(nl) wrote: Another perfect example of how a film - regardless of it's budget can still be hugely effective if the story is told well. It's a pretty simple tale about a guy called Chris returning home to the town that he left behind, still tormented by the guilt that drove him away. His best friend Shifty has chosen a potentially destructive life path, and over the course of the day they attempt to re connect and face up to their problems, both past and present. Both Daniel Mays and Riz Ahmed are astonishingly good in this film. The subtlety of their relationship is believable and they really make you care about them. Jason Flemyng is suitably gruff as the local hood, and it's here that Chris has the chance to prove his loyalty to Shifty, where he once failed. Clearly shot on the cheap, this is one of the best British films I have seen in the past few years. Will be keeping an eye on all involved.

But I guess it's easy for gay teenage gangsters to say "I love you" when their sugar daddy is buying their mother a refrigerator and every thing else they want.

I have not seen Invasion of the Body Snatchers and to me the movie was at least entreating. Kind of dumb, but watchable. Kidman was hot, which is a bonus... If I can make a bad off color joke. I would invade her body's snatch. lol

(kr) wrote: Fish-outta-water tale as a trio of urban yuppies venture out West to ultimately reevaluate their lacklustre lives. I came in set to disparage the proceedings simply because of the writers (Ganz and Mandel) but was pleasantly surprised with the unusual restraint shown. Should Palance have won the Best Supporting Oscar for this? No. Hollywood simply slipped him his Lifetime Achievement under the table, but he does provide the pungent illusion of what we, the audience, might consider the Ol'West to've been like. Not bad.

(jp) wrote: The first act (depending on which version you see, 'A Drop of Water') is one my favorite ghost stories committed to film. The narration linking (the American version) together is pretty atrocious and the stories get progressively weaker, but the vivid colors and imagery that Mario Bava utilizes is so effective and striking that it's hard not to be pleased by the film's visual palette.
(it) wrote: I have to be honest I do find Richard Beymer a bit wet as Tony and to the modern audience she of the Beatnik 1950's slang terminology does sound very dated but West Side Story is still one of the best movie adaptations of a musical going. The Leonard Bernstein score is punchy, at times soaringly beautiful and highly evocative and coupled with the gaudy, colourful direction of Robert Wise the whole movie is a visual treat. A integral part of the success of this movie is Jerome Robbins choreography which is balletic and memorably dramatic. The dancers whirl around in a Technicolor blaze of energy that is filled with energy and life. This is seen at it's best when the Puerto Rican's gather on the rooftop of their tenement building and perform "America". Of the cast, Rita Moreno has always stood out for me. She is fabulous as the proud, flamboyant Anita and easily eclipses the more demure Maria played by Natalie Wood. George Chakiris may look as though he's been crested but dances like a demon and I'd actually forgotten just how good Russ Tamblyn is as Riff. The classic songs come thick and fast from the word go. Songs such as Tonight, Maria, I feel Pretty, Somewhere and Jet Song are so familiar and the action moves effortlessly from one to another. This movie rightly won a shed-load of Oscars and has gone on to be regarded as one of the finest examples of the movie musical genre.
