Not to be picky but isn't that a shot from the Avatar game, not the film?

*Excellent opporunity for a 'lolzz it all looks like a video game'*

Oh and as to your point about 'Up in the Air' and the revelation about Alex, it worked for me, think back to the scene where she lists what she'd want in a man, at the time you think she might be talking about Ryan in some parts or past lovers, but looking at it again it's obvious in retrospect she's talking about her husband, especially the stuff about having to love kids and the stuff about wanting him to earn more (househusband perhaps if she's traveling constantly?).  It's a nice touch and turns around that whole scene from hopeful (it's clear Ryan likes her a lot in this scene and there's a family like atmosphere with Ryan and Alex consoulling Natalie) into a sad one. I liked it.

The stuff I really wasn't keen on in the film was the talking heads of "real" fired people.  Which didn't even make much sense anyway, if it was meant to add a touch of realism to the film it doesn't, as the people were specifically asked to say "what they wished they'd said" when they were fired, rather than their actual reactions.  And it kind of ruins the ending which is fairly ambiguious about how the events have left Ryan, to heavy handed with its "family/friends are important!!" talking heads.

Agreed about the talking heads, interesting point about my complaint.
Fritzl, fuck off, Babe is great
As for the Avatar screenshot, I found it on a blog that said "I've included several shots from Avatar the video game in this post, try and see if you can tell the difference between the "real" film and the game", but I thought this was from the film regardless Should I replace it?

Haha ah ok.   Nah keep it as some subtle statement about the films visuals being the entire film yet they're easily mistaken, or some such.

Fritzl - Avatar's above Germany, Year Zero and you're complaining about Babe?

That's even worse considering Babe's really, really good.

Well, at least the screenshots drew extra attention to my list
Also, since you both haven't seen GY0 (I presume), STFU

I have seen Akira, though, so I can say that Avatar has no place above it with the utmost certainty.

I have seen Germany Year Zero. Why else would I compare it to finding out that KFC is closed?

I've not seen Avatar yet. And Babe is far from "really, really good."

37. A Summer at Grandpa's (1984; Hsiao-hsien Hou)
 
The proper review is in my top 100 films, but I rewatched it as part of an attempt to get my wife into more Asian cinema. The lyrical beauty of HHH's finest work hit me even harder on rewatch and this film has probably climbed towards my top 50 as a result.
 
10/10
 
38. Rhod Gilbert and the Award-Winning Mince Pie (2009)
 
The first stand-up release from the man from Llanbobl. Over the last few years I've gone from mild approval of Gilbert to thinking he's one of the best stand-ups around. His Llanbobl material helps, recognisable as any part of Wales but still a surreal setting, although most of this stand-up is themed around Gilbert's attempts to live in the real world and why it nearly drove him to a nervous breakdown focused around a motorway services and a mince pie. This is observational humour that actually relies on jokes rather than pointing out what everyone figured out 10 years ago and the comedian is hoping that mere recognition factor gets the laughs rather than actually writing material *CoughPeterKaycough*. Good stuff.

14. Quadrat 1 & 2 (1982; Samuel Beckett)

This bewildering little film is an example of Beckett's determination to create art in all possible fields. A robed figure on a dark screen wanders in a pattern to the accompaniment of rhythmic music. He's joined by a second figure, then a third and a fourth, all of whom follow their own pattern around the small screen. They disappear and reappear, all the while keeping to their patterns. This strange dance could seem monotonous to some, but I found it quite distressing. The interpretation is obviously on the individual, but it's been compared in the past to Dore's engravings of Dante, and I can understand it and the idea of them representing guards or prisoners in the underworld is the interpretation I tend more towards. Really not for everyone.

10/10

39. Suffer, Little Children (1983; Alan Briggs)
 
Spoilers

Notorious film that got caught up in the video nasty witchhunts of the 1980s. Made by the students in a drama school, Suffer, Little Children acquired a reputation it didn't really deserve. The claims that it was based on a true story added to its popularity as well. It's a kindness to describe this film as amateurish, a young mute girl, Elizabeth, is left at a children's home. She turns out to be Satanically possessed and soon sets about attacking the other children and making them into her slaves. She forms a bigger and bigger army of pre-teen terrors until Jesus himself pays a visit to stop their antics. I have a fondness for the film based on nostalgia, but it's pretty awful.

Fair enough. I do love it more than most it seems



Features

3. [SAFE] (2nd view, 1995, Todd Haynes) - 4/5
One of the best American films of the nineties is also one of the most underrated. Julianne Moore stars as a lonely housewife who slowly becomes more and more ill. With no obvious medical reason, friends, family and doctors are convinced it's all in her mind. After reading a flyer and meeting people with similar ailments, she believes that she's developed an allergic reactions to toxins in everyday life, so goes off to recuperate in a chemical-free health retreat. It's an intriguing films, and the eerie soundtracks and long, static camera shots help to create a sense of unease. Moore has rarely been better, and reteamed with director Haynes for the acclaimed 2002 film Far From Heaven, and later still in I'm Not There. I'd like to see them work together again.


10. North West Frontier (1st view, 1959, J. Lee Thompson) - 4/5*
Fantastic action-adventure. Kenneth More and Lauren Bacall are tasked with transporting a young Hindu prince safely across rebel Muslim, and do so on an old worn-out train. A script that treads between light-hearted and serious with ease, a fine supporting cast and some brilliantly tense action moments, just very good overall.

36. My Beautiful Laundrette (1st view, 1985, Stephen Frears) - 3/5*
Not bad, but I was expecting more I think. The story went in far too many directions for the running time, it never really felt focussed.

41. Aimée & Jaguar (1st view, 1999, Max Färberböck) - 3/5*
Drama based on the true story of Felice Schragenheim, a Jewish resistance fighter who falls in love with a married woman in wartime Berlin.

44. Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead (1st view, 1990, Tom Stoppard) - 3/5*
Maybe it's because I've never read Hamlet, but I just coulnd't get into this film at all. Gary Oldman and Tim Roth are both great, showing a knack for comedy I never knew they had, and the witty script is often very funny, but I just found it hard to really like.

55. Repulsion (1st view, 1965, Roman Polanski) - 2/5*
My search for the great Roman Polanski continues. I'm beginning to doubt he's ever made one (and don't mention Chinatown. It sucks). This horror has some effective moments, especially with the use of sound, but it's pretty lame overall. And Catherine Deneuve was awful. Really, really bad. The film this reminded me most of all was Eraserhead, and that sucked too.


Shorts

4. French Roast (2008, Fabrice Joubert)
Charming little animated film. Funny and sweet.

2. Julianne Moore as Carol White in [SAFE]
8. Gary Oldman as Rosencrantz in Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead

40. Thirst (2009; Chan-wook Park)
 
Spoilers

An excellent take on the vampire genre from South Korea. A priest, Sang-hyeon (Song Kang-ho) undergoes a radical medical treatment and becomes infected with vampirism. After he becomes the only person to survive the experiments, he earns a cult following who think he is able to cure disease. One of these is an old friend who has married to a girl, Tae-ju, he knew as a child. The girl, Tae-ju is oppressed by her tyrannical mother-in-law and soon Sang-hyeon and Tae-ju begin an affair. The film turns from portrayal of a guilt-ridden man into black comedy, film noir and finally a chilling horror as the priest becomes a predator and his obsession with Tae-ju deepens. However, like all good film noir, she's a far more deadly proposition. When the popular image of vampires is becoming taken over by shit like Twilight and True Blood, it's nice to have films like Thirst and Let the Right One In to make sure the vamps still have some bite left.

9/10

Granny O'Grimm's Sleeping Beauty (Phelan, 2008)

Thanks to Rawlinson for adding the note about the shortlist for Oscar this year.

A pro-evil fairy version of Sleeping Beauty told to a terrified tot by a grandmother who relates a little to closely to the elderly fairy not being invited to the ball.

The animation is fairly basic and, while the tale is occasionally amusing in terms of emphasis, the vocal is poor and clearly sounds like a young woman 'doing' old - I'd have splashed out on a better actor for the part.

French Roast (Joubert, 2008) SPOILERS

After dismissing a beggar without contribution, a well-dressed man realises he doesn't have his wallet to pay for his meal and starts ordering coffee after coffee to try and work out what to do.

The best part is the initial shock, I think, when he realises he is sans wallet (and my mind did drift a bit as it kind of reminded me of one of the vignettes in You, The Living). I didn't really buy it though - I think his temptation to steal could have been better done without overdoing the masked nun thing, ditto the shot and the ending was there just to finish the short off rather than actually working.

'course both could have been masterpieces, they'll still win sod all. W&G are up, after all.

I'm hoping that French Roast, Cat Piano, Partly Cloudy and Loaf and Death make the final 5 (the shortlist is at 10 at the moment) Out of the other 6, there's the Granny Grimm film, which I didn't take to at all.  The other 5 I haven't seen, Runaway, which is by Cordell Barker whose shorts are usually great (Cat Came Back is one of his), Variete, Logorama, Lady and the Reaper and The Kinematograph. The Kinematograph was by the director of The Cathedral, which was ok but nothing amazing.

That's the one that looks like an outtake from a video game or a Linkin' Park video, isn't it?
