    @mattjoes Yes you’re right, a masterful score by Ennio Morricone, giving the film a lot of atmosphere. Too bad the track “Magic and Ecstacy” isn’t used in the film.

    I didn't know that! Shame, it belongs in a film... any film!

    I think it plays over the end credits of an alernate cut of the movie.
  • Been on my to-see list for some long time. Have not found a copy yet. One day, one day...

    I don't know if it is of any use, but there is a UK R2 5 disc set on DVD, comes with a nice glossy booklet. Highly recommended to horror fans, those undead Templars are one of the more unique horror creations.

    That sounds like a pretty cool set, but I can't play R2s this side of the pond I'm afraid.

    Ah, in that case, I think the same set was released on R1, by Blue Underground (Anchor Bay handled the R2 release).

    EDIT
    Thought so.

    Same set, just different region, distributor, and the shape of the box. You still get the 5th disc, as well as the Blind Dead booklet.
  • Wow, that is a very cool housing. A bit pricey for DVDs these days, but still very cool. I'll have to see if I can find a way of watching one or two of these films to see if they're my thing.

    so much fun this movie.


    But would you call it 'bad' - yes, it's totally bonkers (and I love it), but don't know if it's bad. First time I saw it I came in from the pub half-cut, put on Channel 4 (UK) and it was about 10-15 mins in, was just about to go to bed and then the naked girl turns up, "hmm, think I'll watch a bit more of this…" watched to the end and thought WTF! Now have the Arrow Video blu-ray and it looks awesome.

    I guess we need to define what's bad. When I started this thread I meant something that is universally recognized as bad. Reviews are unanimous, there may be a consensus among the public, etc. Now many movies that were deemed "bad" have been reassessed, especially old horror movies with low production value.

    Lifeforce is one of my favourite films I have the Extended Cut on Bluray, it's a insanely inventive film, such a shame it pretty much ended Tobe Hoopers career. If I remember correctly Lifeforce bombing effected the budget on Superman IV

    Star Wars Prequels

    Transformers movies

  • I do quite enjoy the first Transformers film. Thrilling action and hits all the right emotional buttons. I can fess to liking that one quite unashamedly.

    I just like the crazy action and three of the Transformers films have IMAX sequences, I'll buy anything shot with IMAX cameras ;))

  • They do do the massive, sprawling action sequences remarkably well. I just recently saw Age of Extinction for the first time. All that stuff in Hong Kong was incredible. Will have to check out Last Knight next.

    Last Knight was shot around 90 per cent in IMAX the visuals are fantastic on a big screen.

    I took my son to see Dark of the Moon in the cinema, and it was really well done.

    My favourite of the series, the Chicago battle is pretty awesome, and Hobo Megatron is funny.

    The 3d was good as well.

    @chrisisall I watched Citizen Toxie today specifically to look for you!
    I knew you were in the Saturn (good driving!) but couldn’t find you anywhere- can you help me out?

    Wow, sorry man, I just now saw this.
    During the car chase a pedestrian jumps out of the way- that's me.
    In the Nazi fight I'm one of the guys that gets shot, and also the guy that Toxie throws over a wall.
    I'm also a cop in one of the wide shots, but you can't really make me out.

    I just love „Help!“ starring The Beatles. It‘s some truly insane movie but I find it highly entertaining and funny.

    It's nuts, but SO funny. Plus: songs.
  • Awesome @chrisisall I definitely recognize you there!

    Isn't it meant to be a good movie?

    I'm rewatching a childhood favourite: John the Fearless. Flemish animation. It's really bad in many ways but I'm having a ball all the same. Anybody else knows it?

    Independence Day: Resurgence (I did not list the first one since that's generally regarded as a good movie)

    It is? I find the first one to be an unimaginative, lazy, cynical, complacent, stupid blockbuster. I never considered it good.

    I agree, think I’d give that one 2 out of 10 if I’m generous.

    Independence Day is horrible in every way.

    I'm a big Star Trek fan and there is one movie that always gets spit on and while I agree it's quite inept I can't help but love it. And that movie is

    First off, there's a certain amount of nostalgia attached to it for me since The Final Frontier was the first Star Trek movie I saw in theaters, back in '89 when I was 10 years old. It's completely ridiculous but it's a fun ride that makes me laugh. It's one hell of an entertaining movie, say what you will. I'd rather watch it that watch Nemesis any time soon. Blah film. The Final Frontier is a kick. Check your brain in at the door and have some fun.

    I've heard but good things about it. Never heard someone criticize it.

    Sarcasm? That movie got torn to shreds across the board. One of the worst movies I've ever seen, I think.

    I don't like it but would take it over any of the TNG movies. They failed big time with TFF but at least they tried. And there was one or two good lines of dialogue.

    Regarding ID4 I can't even appreciate it as a bad movie. It's a despicably bad movie.
