The Official Films Thread

Well bollocks, we've got a telly thread so I thought I'd create one for films too.

I'm currently working my way through Movies With A Twist Collection 3 which I downloaded years ago from TPB. All of those torrents are now dead which is a shame because I didn't get around to downloading Collection 4. I'm downloading all of those separately which is a hassle but will be worth it in the end going by 1-3 so far.

Am in the middle of watching Law Abiding Citizen, I think I've seen it before but i was so long ago I've forgotten what happens.

The problem with watching these films knowing that there's a twist makes it easy to work out what the twist in question is so probably better if you watch them without that knowledge lol

Here's a list of some of my all-time favourite films of all-time in no particular order:

Brazil
The Life Of Brian
The Holy Grail
The Meaning Of Life
Star Wars
The Empire Strikes Back
Lifeforce (a terrible film but the female lead vampire spends most of it naked lol)
All Lethal Weapons
All Die Hards
Every Dirty Harry Film
The Jungle Book (the Disney original)
Pi
Falling Down (just for the McDonalds scene lmfao)
Silent Running
Logan's Run
All 60s-70s Planet Of The Apes
Soylent Green

Am going to stop there otherwise this post is going to be HUGE lol

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 😄

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.
