Cheers! That was my thought too. Plus my mate doesn't like when I scream like a girl in the cinema, so perhaps I should watch all horrors at home hehe

hehe I never actually screamed outloud till I saw ending of Chernobyl Diaries, but I certainly wasn’t the only one who did. My mate said she screamed because I did. I don’t believe her.

I watched,

The Cabin in the Woods,

Very poor, terrible acting and the plot sucked.

A perfect example of 'all the best bits in the trailer'

3/10

Caught a few on the plane yesterday.

The Hunter - Willem Defoe tracking down the Tasmanian Tiger. A morose 7/10.

The Amazing Spiderman - OK but pointless reboot. No better than Maguire's version. 6/10

Killer Joe - Matthew McConaughy is hitman/cop in hicksville, Texas. Brutal and misogynistic with interesting use of KFC. 7/10

The Devil Inside - 8/10 Surprisingly enjoyed this more than what I probably should have. Some gruesome bits in it which surely should have made it a 18 Cert. I heard quite a few people not liking this but if you like the Paranormal Activity series then you should defo like this.

I completely agree, up to about 45 mins (perhaps even 30mins) into the film, because that's when I turned it off.

I was sat thinking to myself "I simply do not care what happens, and could be doing something far more valuable with my time" so turned it off. Very rare for me to do that to a film, even a poor one!
Bugger, Blockbusters just sent that to me. Oh well ill give it a watch, nothing to lose.
Wasn't as bad as all that IMHO. Certainly not a classic but watchable none the less.
Agree. I quite liked it. A little bit LOTR, but without the story, so to speak.
Perhaps it was just my mood at the time, I don't know - but I can't recall the last time I turned a film off because I didn't care, if you see what I mean smile Maybe that one just particularly flicked my "crap" buttons biggrin

I don't think snow white helped. all she ever did was look, slightly open mouthed, at the camera.

Did either of you know how bad it was going to be before you watched it? If so, what possessed you?!

I have just read the parental guide on IMDB and, well, I just can't believe anyone would make that let alone watch it!

Makes A Serbian Film sound like Bambi.

I'd watched the first one after hearing everyone talk about it. It was nasty but not 'that' bad

Hadn't heard anything about the second one and just decided to give it a watch as I was a bit bored the other night. Had no idea it was going to be as graphic/sick as it was

Fair play, not that I am questioning your sanity or freedom to watch whatever you want. smile

Probably not one to rent on a first date...

Horrible Bosses 8/10. Bloody hilarious loved it.
I saw this last night. Wasn't expecting much but really enjoyed it and some laugh out loud moments. Oh and Jennifer Aniston in pretty much just a doctors coat cloud9
Cheers for the tip, quite good fun. Kevin Spacey was superb as the brutal office boss. "He's hiding behind fingerflage!" hehe

I remember arguing with a mate about Jennifer Aniston versus Angelina Jolie; oh gawd maybe he was right.

Prometheus
Well I liked it.

Absolutley gorgeous visuals
Fassbender was good
Story was acceptable
and I'm not getting into the geekery of whether the vehicles were RHD last time we saw them or if the Alien was anatomically correct...not interested in that.


Negatives? I didn't care about any of the characters, so the violence and drama had a quite heavily reduced impact.

I just loved the look of it all really... 6.5/10

I agree with this.
I think a lot of the hatred for it is down to expectations. Like many, I esxcitedly went to the cinema to see it expecting something of the calibre of Aliens but with 20 years of technology advance.
Sadly it fell way short of expectations which exaggerated the ordinariness.
As a stand-alone film with no expectations it would have been reasonably good. FOr me,, the expectation was just too high so it was a massive dissapointement.

Hmmm kind of makes things clearer. Probably worth another watch now I understand it a little

Any recommendations for films to watch? Running out of stuff to watch
