whispering Watched a good movie recently? Post here, preferably with a trailer. (purpose being; finding movies that wouldn't have otherwise found).

Watched Hindsight yesterday, was really really good:

swansea247 haven't really watch anygood fils lately but i am looking forward to prometheus...


that and iron sky :D
Samination rofl, that Iron Sky movie reminded me of Gundam... all of them
jenks

One of the best films I've ever seen. Didn't fully appreciate it until I started reading about it a bit though if I'm honest.
_Jay_ The trailer makes it look extremely average, if not actually quite bad - but this is a film of exceptional quality. Saw it a few months ago. Seriously, seriously good.

Hirschi I can recommend Lord of War


Taken


and Lost in Translation

Battlship


Doomsday Book


Hunger Games

TBH, for me thats not a good thing :p Disturbing horror/thriller films aren't really my favorites, leaning more towards "entertaining" myself.

I have just watched this (under duress :/)... nope, didn't do anything for me. :(

Lilark I watched 'In my sleep' lastnight, probably the best movie I've ever seen. The plot was so original and unexpected, I'd certainly recommend it.

I wasn't really looking for recommendations per se. As people usually just list their favourite movies, but theres loads of smaller ones that at that time seemed awesome, but weren't something they'll think back to later. Thats why its 'Watched a good movie recently'. But bought Taken today, gonna blame you if it sucks ;)

Anyway, watched Romantic Debtors today. Awesome movie, if you like korean romantic comedies :P
ultraskool I love Jap Movies. Bunraku

Sorry to hear that :( The only things that bored me were the weired stuff she did, like arranging sticks and going to a temple. But the very first scene, when the camera pans along her body...that stuck in my mind through the whole movie.
There are a couple more things I'd like to mention why I really like this movie, but this is not a review thread, I don't want to bore anyone (including me) and it's okay, if other people think the movie sucks. That's what I think about "Antichrist"...this one was really disturbing and a film-artist-wankery (IMO)!!

Even though I like the Thunder song, I'd rather wait for Todd's new movie. ;)
Hirschi I saw Warrior (Great!) and Young Adult (Pretty good!) a couple of days ago.
whispering Been watching a lot of movies, lately. Some good ones too.

Week back watched Traffic. Seen it before, and bought the DVD in 2009 and only now watched it :p
Just finished watching the x amount of time Battle Royal, still as awesome as always.

Also watched a lot of good Korean movies lately:
Sunny dramedy about a group of girls reminiscing of their youth.
Someone Special romantic comedy about a dude who hears hes going to die in 3 years. Second time watching it, truly awesome movie.
Sad Movie the title really says it all.
My Wife is A Gangster the movie that really got my into Korean movies in 2005, still good.
Spring Breeze, A romantic comedy.
My Scary Girl, second time watched it, even better then i remembered. Its a romantic comedy about a teacher and a sweet girl thats a killer.

This is the one I'm waiting for. No longer care that it's not the direct 'Alien' prequel it was originally going to be. Hurry up already :(

Back on topic: Just watched 'The Boondock Saints'. The trailer does this no justice. Try and watch the uncut version if you can find it. Yes, that's Ron Jeremy. Yes, that's Billy Connolly with lots of guns. Very funny in places as well. Great film :)






Lilley Boondock Saints is an excellent movie, one of my favourites. Shame the second one was so rubbish, was always going to be, I wouldn't consider it a sequel really.

Hunger games was good, really enjoyed it.
Warnman Boondock Saints? It's the best movies I've ever watched.
_Jay_ Saw Mr. Brooks earlier in the week. Top, top film. Not what you would expect from a film with Kevin Costner and Demi Moore.

It's very dark, it's very well paced, and it's very well acted. Highly recommend it. I would suggest not watching the trailer first. It gives a lot away.

whispering I've always liked Kevin Costners movies, so will check it out if come across it.

Good movies recently watched;
Tangled, God Bless America, Flowers of War, Ted, Cop Out and The Spies.

Watched it again, seriously awesome movie.
latininxtc My favorite one to go back to has always been Pan's Labyrinth. Truly amazing storyline, the graphics are so realistic. And it seems every time you see it there's something different about it that you missed out on it in previous viewings

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqYiSlkvRuw

More recently, I've seen Wreck-It-Ralph. For a CGI film it is severely jam-packed with a lot of action, and it's nostalgic to see so many video game characters in there.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87E6N7ToCxs
don_simon3000 probably the best movie has to be "shank - the movie". but that thing is probably not for you folks. however for me, the content could not fit any better
Andy_Influx Whilst I havent really seen any outsandingly good films lately, there are some that were interesting:

Bigger.Stronger.Faster: Doco on the use of steroids in professional sports
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1151309/?ref_=sr_1

End of Watch: Very good semi-realistic view of two cops
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1855199/?ref_=sr_1

KnuckleBall: Doco by morgan spurlock (guy that did supersize me) about the knuckleball pitchers in baseball. Was pretty interesting as i knew nothing about it.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2343601/?ref_=sr_1

Snitch: has the rock in it, but probably the best role i've seen him in. Doesn't play a kick-ass action hero, plays a normal guy caught up in ****ed up circumstances.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0882977/?ref_=sr_1

and some terrible ones:

Spring Breakers: ****ing terrible movie. Saw it because James Franco is in it and he's always good. And he was actually probably the only good part of the film. Genius actor. Terrible ****ing movie. Has a 6 in IMDB. James Franco's portrayal must be five of those six points.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2101441/?ref_=sr_1

Also really want to see the Great Gatsby - has anyone seen? Leo's in it so you know it has to be at least PRETTY good!
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1343092/?ref_=sr_1

7.5 on IMDB. Looks good.
_Jay_ Saw Oblivion today. Visually it is out of this world. There is a thirty minute period in the middle where it feels like it's going to shit, but it comes good at the end. One of the more enjoyable Sci-Fi films from the last ten years.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1483013/?ref_=sr_1
Lilley Watched the Matrix again on Monday. Still such a good movie.
_Jay_ Saw Mud yesterday evening. Good film. Not a spectacular story, but good enough. The main attraction of the film is the chemistry between Mud (a man on the run from the law) and Ellis, a fourteen-year-old kid who tries to help him.

Yeah, magnificent film.
TheOneNOnly Watched three Akira Kurosawa films over last week:





And watched the first IP Man movie because it's awesome. This is the 10 person fight scene, over-exaggerated of course:

whispering Watched Cloud Atlas yesterday, thought it was really good.
_Jay_ I saw The Conjuring a couple of weeks ago and I almost shit my pants/left the cinema out of fear.

Genuinely a good horror film. No doubt someone will tell me it's shit, but I thought it was superb.

i saw it last friday was decent. Although not as scary as I expected. I haven't been shit scared out of my skin since the first Grudge.

A film NOT to watch: Silver Linings Playbook.

It's nothing but an overcomplicated chick flick. Seriously don't know how the hell it was even nominated for an Oscar last year. The performances were good I will give it to Bradley Cooper and the female lead for playing their psychotic characters.

Oh Life of Pi I thought was really good. The cinematography was brilliant in it. ARgo was good, but not awesome.

Oh and The Great and Powerful Oz to me looked amazing, but the storyline and acting/actors sucked big time. I'll have to see what I'm in the mood to see tonight.
whispering Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters
Great action movie, highly recommended.

Agreed, but the extended version is even better. It got some extra red stuff ;)

Lilley Jay if you haven't yet watched it, you would love The American. Right up your alley.

Yeah I've seen it mate. Good film. Nice off-key kind of atmosphere.
_Jay_

Going out on a massive bender tomorrow, so, Saturday I'm going to need some viewing material. I've decided I'm going to watch Event Horizon.

You know when you're proper fcukin' hungover you sometimes feel really vulnerable and pathetic? Psychologically fragile? Sometimes when that happens I like to freak myself the-fcuk-out by watching unsettling horror films.

Can't fcuking wait.

I've long wanted to watch that one, never got around to it.

Recently watched Pusher and half of the second before forgetting about finishing it. Properly good movies. I've moved onto reading currently though.

Watched Prometheus not too long ago which was surprisingly good. More scifi than horror, but reminded me to watch Pitch Black again. Apparently there is a third Riddick out now.
_Jay_

Interstellar.

Who's seen it? Talk to me.

Seen if twice at the cinema already. The second time was at the BFI IMAX, which is the biggest screen in the UK.

Yeah. It's ridiculously good.

Rodz90 I've seen it.

I need to watch it again, but possibly one of the best films i've seen. It took a couple of days to let it all sink in but it's so good. The soundtrack is also possibly one of the best i've heard in recent years too.

I liked him in A Time To Kill and Lincoln Lawyer, but his skills as an actor are severely overrated. He lacks depth/range, and there's no way around his accent. He's usually cast as someone from the south because of it lol.

I liked Dallas Buyers Club, but to me it wasn't an Oscar-winning performance. His character was still Matthew McConaughey through and through, and I think the only reason he won it is because he lost all that weight for the role.
_Jay_

Up until a few years ago, I would basically agree. I do think he can act now, though.

Have you seen True Detective?

The drunken scotsman I love a film with a good twist at the end. Orphan is a great example of this. Does anyone have any similar suggestions?
whispering Watched Edge of Tomorrow today, fantastic movie. I really wasn't expecting it to be good. The idea behind it (live same day over and over) is usually used in the shittiest episodes of scifi series.

Not a similar type of film really, but Matchstick Men is good for a twist. The Life of David Gale, as well.

Gone Girl got crazy good reviews from all of my FB friends, so I will definitely rent that when it comes out on DVD

Not sure why comment didn't appear.

Everyone on my facebook page who has seen it has said Gone Girl is really good. I definitely will be renting it once it comes out on Redbox.
