The Official JKB What Was The Last Film You Watched...

Recommended Posts

Carl Fredrickson

Blinded By The Light. I will confess that I am a huge Springsteen fan and will watch anything relating to him or his songs. 

 

This film is inspired Sarfraz Manzoors upbringing in the UK in the 80s. For those of us who lived through those times it will bring back memories of the culture of the time - both good and bad. 

 

I thought the film highlighted a lot of issues of the time but some of the use of songs were very cheesy. Other times, the songs were very moving. 

 

Mixed feelings about it so only 6/10

Fantastic Beasts 2.

 

Pretty woeful, in all honesty. Couldn't much tell you exactly what happens and the ending is just horrendous.

 

3/10.

I thought the ranch scene was excellent. Brad Pitt,Margot Robbie, Timothy olyphant and Emile hirsch all were superb. 

I thought dicaprio by and large was poor. He bored me.

The ranch scene was excellent - BP has grown on me as an actor and I really liked him in this. Margot Robbie I am not too familiar with but agree that she was excellent. LDC I thought was excellent too as he was playing an actor on a downward spiral. His scene with the young female actor (not actress) and his scene in his trailer after he fluffed his lines were great. Add to that his part in the end scenes.... Might not be his best work but felt he played the role really well - IMO

Once Upon A Time .....

 

Last night. Like waiting 2 hours for a bus to come along. Get on the bus to find it full of drugs, booze and loud music only for the bus to reach its last stop after you just got on!!

Baby Driver on Netflix.

 

Rotten.  Really, really bad.  Stopped it about 45 - 60 minutes in.  (if that).

Horses for courses mate!

 

I just found it not very good.  Spacey was decent in the bits I saw, but I found it all a bit contrived, trying to ape a Tarantino style kinda thing going on, and it just didn't work for me.

 

The bit in the cafe, chatting up the waitress, just killed it off.

Not sure how much you seen but it gets quite action packed in the latter stages. I liked the music too.

 

It was certainly a better Tarantino film than Tarantinos latest.

Just out of OUATIH and unfortunately have to agree with the criticisms on here. Apart from the Ranch scene and that fantastic wee burst at the end, nothing happens in an almost 3 hour long movie.

There's some good stuff, Christopher Waltz was good as always, and the film has some interesting moments and scenes. But I felt there was too much going and it wasn't as good as it could have been

It's John Wick - the third one.

 

Like the first 2 but with horses.

 

Great mindless action film made by mental stuntmen.

Extra point for Harrison Ford.

 

Blatant cash grab.  The movie, not Harrison Ford.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sure he got a wedge for 3 days work though.

Glad to hear it was similar to the first two

 

John Wick is basically Drive 10 years later with a different name. But who cares, Drive was a very good film visually. They could make any film like Drive to be honest and probably should

 It's quite simply:  If you liked the first 2, this is for you.

 

I loved them all.

 

Stuntmen making movies - what's not to love?

 It is what it is.

 

Flat out daft action.

 

It doesn't pretend to be anything else.  I loved all 3.

 

What makes it different is that it is 100% made by stuntmen and Keanu done loads of the stunts himself.

It's all real stunts.

Really good thriller. Kept me intrigued the whole time and the two main stars have good futures, in fact everyone puts in a good shift. If you're into thrillers/ at times horror then give it a shot

The Frenchman Returns

Inna de Yard

 

9/10

 

Was fortunate enough to get free tickets for a preview showing of this earlier today. It won't be everyone's cup of tea but if you love Jamaica and reggae then you will enjoy it. It's a documentary capturing a remarkable group of reggae legends (including Ken Boothe, Winston McAnuff, Kiddus I, Cedric Myton and Judy Mowatt) as they gather to record an album of hits in an unplugged style that harks back to their roots.

Agree

 

Not surprised there are different opinions. It's unusual. But I thought it was a really positive film. Final story included. Margot Robbie is very good and surprised there was criticism of her portrayal. Different. No way is Tarantino just doing one more film.

The Best Of Enemies

 

1971: at Durham, in North CarolinaAnn Atwater tries to get better housing conditions for poor black people, and is ignored by the all white judge panel. C.P. is the president of the KKK... don’t want to tell you anymore about it😉

 

 

Good film, starring one of the women from the Hidden Figures movie 

 

 

7.5/10

Saw Terminator 1 & 2 at the Odeon on Thursday. Havent seen them before and really enjoyed them. Effects a bit dated but decent enough story and acting. 

 

IT double bill on Thursday. 321 minutes - I am tempted but would struggle to get up for work on Friday

Red Joan...

 

Joan Stanley is a widow living out a quiet retirement in the suburbs when, shockingly, the British Secret Service places her under arrest.

 

 

Starring Judi Dench and a hot Sophie Cookson.

Yup, bang on. I think I put something similar on here for that too. It really is a truly awful film.

My first time seeing Terminator was at the cameo about 5/6 years ago, my feelings were pretty similar to yours. Love watching films from yesteryear in a cinema rather than digging out a DVD

Once upon time in Hollywood. ****ing awful.

 

The absence of any real story is a major issue. I was waiting for something to happen, the end of the film was just a bit shit as well.
