Watched first man a few days ago. It's about an hour too long. Good movie, not a great. Gosling playing a plank of wood.

Went to see the new Peter Jackson documentary about WW1 "They Shall Not Grow Old " last night, then there was a link to the London Premier of it and a Q&A with Peter Jackson from there.

What a brilliant piece of cinema! Not to be missed by anyone interested in history.

The BBC will be showing it on November 11th, make sure you watch it or record it!!!

Cheers, was keeping an eye for that and saw that it had only a limited cinema release. I was wondering who had picked up the rights.

I'll have to look into it.
Good to see Jackson move away from CGI crap for a bit.

Has any one seen Bushwick with David Bautista? It’s on Netflix now... very much a b-movie, but an intersting one. Basically, a war suddenly erupts in Brooklyn and we follow a college chick and big David trying to get to a safe zone. I like how the camera just follows the chaos without cuts and utter confusion reigns.

Looking at the IMDB scores, I wonder if part of its low rating is because of triggered rednecks? :lol:

I quite like the dystopic genre anyway so I gave it a go. I quite liked it - 6/10.

Just watched Hunter Killer. Gerard Butler commanding a US sub trying to stop world war 3. You can probably imagine most of the film from that description.

It's alright as a film. A lot of the CG is laughable though. So many pings out of many, many, many pings.

Just watched this, and the poster’s plaudits are maybe a bit over the top, but it was a nice film if you’re into history and the missus is desperate for a drama. I found the screening of their film at the end quite moving, actually, because it’s probably the first time I’ve considered how war weary people reacted to ‘propaganda’ films. I found myself reacting to all the scenes as the audience did!

Yeah, I saw it last year at a film festival in London. It’s obviously low budget and the makers were learning their craft but an interesting albeit far fetched premise - NY invaded by right wing white supremicist types from the south.

Love Actually, which came out the year before would have done a lot more for his profile, but he was already pretty well known. He also did Underworld and the State of Play mini-series before Shaun. Not long before, though, so it was all around 2002-2004 when it seems he became part of the wider consciousness. Before that he was a bit of an 'Oh it's that guy!', a face you recognise from a dozen things.



Sunk an 1 hour 20 minutes into Exists last night. Unmitigated shite even by cheap found footage horror standards. Was intrigued as it mentioned a creature in the woods and I'm a sucker for a creature feature. Turned out to be a Bigfoot, yawn.

Cheered myself up with Never Stop Stopping which was a well observed satire on the pop documentary. Pleasantly surprised by it, Andy Samburg projects can be quite hit and miss.

Just seen the new Halloween film. It's not bad, much better than the recent Halloween fare that has come out. Probably the best Michael Myers Halloween since Halloween 2 back in the 70s.

Damning with faint praise...

I watched H20 recently as it has a rep as being best of the rest. Dire. A modicum of amusement to be had at seeing Josh Hartnett and Michelle Williams so fresh-faced.

Is the new one worth the £14 my local Odeon will be charging or better off waiting for it to hit Netflix/Amazon?

It all depends on how much you like slasher flicks. But £14 is quite a lot really.

Just a sense I've picked up over the years of reading horror sites/comments on horror pages, though I'm fairly sure it cropped up in Bloody Disgusting post sometime this month.

Yeah, will probably not go for it.

Bram Stoker's Dracula on the telly.

Grant (a TV series gone begging there) and amazing costumes all round.


And boobs.

It's a ridiculous masterpiece of overblown excess, really is.


Just had Sadie Frost being ravaged by wolf thing Dracula.


And a fantastic soundtrack :thumbup:

So I saw Beautiful Boy last night.
Pretty decent, though I found it a bit overlong and it was filmed a bit flat.
It lost it's focus a bit on the central relationship between the father and son at times I felt and I also found Carrell to be a bit wooden at times in this role.

Doesn't help I'm not Carrell's biggest fan.

Timothee Chalamet was very good though. Great physicality to his role.

I seen Halloween at the weekend. What a let down. It's been quotaed and has laughable dialogue and scenes that go nowhere (cheerleader dance)

I saw A Star is Born over the weekend. Would not be my choice normally but I really enjoyed it. I'm not a huge Bradley Cooper fan but enjoyed his part, Lady Gaga was surprisingly really good. I had never seen the originals so the end came as a bit of a shock. Recommended.

'Three Identical strangers' (2018).

Pretty good documentary.

Quote:
In 1980 New York, three young men who were all adopted meet each other and find out they're triplets who were separated at birth. Then they discover why.

Saw this last night. Thought it was just OK. There were also some bizarre things like Stockton supposedly being in the middle of the mountains when it's in the California Central Valley.

Just come back from watching the 4K restoration of The Fog. Really enjoyed it even if some people came in 25 minutes late. Modern horror films could learn a few things from the older horror films, mostly running time. The Fog was 86 minutes it got in, did what it needed to do and got out.

I know you're all taking the piss, but it's a film about Alex Honnold a free climber.
Really well shot, well crafted documentary.
Very easy to watch.

There's another one made by the same filmmaker called Meru, which is about Ice Climbing. (the guy also partook in that climb.)
Visually stunning movies with great pace to them.

Have you actually seen the rest?

Halloween - classic

Halloween II - more of the night he came back, do they actually have patients and staff at that hospital beyond the few we see?

Halloween III - Don't even want to think about the lack of logic

Halloween IV - V - IV was okay and then they frack it up in V.

Halloween VI - uhmmm so the Producer's cut is meant to explain all those disjointed scenes right?

H2O - Thank God

Halloween Resurrection - dear god in heaven baby Jesus slaughters at least three kittens every time some one watches this one.

Rob Zombie's remake and sequel, please shot the franchise in the head, surely it can't get any worse than this rubbish

Halloween 2018, guess I was wrong about it getting worse.

I'd seen 1-3 (though the latter just once when I was 14), most of V, Resurrection and the first Rob Zombie one. H20 comes out better against the second half of that list, but it was still not a good film by any stretch of the imagination.
