the Departed...hated it

Cache...not bad
Ucho (the Ear) brilliant, paranoid and banned in it's own country for years
Underground...Excellent.
the Passenger....excellent if very very slow Jack Nicholson movie
Black Cat, White Cat...stunning
Come and See...one of the best war films ever
Forty Shades of Blue (forty shades of shite more like)...the worst film we have ever seen, the first we have ever walked out of (at one point I hoped I'd die during the film just to escape it's toe curling dullness ;))
Chung King Express...very good
2046....very good
City of God...excellent
Dumplings...not bad

36...dull...nose acting!

Favella Rising....excellent doc about Brazilian slums, redeption and hip-hop
Unknown White Male....the best doc I have seen, really makes you think
Hard Candy...didn't like it
Withnail and I....great (is it my fault it took me years to see it?)
Wings of Desire...brilliant and weird to see the ruins where the Sony Centre would end up being made on
Some Doc on Kiev down and outs, as part of a festival in Glasgow
both Vengeance movies (mr and lady)...excellent
the Proposition (average)...what is Ray Winston doing???? again!
the Devil and Daniel Johnson....zzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Wah Wah...very good

the Three Burials....the best film that I saw this year, especially Barry Pepper...brilliant acting, music and cinematography
21 grams....loved it
the line up at the NFT starring Eli Wallach, very good
Red road... brilliant, we saw it at the Barbican in London
Kwaidan...brilliant, the full 3 hour version
Ong Bak...ok film, Tony Jaa is god!
Kagemusha...good, but slow
the Death of Mr Lazarencu (sp?)...very weird human semi-documentary

I think that went whoosh there, AK


"This year, oi 'ave been mowstly watchin........."

Well, only went to the "pictures" as we say in Scotland twice.

1st time to see the DaVinci code, which is an OK fillum, but did inspire Mrs to want to go to Paris again, and Pirates of the Carribean: Curse of the Black Pearl, which I thought was better than the 1st one, but I appear to be in the minority.

Most of what I have watched, movie wise has been on DVD, & you'll be pleased to know I'm not going to list all 59 of them here.

The highlights of the list are:

Downfall - The final days in the Berlin bunker, 1945. fantastic performances.

All Quiet on the Western Front (1930 version). one of the best ANTI war movies.

Le Salaire De La Peur - Better than "Sorceror". If you could just dub the TD soundtrack on........ :roll:

Whistle And I'll Come To You - I love the BBC Ghost Story for Christmas tradition, and this is one of the best. MR James.... No one writes a ghost story anywhere nearly as well.

Pulse - Pink Floyd. IMO, there has never been a better concert DVD. (Not even Tempodrom!)

Sorcerer - Brilliant. And that's just the soundtrack!

Farewell To The World - Crowded House. Is it really ten years since they split? Wonderful memento of a wonderful band.

Auschwitz - The N@zis & The Final Solution. David Irving should be made to watch this till he believes. Or his eyes bleed. Or both.

Tempodrome - Unbelievably, this is the first official release of a concert I've been to on DVD or CD. Couldn't have been a better place to start.

Got to agree on these two,but cant judge if Pulse is better than the Tempodrom until it actually arrives :? Somehow i think i might just enjoy it if the postie remembers me :wink:

Downfall was facinating Graeme not least as I had acquired the World at War this year and had already watched the episode on Traudl Junge (AH's secretary) .

Often amazes me whilst watching AH the amount of love he showered on his dog,and he treated a race of mankind with barbaric contempt..........

Unbelievable :arrow:

I've got both of them. Hope you saw the Criterion version on the Wages of Fear, they did an amazing job of cleaning up the film. Probably my all time favourite film (this week)

Whistle (the Jonathan Miller, 1968? film) is one of the best adaptations of an M R James story (although there were 2 or 3 in the 70's that were almost as good). Typcally I missed the more recent versions that went out on BBC 4 :roll:
