- Good films recently
I’m a bit out of the loop, and have a comprehensive selection of movies to choose from for tonight’s viewing… what have people seen recently that’s good – I like most genres from arty indie stuff to thrillers / “tense-making” as my wife would put it… not so keen on explosive-laden blockbusters. Thoughts?Posted 4 years agostilltortoiseSubscriber
The latest Mission: Impossible is ACE! Good old fashioned full-on action from start to finish. Cheesy but I had a goofy grin on my face from start to finish and usually I get bored easily with modern “blockbuster” cinema. As good if not better than the original Cruise outing and Rebecca Ferguson is lovely.
If you want a thriller you could do a lot worse than The Gift.Posted 4 years ago
ok, so I went for Kingsman – definitely enjoyable, cleverly done although typically for Matthew Vaughan a bit OTT, a lot of style over substance and not quite as clever as it thinks it is… Still, worth a watch. 3/5.
For the record, of those I’ve seen above I’d say:
Dallas Buyers Club: 4.5/5
Grand Budapest: 4/5.
Some more to add to the list, anyway – cheers all!Posted 4 years ago
Ok, another one to add – just watched Unfriended on the train, pretty good – a lot more graphic and slasher style than I expected or realised, clever set up and a bit Blair Witchy in its novel setting / presentation. , All in all a clever twist on that type of film… Good stuff, 3.5/5.Posted 4 years agoyunkiMember
I’m no film buff and will only too happily go a couple of years or more without sitting in front of the box, but I’ve had a few recommendations recently that I enjoyed..
Grand Budapest hotel is an obvious one, but for a better movie on the same theme try The Darjeeling Ltd..Posted 4 years ago
The intouchables is great..
Anything with Danny McBride is good for genuine lols..

Just did a search to check whether anyone had already mentioned in….but just watched Whiplash.
I was not expecting it to be that good at all, trying to sell it to mrs PF as I read the description wasn’t easy.
The final scene has to be one of my favourites in a long time.
Definitely recommended.Posted 4 years ago
