What Was The Last Movie You Watched?

Over the past few days:

Pride And Glory

A pretty formulaic cop thriller in the end. Edward Norton and Jon Voight are both excellent, as usual, and their performances give it an extra mark. I'd give it a 6/10.

Really enjoyed this. Very fascinating and great performances all round, especially from Josh Brolin, James Cromwell and Richard Dreyfuss.

Run, Lola, Run

German film about three alternate possibilities when a girl has to find 100,000 marks to save her boyfriend from gangsters.

Excellent and a bit weird. 8/10.

I remember watching this at High School - really enjoyed it!

Last couple of nights have been spent watching the Silence of The Lambs and Hannibal on ITV2. Both were excellent and would give both at least 9/10.

Had to explain the ending of the second one to my flatmate who couldnt understand how

Lector lost his hand at the end as opposed to him cutting of Starlings hand!

:lol:

The Man Who Knew Too Little (1997)

Good fun, with a good screen partnership between Bill Murray and Willow's on-screen beau Joanne Whalley.

Sadly Richard Wilson was in it, but everything has to have a negative.

Actually quite ingenious to get a film that has a plot that no-one in it seems to know about!

8/10

Hunger - Steve McQueen, 2008, 5 star review in Guardian

Saw it at GFT, its about Bobby Sands and the hunger strikers during the Thatcher years, really thought provoking. Really well made film, acting is fantastic, in particular Michael Fassbender who plays Bobby Sands. Its still on at the GFT and a couple of cinemas in Edinburgh - I'd highly recommend it.

Burn after reading

7.5/10

Pretty funny storyline. Pitt, McDormand, Clooney, Malkovic and Jenkings are all pretty fantastic in this and I quite enjoyed, clever at stages and a few laugh out loud moments but def's not the Coen's best film

Lucky Number Slevin

6/10

Quite a strange movie, a clever plot but two very strange villans. Tried to do 2 things at once, surreal villans not wanting to leave their towers (which happened to be opposite) and a tough gangster villan which uses plastic bags to kill people :huh: But it failed to do either in my opinion

Not nearly as good as I thought it would be.

Predator (1987)

Classic Arnie actioner where he leads a crack Special Forces into the jungle on a rescue mission to find he and his team are being stalked and hunted by an alien.

I haven't seen this for years and forgot how bloody good it is.

8/10

Away from her 8/10

It's about an Alzheimers-inflicted wife who moves into a care home but then forgets her adoring husband. Very sad and poignant. Probably not every-ones cup of tea but in my line of work I really enjoyed it. I did have a wee :bairn

Where The Buffalo Roam (1980)

In theory it's based on the early work of Hunter S Thompson, but actually it's more of a slapstick comedy with a bit of social satire and a suggestion of the life of Oscar Acosta, a lawyer friend of Thompson who ended up dead someplace. It's all right, in parts funny, and Bill Murray is great in the role of the Doc alongside Peter Boyle, but it's a bit of a cartoon and the script sometimes stinks. 5/10

Zack And Miri Make A Porno

I can't help but like Seth Rogen. Whether it's because he's a great comedy actor or just a fat bloke who looks bemused at how famous he is, he's great. And this is a very funny movie - helped in no small way by Kevin Smith's dialogue.

I'd give it an 8/10.
