Rented out "Paycheck" on DVD....

6/10


Enjoyable, & an interesting idea, but its a fairly "run of the mill" movie. Nothing amazing.

Compared to other films based on PKD stories....Paycheck is not anywhere near as good as Bladerunner, nor even Minority Report or Total Recall.

It was also a bit of a let-down for a John Woo film.

I'd give it 8/10, was interesting, action filled, much better than Total Recall.

Troy - 6 out of 10. Bit dull. Seems to be aimed at females, ie lots of men getting in and out of armour. Dull dialogue. The number of times we are reminded how their names will live on for 1000 years for fighting in this battle, the movie won't even be remembered next year. Too much of Achilles (Pitt) brooding.

Hellboy

( :erm: , seen courtesy of a friend's dodgy DVD....I'd happily give my money to the studio/distributor to see it, but as it isn't out in the cinema in the UK, nor even out on DVD in the US, there was no other way..crap excuse I admit....but I will buy the DVD when it comes out in Region1)


Anyway.....****ing brilliant!!!!!!!!! 9/10 :D :D


Great film. Good cast (especially Ron Pearlman...he is perfect as Hellboy), good story, great action, great FX, great fun.

Guillermo del Toro has again shown how talented a director & screenwriter he is.

I don't understand why it's out in the UK so bloody late though! Not in the cinema here 'till September or thereabouts.

I've pre-ordered the Region 1 DVD from DVDBoxofice.com (due out July) - this is definitely, IMO, a "must-have" (well, for people who enjoy this kind of film ;) )...I'll probably also end up getting the R1 3 disc extended edition (due out a few months after the normal version)

Matchstick Men, very good film - wont tell you nuffin about it though as pretty much anything will give the game away.

We watched Bend it like Beckham again on DVD at the w/e. It's the story of two girls, Parminder Nagra and Keira Knightley, and their local girls' football team. It's very funny and Juliet Stevenson has some fantastic lines. It's a wonderful portrayal of multi-cultural London. But really, the film is about prejudices - from all quarters - and some of them are most painful. 'Dad's' speach about him coming over from India and then the gorras wouldn't let him play cricket, gets me in tears every time.

Definately recommended - I would almost say compulsory viewing!

Had a bit of a film-fest this weekend (and still found time to watch the FA Cup Final and the Grand Prix!)

Got three films from the video shop:

SWAT - enjoyable potboiler if completely predictable. Colin Farrell doing his thing and Samuel L being Samuel L - nothing wrong with that! 7 / 10.

Stuck on You - quite funny in places, but not up to the Farrelly Brothers usual standard. The funny bits ARE very funny though. 6 / 10/

Paycheck - though this was really good! I know that Ben Affleck has his knockers (insert gag here ;) ), but I thought he was very convincing, and Uma Thurman was good as well (especially considering that, in one review, it said that she did nothing but hover in the background). Oh, and it's good to see that John Woo can get his dove into every single film he makes! 8/10

We also went to the pictures and saw Troy - absolutely fantastic. Ignoring the fact that most of us already know the story, Wolfgang Peterson has really set it up well and the fight scenes are excellent. At just over two-and-a-halfs hours long, it's a bit of a bum-number, but I'd definitely go and see it again. 10 / 10


Roll on The Day After Tomorrow!

I honestly thought it was slow. And I had a good idea what was going to happen quite early on. Having said that, I'm not a big fan of Nick Cage but I thought he played his part well.

i saw that at the cinema, absolutely fantastic movie i'd go with ur rating of it too

just watch "paycheck" on DVD.... slow to begin with but not bad, the ending was a bit poor though i give it 7/10 and ben affleck 9/10 ;)

also watched "daredevil" last night, pretty good 8/10 (seems to be a bit of a ben theme doesnt there :erm: )

Re: Rate the last movie you saw...
 
The Day After Tomorrow 8/10 although the plot mite lack a bit but it was good, hopefully the dvd has loads of extras cos then ill prob get it on dvd! :D

(8/10 mainly due to amazing special effects!)

SOSAGES 28-05-2004 14:11

Re: Rate the last movie you saw...
 
i think its good we all have different opinions on films - i wouldnt of given any of the last 6 listed a high mark 5.10 if they are lucky.

tdat looks fancy thats where it ends


anyway last film i saw was last weekend
50 first dates - could of been better but harmless 6/10

Anyway.....****ing brilliant!!!!!!!!! 9/10 :D :D

i think we watched different films :) and this maybe why its taking its time to come out here - the movie for me anyway was full of dry humor and some corney lines - special fx are very good but the animatronix is pretty naff -its entertaining in its simpleness but i could of lived without watching it. another super hero movie that turned out naff :( i was dispaointed slighty especially considering the hype just like with troy - anyway :) 6/10 as it was kinda "fun"

Re: Rate the last movie you saw...
 
Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban (sp?) [cinema]

Hmm, 8/10


Much better than the 1st two. Which is to be expected, as the source is a hell of a lot better than theirs.

Well made & good fun.

Bubba Ho-Tep [DVD]

7/10

A bit of a slow start, but very good, & very...different.

Bruce Campbell is excellent, as always. The guy who played JFK was quite good too.

Saw the Lord of the Rings - Return of the King on DVD. Best of the three IMO, but I also thought it was the best book of the three. 8/10

took my little bro to see the third harry potter today..... enjoyed it, but must admit didn't think it was as good as the others 7/10
although gary oldman was absolutely fantastic

Re: Rate the last movie you saw...
 
Just seen the new HP movie. (Hint for adults. If you want to see the movie without the trouble of having to escort a kid, or be around them, go at 23:10 on a saturday night. There were about 20 people in the cinema of 400 seats, and all were 23 or older)

It was a really poor adaption of the book. It could have done with being about 30 mins longer and staying true to the book a bit. I'm suprised you like Gary Oldman in it Bex, I didn't think he did that good a job. Lupin was excellent, especially for an actor i've never seen/heard of before. Also, I think Gambon was a bit too sprightly for 150 year old magician. He could have acted a bit more like Harris, I would have thought. Hogwarts was completely different, have they moved it? The grounds were completely different. Rating for the movie: On its own merit, i'd say 6/10, based on the book, 3/10.

I saw the trailer foe Garfield. That seemed quite fun. I suspect it is one of those movies that has 5 jokes, and they put them all in the trailer, so when you watch it you don't laugh. Might be worth a go though.

thank you.... i have been arguing the point that the grounds were different since we were actually in the film and my bro says it wasnt...shows how much attention he paid.... i dont remember hagrid's being that far away from the school, nor being down the bottom of a hill, nor having mountains behind him, and the forest just didn't look scary anymore.
i agree with you on the new dumbledore, it was almost like having a whole new headmaster.... he doesnt have the same presence as the old one.
and i also agree with you on being a poor adaptation, another thing i argued to death with my brother over.

:welcome: ~$t&lker~ (what a complicated name ;) )

I saw Harry Potter last week and have to say that, while we weren't disappointed, we still feel that the first one's the best - 7/10

We also saw The Day After Tomorrow, which was brilliant - 10/10 and absolutely storming (ahem)

Saw harry potter last night, seeing it again today.
I'd give it 8/10.
The guy who plays Harry has finally been given some acting lessons (yipee!) although Hermiony and Ron are still far ahead of him.
Hermiony has a mean right hook too!

that punch was a goodun :shocked::)
i was dissapointed with the day after tomorrow, yes the special effects were excellent but the plot/storyline had something missing for me.i dunno maybe it just dident go the way i wanted/expected it to.
deff worth a looksee tho.
my fave film this year though was the butterfly effect excellent movie 10/10, if u havent seen it do.

Ah, another good one.

I watched ST:III, IV, & VI (not V! it sucks!) over the last few days, after watching II (not seen any in ages, & decided to work my way through the - good - ST movies).

III was OK, not great. Just watched it as it's needed to link II & IV.

IV was great. Different, but fun.

VI...I think this is my joint fave, along with II. Classic. Christopher Plummer's Shakespeare quoting Klingon general is especially good.

I've heard negative opinions of it, but....Is it really that bad?!

I nearly bought it, as I love the first one. Glad I didn't, now.

It didn't even have the same cast, did it? Different director too I think, rather than Verhoeven.

If only they had made a sequel properly.

Different cast (set 5yrs after the end of the first film) and a different director too (the director is the special effects bloke that did the first film tho - so the bugs look the same)

If only they'd made the damn first one properly!!

"Let's send a bunch of troops down to a hostile planet with no air support or armour or heavy weapons backup..."

"Hey, we're highly trained soldiers walking down a narrow valley with no scouts out, nobody on the high ground and, oh, look, falling rocks, let's not worry about them..."

"Dude, where's my car?" was as stupid as they come, but bloody brilliant, I thought. It is one of those movies that you would love for its abstract originality, or hate for being so dumb.

I was going to say a bit about the sequel, but anyone know what the deal with that is? Details are very sketchy. All say it is coming out in 2004, one even said US date is in July. But not many sites mention it, and IMDB isn't even carrying it (even though it carries movies in production for the next 3 years). Hmmm/. If anyone is interested, it is called: "Seriously Dude, Where's My Car?"

Out of Time - On DVD. Denzil Washington who's a pretty good bet for a film being good, and the guy who plays the alien doctor in Startrek:Enterprise plays the Medical Examiner in it. He plays a good part, v.funny at times. 8/10

The Core (DVD)

Maybe a 7 out of 10.


Silly, but enjoyable, disaster movie. Kind of like Armageddon, but inside the Earth instead of in outer space.

Saw Harry Potter today. Give it 9/10. I think that it's the best out of 3.

Just watched Bad Santa. Reasonably good but not really that funny. It did have a couple of scenes that raised more than a chuckle but not consistently funny. I'd give it 6/10.

"Conspiracy" (DVD)

9/10

Fact-based drama (which I think was on BBC2 a few months ago), about the 1942 Wannsee Conference - the meeting at which SD head Heydrich (Kenneth Branagh), his assistant Adolf Eichmann (Stanley Tucci), & a dozen or so other Nazis decided on the course of action which become known as the Holocaust :mad:

Gripping. Powerful. Chilling. Depressing.

"The day after tomorow" Very good movie, worth watching. 9/10 (given it 9 because the ending wasn't so good)

Mystic River on DVD - over-rated movie.

worked out who the killer was very early into the film.

sean pean is embarrassing as he over acts and trys to be De Nero.

Have to disagree with you completely.

I had a very good idea who the killer was about 2/3 way through the film, but it still didn't impact on how good the film was. And I don't think Sean Penn over-acted. Also, Tim Robbins was brilliant.

I can't believe all the hype they advertise with this movie, 'Clint's best film so far' etc, it is simply a boring film with a very slow storyline. The same can be said for 21 grams in which Sean Penn won the oscar. It was another slow paced movie.

In my opinion, Johnny Depp should've won the oscar.

If anyone's interested in watching a film with a good story then take a look at Seabiscuit. A very enjoyable film, 8/10.

I think you're either going to like these types of films of hate them. I like some stuff which is slower, and I like Mystic River. Each to his own I guess.

Although I'd give Mystic River 10/10, I don't think it's Clint Eastwoods best film either. I think that title should go to Unforgiven.

Unforgiven is good but Clint has directed so many good films. However, the choice of best Clint film is easy. It has to be The Good, The Bad & The Ugly, the best western ever made.

Dawn of the Dead (remake)

Much better than I expected. A decent & well made horror film. The speedy zombies were a nice change to the original classic version of Dawn (I assume that whoever made this had been watching 28 Days Later).

8/10

Probably one of my favourite movies of the year. One I will be buying on DVD for sure.
There is just something happening every second with different things round every corner.

Just as a heads up for you keen movie watchers, blockbuster online have an excellent deal. Even if you only rent 1 dvd a week, its still a good deal as postage to and from them is free :D £13.99 a month for unlimited dvd rentals is an excellent deal.

www.blockbuster.co.uk

I saw Big Fish over the weekend (Ewan McGregor & Albert Finney). It's directed by Tim Burton who's definitely back on form after the nightmare that was Planet of the Apes. Definitely a 10 / 10.

I finally saw Master and Commander - and surprisingly - it wasn't nearly as bad as I expected it to be.... 7/10

...Anyone want to choose the lesser of two weevils. :)

Mind Hunters 7/10 would of scored higher but Christian slater wasn't in it for long enough although good to see Jonny Lee Miller in a lead role

Mindhunters 7/10 :erm: I can only assume that you gave it such a high score because Slater was in it. You must of laughed at the fight sequence at the end, what was that all about :rofl: It seemed to be thrown in to try and give it some action.

Just watched Hellboy :) An enjoyable comic book film with a few good laughs in it too. 6/10.

Just seen Love Actually.

Wern't bad at all. Amazing cast. The ending was a bit silly, which let it down a bit. Other than that, it was pretty good.

Essientially it followed the love exploits of about 12 people who are vaguely connected. It covered the whole spectrum of love, from newly married love, forbidden love, unrequited love, newly found love, etc.

I'm not really a love movie fan, (I don't watch them normally unless it has American Pie in the title), so the fact I even watched it says something, let alone actually liked it. If you aren't a chick-flick, you can still enjoy it because it has some really fine ladies in it. One even gets her baps out which is nice. It is actually a bit weird. There are too many depressing moments to be an uplifting film, yet there are a few to warm the heart. It is sort of depressing if you are single, but it isn't too bad. Incidentally i'm moving to Milwaukee (If you have already seen the film you'll know why :naughty:)

So yeah definitely worth watching if you can. :tu:

Re: Rate the last movie you saw...
 
this week i watched:

shrek 2 -
was good fun - if a little short could of done with a better plot but was fine for kids and adults and was very pretty with lots of movie tie ins
8.5/10
Spider man 2 -
much like the first one it needs a proper baddy and for him to sort himself out - special fx were super but overall i felt a bit cheated it was kinda naff but visually stunning
6/10
Hellboy
before i watched it i was aware it came out in the states a while ago and hadnt hit uk cinemas yet thats always a bad sign. i also read the "plot" a demon summoned by nazi's at the end of ww2 - silly indeed. anyway it didnt seem to take its self to serious the main dude (RED) was funny and a good hero overall plot was exciting certainly but didnt really make alot of sence but it didnt need to wasnt watching it to be educated or amazed at the acting - it was a bad film but had a certain thing about it that deserved to be watched - but i think a lot of older people or anyone that like to engage their brain while watching a film will think it is silly 7.5/10

*EDIT*
i forgot i also watched Welcome to moouseport with the dude from everyone loves raymond - thats rubbish 3/10
and i watched the big bounce with morgan freeman and owen wilson and that was kinda pointless so 3/10 - the big bounce did have ladies in it so maybe 3.5 for the babes

Didn't fuss about the fight scene - but I do like the CSI type programmes so thats probably why I enjoyed the film - also seen Hellboy would also give that 6/10 - another rating Stepford Wives 2/10 - doesn't make a good comedy can't hold a condel to the original

It's from the Alien Legacy box set, so there's the deleted scenes from Alien, like Dallas turning into an egg.
Aliens is the special addition with clips from Newt's tale
Got Alien3 and Ressurection to watch through the night
