Post subject:  Recent films. A very brief opinion.

The Pacifier - Very enjoyable.
Xmen 3 - Big let down compared to the Singer episodes.
Lucky Number Slevin - Enjoyed the first third. Plot and conclusion predictable. Thought Harnet was quite personable.
Curious George - Enjoyable enough.
Cars - Pants.
The Wild - Crap.
The Sentinal - Predictable, boring.
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang - Very Entertaining. Kilmer was gold.
White Chicks - How unfunny can films get. To be fair, I switched it off ten minutes in.

I really wish there was a higher percentage of quality films being shared on the internet or shown on TV.

I don't remember if "pants" is good or not.

Pants is bad.

I've watched it about seven times, for father-son reasons. I've seen worse. It's a bit confused in it's messages, that's for sure.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang was pretty funny.

You sure do watch a bit of crap to round things out.

Combination of factors. I only download dvd rips. that's the full 4 gb since I've not got any blank cds left and have nearly 200 dvds.

Second. I have free Sky Movies.

And third, you might as well have just quoted me, it would have been a far more polite thing to do instead of paraphrasing the original author (me).

Evidently you also have the time to watch them. Can I have some?

Finished my last job in July. Stayed home and looked after the kids, this is why most of those films are kids films. Started work 29th Aug.

Those films were viewed between July and now.

The Pacifier - kids.
Xmen 3 - kids.
Lucky Number Slevin - Saw it in July. Thought it was a bad film.
Curious George - Kids.
Cars - Kids.
The Wild - Kids.
The Sentinal - Downloaded it three weeks ago. Liked 24 so thought perhaps it would be a little different to your typical Clany-esque crap. Wrong. Same but worserer.
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang - Saw it earlier this week.
White Chicks - Carline put it on when I fell asleep watching football. It woke me up, I turned it back off after ten minutes.

Ah, so we've both been watching utter crap.

I usually find Vin Diesel kinda funny, it's a character flaw of mine. But this far exceeded my tolerance for formula. The one high point was Lauren Graham, who is, well, a goddess. Apart from that it was just too PG for me. A shame, considering I'm sick enough to have been lookin forward to it

White Chicks, yep. Entirely Unfunny. I've a high tolerance for inane cinema. None the less, this was about as depressingly pathetic as a movie can get.

On the converse side.. A quaint but entirely honest film. About a boy's life in Turkey and Greece, with frequent metaphors and analogies between food and life:

A Touch Of Spice

Very good, wonderfully sincere little ditty.

Seen it.

I agree, but it probably wouldn't have been so quaint if they skipped the FX at end.

Inside Man - A little predictable, but very slick.
The Hills Have Eyes (remake) - Teh suck.
League of Gentlemen Apocalypse - Hated it. Trying to forget it. The TV series shits on it.

I just tried to watch Kill Bill 2 a minute ago. It's so great that I'm now talking to you douchbags...

Seriously, stop reminding me of things I'd rather be watching.

The Squid and the Whale by Noah Baumbach.

Pretty good. Quick moving, though fairly predictable plot.
Better than Wes Anderson in some regards.
A little bit Tenembaums meets the Ice Storm, but only 77 minutes long.

I don't think it's meant to be "heavy", but you're entitled to be wrong.
