    I watched Contact for the first time the other day, anyone else seen it?

    I really enjoyed it up until the moment when Jodie Foster went in to space (or didn't, or whatever ). Films like that, that build up to such an important moment, rarely succeed in satisfying. Overal I liked it though.

    Yes. I really love it. It's cheesy in parts, I know. But I am a huge Jodie fan and as a science geek I just love the notion of detecting an alien intelligence.

    In fact, I may have to watch it tonight, now you've reminded me

    Watched Smashed today, it was pretty good. :yep: I liked it more than Flight (both being centred around alcoholism) tbh. Really good performance by Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and some nifty directing.

    ahahahaha any film with jesse pinkman in it is a must watch.

    Oh fair enough, yeah I'd agree. If you ever get a chance watch The Man From Nowhere, one of the only Korean films I own on DVD, so good.



    :yy: I watched that the other day as well, really enjoyed it. Bleak as hell though.
    Oh yeah, Korean films are pretty damn good, but seem to be very bloody :laugh: I saw The Good, The Bad and the Weird as well. I think it's meant to be a rip off of the american one :laugh:

    Well, he's also said that he's a big fan of the Twilight franchise. :o: I've never quite gotten what sort of a critic he's supposed to be - he seems neither mainstream/populist nor artsy/indie; just hipster, basically. :p: Not that I've read a lot by him, so my opinion isn't especially informed.
    What on friggin earth... he's not attempting to be anything like that. The guy has been reviewing for over 20 years and just knows the difference between films which are a waste of time, no story to tell, have nothing too say about the world or life etc. from the films that do.

    Anyone ever seen Let Him Have It? I've seen Christopher Eccleston in a few things but he never really registered on my radar, until now. I believe this film was his first film role and he is all but flawless as Derek Bentley and Paul Reynolds also puts in a really good performance as Christopher Craig. It appears to be a beautifully photographed snapshot of 1950s Britain.

    Yes. Seen it many times. Brilliant film and a powerful argument against the death penalty (as indeed the Bentley case was in reality).

    What did ppl think of The Master?

    I watched it the other night. Two superb central performances (especially from Joaquin Phoenix), but somehow it was less than the sum of its parts. Also, quite baggy. Could have done with an edit. Good, certainly, but not amazing IMHO
    A mind numbingly dull movie that couldn't be saved by Phoenix's good performance. Paul Thomas Anderson is a hit and miss director. The Master lacked the exuberance of Punch Drunk Love and Boogie Nights, the latter being his best work.

    I'm inclined to agree. I thought Boogie Nights and There Will be Blood were great. Haven't seen Punch Drunk Love.
