Movie confessions

I have to admit to not being a Bond fan. They all blend into the one film for me, and it's not a good film!

I'm not myself particularly. The first one I actually really liked and watched several times of my own accord was Casino Royale, maybe because it took such a different approach. I think it's the best Bond film and by far my favourite.

The others are just a result of growing up in the UK! Bank holiday and Christmas staples. For me too they all kind of merge into one big vague spy adventure. I could tell you that in one there's an underwater base but I couldn't tell you which one, or how Bond got there (or who the villain is).

I haven't seen - nor am I interested in - any of the Nolan Batman films.

I don't think Batman, nor Superman for that matter, are interesting characters (based only on films, I don't read comics).

So you didn't like the Burton films either?

I love the Step Up films and went to see the third one in 3D at the cinema and it was bloody amazing!

And for a tv confession I own all the seasons dvd box sets for Dawsons Creek :D

I also own all of Dawsons Creek and also watch them on Netflix. It must be my favourite TV show of all time.

I have a confession/rule - if the words "M. Night Shyamalan" appear in the starting credits, I switch off the film.

Just to add more fuel to the fire, I'd rather watch The Happening again than Lost in Translation and The Happening is probably one of the worst films I've ever seen.

Superman I understand. It's just a bit boring that here's a man that can do anything. Where's the challenge?

But I love Batman and his world. I find him extremely interesting. Burtons first Batman is great and still holds up IMO, even with Nolans films being so good.

I watched the first half hour or so of Batman Returns last night, and I do like the feel of Gotham - I mean, it's a very typical Burton aesthetic, but I think it works much better here than in his other films because it's so suited to the madness of the city and its inhabitants. And I think Michael Keaton is a great Batman, but I can't make up my mind whether I like his Bruce Wayne - the contrast between the two is good, though.

Does anyone?

They where a bit hammy at the time and have aged very badly. Although I may not be the best judge as I'm not a fan of his work at all.

I like them for the same reasons as Addams Family, entertaining and lots of dark humour. Nolan's movies are unbelievably pompous. Which has just reminded me about Inception, which I cannot stomach on any level.

I can understand people not liking Inception, they're entitled to their viewpoint, as always. It's the people that scream "I hated it, I didn't understand a fucking thing" that I don't get.

Are you completely stupid?

Remove the whole tiresome pub debates over what it all means and on face value, you're left with a film that explains everything.

It's not the film's fault, that you are an idiot, with a low attention span.

Another fan of the Step Up films here, mainly the 3rd one tbh. Even lordcookie I remember was impressed by the dance sequences and gave it a sort of thumbs up. They are terrible films like pretty much every street dance film ever made, but 3D has almost the whole of the LXD crew in it and some fantastic choreography.

I think the last 30/40 mins of Aliens is really, really bad (basically from when Ripley reaches Bishop and says she's going on her rescue mission). I also think the worst line in the film by far is Ripley's "Get away from her, you bitch!"

OT but I'm guessing the whole "Nuke from orbit..." meme came from Aliens? I never knew that (although I haven't seen Aliens for probably 15 years so the line wouldn't have been familiar).

Another big confession for me is that, with the exception of the Transformers films and Pearl Harbour, I fucking love Michael Bays movies. I think Bad Boys 2 is genuinely brilliant in its own batshit insane way, and it's one of my favourite action films fullstop in recent years. I really, really want a bluray of it quite badly :( I want Bay to stop ruining my childhood memories with a series he doesn't understand and get back to cops quipping shitty one liners and shooting other fools quite violently whilst swearing a lot.
