    I'm glad to see such a great rating. It is a film that does divide opinion but for me it is Tarkovsky's masterpiece.

    If your cinema is showing Tarkovsky's Mirror then you really must go and see it.

    A Hard Day seemed to neatly sum up the problems with Korean thrillers at the moment. Any rational plot took a back seat to sequences the director thought would be cool.

    I can heartily recommend Alamar - a simple yet beautiful little film about the fleeting relationship between a father and his son.
  6. Football thread 2015/16 season.

    I'm not sure what is more shocking - my team actually winning the league or cheering a Chelsea goal. What a magnificent and surreal season.
  7. Films on TV: 23-29 April

    It's great if you are able to buy into the central relationship. There are some great films on this week, particularly Duke of Burgundy and Blue is the Warmest Colour.
  8. Films on TV: 26 March - 1 April

    Lilting, airing on Friday, is excellent.
  9. Films on TV: 12-18 March

    Nice to see you picked Neighbouring Sounds as one of your films of the week.
  10. When the likes of NEG post on the forum I take exception to this comment! Despite the hyperbole of my initial post (they range from average to poor)I still stand by it because, despite Mad Max 2, back in 2007 I don't think his filmography was that impressive. I never enjoyed his children's films and found his Hollywood output underwhelming. Fury Road was brilliant though.

    You're quite right, it's not. This movie is better than all of the Police Academy films combined.

    I only bothered to guess because of CactuaBill's comment. Apologies for the crap quality, it's a grab from the YouTube trailer.
