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?
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
I have the bootleg DVD.
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.
^Andy I saw that one a few days ago and I love it... damn its very creativ how they made the movie seeme real..
anyways last movie I watched: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
Clit Eastwood is the man
I watched Battle Royal last.
I love it - so many different deaths (including a vicious knife attack in the pelvic region for one unfortunate guy). Kiriyama rules
^Very good movie, and so is The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
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..
Shaolin Iron Claws.
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.
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.
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.
I just watched A night at the Mueseum.
I loved it
The night before we watched Mutant Pigs...that was a weird and fucked up movie...cartoon...thing..LOL
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
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.
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.
300 amazing film
The Talented Mr. Ripley
The Curse of the Golden Flower
I've never seen such a beautiful film asesthetically. Gong Li was to die for.
Strange idea for a film, but has good elements. (Like the Karate Kid vs Steve Vai in a guitar duel )
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.
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.
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.
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.
Mindhunters: first 30 minutes were good, rest of the film got progressively worse.
It feels like this movie is going to take a while to warm up to me, but overall, it was alright.
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.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning
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
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
little miss sunshine
very cute movie. has some good dark humor and the acting was done extremely well. loved it when the grandpa started off on the teenager about getting laid..classic stuff xD
Spiderman 3. Some parts were very cool, but imo, it wasn't as good as the 2nd one.
Zwartboek || Black Book
Year: 2006 | Genre:Thriller/War
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
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.
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.
Elizabeth I: The Virgin Queen (part one)
This is actually a two part PBS "series." The acting is quite good although it reminds me HEAVILY of the HBO Elizabeth show...seems to follow the exact same pattern.
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.
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.
Memoirs Of A Geisha
It was decent, but not as good as I was hoping it'd be.
I have determined that Venom is the coolest super villain ever.
Borat: Cultural Learnings of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan
One of my favourite, kick-ass films. Laser grid = lovely.
I just watched Spiderman 3. The movie was awesome!
The best movie I seen this year.
Spiderman 3 in theatres, and The Painted Veil on DVD. The latter is such a sad movie. Not sappy, but sad. Spiderman 3...eh. Better than 2, but still not as good as 1.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Mans Chest on DVD.
I have never seen it before, and needed to watch it before At Worlds End is released in Cinema's in a couple weeks time.
It was a decent film, but I'm not sure whether I prefer it to the the first film.
we watched Equilibrium (sp?)
It was good...like matrix, kung-fu, stuff...LOL
28 Weeks Later
WOW. This film was really amazing, you could say one scene was slightly too much (eye-ball wife part) but I bloody loved it. An amazing British film.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning
Absolutely awful movie that revels in human ugliness. I don't know why I saw this again...
Down Periscope. HA!
spider man 3 on my pc.....yeah i use warez!
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.
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.
the league of extraordinary gentlemen..mmm sexy movie
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.
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.
House of Flying Daggers
The last film I watched was The Last King of Scotland on DVD.
It was quite a disturbing film...all about Idi Amin, ex-president [now deceased, thankfully] of Uganda.
It was an interesting film to watch though.
Old 80's flic, its ok i guess, not great, lol
What a sad movie. I ALWAYS cry at the end.
"... In the early days of World War 3, guerillas - mostly children - placed the names of their lost upon this rock. They fought here alone and gave up their lives, so that this nation should not perish from the earth."
So fucking sad...
Some crazy anime movie about a guy who becomes more powerfull than god and ends up destorying everything until its only him as a entity of light. I gotta say it was appocolypically messed up!
Deja Vu. It was a decent movie, but it had a great cast.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Some of the special effects are cool. The Horntail looks great.
It was a pretty decent film actually, starring Anthony Hopkins of Hannibal fame.
...he played a good part in this film. Psychotic, as per usual
^ I wanna see that. Shame I can't though.
The last movie I watched was embarassing...
I was babysitting for my neighbours, and their son LOVES Pokemon. So I brought it round and we watched it. It brought back some good memories.
Lady In The Water
- should have been longer ...kinda flat
- alright too
The Last King of Scotland. It was a decent movie, and not at all like how I expected it to be.
Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan
"Borat: You telling me the man who try to put a rubber fist in my anus was a homosexual? "
(for the four hundreth time )
The night listener...So trippy, ahh robin williams <3
It's funny in that Shrek way. Shrek 1 is still the best, IMO. It has it's good points...and it's HILARIOUS points.
The Craft. It was on last night and i just had to watch it. witchiness rules.
Love this film. Christian Bale gives off an amazing performance.
Choices. The Three 6 Mafia movie
@inhert - i didnt know he was in that, i love him. i'll keep an eye out for it now. mm.
i watched a movie called darkroom. it has that policeman who can read minds in it from heros. it was well sweet.
POTC3 was pretty shit to be honest. Incredibly cliche at times.
hot fuzz!...it was hot!
...spiderman three was allright actually.
Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels
i srsly love this film, Guy Ritchie at his best ever.
POTC: At Worlds End
Not sure what to make of it, really.
mmm not as good as i expected, i was kinda sleepy and it was really late....
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.
Outside Providence. I've seen it before, but it's one of my favorite "stoner" movies. And Alec Baldwin is hilarious in it.
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.
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.
funny how that worked out. meh
oh and is it bad that I haven't seen any of the POTC movies?
or spiderman for that fact...
i really loved that movie, i thought it was awesome and pretty funny ...and basically just very well done
...but it's not for everybody
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.
The Wedding Crashers
Pretty funny film. Some good jokes in it.
Alpha Dog: It was a pretty good movie that surprised me at the end to find out that it was actually a true story.
^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.
The Constant Gardener
Yeah, I liked it. A movie where you had to think things out. That's good. Ralph Fiennes is a great actor too.
It was quite good, I think.
Although the bit with Jack Sparrow and all his Jack Sparrow crew dragged on for ages.
And those crab things? LOL.
It was pretty long too, the cinema had a 10 minute interval halfway through.
It was a pretty good movie, and I liked it
-Children of Men
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
Jet Li's Fearless
I thought it was good. Nice story. Though I want to know what happened to the blind girl. Love the nun-chuck bit xD
Ant Bully...it was cute
Yeah, I don't watch many movies. This was a good one
Amazing movie. My sis bought it home for a French History assignment and I ended up sitting through it. Very touching and awe-inspiring.
Oceans 11, slickly done and pretty enjoyable. Figured i watch the first and second films before oceans 13.
It was a quite spectacular and enjoyable movie, but like it has been mentioned before I wasn't convinced of how some things ended
My friend invited me to go see that today
but I've only heard how bad it is, so I said no.
And plus I haven't seen the first two, so I figured I would just be
lost the whole time.
I will see apacalypto tonight tho.
Um POTC 3. It was kinda crappy considering I didnt wait till the theater cleared out and you see the ending clip with will and elizabeth. But whatever it was still a major waste of time.
Apocalypto. It was a decent movie.
^ That movie had beautiful cinematography.
It's quite a good sequel. Unfortunately, reviews for Shrek 3 have been below average to average mostly, so I don't think I'll see it.
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.
Casion Royale tonight! I'm excited. Yeah, it took me ages to get around to watching it. >__<
Spiderman 3 & Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
28 Days Later
Dissapointing. That's all I can say. I mean, in theory it was an excellent movie with startling themes and brilliant cinematography, but after being spoilt by the amazing 28 Weeks Later, I can't help but feel how lifeless this installment is in comparison.
Shrek 2 on tv.
Not the gumdrop button!!
Italian Job remake.
Over the weekend I saw Waitress and Knocked Up.
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.
*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*
True Romance. One of my favorite movies, awesome cast.
I started watching Resident Evil: Apocalypse last night, it was terrible, had to turn it off half-way through.
The Brothers Grimm
Saw that crappy movie too.
Why would you even watch that in the first place? :-X
The makers were obviously scraping out the barrel of ideas with this one. It was so incredibly random and lacked the charm of the first two films. There were some memorable moments, but not enough.
cause everyone has different movie tastess duh
Ocean's 11 (remake)
Very slick and sophisticated remake, which has a good balance of charm, action, dialogue, story, and characterization to make a good movie.
De Ja Vu
It was quite good.
VERY confusing, what with the traveling back through time and everything.
But it all made sense at the end.
Man Bites Dog
Yep, us Belgians are sick. Still, it was different and very interesting, albeit in a disturbing manner.
I love this movie, and the book was even better. This is the 2nd time I've seen it. Great cast, moving story, I have nothing but great things to say about this flick.
i wanted to see it again...besides i was kinda bored and didnt want to move >_<
Perfume: The Story of a Murderer.
A huge mess of a film that may have some critics applauding its supposed courage and depth, and ability to aptly portray a complicated book, but will leave most audiences cold and dissatisfied. The only positive thing in the movie had to be Dustin Hoffman's acting.
Dead Poets' Society
So damn good!
Pretty slow at times, and very strange. Fair amount of blood, too.
last movie I saw was
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
Letters from Iwo Jima.
Excellent film showing things from Japanese perspective. Plus, Ken Watanabe is the man.
Only the greatest movie of all time.
Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring!
Hell yeah, baby.
Great movie, I don't care how many Disney movies he does, Cuba Gooding Jr. rules. And I'm going to marry Judy Reyes.
One of the best comedy movies I've ever seen. It managed to be hilarious throughout the entire movie, while still being smart and retain an excellent story. It was just very well done altogether. I'd recommend it to anyone.
Lol, this was a funny movie at times, though it was a little dark in humour. Still, I'd watch it again.
Platoon. It's one of my favorite Vietnam War movies, with a great cast.
Self-explanatory, the rise and the fall of Tony Montana.
Documentary with footage from the Monterey Pop Festival with Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin (with Big Brother and the Holding Company), The Who, Eric Burdon and the Animals, Jefferson Airplane, The Mamas and the Papas, The Grateful Dead, Otis Redding, and many more. If you are a fan of 60s rock, especially acid rock, I highly recommend this. Great stuff.
@BA, I love all "rock"umentaries, so I'll definitely check out DiG!, and I think you would love Monterey Pop.
The last movie I watched must`ve been Hellraiser 4. Actually quite cool. Watch it
A classic. Perfect 10 of 10.
Last movies I watched:
Serenity - Very good action movie, with some good fightscenes, good plot and some good humour.
Kung Fu Hustle - Brilliant parody of common martial art movies, very funny. Watch if possible.
Last movie I watched was Knocked Up. One of the funniest movies I've seen to date.
The last movie that I watched was Serenity. It was an average sci-fi movie.
Also, I saw Dawn of the Dead again a couple of nights ago. This is a great apocalypse/horror film.
hehe, I bought and watched the 1978 Dawn of the dead movie. It's the best.
I absolutely hated the Dawn of the Dead Remake unfortunately. Really, I don't think it can be classified as a remake because it is so much different than the 1978 Dawn of the dead.
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.
I saw V for Vendetta a few days ago.
It's probably my favorite movie ever. (and I say probably because my fave movie changes on a weekly basis.) I've seen it several times, and I still love it.
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Trip down nostalgia lane
Kill Bill vol 1
OMG, hilarious! xD
"My name is a Borat!"
Borat. rofl. Laughed my way through it.
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.
it was great. it looks all soppy and shit, but its actually really good. jude law is yummy as always, and nicole kidman's performance is great. as well as the one who plays briget jones.
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.
28 Days Later
It was on Channel 4 last night, and I thought it was pretty good. Bit of a slow start, but once things got rolling, it was all good
Some pretty funny moments too Although after I finished watching it, I was all tired and jumpy walking up the stairs to my room
Shaun of the Dead
Truly classy and clever. In a word: hilarious.
Horrible, just horrible
- Toby McGuire blows
- Plot BLoWs/ Storyline BLOS
- Villains blow
totaly raped the comics *sigh*
^ Hahaha. Well put.
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.
: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
I watched Fantastic 4 the Silver Surfer thing. I was okay. You know what they always say : sequels are never as good as the originals.
^Also, BAndy there's LOTR: Two Towers which I thought was better than the first movie and the second X-Men film which I felt was far better than the first. I'm sure there's more I just can't think of any others right now.
I watched Hamburg Cell which was a movie about the 9/11 highjackers, how they met and how they went about planning and executing their terrorist attack.
Really good. I went with this girl and she thought she would hate it but she loved it. Was really good. I love the jokes. The action was great too.
Really well done =D
Only problem was the cinema was FULL! And the people in front of us wouldn't shut up. He was like " As if that would happen!" None of it would happen. ITS FANTASY YOU IDIOT!
I really didn't thinnk I'd enjoy this film as much as I did, but I loved it! The action scenes were great, and there were some great comedic moments like josh said. Mind you, the first thing I did when I got back was check the CD player.
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.
The Great Raid. It's a decent WWII movie starring the guy who plays Harry Osborne in Spiderman.
Don't Be A Menace To South Central While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood
(yes, that's the title)
I don't normally like movies by the Wayans Bros., but I have to admit, this one made me laugh.
Men Behind The Sun !
Banned in the Uk and most other countries. Truly awesome but just oh so Violent. So so Violent. It satisfied my needs
LEO! WE LUV YOO!
I just saw Shooter with my boyfriend.
I didn't want to but he insisted it was very good and interesting.
So I hesitantly watched, and was very surprised at how good it was.
It stars Marky Mark (more commenly known as Mark Wahlberg)
and it's about this expert snipper who is hired by the government to
plan the killing .... wait no, just watch the movie!
I give it a 9.5/10
It kept me interested thourhgout the whole movie.
and Marky does a great job.
lord of the rings: the two towers
"where is the horse and the rider? where is the horn that was blowing? they have passed like rain on the mountain, like wind in the meadow. the days have gone down in the west behind the hills into shadow.
...how did it come to this?"
this movie never gets old to me. definitely a fav.
-The History Boys
Saw Transformers a couple of days ago.
Just saw Letters From Iwo Jima. It was a great movie, but so sad and depressing... I probably sound like a hippie saying this, but it makes me wish war never existed...
Harry potter and the chamber of secert
Still wattching it but seen many times...
I HATE THE SPIDERS
^ I'm currently watching that too. And yep, the spiders in it reminded me of my dislike for them.
I watched children of men AGAIN !
I just cannot get enough of it. if you havent seen it yet, please go watch it.
X-Men 3 - 5/10
frankly, most of the film was crap. famke was easily the best actor though & i just loved everything about her dark side. probably wont watch it again.
I really liked it. The graphics were pretty good especially Optimus Prime. It had a lot of action. Normally robots fighting doesnt appeal to me but I liked this movie it had funny parts also.
Watched it on DVD, a bit late I know.
I thought the film was going to be really bad, because people who seen it in the cinema were like 'ahh, it's rubbish' etc.
But I actually really enjoyed this film
Mind you, it's not a film that I could come back to and watch again and again, but it definately deserves a watch (even if it is corny and predictable at times, but hey)
Clerks, the original black and white.
I'm not sure whether I like this one or the new one better. The new movie sends more cheap laughs, but the original has a much deeper mood.
Brilliantly funny, Simon Pegg is superb as always. Well worth a watch & the 'out takes' completely cracked me up. Laughed till I cried.
Awesome movie starring Pacino and DeNiro with one as a cop and another as an expert thief. The movie has a great plot with tons of twists and turns. Plus it has Val Kilmer in it, and he always kicks ass.
Land of the Dead
Some lovely gory bits (though not THAT gory). Good movie. Watch if you like the other Zombie flicks.
Shrek The Third
Went to see it in the cinema today!
I thought that it was OK really, maybe not as good as the first 2, but still enjoyable none the less.
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'.
However other times there were LOL moments.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Yeah, I know I'm hardcore.
Live free or die hard...i didnt want to see this movie but i had too and boom!! it wasnt that bad....i actually liked it.....ho ho ho
meh. nothing to rave about. it had its funny moments buuuut it seriously lacked a plot.
i wish the entertainment industry would stop sequelling the shit out of movies.
It just virtually flawless. I would definably put it up there, with out hesitation, as one of the greatest films of all time.
^ Kurosawa is a genius. Have you seen Seven Samurai?
It was on tv. It was alright. I liked it better when I was younger though.
28 Days Later
I quite enjoyed it. The eyes... Psycho virus ftw!
Back to the Future. Classic 80's movie.
"Thank You for Smoking"
^I liked it a lot!
Even though I hate smoking, never smoked, I can't stand the smell of cigarettes, and I don't understand why people do it. But that's me.
Also, another movie I watched was:
It was quite entertaining actually, I liked the acting part.
^I saw "Thank you for Smoking" the other day on tv too. It was the second time I watched it and was just as brilliant as I had remembered.
ag i saw F4 and FF:TSW...
F4 ws not as bad as i tought it would be
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. The plot was stupid, the action was boring, and Nicholas Cage simply can't play an action hero. It got so bad that I just started fast forwarding through the last 30 minutes or so.
Evan Almighty and I enjoyed it. Simple, some funny parts and much better than Bruce Almighty.
The ROAD WARRIOR
that's Mel pre-antisemitism
Terrible eye candy. Oh god it was orgasmic. Other than that it was a bland film.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
A vast improvement on the previous film. Not only has the acting improved, but the story has become more interesting with You Know Who around. xD Overall, great movie.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Midnight showings, ftw.
The girl next door....it was cute
i wanna se HP ...XD...just 9 more hours...>_>
3.5 / 5 I say.
Read my rant in the Harry threads, and you'll understand
Can't wait till the 7th book comes out! RAARARARARARR!
Dare - Ek - Zoo - Lan - Der
Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
I don't think Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker) was very good in this...cool fight scene on Mustafar, though.
It was waaay better than 4. Got me in HP craze all over again.
Oh it was awesome...
I think it was a good thing that I forgot about most of the story so I wasn't that unhappy about anything that was left out. Personally, this show went beyond my expectations, and I admit watching the older actors make everything worthwhile.
And Helene Bonham Carter made Bellatrix so memorable.
and it was better than I expected. It also brought back memories from childhood
harry potter, and the day before i saw epic movie.
Both were pretty funny, though i found epic movie a little more... annoying.
Live Free or Die Hard. It was a lot better than I thought it would be with all the trademark humor and quality action that makes a Die Hard film with Bruce Willis taking a beating. The only part that I didn't like was the part with the fighter jet since I felt that was a little bit over the top and too much like the Schwarzenagger movie True Lies.
Letters From Iwo Jima
Fantastic film, is all I have to say... Superb. The plight of the Japanese soldier during WWII was captured magnificently by Eastwood. This is one of the better war films in my opinion as the action is always secondary to the emotional story, not the other way around.
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.
I just saw that movie too. And as per usual a million details were left out. Though it would be hard to get it ALL in a 2 hour movie xD
And I agree, Evanna Lynch rocked! cute little irish girl
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.
License To Wed at the cinema.
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).
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Pretty good Potter sequel to add to the franchise. Emma Watson, I swear, is one of the most one-dimensional actresses I've ever seen. That eye-brows thing... lol... its become her trademark.
Way over the top and just too fantastical but other than that it was still a lot of fun to watch.
harry potter & the order of the phoenix
hum. all around a good movie but the thing about movies about books..they're constantly changing shit around so it really ruins your imagination. didn't get a very good sense of the 'order' in the movie & they left a lot of my favorite stuff out. harry is really really hot though xD
the last couple scenes were absolutely stunning - voldemort especially..i really got a sense of how evil he was when he finally showed up. effects were great too.
AND THEY LEFT OUT FUCKING QUIDDITCH
QUIDDITCH IS THE BEST PART OF THE BOOKS
Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes
I really got into this movie. Crazy monkeys looked awesome.
Just got done watching Factory Girl.
I liked it a lot, tho I'm sure it wasn't such a great movie.
It's interesting how edie sedgwick lived her life, and how the people around
her influenced her so much.
a shame really.
I give it a 8 out of ten
^ 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
Brilliant 1980's iconic horror movie that still has the power to scare, make you laugh, and give plenty of enjoyment. Bruce Campbell is pure cheese, and remains to be my favourite horror film hero.
^ Right on. Here are comparison pictures of Edie Sedgwick and Sienna Miller -
^ Real life
^ Sienna portraying her. Quite a resemblance. I love 1960's fashion.
Man on the Moon
A poignant indie drama with Jim Carrey, which was made a few years back. I liked it, despite some of its drawbacks. Jim Carrey can be a fantastic drama actor.
Its was ok, i liked the battle scenes and the guys had really nice bodys...but that doesnt matter
I've seen this a bunch of times, and it's still a good movie even though I've never played the game. I absolutely love the music in this movie.
Bad News Bears (Billy Bob Thorton)
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.
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
^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.
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.
^ 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.
^ 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
^^ 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.
^ Has that got Kate Winslet in ? Or am i thinking of something else ?
umm no it doesn't, so it must be another movie you're thinking about.
Unrested..i think that was the name
ok stupid movie but the guy had a good body...at least i had to entertain myself cus the movie was crap...the story was crap
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
^ 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.
Great singing, acting and dancing.
It was just great fun all-around! XD
Gattaca... pretty good. I kept thinking that last space ship at the end was gonna be like in the island when they got everyone roundedup and threw them in an incinerator. I guess I was half right.
Brilliant, I enjoyed it a lot.
The Simpsons Movie
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.
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.
pretty good movie. lots of suspense & some good last minute twists. surprisingly, halle berry wasn't too bad xD
The Simpsons Movie
Seen it for the second time today. A bit overrated IMO, but still it had a lot of LOL moments. Worth a watch though AND we got to hear Maggie's first word, w00t!
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.
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.
^ I didn't think it was as good as people said it was.
I think it's pretty good, and it has a good soundtrack, with lots of action.
I will have to admit.. i'v watched alot of movies. But I think iv watched FF7: AC between all of them, and the last movie I watched was FF7
simpsons movie. it was pretty good. short, though.
Just saw Live Free or Die Hard.
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.
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.
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.
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`)
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.
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
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.
I've never really liked Moore, but this movie got me thinking about immigrating to the UK...
... although I'd have to buy new appliances
I watched RATATOUILLE! It was a really great animation movie, for those who likes 3D animation, it's greattt!!
I'm watching 300 for the second time, and it's not as good as the first time, I guess the expirience changes when you're watching it at the movies and when you're watching it at home. Although the men are still pretty good.
I watched The Island wasn't too bad
Rush Hour 2
Because I need to refresh my mind so I'm ready for Rush Hour 3 to be released (unless it is already..o__O) I think Chris Tucker is mad xD
^ Chris Tucker is the bomb
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.
Didn't like it much. It was predictable and had no depth.
