    Phone Booth is now available on dvd I was thinking of buying and would like to know what people thought to the film.
    I was also thinking of buying

    Daredevil some people here have said it is rubbish

    Gangs of New York

    Just Married

    How to loose a guy in 30 days or whatever it is called

    Final Destination 2

    Shanghai Knights

    bringing Down the House

    Old school

    Which of them lot would you recomen or what other new films do you recomen. I like action films or thrillers some comedy is ok but prefer thrillers, action and horror when I am watching it on home cinema.

    I like films like training day, the others, minority report, driven that sort of film. I have not bought any films for a while prefer buying films I have not seen. I love the die hard films, terminator and back to the future oh and road kill.

    Shanghai Knights. - Shangai Noon is better, don't bother with Knights.

    Although wouldn't buy Shanghai Noon/Knights, IMO

    Look around for older JC films (Drunken Master, Snake in Eagles Shadow, Wheels on meals, Operation Condor etc)

    Would you not recomend Phone Booth and Gangs of new York? Is daredevil really that bad.
    I have about 100 dvd films but last film I bought was James bond I think or Darkness Falls.

    I really hate Ben Affleck. He can't act to save his life. Daredevil is supposed to be really bad, I haven't seen it, but a mate with the same tastes as me (basically like the same films) said it's awful.

    I guess if you like Day Another Day you're not that picky! :)

    That mate agrees with this review on Daredevil!

    I just done a search and seems a lot of people liked Phone Booth. I have looked at the dvd and it has no extras but I buy a disk for the film not the extras.

    I liked Phone Booth a lot. DareDevil was ok, mainly because Jennifer Garner was in it though.

    Is the fog and Dagon worth buying?

    Old School had me in stitches especially Will Ferrel, who I think must be some sort of genuine nutcase.

    Daredevil is a darker version of Spider-Man, as Batman is to Superman.

    What puts me off about Phone Booth is that there's no extras, and it's only 81 minutes long. Not exactly what you might call value for money.

    It might be a good film, but it's one I'll rent . ;)

    I enjoyed Dagon and would recomend it if you like that type of film you might also like to give She Creature a go as well. The effects are done by the effects wizard Stan Winston .
