I noticed you didn't confess to your love of Les Mis the other night when I told you I thought it was shit.

I hardly think its a masterpiece, but yes I did keep it pretty quiet!

Les Mis gets worse whenever I accidentally think about it or catch a glimpse of Hathaway and it annoys me more and more to think she's probably going to win an Oscar. Having now seen all the nominees itís even more depressing because with the exception of Sally LOOK AT ME IíM ACTING (and slightly derailing Lincoln) Field her performance is nowhere near as good as Amy Adams or Jacki Weaver (more heart-breaking than any of Anne's snot drenched warbling) and even Helen Hunt is better (as well as naked ) and Iím not a fan of most of her work. Anyway donít want to start another Les Mis debate.

I still haven't seen The Sessions, it looks interesting though, but yeah, I agree that Field is the Lincoln weak link and Weaver or (especially) Adams would be more deserving.

I think Sessions, Life of Pi and Flight are the only films in the big eight categories I haven't seen yet. Life of Pi and Flight I just can't work up any enthusiasm over, but I do want to see The Sessions.

I was walking the dogs the other night and it just popped into my head and I had to sit down. I thought I was about to burst into song instead I burped in a very unladylike manner.

I don'tít think The Sessions is spectacular but I really enjoyed the performances of Hunt/Hawkes and William H Macyís hair, the hair is particularly impressive. Iím seeing Flight this weekend (and Bullhead) and also hoping to get to see Hyde Park which hasnít got great reviews. Iím not hugely interest in Flight but I was surprised to see Washington get a nomination so I want to see why or give my future aneurysm something more to feed on.

Speaking of which...

Lincoln (Steven Spielberg)

Spielberg and his usual cohorts are practically invisible in this one. Michael Kahn's editing is slow-paced and Janusz Kaminski's lighting is barely noticeable, with most of the political machinations being done in darkened, murky rooms - even John Williams' music is more muted than normal. Spielberg instead trusts the material to do the speaking for him, and not only that, trusts the audience to follow material which, at times, is spoken in an almost archaic language with a great deal of titles, names and events thrown at you that only the hardiest of scholars will recognise with familiarity straight away. I'll always respect a film that does this and if this does mean that it's not the most visually exciting or fast-paced thing Spielberg has ever done, it does make it his most restrained which is always a good thing for him - it's certainly not the Amistad that the initial trailers promised. Day-Lewis inhabits Lincoln with a granite, flinty charm and does as good a job as bringing an icon to life as anyone possibly could, Lincoln the man inhabiting that rarified height of a cultural icon almost beyond convincing portrayal - but Day-Lewis reminds you he was human after all. Sally Field seems to have thought taking the opposite approach would help her performance. It doesn't. Tommy Lee Jones has tremendous fun as the fiery Thaddeus Stephens, but personally I thought the perkiest performance came from James Spader as one of the men tasked with the job of finding the votes that Lincoln needs to pass the 13th amendment and abolish slavery. It quivers with importance, but thanks to Spielberg's careful reconstruction of the man and the events he sparked, it never hectors and instead chimes with a quiet relevance rather than shouting it from the rooftops.

Straw Dogs (Sam Peckinpah)

Don't fuck with Dustin Hoffman or his woman. Uneasy, distressing stuff. (4)

As for Washington, he's an actor the Academy always liked and it seems like they're welcoming him back after a decade of really shitty actioners. I just can't get interested.

SPOILERS!

I put Jones, Strathairn and Spader together for my notable performances last month. I think my favourite moment is when heís almost shot, glad to see someone highlight him. Nice review.

It was an Oscar worthy moment, full of pathos and charm. I like Washington but he's not an actor I've ever been all that interested in.

My biggest concern with Spielberg at the moment is that I really liked Tintin and he followed that with one of the worst films I've ever suffered through in my life with War Horse. I really liked Lincoln, so I'm dreading how mawkish his next film will be. I predict a doe-eyed teenage girl will be given the present of a kitten, just before a nuclear bomb explodes and kills everyone except her, the kitten, her good-hearted grandpa and a band of evil-doers who roam the lands pulling out the whiskers of kittens. Kitten, girl and grandpa get separated and have to find each other, but not before kitten is captured by the evil-doers and makes a dramatic escape, rescuing all the other kittens and leading them to freedom. We'll also get a scene where grandpa is shot in the head at point-blank range, only to be shown to have survived in time for the family reunion at the end. Gimli will call it the greatest film ever made.

Sally Field seems to have thought taking the opposite approach would help her performance. It doesn't.

Yep, definitely! Spader was my favourite out of an impressive supporting cast,  the best he has been in many years. David Strathairn and Hal Holbrook also left an impression in slightly less showy roles and Lee Pace was also pretty impressive in his limited screen time. Field is a tough one, I do think she was miscast but if the intention was to show that Mary was pretty mentally unstable then she succeeded, I think Day-Lewis helped ground the theatrics but she is, the most out there of the performances whether that be a good thing or not.

OH MY GOD what have they done to James Bond? I should have known this was going to be a betrayal of the greatness of the series from the moment I saw they changed the gunbarrel. The change of music and improved graphics is nothing short of FUCKING OVER THE LOYAL FANS. Worse, when the film starts up it's all super-serious and about politics - what bullshit! James Bond isn't about that, it's about cool stuff like flying a hot air balloon into an Indian palace! And you know what's even worse? What made me, a LOYAL FAN, pissed off to the very essence of my being? M is a WOMAN! That's right, M, who has always been played by a MAN, is played by a woman, and Bond doesn't even fuck her? What's next? A blonde Bond? A young Q? Why didn't they go the whole hog and have Bond played by Dave Benson-Phillips? Sure, there are some explodey bits, but they aren't punctuated by random scenes that make no sense and aren't funny like the films of my lord and saviour, Roger Moore, so they're shit! They could have been improved by adding some Moore-esque cool, like maybe an invisible car. This clearly shows that Barbara Brocolli known NOTHING about what makes the series great, and should keep to woman stuff like watching Corrie and having periods.

0/10 would not torrent again.

Goldeneye (Campbell, 1995)

OH MY GOD what have they done to James Bond? I should have known this was going to be a betrayal of the greatness of the series from the moment I saw they changed the gunbarrel. The change of music and improved graphics is nothing short of FUCKING OVER THE LOYAL FANS. Worse, when the film starts up it's all super-serious and about politics - what bullshit! James Bond isn't about that, it's about cool stuff like flying a hot air balloon into an Indian palace! And you know what's even worse? What made me, a LOYAL FAN, pissed off to the very essence of my being? M is a WOMAN! That's right, M, who has always been played by a MAN, is played by a woman, and Bond doesn't even fuck her? What's next? A blonde Bond? A young Q? Why didn't they go the whole hog and have Bond played by Dave Benson-Phillips? Sure, there are some explodey bits, but they aren't punctuated by random scenes that make no sense and aren't funny like the films of my lord and saviour, Roger Moore, so they're shit! They could have been improved by adding some Moore-esque cool, like maybe an invisible car. This clearly shows that Barbara Brocolli known NOTHING about what makes the series great, and should keep to woman stuff like watching Corrie and having periods.

0/10 would not torrent again.


Bravo, sir, bravo.
