Always a good thread to keep going and gives members a good idea of what films are good/poo.

WE OWN THE NIGHT. 8/10



Good solid film. Not the fastest paced story line but kept me wanting to keep watching.

LINK to info pasted at bottom.

Product Description
In We Own the Night Joaquin Phoenix plays Bobby Green, a young man who has turned his back on his family, going as far as changing his last name and concealing any links he has with New York’s finest. He is the manager of the popular El Caribe, the legendary Russian-owned nightclub in Brooklyn. But Bobby is about to go head to head with his brother and father when they become the target of the Russian mob.

Synopsis
Director James Gray (THE YARDS) posits two distinctly different brothers--Joseph (Mark Wahlberg) and Bobby Grusinsky (Joaquin Phoenix)--as the central characters in this crime-infested thriller. Joseph and Bobby inhabit two conflicting worlds in late 1980s New York, the former becoming a cop and the latter running a nightclub. Bobby spends his evenings in a den of iniquity, indulging in drugs, alcohol, and gambling, and his attractive girlfriend Amada (Eva Mendes) is never far from his arm. Their two worlds meet when the father of the two men, Burt (Robert Duvall), who is also a cop, gets together with Joseph to ask Bobby for information about a patron of the club named Vadim (Alex Veadov). Vadim is the nephew of the club's owner, and also a dangerous member of the Russian criminal underworld. Bobby sides with Vadim, and the tension in Gray's brother-versus-brother potboiler reaches melting point as Joseph goes after both his sibling and his Russian foe.
Wahlberg, Phoenix, and Duvall all deliver high-calibre performances throughout, and Gray suffuses the plot with enough twists and turns to provide a few surprises. New York City is perfectly utilised as a backdrop to the action, and cinematographer Joaquin Baca-Asay manages to get the balance between moody, atmospheric shots and explosive action sequences just right. WE OWN THE NIGHT ultimately resembles an old-fashioned cop film with a little Scorsese-like drama thrown in for good measure, and is likely to gain a following among movie fans seeking retro crime thrills

Bought the Snatch and Layer Cake box set almost a year ago, Snatch being one of my favourite films. Anyway popped Layer Cake in last week and i think it was at least as goosd as Snatch. A similiar style in the way the story is told and a top performance from Daniel Craig. If you ain't seen it i highly recommend it.

9.5 / 10

Yeah, Iron man was awsome. One of the better Marvel films by far. Downey Jr. was great as Stark and the transition between CGI and live action was often seamless.

Watched the movie "Zodiac" the other day, its from the director of SE7EN and Panic Room. Which are also great films!

Zodiac was quite a long film (2+ hours) wasn't as fast paced (in a way) as say SE7EN was for example. but the film was good at keeping you hooked, and near the end you become even more keen to find out the who the Zodiac Killer is.

Overall i'd give it 8.8/10

I also strongly recomend SE7EN for those who have not yet seen it. I watched it again the other day and remembered what a great film it is!

The last film I watched was the 70's exploitation masterpiece Macon County Line, awesome little independent film from the 70's starring the guy who played Jethro from the Beverly Hillbillies as a backwoods cop. Well worth a watch.

I watched indiana jones on sunday and i havent watched the others so i cant compare but the story was about aliens and the treasure at the end was knowledge and they didnt even get anything at the end. yes i know what you thinking 'GAY' but it was alright Neutral it would of been better if it was a gold city like they said in the story, instead of like a space ship temple.
