    Watched Django Unchained in cinema yesterday. Good film, drags a bit but overall good.

    Watched Titanic there the other day aswell, hadn't seen it in years

    Maybe if it's the last post on a page but if you want to read posts below the spoiler post but you don't know how long it is your eyes are gonna catch some of it.

    Watched this on Saturday night. Was disappointed with it to be honest, dragged out and promised to deliver something that never arrived. Not a bad film but nothing particularly memorable about it – had it been made in English in Hollywood it would have received 3 star reviews all round IMO.

    Caught up with a few of the big recent releases over the weekend (as the missus isn't a native English speaker we have to wait until a subtitled version is available for most films).

    ********************** SPOILER ALERT - white font used ********************************
    Thought Argo was good but no more. 25 minutes from the end I'd have said it was very good but the closing scenes at the airport (which have absolutely no basis in fact by the way) are farcically cliched - hugely detracted from the film IMO. He even managed to get in a chase scene FFS. I've already voiced my disapproval with the wilful alteration of actual events in the film re the British embassy etc but I was willing to park that and would have overlooked it if not for the ending - surprised he didn't get a lot more stick over this. The consensus is that Affleck is a poorish actor but a very good director, thought his acting in this was pretty flawless in fairness but he ruined it from the chair.

    Also saw Django Unchained. Arguably could have been 15-20 minutes shorter but really enjoyed it overall. Typical Tarantino - Cinema for Cinema's sake only but it's what he does and he does it well. Arguably the whole is less than the sum of its parts - some great scenes and acting performances in it.

    Also recently saw an Israeli film from a few years back called Ajami. It's one of those films with several concurrent stories in the same area jobs like Amores Perros or Gomorrah but better than either IMO. Definitely worth a look.

    From the same general neck of the woods and also worth a look is "Under the Bombs", set in Beirut.

    Best film - by a country mile - that I've seen recently was "Cloud Atlas". It somehow manages to combine passengers on a 19th century sailing ship in the Pacific, a gay composer in 1930s Cambridge, a reporter investigating skullduggery in the nuclear industry in San Francisco in 1973, a hilarious breakout from an old folks' home in present-day Scotland, a Star Wars / sci-fi tale from Korea about 150 years from now and a post-apocalyptic society in Hawaii another 200 years after that. I always thought the book, which is brilliant, was unfilmable but I was wrong. Her nibs hadn't read the book but loved the film all the same.

    Anybody watching Banshee. New series on sky Atlantic. If you like blood filled fights, shoot outs and naked women it's the one for you.

    I'd highly recommend it

    Gold over on the Shamrock forum. Sample quote:

    We were sold some heap of shite at the start of the season. "Croly was the key to St Pats's success" - they seem to be doing fine without him "Players with ambition want to play for him" - the ambition only seems to have lasted until they signed the contract.

    We are a laughing stock and I'm sick of it

    ^^ Second time I have come across that tonight.

    Saw Iron man 3 on thursday. I loved it. Very funny, and very dark. Better than the first 2 and only slightly behind the Avengers IMO

    Really? I was very disappointed by it, thought it was the worst out of the lot so far.

    A jittery plot with a load of holes, the waste of Ben Kingsley, and a lot of unnecessary humour.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the marvel movies, just thought this was subpar.

    I know they're old but I watched the killer and hard boiled the other night, two cracking films for anyone that doesn't mind subtitles.

    Hard boiled is one of my favourite movies ever. John woo made great movies before he went to Hollywood. Never saw the killer.

    Saw this. It was dragged out; I thought it was going to end four times before it did, but it was still an excellent watch.

    How easy is it for Ray Liotta to play those roles?

    Mistaken for Strangers - doc about The National on tour, filmed by one of their brothers http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FUjBue7XggQ

    What Richard Did - Irish film http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXTcSCp8R6E

    Prince Avalanche - purely for Paul Rudd http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aP8Wq9uAgpQ

    The Look of Love - based on 60 London nightlife scene with Steve Coogan http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtdYdT17Vuk

    Can't wait!!

    Have to agree. Ben Kingley's character turned to shite. Trailer looked great. As they do. Poor film
