BOYCOTT SNATCHED MOVIE

If you didn’t hate Amy Schumer before this, maybe this will make you rethink a little.
Snatched was filmed in my little country, Ecuador (South America). Not many people care or even know about us but we are known for our beautiful Galápagos Islands and beaches, and mountains. Amy Schumer made a movie about HER being kidnapped in one of our cities. This, as you may understand, gives ECUADOR a bad rep. WE LIVE OFF TOURISM. Miss Schumer is already a bad person, and this makes me dislike her more. Please don’t watch this movie. And please come to Ecuador, it’s a beautiful country UPDATE! Pls help me with my fundraiser… http://finchelinthetardis.tumblr.com/post/160813041999/click-here-to-support-help-alina-go-to-college THANK U .

Rupert Grint shares 25 things you may not know about him with Us Weekly — read more

1. I can carve almost anything into the end of a crayon: William Shakespeare, the Statue of Liberty, Gordon Ramsay wearing a fez. Anything!

2. I am definitely a nocturnal creature. I am not a morning person.

3. I currently wear a baseball cap with cross-eyes stitched on the front. It really creeps people out.

4. I like hats. It was an early ambition of mine to be a hat designer.

5. I can’t tell time on analog clocks. The purpose of the big hand and the little hand has never come naturally to me.

6. I’ve never attempted any extreme sports, and I consider running short distances an extreme sport.

7. I am an ambassador for the children’s charity Starlight.

8. My guilty pleasures are Costco pizza and watching The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross.

9. I wanted to be an ice cream man when I was younger. So when I was finally old enough to get my driver’s license, I bought an ice cream truck. In hindsight, it wasn’t the most practical first vehicle.

10. I carried the torch for the London 2012 Olympic Games. And now I use it to store pens.

11. My phone screen saver is a painting of my dog.

12. My dog is named after Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors.

13. I stole Harry Potter’s door number from his house on Privet Drive.

14. My nickname used to be “Poop” because it sounds like “Rupe.”

15. My favorite artist is David Shrigley.

16. My lucky charm is a fake Cher driver’s license.

17. When I was 5, my school asked me to write to media mogul Rupert Murdoch to ask for a donation to fix the pool, their logic being, as we shared a first name, he’d feel more personally invested. It was never repaired.

18. My favorite book is Rant by Chuck Palahniuk.

19. I like to watch Bollywood movies.

20. My karaoke song is anything by Oasis.

21. My favorite television shows are Brass Eye and The OA.

22. The best thing I own is a musical Alessi kettle.

23. While I was filming Snatch on a street in England, a guy gave me a five-pack of socks that he designed.

24. I want to visit Canada to see a narwhal. I’m not sure they exist until I see one.

25. I can’t dance. My body won’t allow me to.

Film No. 6 - SNATCH - 2000 - Guy Ritchie

“Do you know what "nemesis” means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent. Personified in this case by an ‘orrible cunt… me". - Brick Top


Today was the first time that I’d watched this film. And i wasn’t dissapointed.

I think the way I would describe Guy Ritchie is the 'British Tarantino’. Ridiculously complicated plotlines, lots of blood, lots of dying but most importantly, lots of laughs.

Tarantino and Ritchie’s films aren’t for everyone, but if you’ve enjoyed the likes of Lock Stop… or Reservoir Dogs, then you definitely won’t be dissapointed by Snatch.

The story follows the paths of different groups of London-based 'crimesters’, centering around one 84 carat diamond and an underground illegal boxing organisation. The characters include Turkish (Jason Statham) and Tommy (Stephen Graham) - a pair of unscrupulous underground boxing promoters, a collection of supposedly Jewish jewellers, Russian gangsters, violent bookmakers and incompetent amateur robbers.

All of these characters’ lives must in someway overlap and interconnect in their quest to track down the infamous, flawless diamond. 

The stand out aspect of this film has to be the brilliant story and colourful characters. There are far too many to write about fully but if I could pick one it has to be the Irish gypsy bare-knuckle boxer Micky, played by Brad Pitt. (By the way, if you’re Irish and easily offended, be warned that the Irish are mocked throughout this film… the word pikey is a common feature so yeah… take it light heartedly). Micky has a thick, dirty and almost unintelligible Irish accent which, mixed with the cockney coming from the other characters makes for a lot of loss in translation. No characters in the film have a huge part - (Brad Pitt is probably only on screen for no longer than twenty minutes) - but when he is on screen he shines.

The direction and camera work is also brilliant. There’s a lot of really interesting shots and different techniques used which made it really enjoyable to watch from a  'film-buff’ point of view. If you don’t care about all that 'cinematography bullshit’ then you might still enjoy the way the fight scenes are filmed. Ritchie uses a stop/pause/go effect which makes the fight scenes engaging and easy to watch. 

This film is also laugh-out-loud funny. It’s got the one-liners we’ve come to expect from the likes of Vinnie Jones and the stupid gags that have only got better since Lock Stop - the squeeky dog is a particular highlight.

This, in my opinion, is British Cinema at it’s best. 

Snatch is currently #112 in the IMDB ratings with a rating of 8.3

The King Arthur movie was so good! Definitely made him a rogue! There actually quite a few rogues in this one. Well worth a watch~ Much better than what critics say, and any movie wouldn't make much money compeleting with Gaurdians of the Galaxy :\

(This is about King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.)

Good is subjective, though, innit?

Personally, I love Guy Ritchie for Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels and for Snatch, but not for anything he’s done after that. YMMV. :)
