I never expected Restrepo to be a blockbuster. I knew what it was, I just expected it to be better. It might just be the way it puts across that this one Coy, in one PB, had it worse than anyone else. The USMC had a nails time in the Korengaal Valley too, before and after Battle Coy were in there.

Funnily enough that seems to be the standard female reaction to this movie..

Gangsters paradise jerusalema is the one I'm thinking of, about Jo'burg in SA. Same Idea of developing nations slums, just modern day and from a gangsters perspective not the one seeing it.

Not as good as City of God but worth a watch

Remember reading about that in Sight & Sound, looked fairly decent


Scre4m is shite, becomes the film it tries to lampoon and a total cop out of an ending. Good date movie though.

Saw Source Code


it's a bit shite, generic action film with a Cube/Donnie Darko flavour, a quite badly done homage to the brilliant short film La jetée

But then I'm an uppity film student, so your mileage may vary

Anyone else been watching Martina Coles the Runaway on Sky One?

A good series, prefer the Take, but still is still top quality british drama. Jack O'Connell is gonna be a great actor for years to come

I just watches RESTREPO. What a let down. The trailer makes it look good but all the highlights are in the trailer. The Company commander comes across as a complete tool too.

Not a movie, but it might as well be. Game of Thrones, HBO series. Fucking. Epic.
