satanicbearmaster -> Outcast (10/5/2012 4:40:39 PM)



So... Outcast was a film that popped up out of nowhere, unlike my cock after I've had more than three drinks. I don't know exactly where I saw it advertised, but it was a horror website anyway, so I felt compelled to give it the 'aul IMDB look over. Almost immediately I saw the words "Irish" and "Traveller". Word recognition truly is a wondrous thing. I figured even if this film wasn't up to my stupidly high standards, (which I only have with films, not women) I'd get a kick from the badly done Irish accents.Within seconds I was torrenting it, drool streaming from my open mouth and rainbows spraying from my eyes with excitement. After seeing "Snatch" when I was younger, any film that contains scenes with English or Irish travellers is going to be memorable.

I don't know what the general consensus is on this film, but I enjoyed it. Not as a horror movie, but it was entertaining. The inner city youths in the film and their over the top violence could have brought warmth to the most marble of hearts. "Oi, look what I've brought for you, ya mongo cunt" being the stand-out quote of the film. The accents aren't as bad as something like Darby O Gill, which of course I was thankful for. The usual horror violence is there, and the first scene in the film has boobs. I count this as a positive. The action sequences are few and far between, but work well when they pop their softcore gore heads around.

James Cosmo is some sort of traveller wizard in this film. That was probably the best sentence ever. I often wake up from dreams smiling. Dreams where sentences like "James Cosmo is traveller wizard" are read on the news. I like James Cosmo and he plays a semi-interesting character in the seven minutes of screen time he is given.

The effects are kinda gammy, but not bad enough to make this a B movie.

2.5 out of 5. Watch it, don't have high expectations. Enjoy it for what it is - BOOBIES. Note that I probably gave this a lot more because the characters are supposed to be Irish.

OK, so I'm not one to give a new person on any site a hard-time, but a word to the wise... there are film makers on this site and its a site for people who love movies.

Gleefully downloading stuff illegally is somehow an accepted practice nowadays and I'm sure that most people have done it, if not with movies then with music, books or games.

But still, going on about it on a movie lover/film maker site is a bit like making a giant poo at house party, not being able to flush it and then coming downstairs and saying "that massive shit in the toilet... yeah, that was me, sorry about that."

In this current economic climate and shitstorm of crap modern cinema, downloading is necessary. When I have the slightest bit of cash, I spend it on necessities like cans of cheap cider, food and records. I don't want to be some sort of modern livingstone, braving the marsh of shit cinema to find out the good ones. If I had watched Outcast and enjoyed it so much that I had sex with various USB slots on my laptop just to make myself feel closer and more immersed in the cinematic viewing experience, I would have probably gone out and bought it on every single format. Including vinyl that just contains the dialogue for the film, but they are made mostly for stoners who like to imagine what the characters look like themselves. Alas, this didn't happen. I watched the film and let out a meh. Not just a normal meh, like the mehs I let out when someone I don't particularly like asks me to go to a party with them, but the kind of meh that you would have to go out of your way to provoke someone into doing. I deleted the film almost the second after I finished watching it, probably to free up space for more pornography and grindcore albums - that's just how I roll. I won't be going out and purchasing this film. Nor will I ever think of it again and recommend it to someone.

On a related note, I was at a party once and took a shit. It flushed perfectly, no hassle there. It was probably a cheap cider shit that came out like rusty water anyway. They generally aren't that difficult to flush. Later on that night, I was messing around in the toilet with some friends and cracked the cistern. Water began leaking all over the floor. I lied and lied and lied in the face of adversity, and got away with it. I enjoyed the rest of the party and hooked up with this girl called Lizzie. She was kinda crazy, which I found out about a week later so I stopped answering her calls. Several months later I saw her in a club and she punched me in the face, knocking the ball out of my nose ring. That kinda annoyed me.

Anyway, I downloaded it. I'm a pirate. Crucify me.

I feel I've angered the film community and now I feel bad, so here is a picture of soft toy my girlfriend bought me. He's pretty cool! http://i.imgur.com/sA9NR.jpg

That film looks fantastic. Thank you for the recommendation. I'm not overly fond of swearing in films but I guess I'll check this out. Going to torrent it immediately! Glad we are cool now.

Qwerty Norris -> RE: Outcast (11/5/2012 2:44:49 PM)

I saw this at the Edinburgh Film Festival nearly 3 years ago.

It's a bit....meh.

Katie Dickie's great in it though.

satanicbearmaster -> RE: Outcast (11/5/2012 2:45:59 PM)

James Cosmo kicks all sort of ass too. His presence commands respect. No matter what he does, he'll always be the big legend that is Angus' father from Braveheart.
