Caught up with a few recent films last tonight.
300 what a horrible, horrible film. The best thing I can say about it was that it exhumed the corpse of Kirk Douglas (circa The Vikings) pumped it full of steroids and cloned it about 300 times, poured on a ton of bad CGI and filmed it all in ORANGE.
The Curse of the Golden Flower By the same director as Hero (which I love) and The House of Flying Daggers (which I’m less keen on). Totally loved it, but be warned its not a martial arts movie but instead being a slow burning Family Drama, admittedly with some awesome mass battle scenes. Liked it alot because it brought to life the Tang Empire, which I’m currently reading about. Without some knowledge of Chinese culture and philosophy it might be a bit hard to get.
