Blue dialed Inge, anyone? As new offerings from IWC goes, this one looks pretty good. And at a manageable 40mm too. I don't care for the case back, but at least it's solid.
The Town was good too (so maybe Ben needs to direct Ben...).***This week in unnecessary remakes:"I believe that - like me - these guys are extreme athletes!"
I may have gotten it wrong, but AFAIK denim differs from chambray in how it's woven, so if you check the back of the fabric and it has diagonal lines it's denim whereas chambray with its plain weave would be identical on both sides...
^ You're welcome. *** Delightfully weird with a nice performance by Gyllenhaal and quite a WTF?!? ending. Benefits from diving into some interpretations. 4/5
I don't disagree. If I remember my experience of it correctly, comming out of the cinema in '95 I'm pretty sure I would've rated it 5/5. Watching it again now didn't have quite the same impact. Benicio del Toro is still hilarious though.Yeah, that part is a bit hard to watch. But like you say, it was big in the 90's: [[SPOILER]] ***Not the easiest film to follow (I didn't understand much of what anyone said for the first 15 minutes - not that I think you were supposed to,...
At the beginning of Coherence I was a bit annoyed by the extreme close ups and the shaky cam (I imagine seeing this in a cinema would have made that extra bad), but as the story unfolded I found it less grating. Agreed that for what it was, it was rather well done, even though it didn't totally live up to the expectations I'd gotten from the trailer from about a year ago.Reading about Coherence did lead me to Primer, so that's next.
I've sadly never gotten around to seeing that, but I know it had an awesome poster: [[SPOILER]] ***Fun little indie thought experiment, where the passing of a nearby comet (maybe) opens doors to a parallel universe (or more), and how it's experienced by a dinner party of eight friends. 3/5
I used to have that on VHS (along with A Better Tomorrow and The Killer).That scene where Chow Yun Fat and Tony Leung clear first one level of the hospital, then have some dialogue in the elevator, exit and take out one more floor of baddies, all in one take
This deserves a large poster.First off, I was worried that this would've been totally ruined by a over-reliance on teal/orange color-grading like at least one of the the trailers might indicate. Thankfully that wasn't the case (there's still a lot of color-grading going on, but it isn't teal and orange all the time like in some recent movies).Hardy is unfortunately not as good a Max as Gibson was. He tries to be mad, but he lacks Gibson's crazy eyes. But still, what a...
Dug out the dvd of this (which reminds me I should probably pick up Eastern Promises too). My favourite of the three Cronenberg/Mortensen films. 5/5 And rather looking forward to Fury Road tomorrow.
