    Just watched Zombieland (2009) with a buddy. Rather cheesy movie that falls somewhere between ordinary zombie-flick and zombie-spoof. Some good humor and good casting though. I freaking love Woody Harrelson, and I find Emma Stone attractive in an unconventional way (haha, I notice how objectifying I'm being here, only noting the female cast for how they look, but sadly that's how commercial movies are made).

    Watched Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012) after that. Highly moving picture. Set in a near-future America where climate problems have began to show and a group of outcasts have built their village outside of the safe society. Visually stunning, values originality and emotion over glibness, and music and acting was nice too.

    Not too long ago I watched Hiroshima mon amour (1959) directed by Alain Resnais. Follows a French actress who has an affair with a Japanese man while she's in Hiroshima to film an anti-war movie. They share their differing perspectives on the war, and the story is told in a rather fragmented way. Also a visually stunning movie. The script is written by the great novelist Marguerite Duras (I highly recommend her novel L'amand for those who should be interested in that kind of thing), and the dialogue is very memorable, fragmented much like the film, and with Duras' characteristic pulsating use of repetitions. Emmanuelle Riva acts wonderfully in it I think, and she's actually still going strong having played lead in the oscar awarded Amour in 2012.

    Bad Words - "A spelling bee loser sets out to exact revenge by finding a loophole and attempting to win as an adult." Hilarious. Jason Bateman was great in this, and the way he shamelessly delivers some of the jokes. Easily offended people will get easily offended watching this, so I suggest giving it a skip. Otherwise enjoy, lol...

    Drink (2014) (short)

    (It's on YouTube)

    "...a sci-fi cautionary tale that follows Alice and her two sons, Clint and Billy, as they flee their home in the middle of the night."

    Some soild clichés throughout, still very watchable. It lacked a little more context to make some of the character's actions more believable.

    Watched Black Rock with Kate Bosworth and Lake Bell about three women that go camp in a desert island and end being chased by hunters. Average only and extremely short.

    The Only Son / Hitori Musuko (1936) - Japanese film by Ozu.

    Very nice movie about a mother who sends her only son off to Tokyo to study and become "a great man".

    It's about a heist. So-so. The pre-heist part is too prolonged.

    It's a story that reflects reality, the harsh reality. No one in the universe ever became sureshs .... other than sureshs.

    It's probably a lesser known movie of Ozu (who is famous for Tokyo Story). However, i loved this movie (The Only Son).

    Oh, I still have it on VHS ;)

    As such, it's been a long, long time, and the 1st time I've seen it in HD.

    For those who haven't, it is worth your time.

    Finally got round to seeing Spectre.. what a let down!

    lt was an excercise in making the most tedious links possible to fit a "plot", relatively boring action scenes with awkward flirting thrown in here and there.

    They shot the places nicely, but the substance was nonexistent imo.

    Haha possibly! I'm English so I've grown up around them a lot, which might distort my view a bit.

    I wasn't a fan of the 90s Bond films, thought Casino Royale and Skyfall were incredible though. Spectre wasn't just bad by Bond standards, it was a pretty bad film in general imo.

    Mission Impossible Rogue Nation totally blew it out the water for me, now that's how to do a secret agent style thriller.

    Yeah same for me, I think it was the 4th one where they were infiltrating the Kremlin that I really liked, the Rogue Nation one this summer was probably even better.

    I actually saw that last week with my little sister, pretty good end to the franchise imo. She's read the books and thought it was accurate. I probably enjoyed the first two films more where it was all about the actual Hunger Games, but still, it definitely went out with a bang.

    Yeah they are a bit over the top, they don't pretend to be anything different though. The franchise is all about the impossible afterall! I thought the scene at the opera in Vienna was incredible.

    Saw 'Carol' and was disappointed to be honest.

    Yes it's well acted and makes a good stab at poignancy, but it has a veneer of pretensiouness which detracts from developing any real characterisation and sympathy for the two protagonists. A shame really but I think 'noir' is best left to the Europeans, especially the French.

    I watched "Crocodile Dundee" this weekend.

    It's showing it's age, if he'd grab people's crotches now, he'd leave the country as a registered sex offender.
