    I just finished watching Inspector Maigret. Great detective/thriller film. As always, Jean Gabin didn't disappoint. 8.5/10

    Next up... Rohmer's Love in the Afternoon.

    Been on a bit of a Greengrass binge recently:

    United 93 on Tuesday. I thought it was absolutely fantastic. Quite shaken at the end.

    The Bourne Supremacy yesterday. I liked it; particularly the stylistics of it. There was the long chase scene towards the end which bored me a little, but that might be because I'm just not very used to watching action films. Really liked the rest of it, thought the story was good (although I did think a bit of realism was sacrificed to not-so-good effect in some parts in favour of 'coolness'.)

    The Bourne Ultimatum today. Pretty similar to the above, enjoyed it on the whole.

    He's really quite good, isn't he? Hopefully seeing Bloody Sunday soon as well.

    This answer has been endlessly used before, but it's probably $$$


    That said, I don't know anything about the specifics of the making/remaking, so I could be completely wrong and it could be someone genuinely trying to re-imagine a good film. :o: :getmecoat:

    Oh no, not Oldboy! Another great film getting an unnecessary remake. Sigh, not only is Oldboy getting a remake, but so is The Magnificent Seven!

    I watched the Royal Tenenbaums today. I didn't feel very emotionally engaged with the characters so I just looked at the pretty colours.

    Tbf The Magnificent Seven is a remake is it not?

    'Old Boy' should be interesting. Spike Lee, Josh Brolin, Sharlto Copley.
    I don't really want them to remake it but I am sort of following it with mild amusement, I wanna see how it all turns out.

    Sword and sandal epics are one of my favourite genres but that film is just horrible. They really need to make a decent film about Alexander the Great.

    It's an awful film. But if you'd prefer to watch a film of that type, opt for Gladiator, Troy and Kingdom of Heaven (Director's Cut).

    I'm watching Inglorious Basterds and......I gotta say, it's not my favorite Tarantino flick. But it's still good though.

    I absolutely adore Inglourious Basterds. Unashamedly massive Tarantino fan.

    I went to see Search for Sugar Man today, it was a pretty good documentary. Really worth seeing if you like your music, plus the story itself is quite crazy!

    Going to watch Austin Powers 1 tomorrow.

    I have one simple request, and that is to have SHARKS WITH FRICKIN' LASER BEAMS ATTACHED TO THEIR HEADS.

    I'd prefer one on Philip to be honest. :moon:



    Going to watch the hollywood War of the Worlds in the next fw days after recording it off of BBC3. Not seen it but will give it a fair go. Currently reading the story and I know already they've changed parts of that.
