I am currently watching.....

edited March 2015 in Chit chat
This stems from a rant Mel did months ago on the currently listening to thread, and he suggested starting a thread like this to somebody (sorry can't be exact since the currently listening to thread is about 300,000,000 pages long now).

I'm really surprised nobody actually did, so here goes.

I thought about starting a thread like this a long time ago, but didn't, and now the key inspiration was whilst trying to find the on-demand movie channel on the cable here, I stumbled across some obscure channel playing "Army of Darkness", I haven't seen it for years so I thought why not?

Anyway I was originally just going to post up saying "Haha, I've just watched Army of Darkness yadda yadda" once I'd finished watching it. But here's the clincher, the US version has a different ending.

    Don`t look for the VHS in your Wardrobe, otherwise you might end up in Narnia and that would be another story.

    I watched Lock Stock a few nights ago and was going to watch Snatch last niht but ended up watching Beyond Reanimator on Zone Horror instead.

    Nowhere near as good as the first 2, but it was funny in one or two places. Thankfully House of Reanimator hasn't had financial backing.

    Maybe I'll watch Snatch tonight.
    Oh, no. Every time you turn up something monumental and terrible happens.

    I would've watched the last Resi movie if I could figure out how to get the free movies up on the on demand channel? I was looking through them yesterday afternoon, but when I tried to get em' up this morning I got a list of completely different newish movies like Drillbit Taylor, Beowulf, and things like that that all cost $3.99?

    Bizarre, unless they don't let you watch them on off peak hours? maybe they assume the only people awake at that time of night are the ones who'll pay to see comedies and action movies, and the huge selection of porn they have on offer?

    Not the peeps who work 3rds and happen to not want to screw up what little sleeping pattern they have left :D

    Regarding Army Of Darkness, the UK ending is the proper ending. If you get the directors cut in the US, that's the ending you'll get. However, just like the typical US test audiences, they didn't like the grim ending, and so the happy present day ending was filmed for them.

    To be honest, they're both great endings, typical Ash style, but that's the answer to your question.

    Just finished watching one of the crappiest movies ever and ever in the history of forever-ever!

    SciFi was showing Leprechaun 4: In Space and what a load of rotten eggs that is. The only reason why I became slightly interested in it was because of the guy who played Dr. Mittenhand ... I scratched my head trying to figure out where I remembered the guy from ... it was none other than Guy Siner of 'Allo, 'allo fame. I haven't seen him in anything since he was Lt. Gruber, aside from hearing him doing voiceovers in games and cartoons.

    I checked his site out and saw that the 'Allo, 'allo series had been sold to a German TV channel ... don't know whether to understand that as they now have rights to show it or if they are allowed to make new series ... I'd watch it :-P

    Since yesterday afternoon I've watched "We own the Night", "Gone Baby Gone", and Resident Evil: Extinction.

    All were quite good.

    My mate has the special edition, and it has both endings on it. I think that the American ending is much better.

    The last hour or so I've been watching that bastard fire-orb out there meandering its way upwards like a drunken scallywag ... what has happened to all the proper sunrises? Local warming, bah, humbug!

    I watched two episodes of the X-Files this morning - Aubrey and Irresistable from Season 2.

    In Irresistable yet again Scully got nabbed by the bad guy and Mulder saved her in the end.

    Still, that's another 2 episodes down, only 170ish to go!! :-o

    Working my way through the box set - all 9 seasons and the film. Then it'll be onto Millennium box set, thankfully there were only 3 seasons of that.

    Watched The Cabinet of Dr Caligari today. It's got really weird set design (that I've seen described as sort-of proto-Tim Burtonesque) and a good twist ending that I didn't see coming.

    Almost.

    It's the 'theatrical' ending, in that it was also used for the cinema release over here, and when it was shown on Sky Movies. It was replaced with the 'proper' ending when Army Of Darkness was first released on VHS (in the UK anyway) but subsequent re-releases have included the 'theatrical' ending after the credits.

    The UK and US cuts of the movie were also different, the UK version was slightly longer, had some different dialogue and extra scenes (most significantly during the battle at the end), although strangely they appear in a slightly different order to how they are in The Director's Cut.

    The Director's Cut is more or less the same as the UK version, dialogue and all, with 1 or 2 more scenes added, and the order of them rejigged a bit. And the originally filmed 'apocalypse' ending.

    I'm not an Evil Dead nerd or anything.....:wink:

    recent DVD's i have seen from the DVD shop.

    Deja Vu - quite a good film with an interesting concept. ties up nicely at the end, but looking on wikipedia there are loads of big mistakes. staring denzel washington, val kilmer and a good turn by jim cavizel. you get a glimps of some tits in a shower, and some underwear scenes.

    This is england - great movie by shane meadows, set in 1983 it tells a story of a young boy drawn into the world of skin heads. its good cos it shows both kinds of skins, the old school types and the evil NF ones. its got that guy from 'snatch' in it (tommy). no sex to speak of.

    the tailor of panama - thought this was a new film, but it wasn't, sigh. really stupid film based on john leCaree book. stupid plot, crap acting. i loved 'the spy who came in from the cold' but this was just garbage, like a bad carry on film. brendan gleeson (28 days later) does the worst s. american accent ever. a good turn by harold pinter. you see jamie lee curtis's tits twice, once in bed while she is laying down, and the left one pops out later on. and one character is watching some hardcore sex scenes.

    I've been wanting to see that, I'm gonna check the family video here for it. Funny thing is they put british movies in with the art/foreign/local community films.

    Makes me laugh, they didn't put layer cake or snatch in the indy section :D

    british movies in america are foreign movies you clown. :lol:

    didn't they subtitle 'trainspotting' or something? i know there was that scene where they put them in for a joke, but i thought they did it with the whole thing. (before the option on DVDs)
