What was the last film you watched?


#807

Just watched The Commuter as it was £3.50 on sky store. Decent film for a Saturday night.

Basically the train version of non stop :joy:


#808

Watched birdbox last night, thought it was alright not amazing but not awful.


#809

Yeah I watched Bird Box the other day too. I thought it was The Walking Dead condensed into 2 hours


#810

I’m watching it later, is it scary :eyes:


#811

I didn’t find it scary, however the girlfriend did but then we did have all the lights turn off and watch dit in the dark. I’d say it’s more creepy than scary.


#812

I thought it was moderately scary but I’m a bit of a pussy when it comes to scary films.

I didn’t sleep properly for about a week after watching Paranormal Activity as my imagination went wild - I lived in fear that I would hear a demonic scream in the middle of the night, or that my door would slam shut / open randomly.

To give a more precise answer, if PA is a 10/10 in terms of scariness, I’d rate Birdbox as a 4 or 5 on Sol’s certified “shit-you-up” rating system. Hope that helps.


#813

Yeah Paranormal Activity is right up there when it comes to “shit-your-pants” scary


#814

I won’t be watching that ever. My then boyfriend watched all those (I refused) and joked about setting up the whole video recording the bedroom at night thing just in case. At least I think that’s what it was about :speak_no_evil:


#815

Bird Box had crazy potential and it builds you up to having a high expectation of something really good happening and it ends up just being a bit underwhelming.


#816

Yeah, the first Paranormal Activity shit me up good and proper.

The effect kinda wore off when I saw the second one and I didn’t watch any of the others.


#817

That bit where she gets out of bed and just stands and stares at her hubby makes me shudder even as I type it.

Watch the 3rd one. The one with “Toby”. After that, they get a bit “samey”


#818

Another vote for the paranormal activity shit me right up :rofl:

It’s prob because there’s more chance of that being a real situation, but yeah pissed my pants at that :eyes:


#819

I was practically levitating during the the kitchen scene, when all the unit doors slam shut :sweat_smile: that was at the cinema too, so the noise was just ridiculous.

I watched Annihilation last night. Again, skirts along 5/10 for scariness, more so for a bit of gore, but the story itself was more creepy than anything. Got a bit of a Signs vibe towards the end. Not bad.


#820

Stan and Ollie
The acting of these two greats was just fantastic. Time and time again I was Amazed by Coogans attention to detail on mannerisims of Stan Laurel.
A very worthy film to 2 legends of comedy. Would say though read one of many great books on them for a fuller picture.
Really enjoyed it and give it a nine out of ten.


#821

Think I’m going to have to see it this weekend!


#822

Saw it this morning. Great acting performances.

8/10


#823

Just watched Bird Box, didn’t think it was too bad overall, quite suspenseful in places and a good premise but didn’t really deliver on the hype. 6/10 for me.

Probably the sort of thing that lends itself better to a mini series rather than just a 2 hour film.

Want to watch Bandersnatcher soon, anyone seen it?


#824

Watched AqauMan…
Jezz… Nicole Kidman is still gorgeous… freaking gorgeous.


#825

Yeah, I personally thought it was a bit wank and confusing.

I suppose it is the first thing of its kind but still was expecting a lot better.


#826

Just seen it now, proper weird isn’t it :face_with_raised_eyebrow: It’s the sort of concept I’d like to see more of tho. 7/10

What’s up with that ending where it’s revealed to be a film scene and he has the option of fighting his therapist :smile::see_no_evil:
