I don’t know what’s wrong with the rest of you people – I could understand the Pikey just fine.
So Mr. Madonna made a movie starring Mr. Jennifer Aniston…I wonder if they ever double dated?
Pretty much the same drill as Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, except it has Hollywood stars – though I’m not sure that’s a good thing. Snatch’s starpower is almost distracting. One of the things that I liked the most about Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels was the fact that I had never seen any of these Brits before in my life, except for Sting of course, but he was hardly recognizable. But Snatch was like the fucking Golden Globes – even Spud from Trainspotting was in it!
Even so, I really liked it. It had pretty good pacing, didn’t get bored or anything. I was even surprised by the ending…well a little bit at least. Funny how the good guys always come out on top in these films.
I am hoping that Ritchie’s next film is a bit different than the heist films of late – I would really like to see what he can do. He’s gotten into a kind of Tarantino groove, not a good place to be stuck in, though I have high hopes for Kill Bill. Ritchie needs some box office, irrelevant as it may be. Of course it stars his wife, so people will go see it regardless.
