    Re: Film 17

    Can I just be the first to say that I recently watched The Autopsy of Jane Doe.
    Really good, tight little horror film. just over an hour and twenty in length and for the first 30mins you could be watching CSI or something like that, then the horror starts creeping in.
    no jump scares, just creepy and unsettling.

    This is what Stephen King had to say about it, which made me seek it out.

    Hope you enjoy it, its not really up there with Alien but its the best horror I've seen in ages, and I'm a fan of horror, just fed up with jump scares.

    Same as me, a few weeks ago I found a thread on Reddit that listed a bunch of horror films that didn't rely on jump scares and ended up watching quite a few but the only one that stood out was "1408", based on a Stephen King short story.

    I've still got a horror film from that list called "Stir of Echoes" to watch.

    Also, I remember watching a good horror film a good few years ago that had (yum) Nicole Kidman in it. Can't remember what it was called though.

    Just Googled Stir of Echoes and realised I did actually watch it. Not too memorable a film as you can imagine.

    Watched Hell or High Water that Welshyoot recommended in the Film 16 thread. Really good film, some great dialogue.

    I watched Bone Tomahawk with Kurt Russell, that's sort of a horror and it was pretty good. It's on Netflix.

    I thought "Silence" was good but my Missus hated it and said it was boring.
    But then again she thinks Amy Schumer is funny.

    Stumbled on Saving Mr Banks the other day. What a pleasant surprise, thoroughly enjoyed it! Made me want to try Mary Poppins for the first time since I was about 5.

    That lasted about 5 minutes

    Saving Mr Banks was excellent. I didn't expect to enjoy it - but I was totally absorbed by the story and the performances. Great writing too.

    I had free tickets for a preview screening of this and it was billed as a western.

    So I went with my old mother.

    Error.

    Yep

    By the end though we were just laughing.

    It does well at building tension all throughout it.

    Re: Film 17

    Saw a film on Netflix last night called "Unbroken" about Olympian Louis Zamperini's struggle for survival after a plane crash into the Pacific in World War 2, 47 days adrift in a raft followed by 2 years in brutal Japanese prisoner of war camps.

    Written by the Coen Brothers and directed by Angelina Jolie. After the film I was amazed about how much this guy went through I looked into how true this story was and found that it is pretty much a 100% depiction of his experiences.

    Well worth a watch.

    As an alternative to horror, we searched on Kodi for something we could both enjoy and watched Love and Friendship (2016) based on a Jane Austen novelette with the sublime Kate Beckinsale and a stellar cast. It was serenely funny.

    We got around to watching 'Arrival' the other night, I thought it was a good idea for a film, it made me think about some things that I hadn't considered before which was good, in the end though I found myself too busy thinking about the agenda rather than watching the film, now I remember why I don't watch many films.

    Saw that the other night, really good film, Desmond Doss was a very brave man, I was looking at the true story on history vs hollywood and according to them "While lowering the men down the ridge, the Japanese had a clear shot at Desmond Doss. Though it's not depicted in the movie, one Japanese soldier recalled having Desmond in his sights, but every time he went to fire, his gun jammed."
    How lucky was he?

    It was painful wasn't it? Up there with Argo in terms of being so obvious

    Hope the director doesn't do this to Blade Runner

    Just watched Allied with Brad Pitt, not a classic by any means. A bit slow but a decent way to pass a couple of hours. A solid 7/10

    The 33 on Sky Movies.

    Really enjoyed it, it's about the Chilean miners with Antonio Banderas.

    I found Argo very slow and over-rated. Bladerunner was ahead of its time but I haven't seen it since it was released so don't know if it still seems as impressive.

    Sorry guys I'm a movie nerd and assume folks know geeky stuff. The Arrival Director - Denis Villeneuve - is doing a Blade Runner sequel with Harrison Ford and Ryan Goslng
