Still wanting to see Splice.

Get Him to the Greek was a tad disappointing but still funny.

I laughed till I had tears in my eyes twice during MacGruber while the other 7 ppl in the theater didn't really laugh much. I was "that" guy.

There Will Be Blood

Oil rig blowing is one of the great scenes of the last 10 years or so.

Overall however, disappointing.

That scene is a perfect example of how to use special effects. The rest of the movie was a complete waste.

Today's worst movies run circles around the best from the 20-60s.

So, what I haven't seen on your list, I have absolutely no desire to. And I recommend everyone else here pass as well.

I've watched two full movies in the last, roughly, 3 years.  Up and Up in the Air.  So, apparently, if it has Up in the title I'll watch it and I recommend everyone here do the same.

Don't want to be hard on your list (is that every motion picture you've ever seen?), just am in complete opposition to the common thought that older motion pictures are superior to what we have now.

Sure, It's a Wonderful Life is great, but the plots are dull, they're falsely acted, and visually they don't exist. Michael Bay is a better director than John Ford.

Also, I didn't see one title on your list that wasn't an english speaker. I'd recommend you give the world a try.

First, no that isn't every movie I've ever seen -- its the ones I've gotten around to rating. As far as whether older pictures are "superior" to new ones -- that obviously can be very subjective. There are a lot of dull, hokie and silly old movies. However, I will say that I'm just not a fan of the sensationalism, paganism and special effects orgy that seems to plague most newer films. Older films tend to be cleaner, which is something that I can appreciate. Of course, your preferences probably differ.

With regards to dull plots -- It's true that the thriller and action genres are much more common now than the classic era; however, that doesn't mean that the plots are any better. There are many classic films with really good plots.

The acting styles in films have definitely changed -- however per your example, the acting in Bay films can't hold a candle to the acting in Ford films.

To say that classic movies "don't exist" visually is just incorrect. Now if your definition of "visuals" is solely limited to "Bayesque" special effects and CG animation, then you would be correct. However, there are many old films that put many new ones to shame from a pure cinematography and art direction standpoint. For instance, "Rebecca", "Night of the Hunter", "Citizen Kane", "Black Narcissus", "Touch of Evil".

As far as foreign films, I'll tell you what. You suggest 5 foreign ones for me that you think I'd like or should see, and I'll suggest 5 classics for you. We can both broaden our horizons.  :cheers:

Not sure how you're making those assumptions since Godfather and F&F are not on that list. NT is just good, clean, fun entertainment. I liked it. A lot of my ratings are based on enjoyment, not necessarily "social worth". And btw -- you lumped Godfather and F&F together??? lols my friend!

Before I begin I want to note that there are motion pictures made between 1920 and 1970 that I appreciate, but very, very few of them were made in America.

Older films tend to be cleaner, which is something that I can appreciate.

Plot: Motion pictures are not just more exciting today, but also much more inventive and deal with a wider variety of subjects.
Acting: Are you sure? Old Hollywood acting is straight from the stage. They didn't try for anything resembling realism.

Good answer.

Motion pictures are still a new art, but that doesn't mean they don't possess a far greater potential. They are a multi-dimensional medium that can realistically create a lifelike moment in time. People don't sweat and scream as they read. Blame the artists if a movie doesn't live up to a book you've read, not the medium.

I read non-fiction.

if its a good book you will sweat, scream, cry, completely destroy your life for a day, make your year, completely change your understanding of life, etc. a perfect example would be the bible, or any other religious text. books have a way of dictating our lives in way movies cannot do just yet. don't know if they will, but at the time being it is pretty insane to think of it as a superior artform.

Right. Non-fiction is the most efficient way to deliver information. That's why I read it. Non-fiction can be life changing. Non-fiction can be skillfully written, but, to me, it's not quite art. It's just info.

being awfully liberal with the term "non-fiction." sure if you are a creationist, then yes the bible would be "non-fiction." however movies span into the world of non-fiction as well. and with regards to non-fiction it still is very much an artform. biography's and historical texts still need guidance through skill and precision of language.

Thanks for the list! I looked them all up, and am going to try and watch some of them when I get a chance. A Man Escaped, Au Hasard Balthazar & The Spirit of the Beehive looked particularly interesting. I suppose, much like B&W movies, foreign films are somewhat of an aquired taste. I've seen a very few foreign films (like Metropolis, Das Boot & Le Serpent). Typically I've started out all like  :shy: and then halfway through I'm like  :dunno: and at the end I'm like  :confused:  . I'm okay with ambiguity and symbolism to a point... I just don't find it that enjoyable when that's all there is and I'm like... what was THAT about? lol Anyway, I look forward to trying some of those on your list.

I did want to say something about visuals in film -- I get what you're saying, at least to a certain degree. However, I guess I am able to take something as a product of its era and appreciate it. The thing about Kane and some of the other films is not that it can't be duplicated or even improved upon today, but that it was unique and groundbreaking in its day and pioneered much of what has evolved since (and no little thanks to advancement in equipment and technology). Similarly, Psycho could very well be considered the birth of the modern thriller films, and many basic elements have been duplicated (however IMO seldom if ever topped) countless times. No one had ever seen anything like it at the time (well, continentally anyway).

Anyway, here are a few classics for your consideration:

Make Way for Tomorrow

Don't think too hard about them - feel them.

The pioneer/never been seen before/groundbreaking argument is probably where we differ most. I can respect and appreciate that those were true at the time, but a better test is how a film comes through today.  2001: A Space Odyssey feels as if it could have been made this decade, but it was released in 1968. That is part of what makes it a masterpiece, because it has held up, it's as good now as it ever was; it's not dated, it's modern. Most hollywood films from the classic era are dated by multiple elements of their production and therefore are ultimately inferior to most of what we have today. Not just technically, but especially in their tone, which to me is probably the single most important aspect of a motion picture.

I'll give a couple of yours a chance, probably.

An Education
www.imdb.com/title/tt1174732/
We've all seen this many times, without the Pedo. The moral of the story? Life has no consequences and problems resolve very, very quickly. And abandoning morals for the sake of love is the right thing to do, because you're in love and it feels so good.

nice summary

I thought that Day Breakers looked horrible when I saw the previews. A lot of people told me it was pretty good, so I watched it. Sure enough, it was just terrible. The whole vampire thing is just so played out now, and I wish it would just die.

The next sure-to-be terrible movies that I just can't resist watching: Book of Eli and Legion. I don't know why I do it to myself but I just can't help it.

I'll be watching The Crazies tonight. Hopefully it will be a nice, fun gory flick that won't even worry about plot, much like Ninja Assassin.

I wouldn't say I hate the genre. I thought Bram Stoker's Dracula was amazing (even Keanu couldn't ruin it) and I like to watch True Blood for comic relief sometimes. I just hate how every vampire movie writes its own rules for vampires (how long it takes for sunlight to kill them, resistance to holy water, garlic, etc.) Also, the last time I was in the book store, I walked past the teen section and noticed that in the entire section, maybe 10 books weren't about vampires. Is this crap all that kids read these days? :cyclist:

I also don't understand how Twilight is so popular. The two movies that have come out so far are two of the worst movies that I have ever seen. They make Daybreakers look like it deserves an oscar.

Things I Learned from PW's Recommended Movies, Session 1

All right -- I made it through one of the movies PW recommended and am here to offer a few thoughts about it. The movie I watched was "The Spirit of the Beehive" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070040/), a Spanish period film set around 1940 and released in 1973. My initial impressions upon viewing the film did not yield the need to introduce any new explanatory emoticons. It was pretty much the way I had pegged some of the other foreign movies:  :shy: ,  :dunno: , :confused:. I almost  :zzz:'ed after about an hour.

Now after watching this, it's obvious that PW's suggestion that I not try and figure too much out and just "feel" the film MUST come into play, because the film is so "interpretive" that trying to "figure it out" is pretty much pointless and frustrating. Now I get films that convey a message through some symbolism or unspoken imagery. The problem I have with this film is that it was SO vague, I don't even really have a clue what I can take away from it. However, lest I be accused of not trying, below is my list of things I learned from the movie (Warning: Things below may contain spoilers -- if its possible for this film to have any).a

Things I learned from "The Spirit of the Beehive":

Movies delivered to the theatre in trucks with tarps may not be appropriate for young children's psyches.

If your father is a beekeeper, you can pretty much consider yourself lucky you got born.

Railroads are terrible postal carriers.

You can't breathe with your heart.

There are good mushrooms, bad mushrooms, and psychedelic mushrooms.

If you're mean to your little sister, penance will probably involve having your mattress taken away.

If you die in a barn, you'll inevitably go to your grave missing a sock.

---------------------

OK, so seriously -- maybe a better understanding of the Spanish Civil War would help me. Obviously this family was really dysfunctional and the girls were fascinated with death, presumably because they'd seen some nasty stuff during the war. I hated that it took over an hour for really ANYTHING to happen. The scenes of wide-eyed little Ana just drug on too long. Who on earth did away with the dude in the barn, and how did anyone even have a clue he was there. That was really weird (someone just happened on him and decided to murder him because he was on the wrong side?). I also gather that he was the dude mommy was in love with. I guess I'm supposed to take away that war is hell and especially for the kids... after its over people all buzz around like bees working hard and getting nowhere (or whatever that poem said). Kind of interesting on some level... kinda felt like I was on a trip from one of those mushrooms the whole movie long, though.  :dunno:

Verdict:
 :star: :star: :star: :raccoon: :raccoon:

Out of enjoyment maybe 2/5, but I give it a bit extra because it probably has more significance than I give it credit for. :)

Things that should probably be known about PoetWarrior's motion picture taste:

  • PoetWarrior's tastes don't particularly align with the tastes of others who have seen a comparable number & type of film. This can be viewed as a positive or a negative depending on your viewpoint.
  • PoetWarrior completely dismisses elements of films others find to be noteworthy/great.
  • PoetWarrior believes film should be experienced and felt, not intellectually understood.
  • PoetWarrior believes what the viewer sees is the most important element of a motion picture.


I watched it last night.

What I learned:

1)  After also seeing Days of Heaven, I would guess PW finds more beauty in the landscape of Kansas than most.
2)  PW does not need dialogue to enjoy a film.

1) Kansas is a beautiful place, as is every spec of the universe.
2) Absolutely true, this is key.

It wasn't great and that's why it was disappointing.

Nolan should stop directing films with budgets larger than $25 mil.

What other films have you seen that explore dream world time-altering concepts better than Inception?  I would very much like to watch several films with similar premises to Inception that aren't so superficially plot driven.  Inception asked the right questions, it just was at the wrong location.  Like Will Ferrel after he started banging chicks at funerals in Wedding Crashers.

A tough question. Ultimately, what Inception is about, to me, is the question of: what is reality?. I'll have to think about what titles are out there. I don't keep any logs or lists.

My main complaint about Inception is not just that it doesn't thoroughly explore that question, but that it also fails on the surface as a movie about dreams. Dreams are awesome, crazy experiences that this movie didn't even try to tap in to and that seems like the easiest thing they could have done.

Dreams are awesome, crazy experiences that this movie didn't even try to tap in to and that seems like the easiest thing they could have done.

I absolutely agree about "what is reality?" being the focus, but I think in the movie that was primarily shaped by their manipulation of time.  He found a way to live an entire life in a place completely of his own making in an afternoon with his lover.  Was his motivation for having her question whether the dream was real to escape because he felt the dream world's pressure coming back on top of himself, because he wanted more time with her or less?

The motivations of people and the incredibly complex decisions and actions that we take I think are an interesting component as well.  Because it is difficult to know, particularly when he had been in that dream for that long, "who" was motivating his decision.  Was his sub-conscious making a play and he then conceptualized his motivation differently?  Was the seed of inception planted in his own mind to take actions that would lead to her death based on wishes within his own mind, cognizant of the consequences?

I too am incredibly frustrated that the most interesting aspects of the movie come in small non-"plot" essential minute scenes and do not constitute the majority of the dialogue or action on screen.  While this is an improvement upon that crappy (but fairly easy to look at) film with Jennifer Lopez, I think that many of the most interesting questions could be explored at length in an interesting and watchable movie.  I think a movie about a relationship in similar circumstances to mr/mrs cobb would be outstanding.

I'd ask your cousin how he thinks he's gaining an increased awareness of his existence and the real world as he's under the influence of a mind-altering substance. Whatever he's seeing, feeling or thinking cannot, by its nature, be the truth. I find that comical. Larry Hageman probably should fear his death, however, I don't.

everything you experience in life is real and, by its nature, the truth. existence doesn't cease to be just because you are on drugs, it is merely a different perception on reality. the mind is our living being, and therefore its experience is our experience, our reality. i'm assuming you don't fear death because of your god. he is as much a drug as lsd.

Mr. & Mrs. Cobb were without a doubt the most interesting element of the movie - I'm still struggling to come up with others that match all of thes elements. As you mention, The Cell does somewhat, I suppose. And Memento definitely has some of these elements, as does Mulholland Drive.

I agree that reality does not and cannot cease. But reality is not unique to each individual, it is not determined inside our heads. It is the same for every human being, we do not shape it. There is a supernatural element to it that is outside of what everyone sees as they are walking around every day here on earth, but that doesn't mean when someone on drugs is riding a dragon into a white light that what they perceive is the truth. God isn't a drug because He is true for all, whether you like it or not.

so naive. the use of lsd as an exploration or journey is the same journey someone takes in reading a bible. you come to a conclusion that is a truth for that individual. just because you believe that God supersedes all individuals, and therefore is the truth, does not take away from the fact that he/she/spaghettimonster isn't. The only general truth for all would be our earth, and whether or not a person perceives our worlds actions and reactions (ex: global warming is/is not happening), is up to that individual. in a grander scheme there is your god, anothers god, and so forth. that god is inherently different and provides different truths to each of its followers. reality is unique to each individual. there are shared experiences, sure, but not one persons reality is completely shared. each person has, inherently, a different viewpoint and absorption of their surrounding experience. someone might have better hearing, or better sight, someone by be smarter or duller.

if you are saying that drugs are bad because of health reasons thats one thing, but to say that it isn't a reality to some people is shorthanded. there are indian tribes who's entire religion and sanity lies in the use of peyote. to them it is merely and aid to explore the earth and soul.

to further point out the flaws in your argument, the truth you speak of will be different between each individual in your own religion. there will be, ultimately, some tiny difference in thought shaped by their existence and experience. to say

Quote
God isn't a drug because He is true for all, whether you like it or not.

is ludicrous. even if there is a god, or it so happens that your god is in control, he then would be responsible for the use of drugs and the creation of other religions. or if you prefer a laissez-faire god, then there is no truth until we cease to exist. therefore there is no complete truth in existence.

for the sake of steve dave i will stop this convo here. if you feel like starting it in a different thread go head. sd and i will get together and go on a magic carpet ride to mordor and answer questions from there.

I do. I can't help it after a year or two. There was a time when I'd watch something twice in the span of a view days. I felt it was necessary to get the film. It's amazing how much and how little things change from one viewing to the next.

Obvs sucked hard but was nice to watch with 5 bros and be terrible sexists. Movies that provoke guys to say things like, "this just proves that all bitches are rough ridin' psychos" really entertain me. Sorry to any hos reading.

Poet-
What other films have you seen that explore dream world time-altering concepts better than Inception?  I would very much like to watch several films with similar premises to Inception that aren't so superficially plot driven.  Inception asked the right questions, it just was at the wrong location.

A tough question. Ultimately, what Inception is about, to me, is the question of: what is reality?. I'll have to think about what titles are out there. I don't keep any logs or lists.

My main complaint about Inception is not just that it doesn't thoroughly explore that question, but that it also fails on the surface as a movie about dreams. Dreams are awesome, crazy experiences that this movie didn't even try to tap in to and that seems like the easiest thing they could have done.

I absolutely agree about "what is reality?" being the focus, but I think in the movie that was primarily shaped by their manipulation of time.  He found a way to live an entire life in a place completely of his own making in an afternoon with his lover.  Was his motivation for having her question whether the dream was real to escape because he felt the dream world's pressure coming back on top of himself, because he wanted more time with her or less?

The motivations of people and the incredibly complex decisions and actions that we take I think are an interesting component as well.  Because it is difficult to know, particularly when he had been in that dream for that long, "who" was motivating his decision.  Was his sub-conscious making a play and he then conceptualized his motivation differently?  Was the seed of inception planted in his own mind to take actions that would lead to her death based on wishes within his own mind, cognizant of the consequences?

I too am incredibly frustrated that the most interesting aspects of the movie come in small non-"plot" essential minute scenes and do not constitute the majority of the dialogue or action on screen.  While this is an improvement upon that crappy (but fairly easy to look at) film with Jennifer Lopez, I think that many of the most interesting questions could be explored at length in an interesting and watchable movie.  I think a movie about a relationship in similar circumstances to mr/mrs cobb would be outstanding.

Finally saw this movie and I thought it was great.  I will say I didn't think "what is reality" was the focus of the film, but more the idea of guilt/forgiveness/letting go of guilt.  More evidence to this is that Nolan often seems to weave this subject into his films.  I thought the key for Cobb was reaching the point when he could finally let go of his wife, and more importantly forgive himself for "causing" her death b/c at the end of the day she was still the person who had to choose it.  And it showed that now forgiving youself not only has ramifications on you, but eventually everyone around you.

Beautiful thoughts.  I think both of us were imposing our own desires about the potential of the film on to the plot (which I think both of us thought fell short).  I kind of like the love story better after reading your take.  I probably need to see the movie again.

"I remember a lot of celebration; hugs, kisses and a lot of hooting and hollering," Mitchell said of setting the latest "Donkey Kong" record. "Once that died down, I stood there looking at 'Donkey Kong Jr.' and thought ‘There’s one more thing I have to take care of.' "

....

Mitchell isn't exactly known for being a humble sorta guy. He stopped playing "Donkey Kong" as soon as he had knocked Chien out of the No. 1 spot.  Asked why he stopped, Mitchell reportedly said: “Some say I’m being cocky. Some say I’m being lazy. I say, I’m being Billy Mitchell."

I hate the crap out of this guy but I have to respect the way he disrespected that other guy  :surprised:

The Fighter

Pretty much Rocky with a more personal touch. Christian Bale is incredible, and probably one of the main reasons this movie is up for best picture. He reminds me a lot of Jess in Breaking Bad: the druggie you can't but love. The directing is incredible, giving it the North Eastern small town feel comparable to Good Will Hunting, and the documentary feeling it was striving to be. Definitely a movie worth seeing.

qft. was an absolutely amazing film. if you've seen swan lake and know the story well it is incredible to see what aronofsky transformed the story into and how much he made it a completely new and original thought ripe with allegory and meaning that was completely absent in the original. a masterpiece of adaptation to script and very well shot and directed.

Just watched "There Will Be Blood" this weekend.  That flick is pretty awesome.  Daniel Day Lewis is incredible.

I watched"The Fan" with Patton Oswald last Thursday, it was ok.   I'm glad it didn't go where I thought it was going to go.

Also watched "The King's Speech" this weekend.  It was a good movie, but not great IMHO.  Geoffrey Rush was very good, HBC was so-so, and Colin Firth was good.  I will have to watch the Social Network soon I think.

Agree on King's Speech.

The Social Network was fantastic.  A very cool story and Eisenberg nailed it.

I had heard that was one of the locations.  Assumed it probably wasn't your office.

I wouldn't recommend it.  Affleck is pretty annoying with his narration and oversized cowboy hat.  Unless you're into seeing women getting destroyed, it's a pretty lame movie.

Agreed. I probably laughed just as much as I did during the first one, but the first one was such a new concept that it was special. Since the idea isn't new anymore, it doesn't seem as good as a movie.

Also, [spoiler]it was pretty obvious that the entire movie was written just to expand Allen's character. The cool thing about the first one is that they left you begging for more. This one gives you way too much and then some. [/spoiler]

I was not a huge fan of Restrepo....very typical imbedded stuff...very sad to say but i've become somewhat immune to the horrors of war.  we are so inundated with videos and images of dead people and body parts that it callouses me.  i hate that for those that are in it every day, they deserve better.

the best movies on my list are Anvil and American Movie...both are absolute joys to watch.  Man on Wire is also an excellent movie.  I just watched Talhotblond and while it is an incredible story, as a movie it leaves something to be desired.

Watched Wet Hot American Summer the other day.  Pretty low budget movie with Brad Cooper, Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Michael Ian Black, and Elizabeth Banks.

Very "out there" as a comedy, but I liked it.
*Poetwarrior found this "movie" uninspiring.

I haven't seen Super 8. X-Men has a lot of backstory/character development, but there is a satisfying finale. There is probably more crap blown up in The Green Lantern than Super 8 and X-Men, but that movie looks pretty bad.

Just got out of Mr. Popper's Penguins. 

Went with three other people.  The other guy I was with loved the penguin pooping parts of the movie.  Both girls seemed to like the baby penguin parts of the movie.

Overall, I would say that it's going to get some Oscar attention in the category of movies with penguins.

I recommend you seek it out when it comes to a town near you.

I haven't seen SPVW, but I hear it's similar to Kick-Ass, and everyone I've talked pretty much chose a side, Kick-Ass or SPVW.

Well, I love Kick-Ass so much that I know I don't need to see SPVW. I'm so far onboard the Kick-Ass bandwagon that I'm driving it.

i'm usually the one playing devil's advocate when it comes to movies but i watched that with ms tobias the other day and we almost left.  if it weren't for emma stone's character we probably would have.

Well, I'm pretty easy to please, so take all of my reviews with a fwiw. I thought it was a well written movie, though it would have been much better with somebody other than Steve Carrell. Everyone else was pretty good.

Vernon, Florida.

On my list. Worth it?

I have no idea if you would like it.  It seems like he may be making fun of old rural people with the movie.  But he may jus be allowing people to perceive what they will.  Errol is not big on inserting his commentary in his docs.

Please watch it and tell me your feelings about it.  It is rather short, and hearing your thoughts would better inform any future recommendos I may make.

Also: watch the coal mining doc Harlan Co.

Mark your calendars and we'll all meet up here to discuss.
(http://blogs.orlandoweekly.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/treeoflifeposter.jpg)

This will receive a wide release on July 8th, so only another week or so! But if you live in Fredonia, Cimarron, Atwood, Sabetha, Waldo, Seneca, Leoti, Pittsburg, Larned, or Lyons you may be out of luck and need to visit a larger town.

I recommend you seek it out when it comes to a town near you.

We can wait until everyone has seen it for a discussion.

poetwarrior, i went and saw this tonight and absolutely loved it.  it was a lot to take in for the uninitiated though and i kinda want to go back again and watch it.  thoughts?

p.s. -  this film is incredibly beautiful and ugly, just like life.  mostly beautiful though.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1530509/plotsummary (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1530509/plotsummary)

Quote
The story of a man who becomes sexually obsessed with a DVD recording of the first film in the series, The Human Centipede, and uses sandpaper to pleasure himself whilst watching the film. He decides to create a "human centipede" of his own, this time comprised of twelve victims as opposed to the first film's three. He uses his human centipede to his own sexual delight, taking sexual pleasure in watching the victims of the centipede defecate in each other's mouths, and using barbed wire wrapped around around his penis to rape the woman at the end of the centipede.

Isn't it amazing when you watch a movie made more than 5-10 years ago and it doesn't suck? Just rewatched The Man Who Would be King for the first time since I was a kid. Still great. Would be a good remake, expect they'd probably put Nicolas Cage in it.

Anybody seen The girl with dragon tattoo yet? Wife wants to see this but I am very :dubious: as she is a twi-tard and read all these books too.

movie was pretty well done.  could've just been my hangover, but i think it might be confusing for the casual viewer who hasn't read the books - the pace seemed (necessarily) quick to me and might be hard to follow.

i didn't really find it any better or worse than the swedish version.  salander in this one fit more with the vision i had of her than in the swedish version.  skarsgard as martin vanger was basically perfect imo.

Do not understand the Hugo love. Cool visuals, solid acting, etc. But pretty forgettable story.

yep.  Scorcese loves the crap out of the old silent films and wanted you to know about it.

Tale of Two Cities (1958)

What a story.  Old Sydney is probably my favorite character in any piece of literature.

Isn't it amazing when you watch a movie made more than 5-10 years ago and it doesn't suck? Just rewatched The Man Who Would be King for the first time since I was a kid. Still great. Would be a good remake, expect they'd probably put Nicolas Cage in it.

Same with me rewatching Big Trouble in Little China on netflix.  Still love that movie a whole bunch and now can appreciate the more adult stuff.  Nic Cage would make a great David Lo Pan.

Me and my dad had our annual Christmas screening of Die Hard on Sunday.  Thankfully he has Netflix because apparently all of the channels available on DirecTV were dumbasses and didn't show it.  The thing I took away from this year's viewing is that Argyle the limo driver probably deserves a little more credit for his actions while trapped down in the parking garage.  Just my IMO.

I'm not sure why I always feel the need to compare the two, probably because they are both about magicians and they came out around the same time.

I watch "Fast Times At Ridgemont High" at least once a day.  Best movie ever, no use straying away and being disappointed.

Spicoli is the best character ever conceived.  Phoebe Cates, well duh.  Nic Cage as a bit player, dude was fugly back then even.

Some of the movies on RedTube are pretty good but my Commodore 64 locks up whenever I hit a hotlink.

Didn't care much for the story. My wife grew up on Tintin though and assured me this was just how the whole tintin thing goes. She really liked it btw.

Red Dawn remake coming out in November.

The original premise was the Chinese invading the USA after we miss a couple of Debt payments but after MGM went bankrupt Sony took over production. They didnt want to piss China off(China threatened to cut off sony's access to the 5th largest box office market) so they changed it to NK invading the USA and CGI'd the red stars into Korean Symbols.

good movie iirc.

just watched spiderhole.  absolutely terrible and featured a total of two spiders - though upon further research, spiderhole must be some junction city/vietnam term that was lost upon me until i cared enough to look it up myself

Which one to see, if you had to choose between these two...BUT, knowing that I think Tom Cruise is kinda creepy with his Scientology stuff and I loved the last Sherlock Holmes.

Mission Impossible ghost thingy

OR

latest Sherlock Holmes.

Just saw Mission Impossible, I give a solid 7.9/10 - IF you take it for what it is. Do not expect technology that exists. Haven't seen the latest Sherlock but I really enjoyed the first one.

Rise of Planet of the Apes. Surprisingly good.

Star Wars I to III on Blu Ray. These movies actually get worse with repeated viewings. I'm not even a huge fan, but it pisses me off how somebody could butcher a cool concept so badly. You've got everything going for you - cool Star Wars stuff like light sabers and crap, great actors (except for a horribly miscast young Anakin), unlimited money and production value - but without a good story or dialogue, its just steaming pile of dog crap. Contrast with Rise of Planet of the Apes. Cheesy concept, but an entertaining, well crafted story, and it ends up being a good movie. What a shock.

Cowboys v Aliens. See above. Great actors, great effects, stupid story = crap movie.

Half of Black Swan. Gave up. This movie is boring and disgusting. Just don't want to watch some crazy chick masturbate, get raped, and cut herself, even if it is Natalie Portman.

Speaking of Ryan Gosling--Crazy, Stupid Love was fairly entertaining.  He's money.  If you want a RomCom you can tolerate, men, this is pretty good.

Saw Super 8 and enjoyed it as well. The first half was more compelling than the monster/chase in the second half, but that's JJ Abrams. I was on the tail end of the Super 8 craze of the late 70s--had a friend try to make a monster movie with one of those cameras. It's too bad today's youth will never know anything about film.  People seem to love that instagram, though.

Descendants is one of the first Oscar Nominees I've seen. It's sad, but not depressing. Hawaii looks great and George Clooney is :love:  It's not as good as Sideways, but it's worth seeing in a theater.

Saw Super 8 and enjoyed it as well. The first half was more compelling than the monster/chase in the second half, but that's JJ Abrams. I was on the tail end of the Super 8 craze of the late 70s--had a friend try to make a monster movie with one of those cameras. It's too bad today's youth will never know anything about film.  People seem to love that instagram, though.

Descendants is one of the first Oscar Nominees I've seen. It's sad, but not depressing. Hawaii looks great and George Clooney is :love:  It's not as good as Sideways, but it's worth seeing in a theater.


Crazy, Stupid, Love surprised me by how much I actually liked it.  Gosling was awesome in it.

Just saw Take Shelter with Michael shannon, and it was really really good.  A really slow build, but it seemed like my heart was pumping fast the whole time, which is a compliment for a character driven drama.  Id say it was the best movie I've seen since black swan came out, def recommend.

just watched it. really great. so conflicted about the ending though. i mean i hated it at first but now i think i maybe don't mind it. i dunno. maybe watch it again or something.

Saw it this weekend.  Very enjoyable from a sit in a chair, don't think about anything & be entertained type of movie.  Laughed quite hard several times. Wife and I sat next to two women probably in their 70-80's and there was several times they were laughing harder than we were.   It was truly fun for all ages.

But anyway, I jumped on this thread to suggest "The Wild & Wonderful Whites"   Someone else that saw this please talk to me about it.   Good gravy that was weird.

Lots of chasing, bullet flying and shoot 'em ups. Ryan Reynolds and Denzel both had great characters. The plot was fairly simple, but the actors made it enjoyable.

The book is good.  Simplistic, and not with requisite level of "visceral, but the ladies love it" type stuff that I usually read, but it's good (not finished yet)...I will see the movie.


I watched Girl with the Dragon Tattoo last night.  Was pretty good.  If they hadn't made the sex (and sexual violence) scenes graphic, I would have said it was not worth watching.  But, they did, and that was compelling stuff.

Planning on watching Tinker Taylor tonight.  This past Tuesday had a couple of good releases.

I have a theory about crying.  If you haven't done it in awhile, its hard to.  But if you do it once, you have the potential to start crying a lot more.  Know this girl who has dated and broken up with a couple guys.  Guys that pretty much didn't cry.  Then she would dump them and they would cry over pretty much nothing after that.

I cry easily at movies and then I cry later when I hear the song that was playing in the part of the movie that made me cry. Even my "band of teen vampire movie loving retards" makes fun of me.

I didn't get a chance to cry at the A&M game because I was forced to stay, freezing, in the parking lot during the 4 OTs.

I don't know what it is, I guess.  Just seeing everybody being completely full of bliss in complete unison is pretty neat.  You hardly ever get to see people so happy all at the same time.  It's a pretty unique phenomenon, really, and I love it.  Everybody forgets about their worries, just for a short spell.  When you pause and recognize it in the moment (which I always try to do) it's hard not to be a little overcome by emotion.

Watched it last night.  Some cheap laughs, definitely, but the cast is insane.  Norm Macdonald, Artie Lange, Chevy Chase, Chris Farley, Shooter Mcgavin.  Norm's delivery get's me every time.

Hunger Games was pretty good, especially Seneca Crane's beard.

i enjoyed this movie as well.

that seneca guy tho was the creepy guy from american beauty (my fav movie all time btw).

anyway, a guy i went to hs with roomed with that guy's brother at washburn.  he visted his brother a lot i guess, but i never got a chance to meet him, kinda sad about that.

anyway, the brother was a churchy youth minister or something, and my friend described his room as smelling of "stale cum".  pretty disgusting.

even I cry at movies and I'm an emotionless robot. never cried during a ksu football win. Guess I'm leaving, you guys.

I never really cry, but if a dog dies in a movie my eyes get moister.

I only cry after KSU loses. Why would you cry after a win?
I don't know what it is, I guess.  Just seeing everybody being completely full of bliss in complete unison is pretty neat.  You hardly ever get to see people so happy all at the same time.  It's a pretty unique phenomenon, really, and I love it.  Everybody forgets about their worries, just for a short spell.  When you pause and recognize it in the moment (which I always try to do) it's hard not to be a little overcome by emotion. 

It's kind of going along the same line as what Fatty was talking about in my sig.

That's true, but unless The Real Housewives has a special feature where somebody's daughter disappears, one of the housewives is a mass murderer, and a goth chick is hired to solve the mystery, it just won't be the same experience.

Rotten Tomatoes agrees with you. Highest rated movie of 2012. It's just so weird, I don't know how to rate it. I think it will be one of those movies that even though it doesn't win a single award, for years to come people will tell their friends, "You never saw Cabin in the Woods!?! We're watching it tonight, no excuses." That's kind of what I think Inception will be.

I liked it. But only because of what I perceive as the director making a joke of his audience with the tangent he takes them on. Would not watch again, but liked because of the aforementioned. I also tend to like weird movies.

I thought it was very good, despite the horrible, horrible plot.

The entire first half of the movie was just a ridiculous bunch of crap.  Then, in the second half of the movie they kinda attempt to salvage the plot. 


The effects outweigh the ass rape of a plot that the put together.

I agree for the most part. Bad story and acting, but what's your problem with CGI? If it makes the movie look better then I'm all for it. I don't know why everyone is salivating over the movie, though. Does not compare with the Dark Knight IMO.

I think I notice cgi because of bad movies.  Watchmen and sin city have a ton of cgi too, but it doesn't feel cheap and cheesy, it just feels like an addition to the movie.  David fincher uses way more cgi than anyone realizes because it blends into the movie.

Tree of Life

Really wanted to see it, especially since my friend poetwarrior held it in such high regard.  I learned that sometimes movies, films, works of poetry, pieces of art, whatever, can get their head so far up their asses that it forgets where it is and can't see or explain anything.

Why not show dinosaurs for 20 minutes?

Great point!!!

This wasn't a movie.  I learned that some people call it "impressionistic."  Well, "impressionistic" is a nice way of saying that the movie doesn't make any sense at all, and will spend upwards of 2 and a half hours telling some kind of coming of age story about a character you have no reason to give a crap about.

Two thumbs down!

Tree of Life was weird, no doubt.  I enjoyed it though.  I enjoyed it for the fact that it was a movie(sort of??) that begs the viewer to ask the question, "why?"  Why is my time significant? Why am I here?  It makes the viewer ponder how lucky they are, for the fleeting chance of life, even if being lucky means you must realize how insignificant your life really is in the grand scheme of things that were, are, and are to come.
Title: Re: Recent motion picture viewing - Add your own!

And see I get the idea.  I understand that you're not supposed to "understand  it" and that it's supposed to help you become introspective.  But the thing is, I reject that as art. 

For example, if I go to an art gallery and see a pile of feces on a canvas, I'm going to be mortified and offended, and that won't change when the pretentious artist comes up to me and says "I know it's strange, but what does it say about human nature?"  If I go to a 2 and a half hour movie with a disjointed storyline, characters I hardly know anything about, and just absurd (artistic?) cinematography, I'm not going to call it art, I'm going to call it a waste of my time.

Apparently the director's cut is 6 hours.  6 hours.  If that isn't an example of directorial masturbation, well, I don't know what is.

Having said that, I'm glad you guys liked it.

A few things.

I can respect that someone wouldn't enjoy the slow pace, structure or tone conveyed by the form employed. It's not for everyone and it's something you must become accustomed to or be predisposed to. However, while some may find it distracting and confusing, others may see it as the near perfection of an art form, as I do.

Critiques regarding the weirdness or saying that it cannot be understood and that it is not intended to be understood are incorrect. I believe I correctly understand it. In general, it's about a family (especially a son, mother and father) and their place in the cosmos (which is not insignificant) and in relation to God, as well as a Christian understanding of nature vs. grace. I think that every frame intentionally supports these purposes, using additional material (light, sin, death, etc.) for clarity. A background with these subjects can help. I've seen it several times, but did not need to to form a basic understanding of what is occurring.

I cared for the characters immediately, I saw myself in them.

Feces on a table is not valid. The Tree of Life uses a form and means of expression that are valid, without pretension. And a director's cut does not officially exist and probably never will. If it ever does, it will be because footage was shot that would further aid the vision of the director.

Coriolanus?

Shame?

I think they could have gotten rid of the entire french animal cop part, and not have missed a beat...detracted from the movie, IMO.



Here's what I like, that one penguin going around talking like Captain Kirk and monkeys doing awesome crap.  Give me more of both of those.  Also, less hippo...she is terrible, just awful.

jesus christ you just rough ridin' nailed it. the only good french animal cop part was when she broke out of the jail and they were all like "well obviously it's the old hidden tunnel behind the poster bit...".

It was supposed to be a straight prequel, but there are a few things that don't exactly make sense. For instance, Alien takes place in 2031, and Prometheus takes place in 2093. But besides that, it's pretty much a prequel.

No idea. All I'm saying is I watched this movie a couple days ago, saw that, and assumed it was the year. It seemed like something they would establish early in the film, and that scene is at the 8:52 mark, so I figured it would make sense. I'm glad someone corrected me because it makes a lot more sense.

Oh yeah.  The phelps one definitely.  I know what you're talking about when you say they can really suck you in.

Last night, I couldn't sleep and watched both Phelps ones, one about white-supremacists in california, one about a prison, and one about las vegas high rollers.

the grey- i mean really pretty good. really liked the last half. somewhat bored w/ the first, but one was needed for the other. the ending oh man. great last 20 min.

prometheus- saw this in 3d imax. that made it great. would it have been even good at seth childs cinema in the reg vision. idk. idk.

21 jumpstreet- very enjoyable. would prob never watch again, but i enjoyed it. again...if that's what you're looking for.

Also, I like 21 Jump Street as well.  Gratuitous, but fun.

All motion pictures should be seen on a big screen with good sound. It helps them. Some have big screens in their homes, with good sound.

There are a lot of visual details in the motion pictures of Moonrise Kingdom that would not be seen, at all, on a small screen.

I will be attending the Batman trilogy marathon at the Ward Parkway AMC on the 19th, with Batman Begins starting at 6 pm finishing with the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises at midnight.

It wasn't even that the movie's bad.  It's just too long and didn't engage me enough.  My recollection actually is that it's better than Dark Knight.  We'll see.

Never Let Me Go

Directed by the guy who directed One Hour Photo.  It has new Spiderman guy, Kiera Knightly, and girl from Drive.  Set in a society that raises test tube babies to be harvested for their organs in their young-adulthood it's sort of a sci-fi flick that follows the aforementioned three around. 

It is terribly tragic, but it was really good.  What they were getting at was beautiful.   

I'd give it ever recommendation i can.

Haha, that's right. I watched that movie like 10 times when I was a kid. Sadly, parents today don't find the movie appropriate for their sheltered kids.

THIS MOVIE HAS PROBLEMS YOU NEVER WANT TO ENCOUNTER
THIS IS A HORRIBLE MOVIE! Very inappropriate scenes and talk. Women are used as sex objects, and the main character watches a show dedicated to just that. One scene even includes the monster peeing in a bottle of apple juice as a prank (from the back side though). Bad language is used constantly throughout the movie. This includes p***, b*****, d***, s***, and others. Violent character RIPS KID'S HEAD OFF, after torturing him! Disturbing, violent, crude, inappropriate! Note to parents: Don't ever let your kids see this movie! KEEP THEIR MINDS SAFE. Don't let this horror into them. IT IS JUST COMPLETELY TERRIBLE STUFF!

Is it all it's cracked up to be?  Usually I follow Rotten Tomatoes (public, not critics) and they are usually on and they gave it good ratings.

Maybe I just keep thinking it's going to be like Super 8.

No, hopefully this isn't a spoiler because it was shown in the preview, but it shows someone struggling with what to do with super powers. And learning how to use them and stuff. I think both of these things are really interesting and haven't been touched on by very many movies.

I had time today, and I went to see it with one of my good friends, Jakesie60 (not actually his name in real life). 

That period of time where the two leads had exactly what they wanted really stuck with me.  What an era.  I bet the adult versions of themselves look back on that time fondly.  Good job, Wes!

Safe House is very meh. I couldn't really get into it, and there are a few obvious plot twists that made the climax pretty boring.

Oh, you know, that movie where no one likes Denzel Washington but he turns out to be morally sound and awesome?

I watched Moonrise Kingdom with Stevesie the other day.

We were talking after the movie ended, and I told him that I really like how the kids speak so matter of factly and sternly and in the manner adults would speak, but most of what they say is childish and cute.  I really liked it.  Edward Norton was pretty funny in a Wes Anderson way.  Like PW said, go see it if you have time.

I also watched Stranger than Fiction.

I liked it.  I didn't know that Dustin Hoffman was in it.  I love Dustin Hoffman - especially in Hook!

Saw "Moonrise Kingdom" last night.  It was delightful.  A little bizarre in a "typical Bill Murray movie" kind of way, but otherwise very enjoyable and fun.  Anybody else see it yet?

Very good film, and very typical of a Wes film. Meticulous art direction and dry, witty, humor.

Stranger than Fiction may be my favorite Will Farrell movie.  For someone who was in high school during his prime comedy years, I think that is probably pretty strange.  Dustin Hoffman is great.

Yeah, she might not be super-hot for a movie star, but ugly is a ridiculous statement.  95% of the posters on this board would be ecstatic to hook up with a girl that looks like her.  Including you, BTKKK Charlie Manson.

i spent all day at work today reading this entire thread. i wouldn't have spent it any other way. i'd just like to touch quickly on my most memorable movie viewings of this past semester or two.

i loved: midnight in paris, hugo, crazy stupid love, the hunger games, my week with marilyn, 50/50
i hated and just want to forget: the vow, twilight: breaking dawn (just the worst)

also, i had very low expectations for 'in time', but found myself surprisingly intrigued the entire way through. i thought the concept was awesome, and yes maybe they could've done a little more with it, but overall i was pleased.

i saw 'another earth' and really liked it. another movie with a fantastic concept. at first i hated the ending, but then after a lot of deep thought, i just loved it. after my introspection, the ending felt so right.

and finally, poet warrior, i have indeed seen 'spirit of the beehive', it was probably about 3 years ago. thought you might enjoy that a third person on the board has seen it. the symbolism of the film is just wonderful--a very haunting story connecting to a horrible period in spain's history. however, as far as enjoyability and entertainment value, that movie's completely awful.

i watched a movie in my dream last night, thought about posting the name of it in this thread, and then realized, while still in my dream, that it wasn't a real movie and i was dreaming.


does this belong in last night's dream thread, or recent motion picture viewing thread?
I think that belongs in the "I made an appointment to see my shrink because....." thread.

Saw lawless tonight, it was alright.   Maybe 7/10.  Kinda slow at times. Tom hardy is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors though.

Have you seen RocknRolla?

Yes.

i thought i'd watch 'salmon fishing in the yemen', because i really like emily blunt and ewan mcgregor. i should've expected it, but it was pretty boring. for the first hour & thirty minutes all they did was hang out in the yemen and do pretty much nothing. then they packed the last 20 minutes with all kinds of emotional stuff. it wasn't great, just okay.

I didn't even know Ball Jars were a thing until all this.  Went to the store looking for something like that and found those but in too small a size.  I had to have "Ball" brand jars.  You can only order them in paks of 12.  So, I've still got 10 unused ball jars.  I just gave one to a girl at the office that may be getting a cyst removed.

It wasn't easy.  Surgery was at one of the Via Christis so you're dealing with pseudo-nuns at the front desk.  I explained I was interested in getting it back if they were done testing or whatever, and I guess nobody ever asks.  Eventually they connected me to a dude in the lab who said he could get it back to me.  I go up there and he'd handwritten a release on a blank piece of paper and then gave it to me in this knockoff tupperware thing filled with ball and formaldehyde inside a walmart bag.  I waved to the nuns as I walked out with it, but was scared to mess with it until a buddy who was a doctor came to town with a bunch more formaldehyde and the willingness to help.  We got drunk and tried to put in a cookie jar that we realized was way to big.  Then he used a tootsie roll pop stick to wedge it into the formaldehyde tubes he brought.  Next morning, I learned of the ball jars and had them off amazon later in the week.

On some recent trans-pacific flights, I watched the following motion pictures, in order from best to worst:

1) Safety Not Guaranteed - pretty funny, kind of sweet
2) Five Year Engagement - OK for a rom-com, lots of f-bombs and dick jokes
3) Men in Black III - lots of action
4) The first 15 minutes of What to Expect When You're expecting (it was so awful I had to turn it off)
5) Lola Versus - worst movie evar.

Sleepless in Seattle - 2nd time watching it, my god what a classic. "Have you ever seen Fatal Attraction?" "No you wouldn't let me" "Well I saw it and it SCARED THE crap OUT OF ME!"

Watchmen director's cut - is there a cooler intro to a movie than "Unforgettable" followed by "The times they are a-changing" ? Answer: absolutely not.

pretty heavy on the dialouge and story. 2 chase scenes, and around 4 fight/battle scenes, IIRC. would probably say around 6 explosions? lot of deaths though. a guy gets eaten by a lizard.

Breaking Dawn 2 was surprisingly terrible.  I made my GF watch horror movies she didn't want to see in exchange for seeing Breaking Dawn with her.  I laughed at how dumb it was and ruined it for most the theater.  I know terrible movies making money isn't uncommon, but holy crap.

No. Pissed off my GF when I would say things like "So the werewolf is a pedophile?" and apparently didn't know what was going on.

Really not worthy of deeper analysis. BUT to make a short story longer -- acting was wooden and horrid. Dialogue was really, really awful. But I liked the music and they managed to make Kristen Stewart look gorgeous, so some real Oscar worthy make-up.

I'm not embarrassed to admit that I adored the first book. #TeamEdward

You forgot to mention the plot holes.
Although Kristen Stewart didn't cross her eyes awkwardly as much in this one.

Lincoln. 

Basically 3 hours of DDL acting.  Does an incredible job.  Should win an Oscar.  probably will. 

Story was good.  Never knew the theory that Lincoln intentionally delayed peace negotiations to ensure passage of the 13th Amendment.  i.e. many supported abolition if it meant the war would end, not out of morality.  Hence, if the war was already over before the House voted on the Amendment, not enough people would support abolition. 

good movie.  a little slow.  a little long.  again, basically DDL just doing incredible acting for 3 hours.

DDL as a borderline psychopathic dick (Bill Cutting and Daniel Plainview  :love: :excited:)?  Sign me up.  DDL as a well-known historical figure not considered to be a dick or a borderline psychopath?  No, no thanks.  This is where I stand on this issue.  That is not to say I don't, or wouldn't, enjoy DDL as a non-borderline psychopathic dick, but this isn't that role.

ya i agree with mr bread on this one.  hey i'm not saying DDL can't do whatever he wants, because he can.  i don't have enough hollywood pull to dictate the dude's roles.  just seems kind of creepy that he dressed up as abe lincoln and did some biographical piece on a dude we all think is pretty weird.

hey DDL, you didn't free the slaves.  lincoln did.  although in today's world with the internet, history can change just by swapping out a hard drive in your cpu.  in 200 years we'll all be reading about the slaves and the declaration of independance and thinking DDL wrote it.

Did you make it through?  Horrid movie, just terrible.   

Finally caught Bond tonight, last night in the IMAX before they make room for the new Hobbit movie.  Hobbits everywhere waiting in line for the midnight showing when I showed up at 7:30.  Bond was great.  I loved it.  Also loved that I did very little research on it before hand.  Javier Bardem stepping in as the villain was an awesome surprise. 

Great times.
