    It would seem not enough people in your life has told you this, so allow me, James; fuck you.

    Steven Anthony Lawrence. I could not shake off the resemblance, and it occupied my mind to the extent that the film itself was rendered meaningless.

    Kronprinsen 1979

    ★★★★ Watched 06 Oct, 2015

    This film is not a film to put on when you just feel like switching off after a long day's work. Not that you'd find it anywhere, mind you. I was lucky enough to get to go to a special 35mm screening introduced by the living legend that is Per Haddal (think Roger Ebert, if Oslo were Chicago, and you get the gist).

    It's a film that effectively meant all of director Pål Bang-Hansen's future efforts to get films funded…

  • The Sentinel

    The Sentinel 1977

    ★★★½ Watched 25 Sep, 2015

    I'm in the process of moving into a new flat. Not a wise choice to watch this right now. Having second thoughts about this move, haha. Need to check out who lives at the top, that's for damn sure.

    I think I picked this film a bit randomly, and was more and more dumbfounded as one famous name after the other came up at my screen during the opening credits. "How is this not more well known?" I asked myself.…

  • Cool Hand Luke

    Cool Hand Luke 1967

    ★★★★½ Watched 18 Sep, 2015 2

    Growing up as I did in the 80s and 90s, this film is closely connected in my mind to Guns 'n' Roses' Civil War (though this was a first time watch), but my mind drifted towards Steady Rollin' by Two Gallants after the end credits. Mainly this part:
    "Well I come from the old time baby,
    too late for you to save me.
    If I remain then I'm to blame."

    I'll be back with more, so Zap won't stab me, but for now, I'll just say that Conrad Hall bossed it.

    Nothing special, but Lindsay Duncan is smokin' hot.

    My name is bag. Sleazebag.
    Going through the Bonds chronologically, it's "funny" to see how this sex maniac with little regard for human life, his own or his conquests, became such an icon back in the 60s (and every decade after). And how much I'd forgotten about these films.
    Here he stumbles through, amazingly remains more or less unharmed, all the while perving on every single female bum he encounters, forgetting that he is actually in quite life threatening situations.…
