At the movies


#5543

Probably my top Christmas (action) movie too.

I also like Assault on Precinct 13 as a NYE/festive season flick.

Both these movies are predominately played out over one night where it aint very festive for those involved :grinning:

I watched Life a couple of nights ago. Golly jeepers it was bad.

I get that people have to have a serious case of stupid to make thriller/monster movies work but come on. “We’re all highly trained scientists/astronauts but sure let’s have screaming matches about whether or not to follow safety protocol and then not follow safety protocol.” FMD what a waste of an hour and a half.

It’s what I liked about Sunshine. Sure some people did stupid things to keep the movie going along but they generally kept their cool and played the situation smart enough and just ■■■■ things continued to happen that were generally out of their control until there was no one left.

Denis Villeneuve is probably the most visual Director getting around at the moment. I think he has the makings of being up there with Kubrick(big call I know).

Arrival, Prisoners and Incendies are out and out classics.

I’m yet to see Blade Runner but I’m sure it wont disappoint.

Sicario > Bladerunner


#5547

Sicario is a very good film.


#5548

Brigsby Bear anyone? Awesome. So fresh and original.


#5549

Lethal weapon is probably my favourite Christmas movie, die hard is just behind


#5550

Bad Santa would be up there as my fave Christmas movie.
Also my favourite of The N/Lampoons is the Christmas one.
Randy Quaid is hilarious in that movie.


#5551

I fell asleep watching Sicario and want to watch it again now I’m such a Dennis Villeniueve super fan.


#5552

Incendies is well worth tracking down also.

Probably his best film.


#5553

Chevy chase: my brother in law who’s heart is bigger than his brain
Randy quad: aww I appreciate that Clarke


#5554

Mel Gibson is in a family comedy? Yikes. Can’t wait for Spacey to show up in a disney movie in ten years time .


#5555

The French-Canadian accents were too off-putting for me :laughing:


#5556

It could have been a silent film and I would still have been blown away.

The imagery was incredible and I have never been so devastated by a story in my life.

He’s a master.


#5557

My fav Cage movie is this…

#5558

Definitely my favourite Christmas movie.

Love the part where Randy Qauid is telling Chevy Chase how things are tight this year for Christmas and he won’t be able to afford anything for the kids, all the while whilst he filling a big trolley with bag after bag of dog food. Always cracks me up.


#5559

The blacklisting of Chevy Chase is one of the worlds greatest travesties.


#5560

or when he is emptying his sewage into the street gutter

or “save the neck for me clarke”


#5561

Allegedly one of the most difficult people in the world to work with.


#5562

The Villainess, an entertaining korean action movie.
