Well that was pretty bloody great, that was.
Where have you been??!!
Anyway, yeah it's a masterpiece. One of the few recent films I could easily watch over and over again and never tire of it.
What am I thinking?>?????????><<<>>>?>??????
have you seen the Devil's Backbone yet?
if you haven't you really should
On a separate, but not completely unrelated, note I think I left my Garth Marenghi's Dark Place dvd behind. If you happen to see it could you please let me know. Thanks :)
but the dvd isn't.
Most of the films there aren't very good...I've admitedly never spotted PL, but I watched everything I wanted to within the first week.
Thanks for looking though. Haha that's because all the best films left the house with me :)
I should have realised that they would be yours.
Did you know Sarah is moving out? James might turn out to be a huge film buff?
Where is she going? James as in tall kind of northern James? I like him, he supports Spurs.
she broke up with Jonni, so I think that has something to do with it.
She said she's moving in with someone called Vicki and Michelle (who I think I've met)
Do you also suffer form the problem whereby you can never identify which of their friends are which and which ones you've met before from the ones you haven't? I was rubbish at remembering them all and it lead to a few awkward situations. Damn them and their seemingly limitless supply of friends!
I'm rarely there anyway, so there's heaps of people I don't know.
it is something special, clearly.
I kind of wish I could speak Spanish so I could tell if the script was really good rather than kind of nondescript but other than that...
Nothing else I've seen by del Toro is remotely as good. The Devil's Backbone is OK I suppose and Cronos is postively appalling so I do wonder whether PL was a fluke
Cronos would be better if it didn't look like it was shot with the same crap that awful daytime straight to TV melodramas
it's nothing special
would you say are special if this isn't?
but I don't watch many films. It's not that I hate this film, it's just a bit of a 7/10 kind of film
As would the girlfriend. It was an average war movie, an average fantasy film and an average observation on characters merged into one fairly predictable mess of a film. Barely anyone agrees with me on this at all, but it did very little for me at all and I found the violence in it both horrifically O-T-T and simultaneously embarrassingly bad.
File under 'Over-rated' for me...
I could have watched it again right after. One of the best films I've seen in ages.
the fantasy felt incomplete
I saw the ending comming miles away, never liked the ending.
n scores 8 out of 10 on my scale
ignore ducky, he's a silly boy
one of the greatest films of the decade
so sad, so creepy, so gory. love it!
This film really freaked me out! Wasn't too keen on the freaky hand eye monster either...
But good film, i need to see it again as i was focusing too much on trying to get into the girl i was watching it with's pants. success though. worth it? nope.
(I hate this cocking website)
