I've seen this kind of thread on other forums I use, but they're now getting unmanageable with over 1000 replies, so I figured why not start it fresh on Geekzone??  Hopefully it takes off :)

Basically - tell us the last movie (or couple of movies) you watched, and what you thought about it.  I'll get things started:

30 Days of Night
:  Based on a graphic novel series of the same name, and filmed in NZ with mainly NZ actors.  Stars Josh Hartnett, Melissa George and loads of Kiwi actors that I can't quite place, except Marge from old Shorty!!   It's a vampire flick set in Alaska where the sun disappears for 30+ days each year bringing perpetual night with it....good environment for vampires to thrive.  Anyway, I enjoyed it but found it predictable.  The Kiwi-American accents were cringeworthy and the vampire dialogue was infantile, but the imagery and aesthetic was really disturbing.  All in all it's a good vampire/horror flick and it totally cr@ps on things like The Ring and all those Japanese horror clones.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull:  Aside from the tinnitus I got from watching this at The Embassy (jk - but it WAS loud!) I really enjoyed this.  It was completely over the top like all Indy movies.  The stunts and action sequences were very impressive.  Harrison Ford can clearly still kick some arse!  I was pleasantly surprised by this considering my apprehension for the last few months leading up to it.  It's a great action-adventure.  I just hope it's the last one.

P.S. If you're 6'4" or over, avoid row G of the Platinum Seats at The Embassy - leg room is awful!

Over to the masses....

Incredibles 2.




A bit like The Jetsons, but without the charm of Hanna Barbera.



We have had incredibles 1 for a long time, and we loved it, incredibles 2 wasn't as good in most ways, but was still reasonably good. 


My kids 6 and 9 loved both movies and in the prime day sale on amazon i picked up the lego incredibles 2 game for next to nothing and they have had a fantastic time playing it. The giggles and joy coming from our lounge managed to put a big smile on my face.. I digress.
