Me, Myself and Irene is a pretty funny, re-watchable movie.
I also have a lot of time for Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, but he's not exactly doing his Jim Carrey schtick in that one.
I’ve always found The Truman Show highly enjoyable when I watch it (probably seen it 5 times).
I quite like that one too. He's not really doing his elastic face stuff in that one either.
Have you seen the fan edit. Killer Horizon.
Watched the first two Resident Evil movies over the last two nights.. never seen any before but I played the game on PlayStation when it was originally released, loved it and to this day the most addictive game I’ve ever played (I hung up my gaming boots years ago though).
They are a tad dated but I still liked the movies. Takes me back to the game which helps too, the dogs, lickers, zombies and all that.. waiting for the Tyrant..
And absolutely no kidding, when I was driving back from Bunnings yesterday, we saw this driving alongside us...
Onto the third movie tonight.
Watched The Gentlemen last night
Typical Guy Ritchie pommy Gangsta tale.
If you liked Snatch & Lock Stock you will enjoy this .
Good story ..some twists ..humour ..violence ...well acted .
Wow, that goes from 0 to batshit crazy after the first ten minutes. Dont even know what to compare it too
Underwater- Kristen Stewart swimming around the entire movie in her underwear with her Ellen DeGeneres haircut. Little plot, no character development. Garbage. 1/10
The Invisible Man- solid movie, though not as good as the directors last effort Upgrade. 7/10
Cant be bothered going back and finding my review of underwater but i think it went along the lines of if they just went with a transexual early 00s eminem lookalike that kirsten was trying to look like instead of kirsten it would have actually improved the character and the movie
Watching Straight Outta Compton...
..I haven’t listened to much rap over the past 25 years, but these NWA would still kill it today, like they did during the few years I was into rap.
Back then.. NWA, Geto Boys, Public Enemy, Ice T, Run DMC and many others were good and I’d probably still listen to them today. Beastie Boys for sure.
Anyway, this is a movie thread, so I’ll just say the best thing about this movie is the nostalgia it evokes. How they rose to fame is good too. If only I still had my SoC cassette!
Richard Jewell. Interesting study on how the media can f$%k up a persons life with little to no regard and even less accountability all the while being major blowhards about how important their job is.
They have a point if they were actually professional, but most are just gutter crawlers sensationalising anything they can.
Anyway typical Clint paced movie. 7.5
Rampant - Korean zombie flick. Next I’ll watch Train to Busan to complete my Korean zombie trilogy.
Train to busan wont disappoint
A Quiet Place 5/10 - A collection of incredible scenes duct taped together with an stupidly thin (albeit interesting) premise and plot holes to run freighters through. I could buy it for about 20 mins but the utter silliness took over - plus with no character development the whole thing became a bore other than the brilliant set pieces.
El Hoyo (The Platform) 8/10 - I'm a sucker for psychological sci-fi horror/thrillers; this is dark and uncompromising, sets it's rules clearly and plays out nicely with a satisfying enough pay-off (this is where most in this genre get it wrong). If you liked Circle or The Invitation, this ones for you.
The Report 8/10 - Bit of a sleeper, this is an excellent docu-drama focused on the post 911 CIA 'interrogation' methods. Asks a lot of good questions, generally sticks to facts and doesn't get too preachy; Adam Driver carries effortlessly.
With the new bad boys movie out online I’ve been doing a bad boys binge...
Bad Boys: Haven’t seen it since I was a teenager... still love that f**ken movie...
Bad Boys 2: IMO... even better than the first.
These 2 are probably my favourite Michael Bay films along with The Rock.
probably nostalgia talking...
Just finished watching Train to Busan and it definitely didn't not disappoint.
To be fair this was way back in 1996, the media are far more responsible now.
haha yep i'm with you, classic sci fi horror
