Often when I'm watching a film I find myself thinking, "They could have got a fitter bird". Not this time. Ana de Armas is just delightful. This films portrays many bad possibilities for the future but if having a digital girlfriend that looks like her is one of them, fucking sign me up.
I watched this with my wife because she said she wanted to see something funny. She said everything I watch is always miserable and depressive, so I told her life was miserable and depressive and really, when you think about it, deep down, what's the fucking point of it all? I mean, really? The world is fucked and the only way to truly feel connected to this shit life is to ferment yourself in amongst the sadness and melancholy. She had no reply.
If you like films involving car chases, bank robberies, car chases, indestructible baddies and car chases, then you'll really like this. It goes a bit ridiculous at the end, if I'm being honest, but that's what people want nowadays, I suppose. Not me, I'm getting old and anything slightly unrealistic winds me up. Still, entertaining enough.
A bunch of attractive young astronauts find alien life in space and bring it on board their ship to study it... Yep, you know where this is going, don't you? Despite it being one of Hollywood's most predictably story lines, this does a brilliant job of delivering and includes some of the best zero gravity deaths you're likely to see.
This is about the impact of the Internet in today's world, how we got here and what may come in the future. Society, appliances and people rely on the Internet nowadays & this covers a few snapshots of what that means to us now and in the future.
This is the film based on the Cluedo board game, and is - being brutally honest - pretty shit compared to what's about today. However, with that comes a certain charm. I loved it as a kid and Tim Currie is brilliant. It's also got an element of genuine mystery to it, some excellent comedy moments, a unique ending and, best of all, one of the characters is a fit maid with massive tits.
I got called all sorts by my Alien-obsessed friends because I just said this was OK. Just because something is set in the Alien universe doesn't automatically make it amazing. It's just another space film with weird creatures that want to eat your face. I would watch anything in which Fassbender plays David though. He's brilliantly cast and does an exceptional job.
Sure this is a bit like the other Alien films - xenomorphs against humans and synthetics - but it's also a bit like Pandorum and Sunshine and many other space craft based films. I've probably seen too many of them, to be honest, as there's very little originality left in them for me. I loved the first hour or so but then it got a bit samey and I figured out what was going to happen far sooner than I should have. Worth a watch, definitely, but not a patch on the originals.
This is about how politicians, corporations and bankers have played us - and each other - using mathematical models, psychology and propaganda to create an illusion of freedom based on our individual selfish desires which we have been coerced into complying with. Rather than greater freedom, the outcome has instead been greater control of the masses and more wealth for the very rich. It's an incredibly clever piece of work but what else would you expect from Adam Curtis? He's a fucking genius.
Pretty strange way to conduct a documentary, this. They basically ask local actors and actresses what they think of the case. It's more about the morbid curiosity that we all have for murders rather than this particular case. In that sense, though, it's fairly interesting.
