    I enjoyed Kingsmen too. The Church scene was cut in quite a few countries because of it's excessive violence, and being in a Church!

    I watched Fast 7 over the weekend. Enjoyed it, cheeseballs and improbable action but isn't that WHY we watch it?

    That ending though. GULP.

    Mad Max, again. Still good

    Amy (biopic of Ms Winehouse). Pretty good, watched it cos I like the music & was wondering whodunnit. Er, she did. No good blaming dad/husband/promoter/friends-who-weren't-there - stop cramming it up yr nose/in your veins/down your neck love. there's only 2 ways to go - up or down.

    The Master Plan. Swedish bank robbing/car stealing film, fecking plane landed about 10 mins before the end!! Good watch though even though subtitles. I had to imagine my own ending, involving the girl with dreadlocks mmm...

    Terminator Genisys - *Absolutely* loved it.

    MI5 - Not bad, I suppose, it's a bit samey same as the rest of them, but thats not a bad thing really.

    I could not disagree more. Its up its own arse in plot twists and utter bilge.

    The only saving grace were the bits lifted out of the first Terminator.

    Terminate ( see what I did there ? ) this crap now.

    Although I agree it could have been bilge, I took my brain out and switched off to plot issues before I watched it. I thought it was brilliant in the same vein as Pacific Rim, and Battleship, lets put it that way.

    I tried, I tried so hard to do that. I just couldnt stop me pulling a face that resembled this at half of the film


    Gutted isnt quite the word for me. I loved the first two Terminator films.

    has anyone here seen Infernal Affairs?

    Fantastic Four - drivel. Complete rubbish. The 2005 one was far better (and that wasn't exactly Oscar material)

    4/10 being generous.

    Exit through the gift shop...

    Apart from making the mistake of watching it with my bird, who can't keep quiet for longer than 30 seconds at a time, it was alright. I was a little annoyed at the way the dude with the camera was portrayed.

    A little background: camera dude was a cousin of the street artist 'Invader' & tagged along one day to record their activities....
    This practice grew until he had captured quite a few more artists like Shepard Fairey & eventually Banksy. Later he decided to become an artist himself ('Mister Brain Wash') & in the film the "real" artists, as they obviously thought of themselves, came across as not liking him for what seemed to be the following reasons:

    a. didn't spend ages being an artists eating beans on toast (fair do's, nobody likes get rich quick type chaps)
    b. seemed to 'demand' high prices from his art (in the film the starting price of Banksy's telephone box art was around 100,000 dollars...but that was OK?)
    c. his art didn't have much variation? (Shepard Fairey got his idea from the film 'They Live' & Andrey the Giant's face...remember [Rowdy] Roddy Piper is the main kiddy in 'They Live', repeating Mr. The Giant's face all over the world. Everyone gets their inspiration from somewhere - IMHO very few invent something new)

    Of course a film director is able to portray someone however they like. Detail on Banksy was minimal but in general the film seemed to be trying to say - "I want to be known for my art, not my face....whereas camera dude wants to be famous AND rich. The bastard". Touché mate.

    I think I'm just pissed off I missed Dismaland.

    I know, right? Mine is going to qualify for a full on punch in the chops one day. I won't watch anything with her that I havent seen before because i entirely expect her to rabbit through the entire thing.
    And also gets up to go to the bathroom or do something, without pausing it. That irritates the shit out of me too.

    I think the way forward is as you say to pre-watch the interesting stuff or to take them to something loud & simple at the cinema - like Hotel Transylvania 2 tomorrow :ea:

    Certainly not a good idea to try & get revenge by talking through their pish films, they would probably enjoy it. She asked me the other day do I want to watch Basketball Diaries...:jackiechan:

    My lass tends to be quiet. Right upto the second the trailers have stopped, and the first word of the dialogue have started.

    From that point onwards , it's like the pause button works in reverse

    I only watched this cos someone promised me that Adam Sandler fuckhead wasn't quite as massively irritating as he usually is.

    This was true, and, in fact almost drew a chortle with a couple of the one-liners.

    Otherwise, what an absolute pile of horse shit. 3/10, and 2 of those 3 are only cos I have fond memories of the classic games they savaged in the film.

    Kajaki: The True Story
    This film stressed me out , I cannot imagine what it was like for the guys on the ground. The sheer stupidity of some decisions ..

    The raid, first watch it with the subtitles not the voice over version as Indonesians with an american acent is a bit shit.

    the plot asians tactically kicking the shit out of other asians, gratuitous violence from the start and keeps it up.

    best bit the door execution. i'm quiet when watching films but a holy fuck escaped when this happend.

    plot was a typical action movie plot but everything is forgiven

    The first Raid (The Raid: Redemption, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1899353/?ref_=nv_sr_1 ) was epic. You'll notice the 2012 Judge Dredd with Kyle Urban (which was also epic) was based on this film, but with a hollywood budget.

    The Raid: Berendal (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2265171/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 ) which is the sequel picks up just after the end of the first one, and it's complete, unfettered lunacy.

    The Raid 3 is under development.

    If you liked these, go and Watch a film called Ong Bak starring Tony Jaa. He is a bona-fide mental case.

    ...and the Ip Man films with Donnie Yen
