Sicario was intense, with an amazing score.

I also enjoyed The Martian, though the music was all wrong (I thought!)

Missus made me sit through CLOUD ATLAS with her.
Wow.
I didn't think it was possible to make a movie that bad. I was wrong. :rolleyes

GRIMSBY. Sacha Baron Cohen's new movie.
Rude, crude and disgusting in certain parts of the movie.... but if you like that kinda humour, totally hilarious!!! I was crying with laughter thru most of it.

Cruder than Borat. A LOT worse than Ted. NOT a movie take the Mrs along to. One girl in our group almost threw up at the worst point.

That said, it was a terrific twist on spy movies. Plenty of clean jokes too, action scenes, awkward romance scenes, etc. I'll def go see it again with another mate of mine.

Watched Django Unchained tonight. Another brilliant Tarantino film. The 2hr45m goes really quickly.

If you haven't seen Deadpool yet, and you like superhero movies, do it.
The scene where he mentions "International Womens Day" is just... well... unexpected? :rolf:

Deadpool was great. Superb bit of escapism. Loved it.

Bah! Too much Affleck!

I went and saw the new Bats VS Soops movie. Better than the critics are saying.
I know its a big call, but I thought Ben was one of the better Bats we've seen in film so far (and I'm not a fan of Affleck generally)

I agree - it wasn't as shite as the serious reviewers have said. As a fun action movie it's good entertainment. Quite a few plot lines that aren't explored in enough detail or go down dead ends though, but I guess 90% of the audience aren't going along for the plot - at the morning screening I went to yesterday the audience was 8 or 9 adults and about 20 kids under 10 (one group must have been a birthday party because there were 10 kids in that bunch). I thought Affleck did a good job too.

I don't know if anyone's talked about the Revenant yet, but I saw it last night...

What a shocker! I honestly couldn't wait for it to finish and I kind of regret not pulling the pin after an hour like I wanted to.

Once the plot was established, i thought it was just too predictable all the way to the end. I won't spoil it for anybody except to say, don't except any surprises.

I've always been a fan of Leonardo Di Caprio. I've enjoyed a lot of his films but not this one.

I'll give it this though - the scenery was amazing.

Give me a Quentin Tarantino film over this one any day..

Anyone else had similar thoughts about this one?
