We watched this movie tonight. It wasn’t the first time either of us had seen
it but we could only remember the plot outline. I’m glad we got it out
again, its a great film kinda slow but very good nonetheless.
Suprisingly not complete bollocks. We were just going to watch a movie
because we were tired of walking around, and this was all that was on. It
was far less formulaic than I thought it would be, it was really quite
My parents recommended this to me when we were fixing the fence that the
wind had trashed. Im glad I got it out, a great film that explores the
absurdities of modern day warfare. Set in the bosnian conflict it follows
the story of 3 soldiers trapped in no mans land, 2 bosnians and a serb. And
the completely ineffective and hamstrung UN. Depressing as are all films
exploring the depths of human stupidity, but a great film nonetheless.
So im done watching movies today, I now have some rugby games, a league
game, and a pile of Olympics to watch.
A thoroughly excellent film. Even though you know the ending its
spellbinding and compelling watching. The scenery is magnificent, and I
really like the camera angles. The fact that its a true story makes it even
more amazing. Well worth seeing on a big screen.
We saw this in Brisbane, it was pants, complete pants. Lots of holes in the
plot and the continuity was horrible. Probably about the worst De Niro film
I have ever seen.
Ok, I just watched Donnie Darko .. and im puzzled by two things, well a lot
more than two things, but two main things.
- What the hell was that all about?
- Why did I like it so much?
Well its shite, shite with good special effects, but shite nonetheless.
I learnt two things, NZ will survive the next ice age, and we are a third
world country apparently.
The american’s illegally crossing into Mexico was kind of funny … but what
the hell was the wolf bit?? Sometimes you get the impression that script
writers have a mad idea at 3am .. and say “I know, this movie needs badly
computer generated wolves .. yeah, that’ll be wicked”. There’s a job vacancy
there, someone to just say “OI no, thats a ridiculous idea, go get some
sleep and try again tomorrow”
