The Movie Thread
Salt (Aston Villa) 7 years ago
A great double bill yesterday:

500 Days Of Summer in the cinema at lunchtime and Se7en at home in the evening.

Really pleasantly surprised at 500 Days Of Summer. I really like Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel but still I was not expecting to enjoy a film I'd heard described as a rom-com. It's a superb film and I'm sure most lads can relate to the feeling of falling for a girl that doesn't fall as hard. An unexpected ending wound up a twisting narrative and sent us home really happy. Excellent film

I saw 500 with my gf. We liked it

Me and the wife went. It's the first time we've been able to enjoy the same film since Little Miss Sunshine! We've got very different taste in film. We both liked The Boat That Rocked, to be fair. But I only really liked the soundtrack so we're not claiming that one

I usually not a fan of romance films but this one just grabbed me because of how easy it was to identify with. Everything was great and I think I'm in love with Zoey Deschanel

The wife and I take it in turns to select films as we have such different taste in movies. The Wrestler was my latest pick(Mickey Rourke was rightly nominated for the Oscar and ever so slightly unlucky not to get it, in my opinion). I'm not looking forward to tonight's DVD, though. It's her turn and I'm going to be subjected to Confessions Of A Shopaholic. Seriously

I have it, and It's hilarious in most of the scenes. A western, but mixed with humor!

Another great Movie, The Crow.
If you haven't seen this one already, I suggest you do so. Not a PG movie......

Yeahhh The Crow is one of my favourite films.    Brandon Lee (the actor who plays the lead) actually died on set while filiming it!
Omar (Arsenal) 7 years ago
Oh I know. Bruce Lee's only son, I believe
I'm wondering what scene he died in. Supposedly it included a gun, but there a lot of scenes with a gun. Anyone have an idea?

I recently saw District 9 (I know it's been out ages everywhere, but it's still not out properly here in Malta). It was one of those films I hadn't looked into too much save to watch the short by Neil Blomkamp 'Alive in Joburg'.

So I knew nothing of the plot which was rare these days, and I won't write anything about it here just in case others have managed to avoid spoilers and have not seen it yet.

There are a few interesting facts about this film which I feel adds to the real mocumentry style.

The main character Wikus played by Sharlto Copley had never acted before on film before and all of his scenes were improvised.

All the shacks in District 9 were actual shacks that exists in a section of Johannesburg which were to be evacuated and the residents moved to better government housing.

If you have not seen the film I urge you to do so before you get told all of the good bits

I didn't expect much from this movie, so I was happily surprised at how, in one word, good, it was.

All of his scenes where improvised? Wow. I'm no film critic, but I thought he did an incredible job.

You know there is a lesson to be learned in this surefire cult classic, but right know I'm just content with watching a good film
