We have a recent movie you seen thread but there's still quite a few movies from this past decade that can't really be considered new. So I figured now would be a goor time to start a which movie from the 00's did you just see thread.

I'll start

Hotel Rwanda(2004) 8.5/10

A very powerful and emotional movie. Definitely rivals Schindler's List. Don Cheadle as always was great.

{edit: sorry, Sam, but the grammatical error in the thread title finally got to me!}

Ocean's Thirteen. Pretty good, can't touch the first one.

Tooth and Nail (2006?)...it's one of those 8 Films to Die For.

Reign Of Fire (2001) - 8/10. Very different to what I was expecting, and all the better for it.

The Lion The Witch And The Wardrobe (2006) - 7.5/10. Might have been higher, had I not had to fast-forward through the battle scene cos my kids didn't want to watch that bit.... [Frown] [Mad]
 
Posted by pettyfan (Member # 2260) on :
 
Today I watched Reign Over Me (2007). It was good, kinda different from most Adam Sandler movies cause he was so serious. It was kinda sad, I thought.
 
Posted by TKO (Member # 1471) on :
 
I watched Shutter (2008) last night. Yet another remake of a Japanese horror movie. It wasn't bad, but I expected it to be scarier judging by the cover. I'll give it a 7/10.

We started to watch Vantage Point last night...we bought it on DVD...I didn't mind it in the movie theater....The movie starts at 12:00pm...and they show each person involved in the movie...from each of their view points...and they rewind it to 12:00pm ...over and over...to show the next person and what they were doing at that time, then it all leads up to the main thing that happens...

after starting to watch it again...and they kept repeating it over and over...I couldn't take it anymore...it got really boring.

I watched "Almost Famous (2000)" last night. It was very good!

I also love Groundhog Day... [Smile]

I've never heard anyone say a bad thing about Groundhog day...and for good reason. What a movie.

I have not seen "Vantage Point", but I actually LIKE the concept that you just mentioned: seeing the same scenes over and over again, but with different points of view.

This technique has been used every once in a while in movies and TV: Oliver Stone's movie "JFK", the underrated and short-lived TV show "Boomtown", the current TV show "Medium", and the Japanese samurai classic "Rashomon".
 
Posted by ISIS (Member # 1780) on :
 
I did like Groundhog Day...but towards the end of Ground Hog Day...it got boring too...I lived Groundhog Day so of course it has special meaning to me.

I like the concept too of Vantage Point...and I liked it at the movies....but watching it on DVD...I couldn't get in to watching it again.

I do recommend watching it once though.

It's been a while, but the last '00 movie I saw that left any impression to me was the Tarantino movie "Death Proof" - absolutely loved it and the end made me want to jump up and cheer!

Nancy Drew ('07)--cute movie, good for the whole family

Superbad ('07)--I was disappointed. I thought it'd be better.

Witless Protection ('08)--I love Larry the Cable Guy, and I laughed my azz off! Definitely one I'll be buying.

I watched this truly horrible movie called Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon. The previews looked good, and y'all know I love a good horror movie! But this sure was a letdown.

I watched Superbad on the Muffyless Starz network last weekend and while the humor was crude at times, I rather enjoyed it. I like how Evan & Seth wrote it based on their own experiences...ha. It kind of reminded of Harold and Kumar.

Little late in catching up on some more recent movies, but I can see that I haven't missed much!


NACHO LIBRE.... one of the worst comedies I've ever seen, and I like Jack Black!

TRANSFORMERS... hated it, Michael Bay is an awful, awful, awful director.... thanks for *******izing my childhood memories Mike!

BOURNE ULTIMATUM... best movie I've seen this year, Bourne trilogy is damn near perfect!

SUPERBAD... it was what the title suggests.... laughed maybe twice!

INTO THE BLUE... Alba is HOOOOTTTT!!! the rest of the movie sucked!

DEPARTED... eeeh, yeah... I watched this movie six years ago, it was called INFERNAL AFFAIRS, and it was ten times better

Superbad must be an aquired taste. I liked it very much. I always got a kick out of those "raunchy" comedies, i.e. American Pie, Road Trip, etc.

As far as the Bourne series - absolutley awesome. I also agree with The Departed. OK movie, nothing to write home about.
 
Posted by jdocster04 (Member # 5752) on :
 
I like The Departed. In a sick twisted kind of way... [Wink]

So, I saw The Heartbreak Kid on HBO the other night. It was pretty funny...

Glad to know that I'm the only one who thought Superbad was really, really superbad!! I usually like the raunchy comedies, but this one didn't do it for me. I, too, watched the Heartbreak Kid this weekend...I know it didn't do well at the box office but I liked it.

Last night I watched 3:10 to Yuma. Really good movie, better than what I expected.

30 Days of Night (great!)

Devolution here,

30 Days of night is awesome,

Untraceable was more than good, but no Silence of the lambs.

Superbad is a masterpiece, I guess you have to like that kind of movie but I thought it was amazing.

Posted by JAYLEE (Member # 6345) on :
 
In regard to SUPERBAD: What's raunchy about it?? or more importantly, what's funny about it?? because they swear between each sentence?? Talk about sex?? I am sorry, but from a European point of view, that just aint gonna cut it! I don't mind swearing, I swear like a mad man myself, but swearing is not funny in and of itself! it's in the delivery, and these guys didn't deliver! They talk about sex with a explicit vocabulary.... big deal, so do me and my friends! Dirty doesn't equal funny! it actually has to be funny! I didn't think American Pie was funny ten years ago, and I don't think this movie is funny now!
 
Posted by NowhereGirl (Member # 465) on :
 
to me it was overkill.. the boy yelling, rambling and babbling about wanting to get laid, it just went on and on and got on my nerves. he wouldn't shut up.
as for american pie, i thought it was ok, but not a super funny movie.
i don't mind movies with loads of cursing and dirty talk at all, just superbad hardly made me laugh.

I watched Things We Lost in the Fire . Nothing spectacular, but charming...
Also good acting performances by both Benicio Del Toro and Hale Berry.
Duchovny was a bit disappointing. It’s like watching Fox Mulder over and over again, no matter what movie he’s in.
On the other hand, Benicio Del Toro has to be one of my favorite actors these days. He sort of reminds me of Brad Pitt, but with actual acting skills.

I watched Wonderland (2003) again last night. Have any of ya'll seen it? Val Kilmer stars as John Holmes, and it's about the Wonderland murders from the early 80s and the role that Holmes allegedly (I think he's guilty, but that's my opinion) had in it. It was a really good movie, pretty gritty, though.
 
Posted by MotleyRulz (Member # 3598) on :
 
Yeah I thought Wonderland was well done. Kilmer played a coked out porn star to a tee. I also think Holmes was guilty..............

I think that Halle Berry can act...but that she picks awful choices in movies to be in. I do like her in the Xmen movies though...

The Xmen movies are kind of current movies. I loved the 1st one....I hated the 2nd one-I walked out of the movies on it...and part 3-was just totally off the wall with the story line.

But, in every one of them, I did like the characters....I just hated the story lines in 2 out of 3 of them.

A young couple are awoken in the middle of the night and terrorized by hooded intruders. Grade: A-

Frontier(s) (2007)
Four Parisians fresh from a robbery during widespread city riots, hideout in the country at an out of the way hostel only to find themselves at the mercy of a demented neo-nazi family. Grade: B+

Journey, is Frontiers subtitled or dubbed? It's the only one of the 8 Films to Die For from last year that I didn't see.
 
Posted by journey (Member # 7316) on :
 
It's in French with optional English subtitles. There's no English language track on the DVD. The movie's basically a Texas Chainsaw Massacre ripoff, but competently done, and with some stringent anti-right wing political subtext.

Tonight I watched We Own The Night, 2007. Duvall, Wahlberg, Phoenix, Mendes.

For a change, this was actually better than expected. Good flick.

Righteous Kill. Movie could have been better (why do rap stars tend to ruin a good movie) but Pacino's and DeNiro's performances were perfect. Next we are gonna catch the new Coen Brothers/ George Clooney flick Burn After Reading......

YES! Me too. That ending was a bit of a let-down. The rest of the movie made up for it though.

ISIS, yes it was pretty violent. Some movies have to be to express the feel of the story. I thought this was very well written and directed. Also had superb acting. It was also cool how it was set in 1988 Manhatten. I liked it alot.

Really? I liked it. It was full of action all of the way through... Lots a of violence, some shocking, men, woman, children, pregnant woman. A bit much at times but, a lot of good alien vs predator action. [Cool]
 
Posted by TKO (Member # 1471) on :
 
@ jdocster

Ya, I didn't think it was good.
There was indeed lots of violence and action going. So far, so good. But most of it was filmed in the dark (how clever to vandalise the power plant first ;-) Because of that it was very hard to figure out who was beating who during the action scenes. It also seemed as if this predator was deaf and blind. He only noticed a threat when it almost bit him in the face.
And what about those last lines: - "The world isn't ready for this technology." - "But this isn't for our world, is it?" Did that make any sense to you?

Are they gonna fight the predators on their own planet now?
I liked the first Alien vs Predator better.

Great movie 80'sRocked.One of the best this year imo.

I just looked at"Taken" at a friends place tonight.Really a Steven seagal movie in spirit,but with a serious topic (Trafficking) made believable.written by Luc Besson &Robert Mark Kame.Liam Neeson does some very nice acting in this one.I`m not a very violent guy.And it`s Rated PG-13,however i could tolerate even a bit more violence just this one time [Karate Kid] A few pointers in the story maybe,but good enough to get in my collection A.S.A.P Worth looking into guys.

I watched "The Brave One" last night. It actually wasn't that bad of a movie. But it is exactly like how all new movies are to me...I( can never connect to any of the characters in them. Most of the people in newer movies hardly have any screen time. Mary Steenburgen was in this movie, and it was nice to see her again in something...but you barely see her. Also, Jane Adams was in it...she's been in a billion movies...but she had all of 30 seconds in the movie.

The violence was bad...but it wasn't as horrible as I thought it would be...even though I did cover my head and didn't watch much of it.

They moved the movie along really fast...and that's another thing about movies that are new...that bothers me...

They always leave alot of unanswered questions.

I am glad they didn't leave what happened to her dog... a mystery.

The thing I didn't like about the movie...is how real it is...because crime is becoming so out of control...and when she starts killing people, I felt like everyone else did...they deserved it, and I thought I hope she kills all of those men who killed her fiance.

They really made New York City look like the craziest place on Earth. If crime is happening all the time like that, I never understand why people stay living there.

The fact that those creeps video taped what they did...that was creepy ...but I can see that happening today, and it is scary.

I tried watching Michael Clayton tonight...I saw the beginning, then I got a phone call, and missed some in the middle...my mom kept watching it, she said none of it made any sense and she couldn't even begin to fill me in on what I missed, and she'd have to watch it over to try figuring it out...so I kept watching it from when I came back in, and I saw it up to the end...it was totally boring. It didn't matter if I missed the middle, because it was stupid.
 
Posted by MotleyRulz (Member # 3598) on :
 
It wasn't boring or hard to follow you just have to watch it closely. It would be hard to follow a South Park episode if you watch the beginning and miss the middle and catch the end let alone a good movie like Michael Clayton. What was stupid about it and how do you know if it was stupid if you missed alot of it?
 
Posted by 80'sRocked (Member # 6979) on :
 
I could see Michael Clayton being a bit tough to follow at first, but as you keep watching it, it all starts to make sense. You really need to see the whole movie to fully understand and appreciate it. I thought it was a pretty good flick.

Well...just like the movie- you missed the middle part of my post...where I did say that my mom continued to watch it...while I was on the phone...and she said it didn't matter that I missed the middle, because she couldn't follow it at all, and she said it was stupid.

I never understood the Matrix...I remember I tried to watch it...and I hated it...and I wouldn't even be able to begin to try and comment about anything that was in it, because I couldn't understand 1 thing about it.

I missed about 1/2 an hour of Michael Clayton...

I thought after watching the beginning...when they show his car exploding...and then they go back 4 days prior to show what led up to the car exploding...well those 4 days are the parts I missed...which once you know the end and what happens...it still never answered anything...like I wanted to know...why all of a sudden would he just happen to decide right then and there to get out of the car, and walk up on a hill...to 3 horses that are standing there in the middle of nowhere...and he just stands there staring at the horses...then his car blows up.

They never even tell you who's horses they were, and why he got out of his car....it was just too weird.

Did they ever say in the movie if the man that hit the guy with his car...if the guy lived or died?

What happened with that? I forgot to even ask my mom about it, because I actually didn't even care.

This movie is quite complicated and you have to pay attention to every detail or you can get lost quite easily. There were times when I was a bit lost(especially around the first half hour or so), but as you keep watching, it starts to make more sense. It probably will make more sense if you watch it again in it's entirety.

**************SPOILER******************

As far as the horses go....this part is kind of left open to interperetation and is a hot topic in many messageboards. Why did he get out of the car to look at the horses? For one, you must have missed the part where Clayton is in Arthur's apartment after he died and he was looking through a book. In that book, there was a picture of a hillside similar to the one the horses were on. There was also a picture of a horse in that book. The reason the car blew up is because the people who were trying to kill him, wired a bomb into his GPS. I'm guessing that you must have missed that part too. Seeing that you say you hated the movie, you probably won't watch it again. If you do though, it will probably be more enjoyable and make more sense. Hope this helps.

The scene with the horses makes sense but you really have to pay attention to get it. It is explained in the movie. I thought it was a good flick. I had to explain it to my mom because she really didn't get it either. [Smile]

I just watched Nights in Rodanthe...it just came to my movie theater...so I went with my husband and my friend and her husband. It was only 1 hour 37 minutes long. They played commercials for 20 minutes before the movie- and showed one previews- and it was for James Bond.

The movie was pretty boring...I kept waiting for something really amazing to happen...but it was pretty bland. My friend told me her daughter just saw it and she bawled the whole way through it...I didn't. I didn't expect the end. I never read the book-it probably was better than the movie. I did like seeing Diane Lane working in a B & B, and I have been to the Outerbanks, NC- and have driven past some of the places that they showed in the movie..so that was cool.

I thought they made it be way too big of a deal over nothing. I didn't connect with any of the people in the movie- to actually feel anything one way or another about it.

Has anyone else seen it yet?

- National Treasure 2 6/10 - About the same as the first one. Maybe not quite as good

- The Happening 7/10 - I liked it. It wasn't great but it wasn't bad. The plot was kind of a novell idea.

- Iron Man 7/10 - It had some really cool scenes. Not as good as all of the hype but I liked it. Downey was very good.

- Bucket List 6/10 - I was a little disappointed with this one. I really thought it would be a lot funnier. It was a good story though.

Posted by Toxic Sammy Hain (Member # 3150) on :
 
The scenes themselves aren't horrible but seeing the dogs afterwards is definitely uncomfortable and gruesome. They astually put the disclaimer about no animals being harmed before the movie instead of burying it in the end credits; of course it's in spanish but they're there.

I'm with ya Motley. It did leave you wanting. It was a good flick but the action scenes were filmed way to "close-up" and you couldn't see all of the action that clearly. Also, they used the "hand-cam" type of filming with some of the scenes being unwatchable. That can be annoying. Overall though I really liked it. I'm a sucker for James Bond movies... [Smile]

i saw twilight as well.

besides the crew i was with there were only 3 other people in the auditorium, which was excellent. i loved the movie. it definitely followed the book very well. i always found the dialog in the book to be a bit corny (in a good way), so it made us laugh out loud a lot to hear the cheesiness on screen.

THE LOVE GURU. I have always loved Mike Myers since his SNL days and even though I had heard this movie was terrible I gave him the benefit of the doubt (I also remembered hearing NORBIT with Eddie Murphy was terrible and I laughed A LOT during that movie. Sometimes you just have to follow your gut when it comes to renting movies and ignore the reviews)Well the movie ended up being hugely disappointing BUT there were a FEW laughs in it. The biggest shame of all was Justin timberlake was in it and I like him and know he CAN be funny but he wasn't funny here. It was a total waste of his time being in this movie. Any laughs to be found (and there werent MANY) were Mike Myers.

But everyones allowed a slip....and I am sure I will be rening Mike's NEXT movie too.

I'll tell you what, I have liked every one of these movies. Each one is well thought out, suspenseful and, really fun to watch. I think they should make 5 of them! [Big Grin]

Hey wait, there are 7 of them...

The Bourne Identity (1980)
The Bourne Supremacy (1986)
The Bourne Ultimatum (1990)

Sequels to Ludlum Books
The Bourne Legacy - Eric Van Lustbader (2004)
The Bourne Betrayal - Eric Van Lustbader) (2007)

Syriana. Excellent performance by George Clooney and the cast as a whole. I actually saw George in a local eatery back when they were filming Leatherheads here in North Carolina. We finished eating and walked past him as they (I'm assuming it was members of the crew) were done eating. He nodded as we walked by so I assumed he wouldn't mind someone speaking to him lol. I struck up a conversation with him about the state and we talked a bit about South Park and he talked about doing the voice of Sparky the Dog. I had heard he was a huge fan of the show and he admitted it. I also asked him about Return to Horror High which got a big laugh outta him. He was a really nice guy but dang he's short or maybe it was where I'm tall. Got his autograph and one of the waitress I know there said a few days later he left another waitress a $1,000 tip...........

Watched ELF last night - thought it was better than I expected, seeing as I'm not a big Will Ferrell fan.

I didn't know that Zooey Deschanel was in it - the only thing I know her from is the Hitchhilerg Guide To The Galaxy movie. So that made two things. Then I switched over to the Sci-Fi Channel, and lo and behold, there she was again! They were showing an episode of Tin Man, and she was on screen.... spooky!

Must remember to add her to the Hot Women thread later.....

I saw her locking them up ..in the movie...which I had never seen before, then this Sunday I went to this high end grocery store that sells alot of gourmet stuff, and they had little truffles locked in a plastic case...they were $699.99 a lb.-I think that was a bargain compared to what she was getting them for.

I can not imagine anything tasting so great that you would pay that kind of money for any of it.

I had a peach smoothie the other night, it was really good...but to pay crazy amounts of money for a mushroom...I can't grasp it.

I just watched "Rendition". It was totally boring..I kept thinking that there could have been a good storyline buried in it somewhere, but it never came out anywhere. Reese Witherspoon's character was barely in the movie. Meryl Streep barely did anything. None of it made any sense. I don't recommend wasting any time on it.

The Mist (2007)

- First of all, this is a very good movie.
The ending?
Well, I heard that it´s depressing but..
THAT depressing, WOW!
I love that screenwriters have the guts to write unhappy endings once in a while
but this was just out of this world.
But all in all, this movie makes you think. Highly recommended.

The Mist was a good movie, but I did hate the ending.

Watched Delta Farce this afternoon. It was very funny! I love Larry the Cable Guy...

I also watched 1408. It was a good movie, spooky in parts. The ending was, well, typical Stephen King, I guess you could say. I'm usually not a fan of John Cusack but I think he did a good job in this one.

A REALLY good movie that just came out yesterday, Righteous Kill. I saw it in the theatre it's opening week and didn't even know what it was about. My friend just told me that the previews looked good and I went with it.

I pre-ordered it at work so I had it (legally) on sunday! and Pineapple Express, but I'm waiting until my boyfriend comes up here to watch it with him.

(Leatherheads...I've seen it once. That's good enough for moi.)

A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, an indie drama starring Robert Downey Jr. and unfortunately, Shia Lebouf. And he IS so Shia Lebouf! Not a good actor, and even tougher to look at him. But all of the other characters made up for him.

THE MIST made me cry! And my husband - who usually teases me when I cry - was funlly supportive! I think it was the first time I've cryed during a movie where he absolutely agreed the crying was justified! It was hard going to sleep after I watched it!

MR WOODC0CK. I usually rent horror movies and my husband ISNT that big a horror movie fan so every once and awhile I throw something different in the mix. We had seen BAD SANTA and SCHOOL FOUR SCOUNDRELS last month and enjoyed both so i decided to give this Billy Bob Thornton movie a shot.

It was okay and thats about it. Not great, not terrible. We laughed a few times (and one scene had me laughing my *** off) but all-in-all a pretty forgetable flick. Not bad a for a rainy day though.

Enjoyable movie that pays homage to films like Mad Max, Aliens, Platoon, The Warriors etc. I love British movies and this one, whilst not as good as Dog Soldiers is equally as good as the Descent.

I watched Midnight Movie, which was the 2008 feature film winner of the Chicago Horror Film Festival. It was a very good movie (very gory also) but the ending sucked, IMO. I'd actually like to see a sequel made.

I'm almost ashamed to say this, but last night we watched "Meet the Spartans". And I thought it had some funny moments.

Please don't hold it against me.

I HATED Cloverfield, I saw it at the movie theatre, and we all got sick. I was sick for hours after it. I actually had to cover my head in places, because it was making me so dizzy.

I thought it was a horrible movie to make after everything New York has been through with 9-11....having the head of the Statue of Liberty coming rolling down the street- was not cool.

Cloverfield wasn't that good. The handheld camera work could give you motion sickness... [Cool]

I loved Cloverfield, it was so exciting and exhilarating.

Just tonight we watched Ella Enchanted. It was so much fun, much more than I expected it to be. I didn't recognise Vivica Fox tho as the fairy godmother, or Heidi Klum as Brunhilda.

It had a lot of cool actors - Cary Elwes, Parminder Nagra, Joanna Lumley, Patrick Bergin, Steve Coogan....

And the music was terrific, with some fun versions of "Walking on sunshine", "Somebody to love" and "Don't go breaking my heart"

Dark Knight i keep watching this film the acting is good,the action great and Heath Ledger steals the show.
The only thing that cheesed me off a bit with this film was how Christian Bales voice gets gruffer and gruffer as the fim goes on.

Lords of Dogtown (2005)

Lords of Dogtown is such a great movie! I initially watched it because of Johnny Knoxville's small role. I even bought the soundtrack.

'The Host' is an entertaining, South Korean monster movie; the creature is a bit like that Rancor pit monster in 'Return Of The Jedi'. Better than 'Cloverfield', 'The Host' also employs satire to criticise U.S. foreign policy; particularly how South Korea is used against North Korea. Modern take on monster movies like Toho's 'Godzilla' or 'Q: The Winged Serpent'. Worth seeing.

congratz to mickey rourke (sp).. he did a great acting job. i know he won the golden globe for best actor, and is up for the oscar as well... if he wins, it will be well deserved.

Saw Boogeyman 3. It was actually pretty good. I think the Boogeyman series is one of the few where both sequels were better than the original.

I watched Sex Drive last night. It is along the lines of Super Bad and American Pie. I laughed a lot. I think stupid humor like that is the best. Seeing James Marsden playing something so comical was great. This movie is not for everyone. If you enjoy pointless humor and a lot of nakedness the unrated version is pretty priceless.

I laughed so hard at this part....I almost choked on my popcorn!

I think it was rated R but could easily have been NC17.

Body of Lies with DiCaprio and Crowe. I actually thought it was pretty good with lots of action and intensity. I'd say 7/10........

i saw THE READER with kate winslet and her oscar winning performance. interesting film..

she does do a good job though. she's naked throughout a good portion of the movie haha.

it's not action packed, just a drama, but a good one.

7/10
 
Posted by Pittsburghgirl (Member # 7514) on :
 
I watched Body of Lies also. It was just okay IMHO.
Possible Spoiler:
I thought the storyline about DiCaprio's character risking his life and going back to Jordan just for a girl was unrealistic. Just my opinion, but I know of no man who would do that. I just didn't buy it. He barely even knew her.

I watched The Midnight Meat Train, which may be the most gory movie I've ever seen in my life, and I've seen a bunch. It was just okay...I expected more, to be honest.

I watched Choke last night starring Sam Rockwell. It was pretty good, but it may not be for everyone. It's about a sex addict who works at Colonial Williamsburg, and who supplements his income to pay for his mother's nursing home costs by "choking" on his food in restaurants and choosing a rich customer to save him. They in turn send him money since they feel sorry for him. It is kind of a crazy-azz movie!

Yeah, his character was an a- hole. But I think most government handlers, like FBI or CIA, are a-holes. It's just their nature- they don't get the job by being a nice guy, ha,ha.

The Haunting of Molly Hartley...I was expecting this really scary movie (based on previews I'd seen) and what I got was a pretty boring movie. It had a couple good moments (the ending sucked though IMO) but it was NOT what I'd expected. I think I'll be selling it back...

Death Sentence, 2007 starring Kevin Bacon and Kelly Preston.

I saw this movie. It's not bad. Very violent like you said 80'sRocked...

Rachel Getting Married- don't waste your time peeps. I like independent movies, but this one stunk. And that "world" music, or whatever they call it, drove me nuts playing throughout the entire movie. Please, someone give Anne Hathaway a sandwich too- she looks emaciated. The only good point was seeing Debra Winger again- I wish she would get to do some more starring roles.

I watched IP Man...

It's the story of Yip Man when he was younger before he moved from Foshan to Hong Kong. It takes place during the Japanese invasion (1937). Anyway, Yip Man was a renown Wing Chun master (3rd gen) who eventually taught Bruce Lee. It's a good movie for non martial artists, and, a great movie for martial artists, in particular Wing Chun/JKD practitioners.

This movie is "not" available in English. You have to read the subtitles. Normally, I hate this, but, it didn't bother me one bit during this compelling movie.

9/10 - I highly recommend this movie... [Smile]

I just saw a special screening of 'Star Trek'. I would recommend it to everyone I know. It's pace, story, and execution was nicely done.

There are minor tidbits from the original tv show. I'm sure die hard Trekkie's would have a great laugh about it.

It's a good movie for non martial artists, and, a great movie for martial artists, in particular Wing Chun/JKD practitioners.

This movie is "not" available in English. You have to read the subtitles. Normally, I hate this, but, it didn't bother me one bit during this compelling movie.

9/10 - I highly recommend this movie... [Smile]

Jay Lee,

I'll put them on the list! Donnie Yen is simply awesome to watch in most anything.

What I love about this movie is that it's true to "traditional" Wing Chun (Ving Tsun) style, and, it's show in it's most brutally effective form. You don't see much of the "Hong Kong", jumping around, movie theatrics during the Wing Chun scenes. It's all real.

Anyone who likes kung fu movies, or, martial arts movies would like this movie.

I watched Sam's Lake, which I thought was just gonna be an okay mystery-suspense type movie. However, exactly 54 minutes into the movie it got good. Pretty darn good. It's not the best movie I've ever seen, but if you're bored it's good for a watch.

Zack and Miri Make a Porno. The first half I thought was really funny. The second half, meh. I recognized a few things in the movie- Ralph's Army Surplus, where they pull over in the car. That place has been there forever. And of course, Monroeville Mall, where I worked a few years back. They made it look much better than it is- it's actually kinda run down. But since they filmed close to Christmas, you could see the extremely cheap and cheesy decorations that the Mall puts up every year. Even in my hometown where there isn't a whole lot of money, the decorations in the mall and the town are a lot better than an old mall here in Pittsburgh.
Anyhoo, I did like Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks together- at first I thought they wouldn't mesh. Wow, she is beautiful. Wish I looked like her. I'd give the movie a 2 1/2 out of 5 stars. Oh, loved the Tracy Lords scene where you find out why her name is "Bubbles"!

Over the weekend i watched The Condemned with former wrestler Steve Austin and Vinnie Jones,have to admit was alot better than i thought it would be just good old fashioned action and violence.
 
Posted by Pittsburghgirl (Member # 7514) on :
 
I watched The Wrestler yesterday. So sad. I don't want to give anything away, but I did not walk away with a good feeling afterward. You guys who saw it before me were right- it was depressing in parts.
I also watched a cheesy Lifetime movie on Ondemand, (free movies on our digital cable) called Tribute, a Nora Roberts movie. I only wanted to see it cuz Jason Lewis was init [Smile] . Unfortunately Brittany Murphy was the star. Not only is she ugly, but she seemed to have had some sort of botox or something, plut she had her lips done with perhaps collagen or whatever it is these days that they inject into their bodies.
Can I ask anyone who watches these Lifetime movies, especially the Nora Roberts ones- is it a prerequisite to have either plastic surgery or botox plus the phony looking lip injections prior to filming? I remember that movie last year that Heather Locklear was in and her face looked horrible!

I rented two comedies this week.

One was BIG STAN starring Rob Schneider, who most people say they hate but- Lord Help Me- I think he's funny!(He also reminds me of my best friend, so maybe thats the appeal for me). It was actually pretty damn funny!

Then i watcheds the much heralded PAUL BLART MALL COP and...I gotta say, BIG STAN was better!

I wrote a paper once on CIA's involement in the afghan-russian conflict, so the subject is interesting to me. However, I think that Julia Roberts was HORRIBLY miscast, and a real distraction! Felt the same way with Angelina Jolie in The Good Shepherd, strangely enough, another CIA flick.

And I don't even like Tom Hanks (outside of the Burbs) that much. But Philip Seymour Hoffman made this movie! Somehow this movie really did it for me. I would never have seen it, if it hadn't come on TV.

Yeah, I saw it. It starts off really well and seems like it's going to be a great realistic thriller, but then it kind of falls into familiar territory in the last act and settles for formulaic action antics. Not bad, but not great either.

On a side note, Maggie Grace is embarassingly bad as Liam Neeson's daughter, trying way too hard to constantly remind the audience that she's a teenage girl and not the 25-year-old adult she is in real life.

I watched Premonition this weekend. It was so so... 5/10. Too predictable, inconsistencies in the storyline etc... Crappy ending.

Sandra Bullock used to be so promising... [Frown]
 
Posted by Pittsburghgirl (Member # 7514) on :
 
I agree jdoc, I didn't like Premonition either. I had watched it ignoring anything the critics said about it, because I don't always rely on critics. I have seen alot of movies that I really liked that were originally panned by the critics, but this one deserves a 2/10- you were generous!

BODY OF LIES: Decent CIA thriller, but the tacked on romance angle killed the movie for me! It sort of redeemed itself in the end though.

TAKEN: Cool euro action with one bada$$ Liam Neeson! The french are kicking Hollywoods a$$ in the action department, more and more....! watch B:13 or THE NEST or this movie for proof!

IN THE VALLEY OF ELAH: Pretty boring and unoriginal! Didn't like the resolution to the whole "murder mystery". But the little touch with the flag in the end was poignant.

THE WRESTLER: uughh.... Clichéed with stereotypical characters. Of course they exist in real life, and if you do something new with them, that's fine... but they didn't here. I could predict the outcome of EVERY SINGLE SCENE!!!! And I really hate that. Mickey Rourke was good, and the 80's hairmetal soundtrack was cool.

The Card Player - This Argento film is so daft but very entertaining. It's about a maniac kidnapping women and killing them via webcam if the police lose to him at internet poker  - The dead bodies are really yuck. It has a very funny ending.

I thought 30 Days of Night was awesome. I was really not expecting to like it after hearing all the mediocre reviews and for the fact that it stars Josh Hartnett, Hollywood's second most boring star, but it was terrific. I love that they went with hideous beastial vampires and not the Ann Rice-esque gay gothic vampires like every other movie made lately.

I saw The Perfect Getaway the other day. It was pretty bad, but I did dig the almost inappropriate moments of dark humor offered by Timothy Olyphant's character. Somehow that was what worked best. It was kind of like the movie came alive only when it was in self-mockery mode. The rest was mostly a mess: loads of plot holes, obvious twists, dumb dialog that's meant to be serious, non-sensical plot points, etc.

Just watched a mixed bag of movies:

The Uninvited - wasn't expecting much but was generally entertained. I know this is another americanised remake of an asian film but I liked it anyway. 7/10

12 Rounds - WWE films try to remake Die Hard with John Cena. Poor acting, cliched action,a laughable villain and a total ******* FBI agent. Mindless popcorn flick. 4/10

Push - Not quite what I was hoping for based on the trailers. Excellent premise that could have been done better. Obvious set up for a sequel which is unlikely evr to happen. 5/10

It must be me....I can't find one movie these days that even attempts to scare me in the least bit. I would be happy if one made me even jump a little....nothing. The first 20 minutes of this movie was tough enough to watch as it is. Then it finally gets into the "horror" aspect and it was more aggravating than anything. The way the camera was being flung around and the light flickering and such the entire time sure made it difficult to follow at times. And then the non-stop screaming and whimpering of the woman lead character was annoying as hell during the last 20 minutes or so. It had it's decent moments, but not even close to what I was expecting.

I finally watched Gran Torino and Taken. Loved Gran Torino- not your average Clint film though! I may have to go out and buy it. My friend made me wait until I got down to the beach to see her- her father lent both movies to her, and also 3:10 to Yuma, but I already saw that a while ago. Taken- a good action flick. Don't know what all the fuss was about from the critics about how horrible it was supposed to be.

Quarantine didn't do much for me either, but the original Spanish version was much better, I thought. The end sequence was far superior in the original for one.

I watched Paranormal Activity on the flight home the other day. The guy sitting next to me had a cam version he downloaded. Luckily my little angel was fast alseep so I was able to watch it.

I liked it. It was fun to watch. Suspensfull, not gory in any way. It is more hitting on the fear of something you cant see. I enjoy those types of scary movies.

People who are freaked out by ghosts...will be freaked out by this movie, but for those of us who are not, it a fun movie to see. I was not scared, but the dude watching it with me...well on the 12 hour flight I am pretty sure he didnt blink once afterwards...or even turn off his overhead light!

I didnt care for blair witch, but liked the of this movie, and the nice part about it, you completely forget it is scripted, and feel like you are taking a journey with this couple. A few hokey moments, but overall I enjoyed it.

Watched Eagle Eye the other day not a bad film good pace to it and some good action sequences,but the story has been done in one way or another many times before.

Last night Sunshine was on the telly now this is the 3rd time i have seen this film and am still undecided on it.
The effects in it are very good and i like the scenes when they are looking at the sun with the shields down,it just lets the brightness wash over you.But the story just ambles along with no real sort of direction.

Watched NEW MOON with my daughter, her best friend and my husband on my daughter's birthday.
I wasnt a TWILIGHT FAN before and this movie did nothing to convert me. ("Jacob" was okay but, man, I wish "Bella" and "Edward" would take a pill and cheer the **** up!)

Pittsburghgirl,

I enjoyed it. It's not the greatest film of all-time, but it's not as bad as the Terminator purists would have you believe.

You should definitely rent it.

Thanks J2ME.

Last night we watched Star Trek. I really liked it, but I could have done without a little of the CGI. It was cool that they had Leonard Nemoy in it too.
Does anyone know if they are going to continue with a series of Star Trek movies?

Inglourious Basterds (2009)

- What a masterpiece!
Christoph Waltz was phenomenal as Col. Hans Landa
and Brad Pitt, very funny role.
Score was very good as usual, strange to hear Bowie´s Cat People though.
I guess that i´m kind of surprised how good this actually was.
Now give us more magic Mr. Tarantino!

Really not sure, even after watching it, whether I'd recommend it or not. It's one of those I need to watch twice before I can work out if it's any good. Certainly the effects and visuals are impressive. Not so the story or the performances.

I watched W the other night now this wouldn't be my normal choice of film but i stumbled across it and thought why not give it a go.
Have to say Josh Brolin is great as George W Bush as an actor he really has got some good roles in recent years,he has come a long way since Thrashin.His portrayal of the character is spot on and he really does resemble him that you start to forget you are watching an actor,the same can be said for Richard Dreyfuss as **** Chenney.
I was not sure to start if this was just going to be a mickey taking film about George Bush but it didn't get drawn into it,as expected it shows his gaffs but overall a very watchable film.

Hey Noms, I liked Choke too. It was a little bizarre, but I really liked Sam Rockwell and I think it was Kelly McDonald that played the "doctor". I will have to keep an eye out for the book when I'm out shopping at the used book stores.

Rewatched Thunderbirds last night. OK, so it ain't the greatest movie in the world, but it's fun enough. Plus my daughters wanted to watch it once they learned that Vanessa Hudgens played Tintin. Plus it's fun seeing where I work.....

One of the best horror movies I've seen in a long time. Story is kind of a mix between "Halloween" and "Rosemary's Baby." Takes place in the early 80's and really looks like it could be a movie made at that time. Definitely recommend this to people looking for a good scary movie to watch.

Hey Motley, I know you don't like Leno, but when he interviewed Gerard Butler last year, I was lmfao. He is a really funny guy!

I went to see THE WOLFMAN (it was good) and the ad for that Gerard Butler Jen Aniston movie wnet on and I let out an audible moan. is it just me or are her movies TERRIBLE?!
I dont think Ive ever seen him in anything before LAW ABIDING CITIZEN and I hated him in thta, although in all fairness I hated his charactor in general so maybe it wasnt HIM, y'know? I read somewhe3re he's supposed to be some kind of sex symbol and honestly I dont see it at all! (Then again Benicio DelToro is supposed to be one too and I think he's fug!)

thanks for the welcome, glad you liked Amelie. I think a lot of great films get unnoticed by over half the world, seeing as half of the world speak fluent english and dont bother with italian, norweigian, german or french films at all. Let the right one in was well done. The characters had depth and thats one thing i look for in a great movie. I had no idea what it was about when i saw it so i got a little shock really.

I went and saw The Crazies last week. I enjoy scary movies but this one for me felt like it had been done a thousand times before. I did giggle through a lot if the movie. The poor man infront of me was trying to act all tough for his date, but he screamed and jumped at everything. There is a classic scene with a keyhole and jumping induced music. When this guy jumped ten feet, I couldn't help but laugh outloud. To this, half the theater turned to look at me like I was the crazy one!

Me and my wife went to see "She's Out Of My League" last night...expectations were not really high...and...we both really liked it. A bit of an 80's feel to it, with one of the main characters even being in a Hall and Oates cover band....

I rented FANTASTIC MR FOX to watch with my daughter and she ended up doing something with her friend instead so I had a couple of glasses of wine and watched it. I enjoyed it! Truthfully, its more of a grown up movie than a kids movie anyway.

Extract with Jason Batemen, Ben Affleck, Mila Kunis and a host of familiar faces. Funny, on a par with Idiocracy though not as good as Office Space.

Watched 2012 last night,and fairly unimpressed with it.The effects are good but that is about all it has going for it the film is far to long at 2 and a half hours for the script and plot it uses.
Also Danny Glover is terrible as the President in it,now i really like him in his earlier stuff but now days he seems to of developed a style of acting that just involves whispering all the time.
Then we move on to John Cusack now he is without a doubt one of my favorite 80's actors but his style of acting is just so wrong for this sort of film,he just can't do action very well.

The end of the world plot is ok but it has been so many times before and without wanting to spoil this for anyone this film offers nothing new to the genre.

Finally watched the Boondock Saints II. I liked it, my hubby said it was just okay. I laughed my *** of at a lot of the lines in this one!

One thing I did not like was Julie Benz' character- her acting was terrible with a phony Southern accent.

watched rec 2 a spanish horror in the similar style of blair witch - using steady camera. It was entertaining and worth watching if you liked the first one. Much of the same, set in the same building and continues on from the first so you really need to watch the 1st in order to understand properly whats going on otherwise you will be a little confused by it really. IMO its better than the 1st but you know what to expect which is not what you can say about the first one as its a bit of a whurl wind OMG whats happening here sort of film. i didnt find it scary at all as id seen the first one but it has some excellent moments which are nothing short of cinematography genius . . .very clever. 8.5/10

_________X [co-sign]

Quite agree, it was a very good documentary. And, in my opinion, Rodney Bingenheimer himself hasn't received the praise and recognition from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. I think he needs to be inducted because of the big breaks that he's given so many bands from the 70's and 80's.

Rodney deserves to be enshrined!

I watched a movie review show (you know the guys: they replaced Siskel and Ebert) and they both said GROWN UPS was no good. I had already promised my daughters friend Id take them to it so we went and I must say we all -grown ups AND children - enjoyed it imensely! I'll never listen to those reviewer guys again!

The part in the movie (and Im not ruining anything cuz they show it in the commercials) where Kevin James breaks his pool had me laughing so hard I cryed. I cant remember the last time thats happened during a movie!

I happen to be a fan of everyone in the movie, but if your even a fan of one of these guys you should check it out.

I also recently say SHREK 4 (not as good as Parts 1 n 2 but better than part 3) and TOY STORY 3 (not as good as Parts 1 n 2 but still good).

I watched FUNNY PEOPLE last night and found it a chore to sit through (my daughter is saying to me "if you knew an hour in you didnt like it why did you stick it out for two and a half hours???")

It was depressing and even the bits that were supposed to be funny werent in my opinion. I laughed twice at some totally random stuff (I know when someone started talking about how old the HARRY POTTER kids have gotten I laughed because I have a whole schtick about that myself).

Not recommended.

Now granted- its one of those movies where an hour after its done you think "hey, they never explained THIS"....or "why did THAT happen?" ...but while it was ON it was actually entertaining and spooky.

I recommend.

I'd never heard of it but found it on Netflix while browsing horror movies. I added it to my que...it should be coming up soon.

Ronnie, it is better the second time around. I saw it in the movies and then bought it on Blu-ray and watched it again. The first time I kept getting confused with the flashbacks to Michael's mama, which, as we all know, was just Zombie's way to get ol' Sherrie Moon Zombie into his movie. I love Rob Zombie, think he's brilliant, but he really needs to stop casting his wife in EVERYTHING he does. Ranting over now. [Smile]

Great film, it was a good deleted scene but they used the right ending. This scene was too comedic, made it seem more like a buddy movie which it defintely isn't. Denzel Washington is a living legend.

My husband loved THE WRONG GUYS. He said next time we go to that theater (I call it "the cheapie theater' cuz they have a $5 night) I should go see it.

Religulous- 2008

 -

A very funny, yet slightly self indulgent, doc from Bill Maher. What I didn't like was that this film was too much about Bill trying to bait, dispute and reason with these people. When he should have just sat back, played the straight man, and have these people expose themselves.
 
Posted by mamamiasweetpeaches (Member # 1715) on :
 
I liked Religulous (as a Grown Up I find myself questioning my beliefs, where as a child I was sent to Catholic school and church and had no say in the matter, so even though Im pretty much Catholic Im really iffy about it) but I was a little disappointed they didnt discuss even MORE religions. My husband is Hindu and thats a hard religion to wrap my mind around. I would have liked to hear a bit about Buddhism too. Oh well.
 
Posted by JAY LEE (Member # 6345) on :
 
Im agnostic, so this movie should have been right up my alley, but I was also kinda dissapointed! It was an entertaining but superficial doc. Like a prolonged skit from the Daily Show or something.

I've read a lot about Buddhism, and to me, that seems like the most benevolent and easygoing religion. But it's really more like a life philosophy. Unless you're an actual buddhist monk of course. But yeah, would have liked to see some on that, and Hinduism would have been interesting too.

No EAT PRAY LOVE for me either. I dont DO chick flicks. My hubby wanted to watch DEAR JOHN with him and I wouldnt go.

I saw SPLICE. I dont know what to say about this one. It was okay, but anyone expecting CONSTANT gore and attacks should stay far far away. Most of the shocks come at the end.

Oddly enough I think PARENTS would get more out of this than non-parents as some of the problems they have with their 'creation' are not THAT far removed from the problems any parent with a teenage daughter would have!

So while Im glad I watched it I dont think it has a High Re-Watch factor.

This movie was slated by the critics but I don't think it necessarily deserved such bad reviews. Sure, its no Oscar winner but as a bit of sci-fi popcorn trash with a splash of gore it serves its purpose well.

I rented ALONE WITH HER to watch while my husband was on a fishing trip. It was so good I saved it for him to watch the next day. He loved it!

Its about a guy who stalks a woman and plants surveliance equipment all over her apartment (he even goes so far as to have a hidden camera on HIM at all times) so everything we see as viewers is from the persepective of hidden cameras. I was iffy about this gimmick at first but it ended up working out well and gave the film something that set it off from the other "shes gotta stalker" flicks.
Highly recommended.

*And while this technically wasnt a "Horror" movie I found it very creepy,but it was "non-Horror" enough to keep my husband amused.

My thoughts exactly! It was an ok movie but the laughs fell so flat some times........I went with a group to see it and we were all like hmmmmm?

I love Mean Girls!!

Just watched KickAss............it was awesome! It was funny, quirky.....creative....I loved that it didn't rely on tons of big stars....just Nick Cage..........it was awesome....I love being impressed with a new movie.

The Other Guys

Liked it a lot! Quite funny, and it actually had a somewhat interesting plot.

I also saw Due Date earlier today, in the cinema. Loved it. Hilarious movies. Never a dull moment. It was totally worth the money I didn't have to spend on it (got free tickets through my bro). Robert Downey Jr. is great.


Also...as we're back in the '10s now (and actually have been for awhile), shouldn't this section be changed to "'00s and later movies"? I mean, we can't call every movie coming out this century "00s" movies, can we?


EDIT:

Outlander.

Can't believe I had never heard of this before...seems to have been overlooked. Great little sci-fi flick featuring vikings (it's hard to explain). Quite original in that aspect.

Metropolis (2001):

 -

This movie is a visual beauty. Even having seen it a few times before, it still seems to get more beautiful to me with each new viewing. The downside though is that the story is a bit lacking and crude when compared to the original it's based off of. And if you're not an anime or sci-fi fan, then I highly doubt the story will captivate you enough to keep your interest. But if you are a fan of these types of films, then this is a great one to watch late at night by yourself on a good surround sound setup.

AMARANTH^ I just got a copy of TOOTHFAIRY. I think The Rock has this magnetic appeal with Moms: We actually LIKE sitting through his movies. Very smart thinking on the filmmakers parts: lets cast a guy Moms will WANT to look at for an hour and a half in these Family Films! (My husband likes him too: thats just 'gravy')

AVATAR was too damn long. THANK YOU! By the end of the movie I turned on them and wanted to watch them all die! It was right around the time my butt fell asleep from sitting on the couch for so long!
If someone could edit AVATAR down to an hour and 45 minutes Id give it another shot.

I saw the Made For TV movie GREY GARDENS (Drew Barrymore, Jessica Lange) and really ended up enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would be (those two broads can ACT, Boy!) Now Im interested in finding the 70s Documentary its based on.

Oh - and Martin Short, Alan Arkin and Judge Reinhold were in it, which was cool.

Danny Dyer has made three good films. Severance was one of them; there's this one hilarious scene where he asks Laura Harris to check something for him; brilliant comic timing from the both of them.

I think I would enjoy the comics more, the problem I had was with the execution:

**SPOILERS**

The movie is supposed to be a kind of real world 'what if' for superheroes, but as soon as Hit Girl starts leaping around beating up big burly men that idea is thrown out the window. I also disliked the implausibility of the girlfriend character: not only does she want a gay friend, but when she finds out he's not gay she sleeps with him (different in the comic I believe). I also disliked that Hit Girl could fight so many people and walk away with barely a scratch, when her father was killed and Kick *** was pulped several times. It's like the moviemakers were happy to make her character violent, but unwilling to be honest and show the logical extreme of what could happen by having her get her head kicked in.

Beyond that, I found the movie fairly entertaining. Above average. But I find I'm still waiting for someone to make a movie about costumed heroes in the real world that doesn't immediately submarine the premise.

I kinda Hate to admit this, but I very suprisingly kinda enjoyed this movie. It actually made me laugh at a few parts. Though I think the movie gets a bit TOO sappy and mushy by the end..it's still not bad. But, I'm always a little more of a leniant reviewer toward these family/kid movies. Because, let's face it...they're for kids...they're not supposed to make much sense. So, if you're the kinda of cartoon obsessed grown up who's able to watch these kind of movies with that kind of mentallity..then you just might enjoy this. It's just...a.....cute movie..hehe. And I thought Dwayne Johnson did a pretty decent job in it.

I give a Big/Little Kid rating of 6/10

You need to be fully alert and have the remote ready for a brief pause around the one hour mark. Its a cool movie, just awkward to get into.

What's up with that?! I'm a towering titan of flawless logic! You align yourself with the mighty when you stand with me!

I always thought Ronnie was on team Logan... I know I was always on team Ronnie. I thought we were pals... practically family. Where did it all go wrong? Today started out so well. S'okay, I'll just dig a deeper trench. I've got enough peach schnapps and tinned ham to weather this storm; bring it on. It's not over 'til the fat lady sings, and that fat lady is Lara Flynn Boyle - and she isn't gonna be singing for a long time!

Anyway...

'Harry Brown': So-so revenge flick starring an elderly Michael Caine. A bit slow moving, but ok.

I am with ya. I thought it was one of the worst movies ever made personally. I walked out of the movies. I was utterly disappointed.

I hated INCEPTION too.

I saw MY SOUL TO TAKE the other day and it was horrible. Hugely disappointing.

I started to watch REC 2 last night. I had really enjoyed the first one...but for some reason the first half hour of the second one felt like I was watching someone play a video game: Guys with guns run down a hallway, something pops out at them, they shoot it.

I might try to watch the rest of it tonight but so far my hopes arent too high.

I also saw WORLDS GREATEST DAD a few nights agi. Now THAT was a good movie!

Ok I watched The Fighter. I thought it was good but not great. I believe it is worth a watch.

I also watched True Grit. I can't tell you what it is like compared to the original 1969. I am not a John Wayne fan at all, but I am a masiive Jeff Bridges fan. I thought it was really good. Probably the best movie from 2010, but then again it would not be hard to take that title.

On DVD: Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow.

This is becoming one of my guilty pleasures. I love the whole feel of this movie, which was achieved by some pretty intence CGI scenery throughout. It's got a real 1930s Art Deco vibe going on, and just suits the concept perfectly. There are very few principal actors (Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Giovanni Ribisi, Ling Bai) and some good cameos by Michael Gambon and Omid Djalili. Action is cool, and despite maybe wanting a stronger plot, it holds together very well.

Prey for Rock & Roll (2003)

This was a disappointment.
Prey For Rock & Roll is the story of Jacki and her all-girl rock and roll band, Clam Dandy,
who are trying to make it in the LA club scene of the late 1980's.
Starring Gina Gershon, Drea de Matteo, Lori Petty, Shelly Cole and Marc Blucas.

Mix the tv-show The L Word, some punk band rock documentary and any 00s drama movie together and this is what you get.
If this was supposed to be set in the late 80s, i didn´t see or feel it.
And to tell the truth i didn´t even like the music.
Next!

Well I bit the bullet and finally watched the Karate Kid remake. Was it horrible? No. Was it anywhere near as good as the original? Duh! No. It was okay. I honestly think if someone's never seen the original they would like this one. My cousin's little boy loves it (he's also never seen the orignial). Anyway, just my thoughts.

I also watched Halletsville (diappointing horror) and House of the Devil. House of the Devil has a real 80s feel to it, IMO, like it was actually filmed in the 80s. It started off slow but it really got good at the end.

Funny, Logan. [Smile] Mulholland Dr. started as a pilot for a TV series. The network got a look at it, was understandably horrified, and Lynch took it back and added the second part to make it one of his uniquely crazy films. As I've always said, you could lock me in a room for ten straight years, and I couldn't come up with the weirdness of 30 seconds in a Lynch film. He's a genius... Completely insane, but still a genius.

I saw Drive Angry in 3D over the weekend. It is an exceedingly and aggressively stupid movie that knows that it is exceedingly and aggressively stupid and is also violent and sleazy--and the 3D, from the folks who brought you the remake of My Bloody Valentine, is excellent. In other words, it is a very entertaining throwback exploitation film, kind of like a souped-up Race with the Devil. Among a bunch of aggressively weird performances, including Nic Cage (with yet another goofy hairdo), David Morse, Billy Burke, and Tom Atkins, William Fichtner steals the show as Satan's accountant. ("My boss is a quiet guy, well read.) See it in the theatre in 3D if you can.

Faster starring Dwayne Johnson and Billy Bob Thornton. It was okay, but not something I'd watch over and over.
Crash, our local little paper has a guy who does a movie review every week. He is a real Debbie Downer when it comes to anything but Shakespeare basically. He gave Drive Angry a horrible review. I tend to ignore every one of his reviews.

Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
Helen, I saw this one too. The unnecessary remake--compared to the original--is extremely well made and acted and focuses more on the revenge than on the terrible acts perpetrated on the heroine in the first half of the movie, which is the exact opposite of the primitive-looking, but still pretty potent, original. While I have seen this level of violence before in Euro-films, for a relatively mainstream U.S. film, it was way, way over the top, almost obscenely so.

The Next Three Days, starring Russell Crowe and Elizabeth Banks. It was a good flick. Filmed here in Pittsburgh in Nov.-Dec. of 2009 I believe. I recognized alot of the shots/scenery even though I am not a city dweller. Especially the shots in Oakland after having driven there evey week to the Dr.'s. I remember the local news stations interviewing Crowe. He rode his bicycle all over the city on breaks from filming and he loved the city.

Nativity (2009). Fairly low budget, British family movie starring just about everyone on british tv.

A simple storyline - The teacher at a small primary school becomes director of the school Natviity play by default, and finds himself up against his old acting buddy, who is now the head of the local private school for rich, talented kids. In a fit of envy whilst being told how wonderful the other play will be, he blurts out a 'white lie' that his ex-girlfriend, now a big hollywood producer, is coming to see the play, together with plans for a movie. Thing is, some white lies become bigger and badder the longer they thrive..... and seeing as there has been no contact with the old flame in five years, it's going to be hard getting through this one.

I saw this with no real expectations, but the performances, the storyline, the kids and the honesty of it all made for a really good, really funny and quite poignant movie, so it gets an 8/10 and a recommendation that you add it to your Netflix queues...

Hobo with a Shotgun (2011). Rutger Hauer is a hobo with a shotgun dispensing his brand of vigilante justice one shell at a time. This was the highly acclaimed faux Grindhouse trailer made into a feature film by two Canadians from Nova Scotia. It was pretty much as I expected. While Rutger Hauer is sincere in the lead--he just wants to get enough money to buy a lawnmower and open a business--the film is pretty much the trailer expanded to 86 minutes. It does have some very cute, funny things in it--and Hauer has that wonderful, classic speech to the newborns in the hospital--but it's just an excuse for way, way over-the-top violence, more than in any other Canadian film I've seen. The film is also too technically proficient to be a lost 80s grindhouse film, but the two guys are filmmakers to watch.

The Good Shepherd (2006)

Laconic and self-contained, Edward Wilson heads CIA covert operations during the Bay of Pigs. The agency suspects that Castro was tipped, so Wilson looks for the leak. As he investigates, he recalls, in a series of flashbacks, his father's death, student days at Yale (poetry; Skull and Bones), recruitment into the fledgling OSS, truncated affairs, a shotgun marriage, cutting his teeth on spy craft in London, distance from his son, the emergence of the Cold War, and relationships with agency, British, and Soviet counterparts. We watch his idealism give way to something else: disclosing the nature of that something else is at the heart of the film's narration as he closes in on the leak. -- IMDb

I waited on him a few times when I used to work in the mall, and he used to joke around with me about some of the crazies that I always somehow managed to get stuck waiting on, lol. Anyhoo, the movie was good. Some parts were kinda unbelievable, but eh, it's just a movie.

i watched killer scarecrow movie husk http://youtu.be/8_mReKBvGig from the afterdark movie studios,turned out a pretty decent watch,didn't notice any recognisable faces in it but my wife did spot some actress in it who used to be in the aussie soap home and away. plus i watched wes craven's my soul to take http://youtu.be/RmByUgdi6wE ,mixed feelings about this one,did not find it to be as god awful as some critics would have me believe but the plot did have me scratching my head at times,plus unlike craven's earlier efforts there were no effective scare scene's to talk off! still i liked it a lot more than cravens cursed(2005) starring christina ricci.

british soaps can be too depressing at times i think amaranth,i think neighbours and home and away seem to be a bit more bright and breezy and have not so much of the doom and gloom which british soaps tend to dwell on,which makes them that more fun!
 
Posted by Logan 5 (Member # 1467) on :
 
I think it's easy to hate British soaps when you live in Britain. Watching Neighbours and Home & Away feels like a mini-holiday to somewhere with better weather. I'm sure that people who live in other places don't view our soaps the way we do. Maybe the 'realism' would be appealing to an Aussie?

Watched Crazy Heart last night- starring Jeff Bridges, Colin Ferrell, Robert Duvall and Maggie Gyllenhall. Excellent acting and I was surprised at how well Bridges and Ferrell sang. And I am not really a fan of country music. Maggie Gyllenhall still gets on my nerves, what with her slouching and hair tugging. What does she have against bras too, lol?!

The sad thing is that I thought it was an entertaining movie, though it was a bit uncomfortable to watch with friends. I figured it out early, but kept squirming in my seat worried Skip and Suzi had forgotten the party cups again.

Valley, I liked "Chloe" too. Then again, I really like Atom Egoyan's stuff most of the time. He's a fine world-class filmmaker though kind of cold and clinical sometimes, less so than usual in "Chloe." The extraordinarily overexposed Amanda Seyfried (does this gal take every script that comes her way, seven movies in the last three years!) is really pretty good in it. Now I'd like to see the French original "Nathalie." I'd be curious as to what your thoughts were on "Where the Truth Lies," which is a really polarizing Egoyan film.

"The Good German" (2006), Steven Soderbergh's black-and-white homage to all those Warner Brothers 1940's war-romance films with George Clooney, Tobey Maguire, and Cate Blanchett. Excellent looking and entertaining film, no great world beater by any means, but kind of like Soderbergh's "Kafka," interesting enough...

Yeah, P-girl, The International caught me by surprise. I just borrowed a stack of flicks from a buddy, and had little to no expectations at all. It's very mature and unassuming, unlike most Hollywood movies of that ilk. Good actors, good dialogue, intelligent script, and suspenseful without having to resort to car chases and big explosions every five minutes.

I guess you could call it an action thriller for adults..... not many of those around anymore [Frown]

Loosely based on the BCCI bank scandal of the late 80's- early 90's.

Correction, it was Naomi Watts, not Sienna Miller... can't tell those blonde wafes apart [Smile]

I would rather hang myself than watch anything with these useless losers in. Russel Brand is a pathetic deadbeat who is not funny in the least. Absoloute hack. Jonah Hill, same but add fat too the list.

the steam experiment (2009) about twitching psychotic val kilmer locking half a dozen people in a steam room,then watching them slowly losing the plot (just like the viewer)as the temperature rises.dear oh dear! how did this one go so wrong,with the likes of val kilmer and eric roberts as well as armande assante,ok i know there best years are probably behind them all but it's still sad to see the likes of val kilmer (top secret,spartan,real genius)and eric roberts who gave one of the most convincing performances i've seen in 1983's star 80 reduced to such drivel like this! plus it's got one of the worse cop out endings to boot i've seen for quite sometime! both my wife and i looked at each other quite puzzled! steam experiment trailer - http://youtu.be/3ecn5IxLbR4 .

I really enjoyed "Zombieland".. though the Bill Murray cameo as you both pointed out was a bit over the top. Overall, it was a decent comedy/horror. Not a classic.. but decent.


And Crash.. I actually thought that "Chloe" was bizarre and quite entertaining (even though I figured it out early).. but wish I'd just watched it alone. I got some remarks from the peanut gallery on it fer sure. [Eek!]
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
I liked "Zombieland" too, though it's a poor cousin to the really funny and inspired "Shaun of the Dead."

Yeah, "Chloe" could inspire remarks from the peanut gallery. You got me thinking... Here's a potential thread, with examples from my own personal experience. Best 80's "date" film: My choice would be "Body Heat." Worst 80's "date" film: "Altered States" (If you've seen it, you'll know why.) [Smile]

"Cop Out" (2010), the throwback-to-the-80s buddy cop film directed, but not written, by Kevin Smith, starring Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan. I thought that it was a lot better than most folks said that it was, but why would anyone hire Kevin Smith as a director-for-hire? He's a wonderful, idiosyncratic writer, but by his own admission, not a great director. So let's hire him for his weak skill set??? Anyway, your fondness for "Cop Out" will depend on how much you like Tracy Morgan. Personally, I find him to be pretty funny most of the time. (Did you ever notice how he delivers every line exactly the same way in everything that he does? His kind of disaffected, mumbling, stream-of-consciousness, goofy deliver is hard to describe. But just watch an episode of "30 Rock"...) The film doesn't really work because it dwells too much on the action elements of the plot to be a comedy and is way too goofy to be an action film. It's ultimately just OK, but it does prove that Kevin Smith can direct a studio film if he wants to. (Not sure that he should again though...at least one that he didn't write.) I hope Smith got paid well!

watched Blue Valentine with Michelle Williams and Ryan Gossling.

while the movie had some good performances, it wasn't anything to write home about. it's basically an interesting look at a couple who fall in love when they are young and how things take a turn of the course of time..relationship wise..

a lot of flashbacks in the movie...and it was sort of a downer.. [Frown]

I enjoyed "Inception" .. thought it was the 10's version of "The Matrix" .. though not as good. But I'm a huge Joseph Gordon-Levitt fan.. so that played into it.

I will agree that it was slow moving and you had to keep your mind going to figure out all the layers involved with the story. So Jay Lee falling asleep during a movie that is already a dream within a dream within a dream might not work well. ha

"Slither" is a blatant rip off/homage of "Shivers," a/k/a/ "They Came From Within," which while enjoyable (Nathan Fillion is always good) can't hold a candle to the unique, startling--and sometimes disgusting--Cronenberg film. I am old enough to remember some of the controversy surrounding the original release of "Shivers," when Cronenberg was excoriated on the floor of Canadian Parliament. He got government development money to make the film, and most people at the time were simply appalled that their tax dollars were going to make sleazy horror films. Now "Shivers" is regarded as Cronenberg's first classic...It only took a few decades. [Smile]

Ok you guys have made me want to see Shivers but honestly they seem simliar but also don't seem similar? Was Shivers more of a horror film or was it funny? it sounds sexual and dark? Slither doesn't rely on the sexual bit?

Shivers plot:

Dr. Emil Hobbes (Fred Doederlin) is conducting unorthodox experiments with parasites for use in transplants, however, he believes that humanity has become over-rational and lost contact with its flesh and its instincts, so the effects of the organism he actually develops is a combination aphrodisiac and venereal disease. Once implanted, it causes uncontrollable sexual desire in the host. Hobbes implants the parasites in his teen-aged mistress, who promiscuously spreads them throughout the ultra-modern apartment building, outside Montreal, where they live. The community's resident physician, Roger St. Luc (Paul Hampton), and his assistant, Nurse Forsythe (Lynn Lowry) attempt to stop the parasite infestation before it overwhelms the city's population.

Slither plot:

A meteor housing a malevolent alien parasite called the Long One crashes into the town of Woodsville. Local Grant Grant (Rooker) is subsequently infected and killed by the parasite, which in turn takes over his body and absorbs his consciousness and memories. [2] With the alien now in control of his body, 'Grant' begins to slowly change into a hideous sluglike monster.

Soon the rest of the town are infected by the Long One's parasites and become zombies controlled via a hive mind connection with 'Grant', who plans to infect the rest of the world until he is 'all that is'. Its consciousness, however, is tampered with the real Grant's memories and his love for his wife, Starla Grant (Banks). It is up to a group of survivors lead by Woodsville's sheriff Bill Pardy (Fillion) and Starla to kill the Long One and stop the infestation from spreading any further.

The Final (2010) a film of revenge against high school bullys, not a bad b-movie would of liked to see a bit more scare factor though

Shivers is a straight ahead horror film, and if you've seen Cronenberg's early films, then you'll know exactly what to expect--creepy, startling, nasty, way-out-there stuff. The plot is a social-disease metaphor.

Slither is the lighter version of Shivers because it's played for laughs and without the sexual content. Actually, Slither is more like Night of the Creeps than anything, but, quite frankly, it can't hold a candle to Creeps, which I've always thought was one of the most inspired horror-comedies. It is extremely clever and mixes the horror and humor so well.

The Mechanic starring Jason Statham. I'd give it 2 or 2 1/2 stars out of 5 stars. I have yet to see the original in its entirety, which starred Charles Bronson. Every time I start to watch it, I never finish it.

Finally watched Paul (2011) last night Simon Pegg, Nick Frost- Its not like their usual stuff its been a bit 'hollywooded' up but its actually a decent film- I like they made references to other sci-fi movies. I like that they still used stuff from there previous movies- anyone that knows their work will know what i'm talking about sausage! The alien Paul (voiced by seth rogan)was fantastic visually. Did my ears deceive me did Frost call Pegg ' Peggy' at the start when they just started driving the RV? anyone else notice. Recommend this film 4/5

for about a good month my local blockbuster had next to nothing in that caught my eye for rental except for the brilliant the fighter with mark wahlberg and christian bale.

then within one week they have -danny boyles 127 hours,clint eastwoods hereafter starring matt damon,henry's crime with keanu reeves and james caan and lastly drive angry with nic cage and amber heard.
so i done there 4 for £10 deal ,not bad really when you consider it costs about £10 per movie at my local multiplex theatre.

made for some great viewing and not a stinker amongst them!

Definately Maybe (2008). Enjoyable chick-flick, with a twist. Ryan Reynolds plays a guy going through a divorce, and on one of his scheduled sleepover nights, his precocious pre-teen daughter asks for the story of how her parents got together. What follows is a twisted tale of the three women in his life, and his daughter tries to guess which of the three (name changed) women turn out to be her mother. You never forget she's dealing with the break-up of her parents, but the tale of Emily, April and Summer draws you in.....

Add me to the list of fans of "The Perfect Getaway," a tidy, well-acted piece with some funny, self-referential jibes at Hollywood. David Twohy has a real knack for writing and directing well-made little thrillers. ("Below," the haunted submarine film with Bruce Greenwood, is my personal favorite.) A friend of mine thinks that Timothy Olyphant is charming and has so much screen presence here. I think that he's right. [Smile] If you haven't seen it or heard anything about it, I wouldn't even watch the trailer, which I think gives way too much away. I saw the film again recently and noticed how cleverly constructed the screenplay really is. Twohy's stuff is always worth checking out. [Smile]

Valley, I don't think that the three of us dissed this film at all. It may not be "The Conversation" or "Eastern Promises" as far as amazingly tricky plot twists go, but it's quite fun. David Twohy's stuff usually is--and always gets recommended by me. [Smile]

I was actually trying to agree with you that it was a decent movie. Re-reading my posting though .. I can see it might not have come across that way.

I finally got to the only Tarantino I hadn't seen, Inglourious Basterds. The first 20 mins or so I thought I wasn't gonna like it but then it sucked me right in and I thought the second half was really funny  - Christoph and Melanie were great. I think it's one I'll like even more with more viewings. I'd put this 4th behind Dogs, Kill Bill 1 and Death Proof.

Hahaha. I thought that "The Happening" was one of the worst films from a major studio in the past 10 years. Leo, didn't you just despise Mark Wahlberg's amazingly awful performance? That "little," soft, wimpy voice of his and the wide-eyed stares of stupidity just got to me. The move didn't serve the usually dependable Zooey Deschanel well either. I saw an interview with director M. Night who was bragging, comparing it to "The Godfather," and saying that audiences were shaking afterward. Shaking with laughter, most likely...

totally weird movie! almost embarrassed to say I watched it, then again I love John Waters movies? haha

Red State. I like Kevin Smith. I really do, and I keep thinking that someday he will do a film that will be a masterpiece and win lots of awards. This is not that film. There are some brilliant ideas and dialogue, Michael Parks gives an Oscar-worthy performance, and it is a really well-made film, not the typically static Smith thing. Yet, like just about every Kevin Smith film, it is directionless and runs out of steam in the last 20 minutes. It has no discernible focus. Is it supposed to be a satirical horror film? A condemnation of fundamentalists? A Ruby Ridge metaphor? I don't really know, nor do I really care. It's interesting enough, his most serious film yet, but I was left scratching my head. Pity...

Kevin Smith movies i´ve seen are Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma and the brilliant Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
"Dogma" is a favorite, HS, and I do like "Chasing Amy" and "Jay and Silent Bob, aT. Still, he's not in the top echelon of filmmakers for me--likeable "yes," genius "no." But I do think that Smith writes some of the best, funniest dialogue around. He's like David Mamet or Quentin Tarantino. Sure, his dialogue is not "realistic" in that you hear people in life talking like that, but within the world of his movies, it's completely believable and very entertaining. That said, until this new one, "Red State," came along, Smith--even by his own admission--was a pretty terrible director. (In one of his stand-up routines, he even joked about how had he directed "The Green Hornet," he would have had the action scenes occur off-screen because he didn't know how to direct action scenes. Take a look at the car chase in his work-for-hire "Cop Out," for example. It's terribly filmed and edited.) Here, he's progressed by leaps and bounds into a truly mature director, at the expense of a clear focus in his screenplay, which, while making serious points, still has a heart of juvenalia. He just didn't add the chimp this time. [Smile]

Attack The Block

Fed up of seeing aliens fighting the military might of the good ole US of A? Then this is the movie for you! Inner city London is host to the invasion and its up to hoody's and drug dealers to fight off the menace using whatever 'tools' they can get their hands on.

Unfortunately comparisons to Shaun Of The Dead are inevitable but totally unfounded (Nick Frost and the British-ness of it are the only comparisons really!)

This is a fantastic movie and a unique experience. Only problem for my american friends is that they may struggle with some of the street language but don't let it put you off, this movie is definitely worth a watch!

I was surprised at how much I actually enjoyed this. I'm not the biggest fan of Jake Gyllenhaal, but I thought he was excellent. Michelle Monaghan was great as well -- not to mention stunning...  -

It's also well worth picking up on Blu-ray -- it looks & sounds fantastic. Although the extras are on the slim side:

* Audio commentary with Jake Gyllenhaal, director Duncan Jones and writer Ben Ripley
* Cast and crew insights
* Focal points
* Expert Intel – The Science Behind Source Code
* Access Source Code: Trivia track

Three Musketeers in 3D

Oh dear, oh dear...

The shame of it all was that for the most part it actually managed to follow the plot of the book. The inclusion of the airships and stupid Resi Evil style stunts WERE both stupid and pointless (The airship could easily have been replaced by a real ship and the story would have lost nothing and the film better for it!) Now I liked the RE films for what they were but this was a mess and yes Milla was totally miscast in it. 3 or 4/10 because there were some (admittedly not many) good things about the film oncluding various cast members and sword choreography

Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, the hit of film festivals for the past year and widely praised as the next big cult film.

The concept is brilliant, the leads are fantastic, it is very well made, and you will laugh a lot. You can't beat that. It's in theaters and on demand now.

Killer Elite starring Jason Statham and Robert DeNiro. I'd give it 2 1/2 out of 5 stars. It was nonstop action. It is based on a novel written in the early 1980's.
I really wanted to see Warrior, but it was not playing at the nearby cineplex, and I don't like to go to the other closest one after dark.

The other movieplex is at the Waterfront, which was supposed to be an improvement to Homestead, or should I call it Homeghetto. It is a nice place to shop, eat and go to movies during the daytime, but I won't go there after dark anymore. Too many shootings and stabbings and too many stray bullets.

This past weekend we watched Bridesmaids and Bad Teacher. Both were funny- I liked Bridesmaids the best. I honestly could totally relate to the Kristen Wiig character.

Just watched Bridesmaids. Love it [Smile] A very slight negative I have is I didn't really think the brother/sister thing worked, but everything else was great. The scenes that had both Rose Byrne and Kristen Wiig in them were the best, friggin' hilarious!
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
Yeah, it's very, very funny in a lot of different ways, something for everyone--slapstick, gross-out, funny dialogue... My favorite line, simply because I love the way Kristen Wiig uses her little passive-agressive voice is when she's getting thrown out of first class on the plane and says so pathetically, "Help me. I'm poor." Under the circumstances, everybody can relate to that. LOL

High Fidelity (2000)

 -

I think this still might have to rank as my favorite John Cusack film. Or at least the one movie I've seen more times than any others of his. I'm not much of a John Cusack fan, but I just think his subtle humour and melodramatic persona works best in this film. And a big nod goes to some nice funny peformances by the supporting cast in this one. Jack Black, Joan Cusack, Tim Robbins, Lisa Bonet, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Sara Gilbert, Todd Louiso, they all are funny in their own individual ways in this movie. Even though it's a 2000 flick, this movie serves as a pretty good definitive movie for the 90's grunge era. From the pre-recordable CD/Cassette Tape Dubbing references to the grungy, dirty fashion. It's a nice trip back to the era I'm sure many would like to forget..lol.

So yeah, I can highly recommend this movie for any Cusack fan. And also for anybody who's just been mowed down in a failed relationship, this movie serves as a good break-up flick to watch and get a few chuckles out of.

Teens, bikinis and half-eaten bodies everywhere.

Of course this won´t beat the original Piranha but it´s a fun flick.
Some very gritty special effects and some pretty bad cgi, especially in the beginning
during the Richard Dreyfuss´ Jaws homage.

It was very nice to see Elisabeth Shue and Christopher Lloyd in this one.

If you liked the first Sherlock Holmes you'll love this. Outstanding performances, great action set pieces and a compelling storyline.

Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Been waiting for this one! I loved the books and watched the original Swedish trilogy so was keen to see what Fincher would do with it.

I know its the done thing to slate american remakes over their foreign language originals but I just cant do it, almost everything about this movie worked.

The one thing the original did get better was the casting of Lisbeth. I'm sorry Rooney but you were outdone by Noomi Rapace on this one. I read a story that she was considered to reprise her role but turned it down as she didn't want to tell the same story twice. It was a shame because as good as Rooney was I felt that she was next best thing.

Other than that a great (if somewhat disturbing) movie.


The Girl with a Noms Tattoo

**I didn't know whether to keep quiet or inform the sweet gray haired old lady sitting in fromt of me that there would be a graphic anal rape scene in the movie**

Veronica .. I'm interested in "Young Adult", the previews look darkly entertaining. I think Ronnie saw it too, I wanna hear what she thought about it.

I've watched:

Hanna (2011) - I just couldn't get into it. I really liked the premise, but the movie felt poorly executed.


The Fighter (2010) - it wasn't what I was expecting, but I still thought it was quite good. Of course I must warn you that I'm a Mark Wahlberg fan. It all started with the 90' s movie "Fear" with Reese Witherspoon where he played a charming psycho.

A Christmas Carol (2009) - amazing animation.. really popped on my tv screen.

Taken

It is a story of a young girl who goes for a holiday with her friend and wind up getting kidnapped and forced into sex slavery and the father's, played by Liam Neeson, fight to get her back.

It was a dark brutal film that gave an insight into a work that is very prevalent, very lucrative, but also very clandestine. A world that consumes so many innocent people.
It was fast paced, action packed and Liam Neeson brilliantly portrayed the one man army who said "No" to the evil who slithered through a very callous world in a fight to save his daughter's life.

If you're a fan of gritty action thriller's Taken is well worth watching.

The Swedish films are great! The American version of "Tattoo," while well done, was an unecessary remake which brought nothing really new--except keeping stupid Americans from having to read subtitles--to the material.

My understanding is that the three films were actually longer and did run together as one mini-series in Sweden. (I think that it was called "Millenium.") The unedited series has not, as of yet, turned up anywhere with English subtitles, which is too bad because I would watch it too. [Smile]

The first? 'The Girl Who Played With Water'?

'Take Me Home Tonight': Odd movie. The timeline was really hard to keep track of, and there was no reason for it to be a period piece (ditto 50% of movies set in the 80's). It was intermittently funny though.

Your Highness, a completely amazing movie experience. I watched the first 10 minutes without laughing once and asked myself whether it was possible that I would not laugh at all for the remaining 90 minutes. And I didn't! Just terrible, and what happens when you give Danny McBride and his buddies about $50 million to make a movie. Every joke is an unfunny variant on bad language, smoking dope, or juvenile sex concepts. James Franco, Zooey Deschanel, and Natalie Portman should all be ashamed. There is no way that this looked good on paper. It is one of the worst major studio films that I have seen in a long time.
