Brilliant idea, I shall warn you all now, I am in incredible film bore and I apologise in advance.

Batman is film of the year by a country mile, Priceless starring Audrey Tatou is the 2nd best

FACT!

Its a french film with the star of Amile. Yep, I said French.

Its a comedy about a waiter who tries to pull a gold digger, loses all his money and becomes a gold digger himself.

The trailers are the best bit about the cinema, I always get excited about the new films in the pipeline.

I have no intention of watching another Guy Ritchie film until its based outsiide of organised crime and/or London. He really looked like the Tarantino of UK film but turns out he just waits a couple of years, long enough for us to forget Lock Stock, then hammers out the same plot twist filled mockney gangster crap. Im sure its pretty entertaining, but if he wasnt banging madonna I reckon he would be a key grip or making adverts by now.

Good idea. Not a complete loss of time, but such a disappointment nonetheless. Terribly written script. For a movie, and De Niro/Pacino fan, it's almost a crime to make this the film where they finally shared considerable screen time.

Just back from the cinema and dont know if/when this one is out in UK but def worth going to see "Quarantine".

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0758774/

Just check the trailer out on there and pretend you didnt jump once. Watched it with Ling and she almost fell out of her chair twice coz she was so scared! Despite in some parts being predictable with what you are going to see next you still cant help but shit yourself when it actually happens!

In Ring/Ringu fashion, this film is based on the film REC, which I hear is probably worth seeing too/instead.

Watched the trailer for angels and demons, read the book recently and looking forward to this film next may.

Watched 7 films back to back on my HK leg to London.

Wanted  ***
The Incredible Hulk **
Show of Hands **** (my favourite of the 7)
Lost in Translation **** (oldie but a goodie)
The Dark Knight ****
Deception *** (pretty decent movie)
The Terminator *** ( the original)

Was pretty jet lagged by my arrival having watched 2 films on the first leg too from Akl to HK.
Spent some time away playing in the Auckland Sky City Poker Room. The standard of play has increased
significantly since 2005. Probably the Poker Room with one of the best views in the world.

Janet loves Harry Potter films (Weirdo !!), so i took her to The IMAX cinema to see Escape from Azkiban, or what ever one it was in 3D, it was only the last 30mins of the movie but it was very enjoyable, weird at first, but a good laugh.

im defo in for my bloody valentine 3D!

The 9pm is sold out, how g*y, what to do what to do, debating the 11.30 showing...

You going to see this at night time!!!!....your a bigger man than me, im a Saturday afternoon shite bag guy!!

Went to see 'Role Models' instead in the end, 11.30 was a bit late...  Pretty funny, brainless humour but still funny

where exactly can you find out where this is being shown in 3D?

I looked up my local cinema, but it didn't say anything about 3D, usually its specific theaters that do it, but can't find info?

EDIT:

You need to go to their official website

http://www.mybloodyvalentinemovie3d.co.uk/ (http://www.mybloodyvalentinemovie3d.co.uk/)

they list all the cinema's doing it there

Gran Torino      Probably Clint Eastwoods last film.If so he goes out with a performance that will surely guarantee a best actor nomination.

Marisa Tomei makes the film what it is, without her counterpoint to Rourke its just another hackneyed "failed dreamner" story. She gives the story its depth, fine performance and oscar-worthy.

If you have ever seen the documentary 'Beyond the Mat' I think Mickey Rourke comes across in almost the exact same way that Terry Funk and Jake the Snake did in that documentary.

Joobs and I have just finished watching The Stand.

6 fkin hours of a film! Obv based on the Stephen King book of the same name and it's prob the best book-film adaptation ive seen. Considering it was low budget-esque and I think originally made for TV, I was surprised to see such heavyweights (for the time) as Molly Ringwald and Rob Lowe starring in it. Also features Gary Sinise who comes across as the main lead perfectly.

Well worth a watch if you have the time - we split it into 4 parts and watched it over 4 nights.

Finally got around to watching "The boy in the striped pyjamas" tonight.

Maybe it's because I have seen many many documentaries and dramas on the second world war, but this film didn't impact on me very much at all ... I am aware that its target audience is families though, and if a film such as this causes children to ask questions and seek knowledge of the holocaust and its victims then that is a good thing.

I cant leave it there, that film has fucking wound me up tbh ... I wonder how many young people will see it and come away with sympathy for the German family and not even think about the horror of the holocaust.

I really wish I hadn't seen it now.

Eden Lake woohh that was disturbing stuff, and has an ending that is just sick...but very effective.

The hoodies have gone to a new level!

Agree.  Slow start to the film (like a lot of British Films though) but well worth watching.

Donkey Punch is also worth a watch (not as good as Eden Lake IMO) and again a very slow start but stick with it.

Step Brothers - cracked up, especially with the bunk bed scene :-)

Wrestlers - ummm I gave up watching, not a fan of Mickey Rourke.  Will give this one another shot.

The CCurious Case of Ben B - really want to see this


Bone Dry - an old film starring Luke Goss.  If you like the kind of films that have a minimum cast and not a lot of dialogue then this ones for you. I've recommended this one before.

Frost/Nixon...fascinating film about a seminal event. Must see.

The Wrestler..See above comments. V enjoyable

Milk..interesting true story, and a couple of excellent central performances

Valkyrie..enjoyable enough, but lightweight. Teenage girls its central audience

Seven Pounds..Will Smith does Serious but with a plot so clunking you can see the twist about 80 minutes before it happens


in that order IMO

TBH much of a muchness really, agree with you about the twist in the will smith film, it was good but you kinda knew what it was about and where it was going a long way out which made it a lot less impressive than i'd anticipated and i'm still not sure about how good i thought the wrestler was, def liked it just not sure how much yet, one of those ones that will probs sink in over the next couple of days.

Gran Torino - great film, and a fine way for Clint Eastwood to leave acting...

watching that tonight.

i watched this at my mates gaff friday night, not great tbh, his character is exactly the same as in million dollar baby.

it's like he's found the formula for making these award winning films with grumpy/conflicted lead characters and just keeps banging em out, thought it was a bit meh.

Taken starring Liam Neeson is a good action/crime film.
Best one ive seen in a while.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0936501/

also The Crew . British gangster film which is better than Clubbed imo

Cass.             Another poor hooligan movie,just about watchable,no-where near Football factory.

Defiance.       When you stop thinking Daniel Craig is Bond it turns out to be a good film,was really suprised it was a true story.

Dark Knight.   Meh,turned it off.Take that Batman.

Somer town.  By the same director as Dead mans shoes and This is England but alot less bleak.Best film of the day,it's about the friendship between a young
                    runaway(same kid as This is Eng)and a Polish lad.Not alot really happens but it just works,watch it.

No it's okay to waste a few hours on,Tom Cruise is great.

Watched In Bruges,yesterday,never understood what the big deal with Colin Farrell was but he's great in this.Brendan Gleeson is top draw as usual and i went onto watch him in The General(film 4) which is a brilliant film about a gangster in Dublin.

No it's okay to waste a few hours on,Tom Cruise is great.

Tonight I watched                   7 Pounds

Will Smith plays a tax inspector who decides to bankrupt or delay action on people if he thinks they are" Good people"

Its very slow moving and sentimental, romantic and you need 2 boxes of tissues for the ending.

Just finished watching the new Fast and Furious.  I thought it was superb, normally when these films get to the 3rd or 4th in the series of them, they tend to get boring, but this was a good storyline and some superb special effects.  I was on the edge of my seat with some of the car chases and races.

Deffo worth watching.

Watched 3 films the past week or so:

Yes Man - Starring Jim Carrey, i thought was was very funny, not like his usual Ace Vantura/Liar,Liar type of comedy but good stuff.

Twilight -  I only downloaded and watched this for the GF's Benefit TBH, she loves Harry Potter / Lord of the rings etc but i usually doesn't float my boat, this was no different really, i enjoyed the watch however i think its cos i was drinking a bottle of White Zinfindale along with it. I found it more of a comedy that a thriller. The bit when she visits his family at their home is Dynamite lol

Sex Drive - I seem to have downloaded the Unrated Edition from "aXXo", which has tonnes of Tits and naked women just walking past the screen which ain't meant to be in the movie lol, bizarre. Pretty pants film TBH, a shite version of American Pie really, James Marsden playing a total Dick of big Brother is the best part in it.

Shooter is a very good film in that style.

If you are put off by Mark Wahlberg as the lead (I kind of was)...don't be. He's actually good in this role.

Plus there's lots of technical snipery discussion. Anyone who pops heads for fun on xbox /playstation games will love this.

7.8/10 from the cat.

I actually think Jason Statham's pretty good when he's used well.

Crank though is abysmal. One of the most god awful films I've seen. Contrived, ridiculous, annoyingly soundtracked, terrible dialogue. There's a couple of half decent scenes but it's like picking small chocolates out of a huge mountain of dog turd.

Watched Eden Lake under reccomendation.

Definitely a very effective film that had was uncomfortable to watch at times, usually a sign that the filmakers have sucessfully drawn you into the world they've created.

A few minor flaws with the plot, but overall a well done chav horror with echoes of Wolf Creek (prob the best horror film I've seen in the last 10 years) and The Descent in it.

7.9/10
from the Cat.

Did you not think that the ending was as far fetched as you could get, totally spoiled the film imo.

It could have been done better but wasn't completely out of kilter with the rest of the film.

It definitely is uncomfortable. Throughout the film, your instincts are screaming out for justice and I dunno about you but when it was over I felt a bit frustrated and angry, almost like I wanted to go out and belt the nearest chav.

I think that's the key thing about the film though, you see the civilised girl reduced to barbarity by the behaviour of the kids and she becomes as brutal as them in her own way. Andby the end of the film, you feel those primal angry instincts too.

So in a way it works well.

As it was Crow day today , I went to see Russell Crowe in State of Play

Journalist McCaffey ( Crowe ), investigates his old college pal (Ben Affleck),

who leads a case against a government defense contractor.

The clues unfold slowly, and 90% of the film is Crowe talking, its a one man film.

Support comes from Helen Mirren as his boss of the Washington Globe ,

 good tension builder, but would he really follow a hit man into an underground car park armed only with a pen and notebook.

Theres a twist at the end , which helps, 7 out ten, I'm a Russell fan ever since Gladiator

Saw Observe & Report last night.

Started off very strange, big fan of Seth Rogan and he didnt seem on form.
Soon got there though with some hilarious bits.

When they get battered and sort the skate boarding kids, so funny.

All builds up for one of the best endings to a film ever!!

Plus i have never seen the good old phrase 'f*&k yoooou' used so much!

The ending was (in small text for spoilers):


John Connor couldn't stop Skynet and was holed up in the mountain as the nuclear war went on, so he will lead the fightback afterwards.

Whilr in here, watched a few films lately:

Burn after Reading - Possibly the funniest Coen Bro's film (or joint 1st with Lebowski), Brad Pitt is funny in this film, John Malkovich is pure class as usual!

In Bruge - Turn a serious subject into dark comedy, very very up my street, the Irish accent makes this film! The bit with Midget, Hookers and Cocaine is class

Gran Torino - Might be Eastwoods finest work, didn't realise just how funny this film was going to be! His Racism is hilarious through-out (PS im not a racist, just found all the different terms hilarious for the one type of Nation), Best bit in Movie when Eastwood takes the wee boy into the Barber shop! watched that bit about 30 times!!!

Rambo 4 or John Rambo as its known - If you grew up on Rambo and Rocky Films like it did, you'll love this film like i did, yes he is old, yes his voice is slurred, yes the story line is pretty basic(and yes he runs through the jungle at 30MPH at the tender age of 61years old at one point in the film) but at the end of the day, Rambo kicks fekkin ass baby! He is pure Class on that Vehicle Machine Gun.

Really enjoyed The Terminator film yesterday.  Excellent premise for a film, well 'executed' by Cameron and Co.  Alas, this refers to the eighties original which was BBC1's late night film and despite inexplicably being ranked below the second instalment in the IMDb Top 250, is still far and away the best in the series.

As for the latest offering, the machinations of contrived plotting and 'doffing of oil can to the earlier films', leads one to the inevitable conclusion that the only thing this Terminator might salve is insomnia.  Yes folks, yet another soporific sequel.  Imagine a nightmarish vision of the future, a post apocalyptic scene of hellish proportions and when the smoke clears, you're being menaced by a Frankensteinian franchise that refuses to die!

"I'll be back!" has taken on an all together more sinister meaning which really should send shivers down the spine of future cinema-going audiences...

I'm off tomorrow to see Fermat's Room, a dodgy Spanish film from 2007 where they lock four mathematicians in a room and the walls start to come in on them unless they can, I dunno, solve puzzles and shit like that.

The tagline... Think inside the box.  :D

Over/Under for the amount of people who will be in the cinema with me (not including the bird) is 8. The betting starts now, get on.

Really enjoyed The Terminator film yesterday.  Excellent premise for a film, well 'executed' by Cameron and Co.  Alas, this refers to the eighties original which was BBC1's late night film and, despite inexplicably being ranked below the second instalment in the IMDb Top 250, is still far and away the best in the series.

As for the latest offering, the machinations of contrived plotting and 'doffing of oil can to the earlier films', leads one to the inevitable conclusion that the only thing this Terminator might salve is insomnia.  Yes folks, yet another soporific sequel.  Imagine a nightmarish vision of the future, a post apocalyptic scene of hellish proportions and when the smoke clears, you're being menaced by a Frankensteinian franchise that refuses to die!

"I'll be back!" has taken on an all together more sinister meaning which really should send shivers down the spine of future cinema-going audiences...

So what exactly were you hoping for? A remake of Shawshank Redemption perhaps?

If when I see this it's anything but a nightmarish vision of the future I'll be bitterly disappointed.

I really loved it. The acting, direction, script all excellent.

A couple of moments that I enjoyed. A great piece of writing in a part where a guy is describing an accident he had, and a great piece of camerawork where a car goes over a cliff.

If there's a dodgy cinema near you that shows this sort of stuff I would definately recommend.

It starts in the primitive jungle where Jack eats from the forbidden fruit and gets thrown out of his village

He and his sidekick travel to hebrewland and end up in Sodom , thats near Gomorrah.

he nearly marries the princess, but settles for his old girlfriend,

Ok its a road trip movie through the Old testament.

Best actor goes to Vinnie Jones who plays a mad roman guard

Have to disagree Rich, i thought it Knowing was top drawer, but i love anything to do with Math's, Number's and Sequences like the Fibernachi sequence for instance. The Alien part of the movie didn't appeal to me, but the number's and sequence of events leading to something was very intriguing to me.

8.5/10....with or without the Alien tilt to the story

Haven't seen Close encounters cos it look utter pants!

Blood the last Vampire , from the makers of Hero and Crouching Dragon, does exactly what it says on the tin.

Lots of Kill Bill  type sword fights, against hundreds of zombie Ninjas.

The surprise is, its mainly American actors, set in an American Air Base in 1970 Tokyo.

The General's Daughter is rescued by Sire a 16 year old immortal half vampire samurai expert, of course.

Its ok If you liked Kill Bill. It Opens in UK next week, watched it on line tonight, seems like a good ninja movie

lol tighty.

To be honest, the story was very very simple and basic, it didn't need anything else, so if there was anything missing from the book, i guess JK just rambled on when writing it.

What exactly was missing from the story line?

Films should not be like books.

Different medium, you can show us much more, represent things in a completely different way. Chunks should be left out, and maybe other bits added in a decent adaptation imo.
Haven't seen the new Harry Potter film or read the relevant book, this is just me making a point in principle.

Saw Scorsese's Age of Innocence yesterday. It was exactly like the book (not a bad book, read it last week) and the acting was decent (Winona Ryder, Daniel-Day Lewis) but it was still a shit film.
The reason was that the adaptation was so lazy. A 3rd person narrator just reading chunks of text lifted straight from the book all the time. Tilted me up good and proper. If I want a book I'll fooking read one.

Superbad was a teen comedy (What i like to call 'Will farrell humour')
Adventureland was more of a movie centered around young romance, with some comedy (Not 'Will Farrell humour') thrown in.

Adventureland was still a good movie, and still had some funny bits in it, The main charactor is a pretty 'Cool' Geek too. Kristen Stewart is becoming a real woman now too!

This film is a rip off of those 80's Molly Ringwold films, quite a good rip off I agree.

Best good "bad" film I have seen this week is Big Stan.

Went to see The Time Travellers Wife this weekend - I think I may have preferred the book.  Him running about naked stealing clothes when he time travelled, and not changing the future so he knew he would die but he did get the lottery numbers so they got $5million- plain stupid if you ask me.

The time travellers wife.

If I could travel through time, the first thing I would do is go back 2 hours and get a refund on the cost of cinema tickets .. what a crock of shit !!


Brownie points have been earned, I intend to cash them in immediately (although I nearly lost them for saying "Well that's 2 hours of my life that I am never getting back" just as the lights came on ... cue sighs from women around us and sniggers and knowing nods from the fellas)

Its not a "RomCom" its a love story and a bad one at that ... the main character going back in time to an 8 year old girl that he all but groomed to marry him in later years was bordering on paedophilia imo. 

The story was incredibly lightweight and I absolutely hated it ... I would go as far to say that it is without doubt the worst film I have ever paid money to see in a cinema.

Women will enjoy it, blokes will not ... use the brownie points wisely, because they will be VERY hard earned.

Watchmen (9/10) - Im really glad i did TBH, it was a super film! to often we see superheroes film towing the same old line (Young stud becomes super powered, stops bad guys, then gets the girl).....well not in this film baby! Superheroes are just normal humans choosing to be masked heroes, apart from 'Mr Manhattan', we also have tonnes of violence, swearing, drinking and sex......and thats just from the superheroes!

1 point to note, i can honestly say ive never seen two superheroes Fucking in a movie before!

Awesome film!

Decided to watch 'The Spirit' last night at work - 3/10 - What a fuckin weird film, i know its from the creator of Sin City but even that had a semi half decent story! I actually stopped it after 20 mins and messed about online for an hour, then got bored so attempted to watch the rest. It didn't get any better.........although there is one scene with Eva Mendez Naked in it!!! Blurred full frontal, but fully focused rear end shot, and what a fuckin ass she has! this is the only reason this film didn't get 1/10!

Saw 'Funny People' - about an hour too long, tried to be too many different types of films. The stand up elements were funny and a rare movie where Adam Sandler was good, rather than a steaming bag of cow dung.

Just seen District 9.

It's no Matrix but it's quality alright. Has more of a feel of Cloverfield about it than anything.
Never anything less than believable, which is pretty amazing given what we're being asked to believe.
Agree with Tanky, the lead character is top drawer.
8/10 for me imo

I thought it was crap (just one word review is all it deserves).  It is also the only movie I've ever left the cinema before the end.

Just watched it,really enjoyed it.I take Tank's point about it turning into a run of the mill action/chase movie at the end but it wasn't enough to spoil the overall film.

The CGI was really well done considering the relatively low budget.

Seen District 9

Its documentary style, hand held camera action ,following only one character,Wickus Van Dickus gets a bit samey.

The parallels to minority persecution of ghetto black americans is humorous.

Theres no romantic sub plot so the girlies won't like it

Saw (500) days of summer tonight. Maybe had read too many good reviews, as I left disappointed.

I'm no expert on rom coms, or rom, or com come to think of it, but there was zero chemistry between the two lead characters imo.

Zooey Deschanal was prob OK all things considered but it never quite worked for me, maybe because I saw her in that M.Night Shakatak disgrace last summer, but just an all right performance, no more than that. Needed a wackier actress. Someone like Juliette Lewis ten years ago would have been perfect.

Heres a link to the 6 minute short 'Alive in joburg', which the director made before District 9.  Same story as the feature length as it evolved from this short.  An interesting watch.

I watched the break up last night, what a great film, not at all what you'd expect from that sort of film, didnt follow any of the normal hollywood conventions for that genre and was really easy to watch, jennifer aniston has established herself in her own right as a genuine hollywood actress and i just really enjoyed it.

the ending was also really good, not at all what i expected, so many hollywood films dont know how to do an ending these days but this was just right for a film that didnt really follow the usual template for that sort of film

Watched the new film by Tim Burton Tonight called " 9"

“9” is an animated film about nine stitched burlap robot dolls (which the director, Shane Acker, calls “stitchpunks”).

The nine dolls are living in a post-apocalyptic landscape after a war between humans and machines has decimated the Earth. They were created by a scientist to be humanity’s last hope.

Its not his best effort   4 out of ten

Posted this a while back on another thread

I have watched recently

Rise of the footsoldier http://www.riseofthefootsoldier.co.uk/

Now I am a big fan of the footy hooligan films .. ID (will always be the best imo) , Green Street, Football Factory and who remembers "The Firm", a late 80's TV film with Gary Oldman that was quality too ... 

Anyway, Rise of the footsoldier ... charts the rise up the criminal underworld ladder of Carlton Leach from one of the main boys of the ICF to a big player in a feared london underworld gang in the late 80's.  It is based on a true story.

It is scarily violent, sickeningly so at times... yet compulsive viewing.  Although you cannot seriously take to any of the characters in the film, you cant help but want to know the outcome. The film plays heavily on the Range rover killing at Rettendon in Essex.

It certainly isnt a chick flick, but its certainly one to get on the box if the Mrs is having a girly night out with her mates... Good Film.




Second one was "Daylight Robbery" http://www.daylightrobberymovie.com/

British robbery film ... story has been done to death, think italian job, etc etc   story centres around a bank job during the world cup ... a group of lads check in at the airport, then sod off to rob a bank and get back to the airport and go to Germany to watch england in the world cup.

I thoroughly enjoyed it ... had a few twists and turns but was very predictable ... if you are a fan of gritty british gangster/bank job films ... get these 2 films watched ... you wont be disappointed

Will have to go to the flicks to watch the remake .... I think I will be disappointed, but we will see.

The Firm...

A remake of the 1988 tv drama ... but very different, Oldman's portrayal of Bex was infinitely better than this guys ... the only advice I would give anyone going to see this would be, Ignore the original and treat this as a different film altogether.

It was good, but the gritty, menacing and bordering on psychopathic Bex, didnt hit as hard as the original.

Great soundtrack, some genuine LOL moments, average movie overall.

been on a roll lately and seen some good solid films

The Kingdom - Jamie Foxx really enjoyed this one not as intelligent as it makes out but decent enough

State of Play - remake of the BBC drama but with Affleck and Russel Crowe actually think they did a better job with the material enjoyable thriller tho spoilt slightly by the fact if you seen the BBC version you know how it ends

Role Models - dumb but enjoyable , dont usually like these films but this caught me in the mood

as for the Zombieland trailer that looks good but as stated a SOTD ripoff

Im not down on "stoner" movies (i like jay silent bob , Harold & Kumar were decent) PE just wasnt that good.

Away We Go

Something very serendipitous about stumbling across this masterpiece imo.
It looked like it shouldn't be on the Huntingdon Cineworld schedule for some reason, especially not screening at 10.45am on a Sunday morning.
Of a normal week they'd reserve 12 screens for Ice Age 3 and one for some other pile of crap.
I didn't bother looking at the reviews, just saw it was directed by Sam Mendes (preferred Road To Predition and Revolutionary Road to American Beauty of his previous stuff, even though RR is hard work; also exec produced The Kite Runner, one of the best movies ever imo).
I was the only one in there, which was nice and surreal.
Defo top ten of 2009 material for me.

On TV , Stargate Universe has started in USA,

The new series starts very much like SG Atlantis , with a crew arriving on an ancients starship, that has 9 dialing chevrons instead of 8.

There are many new cast members, who are 18 to 25, to appeal to younger viewers,

 and cameo appearances from Jack O'Neil and Amanda Tapping.

Only Robert Carlyle is the familiar face of the "Clever Scientist".

It starts very slow with 90 minutes of the 2 part pilot, ( thats with no add breaks ) so it will be at least 2 hours long on Sky

If the later episodes fit the usual format of a 1 hour show it may be watchable

The pilot was far too long and slow

Heres the trailer

I enjoyed Drag Me To Hell, its done in an old school horror way and tongue in cheek, not to be taken too seriously (like Sam Raimi's own Evil Dead 2), it was a change to most recent horrors been a selection of people been tortured with no story...

Some good recent horrors imo...The Mist, The Strangers, Eden Lake, and the above Trick R Treat.

Just borrowed my nephew to go watch 'Up'.

Possibly the best yet imo from Pixar, who never get it wrong. Top class.

Surely can't be better than toy story ??

And +1 to what trigg said bout pelham 123 thought it was very good although denzel plays just as big a part as travolta,denzel = the nuts

Honestly I think they're getting better all the time. I'd also have Wall-E in my top two, so that's their last two jobbies at one-two for me.

Haven't posted on here recently, but have seen a s**t ton of films so a quick round up from the cat.

Fritt Vilt

Seems like the english-speaking countries have struggled to put out any good horror films in recent times, so the Norwegians have gone and shown us how to do it.

I liked Fritt Vilt, had some good moments and made me jump once or twice - a rarity for a horror film hack like me.

Snow and blood just go together so well!

 ;scarymoment; ;scarymoment; ;scarymoment; ;scarymoment; ;scarymoment; ;scarymoment; ;scarymoment; (7) and a half out of 10.

Fritt Vilt 2

After Fritt Vilt 1 was a success, they could have mailed it in but actually made a decent sequel - far fetched obv, but good job anyway.

 ;scarymoment; ;scarymoment; ;scarymoment; ;scarymoment; ;scarymoment; ;scarymoment; ;scarymoment; out of 10

Antichrist


Oh god. This lay somewhere between artistic genius and pretentious bulls**t. With some gory/ painful bits in.

Pretentious bullshit
......... ;madasahatstand;..................................................Artistic Genius

Somewhere about there seems right.

There was some beautiful cinematography for sure, but can't really give it top marks for sheer aesthetics due to the prominence of Willem Defoe's bare ass, which has more screentime than his face I think. Some may not notice the difference...

Anyway, I guess it's one to watch and decide for yourself but just a

 ;bumwiggle; ;bumwiggle; ;bumwiggle; ;bumwiggle; ;bumwiggle; (5) out of 10 for me.

The Children

Actually really enjoyed this!

Slow-paced but creepy and more blood on snow which you may have gathered I'm a fan of..

Voted film most likely to have you shout out "Just drop-kick the little f***ers through a window!"

Im a huge movie fan and watch more movies than most people on here, Bad Boys will always be my Fav movie of all time, but at the moment Trans 1 and 2 are 2nd and 3rd, this is only for this week tho, and next week will defo have a new 2nd and 3rd. Its just preference at that time.

Transformers 1 and 2 will be long forgotten in 10 years, as the storyline is nil points, and the characters are non existent, it stood out because of the brilliant effects, but these will be the norm for direct to Dvd films as these get cheaper to produce. Take Jaws for example, yeah the shark looks fake now, but it has three brilliant central characters and a great script, so 35 years later it is regarded as a classic and enjoyed by new generations...

Post by: Acidmouse on October 15, 2009, 01:00:07 PM
Jonathon Ross had a cracking review on Transformers 2. Basically said it was not a film because it lacked a plot, acting, script etc etc. If you want to see special effects it was great, but that's not the point of a movie to me. It's fair that some people don't want to certain things from films and just like to escape and fair do's to them, this would be ideal to those.

I want a film to educate, enlighten or have a lasting impression on me for it to be in my top 20 list. The emotions and soundtrack from midnight cowboy, the scene's of sheer hell from Deer hunter (along with the soundtrack), the err robot smashing another car in transformers 2......

Sounds a bit snobby but I doubt you would be able to tell me one thing about these shitty throw away movies in 5 years time.

Personally I really enjoyed transformers. I haven't seen Transformers 2 but I'm sure that I will enjoy that as well.

However they can't be great films because I doubt I'll ever watch either more than once.

Now Aliens (my fave film of all time) I've seen countless times and could recite most of it word for word. So many great lines and characters it's untrue.

Another great is pulp fiction. Again there are so many quotable lines.

This is how I guage a film. How much of it do you remember? If it's not a lot it probably wasn't that good.

Not a great film unless the script and screenplay matches the effects. In Transformers it's nowhere near


Here's 200 to go at for starters. Don't see transformers anywhere lol

http://digitaldreamdoor.nutsie.com/pages/movie-pages/movie_sci-fi.html



Ill say again

Everyone has an opinion, and everyones opinions are different, everyone has different views, and my view is that today they are both in my top 3.

Each to there own, i know people that absolutely loved There will Be Blood, which is one of the worst films ive ever seen, but thats there choice.

Shai LaBeouf for an Oscar IMHO in that movie

nice level dave you have everyone confused

which part is to difficult for you to understand and ill break it dowwn for you mate

Not in order (apart from the first one)

Aliens
Rocky
Pulp Fiction
Shawshank Redemption
Jaws
Goodfellas
Trading Places
Platoon
Predator
Terminator

This is a very good list! Only changes would be terminator and platoon out, moulin rouge and dirty dancing in!

Yeah Dirty Dancing's one of the best chick flicks going. Not seen Moulin Rouge though but I can't see it knocking Arnie out of my top ten tbh.

Tell you another really good film that I can't put on my list due to my need to remain heterosexual....

Grease......

If there's 1 person on this whole forum who doesn't know the words to at least one of the tracks from that film I'd be really shocked.

Apparently 21st December 2012 is the end of the world

So why are we spending millions building the olympic city in London

The film trailer looks good .   Roland Emmerich  does it again

John Cusack stars  in                    2012

It's all too easy I think to not take your kids to the cinema, wait for the DVD. Easy all round. Except I like to think that taking the kids to the cinema occasionally is something that can infuse them with love for good films, and the experience of seeing them on a big screen. As long as you can avoid the pic'n'mix ("make sure you choose lightweight sweets kids" to blank looks from them and chortles from other parents) and the like, job's a good un.

Up is a great film. Pixar has gone beyond making animated films that are good stories and actually makes good films that happen to be animated. I also like films that work on two levels. A recent example is the book Coraline: exciting thriller for kiddies, even more of a nailbiter for adults. A more perennial example are the Looney Tunes cartoons, which can be enjoyed by kids but were made for adults and work perfectly on both levels.

Up is like a very grown up version of a Looney Tune. Kids watch it and will no doubt find it a version of "My First Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World." Look, a big funny bird. A funny old man. A talking dog. More talking doggies! And the film works on that level. The dog bits alone will entertain people of any age.

But for adults, the film hits the big Ls: Love, Life and Loss. I don't want to go too much into this lest I spoil the effect for you, but it's literally like you're watching a different film from your kid. They probably won't catch subtle things like an empty chair and What That Means. And they probably won't understand why you spend a good portion of the first fifteen minutes of the film with tears rolling down your face. So be warned. It's not even the loss of a loved one--no, because that's almost too easy. It's coupled with how you deal with the loss of a dream.

So for kids, an adventure movie. For adults, something with a lot more depth.

The 3-D aspect of the film isn't overplayed.You don't get an In Your Face moment. It's just for gorgeous, stunning depth. When you're dealing with South American jungle vistas then depth is good for you.

Pixar continues to blow away notions of animation and it's clear that they are working to change our notion of animation and could get us where we need to be in Western cinema: catching up to Japan, where animation can be for all ages not just kids.

I loved it. Very poignant, and very entertaining. 9 tighty stars out of 10

Absolute agree with you about UP, (I mean its not 2 CGI robots hitting each other) but it might just be film of the year.  Amazing how Pixar consistently delivers.





I thought Bruce Willis was just phoning it in, although i did like the premise, your right just didn't click.

Went last night.  I think to be fair if your compare it to the first is obv pretty poor, but it did tie nearly everything up and I think thats about all that can be asked, I went with low expectations which is hard as I loved the first, even the first 2/3, so went out of the cinema with a feeling of inner contentment.

Michael Jacksons  " This is it "

Watched it last night, its great.

All the favorite songs are there, Billy jean ,Beat it, Smooth Crimenal.

Filmed by the side of stage, they dont wear the full costumes just jeans for rehearsals, but the dancing is amazing.

The sound is mixed well , so the tracks are complete,

They had planned CGI effects for backstage , but only a few are shown,

Its part" the making of",which adds to the story.

9 out of 10

Law Abiding Citizen - 7.7/10, worth a watch.

Paranormal Activity - 6.5/10, wouldn't put any Blair Witch fans off of this film. Bit headache inducing with the camera work but if you can get past that its actually not bad.

Men Who Stare at Goats - 1/10, don't bother with it - load of crap. No story to it and not even that funny.

Harry Brown

Just back from the flicks and desperate to write about the film ...

It is a movie split into two parts, the first part of the movie aims to get the audience on Harry's side, to feel sympathy for him and to loath the actions and behaviour of the hoodies, it works well and works quick.

Caine is well ... Caine, you know what you are going to get, but he pulls this off imo, he is both believable and yet vulnerable.

The second part is rapid, you already have loathing for the gangs, and Harry Brown is ruthless in his actions yet you want to cheer as one by one he just disposes of the scum from the estate.

Overall I have to say that the film lived up to all my expectations, I thoroughly enjoyed it ... yet felt slightly disturbed by the fact that the film is not as far fetched as perhaps those living in suburbia would like to think, not the old guy turned vigilante part, rather the terror and fear that these gangs command on many inner city estates up and down the country.

Go see it, Caine plays the part well, the villains are believable and the film as a whole just works ... It is shot in a dark, moody way and while depressing at times you cannot help but root for Brown ... yet despite all of that, you don't leave the cinema with a sense of justice, more a realisation that the situation faced by Harry Brown is faced tonight by real people in real places.

great film, very highly recommended.

Great review of Harry Brown Kev

I went to see this today, thought the directing was excellent, nice long scenes allowing the actors a chance to act and where applicable, the tension time to mature.

In the case of Michael Caine and the kids from the estate this was a great thing, lots of tremendous performances here. The police characters, however, were found a bit wanting. Whether this was down to their characters being a bit cliched or their acting being a bit Hollyoakish I don't know, maybe a little bit of both.

The mood was just right, lots of little touches here and there, like you never see Caine and his pal with full pints, they're always just finishing off the last few flat sups.
The other bit I really liked was that it's Harry Brown's compassion that tips the cops on to him. The good guy doing bad things is discovered by the one good thing he did rather than all the bad things.

Film could have been one for the ages but was spoiled in act V where...

Spoiler-ish moan below

Was spoiled in act V where all the protaganists still standing were bundled together in the same place by a series of unlikely plot devices for a final showdown with a tiresomely predictable outcome. Came out of the cinema thinking 'whatever' rather than the 'wow' that most of the film had me thinking would be my reaction. It was just such a lazy way to end an otherwise well written film. I'm probably in the minority here. The bird loved it and can't see what I'm moaning about.

Saw The Fourth Kind this arvo. Meh. Not as good as the trailers made it look. A lot of very deliberate acting. Just about enough to keep you hooked to the end.
Missed Harry Brown by about ten mins, now sort of wished I hadn't. Oh well, tomorrow ftw.
Milla Jovavich still on the tasty side of ordinary but final 15mins way outdoes the first hour and a bit.
3/10 Max.

Saw Harry Brown earlier.
Unnecessarily bleak imo, just too dark. Watchable but not in the same league as Gran Torino for me, which does a similar job but with more charm and the odd much-needed lighter moment.
Just about worth sitting through but couldn't imagine sitting through it again.
Michael Caine good as always.
Otherwise 5/10 for me at best.

Sorry you didn't like it, I loved it and preferred it to Shawshank. It was nominated for 'Best Film' at the Irish TV and Film Awards, unlike Shawshank.
Unsure how it draws much from Shawshank at all, apart from on a couple of basic ideas that the two happen to share in common. In fact, I found them two radically different films.

I preferred the Escapist to Shawshank but I still love Shawshank.

I agree that it's very popular, not sure that this is normally any measure of film quality, maybe the opposite in many cases. Shawshank definitely not my Number 1 film of all time, not in my top 30, but I can see why for many people it is.

Everyone will find a few personal stinkers in here, or question their positions: http://www.imdb.com/chart/top

I read a big review of 'all time best films' in one of the big sunday papers a couple of weeks back and was surprised that they chose to put 'Cache' (Hidden) near the top, but I would place it right up there also. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0387898/ On IMDB it only got 7.2/10........ Far superior film to Shashwank imo.

If only Stephen King hadnt stolen his whole storyline from Escape from Alcatraz

Sorry, but LOL!

Damn that Stephen King, can't he think of anything to write?!  ;)

I love Stephen King, and have enjoyed many of his books and a few of those that were made into films, but the fact that he is a great writer doesnt mean that he didnt steal an idea from someone else, to write his short story which turned into the Shawshank movie

My girlfriend had pre booked tickets for New Moon ( Twighlight 2) for opening night ( Friday)..her excitement growing as the day approached ( big fan of the books )..It was packed as expected, arriving late ( adverts started lights half down ) we managed to blag the best premier seats in the house, dead centre big and comfy with an acre of leg room as the only ordinary seats were under the screen involving a 78 degree neck crane..

I did have to endure my partner squirming for the first 10 minutes of the film in case someone came along demanding why we were in their seats, but the moment never came and good viewing was assured..

The film was reasonable,obv aimed at teenage and girly market.... a stretched out moody love story, that dragged a bit early doors, interspersed with vamp and werewolf action..plot lines all very predictable..
It also felt the need for the werewolf characters to always run through the woods in their shorts displaying buff toned gym bodies aplenty, bringing with it a vocal collective approval and a smile to my Lady's face...
The lovey bits were greeted with gentle ah's from the audience..and when Bella tells Jacob ( its amazing what a haircut can do,the boy was transformed ) its always been Edward and always has been him you could hear female hearts breaking like crunched popcorn.

 Robert Pattinson should keep his shirt on although my description of him as a skinny arsed wanker was met with disapproval from my companion,she still preferring him like Bella over Buff boy....women..i'll never understand them.

It all ends perfectly to ensure number 3 breaks money records and the ladies of the world will be counting the days for its release..

All in all i didn't mind it,enjoyable enough and my girlfriend is already booking to see it again with her female friends... i have equipped them with bibs for the hunky bits.

7/10  not as bad as real men think it is

2012 is the best comedy of the year.
Some classic LOL moments, including when the queen got on board one of the arks walking a couple of corgis. Better than Borat at his best that bit.
Too long, too much unnecessary relationship crap in cliche form but John Cusack very good. Thandie Newton more wooden than Noah's blueprint.
Went thinking I'll give it an hour and then switch to another screen but stayed with it to the end.
5/10 imo.

I've just gone back to your review Tighty and defo had read it before. Some of your comments obv stuck.
It's annoying. 2012 could have been so much better cutting out such obvious minor problems, like a shite supporting cast and an uber shite script. Keep John Cusack, change the rest, including Woody Harrelson, who turned in his worst effort ever. FFS, he's so much better than that.
Still it was a mile better than Independence Day, so maybe the director will make it third time lucky.

I loved the first 1 it was awesome, but in the American release they stopped it when she got out of the cave and into her car and it's following on from there I believe, I think the Juno girl may have made it out of the caves on the american version also.

Prefer the British ending but also glad to see another film because the 1st was awesome.

Sledgey baby D9 9/10????

District 9 is definitely not 9/10, it's one of the worst films i've ever seen, I admit I only watched half of it but there was no action, the main character was an idiot as were the prawns and hearing south african accents for longer than 10 minutes should not be allowed in any film unless they're killed at the end like in Beverly hills cop.

If someone gave it 2/10 I would disagree that the film is that good but I would accept that it is there own opinion, but anything more and I have to speak out against it...especially on a 9!!


I concur with your views of 'A Perfect Getaway' though, maybe if it wasn't full of plot holes the twist could make a half decent film. The lack of titillation was shameful.

Paranormal Activity just works. There was no point at which I felt it didn't and it builds up nicely the whole way through.
It's probably best watched with the cinema full if possible for comedy value.
There were a couple of teenage girls down the front at sunny Huntingdon, one of whom spend about the last ten minutes screaming and ran out of the cinema at the end.
Can only be 10/10 imo.

Up

It's all too easy I think to not take your kids to the cinema, wait for the DVD. Easy all round. Except I like to think that taking the kids to the cinema occasionally is something that can infuse them with love for good films, and the experience of seeing them on a big screen. As long as you can avoid the pic'n'mix ("make sure you choose lightweight sweets kids" to blank looks from them and chortles from other parents) and the like, job's a good un.

Up is a great film. Pixar has gone beyond making animated films that are good stories and actually makes good films that happen to be animated. I also like films that work on two levels. A recent example is the book Coraline: exciting thriller for kiddies, even more of a nailbiter for adults. A more perennial example are the Looney Tunes cartoons, which can be enjoyed by kids but were made for adults and work perfectly on both levels.

Up is like a very grown up version of a Looney Tune. Kids watch it and will no doubt find it a version of "My First Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World." Look, a big funny bird. A funny old man. A talking dog. More talking doggies! And the film works on that level. The dog bits alone will entertain people of any age.

But for adults, the film hits the big Ls: Love, Life and Loss. I don't want to go too much into this lest I spoil the effect for you, but it's literally like you're watching a different film from your kid. They probably won't catch subtle things like an empty chair and What That Means. And they probably won't understand why you spend a good portion of the first fifteen minutes of the film with tears rolling down your face. So be warned. It's not even the loss of a loved one--no, because that's almost too easy. It's coupled with how you deal with the loss of a dream.

So for kids, an adventure movie. For adults, something with a lot more depth.

The 3-D aspect of the film isn't overplayed.You don't get an In Your Face moment. It's just for gorgeous, stunning depth. When you're dealing with South American jungle vistas then depth is good for you.

Pixar continues to blow away notions of animation and it's clear that they are working to change our notion of animation and could get us where we need to be in Western cinema: catching up to Japan, where animation can be for all ages not just kids.

I loved it. Very poignant, and very entertaining. 9 tighty stars out of 10

Tighty's critque is so spot on nothing to add but i enjoyed it immensely.


Just watched Surrogates,visually stunning,great cgi and an interesting story premise but it just didn't click.Bruce Willis was great though.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0986263/

Dissapointing but not a total waste of time.

I must be too shallow, watched UP and thought it was extremely dull, I can't imagine many kids finding it memorable or something they would watch over & over

LOL, wonder how many more will leave Paranormal Activity believing it's a true story? Prob lots imo. Lead actors both use their real names and she does come across as a bit wooden at times.

Just seen The Descent 2. It's almost identical to the first one.
Gather round the top of the cave, go down into the cave, ceiling collapses, group splits up, carnage with flesh-eaty fellas.
Different director to the first one and not much he could have done better imo.
Can't make the monsters any different, can't make the setting any different, so what could he do?
Not tez but all very predictable.
3/10

watched "You Don't Mess With The Zohan" the other night on sky movies, at first was very skeptical due to how ridiculous it was, however after a while the silliness became bareable and it just became an easy watch, would probably watch again however you definitely have to be int he mood for it.


on the same night i watched "Pineapple Express"  which i personally thought was amazing, very funny through out, wasnt too long and had a good (non cheesy) ending, would 100% recommend

Films wot I've seen this year:

The good:
Burn After Reading: 9/10
Moon: 8/10
Fish Tank: 8/10
Sin Nombre: 7/10
Le Donk & ScorZayZee: 7/10
Anvil: The Story of Anvil: 7/10
Marley and Me: 7/10

The bad:
Slumdog Millionaire: 4/10
District 9: 3/10

Off to see 'A Serious Man' on Friday. Expecting great things. Burn After Reading was my favourite Cohen brothers film to date, even if it was reviewed harshly by most critics.

I love a decent horror film, but Paranormal Activity was a massive letdown after all the hype, well done on the hype machine behind it as without it this film would be barely mentioned. Very slow and dull for most, with the only slight scare been the odd loud noise on the soundtrack...

4/10

tbh i though tht was the point of the movie? to build the tension, i think its suppose to be more a of a skitzy film than an out and out horror, i havent seen the updated version thats in the cinema but i saw the original that was released in 2007 and found it really good, the scenes i found especially freaky were the ones with the girlfriend sleewalking

There is no denying i love big blockbuster CGI films, and loads of others do too. I haven't seen it yet, but really looking forward to it. As long as John Cusack is good ill be happy, one of my fav Actors since Grosse Point Blank, and Jeremy Piven too since that movie.

I do also like Clean crisp story lines/acting too you know.

They spent so much on the CGI, they didn't have enough money for a script... absolute dross !!


Rich and CH10 MPY both said there were some LOL moments, I never stopped laughing !!

The bit where they switch on the camera when matey is under the water... HILARIOUS !!  and the last line "no more pull ups" i almost needed them myself as I pissed myself laughing !!  ... I was half expecting the dad to say... "Oh good the end of the world was worth it if it means you have stopped pissing the bed".

Congrats 2012, you have made it into the top 1 of the worst films I have ever endured at the cinema ... Time travellers wife has been knocked of it's perch, and that took some doing. wp wp wp !!

Flicks tonight ... 2012 or paranormal activity ?

Paranormal by a country mile.
And pic'n'mix over popcorn every time. Anyone that bonks popcorn should get a lifetime cinema ban imo.

Except for the 'hole in the base' trick.

Which always seems to amuse me much more than the girl I'm first-dating  :dontask:

Just been to see The Box. Oh dear.

Quick review - Tez.

Slightly longer review - Imagine M.Night Shyte-amalan (unknown director obv liked The Happening for some reason) watches an old episode of The Twilight Zone, thinks 'Hmm, I could make a movie out of that' and then proceeds to draw awful performances from all the actors, including Cameron Diaz (kid wasn't bad to be fair). It was obv from about five mins in that this was just an adaptation of a short story, and it fizzles out and meanders rather than goes anywhere in the last half hour. There's just about enough there for an hour to make you want to stay for the end, but I wished I hadn't when it got there.

1.5/10. Guff.

Ok I think quite a lot of pretty sexy software has filtered down now so you can do a lot of nice effects at home, if you know what you're doing, and used to cost 200K to get a machine to render it all 10 years ago, now Dell make them...

But it's one thing to make the effects, another thing to make something where your jaw drops. Just feels so....real

Imagine the money and 'expertise' they threw at 'Induhpendence Day' and 'War of the Worlds'. They sure felt anything like that just did...

Unreal tezzness, even in 1996 when it came out I could'nt believe how bad it was...maybe you ignore parts like near the end when they get in the alien ship, and just happen to know the controls and can fly the thing...oh and hes drunk aswell, it wasn't meant to be a comedy...couple of good Cgi scenes and nothing else much like your other faves... 8)

I thought independence day was pretty terrible too, the only good part was when the white house was blown up...that looked pretty awesome. But I can't remember what happened in the film really, some ships appear start attacking people run around for a while then an old man kamakaze's the mothership?

Nah The Day After Tomorrow was a bit different to Roland Emmerich's usual Cgi bilge (Godzilla, Independence Day, 10,000 Bc), the effects actually had a big bearing on the story and characters, ie the weather...yeah enjoyed that one.

Will Smith is great but dude he has made some BAD film choices.

Picks I Robot instead of something huge the same year (cant remember what). Ditches The Matrix in favour of Wild Wild West. Turned down Men in Black until his wife told him to go for it. Actually turned up for Bad Boys II. The list is pretty shocking when you read into it.

I Robot is awesome, i have he DVD. If you cant take anything else out of it, at least it introduced the world to Shia LeBouef (Charlie's Angels doesn't count, he was too young)

Glad he turned down Matrix, awesome an amazing trilogy, and Reeves made it awesome.

Men in Black wasn't that great tho

Bad Boys II is excellent. never as good as the 1st, but you will never top the 1st movie

Note, i actually seen Bad Boys in an Open Air Cinema in the Czech Republic!, it was basically just a huge wall painted white and they beamed the movie onto it, it was in the middle of all these huge tree's.....wierd but awesome

Saw Avatar yesterday. 3D.
Ultimately it didn't live up to the hype for me.
Can see Crow's Starship Troopers reference too, a few bits of insta zoom camera work.
The last half-hour was pretty spectacular but the rest was hardly a roller-coaster ride.
Wouldn't particularly want to see it a second time and defo couldn't find it a spot in the year's top ten.
7/10.

Just saw avatar and thought it was fab.

I don't usually like digital effect films, but this one worked for me. I like stuff written by one man rather than most CGI shitey blockbusters that are obviously written by a team and have no real sense of overall narrative.

While the allegory in this film is open to interpretation, we essentially have an American style militia dikking over a local population for its resources, it's very hard to see Fox News types being a big fan of this. We've got other stuff in there like stem cell research, promotion of ecology/enviromentalism, tolerance of other religions/spirituality, it's very much lefty propoganda here. Kinboshi would like

The plot was pretty tight. Nothing introduced in act V unless we'd seen it set up in act II and nothing set up in act II that wasn't used in act V. There's no incongruous pot smoking scene wedged in there because focus groups react well to pot smoking scenes, this is one man's vision and it works. My only quibble was after the epic battle they felt the need to do the obligatory Steven Seagal/Jean Claude Van Damme movie magic showdown pisch between the main goodie and the main baddie, (and the girl... why not) Fk that tired shit, this film did not need it.

The acting from Zoe Saldana (neer heard of her, had to look up the name) as the alien princess was very moving in places. Can't fault the other players, no one stunk up the place.

Then we have the visuals, the absolutely stunning location that they've knocked up in MS paint or however it is these guys work. It's breathtaking, that the story held my interest too is a rare thing in this type of film.

I'd give it 9/10

SHERLOCK HOLMES

I was a bit apprehensive about this one tbh... I'm a big Holmes fan and see Jeremy Brett as the epitome of the whole Sherlock Holmes ethos...

Guy Ritchie has made a good stab at this and to be honest if this was a stand alone film it wouldn't be too bad.

But clothed in the Holmes shroud I'm afraid Guy was always running against the wind... you see he just misses the whole point of the Holmes world..the Victorian atmosphere, the attention to detail, the nuances of the characters...

What we end up with is a type of Buddy/cop action film whose two main leads happen to be called Holmes & Watson.

Downey comes across as an oddball adrenaline junkie who thinks a bit.Jude law doesn't make a bad Watson  but once again his just a bit on the tough side for a mild mannered English gentleman doctor.

All in all a reasonable yarn and romp and left wide open for a sequel just in case box office receipts warrant it with the promise of a true introduction of the darkly mysterious Moriarty...

However it fell short for me, although like most who enjoy the genere I think it would have to be exceptional to make a real impression..

6.5/10

Sky Movies were doing a review of the Jighs and Lows of 2009, and this was classed as a Low:

LOW: TRANSFORMERS 2 MAKING SO MUCH MONEY
There was a lot of class this year in cinema.

From Let The Right One In to Slumdog Millionaire, any number of movies deserved to take the top spot in the charts.

But by the end, one of the biggest movies of the year, and all time, was the universally derided Transformers 2, the film that was the cinematic equivalent of standing drunk in a scrapyard while the army fired live rounds at you. Only not as exciting.

Rarely has a film been so unpopular, yet made so much money.



WTF, and we watching the same movie here, are Sky Movie Idiots!!!............ Trans 2 was F***ing Class!

Cameron seems to think he's making the next Lord of the Rings but doesn't realise he's made the next 2012 - great special effects but no characters, no plot, no dialogue. Actually, scrap that; at least 2012 had a sense of its own ridiculousness, whereas Avatar is so po-faced it hurts.

South Park was right - Avatar =  Dances With Smurfs.

Anyone see Johnathan Ross review of 2009 films last week.

Being the end of year show, I was hoping to see a viewer vote for  best film ,

but all we got were celebs asked what film they liked in 2009, with no comment of, quality, script or Special Effects

They edited it so that every film got a mention and they showed only about 10 seconds of a few  trailers .

Near the end of the program they said "Oh and here's Harry Potter that was the winner "

So it made to most money, but it was NOT the best film IMO.

So here's Crow's Film of the Year List, add your own

Best Special Effects     goes to    2012

Best Sci Fi                  goes to   District  9

Best Girly film              goes to Twilight and New Moon

Best Blockbuster         not sure

Also watched Zombieland, Class just Class! the opening credit's is funny as hell

Then only the ultimate, 2012! How can anyone slate this movie, is brilliant. Cusack was class as was the effect throughout. also liked the Black dude in it, his name escapes me, but ive liked him a few movie's now.

The Ugly Truth - guys = 5/10, girls = 7.5/10
Zombieland = 8.5/10
2012 = 9/10

THE ROAD

Well ... not sure where to start tbh ... not having read the book I had nothing to compare the film too, but had read from others that it was very true to the written version.

The film is bleak, but what else could it be given the story ... basically it is a post apocalyptic relationship story between a father and son, their journey to the south coast in search of warmer weather is the whole film.

It is pretty hard viewing at times and deffo one to avoid if you are on any sort of anti depressants !  they should check you for sharp objects at the ticket office to reduce any chances of people self harming !

The lad that plays the son plays a fantastic part, in fact the whole cast were really good and believable ... Robert Duvall's cameo as an old man that they meet along the way is just superbly acted.

There was one scene where some fella had nicked all of the Father and Sons possessions, and after catching up with him, the Father makes him strip ... very very powerful acting.

Not a film for thrill seekers, no real action, no twists and turns, and no hollywood ending ... but it was a powerful and compelling film and certainly a film that I wont forget in a hurry ... would thoroughly recommend this film, but make sure you are in the right frame of mind to watch it.

Post by: Tonji on January 16, 2010, 05:55:20 PM
Gotta agree with you Kev, it certainly haunts you for a few days that film.

I believe Cormac McCarthy became a father in his 70s & this book is a response to the feelings he has for his young son, knowing that he is likely to die whilst he's still young, before he can teach him about life. The film really reflects that very powerfully.

Book 9/10

Film 8/10 (I rarely see a film adaption that lives up to the book, but this gets close).

UP IN THE AIR.

    This film is up for a load of awards so i thought i'd check it out.George Clooney plays a guy who's job is to fly around the states "firing" people under difficult circumstances during the economic downturn.He lives out of his suitcase,a lonely life,distant from his family with few if no friends but he's contented with his lot,his main goal is reaching 10 mill airmiles and the beneifts that ensue.
    Well this is a movie and his life changes when he meets two women,the first a fellow weary traveller on the corporate grind and the second a young naive graduate who wants to bring his job into the computer age basically sacking people online and therefore making his own travelling life redundant.
   It's so predictable,i think i could have wrote it given the initial idea but it's saved by the casting of the three main characters who play it to a tee.I don't think it will live with you for a long time but it's enjoyable and far from a waste of time.The director said he only had Clooney in mind when looking to cast the lead and he hits the spot as the charming loner and it's hard to imagine anyone else playing it so well.

LET THE RIGHT ONE IN.

    Vampires are everywhere at the minute,the lastest en vogue thing,i wouldn't be surprised if one popped up on Emmerdale but heho i thought i'd give it a watch.This is a small film from Sweden,set in a bleak Stockholm suburb about a young lads pretty miserable bullied life,which all changes with the arrival of a new neighbour.So with not a lot of expectations(subtitles,slow,not very gory,kids as the main characters)i was properly surprised at how good this film is.It's beautifully shot and leaves you feeling uneasy without being terrified and i really enjoyed it.Oh nooooo!! it's getting a Hollywood remake-watch this one instead.

Nice review. I read the book, and the film is very authentic.

Sensational performance by the boy, who looks uncannily like his screen mum Theron. Viggo Mortensen is excellent too

Great cinematography set around Pittsburgh and New Orleans.

Much like There Will be blood and No country, one of the films of the last few years. The antithesis of a Scottish Dave film, and all the better for it!

Looking forward to The Road. Has Viggo Mortensen ever made a mistake picking roles?

Don't know when or if these two are coming out but they is both quality

Ok,

I saw Sherlock Holmes tonight with Robert Downey Jr, and Jude Law as Watson

Made by Guy Ritchie,  its moves quickly from fight scene to fight scene with great humour in a Victorian style setting .

Produced by Joel Silver, its slick funny and keeps you guessing how they did it.

A good film for a Saturday night out,

 but don't watch the trailer it gives too much away

8 out of 10

Changling.........

Started off absolutely crap. One of the most boring films I've ever seen.

Fortunately it got much better and I actually really enjoyed it.

I think i am getting old ... I have reached the stage where I want films that make me think while watching them, and make me think after it has ended... I want to be challenged by a film, not wrapped up in a cosy hollywood blanket and blasted with CGI.

Finally watched Transformers 2.

Whilst not raving quite as highly as Scottish Dave it wasn't as bad as some have said.

I knew what to expect and got exactly that. Loads of CGI, a few one liners and Megan Fox in skimpy clothes.

Perfect easy viewing and no wonder it made so much money.

I got given it for xmas, I enjoyed it a lot, but action films with loads of CGI are up my street anyway.

You are correct, I only speak for myself... It has taken me this long to realise that if I am paying good money to go to the cinema, I want to see something that will at least spark a bit of activity in the old brain department, and not just be something that I have forgotten about once I start the engine on the car for the drive home.

I think the "Cuddled and tucked in" type films will be far fewer on my 'must see at the cinema' list.

Based on a true story. I think the film tried to leave it as "The boy could still be alive" when, if i remember rightly there was pretty much no chance that he was

I really enjoyed it too but your right it was a slow starter. If i was on my own watching it probably would have been close to switching it off.

I almost switched it off but instead I fired up a few sngs and left it on in the background. I realised towards the end that it might be good so watched it again.

Woulda switched it off if I hadn't played poker though. It really was that slow!!

Ok, tonight I watched                     The Book Of Eli

Denzel Washington is a lone traveller in a post apocalypic world, carrying the last known copy of the Bible.

Its like Mad Max in the Thunderdome with Bikers and armoured cars.

But Gary Oldman plays the bad guy well, and controls a small town in the scrublands.

Now its like a Clint Eastwood movie, mysterious stranger arrives kicks butt and gets the girl.

Theres a few twists on the way to keep you watching,

 and a few funny moments when in the heat of battle an old lady makes a pot of tea

Played by Miss Jones from "Rising Damp ", lol

Watch out for Malcolm Mc Dowell near the end.

Cus it's naughty innit.

Nah not really. Just can't be bothered with setting myself up with the correct software so that I can do it.

Also don't really know where to look for the films etc. so would probably just download loads of viruses.

Also I've watched a few before and they don't sound as good as dvds. They look ok but the surround sound plays shite.

Oh and my pc is a few years old so probably isn't up to the task.

But mainly it's cus I can't be arsed.

It went straight to DVD , but as a BBC film its great.

Three guys in a pub discuss the possibilty of time travel and get visited by a girl time traveller , who has come from the future to close a time portal in the gents toilet.

They explore the portal and end up meeting themselves in a time paradox loop thingy

Then get chased across alternate universes by time police

Don't. Go out and buy a decent external HDD for about £50-£60 for 500GB and put them on there. Combine this with a rapidshare account and you're sorted.

I have an external drive. Tell me how this rapid share thing works please.

I buy a rapidshare premium account for a few euro dependent on whether I want a 3 month account or a monthly. Its 7 euro for month (30 days) and 17 euro for 90 days. Each day you get a 5gb download allowance which rolls over to a maximum of 25GB. The RS premium account means I get 800kbps download speed (top of my range, bloody talk talk and bloody shared houses) but I don't know the limits, maybe someone on here with Virgin who uses this could tell us what speed they get.

I then go to warez-bb dot org which is a forum with lots of rapidshare and other sharing sites links. You have to join the forum before you can get any of the links. They have pretty much everything bar porn, I use it to download movies, tv shows, music videos/dvds and albums, eBooks etc. They actually even have some CardRunners and DC videos on there, as well as cracked copies of HEM and PT. They also have lots of cracked applications. If you want some of the adult stuff, search for warezforum dot info (I think). This site caters for everything but has less links and is down quite often.

All you have to do is find the link you want and copy it into your browser, then click "download premium", log in to your premium acct and download.

Personally, I think the days of torrents and free downloads are over and rapidshare et al is the way to go. Thanks to Linux (I think) who first brought this up on blonde and got me started on it.

I've never had a problem yet. Yet being the operative word.

Obviously you could get people who upload shit and try to disguise it, but they're normally rooted out very very quickly as it's a closed community so people insta-tell if it's wrong, so to speak. Common sense applies, if you download a movie, make sure the file size matches what it says in the thread, use a virus scanner if unsure and make sure the file extension is correct, obv don't double click a movie that is .exe, as that's an application. Be a bit more wary with cracked apps, personally if I need an application, I'll use a thread with numerous good replies, rather than a thread with no replies.

Last night watched a film called  " Quantum Apocalypse "

Looks cheap and low budget, with a crazy story .

A small black hole is travelling towards Earth and it starts to suck all the water and the Earth's crust off ,lol

As gravity is weakened, people become lighter and can lift cars easily, very useful if you have a puncture.

Theres a scene in London of cars and loose object being pulled up into the air.

How do they stop it, they nuke it with some dark matter, simples

It's not just the set-ups of the scenes but he he gets people to react perfectly, as a film it may not have been as organized or poignant as borat but it's about a million times funnier



My fave bit, no idea quite why, is when Harrison Ford tells him to fuck off.

I watched  " Drag me to Hell " tonight

Its not supposed to be a spoof, but I laughed all the way through it, from  the old gypsy woman to the creepy old house with lightening and heavy rain etc,etc.

The predictable ending was painfully obvious,

maybe it was a spoof film  5 out of ten  ( 4 for the laughs )

I know, its pants that they have increased the Best Film award to 10 nom's!

I don't think there is even 10 movie this year that warrant a Nom FFS!



-------------------------------------------


On a side note, i had the chance to watch District 9 or Inglorious Basterds the other night, opted for Basterds, and wooooow what a film.

Tarantino proved again he is one of the best actor/director/writers around today, he is one of the most wildly original filmmakers of our time. Nothing short of a genius TBH

Pitt played his part well, loved his southern accent.

Kruger was ok, she wasn't really in it enough for me to judge her tho, but i do like her as an actress.

Laurent proved in her biggest role yet, that she really is a rising star, and she is stunning too at times.

The person who stole the show for me, and clearly everyone else judging by the awards so far, was Waltz, a completely unknown actor (to most people i think) stole the show from one of the biggest actors of our time, he really deserves the Oscar win IMHO for that role.

Also loved The bear Jew, his introductory scene is just amazing.

Another thing that i loved was the music/score throughout the movie, just perfect choices at the perfect time's.


9/10....i would say i would watch it again, but i already have!

I meant a razzie nomination. I think D9 is pretty bad but a lot of others on here like it a lot. I think after seeing what kinda films you do like you won't enjoy D9 very much. Unless the 2nd half is action packed (i turned it off half way through)

One of my Fav film in last decade in 'Into the Wild', which has zero shoot'em up's, zero machines, zero action. completely different from and action packed CGI film, but wow what a film

Lol sorry man I thought you were into the big blockbuster action films and nothing else.... not thats an insult etc. but some peeps think it is .

Watched Hurt Locker on Blu-ray last night (£12.75 from Tescos FTW )

Had been really looking forward to it due to hype/nominations etc....

Enjoyed it a lot, very tense at times when hero confronted with more and more complex IED's..liked the sniper shootout as a diversion from the films main criteria and LOL when Mr expert kicked the car boot open after having had a bash with a crow bar only to be confronted with a bomb that could blow a hole in the atmosphere.

Could of done with a touch more story to fill out between the set pieces and all in all didn't quite live up to my expectations after the hype but these things never do... but a thoroughly well made and enjoyable yarn and a def 8/10 see it score.

Next time I'm sharing a table with The Sicilian and James Miller, I'll ask Boer Wars to say 'Yo cheeky fokking prawn' and watch Sir Donksalot giggle like a girl.

On the subject of South African accents, as adopted sporadically by Morgan Freeman, I was disappointed with Invictus. The rugby scenes were poor, even though it's not my game.

Avoid Youth In Revolt, awful pile of nonsense imo.

Watched a couple of films I'd never heard about in the last few days both starring Tommy Lee Jones.

The first was 'In the Valley of Elah' by Paul Haggis inspired by an article by Mark Boal (the writer of Hurt Locker). Crime / Drama / Mystery, Tommy's son is in the army and go's AWOL Tommy goes to try and find him... good stuff 7/10

The second was 'The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada' another Crime / Drama / Mystery, it has some funny bits in too, Tommy is a cowboy and one of his cowboy friends is found dead, he is there to solve the mystery of his death and then fulfill a promise he made to his friend. This is also good 7.5/10.

Probably the greatest movie of all time...Blur - No Distance Left To Run, 5/5 bullets on the hammer scale... :D

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1565434/

'No Distance Left to Run' is a sentimental journey through Blur's beginnings, success, disillusionment, re-invention, arguments, break-ups and the emotional reunion and gigs of summer 2009.

"This documentary is fantastically shot, with intertwined footage from the band's 1990's Brit- pop haze. The interviews with the band, although not altogether open and revealing, do illustrate somewhat the band's dynamics and demons they each faced."

The Wolfman = oh dear

Apparently this film had problems from the start and they probably should have given up. Tired nonsense. Hugo Weaving plays his Matrix character's great great great grandfather, which gives it a bit of unintended comedy.

Sat it out to the painful and obvious end as had time to kill before watching the mighty Posh wallop Ipshitch. Would have gone and played the monopoly quiz machine in the lobby had it not gg'd me already.

Wolfman

I really really wanted to like this film , I liked the "feel" of the trailer and the gothic take and was really looking forward to a serious werewolf film however aside from the few nods to american werewolf in london - its not a very good movie, predictable and aside from a fairly decent attack in the early part of the film not in the least bit horrific or even scary.

I think maybe part of the problem is I was expecting a in depth film and what you have here is basically a "b" movie creature feature which is fine if thats what your expecting but theres enough talent on screen and great visuals to make it worthwhile however the plot and its pacing are severely lacking. I enjoyed Joe Johnstons Jumanji but with Jurrassic park 3 and Wolfman its clearly evident that he cannot direct a decent action flick.

3/10

A cheap Harry Potter copy cat film,

Young boy is told he has special powers and must go to a school to train in the ways of the Greek gods

He has a girl friend whos good with a bow and a comic side kick whos half Donkey.

Pierce Brosman plays the wise old headmaster ( Hes half horse )

Uma Thurman Plays Medusa ( Snake head lady )

Trouble is theres no musical background like Harry P, This has  " Highway to hell " and Lady GaGa's Poker face

Thats about it

Went to see Percy Jackson last night...

A good well paced fantasy adventure featuring all your favourite mythological Greek gods from Zeus down....

Percy is the son of Poseidon and is accused of stealing Zeus's all powerful lightening bolt ( which he hasn't obv, seeing as his not even aware that his a Demigod ) but is soon brought in to the fold of the children of the Gods at a big Summer Camp where they all hang out and train every day, just in case the Titans want a bit of a row..

Percy ( with the help of a daughter of Aprhodite, very nice she was too , and his best mate a half goat lad with a smart mouth which he uses to reasonable comical one liner effect )embarks on a quest to clear his name and save his dear old mum from the clutches of Hades, Lord of the Underworld. What ensues is a good romping yarn whilst giving the audience a Greek Gods 101. A pretty star heavy cast fills out the film from Pierce Brosnan and Uma Thurman down to Sean Bean and Steve Coogan..( Wasn't too sure about Coogan as Hades as he played it a bit camp and i just couldn't get Alan partridge out of my mind ) but thankfully his part wasn't overly big.

The special effects and the mythical monsters were up there quality wise as you would expect and all in all a good film that would suit pretty much the whole age spectrum ..

7.5/10

"Summer blockbuster Transformers 2 was the big 'winner' of the night, landing awards for worst picture, worst screenplay and worst director for Michael Bay."

 rotflmfao
LOL it wasn't that bad...
Just watched 'From Paris With Love' .....it's one of the worst action films I've seen in a long long time. It's as if an 8 year old wrote the script.... and the acting was shit too. 3/10
that is...

Inner space was a remake of Fantastic Voyage 1966. A mini sub goes round the blood stream to remove a blood clot

Raquel Welsh had the best bits in that one, and Donald Pleasance was the baddy ,as usual

The hero was Stephen Boyd , He was in Ben Hur as the Roman Baddy

It won 2 Academy Awards. lol

It was the Avatar of its day

I just watched Invictus and whilst I understand why you would say that I quite enjoyed it. Having said that I like most things south african and am a massive rugby fan so I doubt you could find a film that was more up my street before you even start.........

While I'm on the saffie theme, 'The Power Of One' is probably the best saffie/apartheid theme film I've seen, its been around a while and I don't know many others who have seen it.

Precious

Hard hitting film about living life in the shit end of black America, bloody good film. Not my natural territory as I'm more of an action film lover really, this is the sort of film that should be winning oscars IMO not hurt locker etc

Good luck spotting two cameo's by well know people, no chance you would know unless you look at the credits or somehow otherwise know.

THE ROAD

Well ... not sure where to start tbh ... not having read the book I had nothing to compare the film too, but had read from others that it was very true to the written version.

The film is bleak, but what else could it be given the story ... basically it is a post apocalyptic relationship story between a father and son, their journey to the south coast in search of warmer weather is the whole film.

It is pretty hard viewing at times and deffo one to avoid if you are on any sort of anti depressants !  they should check you for sharp objects at the ticket office to reduce any chances of people self harming !

The lad that plays the son plays a fantastic part, in fact the whole cast were really good and believable ... Robert Duvall's cameo as an old man that they meet along the way is just superbly acted.

There was one scene where some fella had nicked all of the Father and Sons possessions, and after catching up with him, the Father makes him strip ... very very powerful acting.

Not a film for thrill seekers, no real action, no twists and turns, and no hollywood ending ... but it was a powerful and compelling film and certainly a film that I wont forget in a hurry ... would thoroughly recommend this film, but make sure you are in the right frame of mind to watch it.




Great film Woodsey ... give it another go imo.

If you don't mind subtitles check out "Une Prophete" a french prison film about a young lad of Arabic descent who goes inside and gets mixed up with the Corsican mafia,one of the best films i've seen in ages.It was nominated for best foreign film at this years oscars.

I saw Johnny Depp in ALICE IN WONDERLAND last night

follows the original story at first, but then the Disney sugar sweet script takes over and the mad hatter has far more to say than in the book.

ok for Easter , its a kids film, but isn't  Helena Bonham Carter in all Tim Burton films

She was good in Planet of the Apes and Harry Potter, but shes always mad

Maybe because she's married to living with him, possibly? Good way of guaranteeing work for yourself, I have to say. Hat's off to her :).

Very very good film imo, certainly better than Kick Ass.

Guess I'm just anti-action films but Kick Ass didn't live up to the promise of the first half-hour. The comedy ran out completely. It's a bit like Zach And Miri Make A Porno, only nowhere near as funny early, before fizzling out.

Been a movie fest in the fens of late, time for some scorage

I Love You, Phillip Morris 7/10
The Blind Side 10/10
Clash Of The Tight'uns 5/10 - was expecting footage of Tighty and Pelham Boy having a best of three heads up match :(
Kick Ass 5/10

Just spent the last half hour or so going through the first 20 pages of this thread to pick some films to get,went for the following recommendations :

Brothers
Into the Wild
A Single Man
Felon -  5.5/10 It's watchable but I thought it was pretty slow with not that much happening.
Zach and Miri make a porno
Clubbed
Dead Mans Shoes
Gone Baby Gone
Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay
Jumper
Shooter 7/10.Thought this was good and Mark Wahlberg(sp?) is good in it.Worth watching.
The Crew
We Own the Night Realised I've already seen this lol,remember it being good at the time it can have a 7/10

Will rate them as I watch,might watch Felon tonight as that's already done.

Is by 'shizzle' you mean 'the biggest pile of shite ever' then I concur imo.
It is to Iron Man what the second and third Matrix flicks were to the original.
The best cast ever assembled for a comic book flick ever and just meh.
Ticks most of the boxes but pretty tez for me.

Watched Avatar on blu ray on friday and was worried about the hype surrounding it would lead to the usual disappointment.

I got nervous at the start as i got an odd feeling i was watching an entirely cgi generated film but it quickly drew me in and it melded beautifully into a spectacular, visual treat. Thought it was a good story well executed and once again Cameron has delivered the goods. Hollywood execs must wet themselves when he comes up with ideas.

Although a long film,like all good long films it flew by...

8.8/10

Just all a bit rushed somehow and the free-for-all comedy scenes don't work. Also, miscast imo. John Cusack is usually good but he is not a comedy actor. Seth Rogen in this role ftw.

They advertised for archers to be extras in that

My brother went along on that basis, but didn't bother staying. Apparently they were just accepting people first come first served - not difficult to work out that they can just CGI the backgrounds whenever there's anything you don't like in the crowd scenes

i thought this was good. watched it in a cinema in the US where there was 3 people, including me.

Cusack made his name doing comedy movies, in the mid 1980's, when he was popular, and he probably thought life was great.

completely different styles, both great but for me is cusack all the way.

There is a lot of actors can do Rogen comedy, but very very few can pull off Cusack comedy.

I'd go as far as to say on their day Paul Rudd and Jason Segel can trump Rogen, but that depends on how I feel that day.

Starring the inimitable Vincent Cassel.

True story of some french nutcase playboy lifestyle-crim bank robber called Jacques Mesrine. Great action, brilliant direction. In french, with subtitles.

Had to do my duty this week and take the young lady to see Eclipse. It was proceeded by some top draw fajita's at chiquito's so all was not lost...

Ive'see the other two and this is by far the weakest with the Cullen family all suddenly  surrendering stories of  how they became vampires and the female lead constantly mind fucking her two beaus because she's incapable of making a decision. Word of advice to the two boys. You can do better guys,honestly she ain't all that. The film trundles in a formaliac procession leading to the final battle in an open field a la Brave heart. not a single casualty for the good guys and all the baddies ripped limb from limb, yeah ok !

It lacks the moody rain drenched atmosphere of the original that i liked and i feel if it wasn't for the leads and the hype this one would sink without trace.

Girlies everywhere will lap it up of course drinking in scrawy pasty boy in favour of buffed hunk...go figure so its prob brownie points all round for the male populace if they can stomach the two hour slog otherwise send her with her BFF and go play poker...that way youre both be happy.

Apparently, according to my starry eyed companion it gets really good in the next film when they get married and have a kid...big Whoop !! FML

4/10

District 13 Ultimatum - Not the finest story line but the action is amazing, free running martial arts ftw

Get him to the Greek - I enjoyed this, but Russell Brand is in my top 5 celebs to sleep with, surprised Cos didnt like it, think he is a little racist.

Whatever Works - lovely little film, really enjoyable start to finish.

Law Abiding Citizen - awesome film, loved it start to finish

To watch this week, Wolverine, Inglorius, Last House on the Left and Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Went to see Inception last night. Absolutely incred.

Agreed.

God bless Chris Nolan.  In the era of remakes, sequels, and re-imaginings.  Chris Nolan is one of few who still try to be truly original and innovative.  Instead of jumping on the bandwagon with so many others trying to sell 3D as gamechanging to cinema.

Went to see Inception last night. Absolutely incred.


found it confusing, awkwardly plotted and unevenly paced.


Not sure it deserves all the rave reviews.

It was very pretty to look at but for me, it mostly failed to deliver. Matrix meets Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. (both of those succeeded where this one failed).

"""I have heard it said that fans will return to Inception for further viewings in a bid to extract more meanings from its layers. Good luck to them - I’m not sure they’ll find much. Nolan’s modus operandi here is to present a muddle at such a breakneck pace that it gets mistaken for profundity. """

Came away feeling disappointed.

Joobs and I got lucky and managed to score free tickets to see Toy Story 3 in 3D tonight.

I thought meh to be honest. It just seemed a bit too serious and forced to me, there really wasn't that much humour wise. Whereas the other two mainly focused on the comedy with a side helping of backstory, this one focused on the story as a whole with the occasional bit of comedy. They did manage to wrap it up and somehow leave options for a Toy Story 4 though.

One to watch if you saw and enjoyed the first two, but if you haven't, then don't bother as you'll just be confused and wondering what all the hype is about. Oh, and it's not really worth paying extra for 3D if you can see it cheap in 2D as the 3D side of things is hardly utilised.

6/10.

Inception is not quite as clever as it thinks it is, and the ending is just a Bladerunner rip-off.

I look forward to watching the director's cut of Toy Story 3 - the one where they put all the jokes back in. I only laughed twice and one of those was at the Return of the Jedi reference.

I really enjoyed Inception, not sure what everyones on about, its a pretty straight forward good film.

Wolverine is great, really enjoyable and the reason I would also like to date Hugh Jackman

Inglorius Bastards was disappointing, generally okay but just seemed a bit all over the place.

Zack and Miri make a porno, meh entertaining but nothing special.

Winner for the week was Shrek Forever After in 3D, first film Ive seen in 3D, not overly excited by that but a great film, proven by the fact there was a 21.45 showing on a Sunday. ;)

Really? I've just come back from seeing it and I really enjoyed it. And I definitely laughed more than twice. There was a lot of semi-contrived "Up" style tugging of the heartstrings, but I thought it was pretty good.

Yeh i laughed more than twice at Toy Story 3 but it was more emotional than funny. Worth watching but it's not as good as the others.
Finally watched kick ass and really enjoyed that.
Just watched Karate Kid. Nothing more or less than i expected. Funny in parts but we all know the story so it was never going to amaze anyone.
Going to see Inception later this week.

Classic movie.

Talked my mate out of 'The A-Team', reviews were horrendous', ended up seeing 'City Island', really funny, a proper character film 8.5/10

""Set in a small fishing community in the Bronx with a large population of Italian-Americans, City Island is a warmly hilarious movie about family members and their secret hearts. Writer-director Raymond De Felitta (Two Family House) tells his story modestly, but his gift for laughs laced with charm and bristling humanity is utterly irresistible. Andy Garcia, showing an untapped flair for comedy, gives one of his best and most beguiling performances as Vince Rizzo, a prison guard (he prefers "corrections officer") whose wife, Joyce (a sexy, frisky Julianna Margulies), DELETED SPOILER., hilariously deadpanned by Alan Arkin. I'll say no more. City Island is a relief for filmgoers dulled by Hollywood formula. Despite lapses into overstatement, it's nothing but good, sweet, breezy times.""

My better looking half wanted to see Karate Kid but made the Rookie mistake of not realising it wasn't released until next week...that left Inception or Predators.She didn't fancy inception so ugly muther fuckers it was.

Another assault on Chiquito's later we are ready to rock and roll...

TBH I went in with low expectations... these types of sequels tend to be low brow money spinners. Taken as a pure stand alone action flick it turned out not too bad..It opens straight into the action with random group of tough hombres...special forces,FBI most wanted etc waking up to find themselves free falling through the air but armed to the teeth..

They soon realise they have been transported to another world and are the game for  a group of bigger nastier predators that also like to hunt their smaller kin. So ensues the usual cat and mouse with messy kills.

All in all an enjoyable instantly forgettable romp....if you have a couple of hours to kill you could do a lot worse

6/10

Have to agree with this also, lots of the Ken & Barbie stuff was very funny, I thought, and I genuinely LOL'ed many times. I even had my Son asking what I was laughing at at one point, so yes it does the usual Pixar two level comedy line.

I honestly enjoyed seeing it which is something I don't always do when seeing a film because the kids want to, now, whether that means it was a good film or a sign that I've seen a load of tosh lately I'm still unsure of, but I'm leaning towards 'good film'.

Thought it was pretty decent however it does signpost certain events way in advance so theres no real shock ending. Well acted and made but no wow factor neither.

Watched Kick Ass last night again and it still holds up well , tho the tone does flip flop between realistic violence and comic violence but still very good film.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo - Quite impressed with this adaptation of the book.  They've simplified the plot significantly (e.g. taking out a few of Blomquist's love interests) but managed to retain the spirit of the book, which is about as much as you can hope for with any book adaptation.  Noomi Rapace is excellent as Lisbeth Salander, which was a relief.  One problem is that it's difficult to understand the backdrop to her guardianship without having read the book, so not sure how easy this will be for anyone watchiing the film 'cold'.
Also, watch the Swedish original version with subtitles, rather than the dubbed English one.

Really looking forward to seeing the other two in the trilogy (cinema releases in August and November this year).  Dreading the prospect of the Hollywood version of this which will be nowhere near as good as this one.


Having a bit of a DVD-fest this week.  Enjoyed 'Up In The Air' but have been left uttlerly perplexed and underwhelmed by 'The Men Who Stare At Goats' (which I was really expecting to enjoy).  For anyone who hasn't seen it yet, don't bother!

Knight And Day = awesome
Went in expecting nothing, but huge summer holiday crowd at the local Cineworld and this is just superb.
Both leads top class, esp Cameron Diaz, who's never been anything but quality in everything she's appeared in imo.
Normally can't be doing with action flicks but can't knock the chasey stuff in this one and it's also tongue in cheek without being OTT or knowing. A few LOL moments. Straight in my top ten for 2010.

Tomorrow could be a trip to see M.Night Shyamalan's new one. As much as I loved his early stuff, I so want this to be bad.

Wow, I thought it was shocking, I would of left if i wasn't with a group of friends. Tom Cruise just played Tom Cruise, (which isn't bad if you like him).  Cameron Diaz was non-existent in the film apart from a 5 mins stint near the end where she shows what perfect comedy timing she has. 

Knight and day = All very dull and predictable.

To be fair not a bad evenings viewing...managed not to get too schmaltzy....young Jaden Smith obv a talented young man and the fight sequences are pretty good especially when you consider its amongst a bunch of adolescents..

Jackie Chan obv steals the show... displays his versatility well and is perfect for the role. Still has the moves, but was a lttle disappointed he didnt get it on with bad guy teacher at the end...but hey ho...

Little confused that they were doing kung fu but the title has karate in it as they are two very different disciplines..suppose you have to give a little to be able to ride on the back of  the franchise name.

I really wanted to dislike The Last Air Bender but it was better than average, although it could have been fantastic with a half-decent script and without a couple of the weaker actors (Nicola Peltz as Katara had one expression the whole movie, extreme concern, and Aasif Mandvi, who was just plain bad).
Expectations were nil after that shambles The Happening and the first half-hour or so was a struggle. M.Night should stick to directing and let someone else do the writing. Some of it is so cliched it hurt and there were a couple of lines like 'he was a fantastic bender' to keep the kids chuckling away.
But the performance of the main character gets better as it goes on and the fight scenes were quality. It's a bit like Star Wars meets Monkey meets Starship Troopers meets Kill Bill.

Watched Pirahna 3d last night , not bad does what it says on the tin

this is the 4th 3d film ive seen now and only once can i say that 3d enhanced the film (avatar) , at present its still a distraction

anyhow its a total schlok fest with my only real complaint is that they have some really good actors who are badly underused (ving rhaimes, dina meyer etc) , it also seemed to take a bit of time to get going 

lots of gore and nudity mixed with a bit of humour.

*very mild spoiler*

(The scene where 2 girls go skinny dipping I swear you could have heard a pin drop in the cinema)

all in all a decent dumb popcorn movie

Thanks to my early APAT exit, I went to see The Girl Who Played With Fire on Sunday.  Was relieved to find it was the subtitled version rather than a lousy dubbed one.

Another good adaptation of the book.  Overall, I think it was a better film than the first one as it explains more of the background behind Salander's character, which is far more easily done in book form than on film.

It's pretty faithful to the book too, which means that the ending is just a precursor to the 3rd film, which follows straight on from this one chronologically.   Just got to hang on until November now to see it!

Still not sure how much these films will appeal to those who haven't already read the books.  Anyone watched either of them 'cold'?

Not one of Ferrell's best. A few laughs, a couple of understated chuckles

Buried, 7/10 for me.

Always remember Ryan Reynolds as being the poster dude for teenage girls ten or so years ago but he's absolute quality in this.

Maybe 15 minutes too long and snake in coffin bit not necessary. Often loses the feeling of claustrophobia after the first ten minutes, which should have been a good thing for me as a sufferer, but actually wasn't.

Predators - 3/5 - A let down after the early reviews I had seen, but its still a decent watch, just some massive plot holes and some poor cgi. Great soundtrack though echoing the far superior original which this is nearly a remake of in many ways.

Paranormal Activity 2.

At least as good as the first one. Enough of the same stuff, with just enough new stuff chucked in to keep it fresh.
Excellent cast.
Slow, slow, slow, then bang bang. Works imo.
Cinema was full. Mainly full of idiots. Had to move twice to get away from talkers. First chattertwat decided to tell the first three rows that 'there's the pool cleaner again' about 50 times in the first hour but still pleasing despite that.
What is it with cinema talkers? Used to shush them or turn around and ask whether they planned on talking through the entire film, but now just shift me ass.

7/10 for me.

Ticks all the right boxes and outstanding death stuff. But acting is woeful in parts though and, like the last couple of installments, is half an hour too long and spends too much time in flashback mode at the end. Nobody cares about that guff really, they only come for the blood'n'stuff.

A remake of War of the Worlds,

 It follows just 6 characters as the invasion begins and their futile attempts to hide from the creatures,

 like keeping the curtains closed, thats sure to fool'em

The film is very short, ends about half way through, lol, only 1 hr 20 min

Scenes of the city at night are great, CGI  OK, script is diabolical and cheesy.

3 Left before it ended

It may have been when they sellotaped some sheets to the windows to hide behind

Yes it was those Matrix drones again, best way to kill one ,is hit it with a large building block, apparently

Due Date (with Alan from the Hangover in) is very very funny and very feel good!! Quite cheap gags but well worth it.

Skyline only cost $10m to make - despite horrific reviews and (in US box office terms) no one going to see it, it'll turn a profit.

It was horrific, and they announced, I think, before it even came out, it was the 'start of a series of films'.

Watch as Doctor Turk and Milo from 24 run around an apartment for 90 minutes fending off aliens who look like they've been ripped off from the game Crysis.

Watched Inception tonight and loved it. Best film i've seen for a while

+1, just watched it at last as a good copy came out for d/l. Also +1 to everyone who said it was incredible and -1 to the few who didn't such as AndrewT, CreepyBenjew and Tighty

It was brilliant and i agree with the 9.0 on imdb

Best film i've seen this year (ahead of Shutter Island and Kick Ass)

until friday obv when i will go see the first part of the greatest film ever made (hopefully).

The IMDB top 250 seems very heavily weighted towards newer films. Not that Inception isn't incred, just seems like an odd weighting towards recents.

because film making tecniques are getting better? it's still a very young industry so the time against goodness graph is gonna be pretty steep

Because its mostly the younger generation voting, and new films instantly get the most votes, back in the 80s and 90s the fans were not around to put on 1000s of votes for the new releases, and for The Dark Knight to be in the top 10 let alone top 100 is terrible! easily the most overrated film of all time.

You think? I think when The Dark Knight (good film not great) and Inception (very good film) are in the top 10 it shows me how weak current "top" movies are.

all depends what you want from  a film which is where the subjective bit comes in. dark knight's not in my personal top 10 but I can see why it would be up there

When its not even as good as the previous Batman Begins somethings a bit off, and Christian Bales advanced growl turns it into a farce, all imo of course... :D

Is this new or is it the believe documentary that was on bbc about a year ago ?

Yep, it's the Believe thingy. Didn't know it was shown on BBC. Just know it's out on DVD on Monday and is up for an Emmy.

I might be getting it confused with something else,I'll get a hold of it.I'm not really that keen on his comedy although he's pretty good;the marathons he did was abs incred though.

Had to laugh at this "pain" review on Metacritic of the new Potter movie:

"This is easily the most boring movie of the year. Choosing to split this movie up into two parts, the first part a murderous crawl, was a horrible idea. Words cannot begin to describe how much I hated 'Deathly Hallows.' The movie is wrought with the labor of a convoluted setup without any sort of retribution. It doesn't even feel like a movie."

"This is one of those rare movies where the boredom illicited in my body transforms into crippling excruciating pain. Yes. Pain. This movie caused me physical painful discomfort just watching it. First off, the movie is two hours long. Read the title of the movie. Deathly Hallows. PART 1. It has taken this studio two hours to tell only THE FIRST HALF of a single book."

New Potter is excellent. Far better than the rest. The kids can actually act, the dialogue and time on the run is far less laboured than the book and the artistic license hasn't massacred the subtleties of the plot like in most of the other films.

Part II should be amazing.

+1 on what Baron said ^.

Enjoyed it. They can actually act really well now which i guess isn't surprising all the years they have spent with Alan Rickman, Helena Bonham Carter and many more. It was funny aswell which was an unexpected bonus.

I wouldn't describe it as a brilliant film because there was no big incred ending but its not like anyone signed up for an ending, its clearly part 1 of a 2 part film/book. While i would only describe this one as "quite good", i have no doubts at all that the last one in July will be breathtakingly brilliant.

Also to digress somewhat, shut up Sledge you clown, all you do on this thread/the TV show thread is get in your head that you don't like something without seeing it first and then do your utmost to find the worst review possible on the internet about it no matter how disreputable the source. Some of your contributions (Breaking Bad/The Walking Dead) are top notch but the majority useless and just hating shows/films for no reason at all.

I could just about tolerate you abusing Lost and Prison break but Harry Potter is stepping over the line mate.

Look m8, im not going to start watch a never ending series of kids films that are like 2.5 hours each, especially when I see reviews like the one I posted.

Prison Break deserved all the abuse it got after the first 2 great seasons, Lost was just a wind up...useless reviews? I dont see any others i've posted.
