Army of the dead on Netflix - Zach Snyder is a terrible director. This movie is all over the place and the story really makes no coherent sense. Would pass on this one unless you’re a hardcore fan of the genre.
Thank you for the warning. Is there any decent zombie film made in the last decade?Army of the dead on Netflix - Zach Snyder is a terrible director. This movie is all over the place and the story really makes no coherent sense. Would pass on this one unless you’re a hardcore fan of the genre.

Currently rereading Alan Sillitoe's Saturday Night Sunday Morning and I wanted to watch the film which I haven't seen since 1986/87 when we had the Angry Young Men as part of our O Level English syllabus. Haven't been able to find the full film on Youtube, but I've got the opening with the monologue which is classic of it's kind:
Emmanuelle was the first, and only porno film, to break it big in the UK. According to my father, everyone went to watch it at mainstream cinemas.
Matt Damon would have been way too young to be in TAPS.
I always got this confused with Taps....but after starting it last night...I realized that I never caught it.
Based in the 1950's, a standout quarterback(Brendan Fraser) from a small town gets recruited to attend a top flight prep school. His sights area set on Harvard after he finishes out the year.
He forms a tight bond with the other popular students and his roommate. All is AOK!
He then starts to fall for the "girl" of one of his crew(Matt Damon). She also falls for him. That crew member was supposed to play quarterback, but has lost that spot and his "girl". Big deal, right?
Nope....see...Brendan Fraser is Jewish...a BIG no-no at the school and during those times! After Matt Damon accidentally finds out that secret, he exposes BF and most everyone turns on him.
What happens next is a display of how someone is looked at based on their color/faith/sexual preference/etc. The way that this film captures that still existing element of society is why it is definitely worth a watch!
I've just posted about that very film on the Rugby Shirt thread.
Started this last night.
After part of a very remote diamond mine collapses, the good guys need to get rescue equipment out to the location.
Problem? It's cold as F and the only route is by truck(s) over a frozen ocean. The team and their leader definitely need a particular set of driving skills to pull this off!
Liam N is that leader and along with a few other misfits, they attempt the challenge.
I fell asleep so no review...not even a partial. I didn't fall asleep due to the movie, just had a long wknd.
Will check it out later.
The Dirty Harry films hold-up very well. If you think Magnum Force is bad, try watching the Death Wish films. They fall into the cheap pornography of violence category.I watched Dirty Harry, which was better than I remembered. But Magnum Force is terrible. One of the worst movies I've watched from beginning to end.
Also watched And Justice for All. It reminds me of Serpico to see Pacino play a young idealist. Nice characters and acting all around.
