Films that exceeded your expectations
Yeah, but it’s a contraversial choice. I fully expected ‘attack the block’ to be absolutely awful but it wasn’t half bad to be honest.
Moving on, after the absolutely god-awful bat man series of films, I fully expected the dark knight to be utter bilge and yet… it totally blew me away. Who played batman, I can’t remember, who played the joket? Heath Ledger, ..absolutelyt stunning performancxe and totally owned the film. I was entranced. That guy could act!Posted 5 years ago
^^^ I dont know . Personally I thought It was stunning , deemed as a Brazillian ‘Trainspotting’ but I thought so much better and not In many ways **** all like Trainspotting. In my mind well written , stunningly shot and a great soundtrack and I actually felt for the characters unline many popular films.Posted 5 years agoWillHMember
Black Swan. Thought it’d be worth putting up with a chick flick to earn some brownie points, but was thoroughly amazed. I’m an emotional retard and am almost never moved by films, but that is one powerful film. I couldn’t even say what emotion it elicited, it was just powerful.Posted 5 years agoKing-ocelotMember
The Sweeny. expected it to be crap especially after what I had been told by friends. It was crap, but was enjoyable trashy no brainer crap. If I had watched it with high expectations I would have been disappointed though.
Snow White & the Huntsmen. Nephew chose this I palmed it off as rubbish based on the fact it was a 12 & had that miserable looking vampire girl in it. Really enjoyed it, it reminded me of Willow. The big white deer reminded me of something I saw in a studio ghibli film.Posted 5 years agocolournoiseSubscriber
+another for Apocalypto. Way better than it has any right to be.
For me though it’s Moulin Rouge. Hated Strictly Ballroom, tolerated Romero & Juliet so went to see it under duress. At the end of the running time I had a new ‘top 5 films ever’ entrant.
Having seen Django Unchained recently and also loving that, I’m realising more and more that I just love films that are about loving cinema.Posted 5 years agovinnyehSubscriber
Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
Lots of worthies up above, but on a more mundane level, if some reason it’s advisable for you to sit through a rom com, I’d recommend this one, even though Russell Brand grates on me dearly.
Oh, and Hot Tub Time Machine. With a name like that how can it be anything but utter crap, but really quite enjoyed it.Posted 5 years ago
