Three Kings written and directed by David O Russell is a very underrated war movie. This one doesn't get mentioned in the war genre a lot , probably because it has comedic elements and lacks battle scenes , but it could arguably be knocking at the door of the top 10 imo.
The unique visual style , tones and textures were inventive back in 1999 and probably still would be today. It has depth , heart and a very strong anti-war message. It has a lot to say for itself and is a very satisfying watch. 9/10




Think I've seen this, don't think I remember one bit about it. Great war movies have a lasting impression, "the horror" or the absolute devastation of

The Business

In 1980's London, Danny Dyer dreams of being a somebody so he becomes a gopher for some shitcunt drug dealer on the Costa Del Sol.

Guns and geezers in the sun, terrible, great soundtrack though.

Billy Liar (1963)



Long danced around watching this one cause it's not your typical no-nonsense kitchen-sink Britflick (or the De La Hoya version of it, now let that sink in), but rather a lighter hearted coming of age (but not to common sense) dramedy of the 20ish in 1960ish small town UK. Wow, am I selling this or what? But in case ur still here (ya cunt!) all I need to add is "early John Schlesinger", "young Julie Christie", "Tom Courtenay" and "sense of Rebel Without a Cause" and it's suddenly as appealing as some hand mirror with some white dust on it. Fortunately, my caution was unwarranted (not about mirrors and dust): Billy Liar lives up to its reputation.

Billy's a bored, young clerk still living at mums, fantasizing about him being a general, da boss, being a comedy writer and whatnot, but in reality his just a pissant tossed around at the office so he also fantasizes about gently murdering ppl. via machine guy. Yeah he's a weird one... He's also engaged to two separate lasses AND hot young Julie Christie has it for him too for whatever British reason when he's clearing no James Deen (dic! I mean sic!). But he's the same unpredictable and un-containable rebel nobody really understands, and his story also comes together fine.

Tom Courtenay's brash personality and the post-post-WWII UK backdrop now buzzing with new buildings on the back of demolished old ones, a perhaps some very early sense of 1968 ideas create the kind of environment you gladly mischief in with him. I'm not even sure why this is considered a comedy when it has the same character depth and implications beyond a series of events as those bleak kitchen sinkflicks - that they too have funny moments. Schleisinger succeeds at presenting something familiar, yet quite enigmatic, and it easily comes RECOMMENDED.

Watched that on a pirate dvd years ago. It was rubbish, but watchable rubbish. One of Dyer's better efforts.

Death Sentence

After his star hockey player son is murdered during a holdup, businessman and all round family man Kevin Bacon goes proper fucking mental and takes the law into his own hands to take bloody vengeance on the gang responsible.

Pretty average revenge film, one thing I did like though was when Kevin bought a load of guns he read the user manuals rather than automatically turning into Rambo :lol:

Boring!

Tedious sci fi action sequel which feels everyone of it's 100 minutes, best bit is Larry Fishburne playing a nutter.

I thought its quite good certainly better than that shit Shane Black served us.
Didn't feel Brody as a leading star though.
As you said Fishburne was great in his basically came role.
How long you been here?9....no 10 seasons!

Entertaining enough war film based on America's initial response to 9/11, how much of it is fact I'm not sure because the actual combat scenes are more akin to a 1980's action film, probably 20-30 minutes too long as well but I thought it was alright.

During their performance at the 1992 Reading Festival, the band experienced "technical difficulties with their audio equipment" and were forced to stall their set. The rowdy crowd grew restless and began throwing mud onto the stage, repeatedly pelting the band. In protest, lead vocalist Donita Sparks removed her tampon on-stage and threw it into the crowd yelling "Eat my used tampon, fuckers!" Sparks has remained unapologetic about the incident,[5][80] and the tampon has been referred to as one of the "most unsanitary pieces of rock memorabilia in history."
