150 – Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)

pure shit

pure shit

Where do i begin with the monstrosity of a film?Lets me think.Taratino is one selfish director making a film compleatly for himself,i know that sounds a bit weird but listen to this.When you watch  a good film you should be able to make up your own mind and come to your own conclusions but what Tarantino does is spoon feed you so that you have to think what he forces you to think.He does this throughout the film with title screens and a voice over narrative that you shouldn’t even need if you can tell the story with the imagery.And the music,fuck me,the music,i felt like i had accidentily switched over to MTV at various stages in the film.I counted the songs at the credits and it was 31 songs.If you make a good film you shouldn’t have to pepper it with songs to rouse the viewer.One more thing,if you’re going to make a film just make a film,have a plot,good actors and the rest,don’t fill it full of all this unessessary crap like bleeping words out or switching between black and white all the time.Too much added shit like this spoiled this film.And yeah Tarantino we got the Pulp Fiction reference.

215 – Ip Man (2008)

someone dead

someone dead

A good Asian fighting film set against some sort of communism war background shit.I got a bit confused at one point during this film thinking it was flash forward and flash back sequences but , eh , nope it wasn’t. It’s fairly linear.In the beginning they’re rich and shit goes down the pan and ip man has to go working in the mines,but then the dirty Japs start a war and he stands up for the little guy.Good film.
