Quentin Tarantino’s Top Films of 2009

Posted by LiveFor on December 15, 2009

He hasn’t seen a few films such as Avatar and The Lovely Bones, but his list of the top 8 is pretty good.

I agree with him on a few of them. However, I haven’t seen all of the films and I have to disagree with him and many other people on An Education being a great film. I thought it was absolutely dreadful – like a poor ITV Sunday evening drama with poor characterisation, ridiculous story and it seemed to lose its nerve half way through (yes I know it is based on a true story). After reading good things about it I really wanted to like it, but it sucked big ones. As for Carey Mulligan’s character everyone is raving on her performance which was good, but I just wanted to shake her character and say stop being so stupid….Hmm well that turned into a bit of a rant didn’t it!

Star Trek and Drag Me to Hell were both excellent.

I’ll let Quentin get on with it.

What do you think of his list? Agree or disagree?

I’ve not posted my 2009 Year in Review which includes my Top 10 Movies.

Observe and Report – Kind of like Taxi Driver?

Posted by LiveFor on March 23, 2009

An interesting piece about Seth Rogen’s latest film over on Hollywood Elsewhere.

Observe and Report “is not a movie about a guy who becomes a hero [but] a guy who’s decided in his own mind that he is one, all evidence to the contrary. Referring to this movie and Paul Blart: Mall Cop in the same breath because they’re both about mall cops is like comparing Straw Dogs to Babe because they’re both set on a farm.” — from Moises Chiullan’s just-posted review of Jody Hill’s upcoming Warner Bros. release, which is opening 4.10.

Anyone out there who believes that the Warner Bros. copy line on the Observe and Report poster is meant to be understood in this light — i.e., that Rogen’s character is delusional — doesn’t know much about studio marketing. The poster obviously isn’t taking the idea of Rogen’s mall cop being a hero seriously — the shades make it clear he’s a self-absorbed doofus — but the poster isn’t even flirting with the idea that the character may be seriously deranged in a Travis Bickle sense of the term. There isn’t a wisp of a hint of this in the poster art.

I personally thought it was just going to be a typical Judd Apatow style comedy, but this sounds like it could be something a little bit different and quite a bit darker than previously thought.

Observe & Report – Seth Rogen is watching you in these 2 new posters

Posted by LiveFor on March 18, 2009


Bi-polar mall security guard Ronnie Barnhardt (Seth Rogen) is called into action to stop a flasher from turning shopper’s paradise into his personal peep show. But when Barnhardt can’t bring the culprit to justice, a surly police detective (Ray Liotta) is recruited to close the case.

Observe and Report is both written and directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Jody Hill (The Foot Fist Way). This was shot entirely on location at the Winrock Mall in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Warner Brothers will debut Observe and Report in theaters everywhere on 10th April.

Observe and Report – Red Band Trailer for Seth Rogen comedy

Posted by LiveFor on February 7, 2009

At the Forest Ridge Mall, head of security Ronnie Barnhardt patrols his jurisdiction with an iron fist, combating skateboarders, shoplifters and the occasional unruly customer while dreaming of the day when he can swap his flashlight for a badge and a gun. His delusions of grandeur are put to the test when the mall is struck by a flasher. Driven to protect and serve the mall and its patrons, Ronnie seizes the opportunity to showcase his law enforcement talents on a grand scale, hoping his solution of this crime will earn a coveted spot at the police academy and the heart of his dream girl Brandi.

Directed by Jody Hill (The Foot Fist Way) and starring Seth Rogen
