    Saw The Prisoners last night . If any movie can be described as "gripping" it's this one

    I would hope so... This is one of Ford's and Wayne's best work, I love it :)



    re-watched this recently, and all I can say is, it is still as powerful and intense as back then..

    L'Avventura is the best of the Antonioni films in Italian, although Blow-Up is imo the best overall.

    Il Grido holds up, I find.
    For Antonioni's English language films, I prefer The Passenger to Blow Up, as good as it is. The final scene in the former is astounding.

    Looking forward to this. Love the Cornetto trilogy (or at least the first two parts).

    Watched the end of Real Steel with my 4 year old nephew. When it was over he took off his pants, put them on over his head and started hitting himself with a cardboard brick.

    Seems like a perfectly appropriate response to me.

    Shame - Fantastic movie. Fassbender is an amazing actor and McQueen is just as good of a director. I've been meaning to see Hunger for awhile and now it looks like its been put on the short list.

    Couldn't tell you what it's about... only that its brilliant.

    Other recent watches and my brief rewiews :p

    Safety not guaranteed - Really enjoyed it. Worth a watch.
    Cloud Atlas - You either love or hate it, I'm torn.
    Mud - Enjoyable!
    The kings of summer - It was OK.
    The lives of others - Brilliant.
    This is the end - An easy watch.
    We're the millers - Unwatchable. It's awful in every way.
    The world's end - Enjoyed it.
    The raid - Not as good as I had hoped.

    Also guys, I beg you all to watch a French TV series called Les Revenants ('The Returned' in the UK). I hate most television, but this is just superb. Certainly worth a break from watching movies to catch the 8 episode series!

    I am still not sure. It was either brilliant or terrible.
    I might watch it again.
