as opposed to this,
so if you were involved in 10,000 BC, go feed yourself to a cheaply CG-ed ‘spear-tooth’.
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.
Piss off Shia Lebouf, piss off Spielberg and your fucking martian obsession and fuck off action sequences that defy the suspension of disbelief, IJATKOTCS is barely worthy of the time I just spent typing its wretched acronym.
Never have I seen such valuable source material abused for the sake of a dollar – The Golden Compass is as clunky as fuck despite the best efforts of Sam Elliot and a CG polar bear, previously a star of coke xmas propaganda, to save it’s sorry, should-be-ashamed-of-itself, ass.
Too be honest, I watched Me, You and Everyone We Know a while ago and can’t really remember that much about it, suggesting it was neither peachy or piss, just what is… lo-fi indie pleasantness.
I was prepped not to be impressed, and yet still was, meaning that Cloverfield is quite the monster/post 911 movie.
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.
Cute, Year of the Dog is cute, something achieved efficiently in juxtaposition to the film’s core sentiment that humans aren’t worth loving.
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.
