Re: The Re-make Thread

I had to post about this (http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/filmblog/2009/oct/27/third-man-remake-dicaprio).

This can only lead to a disaster. I don't mind Leonardo DiCaprio so much, but what a bad...

Re: Recent Purchases 2009

Hi lurgee. I'm relatively new to Hammett, but I've fallen head over heels for his style. I failed to mention that, along with the novel collection, I also ordered Nightmare Town which is being...

That looks like six months of ace viewing, bill.

I just got this:

Re: Top 10 British Films 1984-2009

Fair play.

In my opinion it's far stronger than This Is England, which was class, but so thin on plot it was barely even a film. It seemed more of a snapshot of real skin head culture taken by a...

Re: Top 10 British Films 1984-2009

Okay, I agree with some of those already mentioned. Especially Withnail and I, Nil by Mouth and Shawn of the Dead. Also good to see animation being honoured, Col. Here are some of my additions:

Re: The Hurt Locker

I nearly started a thread about this the other day. I enjoyed it and it's good to see war being portrayed closer to reality rather than the usual glitzy film/ computer game take on the genre....

Re: Copyrights and wrongs

This (http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2009/aug/30/google-library-project-books-settlement) is an interesting article. It's to do with Google's efforts to digitalize millions of books so people...

Re: Inglourious(sic) Basterds(sic)

Hey, bill. Cheers for posting up this discussion. I never gave the film's political undertones that much consideration so it's opened up a whole new angle for me and I now have to take it a little...

Re: El Orfanato (The Orphanage)

Coincidentally my bro and his girlfriend, who I live with, are presently watching the remake of REC which is called Quarantine. It looks fairly shoddy, but so was the original.

A remake of The...

Re: Inglourious(sic) Basterds(sic)

I watched IB tonight and thought it was top class! To me it came across like the director was out to have fun (as always). But it also managed to translate well for the viewing public. In my opinion...

Hi all. I've gone back to reading more than contributing, but will be back to say hello every once in awhile. This is because my life has just got way too hectic for being a regular.

Re: Worst Sex Writing

Sex appears loads in Port Mungo by McGrath; at least the word does. It was the only thing that got on my nerves about reading it. Whereas if I remember rightly the sex parts in Asylum were written...

Re: I need some good liberal books...

I'm not one for animosity but I did think that Dix's comments were put forward a little harshly at the beginning of this thread. That whole 'anti-American' attitude is bad boogie. Especially when we...

True, Kevin. I didn't want to attack the recommendation, but I did think to myself that it wasn't particularly "liberal"! It's also a super dismal read and unless you're a Nazi sympathizer, you ain't...
