Finally caught up with Spectre last night and quite enjoyed it; particularly how they made things with the villain personal and linked the plot to the prior movies.

I liked how they didn’t try to up the stakes even higher than Skyfall. I liked the Daniel Craig movies a lot, but I was glad Spectre returned to a more classic Bond style rather than trying to reinvent the franchise.

 I watched Back To The Future with my eldest sister, it was really great and funny. It had some great music in it too, especially from Huey Lewis & The News, whom I love.

 I’m going to watch the last 2 next weekend.

paul-mccartney-thumb_gif I approve.

 

I love BTTF, great series and I still watch at least the first one every month and have been doing it for about 5 years. I freaking love it, I once wrote in a Valentine’s Day card “I’m your density”….. he didn’t get it a-hard-days-night-paul-7.

 

But yes, amazing film. I amn’t that mad on the 2nd (I’m one of the weirdos who prefers the 2015 part to the Back to the 80’s part) and 3rd is a solid film. 

 

I think the last film I saw was Bridget Jones’ Baby about 2 weeks ago. (I went for Mr Darcy, I stayed for Mr Darcy….I love you Mr Darcy heart).

I saw a bunch of movies no order

Sully – Was Good. Nice to see the aftermath of events.

Bringing Up Baby – I felt Kathrine Hepburn’s character was too mean.

Now Voyager – I liked this one, I think the development of the main character was good.

Food Fight! – I can see why this film is rumored to have made Charlie Sheen go insane.

Mac and Devin go to high school – This is a movie that had no effort behind it. A meandering mess.

Pets – It was ok, it was pretty much a remake of Toy Story.

Captian America Civil War – I liked it, I think the ‘civil war’ is a bit of a misname since it’s only 12 people fighting.

I recently saw Young Frankenstein, and then I went to the theater and watched Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

(semi)Local theatre was showing The Thing, and so I went and saw it for the first time. There are few movies I would give 10/10 or describe as perfect. The Thing is one of them. Man am I glad that I saw it on the big screen.

I saw The Family Way about a week ago.  The movie would have been a lot dirtier if it was made today(which I’m glad of wasn’t), considering its plot.

Reminds me of Let It Be and how there isn’t really any obscenities or violence in it. Although they’re The Beatles and not some rapper, I still would’ve expected a fuck or shit or ass in there, but nothing. I think they might say damn or hell but I haven’t watched the film since May 8th 2000 when we had a VHS of it playing at the record shop to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the movie. I might try to watch it later today. If a group in the midst of splitting made a movie like this nowadays, there would probably be a hell of a lot more obscenities and probably some fighting as well.

Maybe you should try posting more.

Here’s a question: what was the first R movie you ever saw. For me, as far as in the theatres, my dad took me too see Alien when I was 12. My mom told him that it was too scary for me and that I would have nightmares, but I liked it and wasn’t scared at all. Around the time I was 13, my father took me with a couple of his war buddies to see Apocalypse Now, another great film.

Maybe you should try posting more.

Would have been a horror, possibly ‘A Nightmare On Elm Street Part 2’ when I was about 10 years old on video; this was in the days when you could go into a video shop aged 13 and loan out an 18 (must be 18+ to view) without anyone caring – something my brother did regularly. 

The film scared the living crap out of me; for days I was fearful that Freddie was about and therefore I wouldn’t turn the light out. Tho strangely I had no problem with going to sleep.

I saw a ton of horrors including all the ‘Elm Street’ films (up to ‘A New Nightmare’) and the ‘Child’s Play’ films before I was 13. My parents didn’t care.

I know this isn’t R, but me, my older brother, and my cousin Bill snuck into the movie theatre when we were 10, 9, and 5 respectively to see Fritz The Cat because we thought it was like Tom And Jerry. If you’re wondering, we were allowed to go out on our own since we were 4.

I have a huge list of films I’m trying to work my way through and I like to keep an IMDB list with my ratings out of 10. Here’s a few I’ve watched recently:

 

Mullholland Drive: Very strange surreal film with a plot which nobody seems to understand including me. (I feel I might rate it better when I understand it) 7/10

V for Vendetta: I liked this a lot and there was a particular line in it which I love…”Our integrity sells for so little, but it is all we really have. It is the very last inch of us, but within that inch we are free”.  8/10

It Follows: A very good horror which has some very original elements. 7/10

American History X: Very impressed with this story of a reformed neo-nazi 8/10

The Lady in the Van: Another film that really impressed me about a true life Alan Bennett story. 8/10

Django Unchained: Tarrantino films irritate me but this very good apart from a complete overload of the “n” word 7/10

Walk the Line: I’m not a big Johnny Cash fan but I liked this film a lot. 7/10

I know this isn’t movie, but I realized that The Simpsons episodes are just individual dreams with several factors pointing it out:

The first episode (sort of) is called Good Night and is about Homer getting the family to sleep, so this could be the only episode where they are awake

Almost every episode starts with the theme song, which could be what happens before they fall asleep or a recap of their day, followed by them getting on the couch to watch TV, followed by a “couch gag” which could mean that they fall to sleep while watching TV and the couch gags could be the beginning of their dream

There are lots of inconsistencies within the show that it’s stupid to mention them

There is no change whatsoever, every character is still the same age they were 25 years ago and everything is back to normal at the beginning of the next episode

The things that happen within a lot of the episodes could only be done in dreams and some of the episodes play out like dreams/nightmares (though you can link this to the Homer’s coma theory, even before his coma there were episodes that were still far out)

Maybe you should try posting more.

My latest viewing:

The Guest: I thought this film was worse than dreadful but then someone mentioned it’s meant to be a parody? So maybe I missed the plot. 1/10

The Anomaly: Another bad film with a bad plot where the Director/Star indulged himself in playing at being James Bond but failed miserably. The fight scenes are funny for all the wrong reasons. 4/10

Deadpool: I really liked this and it’s not your regular superhero movie. 7/10

Mad Max Fury Road: I was really impressed with this film and the action sequences are just incredible. 8/10

Wild: I like Reese Witherspoon but I found this one hell of a boring movie. It’s a true story about one girl’s 1400 mile trek and it took me a similar kind of endurance to watch it till the end. 5/10

The Angel’s Share: Not a bad little film centered around Glasgow and Edinburgh by Ken Loach and I even learnt a bit about Whiskey. 7/10

Hail Ceasar: If you’re a fan of how films were made in the “Studio system” days you’ll like this film which goes behind the scenes to show the chaos. The overall storyline is a little thin but the individual segments join nicely to make a quite funny film. 7/10

The Big Lebowski: Why has it taken me so long to get around to watching this? It’s a great film and I loved the complex plot. It’s like The Maltese Falcon but with a cast of hippies. 8/10

The Jungle Book: I thought this was a very impressive film with convincing use of cgi and the boy who plays  is so like the character in the cartoon version.

’71: This film took me by surprise in that it was much better than I was expecting. It features Jack O’Connell who is fast becoming my favourite actor and he plays a young squaddie who goes missing in Northern Ireland during the height of “The Troubles”.
