I seem to remember this being pretty damn fantastic when I saw it back in the day. Certainly one of Paxton's best performances. I'll have to check it out again, see if my memory isn't playing tricks on me.

I saw it at the cinema and its a mini noir fave of mine. Its hyped for sure, and not quite there with the likes of the last seduction or red rock west, but i think its a cracking thriller

Terminator Salvation

Utter bollocks. A plot that makes no sense, a performance from Bale that's soooo over the top it's untrue and yet more lines from previous Terminator movies massively shoehorned in to completely run any tension your audience may have built up at that point. The best one being Bale's delivery of 'I'll be back'. It's an Arnie catchphrase, not a Termintor catchphrase McG you massive tool.

It's a world populated with massive killer robots that are awesome. So why, on God's earth would you have the old generic 'post-apocolyptic raider-blokes gone bad try to rape the lead girl' scene?

The ending. Wtf?

So Sam Worthington has broken his programming, joined up with the humans, thinks and feels like any other human and when John Conner's heart looks a bit iffy, he just volunteers to die so Conner can have it? And everyone just stands round going 'yeah alright then, that sounds fine'. Really!?!

Credit where credit's due though, great effects and awesome sound. Except for the Motorbike terminators, they were a bit shoddy.

Pandorum

imdb

Ben Foster and Dennis Quaid wake up on a spaceship after a long hypersleep with no memory. The ship's power is down. The crew that should have woken them up are no-where to be seen. What's happened and where has everyone gone?

Not bad, but a bit forgettable. Good opening, it does a very good job of drip feeding the viewer with small bit of the puzzle to keep things ticking over and you do find yourself wanting to know the going ons. Unfortunately let down by a pretty shonky ending that has one too many elements of jeopardy that just confuse things. Worth a watch if you like your Sci-fi. Definitely better than Terminator Salvation.

Felon

imdb

Stephen Dorff and Val Kilmer indie. Dorf is a regular joe working man

who when confronted by an intruder in his house accidentally kills him and is convicted of involuntary manslaughter. A tale of how he survives in the brutal wolrd of a maximum security state prison.

Really good solid film this, grabs you and keeps going. Terrific performances all round, Val Kilmer is one of the scariest, hardest bastards I've ever seen on film. Recommended.

Yeah you need to be at least 28 to understand North by Northwest. How silly of me.

Meh.

It looked great but that was all there is to it. There are numerous cases of scenes that simply drag on for way too long. They don't add anything in my opinion but only make the viewing more annoying. They could've easily cut 20 minutes to speed things along.

It's not a bad film but I just did not enjoy it as much as I thought I would.

From Wikipedia:

In an extensive list of "1001 Greatest Movie Moments" of all time, the British movie magazine Empire in its August 2009 issue ranked the cropduster scene at number one: "The Number One Greatest Movie Moment" (number two was the bicycle/moon silhouette from E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial and number three was "Bond, James Bond" from Dr. No).

I'm not saying you're wrong or anything. Opinions and all that, but man...

I remember being quite shocked by the opening

the raid at the drug dealers house in which Thornton and co put plastic bags over everyone's head and suffocate them.

If I'm remembering rightly.

You are right. As I said in my mini-review, the opening is great as is two-thirds of the film but it blows it with the crappy ending.

Paxton is awesome in it though.

Why is it being hailed as the best scene of all time? By what criteria?

Maybe if I had seen the movie when it came out at the time I would've been blown away. Why is it that There Will Be Blood (also a slow paced flick) manages to keep me captivated through out but NbNW does not?

Everyone knows that the cinema appreciation gland doesn't reach maturity until the age of 29.

:) I should've known.

:omg: I should've known.

Heres a few grabs from various sites/reviews:

In a movie crammed with impressive locales, from Mount Rushmore to Manhattan's swank Plaza Hotel, an empty prairie forever holds our imagination. When Cary Grant's hunted advertising executive finds himself alone in the forlorn landscape, he learns director Alfred Hitchcock's hard lesson: You're not safe anywhere. A quaint-looking biplane drones into view, buzzing closer and closer, forcing a terrified Grant to take cover in a cornfield. Then Hitch springs his mordant joke: The plane is, of course, a crop duster, and thick clouds of poison begin to fall from the sky. The scene lasts nearly 10 minutes - an unthinkable indulgence by today's rapid-fire pacing - but not a second is wasted.
The famous crop duster scene in North by Northwest is praised highly in all circles as the perfect combination of suspense, thrill, special effects and cinematography (not to mention sound editing, acting, set construction and irony)
In the film's most-renowned and brilliant sequence, the crop-dusting sequence, Roger is lured into the flat countryside (of neighboring Indiana) by enemy spies on the pretext of meeting and connecting with the fabled Kaplan - his non-existent double. The dapper businessman arrives by bus at a barren road-crossing out in wide-open farm country surrounded by plowed-up dirt and cornfields, incongruously dressed in a neat suit in bright sunlight. [The actual filming site was located north of Bakersfield, CA, outside the towns of Wasco and Delano, just east of the intersection of Corcoran Road and Garces Highway (155).] He is entirely exposed and vulnerable - a modern, urban individual without any amenities or artificial resources - there isn't even background music on the soundtrack until the climax of the set-piece. Surrealistically, suspense slowly builds as cars pass through the desolate area. A truck sprays him with road dust. A car drops a man on the other side of the road from him to wait for a bus - is this man Kaplan? A buzzing crop-dusting plane is engaged in dusting a nearby field. The man remarks that it is odd to have a small plane crop-dusting a crop on a field devoid of crops:

That's funny...That plane's dustin' crops where there ain't no crops.

After the man boards a bus (a symbol of civilization) and it drives away (leaving Thornhill defenseless), the distant, innocent and harmless crop-spraying plane immediately and without warning terrorizes him, swooping down like a bird of prey out of a clear blue sky. It flies almost at ground level as it sprays machine-gun fire. Thornhill ducks for cover from the strafing attack, but there is nowhere to hide and no way to defend himself in the vast expanse of the setting - it is the third vicious attack on his life. The plane circles and returns a few times as he fails to flag down and stop a car.

Thornhill runs for cover in an open cornfield, but the bi-plane showers him with a load of poisonous, white powdery pesticide to flush him out. He returns to the road and runs in front of an approaching semi-trailer Magnum Oil truck - flagging it down and forcing it to stop. He falls under the gasoline truck's front bumper as the plane uncontrollably crashes into the truck's gas tank. After a terrific explosion, the two truck drivers shout that they should run away to avoid harm from more explosions. Other drivers in pickup trucks stop to watch the fireball, giving Roger an opportunity to jump into one of the onlookers' vacated trucks and head back to Chicago.

Again, i'm not saying you're wrong or anything, its just quite bemusing you chose THAT scene as a point of criticism without realising what a sacred cow it is. Like going to the louvre and saying "yeah it was alright but a lot of the paintings were shit, like this small one of a moody looking bint sitting by some hills.

Dellamorte Dellamore - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109592/

A cemetery man must kill the dead a second time when they become zombies.

I know this is loved by a few people around these parts but I found it very boring indeed. It was well shot but the script was garbage and spent ages going nowhere interesting whilst the arty flourishes sat at odds with the general crapiness of the film. At least I've finally seen it now.

House - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0076162/

The Janus website does a good job at describing a film that is largely indescribable: How to describe Nobuhiko Obayahshi’s 1977 movie House? As a psychedelic ghost tale? A stream-of-consciousness bedtime story? An episode of Scooby Doo as directed by Dario Argento? Any of the above will do for this hallucinatory head trip about a schoolgirl who travels with six classmates to her ailing aunt’s creaky country home, only to come face to face with evil spirits, bloodthirsty pianos, and a demonic housecat. Too absurd to be genuinely terrifying, yet too nightmarish to be merely comic, House seems like it was beamed to Earth from another planet. Or perhaps the mind of a child: the director fashioned the script after the eccentric musings of his eleven-year-old daughter, then employed all the tricks in his analog arsenal (mattes, animation, and collage) to make them a visually astonishing, raucous reality.

The MoC transfer is really good and it was great to see the film in all its batshit glory. It is easy to say the film is a failure - it's neither funny or scary - but it is so visually inventive and fun that you can't help but fall in love with it.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0458525/

After seeking to live a normal life, Logan sets out to avenge the death of his girlfriend by undergoing the mutant Weapon X program and becoming Wolverine.

I had heard it was bad but I wasn't expecting Ghost Rider levels of woefulness. In fact it may be worse because at least Nic Cage's performance was entertaining. The script is a mess, the CGI never convincing and they miscast nearly every major character. It even made X-Men 3 look competent which is a pretty amazing feat.

Seven Pounds - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0814314/

An IRS agent with a fateful secret embarks on an extraordinary journey of redemption by forever changing the lives of seven strangers.

NOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooo

So disappointing dude. The script is not garbage the script is genius! "you have a wonderful estuary". I can't believe anyone would attribute the word boring to this film. It is so chock full of weirdness and absurdity and moves at an acceptable pace. It has a unique atmosphere and even more unique setup. The wonderful cinematography juxtaposed with the total mentalness of the whole thing is what makes it so great. And I loved the relationship between the two caretakers. Genuinely sad at the end. I'm actually speechless.

That whole scene in town with the dude on the motorbike! the magnificent breasts, the snowglobe at the end. Just so much good stuff.

The breasts were pretty much the standout moment from the film.

I think when it comes to watching a lamberto bava or michele soavi movie or any others of that ilk (d'amato, deodato etc) you have to first readjust your barometer. In the grand scheme of things Dellamorte really is nothing more than a 2 star movie. But in the world of European horror, with its terrible dubbing, semi pro acting, nonsense plots etc it really is head and shoulders above most of its kind. Its way up there with Nightmare city, Stage fright, Demons, Inferno, Hardcover (USA) etc. All terrible films in realty, but the very best in their sub genre.

I just don't see it though. I'm used to European horror of this kind so I was expecting poor acting, dubbing and a largely nonsensical story. What I wasn't expecting was to be bored. Maybe I was in the wrong mood and I need to watch it again but save for the odd moment it was totally unmemorable.

Nathalie... - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0348853/

Nathalie is the name a Parisian prostitute assumes for a special mission or "private investigation." She is engaged in this unusual and secretive task by a professional, upper-middle-class wife who fears that her husband is unfaithful to her. Nathalie has to seduce the clueless husband and regularly report all details of her relationship with him, including his most intimate sexual preferences in bed. Nathalie is stunning, charming, and cunning. Can Nathalie and her reports to the mistrustful wife be trusted? Is the middle aged husband indeed unfaithful?

The US remake, renamed Chloe, is released this month so I was curious to see the original. Within 20 minutes you can guess the revelation and it seems as if the film is missing a third act altogether. What does hold your attention is the stunningly beautiful Emmanuelle Béart and her candid reports of sex. The film is very successful at creating a highly eroticised atmosphere without showing anything. It is evident from the trailer for the remake that they are being more explicit with sex which misses the point of the original somewhat.

Collosus: The Forbin Project http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0064177/

1970 sci fi flick about the entire defence system of the USA being put into the hands of a supercomputer. Comparisons with Skynet are obvious of course, but this is a politer time, so there's no robots or anything, just a good dose of cold war paranoia. Performances and characterisation aren't the best, but the reason this is a killer flick is the icy presence of the computer and how it develops over the course of the film. Set design is great too. I'd give it four missile silos out of five.

I saw Chloe yesterday, oddly, it's had an early release (no pun intended) in Korea.

It's ok, quite tense but also a tad laborious. I wont spoil anything or go into detail because it hasn't been released anywhere yet but it's saving grace is the beautiful lead actress who performs very well, and an explicit scene involving Julianne Moore (could be considered gross).

Shes_Crushed_1.jpg

For lovers of bad films,and i mean bad. This should be right up your alley. It has no redeeming elements at all,just annoying characters who do things even characters in cliche horror films would balk at.

The acting is shit. The levels of torture porn that it sinks to are disgusting,the editing is weird and all over the place. And it features a guy who is the biggest pussy i've ever seen in a movie. This guy will get your blood boiling at what an absolute enormous asshole he is.

And it actually contains the line when someone is fucking the psycho woman up the ass "I have to go back to work but i've got your shit on my dick" :(

Here's the trailer NSFW

Shifty - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1104126/

Shifty, a young crack cocaine dealer in London, sees his life quickly spiral out of control when his best friend returns home. Stalked by a customer desperate to score at all costs, and with his family about to turn their back on him for good, Shifty must out-run and out-smart a rival drug dealer, intent on setting him up for a big fall. As his long time friend Chris, confronts the dark past he left behind him, Shifty is forced to face up to the violent future he's hurtling towards.

This could have been so much better if it didn't fall into the same drug dealer cliché that we have seen time and time again. Riz Ahmed and Daniel Mays are excellent as Shifty and Chris, they spark off each other well and their relationship is interesting. The problem is that half way through the film this is ditched for the predictable drug revenge story and the whole film loses its way.

The Class - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1068646/

Teacher and novelist François Bégaudeau plays a version of himself as he negotiates a year with his racially mixed students from a tough Parisian neighborhood.

Perhaps I'm missing something but I really don't understand why this won the Palme d'Or. Maybe it is an allegory about modern day France, a racially divided country and the role state plays. Maybe it is just purely about the struggle that teachers have trying to teach a bunch of kids that don't won't to learn in a system that doesn't help either party. Whatever it is I'd question why it had to be a constructed drama rather than a proper documentary. This pseudo-documentary style didn't work for me because you are constantly questioning what is likely to be true and what is purely constructed to create drama. A straight doc, for me at least, would have been far more compelling and gone deeper into the subject than something that is ultimately quite shallow.

**

Reconstruction - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0366943/

Late one evening, Alex suddenly abandons his girlfriend, Simone, to follow the beautiful Aimee. In his encounter with Aimee, time and place dissolve for him and he becomes a stranger to Simone, towards whom he cannot return. Alex's future, is Aimee's love. But will he have the courage to embrace it? A psychological romantic drama, about a man, who forgets about his past and must put his faith in love, in order to gain a future.

I'm still undecided about this one. On the one hand it is a beautifully shot film dealing with love in an abstract and thought provoking way. On the other it is a film in love with its own concept but has no satisfactory way of explaining how these things keep happening to Alex and then, in the final few minutes, explains it away in an incredibly cheap way. Whilst the film makers are still successfully spinning all the plates it is an engaging film, just make sure you turn it off before the end ruins it all.

After reading this I had to see it, man you weren't lying when you said it made X3 look competent. Up until the bit when Wolverine leaves the team at the start I thought it was OK, I liked

seeing them fighting through the different wars

at the start, but the rest was shoddy.

Also, the 'use' of Deadpool was criminal.

There's actually stuff in Wolverine I like, which makes its woefulness even more heartbreaking.

Anyway, just watched Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0432283/

Hated it. The whole look of the movie rubbed me the wrong way, the puppets and the production design. It just looks cheap and nasty and the vocal talent magnified, rather than detracted from this.

Network

Vicious, vicious satire on network television directed by Sidney Lumet in a detached, observational style, featuring a wonderful performance by Peter Finch as a news presenter who goes a bit mental and threatens to kill himself on the air. Of course, the resulting massive audience figures for the next night's broadcast plants a seed in the mind of ballbreaking network producer Faye Dunaway (can't remember her character name) and things just escalate from there. And I mean really escalate. It's a very unflattering portrayal of television execs, but it seems markedly relevant today, perhaps even more so than when it was first made considering the kind of nutcases that are splashed across our TV screens in reality gameshows.

You shouldn't know too much about this film before you see it, but it really is one of the most astonishingly black comedies I've ever seen, with a knockout ending that simultaneously creeps up on you and kicks you in the balls/female vagina. It also features a magnificent little cameo from Ned Beatty.

*****

Sidney Lumet is a director that I haven't really payed much attention to until recently. I saw 'The Verdict' a little while back and that also blew me away, in a cool observational way, naturally. What other Lumet films are worth checking out?

EDIT: Oh shit, 12 Angry Men, of course!

I saw network for the first time last year and it totally blew my mind. Some other Sydney Lumets I enjoyed are The Hill ( I think this is Sean Connerys best film), Serpico (great work from Al Pacino before and a real grimy 70's Ne York vibe and <a href="http://"http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072890/"" target="_blank">Dog Day Afternoon (more great work from Pacino).</a>

I watched the Blu-Ray of this today also and enjoyed it as much as I did at the cinema. The production design and animation are fantastic and it harks back to the films from the likes of Wladyslaw Starewicz in the 30s.

What other Lumet films are worth checking out?

Oh man you are in for a treat. All of the following are excellent but there are very few duff films in his filmography.

12 Angry Men

The Fugitive Kind

The Hill

The Pawnbroker

Dog Day Afternoon

Serpico

Fail-Safe

The Queen of Spades - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0041776/

An elderly countess strikes a bargain with the devil and exchanges her soul for the ability to always win at cards. An army officer, who is also a fanatic about cards, murders her for the secret, then finds himself haunted by the woman's spirit.

Radio 4's Back Row raved about this film several months ago but whilst it certainly has it's moments it is far too slow and uneventful for a modern audience. Once the haunting takes place the film comes alive and it has a great gothic atmosphere but it takes a laborious hour to get to there by which point no level of trickery can really pull you back. Shame.

**(* for the finale).

The Hill is a fucking GREAT film, first film I saw when I was younger that made me think 'Hey, maybe Black and White movies aren't so bad after all'. For a film set in the desert, you can amlost feel the sweat dripping off the camera, it's so overwhelmingly overbaring.

The Hill - is that the one where they are made to run up and down 'The Hill' with Sean Connery(?) maybe in it or Edward Woodward. Gonna have to look it up now. Man I saw that when I was younger and it blew me away. Maybe helped shape my anti establishment views as well.

Anyway I came into this thread to remind people of the following films based on the fact I watched a Reagge documentary last night and just got me reminiscing.

Rockers (1978) - If only for the line 'This is a takeover' A slice of life in 1970s Jamacia and worth a watch irrelevant as to whether you are into reggae or not

The Harder they come (1972) - sure alot more will know this film rather than 'rockers'. A Jimmy Cliff classic. Again a slice of life in the Windies but fantastic music, old school plot and a good way to sepnd some time in front of the old gogglebox.

EXIT: Apologies but I thought to add another film I was thinking about. I will leave this thread alone for abit after this edit as I appreciate I am not good with the descriptions.

Jump Tomorrow: An enjoyable life comedy about A Nigerian man journey to his arranged marriage. It is not a comedy about 'arranged' marriages or stereo typical ethnic differences but a short slice of someone's life. The main actor is very good. I haven't seen it for years but it has stayed with me for a long time which I percieve as a positive thing.

Just seen Up in the Air.

What an amazing accomplishment. Loved every second of it and bumped 500 Days of Summer off the #1 spot on my top 2010 list. I can go on and on about how good it is but I'm sure you've heard it all before. Highly recommended if you have not seen this already.

I'm glad I'm one of those people who keeps watching throughout the credits. This film even delivers in that department.

Rating: 10 cats out of 4 watermelons.
