  • “Massive Racist” was the nickname of a totally unracist colleague...will have to check if he liked the film.

    Will watch the rest

  • Oh really? It's actually stuck with me a lot, I think it might be a bit of a classic in a few years time.

  • Just unpacked my box of DVDs, my collection is literally just The Sopranos, films about skateboarding chimps and Russian sci-fi. What the fuck is wrong with me?

  • Yeah you daft prick, all that should be Blu-ray or high def download by now.

    I don't know, but I can definitely tell you what's wrong with your collection. :)

  • You're right, Hard To Be A God is a bit of a slog.

  • The Fundamentals of Caring on Netflix is a good watch. Enjoyed it a lot.

  • Mud, madness and mumbling :)

  • Somehow made it through the Old Guard on Netflix.

    Let my mistake be a lesson to you all.

  • What a load of old toss, eh? You tried Mortal Engines yet? A different kind of old toss but at least it was ridiculous enough to be enjoyable on some level... Don't know how these projects get production budgets... 🤷♂️

  • I thought it was fine, shit but fine and a bit of fun, but I like all the resident evil films.

  • Much like this warrior nun shite I'm watching on Netflix.

  • That is also appalling, I find the voiceover stuff in it really annoying, I'm still watching it tho'... Started Cursed yesterday, even more twaddle...

  • You tried Mortal Engines yet?

    Nope, and I doubt I will because for whatever reasons I hate new shit films so much more than old shit films so next time I want mindless junk I'll put on American Ninja 4.

  • 'Freaks' on Netflix.

    Totally miss-sold as horror in the trailer. Terrible plot with a dreadful ending but not a bad way to waste some time.

  • The voiceover stuff really grates but there's less of it as it goes on. Cursed is next on my list of vaguely fun shite.

  • They've thrown a ton of cash at it, it's absolutely ludicrous but makes for a diverting couple of hours...

    I'm watching At First Light again, OH hasn't seen it, it's got UFOs in it, what's not to like?

  • Her voice is very annoying, maybe because it's so strangely deep for a pint sized adolescent and her character is a bit of a smartarse prick...

  • Quentin Tarantino’s 11 greatest films of all time:

    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly – Sergio Leone, 1966.

    Rio Bravo – Howard Hawks, 1959.

    Blow Out – Brian De Palma, 1981.

    Taxi Driver – Martin Scorsese, 1976.

    His Girl Friday – Howard Hawks, 1940.

    Five Fingers of Death – Jeong Chang-Hwa, 1972.

    Pandora’s Box – G. W. Pabst, 1929.

    Carrie – Brian De Palma, 1976.

    Unfaithfully Yours – Preston Sturges, 1948.

    Five Graves to Cairo – Billy Wilder, 1943.

    Jaws – Steven Spielberg, 1975.

    A few on that for me to explore.

  • I haven't seen 5 Fingers of Death or Unfaithfully Yours, but that is a pretty good selection of films. Fairly mainstream choice of directors though.

    Btw, Taxi Driver is my number 1 film, jointly with Random Harvest...

  • I thought the acting / pacing saved it, unfortunately plot was nothing original, I watched it hoping for something newish.

  • Movies I expected to hate but didn't

    Her: borderline hipster romance movie (not my genre) about a guy who can't let go of his ex, and signs up for a trial with a true AI os. Rich people. Computer bs. And yet good acting and some interesting ideas.

    The colour out of Space: I love the original story and Nick Cave...cha. But engaging enough and not a bad watch.

    Dumb and Dumberer: Slacker movies are not my genre and Jim Carrey, meh. However it's better written than I thought, takes the piss out of several movie tropes and the dead bird joke is genius.

  • Yeah I worked for the casting director at the time. Few years ago now.

  • Eurovision:story of fire saga, on Netflix is a fun, feel good film for a lazy Sunday. I’m not a big fan of Will Ferrell but I enjoyed this one a lot.

  • Watching Hyena right now. It’s not fun but very compelling. Not sanitised and reminds me of a number of unsavoury people I have known.
