Movies I Want To See


Recommended Posts

I watched The Abyss yesterday, it had it's moments but the ending was a bit corny.

On a personal ranking scale I'd give it 7/10 as opposed to nines for Avatar and Alien.

I suppose it shows that we all like different things in a movie or TV shows.

I'm currently in mourning after watching the last episode of Auf Wiedersehen Pet.

Jimmy Nail is an amazing comic talent, I have his Spender series to watch later.

I am glad you took the time to watch it ...thanks..

Anyone who has read the Jack Reacher books by Lee Child will have a great deal of difficulty seeing Tom Cruise in the role. There's about half a meter height difference to start with.

A little taste of Ireland that I found in Tops today, a former member who still lurks under other names may be interested...

I don't have a wish list. I just search for new stuff on the torrents and download whatever grabs my interest. I admire your effort to broaden the scope of topics on the forum, however. I wish mo

TV series Ray Donovon

From IMDB: Ray Donovan, a professional "fixer" for the rich and famous in LA, can make anyone's

problems disappear except those created by his own family.

A really good first series. For me, one of the finds of the year.

Do yourself a favour and have a look.

I watched American Gangster yesterday, a remarkable film.

Yes, a fantastic movie with strong performances by Russell Crowe and

Denzel Washington.

In the extra's on the dvd, was interesting to note that the 2 main characters

Frank Lucas and Ritchie Roberts because quite close.

The Family

Robert De Niro

Michelle Pfeiffer

Tommy Lee Jones

In The Family, a mafia boss & his family are relocated to France under the witness protection program after snitching on the mob.Michelle Pfeiffer's performance is the reason to see the film.

Luc Besson (Director)has built a career on stylish and thrilling action films, and "The Family" is a mess compared to such earlier efforts as "Le Femme Nikita" and "Léon: The Professional." But for what it is, it works, while reminding us and again to not take it too seriously.

I did recommend reading the book based off of the movie, before your see the movie. It will make a whole lot more sense. Like how the big guy recovered from the pretty nasty head injury, makes the drop on the special forces guy and then he asks about the angel he saw. :)

Edit: typos

Just watched "After Earth", Will Smith's father/son vehicle. A bit average, I watched it right through but the other half fell asleep.

Agree 100 percent, although I did make it to the end.
I reckon they could have done more with the story. Too many gaps.

I thought Will Smith's part was too different to his previous work, I actually checked the cover to make sure it was him.

In what was a movie marathon for me I watched a second one last night, Iron Man which was much more entertaining.

Jeff Bridges exceptional as usual.

Watch out for Crazy Heart if you haven't seen it.

OK, movies... what are we watching?

I'm looking for some reccomendations.

saw some clips of a new movie dont know if its released but its sure to stir up the feelings between the brits and the japs.

its called "the railway man" staring colin frith and nicol kidman about the building of the burma-thai.railway and the treatment that the japs inflicted on the workers.

i know a little bit about it as my mother's brother worked on it.

i dont think there is any forgiveness between the 2sides,i went to visit the cemetary at kanchanaburi and saw a few japs smirking at some of the grave's i had to walk away.
