Well, I dont, Im being polite. I'm not a fan of HIMYM at all.
Hobo WIth A Shotgun
Insane amounts of black-humoured fun. Brilliantly gory and "Daily Mail" baiting goodness. Rutger even manages to do some quality acting amid the carnage, shotguns and manhole cover decapitations. Worth a watch if for nothing else that the School Bus scene.
King King (Peter Jackson Version)
Again with the too long thing (TDKR I'm looking at you).
It has its moments, all of which revolve around Kong himself. However much of the film is lacking quite badly. The acting, while it doesnt have to be great, it should be at least functional, it all seems a bit too "soap opera".
Special effects, while Kong himself is superb as are the V-Rexs, the rest looks rushed. The Dino chase in particular is amateur looking.
Something else than never seems to get mentioned is the editing, it feels like they did all the Kong bits, then did the rest of the film half-arsed, worst culprit is oddly long insect cave bit, goes on for ages, needed a snip or 12!
Good stuff, like I said, Kong is great, as is the dust up he has, set design, too is very good, 20's New York looks brilliant.
Entertaining, but too bloody long whilst feeling rushed.
