Nearly died of a cringe induced seizure when I saw that Brooklyn trailer.


What are ya like?

Was it a bit twee and overly sentimental? Looked that way but reviews were pretty good and Searsher whatsherface is very watchable.

I think I did 15 or 20....it's not often I'll turn a film off but that was honestly just embarrassingly bad.

watched Attack the Block, pretty decent low budget flick. looked good, not a lot of violence but a few choice scenes that were good. most importantly it actually got to me, i got a bit scared of the monsters at times. nothing special but fun. Boyega and lead actress are decent.

Went to a screening of Pride & Prejudice & Zombies last night. I hoped that is would be good but kinda expected it to be naff (possibly not staying to the end) but I was more than pleasantly surprised. It was brilliant and pretty much exactly what it says on the tin! Good humoured, sumptuous and opulent sets/settings, laced with over the top action, romantic intrigue and solid performances from everyone involved (I thought Matt Smith was particularly good). Definitely check it out if you can!

When I got back I watched The Happy Dinosaur and thought that was great too. The visuals are stunning, every new Pixar seems to raise the bar from the last and this was no exception in that regard. Good story, lovely characters and genuinely heart warming. I had a couple of small gripes and it won't go down as a Pixar classic but it's a rather pleasant way to waste away 90 minutes 8)
I know about the 10+ hoes a week, and its something Im willing to do.

Saw Predestination - very good film enjoyed it (Although I sussed out all of the ending way before time - it was still a good film). My missus usually can't keep track of Time Travel films, but she liked this one.

Also saw "The Interview" - well. OK. What can you say? It's a bit mad, Ted.

Meh.

I haven't seen the film yet, but I can safely say, people are idiots.

Luckily, Joel and Ethan have produced enough quality in their careers that box office bombs generally means nothing for their next project or five. They'll just keep kicking butt. The box office can take it or leave it.

speaking of time travel movies (we were..weren't we?)  - does anyone know name of the flick that was set on a cruise ship? - the protagonists get caught up in a storm while fishing and then go into a mindfucking timeloop / sort of like groundhog day with murder/mayhem.......absolute cracking little horror/time travel movie ....want to watch it again but rather ironically cant recall the name of it.. 8)

Yeah as RI said, Triangle.
If you liked that then you should (if you haven't already)  check out Los Cronocrmenes (Timecrimes) as it's also fucking awesome and so cleverly put together.

Given my general dislike of the Coen brothers' films, my and the missus are quite looking forward to the Caesar one. Looks pretty good.

For once their unlikely dialogue could well have a place (In hyped-up over-the-top Hollywood Moguls, Producers, Stars, Agents and the Rest)

Originally said that I doubt Di Caprio will get it - I thought Cranston was nailed on; Trumbo was excellent and I still think Cranston will nail it on the back of Trumbo alone. However, Di Caprio seems to be getting a lot of press and is really amping up the PR - his speech at the Golden Globes was a little divisive.

Why do you think it was divisive? I thought it was good.

Immature humour like Ted?

Because I despise that film, and I have a sneaking suspicion the humour in Deadpool may be similar.

Nope I wouldnt go that far, bud. I've seen Ted and and i'd definately say Deadpool is much better. But it's all about opinions, I didnt mind Ted so yeah... Would recommend Deadpool, good little film.

I can't stand that Ryan Reynolds. I can't stomach him. Can't tolerate him. He is the lactose in my lactose intolerance - he gives me the shits. I have been allergic to him since he made his breakthrough in the sitcom "2 c*nts a Girl and a Pizza Place." You could open a door with him, he's such a knob.

Even though the premise of The Forest was lovely and creepy, in the end it was very generic and run of the mill. Not terrible but a bit of a disappointment all told.

I'm with you, mate. He's got one of those very punchable faces. He just has the appearance of one of those annoyingly dumb, handsome, cocky, All American (I'm aware he's Canadian) assholes who by all rights should have peaked in high school, but somehow continued to be successful and in fact, get to marry Scarlett Johansson. It doesn't get much worse.

Saw Goosebumps last night with the missus.

Meh. Standard fare, with a few (obvious) twists.. Not that great, but OK I suppose.

The 3D though was probably the worst 3D I've experienced. I had to keep taking my glasses off to check there was actually any 3D in there.
