Saw Starsky and Hutch last night on DVD - very daft film but still quite entertaining, and Snoop Dogg was BORN to play Huggy Bear :D

Just been to see the "Bourne Supremecy" and I would rate it very highly.
OK, it takes a minute or two to adjust to the fast action camera movements but once your taken in, its a great movie.

Hellboy is great :tu: :D


I think the upcoming UK cinema release is going to be the same as the US director's cut DVD...even more footage :D

Yep, great fun. LOL, you're right about Snoop Dogg. His version of Huggy was excellent.

"A Man Apart" staring Vin Diesel - very confusing plot and sometimes you cant make out what people are saying.

Re: Rate the last movie you saw...
 
'Cold Mountain' - not actually by choice, it just happened to be on the tv while we were away. I found it to be a really compelling film, very brutal in places, but it 'felt' like a true picture of what life must have been like at that time.

In complete contrast we saw 'Shrek 2' on the plane, very funny - I need to see it again to catch some of the mickey taking of other films. The wicked 'fairy godmother' voiced by Jennifer Saunders, was brilliant :)

when i bought Kill Bill 2 i got Shogun Assassin for for 1.99 which is mentioned in near the end of Kill Bill.

i watched it on Monday and it is rubbish.. it's a typical dubbed japanese film which the usual stupid says etc and it doesn't end very well either as he never actually kills the shogun just his brother and then the film ends.

THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST

compellingly interesting film even though it's all sub titles! I expected to turn off after 10mins but it was an amazing story.

my knowledge of the subject prior to this film was that some bloke called Jesus born on 25 dec was crusified. apart from that I knew nowt else!

I learnt what the phrase '30 pieces of silver' means and also 'judas' and 'judas kiss' and that Jewish people were the ones who called for his death because he conflicted with their beliefs?

I'd love to hear what Russ has to say about the film or anyone else who's an authority on the subject.

Russ 05-09-2004 11:01

Re: Rate the last movie you saw...
 
I've already mentioned it in this thread somewhere (edit - post 14 here if you really want my opinion), although I'm nowhere near any kind of 'authority', just someone with more than a passing interest on the subject.

Most people who saw this film just to see what all the hype was about seemed to come away learning something new, for example one guy I know used to think that 'Christ' was Jesus' surname.

VERY powerful film with only slight artistic licence used (the Bible doesn't mentioning satan being in the Garden of Gesthemane at the start of the film and I'm not sure why they added the part with the blackbird) and the timing of the film was perfect considering that Christianity and Christian values get constantly attacked today.

Very disturbing as well, many left the film in tears. It certainly made an impact on me. Throughout the film while they were beating Jesus I felt myself almost saying out aloud "leave him alone!!".

Perfect ending btw, can't wait for the sequel :)

We watched 'a knights tale' last night on the tv for the first time, It was very funny and entertaining with modern(ish) music and language.
Mrs Swoop didn't want to watch it at first, but when it started with 'we will rock you' by Queen she changed her mind and then spent the next 2 1/2 hours wetting herself laughing.
Most enjoyable.

"The Chronicles of Riddick"

Not bad. Good action & effects. Pretty good if you're not expecting anything amazing. 7/10

Re: Rate the last movie you saw...
 
Go and see "I,Robot" starring Will Smith, it's great.

The storyline, the special effects and the action make it a really interesting film to watch.

Watched Catch Me If You Can of Sky last night - slow moving in parts but on the whole, highly entertaining.


Must admit - not a fan of Leo Di Caprio in the slightest but he was useful in this film. The true story aspect was entertaining as well, along with the text at the end updating the story.

Good story, good cast, & some bloody brilliant fight scenes.

shanghi knights was very well made - not the best film ever but certainly had its moments the Singing in the rain section was superb - watching Jackie perfrom the moves at his age is fantastic its just a shame it took so long to get him into hollywood and the big movies - now if only he could get out of the sidekick roll and make some better movies life would be better as his last few efforts have been very poor...

cant be bothered with proper reviews until i find a good film or at least a poor one i can slate a lot.
But i watched "The day after zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz" last night and if anyone could tell me if the last 45 mins got exciting i will watch the rest but i had enough - it was silly and crap, more silly that most films, looked good but i think id rather have a plot.

2/10 but could be worse if i bothered to watch the end.

No doubt there will be a 3rd....
6/10

SOSAGES 17-09-2004 19:04

Re: Rate the last movie you saw...
 
yes i woudl assume so given the ending - but i cant see why they make the films look so low budget it will have a lot of support from the computer games players as well as horror flick lovers...

it just needs to be better written itwas better than the first one but it aint saying much i agree 6/10


its a shame really because resident evil games are actually, although very simple, quite appealing.

I was heartbroken when I saw that it was totally crapped out, and "dumbified" in the first movie.

George Romero should have made the first, how come some of the great horror director's always get screwed with inferior projects? Romero was fired because his movie was too much about zombies I guess the studios were wanting a sequel so it has to be more about umbrella...

dilli-theclaw 18-09-2004 22:10

I watched resident evil 2 today - and I also think it was about 6/10 - not too bad - I think I'll watch it again 2morro :)

13 going on 30 - good bit of entertainment (chick flick) and J Garner shows she has talent. the script was a bit lacking and was poorly executed - Garner managed to turn it around though.

Butterfly Effect - actually lived up to my expectations and it left me wanting to watch it again to figure it out more. fine bit of cinema work - well developed script and delivered by people who had an obvious interest in producing something more than just the usual mass produced hollywood junk.

Re: Rate the last movie you saw...
 
Collateral
Not a bad film, fairly entertaining to watch with a good "13th Floor" style ending but it doesn't surprise or make you go "wow!" like a film such as LOTR 2 would.
It's a film to pass the time but a similar movie like Phone Booth is much better.

Open Water - supposedly based on a true story, but as the two divers were never found, how do they actually know how they did die, which is what the film dwells on most. :erm:

If your a novice scuba diver you'll never want to get on a dive boat, and if you've never dived it might make you unecessarily worried.

If your an experienced UK scuba diver it makes a good comedy. There's so many things done wrong by the divers, and they've not got basic safety kit with them, as well as the bods running the dive boat. I get the impression that however directed it has only just about got wet in a swimming pool.

If I remember rightly, I saw a documentary on this while in the US this summer. The original story is a single female diver who was stuck out there for a couple of days. She was a documentary maker or something and as part of it they took her back to swim with sharks again.

Collateral: It was ok. Nothing special. I could see the way the movie was going to go from about 20 minutes in. Bit predictable. Funny to see Cruise being the tough man. When he was hopping in the action around he looked like a Thunderbirds puppet in a badly fitting shiny suit. Be prepared for a lot of facial hair too! :)

A great movie, the most memorable part is when that guy goes crazy and shoots his instructor, after that it's your typical war movie.
Black Hawk Down is better, and more realistic.

Sorry just spotted this. As far as I can recall, the actual events of the divers dying was in Aussie. As ever the US is making the film so they've made it all closer to home and filmed it somehere in the Carribean. It may well be that as you say one of the film makers also had a lost by the boat experience.

Anyway, back to the film reviews. Surprised noone in this thread has mentioned they've been watching Star Wars given the reent release of DVDs (OK there was a thread dedicated to the DVD, but we do like a bit of duplication on this board :dozey: )

Well, seeing as you mentioned it ;) , I've been watching all 3 over the last few days, and can safely report that they all get 10/10 :tu:

I'll also give 10/10 to the documentary on the bonus disk as well, 'cos it's brill!

I've only managed to watch Star Wars : A new hope and the bonus disc so far :)

I was very impressed with the bonus disc.

Star Wars was very good - but I did find a couple of flaws with the sound track (creative decisions rather than physical problems) so I'd only give it a 9/10....

Re: Rate the last movie you saw...
 
it's a shame it's just the same 3 versions that were at the cinema in summer 1997. new money for old rope. still I suppose for you young people this will be your first time!

I even remember back in 1977 going to the flicks as a kid to see the original 'star wars' film. those were the days... the original movie without touch ups in a cinema where this 'usher' girl came up to me after I pressed the button on my watch to light it up and check the time. "if you use that touch again I'll throw you out"! These days you cant watch a film without some plonker on a mobile ruining it - perhaps that's why DVD is so popular.

I rate Star Wars from my viewing in the 1970s as 10 out of 10 due to the fact that I went back to see it again and as a kid at school if you had only seen it once you were a fool!

I rate the 1997 revamped versions as 10 out of 10.

you're not going to be happy with my review then! just seen this last night and this movie has a number of problems...

1. the score/background incidental music - bloody awful and out of sync with the action. it belongs in those scenes from friends where joey plays 'Dr Drake Remorez'. totally ruins tension in a number of scenes.

2. oliver martinez - apart from his character being a redundant part of the movie we had to turn the sound up high to try and figure out what on earth this crap actor was saying - and we still couldnt.

3. the script - all over the place and since when did a serial killer profiler behave like such a crap detective?

4. DNA - a major plot hole. I'd expect the cops to have taken DNA samples and had DNA been taken from a suspect early in the film the script would not have worked!


It had great ideas and the director and the sound production ruined them.


The first 8 mins or so are brilliant though and belong in another movie.

The film is just about watchable as a B movie but not worth anything other than renting. I had high hopes for this film and had been looking forward to it for months. :(

Just seen Layer Cake...

Very good. Good style by the director. Good story. Well, I enjoyed it at any rate...

Anyone for a cup of tea? ;)

Got it free with the Mirror about a week ago but I've seen it before.
This film made by Channel 4 is actually a quite depressing movie for people like myself living in South Wales and Yorkshire because it reminds you of how hard times can be in the South Wales valleys and parts of Yorkshire.

In these times when everything is all about "technology", it's easy to forget about the guys who worked in the mines like soldiers for years.

Now that the mines are gone, it's easy to see why parts of the South Wales valleys are no-go areas full of crime - that's all they can do to survive. :(

Just saw Collateral today. Though that it was good. Different to see Tom Cruise play the baddie.

Saw Resident Evil 2, while in Canada.

Not a bad movie, especially seeing as it's based in an arcade game.

Personally I'd give it a 7/10 as an action movie. Nice to be able to leave you're brain in a bucket, and enjoy an action-fest.

just seen wimbledon, and imo gets a 8/10. but i like chick flicks so all you boys out there dont bother going to see it.

a good story about an ageing flagging tennis player who falls in love while at wimbledon and ends up winning the title. bought a little tear to my eye too.

Matchstick Men

A Ridley Scott film, with Nic Cage as an obsessive/compulsive con-man.

Started off slowly, I thought, but soon got much better. Very good cast, & a twisty-ending. Worth watching :tu:

Man On Fire


Quality film. 9/10


Lots of action / Lots of cool shots of Mexico City / Good actors / Good Storyline.


Reminded me a little of the film "Leon", which is also very good.

Hmm. Stupid, but enjoyable. One of those "switch off your brain & enjoy the action & FX" movies.
