I haven't posted in newgrounds in awhile. I'm missing it so I thought I'd come back but I thought I'd come to the Clubs&Crew section first, I always found it more interesting here.
Anyway, I'm a huge film fanatic. Watch everything and tend to love most things.
I would talk about the most recent films i've seen but I just have to spread the word of how awesome The Raid is. Definately go see it when it's released.
Last week they had the UK premiere at the Frightfest during the Glasgow Film Festival, 2 days of all horror movies, usually premieres. Most years I walk away with atleast 3 or 4 films I can see myself watching again, buying or putting in my favourites but this year was seriously dragging. I was joking at the start of it, because I was so excited for The Raid, that I've basically paid Â£55 just to see The Raid but looking back at it, I have and It was 100% worth it.
The Raid is possibly the most intense action packed martial arts film I've ever seen. It's about 100 mins long, about 80 of those mins is pure high octane action. No joke. It's an indonesian film starring Iko Uwais, from Merantau, directed by Gareth Evans whom also done Merantau (and discovered Iko btw). Go watch Merantau then go on youtube and watch the trailer for The Raid if you haven't seen it.
I honestly don't know what to say about the film it's just absolute awesomeness. The choreography is amazing, kill scenes are seriously brilliant, soundtrack is immense. I watched the uncut original soundtrack, the movie is being cut (only 4 seconds) and a new soundtrack by Mike Shinoda (Linkin Park) and Joey Trapanese is being added for the American release. Gareth commented at the Q&A though that the cuts are miniscul and the soundtrack is ace, very 80's carpenter-ish.
Story is pretty much non-existent, it's basically filler to allow the possibility for constant action although of what is there is great and so is the acting.
Seriously, day one, queue up. IT'S FUCKING AMAZING!!!!
