Last movie I saw the The Prestige last night. Great movie. Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, and David Bowie. (Yes, THAT David Bowie) Rented it on Blu-Ray and it looked great. Great plot that really makes you want to see the movie again, just so you can pick up on all the things you missed the first time. 8/10 at least.

We took our daughter (7) to see Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. Very cute movie and very nice effects. We are still trying to figure out how to incorporate some of the effects into an LBP level.:D 9/10

LOL I loved that movie when I was younger :D
Saw Tremors II as well lol
I just checked on IMDb and there is actually a Tremors III & IV.
And Tremors V: The Thunder from Down Under has been announced for a 2010 release lol You have a lot of viewing there my friend :p

I watched Mirrors last night with kiefer sutherland in. It was ok-ish, but a bit far fetched. It's a Candyman sort of film :)

I went to see the new Harry Potter movie. I must say I was pretty impressed. I didn't think as much of the first few of them, but the last few have become pretty darn interesting. This last one has more of a Lord of the Rings feel with all the great set and cg work. Just seemed more huge, but I guess seeing it in an actual theater sorta helped!! Still some cutesy Potter moments, but can easily understand their inclusion. All and all pretty good movie.

Hm... I thought the story was amazing, and that the whole movie was great. :/

Anyways, I saw Deep Blue Sea

Which I shall give a 7/10

It was cool, except it sharks that where smart, but not smart enough to do many obvious things, silly things that the characters could've done, but didn't, or something that did happen, but shouldn't of, and it was strange as whenever someone did something good to help the others, they would be eaten suddenly, and sometimes randomly.

The Haunting In Connecticut was the last movie I saw. I give it a 3/10. The kid with cancer (Kyle Gallner) was great, but all other acting was laughably bad, and the movie was a mess. It was a series of shock moments strung together and connected by a joke of a plot. Some "true stories" don't translate well into movies.

Saw Harry Potter at the cinema, I'll give it 9/10 simply because some of the key actors just aren't that good. I don't like the books, but the films have all been pretty good, if a tad predictable.

Last DVD I saw was sex drive, which was actually suprisingly good (I was expecting something awful), probs a 7.

I find it interesting that everyone is so divided on Watchmen. I can't wait for the extended version to come out on Blu Ray, will be awesome. And anyway, the plot isn't actually the most significant aspect of the Novel, Alan Moore was far more interested in the characters and general commentary on society and the superhero genre. The man is a genius, even if he does spend half his time shuffling round town dressed like a wizard :p

I don't quite see how rating Harry Potter 10/10 makes me delusional. Does that mean I am unable to recognise when I actually think something is excellent. Or does it mean I thought I was watching a different film?

I couldn't agree more. I love Office Space, so my expectations were sky-high, but I walked away feeling underwhelmed and disappointing.

Anyway, earlier today I watched What the Bleep Do We Know!? If you're unfamiliar, it's a documentary heavy on quantum physics and the like. There's some pretty mind blowing stuff in there.

But the last movie I saw was Public Enemies. Johnny Depp and Christian Bale were fantastic as usual, but the movie was mostly boring and typical Michael Mann; 30 minutes too long and unnecessary hand held camera work.

I am just interested to find out what you hated about it though. :)

They hooked me in the first minute by just setting up the characters in fake trailers.

The scenes always seemed cluttered and unorganised, it made it hard to focus on what was meant to be happening.
I found it hard to immerse myself in the plot, i was too busy trying to figure out what was meant to be happening and i personally thought the acting/script was terrible.

I had the EXACT same problem with Madagascar 2, i walked out on that as well. Looks like Dreamworks is setting a trend.

Okay, I can digg that. :) But you did know that the acting was deliberately terrible in the beginning, right?
Oh and yes....Madagascar 2 was pretty bad but that has a lot to do with Ben Stiller having the worst voice ever to portray an animated character.

Just finished watching Equilibrium with Christian Bale. Intriguing plot, good story, and he gets a puppy. =p That said, the action scenes, while featuring some rather impressive gunplay, got to point of just being hokey and unrealistic. I give it about a 7/10. Would have been much higher (say 9) if some of the action hadn't been so lame. I still recommend it, though.

Go see Ponyo! It's just wonderful in every conceivable way. I knew Myazaki would do something great, but I confess I wasn't too excited based on the trailers. I didn't like the design of Ponyo herself. Nevertheless, by the 15-minute mark, I was absolutely in love with this movie's world and characters. And it's got moments of really masterful filmmaking. Myazaki is incredible, I really do think he's one of the best movie directors working today.

Last night I finally saw Pan's Labyrinth, or El Labarinto del Faun (or some such). As you can see, it's in Spanish. The whole thing. Which I thought was cool, since it happens in Spain. Anyway, as good as the movie was, it was nothing at all like I thought it was going to be. I went into it expecting this really dark, maybe slightly disturbing, fantasy movie about a girl in another world. What I got was a movie about a girl who is really a princess of another world from "a long time ago" whose spirit has just returned. There are only a few fantasy creatures, as the entire movie takes place in Spain, following the girl carrying out three tasks to prove her princess-ship.

When we're not watching Ofelia wandering around trying to put magic rocks in the mouths of giant toads or talking to a faun (arguably the coolest character of the whole movie) we're treated to watching a captain seek out guerrillas in the woods around his woodland estate. In fact, we see more of this then Ofelia.

Needless to say, I was disappointed, but I can appreciate the movie for what it is. Sorry for writing so much, I just want to fully explain what really happens here. Anyway, 7.5/10

Watchmen? Dull? you're kidding right? Watchmen was great! Have you read the comic? because is was pretty much the best comic to movie transistion possible for the graphic novel.

If you went into Watcmen expecting tons of action then you went into the wrong movie. Watchmen has the most intelligent storyline of any comic book movie.

Watcmen is at least an 8.5/10.

Gran Torino was alright, but the acting on Clint Eastwoods and the Hmong co-stars was just so bad it dragged the movie down to about a 6.5/10.

Haha I stand by that. Ripley and her clones was a brilliant twist and added a lot to the character. I still remember the scene where she's playing basketball and the crew of the Betty walk in (including Ron Perlman and Dominique Pinon - it's like a Caro & Jeunet reunion!!), brilliant and creepy.

supersickie, I still advise that you go into the movie with the lowest of the low expectations, as I went in knowing that people think it's ABYSMAL, and was blown away.

I LOVED The Hurt Locker! This is by far the best war movie I've seen in YEARS. I thought it was a better movie than Full Metal Jacket. There's no character to match R. Lee Ermey, but I will stand by The Hurt Locker - I really think they made a better war movie with this than Stanley Kubrick did.

I'm an off-and-on movie buff and I thought this forum could use a general movie thread. If not, delete this, ban me, no great loss.

I guess to kick things off, I just rewatched 'Raising Arizona'. I love this movie so much, despite Nicholas Cage. This is like one of two movies featuring him that I really really like (the other being Matchstick Men.) One of the funniest movies I have seen, I think.

The Coenn brothers make so much gooooddddd stufffff. O Brother, Where Art Thou etc.

Last movie I saw - last night - was Ichi the Killer. I was never really interested, but a friend recommended it to me. It's undoubtedly a very singular, stylized movie, but I just couldn't make myself care about the characters or the story. It wasn't so disturbing as its reputation may have you believe. It's based on an ultraviolent dark comedy manga. The violence is never realistic, it's always super-stylized, even to the extent of being cartoony. There's the occasional scene or fluorish or bit of visual filmmaking that works amazingly well. In one scene, a crucial gang meeting is held, only the leader of the gang appears via teleconference, even though the meeting is live in a restaurant. They play with this quite a bit, and I thought it was a really funny bit of visual filmmaking.

I might still watch Audition, because I've heard this is a far more "grown up" movie compared with Ichi, but I don't know. I'll see if I'm in the mood to watch another Takashi Miike movie. I'm just not someone who's into horror/slasher/disturbo-violence, and Miike just seems to love pushing the envelope and trying to shock, and this can pretty easily distract from story and character if it becomes the centerpiece of a movie (see Gaspar Noe). I saw his segment of "3 Extremes", which involved such lovely shots as a close-up of a housewife using kitchen tools to mash up a pulpy pink meat substance on a cutting board. Yep, turns out the fountain of youth is human fetus meat. Thanks for that, Takashi!

EDIT: Should mention my lady just saw "How to Train Your Dragon" and came back surprisingly impressed. I noticed an obscene 97% on rottentomatoes, but seriously, they give a free pass to family CG flicks. They really do.

Also, regarding movie threads: No single movie thread has ever really stood the test of time, so I wouldn't worry about posting threads that have been done similarly before. This one may have a short life, and then in a couple of months, one of us movie buffs will notice that the subject of movies isn't being represented here, so we'll do it up again. It's the circle. The circle of life.

I thought it looked pretty generic and uninteresting from the trailers, but somehow my girlfriend came back with very good things to say about it. Still don't know if I'll see it, but there aren't a whole lot of movies out right now that I'd go see.

Blood Into Wine is a documentary about Maynard James Keenan's winery. Seeing that guy make wine sounds like enough movie for me, but alas, it only played here for a week and I missed it. Have to wait for that one.

The latest movie I watched was The Fantastic Mr. Fox and I loved it! And if you were in the room with me while watching, you would have known how much I loved it. I laughed like a maniac through the entire thing. I don't know what it was, but the expressions of the characters and some of the dry, dead pan dialogue just cracked me up. My family found it entertaining, but I think they started to laugh at me laughing at the movie more than the movie itself! Whoa, does that sentence even make sense? I think I'm loosing it again. I'm soo tired. Goodnight!

Uugh... I just watched Audition. Not impressed at all. In the end it's pretty shallow and flat, and there's very little to recommend it aside from some interesting takes on dream/nightmare sequences. Movie feels like a first film or a student film... but in fact it was a decade into Miike's career, he was about 40 when he directed it.

Ah well. I do think it's hilarious that most dvd covers for the movie make it look like a traditional torture-porn horror flick. Looking at the cover, you kind of go in expecting "Hostel", but in fact it's a pretty straightforward, if slightly strange little love story until the end when everything gets ultra violent, and not for any particularly strong reason except that in the end, it's revealed to essentially have the heart of a horror movie. It's really pretty shallow, and so many scenes are just incredibly flat and don't really have much in the way of mood or atmosphere.

I really don't think this movie deserves its reputation as being one of the most disturbing movies out there, but then again maybe crap like Antichrist has just totally desensitized me.

EDIT: Just wanted to follow up my previous post where I said that I had heard about how Audition was more "grown up" than Ichi the Killer. But now that I've seen both back to back, I think it's the other way around. Ichi is the ridiculous, even childish cartoon ultra-violent shock fest. Audition is 90% deadpan serious man-doing-dishes and man-sitting-in-traffic and man-having-serious-conversation-with-other-man kind of stuff, really really dry and earnest. But there was no filmmaking in Audition with a few small exceptions. I can't BELIEVE I'm saying this after sitting through Ichi, but seriously, Audition made Ichi the Killer look like some sort of filmmaking masterpiece.

No hokey in your face parlor tricks or out of focus brain pains, so that was a plus. But the whole story seemed a bit rushed and a touch stale. Visually, it was well done... but the acting and character development left a lot to be desired. 7/10

Sherlock Holmes was just... ok. I had hoped for more as well. However, Alice was a bit of a let down to me. I was SO excited to see the latest installment of the Johnny/Tim flick but was deflated by the story. The story seemed so flat to me. With the possibilities of wonderland, I guess I had expected more if the idea were that Alice was returning to her childhood adventure. All they did was redo what was done before and then add a stale story line. I'd rather them have just done the original story through Burton's vision, but I guess Disney didn't want the classic to be treaded all over with Tim's dark presence. Too bad. It is visually pleasing. I did enjoy the acting and characters. But that story was just so... meh.

Dark Knight for the win. Especially the Joker's epic pencil trick.
Last of the Mohicans is great, so is Dances with Wolves. Music in Last of the Mohicans is the bomb, and Dances with Wolves has a great storyline.

I think that's all the films i've seen recently. The last film i went to the cinema for was Did you Hear About The Morgans?, as Saulbecomespaul says it is actually quite funny.
I thought Sherlock Holmes was brilliant.
Another film if you haven't seen it you should watch is called Minority Report. Such a confusing plot, but the storyline is good, and when it comes together at the end, you get this moment when everyone you're watching the film with just goes "Ohhhhhhhh".

Hubble 3D.

Please... PLEASE... ANYONE who has access to an Imax theater showing this movie - go see it AS SOON AS YOU CAN. It's only 45 minutes. If you live in a city showing this movie, you have no excuse whatsoever.

If you leave NEAR a city showing this movie, hunt it down immediately!

If you live nowhere near a city showing this movie... Isn't it about time for a good old fashioned road trip?

I took a 4-hour train ride to hunt it down, and I cannot imagine 45 minutes being more worth a trip. I was completely and totally blown to pieces.

Iron Man.

This might actually be my favorite superhero movie of them all. Yes, I think I actually like it more then Dark Knight and Batman Begins and I don't even like the Iron Man character more then Batman. If nothing else, the movie is a lot more fun and a lot less depressing, lack of Heath Ledger Joker aside.

Can't wait for the sequel.

Speaking of super-hero movies (I did looove Iron Man), Kick-*** looks really good... all my friends went to see it while I was at work :(

I never did really like the Dark Knight, even beyond the annoying fans. Ledger was great and all but the dialogue got all cheeseball, especially at the end, and it sounded like Bale had something stuck in his rear the whole time.

I'm hesitant to see Kick-*** due to the fact that the original story was written by Mark Miller, whose work I never really liked past Superman: Red Son. Though I heard there were a lot of changes made in adapting it to film as well.

Personally, the major criticisms I had with Dark Knight is that it had far too much content for a single film (I feel like they should have saved Two-Face for the third film) and Bale's narmtacular Batman voice, which wasn't so much of an issue in Batman Begins as he isn't in the costume as much and plays the part of Bruce Wayne much better in my opinion.

04-24-2010, 09:13 AM
I read Ebert's review. It's not surprising. Ebert's always had sort of a sensitive stomach when it comes to "uncomfortable" content, to the extent that it pretty much blinds him from the rest of the movie.

Another weakness of Ebert's is his almost total lack of knowledge of things not film. If it's a novel adaptation, he's never read the novel. If it's a comic book adaptation, well, he doesn't know a thing about comics. If he's talking about videogames, well it's pretty obvious from those opinions that he doesn't play many videogames.

It just so happens that Kick-*** is a combination of both. It has some squirm-inducing content in addition to being based on a graphic novel that is chiefly concerned with the form of comic book traditions.

So yeah, basically he couldn't get over a couple of scenes involving the character of Hitgirl. Violence + 10-year-old-girl was just too much for Ebert to stomach, and had no idea what the "comic book" context for all of it was.

Just watch his review of Blue Velvet for another example of his inability to look past a bit of uncomfy imagery in order to honestly see what a movie's trying to do.

04-26-2010, 07:51 AM
Yes, I loved The Wrestler. It was an incredibly well-paced movie, short and sweet, and without a single excessive scene.

On the OTHER hand, I just saw The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It's a Swedish mystery/thriller that's been getting a ton of buzz lately. It must have been at LEAST 2 and a half hours long, and I think easily could have been 30 minutes shorter. Lots of useless flashbacks that don't really help your understanding of the characters and mainly serve to just remind you that it was based on a mystery novel.

This actress that plays the titular character, Noomi Rapace - She was amazing. Easily the best reason to see the movie.

I'm not the biggest fan of this type of thriller for the most part, and this was definitely genre stuff. But the acting and some pretty striking frigid Swiss weather set it apart.

I noticed that David Fincher is in development to do an American version. Which we need... why?? It wasn't like I had to hunt this movie down at some art-house theater. It was playing at the big blockbuster multiplex. Maybe because The Departed won so many oscars. Argh, I don't know. But even great filmmakers seem to be running out of ideas and turning to popular foreign films to remake these days...

2 movies!

Thank You For Smoking - I've now seen all of Jason Reitman's movies (Juno and Up in the Air being the others). This guy's my age, and he's had 2 movies in a row up for best picture. That drives me crazy! But anyway, he's a solid filmmaker. I'm not a big fan of any of his movies. The thing that gets me is the snappy "Dawson's Creek Syndrome" dialogue and characters. Everyone's wittier and sharper and quicker than natural, and nobody ever acknowledges this. The world is just a world where people talk in constant rapid-fire snappy quips. All 3 of his movies are like this.

Sugar - I was a bit mixed on this watching it, but by the time the credits rolled I really loved what they were doing. There's a bit too much thoughtful gazing for me. I feel like half of this movie is just the main character by himself, thoughtfully quiet and gazing at something. Basically, it's your run of the mill "rags to riches" sports story, except with one major, major difference. Up until now, these sports movies and biopics represent the 1% of the sports career population that make it to the top, and they operate as fantasies for the audience. This is one of the only movies of this type I've ever seen that represents the other 99%. The players that DON'T make it. The players that have more common lives, that don't make it to the Majors and have their own baseball cards. It's not a fantasy, it's just real life, a movie about one of us, not one of "them". The guys that end up working in a restaurant and living life. It was such a compassionate and honest movie I can't not love it and deeply appreciate it. I would say that this movie should be seen by children everywhere, except I honestly don't think any reasonable child is going to want to sit through 2 hours of reading subtitles and watching a guy by himself gazing.
And there is a LOT of gazing.

The Fall - Tarsem's trippy movie about the power of storytelling. This is quite a time. He finds a good way to utilize his over-the-top theatrical artsy visuals (remember The Cell?), by making them into deliberately ridiculous and fantastical storytelling sequences. The actual story, which takes place in a hospital between a poor injured girl and a suicidal man, is incredibly engaging, and almost entirely because of this little girl. I don't think I've ever in my life seen a better performance from such a young actor (being about 6 years old). It was incredible. And I'm a little torn on it, because you can see a bit of how this happened in the making-of documentary. Tarsem is screaming at her, calling her stupid, and when she starts sobbing and crying, he demands that she immediately get in front of the camera and do it or else her acting will continue to be horrible. At the same time, she's clearly a tough girl and by the end of the documentary you can see that this stuff pretty much rolls off her shoulders. But you have to wonder what kind of psychological trauma this movie put her through. Sarah Polley's been pretty clear about how shooting Baron Munchausen really screwed her up, so...
But anyway, the visuals are some of the most incredible I've ever seen, considering 90% of them are all real. You think you're seeing CG or matte paintings, or something fake - but you're not. Amazing, amazing images are presented over and over, and it's nearly all done for real.

"Music from 28 Days Later" I can give you if you're referring to an original score from that movie. But in this case you're talking about East Hastings by Godspeed You Black Emperor. This is a song about a neighborhood of Vancouver, one of the worst neighborhoods in North America. It was written before 28 Days Later, happened to be used in that movie and others, and in no way, shape, or form belongs to Danny Boyle's movie. But I ALWAYS hear it referred to as "that song from 28 Days Later".

Okay, okay. thanks for the info. But I identify it with 28 days later and I probably always will... haha. It was just used so well in that movie.

About to watch Gladiator for the 3rd time with the sister and her friend - will report back and say that it was awesome.

Lastly, went to bestbuy to pick up a HDMI /DVD-i or something cable with a friend for her TV. Saw Avatar on bluray there. The picture was incredibly sharp and clear, of course - but I couldn't help but feel that it looked a LOT worse than it did in the theater. I didn't see it in 3-D, I mean beyond that. It kinda felt like I was watching a very high-budget ScyFy original movie..

I mean, it was still marvelous - but it had some kind of real/fake vibe to it. I can't properly describe it.

The artistry was still amazing, but the technical feats were just lessened.

This sounds pretty close to what I sort of expected Avatar to be like on the old tv. I had such a great time seeing that movie in giant immersive 3d, but I feared for how it might play at home - the best I could imagine is that you'd remember fondly the first time you saw it in giant 3D. It's a movie that almost depends on it. They played everything else so safe, story and character wise, that without the immersion, it probably loses a certain fundamental something.

I can confirm your suspicions, Tee.

I almost regret watching it again, because it was almost like watching a different movie.

Vertigo - Great, great movie, but I think accidentally creepy in some ways. James Stewart as the love interest at his age, creepily obsessed with a 26-year-old girl, just seriously changes the dynamic of the relationship. Whereas you're SUPPOSED to occasionally feel a passionate tension between them, all I could really see was, "get out of there girl, the old man's giving you the EYES!" The love affair isn't based on them getting to know each other really well, it's based on sudden attraction, which doesn't really work if he's an obsessive old man and she's a young beauty.

I love Jimmy Stewart, he's one of my all-time favorite actors, but I don't like seeing him as a creepy old perv, and Vertigo inadvertently did that to me.

Aside from that, amazing cinematography and filmmaking. It's a "city film", and a really good one, perhaps the best portrait of San Francisco I've seen in a movie. But what can I say about the love story at the center of this movie, I just COULDN'T buy it.

Edit: I'm listening to Deftones - Be Quiet and Drive, and the thought struck me how much this song fits Vertigo. Especially the lines
"I dressed you in her clothes
Now drive me far away"

seem remarkably similar to the tone and content of the movie.

Meanwhile, check out this sweet nightmare sequence!

Hmm, I have to admit, I'm not particularly into Iron Man, but I'll probably see it with some buddies this weekend.

Watched The Cell last night for the first time since I saw it in the theater. Weird movie. I get the impression that the director Tarsem just had disdain for the investigation scenes and just wanted to get through them so he could indulge in his visual flamboyance during the mind-trips. The entire fbi investigation storyline is just ridiculous, overdone, predictable, and unbelievably run-of-the-mill, whereas the scenes inside the killer's head are totally unique, visionary set pieces. So what the hell? How is this movie both of these things at once? I don't think I can think of another movie I can describe as being both "unique and visionary" and "totally cliched and run-of-the-mill" at the same time. Also, holy crap is Vince Vaughn BAD in this movie!

And I also just can't help but laugh at the end when Jennifer Lopez imagines herself as a saintly nun-like virgin Mary figure. What the hell. And she does a few things in the climactic scene which are just... they're ridiculous. What were they thinking. I guess they really wanted it to have a Hollywood style "showdown" at the end, even though the story up until then really didn't set it up for such a thing.

A few amazing sequences don't save this movie from the other aborted 80%, but I would definitely watch this again - I'd just have to fast-forward through the filler and exposition.

One movie I saw just the other day that I've found myself occasionally regretting watching: Lars Von Trier's Antichrist. I think Von Trier's an interesting filmmaker, and I'm always curious to see what he's up to.

Antichrist is a mixture of amazing filmmaking, obnoxious pretentious bullcrap (the hardcore calvin klein commercial prologue for example), and over-the-top shock-meister trash. I saw things in this movie that I would have been more than happy to never have to witness for the duration of my long life. The movie's full of powerful imagery, mood and a haunting atmosphere - but none of these things end up HAUNTING you because they're so overshadowed by a couple of short shock-gore sequences. You feel like you've watched 3 movies in one: An incredibly affecting atmospheric tarkovsky film, an extended Calvin Klein for Men advertisement, and the BME Pain Olympics. Thanks for that, Lars. Jesus Christ.

Hey man, I'll save you the trouble and flat out tell you exactly what the nasty bits are if you want.

I'm not kidding when I say they could have taken out just 2 little bits, and the movie would have been 100% better. There would still be a hefty dose of arty pretentious crap, a few inadvertently funny scenes (chaos... reigns!), and torture porn horror. But the movie would be way, way better and easier to take. It seems the only reason it's in there is to make it as hard to stomach as possible.

For the morbidly curious, check the spoiler tag, but I'm not going to go into details.

2 instances of genital mutilation. Male and female. Each is graphically, x-ratedly explicit, and you will be a better, happier person for the rest of your life if you never see these. To be clear, they're just absolutely nasty and that's the bottom line. We don't need close-ups. We get close-ups. We don't WANT close ups. Well, we get close ups.

Von Trier REALLY wants to get under your skin with this movie, and I think resorting to this sort of clearly exploitative business is a sign that he's unsure he can really do it with the rest of his movie. It's his insurance policy. If the rest of the movie doesn't dig at you underneath your skin and disturb you deeply, well then at least THESE parts will!

Also saw Iron Man 2 today. Not too impressed... Most of the time, just not much was happening. At all. What's Mickey Rourke got to do in this movie? He's supposed to be the villain, but he basically hangs out, does some tinkering occasionally. Good lord. Just nothing happening. How do you make a sequel like this post-Dark Knight? Don't you AT LEAST have to raise the stakes a little? You definitely don't LOWER the stakes!!

Also saw Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. I thought this looked like a total waste of time. Turns out it's quite funny. It's really breezy and feels like just a long-ish episode of Invader Zim. Actually worth a watch for some decent yuk yuks.

As far as iron man 2 goes, I thought the pacing was all wrong. There was nothing for a long time and then a big burst of action at the end. When Iron Man was beating people up, it was fun, but they spent far too long explaining things without a break for things to be blown up.

And I'm quite surprised to hear that cloudy with a chance of meatballs was funny. It looked like absolute rubbish from the previews.

And I didn't end up watching Popcorn. My friends just played street fighter 4 all night.

Beware is all I'll say! :p

Oh god, The Box. That movie was hilarious!
It's actually a perfectly fine short film for the first 20 minutes or so. It's a remake of a Twilight Zone. When the man leaves their house and says, "...but it will be someone you don't know."
That's it! That's a story! That's a movie! ENDING.

But then... Then Richard Kelly takes over... Then he starts exploring his own idea of what everything MEANS.

And then we have this thing, this unbelievable weird hilarious THING, where jesus particles arrive from Mars and absurdity after absurdity stack up until you just can't take it seriously anymore. If you want to see this type of movie on CRACK, check out his previous movie Southland Tales. It's the weirdest stuff from The Box, multiplied a hundredfold, and just going constantly, from beginning to end, for 2 and a half hours.

Will my nose bleed?? That's the question.. :p

Seriously thanks for that, made me laugh and sitting through that horrible movie somewhat worthwhile now, at least I can look back and laugh at it's absurdity.

I really liked Moon as well. I'm thrilled for Duncan Jones' followup. He calls it a "city film" in the spirit of Blade Runner. It takes place following the events of Moon and will have at least a cameo of Sam Bell back on earth. But the story is centered elsewhere.

Anyway, that info's enough to get excited about. The entire script's not hard to find online if you wanted to dig into it, but I'm staying away - don't want to spoil it for myself. One of the greatest parts of Moon was just watching it unspool and not knowing where it was taking you.

I saw The Last Emperor tonight. Beautiful movie, I loved it. Quite a bit of pretty bad acting on one hand, and it's weird to see so many actors I recognize from more mainstream 80s stuff like Big Trouble in Little China and Twin Peaks. But it really was a gorgeous epic, and an incredibly interesting story.

I watched "Harry Brown" last night. Michael Caine was brilliant!

It's probably the best thriller i've seen since "The Disappearance of Alice Creed", which I watched last week! :p

Iron Man. After seeing Iron Man 2 at the movies, I decided to relive the prequel.

Yeah, kickin' back, eating chicken wings, and admiring Stark's goatee. <3

The Last House on the Left. Thought it was a great movie. I was physically shaking at times although not sure if the slight chill in the air amplified it :P I found the whole idea very unsettling. Not sure if I would be so welcoming as the family were if 4 really dodgey looking individuals turned up at my door in the middle of the night. The only thing that bugged me was the very end, something happens involving a microwave, very unbelievable. Would that actually happen? I thought it was very realistic right up until that point which took me out of the state of disbelief. Other than that I'd say it's well worth a watch if you like thrillers. It was the remake by the way.

I just watched the remake of "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and it was ok. It's not as cool as the original and not as blood either but the new Krueger was very convincing though I missed the old face all the time! I read that the actor for the remake even visited the casting for the original movie back then!

Finally got to see Avatar. I rented it on DVD.

Was ok. 3D must make it instantly amazing or something. :P
Just what I expected, over-hyped. Pandora variants have existed in video games (conceptually at least) and the general public have never experienced them until now which is pretty sad.
I did like the creature designs (my fav being the hammerhead rhinos with feathers), I just which they showcased more kinds of creatures.

Best part was when the rhinos made their second appearance. I love when nature rises up and sticks it to the man.
