Let's have a films thread.

Not quite sure what category this comes under .... I suppose comedy/horror .... but certainly funny and strange!

 

The Greasy Strangler ..... well worth a watch.

Ok the subject of horrors, but not shit ones....... I rewatched The Exorcist the other day for about the 8th time and I still think it’s probably the best film ever made. Sucks me in every time. X

Exorcist III is a very under rated sequel

Get ta feck!! It's a great film. 

 

The Sharknado series fit the bill for this category. Not that I've seen any of them myself but people seem to like how shit they are.

I agree! That scene in the hospital is probably the greatest jump scare ever made.

Bit of a stretch I would say, its a decent watch, but in a sort of guilty pleasure way, for me at least :dunno:

@Alf Bentley Thanks for all the recommendations. 

 

Watched "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" this morning and was arguably the best of the lot for me - the dialogue is incredible.

Finally got round to watching American Psycho.

 

Really expected better, I thought it was meant to be a bit of a cult classic? Bale was good but the whole thing was a complete mess, no pun intended.

Green Book is well worth a watch its a quite heartwarming story based on real life characters directed by Peter Farrelly of the Farrelly brothers fame, it surprised me when I saw he’d directed it, I love Kingpin, There’s Something about Mary etc but this is something completely different.

It’s funny, the first time I saw it was on a geography field trip when I was about 16. There were about 30 of us watching it and everyone was kinda laughing at it and it didn’t seem scary at all. Two or three years later at uni it was on tv one night so I wanted it again, alone in my room, and fvcking shit myself. Since then have rewatched it lots of times and it’s just almost a perfect film. Mark Kermode always sites or as his favourite and I think I agree with him. X

Spike Lee didn't like it.

My offering........

 

Troy. X 

Alien v Predator. Any of them. Bad bad films but man do they draw me in. The thought of 2 of the most aggressive and insatiable galactic empires waging a shadow kinda war on earth. Love it.

7500 - Brand new on Prime. An American co-pilot on a Berlin to Paris flight has to deal with an attempted hijacking. Very tense thriller that doesn't leave the cockpit. Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I enjoyed it.

 

The Laundromat - On Netflix. Basically about the Panama Papers scandal and how it affects innocent civilians. Meryl Streep, Gary Oldman, Antonio Banderas, David Schwimmer, Jeffrey Wright. Enjoyable.
