Olympus Has Fallen is a terrific old school hard edged action film.It was a rare pleasure to watch a new action movie with hard core violence and fucking swearing! It was ridiculous of course but a lot of the best action movies are.

Couldnt beleive it got a 15 rating especially after that woman gets horribly beaten up.What was great about that scene is that you REALLY want to see Gerard Butler kick their arses after that.

Agreed on the violence and swearing, but that's about it. My enjoyment of the film was mostly ruined by the annoying use of shaky-cam. Now, just so you know, this technique doesn't always pull me out of a film (Saving Private Ryan, The Hurt Locker, Star Trek, and every Paul Greengrass film, just to name a few exceptions). In fact, this is one of the only times where it's bugged me at all; I was sitting there thinking, "Hey, that looks like a cool action scene - now just keep the fucking camera still and let me actually SEE it!" Was very, very irritating. Whereas masters of the technique, like Greengrass, use it to convey the urgency of the action whilst still making it clear (to me at least) what is actually happening in the scene.

(True, though, the scene where Melissa Leo gets beaten to hell was impressively brutal)

Yeah I'm guessing I just shared one hell of an unpopular opinion by saying that

Not really. I felt exactly the same way. Will definitely watch it again sometime though, and I really hope I grow to love it.


I see the Master as kinda like Paul Thomas Anderson's INLAND EMPIRE, where for certain people (even who have admired his work in the past) were just left a bit cold by it, at least on first viewing, but also it might just be one for hardcore PTA fans. I think a big part of the mixed reaction was because of the length and lack of story. Then again like Lynch, Anderson has always transended classic narrative conventions
in favour of music, atmosphere, visual style and great performances. On first viewing I had mixed feelings on the Master, but having watched it a couple more times consider it another classic! Sorry for the long winded reply just wanted to make my position clear.

Didn't think much to Cars, so won't bother with Cars 2, or Planes for that matter

The thing is, with the exception of Hard Eight, I've seen and loved all of his other films. Boogie Nights and Magnolia blew me away (on first viewing as well), and although I don't do movie lists anymore, if I was to write up my all-time favourites, There Will Be Blood would probably be at #3. When I heard about these mixed reactions to The Master, I just thought "Well, that was the case with Punch Drunk Love, and I bloody loved that film!" So I wasn't swayed at all, and I had total faith in ol' Paul (no rhyme intended, I swear). That was what made the experience of finally watching it such a letdown. I will say, though, that Phoenix's performance was utterly brilliant, and he should have won the Oscar (as much as I love Lincoln).

Anyway, whilst I technically can't call myself a hardcore PTA fan (due to not having seen Hard Eight), I'm definitely more than a mere admirer of his work. That's why my disappointment with The Master felt so strange. Again, I really hope I grow to love it (as you have), but I do want to leave it a while before my next viewing.

I actually quite like Cars.



Same here. It gets a bum rap because its cars, and animated vehicles aren't anything new, progressive or interesting .

But... the story, characters and humour are all terrific, I think, and I much prefer it to Up, Wall-E and The Incredibles. Ratatouille I think is my fave Pixar.




I definitely wouldn't go as far as putting it above the films you've mentioned (I might just prefer it to Monsters Inc, but that would be an unfair call at this point as I haven't seen Inc in about 10 years). However, it's cool to see it getting some love.

I'd say Cars is to Pixar what The Terminal is to Spielberg; both films get a lot of crap for reasons I just can't fathom. Sure, they have their flaws, and Cars isn't one of Pixar's masterpieces just as The Terminal isn't one of the 'Berg's. But they are both really well-made, funny and heartfelt films that I enjoy the hell out of every time I watch them.

Worthy call on Ratatouille, by the way. Fantastic film.

Cars just could have been so much better had they not casted Owen Wilson. The guy has such a, for lack of a better word, hate-able tone in its voice. Would never say cars is bad, though. It's incredibly fun, so is cars 2, but it just lacks comparing to about everything else Pixar has done.

And, amazingly, I agree with you!! Not as good as the original or maybe Robocop 2, but a solid remake which has its own identity.

I didn't like Incredibles on first viewing but it's grown on me.


Unpopular Opinion: Toy Story 3 is below-par Pixar and little more than a tired rehash of the first two films [though it's still fairly good]. Cars 2 is better.

I must reiterate: I did enjoy it. I thought it was fun and charming, but I just didn't find it THAT amazing. The problem is, because everyone else loves it so much, anything I say - positive though it is - ultimately sounds like a criticism.

I'm pretty much with you Whistler. I thought it was more clever-clever than just clever for a lot of it, some of it a bit smug in its cleverness (the slightly lame satire eg) - all of which are also issues I have with Cloudy too. At times I wondered who the audience were supposed to be - when you start talking about things being circumscribed by the whatever it's hardly the kiddies even if you do end up with the tedious 'oh the daddy son thing' again which US animation can't seem to get away from. But again - that was quite clever. But for the most part it felt a little cold, to me. I admired it - from a distance. But I think it is made to be sold more to adults for them to think it's cool - the Empire ref and subverting superhero stuff is clearly aimed there.

The main thing the kids took from it was the trip home after one found that damn song on his phone - very very catchy. God I hate it!

I can see your points. It was weird, there wasn't one child in the screening I was at (which was fairly full) and yet all the trailers were for kids' films, The Pirate Fairy, Rio 2, etc. I don't know what it's like in the UK but in Ireland there are very few showings after 7 which I found odd. It is definitely conflicted in that the makers, I feel, made a film for adults but obviously the marketing and studio want to aim it more at kids for merchandising purposes. Despite all that though I did love it.

But c'mon guys I think we're forgetting the real issue here. Dr Lenera said Cars 2 was better than Toy Story 3. What. The. Fuck. I get that people don't like Toy Story 3, but Cars 2 is absolute pants!!

Our showing was quite adult heavy as well. I could understand the previews at the weekend might be, but it was showing earlier in Scotland because of our half term and, like you, we had those ads (and how the hell does some DTV Tinker Bell crap get a cinema trailer? I'd disown my niece before I paid money for it )

Didn't the last Tinker Bell film get a cinema release? I vaguely remember Kermode reviewing one. It's depressing that they're getting made at all.

Not even sure how much of an unpopular opinion this is - noone really likes the SW prequels...

After watching a bit of star wars 3 on itv at the weekend, despite having so much wrong with them, the thing that sticks out the most for me and spoils my enjoyment of them initially is that the new films look so bad. Even if the scripting, dialogue, acting and shot selection were on point, the scenes are over complicated, the CGI looks terrible, even the shadows dont look right. Dont get me started on the clone troopers - everything looks so damn ugly.

That said, hugely looking forward to seeing what Disney and Abrams are going to come up with.

Aye, I always thought the worst thing about those films was the terrible dialogue and acting but having watched them again recently for the first time since they were on at the pictures I can safely say the near-unwatchable special effects spectacularly trump the odd clunky line or wooden delivery. Everything's bright and shiny (or orange), it all looks weightless and apart from the actors there's nothing remotely solid-looking on screen (though in terms of performance most of those are pretty see-through too).

This is exactly what I had meant to say. Its so frustrating - especially so considering that a load of the action scenes involving real actors are replaced with cgi doubles anyway. It is such an ugly looking film.

Every SW fan likes the prequels.

The original theatrical versions of the original trilogy should never ever be released again on any home entertainment format.

Revenge Of The Sith is superior to A New Hope and Return Of The Jedi.
