Quote from: Artie Fufkin on January 20, 2021, 12:59:41 PMWild Target - 2009Bill Nighy, Emily Blunt & Ron Weasley in this 'crime caper'. Yeah, I liked it. Emily is very easy on the eye as always. It was fun.Bill is reunited with his soulmate Gregor Fisher from Love Actually. They don't like each other in this film.Rupert Everett as a slightly camp bad guy, Martin Freeman plays Martin Freeman with a gun, along with quite a few little cameo performances.Better than expected.
Quote from: phantom_power on January 20, 2021, 12:44:44 PMSimple Men & Amateur - I have been wary of revisiting Hal Hartley because I am not sure if they will hold up no I am not a pseudy teen but they do. I am a sucker for that studied, quirky style and he fills his films with interesting minor characters and great actors. Amateur has early roles for Tim Black Nelson, Michael Imperioli, Parker Posey and Paul Schulze. A lot of the logic of the plot doesn't hold up but that is beside the point a bit. And obviously the music is great throughout with some fantastic original music as well as some great 90s indie needle drops

I've enjoyed them.It's worth checking out Karen Silas' other 90's classic What Happened Was, I couldn't find physical copies but it's really cheap for a really long rental on Vimeo (which I then grabbed with youtube-dl)https://vimeo.com/ondemand/whathappenedwas

After watching the series I wanted to see the film to answer the question "why tf they made this series?"Almost shut it off after 30 minutes but it gains momentum as they progress up the train. The visuals of the various cars was fun. There's a schoolroom scene that really felt Fifth Element-y in visuals and ott characterization. Glad I stuck it out to the end but would not watch again. Edit-- will seek out more Boon Jong HO

Quote from: Dave The Triffids on January 21, 2021, 09:37:37 AMCop LandAbsolutely no idea why I'd never seen this before, given that I'm a big fan of all the lead actors in it. Superb film. It's also interesting to play "spot the Soprano's star" - there are many..!

Quote from: SteveDave on January 21, 2021, 09:16:34 AMNight Of The HunterI thought I'd seen this because I remember being really disappointed with the ending. Turns out the DVD I watched (in 2008?) was shit and must've skipped the last chapter because that version ended with him on the horse in silhouette and the kid saying "Doesn't he ever sleep?" Weird. Anyway, on second viewing (with the ending) I loved it all over again. Robert Mitchum was a scary MF.

Quote from: EOLAN on January 23, 2021, 10:52:45 AMOffice Romance (1977)A Soviet Union comedy, over two and a half hours. Directed by Eldar Ryazanov. Absolutely magnificent. A lovely document at times of the 70s Moscow landscape and people getting on with their lives.But at the heart is an absolutely hilarious wonderful romantic comedy, with plenty of office satire and a catchy score that carries it along. Central performance by Alise Freindlich is stunning. Suppose to be uglied up but oozes so much sex appeal for me at least.Mixes poignant character moments with screwball comedies. Like a mix of early Woody Allen and some classic Hollywood gems like the Apartment and Bringing Up Baby. Also perfect encapsulation of one type of office character, who is constantly organising gathering money to celebrate people's birthdays, leaving dos etc....5 out of 5

Quote from: wasp_f15ting on January 23, 2021, 10:20:21 PMNightingale - I came across this on Netflix and just popped it on last night.This is one of the most horrendous films I have ever seen.. but it was so well shot, and the story was good if a bit long. Would recommend this but if you are squeamish and dislike violence and or sexual violence do not watch.
