    Anyone got any decent recommendations for revenge movies?
    Gladiator, Man on Fire, Kill Bill, V for Vendetta, Taken, The Count of Monte Cristo and Oldboy are a few that instantly spring to mind.

    Deathly Hallows Part 2 broken £1bn, and it hasn't opened in China yet, that's got to be about a gazillion more ticket sales right!?
    That's insane. It's only been half a month as well. It's definitely going to be the third highest grossing. Though I can't see it ever taking Avatar and Titanic. They were films which started off steady and then built up over so many weeks. Harry Potter is more a 'break all records' really fast and then slowly decline.

    You not really interested in that kind of Fantasy?

    I remember seeing Fellowship when it first came out. My friend had seen it and recommended it to me. I thought it would typical Hollywood crap based on a classic book. Anyway, it restored my faith in them making good films.. until I went to see Terminator 3 a couple of years later :facepalm2:
    LOTR also restored my faith in adapting complex and treasured books into fun, epic and sprawling successful films (both commercially and critically).

    But then The Golden Compass came out. :facepalm2:

    There's a few more photos of Bane out, a video of Bane and Batman fighting and a spoiler so don't open the second spoiler if you don't want to know:

    Spoiler:

    Notice how he's standing on the Tumbler.

    Bane tearing up a photo of Harvey Dent:


    Tom Hardy waving to some random bridesmaids:


    Christian Bale messing around:






    Spoiler:

    Miranda Tate turns out to be Talia Al Ghul...she kills Lucious Fox...and hands over the tumblers to Bane


    But seriously though, the best photo was this:

    Seen all of them unfortunately. If you liked Oldboy you might like I Saw the Devil, really good film.

    I bought this on DVD a few years back and remember not liking it much :holmes:

    Edit: I'm thinking Cape Fear. Haven't seen it before.

    I realise I may have extolled its virtues before, but if you haven't seen it, Once Upon A Time In The West is an excellent revenge flick. High Plains Drifter and For A Few Dollars More are also great revenge Westerns.

    Not a fan of Zookeeper?
    I just don't get it. He doesn't seem to have any real talent, charisma or good looks, and you'd usually need at least two of those to be considered a movie star. What kind of crack-addled brain do you have to have to put him as the face of your $80m film?

    When the **** was it decided that Kevin James was a leading man capable of opening films?
    I wasn't sure who he was, so I looked him up. :rofl:

    (I understand that you're talking about the other one, of course).

    I'm generally only hearing good things about it. There's an avengers spoiler at the end or something right?
    No, it's just the trailer.

    More of a teaser, I'd say.

    It's so good. :sogood:

    And it has a bit of legend surrounding it, Brandon Lee (Bruce Lee's son) was shot and killed by a dummy bullet whilst filming a scene.

    Wow, two movies tied for the top spot of the US box office this weekend, right down to the dollar. That's pretty unusual.

    An interesting fact about Harry Potter. Deathly Hallows Part 2 has just become the only one to break $1bn, but it is yet to surpass Philosopher's Stone in number of actual tickets sold. :holmes:

    If you have half an interest in documentaries, you really should watch this - My Life as a Turkey. Every shot is incredible and the story is beyond fascinating.

    I love how the BBC remain as the absolute top dog of wildlife documentaries. No one does them better.

    Ooh! Super 8 premiers this weekend - heard great things about it, so I'm hoping it should be pretty good especially after watching the last series of Fringe
