Re: Fast 6 Review (spoilers)

The latest Pegg/Frost/Wright MASTERPIECE, The World's End... Fucking loved it. Pegg's character hit disturbingly close to home for me at times though. So many bits where I inwardly groaned; "Oh god, that's me. I think like that. I do things like that." He thinks he's hilarious, but he's just a depressing dick who refuses to change and one of his big speeches towards the end of the film is something I've said in a depressive state to a few of my friends. Also, I really appreciated that they did a really great take off of John Carpenter and Halloween 3 without it being super obvious. There's a lot of Dean Cundey influence in the visuals, so even when I wasn't laughing at the jokes, I was laughing at the subtleties of the shot composition.

So yeah, as good as Shaun... and Hot Fuzz, go see when it comes out in your heathen countries.

Re: Fast 6 Review (spoilers)

Oh hey! Those were movies I really enjoyed. I hated that stupid alien movie (ted? Frank?) so much I verbally harassed patrons who enjoyed it in the theater.

I also really liked Super 8, which I am about to watch.

Re: Fast 6 Review (spoilers)

Paul was the one you mean. It was mediocre. I'd put the blame on it not being directed by Edgar Wright and not really being one of that trilogy. Also, Seth Bloody Rogan was the alien. I can't deny I've enjoyed a couple of movies he's been in (Observe and Report, Green Hornet), but otherwise, I find him a bit of a one trick pony. I liked that both Paul and Cabin in the Woods had late-movie cameos by Sigourney Weaver though. Fuck, Cabin in the Woods was a great film.

I saw Super 8 for the first time last month, that is a lovely movie. I don't buy into all the JJ Abrams hype too much, but between that and Star Trek 2009, I appreciate the guy. He's got a knack for doing sentimental stuff without making you reach for the sickbag.

BUMP.

The Alan Partridge movie was great. Manages to make the area of England in which I live look quite nice as well.

WHAT THE FUCK?

YOU GUYS CAN'T APPRECIATE FAST FURIOUS 6??

You weren't really looking into it. Its a great movie. You all just lacked the different set of brain.

Can someone suggest me any other movie which is worth a watch?

Which movie are you talking about? Iron Man 3, Furious 6 or Man of Steel?
I hope you're talking about the last one but you are not me so anything is possible.

Oh don't bother, you'll never get a specific, interesting answer out of Needles.

Seeing that pair of pictures of Ben Kingsley in those two roles makes me realise quite how clever his casting actually was. What a fucking masterstroke.

Re: Fast 6 Review (spoilers)

Don't diss The Shining, it rules.

A lot of 70's horror is solid. I'd say the scariest, like, the one that absolutely shook me down to the very core is the Kaufman version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. I mean I've seen tense stuff, I've seen stuff that made me jump, stuff that made me feel a bit grossed out, but that one left me feeling utterly hopeless for quite a while after I saw it.

Evil Dead 1 and 2 and the remake are all pretty great as well. Never found any of them scary, but fuck are they fun.

The Shining is great, I do like Kubrick films (who doesn't?)

I just don't like slashers / torture porn.

Has anyone here seen Black fish?

Re: Fast 6 Review (spoilers)

I'd take a slasher any day over the current crop of found footage jump scare bullshit. Better yet, I'll have one of the Italian ones, Suspiria especially.

But speaking of Kubrick, I ended my The Thick of It marathon with the movie, In The Loop. Like Kubrick's Strangelove, it made me laugh a lot, but left me depressed as hell come the end. I'm utterly delighted at Peter Capaldi being Doctor Who though.

"Run you clever boy!"
"AWWW, FUCK OFF."

It's been months, I still laugh every time that bit happens.

Re: Fast 6 Review (spoilers)

The new Robocop didn't make me throw up all over myself. In fact, I didn't mind it at all. Not a patch on the original, but did enough differently and had enough of its own identity and scope to get a pass. The caveat to all that is, while I think it builds quite a nice world for itself, of recent films, Looper did so much more successfully and for hyper violent, satirical sci-fi action, Dredd is pretty much the modern Robocop.

I guess my advice would be to watch either of those first, but if you really must, Robocop 2014 ain't bad and it isn't lazy. It tries.

Clumsy edit: Alright, I'm still thinking about it the morning after. I complained to a friend that it didn't have a strong villain, but actually, the villain it does have is a fucking subtle one and if you had to come up with a 21st century Dick Jones, it'd be that guy. He's a soulless corporate machine wrapped up in a veneer of charming likability and tweedy playboy cool and he never, not once drops the sneering grand villain speech, even when the it all goes south.

The satire isn't as funny and overt as the original, the movie does get in some subtle digs at its own 12A nature and its remake status, while the world it invents is less the crumbling, crime ridden dystopia, more internationally nightmarish and quite relevent with it. The one kill we see an ED-209 make is a completely bloodless affair, but given the victim, it's not a kill you want to see and when those guns open up, they're viewed through the voyeuristic lens of a news team as a triumphant thing. The first ten minuites set up the state of a whole world, rather than just the single city of the original and they do it really well. It takes its time too and gets some memorably great performances out of its cast. The guy playing Murphy is fucking excellent. Gary Oldman is always fucking excellent. Michael Keaton... Looks old. He's still great.

I guess my point is, you shouldn't avoid it on what it doesn't do (extreme, over the top violence, snarky cartoon satire), but see it for what it does very well (pathos, a believable, memorably bleak yet reasonably forseeable global setting, excellent performances all round). As I said, don't bank on it beating out the original, but it's a worthy enough stab that's worth a go.

And Jesus, while the "unmasking" scene happens relatively early on, it's way more horriffic than I was expecting. I think it should sit rather well in the pantheon of iconic horror/science fiction imagery.

Re: Fast 6 Review (spoilers)

I think the way to approach it is akin to the Dawn of the Dead remake. A great film in its own right that shares little but the premise with the original, goes off, does its own thing very effectively.

Saw Rush this evening. Absolutely fucking WEPT at the end. The whole film's a big, manipulative and rather corny Hollywood biopic done with a fair bit of Top Gear-esque visual flair and an absolute truckload of really bad English accents, but I got swept along by the thing. The scenes of Lauda in the hospital after his big crash are punishing to sit through. I think the Hans Zimmer score is probably the best of his career so far, excluding his Sherlock Holmes theme tune and that only wins out because the dulcimers and wonky piano rule.

It strikes me that as a director, Ron Howard really has had the most amazingly diverse, difficult to pin down career.
