Last Movie You've Seen

Crokey

Please post more than just the title. 

 

We don't need a War and Peace essay on the film, but at least give a couple of sentences of good and bad points and even throw in a rating if you want to, as long as you give some rationale.

Do love an old action flick and just the other day I caught Steven Segal's Out For Justice. (Probably the 50th time, but it's been a while).

 

As I said, I must of watched that and many similar films so many times as a young'un, but it struck me just how violent this film still is compared to today's movies. Pretty simple Segal film of course, and no big hit with the critics at the time. 

 

William Forsythe steals his scenes, seems to really enjoy his role there. I believe I read Seagal was concerned by this and pulled weight (Could be internet pap). But it was a real blast to watch. Plenty of swearing too. The movie's just got that tough edge I like in these flicks.

 

Don't wanna say the line in case it's a spoiler, and it's no Arnie, but damn if it isn't funny and one to remember.

 

(And now to read the thread during my cloud sim time, hope I find a forgotten gem).

I just watched A Star Is Born starring Bradley Cooper with Lady GaGa. Honestly this film prolonged into over two hours of a very underwhelming plot and character development that was too quickly paced in my opinion. The trailer itself was more exciting than the events that take place throughout this story. Of course if you want to watch over two hours of a love story typical of most modern relationships with dysfunctional narcissists I recommend this film, otherwise save your money and eat popcorn at home.

That film has one of the greatest bar fight scenes in existence.

Really was, very entertaining still and though Segal is no Tom Hanks, he really is at home throwing guys around there. Man delivered back then.

I watched From Dusk Til Dawn last night, it's a really good movie.I like the twist how the movie starts as a regular crime movie,but then it suddenly turns into a horror movie when the vampires appear and start slaughtering everyone.I also like the special effects and an interesting designs for vampires (from the ones that look like the ones from Buffy, to scaly reptilian looking ones, to a giant hairless rat monster that one of the characters turns into).

The Hills Have Eyes (2006) - IMDb I like to watch old  horror movies I watched before and have the encore  movies that play old films going back to the 1930's, the hill's have eyes was   good, had to turn the sound down earlier on with the screaming because my  neighbor across the hall leaves her door open and her grand kids play in the hall, I don't need them calling the cops on me thinking I'm  killing someone, I like Wes Craven films too, worth  a re-watch every ten years or so!..

Halloween (2018)

 

Halloween-2018-banner.jpg?fit=1920,1080&

 

Retconning all the previous sequels, Halloween 2018 takes place 40 years after the 1978 original. Shortly after the ending of the original, Michael was recaptured and locked up in Smith's Grove for 40 years. Laurie, now a grandmother, has been preparing for many years for Michael's inevitable return, and when Michael escapes once again, all hell breaks loose, and it is now in her hands to protect her family and finally put a stop to him.

 

I loved it. A great and intense sequel to the original. I also liked how it paid homage to most of the previous Halloween entries. The score was well done, too. I would give it a 8/10.

Just watched Joe Dirt for the 100th time. Even though this movie is by no means a masterpiece (its sequel is just trash however) I've always liked it for its overt cheesiness. It always makes me laugh when Christopher Walken's character Clem makes threats to stab someone in the face with a soldering iron lol.

 

Oh yeah and when this movie was released in 2001 15 year old me got a bit happy in the pants watching this...

 

 

Still do. Jesus Christ. I could stare at that arse all day long:ph34r:

I watched Avengers Infinity War, superhero movies are a dime a dozen these days but this was genuinely good, the villian was actually interesting, something which is lacking in superhero movies, the screen time for the large cast was balanced well, perfectly balanced as all things should be- sorry, couldn't resist ;)

 

it was an enjoyable movie, mixing action and humour well, looking forward to the next one.

I watched the new Coen Brothers Netflix film Ballad Of Buster Scruggs recently.

MV5BYjRkYTI3M2EtZWQ4Ny00OTA2LWFmMTMtY2E4

 

It's kind of a weird collection of short stories set in the wild west. I haven't watched a ton of Coen Brothers films, but having seen No Country For Old Men I could definitely notice some of the similarities in storytelling. Without really spoiling anything specific, I'll say that in both movies you kinda see the story/stories build up towards something, but then it steers off somewhere else or just hits a stop. It might just sound like bad writing, but there's a sort of chaotic nature to it that kinda works and feels realistic imo.

 

It was a really well put together film, but I can't really say I loved it. I guess I just prefer one longer story that you can get more engaged in.

I too watched the Ballad of Buster Scrugg.  It’s pretty much what you would expect from a Coen Bros movie, which is definitely not a bad thing.  Snappy dialog, interesting and diverse characters, unexpected turns of plot with some dark moments both dramatic and humorous.  The cast is excellent, and they give some riveting performances.  Most notably Tom Waits as a gold prospector and Tim Blake Nelson as the titular Buster Scruggs.

 

Speaking of Nelson, I would say of the Coens’ other movies, this most reminds me of O’ Brother, Where Art Thou.  Although unlike that movie, most of the stories, save for one really, ends in dark and depressing ways.

 

I just really love how the Coens are able to find little things about human nature that and bring them to light in a movie.  Whether it is getting a certain type of performance out of an actor that really fleshes out a character and grounds them in a real sense, or just in how a story unfolds in a half Hollywood and half real world type of way.  Most of their movies feel like a story being told in third person, or like someone who might exaggerate the details of a story to make it more interesting.  That’s really kind of what this movie is a distillation of.  Tall Tales.  Stories you might hear around a camp fire, or sitting around your grandpa.

Watched Three Billboards in Ebbing Missouri the other night, what a fantastic movie that was. I often see movies that get much praise and recognition as a bit over hyped, but this gem is my film of the year. (that I've seen, not release date related).

 

Francis McDormand and Woody Harrelson are on fine form, but Sam Rockwell just stole this film for me, captivated me fully and after the film, has you wondering. I really can't recommend this more. Sharp wit, dark drama, and Sol Star from Deadwood popped in too, lol. 

 

I loved this flick.

I watched The Magnificent 7 (both the original from the 1960 and the remake from the 2016) recently,kinda to prepare for RDR2 which I hope to get soon.Both are really good movies,there are many references to the original in the remake,but both are distinct enough to be interesting to watch one after another.Maybe I'll watch some more western movies soon,such as rewatching the Dollars trilogy or Winchester '73 or some others.

Uncle Drew.

 

Not the greatest movies, but I was really intrigued to see “old people” play basketball.  Seeing Shaq in a movie, I want to see a Kazaam 2.  Speaking of sequels, I hope they make a sequel to Uncle Drew and call it Uncle Drew Tew.  I liked it.  Just easy and fun.

Empire Records.

 

An essential 90s movie.

 

I think I’ve seen it a dozen times on cable.  It’s a comfort food of a movie for me.  Brings me back to the 90s, and being a pre-teen watching this wanting to be like the characters in the movie.  I still wish could make a living working in a shop like the one in the movie.

Watched 2 yesterday, one new one a little older.

 

Escape Plan, with Arnie and Stallone. Actually a lot better than I anticipated. Don't expect much but know what I'll get from most of these guys movies. That's one for the favourites list, IMO.

 

The Meg. Had to really, do like a b-movie and though this is no epic, it's definitely a guilty pleasure. Maybe a bit soft for me as I like a bit of gore with these flicks, but really could tell Jason Statham was having a good time, I felt.

 

Picked up both for peanuts really, cheap and cheerful fun. :)

Got around to watching Venom the other day. Had a lot of fun with the Eddie/Venom dynamic and the action scenes were enjoyable. My major gripe with the movie is the soggy cardboard mess that is the main villain, who only gets barely interesting towards the last half-hour of the movie because of another character that gets introduced. I feel like if the events of the last quarter of the movie we're pushed earlier in the script, the stakes of stopping the evil plan would actually exist and grow instead of being dropped immediately on viewers in the climax.

 

That said I found Venom as a sum of it's parts to be a enjoyable movie.

I watched Truman Show last week, hadn't seen it for several years before then. It felt like I was seeing it for the first time, I was picking up things in actions and characters that I'd not noticed before. Like I never really thought that everybody was an actor, including his wife and best friend, even his parents weren't related at all. Who they really were, were totally different from what they made him believe. The scene where Miran says he'd never lie to him, when Truman looks up I can see the betrayal and discovery in his face that his "best friend" is in on it too. Also when he is reunited with his "dad". It was heartbreaking really.

 

I also watched some deleted scenes on Youtube and a promotional short from back in the day which expanded on it a bit and was really enjoyable. Definitely one of my all time favourite movies.

I watched this intresting netflix series on the 23rd while i was at my uncle lloyd's place.

It's pretty cool for a science fiction/teen drama series set in canada.

10/10 reccomend it to those who like that sort of series.

Johnny English Strikes Again is as usual harmlessly funny, has few more laughs, far fewer cringes & stereotypes than the previous films. Most of the scenes are predictable but it's a great spoof of a spy film. Olga Kurylenko and Rowan made a great pair.

Knock Knock is a thriller starring Keanu Reeves as a family man who opens his home to two young women who are stranded. At first all is fine but things soon take a dark turn. The tension is palpaple througout, keeping you on your toes.

 

it's equal parts thrilling, distasteful and perverse, but sometimes bordering on edgy. Ana De Armas and Lorenza Izzo are great, their chemistry is electric. Reeves performance is a little uneven but overall good. 

 

It's based on the 1977 flick Death Game starring the late Sondra Locke, who was a producer for Knock Knock. Overall I liked it but from what I've read online reaction seems to be quite marmite, you either like it or you don't, but if you want to check it out it's on Netflix.

I watched The Christmas Chronicles and Johnny English 3 yesterday,both are pretty good movies.The Christmas Chronicles is IMO one of the better Christmas movies in the last few years,along with Daddy's Home 2.Johnny English 3 seems better than the second one IMO,but I can't really tell is it better than the first one since I haven't seen that one in a long time.I'm also glad Ben Miller is back as Bough.I also rewatched Home Alone 1 and 2, Elf, and Jingle All The Way on Christmas Eve and Christmas.

Went and saw Welcome to Marwen at the theater recently. Can definitely see where it'll connect with the artistic and creative types, plus it's a good against-type casting of Carell, but it feels mostly flat. There's a lot more to the story and the characters that just couldn't fit into the runtime, and the seemingly intentional awkwardness relates exactly that to the audience. A few good laughs, some topics and content I'm sure will make some folks uncomfortable, and a topic that needs another pass at.
