Well, you can try me, but actually my film knowledge is a lot longer, more complete and far more broad than my gaming knowledge, and I have no shame over the films I have viewed, or yet to view.  

We all have "classic" movies we know we should have watched but haven't. At least those are two I will be rectifying  Razz 

What would yours be?

Jack Reacher


Finally decided to watch this after putting it off what with being a massive fan of the Lee Child books.

As an action movie it was ok, fairly interesting story.

However, as a good representation of the books it was pretty poor. The glaringly obvious fact that Tom Cruise doesn't look anything like how Jack Reacher is described in the books aside, the film never gave off the same vibe as the book and Tom Cruise failed to be like Jack Reacher is in the books.

It was a fair attempt but disappointing overall.

As a person who at one point studied film/TV and wanted to work in that industry I've seen a fair amount of stuff, particularly the "classics"

But I suppose my greatest sins when it comes to not watching universally praised films are the following:

The Godfather (All three!)
Taxi Driver
The Shawshank Redemption

Those are the first few that pop into my head, I've just never got around to watching them.

Saw Million Dollar Arm tonight, a true story about Indian baseball players. It's such a typical true life movie, ticking all the usual dramatic boxes. But it's easy viewing and fairly charming enough to watch. Perhaps more points if you actually like baseball, or have more of an interest in Indian culture.

Avengers Assemble for the first time since seeing it at the cinema.

It's interesting the things that you pick up on second watch when you are not sitting there gawping at a big screen due to your favourite comic book characters all being brought to life.

Last weekend I watched Alien vs Predator Requiem. What a pile of shit! The AvP movies are the 'value range' of both franchises but while the first AvP was entertaining rubbish, the sequel is just awful. Poor characterisation and dialogue, awful camera and lighting work (I often didn't know what was going on onscreen because of it) and just a complete mess. Worst of all, it wasn't really a science fiction movie - it was a teen slasher flick. Avoid.

And last night, buoyed by playing Isolation during the day, I watched Alien. What a fucking great movie! Still superb and definitely better than if the same film were made today - it has a slow burn towards the reveal of the Alien and I can't see that that would happen today. I'm not sure the crew would die in the same order either.

Loads of visual cues from Nostromo used in the game too. And I miss model shots over CGI!

For the past four nights I've watched a film every night which is outstanding as most of the time I barely watch one a month.

Anyway, what I've watched is:

The Last Stand - Arnie's first film after politics. Enjoyed it which I was surprised about, crap acting, dialogue and jokes but still fun to watch.
Youth in Revolt - Not what I was expecting but had a couple of really funny bits. Apart from that not something I would watch again.
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters - Pants
Much Ado About Nothing - Joss Whedon version. Didn't understand half of it but still a great film due to excellent performances from the Whedon crowd especially from Gregg Clark and Alexis Denisof.

Tangled - Enjoyable and funny a couple of times.

Watched Ferris Bueller's Day Off today, and it was alright. I didn't think it was that funny, and Ferris is a bit of a dick, but I liked the headmasters adventures.

The other half and I watched You're Next last night in the spirit of Halloween. It was actually pretty good once it got going. Really great music too. Not the scariest or most original film but quite 'cool' and some good twists.

I think that out of the 80's classic films Ferris is definitely one that people either like or don't. I really like it but my partner cannot stand it.

This week I watched to films in the form of Tower Block which I was thought was really good, grim but good. Also watched Blitz which I'm sure was rated highly on release, we thought that it was pretty pants.

New Hobbit Trailer!

I know I'm in the minority of people who like the multi-film long form approach to these movies but hey its is kick ass fantasy adventure so shove off! Laughing

I watched Malificent last weekend. I didn't have high hopes at all (spousal film choice Wink) but I actually really enjoyed it. Thoughtful reworking of Sleeping Beauty that worked really well. And as someone that hates most (but not all) bloated  2hr plus movies that are in dire need of an edit,  didn't outstay its welcome (just over 
an hour an half - yay!

I also watched Predator 2. Not that thoughtful, or well acted/written and very 80s. Still fun though Smile

I missed the new Godzilla at the cinema but borrowed the Blu-ray and watched it last night. Very disappointing, what you want to see from a Godzilla movie is battles between huge monsters and every time this threatens to happen the film cuts back to Aaron Taylor-Johnson's dull soldier, the whole film is a bit boring to be honest and way too po-faced for a film about sky-scraper sized monsters. By the time Godzilla gets to do his stuff I'd lost interest. Elizabeth Olsen is completely wasted too.

It is better than Roland Emmerich's 1998 effort, but that's not saying much. Pacific Rim did this kind of thing much better.

Interstellar

It was very enjoyable but some of themes and sequences are very much the same as Inception but just in space.

I watched it in IMAX but can't understand why as there didn't seem to be any benefit to it...  Suspect

The Drop

Loved this. A tense and gritty slow-burner.

Great acting all round and totally my 'thing' when it comes to films.

If anything, it was too short.

I've watched three films today:

Defendor - Pretty much nothing original but the cast are great.
Jawbreaker - One of the 90's 'teen' type films from back then. Decent enough watch but pretty much a more user friendly version of Heathers.
In Our Name - Interesting and in places a powerful film, superb acting but let down by too many storylines in such a short space of time and a just ends ending.

Yeah I've seen that too, not last night but it's been on the Horror Channel a few times recently. As you said it's not too bad actually for a low budget effort.

Dominic Brunt, aka Paddy from Emmerdale, is a big horror fan apparently.
