    i said no real crescendo. it just sorta goes... fluuhhh at the end. sure it builds but then it just deflates quickly like a disturbed half done souffle.


    observe.


    what should have happened:




    but we got this instead:






    you get the difference? i'm not saying there's no crescendo i just don't acknowledge one exists because it's so lame. both versions are not how i would have done it at all. oh yes same style but with much more pomp.

    underworld 10/10

    i like this movie. it's good and long and the plot is strange and a bit twisty
    because it's full of black and grey morality. most decisions made by characters
    are twisty in one way or another because it's a world full of secret plots and
    corruption. noone is absolutely right or wrong.


    also kate beckinsale is fucking hot, i love those boots on her. plus she's
    a dark haired dark eyed (both score points in my book) brit (another for the accent)
    who's fucking beautiful. her face structure is incredibly pleasing and quite satisfying to
    admire.


    plus she's got nice pursey lips...
    you know, duck face but to a lesser, subtler and much sexier extent, like when
    a character is concentrating or something really hard so their face tenses up.


    also it's got that awesome old british dude in it



    honestly i can dig the whole vampire thing. never liked the sun or brightness much
    so i wouldn't mind keeping to the dark. plus the whole blood-is-my-drug-and-
    my-life-force thing... keeps things simple. and, you know, immortality, being able to
    drift through time like a sprite. it's one thing i want to see the most, how everything
    turns out as time goes on. live milllenia, see how the world changes to the very end.


    then there's the whole vanity thing, which i dig too. be young forever.



    plus it's not like i'm cursed to live forever, i can always die if i want.



    being a vampire would be pretty fuckin sweet. as long as it's a sweet mythos.

    i like meadows but i sure as fuck hate what twilight did to vampires and the occult.

    except that the original version is way more awesome, that different version is cheesy and the crescendo is no different except for the addition of one guitar track over the top that adds no intensity to it
    seriously just turn the other one up maybe it's too quiet a youtube video
    ok

    Yet another in depth review, i should really be getting on with work... Engineering doesn't prostrate itself in front of you like a dog, it needs to be whipped into submission like an enraged lion.
    On with the review!





    There is every now and again a film which comes out that can be summarised in the title. One that springs to mind (albeit of lesser standing) is Zack and Miri Make a Porno. But i digress, The film in question does just that, It is in no short term about the assassination of infamous western criminal Jesse James by one of his compatriots, Robert Ford who ends up being defamed by history as a coward for his actions and the timeline preceding these events. simple yes?

    But not as simple as it may seem, for every great story or film there is an underlying sub-scene, another message that the film/story is trying to convey to its audience. ANd this film is not only that, a great film, but also a fantastic story.

    Visually, the film is just stunning, The barren western landscapes are shot through lenses that give it that tin type photo feel, which sets the scene and really captures the mood of the story. The blurred effects of the oldtype lenses only add to the unhinged portrayal of James who is played by Brad Pitt. This film is a Film that does away with the pretty boy image of the actor, and he really shines through with fantastic performance, showing James to be a un-caged lion, but with a sense on melancholic foreboding, as if he has a knowledge that he is living on borrowed time. It's matched, and perhaps even bettered, by a superb performance by Casey Affleck as Ford; Affleck is a dreamer, a man refusing to grow up, whose fantasies of riding with the James gang and being the criminal's best buddy seem to have corrupted his naive innocence. When the cold-blooded reality sinks in of the true nature of Jesse's work and Jesse's character, it becomes unbearable.

    There are other terrific performances in the film, not least from Sam Rockwell as Ford's older brother, whose own gullibility is soon swallowed up by fear, and a short but mesmerising turn from Garret Dillahunt as Ed Miller, whose paranoia costs him his life and lights the fuse for James' own fragile sense of trust to be shattered.

    The script is well paced, exploring the story like a history documentary with Hugh Ross' calm narration. There's no point in hiding the ending - the title's given it away already. Instead, the script is full of explanations, showing why Ford did what he did, and leaving it up to us to determine whether or not it was a good thing and whether or not he really was a 'coward', as suggested in the ballad sung by one of the film's co-composers, Nick Cave. He and Warren Ellis do a fine job with the score, leaving it subtle and calm, and adding to the quiet life out in the wilderness.

    Overall, the film is about fame and the hunger for fame. James is famous for his notoriety, a man who, like the characters played by Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis in "Natural Born Killers", becomes famous for all the wrong reasons. Ford wants the same kind of fame, but when he gets it in the aftermath of his role in James' death, he finds it stifling and unsatisfying, and over far too quickly; the fame of a coward does not last as long as the fame of a 'hero'. And so the film speaks volumes for us today, in this age where we've lived through the last decade as the Decade of 15 Minutes, the decade where anyone and everyone can be famous for as long as Ford was, and can still find it as he does.

    A fantastic film. Which i would very seriously recommend you watch. If you liked the feel of say, the proposition or more recently drive. Different styles of film with a similar feel.

    8.4/10

    Don't get me wrong, it was beyond shit. Actually now that I think about it the reason I enjoyed it was because there was a mental woman sitting at the back that felt she was a part of the movie. There was a part where one character cussed another character and she shouted "SHAAAAME" and another part where they were in a skyscraper that was about to get destroyed by a bad transformer (decepticon?) and it cut to the transformer about to shoot and she shouted "SHOOT!" just as it went quiet.

    First three quarters were fantastic, the other quarter not so much. I mean the last part could have been done in so many different less retarded ways, it annoyed me the route it went down. Pretty solid movie overall though.

    Chronicle (2012) a film about kids who got exposed to something and got some quite incredible powers.

    It was all good, very interesting and cool idea depicted in a decent story and setting, some funny usage of the super powers for once.

    But the ending was basically just "And now, even more awesome shit will happen but the film ends here so you can only imagine."

    The Grey - 3/4

    Pretty, well done, and incredibly intense.

    As a rule, I don't care much for movies about death, so thematically, I tended to rather dislike this film up until the the last scene, at which point, the movie took on another dimension and I'm still not sure what it was trying to say. When he recites the last line of the poem for the last time, he emphasizes "live and die on this day", so I wonder whether the movie was about life rather than death. It doesn't change how comfy the movie is with the topic of death throughout the film however...

    In any case, the last scene, despite the fact that I tend to dislike when movies attempt to make me care, did in fact "move" me, and I can only describe that scene as very very good, both in terms of film, and in terms of theme.

    An all round decent horror film but not without it's flaws. Thankfully does not resort to blood and guts for it's scares.

    Other note, it should not be a 12A, for one it will scare children and young teens to the point they wont sleep.

    But more importantly they ruin the experience for everyone else, screaming at points that are not all that scary, and crying, good lord the crying.

    Night Of The Living Dead (1968) -8/10?

    Enjoyed this film quite a lot. Very original at its time (even though I could pretty much work out the story exactly except right for the very end, but that's because so many zombie films that followed were massively influenced by it) and its influence is incredibly obvious if you've even seen just one zombie film in your time. Created the modern zombie film, and the modern perception of the zombie (however they're referred to as ghouls in this, not zombies)

    I can imagine this would also have been quite terrifying in the 60s haha, some of it's quite graphic.    I actually found it kind of disturbing when the child zombie murders her mother with the little garden spade!

    You should listen to the Simon Mayo and Mark Kermode podcast. There was a short interview with someone at the BBFC about why it's a 12A. At first it was a 15 but the distributor wanted it changed to 12A because it's only a PG-13 in America.

    Edited:

    They cut seconds out of scenes and made jump scares a bit quieter from what I can remember.

    Moneyball - 9/10

    I'm not sure how to explain it. The movie doesn't really have a steady flow, but it has that feel of "oh, everything was building up to this moment". It wasn't really what I expected, it gets points for that. Most baseball (or of any other sports, actually) movies are usually full of cliches, and this one surprised me.    Sad that they didn't win that match, though

    Dragging, strange scenes are one of the reasons this film is such a masterpiece

    It's meant to be weird, it's meant to confuse you, you're not supposed to feel you're just watching another film. It's made to be a unique experience, not something that just goes over you

    It obviously did just go right over you though, but for all the wrong reasons. I guess you just didnt get it lol

    watch it again I'd say
