  • Children of Men 2006

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 14 Sep, 2014

    Children Of Men is terrifying. It's a Science Fiction, nightmare vision of a world in flames. A vision of Totalitarian Governments, racial hatred, societal injustice and homegrown terrorist groups. The really scary thing is that it's a vision that could be just around the corner.

    Ok i'm being melodramatic, but lets be honest in the 8 years since Children of Men was released we have seen a lot of crazy stuff that could(in an extreme situation) lead to the kind…

    The Good:-

    Mr T has spent his Fistfull of Dollars well. Django Unchained looks fabulous, sounds fantastic and is performed with all the vim and zip you would expect from the Director of Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown. The Script is very good and manages to balance riotous laughs and riotous violence in the way only QT can. There are some great blink and you miss them cameos(now de riguer for a Tarantino movie but still fun). Bruce Dern pops…
