Locke


#1

What was that Welsh accent all about eh?!


#2

Or the terrible, hackneyed writing?

Still I’ll give a film that rips into Gary Caldwell a pass


#3

Liked this film.

#7

I lasted til about 20 mins from the end
Then just couldn’t be arsed and switched it off.
Wasn’t for me.


#8

So you missed the bit where it’s revealed that he’s actually an android?

I wish I had video editing skills as here is what I would do with some scenes from Locke:
As Olivia Coleman is pregnant in it…replace all of Lockes dialog with that of Mark Corrigan and have the people who phone Locke be Jeremy, Johnson and Super Hans.

On a side note it does seem that in every role he gets that Tom Hardy either has to be unintelligible, doing a bizarre accent or some mixture of both.

he was my favourite i think apart from sawyer


#11

Kate for me :heart::heart::heart:

As for this film, highly overrated stuff. Felt like the writer was pretty misogynist all things considered too, unless he just liked the idea of a film where you think the main character is a fucking cockend and have to watch him for 90 minutes showing what a total cockend he was. But generally I got the impression the writer though Locke was sympathetic and that this was all about ‘grey areas’ of morality. He wasn’t and it wasn’t: he was a misogynist arsehole, so fuck him.

Oh odd, I did think it kept the link as I’d thought we’d done it before. (I am replying to your post in the ‘shit together part 2 thread’).


#15

How about if I do it while quoting you?


#16

didn’t work


#17

that works, but I knew you could do that already


#18

The writer is Steven Knight - also the writer of Peaky Blinders, Dirty Pretty Things and erm Burnt.


#19

Unfortunately I haven’t seen any of those things so not really sure what point you’re making.

Thought it was pretty good actually.
Quite like Tom Hardy.
