The Last Film You Saw - 2015

Recommended Posts

Recently we watched Turbo, which was okay, not brilliant but nice to have seen it, and we re-watched Despicable Me, which was really good.

I recently saw and enjoyed The Martian.

I agree, we really didn't like Turbo too much either.

 

I watched Tinker Bell and the Pirate Princess :smile:

Watched It Follows on Tuesday night. Loved the premise, loved the cinematography, but it all felt a bit pointless. Felt like it had been made with some very specific symbolism in mind and that got a bit lost in translation.

When we watched Despicable Me, our dog Pamuk responded when she heard a minion talk. She tilted her head and looked all cute!

I saw Kingsman.  it was hilarious in a few places (Colin Firth going berzerk in the church) but I didn't like that everything was always resolved by violence, and the general message that chaviness was clever and cool.

 

Also saw Appaloosa which was a thoughtful western.

We rewatched Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. It was great to see it again. Originally, my boyfriend was going to watch the film on his own, but I could hardly tear my eyes of the screen, and that's saying something.

^ I nearly watched that last night.  Instead I watched Superman Returns, which wasn't as bad as I remembered it being. 

 

I think Henry Cavill makes a better Superman than Brandon Routh, however.

^^ That's because Brandon Routh was always destined to play The Atom instead.

^ I personally think they picked him because he looked like Christopher Reeves.

I watched Raise the Red Lantern, directed by Zhang Yimou. It's about a girl who accepts marrying a wealthy man, but is unable to cope with the stresses raised by the traditions in the ancient household. There are four wives who compete everyday for their husband's affections and the luxuries that follow. It's a good film.

Have you seen Farewell My Concubine?

No, I haven't. Do you think I should?

It's beautiful, but I was just going on what you said about the movie above.  It was nominated for Foreign Language Film for the Oscars awhile ago.

Yep, and he's better as The Atom.

Galaxy Quest

 

Very funny.  I'm wondering how they are going to make this work as a TV series, it won't be the same without Alan Rickman, by Grabthar's Hammer!

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

 

James Franco can't act, can he? He was wooden in the Spider-man films and he's pretty wooden in this as well. 

 

Otherwise pretty good. 

 

(except I don't like seeing a nasty David Hewlett, all I end up thinking is "why is McKay being so mean?").

I can totally relate to this :giggle2:. I loved his work in Stargate: Atlantis and SG-1.

My partner and I recently went and saw "The Last Witchslayer". I personally loved it, I thought that Vin Diesel was great in it. My partner disagreed with me though, he thought Vin Diesel was very wooden.

 

A very different story line though, was a nice change.
