Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me -- 8/10

Not Lynch's best, but still a bloody good film.

Went to see Silent Hill on Friday. It was alright. There was a bit too much plot exposition for my liking, which is to say it lacked the sort of ambiguity that contributed to the game's atmosphere - one of the main reasons it was so frightening was precisely the fact that you never quite knew what the hell was going on. I was also disappointed by the use of gore; the games didn't need gore to be scary, they went solely by the strength of their atmosphere. That, and Pyramid Head's appearance struck me as rather gimmicky - he was only really there as a nudge and a wink to the fans, whereas in SH2, he was virtually a central character.

I happen to think that the film was good, quite good, up until the point where they introduced all these secondary characters, and then it turned slightly haywire. Heck, they even explained where the sirens came from.

The Vanishing.

The original Dutch version, not the crappy Hollywood remake. Bloody excellent film.

I finally saw V for Vendetta today - what a good film!  So deftly topical in today's fascistic political environment.

Oh aye.

Citizen Kane

What can I say? An absolute classic.

Hey, anybody see Silent Hill? I know it's based on a video game, but the guy who directed it directed Brotherhood of the Wolf a few years ago and he's known for atmosphere, which I think is good. I haven't seen it. It will be out toward the end of the month and if it's any good I'm going to get it. I know it won't appeal much to the Lady of the House, so I wanna be reasonably sure it's good before I try to make time for it. Smiley

Yep, seen it. I'm a huge fan of the video games and I think Gans did a fairly good of getting the atmosphere across. But it wasn't scary enough in my opinion. There are some good moments, but it's nowhere near as intense as the games (especially 1 and 2, which are absolute masterpieces). Still, worth watching IMO.

Wow. Just... wow. This is the closest depiction to hell I've ever seen on film.

"again" doesn't count.

Hwal, Korean original with German subtitles.

That's by the same guy as Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring isn't it? Any good?
I liked it.

3 Iron is my favourite Kim Ki Duk film (10 out of 10 masterpiece IMHO), but Bad Guy is almost as good.

I got to admit to not having seen any before this one. I was aware of the name, and intended to see one sometime... so now I did.

I recommend virtually all of his films. Well, at least from the ones I've seen.

Just watched "Real Fiction" by Kim Ki-Duk. Very good film. A revenge fantasy is just what I needed after such a sh**tty day.

Address Unknown by Kim Ki-Duk

Not the most depressing movie I've ever seen, but close. Plenty of characters I'd like to whack upside the head, but then I think that was the point of the film.

Cars *embarassed* (with my girl-friend's younger siblings). It was ok for a children's movie, but very, very klichéed.

Really? Everyone I've spoken to who's seen it says it's really good. I mean, sure it's a clichéd, but virtually all commercial movies are. I generally like Pixar.

United 93. If you're not moved by this film, no matter where you come from, you may not have a heart.

I agree with that. It's an extremely harrowing film.
