Just a quick post this week to get into the swing of it. Saw X-Men: First Class last weekend. I went in with high expectations based on a few twitter whispers i’d read, and while it unfortunately couldn’t meet all those expectations, it did pleasantly fill it’s two hour run time and is generally speaking good popcorn fooder. Continue reading X-Men: First Class
Hello, I’m Daniel and I’m an addict, a drama addict, it’s all William’s fault.
Drama addiction is a serious condition, which is perfectly described below:-
The audience will do anything to spend time with a great character. We’re junkies for it. We’ll gnaw our own arms off to hang out once more with a killer character. It’s why sequels and series are so popular: because we want to see where the character’s going. You give us a great character, our only desire becomes to lick him like he’s a hallucinogenic toad and take the crazy trip-ass ride wherever he has to go.
Anybody who has seen The Wire will know what a brilliant piece of work it is, and yet it remains something of a mystery to those who haven’t seen anything of it (There are two groups of people when it comes to The Wire, those that love it, and those who haven’t seen it). Continue reading The Wire : The Dickensian Aspect
Just re-watched “I’m Not There“, love that film, sums up perfectly everything I love about Dylan, the idea of constantly trying to find yourself, figure out who you are, trying to be a better you, whoever that is. That will probably sound like waffle to a lot of people, probably to a lot of Dylan fans as well. Some Dylan fans may even think i’ve completely missed the point of most of Dylan’s music and the film, since they get a completely different message from Dylan’s music, for me the fact that different people hear different messages and take different things away is the point.
The below post was originally posted on one of my other sites “24fans.com” earlier in the year.
It’s been a while since we’ve had anything newsworthy to post, my apologies for not posting more regularly with news on the 24: Movie, unfortunately the only news is, their is no news, and it didn’t seem worthwhile posting until I have something slightly more up beat to discuss. So i’m pleased to tell you that I bring you news of “A ’24′ Film” (Just not “The ’24′ Film”).
A few years ago during the longer than normal break between seasons 6 & 7 due to the WGA writers strike, I posted several fan made efforts to help us all get our fix. By far the best of these was CTU: Provo, a feature length film which tells the story of a terrorist threat to Utah posed by Tree Hugging Eco-Terrorists & 70′s Teen Idols turned bad and the efforts of CTU’s regional office in Provo to stop them. (You can read my original review here). Continue reading CTU: Provo Available on Youtube
What made ’24′ great was taking an idea so simple people couldn’t believe it hadn’t been thought of before, and doing it perfectly. The simpler a situation the show was depicting, the better it was, the purer it was.
Day One, A Federal agent is torn between his duty to protect a Senator, and his duty to protect his family. That’s all Day One was. Try as you might you won’t be able to come up with a similar one sentence description for Day Eight. Certainly there are parts which have been just a simple, the most simple an idea was Jack’s fight for justice during the last 7 hours. Which is why these last 7 hours where the best of these last 24. Why certain parts of these last two where so touching, emotional and even moving, whilst others where simply plot. Continue reading 24 : Fade To Black
I write this having now seen the final two episode of Season 7 three times. This has thankfully given me some distance from the emotional impact of the episodes. I thought about writing a season recap and finale review immediately after seeing the episodes, but it would have been entirely postive and I would have revealed the idiotic fan-boy within. Continue reading 24 : Time’s Up
OBAMA: What would you do?
BARTLET: GET ANGRIER! Call them liars, because that’s what they are. Sarah Palin didn’t say “thanks but no thanks” to the Bridge to Nowhere. She just said “Thanks.” You were raised by a single mother on food stamps — where does a guy with eight houses who was legacied into Annapolis get off calling you an elitist? And by the way, if you do nothing else, take that word back. Elite is a good word, it means well above average. I’d ask them what their problem is with excellence. While you’re at it, I want the word “patriot” back … Mock them mercilessly; they’ve earned it. McCain decried agents of intolerance, then chose a running mate who had to ask if she was allowed to ban books from a public library. … And you’re worried about seeming angry? You could eat their lunch, make them cry and tell their mamas about it and God himself would call it restrained. There are times when you are simply required to be impolite. There are times when condescension is called for!
From an Op-Ed piece in the New York Times a few days ago, stuff like this is why I love the internet. Read the rest here
…there always room in life for this. I saw the bourne ultimatum today, great film, brilliant, superb, best of the summer by far, while I was watching it I could almost imagine other action thriller producers make notes. Believe me, Bond 22 will bare the marks of Ultimatum, just like Casino Royale bore those of Supremacy. In some ways I feel like a moment in movie history has just played out in front of me, The Bourne trilogy I think has guaranteed it’s place in every made for TV film retrospective for the next 50 years. Don’t believe me, go see.
The title of this entry comes from the moby song which has played over the credits of every bourne film. I use it not just because it’s a good line, but because it helps me make a further point, too many of this summers blockbusters i’ve been able to shrug off and say, “ah, i’ll see it on dvd.”, the industry keeps bemoaning falling attendances at cinema, blaming downloading and pirate dvd’s. Produce more films like bourne, films up too that standard, and people will stand in line, maybe even come back a second time.
I came out of the cinema today, genuinely glad i’d gone to see Bourne on the big screen, and as cheesy as it sounds thinking, “i would stand in line for this.”
