Film Thread (What have you been watching?)


Recommended Posts


I don't care who is reading this, never have done, Tomorrow I will be introducing my 12 y-o daughter to a 15 film. Assault on Precinct 13, original version, you really should watch this in a heat wave, to get the feel, not like British Colombia, Vancouver style though.

Thinking of one notorious scene from that movie, is this just you in skinflint mode, making sure she never pesters you for an ice cream again?

By the way, at 4:35pm this afternoon on Talking Pictures TV, they are showing the Laurel & Hardy film, 'Sons of the Desert'.

Gave 'Once upon a time... in Hollywood' a go.  Enjoyed the first 2 'acts' more than than last, which is hard to talk about without spoilers.  It's a pure Tarantino ending.  Overall, i liked it.

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Yep. A good film and some of the side stories were well done. I actually thought it would have been even better if it hadn't gone all Tarantino at the end. We've watched it a couple of times as Mrs V got it on't DVD

Wilde (1997) on BBC iPlayer

Pretty much a stellar cast examining the rise and fall of Oscar Wilde in British society.

Some really powerful performances and more nudity than an average episode of Game of Thrones.

An adult film for a mature audience that some will struggle with.

8/10

I've always been a fan of Oscar Wilde, I may watch that next time Mrs Shadow's away.

You might have told me it was mainly Michael Sheen & Stephen Frye getting au naturel

 

 

 

I mean really powerful stuff. A strong story well told.

Sorry haha!  It is a story well told I agree!

I normally find Stephen Frye insufferably smug but in this instance I was able to disregard his annoying persona.

Having a supporting cast that strong helps as well.

My only criticism might be that there wasn’t enough of an airing of his Wilde’s actual work itself which would have been interesting for me.

I think the writer/director assumed a level of familiarity in that regard that I didn’t have.

But in terms of revealing a take on the man and his life it is as you say a powerful piece of work with a number of good performances.

Just been to see 'Nobody' starring Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul/Breaking Bad).

It's absolutely fantastic.

Watched it today.  Really enjoyed it.  Yes, maybe a bit formalistic, but cracked along at a good pace, no filler.  90 minute movie for once instead of the 2hrs plus bloated affairs that seem common.

This is coming soon. It could be awful. It could be amazing. I'm hoping it is both.

 

This has come out in the USA (another month 'til it hits UK screens) and the reviews suggest it is one of those good Nicolas Cage movies; the ones that come along every now and then and remind you that he can be more than a one-man meme factory. Looking forward to it!

Just finished watching it. Utter tosh. I loved it, the wife hated it.

I’m feeling quietly pleased and slightly smug, serves her right for the years of misery heaped on my shoulders subjecting me to the endless stupid, turgid episodes of Eastenders and Emmerdale.🥳
