Forum regular bevvy far preferred it to Shaun of the Dead. The BM bit was particularly funny. Yes, the film is is gory, but only in a slapstick kind of way. A good night out. 8/10 from me What did you think of the film? Share your thoughts on the forum, and don’t forget to Read more about Zombieland[…]
Word on the forum is generally negative. Says jupe17: Didn’t like it one bit… very tiring, very unfunny and overstayed its welcome by a good 15-20 minutes Read more comments and discuss!
I saw this film at a free preview at the Cineworld Haymarket in London, which is one of the most beautiful cinemas I have ever seen. Screen 1 looks more like a theatre, with stalls and circle and little pews. I don’t think there is a bad seat in the place.
It’s back! After a super-early preview screening in the capital, Pixar’s latest is to be shown across the country ahead of its October release. Why not read Beate’s great review, and as always read more thoughts and submit your own on the forum.
Hot off the first preview, chrivic reports: There is no doubt that it is all very well done, written/acted etc. I thought it could have been a little shorter but then I’ve been really tired today after a late night last night. It gets a healthy 7/10 from me but on balance I prefer Saturday Read more about Julie & Julia[…]
mdweaver says: I found it all a bit arty-farty. There were a couple of funny bits, his parents at the start, and the fruit cake “cousin” and her family, but was quite bored by the end. No more than 6/10. Discuss this film on the forum
Tarantino’s tense latest delighted the majority of forum members, the first of which to review the film (nintendo) said: saw this 2day, 10/10 film of the year for me great dialogue as is always the case with Tarantino films, and a fantastic blend of comedy, drama and action. Quite gruesome in places but it fits Read more about Inglourious Basterds[…]
If you are going to see this on 1st September, you might appreciate what some forum members thought of it on 17th August. For all past previews starting now, I’ll be publishing the first review posted on the forum… Says Ms Thrifty: I thought this was a pleasant, if undistinguished teen movie and an enjoyable Read more about Adventureland[…]
Dilemma: on the one hand there’s Judd Apatow, Comedy King of Hollywood, bringing along his usuals (Rogen, Hill and real-life wife Leslie Mann) and two talented actors new to his world, but not new to comedy – Schwartzman, hilarious in I Heart Huckabees and due to break out with a mysterious role in next year’s Scott Pilgrim if this film doesn’t do it first, and Eric Bana who apparently began his career in sketch comedy. On the other hand, there’s Adam Sandler.
I went into this film having neither seen Ali G nor Borat, just the trailer for Bruno (which didn’t make me think much of it). The previews on 30 June were high security, I got photo ID-checked five times on my way to the screen at West India Quay (and back from the loo which I dared to visit before the film started), and other people throughout the UK have reported the same. Despite all the security and SeeFilmFirst having stuffed up sending email confirmations, the film was packed and everyone was in a good mood, you could hear raucous laughter along “no way!” comments throughout.
Most people didn’t like Death Proof, Quentin Tarantino’s segment of 2007’s double bill Grindhouse. Personally I liked the film and I’m sure I would have loved it if I had grown up during the era of exploitation flicks it faithfully replicated. At any rate, the only real complaint you hear is that it was ‘boring’. So QT has stepped up to win back his fans with what looks like a hugely enjoyable ride, Inglourious Basterds (yes, its meant to be spelt that way), due out in August. Trailer after the jump… […]
The Hangover is a Vegas-set comedy about a bachelor party gone very, very wrong. It’s also possibly FMUK’s favourite comedy of the year, received very enthusiastically even by those who would usually steer clear of cruder comedies. […]
