The Killing

Directed by Stanley Kubrick

Great Heist thriller starring Sterling Hayden.. Was lucky enough to see this on the big screen last night..
I'd think possibly an influence on Tarentino's Dogs..

Absolutely amazing seeing this today.. This film will always be one of my faves and looked so good on the big screen..
Full house too and lots of younger people, I wonder if this was the first time for some of them... as it was for Mrs Gant..

I was also very impressed with the sound in the cinema.. Gave the film a very gritty and realistic feel.

Fave scene is the one between Wales and Ten Bears. Very powerful...

Yes, it was the pic of Eastwood as Mitchell Gant in the cockpit of the Firefox...

The movie was "If Beale St Could Talk" Christopher... To be honest  there was one person between us.
Learned later that Mr Jackman was in London to present some awards...

Josey Wales today, suns already out, perfect day for a stroll along the Southbank first...

Agreed... Hope Clint turns up.
Last time I was there about a month ago I sat next to Hugh Jackman... :)

It's well good Matt, a fantastic city full of cool stuff as well as all the Beatles trips.. Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields were amazing... And three was a fantastic John and Yoko exhibition at the Museum of Liverpool...

I'd definitely like to return someday...

I just got back from a three day trip to Liverpool where I managed to cram in all the Beatle tours etc plus a great night out at the Cavern Club... Highly recommended, it's a beautiful city too with the friendliest people.. And some great bars..

Worthy second film from "Get Out" director  Jordan Peele.. One of my favourite films from last year..

This is also superb

Creepy, funny, clever, scary and thought provoking..

Its been a few days now and I can honestly say I really loved this film. It's stayed with me and I hope I can see it again before it leaves the cinemas over here.
I think its one of Clints best performances, right up there with Baby and Torino for me of his later film work. If Clints acting again then this is exactly what I want to see ie something different, a new departure.. (unlike that in Curve).  Sure, there's elements of past characters in Earl (as has been previously mentioned) but I've never seen him quite like this before.. The character was almost whimsical, funny .. totally suiting his current age too...
I also thought all the supporting cast were excellent too.. right down to the smallest parts.. I thought Garcia was great in his tiny role..
I loved the music and all the scenes of Earl driving along and singing... the dancing too..
Although fun in places I still found it quite tense at times, especially towards the end and didnt think the trailer was overly misleading..

negatives... the camera did seem to linger a little too long on the young ladies ahem.. bodies.. It looked like a shot from a 70's film.. and I did also think the way he reconcilled with his family at the end a little too pat.. but these are small things..
I thought it a great movie with a wonderful performance.. If it's Clints last acting role then it satisfies me.. a perfect one to bow out on..

I thought that up until the end the gang members were quite  freindly towards Earl and obviously warmed to him as the film wore on..

Just back from seeing The Mule..

I'll keep it short and post more of my review later..
But just to say I absolutely loved it. Eastwood the actor has rarely been better. I enjoyed the story, the music and all the other characters. A really good, fun, sometimes sad movie... Didn't drag for a second.

I too noticed the close -ups which I thought worked well.. I mean who can relay more emotion in a close up than our Clint :)

Can you ever forgive me

Totally enjoyed this move along with the fantastic performances by Melissa McCarthy and Richard E Grant..

Based on a true story.. A bittersweet, comedic drama..  5/5

I don't know if it's possible to find a link and if it is I'm not the man to do it ;)
but there's a very good and interesting review of The Mule in the March issue of Sight & Sound by Violet Lucca
raising many points that I've not really read anywhere else... I'd be interested to see what you all think..

It's rare for a film about a Mexican drugs cartel and the impossibility of the American dream
To be either disarming or funny, but Clint Eastwood has blessedly delivered one that is constantly both

I've been away touring a while and havnt been able to see the movie yet. Hopefully this weekend...

Cool, interesting looking back through them...

Great review batfunk2...

I'm so eager to see this film...
