  • District B13 2004

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Apr, 2014 6

    I am quite certain that I have just discovered my favourite action film. It has story like the Raid should have had, it has chases like nobody's business, and I could never take my eyes off the two protagonists, even when I tried. Sure it suffers a few of the genre's shortcomings, but it makes up for it in every department.

    Could the lead look any more like Ted Mosby?

    I probably shouldn't watch the next one within minutes. I…

  • K-PAX 2001

    Added 11

    I gave this film 1 star as a punishment rather than leave it unrated, all because it is obviously a remake or if not that then a re-imagining of Man Facing Southeast, and yet there is no credit at all anywhere in the film to indicate this. In fact, the makers of the film expressly denied having ever heard of Man Facing Southeast. With such an original story, that is highly unlikely. There is very little that I find more disgusting than stealing like this. All they had to do was add a credit.

    ★★ Watched 06 Feb, 2013 85

It won the TIFF Audience Award. It was supposed to have great characters. Cooper and Lawrence were supposed to have given wonderful performances. DeNiro, it was said, was back. Jackie Weaver, wait, was she in this?

    The film I saw was bland and boring. I…

  • The Thin Red Line 1998

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 01 Jul, 2012 33

    I heard people talk about immortality,
    but I ain't seen it.
    l wondered how it'd be when l died.
    What it'd be like to know that this breath now
    was the last one you was ever gonna draw.
    l just hope l can meet it the same way she did.
    With the same... calm.
    Cos that's where it's hidden -
    the immortality l hadn't seen.

    What's it like to be lying in the middle of an unfamiliar jungle with birds…
