    Just back from Cloud Atlas, loved it!
    :five: One of the most ambitious films I have watched. It was very divisive critically but I'm certain that the fondness for the film will grow over the next few years.

    It was only on my second watch that I noticed just how well the scenes were edited together. They complimented each other in a seamless flow (like a character closing the door in one scene and opening a door in the next one). And the soundtrack was pretty fantastic too.

    Yes, definitely! Oh, I noticed the flow and it was probably one of my favourite things of the film! I have to say though, the accent in the last future story was a bit off putting and very difficult to understand!

    I might actually go to the cinema again to watch it Love having a friend on Sky for the free tickets :giggle:

    first post, daaaamnit -_-

    on a completely random note, I wonder why Frodo and his ragtag fellowship just fly on the giant eagles straight to Mount doom and drop the ring in the volcano like that, cut out the Two Towers and ROTK
    How it should have ended...

    Has anybody watched Les Miserables yet? I heard it was not very good.

    Two films I would like to watch at the moment are Beautiful Creature and Mama. They trailers for both of them look very good.

    Django Unchained was awesome. The mask scene was absolutely hilarious.

    Finished off Terrence Malick's filmography last night by watching Days of Heaven, The New World and The Tree of Life. Would rate all five of his films in the range of good to near damn perfect. Now to wait a week or so to see To The Wonder

    I really enjoyed it tbh. I don't think it's a masterpiece but the ambition, ideas and thoughts from Malick really make it worth a watch through. Definitely worth a second shot :yy:

    I thought TToL was really excellent. Not quite as good as Days of Heaven for me, but on a par with The Thin Red Line, which I love too.

    Me too. I was expecting it to be quite hard work due to the amount of complaints and dislikes I'd seen about it but the ~2 hours went by in no time for me.

    Agree with you on Days of Heaven, not so much on The Thin Red Line. DoH was the damn near perfect one I was referring to earlier The stunning visuals, fragmented looking back telling of it, the 'epic film' feel - fairly sublime really. I think TTRL is my least favourite (although still good) but maybe that'll change when I rewatch having seen Malick full filmography. I certainly think having seen DoH before TToL made me appreciate TToL more than I would've if I'd not seen DoH beforehand, if that makes any sense at all!

    Depends on what sort of thing you want to watch, but I'd recommend both Beasts of the Southern Wild and Lincoln.
