Best films I have seen at the cinema in 2009 are 'The Curious case of Benjamin Button' and 'The Wrestler'

OK so I thought my top 10 movies of all time were pretty much set in stone, but having recently seen OldBoy (2003) I need to revise my list.




Absolutely fantastic film. Lead me to get 'I'm a cyborg but that's ok' by the same guy, which was also rather brilliant if you like completely mental things
Charlie (Barcelona) 5 years ago
Hmm looks interesting. Ill make a mental note to watch it on a rainy day

Anyone who hasn't seen Oldboy is in for quite a surprise! 1000% recommended

I saw funny people last friday. It was........................Funny. Haha I loved it. I couldn't get over adam sandlers rendition of Real Love. This movie will fit snuggly in my dvd collection; in between Superbad and Knocked Up

Can't wait till the rest of the world gets it - saw apatow on Daily Show plugging it - looks good
Charlie (Barcelona) 5 years ago
Oh, I didn't know the movie was only out in the states. Good thing I didn't ruin it for anyone by saying that sandler dies at the end or something

Apatow is a comedy genius, its all about good, funny dialogue with him. Doesn't worry about changing the camera angles too much so the actors can improvise easily, same with knocked up. I think its pretty cool how he's got his wife and kids in many of his movies, but his kids arent allowed to watch the movies they're in yet, he's making a fifteen minute kid-friendly version of funny people!

Well, just seen, a above avg film for me. Interesting plot based on a true story and very captivating, although the ending is a little awkward for me.

Other great films include The Departed, The Bourne Trilogy (absolutely my fave), Kill Bill 1 and 2.

Matt (Footytube Staff) 5 years ago
I am confused have you just seen a film called 'a above avg film for me' or a film called ', ' which was above average?

Your other recommendations are good, The Departed has maybe the best cast ever put together. The Bourne films are good and set the tone for the new Bond films (if Casino Royale had just a bit less product placement it would be one of the best action films out there).

Kill Bill 1 and 2 has me a little conflicted I do like Tarantino dialogue and music in his films are always captivating. Many of the plots and scenes he uses are taken wholesale from other films . Does this make them worse? Still looking forward to Inglorious Bastards

Right below are my recommendations for best worst movies. Movies that are so bad/super cheesy that they actually end up being good entertainment.

Crank 2: High Voltage.
Yeah I said it, now the first Crank was good, interesting concept and nice action scenes. A sequel looked unlikely due to the *SPOLIER ALERT* main character plummeting to his death at the end of the film *SPOILER END*. Chev Chelios retuns in the sequel and a hyperactive, bizarre, gross and not least very funny (unintentional?) film is the end result. I give it 8/10 on the bad film nothing else to watch scale.



Snakes on a Plane.
Samuel L Jackson is cool there is no getting away from that you could put the dude in an episode of Emmerdale Farm and it would be unmissable. Put him in a film with a plot written by an eight year old with a snake fetish and you get a quotable classic. Not wanting to spoil the plot for you it's about some err snakes on a plane thats about it. 7.5/10 on the cheese o' meter.



Shoot em' Up.
My personal fave, why you ask? Well its basically just a string of the most imaginative action set pieces that you will ever see. It also has three of the best actors around today in Paul Giamatti (Sideways,American Splendor,Duplicity), Clive Owen (Children of Men,Inside Man,Sin City) and the stunning Monica Bellucci (The Matrix Reloaded,Irréversible,Under Suspicion). I give it 10/10 action fest no brain rating.

Shoot em' up ws f*****g awsome. It made me want to buy a gun!

Crank 2 was awesome. Kinda weird, but awesome

The Hurt Locker. A great movie, really intense. Its about a bomb unit in Iraq. Super intense, and well made. I was a bit iffy on the fact that it was filmed in 16mm film instead of HD or anything, but it was spectacular. Really made me feel as if I was there in the action. The guy who played the main character was also an excellent actor. I'm not sure how widely distributed it is as its an independent film, but I highly recommend it!

I heard Bruno was like 80 minutes of gay porno, but Harry Potter was sick, and Emma Watson was super hot in it
Adamaus (Manchester United) 5 years ago
Bruno was very awkard, funny but only gay people would go see it 2 times.

I'm about to go see harry potter, should be good, ill give you rating when I get back.

Hopfully like tranformers 2 they have slow mo's but this time of emma watson
Moocow111 (Arsenal) 5 years ago
I saw Bruno. I thought it was a funny movie. I don't why some people are hating on it....

I didn't think it was better than Borat though, still funny. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Wow Transformers 2.... By far the biggest disappointment in my personal movie watching career
Charlie (Barcelona) 5 years ago
Like I said, it was made to entertain people, I bet most people in the theater with you were laughing at the dog humping and the special brownies. Bad acting and a story filled with plot holes. Just a summer blockbuster

Are you serious?!
Charlie (Barcelona) 5 years ago
Yeah. Don't get me wrong, I liked it, it was fun. But people didn't go see it for the acting or story line, just for giant robot on robot acton

Drag me to hell had cheesy CG work, but Sam Raimi did a great job. Still gives me the creeps, darn Gypsi!

Charlie (Barcelona) 5 years ago
I saw it in the theaters, walked out halfway in thinking, wtf was that?
Ben (Arsenal) 5 years ago
What are you saying Charles? Was it that bad? The trailer/reviews looks awesome. I might catch it tonight or tomorrow night
Charlie (Barcelona) 5 years ago
It was like watching a parody of a horror film, I thought it was lame. It seemed like all they wanted to do was gross you out the entire time. It just didn't work for me. I give it one star (out of 5)
Ben (Arsenal) 5 years ago
I heard Transformers was very disappointing? Is it worth the ticket? Are the action scenes worth it (besides Megan Fox!)
Charlie (Barcelona) 5 years ago
Hell yes its worth it! What were they expecting, a Rom-Com? The entire movie is one action scene. And its funnier than I thought it would be too
Neonseong (Liverpool) 5 years ago
And total of about 5mins of Megan Fox running in slow mo hmmm -_-
Adamaus (Manchester United) 5 years ago
Yea deffinatly worth seeing in theatre. No. 1 is better but still an awesome movie and as neon said about 5 min of megan in slow mo running sceene
Charlie (Barcelona) 5 years ago
Oh man, I forgot about that...
Ltm017 5 years ago
I saw Transformers in IMAX! The best experience ever! That is definitely how you watch a movie.... In imax! Yeah it got bad reviews but I thought it was awesome. It was funnier with lots of action.... Full of action actually. I would say it is about as good as the first or better.... I recommend
Adamaus (Manchester United) 5 years ago
Oh and how you said the movie is an entire an scene kinda true but the reason for that is the director michael bay, he always has action packed movies, so its kinda expected
[account-removed] 5 years ago
Apart from the beach watch style scene with megan fox, leading to me needing a quick change of underwear, I found it really samey and its true that its just one huge action scene with no real plot the speak of. At the end I was just praying for it to finish

The Hangover was great. They basically perfected low-brow comedy with that movie. If you want ssome laughs, then that'll be a great movie to watch
Ben (Arsenal) 5 years ago
Saw the Hangover this weekend, non stop laughter.... That bearded guy was genius!

Only 24 more hours for America release. I've never been so excited for a movie

Not a great scenario but I admit that special effects are incredible. Optimus pride is impressive and Megan Fox is.... Oh Megan Fox
