Film Diary 2012
1091 7.8 81. A Fistful of Dollars (1964)
My favourite of the Dollars trilogy.
1058 8 8.32. For a Few Dollars More (1965)
Great acting from Eastwood and Van Cleef.
Found it boring at parts.
2347 8.5 93. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)
A bit disapointing but very well made film all the same.
Not suprised that it's called a classic.
5980 7.8 8.54. Back to the Future (1985)
Why hadn't I seen this before?!
I loved this film, everything about it.
3895 7.3 7.75. Back to the Future Part II (1989)
Great sequel to an amazing film.
Dragged on a bit much and I felt it lost the humour and the greatness of the first.
3427 7 7.36. Back to the Future Part III (1990)
Great return to form.
I loved the setting, great and original.
959 6.8 7.47. Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011)
I don't see why this is rated so highly, I almost fell asleep at one point.
481 7 7.38. Frailty (2001)
I was very suprised with this film, very underrated horror film which keeps the audience guessing long after the end credits.
1675 7.8 7.99. Drive (2011)
Great film, but I can see why it divides people.
Luckily I'm one of the people who adore this film, the cast, the cars, the music, everything.
844 7.2 7.210. Wild at Heart (1990)
I was disapointed with this film by one of my favourite directors Mr. David Lynch.
I felt that not enough happened for me to really care what happened.
1741 7.8 811. Brazil (1985)
I was anticipating finally getting to see this, and I wasn't disapointed.
I loved the satire, the humour, the action. Loved the ending most of all.
1457 7.6 812. In Bruges (2008)
I had heard good things about this film, and I was hoping to like it, but I just didn't.
I didn't like Colin Farrel, I didn't like the plot. Bland.
2263 7.5 7.713. The Machinist (2004)
Very interesting film, even though I knew the twist going in to it.
Christian Bale possibly with a career best performance?
1120 7.4 7.114. Melancholia (2011)
I adore this film.
From it's nihilistic views on the end of the world, to the handheld camera work, to the sheer hopelessness of the main character.
Von Trier's (a mediocre director in my books) best.
645 6.2 6.515. The Woman in Black (2012)
I was expecting to be scared, but I wasn't.
I think the main thing I didn't like about this film comes from casting. I just wasn;t able to sit through this watching Harry Potter. Everytime The Woman in Black appeared I was waiting for him to take out his wand!
946 7.3 7.716. Gone Baby Gone (2007)
I never liked Ben Affleck as an actor, but the man is a fantasric director.
Also I'm a huge fan of his brotehr Casey, who is fantastic in this film.
1438 7.2 7.617. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Cowa... (2007)
Yet another great performance by Casey Affleck and my favourite actor, Mr. Brad Pitt.
The visuals in this film are truly stunning.
1303 6.9 7.118. Super 8 (2011)
I was suprised with this film, I wasn't expecting much.
I liked the mature acting from young actors and some of the visuals were great, I'm not a fan of the lens flare though.
1602 7.1 7.219. The Hunger Games (2012)
My God did I not enjoy this film.
It was bland, it was boring and it was anti-climatic.
I did enjoy Jennifer Lawrences performance though.
1822 6.3 6.520. Silent Hill (2006)
Awful acting. Awful plot. Awful direction.
1523 6.9 7.221. The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004)
And my love for Wes Anderson is born!
Love this film. I loved the acting, the visuals, the plot, the music,everything.
3969 7.4 7.822. Lost in Translation (2003)
I'm aware of the backlas that Sofia Coppola gets, but this is a great little film from her.
The main cast work very well together. Great ending.
1320 6.9 7.223. Prometheus (2012)
I think this was one of those film were it becomes less amazing the more you think about it.
It looks great, but the plot is juvenile at best.
1996 7.5 7.524. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
Suprised with this.
I don't really like Michael Cera but this was an enjoyable film.
678 7.7 7.725. Happiness (1998)
Oh this film.
First off I get very uncomfortable watching films depicting rape, paedophilia and other abuses as such.
I found this film although funny at times and very well acted, very hard to sit through.
1292 7.5 7.326. Eraserhead (1977)
Finally got around to seeing Lynch's first, and it's very Lynch.
I like how I still enjoyed this film even though I had no idea what was going on.
1247 7.6 7.827. Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)
Great film from Wes Anderson.
I loved the voiceover work from the caast, notably Jason Schwartzman.
1360 7.2 7.128. The Darjeeling Limited (2007)
Yet another great film by Mr. Anderson.
Great work from the cast, I loved the setting.
1738 8.1 8.229. Annie Hall (1977)
One word: hilarious.
Every scene in this film is hilarious. Woody Allan is a genius.
1085 7.1 7.630. Dazed and Confused (1993)
What a fun film. Great quotes.
2115 7.9 8.331. The Avengers (2012)
I think the hype destroyed this for me.
I DON'T SEE WHY SO MANY PEOPLE LOVE THIS?!
It was boring, plotless, unfunny and just lame.
657 7 732. Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992)
I was really looking forward to this.
I didn't like the limited screentime for our favourite Special Agent, but it was a teriifying, mind blowing, amazing experience.
2285 7.3 7.533. The Royal Tenenbaums (2001)
And I have just watched my favourite film ever.
I loved absoloutly everything about this film.
386 7.3 7.334. Manhattan Murder Mystery (1993)
Nice little film by Allan.
487 6.7 7.135. Bottle Rocket (1996)
Nor Andersons best film, but the performances from the Wilson brothers make it.
1285 8 836. Manhattan (1979)
Not my favourite from Allan but a nice little film.
272 6.9 7.237. God Bless America (2011)
Oh I thought this was a great little nearly-unknown film.
I didn't even know it existed until I watched it at a friends and I really enjoyed it.
957 7.2 7.438. Brick (2005)
What a great film.
Great combination of old school noir and high school drama.
945 6.5 6.739. I Heart Huckabees (2004)
Shakey plot, not funny, tries too hard to be metaphorical and psychologically out there.
