What Movies Are You Watching Right Now?

Recommended Posts

I watched "last vegas". Decent film, the last 15-20 minutes were pretty good.

 

A week or two ago I saw the Hobbit 2. Got bored after 30 minutes...Just too many characters that you genuinely don't remember or care. But the scenes where Bilbo becomes possessed with the huge spiders were incredible.

I watched ''Night train to Lisbon'' last night and watched it again today. It was that good. Although I don't know if many members here are into those kind of movies. Amazing photography, great cast, mesmerizing scenery, enchanting music and the adventurous element of Portuguese history. The film is mysterious, romantic, adventurous, and existential all at the same time. One of the most philosophical movies I have watched in the past years. Some very good poetry in it. A great performance by Jeremy Irons as well.

Rush.

 

10/10 - Loved it, and amazingly the accuracy was fantastic (I know there was a bit of artistic license here and there) But the actors portraying James Hunt and Niki Lauda were uncanny, the crash and the aftermath in hospital was so powerful too. Epic.

Last films watched:  

 

Blue is the Warmest Colour, the hype was spot on. Wonderful film and some pretty full-on girl-on-girl action to boot.

The World's End, thought it was maybe the best of the Blood and Ice Cream trilogy though I'll have to watch it again to confirm.

Watched Robot and Frank earlier. Really excellent performance from Frank Langella and a well-made, charming movie.

 

Also saw Her at the weekend, which was good in parts, but not as good as it could have been, or seemed to think it was.

Her is on the to-do list. Do you mean to say that it was a bit up its own arse?

Fast 5. 9/10

 

Thought it was fantastic, if a little far fetched at the end (great twist though). Dwayne Johnson was a bit wooden at the start, but improved a lot as it progressed.

Well, it is a Spike Jonze film, so that's to be expected. More that we were expected to take the relationship between Theo and Samantha as being more real or meaningful than it seems to be. There's a fundamental disconnect between Scarlett Johansson's voiceover and what's happening on screen that makes it hard to connect sometimes. Having said that, when it's good, it's very good.

I think I have watched maybe 2 Steven Seagal movies my whole life. Quite proud of that fact.

 

His films seem a bit "B" quality generally. He's like a Championship action hero, to the Premier League of Stallone, Willis and Arnie etc.

      The Avengers + Spidey would probably be the greatest Superhero movie of all time. DC might as well concede defeat.

      On Mel Gibson’s infamous comments about Jews…
      "He got drunk and said a few things, but we’ve all said those things. We’re all f-----g hypocrites. That’s what I think about it. The policeman who arrested him has never used the word n----- or that f-----g Jew? I’m being brutally honest here. It’s the hypocrisy of it that drives me crazy.

      "Mel Gibson is in a town that’s run by Jews and he said the wrong thing because he’s actually bitten the hand that I guess has fed him. But some Jewish guy in his office somewhere hasn’t turned and said, 'That f-----g kraut' or 'F--- those Germans,' whatever it is?"

      On Alec Baldwin calling a photographer a “fag”…
      "Alec calling someone an F-A-G in the street while he’s pissed off coming out of his building because they won’t leave him alone? I don’t blame him."

      can't wait for Guardians of The Galaxy, probably one would overlook this for some reasons.. but should be interesting to watch..
