Re: The Two Faces of January

I saw this in the local Odeon, which was almost deserted (7 people in total). The earlier posts are a bit Marmite about this film - like it or hate it. Overall, I thought it was good - 7/10 at least. I would like to read the book, as the ending seemed too obvious and moral for Patricia Highsmith. I ...

Re: The Liability

Found this shallow, limited, boring, stereotyped. And inappropriate for a 15 rating - strong language, strong violence and sexual violence. (Snuff movie?) Just as well I did not take the old neighbour as the use of the c-word was substantial. Disappointing at so many levels. 3.5/10. Who would have t...

Re: Bernie

Oh dear, what a poor film. However, had some sympathy for Bernie, as I might have put four bullets in the noisy people behind us if I had had an armadillo rifle...

Re: Love Is All You Need

Just my sort of film, a Rom Com for Pensioners Well, it was clear that this was the Telegraph screening, as it was one of the few screenings where I have been one of the youngest! The commentary - or questions about the bits they had missed - from some elderly members of the audience at other side ...

Re: The Place Beyond the Pines

Saw this last night - no freebie screenings for us in Yorkshire. Didn't actually 'get' Blue Valentine (got completely confused at times), so was worried that I would have similar problems here. But this was absolutely gripping - and as others have said - not what I expected from the trailer. It was ...

Re: Side Effects

Watched yesterday with Steve9872 and my friend Helen. (Thanks to Times 2-4-1, and Odeon points.) This was a really good film. It shifted over the film - a good thing - and kept live and kept people guessing. Jude Law, when he is good as he was here, is so very human and real, and you 'feel for him'....

Re: The Book thread

Oops, I meant Gone Girl. But I've also read C.A though it's been years. Reese Witherspoon has b*ght the rights to GG but, praise the film gods, won't be starring. Haha, yes, definitely sticking with GG. I saw today RW b*ght rights to it and am with you on her not starring being a good thing. Emily ...

Re: Jack Reacher

Saw this tonight with Steve9875, who clearly enjoyed it. Tom Cruise was so-o-o wrong for this. Just dire. I'd have walked out if I had been on my own. The camera angles shifted all the time to try and fool the audience - how dumb do they think we are? (Big people move differently - my dad was a big ...
