What Was The Last Movie You Watched?

Recommended Posts

I'll echo what others have said about Place Beyond the Pines. Very engaging, but I would have liked more crossover between each act, rather than it splitting very sharply through each one. Gosling was superb, Cooper was good, and it was a very well made film that people should make the effort to go see (only the DCA in Dundee are showing it, which meant no Nachos :()

I really enjoyed Place Beyond the Pines, I thought it was a really interesting film. I can see where the criticisms about it are coming from but I kind of enjoyed the way that the film had definite splits, that it focussed on the outcome of actions in different circumstances, across the generations.

Obviously this was helped by fantastic performances from the main cast, especially Ryan Gosling. I thought Bradley Cooper gave a good performance as well, especially in the early sections that he is in the film. Ray Liotta just played himself, Eva Mendes was pretty good and the younger actors in the final section were also good. The thing that I enjoyed about it was it was a different sort of the crime film, I kind of went in expecting a linear film about Bradley Cooper trying to catch Ryan Gosling but it was a lot more subtle than that.

Lockout. Mike from Neighbours and Shannon from Lost fight prisoners in a space jail and escape safely. 2/10

I watched Evil Dead on Friday night. It was fairly well done I thought. For those fans of the original, you'll be perhaps pleased to hear that the branch still has it's way with the girl.....

7/10.

Have to admit that film was a bit a guilty pleasure for me, the "Scottish" nutter who was the guy from Misfit played his part brillantly and GP did a good job a well. Def a popcorn no brainer flick but good none the less

I felt the same way. I thought Olga Kurylenko looked pretty good but Andrea Riseborough looked fantastic in it. Her character was also the most interesting by a long way. It's a pity that the film is determined to make her into essentially a stepford wife, before eventually deciding to ignore her altogether.

Yeah was a bit of shame, she played her part well as well. The scene with her inside herself was very good, tho thank god for the pool scene :-)

The Five Year Engagement - 7/10. Didnt expect to like this at all but was pleasantly surprised. Really enjoyable Rom-Com.

Got to agree with this. Cheesy American nonsense but somewhat enjoyable

Piranha 3DD - it was so shite I enjoyed it.

I haven't seen the first one which this was apparently just a poorer version of, but I still managed to enjoy it.

Finally watched Mama. I was pleasantly surprised, I think the fact that it's taken quite a bit of stick meant that it over-delivered but it's decent enough. I love Del Toro, and although he didn't direct it you can see his style throughout. Can't fault any of the acting, the female lead and the two young girls were excellent. There were one or two horror film clichés and as someone else said, the ghost was on screen a bit too often for it to be scary after a while. I'd recommend tho.

The Ghost Train- A 1941 horror/comedy. A group of travellers get stuck at an isolated station.

8/10

(I would recommend this)

The original play written by Arnold Ridley better known for playing Godfrey in Dad's Army. My dad says it's great, I'll need to watch it.

I have to say I expected something better from Besson, more intelligence, more humour.

Watched the evil dead remake. Really disappointed tbh, it was just a generic horror with some really dreadful acting. It wasn't scary nor was it gory in a way that had you feeling uncomfortable. The ending was just piss poor too despite it being some sort of big climax.

Really poor film and not one I'd recommend at all. Another good name and opportunity wasted.

I've been half-tempted to go and see this as The Evil Dead is one of my favourite film series (even the third works well if approached as a comedy rather than a horror) but the reviews have been pretty poor. Think I'll give it a miss.

Can someone give me a quick heads up? I'm planning to watch silver linings playbook with my girlfriend in a bit, but I know its got some references to mental illness in it and my girlfriend has struggled a little with depression in the past and I'm mindful of how it will affect her. Is it dealt with well? The trailer makes it seem like quite a 'feel good' movie, is that fair?

It's excellent but the best feel-good movie I've seen in years is a movie called "Liberal Arts". Excellent film.
