    Hello all, just back from inter-railing (last week actually). Have only seen the Planet Of The Apes film which was pretty damn good. Any recommendations for films? Quite fancy checking out The Guard.

    Also, I'm amazed that everyone seems to be interested in Melancholia.
    I thought it looked intriguing when I first saw the trailer; I was interested in it some time before Cannes. Do you not think it looks very good? Most critics so far seem to have liked it, and Dunst won the Prix d'interprétation féminine for it. :dontknow:

    Friends with Benefits is so good! I recommend it to everybody. Mila Kunis’ character is so cute and the chemistry between her and Justin Timberlake is surprisingly convincing.

    Speaking of Timberlake, what are your thoughts on his next venture - 'In Time'?



    I think he will be good enough but with Niccol directing that should just about guarantee it to be one of the best films of 2011!

    *Off topic: I seem to have forgotten how to post youtube videos...help? :confused:

    (((Thanks Jace Falco!)))

    It's the best Western that has ever been made.
    God, London has an acute deficiency of western film lovers. Atleast, of the kind that would like to indulge in their passion by going to a theatre by the river.

    **** me, watched The Hitcher remake today and it was ****ing awful. I have never watched the original but if it's anything like that I don't think I'd want to :nothing: The female lead was retarded, reminded me of Wolf Creek, another film that could have so easily ended after 30 minutes if the leads had any brains. Only good thing about it was Sean Bean.

    I also caught Thor a few days ago, wasn't as good as I had hoped tbh, X-Men: First Class was a lot better I thought. I also was looking at Natalie Portman's page and she has no new films coming out or anything, is she taking a break from acting or something?

    The concept is pretty good but the trailer doesn't do anything for me. It seems like a bad fan made film. Don't get me started on his acting. He was decent in The Social Network but he's not good enough to carry or be a lead actor. Maybe I'm being a bit harsh by basing all thoughts on a trailer...

    Inter-railing. :moon:

    Super 8 and Cowboys and Aliens are both out, which I think you were looking forward to.

    Reviews have been tearing it to shreds.

    Four Lions was genius, I loved that aside from all the main jokes, there was culture I could relate to as a Pakistani.

    The squat-runs bit is just inspired :P

    Four Lions is actually exactly what is needed with regard to 'British' terrorism.

    Yet again Chris Morris does a fabulous job of exploring the stupidity of some people and by getting young people tempted by this kind of lifestyle laughing at it, we are subconsciously putting them off.

    Why victimise arbitrarily when we can just laugh our asses off at them?

    Rubber dingy rapids brother!

    Does anybody know where I can get cheap world cinema DVDs? It's frustrating how expensive they are on Amazon, if anyone could recommend me a site to get Bande A Part from I'd be extremely grateful! (not eBay!)
    I tend to buy from MovieMail, though that can be quite expensive. I usually just buy stuff when they are on offer and they tend to have a fair few offers going, therefore they end up taking stupid amounts of money off me. However, having done a quick search on there Bande A Part is £15.99.

    Been seeing a swathe of 2011 films recently, like Thor, which I loved apart from lack of backstory and some character development - more or less the same with X men first class which is pretty awesome

    btw there are some set pictures from the Avengers film online, looking pretty good

    Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and Shame are both getting highly positive reactions in Venice. I'm particularly excited about the latter; Steve McQueen is one of my favourite up-and-coming directors, along with Andrea Arnold. If Shame is anywhere as good as Hunger... :coma:
