'...since it is summer and your only other option may be Will Smith giving life lessons to his snot nosed progeny while CGI pixels go batshit everywhere, a Shannon performance may be the best thing on at your local megaplex' - WatchingCattle on The Iceman.
'MBV have an impossible task ahead of them. Like an indie George Lucas they are surely aware that they will disappoint a lot of people by not curing cancer with their new album' - WatchingCattle checks out My Bloody Valentine's Asian tour warmup show at the Brixton Electric in London.
"Bruce Willis is apparently only capable of playing Bruce Willis at this point, therefore Joseph Gordon Levitt has to do his best to play Bruce Willis and this he does extremely well."
"Film Noir done properly..." - Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly.
"In short, this is one of the best - if not the best - films of the year so far and you should see it now." - WatchingCattle is impressed by The Imposter.
"The look of the film, the performances, the pace and even the script works and it stays with you. It is engaging and you can’t help but care about the lead characters and their plight." - WatchingCattle revisits his childhood with Les Geants.
"It won’t be to everyones’ taste but then people actually liked Transformers so what do I know about movies, or humanity for that matter. No omniplex will ever sell any popcorn to its audience." - WatchingCattle finds a moment of comfort in Pat Collins' Silence.
"The tone of the film - the empty, emotionally detached, high and mighty preaching - all of this is the film. It’s hard wired into every scene and for the first hour at least, the film cannot escape the weight of its own overblown tone. And what’s more…it’s fucking boring."
"Yes, suffice to say, I love the Alien Trilogy. And no, we do not talk about the fourth one." - WatchingCattle gives his views on Ridley Scott's Prometheus.
"Film makers seem to be making an effort to normalise idiocy these days." - WatchingCattle on Jeff, Who Lives At Home.
