Last Film You've Seen
They're not "movies," they're films. Get it right.

Anyway, post the name of last film you've seen and your thoughts on it.



I was just dragged by my cousin to watch Twilight. Never read the books, but the poorly written script and horrible acting destroyed whatever potential the story may have had.

It's definitely not the worst vampire flick I've seen tho.

If the movie was bad, I'm sure it did great justice to the books. Seriously, my friend coerced me into reading ALL of Twilight ("no! you're just getting to the good part! don't worry you'll definitly love it by the end!") and oh my sweet baby jesus, I never so seriously burn a book that wasn't a textbook so badly.

That said, the last movie I saw was Wall-E. I just bought the DVD, and I love it just as much as when I went to go see it in the theatres in the summer. Despite being animated robots, Wall-E and Eve have one of the best on-screen romances I've seen in a long time. Very, very touching movie for kids and adults alike :monster:

Actually, I just had Cold Mountain on in the background while I was studying Physiology.

Twilight. I never read the books, my friend just forced me to watch it with her she's a rabid fan.

TBH, the movie is mediocre. Never got the hype surrounding it. Nor do I get Robert Pattinsons appeal. He's not that good looking. ???

If you love cute Disney films, this is a good one. It's along the same line of just about.. well... every Pixar film, but it's a cute movie, and funny, and just a nice film all around.

The characters are super awesome in it too. I have a tendency to go "I am IRKED" now.

Wall-E is pretty good (for an animation movie, zomfg), and after that, I watched Vexille, some Japanese CG animation movie. It was pretty poor in terms of story / ending, imho, although the setting was interesting :monster:. But I wouldn't bother getting it.

Before those, I watched The Dark Knight, which was (imo) far too long and was more like two movies into one, but it was good overall.

Re: Last Film You've Seen
My sister was watching 'Catch me if you can' the other day, so I sat and watched it with her. It was actually pretty good, considering I normally dislike Leo movies. :monster:

Before that... I seriously think it was The Dark Knight, which I enjoyed overall and was happy Batman redeemed himself for Batman Begins.

Or, it might have been this giant robot anime which the name of I forget. Giant robot police officers... who showed up in the last half an hour.

Patlabor? Appleseed?

I can't remember what the last film I saw was. But I have new cut of Blade Runner on Blu-Ray to watch.

That's where the problem lies. The poorly written books :monster:

Although a friend of mine had to stop a girl (I say girl, this is late teens) from stabbing some guy with a pencil for saying something bad about Twilight, so I'm going to stop now :monster:

"Escape from the planet of the apes", (Planet of the Apes 3)

Initially this movie seemed good; but like with the second movie the ending ruined everything. The way the story is retconned with the sequels makes everything into a giant mess, and I just skimmed through the fourth and fifth movie because I knew they weren't worth the sitting.

First movie is excellent. Second and third starts out good, but the endings just doesn't cut it.

Blade Runner - Final Cut.

I don't remember the other versions enough to tell the different though, to be honest :monster:

Re: Last Film You've Seen
The last movies I saw were The Notebook and Wall-E. One was an amazing love story; the other was a steaming pile of cliches and gauzy filters. I'll let you figure out which one's which. :D

Re: Last Film You've Seen
Doesn't really matter, :monster:.

I saw The Day the Earth Stood Still (the new one) in the cinemas the other day. Good movie, but lame / old concept / story.

My sister was watching PoTC: At World's End a while ago so I decided to join her.
