Animal House is poo, avoid that (no idea how it got in the charts, the only commendable part of it is the stellar casting of Mickey Rourke as a lady man convict). Wrong Turn is a good killer/horror type film, but if you hate horror then that's no good. My surprise rental of goodness was a brit film called Pure, which has an astounding cast and some amazing kid actors in it. It's all about the effect heroin has on a small estate, and specifically on this young Cockney kid. Kiera Knightly doesn't make the most convincing cockney lass, but the rest of it was really good.

Animal FACTORY ffs.

Animal house is a class film. Factory on the other hand was the most boring film event since k-19 the widowmaker.

Films to rent imo (recent ones that is):

Whale Rider
Buffalo Soldiers (if you haven't seen it)
Old School (should be shit but is actually funny)
Veronica Guerin (Blanchet is as good as ever)
Second hand lions (looks good but haven't seen it)
Belleville Rendez-vous (Animated) (looks wierd but good)

Wrong turn i'm not too sure of tbh. I'll probably rent it anyway.

Stay away from:

Underworld
The In-Laws (ABYSMAL!)
And probably most of the other new release shit.

Tomb raider 2 was a bit pants.. but my hairdresser was in it for the 1st 10 minutes as one of the greek boat owners who gets his throat cut ;)

Just bought animal house the other wek.. hadnt seen it in about 10 years, wasnt as funny as I remembered but still has its moments. :)

Just bought a few more movies to watch this weekend...

Deer Hunter (havnt seen it yet but its one of those films that all men should see I have been told.. fits in the category of Deliverance where at some point it will come up in conversation down the pub)

saving private ryan (never watched it all the way through.. but remembered that the 1st 30 minutes is quite entertaining)

first blood (the best of te rambo movies imo.. seen it a few times but always enjoy it)

Once upon a time in mexico (havnt seen it yet.. and tbh havnt seen the other 2 films either.. not sure if this can be watched as a stand alone film or not but will give it a try)

Deer Hunter & Saving private Ryan are both class movies so is Animal House :)

Beck if you havent seen Band of Brothers yet then PLEASE get them and watch them. They are mini series in the mould of SPR and they are ACE! :)

Ok I watched Deer Hunter last night.. I was a bit pished but still. I wasnt too impressed...

It seemed to spend way too long at the pre-nam stage.. wedding etc although I see the relevance of the hunting. Then suddenly we see Mike (deniro) waking up in nam and a con is wiping out the local villages.. he smokes the fool with his handy flame thrower then Nick (Walken) walks up and says 'hey mike!' and Mike doesnt really know whats happening.

From this I presumed he had been out in battle for a while and Nick and co possibly thought he was dead and Mike was a bit messed up from it.

Anyway.. suddenly we see the 3 friends all in a pit.. captured by the con while ppl around em are playing russian roullette. Hmm, ok.. Ill let my imagination decide how they were all caught, its no biggie.

I liked the roulette scene especially when Mike started shooting. Anyway they all escape and get seperated.

Back in Saigon.. Nick is a bit messed up and cant remember his parents DOB.. he then sets off on his new career as a russian rouletee expert with that french bloke. I realise that he and deniro figured out a trick to it but I dont think that trick works every time! But still.. I think Nick was loosing it and anyone who would take him in he was gunna go with.

Mike goes home and gets with the girl who he loves who actually loves Nick.. We see Mike a bit messed up on the hunt. Steves wife seems very messed up in bed when Mike goes to visit?? Is this just because Steve had his legs amputated and his also messed up? It didnt really explain this much.

Mike goes back to Siagon looking for Nick.. this was quite good.. Nick is really messed up and can harldy remember Mike.. they play each other at RR and Nick starts to remember as they 'click' at each others heads... Nick blows his own head off.. again quite emotional and good.

Mike then goes home and they bury Nick and the end.

Anyway.. I can appreciate the emotions and story of these friends having to goto war and the effects of that. The whole thing just seemed slow to me and not really that great.. I would say it wasnt too bad but I can see that alot of ppl would not like it at all. Unless Im missing something?

Hmmm.
