Hey Mates, Harry here... Still in a giggly mood over this election confusion. He wins... oooohhh, maybe he didn't, Oh yes he did, well I don't know, maybe a campaign upon the electoral college.... Voter fraud, missing ballots, weird lever issues... MY GOD... I love this stuff. Anyway another thing I love is Guy Ritchie's SNATCH.... The film is just electric. But I want to hold my review till we get closer to release... I'm thinking some point in January. I just hope they do the L.A. and N.Y. thing to get Brad nominated for Supporting Actor. I hope.... Here ya go...
Big fan of the site, never contacted you before, etc etc. Anyways, I went to see a preview of Guy Ritchie's "Snatch" (oh my, that sounds rude!) here in Melbourne and I can't seem to find any info on it on AICN. Either I'm a bit thick, or no one is talking about it. Either way I just thought I'd let you know that it is one of the most entertaining movies I've seen for quite a while.
Sure it follows the Lock Stock formula to a tee, but it is just SO well directed and acted that it just blew my cousin and I away when we saw it. Brad Pitt puts in yet another superb performance to go along with the likes of 12 Monkeys, Seven and Fight Club. His portayal of a hard nut Irish Gypsy is so good that I just sat there thinking "Man, I wish I was Brad Pitt," and it had nothing to do with his love life! There is a scene where someone close to him (won't give it away) has been,shall we say, put in an unfortunate situation. He stands, bare chested and tattooed to the max, fire reflecting in his eyes, and looks like he's going to tear the whole world apart. Truly breathtaking.
Everyone else in the cast is just superb, with Vinnie Jones especially good as (surprise, surprise) a hardened crim. Guy Ritchie's daring and inventive mile-a-minute direction is a breath of fresh air, and the kick arse (I refuse to say ASS) soundtrack pumps things along nicely.
To everyone in the States, GO SEE THIS MOVIE when it comes out. You won't regret it.
Sorry Harry, got a little carried away there. I'm off to watch "Whose Line Is it Anyway?" Take it easy mate, and I'll see you down under some day.
