I just popped into town and went into W H Smiths and noticed they have a deal on buy 1 dvd film get antother half price. I was tempted to buy Bourne Identity and Spiderman though i also like men in black box set and Lord of the Rings 4 disc set was good value though i dont like the film much only seen it once at cinema.

I was also thinking og buying Monsters Ball as i have said in a previous thread. I am gettign jackass and hopefully 8 mile this week. I had not bought a film for a while but last few weeks been buying quite a few

Crazy.

Watched The Road to Perdition this weekend. That is a very good film. I would suggest it to anyone even if they were not stuck for films to get.

BTW. The DTS soundtrack is mind blowing.

I bought to the Road to Perdition about 2 weeks ago i enjoyed the film but slow to start. I thought the sound was superb when the shootings were going on espeically the machine gun near the end.

A couple of older one's but I also watched Ghost Dog and Planet of the Apes. They were both very good as well. Enjoyed Planet of the Apes a lot more than I was expecting too.

memento (on sale hmv £9)

this is a very good and unusual thriller.
The movie is played in reverse.
imagine a book , it plays the chapters in reverse.
its kind of tricky to follow at first.

but on the dvd , theres a feature that will play the movie
in sequence.

obviously do this for the second viewing.

a good film and worth buying.

I think this is only on the R1 version. Not 100% on it though.

Don't wanna sound to negative but....men in black 2 is naff. Only about 20mins long with an atrocious story. I don't think tommy jones and will smith are at all convincing together in this film. Monsters ball errr, naff. although you get to see halle berry (and I mean see her) the story is pretty weak.
Bourne identity is good but I like those cia, fbi secret people type films. Spiderman is ok as well but one that I'd only watch once.
I find the best place to go is 'music zone' . I don't know if you have one near you but the prices are reasonable and the blockbuster favourites of yesteryear are about a tenner.
Over the last few weeks I got the Rambo trilogy £10 each. Terminator 2 £10 'let him have it' £5 not bad pricesI reckon.:rolleyes:

Also worth adding Das Boot - R1 Superbit to the list if you fancy a very tense and gripping film, superb stuff!

Watch the german track in DTS 5.1 though!:smashin:

How can you say the story in Monsters Ball is pretty weak? It's a film tackling a racial issue in the south of America?

I suggest you watch it again and pay more attention. :lesson:

It's a film tackling a racial issue in the south of America?
And your point is? Yes I know it won awards etc etc but that doesn't mean it was particularly good ESPECIALLY as it was about racial issues. Or do you think because of this it should be rated good by everyone? Am I not being politically correct or something?
Did the film makers honestly believe that anybody doesn't know racism exists and we need to be educated about it still, and I'm not sure (although I could be wrong) that this was the sole intention of the film anyway was it?

I have to admit I'm struggling to remember what happened I was so bored by it, but didn't the character played by Billy Thornton actually only get to know the character Halle Berry and therefore realise black folks are the same equal to whites etc etc because he fancied the ar*e off her and not because he decided he may be being just a little narrow minded? Not quite sure if thats a good message to send out myself.

Anyway, I won't be spending anymore of my hard earned on it, and I still stand by my opinion that is was rubbish.

As for the original post."smoke" and "blue in the face" are being released soon. I'll be getting them thanks.

ps please lets not let this post turn into a discussion about race. Theres already one going on about religion. These are 2 topics probably not best discussed here.

"Monster's Ball" is not a plot/story driven movie, it is a character driven piece. Nor is it "about" racial issues. It is about two lonely, emotionally scarred people from vastly differing backgrounds finding comfort in each other.

No car chases, no hit songs, no smart-ass one liners - and it certainly won't give your home cinema speakers a "workout".

If, however, you're one of these strange people who reckons that a well crafted script, sensitive and understated direction, and immaculately observed performances are quite spiffy things to have in a movie, then you might quite like this.

If not may I recommend something by Adam Sandler.

Anything in particular that you recommend. I am not an Adam Sandler fan but am willing to give anything a try if recommended by someone as august as yourself. :rolleyes:

Hi,

One film I watched some time back that I really enjoyed was
Highlander: End Game. It started Lambert and Adrian Paul (from the tv series). I thought it was excellent, and a better follow up to the original.
I might go and buy it now.

Has anyone else seen this and enjoyed it?



regards


rai
