Went on a trip back to a time they called the 90's   Friday arvo I just needed to unwind and grabbed "Galaxy Quest". Good Star-Trek fandom spoof with Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver and Alan Ric

I have a vast collection of Blurays and DVD's, a lot of which have remained unwatched for different reasons, so I have embarked on a 'check out the ignored movies' quest.  Last days off, I pulled

Really liking this on Netflix - The Kominsky Method. Great dialogue.

I watched Jupiter Ascending last night.

Lately I have been picking horrific movies and last night entrenched my reputation that little but more. The partner is close to banning me from the DVD shop, which would be even more horrific because I would be doomed to romantic/yank college comedies until the ban was lifted.

It was really bad. Some awesome moments of CGI, then overshadowed by the recent trend to have waaay too much happening at once, at a speed too quick to hope to take in, all with a plot penned by an 8 yr old. Sooooooooo BLAND.

Really avoid. Don't say you weren't warned. Was amazed at the lack of an unfurling yank flag anywhere.

It is very hard to find a good movie at the moment.

Tried Dracula Untold as well, last week. Not too bad but not a patch on other versions, Bram Stoker etc.

I was in a situation similar to yourself not too long ago Daz so I enlisted the help of Flixster on my mobile. If there was a movie night coming up a quick squiz at the reviews would narrow down the options and weed out some duds. If we're out shopping together i can discretely check out her suggestions there and then. Jupiter Ascending has been canned by all and sundry so wouldn't have got a look in. It's not foolproof though, take "Locke" for example, was picked by myself and was absolute dross

What were you thinking man??   :)

 

"Don't say you weren't warned."  You hadn't already read any/all of the hate for this.. Wachowski's unending fall from awesomeness?

 

Dracula Untold?

 

Bloody hell man, I think the banning is a good thing ;)

 

(Avatar is awesome)

+1 for Book of Eli, similar looking but more industrial with Gary Oldman, a young Angelina Jolie looking Mila Kunis and another great corresponding soundtrack by Atticus Ross of Social Network with Reznor fame.

@@Jone5y , I loved Locke!

You might ban me as well! haha!

I tend to go for quirky. Loved Frank as well, partner labelled it the worst movie she had ever seen.

Thanks fir the Flixster heads up, very cunning plan my man!!! I have loaded the app but you might have to teach me how to discreetly check it. I don't usually do discreet. :D

I really enjoyed Frank. Fassbender was terrific in this role

I watched 'The selfish giant' the other night. Not sure if its been mentioned but highly recomended.

We need to import some of that water :lol:

 

The key marketability of our new babe in a bottle line of Genuine Ukrainin Imported H20 Beverages will be how quickly our product works?

 

Requiring it be taken from birth, it won't happen overnight but it will happen, or overnight?

Another Cusack gem is Grosse Point Blank, and talking martial arts, I really didn't buy him in the role till the pen fight scene, then read afterwards he is quite adept.

Yes, have watch three, and only liked the first.

 

Tony Jaa is a talented fellow, and the fight scenes were convincing, in fact those guys that were elbowed in the hear ect' were wearing protective scull caps under beanies and such.

Meh...wire work is fun to watch in the likes of movies of the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon kind, but often silly in may movies from my view :)

 

"pik pok pak goucha" :lol:

 

44?

i have seen guys restart at an age like that, at 54 and the bad foot I have now stopped thinking of doing anything apart from attempting to gain 5% back of the fitness I once had :rolleyes:

Also great in Hero, but Kung Fu Hustle is more comedy, and silliness abounds in just the right measure, definitely worth a look :thumb:

 

That's not a legit Kata? He told us Tripitaka swears by it :)

 

Yeah a very, very unfit 44. 5% is optimistic for me lol

Those kind of shows freak me out too much!

 

The dead should stay dead, unless It's a Resident Evil movie ;)

Seen recently

Minions - struggles to keep your attention, but very funny in parts. But I wonder who its target audience is as it strikes me as to adult for kids and too kiddy for adults, however the other side of he coin is there's something for everyone .if you do go , .ake sure you watch through the credits.

Ted2, cliched and predictable in parts, but again very funny in parts , some funny cultural references, and Wahlberg and Rogen do well together, scenes at comic on are funny. Some odd cameos and referring to Siegfrieds character to gollum is classic
