Shane Meadows is a bit hit & miss IMO anyway… But this is a real stinker.
The Film - This is England was pretty good. Really enjoyed it. This series on CH4 is a real mortgage payer… There looks to have been f’all script & they’re all improv’n and pretending to be mad. They might have had a sh!t film out of it, but to stretch it out like that is wnak.
That… and the Lazy Film-makers tool No.4 - Play a song for 2mins with shots of your characters walking around & looking and doing fck all to do with the plot (cos there is none…)
On the plus side though - If you have never seen the film Dead Mans Shoes - Get it out. You will not regret it.
Great film. The Scene where the Boys are making a Cuppa back in the Gaff is mental… especially with the “Give us a Hug Mate…” bit at the end.
Haha! Yeah… He had the Heart Attack in the Jacks… Pure shock value, nothing else was going on. Cue someone cursing during the Marraige vows. A 15 year old could write that nonsense. Yawn.
Dead Mans Shoes?!! Fuccin Ace Film mate… I love when I meet someone who hasnt seen it cos I get so much pleasure from hearing how much they enjoyed it. Soo good. Lots of great parts… but the other bit I love is when yerman gets out of the car & the brother is standing in front of the garages… he holds out his hand & says something like “See that Mate… You’re right there… Now, get in your Car & Fcuk off!”… I dont usually remember lines from films, but its a classic.
Scum… You mean the one with Ray Winston from a long long long time ago?
The Pool Ball in the Sock? LOL
Another one we used to watch a lot back in Secondary School was Romper Stomper. The Fight scene with the Chinese Gang was nuts.
Hahaha yes mate. I love high tension scenes like that, the whole film is a total build up, I think that’s why it’s so good. Like you know something is gonna blow but it teases you, giving you only subtle glimpses.
Yeah the pool ball in the sock, hahaha. My favourite scene in that film is where they go mental at the end, it just shows that they’re all ultimately united against the bigger darker force that is the authority, yet through the whole film it’s like dog eat dog.
Just by the title “Romper Stomper” it sounds epic. Definitely going to watch that asap man.
I really do like british indie films. There’s a certain grit that’s captured in them that hollywood fails to do.
Aye, it’s pretty good mate. Got a wee prossie in it. I’m sure you’ll like that.
Sounds like an american history x, clockwork orange hybrid.
Definitely the sort of things I enjoy. Demented violence.
Here’s a movie to definitely avoid. The expendables. Utter balls man. There’s no plot, the only plot is basically to have action and blow stuff up. It’s like the eastenders writer got in on the script and some idiot just keeps shouting in his ear, “BLOW THAT BIT UP!”. Probably an american
