What? Stoned feral Kalashnikov wielding thieves who'd gun you down if you gave them a dirty look? Where's jolly jokey Johnny Depp prancing about with his funny hair and his idiosyncratic Keith Richards accent? At last an on-screen portrayal of seagoing pirates as they are and always have been - murderous thieving scum. Hats off to the actors who played the chilling and permanently menacing roles of the pirate gang - utterly convincing. Tom Hanks has yet to do a bad movie in my opinion so the quality of his performance was never in doubt. As always, this tale is all the better for being based upon a true incident. Memorable, unique and well worth a look.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hamburger Hill II, 26 Mar 2014
I can't remember that much about 'Hamburger Hill' except that they kept fighting to take a south-east asian hill, then lost it again then took it again and so on, and lots of them got killed in the process.

This is the same film, except it's Korea, and it's equally forgettable.

Band of Brothers it definitely is not - ignore the hype.

A rare one-off uplifting tale of unlikely companionship and devotion that is so much better for NOT having come out of Hollywood. Its French origin, subtlety and style adds a special something to it that would have been drowned in schmaltz if it had been produced across the Pond.

Apparently it's based on a true story, which makes it even more likeable. Highly recommended viewing, and if you can't be bothered with subtitles that's your loss.
