Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels was cool. Snatch was good. Revolver is a great, and totally underrated film, but RocknRolla is complete class. It’s an 11 out of 10. Guy Ritchie has done an awesome job with this film. It’s a combination of gruesome, clever, funny and stupid. All the cast are great, but Mark Strong and Toby Kebbell are exceptional. I think this is probably the perfect UK gangster film. Even better than The Long Good Friday, and that’s going some.

I love US gangster stuff like Goodfellas and Casino, but I guess something a bit closer to home always resonates a bit more.

I’m really chuffed now. 🙂

  1. …of course, I’ll have to see for myself, but that is reassuring, since I loved all of the previous Guy Ritchie films, especially Lock Stock.

    Can’t wait now!

  2. This weekend on cable my 7-year-old saw and enjoyed a Tim Burton movie called Frankenweenie. Filmed in B&W, with Daniel Stern and Sophia Coppola among others. Kid’s dog gets hit by a car, kid digs it up from cemetary and revives it with metal kites in lightning, lots of references to the original monster movies. Very strange, but even stranger is that it’s being remade in stop-motion for release next year.
