Jurassic Park - 8/10

wanted to go higher, it just felt quite dated, not the effects which were still top notch but the clothes and tech liked corded phones and crt monitors, it took a while to get started and the kids were very annoying at the start and i found John Hammond to be too corny.

Still a great film though once it got serious

3rd installment to the Rec series. Its more of the same, but this time takes place during a wedding. Its pretty good, but the whole "holy" vibe was a different spin on the "zombies" this time around making them out to be infected demons more than anything.

Half shakey cam half regular movie. Similar to the other 2 but still a fun movie.

Finally got to see Django Unchained. 10/10. I'm a big Tarantino fan, but as much as I love Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, I think he's improved with age. Django is just an excellent flick all the way around, showing off his talent with dialog, plotting, and his uncanny ability to build tension in a non-action scene.

I actually think it's pretty relevant right now with all the war vets I see on TV struggling to integrate back into normal society.

This film is a stunning depiction of that.

Taxi Driver is a masterpiece for several reasons, the overall character arc, Deniro's acting etc. But in no way is it's before anyone's time. Like Robocop it's just as relevant today as when it was released. Travis feels lonely in a sea of people, which is only amplified today by overpopulation and electronic devices. He feels like he's helpless against it all and his faith in the government being able to fix it was also misplaced. It does take time to soak in and multiple viewings to really grow on you though I think.

As to not liking it, I can't see how people here wouldn't since it's pretty much a superhero movie, fairly closely mirroring Bruce Wayne's own story.

What is he in the end? Is he a hero? Are we to suppose that he does find peace with society and so on or will he remain unhinged?

He is far from a hero in my eyes. He is a dangerous, depressed lonely man that needs help asap. He quenched his thirst of wanting to hurt somebody in a clever disguised manner. I think his actions of wanting to help Iris was genuine but it still allowed him to kill Sport and the bouncers. Obviously his first port of call was to kill Senator Palantine but that was foiled by the SS.

Like I say no way is Trav a hero in my eyes, the media didn't know him like us the viewer.

I saw it for the first time earlier this year. Had the same reaction you did. Overrated 'classic'. I went into it thinking Travis was going to rival some of the truly epic homicidal psycho characters out there ... and he wasn't even close.

I think I rated it a 6. It wasn't awful ... but not nearly as classic, or even memorable, as I expected.

Put it this way I would worry for Iris's family if he did indeed take them up on their offer to stay with them.

Having said that if there were specific clues that nothing had been resolved for this guy by the end of the film, that he hadn't gotten his killing urge out of his system, I either didn't spot them or I'm not interpreting them correctly.

I found myself wondering ''maybe he's done, maybe he was himself surprised at the media reaction to what he'd done, he was content to have gotten away with it all as a hero and from there on decides not to tarnish that''. Thats my own speculation on first viewing and having never really read much about the film.

I think the biggest indication was the very end, his anxious glancing in the rear view mirror. Kind of indicates his unhinged personality is still rife! He is incredibly troubled and very dangerous. That was my interpretation of the end and his state of mind.

I think Deck's is right, it needs multiple views to possibly truely appreciate the film :)

It was a figure of speech. (A 'carrier' is somebody who doesn't show symptoms of a disease, but is still contagious.) If he isn't supposed to be a homicidal psycho, he's close enough.

The point is, he was a homicidal psycho, and he paled in comparison to the truly great homicidal psycho performances ... Chigurh, Lecter, Bateman, Bates, Torrance, Ledger's Joker, Ed Norton in Primal Fear, Kevin Spacey in Se7en, Kathy Bates in Misery, etc.

If you're comparing Travis Bickle to all those others who are truly psycho and sociopaths, again, I don't know what to tell you. The movie isn't for everyone, I can at least understand that...

That's my point. He isn't in their league, and he probably could've been. He was a psycho and sociopath. He just wasn't good enough to be among the greats -- and, after all the hype, I expected that he would be.

I'm certainly not the only one comparing them, though ...

Those are just the lists off page 1 of a Google search for "top movie psychos". There are quite a few lists that seem to have him among the top psychos in the history of movies. I don't think he compares favorably to the greats, but the idea that the comparison itself is out-of-left-field is odd.

Travis is experiancing pts as he returns to the world but he's still young and optimistic. Then of course we slowly see his slide into depression as he realises the world he was fighting for isn't what he thought it was. He falls back on his military training to kill time and build back up his body with the idea he needs to do something to make a differance but he doesn't know what. Then he realises his faith in government was misplaced and snaps and tries to assassinate the senator. After it fails he realises he can use his power to help sport instead. But yes he is still very dangerous. He is temporarily satisfied as the letter from her parents proves he did make a differance and his world brightens up a bit but he is still driving in the same city, still disconnected from people and likely to need an outlet again. I unlike Teddy, do see Travis as a hero, but a very flawed and tragic one, a victim of what he was made by the country he trusted when he was young and naive, he made the right choice ultimately doing something to help more then hurt once he's given that oppurtunity but at the same time he's obviously still dangerous. Closer to say Tim Burton's Batman who still kills people then Patrick Bateman imo but we see this movie in a much more realistic and less favorable light then a typical superhero movie. But if you see Hitgirl or Punisher as a hero, Travis isn't very differant, again just shown in a differant light and taken more seriously rather then having the fact that say your a 10 year old girl murdering people be a gimmicky joke. Ultimately Travis wants to kill the people he does because he feels it will make the world a better place, it's a pyschotic urge but I see it differantly than Patrick Bateman.

Big talk from a guy that got confused by the word "carrier".

None of the psycho characters to whom I said he paled in comparison wore hockey masks (Lecter was kinda close, though). 'Horror' movies generally suck. Even the ones with hockey masks. My wife likes them, though.

I doubt its "over my head". I understood it. It just wasn't that great.

Travis is experiancing pts as he returns to the world but he's still young and optimistic. Then of course we slowly see his slide into depression as he realises the world he was fighting for isn't what he thought it was. He falls back on his military training to kill time and build back up his body with the idea he needs to do something to make a differance but he doesn't know what. Then he realises his faith in government was misplaced and snaps and tries to assassinate the senator. After it fails he realises he can use his power to help sport instead. But yes he is still very dangerous. He is temporarily satisfied as the letter from her parents proves he did make a differance and his world brightens up a bit but he is still driving in the same city, still disconnected from people and likely to need an outlet again. I unlike Teddy, do see Travis as a hero, but a very flawed and tragic one, a victim of what he was made by the country he trusted when he was young and naive, he made the right choice ultimately doing something to help more then hurt once he's given that oppurtunity but at the same time he's obviously still dangerous. Closer to say Tim Burton's Batman who still kills people then Patrick Bateman imo but we see this movie in a much more realistic and less favorable light then a typical superhero movie. But if you see Hitgirl or Punisher as a hero, Travis isn't very differant, again just shown in a differant light and taken more seriously rather then having the fact that say your a 10 year old girl murdering people be a gimmicky joke.

I heard somebody else compare it to Death Wish. The end ... maybe. But, the political assassination thing was closer to Hinkley than The Punisher. This wasn't really a revenge flick like Death Wish, or Man on Fire, or Harry Brown. It wasn't righteous rage ... he was delusional.

As I see it, he got progressively more delusional and psychotic ... and went on a killing spree. The targets just happened to be pimps -- because he met too much resistance when trying to kill a political candidate. You see "hero" ... I see a psycho that was too cowardly or incompetent to kill his real target.

Riiiiiiight. So in the context of using the word "carrier" you explained it as "someone who doesn't show symptoms of a disease, but is still contagious". What disease was he contagious of? And who was he infecting?

SnakeDoc

And you just perfectly described Batman who most consider a hero minus the killing in most versions. Same goes for Punisher. Millions consider Frank a hero.

Which is what I said the differance here is, it's presented more realisticly in the sense we explore what it is that drives someone to do those things, the mental trauma isn't played off as a joke like with say Hitgirl or a character like her. Rather then actually explore what would drive a young girl to have such a break from reality and to be corrupted by a policeman and her father, it's funny because its Nic Cage and he's whacky and thats enough of an explanation.

As I said he's absolutely pyschotic and delusional but as a product of the world around him making him that way. We take kids everyday with zero real life experiance who are naive and susceptible and make them professional murderers. It's only when he comes back and actually has a chance to live his own life for the very first time he realises he doesn't agree at all with what he was fighting for and the people who made him that way, in this case his government, who also let him down in being able to make a differace. Things just get worse and worse and he takes matters into his own hands. It's absolutely misplaced but it's way differant than why someone like Bateman is the way he is and does the things he does.

Nobody had a contagious disease. Its just a turn-of-phrase. I've heard it before. I've used it before. Maybe its a Southern thing. Never really befuddled somebody quite this much, though.

Honestly, I had to look up where I first heard it. I knew I'd seen it in some movie or TV show or something. Its a line from U.S. Marshals -- Tommy Lee Jones handcuffed Robert Downey Jr's character. RDJ says "Is this guy crazy?!" Joe Pantoliano's character replied "No, but he's a carrier."

(Works really well when talking about crazy ex-girlfriends.)

You said "He's not supposed to be a homicidal psycho." I said "if not, he must be a carrier." Basically means, "yes, he is."

Chernobyl Diaries - 6/10. Nothing ground breaking here, but some interesting scares. Not sure they went with the hand held camera look, since it was pretty minimal (no extreme bouncing around for the most part) and it could have easily been shot traditionally. I suppose they felt it would give some of the scenes a bit more realism, but I thought it had little effect.

It's also one of those movies where you want to shut off your logic circuits.

I'm not too much of a stickler on source accuracy or how closely it follows a comic but I just didn't think it played well as a comic book movie in general. There were elements that I liked about it but overall it just didn't have the same vibe as it's prequels or much any other comic book based movie to me.

I agree that it didn't have the same vibe. I haven't read a comic book in over 20 years so maybe I wouldn't even know (past the basics) what a good comic movie should be.

I'd like to say ''you'd love Star Trek II'' but then sometimes when you haven't grown up watching a certain thing you're just not going to see the appeal when you watch it later on. Kinda like me with Taxi Driver or Serpico. They're recognised as classics but I wouldn't watch them again.

I've never took the time to sit down and watch a star trek either , it probably sounds even worse than using the word stupid and trying my hardest not to sound high and mighty it always just seemed a bit " geeky and cheesy " to me. For the record I'm not a star wars fan either.

I did really enjoy the remake though with no knowledge of the original movies or series. I was recently interested in watching the star trek movie though with Tom Hardy playing the villain ( not sure which that is , it might even suck ). Where would be the best place to start where I could actually comprehend what's going on and hopefully a movie that isn't so dated as to put me off ?.

Funnily enough though A dev I didn't exactly grow up with Taxi Driver but it's now one of my favorite movies. I really think Taxi Driver is the type of movie that needs watching a few times over a few years to fully appreciate what it is ( simply because it's not the type of movie you can watch every week :lol ). The first viewing with so much of a following behind it is bound to not be up to expectations.

Anyway recent movies watched..


Cowboys and Aliens - 6.5/10 - Fun and the last battle scene was a great watch , not something I could watch often though.

Black Death - 5/10 - Little weird this one and I was surprised when it ended , I suppose I expected more. I got through it though and managed to enjoy it. A question for anyone who has seen this movie.
Spoilers.

When the group of soldiers with Sean Bean leading them wandered across the group of hooded men whipping themselves and marching why were they punishing themselves this way ?. Had they been forced to renounce god by the village ?. I suppose it wasn't really covered.

Lockout - 5/10 I can definitely enjoy sci fi movies in this vein but this was average at best. Snow as a character was alright but the whole film was just weak , a story that'd be shown a thousand times before and other than Peace and Joseph Gilgun ( who just barely made it tolerable ) the entire cast was forgettable imo.

That was Star Trek Nemesis. The 4th and last Trek film with Captain Picard and so on. As somewhat of a Trek fan (though not the biggest one you'd ever find) I find it hard not to recommend you watch at least the first 3 Next Generation movies but you could probably get away with just watching Nemesis if you're curious about Tom Hardy being in it.
The best film with that cast is the second one, Star Trek: First Contact, its got the Borg in it. I'm personally fond of their first aswell, Star Trek Generations, but it seems to be popular to hate that film. The 3rd film with Picard and company - Star Trek: Insurrection - is probably Star Trek at its most nancyboyish.

Black Death - 5/10 - Little weird this one and I was surprised when it ended , I suppose I expected more. I got through it though and managed to enjoy it. A question for anyone who has seen this movie.
Spoilers.

When the group of soldiers with Sean Bean leading them wandered across the group of hooded men whipping themselves and marching why were they punishing themselves this way ?. Had they been forced to renounce god by the village ?. I suppose it wasn't really covered.


Yeah, it isn't covered at all actually, but I like to think it has indeed something to do with the village and the witchcraft and stuff that is going on there. Perhaps they renounced God and tried to repent by chastising themselves.

Have to say though that I really liked this film. At first I thought it'd be another hack'n'slash medieval flick, but it had way more story than I expected. The atmosphere is harsh and grim and I really liked the ending as well.

Not your usual happy end.

I'm just not a fan of zombie comedies (though I love zombie movies in general) nor am I a fan of teen romance movies which is kinda what this was, a zombie/teen romance comedy. Don't get me wrong, I didn't hate the movie and it had a few funny moments but it's just not my kind of movie. However if your set on seeing it, go for it as it seems to be getting good reviews and my friends who went to see it with me enjoyed it.

And now, I finally got to see it in it's beautiful Blu Ray transfer. And what a amazing looking film. It looks like a modern film, done up in the style of a 60's film. It just looks so damn interesting. Especially in the cockpit stuff.

It would be there, if not for some stupid choices, acting and some lame mutants.

The scene where Charles jumps in the water after Eric, the line delivery is redicilous and almost laughable.

"Who are you?!?"
"My name is Charles Xavier, calm your mind!!"

That whole scene where Eric and Charles finally meet is a bit beyond awkward.

Angel is about as lame as mutants come, and the whole idea that one week of training made Beast a better fight then Azazel. :dunno

The Fourth Kind - ?

I couldnt finish it. I heard so many good things about it that it was creepy and interesting. I was bored out of my mind. They spun it as being a true story and spliced in actual footage (apparently) of the interviews. I just dont beleive it, but regardless I was so bored I eventually just got up and turned it off. I rarely do that, and I'll sit thru some horrible crap.

That movie is awful in every possible way. It's like, no one can make a good Alien Abduction movie these days. The concept is ripe with incredibly creepy ideas. Such as Alien crossbreeding, body horror, and really intense psychological torment.

But no. They make it into a silly generic "insert monster here" movie.

Totally agree, this is the best Alien Abduction movie in my opinion as well. As for the "real" footage goes I knew it was fake, it just didnt make sense. Creepy it wasnt creepy at all. Again I was so bored out of my mind that anything creep was just like "oh i should open my eyes up enough to see whats going on" then its over.
