    The rate we are going it will be the only industry Vic has left by the end of the year so we'll all have to become AFL players. I'm going to reserve the team name The Fatbastards, we'll wear brown jumpers and shorts and our mascot will be a meat pie and beer can so we can get sponsorship from 4n20 and whichever beer we like. I'll sell David Williamson the rights and we'll talk about the movie in 2046 when the lockdowns end!

    I quote said Ignored Methber quite a bit so I must look like I'm talking smack sometimes.

    I re-watched Chopper last night. What a knock out performance from Eric Bana! It's a pretty quick, straight to the point film, but one that doesn't sanitize what Mark Brandon Read was all about. From what I've read about him he was a bull shit artist who embellished and exaggerated his involvement in crime. This was a great directorial debut from Andrew Dominik.

    Also Justin Kurzel's directorial debut Snowtown is another great Aussie film. One of the best true crime films I have ever seen. I cannot wait to see his latest film Nitram.

    I tried watching that a while back. I wasn't keen on it tbh. It almost kind of came across as psychedelic. I will get back to it eventually.

    My theory is that you watched it, then posted about it on the wrong alt.

    Saw this one myself and couldn't disagree more. Probably my favourite Guy Ritchie movie since Snatch. It didn't even feel much like a Guy Ritchie movie other than the cast featuring a few of his go-to guys (Statham, Eddie Marsan). It has a much more brooding tone than usual with a lot of expansive shots almost reminiscent of Michael Mann. Honestly kinda reminded me of Den of Thieves. Some of the filming techniques felt a bit weird though (eg random zoom-ins and zoom-outs for no reason).

    It's a shame that The Gentlemen and Wrath of Man couldn't have been merged into one project somehow, because what one lacks the other has and vice-versa. The Gentlemen had the colourful dialogue, better fleshed out characters and the Guy Ritchie signature style, whereas Wrath of Man had the nicer shots, the more interesting plot and the brooding atmosphere that gave all the action some gravitas.

    Fucking awesome to see Scott Eastwood finally do something in cinema half-memorable since he got called a "pussy" by his dad in Gran Torino.

    This film is like a painting. Malick is a genius!

    This film is terrible. So generic and boring.

    Quote - Dan Stubbs of NME gave the film five out of five stars, describing it as "convention-breaking" and "undeniably brilliant," though "very difficult to watch."

    I don't know what this guy was smoking.

    I saw Those Who Wish Me Dead last night.

    It looked interesting when I saw the trailer but unfortunately, the full movie does not hold up to that first impression.

    Angelina Jolie plays a traumatized smoke jumper in the forests of Montana. Assigned to a lonely out of the way spotting post, she's soon plunged into a life and death struggle when she stumbles across a young boy on the run from assassins out to kill him for what he might possibly know.

    What does he know? Well, thanks to that being pretty much a McGuffin for this movie, we don't really find out. But a lot of people are knocked off in the early part of the movie over it.

    Making her job harder, the assassins set the forest on fire meaning Jolie and the boy have to dodge bullets in one direction and an out of control blaze from the other direction.

    This had the potential to be an interesting movie but that potential was squandered by taking the first 40 minutes of the movie before Jolie and the boy even meet up, and then categorically refusing to provide any resolution to most of the loose ends of the story. What little resolution you do get still makes you feel like the filmmakers were just giving the middle finger to any viewer who plunked down their money expecting a finished story/script.

    I gave what I saw on the screen a 5 out of 10 on IMDB because most of what I saw was moderately enjoyable. But I wouldn't bother to watch this one ever again. And if I factored in the near total lack of caring to finish the story properly, I'd end up giving the movie a 1 out of 10 at best. Oh, and the story that appears in the original book source material sounds far more interesting than what they settled for with this movie's script.

    Wow, this was the most retarded film I've ever see. I can't remember the last time I've laughed so hard at a film. This scene probably doesn't even crack the top 10 for ridiculous moments

    Building up my Takeshi Kitano collection with the following. I already have Violent Cop, Boiling Point & Sonatine in a BFI set. I think I've also got his Zatoichi floating about somewhere.
