Movie: Red Sparrow
« on: March 03, 2018, 08:17:06 AM »
I went and saw this movie last night - pretty good actually.

Jennifer Lawrence is an absolute babe!  "Dominika" reminded me a bit of Manny's lovely wife!   tiphat

The story was compelling and interesting.

The cinematography of the scenes in Moscow was really good and I'd actually been to several of the places that were filmed in Moscow - especially the Bolshoi. 

Give it a look when it opens in your area.  You'll be entertained.

It's getting crap reviews, Shakey - other than if you want to see J-Law scantily clad

Naw... she looks NOTHING like Mrs Manny

Considering the movies the "critics" are nominating for academy awards, I justifiably don't put much trust in reviews.

It certainly was a suspense thriller and people with an interest in Russia would absolutely find it entertaining.

Well they both have blonde hair and are attractive females - that's something isn't it?

If you liked the movie then you’ll probably like the book even more. I read it about two years ago. Will probably see the movie later today. 🍿

Poor robot. A critic tells him what movie to watch and the BBC tells him how to think and vote.  :chuckle:

Bad accents, preposterous story line. We watched McMafia as well, neither of us liked that, was well rank.

The only thing I hate about story lines, is if supposedly intelligent characters make *Exceptionally stupid* decisions in the script.

For instance take the sci-fi alien flick "Prometheus".

- The cartographer gets lost inside the alien space-ship (LOL)
- The biologist sees a bunch of large dead aliens whom died in agony. Meets a little critter thats alive.... "HOW Cute!" ... my first instinct would be "RUN FOR YOUR LIVES"
- Same biologist feels sick, has unprotected sex with her boyfriend anyway (LOL)
- etc.

I turned it off halfway through because I was so tired with those stupid decisions.

And here is the Feminist view from a UK tabloid -

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-5459183/LIZ-JONES-Real-feminists-not-star-crass-porn-flicks-J-Law.html

Nauseating...

Watched it last night on the ferry - HD-CAM rip - piss poor rip, piss poor film. Review pretty accurate. It's no secret that Jennifer and I are in a long distance relationship - I long for her from a distance.....

Things were going well between us before the exclusion order too.....

She gave me her phone number, only when I tried to dial it back home I realised '4' was maybe not a real mobile number. Not long enough, some digits missing I suspect. That's her way of playing hard to get.

This pretty much explains why you need to watch/do something yourself, to form an opinion.

I’ve got McMafia on the planner, yet to watch. Everyone I spoke to raves about it.

When you catch her will it be 51 Shades of Grey?  :chuckle:
