I watched 'Runaway Train' last night on TV - and was left wishing I hadn't - talk about pile of pants. 2/10

In the cinema last film I saw was 'Passion of the Christ'... unsure what to rate this one, certainly a moving film, visually shocking, and relentless in it's presentation. 8/10 for that - 1/10 for leaving me feeling incredibly depressed/shocked afterwards.

Is that the one with the UN agency led by Captain Picard trying to catch a train stolen by terrorists?

LOL, no. I believe the one you are thinking of is "Alastair MacLean's Death Train"

Whatever it's called, I can remember wasting a couple of hours I could have been in bed watching it on C5. :disturbd:

So what was your disastrous train film about?

Well, it wasn't actually me who posted about watching it, but.....

I have seen it before, & it is indeed very boring.

From the IMDB:

"Alasair MacLean's Death Train" - yep, awful film. The original book was...OK, but hardly great (it wasn't actually written by MacLean - it was written by someone else, after he died I think, based on a story of his). V bad film.

A couple of nights ago i saw a film i've been planning to see for a long time now....... Memento

Have to say it's been a very long time since a film has held my attention till the very end and this one did :)
I found it amusing, stylish and cleverly made...... it drew me in and held my interest...... leaving me with questions to ruminate after it had ended.
Having said that...... it's actually just a fun film too which just happens to work on a couple of different levels.

You can be a couch potato or a film buff watching it..... from either angle i thought it was cool :D

Thanks for that :) - I've read the book so I guess I'll borrow it and watch it with the hope it does the book justice.

You forgot to add badly written, badly acted and badly directed :)

Wish I'd watched Battle Royale on the other side now.
