    ^ On that topic, I've seen most of 'The Birds', quite good

    I haven't seen the original Pyscho though.. I heard there's a remake floating about, I also hear it's pretty bad
    There's a Psycho remake starring Julianne Moore, I like it in a sort of guilty pleasure way.

    Been on a Hitchcock binge. Rope is incredible. :coma:
    Rope is probably my favourite Hitchcock film. Films set in one place appeal to me, as do films starring James Stewart. It's perfect for me!



    I went to see Submarine today. It was great, although I could definitely see too many of my own traits in Oliver. I've been listening to the soundtrack all week, and it fitted the film wonderfully. It's worth going to see.

    Oooh new thread. Erm, watched Knight and Day a few days ago, it was alright, wasn't expecting much tbh. One of my friends I was watching it with told me Cameron Diaz had plastic surgery on her nose and as a result I couldn't stop staring throughout the whole film at her nose as I thought it looked weird

    It's up there for me. I'm a bit late, but I am really getting into his work.

    James Stewart was a great actor. I do wonder if he ever played a bad guy though. If so, it was probably creepy, hilarious, or some combination thereof. :holmes:

    Just watched Battle Los Angeles. It was pretty good. What I couldn't help feeling, throughout the film, was "This would make a great video game." It feels like a cross between Crysis and Modern Warfare. I mean, there's even a bit where they have to hold a position against enemy forces for three minutes.

    I'm thinking of watching Sweet Sixteen in a bit; has anybody seen it?

    My alternatives are Capote and Wall Street.

    Capote is good but it is a biopic of the man with the most annoying voice in the history of forever, so be prepared for that. Haven't seen Wall Street.

    I've seen Sweet Sixteen a few times. If your in the mood for a kind of nitty gritty social realist film then go for it. I'd also recommend watching it with subtitles cause some of the actors have really thick Scottish accents.

    on a completely random note, I wonder why Frodo and his ragtag fellowship just fly on the giant eagles straight to Mount doom and drop the ring in the volcano like that, cut out the Two Towers and ROTK
    Many reasons. Not least of which is that giving some of the most powerful beings in the world an incredibly corruptible item is not a good idea.

    Second thread! Drinks on me!

    What you guys having? :beard:
    Dry Martini; three measures of Gordon's, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it over ice, and add a thin slice of lemon peel.

    I am nowhere near as analytic (or indeed proficient) as AIG or our resident mod but I do enjoy films!

    I have absolutely nothing to contribute though. No cash to go see any of the current films!

    Half the fun is in the anticipation of the future or the reliving of the past. :p:

    I caught a few minutes of Moulin Rouge on Friday. I've always shied away from it because I thought it was going to be a "serious" musical, which I generally hate. But it looked so insane that I think I might give it a try this afternoon.

    I ended up watching Wall Street, but I'll probably watch Sweet Sixteen sometime this week, thanks. And I almost never watch an English language movie with the subtitles on, kind of a habit. I made it through The Wind that Shakes the Barley okay. :dontknow:

    On Wall Street, I thought it was interesting, but not enthralling. Charlie Sheen was quite good, Martin Sheen was better. Michael Douglas was really good, but not a huge amount better than what I remember of his other performances (The Game, Traffic). Daryl Hannah wasn't very good, but I didn't think she was as downright terrible as some people say. So yeah, not bad, not extraordinary.

    Speaking of musicals, what do you think of Burton's Sweeney Todd?

    I really enjoyed it. I'm a big fan of Depp and HBC, and Burton made the film look amazing. It's one of my favourite musicals, but nothing comes close to The Producers for me.

    Looked good, lacked heart, fun and ambition.

    You'll be able to follow the story without subs, but Glaswegian accents are somewhat notoriously hard to understand.
