This the third instalment of the Bourne franchise,third of four so far.It’s a pretty good concept or story,rogue agent trying to clear his name with some great action in between him getting out of the game to him getting back into it.The camera work for of a lot of the start of the film was pretty rubbish.Like it was filmed by a camera man falling down some stairs on a boat .Very fucking shaky.even in shots of people in an office typing it’s all over the place, i was almost getting  motion sickness.The fight scene between Bourne and the Desh guy in Morocco was excellent.I was thinking near the end will he won’t he get away and then i  remembered i seen The  Bourne Legacy in the cinema a few months back,but wait was Matt Damon even in that ? Was it not all Jeremy Renner ? Fuck, maybe he didn’t make it out.

189 – Howls Moving Castle (2005)

Here’s an anime from Ghibli Studios.I think it’s a steampunk film.The film’s not meant to be set in any specific time,not past or future,but in an alternative present where mechanics haven’t evolved past the steam engine.The film is about good and bad witches and wizards and spells cast by both.One of the best aspects of anime is you can get some really bizarre and unique stories.Western animation seems to stick to a set of strict plot guidelines,but Asian stuff can be really out-there.I did notice after a wee bit that Christian Bale was voicing the main guy and all i could think was Batman with that forced husky voice.Maybe the subtitled version would be better.The subs would be more accurate;they change the dialogue to sync with the lips which were animated originally for the Japanese script.

245- Jurassic Park (1993)

you fat fuck

you fat fuck.

Dinosaurs!Well here’s a nice family favourite that you can sit down on a Sunday and watch.I haven’t seen this one in ages. Didn’t even realise Samuel L.Jackson is in it.That guy’s in everything.Watching this again i was in amazed in some parts and in others i was a bit crestfallen.Some bits seemed like the CGI was made by a toddler in Microsoft Paint but maybe it just looked that way because of the crappy download.On the whole this is a good film few stupid bits like when the electric fence is powering up,no one says “hey kid the fence is powering up.Drop now and I’ll catch you or you will die” but instead they start counting down from 3 or something.Stupid.I was going to rate it a bit    lower but when i looked back and seen it was 1993 ,nearly 20 years ago, i decided that it deserved a little more seeing as they didn’t have tons to work with back then.

249 – Rio Bravo (1959)

Tacos?

Tacos?

Rio Bravo – a film about alcoholism.This film is a bit of a double edged dildo,half crap halve not too bad.its a slow burner.The beginning is pretty crap , it’s got loads of stereotypical western shit and everyone is over acting.It seems like it would be a good show on stage if they cut it to about an hour but as a film for over two hours,not too good.

Dean Martin learns to act an hour in.Bruce Wayne is a massive dummy.He must be in his 50’s but there’s a good looking woman that’s 22 who is mad for the ride but i guess he’s too dumb to see it.now stumpy i don’t know what to make of that buck.he seems like the basis for all the old west gold prospectors or something.Everyone in this film seems like a caricature of a person and that’s where the theatre thing comes in , over acting lawd.Some of the action scenes are over dubbed and you can notice it a mile off and for 90% of the whole film you’re totally aware you’re watching a set or sound-stage but other than that it’s okay.
