    Blood, guns and vengeance. The essentials for a good Western.

    I love the genre, and I am so very much looking forward to Tarantino's take.

    Oh yes please. :coma:

    I think this sounds absolutely fantastic, the story seems perfect for QT. I was interested in his ideas for the continuation of Kill Bill, but this sounds a lot more exciting. A revenge flick taking pot shots at American history? Brilliant.
    You can already imagine the 20 minute discussion over the purchase of a horse. Or a 15 minute tense poker game. Can't wait. :awesome:

    Probably involving a poor cowboy getting his balls shot off. Man, Quentin Tarantino and the Mexican stand-off is going to be so good. :sogood:

    Film of the week

    Sin Nombre
    If you liked City of God and/or Crash, you're likely to enjoy this

    As I believe I mentioned on this thread, I re-watched this film a few days back.

    It's an exquisite gang drama that's much more than this. It's got an underlying concept of love that works exactly as the concept should, rather than the mushy Hollywood perception of how this should be realised in a film. Much like Crash, it involves interweaving stories, as one person's life becomes inextricably linked with another's, through a well-developed and thought out journey.

    Part of the film's realism and impact is due to Cary Fukunaga's meticulous research; spending two years with the gangs and on the trains of Central America. The way he films is beautiful, perfectly capturing the colours and environment of the region, much as City of God did. Everything about the camera angles just seems right, and every scene entirely necessary.

    The ending avoids trying to follow the "twist-at-all-costs" routine and is all the better for it. Although it seems as if it could be happier it fits the tone of the film perfectly. This tone - the way the plot is conveyed, the chartacters, the vocabulary used - exudes precision due to its research and is all the better for it; genuinely creating a sense of realism. It certainly deserved its place at Sundance (in 2009).

    Watch.

    Transformers gets so much abuse, its definitely entertaining, even though its truly is crap at times. I'm generally a comic book fan, but I hate X-Men. It doesn't even stay in line with the Marvel universe. In general: "Oh look there's Spider Man WOOOOOHOOOOO :nutcase:" whereas In X-men:"Oh look there's a mutant, lets go kill it:diep:" :noway:

    The films in bold I literally cannot wait for, especially HP7 part 2 & Sherlock :coma: I wouldn't mind watching things like Immortals, or Cowboys & Aliens which should be really good. I can't even bring myself to watch Winnie or Johnny tbh The next year and half will be great for film, hopefully. :headbang: :dance:
    The attractive thing about X-Men is the focus is not just on one person, and it puts forward a variety of powers. HP 7 looks promising, even though there are some pretty weird deviations from the book. Looking forward to Cowboys and Aliens and Super 8 very much. They're both original films that look so good. :coma:

    No Winnie? What kind of childhood did you have? :shock:

    The only 'big' films that I'm aware of to be coming out this year that seem possibly worth going to see are: CONAN (so glad they changed the title from the ******ry that was 'CONAN 3D'), The Rum Diary, Pirates of the Caribbean, Tin Tin, The Three Musketeers (if, as I was under the impression, it's a more adult aimed take), The Ides of March and Cowboys and Aliens.

    Immortals has potential to be decent I guess. Ancient Greece is great, Mickey Rourke rules, John Hurt is good... I just have the feeling that it's gonna suck. The remake/sequel/whatever it is of The Thing is blatantly going to be a travesty. The bolded ones are all gonna be so bad. ;p Also, thinking about Conan, someone needs to release a ****ing uncut version of Conan the Destroyer.

    GODDAMNIT I ****ING HATE WHEN FILMS GET SCREWED OVER SIMPLY IN THE NAME OF GETTING A LOWER AGE RATING.
    Hard to form an impression on Conan when all they've released is a trailer with lots of smoke. Some of the bolded ones are good. Don't insult Sherlock Holmes. :pierre:

    I hate it when promising films get cancelled because the studios refuse to invest in a R-rated horror film because it's unlikely to make a lot. I'm looking at you Mountains of Madness. :dry:

    Tarantino's next movie has been revealed and confirmed by his agency:
    Thoughts?
    And it has Christopher Waltz. That's what I like about Tarantino. Like Nolan, he doesn't go after sequels (even though he does seem to have good ideas for them), and makes a diverse range of original films. With some similarities.

    You can already imagine the 20 minute discussion over the purchase of a horse. Or a 15 minute tense poker game. Can't wait. :awesome:
    This would be brilliant. Make it happen.

    Read your blog a couple of days ago and noticed the entry about the on demand downloads. Apparently over 20 leading Hollywood directors have protested, with James Cameron, Peter Jackson and Katheryn Bigelow involved. No wonder.

    Didn't Tarintino already direct Sukiyaki Western Django?

    If the above was his take on a Western I'm not holding out hope for the next

    Recently watched:

    Education of charlie banks- 8/10

    enjoyed this film, added a new aspect and genre to American college films

    Scouting Book for Boys- 5/10

    Perfectly captured the quintessential caravan park holidays (oh the memories), with additional sombre elements.
