Watched a couple of documentary films recently that were both terrific.

King of Kong, a story about one mans (Steve Wiebe) quest to break the record for arcade style Donkey Kong.

and

Chasing Ghosts, a story about the rise of competitive gaming in the US from the late 70s to mid 80s.

More details see wiki pages.

Both were really enjoyable though, a real life look at people's lifes and how competitive life is.

The King of Kong

Chasing Ghosts

Anybody on here seen either film?

Off to the smoke tomorrow to watch a load of new stuff, in Sony 4K HD Digital on the big screen (not some wanky download Biddy).

Inception, Toy Story 3, Despicable Me, The A Team, Knight and Day and (hopefully) the Expendables :tu:

Hot tub time machine - 3/5 quite funny.

She's out of my league - 2/5 not as funny as you would expect, too long, but the lead girl is nice

I love you philip morris - 4/5 - funny, based on true events, good story, would recommend it.

Hurt Locker - 4/5 great movie, real on-edge stuff

Watched Shanghai over the weekend. Didn't know anything about it but had generated a fair bit of interest here in Singapore.

Excellent stuff. Dark, tense, visually stunning.

Knight and Day - chick flick, loads of set pieces with not much holding it together

The Hole - not great but aimed at a younger audience

Despicable Me - Really annoying, maybe I was tired

Toy Story 3 - superb (as you would expect). Few tears here and there

The A Team - surprise surprise, fan bleedin tastic. Want to see it again "I think he's trying to fly the tank" :)

I went to see Predators last night and it was bloody great. It does what it says on the tin - big monsters hunting humans on a faraway planet. Brilliant! It's left open for sequels which should be great.

I to see Predators the other day too.

With the original Predator 1987 movie being a personal favorite of mine, I though the new movie was awful.

Arnie and the former cast will never be bettered imo.

ah, did this mean the new one and not the original? In which case I take back my comment and agree whole heartedly.

As great as Jackie Chan is, they could have at least got a Japanese actor to do the Mr. Myagi part. Getting someone from Honk Kong to play it is like getting a Frenchman to play someone from Scotland, or getting someone from Scotland to play an Egyptian whose lived a long time in Spain.

According to Digital Spy Police Academy 8 will start filming next year for a 2012 release, many of the original cast will be in it, bet you can't wait can you.

Yey, Sounds brilliant, original and just what Hollywood needs. (although I do love Police Academy 1 to 3)

Watched Hot Tub Time Machine, Loved it.

I do think people around the mid 20's and over will really like it.Or anyone who would like to go back and change a few things.

I saw Inception last night and I'm still recovering from it. It's a hulking behemoth of film. It's exciting, mind-bending, unbelievably smart and incredible to look at. Nolan as a director is absolutely at the top of his game.
