Went and saw " Danger Close "  the Long Tan battle movie this morning .. For a first showing, Only about twenty people in the theatre,  not a box office busting start..
All I can say is it falls short in its portrayal in a lot of ways . Its an ok movie that just didnt hit the mark for me though,  after reading / seeing the battle  documented over the years .
I reckon it portrays some people in a bad light and I dont reckon they or their relatives would be too happy ..But thats movie dramatic licence  ..
I dont really take much notice of movie reviews... much better to hear from non reviewers...

My son went & saw the Beatles movie last week - he said he was the only person in the theatre for that showing ::)

Rambo last blood .. Liked the first one way back, the 15 in between I couldnt watch, But reckon this last one was pretty Bloody good, yeah yeah predictable story line and all that,  but found it was enjoyable to watch ..
Maybe I identify with the Improvise Adapt Overcome and Persevere ending just a little  ;D

We went and watched the Oz movie, Judy and Punch at an independent cinema.
A bit off beat, 3 out of 5 for us.

Watched Angel Has Fallen on the weekend. Plenty of action but pretty lame plot which I guess is to be expected with most movie franchises.

It definitely wasn't that bad. My kids and I went to the premiere at midnight. They all enjoyed it.

That's great. That usually means that the movie is worth watching  :cup:

I have lost count of the amount of movies that I have seen that received great reviews that were absolute rubbish

Joker, definitely not funny and pretty average - Joaquin's performance was good though.

Just watched an old war time movie - The Train..

About the French Resistance working against the Germans....
In real life - those resistance people must have had nerves of titanium.

For anyone who watches SBS World Movies, and doesn't need to see people getting shot every 5 minutes to enjoy a film - 'The Straight Story' is a ripper.

Same channel, for kids 5-14 or so - 'Operation Arctic'.

Was a 3 1/2 hr film. I watched it over 2 sittings.  Could see that some would think is slow. I didn't mind it. Would watch it again,  over 2 sessions.
