    Have you seen Reservoir Dogs yet then?
    Oh yeah, it's my favourite film. :p:

    The box set was Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown and both Kill Bills. Best tenner I've ever spent.

    Good price, but if I was buying it now I'd expect them to include Inglourious as well. :p:

    I probably should look at buying some Blu Rays at some point, but they seem so expensive, I don't really want to buy my entire DVD library again and considering there's like 100 HD sky channels now and a boatload of HD movies on anytime there seems very little point. I think the only ones I own are District 9 and Hurt Locker.

    Yeah i wanted Inglourious but it's usually available on skyplayer if i want it

    I still haven't invested in a Blu Ray player yet, unfortunately next years rent payment has to come first.

    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...).
    I'm beginning to think he doesn't have the ability to at all, that Sixth Sense was just some divine luck.

    Back from my hitch-hike to Marrakech!
    Welcome back! How was it?

    Game of Thrones has premièred on HBO and Sky Atlantic. :gah:

    (Original post by Deshi)
    One of the most scariest 12 rated movie around imo :ninja: The end was lame though.
    Swing away!

    Thought it would have been more effective if they hadn't actually shown the alien or said that water was the weakness. It is such a weak move to hype up these aliens invading, not seeing them (playing on the fear of the unknown and unseen) and then showing some tall alien getting battered to death by water and a baseball bat.

    They didn't have to show it at all. It would have worked equally well had they worked in some other ending not involving a visual depiction or a retarded weakness for these aliens that have traversed the galaxy and not known that water was their weakness.

    It's like ... uploading a virus to the alien mothership from an old computer. Not bring any anti-virus software, aliens?

    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:

    I intend to watch it tomorrow morning. I watched The Reckoning tonight, the premise is nothing new and I spotted the plot coming a mile away but it was enjoyable enough. Plus anything with Ashley Jensen in = sold.

    That sounds very cool.

    Cheers dudes, it was utterly amazing. I'd post a few pictures and whatnot, but haven't got round to uploading them to my laptop yet. And we all know posting pictures of yourself on the internet can only lead to disaster...

    Trying to find the first episode now!

    Game Of Thrones: don't believe the gripes

    Don't listen to the naysayers – George RR Martin's Game Of Thrones gets better and better with each episode


    Also been watching Dekalog, and this is what Kubrick had to say:

    I am always reluctant to single out some particular feature of the work of a major filmmaker because it tends inevitably to simplify and reduce the work. But in this book of screenplays by Krzysztof Kieslowski and his co-author, Krzysztof Piesiewicz, it should not be out of place to observe that they have the very rare ability to dramatize their ideas rather than just talking about them. By making their points through the dramatic action of the story they gain the added power of allowing the audience to discover what's really going on rather than being told. They do this with such dazzling skill, you never see the ideas coming and don't realize until much later how profoundly they have reached your heart.
    I've been trying to find "Hombre mirando al sudeste" (Man Facing Southeast) - no luck so far.

    Glad to hear it! Was thinking of trying to convince you to watch it.

    It's good. R-rated, big budget, fine selection of actors and a quality story. What could go wrong? And if you like the premise, then you should consider reading the series after Dark Tower. Many people mistake it for high fantasy in the same sense as Lord of the Rings, it's not. Even though it is set in a fantasy world with fantasy elements, they are all in the background. In the front is the complex political intrigue with several characters who have their own motivations, flaws and quite complex personalities. There is no 'good' or 'evil' - just shades of grey - which is part of what it makes it so good. And in that sense, it's far more superior to the characterisation and the cast types in something like Lord of the Rings. Think someone coined it as Lord of the Rings meets the Sopranos.

    It has a lot of brutality, drama and there are real shocks everywhere (you'll learn that by the end of the first episode).

    Ah well, good to hear you had a good time. Had to Google the place. :ninja:

    It's good. :teeth:

    Acting is top notch in some respects, most of the actors fit what I had in mind for the characters and the atmosphere as well as the quality of the drama is of a high calibre. There are of course omissions, changes and unnecessary scenes added in. And, doesn't live up entirely to the books but I'm happy with what is there. I want a wolf cub too. :puppyeyes:

    Would be interested in hearing your thoughts after you've watched it.

    I really enjoyed it, even if the separate elements all seem really disparate at the minute. Acting is really good, and the direction is absolutely spot on, the guy really knows how to frame shots.
