5 Best Spielberg Films

1. Raiders of the Lost Ark
2. Schindlers List
3. Jaws
4. E.T.
5. (Tie)
Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind
Saving Private Ryan

I agree with that list except I wouldn't say SPR is tied with C3K. I'd put SPR at 6th though as far as personal favorites I enjoy Temple of Doom more.

Yeah, Temple is a tough one to place. The kid in me wants to put it higher, the critic in me shakes his finger and reminds me of Kate Capshaw and jumping from a plane in a raft. I won't deny that I still enjoy watching it though. I'd probably be more apt to watch Temple if it were on than Schindler.

Yeah, this was showing last night and I was watching parts of it here and there while surfing the channels.
Instant classic for me when I saw it the year it was released.
I've argued that Cameron's Avatar is a ripoff as it's nothing more than the sci-fi version of Dances With Wolves.

I don't know why I haven't purchased it yet in blu. I guess I'm holding off for a possible 30th anniversary pack.
No matter. I can enjoy this in any format. Easy 9/10. :rock

EDIT:

Daredevil (2003) - 4.5/10
I think the first half of the movie was good. I liked the "comic book" feel of it, without going overboard with panels like Incredible Hulk did. The second half was hard to watch though, and the music is very, very dated.

Was scrolling through the movie folder and settled on Oliver Stone's World Trade Center. Second viewing of this. Feels kinda hard to review a 9/11 film in a way. Whether it's a good film or not chances are reminders of that day will stir up emotion.

I'm nervous about flying anyway. Hate the idea that if something does go wrong you're (usually) ****ed and there's nothing at all you can do about it. At least on a sinking ship there's freedom of movement and a window of time to escape, heck if you had a life jacket you could just jump into the sea as a last resort.

That's one of my biggest fears, but it is the "safest way to travel". I just have to trust that, I guess.

On another note, I was just watching a documentary about the space race and how the moon landing may have been faked, and they talked about what would happen if something went wrong and an astronaut was stuck drifting through space. It bothered me, because what could you do?

I can safely say I never want to be an astronaut.

I finally got around to watching Avengers: AoU the other day -- 7.5 / 10

I liked it fine, & was entertained enough. :lol

I don't mind saying though that I'm over RDJ as Stark, time for a new guy. ScarJo too, she does zero for me. When I heard James Spader's voice the first time in the movie, it brought back my desire to see him play Lex Luthor, a no brainer choice IMO. All the other actors that folks have mentioned for LL are strikes as far as I'm concerned.

That said, Ultron's arc was kinda rushed & weak compared to what it could've been like. Such a giant intelligence, thwarted by Stark's software butler slipping through the back door or whatever.. :lol

Anyway, what do I know.

Beverly Hills Cop (1984) - 7.75/10

I was very surprised how well this held up. I hadn't watched it in over 20 years and when I saw that Netflix added it this month I thought I'd watch the beginning because I remember a cool opening chase where a truck demolishes a bunch of cars. Ended up getting sucked in and watched the whole thing. Murphy was really funny back in the day and I found myself laughing out loud at lines that I had long forgotten.

It's been a long time since I saw an R-rated comedy that didn't have a single bodily function/genitalia joke.

It would have been so easy for them to run with that joke but instead it was played for laughs to show Axel's ingenuity and also so he could make fun of the way the black cop said it later. No way would any comedy in the last 15 years have gone that route.

Every time the phrase was uttered it was in direct reference to a literal banana in a literal tailpipe. Nothing more. :clap

It's weird to think about my childhood as a Golden Age, but damnit the 80's were incredible when it came to comedies. Blues Brothers, Stripes, National Lampoon's Vacation, Beverly Hills Cop, Trading Places, Ghostbusters are all comedy gold. Hell, I'll take Goldie Hawn's movies over most of the comedies we have today.

4/10 I think some comic media is just powerful because of the reader interpretations. I loved the animation and voice acting, but something was lost in the translation to film. Its no where near as powerful as the grapgic novel.

Instead of being injailed again, in the Korean version he has hypnosis done so that he will forget more or less he's her father and stay with her to keep her happy and hide the truth from her. They have a hug at the end, and he's letting out a smile... which then turns somewhat twisted and upset. So it's unknown if the hypnosis worked or not.

Sons of Anarchy, Season 1. 8/10. Very good start. Really compelling ending. It's interesting and strange that, in a guy's-guy show about an outlaw biker gang ... Gemma (the wife of the leader, and mother of the main character) may be the most interesting character in the show thus far. She's clever. She's cutthroat. She's smart. She seems to be the only one who sees everything. And, she's still feminine in a way a lot of cutthroat female characters can't pull off, with an endearing 'housewife' and 'protective mother/grandmother' side to her.

Took me an embarrasingly long time to figure out who/what the hell "Sam Crow" was.

Not quite a top-tier show yet. But, I can see how it might be in a season or two. Most of the great shows don't really hit their stride until seasons 2, 3, or 4. Starting Ssn 2 in the next week or so.

The new one right? I just went to an early screening of this movie, I love horror movies and so far Rob Zombie's 31 and the new blair witch left a lasting impression on me. Both of them do not dwell on cheap jumps or scares, tons of suspension and leave you to fear the ambient sound what's around you and it's awesome.

THe new Blair Witch on the other hand uses this perfectly, builds up paranoia and makes you question everyone, but my only wtf moment was just the witch herself witch should have been left out as a whole to add more mystery to the character but nice to see a change of pace. I could hear people say it sucked, but I actually left satisfied and hopeful about it, it's a good premise, but the audio on this film is fantastic.

First half offers nothing but cheap, loud jump scares (why is everything so LOUD?) but once it hits the last 30 minutes it's very entertaining. The very end is weak.

If you love the original I'd say matinee it with expectations in check. It's worth watching the final stretch.

The Dark Knight (2008) - 8.75/10

Gave this a spin after four or five years. Wow, VERY rewarding when you stick it out to the end. The finale was actually quite a bit better than I had remembered it. I had recalled the final moments with Dent and Gordon's family to be anti-climactic after the resolution with the Joker but it actually went pretty quickly and I found myself kind of getting goosebumps when the music swelled on that close-up of Batman as he realized what he would have to do in order to protect Dent's reputation.

My main issues with the film are just that darn first hour and to a lesser extent Maggie Gyllenhaal's character. Up until around the time that the judge and first commissioner get taken out and then the assassination attempt against the mayor at the funeral the film just really is a chore to sit through. The opening bank heist lost its luster long ago, I'm not evenly particular engrossed by the mob meeting/pencil trick/Hong Kong extraction/Harvey's fund raiser bits. The first hour isn't bad per se, just not very compelling. There are a few moments during that time that I like sprinkled here and there, but that alone is enough to keep me from revisiting the film as often as I'd normally like.

Still some jarringly silly moments like the idiot SWAT dude riding shotgun in the armored car who won't shut up and just the pervasive panic among so many of "Gotham's finest" throughout. And I thought it was surprisingly stupid of Alfred not to give Bruce Maggie's letter. "She would have waited for me Alfred." "Yes Master Bruce, but only as a friend. Here." *gives note* Then Bruce gets his closure and can move on with his life. But Alfred thought it would be best to give Bruce even MORE ammo against the Joker and the entire criminal element as a whole? "Yep, you're right sir, you would have lived happily ever after with her but once again criminals ruined your life. Have fun in your permanent rage." Alfred really thought that would be better than just letting Bruce take rejection like a man and then move on? Mind boggling.

I would say that pretty much everything Maggie related brings the picture down a notch and when she thankfully exits things really pick up. There's even about a 45 minute sequence in there from the Joker interrogation straight through to the exploding hospital that might even be the single best 45 sequential minutes ever in a superhero film. Hard to say what is definitively the "best" anymore though with so many quality films in the genre now.

I still prefer Civil War to Dark Knight but I would probably rate TDK a bit higher than Begins now and right about on par with The Winter Soldier. So even though I spent more time describing the elements I found lacking I'm still giving this film high, high praise. The second half is just so good. When Nolan is firing on all cylinders his work really is some of the best in the business. If TDK didn't have those jarring missteps with Maggie's character and Alfred and a first hour that was just a little more interesting this movie would be a 10/10 on par with ESB and FOTR.

He was going to give him the letter later, but then he burned it because the truth was not good enough...or something. See, they're all a bunch of lying, deceptive mofos in the Nolanverse. Bruce lying to Lucius about the sonar tech, Lucius lying to Lau, Alfred lying to Bruce, Joker lying to everybody, Gordon lying to his wife and kids, Batman and Gordon lying to Gotham to protect the Dent act. It's good to see all their lies exposed in TDKR....so they can go on and create more lies :lol

Khev
09-17-2016, 11:21 AM
Well I think the lying (or "holding my cards close to my chest" as Bruce liked to put it) was just part of the theme across all three films of "how much like a criminal do you have to be to defeat them" that many of the characters had to ask themselves. You look into the abyss/it looks into you type stuff. I just think that some of the characters' actions seemed uncharacteristically foolish. I don't mind grey characters or moral quandaries/damned if you do or don't scenarios, I just get taken out of a scene if I think someone isn't using logic or their own smarts to the best of their ability.

I'm not saying that that makes TDK a bad movie obviously, it just committed some of my pet peeve mistakes that my top tier films tend not to. Also I think the "realistic" (for lack of a better word) approach to the film actually amplified some of those head scratching moments that might otherwise have been less pronounced in other genre pictures.

But just so I'm clear I really enjoyed the overall experience of the film.

I can buy that. Bruce thinking that he was robbed of the same "happily ever after" that Harvey lost does give him the opportunity to be the bigger man compared to path chosen by Two-Face. It just felt wrong to have the movie end with Alfred not telling him. I guess I feel like they just went one step too far with the compartmentalized lies, so to speak.

The movie ends with Bruce and Gordon lying to the people of Gotham and how much of that lie was perpetuated by the lie of Bruce losing Maggie, which didn't happen in the way that he thought it did? What was the point of that? To show that Bruce was just another pawn of misinformation? To me that undermines almost all of his world class detective bird's eye view perspective on things.

That makes sense and why he finally told him the truth in TDKR. I would have done the same at that moment, but I wouldn't have waited so long to tell him the truth. Burning that latter was a mistake, but maybe Alfred didn't think it would have long term consequences.

At least "No, but I know how you got THESE" was a great comeback as opposed to what he said to Bane when they faced off on the steps at the end of TDKR.

I don't think audiences would have rolled their eyes if Bruce said something to the effect of "This city will outlive both of us." Then you could take it as him declaring that his victory would lead to Gotham prospering long after their future deaths or as a hint that he may indeed be dying soon.

Obviously almost any comeback, including silence, would have been better than what he said in the film.

All the Way (LBJ biopic): 7.5/10

Great performance by Cranston. One of the more overlooked presidents of modern times in my opinion. Certainly largely responsible for seismic shifts in the political landscape still being felt today, and this movie does a good job of outlining this.

If I'm not mistaken, that pic is from a Forever Evil tie-in about Bane. FE came out in 2013 and concluded in 2014. Nu52 started in 2011 though, and Bane looked like this for the most part:

http://static6.comicvine.com/uploads/original/9/93287/3230968-2094762588-30752.jpg

http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/8/80103/2498680-2268174_bane_new_522.jpg

Now, considering TDKR came out in 2012, one year before Forever Evil and Arkham War (that mini from the pic) started, so I'd say that the above appearance was inspired by the movie, and the first Nu52 look was inspired by the Arkham games.

The Dark Knight Rises (2012) - 8/10

There's no denying that the narrative has its flaws but I don't know, at the end of the day the experience of watching that film from beginning to end is just something I find to be very rewarding. Like all Nolan Bat films it's all about enduring the lackluster first hour. BB definitely has the best first half of all three films, that's for sure.

And I still rank TDKR higher than the first Avengers flick.

7/10 for the excellent acting and as a film that states in the beginning it's a Dramatization.

I'M not a big fan of Oliver Stones directing but it was well done and he did a good job of keeping it interesting.I always liked JGL he is a smart young actor who chose wisely doing a number of very good indie films early in his career.In which he was always outstanding.A lot of very good actors in this film and they are all good.Be ready for some hero worship,this is a pro Snowden film.

A lot of things have come to light to portray ES as a traitor especially right before this film came out.Most of it about the chronology of when he made his decision to steal the information and whether it was out of anger over past reprimands with his superior or a true patriotic desire to alert the public of U.S. Government survalliance throughout the World.

Equals: 6/10

With Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart set in the future where people have suppressed emotions (like Vulcans) but every once in a while some people start to feel again. It's beautifully shot and has a very cool setting and production design and is a lot like THX 1138. It's got an annoying plot point in the climax that comes about from a miscommunication which is really annoying, and leads to an ambiguous ending. It's interesting though.

It's funny, that I was an early critic of Avengers when everyone else was on that hype train. But I've come to appreciate it a lot more as time has gone on for what it does well. You just have to approach it with the right attitude IMO. Avengers doesn't have the dramatic weight and cinematographic beauty of TDKR. But the story is more efficient, and as crowd-pleasing big budget action films go, it certainly does its job well. I would give Avengers the edge, because I didn't feel very fulfilled at the end of TDKR, and it left me with a sour taste in my mouth with "Robin" and nodding Alfred, though neither movie is one of my favorites in the genre.

Khev
09-20-2016, 08:14 AM
I guess if I were to rate each movie solely on the last five seconds of each film then I'd give the edge to Avengers but the rest of the movie just doesn't really do it for me anymore. I did like it when it came out, but that was more on account of it seemingly being the biggest and best team-up movie that we'd ever get. Now that it doesn't offer anything particularly satisfying dramatically or visually and the novelty is long gone all I see is a sequence of uninteresting scuffles and that horrendous Cap suit. Galaga still cracks me up every time though.

The only thing I can really knock points off for, is for that horrible design of the bat(wing) and a crawling first 40 minutes. But it's still one of the greatest to end a trilogy. solid 8.5/10 in my book.

It's seriously difficult for me to rate the film because it's high quality stuff while not trying to be Oscar bait material but I just wasn't particularly entertained. That might be because the film delivers its most horrendous moment so early on that everything else did not register with me. It could also be that I recently watched The Conjuring 2 which is far less original than The VVitch but has more thrilling moments. Funny thing is I like the less Hollywood ending of The VVITCH more than The Conjuring 2 but somehow I felt unsatisfied with The VVitch.

I know a lot of people who like the Hulk still love The Avengers. It definitely was a love letter to Hulk and IM fans. I wouldn't say Avengers has been over-exposed (no more so than the entire MCU as a whole.) I saw it twice in the theater and maybe 3 or 4 times since. TDKR I think I'm up to four times now. Obviously I've seen many films more than double those amounts and those haven't diminished in my eyes.

Funny, people hate the Bat but I really like it. It's weird that the made it an ant lion but I think it works in the movie. I love that final chase at the end. I think TDKR suffers if you watch bits and pieces of it and think about its sillier moments after the fact. Of course you notice silly moments while watching the movie especially the one-two punch of "no I came back to stop you" and Talia's death but I found that when I invested the full two and a half hours to experience it in one sitting it was still one heck of an experience.

It's a dropoff in quality yes but so was ROTJ, Last Crusade, and Alien 3. I put TDKR in the same category as those (as opposed to say Spider-Man 3.) And man, the IMAX cinematography is SO freaking gorgeous.

The Revenant still got a limited theatrical release on Christmas 2015.

It only played at one-off festivals until showing in theaters on February 19th.

I agree that it was Baldwin's best movie role (his 30 Rock character is his best!), and I would say he's been the best Jack Ryan too. I even like him over Harrison Ford, who I love as an actor but felt he just wasn't right for Ryan.

I like both Ford and Baldwin in the role. I've yet to watch Affleck and Pines in their movies as Jack Ryan.

I think the movie was so novel in its approach back in the day that it covered up some of the flaws. McTiernan's style probably had a lot to do with making the film seem much better back then than what it actually is.

I saw it again a couple years back and didn't find the dialogue problematic. I surely don't think films have progressed, to the point where we now have much better dialogue than we had in the past. Films in the '70s, generally speaking, were a high water mark in this regard.

The movie was actually released first with the gray glasses, using the same method we are using today. It never became popular so they used the cheaper red/blue method later to save on costs.

Didn't even know today's method existed back then, interesting.

Here's a very interesting and in-depth discussion about the 3D filming process and History behind the movie.

If this is the same movie I remember then it is a classic slasher flick. I'd put it up there with My Bloody Valentine from the 80's.

Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) - 7/10

Like TDKR I think this film gets a bum rap. No it isn't great but it does have great action and visual effects, great characters, and Spader hamming it up in very entertaining fashion. The Korea truck chase is basically Russo-esque and the one-two punch of the Sokovia action finale coupled with Ultron and Vision in the woods, really good stuff.

The running "language" joke falls flat after multiple viewings but the running gag with the hammer and humor at the party still works. The music was even quite good which is never a given in a Marvel flick. ;)

I'd actually forgotten that War Machine was part of the "New Avengers" at the end. Interesting that he and Vision were both absent from Lagos, I'm assuming due to their inability to "blend in" per se.

I really feel AOU is not necessary at all. I was watching TWS last night on tv again, and the film ends with Cap going after Bucky and CAP3 literally continues that story perfectly without having to watch AOU. To me AOU, is almost like a self contained story or comic or like one of those X FILES monster of the week episodes that deviates from the main storyline.

Khev
09-23-2016, 08:59 AM
I agree that AoU isn't necessary other than giving backstory on Vision and Scarlet Witch. Otherwise CW more or less follows TWS and the "Sokovia Accords" could have just been named after any number of destructive events. But still it serves as a fun filler movie if you want to call it that.

AOU is a good flick. Aside from the interesting idea of superheroes doing as much damage as good it also has the balls to cast Tony as, essentially, the villain. Which leads very naturally to his stance in CW.

We had one of those VCR's that you could "tune" to get better reception and the scrambling technology was a joke back then. All they did was add background noise to the signal and I'd tune it out to record the scrambled channels.:yess:

Yeah. One thing I noticed in AoU is how inconsistent Quicksilver's speed is. The guy can run across a room, grab a gun out of someone's hand, remove the clip and carefully, expertly, deliberately remove every round from the magazine and stand them up in a perfect little row on the table and then go back across the room in the blink of an eye? ****, that's WAY faster than the X-Men QS. :lol I now rule his death an obvious suicide.

(here's that Italian flick with boobs n blood).

It no Dawn of the Dead.....lots of scenes clearly added because they figured "Hey lets get a zombie to fight a shark... or lets shot what happens when a zombie it hit with a shovel"

That eye VS Splinter scene though.......

Its a good background flick.....

Rewatching some recent Marvel fims:

Avengers Age of Ultron 7.5/10 Forgot how good this movie was. Only saw it once in the theater and liked it but felt no rush to see it again. Glad I did. Enjoyed it a lot more the second time without all the hype surrounding its release.

Captain America Civil War 8/10 What a fun ride with great characters and and a good plot. Marvel has found the magic to making these types of films that I can enjoy on a character-building level as much as I enjoy the humor and the action.

BUT...lol...I also liked how they showed his speed to be taxing. He's shown out of breath and exhausted after big moves in AOU. A quick move across Gollum's office is nothing a piece of candy can't replenish but moving people to safety in front of....the heavy thing I can't remember...takes the wind out of him.

I'm not arguing charisma - that Horror Story kid almost saves X-Men Badpurplelips (how'd I do, Riddick?). But I liked seeing the exertion take a toll.

I found a nice cheap copy of 'SWAMP THING' the other day - & enjoyed it! -- 7.5 / 10

Not an award winner by any means, but a DC comic book film from a bygone era that has that old school charm, & the lo-fi production values make it endearing (for lack of a btter term). Wes Craven being the director gives it a little cred too I guess, but I just loved how rough & 'Troma'-esque it looks. :lol

The ST costume in the sequel looks miles better, but I understand that movie is pretty bad.. I'll probably watch it once at least anyway.

I actually haven't read the book properly, but I've checked out various panels & art, so I'm at least familiar with the essence of what it's about. I tried to order a copy through a local comic book shop years ago, but the lazy plebs never followed through or got back to me about it.

Anyway, I've been reading the comments in here, & it seems diapproval of the movie is fairly universal.
