  • Four Lions

    8

    I have watched this movie three times, the latest being on .

    Four Lions tells the story of a group of British jihadists who push their abstract dreams of glory to the breaking point. As the wheels fly off, and their competing ideologies clash, what emerges is an emotionally engaging (and entirely plausible) farce. In a storm of razor-sharp verbal jousting and large-scale set pieces, Four Lions is a comic tour de force; it shows that-while terrorism is about ideology-it can also be about idiots.

  • In the Loop

    7

    I have watched this movie twice, the latest being on .

    The US President and UK Prime Minister fancy a war. But not everyone agrees that war is a good thing. The US General Miller doesn't think so and neither does the British Secretary of State for International Development, Simon Foster. But, after Simon accidentally backs military action on TV, he suddenly has a lot of friends in Washington, DC. If Simon can get in with the right DC people, if his entourage of one can sleep with the right intern, and if they can both stop the Prime Minister's chief spin-doctor Malcolm Tucker rigging the vote at the UN, they can halt the war. If they don't… well, they can always sack their Director of Communications Judy, who they never liked anyway and who's back home dealing with voters with blocked drains and a man who's angry about a collapsing wall.

  • Magicians

    I have watched this movie once, which was on .

    A pair of rivaling stage magicians are forced to confront their falling out over a guillotine mishap when they compete in a magic competition.

I’ve been walking around with the security tag on my new jacket because @Footasylum forgot to remove it before posting it. No shops for me!
