Solaris or Stalker are not District 9 or Star Trek in terms of balls-out fun, true, but fascinating and interesting nontheless. That dismassal of the work must be the work of a tit. Who must be eliminated.


I don't think I've dismassed them - does that mean I miss the elimination round?


I meant dismissal (DAMN YOU INTERNET EXPLORER AND YOUR LACK OF SPELLCHECKER). We can still eliminate you though if you want to.

I dunno, i giggled like a schoolgirl at the references to the old series. Flawed as it might have been, I got quite a bit of enjoyment out of it from that angle.

It is entirely your choice. I dont tend to count student shorts (unless they are by a now big director) and as an extension, that would include any amateur shorts.

A Night at the Opera (Sam Wood, 1935)- USA - 9/10

My first film starring the Marx brothers, and I loved it. While not as laugh-out-loud funny as I expected, it always left a grin on my face and left me entertained throughout its running time. The script is witty, the slapstick always hits the right note, good direction, it has a really touching romance at its heart and the performances by the comic trio are absolutely great.

French Roast (Fabrice Joubert, 2008)- FRA - 8.2/10

A solid, fun, farcical little short with a sweet conclusion.


Granny O' Grimm's Sleeping Beauty (Nicky Phelan, 2008)- IRA - 7.7/10 

A fun little short, with a crazed grandma unintentionally scaring her grandchild with the named fairytale. Hilarious, if not lacking a certain identity (it doesn't look much different from something made by Pixar).

The Lady and the Reaper
(Javier Recio Garcia, 2009)- SPN - 8.7/10

My favorite from the Oscar shorts (not including Logorama, but yes, including the excellent W&G short), a doctor and the reaper battle over the life of an old lady. Excellent from the macabre opening to the dark-toned ending.

THat's just wrongness beyond wrongness. Just because we expect a standard beyond mere superb from Aardmann, doesn't mean we should take them for granted when they achieve it.

The Wadja trilogy was shown on FilmFour about 18 months or 2 years ago - probably due to come up again. I'd agree Kanal is the pick of them - the underground sequences are hugly impressive, and it stands as an important and sobering tribute to the those who endured such a hellish existence.

28. High Plains Drifter (1973, Eastwood)
SPOILERS AHEAD
Disappointing, unfortunately. This is the 7th film I've seen that is directed by Clint and apart from Unforgiven, which is 100% awesome, they all have good parts and OK parts and thus are merely solid overall. That said, they're all enjoyable, this one perhaps especially so. It's a shame I found out about the ghost thing before watching the film, I might have liked it more otherwise. It's very cool in its unflinching violence and though I'll admit Clint's acting range is limited (apart from Unforgiven, even in my favourite film, his only distinguishing characteristic as a character is coolness; well, maybe The Beguiled as well but I don't like it that much), he's great at what he does, and he certainly uses the script to full potential here. It's shot nicely and scored well...
A shame, then, that its misogynistic elements and a general muddled state prevent it from becoming a play on High Noon (if Coop had died there and then come back as a ghost they would be superficially similar ), but I'll still give it a 7

11. The Holy Mountain (Alejandro Jodorowsky, 1973) - 4.5/5
Superb, and a lot funnier than I expected. I barely recognised any of the religious symbolism, but the main message seemed pretty clear. They need to do way instain societal controls> who kill thier humanity. It's clearly deeper than that, but there's no need for me to explain.

The imagery was truly stunning at times, so I look forward to watching it in a version of better quality.
Thankfully, its ending can cast aside most calls of pretentiousness.

4. Woodstock (1st view, 1970, Michael Wadleigh) - 4/5*
Three reasons I wish I was born about 30 years earlier. First, so I could see the moon landings as they happened. Second, so I could be a hippie in 60's America. Third, the music better music back then. Woodstock combines those last two reasons and the director's cut of the film is three and a half hours of weird clothing, sights you'd probably not want to see again, peace, love and cool music. Showing an event that came at the end of an era, the film really does capture the times and the mood of the people there. Yet, despite its epic runtime,there still no room for CCR and barely any Jefferson Airplane. Boooo! I should get the DVD I suppose.


32. The Bedford Incident (1st view, 1965, James B. Harris) - 4/5*
Cold War thriller starring Richard Widmark as a captain of a destroyer intent on chasing down a Russian nuclear submarine. Sidney Poitier is a visiting reporter and the two frequently clash. Very effective.

The middle section of The Lady and the Reaper is obviously inspired by back and forth sequences in Looney Tunes, but Jones et al actually remembered to write jokes.

I thought it was quite funny actually, nopt entirely original true but kinetic and imaginative enough to keep my interest.

I think the problem is I didn't see any imagination there at all, just a series of  grabs between the doctor and the reaper. It's got a beautiful beginning and the pay-off is great but the middle section was horrible, even the near-kiss just felt forced rather than a natural gag.

Probably, but I liked how the life-death tunnel was nothing but a bunch of drawers which the doctor and death fight on the patients life. If it was full of movement.
