Review the last movie you saw thread

I used to watch a lot of movies but sport seems to have taken over again but I'm trying to find some balance again and watch more movies. I thought if we each review the last movie we saw, then we might become aware of films that would not normally appear on our radar.

I'll start off with two movies since the last film I watched was crap and I hope more positive vibes will keep his thread going, but please post reviews of bad films as well as old films because not all of us are cinema buffs.

The last film I watched was The Wackness and as I stated it was crap, the reason I rented this is because Sir Ben Kingsley plays a stoner shrink. He is good in this but not great the film is predictable it focuses on a young lonely pot dealer who befriends a popular girl as well as her step dad (Kingsley) and there is this weird friendship triangle going on as popular girl and step dad do not really get on.

The film is set in the 90's in Upper East Side Manhattan which I'm told is quite posh but these kids all talking street language hence the title. Maybe its hip I don't know anyway the main character focuses on the bad things(The Wackness) in life because he is unpopular and his family life sucks. Whereas his Friend focuses on the good things in life (The Dopeness) because she is popular and family life is okay so they make an odd couple friendship really its dross. The main character and Kingsley also make an odd couple friendship as he is looking for guidance and a friend while Kingsley is looking to recapture his youth.

I would not bother with this it had a nice ending but honestly I was happy it just ended.

The other film I watched recently was Bolt 3D which was amazing it really is such a heartwarming wee tale, with some really snappy and amusing dialogue just go see it now.
The film really is funny but watch out for Rhino as he steals every scene. I walked in with no expectations so I do not want to give too much away but honestly its the best movie I've seen in a long while.

A recent phenomenon has invaded UK cinema's where people clap at the end of a film I do not approve of this. If I go to a gig I clap to show my appreciation of the artist who is present. If I attended a premier where the actors and crew were present I would clap as a measure of respect but I do not clap an inanimate screen with names whizzing by it.

Philadelphia - really heart-warming film about a man (Tom Hanks) who was fired from his job at a major law firm for having AIDS. Denzel Washington is his attorney and takes the firm to court.. really powerful film. Great acting, really engaging cinematography, and a truly sad story. Highly recommended to anyone.

Lat film I saw was The Escapist.

British made film starring Brian Cox and I cannot speak highly enough of it. Simply outstanding. Cox brings a world weariness and desperation to what could easily have been a by the numbers prison break film. the film switches regularly between the escape attempt itself and the events that lead up to it and this is what keeps you watching as you don't have time to tire of either story.

The supporting cast of british actors do their best to raise the characters beyond mere cypher and I did find myself caring about them and their is a particularly touching scene in a disused Tube station.

The ending was one of the best things about the film as, all to often, people don't seem to know how to finish this sort of film and cop out with an ending that lets the rest of the film down (prime example of this is the otherwise very good The Nines).

Having written all of that I have just realised that I watched Get Smart with Steve Carrell more recently. It was OK and Anne Hathaway has gotten hot all of a sudden.

Stay Alive - I was eager to see it on television cause it had to do with a video game but it was so bad. The plot was all over the place, the story did not make sense at all. All in all a terrible movie only watch it if its on tv and nothing else is on.

Friday - Awesome movie. I loved everything about it. Chris Tucker is so funny in that movie its great. Highly recommend it.

Coraline in 3d.

Trippy ******* movie. I enjoyed it a lot but you might want to think twice before taking your little kids to see it. Shit is pretty messed up for a kids movie.

exactly the same for me. I took my girlfriend's 7-year-old sister to this. Then her mom, dad, aunt and cousins went too.

They weren't really impressed with my selection. I liked parts of it though.

I last watched Rock'N'Rolla...good fun film in the way that Guy Ritchie makes films. The torrent I dl'd though had choppy audio so I didn't get the whole experience.

But I would say it is his second best behind lock stock and two smoking barrels.

Beyond The Law

This. Now this is a show. Charlie Sheen at his career defining role. In 1992 this film was released (I think)

Such a good fuggen show. The acting, for 1992, was prime but when compared to today's standard's it seem's a bit lame. All the scene's invloving Sheen with the Biker's is alot of fun to watch. There's even some real life nekked boobie's you cna view.

I recommend this show if you like gun's, drug's and alot of swearing. It is worth your hour and a half to watch it.

Based on a true story so you gotta like that, right?
