#1/ Friday 19 June, 2009 / 22:42 GMTTonight I managed to catch a showing of High Life and have to say it was surprising in a very nice way. Being a huge fan of all things 80's, that was my only premise for adding it to my viewing list and it really won me over. Presonally I found the start of the film a little slow, but once the 'gang' got together and the pace picked up I really enjoyed the movie and laughed my socks of at some parts of it. It has alot of those wonderful funny moments that just make you laugh at how silly life and people can get.
It's a really good dark comedy and much more than a heist movie, it played more like a buddy movie for me. I'd highly recommend that anyone looking for a good laugh add this to your viewing list.
#2 / Saturday 20 June, 2009 / 15:16 GMTThis film really had me at hello with its tongue-in-cheek Goodfellas intro. Great characterisation, top performances, snappy script, canny use of music, Scorsese-style. Plus I'm a big fan of Timothy Olyphant in Deadwood and he's just great here!
