9.2 on IMDB? Get absolutely fucked. These have definitely spent a large portion of their marketing budget on paying Indian bot farms to give this a 10 rating on IMDB. Fudged beyond belief.
And the award for most realastic war film ever goes to... Yeah, you guessed it. Even more so than Saving Private Ryan, I'd say. It'll probably win all the awards. Like, all of them. Academy Award for Best Picture included. And Best Cinematography. And fucking loads of others. Because it is an exceptional film. It grabbed me by the balls from the get go and didn't let up until the triumphant climax, which, let's be honest, whenever someone touches your balls, is the best possible outcome.
This is about the report that was compiled on the post-911 practices of the CIA in capturing and torturing anyone with a tinge of brown in them. As you can imagine, the treatment of those prisoners was horrendous and the report proved that not only were their methods ghastly but they were also largely ineffective. Turns out that if someone is waterboarding you, you'll tell them anything just to make them stop, even if it's a lie. At least once it was all out in the open, those responsible could suffer the full force of the law for their crimes, right?
I'm a great believer in the mantra that if you want something doing properly, you have to do it yourself. It's one of the many personality flaws that my dad passed on to me; that other people, ultimately, are useless. So thanks, Dad, I suppose. Jim Cummings - the writer, director and lead part of this film - clearly feels the same way. I'm a little surprised he didn't just don a wig and play all the female parts too. Despite that all sounding terribly bleak, it's very funny. This is my sort of jam. Bravo, Jim Cummings.
The moral to this story is to never get divorced. Actually, go one better and don't even get married in the first place. You know what women are like. Parts are laugh out loud funny and other parts are crushingly sad. Laura Dern steals the show and I hope she gets an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress.
This is a documentary about the story of twin boys in which one of them has a massive car crash and forgets his entire life up to that point. Fortunately his brother reminds him about their good life, their amazing childhood and their wonderfully attentive parents. Sadly it's all a lie and if you want the sordid details, you'll have to watch it.
OK, well, this is officially off its tits. Original though, which I'm always banging on about, aren't I? Not sure I'd recommend it to anyone but I thought it was alright.
Did you know Americans played a huge part in drugs being smuggled into the USA from Colombia during the 80s? I mean, it's not like there's been a fucking million films made about it, has there? No, there's been more than that and I am fucking sick to death of them. They all tell the same story just with the focus being on someone new. This time, on one of the undercover agents. It was alright, I suppose, but I've had e-fucking-nough of them now. Blow is - still - easily the best.
This is about a time when racism was even more rife in America than it is today. I know that's hard to believe, but it's true. Black folk had to use the outside toilet for fuck's sake. I can appreciate the (true) story and appreciate the struggle that black people suffered at that time, but it's a fairly average watch and I feel it only garnered such praise upon release for the topics it covered.
This is about addiction and why doing crystal meth is highly advised against. It will fuck you up, yo. As will many other drugs. Hence why your parents bang on about why you shouldn't ever try them. But let's be honest, we do don't we? I mean, not the heavy ones, but the others. If you decide it'll be a laugh to try heroin, crack or crystal meth, then you're a fucking idiot and you deserve everything you get.
