    Hi,

    - Watched Bad Boys II, at over 2hours, this film is average to say the least.

    - Pumping Iron 25th Anniversary Ed. , great to see arnie trying to riducule Lou Ferringo. Great extras, and interviews. A must have.

    What do you mean, 'your point being', this is dvd talk, and im letting you know my opinion on these dvds, as i have done for the past 9 months.

    Pretty simple to understand, don't you think?.

    I was just hoping you would elaborate why you felt that Bad boys II was "average". I'm all for cutting to the chase but your post wasn't all that helpfull that's all.

    Hi Hawklord,

    Yeah sorry, people do not always go into why they like or dislike a film. So i kept it real short. I felt it was not better than the original. Seen this kind of drug baron story so many times.

    The film was done by the numbers, car chases, explosives, etc, ok, thats what you expect from a film like this, but i was expecting more originality, different story would of help.

    I love the look of these Michael Bay films, the PQ was ace, lovely colours. Ace direction. The stunts were good, but seeing T3 and Maxtrix 2, they did not seem anything special.

    I would of liked to see a darker story, maybe a villian after one of them, and much more tension, was there tension in BB2?. Can't think of anything more at the moment.

    If you want tension and a plot with as many twists as a shag pile rug catch any of the 24 series dvd's.

    Other thrillers that I have on dvd that are definately worth a look (if you haven't already) are:-

    I've tried to pick the more obscure ones that you may not have seen:)

    PTU (asian cop drama about a gun)
    Roadkill
    Confidence
    Identity (You'll be thinking what the fudge is going on)
    Intact (You'll never think about luck in the same way again)
    Session 9
    PI
    Frailty


    there's hopefully a few there you've not seen:smashin:
