me neither, and to be fair, most of the stuff cinema sins picks up on I wouldn't notice in a million years. Still funny to watch though.

That's cause they just pick up on stuff for jokes these days. Back in the day it used to be actual issues with films but still tongue in cheek. Jeremy, the guy who does that channel is actually an excellent writer. I've got one of his books and it's about a group of superheroes who have disabilities.

'The Incredible Shrinking Man' (1957). 9/10
Found this beauty on the Horror Channel, why don't they make them like this any longer?

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

I'm looking forward to Godzilla Vs Kong. Based on the trailers, and other reviews I have read, I think if I go into it expecting to find a couple of hours of action, fighting monsters and possibly a little humour, I won't be disappointed. I'm not expecting a realistic version of monsters fighting. I enjoyed the first Godzilla (although the 2nd tried to expand the story a little too much), and I enjoyed "Kong: Skull Island", so I'm expecting to enjoy this.

The last film I saw? "The Equalizer 2". I saw both of them at the Cinema on their original release.

When the first Equalizer film came out, I was planning to skip it, as I was never interested in the TV show, so figured I probably wouldn't be interested in the film. However, one night, I was in the mood to see a film, and saw that it had Denzel Washington in it. I had an "Unlimited card" (essentially a Cineworld season ticket), so it didn't cost me any extra to see it, and, TBH, I probably wouldn't have bothered if I'd have had to pay extra.

So, I figured if it was bad, all I'd lost was a couple of hours. I saw it, and thoroughly enjoyed it. So, when no 2 came around, I was excited. Watched No 2 again the other night, and it's still as good a film as it was..

8 out of 10, and I hope that Denzel Washington comes back to the part of Robert McCall again. I know Amazon has a reboot of the TV series coming, but that isn't about Robert McCall, so there is hope..

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

It's not often I agree with General when he says movie is bad, but OMG Godzilla Vs Kong is so bad it's laughable, the only good thing about it is the special effects.

Glad I didn't pay to watch it!!!

My six year old disagrees. As an adult I found it stupid, but my kids ( that are big Godzilla fans) loved it, and when MechaGodzilla appears they went crazy.

The film knows itís audience.

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

At the moment I'm watching a lot of Christian films on Youtube.


Too many of these are of the romance/return to faith/return to home town type but there are some that are worth watching. Also too many rapture/Left Behind types.



The best ones are those that don't try to compete on special effects or big budget films and focus on a message.


What I find is that some casts do a really good job of making a normal scene look acted where good actors can make acting look like real life.

You were, but when you go to see a film called Kong v Godzilla, expecting character arc & development and an acting masterclass would mean that you are the idiot and not the film maker.

( that is 100% not directed at you, that is a general point about films like this)


It’s like when people get angry about Star Wars, Marvel, DC etc. They’re kids films. They’re not excused from criticism but criticise from where they’re pitching to.

Well they are not really kids films, but they are designed to entertain, not be serious.

If you want to be bored to death then by all means watch something else.

everyone seems to be under the impression that I have a problem with monsters and monsters fighting and I don't. I accept that as it is a condition of the universe you are choosing to engage in.

I didn't want to get into it because I know I won't stop but what I do have a problem with is children managing to sneak into a high security base, manage to access a highly secured (and unmonitored) transport system, exit at the other end without any security or oversight, wonder around a base etc etc you get the point. Let talks about some miraculously invented flying (space) ships which can travel hundreds of miles towards the Earth's core and when you get there the team of world class scientists (specifically biologists) don't think to test the atmosphere and just assume they can take their helmets off and can breathe perfectly fine. Shall we mention Nathan Lind and how despite his field of expertise manages to do everything and anything including flying a brand new ship which nobody, including himself, has ever seen before?

As Judge Judy says, if it doesn't make sense it's not true. All these stupid stupid things completely ruin the movie. This isn't an alternate time, dystopian future or anything else. They paint it as present day in as close to out current world as can be so you expect similar rules, behaviours and realism from the characters with the universe. How can you have a highly secretive all powerful megacorp which has operated in secrecy and impunity for years suddenly infiltrated by dimwits? It does my head in and it wouldn't happen.

I'm afraid there are times when you talk complete bollox.
Based on this view, you should absolutely hate The Expanse.
You do know a 'proto molecule' isnt true, dont you - not to mention how fast they zip around the solar system.

Its fiction / fantasy, its not supposed to be true.
Obviously you also hate all the Jurassic World films for the same reasons.
