That's far too middle class! I guess what I am trying to say is lost here. Despite what others think, the British film industry is genuinely dying unless we make middle class period pieces that translate well but if we have a film that is 75% based in the U.K whether financially or logistically, then that should be promoted surely?

The French or Italians make movies for their won market and rightfully so. Why do we not do that over her anymore? This is more of a personal rant and not aimed at anyone in particular.

^ I liked Chinatown. But his nose was really distracting the entire movie. I'm not really sure if that was purposeful.

Nic Cage is British?

At any rate, I loved Kick Ass.

And Nine Black Poppies, that was an excellent review of Inception and exactly how I felt about it (and The Dark Knight too)...

Thanks I guess that sort of speaks to Chris Nolan's talent as a director making up for his weaknesses as a writer. He has a lot of really interesting ideas--I've really enjoyed all his movies (I haven't seen Following, but even Insomnia was pretty solid for an English remake of a foreign film)--but I'm not sure any of them quite hit the heights it seems like he reaches for philosophically.

I enjoyed Kick Ass too, btw. And no, the main kid and the villain (the dad, not the kid) are British, the rest of the main cast is American. But yeah, the writer, director and some (most?) of the producers are British.
Like carnivores to carnal pleasures, so were we to desperate measures...

I'm taking a film elective that's going to be mainly focused on documentaries so we watched this, as a documentary about documentaries, to kick off the class. It was pretty interesting, but pretty much just a series of interviews with clips from films so if you're not one for just watching people talk then it probably wouldn't entertain you. I found it especially interesting when they asked the same questions to different directors/filmmakers but got wildly different answers. It shows that documentary really is a wide open field with a whole lot of different possibilities and directions.

Today I stayed home sick and was looking through my movie collection to find something cool and found this. I forgot I bought it awhile ago! Anyways it was pretty hilarious but a little boring at times. I loved the ending lines though. Overall: 8/10. Makes me want to read the book.

^the book is spectacular.

Last movie I saw, The Mask, I don't quite understand exactly why I loved that movie so much as a youngin.
