I thought it was a bit too slow and boring for me, and I don't think the Mad Max comparison was fair...although the first Mad Max was a bit boring, but it had cool cars and some action towards the end. Anyway, the actors weren't the problem, and Robert Pattinson was good, well...he wasn't bad. He has potential, I'll say that. It's the type of film you watch once.

Well it's a movie about a war that was unpopular with the Hollywood crowd to begin with, directed by one of the few openly right wing people left in the industry. Some people just get their political boner raging so hard that they can't sit back and enjoy a movie. I am glad that my mind doesn't function like that...it would drive me insane.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2. 7/10.

I'm not a fan of Jamie Foxx (although he was awesome in The Great White Hype) but I really liked him in this film. I wasn't expecting him to be as nerdy & awkward as he was at the start of the film, so that was a welcome surprise. & as Electro he was pretty bad-arse. I'm really not sure why Paul Giamatti or the character he played was even in this film. So, that seemed rather pointless & a complete waste of screen time.

But, overall, while not as good as the first, I still liked this as I think that Andrew Garfield still made for a very likeable Peter Parker/Spider-Man & Emma Stone was still equally likeable as Gwen Stacy.

Gone Girl Spoilers:

Everything in this movie screams set up - there's no surprise to that at all. The fact that the detective can't see it gets beyond ridiculous, and we're supposed to believe that the cops won't check out her story at all? First, they like the husband for it because it's a crime of passion, bludgeoned to death in the kitchen. Poorly cleaned up - so poorly that the murder weapon is left laying in the fireplace, barely burned. Then, when they find the stuff in the shed, he's suddenly plotting to kill her? And how could they even be so stupid as to think they'd interrupted him burning the diary - he was in the kitchen when they came in, and never went down to the basement. He had to turn off the furnace to not burn it. Why would he do that before it was incinerated?

Worse, our evil genius seems to make plenty of mistakes. She has everything plotted to every detail, complete with sticky notes on a calendar (which conveniently disappears somewhere along the line), and yet only has a single source of money, what she has on her in her money belt? She has to turn to her ex, and then sets him up - except, either she was smart enough to hack into his security system and remove all traces of them coming to the house, her completely willing, or the cops are once again so stupid that they wouldn't even check the recordings...although they are a big part of her excuse for killing him. Even if she did erase them, that would be another huge red flag that something was wrong with her story. She's even seen by multiple people - the people that rob her, the guy at the casino - and yet when the 'murdered' wife reappears to huge fan fare on tv, nobody recognizes her? Any episode of NCIS or Elementary has a tighter plot.

This reminds me of a movie (and I'm betting the book too) where someone came up with this cool idea for an ending, and wrote backwards. When things didn't quite fit, they merely glossed over it, more interested in creating the final scene than getting there cleanly.

So yea, it was entertaining, there's some solid acting, but the plot is poorly executed overall.

Quite the contrary. Whenever Eastwood poops out a new movie Hollywood, critics, etc., fall all over themselves to give him high as the sky praise. I personally haven't ever seen an Eastwood directed film that I've ever liked and even though Eastwood's politics are right-wing most of his stories can be said to have more of a left wing bend to them.

Wasn't it supposed to look staged? By him? Also, the weapons wasn't supposed to be burned, just lying there.

The detective tried to question her story but the police wouldn't let her, because the police wanted to close the case ASAP before keep looking incompetent.

Didn't the detective mention how odd the whole diary thing was?

You may have a point about the money though, but isn't it safer to keep your money with you, hidden at all times?

The camera part was a problem for me too, that one is indeed a big PH

I may have to downgrade my score to a 7 as well, hmmmm, that's a 1st.

Really enjoyed it! I only saw the first one once in the theater when it first came out, so it had been a while for me outside of that world. Didn't enjoy it that much, which made me drag my feet in watching part 2. But I liked this one much much better than the first. Looking forward to the third one now.

Fury.
Saw it late last night. I enjoyed it, but not as much as I was hoping.
It was difficult for me to believe in Shia Labeouf's character. His accent was really forced and I'm use to seeing him play a goofball character. But that's my fault for not being able to watch this with a clean slate. Jon Bernthal did a great job. He seems to be very good at playing an @ss hole. :lol

One scene that struck me as being weak... (spoiler alert)

They roll into a neighborhood. War Daddy (Pitt) and Norman (the scared young soldier) find 2 beautifully dressed women. I mean, they were dressed in bright colors and seem to be from a different time or place compared to everyone else in that same town. Furthermore, they didn't appear to be as resistant or scared as you would expect them to be considering their town was right in the middle of a battlefield. They honestly looked like they were ready for a party. :lol

But I understand the purpose of that scene. It's a turning point for the young soldier.

At any rate, the action was intense, and I enjoyed the special effects, but I can't see myself re-watching this again. 6/10.

Zoe Bell was the only character I liked in the whole thing, and even then she a) stole someone's valuable car to perform a dangerous stunt with, and b) left her friend alone with a potential rapist.

Someone tell Quentin that while not all films need likeable characters, even flawed and morally-ambiguous characters need something approaching a redeeming feature for the audience to connect with, even if it's just a charismatic personality. They also need to be consistent, which Stuntman Mike certainly wasn't - apropos of nothing turning into a blubbering, whimpering mess over being shot in the arm and encountering some small degree of resistance.

But yes, that final car chase was pretty fantastic.

I loved Death Proof. Easily my favorite Tarantino film followed by Basterds.

I don't care if the characters are likeable or not, just watching them interact with one another is very entertaining. That's what Tarantino does best. He could make the most boring and uninteresting characters have a conversation that you can't take your eyes away from.

Agreed!

The dialogue felt so natural and very realistic. I also love the vintage look of the first half, then the modern look for the second half. The main cast were great and this was the best I've ever seen Kurt Russell act. Stunt Man Mike is one of my favorite characters of all time.

Evil Dead (2013). 6/10.

A good film that I quite enjoyed, for the most part. I'm not into excessive gore with things like SAW, Hostel, Wolf Creek & the like but having seen the original Evil Dead I was at least prepared for this films bloodletting. But it was still a bit overboard, at times.

The ending came as a big surprise. I did not expect the Ash style character to suddenly sacrifice his own life for his sisters. That kind of blew me away. & although it was cool that the films 'big bad' (thanks, Buffy) made an appearance at the end I can't help but think that they could've given us something a little bit better that what we actually got. I thought that it was pretty lame. However, I did like the death it got as it seemed very fitting with the overall tone of the film.

& I'm so glad that I sat through the credits because it was a fantastic surprise to see Bruce Campbell grace the remake with his illustrious presence after the credits had finished rolling. Groovy, indeed, good sir.

I think the reason it feels generic is that it pretty much is training day and end of watch, in WW II. Although I do enjoy those others, I have to say that contributes to the score, to be fair.

Giant Junkyard Shrek Hulks (TMNT 2014) -- 4.75 / 10

Ehh.. I didn't hate it. They got the turtles' personalities right at least. The CGI & mo-cap was pretty good for the most part. Splinter was alright actually. Megan Fox was just herself.. in a yellow jacket. 'Shredder' was more like a Shogun transformer or something. I didn't like the story, or the connection between Sacks, Oneil & Shredder. Lots of wtf stuff in general, & the turtle designs are still as ugly & jarring as sin.

Glad you liked it! I bought it for my daughter and while I still think the movie is great, on my second viewing it felt like it moved too fast, like the pace was too frenetic and tried to throw too many jokes out at every opportunity. Had they slowed it down a little, to let some of the great moments speak for themselves, it would have been one of the best animated films in years.

Still, that being said, I really enjoyed this movie and it is beautiful to look at with a look all it's own.

Oh yeah! I noticed that myself!

This was the second time viewing it, my nieces really love those films but all my Disney films are in sealed condition (for personal reasons), so I had bought them Wreck It Ralph, Frozen, and Nightmare Before Christmas; yet you can only see those for so many viewings. I bought this hoping that they'd get a kick out of it, and everyone loves it.


Some jokes are definitely forced, but overall I enjoyed everything, it's your classic Mexican story, with a pop culture vibe to it. Wouldn't surprise me to hear my nieces ask to see it again today. :lol

Elysium - 8/10

Really cool sci-fi. Loved the grunginess of it. Some of the accents were hard to understand though. Mostly Krugers I think Australian accent and Spyders, with Jodie Fosters sounding very forced.

Can anyone recommend any other Sci-Fi movies or novels with this kind of semi-apocalyptic grungy sci-fi?

Dredd (2012)
Split Second

You should watch it just for him, it's one of those films that makes the terminal error of having a villain about 1000x more interesting and relatable than the hero.

If you saw it 20 years ago, you probably saw it before the studio got cold feet and removed all the subliminal imagery and binaural sounds the director had laced throughout the film.

Well there you go, I had no idea. I'm fairly sure the last time I did watch it (probably around 1996), it was the newly touted 'remastered' super duper director's cut with extra stuff. Myself & two friends at home in the dark with no distractions. :thud:

Incidentally, I've seen an updated release getting around on DVD that's a 2 disc set with little Linda in scary mode on the front, with kind of a faded green cover. Is that the diluted version you speak of? Must be I guess..

I enjoy RotS for various reasons, such as:

The end in which created the beginning, so Luke given away in Tattooine.

One of the most epic duels, IMO, in Mustafar.

Padmé's funeral literally get me every time. I genuinely feel the loss for Naboo.

The cause of her death and creation of Vader.

Order 66, though I admit some of those Masters died in a ***** way. *cough*Mundi and Plo*cough*

The invasion of the temple.

Literally start of the film is an explosion and the banter between Obi and Anakin, only to see how it ends for them.

Hatred between Dooku and Anakin.

General Greivous.


I mean it's just a fantastic film. To also be fair, I was 11 and thought it was the best thing since ice cream sundae.

Honestly I found all the scenes in the prequels over-choreographed to the point of absurdity. It looks and feels like people going through an elaborate pre-rehearsed pattern, not like a fight at all.

It's got great acting, fantastic utilization of characters, pacing, humor that's natural and it's there to hide lack of substance, social commentary, amazing animation, no wasteful scenes of just seeing no named entities using superpowers (I don't really consider them characters), and multidimensional characters.

There weren't any scenes lingering in my mind or that I "need" to see again, but there was not a second of this movie I did not enjoy! I hope the upcoming Fantastic Four is able to do something similar to this.

I can't argue with that score; I thought it was great throughout! It's up there for me now. I forgot to mention Superman, because I do like that one a lot. For just theatrical releases, I'd go:

1.The Dark Knight
2. Batman Begins
3. The Incredibles
4. The Iron Giant (I'm going to count it!)
5. Mask of the Phantasm
6. The Dark Knight Rises (I know you don't like it, but I still think it's great despite its flaws)
7. Superman the Movie

A Serbian Film - Ok, I kept hearing about this so I looked it up on Youtube and watched a good part of it. Serious question....why do movies like this even have to be made ? You have to wonder about the mental state of whoever makes these types of movies. I'm not even going to attempt to rate this.

It's not really as shocking as it's made out to be. I'd even say that the gore is no worse than the films of Tarantino or even Chan Wook-Park's Vengenace Trilogy. If you're not familiar with recent Serbian history then the allusion is going to be a bit lost on you.

Man, I loved this movie. Call Tom what you will (& I'd agree for the most part), but he's a great actor, & one of my faves - even though I've not seen the majority of his earlier soppy, schlocky, jocky crap movies. He's done some excellent work in the last 20 years.

There are some nitpicks regarding the story, but overall; the tone, the look, feel, tech, art design, cinematography, score, soundtrack - all that's a 10 really. It didn't help that I watched an inferior copy, but it doesn't matter.

While Tom Cruise is entertaining to watch and has a lot of Charisma, I dont think I'd call him a good actor. Every movie I've seen him in, I come away feeling I just saw Cruise being Cruise, rather than acting tfit the role, the role was merely adjusted to fit his personality.

A really great actor disappears into the character, and sometimes you forget that actor is playing him. I've never felt that way watching Cruise.

Khev
02-05-2015, 10:07 AM
Except that even though you're always watching Cruise you're still watching him emote in the most genuine of manners. Yes he always has the same basic personality but you always believe that Cruise himself is truly inhabiting whatever world is appearing on screen. And that IS the mark of a very good actor, IMO.

I expect actors to do one of two things:

1. Portray a different persona

2. Be very authentic in the same persona

Guys like Cruise, Gibson, Ford, SLJ, Pitt, etc., do a great job with the second one.

Haven't seen the whole film myself yet, but after reading some interviews with the director and lead actor, it does seem to be making a statement about the realities of life in modern-day Serbia.

To me, constantly and consistantly giving a performance (however sincere it might come off as) in the same persona, is not acting. It's really just Cruise being Cruise, however likeable he may be.

Pitt can embody different characters well enough, SLJ was quite different in Jungle Fever and Ford has given us a taste in Mosquito Coast of what he is capable of. But doing the same thing over and over is more akin to being a one trick pony. However much we might like the "Tom Cruise character", it's not acting if it's all he ever does.

In my book, the closest Cruise ever came to "acting" was Magnolia, for me, I have to be in the right mood to see that performance, as sometimes it comes off as hammy and the weakest part of the movie, and other times (less often) it works.

Get Shorty. 8/10. Clever movie. Plot is intricate enough to keep my interest. And Chili Palmer is one of the greatest character names ever conjured. I like Elmore Leonard's stuff. I need to read a few of his books. I've read part of Pronto (his first Raylan Givens book), but nothing else. The mobster getting a massage at the beginning of Get Shorty (Jimmy Cap) is the same mobster that sent the hitman (Tommy Bucks) that got gunned down by Raylan in the first episode of Justified. Leonard's stories apparently intersect a lot.

Killing Them Softly. 6/10. Eh. Pitt was pretty good. Plot wasn't that interesting, though. Almost too straightforward. Could've used a twist or two. Gandolfini was interesting ... badass hitman turned useless drunk.

The Conjuring - 3/5

It's a movie that's based on the accounts of self-proclaimed demonologists, Ed and Lorraine Warren; more specifically, about their experiences with the Amityville house. The movie had a fairly decent plot, and the acting was alright, too. The family who moved into the Amityville house were terrorized by demonic forces, that originated from Satanic rituals involving human sacrifices, from the previous owners. The Warrens were then invited to help document and cast out the evil spirits.

I love good haunting movies, but I felt that things got waaayyy too dramatic towards the end. It's like the director was trying to up the ante on The Exorcist, and it ended up looking honky and forced. But, it's still a decent horror film if there's nothing else showing on TV. Just don't watch it late at night.

You could say that about a bunch of iconic actors.

I know what you mean, but he's adjusted to different roles too. Born On the 4th Of July was one of his best film roles, & while he did wear the good old American boy hat for a portion of it, his post war vet performance was excellent. No slick boy Tom going on there at all..

Wrong Turn VI - 26/100 I wonder why I even bothered.

Will be watching Gone Girl, Nightcrawler and Whiplash. Should be much more satisfying.

Fury - 10/10 Damn good movie.

http://i.guim.co.uk/static/w-460/h--/q-95/sys-images/Guardian/Pix/pictures/2014/6/17/1402996320899/Fury-008.jpg

Bleak and raw, but still tasteful, gritty yet refined visuals

Interesting characters, great performances by everyone, effective character development, intense/kinetic action and emotional moments, great score and perfect sound design and mix, you can practically feel the ricocheting shots as you hear them whistle past you.

Dat scene where the German soldier finds Machine below the tank and doesn't rat him out...

That was some very satisfactory reward for Machine.


David Ayer definitely knows how to handle team dynamic, I can't wait to see what he'll do with comicbook characters.
:lecture In regards to that spoiler:

How likely do you think that would happen?
Especially after seeing hordes of your dead brothers on the floor surrounding the tank?

I get what you mean, but I thought to myself after that scene, "There's no way!".

It's the same situation when he was asked to kill that German guy, he wouldn't do it, it's what Machine would've done in that same situation, even within the Nazi ranks there were folks who were just following orders, just like Machine, I don't think it was unlikely at all.

That guy could've been Machine right before all the **** went down.

I thought the dinner scene when the other guys show up was awkward and I didn't get it. Why was Pitt taking so much **** from them? They were always very respectful towards him.

That was the only scene that didn't make too much sense to me.

The Exorcism Of Emily Rose -- 7 / 10

It was on TV, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered. Decent film actually - except for the usual Hollypoop effects that ruin some of the plausibility of the story for my money. That aside - an interesting story really; was she crazy, or sick, or both - or.. yeah. Good cast, good performances, but the music & score were jarring - sure, that's the point, but the overblown nature of the score at times just annoyed me.

Hmm. After saying how uncomfortable I find this kind of subject matter, funnily enough I've watched a few 'supernatural' themed films lately.

All on TV though. :lol

Agreed. It's only the second time I have seen it since it first came out, and it's certainly not an easy watch. Clint is on top form both from a directorial and actor perspective.

Million Dollar Arm - 8/10 No matter what Jon Hamm stars in, all I see is Don Draper.
Absentia - 7/10 Decent indie-horror flick considering it was made with a 70K budget.
Third Person - 6.5/10

Probably more but I can't remember. :lol

I didn't think many people really hated Edge of Tomorrow - it failed at the box office more because of a really shoddy advertising campaign than anything else.

People don't hate the film, because most people didn't even see it. Critics loved it, but there were several reasons why a lot of people didn't see it.

1. The trailers and the marketing sucked. It's a fun film, but you wouldn't know that from the marketing.

2. They changed the name from "All you Need is Kill"...which is cool and badass, to something generic and forgettable, "Edge of Tomorrow."

3. Oblivion which came out the previous year and most people thought this film looked similar, and not in a good way.

4. It's a Tom Cruise film...and "hating" Tom Cruise because of his personal beliefs seems to be the "cool" thing to do nowadays.:dunno

Not to bring religion into the thread, but Cruise is also a Scientologist, possibly the very face of Scientology. Not only do they believe in some truly bizarre ****, they can be very hostile if you're critical of their beliefs or if you try to leave the Church. If Scientology isn't a cult, it features many of the same characteristics.
