    Unusual Australian drama which is basically a sort of post apocalyptic western. The film is set in an Australia which has collapsed, leaving wondering nomads scattered across a violent landscape. Guy Pearce is pretty good and stuttering Robert Pattinson is pretty bad - it has atmosphere, it has some good moments but it never really gets going and seems to be trying the usual just for the sake of it.

    I watched this for the following reasons - A boxing film. Set in prison. Written and directed by Walter Hill. It's a real shame, there are elements of Hill's script which work well, if he was younger it might have come together - But after his iffy 90s period ("Trespass" is good, "Last Man Standing" is okay, "Wild Bill" not so good), it all seems a bit stale. Walter Hill is a great American writer and director, and he said he always wanted to make a boxing film, this one just came too late in his career.

    Manipulative, boring, emotionally simplistic drama directed by Steven Spielberg. The film is way too long, as usual with directors like Spielberg, he thinks he is making an epic for the sake of making an epic so it's very long winded. I'm something of an animal lover, but i gotta be honest, i didn't give a fuck about this fella or his horse.
