    Do any of you guys run your own blogs/write for any websites or blogs and review films? I'd like to write for a blog or a website to help create a portfolio for myself or do you guys reckon I should just start writing on my own one?

    Seems a long time since I've been on here. Hope everyone who was breathing the last time I was in is still doing so, and with as little difficulty as possible.

    I've just realised I've been registered on here for five years now. That's depressing.

    Film wise: I saw Avengers Assemble last week (late to the party) and it was actually pretty enjoyable. I was surprised.

    It's rather jolly good fun isn't it? :^_^: Some of the hyperbole around it is rediculous and I still find 'then aliens' to be slightly bizzare but the character interactions are wonderful. Mark Ruffalo should just go and be in everything :daydreaming:

    Why are you hyphenating the part about aliens? Is "then aliens" some kind of Avengers-based meme I've missed, relating to the fact they see to come out of nowhere? Or are you just quoting yourself referring to the aliens?

    'And then x' or 'Suddenly: x' is a sort of meme I hear around although it's fairly uncommon. It's just used to say an event occured that came out of nowhere are was rather giggle inducing in it's weirdness :3

    Just saw the trailer for another YA adaptation (Divergent). They seem to be struggling a lot recently (Percy Jackson, Mortal Instruments, Beautiful Creatures, The Host etc etc), surprised they keep making more. They always pick the crap one's to adapt as well.

    The last Percy Jackson film wasn't actually all that bad, Anthony Head was rather wonderful Didn't mind Beautiful Creatures either, Emma Thompson just makes everything.

    I haven't seen any of them, I was just referring to box office numbers!

    Did Percy Jackson actually do that bad though? I thought it was scrapping by okay, but then again I don't pay that much attention to box office :rolleyes: If my brainverse Wim Wenders is always number one :awesome:


    But yeah, Beautiful Creatures is as good as dead Shame really, it's an awful lot better than the romance in Twilight.

    Just came back from seeing The Kings of Summer. Wow guys, it only has a week-long run here in the UK but it was fantastic! Cinematically beautiful and one of the best coming-of-age films I've seen.

    Good stuff. It's on my list. It's been compared favourably to Stand By Me

    I have just seen Call Girl - a dark, noirish Swedish political thriller. Drab 1970s colour palette and superb period details (the hair, the clothes, the cars...). A pretty heartbreaking central performance from Sofia Karemyr as a teenage prostitute and it leaves you feeling pretty outraged by the injustice of what is basically a true story. Very good indeed.

    I completely agree. When people think of the greatest action/cop films they say things like Die Hard and Terminator but what about Heat? That street bust up and the perfect bank robbery. Mann is certainly the most underrated director. He makes things like Manhunter, Last of the Mohicans and The Insider. One of the best directors of all time but yet barely no mention.

    So with Kermode liking the One Direction film, anyone here actually interested in watching it (it is directed by Morgan Spurlock after all)? I was intrigued by that Channel4 documentary about the fans of said boy band. But I'm scared that if I go by myself (I doubt I will find anyone willing to go with me) it'll be full of teenage girls and might feel a bit out of place.

    Hm is it underrated though? Everyone who speaks of it speaks very highly. I mean Die Hard is just so known because it got put into a series

    I'm bitterly disappointed that you didn't mention Collateral, one of my favourites films ever, Tom Cruise is a badass mofo in it.
