On Saturday I went to the movies. By myself. Something I haven’t done in a long while. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, some quality Mark time.
The movie I saw was RocknRolla, directed by Guy Ritchie:
When a Russian mobster sets up a real estate scam that generates millions of pounds, various members of London’s criminal underworld pursue their share of the fortune. Various shady characters, including Mr One-Two, Stella the accountant, and Johnny Quid, a druggie rock-star, try to claim their slice…
I’m going to keep my personal review to a minimum – it’s an awesome movie. Forget what the critics are saying and judge it yourself.
Ok to the punch line of this post.
I love watching creative introductory credits to a film. I’m a firm believer in presenting the seemingly boring credit notes to a movie in a fun, eye-catching way. After all shouldn’t the first few minutes of a movie grab your attention, not bore you to death? Rocknrolla’s intro was memorable – a grungy, bad-ass gangster mash up of grainy illustrations, chunky typography and paint splatters.
