    Maybe someone should start a thread on the worst film you have ever seen. The list would probably fill a library though since there's only ever a few really good films made each year..
    No. That would cause a shitstorm of people insulting each other over opinions. Best to just leave it as is.

    One of my favourite films is also one of my worst films of all time, Life Force. Based on Ray Bradbury's short story Vampires From Space. It's a terrible film but has a female vampire that spends most of her time in the film nekked.

    Also stars Patrick Stewart, fuck knows what he was thinking when he agreed to be in it lol :D

    Watched Layer Cake again at the weekend. That film is a masterpiece.





    You'll no doubt recognise a couple of the many Brit actors from Band of Brothers in there, too.

    I watched Layer Cake a few weeks ago, it was fantastic. Easily on a par with Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels which is another one of my favourite British films.

    Rewatching the entire Police Academy series.

    80/90 movies are the best....todays movies are pure junk for the most part compared to the older ones.

    I've been watching some crap lately and I'm in need of a good film. Seen most of the ones listed here, so keep the good ones coming. I hate seeing a film that starts of good and then becomes ridiculous with about 30 mins left. I'd just prefer them to be ridiculous from start to finish and that way I could turn off 15 mins into the film..

    Yup, did see all episodes of that series last week, it was a great show. Still need to catch up on the latest season of Better Call Saul, though...

    Well our favourite for years (Mrs Brix and I) was The Last Boy Scout, closely followed by Zulu.

    These days we tend to watch The Bank Job, Departed, Street Kings and Animal House more than anything else.



    Excellent picture :)

    I know there aren't too many Walking Dead fan's here, but tonights episode is my favorite episode in a long time. I feel that they just revived the show. We shall see!

    Not to spoil the memory but a chap once told me in the book the computer kills the boy when he tries to link to him and all the boys memories goes into the AI. What a different movie that would of been eh.

    Not sure if anyone's seen this, but I always liked the movie Payback with Mel Gibson.  It has a strange mix of dark comedy, harshness, and a modern day dystopian feel.  It's a pretty simple story line and the movie doesn't try to pretend to be anything more than it is.  But it's actually quite good.  This movie has always stuck with me.

    Just saw this one last night in blu-ray 3D - the wife, our 10 year-old-son and I all thought it was an awesome movie, possibly even better than the first - and no, it won't win any prices for providing the best social realism or intellectual stimulation  ;)


    I did have a glass or two of red wine which may have perfectly sedated my frontal lobes in order to enjoy the movie to the fullest :blush:

    As shown in my previous posts, I greatly prefer social realist and deep existential films, and luckily I got a few Black Friday  :D  



    The kids haven't seen Jungle Book in 3D, so although it's old, got that one too  o:) Did see SW in the cinema, but my collection isn't complete without it...

    All excellent choices.  I recently picked up a few anime English movies myself.

    Guys, who's watched Mortal Engines? 7.6 on IMDb. Is it worth going to the cinema? 
  • JD-UKJD-UK Posts: 2,296 Valuable Player
    Tomorrow evening my wife and I will treat ourselves once more to the 1978 zombie classic "Dawn Of The Dead". The full thing is avaiable on YT, rather than the cut version usually shown on TV, propbably due to its length. It is a bit blurry - but we can stand that for the entertainment value.

    It looks a bit corny (understatement) these days, but back then it was the mutt's nuts.

    I love payback as well. While we are on the Mel Gibson train anybody see Apocalypto, very good.

    Seen most of the films listed here and haven't seen a really good movie for about 3 months now. I would say around 1 in 10 movies are good, that's how shite the film industry has become at making decent films. I get sick of wasting my time watching the first 30 mins of a film and then switching it off..

    Haven't seen it, but for me personally very few films each year are worth going to the cinema these days considering how expensive it is to get a seat and refreshments.

    30+ years ago it used to be A LOT cheaper to go, these days you need a second bloody mortgage :(

    The 70s and 80s were awesome in cinemas, the 90s were a LOT less awesome and from the 00s onwards it's all a bit pants. I don't bother going any more, I just download and watch stuff when there's a decent screener,
