Saw the US remake (of Brit TV series), State Of Play, just a couple of days ago, and Mirren (cast as the newspaper editor) seemed to be there just for a pay-cheque... saying lines like "and f**k you very much" to Russell Crowe without being funny or even very scathing.
Yes, Mirren was brilliant in Long Good Friday, but that seems to be her career-best performance, nowadays. Meryl Streep is probably (?) Hollywood's equivalent of Mirren, and while Streep just gets better with age, Mirren gets worse, IMHO... Admittedly, though, I haven't seen Mirren in her 'royalty' stuff.
Anyway, moving neatly back on topic...
I wonder if Mirren will be any good in this year's remake of Brighton Rock?
love gangster no 1. Watched it at the cinema with my gf who wasn't enamoured with the language and violence but I had to refuse to leave. Paul Bettany is chilling.
and if I can add a french movie/s - Messrine 1 & 2. Brilliant retro style with an amazing central performance from Vincent Cassel
Get Carter is endlessly rewatchable.
Caine's performance is a powerhouse!
Come. It is time to keep your appointment with the Wicker man.
The first Sweeney film it is for me
John Thaw and Dennis Waterman were the best cop-buddies ever! Love the series and the films.

Sweeney II seems to divide people. I thought it started well but then went downhill towards the end. The first Sweeney was non-stop entertainment, despite Barry Foster's curious American accent.
