MOVIE REVIEWS

Recommended Posts

I saw Everest and thought it was good and very true the book, Into Thin Air. The thing is, the book is outstanding so I found myself comparing the film to the book.

 

Fascinating book. And not a bad movie. Shocking really, the complete lack of professionalism amongst some of the experienced guides, especially in such a dangerous sport.

So what's the thoughts on Dead Pool - yet to see it but sounds pretty good.

 

Anyone seen Revenenennencenet (damn spell checker!) - how is it?

Spotlight. Just go and see it.

 

I have no doubt it is excellent and given the reviews 8.2/10 it's certainly the case.

 

However I'd just leave bloody angry after seeing it.

 

I have no idea how Catholics still go to church or have kids at catholic schools.

 

Until the Catholic church does something you are basically supporting child sexual abuse.

 

And don't get me started on the lies that Pell is telling.

 

Sadly it is one movie I'll just need to pass on.

I'm keen to see it, though whether I will or not so know. I mate was posting on Facebook during the screening that the first 10mins is worth the price of admission!

 

There was a great post on fb doing the rounds, where deadpool was asking parents to show common sense with taking their kids to this movie, as it's rated R for a reason and they don't want the producers getting heaps of complaints as that'll knock the sequel on its head!

 

I wonder how much connection or relationship this had to his character in the first Wolverine movie?

I don't get to watch many new films now due to family etc. So I trawl Netflix at night looking for hidden 'gems' :)

 

I saw The Escape Plan with Sly and Arnie on the weekend. What a stinker! :shit:

If you want a light, refreshing, feel good movie that will leave you smiling check out "Never let me go" should be on Netflicks by now (2010).

I got dragged to the movies the other day by the better half, to watch "Sisters". I grudgingly went along.

 

I surprisingly walked out thoroughly entertained and enjoyed the whole thing.

 

PS Tina Fey is hot in my book!!

 

Cheers

I saw Deadpool on the weekend. I really enjoyed it. Ryan Renolds is very good. His typical sense of humour comes out in the role.

 

Well worth the money to go and see.

Yes, def not a kids movie - I checked it out and it was pretty awesome but somehow didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would have - ticks all the boxes but misses out on one I can't quite put my finger on.

I dunno if I am getting old or not, but these days I rarely see a move that I think was really good.

 

I still remember seeing Saving Private Ryan in the cinema, and its probably the last movie I can recall where I walked out and thought "THAT was awesome"

 

However, in the last week or two I've had cause to watch a few bits and pieces. The wife's been out so I've been sitting down to see a few movies I've missed in the past couple of years.

 

So I'm here to tell you about Django Unchained - best movie I have seen in a long time.

 

I'm not even much of a Tarantino fan, but I thought this was an excellent movie.

 

Certainly the best I've seen for a while!

One of my favourites (But I am a Tarantino fan)

 

Saw Deadpool last night. Quality stuff. Ryan Reynolds is very good. Some of it is a bit cheesy but it about a comic character after all!

I'd be disappointed if there wasn't some cheese in it.

 

I think I'm gonna have to go see it by myself....

geee wizz Tri-B, you have a lot of catching up to do. You are lucky, there are even better movies out there than Django, but yes it was good. If i was you, i would start with the best picture winners for the academy awards then work your way back trough the nominations. I would probably skip birdman though.

Replace it with a little know art house film called "Frozen" which didn't seem to get anywhere near the recognition it deserved - just because it was done in cartoon format :smartarse:

The longer Django went the less I liked it. I think mid movie I hit what I have self-diagnosed as Tarantino saturation. I stopped finding his confliction of music and content to be interesting. It just all became very pretentious and predictable. Give me something different man.

 

Hateful 8 got meh reviews, anyone see it and like it?

I had the exact same feeling about that film. It started great but by half way I was thinking it was all too 'shouty' for me. I was glad when it was finished.

Just watched a great little surf film called Bella Vita that features a guy called Chris del Moro. It centres around the surf scene in Tuscany and has some lovely segments about the artisan way of life.

it is not a typo!

 

Last time I was in Tuscany I didn't see much surf, but I did see a lot of "first time out of the USA" American tourists thinking "I have developed a unique affinity with Florence - I must write a book about this!". :lol:

 

 

edit - actually looks quite interesting:

 

Can a region surrounded by land produce world class surfing waves? Internationally acclaimed surf-filmmaker, Jason Baffa (singlefin: yellow, one california day, one beach) documents surfer, artist and environmentalist, Chris Del Moro on a pilgrimage back to his Italian homeland on what most perceive as a 'Don Quixotian' quest but transforms into a modern discovery seeped in culture, tradition and passion. Moreover, it is what Chris finds in the beauty of Italy and the distinctly passionate connection the Italian people have with family and tradition that reveals a greater truth.

We really enjoyed in Pete, watched it again last night. I'm going to check out more of Jason Baffa's work.

Watched Fruitvale Station last night, not bad not bad. Story of that young black (it's relevant) kid Oscar Grant who was shot by a cop, which led to all those riots and looting in the states.

 

Not exactly a feel good story and you wonder about the poetic license putting a halo on the kid, but worth watching for sure.

The Big Short. Hmnnn - never thought I'd get an economics lecture from a naked Margot Robbie in bubble bath - I don't think I will ever forget the nuances of "sub prime loans" as long as I live.... :)

 

Just watched it and I also loved the scene with Selena Gomez explaining short positions at the Roulette Table. Totally got it, but then again, my MBA Economics lecturer is a mid-50s, fat, ugly dude!!!!.

Movies these days are mostly pretty bad. Studios are just profit motivated (can't blame them) and they just churn out movies based on comic book super heroes or old TV shows again and again and keep killing it.

 

It's a sad reflection on the general intellect of the community.

 

If I find out someone's favourite ever film is based on a comic book character I will never be able to take their taste or opinion on pretty much anything seriously ever again.

 

If I hear you've just gone and seen the latest comic book based movie at the cinema, you've definitely lost points big time in my books.

I can enjoy anything. Well, nearly anything. Not everything I watch needs to affect me like Shawshank. I can enjoy something like Your Highness almost as much. Just park the brain outside and go for it. Life is serious enough as it is, and a bit of stupidity or escapism is often on the cards for me.

Introduced my young bloke to a classic yesterday - Ace Ventura. It's over 20 years old now and I still giggle like a school girl every time I see it.

 

Next visit he will be sitting through Convoy.

Yeah, loved watching it with the kids. Couple of things I hoped I didn't have to explain. But the movie is brilliant!

We just sat down & watched Grimsby. My wife had kept putting it off because she'd heard it had had bad reviews.

 

I haven't laughed that hard in years. Whilst it may not be everybody's idea of humour (hiding from the bad guys inside an elephant's vagina, who is then gang raped by the whole herd), we found it hilarious.

 

Warning: Don't have the kids, or your parents in the room when you watch it.

Saw Eddie the Eagle on a flight recently and thought is was terrific. Was skeptical at first but it built to a sensational ending (even though I remembered the story, sort of). Hugh Jackman has a cracker of a scene on the ski jump at night. Worth watching for that alone.

Foxtel has free Movies for 2 weeks, not sure exactly when it started but I am recording like an idiot. All the President's Men last night was great.
