Great, I was going to do my review for Silver Linings but Reb decided to put up one of the greatest reviews ever on the forum

I really need to see Eraserhead.

Everyone needs to see and love Eraserhead.

And still do your Silver Linings review.

In my mind I watch the Jodorowsky Dune. And it's magnificent.

Seen a little of Twin Peaks. Mulholland Drive is one of my favourite films. I got half an hour into Lost Highway and stopped watching (I was busy) and I haven't seen Dune since I was about 10

You should basically just watch everything Lynch has ever made.

Lynch is amazing.

We should bully Rhubarb into doing another director poll.

I've seen Elephant Man, Mulholland Drive, Wild At Heart, Inland Empire and Blue Velvet.

3 out of the 5 are terrific films.
1's quite good.
1's a tad average.

He is indeed.

Agreed! Mainly so I can vote for Godard.

Silver Linings Playbook (2012, O'Russell, 1st viewing)

I can see Silver Linings being a film like Up In The Air, where I can acknowledge the films flaws but absolutely adore it unashamedly for my own reasons. A great script and direction from O'Russell is present yes, but the cast (everybody from the incredible Lawrence, to the brilliant Cooper, De Niro and Weaver all the way to Chris Tucker) are all just fantastic. Jennifer Lawrence especially is a force to be reckoned with in the film, her Tiffany is one of 2012's most dynamic and purely magnetic characters and definitely one of the best female performances of the last few years. Not to sell Bradley Cooper short of course, his fractured and at times brilliant Pat is also a stand-out and dare I say it Oscar worthy? Yes, Silver Linings Playbook isn't as monumental in terms of subject matter as Lincoln or Zero Dark Thirty, and it's probably the most low-key film nominated for Best Picture this year minus possibly Amour, but damn if it isn't just a terrific film. In fact it may be the best film apart from Moonrise Kingdom that I've seen from 2012. A re-watch might change my mindset a bit, but this for me is one of those love at first sight things.

Nosferatu (1922, Murnau, 1st viewing)

After a trifecta of 2012 film viewings, I dialled it back 90 years to F.W. Murnau's classic (and apparently unauthorized) take on the Dracula story. While it's effectiveness as a horror film is diluted by years and years of watching vampires on the big screen, this would have been incredible to see when it was released. The most memorable thing for me other then Max Schreck as Orlok/Nosferatu/Dracula, was some of the unbelievably striking images Murnau produced. Some were genuinely unnerving and some were quite beautiful (Ellen at the beach for example). Murnau's use of light and shadow in this film is absolutely fantastic and definitely elevated the film up to a level where I can see why it's known as a horror classic, then again it's importance should never be understated by anyone really. I do much prefer Sunrise to this, but Nosferatu is hugely important for any film education.

Not sure why I don't like Nosferatu. I wasn't even expecting much when I first saw it, having not long been disappointed by Metropolis.

A least favourite films list? Hmmm. Not really considered that before. But how much hatred could I launch at Brando, French New Wave, Ghibli and Roman Polanski films before I get banned?

I don't know but you'll probably bring me to tears within 5 minutes.

Which is coincidentally what Matty's mother does to me during sex.

2. Les Miserables (1st view, 2012, Tom Hooper) - 5/5*

SPOILERS

Les Mis, Les Mis
Directed by Tom Hooper
Les Mis, Les Mis
It really is quite super

Because I am
An uncultured troglodyte
I was unaware
of Jean Valjean's plight

As much as I
Enjoyed the whole production
It never got better
Than the introduction

With all the slaves.
Lugging in the ship
It was the on-
-ly time it felt epic

I wanted to laugh
At the start when Russell Crowe
StarTED to SING
Like A child IN a Christmas SHOW.

But in the end
I understood his pain
And was so sad
When he jumped in the Seine

Hugh Jackman, his part he did brilliantly play
He is very good
As is Anne Hathaway
They should get Oscars

But it's not all great

Eddie Redmayne is as useless in this
As he has been is in everything
He simply cannot act

And the love triangle sucks

I didn't end up caring at at all
For the three young leads

Eighteen Thirty Two
That's when it all started to get boring

THis section really needed a lot more
Valjeeeeeeeeeeeeean and Javarre

And Sacha Baron Cohen
Who I tend to like, played it wrong
He's no Alun Armstrong

But the film did not feel long

In fact it flew by
Unlike Django unchained
Which felt like 10 hours.
This went much faster

Les Mis, Les Mis
I really can't deny
I shed a tear
When Jean Valjean did die

Despite the fact
Much could've been done diff'rently
I loved this fim
Bring on the DVD



1. Les Miserables (1st view, 2012, Tom Hooper) - 5/5*
2. The Beaver (1st vew, 2011, Jodie Foster) - 3/5*

Margin Call (J.C. Chandor)

Very slick to the point where it has the faint whiff of a high-gloss TV movie about it, but this tale of a financial firm discovering they're on the brink of disaster and desperately trying to cover their own backs has a high-power cast (and erm, Demi Moore) that gives it a veneer of class. And Zachary Quinto's eyebrows are amazing. (3.5)

You know the problem with a least favourite films list? Unless you keep detailed reviews of everything, you're always going to be going on memory, which makes a review nearly impossible without a rewatch. And who in the right minds is going to get copies of 100 films they hated and rewatch them to see if they hated them as much as they remember? And if you don't have fresh memories of these films it becomes impossible to argue with those who get pissed off when you dislike one of their favourite films. If I did a least favourites list, Mississippi Burning would be near the ten worst of all time, because I think it's a badly made truth-distorting white saviour fantasy. But not having seen it in a long long time, I'd be unable to answer any specifics. So the moment someone would come along and say "what about this scene in the film?" I'd probably be unable to respond because I haven't seen the film in a long time and not even the combined mothers of this forum could entice me to watch it again.

Right - you lot better be right. I can see the final Oscar film today, but it basically involves a day out to do so (commitment to my hobby occasionally means swinging through Edinburgh )

If I hate it I shall haunt you all

Which one is the final one for you? You didn't want to see Silver Linings or Django if memory serves.

I didn't, but it's the only one still to tick off the list. I've had an exhausting week. It was going to be Lincoln again on Sunday because he couldn't go with me before but I think I'll be too tired for another 3 hours in the cinema.
