Good films

Any good films out at the moment? Or series/box sets.

There is a film out Downton Abbey which should be good for fans of the tv series.

I just saw ‘ Official Secret(s)’ starring Keira Knightley. I enjoyed it very much.

Last week I saw the Chris Morris film ‘ The Day Shall Come’. Again I enjoyed that though some people walked out early on.

Speaking to others after the films ; mixed thoughts about the Chris Morris, more endorsements for the Keira Knightley. Personally I enjoyed them both and found them thought provoking in different ways.

Box sets drive me mad trying to find time to keep up with the plot.

Only things I've seen recently, a DVD of 'I, Daniel Blake' and the film 'Abominable'.
Liked 'em both, also, last night on telly was 'Dances With Wolves', hadn't seen that for ages and it's still a great film.

Sorry they're not really recent, daughter went to see the new Lion King film, they really enjoyed that.

i watched The Best of Men about Stoke Mandeville Spinal Ward after the war. Very good film but another oldie.

One of my favourites is "Harvey" with James Stewart as a guy with an imaginary huge white rabbit.
I also received another favourite last year on DVD, "Hobson's Choice" with John Mills.
Our local art cinema often shows oldies and one they show every year is James Stewart in "It's a Wonderful World", a Christmas feelgood movie, though it starts with him wanting to commit suicide.

I have just seen "Sorry, I Missed You" by Ken Loach who did "I, Daniel Blake" which are based on real life stories.

I’m going to see Ken Loach’s (I, Daniel Blake) latest film on Friday morning. It’s called ‘Sorry I Missed You) (?) looks to be along the lines of Daniel Blake which I found very moving. I’d better take a big hanky and wear waterproof mascara.

Oops sorry JL didn’t read your post properly.
JustLyn  Female  Cheshire 4-Nov-2019 22:03 Message #4761491
It's OK.
I'm not sure I could say I enjoyed "Sorry, I missed You" but then it isn't intended to be entertaining.
I think Loach deliberately casts unknown actors. It has a certain authenticity but unlike "I, Daniel Blake" was more linear in storyline.
See what you think.

Has anyone seen the film Joker ?
terry  Male  West Yorkshire 19-Nov-2019 10:48 Message #4762838
'Fraid I don't know any new ones - newest I've seen was 'Abominable', however a couple of older films I've found enjoyable, 'Sunshine over Leith' and 'About Time'....but they're both soft corny things.

Reach..."Has anyone seen the film Joker ?"

Not yet, was hoping to go and see that and also IT2 last half term with my eldest but we didn't find the time, sadly.

Still hoping to go and see it.

"Has anyone seen the film Joker ?"

Watch it here, Raach, if you can tolerate / risk clicking on and, (immediately), deleting the 2 pop up web pages that appear at the beginning. Be advised. Sometimes the pop ups include adult content ... but that's Putlocker for you!

Movie is here.
tumbled  Male  Gloucestershire 20-Nov-2019 17:03 Message #4762960
I use that putlockers things.....A lot of films on there....but as said, the pop ups are a pain.....but it's free....and if you get to know how to get rid of them and keep the 'proper' page, then it's ok.....but I wouldn't advise it for youngsters....or Granny....

It's my opinion that most great films have already been made.....through the years.....Of course, there are some new ones every now and again that 'make the grade'....but most are poor....already done etc...or just full of big bangs and things...

There are many good films going back many years...

One that wasn't bad, that I just watched on putlocker was 'Paper Moon'....shot in black and white....with a young Ryan O'Neal and young Tatum...

Apologies Raach, for not noticing I had been the victim of autocorrec!
