What was the last film you watched?

Some things cultured but mostly films and telly stuff.

Raw. 2016, French with subtitles.

Disturbing, with some genuinely unpleasant scenes.

That is a mighty bold claim.

I'll have to watch it to see if you are correct

I watched half of Rear Window yesterday, and then all of The Neolith this morning.

I've never seen RW before and thought I knew what I was in for, because how can you not know what you're in for with a 70 year old classic of cinema? But it caught and held my attention fully and James Stewart is the actual bomb.

It didn't hold my attention fully enough that I watched it all, clearly. But I'd run out of ironing and decided to go for a walk. I'll come back to it though, as it's Plussed.

The Neolith is on Vimeo and is a 30 minute short that reminded me of Valhalla Rising (the longest film where nothing happens, violently, that I've ever tried to watch). TN it's garnering similarly positive reviews to VR, but although it looks phenomenally excellent I was left a bit nonplussed by the seeming lack of anything going on beyond the superficial events of two groups of people killing each other in "ancient times".

A lady sang a song without any words though, on a hillside. And I think that was quite the highlight.

RW is one of the best films of all time. I love every single thing about it.

I was/am loving it too, and will return to complete my opinion when I've watched the rest.

I watched The Hunt this morning, the film that had America's knickers in a twist before anyone had actually watched it. The film that Trump tweeted bad about without seeing it.

And it's terrific. A huge stupid pile of gleefully violent fun, pretending to have a "bygones" anti-internet echo bubbles agenda, but instead just laughing as it slaughters in turn each character you think is going to be the protagonist.

And the eventual actual protagonist is great. Resourceful and dry and snippy while displaying brutal capability.

The film looks great too, in an unshowy way, and made me laugh a few times. It reminded me a little in tone of The Babysitter, another film which absolutely reveled in being violently horrible to its characters and then cackling while they gurgle to death.

Ace. I mean rubbish, obviously. But ace.

Agree Damo.
Utterly rubbish but ace is a good way of putting it.

One of the only good things about having a son who this week hit 14 is that he's finally old enough to watch some decent stuff.

Last week we watched Deadpool together (yes, it's a 15 but get off my case Social!) and this morning (again, get off! Both the horrors had an inset day) we watched Predator.

Predator is still Predator of course, but it was frankly utterly brilliant to watch a stone cold classic from my youth with the lad. We snuggled together on the sofa with popcorn and he complained bitterly about the intrusive background noise of Predator-vision, and laughed his socks off naming guns when all the shooting happened (he is a ruthless Call Of Duty veteran).

But this weekend I might have to watch Last Christmas with Mischief, so it's not all beer and roses. Or whatever.

You could try and put her off.

Last Christmas I did a big fart
It took till next day till the smell went away
This year, to save me from tears
I'm going to wear a gas mask.

My nieces sing "the very next day you sold it on ebay", but I think my version is better.

I am still waiting for a night with no women around for me and Master Burnside to watch The Life of Brian and Blazing Saddles.

I caught a bit of Airplane! the other day, still laughed like an idiot at it.

Mine love Life of Brian
Didn't like Blazing Saddles

Damo, I watched Deadpool with my daughter (she too is 14). I'll be honest I'm surprised that was an 18. It is for example far worse in just about every category than Running Man which was an 18.
So she is not allowed to watch Deadpool 2

Im sure we are all feeling the same, which is that no decent films have been made in about 10 years so we are scraping the barrel of Netflix and prime.
As a result I watched "I spit on your grave 1,2 and 3".
They are all exactly the same. Fit woman gets badly raped off by impossibly horrible men.
Fit woman miraculously survives and takes revenge.
Graphic, violent, unrealistic and awful. With fannies. And cock come to think of it but no one cares.
These are truly terrible films and yet they have the delicious ingredient of horrific violence, excellent nudity, really bad baddies and nice revenge.
I watched 1,2 and 3 which should tell you everything you need to know which is that there is nothing better to watch.

Either 2/10 or 7/10. I cant quite tell.

I started watching Rear Window the other day after hearing some raving about it on here (and to be fair -everywhere else)
I got 10 minutes into it and just thought it was awful.
I think these classics age really badly and should be left as distant nostalgia.
I just cant seem to take a film seriously with cardboard sets and bad colouring and stunted extras.
Just everything about the production values and cinematography of a 50 year old film is so poor and inferior that it becomes lame.
Ill acknowledge that I am not criticising the actual specific film, and I am sure it is far better than most films of its age but in the same way as 1960s massively bushy vaginas were fine and tolerated at the time, they simply don't belong in 2020 and should never be tolerated, but be merely the preserve of the homeless

I agree rear window has dated badly, Hitchcock's Vertigo from around the same time is still worth watching though.

OMG Dibs. It's one of the all time funniest films ever. De Niro is actually funny (he's not always good in comedy) and Charles Grodin is brilliant. Just such a brilliant film from start to finish. You HAVE TO WATCH IT. Forget every other recommendation.

If I shell out £3.49 for it and it's not the all time funniest film ever I'll be speaking to Greg66 about a compensation claim.
