    The music is brilliant! None of my friends appreciate his movies though I think they don't like the quirky akwardness of them which is exactly what makes them so :awesome:
    Have you seen this? It's some couple's Wes Anderson-style wedding invite video...



    It's rather cheesy and definitely obsessive, but I think it's the height of cuteness.

    Request? Understandable.

    Left us to the mercy of the generic 'What is your favourite film?" threads though. Film is doomed. :emo:

    ----

    Also just watched The Way Back. Wasn't expecting much, but it turned out to be a pretty fantastic film. Took a while to realise it was the same girl from Hanna, Saoirse Ronan.
    I loved that film. Also found it to be much better than I expected. I still haven't seen Hanna (hoping to see it some time this week) but if Saoirse Ronan's performance is half as good in it, I'll be impressed.

    I saw Arthur yesterday, and probably enjoyed it more than Phalanges did. I still loathe Russell Brand, but he's somewhat lest detestable in movies, though it would have been nothing without Helen Mirren. I love her. :puppyeyes:

    Apprentice is on soon. :coma:

    Yep, The Cosmic Cube!!!!!!!! I believe it plays a crucial part of next months Captain America. Sets it all up very nicely to next years Avengers.

    The mist... the story for it is actually good but the film was Meh I agree, but it was interesting to just play out that idea, what would people do if trapped in that situation with each other. I really like films that 'explore humanity' like that
    Yeah I liked the plot and the idea, I didn't really like the lack of back-story or...

    ...the end really, ie when he shoots everyone then immediately gets saved himself. I was watching it with some friends, one of whom sadistically laughed for about 5 minutes and then kept going on about how awesome it was later... scared me a bit lol.


    I can never decide whether or not I like Stephen King adaptations in general. I mean there are some amazing ones like Shawshank and The Shining, etc, but then there are some...let's say dubious ones like The Mist and... I can't make up my mind on Secret Window lol. I really like it but at the same time it's like "err...ok...if you say so" if you know what I mean... I'm not really making much sense am I?

    Indeed I did :teeth: Me, my friend and a few other people were cool enough to know about it :cool: I can't wait for The Avengers, though this summer I can be satisfied with Captain America and Green Lantern :gah:

    When talking about Thor I have to say...Loke was my favorite character in the film :mmm: though there has to be more than one enemy in the Avengers, I guess we will find out more after watching the other heroes.

    I saw a bit of Timecrimes on Film4 and it looked really intriguing. Definitely on my to-watch list.

    Do you know any decent dystopian films, similar to Brazil or 1984? It can be foreign language or in English.
    Equilibrium (with Christian Bale) comes to mind. I really liked that film. It's a combination of concepts and elements from 1984 and Fahrenheit 451.

    The Matrix, The Island, Twelve Monkeys, Blade Runner, A Clockwork Orange, Children of Men and V for Vendetta are other ones.

    I'd definitely recommend giving them all a watch. :yep:

    Rewatched The Shawshank Redemption earlier <3
    Shame Mr Darabont did so well with that then The Green Mile and then so epically failed with The Mist! Not that it's really bad just...The Mist...
    I was so glad when that ...

    The Dark Towers in trouble, and not just from the Crimson King...

    http://www.craveonline.com/film/arti...k-tower-fallen

    Javier Bardem would have made such a good Roland too.
    Yeah, like I said, it's At the Mountains of Madness all over again. :sad:

    Though I'm not sure if the Dark Tower not going ahead is an entirely bad thing.

    It was really inspirational in a sense by showing the extent that people can go to survive. I'm not sure why but throughout the film I kept expecting them to descend into cannibalism. Didn't trust that Valka guy. Not even taking into account Hanna, she was excellent in Lovely Bones and Atonement too. I can't wait 'till I see Hanna. :moon:

    Aha yes, so did I. The ending was very sweet, too. Though somewhat spoiled by some idiot girl in front of me telling her boyfriend she didn't get it. I forgot she was in Atonement! I haven't seen Lovely Bones - I read the book and thought it was a steaming pile of ****e, so I doubt I'd like the film.

    I've seen them all.

    They're all brilliant except for The Island, which is just Puma tracksuits and explosions. I''m gonna try some sci-fi like Total Recall etc.

    Thanks anyway, though.

    Haha yeah I lolled when I opened that spoiler - it's the only part of the film I remember really liking!

    And on another note I really don't see the big deal with Equilibrium - I thought it was a bit flat tbh :/ no offence to your film taste of course lol.
