White Noise

Sadly Lacking

(Edit) 10/01/2006

On the face of it this looked like it was going to be a decent enough film. As it turned out it was quite poor, depsite some interesting cinematography and the occasional spasm of suspense. The plot was full of holes and by the end I was staring at the ceiling quite a bit as the predictability factor kicked in. If you are a real horror buff you may get some value out of it but the flawed plot and over egged CGI graphics in the finale did for me,

Kung Fu Hustle

Good Effort

(Edit) 14/03/2006

An interesting film which draws on a rich tradition of kung fu cinematic history. It was enjoyable and my wife (who is not a battle hardened kung fu fan) thought it was good. Where this film fails for me is the annoying use of animation that descends into Roger Rabbit territory. Mixing martial arts, noble thoughts and ancient tradition with road runner chases and bulging cartoon feet didn't seem to gel.

If you're after a laugh along, kung fu comedy it's probably for you, not really suitable for kids due to the surprisingly violent bits, given the comic nature of the film.

If you liked this but didn't like the animation I recommend Drunken Master.

Uzak

A study of nothing in particular

(Edit) 19/04/2006

If you like minimalism, this is probabaly worth a watch, after all critics awarded it a clutch of awards at various film festivals.

I found it a tedious, rather dull insight into the lives of two turks shambling around a snowbound Istanbul. I could see where the awards came from as loneliness and boredom seeped from the screen. Taking the film as a study into the dreary minutiae of human existence, I think it hit the nail on the head.

Taking the film as a film i.e. thought provoking entertainment, it failed to entertain or provoke much thought, other than when it would end

Alexander

Alexander the grating

(Edit) 20/12/2005

A dire film, which was a complete waste of of the 2 hours I fought through before admitting defeat.

Terrible acting, a disjointed plot and some comical irish accents all made for a complete turkey. Be warned this film is truly attrocius. Oliver Stone should be embarrassed.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Surprisingly good

(Edit) 23/12/2005

A film about relationships starring Jim Carey. I think it's fair to say I was not looking forward to it.

It was actually a great film, one of those rare viewing experiences that really opens your mind.

Oldboy

Groundbreaking thriller

(Edit) 23/12/2005

I think this film goes into my all time top 5, for its originality, shocking plot and its quite disturbing depiction of the sheer bloody mindedness of human nature. It is quite graphically violent in places, but not excessively so as to divert from the plot.

The acting and direction is first class and as my first introduction to the work of Korean director Chan-wook Park I was extremely impressed.
