The Limey (1999) - 8/10. Great photography of US west coast, LA and Big Sur area. A satisfying revenge thriller. The outcome is never in doubt, but it's an enjoyable journey. Using clips from Terence Stamp's performance in Poor Cow from the 1960s, to evoke his character's past, was really effective.

The Chaser (Korean) 8.5/10

 

Another excellent Korean film- recommend to anyone who has interest in this genre.

 

If you haven't seen it yet check out The Yellow Sea by the director of The Chaser. It's a great film.

That Awkward Moment: 3/10 (and that's being kind; avoid it).

Out of the furnace: 4/10. Very violent.

The Armstrong Lie: 6/10. A bit boring after a while but still revelatory.

Lone survivor: 5/10. Moral dilemmas explored passably well.

I Frankenstein: 8/10. By far the best of the bunch, although not in the least resembling RLS's book!

Elysium - 5/10 - A decent idea executed poorly, very slow paced with poor performances from some good actors.

 

The Lone Ranger - 8/10 - Actually really enjoyed this film, didnt expect to with all the bad reviews. Had a good story with some good comedic moments. And as usual you cant really fault Jonny Depp

Oldboy (the Korean original) - A classic although not perfect. 8.5/10.

 

I've not watched it in a few years and I'd forgotten some of the more surreal bits of it.

The Counselor. 1/10...pants with a P.

 

The 1 is for the cast/director, & the presumption that because of said cast/director, the film would be worth watching.

 

Don't bother. We were lost within 10 mins, trying to figure out the connection between said cast/storyline. The pointless philosophical mumblings leave an even bigger question mark.

 

Absolute drivel.

 

The Butterfly Effect on the other hand. 10/10.

Gibbon I loved this film because it gave you a real sense of being on the journey with him, cold , lost, no money and hungry. The violence is brutal/ not glamorised, which adds to the task he is given. At least as good as Chaser.
