Sandlot(1993). One of the very best kids movies for me
You're killing me Smalls!
Netflix is fantastic, there's also a way to get the Netflix shown in different regions, which should suit your "dirty pirate" side
Whatever you want to watch is likely available in some Country. Last night i'd decided to watch Inception, it's not available in the UK so with a few clicks I found myself on Netflix Luxembourg and got my fix
Dallas Buyers Club
Had no expectations. Loved it. Brilliant.
To Catch a Thief (1955) - Cary Grant, Grace Kelly.
Saw half of it. Beautiful scenery, imagine living there in those large houses in the hills overlooking the sea.
While jewels were being stolen, and romance was in the air, I was thinking how nice it would be to go for long runs on those winding mountain roads.
r2473 would have loved the Quiche Lorraine (which contains bacon, it seems).
Even though real men don't eat Quiche.
The Grand Budapest Hotel. I found it great. Ralph Fiennes had a lot to do with it!
Ralph is a great actor.
Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002)
Same guy one hated in Schindler's List !
Noah and I so do not recommend it.
50 Shades of Grey :lol:
The Theory of Everything
The Imitation Game
Watching Citizenfour atm.
Grand Budapest was okay but nothing special.
Not sure I'm following Senti...
A few over the last few days.
The Maze Runner - I found it more enjoyable than I thought I would.
Annabelle - Finally got around to watching this, after I heard it was terrible. Was expecting much more.
Whiplash - This movie was amazing. One of the best I have seen in a long time. Wished it didn't end like it did though.
This Is Where I Leave You - An average comedy movie. Had some laughs...
all-round appraiser q (rewatching now haha)
just saw the Mockingjay. it is NOT good.
What are you talking about? They did a pretty good job for what they had to work with. All the action in the book comes at the end.
I went to see 'Cake' the other night. Thought it was a pretty good film, especially Jennifer Aniston's performance.
Ralph was Amon Goeth in Schindler's List, which I credit as his finest performance.
Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005)
Ralph played the German SS officer in Schindler's List. Given his cruelty in the film, I hated "him" (the character he played). That's what i meant. However, in TGBH he was quite endearing.
^^ Nice catch, carsomyr. Ralph followed it up with a stellar performance at the AO 2014 final
Off to see Enakkul Oruvan in a local theater now:
Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977)
The Blind Side
Hadnt seen it before...Decent film 7.5/10
Saw it again. One of the great movies - and it's got Tom Jones in it.
Dexter the final season inc finale. Fell rather flat & gutted IMO. Shame.
Breaking Bad final season. This show finished off better IMO. Top work by the creator.
Time for some fun movies:
King Of Comedy
This Is Spinal Tap
Spring Breakers. It was like a 90 minute music video,I liked it though...
Really? I thought it was sh1t. I was prepared to like it though.
Cloud Atlas. I'd been meaning to see it for ages. It's a really good film imo and very trippy. Along a similar parallel story narrative
I preferred Hugh Jackman/Rachel Weisz in The Fountain. It has a lot of similarities to Cloud Atlas. If you haven't seen The Fountain I highly recommend it.
could not understand this movie. seemed like many unconnected segments or people all in same movie ????
Did it have Eng subtitles, or was it dubbed or what. Must be a sizeable Tamil population in your area ?
Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
I liked episode IV
V was incredible.
III was very emotional and dark. Probably my favourite, so far.
One more to go
4 is one of the most overrated movies of all time imo.
Cloud Atlas or The Fountain?
It actually doesn't matter imo - The Fountain works whether you presume they are or aren't actually linked.
Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983)
Star Wars IV A New Hope (1977) a snooze fest? What strings you smokin'? One of the GOAT. Please don't tell me you prefer Avatar or Matrix? Opinions on 2001: A Space Odyssey?
Kill the messenger (2014)
The trailer might have been better than the actual movie. I'm undecided.
The Avengers (2012)
Great as always, but even better watching it with company.
Edge of Tomorrow
Don't like any of them. And yes, I stand by my opinion. It's boring and the acting is terrible'
We all know you have to suspend your disbelief to make that movie entertaining :lol: it's ok to admit it.
Rank them from favourite to least favourite, how would you?
I can't wait for YourAssic World to come out
Where is it going to come out of ?
Gone Girl.... so twisted!
Whiplash and it was great
So stoked for AoU in May in about two months!!!
How to Train Your Dragon 2; I was blown away with the first one and this second installment did it again. This sequel expands off the first one so majestically and it's filled with candid splendor and touches on other themes too. I like animated movies just as much as live-action, and this has to be one of my favorites.
The Maze Runner! It was really good and can't wait 4 the 2nd one! but if you have Blu-Ray watch it on that way better!
You should of seen it at the movies lol
Oh God....I hate watching horror and some dark drama or thriller movie at the movies. Non stop chatting and laughing to ease the tension people are feeling. :evil: FFS it is annoying...
