This movie did have it's pop culture references, but it also put fun twists on many things from the Hunger Games. I loved watching this movie, and I've already watched it a couple times more. I would recommend that it not be completely looked over as an average Friedberg and Seltzer movie, I think they're improving.

Any gang can challenge for the title of gang leader of the city, but no one ever beats Nicola and his killers. One day a man bent on revenge, and an Asian man on a secret mission, land in town on the same train and each threaten to break Nicola's infrastructure and maybe claim the city's martial arts title. "Did someone die?" "Not yet, but the prospect seems promising"Guy Moshe, director of Holly, delivers Bunraku as his second major motion picture. The storyline for this starts with a lot of potential but plateaus quickly and concludes disappointingly. When the film first started, I had a lot of hope this could be a bit like Sin City; unfortunately, this falls flat. The cast had potential but delivers average performances. The cast includes Josh Hartnett, Woody Harrelson, Demi Moore, Ron Perlman, and Kevin McKidd."Things never go well before first going wrong."This is another random movie I came across on Netflix so I decided to give it a shot. I thought the cast looked interesting and fun. The film honestly had an amazing kickoff and I got excited to see its direction, but it quickly took a bad turn as they tried to develop Perlman's character. The film kind of fell flat and crashed. I recommend skipping this."Are you here for the ball, my friend?"Grade: D+/C-

From the lighting to the cinematography to the music, Anderson's film leaves you unsettled throughout.The performances: Using performers he would regularly work with, Anderson utilizes Philip Baker Hall and John C. Reilly to tell a story about friendship and obsession. With great supporting performances from Paltrow, Jackson, and even a cameo by Philip Seymour Hoffman, Hard Eight feels like a completely fleshed out world.The Bad: I don't know that I'd call any of this bad.The Smugly: A New Coen Brother: Looking back at the film, it feels like an homage to the Coen Brothers, however, being that it came out at the same time, there are many similar beats to the idiosyncratic sibling's films. It's not a huge mark against it, but it definitely is worth mentioning.A little too slow: It's not always a bad thing for Anderson films, but his usual deliberate pacing hadn't been mastered yet, and there are times where the film slows down too much to be truly enjoyed.

Victor T (de) wrote: In 1992, an independent filmmaker changed cinema for the rest of the decade as he took audiences by surprise: Quentin Tarantino. His style was imitated to death for the rest of the 90s with many failures, but a notable success of said imitation is what can be the equivalent to the British "Reservoir Dogs": Guy Ritchies debut "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels". Eddy, Tom, Soap (not kidding) and Bacon (seriously) are four small time criminals that get themselves into trouble as they end up indebted to a notoriously violent mobster who gives them a week to pay. As the amount of money is almost impossible to earn in seven days, the foursome decide to make a heist but they aren't aware of the consequences their actions will bring upon them.With such an atrocious name and a counting with unexperienced producers and director, it would be safe to assume that this film would be a failure, but surprisingly Guy Ritchies directorial debut is the exact opposite. "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" counts with solid performances, the comedy is downright hilarious, a shockingly functional use of numerous rock songs, a script that's a combination of Tarantinos style with "Magnolia" type of intertwine writing, dialog that's basically a Tarantino wannabe but focus on sarcastic characters, and it's extremely fun to watch. But this fun and memorable debut film has two major issues: The pacing is so fast that for the first 30 minutes you will most likely struggle to process every character or even the dialog itself, but once you get used to it you will enjoy the ride; and overall Ritchie himself. Guy Ritchie has made name for himself due to his energetic and over produced style that at times works (especially when he focuses on comedy) but at others it just comes off as he is trying too hard to appear as smart as Tarantino by mimicking moments of Quentins debut, but let's give credit where credit is due: His almost music video style works perfectly in this crime comedy as it is overall what makes this film fun and hilarious. "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" is hilarious, entertaining and overall well-crafted film, despite the fact its pacing is extremely fast and Ritchies over produced directing style is at time disorienting. Highly recommendable if you want a good laugh or just want to watch a memorable film that has attitude. Undeniably Ritchie's best film to date and possibly the best Tarantino film not made by Quentin himself.
