District 9 and I would give it 4*, really liked it despite the south african accents (really can't get away with them, thats the accents of course, not the people!)

Bridge On The River Kwai. Why does Yesterday think history can be told exclusively with WW2 documentaries, WW2 movies and repeats of The Antiques Roadshow...?

Eastern european accents would have been fine, chineese, even US, just not south african, I understand the point of it being based in SA, but i'm sure they could have managed to pop it somewhere else, like Mexico.

Mexico? So in Spanish and, instead of watching the movie, we'd then have been staring at the bottom of the screen reading the subtitles for the whole movie and not just the alien bits. Subtitles were fine before the advent of large screen TVs but now you spend all your time looking at the text in the black strip at the bottom and not at the picture above.

Great doc.

You really can't read the subtitles and watch the movie at the same time ...??
Can't tell if trolling or serious ...

I watched Takers - not a bad film, good to kill a couple hours to. Lead cop guy was an arse and I spent the movie hoping he'd die. Also one of the crims (Jake) comes under that heading of arseage also. Good ending though. Good explosions. Good gun battles. Good good good hahah

And now I'm watching The Lost Room - had it for aaaages, bout time I got round to watching it - fingers crossed it's a goodun =D

Not when it's on a big-ass TV that defaults the subtitle position to the bottom of screen, especially when it's showing something in letterbox format. Of course, if my lounge was big enough to sit 10m back from the screen it wouldn't be such a problem. In any case, even on a smaller screen they're still an irritating distraction.

Finished watching American Gothic. The episodes haven't been put on the DVDs in the correct order which meant much confusion at first as to wtf was happening, followed by getting up and swapping after every other episode.
Despite that the series itself was pretty decent; however, I can not stand Merlyn Temple, F off and stay in the afterlife, and the ending was ridiculously weak - but then it was cancelled, so whether or not that is the ending they imagined creating it was naff anyway.

Thanks for giving the thread a kick up the derriere, Kodo.

Last night I watched only for the second time - Machete.
Absolutely ridiculous, but sooo much fun. Old Danny boy's looking a tad worn these days - you could hide yer stash in some of those lines/trenches on his face - but he can still swing through a window, SAS style, holding nowt but some poor sod's intestines!
All the silliness to one side for a moment tho, ya gotta respect the dude; a proper hardcase and no mistake.
I'd love to see Danny and Steven Seagal have it out for real tho y'know - Stevie boy's many, many martial arts and skills against Danny boy's, er... hardness!

I loved Machete ever since I saw the fake trailer on Planet Terror and obviously enough people felt the same for Rodriguez to make the film. Shame it never really took off considering its got some huge names in it, I went to see it at the cinema on release day and there was only about 6 people in the cinema, though I think it classed with a Harry Potter films release so it was pretty overlooked.

Hasnt stopped him making a sequel tho and another sequel to that Machete Kills Again... In Space!

Looks like they plan to keep up the rediculous pointless fun for a while longer

Lol, didn't know about the third one - Machete Kills Again... In Space - brilliant!!!
Reckon I read somewhere that Gaga's gonna be in the second one. Sounds about right to me, she'll fit right in!

While looking up Machete I also discovered a new Sin City is coming out next year. Might have to watch the first again this weekend since it seems to have been ages since I last watched it.

Posted on 27 Jul 2012, 18:23:39 BST

But then, I might be incredibly disappointed like when 'they' said The Spirit was like Sin City - it was nowhere near as good, and a damn sight weirder. I love Sin City, I can't stand The Spirit. Might have to watch both again to re-affirm those opinions ;)

Watched Fury last night ...

Samuel L Jackson is a criminal who's just been released from jail after 25 years
Son of the man he killed gets in touch & wants to do a job
He says no
He meets a skank
He says no for about 30 mins more of the film
Skank tries again
Cue alcohol fuelled 'my life's more tragic' contest
He and skank *ahem* hook up
Followed swiftly by relationship of the dysfunctional pair
Happiness ruined by ... THE TWIST (I'm not that cruel to spoiler)

The movie drones on for an hour along the previous lines without much of what I was expecting from a 'gangster' movie i.e. guns & crime, before we finally reach the exceedingly dull, ridiculous and ... happy ending.

I was so disappointed, I wish I'd stopped watching 5 mins before it finished - it would have been a more realistic ending (she says with zero experience of gangsters lol). I guess the point was 'retribution' or some such deep and thoughtful meaning, instead of just death.

And we all know the American market doesn't like an unhappy ending ;)

Watched The Woman in Black [Blu-ray] with my lady. A fairly traditional (i.e. unoriginal) ghost story with a couple of mild shocks. Looks good on Blu-ray though.

Last night I watched one of the most under-rated films of all time in my opinion: Twin Peaks - Fire Walk with Me. David Lynch is a f-ing genius. I must have seen it a hundred times and each time I see something new and unsettling in it. It's such a terrifying and yet heart-wrenching film. In 1992 Emma Thompson won an Oscar for her role in Howards End, nominated were actresses for films such as Passion Fish, Love Field and Lorenzo's Oil. It's a crime that Sheryl Lee was never nominated, her role in Fire walk with me is amazingly sublime and should have catapulted her career into the stratosphere.

Laura: "Faster and faster... until after a while you wouldn't feel anything... and then your body would just burst into fire. And the angel's wouldn't help you, 'cause they've all gone away... "

I think in time people will view this film as a classic.

It is a classic. I definitely like that film more every time I watch it. I just wished David Lynch could hurry up and make another film.

Last night...? The Line and Extremely Dangerous.

I agree but if you haven't already check out his LP "Crazy Clown Time". "These are my Friends" is a great tune IMHO.

Last night I watched the Team GB Ladies footie team in action against Cameroon, the GB girls played well in patches, in fact I have to admit that I was surprised by the quality of some of the players, the second half was not as good as the first but the main thing was that the GB girls won 3-0 and will face tournament favourites Brazil next.
