'The Times' is giving away copies of 'Donnie Darko' on Sunday.

For those who didn't catch it at the Cinema or who've not seen the DVD/Video enjoy the originality and plot twists and turns... but prepare to be perplexed...

I still don't know what to make of the ending... 3 years since I first seen it... which has to be a good thing... hasn't it!?!

I haste films that I don't get...Donnie Darko being one of them.

Another one was (I forget what its called) but its based in the second world war and these men stagger through the fog only to find this trench and that it is inhabited by some evil...thing. It ends up killing all bar one who gets away.

At the end of it, your left thinking 'what the....?'

Admittedly I also hate films where they go into so much detail to explain what's going on - it's so patronising.

Lawro - I haven't see that film, and I can't remember what it's called, but it's definitely World War One.

New Bond girl's been announced - Eva Green (the one from Kingdom of Heaven).

Lawro SVT

Film was called 'Deathwatch' and it was WW1 (if it is the same movie I'm thinking of)

Director was MJ Basset.(I think) Good concept ruined by gawd awful editing and shitty script. Pace and direction was not good either.

(I heard it had quite a few re-writes)

tryin to think what that kingdom of heaven lassie looks like.

a pretty forgettable movie.

She probably looked like one of those fotofit Hollywood starlets.
17/02/2006 at 13:12
You know - her...

Dodge - she's French.
17/02/2006 at 13:19
Yep, French people get in Hollywood movies too.
17/02/2006 at 13:23
They get everywhere.

McBride's cheeky flick on for Helgusson, in the Fulham game last week, was quite good.... Oh. Cock and Bull Story was last one I saw. Coogan on form for first time in a while and some genuine laugh out loud moments, I thought!

Just watched House of Sand and Fog and can recommend it. Maybe a little slow but worth watching all the same.

yep HOSAF was intense or what?
perfect casting, particularly jennifer connolly.

paul bettany is a lucky boy.

I recently saw the puppet animation movie Team America: World Police. It is made by the same people who did South Park. Wow!. I can not remember laughing so much ever, had to watch it again to make sure I caught most of the jokes.

Jarhead was ok, definately not the usual America is brill war movie.
18/02/2006 at 08:13

really? i was really let down by it. Love South Park and particularly the movie, but thought this was juvenile, but this time not in a good way.
thought most of the gags fell flat.

I liked Jarhead but I felt I'd been this way before with 'Full Metal Jacket'.

Sam Mendes took an unusual rout in having a war film with very little actual war in it.

I'm not sure about any anti-war/anti-American foriegn policy message embedded in the film... thought that it made war quite attractive (which is the problem with most anti-war movies).

....Film score is ace though...

flyinghaggis: I was not expecting something highly intellectual, just plain funny and that it was all done with puppets ie no computer graphics.

TAWP had it's choice moments, including:
- sex scene
- the puke scene
- the Bakalaka(sp?) St episode

I think I'll watch the DVD again :-)
