I did watch both The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) and The Bourne Legacy (2012) over the last two nights and enjoyed both.
I have a little more understanding now of the story to date which I hope sets me up for a good experience in the next installment :up:

I watched Ghostbusters in potato quality :)

Feig ? is a fucking idiot. I was wondering how so much dead pan ended up in this film and I didn't know he produced The Office. So there you go, The Office was shit.

It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be but it's pretty close. The black women was good, can't really say much more than that. Everything else in the movie was poor, writing / comedy / characters... name it and it was in the bad list.

You might aswell watch this instead -

This thing annoyed the fuck outta me too, it's one of those things you get at a fair ground -



It was just as bad as when I seen this -



See those 2 red things front and centre ?, well they're barcode scanners from 2002/3, I know cos when I worked in sales I needed to handle that model every fucking day. It ruined ST even more for me cos it just made Kumar / Sulu look like he was going to sell me a pack of fags. Whenever I see that bridge all I see is them >:E

Also GB, Jenine is played by Thor who was a bumbling idiot receptionist. Didn't quite see the point of that, Jenine was a good character.

I plan to be seeing Star Trek in the next day or so and I'll be looking for those 2 red things you point out losCHUNK :smirk:

Me, well not a movie but I have been watching a TV series called Indian Summers. Just finished the tenth episode here last night and on our ABC TV channel (advertisement free) there were no annoying advertisements to ruin the telling of the story episode to episode :up:

In two words, really good! Get a chance and the time it is a great watch.

Read about it on the IMDB and just for you the Wiki

Shit, that's what I was afraid of, seeing it tomorrow night. The series peaked with Ultimatum anyways so I don't have high expectations.

How was it compared to Legacy?

Legacy was miles better just because of the drone bit at the beginning. You know that motorcycle chase scene at the end of Legacy that's twice as long as it should be? That's pretty much the entire new Bourne movie with retarded "zoom ,enhance" technobabble in between.

Also, the acting seemed shit by everyone but Tommy Lee Jones. Julia Stiles lines were so awful it was laughable.

So dissapointing.

well that sucks. that was pretty much the only movie i'm interested in seeing right now

Legacy was good up to the motorcycle chase, which wasn't epic enough to be a finale

Wake In Fright

Australian classic about how fucked up the small towns in the Outback are and about the descent into the depths of animal desire.

Bourne - 7/10

Plot's pretty weak but overall it's a solid action romp.

Agreed, he always kills it in law enforcement roles. I think he'd make a really badass old Joker. And yeah, Julia was atrocious, good thing
we didn't have to listen to her for long.


Also, 2016 has been the year of garbage movies so in direct comparison Bourne looks a lot better.

Jason Bourne (2016)

I have been lucky enough to watch through all previus Bourne movies before seeing this on in the last hours.
I enjoyed it from the beginning to end.
IMDB
7.5/10

I got an earlier movie in as well... Two movies in one day :D

Love & Friendship (2016)

Costume drama if you'd never heard of it..

Quote:
Storyline
Set in the 1790s, Love and Friendship centers on beautiful widow Lady Susan Vernon, who has come to the estate of her in-laws to wait out colorful rumors about her dalliances circulating through polite society. Whilst there, she decides to secure a husband for herself and her rather reluctant debutante daughter, Frederica.

IMDB
Yes, another enjoyable watch, slightly better scoring because it wasn't another Bourne :smirk:
8/10

Julia Stiles has never been very good in my opinion.

Tommy was brilliant.

Zoom and Enhance sucked huge balls.

Lots of stuff wrong with Bourne but I quite enjoyed it really...can't put my finger on why. Might be because I could see loads of places I have been recently...like point them out. Always good when you can relate?

Hmmm, good point. However, it wasn't that Fury Road's plot wasn't any good, it was just very simple.

Take the Land Before Time as an example. Great children's flick, but the plot was super simple. Little dinosaur is separated from family, goes on an adventure to find them, finds them. Simple plot, but not weak...

So what you're saying is, a movie with a weak plot can be 8/10 ? ;)

Guardians of the Galaxy was another that popped into my head, but figured a lot more would rate Fury Road higher.

It's like Avatar n all, I fucking hated that film but I know plenty that'll say it was epic. Interstellar, shall we go on ?

I rewatched Fury Road n all, man I fucking love this film.

It's lacking and therefore weak. The 1st half of the movie is to get to the 'green belt' or someshit, that's literally all it is.

Ya know, like Waterworld where they try to find land - the film just made up for it in other ways...

The art was fantastic though. A number of scenes I would have sworn that they cheated and used video footage instead of CG. Totally watched for the scenery.

That much is true. The same for Finding Dory, there were times the plastic-y fish ruined the otherwise photorealistic shot.

The Piper short animation that played before Finding Dory was so much better than the main film.

Damn, so I'm the only one who thought Bourne was shit? This may require a second viewing.
The "asset" was so boring he just shot everything.

I agree. Pixar shorts are historically the best.
