Seen Any Good Films Recently

Posted

I saw "Us" recently and found it disturbing but very entertaining, don't understand why "It" has been remade, or "Pet Sematary", it's not like Stephen King needs the money.

Sorry Mike, totally wrong wording of post, i wouldn't post a spoiler. My great uncle (bottom left 2, with knife & mug) was killed 22 days after when the film is set. I have a postcard to his mum saying he had recently HAERD FROM his brother,, and could picture it being him in the same situation/task.

Over Christmas, one morning I found myself watching Escape to Athena with the very delectable Stephanie Powers, and no, she wasn`t sat with me unfortunately she was on screen. Half way through this happened. Wind it on to 50:10 and you`ll see.

The end credits of the film credit all the songs/music from the soundtrack but BitN is unaccredited.

Went to see 1917 last night, superb entertainment, tense, enthralling, gritty, and riveting, well recommended.

We went, for the 1st time in years to see Dr Sleep last month at our local Vue cinema, Saturday night, I booked in the week in case it was booked up on the night.

When we arrived I was expecting the usual milling throng of parents and kids pick & mixing in the foyer, the new Terminator film had also just premiered that week and a couple more kids movies so a busy weekend.

Errr no. There was just me and the wife, no one else in the place, I got us a beer each and we went to find our seats, there was only one more couple in screen 1 and as far as we could tell, in the whole building, as we left they were behind us locking up. 

Good movie though but what a shame no one`s going anymore.😥

I have a cineworld membership so go see all whilst on my travels. I've had an interest in WW1 since aged 11 started by a school project. Over the past 40+ years I've been digging at the Somme and visited the Menein Gate several times in various capacitys. I went to see 1917.......spotted 6 joins... as an editor of hundreds of films I was interested in the continual filming aspect...! I had watched Journeys End on Netflix the day before.......if you liked 1917...watch Journeys end... afterwards! X The ultimate WW1 film for me is All Quiet on the Western Front...the original b&w version not the John Boy Walton remake! X

I watched Richard Jewell last night.

 

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3513548/ 

 

Based on a true story about the bombing at the Atlanta 1996 Olympics event. Directed by Client Eastwood. Definitely worth seeing

Sometimes when you are watching something you find the character a complete 'expletive' and you can't relate to them, but then you realise the acting was really  great to have generated that feeling. I liked the ending, thinking "couldn't have happened to a nicer guy" 7/10 from me.

Not reviews as you can go to IMDB for them, just quick comments on some recently watched.....

Harriet - lovely film well worth watching several times  

John Henry - this film is so bad it's brilliant! You'll find yourself saying WTF is this all about? Don't pay to see this, but spend your money on Black Mamba to help you understand it. Everything about it, acting, plot, filming etc is dire. Don't worry, i doubt you'll waste a hour & halve of you life on it as you'll not get past 30 minutes - though the last 10 mins will leave you dumbfounded!

Sorry we missed you - Grim and very, very good. Certainly delivers, and you'll never squiggle a rude word instead of a signature on the courier's little machine again!

Last black man in San Francisco - couldn't make head nor tale of this to be honest, so if anyone could enlighten me.

If I Leave Here Tomorrow A Film About Lynyrd Skynyrd. - as a music fan of all genres, i really enjoyed this & recommend.

I am Duran - if you are not a boxing fan, but a sports fan you still should like this. Rag to riches and back again story. I certainly didn't find myself saying 'no mas'

JoJo Rabbit - utter twaddle in my opinion.

Queen & Slim - Oh you'll like this

Not a new film , think it came out in 2017. It’s in black and white and has subtitles but if you can .... stick with it . 

“The Captain” tells the story of a German deserter during the end of WW11 and looks at the other side of the conflict . Compelling watching if you give it a chance.

Went to see the excellent QUEEN and SLIM last weekend, starring Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith (actually from Peterborough) as a black couple who have to go on the run after a racist Police Officer is shot and killed, and their various encounters and evasion of capture while trying to make it from Ohio to Cuba. Highly entertaining movie, and a pretty cool soundtrack, also.
