I'd say a classic from the mind of Tim Burton.


That's a solid film but a bit unrealistic IMO, I couldn't rate it that high myself.

Lol @ "unrealistic". I gave you a funny bump for that post. :-D

Ugh I just watched Saw 5. Is it a compliment to say it was better than 4? :-P What a shame.

Afro Samurai: Resurrection 6/10

Took me a while to get into it. Maybe if I saw the series I would have been more into it. Sure looked cool and had a great soundtrack but I wasn't crazy about it.

This is England - 6/10

A somewhat fascinating look into what skinhead culture was like in the UK in the early 80's, which by then being a skinhead was a catch-all stereotype for being a white supremacist (not all skinheads were of course). It's also an interesting slice of life peek of England under Thatcher's PM tenure, rising unemployment, massive immigration, and the Falklands War. The story revolves around a 12 year-old (who can be mistaken for 6 in my eyes) who finds acceptance in an older group of skinheads, only to find it wasn't all just parties, making out, and drugs.

First 20-30 minutes or so were pretty fantastic and lighthearted and even when the film took on a darker tone, it was quite fascinating. Midway through, the plot runs a bit thin and any character/story depth developed, really had proven to be just extraneous and the movie was just more predictable. There are a couple of characters who disappointingly take a back seat and never make an appearance again, which is just odd. Other than that, it's a straightforward story with the two leads developing well and the soundtrack was well chosen, but This is England could've been much more. I wouldn't compare it to American History X, but if you liked American History X, this is worth a view.

just watched Kill Bill 1 and 2 on blu-ray. such incredibly awesome movies. I give a slight nod to #1 because it has quite a bit more action.

Kill Bill 1: 9.5
Kill Bill 2: 9
