The Last Film You Saw - 2021

Recommended Posts

This topic is for posting about any films you have recently watched.

P.S. No spoilers in this thread except in spoiler tags (like in the bookish threads).

 

And I'm kind of a bore because I haven't seen a film in some time. It is difficult for me to concentrate for that long a time, and films are only getting longer these days (in comparison to the 20th century when a lot of films were about 1h 30 mins). I struggle with much shorter times than that. Anyway.. feel free to post about any films you've seen or a film you plan to see etc.

 

These films I saw in 2020:

 

Johnny English Strikes Again

Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Ready Player One (re-watch)

Spider-Man: Far From Home

Beverly Hills Cop
Beverly Hills Cop II

Beverly Hills Cop III

Airplane

Ocean's 8

The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya (re-watch)

Iron Sky: The Coming Race

Dirty Dancing (re-watch)

I watched The Da Vinci Code.

Easy viewing for sure, but was just what we needed at the time.

Well one film I saw recently (I think I watched it in about mid-December) was a film I really should have seen by now (given I'm 47!!) and that was The Godfather! It was utterly brilliant and totally lives up to its reputation. Just need to watch part 2 and 3 now!

I've never seen the Godfather films either, but they say that part 2 is even better than the first one.

Yes I've heard that too. I'm looking forward to it :)

I watched 111 films in 2020 (I won't list them all!), but none so far this year.

 

Never did get around to that Lord of the Rings re-watch at Christmas...

I don't watch a lot of films but my niece was over a couple of days ago (it sounds weird saying you had someone over now doesn't it? Her and her mom are my 'bubble', if anybody's wondering) and she wanted to watch the new Baywatch film (mainly, I think, because she loves Dwayne Johnson). I think it might be the weirdest film I've ever seen.

Tenet - overly complex but good.

I'm Thinking of Ending Things - superb.

Next - I forgot how bad this was.

Dredd - hugely entertaining.

New Mutants - blah.

I’ve not heard anything good about Coming to America 2 which is a shame because I remember liking the first one when it came out.

Question, I'd anyone going into theaters to watch movies or are you paying lots of money to stream movies? Here in the States it's about $30.

I don't do either but $30 seems expensive! Is that for a particular subscription?

If it is the same as over here, it's for premium access to new movies that are either currently in the cinema or are only being streamed (I'm pretty sure $30 is roughly what Disney+ are charging on top of their monthly subscription for access to Black Widow, for example).

 

It sounds like a lot in the context of one viewer, but if you are a family of four it's about the same as, or cheaper, than going to the cinema.

I am genuinely shocked. Although I know you're right that it works out well if you'd be buying cinema tickets for a whole family. Do you get to keep the film forever too?

You can watch it as many times as you like, but it will be part of the regular service from October 6th so I don't see the point in paying extra at this point!

 

The price for Black Widow is £19.99 in the UK, btw.

I mean, I GUESS, if I'm taking more than one of my grands to the movies, plus popcorn and a drank, I could spend more. It's just the idea of spending that amount on one movie. Makes no sense but I can't do it! LMBO!!

How much would it normally take for you to get to see a film? (I mean, in the cinema, as an individual adult)

 

In the UK it varies wildly... 

 

My sister can get into her local for £5.00 whilst I have to pay about £12.00 (for a single ticket)

Watched Alita: Battle Angel on Amazon last night. A two hour film that stops half way through the story. Quite a violent film as well, that is also oddly twee in places.

 I watched the film adaptation of Jane Harper's book "The Dry" last night, it wasn't bad, stuck very closely to the book as far as I can remember, although obviously in the book there was much more background and character development.

The last film i watched was 'Angels with Dirty Faces'.

No matter how many times I see it, I always find the ending very moving.

Anyone else seen this classic?

Black Widow

 

If Marvel had made this film five years ago - when they should have - they might have gotten away with it, but following more recent MCU offerings this was a bit weak (it wasn't particularly well written and the action sequences weren't very convincing). 

 

It's a shame, Scarlett Johansson deserved better for what I am assuming will be her only solo effort.
