Face/Off is like that mental dude in the pub.
You always try and avoid him. But then one day, when your bored, you engage him in conversation and he tells you, THE GREATEST, AND MOST EXCITING STORY YOU HAVE EVER HEARD.
And from that moment on you will always give a sly wink and nod off appreciation in his general direction.
Ok, so it basically a third TOTAL BOLLOCKS..
..but it does nothing more than make The Shining even scarier, even more genius, and an even bigger masterpiece than I first thought.
If that were possible.
It's hard not to imagine Stanley Kubrick watching this and pissing his pants.
If he weren't dead of course.
At 98 minutes, this is my dream length of movie. I have said it all my life.
After leaving this screening, and using the facilities, I could quite easily have jumped straight back in to watch the whole movie again. That doesn't happen to me often.
Stoker is phenomenal.

Sam Mendes proves his Bond making credentials, and confirms his excellent film making credentials.
Skyfall certainly is an excellent film. The best Bond film in 48 years. This is a proper spy film, and James Bond, as a character is a proper spy.
As a Bond fan this film pleased me in every way. You have to hand it to the film makers, it takes massive balls to put a 4 minute title sequence 10 minutes into a massive film…
