  • The Others

    The Others 2001

    ★★★ Rewatched 13 Dec, 2014

    Worth a look, but if you want to see a great adaptation of Henry James' infamous and oft referenced story 'The Turn of the Screw', rather than just an okay one, then I'd point you in the direction of Jack Clayton's The Innocents.

  • Life Is Beautiful

    Life Is Beautiful 1997

    ½ Watched 13 Dec, 2014 6

    This film's supposed charm and endearing nature was completely lost on me, of which the grating and unrelentingly annoying nature of Benigni's contrived character played no small part.

    I'm the first to admit that saccharin sentimentalism rarely appeals to me (especially when ingrained with supposed 'cute' comedy), however I actually found this film to be quite crass and crude in its handling of the subject matter. Maybe I missed the joke where the holocaust is supposed to be considered a big fun game though...

    Why I love this film so much:

    - The Bat Copter!
    - Bitch-slapping an exploding shark
    - Dodgy Irish accented cop
    - 'That' theme tune
    - The Bat Boat!
    - The nobility of a suicidal porpoise (!)
    - A ball point banana
    - Jet-pack umbrellas
    - "Bless my dust pan!" & "Holy Halloween!"
    - 'Dehydrated' pirates.
    - "Some days you just can't get rid of a bomb!"
    - 'Re-hydrated' pirates
    - The Bat Cycle!
    - Cat in a dinghy
    - Umbrella/sword duel atop a submarine
    - Bat Centrifuge!
    - Bat ropes!

    In summary: Forget Nolan's films; watch this instead.

    Before they added all the slo-mo, this was apparently a 6 minute music video.
