Re: Rate the last movie you've seen out of ten

Oh good question,

I went to see the new movie of Wuthering Heights a couple of weeks back. 

0/10.  As with ST above, I'd give it a negative score if I could .

It takes a certain genius to turn one of the greatest achievements of English literature, a gothic romance of staggering power and passion into a gut achingly dull and boring  film.  Pretentious movie making designed to impress critics rather than tell a story has produced the emperor's new movie. (I didn't like it very much).

7/10 - Jane Eyre.  By contrast a pretty decent take on a classic

9/10 TT3D  Closer to the Edge.  An absolutely brilliant, human film, less about motorbike racing than about the people who go motorbike racing.

Days of Glory - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Days_of_Glory_(2006_film)

10/10.

Superb story of the part played by brave volunteer Muslim Tunisian, Moroccan and Algerian soldiers in the French Army's allied effort to defeat the Nazis, Alhamdullilah.

A very moving story and well worth watching.

I bought mine for £1.99 from Junction 32 outlet at Castleford, West Yorkshire, but I found this rental link which I think is a mainstream outfit -

I saw that as well it was on Film4....... it was PANTS!!!!

Transformers 3, it was ok, I enjoyed it from visual effects point of view, it was one of those films where you just go along for ride and try not to think too much.

Also saw Bad Teacher recently..... Rubbish!!

Stardust last night on the tv (dog had an op, stuck in doors, I have seen it before), actually even though the story isn't as good as the book, it is more dramatic, Skye looks wonderful, and its good, I'd give it 9/10 minus 1 for Ricky Gervais so 8/10

The Inbetweeners movie. Very funny in parts, but i found the plot very predictable. Enjoyed it though, 8/10.

I actually enjoyed Stardust. De Niro is great as the transvestite pirate.

The best quote, though is: "Do you know, Humphrey's going all the way to Ipswich to buy me a ring?"

Made me laugh (but that's probably only because I live five miles from Ipswich).

Oh yes, De Niro is fantastic as the transvestite pirate, 'We always knew you were a whoopsie, Sir'

Mostly great films, But top 10? ..

Where's The Shawshank redemption? The Godfather? Die Hard or Jaws?

 

As far as christmas films go, Frank Capra's "It's a Wonderful Life" is a proper seasonal masterpiece

Godfather - probably number 11

Die Hard - naahh bruce willis in a vest just doesn't do it for me.

Jaws - significant - yes for creating the summer blockbuster phenomenon (is this good ?) but great movie - nah

And as for its a wonderful life.

I hadn't seen it until a couple of years ago, when I sat down expecting a real treat

Cheddar Wensleydale Caerphilly Lancashire Cheshire Gouda Edam Y Fenni Jarlsberg Comte Parmesan Mozarella, Stilton Double Gloucester, Red leicester, Brie, Camembert, Roquefort, sage Derby, Dovedale, Stinking Bishop, Gorgonzola, Danish Blue, Emmenthal, Gruyere

I was so diappointed, I couldn't believe what a massive cheese fest it was.  I'm really sorry because I know alot of people love it but it really didn't touch me at all.

 

The history is quite interesting. It was a biyt of a flop in cinemas, but then American TV networks got it cheap and played it and played it until it built up its current status.

I love Princess Bride.. Brilliant, brilliant film.. But better than Jaws,  Fight Club or The Matrix?

And that's leaving aside films like StarWars and Back to the Future (which appeal most to a certain age group).

 

Yeah, It's a Wonderful Life is pure cheese (The person hyping it should have let you know that before you watched).. but it is still one of the best xmas films of all time.
