... and you would like to say sth about them.
Have you seen sth you want to recommend? Or maybe warn people: what a waste of time! Something new or old? Some classic or cult movie and you enjoyed it, or maybe all the time you're thinking: why they said it is soooo good or cult? Or maybe noone liked some movie, but you enjoyed it.

And new thread, cause I've watched few movies lately and they don't fit to any thread here :confused: no coolest, no favourites, no the worst etc....

Vanishing Point (1971)

What about:
"Kowalski, the hero of the story, works for a car delivery service. He takes delivery of a supercharged 1970 Dodge Challenger to take from Colorado to Frisco, California. Shortly after pickup, he takes a bet to get the car there in less than 15 hours. After a few run-ins with motorcycle cops and highway patrol they start a chase to bring him into custody. Along the way, Kowalski is guided by Supersoul - a blind DJ with a police radio scanner. Throw in lots of chase scenes, gay hitchhikers, a naked woman riding a motorbike, lots of Mopar and you've got a great cult hit from the early 70's"

I've watched it yesterday and I still have no idea why it's said as great, cult, about freedom etc. I was really bored watching it, but I stayed till the end.

Movie based on such Polish literature? You couldn't choose worse ;)

Not surprisingly my parents wanted to see it, moreover they wanted us to see it :rolleyes: But what the hell, it's not like I look down on everything I don't necessarily dig. I read the book for school so I knew what I was going in for. But unlike people I didn't think the movie was any good so that's that. Obviously I didn't think it had that much potential to being with but dazzle us won't you. For the cast of the best actors in Poland (or so it was said, I wouldn't know), it was a bore.

Olala..
That must have been really bad movie :D

But: out of curiousity: where did I say anything of that you've referred to? :undecide:
You read this book? So did I and that's why I didn't go to watch it, cause I knew that it couldn't be any better.

The thread topic reminds me, I did see Jerry Maguire a few weeks ago. A bit surprised to find out it was good, I had expected less. Lots of energy in there :cool:
