    Films

    I watched "The Woman In Black" the other day, anyone seen it? For a British horror I thought it was quite good!

    Are the movie industry hitting a new low?

    In the last 3/4 years, i'm struggling to find a recent film a decent one.
    I often see myself watching or re-watching old and/or classic movies nowadays. I'm following IMDB's top 200 in a decreasing order.
    The last 5 movies i've watched, i had to press my dvd player's stop button in a couple and make an effort to see the rest until the credits.
    Today I toke a peek at a divx releasing sites and all I see is crap. (appart of "The Artist")
    The movie industry is killing the great stories and don't give a chance to someone blossom amongst all these "instant profit" pieces of shit.
    Even Sundance festival is looking too much mainstream nowadays.

    Is it only me with my pretencious taste of Cinema or are you feeling the same as I?

    Still, i'm looking forward for the next Nolan's Batman series and Ridley Scott's "Prometheus".

    I rarely watch movies anymore..... except for zombie movies as I know what I'm getting into before I start it.... but so many movies are a waste of time that I just don't bother.... every now and then I'll have 6 or 7 friends tell me I HAVE to see something and I'll check it out..... but that's about it... other than a few kids movies I've taken my children to I think the last movie I saw in the theatre was the final Lord of the Rings..... although I'll probably see the Hobbit if the world hasn't ended

    Hard to find 'anything worth watching' these days I agree Luis.

    The 1st film I'll probably go see this year will be Wrath of the Titans. I don't know whether that says as much about my taste in films or the quality on offer, Im inclined to go with the latter

    Going to watch Appleseed tonight, Japanese anime film from 2004 that features in the Hadouken! video for their single - Mecha Love.

    Looks very Final Fantasy-ish so might be good (hope it's dubbed )


    There's a void to be filled for a few genres that seemed to have died out - the action movie being the main - the latest efforts are awful (or not cheesy enough). That said the action movie could be to us what Westerns were to our parents and that run their course.

    TV programs like CSI and Bones etc. have probably had a role in ruining an action flick too. Now you look at the lead breaking a guys nose and you think 'so fake, the blood spatter is so at the wrong angle' - everyone 'knows' too much these days. I guess that's why the fantasy genre is so strong at the minute - people can't quantify or measure what it should be so they are drawn to it.

    We need more films like Super 8. Solid special effects to accompany a strong and enjoyable story. Stories being the key ingredient missing from a film these days. Hence the strength in program adaptations like Game of Thrones

    I started watching it and was in the wrong frame of mind, will have to browse it again I think - some really sick scenes in there.

    +1 Redknapp

    When I was starting college DVD players were new and Dvd's were expensive. The only DVD we had was cruel intentions. Pretty I've seen that film about 100 times

    Still haven't seen Inglorious Bastards


    Cheers for the tips though Mark - Law Abiding Citizen was on over the weekend but forgot it.

    Watched the 1st Sherlock Holmes (2009) last night, enjoyable flick given I hadn't much hope for it. Downey Jr and Law work well as Holmes and Watson but Rachel McAdams looks unreal as the love interest. Normally only ever seen her in rom coms or mushy shit but it was nice to see her in a different role. Made a bit dirtier I guess


    Drive - ace Surprised it 'only' done $74m at the box office but defo in the cult film list and probably this decades Scarface, Goodfellas , Fight Club etc. Must see imo

    Inglorious Basterds is superb, Christopher Waltz's performance is amazing.
