    Charming comedy from the director of the best Bourne movie, written by and starring Iron Man's chauffeur. Also starring that dude from the second season of True Detective and that guy from Band of Brothers that like Vat 69. 4/5

    The new Tom Hanks film, "The Bridge" (or something like that), looks quite decent.

    I grew up reading stories about the Cold War and people like Rudolf Abel and Gary Powers, so I'll definitely see it. The lead role sounds like the sort of role that Hanks plays very well, too, so it should suit him well.

    Gave Kill Bill vol 1 and 2 a second watch after idk how long it's been since I first saw it, will probably do the same with Pulp Fiction.

    I'm eventually going to watch these.

    Bend it like Beckham - Gurinder Chadha (2002)

    Loved this movie about the conflict between the culture and the individual. So simple and so sweet, this is a movie made of a talented director who knew how to make the most out of little. So much vitality that I forgive that the actors are just medium. And the reason Keira is ok is that she is not the lead.

    Shitty poster, but this is the best movie I've seen this year. If they get the right promotion I see Oscar nods all over the place: Adapted Screenplay, Director, Actress, Supporting Actor.

    Go see it.

    Pulp Fiction- I watch the dance scene all the time- super song and super dancing in a crazy movie.

    The Young Elisabeth - Jean-Marc Valléet ( 2009)

    It is difficult to understand that this is made by the same man that made the thrilling 'Dallas buyers club', since this movie is so sweet and quiet, but so distant, and the pictures are just the opposite of the content of the movie. It is not that easy to portrait conflict by using harmony. Nice, even clever - but uninspired photos.
    The acting feels mechanical and I never get under the skin of these people; they might be good - but I never get get to know them.
    Nice dresses though, and glimpse of a nice room once in a while. I think this movie says little about life. At least my life.

    meh, it's fine. No surprises here. Good for a watch, but nothing too remarkable IMO.

    Not bad a conspiracy flick for a Saturday night in. Strong cast George Clooney Tom Wilkinson Tilda Swinton and the late great Sydney Pollack.

    Interesting take on the issues involved as seen from the perspective of the janitor, I thought they were plumbers, as the narrative progresses. However thought the ending was somewhat rushed. 3.5/5

    Just watched Bridge of Spies, the trailer is complete bollocks and describes an entirely different film. I enjoyed the shit out this. It's quite good, but it's really nothing like what is depicted in the trailer.

    Had freebies and to be honest not bad,the story alone is fantastic, it was entertaining and stuck to the core of the story, what more can you ask of Hollywood. 2.5/5

    The documentary Man on Wire is better to be honest.

    Really? My suspicion that this for me would likely be relegated to "top pick for in-flight movie" one year from now was being seriously reinforced by the other menz' reviews til now...

    I suspect that based on the trailers they may have gone in expecting an action movie. It's not. The closest film I can think of in terms of tone would be the Cuban missile crisis movie Thirteen Days from a decade or so ago. It's all the background stuff.
