  • Anyone who has seen the Adjustment Bureau... the office scenes were filmed in my firm's New York office. Very interesting fact for you all! :-) Matt Damon was a lovely guy according to my NY colleagues.
  • Just seen limitless. Good fun- recommend it.

    Empire magazine say he's the nicest bloke they've ever interviewed. Good on him. Not a bad actor either.
  • If anyone is a fan of Ray Winstone you have to see London Boulevard - Quality
  • Not a new film but currently on Sky Movies - Cemetery Junction.

    Watched it last night, excellent. If you're looking for entertainment from a film rather than spending weeks working out what you've just watched then this is for you.

    Set in 1973 in a Reading suburb this film by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant tells the tale of three young men reaching maturity and confronting the situations that young adulthood throw up.
    I must say the sets and locations are very authentic, as you'd expect from these two I guess. Some real loud laugh out moments but also so touching scenes too. Great characters, some to love, some to hate and a great soundtrack.

    Thoroughly recommend it.
  • Seen a few new ones in the last week.
    Johnny English Reborn - expected so much more, poor
    Drive - not bad but had so much potential to be quality
    Contagion - good film, makes you think, it could happen tomorrow
  • Watched Midnight In Paris today. Woody Allen back to his best, thought it was brilliant.
  • Red State is a great watch, check it out if you can
  • Johnny English - OK just
    Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy - Just wasted 2 hours of my life - utter cack.

    Taking my lad to see johnny english this weekend.

    Really was looking forward to seeing Tinker........ but not heard a single decent review yet, so disappointed before I even see it. I'll wait for dvd release I think.

    TTSS a great film every newspaper gave it 4 or 5 *. a film you need to concentrate on but worth it.
  • We watched it in Bromley Cinema - squeeky seats and sticky floors. but defo good to go and see it with a clear head and not late at night after a few beers. you do have to concentrate but it is really good. Great line up and fab acting.
  • Watched Drive last week thought it was fantastic, great soundtrack as well.

  • Red State is a great watch, check it out if you can

    Being a Kevin Smith fan I am biased but thought it was his best film. It's not very often I say that films should be longer but my only gripe is he could have developed the characters a little more. Other than that very enjoyable.

    Saw Tinker Tailor on Sunday, thought it was ok, nothing more. I guess slightly disappointed as I expected more.

    Watched Drive last week thought it was fantastic, great soundtrack as well.

    Want to see this but not many places still showing it, probably just wait until DVD now
  • TTSS - a case of the emperor's new clothes I thought - disappointing
  • Paddy Considines' new film Tyrannosaur is worth a watch
  • Paddy Considines' new film Tyrannosaur is worth a watch
    I've heard there are no actual dinosaurs in that film, though...
  • @ Leroy Ambrose & @ Jimmy Melrose

    Was going to mention Irvine Welsh, one of my favourites. I can kind of understand how it might be off putting, but in the case of No Country For Old Men and some of his others I think its key to the nature of the people he is writing about.

     

    You probably wouldn't enjoy The Barrytown Trilogy, which is one of the funniest set of books ever. You can watch the films though which are almost as funny, but you'l still have to put up with the accents and slang ;-)

    Totally agree, thought the ending was a bit patronising as well, could have left it after the horns were blowing and it would have blown my mind.
  • It makes a change for Kevin Smith to make a good movie.  ( i haven't seen it yet )  He's been riding on the back of Clerks for years now and he's made some awful movies. His Smodcasts are fantastic though.

    Agreed he has made some cack but also some very funny films as well, I don't think you can say he is specifically riding off the back of Clerks, I would imagine more people know him for Dogma than anything else.

    I'm struggling to think of any films he has made that i found funny. 

    and i include all of these , Jay and Silent Bob strike back , Zac and Miri make a Porno , chasing Ami , Cop Out ,  Clerks II and Dogma.

    It's all about opinions i guess and you never know , i might even like Red State. 
  • Clerks 2 and Dogma are great comedies.
  • Also, Chasing Amy's been called "the original bromance film", I've always liked him, but i can see how his films might not be everyone's cup of tea

    The Snapper is one of my favourite ever films.  Watched it tonnes of times years back and never failed to screech laughing.  In fact i might see if i can buy a copy as been years since i watched it.
  • Sharktopus unearthed this little gem the other day and it was without doubt the best film ive watched in ages
  • Beds, I think you need to cheer up a bit, I know people who generally don't like his films to find Zack and Miri hilarious and others to love Dogma but not any other Smith films. I agree with @kentaddick that he isn't everyone's cup of tea but out of all those mentioned to not find one of them funny, I think you need help, on the other hand you might enjoy Red State as it definitely isn't a comedy. Although parts did make me laugh

    Agree with you on Cop Out though ;-) but at least he didn't write that.

     

  • no idea what most of the films being talked about are, or how No Country For Old Men came up but it is written by Cormac McCarthy - and it's one of those rare occaisons where an excellent book has been made into an excellent film.

    Great film. Does the novel end so abruptly as the film though?
  • Just watched Senna - A quite stunning film. ( currently on sky Box office)
