Last Movie You Watched


Recommended Posts

Dans La Maison took me completely by surprise, I wasn't expecting much but I thought it was really good

 

I had all my eggs in KST's basket, but it was a good film (film not movie)

 

KST = Kristin Scott Thomas

I've seen just the first one as I've heard the sequels are just about the worst movies ever made(I doubt they actually are, but that's the impression I get when my mates have talked about them). I thought the first one was just about worth watching once, but nothing special.

 

I was in the same boat...I hadn't seen the Matrix, but it has had the pop culture hype for more than a decade. I enjoyed it enough, but the movies get worse. Watched the third film this evening...meh

When it first came out I was busy doing my military service and when I finally had the opportunity to see it, all of my mates had seen it and the hype in media was in full swing, so I wasn't in any rush to see it. I finally saw it in 2000 at my mate's place (he had a top quality home cinema set up, so it was the next best thing to seeing it in cinema) and I thought some of the special effects already looked dated. It was a pop culture phenomenon the likes we haven't seen since, apart from Avatar, so I suppose in a way it could be considered a classic (of sorts).

Saw Evil Dead over the weekend.  Bad movie - gore for gore's sake, and not terrifying at all.  Dumb, more like it.

 

The original (which I like a lot) was very tongue-in-cheek and deliberately over the top. I'm not a fan of remakes anyway but I've heard this one takes itself way too seriously, which completely goes against the spirit of the Evil Dead movies.

Has anybody seen Quartet, and if so, would they recommend it?

 

 

Funnily enough I saw it last night, Lofty!  Yes I would recommend it strongly.  Not for young men who like action films, though, but judging from your reading, I think you might like it.

 

Tom Courtney, Maggie Smith, Pauline Collins and Billy Connolly - all retired musicians in a retirement home for musicians.

A gentle comedy with some wonderful acting.

I watched 'Untouchable' last night. It's a French film about a no-hoper black guy who ends up looking after a paralysed man in a wheelchair. 

 

It's one of the best films i've ever seen. It's a very emotional film and extremely funny. I'd recommend anyone who needs cheering up to watch this.

I haven't seen it yet, but I haven't heard a single bad thing about it from anyone who has seen it. I heard they're doing a Hollywood remake of it, which I suppose was just inevitable.

I heard that too, but it definitely won't be as good. My mate and I started watching it, not expecting much from it but by the time it finished we just looked at each other and said "that was f**king amazing".

It is an absolutely wonderful film.  And it finishes with a scene of the real two men - because it is a real story!

Untouchable was one of my favourite films last year. It manages to be both very funny and emotionally engaging without ever feeling overly sentimental (like I would expect the potential American remake to do).

 

Nail on the head bluedave. It had my friend and I laughing our heads off many a time (usually something that Driss said), but was understated and gripping throughout. Those frogs know how to make a good film.

Moi dearest, have you seen Gilles Bourdos' Renoir, if so what did you think?

 

 

No, my sweet, I haven't. It hasn't come to my local cinema. But I was thinking of going to see No - now thanks to you I won't have to bother.

 

I went to see "Mud" the other day - interesting, but not riveting.
