    Re: Your most recently watched movie/film?

    I really liked Casino Royale, I wasn't too impressed with Quantum of Solace but it's grown on me after a few more watches.

    I like Craig as Bond, I think he's good but they've gone back to formula with Skyfall, it's too self-referential, camp and overblown it's like something Russell T. Davies has written. I loved the low-tech, gritty fights they started with Casino Royale but now it's gone back to ridiculous stuff where the bad guy fires 20,000 rounds at a thin skinned vehicle that Bond's hiding behind before he pops up without a scratch.

    Also, something else that really annoyed me, without going into spoilers, someone gives Bond his father's old 'hunting rifle,' and then they hand him a 12 bore shotgun*. Argh! Javier Bardem was brilliant but the film really pigged me off.

    *Apparently, I'm wrong, it is a rifle - I still think it's a terrible film though!
    I'm almost as annoyed as I was after I went to see Prometheus. Bah!!!!!!!

    I like like Craig as an actor - but not as Bond he always good - but never incredible .

    I think Clive Owen is a far better actor.

    As for Prometheus it can wait .. no rush to see it.

    I really was unhappy with Craig's casting as Bond, though I regarded him a fine actor, I thought it wasn't the right choice for the role. Then I saw him in Munich and changed my mind!

    Ah, Clive Owen - honestly, I think he's got no range - he can do flat or angry and that seems to be about it. I thought he was terrible as King Arthur, good in Inside Man but I always say to my other half that he doesn't need make-up, he needs creosote!

    I hired Prometheus to watch it again, to see if I liked it any better and I really didn't so I wouldn't rush at all!!

    I only have 2 porn films.

    Latest viewing was last night, we watched "Eyes Without a Face" (both of us this time, not just me - Sally only just getting into my line of horror). French made as "Les Yeux Sans Visage" it tells the sad tale of a "mad" doctor's struggle to replace the face of his daughter by grafting on the face of his victims. Rather Hitchcock-esque in some shots, esp the lighting, I really rate this film.

    Going to try Sally with "Les Diaboliques" tonight - a real shocker

    Ted.

    It was funny at times but it wasn't that great. Plots were predictable, characters were predictable as well. It felt like I was watching a movie for kids despite the drugs, swearing and a few nude scenes.

    They Live
    Classic 80's cheese-horror, not the best acting or narrative but its worth seeing for the legendary one liner during the bank scene

    Watched 'Revolver' last night..not the greatest film..the first half was okay, but the second half was just pretentious tripe. Not my cup of tea. 4/10

    I saw Seven Psychopaths last night. Top film with a top cast - Woody Harrelson, Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken, to name but a few. It's from the same guy that directed In Bruges, which itself was a pretty good flick. Anyway, it's a film about a struggling writer (Colin Farrell) who is trying to think of seven psychopaths for his book. Strangely enough, inspiration comes in the shape of some people he meets.

    It's a great film, very funny, lots of blood, guns, gangsters, etc. Almost like a Tarantino film but with more action.

    EDIT: It opens on December 5th. I was lucky enough to see it at the Leeds International Film Festival.

    Watched contraband. Really was rubbish, plot holes, twists you could spot a mile off etc.

    Skyfall - generally enjoyable with a few telegraphed moments, and some schoolboy error IT moments...
