A film discussion thread, for anyone to join in.

The idea is that you put down a film you've just seen (on TV, DVD, cinema, or elsewhere) and say if you liked it or not.

I'll start with what I saw at the Cinema last night:

A Night At The Museum 6/10

Reasonably fun Christmas flick, but with a jaw-dropping lack of imagination all round. The film is saved by Alan Silvestri's heart-warming, old-fashioned score (but nothing can save Ricky Gervais, who is appalling).

The last film I saw was Casino Royale.

It's the first Bond film I've ever seen at the cinema, and I absolutely loved it.I felt that Bond had finally grown up, and will be able to compete with some of the other action films that we see.

Hopefully we're going to see the new Will Smith film this weekend ( The Pursuit of Happyness), so I'll let you know what I think of it.

I saw Casino Royale about 2 months ago and thought it was great - although my girlfriend hated it! Ah well.

Casino Royal
Sad eurgh - pass me the bucket, where were all the gadgets - Bond isn't meant to get all sentimental and gooey!
Didn't help that I had no idea what was going on from beginninig ot end... but at least we had Daniel Craig to look at.... Wink

Didn't like it much at all though in general

Last film I saw was Cold Mountain. Having read the book a few years ago I didn't hold out much hope that the film would be any good - however, I loved it. Thought it was really excellent and that everyone gave amazing performances. It kept very close to the original book and had me weeping buckets at the end. I would definitely watch it again.

Don't bother with the cinema much as I'd rather wait until the DVD is released and enjoy it at home.

Last decent/recent release I saw was "A Very Long Engagement", with Audrey Tautou. In French (Julia, you could watch it without the English subtitles! Very Happy ), but that's the whole point. Funny, serious, poignant, sad and ironic almost at the same time, liberally sprinkled with the magic only Jean-Pierre Jeunet seems able to bring to a film (alright, forget "Alien Resurrection", but think of "Delicatessen" and "The City of Lost Children") - plus a surprising yet charming cameo from Jodie Foster....

Wouldn't mind seeing "Children of Men" soon, but I think I'll wait until the DVD comes down in price.

I started watching A Very Long Engagement ... but got so bored I went and chose a different film instead 'Le Boucher' - was much better (the bucher)

I think I got the Delicatessent for Xmas - if it's a french one...

Has anyone seen 'The Chorus' or 'Goodbye Lenin' - I've seen the Chorus so many times I'm (embarrassingly) word perfect, in the songs at least! Shocked

Yes, The Chorus is excellent. We showed it the Film Society, who don't normally take to foreign-language films, and we got a big audience and everyone loved it.

I liked A Very Long Engagement, though I thought it was too long. Not up there with Amelie and Delicatessen, for me.

If you refer to the last film at a cinema - it was Shaun of the Dead, about 3 years ago? The time before that was Mary Poppins with my son who was then 5, he's 28 now! As you can tell I don't 'do' cinema very often.

Last film in the cinema was either "Dog Soldiers" or "28 Days Later".... so that's a while ago. Talking of the latter, "28 Weeks Later" is due out in May, so that might be my annual cinema pilgramage, or maybe not, since it's a sequel and I have to go right back to "Aliens" for the last sequel that was any good.

Casino Royal, then before that a rubbish french 'flic' -cop - film called 36 or something - it was terrible - I had wanted to go see something else, forgotten what, but my friend was late and wouldn't walk faster so we could get to the cinema on time! Grr!
Usually only go to the cinema aprox once a year or even less - I don't find it very interesting and usually feel dizzy or sick afterwards! ... or worse still a combination of both!

The last film I went to was "The Last King of Scotland" - thought it was excellent but hubby thought it was rather gruesome. Would be interested to hear the views of others who have seen it.

'Mel Gibson's 'Apocolypto' is set days before the invasion of the first Conquistadors, telling the story of a tribe of Indians living an idyllic life in a small village who are attacked by a neighbouring tribe who ravage their people and take the surviving adults to a massive and spectacular city of stone, to be sold as slaves and sacrificed to appease their gods - who they believe are “punishing” them, through sickness, pestilence, drought and a myriad of other issues in what is to become the final days of the mighty Mayan empire.

Following Jaguar Paw <a hunter and one of the captives set to be sacrificed> the film deals with his escape from his captors and his journey home to rescue his pregnant wife and young son from a small cave where he had hidden them moments before his own capture.
Unfortunately for JP, he has a determined and blood thirsty war party hot on his tail - tooled up and hungry for blood - so he knows that he has to put his fear aside and begin thinking like a hunter'

Within the film, Gibson gives audiences an insight into what 'might' have happened in the final days of the Mayan empire - I say 'might' because many critics have complained about it's historical accuracy - I know myself <and I ain't no historian> that there are historical inaccuracies, but they don't impinge on the enjoyment of the film - unless you happen to be a Mercedes De La Garza devotee. Adding to the authentic feel of the film, the dialogue is all non-English and spoken in the traditional Yucatec dialect. You'll find the subtitles are very easy to read and you'll be so drawn in by the characters and the story that you'll soon forget you're reading them.

The plot is coherent, riveting and fast moving with the tension built high early on and never lets up - but and it's a big 'but' - Apocolypto is a gory film.
Put it this way - if you’ve seen Scarface, think about the shower scene in the motel coupled with the flagellation of Passion of the Christ and a touch of Sam Peckinpah and you'll have an idea of the bloodshed and heinous bodily crimes inflicted on it's characters.
Problem is, you can only be shocked and grossed out so many times before you become desensitized. It’s one thing to watch grizzly battle scenes and deal with them, it’s quite another thing entirely to watch people eviscerated, decapitated and literally have their faces chewed off by animals. So I should warn anyone who intends to see it - before, during or after - don't eat.

All things considered Apocolypto is not a film to be forgotten in a hurry and I also think <for what it's worth> it will recieve the odd gong here and there when 'pat on the back' time comes around - if for nothing else - Dean Semler's stunning cinematography.

9/10

I saw both these films at the weekend:

Last King of Scotland 8/10
I too thought it was excellent, with fine performances and an excellent period recreation. The portrayal of Idi Amin was well-rounded, and as someone who wasn't around at the time, I feel I've learnt a lot about that time in history.

But, yes, the last 20 minutes were a bit too gruesome. I supposed it needed to be seen but perhaps an alternative way could have been found.

Apocolypto 7/10
A decent, exciting, chase movie. But somewhat predictable, and I don't think I've learnt anything. Some of it seemed obviously historically inaccurate (especially the contention that the Mayans destroyed themselves - it certainly wasn't those good Catholic Europeans, oh no sirree) so I can only really judge as an action film.

Some scenes were filmed in Cornwall but I didn't spot them!

I watched "V for Vendetta" on DVD over the weekend.

I enjoyed the story, although it seemed a bit like 1984. I will watch it again before making further comment.

Has anyone seen "Babel"? The reviews seem to have been very mixed. Confused Have seen "Notes on a Scandal" - brilliant acting!

My girlfriend saw Happy Feet. She reckons it's one of the most bizarre films she's ever seen. Didn't think it was too bad, though.

Recently I've seen:

Babel 3/10
Truly terrible film, made all the worse by the fact it clearly thinks it's a major, worthy, work of art. To be fair, half the storylines are engrossing and moving but as a whole it is a string of depressing acts happening to poorly-realised stereotypes. It goes on and on without ever making a real point, and Brad Pitt is as rubbish as ever.

Notes On A Scandal 8/10
A slight story, but well-done and with some very fine acting.

Hot Fuzz 9/10
Really really funny, full of likable actors. Sadly, the action at the end is too long and OTT, leaving you a little disappointed at the end. But the first hour or so is a wonderfully inventive tight comedy.

Just watched it after downloading it last night. Hmmm. A tad predictable and a little bit hollow, would have felt a bit cheated if I'd have shelled out for the DVD. Too comic-book for me - although given its origins that's not really surprising. Have deleted it from the HD already.

Watched "Children of Men" the other night. Not bad - a very depressing film to watch, to me the director seems to have just managed to capture the hopelessness that the country was feeling given there was no future. It seemed to be much more 'real' and closer to the truth than "V" was for portraying what was effectively a dictatorship. Clive Owen seemed to get his teeth into the part - an ordinary bloke thrust into the middle of extraordinary events. Of course, Nat'll come along now and give a proper critic's view of the fillum.... Smile

What's on the horizon? Ah yes, "28 Weeks Later". Since it's got Americans in it, it won't be a patch on the original....

Saw Chocolat on BBC2 the other night. Excellent movie. The devine J Depp very nice to look at too .... Embarassed Have read the book which was a much "darker" story than the movie. I would definitely watch it again if it comes back on tv. Loved it.

Oooh, I loved the original except they got the direction wrong of the motorway through Manchester, and the motorway junction doesn't really exist. This shouldn't bug me, but it does!

I also think Children of Men is excellent, and better than V. I enjoyed V but thought it was quite slow. I'm told the film is more comic book-y than the comic book.

My last trip t'pictures was for "Casino Royale"

I'm not a Bond fan but what a superb film... glad I saw it on the big screen.

Oh, and Mrs PJ thinks Mr D. Craig's "Got lovely blue eyes!"

Thought she was going to faint when he appeared in the little shorts!!! Laughing

Oh what a shame Julia!! However, all is not lost. Get a copy of the book by Joanne Harris from the library and enjoy ... as I said, the book is a much "darker" story than the movie but once the movie comes round again you will enjoy it even more than the book. Strange but true. Smile

Took my son to see Perfume earlier in the year. We'd both read and enjoyed the book. I was doubtful of the transition from page to screen but it worked, I was not disappointed. Although I was a bit embarrassed when the orgy scene came on as I was with my son. There was a lot of twitching and giggling around the cinema during that bit. Very well done though.

The last film I watched at home was Holiday Inn with Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire...

I really enjoyed 'Up' at the pictures, though I was sorry for Karl when his wife lost the baby and when she died early on.

On TV recently I also enjoyed 'Starter For Ten' - James McEvoy as the university student reminded me of my own years at Leeds Metropolitan University, and I'm glad he ended up with the dark-haired girl who went to demonstrations rather than Alice Eve's airhead character!

Mark Gatiss as Bamber Gascoigne when his team finally got on to University Challenge was brilliant!

New Moon - 2

This may be alright for teenage girls, but I found it boring. Bella's friend Jake resembled Melinda Messenger when he had long hair. Mark Kermode describing the 'muscular boys' who became werewolves had me think of the Herman's Hermits misheard lyric 'She's a muscular boy...'

And was I the only one who thought of the 'Frying Tonight!' line from Carry On Screaming when Michael Sheen brought Edward to be sacrificed?

Saw "Moon" with Sam Rockwell the other night. Funnily enough, I managed to predict what was going to happen about halfway through, yet it didn't spoil my enjoyment. A bit slow to get started, but if you're into reasonably intelligent SF then it might be your thing.

"Law Abiding Citizen" wasn't as bad as I feared. I managed to stay with it until the end, even though I don't think Jamie Fox can act. Story line was a bit over cooked but still proved entertaining.

If you haven't seen the latest "Star Trek" film, do so - a complete reboot of the original series, arguably a ST movie for people who don't like ST. I thought the addition of Simon Pegg might spoil it but I was wrong.

We went to see 'Nowhere Boy' today. As most people know it is the story of John Lennon's early days. We both thought it was an extremely good film and one that I would quite happily watch again. My hubby is well read on the The Beatles and he thought it was well done, told straight without trying to sensationalise or embellish the truth. It made me cry a couple of times, as it did others who were sobbing a lot louder than me.
My mum always says if you cry, it is a good film!

I've seen Nowhere Boy, finally. I was actually sorry for Julia (played by Anne-Marie Duff). In the film she came across as more of a big sister than a mother to John.

Aunt Mimi's wallpaper in her bedroom, with the Chinese men and rickshaws on, was just like my auntie's!

In 'Children of Men' ,was it the actor who plays Jamesie Cotter on Rab. C. Nesbitt in the Arab costume?

I also knew him from the 'Irn Bru' ads - I kept thinking of him going 'Cuhhhh-koo!'
