    My big problem with the film is that the plot falls completely to pieces when you apply normal everyday working practices to the film's events. So it seems like all the key moments that the film revolves about are artificially created from multi layered incompetence. People are seemingly advanced enough to put people in space and travel at warp on a spaceship, but not to continue to carry out routine checks and follow normal protocols that we didn't require vulcan logic to devise from looking back through history see Valkyrie.

    Not seen this since it first came out at the cinema. Great film.
    The Dark Knight Magics.
    Yeah, but what really happens at the end?

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Batman is twins, Wolverine uses a duplicator that Ziggy Stardust gave him, that he uses to kill and duplicate himself every night.

    Rush 8/10

    Seen the film last night at the cinema and really enjoyed it.

    I was worried they would over embelish the story but in fact the opposite was true. They left out key moments from that season such as the disqualification at Brands and the dodgy petrol shenanigans at Monza. I assume this was done to focus more on the personalities of the 2 drivers rather than have us distracted by the politics and shady goings on behind the scenes.

    The chap playing Hunt is ridiculously well cast (perhaps a secret love child!) and everyone else does their job well. Racing scenes are convincing enough with a blend of new and classic footage that is seamless, although some of the spins and crashes didn't look quite right with the CGI and whatnot.

    I have a feeling the film experience would be better if you didn't know the ending before it started but I suppose the vast majority of the audiences will and it never hurt Titanic I suppose.

    Best bit of the movie for me was actually the first time all the engines fired up, just like being at a race track, I got chills it was so loud!

    Rush 10/10

    Yes, it really was that good. As a Cineworld unlimited card holder, I go about 6 times every month and can easily say this is the best film I have seen this year.

    The racing scenes were spectacular with a fantastic score and Daniel Bruhl stole the show for me with an amazing performance as Niki Lauda, which I am sure will see him in contention for an Oscar. Chris Hemsworth was great as James Hunt too. I would recommend anyone see this whether you are a F1 fan or not.

    I had no hopes for Rush, but it seems to be class. Look forward to seeing it. Daniel Bruhl is a legend though, top actor.

    Oh and for those saying that they could see the twist in oblivion even before they were born, I say bollocks. There r 2 twists in this movie and one is easier to spot than the other but neither are particularily overly obvious.
    Given away in the trailer FFS.

    yeah, the secondary twist is given away in every trailer made for it. The primary one is given away in the first five minutes.

    Both twists were more than obvious.

    Anyway, Oblivion... 5/10

    No originality. Too much Tom. Looked lovely though and the first half is great. It could have been something wonderful, had the lead been a different actor.

    What were the twists in Oblivion? There's a couple of reveals on the plot points but the lead up to them is so obvious I don't even know they'd count as twists tbh.

    The major one is 'he is a clone', which probably is a plot twist.

    Everything else like the tet is evil and the alien things are really humans less so, yeah.

    Story for the sake of story, film for the sake of film, breathing for the sake of breathing. Where does your argument end?

    I don't think the 'twists' were 'for the sake of it'. They were part of the story. If you're going to call every vague mystery -> tension -> reveal storyline a twist with the specific aim of then not enjoying it, you're going to have a bad time.

    Trailers are bad for you. Avoid if you can at all times.

    So, old age eh?

    I , after being warned that the ending 20 mins in Pacific Rim in IMAX were ridiculously, painfully, bombastically LOUD, took earplugs with me.

    Earplugs FFS!

    And I'm 'kin glad I did as it was bloody loud even with them in!

    Insane!

    For you many younglings reading this - the first day you find yourself taking earplugs to the movies with you, you will remember this post.

    Oh yes.

    Unless alzheimers takes your memory first of course.

    Were they bollocks. You could have told the exact same story with the "twists" revealed within the first few seconds and you'd have lost absolutely nothing from what little narrative there actually was. The only thing that would change is that Tom Cruise wouldn't have to use his surprised face and the audience wouldn't have a fleeting second of "OMG WHAT A TWIST" for the four people who couldn't work it out themselves.

    And of course you wouldn't have people bleating on about spoilers on the internet.

    PS TOM CRUISE IS A CLOWN.

    Oh. Its supposed to be an 'ironic' texting style as I use a blackberry; with which rioters and chavs are most associated. The irony comes from the fact that I am most definatley not a chav or rioter.

    Thanks for that. Maybe people want to discover things for themselves. Who are you to decide? That's pretty selfish and childish.

  • Deleted user 4 September 2013 20:25:27
    It's as much a spoiler as saying Morgan Freeman is in the film, so I wouldn't worry.

    Now if I were to tell you he fights Morgan Freeman to the death over a volcano after it turns out that Morgan Freeman was behind THE WHOLE THING, that would be a spoiler.

    I didn't really watch trailers so didn't see hints to that end. That's very not cool if true. Of course I realise it's probably a hilarious joke and not true, which makes it a rather unfunny joke rather than purposefully trying to ruin something for others. Both are not cool.

    Could you just please remove/replace the one in caps meme? Not for me, just for those that would prefer to go in blind. Please. I'd really appreciate it.

    Edit: Actually don't bother, 2 others have quoted it, which was a silly move.
