I saw The Raid (or The Raid: Redemption) last week. Fun ass Indonesian action movie. I'd like to see more, I think they might do another.
We won tickets to The King of Pigs at the Sydney Film Festival so we saw that last night. It's a Korean animated movie. What a F'ing dark movie that is. I feel bad for any couples who went to that screening as their first date.
if you like the raid
, the director and the lead actor did an earlier movie called merantau
(available on netflix instant). it's plot is more like ong bak; country boy visits city in search of something and kicks many asses along the way. its beautifully shot, but the martial arts aren't as distinctive as raid or ong bak. still worth your while to see, IMO.
i still say you guys should see war of arrows
(also on netflix), if you can. you'll agree a hawkeye movie can be frikkin' great if you put your mind to it.
also watched cell 211
(aka celda 211). a prison movie set in spain. its about juan, a prison guard on his first day on the job. a freak accident knocks him out, and when he wakes up he finds that he's in te middle of a full blown prison riot. in order to survive, he need to pretend he's a convict too. really gripping, really suspenseful. available on netflix but only as a DVD.
