I've put the Stalker film on my list.  Sounds very high brow for me but I'll give it a go!

nice one Kingbop. Good to here someones review of a well known classic.

Love Blade Runner so much, interesting that Harrison Ford hated it when he was making it as he felt that the scenery was the main character rather than him. It is true, but strange to get upset about that as an actor.

 
dont think it is strange for an actor to get upset bout that. heads up there own arses kinda guys me thinks.

Ditry Pretty Things
Chiwetel Ejiofor gives a remarkably understated performance in director Stephen Frears's offbeat and gripping drama DIRTY PRETTY THINGS. Ejiofor stars as Okwe, a Nigerian who is trying to make a new life for himself in London, where he works days as a taxi driver and nights as a hotel desk receptionist. When he discovers a human heart in a hotel-room bathroom, he cannot go to the police because he is an illegal alien with a mysterious past he refuses to talk about. Suddenly he is thrust into the middle of a dangerous situation that threatens to have tragic results for him and those around him.

French ingenue Audrey Tautou costars as a Turkish woman who has sought asylum in England, where she is allowed to live but not work. But she must make money, so she works secretly while the government tries to catch her. Benedict Wong turns in a fine supporting performance as Guo Yi, a morgue employee who shares wise and humorous sayings with Okwe. Frears directs the unusual proceedings with a deft hand, slowly revealing secrets that are as gruesome as they are poignant (Love film - copy n paste, couldnt be arsed to write all that).
 

very good film. worth watching just for ms tautou although much more to it than that.  characters are well done and interestin. two leads pretty serious but some quite funny moments with other characters especially the immagration officers, almost cartoon like. wont say much more, not to into reviewing cos its all down to opinion but give it a watch. id give it 81%

plus didnt really like history of violence. heard good things but was bit dissapointed. was ok jus nothin special. + darjeeling is one of the best films ive seen in ages, can watch it over n over. but then again, thats jus like my opnion man...

I love Blade Runner, possibly my favourite film of all time although probably just beaten by the original Star Wars trilogy. Reading the book at the moment but im really struggling to get into it, i thought i would love it but i dont really like the style it is written in, he seems to over describe every little thing making it pretty tedious to read, im trying to like it but with not much success. I shall soldier on though.
 
 
Anyone got a torrent for Stalker? Really wanna see it but cant find it anywhere.

Ive actually got Stalker on the way to me as I speak, which is quite surprising I didn't think Blockbuster would have it.  Or at least that they would take about a year to send it.
 
Got bought 'A very long engagement' the other day which looks pretty good.

Phillip K Dick books are pretty intense. Not easy reading at all. I dont like his style much, but his storys are amazing.

Innit, feels like a bit of a chore reading it, i prefer a more simplistic writing style, i dont like having to read paragraphs more than once to take it in. Are there any other films based on his books other than Total Recall?

Minority Report is a Phillip K dick short story i think. Not all that as a film, but still the plot is quite good.

A Scanner Darkly is a Phillip K Dick novel made into an animated film. Thats more of a low key sci-fi though, not a bad watch. Theres nothing on par with Blade RUnner or Total Recall that i know of.

I used to hate this too. Classic Sci-fi books are sometimes more like reading a dense piece of philosophy rather than a novel. I'm in third year philosophy now and I usually have to read something about 5-10 times over to really grasp it. It can be a ball-ache, but it's very rewarding when you do get it.... I found this with stuff like 'Brave New World' and '1984'.. it was like reading philosophy.

(p.s. sorry for sounding like a pretentious cunt).

i read this in college and didnt find it tough at all. actually really enjoyed it. maybe it all went over my head... we were reading eutopia at the same time. now that i couldnt understand and did not enjoy.

Just watched Strangers On a Train http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0044079

Shit, only 3 scenes with any suspense in it.


lol.  By modern standards it is pretty tame but for its time it was a masterpiece and highly influential.  The fact that it's influenced so much since is why it makes no real impression these days.

I'd say Vertigo is my fave Hitchcock offering. Classic film.

Nineteen Eighty-Four and Brave New World? Fair enough. They have a lot of themes running through them yeah but they're not complex to read. Studied Nineteen Eighty-Four for A-Level out of choice and found it easy going, got me an A anyway. If you were getting Sci-Fi or Philosophy and then comparing it to dense English Lit texts like Ulysses then I'd say yeah

Yeah a lot of the old film makers like Hitchcock and Welles have been copied and improved upon over the years but they were the originators of a lot of techniques.  It's almost worth reading up on it before you see them so that you can properly appreciate what they were doing.

I'd prob go along with Sandman and say Vertigo is his best but North by Northwest, Rear Window, of course Psycho are worth a watch.  Rope's a less well known Hitchcock that's worth a watch, if only for the fact it was shot in one take with the camera moving around the action.

are there?  Aint seen it for time but i thought that was why it was famous.  I know there was some rumour that he'd cheated but i dunno.  It's been about ten years and a lot of drugs since i studied it.
