182 – Mary And Max (2009)

you fat fucks

you fat fucks

Here’s a feature length stop motion film.This one is surprisingly high up the list as I’ve never heard of it and it’s fairly recent but all the more credit to it.The film centres around two people, one a young girl living in Australia and the other a forty-something year old man living in New York, and there relationship which is struck up via a random penpal letter.It’s a realistic story and wouldn’t surprise me if it was part based on fact but there is some great comedic parts peppered in and the animation seems pretty descent too.It paints a realistic picture of the working class and can be pretty sad in parts but that’s life.

IMDB RATING      –     8.1

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.

IMDB RATING      –     8
MY RATING     –     8.2
SEEN BEFORE     –    YES
RECOMMEND?     –     YES
OVERALL     –    GOOD.A FEW DUMB BITS YOU CAN PICK UP AS YOU WATCH IT THOUGH.
