Monster... hmm, wasn't so fussed. Seemed a bit like a tv movie, saved only by a nice performance from Charlize.
I watched The Grudge last night. Some nice eerie scenes, but (as usual) copped out a lot at the end. The strange dream logic of Far Eastern films doesn't translate so well to US remakes, but they gave it a fair go, I suppose.
Caught Man on Fire last week. Solid stuff, very stylish.
Eagerly awaiting The Life Aquatic... Off to see Oceans 12 tomorrow but I'm not expecting too much from that.
And yes... Bubba Ho Tep is great. Apparently, there's talk of a sequel... Bubba Nosferatu ;D
Well I watched 'The Trail Of The Pink Panther' last night, and was disappointed to discover that it looks like Peter Sellers must've died during the filming, so 2/3 of it is a complete cutting room hatchet job of library footage and mock 'interviews' with the characters, all reminiscing about Clouseau's life in a remarkably "will this do?" fashion. Disappointo!
hey guys i just got back from Egypt ;D (i put lsb flyers in a few of the in-flight magazines of random seets for a bit of lsb coverage aswell)
anyhoo the most resent films i hav watched have been, the green mile (great film, with an awsome cast), english man who went up a hill and came down a mountin (quite clever british film, with hugh grant, *sigh* not my usual cup of tea but not bad) and fight club (i love this film ;D )
If I could add my intellectual twopenneth, I watched the highbrow conjoined twins comedy 'Stuck On You' the other night and laughed like a drain, and my next film will be 'Twin Dragons', in which Jackie Chan plays both lead roles - talk about guaranteed entertainment for a fool like me
In other news, I recently watched the anime classic 'Perfect Blue', which blew my tiny little mind, some more episodes of Neon Genesis - Evangelion, which also blew my tiny little stegosaurus-tail brain, and I am currently hotly anticipating the UK release of 'Steamboy', which will kick arse.
