Django Unchained - a bit old I know but only just saw it a couple of weeks ago, an excellent film.
I tried that but gave up after an hour. I just find the Tarnantino style too violent and nasty. I know the subject matter was not pleasant but he seems to enjoy it too much. It is uncomfortable viewing and I don't watch films to feel uncomfortable. A shame as I know many rate it highly.

I know what you mean but it's a strange thing to be worried about considering your username and avatar?
Can't argue with that. I do wince at times during GoT but somehow I can deal with that. Maybe it's the combination of endless f words plus violence in QT films that put me off. It doesn't make sense, I accept that.

I tried to watch The Zero Theorem the other day. It was a standard Terry Gilliam film in that I don't get it, don't care for it and watched something else after 20 mins. Not my bag as they say.

Just been to see Kingsman:The Secret Service.

Completely non-nonsensical almost childlike storyline, yet lots of swearing and Mr Darcy fighting like a ninja whilst fully suited and booted with his umbrella in tow.

Absolutely loved it! Flamin great fun!

Excellent. Sounds like something I will be seeing then. Far to many films disappearing up their own fundamentals it's nice to see something that is just fun. Felt Guardians of the Galaxy was one of those types.

10/10 for me

Cracking farce from start to finish.

Every single character is superb. Not an easy thing to achieve with such a large cast.

Fiennes is in Career best form IMO
Brilliant, brilliant fim

I thought Foxcatcher was superb. Gritty, realistic and with all three main actors worthy of award. It built serious tension and was all the better for it.

Theory of Everything was an acting masterclass, what a performance and was hilarious and sad in equal measure. They catch Hawking's cutting wit perfectly whilst also showing the tragedy without making you pity him too much.

Going to see Whiplash next week, already looking forward to it.

Saw it yesterday. Totally agree. Morally dodgy, v graphic violence but a bucket load of fun. My wife would hate it, my son and I loved it. Definitely a 15 though, in case anyone is thinking of taking a younger child.
