Going off topic from films a bit here but Breaking Bad series was brilliant, I thought. I have the whole series on dvd. Took a while to get through the whole lot but it was addictive.
Another good one is Sherlock. UK tv series.
One that I tried to get into but I just couldn't hack it was The Wire. I watched the first 3 or 4 but I really thought it was rubbish. Maybe it gets better as it goes on. It had some good reviews but I just didn't like it.
I like Idris Elba. He was good in a UK tv series called Luther.
You thought Breaking Bad was addictive?? ahahahahahahahahaha Well who could of seen that one coming I know what you mean about addictive Kayak. I'm watching, "I AM CIGARETTES" Its about a bunch of people sitting around smoking. I can't stop watching. I think its distributed by the Phillip Morris Agency, but don't quote me.
ANNOUNCEMENT; (I don't know if its gonna be a favorite). HBO is releasing a movie at the Sundance Film Festival called, "Going Clear". Its all about Scientology. I wonder what John Travolta and Tom Cruise are going to say about it??
--- Thanks for the info RonaldJosephCote. Yes that sounds like a very interesting film.
"Birdman" & "Still Alice" won at the S.A.G. awards last night.
Someone's making a re-make of "Ghostbusters" with an all female cast.
--- Thanks for the info RonaldJosephCote.
In one of my other threads I recently mentioned that TV Guide has a special issue out about the Titanic. I've just been watching the Movie " Titanic " ( by James Cameron ), not a bad little film lol.
Earlier the name of Ernest Borgnine came up in my thread on TV shows. The other day I happened to be watching an old movie with Borgnine in the cast ( it was " The Flight Of The Phoenix " ). Borgnine could of course handle serious roles as well as being very good at doing comedies too.
I just watched, "The Loft". It was good but MAN, did it have some twist & turns in it. Put your seat belt on for THAT one. Every 5 mins I found myself saying; "I didn't see That coming"!.
--- Thanks for the post RonaldJosephCote. I have not seen that one yet, sounds quite interesting.
Thanks for the new post.
Recently the subject of Golf came up in one of my other threads and that reminded me of a good Adam Sandler movie. Yes I liked " Happy Gilmore " where Sandler completely destroyed the game of Golf ( I've got find my video of that film, I'd like to watch that one again ).
Last night at 3am I was watching "The Grey" with Liam Neesom on TNT. I would get 3 minutes of the movie and then 19 commercials. Then 3 mins of the movie and 19 more commercials. Ok, MY mistake. NEVER watch movies on TNT at 3am. The movie is 2 fold. You have the cosmedic story, about 5 guys who survive a plane crash in the mountains, only to find themselves surrounded by wild wolves. But the real message of the movie is religious. At the end, a moment crystalizes for Liam and how we face death seems to be the reason why this movie was made. Even the name hints at it. Life is self explanatory, death?...heh... Its a "Grey" area. I give it 4 and a half stars. Let me say 1 more thing about Liam. He's an excellent actor. But as you know, he's made a series of "Taken" movies. Taken 1. Taken 2. Taken 3. He's now doing, "Run All Night". The title is a rip off. WHY IS IT NOT CALLED TAKEN 4 ?? The 1st one, his daughter is taken. The 2nd one, his wife is taken. The 3rd one, HE'S taken. Now, this one, his son is taken and they run all night from bad guys and killers. He's made the SAME movie over 10 yrs. I liked him in "Non-Stop" BTW. He plays an air marshall looking for a killer on an airplane.
--- Thanks for the post RonaldJosephCote.
Yes it seems that all Stars make films that may not be of the best quality. I mean think of Charlton Heston in the " Planet Of The Apes " films which were fun to watch but nowhere near the quality of " Ben Hur " or " El Cid ", etc.
I just finished watching "John Wick" with Keanu Reeves. Its a standard good guy bad guy movie. The body count is 50 or 60. Keanu plays a legendary assasin who has retired. He checks into a hotel that only houses professional assasins, and everybody is all very polite. He kills 3 guys in the hallway. Another tenant who hears the commotion steps out of his room, and says; "Oh hi John, you working again?" "No, just taking out the trash". "Ok, we'll see you later". Then he kills 15 people at his house. The police show up at the front door. He opens the door. "Oh, evening John. You working again?" "No, just taking care of some loose ends" "Alright, try to keep the noise down, we're getting complaints" and they leave. The whole movie's like that. You can kill people, as long as you do it with manners... That's why in the previews, he says the line; "Everybody keeps asking me if I'm back?....I'm thinking, yeah, I'm Back".
Bruce Willis is in "Vice" Its a variation of "Westworld" with Yul Brynner.
I just watched "GONE GIRL" with Ben Afleck. Wow! Glad I don't live next to THOSE people! Careful who you marry.
RonaldJosephCote: Thanks for the new posts and for the info on those movies.
Recently we lost Lenard Nomoy of course and I just happened to locate my copy of " Star Trek - The Motion Picture ". I watched it again the other day and I do still like the film. When it first came out some people said that the plot was a bit slow but the film does have good special effects so I think that it is okay for Star trek fans.
Here's one I'll give 5 stars to. "Kill The Messenger" starring Jeremy Renner. Its the true story of journalist Gary Webb. He connected the dots and wrote about the C.I.A's involvment with selling crack cocaine to finance the Iran-Contra war during R.Reagan's presidency. No blood. Just a good story.
I just watched an old film that was created out of paranoia. It is a Comedy that came out of the Cold-war and is entitled " The Russians Are Coming - The Russians Are Coming ". Carl Reiner, Alan Arkin, Brian Keith, Jonathan Winters, Theodore Bikel and Paul Ford are among the stars in this cute and funny movie.
