    Of course. Solid enough film.


    Put "2 Fast 2 Furious" in B&W and Se7en thinks he's watching a Bergman film.
    I find the Metal Gear Solid series to be mediocre at best.

      Godfather is a snoozefest as proven by the fact that every time I try and watch it or one of it's sequels it puts me to sleep.

        • A Day in the Country - 8/10

          Interesting unfinished film from Jean Renoir that starts off as a story about a carefree (rich) family on vacation in the country and ends up being a sort of cautionary tale. I think Renoir wanted to make something more romantic here but instead the ending can be read in an extremely dark way. Interesting little film.


          Whitewash - 8/10

          Brilliant minimalistic survival/drama piece. Thomas Hayden Church is fantastic here and it was NOT what I was expecting. Riveting, strangely exciting and well made if perhaps a little too slight for its own good.

            No chance, weed sometimes helps me watch a movie more even if I find what I've seen pretty boring.

              You have to see the movie in the context of the times, 1932 is a different world to now. The freaks weren't even allowed to eat near the actors and crew on set. If the freaks were portrayed as evil it would likely be a dumb horror film with nothing to offer. However its shocking, tackles taboos and pushes boundaries, everything a horror film should do! An absolute classic.

              Edit: Audiences were freaked out by black people in 1932, imagine how they would react to a man with half a body or someone with no limbs.
              I understand that. That's why I was shocked by how the freaks were portrayed with such humanity and compassion. I'm not complaining, I really enjoyed the film, it just wasn't what I was expecting. Audiences must've been beside themselves when they saw a black man crawling on the floor with no limbs at all!

                    Freaks belongs to a time when 'social cinema' was a force in movies. It's a much better film, but it's basically of a kind with 1938's Child Bride, a quasi-documentary about underage marriage in Appalachia which would be banned as child porn and its producers charged with felonies if it were made today.

                    Child Bride was a government funded film which begins it’s sermon with: “These child marriages must be stopped!” Predictably, the film then wallows in its own tawdry agenda. Written and directed by the rightfully forgotten hack, Harry Reiver, Child Bride is a ripe candidate for one to the most disturbing examples of unintentional weirdness.

                    “Here is a page from the Book of Life… in Thunderhead Mountain. We do not aim to ridicule the back yonder folk, but if our story abolishes their child marriages, then it will have served its purpose.” If the music from Deliverance (1972) starts coming to mind, then take it as a warning: Be afraid. Be very afraid. The only thing missing is the horror horn and fear flasher from Chamber of Horrors (1966).

                    Still Child Bride (1938 )Ma and Pa Colton (Dorothy Carroll & George Humphreys) don’t like no child marriage. They even have a book lying on their front porch saying it’s a crime, which is a tad ironic since their eleven year-old Jennie (Shirley Mills) does lotsa provocative stretching and shows plenty o’ leg in her homemade miniskirt, cut up to her crotch (the ‘dress’ looks like it was cut with lopsided scissors), while doing her early morning chores before trotting off to school.

                    Jennie’s sort-of mountain boyfriend Freddie (Bobby Bolinger) stops by to accompany her to school, but not before they engage in adolescent hijinks and argue like an old married couple after Jennie takes a tumble in the hog den.

                    The school marm, Miss Carol (Diana Durrell) is on a mission to stop all the child marriages taking place on Thunderhead Mountain. “Miss Carol’s sayin’ dangerous stuff to our women folk,” says one mountain fellar as he spits out a wad of Beech-nut. “Isn’t it better to have a woman for 30 years than a child for 15?” asks Miss Carol. “Child marriages must go!” (This line is spoken directly to the camera, just in case you missed it). This position earns Miss Carol the enmity of Jake (Warner Richmond) who has it in mind to take little Jennie for his… Child Bride!

                    Miss Carol has a Yankee lawyer, named Charles (Frank Martin, the poor man’s square-jawed leading man) for a fiancee. Charles is trying to stick his nose where it don’t belong when he tries to put an end to child brides. What is Jake and his henchmen gonna do? Well, they’re gonna put on some black robes, light their torches, and show us what the Amerikkka al-Qaeda looked like in 1938.

                    Jake and his henchmen abduct poor, well-meaning Miss Carol (in a silk nightie, strategically ripped to show off thighs and collar bone) and, just when it looks like the scene’s developing into a precursor to Catherine Deneuve taking a lashing against a tree, Angelo (dwarf Angelo Rossitto from Freaks) shows up to save the day, with Pa Colton bringing up the flank!

                    Next, throw in a skinny dipping scene with the eleven year-old leading lady baring it in the buff, as Jake salivates from afar (nope, not kidding). Pa Colton is a considerable roadblock to Jake’s pedo ambitions. Naturally, with Pa being the hero, one would think he’s a paragon of virtue. You’ll realize differently when he whallops his mouthy ma (who always seems to be on the verge of a major wardrobe malfunction).

                    You may have to flip a coin to determine what’s more disturbing: the protagonist beatin’ on his wife or the camera’s leering close-up of Jennie’s cleavage (which boggles the mind since, at eleven, she has no cleavage).

                    A hillbilly wedding ceremony between Jake and Jennie indicates a descent into yester-Hell, but it is essentially a late thirties exploitation oater, so a happy ending is in store. Of course, that depends on your interpretation of “happy” because before the never-thought-it-would-end ending, Jennie and Freddie engage in some lip to lip contact, strongly indicating a child bride to child groom consummation to come!
                    Do you know the terror of he who falls asleep?
                    To the very toes he is terrified
                    For the ground gives way under him
                    And the dreams begin...

                      • Kingsman: The Secret Service - 3.5/5

                        This film is a whole lot of fun. It's Matt Vaughan in Kick Ass mode but this time poking fun at the spy genre. It's funny and violent in equal measure with a really top cast who are all just enjoying themselves. Good to see Colin Firth playing against type in a role that really suits him. Great, kick back and just enjoy entertainment.

                            • Mutants



                              Really disappointing. It offered nothing new to the zombie genre and was actually quite boring most of the time. I didn't care for any of the characters, although I did find some of the relationship between Sonia and Marco quite touching.

                              It's well-made (although there's a little too much shaky cam) and the lst 20 minutes are quite entertaining, if generic. I'd avoid.

                                This one of my favorite films. I think its a fantastic love story. When she screams and he hears her, even though he has gotten sick....fuck. An amazing scene. : )

                                You should check out the directors American speaking film, he filmed it in Canada though. Home Sweet Home, 2013. It is also great. David Morley has my attention.
