Trivia and Quotes

  • One of the best new directors

    Doug Liman is one of my favourite directors of the last 10 years.

    The first time I watch any of his films, I like them, but I don't see them as anything amazing, but what I have noticed is that every film he has made, I have enjoyed even more with each repeat viewing.

    `Go` is now one of my favourite films of all time, my repsect for Matt Damon as an actor grew dramtically after I saw `The Bourne Identity`, and the dialogue on `Swingers` just keeps getting sharper and funnier. `Mr & Mrs Smith` I was a bit dissapointed with, but I have faith that I will grow to love it as time goes on.

    What currently has me screaming for more though is the rumours that he will be creating a brand new martial arts TV series. It's a genre of TV which needs a major overhaul, and I'm sure Doug Liman will not disappoint.moreless
