Saw the original Terminator on friday night btw. Still fucking class, the best of the lot by far iyam.

Still haven't seen either T1 or T2! But downloaded them again and might go for a double bill some time real soon!

 

:lol: Seriously? Both Terminators are classics for me, although I'd say T2 is slighty better.

How could you have got this far in your life without seeing two of the greatest films ever?

Yeap that's basically what some of friends have often said to me too! :lol:

 

Really looking forward to seeing them actually!

 

Actually I've also been told not to bother with T1 because apparently it's really dated now and the crappy effects would ruin the film as opposed to T2 that still holds up today. Nah, got to see 1 surely! Don't think I'll be bothering with 3 and 4 though.

Lifeboat 7.5/10 - Relatively forgotten gem from Hitchcock.

The Awfull Truth 9/10 - Another classic screwball comedy from Cary Grant.

Taken 7.5/10 - Just what I fancied watching last night, an action film where you can leave your brain at the door or pop out for ten minutes in middle and not lose track of what's going on. Surprisingly Neeson kicks arse!

So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one - big hitter, the Lama - long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-galunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

Great quote.

 

I only read yesterday that Chase/Murray and Dangerfield were supposed to only be bit part characters, but they ended up getting more screen time than anyone due to their fabulousness.

The Terminator

 

Terminator 2

 

Really great. Surprisingly pretty different in style. The effects in the first looked weird especially when they switch from real Arnie to fake Arnie, but when you know it's an old film it's like you suspend your disbelief for that too and naturally give it a break.

 

Loved the whole story time line looping the loop with both films also... the future people being the cause for that very same future and all that.

:aye: How odd it is to hear the views of someone who hadnt seen these films before now!!

 

edit-I envy you!

Went to see Terminator Salvation tonight, and in my opinion the critics are wrong and I personally think it's brilliant. The action is mind-blowing, whilst the story line is slightly weak it still patches up the shambles of T3. Bale was decent, although he was overshadowed again, by Worthington who was very good. Meanwhile, the references to the old films was class, and when Arnie embarked from that chamber I couldn't help but smile, he looked real and its was a great addition. Looking forward to the next film.

 

I rate the summer BB's in this fashion.

 

Wolverine

T4

Star Trek

I reckon my opinion will be polar to Parky's given that i rated Star Trek very highly but felt let down by Wolverine. If you watch clips of the Wolverine game, that's the level of ferocity I'd want from the film. I'm so frustrated with tempering the violence and aggression in films which need those to breath, simply so they can appeal to a larger comsuner base.

 

I'd anticipate T4 being the same.

Aye but the CGI in Terminator 2 still looks ok.

The one in T2 still looks class to this day.

How To Lose Friends And Alienate People 7/10. Let down by the predictable end but thoroughly enjoyed it otherwise. I'm starting to come round to Pegg more now.

 

I thought it was sub-standard to be honest. A few funny lines but utterly forgettable. Up there with Run Fatboy, Run.
