As per title. Would be interested in saving myself two hours on a S*** film if you guys have any reccs?

I'm about to watch Bronson (about Charles Bronson). I'll let you guys know how it goes.

Yeah we've ended up watching a ton of bad movies. Bronson was OK. Tried to be a bit too clever and ruined itself a bit (It takes off Natural Born Killers...)

About the best films I've seen in the past few months were My Beautiful Boy (about a school shooter killer and the fallout on his parents, very strong stuff !) and the Jackass series (seen em all before but can watch over and over lol).

Off topic but IMO stick to TV Shows, grab a season of a good show (do not mean reality S***, grab 24 or Prison Break etc etc)and watch a few per night as todays movies are crap and many are simply poor remakes/reboots.

I used to watch all the movies but in past few months less and less.

I will watch the AAA titles but they are "OK" at best nothing great.

I don't do TV series apart from Masterchef tbh.

We've got a Chromecast with Netflix (we don't pay for NF my step daughter does) and we use that. The thing is, if I started watching a series I would have to watch them all one after another...

That is type of show I would not watch lol.

At least its original unlike all clones of it now.

Grab The Shield or The Wire and do not look back and sure watch 3-4Eps per night.

I wouldn't be able to do that dude, I'm an Aspie (autism). I would get hooked and then spend all night watching. I remember once when I had 12 teeth pulled out (long story...) I ended up loading myself up on codeine and watching every Dirty Harry, then every Death Wish.

I tell you what other film I saw.. Sling Blade. I tell you what, it's got to be one of the best films I've ever seen. I can't believe I'd never heard of it before.

?You shouldn'ta done that, he's just a bowa

30 minutes or less

Not a bad film, some laugh out loud moments actually.

Not something I'd rush out to see mind. Kind of a have a few beers and a takeaway and have that on in the back ground whilst your trying to convince the missus that you paid for dinner so it's only fair that she 'sorts you out' with their laughing gear. (well.... Thats what I did for the last 20 mins of the film)


Reviews by Dave.... They never get better I'm afraid.

Watched the first Starship Troopers the other night with the boy. He has never seen our even heard of it. First thing he said i am not watching one of your stupid films. So i told him to shutup sit down, and if you don't like the first ten minutes you can go. 2 hours later we where outside killing bugs, he is ready to sign up. Oh yeah he liked the film good gore, but in a funny way, and the odd bobbie.

I watched the lego movie and enjoyed it and Batman made it extra special :D

Nothing has really stuck out for me for quite some time. I did watch Gangs of New York again last night and brilliant film :)

I didn't think it was that bad in truth. A little silly but still a 6/10 for me

A good old film to watch for those who've not seen it. Dead Mans Shoes.
