What was the last film you saw II

Talk about it here.

Saw II

Only kidding.

Saw II was rubbish though. I didn't mind Saw.

Oh, I do have a film... well, a bit of one.

Film4 is now showing


Doris Day (I'm a fan!) is in some kind of comedy with seeming Bond spoofy bits in it. Richard Harris is in it too.

But it's been all over the shop, with a disconcerting audio mix, in parts. Some attempts at tricksy camerawork that have proven to be wobbly. Some really weird timing of shots and edits.

I have given up on it.

Sunset Song. Lovely to look at, grim to watch.

I have given up on it.

How could you not stick with a film which features waterproof hairspray?!

I agree Caprice is a silly confection, but I still quite enjoyed it - in spite of Richard Harris, who never did much for me as an actor.

Sunset Song. Lovely to look at, grim to watch.

I guess that makes it a step up from the book (unless it's a pretty folio edition) which is grim to read.

I watched Age of Ultron last. Decent action film, but not as engaging as Avengers Assemble and a fundamental plot point resolved around ego overcoming intelligence in a super-intelligent guy (plausible) but also him convincing another super-intelligent with a highly-cautious personality to help him (implausible). They pretty much had guy #2 go "sounds dubious, but oh well, ok then".

the last hunger games one. overall, i was impressed with them, although i'm not sure they lived up to the aims of the books. i doubt there's scope for further films without destroying the point

Frozen. And before that Minions. And before that Curious George 2. And before that Frozen.

Every day, I thank the Lord that my girls are now too old for Frozen.

Anyway, The Drop, James Gandolfini's last movie. He, Tom Hardy and Noomi whatserface were veh good I thought. However (grumpy old man alert ) I wish these young actors these days would ENUNCIATE PROPERLY.

Frozen's not too bad. Minions has lots of 60s music in, which is great for us as we're late parents, but not for the 20 and 30 something parents who would be the majority. Blame baby boomer producers.

Ant Man

The best Marvel film since Guardians of the Galaxy. Great fun.

Bleu11 - 10 Dec 2015 16:52:29 (#15 of 11976)

Clouds of Sils Maria - This is a story about one woman (or five women, three of whom are 'real'.) The lovely Juliette Binoche (who often looks unlovely) does American accent(!) as a well-regarded middle aged film star-diva who reluctantly agrees to perform in a play about a May-December lesbian romance and power struggle that put her on the map when she was a teen. This time she has to play the part of the older boss and a significant part of the film is similar to the riveting parts of the Venus in Fur with Binoche preparing for (or rather, coming to terms with) the part of the older woman with her young PA (Kristen Stewart - I haven't seen her much but her performance here is very good) standing in for the teen. The third woman is a Lindsey Lohan-ish teen star played with pizazz by Chloe Grace Moretz (who is introduced via amusing youtube clips!)

Highly recommended.

I like frozen.

HouseOfLametta - 10 Dec 2015 17:09:54 (#17 of 11976)

Let it go.

thisonehasalittlehat - 10 Dec 2015 17:11:20 (#18 of 11976)

I can't wait until frozen 2.

Bon Voyage Charlie Brown And Don't Come Back.

I liked The Drop too. Atmospheric.
