Best old movie you have rewatched.

Just finished watching LEON again.

I think it's been at least 5 years since I watched it on dvd.

Upgraded to Blu-ray off eBay for a couple of quid.

 

Unlike some of my favourite action films like John Wick and Pacific Ring which help to showcase a good AV system, although Leon has action a plenty, it supplements a gripping story with emotional performances from Jean Reno and Natalie Portman.

Even Gary Oldman was in his element.

Don't get me wrong though, the score to the film by Serra is fantastic and really makes use of the subs in a system.

Icing on the cake was Sting's song after the tear jerking ending.

 

 

 

What have you rated highly recently whilst rummaging in your back catalogue?

I don't watch many films; I think the last film I actually went to see was 2 smoking barrels. The film I keep seeing on TV is Independence Day (It was on last night). If only that t!t Goldblum wasn't in it, I would have probably watched it again.

Leon is a great film B)

 

Last thing I watched was the Bourne series which although good is looking dated. Shawshank is a another I could watch over.

Wtf is wrong with you people?!?! Independence Day is one of my favourite films ever, right up there with Jurassic Park and Aliens! Honestly love it so much, I can recite it word for word which drives the other half crazy when we’re watching it :lol:

Independence Day I get. Aliens is absolutely awesome. However, Daniel, you have let yourself down by using the words “Jurassic” and “Park” together in that sentence.


On the bright side it’s not too late for you to blame it on lockdown, but I urge you to seek help.

 

Jurassic Park indeed. :rolleyes:

Aliens is a great shout. Jurassic Park is 10 times the movie Independence Day will ever be. The scene when he thinks he's stalking the raptors, but they're stalking him, is just perfect - clever girl.

 

Not one of them is fit to lace the boots of Predator.

For the avoidance of any doubt, I didn't say Independence Day was good bad or indifferent.   I have no opinion on any films at all as I haven't seen many ... probably due to my inability to concentrate on one thing for the period required.  Hell, I even mess about on t'intanet whilst watching TV, playing guitar and picking my nose.   :lol:

We’re no longer friends. JP is immense. 
 

I get chills whenever I hear the theme tune, which I have in my music collection so comes up occasionally in the car B)

Predator is indeed a classic, but it can’t hold a candle to Aliens. But then we start down the AvP conversation, and no one wants to go there :lol:

Bought the Alien Anthology Blu-ray boxset for £7.99 a couple weeks ago.

I remember paying £20 just for the ALIENS region 1 import DVD that had to be played on a chipped dvd player.

I'm old fashioned and still like to have the physical discs of my favourites:blush:

Can't beat physical media (yet) the UHD streams aren't a patch on the bit rates of the real deal discs.

 

I had a multi region DVD player, possibly even 1 MR disc!

Where would you like me to start? :lol:

 

I mean I enjoyed it as I love the franchises, but it’s not a great film by any means. 

 

In fairness, there were fundamentally only two problems with AvP. In no particular order, they were:

The concept.

The execution.

 

 

Also in no particular order:

Pulp Fiction,

Reservior Dogs,

Empire Strikes Back,

Mallrats,

Dogma,

Shawshank Redemption,

Aliens,

Saving Private Ryan,

Goodfellas,

Die Hard,

Die Hard 2,

Terminator 2,

Human Traffic,

At a push, Falling Down - it's not a great film, but it's re-watchable.

Human Traffic was the film of my youth, perfectly captures the era and the music. 
 

I said nice one bruv!!!
