Smokin' Aces (2007)
Easy watching, characters were kinda thrown in and they were hardly memorable, fun though.

last movie you watched?

Reservoir Dogs..... do I have to say anything? tongue.gif

Posted by: andrzej Apr 23 2007, 02:35 AM

in order to make this more of a discussion, i've watched both of those, and while they were good, i felt that their endings were weak


for resevoir it's understandable because it's like a day in the life, and it's not supposed to be glamourous, but still, the ending was disapointing there should have been a bit more "closure" for both



I finaly saw, 2001: A Space Oddesey ...it's end of course is just "f/kd" xD but it's good to see the origin of such movies with a metaphysical perspective

Bright Future [Akarui mirai].
The movie mostly concentrates on Mamoru. [who played Ichi the Killer :3 ] His coworker and friend, Yuji, is a bit off a strange one and has no other friends, he's a bit socially dead. Mamoru has a pet Red Jellyfish that happens to be very poisonous which plays quite a part in the story. Mamoru kills his boss and his wife, after he said his Jellyfish was not poisonous and tried to get the boss to touch it, so something was definitely up. He goes to prison and from there tells Yuji how to look after the Jellyfish, who then states he will wait for him to be released, so Mamoru kills himself so Yuji will continue with his life instead off waiting for him. He however leaves the sign "Go" that only Yuji would understand. All this happens quite early on in the film and then it continues with Mamoru's father coming back on the scene and kind of adopting Yuji. They then start to live their new life, with the influence of the Jellyfish. Quite a strange tale but keeps you watching all the way through.

Dirty Dancing ..I think everyone knows what that one's about, seeing that it's a classic(dunno why, IMO). I never saw it before.. it was the first time I watched it. But I must admit, Patrick Swayze sure can be sexy in some of his movies :3. If you don't know what it's about, it's basically just about this girl who falls in love with a dancing teacher. Simple story.. boring.. but it was the only thing on tv.

The Blair Witch Project

A slightly creepy modern horror movie.. The whole "documentarians get lost in the woods and bad stuff happens" method that this movie uses is a direct rip-off of the notorious Cannibal Holocaust. Left me feeling a little spooked out, and wondering what had happened and what really caused it. Regarding the surprisingly rumours that still exist of the "true story" of this movie - it is infact false and just a completely concocted idea.

Police Story 2

A very good, gritty, and meaner Jackie Chan Hong Kong movie from the 1980's. This is Chan when he was at his prime..

Clint Eastwood was awesome in his younger days. He still is, even though he looks older than dirt.

Since I like older movies so much, I just got done watching The Princess and the Pirate with Bob Hope.

Shooter

Great movie with an excellent script, but somewhat lacking in suspense since they GAVE AWAY THE MAJOR PLOT TWIST IN THE TRAILER. I walked in with pretty low expectations, but despite a lack in suspense, the clever script and the actors sailed it through smoothly. I would have preferred to see Disturbia instead, but I don't regret spending my money on the admission ticket.

Wild Boys
Still loved this film despite it being made when I was born. Great how the children rebel at the end.

Thumbsucker. It's a random Indie movie that's hilarious. I recommend it, if you like twisted humor.

The Fountain

It was weird, and some parts reminded me of that Cirq Du Solei (spl?) crap :/ mixed with a an Asian/Indian/Milasian music video

however, it was fairly interesting and I really liked the string music it had, I even got the OST xD ...although I didn't quite understand a few things in the story :? it was acceptable

Posted by: NervPoison Apr 27 2007, 02:18 PM

Cube

Horror/sci-fi movie with cyberpunk elements. The characters development was appealing, and I liked the fact that they could keep the suspense even though there weren't many deaths spread throughout the movie.

Posted by: BohemianAndy Apr 27 2007, 03:28 PM

Porco Rosso

A Studio Ghibli animation movie. The film is brilliant in how rich and alive the characters are, their colourful life-like personalities, the humorous scenes that are throughout, and the great soundtrack. The story of Porco Rosso is fantastic, and it revolves around Miyazaki's trademark quality of flying in the sky. It leaves a feeling at the end that is quite unlike other Studio Ghibli films, possibly due to the very personal nature of this movie to Hayao. 10/10.

Capote. I thought the movie was very boring.

Great movie! I laughed so hard at so many parts, it is just overall very well done. I liked Shawn of the Dead as well, and the main characters gave equally hilarious performances.

I really want to see that one. It reminds me of House of Flying Daggers (same director I believe)...which is one of my favorite movies. I also love Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon...but that one is so over-stated.

Yay Chinese martial arts films!

So was it any good? (other than visually satisfying?)

Posted by: Michiko Apr 28 2007, 11:57 PM

The movie was absolutely fantastic. I think everyone should see it. It is so colorful and well acted an aahhhhh so lovely! I really enjoyed it.

Samurai X: The Motion Picture

I thought it was quite 'meh'. The sequencing of the scenes and random battles didn't really amount to much, and didn't follow the backdrop story about some corrupt government well. It felt as if it was style over substance. The anime series was much better.

Posted by: silentaura Apr 29 2007, 06:08 AM

Paprika

Despite it has some interesting visuals and some unique ideas, I don't like it. Though the order of the events were being placed disorderedly by director Satoshi Kon on purpose, I wasn't being impressed or thrilled by it. I actually got bored due to its weak story background and the ending.

Number 23

The ending was quite a dissapointment, I'd thought the build up in the early parts of the show was pretty interesting but the resolvement in the end was unexpected but not good enough. A good show but not something I'll rewatch again.

Posted by: Lonedove Apr 30 2007, 05:17 PM

Sunflower
Literally, a melodramatic gangster film. Tae Sikís actor plays a very fleshed out and interesting meek character. It came as a shock to me to see his extensive tattooing.
The film mostly acts like a checklist of the usual gangster film motifs. To be fair, Sunflower does tackle some slightly different ground in comparison to other efforts with virtually identical plots, with Tae Sikís journey being one of repentance rather than redemption. The recurring notebook motif works quite well in this regard, underlining his characterís determination to make amends and fit in with decent society, something which of course is lent a tragic air given that the viewer is constantly aware that his hopes are all too likely to be dashed.

Pan's Labyrinth

I definitely wasn't preparerd for the brutality of the movie. And there I thought it was similar to Narnia and Eragon. but seriously, you can't even compare. Eragon was so-so, Narnia was good but I like Pan's labrinth best even though it gave me shivers. I kept on thinking it was a fairy tale similar to Alice in Wionderland and how wrong was I.

Yep, thats pretty much what Pans Labyrinth is - an adults version of Narnia. I found it amazing, and one of the best fantasy movies I've ever seen.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning

0_0

The most ****ing violent thing I've EVER seen! I reckon even Mr. balls-of-steel Andy would be freaked out by this (unless he's already seen it). Let's just say, given the choice in future, I'll DEFINATELY be riding in the back seat of cars wink.gif

But for criticism's sake, it was certainly interesting to see how Thomas became Leatherface. I always knew he would come around to his habit eventually, but I sorta expected him to kill his first victim with a chainsaw, not a sledgehammer.

For people who don't mind sleeping with a light on, I highly reccomend it. For people like me who can be pant-shittingly scared as easily as a 5y-old who's just seen their first clown, for the love of God stay the hell away from this.

Looks like I'll be sculling caffeine today 'cause it's gonna be hard as hell to get to sleep tonight biggrin.gif

LMFAO! laugh.gif

I'm glad that it scared the shit out of you. That's what horror movies are made for smile.gif

I watched it several months back, and thought that it was quite brutal and unrelenting at times. The only problems I had with it were that the chainsaw kills weren't as good as they could have been. The chainsaw kill in the Dawn of the Dead (2004) remake was absolutely awesome near the end of it, and I found it better than the TCM: The Beginning's chainsaw kills.

As far as selling out also goes, I didn't really like how the script writers opted for a Freudian analysis of how Leatherface came to be a sadistic, murderous cannibal. As I watched the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), I loved the mystery and aura that is Leatherface's past, and to open it up with the new film and show how a little kid abused/neglected etc was quite lame. It just took away all the shocking demeanor and brutality of adult Leatherface, and reduced him to a victim of childhood problems.

The visceral violence in TCM: The Beginning was definitely right up there, but as far as it being a movie goes, there is no satisfaction or pay-off from all the non-stop chainsaw-revving, slicing and dicing. Some scenes felt like it was bordering on a NC-17 rating (banned rating) - quite similar to the remake of The Hills Have Eyes (2006).

Zwartboek || Black Book
Year: 2006 | Genre:Thriller/War
Country:Netherlands/Belgium/UK/Germany

Throughout the whole movie, it was interesting. I liked the storyline and how everything was linked up. The ending was really nice and unexpected. Carice van Houten who played Rachel/Ellis was exceptionally good in her role. This was quite similiar to previous Verhoeven's works, still quite compelling as usual. It is truly a very captivating movie.

--------------

All the King's Men
Year: 2006 | Genre:Drama
Country:USA/Germany

Impressive cast = very boring film. I thought it wouldn't be that bad, but it was tedious, long, the storyline just didn't do it for me, lacked a lot of content. The acting was good, Sean Penn, very fiery indeed like he was popping all his veins.

It was longer than I expected, and it wasn't brilliant, but still quite good. Venom looked cool.

Spiderman 3

It was fine I guess, some parts were entertaining but others were cringe-worthy. Personally, I'm not into comic-turn-movie action show. And I felt that too many things were crammed into this one single story. If they had focused on a few conflicts instead of introducing so many villians, it might have suited my taste better.

Spider-Man 3

I mean yeah, most of the CG stood out like a black eye but the film was lovable, mainly down to the light humour and strong emotional ties involved. I think the most powerfull moment in the whole film was when spidey streched out with one arm for mj while being held back by venom, wow.

Posted by: Lonedove May 7 2007, 06:43 PM

Iím a Cyborg, But Thatís Ok.
A Park Chan-wook film that is very different from anything thing he has ever made. Nothing really much like his dark "Vengeance/Revenge series". It grabbed my attention at the opening with visuals that seemed like technicolor art. And then, held on to it with amazing and unique [not mentally sound. xD] characters. Im Soo Jung really did deserve the award for best actress. A very quirky and entertaining film.

Spirited Away (anime)

Incredible Studio Ghibli film, directed by the legendary Hayao Miyazaki. Its the equivalent of Alice in Wonderland, but as an anime, and much more enthralling. I found myself getting 'lost' into the film as I watched it, which surprised me after. Never has a film managed to get me into it so much that I felt like I was experiencing it as a dream. Disney doesn't have anything that can match up to this. Spirited Away is the most creative and powerful anime feature since Akira.

11/10.

Posted by: Turquoise Reed May 13 2007, 11:31 AM

28 Weeks Later

Ultimately not as good as I was hoping, but still excellent in any case. Cinematography was absolutely top-notch and the atmosphere was undeiable, if a little unsettling. There wasn't much character development aside from Dan (but then again, character development isn't really a neccessity when it comes to zombie horrors).

But the acting was remarkable, and extremely gritty and believable. A little depressing by the end, but nevertheless an unmissable film.

Ikiru
And older movie made somewhere in the 1950s' I understand why Akira Kurosawa is given the title as, "one of the greatest directors to stand behind a camera.Ē I truly do think this has got to be one of the greatest movies ever made. I love the character building of Kanji. When he finds out that he has stomach cancer and less than a year to live, he becomes introspective, searching his soul, and seeking guidance from the people around him kind of person. He realizes that he has been trying to pass time then, live his life to the fullest. The cinematography is really such a beautiful thing. You could easily frame and shot in the movie and display it as a work of art.

Posted by: Swordsman May 15 2007, 03:35 AM

Apocalypse Now

Without a doubt the greatest antiwar film ever made. This is the second time I've seen it and now because I've grown in maturity, the messages in this film have had a much more poignant impact on me. This is a very distressing film, but it is shot so beautifully. Francis Ford Coppola is a creative genius.

I agree. I have very mixed feelings about the film overall. Quite sadly, I was hoping for it to be a vast improvement over Spiderman 3, and I was disappointed in what I got.

It wasn't by any means great, but it was certainly better than POTC 3. And that's really saying something..

POTC 3

I thought it was way better than Spiderman 3. The story was less predictible since everything moved so fast and new characters were being introduced throughout. It was entertaining for me, which was why I paid the money.

Posted by: girlsrgamers2 May 27 2007, 11:22 AM

Outside Providence. I've seen it before, but it's one of my favorite "stoner" movies. And Alec Baldwin is hilarious in it.

Posted by: Jeg May 27 2007, 06:26 PM

I just saw Pirates of the Caribbean 3. The movie was confusing. I didn't like it. I tried to pay attention to the story, but I still couldn't understand what was going on. I say rent it.

Spider-Man 3 is WAY better. At least with this movie I could understand what the fuck was going on.

Posted by: Wolfeyes May 27 2007, 08:48 PM

POTC 3. Meh, wasn't bad, but I really didn't like all the constant backstabbings, what they did to Norington's character (I swear, first he's a noble prick, then a rough drunk, then finally an insecure guy 0_o), or how they ended the whole Calypso/Davie Jones thing, or the fact that Calypso felt like a big let down. I'm kind of happy I watched past the credits since it settled the whole Will/Elizabeth thing.

Hmm the last movie was Lost in Translation.
now I remeber watching this when it first came out and heting all the attention
it was receiving by indie snobs... so i guess I made it my goal to hate it.
and I did.
But now I love it.
I do. I think it's fantastic.

:Hannibal Rising.
I'm such a fan of the original Silence of the Lambs that I was pretty excited to see this. Very disappointing. Though beautifully shot and designed, it does nothing to serve the originals. Unlike Shane Meadows's excellent Dead Man's Shoes, another tale of extreme revenge, Hannibal Rising presents a simplistic, melodramatic tale of linear proportions.

:Letters from Iwo Jima.
Showcases the wealth of acting talent in Asian cinema at present. Fine performances abound and evoke a real sense not just of the nature of war, but of the nature of the men who fight it. And while the beach landing scenes dazzle with their stunning visual effects, it is the moments of both solitude and solidarity in the dankness of the caves, that I thought, were most captivating. It's a fine piece of filmmaking. It shares sentiments with films like The Thin Red Line, and even during CG enhanced battle sequences, it never feels like a "Hollywood blockbuster". That's a good thing, by the way. =D

The Restless // Jungcheon
I saw this a couple of weeks ago...it's left a pretty deep impression on me, it was a very beautiful film in whole. But you must watch it without comparing it to other previous fantasy/martial arts movies otherwise you will find yourself going pffff, it's rubbish.

Kim Tae Hee was pretty, very angelic (pardon the lame pun). Woo-sung Jung with his rough yet good looks complimented his co-star. The movie had a lot of opposites and contrasts which was nice as it brought out the best on what was on screen. Though I don't think the acting was hugely impressive, it was the action and the cg fighting scenes that really were the wow factor, very captivating. The story was confusing at points and the ending was quicker than I'd hoped, I felt some things were left loose.

----
I'm a Cyborg but that's Okay // Saibogujiman kwenchana
Rain is so cool...^0^ he yodels... *dies* His performance was not superb but it was sweet and I think he took on his role very well.
Well the movie was very different to Park Chan Wook's normal style, but there are elements of killing in this movie. It was strange, yet kooky and fun. I guess it was fresh, movie with lots of character and the quite extreme but light-hearted storyline might be off-though Koreans seem to like their mentally challenged characters these days, this film had so interesting crazy characters. ¨_¨" The acting was entertaining and Su-jeong Lim really can portray a cyborg, I loved her scenes talking to the electronics and licking her batteries. In order to like this film, you have to realise it is bizarre and so understanding this film is difficult.

I really want to see this movie since Ken Watanabe is the man. Plus I love historical movies.

Posted by: Lonedove May 30 2007, 04:16 AM

^Thought it was a bit better then Flags of our Fathers. ^^ Watanabe is awesome! There is one scene that leaves me with the deepest impression of him.
I was very surprised with some of the other actors, like the actor that played Lieutenant Ito and Nino were so striking in their performance.

:The Number 23
The narrative moves back and forth from the book, with Carrey playing the dual roles of Sparrow and Fingerling. Schumacher piles on the style for the fingerling scenes, putting
the frames in reds and blacks until they resemble the covers of pulp crime novels.
Unfortunately, the movie should have been the number 2/3 because the wheels start to come off in the third act. By the time it gets around to the, "No man can escape his past" part, Iíd had enough.

Another good movie, it was just that song at the end that ruined the mood for me, since it's kinda "happy" (although lyrically it's not)

It was very good, especially the war torn parts at the end

-From London to Brighton

It was alright, except for the camera at times and the filming since it seemed amateurish, i didn't like the last scene with the guy smoking, but ...i guess it ended alright

Foul, foul movie. The book (which I liked) was the biggest LOTR/Star Wars rip off I've ever read, seen, played or heard of. The movie was so unlike the book it didn't even seem like a rip off. 90% of the acting was absolute crap, and I'm not picky at all when it comes to acting. The only thing worse than the acting was the script.

Casino Royale

Great movie. I had to watch it twice to understand it completely, I can't remember the last time I had to do that. I suppose that's what happens when you watch a movie at 1 AM. laugh.gif

*minor spoiler* They had what was supposed to seem like the end (but which clearly wasn't; Bond hadn't killed the bad guy). Then there was the long ending sequences, THEN the climax. Putting that many long ending sequences BEFORE the climax destroyed the ending in my opinion. *end minor spoilers*

*MAJOR SPOILERS* I still don't understand why Vesper killed herself. She was working for the bad guys, she was betraying Bond the whole time, and she loved him.

Apparently she kills herself because she can't live with her betrayal. I think that's stupid. She was being blackmailed into helping Le Chiffe, so it was against her will, and at the end she was betraying the government much more than she was betraying Bond. She was SAVING Bond.

So she killed herself because she had been forced to "betray" the person she loved? In my mind, that makes no sense.*END MAJOR SPOILERS*

Lock, Stock, and Two smoking barrels.

I love it, the cinematography and the various choices made throughout the film. Definitely on my top list. I still like Snatch better, nothing can beat the ol fashion Mickey the gypsy boxer(Best movie character of all time).

Let's see the last two movies I saw in a Movie Theater was The Invisible and Pirates 3. I loved the Cinemography in the Invisible as well. Didn't get very good reviews but I don't care. It struck something with me.

As for Pirates 3 I loved it. It didn't have to be deep and philosophical, it was just down right entertaining. I loved the Comedy in it, and the camera work was great. This film actually brought out the child in me. I wasn't even prepared for it, but it almost had me tears just for the fact that the makeup and everything was so well done, blah I got a really soft heart for that kind of thing. Anyways, it was like when I first went and saw the Movie Jurrassic Park for the first time when I was a little kid in elementary school. I was so excited because I was going to see Dinosaurs(and I exaggerated it by saying that the Dinosaurs were real hehe!), and it was the best special FX at that time.

I'm big into films and acting

Itís difficult to put into words what's so special about this film without repeating myself about things a reader can't understand without seeing it in action.

Very interesting xD

I watched Dawn of the Dead (2004) first and I love it to death (no pun intended). Its so viscerally atmospheric and gritty, and feels like the perfect zombie apocalypse film. I then watched Dawn of the Dead (1978). I thought I was in for a proper tense thrill ride, as after all, this was made by the revolutionary of zombie films - George A. Romero. It turns out to be an ultra-lame zombie flick, with the worst special effects, action sequences and terrible acting from the main characters. Blue-face paint on zombie's, obviously fake tomato sauce blood, drop-dead boring action, and cliched moaning? No thanks.

I don't see how movie critics can put Dawn of the Dead (1978) on the same level of appreciation as other classic 70's horror movies like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Halloween.

I can see the social commentary that the movie wittily made at the time, but if you're really serious about getting scared or frightened by a zombie horror movie, don't watch Dawn of the Dead (1978). I felt that I was going to fall asleep. The remake is much more suspenseful, atmospheric, gory, well-acted, well-developed, and the zombies actually run - yes...they run. They don't try to attack people by walking at a snail's pace (*yawn*). These differences were what made it much more enjoyable as a horror film.

I wish the Resident Evil films were half as scary as the Dawn of the Dead remake...

Posted by: zeronem Jun 21 2007, 06:37 AM

hehe. Yea I can agree Dawn of the dead(1978) isn't a film for people who want to get scared and frightened.

I liked 1978 Dawn of the Dead simply for it's comic book like approach in the way the film is made, and also for it's social commentary. I just like it for its characteristic of being lame in a funny kind of way.

It's kind of like how Tarantino and Rodriguez got together to make a somewhat modern grindhouse film, given grindhouse films are supposed to be chopped up and stuff. As is Dawn of the Dead(1978) was supposed to have a kind of comic appeal.

As for the remake, I was a little bored with it. One of my favorite things about Dawn of the Dead(1978) is when the characters team together to shut off the mall by blocking off certain passages with trucks and finding a way to lock the mall doors. In the remake as I can remember they didn't have anything like that.

Ultimately the directors intention in the Dawn of the Dead remake was not the same as the directors intention in Dawn of the Dead(1978). In the remake there were some rediculous parts in it as well, but just not as much as in Dawn of the Dead(1978)

hehe The Pie Fight scenes in Dawn of the Dead(1978) are my all time favorite scenes in the film

And I still can't believe I havn't seen Shaun of the Dead yet. I manage to miss watching it everytime it comes on Comedy Central.

Yeah, I understand. The whole approach to making horror films was very different in the 60's and 70's compared to now. That pie scene I admit was good - the highlight of the film for me xD

You should definitely check out Shaun of the Dead. Its really funny, and is the best spoof of how zombie films traditionally run.

Edit: I just watched Casino. Another gangster like movie made my Scorsese that is a masterpiece. Robert De Niro, Sharon Stone, Joe Pesci etc all do a wonderful job. Lots of funny moments, great acting, good storyline, good flow, and depressing scenes. Pretty much what I was expecting from a Scorsese film.

Pretty good action movie, with some engaging concepts and ideas. Tony Scott leaves his trademark technical side in lots of the sequencing.

Flags of Our Fathers

A very poignant and reflective movie by Clint Eastwood, about the story of several soldiers caught up in the media frenzy that surrounds them when they visit home (America). The movie has an interesting account of how the war was financed, and how morale for the troops fighting in Iwo Jima was boosted so much back home, by portraying particular soldiers as heroes.

Now I've just got to see the Japanese perspective of the battle - Letters From Iwo Jima.

Ocean's 13

Good (final?) sequel to the trilogy. The character's really moulded well into their roles, and the lead-up to the casino shindig was engaging. Its amazing how smug Brad Pitt was in all of his scenes. And on that note, just about everyone on Ocean's team was stuck-on-themselves smug. There were some character's which seemed like their role in the film didn't really have any point, so it wasn't clear about their involvement. The movie spends a great deal of its time working out how to infiltrate the casino, which kind of distracts the viewer, as nothing is really going on. Its a decent film, much better than the horrible Ocean's 12, but still not up to the effortlessly great Ocean's 11. Good light entertainment.

^ Hahaha. Well put.

Transformers

I went into this, anticipating a very good movie based on the reviews its been getting. Fortunately for once this year, it was a very good movie. The introduction of the transformers to Earth, characterization, plot, script, and action sequences were all great. There were lots of funny parts, which doesn't hurt the film's main plot and momentum. I had a bad feeling that director Michael Bay (Armageddon etc) was going to overdo everything, but luckily with Steven Spielberg at hand, the movie was a good experience overall.

It releases in America in a few days - you won't regret watching it.

9.5/10

:La Vie en Rose.
Thankyou to the performance of Marion Cotillard! This was undoubtedly will be a career defining moment for the young french actress. It was so pitch-perfect that the impression is no longer of acting, but of channeling. Those who arenít familiar with the life story may think some of the events exaggerated for dramatic effect, but in reality a lot of it is toned down and left out. I'm so impressed. It's almost like the Piaf, the singer's soul, has embedded into it.

Last movie I watched was Master and Commander... I really like it, I've seen it a couple times, and the bravery and strength of the men back then was phenomenal! A doctor who has to operate on himself without anesthetic??? *dies* I love Aristocrats... they were all so glamorous and skilled! And the young commander so much respect if they were of noble blood- it's mind-blowing. Kids these days, no matter whether they were born to the world with a gold spoon in their mouths, are still just ruddy kids tongue.gif

There are plenty of examples that are an exception to that idea. Lots of sequels surpass the original by far.

Spiderman 2 >>> Spiderman
Kill Bill Vol 2 >>> Kill Bill Vol 1
Evil Dead 2 >>> Evil Dead
Terminator 2 >>> Terminator

The Godfather Part 2 could arguably be said to be better than The Godfather Part 1, but I think they are both equally the best films of all time.

Heh, glad you liked it. I went on premiere night on Thursday, and the cinema was quite full. Luckily, the loud dickwad behind us shut his mouth as the movie progressed. At the end of my screening, lots of people stood up and clapped!! ohmy.gif It just shows how good the movie is, and how it made people feel.

The ending to Transformers wasn't cliched and corny as Pirates 3 and Spiderman 3 was. It really brought closure to what happened in the film, and perspective on the looming future. The film does justice to those nostalgic memories of the Transformers cartoon that many of us watched in the 1990's.

A girl at work had not seen the film yet, and I accidentally gave away a slight spoiler to her. She got pretty pissed off. My bad xD

Last movie I watched was A Scanner Darkly, starring Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder and Robert Downey Jr. It was ... interesting. It's like the whole movie was shot, then lamely vectored/cell-shaded =/ and the ending was a COMPLETE let down ;-; I'll never get that hour and a half back.

noooooo!!! don't call him marky mark. That was the past and I heard he really hates that past.

Mark Wahlberg is probably considered one of the great actors of today. I'm pretty sure he was meant to be an actor and the whole singing in a band or group thing was a way of getting noticed like many other up and coming actors did. The thing is, he probably never expected he would end up a serious actor on the A-list.

Here is just a list of some movies that Mark Wahlbergs talent in acting showed off.

1. Boogie Nights
2. I heart Huckabees
3. The Departed
4. Three Kings
5. The Perfect Storm

and some others films with performances I thought he was also good in was

1. Fear
2. Four Brothers
3. Rock Star

Even his brother also turned out to be an excellent actor as appearing as one of the major characters in a Great World War Series shown first on HBO Titled "Band of Brothers". His acting career is not as big as his brother Mark Wahlberg, but I do think he has the ability to make it bigger.

Last movie I watched was Almost Famous again. Oh and as for which Godfather is better. In my opinion it was The Godfather Part II. I liked the Godfather part II because I wanted to learn more about Don Vito Corleones past,, and Robert De Niro was just amazing in it.

this movie never gets old to me. definitely a fav.

i agree. a lot of people hated the second one because it was too "dark" for their liking & didn't follow the book, but i find that peter jackson did a very good job executing the story his way. plus i watched the first one about 100 times after it came out and i eventually got sick of it xD

I wasn't expecting much at all from this film, as loads of people were saying how bad it was. But like all films, it had its good/bad bits. Sometimes I think it tried to hard to be funny and its like 'erm, no'.

I also watched Ghost Rider on Sunday and thought the movie was horrible. The only thing that saved it was how hot Eva Mendes is.

Notes on a Scandal
There is something very comforting about really good acting. It is a relief to sit down to watch a film and to be instantly made aware that one is about to be treated to some first-rate performances. With Cate Blanchett as Dame Judi Dench makes her appearance, the viewers can rest assured that they are in good hands. With Cate Blanchett's arrival, the cake is well and truly iced. As Notes on a Scandal unfolds, we are drawn into a world of shifting standards and uncertain sympathies. The result is a film whose moral ambiguities are at times definitely unsettling, with a message that would be worthy of cryptic. xD

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Just watched it today. I was disappointed as the good parts of the book they missed out. But overall I liked it though I'd wished that the director would not change every HP so there were some consistency.

I love Evanna Lynch, she made such a good Luna, I think she needed to be more loopy and looney like in the book. Evanna is pretty loopy in real life anyways (a major harry potter addict) but she was cool ad she is cool. She had some nice chemistry with Harry. ^0^V Aaaa and Ron he was amazing as usual. I like the actress who played Tonks. Umbridge was evil, she had the eerie, freaky demented feel to her. Bellatrix Lestrange was mad, but not mad with the style presumed in the book. o_o" if you get what I mean. Oh and they left out Ginny a lot, she was like an outsider in the movie. I guess in the next one, she'll have more.

The movie was quite ambiguous.

Posted by: Rubber Ducky Jul 14 2007, 10:51 PM

Die Hard 2

Kickarse action movie from the early 90's, which defined a generation of Hollywood action films with plenty of memorable action, vulgarity, and entertainment.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Pretty good sequel to the Harry Potter franchise. The time travel aspect created a few plot holes, but on the whole, this is the best so far (I haven't seen the new one yet).

Gone in 60 Seconds (1999)

About a team of car-boosters who have to steal plenty of cars within such a short time frame in order to save a guy. I like it because of the passion of cars all round shown in the movie, the car chases, and script/action cheesiness thrown in. Good remake.

Cute but likely to be only a one-time see movie for most. I'd probably watch it again if a friend or family member wanted to see it. The characters are fun and there's more than a handful of moments that the audience can relate to (at least married ones).

^ The film gets a mixed reaction from me. It felt like a half-accurate representation of how things were back then for Edie Sedgwick, and the Warhol Factory. Guy Pierce did an amazing job as the eccentric Andy Warhol, but Hayden Christensen did a pretty mediocre role as Bob Dylan. Bob Dylan got quite pissed off at how he was portrayed, and threatened to sue the production of the movie. Sienna Miller is beautiful, and looked very much like Edie Sedgwick did in real life.

Edie's spiralling life into oblivion was quite sad to watch, but thats the common path due to drugs and little control. The film was quite superficial in that it only showed little aspects of the famous people that it portray's.

Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn

You know, you're absolutely right.
Guy Pierce as Andy was flawless, one might even say frightingly so. And Hayden I feel just tried too hard, or you could just tell it was forced.
And it was a little scary how much Sienna did look like Eide. FREAKY!!
She did a great job acting the part too, I thought all her parts were very convincing from the highs to the lows. I enjoyed her naration of her story too, it wasn't so blah.
I think I might like it a little more after thinking about it.

I thought the original was definatly better. But I should have known they wouldn't have ha any of the 12 year olds drinking and smoking.

Eragon..

It was boring to me. Didnt go anywhere.
Seemed like a rip-off of many fantasy films like LOTR.
Eragon was annoying too. and the dragons voice was crap

Posted by: joesmith123 Jul 19 2007, 08:31 PM

^It was garbage because the book that it was based on was written by a teenager who did borrow a lot of themes from other fantasy stories.

Back to the Future II. Great movie that was part of the greatest trilogy ever until LoTR.

Apocalypto


I thought this was an amazing movie. A little gory, but hey, it's Mel Gibson. And if you've seen Passion of the Christ you know he's not afraid to do gory. It's also extremely sad.

Posted by: BohemianAndy Jul 20 2007, 05:40 AM

^ That movie is awesome. The cinematography is just amazing. The depiction of the Mayan civilization was quite accurate, despite some minor errors. It would have been awesome if Mel Gibson included at least something about the Mayan's achievements in mathematics and astronomy. The vast majority of "unknowns" that Gibson hired to act in their roles were superb. Rudy Youngblood, the main character, has lots of talent. What I liked greatly about the movie, is its relevance to society today. Civilizations haven't changed much, with regard to violence, political corruption, and environmental problems.

Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

Very corny and cliched dialogue and scenes, but I liked it due to the cars and the drift-racing on mountain's in Japan, and on the street. I think the girl was also the lead model for the game, Need For Speed: Underground 2.

Posted by: Dark Yuna Jul 20 2007, 06:53 PM

^ I didn't think it was very good either. The drift up the spiral in the car park bit was awesome though.

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure

I thought it was great. Cheesy jokes rule biggrin.gif

EXCELLENT!

^^ I've decided that anyone who goes to the theater throughs down there $8 and says, "One for Fast and the Furious please," shouldn't be aloud to vote. We don't need your opinion in government. The same goes for any Vin Diesel movie.



I finally saw Order of the Phoenix it was alright so long as you don't compare it to the book.

I watched 'the squid and the whale' last night !

Starring Jeff daniels. Was pretty damn good. I watched it for the acting rather than the whole film. but not only was i impressed with the acting but also the [whole film]. Good watch.

Just saw Little Miss Sunshine
and it was really cute and funny!
Especially the part with the van and the horn.. ahahahhahah!
I think everybody did a great job acting their parts, very convincing.
the Uncle was the best so was the son, although his situation was very sad.

the soundtrack was pretty damn good, it was nice hearing devotchka at the end.

I give it a 9/10.

The Shawshank Redemption

Simply put, one of the best films I've ever seen. The story about a banker (Tim Robbins) falsely prosecuted for the murder of his wife. He ends up in prison with lots of other inmates, and forms a strong friendship with Morgan Freeman. The hardships, moments of quiet reflection, uncertainty, and corruption in prison were all touched upon. Ultimately, its about prisoner's finding redemption by committing themselves to making acts of decency and maintaining integrity. The acting is brilliant, the soundtrack is perfect, and the script is perfectly suited. Morgan Freeman is my favourite actor out of this, mainly due to his presence, and the calming/soothing effect of his narration.

Its a nostalgic and beautiful film, and its calibre is certainly amongst such films like The Godfather and Schindler's List. Films like this don't come around very often.

Ellektra

Had its emotional moments, excellent visuals and a pretty good storyline but the ending was a bit too happy compared to the rest of the movie. Oh, and some actors need to look up the word "overacting".

The 3rd Harry Potter movie.

Tonight I'm going to watch the 4th one and sometime next week or so I'll watch the last one.

Transformers

This film was OK, but some bits dragged on far too long IMO. The special effects were good though, but like I said, no need for the film to be as long as it was.

3-iron (빈집)
year-2004
cast-Jae Hee, Lee Seung-yeon

I love this movie. Kim ki-duk is one of my most respected directors.
3-iron is an interesting movie, the use of silence makes it unique and capitivating. The story is truely unique but nothing really groundbreaking happened yet it was so intriguing and well shot. The characters and the chemistry between the two main characters, Sun-hwa and Tae-suk was really special and I as the audience felt the warmth and connection through their actions and emotions. The message at the end summed up the movie, simply and perfectly. 3-iron is very philosophical and artistic film (involving golfing xD).

" Mozart and the Whale "

It was pretty good. Very good acting and told a very nice story. Despite the characters having autism they were very witty and the movie had subtle humor that I love.

Posted by: silentaura Jul 23 2007, 05:51 AM

Tales From Earthsea
I was throughly disappointed by this film because I was overly anticipated before seeing it. The plot, character, and music. All were below average in my book. Miyazaki really ought to take another approach with fantasy adventure films. It needs to be darker. Not somewhere between.

Posted by: Lonedove Jul 23 2007, 06:13 AM

^ I've been waiting eagerly to watch it. 8DD

:Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
It felt like a very broad movie. The irish girl that played Luna lovegood, for an untrained actress she delivers a remarkably good turn. How old is she? Like fourteen or fifteen? And the guy that plays Harry is around seventeen-ish. lol, It was funny to watch her outdo Harry's acting.

A Bug's Life

One of my favourites from my childhood. I loved every minute of it.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

It was good, but the only real action is at the end. Luna and Bellatrix were played perfectly.

You do know the movie was done by the original director's son right? Hayao Miyazaki's films are amazing, but the movie was a first work done by Goro Miyazaki. I was hoping the movie has the same potential as all the previous Studio Ghibli films. But after I watched Tales From Earthsea, it's highly doubtful.

It had it's moments, but ultimately an underwhelming film adaption. Sorta dissapointing.

I enjoyed it. Pretty funny.
It was pretty average here and there.
Could of had more plot, but I still liked it.

Posted by: Marblefist Jul 28 2007, 01:11 PM

The Simpsons Movie

Largely satisfying and largely humurous. It was great enough to garner applause from the audience. The only low point for me was the whole Lisa-Irish boy thing, other than that hardly any minute was wasted. Quality.

The Godfather Part 1 + 2 = Best films ever.

--------------

Cannibal Holocaust

I was in a mood last night where I wanted to be shocked and awed. And I got what I wanted. Realistic gore, unrelenting terror, sadism at its most potent in cinema, and images left in my mind that keep me freaked out.

The film got banned in over 30 countries upon its release in 1980, and the director was taken to court after the films release because the violence in the film was so realistic the deaths of actors in the film seemed real. Fortunately enough, it was just brilliant special effects. Cannibal Holocaust pushes the limits and boundaries of what is generally acceptable violence in mainstream cinema. I personally think its potency to shock is similar to the other notorious 1980's Japanese pseudo-snuff film, Guinea Pig: Flower of Flesh and Blood.

Its a film that certainly isn't for everyone, and precaution should be taken if you contemplate watching it anytime. Animal's are harmed quite brutally in the film, and I found it hard to watch at those moments without looking away. Its best that if you do want to watch it, you should be at least 18, and have little nervous predisposition to ultra-violence.

Casino Royale




Really had my heart pounding during some parts. I thought the whole bit between Bond and Vespa was rushed--especially towards the peak of their "relationship." It just seemed like there was not enough time to build up the story between them to make what happened actually believable.

Overall, I really enjoyed it. Really saved my sour spirits about Die Another Day--that was just an awful film.

Posted by: joesmith123 Jul 29 2007, 05:35 PM

300

I thought the movie was very average and no where near as good as Sin City. Hopefully sometime in the future someone will make a movie about Thermopalye that's more historical.

Although, I did enjoy watching it and seeing why the Iranians weren't too happy with this film.

and I loved it, I know it's hard to believe at times (a lot of times)
but that's why it's a movie right?
I loved the action, the comedy, and Justin Long.
Plus I'm a sucker for hacker movies.
I give it a 8 out of ten.

Yeah, I was just hoping that maybe since they share genes that some of Hayao's amazing story telling skills would be shown. I watched it and something about the characters that killed it. I loved how Hayao always made enjoyable characters. Good or bad. The animation seemed dull and out of date too. I can definably say it was decent. Maybe in the future he can strive to improve and possibly live up to his father.

Dororo
2007 Japan
Satoshi Tsumabuki- Hyakkimaru
Kou Shibasaki- Dororo

It received a pretty poor rating on imdb. But I found it entertaining and very different, and bloody yet gross. xD The storyline was sure bizarre and I think that's why I like it, the bizarrity. The actors were good, Satoshi has a rough yet handsome look and Shibasaki compliments him well with her girly roughness and pretty looks. The chemistry was nice and the scenery was pretty nice and traditional, NZ is so untouched! The fight scenes were awesome and I suppose close to the Dororo manga? (`x`)

Posted by: Binibini Jul 31 2007, 08:01 PM

The new Die Hard and Harry Potter.

Both were enjoyable but aren't movies I'd likely watch again---maybe in a year or so---when I've forgotten what's happened. XP Overall not bad tho, I didn't demand a refund or anything of that sort.

I agree with you on the most part. Though I think the animation are fine. It is just the event sequencing and the depth of the characters that had me ranting... After all these months of waiting.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

I thought it was...well, OK. Nothing special really. I heard that this was the best HP movie so far, but I don't think so. +1 for Luna Lovegood though laugh.gif

I hope that Half-Blood Prince will be a lot better, I really enjoyed that book. I bet they will miss out half of it again though.

The Aviator

Quite a slow-moving, but amazing Scorsese film about aviation revolutionary, Howard Hughes, and his life towards becoming a successful entrepeneur. The beautiful women he had by his side (eg. Katherine Hepburn), court proceedings regarding his waste of government loans, and creative business intuition that drove his moves, were all shown. The film also documents his bouts of obsessive-compulsive disorder, bringing about what he had to endure during much of his eventful life. Similar to many art-house films, this movie requires a patient, thinking and attentive audience to get the most out of it.

----

Catch Me If You Can

Another film starring Leonardo DiCaprio, this time portraying the real-life fraudster Frank Abagnale Jr. After witnessing his parents traumatic breakup, Frank embarks on a long and elusive run around the world, creating false bank cheques to cover his financial pursuits. He manages to fool lots of people into believing he is a pilot, lawyer, and doctor... all before he is over 20 years old. Tom Hanks leads the FBI team trying to catch him. Pretty fun Spielberg film.

No Direction Home: Bob Dylan - Part One

Incredibly insightful movie of Bob Dylan's climb up to being one of music's most influential artist's. A social conscious that tapped into the mass collective unconscious of America in the 1960's and 1970's, he became a musician that could relate to anyone of backgrounds - bohemians, poor, suburbia etc. I liked how Martin Scorsese sequenced what Bob Dylan was experiencing on-stage and off-stage, with retrospective interviews of Bob Dylan's old pal's and contemporary musicians of his time. His prolific song-writing of his early days is inspirational at the very least, and his inquisitive nature of other musician's and poet's shows the viewer that every artist needs to feed off another's messages and style in order to progress.

Archival footage of Bob Dylan playing "protest" music in America's south during some folk festival's in the 1960's really engaged me and gave me goosebumps. Its strange to look back onto what was happening during America's civil rights movement, and see how one man channelled so much of that through music, and so beautifully. He really was the voice of a generation.
