Halloween (1978) - 9/10

Now this is a great movie.







I get that it's supposed to be grindhouse, but that doesn't excuse it from being a pile of crap.

But..it is. Everything was done on purpose. All the goofy lines, the silly story...it was made to make you laugh. That's the point. :lol

A Trip to the Moon (1902) Can't really rate this one, it's the first Science Fiction movie that we know of, if it wasn't for it we wouldn't have Alien or Star Wars. It's interesting, a silent short film such as this could create a whole new Genre of film. Check it out if you want to.

La Femme Nikita (The original from 1990) 8/10 I know some people can't handle foriegn films, but I'd suggest you check this one out. Especially if your a fan of Leon The Professional or the Bourne films.

The only things I didn't like was the Porno soundtrack and the ending, other then that solid spy thriller here.

Terminator 3: 5/10

Hadn't seen it in forever. And it's really, really bland. The shots are all dull and lifeless, Arnold is awful. I don't blame him though. Cameron knew how to make Arnie feel, and act like a machine. He really WAS a machine. Here...he just kinda acts like one. It's really bad. He's also so ____ing unlikable and such a ____, it's impossible to root for him.

But. There are a few glimmers of gold here. I really like Nick Stahl as John. He did a decent job. Not great, but the emotion is there.

The fact they used animatronics, and robots rather then a ton of CGI, except at the end there, that was good.

And finally, the best ending in the franchise. That is the only brilliant stroke in the whole movie. You never see it coming. it totally works on an emotional level. It's beautiful.

In fact, if the entire movie was like the last 30 minutes, it would've been alright. But no. We get "TALK TO DA HAND" and gay bars, and all that stupid bull____. Massive tone shift. Whatever. It's better then Salvation.

Salvation is boring crap. It was kinda cool watching for the first time. But when you really look at it, it's got no soul. No life. No nothing. Everyone is an _______, and boring.

And you turned one of the better actors of this generation into a growling idiot. No wonder he flipped out. I'd flip out if I had to work in a movie that soulless and stupid.

The Terminator series has a ton of heart. (I don't mean 3). There's actual, human emotions there. That's what makes those two films.

ZaCHw117
03-14-2012, 06:33 PM
I don't know, I thought Salvation's tone was pretty cool. And liked the Marcus Storyline. But you are right about the blandness of it. It's still a bit more exciting then T3 though IMO. Most of that is due to me not being able to take Arnie serious as an actor in anything after 1999. :lol

CelticPredator
03-14-2012, 06:40 PM
Eh. I dunno. T3 does have a smidge of heart to it. And that ending is really, really, really brilliant.

TS has a cool look to it. No doubt. Problem is though, McG doesn't have a style, or puts any of himself in the film. I love directors who put a visual stamp on their films. You know they made it. You know they care about it.

People like McG and Brett Ratner don't seem to care. They can film something that looks good, but you'd never know they made it.

I thin the problem with this one is it ended up being more of a Marcus story than anything else.

We waited forever for a John Connor story and now, we are still waiting.

Dawn of the Dead. 5/10. Should've been called "Mall of the Dead" ... the whole freaking thing was in a shopping mall. The baby thing was stupid. Bleh. After two seasons of The Walking Dead, Shaun of the Dead, and Zombieland ... just disappointing.

As for T3 ... I thought it was fair. Watchable, but definitely the worst of the franchise. Rehash of T2, with a tired Schwarzennegger, a worse villain, and I didn't like the casting of John Connor at all. That whiny, scrawny little dude was lousy. He should've been in his 20s by that time, and had some training time with good 'ol mom ... and Claire Daines had bigger stones than he did.

The action was worthwhile, and the ending was good, though.

You should try the original Dawn where the mall was used as a point of satire, you might get more out of that one.

Great picks , all brilliant movies. I'd personally recommend also picking up Mother , The Chaser and The Election series just to name a few. One I watched last night was quite good also , called " Bedeviled ".
If you're into Horror then there's a list of Asian movies I'd suggest watching. :lol

Anybody here seen " ColdFish " ?. A japanese movie , another strange one about a guy who runs an aquarium with his wife and daughter and another aquarium owner gets to know them with his wife but they both turn out to be not what they expected. :lol

Most Asian movies tend to go off in another direction and not follow the cliche path most do , that's usually why I enjoy them so much.

I watched this Banksy vs Robbo doc on YouTube today. This is worth watching too. I never knew about the feud these two had going on.

I saw the 21 Jump Street remake on Saturday. It wasn't super awesome, but it was like a copy and paste from a lot of the "Superbad" movies.

The plot was pretty retarded and didn't make any sense to me at all, but I didn't really want to see it for a Departed experience.

Johnny Depp does indeed have a cameo at the end of the movie, and it was pretty funny when you recognize him because he's undercover.

I read The Iceman on a plane to Amercia actually a few years back and loved it! I don't think there is anybody better to portray Richard Kuklinski. I think that film is going to be absolutely stunning!

How about that ending eh? The suspense at the end when he was in the shelter was just incredible! I knew exactly what was coming when he sat down with the psychiatrist and planned the family vacation. However that did not make it any less powerful! Just special film making!!!

Hugo: 7/10

I liked it. Although I LOVED the second half much much more than the first, when it essentially becomes the history of film and Melies. I loved how they recreated the filming of the Melies movies and I had such a grin on my face watching those scenes. I did question whether that much attention would be given to Melies and early films in the 1930s, when movies were only around for 30 or so years. I figured they just took some artistic license with that, and a chance for Scorsese to get his film preservation message across. And I didn't see it in 3D, but I can tell that it would have been a great experience, probably better than Avatar, judging by how the camera moved and how the shots were composed. The 3D seemed to make sense and be purposeful.

I must also comment on what an achievement I think it is for Scorsese in particular. To go from the kinds of movies he normally does to a children's movie with such intelligence and insight is very impressive. I have to commend him for also not pandering and completely dumbing down the story and characters, which I see happen too many times in movies aimed at a younger audience (like our idiot George Lucas did).

Puss In Boots: Graded with the children's movie curve: 7.5 / 10.

Last night I watch two movies that featured females as one of the two leads. One female character was a strong female character, one wasn't...

Game Change: 8 / 10. If even a quarter of the film is true...wow.

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2011 American Version): 9.5 / 10. Awesome. Fincher did the book justice, hope he finishes the trilogy. And it's no wonder why Rooney Mara got the role of Lisbeth Salander over other more well-known and established actors. Mara is Salander.

Puss in Boots 7/10

Much better than I expected and the animation/fight scenes were top notch.

Young Adult 6.5/10

This one really depends on the type of films you're into. It's an OK indie flick. The subject matter itself while entertaining is also a bit cringeworthy but that was the point and I see no reason to ever watch again.

War Horse 8/10

Really good Spielberg film. And rarely do you get to see a WWI film these days. I liked how the story revolved around the people the horse met, much like how the play was. A feel good war movie almost if that's possible.

Emerald Knights 7.5/10

Loved the animation, some pretty good stories although I wish they could have had some more interesting ones. Overall a stronger outing than Gotham Knights.

The Wild Hunt 7/10

Interesting Canadian film about LARPers and one such big event that goes bad.

UHF 7/10

I got to meet and take some pictures of Weird Al at a gallery opening in his honor a few weeks back and decided to rewatch this. I just think it's hilarious and wish he made more movies back then.

Brazil- 0/10 I ____ing hated this movie. The story, the design, the acting all sucked.

I'm quoting an old post, but I just had to comment on this given that Brazil is one of my favorite movies of all time.

I loved the story, the design, the acting, the editing, the themes, the music, the sheer detail in every set... I loved that it was dripping with satire. Gilliam's thoughts on corporations, the red tape that slows us down, our need to look perfect even if it compromises our integrity, and I absolutely loved how it ended. In my mind I thought it was a happy ending, but maybe I'm twisted. (I've never seen the "love conquers all" version, and never will)
Oh, and DeNiro was awesome. Definitely not nostalgia for me. I just saw it again recently and loved it as much.

Criterion, where is my blu-ray!!

To each his own though! I've heard from people that they thought it was too long, and that it felt all over the place in terms of editing.

I can understand how someone would love this film, that's probably why my film professor had us watch it. Don't get me wrong the design just wasn't my cup of tea, same with the actors and story. (though DeNiro was the best part).

I watched the Director's cut Where he thinks he get's saved at the end, but ends up just being apart of his luny mind.

Yes, that was the director's cut. I just love that he does indeed get saved, but the only way he is able to get "saved" from the miserable world is by going catatonic. I believe the love conquers all version cuts almost an hour of the film.

I watched a movie called Lake Mungo, about a girl who drowns and then a series of strange events happens to her family after her death. It's a documentary style film with interviews and footage of the actual people involved. It was alright, watchable at best, but sitting around bored the next night I started dwelling on it a bit and it kinda creeped.

I give it a 6.5/10- A one time watcher with zero reason to ever view again.

Seriously. It's like the anti-ADD movie. The polar opposite of Transformers Revenge of the Fallen. After a 2 hour build up of going down the river to hell, in the final act Kurtz reads poetry to Willard. No explosions, no crazy gunfight... but poetry.

I don't think I would rate it any higher regardless. The shakey cam wasn't worthy of me docking the score if I am honest. I didn't find it anywhere near as bad as say Public Enemies.

This was always going to be marketed for the Twilight generation so I expecting the brutality to be minimal. I was intrigued to see how they would pull off such a disturbing story in a Disney like fashion. I think they did it pretty well actually and so my score is just about as high as it could go for this.

You ever see one of those VHS/DVD sets where a music artist tries to connect a bunch of their music videos with some lame ass story tacked on that has zero plot and bad acting?

That's pretty much with Sucker Punch is: 4 cool looking music videos with some lame ass story tacked on that has zero plot and bad acting.

You know a movie sucks when you walk away for like 10-15 minutes to do something and when you come back you haven't missed a single plot point or anything important. :lol

I guess. I didn't have a problem with it. Still don't. It's not a good movie by any means. But I like a few of the fight scenes. I have no idea what the ____ it's about, and why Snyder did what he did. He should've just made it stupid fun. Instead of just stupid.
