Richie directed Lock, Stock.
Lock, Stock is amazing.
Therefore Richie must have at least a small amount of amazing in bedded within somewhere.



Think Lock, Stock is massively overatted. Is probably his best film overall but only 4/10 & everytime he releases another shitfest I keep knocking .5 of a mark of that just because I can't deduct any more scores of his other movies.

the only film i would ever say avoid of Guy Ritchie's is Revolver as that makes absoluetly no sense whatsoever.

Lock i agree si over-rated but still a great film. Snatch i thought was pretty good and id recommend it to anyone, as well as Sherlock Holmes. now that Madonna has fucked off, he might start directing good films again.

I really liked Snatch actually, seemingly i'm something of a minority.

Snatch & Lock Stock are awesome.

Revolver & Rocknrolla are pretty shit.

I really liked Snatch. Brick top is ace...and it's got Mike Reid in it.
Not seen Lock Stock. RocknRolla and Sherlock Holmes were OK, but nothing special.
Revolver was FUCKING TERRIBLE and the only film I have EVER walked out of. (I almost walked out of Eyes Wide Shut but my mates insisted on staying until the end in case they got to see Nicole Kidman's tits again).
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
Can't a man start over?! Do I have to keep on PAYING?! HUH?!
Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!

I found Lock Stock really really boring. Hugely overrated film, in my opinion.
Same goes for Sherlock Holmes - it had its moments, and I left the cinema with a smile on my face, but once the post-movie hype had died down I couldn't think of many redeeming factors. Much more interested in The Asylum's Sherlock Holmes film..

As soon as I saw "The Asylum" were involved I had a pretty good idea what was going to be in it. I was not disappointed.

Liked Lock Stock, liked Snatch, liked Sherlock Holmes.
Would quite like to see Revolver just to see if it lives up to the anti-hype.

TROLLJEGEREN
(THE TROLL HUNTER)

Image

Three university students track down a man reputed to be a bear poacher but soon discover he has a far more interesting line of work.

A Norwegian film (yes, folks, that means subtitles) presented in mockumentary style, it possesses engaging characters and an intelligent script. Never taking itself too seriously, even though it occasionally turns quite dramatic, it's laced with typically dry scandinavian humour throughout (the Three Billy Goats Gruff scene had me chortling for quite some time).

I won't say anything else about it for fear of giving too much away but I will just say it's great.

The Blair Troll Project.
8.5/10
