    Just finished Snowtown. Not as "hard to watch" as people made it out to be. Didn't like how it ended abruptly.

    Finally got around to watching Moon with Sam Rockwell. I'm not too familiar with sci fi but this was great for a directional debut, although the ending was underwhelming.

    Yeah, by just making the clones go into the pod and be incinerated/sent off into space/whatever instead and for the people on earth to actually never come at all would've been so much better (and it's what I expected to happen). The ending ruined the entire premise of the movie.

    Really? I thought it was very appropriate. It wasn't a dramatic ending by any means; instead, it was the breaking of the cycle that made the movie great for me. The ending itself -- which was appropriately very short (longer certainly would have been pointless) -- was just the logical conclusion to that. But hey, different strokes....

    Shadow of a Doubt. Always get a kick out of the lighting and muliple shadows in these films

    My problem wasn't really with the lack of drama, it jst seemed rushed how they decided to add the compilation of newscasts from Earth about his arrival, that felt really cheap. I would've been happy if it just ended with him flying off towards Earth in the spacepod in silence

    Ah, gotcha. I guess I didn't mind it, but I didn't need it either.

    ^One of my favorites.

    I tried watching The Hunger Games, just for the hell of it. I made it about 40 minutes into it, and couldn't continue. What an awful movie.

    The Hunter

    Quite possibly the shittiest, unexplainable ending to ever be in a movie.

    He spends all this time hunting a Tasmanian Tiger, the last of its kind. Finally he finds it at the very end and shoots it (like he was supposed to) but rather than bring it back to be tested, he burns it in a fire?????? if you're not going to put it to good use, don't shoot the fucking thing. You just caused an animal to become extinct and you burn it?????I don't know if it was supposed to be some sort of spiritual B.S. but it didn't make sense. Even if it can't reproduce because it's the last of it's kind, it can at least enjoy the last of it's life in peace (or maybe there's 2 of them and you just killed the last thing it can reproduce with)

    fuck tard

    I thought it was a pretty good movie. A bit too subtle and vague at times which made it hard to understand some of the nuances but overall it was a well made film. It's not a date movie for sure.

    I liked the ending actually.

    Watched 21 Jump Street friday night. I thought it was pretty funny. Went and saw Lawless on Saturday. Great movie. Tom Hardy was amazing in it.


    My favorite Hitchcock film.

    + 1, I'm a great fan of Tom Hardy, really want to see it.

    I went to see Scarface at the cinema tonight. My town has a great little film club which shows classic films each week, though I was gutted to miss Withnail and I last week.

    Notorious (1946)

    I've been obsessed with Hitchcock, Grant, & Bergman for their respective roles. Bergman is an anomaly to me. Trying to think of a current day actress to compare here to
