Everything about the film is amazing, right up until the end.. The ending of this film depressed me for weeks, maybe even a month after watching it.. When a film can do that, somebody got something right.
Epic. Thats really the only way to describe this. Surely one of the great man films of all time. I dont care that its historically inaccurate, I dont care that there was never a Maximus, I couldnt give a shit that mainly the Romans where a bunch of utter cunts, sure they spoke Latin and invaded everyone but fuck me they know how to do a decent story :-) If your not off your seat cheering for Maximus at the end on the first watch though there is something seriously wrong with you.
I spent a good portion of my life as a child with my face covered in mud, so did we all I hear you say, well actually you would be wrong, I'm talking thick-applied-with-2-fingers style mud and for that I have this film to thank. All other movies with the Predator pale into insignificance compared to this, the original.
"A building is a symbol, as is the act of destroying it. Symbols are given power by people. A symbol, in and of itself is powerless, but with enough people behind it, blowing up a building can change the world."
The Shawshank Redemption is the perfect movie. Frank Darabont's brilliantly turned Stephen King's novella into the greatest movie ever made. Andy Dufresne was a successful banker who was charged with the murder of his wife and her lover. He is sentenced to life in prison for each of the murders. In prison he meets a man named Red, who happens to be the only guilty man in Shawshank prison. His friendship with Andy and the lessons they learn together help make this movie the classic that it is.
Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant..I dont think I've ever met anyone who didn't like this movie..I wouldn't want to be there friend anyway!!
Now this is just an opinion, Taken is what the Bourne series should have been!!!
Started me on the brown this film don't regret watchin it Begbie is joint hardest person in a film ever (Don Logan Sexy Beast).
Oh well, £18.50 this cost for me and me bird to go and see and yano what, it was worth every muther fuckin penny.. Truly amazing cinema experience, bit of a sore arse but didn't get bored for one min.. Some of the 3D scenes are just incredible.. A must see, worth the extra for the 3D too..
Went the pictures twice to see this because its that good.
