it or leave and so she decided to stay. I hope I'm remembering it right, but that's what I got from it anyway.

Yeah, I'll give you a few recommendations for Gyllenhaal! Well my favorite movie that he's in is probably Donnie Darko, a really great little move that I'm sure you've heard of. It's got a very interesting story, accompanied by a soundtrack that works brilliantly and has a fantastic atmosphere to it. I don't think it's Gyllenhaals strongest performance, but it's my favorite movie of his. It's a movie that I imagine you could really love or dislike though, so I'd recommend it with a little caution. Another that I'm sure you've heard of, which I would recommend with more confidence would be Zodiac. It's got maybe my favorite Gyllenhaal performance (Prisoners is competing with it in that regard though) and is directed by David Fincher. So you know what you can expect there; a beautifully shot film with a dark tone and a thoroughly engrossing experience. I hear a lot of people call it Fincher's best, I personally think The Social Network is his best, but I wouldn't argue with anyone arguing Zodiac. It's actually due a re-watch now that I'm talking about it! Another one, you said it yourself, is Source Code. A very good movie that I'm sure will entertain you for the whole running time. Gyllenhaal is very good in it also. Sorry for rambling on a bit there, but there's three recommendations for you :)

I liked it. I also think it might divide a lot of people, but it worked for me. I'm terrible at seeing any kind of 'twist' coming so it caught me off guard. I was thinking there was going to be some sort of revelation and I was ready to crucify the film if I didn't buy it at all, fortunately it worked very well for me.

Yep, added to my watch list buddy. Thanks for the recommendations.

You excited for any movies coming out soon or next year?

I'm looking forward to those films as well, also looking forward to Her, The Grand Budapest Hotel and Inherent Vice. Yeah, 12 Years a Slave comes out January in Ireland as far as I'm aware. Wow, did not know Cinema Paradiso was being re-released! It most certainly is worth your time, fantastic film, one of my all-time favorites! If you get the chance I really hope you watch it, it'd be great to see in the cinema. It also contains one of Ennio Morricone's best soundtracks in my opinion.

I liked A Christmas Story. I didn't grow up with it so it didn't have any nostalgic value to me, but I still really enjoyed it. Great idea, Die Hard is awesome, Gremlins is a lot of fun and A Christmas Story is a sweet, humorous movie that'll get you in the christmas spirit.

Inherent Vice is Paul Thomas Andersons adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's novel of the same name. I think it's the first time Pynchon has given permission for one of his books to be adapted. Just putting PTA's name beside a film has me sold, that's the main reason I'm so excited about it. That and the fact he's teaming up with Joaquin Phoenix again. Would you be a fan of Paul Thomas Anderson?

Alright cool. Sounds interesting, I'll keep an eye out for it.

I watched Before Midnight and Gravity. Loved the hell out of both of them. Before Midnight had some of the most interesting, engrossing dialogue in any film I've seen with amazing chemistry between Delpy & Hawke (as you'd expect). I was surprised at how much I loved Gravity, I thought it might have been a bit too hyped up for me. But it was incredible for me, it grabbed me from the first minute and didn't let go. It's probably my favorite film of the year, not sure yet. However, you talked about the writing and I'd agree to a certain extent, sometimes the lines seemed a little off/out of place.

Anyway, I'd thoroughly recommend Before Midnight to you. Of course you'd have to watch the first two before it; Before Sunrise & Before Sunset, but they're totally worth it. One of the best trilogies I've seen.

Hey man! Sorry I took so long to reply. I was traveling and when I came back in November I had to sort some stuff at home.
First to let you know what my thoughts are on :
- Hunter: It was pretty good, Dafoe's performance was great. I always knew he could pull a one-man-show. It's the perfect movie for a lazy rainy day.
- After Earth: Well...Shyamalan doesn't seem to be recovering and if Will Smith is going to put his son in all of his films then it's going to 'get ugly'.
- The World's End: Excellent! A good addition to Edgar Wright's filmography. You can see the difference between this and This Is the End, one has class the other one has not, still I enjoyed both of them.
- Thor 2 was definitely better than the first one, you could tell that Joss Whedon had something to say.
- Monsters Univ. was good, expected a bit more but it wasn't a disappointment. All in all a solid Pixar film.
- Hud was brilliant, no one can beat Paul Newman! It had heart, sorrow...it had everything.
Also another classic that I've seen lately and I thought it was superb: Auntie Mame. I will never know why Rosalind Russell never won the oscar that year. She made the movie so watchable that you wouldn't believe it was released in the 50's. Terrific performance!

Yep, I love em both! Punch Drunk Love took two watches for me though. First time I was kinda indifferent towards it, but the second time it seemed so unique and such a joy to watch. Adam Sandlers best performance in my opinion too. The Master I loved right away. Joaquin Phoenix is mesmerizing in it, it's electric on screen when he and Hoffman interact in any way. The Master is also probably PTA'a most visually 'interesting' film imo, some of the shots are just dream-like and hypnotic. The Master is pretty divisive though, so not sure what you'll think of it. Hope you end up on the loving it side though :)

It just could've fine tuned the writing a bit more and it would've been top. The writing is only a very minor gripe for me though, I found the film so impressive that it didn't bother me much at all.

I don't think I've ever watched that y'know? I take it you'd recommend it, yeah?

I won't be seeing it this weekend, unfortunately. I'd say I'll head to see it some day next week though. You gonna see it this weekend?

I've never watched the Muppets before so can't call myself a fan. I'll give it a go though if I get the chance.

Yeah, it is very long. Some reviews are saying it's an improvement over the last one so I'm getting pretty excited about it. The last one disappointed me a little.

I like how you talk about Ulysses. :) I like how mature you seem to me, then you same something completely..... randomly..... bonkers. Very good mix, bud.

I'll probably ask Santa for Man of Steel, Star Trek Into Darkness. :) I may ask for a ps4 game also. I hope I haven't been too naughty. I don't want coal in my stocking.

I'm adding that song to the list. I will dedicate a day to watching stuff you recommended. :) I will call it Cian Day!!

Yes, breathing down his neck you bloody weirdo. ;) Very funny my friend. :)

They didn't learn from Spiderman 3 what three villains in a movie does.

Are you sure your Irish? ;) Glen Hansard is the Oscar winning music artist from The Frames and The Swell Season. He's gone solo now. He was also in Once, and the doc The Swell Season, which is about the pressures of life on tour, and the break up of the couple from Once.

I'm surprised you haven't heard Glen's solo music before.

Well, my lad (you funny shit), yes, they were a real couple. The movie is about falling in love, the doc is about drifting apart. It was quite gut wrenching for me watching it. Oh, they also get into an interesting subject about what the Oscar means to his parents, and whether it defines him as a person. Oh boy, there was some real emotions with his parents. I loved it. The director shot it so well too. There was one part where Glen is talking about his Dad. The director chose to have the shot right up close on his face. Glen has such expressive eyes, that I really felt what he was going through. I put The Swell Season right next to Once on my list because I think they go hand-in-hand with each other.

It annoys me that they sold the movie as being "the untold story of Spider-man". Yet, they're doing so much if the same things! It's a remake, and that's all there is to it. You know, we're going to keep getting reboot after reboot because Sony won't want to give the rights back to Marvel. It would be cool to see him in The Avengers. Not this Spider-man, but some other guy.

Haha! Woah! Your erotica idea for release dates gave me a mental picture that I didn't need. :)

I really, really don't think you should see it, so I will just put a spoiler warning for other people. If you didn't like the look of that trailer the other day, you would hate this.

*******Spoilers for Martyrs*********

Well, a girl called Lucie escapes from being tortured in an abattoir. 15 years later she bursts into a families home and brutally (extremely violent!) murders all of them. She calls her friend to tell her that she has had revenge and needs help burying the bodies. Then this scarred, naked woman (a manifestation of her guilt for leaving a girl behind in the abattoir) starts attacking Lucie, but all her friend can see is her cutting herself up. She realises she will never be better, so she slits her own throat (godamn, it was bad).

The next day people turn up whilst The friend, Anna I think, is trying to clean up. She had discovered a trap door in the families home that had a scarred girl with a metal thing on her head. They shoot her, and take Anna hostage. What happens now, is one of the worst things I've seen. For, I say 20 minutes, all it the movie is about is a guy coming and going into the dark room to torture her. There's nowhere to hid on-screen. Everything is black except for the tortured and Anna. It eventually gets to the point that she gets flayed alive!! Godamn that put me in a dark place. The point of this was that they're a society that believes if they torture someone enough, that they'll get insight into the life after this one. Anna survived the longest out of anyone. Her eyes appear to be otherworldly now. She whispers something in the leaders ear. The leader then holds a meeting to inform everybody what was said. Instead, she just shoots herself in the head, selfishly not telling the rest what was said.
And that's it.

*************Spoilers for Martyrs*************

I don't know to be honest, The Guard is the only film of his that I've seen. If Calvary turns out to be great I might try and see some of his earlier stuff, if he has any that is.

The Act of Killing was great, very shocking and even infuriating at times. I'd definitely recommend it, one of my favorites of the year. Searching for Sugar Man was very good, they used songs from the artist they were trying to track down throughout the film and it worked very well. I'll not tell you much about either as they're best experienced not knowing too much in my opinion.

Everywhere- underage drinking is everywhere down here. It won't stop because of our drinking culture that gets passed down.

Man, I relate to you on this subject bud. I will have a drink, but I don't need it. I could easily go years without a drink without missing it. People over here aren't happy unless everybody has a beer in their hands. If you don't, they will hassle you. Sometimes I hold a beer at parties just so they leave me alone. But, that doesn't always work because people keep an eye on how much you drink as well. Shit!! It's so weird! Who gives a shit if someone isn't drinking! Ha, got angry there. :) I'm not a violent guy, but the people who do this make me want to punch them.

I hate politicians. I don't know what it's like in Ireland, but over here, they give themselves pay rises every year without fail. Our economy could be in real trouble soon. But I wouldn't be surprised if they get a pay rise anyway. They want the pension age to be 70, yet when they retire, they get a big fuckin' payout, and a personal chauffeur for the rest of their lifes! Plus, they're all fuckin' corrupt, taking even more money, or making taxpayers pay for their fuckin' flights to Bali. Some countries, the politicians actually go into it to help, they're not even paid that much. But here, it's a good way of bending the rules to suit themselves.

I would like to hear what makes you angry bro. :) It feels odd saying "bro". It's not a word I use. :D

You know why I don't drink? Because I'm such a tall guy, it takes quite a bit to get me drunk. I'm not exaggerating when I say that I drank a whole carton one night at school leavers (30 beers). Guess what? I didn't feel one bit different. I was even knocking them back fast because a friend had noticed I hadn't been drinking as much as them. So, I made up for it. I even made a pyramid out of the empty cans. People talked about that for a few months, but I don't give a shit about bragging about drinking. It's just not that important to me.

Another thing that gets me mad is when people judge me based on my size. They think I'm scary without even talking to me. I'm the last person that anybody needs to worry about, yet they treat me like I'm going to smash them or something. There is also people who know what I'm like, so they take advantage of me being nice. But, I have a breaking point, that's when people see my scary side. If I threaten someone, then they deserve it. A friend at school was nagging me all day. I got away and was playing basketball on the court with another friend. I was relaxed, and glad to be away. Then, he came and join in. He nagged me straight away. Now, I reckon I warned him five or six times of my intention, but he didn't listen. I snapped. I grabbed him, picked him off the ground by his jumper, then slammes him into the fence. I had him up to my height, and was yelling in his face, but I didn't hit him. I put him down, and he didn't bother me for the rest of the week. Ha, I went and versed the older kids at basketball straight after that. I won. :)

People are just such bastards. This is another thing that gets me angry. I was just waiting in line to fill up my car. In the line was two petrol bowsers. One car just left, and an old man was filling up in the next one. There was a car in from of me. When the old man left, the woman in front of me pulled straight into the first spot! Bitch, that's all there is to it.

There was nearly a disaster. I'm home now. Just two house up from me, a car has rolled down the hill because the handbrake didn't work, and smashed into a house and the garage. The whole garage is on a lean, and I heard the SES guy say that one of the walls of the house is badly damaged. Very lucky all the kids were in the lounge room at the time. It could of been fatal if they were outside playing.

I was just hoping for a ridiculous answer to the ridiculous dish question. ;)

Lucky I didn't answer before falling asleep again this morning. I thought you were saying that they made a Hangover game for some reason. I hate all these spoof movies recently. They don't even make jokes, just references.

Bogans are people who always wear thongs (that's what we call flip flops), a bluey (type of singlet), and footy shorts. The stereotypical bogan also has a mullet, isn't very bright, and drinks a lot. There are many that are harmless, but many are racist to people from other countries.

Nah, I don't follow politics too much myself. Mainly because I just get angry.

Hmm, interesting. I never have got angry at mass consumerism before. You may of just planted a seed in my brain. :D

Nope, there's no reason to be intimated by me unless someone tries to harm me physically, or mentally. It just the size of me I feel. Only guy was a smart arse to me, when I looked at him, he said 'please don't eat me'. :/ He was serious too! He thought I was going to beat him up over one stupid comment. I thank you for your kind words by the way. You seem like a good bloke. Bloke is another word I don't say in person. :D

The Muppets special was alright, nothing special. A bit too much Gaga for my liking.

I just like the fact that Depp isn't wearing stupid makeup, or putting on a silly voice. He tries so hard to be different that his diferencenessness (intentional) becomes cliche and boring.

Ah Bill Murray.....what a beautiful man. :) We may as well embrace the fact we all have him for profile pics! :D

A lot of people do that, though. Sure, he may be extreme, but all the time people say 'Gravity wins', or just 'Gravity'. I was guilty of that when I started, but I learnt to at least say something. I get bored looking at the matchups for this reason. It's kinda like pot luck coming across a decent convo.

I made you laugh. I'm not very successful at that! :D Glad you liked it.

Hardly! I've talked to you, and ironichipster today. :)

Hey! What's this?! The Hobbit?! I thought you wanted to check out the other films? What going on here? :)

Ooh! Bad Santa or Gremlins!!? Um, I think you'd appreciate the black comedy of Bad Santa for sure. But, i do love me some Gremlins. Tough choice bud.

Because I live far away, I cram in as many movies as possible. I will watch a movie, at like, 9:30 in the morning, then maybe another after lunch. If I'm really game, I might watch another that night as well. It all depends on times, and selection of what's to see.

Oh, I'm on board for the mean spiritedness of Bad Santa. Maybe I like comedy that's the opposite of me? Anyway, any interaction between him and the kid makes me laugh a lot. It improved immensely on re-watch also. I think I have seen in four or five times now.

Do you know they're working on Bad Santa 2?

I just watched Man of Tai Chi. Actually quite enjoyable. A bit cliche, but the fighting is pretty good. A strong 3.5/5 on letterboxd.

I have Citizen Kane recording onto my foxtel box. I'll be watching it again in the next few days. :)

Dude, I've been reading your discussions with Caesar about this guy who comments one word answers all the time. It's making me laugh really hard. Blue Jasmine will hopefully win awards, it's an underrated gem. Yeah, Blanchett will probably win Best Actress. As for Best Picture, I think it's between 12 Years A Slave and Gravity. But ya never know.

I see you've been checking out Christmas films! Bad Santa, Love Actually, a Christmas Story! What were your thoughts? I also find it funny how some people are changing their avatars to Bill Murray. Would you mind if I join in?

As for Sherlock, I've been checking it out. I'm hooked so far. Everything about the show is just fantastic. I love both Martin Freeman and Cumberbatch. I can't wait for the premiere of Season 3! What are some other shows that you like?

Well, your not wrong with your thoughts on Gravity. Everybody has a different opinion. I was just blown away though, and it may just be my favorite theatre experience of this year. Hopefully you love 12 Years A Slave like I did. Anything else you plan to see that's a 2013 release?

Never loved Bad Santa, because as you said, it feels a bit too mean-spirited for a Christmas film. Love Actually is a film that I actually liked quite a bit. Wow, first time for A Christmas Story? It's one I watch every year around Christmastime. Is there any other Christmas movies you'll be watching this year?

Haha I'll take over when you switch I guess. Murray is one of my favorite comedic actors. I forgot Gaveecho had one... interesting.

Have not yet seen Desolation of Smaug, but will be checking it out next weekend for sure. An Unexpected Journey is a very good movie. The pacing was a bit off, but once they got out of The Shire I was fully invested in the characters and their objective. Martin Freeman is the greatest actor to play the character of Bilbo Baggins. What about you? Hitchhiker's Guide is pretty bad in my opinion. Not much to say, I just never liked it for some odd reason.

Breaking Bad is a fantastic show! I'm glad we share the same thoughts on it. What did you think of the finale? I thought it was done to perfection. I also love The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and others. I used to like South Park, but prefer other animations like American Dad or Family Guy. Chris O'Dowd is indeed great. I've seen Outnumbered before, it's a great show.

Hey, I actually stumbled across your YouTube channel a few days ago. I'm pretty sure I subscribed. I found it by your comment on the SchmoesKnow review of The Wolf of Wall Street!

Great list of Christmas movies there. All classics. I only have one movie I watch every holiday season, which is It's A Wonderful Life. I was wondering what your thoughts on Elf were, because it seems to get a lot of hate.

I love the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy book. One of my favorites. Sadly, the movie couldn't quite deliver. Have you read it yet?

Haha that sounds funny. I'll try to see if I can track that comment down, because I'm more than interested :). Yeah, Season 5B was actually my favorite because each episode was so intense and you had no idea what was going to happen!

That's weird... how can't you watch them? I'm pretty sure they're both shows that are in every country. And I saw one of your reviews which I really enjoyed! Your reviews are great.

SchmoesKnow are my favorite reviewers. I also love Chris and PrettyMuchIt, as well as JeremyJahns and TheFlickPick. I've never heard of JonTron, does he have good reviews? And i would love for you to re-post that.

Whoops, that wasn't my intention placing it that low! Nah, Gravity was great. Little cheesy and melodramatic in parts (and George Clooney in a space suit just looks silly), but it's still one of my favorite films of this year. Absolutely stunning 'n breathtaking 'n stuff.
Movie 43, on the other hand, was shite. You know there's something wrong when the segment where Hugh Jackman has a pair of testicles under his chin is actually the funniest and most well directed short throughout the whole film. It was an abysmal film, though I still rather rewatch that than Man of Steel. Man of Steel was just painfully boring and stupid. Movie 43 was stupid in a "who really cares" kind of way.

I'll check out JonTron and BelatedMedia. They seem interesting to say the least... And I've only read five of them, but I'll be sure to check out the sixth when I get around to it. Going off of what Shane said, are there any comedians that you like?

Do you like Sightseers? It seems like a movie that could be too mean spirited to you. Never watch his previous movie- The Kill List. Not for you. :)

Oh, awesome! I'm very happy you got tickets! Who else you gonna take? Me obviously...then who? ;)

I enjoyed Capote, but I enjoyed Hoffman more than the rest of the movie. It's because I watched In Cold Blood, which covered the same people (more focused on Perry Smith), but much more effectively in my opinion, I didn't know Harper Lee was involved with the case.

I didn't like Birth of a Nation because it was favourable to the KKK- even making them heroes.

Donald Glover made me laugh.

I loved Man Bites Dog

I watched Ferngully because of a crazy coincidence.

I knocked 11 movies off my Flickchart top 1000 list of shame.
