    Then pop up with 90 mins to spare.
    Serkis manages a competent performance as Dury. The film concentrates mostly on Dury and his relationships, with his (soon to be) ex-wife and (current) Girlfriend, but mostly his son, and his father, the rise to fame being charted in the backround. The past, his influences, and Dury's troubled psyche are introduced via flashbacks, and mirrored in his sons behavioural decline. Overall, not bad, but a bit disorganised.

    Stieg Larsson`s Men, who hate women.

    Tremendous movie, an absolutely stunning Noomi Rapace. Great. Almost as good as the book.

    :mrgreen:

    Love the books to bits and like the movies. Saw the first two parts. The third part is due to release this summer.

    Highly recommendable.

    The books and the movies.


    Watched the third part at the cinema tonight. Was really brilliant, too.

    I simply love Swedish criminal novels and movies.

    The movie theater was completely empty, because everybody was watching footie.

    ...which was indeed an adequate alternative to any movie.

  • The Human Centipede(First Sequence)

    As soon as I read about viewers hurling chunks, and the Director getting Death threats, I knew I would be watching this, soon. And so it was.
    Premise is standard Horror film cliche, two teens, far from home, car breaks down, they find a house, at the side of a wood, inhabited by a creepy looking Doctor. The Doctor in this case, is perfectly played by Dieter Laser, previously known to me as Mantrid, in Lexx, this time looking like he wandered off the set of an early Kraftwerk video. Dr Heiter, who previously separated Siamese Twins, is mourning the loss of his reverse engineered '3-hound', and wants a new pet. This is horror in terms of the psychological impact, slow, but not in any way gory, after all, whats a little surgery between friends ? Not very fast paced, not a lot of action, apart from the abortive escape attempts. I think the most depraved parts are the obvious gastric connection, between Heiters 'patients', and possibly the scene, where Heiter is explaining to his 'patients' what he is about to do. This was my second viewing, the sequel is being made as I type, this time the Full Sequence will have 12 segments, I wait with twisted anticipation and morbid curiosity.

  • Took the family to see Toy Story 3D at the weekend, and it was sensational :D :D

    Much bebate in the British press when this came out, about "grown men" crying in films - well I do in many films and this was no exception

    I thoroughly recommend this, even if it's just for (Barbie and) Ken 8) :lol: :lol:

  • Machete

    Beheadings, bullets, blood and babes on the Texas/Mexico border.
    Machete is a former cop, hired to shoot Robert De Nero, in an attempt to gain De Nero's character the vote for Senate, and then totally stitched up. Our man then goes out for revenge, his name telling you what his weapon of choice is. Expanded from a fake Trailer in the Grindhouse films of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino, Starring Danny Trejo (you may not know the name, but there is no mistaking that face) and also featuring Steven Seagal, Cheech Marin, Jessica Alba an unrecognisible Don johnson, and a mostly nude Lindsay Lohan. This is possibly the ultimate 'bloke' movie, and a perfect antidote, if like me, you were forced to watch Sex and The City2 (over 140 minutes, and I still couldn't work out if Sarah Jessica Parker's face was the right way round)
    I did think that last years banned Grotesque had probably the best disembowelling scene ever, then I saw Machete go on better, utilising a freshly drawn intestine to abseil down to another window.
    This is my kind of Movie. :D :D

    I've been waiting for this for a long time. The only movie ever to appear out of a fake trailer.
