    It was absolutely beautiful but it was an awful film. The plot was pretty much nigh on nonexistant

    Brad Pitt's an acting legend tbf, although really peaked i think at the turn of the century e.g. fight club and snatch
    Did you see Babel?! I need you to see this if you haven't I will even link you to the film WITH subtitles g!

    So good just rewatched it after 10 yrs looking for it

    http://www.subsmovies.com/watch?movie=0449467 watch

    If you dont understand it and see it, basically it's interlinked storylines that connect in the end:

    4 countries, 4 stories that end in tragedy :\

    But not in vain it's good.

    Pitt and Blanchett are husband and wife. And they go to Morocco for holiday after a fight cuz he cheated on her. Well they leave their kids wth their Mexican nanny in US. She needs to go to Mexico for her only son's wedding. But she has no US visa, she is illegal. Something bad happens to her in Mexico, can she come back to US...do the kids make it back to US...? You'll see

    She would've been able to go just fine but Pitt is stuck in Morocco because Blanchett was hurt, won't say how. So she crosses the border...So now the international police need to track down the owner of the gn to see if it's a terrorist militia...The owner is a good dude in Japan, and his troubled deaf daughter is examined throughout the film because the owner ignores her :\ Well their stories all revolve around guns and how if there was no gun in the 1st place this wouldn't have happened to any of them...

    :rolleyes: did they only sit throuh the 1st 30 minutes...lol they had to really show how bad he was, how bad everyone around him was, to see his redemption and reform later. That made it powerful. The time it was made too was necessary. US in the early 90s was a mess...

    Alright alright brace yourself but i haven't seen it... BUT i've meant to for while. It's by Alejandrogonzalo... director of Birdman and Revenant so i take you're promise that it's worth it as the absolute truth. Plus if there's a guy who loves that non-linear multi coverging narrative **** it's me.. Magnolia and Pulp Fiction ripped my face off of my face. Thanks for you're recommendation man ill give it a look tomorrow

    the swedish one was all right, why'd you not like it? I think there's an american version but I dont like the girl.

    Lmao Amelie was just...it can't be considered a classic JUST because it had that colouring :dry: the film was dead and unfunny. Actually what was it about again? lol A weird...woman..virgin? ...falls for this...dude..while...trying to do...something?? lmao
    I found it very boring, although I did like the story, I didn't like the way it was told.

    lol, I fell asleep twice watching amelie, I remember it being about a sheltered girl who finds this weird guy who collects pictures or something along those lines.

    Anything about US and catching terrorists. They are **** boring and lies.

    Anything about being black. Like The Help. Precious. Just so :ahhhhh:

    Anything about space like Interstellar, Gravity (they are literally the same: dude and chick floating around. Actually I didn't see either, maybe they're diff but I am 100% not interested blegh)

    Anything with Leonardo Da Vinci Cappucino in it



    On the flip side why has no one from Harry Potter got awards for starring in that :'(
    Interstellar = GOAT film

    I tried really hard to get through Amelie. I even searched on sky cable to see if it was gonna come on again just so I can finally watch it withut turning it off. I ended up watching porn.

    Cambridge dictionary definition:
    a period of ten years, especially a period such as 2010 to 2019

    To help with that

    Period:

    a length of time

    First part is important as it shows that it doesn't refer to specific years but that it just means a measure of time.
    Don't bother.

    Lol I just love it man

    Oh is that so...? Didn't know that, sometimes that director is hit and miss. I'm not sure if he did this film Biutiful with Javier Bardem but..it was bad...too much not enough...a story about Asians, African and white interlink again in Biutiful...and it seems like it was the Alejandro dude and he wanted to top himself with Babel and couldn't or...a horrible copycat..I will google to see if he did direct Biutiful...and if he did well...yea lol thought so. Oh man Tarantino one of the greatest directors man. Haven't seen Pulp Fiction like a div but apparently it's a classic. Resevoir Dogs, Jackie Brown, he also did those I think and yea it's very back and forth which is nice.
