I read this book and The Outsiders by SE Hinton when I was at high school. I liked the book version of this better, but The Outsiders is the far better movie. To me the biggest weakness of this movie is moving it from mid-1960s Oklahoma to mid-1980s Minnesota. A lot of the things which would have outraged people 20 years earlier weren't near as big a deal in the 80s. Still, not a bad movie by any stretch. Charlie might have been the more successful of the Sheen/Estevez boys, but Emilio is a far better actor.

Literally one of the worst movies I've ever seen, tbh. It had a ton of problems, but one of the biggest issues for me was the acting was spectacularly awful across the board. Eddie Redmayne especially won an Oscar for another movie, apparently, but based solely on this film I'd say he's not deserving of one, because his performance in this is one of the absolute worst, most over the tip, cringe-worthy performances I've ever seen, LOL Also doesn't help that the story had many ways in which it could have been interesting, but instead decides to be super generic, and also ends up kinda feeling rushed. I honestly can't remember liking a single thing about it, lol

Liking these newer Bonds a lot. Loved the opening sequence, the remote controlled car chase, and Michelle Yeoh's kick-ass Chinese agent.

Yeah it is quite terrible and specifically aimed at a teenage audience who will swallow anything the two main actors star in.

I watched Limitless, From Hell, and Hansel & Gretel: Witchunters in the last couple of days. I liked Limitless...the other two were decent and entertaining, but didnĀ“t exactly make my blood boil.

I was thinking that it's hard to believe that the Wachowski's who gave us The Matrix also gave us this, but I remembered they also gave us The Matrix sequels. Wink

Speaking of which: The Matrix 4. Anyone actually interested after all these years?

Not really no LOL. I liked the first Matrix movie, but it went downhill from there...

I think a lot of it would go over the average teen's head.

I remember having a very specific problem with that movie.

I can't remember what it actually was now though.

My missus is a commercial cleaner, so I know there's one thing they got right, which movies and TV often don't - Mila Kunis was wearing gloves while she was cleaning the toilet.LOL

Pirate movie from the 1950s. An underused setting for movies IMO. This one was decent, but we need more modern pirate movies (which are realistic, unlike Pirates of the Caribbean). Black Sails was a good TV show, but come on Hollywood.

Okay, this is the third Wes Anderson film I've seen and the third that's been bloody brilliant. I'm going to have to pay more attention to this director.

Yeah, it's brilliant this one. Have you seen The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou? I would recommend it if you liked this.

No not yet. The other two I've seen are The Grand Budapest Hotel and Isle of Dogs. I have The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou lined up on Disney+ to watch. They have quite a few Andersons on there.

He was almost always brilliant...so sad about his mental issues and subsequent suicide. An absolutely brilliant actor...

Honestly seems quite bizarre after the Connery and Lazenby run. I didn't really rate it too much. The death of the main villain was bloody ridiculous too.
