    Watched 'Prisoners' recently and it's honestly one of the best films I've seen of it genre if not ever. But that's partly because I love detective related films (Se7en, Gone Baby Gone and Zodiac to name a few). It's very realistic in terms of how people react to certain situations (which you can't say for many movies nowadays), emotional and there's so many suspenseful and shocking scenes. The acting is excellent as well, especially Hugh Jackman and Jake GyllenhaaI. I would compare it to 'Gone Baby Gone' and people say it's a mixture between that and 'Ransom' which I've not seen.

    I have not seen it yet but really want to. I wouldn't say Ransom's as good as Gone Baby Gone. Ransom is.....decent. You might want to check out Mystic River. Same genre.

    Midnight in Paris

    Charming little movie. I've never really watched Woody Allen movies before. Enjoyable, well written. I'd recommend it. 8/10

    Yeah. I love that film. Adrian Brody was so obsessed with Rhinos in that film lol. He only came in for a bit but I loved his cameo.

    Woody Allen has made so many films. He's got so much creativity. Not a big fan of his old films. His only other film that I liked was Match Point.

    Seen most of them and didn't want to repeat watch. Hadn't seen any of the bottom 100 and thought they might make interesting articles.

    Just went to see Captain Phillips and was completely blown away.

    Seeing the trailer a couple of week ago, I assumed it was just a Hollywood re-make of Kapringen (and that sort of thing makes me cross). I also thought "hmm...Tom Hanks? Yawn" But when I realised it was by Paul Greengrass I thought it would be worth a watch.

    It is a really brilliant movie, easily the best I have seen this year. My friend and I left the cinema shaking with emotion. It really does put you through the wringer as if you have been through the experience yourself.

    10/10 from me.

    I saw a youtube video about SEALs and they discussed the SEAL team that carried out the mission. I didn't even know they were making a film about it at the time. Sadly I don't remember the name of the video.

    I recently saw a trailer for it in cinema, didn't get too caught up in it. Will probably watch. But really, really waiting for Lone Survivor, that looks like exactly the kind of film I love.

    Very much looking forward to this. Ditto the reaction to Hanks being in it, but I do have a lot of time for Greengrass: absolutely loved both Bloody Sunday and United 93. I have similar thoughts about Gravity; normally, I wouldn't be especially enthused by the idea of a Clooney-Bullock movie :p: but this one actually looks and sounds really good! I haven't seen much of Cuaron before to form a presumption, but the reviews have been almost invariably glowing.

    Looking forward to watching Blue Jasmine, Kermode says Cate Blanchett is nailed on for the Best Actress Oscar. An early shout!
    Yes, not seen it but it does sound that way.

    And I'm tipping Mr Hanks for Best Actor for Captain Phillips - you heard it here first

    Bold statement!

    Captain Phillips got 5-stars in a review I read and I was quite surprised, but your review has reinforced the need to see this film.

    First half/third...basically the premise is fantastic but they don't run with it. It becomes a bog standard home invasion movie. A shame really. Lots of potential in the idea.

    Have you seen 12 Years a Slave yet? I hear Ejiofer is utterly fantastic in it. :holmes:

    I recommend 'Children of Men' by him, if you've not seen it yet.
    I've heard a lot of good things about it, so it's up on my list. :yep:

    Yeah it's alright. Worth watching for the concept. Okay action. It's not a bad film, The Purge could've been so much more.

    It was an incredibly short film as well :confused:

    It would have been better as an ensemble film showing the different aspects of the night and the different layers of society. The standard home invasion part was pretty terrible and the actions of some of the characters moronic.

    If you were in a world like that wouldn't you make your house impenetrable? Hidden automatic guns all over the house outside of the house to kill anyone that goes on the property, weapons hidden in the walls incase someone gets in and teach your kid basic survival techniques, like don't be a ****ing moron, from a very early age.

    Hmm.. Not heard of 12 years a slave - when was it released?

    I didn't think much of Children of Men, I'm afraid. :nope:
