500 Days Of Shite more like. Cheers!
And I quite like it.
Just a nice love story, no big deal. People only hate it because it supposedly carries some sort of hipster cachet. But those people are even more annoying than the hipsters they seek to define themselves against.
there is nothing objectionable about that film at all
That is all.
I can see why people would dislike it but I see little wrong with it.
Characters are likeable (bar his mates) and relateably realistic. It's an easy watch with a couple of laughs and just one cringe - the bit with the dancing in the park. I like what they were going for but think they could've done it a bit better.
The Han Solo bit is quality.
because I am twee as fuck.
Everything is shades of green and beige - the backgrounds, the curtains, their clothes. Nice attention to detail. The film was alright also, documented that annoying being stuck half in the friend zone thing nicely.
I mean you've got some great acting talent, good direction, that sort of thing, but it fails in a few key bits.
For one thing there aren't enough scenes where you're meant to see two sides to the story, where, when he looks back he understands that he's been a massive idiot and brought it all on himself. So it just seems a bit weedy and lacking in substance.
For another, for any man who's been through that sort of relationship situation and has grown and learned it's a bit like teaching your grandmother to suck eggs. I guess if you're the sort of guy who goes through life from on, "OH MY GOD, WHY DOESN'T SHE LOVE ME? WHY DOESN'T SHE UNDERSTAND?" relationship to another without ever realising the problem is you then maybe it's profound and it teaches you something you didn't already know.
Anyway, I didn't hate it, I just have no desire to ever waste my time watching it again. I reserve 'hatred' for utter bilge like Tomb Raider, Transformers or Batman Forever: films with absolutely no redeeming features.
2. Kiss from a Rose
3. Val Kilmer's underrated interpretation of Bruce Wayne
4. Jim Carrey's entertaining turn as Edward Nigma
5. Jim Carrey's entertaining turn as The Riddler
6. Tommy Lee Jones
7. Nicole Kidman was really hot in it
8. That bit in the circus where Bruce shouts that he is Batman but no one can hear him.
9. Compared to Batman & Robin it's like the bloody French Connection
10. Kiss from a Rose
11. Kiss from a Rose
12. Kiss from a Rose
But yeah compared to Batman and Robin....
I mean, Batman Forever was fucking awful because of Schumacher so I couldn't see any point in letting him hoodwink me a second time.
in a very passive - well whatever is on - sort of mood.
My jaw was agape throughout. I simply couldn't believe they'd managed to make it THAT BAD.
Val Kilmer...just terrible.
Tommy Lee Jones? Oh fucking Jesus Christ. If you were to pick one thing, one thing that is worse than anything else in it, it would be Tommy Lee Jones and his interpretation of Two-Face as "One-Face".
Nicole Kidman, like all her movies, looks like she's just waiting for a moment to stab you with a handy pair of scissors. Disturbing.
I don't even remember that bit in the circus. It sounds shit, like that "Holy Rusted Metal" joke that I assumed you would pull out.
You can't compare it to a film that came later and say it's therefore redeemed. By this logic Jaws 3D is redeemed by Jaws: The Revenge.
Jim Carrey is okay in it but it's nothing we haven't seen in much much better films and doesn't count as something to praise.
You're really going to pull out some third-rate U2 song as a redeeming feature? Really? REALLY?!
trying to date rape an amnesiac drew barrymore?
Because I've seen the trailer for that. Didn't look much cop.
I watched Contagion last night. Made me feel poorly. Also watched the Fighter over the weekend.
500 Days of Summer is a weird one, it's one of those whioh is okay to pass the time, but I wouldn't go beserk over it. Zooey Deschanal's character is odd as well, in that she's actually completely horrible. I think the most angering thing about it is that his nerdy colleague with the glasses is married to Christina Hendricks
He will just find (500) Days of Summer to be irritating and want to slap Gordon-Levitt until he wakes the fuck up and smells the coffee.
Whats the rom-com thing with Ryan Gosling in it? I saw a trailer for it and it looks like a "I like old movies" "Girl on the platform smile" kind of shit fest. The trailer had him playing a ukele whilst she tap danced in a doorway for Christs sake.
I watched Cell 211 last night, it was entertaining.
An Alpaca almost flobbed on me as well. Almost.
I haven't seen it, but I understand it's more slit-your-wrists than rom-com, but depends on your point of view I guess.
I wouldn't watch it reflected off your chrome dome.
It's not a rom-com in the slightest, if anything it's one of the most uncomfortable things I've seen. Watch it.
Cell 211 is pretty sweet too yeah
I watched the Proposition last night. I couldn't actually BELIEVE how awful it was.
Grim but amazing.
...the one with Sandra Bullock in it.
THE PROPOSAL, PEOPLE, THE PROPOSAL.
Holy fuck what have I done :(
damage is done
