Oh shit yeah, The Raid 2! Wish i'd seen that in the cinema.

I bet the Under The Skin with the orchestra was epic alright. Seen Psycho Live like that & it was class.

Out of all those films Calvary is the one I couldn't be bothered about. McDonagh is nowhere near as smart as he thinks he is. Or as his brother. Thought The Guard was a massively over-hyped let-down too. Also, I've read here Gillen's accent is fucking all over the shop.

Not that anyone will be surprised, but Mrs Brown's Boys the Movie is total and utter fucking shite. Beyond terrible.

The only thing remotely amusing about it was a wilhelm scream near the end.

Were you at a premiere or something?

Did you go it of your own volition?

Went to see the new Transformers movie last night

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I don't understand how they can't make these movies with even a semi coherent plot, script, or screenplay.

Even if they're plumbing the depths of lowest common denominator shite, it still shouldn't be this bad. It's like it was written by a 10 year old boy, who has no mates to tell him to cop the fuck on.

And I really don't think it's supposed to be tongue in cheek 'so bad it's cheese-tastically good'. It's just fucking dreadful.

I did cheer inside though when Optimus Prime sliced up the bad cunt at the end

When the main guy (Mark Wahlberg) first meets his daughter's boyfriend, who has to win the respect of his girlfriend's dad by acting the hero, the three of them are arguing over the fact that he's 20 and the daughter's only 17.

Yer man goes and reels off all these statutory rape laws, and even has the relevant legislation laminated in his wallet to prove that it's 'legit'. I think it's supposed to be this cool defiant act of rebellious love but... he sounds like a fucking paedo. Was splitting my hole laughing through a lot of it

And it's over 2 and a half hours long. And the special effects aren't even that impressive, just looks like a PS4 game.

Plus points: Mark Wahlberg over Shia LeBeouf; it's maybe better than going on facebook for 3 hours; cinema popcorn.

Loses marks for: Being pure shite


And I'm not fucking spoilering Transformers plot points

It's the lowest ranked of the 4, which is impressive considering the 2nd is probably the worst film of all time.
I did like one scene in the third one, the bit with Chicago being blown apart and the soldiers sliding down a shattered skyscraper, brilliant special effects, more impressive than what Avengers did with the same idea.

All because he doesn't get to yell "No no no no no no nooooo" over and over in the new Transformers film.

i can't tell whether this is a genuine meltdown or a cleverly crafted attempt to distance himself from his existing commercial persona and be seen as a more out there/left field actor...see: james franco, joaquin phoenix

Did he go to Barry's? He should have went to Barrys.

Yeah Transformers 4 is muck, and Michael Bay is a perv. The amount of times the camera tracks slowly up yer one's legs is really creepy.

I remember coming out of that premiere early and posting on here that it was the worst movie is ever seen. Nobody believed me because they all thought the first one was great
