Brooklyn: the story of a young Irish woman, from Wexford who migrates to New York in the 1950's, and later visits her mother in Ireland.

http://www.cineman.ch/movie/2015/Brooklyn/

I saw it in Bern this Sunday in English. It's a film for ladies, and definitely worth more than the 3 out of 5 marks that Cine-man give it!
Worst.Wexford.Accent.Ever. Slightly worse than even Tom Cruise's effort in Far and Away.

Very, very sorry about that! Why couldn't they use citizens of Wexford?

Colin Firth back from the dead for Kingsman 2

I quite enjoyed the first one. Mark Strong also returns for the second movie.

Re: Movie recommendations

I saw All Good Things recently - it was good. I had seen the documentary on Robert Durst last Winter so knew the story of his wife's murder/disappearance in '82.

Robert Durst is one creepy person

Re: Movie recommendations

Saw two sci-fi movies last week: Signal and Europa Report. Neither movie received a rave or brilliant review, however, I really enjoyed them -- different, slow burners, atmospheric thrillers with stories that pulled me in.

Well worth a watch for sci-fi fans.

Re: Movie recommendations

I'm a bit slow on 2016 movies, but just watched Deadpool and Zootopia.


Absolutely loved Deadpool. Extremely funny (for those who enjoy deep potty humour), excellent action, and overall a fresh change in movie style for superhero/blockbuster movies. The story was maybe a bit weak, but totally ignorable from the great dialogue and characters.


Zootopia: Was a bit disappointed. Animation, action and 3D were great! The story was fun, but typical buddy-cop plot. I felt the 'symbolic' message was a bit simple and lame. But excellent movie for kids!

Re: Movie recommendations

"Mother's Day" is released this year, with good reviews,

German Switzerland: 25. August 2016

Romandie: 25. May 2016

Ticino: 23. June 2016

I saw it last night at our open air cinema in English, it was very pleasantly amusing and at times funny.

Made more for the ladies than for single men.... (No shooting, & no breasts shown)

Re: Movie recommendations?

The Green Room... OMG.

Makes Dead Mans Shoes and Eden Lake look like kids movies.

If you haven't seen all three of these then you have to (especially Dead Mans Shoes), but be warned they are not for the squeamish.

Re: Movie recommendations

I saw a few films recently that I liked, Sing Street was the best!
Promised Land was pretty good, too. Both movies very real and quite thoughtful.

Then I saw a film called Hysteria, a bit of an unusual pro-women and sexlib campaign but pretty hilarious.

how about "Into the Wild".
it is a movie about a boy hitchhikes to Alaska to live in the wilderness.It did impress me.

The other one I recently watched and really liked was a classic movie called:
One flew over the cuckoo's nest.

If you like classic movies try Twelve Angry Men; Arsenic and Old Lace; Bringing Up Baby and The Odd Couple.

I think I dislike Into the Wild on principle, to go and get killed by the elements in wild nature is not heroic for me. I know it is a book, etc. etc. and a sort of cult movie here. I understand the popularity.

'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' is however an amazing movie I saw as a teen, and an equally great novel.

You might like 'Spectacular Now', it is not as shocking but still pleasantly young. 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape'. 'Chasing Amy'. 'Pieces of April'. 'The Straight Story'. That one is pleasantly old. That's heroic.

It's completely brilliant. Glad you enjoyed it.


Have you seen Grabbers (Richard Coyle, Russell Tovey) a little-seen "sci fi" (just) movie set in Ireland? In a nutshell, disgusterous alien beasties invade a hapless town and attack the inhabitants who then discover that the aliens are allergic to alcohol. Cue some of the funniest "fights" ever. Joyous. And very, very messy.
Grabbers was on TV last Saturday ( well in the week small hours) on the channel that seems to be RTS un. It's viewable in English on Swisscom ( channel 300?).

Re: Movie recommendations

Saw some really good movies lately. Getting away from Hollywood's dreary output, watched the excellent south Korean historic war movie: The Admiral: Roaring Currents.

Also watched the very well made and exciting Rurouni Kenshin Japanese movies - really loved all 3 movies.

The Suspect: a South Korean spy action/thriller - very enjoyable.

Re: Movie recommendations

Goes to show that TV is far superior to most movies going by the activity on EF threads.

Saw Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin in Sicario a while back, and thought it was excellent.

The name’s Elba, Idris Elba – and he must be James Bond

Daniel Craig has confirmed he is out: no more James Bond.

The role is now up for grabs. If the wonderful actor and very cool Mr. Elba doesn't take/get the job, I'll not be happy
Daniel Craig confirmed to do one more James Bond - hooray!

Mr. Hiddleston is ruled out to play any future Bonds; too smug and not tough enough
