Seen Any Good Films Recently


Recommended Posts

Posted

 

Grown up film I got '30 days of Night'  which is quite old, 2007 but worth seeing if you like Horror films..the vampires were very quick!!

I like that film- nice to see someone else does and some friends didn't know why I rated it. I saw Get On Up at the flicks and really enjoyed it but I agree with Arthur Conley that JB was the king of them all

"Marvellous" is one of the best films I have seen ever....an absolutely inspiring must-see

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 s

'Wolf of Wall Street' was the last good film I watched. Very enjoyable

Went to see the concluding part of The Hobbit.  Considering Orlando Bloom also played the Legolas character in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, he's aged well.  Enjoyed all three films and Peter Jackson has done a great job of bringing Tolkien's work to the big screen.

 

I wonder if they did some makeup job or CGI on Orlando Bloom's face? The Hobbit is about 60 years before The Lord of the Rings starts, but having said that Legolas is probably around a thousand years old, so 60 years doesn't make much difference to the way he looks. He probably look exactly the same.

Watched a documentary on Sky that was commissioned to coincide with the launch of the final film.  The presenter was shown around Peter Jackson's Weta Workshop in New Zealand.  They had casts of all the actors' faces, and there wasn't a lot of difference between the two Orlando Bloom casts made fifteen years apart.

Saw the last hobbit film last week, kids loved it, and I see its top of the box office in the states, personally o thought it was very predictable, and a bit poor really, thank god the studios can't now get any more mileage out of the story....

That said Star Wars was a gift for Dysney, there may not be any more Tolkien books but given the returns I would not be surprised if they wrote new stories, lego and Dysney would love the franchise I'm sure...

There is another Tolkien book Mal, The Silmarillion, published posthumously, but I don't think it would translate to the silver screen.

I'd love to see The Silmarillion filmed, although it would be a bit like filming the bible. There are some epic battles though which would be awesome on film.

Watched "Kes" last night, hadn't seen it for decades and thought it brilliant, gritty and very moving.  Give me low budget British classics any day.

Truly a classic, love it.

Wasn't happy bout Tottenham hotspur getting beat by Man Utd on the back of a re-taken penalty though, very poor decision that.

I'd have been happy with neither of them winning, but you can't have it all.

skyfall - brilliant bond film

Agree, Bond movies have never been better than they are right now.

Had my eye on a first edition Ian Fleming hard back with sleeve, Jesus, have you seen the prices?

Although they'll only appriciate, still, could get me a couple of very rare records for the same amount of dosh.

Such a great film ! I never thought I'd see a movie starring Lou Macari - still a legend for us Swindon supporters !

Skyfall was good for a large part, ridiculous for the rest.  The scenes at Skyfall just seemed to lack imagination and a case of lets get it over with.  Casino Royale was poor but was done when the best screen writers were on strike.  Daniel Craig an excellent bond though, probably the best.

i loved it.only a couple of gadgets too

 

I thought the plot of Skyfall and the action was good, but the villain was crap. That silly accent and hair piece was a joke. Sorry mate. Casino Royale has been the best of the Daniel Craig Bonds for me so far. Looking forward to Spectre, now that will be good I reckon.

Well he's certainly the best for me.

Dissagree bout Casino Royale, the scene when he gets drugged at the card table is superb.

To each their own Chalks.

I agree mate each to their own.  I preferred Quantom of Solace, his best IMO. The rest lack consistency, seems like they get fed up and just want it finished.   Still good viewing though.

I've never watched a Star wars film Tony, no appeal whatsoever.

In another thread I mentioned I had worked for an Austrian called Adolf, which got a bit of a response, he was a Count, and I worked as his falconer for just over a year, flying Golden eagles and Steppe Eagles, Goshawks and Peregrines, great fun, taking small deer, fox, geese, ducks etc.  A big power kick each time you launch a bird.

yes fred talks the same now as he did in the film , think that's what got him the part , his broad Yorkshire Barnsley speak ,

is quite a unique accent , even for Yorkshire and differs from our south Yorkshire neighbours . the nearest thing to fred I have heard was the late great Bub when he was on form with the mic.

watched the first two hobbit films over Christmas on DVD , I am an avid JR fan but thought the films didn't do the story justice and the endings which are meant to lead us to the next episode are a bit off ,

Have heard good reports about the 3rd film and will get this when it comes out on DVD or may go to our local Cineplex and watch this .

Mines a less than good report, we saw Hobbit part 3 last night. Beautifully shot, terrific special effects but, in all honesty a bit boring. It seemed to consist of battle scenes interspersed with a lot of gazing wistfully whilst Clannad played in the background.

At least there was no real spoilers in your review.  I shall wait until it comes out on DVD and buy the extended version as the LOTR boxed set filled in a few gaps, hopefully it'll be the same with the Hobbit.  I remember reading the book when I was about 10 and deciphering the runic writing on certain pages, I have no idea how as I wouldn't know where to start now.  It's been a long time coming, but I'm looking forward to it.

Don't know if anybody has mentioned it before, but I watched 'The Guvnors', and for what it was ex hooligans going back to their old manor to sort it out, I thought it was pretty good. Not for those who hate violence, but to me sort of showed the difference of what today's kids are like and who they'd attack and our generations.

And another similar recent one is We still kill the old way.....ive got it but not had time to watch it yet.
