I really enjoy a good revenge film. What are your favourites, any recommendations?
I just saw dead mans shoes this week, it was amazing.
Law abiding citizen is a good one too. Gerard Butler is in it which helps.
Kill Bill 1&2 also awesome.

Can't think of many other than Kill Bill and Inglourious Basterds, also by Tarantino.

Ooh is inglorious a revenge film? Excellent. I'll give that a watch then.
Another good one....Harry Brown!

Law abiding citizen is probably the best, girl with dragon tattoo is v good too.

Highly recommend the Korean films Sympathy for Lady Vengeance and Old Boy.

Pacific Heights. Michael Keaton is so evil in it

Cape Fear?

Oh mabel old boy was sooooo good. So tragic, very clever film indeed.

I'm with MableSideswipe - Sympathy for Lady Vengeance and Oldboy are great films.

French films 36, the page turner and love crime. French must like a bit of revenge smile

Im also a vote for inglorious basterds. Recorded it of tv last night, now just need 3 hours to myself to watch it. (DH is not a Tarantino fan!)

The Last Seduction.

Prob not quite as sophisticated as those mentioned but I like Long Kiss Goodnight

gaggiagirl Wed 13-May-15 15:58:44

niq who is in that? I want to say Morgan freeman.

The Page Turner wasn't really a revenge film, and it was bloody awful! Point Blank by John Boorman starring Lee Marvin and Angie Dickenson is the best by a mile!

mumteedum Wed 13-May-15 20:32:38

Sourdrawers...are we on about same film? It's pyscological thriller rather than a bloody (in literal sense) revenge film I grant you, but would def say it's about revenge.

mumteedum Wed 13-May-15 20:34:06

It's quite slow but I like arty farty films wink

gaggiagirl Thu 14-May-15 22:02:54

Ooh inglorious has just started on more four! Law abiding citizen is on later too!

sourdrawers Sat 16-May-15 09:48:13

mumteedum You could be right there.. I don't remember there being a revenge theme in it but my memory is awful.. . I really didn't like it. Did you?

mumteedum Sat 16-May-15 19:15:09

Yeah I loved it but I like a bit of french drama. I find them refreshingingly amoral grin

I don't remember all details but she stumbles as a child in her piano exam cos she's distracted by the famous pianist /examiner signing an autograph. She then becomes her page turner few years later and subtly sabotages the other woman's life. Sort of creeping menace type revenge.

Might go see if it's on Netflix actually...

Django Unchained would get a big thumbs up from me.

sourdrawers Sun 17-May-15 11:22:34

Yees Django was fantastic. Oh and 'Get Carter'.

RE: Page Turner, yes that's right, I remember now. Trouble was, it had no character development, she was the same at the end as at the beginning. Didn't see the point in it. The director made a film called The Child, which was much better I thought. No revenge though.

mumteedum Sun 17-May-15 19:18:09

Get carter.. Yes! Can't miss that out. Love the soundtrack too.

You're probably right about lacking character development but I didn't notice really. All arty farty moody frenchness...Like bit of that now and again wink

Dead Mans Shoes. I love revenge films and this is my favourite. I've lent this DVD to a lot of people and they have all said they loved it and had to watch it twice.
Old boy is also good.

mumteedum Mon 18-May-15 15:55:02

The stunts my ex is pulling just now I'd best not watch any of these cos it'll puts thoughts in my head! hmm
