    the entire cast gives a top-flight performance and you never know what's coming next.
    Gambon is absolute class in this film.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    I actually thought the film was better than the book. Probably the only film that has ever created that opinion for me

    @Mr_Sleep Can you imagine how many lines he had to learn? I can't see Greenaway letting him make it up on the spot. Must have been bloody exhausting.

    Ah forgot it was based on a book. That will explain the god-awful voice over. Is the book good?

    Captain Phillips

    Enjoyable tense but not the earth-shattering experience I was expecting. If anything I thought Hanks was perhaps a little miscast - his star-wattage not really fitting the everyman in peril narrative. I also felt it ran out of steam a little when the action moved from the ship to the lifeboat.

    7.5/10
    I know what you mean, but he has that likeable presence, and aura that comes with being such a huge star, and I think that helps convince that he could be captain. Also, in the final scenes he's as good as anyone I've ever seen.

    Yeah, its alright. A bit boring in places and the end makes more sense in the film.

    Poltergeist, 7/10 - hadn't actually seen it before, thought I had but it must have been the sequel. It reeks of Spielberg's influence, unsurprisingly given he came up with the story, co-wrote the script and co-produced. Enjoyable, quite threatening and spooky at times, almost comedically unscary and playing it for laughs apparently at others. Did not expect to see it was a Tobe Hooper directed film.

    I don't "love it" - I just have a strange respect for it, and have never considered it particularly shit. But I also see all the problems with it too.

    The only thing worse than Alien 4, is people think they are breaking new ground by championing Alien 3.

    Good for you. You like a film most people don't. But it happens quite a lot.
    Just in case I'm being referred to here as well as that cerberus guy, I'm not championing Alien3, nor do I think I'm in any way special for happening to not think it's shit.

    I'd say that I "really like" it. It's on par with Aliens for me but below the first film.

    What are peoples thoughts on Alien and Aliens? I prefer the first one personally, though I like Aliens a lot too. I'd be interested to hear other peoples views on this.

    Aliens is to Alien what Terminator 2 is to The Terminator.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    This is why it goes around in circles, though. One person says how much they like a film like Alien 3, then people become outraged and try to discredit it. I'm not the biggest fan of Aliens but I can accept people love it. Are people really crazy for just enjoying a film?

    If you just disagree and give your opinion on why you dislike it, then it would move on. However, calling out people as crazy and telling them why they're wrong will never get you anywhere.

    I watched some of Predators last night again. I've discovered if you turn it off around about the point fat Morpheus comes into it, its actually pretty good.

    I always get confused with the alien films. Which one has Dennis Quaid in it?

    Anchorman 2

    A lot better than i expected and some real laugh out loud moments. Worthy of the original in my opinion

    8.5/10

    I thought this film was a shocker.

    Laughed a lot in the first 40 mins, but the laughs dried up about the time you realised it wasn't going to have any kind of story.
    Sub plots went no where at all (the buried news report, the Brick romance, the rival anchorman), and it just floundered for the last hour.

    I get the feeling they shot hours and hours worth of shit, but hardly any of it stuck.

    The Raid - 7/10

    Decent, but I think over-hyped. Only one or two really stand-out fights (and they were brilliant). Probably had the reverse experience of watching Dredd, which I much preferred.

    Rain Man - 10/10

    Needs no justification.

    Captain America: First Avenger - 6/10

    Fucking boring on re-watch, but I do quite like the straight-forward decency of the character. Very keen for the sequel.

    If you read up a bit you'll find that Spielberg at the very least co-directed it, and many of the crew claim he entirely directed it. It's a bit of a Hollywood legend.

    Reeeaally? That is interesting, I'll definitely be looking that up. Explains a *lot*.

    EDIT: Had a read of this page, makes a lot of sense. Particularly that Spielberg most definitely directed shots such as the remote control race-cars - that was the point at which I started thinking, "This seems far more like a Spielberg shot than a Tobe Hooper shot…", and there's loads more like that.

    Top tip, cheers.
