Hahaha... my youngest went to see it last week and loved it... didn't stop talking about it for days and demanded that we return to the cinema to see it with her. I politely declined!

Deadpool - absolutely fantastic film, great story loads of action/humour all held together by a brilliant script. I'm really not one for the Marvel films but this is a true exception to the otherwise oh so tired franchise. Cannot recommend enough :D

Utter shite from start to finish, not even vaguely saved by a half decent soundtrack. To think the same team that produced the excellent Guardians of the Galaxy were responsible is somewhat puzzling.

Yea I was roped into going to see this. I am not keen on superhero films to begin with, but I still managed to find Suicide Squad as possibly the worst cinema experience I've ever had. It was very, very boring. Obviously it's not my thing, aimed at me, or part of my culture, I shouldn't have been there & normally I wouldn't have. But as a film it was so goddamn boring & vacuous there was really nothing fun in it for me.

Found the Nick Cave film hard to watch. Reminded me of my own grieving over the last 5 years.

The next (so far) film I have coming up is Herzog's Lo & Behold at LFF . It might be a Q&A also. If I've booked the right thing.

I chose not to go to the nick cave film, but I regret it now.
I think the record is one of the most striking & stunning pieces of work that has impacted me, ever. It's unspeakably sad, powerful & potent. I can't escape it presently. It has engulfed me & sets the tone of my existence every day.
Normally that sort of obsession would signal a darkness but the opposite effect is happening. The value in it is so pure that I've found it truly transformative.
It's terrible of course, but there is at least something positive to take from this tragedy. It makes me appreciate what I've got. Appreciate the ordinary.

Aye, what can you do? You don't want to impose on these people, they're just regular folk after all. But at the same time you want to express your gratitude to the value their work has brought to you.

I met a hero of mine recently & it was pretty much the only time in my life I've been star struck. I couldn't even speak properly even tho there was so much I wanted to say!

If I saw nick I'd be doing well to fight the urge to give him a hug to be honest! It's not like I'd want anything from him, or recognition or an autograph or a picture. I'd just like to express my thanks & sympathies. But I'd also shy away cause I wouldn't want to overstep.
Even when artists are doin meet & greets & signing stuff after gigs I never do that. I've walked right past mark lanegan & cat power. I really regret not speaking to chan.

I have talked to j actually. But that was just about the weather.. I think he might've been looking for a spliff tbh, but he'd just missed it by a couple of mins & I was in no state for another so soon or else I'd have missed the gig..

Well worth a look, powerful stuff from that well known hot bed of movie making the United Arab Emirates! Seriously though this is a brilliant film that grabs you by the throat from the off and doesn't let go :!:

Saw it last night, agree with all of the above. There's an awful lot of people who need to see this film and have their eyes opened to the shite people have to go through to get some help.
Could definitely relate to Daniel being sent around the houses chasing his tail. All designed to grind you down and make you give up from continuing your claim.

Jumping into a thread I've not even lurked on before...

Simon Amstell has a new film on Iplayer called 'Carnage'. Set 50 years in the future where everyone has become Vegan the film acts as a documentary telling the story of how it happened. It manages to be pretty funny without being too preachy and I'd say it is worth a watch.

Anyone else seen it? Thoughts? http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04sh6zg

I saw Carnage last night. Very funny with some real eye opening stuff. A few bits had me belly laughing which doesn't happen that often. Also, I'm not sure I can drink milk again.

Fans of Sighteseers




Alices Lowes (directorial debut) pregnant character is off on a revenge spree after her husband dies in a climbing accident. Its in the same vein as Sightseers and it felt like there were a few nods to the film "Angst" that FMSpaceman posted earlier. Thank you FM for a truly terrifying evening on Sunday :)

Watched Rogue One and Kong Skull Island recently and enjoyed both. I am a massive Peter Cushing fan and thought those scenes were done very well. Regards Skull Island the helicopter sequence near the beginning was immense a proper leave you brain at the door action romp that was thoroughly enjoyable throughout. Moving away from the 'blockbusters' also watched The Guard Post (GP506) which was also a good (if intense) watch :D

[quote="ChapmanH"]Hi all, any of you movie buffs into the classic Ivan the Terrible films? A friend of mine put a beautiful video up for "Stay With Me" set to an excerpt from Ivan the Terrible 1. It just works. See what you think:

Where is this vid? Link says 'no longer available'. I did see it a few years back and thought it was great.

Phenomenal documentary!

FYI the film is often called "The 7 5" or "Seven Five", for those looking for it on streaming sites.

Well worth seeking out. A very well made film not just for hardcore doc fans. This true story makes Serpico look relatively tame by comparison.
