What was the last film you watched?

Are there any people on here who appreciate quality films new and old?

The last two films I watched were:





I thought it was good. Actually, I had low expectations for this movie knowing that sequels tend to suck. I was rather suprised though, the story was really well thought out, and the special effects were brilliant. I would recomend it to any super hero or action movie fans. 8/10






To be honest I didn't have a clue what to expect from this movie. I knew nothing about it, I just happened to noticed it was on free movies on demand. It was well worth the watch, though. The story, while predictable at times, was very good even though things weren't made clear in the the beginning. The special effects were good and the acting was excellent. 8.5/10

Iron Man 2

It got real boring real quick, I felt it was diverging into too many different threads too quickly, gave practically no character exposure to Ivan Vanko, and was unfortunately trite, something I wouldn't call its original.

If you mean at the movie theatre, probably Star Trek and Batman. Barely go anymore and don't really watch the telly more than about an hour at a time.

The Wild Bunch, last night.

And I can't actually remember the last time I went to the cinema - I think it was August last year or something.

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and a unique flick called "Renaissance" with Daniel Craig were the last 2 that I watched. Both very good movies.

If you appreciate movies, you need to see the former, and if you like 'different' artistic sci-fi films, see the latter.

I didn't know it had Daniel Craig in it. Come to think of it, I only just realised that the movie was in English and not in French. Heh.

It was good cyberpunk, but the film noir influence was too smothering, I got pretty sleepy by the third quarter.

Part of The Longest Day. I say 'part' because the (da-da-da-daaa) film is absurdly long. After what felt like about two hours, the Allies had only just begun the landings.

The last one I watched: I Love You, Man.
It was an okay movie, but the most important thing is now I understand where a lot of those douchebag taglines come from. I think that's easily summed up by Maddox's You're not Dave Chappelle article.

Last one in theaters? Probably G.I. Joe. That movie was not altogether spectacular, but it did in a way remind me of Star Wars... must've been that strange underwater battle.

Last night I watched The 400 Blows. Really really good film. The story is very good and kept me interested. The acting was good too.

Let's see. Well in theatres I saw Iron Man 2 twice.

On DVD I watched:

Alien vs. Predator
The Omega Man
Escape from Planet of the Apes
The Planet of the Apes (2000 edition)
Superman
Superman II

Amazing that I found time to write my results for my pgroup project. LOL.

Yeah, most of the complaints came in the form of "the story isn't as nice as it is to look at." Yeah, Daniel Craig voiced the main character.

Héh just happens I went out to the cinema, had go at the new Robin Hood flick, from Mr. Ridley Scott. Wasn't a bad film, entertaining enough, though it had nothing special.

Nothing "new", not sure if that's possible in films anymore, but I felt it could've have been more. But enjoyable. Didn't feel like I wasted my money and time.

Next to that I bought some DVDs, including the Blade Trilogy. Just for the first one; as it has some nice kick-ass scénes. The other 2 sequels... lets not talk about that

Also picked up Watchmen, which I enjoyed a lot and one oldy: The magnificent seven. A western, which is a rip-off from the Seven Samourai. Still had a fun time to watch it.

Last two at the cinema were Iron Man 2 and Clash of the Titans Wasn't overly impressed by either.

Last two on Bluray Batman Begins (last night) and Unforgiven. Which was Lynk and Avery's fault. They brainwashed me in Skype talking about Westerns.

PVRed Zack and Miri make a Porno, which was pretty enjoyable.

Watched a bit of Transformers 2 on one of my movie channels. Hope the 3rd is better.

Now that I think of it: the Dark knight, road trip, Chappelle (season 3 I think), blue collar comedy tour, white fang, white fang 2, ghost in the shell 2, and part of Ghost in the shell 1.

I watched Eraserhead not to long ago, my first David Lynch film. It was rather disturbing at times especially the end scene but you really have to appreciate how good of a job Lynch did considering his extremely low budget (made in film school).

It's on youtube if you want to watch it.

I give it 2.5 out of 5 It wasn't bad, but it wasn't very good either. A remake of an anime that was infinitely better (4.5 out of 5 for the origional). Basically the remake is just an action movie, if you're into stuff like Iron Man 2, and Avatar, it should be fairly entertaining.

We watched Star Wars on Sunday night. The last movie we saw in a theater was a month or so back when we went to see "How to Train Your Dragon". It was a fun show.


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"

Read The Adventures of Jolee Bindo and see the amazing Peep Surgery

My last movie was The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. This is Heath Ledger's (R.I.P.) final film, he unfortunately died while they were still filming it.

A very good movie IMO, but I am still confused on the ending a little.

Last two I watched were Daybreakers and District 9. Daybreakers was pretty much what I expected it to be, and something I'd watch again. District 9, I can't say it was bad, but maybe not something I'd watch again. The possible sequel, well, I'll still give that a chance.

I've seen District 9 myself. Completely different from what I was expecting. I agree with you, I probably won't watch it again but I am curious about the second one.
