It was a crap movie
Go during the Iceland Airwaves........... Blue Lagoon was nice, well the scenery was just out of this world, literally. Been twice, Sigur Ros' Heimma is a good memory inducing video
I went to Blue Lagoon too incredible place, the view at the top of the church was special aswell. Ara Batur is the Sigur Ros song that brings back memories for me, I'll check out Heimma though!
There are a few pictures on my instagram if you're interested.
Heima was done prior to the album with Ara Batur, it will remind you of the landscape/well your tour of course and like any SR concert, they close the video to Untitled #8....Im sure you will enjoy it
I'll check it out when I get home from work, looking forward to it! Wish I was back there now, all the volcanoes are going off apparently. Sounds like a Walter Mitty moment
When I went the first time in 2005, Julliette Lewis was seated behind me(with her band The Licks)in an overnight flight, she didn't shut up the whole flight, bumped into and said hi to Bjork inside Nasa, saw the Northern Lights, and cost me an arm and a leg and bought a 66 North softshell jacket(love it and still rocking it) and of course, Blue Lagoon. So Reykjavik/Island is a very memorable place for me (just up there with Merseyside/Wirral shipride lol)
The Living Daylights for the umpteenth time but this time in French.
Last movie I saw was FURY.
and how was it
Was it like Scanners?
Good movie..though I slept really well after watching it. The premise was a little convoluted I felt.
No, it was the Brad Pitt World War II movie.
I thought it was well done.
Have you seen Evil Dead? It's scarier than Sinister. I was petrified when I saw it.
The Americanization of Emily (1964) - British war movie, set in 1964. Brit girl and American sailor fall in love, mock each others culture and personality, pretend to hate one another and finally fall into each others arms and make love. A lot of navy stuff, and anti-war sentiments. Enjoyed it.
James Garner, Julie Andrews, James Coburn.
YES I saw it but it looks kind of fakish. so you are not as scared. but Sinister was just weird and realistic possibly and that is what makes it scary.
That is why Nightmare on Elmstreet when it first came out caused so many people to end up in emergency room. it caused people to NOt go to sleep and caused mental breakdown. this Sinister has similar effects on people
you should check out the original Texas chainsaw Massacre. That films about as real and raw as you can get in horror.
besides Fatal attraction of course. every young man should watch that film.
right saw that too. that was not scary to me. it was just sick gore movie. and I know if I encounter a psycho like that in Texas, I can just shoot him or have the sheriff shoot him and I don't have to fear him anymore. but with sinister, that thing can't be killed with a gun. and it is really scary, using your own kids to kill you, that is scary.
i dont think i have seen this movie. I was getting it confused with ....Insidious : the Return of Darth Maul.
I will check out Sinister when I get the chance.
Simple. Don't have kids.
The Piano (1993) - Interesting movie about a mute pianist who goes to NZ in the 1800's.
Holly Hunter, Sam Neil. Won 3 Oscars. Graphic scenes.
Hunter was beautiful back then
The Babadook - Very good horror movie.
I think I'm gonna finally watch the Hobbit movies, starting with the first one here in a few. (I did see it once before but wasn't paying enough attention)
Saving Grace (2000) - Brit comedy version of Breaking Bad with a happy ending.
Set in beautiful Cornwall.
I dunno 'bout Hunter, but the NZ ocean was staggeringly beautiful.
Harry Potter #3...my seven year old is reading the series and I won't let him see the movie until he reads the book. He just finished the 4th book so I guess the next movie I'll watch is Harry Potter 4.
Angel's Share......brings memories on me Scotland trip( and Irn Bru)
Evil Dead was amazing amount of violence and gore. Not for the faint of heart.
Has anyone seen the BBC 8-part serial, The Honourable Woman ?
I am seeing it at present. It's based on the Palestinian/Israeli struggle. Those of you who liked House of Cards should like it.
Bulworth its a classic .
If you like it, I am in. We have very similar tastes. Thanks for this - I never heard of it.
Just saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes. It was ok. I got pretty bummed because the opening scene had some of the worst CGI I had ever seen in the past few years, plus the character development was not good. But I made it through the movie and thought it was interesting.
I'd give it a 6/10.
Dead Poets Society (1989) - Robin Williams, Ethan Hawke
"Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary."
The Purge, the Purge 2 was much better. And no need to watch the 1st either.
It has also gotten extremely good reviews. Tell me what you think of it when you get around to it!
I thought Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was the better movie.
I was let down by the first one. Hopefully the second delivers!....
Death at a funeral (2007) - Brit comedy. Slightly funny.
In cinemas, have seen Interstellar (8/10), John Wick (7/10), Gone Girl (7/10) in the last two weeks.
Watched The King's Speech again last night on blu-ray, give it 8/10 too.
The Deep Blue Sea - (2011) - Rachel Weisz. Romantic drama about the war, married lady, understanding husband, affair with RAF officer. Goes to pieces.
is gonegirl pretty suspenseful and lots of action ?
Raw Deal....underrated classic for Arnold. pure action 80s gold. They dont make them like that anymore.
after that i popped in the Running Man with Arnold. another classic. They actually do make movies like this one again but instead cast teenage female actors for the lead and give them superhuman capabilities while being 105 lbs of nothing. Then all the males are a bunch of girly men that are incompetent with a weapon in there hands....I think they called it Hungry Games LOL.
going to work out, pump some iron, and get jacked now.......I'll be back!
Good film,but I think the Academy got it wrong in giving it best picture over The Social Network.
Inception. Loved it. It's an innovative film.
It really is. Love Leo, love the music, the plot, the intricacies and all.
I thought it's called "Maze Runners"..
Arnold was an icon... his action movies were top of the bill. Wasn't he a Russian agent in Raw Deal?
Last movie I saw was Interstellar. Incredible movie. A "should see in cinemas" movie :shock:
Raw Deal he is a small town sherriff that goes undercover in the mafia. Red Heat he is a russian agent who teams up with Belushi to go after a drug dealer. Thats a great film too.
Spike Lee's Inside Job
I liked it a lot better the second time around. The first time watching it was kind of a whirlwind.
Interstellar was fantastic despite a clunky second act. I'd give it an 8/10. Gone Girl was dark, atmospheric and suspenseful and I'd also give it an 8/10.
What is a 9?
