RE: Rate the Last Film You've Seen
Eeeeeh, I don't know to be honest.

For me something that is "fun", when it comes to movies, is something coherent enough for me to follow, yet just a bit of a "romp", like people running about/jokes/action/other stuff you can watch and just turn your brain off.

The 90's version of The Mummy is a good example of this. Whilst the new one can't decide what type of movie it is, from what I've read anyway, and is a blatant set up for this new "Dark Universe" thing they are trying to make happen.

Fun Fact: Dracula Untold was supposed to be the start of the Dark Universe, but was so garbage they said "yeah that's not part of it...get me Tom Cruise and all the
Hollywood people...and my cheque book". Apparently the latest The Mummy is about as good as the aforementioned dracula garbage movie as well.

One that's a few years old. The movie is called Hysteria. The story of the inventor of the first vibrator. Funny comedy.

All hail Dr. Mortimer Granville.

Rewatched:

Shaun of The Dead and it's still really well put together, well written by Pegg/Frost and Directed by Edgar Wright, who might just be on favourite director.

Surprised by how long it's been since it came out, (2004...13 years! shocking), and how well it still holds up. Might re-watch the others in the 'series' as well Smile

I keep waiting for Frost to reprise the role of "Mudd" on the Star Trek movies.

I really like it, 9.5/10. I was expecting the fairy book ending but.. nope. But I really liked it more because it didn't have it, because it left everything sorta.. unwrapped up. It was a far more accurate depiction of life than typical Hollywood movies. Showing that life isn't always a fairy book movie, shit happens and not everything goes how you want it too or is planned. Some things are broken and remain broken.

RE: Rate the Last Film You've Seen
And I'm now officially out of shit to watch.
No shows and no movies. I even rewatched all the Hobbit and LoTR movies...
Even watched some of my ehhh South Korean movies I was putting off watching. The Host, by the way, so not a 6.7 or whatever IMDB gave it.

RE: Rate the Last Film You've Seen
I've been going old school lately, been re-watching films from days gone by, and with "asteroid day" (June 30th) coming up I'm trending more apocalyptic.

Started with "They live" - still a good movie.

Then "The day after" - I remember when they first aired this on television when I was barely a teen...scared the mother loving shit outta me! Was a deeply depressing movie at the time, after re-watching it now and knowing what we know now about nuclear war...it almost feels like an optimistic outcome. Sadcryface

Gonna save "Deep Impact", "Red Dawn" (the original, the remake was just stupid), & "Dr. Strangelove" for June 30th, in the mean time I'm going to re-watch "28 days later"

Any suggestions for good apocalypse movies are welcome, I don't much care about the "graphics" just a good story line. Black & white would be a plus Shy

Shaun of the dead is still in my top ten list of movies. A "Mudd" cameo on the new up coming trek series would be cool too...

RE: Rate the Last Film You've Seen
Beetlejuice Picked this up over the weekend for my daughter to watch, [she randomly loves dark movies like this], and was suprised to see A) how funny/dark it still is and B) how much random swearing there is in it lol. "HEY, NICE FUCKING MODEL!", how do I not remember that? Stupid, random, hilarious and all round still an awesome movie Smile

Also side note:Whilst I know now, for many years I didn't know it was Michael Keaton, who I mainly associated with Batman as a kid. When I found out it was the same guy when I was a teen, it legit blew my mind lol.

RE: Rate the Last Film You've Seen
Transformers: The Last Knight: 2/5 Boring Bay-splosion film. Dialogue is wooden throughout, one character exists solely to provide exposition, and every female character is (as typical for the franchise) sexualized and objectified. Including a scene where a horn dog boy is hitting on a 14 year old girl with purely sexual intent.

Need to think of a witty signature.
