Grandmas Boy is the funniest movie I've seen in awile. I'm not a big movie person though but I keep watching it a couple times a week for about a month now. It's the new dumb and dumber for me of 8 years ago.

im a huge fan of the saw trilogy.


Yeah they are quite the awesome horror movies.
Far better than The Hills have eyes. That movie was sick. There is a 2nd one coming out hopefully it is just as insane as the first one.

Was going to start this thread at some point.

I did some write ups for films for friends just for jokes a while ago. You will have to excuse some references as nobody will get them because it's banter about school friends, eg Johnny Keyworth always fainted when he saw blood in biology. Anybody who is actually anygood at writing or knows much about these films and would like to give some feedback, that would be cool. Anybody who hasn't seen them go watch.

Irreversible.

This is one of the most disturbingly violent and graphic films i've ever seen so it problims not for the Johnny Keyworths in the world. I almost feel bad letting anybody know that this film exists due to certain scenes, when things are simply taken too far.

French film, and it has the geezer from Oceans 12 and La Haine, Vincent Cassel and thedrop dead gorgeous Monica 'I can't look at you the same anymore' Belluci (matrix, Passion of the jew)

This is filmed back to front, starts at the end, finishes at the beginning, adding even more to the confusion of the film being in French.

Sickening or not the final scenes are carefully chosen word, brave. Putting a nine minute, uniterrupted rape scene into a film tends not to be a great idea for most directors and as I, I won't be suprised if you just turned away and stopped watching.

There is alot of focus on the impact of situations, reaction to peoples actions and the necessity for retribution and this is glorified by the work that the Gaspar Noe and the producers have out in to make such a intriguing and poweful film. CGI is used VERY effectively in the scene that I will only describe to you as Pork Pie Head scene, again turn away for those who don't like graphic stuff, as this again is minging.

There are seemingly quite a few decent French films out there, and i'll probably wirte up La Haine and Amelie when I get the time, this is one of the best of them in terms of originality and cinematography and the film really is a good cinema experience, albeit shocking.



Admit it you only watched it because you get to see Bellucci naked .. She's truly amazing. But yeah "Irreversible" is okay but a little too ..not intense (gimme a word? slow?) for my taste.

I like american not very complex movies like
Road to Perdition
Identity
Big Fish
Crash

oh almost forgot... and Dude where's my car. Norweigan gays kick ass.



Intense, slow? I'd say more confusing due to the perspective the film is shot in, it took me more than one viewing to understand what was going on, although I didn't want a repeat performance of either pork pie head or the Belucci rape scenes, so I skipped them, too much for my liking lol.
