What Was The Last Movie You Watched?

Recommended Posts

Bit of a film binge weekend

The Limehouse Golem

Decent enough. Thought they could have done more with the sets - it was all a bit stagey/CGI - but otherwise a decent romp. Eddie Marsan very good and Douglas Booth channeling Russell Brand. 7/10

Get Out

I think it would be more challenging for an American audience. It's really a dark satire on race relations and how black people have to conform to white ideals if they are to fit in. 7/10

Birdman

Very clever how it looks like one continual shot. A bit of a luvvie love-in but overall enjoyed it. 8/10

The hitmans bodyguard.

The right mixture of action and comedy for me. I found I actually quite enjoy the works of Ryan Reynolds when he's not selling me broadband.

Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith (Sky)

I've seen it several times before, but you always notice something. This time, it was how Ewan McGregor's attempt to do an Alec Guinness impression means that he shows absolutely no emotion throughout the film. Hayden Christiansen is obviously terrible, but McGregor should have known better.

I still like the story though.

ROTS is terrible and the story is pish.

"Aye Anakin, to save your wife, who absolutely no one definitely knows is your wife, you have to murder a load of children. Your wife definitely won't ever find out and even if she did she'd absolutely be fine with you massacring loads of innocent children."

"Oh cool Palpatine, I'll get right on it."

 

 

"Anakin, is it true you killed a load of kids?"

"I did it for you!"

"Flowers probably would have been better than mutilated children's corpses."

"Obi Wan, you turned her against me!"

"Nah, pretty sure it was the lightsabering kids' faces off mate."

 

 

"I'm sorry, but despite our incredibly advanced medicine, techniques and machinery, we don't know why Padme is dying. It's like she's dying of..erm..."

"A broken heart?"

"YES! That's it!"

"Are you fucking kidding me?!!!"

 

 

"Hey Obi Wan, instead of us taking the fight to the Emperor and stopping him imposing a horrendous dictatorship on the galaxy, I have more training for you. And by 'training' I mean fucking off and watching a child like a creepy uncle. I will just f**k off to a swamp and hide like a shitebag doing pretty much nothing."

"That sounds like the best course of action Yoda. Let's get to it."

 

 

"Aw, I'm all burst after a ludicrous move that allowed Obi Wan to cut my legs off, leaving me lying beside a river of lava on fire. But where's my wife Palpatine?".

"Oh..erm..YOU killed her!"

"What? NOOOOOOOOOO!!! Ok, yes."

Williams..........7/10.

Not just one for motorsport fans this documentary. Tells the story of the Williams F1 team from the beginning. Also features heavily on the family of team owner Frank Williams and his daughter, now effective team boss Claire Williams and his late wife through recordings made while still alive for her autobiography. Very open and honest interviews with them and other close family and team members from through the years. I always knew Frank Williams was a bit of an oddball but not to such an extent as revealled here.

After watching the Star Wars films as a kid, I was idly curious about the idea of a respected good guy being seduced by evil, eventually becoming one of the most feared, ruthless fascists in the galaxy. How could this have happened? Surely an epic tale full of nuance and subtlety lay behind such a complex figure.

Turns out he was always a pouty, self-obsessed little bitch, and Obi-Wan was lying about him being a good guy all along  <_<

Tightrope with Clint Eastwood. It's an alright crime thriller. He seems to get his end away quite a lot in it

Saw Detroit the other night. You'll not walk out the cinema in a happy mood, but it's really well made and pulls no punches.

Patti Cake$ - 6/10 (Cinema)

The first half an hour is almost unwatchable. Ends up being pretty decent in the end though, but the casting is dreadful. Some horrendous acting at points during this.

Knock Knock

Eventually got around to watching this. Thankfully I never went to the cinema like I had planned when it first came out. I just found it extremely boring. I never found it tense or even thrilling but I put it totally down to Reeves. My god he was terrible. His acting was just dreadful. I actually thought it was intentional and it was supposed to be comical but having checked IMDb it wasn't supposed to be humorous at all! There is a scene where he is begging for his life and apologising and I was close to tears of laughter such was his poor delivery.

The girls were fit and for that reason it's worth a watch but I won't be viewing again.

3/10

The scene were he is buried up to his neck is absolute comedy genius from keanu. Call 911 call 911... funniest scene I've seen in a movie in years.
