Plunkett & MacLeane * Jake Scott * 1999

This is one of these films that I wanted to see for a long time, but for some reason I never really came to it. Now that I did see it, I regret not having seen it before! Plunkett and MacLeane are two different people living in 18th century England who decide to work together stealing from the rich. This fact makes this film a nice crime film playing in the past with some nice scenes and good humour. What adds much to the film are some totally unorthodox elements that musicvideodirector Scott added to the film. Just imagine an 18th ball-scene with technoish music…? More then, Robert Carlyle is Plunkett and Carlyle we of course love for his part in Trainspotting. So, should you have been as dumb as me to skip this film, go and see it, it is worth the watch!

Wicker weekend

Last weekend I saw both Wicker Man films, the 1973 original and the 2006 remake and I just see that I ‘blogged’ about these films before.


Nicholas Winding weekend

Last weekend I have rewatched both “Drive” (2011) and “Only God Forgives” (2013). The films are very similar, yet very different. Both have Ryan Gosling as poker-faced main character. In both films Goslings character is involved in illegal activities, but does not really seem to want to. Of course, both films are slow and minimalistic. [...]

No blog

A “blog” with one entry every two years, that is quite cool, is it not?

It has been a couple of years since I added “blogs” to the different sections so I could share information other than reviews. Looking back, I am not entirely sure what kind of information I had in mind. I [...]

Fantasy bombast

During two airplaneflights I have killed some time watching to fantasy spectacles. First the lauded “Avatar”, second the first “Hobbit”. I did not expect “Avatar” to be some sort of “Matrix”, but the famous blue characters inhabit some sort of ‘inbetweenworld’ that men can only come using some sort of machine. The film is an [...]
