Sorry revival ... forgot to update as I watched things..

So I watched Drive last week .. brilliant, story is simple but that's ok because characters are richly developed (majority wise). Ryan Gosling gives a brilliant performance portraying the nuances of his character perfectly!

On top of this is an amazingly well directed piece brilliant shots where each scene feels pretty awesome with an (if you like this kind of music) amazing soundtrack that perfectly plays to each scene.

Pretty much I can't imagine something of a pretty normal plot (though maybe I overstate that .. it isn't exactly completely predictable so don't think that) coming out as well as this did so please go watch it!

I would say don't watch the trailer though - just watch it.. I watched the trailer after and feel it could give the wrong impression or give too much away.

9/10

Also will be watching Tinker tailor soldier spy soon as well as Red State.

I have now watched all the Texas Chainsaw Massacres, apart from the prequel. (I'm also beginning to think I'm nearing being able to say I've watched every horror film worth watching. XD)

They're not too bad, my main complaint is that all of the sequels seem to deliberately not acknowledge that the other sequels existed. The remake was pretty good too!

Speaking of horror movies; I watched 28 Days Later the other week. Christopher Eccleston was fantawtic in it and the plot was actually alright. I liked the more original take on zombies, that was good. Cillian Murphy was absolutely amazing in it, he's one of my most favourite actors. Batman Begins does him no justice (and I'd just like to say, that was a godawful movie).

9/10

I've watched so many films in the past couple of weeks, yet I can't name any of them! But since i'm postiing i'll mention a film I recently re-watched on DvD.

Thor! Awesome film, awesome characters and fairly decent storyline. Ant Hopkins and the guy that played Thor, very very good acting right there!

I did like Thor a lot .. though I actually really enjoyed Captain America a lot more!

@Alice 28 days later is class I actually just bought it on dvd a week or so ago as part of a Danny Boyle collection should rewatch at some point soon.

@Han ... not seen the remake yet I did hear it was pretty good though?

Cpt America was okay, but I kinda got bored about half way through, so for nearly an hour of the film I was a bit like ugh.

On another note, The Avengers is out in 2012. This is one film I simply CANNOT wait to see!

I watched Tinker Tailor the other day... Lost the plot about 20 minutes in and didn't manage to pick it up by the end. I don't know whether I'm slow or if it is really hard to follow, but either way I ended up not enjoying it at all because I had no idea what was happening. It's only saving point for me was the wonderful cast.

Hocus Pocus as its awesum and i wanted to make sure my Sarah Sanderson cosplay was looking correctly

@Fara: Yeah the remake is great! It definitely does the original justice, although it is fairly different storyline wise. It's also got R. Lee Ermey in it, the guy who plays the Drill Sergeant in Full Metal Jacket? Pretty awesome!

Now if only I could get a chance to watch the third Ip Man film already!

I struggled with this film as well - the character interactions are superb, like you say, the cast were great. But I did struggle to follow Smiley's train of thought and I had to have some things explained to me after the film which made everything fall into place. I felt the jumping around in the time sequence (i.e. the Christmas party flashbacks) didn't help with this. Once I understood the plot I decided that the film was good and I had enjoyed it, but I think my enjoyment would have been greater if I had had that understanding *during* the film. My boyfriend managed a lot better with it, in that he could follow Smiley's train of thought and the only thing he was kept guessing on was the actual identity of the mole from the suspects who were still in the picture, which I think was what the film was aiming for. This makes sense to me because he got annoyed with BBC's Sherlock adaptation that was on last year because he was figuring things out before on-screen Sherlock did, whereas I was just about able to keep up to speed, not ahead.

So I think a lot of the enjoyment of the film comes from whether you're able to keep up with the plot or not, and I think you need to have a particular way of thinking to be able to 'get' what Smiley's thinking and where he's going on it. I think I'd like to read John Le Carre's book and then watch the film again on DVD - then I can enjoy it properly!

Danny Boyle is one of my favourite directors! Just about all my favourite movies are directed by him :3

Confessions - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1590089/

AMAZING, watched it yesterday and i cannot belive how good it is. A School teacher tells a class on there last day that 2 of the students killed her daughter, And her revenge is bitter sweet, Twisted and so deep!

Cant recommend this film enough for people who like dark Korean films.

He is scraping into my favourite director list, I do generally love most of his films!

Have to say my favourite directors are; David Fincher, David Lynch (crazy bastard ) and Ridley Scott.

So I watched Red State last week ... now if you know of have watched other works by Kevin Smith you will probably have a good idea of what it will be like.

If you enjoyed his other works like I did you def find Red State enjoyable for a lot of the dialogue and set of the scenes.

How ever .. I personally still thought it was a bad film overall due to a nature of jumping from comedic dialogue to attempted hard line dialogue trying to make a message ... also ... too many messages trying to be made. It ended up feeling a little wishy washy in terms of what it wanted to convey.

8/10 for the sheer fact it is still enjoyable in its own little kevin smith fucked up way.
