While i prefer the first 2 RE movies, and Silent Hill was quite well made, even if it could of been more entertaining, i was pleasantly surprised by the Postal movie.

Entertaining throughout, and actually quite funny, certainly not a classic, and maybe my low expectations helped things, but i think it's Uwe Boll's best movie.

On topic with the above, and also the thread, watched this the other night.

Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010)
http://www.*********/title/tt1220634/


After the first 20mins, which is all action and no story, and is as dull as watching paint dry, or even CGI paint dry as there are lots of scenes with CGI swords/blood/bullets.
The whole intro is clearly aimed at those watching 3D, but it just doesn't work in 2D.
It does improve after that, not by much though, but it is at least watchable.

Overall a very poor movie, and by far the worst out of the 4 RE movies.

4/10

I saw Tintin in 3d at the cinema over the weekend. It far exceeded my expectations. Visually it was incredible and it was one of the slickest animated movies I've seen in the way the story was told. You can definitely see the advantages of having a Speilberg/Jackson sized budget. I'd recommend this to anyone who likes the old Tintin comics, anyone who like a good animated movie, any 3d enthusiasts and anyone who just likes a good old fashioned adventure story.

Hey guys.
What in your opinion would be the best movie about submarines.
So far my favorite is "Das Boot". I watched it with subtitles because I do not speak a word of German but still it was amazing.
I also liked U-571.
Anyone can recommend something else please.
Thanks in advance.

I just watched Insidious and i loved it. I knew when the scarie bits was gonna happen, but it still freaked me out anyways. I love them type of films. I give it a 10/10. ............ I want MORE.

I am also so very looking forward to seeing the new Silent Hill film, as its based on the third game.

Watched Sherlock Holmes 2 and i quite liked it. It was the same (maybe a little different) than the 1st one but overall it was quite good and entertaining to watch.

Rating it: 8/10

Greatest film of all time (IMO of course)

The Princess Bride (I'm serious) and not ashamed to say it.



It's amazing and really really not what you think but don't confuse it with The Princess Diaries

I did see Sherlock Holmes: A game of Shadows, Saturday just gone. Liked it a lot, similar to the first one which is a good thing. It was a good watch, still a lot of tongue-in-cheek moments and some cool action. The scene in the trees was very cool.

(Seriously, check out The Princess Bride)

(500) Days Of Summer (2009)



http://www.*********/title/tt1022603/

"An offbeat romantic comedy about a woman who doesn't believe true love exists, and the young man who falls for her."

Pretty nice film, I liked the way the "story" unfolded, soundtrack was a nice bonus too.

9/10

Serenity
The Chronicles of Riddick

Saw Drive a few days back.
Best movie i've seen in ages.
Cars and 80's style synth music do well together.

Also, Kavinsky!

I thought MI4 was bad, like really bad. No story hardly at all, just a (bad) cash cow.
