Emperor of the North

I've always been partial to hobo movies/documentaries, but this was just through the roof. Its amazing how in reality the hobo was the menace, but I loved him and rooted for him the whole way. Shack, the train conductor, rivals Nurse Ratchet of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest for all-time greatest villian. I mean his eyes practically pop out of his head. The struggle for superiority between the these two characters kept my eyes glued. I will buy this and I will watch it many many times.


I want to be a hobo.

11/10

Stand By Me

Cute, feelgoody, wholesome but nothing to get too excited about. I can imagine old people really liking it though.

6/10

Frozen River

I love films that slap you with a bit of reality and this one does it well. As stereotypical and insensitive as it may sound, poor people have poor ways. Its amazing how quickly you can spiral downward when you make one bad decision out of desperation. And this film shows exactly that. The acting is superb from everyone with the exception of the one Indian woman, which I was a little dissapointed with since she played such a key role. Nevertheless
10/10

Dog Day Afternoon
Every once in a while I watch an older movie for the first time that's so incredibly good that I'm sort of disappointed in myself for not having watched it sooner. This is one of those. Amazing, amazing movie and I was surprised to realize how many movies I've seen that were clearly influenced by it.

Love this movie. Borgnine is just an arsehole throughout.

In theaters:


On my own time at home:


The former was interesting and the first 3D movie I ever went to see. I probably wouldn't like it at all really, were it not for the 3D, but it was a good time.

The latter was bizarre, but I actually enjoyed it.

Plot holes a plenty but as far as B movie sci-fi hokum goes, it was decent enough. Decent set design and a relative lack of cliches means it's probably worth another watch.

You really do watch a lot of trash - some good stuff as well, mind.
But a lot of trash nonetheless.
I don't understand people's appreciation for B movies
Then again, I'm not a fan of cheese.

I grew up with video nasties, 80's OTT action and B movies and can differentiate between the aims via more serious movies.

I am easily at home discussing Fulci Zombie movies or the socio-political attributes of Ken Loach.

Besides that, I do enjoy seeing people ripped limb from limb

Just because I watch Van Damme films doesn't mean I don't know my movies. I know they are crap and that's the difference.

Everyone who watches them knows they're crap, that's why I don't get the appeal!
Usually when I want something a bit light hearted
I'll watch a rubbish comedy which cheers me up somewhat.
Different strokes for different folks.

I have to be up in 7 hours and I'm tempted to watch another film. Has anyone seen Oldboy? Is it any good?
And is it part of a trilogy, I heard it was part of a revenge trilogy or something.
Do you need to watch the first film to 'get it', or are they all stand alone independent films?
