    Rate the last film you saw

    Doesn't seem to be a general thread for films, just specific ones?

    Saw Ghost Town last night and thought it was very good. It's a lovely film, and surprisingly understated. Ricky Gervais was...well, Ricky Gervais in it but it was his co-star Tea Leoni who made it work so well. Definately worth a couple of hours of your time.

    George Byrne savaged this film in his review, although I suspect it was probably more to do with his anti-Gervais obsession. (George is a bit of a plonker though, and tends to repeat himself ad nauseum when he takes a dislike to someone.)
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    ..."watching" Sex and the City -the movie with Mrs. Ritchie right now. Sweet holy mother of divine fcuk.

    ...a brand new dyson couldn't suck like it. It's like they drafted in the scriptwriters from Home and Away to tighten up the dialogue a bit.

    Had a choice between Taken and Burn after reading, 'cos taken was out earlier I figured go to that and catch Burn after Reading another time.

    Big mistake. I knew it was poor to begin with, but I was hoping for better.

    The last film I seen was Righteous Kill.. Alright film, got a bit better towards the end but kind of boring in the middle when the novelty of DeNiro and Pacino together wears off. It's worth it though if you're a big DeNiro / Pacino fan!

    Watched Usual Suspects last night. Had seen it once before years ago and couild vaguely remember the twist in it but still found it very entertaining. It held up well. I now want to watch it again in light of the ending.

    Watched Boy in Striped Pyjamas. Decent film, nothing special though.

    Burn After Reading.

    Mweh.

    Not amongst the Coen brothers best (nowhere near Fargo or No Country for Old Men), nor is the worst.

    Go with low expectations and you'll likely not be too disappointed.

    I saw A Film With Me In It last night. I was great... no, hang on... it was great. I'm not in it, in spite of the title.

    Anyway, enjoyable black comedy.

    Saw A Film With Me In It on Monday. It was alright, some funny bits but I found the lead actor, can't remember his name (not Dylan Moran), really annoying.

    rented an Icelandic flilm called "Mırin" the other day, pretty good compact thriller/mystery, also rented "The Strangers", very high in suspense, but it disappointed.

    I watched Once a couple of weeks ago. It was pretty good (with that sort of description I should be a film critic ).

    I really says something about a film though when the Rock is the best part of it. The only film I've ever walked out of. Absolutely, diabolically unfunny.

    Awesome film. Although I don't buy into a lot of the Disney drug references conspiracies, 'A Whole New World' has got to be about hallucinogenics no?

    Just finished watching No Country For Old Men (thank you 90 day free Lovefilm trial!) and have to say, it's one of the best films I've ever seen. Kept me gripped the whole way through, terrific performances and beautifully, beautifully shot.

    Have The Good the Bad and the Ugly, Wicker Man and Rear Window piled up on my desk at the moment. Which should I watch tonight? (I'm leaning towards the first)

    I hope you've watched A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More before though.. You can't be watching The Good the Bad and the Ugly before seeing those!

    Watched 1408 with John Cusack. Thought it was great for an hour, creepy, and good story, then it just got all supernatural and it just wasn't scary anymore. My wife was spooked for an hour, cushion hiding the screen, then she just threw it away for last half hour. Big let down I thought..

    I'm not being sarcastic (this once), but that sounds like the single simplest most definitive review of a film. A bit like that "short story" attributed to Hemmingway - a competition was held for complete stories no more than six words long, which Hemmingway won with the simple and heartbreaking "For sale. Baby boots. Never used".

    My favourite (prior to this, and I really must see Get Smart that I might personally ensure the veracity of the review) was this similar effort on Snakes on a Plane: "Snakes on a Plane starring Samuel L. Jackson" - it tells you everything - plot, event and character - about the film. And, in fairness to the film, it lives up to the review.

    Anyway, I'm doing a Nouveau Bond day on Sunday with a new house mate to be Lunch, Casino Royale, and then off to the local cinema for A Quantum of Solace. I'll attempt to keep to the one sentence review structure so admirably advance by Bald Student, but I doubt I'll be able to be as successful (if you have read almost ANY of my posts, you'll understand).
    That question was less stupid, though you asked it in a profoundly stupid way.

    Help me, Arthur Murphy, you're my only hope!
