Tonight, Channel4, 10pm.
shame everyones seen it about a million billion times
so I'll be watching again.
My favourite bit is when the stoned hippy girl picks up the enormous machine gun and lets fly
movie when i saw it the first time in the cinema, but i watch it these days and its really really awful. I cant stand that mockney gangster comedy and jokes like 'your fat and you look as though you should be'
i remember at uni, middle class wankers from places like rickmansworth going around calling each other 'nick the greek'...and saying 'you avin a bubble aint ya', or 'if you do that again you wish you hadnt'
I went through a period of not liking it but then watched it again with my girlfriend as she'd never seen it, and it was great.
...lock stock or snatch?
would be 'sexy beast' or 'the long good friday'....or 'get carter'
seemed like a snatch for older people. & snatch was good, but it was essentially the same dynamics (different details) as lock stock. so lock stock.
i maintain that guy ritchie's greatest achievement was to cast some pretty awful actors and pass their emotionally devoid performances off as style, rather than lack of ability.
