the most unrelentingly brutal and bleak film i've seen in a LONG time.
i really liked it.
Have you seen Children of Men? That was good.
Haven't seen either of the 28...films yet.
i missed children of men in the cinema so i'm waiting till it gets cheaper on DVD.
cartoon version of 1984 written and voiced by hannah spearrit of sclub7 fame, guest voice darren day > children of men
cartoon version of 1984 written and voiced by hannah spearrit of sclub7 fame, guest voice darren day would be >>>>>>> everything, ever.
What's wrong with CoM (as hipster cinema goers call it)?
interesting concept but could have been done much much better. i saw it a while ago and have now forgotten my reasons. i need to watch it again.
I liked it a lot. Could have done with less Michael Caine though.
couldn't do with less Michael Caine? Other than St. Winnifred's Home For Inexplicably Popular 'Actors'
that couldn't do with less Michael Caine is a massive Michael Caine pie.
the best bleak portrayal of the near future, as a film miles better than 28 days later, havent seen 28 weeks yet though so cant compare
and 28 weeks later is worse.
That's an hour and a half of miserable ending.
i've always avoided watching that for that very reason..
It made me depressed for about a week.
It's a bleak, working class kitchen sink drama with no hope of escape for its characters. Then nuclear war breaks out.
that the screaming during the amputation of limbs without anaesthetic counts as a form of catharsis I suppose.
is making me want to watch the entire Qatsi trilogy back to back
Was clearly a bunch of filthy proles who cant family plan deciding whether its safe to eat a dead sheep in a radioactive winter. Which it is. They should have followed the governments advice. Having more nuclear weapons prevented that ever happening and you all know it. Rule Britannia!
and the best bits are on YouTube, should you feel the urge to become suicidal and grateful that you can't remember the early 80s).
are projecting bits of threads onto screens behind them at the moment
they've been doing it for a while. during their show at ULU last year, i genuinely felt like the world was ending.
although I think Children of Men was better, and
I thought the thing with Carlisle's character was pretty unbelievable.
I really liked it. I was worried I wouldn't understand it having not seen the first one but it wasn't a problem. It was both bleak and hugely entertaining, not to mention pretty fucking scary.
i was stood next to the girl from it at vauxhall bus station this morning. she got on a bus heading towards south kensington!!!!!
i'm at least 75% sure it was her..
