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.

I don't think Scientology counts as a religion ...but who knows? Regardless, I really don't care if he believes in the Chupacabras and worships ancient mummified monkey turds. He could drink unicorn blood to stay young for all I care :lol I don't care about actors personal lives, if that was the case I'd probably wouldn't like most actors...I mean look at Johnny Depp, he still dresses like it's 1987...but I don't care as long as the movie is good. When I watch a film, I just want to be entertained and like the characters, not the actors, but that's just me.

Now the day he goes crazy an kills a bunch of people, then I'll probably won't watch his films....maybe :lol

Yep...... Wotw was god awful

I thought Oblivion sucked also, his best film imo was collateral

I don't like his films because of how nutty he is, but mainly because they all suck, for every good movie he had made, he had three terrible ones to go with it

According to wikipedia, Scientology is legally recognized as a tax-exempt religion in the United States, South Africa, Australia, Sweden, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal and Spain.

Most of Tom Cruise's detractors dislike him for his belief in Scientology. Some dislike him for his antics in public. I don't dislike him, per se. It's just that I don't find most of his movies from the past decade as engrossing as his earlier stuff.

I ordinarily don't concern myself with an artist's political or religious beliefs. They very rarely keep me from enjoying his or her work. For example, Mel Gibson and the Mad Max movies and Braveheart.

They can however inform and shape an artist's work. For example, Mel Gibson and The Passion of the Christ.

At that point it is kind of depending and exclusive. I mean when "Son of God" came out last year, I doubt everyone was roaring to see it. My mother, decided to give it a go, and like I said, pretty exclusive. I think maybe 10 people were there too.

I do like your use of Mel, it is pretty accurate, but I mean Edge of Darkness came out a few years after Passion of the Christ, and man, did that not stop him from being a cliche 80's star (or Expendables 3).

I never saw it, so I couldn't say one way or the other. That's beside the point. The guy who played The Man With No Name was in a "chick flick." Wrap your head around that. :lol

"The Bridges of Madison County is a 1992 best-selling novel by Robert James Waller that tells the story of a married but lonely Italian woman living in 1960s Madison County, Iowa. She engages in an affair with a National Geographic photographer from Bellingham, Washington, who is visiting Madison County to create a photographic essay on the covered bridges in the area. The novel is presented as a novelization of a true story, but it is in fact entirely fictional. However, the author has stated in an interview that there are strong similarities between the main character and himself.

The novel is one of the bestselling books of the 20th century, with 50 million copies sold worldwide."

Locke 9/10 I keep thinking about this movie. It's the most I enjoyed a film released in the past few years. Although, I have not watched any of the great movies that came out last year, other than Grand Budapest Hotel. It seemed like 2014 was an amazing year for movies. I get my new movies from the library, so I have to wait on a long waiting list.

Anyways, when I previously said about certain movies not being what I usually want in a film, that does not apply to Locke! I love films that are confined to one space. Stuff like Rear Window, the Conversation, and the Sunset Limited are my jam!

Terminator - 8/10

Terminator 2 - 7/10

Wow, T2 does not hold up well. I haven't seen it in almost five years I think, and always regarded it as an excellent film, but not anymore. The whole thing just felt...unnecessary. People hate on T3 for the cheesy Arnie lines but that definitely started in T2. "I need a vacation" really? Where the hell did he pick that up? It wasn't even funny, it was just uncomfortable and came out of nowhere.

Arnold being the good guy, the new Terminator being some flashy liquid-metal construct (How is that even possible? Why did no one mention how to kill it?), the out-of-place cheesy dialogue, etc. I think all of that made the movie feel more like a gimmick.

It can if it has a large lever loop, which you can modify, like they in the film and other films like True Grit and The Rifleman. So yes, a Winchester 1887 can do that.

I actually think Miles Teller stole the show, J.K. Simmons was good but all he really did was curse a lot. Teller gave a much more dynamic performance, I think he and Gyllenhaal were snubbed this year.

Yea T2 gets a little worse every time I watch it, it's starting to show its age but I still think it's a 9/10. A lot of the dialogue and humor just sounds weird and doesn't hold up right now, most of that mainly from Edward Furlong. But still the action holds up, the T-1000 is still one of the best movie villains ever, Arnold being the "good guy" was a nice twist, and the story was very satisfying. T1 is definitely the better movie though in my opinion.

Oh man I'm laughing so hard right now. :lol This is the danger of putting such specific pop cultural references in your movies. "I need a vacation" was the catch phrase for some cruise line that did lots of TV ads in the late 80's here in the States. It was a pretty familiar expression when T2 came out and I remember the entire theater bursting out laughing when he said it.

But yeah, for anyone watching it now going forward it is SO out of the blue and random for him to say. :rotfl

Boyhood - 6.9/10 - I liked the performances from the kids and Ethan Hawke, but I still feel like the movie didn't really have much of a profound point to get across. It was just like watching someone's life or even remembering part of my own childhood. I'm sure that was the point, but still it isn't much of a point for me. If it's wasn't for the ridiculous 12 years of shooting and the acting from the kids and Hawke, then there wouldn't have been anything special here and this movie would've gotten a 2/10

Khev

Boyhood masterfully conveys how quickly a child grows up in front of his/her parents. I can't imagine any other movie ever capturing that by filming different actors of different ages to represent one person. Beyond that the film is also a fantastic "slice of life" picture showing the consequences of choices made by various members of the cast.

I do think that watching this movie after going through some of the life events on screen (marriage, divorce, parenthood, empty nest syndrome, etc.) does give it greater impact but it's also an interesting "seize every moment with your kids" tale for new parents or those who do not yet have children.

The only scene I didn't care for was when the boys were camping out in the unfinished home. I found the acting to be pretty terrible across the board for that sequence. Everything else was superb.

And almost every year that passes in the film has neat pop cultural references to what was really going on at the time. There's even a very ironic conversation about a certain film series that takes place in the mid-2000's that is very amusing to see play out today.

Since the film doesn't do the "2003," "2005," etc., subtitles to tell you when a year passes you really have to key into their movie and song references to figure out which year they're at some of the time. Totally cool.

Yep, the 2002 digital restoration, which is about 30 minutes shorter than the version you posted. 81/100.

I probably didn't enjoy it as many of you do/will, but its impact on cinematic history is immeasurable. Just off the top of my head, I recognized imagery from Frankenstein, Dr. Strangelove, Star Wars (obviously), Blade Runner, Back to the Future and Batman.

There are many more here. Metropolis (1927) - Connections - IMDb (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0017136/movieconnections)

Ender's Game - 1/10

This just isn't my kind of movie. I've never read the book, and I don't intend to. I saw it on HBO yesterday, and I can see how it will appeal to nerdy, teeny-bopper kids who're hooked on RTS games, and have delusions of grandeur. I'm sure they treat this movie like their Bible. It'll also appeal to, large and depressed, forever alone, Gothic women who scrub their black, unwashed clothes in cat hair. In any case, Ender's character is an accurate allegory for the quintessential nerd who shows up in his school's basement (turned anime club) one day, because he needs to show his peers how 1331 he is in EVE Online. There's also a scrawny bully in the basement that he manages to outwit, and crack his brain open. Heck, there's even the one ugly teenage chick who hangs out with the nerds - just like an actual anime club! (please, don't ask how I know of this...).

It's filled with dialog and cliches that you've seen in other movies; other, better, military movies - and I can't emphasize that enough.

However, I'd have to say that Asa Butterfield did a marvelous job capturing the grit and emotional maturity that came from the role. He's seriously the best child actor I've seen in recent memory. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the other kids and their lackluster performances.

As usual, Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley were great in their respected roles as well.

The Wolverine -- 7.5 / 10

I liked it. It wasn't earth shattering, but Jackman as Logan is always a good watch. I thought the story was decent; Japan being the locale for most of it was cool, & the beginning scenes (the bomb) were well done. I liked his little 'side kick' too - she was great, & the Silver Samurai's grand daughter.. so hot. Fighting was great for my money, end fight.. not so much. That Viper chick.. ehh, kinda stupid. All in all, better than the last one. I'll probably buy it.

I've got a bunch to go; ASM2, THOR2, GOTG, CA:TWS, Pacific Rim etc.

I agree, but it actually wasn't as bad as say like Taken or Rambo with this one: He had Willem's character watching over him. In reality he would have died, had it not been for Marcus. The one in that situation that I thought was kind of stereotypical was when Ms. Perkins escaped when she broke her thumb.

Overall though, it actually was solid especially after seeing some of the trivia like Reeve's memorizing the nightclub scene the day of, and he also did it with the flu and running a 104° fever! :horror

Guardians of the Galaxy 7/10- It was fun. However, I thought a lot of the humor was forced, and needlessly put at times to alleviate tension that was never there. Then again, maybe the director made that as an intentional decision, because he was trying to parody other superhero movies. I also wasn't fond of how they connected the "Take My Hand" scenes and how the some of the action scenes felt "weightless." It wasn't bad like the first Spider-man movie though. Still, I liked nearly all the characters, especially Rocket and Groot. I hope the new Star Wars movie is as good as this!

I forgot, probably mainly due to crummy VHS or DVD or TV, how awesome this movie looked. The art direction, the set design, the whole ambiance of the movie was just thrilling and exceptionally done. For me, this is Gotham city. Outside of Batman Begins, Nolan basically made his Gotham look like a clean, perfect, modern day city. It misses a lot of the elements that I always thought of when I pictured Gotham City.

Secondly, Keaton is Batman. He's got the character all to himself if you ask me. Bale tried, and did a respectable job, and I even like him as Batman. But Keaton defines the character IMO.

This one I enjoyed, purely because it was such a well made film. I didn't really enjoy the story being told, and didn't connect to any of the characters strongly, didn't think it was particularly funny or enlightening, etc. Probably one that would benefit from extra viewings though, as it's probably the most abstract Coen Bros. film yet, or at least up there with Barton Fink. Not much hand holding going on here. My first reaction is that it's a pretty damn bleak film.

AHHH! :duff

Anyway - just watched The Amazing Spider-man 2 -- 7 / 10.

Ehh.. I didn't mind it. A few stupid things in there - namely; Foxx's cringe worthy pre Electrolux character & general dialaogue, the guy playing Harry turning into a loco leprechaun & the painfully convenient blink of an eye set up for it all, Paul Giamatti being completely wasted in the film, & some uber video game looking sequences.

That said - I like Garfield in the role, & the new suit. I like Emma Stone, & I love Sally Field.

Ok, ok... there are a lot of things I want to say about this movie but I'll make it short, I loved it. I loved the dark style, the characters, the music and the messed up universe depicted in it.

The ending was quite abrupt and shocking... wow just wow, this movie is sublime... a great sci-fi experience

Daniels and Carey look tired. A lot of the jokes were repeats from the last movie. Pretty much the same story outline as the first one as well.
I think if a Dumb and Dumber sequel happened a few years after the original it would have been better. That's IMO pretty much why both Ace Ventura films are pretty good. Too many years have passed.

Gone Girl: 8.5/10

I kinda knew the basic plot going in, but it still managed to surprise me greatly. Much better than I was expecting, and I was expecting it to be good. But I did think they rushed the end a bit. Fincher's direction was brilliant as always. Loved Affleck's character's sister in the movie.



I also did not care for Batman Returns. I almost walked out of that in the theater. I came *this* close to walking out when Wayne did the wiki-wiki disc scratch thing during Penguin's press conference. I was SO disappointed. I never loved the first one (just thought it was okay), and I thought Returns looked better. Boy was I wrong! I had seen the scene of Wayne and Pfeifer dancing and realizing who each were in a preview, and thought it looked really compelling and more in line with how I saw comic book stories with fully realized characters. But nope. Even that great scene didn't have the impact I thought it would because everything else that came before and after was dopey.

A proper ending would have been nice, though I consider that no hero film has concluded well, except for Nolan, because he knew it was to come. He kind of left it open so that if people build from it; they could. Though Spider-Man 3 and ASM2 just ended, not really properly.

I watched two blasts from the past with week on their latest blu-rays: JAWS and Back to the Future.

BTTF really needs to be added to the "perfect" list of JAWS, Raiders, and FOTR. There's absolutely no fat in the movie. Every scene perfectly interconnects with not only the next but often as an amusingly clever reference to either parallel events in the future/past or to real life history/current events. It still plays just as well today as it did in 1985 because instead of it being a contemporary film/nostalgic 50's tale it's now a nostalgic 80's/50's story. How did they squeeze in two climaxes, of damn near equal excitement, centered around George pushing a bully off of Lorraine? And both moments were within like five minutes of each other! :lol But it was perfect. I got goosebumps when he punched Biff and then again when he pushed the bully down and the music swelled as he kissed Lorraine and Marty regained his strength. And neither was the "real" climax of the movie!

And the whole ordeal with Doc trying to re-attach the cables as Marty dealt with his own difficulties in getting the car started and across the line in time has got to be, bar none, one of the most exciting moments in cinema history. Seriously. The freaking music, the editing, the close-ups of the lightning rod, Doc figuring out how to get back down, the shots of the lightning starting to strike around the tower, I pretty much have goosebumps typing it out right now.

Don't even get me started on the score which practically makes the movie on it's own. And I know this next part will ruffle some feathers but I don't consider this film part of a trilogy. The next two films just sucked in comparison to this. I kept remembering that when Biff stands so tall in front of Marty in the diner that when they did that in Part 2 or 3 they added little cartoony sound effects to stuff like that. Stupid. And Claudia Wells IS Marty's girlfriend. Period. I can't ever stand seeing Elisabeth Shue with "Claudia Wells" hair. It's just weird. Anyway, I could go off about Part 2 and 3 but I won't. As far as I'm concerned BTTF ends with you just imagining what Marty and Doc's further adventures through time would be like.

I've been catching up a bit lately - two recent ones knocked off my list:

The Punisher (1989) -- 7 / 10

Well. :lol I expected to be groaning all the way through this, but I was pleasantly surprised to be honest. Sure, it's 80s schlock served up nice & cheesy, but man - Dolph was a mean ****er in this version, & was perfectly cast I think. Had they given him a better production to be a part of, his take on Castle would've been dare I say.. iconic. He doesn't wear the skull insignia (ok they're on his knives), the back story is a quick blur, & a lot of corners are cut to move the pace along, but I really dug it.

I liked the Yakuza element, & his looney tune wannabe thespian sidekick. I also didn't realize that it was filmed partly in Sydney too! The film's vibe was bleak & dirty, & it worked well IMO. I'm definitely going to hunt this down to buy. I've seen the 2004 Thomas Jane film, & I didn't like it at all. I can't stand Travolta at the best of times, but he was a miscast in that - & needless to say, I liked the 1989 film much more. Still haven't seen 'War Zone'.. but I'll get around to it. Apparently it does Castle justice, but the rest is a comical mess.


Captain America: The Winter Soldier -- 8.5 / 10

This was a solid flick - G-Zuss! I loved it, the whole thing. Took me long enough to get around to watching it, but wow!

One thing I will say though, is that if I never see Scarlett Johanssen again, it'll be too soon. :lol

The Rocketeer - 6.5/10

Eh, I wanted to love this but I found it a bit boring. Maybe my expectations were set too high? There wasn't enough action in it and the "reveal" for the villain at the end took too long to happen. I expected a larger Nazi presence in this. I think I prefer Sky Captain to this as far as sci-fi action/adventure serial homages go.

I also like Yelchin as the lead, but I suspect that most viewers won't like the end. They did manage to capture the quirky tone of the character and writing though, which is tough to do.

I also like Yelchin as the lead, but I suspect that most viewers won't like the end. They did manage to capture the quirky tone of the character and writing though, which is tough to do.

I never read the books, but enjoyed the film even though it followed a pretty predictable plot. Agreed, Yelchin was good.

I watched two blasts from the past with week on their latest blu-rays: JAWS and Back to the Future.

BTTF really needs to be added to the "perfect" list of JAWS, Raiders, and FOTR. There's absolutely no fat in the movie. Every scene perfectly interconnects with not only the next but often as an amusingly clever reference to either parallel events in the future/past or to real life history/current events. It still plays just as well today as it did in 1985 because instead of it being a contemporary film/nostalgic 50's tale it's now a nostalgic 80's/50's story. How did they squeeze in two climaxes, of damn near equal excitement, centered around George pushing a bully off of Lorraine? And both moments were within like five minutes of each other! :lol But it was perfect. I got goosebumps when he punched Biff and then again when he pushed the bully down and the music swelled as he kissed Lorraine and Marty regained his strength. And neither was the "real" climax of the movie!

And the whole ordeal with Doc trying to re-attach the cables as Marty dealt with his own difficulties in getting the car started and across the line in time has got to be, bar none, one of the most exciting moments in cinema history. Seriously. The freaking music, the editing, the close-ups of the lightning rod, Doc figuring out how to get back down, the shots of the lightning starting to strike around the tower, I pretty much have goosebumps typing it out right now.

Don't even get me started on the score which practically makes the movie on it's own. And I know this next part will ruffle some feathers but I don't consider this film part of a trilogy. The next two films just sucked in comparison to this. I kept remembering that when Biff stands so tall in front of Marty in the diner that when they did that in Part 2 or 3 they added little cartoony sound effects to stuff like that. Stupid. And Claudia Wells IS Marty's girlfriend. Period. I can't ever stand seeing Elisabeth Shue with "Claudia Wells" hair. It's just weird. Anyway, I could go off about Part 2 and 3 but I won't. As far as I'm concerned BTTF ends with you just imagining what Marty and Doc's further adventures through time would be like.

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Khev again.

I pretty much agree 100% with your assessment of BTTF. I watched that movie so many times growing up when it was on cable I can pretty much recite the entire thing. I agree about Claudia Wells. As much as I love Elisabeth Shue (because I do!), no one could replace CW. And I never really liked the sequels. I found the 2nd one interesting because it was a movie built around another movie, seeing the same events from an outsider point of view. It's an interesting concept. But it and number 3 just don't hold a candle to the brilliance of the first one. I also think the 2 sequels suffer greatly from not having Crispin Glover. He was a huge reason why the first one is so good. I really wish they would release the footage of Eric Stoltz as Marty. I would love to see it. I can actually see that movie working, even though obviously everyone involved didn't think so.

The one thing that always bothered me about BTTF was that yes, we knew the exact minute when the lightning was going to hit the clocktower, but we didn't know the second! 60 seconds is a very long span of time especially for lightning to travel. The clock should have had a second hand for the whole thing to be more precise. Hell, even within a second you could have missed the lightning! :lol

Khev
02-23-2015, 11:24 AM
Ha ha, right on about not knowing the second. Heck technically they could have even gotten the second right but not the exact millisecond that the car hit the wire going 88 mph. :lol

But hey, for whatever reason Doc assumed that at "precisely 10:04 pm" the lightning would strike. Maybe the minute hand was just barely over the "4" spot in the picture of the broken clock so they assumed that the lightning struck right as it was changing. Works for me. :lol

And I forgot about no Glover in the sequels. Definitely a big step down in the overall cast.

And yeah, I also watched the hell out of BTTF all throughout the second half of the 80's on VHS to the point where revisiting it again years later I could still quote most of the movie and even anticipate little continuity errors and things (like the dangling plug on the clock tower that is swinging in one shot and hanging still in the shot right before.)

Two days ago I saw the final cut of Blade Runner in the theatre as part of a "Vintage Classics" program put on by a nearby cinema.

Visually, this is one of the best movies I have seen in the cinema. It's a beautiful looking movie, and all of the stunning details on the cityscapes and vehicle miniatures and the gloomy, rainy atmosphere make for a truly remarkable viewing experience. All the effects are seamless - there wasn't a single moment that I was taken out of the movie by a bad effect.

The story and themes are intriguing and memorable, the acting top notch and the Vangelis score perfect for the movie. And Rutger Hauer's monologue is incredible.

I love Alien and Gladiator, but in my opinion this is Scott's best film.

I might give this a 10/10.

The Visitor (1979): 6.5/10

One of those wacky Italian horrorish movies from this era, that are technically very well done, but with a story that is beyond incomprehensible, really only serving as a means of setting up crazy ****ing visuals. But the mood and visuals were very good, and the performances were better than average for this sort of thing. Some outstanding directors in John Huston and Sam Peckinpah had acting roles in this one. Here is a taste of what this movie was all about:

When does it get good? I watched a whole season and thought it felt forced and stupid. I can't stand Amy Poehler's character and everytime I see that pudgy bum on crutches, I dread that he might be the next Indy....

I had only seen about 4 episodes of the first season, and I just started to binge this. Got to 516 in just 2 and a half days! :thud:

Absolutely cannot wait for a hopefully blu ray boxset! :rock

Honestly, I really started to enjoy it after a few episodes of season 2. I wasn't originally a fan of Poehler's character but I have to say she is certainly a favorite. I love Pratt as Andy, and I love Offerman and Plaza as well.


I too couldn't take Andy seriously as Starlord or a potential Indy, but after seeing him as Emmett in Lego and just his overall character, I love him. And you do notice how Poehler and Pratt lose plenty of weight over time.


30 Rock is solid for me, I'd have to say Parks tops that for me, but Office was a damn fine kick.


I recommend you keep seeing it for at least til season 2 and some.

About a year ago, I watched about 6 episodes of Season 1 and gave up. Literally everyone will tell you the same thing, this show didn't find it's footing until Season 2. So glad I gave it another chance thanks to the marathon on Esquire. As someone else said, where The Office got more annoying and characters became less interesting as the show progressed, this was the exact opposite. It just kept getting better.

Yeah, I had free HBO for a weekend so I DVR'd it. It doesn't get better by the end. The whole concept is just so stupid. The trailers make her seem like she's "The One" like Neo or something but when you watch the movie you find out that the government is terrified of her because she has the ability to be a teacher, doctor, policeman, lawyer, or social worker. Oh noes! She's all powerful! Huh?

So she's going to use her power of choosing what she wants to be when she grows up to take over the world? Okay. :cuckoo:
