Arlingtion Road was a creepy movie. For some strange reason I liked it. I don't know why, I just did.

Re: Last film seen...

Just saw part of "Hell Drivers."  This is probably the only film where you get a former 007 (Sean Connery) being beat up by John Drake, I mean, Patrick McGoohan.  Herbert Lom (best remembered as (former) Chief Inspector Dreyfuss of Pink Panther fame) and the guy who played the original Dr. Who are in it, too.

Not exactly the greatest movie of all time, but it's not too bad.  It's about a bunch of truckers who compete against Patrick McGoohan's character to drive over trucks of gravel the fastest.  It's better than the description.

Flattery will get you nowhere, but don't stop trying.

Just bought my spanking new North And South DVD boxset. I've been waiting to relive the 80s with this - one of the finest miniseries ever made!

Re: Last film seen...

I just watched The Cabinet of Dr Caligari. I never watch silent films and was highly reccomended. All I can say was, Excellent.

Re: Last film seen...

24 Hour Party People (about Manchester's Factory Records) for the second time, it stands up well. Coogan as record label boss/TV presenter Tony Wilson is really just Alan Partridge, but in spite of this, it is better than expected, with surprisingly moving moments regarding Joy Division, before it all goes uproarious tits-up with the Happy Mondays. Winterbottom's direction is top notch – another Bond contender?

Re: Last film seen...

Went to the cinema last night to see De-Lovely...the story of Cole Porter.Not a bad film,regardless of the ctitics.Its great to see the likes of Robbie Williams,Mick Hucknall and Sheryl Crow singing some old classics,all with varying results!! Alanis Morissette was my favourite with Lets Do It.Kevin Kline was excellent...but I would only see it if you like Cole Porter.

Re: Last film seen...

Saw Collateral on Sunday night. Starring Tom Cruise and directed by Michael Mann it's pretty much what I expect of them - a good movie. Not totally happy with the ending though, but a good movie all the same.

STAR CRASH!! (aka STELLA STAR)

I know it's a cheesy take off to capitalize on STAR WARS, but it has some cute Harryhausen-like effects, and ...........drum roll please..................

Re: Last film seen...

Watched Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow last night. Really enjoyed it, a bit more could have been done with the robots but on the whole it's good escapism and good fun - and Lord Olivier as the bad guy ? Fantastic !
It is a bit 1950's-Saturday-morning-serial - but what's wrong with that ? It even reminded me (a bit) of Dead Men Don't wear Plaid - and that can't be bad ajb007/biggrin

Kangaroo Jack. Hands down the most annoying movie I saw this year, that what I get when I have watch my nephews.

Re: Last film seen...

Resident Evil: Apocalypse. Dumb movie, but it's good to see a film like this putting real stunt people to the fore of the action and reigning back on computer generated effects.

Re: Last film seen...

I saw The Philadelpha Story for the first time yesterday, and it immediately ranked on my all-time favorites list.  How could you not love a movie with Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, and Jimmy Stewart all trading withering quips?  The scenes after the party when everyone's drunk are absolutely brilliant.  The little sister was extremely underrated...actually, everyone in the cast was great, so I'll shut up there.

You can definitely see a lot of elements of Hepburn's role as Eleanor of Aquitaine in The Lion in Winter, another excellent film about the Plantagenet family.  I can understand how Hepburn was accused of playing herself, but her performance is so polished that I don't care.

Flattery will get you nowhere, but don't stop trying.

Re: Last film seen...

The Cable Guy with Jim Carrey and Matthew Broderick. Interesting, but Carrey's too frankly scarey and oafish to win even tentative friendship from anyone - 'you've got to have reality, Spike' - and the Meet the Parents guy would have been better in the Broderick role.
A nasty spin on The Odd Couple, anyhow.

Re: Last film seen...

In the cinema: Cellular, a fun caper that was short enough for me to ignore the plot holes.

On the television: Gossip, a laugably bad film with Kate Hudson before she got (almost) famous.  I can't believe I actually sat through it.

On DVD: GoldenEye...introduced my daughters to Pierce as Bond.

Hilly...you old devil!

Bruce Almighty. - This was good but sub-par from other Jim Carrey movies

Re: Last film seen...

Right now I'm watching The Cheap Detective with Peter Falk. Very classy and witty movie. It's on sale at Walmart in case anyone's interested.

Re: Last film seen...

I just saw Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and was one of the craziest movie I've ever seen.

Re: Last film seen...

Earth vs The Flying Saucers

Harryhausen's effects make this the king of all Atomic age sci-fi classics.

Then I watched the hour long documentary narrated by Leonard Nimoy on Ray. When is the greatest film of all time finally going to make a DVD debut? I'm talking about King Kong darn it all!
