Recommendations - No Spoilers

Recommended Posts

 

Was much better than I thought it would be. 

 

I think this was owing to Arnie not taking the lead in action scenes, leaving more to Sam Worthington and Joe Manganiello (Brad from How I met Your Mother)

 

Well made action sequences, fully delivered if You're a fan of gunfights. 

 

For me it was like a better version of End of Watch, leaning more toward action than plot, though.

 

Characters weren't typical. 

no good hand to hand combat scenes kind of let me down

The Two Faces of January Trailer

 

 

was good, really well acted (same main actor from The Road [the film with a father and son who are homeless on the run], who slyly reminds me of Woody Harrelson, and the old Mary Jane from the older Spiderman films).

 

reminded me of old film noir (in terms of the style/story, obv in colour), so it did a good job of setting up the period it was set in

 

for a mainly dialogue based movie with some but not much action, I'd recommend. 

 

Good pace to it.

 

The way characters were forced into situations was clever. Allow getting mixed up in another man's moves when You were innocent.

 

Being forced to work alongside someone You don't like makes for a good movie

also, allow a man moving to Your wife, and You have to take it coz he's the only man that can help You, and he knows You've murdered someone.

Wana see Dane Dehaan's performance in this more than anything else. 

 

Devil's Knot trailer

 

Dane Dehaan was hardly in it.

 

Film was alright, more of a court case film than anything else.

 

Shows a lot about prejudice in court, and how much Your personality is as important as actual evidence. 

 

Similar ish to Prisoners but with no violence, and less surprise in the story.

 

A few disturbing scenes, which were well done and effective, actually felt uncomfortable watching at some points.

watched this yesterday

 

 

was a really sad film, if You're looking for something romantic, dialogue based, also a medical drama, I recommend. 

 

all females in the cinema were crying. 

 

female lead good, I didn't like the guy so much. but yeah, really well put together.

also saw this

 

 

was good, and nice to see some black people in English history for a change, since black history always refers to American history (X).

 

well acted, well made, deals a lot with class, race and gender.

Chef - Scarlett Johanson and Sofia Vergara in 1 movie? Scarlett Johanson is taking no breaks is she?

 

good feel good film, good fatherhood film. 

 

Robert Downey Junior's role was very small, really no point in them using him, and he definitely shouldn't have been in the trailer, making it look like he had a bigger part than he did.

 

Starting to feel the whole "adults don't understand social media" is getting a bit overdone in films, or being given a little too much importance (a film is coming out called Sex Tape about a couple's sex tape being leaked, snm)

 

Always love entrepreneurship in a movie.

 

Also, considering it only got a 15 certificate for having too much swearing, I find this dumb, they could have toned down the swearing, had a 12A and more people could watch. swearing wasn't essential to the film. 

 

Cold in July was a crap film, very disjointed, no flow to it, and tension which didn't lead to anything.

Any good recommendations for Music Documentaries?

 

Can be any genre, the less popular the better, love watching things about legendary musicians I don't usually listen to.

 

Searching for the Sugarman, amazing story
