What Movies Are You Watching Lately - Page 944

post #14146 of 14757



Stumbled on this, only watched about an hour. Had never heard of it, pretty big cast but (from the bit I saw) confused story and dull directing.

it was Russian movie Teacher (2015) - actually weird movie, bad actors play

Brilliant.

Highest grossing movie of 1984 with an Oscar nominated screenplay and Eddie Murphy at his peak.

Parts one and two: epic. Parts three (and four?): not so much.

Love the soundtrack of the original...and had a recent mindsplode when I realized one of the tracks was also used in Fletch.

Mike Nichols' adaptation of Joseph Heller's novel. Grim, but also wickedly funny at times. Some nice, long takes of the great cast.

Had forgotten everything past the 'squeal' scene (except that final shot of the still lake), so was in for a nice, thrilling ride. Great performance by Jon Voight and fun to see Ronny Cox in quite a different role to the two I just saw him play in RoboCop and Beverly Hills Cop. (Also, some very beautiful and raw nature here, which reminded me of canoeing Whanganui River in New Zealand some years back. Fortunately, capsizing twice was the most dramatic thing to happen on that trip.) Nominated for Best Editing, Best Picture and Best Director.

Watched it a while back.  I think Farrell was a gangster but I can't for the life of me remember what the movie was about

The Girl on the Train...

 

I had the book read to me on a driving trip a while back and loved the book.  I was afraid the movie would not show Rachel as the book did.  I was wrong.  This is a good adaptation of the book.  I liked it and was impressed.  Saw it in theater with about 12 others at a 12:20 PM matinee showing.

 

 

 

Cheers

From Vonnegut's (still being banned) novel, with music by Glenn Gould. Despite its fragmented narrative it manages to stay both coherent and captivating.

This thread makes me want to start collecting movie posters. That spoilered Point Break poster is amazing.

^ There were one or two other colour variations, but I preferred that one.

Also, when looking for posters for Deliverance, I found out they were done by Bill Gold, who's responsible for quite a few iconic posters:

and this, which I'd never seen before:



It's amazing how much better stuff like that is, compared to most of the crappy photoshop jobs we get now...

I think that says a lot about the movie.

Slaughterhouse-Five is a great book to film translation.
