What Was The Last Movie You Watched?

Recommended Posts

Christoper Robin 

I cried. Lots.

 

9/10

 

 

 

I seen it today, outstanding film. Got to admit there was a tear or two watching it.

 

Truly superb film.

 

10/10

The Truman Show - DVD
Still looks good and my favourite Peter Weir film. Jim Carrey is really good and this is arguably his best performance.
8.5/10
Have you watched The Majestic? He's very good in that as well. A serious role. I think he gets a bit of stick for only being a comedy actor but any 'serious' film I've seen him in he's been convincing. Eternal Sunshine being another.

I think Jim Carrey was looked upon as another Tom Hanks as moving from comedy to"serious" but some of the films he was in were at best average....Number 23 sticks in my mind as fairly honking.

The Meg - as others have mentioned, probably the best film about Jason Statham fighting a shark that you'll see this year.

Yeah, it gets a pass, but did feel like a bit of a missed opportunity. In terms of quality, somewhere between Deep Blue Sea and those SyFy Channel shitfests starring people like Hulk Hogan's daughter. TBH, it'd probably be completely uninteresting without The Stath. Also had a weird quality I've noticed with Chinese-American co-productions where it feels like the script has been assembled by committee.

Jim Carrey seemed to f**k his straight acting career with the amusing numerology film that he was terrible in.

I've just read that his next gig is Dr Robotnik in a Sonic the Hedgehog live action film  :lol:

Watched Hannibal the other day.

It was ok but not on the same level as Silence of the Lambs. Brain eating scene at the end particularly gruesome.

I read years ago that Thomas Harris deliberately wrote Hannibal to be as difficult to translate to the screen as possible, including the OTT gore and original ending, which would probably have had fans of the Silence movie up in arms. Better ending than the one they changed it to, though.

Theatre of Blood is really good stuff, if a bit on the hokey side, but most of the British horror stuff around that time was the same so ye canny really grumble.

Agreed. I quite like 60s/70s British horror films. Psychomania and The Witchfinder General are particular favourites. I may have to dig them out and watch them again soon...

watched St Vincent tonight.

 

Bill Murray plays an alcoholic, gambling, hooker loving, Vietnam veteran who starts to look after his neighbours kid. typical heart warming story of grumpy loner who is touched (now now!) by the young boy after teaching the young boy the ways of the world.

 

generally quite a poor film but Sir Bill Murray is in it so of course it cant be completely terrible.

 

5/10

 

eta away to watch Zombieland. seen it a few times but Bill Murray is excellent in his cameo

I really enjoyed seeing that at the cinema but for some reason have had no interest in ever watching it again. Clearly didn't make a lasting impression. Think I gave it 9 on this thread so I'll need to give it another look.

Haven't seen that but reading about it on IMDB it sounds right up my street. I'll put in on my list of 'must see'.

St Vincent
thought you meant that one. it certainly had its dark comic moments but i just thought it was too dimilar to do many that have gone before it. grumpy old man has his views on life changed by young child/women.

Mission impossible: Fallout - 8.5/10.

Love the MI series and thought this looked great but it was way better than I could have thought. Really enjoyed it.

The only MI film I wasn't fussed on was 3...  I'd say the rest have been pretty consistently good.

What’s happened to my BlackKklansman review? 

It was definitely there. Nothing wrong in there that I seen either

Ready player one

Decent enough with some clever effects and ideas. Not groundbreaking but a cut above shite like avengers. It felt semi believable.

The Incredibles 2 - 8/10

A joyous return for the Parrs. Jack-Jack was a highlight as was Edna (of course). I think carrying on from where the 1st film finished served them well.

Hmm weird. Was it the “r” word? Can whoever pulled it confirm? Not much use pulling posts if you don’t let the writer know what the issue was for future reference! 

Anyway: bullet point was it was a big 9/10 for me.
