Watching 'Memento' tonight... review to follow

(busy day).
Well, Battle Royale was very violent, but it was so weird and the premise so unusual, it didn't seem so bad!

Recently, a film I rather enjoyed was shown late at night on TV, an Australian production called "Dead Letter Office" (1998)about a branch of the post office in of course, deals with the delivery of incorrectly or partially addressed letters, or with attempts to trace people whose letters have been returned. It also deals with the friendships and relationships between the colleagues, and in particular, the protagonist, who attempts to trace her father and has taken on a job to facilitiate this.

There are no "known" actors, and the setting is unusual, but one somehow just gets drawn into it, this low-key film has its own charm. You are constantly rooting for the main character, Alice, and hope that she finds her father as well as personal happiness.

(This was the second time I had seen it!!).

I love Anchorman flyinghaggis! Will Ferrel is a legend.

Anchorman! The Ron Burgundy character was so cringeworthy, I found Will Ferrel totally watchable in the role! (er- while ironing for the month).

There's tons of quotes & choice dialogue on IMDB from this one, including:
Brian Fantana: That was some crazy party. I am hungover.
Champ Kind: I know. I woke up this morning and I shit a squirrel. I'm not kidding! It just came out of nowhere. I tried to flush it down the toilet and it crawled back up.
Brick Tamland: Sorry, Champ. I think I ate your chocolate squirrel.

Review of Mona Lisa Smile—23/02/06

crap from start to finish.

Started watching Shinobi last night but got a bit bored with it. Quite disappointed but I'll finish watching it today.

Primer, on the other hand, I shall not bother to finish watching. It might be "clever" but it is dull as ditch water.

Think House of Flying Daggers, Hero et al but with Ninjas and then make it not quite as good as you thought it would be.
23/02/2006 at 11:47
how is it possible to make a bad movie with ninjas?

even ninja thunderbolt, possibly the most badly put together movie ever, was still great.

for example, a car chase featuring two similar cars the same colour so you don't know who is who?

bank robberies that begin at night and end in the day?

fab tho check it out for comedy value.

It's not a bad movie just not as good as you would expect it to be.

Corinthian - where's your Memento review? Or did I read it 15 minutes ago?

Two films in recent days:

1. "Blind Horizon" - thinks it's the Bourne Identity but isn't. It's really not very good. And it stars Val Kilmer.

2. "Patton" - I like my war films and had somehow managed to miss this. Decent stuff in an old-school WWII way. And it reminded me of the time I had an argument with my history teacher over what became of Rommel - I won, of course.

Saw Sky Captain last night.

Was quite good, even though you know its all CGI. Was also impressed with Angelina's English accent, far better than Gwyneth's American one.

Who's Corinthian? I've got a tattoo on my arm saying "ask Corinthian if he liked Memento".

And what's Memento?
23/02/2006 at 15:25

Memento (2000)- starring Guy Pearce. Haven't seen it, I just know that it's about his character's memory being messed up after he gets bashed in the head after his wife's murder, and to find out what happened he has to rely on polaroid shots and other memory aids because he basically has the memory of a goldfish now. Told in forward flash.

moomoo - you really should watch it. If only I could remember what "it" is...
