Perfect Hideout


I got this out from the video shop - as it had a picture of Billy Zane in the front (the baddy in Titanic and Dead Calm) - and the blurb at the back of the box made it sound like a good film.


The plot is pretty good but it was somewhat painful to watch with some really bad acting - the directing is pretty bad too. 


The attention to detail makes it almost amateurish: The most annoying thing about the film was that it was supposed to be set in Germany - and the special forces team that came to the rescue looked more like SWAT and they all spoke with an American accent. The only person who spoke with a (fake) German accent was Victor (Zane) who did a decent enough acting to make me watch it till the end.

2012 a few weeks a go - 6/10. Awesome effects, get a bit bored with the Just In Time escape - about 6 of them ? Just how lucky can one guy get ? :-)

Naff characters - the usual US of A citizen dragging his kids around trying to reconcile with an estranged wife...

No details of the 2012 prophecy at all ......

Seems Jesse Ventura thinks it's a documentary: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bk1UDbuoyiA

BuffyNZ: Zombieland.

Loved it, some great one liners and a good addition to the zombie genre.

Same here, awesome movie!

Also watched Dawn of the Dead on C4 last week and liked that a lot too.

Just watched Scary Movie 4

Lets just say, if you like the scary movie series, with use of humor towards Dr Phil and Michael Jackson then you will like this. It is a 2006 film, not bad for sunday night entertainment

I saw Zombieland last week, absolutely loved it, 9/10. It made me want to play some Left4Dead when I got home.

Over the weekend we watched "The Box" - I loved the old Twilight Zone episode, however the movie was a complete DOG. Also watched Che part 1 and 2 - brilliant.

Watched Public Enemies last night. OK movie, Johnny Depp is always good, but wasn't as good as The Untouchables.

Picture quality was odd, it looked like a making of documentry and detracted from the feel of the movie. Apparently it was shot using HD digital cameras, but I much prefer the picture you get from traditional film. The dialogue was also poor in parts with odd drops in the volume.

The Informant - Interesting for a quiet spot in the day, when bored while away from home on business, and the fact I like Matt Damon. Not the normal Hollywood plot formula - which is always good
Has shades of Matt Damon as "The Talented Mr. Ripley" and Leonardo DiCaprio's "Catch me if you can"

Dawn of the Dead a few days ago - great - I do enjoy a good zombie flick. When the coming zombie apocalypse arrives I'll know how to survive ie
1. Do not turn towards a strange sound then just relax - you will get bit!
2. Always look behind you or - you will get bit!
3. Don't be evil or a bit ugly or - you will get bit!

As long as you are a good looking couple with military training, a hot bod, never sleep, with ugly people around you to get bit. You'll be OK ... So I'm dead!!
