    I was worried about that, but apparently it's an adapted South African crime novel.

    ^Orlando Bloom in Zulu (2013) is likely more rugged/menacing than Caine in that old Zulu ;)

    Quite the film-list. Now I have to find a convincing way of selling to my teachers the fact that exams should be deferred until i've caught up with my filmography.

    Is Predrag Manojlović related to Miki Manojlović?

    (incidentally, don't suggest that I watch Rade in the Harry Potter films, that'd ruin him forever for me).
    Oooh I've heard about those before.
    Not Cockney enough.

    I don't understand why we're discussing the (de)merits of barbarians, but… no.

    Exams first, filmography later.

    Predrag Miki Manojlovic - http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0543547/

    I do not harry to watch and of course, do not read at all, anything about Harry Potter and as you already know, some movies actors take for more money and less for art, but even when they do their job the best possible and those films become hits, there will also always be an academic inclined people that will dislike the subject of those movies (yes, including me) and tend to criticize all who took part in making them. Just how it is and how people tend to be act in vanity (me too, of course, sometimes).

    The cabin in the woods.

    Pretty good :)

    The female protagonist is very hot too.

    Watched it in Postcolonial Histories and Cultures today. I expected worse. It is very well acted (I was surprised by Kenneth Branagh's appearance as Neville, but everyone else did quite a fine job as well). The photography is splendid, the soundtrack by Peter Gabriel wonderful. An interesting true story very well told. I would give it an 8/10

    I enjoyed this movie far more than most "horror" movies.

    Freaking hell, Zovko Teleport (2013) is still much better than most of the horrible stuff Hollywood tries to pass off as science fiction.

    Drone, a 2014 Norwegian documentary on the current drone strikes. Striking imagery and heartrending testimony from a number of different points, such as survivors of the strikes and former drone pilots. Learned a few things, e.g. that it is common practice to fire at people gathering to help the injured. To say that such behavior is questionable would be the understatement of the decade. The specific message is clear: US policymakers need to be accountable for these strikes. A more general theme is how institutions and policies are slow to catch up to technological advancements, putting into question the emphasis on the natural sciences and business over social sciences and the humanities.

    The only criticism I have is that the film that does not explore certain issues enough, such as European intelligence agencies (!) being involved in sending data critical for targeting of these drone strikes. Another major example would the connection the film tries to make between modern military video games and the growing importance of remote warfare.

    The first time since Gandhi (yeah, Gandhi!) I'm contemplating (for reasons I can't totally fathom and I'm not going to try to explain) going to the cinema to see Salvation. Anyone seen it?

    Killer Elite, that Statham action flick with DeNiro and Clive Owen. It isnt actually as bad as it sounds or seems. It is a decent action flick with some interesting point or another that fail to be sustained. It looks like it wants to be that old-style action flick from 40 years ago, then bursts into mindless action. Promising but not delivering. Watchable. 7/10
