The Snowman (1982)

Why oh why did I decided to re-watch this emotionally crushing movie today is a mistake I'll regret for a while. A film that gently lifts you up to the sky, suffocates you and slams you right back into the ground.

Oh, and David Bowie's in it! :rock

Fast & Furious 6: 6.5/10

They are definitely getting better with every movie. This was was very enjoyable and the cast seems to have a really good rapport. The stunts were great. I had no idea that was Gal Gadot aka Wonder Woman! Damn, she's SO skinny in this! And Gina Carano was really good.

13 Hours: Secret Soldiers of Benghazi: 7.5/10

Wow! That was incredible. Great job for Michael Bay--he seems to finally be maturing as a filmmaker, but still couldn't pass up the opportunity to have a lingering shot of a burned and tattered American Flag among the ruins in a swimming pool. Great performances from everyone. Great "action" sequences. Great pacing. Very emotional too.

You didn't like Batman's comeback/intro for the first time in many years? I thought it was a cool "return," especially with the older cop telling the rookie cop he's about to watch something "cool." Love the shot of all the cops chasing Bats and the escape with the Zimmer music.

Well yes and no. Seeing people's reaction to the return of the Batman was cool and all but I still have misgivings about them having Batman retired for the 8 years since TDK. Also the action in the scene was weak so that sort of let it down anyway.


Not A-D but........When Batman talks to himself in the Batman voice. :lol

Yeah, some people slag that part off but I liked it. Nice to have the occasional funny bit.

Batman Vs Superman: 7.9/10

I don't get the hate for this, it's a solid film. Much better than any film released by Marvel/Disney. It's much more dark and gritty which I think superhero films should be.

I do feel Jesse Eisenberg done a good job portraying a pyschopath but not Lex Luthor.

The too dark edge to this is what actually turned me off. Maybe even why others were too. It looked more like a real world rogue cop movie with a few super powers thrown in than a comic book movie to me.

That's where Marvel movies shine. Light hearted but with just enough serious content, heart and action to make it enjoyable and solid.

It's good there's the variety out there in this genre now though. Seems to be something for everyone.

Batman Vs. Supes - 5/10

No real desire to see this again anytime soon. Gal as WW was the best thing in it and a real surprise to me since I expected her to be a poor fit for the role.

That's funny. Your description really makes it sound appealing to me. I thought MOS was okay but action that went on for far too long, dumb decisions by characters, and uncharacteristic behavior from characters. So I skipped BvS but I'll watch it as a rental. BTW, I generally love the Marvel movies.

Escape from L.A. (1996) - 6.5/10

Much better than I remembered it. I actually think it plays better now than it did in 1996. I remember when I saw it in the theater with a buddy and we were so pumped for it and then it was just almost *too* goofy with effects that were so bad even at the time. For those who remember after T2 and Jurassic Park the 90's really had that feel of the sky being the limit with regard to visual effects and that we were entering an era where everything was going to look photo-real.

Yeah, that didn't happen with Escape from L.A. :lol

But all the things that turned me off then (the bad effects, life or death basketball game, plastic surgery gang, etc.) I freaking love now. :lol When do you ever see a movie where the director/writers just go "we're going to come up with the most off the wall scenes and stunts, budget be damned?" But they did. "We don't have the budget to make his CG submarine look convincing." "I don't care I want him to arrive in a CG sub." "We don't have the budget or hell even technology to make it look like he's really surfing a tsunami before jumping onto the back of a convertible." "So what, that's what Snake would do, put it in the movie." I love that! Not that I would want that approach in all movies of course but for this one it really worked.

An interesting counterpoint to Suicide Squad. Because in decades past the premises for films like these were always so far beyond what could actually be produced, and with SS we're actually finally "there." But the flip side is that it has to be less hardcore than the "Escape from" movies because of the larger audience it needs to appeal to to earn back its budget. So you've got that give and take. Very interesting.

Escape from L.A. was hella fun and I look forward to watching it more often in the years to come. Usually when a main character in a satire plays it serious it comes across as him not knowing what movie he's in. But Kurt's portrayal of Snake is perfect and actually enhances the commentary of not only the respective social issues it addresses but also that entire film genre as well.

Yep it came out the month after Independence Day. If you walked into a movie theater in August 1996 your choices would have included ID4, The Frighteners, or Escape from L.A. Hard to believe that Steve Buscemi starred in this the same year as the brilliant Fargo. :lol

I thought it was an 80s movie like its predecessor.

Khev
08-12-2016, 09:49 AM
Yeah, there's a certain style and "cheapness" to Carpenter's films that always evokes a particular 80's vibe but Escape from L.A. is also full of that heightened self-aware satire so prevalent throughout the 90's. I remember being so excited for what all the new technology would bring and then getting increasingly annoyed that damn near every big budget spectacle just could NOT play it straight from beginning to end. After 1992 everything just got so damn goofy. Dark Batman turned goofy. The ALIEN series got goofy. Star Wars got goofy. Brand new films like The Fifth Element, ID4, Mars Attacks, goofy, goofy, goofy.

The Matrix was SUCH a breath of fresh air when it finally came out at the end of the decade. Then Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, X-Men, AI Artificial Intelligence, FOTR all came out and finally Hollywood was starting to take sci-fi/superheroes/fantasy seriously again.

But now that we've got distance from the 90's I actually don't mind going back and dabbling in that era from time to time. As I said now Escape from L.A. is kind of fun to work in with all the films that have come out since.

The books are great because there's a lot more to the stories, much more complex plotting, characterization and character connections than what makes it to film, just like any book adaptation. But if you really want to get the best HP experience, I highly highly HIGHLY recommend the audio books read by Jim Dale. They are brilliant.

Thanks. I might start reading them this weekend. I have all the books but never read them for some strange reason.

Only reason I plan on reading the books is because I have all of them in my house. Otherwise I would’ve went with the audio books.

Somewhat agree, though I think I would give the overall score a tad higher, probably just for nostalgic purposes. :lol

The first and second movies are good family movies, POA is probably my favorite, it's when you can see they started following the books with a slighter darker tone. but goddamn did the last 3 really fall flat.

I picked up The Cursed Child last week but haven't gotten around to opening it yet.

Ghostbusters: 4/10

i wanted to like this so much, but the story for me was pretty bad. just a rehash of the original trying to modernize it. I loved the team, i thought they had great chemistry and Kate McKinnon was the standout for me. She was hilarious!!! I was just hoping for a better ,more original story. I thought it was maybe a missed opportunity to tie the original to the new one. I think fans would have appreciated that instead of making it a movie about cameos in roles. Thats what it seemed to me more than anything, here is this actor, here is that actor. The story wasn't compelling enough to stand on its own, and the cameos felt like thats all you really needed to see.

But I'll definitely see a sequel if they make one. They just need a better story. Let them be ghostbusters, give them a cool story about ghosts. dont worry about what actor can we put in "this role".

I saw this in theaters, and recall not being allowed in to see the frighteners because of our age--since it had MJF and was clearly influenced by Ghostbusters that was my no brainer first choice. We must have seen Escape as our backup. I disliked it at the time and have had no interest in seeing it again. But your rereview has me thinking I should.

You couldn't see Frighteners but were allowed to see Escape from L.A.? Weird, because they were both rated R. I say stream Escape off Netflix and give it the 15 minute test. You'll see pretty clearly what you're in for and then can decide if you're having fun or if I'm just off my rocker again.

Nothing too explicit but yeah some characters are a bit mouthy like the president's daughter and a few other side characters from the island. No nudity that I can recall but in the plastic surgery chop shop people can be seen carting around trays of freshly removed eyeballs, heads, and things. When people get shot you see the customary blood and so forth. It's one of those movies that you get accustomed to seeing edited on TV every so often and then when you finally watch it uncensored again you go "oh yeah, this is a little more hardcore than I remembered." But overall nothing too major.

I had forgotten what a dark and violent movie this is. First time watching it in close to 20 years. I enjoyed it in the theater but after Batman & Robin, End of Days, The 6th Day, etc., I basically lumped it in with all of Arnold's post-Cameron "crap" and never really went back to it. But Eraser is legit! Cheesy but satisfying, Caan makes a great villain and Vanessa Williams holds her own against Arnold. Rail gun effects are still cool to this day.

The Ward (2011) - 2.5/10

A John Carpenter movie that I never knew existed. Should be fun right? Ugh. Definitely his worst ever. I stuck it out because I could sense that it was going to have a twist and it did but even that was an uninspired letdown. The movie's biggest sin might have been that it didn't even feel like a Carpenter film. Too bad.

Took my Daughter, she liked it, but I think I liked it more. I think the difference is the level of expectation, she was very excited about it and I just went because she wanted to go. It's essentially Jungle Book meets E.T. She still liked it enough that she wants to buy it, but I honestly don't know how many repeat viewings it would really get.

Skip the 3D as it is so underutilized that I often wondered if I was even watching a 3D movie. The film is already visually dark, due to where much of it takes place and the 3D just makes it look all the darker.

For those with little one, an early scene might be too disturbing for them, as it involves Pete's family dying in an automobile crash.

10 Cloverfield Lane: 7.75/10

Very solid little suspense movie. Couldn't have cost to much to make, but it was extremely effective, and efficient. Seems like half of the big blockbusters lack even rudimentary storytelling chops. Makes me want to force everyone involved watch movies like this one.

You couldn't see Frighteners but were allowed to see Escape from L.A.? Weird, because they were both rated R. I say stream Escape off Netflix and give it the 15 minute test. You'll see pretty clearly what you're in for and then can decide if you're having fun or if I'm just off my rocker again.
Huh. Seemed like it was PG13. I must have seen something else that day then, because I really wanted to see Frighteners and couldn't.

The best overall audience rating metric I've run across is Cinemascore. They randomly survey moviegoers. And SS's score is a B+ there. Same as the Green Hornet. Slightly better than Catwoman, Elektra, Green Lantern, the Story Fantastic Four movies, and BvS, which all got B's. Almost all the Marvel Studios movies get A's.

So, my takeaway is that audiences are generally easy graders, but even there you have variation. And when they grade something below an A, tread carefully.

The widely reviled (here) Xmen Apocalypse even gets an A- there.

Hey Kara, that's the Cloverfield sequel, right? I didn't like the first one much.


Contact (1997) -- 7.9 / 10.

First viewing (I know..) - took me long enough, but it's a quality picture. Great performance by Jodie Foster, & Tom Skeritt made a great a** hole. James Woods is always good at that. LOVED John Hurt in this. McCornyHay was fine, but I'm not really a fan of his acting except for two movies; "A Time To Kill" & "Dazed & Confused". :lol

I didn't like how Jodie & he hooked up so soon, I found it annoying. I do also think that they could've explored some of the themes a little more in terms of Sagan's novel, but it's a two hour movie so.. the last third was interesting & left me wanting more I guess.

All in all, pretty good.

It's the same production company as Cloverfield, but I think the name was more for marketing than anything else. Not sure if they take place in the same "universe" or not. Totally different kind of movie, and this one was way better.

Bourne Legacy: 6.5/10

It was okay, but it seemed kinda pointless, and also highlighted the fact that all the Bourne movies are pretty much the same plot: the soldier “enhancement” program is going to be made public, so the secret government agency who created it must destroy all evidence of it, including all the operatives. Also, the climax was very anti-climatic.

Pete's Dragon (2016) - 8.5/10

Watching this movie with my kids made me feel like I was Frodo listening to Sam's speech about there still being good in the world worth fighting for. This is not a remake with self-referential winks to the audience or Easter Egg references to the original. Just an utterly earnest, warm hearted, expertly acted, character driven story that completely stands on its own. This is a film that treats adults and children alike with the utmost respect and does not coast on cheap sentimentality, rapid fire quips or money shot spectacle and I couldn't be more amazed that it went down *none* of those roads, especially in this day and age.

It probably would have benefited from just a little more levity, but it certainly didn't need to. It joins The WWitch, 10 Cloverfield Lane and The Shallows as another great surprise of 2016.

It was such a surprise, wasn't it?! I took my Daughter to see it, and I think I liked it more than her. It had an innocence to it that you don't see in many movies anymore, and it took its characters and subject matter seriously. Good acting, Directing and the characters werent one note cardboard cutouts. They could have made the "villain" a evil caricature, but they just made him a normal guy who maybe made the wrong decision one day. it's almost hard to believe this was a big studio summer movie.

It was SUCH a surprise. Absolutely not your usual cash grab remake with phoned in performances that cater to the ADD generation. Everyone brought their A game, it's almost a slow burn but you're never "waiting for the movie to start." It grabs you from the opening scene and doesn't let go.

It was totally Jungle Book meets E.T., and I don't mean that in a bad way. It takes it's time, but that felt refreshing, It's one of those movies that almost feels like it suspends time while your in the theater. I never expected to like this movie, but I really enjoyed it and have absolutely nothing bad to say about it. I'd rather take my Daughter to see this 100x over seeing Minions once.

Yep, agreed on all of the above. There were definitely similarities with E.T. and The Jungle Book as well as moments from The Never Ending Story and My Neighbor Totoro. But as you say not in a bad way, just inevitable parallels due to overlapping subject matter and not because it was "copying" those films.

I might have edited my previous post too late but I added a line acknowledging your comment about the "villain" not being a caricature. I liked that from his point of view Elliot was the aggressor so in his mind his actions made perfect sense.

Just got back from Ben Hur, it was a decent film.
Obviously it's nowhere near as engrossing and epic as the '59 version, but then again, people don't do those movies anymore...
I enjoyed Messala a lot more in this version, you could relate to the guy, whereas in the '59 version he was a total ****. Judah is also a lot more interesting, albeit a lot less heroic and iconic than his '59 counterpart (but then again, that was Heston in his prime, big sandals to fill).
The large Galley battle between the Romans and the Greeks is excellent, as is the chariot race. Both are really well filmed and edited.
Unfortunately, the rest of the movie isn't so well handled, and neither of the protagonists really have the charisma and gravitas of their '59 counterparts, and the movie suffers for it.
There is one scene that stands out for me as a good example of where this film falls short compared to the '59 version: when Judah finds his mother and sister, it is a devastating scene in the '59 version, here it falls flat and has none of the heart wrenching horror and sadness of the earlier movie.
Still, it's an interesting and at times spectacular movie.
6.5/10.

Ben Hur 2016 2/10 I was never raised with any kind of religious belief but I love films.I always stayed away from the strictly religious films even though they play on Television every year.I'M more interested in Fact so I have seen documenteries and such on faith based religion and belief.I was just never really interested in these films.I wanted to see this film because I love animation and great CGI work.But was told to watch the Original with Heston before I went to see this film.
I have never been a fan of CH always thought he was looking at himself while he acted so it was always Heston acting.
I could barley stand CH but it was the best in my personal opinion he's ever been in a film.And the film was absolutely gorgeous and so well done with no CGI.The battle scenes with the Armada is mind blowing for the time(except for some of the miniature shots) and the chariot race is totally kick ass with a great job on the matte work.The story has amazing detail and is told like a book.And the supporting actors were so good.
Sad to say the new film does not even come close to the original in any way.All the real depth of any spirituality is totally missing and the actors are pretty bad.Even funny at times.Too bad for MF as he seems to be becoming the hollywood actor for hire.If you know what I mean.

The Relic (1997) - 6.5/10

A decent and well produced 90's monster flick. Tom Sizemore being 1990's Tom Sizemore. Slick cinematography, lens flares galore, "Die Hard with a Monster," etc. Not great by any means but well put together for what it is and pretty entertaining from beginning to end.

Batman: The Movie (1966) - 3.5/10

Ugh. I started out being entertained as I often am while watching the TV show but I realized just how forgiving the 22 minute run time of each episode is. After about 45-50 minutes the movie really started to lose its charm and by the time it was over I was actively disliking it. Really, REALLY wore out its welcome. Even the one true laugh I got out of the film (Batman trying to get rid of the bomb) had to sabotage itself by actually recycling its own gags (running toward the nuns AGAIN, running toward the baby carriage AGAIN) in literally one scene.

I was often reminded of Schumacher's Batman & Robin and really do think that Joel accomplished what he set out to do, for better or worse. The 1997 and 1966 films really are pretty indistinguishable to me but if forced to pick one I'd go with B&R in a heartbeat.

The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957) 9.25/10

If you're a Raiders or TOD fan you MUST see this film. David Lean really does Spielberg better than Spielberg and Malick better than Malick. And on a side note since this film came out exactly 20 years before Star Wars it's interesting to see Obi-Wan Kenobi as he *really* would have looked in ROTS. :lecture

No Country For Old Men (2007) - 8.25/10

FINALLY saw this one. When this originally came out in 2007 our daughter was only a few months old and we hardly ever left the house for any length of time. Then this kind of dropped off the radar for quite a few years until I just now got to watch it off Netflix. The thing with the Coens is that they really make timeless films. This movie could have hit theaters *this year* and it still would have played just as well. Riveting from beginning to end, I did detract a little bit because I thought if faltered a bit with the ending. The car accident for you know who at the end pushed the "you never know what's going to happen, look how random everything is" just a little too far IMO. Still though, expert filmmaking for the most part.

The Martian ... 9/10. One of the best sci-fi movies I've seen in a long time. Clever cross between Castaway and Apollo 13.

I figured it was going to be one of those exhausting 'catastrophe-a-minute' sci-fi disaster movies (like Armageddon, for instance) ... where literally everything goes wrong, all the time, until the very last minute, and you leave the movie tired rather than entertained. It wasn't. The science was good, which is unusual (see, for instance, Armageddon, or, God-forbid, Mission to Mars). The problems weren't just random nonsense, but a genuine progression through the process. The solutions were clever -- though, having seen Apollo 13, I wondered how they didn't think of the 'gravity slingshot' solution sooner.

All-in-all, a very good movie.

He might also be the best Terminator since Arnold in T1. He even "fixes" his injuries like in TI and the way Woody Harrelson describes him in the hospital was similar to how Kyle Reese describes the T 800 to Sarah Connor. He doesn't even behave like a normal human.

Oh yeah. Like most Jokers, Ledger is more of a "cool" villain, imo. The only two scenes I felt Ledger was kind of scary was the "Why so serious?" scene, but the PG 13 rating hurts it because you can't see the kill, and the hostage scene because Ledger went from funny and playful to "LOOK AT ME!" scary in the blink of an eye. :lol

You'd be hard pressed to find a real film buff who thinks Star Wars is superior to John Huston's Directorial debut masterpiece. But then again, this a forum for blockbuster lovers, not film buffs.

I want to add the 'Universal' monster flicks & the original 1954 Godzilla film to my library, but they must be on moratorium here or something.

How lost would I be watching those having not seen any DBZ since the Buu saga?

You won't be lost at all. Battle of the Gods takes place a few years after the Buu saga. Resurrection "F" takes place after Battle of the Gods. In Resurection "F", Frieza returns and learns that Goku defeated Buu.

All seven combined? Well the PT really brings that average down doesn't it? :lol The Maltese Falcon was okay but unless you're a die hard Bogart or private eye fan I wouldn't rank it above other milestone films from that era. Casablanca was far superior and stands the test of time much better IMO. With regard to Maltese vs Star Wars well let's just say that in this case I do agree with the American Film Institute that SW is far superior.

Hate to dredge up a few day old argument but it's nice to see you stand up against the resident film snob. I agree wholeheartedly on your rating of MF. It's nice see some challenge the status quo that if a movie is old, it must be great.

Yeah, and just because a film is popular doesn't make it inherently inferior either. There are great films in all eras, some that went relatively unnoticed, others that were instant blockbusters.

Each era has its films that are arguably overrated as well, and yes that includes even some "classics" from the 40's.

Cool beans. I'll be on the lookout for these two.

The Bronze - 6.75/10

Fairly funny film about a washed up, entitled Olympic Bronze Medalist who gets a second chance to make something more out of her life by coaching an up and coming Gymnast from her home town. With the exception of one scene, the laughs are mostly internal. As for that one scene, it alone makes the movie worth a rental, if you've ever wondered what sex between two gymnasts might look like, this movie provides a very funny answer to that.

It's rated R for a reason, do not let your kids watch this movie.
