Title: What's the last movie you saw?
Post by: MetalCrypt on November 04, 2007, 07:15:18 am
Inspired by a popular thread on the Metal-Rules board...

I saw The Bourne Ultimatum last night.  I liked it better than The Bourne Supremacy (watched that one on Friday night.)  One hell of a car chase in NYC!

The story in The Bourne Supremacy was pretty far away from the novel (currently reading...)  The first movie followed the story of the first novel more accurately.

I watched Hard Boiled on DVD last night, badass film - full of action. Had to go out to buy it after playing Stranglehold on the Xbox 360 (which is a game 'sequel' to the movie).

The Killing Floor (2006) - 3/5

I picked this up at random. Pretty much unremarkable, although it starts off good. The plot twist is pretty much expected, and I feel like I've seen this before. It's not as bad as the other movie Blucas was in in 2006 (the awful Thr3e), but it's not very good at all either. Go watch Rancid if you want a good movie along these lines.

Last night I saw SAW IV and I'm giving it 2.5/5.  Weak ending, time to wrap up the franchise.  I also re-watched Eastern Promises and liked it even more than the first time around.  Viggo Mortensen gives a dope performance, his Russian is spot on (accent coach really paid off this time), the naked fight will make you gasp in disbelief and outrage 'cause his package is visible but the brutality of it is so unrelenting that it will eclipse any homoerotic undertones thereof.  There are goofs, but only a few forgivable ones. See it or be queer.

Yknow, I'm gonna have to watch it again to really digest that, but as far as I can tell, he wanted to honor Bale and such...it was a bit confusing to me too, but then the horse ran off after the train, sort of implying that Crowe would jump off and escape?

That's pretty much what I thought.  He did it out of respect but there was no way he was going to deliver himself, so he probably jumped off.

Halloween '78 - 5+/5

Essential horror, and it just fucking gets better every time. Masterful suspense, a simple story that doesn't utilize dumb plot twists and a score that hooks you in and doesn't let go. This movie's greatest strengths are in its subtle, quiet moments, and unlike Zombie's remake, there is not much blood or nudity to draw in the simple teenagers of today. I can't praise it enough.

I'm probably the only person in the world that finds Halloween 5 vastly superior to the rest of the bunch, even the sacred original.  I dunno, there was so much tension during the garbage chute scene, and when he took off his mask and started crying, I actually felt for Mikey. It's not easy being cursed like he was...

Or maybe it's just the nostalgia talking...

I watched Halloween 5 once. My memories of it are of a middling, barely average Jason wannabe flick with an ending that could've been cut down by like 10 minutes.

I should really go back and rewatch it along with number 4.

Broken - 1/5

Oh, the smell of epic failure. This is definitely one of the most disgustingly brutal films you'll ever see, but IT DOESN'T GO ANYWHERE. There's too little action and excitement, and too many "slow atmospheric" parts, which I wouldn't protest to if they were good, but they're just dull as fuck here. There are some traps ala SAW, and the ending is very SAW-esque, but even SAW at its worst was better and more exciting than this drivel. This was also based off a "real story," but some stories just aren't fit to be made into movies. The end.

PS, this was one of Blockbuster's feature films, and judging by its quality, I can say Blockbuster has some really shitty taste in movies.

Broken - 1/5

Oh, the smell of epic failure. This is definitely one of the most disgustingly brutal films you'll ever see, but IT DOESN'T GO ANYWHERE. There's too little action and excitement, and too many "slow atmospheric" parts, which I wouldn't protest to if they were good, but they're just dull as fuck here. There are some traps ala SAW, and the ending is very SAW-esque, but even SAW at its worst was better and more exciting than this drivel. This was also based off a "real story," but some stories just aren't fit to be made into movies. The end.

PS, this was one of Blockbuster's feature films, and judging by its quality, I can say Blockbuster has some really shitty taste in movies.

Hmm, I've never heard of it.  'Captivity' was a bad Saw rip-off, released 3 years too late.

The Man From Earth (2007) - 4.5/5

What a cool little movie. While it's not the most expertly made, and while it doesn't have any sort of redeeming aesthetic feature, it does have quite a good story and was very entertaining to watch in a "brain food" sort of way. It's not for everyone, and I haven't read the story it was based off of, but I can recommend this one to those looking for good, thinking-man's movies.

NEXT UP: National Treasure.

If you want to gain a magnificent example of a shitty movie, watch "Druids". If you can bare watching the whole thing -that is. I rented it a couple of years ago, it was so utterly terrible that we stopped it after a little while and ended up watching the other movie we (luckily) rented.

The original 1985 "Day Of The Dead". Totally awesome zombie classic! Probably the best of the "Dead" series - Romero really outdid himself with this one. The scene when Rhodes is split in two at the waist and his guts are being eaten by the zombies while he screams "Choke on em'!" is probably on the best death scenes in a horror movie!

Sublime - 3/5

Dammit, this tried so hard to be good, yet it meandered into weirdness and pointlessness far too much. It was like Infection combined with Into the Mouth of Madness, yet not as good as either. The weak "deeper" message really drags this one down. Shame, since the camera angles in the beginning were very foreboding and ominous, and leagues better than what would usually constitute as a horror film these days. But towards the end, I was just wondering what the point was.

Not recommended unless you're really bored.

Definitely the best film I've seen since Rescue Dawn this past July.  I'm a bit of Coen Brothers fanboy as it is, but this film is just outstanding.  The acting is solid, storyline intriguing and just a great to watch overall.  I can't remember any film that made me feel as tense as this film did, and it did so from start to finish.  Plus the violence is fantastic.  I highly recommend it to everyone.

Falling Down - 4.5/5

How did I miss this for so long? This is a classy, stylish thriller that doesn't hold back any punches or make any compromises. Sometimes it seems to be almost bordering on parodying the action/cop thriller genre, but it's far too good for that, and there are a fair share of darker, more action packed moments here as well. The bigger message behind it reminds me quite a bit of Fight Club. Acting is decent, not always superb, but of a generally high quality.

It was good for about 75% of the time. The last half hour was just... too Hollywood and cheesy. They didn't know how to end the movie and ruined it in the end. Last movie I saw was either Beowulf or Hitman, neither of which are particularly worth recommending.

Death to Smoochy - 2.5/5

There is literally nothing here of any worth aside from Edward Norton. If he were not in the movie, it would probably be one of the worst I've ever seen. I don't really get wtf this is trying to do - is it a comedy? It surely fails at that. If there's some moral here, that was also mostly lost on me. It had some serious overtones, which were extremely out of place, and overall this just comes off as a jumbled mess out of what could've been a good film.

Not recommended. How the fuck did I go from almost watching Citizen Kane (fucking video machine) to this?

Jacob's Ladder - 4.5/5

Supernatural, hazy, dreary, and bleak - this film is pretty much the precursor to others I've praised in years past, such as The Machinist and Memento. It's not an overtly colorful film, relying most on a gray, smoggy atmosphere and a healthy dose of suspense, rather than boatloads of special effects and funhouse-isms as modern films of this nature would. The ending is quiet, peaceful, and rather underwhelming, to a good effect, strangely enough. Very satisfying. Get it.

The Birds - 5/5

This is just two hours of daring horror mastery. Hitchcock wins. I don't think modern horror could ever top something like this.

SAW IV - 3.5/5

Well, things are shaping up...vaguely. The third SAW was an underwhelming and pretentious load of crap, and this one at least takes the gore to a new level, with several excellent traps and gore scenes which draw more heavily from Se7en than ever.

I don't know if we'll be able to accurately rate this series until it's finally over, because there is just too much going on here to predict where anything is going anymore. We have several plotlines racing ahead at full speed, and a few which have not even been touched yet. This has so much potential, and I have to say I expected much, much worse. This isn't even really a horror movie; more like some sort of pulpy "whodunit" crime thriller at times, and I think I like that aspect of it quite a lot, combined with the fast pace of things.

The biggest flaw though, is the fact that this movie only looks good from far away - when you take a closer look, you realize how calculated and unrealistic it all is, and how ridiculous some of the aspects of the story seem. Same thing as the others, though, really.

Not great, but not terrible either.

the Saw series is utterly ridiculous. The reason they only show very brief glimpses of the traps being set up (if at all) is because of how impossible it would be for a person (especially someone as enfeebled as Jigsaw) to set them up in reality. Not to mention how convenient the locations and layouts of the buildings always seem to be, amongst other things. It's pretty much the gore/body-horror equivalent of any given Arnold Schwarzeneggar action flick  :lol

Jacob's Ladder - 4.5/5

Supernatural, hazy, dreary, and bleak - this film is pretty much the precursor to others I've praised in years past, such as The Machinist and Memento. It's not an overtly colorful film, relying most on a gray, smoggy atmosphere and a healthy dose of suspense, rather than boatloads of special effects and funhouse-isms as modern films of this nature would. The ending is quiet, peaceful, and rather underwhelming, to a good effect, strangely enough. Very satisfying. Get it.


I pimp this movie to everybody.  I'd give it 5/5 actually.  I like everything about it and sometimes I get the feeling it could be a true story.  It is sad and powerful.  I'm not big on anti-war movies but this one has a message that will get through to anybody that has half a heart.

^ Yeah, it did grow on me. Great film.

Dead Poets Society - 4.75/5

Powerful, moving little drama that seems too short for it's own good, despite being like 2 hours long. You expect a happy, "you can do it!" movie with this, but then you're thrown a curveball, and you realize just how involving and powerful it is. Great acting and a dazzling winter landscape round this off to be a tried and true classic.

The Ugly - 3.75/5

This is a good movie, with no huge flaws, but it doesn't really do anything that we haven't seen already from Silence of the Lambs or other similar films. I have no reservations about it, but all in all, it's a fairly generic "insane asylum serial killer" film that does not stand out. Only recommended if you can't get enough of this stuff.

Hmm, well I'll probably check it out then, if it's not horrible at least. Just to satisfy my curiosity about Hostel on a desert island.

National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets - 4/5

If there was ever a solid sequel, this is it, being very close to a rehash of everything the original had. If you liked the first movie's high octane blend of action and comedy, then you'll like this, as it is the same thing - right down to the now formulaic plot structure. Good, but not revolutionary or new in any sense. Just another solid blockbuster.

Rear Window - 5/5

This might just be my favorite Hitchcock film so far. A classy, stylish thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat and never grows dull or trite. There's not a wasted second of the 115 minutes of footage here. Highly, highly recommended to those who may not have seen it yet.

Citizen Kane

Oh, I won't deny that Citizen Kane is definitely not the clear-cut best movie EVER, but I did enjoy it a whole lot as a glorious and fascinating film that's a lot better than much of what comes out these days. The ending really isn't all there is to it; the movie was very entertaining on its own, and I'd recommend seeing it anyway. It's just a well acted and well put together film that will keep you interested for its entire duration.

Garden State - 4/5

One of those "feel good" movies that I tend to rent at various random times. This one is good, with fine acting and a plot that flows well, but it is too short. I felt like I didn't get my money's worth, actually, since its hour and 40 minutes runtime didn't satisfy me at all. While the characters were definitely entertaining and fairly realistic, they weren't really played out to their full potential, and even the main characters didn't get the screentime they needed due to such a short run time. Regardless, heartwarming and pretty fucking hilarious at times. Recommended.

Primal Fear - 5/5

Dammit, I give so many high ratings these days, but how can you blame me when I keep picking out such good movies? This is a dense, dark epic with no bullshitting or cutting around the edges - it just goes for the throat and tears into you with a powerful plot and dynamic, perfect acting, and since I can't find anything too wrong with it, I'll just stick another perfect score up there. Essential.

Twelve Monkeys - 5/5

This is just an awesome fucking movie, no way around that.

I Am Legend - 2.75/5

Ho hum, what a fucking boring movie. This may get a lot of press, but don't buy into that. It's a PG-13 film, so obviously you won't find anything risky or daring or even mildly exciting here. It doesn't leave much of an impression, and there is no reason to ever watch it more than once. It's all so calculated and fake, right down to the last detail, cleaned up for the kiddies and polished to an irritatingly artificial sheen. In the end, I Am Legend is so bland and pre-packaged that it should come with a Happy Meal.

Not bad, but nowhere near good. Zombie survival horror for people who hate zombie survival horror. Blegh.

All of those films use extremely shaky cameras.  I thought maybe you were mixing up the films since Matt Damon is in both of them.  I don't remember the camera being shaky at all in The Departed.

Requiem for a Dream

This is a bleak, remorseless movie. It is so bleak, remorseless and depressing that I can't even really find words to say about it in a review. If director Darren Aronofsky's 2006 masterpiece The Fountain was the essence of love, eternal life and vigorous spirit, this movie is every bit the antithesis of those more positive themes.

Aronofsky's directing is every bit as compelling as on his later work, starting off dreary, hazy and even comical in a twisted sort of fashion, but before you even realize it's happening, the storytelling is quickly contorted into a demented mad carnival-esque thrill ride, finally fading out into a sorrowful, monotone-gray ending that will leave you thinking, depressed, and most of all, changed.

The four main characters in the film are not deeply shaded with character development and intricate backgrounds. In contrast, the characters here are not really given colorful and detailed backgrounds, and we are provided with just sprinkles and minor tidbits of their pasts, making it very hard to know the meaning behind their motives and actions, and also making it so that we aren't going to start pitying these characters - we can fully see the consequences of their actions, not blinded by any misgivings we might have about what "good people they all are underneath." It creates a very shady atmosphere, Aronofsky has a talent for creating beautiful films on such scanty character development and plot background, and it's another part of what makes this good.

This is a masterful film, and I can't really assign a rating to it...it's beyond all that. Not essential, but if you want a compelling, emotional, and endearing film that will tug at your heartstrings while making you reel back in revolted disgust, and also provide something thought provoking and dense, get this. It might not be something you'll be in the mood for all the time, but when you do go back to it, it will remain as powerful as before.

Stardust - 3/5

This is fantasy taken to its happy, cheesy, corny, fluffy extreme, and I really should hate it a lot more then I do. Stardust is a ridiculously shallow and cheery film that isn't executed very well at all, yet it JUUUUUST manages to keep me from turning it off in disgust, with a pleasant storyline and good special effects to disguise its mediocrity. The characters are not really developed at all, remaining cardboard cutouts on a colorful backdrop - but at least they are cardboard cutouts that are pleasant to look at. The aesthetics here are top-notch, but they are disguising a flimsy, weak story that has been told many times before. This is a popcorn movie for families, not a movie for critics, so I'll give it an average score and not bother critiquing anything more. Recommended if this is your thing.

One Hour Photo - 4.5/5

I love these sort of horror/suspense films. One Hour Photo is a slow-paced, atmospheric thriller without any bells and whistles or monsters or flashy special effects - it just relies on creeping the Hell out of you, and it succeeds at this. Robin Williams is an extremely talented actor, becoming a completely new person here, unlike any other role he's ever done, and the whole package is just first-rate. Recommended.

Office Space - 4.75/5

This is an extremely entertaining comedy with little to nothing to complain about. It's short, so you can go back and rewatch it as much as you want, and it's also got just about everything you'd ever want in a comedy. Highly, highly recommended.

3:10 to Yuma (1957) - 4.5/5

Well here's an interesting one, an original film that is not quite as good as the remake of it. While this is no doubt a classic, it doesn't stand up to the monolithic 2 hour epic of the remake - a monumental task indeed, which is why I will not fault this one. 3:10 to Yuma is a magnificently well done film with no glaring flaws, aside from just being too short and not "meaty" enough.

Thank You For Smoking - 5/5

This is just an excellent movie, and it's exactly my kind of humor too. The dialogue is so well constructed and genius that it never ever gets boring or trite, and the movie never falls into the typical modern American comedy pitfalls of idiotic slapstick and "random" moments. This is a mature, well done, and completely fucking hilarious comedy that everyone should see once in their lifetime. Mandatory.

Stigmata - 4/5

This is one of those Exorcist-esque religious horror flicks, and also one of the better ones I've seen - at least in the modern day, where horror is more or less a joke as it is anyway. While there's nothing here to eclipse it's influences, Stigmata remains a damn good thriller in its own right, with a dark, foreboding sense of suspense and just the right amount of religious terror. Solid. If you like horror you will like this.

2. The Tripper.  David Arquette's directorial debut about an axe-wielding maniak in a Reagan mask killing nu-hippies brutally and mercilessly.  2.5/5

3. 7eventy 5ive.  Also a brutal slasher about an inhumanly strong man in a winter parka killing teenagers with an axe because they made a prank call.  Rutger Hauer stars, and because of him I'll give this 2/5.

4.  LOST Season 1.  Rules very much.

The Godfather

What is there to say about this? There's no doubt that it's a great movie, and being 3 hours long gives it a lot of time to flesh itself out and move along at its own pace. Nothing here feels forced or contrived, and the whole thing - acting, directing, scenery, etc - is pulled off masterfully. I might like Goodfellas a bit better, with that film's more heartfelt and close to home approach, but there is no denying the majesty of this one either.

Rambo - liked it a lot. Bad acting, horrible dialogue and an even worse plot. But kicked major mindless ass nevertheless. It was quite a bit more violent and gory than typical Rambo, but highly entertaining. It's been a while since I enjoyed such an utterly pointless movie but that's what I went to see in the first place. A rare breed by modern action standards but worth your 1 hour and 20 minutes.

My last movie was Rambo as well... in fact I just got back about an hour ago.  I'll just copy and paste my review from another site I frequent.

WARNING: NO SPOILERS AHEAD! YOU CAN'T SPOIL THE ENDING OF A RAMBO MOVIE, IT'S LIKE GIVING AWAY THE END OF TITANIC.


Well, from a purely movie making standpoint, it was bad. Bad plot, shallow characters, piss poor camera (especially in the action sequences), certain characters (namely that Australian mercenary) use the "fuck" word about twelve times per word (not a typo).... and while I'm there, I'd like to add that you cannot make a more ethnically stereotypical group of mercenaries if you tried. Seriously, it's worse than the soldiers from Doom. Plus, am I the only person who noticed that the Asian mercenary's beard was a different length in every scene?

But there are two types of movies that I throw all of my standards out of the window for, and they are zombie movies and Rambo movies. If I go to see either of the two types, I want mindless bloodshed from beginning to end, with little to no storyline. And boy did this movie deliver just that. Let's see, about 8675309 people are killed, more than half of which are ripped in half with a .50 caliber turret. A man is decapitated with a homemade machete. At least 7 people are shown getting their heads graphically blown apart. There is a wanton slaughter of men, women, animals, and children in a small village. A man is crucified and eaten by pigs. A fucking nuclear bomb is "accidentally" set off. And the highlight, Rambo literally rips out a guys throat! Holy shitsprocket!

I do have two genuine complaints though. One was that I find it to be a really sleazy technique to try and make the already insidiously evil bad guy even more unlikeable to American audiences by making him gay. That seemed to be stooping pretty low. Another complaint is that it seems ridiculous that important characters are somehow immune to death. If you ever find yourself in a battle zone, and you get shot in the shoulder yet continue on unhindered, you will be instrumental to the conclusion. Keep that in mind if you ever join the army. Seriously, most people step on a mine, they get obliterated. Mr. former SAS steps on a mine and his leg breaks. Also, if a village is slaughtered, and you are inexplicably spared, somebody will inevitably come rescue you at the last possible second before unspeakable horrors are committed upon you. Last complaint (did I say two, I meant three) is that believe it or not, there was not enough action. I said this same thing about Live Free or Die Hard and got blasted for it. But think about it, there were only three action scenes, with little tiny bits of killing sprinkled between. The reason First Blood was so awesome and helped define the fucking genre is because there was about five minutes of exposition, two minutes of Rambo running through the forest, and an hour and a half of killing.

That said, this movie gets a 1/5 stars on the subject of the actual movie, a 23/5 stars for bloodshed and manliness, and an overall 4.5/5 if you like this kind of movie.

Good review, although I have to disagree with you on the homosexual comment.  Why not?  If they are to be treated like everyone else, then eventually there is going to have to be a gay villain in a movie like this, no?  Give the evil stereotypical Germans who long for 40's nostalgia a break (Die Hard 3).  I don't see it as a problem at all.

Post by: 4th Horseman on January 27, 2008, 11:17:44 pm
Well he was a pedophile in the movie - not your regular homo.

And I don't understand your whole gripe about "immunity to death" or continuing to fight while injured etc. What do you think Rambo does in all his movies? One guy takes down entire armies. He goes into battle, blows the shit out of everything (with a bow and arrow mind you), steals their helicopters, is the pilot and the side gunner at the same time, kills 200 soldiers while standing alone in the middle of an open field, and rescues POWs all in the same breath. Does any of this make any sense at all? Unless you never saw the first 3 Rambo movies, you don't have case for this complaint. If Rambo made any sense, it wouldn't be Rambo and hence, quite lame.
Title: Re: What's the last movie you saw?
Post by: Bastardhead on January 27, 2008, 11:37:32 pm
Haha, the whole gay thing just seemed ridiculously random and thrown in there purely to make Rambo somehow even more justified in knifing his guts out.  And about the death immunity, it just seemed even more ridiculous in this movie than any other I had seen in a while.  I'm not sure why it bothered me, but it just seemed strange to me that something (a mine or mortar, I can't remember exactly which) transforms most people into a meat shower, but does significantly less damage to somebody who has speaking lines.  And what's worse is that the injury added zero to the plot, as it didn't seem to hinder him in the ensuing battle the least bit.

That said, I obviously liked the movie.  I stated before that I want senseless violence and gore when it comes to Rambo movies, and that's exactly what I got.  Most of my complaints are purely from a cinematic viewpoint, as in the sense that a film student would kick the shit out of this movie.  I would point these things out when recommending it to a friend, but I would always end the sentence with "but it's Rambo, so who cares?".  It's kind of like Massacration, really entertaining as long as you don't take it seriously.

As was said on the other site I go to "this movie is all that is manliness, wrapped in bacon, fried, and put on a stick".  I wholeheartedly agree.

Hot Fuzz is one of my favorite movies of 07.

Willow - 4.25/5

This is an extremely entertaining fantasy flick that doesn't take itself too seriously at all. That is the key right there; this movie has a set of extremely enjoyable and zany characters that will make you laugh while still being warmed at the youthful charm which radiates from Willow as a whole. Not reinventing any wheels, but this is a fun film for just about anyone, and so I will duly recommend it.

Alien V Predator Requiem.

A load of bollocks, I only went because I wanted to watch an action flick. Not only was there no story at all (I kinda expected that) but the thing I went for, action, was lacking...terribly. The thrill of the hunt was gone, Predator just jumps in and slashes at people, so do the aliens, they just come out of nowhere and its all over in a matter of seconds. Horrible horrible movie, I had to run back home and watch Predator I and Aliens II to be reminded of the glory days.

0.5/5

Cloverfield - 4.5/5

Well this is totally unexpected, since I really figured I'd hate this one with a passion, but here I am with the revelation that it is indeed pretty fucking cool.

Cloverfield is not exactly the pinnacle of monster movies, but it is a creative and inventive twist on that sort of film, and the whole "handheld camera" thing that everyone is whining about is actually done extremely well, much better than Blair Witch Project or similar films I've seen. Acting isn't the greatest, but it's convincing, and while the characters themselves weren't great, it's nothing I'd consider a huge detractor of the film.

What I like the best about this movie is that it actually comes off as a convincing setup for what an actual alien attack would be like, if it were to happen. Our main characters are a bit reckless, but looking past that, I enjoyed this one. A worthy effort.

At an actual cinema:

Beowulf - Meh. I'd say "where the FUCK is the storyline?" but it IS based on a tiny poem, which is pretty much stuck to. It was alright, I suppose.

Also, more explanation on why the hell he had to be naked so much is more than necessary.

On TV: BATS!

Holy christ, what a terrible movie. Snakes on a Plane terrible. Snakes on a Plane wasn't straight to TV bad, though.

"Karg, this movie is so SHIT, you HAVE to watch it!"

And 'watch' it I did.

The acting was so horribly done that it was hilarious. Some parts of the film make absolutely no sense at all, perhaps the writers were stoned or perhaps killed when writing the plot. For example, the movie begins with that cliche-as-all-hell scene where a male and female are sitting in a car in the dark, then MONSTERS attack! At least they would be monsters, if they weren't bats. Followed by this scene, at some point later in the movie a scientist reveals what I guess was meant to be shocking information: "I MADE THE BATS OMNIVOROUS!". You mean they ate bugs for fun? Damned biology!

The only monster in that movie was the CGI, which was bad even by 1999's standards.

Here's what Wikipedia says:

'Plot

People start to end up dead in a small Texas Town and the prime suspects are bats. A specialist in bats is called in, and reveals that the bats have been engineered to be become a deadly human hunting cooperative. The bat's hive must be found and destroyed before humankind is wiped out.'

I don't think I need to say anything else, form your own opinion about the movie from that sentence.  :lol

I really hope that was a sarchasm*, because Beowulf was long as fuck.  It's like 3183 lines according to Wiki.  That said, I haven't seen the movie, but I heard it sucked from my buddy who has actually read it.


*Sarchasm is a term from another forum I frequent.  It is defined as "the gap between the witty person using the sarcasm and the dolt who doesn't get it".

Yeah, the poem might be long but the movie certainly doesn't give that impression at all, you could summarise the plot in a paragraph or two. Then again, they had to make sure it kept the attention spans of goldfish the general public I suppose.

Apparently the only reason it was made is because Zemeckis wanted to fuck around with CGI/motion capture crap some more.

Just watched Sweeny Todd.  Was it meant to be for kids?  Jesus, I like gore and all, but I was sort of taken aback by those throat slittings.

Casablanca

I've learned that you can be a selfish, self serving, dickheaded, two faced, twatmouth throughout the duration of your life, and you can make it all up in the end with one selfless act.  Plus, you can befriend a Nazi and still be the good guy.  Either Bogart's character changed his mind at the very last minute of the movie, or he purposefully took the really long way to accomplish his plan, thus ensuring numerous snags and at least one death.  Not to mention everything he did was completely in narrow minded self interest until the very end.  It's not even like it was a profound change in character....

Andholycocknosepeopleinthefortiestalkedreallyfuck ingfast.

Overall it wasn't all that bad... I'm just a bitter misanthrope who finds the negativity in something as great as free sex and money (they're both dirty).


And on Rambo, just watch Rambo movies with nothing in mind other than mindless bloodshed, and you'll be pleased.

I guess I just don't like war-themed action movies.  I like urban action flicks, especially revenge ones.  No, I didn't expect good acting but he was at his absolute inexcusable worst here; I thought Eye See You (aka Detox) was very primitive on the acting side but this dropped the bar even lower.  And he's capable - his performance in Copland proves it.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off - 4.5/5

This is just a whole barrelfull of fun. It's really beyond any sort of criticism, since it's just a silly comedy flick, but really, if you like to laugh then you'll love this. It's a charming, 80s-flavoured high school comedy with a hearty sense of adventure and zany characters to guide you along the whole demented way. It's a feel good movie, and it succeeds at what it does.

The 25th Hour - 4.5/5

Why does the cover for this look so much like the one for American History X? Maybe that's why I had never heard of this excellent movie before picking it up off Blockbuster's shelves. Regardless, this is an excellent movie, and I actually like it better than the aforementioned AHX, as this is a close-up, personal, slow moving film about life and redemption and chances to live, with rich, deep characters and a very well constructed plot. See it if you haven't already.

Awake - 3.5/5

This is a bit of a disappointment. It's got a heavy, slick gloss over the whole thing, with big name actors and a touching soundtrack and a happy ending and all, so what happened? This is all very calculated and fake, like a soap opera rather than a riveting drama. It is especially good towards the middle, but sort of falls apart at the end with a half baked conclusion. It is good enough to keep you interested, but this is not a very well written movie overall. The script is just terrible, for one, and the suspense is nonexistent because of this. Hayden Christiansen is not a terrible actor, but he is incompetent and definitely not fit for a role in a gripping hospital drama such as this, for that needs actual emotion.

Awake is an underwhelming and substandard film without enough emotion or realism to keep this whole thing compelling. Only recommended if you're bored, really. NEXT!

Mr. Brooks - 4.75/5

I have not seen this much badassery fit into one movie in a looooong time, and holy fuck is it a treat. I didn't expect Mr. Brooks to be this good, but it is this good, being just about the best serial killer thriller I've seen since Se7en (okay, Zodiac was equally as good, but that was based in reality, and this wasn't), and that is a high honor. This didn't go in any direction that I expected, and while the ending was a tad lacking (only reason it didn't get a perfect score), the endless twists and turns the plot took were top notch all the way through.

Mr. Brooks is not just a generic cop/serial killer Hannibal Lector ripoff; no, it's a dense, hard-boiled, multi-layered thriller with several different plotlines all weaving in and out of one another, forming just about the perfect example of my kind of movie. Superlative. Go see it.

Taboo - 2/5

Is this a soap opera or a horror movie? Fuck, seriously, I just checked this out because it looked interesting, but that was a mistake. The plot isn't horrible, and the premise could've been good if not for the fact that this was made on a rather low budget, without enough real thrills to keep me interested. There's a lot of talking here, and while it's not all horrible, it keeps reminding me more of a weepy pseudo-drama instead of the thriller it was trying to be. The ending is just bad, too. Not a good movie. Try again next time, guys.

The Crow - 5+/5

Fuck, I love this armored, leather-and-spikes killing machine of a movie. It's not the best from a technical standpoint, but it kicks the asses of just about every modern "thriller" I can think of. Early 90s cheese at its best.

Joshua - 3.25/5

This is decent, and it was watchable all the way through, but overall it felt like an hour and fourty minutes of buildup with no actual climax. This is very similar to The Omen and Rosemary's Baby, but without the dark, eerie sense of mysticism those movies had, and there's nothing here that will be remembered as a standout moment in years to come. Passable but nondescript.

I saw "Cloverfield" last week at the cinema, though I'm not really a monster movie enthusiast I thought it was really good. My observations from what I've heard from others is that it's kinda a "love/hate" movie, alot of people say they hated it, and alot of people say they loved it. Anyhow, it's basically a first-person perspective throughout the movie, following a bunch of people through this catastrophic event. The whole movie is filmed by one of the characters' hand-held videocameras. Personally I liked that alot, it made the whole movie feel like it could have been through your own eyes, and made it all more personal. The monster itself was rather cool too.

Ocean's 11 - 3.5/5

This is okay, I guess. Not near as good as I hoped, but what ever really is? The plot is a bit flimsy, as is the lame, half-cocked romance between George Clooney and Julia Roberts, and definitely the underwhelming acting. Pitt and Clooney aren't given a lot to work with here, and most of the time it's all cliched super-slick con artist posturing with little to no actual emotion or anything put into it. Seriously, this could be really good if our main characters had ever shown any emotion aside from the conniving smirks and poker faces they usually seemed to have on, but as it is, all I can say is that this is too generic and unmemorable to merit any of the praise it has been given.

It does get some points for an entertaining climax and the well constructed heist, but that doesn't make a movie. Overall Ocean's 11 isn't something that will be remembered in years to come, so go see Casino instead.

from the netflix description...

Elvis Presley (Bruce Campbell) is an elderly resident in an East Texas rest home; seems he switched identities with an impersonator years before his "death" and then missed his chance to switch back. The King teams up with Jack (Ossie Davis), a fellow nursing home resident who thinks he's John F. Kennedy, and the two old codgers prepare to battle an evil Egyptian entity that's chosen their long-term care facility as its happy hunting grounds.

The Majestic - 4.75/5

Goddamn, what a beautiful movie. I always say Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler's careers mirror eachother, and I can liken this fantastic movie (which remains mysteriously unknown by most people, apparently) to Sandler's 50 First Dates in many respects, including the whole "memory loss" shtick - although this one surely has a happier ending than its rather morose, bittersweet counterpart. The Majestic is a stunning, nostalgic entourage of powerful emotion and riveting drama, keeping me hooked for a good 2 and a half hours. Go see it.

Don't Look Down - 3.75/5

This was an above-average, fun thriller until the ending, which was beyond terrible, full of holes and just piss-poor in general. Aside from that, it had a solid cast and some interesting ideas, and was pretty pleasant to watch overall, if not groundbreaking or amazing.

Sleepers - 4/5

Long, twisted epic spanned out over about 20 years, following a group of boys from their childhoods to a "correctional facility" and finally to the courtroom after a brutal murder case. All the pieces of a good thriller are here, and the acting is great, with both big names and a few very memorable characters. I was kept on my seat for the entire 2+ hour duration.

However, the movie's biggest flaw is character development - I had trouble even telling the four main characters apart for a lot of the movie, and I wish they had been given more fleshed out personalities to go with the intricately woven storyline.

This is still a great film, though, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone with time on their hands and an insatiable lust for a full-throttle thriller.

11:14 - 3.75/5

This is obviously trying to be Crash, but unlike 2006's The Dead Girl, this just isn't as good. 11:14 has pretty decent acting all the way through and a tightly woven series of plot events, but it feels half baked and too short. The real problem lies in the fact that there's little to no emotional ties to any of the characters here. Whereas Crash had you spellbound and empathetic, 11:14 only does half of that, making you sort of chuckle in disbelief and put a hand to your forehead over the "oh-shit-we're-fucked" situations of all of the characters and their bad situations.

Good, but not great or even remarkable.

The Mist - 4.25/5

If there was ever a solid horror story, this is it. Frank Darabont dug all the way back to the 80s for this little gem, right out of Stephen King's The Skeleton Crew short story compliation, and it is a pretty damn faithful adaption, if I do say so myself. The acting is a bit uneven, but the visuals are stunning, the gore is good, and the story is told with a gripping conviction, and it will keep you hooked all the way through to the blackened, bleak ending sequence. Go get it if you want a good, fun horror flick for a stormy night.

The first one is actually pretty good. The sequels suck, the third being the absolute worst.

Recent movies:

Horton Hears a Who - a good watch if you're with your family otherwise it can be a morbidly preachy movie (in a strange way).
Taxi to the Dark Side - some stuff you already know and other that still shocks. An anti-war film for the Catch 22 and 1984 crowd

Highlander might be a flop from a critical point of view, but for cheddar-drenched, high flying Scottish fantasy/action fun, this is as good of a pick as any! The acting is decent enough for this type of movie, and the special effects all suck, but this was 1986, so I will not fault anyone for that. The whole thing is incredibly overblown and cheesy, yet most of the time, it works, and unless you're a tightwad, you will find at least some enjoyment in Highlander.

What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? - 4.5/5

I don't think I walked into this one with the right set of expectations. I expected a low-fi, creepy bit of occult-tinted fun from an age before horror films were bloated, over-done sacks of crap, and what I got was much different. I wouldn't really say this is a straight horror movie like Psycho or The Birds, as it unfolds itself like a riveting drama of two sisters instead. The acting is phenomenal, though, at least from our two lead characters. This one takes a while to get going, but once it does, you are in for a high-octane, creepy thrill ride. Recommended to fans of older horror/suspense type movies.

This is one hell of a surprise. Antibodies is what I'd call the German Se7en, and that is damn high praise. Along the same lines as Se7en, Silence of the Lambs and more recent films such as Mr. Brooks or Zodiac, this doesn't beat around the bush, just savagely plowing forward with a clear, concise plot and dark, suggestive imagery. The acting is all fantastic, and although the ending was a bit flat, I can't complain too much.

Get this one if you like thrillers in the least.

The Illusionist - 5/5

I knew this would be brilliant from the moment I heard of it, and lo, it is brilliant, no more or less than I had expected. It might not equal the unrivaled charisma and power of The Prestige, but The Illusionist is a brooding, sorrowful tale of magic, treachery and love in itself.

Ed Norton does a typically excellent job, as do Jessica Biel and Paul Giamatti, and the atmosphere is dark and, at times, unrelentingly aggressive and angry, despite the tragedy that seems to coat it all. The story pulls you in right from the start, and it doesn't let up for a good 2 hours or so, twisting and turning like an uncoiling serpent. Get this one if you like good cinema.

Murder Set Pieces - 1/5

Hustler magazine described this as "the most graphic horror film ever committed to celluloid," and to that, all I have to assume is that Hustler magazine has not seen too many horror films. Murder Set Pieces has a very cool cover, but that's about all it has, boasting an atrocious sound quality, lame acting and an almost non-existent plot. There isn't even THAT much gore, and so anyone who claims this is violent is probably either a prude or completely insane. The gore here is a gimmick, just thrown randomly at you without any cohesion or structure, as if the director was hoping that some of it would stick, but none of it ever does.

Another one for the back-burner. Avoid.

Murder Set Pieces - 1/5

Hustler magazine described this as "the most graphic horror film ever committed to celluloid," and to that, all I have to assume is that Hustler magazine has not seen too many horror films. Murder Set Pieces has a very cool cover, but that's about all it has, boasting an atrocious sound quality, lame acting and an almost non-existent plot. There isn't even THAT much gore, and so anyone who claims this is violent is probably either a prude or completely insane. The gore here is a gimmick, just thrown randomly at you without any cohesion or structure, as if the director was hoping that some of it would stick, but none of it ever does.


I guess Hustler magazine haven't seen Toetags first movie: August Underground Mordum. That's a contender for "the most graphic horror film ever committed to celluloid." I must say I was really disappointed with Murder Set Pieces as well, it had none of the shit that made August Underground soo horrific. I think most of the hype came from it being banned in a few countries. I think there's a censored and uncensored version as well. If you want a movie that lives up to the hype, try August Underground  :thumbup:

I know I've heard about that one before. Maybe I'll check it out next time I'm in a mood for grisly, gory horror stuff.

There is supposed to be an uncensored version of MSP, but I could see the parts where they had censored out, and I couldn't imagine the uncensored one being much worse, really.

Yeah, I'm not sure which version I've seen, I got a screener copy when it first came out - I remember a scene where he kills a child in a public toilet, I would imagine that would have been censored, but who knows. The only bit I liked was the severed head blowjob, that made me shiver. Those guys are fucking good, I'm sure they'll make another good movie sometime :)

I didn't even finish the movie. I was in too bad of a mood to even care by about halfway through, so I just wrote the review based on what I did see.  :naughty: Not for anything professional, so it didn't matter, heh.

Martian Child - 4/5

Touching, funny little flick with very good acting and a tightly woven, simple plot that will warm the hearts of even the coldest and most brutal of barbarians. There isn't anything here that is terribly original, but overall, Martian Child is an extremely well done movie, so go see it.

Kill Bill vol. 1 - 3.5/5

Oh boy, did I ever hear a lot about this one. The fight scenes are spastic and energetic as hell, the homages are as quirky and silly as Tarantino's ever were (yet perfectly woven into a story that the actors put on with dead serious expressions) and the whole thing is as hyperactive as the Energizer Bunny on a Sunday, and while it isn't as good as it was shaped up to be (what ever is, anyway?), it remains an extremely entertaining and unique thrill-ride through and through.

Kill Bill vol. 2 - 4.25/5

Here's where things really kick into gear. Paying homage to cheesy martial arts flicks, Wild West shootouts and revenge flicks all in one go, the second half of Kill Bill could only have been topped if both films had been released in one box.

I think the only thing I miss when comparing this one to past greats like Pulp Fiction is a whole cast of memorable characters, because the side characters here are really rather bland overall, even becoming annoying at times. The film's saving grace is David Carradine, though, who is playing every bit the character I expect from Tarantino's flicks. Memorable dialogue and spot on acting and conviction ensure that Carradine's performance is ace.

Kill Bill is truly an adventure, and while it is not a masterpiece of cinema, it is definitely one that will be remembered. Recommended.

No Country for Old Men - 5/5

Excellence achieved. I heard a whole lot about this one, and let me assure you if you have not seen this yet: everything you've heard about No Country for Old Men is true. For a riveting, heartfelt, bloody romp through the quiet, frayed edges of the United States, for intense, gritty scenes that will leave you speechless, and for one of the most exhilarating film experiences in modern day cinema, you cannot go wrong with this.

There Will Be Blood - 5/5

I don't know whether this is quite as good as No Country for Old Men or not - only time will tell that - but this is a very, very good film in its own right, anyway. This is most comparable to Citizen Kane, boasting a similar structure and main character, although this is every bit as compelling and interesting, with twists and turns around every corner, always something to keep you on the edge of your seat. There Will Be Blood is a riveting drama, and it weaves a tale that you will not forget.

Daniel Day Lewis's acting is fantastic, and he is surrounded by a supporting cast that do not lack for acting prowess themselves. If you enjoy masterful cinema, than this is as good of a place to look as No Country, and better than most other movies you could pick. Superb.

The Deaths of Ian Stone - 3.5/5

Think Spiderman crossed with A Nightmare on Elm St., and you've got this. The Deaths of Ian Stone is not a conventional horror film, and it gets points for that; boasting an original plot idea and some pretty cool scenes. The only problem is that it is just kind of tame, and doesn't really pull out any big shocks at all. Not good for a horror flick, but hey, the movie is still an entertaining watch for the horror-enthusiast. Get it if it sounds like your thing.

Feast - 2.5/5

Yawn. I was expecting something cool like SLiTHER or Planet Terror or even Cabin Fever, but this just doesn't stack up. It's bloody and gory as all get out, but that isn't enough to make a good movie. The little "profiles" for the characters were hilarious, but that's about all Feast has going for it. It is too poorly put together and too derivative to get very far.

I am surprised anyone liked this flick. How the hell investors keep giving Uwe Boll money to make movies is beyond me. Lets see what other Gems this retard is responsible for...

Alone In the Dark
Bloodrayne II
House of the Dead

In the Name of the King was simply terrible. The dialogue was just horrible. The acting was incredibly bad (and I am a Jason Statham fan). The movie itself made no sense...it is based on the video game Dungeon Siege which you would think would be more like D&D type flick but instead you got large scale battles all over the place and even those were done half-assed.

Hostel II seems to be trying to be one of the new trendy sort of "fun" horror films, but in all honesty it just sucks. The blood looks more fake than that of even the worst B movies I've seen, the plot structure and acting is abysmal, and the soundtrack just randomly comes and goes, never really fitting with the movie's structure. It's obviously supposed to be a lighthearted gore flick, but it just fails horribly.

I think SAW is slightly trying to redeem itself lately, for the fourth one had none of the silliness or boring-ness of the two before it. Pretty good film actually, and not even horror at all - more of a detective movie actually.

The Dead Girl is fantastic.

I didn't say I liked it, I said it kept me entertained, in a similar way "Dragon Wars" did.

A lot about Transformers I thought was pretty lame, but the CG was absolutely incredible and made it worth watching. Normally I wouldn't say that about CG in a movie, but it was that good.

Anyway, I just got back from watching Iron Man. I wasn't expecting a lot, but that movie I did like.

Iron Man's Epilogue
by Mike Krumboltz
May 5, 2008 06:28:22 PM

Iron Man may be B-list, but folks hungry for a (super)hero couldn't care less. The first big flick of the summer took in over $100 million in its opening weekend.

Obviously a lot of folks watched Robert Downey Jr. kick butt as the metallic maniac, but only those who stayed past the credits got the whole story. You see, after the credits roll and audiences learn who the "best boy" was, viewers are treated to an even bigger surprise. Avert your gaze if you don't want to know. Still here? OK, so after the credits, Colonel Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) asks our iron hero if he thinks he's the only superhero (a rhetorical question, we assume). Fury then says he needs to talk to Iron Man about "the Avenger Initiative."

After word of the bonus scene started to spread, searches surged on Mr. Jackson and his character, Nick Fury. Also spiking were lookups on "marvel avengers," "who are the avengers" and "avengers roster."

Those who wonder how the Avengers would stack up against other comic book crews typed in "avengers vs. x-men" and "avengers vs. fantastic four." Members including Thor, Captain America, and Ant-Man also posted impressive gains.

And though it's already a foregone conclusion, lookups on "iron man 2" soared into the thousands. Hopefully fans won't have long to wait.

We see Iron Man in action for 20 minutes (at most) in the movie. The rest of the film could be best described as a B-list sci-fi flick. It's definitely a watchable movie, but I personally would rent it. Actually no I wouldn't, this one's really a download movie.

And Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury? Since when is NF black? Just like how they bombed the King Pin character in Daredevil.

You have to read "The Ultimates" - the Ultimate Marvel version of the Avengers.  In that comic they specifically designed Nick Fury to look like Samuel Jackson, so if you were a fan of that series, it's pretty cool to see him in the outfit.

I thought it was really good.  Imagine a superhero movie with actual character development and good acting.

I watched Iron Man a couple days ago, and having never heard of the comics of the same name before watching the movie, I think it was very enjoyable. It doesn't assume the viewer has any previous knowledge of the franchise which in my opinion is great.

The acting is good, the cgi is great, and some scenes are truly epic. I think it deserves the hype it got.

A very good movie overall 9/10. It wouldn't gotten a 10/10 from me if the ending was better.

its my experience that all "horror" movies have the stupidest characters in film. i've seen movies where theres an American car parked in front of the characters (facing right, meaning drivers-side door is on the other side), and past the car is about one million "zombies" or something. so - the characters - instead of getting into the drivers seat through the passengers seat - run around to the drivers-side door, and get killed. etc etc etc.

Pulp Fiction - 5+/5

Brilliance comes in many shapes and forms. This is Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, widely and rightfully hailed as a masterpiece by several people, and I happen to be amongst them. Whoever they are, they have good taste.

It's tough to say what is so great about this, because there's practically a grocery list of things to choose from. Its idiosyncrasies are bold and pronounced, yet weaved perfectly into a story that is both funny and charming, never becoming stale and never missing a beat. The repertoire of actors on display here is certainly of a high pedigree (Uma Thurman, Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Bruce Willis, etc.), and the way the stories are mixed and matched and jumbled up into the movie's steely exterior is done so masterfully that you don't even notice, blowing Crash and Memento (two films which I also lauded heavily, by the way) out of the water. Everything is perfectly in sync with the other stories and the way they come together is done so well that it gives me fits.

I'd have to write a much longer review to detail every reason why this is so good, but that's unnecessary, and I'll keep it short: Pulp Fiction is a masterpiece, and as the credits roll, either your perception of films (and sometimes life in general) will have changed, or you will be lost forever. Absolutely essential.

Juno - 1/5

If you haven't been living under a rock for the last few months, you've probably seen or heard of this movie. First off, this is actually a very good movie, speaking in strictly technical terms, but I don't like it. The acting is good, with Hard Candy star Ellen Page putting on an awesome performance, and the supporting cast being equally convincing, and the directing is fine. But everything else just drags the movie down in a steep slide.

Mostly this is just too annoying and cutesy to ever be worth anything other than usage as a beer coaster. The character of Juno always has some sort of witty comment or snide remark, and - surprise! - all of the side characters usually do, too, and it is horribly irritating, a one-trick pony of a comedy cop-out that might make prissy teenagers laugh and feel endowed with a sense of superiority to their peers, but if you like good comedy, this will just come off as stale. The dialogue? MAN, THAT IS AWFUL. "Yo yiggidy yo"? "Forshizz"? And the overwrought use of "like"? Barf-central. Jason Reitman seems to think that if he throws enough pseudo-witty jokes and one liner cracks at a wall, he'll create a Comedic Masterpiece, but it just doesn't work that way. There isn't anything really funny underneath all the "hip" dialogue and the attempted wit.

The soundtrack is almost as bad. A load of pretentious, sappy indie emo rock crapola that will do nothing but make you scratch your head and wonder why it's there. Oh, is that part of what makes this movie intelligent and deep? I'm sorry.

But the real problem is the fact that this movie seems to try to be intellectual and deep with its story about teenage pregnancy and the emotional issues surrounding it, but the whole thing is encased in the sort of disgusting "ironic" humor that seems to pass as thought provoking and soulful these days - Juno trivializes these issues and makes them seem small and insignificant (Juno referring to her situation as "being in a pickle," for instance...), and that shoots this right down the crapper. This is too candyflossed and fluffed up to achieve anything it sets out to do, and so it is a failure.
Title: Re: What's the last movie you saw?
Post by: metal_xxx on May 18, 2008, 05:52:31 pm
Seriously? I liked it...  Probably because I have the kind of ironic humour that is used in the movie. But without the exceptional acting from Ellen Page among others, this movie would certainly be down a couple of notches.

Anyways:

Saw Hot Rod today. Pretty stupid, but fun.

Title: Re: What's the last movie you saw?
Post by: Phoenix on May 19, 2008, 05:07:30 pm
It's tough to decide, but all I can say for sure is that Last Crusade is at least marginally weaker than the two before it. If it weren't an Indy movie, it might be better, but as it is, I found it too jokey and derivative, even for this series. At times I felt like I was just watching the first one again. The climax was lame too.

I like Raiders and Temple a lot, and I'd be hard pressed to choose.

What are you expecting out of this? It follows in the same mold as Fantastic Four's first voyage into moviedom, and it does nothing but satisfy all the way through. The ending is a tad weaker than I would've liked, and the final fight is half-assed, but overall Iron Man provides another strong Marvel superhero movie for the masses. Worthy.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

I saw it last night also, I thought it was OK.

However, it just didn't feel like an Indiana Jones film to me, but that's probably just down to Ford's sagging features and 'old man' stumbles. As for Spielberg's mention of 'not wanting to put in CGI where it's not needed' - bullshit. There's a fair bit of it, and a lot of it pointless (the stupid vole creatures at the beginning, OTT sword fight sequence between 2 moving cars etc?).

With that said, it still held my interest and kept me entertained for 2 hours. Certainly not as bad as some people have said, and I don't see the problem with the storyline (especially seeing as the previous films have covered equally 'out there' topics).

A fairly worthy 3.75 out of 5 from me.

Blade Runner - 4/5

This is not what I thought it'd be at all - that is, a high-speed action sci fi flick with lots of guns and blood and guts - but it is a pretty damn good movie. It is very hard to get into, with a thick, smoggy atmosphere and a dark, gritty visage obscuring the rather sorrowful, bittersweet plot line, but it's worth it. Worthy.

Black Dahlia (2006) - 0.5/5

If you want a perfectly good detective film with riveting suspense, deep, likable characters and a rich, dark sense of mysticism...well, you can look at most other detective films before this one. Black Dahlia embodies just about every old mystery cliche imaginable, dating all the way back to the 20s and 30s, in its wretched, over-emotional palette of idiocy, and it is mostly just painful to watch. It is a misguided movie that tries to do too much at once, and while it is watchable, especially in the beginning, it falls to pieces by the end. A total waste of time.

Watched the new Indiana Jones movie couple days ago.

Probably the worst movie I've seen in a long time. The plot made no sense, the action scenes weren't that great, and the acting wasn't that great either.
The only reason I wouldn't give it a 0/5 is for old times sake, and Harrison Ford is still cool. 1/5

and whats with the giant man eating ants? worst scene I've seen in a movie...ever!

Strange.

Anamorph - 4/5

Weird little abstract/artsy version of Se7en and Zodiac. Willem Dafoe puts on an admirable performance, and the plot is interesting, if a tad derivative and unoriginal. The only real problem here is that the climax feels more like a buildup than an actual climax. Otherwise, a dark, mysterious and overall competent thriller.

Wasn't quite as good as I would have liked it to be, but it was still quite enjoyable.
I would rate it on par with the last Hulk, not better, not worse (but then again, I'm one of the few who enjoyed the 2003 version).

This one had a more direct and to the point storyline but the action sequences in the last one were better I thought.

Jumper - 2.75/5

This is a mess. On one hand it's actually really enjoyable, with some nice scenery and cool action sequences, but on the other hand, we have the fact that it is morally bankrupt, starring a guy who seems to think he's a hero despite having robbed banks, amongst other idiotic qualms. And then we have the ending, which is as lame as they come, a "get ready for the sequel!" ploy that feels like the writers got lazy and just ended it quickly so they could go for another donut break.

I'll be watching the sequel though.

The Butterfly Effect 2 - 3/5

A film almost as bland as its name. This is not a bad movie at all, but it doesn't do much that the first one didn't, and it packs less of an emotional punch than that one did. It's also a lot shorter, too, and it ends right when you're starting to get into it. What the fuck?

All in all, not bad, but you won't miss much if you skip it. Passable.

The Fog (1979) - 4.5/5

Classic, pulpy horror story that doesn't fail to please at all. The special effects are really well done, especially for the time period in which it was made. John Carpenter's genius shines through, and instead of a low budget slasher flick, we're given genius moments like the first kill scene - observe the lack of music making it seem even more cold and distant - and the utilization of the radio host throughout, not to mention the bone-chilling final scene. Jamie Lee Curtis is sexy and mysterious, captivating the eye immediately, and John Houseman and Adrienne Barbeau both put on great performances as well. Sure, at times you can predict what will happen next, but that doesn't tarnish this great movie one bit. Highly recommended.

The Air I Breathe - 4/5

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's another circular human life drama in the vein of Crash? To be fair, this is a good one, much more inspired and interesting than 11:13, for instance. The acting is generally pretty okay, but it honestly isn't one of this movie's stronger points. The strong point of this movie is, however, the strong, fluidity with which the plot is strung together, and the way it's all tied into that Chinese proverb with which the movie is affiliated. Although the uninitiated probably won't get this - the proverb is never explained in the movie itself - the finished product is, overall, a liberating one.

Slipstream - 1/5

What a load of self indulgent, headache inducing crap. Like a retarded Pulp Fiction this movie stumbles and trips its way through inane, disjointed plotlines and characters you don't really know anything about, and I couldn't stand to watch more than 30 minutes of it. Shame, I figured this would be good. Avoid this at all costs.

Tommy Boy - 4/5

A heartwarming and fun "buddy movie" that packs laughs and...more laughs into an hour and a half of fun. It doesn't innovate too much, and it pretty much follows the formula of other movies of its kind (Happy Gilmore, etc.), but that doesn't make it any less great. See it if you're in the mood for something lighthearted.

Big Nothing - 3.5/5

This is kind of like the poor man's Hot Fuzz, in that it is a high octane parody of pretty much any sort of cop/crime thriller. It starts off kind of lame, but it gets really good about a half hour in, and for a while it becomes really hilarious, if a bit contrived. However, it falls apart at the end, becoming mostly incoherent and unfunny, and also trying way too hard - humor does not blossom well when forced down one's throat with all the subtlety of trying to straighten out a kink in the rug by bringing out a steamroller. Too bad.

9.0/10 user rating

I'm not the type of person that usually watches movies becuase of ratings, but for a disney animation I was curious as to why it got such a high rating. Let's just say, this is the first and last time I ever pay attention to anything IMDB says. The movie wasn't absolute shit, but since the ratings were high I set the bar high, but I was quite disappointed.

The movie started off very well and I was thinking to myself wow this movie looks fucking awesome. Empty world destroyed by it's own mess and trash, extremely bleak, all deserted but a single robot cleaing up the mess, block by block. And best part was, there was no script, no talking no nothing, just a robot making robotic sounds. It later digressed into your typical finding nemo disney movie with humans coming in. It had it's funny bits, but Kung Fu Panda had funnier parts. I guess people could have given it high rating because of the message it sent to the world, not sure really.

Little Miss Sunshine - 4.25/5

For a movie called Little Miss Sunshine, this surprised me a lot. I mean, come on, just look at that name. Little Miss Sunshine. It reeks of "prepubescent teen girl flick."

Well, that actually isn't too far off, but when you consider that this is really a quirky, silly family movie that includes the word "fuck" an obscene amount of times, a grandpa that gives his grandson sex advice, and, most colorfully good of all, a scene where a dead body is smuggled out of a hospital, this is pretty damn good. Get it if you want something fun.

Jekyll + Hyde - 4/5

Such modernized tripe should be loathed by me, but I like this one. It isn't the most memorable film ever, but it does pack a nicely dark and creepy backdrop and a well done attempt at recreating a classic for the modern day. It shouldn't be stacked up to the original book, but it is a fine movie on its own, so check it out if you like horror.

Hellboy - 3.5/5

Guillermo Del Toro came a long way from this one to his more recent masterworks. The story is one you have heard before, a beauty and the beast tale with a Nazi villain, a sidekick, an old mentor and the works, but it is done up with a touch of pseudo-Lovecraftian occult type yarning and excellent special effects. Although it is charming and enjoyable, it is not really that great, being a bit too generic to make the cut in 2004. Not to say it isn't good at all, but you can definitely do better in terms of superhero movies and in terms of maiden-saving action movies.

No, it's you that is retarded. The Sum of All Fears reeks of anti-sovietness that plagued Hollywood in the 80's, perpetuated by turncoat jews such as John Milius and such.  Films like that should not be allowed to be made.  As for Affleck, he had an affair with a dirty Bronx spic, so fuck him.

The Three Kings is about a jew (Wahlberg) and a negro (Ice Cube) that want to steal a dictator's gold. Enough said. Oh yeah, and Clooney is a spic too by the way, so motherfuck him.

Post by: Phoenix on August 11, 2008, 01:22:56 am
Everyone said that, I was fine with it. I've never been that sensitive to headaches though. I thought Cloverfield was a realistic and well done portrayal of what a monster attack would be like, right down to the somewhat shallow young adults who serve as our main characters.

Plus it just really kicked ass.

Back to the Future 3 - 5/5

I had my doubts, but the Back to the Future team manages to pull off one last classic. This is the Wild West edition of the BttF series, and it fucking rules, lacking the over the top insanity of the second one, which (while that movie was great as well) makes for a much smoother, better flowing epic of the series' usual mix of comedy, action and science fiction - this time with a stronger dose of romance and even some sorrow mixed in. A bona fide masterpiece, memorable and spirited.

This fucker is excellent.  For those of you that may not know of this film, it is a Belgian film from 1992 in which a documentary crew follows a serial killer around as he kills victims and expounds on life.  It's obviously not real, but a lot of the killings strike me as very realistic.  It's quite disturbing to say the least, but a very original film nonetheless and beautifully executed.  Especially for its budget.  Here is a trailer and a clip to give you all an idea of what this film is about:

You have to go into knowing that what you're watching is intentionally quirky and exaggerated.  The way it was edited kept going back and forth between having a thriller film feel and a comedy film feel.  I don't think its one of their better works or that it will become a classic like The Big Lebowski or No Country for Old Men, but it was worth the time and money that I spent on the ticket.  Don't go into it expecting the greatest film ever, but you should find it pretty entertaining.  Clooney's character builds a contraption that is hilariously crude, but it works with the quirky plot.

That sequel would've been a lot better if John Belushi was still alive. The Blues Brothers should've stayed buried after he OD'd. A band definitely loses something when one of its key members dies-  like the recent attempts to reform Thin Lizzy, the Doors, Queen....

Yeah, he was the main villain of the thing - and a cameo is referring to a role in which the actor has no lines and no main part in the plot.

Get Smart rules, people who don't give it good reviews don't know what they're on about.  :order:

The Happening - 1.5/5

Well, this sucks. M. Night Shyamalan is not a director I've been very familiar with over the years, having only seen his much-lauded and much-overrated The Sixth Sense, but he seems absurdly pretentious and smug. And all I have to say to that is, if this shit is the best he can do these days, then he had better start learning some god damned humility.

The Happening is another one of those fashionable natural disaster movie, only about ten times worse than you'd usually expect. This movie boasts deplorable writing, awful acting, plastic characters that try and fail to get you to care about them, and THE LAMEST DISEASE EVER. I won't spoil it for those of you who have not seen it yet, but this disease and the "plot" constructed around it are absolutely laughable. It seems to be TRYING to build up, but it doesn't work, and mostly this just comes off as a bunch of suspenseful (haha) scenes strung together on a clothesline with no punch line or climax or anything of the sort. Oh, and why do all the fucking characters in this movie have to say "happening" so much? Annoying as Hell. This is basically a shitty 80s B movie with a modern sheen, and that is more horrifying than anything Shyamalan could conjure up in his writing.

Oh, and have I mentioned how delightfully retarded this is? I mean, we have people talking to plants, the main character and his fiancée arguing about their petty problems in the middle of a train station where everyone is trying to escape the virus, and worst of all, the frighteningly dumb jab at the Americans with all of the references to "terrorists." Nice one, Shyamalan. All Americans are like that, indeed. Fuck you all the way to the bank.

So basically, all the viewer can really do, deprived of any visible plot or hook to grab onto, is sit in awe of the puerile dialogue and attempts at characterization, which are so bad they're funny, and I actually found myself laughing at this more than real comedies like Death to Smoochy and Tropic Thunder, which leaves something to be said for those, as well. I'll chuck a few points onto the rating here, as it did make me laugh a few times, but really, The Happening is an awful movie and I would not recommend it.

Visually enticing, but poorly done storywise.  The actors did what they could with what they were given, but the fact of the matter is, Frank Miller is not that good of a director.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Great film, although Brad Pitt didn't really act all that much (compared to say, Tom Hank's brilliance in Forrest Gump).  The themes and concepts raised were interesting, and the overall feel of the film was vry well-done. 

It's very similar to Forrest Gump in several places, but that's expected for a film about someone's entire life and the screenplay for both films was written by the same individual.

I'd say Gump was the better film, but Benjamin Button is unique in many areas, and certainly the first film that struck me in kind of the same way that FG did (and that was 14 years ago).

Lately Turner Movie Classics and Fox Movie Channel have been showing quite a few Marx Brothers movies along with some of the silent comedies (Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton).  If you haven't seen them, they might provide a laugh or two.

Death Race

With Jason Statham and Natalie Martinez (vavavoom! - a bit like Megan Fox, with the Cuban spice added)  It's a "check your brain at the door" kind of movie, but the race scenes are pretty cool at times.

Title: Re: What's the last movie you saw?
Post by: Phoenix on January 19, 2009, 06:19:28 pm
I watched about half of Mirrors before the DVD I had borrowed crapped out on me. The opening was fucking awesome, but the rest of the movie seemed generic. Eh.

High Crimes - 4.5/5

Morgan Freeman rules, and he can carry a movie almost all by himself. Even if the other actors in this movie weren't good (Jim Caviezal and Ashley Judd), I would still enjoy watching High Crimes for Freeman alone. The movie itself is a kick-ass, high paced thriller with lots of twists and turns for your consumption. Similar to other good movies like Basic, High Crimes will not disappoint those looking for a snappy, well written little thriller. The climax leaves a bit to be desired, but otherwise, it's all good.

Dirty Harry - 5/5

Iconic, brilliant and completely bad-ass, Dirty Harry, while kicking off to a slow start, will wow even the most skeptical of viewers with a plethora of interesting characters and nail-biting tension. It also features a completely despicable villain who actually does manage to stay hateable and vile for the entirety of the movie as he escapes star Clint Eastwood again and again, all leading up to the fiery climax, which then leads the movie out in a quiet moment of grandeur. Showing me where several of my current favorite movies got their ideas, Dirty Harry is a classic and definitely one you'll want to watch again and again. Highly recommended.

Title: Re: What's the last movie you saw?
Post by: 4th Horseman on January 31, 2009, 12:47:24 pm
He should, but they have it all wrong.
Ledger should have been nominated for best lead actor. Because that movie was pretty much centred around his character and not Batman's. Joker drove the movie all the way through, Batman was more of the supporting character in the movie who tries to stop the main character. And even when Joker was not on screen, the only thing anyone is really waiting for is when he is coming back.

Yeah, but there is heavy competition in Best Actor this year.  If they'd nominated Heath for that, he probably wouldn't win it.  Best Supporting Actor competition is light, and he's pretty much a cinch to win it.

I'm gonna have to correct you there. There's actually no story-line in an amateur porn flick, there's acting in a professional porn movie, however. In the case of the former, they just get to the action.

Just watched Body of Lies and I have to say, considering it was directed by Ridley Scott, I was a bit disappointed. The image you get from the movie is that everyone in the Middle-East loves explosives, wants to detonate themselves in shopping malls and their #1 objective in life, over everything else, is to kill "infidel" civilians no less, whom they hate with a vengeance.

Yeah, they actually warn you to watch the theatrical version first.  The extras are really new scenes - they just insert naked chicks and guys at random.  In a couple of places they replaced the original scene with a blooper - Lance bursts out laughing while saying his line, and the camera moves to show some of the crew laughing in the back.  Stuff like that.

Akira Kurasawa's The Hidden Fortress

This is the one George Lucas often cites as providing inspiration for Star Wars.  Some of the elements are the same, like sneaking a princess away from a hostile government and a one on one battle between "good" and "evil", and some of the characters are similar.  Not a bad movie, if you don't mind subtitles.

Anyone watch the US version of Eleventh Hour (TV series)? For those that dont, its premise -two FBI agents (guy and gal) and one genius (guy) who is hired by them, investigate bizarre scientific happenings. Similiar to the X-Files, but grounded in actual "reality", using actual scientific themes...but slightly exaggerating them to make it more interesting.

Anyway, in last nights episode, while investigating an Anthrax problem in a school, the music room.....a comment is made by the by one agent that her dad loves music, and she mentions Bon Jovi. A minute later, she tells the genius that there is actually a band called Anthrax. His response is that he prefers Cradle of Filth.

Rare as far as I know, to mention metal bands in any show that has nothing to do with the topic, but even rarer that it was used in such a show.

Wonder how many other shows/movies make references to bands most of us listen to or have heard of that get thrown in when one least expects it.

Californication (with David Duchovny from the X-Files.)  He's a writer and his books are all named after Slayer album titles: God Hates Us All, South of Heaven, etc...  And his wife-then-ex-then-girlfriend-then-ex-then-girlfriend-again often says "Judas Priest" instead of "Jesus Christ" when she's pissed at him.  Their daughter is into Death Metal (looks more like a depressed goth though), although references to Slipknot kind of gayified that somewhat.

Looks really good. I'll try to watch it.

'Sunshine'. It's a sci-fi film. It reminded me of '2001' and 'Silent Running', but this one is more entertaining. The sun is dying and they sent a spaceship (Icarus I) with a huge atomic bomb to kickstart it back. The spaceship dissappears and Icarus II is sent with the same mission, as humanity's last hope. No, it's not 'Armaggedon', it's more serious and dark. The relationships between the crew and their reactions to difficult situations are very important in the film. Highly recommended.

Last movie I saw...guess it was A History of Violence. Not a bad movie, but not really that great either. They had a nice set up, but the beginning put me to sleep, and then they just didn't really do that much with the story. It was fun to watch while it was on, but I don't think I'll be reminiscing on how great this was any time in the future.

I did like Ed Harris in the movie though, always a great actor to watch.

If you liked Pan's Labyrinth or One Thousand andOne Night's (the stories of Sheherezade) this might be a good movie for you.

It's nothing mind blowing but very entertaining.

I also watched Baraka http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103767/ (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103767/)
which is more of a documentary but a spectecular journey. Coincidentally i believe there is a link between the 2.  My father probably got these blue rays from the same website.

Both movies capture some of the most beautiful scenaries ever imagined and the costumes are unique, especially on The Fall.

I liked Underworld. The plot was fairly cohesive, something that surprised me, acting was passable, sfx/action scenes were entertaining. Plus the setting was cool, loved the colors and the frequent rain.

Definitely not a masterpiece but it kept me interested. I'm actually excited about watching the sequel. :)

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Sure, compared to Raiders or Last Crusade (or even Temple of Doom, so some extent), this one doesn't hold up, but cripes that's a pretty high standard it was trying to live up to.  I didn't think it was that bad even though I did say "ok, that couldn't possibly happen" at least a dozen times.  But, since no one ever seems to wonder how Indy survived the trip from the Mediterranean Sea to the north coast of France on the OUTSIDE of a submarine (a journey of at least several days) in Raiders, I guess that shouldn't be an issue.

I've lost 2 hours of my life on other occasions in much less pleasant ways.

Probably because the songs had you falling asleep, but when the movie was focusing on the story, which was most of the time, it was damn fine. It's a Coens brothers movie; maybe sort of an acquired taste or something.

12 Rounds

Pretty good action flick.  Has some elements from both Speed and Die Hard With a Vengeance (although not as good as either one as a whole). 

7/10

I saw No Reservations last night. Good movie, but the relationship between that cook and that little girl goes back and forth too quickly for my taste. One second they're happy, the next they're angry, then they're happy again. Wtf. Also, Aaron Eckhart as an evil villian = awesome, but as a normal guy he's kinda odd. Maybe it's his evil chin.

It was an enjoyable watch, to be honest. When i started watching that movie, I thought it would be a colossal failure like all Tolkien/high fantasy adaptations but as the movie went along, I thought it was pretty interesting.

With the overtime last month, I've been kind of movie-deprived, so I watched two back to back this afternoon:

Largo Winch (the movie, not the series)

Outlander (some guy from outer space crashes on Earth in Norway sometime around 607 A.D.)  Not great but it has its moments.

I just finished watching the entire Star Wars collection, from start to finish (including the new ones.)

My ratings :naughty:

Episode I: Meh. Pretty boring except for the pod-racing scene, which was fucking awesome. However, it does build up the plot for the later movies.
Episode II: VERY BORING. Utter shit, except for building up the plot. Filler episode.
Episode III: By far the best of the newer saga of movies, and this is where the newer movies get connected to the older ones. Very good, and kept m,e entertained throughout.
Episode IV: Extremely impressive for a 70s movie. Great cinematography, even for today's standards. Excellent space battles, and this is where the Star Wars saga stops building the plot, and starts to execute it. Wonderful.
Episode V: Not as good as the previous episode, but great nonetheless. Again, more epic battles.
Episode VI: My personal favorite. Very epic indeed, and the "Luke, I am you father" part still gives me shivers, no matter how cheesy it really is.

There ya go, but I'm positive everybody here has seen these and has their own assumptions. Who hasn't, anyways?

Just got back from Worcester, MA after seeing Anvil:  The Story of Anvil.  Awesome.  Absolutely essential for anyone in a band or who likes heavy metal.  These guys ARE Spinal Tap and yet they continue to press on.  The band came out and played a 45 minute set after the movie was screened and, although they played as a trio making the sound a bit thin, they were great.  Nothing like hearing Metal on Metal followed by an extended encore of Mothra!

Also screened:

Crowley, co-written by Bruce Dickinson.  Awful.

Iron Maiden's Flight 666 - the crowd was getting pretty noisy at this point making it hard to hear so I bolted.  Will just have to Netflix it later.

I actually saw the new Terminator a few days ago and it exceeded my expectations.  I thought it was overall waaay better then Star Trek and just came together much better.  Unlike Star Trek which kind of ended anti-climactic with the hey look im gonna crash my pebble of a ship into your mountian of a ship and kill ya woooooo. LOL it was still good though.

I, too, have always felt that Cruise movies are great and exciting.  He may act strange in real-life, but his movies are pretty much all great.

That's too bad about Valkyrie.  I was looking forward to it.  I love it when all that Nazi shit comes on the History Channel.  The black and white film footage with the british voice over "and this is where Hitler made his first of several mistakes..."

Terminator: Salvation         6/10

T1 and T2 (especially) are my favourite movies of all time, so I was curious, and even a little apprehensive, to see this one.  I was annoyed by a few things, like all the little "homages" to the  first two movies, most of them to the second movie, that were really unnecessary.  I wish the writers and director were more creative and original than pretty much admitting that T2 is the better film (which I agree, of course).  In this case, it detracted from this new movie.  The action scenes were alright, but there was no character development at all, save for one new character, and no significant acting contributions (hardly any acting at all, really) to make this movie stand out in the way that T2 does.
 
Popcorn fun - Some      Lasting contribution to movie history - No    Lasting appeal - Very little

T2 is the best sequel ever. And it ended the saga triumphantly. To keep hashing out these films is an attack on the intelligence of the movie-going public.

That's exactly right.  This movie, as well as the third one, lacked so much of what makes a movie truly great.  You need more than just explosions and fighting.  Terminator: Salvation tried to have something emotional, but definitely failed.  Every character pretty much sucked and lacked any identity.

Its something about the terror of having terrorists having control of the airport/airplanes that made me like it the most.  Plus, it had some neat little twists.

I'd probably have it only slightly better than the first.  But, yeah, all Die Hards are great.

I actually think Die Hard 2 is a very good movie, it's just that I would give the first and third easy 5/5 scores, so it is kind of dwarfed.

I've only seen the fourth one once, when it came out in 2007 in the theatres.  I don't really remember much about it.  I'd have to see it again to comment on it.

I'd probably give Die Hard and Die Hard 2 both 5/5, and Vengeance 4.5/5.  All amazing.  I'd say 2 is one of my favourite action movies of the 90s, along with a select few of other films.

I've had discussions with a lot of people that say 2 sucks with their reason being the first one was so good.  It's refreshing to see others acknowledge that all are good.

I like Zohan way better than Anchorman.  I was chatting with some friends at lunch and they all liked it - one said it's his favourite Sandler movie along with Happy Gilmore.  I noticed it's very much disliked over on the IMDB forums (it's a whinefest in there.)

Anvil: The Story of Anvil.

Fucking excellent.  Both hilarious and depressing.  The only thing I didn't like was that some of the "melodramatic" moments felt a bit like reality TV, but then again there wasn't many ways of presenting that on the screen.  And unlike the Sam Dunn documentaries, the focus is on the subject rather than on the filmmaker.

I thought it was hilarious. I think Ferrell is pretty funny in Wedding Crashers, too. Though I think Anchorman is his best.

I watched Punisher: Warzone the other day. Man, what an awful film. I've loved the comics since I was a kid, and although this was more violent than the first 'new'  movie we had a few years ago, the acting was so bad I actually had to skip ahead to the action sequences.

Equilibrium - 3.5/5

To start off this review, I would like to say that I feel absolutely nothing about this movie.

The basic premise is that of a dystopian society where feeling is prohibited, and it is done reasonably well, but not exceptionally well, at that. The world feels a tad underdeveloped, getting right down to the nitty gritty action scenes from the start. The action scenes are cool, but the real flaw here is that they find EVERY CONSIDERABLE EXCUSE for Bale to be surrounded by like ten guys so that he can dispatch them all easily.

The other thing wrong with this is just that it has the STUPIDEST climax ever; more like an anti-climax really. And if these people can't feel at all, then why do we see them smiling with obvious satisfaction, or shouting with this obvious irritation at something? That's a plothole I think we need to clear up.

So this movie doesn't really go one way or the other, and in the end, I do not feel anything towards it. You might like it more than I did, you might not. You be the judge.

Figured I'd just post a whole review this time.

Saw the new Star Trek, giving in to the overwhelming hype. I guess the fact that I've never been able to sit through a full Star Trek episode before in my life contributed to me not thinking the movie was all that great. It was a pretty decent action flick, but nothing I would try to watch again or even download.

I have yet to meet someone who said the new Terminator is any good so I've been passing on that for a while.

European film making at that time was SO different than the U.S.  It's like watching any of Kurosawa's early movies.  The character portrayals and interplay between them can be a little shocking.

It amazing how it was made in the 80s, yet it predicts what TV, and now the computer, is becoming.

The entire movie is basically a huge metaphor. Its one of those movies you don't get watching it the first and second time, but the third time watching it the movie just dawns on you how brilliant it actually it.

Only 1 and 2 are connected storywise.  They flow together.  The rest (I think 7 others) are standalone features that aren't anything good, but some try to explain more about the Cenobites in a disconnected fashion.  Not really worth seeing.  I've only seen four of these ones, but was not impressed at all.

The second movie is called Hellbound: Hellraiser 2.  You should check it out.  It surpasses the excellent original in every way.

How can you not like Child's Play?  Brad Dourif was great as Chucky/Charles Lee Ray.  He also played a Lee-middle-named-murderer in and early episode of the X-Files, Luther Lee Boggs.

Yeah, it was Deader, I remember that name. It was way better than the shitty ass Nightmare on Elm St sequels and pointless Halloween sequels though, I'll give it that much. That's kind of respectable when you consider how bad other horror series have gotten over the years.

Child's Play was way better than I thought. I saw it years ago and didn't really realize how cool it was.

I went with my girlfriend and my friend and his girlfriend on a double date to go see Twilight when it was in theaters. It was really weird. The men (who were all unquestionably there because of the nagging of their ladies) were all completely silent. The women would giggle, gasp, and even cheer as the men sat silently.

About 60% into the movie there was a blatantly horrible line (worse than the norm) and my friend and I immediately burst into laughter. To my amazement a few seconds later most of the guys in the place started laughing too, and the rest of the scene was drowned out in laughter. Ladies were hitting guys left and right, but it was a wonderful moment. I didn't expect such a moment to come out of watching a pile of shit film.

My girlfriend is a total Disney nut. Just watched Ratatouille with her. I thought it was excellent, actually.  :D

The fact that most of those Disney/Pixar movies are very well done is their saving grace.  We've gotten plenty of mileage out of Cars (no pun intended), A Bug's Life and Finding Nemo, not to mention the classics like Cinderella, Aristocats, etc.

Yes, the original from 1951 with Michael Rennie and Patricia Neal.

A block of wood > Keanu Reeves

Of course, his performance as the goalie in 1986's Youngblood was sublime.  When he says "that man, he is a fucking an-eee-mahl!" in a perfectly delivered, heavily accented english, I totally believe he is a young, francophone hockey player.

Bruno Ganz's performance as Hitler has set the bar for me by which all future portrayals of the asshole will be measured.  If I didn't know any better, I would say that Bruno Ganz's portrayal and the actual Adolf Hitler could be put side by side and I wouldn't be able to tell the difference.  All in all, just a great film and one that I highly recommend.

Hmmm not too sure where you read that, but the music video "one" contains many parts of Johnny Got His Gun. There still could be a possibility that it only came to his attention before the music video, but yea it does seem unlikely.

It may have been when the video came out, something like the director mentioned that the song was based on the movie so why not include it in the video and band said "what movie?"

I was expecting to start watching and not finish it, since I don't really like Will Farrell comedies, but it actually wasn't bad.  Although it also wasn't very good.  Had some funny moments, though most of the jokes were really predictable.

I sort of saw Quarantine.  Didn't watch all of it, I was zapping at times.  I quickly grew tired of the whole unsteady camera style (it worked in Blair Witch, leave it at that), and also there's only so much screaming and rararara by "people infected with a mysterious disease" that I can take.  Good if you like the genre, however.

Same for The Wrestler - zapped here and there, but that's because I can only take so much Mickey Rourke.  I can take a lot of Marisa Tomei, however.  The part when they're reminiscing about the 80s and then start bashing Kurt Cobain and the 90s is fucking great.

OK, improvised "watch two Hannibal Lector movies" day. Although I'm pretty sure I only really watched one movie.

Silence of the Lambs - 4/5

Everyone knows this one; it's a pop culture gem and an icon in the realm of detective/thriller movies. Clarice Starling and Hannibal Lector, an unstoppable pairing and a pleasure to watch - Anthony Hopkins' performance is amazing, and Jodie Foster is always smart, snappy and cute as hell. The movie flows well, wasting no time and generally being solid in every area, albeit not truly astounding in any of them, either. I think the main selling point of this is Hannibal himself, whose psychological musings and mind games make this movie stand out from others of its kind. Recommended if you somehow haven't seen it yet.

Hannibal - 0/5

Okay, who green-lighted this? I mean this is seriously fucking unwatchable, from the lack of any kind of real plot to the stumbling, clumsy pacing to the atrocious ideas - there's just nothing good here at all. I mean, the main villain is a mangled homosexual cripple who will make you want to look at car crash victims as an alternative, and his ingenius plan is to feed Hannibal to a bunch of hungry, rabid hogs. That should be enough for you to skip this stinker by itself, but when you add in a horrible Ray Liotta and a climax that involves watching him stutter through his lines with his brain hanging out, it becomes a certifiable national disaster. This movie is just terrible, and I'd be willing to bet that the director and producer are the ones who really got lobotomized here. Avoid.

I don't think I'm way off.  Others feel the same way, and I really think the movie was awful.  I enjoy AAA titles as well as B titles, but District 9 wasn't B movie fun or AAA movie good, which leaves me with a very annoying movie with good production, but not much else - I wouldn't want to see it again.

I like my power metal to sound like the 1997 style, where most of its generic spawn came out of the wood work. Some of the newer stuff I love, but I think the style is almost losing what made it so special. In a way, it has become too serious.

It isn't a horror movie, it's just straight comedy with some gore in it. It's actually really honest and enjoyable, no pretension at all.

I just didn't think it was all that funny.  I'm not a big fan of Jason Segel really, and I despise Russell Brand.  I think that might have been part of it.  I didn't think it was anywhere near as funny as Role Models or I Love You, Man.  I think I'm in the minority though, since a lot of people seemed to really like it.

It was indeed visually stunning. I wouldn't call it that bad of a movie. It is very long and it drags in some places, but all in all its ok, as long as you don't expect a marvelous script to come along for the ride. It is more like a dumb fun kind of thing. I have seen several movies this year that are much worse.

Roger Ebert gave it like a 3.5 out of 4.

For the record I liked it. Story-wise it was mediocre, and had plot holes, and I guess you could argue that it sucked, but I wouldn't. I went in expecting a grand, wide-scale feast of destruction and that is what I got. Some of the most fun I've had at the cinema in ages.

I was never excited about the cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender, and since M Night Shyamalan is making it, it's pretty much got 0% chance of ever being good. But I do want to see James Cameron's big blue alien movie.

A bit better than we I saw it when it came out in 2002 (I was so disgusted that I didn't go to the movies for three years after seeing it.)  Back then the book (excellent) was still fresh in my memory and I thought the movie was lame (they replaced Arabs by neo-Nazis because of the 9/11 attacks just so they wouldn't offend Arabs - go figure.)  Also Affleck as Jack Ryan just isn't credible (especially after Harrison Ford played the character in so many movies.)

True.  The depth of detail that Clancy gets in to doesn't translate to a 2 hour movie.  I remember reading the book AFTER seeing Red October and thinking "I can't believe how much better this book is.  And I REALLY liked the movie."

The Orphanage (can't remember the original spanish name)

A good horror movie, that doesn't sacrifice plot and charm completely to horror. It wasn't really that scary compared to more popular horror movies, but it was creepy nonetheless, without making you shit your pants and sleep with the light on afterward.

Saw quite alot of movies over these christmas holidays.

Lets start with the best i've seen

Blood and Bone:- remember those Van Damme fighting action movies, well this was that with a modern touch, i loved it.

Law Abiding Citizen:- Good movie, ending kinda was a let down though, acting wasn't all that good especially Foxx

Butterfly on a Wheel aka Shattered:- Well this was a really pleasent surprise, i'd recomend this to anyone, great acting too.

Avatar:- Film was amazing but the plot was way too reminiscent of The Last of the Mohicans and Pocahontasetc......., although i have to say its probably the better version of them all.

Partition:- It was ok, not a wow movie, but rather one which gets you thinking somewhat.... it focused on the independance of Pakistan from India and the hate between Islam and Hindus....

I'll Be There:- This was a fun movie!! warning. its kind of a chick flick but cool in a way and it focuses on an 80's pop/rock star in Scotland among other great characters.

Saw 6:- Wasn't impressed. I loved the first one and how the 3rd and 4th correlated but the last 2 seemed forced and uninteresting.

The Pick Of Destiny:- I loved it, in fact i want to watch it again right now  :super:

The Taking of Pelham 123:- It was ok, but nothing new really, typical action movie

Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever:- Shit movie

Blood: The Last Vampire:- Started out ok, but turned out to be less than average.

My oh my, after such harsh words I feel inclined to watch it again to see whether I missed something. As I saw it a fairly long time ago I'm not in a position to discuss this in a proper fashion. Either way, all I remember was that I really really liked it when I saw it. The storyline is very similar to Avatar, as far as I recall of Princess Mononoke at least. A type of storyline I find very appealing personally.

It might be interesting to hear what you disliked.
Title: Re: What's the last movie you saw?
Post by: Sargon the Terrible on January 06, 2010, 03:09:35 am
I hated that movie with the burning passion of a thousand suns.  It's just a bunch of typical anime bullshit, with the hero trying to help the "spirits of nature" against the "evil technology".  He has the demon-possessed hand, which is never adequately explained and amounts to nothing.  You have the titular Princess who is more of a secondary character, and who does nothing.  You have the central theme of nature versus progress, which you will note is NOT RESOLVED AT ALL in the course of the movie.  Everything is pretty much left exactly the way it was at the beginning, with the story taking no position and giving you the sense that you just say though all that shitty dialogue and hippy-crappy tree-hugger shit for no reason at all.  A terrible movie.

I wish I had seen it in 3D. The storyline wasn't that great, true, but I don't think we're really supposed to dwell on the generic storyline so much as the fantastic visuals and the way the story engages you. I was very surprised how much this movie made me care about what was happening, and how fast it seemed to blur through its 160+ minutes of run time. Really quite a good film. Not a great one, but it came really damn close. I could stare at Pandora at night any day of the week.

I'm just going to say: if you haven't seen it in 3D on an IMAX screen, you have not really seen it, and those of us who did will spend years trying to explain what you missed.  It's a good movie on it's own, but the full experience is overwhelming.

It was shown locally in 3D during the Christmas holidays at only 1 cinema which was fully booked for at least 2 weeks :(

When you described the Priness mononoko movie (which i haven't seen) it kind of reminded me of fern-gully if anyone remebers that cartoon which also has a similar storyline to Avatar.

To tell the truth Avatar's storyline screamed Pocahantos (spelling?) all throughout the movie.

As for more recent movies i've seen, i was really impressed with Invictus, Morgan Freeman portrays Nelson Mandela perfectly. Also Clint Eastwood re-confirmed his role as a tremendous director in my eyes. he knows how to keep you always on the edge.

Hell, I though August Underground was less boring, because at least it was funny, in a sick way.

Finally saw The Hangover. It was funny, as expected.

Yea I just saw it (Paranormal Activity) for the first time and the impression that I got was that the entire movie could have been condensed down to about 20 minutes without detracting much from the parts that actually mattered.

The ending was the worst part to me. Really insulting to the audience. The rest of the movie was just bland and dull, like you said. Not enough punches pulled.

Autopsy - gory shit, not actually bad. Robert Patrick, the T-1000, actually delivers a good performance.

Those who don't like Paranormal Activity usually don't like it because they're looking into it too much. It's a movie that requires a bit of patience and if you're looking for some sort of deep message you're not going to find it. I've also found that people who don't like it also hate movies like the Blair Witch Project. It's just an extremely simple movie that aims to scare.

Nah, nobody's really looking for a deep message. They're just looking for...uh, something good in general.

The Hurt Locker. Fantastic movie; really tolling, but just fantastic all around. Love the characters, love the writing, love the intensity and gravity of the situations they're put in.

I actually think I would've liked it more if I had left for around 15 minutes every time the sun came up in the movie. That way, I would've only been watching during the parts of the movie when something "paranormal" was actually happening.

It was just a rehash of the first one. Another example of a movie being redone, but instead of putting a "spin" on it, its basically a carbon copy. Its a replica of the first one, with better special effects.

Kate Winslet lives just down the road from me, I've spotted her in the local supermarket quite a few times (convincing enough baseball cap and puffa jacket disguise though). Of course, she's single these days too  :p

Clash of the Titans

This was my first 3D experience (since the old red and blue glasses days, of course). Must admit I was sorely underwhelmed, whilst the trailer for a film about bird warriors was rather intense the feature itself sorely left a lot to be desired in the 3D department. It gave me more of a headache than anything.

I would have enjoyed this alot more had I seen it in "2D". I certainly agree with the point hERICtic mentioned earlier.

Well, they said the 3-D was only just added during post-production, so the rendering was really rushed and half-assed. The times I've seen the new 3-D (Beowulf, Avatar, A Christmas Carol, Coraline) it's been fantastic and has added a whole new layer of depth to the movies, but I think that's because the producers knew they wanted the movies to be in 3-D from Day 1.

I can certainly appreciate that.  Like watching Memento more than once.  It is just that "holy shit!" moment at the end is gone in subsequent viewings.

Sixth Sense is boring, but Memento is still pretty good after you know the twist - it just becomes a lot more simple and easy to get after you've seen it once and gotten over the novelty of a backwards movie. The Usual Suspects I've still only seen once all the way through.

2012 - Though it was made up of cheesy and ridiculously unlikely scenes one after the other, I had fun watching it. It did what it wanted to do, of course I'm not going to remember anything of the movie apart from the huge explosions and cataclysmic scenes. The suspense that was kept up through the whole movie kept me hooked, because I allowed it to hook me, without regard for how stupidly unlikely all of it was. I let that part talk when I was done. I wish movies like this had space in their budget for more content than extreeeeeme CGI and SFX.

Oh, and I of course learned that when the world ends, you have to be in a limo with John Cusack driving, you'll live no matter what happens!

Solomon Cane.....

Started out brilliantly, in fact up to the intermission at the cinema i was quite pleased with it for some reason, but the 2nd part was truely a let down. It felt like a different story or like they ran out of money or just wanted to end it as quickly as possible.

A real let down for a movie which could have been epic.  :no:

Shutter Island........ 
 :thumbup:

One of the best movies i've ever seen. Absolutely fantastic story. really plays with your mind and keeps you on edge. One of those movies which i believe will last the test of time. Absolutely brillaint performances too, especially Ben Kingsley.

Who hasn't watched it should really check it out and dont let anyone tell you anything about the movie or read anything about it. Just watch it and enjoy it.

Entertaining enough, though I hardly see what the huge fuss about it was. Is there supposed to be a sequel to it?

After, and during the movie I felt rather empty. Sure, it was quite amusing at times, but I never felt like the story gripped me that much. A decent movie though.

I've been trying to figure out what the fuss was about too. I've read all the books in the series, and there's really nothing objective in the book or movie. A friend of mine said it was because people thought it demonized the church, I still didn't get it.  :roll:

Aliens and Jeepers Creepers

That's so fucking weird. I literally just got finished watching Jeepers Creepers myself. It was pretty good, but I still don't see the brilliance that some people seem to in that one. Namely my ex girlfriend and a buddy of mine.

Great, as usual.

I think Justin Long puts in the best performance I've ever seen him in here. He may be accused of overacting, but I think it makes everything more frightening.

Oh yeah, the characters are very good. That's the thing about horror. Just because it doesn't have to focus entirely on character development, doesn't mean you can just throw in random, disposable faces, hello Halloween 6. Making the characters likable or at least distinguishable and well written enough should always be a priority, or else the movie just doesn't work.

Indeed. The characters in that movie just seem so real (albeit stupid enough to yell at sometimes) that you can't help but feel for them, and I always found those rural horror movies just so creepy and terrifying; agoraphobic yet suffocating. The monster in the movie isn't really as terrifying as the fear of him, and you receive most of the scares from the reactions and acting of the cast. Although it does fall into cliches, I thought it was really good. Nowhere near groundbreaking, but really enjoyable. Too bad the second one was half-past retarded.

Yeah, the sequel was, in the words of the great Ulysses Everett McGill, "dumber than a bag of hammers."

I just thought it got rid of almost everything that I liked from the first, in varying degrees. There's a reason it seems to play every other night on SyFy.

Girlfriend dragged me to Sex And The City 2 the other night. Seemed like a pretty pointless addition to the series and the previous movie. There was just nothing new to say for the characters. Pretty meh. Except for the Middle-Eastern music. That was the highlight.

"Where have you found a baby before?" "Coffee Bean."
"It's not illegal, it's frowned upon, like masturbating on an airplane...thanks a lot, Bin Laden."
"I considered myself a one-man wolf pack."

I have yet to see it, though it'll probably be on pay TV soon enough.

This movie has almost too many one-liners from Alan :lol

I liked it, although oddly enough I didn't really consider it as hysterical as some said. I just thought it was fun to watch.

I watched this two nights ago:

Gayniggers From Outer Space (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0274518/)

It is probably the worst movie ever made, but it's pretty damn hilarious.

You really thought it was a good movie? It has so much potential and just really went nowhere. Ethan Hawk slept through the movie. Ok, granted he usually does. They didnt use the "creatures" often enough. No great fight scenes. A movie better watched on cable than spending any money on it in the theatres or DVD.
