The Evil Dead (1981).

As a kid I was always terrified of this movie but viewing it now I find it intentionally hilarious and over the top. To my surprise I found out there are basically two types of audiences for this movie- those who view it as a comedy and those who view it as a truly scary flick.

I give the The Thing reboot a hard time but it's actually got a solid plot and I really do love the end titles that tie Lars and the dog into the opening of the original. Easily the most genius thing in any horror reboot/w/e you want to call it. But I just can't help be furious when I see the actual movie cgi effects vs what amazing, absolute top of the line practical effects they cgi'd over and flattened out to the point of looking fake. Especially when what's his face splits open on the chopper and then the cgi of the chopper itself going down. Looks really bad there. They also CGI'd over the pilot at the end of the movie with that weird out of place core thing on the ship. They rushed the last Sander creature in instead and you can tell because his face looks really fake on it.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 8/10 Still prefer IM1 by just a little but this is easily the best looking Marvel flick.

Jameson Rook
12-10-2014, 10:08 AM
Yeah, I just can't get past the CG effects of the Thing prequel. It looks horrible, with no weight to the creatures at all. I'll give it another shot when it's on TV someday.

As far as remakes go, you could do a lot worse than Evil Dead. And The Thing prequel, while unnecessary, was still a pretty good movie.

There are basically two types of audiences for this - those who view it as a comedy and those who view it as a truly scary flick.
:wave

It's old, low budget and trashy... but the atmosphere of fear and horror was intended and still there.
Even quasi-sequel, while being less serious, is incredibly creepy and scary.

Of course guys - I'm not even implying that any of you celebrate that stuff in any way. :lol

I just can't stomach those sorts of films, honestly - even the well made 'ghost' ones. I find them completely unsettling. I'll never watch The Exorcist or Hellraiser again. Both very good films, but not something I want to experience twice.

I own the original NOES, & to me that's kind of where I draw my personal line. Yeah, there's some of the aforementioned in there, but it's such a good all round film that it doesn't just hit you in the face with disturbing **** every two minutes, & I not only respect Wes Craven's talent in making it, but I actually really dig the movie.

I also like Werewolf films - & again, there's a little of the dark arts (for lack of a better phrase) peppered in certain ones, but not to the point where it drives the narrative or visuals etc. I've seen a lot of horror films over the years; the good, the bad - & the plain ugly. I've been there now, & I've no need to revisit some of them ever again. :lol

Unbelievable acting especially Redmayne. Felicity Jones was also phenomenal but Redmayne takes the whole thing.

A very lush photography and orchestral scores make a certain delivery of the film, very fitting for the love story IMO.


I'll pretty much say, worth the view if interested in a love story, certainly does not interact with Hawkings work.

Premise is cool and I like some of the visuals but it just didn't do it for me. Even Ford was a bit boring to watch. Some of the philosophical points were fantastic, I will admit that. I'll probably try it again in a few months or years and see what it feels like then.

PoP: The Sands of Time - 7,5/10

Still love it.
Just wish it had twice as much freerunning and focused on Dastan and Tamina.
Even tho I like Sheik Amar as Seso... they were absolutely unneeded.

So weird. I remember this coming out mainly because of the HT figure but never saw a commercial or trailer. Never heard anyone mention since, ever. Never saw it on dvd in a store or online shopping, on netflix, never seen it reviewed in here til now. :lol Will have to check it out. Kind of reminds me of that movie Evolution. Just sort of fell off the face of the Earth.

Merely falling off the face of the Earth is insufficient a demise for that movie. If movies can burn in hell, I hope that one is getting special attention in he deepest darkest pit of Hades. ;)

Wow, I hated that movie. But since you never saw a review for it...

No, I suppose not. I can somehow buy Ebenezer Scrooge turning into a loving, generous man in the original but it was either the modern setting or Bill Murray just being an even bigger jerk than Scrooge himself that made it a jarring, out of character moment. The transition from self-absorbed jerk to a decent man seemed better done in Groundhog Day.

Last Action Hero - 6/10
I liked this movie. It was fun at first but I felt it dragged near the end.

Truman Show - 6.5/10
I expected more from this. I felt as though I'd seen the whole thing without ever having seen more than trailers and TV promos from back in the day.

Deckard
12-14-2014, 06:53 PM
Well the difference in Scrooged, is that like the original, it takes a lot of life changing events to make Scrooge realize how he's lived. But in Scrooged he's on television and appealing to thousands or even millions of people and is trying to convince them he has genuinely had a life altering experience and isn't just an actor in this show they're all already watching.

That may have been the best video game movie.
So far it IS the best VG film adaptation. Let's hope 'WarCraft' will say something about that in 2016. :lol


Still underwhelming and forgettable compared to the source material but not horrible.
As great TSoT game was and still is, it's too short and simplistic story to base a movie on.
Also, since Mechner was involved, there was much influence from original Apple/DOS games.
At least it wasn't based on 'Warrior Within'!

Sadly this movie hasn't aged all that well considering it was a TV movie, but I still consider it my favorite version of the classic story. Patrick Stewart is just plain awesome in the role.

Interstellar 10/10 2nd screening and I really want a 3rd one, this 2nd screening confirmed that the claims of bad writing and plut hulz I've read are reduced to a couple over-dramatized dialogue lines and poor comprehension from the audience.

Top notch acting, crafty world setting, fantastic script, moving message, yep.

And the visuals, **** me, the visuals.

Nolan showed deep understanding of complex physics concepts, this movie provides educational encouragement and it should be appreciated for that.

Aside from the mentioned couple of lines that are a bit over dramatic, my only problem keeps being the sound, sometimes it was just too loud, but I'm sure it's my local theater, no reason why it can't be properly EQ'd.

Lots of people have a big problem with the excess of humor in the movie, not me, the movie has bigger problems to worry about than the humor, the humor actually takes your mind off those problems, as a major Thor fan I'm not happy how Thor's lore is being depicted in the MCU, but Hemsworth sure makes a good Thor.

It's not nearly as bad as they're making it out to be, it's not IM3, but sure as hell it's not a gem either, let's just say it's an unimaginative use of Marvel Studios' formula.

Boy was I wrong. :lol

Marvel seems to have found that balance for when to use humour in their films from what I've seen personally - & I own the first THOR film & quite like it, but I get that maybe this time it missed the mark. However, I guess before I start asking about flaws, inconsistencies, plot holes etc, I should just watch it once.

why i hate it: cliche bad guy, cliche story, cliche plan to get away... visually the movie is nice but the story is so cookie-cutter, I know the comics might be like that but as a movie alone it felt like some producer was checking off points from a studio list.

if you take out the special effects and the costumes you have the most cliche story possibly made. i understand that can be said for a lot of other superhero movies but this one felt like such a waste of money and time for me. worse than Iron man 2 or 3

the only reason to watch it is for Loki

Prometheus - 10/10

I really thought that this was going to be a horrible movie, given all of the negative reaction from Alien fans over the years. But, I finally had the chance to watch it on Blu last night, and I thought it was intelligently written. The philosophical questions about human origin were left unanswered, and instead, it's up to the viewers to formulate their own ideas and theories. I can appreciate that the film didn't spoon-feed all of the answers, and it actually required viewers to think after watching it. Although I'm very much looking forward to a sequel, there doesn't even need to be a Prometheus 2, in my opinion.

The film was visually stunning on Blu, and the surround sound quality was phenomenal.

They didn't "need" the cave painting to find the planet, hence the fact that they located it with their own technology. :slap

The cave painting gave relevance to this specific planet/solar system. They had no reason to pay attention to that area before seeing the cave painting, that doesn't mean they were unable to find it without the cave painting.

The most massive and expensive space flight in history of mankind, the crew of which consisting of incompetent amateur scientists/military/pilots, need to find a planet by using a prehistoric painting on a wall. You are saying that such a plot is okay for an ambitious sci-fi film?

Well, Weyland was a rich old guy, close to death, and he obvious had a trillion dollars to burn on a wild goose chase for immortality. Rich people do crazy things with their money...

He could have spent more, for better hired help, though.

Prometheus - 10/10

I really thought that this was going to be a horrible movie, given all of the negative reaction from Alien fans over the years. But, I finally had the chance to watch it on Blu last night, and I thought it was intelligently written. The philosophical questions about human origin were left unanswered, and instead, it's up to the viewers to formulate their own ideas and theories. I can appreciate that the film didn't spoon-feed all of the answers, and it actually required viewers to think after watching it. Although I'm very much looking forward to a sequel, there doesn't even need to be a Prometheus 2, in my opinion.

The film was visually stunning on Blu, and the surround sound quality was phenomenal.

I loved this movie!

They didn't "need" the cave painting to find the planet, hence the fact that they located it with their own technology. :slap

The cave painting gave relevance to this specific planet/solar system. They had no reason to pay attention to that area before seeing the cave painting, that doesn't mean they were unable to find it without the cave painting.

And yeah, characters made dumb decisions and weren't as smart as they could have been. Whoopdie******in doo.

Without bad decision making, every horror movie would be 5 minutes long.

Ethereal voice in house says "Get Out!" Smart family leaves immediately, movie ends.

Couple sees hitchhiker on road, decides not to pick him up, movie ends.

Scientists discover life while exploring planet With robotic rover, decide contact unwise without further study, movie ends.

I do appreciate / like some of the classics like the original Halloween & NOES etc. I just can't handle the occult / demonic stuff - at all.

One of my faves though, is 'Phenomena'; the 1984 Dario Argento film with Jennifer Connelly as the title character. It's a ****ing strange movie, but it instantly struck a chord with me the first time I saw it, so I bought the 30th anniversary release with the original poster art & other stuff like a booklet & giant poster.

I can see why it has a 95% rotten rating, but I personally didn't like this movie. Good actors, interesting story, but the way the director made this movie is just WEIRD, like he made it for the sake of being weird.

4/10 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

It is EXACTLY what you would expect a Michael Bay TMNT movie to be. Everything is over the top and just silly which might be ok, but the dialogue and jokes are just so corny, its like its aimed at 10 year olds. Shredder is pretty cool though, may be the only reason I would want to watch the second one...

It has scarred me for life.

I must admit that I can do a few of the spirtiual horrors, but I have to be super careful as to what. I bought Evil Dead remake, and I can't bring myself to play it. Same goes for conjuring. As for things like demonic based and what not, yeah I'm good. I'd say it's cause I'm Catholic, but some of that **** just creeps me out to the max.


I just saw Texas Chainsaw with Alexandra Daddario :drool:drool, so I can handle that. All the other stuff I'll gladly pass. Thank you! :lol



As to stay on topic:

Iron Man 2 - 8/10

I enjoy this film. Probably not for the right reasons. Reasons? Well I like the fact we got a War Machine, I enjoyed the little teaser of Cap's shield, Scar Jo was the hottest in this film as Widow over all other ones, and I rather like Mk. V. I know, I know, what the **** is wrong with me? :lol

I went through a stint in 90s of doing a similar thing. I rented as many horror films as a I could to get up to speed with what I'd missed as a kid wandering through video stores & seeing these frightening VHS tape covers & trying to imagine what they'd be like. :lol
.

I have tried this, and it is really hard because most horror movies are awful... for every One good horror movie there are like 30 crappy ones, I swear. When horror movies are good, they are great, they are amazing. But when they suck, they REALLY suck (Makes you want to destroy your Blu Ray player)
I have tried to watch as much as I can but to be honest it is tiring for me. I can forgive a comedy or an action movie for being bad because at least there will be some funny jokes or some cool action scenes.
But bad horror is just bad all around.



So many blood-curdling visuals in that franchise. I mean, who could ever come up with something like this?

well, coming up with disgusting crap is not really that hard, I mean, Imagine I make a thread right now about coming up with the most disgusting and vile creatures or costumes for movies and I am sure if we all got together we would come up with some horrible stuff if we had to (Like if money was involved or if I was giving out a prize for the most disgusting)
Imagine I was giving out a HT figure for the worst creation, most of you wouldn't have a problem coming up with something with the right motivation :lol

the thing that makes him a creep in some aspects is, Who thinks about that all the time? or who goes around life having that stuff int their minds. :lol I don't mean any disrespect to him and his stories and books, but yeah that's f.ed up. Imagine waking up thinking about that stuff and then going to bed at the end of the day still thinking about that.... jeez

But bad horror is just bad all around.Yep.

If there's anything I've learned in the past 2 and a half months of watching over 60 horror films, it's that the horror genre mostly sucks. And I mean really, really sucks. I don't normally rate movies as low as 4-3 out of 10, but yeesh. What's even crazier is how many people rate some of those films 10/10. I'm just going to chalk it up to nostalgia. :lol

There are small things I like in some of these franchises, but overall they're utter crap.

Halloween - The theme song. It's simple, it's eerie, it's catchy. I like it.

Leprechaun - The Leprechaun design and of course the rhyming. "For pulling this trick, I'll chop off your ****!" "Ahhh... lovely golden palaces completely full of riches. I'll rip 'em off and rob 'em blind, those dirty sons of bitches." :rotfl

Hellraiser - Pinhead, the puzzle box, and the whole concept of the Cenobites. "There is no good. There is no evil. There is only flesh."

Friday the 13th - Well...there really wasn't anything redeemable in this franchise. It had lots of hot T&A I guess.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - The scare factor was present in the first film, kinda. I don't think this series has ever been given justice. It has the potential to be truly horrifying.

I think I rated Children of the Corn too low. Might bump it up to 5/10 as the first movie was actually decent. Not really anything in the franchise that stood out to me though.

and I wasn't even thinking about the most famous horror franchises or characters lol.
Movies like Child's play or Leprechaun I give a pass because they are funny or the character is funny at least. so there is at least something entertaining. (horror comedies with me get a pass) depending on how cheesy it is

any time a horror movie made it big there would be at least 30 more trying to get in on the hype. I know what you did last summer is a good example of trying to cash in on the scream hype (urban legends is a good example of that too)
it ends up being the same plot with the same jump scares as always
then you have studios making PG 13 horror movies like Prom Night, when a stranger calls, it's just this big lump of boring predictable movies that they keep making over and over.

I love Jason and I will always love that character. I don't know.... I love the story behind him and the mask. but even half of those movies are almost unwatchable :lol

I kind of gave up after seeing the most famous horror movies and tried to look for the more obscure ones.

Any time someone online suggested another less known movie, it always ended up being terrible. I Gave up on looking for top rated lists for that reason too. I would see people raving about some older horror movie like Dark Night of the Scarecrow or The Church Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things etc. and I would look it up, find it and then go WTF are these people thinking? there goes my evening totally wasted

that's why Jason goes to hell is the way it is. He wanted that "damn hokey mask Out!!!" the movie was pretty much a middle finger to the fans that liked Jason more than the first movie (the studio had to force them to add Jason back in the first screenplay draft)

The Interview - 6.5/10

Had some good laughs, really enjoyed the scenes between Franco and Park. Much better than Pineapple Express,Your Highness, and doesnt fall apart like This Is The End did. Enjoyable for those that like Absurd humor.

8/10 - The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies

Story is very weak, but the action makes up for it. Tauriel and Thranduil are so beautiful.

7/10 - 47 Ronin

Alot better than I thought it would be. Everyone is so typecast, but it works....

Sounds about right, cool movie that actually can benefit from it's remake, unlike the usual efforts of remaking perfect classics.
What would you do better?

Captain America : The Winter Soldier - 6/10

First time seeing it since the theater and tbh it didn't hold up for me. I quite liked it the first time out, and I still think it's an improvement over TFA with the twists and all the espionage. After my first viewing, the main problem I had was with Falcon and his character's abilities w/o the wings being over the top. This time, I just felt really disinterested. There's some glaring issues with pacing and the plot doesn't hold up well to repeat viewings and the whole thing feels a bit like it's trying too hard to be a Jason Bourne film. I also saw Guardians in the interval and I think it's just so good, it makes this look a bit more meh by comparison.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 8.5/10

Great movie. Seen it about 7 times already; wish I had a 3D tv to see it, as I enjoyed the hell out of it in theatres.


The Interview 8/10

Offensively humorous....my kind of movie. Really liked it and I was surprised to enjoy Franco's character over Rogen's.

I would rate TWS a little bit higher than you did but I agree that after watching Guardians, TWS is a bit hard to get through. Theres really never a dull moment in Guardians, TWS has great action (hated all the shaky cam stuff though) but most of the characters and performances just feel flat in comparison.

Captain America : The Winter Soldier 4/10

kinda boring, Samuel is getting really annoying. too many camera cuts in the action scenes, nauseating action scenes. I didn't get surprised by anything. the twists were kind of dumb
I would go as far as to say that the first captain was more entertaining and not as boring

Exactly. I love WS over GotG. Action was great, and overall Cap was great. I love TFA for only the reason of Peggy. WS tops all Marvel films to date IMO.

cap was "great"
but it felt so genetic. this could have been a Bourne movie, a GI Joe movie, a mission impossible movie... change the characters a little bit and add Tom cruise and this would fit as MI 5

The biggest problem for me is the pacing and contrived writing.

Here's a perfect example of both in one scene. The elevator. It's a cool scene that makes sense... at first. Guys keep getting on at floors, Cap realizes he's going to have to fight. Great. The fight goes down, Cap wins. The elevator arrives at a floor where a SWAT team is waiting. Still ok. The assumption is that the guys on the elevator would subdue and disarm cap with the magnetic cuffs and the SWAT team would take him into custody. So he cuts the cable with his shield to get away and the elevator drops til the e-breaks kick in. Still good so far. Here's where it all falls apart.

He stops at complete random between two floors and yet when he opens the top door, another SWAT team is coming down the hall. How did they get there? There isn't any response time, they are just there. Did SHIELD have a SWAT team on all 40 floors right outside the elevator, waiting? Ok, so contrived writing so he has a reason to jump 20 stories out of the elevator. But then it's sloppy again 10 seconds later. He gets up from the fall and a corrupt SHIELD agent watches him on a monitor run into the parking garage as he says "lock down the parking garage." Literally the very next shot is Cap blasting out of the garage on his bike before the ramps close shut, yet somehow he's had time to change into his uniform? Literally no time goes by, the guy gives the order to close the ramps, the next shot is them closing, yet somehow in that mili-second, Cap stripped out of his civvies, got into the uniform, got his gloves on, his boots strapped up, his helmet and chin strap, and started his bike and made it to the ramp. It just feels way disjointed and cheap from Marvel who have so much experience at this point. Like an exec saw it and just insisted he had to be in uniform when he takes down the jet. And then in the next shot, he's back in his civvies again.

Not leaving enough of a window for events to make sense (pacing) + contrived writing purely out of convenience. It's all over this movie.

The movie also lacks a strong, straight up villain. Zola totally ****s HYDRA and ruins 40 years of subversion. Winter Soldier is too tragic and torn and barely fleshed out. And Pierce never really does anything quite sinister enough to make him really vile. The ending is a bit paint by numbers too, fight on a giant flying thing with big holes in the ground to fall out of and Cap has to sacrifice himself.

It's not awful, I've added it on Blu and I don't do that for every Marvel film(like the first Cap or Thor 2), it's just not as solid as people make it out.

Winter Soldier is the poor man's Bourne Supremacy, and that's...OK. Because it's good enough, it's strong enough, and doggone it, people like it.

This is going to sound like a complete copout, but perhaps the system itself - and those who profit and benefit from said system, and not some chin-stroking uber-baddie, is the villain?

Deckard
12-28-2014, 03:39 PM
Oh, it is. But the System doesn't have a face. When your lining up Batman and The Joker, Iron Man and Mandarin, Spiderman and Green Goblin, Cap and... the System just doesn't have the same ring to it.

Now if they revealed Red Skull was still alive and pulling strings... But now that would be a retcon like fake Mandarin. Sure, it's nice to know he could be there in a future film, but it doesn't improve the previous movie.

I dunno, I find the System as the Enemy much more compelling than one singular, titular, bad guy. Think 1984, or the banality of evil.

Am I the only one that thinks Chris Evans is miscast as Cap?

He has the look, but so far in his 3 appearances he’s never really been able to make me believe he’s a leader. Cap has always had a strong authoritative voice (at least the 616 version did) that commanded respect, Evan’s just comes off as way too nice and passive. Even in The Avengers it just felt way too forced when Iron Man let Cap give the orders.

I guess he’s too old now, but Aaron Eckart was someone I thought more fit to play Cap, Evans just doesn’t do it for me.

I’ve also never read any of the Ultimate Cap stories or anything, so maybe Evans is closer to the Ultimate version or something.

So you prefer the Galactic Empire in general to Darth Vader? SPECTRE is great, but I wouldn't want it led by anyone but Blofeld.

The system can be great. But without someone to put it to work(abuse it, etc.), it's just sort of there. In this movie, that was Pierce. He just isn't as compelling as Weaving's Skull imo.



Am I the only one that thinks Chris Evans is miscast as Cap?.

No, I've been saying it since he was first cast. He's too young(baby faced) looking, can't fill out that helmet, is short, and doesn't project confidence in a fight. (in FF he covered that by talking **** but can't as Cap) In Avengers, he looks like a very mediocre cosplay.
