    American Sniper.


    I think behind all the propaganda B.S there was a great film. It really detailed the withdrawal and stresses that a man went through in his ~1000 days in EYE raq. ( Iraq for the English speakers , and finally لعراق‎| for the Arabic speakers out there. )

    It also showed what a moral booster and propaganda machine the person Chris Kyle was for the US and the obvious fear card for the AQi

    From what I understand there were a few technical liberties takes with the film from its book conversion , such at the 2100 yard shot killing another sniper was in fact hitting a RPG wielding fool. Either way , impressive sniping. There are also a few other stupid bits as well that go against basic solidiering , like running on top of a building showing your silhouette against the skyline. Makes a great film , but not really accurate ..

    Some really heart moving stuff in there too.

    Get past the B.S in the film , and its fantastic

    8.5 / 10

    I didn't even give it the time of day - thanks for confirming what had been pre-cursored by the films before it. There has only ever been one great FF - and that was 1 and because it was shite and it kick-started probably one of the biggest movements in car modding history. It's more the latter that makes it a classic to be honest, and there have been so many lines from that film littered within the modding / tuning word it's become an institute in it's own right.

    Dude! I almost had you! You almost had me?

    Brilliant - and by accident.

    Ted 2 - Enjoyed the first one, but feared the sequel was gonna be bad...and it was. Utter shite.

    The Imitation Game.

    True story about the breaking of the Enigma Code and the group that built it. A sterling performance by Cumberbatch playing a possibly autistic genius. I'd give this a 5/5 but Kierra 'gets on my tits' Nightly is in it and spoils it for me.

    A serious film for serious people, the 1 or 2 of you out there should love it.

    Yep, great film, as was Theory of Everything (Hawking's bio).

    Opposite end of the spectrum, but looking forward to Terminator and Mission Impossible.

    I'd like to get on HER tits.

    This x 100000. Of the films this year I was looking forward to, these are two of em, the others being Mad Max Fury Road (which was fucking epic) and Jurassic World (not seen it yet)

    High hopes for brain-out, full on cheeseballs action!

    Not forgetting Star Wars towards the end of year as well of course. That's my 'must see' film of 2015 - Hope it's on par with 4/5/6 and not 1/2/3!

    You might like it mate, but I thought it was gash. Poor plot, unfunny jokes, and quite why the feck Morgan Freeman, a highly-rated actor if ever there was one, ended up in this film, I have no idea.

    I loved ted, ted 2 on the other hand was hard work, didn't flow, tried to be family guy with the side shots, funny but more a stoner film than worth a watch

    Few bits to add - firstly Kiera Knightlys tits, or rather lack off - if you would like to get on those I suggested you might be better suited to the priesthood as her breasts are smaller than a 14 year old boys! :0).

    Will wait for Ted 2 to come out on telly.

    The Enigma Code and American Sniper I thought were very good - 8 and 7.5 respectively.

    IMO Fast and Furious 5 is the best followed by 6 and then Tokyo drift. The cars are far better in the later films and lets be honest there's no other reason to watch them.

    Terminator Genesys - very enjoyable, 3rd best of the Terminator films behind 2 and 1

    Saw Antman last night and was pretty good, I wasn't expecting it to be great but was very watchable. No Avengers assemble or Guardians of the Galaxy but certainly in the middle of the Marvel film list for me.

    Kingsman - damn that was good. No good ever came of killing loads of people in a church btw. 8/10

    The Taking of Tiger Mountain - mad kung fu type Chinese film. Passed a couple of hours. 6/10

    Spare Parts - feel good underdog film about Hispanic students taking on MIT in a robotics competition. The robots go mad & take over the world. I made that last part up but it would have been more interesting. 5/10

    Now watching Fight Club (in Russian as wor lass who is a Rusky has never watched it all the way through)....9.5/10.

    & drinking Hoegaarden beer after melon juice + vodka.

    The young dude (Eggsy) spoiled it a bit for me - do people really dress & talk like that? If you want to contrast someone from a disadvantaged area to Colin Firth's character & chums, then there are much shitter places in the UK to choose from than within the M25.

    "What do you think of the North-South divide, Eggsy?" "U wat me old china? North-South LAHNDAHN?"
