What Was The Last Movie You Watched?

Recommended Posts

I went to see Insidious tonight. I really enjoyed it.

The first half of this film is great, it excellently builds suspense, you're not too sure what is going on. It continues to build well until it is quite scary. Then during the second half of the film it kinda dies really, it becomes like a Shyamalan film with some unbelievable nonsense. Despite this is picks up again towards the end, and throughout the dips remains quite scary. I realise this film probably isn't to everyone's taste, but I enjoyed it.

7.9/10 - Would have been higher but for the dip in the middle.

Scariest film I have ever seen. I hate demons and supernatural horrors.

Don't watch Ghost then, poltergeists and Whoopi Goldberg. Terrifying. :ph34r:

I usually don't get scared at horrors (blood guts gore) but supernatural stuff really creeps me out, love the film :D although some of it was unbelievable. :(

Triloquist (Video 2008)

AKA Dummy in this country...

I love comedy horrors, and this is just hilarious! It's about a retard and his sister going about with their dead heroin addict mother's dummy killing people. The box says "Chucky meets Natural Born Killers" and it couldn't be more bang on the money!

Funny as hell, the special effects are pretty bad but it's so shit it's brilliant!

Usual 7/10 good spoof/comedy horror mark!

Insidious

I went along with a mate even though I was pretty sure I wouldn't like it. My suspicions were correct although I probably didn't dislike it quite as much as I thought I would.

As stated previously, the end section is what really lets it down as it turns into little more than the equivalent of a cheap ghost train ride. The final surprise is absolutely no surprise for anyone that has seen a film like this before.

The first half of the film utilises all the tricks to try and get the audience jumping and one or two actually work well. There's one scare in particular that wasn't just a jump but was a very creep image and that, for me, was the only really commendable part of the film.

3/10

The Wind that Shakes the Barley, part of film 4's films for life series they have on at the moment - Really enjoyed this film about brothers who take up arms in Irelands fight for freedom in the 1920's, basically an account of the rise of the IRA. Didnt know much about this subject before watching this film and was quite shocked to see how the British treated the Irish, some of the scenes in the film are not for the faint hearted.

Overall - 8/10, the ending would be the only complaint i have about this film

I thought it was as good a first half of any horror I have watched in a while. Just a shame it all went to shit. Felt more like a TV movie near the end.

It was as if someone else took over script writing duties half way thru. As soon as the ghostbusters turned up the whole thing went to shit. It really was a shame because it was genuinely creepy for the first 45 minutes or so.

Battle LA,

Good action scenes, lots of confused shouting and shooting with tracer fire zipping in from an unseen enemy.

Although you can pick the ending from a short list of sci-fi invasion films that have gone before, it doesn't spoil it much at all.

7.5/10

Edit because my iPod does my head in.

I thought the two ghostbuster guys were quite funny, but ruined the film. As I, and everyone else has said, it was good until the halfway point and then they ruined it.

I watched Four Lions on DVD last night.

A film about "English" Home Grown terrorists, quite apt since Bin Laden got killed.

Quite funny, not constant laughs, but all in all, a good way to spend 90mins

7/10

Thor - 3D was really uncomfortable so we got off to a bad start,

Story wasn't much - typically fluffy love plot chucked into it for good measure.

Exciting enough in the later stages but pretty predictable tosh.

2/5

Ijust finished watching “The Social Network”.I would recommend everyone to watch it. That’s a realistic movie.

Chopper (2000)

Good wee 'biography', Eric Bana is really good as Chopper Read.

Worth a watch, if a little bit ridiculous at times.

8/10

The Haunted World of El Superbeasto (2009)

Animated comedy from the strange and demented mind of Rob Zombie, starring all the people that made The Devil's Rejects great (Ken Foree, Bill Mosely, Danny Trejo, Sheri Moon and Sid Haig)!

The songs are really funny, and there's loads of nods to horror classics throughout the film. The nod, and the song, to Carrie was quality, and you can't beat a bit of Benny Hill!

8/10

Predator (1987)

I had expected better. It wasn't awful, but I didn't think it was great either. I got really bored during it, and it was basically just the same as Alien, but with different characters and a different monster. Never watched the second one which is on just now because I really couldn't be bothered. I'll have to at some point, though.

Second one is much better IMO.

Combined with a total ringpiece in Gary Busey

Has Gary Busey ever done anything where you just didn't want to punch the p***k right in the duodenum?

Such a shit actor!
