    Sidney Lumet. :rip:

    Dog Day Afternoon. :sogood:

    (Original post by mimimimi)
    Just started to watch Red Road after seeing it mentioned earlier in this thread. 5 minutes in and I've just realised I've seen it before, in the cinema. I really should keep a book with a list of all the films I've seen, because I watch so many (and have such a bad memory) that it's hard to keep track of them! Going to carry on watching it anyway, because I don't remember the plot exactly but remember enjoying it.
    Yeah, that was me. I really loved that film. :yep:

    Anyone know anything of Terence Malick's work? He's greatly respected, but to my shame I haven't seen any of his films.
    Ditto. I'll be picking up Thin Red Line the next time I'm out movie-shopping. Also looking forward to The Tree of Life.

    Btw anyone else here seen The book of Eli, also anyone seen The Road? Saw the Book of Eli a few days ago.. pretty solid, Denzel's great in lead roles still, it's one of those films that you can look back on completely differently if one thing is pointed out to you - quite weird but interesting, their may or may not be some huge intentional twist in it

    Book of Eli - enjoyable and solid action film. And I understand what you mean, I watched for a second time a few months back, picking up things I didn't notice before. The Road - not so much. Didn't do the book justice (naturally very few films do), but it just didn't have anything special. I felt it could have been done better. Viggo was great though.

    Both films make you want to play Fallout 3/New Vegas, in the same way True Grit makes you want to play Red Dead Redemption.

    The Road was so depressing. The action-y sequences seemed to drawn out and the flashbacks seemed out of place. The Book of Eli was good just so sit down and switch off too but the ending was really disappointing...

    Yeah, if I was in a post-nuclear apocalypse wasteland, I'd want to skip through the field of crops razed to the ground.

    Both games hold a S.P.E.C.I.A.L. place in my heart.

    There must be a lot of perks to such an accommodating worldview. I can't help but think of the previous entry as a bloody mess by comparison.

    That said, apparently the MOON & SOURCE CODE director feels like he would rather do his own original sci fi script next, but is taking the meeting more or less to explore options and be polite.
    Would rather him do his own original thing than Wolverine, to be honest.

    First video game love for the post-apocalyptic world and music and all that jazz. A lot of people share your view, but I think they're both great games in their own right. And, of course, Tranquillity Lane.

    Will post later

    Those threads only annoy me when it's a relatively new user who say's like 2 lines before linking to a youtube video instead of embedding it directly.

    Did you feel as though they nicked the plot from The Terminator? y'know, protecting a woman to save the future...
