I saw a JOHN CARPENTER DISCUSSION and then that led to me reading back a few pages so.... MASSIVE POST TIME.
Skyfall is the best British Film Ever.
Absolute dafty, absolute blazing fucking dafty, I mean I get you're a mark for the film but... really? Really? My lord.

Brazil, Naked, the Wicker Man, Life of Bryan, Trainspotting, the Third Man, the Italian Job, Dead Mans Shoes, Saturday Night + Sunday Morning. That barely scratches the surface,theres shitloads of classics.
BRAZIL, fuck I love Brazil, in fact fuck I love everything on that list, original Italian Job blew my 8 year old mind when I first saw it, Life Of Brian crushed the 9 year old one.
How dare no one mention Hot Fuzz!
Because it's not even a top 5 British comedy film (Life Of Brian, Holy Grail, The Ladykillers, The Man In The White Suit, IN THE LOOP, Shaun Of The Dead, The Lavender Hill Mob and most likely a few others would all at least go in front of it for me)
Lesbian Vampire Killers.

Oh buggery time for me to do a mad John Carpenter ranking
1. The Thing
3. Prince Of Darkness
4. Big Trouble In Little China
5. Escape From New York
6. They Live
7. In The Mouth Of Madness
8. Assault On Precinct 13
9. The Fog
10. The Ward
11. Escape From LA
13. That one with Chevy Chase that I can't even be bothered to look up online to find the title of
15. Ghost Of Mars
Then there's the three TV movies (Elvis, Masters Of Horror: Cigarette Burns and Masters Of Horror: Pro-Life) which... fuck knows how I'd rank them and Darkstar which I still haven't watched but really should because John Carpenter and Dan O'Bannon together intrigues the hell out of me.
God I love the Big Trouble In Little China music video
I watched Monsters Inc today. It's absolutely glorious. Don't remember it being that good. Easily top 5 Pixar films. For me, Pixar have 5 near masterpieces under their belt which is pretty incredible.
Monster's Inc. is still pretty damn great

So what I'm saying is yes.
Yes if you want to watch literally the 2nd worst film I've ever, ever saw (2nd worst, Rob Zombie's Halloween II is the worst), which takes every good part of the original and molests it's corpse, ruining characters left, right and center and just being genuinely awful, and not even in a mildly funny Dream House way (Fuck Dream House by the way, possible rambling review forthcoming)
I said I was going to watch Escape From New York and god fucking damn it I did.
It was really good. Not one of Carpenters best, but it's loads of fun and Russell is boss as usual.
Did you enjoy OX BAKER getting a board with nails in the back of his head? The worst thing about New York is that they ran out of money during the final chase so it kinda... lacks something, that and it's a chase between Ernest Borginine and Issac Hayes which is simultaneously dumb as shit and AMAZING.

Die Hard 1 is the best most likely, but I've watched Die Hard 3 more than any other film in existence, it just makes me... smile really. God it's good.
Oh fuck it, by the end of tonight expect a long, rambling rant on the film Dream House people, I need to exorcise this demon from my eternal soul.
