    Absolute ****. I thought it was just angry fans being OTT, and I even liked the prequels, but it was genuinely terrible.

    I think I've heard it best described an emporer has no clothes moment for JJ Abrams. Personally I've never been a huge fan but I did enjoy his some of his stuff beforehand. But RoS really did prove he absolutely is a filmmaker with nothing to say other than to regurgitate nostalgia.

    It's also a very badly made film with at least another few rounds required in the editing suite.

    I saw Dial M For Murder starring Ray Milland and Grace Kelly last night on the Movies! channel. Alfred Hitchcock was an extraordinary Film and TV director. :cool:

    Watched it last night, really liked it. Don't know how well it would have hit personally without being a huge Boss fan, or watching with my Dad, who grew up in England, lived in Luton for a bit and is only a few years older, so he explained a lot. Loved the badlands scene in the diner and his first listen to Dancing in the Dark and The Promise Land in particular.

    Rewatching Rainman. Must say that Tom Cruise is very underrated in this film. His character is the one who changes as the film progresses. Hoffman’s performance, of course, as Raymond is superb as the autistic savant.

    I think I read somewhere that Hoffman was pretty annoyed that he got all the plaudits for that film when its Cruise who does all the real acting work.

    I wouldn’t be surprised. Cruise didn’t even get nominated for best actor or supporting actor for that year. Although in the supporting actor category no argument from me going to Kevin Klein in a Fish called Wanda. One day I am sure Cruise will in a lifetime achievement one. But just fell into that “pretty boy” actor, which the academy didn’t reward/like at the time. But you look at Leo and Brad Pitt have since won in their own right.

    I just saw this film for the first time (it was released in 2006) and is now streaming on Showtime. I really liked it. Good story, good acting and good cinematography. :cool:

    He was a genius. North by northwest is my favorite of his films but the rest are great too. Rare window is mainly filmed in one room with one man. Only Hitchcock could make that entertaining.

    Vertigo is my favorite Hitchcock film, but I agree with you that they're all great.

    The American. Slow, cat and mouse thriller. Seen it before, but on netflix. Very underrated.

    An old 1980s psycho thriller, but it was actually quite good.

    Seven Years in Tibet (1997) from Brad Pitt. Wonderful film.
