Title: Latest Movie You Watched
Post by: Geemonster on November 02, 2009, 09:33:49 PM
Moon (2009)
Very good Sci - Fi about energy renewal using resources on the moon.
  The AI Computer voiced by Kevin Spacey,starring Sam Rockwell.
Unusual twist,not what i thought it was going to be. 10/10

Been looking forward to seeing Moon, actually.

I recently watched World's Greatest Dad starring Robin Williams and written and directed by Bobcat Goldthwait which is funny in places and bent-up in other places (with Bobcat involved why am I not surprised?).

Robin Williams is an aspiring (but terminally rejected) writer and a school teacher whose wife recently passed away.

His bottom son also attends the school where he teaches. Everyone at the school hates him, with good reason. The kid is an out-and-out foul-mouthed, totally disinterested, deviant, spending most of his time looking at porn on the internet or talking about porn on the internet. He even engages in auto-erotic asphyxiation!

It's not a great movie, but it's not terrible either. It is a very dark comedy tho'...

We did a write up on this movie a couple of months ago Jack, dont know if you had a chance to read it or not? I thought it was a VERY good movie. And Bobcat shown through with flying colors. I think the majority agreed with your evaluation though.

Just watched a clip. The only thing I can speculate on is if the ending is as obvious as it appears then I dont want to see it. PLEASE, everyone else watch it and then post whether my guess is true to form. If not, then Im there!!!

No, I didn't see the earlier write-up, sorry...  :-[

And my evaluation was that I liked it for the most part, but it was really bent-up in places.

Is that what everyone else thought?

That sounds interesting Jack,might have to check it out.

Hope you like dark comedy!  :D

Oh yeah,,
The remake wasnt that great though.
If you like Rutger Hauer,, youd like him in Blind Fury from back in 1987

Given the movies she cited (Jacob's Ladder, Sixth Sense) I think she's assuming that the upshot of the flick is that the main character is dead or has been dying for he entire film and that that is only revealed at the end.

Signs was good too.
The Village was,, well, I cant describe what I thought of that movie. Lady in The Water ,hmmmm,,,what can I say that hasnt allready been said about that piece of s**t.
And the last one he did,,too damn predictable that relyed too muchon shocking images. The entire story could have been done in ten minutes.

Gone With the Wind
Sat through this epic because we're studying A Streetcar Named Desire in school. ASND kind of ruined GWTW for me because I kept seeing Blanche DuBois in Scarlett O'Hara. But I really liked GWTW anyway. The technicolour is glorious, and Vivien Leigh is beyond gorgeous. This movie slayed me.

Post by: xtopave on November 06, 2009, 09:59:55 AM
Frankly my dear ( ;)) the consequential question is: Which heroine did you like best?
Title: Re: Latest Movie You Watched
Post by: JackFrost on November 06, 2009, 10:27:11 AM
It's funny how in all of this talk about M. Night Shamalamadingdong no one mentioned Unbreakable. It's not a horrible flick like Signs or Lady in the Water, but it did rub me the wrong way. Ultimately because of Sam Jackson's character - throughout the movie he espouses some great truths about comics - especially that hieroglyphs being pictures as words constitute some of the first comics ever made.

But then he turns out to be a crazy person so all of what he says is completely undermined by his villainy.  ::)

Anyway, I just watched Zombieland last night (got a link to a DVD-quality avi if anyone's interested).

A decent little zombie flick even if it did have some annoying aspects to what some of the characters did in the film. It's not a traditional zombie flick since the zombies run and can be dispatched by shots that don't include the head (which bugged me a lot near the end).

Also, there's the sequence they show in the trailer of Woody Harrelson killing zombies in a supermarket, and he keeps throwing his weapons aside. For instance, he bashes a couple with an aluminum baseball bat and throws the bat away! Uh, maybe you should keep that since it doesn't run out of ammo!

Speaking of which, there are plenty of places where they waste ammo, too. Grrrr...

And the main character has a list of rules about how to survive Zombieland, and some of them are great, but he tends to sabotage himself at the same time. For instance one of the rules is "Always Know Your Exit" and when explaining the rule the character checks to see that an EXIT door leads outside, and then props it open with a box. Uh, good one genius, now stuff can get in... ::)

But overall it's pretty fun and Harrelson is hilarious, and you'd never believe the things he'd do just to get his hands on a Twinkie...  :D

I finally watched Adventureland. It wasn't bad, it wasn't great... therefore it was just sort of ..blah. It had a couple of funny lines. And a couple of vague moments I connected with emotionally. But, the characters and plot were too easily anticipated. Nothing was overly mundane. Put it never picked up speed either.

Blanche DuBois vs Scarlett O'Hara??
I found Blanche DuBois so annoying in ASND though, which is why it was a great performance. She is just so bless'ed unbearable. Scarlett is far less annoying, but she was a heartless madam. I don't know :-\
Scarlett later in life = Blanche DuBois.

I hadn't caught that. I thought x meant scarlett vs melanie? I agree with your assessment if it's her against BD. There are parts of Scarlett that are bearable. And you can almost see times when she'll push through and turn out ok.

I never cared for Gone With The Wind.

That kinda killed it for me.
I cant even stand The Hobbit anymore becuse of that.

As much as I think Civil War history is interesting to read about, I'm pretty sure I've never read Gone With the Wind all the way through. But.. To Kill a Mockingbird and the Hobbit were my two favorite junior high books. And I love them both still :P

Hmm Scarlett vs Melanie... Melanie of course, she was so nice. But then that's probably the reason she was only a supporting character, being entirely good is so boring.

Post by: Skadi on November 08, 2009, 06:44:54 AM
I liked how Melanie was truly just flat out good though. She wasn't good to prvoe or gain something.. she just was 'good'. Even to the point of the times she reached out to Scarlett. I thought the scenes where she and Rhett and Scarlettt interacted were really interesting for those reasons. Rhett was a bad boy, but had a good heart. Melanie was 'good', but she was soooo good that she'd accept people unconditionally, people like Scarlett that other girls disssed, and Melanie would roll her sleeves up and get dirty. That's a nice unique and pure kind of good. And. they both thought Scarlett had it somewhere in herself that they could both reach her, and if anyone could, they both had the spirit to try.. but Scarlett was just too closed off and stubborn to relent. When I was little I always wanted Rhett and Melanie to go f'it, and run off together :D

Vivien Leigh won two Oscars, for two roles, which are almost exactly the same. It's uncanny. Or maybe she's just good at portraying stubborn southern belles :D

I also watched 2 films loosely based on a true story 1 Essex Boys 7/10 2 Rise of The Footsoldier 8/10
  It was only on further study i realised i'd seen one of the blokes on a couple of occasions,as i lived in various parts of Essex for years,not to mention i'd lived in London a couple of times.
  Anyone from the UK will remember the triple murders in a village called Rettendon in Chelmsford Essex,in which 3 men were blasted to death while sitting in a Range Rover,in December 1995.

I doubt that there will be much in the way of awards for this movie like Ive read predicted but she was wonderful. Kind of a chick flick I guess but good none the less.  6/10

I watched it twice when it was in the cinemas.  The second time sucked because the screening room was full of people and they made eating noises as well as coming in late and whispering loudly.

I watched Enid the other day.  It had Helena Bonham Carter in it.  She's pretty.  How much of that film is true?  Did she really behave that way towards her children?  Wikipedia doesn't say!  And that old man was touching her breast! :o

I have eclectic tastes in movies.  ;D  I always find the good side. If the plot isn't good I praise the soundtrack or some actor performance.  ::)
It depends on my mood. Generally I favor thrillers. Lately gangsters movies (British, Italian, American) are my favorites.

Yeah,, her way or the highway.
If it isnt some fantasy family movie from disney or NCIS it sucks.
Wish she would remember that when goes to steal things.
 For a 39 year old she acts 4.
 As for eclectic tastes,, Im about like you.
I like alot of horror though,, even got Trailer Park Terror and liked it for its quirkyness.( is that even a word?)
 Ive bought movies just because the soundtrack moved me.
 Me and my son watched Heavy Metal and Heavy Metal 2000 the other night. I bought the original just for the soundtrack really.
 The story and the hidden elements in 2000 were what sold me on it.
To me they were both works of art in their own ways.
 I go through phases ( sp) though,, sometimes ill go to the shop and look exclusively for a nice foriegn or older film.
 I got Young Frankenstien just to honor the memory of Marty Feldman ( laughed myself insane too).
 At the moment im going through a thriller phase and just recently got Angels and Demons.
I watched it back to back with The Manchurian Candidate.
 In a wierd way they were ,,well, complementary to each other.

And Im behind you 100% on the Titanic verdict RG. I didnt think it was a bad movie I was just bored out of my mind!! Although if you follow the movie thread, there are 2 members that feel the exact opposite from us. Oh another case of good vs evil.....but which is which?!?!?!?!

It's always a matter of taste. I know people that would rather slam a finger (or other part of the anatomy) with a door than watching a sci fi movie. And Titanic was inflated because of the fortune it cost.

I like "hard Sci FI" based on reality and physics and thingies with alloys and compositions and stuff ( Trubute to Ash in Army Of Darkness lol).
But this crap based purely on fantasy is ,,kinda hard to bear. ( I was a Physics major in college for a while).
 The best scene in Tittanic for me was the ending credits,, Im not into " Chick Flix".
 Another waste of my time was Twilight and the new one ( I refuse to watch) Full Moon.
 Id rather shove a pencil in my ear all the way to the eraser than watch them. Id rather vivisect myself with a dull salad spoon even.
The pain would be less,, Opra calls that empowerment.lol

Unfreakin believable movie. I feel honored that I was given the chance to see it. How bizarre is that?  9/10 for me. Everyone needs to see this movie.

I thought Doug was really funny. And I cried in one part. And I thought the idea of the story was interesting how it pulled together some real life news lifted events and real life deeper issues. But other Pixar movies will probably stay my favorites too.

My favorite movie of the year is probably still Star Trek.. but there's a ton I haven't seen.. so, I might wait until I'm caught up to say for sure :P

You're kidding?

That's a shame if it got overblown for you so that it was a letdown when you saw it.

It ranks among my very favorite Pixar flicks...  ;D

There's something about The Big Lebowski - either you get it, or you just don't:

DUDE: This is quite a pad you got here, man.  Completely unspoiled.
TREEHORN: What's your drink, Dude?
DUDE: White Russian, thanks.  How's the smut business, Jackie?
TREEHORN: I wouldn't know, Dude.  I deal in publishing, entertainment, political advocacy, and--
DUDE: Oh, yeah? And which one's Logjammin'?

I saw Pandorum. And I got to say one thing about your review of it. You are spot on accurate!
 Its like they tried to make a Ridley Scott movie and failed miserably.
 It was a movie they should pay YOU to sit through.
I watched about 20 minutes of it and decided that it was lame. BUT,,,I allways triy to find the good points of every movie.
For one,, I liked the creatures,, or whatever they were,, no one ever really said.
 I think thats about all I liked,,no ,,wait,, I liked the girl that made it out at the end,, she was kinda cute.
 I think that was the only redeaming value the movie had. If you can call it that.

I think what really annoyed me is that there could be a competent sci-fi flick made from some of what was done in Pandorum, but no one made the effort.

I don't know if it's the writers or the audience that has become lazy. Are filmmakers not bothering to complete their visions because the audience doesn't seem to care either way?

Weve been force fed so much Hollywood pap that even the audiences dont expect very much anymore.
American cinima is pretty much dead for that.
 We the audience dont have a say anymore, its all like boy bands. Made for mass marketing and then thrown away.
Very few movies even have staying power, and if they do ( Star Wars, Lord Of The Rings,,,ugh!) its marketed to death.
 American audiences dont expect alot out of the lame duck studios here, so now they dont have to try hard.
 I talked to someone today that actualy LIKED Pandorum,, and was extoling its virtues.
I figure theyll do this till next week when a new movie comes out and then they will ,,like everyone else in America, forget this was ever made.

Seriously, the effects are amazing.

I took a chance and bought Drag Me To Hell after I got off work.
 Ok ,, got to say something ( a few things actualy) before I comment on this movie.
 I am a Sam Raimi fan.
 And Ive cought a little heat on here from a member about my taste in movies ( ok,, I LIKED V for Vendetta alot) and then cought some heat for movies I DIDNT like ( I thought Lord of the Rings blew chunks).
BUT,, I AM the guy that watches movies for different reasons than others.
I dislike movies that depend on special effects ( Independance Day, Day After Tommarow, 2012, etc).
 I like movies ( and books and music) that chalenge me.
 I like things that are provocative ( Check out Dead Girl,,thanks Cheapie!).
 The Evil Dead movies were perfect.
They were flawed, cheesy, and gore for the sake of gore. BUT,,, they challenged me.
 Drag Me To Hell was not a good experience when I saw it online. BUT I thought I would give it a chance.
No problem,, only 14 bucks. Soooooo,,,,I bought it and watched it this morning.
I liked it alot. Classic Raimi in the Evil Dead tradition.
 The effects werent over used, and the story was pretty fancifull,, which left me thinking about what was happening.
 It wasnt the " perfect" movie,, but it was really entertaining.
 The few shocking moments it had were ok,, one made me jump a little ( and im jaded).
 The fact that Gregg Nocotero did the effects just was great. I love his work ( he was trained by Tom Savini,, one of my heroes).
 I got to give the movie an overal 6/10 as far as the genre goes.

Yeah, if it hasn't enticed you enough to watch more than a few minutes at a time, it's never going to grab you. The story just gets worse as the film progresses.

Since I know you read comics, you should give the graphic novel a try. The story is infinitely better and, as I said, is nothing like the movie.

I bought The Return of the Living Dead recently and had forgot how good that was.

A lot of people don't know that it's based on a novel by John Russo (the other half of the creative team for Night of the Living Dead)... Hell, that movie's written by Dan O'Bannon (Alien) and has some pretty amazing special effects.

The gooey zombie that comes out of military canister and is trapped in the basement is fantastic.

And the quadruple amputee zombie that chases the mortician back inside still haunts me to this day...

And, of course, the scene where the line of cop cars gets attacked by hoards of zombies is classic...

And is there any love out there for Savini's 1990 remake of Night? I think it's better than the original myself...

I disagree. I was really looking forward to that remake, but found it more of a re-imagining. The character of Barbera was completely unrecognisable from the original. in the original she was almost catatonic with fear throughout, while in the remake, it seems like they've seen the success of the "Alien" series of films with a strong female lead and thought "lets put Ripley in this. We'll call her Barbera because we obviously can't use Ripley, but it's Ripley."  :D
Title: Re: Latest Movie You Watched
Post by: xtopave on December 08, 2009, 05:50:02 PM
It's because it was remade in the 90's. It would have been politically incorrect if the female character was a catatonic useless helpless woman.  ;) ;D ;D

I have both virsions.
The first was a social commentary ( as are most of Romeros Dead movies) on racism at the time.
 To me the first was creepier,, the second ( made by Tom Savini) was more of a fun zombie flick. ( im kinda an expert on zombie flicks,, sorry).
 The whole Night Of The Living Dead 3D was a waste of my time. Dont bother,, I wont talk about it or bore you with the details.
 Dawn was a good effort comenting on our consumerist lifestyle that has just gotten worse.
Day was talking about the Reaganistic philosophy of millitary might in the civilian world and Land was about the Bush/Cheney regime sweeping thier mess under a carpet hoping no one finds out.
Diary was about how the internet has made the world smaller and how the real news is online,, not on tv.
Survival Ive yet to see or hear much about.

I just watched A Scanner Darkley by Phillip K richard.
 The ending was great,, and twisty as hell as far as Im concerned.
Great movie about the proliferancy of drugs in a society, and the war on drugs punishing the inocent to get its point accross.
 Great movie.

Which annoyed me, to be honest. And yes, I saw the black and white version before the color. I wished someone would have snapped her out of her catatonia because they needed her help. And while the Ripley thing might be a stereotype, per se, I prefer to think that some ladies would step up similarly rather than be dead weight.  ;D

But I am often wrong...

( im kinda an expert on zombie flicks,, sorry).

I have seen several, but probably not nearly as many as you. I bow to your expertise.

Dawn was a good effort comenting on our consumerist lifestyle that has just gotten worse.

The original Dawn of the Dead is fantastic. While the acting is questionable and the special effects are so-so, the story is very, very good.

Day was talking about the Reaganistic philosophy of millitary might in the civilian world and Land was about the Bush/Cheney regime sweeping thier mess under a carpet hoping no one finds out.

See, now this sucks.  I've heard a few RL friends say 2012 wasn't bad but I trust you guys more for the fairest review.  Now to the "this sucks" part.  You know I'm gonna watch it, even when I believe you guys saying it's horrible.  It's John Cusack ffs, and I'm not ashamed to admit that he's my man-crush.  So I'm gonna see it...eventually.

John, I wish I could quit you.

It sucked brother,, it was one of those movies that sacrificed story for special effects

I just saw Saw 6. If it wasn't of RG, I would have never watched it. I must admit that I liked it. Even though the ending is predictable, the scenes are more hardcore and intense. It is my favourite Saw after 1st and 2nd ones.

I got 1-5 on dvd.
 I saw Life Force last night for the first time.
Damn I wish I hadnt waited all these years to see it!
Im usualy not a big fan of the Golan-Globus productions, since all they usualy do are the macho cowpoo kicking peoples asses movies.
But this one wasnt bad.
 The idea of an alien race being the origin of the vanpire legends was a bit over done by now,, but they were actualy kinda original about it.
 The special effects werent over the top, and the story was pretty good. The acting was ,,well, not as great as today,, but they got the point accross.
 The atmosphere of the movie was pretty good, and the fact that it had desicated walking corpses was cool.
It had a pretty high production value at the time it was made.
 You got to see it guys,,6.5 out of 10

It took me back to the days when they didnt sacrifice story in favor of cgi effects.

Im talking about the usual pimply faced nerd geeks who watch nothing but sci fi and anime and think they know everything about whats going on in the movie industry.
Ive allways found it a rule of thumb that if these basement dwellers hate something that its going to be good.
Like the Matrix movies,, they all hated it,, BUT I guarantee you that they all have it on dvd and seen them a million times.
Same as the Star Wars movies,, they rip it a new arse,, then they end up secretly liking it.
Soooo,, from what Ive read from the pimple brigade,, they hate it and find everything wrong with that movie,, so it ought to be good.

From what Ive read, many concider it a rehash of Dances With Wolves in alot of ways.
 Its long,, and rather meandering,, but personaly,, I like movies that are like that.
 The Postman is like that, and still one of my favorite movies. I love epic leangth movies,, it seems a waste for a movie with a decent story to be only an hour and a half.
 I allways was a big fan of cinema, and at one time had this dream of being a film maker. SO I tend to look at movies differently than an average viewer.
 Avatar seems to be one of those movies that either you dont like, or you do like.
Im going to go see it with my son tonight in Ft Smith.

Leave Her to Heaven
It was a featured t0rr3nt on KG, and I've been meaning to watch it, so I snatched it. I've seen Gene Tierney in Laura before, and she wasn't terribly impressive, except for the overwhelming pretty. Now in technicolor she's even more overwhelmingly pretty, but made my blood run cold. Vincent Price was a bit ugh though.

No, actually, Avatar is beautiful and fantastic in all ways.

But it'll depend on who you are and what kind of movies you dig as to whether you're really going to like it, honestly.

I'm still having difficulty focusing my thoughts on it yet, but I will come back with something, later. In fact, you may have to ask me to stop talking about it...  :D

But, without a doubt, see it in the 3-D IMAX version if you can. I normally wouldn't advocate that, but the 3-D effects are really amazing and are used more to create atmosphere (literally in some cases) and mood rather than to just shove things in your face.

Suffice for now to say, if you liked Aliens, Terminator 1 & 2, The Abyss and to a lesser extent Titanic, you really need to see this movie. In IMAX 3-D...  :D

More tomorrow...

It's supposed to be film noir, but it's debatable. Gene Tierney is...  :-X watch it ;D She had a bangin' body :o there's this scene that looks like it's right out from James Bond.

One thing to say about Avatar:  WOW!!!!!

Ok,, I dont usualy like many of the so called "popular" movies,, I generaly stay away from them because they are just marketing strategies put on film to sell toys of video games.
But Avatar is worth the time. Awsome movie with a nice messege to it.
 I dont think everyone will like it,, but I know I LOVED it.
I didnt see it in the IMAX format,, just the regular 2 d,, but even then it was really good.
Usualy when you watch a movie like this its all about the cgi effects and no story.
This is the first time ive sat all the way through a movie with this much cgi and thought it had a damn good story behind it.
I kinda had a feeling that since the usualy pimple brigade didnt like it that it might be a good movie.
 It made you think about alot of things that happened during the 1800s with the whites and the Native Americans, or things during the British Expansion.
 I guess the Basement Dwellers dont like movies that make you think.

I believe a little of both of those to ideas. It bugs me that his 'homages' are so over appreciated because so many people haven't done the work and sought out what he was inspired by. But, he is pretty good at what he does. He's one of those people that I take for what he is.

Inglourious Basterds was a homage to Sergio Leone's westerns, starting with "Once upon a time in..." and the opening scene was almost exactly the same as the opening to The Good, The Bad and The Ugly with Angel Eyes.
I really liked Kill Bill, and IB is my fav of the year (gonna see Avatar later so maybe not) but then I didn't really like Reservoir Dogs. Haven't seen Pulp Fiction :-\

Wiki Sez :
Quentin Tarantino as an unnamed Nazi footman (the first to be depicted being scalped),
and also as an American sergeant in the German propaganda film-within-a-film,
"Nation's Pride", with a single spoken line: "I implore you, we must destroy that tower!".
It is a recurring feature of Tarantino's movies for the director himself to appear in a cameo role.

I need to see that movie.
 You got to understand the movies he was influenced by,, things like the 70s exploitation films,, the Italian westerns from the 70s etc.
 Robert Rodriguez ( sp) is almost the same,, I have Planet Terror ( of course,, zombies) and the El Mariachi movies ( Tarrantino played in number 2,, Desperado)
 I like Reservoir Dogs because it was a throwback to the single set films of the early 70s.

Seriously poo screenplay. Ooh pretty blue people. Sam Worthington is kind of bland, but watchable. Is Zoe Saldana going to be the new Sigourney Weaver? Star Trek, and now Avatar. She's great anyway.

And I was totally right about the 3-D, eh goldshirt?  ;) :D

I've seen a few other decent to terrible flicks in the last few days, but I'll post on 'em later...

 District 9 was definitly not for everyone. It hit me pretty hard at times.
I lived in the 80s when the whole AQparthide thingie was going on, and during the Cuban refugee thing was going on during the Carter Administration.
Ive seen Barling Arkansas where the Cuban refugees were encamped and saw the reports of how they were treated.
District 9 reminded me so much of those times and what I saw in Barling Arkansas.
 I think I liked it so much because it hit home for me and reminded me of those times.

I think she should play Ripley in the prequel to the Alien series, where a renegade group of Giger Aliens (Xeno-something? I can never remember) fall into a singularity or something and go back in time.  These aliens would encounter a ship (or planet) where they attack a group of human colonists, but a young Ellen Ripley is within this group of humans and she's having one of it!  Oh, this makes an alternate timeline so all the other films won't matter so much, unless they have transporter accidents.  Or something.

I hope this part of the forum is open to the public, I really want them to make this film.

Oh wait!  Dianne Fossey's daughter!  She could play Dianne Fossey's daughter who ends up being one of them greedy business types and it'd be like A Christmas Carol, but with Gorillas!  AWESOME!

Awsome movie ,, kinda creepy, not high on the scare factor though.
 Cool thing is Argento allways has some angle hes trying to play in every movie.

But I must admit that the movie is kick-ass!!! It is indeed very entertaining and has a catchy story. Great acting from both Jude Law and Downey Jr.
I cannot wait for the sequel.  ;)
I sense a series of Sherlock movie in the future.  ;D

Although, I have to agree that an Aliens project might not be the best use of a younger Sigourney Weaver. In fact, I'd rather see an Avatar prequel that has the story of a younger Grace Augustine setting up the schools among the NA'vi. But by the time that gets made, they could probably just generate a convincing younger Weaver through CGI alone. Especially after all of the facial capture that was done for the flick and the fact that we know what she used to look like...

I really wanted to see Sherlock Holmes.. I heard it was well executed.. but the script could have been lots sharper. Hopefully they'll pull it all together, and make a second one even better. I still want to see it though.

I enjoyed District 9.  It was different than I thought it would be (like a documentary...I thought it was going to be more sci-fi action type).  My only problem with it was I was eating while I was watching it and nearly lost it when the guy was starting to get ill.  Seriously, I had to turn it off.  I watched Big Stan instead and came back to District 9 after my stomach had settled.

The original company that put that movie out was Dead/Alive Productions also.
 It was voted to be the goriest movie of 2003 by Fangoria magazine.

WOW!!! The only thing that I might agree with you on this is one thing: "Me and the Fam watched". This was not a kids movie.

I thought this was a brilliant film. I think it will be worshiped by any and all people that grew up with some kind of weight on their preverbial shoulders as a kid. I felt a kinship in the boy that I rarely feel with movie characters. I do think it was marketed to strongly as a children film. Although if your child were a teenager when seeing it, they might of really liked it. But it was definately to deep for a child. The intention is to see a light at the end of the tunnel but it was buried WAY to deep for a kid to see that. 7/10

That film failed on so many levels I can't even count them (and I can count higher than 100).  It mainly failed because the film had to be made in such a way that it not overly frighten its intended audience (children).  Because of that it lacked all the essential elements of the book (like danger and excitement) and all in all it would have sent me to sleep at 1 in the afternoon.

As mentioned, to each his own, different people can see different things in film and literature. Where you were disapointed, I on the other hand was not. I was pleasantly surprised.

Great when two different opinions can appear on the same thread without trying to intentionally overshadow one another isnt it?

I think you are both insane. I cant find a single good quality about that film. Of course IM the minority here.
You should watch Moon (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1182345/).  I've not seen District 9 yet, but Moon received some good reviews as well.

Yeah, you should watch Moon, but not because it's meant to be good.  It's probably really awful, I can't really say until you've watched it.  And even then, I'll probably not say how awful it it unless a few more people see it.

I watched it in the cinema twice.  The second time I saw it was in Prince Charles Cinema (just off Leicester Square in London).  From the e-mails I've received, it looks like they've had Zowie coming in every other week for Q and A sessions.

I didn't like it there, too many people make too much noise.

This has nothing to do with you or I and is purely my take on Spike Jonze attempt to reflect his own vision of a neurotic world we live in.  Whilst the film may do this and even do it well, though in the process he confused just about everyone with it from the film producers downward - I dislike him using Maurice Sendak's book as a vessel to do it.  In my opinion great books that are made into films (no matter how short), should attempt to do them justice.

Anyway it's so much better if you can read the book first and then you watch the movie in question.

"Where the wild things are" is less than 200 words I believe but it was full of excitment at even that.  I wish that Sendak had been part-director of this film rather than part-producer, as it may have been just as colourful as his book if he had.

Agreed. And that is why I liked it. I like "remakes" with a new twist. Whether its book ->film, film -> film, etc I like it when a creator makes it their own.

Just watched "Exract" with Justin Bateman, etc. It was eh......cute moments but wont see it again nor would I have paid to see it. But for a lazy day film it was ok. 5/10

outlander - disapointed to be truthful.

^ that's also why I started a B-movie thread for movies that are sort of bad, but have something redeeming despite their badness.

I didn't think the newer Italian job was so bad. I thought it was watchable. I think Mark Wahlberg is a decent enough actor, so maybe that's why I thought it was passable. Oh, and Jason Statham was in it too... Cute guys, and cute cars ::)

I just watched The Castle. It was on IFC. I've seen parts of it before, but it's good enough I wanted to watch it start to finish.

I know that book intimately (like most kids of my generation), having had it as a reading book at infant school, loving it so much I pestered my mother to buy it for me (which she did) and reading it (and copying drawings from it) so often it fell to pieces. I even replaced it as an adult (with a softcover version) - which I still have.

When I heard they were making a film, I couldn't see how such a short story could be made into a film and assumed it would literally be a completely new story based on the books characters (almost like Max's return visit to the wild things), so I've not bothered watching it because I think I'll be disappointed. If the kids ask to watch it, then I'll watch it with them, otherwise I'll probably give it a miss.


I'll be watching District 9 tonight.

I have 2 copies of the book within reach at this moment.

If you forget the book for a moment you may well enjoy the film. 

There is none of the gleeful "rumpus" and frivolities like the uncommented, illustrated part of the book (which in my view is where they missed a trick as that part was begging for some creative licence), but the quite serious and depressed tone of the film that replaced it did make it strangely endearing to a degree.

The Hensonesc costumes are near perfect but you will notice that their expressions are that of the troubled adults that feature in the film - which I believe was Jonze's aim.

Funny you should say that, when I first saw a trailer for this film and was trying to describe what the creatures looked and moved like to a friend, I said, "just think of Sweetums".

Another book I loved when I was little was The Very Hungry Caterpillar, I'm half expecting to hear that's going to be made into a flick.  :D

I saw District 9 and thought it was pretty good. Was it a good social commentary on immigration or multiculturalism? Not sure. I just loved the way people exploded when they were shot with the alien guns. Good acting, pretty good story, good effects and the look of it seemed authentic - you could believe District 9 had been lived in for 20 years by insectoid aliens.
The only down points were a bit too much sappiness crept in, some of the plot was a bit predictable and the kid alien's face kept reminding me of WALL?E.

Overall...

District 9 = 7/10

I was a little uneasy to begin with as setting it in S.A and then almost quoting the rhetoric of certainly the Boer-Afrikaners, if not the majority of whites during apartheid, but when I accepted that as a catalyst for smashing reality and fantasy together, I rather enjoyed the film especially the CGI. 

I did find Wikus van de Merwe a little "Arthur Dent" like in as much as he was completely ill equipped for such an adventure, but it did help to make the film less testosterone driven as it would have been if a muscle man had been in the starring role.

I go along with 7/10.

I watched The Devils Tomb last night when I got in.
I lik alot of Cuba Googing Jr.'s work. Men Of Honor was amazing ( but it had Dinero,, so im biased abo9ut that).
The Devils Tomb was a good aidea,, Cuba's work was pretty good,, but over all it wasnt anything to write home about.
Ron Pearlman was in it,, but since he did that movie and The Mutant Chronicles with Thomas Jane ( Punisher, The Mist) his carreer hit a landslide.
I think the last movie he was in that I liked was Alien Resurection which fit his personality much better.
 I think his carreer ended pretty much after Beuty and the Beast went off the air back in 1990 ( If I remember the year right).
 Now,, I love the off the beaten trail type of movies and indie films,, but this one Ill have to give a 4/10.

Post by: JackFrost on January 04, 2010, 04:48:17 PM
Okay, so I went through a buncha flicks over my 2 weeks vacation. A rather weird lot, actually...

Extract (2009) 6/10

Mike Judge's 3rd flick after Office Space and Idiocracy, is a lot of fun, but is nowhere near as clever or funny as his 1st two.
Spoiler (hover to show)

The Frighteners (Director's Cut) (1996) 9/10

I was already a fan of this little Peter Jackson gem to begin with, so I was definitely on-board for a director's cut.

Well, the new stuff isn't disappointing, but it's mostly little stuff. Snippets of dialog and such. But there are a couple of fairly extensive scenes that flesh out Michael J. Fox's character a little.

If you liked the flick, there's just mosr to like here, but the new stuff doesn't alter the film in any kind of drastic way.

The High Life (2009) 6/10

Set in 1983, richard (played by Timothy Olyphant) is working in a hospital in order to keep himself close to a supply line of morphine. However, he gets fired from the job when his former cellmate, Bug, gets paroled and finds him working there.

While walking home with Bug, richard decides to get some cash from the bank, pulling it from a new-fangled machine called an A-T-M, something Bug had never seen nor heard of before having been in prison on a long stint. But they both reckon that it would be fairly simple to steal from them given the proper plan.

Spoiler (hover to show)

Not the greatest movie ever, but it has it's moments - also it's only 78 minutes long, so it doesn't take up too much time.

The Hurt Locker (2009) 8/10

I really liked this one quite a bit.

It follows a bomb removal unit in Iraq and the struggles that they go through disarming makeshift bombs (IEDs) left by 'insurgents' to kill Coalition soldiers.

Sgt. William James (played by Jeremy Renner who may get an Oscar nod) is put in charge of a bomb squad that is a little over a month from the end of its tour. The crew doesn't like Sgt. James much at the beginning because he's reckless. He takes very little precaution in dealing with very grave matters and it wrankles his other men.

Spoiler (hover to show)

It's still a very good flick tho, and doesn't have nearly the goofy machismo that Point Break had...  :D

Inglourious Basterds (2009) 9/10

After hearing so many disparate reviews I had to see this one myself.

Wow.

What a great movie! Wholly, blantantly and completely historically inaccurate, but hey if you can't figure that out then you're a reh-tard.

Spoiler (hover to show)

Christoph Waltz as Col. Hans Landa (aka The Jew Hunter) was astonishingly good and he'd better get a nomination at the Oscars for this performance.

Invictus (2009) 6/10

As you're probably aware, this flick is about Nelson Mandela (played effortlessly by Morgan Freeman) giving support to the South African Springbok rugby team as a way of unifying the blacks and whites of South Africa following the end of Apartheid.

This isn't a bad movie really, it's very adequate in many ways, I just found it to be predictable.

And while I understand that it's based on historical events, this isn't what I'm getting at. What I mean is that while watching the film you say to yourself, "Oh, this is the scene where X is going to happen." - and it invariably happens exactly as you thought.

I found Gran Torino to be much less predictable than this flick so I was a little underwhelmed by Invictus. It's worth a gander, but don't go out of your way...

Moon (2009) - 8/10

An unusual little flick about Sam Bell (played by Sam Rockwell) as an employee contracted by the company Lunar Industries to extract helium-3 from lunar soil for clean energy back on Earth.

His stint is supposed to last 3 years, after which he will be returned to Earth. So he dawdles about the station checking various pieces of machinery to make sure they are functioning properly. His only companion is the facility's service bot GERTY (voiced by Kevin Spacey) and the recorded videos he has that have been sent from Earth. For some reason, live real-time conversations with Earth are impossible so the recordings of his wife and newborn daughter (born just before Sam left for the 3-year moon stint) are the only thing he has to remind him of his family.

Spoiler (hover to show)

Overall a cool little movie...

Phantoms (1998) 0/10

I DL'd this flick because I'd just recently re-read the novel by Dean Koontz.

The film is as terrible as the novel is excellent.

Ben Affleck is particularly bad in this movie (and let's face it, he's bad in a lot of things - Pearl Harbor anyone?) and ends up being cast in a part where he should've been about 10 years older. Liev Schreiber is playng a character that in the book who was fat, coarse and ugly...

And then there's Peter O'Toole. He so clearly did not want to be in the movie that his contempt comes through in his melodrama. He was the peanuts in this poo sandwich.

Avoid this movie at all costs.

Pirate Radio [aka The Ship That Rocked (UK)] (2009) 7/10

This was a fun little flick despite all of the bad news I'd heard about it when it came out in the UK.  :)

It's set in 1966 at a time when the BBC would not play rock & roll music, so radio ships would set up just outside British waters and broadcast to the UK what the BBC was against playing.

Already in hot water with Minister Dormandy (played by Kenneth Branagh) whose intent is to shut down the Pirate Radio ships, gets ramped up when one of the DJs (Philip Seymour Hoffman) manages to let a conversation with the station owner (played by Bill Nighy) get onto the air in which the owner says the word 'golly' seven times.

And it's all downhill from there...

Planet 51 (2009) 5/10

Meh.

Not great. Not bad. Just so-so.

Spoiler (hover to show)

Police, Adjective (2009) 8/10

This is a Romanian film (so you'll have to 'read' it) about a police officer named Cristi who's been given the task of tailing a high school student who smokes pot and is suspected of dealing.

But after following the kid for awhile, he begins to doubt that this kid is actually a criminal. He begins to realize that almost every other European country turns a blind eye to or has legalized marijuana. As such Cristi is having a difficult time coming to grips with destroying the kid's life over a law that may not even be enforced soon. Cristi is also being forced to make an arrest when he would like to investigate further up the chain to the actual supplier, rather than settle for a small fish.

As his CO begins to question Cristi's ability to even be a police officer if Cristi can't enforce an existing law because of his moral 'crisis of conscience'. Eventually the film even delves into the very definitions of words like moral, law, conscience and police (hence the title)...

One note tho', the film for the most part is very slow-paced and there are numerous scenes without dialog where Cristi can be seen waiting for some part of his investigation to be completed by others in the station. I think this is used to show the excessive tedium and time consumed just to apprehend a kid who has smoked a joint that he might possibly have shared with his friends. However, it can make the flick a bit of a trudge in places...

I had a copy of this and for some reason I deleted it. Hhhmmm......not sure if that was an accident or on purpose. Ill give it another try though since Im seeing good things here about it. "Why would I of deleted that?"

In reading through Jack's holiday choices the only thing I drastically disagree with is "Pirate Radio" I seriously dont even think that it should of been released in the theaters. Horrid movie. On the other hand Im gonna try the Romanian film, sounds like something I would dig.

We're talking about The Thing (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084787/), right? The same short story also inspired The Thing (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0044121/)? So in a way it was a remake.

Yeah, but that black & white film version, while sill pretty cool, really needed a remake.

The John Carpenter version is virtually flawless, so it does not need a remake - which is what I think goldshirt was getting at... Hell, even some of the special effects by Rob Bottin are still amazing and even look better than CGI at times.

Frost,, we need to get together some time and write a book about movies.

Okay, but if I have to correct your spelling and grammar I want a 60/40 split on all the profits.  :D ;) :P

And I guess I need to look at Pirate Radio again because I didn't hate it as much as everyone seems to have...  :D

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

For the first time ever, I watched this entire film from start to end without falling asleep.  The main cast look very young and I wanted to wrap them up in blankets and bake them chocolate cake.

This is the second Harry Potter I've seen.  The first one I saw was the one that came out last year and that old man died.  I didn't really get much out of this viewing except a backstory.  I suppose it's because of all the hype.  Or maybe it's because I watched a VHS copy on a 14-inch television.

Turns out Harry Potter's wand and Voldemort's wand use feathers from the SAME PHOENIX!  I'm sure that'll be important later on.  I can't rate the film, I spend most of the film thinking how adorable them younglings look.

Four Christmases (2008) 7/10

While this might seem like some namby-pamby Christmas-themed date movie, it really isn't.

Brad and Kate (played respectively by Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon) are a happy couple that enjoys living their lives their own way. When it comes to avoiding Christmas, they generally lies to their families about going on some humanitarian mission in some shithole country when they are actually vacationing in Fiji.

When they attempt to leave for their vacation on Christmas morning, the plane is fogged in until the next day, so the couple is forced to spend Christmas with their families. Because each is the product of divorced parents, they have 4 places to visit by the end of the day.

And what follows is a bent-up trip through dysfunctional Christmas hell, with hilarious results. Vince Vaughn is, as usual, very funny in this flick.

:) (2007) 2/10

You'd think with a description like this:

"After a young actress unknowingly eats her roommate's pot cupcakes, her day becomes a series of misadventures."

...that the flick would be an hilarious drug-fueled romp.

It is not.

Anna Faris is annoying and the bevy of cameos (including Danny Trejo!) do not add anything to the funny. And yes, I was high when I watched this, which theoretically should have made it funnier...

The whole movie seemed like it was made by people who've never experienced being high, but are pretty sure they know what it's like.

Just a dumb, dumb movie.

Night Of The Living Dead 3D.

Its not even a good ripoff,, not there are many ( look at Children Of The Living Dead,, the unoficial direct sequel to Night Of The Living Dead,, should have been Children Of The Living Don't).
 I love a good zombie movie,, mainly for the psychological view of humanity and the reaction to something un natural like walking corpses eating the living.
 But this movie was ,,well,,should have been refered to being 3D more like Don't Don't Don't.
 Its a waste of time,, and they should have paid me to watch the damn thing.
 Nothing was good about it,, and I like to find atleast one good thing about every movie I watch.
This turkey couldn't even provide that.

I finally saw Inglorious Bastards. My first impression is it had a Coen brothers feel to it... which isn't at all bad. They do well writen intense stories with beautiful cinematography. ..and Tarantino does also.. Maybe it was the pacing. He drew out some scenes with an extended quieter intensity. I might have to let it sit on my brain and think about it some.

It was alot like watching a live action Japanimation.
I liked it alot.
Only thing is they didnt explain why the newly resurected zombies had working guns.
 Not a bad premise though,, two wariors fighting each other throughout time over the Forest Of Resurection which is a portal to the world of the dead.
I liked the whole idea that the main character didnt remember who he was and if he was the good guy or bad guy.
 I got to give it a 7/10.
But I think its a movie only me and Frost would apreciate...Maybe Gee when hes high lmao.

Maybe you've accidentally mixed it up with New Moon, the one she saw is a completely different story not based on a book.  It was written by Zowie Bowie and some other guy and is a really good watch.

If I recall correctly, there is one scene with some heavily blurred out nudity, and another scene which isn't nudity but it should be OK if your son can handle Casualty.  I'd stick with the age ratings, if it were me.  Kind of.

I'd also recommend you stay away from the IMDB page and the trailers.  Especially the IMDB page.

The Echo (2008) 6/10

This remake of a Philopino horror film was a better-than-average thriller flick about a ex-con, Walter (played by Kevin Durand) who moves into his mother's old apartment building after parole (she's dead and no longer resides there, incidentally).

Once he moves in, he begins to hear loud noises through the walls from his next door neighbor. The noises are very violent and it sounds as if a woman is being beaten. He listens through the walls to try and make out what's happening, but to no avail.

The woman from the apartment occasionally knocks on his door, crying, but when he answers it she's gone back to her own apartment. He knocks on the door and receives no answer. Eventually he gets a knock and when he opens it, it's a police officer who angrily tells him to mind his own business before disappearing into the next-door apartment.

People in the building also come to Walter's door accusing him of being the noisemaker. Strange things begin to happen to both Walter and the rest of the tenants. The biggest of which is a sharp, ringing headache which ends with blood coming from the ear of the afflicted.

After one particularly loud occurrence Walter decides to actually check the apartment. After pounding on the door with no answer, he bursts his way in to fins the apartment empty. The landlord gives him some half-ass story about the family that lived there and that there was murder involved.

The upshot is that Walter (and by extension the rest of the tenants) is experiencing a haunting that emanates from the apartment next door. So far, a pretty standard horror-thriller. That is until Walter catches through his peep-hole the ghosts re-enacting the brutality that caused the haunting in the first place.

Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel (2009) 8/10

This was a pretty clever little flick that I really enjoyed. I need to watch it again to make sure that the time travel stuff is solid, but most of it's pretty cool.

It has been dubbed "Doctor Who meets Shaun of the Dead" and that isn't entirely inaccurate. Although they forgot to mention Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure which this flick has a resonance to (but isn't anything like it).

Ray (played by Chris O'Dowd) is a bit of a freak about science-fiction in general and time travel specifically. His two friends Pete (played by Dean Lennox Kelly) and Toby (played by Marc Wootton) even have a bet going on how little time it'll take for Ray to starting talking about time travel.

On the night Ray gets fired from his job, the three are in the pub and Ray nips over to another part of the bar where the queue isn't as busy. While there he meets a girl named Cassie (played by Anna Faris) who eventually gets to talking to Ray about time travel. She claims to be from the future and is there to repair a 'time leak' - in addition to meeting Ray who she claims is famous in the future.

Ray is completely incredulous, thinking that she must've been put up to talking with him by Pete and Toby. He ends his talk with her and then goes back to relay the story to Pete and Toby, who claim to know nothing of her, while mocking him for what appears to be a tall tale.

Pete gets up to use the restroom and when he emerges, he finds that the bar has been destroyed and everyone is dead - he even finds his own corpse among the bodies. Pete freaks out and runs back into the restroom to hide for a bit. When he re-emerges the bar is back to normal. He explains to Ray and Toby what has just happened, and when they don't beleive him, Pete suggests they try to make it happen again.

They go into the head and follow what Pete had done exactly (this is actually a pretty funny bit, too) to try and make the time shift happen again. When they emerge, the bar is intact and busy - everyone is alive. Slightly disappointed, they start back over to their booth when they realize they can hear their own voices from a conversation they'd had earlier.

Sure enough, they are all sitting at the table as they had been about a half-hour before. The 'time leak' Cassie had been searching for is apparently in the gents'...

The rest is a series of comic-tinged capers with the three guys trying to get back to their original time without meeting themselves and ceasing to exist.

And it's only a measly 79-minutes long, check this one out...

S.Darko: A Donnie Darko Tale (2009) 2/10

This is the sequel to 2001's excellent Donnie Darko which frankly is a waste of everyone's time.

It's only redeeming quality is that they got Daveigh Chase to play Samantha Darko again after 8 years. Other than that, the flick is more or less a remake of Donnie Darko, but without all the heavy undertones of having the main character perish.

Samantha and her bitchy friend are on their way to California to be dancers when their car breaks down in Conejo Springs, Utah. They get stuck their waiting for the car to be repaired and a series of Donnie Darko-esque things start happening to her.

This is the point at which the filmmakers show that they had no idea what was going on in the first movie. What follows is a mess of cryptic dialogue, questionable time-travel and irritatingly 2-dimensional characters.

Spoiler (hover to show)

Had this not been free, I wouldn't have watched it all the way through...

Up in the Air (2009) 6/10

An okay flick about Ryan Bingham (played by George Clooney) whose job is to fly around the country and fire employees for companies that are too spineless to do it themselves.

He enjoys his life on the road and has it threatened when a young upstart shows up with her new-fangled way of firing people over the Internet. If this is implemented, he would then be permanently grounded, something he dreads.

I'm not entirely certain why everyone's supposed to be going apeshit over this movie.

It's an okay flick with decent acting and such, but I didn't find it to be anything super special.

Might be on of the ones thats up my ally.

Trailer Park Of Terror,,,,,
Ok,, this is a movie made from a commic book ( which I usualy like since i used to be a comic nerd to begin with).
Unfortunately,, its not a good movie.
This thing was made on a shoe string budget, and it shows.

Imagine the trailer park dame deciding to get even on the trailer park for a few of its residents accidentaly killing her "city slicker" boyfreind.
THEN,,,she makes a deal with the devil,, kills everyone, and they come back as zombies.
Dont bother,, its not even likeable by me.

Sherlock Holmes (2009) 6/10

A decent flick with a few spotty parts.

Most of them centering around Rachel McAdams who was really awful, I thought. There was decent chemistry between Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, however.

I'm told the film is also much better if you only have passing familiarity with the characters in the Sherlock Holmes novels.

And the fight at the end on the scaffolding of London Bridge had really bad greenscreen effects in it. Let's just say it gives the Nazi blimp battle in Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade a run for it's money on having shitty special effects.

I saw this in the theatre and probably should've waited for DVD.  :-\

Aitraaz

I watched this without subtitles because that's how I found it in my shelf.  I don't know where it came from, but I'm pretty sure it was cheap (it's a pirate copy on a VHS cassette).

The film is about a guy who experiences love at first site (I know this mostly because the girl said "love at first sight") and the girl is flattered he lies about his identity to spend more time with her.  I didn't really like that bit, but I suppose they had to make the relationship seem special somehow.

Anyways, another woman shows up (Grr!  She's mean!  She has abortions!), the man gets himself into a tricky situation, and the man and other woman are soulmates.  I think that's what it meant.

I sat through 2 and a half hours of this.  It was frustrating and very predictable, but I think I did gain from it - another post! :D

Maybe you should watch it with subtitles.  If watching it again would secure the safety of my family and friends, I'd do it with subtitles.

I saw Twilight a couple of months ago, and it was shite. The acting was awful, especially the girl who had absolutely no emotion in her face throughout besides bored indifference. Defo aimed at teen-aged girls. My advice (if you're not a teen-aged girl, or Nobby) is give this a wide berth.

SHITE/10

I think the lines were pretty good actually. I chuckled more than a few times because of all the innuendo and double entendres, but no one else at the cinema did :-\ maybe they didn't get it. But the lines were wittier than the usual Hollywood stuff. Maybe they didn't make it too dry to appeal to more, but it was offset by more physical comedy (big hammer vs little hammer).

Btw, I LURVE JUDE LAW as Watson. So much.

No, Jason Isaacs for me please!  ;D
He's pretty DILFy as Lucius Malfoy :D
But Brad Pitt better not bless'ed be Moriarty. If RDJ can't get his accent right 99% of hte time, it's pretty much guaranteed Brad can't maintain his accent more than 17% of the time. I WILL NOT STAND FOR SHITTY ACCENTS!

^ That's what bugged me when I first saw the movie. The relationship seemed so awkward. But then when I was it again it made more sense. It added the dimension that emotions and relationships can mess with even a very logical mind. And.. that made sens on the level of the stuff with her dad also.

I got the Rocky films box set for Christmas, and last night I finally got round to watching :-

Rocky II (1979)
Still liked this flick even after all these years. 7/10

This morning I was at a friends house and watched :-

Star Trek (2009)
I liked it. I'm not sure how much it tallies with the original series continuity wise, for example, Spock (future version) says time has been altered, so I don't know if the original series follows on from this or the movies are now in an alternate timeline from the series, but as a stand alone (forget the series) flick, it was excellent. I especially enjoyed Chris Pine's impersonation of the Shatner Kirk during the command simulation sequence.

8/10

I also borrowed Inglorious Basterds from my friend and will be watching that tonight or tomorrow.  :)

I reckon it's mostly this.  Although it's entirely possible later events (such as the crew's meeting with Lucifer at the centre of the galaxy or TNG, DS9 and Voyager) will happen, it may not happen in exactly the same way.  I can't remember how much Starfleet training they said Kirk received in the new film, but they've changed his past now.

I do agree with what you said about Pine's Kirk impression, I felt his mannerisms were spot-on :D

In Groundhog Day he always wakes up in the same day. In 50 First Dates the girl has a medical condition that causes memory loss when she goes to sleep. Every day when she wakes up she thinks she's living the day in which she had the accident.

In the new film I got the idea that he basically had none :D Or.. only a couple of weeks, or maybe a couple of months... Is that not right? Maybe they'll make him backtrack and go do some more training. Has anyone heard about a new script for a sequel?

Luckily he was so good in The Moon, it shook my mental picture of him. The story is fairly easy to guess So don't read additional spoilers), but still really good. And the effects and everything are great.

Inglorious Basterds (2009)

Another Tatantino classic. Excellent casting (I thought Rod Taylor was dead  :D), excellent acting (Brad Pitt probably played his character a bit too comical, but his jaw-jutting performance was hilarious) and as usual excellent writing and directing.

9/10

The Book of Eli

Pretty enjoyable and fun flick. I really wanted to know about how they found themselves in their situation. A bit more background would have been better.
Nice and kick-ass action scenes.

The movies can be summed up in 5 words:

Slumdog Millionaire (2008)

This was pretty good, not sure it deserved to be the award-hog it was, but it was enjoyable. The young cast members were probably better actors than the elder actors though.

The old one, or the remade one?
The TV series apparently thought up and outlined by Gene Roddenberry before he died.  It has Hercules taking lead as the captain of the Andromeda and Rommie is the computer's AI - and by Spock's beard, she's the most attractive mechanoid in sky-fie!

On some websites, it's been compared to Farscape with it's "living" ship crewed by a bunch of misfits, but Farscape is magical and Andromeda is a chore.  They had very nice ships though.

In the new film I got the idea that he basically had none :D Or.. only a couple of weeks, or maybe a couple of months... Is that not right? Maybe they'll make him backtrack and go do some more training. Has anyone heard about a new script for a sequel?
Don't forget, Kirk is a genius!

Wikipedia says:
Quote from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Trek_(film)#Sequel
Orci and Kurtzman explained the dilemma for the sequel was whether to pit the crew against another villain, or to have an "exploration sci-fi plot where the unknown and nature itself is somehow an adversary." On recasting Khan, Orci questioned "why take the chance?"[181] (http://trekmovie.com/2009/06/20/orci-kurtzman-talk-star-trek-sequel-and-the-one-after-that-too/) Paramount is planning to release the sequel on June 29, 2012.[182] (http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=62201)[183] (http://trekmovie.com/2010/01/08/breaking-star-trek-sequel-tentatively-set-for-june-29th-2012/)
I hope the next one is an "exploration sci-fi plot where the unknown and nature itself is somehow an adversary", many of my favourite episodes of the series were like that.

I decided to watch MegaFault in memorial to Britney Murphy as well as the fact that there were quite a few other actors in it that I recognized and liked.  Well, based on the fact that I'm familiar with most of the main actors, I'm gonna blame it on the editing and shitterific special effects (how did SyFy put this on their channel?!?!) but this movie is horrible.  The basis for the plot is horribly weak too but that usually doesn't bother me to much as long as it keeps me interesting but this didn't.  Also, either the makeup people were non-union or whatever killed Britney was already taking it's effect on her cuz she didn't look good at all.  Overly makeup'd and rather gaunt.

^ true.. like the Horta.. or The Companion. I like bad ass battles. But it would be cool to see them dealing with a mind psych instead of just bringing in the big guns. Although Eric Bana was good as Nero.

Sherlock Holmes (2009)

A pretty enjoyable flick, although bares no resemblance to the character of Holmes I've read and seen on film/TV, in fact RDjr's portrayal is more in keeping with Lord Byron than Holmes. A good flick though, I enjoyed it.

7/10

p.s. I hope the rumour I heard that Brad Pitt will be Moriarty in the next one is nothing more than rumour. That would be awful.

Pontypool (2008)

A zombie flick with a difference. Instead of being infected with a bite, you're infected with spoken words.  ???
There was a good chance to do something different here which wasn't really taken up due to miscasting of the main male role and nonsensical plot points. If you're going to watch this I suggest you take the conclusions the characters come to at face value (they don't really stand up to too much scrutiny).

5/10

*edit :D
..actually. I think I'm crabby today.. and that was overly snarky..  :P

He'd be the right age to counter RD jr. as a nemesis.. and.. people still think about him in Snatch.. and he's not bad at playing disturbed/deranged people.. so, I suppose I could think of worse choices ::)

after 30 years of playing rugby i had to stop and i never go to watch at my local club as i'd just wanna play.

I watched Repo: The Genetic Opera.
 I loved it,, the music was pretty good,, the acting and characters were good, and the story was pretty cool.
The twist ending was intense.
Its not a movie for everyone,, its exactly what the title implies,, an opera.
But,, its a rock opera.
 The story is this,,
In the future,, there is an epidemic or organ failures,,
 This created a market for replacement organs which a company called Geneco made a fortune.
Unfortunately, not everyone could afford the surgery,,so they decided to finance thier procedures much the way cars are financed.
To keep the market going,, they got the patients addicted to a painkiller,, which they needed to survive for the rest of thier lives.
Now,, we come to the films present,, surgery is a luxury, and a fashion statement.
 AND,, if you cant make your payments on time,, they send repo men.
Yes folks,, repo men ,, to reposes your organs,,mostly while you are still concious!
 Cheapie,, youd apreciate the reposesion scenes.lol
The music was great,, Joan Jett was even in it as a musician.
AND, as an added bonus ( to me atleast) you get to see Paris Hilton ,, and her FACE PEALS OFF!!!!( i loved that part).

Some friends and I did the triple Oscar play tonight. I already mentioned Secret of Kells-9/10 but we also watched A Serious Man-6/10 I dont get the Cohen brothers anymore now than I did 15 years ago. Fargo is still the only I can stand. And An Education-7/10. The young female lead is definately someone to keep an eye on. She was very good! However I thought the film was a bit slow. I dont usually go for 60's-70's era pieces either but this one I could handle. Course I was poo faced by this time too.

I'm surprised Pitt and Jolie don't say they're 'people of the world' and belong to no country :D

GR's the one that cast Pitt in Snatch though.. right? So, I was thinking he might just be lazy and cast someone he's worked with before :P

I need to go read some factual details about Moriarty. For some reason I always picture him matched equally in age to Holmes. And..i've got an image in my head. I'd have to think of the people on the list...

Hopefully he'll cast a good villian. And punch up the script a notch.

Up In The Air - 8/10 Im not a big Clooney fan so I literally had to talk myself into watching this but it was an excellent movie. Im very glad that I saw it. Trying to get through all the nominees before the big night.

Crazy Heart 7/10  Its been told before. Many, many, many times. They should of waited a few years after The Wrestler to release this one. Bridges is a superb actor but he just didnt fit into this role for me. And Gyllenhaal? What the hell? She was all over the place in this. One minute she was an intellegent, thought prevoking journalist the next she a country hillbilly floosy that cant tell poo from......you know the rest.

Its a humans life that you would think there was no way for rationalizing, rationalized. I wouldnt of cast Daniel Day Lewis in the role but it was still an incredible movie.

Sharpshooter (2007) with James Remar and Mario Van Peebles and Bruce Boxleitner.
  A film about a special forces sniper,who wants to quit and eventually talked into one last job.
Not a bad film at all,there's a slow middlesection in the film after a good start,but the end saves it,so i'll give this a 7/10.

You know,, when I talkd about District 9 way back when,, people hated it.
 I loved it myself,, but others found reasons to dislike it.
hmmm,,,, ( thinking )
I still think it sucked. You and JackFrost were in agreement on this one.

Why is that?  (I haven't seen the film)

And I haven't seen Gran Torino yet. *xtopave runs crying in shame*

#1 reason: He isnt a singer and he isnt Italian.
---And you should be ashamed.  :D You need to see Grand Torino.

I believe so.  Is the film one that would bring out the feminine side of me I've been suppressing for all these years?

I watched Eastern Promises.

I thought it was a good film, it kept me interested.  The naked Viggo fight was OK too, I didn't feel like it was wasting my time.

Spoiler (hover to show)

I rate it 6.69/10 because I'll forget about it in a month.  Except the naked fight, that's good for the social gatherings.

Halloween 2   7/10

I liked it ,, but not for the gore factor.
It showed more of what was going on in Michaels head.
It answered a few questions that I had about what was going on in the first.
It was pretty well written,, and Im a fan of Rob Zombie anyway.
 It would have still been a good one even without all the blood and gore.
 Michael Myers wasnt the imortal boogy man that the original vision made him out to be. He was just a madman .
 I like how they made it out to be that his sister wasnt too sane either.

MM shows sides of things that arent told by the pr departments and the lobyists.
I think thats why they put him down so much, he tels whats NOT meant to be told.
I remember watching the one he did about 911. He was standing on a street corner in Washington DC and was asking the senatores and congressmen if they voted for the war. When they said yes he then asked if they had children going over to the war.
They got evasive and finaly had him removed.
 What he had to say about insurance comanies in one movie got alot of people asking thier companies things that the insurance people couldnt or WOULDNT answer.

I agree! Both films were SO much better than the originals. I dont think I have EVER said that in my life. Now, the originals were precident setting films in the horror genres but the remakes do them justice plus!!
Title: Re: Latest Movie You Watched
Post by: Robin-Graves on March 01, 2010, 04:58:14 PM
Oh yeah,, normaly I go into  a remake with five strikes against it.
 The Halloween movies struck back at me lmao.
I remember the remake of The Fog,, the original was so much better written and scarier.
 I love Romero,, but the only remake of his movies that was good was Dawn Of the Dead,, the Day Of The Dead remake sucked hard.
So did ( And I hate to say this about Tom Savini) The Night remake back in 1989.
 Too bad the original Night is public domain, every hack is remaking it now .
Night 3D was so bad I used it for target practice.

Michael Moore's films can't rightly be called "documentaries".  He takes a lot of stuff out of context when he "presents" his side.  I think he does more harm than good.
Title: Re: Latest Movie You Watched
Post by: Robin-Graves on March 02, 2010, 11:28:37 AM
I think he raises some good points too.
He gets a bad rap for doing the same thing CNN and the ilk do. So why trash him?
Everyone reporting something has thier own agenda. Hes doing nothing diferent than CNN, Fox News, or any of the other syndicated news companies.
 I do believe that he DOES show the flipside to what we are force fed by the media at large.
 And of course,, the media and others toss him into the Crank files.

WOW!!! I didnt know Americans were allowed to question Michael Moore?!?! I always thought I was the only one. Glad to hear someone else speak up.

A Single Man
Maybe a bit too glossy and aesthetically perfect to be a great film, but it's good nonetheless. Colin Firth is phenomenal. Julianne Moore is amazing as usual. Never got the appeal of Mr Darcy, but after this movie Colin Firth is marked down as a DILF in my book ;) Makes me want to watch Wong Karwai's work. The difference between Wong and Tom Ford is that all the extra shots of smoke curling to the ceiling and a super close up on someone's eyes in Wong's films add to what the characters convey, but for Ford it's just more pretty. Still, see it in a cinema because the pretty is just too good to miss, and Firth's performance. Well deserved Oscar nom and BAFTA (?) win.

Tideland (2005)
A bizarre flick - you expect bizarre from Terry Gilliam - but this is bizarre in a good way. A lonely young girl whose only friends are her doll heads, befriends the local weirdos - a middle aged spinster and her retarded brother.
This film seems to walk a fine line between innocent and sordid and manages to pull it off. It certainly won't be everyone's cup of tea. Good cameo from Jeff Bridges.

7/10

The Last King of Scotland

I usually dislike films about actual real people. If you make a film about factual people or events then there's one thing you must get right. The facts. This is why I disliked Braveheart for example, because it contained so much fiction (or factual cowpoo). Titanic? Crap. JFK? Crap.
Having said all that, I knew absolutely nothing about the life of Idi Amin, so I could watch this as just a flick without getting pissed off at the inaccuracies (if there are any). I enjoyed this flick a lot. Forest Whittaker was excellent and convincingly portrays Amin as both vulnerable and ruthless. Don't be put off by the subject matter like I was initially. This is a really good film.

8.5/10 (of course this may come down if I learn it's full of cowpoo.)  ;D

I watched The Forbidden Kingdom last night and we all thoroughly enjoyed it (reminded me of my teens when watching kung fu films and drinking Super-T was a great Saturday night).  I thought that Michael Angarano was going to be as soppy as Ralph Macchio but he actually held up quite well and had some awesome moves.  Nice seeing Chan and Li together too and not forgetting the irrepressible 'Monkey'!

As a family film I give this an 8.

I never knew that?  personally old movies like the Ealing comedies and others like 'Twelve angry men', 'Bad day at Black rock' are the only kind of movies I actually make time for.  Most modern films including massive blockbusters, I usually just get around to seeing when the mood takes me.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Children grow up fast.  From what I recall, Harry Potter was the least cute child in the first film, and it's the same in this one.  That's the end of that.  The film itself had a lot happening, I hate knowing what happens to Snape in the film that came out last year (:'() because he could've been my favourite character (I used to have the same hair as him :-[).  I want a root baby! (Mandrake? Mandriva?)

Spoiler (hover to show)

It's fun when you recognise the actors from other programs (the Spanish Infanta (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_TIoBlarH4) <3 <3), although it can spoil the realism.  But this is a film about magic people, and they've obviously changed their faces to appear more like their idols.  It was nice that Shelob made an appearance, I've often wondered what became of her.

I should probably mention I don't care about fantasy films any more, magic isn't real and I'll never be a wizard... not even a bad one :'(

If I manage to get it, I may watch the third film tonight - I miss being hip with the kids.

Live Flesh/Carne Tr?mula

It's a Spanish film by that Pedro Almod?var, which mean it'll have scenes of sex and Pen?lope Cruz.  This film is about a baby that comes out of his mother and then grows up to do stuff.  This stuff has an effect on other people.

I quite enjoyed this film, it kept my attention.  Even when I was feeling sleepy, I decided to stay up to see what happens next.  They speak Spanish very quickly, which was unfortunate because I was curious about how much I remember from High School.

I think you should watch it.

Kick-Ass (2010)

This flick kicked ass. Excellent action film, good acting (except from Nicholas Cage) and excellent soundtrack. I was putting off seeing this because Cage was in it (I can't stand his acting) and he was true to form in a hammy "Adam West" impersonation, but even Cage's overacting didn't spoil the film (well he may have prevented it getting a 9).

I watched this last night with my 14 year old daughter and while I thought it was pretty good, she loved it. Visually it looks excellent, so it was probably right it won visual effect oscars, but I'm not sure why it was touted as a possible best picture oscar. The acting was good, but the plot premise was formulaic. I've heard it's the same plot as Pocahontas, but never having seen Pocahontas I can't really comment on that, but it kept reminding me of the Tarzan flicks - Jane comes from a supposed more civilised society, visits the jungle, mingles with the locals, embraces the local lifestyle, falls in love with a "primitive", helps the locals against her own people and stays behind.

Good film to look at but a more original plot would have made it much better. The kids will love it though if my daughter's anything to go by.

Big Trouble in Little China
I've never been to the US, let alone San Fransisco Chinatown. Some of the Cantonese is awkwardly bad for a Chinese viewer. Nevertheless, I ignored most of it and it was quite an enjoyable action comedy. Strangely, when Egg throws some of his magic dust or whatever he swears in Cantonese. Roughly meaning 'smelly vagina, all your family should die'.

Excellent film about a relationship between a father and son set in San Francisco's Mission District.

why not do a Final Fantasy / Planet 51 ?

A Star is Born
Weird scenes with photos. Judy Garland probably should've won an Oscar, though I haven't seen Grace Kelly's performance. Makes me feel James Mason is even more underrated than ever. He does drunk very convincingly.

It Happened One Night
Funny.

Ninotchka
First Garbo picture. I like her. I wonder how she said half her lines with a straight face. The Flesh and the Devil is waiting to be watched.

Up in the Air
Bleak. Anna Kendrick's hairline is really distracting. Like the other Jason Reitman films, Juno and Thank You For Smoking, was indifferent after viewing.

Belle de jour
Weird. First Bunuel feature. Catherine Deneuve's hair is ridiculously luscious. Weird. Was confused at first, the fantasy sequences are hard to separate from reality. Madame Anais was interesting. Weird.

The Boat That Rocked (Pirate Radio)
Half an hour too long. Bill Nighy is spiffy. Portrayal of women is irritating. Nick Frost needs to lose some weight. Too slow at times.

I really want to see that movie.. even before I heard the review :D

Mongol (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0416044/)

It's a very good movie. The cinematography is fabulous. The costumes are astonishing. The performances are good. The story leaves you the sensation that it lacks something but sometimes that happens with biographical/epic films. I'd recommend it.

I saw that movie a year or so ago. I liked it too. It wasn't warrior-like at all (which I wouldn't have minded).. it was much more relationship focused.

It Happened One Night
Funny.

The movie hasn't been a success in North America, which is why, I guess, they made the remake.  Which sucks, because people in America will mostly remember this movie as the not-so-funny movie with Chris Rock.

Yep, Hollywood makes a lot of money out of remakes. Some are very enjoyable although never better than the original one. I haven't watched the remake of Death at a Funeral but from the top of my head:

Welcome to Collinwood (I soliti ignoti)
3 Men and a Baby (Trois hommes et un couffin)
Everybody's Fine (Stanno Tutti Bene)

They are OK films to watch as long as you don't miss the real deal.

There is a movie coming up called Dinner for Schmucks and it is a remake of the French Le Diner de Cons. Now, the original is extremely funny and is one of my favorite movies. I can't think anyone else than Steve Carrell to play the role in the movie. Yet, I am afraid the movie will f*ck it up like did Taxi. That was a nightmare.
On the other side, Just Visiting wasn't that bad. It was not to the level of Les Visiteurs but still made me laugh a few times. Not like that awful Taxi remake. urgh.

Kick-Ass (7/10)

Finally got around to seeing Kick-Ass, and while I didn't love it, it was a lot of fun (and some things are very different than the comic). And I'm sure I'll be in the minority by saying that Nicholas Cage was the best part of the movie, especially because he wasn't playing that guy that he does in every movie now - especially action movies. I think he might've also been channeling some of his own personal defeat into that character, too...

At the very least, whoever makes the next Batman movie needs to pay close attention to the editing and choreography in the fights scenes. Particularly the one in which Big Daddy takes out the mobsters in the lumber warehouse. You could see every action and the fight flowed very well. As opposed to the last couple of Batman flicks where the fight scene are so murky it's difficult to tell a punch has been thrown, much less who's fighting who...

Alice in Wonderland (2/10)

Just as I suspected, I really didn't like this flick at all. Too much obvious CGI, much of which was tailored to stick in your face to accommodate the 3-D. The acting was pretty so-so and Depp looked like he was just going through the motions with a bunch of make-up and Sideshow Bob wig.

I really wish I could get the time back from watching this...

I saw this a few weeks ago.  I rarely watch films because I find I'm not very patient when I'm staring at a screen.  This film however, kept me interested and I think it is definitely worth watching (especially for the zombies).  It's a Greek film about a family that are a bit... odd.

I was annoyed at

The Net 2.0
Horrible show.  Watched about 45 minutes of it then put myself out of my misery and turned it off.  Bad acting, bad cinematography, re-hashed story plot that was then written poorly, and shitty product placement.  Overall, not worth it even if nothing else is on.

This is hardly a children's movie, so fantastically awesome.

Lolita (Kubrick's version)
Casting of James Mason as Humbert Humbert was spot on. LOL not that he looks like a pedophile, just fits the description in the book completely. I was expecting way more narration, since the book relies on Humbert's narration where offers his personal reflections on each passing matter. It's really chaste compared to the book, which has the BEST opening lines ever that should have been included. With lyrical prose like Nabokov's it's pretty hard to have a good adaptation.

What can I say to put it mildly... BAD.

The only way I could put up with that poo was:
1) It was on TV
2) I was doing the house chores at 2 AM.
3) I was half drunk

The only thing passable was the annoying Russell Brand. That movie was made with 2 cents and must have made buckets of money. I'm disgusted.

I'm on the fence about this movie. It felt like it lacked something, but I can't pinpoint what it is. I didn't hate it, so I guess I'm leaning toward it was entertaining. But -
Spoiler (hover to show)

I will say that it was way better than Aliens vs Predator - Requiem. That was the second movie (the first being The Bourne Identity) that really made me angry for wasting my time and money watching a film in a theater.

Valentine's day -  nice romantic comedy ,would have been better off being made by the British though , it missed that Richard Curtis touch,but still  very enjoyable.

Dorian grey again.still a good watch but the main star lacked that something.

I watched 'The Last Airbender' this evening and am now officially in the "M Night Shamalamadindong is an arse" camp.  How could such a fantastic animated series be butchered so comprehensibly?  I mean, if you are going to write and direct a movie from scratch I'd understand that one could make some mistakes.  But when you have so much source material at your disposal, surely there isn't much left to do?

If I were to give this a rating, anything over 1 would be overly generous.

I've been watching a fair few flicks recently including...

The Departed (2006)

I loved this film. Excellent cast, good story, can't really fault it - except for Ray Winstone's dodgy American accent.
8/10

The Princess and the Frog (2009)

I was expecting to hate this from the clips I'd seen, but I think it was Disney's best non Pixar animated film since The Lion King. No star names, just experienced vocal artists (i.e. people who know what they're doing).
8/10

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009)

Typical Gilliam. Enjoyable over the top flick. Would have possibly liked it more without the overrated Colin Farrell in it (Jude Law was easily the best of the Heath Ledger stand-ins).

I saw it this and Fight Club in the same night two or three years ago and thought why didn't I see these movies sooner? I liked both a lot. I don't like Christian Bale (or Chlo? Sevigny) either so that's probably why I avoided seeing this. But CB was brilliant as Patrick Bateman. He was creepy as hell.

Did you know that Bale's inspiration for his Bateman character was based on Tom Cruise?  :D Article that mentions it. http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2009/10/pile-on_tom_cruise_week_contin.html (http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2009/10/pile-on_tom_cruise_week_contin.html)

Prince of Persia
why does Hollywood keep casting Gemma Arterton in a action role , she's as wooden as a hobby horse .
in fact unless she is cast in a upper-class English role she sucks big time. must have been for her looks  ;D
why did Jake Gyllenhaal play this part  ??? 3 /10 for me i'm afraid

But Michael Angarano is great in it (as in every movie I've seen him in).
Films like this are one of my "secret pleasures" (same as "10 Things I Hate About You" and "Drive Me Crazy").  I loved Sky High.

It made me feel old. :'(

ohh.. I accidentally watched abiout 30 minutes of that a couple of weeks ago. I was clicking around, and landed on it, then I had to go out.. so I missed the rest. When I came back home I realized that it was one I paid for. Somehow I clicked on a pay per view movie without realizing it :D It didn't show up on my bill.. so, I think i only previewed it :P The part I saw was good, and realiatic..then it started to slide a little into a more fantasy hyped up feel... so.. heh, that's all.. Nothing really useful added to this review :D

I watched The Tournament last night and found it entertaining enough for what it was.  Some of the gore was so extreme (like bodies blowing up) that I actually belly-laughed at it, which is probably an odd response..  Nonethless, Robert Carlyle softened it up enough to make it watchable until the end.

Another film I saw a bit earlier than that was Donkey Xote.  I'm a sucker for these undiscovered CGI films but I'm not sure the translation from Spanish to English worked in this case. The story seemed to jump about a bit and for most of it I wasn't sure what the 2 'heroes' were up to? It was loosely based on Don Quixote so maybe I should read that and see if it clears things up.

I just got back from seeing The Town and I thought it was great (not because Jeremy Renner is in it, BTW  ;D). Good heist film with thrilling action sequences. I was impressed with Ben Affleck?s direction of the film, he did really a fantastic job (and I don?t usually like him acting-wise).

I give it an 8.7/10.

I saw Jeremy?s dad at the screening and said hello. He told me he and his friend were playing hooky from work to catch the film.  :D

what the flip? You're joking right? One of the reasons DN worked as a movie is they got the actors close to the characters. It would lose it's 'death noteness' if it was remade. The idea of a Shinigami doesn't even translate well culture to culture.. Plus.. it's about 4 years late to jump on the band wagon :D

Not as good as the originals :P

I'm assuming they'll pretty up Girl With the Dragon Tattoo also, or make it fashionably more hip.

Let the Right One In will always probably win out because they spent so much time casting it. Same with Girl With a Dragon Tattoo, it's hard for me now to not think of those actors as those characters.

Post by: chekovsulu on September 21, 2010, 12:48:58 PM
whats the difference ?
I'm no expert, but when I did kung fu (the teacher lady called it Wing Chun), the Karate classes looked more aggressive and seemed to require more physical exertion.  Of course, these are only observations made upon walking past the classes, but it made my kung fu lessons seem a bit tame.  The karate people even got to say the "HAH" thing they do on TV.

I considered switching, but the Karate teacher looked angry and I liked the people I met in kung fu (one of them liked Star Trek and looked suspiciously like a ninja).

I'm terrible at making comparisons  :D
Title: Re: Latest Movie You Watched
Post by: smokester on September 21, 2010, 01:34:13 PM
whats the difference ?

Karate is Japanese (Okinawan to be precise) and Kung-Fu is Chinese.  If we forget the people that think they're all 'slanty eyed' so they are the same, you actually have to very different countries and forms of martial art.  The Chinese and Japanese have a terrible history toward one another (well Japan does against China) which is bad enough, but if the kid were to learn boxing (also a martial art) it would seem a little odd calling it the Karate kid would it not.
Title: Re: Latest Movie You Watched
Post by: Skadi on September 21, 2010, 05:21:21 PM
^ true, and the people I know those tensions still exist.

in addition to the pc stuff.. common people are more savvy about martial arts every decade, so, they let themselves open to be critiqued on a blatant error. People know the difference between judo, and muay thai, karate, and Jiu-Jitsu etc. I haven't seen the movie, so, maybe they explain it in the context soemwhere. But, if they don't.. they should have known they were going to get called out.
Title: Re: Latest Movie You Watched
Post by: smokester on September 22, 2010, 02:42:37 AM
In the movie (which is way better than the original IMO), young Smithy gets relocated in China where he meets Jackie Chan and so on.  It has nothing to do with Karate or Mr Miyagi from Okinawa (incidently, 'Miyagi' is like the name 'Smith' in Okinawa - at least 3 of my friends there share that surname).

So the film is absolutely about China and not Japan and should not be called the 'Karate kid' as that would be insulting to both nations (the Japanese/Okinawans are rather protective of Karate too), it is just that the overriding storyline is the same as TKK.

Alien Nation: Dark Horizon
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109078/

This was on the Horror Channel, and it's fairly obvious why.  They should have put more effort into fixing the background music.

It's a sequel to the TV series, which I rarely watched.  Although it was a made-for-TV film being shown on the Horror Channel, it surprised me and exceeded my (low) expectations.  I wouldn't recommend it to anyone not already a fan of the series, it's not very realistic.

My rating: 4/10

Actually an improvement on the original, Freddy's face actually looked like burn tissue rather than just mangled, the acting and effects are better than the original (a few effects in the original always looked fake even back then and Heather Langenkamp and the actress who played her mother I always found wooden). The story is more or less the same, although some of the killings are different. A good remake.

I watched 13hrs (2010) last night and thought it was quite good.  Sad about Simon MacCorkindale as it must have been the last thing he did before dying - and he didn't get much screen time in this.  Gemma Atkinson didn't get her bits and pieces out even though her role looked like it should have been included, but the scary parts did live up to expectations and I did pull the quilt up above my nose once or twice.

I give it a 7/10.

Music and Lyrics (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0758766/)

I normally don't post in this thread because I don't like to score movies. But I want a feedback on Hugh Grant phenomenon. I don't understand: he isn't that good looking, he isn't that funny, or that sexy, he's not such a good actor either...  Maybe it's just me. :-\

Btw don't waste time on this film. The scenes from the end titles are funny though.

I don't think he's cute or sexy either. And, most of his movies are pretty average to bad. Soemtimes he gets smart and picks a good false hero part like the one he played in Bridget Jones. And.. About a Boy was a fairly good movie (although I only saw it once..so, I'd have to watch it again to be definitive). And.. I did see him tell a super funny story one time about how his parents used to send him round to visit a serial killer all the time..so, I can see how he can be charming and witty to a point.. but, he's not the end all end all by any means... but, he doesn't disgust me either... I'm jsut sort of 'whatever' about him.

The storyline was okay, if not confusing at times. It had good fight sequences, but they were kind of gory.

Ben Affleck's acting is painful to watch sometimes :( which keeps me from seeing his movies now. Which is dumb, because I think he's a likable guy. So, I might eventually see it.. And he grew up in Boston so he's ok at playing working class city guys. I like the writer who wrote the book.. so I might read the book first, then see the movie when it comes out on dvd.

Jerry and Tom (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120867/) (1998)

A black comedy with Sam Rockwell was enough to get me to watch it.

It wasn't the greatest film but it was mildly entertaining. Acting was good and the storyline was okay. Some funny exchanges between Rockwell and Joe Mantegna. Lots of familiar faces for a movie that I had never heard of. Interesting transitions from scene to scene.

He pulls it off quite well,and i have The Pianist will watch soon.

Bonded By Blood (2010)
In 1995, drug suppliers and career criminals Tony Tucker, Patrick Tate and Craig Rolfe were blasted to death by a shot gun whilst waiting in a Range Rover in Rettendon, Essex. The film charts their rise to become the most prolific dealers and feared criminals in the south of England, maintaining the hold on their empire with fear and violence until their untimely death

I agree he did pull it off (he's a quality actor after all), but seeing him as the timid, quivering perhaps even cowardly character in The Pianist creates an image of him that's hard to shake.  In some ways that made his performance in Predators even more admirable.

Shrek  (6/10)

This is the best Shrek.  It should have been the only Shrek.  I haven't seen it since it first came out, so a lot of the jokes were once again new to me (like that Farquad :o).  The story follows an ogre and his ass as they attempt to complete a quest given to them by their perfect ruler.  It's fun seeing the fairy tale characters and Robin 'ood was French.  I wasn't so keen on the whole romance element, but I suppose it's better than no storyline.  As long as you don't watch it more than once in a year, this is a good film :).

Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi  (8/10)

This took me two days to watch.  I've seen it before, but like the first time I watched Das Experiment, without the subtitles.  Just like with Das Experiment, the subtitles gave me a whole new story.

The story is about a shy person who wants to win the heart of his wife.  His wife is upset because her original groom died on their wedding day, and she agreed to marry her current husband because her father wished it.  To make his wife love him, the man becomes annoying and funny stuff happens.

There are bits of this story that made me feel it was a bit wrong, but most of it was well done.
Spoiler (hover to show)


Baazigar (4/10)

During Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, there is a dance sequence involving a series of famous actresses.  That first one, I thought, was very pretty.  After a quick Wikipedia search, I found the title of this film on her page.  The name sounded very familiar, so I watched it.

I've seen this before, I'm not sure when exactly, but I spent this entire film remembering it.  The dodgy sound effects and action scenes were especially familiar.  I also remember thinking it odd the man's daughter switched sides.  I didn't like this film much, it was too dark for me.


Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (6/10)

So, it turns out Kajol was also in this film, and I already had this but never got round to watching it (they make such long films!).  This film is about two best friends and something happens.

This was a good film.  I didn't understand what problem that man with the curly hair had with the small mute boy, but the sound effects suggest it's funny.


Om Shanti Om (5/10)

I once went to a friend's house, and they were watching this.  This film started off well, but I don't like the way it ended.
Spoiler (hover to show)

The humour was good, and there was lots of nice colour.  I wasn't expecting a cameo from Kajol, but there she was.  I wouldn't marry her, or anything, but she is very pretty.

I spend a total of 8 days watching these films, they're so long!

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge  (6/10)

This one was lying around and I was upset about my laptop heater breaking, so I watched it all in one sitting.  The first half of the film isn't that great, it's about a guy who annoys a girl into liking him and then she ends up being forced into an arranged marriage.  I've already given away too much of the story.  What I found most interesting was the fashion, I can imagine living in the mid-90s and thinking his clothes were cool.

This film is another one with Shahrukh Khan and Kajol.  I couldn't really relate to any of the characters, except for that guy that goes pigeon hunting and says "I'll tell you after the wedding" (cos, like, I totally do that all the time).  He's the best!  He's also the bad guy :(.

I now have 3 more Bollywood films to watch.  None of them are Shahrukh Khan films, so maybe I won't watch them. :-\

So far, yes.  It's a very enjoyable film.  The idea of the quiet, shy guy getting the girl just appeals to me.  For some reason. ::)

More4 are doing an Indian Week, in which they're showing programmes and films from/about India.

I only found out last night, when I was telling a friend about that nice golden dress Kajol was wearing at the end of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, so I missed last night's film.

Jab We Met (2007)

I watched this last night.  The story tells the adventures of a rich man who meets a chatty broad on a train.

A friend suggested it to me.  I can kind of see the appeal with this film, it has humour, trains and lots of colour, but it's not for me.  Kareena Kapoor looks eerily like someone I used to know, except with smaller boobs.  There's nothing wrong with smaller boobs, it's just that I spent this film looking for differences.  Kareena Kapoor has bigger ears.

There's nothing wrong with Kareena Kapoor, and maybe I should just stop watching anything she's in - it's getting kind of creepy now.  I allowed myself to sit through Kambakkht Ishq (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1144804/) when it was showing in the cinema, not even Sylvester Stallone could save that film.  I remember finding Asoka (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0249371/) difficult to watch because of who Kareena Kapoor reminds me of, but that was 7 years ago and I was also a bit upset I paid for the DVD.

They have kissing on the lips in a romantic way in the film!  When did they start kissing in these films?! :o

It's a pleasent film, the characters are likable and although the music bits are a bit boring, a lot of the scenery looks pretty.

6/10 (I changed it :P)


Kites (2010)

I spend the whole day in bed, because I'm boring, and just finished watching this.  This film was mostly in English.  It's about a dance instructor who marries immigrants for money, and then he manages to become the boyfriend of the daughter of a rich casino owner.  And then he falls for someone else and gets shot at.

I thought this was a different film, because my sister has a book and she asked me if I've read it and I thought this was the film of the book (the title had Kite in it :D)

For me to like a gangster film, it'd have to be really good.  I don't like those kinds of films.

This film was a bit slow, they could have reduced the overall running time by getting rid of all the scenes where the two main characters stare at each other, because that's all they do :-\

I liked one bit, that was funny.

I should also mention I don't like seeing desert and heat on film.  This film has lots of that.

It's too soon after watching the film for me to be sure of my opinion, but I will give it this rating:  6/10

Blame it on Fidel (La faute ? Fidel!).

This film is set in the 1970s and is about a little girl, who also happens to be very good at cutting fruit, trying to make sense of the everything.  Because the film is shown almost completely from the child's perspective, the film contains humour.  I do like this film, it's fun and has Commies in it.  Pilar's mum looks a bit like Roo from Home and Away.

Les femmes de l'ombre
Female Agents


I try not to watch too many world war two films because they normally have killing in it and there are so many of them that I'm kind of sick of them.  But this film came on BBC4 (available until just before midnight, tonight (http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00x9b4x/Female_Agents/)), and they only show good films.

This film is about four pretty ladies on a mission to save the the world.  Four pretty ladies mean this film gets a final rating above 5 (one for each lady, but Sophie Marceau gets 2 because I'm in love with her :P).

The film was a good film, every time I got annoyed and wanted to skip something, the film changed scenes.  That's very sneaky. :D

That General guy looks a lot like that guy from Das Experiment, I'll have to look this up when I'm bored.

I rate this film 7/10

*** This post may contain spoilers ***

Since it's award season I thought I'd start watching some of the runners and riders. Over the last couple of days I saw...

Inception (2010)

I liked this a lot - maybe not as much as some of the critics I've heard, but it was certainly entertaining and pretty original. Good acting too.

8/10

The King's Speech (2010)

Excellent. Superb acting, engaging story and good casting (Timothy Spall as Winston Churchill? Who'da thunk it'd work?). This has the potential to clean up at the oscars. Highly recommended.

9/10

127 Hours (2010)

I wanted to like this because I like Danny Boyle and I like James Franco, but I found it disappointing. Franco is excellent and well worthy of an oscar nomination, but Boyle's direction is shite in this. I understand a film about a guy stuck down a hole could be boring if directed wrong so Boyle decides to liven it up with all kinds of tricks, but he failed. The build up to the arm removal should have been slower and longer to crank up the suspense, instead we have a too loud soundtrack and cuts every few seconds which do the opposite. This potentially could have been excellent with a different director and a more fitting soundtrack.

6/10


Over the weekend I'll be watching Toy Story 3, True Grit and possibly one or two others. I'm determined to try and see all the nominees this time round.  :)

I saw Tangled this evening and I was incredibly impressed.  It seems that Disney has finally breathed the same life into its CGI creations that it did with its hand drawn animation - songs and all!

I can't get enough of CGI and find it hard to criticise, but this film had much more than just clever modelling/texturing/animating, it had a soul.

9/10 for its genre.

I watched "A Railway Station for two", a cheesy 80's Russian romantic comedy which I am afraid to admit, I liked. (I am not a big fan of romantic flicks usually).

I also saw "The Battle of Algiers". Very impressive movie and can easily be related to the current events in the Arab world.

Les Ma?tres du temps
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Les_Ma?tres_du_temps (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Les_Ma?tres_du_temps)

This is a cartoon film.  This film looks very French and very 1980s, which kind of makes sense (it's french and made in the 1980s).  I liked the story, it was like in that episode of Deep Space 9, except French.  And funny.  I think everyone should watch this.

Not sure what to say about this one. Good but not enjoyable. I'm glad I saw it but probably won't watch it again. I've heard a lot said about Natalie Portman's performance - and it is good - but Barbara Hershey is the best one in it.

Sinbad and the minotaur (2010)

Is this film so bad it's good, or so bad it's bad? Neither, this film is so bad it's an absolute pile of crap.

No minotaur for 98% of it, storyline that is so stupid it hurts (he obtains a map that has been lost for 1000 years, that leads to the treasure - but then finds the island by chance 5 minutes later and the locals tell him the golden whatnot is in them there hills) everyone has a Kiwi accent (as they do in Baghdad ::) ) and the leading lady's boob an nose job just doesn't fit with the period  ::)

Good film, decent acting. Enjoyed it.

8/10


Ten nominees for best picture are obviously too many judging by some of them - such as;

The Kids Are All Right (2010)

Okay, but hardly Oscar material. Mark Ruffalo and Mia Wasikowska were pretty good in it though.

I saw Jack Black's Gulliver's travels last night and was thoroughly disappointed.  The film moved so fast that if you blinked you'd miss half of it.  In fact, there was so much that didn't happen that it disjointed the film to the degree that it didn't make sense.

The version with Ted Danson was far, far more enjoyable.

I can't believe just how bad this film was. With such a star studded (english dub) cast, you'd have thought they would have installed some emotion into what was otherwise a bland, nonsensical, poorly animated CGI film.

I saw Rio this evening and thought it was the absolute nuts.  The little swagger nuances in the dance sequences was truly inspirational from an animation viewpoint.  Good story for what it were worth too, and an all round warming movie.

Not only that, but now my son is desperate to go to Rio sometime for the carnival.  That's about as good as ambition gets, especially when you're only 8.

I finally watched Splice (2009) last night and thought it worth a tad more than the 6.1 IMDB reviewers gave it.  As we're talking decimal points, I'd give it 6.6 and would have been more if Adrien Brody had used his normal English accent - even more if he knew how to spell his name correctly :)

^seen it... my favorite things are a couple of Meg Ryan's outfits, Jean Reno, the main character's school project box, and the fact that Timothy Hutton was the 'bad guy', but not totally bad ( I never can figure out if he's cute, or not, so it left me satisfyingly still undecided). oh, and lasting want to own a vineyard/villa...it helps to burn away the hideous imagery from the A Year in Tuscany movie.. that movie was awful x__X

omg, I finally got to see 13 Assassins last night :o It's so weird to see a movie that's actually good (not just good, amazing) and you don't just shrug and say 'meh. it wasn't bad..' It really was was flipping amazing. I can't put my feelings into context of people who don't watch samurai movies.. maybe if you don't, you wouldn't like it. I watch so many always that I can't separate myself and my feelings from my feeling of immersion in them. I'd have to assume though that people who didn't even normally watch those kind of movies would agree it's a well played movie.

The one I watched was about Superman knowing he's about to die, so he prepares for his death.  He meets people from Krypton.  I don't know why they were alive, but they were.  His fortress has robots in it and a pet sun-eater.  Lex Luthor goes on about something that should probably go in a spoiler tag.

I didn't really like the film, the volume was too low and I wanted to go home.

I'm not sure of the name of this film, but it was an animated DC one.  Superman looked like Lex Luthor with hair.

I give this film a 5/10, because I think I'd have enjoyed it if I was sober and the volume was turned up a bit.

I have just watched "Mars Needs Moms" and I have no idea how it only gets 4.5 on IMDB?  The story was so-so I'd agree, although at one point I honest to God had a lump in my throat, but the use of MOCAP was superb and there were parts in the film that I forgot it was CGI it was so realistic. 

I'd give it above 7, perhaps 7.5 out of 10, but then I never get bored of good CGI as I can envisage just how much work goes into these films.

"Days of Heaven"
This movie was amazing. It is my first experience with Terrence Malick, while waiting to see "The Tree of Life".
It does not have much dialogue and the story is not anything special. But the cinematography and the soundtrack were amazing.
The lack of dialogue was justified with the overwhelming images of nature. The images spoke more than the words.
It is a great film and any human being should watch it.

I'm going to assume everyone knows the story by now.  I thought this film was hilarious (I like pop culture references, it makes me feel like I've got some life experience).  I think the fact that my beer had a twist-off cap made it easier for me to relate to a couple of Brits visiting the USA.

Some bits really annoyed me, but I can't change them.  Unfortunately.

I watched "Captain America" and really enjoyed the absence of overt CGI (even though itis my favourite thing).  Not being overly wowed by the effects did make you pay more attention to the characters, their acting and the story (albeit a story we all already knew well).

I'd give it at least a 7+ out of 10.

The Million Pound Note.

Comedy film in which Gregory Peck gets a million pound note and everybody wants to be his friend.  I didn't hear a lot of the ending because people were talking too loudly, but it seemed like everything turned out OK.

I know.. I usually just see him as Frodo over and over :P he did a voice in '9', and tv wise he was in Wilfred. When I was watching the movie I was considering looking up more movies by the guy who played the guy who was showing him around.. then I realized it was Eugene Hutz from Gogol Bordello :o ..who, I already listen to.. so, that was funny.

Aksel Hennie was so good in 'Max Manus' that I'll look for him in other movies now. The movie was also good.. but, he by far was the best part of it.

When I was in high school, my teacher asked me to write a story.  The story had everything in it: space ships, space battles, a Captain in command, lasers, space jokes, explosions, everything.  That's what this film reminded me of.  Except I'd never have thought to make every female wear short skirts and Eva Habermann. 

Like my story, this film was awful. Not even Johnny 5 could save it.

3/10 (1 point for Eva Habermann, 1 more because I think they were serious).

I watched The Dead (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1386925/) a couple of nights ago as there had been some talk of it by some old horror freaks I know, but I am not quite sure what to rate it.

As a film it really didn't do much but there are parts of it that are unforgettable, especially the zombie with the fantastically weird leg. There were also some bits where I couldn't quite see the seams in the special effects, like when cars mowed people down - it almost looked like a snuff film.

If you like horror no matter the budget, then you may well like this even though it does not look cheap or badly made, you just have to be aware that it does not differ from most zombie movies in as much as it is just a lot of zombos munching flesh.

I'm glad to hear your take on X-men First Class red.  I thought almost the exact same thing.  Was a really good movie but wasn't canonical to the comics at all.  Banshee's a teen in the movie but in the books, he doesn't even meet the X-men until after he's stopped being an Interpol Agent and his daughter has been born.

Being a fairly hardcore comic fan, it takes a bit to look paste the discontinuity.

Being a fairly hardcore comic fan, it takes a bit to look paste the discontinuity.

It does, but a while back I decided to watch the flicks like I've never read the comics - which means I get to like comic films that might otherwise have pissed me off because they changed things (Watchmen & Kick-Ass for example). Things still niggle, but I now don't mind too much if changes were made to characters or events so long as the film is good. What pisses me off much more is when the comics change characters to match the films.

There was a film on today, I don't know what it was called.  It had that guy in it who played the First Doctor (the crazy old one who finds everything funny).  He played a seaman.  It was a good film, but I only saw half of it.

Internet search says was called "Yangtse Incident"

We all watched Mr Popper's Peguins (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1396218/) last night and we all thought is was rather good.  It was a tried and tested formula to be honest, but there were at least 2 parts where I belly-laughed which is quite uncommon for me.

I have to give it a 7/10 for trying and for the fact that my kids loved it (it was aimed at them after all).

Lighting is probably, no not 'probably' but definitely the hardest part of CGI.  First you have to study the conventional theories on lighting and how photons work on different surfaces etc, then you have to mimic that on the textures of just about everything in a scene and also do other things like 'Light Linking' and also all the shadows etc. The beauty of CGI is you can cheat and and have some things not cast a shadow or not reflect photons etc (which you can't do in real life), but in most cases this only adds another level of headache.

I am still scared witless about learning and understanding that element of CGI, while I enjoyed learning how to model, texture, and rig.

I have been buying other kit for it while I wait, like a triple monitor graph card and an Audiophile audio card to run my studio. All I need now is a 3rd monitor that runs off a HDMI port.

Just to keep things on track, I watched 'Mimic' last night but I'd forgotten how crap the FX were.  Was Mimic 2 any better?

Well, true "fans" can't really complain that it didn't follow the DC Canon much at all because effin' DC has up and YET AGAIN re-written it's history.

I thought the FX were great.  I didn't care that some of the story (quite a bit actually) deviates from the GL history I remember but seeing Sinestro and Kilowog were particularly exciting for me.

I've recently caught "The Guardian (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0406816/)" on cable a couple times this past week.  I've always enjoyed this film.  For being the big, stupid bag of goof he is, Ashton Kutcher did a great job in this movie.  And Kevin Costner's character is perfect.  Good supporting characters around too, Dule Hill (Psych, West Wing) and Neal McDonough (Walking Tall, Minority Reports).  I just think it's really good movie.  If you haven't seen it, it's worth at least one watch.

War Horse - 7/10
twas ok but and that'sCould have more realistic but then no one would have watched it  all.one scene in no man's land made me cringe but nothing too sad to cry over.

must get the Oceans and space ones next. :D :D

Underworld Awakening - another tightly rubber clad disappointment not for me 5/10

The Immortals - I had no idea what to expect of this and after watching it I'm unsure if I like it or not.
needs another watch ? / 10

Post by: smokester on February 22, 2012, 04:23:08 AM
^ same for me with Immortals.

I watched Tower Heist last night and it turned out to be a pretty decent flick for its genre.  The very, very end was a tad silly (unless all the beneficiaries owned smelters) but other than that it kept me interested until the end.

will post again after a second watch.

Vanishing on 7th Street - started off OK , interested me and had me in a nervous grip at times ,but not for to long unfortunately, went on for about 30 mins too long in my view .6/10

We watched that last night too.  The one thing I can't understand is how one bloke could effectively bump off all the main hero players in a breath if he had the inclination, yet all the bad guys in the universe can't touch them.

I saw these a few months ago because I want to be a librarian and wanted to see what I was missing out on.

The Librarian: Quest for the Spear
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0412915/
This film was a lot of fun, the kind of film they'd expect you to watch on a Saturday afternoon.  It has that guy from ER who went out with Abby.  It's like a budget Indiana Jones.
7/10

The Librarian: Return to King Solomon's Mines
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0455596/
This one wasn't as good as the last one, despite having people from Star Trek in it.  It was OK, but you'd probably want to drink a bit before watching it.
5/10

The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1146438/
I remember not really liking this one very much, but it did have bits I liked.  I think I was a bit annoyed the main character was comfortable being an action hero.  Maybe I should watch them again.  Jonathan Frakes directed this one and the last one, maybe he's no good :o.  You need to stop being so picky.
5/10

Last Life in the Universe
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0345549/
This film had killing in it.  I did enjoy this film, but I don't think I understand the ending.
7/10

machine gun preacher - different, never heard of this subject till i watched the movie.
A mean chap. watch the credits and actually see S. Childers talk about why he does it. I do believe there is a you tube vid about this subject going around at the moment.Apparently it went viral over night. 6/10

The Double. failed for me. you just knew what was coming and who was what. 5/10

we bought a zoo - a pleasant family film and worth a watch.a little more humor would have been nice but still a pleasant movie. 8 / 10

Bad box office performance doesn't necessarily mean bad movie. Shawshank Redemption was a flop, as was "It's a Wonderful Life". Cutthroat Island lost a pot-load of money, as did Sahara: I (and a couple of others) enjoyed both of them.

Does that fly in the face of the Barnum idea then?

After about the 6th sitting, I finally managed to get all the way through the remake of The Thing.  Personally I thought it may have even been better than the first for memorable moments, but it wasn't as novel of course so it was ultimately just a kill-fest.  Gotta give ot 7.5/10 though.

LOL!  ;D

I like less and less going to the cinema but nonetheless I went to watch Safe House (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1599348/) last weekend. Although the plot tries to be realistic but it fails the movie keeps you on edge (specially the first 45 min or so) and since that's the point of this type of movie it delivers. Denzel Washington is very good (as usual) and Ryan Reynolds plays a young, eager, naive, patriotic character and when he cried and trembled with desperation I bought it!! That's a first for me. He must have got a new acting coach.  ;D

The usherettes used to come round with their box of goodies around the neck, and always seemed quite confused at all the heads that suddenly appeared in a previously empty row of seats.  They got even more of a shock when they realised we'd also smuggled in our own edibles for the intermission, which were also probably contraband.

When I go to a theatre, I always get a mega-large drink (hate having to miss part of the movie to get a refill), a small back of popcorn (I can't share as I don't use my hands to eat the popcorn...just one of my quirks), and a box of Raisinettes.  The mix of salty and sweet is a nice combo.

Ice cream??! That's new to me. The classic cinema snack around these parts of the globe was chocolate-coated peanuts. I feel ancient right now.  :D

Well cheer up because I too had either raisin or peanut Poppets at the flicks when I was a kid, and now they have been released again and the kids think they're brand new.

I like goobers and pop corn but don't you have to go to the bathroom? I tried to hold it while at lord of the rings when it first came out and I was telling myself okay its going ot end in 5 mins , he's going to throw the ring in the lava….nope.  So , I totally try to avoid getting big drinks at the movies.




Just Saw Haywire I think Gina Carano is awesome ! but I didnt like the voice altering thing they did to her voice.

I have a pretty resilient bladder and if I know it's going to be an "epic"ly long film, I do my best to plan around action and make sure my movie-mate fills me in with any plot-critical goings-ons.

The Artist (2011)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1655442/
An interesting experiment
But rather dull + predicable
Very Over-Rated
11/20 = 5.5/10

HUGO (2011)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0970179/
Much more enjoyable...
As predictable, but so what !
See it if you can.
17/20 = 8.5/10
Would have been higher, if Sacha Baron Cohen were ReCast.

Chronicle (2012)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1706593/
Good Sci-Fi Action Flick
Actors a little old for High School
but such is the Hollywood way  :-\
Did it need the 'Found Footage' gimmick ?
--- NO, but at least it did not spoil it.
A solid 8/10 maybe 8.5

Haywire (2011)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1506999/
Another Good Action Flick
Derivative perhaps, but so what !
The weakest part for me was -
Ewan McGregor - unbelievable

? I did not notice anything...

Sometimes technology can spoil things rather than improve them. 

Some might argue it isn't that far removed from soft focus filming and even stretching the film to make the actors appear taller and thinner (like what was reported to have happened with "Friends"), or perhaps even greasepaint as all 3 give you imagery of an actor or actress that isn't what they actually look like.

That's encouraging as I'd hate to let a CGI film pass me by.
I wouldn't trust my sister's choice of film, she likes films I don't. :))

looks good, but a big flop at the box office, it seems a lot of times big budget movies flop, they later go after downloaders with copyright lawsuits.
Wikipedia says it received "mixed" reviews, which I normally take to meaning you'd need couple pints beforehand (and maybe a couple more during) :)).  But, yeah, they'll blame the pirates with their big made-up numbers and try to get even more of the internet censored >:(.

The Only Son
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0027752/

This was on Film4 last week.  It was a bit odd in places, such as when the mother and grown-up son meet, they were smiling oddly and his wife was a bit too agreeable for my liking.  But otherwise, it was really interesting.  I really felt for the characters, and their situation, and only hope a sequel will be made showing them living happy lives.  I'm not really hoping for a sequel, that was a lie.

Rating: 7/10

Hero
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0299977/

I never liked Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, it was boring and highly over-rated, and it was the reason I ignored Hero when it came out.  Maybe my tastes have changed, because I liked this film a lot.  It was also on Film4 last week.  All the wire jumping action looks kind of silly, but the rest of the film makes up for it.  Maybe I'll like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon now as well, people always seemed to mention these two films together.

Rating:  6.5/10

Dog Soldiers
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0280609/

Also on Film4 last week, this film was fun.  It wasn't as scary as I thought it'd be (didn't even make me jump :(), but it was fun.  These soldiers go around shooting things and have to keep at it all night.  Good stuff :D

Rating:  6.5/10

I saw Puncture (2011) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1582248/) a while ago. It's not a bad movie, it's unpretentious with satisfactory performances, specially that of Vinessa Shaw. The most engaging thing is that it's based on a true story and leaves you ruminating over how big corporations/money/big time lawyers have their way in the world. The main character is an intelligent, tortured, well meaning, drug addict played by Chris Evans. He's OK but he kept reminding me of his performance in London (2005) (maybe it's just me). As I said it isn't bad but if you don't watch it certainly won't change your life.

I watched John Carter straight after reading A Princess of Mars, which is always a bad idea.  Don't ever do that.  It's why I didn't like the film at all, they mixed up events in the book (for time, I suppose) and nothing was even remotely similar to my imaginary version (except maybe the sky).

It's a shame I can't judge it without thinking of the book, because there were enough changes to pass off as only being inspired by the book(s).  Lol.

Visually, it was very well done.

Post by: goldshirt*9 on June 15, 2012, 01:08:25 AM
It isn't an "effects" movie. It is a "story" movie.
Avatar (for example) had a so-so story with magical effects, Prometheus is an interesting nearly-back-story to a well-loved and well-regarded bunch of movies, and the effects are barely noticeable. They are staggeringly well done, but you don't "see the join" so to speak: they definitely don't get in the way of, or detract from, the storytelling.
Ergo anyone wanting a whizz-o effects driven extravaganza is bound to be disappointed.
Charlize Theron is gorgeous by the way. (I don't consider that a spoiler)

Heh, yeah, possibly! :))

Seriously though, when I go to the cinema, it has to be worth the effort.  Films like Star Trek, they're fun films whilst they're playing, but only during that period.  I took nothing from it, I just left the cinema wondering what the heck just happened.  Maybe I just like quiet stories more.  I know the film went too fast for me, I find that happens with a lot of films.  I'm simple, I want the pacing to reflect a nice country walk.  The characters were well done, it reminded me that I hate Kirk (I don't understood him).

I did like first ten minutes were awesome.  They seriously should have made the whole film about Captain Robau, and then used the first ten minutes as the end of the film.  Captain Robau was awesome!  Then the next film could've worked on that reboot.

He knows your right.

I watched Prometheus today. I liked it!! It got me hooked for the 2hrs. and that doesn't happen to me frequently.
I saw the chestburster scene from Alien at the theater when I was around 10 yrs old. I'm glad I'm a grown up now or that Noomi Rapace scene would have marked me for life.  :D
Rapace and Fassbender are fantastic. Charlize Theron is the ultimate ice queen (although plays a secondary character that imo it only exists to make you doubt about things).
One observation and one question.
- Who sets up such a mission with people who don't know each other? It'd jeopardize the mission.

- The holograms: Do they trigger by themselves? I didn't understand how that happened.

I do believe that since two of my daughter's favorites are "The Three Stooges" and "El chavo del 8" (http://www.google.com.ar/search?q=el+chavo&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&channel=np&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hl=es&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=APHdT4WwLIKC8QTducn5Cg&biw=1067&bih=541&sei=BvHdT7XuIYme8gShxMTBCg) (which is a Mexican TV show from early 70's)

Bela died three years before this film was shot, so apart from some stock footage of him leaving a house (and one or two other bits) the parts meant to be Lugosi are in fact a stand-in who walks around with his face covered by his arm so no one can tell the difference. I've decided on a score for this.

8/10
Hilarious, whether it's meant to be or not.
Only Ed Wood would have the temerity to make a film starring a man who'd been dead and buried for three years.

You forgot Carl French:

Quote
Man (Michael Palin: (Jarring cord)...Well, this time you've crawled too far!

Woman (Terry Jones): Oh, Jeb, Jeb! Why did you do it? You could have destroyed the tapes and none of this leftist clap-trap would have happened!

Interviewer: (Michael Palin) An excerpt from Carl French's latest film. Carl, we're all a little mystified by your claim that your new film stars Marilyn Monroe.

Carl French: (Graham Chapman) It does, yes.

Interviewer: Who died over ten years ago?

Carl French: Uh, that's correct.

Interviewer: Are you lying?

Carl French: No, no, it's just that she'e very much in the public eye at the moment.

Interviewer: Does she have a big part?

Carl French: She is the star of the film.

Interviewer: And dead.

Carl French: Well, we dug her up and gave her a screen test, a mere formality in her case, and...

Interviewer: Can she still act?

Carl French: Well... well, she-she's still has this-this enormous, ah-ah, kinda indefinable, uh... no.

Interviewer: Was decomposition a problem?

Carl French: We did have to put her in the fridge between takes.

Interviewer: Ah, what sorts of things does she do in the film?

Carl French: Well, we had her lying on beds, lying on floors, falling out of cupboards, scaring the children...

Interviewer: But surely Miss Monroe was cremated?

Carl French: Well, we had to use a standin for some of the more visible shots.

Interviewer: Ah! Uh, another actress.

Carl French: Dead actress. But Monroe was in shot the whole time.

Interviewer: How?

Carl French: Oh, in the ash tray, in the fire grate and vacuum cleaner...

Interviewer: So Marilyn does not appear in the film?

Carl French: Not as such.

Interviewer: Mr. French, you're one of the film world's most arrogant queens. I mean not just homosexual or merry or anything, I mean you are a raving queen.

Carl French: Well, yes.

Interviewer: I mean, a real screamer, a real "Whoops! Get out! Don't mind me dear!" limp-wristed caricature.

Carl French: Is that not in order?

Interviewer: No, no, that's fine. And I understand that you married the beautiful black heiress Hueyna Tanoy partly for the publicity but mostly to cover up the fact that you prefer going out with little boys.

Carl French: Look, really!

Interviewer: Carl, you're an effeminate little poof, a mincing merry-bar loiterer, a winnet-covered walking perfume shop and an evil perverter of innocent little boys!

Carl French: What!? Really! Is this part of the interview?

Interviewer: No, no, I just wanted a few contacts.

Carl French: Well-well, shouldn't we be talking about the film?

Interviewer: We've been off the air for ages. Now, where'd you find them?

Carl French: Look, I think we are still on the air.

Interviewer: Oh, sod the bless'ed air! I just still get locked up with that sort of thing.

Carl French: What about the film?

Interviewer: Just a few addresses, please...

Carl French: Look, we got James Dean in it, in a box!

Interviewer: I-I can turn the microphone off if you...

Carl French: And bits of Jayne Mansfield...

I can think of a few, or rather many, actors whose acting ability would certainly improve after their demise. Keanu are you listening?

Chronicle (2012)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1706593/
Good Sci-Fi Action Flick
Actors a little old for High School
but such is the Hollywood way  :-\
Did it need the 'Found Footage' gimmick ?
--- NO, but at least it did not spoil it.
A solid 8/10 maybe 8.5

Haywire (2011)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1506999/
Another Good Action Flick
Derivative perhaps, but so what !
The weakest part for me was -
Ewan McGregor - unbelievable? I did not notice anything...

I watched Prometheus today. I liked it!! It got me hooked for the 2hrs. and that doesn't happen to me frequently.
I saw the chestburster scene from Alien at the theater when I was around 10 yrs old. I'm glad I'm a grown up now or that Noomi Rapace scene would have marked me for life.  :D
Rapace and Fassbender are fantastic. Charlize Theron is the ultimate ice queen (although plays a secondary character that imo it only exists to make you doubt about things).
One observation and one question.
- Who sets up such a mission with people who don't know each other? It'd jeopardize the mission.
Spoiler (hover to show)

- The holograms: Do they trigger by themselves? I didn't understand how that happened.

I managed to get around to watching MiB 3 on Saturday night and thought overall it was a decent and solid movie.  The jury is still out with the whole "predestined" storyline as it didn't look like that in MiB 1, although at a push you could believe it.

These are the only films I have let my kids watch that are above their age group and they have really loved them, especially #3. Roll on #4 I say.

That reminds me of a joke I made today.  Somebody was talking about some fourth film in a film series (can't remember the film now, maybe Batman) and I asked if they were going to call it "Citizens on Patrol".  He didn't think that was funny, even after I explained it was a Police Academy reference.  I tried again a few minutes later with another film which could go all the way up to seven (and beyond), and I said "Mission to Moscow?".  He got the reference, but didn't think it was funny.  I still think it's funny.

I want to watch the Police Academy films again, but I'm worried I'd hate them.

apparently this movie was a trial balloon to see if the series can continue without Damon, obviously not by the reviews.

They should have just asked me.  I'm a big Jeremy Renner fan, and wouldn't mind seeing another side to these stories, but the genetic alteration thing is just recawkulous.  But now it's making me think I need to re-read the Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow books again (the whole, parallel stories thing).

The Usual Suspects (1995).  It popped up in my Netflix queue.  Great cast and good drama.  Nice plot twist.  I think someone on Noid fora suggested it to me.

REC 3: Genesis
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1649444/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/REC_3:_Genesis

This is the third in the REC film series, and takes place at the same time as the first (two?) films.  It follows a completely different set of people from the previous two films and is more silly.  I think I read it's meant to be more funnier than the others.  That's probably why it's not scary.

It's better than the second film, but not as good as the first.

I liked the pretty lady.

They're apparently making a fourth film.  This is going to be like Halloween, where the third film was different and they go back to Michael Myers for the fourth film.

Halloween 3 was stupid.

6.37/10

All DVDs I bought recently (among others that I've not got round to watching yet). I fancied watching Quadrophenia again the other day, but my copy of it seems to have vanished.  >:(
I'll have to get it again I suppose.
I was looking to buy the Manitou, but I'm not sure if it was released in the UK. I remember it as being quite creepy (I was only around 13 when I saw it last) but it gets panned on IMDB. Not sure why.

Avengers. Meh. Certainly not as advertised. I was worried it would be schizophrenic, but gave it a shot as Whedon has previously done team interaction very well.

It was not done very well. About the only friendship among the team was banner and stark. While awesome, it's basically five minutes in the film. Loki's observation of them as a damaged group of individuals rang untrue. They were all doing fairly well on their own (Except for hawkeye.)

They did the same "sketch out an obvious future obstacle" that was in the first iron man, I'm guessing marvel shoehorns those in.

It's starting to skew less iron man (Awesome) and more Spiderman/fantastic 4.(Schlock)
 And that worries me. Hopefully Iron Man 3 won't suck.

I guess I was expecting more Whedon and less crapulance. One would think a Whedon written, RDJ portrayed Tony Stark would be a barrel of awesome, and instead he's a fairly minor character in the film. The only person you really identify with in the film is banner. He did get the best comedy bits.

Charlize was beautiful and played the witch great.
Kristen was same o same o , pretty weak actually and no surprise there is no number 2 , they have decided to go with
Chris Hemsworth character only with a spin off

Shutter (2004)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0440803/

I chose this film because I couldn't sleep and J-Horror usually helps me sleep.  The first thing I noticed was that it didn't sound Japanese at all, I couldn't tell what it was.  This distracted me enough to force me to look it up 10 minutes into the film.  It's a Thai film, which I wasn't comfortable with watching before bedtime.  I cannot remember ever watching a Thai horror film, I didn't know what to expect and I didn't want the wrong kind of scare before bed.

Fortunately, I was just being a silly bum.  The yurei chick went around doing her usual creepin' and killin', and at one point I had to turn away because

The story of a Boy and his family set
during the 1976 Argentine coup d'état
and 'National Reorganization Process'
as seen from the Boys point of view.
We are left in the dark about the events
and the level of threat --- as the boy is,
but this is dissatisfying.
I think it would have more impact on
people who lived through those times.
6/10
I imagine the book would be better ?
