The Movie Thread
Ben (Arsenal) 7 years ago
Seen a great flick lately? Share it with your fellow Footy members!

This is the place to recommend, discuss, and learn all things movies. If you have some taste (very subjective), aside from which footy team to support, this is the place to show it. This goes without saying, NO spoilers.

Movie title - small review and/or imdb link - your rating (scale of 1-10)

I'll get things started with the last 5 films I saw:

Vicky Christina Barcelona - had everything I am into: travel, art, love, sex, scarlett johansson - 8/10


The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - story about a guy who ages backwards, will inspire, might even change some of you. Watch it! - 8.5/10


Slumdog Millionaire - oh, the underdog struggle! Great tale especially the beginning. 8.7/10


The Dark Knight - the joker steals the show! Dark and entertaining flick. One of my all time favs 9/10


The Devil's Advocate - took me a while to get to this one, and it well worth my time. 7.8/10


Let's keep this rolling.........

The dark knight is probably my favorite movie ever
Ltm017 7 years ago
Never saw the Dark Knight and I was never really interested to see it even though people say its amazing.

Just like I never really saw Iron man! I saw the first 10 minutes and stopped watching

Just recent movies? Or can we talk about classics? My Profile has some of my favourite movies

Recently though.... Gran Torino - Outstanding performance from Clint Eastwood as well as directing.compelling drama with some dark comedy and at times, reflective emotional moments. One of the gems of the past decade - 9/10

I saw this movie last week. This movie is very hard in his remarks. But everything is so well done

I recommend the movie Taken with Liam Neeson.


It was a lot better than I thought it was going to be. Filled with action. The only problem was that the plot and ending were kind of weak, especially the ending.

8/10 for me
Ben (Arsenal) 7 years ago
he pulled his weight (neeson) thought the plot was more suited for a denzel washington type, but my god was i wrong! ending not that great, but it was entertaining all throughout and the acting was ace... might have to watch the extended dvd version sometime
Franboy (Barcelona) 7 years ago
You're right, this movie is too good. Liam neesson really plays this role. Very good actor and very good movie
Ellada10 (Olympiakos Piraeus) 7 years ago
Wolverine was very good

I recommend Cocaine Cowboys if anybody is interested in drug movies
Bhawk11 (Bayern München) 7 years ago

Match (San Jose Earthquakes) 7 years ago
Lol transformers was a horrible movie
Bhawk11 (Bayern München) 7 years ago
I was dissappointed in transformers 2
Charlie (Barcelona) 7 years ago
This movie might be a little high-brow for some of you    
ManUK (Manchester United) 7 years ago
Ooh I can't wait!
Ltm017 7 years ago
I think there were more adults excited to see this than children! Lol
Blaak (Manchester United) 7 years ago
Terminator Salvation. Great movie. I really enjoyed it. Christian Bale did an outstanding job 8. 5/10
Match (San Jose Earthquakes) 7 years ago
I wasn't expecting much from this one, but it was really good
JohnnyG (Manchester United) 7 years ago

Only 24 more hours for America release. I've never been so excited for a movie
Franboy (Barcelona) 7 years ago
Not a great scenario but I admit that special effects are incredible. Optimus pride is impressive and Megan Fox is.... Oh Megan Fox

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) 7 years ago
Saw the Hangover this weekend, non stop laughter.... That bearded guy was genius!

Zach Galifrnacus (sp). His was the funniest character I think I've ever seen

I'm loking forward to harry potter 6th and transformers 2
Ben (Arsenal) 7 years ago
I heard Transformers was very disappointing? Is it worth the ticket? Are the action scenes worth it (besides Megan Fox!)
Charlie (Barcelona) 7 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) 7 years ago
And total of about 5mins of Megan Fox running in slow mo hmmm -_-
Adamaus (Manchester United) 7 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) 7 years ago
Oh man, I forgot about that...
Ltm017 7 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) 7 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] 7 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
