  1. Little bit amazed at the amount of kudos this film has received. Having finally watched it, it's just sentimental Hollywood rubbish. Clooney's worst movie since his Batman.
  2. Watched this on the plane yesterday. Holy shit it's bad. About 90% of it is very boring exposition. The rest is ersatz squalor, crap cockney accents and terrible, terrible acting (though given the quality of the script I guess the actors can hardly be blamed). Saoirse Ronan looks nice is about the only vaguely positive thing that can be said about it (if mild objectification of women can be considered positive...).

    Bad Meals

    It was about 16 quid with a beer - for a bowl of noodles! And flavourless is the only way I can possibly describe it. I'm trying to think of something similarly bland that I have eaten and I am struggling. Which is the precise opposite of what a tonkotsu should be. EDIT: Got it. It tasted like misou soup.

    Bad Meals

    So I went here last week: http://bonedaddiesramen.com/ It was awful. I don't know how it's possible to make a flavourless soup from pork bones, but they managed it, and the noodles felt like they'd been in the soup for too long. I guess the lightly boiled egg was okay, but at about twice the price I'd expect to pay, I felt cheated after eating a meal that was about a tenth as delicious as I would have liked. Apparently the chef is from Nobu or something... I amazed that anybody who has eaten proper, greasy, fatty, tasty Tonkotsu Ramen could be capable of being happy to serve such a monstrous blandity. Yuk.
  5. You can, unless you've got shit in your eyes or you've never seen a moving image before or something.
  6. Frustratingly I have run out of negatives for the day so I feel compelled to reply to this: I was expecting some kind of entertainment. I was expecting it to live up to the goosebumpy moments in the trailer or, even if it didn't, to provide a modicum of popcorny spectacle. I foolishly expected some level of character, and plot, and even a smidgeon of dialogue that ventured beyond clunkily verbose exposition. So unless you were expecting nothing more than some moving images on a screen - a phenomenon that, in the modern world is so ubiquitous as to be reasonably unremarkable, and certainly so ubiquitous that, when confronted with it I do not consider the need to simply sit and stare for several hours - I think it is fair to describe it as holy-shit bad.
  7. Finally got round to watching this. Holy shit it's bad, isn't it? How did they fill such a marathon running time with such a wafer-thin plot and barely-sketched characters?
