Highlander II: The Quickening

It's SOOO bad... yammy! :monkey3

I've seen a lot of bad films, we all have... but I think this takes the cake as one of, if not the worst I've ever seen. I think I'm so disgusted by it since I love HL1 so goddamn much and I can only compare it to that.

The Highlander film sequels are all bad, but there's different levels of bad. I saw the third film in it's entirety not too long ago and I thought it might be the best one after the first. Endgame had some good points, but Lambert was WAY too old to be Connor again. I didn't see the Source, but I've read it's horrendous.

I doubt that remake is ever getting done. I kinda looked forward to it since there was murmurings about it having the Queen soundtrack again.

The only thing Quickening has going for it is the scene where Connor and Ramírez are counting the bullets they took.

Jungle Book 8/10

The kid wasn't that great of an actor and the imax 3d was very dark and blurry for some parts. When it did work it was beautiful. I loved the overall style and idea of the movie. All the voice actors sounded so regal and bad ass (Scarlett Johanson was bad though)it was great to watch. I don't remember the cartoon at all but this movie had great moral lessons that fit in well with the simple plot. The movie definitely had some heart and soul which was refreshing. I wouldn't mind a lion king adaptation in this style. It truly was awesome seeing these big animals talk and have character.

Star Wars (1977)

Confession- I never really grew up with Star Wars. Saw the movies in 93/94 but that was decades years ago, and I couldn't rewatch now them due the lack of the theatrical cut of these movies in HD. I'm a firm believer of enjoying something in its' original presentation, so rewatching these movies with all the alterations is something I can't do without remembering the unaltered versions first. This all changed thanks to the fan-recreated "Despecialized Edition".

Anyway, to the review- I think the movie is quite enjoyable. Sure, the dialog can get embarrassingly corny and the Death Star dogfight went way too long but I think the story is quite engaging, aesthetics are beautiful and there's nothing that can be said anymore about the excellent score (which is what I enjoyed the most, actually). I'll be watching the second one tomorrow!

4/5.

I really didn't see the original trilogy until the early 2000s. Empire is the greatest sequel to a film I've ever seen. I think it completely outdoes ANH in ever way, and couldn't possibly be executed more perfectly.

pssht, yeah let me know when hamlet includes some of the best disney songs and African lion action. Besides, jungle book was certainly not live action. I would never have mistaken that for real. It would have been interesting if the kid was done as an animated 3d cartoon character, maybe the movie wouldn't have relied on the kids acting as much.

Man, I practically grew up with Star Wars, and Return of the Jedi was one of the first movies I ever saw :lol. But, onto Empire Strikes Back - to me, it was the highlight of the OT, and absolutely masterful in every way. I first saw it when I was about eight. Surprisingly, I didn't have the ending spoiled for me, because SW wasn't exactly popular with the kids in primary school. I was pretty shocked about the reveal that Vader was Luke's father.

The only thing I don't have for SW are the collectibles. It's sort of a black hole I never wanted to get into, because once you start, there isn't any escape. However, I do have a lot of the essential guides, all of the video games (excluding the new Battlefront), and novels from years past.

I am happy I saw Star Wars when I did (1995). I saw it as a kid before household internet connections were prevalent and right when new collectibles were hitting stores and before the special editions and prequels and at the peak of the Expanded Universe's awesomeness. I'd give ANH and ESB perfect ratings and RotJ an almost perfect rating. It still is the best "final chapter" of a trilogy I've seen. I think only "Bourne Ultimatum" comes close to being the better conclusion.

The Witch - 7/10

A supernatural horror story with a fair amount of intrigue. You won't find any jump scares in this movie, but I guess the real horror lies in the mystery and the open-ended storyline, that doesn't really answer anything for the audience.

The entire cast delivered a masterful performance, and it was especially hilarious to see Kate Dickie in a few breast feeding scenes after her role as Lysa Arryn in Game of Thrones :lol.

The Empire Strikes Back.

As mentioned in my previous post, this is pretty much my first viewing and boy, did they really stepped up the game with this one. There's nothing really I can say that hasn't been discussed to death but as a first time viewer I find this one much, much better than the original. Bolder, darker, and much more expansive, this seems like a movie willing to take risks.

Tomorrow, Return of the Jedi.

ROTJ I'd say it still better than most of what you'd see in the PT... but that's it's own heated debate around these parts. But I can say pretty confidently that Episode II is the absolute worst of the entire series. ROTJ fits well with ANH, but it's so contrived to get all the pieces in place to link it to it.

After ROTJ just skip the prequels and go right into The Force Awakens. Just keep in mind that TFA takes place 30 years after Jedi or you may be a bit lost trying to piece together the passage of time from the film itself until about a third of the way through the movie when it finally becomes clear.

I did watched the PT many many years back and remember being bored to tears with it, especially Episode II. If I recall, there was just too much sci-fi politics bullcrap that flew over my head.

I also wanted to dive deeper into movies before going that bizarre. I've seen most of his movies and love them to death, still not ready to put the disc in though.

Good way to put it - I wanted to be in the mood to watch it too, because I've owned my copy for a while as well. I won't spoil it for anyone interested, but it's definitely a slow burn. The film allows you to interpret the events in your own way which is cool, & there's a lot of symbolism & imagery that gets you thinking, but it's also defintely an acquired taste. :lol

Going back to Star Wars briefly:
I didn't enjoy the PT. I saw them when they were in theaters.
I don't want to see them again.

I went from ages 20 to 26 when A New Hope/Empire/Jedi
were new in the theaters. Never saw anything like 'em before or since.
Whenever anyone asks me what my favorite movie is,
Episodes 4, 5 & 6 is my answer, as I view them as being one very
long movie. TFA is good, I like it, just not in the same way as 4/5/6.

Wow, those last 40 minutes were brutal and graphic. Very well done western/horror with Kurt Russell brilliant as always. But I actually thought Richard Jenkins as the old man assistant deputy was incredible. That performance was sublime.

I just saw this about a week ago. Agree with your assessment of Jenkins' performance. He was the biggest surprise. I knew he was a good actor, but this is 180 degrees from anything I've seen him do before. Great moment when Matthew Fox lets him hold his telescope.

I enjoyed it quite a bit. Its was original, uncompromising, and well done. The mix of horror and western worked well IMO, and Kurt Russell gave it real weight. Seems a shame it didn't get a regular theatrical release, but I guess not surprising given the subject matter and brutality.

If you freeze frame the screen, the camera pans over the island/ mountain area, you'll notice the x wing somewhere on the right side on the screen covered in foliage before the camera pans to the landing of the Falcon.

Rounding up my (almost) first time viewing of the Star Wars trilogy:

Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

Trying to think of anything that hasn't been said about the series is a statistical impossibility, so I'll just wrap it up with my own experience with Star Wars. I've only seen this movie once back in 1994 and never saw it again due to the the lack of the theatrical cut in HD format. Thanks to the Despecialized Edition(s), I'm now watching the trilogy the way people originally did when they were released and nothing else would suffice, especially coming in remembering very little about the series.

Anyway, to the review- It's great! I think it's even better than what some people make it out to be! I love all the Jabba scenes and the Ewoks didn't bothered me as much. The scenes with Vader and Luke were much more moving than I would initially give credit for. Overall, this is a hugely satisfying conclusion to the trilogy.

4/5

Now to the erm, prequel trilogy before moving on to TFA. I've heard stories. Pray for me.

Just letting you know straight up, that despite whatever wind is being blown through here - as far as the SW prequels go, Ep1 is BY FAR the best of them. It's the closest in terms of film making methods, locations, & the strong main cast - PLUS, Darth Maul.

The other two pale in comparison. All the clown troopers & the baton twirling do little to redeem them. :lol

Glad you liked it. I guess being overcritical to it is mainly based off just how good Empire was. It has more good points than bad at least. I liked the whole Jedi Knight Luke, and the whole throne room section... just the Ewoks make me want to punch a baby.

Totally agree. Although I find myself wanting to sit down and watch TPM more than the other two probably because of nostalgia more than anything. First time seeing young Obi Wan, first time seeing advanced Jedi powers, first time seeing more than one Jedi with a light saber, first time seeing another Sith other than Palps and Vader. Lots of good in Ep I...then Jar Jar shows up. :mad:

You need to watch the entire PT to make up your own mind on which ones sucks, and which one you believe was the best. Although, they're all pretty bad in their own respect. I tend to dislike Episode I the most because it introduced the intergalactic Rastafarian, Midichlorians as a biological explanation for the Force, "Annie", amongst other things. Although, it did have a few really cool fight scenes with Maul.

I liked Jenkins talking about the flea circus.

I'm not much of a horror fan, so it was really the dialogue and performances that kept me interested and entertained and made the brutality at the end "worth" it.

Now, as far as the Prequels go, I rate them in ascending quality from 1 to 3. I find 1 by far the worst because of the incredibly non-sensical choices and leaps in logic, and because of the terrible performance by Anakin, and the horribly irritating Jar Jar. I also don’t find the action all that good—just the lightsaber fight with Maul at the end. Even then, it’s marred by the idiocy of the force fields and the inconsistency of the Jedi powers (no speed running through the force fields? And don’t give me the lame excuse Lucas threw out). Two is a little more palatable. I like the chase through the city, Obi Wan vs Jango, and generally the end battle. But it also suffers from horrible dialogue and again, dumb character choices and motivations. There is zero to show how in the world Padme would fall for Anakin. Padme falling in love with Anakin is as far fetched as lightsabers and spaceships. Sith I don’t mind as much. I think the bad dialogue is kept to a minimum (but still there, believe me), but it’s a more straighforward plot so there isn’t a chance to mess up character motivations too much. I liked most of the action scenes. I wasn’t too bothered by the showboating lightsaber battle between Obi Wan and Anakin. Palpatine against the Jedi is the lamest fight I have ever seen. Lucas wanted Ian McDiarmid to actually do his own fighting instead of a double, which was a surprise that day to everyone including the actor and the stunt coordinator, and it clearly shows that he wasn’t up for the task. It was like watching a dad play fighting with his 5 year old and how the dad lets the kid win. And the whole “higher ground” thing is beyond ridiculous. Maul had the higher ground to Obi Wan and Obi Wan still managed to win. Did Lucas forget that? Maybe Maul should have been taunting Obi Wan saying, “you can’t win Obi Wan, I have the higher ground!”

And yes, definitely watch the Red Letter Media reviews. They are very well thought out and fair.

Bizarre true story. I have some vague recollection of this happening. Rufalo and Tatum were really good, especially their body movements like wrestlers and the way they would spar with each other. I was surprised at how good Tatum was. With Carrell I wasn’t 100% convinced. It felt like the performance was a little too mimic-y, but there were certain scenes he nailed.

If that scene had happened in the beginning of the movie it might not have been so bad, but to sit through all the garbage we had to watch just to get to that moment and have it be a whirling light saber with a CGI avatar attached to it going up against a stuntman with Lee's face CGI'd on him, that was like my mind had been assaulted.

Yeah, Lee's face was done really poorly in that. For films being so over reliant on CGI, everything looks dull and tasteless.

I can see why you'd like LW2 over the first, it's a strong sequel and I like how it added an entire new sub plot to the death of Riggs' wife. The original ending Shane Black wrote was to have Riggs die from his bullet wounds at the end of the film.

Great list. They all got that same underlying formula that has never been replicated ever again. The last good cop film I can even think of is Training Day, but it's a different animal since it's not an action movie.

Training day was a great modern Cop movie, guess more Drama/Thriller than action.

There is the cop movies of the 70s, the best of them all, Dirty Harry and Magnum Force.
"Mans got to know his limitations."

Another good modern cop movie, the departed.. I liked it but I do think it's overrated. Not Scorsese's best but I'd say the academy gave him the best director Oscar because they knew they shafted him over all those years before. Had to give him what he deserved Better late than never.

I love when Pesci goes "okay okay okay.." Cracks me up. Lethal weapon 2 is more of a comedy to me, reminds me of another well done 80s cop sequel Beverly Hills cop 2.

Nothing like the cop action/comedies of the 80s and 90s

48 hours
Beverly Hills cop
Beverly Hills cop 2
Lethal weapon
Lethal weapon 2
Lethal weapon 3
To live and die in LA
Point break (Utah, get me two!)
Die hard



I'm sure I'm missing more.

Another good Eddie Murphy cop movie that gets overlooked is Metro.

Though not as good as the buddy cop movies above I'd add
Bad Boys
Bulletproof (Sandler when he was funny and Damon Wayans)
Die Hard With a Vengeance

For serious cop movies I'd add LA Confidential.

Ep II the absolute worst- I think TPM is the best of the PT(unpopular choice I know) despite horrendous Anakin- unforgivable and Jar Jar is OK as comic relief.

Despite the Gungans & little Ani, it still creams the other two movies.

Ichi - 7/10

A somewhat modern spin-off of Zatoichi. The style of the movie was handled well, for the most part, and it was reminiscent of the old Zatoichi movies. Although, I found that the gratuitous use of slow-motion shots deprived the visceral nature of the swordplay that was found in the previous films. Haruka Ayase and Takao Osawa gave great performances for their roles.

Lisa Gerrard was an EXTREMELY odd choice as a composer, to say the least.

What can I say about this exploration of the Human spirit that hasn't already been said. Leading the most spectacular ensemble cast gathered together on screen since Ernest Goes To Camp is the venerable thespian himself, Sir Arnold Schwarzenegger. In this harrowing tale of two enemies embattled over the possession of a Hot Toys Predator doll, young new comer Sinbad in his breakout role steals the show. This modern day Shakespearian thriller will leave you on the edge of your seat and asking yourself, how will they ever top this movie in the sequel?

I grew up with the theatrical cut and had watched it that way from probably 1983 (on video) til the director's cut came out, so I have a soft spot for the theatrical cut. I know people say HF sounds "bored" in his voiceover, but I always saw it as part of the character. He was world weary and as he says in the movie: "I was quit when I come in here, Bryant, I'm twice as quit now."

I love quoting it! "They don't advertise for killers in the newspaper. That was my profession. Ex-cop. Ex-blade runner. Ex-killer."

Still love it though--any and all versions. I had gotten the comic adaptation (the black and white paperback size one) when the movie came out so I had "read" the movie countless of times before I ever even saw it. My mom wouldn't take me to see it when it came out (probably knew it was violent), so my older cousin eventually rented it for me. I remember growing up (I finally saw it when I was 11), no one I knew had watched it and if they knew about it then they would just scoff or sneer at it. It wasn't til high school that I met a couple of people who had actually seen it. And the DC came out when I was in college so we were able to watch it on the big screen.

I really did enjoy this movie. The first act dragged a bit and I felt explaining the backstory of the Huntsman

and making his wife a warrior who really didn't die

kind of took away from the mystique and badassness of the character we were introduced to in the first one. But the latter acts of the film were solid and fun. I paid $2.80 out of pocket to see this with my wife thanks to some gift cards I had laying around. I can't really afford to go to the movies very much so probably will have to wait until Bluray to see it again but very much look forward to doing so.

I almost shut it off too but I toughed it out since I was on a train and didn't have anything else to watch. Didn't get better at all. It's the first movie in a long time that I've wanted to shut off and give up on it. I also haven't watched anything with Amy Schumer before, but any and all Melissa McCarthy movies are better than Trainwreck. I said it in my review here: it's practically not a comedy at all but a drama with some attempts at jokes every once in a while.

Seen it once, didn't find anything interesting for myself. But it's a good film.
Cool, we need more Mel though.

Too bad he was ostracized because of a few drunken comments.


Tried to watch Trainwreck. Shut it off during the second scene. I don't know much about Amy Schumer but what I saw made the Ghostbusters trailer seem charming by comparison.
Crazy how that movie was praised as a subversive comedy :slap:

The only thing good about it is John Cena :lol

Apparently he improvised most of that. :lol

Almost gave up on this anime initially but the story did take an interesting turn and I liked the overall message. The ending confused me a little bit though.

Basically to me, it was just reiterating how he felt about the world and he would just further continue his madness.

That I get, but what confused me is the lawyer guy at the end saying he saw Jared Leto alive in London, but he had already been killed with an axe. So did he not kill the guy? Was it just his imagination? If not how'd the other guy see him alive in London?

It's intentionally ambiguous so that you draw your own conclusion. He shot a patrol car with a tiny pistol and blew it up, as well as chasing a prostitute with a chainsaw while both were screaming and nobody noticed :lol not like that's very realistic.

Also the apartment was remodeled, and the real estate lady gave him a dirty look like if she knew who he was and what he did, passed through the same building twice, the first time he killed the receptionist but the 2nd time the receptionist was there anyway, the name changing, etc etc.

You're not supposed to know what's real because Patrick doesn't know what's real, or it can also represent the cold and uncaring nature of society/the corporate world, providing some of those things did actually happen, among other things.

It gives for many many viewings and much thought.

I thought it was pretty clear that he didn't do anything. All his fantasies were in his notebook, but he might do those things one day. However, it's all subjective.

You can't tell for sure that either everything or nothing happened, because most of it is intentionally ambiguous, you can kinda tell in some parts the moment when he disconnects from reality, but for instance, killing hobos in dark alleys? Could very well have happened, I think it was the director himself who said it's not one way or the other.

I don't go one way or the other either, I think it's more interesting to leave it open, the notebook very telling, but it also isn't much proof of anything other than his fantasies.

True, he may have killed some homeless people, but I don't think he killed Paul Allen, since Harold saw him in London (Unless it wasn't really Paul Allen, and just another guy wearing an expensive suit :lol) and Detective Kimball dropped the case because Bateman had an alibi.

It could also be that people don't give a **** about each other, and Harold doesn't even know who Paul Allen is or what he looks like and he was confusing him with someone else like Patrick was himself confused with some other guy. So maybe Patrick did kill Paul Allen.

But not even Patrick is sure of that.

Sure I can. Besides, I said it was pretty clear that he didn't killed anyone...but I also said, it was subjective, therefore a matter of opinion. Oh...and Predator 2 is still super weak. :bunnydanc

Really? I thought it was excellent, the Cinematography was extremely well done. It was supposed to be more along the lines of an 80's horror flick. Did you at least enjoy the soundtrack?

If he didn't actually kill anyone in American Psycho...that's lame. It's like the main character waking up at the end of a movie only to find out it was all a dream. Disregard my 10/10 Wizard of Oz review. :monkey3

It's a great movie. Movie does not drag, not even a little.
Dialogue/script are very real, acting is terrific and it even
has a few lines to quote. Very intense! High re-watchability factor, too.

Patrick Bateman most certainly killed everyone but I do think he was having some hallucinations/day dreams in between. He appears in other books by the author and its pretty evident he is a killer.

Author's name escapes me at the moment but he created Patrick Bateman to deal with the feelings/state he was in at the time.

That whole book was about the excess and absurdity of the 80's culture, all the Yuppie Socialites couldn't identify one person from another as they were too absorbed and wraped up in their cocaine filled nights.

The Revenant 6.5 /10 - I don't get the hype..a simple revenge film based loosely on real events. Visually it was amazing, the bear scene was awesome but nothing else really stood out as "fresh" instead rather expected.

Well made, and the blind/deaf victim gimmick was kind of interesting, but nothing particularly special about it. Worth watching if you are a fan of slasher horror movies, though.
