The Bourne Legacy. Why? I can't remember the last time I was so bored watching a movie and it offered nothing of worth to the overall story at all. Complete waste of everyone's time!

Ghost wrote:Andy, you must be getting sick of watching the Star Trek trailer because you've been to the cinema so much. I know I am :lol: . I should be watching Iron Man 3 and that Ryan Gosling, beyond the pines (whatever it's called) film this weekend so I get to see that trailer even more. :lol:



i've seen 3 different ones now :lol:

I really liked Bourne Legacy personally, not as good as the first 3, but for me that trilogy is one of the best trilogys ever released, Legacy made we want to see more though, and great to see Rachel Weisz again :)

Dead Man Down looks fantastic, I shall see that Friday, looks like we have another revenge thriller coming out aswell, Only God Forgives with Ryan Gosling, that looks really brutal

I'm not sure because I'm not a fan of Colin. I'll probably go anyway because I have a cinema pass. :lol: . Those films have been done so many times.
Kevin Bacon made a revenge thriller a few years ago which was great.

Watched Looper, Crank, The Sweeney and Lawless over the past few days.

Though all were pretty good, with Looper and The Sweeney being the better two.



Should be seeing Star Trek: Into Darkness the week after it comes out. Cannae wait man!

Sweeney, I honestly found myself hating the cops more than the bad guys, first time I've ever wanted them all to die at the end :lol:

I can imagine the Sweeney just being Ray Winstone shouting and calling everyone Slags for an hour and a half. "You're nicked you slag!" :lol:

He's just vile in it, the character is horrendously unlikeable, I think they got the tone wrong with it completely

My wife and I have been watching a lot of recent(ish) films of late.

We saw Argo at the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it.

We watched a British film called Wild Bill last night. I'd heartily recommend it...

And we've got Looper to watch over the weekend.

I literally couldn't watch more than half of that.

The only film that's made me turn off because "wow that is creepy and fucked up" as opposed to "wow that is terrible".
