Going to watch American Made, looks fun. Not like there’s any football on tonight so there
Ex Machina (2014)
A coder working for a Google-esque internet search company is invited to the boss’ isolated home where he is gifted the opportunity to perform tests on his boss’ latest - very secretive - invention… A hot advanced AI robot chick.
Watched ‘It’ last night, was very good and pretty funny too. The kid actors did a great job.
It’s not out and out horror but still has a few jumpy moments, nice to see that it’s crushing it at the box office.
Watched it today and enjoyed it. Sort of Stand by me at Halloween.
Yeah also shades of The Goonies.
IT surprised me. Much, much better than I thought it would be. I definitely see the analogies with Stand By Me, and Goonies.
It also reminded me of the original Nightmare on Elm Street.
Mark Kermode made comparisons with all three of those films, good work Jules.
That’s the guy with the quiff?
Indeed it is. Bit too pretentious at times but he knows his stuff
All that tells me is I probably watch too many films.
Kermode is brilliant. His rant on POTC 3 is quite amusing.
If you’re going to work this hard to not accept a compliment then I give up
Most of King’s work draws similarities as it mostly exists within his own fictional world. Certainly hope this adaption is as good as people say, it’s been quite some time since I’ve seen his work portrayed well on the big or small screen.
Never heard of that Kermode bloke, but his voice sounds familiar… Strange.
He doesn’t seem to like POTC…Proud to say I’ve never seen one of them.
In a 2012 Sight & Sound poll of cinema’s greatest films, Kermode indicated his ten favourites, given alphabetically, as Brazil, The Devils, Don’t Look Now, The Exorcist, Eyes Without a Face, It’s a Wonderful Life, Mary Poppins, A Matter of Life and Death, Pan’s Labyrinth, and The Seventh Seal.
Seen 2 and a half of his 10 fave films.
Which one didn’t you finish?
For what it’s worth, not knowing about Kermode is a good thing.
Yeah I’m pretty bad at noticing those
I tried twice and both times I just wasn’t in the right mood for it. Haven’t made it to the chess game part yet, which seems like it would be the best part(s).
You liked the Seventh Seal?
