    The Film Thread

    We haven't got one (well, we might have has one before the big server crash) so here's another one.

    Finally saw Inception last Sunday - fantastic stuff. A very complex plot, but I thought it was gripping stuff.

    We now get a free DVD/Blu-ray rental every Sunday, so does anyone have anything they'd recommend? I haven't seen much recently - last time I went to the cinema was to see Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (i.e. not even the latest Harry Potter film) so I've missed out on loads.

    I didn't think that the plot was too complex. the film was far too long IMO/IMV. I did enjoy it nevertheless.

    The last film I saw was The Black Swan. I'm waiting to go and see True Grit.
    Cosy consensus makes for a boring forum.

    If you haven't already seen it I'd recommend the terrific (Swedish original not US remake) 'Let The Right One In', gruesome in parts but a brilliant vampire movie.

    Reviews of this have been outstanding, might be one that makes me drag my ass out to the cinema during half term week.

    I will take cover after posting.

    I've watched the three Twilight films lately and thought they were quite good. The wife had Sky+ the first about 6 months ago and I'd been putting her off watching it and even more so after Squeeze's comments, as I was expecting it to be crap, but I thought they were pretty good.

    Am off to see the fighter tonight and Paul on Wednesday, bit of a cinemathon this week. Heard the fighter is top, and you can't really go wrong with a Simon Pegg film

    One of my favourite films was green mile, though not a great film buff

    Putting it here as it doesn't seem worth another thread, but the BAFTA ceremony has to be the most toe-curlingly bad stuff I have seen in a while. Cues missed all over the place, crap speeches, people forgetting to go to the stage, opening the envelope before the nominations.

    I am pining for Mick Fleetwood and Sam Fox as presenters, I really am....

    Huge film fan, but in my current fucked up mind-set I've got no chance with Inception.

    Watched La Haine today - gripping.

    Fantastic movie. The behaviour by some of the younger French rugby fans in Dublin today was very La Haine-esque to say the least

    Anyone on here seen Chopper?

    Inception is brilliant, worringly i seem to be fond of quite a few Di Caprio films.
    If you see a Possum, try to kill it, 'kay, it's not a pet.

    The Departed was fantastic. I have to say (and I am aware that I will be in a significant minority here) but I preferred it to Goodfellas...
