Yeah I've watched it and yeah it gets really uncomfortable at times, I can see why they cut out those scenes.
I was about 12 when I saw the UK version. I thought it was great, and I probably fancied Portman.

I've rewatched the UK and the French versions as an adult. Both shocked me a bit, but the French one is really creepy imo.

The movie is also better without those scenes.

I also agree with the above posters that Oldman is too cartoony.

Single White Female

Thriller about a woman's new flatmate turning out to be a headcase, pretty dull film to be honest and the two stars Bridget Fonda and Jennifer Jason Leigh who I think are talented actresses are wasted on this film.

Expendables 2

Like the first one, stupid but fun and you can't help but feel nostalgic as Chuck Norris plays a one man army, Arnie guns down baddies with the biggest and loudest gun while spouting one liners and JCVD doing his high kicks, only thing missing is him doing the splits.

Mickybo and Me

Drama comedy set in Northern Ireland during The Troubles about two young lads from opposite sides of the religious divide. The film has hints of grit and humour and shows a decent depiction of life during those times. The two boys form a friendship from seeing the classic Western Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid and live their own little adventure based off that. The adult cast includes Julie Walters, Cirian Hinds, Adrian Dumbar and Gina McKee, but its the two youngsters that really shine and carry the movie. For the most part it is very enjoyable and a nice journey, unfortunately it has one of the worst endings I can remember seeing in a movie that deflates the entire film and feels completely naff. A nice cameo from former heavy weight boxer Martin Rogan was a surprise.

5/10 Deserved a better score til the ending sunk the film to Titanic depths.

Turned the Fellowship of the Ring late last night as I've had an urge to watch them again. Was thinking it seemed different and it turns out that I was watching the extended edition which I've never seen. Anyway got just over an hour into it and switched it off. Watching a film well over 3 hours long at 2 in the morning isn't a good idea.

Will definitely revisit it again at some point.

I remember having the extended additions of those films. I can't remember the differences any more or how much I enjoyed them more than the standard cut.

Those extended versions actually add some really good material and context to certain scenes. I can't exactly remember the details, but I do remember some scenes explained a helluva lot. There's a scene where Galadriel? gives the fellowship each some kind of item that they use during the movies. Really surprised that was left out.

From what I've seen so far it's just extra scenes explaining the lives of Hobbits and more Bilbo Baggins. I read earlier that Peter Jackson actually prefers the theatrical cuts.

I loved the first lotr film. Not as keen on the others.

Hobbitt was OK. Couldn't watch the others though. Gave up part way through both.

Gone with the Wind

Well I've finally got round to watching it so my thoughts, first off yes it does glamourise the confederacy and slavery but that isn't the biggest fault of the film, no the films biggest fault is that we spend almost 4 hours following a sociopathic witch trying to steal another womans husband and along the way she hits slaves, murders a soldier, works a horse to it's death and manipulates pretty much every character in the film and brings them nothing but grief, a truly hateful character.

On the plus side, there are some good performances with Hattie McDaniel stealing the show and on top of that, it's incredibly well shot, in fact it looks stunning for an 80 year old film, the scenery, the period dress etc.

Doubt I'll ever watch it again though.

Jurassic World

Essentially a remake of the original Jurassic Park set in a new dinosaur theme park built over the old site, the park is thrown into chaos when a newly created monster escapes it's holding pen.

Entertaining enough but not even a patch on the original Jurassic Park, probably dumber than JP III.

Metropolis

Dystopian science fiction from the silent era, a must watch for any film fan.
There's several different versions available, the one you want is the Masters of Cinema 2 and a half hour version.

I just recently watched the restored/extended version for the first time.

No question the visuals are spectacular and it's easy to see why it's such a ground-breaking film. But I felt the story meandered about too much and too long, characters' actions sometimes didn't seem to make sense, and some of the imagery just got ridiculous by the end (like the woman trying to work the giant alarm bell during the flood scene). Ultimately, I'd say it's one of those films whose acclaim stems more from its innovation rather than its inherent quality.

Yeah, go back to the talkies if silent movies are too much for ya, fool!
