Live Blogging: The Bank Job
This movie looked pretty interesting. Jason Stratham tries to rob a bank and gets caught up in all sorts of hubbub. So, after the previews are over, we'll get going.
10:51: Movie opens with a topless girl swimming in the ocean. 1970. We're off to a good start.
10:52: Hm. Then twenty seconds later flashes ahead to 1971. Ooh, thick UK accents.
10:54: "People call us cartoon pigs behind our backs?" "Well they're not gonna say it to your face!" HA.
11:03: Sorry got caught up watching YouTube. They're going to hit some guy. Fun times. "And if it all goes pear shaped?" What a phrase.
11:11: This movie is kinda of weird. All the scenes are extremely short and I keep missing out on what's going on. The fact that I keep having to pause it probably hurts my comprehension.
11:13: How come I never go to bars where you have to wear tuxedos?
11:14: Is that supposed to be... John Lennon in the background?
11:17: Pretty good 70s soundtrack to this flick.
11:19: Okay, so as far as I can tell, this movie is about a lot of important people getting their pictures taken as they're doing it. Naturally, I'm enjoying the film.
11:21: Never trust the guy who dances with the hot girl who's in charge. Somehow I'm expecting a double cross from KEVIN.
11:25: "Don't worry about Martine, she's solid." Alarm bells are going off. RING RING RING. All sorts of double cross alarms here.
11:36: As you can tell, not much is going on. A lot of digging. I do love the poster of this film though.
11:41: "'Ey. No names." "Sorry, Dave." Ah, that old gag.
11:48: Ah, the 70s. A HAM radio operator overhears the robbery. That's rich.
11:53: Okay, having sex or even kissing in the bank vault when you're trying to rob it... Probably not a smart idea.
11:56: I love how "Based on a True Story" immediately allows for coincidence in a movie.
12:00: This is what happens when you take time to celebrate with champagne before you get out. Not caught yet, but still.
12:06: Nice, let's 'splain everything.
12:11: This movie needs the principal from Ferris Bueller as the owner of the bank. That would be hilarious. You know like if he flipped out when he found his bank was robbed? Comedy of the highest caliber.
12:13: "Jesus wept!" Best exclamaition of bad shock ever. I think I'm going to start using that.
12:25: The thing about this movie. There's a lot of characters, and while I'm not having trouble keeping track of them, I'm having trouble keeping track of how they're all related to the bank robbery. This movie probably demands more of my attention. It's good though.
12:29: Looks like I mistrusted the wrong bank robber.
12:34: Now MI5 was involved. Well actually, MI5 was involved real early on. But I got them confused with the cops. So, I guess I'm not keeping track of characters. Oy.
12:38: Never mess with the Porn King of London.
12:40: Correction, the Porn King of Soho. Eh, you probably dont' want to mess with either of them. Also, sometimes I forget plastic bags are dangerous. Glad there are movies to remind me.
12:43: Hm. Seems like an inopportune time to ask if your hubby is cheating on you.
12:46: Wow, she's not smart, for a "spy."
12:51: Why would you trust "the Crown?" A lot of misplaced trust in this film.
1:00: Well, it all works.
