    Escape From Sobibor 8/10 very good, I'm not going to say too much as I think anyone who has seen it will know and anyone who hasn't will find out as they should watch it

    That's very generous for Thunderdome but the rest were just great and instantly quotable! I swear I can recite the whole of Mad Max 2 off the top of my head.

    and generous for MM2, decent film but I could argue 8/10 for MM3 is closer to the mark than 10/10 for MM2

    McKenna's Gold 7.5/10 interesting storyline, bit of a disappointing finale but quite a few actors you'd recognise including old skool batwoman, old skool penguin, kojak, Tuco (Eastwood's mate in Good, Bad, Ugly) and a host of stars who are less famous in single roles.

    You're right for scoring purposes but Mad Max 1 and 2, amongst other films, were pretty much played constantly by me and my brother growing up and I have a lot of fond memories of them. I didn't really have the same "relationship" with Thunderdome.

    Whilst I don't hold IMDB ratings in much higher regard than FIFA rankings, MM1 got 7/10, MM2 got 7.6 and MM3/Beyond Thunderdome got 6.2. Even if taken as a rough guide then 6.2 is closer to 8 than 7.6 is to 10....

    I do favour originals in most cases, had this discussion in the office some months ago as to film series/pairs of films where the 2nd was better than the 1st. Some will say Star Wars Episode V, I wouldn't, but I struggle still to think of many valid examples.

    Did the same thing for remakes over originals, might be worth a thread, I think I may start one.

    I think I'd score MM2 more and Thunderdome less than IMDB.

    That's a good one though, pairs of movies where the sequel is the best. I can think of plenty of film series (more than 2 films) where the sequel beats the original but only one I can think of is How to Train Your Dragon 2 which I watched recently.

    I'll probably have to watch it a few times. I actually think Da Vinci Code got better after a few watches. Probably cause i was too critical from the book

    When I was in the hospital a long while back I think I must have watched National Treasure a good 30+ times in one week.

    Proper enjoyable films. It will interesting to see how Inferno goes.

    Da Vinci i seemed to dislike Hanks mainly because i had this view from the book that Langdon was more a Harrison Ford than Hanks and he came across very wooden, He was also surrounded by actors who seemed to work well which in turn made him look worse. Angels and Demons he was more suited to the role but then you had Ewan McGregor being absolutely awful.

    In Inferno there are no big names making up the cast really, so i have a feeling this my work the best.

    I liked it, and i'm usually not a fan of such movies (in fact, i typically don't watch any movie Anne Hathaway is in).

    National Treasure was good, I think the sequel more or less killed the prospects of a third

    And I am annoyed yet another programme is being churned out with a title the same as a film, fed up of reading programme titles that look like they should be films but aren't.

    I, Frankenstein 3.5/10 Gave up half an hour in so that rating is based on as much of it as I could bear. Some good ideas, but not enough substance and the swirling rapid "descending" of the demons didn't really work for me. Shame as it looked as if it might be quite good, wish I'd not persuaded myself to try this instead of watching Licence To Kill.




    Think Wrong Turn might be on tonight, I know I watched something after McKenna's Gold but can't remember what

    National Treasure 2 made over 450 million at the Box Office. I read they all want to make a 3rd its just making sure the story is the original.

    If you're trying to say it is a good film based on takings, I'm sure it won't be the first time lots of people went to see a sequel hoping it was as good as the original/previous one

    Crystal Skulls made $786m worldwide, I rest my case

    I wouldn't mind a 3rd, but the longer between original(s) and 3rd/subsequent the weaker they suffer. You may be right about them making a 3rd, but I'd be quite surprised and suspect probably disappointed with it.

    Tears Of The Sun 8.5 granted on this watching I was tired and didn't get to the end, but it is brilliantly done. It shows the brutality of domestic uprising, as does Blood Diamond which I had got out the cabinet and am looking to watch again.

    Jason and the Argonauts 5/10 I have no issue with the monster effects, this however was a bit dull paced and not a lot happening for a fantasy adventure.

    Knight Rider 2000 3.5/10 KITT in kit form really didn't work, he was shed of his fantastic black car/body and the "Knight 4000" is the most awful looking car I've ever seen, well probably not but it is ugly. Plot was ok, guns banned from wherever it was in US, someone is still using guns against the modernistic tazer armed police and turns out you are struggling to work out who the enemy is, but it wasn't well executed.

    Seems I'm about 1 point less generous than IMDB. I might consider bumping it up by a half as I now see who voiced KITT, and it is the same dude who voiced the originals and some people may know him as Mr Feeny out of Boy Meets World.

    Absolutely love it - "I know this, I know this, bum da da da da, bum da da da da..............it's bugs bunny" (16m in)"

    And I see Al out of Home Improvement not long after Wagner,

    rewatched Blood Diamond 8/10 yesterday, plenty of interest even if the overall plot of DiCrapio badly wanting a blood diamond he's never seen on the basis of a description was a bit naff, and some great scenes.

    Olympus has Fallen.

    Yeah, no brain required. Suited my mood last night. 5/10

    September of Shiraz 7/10

    Can't beat a bit of persecution in Iraq. Salma Hayek beautiful as ever but not right for that role.
    Decent flick all the same.
