hey i'm all for discussing movies

they're remaking Ghost in the Shell with Scarlett Johansson (sigh)

the original Ghost in the Shell is fantastic 8/10

looks like it's not going to be the only American remake of a classic Japanese anime, as Christopher Nolan is rumored to be remaking Akira

it won't be his first movie based on a Japanese anime, since Inception is also based on Paprika

ScarJo as Motoko? Ahhh, no thanks. I don't think he has the nuance to pull off such a subtle and difficult character. I wonder what city it will be set it, I bet it won't be in Japan.

Hmm... the criticism regarding Spectre has me slightly worried. Not like I'm a huge fan of the series, but it's one I've been planning to see in theaters. Seems pretty long at 2h30m so here's hoping it's at least watchable.

If I rated Skyfall 7/10 (which means 'good' in my rating system), does that mean I'll find Spectre average? It looks like it.

The people who seemed to dislike Skyfall seem to like SPECTRE, and vice versa. So make of that what you will.

wow that is a great review. I loved casino royal very much and skyfall too. waiting for its release here in India.

Don't go in expecting it to be as good as Casino Royale or Skyfall, because it's a different kind of Bond. It's an action thriller, much like Quantum of Solace, but with far more substance.

would have loved to see Emily Blunt in the role personally

Basic Instinct (1992): 7/10

finally saw this movie, don't know what Sharon Stone what complaining about, that scene put her on the map. of course she couldn't have known about it back then

She did a unbelievable job as Charlotte in LiT, though, which was no easy character AFAIC.

Just saw AntMan. It was amazeballs! So funny, Paul Rudd is the man. Huge Michael Pena fan and he killed it as well. I really enjoyed it, different approach from Marvel, really embraced Rudd's loveability and humor. Also, Evangaline Lilly, oh my god.

Creed (2015): 8/10

oh yes, one the best movies of the year so far, Stallone with a fantastic performance, great fight scenes

In the heart of the sea (2015): 7/10

good movie, but nothing memorable about it

Crimson Peak (2015): 6.5/10

if you're into gothic romance stories with a little blood and violence in it, this will be right up your ally

Remember being blown away by that -if its the one im thinking of. Bloke took so much punishment, did he become an artist later on ? Havent seen that since about 1980

He became a sculptor when they opened the special unit in the Bar L for the serious blokes. When he was released he was 'advised' by the Glasgow police to find accommodation elsewhere, think he moved between Edinburgh and Falkirk. Lives in either Tunisia or Morocco now I think. Made his money to be fair, he wrote the book for the movie above on his life then he done another book I read years ago, 'Prison Dairies: The Pain of Confinement' well worth a read. I managed to find the movie on a torrent site a few years ago and watched it with my missus, who is from Eltham and had never heard of Jimmy Boyle, needless to say the movie didn't leave her with a positive opinion of him.

Just checked Amazon and low and behold. This looks like an addition to my xmas list :D .

Was just watching the torrent copy last night again to...

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sense-Freedom-DVD-David-Hayman/dp/B00ZI41B3S/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1449666516&sr=1-1&keywords=a+sense+of+freedom

Thanks. Need to rediscover this.

Just watched Jobsons 16 Years of Alcohol.Think it was Richard Jobsons debut, and aint a bad skinhead film, but the narration is unneccesary :D We can see whats going on.

@Fulham Broadway, What are some good classic British films to watch? I've seen a lot of the newer stuff and a few classics.

I've seen parts of Look Back In Anger and Kez but not the whole film. They are top of my list.

Depends what type/genre youre after. Good shout about Kes-I like anything usually by Ken Loach-Riff Raff , Land and Freedom, Wind that Shakes the Barley etc. He has unique style that simetime comes off of using unknown actors, giving them the script and saying get on with it.

Also recommend most things by Mike Leigh -Naked, Another Year, Life is Sweet etc

A good black comedy would be Sightseers.

Also films by Julien Temple usually worth a watch -things like Filth and the Fury about the Sex Pistols
