Movie talk


After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I don't know where the last 'general movie chit chat' thread went so here's another...

I just watched the Midnight Meat Train. I heard it was pretty poor but I thought I'd give it a go and despite the incredibly bad cgi I got about half way through thinking it wasn't that bad. But then it just got silly at the end and yes it is a bit shite.

Then I watched Timecrimes (Los Cronocrimenes) which was awesome. Seriously. I really wanted to see this at FrightFest in the summer but they showed it during a day I was working so I couldn't go. Anyway, it's a brilliant film. Basically it involves time-travel but I won't go into it as it'll just give it away and hurt my head. Just watch it. I saw Primer a few years ago, a low-budget time-travel film which I got all excited about until I watched it and realised it was a pile of wank. I had a bad feeling that Timecrimes would also disappoint me but it didn't. It's so simple (in a way) with a small cast and the lead character, some normal bloke, is just perfect. Anyone else seen it?
