What Was The Last Movie You Watched?

Recommended Posts

Kill List - 2011

Well, as the credits rolled, I just sat there stunned at the final scene, trying to make sense of it all.

I'd need to see it again but it is slowly paced, really well acted, really bloody violent and, well, shocking.

Reminded me of The Wicker Man, Jay was marked out (almost literally by the mark on the back of the mirror) as a possible "recruit" and had to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Not sure what to score it out of 10, would need to see again.

Unthinkable ( 2010 )

One I hadn't heard of. Terrorist says he has put three nukes in three different cities. Samuel L Jackson has been asked to find out where they are at all costs. The movie appears to be saying something about using torture and what it means. The basic plot is very good though and it's carried out incredibly well. There's some right thrilling moments in there and there's times when you don't know what's coming next. It makes for a very good thriller. Samuel L Jackson's character is the real crown jewel of the piece, although the guy playing the terrorist deserves extra credit, as does Carrie-Ann Moss who makes a brilliant fist of the idealist who doesn't like where the interrogation is going. The final scenes where the title of the movie comes from really is mental.

8/10

Just watched this. What an absolute belter of a film biggrin.gif . Samuel L Jackson is brilliant, Carrie-Ann Moss is really good but performance of the film goes to Michael Sheen. Just a superb actor in everything I have seen him in.

DomDom, the bold part I have highlighted had me really wondering wtf was going to happen

Overall 9.5/10

Monsters ( 2010 )

What a movie THIS is. The first thing to note is just how well it's made. It REALLY cranks up the tension, but does so in such a way that leaves you thinking "how was that so tense?" as these scenes tended to just be not much. It's the entire feeling that's created through the movie and this is what makes it's climax such an absolutely awesome thing to watch.

9/10

Me and my mate were talking last night about how good he is at picking his role. Going through his back catalogue i like almost every film he's done.

I watched this last night and would probably agree with your rating. I bought right into it,

and actually forget they were on the plane when they originally "went under". I thought the scenario that had the van hitting the water was "real life".

Quite liked the ending too.

Also, I love Tom Hardy. He's becoming one of my favourite actors.

Watched it loved it,

Damage (2009)

Action film about an ex-con (played by "Stone Cold" Steve Austin) who is fighting in illegal fights to try and raise $250k to pay for a heart transplant for the daughter of the man he killed in self-defence.

It's surprisingly good, Austin is basically playing his WWE character which works quite well in this film. The characters all develop well throughout the film, and you actually care what happens to all of them.

Plus The Smoking Man from the X-Files shows up along the way as a gangster who leant Austin's manager money.

7/10 - one of the better films starring ex-wrestlers!

Went to see Apollo 18 last night, it was pretty reasonable. Nice to have a horror movie that didn't depend solely on unexpected loud noises to create a reaction to it, I always feel that is akin to paying someone £8 to follow you around with two cymbals for a couple of hours. There was however a couple of walkouts, and the cinema was about half full on its first Orange Wednesday. I think the Glasgow film public might have been looking for something more like John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars.

Very slow, very creepy. Probably best described as (The Thing + The Blair Witch Project = Apollo 18).

I've seen this. Sandra Bullock is great. You have to admire someone with the balls to go pick up her razzie award the day she was winning her oscar.

RED STATE

Nice little plot to it, few real world things throwing in (Westboro Baptist Church). Didn't really like the ending as its seemed to go off in a tangent from three kids getting kidnapped and how evil the church was to how corrupt the government was.

6/10 worth a watch, but probably wouldn't watch it again

Frozen ( 2010 )

This is one of them movies where I look at the plot and just feel that I KNOW it's going to be shit. But you've got to give it a shot, because you can always be proven wrong. Right? Well, that is certainly the case in this instance. Basically three people go up a chairlift and wind up stranded there. First three things got right. Three absolutely likeable characters. It's an absolute nightmare situation and as the movie goes on it takes complete advantage of that. It unfortunately tails off as the daylight hits and they feel calmer and then the climax is a complete washout but for about an hour and 10 minutes of this, you have a right cracker.

Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe ( 2010 )

Cracking first installment to what I HOPE is a good series of movies. I certainly have my hopes up after this. Quite disappointed that...

... it appears the Ice Queen is done for, because I thought Tilda Swinton was amazing, but I suppose given how good she is this shouldn't be a surprise.

8/10

Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian ( 2008 )

At least I got the date right this time. Anyways, every bit as good as the first movie, which was nice to see. They replaced the pure evil of the Ice Queen with a much more sinister, and equally as imposing villain this time around. An incredibly pleasant ending to proceedings follows a terrific climax. It's probably better than the first movie by a very small margin and gives me hope that any future movie is going to be a worthy follow up.

The Lincoln Lawyer (2011)I watched it on the flight back from Vegas last week. A decent enough yarn it has to be said.

Fright night 3D 77%

I was pleasantly suprised by this. First 20 minutes were nothing special but it picked up. Tennant wasn't half bad as was the 3D, which I'm never big on, but it worked pretty well for this. Decent watch

I thought that was a great wee film. Fluid, nice looking and McConaughey was good as the lead in it.

The films get better as they go on, just like the books. Prince Caspian is my favourite of the books, and the best of the films thus far.

Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Well, I'll give them credit. They know how to make consistant movies, even when they change the director. There's a bit more going on here. They don't waste any time speeding up the pace of the movie, but they don't seem to compromise on the characters with Eustace creating a lovely change of pace, annoying but at the same time a good comic presence who you can kinda warm to BEFORE his major change. The fight/battle scenes were all better done here too. Wasn't as big a fan of the plot because the threat didn't seem as big as before so I could never really buy into it, but everything else is made up for it.

Jonah Hex ( 2010 )

Does anyone wanna see a movie with John Malkovich being good and Josh Brolin being even MORE cool than usual, yet is still shite? Here it is. The plot is absolutely horrible. Played for laughs originally and that makes it work. However, things then take a turn for the serious and that is when things go downhill quickly.

2/10
