Never seen Clerks
, but Withnail
I liked. Saw Memento
the other day - fantastic.
After seeing it some years ago, I got a DVD of Nikita
imported from France - an excellent film.
I've become pretty disillusioned with big name blockbusters. Looking back over the films I've seen in the past few years, I realise that most of them I regretted going to.XXX
was preposterous and contained glaring errors and inconsistencies - not trivial ones you understand, I remember one scene where a blue car drove along the left bank of a river, got to a bridge and turned LEFT onto it - and turned RED at the same time! Signs
was insultingly racist. Spider Man
lacked any kind of plot and the entire story could have been done in ten minutes. Star Wars
was all hype. Black Hawk Down
was also racist. I thought Goldeneye
was bad, but Die Another Day
completely broke the Bond films, and I hope they never make another again. Shame really.
Curiously enough, Nemesis
was a terrible film as well, but I found it strangely enjoyable. Also, the two Lord of the Rings
films were excellent, and I can't wait for the third. I haven't seen a single animated film that I haven't totally enjoyed. Maybe if they got Pixar to do the next Bond film it would be an improvement.
