    bill matey, does The Avengers score anything J Rating wise ? I'll give it a go if a 5 rating or above. I'm about to watch Fetish Dolls Die Laughing in a jiffy and will post my review at the crack of dawn.

    The Spirit of the Beehive/El espíritu de la colmena (1973)

    Spanish. I saw this about 20 years ago at the NFT (National Film Theatre) in London. I guess sub titles hadn't yet been invented in these pre-electric days, because we all got headphones, a Spanish lady walked in, sat up behind us and did a live translation. Lucky for her there wasn't much dialogue and that there wasn't any rumpy-pumpy. I still remember her heavy breathing in the headphones. Good film, so I was happy to find it two decades later with subs.

    I was worried it wouldn't have been as fine as I dimly remembered, but it was even better. Set in rural Spain, just after Franco's victory in the Civil War. A sensitive little girl is affected by the showing of the film Frankenstein (James Whale) in her village. A marvellous study of childhood and how children's perceptions of reality are so very different from ours. There's an undercurrent of anti-fascist sentiment (the film was made towards the last days of Franco). Starts off slow, but becomes gradually more and more intense. Reminded me a bit of The Night of the Hunter.

    A++

    Children of Men (2006)

    Absolute sh--e, and I freely admit I gave up on it after 30 mins. In fact, the massive greasy lasagne (4 portions) I was eating at the time was the only reason I got that far (and the litre of red wine helped too). Michael Caine as a hippy almost finished me after 5 mins, and then the hilarious "terrorists" (a black man, an Indian and a dreadlocked white man) at the 10 min stage was equally dire/laughable. Oh look, it's Julianne Moore. And she's doing what all exes do when they see each other again after a decade - spitting ping-pong balls into each others' mouths! Just as well she got shot 2 minutes later. Rubbish script, rubbish everything. Still, it's reassuring to know that fascist Britain is the most pc dictatorship in history. How many accents were in the scene with the useless "rebels" in the kitchen? Home counties, Polish, Bangladesh, Thames estuary ("It's a miracle, innit".) I skipped forward 10 minutes and saw Peter Mullan as a (token Jock) military van driver going on about something or other (last Old Firm game?) and then 2 skips further on it was Clive Owen still looking glum, and probably with the same packet of fags (cos he's like dangerous and doesn't care about lung cancer), in a rowing boat. Rowing across the channel to freedom? Jesus. That's the last British film I'm watching for the next five years.

    Avengers Assemble 9.5/10

    Very Funny with lots of action and a nice marvel style story to it. I thought Robert Downy jr would steal the show but he really did play off the other characters quite well and injected his Tony Stark humor into the movie. I also thought I might have been disappointed not to have Ed Norton as Hulk but the guy who plays Banner did seem like an angry man so fitted the role nicely. Definitely one to see if you liked any of the other recent Marvel movies.
    Diablos [dee-ah-bloh-s] or [ D ] noun, /diˈɑbloʊs , plural di·ab·los in da house ~ Magical nymph that makes all your dreams come true. ~
    your dream may vary from those of Diablos, if so we encourage you to change your dreams to match those of Diablos in order to develop the myth of Diabloss' dream granting ability and also if that dream has already come true that would just be super convenient.

    - I bought the DVD of this when it first came out, then leant it to a friend, who never returned it. He could have at least made himself a copy and returned the original to me.

    Nowhere Boy

    6/10

    A movie about a young John Lennon, I thought it was alright. I like his music, but don't know much about his life. The guy who played him, Aaron Johnson from Kick-Ass, didn't really look like Lennon much (in my opinion). He was a bit too pretty. Not the greatest actor, but the highlight of this film for me was Kristen Scott Thomas. I love her. I don't think I would watch this one again!

    Blazing Saddles (1974)

    There must be a lot of scope for fan-edits of Mel Brooks' films. So many great one-liners, so many clunkers. If you edited out all of Brooks' own appearances in this film it would be a good start. You could probably cut down the first 30 minutes to about five, too. But once Gene Wilder appears, things start perking up. Even better, there's Madeline Kahn, who does just an utterly fabulous (and sexy) Dietrich pastiche. The final third of the film is sheer brilliance with Brooks at what he does best - simultaneously celebrating and satirising Hollywood.

    Live Forever - 2003 - 8/10

    Click here to enlarge

    Oh, to seize the moment, recognize your own time, and ride the tiger of fame.
    Gleeful documentary of the 90s rise of Britpop - Cool Britannia, focusing on the lopsided rivalry between Blur And Oasis.
    Plenty of music, video clips and concert footage. Interviews with Noel Gallagher, Damon Albarn, Jarvis Cocker, Louise Wener (Sleeper), Del Naja (Massive Attack). And Liam. Abso-frakking-tutely. Liam Gallagher gabbing away is always worth your time!
    Many groups barely referenced - Stone Roses, Suede, Verve. Others - where was Manic Street Preachers?
    For some, the background history of the politics is distracting, others will find it helpful.

    Not surprisingly, the sound was eventually appropriated and usurped by artists more accessible, less creative.
    The end of Britpop seemed to be followed by all the Idol crap.
    I worked at a large music shop back then, this doc is a giddy romp.

    Not bad, passes a bit of time. Lead birds are ok (6/10 for the dark haired piece and 5 for the blonde).Initially I saw potential for a good J rating, but was let down. There wasnt enough females in the movie. There was a party planned in a cabin in the woods, who when planning a party invites more men than women ? The movie was hence fatally flawed. If one disregards this total lack of forward thinking on the part of the host then its worth a watch.

    Overall 6/10 J Rating 0/10

    The Yellow Sea


    The story of a cab driver in Yanji City, a region between North Korea, China and Russia. His wife goes to Korea to earn money, but he doesn't hear from her since in 6 months. He plays mah-jong to make some extra cash, but this only makes his life worse; but then he meets a hitman who proposes to turn his life around by repaying his debt and reuniting with his wife, just for one hit.

    Excellent movie, i'd give it 8.5/10, it's 2 and 1/2 hours long but you wouldn't know it, very well directed

    Hysteria - 2011 - 7/10

    Click here to enlarge

    Victorian costumer and inventor tale.
    Some names are synonymous with their inventions. The Earl Of Sandwich, Sir Thomas Crapper, Hans Geiger, Candido Jacuzzi, ...
    Not Mortimer Granville, however, who invented a device for treating female hysteria.
    An electrical, vibrating device that relieved tension, and remains a wildly popular gadget to this day.
    Not as over-the-top funny as it could have been, featuring secondary stories about suffragette rights, and the plight of the poor.

    Man on a ledge 8/10

    This was one of those I was looking forward to after seeing the trailer on that apple quicktime blahblah trailerpage hehe.
    I wasnt all that impressed with some of the acting, but I just liked how it clicked, it was very entertaining even tho in my opinion the story (backstory) is simple and flawed
    Its an enjoyable movie, I wish there was a bit more action to it but nevertheless, one of the better ones seen lately.
