I've just watched...
 
Thought of a new idea where we can share the films we've just seen, a bit like the "stuck in my head" music thread.

Just got around to watching American Gangster. Directed by Ridley Scott and stars Russell Crowe / Denzel Washington.

Thought the acting was supreme, cinematography good and the plot enduring through to the end. Watch the Extended Unrated version if you can. It's an interesting insight into the true story of Frank Lucas, a black american who fuelled a drug empire larger than the Mafia. Highly recommended.

Feel free to share your latest viewing no matter what age. Recommend or poop, thought it'd be a good idea. Try to avoid spoilers though :)

Absolutely loved that film, and Denzel and Russel played there parts amazingly well.

I've just watched Babylon A.D. and actually really enjoyed it. Set several years in the future where countries have collapsed, and new religions have risen. Toulouk (I think thats his name) must protect and deliver a young woman to New York, where details of her story/uniqueness are told along the way.

Of course Vin Diesel is playing the same old role, but that isn't a bad thing as I feel in this film he has done it great justice. Action scenes are pretty good, and the story is pretty involving. I especially like the portrayal of the world of the future, only a few years i know but something about it feels more believable then all that otehr tripe out there.

Oh and I also watched Planet Terror, but I can't be ****d to say anything about that film as I need to hit the hay.

Step Brothers

Not bad tbh. Silly in parts and highly disturbing humour on occasion. Killer lols at Will Ferrell's and John C Reilly sleepwalking acting. Had me in fits. It was either this or Disaster Movie and I'd never see that in a million years.

The Interpreter. It was a good watch as I ate my tea and let it settle! :P

Not the best thriller I've seen, but wasn't that bad and probably worth a watch if you're into thrillers.

IMDB: The Interpreter

Last night I watched Sleepy Hollow for the first time... amazing, if somewhat over-bloody.

I was IDed when I bought it too. I lol'd.

yah, I hear what you are saying.

The CGI bukkake scenes are just not realistic at all.

That's CGI? I thought that tidal wave was real!

POSTAL is classss love it and love the game

Transporter 3 - Same old mindless Jason Statham. Not as good as the previous two.

Vantage Point - A story told from various perspectives that keeps you guessing until the end. Typical thriller goodness, and a pretty smart script to boot. I'd recommend this.

Flash of Genius - True stories always make good films (generally) as do underdog stories. The man behind the modern windscreen wiper reckons Ford stole his patents. It's an interesting story that's fairly engaging.

Can this be for TV shows as well?

I've just watched the pilot for Better Off Ted and it's the funniest thing I've seen for ages. The last thing that made me laugh out loud like this one was the first series of Coupling.

Been working my way through Babylon 5 recently, currently at season 2 episode 20 and it's quickly becoming one of my favourite series.

Film wise, watched Freaked earlier which is hilarious.
