What film have you just watched?

Pacific rim 2, big monster and big robots knocking fuçk out of each other.
Meh
 
remake of 'Sahara', bit like 'Ice Cold In Alex', but a tank in the desert after water.
Not bad, don't let the fact that it's Jim Belushi put you off. pretty faithful remake, not Hollywoodi(z)ed
It actually wasnt terrible, they had a Lee tank but unfortunately a Aussie one without the MG Cupola and the "I" block track blocks
 
Journeys End
WWI movie, rather similar plot to the old Aces High film but in the trenches rather than a fighter squadron.
The film starts with a warning that the German March offensive will start in the next few days, with a new Company going into the trenches who will be caught up in the offensive when it begins.
Through the film the new date is displayed counting down to the offensive until we get to the start date and then the film ends.
 
Get Carter. The Michael Caine version, rather than the one Sly Stallone's meant to have made. Still good after all these years.

Stage play and an early talkie 1930 film from the script; director James Whale was in the trenches. The R C Sherriff book, he was a Captain at Passchendaele, is a Penguin classic. Didn't know about this new film so cheers, apparently the language hasn't been modernised and it's had good reviews.
 
How long of a delay do you folks usually have until the new movies are released your way?
We can get them off the internet the same time that you can, if we're inclined to naughtiness.

Not film but TV, on channel 19 they are showing "Whatever happened to the Likely Lads" and on channel 20 they were showing "New Tricks", thats James Bolam sorted.
 
@mad_mick, enjoyed When the Boat Comes In series on Youtube.

Just watched the trailer for Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer 2 due for release in July this year. Should be good.

Finally got round to watching << Siege of Jadotville >>

Conor Cruise O'brien comes across as a bit of a sh1t - amazing that they could only find an English actor to play him ;-\

Extensively reviewed in the dedicated thread above. In my view, worth a couple of hours of eyeball time.

I liked the almost throw away shot of a Mirage shooting down Dag Hammerskold's plane. Lots of tin foil theories out there, none proven.

Anyone who hasn't read Freddie Forsyth's 'Dogs of War' might like some background to the merc scene at that time: he got to know quite a few during his time covering the Nigerian civil war a few years later.
 
"Advise and Consent" (1962)

Henry Fonda
Charles Laughton
Franchot Tone
Lew Ayres
Walter Pidgeon

POTUS Tone nominates Fonda as Sec of State
Sen Laughton thinks him a commie
 
Brotherhood of The Wolf, an oldie from 2002. In the late 1700s something was stalking the mountains of south-western France, no really, the mythical Beast of Gévaudan. So the French made a big lavish daft film about the legend cobbled together from a few movies including Hammer, plus martial arts and a strange native American... but the dubbing actors are merd. Looks and sounds really good on a big screen though and Monica Belluci is in it - baps out (foxy Sylvia). So is Eric Prat, suitably cast, baps not out. Never heard of the others. It's so ridiculous it's like an expensive Hollywood B-movie.
 
"Cool Hand Luke", with Paul Newman, George Kennedy in the role that won him an Oscar, and Strother Martin as every evil bastard warden there's ever been in a prison movie all rolled up into one scummy bawsack. Great film, probably the best American prison movie ever made.

Couldn't resist, sorry.

If I remember, the guy with one arm was Vincent Cassal, who happened to be married to Ms Belucci at the time
