217 – A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)

CUNT

This film got me pretty angry,well the first quarter of it and all because of one woman ;Blanche.She’s conceited ,vain ,narcissistic and a compulsive liar with ideas of grandeur.The films about 2 sisters raised in Mississippi.While one left and moved to New Orleans and had the craic,the other stayed at home and thinks she’s hot shit or a queen.Bitch.Turns out in the end she’s a hooker.Spoiler.Fuck you Blanche.Also she cracks up with herself,seems she can’t distinguish between her stories and reality.Brando is quality in this though.This was wrote as a play,with one set i imagine,and a few things seem off in it as a film like in one scene someone can be having a bath in one room while in the other a bomb goes off and they don’t hear it,while in another a couple are whispering in the house and it can be heard from the busy street.

218 – A Fistful Of Dollars (1964)

Great film.This is how westerns should be done.The film revolves around two rival family/gangs that live at opposite ends of a town that’s about the size of a basketball court.How they’ve managed to live this long without all killing each other is a mystery.Eastwoods character turns up and sets up the two gangs just to wipe them out of it and make off with the cash.Some deadly camera work,the extreme close-ups make this film.

219 – Monsters Inc (2001)

Monsters Inc is about the trials and tribulations of members of the band Mettalica.Well not really.It’s about a world where monsters exist and supply their world with power gathered from the screams of children.Their job would have been pretty easy is they just hung around catholic churches after hours.The monsters are themselves afraid of the kids and think they’ll be contaminated and die if a kid touches them.Half way through the film they discover that a kids laughter produces 10 times more energy.Original story,early CGI and i shows.Everything is smooth,no texture.

220 – Star Trek (2009)

"Those space mushrooms are kicking in man"

“Those space mushrooms are kicking in man”

I’d consider myself a pretty big fan of the whole Star Wars franchise but Jesus I watched this thing for over two hours and didn’t spot Darth Vader in there once.I think i saw the death star in a few scenes though.Joking aside here,this is a pretty decent film and as a starter point for many non trekkies it does well to introduce you to all the main characters with sufficient back stories and in a nice light tone.If i were to try and describe what happens in this film i’d be here a bit so i’ll leave it at this : space,time travel,end of world scenario,rubbish accents.The worst bits with the whole film are all the lens flares,once you notice it it really annoys the crap out of you.

221 – In The Name of The Father (1993)

Fancy a shift?

Fancy a shift?

Now that was a film.Very cathartic near the end.Hard to believe that all this shit happened back then.If you haven’t already seen or heard about ITNOTF it’s about a couple of lads who are targeted as the scape goats for an IRA bombing in London in the mid 70’s.It’s got some dark humour and quite a bit of politics from the IRA to the English justice system.I thought the film might have been a bit biased but a quick wiki seems to say that it was pretty much spot on.

222 – Rosemary’s Baby (1968)

Jimmy's winning matches.....

Jimmy’s winning matches…..

Wow.What the fuck did i just watch?This film has some good bits (i.e. Mia Farrow getting her kit off at every turn about ) and some bad bits (i.e. the drug trip Satan rape scene ).Most of the film is a bit predictable and the ending isn’t what you’d expect,I won’t spoil it.The gist of the film is a young couple move to a new apartment and she gets plugged and her looks go from model to holocaust survivor from scene to scene.Long story short the baby is the spawn of the devil.

223 – Beauty and The Beast (1991)

Pedobear sneaks a peek.

Pedobear sneaks a peek.

This one’s about bestiality and one girls quest to defy convention by having sex with a half wolf half lion type creature.All the while every fucking thing in the house is alive and watching you,i can’t imagine what it’d be like trying to take a dump in the place.And one more thing the candle is alive but what happens when the wax burns out?Does he die?
