Flight - The film opens with a big black man in bed and a naked girl with a large chest wandering around. I thought it was a porno. 1/10

The Impossible - Many seem to rate this film, not me , after 40mins i wanted to push Naomi Watts back under the water, i did watch another watery disaster film in Beasts of TSW before this so was somewhat spoiled in this particular genre. 3/10

Die Hard III 5/10 - with Samuel Jackson and Bruce Willis. Since Christmas, I have worked through the Die Hards. I am a bit bored of them now

The first one is decent enough at Christmas time (not every year though!) but for Die Hard II and III, I don't want to see either of them again.

Catfish (2010) - 9/10 - I was absolutely riveted throughout, it's both terrifying and stunning if this really is a true story.

Maybe I'm watching too many Die Hard's in one go...

Although my personal preference is Die Hard 1. It has a young Alan Rickman and Bruce Willis in it for a start

Ghost Ship - didn't finish because the DVD stopped working at around 40 minutes into the film. It skipped to the start. Bah. But it was fun while it lasted.

Funny that this thread is called 'movies'.

Whatever happened to 'film', eh?

I've just watched 'The Angels' Share', directed by Ken Loach.

Absolutely brilliant - best film I've seen in a long time.

The Hunter 2012 Iran
A man takes an act of vengeance after a terrible tragedy. I recorded this off BBC4 a few weeks back, it was good, different but a bit disjointed in pace. 6/10

Eight Below... Watched it this afternoon with my son. Will give it 7 out of 10. Dragged on a bit in parts but it was a good story.

*sharp intake of breathe*

like i said with THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS ..... watched it last night and was excited to see it ..... but terrible i came away from it FRUSTRATED!

a LOT of things were great about it ..... the acting, scenarios, effects and the main storyline was excellent!

but a LOT of things were wrong with it too ..... notably the style of editing they used! now they use it in the previous movies to great effect, but some of the cuts were quite frankly AMATEURISH! especially the cut for the cops being rescued from the tunnel, it simply cuts from the explostion to create the hole in the barracade, to them halfway out already which made it very disconcerting to me! ..... to the fact that the reveal of "the bat" was RUINED by a mid-cut as it came out of the shadows (surprising because the same scenario with the tumbler in BB) ..... but the worst one was the reveal of john blake's "other" name ..... barely felt like a big thing, and could have easily been missed by viewers! add selina kyles entrance on the batpod at the end, she just APPEARS there (and i literally THREW my arms out in frustration at that) and who was that other woman with selina? NO BACK STORY for either her, selina or john blake!

there's also a big problem with key scenes not being DRAMATIC ENOUGH! the plane rescue at the beginning just didn't have enough in it, and at the end i asked myself "is that it?" and the whole "bat break" scene at the end of their fight just fell flat ..... like batman did on the cold hard floor LOL also the THREE month "kayfabe" wait, from when bane takes over gotham and the end in winter? was that a "end of the world" take perhaps?

oh and there's the whole IMAX thing ..... the screen formatting was used to GREAT effect in TRON LEGACY, but used sparingly ..... but the timings in TDKR was almost random and felt like too much of the movie was done like this!

another problem was the multiple story threads ..... perhaps to the writers maybe ..... maybe ..... and that leads to this one ..... like BREAKING DAWN did and TRANSFORMERS DARK OF THE MOON should have been, maybe the third and most epic of the trilogy could have been made into TWO parts? to give the above mentioned characters some sort of backstory, and to spread out the story (maybe have bruce getting dumped in the uzbekh prison the end of part one? as we got a tremendous one for bane .....

not bad as in terrible, but trying to fit in such an epic story into even a tad shy of three hours, might have been too much for the creators ..... and the thing to finally break the batmans back!

BUT NOT ONCE AND FOR ALL .....

but the dark knight rises is the WORST of the modern batman movies for me, and that's very dissapointing

No Monkey Business [1935]. Director: Marcel Varnel

5/10

Hectic British comedy that has thus far failed to muster 5 votes on IMDb. French born director Varnel and scripter Val Guest would soon find fame working with Will Hay.

The Prestige. I've seen it countless times, but I still have difficulty understanding the ending! 10/10.
Which part in particular do you not understand?

Taken 2.

Meh, 7/10 at it's best. I really liked the first film and moderately enjoyed this one, but I wouldn't watch it again. Just seemed a bit flat.
