What films have you seen recently?

I've finally got round to watching The Hobbit films.  I thought the first one was a bit of a slog, and ended up fast forwarding a few bits, but the 2nd and 3rd films were much better, although I did think that the love triangle was superfluous, and sometimes with all the different battles going on I wasn't always sure who was fighting who exactly!  It was of course very padded out and no way should it have been 3 films, two would have been stretching it but overall I thought they were better than I expected.  Not as good as LotR though, however I did think Martin Freeman was well cast as Bilbo and was excellent in the role.

I watched the film version of "The Dry" last night (it's based on Jane Harper's book), it was quite good, a bit slow to start but stuck pretty closely to the book.  A bit depressing though!  I think the book was better paced and had more character development.

I hadn't read the book but watched the film last week and I did like it

I have seen the most recent "Fast and Furious" movie with a friend who said I was the only person she knew who would go with her.  I enjoy car chase scenes, so was very happy with that.

 

Saw the new James Bond movie.  Daniel Craig is right to leave now.  This Bond is such a man of physical action that he has become increasingly unbelievable as someone who can do all this stuff.  I thought Rami Malik was a good bad guy.  Not as menacing as Javier Bardem, but more insane.

 

Saw "Dune" on TV.  Excellent, but will want to see it in a theater if I can.

 

But on Saturday night, I went with friends to see "French Dispatch" and loved it.  I think Wes Anderson films are always enjoyable, but this one was particularly so.  It seems like every actor in the world asked to be in this movie, so the acting is terrific.  The husband of the couple I went with grew up in a small town in the Texas panhandle (meaning, nowhere) and his father ran that town's newspaper, so I knew he would love it.  He and his wife were almost choked up at the end of the movie.

I saw Dune in our local cinema which has a big screen about 2 months ago (it came out in France much earlier than the UK and US) and yes, I'd say you definitely need to see it on a large screen. I'm so pleased they're going ahead with part 2.
