What DVD are you watching lately?

I have BBC's Persuasion on, but I can't really get into. I've heard thought that BBC's Sense & Sensibility is good. Of course I"ve watched the Ang Lee Emma Thompson version which is superb... I may get it this week to see  :P

Masters of Horror: Family (John Landis). AWESOME

Peacock
I thought this was really good; my type of movie! It's not action packed, but good story, good acting, interesting. Psychological thriller type. 4/5

Outlander
Weird ass movie. Boring in parts. 2/5

Red Planet
Pretty good. There's nothing really wrong with it, but I didn't think it all came together totally. P liked it more. 3/5

Conviction.

Very good! And totally accurate to the actual story, from what I read.

Has anyone seen the film DUCK?

Currently watching a new BBC miniseries (3 hrs) of Sense and Sensibility. I know Andrew Davies is well thought of at the Beeb but cannibalising whole chunks of script from someone else's adaptation  is seriously bad form.
And I feel bad for the kid who plays Little Henry. Apparently his part consists of looking fat and unpleasant, and eating. I hope they gave him some lines, even if they did end up on the cutting-room floor.

Wrecked (2010)
I really wanted to like this, but really..didn't. I didn't dislike it because it's slow and mostly uneventful (which it is), but there was just nothing beyond that. I get what they were trying to do, but fell short for me. A lot of it also didn't make sense (why didn't he keep trying to get out? why didn't he try to walk??). Ending does not redeem. 2/5

AC, where do these random movie recommendations come from? You always rate movies 2 and 3 stars. If I watched that many bad movies, I don't think I'd like watching any movies!

haha! I'm hard on my ratings. 4 has to be pretty awesome, and 5 is like lovelove. I don't go by Netflix recommended ratings, because they are often not right..so I just choose based on what I'm in the mood for. I like watching different movies, so I'm ok with not loveloving everyone! P will pretty much only watch horror, and not many horror movies are 4 or 5. 3 is like ..that was enjoyable.

Netflix is usually spot-on with the recommendations for me. Maybe if you took a better RATING SYSTEM, netflix could give you better suggestions :P

I don't want them!! I have to rate for 2 people, though..so it looks pretty crazy.

SILLY!  Netflix recommended for me the movie Wall-E ... because I enjoyed the movie District 9.  It also recommended Barney & Friends because I enjoyed Fraggle Rock.  I did not watch either recommendation.  Should I have?  Based on my preferences?

No doubt, perfect matches.

Netflix really only ever recommends documentaries or British crime tv shows to me.... neither do I ever watch.

With the new system, what netflix "recommends" is crap. You have to look at the estimated star rating. Those are almost always spot on for me.

I agree. I didn't find it funny at all, just annoying.

I seem to like most British movies...

Wild Target
Pretty cutesy, but still unique and entertaining. Good acting, funny moments. 4/5

Hotel Splendide
Loved it! Dark, gross, and pretty twisted, but so different! I thought it was funny and mesmerizing. Unique story. Great all around. 5/5

Bunny and the Bull
Also liked this quite a bit. It wasn't what I was expecting at all, and is extremely creative. Pretty dark, but humorous. Interesting story. 4.5/5 (more 5 than 4)

Winnebago Man
I guess I missed out on this whole video deal. I didn't know of angry rv guy, so this was a bit lost on me. Kinda interesting story, but very amateur documentary, and meh. 3/5

I watched the old classic Leave Her to Heaven a few nights ago.  Good, but not great

The Housemaid: Pretty good. There were moments of greatness in this film but I believe a couple scenes could have been cut out. 3.75/5

Midnight Cowboy: Loved this. Hated Dustin Hoffman's character in this, though. 4.5/5

Nights of Cabiria: One of Fellini's more watchable films. Really liked this one in all its simplicity. 5/5

Slaughter High: Typical 80's revenge slasher. Some cool kills but not as bloody as I like. Still good, though. 3/5

Friday the 13th (original): This is awesome. And how sexy is a young Kevin Bacon?! 5/5
