Gravity was a little boring. Maybe I expected too much.


Okay, I admit it....I slept halfway through. Embarassed
Some people absolutely loved it, that's clear. Perhaps we just failed to connect with the characters? Also, some parts were apparently very emotional and yet I felt nothing. I'm usually a girl when it comes to that.

I also have no problem with an entire movie being around a few people in one location. As an example, I really enjoyed 'The Man from Earth' which was all set in a living room. lol

I've watched most of the single location movies out there, although they're often logically flawed in many a ways I've enjoyed a few so I try and make a habit of watching them. Phone Booth and Cast Away I like; Frozen (2010), 127 Hours, Buried (2010) and maybe Moon (2009) kind of were worth watching once. The Man from Earth  though I didn't like at all, it's one of those movie that sounds really great and I though I would like but it just came across highly pretentious and I made no connection with it.

Just finished watching 'Gone With The Wind', one of the most famous and according to some movie critics, one of the greatest movies of all time. In normal circumstances, this type of movie would not be my cup of tea. But I thought since its the winner of ten Academy Awards it must be pretty good so I watched it, and actually thoroughly enjoyed it. Very good romantic film indeed. It is incredibly long, almost 4 hours but it kept me hooked.

That's far too cultured for you Gangsta, you should go back to watching Dr Who episodes.

I know it's not relevant to this discussion forum. But having had the book on my shelves for about 15 years, I thought it was time to start reading it. I actually found it rather long-winded and slightly boring. No wonder that she never wrote another book.

Incidentally, I stopped reading after about 120 pages

Like what?

I'll add Blue Jasmine to my to watch list (although Woody Allen gulp <_<)

As a start I'll nominate: "Rush" and "Philomena". I'll add others later. Incidentally, I didn't much care for "Gravity". I thought it was tedious.

Man of Steel is a pile of vomit infested horse diarrhoea, another regurgitation of the putrid that's being continuously thrown-up in the modern-day action genre. Nothing but a mindless, empty, over the top, illogical, endless monotony of retched CGI sequences spewed over some horse ѕhit that's supposed to be called a story. It was just Hollywood's latest bowel movement excreted atop the flaming heap of manure that they've been dumping all over us.

The next time somebody tries to force me into watching one of these Hollywood action films I'm going to gauge my eyes out with a fork in order to get out seeing it.

Do not talk about that movie. Utter blasphemy. Nothing was good about it. Apart from maybe Neo.
