Just a thread to mention the last film you watched. You may write a little comment about it if you want.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I

I was a bit disappointed and it's my least favourite from the series so far. I can't really say much because I haven't read the book tho.

Last night: Gladiator. It was beautiful with a good performance by Oliver Reed, but some of the scenes were just too unbelievable. Not least the end where they leave the Emperor lying in the sand to rot. Listen closely to the crowd in the final duel. They are cheering because their Emperor is getting an *** whooping! What did he ever do to them?!

My little review there.
Today I watched "Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky".
How would you rate it? Is it worth watching?

One of the best films ever made, however, I can see why some would say otherwise. I haven't met anyone yet who hasn't got strong opinions about this film. It's like Marmite, you either love it or you hate it. Has anyone seen this film and got strong opinions about it?

Why watch it in Japanese with subtitles? For animation, if available, I'd always go with the English (native language) voice acting version so you can concentrate on the images.
I agree. It's dub not sub for me.
Eyes Wide Shut.
Well I tried but couldn't watch all of it. I gave up when there was about half an hour left.
It was too weird in the bad way. Not to mention that the plot wasn't going anywhere and it was getting on my nerves.
OMG! It's one of the best films ever! There is a fantastic "explanation/false explanation" scene and the last line is priceless. There are so many themes to this film: the decadence of the aristocracy, the incompatibility of marriage and sexual desire. Plus, the main mystery plot is gripping! Watch it again and watch it properly! :D
(Did you get through the sex-house masked orgy secene?)
If you are expecting an orgy you will be disappointed. The film will show you your own decadent desires as it did mine! ;)

"You may take our lives, but you'll never take OUR FREEDOM!"

It's a solid film, but here are the bad points.

1 - Kilts weren't invented at this time.

2 - The Scottish were and are savage barbarians. If the Scottish had been a stronger force than England at that time, they would have taken advantage of of them. Bring back Hadrian's Wall!

3 - The king of England sends the princess to parley with Wallace, hoping that she would be slain so the king of France (her father) would join him against Scotland. Wouldn't the king of France be p****d that the king of England sent his daughter to die?!

I'm selling this on ebay if anyone's interested.

This is a really good film. It actually made me enjoy popular culture which is remarkable in itself! The amount of effort that went into making this film is obvious from start to finish. It's a joy to watch.

The story is so operatic in nature and yet it doesn't seek to be more than it is. There's an explicit reference to La Boheme and I got hints of Werther. If anyone can spot any more connections with opera I'd love to know.

I'm interested to hear what anyone else has to say about the film if they have seen it.

"Say hello to my little friend!"

If you want to see Antonio Salieri mouth off and deal drugs, watch this film!

Kill Bill Vol.1 and Kill Bill Vol.2. These films are really starting to grow on me.

Do you fall into the camp of enjoying one of the films much more than other, or do you like them roughly equally? Personally, I'd say Vol. 1 has the best fight scenes, but I'd choose Vol. 2 over it any day for the plot and overall effect ;)
I like them both equally as I consider them as a whole. I agree Vol.1 has the best fight scenes, but Vol.2 is more explanatory.
