The Limey

Liked that the last time I saw it.

5 years ago. I'd like to see it again.

Went to Prince of Persia with the lady, and it wasn't bad. Pretty dumb-entertaining flick for the summer. So yeah, wont give you a broner, but you'll enjoy it.

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.

Adaptation
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0268126/
Semi-original. Confused. Nic Cage is good. Nobody likes Meryl Streep.

The Matrix is superior in every way. Slightly enjoyed watching it.

Probably my least favorite of Charlie Kauffman's.  Love Chris Cooper though

First time I had watched it since theater. Paul Dano was really robbed of an Oscar nom.

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.

Here's everything you need to know in one link:

Probably none of you here have seen more than a third of these.

Good, seems it should have felt more dramatic.

I could have done w/o trying to make the courtroom exit dramatic.

I hate old Hollywood.

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.

In general, it's a failure. It did, for me, shed some light on retardation.

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!

f&f is a cinematic masterpiece. the godfather is lucky to even be talked about in the same sentence. i thought the list you had was comprehensive. nvm my previous statement of 'ridic'ness.
