I was bored over the weekend, so I got this out on DVD. Christopher Walken
is a scary scary guy. It wasnt as good as I remembered, but thats because I
knew all the twists already I think. If you havent seen it, its well worth a
I got this out to watch purely on a whim, and boy I’m glad I did. A
documentary following an Australian family’s journey of discovery about
their own country. As a mother learns about the detention centres in
Australia she becomes determined to do something to help the refugees
arbitrarily detained there. I wont say anything more as I dont want to ruin
Now I’m going to say very little about this movie, it was all said by Cat
and Laurel on saturday night already. Suffice to say I liked it. It was fun,
go see it.
We went to see this today, and whiles its depressing in a ‘everyone is an
intolerant prick’ kind of way. It also points out that even pricks can do
good things. Its also a well shot and written film. If you dont recognise a
part of youself in at least one of the characters, you arent human. Go see
it, laugh, cry, despair .. and think a bit about the direction this country
seems to be taking.
This is an absolutely hilarious movie. Imagine Capone mixed with Pulp
Fiction with some of the effects from the matrix … with the humour of
drunken master thrown in, and you are getting pretty close. Definitely the
funniest film I have seen in quite a while.
Don’t get put off by the reviews, who incidentally all seemed to like it but
seemed to be unable to describe it without using ‘New Age’. There are a few
things wrong with this movie, but for the most part its a pretty good
introduction to the questions that have been re-asked since the pursuit of
the discipline of quantum physics. One of the problems is that the people
involved seem to think they are new questions, and that they may have new
answers .. I believe that they have been asked and answered multiple times
before, but you’ll have to see the movie and judge for yourself.
Its been said before, but please please please if there is a God don’t let George Lucas ever write any dialogue ever again. Seriously.
The effects were great, the soundtrack was excellent, the plot was iffy and the dialogue was positively awful. DragonballZ has better dialogue and most of that is just ‘heeaawrghh’ and ‘gnnnooargh’. Best of the three new movies, but could have been so much better
