I love you. <3I know Numbers will get a kick out this - he's probably seen it 100 times :E
Taegukgi (aka Brotherhood)
Moving, very realistic and gritty war drama set in the Korean War following two brothers pressganged into the defence of Pusan with the South Korean Army that captures the brutality of civil war beautifully. Honestly I don't think I've ever seen a more depressing (in a good way) movie - really tugs at the heart strings at times. Although Jin Seok was so irritating that you kind of had to wonder why the older brother bothered at all Great movie - highly recommended.
I think people who did not like this film were expecting something along the lines of SOTD or Hot Fuzz, eg, Peggs over the top and quite wacky at times comedy, when this turned out to be a rather more straight laced comedy, people were let down.Run Fat Boy Run 6.5/10
Simon Pegg should not do any movies without Nick Frost.
Sure,there's some funny bits here and there.Like Dylan Moran's butt and bath scenes and David Walliams "Mr Mann" esque character from Little Britain.Apart from that, it's pretty mediocre.David Schwimmer should stick to his usual gig.
Playing wimpy and whiny sitcom characters.
I can understand the speech bit, but saying the direction is lousy is pretty out there without elaboratingNo Country for Old Men 7/10
Great performance by Javier Bardem.Definitely Oscar worthy.
Besides that,the direction is pretty lousy and unsatisfying compared to Coen Brother's
Maybe not lousy.How about poor?The fact is, if it wasn't for Javier Bardem's and Josh Brolin's performance this wouldn't have been noticed nor nominated at all.The Coen's are getting pretty stale these days if you ask me.I can understand the speech bit, but saying the direction is lousy is pretty out there without elaborating
But you still haven't elaborated as to why their direction is poor.Maybe not lousy.How about poor?The fact is, if it wasn't for Javier Bardem's and Josh Brolin's performance this wouldn't have been noticed nor nominated at all.The Coen's are getting pretty stale these days if you ask me.
Look at their past three movies.They can still get a good performance out of an actor though.
I give them that.
