Gone Girl - WTF/10

The trailer looked alright. Started off as a bit of a satire about small town America, stupid network TV hosts, lonely housewives, media distortion, etc... followed by a slow pressure cooker of strange circumstances that quickly boiled over into absolute insanity. There is so much tension throughout this film, Hitchcock would have been proud. I enjoyed this movie, particularly for it's unpredictability and plot twists which gives it it's WTF/10 rating.

Oh, right... soundtrack is by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, so I enjoyed that too.

The Wolf of Wall Street - snore/10

Watched for about an hour, was entertained for about 50 minutes but then got incredibly bored.
I get it, they're crazy. What else? If it had been a 1 and 1/2 hour movie I would have pushed through, but 2 more hours of this? Pass.

Gone Girl 1-10/10

I have no idea how to rate this. I'm pretty sure what I saw was a really good film. But there's just something about it that really bothered me. And I can't put my finger on it. It might have been the woman that plays the wife. She was either a really good actress, or really bad. I'm leaning good. Maybe it was the music. I don't know, something rubbed me wrong, but I still really liked it...

Movie falls apart in the last half as the script is shit and the characters don't make any sense. They do things just because... movie. It's held together by solid acting and direction by whoever that cunt is who directed it. Fincher.

Frank

A surprisingly star-studded cast for a film inspired by the late Chris Sievey / Frank Sidebottom.
Very enjoyable; a kind of Spinal Tap for the alternative scene. If you're English, you just have to watch it ignoring your preconceptions of who Frank Sidebottom was and go with the delightfully warped story following the tribulations of this group of lunatic misfits.

Pretty cool music too :)

Cast includes Michael Fassbender, Domhnall Gleeson and Maggie Gyllenhaal. Gyllenhaal in particular stands out as the psychopathic Clara.

Coherence
-Cool movie, but the slow parts are sloooooowwwwwww and then it kicks right into the plot, however key pieces you need to notice are in the slow, boring parts. Otherwise an interesting concept.


The Signal
8/10, pretty darn good

I liked it, i'd give ita 6 mainly cos the boring parts were so fucking boring, if I was being generous i'd give it a 6.5. The concept and the way it's weaved together makes the movie worthwhile :up:

Same, I think I got as far as you n all. The 1st 5 minutes was the same as 55 minutes in, just with more money. Might aswell watch Lizard Lick Towing.

/fuck it.

Alien.
Really?
Yes.

It's still a very entertaining movie to watch, with the right mindset. It certainly isn't scary anymore but the design of everything is great. It's very 1979 though, especially the space age high tech advanced people still smoking like nobody's ever heard of lung cancer before.

Got Aliens cued up next

Just like most science fiction movies, it intrigues, hooks, but ultimately fails to deliver.
7/10

I thought it was great, as long as you ignore the part with Melanie Griffith. Fucking terrible acting.

Did you watch the other two? Mother is also a pretty gripping murder mystery.

Conspiracy - 7/10 - docu-movie about the Wannsee Conference

in a way, it undermined its own billing as 'the conference where they decided to do the Holocaust'; it wasn't decided at Wannsee, it was decided by Hitler before then, given to Heydrich to carry out, and he held the conference to basically tell all the government/military depts to make sure they would all be on board

it was more about how these guys reacted to being told to participate in industrialised mass murder

Super 8

Yes, I am sure you've probably seen it but it was my first :)

You may know the story but briefly, schoolkids witness a train crash. An alien held in captivity by the government and the escape.

IMO, not bad entertainment at all ad worthy of a view given the chance. 7.5/10

Aliens
There just is no end to all the stereotype characters in this movie. I actually liked it less than Alien, even though it was slightly easier to watch (mostly due to more conventional pacing I guess). When watching this movie, you really have to place it in a mid-80's frame of mind, otherwise it gets kind of corny. Back then, it was a pretty revolutionary movie I guess.

Waterloo - 5/10 - Christopher Plummer and Rod Steiger, cast of thousands (literally - the battle scenes are 100% extras, and they're fucking huge). the scrupulous avoidance of gore - a product of the time i guess - undermined the 'horror of war' theme that ran through it. when Uxbridge gets his leg shot off by a cannon ball we don't see anything, not even blood splatter. also, their depiction of cannon fire was nonsense; cannon balls don't explode - they get their effect from sheer kinetic energy, and they bounce along the ground, taking limbs and heads off on their way
