Key Largo Bogart, Edward G Robinson and Lauren Bacall 9/10 tense crime drama during a storm in the Florida Keys, Claire Trevor is brilliant as Edward G Robinson's boozy moll, Bogart on great form and Lauren Bacall sultry as ever!
Pulp Fiction is fun. I haven't seen that in a while. Think I need to watch that again.
Just watched Babel - Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett (sp?) are in it -- but not completely the main focus. I thought it was quite good - love how it jumps around from Morocco, to California, to Mexico to Japan -- excellent filming too (to my highly untrained eye).
I just watched, "The Descent". In a nut-shell, it's a horror movie about a group of women who explore a dark cave, and to their shock-horror, encounter blood-thirsty goblin/monsters!
As lame as the plot sounds, it's surprisingly good, with interesting & unexpected character developments throughout the film. I give it 6.5 out of ten
NOTE- One of the main characters is Eurasian!!!!!!! Her name is Natalia Mendoza and she's 1/2 Filipino, 1/4 German and 1/4 Australian. She also grew up in Sydney, Australia- how cool is that! Here's a pic of her below:
I just watched "Casino Royale" the James Bond movie. It was alright. I think it was a bit over-rated from a lot of people. I didn't think the plot was excellent or anything. This Bond is also less charming imo. But nice to go to the cinemas... been a long time
^ I heard he was less charming too. And I was reading this article on him by someone who interviewed him and they found exactly the same thing...he's quite an icy character in real life and isn't a very nice person at all..well afterall his two favourite words are 'f*ck you' lol.
I watched the Prestige today. It was quite good I liked it! I'd give it 8/10
^ Oh really? Haha that explains it. I do like his eyes though. They're an electric, icy sort of blue. What was interesting though was the lack of gadgets and MAN is that guy's body stacked or what?! Not saying I liked it but he was pretty big.
I guess we're used to the charming James Bond's and all the gadgets. This didn't really romanticise his character He didn't even have his own car! I don't want to say too much but the ending wasn't a typical one. Guess that's interesting.

Well the reason why James Bond this time round has been put amongst the greatest is because he is not charming. The objective is to make Bond seem sinister and hes not supposed to act all charming. Probably why Daniel Craig has been given good reviews for it. His demeanor is cool and calm.
