    As a comedian I think he's dreadful but I didn't actually mind him in Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
    I've only ever seen about ten minutes of his comedy where he dissected some newspaper stories and I found that pretty funny, but I wasn't inspired to go and search out more from him. He at least tried to be doing something reasonably clever, which put him streets ahead of Peter Catchphrase Kay.

    In an unrelated note, I read your PM and the ideas were awesome. I'll hopefully remember to reply to it tomorrow!

    I watched Moon earlier. Duncan Jones, along with Charles Ferguson, has to be one of the most talented rising directors around. And it pisses me off a little bit that every article, review, or even comment about him or his work includes the line "David Bowie's son...".

    Also, even just Kevin Spacey's disembodied voice can give a more impressive performance than most characters are capable of. Ever since Sam Mendes signed on to Bond 24 it's kept alive the little hope I have that maybe one day he will play a Bond villain.

    Is The Village worth watching if you already know all the plot twists?

    Suppose so, yeah. It's worth a watch, even if you want to just compare all of Shyamalans films in sequence

    :rofl:

    Sorry but plot twists in Shyamalan films make me laugh.

    Talking of Shymalan, anybody hear of that fundraiser to send him back to film school?

    The whole cutting off the heads ritual as the offering to the sun gods, that was very well done. Intense scene. And it's a very good story in general, even if it does follow the typical formula, you really were on the guy's side - willing him to live.

    That sucks. Amazon have brilliant customer support. Brilliant. So try and get in touch with them if blowing on it or cleaning it with a cloth don't work.

    Three words will flash in your mind in nearly every plot twist. "...the whole time..." But in his movies, the :shock: with each progressive film slowly evolves to

    Sixth Sense - dead ... the whole time :shock:
    Unbreakable - Mr Glass, bad guy ... the whole time :shock:
    Signs - a planet where most of the surface is covered in water, it was the weakness ... the whole time :shifty:
    The Village - living in a fake world, away from reality, Elders were monsters ... the whole time

    And so on.


    Sixth Sense was such a brilliant film. Unbreakable, liked the premise. And Signs, I loved the atmosphere - ruined at the end.

    Sixth Sense is definitely my favourite by M. Night Shyamalan. Brilliant film! But then everything went down hill... Unbreakable was average, Signs was okay, The Village was pretty entertaining. I'm hoping he breaks the trend sometime soon and makes another one on par with Sixth Sense. He's definitely got the technical ability to do it... he just needs another interesting story (though, I say that like it's easy...).

    Yeah I've tried pretty much everything, I'm tempted to just buy it again as its so much hassle sending it back to them and everything I'll just buy it from HMV instead though.

    One of the most scariest 12 rated movie around imo :ninja: The end was lame though.

    I bought a Tarantino boxset years ago from Asda online. When it arrived someone had opened it and taken out the Reservoir Dogs disc, which was bloody annoying.

    I bought Rain Man a couple of months ago, but when I sat down to watch it, I opened the case and found Pulp Fiction inside instead. So I took it back to the shop, and they gave me another Rain Man... case. Guess what was inside.

    Lol I just assumed Cowboys vs Aliens would be awful, then I watched 2 of the new trailers and my mind has changed, it looks ok Daniel Craig being in it still seems a bit weird to me but it can work

    Few days till Fast Five is out :cool:

    Unlucky. Have you seen Reservoir Dogs yet then? I watched it a few weeks ago, thought it was pretty awesome.


    And I just got the Harry Potter disc cleaned for a quid in town and it now works fine
