Sort of like Hunger Games.
Watched it for about 10 minutes and decided to ride my bike! These are the kind of movies I'd rather read.
Beavis And Butthead Do America(1996). Good,lighthearted fun
chef (2014) with jon favreau
I watched over an hour of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes but finally gave up. Really bad. Pathetic, in fact.
Why can;t they EVER think of something more original than humans wiping out other species ?
Humans getting wiped out by others species? Nah,probably been done as well. I agree,I'm not fussed on fastasy,sci-fi etc. I prefer dramas based on real people,the humans condition
Tim Burton tried to re-do an 'Apes' film but made a pigsear of it. I don't know why they bother. Its like the later Star Wars films; these are films that have a place in history and are of their time. There's nothing to improve upon.
The latest film I saw was Olympus Fallen. Good action film, but basically a re-hash of Die Hard.
complete disasters compared to their predecessors...
I actually still refuse to acknowledge Rocky V. To me, the franchise ended with Rocky IV.
Rocky Balboa is fine.
Yeah that one was ok. It has one of the best lines in any film...something like "it's not about how many times you get knocked down, it's about how many times you get back up"......something like that.
Which is of course totally incorrect. In most boxing matches if you get knocked down 3 times in a round it's a TKO, so getting back up the third time is pointless.
He obviously wasnt referring to a single bout.. Its been some time since ive seen it, but dont think he was even referring to boxing, but life in general You know Rocky can be pretty deep :lol:
Checkout Frazier v Foreman, seriously. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4-WjL8jIyQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mk82j1jQw_8
Just saw this and agree
Watched Pi for the first time after much goading by hipster college kids.
I just saw Sin City, the new one. Not as good as the old one.
No movies of late. Have just begun watching a TV series called Extant.
(It has the Looper kid in it, and Halle Berry)
Nothing worth recommending.
Watched Divergent - great movie- good food for thought! maximum enjoyed it
Watched a bunch of the Rambo movies today. Before that I watched the first Terminator when it came on. Terminator 2 was my favorite of the two growing up, but I probably appreciate the first one more now.
James Bond 007 Skyfall.
After all the praise I heard, I am disappoint. Seemed like your regular, run of the mill action movie. Big explosions, vehicles chases etc. Was pretty bored.
Before that watched Jiro Dreams of Sushi. Really enjoyed it, could've been a little shorter though.
I thought Skyfall was pretty good, but no where near as good as Casino Royale.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles /flex
how was TMNT?
they look a little scary.
might scare the kiddies...
Was it good. Seems to have won some awards.
Loved the story line and the atmosphere
It was a decent movie for the kids...I "went along" with two six-year old girls and a nine-year old boy...they all loved it!
The Mirror has Two Faces - Barbra Striesand, Jeff Bridges and Lauren Bacall, Brosnan.
Laughed a lot, and found it touching too. A romantic comedy where the characters examine true love.
Looking at the old Bacall, could not help remembering the young one.
p.s. i got this movie in memory of Bacall who passed away recently.
You're Next on Netflix.
It was alright. Typical scary/thriller type movie.
The Trip to Italy
If you liked "The Trip" -- and I did -- you'll like this as well. Brydon and Coogan banter their way around Italy, and the result is often hilarious and sometimes thought-provoking.
Been watching a bit of the TV series The Strain. Unfortunately, the so-called sci-fi genre just cannot get out of repeating the same cliches.
Sort of Spoiler:
It's basically the same Zombie, Alien/Species thing done all over again, with perhaps some more medical details.
All that Heaven Allows - an old romance movie. Rock Hudson, Jane Wyman.
Hobson's Choice (1954) - Charles Laughton, Brenda Be Banzie, dir by David Lean.
Funny movie, enjoyed. Good performances.
Tremors (1990) - A funny, monster movie set in Nevada. Kevin Bacon.
Beautiful background and scenery.
12 Angry Men: Excellent film,wonderful performances
I Heart Huckabees: Didn't like the film that much,but Naomi Watts was pretty hot in it
Coherence (2013) - low budget scifi movie. Interesting.
If you liked movies like The Man from Earth, and Primer, you should like this.
Was entertaining enough. Although I am pretty easily entertained. "COLOURS AND SHAPES!".......
I re-watched Avatar the Last Airbender this week to get back in touch with mine childhood + I never really finished it and missed episodes
Holy **** is it one of the most touching and amazing things ever made. It's amazing.
Yeah, I have heard it's awesome. I have seen the odd episodes years back. I'm watching One Piece right now. I am hooked.
Watched Divergent last week and it was actually pretty good. Great story line and had a good amount of action. Just got done reading the book and found out it is the first one in a trilogy series! I'll probably end up reading the other two as well
I hope you're talking about the TV series as Avatar the Last Airbender movie was beyond horrible......honestly one of the worst movies I've ever seen. The TV series was phenomenal though, also the new one The Legend of Korra is actually really great too and all of the episodes get shown online which is even better.
The Uninvited (1944) - Interesting movie, beautiful cinematography, supernatural mystery movie. Ray Milland.
I'm loving this as its so FX channel polished in how its presented.
Yes, i know. Even i am quite addicted to it, there's another episode tonight, which will be loaded on the torrents by tomorrow.
On the other hand, Extant is really disappointing me. They just don't seem to have a story, and are dragging it out.
Episodes imply the show
Haven't tried Korra yet.
If you want to try any ones other ones out re anime I'd recommend
- FMA - Brotherhood
- Code Geass
- Shin Sekai Yori
- Shingeki no Kyojin
and there's a new one called Zankyou no Terror which is purty awesome
Like Liam Neeson in the "Taken" films, Pierce Brosnan shows here that guys in their 60s can still kick anybody's butt; baby-boomers please take note. The film itself recycles every cliche of other post-Cold War CIA thrillers but with a more chaotic and sometimes confusing narrative. And what's a car chase these days without a few motorcycles thrown in?
Spy Game (2001) - Robert Redford, Pitt.
Taut spy thriller
