The Tourist - 5/10 - Boring movie with a meh twist.

The Omega Man - 7/10 - Not bad for a 70's flick. I liked it more than I Am Legent. I prefer Last Man On Earth.

Rollerball (2002) - 2/10 - What a ____ fest of a movie. It was all around terrible.

Robocop - 8/10 - Still a very good dark 80's movie. Awesome score.

Robocop 2 - 6.5 - Not a bad followup but a bit drawn out.

Nah, I's just kidding. I figured the Nolan fanboys would come out of the woodwork getting on my case, but I reckon it's too late. I really liked it. Nolan explores interesting themes in an interesting way that you really can't do in, say, a book.

totally crap imo, most on here though liked it.:dunno

Jennifer's Body - 3/10 - It wasn't as bad as I thought it was, but yea, terrible acting on the part of the star. Would have been better if the blonde chick showed some bare bewbs.

Splice - 6.5/10 - Started out interesting and just got weird getting some mutant incest loving fun!

Planet Terror - 7/10 - While not really a "grindhouse" movie, this is a fun "bad" movie. The cast, characters, the dialogue, gore and story are just nuts.

Death Proof - 9/10 - A true "grindhouse" movie. I love it. Russell is awesome as Stuntman Mike and car scenes kick ass.

This film is incredibly overrated, and it is average at best. It's laughable this film received a 9.0/10 on IMdB ratings. This is one of the least enjoyable films i've watched in years. Movies are made to entertain, and recieves a D- for entertainment value, Cool plot & idea, but terrible flow and average execution.

It's said Nolan spent over 10 years writing this script...some see it as gold, i see it as fool's gold.

OMG. Did THAT suck! Very surprisingly bad writing. The Good Guys on Fox is 10x better than that as a funny buddy cop show throwback from the 80s.

LOL at the Big Lebowski talk! I just watched it last week for the first time and thought it was just "okay" too. Pretty much what I was expecting.

BTW, what's going on with Netflix now? I noticed that Inception, the Other Guys and the A Team are not going to be available til January! WTF? Is this some new deal so that DVDs/BRDs have a chance to sell? Totally sucks!:mad:

I underastand you're a car guy, but i never really liked Death Proof. I own both Grindhouse films and i find Planet Terror to be superior.

I just couldn't get over the countless Quentin Tarrentino "foot shots" and the absurd dialoge between the females...it drove me nuts just listening to those babbling bimbos...lines like, "What he said, she said, he said, is really what he said." Tarrentino is incredibly ADD - OCD and watching this film and listening to the lines just drove me CRAZY.



But i will say the Scenes with Kurt Russel, specifically with the car were TOP NOTCH....and DEATH PROOF has THE BEST death scene ever filmed, which is a HUGE PLUS.

EVILFACE

Then you missed the point of the movies, it's not how "good" the movies are. Death Proof is just like the 70's grindhouse the two movies are ment to mimic. Machete is far closer to a grindhouse movie than Planet Terror which everything seemed forced to make it a "bad" film. It is still fun though.

Grindhouse or not, Planet Terror was much better than DeathProof..but i get what you're saying about the films looing like throwbacks...in that case, Death Proof does that better.

I found Planet Terror to be fun and enjoyable for the greater part of the film. I found Death Proof interesting only when Kurt Russell or the car were on-screen.

Less filler, more fun. Love the fake trailers too. It's great they made Machete into a real movie and Hobo with a Shotgun is coming up next.


but i get what you're saying about the films looking like throwbacks...in that case, Death Proof does that better.


yes. Death Proof gets the technical look and feel much better. Rodriguez at times looks shot on high def and run through some software dirt and grime filters. At least he stayed away from all of the Sin City/Spy Kids/Sharkboy and LavaGirl green screen crap and went on location.

But I laughed out loud at stuff in Planet Terror. DeathProof just had a good adrenaline scene.



I found Planet Terror to be fun and enjoyable for the greater part of the film. I found Death Proof interesting only when Kurt Russell or the car were on-screen.

Agreed. The segment about the first group of girls needed to be cut WAY down for time.

I also found the anachronisms distracting (cell phones/texting, recent cars in the final car chase.

BUT... the big chase at the end of the film rocked.

yep....Blockbuster was getting their butt kicked by netflix and went almost bankrupt. So they signed a major deal with most of the major movie studios to delay their new releases to Netflix. Pretty dirty tactics I guess but you gotta do what you gotta do.

I agree, Season 1 is my least favorite, but it still is pretty good IMO.

I like the fact, that with each season, Blackadder is becoming smarter, more cunning and conniving, while his rank in the British hierarchy gets lower. Imagine, if he would be as clever in Season 1, as he was in Season 4... He'd be king in no time :lol

Avatar (Extended Edition): 8/10
Just not as good of a cut as the theatrical release. Some interesting sequences, but nothing was included that I think has to be in the film. Still, fun to see the longer version and while the new "earth" sequence is unecessessary, still interesting to see earth in the film. But overall I still think the original version is the one I'll rewatch.

Shrek Forever After: 7/10
Pretty good movie, I know it received a lukewarm reception; but for having no real expectations I came away liking it quite a bit. Not as good as 1 or 2, but waaaay better than 3. And a good way to end out the series.

Shrek Forever After for me too - 7/10. I didn't expect much, and to be honest I'm not a big Shrek fan anyway. I never really got all the love for the first two. This was a decent flick, with some funny moments, and my kids really enjoyed it.

It also helped that it has a true 7.1 track, something that not enough films provide these days, AND they took great advantage of it. I particularly liked the wall shaking bass when he did his ogre yell.

THe A-Team 8/10 Totally exceeded my expectations. Loved every minute of it. Liam Neeson was a great fit for Hanibal. In fact every actor nailed their part. Great casting. For a guy that grew up with the A-Team I don't think they could have done the show any more justice than they did with this film. Bravo to whoever wrote/directed this film. Highly recommend it if you watched the show growing up.

They played Indy 2 on TV the other day and I watched it for the first time in over 20 years. I didn't like it when it first came out. Now I actually think it was fixable but for Kate Capshaw. She was just awful. I don't know if she's ever done a film where she was great, but it wasn't this one.

The sad thing is there's some diamonds in the rough that I overlooked way back. Harrison Ford is actually acting here! He has some screen presence that he almost never brings to a film nowadays. There's some fun action if only Capshaw would shut up.
This movie screams for a fan edit like the Adywan Star Wars cut.

Most important is Temple of Doom is an old school ILM film, something from an age gone by.

Olivia Wilde is gorgeous

This movie made me realize how big of a hippie Jeff Bridges really is.

3D is pointless imo

Time spent playing the games.

Jeff Bridges when he yells/gets angry. Me no like.

TRON Legacy - 7/10 - Good FX, some hawt chicks, very average predictable story. About on par with the original.

Night of the Living Dead (1968) - 9/10 - The turning point for modern horror. Watched it again since I was going to be watching the remake. Still holds up as the classic it is.

Night of the Living Dead (1990) - 6/10 - It was ok. Characters were more campy this time around and even though Savini was directing it, the original had far more gore. The chick playing Barbara was somewhat cute.

Yes there was a lot of "style" in AIW, but it also moved me. And it had a lot to say.


It is a movie about believing the "impossible". Believing in yourself. Finding strength you didn't know you had. Being willing to go against peoples expectations for you.



I've had this hanging in my bathroom for years and I look at it every day:

I didn't really like this movie when I first saw it, but I enjoyed it much more this time. Probably helps that I haven't read the books recently which likely made the film hard to judge on its own. It seems like overall the films work pretty well if you don't consider how much is lost/changed to make them into movies.

Almost don't want to admit to watching it, but morbid curiosity keeps me involved until I see all 4. This one still largely sucks and has some of the worst dialog since AOTC, but I did not want to smash my head against a rock as much as I did with New Moon.

That bugged me. It seemed like it was pulled out of the writer's butt, when you consider he was watching marauders from high above at one point, or he shoots with pinpoint accuracy gunmen from a rooftop. "The only way that works is if he's a miracle worker" which my wife thought was the whole point.

Suddenly I felt like I had watched a big budget "Left Behind" :yuck

Also there too much about civilization that has been forgotten in the span of thirty years.

The thought didn't cross my mind until the very end of the film, as I suppose it isn't supposed to. I didn't re-watch it to see if there were instances where a blind man couldn't do X, Y, or Z, so I can't say for sure. My thought right after watching was that he wasn't, because, for instance, he seemed to see that the guy hanging was wearing boots, he seemed to be looking at his Ipod at one point, and when he was ambushed, he looked up and around in various direction instead of just sitting still, trying to listen and smell. Maybe just a guy with bad vision? Or someone who somehow gained sight after the nuclear blast or whatever it was? No way a real blind person could walk in all the new places he did (bar, house, etc.) without tripping and bumping into things if he wasn't using a wand--unless he is Daredevil.

It kind of had a Zatoichi "Blind Swordsman" feel to it. Sure its hard to believe a blind person could do so much, but therein lies the fun. I would still guess he was blind pre-apocalypse which would make sense with his ability to read braille and comfort with the environment. Also; I've seen a few interesting shows where visually impaired people were able to get around really well using echolocation.

Were you asleep?

The entire movie was saying that NOTHING is ever perfect, except what's right in front of you. You can strive for perfection, but what you fail to do is look at what you have. And that in itself is perfection.

That's the ENTIRE message of Tron Legacy. And it wasnt even hidden.

Flynn said that at the end of the movie.

That bugged me. It seemed like it was pulled out of the writer's butt, when you consider he was watching marauders from high above at one point, or he shoots with pinpoint accuracy gunmen from a rooftop. "The only way that works is if he's a miracle worker" which my wife thought was the whole point.

6/10

She's right. He was a prophet. It's the reason I loved the movie.





Suddenly I felt like I had watched a big budget "Left Behind" :yuck
6/10

No.

Left Behind (which I will never watch) crams doctrine down your throat whereas Book of Eli is a more generic movie about faith.


In this day and age faith is dead for most people so I thought Book of Eli was very courageous for treating faith in such a reverent way.



Also (as I said in the Book of Eli thread) in a way it is an anti religion movie. The villain represents religion and the way it has been used to control people.


There is a clear difference between faith and religion.

Were you asleep?

The entire movie was saying that NOTHING is ever perfect, except what's right in front of you. You can strive for perfection, but what you fail to do is look at what you have. And that in itself is perfection.

That's the ENTIRE message of Tron Legacy. And it wasnt even hidden.

Flynn said that at the end of the movie.



Meh. Guess that "message" just doesn't touch me.






It's just funny you call Tron style over substance with no emotion in it...where is Alice is basicly the most unemotional movie ever made by a person. :dunno


In your humble opinion of course.


Personally, I was tearing up in a couple parts of AIW. Not so much with TRON.

Although I came close for the part when the kid base jumps at the end and his Dad says "Radical Man" and then the kick ass old school music kicks in. But that's not enough to make the movie a rewatch for me.

Buddy of mine go back and fourth on this. He says he is 100% and I say it could go either way.


My opinion is that yes...the end showed that he absolutely was intended to be.


But the rest of the movie went way too far to cover it up.

Edit - And it seemed to me that that revelation had zero impact/power in the end because of it. But I found that message easy to look beyond. The movie was still great even without that part working.

I wouldn't say garbage. I will say I wish I waited and watched it for free on a premium channel. Same old same old from the one trick pony. You know who the "devil" is right from the get go. Not hard to figure out. Then of course you have a twist. Which admittedly I missed but was like that's it. That's the movie. Not worth $5.95. Check out The Town instead.

Get Him to the Greek: 6 / 10. Some funny bits, but as a whole...meh.

The Town: 8 / 10. Not as good as I expected it to be. My main gipe is that

Ben Affleck / Doug MacRay got away at the end. Yes, he was the main character in the movie, but he shouldn't have been "rewarded" by getting away. Counterpoint, Heat is by far my favorite crime movie. I loved Robert De Niro's character, and liked him more than Al Pacino's detective. But at the end, he didn't get away.

Again, it was a good movie, but from the trailers, I thought it would be the next Heat. Interesting how Ben Affleck's character was watching Heat at home in the first half of the movie. A nice homage.

There are subtle hints throughout the movie. For example towards the beginning when he goes in the house where he eats the cat he feels his way along the shelf and is knocking against plates. This seemed odd to me at the time, but I kind of forgot about it until later.

So, he was blind the whole time. However, I am wiling to allow that he had some sight that would allow him to look toward the sun and other lights.


When Gary Oldman says "He can't be!!!" and they pan up to show the pages, and I suddenly realized the implication, I became overwhelmed with emotion. Utterly overwhelmed.

The point of this reveal is that it suddenly becomes obvious that nothing he did on screen could be done under his own power. He already seemed to have superhuman abilities, but when we find out the truth about Eli's condition, the nature and origin of those abilities become clear. Makes me think of this:


"Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong."

- 2 Corinthians 12:10 [Webster's Bible Translation]


For which cause I please myself in my infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ. For when I am weak, then am I powerful.

- 2 Corinthians 12:10 [Douay-Rheims Bible]


"Wherefore I am well pleased in infirmities, in damages, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses -- for Christ; for whenever I am infirm, then I am powerful."

- 2 Corinthians 12:10 [Young's Literal Translation]



The point was he had faith and all that crap. He had the power of god on his side. Good for him. A badass doesnt need anyone's help! Especially god! :D

Fair enough...and in the end...

the fact that the Bible was Braille

should have been enough for me to figure that out. But I still think that some of his actions went too far to mask that detail and damped the overall impact of the revelation...at least to me. Hell...they completely made me miss it.

Once again, though...great movie, regardless.

Pontypool 7.5/10

I love thrillers that utilize a single room as the setting for most of the entire running time i.e. like Cube, Saw, Devil, etc etc so after reading a feature on single-room flicks, I sought out Exam and Pontypool. Both were great watches that take advantage of limited space and budget without coming off as cheap stage plays. Pontypool especially works well as a low-key horror movie.

Watched a few this month - here they are in order:

Unstoppable - 8/10 - really enjoyed it for what it is; solid action film with some great tension

Forgetting Sarah Marshall - 7/10 - enjoyed it a lot more than I was expecting to, as I'm not a fan of the "Judd Apatow" style films... but the musical Dracula with puppets sold it for me!

Wall-E - 10/10 - it was about my 50th viewing (I have a 2 year old who loves robots) - love this film so much I'm totally fine with watching it 50 more times (or more); all of Pixar's are a 10/10 for me except Cars and Rata...

Black Swan - 9.5/10 - awesome, beyond words; would have given it a 10, but a couple things were a *tiny* bit off for me

Legion - 5/10 - not horrible, but not stand-out either; messy storytelling, but cool idea. Shows that Paul Bettany is a great actor, whatever the script (one of my favorite rolls of his is Chaucer in A Knight's Tale)

TRON: Legacy - 4/10 - boring and messy; would have ranked it lower if it weren't for a couple awesome scenes

TRON - 5/10 - liked the story a bit better in this one and felt a little more for the characters
