What movie have you watched recently?
« on: December 24, 2017, 06:51:06 PM »
Along the lines of the "what music are you listening to at the moment?", I thought I would start a movie one and see if it gets any interest.

Last night I watched Dunkirk on Foxtel on demand and thought it was pretty ordinary - probably 2 out of 5 stars.

Then today, I went to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi and it was really good - 4 out of 5 stars.

I was disappointed with Dunkirk too after the way it was built up, There were some  scenes that I'd give credit for .. But overall it didnt impress me .
This New Star Wars would want to be way way better than  the last one with the sheila and bloke running around .
Watched a bit of Australian classics today, with the little Miss 10, She was glued to it and loved them . .. Good O'l " SMILEY " and "  SMILEY gets a Gun " ..
Another quite good one  from 1987 that  had her riveted to the lounge,  was " Batteries not Included " .

I remember them showing "Smiley gets a Gun" when we did the "Kinnon and Co Stage Coach Experience" in Longreach a couple of years ago.  A good movie for the kids and I can highly recommend both Longreach and the Kinnon and Co tours.

I watched Hunt for the Wilderpeople last night, a NZ film that's pretty good. A quirky feel good movie.

It's a wonderful life and miracle on 34th STREET

Two wonderful Christmas movies.

But for some people, the lack of car chases and expulsions make them rather dull.

Saw Star Wars last week.. was a little underwhelmed to be honest.
Didn’t see Dunkirk but there is another movie due out early next year involving Churchill and the lead up to the war which going by the shorts looks interesting... but who knows.

Remember seeing the Smiley movies as a little fellow in the old theatre in Millmerran. It was a tin shed with canvas slung seats. I think we were given sixpence to get in to see 2 movies & buy an ice cream, drink & lollies at intermission. Smiley was real to us as we lived just like Smiley. How we survived I am not sure. Mum must have had nerves of steel, although her consumption of Bex was pretty high :)

Every time I'm at the local dump point hosing out the porta potti I attempt to make eye contact with anyone passing by just so I can yell "Shitter was full!" Sometimes it works.

On the topic of xmas classics, it's not xmas without the classicest, good old Die Hard.

The Greatest Showman at the movies. If you're a fan of musical theatre or Hugh Jackman, this is worth seeing
I may not be that funny or good looking or talented or smart or athletic but

Damn, I forgot where I was going with this
