Found 19th Jun 2009
I'm on my own this evening, so looking for something to watch..anything good out there currently? I can't remeber the last film I watched that I actually thought was pretty good. They all seem rubbish lately.

Action, sci-fi, thriller genres preferred, no romantic comedies please

Supposed to be awful?? Trailer looks a bit of a joke - they all have english/american accents!!
Thats a possibility, might be a bit heavy though for a Friday flick?

We've gotten a bit backed up on films since we had a child (now 2 and a half), so it's a bit hit and miss as to what we've seen..

How about an oldie that you haven't seen as you seem to have seen all the recent stuff (or don't want to watch it)

defiance is a great film, amazing stuff. my misses even said it was one of the best films she has seen in a long time, and i have to force her to watch any sort of war film. and watch all the extra/ bonus stuff as well.
gran torino is also very good.

bit older but the departed?
lucky number slevin?
Fantastic films....!

Grand Torino is really good. One of Clints best imo

Eagle Eye
The International
Seven Pounds

Seen x 3.

hmmnn, seems I've seen a fair bit, lol.

What Dreams May Come, one of my favourites.


Just read, you don't want heavy, well it don't get much heavier on that.


Role Models?

Dunno about more recent films, but what about the pursuit of happyness?

Or how about watching Terminators 1,2 & 3 then dragging your missus to see the new one tomorrow??

hahah, i've been trying to do that since it came out a few weeks ago (seeing the new one, not rewatching the other 3)

Is Gran Torino only available to rent at the moment or can you buy it. I heard it was released on the 15th but then i seen it was moved to the 29th!

Pan's Labyrinth?

Just watch a classic. For me it would be Indianna Jones.

Definately Gran Torino, rented exclusively from Blockbuster

best film I've seen all year by a mile

I thought pride and glory was rotten, my bloody valentine was decent in 3-D, but most of that was down to the novelty factor I think. Not seen the rest, sorry!!

Star Trek is awesome, a must watch even if you don't really like the ST series.

For those that have seen Gran Torino... is it a pure drama movie, or is there any action in it? Clint seems a bit old to be doing his spin off Dirty Harry character still!
