Funny cause it's about the queen having all the power in a chess game. But at the end of the movie one of the lines was, (paraphrasing) it's all just a game. I liked it overall. Definitely good dialogue.
I'm that person that embodies pretty much everything that you hate.

My reluctant fascination with Russell Brand commanded me to watch The World According to Russell Brand, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek during the past week. Great fun, but it'll probably be a while before I need another Brand fix.
“If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us.” - Hermann Hesse
It is a well made movie with top flight actors, excellent cinematography, wonderful scenery, marvellous Irish humour, a great story line, and completely topical.
It is about child rape within the Roman Catholic Church.
Naturally one would think it would expose the criminalty of Vatican, offer some redress to the victim, and perhaps question the role Catholic theology plays in child rape.
But not a bit of it - the child rape victim ends up in jail, the criminality of the Vatican is not even mentioned once, instead we are offered an intelligent, humourous priest with personal integrity, as an innocent victim.
And worse the Catholic theology of an innocent scapegoat dying for our sins is affirmed in spades.
Yes, Calvary is an excellent propaganda movie which shows us what Catholics truly think about being caught raping tens of thousands of children and getting away with it.
I can't say Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was better than Rise, but the apes this time around are totally convincing 90% of the time. To all the vfx artists and animators, very nice work. Andy Serkis gets way too much credit and the ape animators deserved top billing every bit as much as Serkis did. He's really only a decent actor with the help of fx artists.
