RE: Rate the Last Film You've Seen
Currently watching a film called Colin. I'm only halfway through it. Been not bad so far.
Its a low budget film shot using a camcorder.

Its unusual in that it shows things from the point of view of a zombie as he walks around London during a zombie apocalypse.

Behold the power of the force!

Re-watch it sober dude.

Ok, re-watched it. I was still high, just decided to pay better attention this time.
I have decided to move it from 2 Netflix stars to 3 Netflix. Mostly because I want more action movies suggested by Netflix. The story isn't too bad. The driving scenes are pretty cool. The music sucks and the title credits look like they were using MiamiVice Font. I think what keeps this from being epic is it's sooooooo damn slow. For a movie called Drive, it doesn't go very fast.


And a technical complaint...the dialog was so quiet I had to crank the volume. The music and car engines were on the opposite end of the spectrum, however. Dodgy

Cool, this is streaming on Netflix so I'll give it a try. Camcorder movies bug me, though. Cloverfield made me so nauseous that I had to keep my eyes closed for a lot of the film. Confused

Boy Wonder.
This film surprised me. I thought it was going to be some sort of cheap assed tv version of a bad copy of Kickass. There actually is a pretty good story with an interesting character or two. Gave it 3 out of 5 Netflix stars. Not awesome, but I liked it. Thumbsup

Watched the new "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" with Gary Oldman last night.

Excellent cast, the mood of the piece was true, BUT it suffered from not being able to tell a complex story in the time allotted. If I hadn't read the book or seen the BBC series with Alec Guinness, I would have had a hard time following it.

The BBC series was 7 parts, about 6 hours. And it had Sir Alec.

I liked it as well. I didn't know there was a BBC series. Obiwan Kenobi would make a good spy. Thumbsup

It is a very old series (I remember it when I was young). A quick Google says that it was 1979, 5 years after the publication of the book. It will be very dated, watching it now (more so than the film).

Oh. Thanks for the warning. It would be like going back and watching old Dr. Who episodes. Quaint and all, but I'd rather watch the updated version.

I recently watched the Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood series (after reading the manga like a year or two a go). I liked it way better than the OVA (cuz I read the manga, duh), so I may be a tad biased.

But this was awesome. 5/5 biatches. Characters were compelling, plot was identical to the manga, and the voice acting was amazing.

I remember the the Beeb version most vividly. I read all Le Carre novels after that. Loved 'em. Especially the Smiley trilogy.

I saw it again around 6 years ago (DVD) and it didn't look dated, it was more like a period piece.

I agree with the review of the movie too. Nice attempt in the limited timeframe. Better than most attempts to get his novels on the big screen.... of which Russia House was probably the best and Constant Gardener also not bad.
