What Was The Last Movie You Watched?

Recommended Posts

This Means War - 2/10.

Didnt have high expectations for this but what a load of shite it was. Terrible acting all round even by Tom Hardy which I was dissappointed in. I know its just a RomCom but you can still bring out a decent performance, sadly this wasn't the case.

21 Jump Street - 6/10.

It was funny but I had been told it was hilarious before hand by a few folk and feel it might have been over-hyped and thus I didnt enjoy it as much as I should have.

Bad Boys 2 - 8/10.

Its Bad Boys 2...nuff said.

Elephant - A story based on Columbine. This film annoyed me greatly because it spent about 40 minutes just following people's EVERY STEP (just victims, not even the shooters). I think it was by the guy that did Last Days (based on Cobain) and that was shot similar to this. 2/10.

Yeah, it's a Michael Bay shit fest that isn't worth discussing...

I think it was more to show how the victims were linked and to show a more human element of them rather than just a couple of kids going mental and shooting a bunch of strangers who had no significance. It is very slow up until the shooters' story but it adds so much depth to the final scenes, you develop some kind of attachment to the characters

Agreed. One of the cool things about that is that none of the characters are really that likeable, but it shows they're all human. The camerawork is second to none- the 5 minute steadicam shot is up there with the Copacabana shot in Goodfellas, IMO. (And that big long shot at the end of Hugo- unbelievable!)

Elephant's one of my favourite films of the last 10 years because it does exactly what it's meant to do- be arty, be controversial, and show off! I can definitely see why people see it as just masturbation material for arty smarty film geeks, though...

Really liked Elephant when I saw it. The sort of film that leaves a huge impression.

Watched 127 Hours on DVD today. Heard a lot about it although wasn't half as gory as I'd thought. A hard job for one person to carry a film on their own like that but James Franco did it admirably. A fairly amazing story that sticks with you afterwards. A lot of Danny Boyle's trademark dreamy shots and amazingly visual colours just added to it. Utah looked incredible.

8/10

The bit of the film in Cuba is wrong on so many levels !

Ultraviolet:

Futuristic guff with Milla Jovovich. I managed SEVEN minutes before turning it off. Utter gash.

0/10.

Potiche (2011). French farce starring Catherine Deneuve and Gerard Depardeui. Light hearted fun and a pleasant enough way to pass an hour and a half. Set in the 70s so great colours and clothes. Spoilt slightly by association with that stupid Orange turn off your phone ad.

6/10

Ive yet to see a Film in 3D that was even remotely worth the extra money and ive seen about 5 so far. I seen The Avengers in 2D and enjoyed it. Its like an extra 4 quid for a darker picture and a couple of crap effects.

Despicable Me was OUTSTANDING in 3D. If a film is well made in 3D it's worth seeing. I've seen a few in 3D now. Up, Beowulf (3D imax) and The Voyage of The Dawn Treader have all been well worth the extra cash. I saw the Lion King, which as been 3D-ised and wasn't impressed. I'd say avoid anything which hasn't been made specifically with 3D in mind.

Avengers Assemble (2012)

Really brilliant film, so much going on - like a Bay CGI-wankfest, but actually good!

Can't give it full points as there were holes in it so big that even the main cause of them (Mark Ruffalo's character) could fit through without touching the sides!

9/10

Unknown

My ex-burd and I bought this last year and never got around to watching it but managed to get a look at it on Monday. Entertaining enough but some things went unexplained.

For example, it was pretty apparent, going by the scene in the art gallery, that Neeson and January Jones were in love...yet Frank Langella explains that they are simply a professional couple and then the film totally ignores the fact that Jones was decimated by the bomb.

I still find it strange that Neeson is considered an action hero of sorts now but he is pretty good at it.

As I said, an entertaining watch but flawed and it'll always be compared to the superior Taken.

Kill List ( 2011 )

For the most part, this is quite a gripping thriller. Then it... well, if you've seen it you know. Those initial scenes of the final scene are incredibly unnerving and then it just moves into madness. I absolutely loved this anyways even if I was completely fucked by the end of it.

9/10

Moneyball

I hate baseball but I absolutely loved this film! I would recommend to anyone who has an Internet in sports, or even if you don't. Very touching.

Stage Fright (1950)

Definitely the worst Hitchcock film that I've seen. Pretty boring film about a woman who seems to have set up her lover after he goes to tidy up the murder of her husband.

Funny death scene gives it a slightly better mark than it really deserves. That and having the legendary Scottish actor Alastair Sim in it as Commodore Gill.

6/10

The Avengers 7/10.

Quite disappointed actually. Can't quite put my finger on why I didn't love it but yeah I wasn't blown away. Wasn't as funny as folk were making out and it started very very slowly.

Only got really good when they got on the ground and started fighting the forces coming from the portal
