…And then there were 358…

Smokin’ AcesWell, perhaps I might just be able to claw back a hint of dignity from the whole movie-a-day challenge I set myself for 2007 – just realised I missed Joe Narc Carnahan’s Smokin’ Aces off the list.

It’s not a great film, but it rattles away in a comic book fashion, tearing through a transparent screwball-with-violence mob thriller plot in good time, with moderately diverting attractions along the way, such as lesbian assassins with a Barrett big fifty, comedy nazis and Ben Afflek’s facial hair (don’t panic, he doesn’t last the whole picture).

So, only six more to remember, and the year was not wasted…

I really need to get out more in 08 😐
