The Wind That Shakes the Barley (2006)




Ireland in the early twenties. An armed rebellion goes up against the British during the Irish War of Independence. 2 brothers on opposite sides of the fence join forces after witnessing some terrible atrocities by the infamous "Black and Tans" soldiers.


A very powerful movie never shy to show the inhumane tactics used in warfare. The cinematography is in short amazing, and the acting, especially the lead Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins) was fantastic. I did have some trouble understanding the accents and had to go back a few times to know what was said but it's not so bad. The only real complaint I had with this movie is that it takes a real sympathetic look at the IRA side and the British are portrayed as brutalizing monsters. Now I'm not gonna pretend to know the history here but I'm sure both sides had their share of ruthless actions. The political stuff was really interesting and never boring, I found myself wanting to know more about it after it was done. Overall a wonderfully crafted story with an incredible realistic feel to it.

8/10

The Perfect Storm

This is a movie based on true events about an incredible storm that hits New England putting alot of fishermen in danger.

Great movie as far as I'm concerned. I absolutely loved it. George Cloony and Mark Wahlberg give excellent performances.

8.9 out of 10

There Will Be Blood (2007)



A story about family, greed, religion, and oil, centered around a turn-of-the-century prospector in the early days of the business.

PT Anderson delivers perhaps his best work with "There Will Be Blood". Unlike "Magnolia", the film's daunting runtime is not very daunting whilst watching it. All acting in the film was solid, even the work of the child actors. Daniel Day-Lewis in particular delivered a truly phenomenal performance, capturing the power of greed, fear, insanity, and comedy simultaneously, at many points throughout the film. I can't say enough about DDL's performance. At no point does the time period distract from the power of the film. Sometimes period pieces cannot be appreciated because they delve too deep into historical details -- turning the experience into more of a documentary than a narrative set in the past. This is not the case for "There Will Be Blood", as human interactions are the focus of the film. Johnny Greenwood's chilling score is very strong, benefiting from the elegant minimalism that he show's in the band Radiohead. The cinematography is also spectacular. Robert Elswit beautifully captures the essence of the environment and the tension amongst the characters. All in all, this is truly a perfectly crafted film.

Overall: 10/10. Another one of my all-time favorites.

Completely agree...everything about it (his manerisms, his look, his voice) is perfect.
His voice in particular is out of this world. The fact that the movie spends a good 20 minutes of silence before letting him speak in that heavy, seductive, rolling voice and grab you for good speaks volumes.

--------------------

Hard Candy
I've had this on my drive forever but i only just got round to watching it.

This is basically the story of a teenage girl who gets to know a 30-something photographer in a chat room and arranges to meet him in person.
Needless to say (this being a thriller and all), the meeting goes way wrong, and a brilliant thriller kicks off that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
The whole thing is basically one big giant character study, with the photographer never clearly being declared a pedophile - you never know if he is guilty or innocent until the very last few frames, and it could go both ways.
Patrick Wilson does a great job with a difficult part, but the movie belongs to Ellen Page...
If her Juno made you want to hang out with her all day long and chat about whatever, her Hayley will throw you out of the water and freak you out for good.
The scariest part, is that Hayley isn't in fact that different from Juno...i wonder how Juno would react to her friend being killed by a pederast and being convinced she knew who did it (again, we don't know if she's right)...

Highly Recommended This is class-A stuff right here. Great story, good script, and two great performances, one of which is absolutely brilliant.


----------------------------------------------
Ratings:
Avoid like the plague. Thou shalt always make fun of and berate this flick with all thy heart.
Not Worth It "It" being a cinema ticket. If it's a dvd a friend brought over for a night with mates, might as well.
Worth A Look Nothing special, but a decent night out at the movies.
Recommended A good movie.
Highly Recommended A really good movie.
MUST SEE~! If this was a wrestling match, it'd be ***** of Greatness.

^Love that movie, Ellen's performance was much better in that then in Juno I thought. It was weird watching HC, everyone I know whose seen it were sort of rooting for the pedo or at least feeling sympathetic towards him...

Daredevil:

Marvel movie about a boy who becomes blind but gains super senses. After his father dies he vows a promise for justice when he goes to take down Bullseye and the Kingpin.

This was a decent superhero film. I felt like this could of had a lot more character development but it's fast pace and action made up for it's lackluster dialog/characters. I felt this movie was very underrated and was dumped on because Ben Affleck's name was attached to it. It's not best superhero adaptation by a long shot but it's worth a view if you interested in the comic or interested in the movie at all.

7.0/10

Same here.
I know the Oscars really mean jack shit, but getting nominated for Juno and not for this is unacceptable.
I mean, Juno was a good performance but it wasn't mindblowing. It was well done, but it wasn't anything special.
First few minutes of Hard Candy, when they're in the coffe house...damn. She has the innocent/overeducated/major league creepy thing down to an art. And then she goes into full psychotic mode and blows you away.

Well a lot of the oscars have to do is about some film buzz, they didn't even pick a great movie this year No Country For Old Men was good but wasn't anywhere near as good as some of the other movies they have pickedi n the past.

Exactly. There Will Be Blood was a better movie than No Country For Old Men, but No Country had more buzz.
