Watched an old classic with some mates on Monday night. We were in stitches laughing, not as funny watching it now, as it was back in the day, but still brilliant. You have to love stupid humour to appreciate it, so let yourself go and enjoy it for what it is....A Classic

 

I give you...

Winter's Bone   Tough drama set in really small town USA (Ozark Mountains).   Really impressed at the performances in this - a few Oscar nominations at the time.   7.5/10

Mandy.

Was looking forward to it after a good review on here. It was awful IMO. Truly 2 hours wasted.

 

Completely disagree...Mandy is the epitome of a cult classic in my opinion.

 

Some people will hate it, whilst others like myself will think it’s a stunning piece of art...the cinematography and imagery are like a moving painting in places.

 

I knew I was going to enjoy it from the moment the old school titles came up and King Crimson ‘Starless’ played.

In the past month:

 

Bohemian Rhapsody  - biggest pile of horse shit I have ever seen.  Was annoyed throughout by the lack of story (it was just bringing Queen events into play every so often) especially the guy who played Freddie.  He tried too hard and his face really annoyed me, as did Roger in it.  Watch the many hundreds of bona fide Queen docus out there – the real Queen and save yourself from this drivel.

 

Goodfellas – Not seen it in about 20 years, nostalgia makes me like it but in reality it is actually a pretty shite film imo.  So overrated.

 

Instant Family – Quite funny.  Wahlberg plays this type of character very well.  A good family film about something close to my heart.

Goodfellas is shite :bolt:

 

 

 

Thought Rami Malek put in a fantastic performance as Freddie too.

For me he over acted and tried too hard.  I guess it comes down to no-one will ever be Freddie so seeing someone impersonate him for 2 hours just irritated me.  They tried to cram significant Queen events into a film almost gratuitously. 

 

Goodfellows really actually is.  Poor storyline that stays strong by just overhype.  Used to like it but watched it recently and realised it is actually a bit shite.

There are plenty films and tv shows I’ve watched back years later that I’ve thought were really great. Watching them back years later though, I’ve  had a completely different opinion on some and actually thought they were shite, but that’s definitely not one of them.

Goodfellows? You mean Goodfellas

 

Fantastic film. I like film editing and that movie is edited fantastically. The way the music goes with the film is incredible and spot on. Scorcese is a genius at times

 

BR pulled the wool over my eyes, I will admit that. Perhaps it was the music and the upbeat tone, a rare thing these days but yes he does overact and actually plays Freddie Mercury as if he was a total oddball, obviously not the case

Yeah, obviously I do.

 

Soundtrack is good, especially because it plays a George Harrison track which is always nice.

 

The BR hype leaves me incredulous.  I genuinely believe people are just telling themselves they liked it due to the fact it is Queen.  When it came out people were competing to see who liked it more as if a case of keeping up with the Joneses.  It is social media I tell you, hyped it up and the humanbots just nod acceptingly.

 

I know I am a miserable ******* but the film was diabolically bad.  It was a complete cringefest from them clapping to we will rock you in the studio, to Freddie talking about Live Aid (pre concert) to them sitting in the studio with the record exec.

If I was to rate Bohemian Rhapsody out of a trillion I’d give it 5.

Ye I'd hated it too. 'i always liked queen' I heard tons

 

Especially younger people. Bet they didn't bother with queen's last album, I compare it in a way to Dunkirk. Dunkirk's better but people went mad for it just due to the camera angles and sound, that could have been better too

Yup, all the sheep would have left the cinema and went right on to spotify.  Can't wait to go through it all again with 'Rocket Man'

The Danish Girl should be eternally grateful for Bohemian Rhapsody as until the moment BR came out the Danish Girl was the biggest pile of cimematic excrement there has ever been (imo).  It is now the second.

I constantly go on about the sheep culture...oh, this movie is amazing’, oh yes, isn’t it just fantastic, when it’s just a totally bang average movie experience. It’s also the same with things like restaurants...oh, this restaurant is to die for, oh yes, it’s my favourite, just fabulous...nauseating stuff at times, etc. I feel that way about movies like Trainspotting and Reservoir Dogs, two seriously overrated films imo. I’m not a big Queen fan and never have been, but i do like some of their music. I might not have enjoyed the film as much, if it hadn’t been for the soundtrack, but as a whole, I enjoyed it. I was impressed with the portrayal of Freddie by Rami, as I think Freddie was a bit of a quirky extrovert type character.

Excuse me? Reservoir Dogs is brilliant, as is most of Tarantinos work. Pulp Fiction however, now there is an overrated film. Watched it once, have no intention to do so again although some clips do get the YouTube treatment now and then. 

 

Agree pretty much word for word with your summary of Bohemian Rhapsody though for whatever that's worth

Tarantino's ridiculously over rated for me, he goes out of his way to shock and to show how clever he is but his dialogue's generally awful and unnatural, and his story lines are very one dimensional. Irvine Welsh is the same, popular beyond his abilities IMO.

THIS in spades. I will however give the exception of Pulp Fiction which I think is a really good film. As for Irvine Welsh, since when was "Aye, ah ken ya radg" and "I glessed the *****" literature?

I8's film critiquing is a bit like his Hearts analysis.

 

Good fellas is an amazing film and stands the test of time perfectly.

 

I agree about Malik. I didn't like his performance and thought the guy who played Brian May was way better than him.

 

Anyway I digress. Watched Stan and Ollie yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. 7/10 and the acting by both leads was superp IMO.

Alita Battle Angel. Don't know what to make of it, visually very good but the story was a bit all over the place and it was a poor ending. 7/10.

I put it on a couple of weeks ago and turned it off. Loved back in the 90s. Now, well...

The Changeling (1980)

 

8/10

 

Not seen this one in years, still freaks me out though.

 

Really good psychological horror, that’s aged pretty well.

The Dirt. 10/10. If you’re a Motley fan you’ll love it. By way of contrast Rise of the Krays. Right up there with the very worst films Ive ever seen. Terrible

Just a heads up that Under The Skin is on Film 4 tonight at 11.25pm.

 

While it does have some competition, even with Scarlett Johansson naked at various times it's the worst film I've ever seen.

 

0/10

Get Out. Watched this on Netflix as I was thinking of going to see Us tomorrow. Another good watch which has encouraged me to go to see Us. 7/10

Don't be fooled. Us was average at best. A great build up but a disappointing finale.

Still go and see it. It has some great moments. I just felt let down with the 2nd half. 

I do like the films Jordan peele is doing though. A different take on the horror genre.

The book is brilliant. Would recommend. One of the most honest books about a rock band I've ever read

Not a huge fan of horror but Get Out felt like a Hitchcock movie. Will give Us a go (might be Monday before I get to see it) as i liked the way Get Out was done.

Dragged over Concrete. Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn play two suspended cops that receive a tip off about a heist and decide to take it down themselves. Great understated performances from Gibson and Vaughn 9/10

Watched Clint Eastwood in The Mule last night. It’s a slow film that never picks up the pace, but it does have some funny moments. I thought it was alright, nothing really great about it. 

7/10

Was between this, Laurel and Hardy and the film above last night. Sounds like I might have made the wrong choice.

Its more dialogue driven rather than all out action and has a quirky feel to it .Directed by the same guy that did Bone Tomahawk

Plan to watch this tonight. Was between that and the Mule but reviews above would suggest this is the one to go with.
