Last of the Mohicans..10/10

Y’all seen this movie about a million times, I watched it twice in the last 2 days.

Watching it just gets better. It turned into my all time favorite movie.

Indians killing white people left and right before whitey cheated and used disease to kill off the brown man.

@turbotime I can see him raising a fist in the air each time a Brit is axed to the face.
Adore that film and I really need to watch it again. The story, the acting and the score are all superb.

I hope it’s as good as I remember.

Altered States - 7/10

Very trippy 80s film about hallucinations in a sensory deprivation tank. Technically it is not a bad film but it just gets a bit boring. It is very Cronenberg fly like film without the campy fun. Tonnes of dated but interesting special effects. Wouldnt have the balls recommending it to anyone tbh unless youre a freak

Mission Impossible: Fall Out 8/10

Probably my favorite MI movie as far as set pieces, only thing that lets it down is the main villain of which I still think Phillip Seymour Hoffman in MI 3 is still the best the series has ever had. Really enjoyable summer action flick with a great cast and great action. Cavill and Cruise are the standouts IMO, wish Rebecca Ferguson did more as well as I think she's the most interesting of the returning players.
 
X Men Days of Future Past.

This was one of those films that I had no real intention of ever seeing but I ended up watching it tonight. Pleasantly surprised. I never really liked the X Men outside of a couple of characters and I can't even really remember seeing the older films but this kept my interest. Time travel stories can be really easy to fuck up but they made this work. There's more weight to this than any of the Avengers films. The characters are more interesting too.

Good story and good set pieces and a good bit better than I thought it'd be.

MI 3 is one of the best action films going in my book. Haven't seen any since though so I must catch up with them.
 
Really want to see the new MI film. Not seen one since MI2 which was garbage and I was not a fan of the first one. Hoped the decent ones were going to be up on Netflix or Sky, but they ain't. Think MI 3 is so I'll try that going on what folk have said.
 
The Kissing Booth

Been watching shit romantic films with the wife, she got recommended this one. It's fairly new and fits the exact style of shite like Twilight. An OK looking girl lives a really nice life and a really stunning hot dude falls for her but he's troubled and needs her love to save him. Full of all the typical modern teen love story garbage. Not all of it is awful, the first hour drags, but is fairly funny and then you get almost another hour of the emotional stuff and damn. The carcase of Molly Ringwald appears for a bit, that's an odd sight.

3/10 I can't see it appealing to anyone on here, not even a good date movie.


 
So you didn't like Mission Impossible, hated Mission Impossible 2, but you really want to see the new Mission Impossible film? :lol:

I only saw Mission Impossible as a kid, it was not my type of film back then. I did see the follow-up years later and didn't like it and was put off from seeing the rest of the movies even though they started getting good reviews. The latest film has got really great reviews and apart from Ant-Man and The Meg nothing really appeals to me at the cinema as a bit of summer fun. The Incredibles looks great, but I'm waiting for the DVD to see with my youngest.

I want to see the new one to see what the fuss is about, I'd ideally like to see the rest before I do that but can't see it happening unless I fork out for a box set so I either do that or just go see the new one anyway and hope for the best. Not sure if its a film that you have had to have seen the previous films to get what is going on?

Yeah I get you, it just read funnily. I saw the first one, thought it was wank and have never watched any of the others as they don't appeal to me. The only films of that ilk that I like are the Bourne films.
 
Come to think of it I never saw the first Mission Impossible either. MI 2's opening scene blew my mind as a kid with Cruise free climbing that mountain. I remember being excited as fuck to see it as somehow whatever TV package we had fucked up and got the Sky box office movie channels too.

First Reformed 8/10

Love Paul Schrader. Its a hard film to describe - a lot of profound dialogue, symbolism, philosophies, reasoning. The film follows a tortured cancer ridden Reverend Ethan Hawke through a tough period of his life. Strong resemblance to a travis bickle type character. I found the film quite affecting until the final scene. A lot of despair, its not a film for everyone but I rate it highly. Ethan Hawke is low key one of the best actors getting around

Been hearing good things about First Reformed too, I need to check it out.

Paul Schrader... good director, great writer. But what's up with him and Nic Cage in films, are they best buds or something?
 
The Ugly Truth

Gerrard Butler is a new TV personality helping folks with their love life, mainly saying manly stuff that turns out to be right. Katherine Heigl is his producer. It's a chick flick love story thing, but Butler is exactly how I imagine @mandela to be so is watchable in most things. The story is fairly empty, but it is funny making it a tolerable film to watch with a lady. Not much else to say.

6/10 It would have been nice to see a bit more of Heigl



Sweet Home Alabama

I had hoped this was about the CHB poster, alas it was another chick flick. This time without the humour. Reece Witherspoon wants to marry rich politician type guy Patrick Dempsey but is already married to southern dude Josh Lucas. Candice Bergan is annoying as fuck, but Fred Ward is damn great just because he exists. Suff happens, not much interesting or believable. Witherspoon is an intensely unlikeable character in this which seems to be the trait of these movies. A horrible self-centred cunt of a woman wants a star-crossed lover of epic proportions that is also a great human being. Dempsey and Lucas save the film from being awful. by just being nice. Rhona Mitra appears to show you just how stunning she is.

5/10 watching it is not a complete loss, kinda like WWI for the French. Winning, but was it really worth the cost?

 
Say Anything

I had not heard of this movie for some reason, its the one with John Cusack stood with a boombox above his head. Iona Skye is the lady of his affection, she looks scary now, check her out. John Maloney is her father and a lot of the film plays around him. Its a film about family. Think of the new Star Wars, but without the naff bits. Cusack is great, he's kickboxer living in his sisters flat, his actual sisters flat too which is always odd. Not much happens. The guy is great, but the woman is a cunt that the guy chases after for no apparent reason apart from her being the most amazing person on the planet. Yep that old story. Typical 80s fair and carries its style as a badge of honour. Compared to modern teen movies it is Oscar worthy.

6/10 Watch it if you have not seen it, but have seen Ferris Bueller, Breakfast Club and all that stuff. It'll tickle your fancy.

 
A few weeks ago the wife and I went to see "Leave No Trace" at the local multiplex cinema. Let me preface this by saying, I really don't like going to cinemas any more, and this last experience only seemed to validate my dislike for going to them. There were only 2 people taking money for tickets and one of them was exclusively for "Express Pass" card holders while the general public line was long, but made up for it by being very slow too.

The system set up for buying tickets through the machine set up outside the theater was, and has been, broken for a few months according to my wife, who likes going to movies.

It didn't get any better once inside with the line snaking through the lobby for the concession counter being a good 50 people deep------with 2 teenage girls behind the counter to help them. Needless to say, concessions were not on the agenda with that line and more slow service.

As for the movie, it was paced about as fast as the service we received to sit in the seats to watch it. I won't go into any real detail other than to say it revolves around a single dad, suffering from PTSD who, along with his young teenage daughter are living in a National Park, which is against the law by the way. They get discovered and are taken in by authorities and are "helped" by same to get them into a more stable environment. They comply, then rebel against the system a few times during the course of the movie and in the end, a life changing decision is made.

Yeah, not exactly action packed, but at least there's no use of CGI to make you think people can really fly while kicking people with karate type moves all the while slicing off heads with their samurai swords.
