You're right, I should have left the cinema, but I've never actually walked out on a film yet. John Wick was very close. The other films that were so close were The Edukators and Big Momma's House. I wonder what the film that actually breaks me will be like. 

See how long you can make it through The Ridiculous 6.

That was my Vietnam.

Some older choices but all on the BBC iPlayer at the moment so......

Drive - very slick, well acted and yet hilariously predictable. 8/10

The Devil's Double - superb, really enjoyed it. Stunning lead performance. 10/10

The Rack Pack - a TV movie certainly but a well acted and directed one. 9/10.

Your right all three of them are well worth a watch.

I watched the Rack Pack on Sunday and my wife can't stand snooker but she thought it was great. Like you said really well acted and it was really funny in parts.

I loved The Devil's Double too! Should have been a bigger hit than it was IMO. Although the very end of the movie - the bit with the escape - doesn't make very much sense. 

Cooper should be a much bigger actor than he is IMO, unfortunately for him he's been in some proper shit blockbusters, hopefully Warcraft will buck that trend but I doubt it

Bourne > Bond

 

Come at me bro'

Overall, you're right.

But Casino Royale was better than any of the Bourne films, imo. Although you could argue it was good because it took a page out of Bourne's book.

Since then I think Bond has regressed back to why I grew to dislike it. Gimmicky films more about gadgets and women than any real story or action. I still like them, but they're nothing special

Only ever walked out on one film at the cinema in my life. Pain & Gain. **** awful. Fetid faecal slop of a film.

 

Spiderman 3 for me. Well I didn't actually walk out, but I tried to. My uni housemates forced me to stay.

 

(I actually loved Pain and Gain :D )

Bill and Ted is actually decent and I quite enjoyed Constantine . He really ain't as bad as people say.

IMO he really is. I've nothing against the guy and the films he's in are often good despite him not because of him. But watching him act can be painful. He's a terrible actor :)

People are mistaking his performances with the quality of the films he's in. He's like the anti-Denzel, where Washington is often the best thing in a very mediocre overall film.

I've never walked out of a film , usually cause I'm armed with a huge bucket of popcorn in the same way that you give a monkey a banana to distract it whilst you stick a vaccination needle in it's arm  ... I even stayed up til 2 am the other day watching some dreadful Steven Segal film as I happened to catch the first 5 minutes and then wanted to see how it ended (predictably , being the answer !!)

2 people walked out of Hateful 8 when I watched it last week , but they were OAP's and had probably thought they were going to Bingo or something
