The Sting (1973) - 10/10

A classic with Newman and Redford. One of my favorites.




X-Men Apocalypse (2016) - 0/10

Not surprised I didn't enjoy this, like most every popular block buster or superhero flick coming out lately, the new Star Wars, marvel films, BVS, deadpool..




The Big Sleep (1946) - 9.8/10

An A+ private detective film noir starring Bogie and Bacall.




Inception (2010) - 6/10

Not my favorite Nolan movie, that goes to Memento, but enjoyable and a fun watch.

X-Men: Apocalypse- 7.0/10

I feel like Singer should step back from the franchise, just his cinematic style feels old and repetitive.

Apocalypse himself was a disappointment.

Saving grace was McAvoy's and Fassbender's performances and the development of the young X-Men, Cyclops, Jean, and Nightcrawler.

Not sure on a number. It's not the complete train wreck everyone made out, but it's a wreck for sure and definitely not as good as DOFP. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either. I guess in the 6-7/10 category. One thing I'll say, Singer needs to get the **** away from the franchise. FOX has the talent to make a good Marvel film (Deadpool) it's just they got the wrong people behind it.

Damn right...or maybe I am not as easily entertained as some people? I know alot of people will watch just about anything...especially if its got T&A , bad jokes or lots of action and death......that's obvious from American culture. (just look at the TV line ups).

Myself I prefer, plot, character development, pacing, score, editing , acting, directing, effects, and the combinations of them to tell a cohesive story that entertains, educated or moves me....

So I guess people are free to rate anything anyway they want....

Yep ....
John Wick 10/10! Just as good as Star Wars!
Deadpool .....Awesome, better than Shawshank Redemption. (why cause it entertained me for 2 hours)
Hot Tub Time Machine....INCREDIBLE FILM! Much better than It's a Wonderful Life!!!!

No wonder Hollywood can produce such crap every year.....when people accept it as good entertainment....
Man, you'd really hate me, I prefer both John wick and dead pool to star wars and Shawshank redemption lol

10 Cloverfield Lane - 7/10 It's like one of those indie sci-fi.

Ending kinda kills it but it's necessary to make it what it is, yet the movie is terrific and John Goodman carries it mostly, MEW is also very good in it.

There might be some mayor rewatch value in there, will re-watch it soon.

It did leave me with a claustrophobic survivalist after taste, so any movie that manages to linger with me for a while did something right.

Plus, I read some "leaked plots" so I expected something a little bit different.

more related to kaiju/1st clover

But this kinda Lovecraftian ending might just work, too bad there's probably not gonna be a sequel since they're going for an Anthology.

I don't know, thinking about it, I think the ending could be what makes it, especially for a Cloverfield fan like me, I don't participate a lot in the ARG but I read all the stuff after everyone figured it out.

So the ending could just work, even more so after reading everything about the upcoming God Particle movie.

Can't wait, and I will rewatch this one soon.

I think I may crank it up to a 7.5 or an 8.

I actually loved the "twist" about what the "attack" turned out to be. Loved it. You think John Goodmans crazy with his apocalyptic theories through the whole movie and then...WHAT??! I thought that was brilliant.

I think what turned me off, and this is probably a little petty considering the rest of the movie was so great, was how easily she dealt with the threat at the end.

I'm also going to watch it a couple more times cause I loved the hell out of the first one and I'm sure theres some nods and references I missed :)

I can't believe this thread is still here haha.

Anyway, I saw The Conjuring 2 at a free screening and I kinda liked it a lot? It wasn't as creepy as the first, but I found it to be a little more fun and looser than the first. Which could be a good or bad thing depending on how you feel about it. Honestly, Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga just own their roles and really are the heart of the film. They have fantastic chemistry.

What I personally loved about the film was it sorta felt like a really interesting remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street. Mostly because of the villain, an angry old man who really enjoys ****ing with little children. There's a neat twist I won't spoil, but it really hammered in the way I was watching it. Also, there's a lot of ANOES imagery going around. Nuns, people being drug up walls, "dream sequences" ect. It was pretty dope. I don't think my audience liked it though. They reacted the spooky stuff, but by the end, they just sort of walked out.

The opening was kind of neat too with it being set at Amityville, covering the case itself. I liked how it starts off with the familiar windows, and then actually states, YES THIS IS WHAT YOU THINK IT IS Way better than the first's with Annabelle.

Not quite as good as the first overall, but for me, it wasn't much of a step down.

Yeah, maybe be wary. The audience and my buddy I saw it with didn't seem all that thrilled about it. It was actually kind of on the long side, and I did feel it, but it never bugged me at all. But then again, I love spooky paranormal ghost hunter ****, AND Patrick Wilson, so I'm a bit biased.

The opening was kind of neat too with it being set at Amityville, covering the case itself. I liked how it starts off with the familiar windows, and then actually states, YES THIS IS WHAT YOU THINK IT IS Way better than the first's with Annabelle.

Not quite as good as the first overall, but for me, it wasn't much of a step down.

Them! (1954): 6.5/10

Man, I hadn't realized just how much Cameron had mined this film for ideas when he made ALIENS. The catatonic little girl with the mangled doll found after her parents were eaten, the guys with the flamethrowers going into the tunnels while a woman discovers that the walls are covered in a secreted resin, the kids having to be rescued from the hive, escaping out the ventilation shaft in the drainage tunnels, even the crazy old guy literally uttering the words "They mostly come out at night."

No wonder many ALIEN purists were put off by Cameron turning the xenos into "big ants" in 1986.

I gave it a 5.5/10. A little above average, but I was still entertained and will probably pick up the blu-ray just to have the 3D version instantly available should I ever find myself in the mood to revisit the film's higher points.

I can't believe this thread is still here haha.

Anyway, I saw The Conjuring 2 at a free screening and I kinda liked it a lot? It wasn't as creepy as the first, but I found it to be a little more fun and looser than the first. Which could be a good or bad thing depending on how you feel about it. Honestly, Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga just own their roles and really are the heart of the film. They have fantastic chemistry.

What I personally loved about the film was it sorta felt like a really interesting remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street. Mostly because of the villain, an angry old man who really enjoys ****ing with little children. There's a neat twist I won't spoil, but it really hammered in the way I was watching it. Also, there's a lot of ANOES imagery going around. Nuns, people being drug up walls, "dream sequences" ect. It was pretty dope. I don't think my audience liked it though.

Oh yeah. I love Cloverfield, and 10 Cloverfield Lane is probably my second favorite film of the year, besides Deadpool, which, if you remember I was super stoked about because of that great script. (And it's the only comic book character I like from reading comics).

But yeah. Cloverfield Lane was just pretty much perfect. Sharply written, tense as **** and man, every actor knocked it out of the park. Especially Goodman. Man, I still get chills thinking about some of those scenes. What a great film.

And I'm obviously not hiding. I've mellowed out quite a bit. Just in general. The internet isn't about arguments. That **** is boring and for high schoolers. I am not a high schooler any more. :D

Agreed on Cloverfield, although my initial reaction about the ending was a bit of confusion, but then it hit me.

the crazy conspiracy theorist/prepper guy who was made out to be the villain, was actually right all along.

Hence the ending is perfect.

X-Men Apocalypse was a real let down for me. I like Bryan Singer and thought his come back was really great. This was just too much. Honestly what I like about the X-Men films overall is they're rarely ever about a WORLD ENDING THREAT. It's always personal. Ideologies clashing against each other, wrapped up in a metaphor for minorities. X2, First Class, and Days of Future Past really work because of this.

X-3 is terrible because of this. And this one felt like a weird extension of X-3 but just a little less hacky. That little quip about the 3rd movie being bad made my eyes roll because if you consider First Class a new trilogy, well....

Quicksilver is really the best part mostly because he's not only a great, well defined character, but Evan Peters just goes for it and it's great. Also, everything he does in the film is a character thing, and not a story thing. Which I appreciate. His big scene is filled with little moments of character peppered in and even if you've never seen him before, you know exactly who he is as a person. Great storytelling there. Damn shame it had to be shoved in directly after a pretty dramatic moment. One of the worst tonal shifts I've ever seen in a film.

I'll be quite honest, I don't remember any god particle thing. Only the sea nector, the girl dying on a bed, and the oil rig thing. :lol:

But yeah. The ending is perfect. I love it because it drives the character forward and not so much the plot. What happens after isn't important. It's the choice. Goddamn I love that movie. I can't wait to own it.

Oh so you don't know about God Particle? It's another Bad Robot movie, people think it's the 3rd movie of the Clover series, I'm not gonna spoil the search for you, so here's just the synopsis:


The story, set in the near future, centers on a team of astronauts on a space station making a terrifying discovery that challenges all they know about the fabric of reality, as they desperately fight for their survival

Then this showed up on the Tagruato website.


BOLD FUTURA HIRES “DREAM TEAM”
In a move surely to shake up the world of physics, Bold Futura has recruited one hundred of the top physics majors graduating from universities around the world. Most highly sought after was Johan Hedberg from Sweden. His internationally-acclaimed thesis on the intricate ecosystems of deep sea crevices landed him immediate tenure at his university but he turned it down for the opportunity to work for Bold Futura. “They offered me free reign to do whatever I want as long as the board approves and oversees it, “said Hedberg at Futura’s November press conference, “Plus I’ll have comfort and security for a long, long time.”

It is unclear what Futura’s expectations are for these young minds. The company is cheerfully vague regarding their intentions for the new all-star quantum squad.

“With those young, fresh minds working together, anything is possible. I’ve watched these new graduates - they have ideas on everything from creating new energy sources to starting us down the road to teleportation,” said Tokyo-based Professor Akira Okinawa. “As a citizen to Japan and the human race, I cannot think of a better place for their ideas to flourish. Bold Futura is cutting edge and innovative. It has a plan for us all.”

Ganu Yoshida is the CEO of Bold Futura’s parent company, Tagruato. When asked about this “quantum coup”, he answered, “Now that we have all the best minds, we won’t need to worry about competition. This is what the industry needs right now: a company focused not on what its competitors are doing, but instead what it can do to make the world a better place.”

American Mike Siegel graduated last May in a cap and gown. Now he’ll be on the other side of the world in a labcoat. He won’t miss home though. “They offered me a chance to make history and to work with the best in my field. How could I turn that down?”

Those three seasons had some good moments...but...season 8 is pretty bad. I liked Oliver Saxon, but I feel like that Hannah character kind of ruined the show. She's like the Yoko Ono of the series, if you know what I mean by that. Debra was poorly written and the show just felt repetitive and like they had run out of creativity. I'm not sure how I feel about the ending.

This is one show that I wouldn't mind if it came back as a mini series or for a short season, just so that Dexter's story can have a different ending.

Yeah but not in the same way. I think when he does his Non-Transformer stuff, he can make a pretty funny satire, or in the case of 13 Hours, a pretty great war drama. 13 Hours was definitely his best work. I liked how he was able to keep his style all the way though, but left moments for really good character stuff.

Transformers don't hold up at all, and that 4th movie was just the most overlong piece of ****.

The Hurt Locker - 7.5/10 -- Watching this film reminds me of how talented and bad ass Renner can be, and how his talent is lost in the MCU films playing Hack-eye.

TMNT 1990- 8.5/10 -- I'm judging it as a TMNT movie, not great film-making. Sometimes a smaller budget and lack of special effects forces a film to rely on better characterization and slightly better writing. Having said that, as a film, it's just as bad as the new ones :lol

Watchmen- 5.5/10 -- A lot of great ideas and images, with some occasional good scenes, but still not enough to make it a good film. Still, it's a little better than BVS, but just as boring.

Unedited Footage of a Bear

Okay, this isn't a movie, it's one of Adult Swim's informecials, which air at around 4 AM, and are later posted at Youtube. Like "Too Many Cooks", it starts off innocent enough, but gets weirder and more disturbing as time goes on. If you click on it without knowing what you're getting into, like me, you're in for...a ride. Now, I'm not a horror fan, so I was really, really creeped out by it, though I guess if you like that sort of stuff you won't be really "scared".

It doesn't really feature that much gore or any jump-scares, but it's very, very disturbing. Mainly because it's very "real". There are no ghosts, demons or demented killers, just Claridryl and suburbia. Its strength is found in all the little touches. The quiet, the creepy music, the still images and the sudden flashes, the little letters that make it still appear like a commercial. If you pay attention, you'll find a whole lot of disturbing little touches, mostly hidden in the background.

In general, I'd say it's more "disturbing" than a horror movie, despite its short length. It won't scare you or make you jump out of your seat, but it will make you slightly nervous, and will stay with you for quite some time. Not in the sense of "omeegeee, I can't sleep, the monster from the vid might get me", but in the sense that you'll keep thinking about it, manly because it's got a point and it's not that far-fetched. Makes you wonder, really...

Bridge of Spies: 7/10
It was good. John Williams got out of hand in a few scenes and nearly killed them. And I think the very end felt a bit hokey and overly syrupy like only Spielberg can do in a serious movie. But overall it was very good with great performances. I forget how visually distinct Spielberg’s movies can be, and it was nice to see that voice. One of his better ones from these later years (I didn’t like War Horse or Lincoln).

The Resurrection of Jake the Snake: 7/10

Lots of drama, and the movie ends on a note of hopefulness for two wrestling legends (Jake and Scott Hall). Quite an about face from Beyond the Mat, another documentary from the '90s that was really exploitative re: Jake's drug addiction. I was in New Orleans when both were inducted into the Hall of Fame, and knew that Jake was helped out tremendously by Diamond Dallas Page, but didn't have any idea of all that was involved. More than anything, this movie shows how awesome DDP is. But those other guys helped to give him opportunities back in the day, and now he's paying it back. One of my big takeaways here is that good karma comes back around. I hope neither of those guys falls too far off the wagon again. Jake's life has been so filled with darkness.

Unfortunately the movie was kinda blah and the stunts weren't all that exciting. Not sure if I should bother with the next one like I was planning to.
Watch first two films, they're fun.

I watched Beyond the Mat a week ago again. Truly eye opening about the industry. It really made me hate the Rock for how overboard he went on Mick with the chair, and didn't even check on him afterward.

Strangely enough, I've been watching a bunch of interviews from over the years about the Montreal Screwjob. Sucks Bret left WWF only to get messed up by dumb Goldberg and forced into retirement.

If you've ever wanted to see a once-acclaimed Hollywood director create a two-and-a-half hour X-Men movie apparently aiming to be deep and serious (one scene involving Magneto is a meta-reference to both the 1985 Russian WWII movie Come And See and the biblical quote it took its name from), but instead miss completely and accidentally create a piece of gloriously inept schlock that could be a long-form episode of the '92 cartoon series (Apocalypse transforms Angel into Archangel while his other three horsemen look on, to the tune of 'Four Horsemen' by Metallica), this may be the movie for you.

That being said, I thought Thomas Dekker was beyond perfect as a young John Connor. He's obviously got the look, but he's also got some great acting ability. If anyone ever salvages the Terminator film franchise and makes the future war film(s) properly, I'd love to see him play John in it.

He actually looks a bit like Nick Stahl, but less druggy and derpy.

She just hits all the right notes for the character. Do you have the blu ray set? In the making of feature, the producers said they were faced with tons of auditions of people doing their best Linda Hamilton impression, but ripping Linda off will only rob Sarah Connor of her character.

That's why Emilia Clarke failed so spectacularly. She looks like Hamilton but offers nothing more beyond that.

I have no idea, felt nothing like the first one but it was still good I guess? Felt more like an Insidious movie. Filled to the brim with jump scares and one really cool creature/boogeyman (but again felt out of place when comparing it to the first movie). It lacked in actual things or action happening. everything lead up to a jumpscare and then that was it, no chases or anything like that. I enjoyed the old school story telling. It came across as very sweet and simple. Ill have to see I again.

I have the blu ray set but haven't watched all the extras. I think I remember seeing the Sarah Connor bit though. I think Lena pulled off the character extremely well and wasn't quite as crazy unstable as Linda Hamilton was, though I still think Hamilton was a badass. Emilia Clarke seemed too young and cute for the role so I never bought into her as Sarah.

The ending was solid and workable, if you put the clues together. It's one of those shows where you discover something new every time.I'm still confused on what went on with Cameron in the finale, and the whole neutral Terminator group. Think I'm gonna buy the series and re-watch it in a few months. I binge-watched all 31 episodes in about a week so I'm sure there's a lot I didn't pick up on.

The Conjuring 2 ??/10

I have no idea, felt nothing like the first one but it was still good I guess? Felt more like an Insidious movie. Filled to the brim with jump scares and one really cool creature/boogeyman (but again felt out of place when comparing it to the first movie). It lacked in actual things or action happening. everything lead up to a jumpscare and then that was it, no chases or anything like that. I enjoyed the old school story telling. It came across as very sweet and simple. Ill have to see I again.

Sounds like a good one. I never got why The Conjuring got more praise than Insidious. Except for the ridiculous final act I really preferred Insidious as a creepy paranormal thriller over The Conjuring.

After one viewing of the first, I never cared to see it again. It only had one real scare in it.

Everyone had a lengthy discussion on the Genysis thread a few months back but basically I think:

Cameron was working for Weaver all along, and Weaver was creating a world where humans and machines could co-exist. Weaver refused to join future Connor because future John wanted a world where only humans exists, hence her answer in the sub was no. It's possible and reasonable to assume that John Henry went to the future to meet with his "brother", Skynet, and show him that humans and machines do get along, with all the proof in Cameron's chip.

Unlike future John, present John is a human nurtured by machines (Uncle Bob and Cameron) and John Henry is a machine nurtured by humans (Dr. Sherman, Eliison and Savannah) thus I'd like to imagine the war finally ended when Skynet realizes this.

It's also obvious that Cameron was working for Weaver since she never lets John cross paths with her until the time came.

But yeah, it takes multiple viewings to get a lot of the subtle nuances, themes and allegories in the show. That's why it's so brilliant, and why it failed. :lol

It was still better than when I saw Batman & Robin.
Man, I remember how much I was excited for B&R as a kid...
And it was my first dubless big screen experience.


I thought Thomas Dekker was beyond perfect as a young John Connor.
He's obviously got the look, but he's also got some great acting ability.
IKR? Who knew that Nick from "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" tv show would make such a great JC.

The Maltese Falcon. 10/10. It is a damn crime that I haven't watched some of these old noir movies before now. Just a badass movie. "I don't mind a reasonable amount of trouble." I liked it a bit better than Double Indemnity, which was also brilliant.

Up next ... Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Sunset Boulevard, Harvey, Dial M for Murder, On the Waterfront, and Key Largo. Honestly, just scrolling through TCM every week or so and just recording anything that I've heard of but never seen.

Any recommendations? Anything I ought to look for? Particularly noir stuff like Maltese Falcon or Double Indemnity?

If that's all true, I wonder how Weaver came to be in the first place. Perhaps Skynet's "brother" John Henry is developed at some point after the war, and sends her back to create him earlier and try and avoid the war altogether, or at least resolve it sooner? Or maybe I'm missing a more obvious explanation. :lol

Man, I really wish the series could come back in some form today.

The Big Sleep - is a film noir directed by Howard Hawks starring Bogart and Bacall. Bogart plays private eye Phillip Marlowe, so it's similar to his previous role in The Maltese Falcon.

The Harder They Fall - is another gritty Bogart film where he plays a boxing promoter working for the mob. it's ending is just fantastic. It's actually his last film before his death and he went out with a Bang.

The Grapes of Wrath - is not film noir but it's a classic no doubt. Film adaptation of Steinbecks great novel, it's in my top 10 black and white films, top 5 even.

The others you mentioned are great too, Treasure and Waterfront especially. If you dig On the Waterfront try out A Streetcar named Desire - It came out few years prior and stars Brando in what is considered by many to be the most influential role of all time. Directed by the same directer aswell, Elia Kazan.

To Have and Have Not - My second favorite Bogart role after Falcon.

Chinatown - not sure If you've seen this, it was made in the 70s, it is in color, and stars Jack Nicholson. it's set in the late 30s and is film noir. It reminds me so much of Maltese Falcon and The Big Sleep.

Casablanca - Bogart's most iconic starring role in a film and for good reason. Also stars the lovely Ingrid Bergman.

There are plenty more of course but check those out if you want to, man.

Zootopia, finally watched this. I like most animated movies, but with this having a 98% on RT..... man was it overrated. Very predictable, not that funny, and just so many missed opportunities. Maybe this is just a case of expectations vs reality but the chief of police should have been a bull and voiced by The Rock (aka Brahma Bull). The goats making the drugs wearing the yellow suits should have been voiced by Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. Then the head of crime should have been a Penguin in homage to a crime lord of the Gotham.... the Penguin.

It certainly is a mess. I hated Apocalpyse in this, in both look and how he was portrayed. I didn't hate the Wolverine cameo too much, it was just poorly done. Much of the film felt hurried, but the best thing I liked in it was the young Cyclops and Jean.

I liked Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse, I thought his performance was great. The problem for me was that the script gave him nothing significant to work with in terms of creating an actual character, just like the old cartoon he was nothing but a series of ominous one-liners.

It's reaching the point where I barely watch new films any more - X-Men Apocalypse is the only one I've seen so far this spring/summer. My recommendation if you love noir is M by Fritz Lang. Amazing piece of filmmaking.

Man, I really wish the series could come back in some form today.

Interestingly, Weaver's faction isn't interested in stopping Skynet before it came to be, and Skynet wasn't even aware that she was there (based on the 888 that was sent to kill her). The real Skynet was developed by Danny Dyson and the Kaliba group, but nobody, including John Connor came close to even knowing that.

Weaver's creation seems a bit of a mystery, but unlike the movies, the show did a great job of showing Skynet being a sentient being rather than a computer program. This was shown via John Henry, who said that he and Skynet are the same, would come to similar conclusions with situations but the main difference is John Henry thinks that human life is sacred. It's easy to imagine that some higher level machines are capable of thoughts and will, thus Weaver broke off from both Skynet and the human resistance to create her own world.

What I hate the most about the movies is that they make Skynet an evil computer program, even worse if they give it a speaking avatar like in Salvation and Geneshyte. The less we know about Skynet, the scarier it is but we should know that it is a sentient, living creature of sorts, and it thinks humans are unreasonable and self destructive. The TV show did this brilliantly, and never even showed us Skynet.

TMNT (2007) -- 7.5 / 10

This was my second attempt at giving it a proper watch, & I actually enjoyed it for the most part. Last time I was in & out of the room when it was on, so I missed a lot of it. I normally have an immediate aversion to digitally animated shows or movies (with one or two exceptions), but there was a lot to like about the movie.

Firstly, the obvious connection to the original 1990 film - awesome. Secondly, although the main story was a little up in clouds, the 'brothers' theme was nicely done, & the action / fight sequence between Leonardo & Raphael was great. The voice acting was well done too - with some big names on board to boot. I actually really liked the look of the Turtles as well.

Previously, I paid little attention to this movie, but I've really turned around on it. I'd even place it not too far behind the 1990 film, & might buy it now. :)
