#68 – 10,000 BC

Action

10,000 BC is crap and not One Million Years BC and therefore has this,

as opposed to this,

so if you were involved in 10,000 BC, go feed yourself to a cheaply CG-ed ‘spear-tooth’.

#67 – Iron Man

Action

Finally, a super hero film that gets what it is meant to do – Iron Man is a success due entirely to an MO created by Favreau and Downey JR to relax the seriousness and lighten the mood, lets hear it also for 2nd and 3rd in the billing, Gwyn’s left and right legs, both are distinctly more interesting and talented than Terence Howard and Bridges’ bald head or hairy chin.

#62 – Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Musical

Refreshingly gruesome, Burton’s Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is so Burton that you don’t actually need to watch it, though with the cut throat razors being possibly the most desirable movie prop I’ve seen all year and the neck slicing of a Cronenberg magnitude it will hold your attention – plus I used to eat at a restaurant called Sweeney Todd’s when I was a kid, it was the best fucking place in the world.

#60 – Wild Tigers I Have Known

Drama

Wild Tigers I Have Known is artistic and lyrical and fancy fucking Dan, but nevertheless avoids pretension (mostly) and transmits a sensation as much as it gets across the story – a highlight is a clueless kid making a list of things to do that will make him appear cool, included is ‘subscribe to Vice magazine’, I almost fucking guffawed.
