I'm bored already.
a new thread?
How could they balls up a a mix of stupid hats and gang violence. This shit should practically write itself!
it's turd I tell ye.
Its like a pantomime.
leonardo dicaprio can't do irish
It was never a film I was too bothered about seeing, but I'm glad I watched it.
Especially the last 30 seconds which were beautiful.
You're all schmucks.
that really was bunk. Overblown. Shit.
And possibly the worst closing shot I've ever seen.
Great. Anyway, he's right though (on this issue), Gangs of New York is amazing. Fact. Daniel Day Lewis is like some acting God in it. Talk about stealing the show.
btw, is the Musicians board still in tact?
granted, it is pretty wank in places and we don't need ALL the exposition that he gives us (ooh flashbacks to the underground caverns, for gods sake we KNOW who john c reilly is!)... and the random 'arty' bits - the bible in the water etc.
day-lewiss accent is fucking atrocious, but not as bad as cameron diazs irish accent. uck.
however, i like it. maybe because it's more relevant to me... i don't know. alright film - highly entertaining...
i also give them props also for the various spatterings of irish in there.
sounds like the new york cop that vic reeves does in Catterick. He plays like a pantomime villain.
Truly one of the worst films i have ever seen. Awful acting coupled with a cliched and cack-handedly written script. Also the camera work is amateurish and the set-pieces are scrappy and unrealistic.
AND the secnery looks like the scenery in the live action version of popeye.
Day Lewis is amazing. Hence the Oscar win. Bill the Butcher is meant to be almost cartoon like. The set is amazing. The characters, scrpit and story is amazing. To say the acting is awful is ludicrous. Who was bad in it? What films do you think have clearly better acting? Die Hard?
You talk-a the shite.
The acting is awful, it is sub, sub, sub par - you are actually telling me that watching lewis gurn his way through a 3 hour pantomime floats your boat?
Lets not bring oscar wins into it as vinidications of opinion, cos that it's just The Brits with actors.
It is a ridiculously over-rated film, mawkish, cliched, and unrealistic.
Compare it to "once upon a time in china" for a historic epic that blows it clean out of the water in every respect.
Once Upon A Time In China is great (just don't mention the sequels).
Am I the only one who thought "I'd rather be watching Deadwood" every minute they sat through this film?
I'm not winning this argument am I?
What are you a girl?
Oh, you are. Well, um, yeah!
Someone said it was the worst acting ever. Hardly. It's pretty damn amazing. It's just hyped too much.
Worst film evah! goes to eXistenCe.
It sucked so bad. Jude Law was like a tree.
could be said of anything written here. Are the arctic monkeys actually as bad a band as made out, or is it only the media hyperbole which encourages the 'hate'?
For the record, i try to avoid films i think i will hate, so i have not see scary movie. Big mommas house 2 though - i am so there.
