Joe Carnahan credits Filmstalker!
Joe Carnahan, the writer and director of Smokin' Aces (Filmstalker review) has devoted a post to the review here at Filmstalker. It seems that the UK critics aren't impressed with the film, and I really can't understand why. It's superb.
Have a look at the review, and while you're at it check out Joe's great blog in which he's really giving a lot out for the readers.
Here's what he had to say about the Filmstalker review which is entitled:
RICHARD BRUNTON...HERO TO ALL WHO HAIL HIM!
Oh that made me beam. Here's what he went on to say:
My man dropped a fantastic review for 'SMOKIN' ACES' so I must share. I could give a sh*t about what the critics say, but when a blog devotee takes time out to find a few kind words. I must reciprocate.
Check it out!
Now as I said in the comments over at his blog, I really did write my own opinion of the film and didn't pander to the fact I was visting the blog. If I hadn't liked it I'd have still written it. I write it as I see it and feel it.
I do recommend this film, and it's added to the Filmstalker recommends list on the sidebar. Go read why.
Oh, by the way, no updates today as I've just seen Last King of Scotland and guests are arriving for a night of drinking. Expect stories galore tomorrow.
