I tried (and failed) to watch all of Black Sheep - the NZ horror flick about killer sheep. I endured the first 60 minutes of a dull, boring and unhumorous movie and couldn't be @rsed to watch the final 20 odd minutes. Avoid like dose of the clap*.

 

*May actually be more enjoyable than the movie itself.

Oh dear.

 

Just seen Dragon Wars. The cgi in the trailer looked like a bit of fun and who doesn't like watching mythical creatures slug it out - so I was expecting to enjoy this one. Woah was I wrong.

 

Easily the worst film I've seen and I've seen some stinkers. Just goes to show that throwing buckets of cash at a computer studio won't make your film a success.

 

Only watch it if you want to see just how bad films can be without a good script, cast or director.

Beowulf - don't bother :( I couldn't have cared less about any of the characters (except Angie of course :lol: ) and the best bit was the end credits (because it was over).

 

Bug - wasn't what I was expecting from the trailer at all.Thought it was going to be a pretty straight up creepy insects killing folk kinda deal... wrong! Was well impressed, disturbed and my fear of dentists is still firmly intact :shock:

Stardust is the best film I've seen in a long time!

I loved the novel, and watched the release date avidly... just happened to be sooth when it was on... Surpassed any expectations :)

 

Brilliant! I laughed, gret, jumped, and gret buckets at the end... every time I hear the Take That song, I get a 'warm fuzzy' :)

 

{Hope they think about making a movie of "Good Omens" next!!}

Roachmill - the one you want to watch is Beowulf and Grendel, directed by Sturla Gunnarson in 2005, with Gerard Butler and Ingvar E Sigurdsson in the title roles. Just check those names against where the legend comes from ... 8)

Visually gorgeous, no Hollywood glitz at all, a bloody lovely film. It's an Icelandic - British - Canadian offering, which IMHO gives it a running start over anything Hollywood is likely to come up with. (US patrons are free to disagree of course :D )
