Fish Tank



great movie, and solid interpretation on the state of british youth. 10/10. Also the movie closed with the track "Life's a bitch" by Nas.

yeah this is where i watched it.

if you do plan to get interested in the director Andrea Arnold, don't bother with the movie 'Red Road'(also in netflix). Has a very high rating on rotten tomatoes and a solid rating on MetaCritic, so i can officially say the movie is overrated.

Night Hawks -- B/B-

In this practically forgotten 1981 thriller, Sly Stallone and Billy Dee Williams are NYC cops working for an INTERPOL created task force searching for an international terrorist played by Rutger Hauer in his American film debut. It was originally written as The French Connection III but Gene Hackman did not want to return to the role. Its a fairly gritty film. Hauer is excellent as a psychopathic terrorist and he steals nearly every scene he is in. There is some decent stunt work and Stallone refused to use a double for his action scenes. Billy Dee is great as always. Of note, Lindsy Wagner (the Bionic Woman) is also in the film as Hauer's cold blooded confidant.

Worth watching if you like mid 70s to mid 80s cop films from before they all turned into buddy comedies. Its also currently on NetFlix.

8/10

Pretty much loved everything about this flick with one real exception. The direction was great, the cinematography flawless and very creative (thought the elevator scene with the lighting and the beach scene were standouts), and the acting was minimalist but very effective IMO, felt almost like a silent movie for some stretches. Was the violence a bit gratuitous and excessive? Definitely. But it was fun as hell.

Also loved the soundtrack, gave the film a cool, stylish retro feel.

Only thing stopping me from giving it a 9 was the ending, could've been handled better but it wasn't terrible.

red road is also a good film and deserves to be seen.

her latest tho- wuthering heights looks ****ing SUBERB, im thinking her first masterpiece could be on the way. arnold btw is somewhat of a von trier discovery and i can see influences, and also tones of terrence malick about this trailer. epic teaser.

I have seen very good things about Wuthering Heights. I have read the book in high school, and if Arnold is able to use the same type of tone and feel as Fish Tank, i think it could be a very good film. Unfortunately we can't judge movies based on trailers.

as for Fassbender, i do agree. this guy is going to be something great the next 2-3 years. I can't wait for his upcoming film Shame by another great up and coming UK director Steve McQueen

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1723811/

sorry no official trailers for this movie.

The Fighter

Pretty much your average sports movie. Good performances by most of the cast it it was a compelling story. Not as great as it was hyped up to be tho.

7/10

Watched a few movies recently so here they is:


Confessions of a Gangster 5.5/10

Decent amount of twists, didn't overdo the action scenes and not very bloody. Thought it was too short and it could have had more to it, but as it stood, was a surprisingly good flick.


Kill The Irishman 6.25/10

An okay portrayal of the life of Danny Greene but a ton was left out. No replay value but was a good one. Hope that when the Kuklinski movie is made, it is more realistic than this was.


Setup 4/10

Waste of money and time. Only reason its a 4 instead of a 1 is because of Bruce Willis portraying a mob boss.


Lucky You 5/10

Okay flick. I've watched it a few times and the poker play in it actually seems somewhat realistic. Enjoyed the small part by Michael Shannon and the cameos from all of the pros.

Fish Tank

Really impressive film by Andrea Arnold. You can definitely tell she was influence by the Dogme movement and Lars. Some truly beautiful shots and interesting camera work. Fassbender was great and the female lead was alsoo very good. She had an uncanny resemblance and the same attitude as my brothers ex which was a little strange lol. Very, very good film.

9/10
