Oh Red Squirrel - I thought you looked familiar. Margin Call looks good.
I really enjoyed True Grit, right up to the last 2 minutes. what an odd ending.
And I loved Tintin after not thinking I would
Hello Ninja and Corinth
I feel more comfortable in my new identity because I truly am a squirrelly sort of girl, always red and never the grey invader.
I saw Animal Kingdom at a friend's. Disappointing and depressing to no purpose. First Aussie film I've not liked. I usually like the dark feel a lot of Australian directors inject into their productions.
Talking of Aus films, have people on here seen Picnic at Hanging Rock? The word atmospheric was made for that slice of celluloid ...
But RS doesn't sound as nice as Parky for a nickname. Squirelly is too long to type. I'm sure I'll adjust though had to see PAHR years ago but barely remember it now.
In my recent movie binge, I also saw 127 hours - no surprises as I knew the ending but still very watchable, and Another Year - A film seen with a fluffy film loving friend. The film didn't work for me. I just wanted to shake one of the main characters, Mary. It was certainly true to life but bored me.
I know what you're saying Ninja but I was having an identity crisis. I can't even remember your previous name, although I do remember you had a change.
I'm just playing with you but for the record, my previous nickname was abbreviated to LE so still easy to pronounce
Friday the 13th (Remake) 2/10
La Haine 8/10
Recent films were:
synecdoche new york - Very confused by the end but get the feeling that was the point?
Finally watched Avatar which I enjoyed
Intermanaut - good list of films!
Hi everyone (tentatively dipping toe in water). I'm new here, so hope you don't mind me posting here?
I'm off to see Tin Tin tonight, which will be quite a change to the previous film I saw last week which was "Drive". It was a good film but I nearly ended up under my seat when the 'hero' killed a baddie by stamping on his head!
This thread seems to have been abandoned, so in the hope of reviving it I'm reporting that I saw "Wuthering Heights" last night. Gritty, realistic, extraordinary. Lots of tramping around in the mud and rain. No music at all until the end titles. Graphic scene of a sheep being killed, and nasty things done to dogs. I wonder what Emily Bronte would have made of it.
Did I enjoy it? Hard to say really as I'm not sure that it is the sort of film that you are supposed to 'enjoy', but it WAS gripping in a bleak, grim sort of way!!
this thread seems to blow hot and cold so don't worry too much about there being no recent postings. I'll add WH to the 'must see at some point' list, I struggled a bit with the book, so it will be interesting to see which bits make it to the screen.
Caught up with a couple of superhero 'brain in neutral' films last weekend, like Intermanaut I rated X-men as better than Green Lantern but both far inferior to Thor.
