The original Flight of The Phoenix is freaking awesome.

I haven't watched the new one, anyone see it? Any good?

I have, it was okay. Never saw it again though. The old one was better.

Saw a new trailer for The Iceman. Looks awesome. Michael Shannon is killing it these days.

An Honest Injun Review of Upside Down
(No Spoilers, sort of)



The main question I ask myself after a film is usually I am glad that I saw this? Of course, the really, really good films don’t prompt this question because I’m all caught up in the emotion or grand finale or whatever, and that question doesn’t occur because my mind is either racing or basking.

I did, however, ask myself this question after watching Upside Down. The answer, I would like to be reasonably quick to point out, is yes, I am glad I saw this film. It has some really good moments and some of the shots of people with different gravities interacting are very good.

Ultimately, it did let me down though. It has a brilliant concept which lends itself to comments on the human condition, and it did deal with them manfully, but I just felt a bit eh? during the last few minutes.

It’s like the director (also the writer) suddenly got bored of making a sci-fi film about 86.3% of the way through and decided to just wrap up the love story that drives the film and fuck everything else off. All the science goes out of the fiction toward the end and that left me slightly disappointed. Plus there are a few other moments which were written poorly, though I pretty much think that about every film I see. More despair could have been coaxed out of the actors is one major gripe. Jim Sturgess, Kirsten Dunst and Timothy Spall all did well enough, but only Spall came close to capturing the despair that the characters occasionally felt.

All of the bad moments are justified by the wonderful toilet scene though. It’s just a shame an equivalent didn’t happen later in the film.

5/10 for the story. 7.5/10 for the visualisation of the bizarre world. 9/10 for originality of concept, if not quite executed as well as might have been.

That's what I've been hearing. Hopefully it'll come out soon enough. Dying to check it out.

Ha, touche.

I'll believe that. Craig has something about him that makes him a great Bond while also separating him from the pack.

It's funny, remember when Craig was first announced as Bond and it seemed like everyone went up in arms? People were saying stuff like "Bond not blonde" and there were websites with petitions and stuff. This was in the UK so I don't know about the US, but looking back now it's ridiculous. He's easily one of the best Bond's, maybe the best.

I certainly didn't care at the time. Although I don't think I was much of a Bond fan like I am today. That probably played a part into it.

Pointless gripe as it is. It's almost like someone would complain about Connery being Bond b/c he's not English. It's like c'mon. Craig is great. Only 3 movies in and he's already a contender for the "best bond ever" argument, imo.

I don't find the love for Connery, tbhayley. He's good, but I'll pick a few others over him.

I've said this before and I still expect the usual backlash.

Bronsan was the perfect Bond for me. He would be terrible if Bond was as "real" and "gritty" as it is today because that screams Daniel Craig but in the 1990's when i was growing up, he was perfect. He was suave, sophisticated and pretty badass when he needed to be. I still think Goldeneye is a very underrated Bond film.
