I've not seen anything new lately, but watched a few movies (some that I've seen more than once before) the past few days.
Some of the films I've watched lately are:
Wilderness: One of my favourite films. I watched it yesterday, and have probably seen it at least five times now. The acting and the storyline is just phenomenal. I do like most of the cast; I've been a fan of Toby Kebbell (the main character) since seeing him in Dead Man's Shoes (which is also a great film).
It's a British film which begins in a 'young offenders' (juvenile) institution. One of the juveniles, who has been constantly bullied kills himself and the other juveniles are sent to an ex-military training island to be taught a lesson. Things soon go wrong and the juveniles are forced to do whatever it takes to survive and get off the island.
There's a lot of twists in the film and the characters are portrayed very well. I'd recommend this film to anybody. It's available on Netflix, so that'a a plus!
Dawn of The Dead (2004): After contemplating whether to or not to watch this remake I ended up downloading it from the Sky On Demand film library. All in all, the film was okay but it wasn't the best. If I was to rate it I'd have given it a 4 or 5 out of 10. I wouldn't exactly class the film as a full blown remake either as there were only few similarities to the original and phenomenal Dawn of The Dead (1978). The only thing that they kept the same (in my opinion) was using a shopping mall to hold out.
The acting wasn't bad and the storyline was ace. The only thing that I really didn't agree with/like is how the zombies were. I don't know what the obsession with these zombies that move as fast as an automobile is, but it's a load of crap! As a remake, I'd have thought the zombies had the same physical abilities as the original, although that clearly wasn't the case.
Hostel Part III: Although I haven't seen the two previous films in the Hostel series, I decided to watch this one after being told it wasn't really a sequel anyway. I was surprised as the film was better than I expected. Some of the scenes were gut-wrenching, disgusting but awesome. There were some scenes that I didn't like because it was clear they were made to be seen in 3D and nothing else, but they didn't majorly [negatively] affect the film.
