According to the filmmakers that's on purpose, because it's a prequel. They wanted to show how The Thing got so good at being deceptive, manipulative and sneaky. :wave

It's an advanced being capable of space travel whose natural defense is mimicry. It needed to learn not to expose itself?

Noah: 2 / 10 - If you can get beyond the absolutely silly story line (which is difficult) the writing and sets and special effects don't make it any better. I think they lifted the watchers out of an old Sinbad claymation movie. Preposterous and pretentious (common in Aronofsky's movies). Another turd for Aronofsky in general - I don't know why I give this guy the time of day, I sincerely hate every single thing he's done. He's just a more artsy Uwe Boll.

Transcendance: 7 / 10 (or thereabouts). I thought I was going to hate this one, but the story didn't follow my preconceptions, which was a very good thing.

Cuban Fury: 8 / 10 - loved it. Fun, light, funny, charming. Just the right amount of silly.

The Grand Budapest Hotel: 8 / 10 - if you like Wes Anderson films, this is another gem - If you hate them, you'll likely dislike this one too.

The nature and behaviour of the Thing, to me, has never seemed to fit with the idea of a space-faring intelligent race. I assumed the alien craft crashed on earth as a result of its crew being wiped out by the Thing, not that the Thing itself was the intelligent creature travelling across space.

Caught it too. The first episode is on Amazon Prime for free right now. Haven't watched it since it originally aired. It is hugely 89 Batman influenced and loading with late 90's style with the neon and and awful clothes styles. Horrible dialogue, acting and no common sense from any of the characters. Still a fun episode and the suit looks great.

Danny Elfman did the score, so yeah - definitely had that Burton-esque vibe in that respect.

Because despite being a weak and simple premise for a movie, they made it work. They (everyone involved, including the actors) in fact made it work very well, which is why it's received the acclaim.

I think your being a little harsh on the movie. I'm no Bullock fan, this may be the only movie she was in that I actually enjoyed, and that includes Speed.

I know the idea of any astronaut spacewalking from satellite to space station to space station is absurd, since these objects are nowhere near eachother, but it's one of those thngs that you need to suspend your disbelief on. And I think Cuaron did such an amazing job on a movie that was extremely technically difficult that he accomplished that, at least in my opinion.

I will say that this movie is one of the few that really benefits from 3D, I know it definitely added to my enjoyment of the film.



Now, if you want a Bullock movie that deserves 0 out of 10, that would be The Heat.

Yeah. I saw it in IMAX and gave it a 7/10 but I can't imagine ever renting this for a home viewing. It'd be like buying a board game about riding a roller coaster and expecting the same experience as a trip to Six Flags.

I went into it thinking it would be at least worth a watch and I thought a lot of people who hated on here were crazy... but I was wrong.

Did you watch this on the big screen? I got totally ripped and went along to see it, and found it butt-clenchingly tense and full of space-wonder. It was worth the price of admission for the opening shot alone. I loved it.

In fact I loved it that first time as much as I hated it when I stupidly went back for a second viewing on the small screen. It really is a craphouse movie, but man... that space. It's got space. But yeah, doesn't hold a candle to Apollo 13.

What?

Ok, I've seen some nit-picking, but none of the stuff mentioned in any way detracts from the movie. Neither does watching it on a smaller screen. My main screen is only 55" and I sit a respectable 10 feet away. My sounds system is well above average and that does help, but regardless, the movie was very enjoyable and somewhat immersive in a typical living room setting.

If you don't like it, by whatever degree, that's cool, but it's kind of lame to blame it on otherwise minor suspension of disbelief issues when this movie is no more at fault/egregious than any of the stuff you see in absolutely every movie and TV show:

Cars exploding - they generally don't
Punctured propane/gas tanks exploding
Lighting liquid gasoline with a cigarette
Bullets sparking - no bullet from a hand gun will produce a spark
Hiding behind a car door for protection from a bullet - I can spit through a car door
Holding on to the hood or roof of a car - impossible at any speed except parked/zero
People getting knocked out cold with/by (name your blunt force trauma)
Empty streets during a car chase - endless road - endless runway, you get the idea here
1 to 2 hours of visible elapsed time where no one swears - what planet is this again?

Yes, I know all movies are unrealistic, but this film is portrayed in a serious tone and at the same time, based it's physics on a Warner Bros. cartoon. Nitpicking aside, I just thought it was a bad film.

Really enjoyed it, even though I was watching it on my television the space atmosphere was really captivating. Clooney and Bullock weren’t oscar worthy at all but they did enough to keep the movie entertaining, I didn’t mind them at all, I really didn’t think Sandra was annoying like most people have claimed.

There are some plot conveniences and some moments that require you to suspend your belief a bit, but overall the movie was moving, beautifully shot, and refreshing considering all the reboots and remakes over saturating Hollywood these days.

BUT

I do think this is one of the most overrated movies of last year, how it got nominated for all those oscars other than the technical categories is beyond me. How the hell did Sandra Bullock get nominated for this? Just proves the oscars are a joke. Maybe I would have enjoyed it more if I experienced it in theaters but overall I think this was an entertaining, solid movie, just far from great. I wouldn’t rank high at all on my list of best science fiction movies of all time.

I do think this is one of the most overrated movies of last year, how it got nominated for all those oscars other than the technical categories is beyond me. How the hell did Sandra Bullock get nominated for this? Just proves the oscars are a joke. Maybe I would have enjoyed it more if I experienced it in theaters but overall I think this was an entertaining, solid movie, just far from great. I wouldn’t rank high at all on my list of best science fiction movies of all time.

I definitely agree with that. Exceedingly overrated. And I remembered hearing people saying "the best Sci-fi film since Alien" LULZ :lol

Umm, definitely not.

Apollo 13 is great, I won't bash it, but Gravity is better, Gravity is one of the movies with less physical and scientific inaccuracies if any, included Apollo 13, the biggest inaccuracy and it isn't physical nor mechanical was the orbit of the different space stations, that's about it.

Hair wasn't floating because she had short hair wtf? :lol
You CAN do all the things she did.

The only mechanical inaccuracy I could find was when she used the fire extinguisher, and not because of the extinguisher, but because she traveled in a straight line when she should have done so in diagonal, keeping the same horizontal momentum as the pod, other than that everything is recreated perfectly, which is way more than you can say for ANY other sci-fi movie.

If you think Gravity is too fantastic, you don't have your basic mechanics knowledge in order :lol

Cuarón did an amazing job conveying the sense of dread and hopelessness of being in a lifeless hard as **** environment like space, and Bullock acted exactly how I see a rookie astronaut acting in that same situation, when she got rocketed during the 1st debris rain and was caught in the inertia, spinning uncontrollably I felt I was going to pass out, picturing myself in that exact same situation.

And the FX and sound were mind bending.

So, people who said she was annoying, why? Really, why? Is it because a person in desperation and hyperventilating uncontrollably is annoying? Well duh! :lol

Gravity deserves all the praise it gets imo.

I don’t feel she did anything incredible, she did an okay job at best, I could pick about 50 actresses of the top of my head that probably could’ve done a better job. Usually when I think someone deserves a nomination/win, I can’t really see many other people doing that great a job at that specific role.

However, I don’t think she was horrible, just decent. Anyone that feels she deserved a nomination doesn’t bother me though, I’m just going off my personal feelings. I also thought it was insane she won an oscar for Blind Side. I prefer her in less series roles, drama doesn’t really suit her.

I'm sure you're a smart guy, but I'll take the word of all the astronauts and astrophysicists who have written at length on how many errors there were in that movie.

I think I rated this pretty high in an earlier post, maybe 8/10, possibly 8.5. But it didn't stand up to a second viewing for me, so on reflection, 7/10.

I thought Bullock and Clooney did a very fine job with the terrible writing they had to work with.

(Apollo 13 still holds up in my book as a 9.5/10 movie)

Yeah I'm no scientist, I'm only enthusiast to physics, and this movie holds up to basic physics knowledge scrutiny, that is something very rare for sci-fi movies, not even Apollo 13 fares as well as Gravity in comparison.

I've read a few analyses from real scientists and astronauts and they're not as bad as most sci-fi movies.

The one movie that is immaculate in that department is 2001 and uses a lot of theoretical physics and some fantasy elements, Gravity's sci-fi is less distant to today's technology so it's easier to scrutinize.

Ha ha, I agree, thought the same thing when I watched that movie.

Funny thing is, recently met with some of my relatives that I hadn't seen in years, as a gift they brought me a old pic of my Dad from 1979 (he died in 1982) and looking at the pic I had almost forgotten how much of a "tough Guy" my Dad always appeared to be. Don't get me wrong, he was a great father and I never wondered whether he loved us or not. In a way he kind of reminded me of Eastwood, or maybe a combo of him and Paul Newman or Steve McQueen. To be honest, I just dont think people in my generation, or the ones that have followed really have it in them to be like that, we are just too soft and "in touch" with our emotions, no matter how tough we like to think we are. I look at the picture of that man who has been gone for 32 years now and think, I'd hate to have been in a bar fight with him.

Anyway, it was a cool gift, as most of our family pics were lost in flooding.

On a side note, I also got a kick when I noticed, sitting on the table beside my Father was the old remote controlled Star Wars Landspeeder that used to operate by clicks of a plastic R2.

Sorry for rambling.

No man, thanks for sharing, your dad sounds like he was a proper guy, also, damn that was a relic, I never owned that landspeeder myself, but I had the big Millennium Falcon, god I loved that toy.

I don't think it's about being tough though, it was about just being a proper man, being responsible, respectful and hardworking, you know, give your word and name some value, and that movie portrays "my" generation perfectly, there are obviously people who are not that way, but the majority either self-entitled ignorant whiners, or self-entitled over-educated and over-sensitive whiners :lol and the younger generation is even worse.

Last I heard, the owners of the rights to the franchise aren't talking so a 2nd sequel will most likely not happen.

Matrix Reloaded I thought was pretty good, although the CGI Neo looked BAD. I HATED Revolutions completely, total let down of the conclusion.

I actually love all three movies in the franchise. Believe it or not, my main gripe with Revolutions was that horrible cheesy evil villain laugh Smith did after he took over The Oracle, I don’t know what the Siblings were thinking shooting that scene.

Everything else really worked for me, maybe it’s because I’m a sucker for philosophy, but Revolutions did a great job intertwining all the philosophical metaphors and themes while keeping the movie entertaining and action packed while bring Neo’s journey and the birth, life, death, love, sacrifice, self awareness, and enlightenment themes from the first two films full circle. The Wachowski siblings implemented a variety of religious and philosophical meanings into Neo’s journey that parallels Hinduism, Christianity Buddhism, Socrates etc…into a cool, cyberpunk, science fiction kungfu film.

I think people wanted a definitive, happy conclusion to the trilogy, and the Wachowski siblings ended making something a bit more cerebral. I loved that they didn’t give us a typical Hollywood ending and instead of telling us the end, they kind of let us give our own interpretation of what we think happened. For the Matrix fanatics like myself, its kind of fun, every time I watch the movie I notice something new about it. The main problem though, is that the vast majority of movie goers don’t want to have to watch a movie about 10 times to finally understand it, and gets the answers, so I understand why most people hate the sequels.

I think if most people give it another watch, they still might be disappointed with it but realize these aren’t badly written films. I think the sequels are much better films than 90% of the science fiction/action flicks releasing these days.

I don't get into the analysis crap too much. The only things I find valid is that the Overlook's interior design is pretty odd, but whether it's on purpose by Kubrick, or was to just cut costs on building it. For example, Stuart Ullman's office has a window it in that looks outside, which is completely impossible when in later scenes you see that his window should have a view to the hallway. But these weirdos that think Kubrick faked the Moon landing and put hints about it in the movie really need to move out of their mom's basements.

The flat parts were definitely evened out by that ending barrage of previews for the next 20 sequels, when Seth sits in, then Schmidt is back saying " what contract dispute?' I was laughing so hard I cried. Definitely will watch at least a couple more times when it goes red box.

Did anyone feel any sympathy for the alien towards the end of the movie? I didn't due to the acts previously performed but it's something that crossed my mind upon reflection. Also were the bikers searching for Scarlett's character due to her becoming almost too human? Did she let the guy go out of sympathy who the biker threw into the boot of the stolen car?

So bump up the original's score!

I am not against giving movies a 10 like some folks here, but I do reserve them for only my favorite movies. PotA is definitely in my top 10. I really like Beneath too. Wish they'd filmed its original ending so I could watch that and stop there and only watch the theatrical cut when viewing the whole series. I like the series as a whole, it's just so bleak and depressing. The most uplifting one is also just silly and dumb. It's about as good as the TV series.

I had a kind of sympathy for the fact that this creature seemed to just be doing what it was made to do, and died in the course of trying to become more genuinely human. But that didn't go so far considering how it was responsible for so many deaths. In a sense the fear it felt toward the end seemed like a kind of cosmic retribution. I didn't think she let the guy go, but I didn't really have any other explanation for how he might have escaped, either. I assumed the bikers were tracking her down because she simply went off the reservation, and needed to either be brought back into line or killed in a way that no one would discover the alien creatures among us. One weird thing about this movie was how unsexy all of it is, because of the context, despite the fact that you get snippets of nude Scarlett.

Planet of the Apes ... 7/10. Not bad, but dated. Heston's a bit of an overactor. We're pretty jaded by plot-twists these days, so it doesn't have the impact it once did. And the make-up, while state of the art for the time, now looks like a reasonably good 1960s episode of Star Trek. Looking forward to seeing Dawn, though (is it just me, or did they reverse the titles of the newest two? Should've been "Dawn", then "Rise" ... not the other way around).

Six Days, Seven Nights ... 7/10. I actually rather liked it. Simple plot, but not bad for an adventurous rom com. I'm convinced that the way to do a good romantic comedy is to cast a genuine guys-guy in the lead ... that way, guys actually have somebody they can relate to. Like Ford. Or Butler. Or McConaughey. As opposed to Hugh Grant or Zack Effron or whatever.

King Kong ... 8/10. Good. Great visuals. But about a half-hour too long.

The Rocketeer ... 8/10. I was half-watching this, but seemed pretty solid. Probably ought to watch it again to be sure.

I certainly felt that the alien had made, for the first time, a connection with humanity - as though she'd spent so much time in her human skin that she had grown attached to it (also the romantic encounter with the man who cared for her seemed to play a part). I can't recall whether there was any clear signal as to why she left the city in the first place? I didn't feel as though she 'got what she deserved' though - she was emotionally detached from the value of human life - there was no malice in her luring of men to their deaths. The scene where the woman and husband were drowned in the sea also beautifully conveyed her detachment.

It's been a while since I've watched a movie that has lingered in my thoughts for days afterwards. I liked Scarlett in just about everything I've seen her in, but I thought this was one of her finest roles.

karamazov80
07-22-2014, 06:35 AM
Yeah, I think that role suited Scarlett very well. Back to the first times I saw her in movies (Ghost World, Man Who Wasn't There) I thought she was a compelling actress to watch, but was a bit detached and aloof. That movie also stuck with me. Particularly the scene with the baby you are referring to. *shudder* Nice to see some genuine originality in sci-fi/horror films now and again.

Interesting point about the male lead there. As for the titles, it makes some sense to me. The "Rise" movie is really the prequel, whereas "Dawn" (which I haven't seen yet) will presumably be the actual beginning of an Ape-run country/planet, but we would associate both with the beginning of something. I guess next will be "Day" and then "Dusk" then "Night" or something like that. Though maybe "Dusk of the Planet of the Apes" sounds a bit silly :lol

Royal Tenenbaums: 8.75/10

Love this movie in so many ways. It connected to me on one level when it first came out, particularly the Luke Wilson character, but now watching it as a father, I find more to relate to in the Stiller and Hackman characters. Wes Anderson obviously makes very stylized, quirky movies. But the heart and real attraction of the movies are always the characters that he creates. Something about them, or at least many of them, feels so honest and relatable to me.

Is it common knowledge that she was, in fact, an alien? Naturally that's what I assumed, but I read a comment that she was a robot created by the aliens to lure in the humans.

This is one of the creepiest movies I've ever seen. The score certainly helped make it that, as well as the way the humans were trapped and killed. I keep replaying those scenes in my head. Scarlett's slow backward walk with her hypnotized subject following her through black nothingness, both completely void of emotion. The wading and eventual swimming through the water before being totally submerged, with Scarlett still walking away. Loved that. Seeing that one guy have all of his innards instantly sucked out, with only his skin remaining, was disturbing. It's not a new sci-fi concept or anything, but it felt like it the way it was portrayed in this movie.

One thing I'll say right now: don't take my "scores" that seriously. Generally, I rate things based on how much I enjoy them, rather than how objectively good they are. Chef was a case where it was a somewhat familiar story that was elevated by a great cast and a right script. In some ways, though, it almost felt like a somewhat personal film for Favreau. The story of a creative person being stifled by corporate influence and going in a different direction to get his groove back sounds somewhat familiar, don't you think?

LOL! Yet you still got the joke, good for you.

As for Memento, what are you waiting for? Get to it before a jerk like me ruins the ending for you.

:lol yeah that's cause I just know the basic premise, but I might watch it tonight, I have a marathon planned tonight, Mad Max 1 & 2, Alien 3 (DC) and I'll have to add Memento.

No dude i know, most people rate it how much they enjoyed movies on this thread. I heard a lot of people enjoyed it, that why I wanted to take a look

Okay; I was just saying, if I was to actively critique it, I doubt it'd be a perfect film.:lol

Spiderman - 8/10

The Amazing Spiderman 2 - 5/10

Man did this not hold up on my second viewing. Watching this really made me appreciate the Raimi trilogy a lot more.

It happened the exact same thing to me.

Raimi makes me feel, the other guy doesn't :lol

It's a shame, ASM2 had a lot of potential.

Just wait around for the Spider-Man reboot in a few years. How many more can they possibly do in this series? 1, 2 tops?

2 sounds about right.

I hope we see a Miles Morales movie a la Kickass.

I like Garfield as an actor, but his Peter Parker is just too cool for school, and his Spiderman seems to care more about having fun.

Same here, would love to see Miles make it to the big screen, his run as Spiderman has been awesome. I believe the producers said as long as they’re in control Miles will never show up in any of their films.

Had to look that up on Wikipedia. Not a fan of the concept. In any case, according to this page, Sony don't have rights to that character: http://screenrant.com/marvel-comics-movies-characters-carl-6766/ Might be an oversight, might not. The producers have also said they won't replace the Parker character.

Cross your fingers the movies tank. ;) I'd like to see Spider-man show up with other characters from other series and that's not going to happen without the character back in Marvel's control.

Alien 3 8/10 Terribly under-appreciated film, good script, awesome grim tone, gorgeous mesmerizing visuals, sets and locations, haunting score, Ripley as badass as usual, very interesting characters and story, Charles ****ing Dance, the best Alien death sequence of the whole franchise, great movie.

^Agreed sir. Resented it as a child for killing Hicks but love it as an adult. The last real Alien film IMO.
