  1. If anyone has any other film suggestions post in the thread and I will update the first post. Certain films have links to their respective IMDB pages. Black = Terrestrial and Freeview : Blue = Pay for Channels (e.g. Sky Movies) Star Ratings: ***** Masterpiece: **** Highly Recommended: *** Decent: ** Disappointing: * Awful: ‘(AVOID)’ Even Uwe Boll would be embarrassed with this shit: */***** So bad it's good NB: All films without star ratings are those that I have not watched. Terrestrial/Freeview Film of the Week True Romance (1993) - 5USA Saturday @ 10pm Last year I educated my nieces in the films of Quentin Tarantino (bar Death Proof, nobody deserves that) and it was quite nice going through all his films again, some ageing better than expected and others feeling a little dated. The biggest surprise was that his best film wasn't even a film he directed, but it still has all his hallmarks. From a script perspective I think True Romance is his most complete work, it has the great characters and dialogue you associate with Tarantino but also the heart that is missing from much of his other work. The cast is sensational, Tony Scott has arguably never been better and it references Malick's Badlands so it gets an extra bonus point from me. Satellite/Cable Film of the Week Hanna (2011) – Sky Premiere Friday @ 8pm I can't be sure but I think this might be brilliant. The reason for the uncertainty is because it is very much a marmite film to the point that I think opinion may change considerably on repeat viewings. I totally understand why people won't like this and for that reason it is impossible to recommend as I would hate to get somebody's hopes up only for them to be disappointed by the end results. It is also tricky to explain why I enjoyed it so much because I have a feeling that when I try and explain it in words I will begin to over analyse it and begin to lose the magic. It is one of the most schizophrenic summer films I've seen in many years, often a schizophrenic tone is a weakness but they go so wholeheartedly with throwing so many things into the mix that is ends up miraculously working. It is almost to the point where they have deliberately decided to go in the complete opposite direction of logical casting and story telling. In black and white that sounds like a criticism but much like the mish-mash of tones when everything is 'wrong' everything slowly starts to appear very right. Joe Wright is not an obvious choice for this film but he manages to add his trademark visual flourishes whilst still not completely losing sight of the fact this is an action film at heart. It is genuinely beautiful in places, and despite it having a number of visual styles it still fits together brilliantly. The story at a basic level is very simple with hackneyed devices and twists everyone will see coming. They are faults that would normally annoy me but because the film has so much charm, and is also strangely subversive (for a mainstream summer movie), that they really don't matter in the grand scheme of things. It throws in fairy tale references, sometimes very explicitly and sometimes more cleverly, as well as resembling a twisted Wim Wenders road movie and coming of age drama. It shouldn't be able to juggle so many elements, and if I'm honest at times it looks like it is going to teeter over under this muddled tone, but it always manages to pull itself away from the brink. This unevenness will put people off but it certainly helps keep it interesting. The cast are, by and large, against type but each one is perfect in their own strange way. Ronan has always been a good actress but you wouldn't necessarily say she was ideal casting for a trained killer yet she is perfectly adept at those hard hitting scenes as well as the fish out of water comedy and more emotional family moments. She is full of knowledge but totally unable to use that information in a world that is not in a book. Likewise Bana is very good as the protective father and Blanchett hams it up but is a great choice as a wicked witch figure. Tom Hollander is not only the most unusual casting but his character and circle of friends have seemingly been dropped in to the film from a completely different story. Yet, once again, they work. I'm not sure how but they do, they are comedic yet threatening and just as off-kilter as the rest of the film. The Chemical Brothers score was fantastic too, I'm not sure it will work as well without the images on screen but with the movie it gave the action sequences real energy (which was also helped by some interesting editing). Odd, confused but utterly captivating, I'd love to recommend it but I'm not even sure I will like it next time around.

  2. I was expecting it to be bad based on the pretty terrible trailer and the fact it is a female sketch show but this is even worse than Horne and Corden. It starts really bad, gets progressively worse and then John Barrowman appears and it sinks to a new unimaginable low.

Black = Terrestrial and Freeview : Blue = Pay for Channels (e.g. Sky Movies) Star Ratings: ***** Masterpiece: **** Highly Recommended: *** Decent: ** Disappointing: * Awful: ‘(AVOID)’ Even Uwe Boll would be embarrassed with this shit: */***** So bad it's good NB: All films without star ratings are those that I have not watched. Terrestrial/Freeview Film of the Week A Prophet (2009) – Film4 Friday @ 11pm Director Jacques Audiard was always going to struggle to follow-up The Beat That My Heart Skipped, but he has managed it in quite spectacular style. The prison genre is such a tricky thing to get right as there isn't a great deal of scope to be wildly imaginative within the confines that the setting dictates. But Audiard has managed it despite the film hitting the familiar prison beats. What the film does so masterfully is paint an epic story on a small canvas. Malik's rise from prison nobody to top dog is convincing and engrossing. His baptism of fire, the murder of another inmate, is one of the best scenes of 2010 and whilst it gives him status within the prison it deeply affects him too. In fact it leads to the most contentious element of the film as the dead man returns to him throughout the film like Banquo's ghost in Macbeth. It is the one element I thought I'd hate but it is used quite beautifully here. All the performances are brilliant. Tahar Rahim as Malik is the heart and soul of the picture and his unshowy performance is a triumph as you care about him but are still repelled by his actions. Niels Arestrup as César is equally great as the crime boss whose power is slowly slipping away. The direction is assured with the confines of the prison feeling claustrophobic whilst the odd moments of outdoor reprise are like a huge breath of fresh air. Satellite/Cable Film of the Week The Witches (1989) – Sky Family Thursday @ 11.35pm The stories of Roald Dahl have had a mixed transition to the silver screen. For every Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory we've had Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. This week we get the chance to see two of the best adaptations - Fantastic Mr. Fox getting its terrestrial debut and The Witches getting another outing on Sky. Nicolas Roeg's The Witches is a little gem of a movie, and whilst some of the changes from the source material were unnecessary it still manages to capture the fun and creepiness of the book. It helps that Angelica Huston is on fine form as are the make-up department as the true form of the witches really is rather frightening (for a children's film).

  6. Welcome to RLLMUK's favourite TV show thread. The first category up is TV Drama, anything is permitted be it a one-off special, mini-series, long running series or short but they must have originally been commissioned for television (they can be commissioned anywhere in the world and do not have to have been broadcast in the UK). TV movies are also allowed, to make sure your choice is eligible check out IMDb as they will say if the film is a TV movie or not. There will be some natural crossover in the way the categories have been split so I will leave it up to the individual where they want to place their choices (for example, Doctor Who could go in either TV Drama of Children's TV, or, if they wish, both). Here are some websites that might help in picking your list: BFI TV 100, Britain's best sitcom, 100 greatest Kids' TV shows, TV Cream. Please order your list in the following fashion: 1. This is my favourite programme 2. This is my next favourite 3. And so on 4. You get the idea ... 20. No more programmes after this The order of the categories will be as follows (dates may vary): Drama TV (3rd March - 24th March) Children's TV (16th March - 6th April) Non-Fiction TV (31st March - 20th April) Comedy TV (13th April - 4th May) Please use this topic for lists AND discussion. Thanks and best of luck with your selections.

  9. With Chosty's Favourite Films of the Decade topics coming to an end this week I was wondering if it was time we turned our attention to television. This thread is to gauge general interest in the concept (is the forum all listed out after the mammoth film threads?) as well as finalising the format. Using the basic elements of the aforementioned film topics, people can list up to 20 of their favourite TV programmes in each of the given categories. Unlike films people don't really tend to seek out older TV shows unless they are repeated so doing lists for each of the decades wouldn't really work. I propose we split them into four distinct 'genres': Drama TV Children's TV Non-fiction TV (documentaries, reality, game shows, sport etc.) Comedy TV One of the positive things that arose from the film topics was that people explored movies that they may not have normally bothered with and hopefully by splitting them into these categories these topics can serve a similar purpose. Doing a general 'best of TV' thread would probably result in a pretty homogenised set of lists which wouldn't unearth forgotten gems, although we can always do a general topic at the end as Chosty has done with the movie lists. So, anybody interested in this? If there is sufficient interest I will post the first topic when Chosty's film threads are out of the way.
