Post by: Hasith on May 27, 2008, 10:22:34 AM

twilight *censored*ing sucked imo, poorly written romance scenes and a *censored*ty way to represent vampires. most girls found it good cuz they liked edward cullen. last movie i watched was partly the curious case of benjamin button (walked out on it) the last one i fully watched was marley and me it was funny alittle weird in parts, and owen wilson is starting to look like a skull

why walk out on BB i heard it was great? Last movie i saw was Valkyrie. Great movie. only thing i didnt like was that, and im not joking, only one person in that movie had a German accent. everyone else was american, english, or french.

I watched twilight, and it... was good, but not nearly as good as everone says.
I also hate it because now everyone loves my favourite band, but not for the right reasonand my last one was bedtime stories with adam sandler

Btw, I don't think you can say something was badly written when you say things like "cuz".
And vampires are not set to be like dracula.
But anyways I suppose opinions differ.
And I agree with kazbat, it's too hyped up to meet anyones expectations!

last movie i watched was Alien Apocalypse staring Bruce Campbell. kinda random movie about these grasshopper alien things invading earth to take all of our wood cause its like gold to them. Campbell was an astronaut on a 40 year mission where he spent most of the time in stasis when the aliens attacked. so but when he got back he was enslaved at a saw mill. eventually he led a revolt and kill like 100 of these things in like 10 minutes along with the help of the entire US congress.

lol... agreed...    let's just put it this way.. the film lasted for 84 minutes thats not even an hour and a half....  it's like they made the movie for infants... the stunts the fights were too short... omg goku never transforms on an eclipse idiots!!!!   and when he did transform he looked like a werewolf
also if goku is only 18 how could he have destroyed the earth 2000 years ago...

You should watch my full review on it on www.youtube.com/aesthricous

There were 100's of flaws in the film and why the hell would a Saiyan want to be ruled over by a Namek?

That would never happen.

I just finished watching The Machine Girl. Now, THAT'S entertainment! :-) You'll laugh, you'll cry... you'll laugh some more. Just kidding. It's a buckets (in this case more like 55 gallon drums) of blood revenge movie like only the Japanese can make. You can find the trailer on youtube. I didn't want to post it because, even though it's tame compared to the actual movie, even the trailer would be rated R in the U.S. It's a great, campy movie though, if you like slasher movies, you'll love it.  Freddy and Jason got nothing on this little girl... then again, they didn't have a gatling gun for a left arm.

I enjoyed the movie but find it difficult to love it. >.< Like you said, it's entertainment though.

The last movie I just finished an hour ago was Silence of the Lambs which was immediately after Harry Potter movies 3 and 4. Strangely enough, I'm feeling hungry now...

That won't work for me, i'm on my 6th month and counting for my holiday... But i understand what you mean.


The latest movie i've watched is now definately Kick Ass, now this movie is something else. I'm still not sure what exact genre it is. Its really something else. Its a tad offensive, since a little girl swears like an adult and murders people, but i must say it has an interesting pitch, and interesting idea. I must say, i really enjoyed it

... am i messed up?

Who else has watched it?

Loved Kick ass! I really want to read the comic, but I heard the movie was actually better.

Kick-Ass was awesome, loved the double naginata the little girl used XD


Also, though way overdone red mist had an awesome mustang

I think i know why. Its a lot more vulgar than the movie. You should check out the comic wikipedia page. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kick-Ass_(comics)

See how the villain was killed in this one.


I loved the playlist for the action scenes.

WHAT? your joking! District 9 was awesome! It completely tricked me of its simplicity, and besides, even if i found it bad in story i'd still love it, since it was made by people planning to film Halo. District 9 was awesome!

Plus, there was a Malawian in it who spoke Chichewa. (One of the gangsters) That was really funny to see.

Saw Inception...
Didn't really like it despite what anyone says. :/
Thought the concept was alright though not entirely original.. and could have been executed way better.
Didn't like the style of it at all.

EDIT: District 9, however, is one of my favourite movies of all time. >: O *has a big urge to watch it again* I freakin' love that movie.
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: Tostificer on August 09, 2010, 04:11:29 PM
Seriously? I disagree with both statements you just made. I loved Inception (just saw it today, stupid Europe). And I hated district nine. I dunno if it was me, but all I saw were aliens, people exploding and a lot of "pew pew" and "*censored* *censored*!"
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: SaiHawkeye on August 09, 2010, 04:15:40 PM
I disliked District 9 as well. The concept was awesome and I loved many of the strange events that occurred. The way the movie was shot was also interesting. My beef with it is that, although it was quite entertaining, I felt like I wasted part of my life watching it.

Today, I watched 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later, and Shaun of the Dead. I'm about to pop in Dawn of the Dead after a power nap.

dude. what? its based on the first couple minutes of fantasia.
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: Tostificer on August 09, 2010, 05:30:52 PM
What was a 'Sorcerer's apprentice' advertisement doing in a MTG booster, then? They only promote their own stuff there. Plus that it said "by Wizards of the Coast" (MTG creators), and the guy at the shop told me it was a movie about MTG...

See how I got to that conclusion? Plus that the aspects (the genre, for God's sake) are very similar (magicians?).

@Sai- Still wondering how District 9 was a waste of time even though you enjoyed it. :P

@Tosti- Maybe you don't have a deeper appreciation for movies? I've a movie nerd so I look at stuff most people that watch movies don't look at. I love the way it tied together and the way it was directed... Almost feels like you just saw the outer-most layer of the movie. And only a few parts. Don't understand how you could get that kind of an impression of District 9.
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: Tostificer on August 09, 2010, 06:00:48 PM
Maybe it was the atmosphere. I'll buy the DVD and see it again.
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: Account Disabled on August 09, 2010, 06:01:54 PM
Is District 9 appropriate for children? If not I think I know what movie it is and I'd rather not watch it cause of my weak stomach.

I wanted to watch Sorcerer's Apprentice when I saw it on a commercial a while back now, and I'm pretty sure Coryn is right since I saw some review on it saying it was based off of Fantasia. Anywho, where can I find it streaming? :laughing11: Jk, the cyber police may back trace me, I didn't say that.
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: Coryn on August 09, 2010, 06:04:11 PM
people explode a lot so i would say no
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: Iceh on August 09, 2010, 06:07:37 PM
xD They don't explode THATTT much. There is definately a lot worse out there.
I think it's rated R18 in America and 14A in Canada.
Quite a difference. xD
I think weak stomach people could handle it.. You might feel a little sick.. but it's definately worth the story. It takes such a dramatic turn in the early middle half of it. So good. Wouldn't wanna spoil it. Basically, you'll end up contradicting yourself a lot. Your opinions will change a hella lot about stuff as you get to learn more and more stuff happens.
@tosti- Oh, the atmosphere? I hope that's it. Maybe you missed some of the story. I'd give it another try.
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: Account Disabled on August 09, 2010, 06:10:51 PM
I think I'll go with Sorcerer's Apprentice later on the internet somewhere before I watch a movie that has too much 'sploding humans. Last exploding human I saw was...don't wanna remember. I can't even deal with thrillers, to me a thriller is a horror and a horror is a disc like object to be destroyed.

It wasn't that bad, actually. Now my stomach is probably not as bad as yours (from what you said), but you could watch it. Just a few lasers making people explode, that's all.

Post by: Tostificer on August 11, 2010, 03:56:37 PM
Ok, I understand now what was up with that MTG thing in the Sorcerer's Apprentice.

Just saw the movie. Awesome special effects, but the story was kinda... Lame. You've got the basic bad guy, wanna destroy the world, there's the good guys, wanna protect the world, and they lived happily ever after.

Soo, MTG was just trying to promote themselves in the movie. There were several scenes with Magic: The Gathering advertisements in it, etc. The movie wasn't about it.

It's 2am so I figure I'll post random bits of unneeded info for people to be bothered by when they wake. I watched the Expendables yesterday, well two days ago, in it was Jet Li, and the other actors' names I don't really remember, but they were famous guys, oh and Arnold Schwarzenegger makes an appearance.

The movie was as a friend had said after we discussed it afterwards, "For stupid people." The jokes were pretty lame, explosions, no real story, knives and guns were about half the movie but if you're just looking to be entertained, I say go for it. The fight scenes weren't bad and it's pretty gruesome, which makes me wonder why kids were allowed there, especially the random 5 year old got up, the reason I suspected was that he went to the wrong movie, thought he'd watch Despicable Me, but no, he walks back in after. Anyways, not a bad movie and if anyone has read through all of this, ahahaha, this is just me typing to much to be a bother.

Post by: Fabiafidus on August 21, 2010, 04:01:43 PM
You shouldn't watch it, i could TELL you about the video and you would get the same experience as watching it ...





SPOILER ALERT!!! DO NOT READ

Sorry for bad english!!

Seriusly.  The video starts out as the game god of war .. but ...

First of all, the characters name haven't anything to do the with greek mythology.
Second of all, the characters was stone faced right from the start and doesn't even have a fight experience!!
He is a half god ... and the main characters, but the movie standed out so bad, that the BI characters made a better and more moral performence then the main characters..
Hades looked like *censored*. and was soposed to be the evil one.
Zeus looked like a power ranger.

In the movie they talk about "hades" and "kraken" but rarely of medusa.

here is the plot ..

Perseus was found floating in the sea picked up by a family .

he grew up in 5 seconds flash and they suddenly sailed near a cliff where some men broke the zeus stature declaring war against the gods. The stature falls in the water and his family dies.
Perseus was unable to save them and then he came to the surface again and saw hades slaughter the humans with a curse of some kind ...

Allright, for SOME REASON perseus decides to blame hades for his familis death, and then he gets picked up by spartans apparently..

Mean while hades tells zeus to fight against the humans to "learn them their place in the world" since zeus created mankind to prey at their god to feed their immortality. but hades makes zeus strike the humans by telling them that they will unleash kraken in 24 hours.

Hades then went down, slaughtered some people then telling perseus that kraken will be unleashed in 24 hours ...
While talking, hades now see that perseus was zeus' son...
then hades leaves (??? why???)

Okey, then some guards wants to take up the fight with the gods an perseus accepts the offer.
tada and they climb mount olympus.

Meanwhile hades goes to the underworld, sending a MORTAL orc likely enamy against perseus to kill him becuase hades knows that perseus will be able to take over olympus.

(??? hades? why didn't you kill him down there while he was unarmed???)

Up in the mountain, some silver hilt dropped from the heaven, and persueus picked it up, then it became a sword, one of the guards said it was a gift from the gods (allright?)
Then perseus says he didn't want it .. (???? WTF????). The guards and perseus gets ambushed by the orc likely creature and some died, one of the guards made the heroic strike and cut off the creatures arm, and the creature ran away.

They followed the creatures bleeding track, but then suddenly GIANT SCORPIONS APPEAIRD! :O
that was maybe the longest fighting scenes in this, and it wasn't even mandatory for the plot ...
anyways, a few guards dies, and yet again, THE SAME GUARDS MAKES THE HEROIC STRIKE TO KILL THEM, NOT the main character ...

fine, they then got saved after a few more scorpions appeird. By some zombie looking etheral guys, who contains magic .. they can't speak english so ofc one of the guards apparently talks their langauge (??? without even telling a story how he learned how to talk it???)

they wanted to beat the gods aswell.

Fine, they got allied and while they were riding they got a message from a girl who have granted eternal youth by the gods? who apparently have been following perseus all the way .. she said that kraken will unleash in 13 hours or so.

fine, they talk about how to defeat it.. OFC medusa! lets rip off her head he goes!

On the way they meet those 3 witches who could fortunate their fate .. wow they wanted to eat perseus and the others, then perseus took "their eyeball" and held it over a cliff. then perseus forced em to tell where medusa is found.
Then they fortunate perseus dies .. (?? wtf ..)
then they went to medusa's lair, and the rest of the guards were killed and perseus got her head.

He went out of the lair and the girl who have been following him all the got stabbed by the orc looking creature and dies (??? wasn't she soposed to be the girl-to-be-saved character in this???) apparently not, then they fight, and then perseus finally uses the god given sword which yieled enormeus power...
(???ok .. he could spare up to 20 human lives by using it against medus and the scorpions .. but nonono fair enough ...???)

He travelled to the city (i dont remember the name)
the BANG the giant sea creature named kraken appeird.
The some guy yelled "LETS SACRIFICE THE PRINCESS INSTEAD OF THIS TOWN!"

so they tied her up hanging in a rope for kraken to be eaten. (?? out of nowhere she seems like a main character ...???)

then kraken destroys some of the city here and there without touching the princess, (?? lol yellguy failed??)
Out of nowhere perseus jumped and took forth medusas head... BAM the big creature turned into stone and one of the tentacles landed on mr. yellguy. (YES!)

Kraken died and hades appeird (Muhaha!!)
"DIE PERSEUS!!" hades says
"Nope" replied perseus and took forth the godsword and it suddenly got blasted with lighting from heaven, then he used THUNDERSHOCK on hades and sent him to the underworld ..

anyways, the rope holding the princess broke and she fell into the water.

Perseus jumped in and saved the princess ..

The *censored*ing end ..



The plot is to be brainwasted on ..

Inception.

And it.
was.
AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

Definately one of the most useful 2 hours i've spent on... ahem... TV... >.> <.< >.>

The sci-fi is simply great and the director moved it along properly. And yes, the Effects were simply astounding. The best thing is i like that the viewer has to be able to think to grasp what's happening. I admit i missed one or two things but i've got em all in the end. And i'm rewatching it when i find the time.

Post by: Tostificer on December 25, 2010, 07:14:24 AM
Been watching some movies, let's see... I watched Transformers, Twilight and Zombieland. Here goes review.

Transformers: Not really interesting. I mean, it's an interesting movie, but that's it.

Twilight: I've seen this movie reluctantly. My friend got me to watch the thing (the first one), and I didn't hate it, but didn't like it either. It has a story, but a weak one at that. Pretty cool effects though, but I don't see why the stereotypical fangirl would like this movie apart from wanting to see Edward or something? I dunno.

Zombieland: This one was the 'crème de la crème'. I loved it, from beginning to the end. I could totally recognise myself in the main character, but what I loved most was Tallahassee, the guy in the kickass business. And business is good, as he said. He'd do anything for a twinkie even in times where zombies fill the streets, eating all the living flesh there is left. And I can't blame the guy.
Concluded, a very good movie. I want you all to see it. Now.

I've only recently actually started following the comic's storylines. Usually  i was running on hearsay and the occasional movie, so i know of the avengers but not so much. Soon though.

Watched Pirates of the Carribean today. The 3D effect isn't stunning, and I'd rather have seen it in 2D but apart from that...

EPIC

The best out of all four. The storyline is just awesome, it all comes together at the end. And above all, Penelope Cruz is hot, and Spanish. A good combo. Especially when you get what she yells in Spanish sometimes.

I agree with Toasty, The new pirates was truly amazing! Splendid and brilliant!

There were so many pirate cosplayers at the Theater! It was really fun, specially the amazing Jack Sparrow almost-perfect cosplay, the guy even talked and walked like Jack, he was so hilarious.

I wouldn't say that it's better than "At the world's end" but that's mainly to world's end's epic whirlpool battle.

On a side note... There will a second part, I stayed after the credits so I saw the little thingy xD.

I loved Pirates :stranger tides I loved the 3D, acting, story and the subplot story, and i agree with Tost Penelope was really good and hot in the movie she totally held her own against the great cast.

I hated TRON but thats just me what i liked about the movie the most was that the guy was hot thats it but again my opinion if any of you liked it dont let me ruin it for you.

its a remake of this old crappy vampire movie thats known to be funny cause its so bad...

the remake was suprisingly entertaining, they didnt take it seriously at all and had fun with all kinds of funny comebacks and references... example: the make fun of twilight, theres league of legends posters in one scene, music from the movie alien plays at one point

honestly it was pretty decent, take some friends though its good to laugh together :D

Especially awesome because it's based on a manga. I have it in my hard drive and i'll watch it later. Many of my friends didn't understand it though. It's not your cup of tea if your looking for intricate poetic stories. It's pretty much a lot of ass kicking (from what i gather) which i love.

Heard Super 8 is cool as well. Man i'd better watch more movies. End of the year and i've only watched two or three 2011 titles...

*face desk*

mark hamill played luke skywalker in the original star wars trilogy. after the first movie he was in an accident that messed up his face which the screen writers wrote off in the film as an animal attack. after star wars he found it incredibly hard to find work cause everyone just saw him as luke. so instead he made a killing as a badass voice actor. perhaps most famously he was the joker for many batmans. including the 90's cartoon and the recent arkem games.

Sorry Moose, but the "Secret of Arriety" is not anime-ish, it is a 100% pure japanese-made Studio Ghibli Film, it's just based in a western book.

/rant  lol xD sorry about that.

As far as the movie goes, I didn't watch it myself, my siblings loved it though. Besides it is STUDIO GHIBLI, that's like a warranty seal for quality.

Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: Monsterful on March 04, 2012, 05:06:05 AM
+1.

I just love Shaun of the dead so much... First, you guys all know that I'm a zombie addict, and I've seen so many movies and series and Shaun comes on top, British comedy + Zombies? Pure Gold, it's the only Zombie (live action at least) movie that I own.

The only thing that would surpass Shaun of the Dead is L4D, if it ever got a movie.

L4D is just that awesome xD. L4D>Resident Evil.
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: legomaestro on March 04, 2012, 07:09:18 AM
Yeah i support that actually. Haven't seen much of L4D but Resident fell out of the wagon for me. Not scary at all.

For me my all time favorite zombie movie is Zombieland. It was just so short and sweet.
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: Monsterful on March 04, 2012, 03:17:46 PM
Zombieland comes pretty close second, but falls short due to the cheesy way they handle the love sub-plot.
Besides Shaun of the Dead has British humour, BRITISH HUMOUR!

I saw some of the Blue Eyed Butcher a week ago or something. It was pretty psychotic. It was about a woman that was abused by her husband. She stabbed him 196 times or something because he drove her to insanity. It's a true story, too(shocks, apparently at least).

So I just watched the Avengers.

By Thor that movie is full of epicness. Holy friggin damn. Not satisfied with the ending though, especially Stark =_= But some pretty hilarious moments were involved.

And Cpt. America was just so... Sober. Was everyone like that back in the day?

that's just cap's character.

as for the ending i'm not sure why you feel unsatisfied. Canon was upheld. all the characters preformed to their classic roles. and even the new villain is perfect as far as canon is involved.

also got to love those joss whedon after credits

Stark coulda stayed in the other space thing. I mean he called his gf but didn't get her and everything... It would just have been a bit sadder and imo better if he didn't make it in time with the portal.

Trying to be very vague here for those who haven't seen it yet but yeah.

Put your fears to rest. This one is a lot more closer to the original story than the previous trilogy.
After all, you have Stan Lee as the Exec. producer, and his cameo on this one is the best so far!

Skyfall. Interesting movie story-wise, but it really, really didn't feel like a James Bond movie in the traditional sense.

In all seriousness (and those who have seen it will get this), I was waiting for Macaulay Culkin to start fighting against the villains during the big fight near the end.

I'm sorry to any Bond fans here, but I really hope the next one's better than this. I honestly had more fun playing Time Crisis 3 in the theater's lobby.

Watched the new Godzilla in 3D IMAX

Have no clue what I paid £12 for...

I recommend not to see it, it's a nice throwback to some of the old TV show for anyone who is older than me and was into that... but it had so little content and just felt like a 20 minute episode that had been drawn out by cutting away from all of the monster fight scenes until the very end, and focusing waaaaay too much on the poorer actors of the film.
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: 50 Words for Paipis on June 15, 2014, 10:41:14 AM
I liked Godzilla. I liked that it wasn't about fighting until the last stretch. The acting was generally okay. Bryan Cranston was so good that he almost hurt the movie by making the other actors look bad. I think it was more viscerally entertaining than narratively entertaining, though. The story was good, but the visuals and the music were better.
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: legomaestro on August 22, 2014, 09:06:17 AM
If Godzilla had some story going for it then more power to them. I'll watch it for the same reasons I watched Pacific Rim. I want to see behemoths fighting.

Just watched The Double. Weird movie, and I'm planning a weekend of watching some of the classics I really regret missing. The Godfather, Pulp Fiction, Blade Runner and Groundhog Day.

No... In fact all of Hollywood's attempts so far have been abismal at best... but now I have hope! I think technology is up to par now.

Announced have been:

Assassin's Creed
Uncharted
The last of us
Activision now have their own film studios so there may be a call of duty film

I think its looking good!
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: legomaestro on August 22, 2014, 03:56:16 PM
No hopes for Assassin's Creed. Uncharted seems like it could be a fun watch if they simply play it safe and give us what we expect. I expect critics to rip it up but really, I'll watch it for the adventure/action and simple plot.

Last of Us though. I've heard so many good things about the game itself, so I expect the movie should be rich in terms of story as well. Mediocrity will not be forgiven  on that one... I really want to play the game now.

Call of duty film... Let's not go there.

Please.

For the sake of world peace.
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: 50 Words for Paipis on August 22, 2014, 03:56:57 PM
One problem is that most game-based movies tend to look like games. The story is usually like a game too. "Get five light crystals" or something.

Those titles don't really give me much hope, either tbh. The only possible game-based film I think I would have expectations for is Metroid.

Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: legomaestro on August 22, 2014, 04:05:51 PM

By the way I keep on forgetting was the Mario movie actually good? I barely remember it but what I do remember makes me smile
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: 50 Words for Paipis on August 22, 2014, 04:10:40 PM
Depends on what you mean by good. It's actually horrible, but very entertaining.
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: NO1SY on August 22, 2014, 04:12:54 PM
Well they are all pretty early in development.

AC is being worked on by Michael Fassbender and I think will be about the first game. I like him but I dont really see him as desmond or altair... I think Ac has a story that translates well into movies but it doesnt mean that they can slack on the writing.

Uncharted I think will be an original plot.

The last of us should follow the story but might expand on things a little.

And yeah I dont really have much hope for a COD film unless they really work hard on it... that story would have to be more than everything that they have ever come up with!

You are right though,  they have preset expectations as games and therefore have a lot to live up to. Past films have been awful (like the mario film. ..) I just think the film ondustry is more prepared and up to the task than its ever been to adapt games into films.
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: 50 Words for Paipis on August 22, 2014, 04:25:33 PM
Yeah, I hope they put the right people to work on it. These are opportunities to at least make visually interesting movies. Hopefully, they won't mess it up with formulaic stories and overly shiny CGI.

But Mario was an odd exception in that most things in the movie looked nothing like the game. Mushroom Kingdom really just looked like a 80s-style cyberpunk dystopia covered in puke.
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: legomaestro on August 22, 2014, 04:35:05 PM
Yeah that's what I mean by good. There are some horrible movies we forgive.

Apparently TMNT has too much professional critic hate, while the actual audiences enjoyed it. I got swept up in the hate wave to be honest. I'm willing to give it a try.

Pfft. Tomb Raider. A movie carried because of Angelina Jolie... *nosebleed*
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: NO1SY on August 22, 2014, 05:13:43 PM
I heard that TMNT got a really good crowd reaction too. But I still wont go see it... cinema is too expensive for experimentation nowadays :P

How to train your dragon 2 though! Gonna make aure thats the next film I go see!

I'm rewatching all the Mission Impossible films atm (Currently almost finished 3). It's really interesting for me to see how production and filmography ideas changed over the course of those movies... the difference between each and the times that they aired really come through when you watch them because they each have hallmark tropes of those years. Bringing Simon Pegg into the franchise was the best decision they made though...

the roommate and I watched the Zatoichi (spelling?) remake/reboot/whatever it was exactly the other night. Not too bad. bit anticlimatic, could have done without the cgi blood. good twist though.

Just finished re-watching Space Pirate: Captain Harlock (although this time on netflix instead of by download, with decent subtitles that weren't translated by a freakin' 5 year old...)

It's based off of a manga with the same name (that I never read) and I don't know what it is exactly but I really enjoy this CGI movie adaptation. The story's pacing is a little bit up and down and all over the place, and some of the tropes are pretty corny, but I love the concept and a lot of the story itself. The animation is also stunning. And it's about space pirates... yeah pirates, in space! So cool!

I really wouldn't mind seeing more films along these lines :)

Well... I'm still ill... so instead of doing something productive in my bed-ridden state I instead decided to watch the three "Revelation Road" films that are out so far in the series...

These films are kind of Mad-Max meets Jason Bourne meets a really long day at church...

I'm not Christian, nor religious outside of respecting the choices of my parents, but I thought based on the premise of the films, religious or not, I would find some enjoyment watching them... I certainly have a lot of interest, from a writers perspective, in the mythology surrounding the apocalypse depicted in the book of Revelations.

But I sit here and just think "Wow... can't believe I sat through 5 hours of this...".

I don't have anything against devout followers of any faith, but these films really try to shamelessly shove it down the watcher's throat... I wouldn't even mind so much if I didn't feel like I would have actually enjoyed the film if they weren't so up front about the religious lessons. It was like they had two directors... one who was trying to make a cool, post-apocalyptic, redemption, super-spy film, and then the other, a religious one standing over the other guy's shoulder going "remember to make sure that they know Jesus loves them all in every scene, even when there is killing, which must always be justified". There are some pretty well known actors in the films too that all play side roles and are better acted than the main roles because they don't have to blurt out wooden lines of religious insight eery two minutes. The religion could have been played so much more subtly to add a layer of moral context and imagery on top of the simple storyline instead of being in the driving seat and getting in the way...

Not going to lie, I watched these films because the 3rd one is titled "Revelation Road: Black Rider" with a black horse on the front and I was hoping to get another perspective on the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse... wooops... For a MUCH MUCH better film that isn't so long winded and does the religion thing a whole lot better go watch "The Book of Eli" with Denzel Washington. Such a good film and interesting ideas. I even think the redemption story in Solomon Kane is better than this. Undecided if I will watch the yet to be released 4th instalment in this series and I can only imagine that these films are funded by the Vatican or something for this many to be made...

Watched the second and third Ong Bak films today. The second one was absolutely EPIC and although not a story sequel to the first it was very worthy of the title. The third was a bit meh because they added awkward supernatural stuff with a character that didn't make any sense... the action is still stop notch though and now I know where 300 stole its slow-mo scenes from :P

The Thing (1982) directed by John Carpenter

This movie is horribly underrated and something that 'modern' 'horror' movies should take note from. Not to go off on a tangent, but the horror genre nowadays is laughable and dominated by exorcisms (not sure if that's just the American religious side or not).
The Thing doesn't resort to predictable plot, jump scares and stupid characters. The Thing is actually well thought out, original and truly sickening with its grotesque gore! It leaves questions, but in a good way that makes you desire a sequal.

Just got back from "The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies"

I liked it. My brother hated it... but I liked it.

The CGI freakin sucks complete ass in all of the films and some really questionable scene choreography choices were made... Moreover most disappointing was the fact that the films were just not at all gritty like the LOTR films... no blood... even when heads are rolling... and all up close death is off camera which sucked.

BUT the story was well told, much improved over the filler of the second film, the settings were great and the characters all really shone through for the most part. Plus the lead-ons are pretty nice - I think they could even do some original filler stories if the promised not to screw them up... I think marathoning these films would be a much better experience than watching them separately too.

Just watched the History Of The Eagles documentary. For a 3 hour movie it passed by very quickly. It was a great story with tons of old footage in it. They where to lucky to have filmed so much studio and backstage footage from the 70s. It was a really great documentary, band documentaries are always the best ones. Musician's biographies are also the only books I ever read! Eagles are a great band, I'm getting into them now. Got a few records and seeking out them all, they don't have many so it won't be as huge a search as some other bands.

I watched a documentary on the making of one of Bruce Springsteen's masterpieces Darkness On The Edge of Town as well. As if I couldn't like Bruce anymore, my God. He's so great. The guy is just incredible, writing 70 songs for an album,  rewriting the songs over and over again to perfection, trashing the songs destined to be big hits for ones that fit the album better. No one is as great as Bruce and no one will ever be as great as him again. It was a great documentary on a great guy and a great fricking album.

I haven't watched any new movies recently, but I recently watched The Road To El Dorado! It was a nostalgia trip. It was one of my favorite movies as a child, and my grandparents were the ones who owned it (On VHS tape! Such an ancient thing.) so it was always a tradition for my sister and I to watch it at least once when we took a trip to see them. It was recently added to Netflix, and I watched it... Goodness, I love that movie. Still a favorite of mine, even now that I've grown up. I might even love it more now that I have more appreciation for animation and art. It's funny, the animation is beautiful and colorful, the songs are catchy and hard to get out of your head, and overall just a fun movie. Plus the nostalgia factor it has for me is always a plus.

If you haven't seen it, check it out!

But the one that stood out as WTF is this? of the month was called "Hobo with a shotgun". It's about....a hobo, who one day gets a shotgun. The effects are so bad/over the top that its comical.

So I just saw the new Sponge Bob movie. I had to see it since the series was such a big part of my childhood and the classic episodes and the movie still hold up as brilliant comedic gold.

I went in the movie a little worried but hopeful. I didn't expect something as good as the first movie and I wasn't disappointed when it wasn't that. It was a good movie but it wasn't really like a movie. It didn't feel like a movie but rather two long episodes. It passed by very quick as well. 1 hour and 30 minutes felt like 40 minutes. It was over before wit felt like it really kicked off. There was not a coherent story like the first movie, I felt like there where two different resolves and climaxes in the film. That part was very weak. There where a lot of good jokes and laughs but it lacked that big moment. That one hilarious unexpected part that you look forward to seeing every time. Like in the first movie with the Goofy Goober Rock scene and the Band Geeks episode with the Sweet Victory part. There was not that big moment in this movie but rather a series of small jokes. They where good jokes though and I did silently laugh a few times. There was just no "oh my God that's hilarious" part.

There was a lot of little references from the classic episodes, I liked that. Some parts felt like the classic series when the classic soundtrack played. Un like the trailer shows most of the movie is normal animation. The scenes with the pirate and the Seagulls where pretty bad though. It was dumb. But when Sponge Bob and co went on the surface it was good. I liked those scenes a lot. What's weird is Slash was in the trailer yet not in the movie! Welcome to The Jungle wasn't in the movie either but it was in the trailer! But ya the CGI stuff was a very small part. It wasn't bad.

I sometimes forgot I was watching a kids movie and got really critical but then I was like "oh ya this is for kids". I swear I was the only non parent over 12 in the theater. I wasn't embarrassed to be there though. I really am thinking about this too much though. It's a simple kids movie but it doesn't compare to the first movie. The first movie felt like a movie and it was fricking hilarious. It still holds up perfectly. I dropped out of Sponge Bob after Friend or Foe and looking back it did go downhill after the first movie, but there are a lot of good episodes after season 3. This movie was like one of those episodes. Not on the level of genius as the classics but good on it's own. The series has been around for 16 years and the first movie came out 10 years ago. So for a movie about a series that's been on that long, it was good. I laughed and enjoyed it. It was a good movie it just had some issues. But it's Sponge Bob, it shouldn't be analyzed so deeply. I don't regret watching it in the theater. There was a lot of Plankton in this movie and again the jokes where good. There was no big moment in this movie but it was still good. A solid 7/10 film.

Watched the Imitation Game yesterday! It's a biographical drama on Alan Turing, who created a machine during WWII that cracked the incredibly cryptic German codes written by Enigma machines. This machine he created would later be considered as one of the earliest computers to ever be made. Unfortunately, his accomplishments were overshadowed by controversy and personal aspects of his life and would not be recognized until many years later.

Great movie you guys! Definitely worth a watch. Here's a site you can watch it for free if you don't wanna spend money watching it in the theaters :tongue:: http://www.primewire.ag/watch-2760073-The-Imitation-Game-online-free

Just watched Age of Ultron. It was a good film, I thought the characterization was great and there where actually quite a bit of good laughs and memorable lines. The action was cool and I thought all the characters where good this time around. In the first movie I thought Hawk Eye was pretty lame but in this movie he defiantly shone. All the characters where great in this movie, Ultron was pretty awesome to. I haven't seen the first movie since it came out so I don't remember tons about it but this movie felt like it was better. Well especially since the whole group was already established. There where defiantly goosebumps rising in the first scene. Good movie I had fun!

However as good as it is it's going to be dust in the wind when Episode 7 comes out.  ;)
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: 50 Words for Paipis on May 28, 2015, 05:46:02 PM
I liked Age of Ultron. One thing though:
Spoiler
The whole Jarvis thing towards the end was a little weird though. Especially the part where Thor just has this stone that was discussed very little and somehow ingrained it into Jarvis' meat suit.
Some other moments I wasn't crazy about, but it was otherwise a good film.

Just saw Home, a Dreamworks movie about a race of extraterrestrials who runaway from another extraterrestrials eventually running to Earth. I did not like this one.
Spoiler
One of the main characters, an extraterrestrial, is obnoxious and unrealistically happy about everything at the beginning. It might be one thing were that 1. typical of his race 2. meant to imply some kind of inhumanity. But 1. it wasn't typical of his race. He holds a housewarming party at the beginning of the movie, and the rest of the Boovs (as the cowardly extraterrestrials are called) reply that "Boovs don't party." How do any of them even know what a party is then? 2. The creators try to make you sympathize with him when nobody goes to said party. I might sympathize with a real person who was in that situation, but they give little to make you believe this character is real. They eventually try to say that he knows that everybody finds him obnoxious, but his entire race shows their emotions involuntarily by changing the color of their face. He does not. They obviously meant him to seem oblivious to other's feelings towards him at the beginning and were never able to reconcile that with the sympathy you're supposed to feel for him later in the movie, when he talks about how he doesn't "fit in" and how he knows the other Boovs dislike him. The other main character seemed mostly just a placeholder for her skincolor. She was much preferable to the other one, but there wasn't much else to her than her spunky demeanor, supposed cleverness, and her inability to fit in, just a permutation of cliches that were not made realistic or human in any way. The movie was also pretty scattered thematically. It's starts out like a saccharine Pixar short about an alien who doesn't fit in because he's happy while everyone else is cynical and pessimistic. Yet this theme (themes are generally brought to the audience's attention via contrast) never amounts to anything. There is secondly the theme of "not fitting in" or "being unique" which is a theme in the other main character's arc as well. This theme is really explored for about 12 seconds in a conversation between both characters. The third theme is one of running away, which is probably explored the most through generalizations of the human race as being brave and the Boovs as being cowardly. MC Boov learns how to be courageous. The fourth theme is one of being alone. The girl's mother has been taken to Humantown by the Boovs and she wasn't because she was holding a cat at the time (and the Boovs sensors picked her up as a cat and not a human, which shouldn't have been unique as a large percentage of people in the world have household pets). This theme is not shared with MC Boov however. Not in a perceivable way given everything else that's going on. Only the latter two themes have any relevance to the villain, the latter of the latter two only really in passing. The theme of running away from your problems vs. facing them is the strongest (not without its flaws), but the film is so cluttered with other themes that don't really mean much that it's a bit tiring to watch. The style also changes from "latest feel good kids animation with dance soundtrack" to "shaky, glare-y camera alien invasion movie" for about 20 minutes. Then back for a closing dance sequence. Towards the end of the movie, when they start showing more humans, you'll notice that while all the aliens and the humans given speaking parts are competently animated, the other humans will take you back to 90s in terms of animation.
There are a lot of little inconsistencies I could point out, but these were my biggest problems with the movie. Still, I was glad to be able to go to the movies both times. I don't get to do that a lot. I don't think I'd like Tomorrowland or Paul Blart any better, either.
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: Aozora on May 28, 2015, 06:31:08 PM
I was  also confused by the red guy appearing out of nowhere. I think the stone came from Loki's scepter but I'm not 100% sure. Usually movies like this are not meant for the story but more for the mind-numbing action and entertainment, and I think Age of Ultron included that pretty well.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention I saw Mad Max. It had a surprisingly very simple plot, lot of action, and was very unique in the way it was taken and portrayed. I'm not sure what its specialty is that made it receive so much critical acclaim though. Anybody else seen it?

Everyone was saying it's the best non-Disney animated film of all time?! I couldn't even sit through the whole thing, I had to turn it off before it was done because I was so annoyed...

Post by: Manimal on December 19, 2015, 04:58:28 PM
Just watched The Force Awakens.

Spoiler
Wow. This movie is a lot to take in. An emotional overload.

First there was a very sad short CG film before the movie. My God, I almost cried over it and than it goes right into the LucasFilms logo and BAM! Right there Star Wars Episode VII. I almost cried. It was incredible. It was unbelievable. I simply could not believe I was seeing a new Star Wars movie. Wow.

This movie succeeded in recapturing the feel of A New Hope and Empire. There was that great sense of high stakes, adventure all that good stuff. This movie is a lot like A New Hope. That was great. The Storm Troopers actually felt like a threat this time. This movie got pretty dark at times, the bad guys seemed badder. Expect Kylo Ren. He wasn't a good villain however it made sense. He is still fairly untrained and a Darth Vader copy cat. It portrays this well. He's not a badass and he doesn't have even a fraction of Darth Vader's presence from Empire. But I liked that. He wasn't meant to be like Darth Vader. 

Like the originals there where some funny charming moments. BB-8 giving his thumbs up, Rey mind tricking the Storm Trooper, most of Han's dialogue, good stuff. Speaking of Han I knew that was going to happen, however the scene with him and Kylo Ren was still very tense. It sucked to see a character as great as Han go that way. I would've rather seen him sacrificing himself for the team or something, but it made sense. Poor Chewie...

The new cast was excellent in this movie. Rey and Finn where both really good. Rey really felt like Luke from A New Hope in this movie, but in a different way. Just like A New Hope the light saber fight wasn't big, overblown, and a huge centerpiece. It was a short scene at the end and felt like the originals. I really liked that, I mean the Prequels had bad ass fights, but I prefer the simplicity of this.

The ship scenes where great, man it's come a long way from the originals. I saw it in 3D and it was distracting at times but there was one stunning scene of a Star Destroy right in your face. That was amazing and was really 3D at it's limit. Also the shots inside of the X-Wings where like you where really there. That was great.

There where so many powerful moments in this film. When it showed the Millennium Falcon it was like "no way". Finn goes into the same gun pit from A New Hope, they use the masks from Empire, it was too much. Than seeing the Star Destroyer and AT-AT on that planet...stunning. Han and Chewy appearing, Leia...I almost shed tears so many times during this movie. It was so powerful. Than the ending of the movie, with Binary Sunset playing, UGH! MY GOD! It was way too much. This movie was an overload.

I stared at the screen in awe for every single second of the movie. Right until the last words of the credits faded out. It was a great start to a new series. The new characters where great and it sets up a lot for the next movies. In short it lived up to the hype, oh my God did it ever. The feel of A New Hope and Empire is back.

I'm not going to say anything silly like it's better than A New Hope and Empire, but this is a different time and a new experience that shouldn't be compared to the old movies. This is a new beginning and it was stunning. This movie was everything I wanted it to be and more. It was such an overload. There where so many moments where I couldn't believe what I was seeing, I haven't had a theatre experience like this since Revenge Of The Sith.

Star Wars is not some mere movie series. It's far more than that. Even if there are bad ones in the series it's still Star Wars. There are no other movies like it and NOTHING will EVER come close to the magic of these films. This movie is not easy to take it, for me there is no clear cut "it was good, 10/10" or anything. All other movies are fairly irrelevant to me compared to Star Wars. I am still in awe of what I witnessed. Seeing all the kids at the theatre was like seeing myself watching Episode II and III, just as amazed as them. Star Wars is truly the most timeless series of movies. Nothing else is like it.

In short, Star Wars is back with all new life and man oh man, it's gonna be a golden series of movies ahead of us.

I just watched Anastasia... Maybe I'm just spoiled with the quality of animated films from Disney, Universal, and Ghibli but... I really didn't like it. Everyone was saying it's the best non-Disney animated film of all time?! I couldn't even sit through the whole thing, I had to turn it off before it was done because I was so annoyed... And that's saying something because I believe that's the first time I couldn't finish a movie and turned it off. o_o
I enjoyed Anastasia the first time I watched it  (and I was older when I did). But I've never been able to sit through it a second time. That goes for Disney, Universal, Dreamworks, and the like as well. Especially recently. I wasn't even able to sit through Frozen the first time.

So just got back from The Force Awakens.

Spoiler free thoughts although I wouldn't read until after you've seen it to compare opinions and avoid imprinting mine on to you beforehand.


Spoiler
I honestly don't know how it got so many 5 star reviews...

Really wish they focused more on establishing and then developing the new characters - Fin's sub-plot had so much potential that was squandered because of this. Fin started out waaaaaaay too human already which was a shame...

They also become proficient in certain things way too quickly so it felt like there was barely any progression in that regard. And they also formed close bonds with one another really quickly (almost as if a ton of meaningful dialogue and "getting to know each other" scenes were either off screen or cut out). It made a lot of interactions feel really out of the blue, really de-humanised the characters and didn't help me to get behind anyone.

I also wish that the return of old characters were more meaningful and not just for nostalgia purposes. Rather than learning where they've been and what they've been doing through any form of storytelling they are made to quickly spit out references to adventures/situations/places we have never seen in an attempt to feign filling in the gaps. Then they are just there to spit out one liners and reference the previous films in an attempt to seem self aware.

Again... to much jargon meant to sound spacey and sci-fi but is just meaningless filler dialogue.... just in case we forgot that this is Star Wars I guess???

The plot is completely predictable the whole time. There was not a single moment that I was surprised/intrigued/held in suspense/moved by anything. Again, felt like the writing was put second to the nostalgia factor.

Kylo Ren is just an angsty teen that has too many tantrums and his motivations are paper thin...

The acting for Rey is wooden and terrible.

Did I mention how many bloody one-liners there are in this film by every character ever...

New Yoda is not as green...

Also, I guess I've been watching too much cinema sins recently, but there were a ton of little oversights that really bugged me the whole film...


Really don't read this unless you have seen the film...
Where are all of those groups of soldiers running to in different directions on the landing strip of the rebel base?

How come Fin can shoot better than all of the other storm troopers? And how come both him and Rey can hold their own in a lightsaber duel against Kylo Ren, who has been trained in lightsaber combat, when they have 0 experience...?

The Space monsters/aliens Han is smuggling kill all of the gang members they catch straight away, but when one catches Fin it decides to drag him around the ship...?

How come Leia walks right past chewy, the companion to Han since the beginning and a friend for years and years, who is probably more distraught than anyone, to hug Rey, a girl she has known for all of 5 minutes, who is unnaturally upset about the situation...?

The Falcon seems to be made of stronger stuff than every other thing in the universe... it just tears through everything... literally... and barely gets a dent!

How do they manage to get sound in space!?!?!?


It's not all doom and gloom... I really enjoyed a lot of the dog fights - the X-wing fleet entry was freakin' awesome and the animation and destruction was very cool and well done.

The film looks beautiful in general.

The acting for Fin was great for the most part.

I also liked the fact that there was a focus on wounding during the sober duels. It made them more gritty, although a little less entertaining than Yoda flipping around everywhere.


REALLY... WATCH THE FILM FIRST...
Mark Hamill is looking great as Luke (although it sets up Episode VIII's plot to be really boring... and what the hell has he been doing all this time? Staring at the sea? One lost pupil and he freakin gives up on everything???)

So yeah... not a terrible film... I saw the film on the biggest screen in Europe in Imax 3D which helped with the overall delivery I feel but I still found it pretty disappointing, if not mainly just for it's lack of proper storytelling... VIII may have a chance to be decent if they get rid of all of the "cherry on top" style nostalgia scenes and dialogue in place of some actual meaningful storytelling and character development, and if they stop trying to make it such a child friendly set of films also...

The guy sitting next to me was cheering before the film started and left halfway through...

Sigh... I really hope they don't bring back Jar Jar...

A bit late to the party, but I finally managed to find the time to watch The Force Awakens yesterday. This may just be because it is fresh in my mind, but I think it may be my favourite Star Wars movie at this point.

Now I should probably add that the Original Trilogy, which was re-released around the time I was a kid and got to enjoy at the cinema, doesn't hold that mystique/almost god like level of worship it does over many others. I liked the films and the universe, but I never thought they were the best.

With Episode VII, I liked most of the new cast of characters and they contrasted nicely with the returning cast members. The plot was pretty easy to work out and predict, so rather than saving the plot points as easy to solve mysteries, they reveal these pieces of info early on.

Overall, I enjoyed it and would recommend it.

Recently watched "What We Do In The Shadows," it's got to be the first time I've enjoyed a film about vampires.

For anyone looking for some dumb fun, you can't get much better than a mockumentary about four vampires living together as flatmates.

Includes the guy from Flight of the Conchords which is always a laugh.

Haha that sounds interesting. There was a similar series right? Supernatural flatmates living together. There was a ghost a werewolf and something else I think

@Vacant It is for me actually. Really loved that film!

I've been invited to watch it in the cinema. It'll be in German, but It'll be good to be able to discern the pixels this time around .

I don't know where I would rank The Force Awakens. I've seen it twice so far and ya it's a damn good movie. The second time the "OH MY GOD IT'S THIS THING I'M ALMOST CRYING" factor wore off of course, but it still was wow! Both times my heart was pounding right before the opening scroll. Than as soon as it hits it's the most intense feeling. When I watch Star Wars it's a magic experience. I shut out all my surroundings and put 100% focus into the film. Both times I just stood there as the credits rolled right until they ended. The cleanup crew impatiently waited at the bottom of the stairs both times as just me and 1 or 2 other people stood there in awe watching the credits. But I wasn't leaving until the last note of John William's God tier soundtrack ended.

The film certainly isn't better than A New Hope and Empire. As far as I'm concerned those are the best movies that will ever be made there will be no better end of story. Maybe it's better than Return Of The Jedi, however I don't think it can beat those amazing Vader, Luke, Emperor scenes. I'd put it at either #3 or #4. I for one was not let down and it was amazing both times.

Everytime I watch Star Wars I become 5 again, hence why I type like this about it. A new Star Wars movie is just as amazing to me as it was when Episode II and III came out.

I liked The Force Awakens. I definitely saw flaws, but its strengths played a far bigger role in my enjoyment of the film.

The performances were great overall (aside from Carrie Fisher). As far as characters go, I particularly liked Kylo Ren. He was kind of an encapsulation of the light/dark, peace/hatred struggle that both Luke and Vader had. The scenes where he just rampaged and destroyed equipment were great. Fin, Rey, Snoak, Hux, and the other new characters were great as well. Visuals were also great.

Spoiler
J.J. Abrams tends to want to rush scripts too much and go with the quickest solutions, perhaps having too much fear in losing the viewer. As a result, there were too many things that felt a little too fast-paced and lacked development (Finn and Rey's relationship, Han/Leia/Kylo Ren's relationship), other things where information could have been communicated clearer (the force vision), and other points where information was being communicated in kind of a contrived, overly clear way (Han and Leia's conversation about Kylo Ren). Even the beginning text was so much shorter than in most Star Wars films. To boot, I think he kind of tried just a bit too much to include plot points and lines from the original trilogy, when the general visual aesthetic, the return of the original characters, and the new characters kind of did enough justice to the original films anyway. A lot of the lines that were copped from the original trilogy ("I've got a bad feeling about this.") felt rather contrived. And the Starkiller really made no sense to me.

But predictability wasn't a problem for me. Never really has been. A good twist is a good twist regardless of whether or not you know what's going to happen. Aside from that, Star Wars has always avoided being unpredictable. The story forms are very traditional and intended to keep the atmosphere and aesthetic. The twists the series has had ("Luke, I am your father") work even more on a character level than on a shock value level.
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: legomaestro on January 04, 2016, 01:04:57 PM

I think he did dodge several bullets with the scripting though. There were too many critical hawks and die hard fans in the air for him to even ATTEMPT to hide behind mystery and go entirely different directions. He had to pay homage to the past films as much as possible and add nice twists here and there otherwise it would've been hated. Imagine if there was no callback to the past characters and they started in a different era? Imagine if it was confined to one planet without any space battle to speak of? What if they just did away with light sabers and sith and jedi altogether and focused on the war aspect of star wars?

I think they'd have gotten too much flak for that.
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: 50 Words for Paipis on January 04, 2016, 01:17:12 PM
Oh I realize the "danger" of not doing enough justice to the original films. I just think they did that effectively with other elements.

I didn't want him to hide behind mystery or go in hugely different directions per say. Obviously, to go in any new direction in this trilogy, the first one has to provide a good enough transition. I just think some of his attempts to pay homage to the original films kind of backfired.

Spoiler
Anyway, I don't think anybody who actually likes Star Wars would get rid of Jedi and Sith.

Finally watched The Godfather for the first time. It's an extremely engrossing, dark descent story. I was pulled in for its entire 3 hour run and almost felt it ended very soon, though it made a lot of sense to end where it did. The characters and acting performances were superb, and the direction was amazing, not just in the composition of the shots, but also the way Coppola juxtaposes scenes. It provides for very effective drama. Just a great film.

I probably shouldn't have as it not only doesn't pay royalties to the creators, but the rest of the parts weren't there, just when I was getting immersed in it. Oh well. I'll have to get it on DVD.

Just finished Nightcrawler. Louis Bloom is such a conniving, slimy, awkward, eccentric, antisocial character. It's impossible not to hate him by the end of the movie. But he's such an interesting character, played expertly by Jake Gyllenhaal. The modern yet noir feel of the movie was enhanced by the nocturnal, neon-lit LA cityscape and the soundtrack which brings to mind the aesthetic of synth wave, though with guitars and sitar and several other instruments. It was a good film, but definitely sobering, even with the film's sleek aesthetic.

Sorry to be posting so much. I'm trying to watch more movies in general. Today I watched The Conformist which is a movie legendary for its fantastic cinematography. It did indeed have terrific, complex, composition-heavy visuals. But while it was a visual feat, the story wasn't great. Not that the idea of a man trying to conform under the rule of fascism isn't an interesting one, but ultimately the idea wasn't executed in a way that made the film really soar, and some of the scenes were doing a bit too much work as far as conveying information. In particular,
Spoiler
The main character's desire to conform coming from latent homosexuality was, first, underdeveloped and not completely clear in the first place (my interpretation was that the final scene had to do either with the fall of Mussolini leaving him in an identity crisis, or overcompensating in his desire to conform or both), but also eye-rollingly Freudian. I guess people used to really like the guy way back when.
And, personally, I didn't care for the amount of sex scenes.

I watched the recent Backstreet Boys documentary out of curiosity. To someone who doesn't care about the group I will say the movie did a decent job at being enjoyable. Their story was actually kind of interesting, but whenever it got into some juicy it kind of backed out before going too far. Like you have their corrupt manager who used them to get the formula right then turned around to create Nsync as their competition. That's an interesting story but the film barely touches on it, they also don't go over the 2000s era and commercial failings of the group all that much. I guess because of how the members grew up they all come across as man children in the way they act and speak. Still I thought this movie did already at trying to show the good, the bad and the ugly, I just wish there was more ugly which was the thing I was hoping for. So some parts where pretty interesting and it was enjoyable overall but something is lost here unless you're a fan.

I also watched The Buddy Holly Story. This movie was decent as well. Gary Busey nailed it as Buddy, especially when you consider the actors are actually playing the music in the film! He was great and overall it was good but it moved very quickly and glossed over many things. We never saw how big Buddy was though, this movie doesn't really go over his fame that much, focusing more on a few key moments in Buddy's way too short career. The film seemed to have a low budget and looked more like a made for TV movie and there where defiantly some inaccuracies but the whole point is to be entertaining and it was. But a Telecaster really? Buddy only plays a Strat in the last scene of the film. All that aside The Buddy Holly Story was a decent movie made by Gary Busey's excellent performance.

I remember seeing The Buddy Holly Story a while ago and enjoying it.

If you want a musician biopic that gets into the ugly, try Love & Mercy, which is about Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys. Walk the Line (about Johnny Cash) is a good one too, though pretty popular, so you might have seen it.

I might actually turn on Control right now, which is about Ian Curtis from Joy Division.

I've seen parts of the Brian Wilson one and it looked good, his story is very interesting. I know the Johnny Cash one but I've never seen it! I'd like to see the new Miles Davis one whenever its available to watch.

^that one looks cool too. Just finished the Ian Curtis one. It's actually a very good movie, but it's definitely a downer, but that's to be expected from an Ian Curtis biopic. I'd say it's good even if you don't know Joy Division's music. Maybe more so, as I found myself thinking "why didn't they use (insert Joy Division song here)?" a few times.

Saw Deadpool the other day with my Brother and some friends. Absolutely great movie, met all of my expectations and even surpassed some of them. If you don't mind crude and crass comedy, then you will be thoroughly entertained.

However, there is a different film, currently on Netflix, that I was also impressed with recently. Check out Mr. Brooks. It's a very interesting film about a serial killer that basically does in less than 2 hours what Dexter tries to do in 2 seasons :P

Just finished Dragon, a film that is one part martial arts and one part noir. It's about a detective investigating a supposedly simple man in a small village who manages to kill two highly trained killers. I actually really liked it despite some glaring flaws. First the positives: The visuals are great. The shots are gorgeous. The action is fast paced and always has drama behind it. With most action movies, I tune out of the action sequences, but these ones were thoroughly engaging. The characters were interesting as well, and everything was well paced. Not every acting performance was great, but there were some very good ones.

Negatives: some of the special effects weren't great, and there were some obvious flaws in film editing. They might have been harkening back to early martial arts movies, I don't know, but it didn't lend more power to the narrative. There were definitely also some ridiculous scenes. Though most of them are explained by the detective, the final action sequence was just too absurd to justify. Lastly, much of the dialogue erred towards, "explain things to the viewer."

However, despite this, it was an engaging film, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Is that a theater or a millionaire's basement?

I watched Fubar 1 + 2 the other day. Really great films, absolutely hilarious, these are my favorite kind of movies. The first one was of course the best. I just love these low budget character based films like my favorite comedy Napoleon Dynamite. Fubar 1 could pass off as an actual documentary as the actors perform their roles so well you are convinced they are real. Non stop laughs through the whole thing and the short film in the deleted scenes was so hilarious I could barely stop laughing as it went over all the typical amateur video making cliches. It was too funny.

Fubar 2 was not as good but it was different then the first movie. It was more like a movie as the quality was better and the film crew weren't characters. There was also some what of a story this time. Still it was hilarious and there where just as many laughs, it's good it wasn't just a sequel that made a bunch of references to the first movie. The first film is one of those one time magic things but Fubar 2 was also quite funny. I loved all the shots of Alberta and it had ZELLERS!!!!! Rest in peace. But ya these where two hilarious film and I enjoyed them a lot. I was sad when the first movie ended, I could've gone for 2 hours more.

Just finished Blade Runner. I was expecting it to be much better, but it was just... okay. Granted, it was the theatrical cut and not the lauded final cut, but the script and choreography were pretty awkward and clumsy. The visuals were sometimes nice, but, from what people said, I expected the aesthetic to be a whole lot stronger. The sci-fi noir thing is a great idea, but I just couldn't get into this one.  :noidea:

Saw Batman V Superman.

It was...okay. I  dunno, it was pretty much Man Of Steel 2 which happens to feature Batman, it felt like that to me since there is no Batman movie that it ties into. The movie felt it's length for sure and it seemed to just kinda go on and on. It's obvious the movie was made to set up for the Justice League. Ben Affleck was a fine Batman. The trailer really did take away a lot from the movie, it really shouldn't have shown that much. There are a lot of like "trailer shot" type scenes in this movie.

I didn't dislike the film but it just left me going "okay". I mean ya the action was cool but there wasn't really any stakes in the last fight, it was kinda like "how much stuff can be destroyed". I dunno, again not a bad film. I have yet to see a superhero movie in theaters I've disliked but this one just made me go "I dunno".

Watched the original Superman for the first time in many years.

What a slow long movie eh? Still for it's time it's an excellent movie. It's shot really well, the background shots really where stunning at times. Especially on the farm. I'm easily drawn in by beautiful cloudy skies and lighted cityscapes myself and this movie had plenty of that. For acting no one has ever come close to Christopher Reeve as Superman, dare I say he gives the greatest superhero performance there is. He is simple in this movie, just a guy who always does the right thing and also is very charismatic and charming. As Clark Kent he is a much different person and Reeve did a great job playing the two sides differently. Lois was good and Lex was also portrayed very well. He was a silly villain, along with his comic relief sidekick Otis but I didn't find them to be over the top.

There will never be another comic book movie as simple as this. Here we have no fighting at all, just heroic antics. This movie is just a straight forward classic superhero story for a straight forward classic superhero. It's so simple and light hearted. I don't dislike dark complex superhero movies but I appreciate simplicity above all and for it's time this movie works very well. The effects are dated and the showdown between Superman and Lex is underwhelming but it's a very slow movie that takes it's time to set up the characters. I like the scene where Superman and Lois fly around New York. It's long but I think it works as a development of their romance. I feel the two of them had good chemistry and even though the whole spinning the world around to turn back time thing is silly it shows that Superman doesn't want to make it without the ones he loves by his side. A simple but effective character arc that begins with his Dad dying which shows our alien hero is as human as they come.

Superman is a nice lighthearted, campy, enjoyable movie. Modern audiences might find it boring and slow, and I will admit a small amount could be shaved off however for what it is I think it stands as a classic superhero movie that is straight forward and effective. You have to view it in context to it's time though as many aspects are dated.

Also John Williams. Best superhero theme OF ALL TIME. I got goosebumps everytime it played and I could've hold back a grin during the opening credits. Has there ever been a better film composer? Nope.

You know I liked Man Of Steel myself however a darker Superman just doesn't do it for me. The Superman in this movie is the best he's ever been portrayed in film because of how simple he is. He is played as a super man. He is likeable and always does the right thing. He values the lives of everybody and is at his core a human. Superman is literally the ultimate and most definitive superhero. Of course things must be updated over the years and I'm not saying a dark Superman is bad. I get the more realistic approach in Man Of Steel and Bats v Superman but nothing is better then good ol' Christopher Reeve flying around and saving the day.

That is Superman.

Just watched Purple Rain for obvious reasons...wowee.

I never listened to Prince or cared about him at all but man, I should've seen this film earlier, my God the music, the passion. As a movie the acting was mediocre, everyone sounded like they where reading off cue cars and the deliveries where all off. The acting was a step down from John in A Hard Day's Night but better then KISS Meets The Phantom Of The Park. But in terms of visuals and everything else it was spectacular. The last scene was wow, very emotional and intense. When the music was doing the talking it was brilliant. The Purple Rain scene in the climax was a fricking steamroller, wow. What a song and Prince goes insane. So much passion in this film.

Again the acting was poor and some of the writing was as well however in terms of how it was shot and the music it was a great watch. Long but if there is ever a time to watch the movie it's now. I felt an instant awakening moment during the final scene, I finally understood why Prince is so praised, but I found out too late! When Michael Jackson died I didn't feel like a poser since I liked him before, but I didn't care about Prince at all prior to today. I have Purple Rain, listened once and thought "it was okay" but after seeing this movie it all came together. Suddenly When Doves Cry and the title track made sense...watching Purple Rain was a revelation moment for sure, I just feel a bit like a poser but oh well.

Watched Blue Hawaii.

Elvis' movies are all pretty cheesy and as they go on the scripts get worse and worse and Elvis stops caring. Blue Hawaii was made at a good point though where the formula wasn't overdone yet and Elvis still put in some effort. He's not a bad actor actually, it's the writers that are the problem. Elvis never got to be in a real movie or play anyone besides himself. Even if he goes by different characters and backstories, it's still him being him. This movie was pretty entertaining and funny. The Hawaii setting was nice but I feel the colours where kinda meh. An overload of barfy green tones and there was never a clear sky. Of course this stuff can't be controlled, maybe I watched a bad quality version because the colours weren't very vibrant.

Elvis was really violent and rough in the movie! He drags his girlfriend into the water and play drowns her, picks up a dog by it's front legs and almost throws it down, gets into a karate bar fight and spanks a girl. As for music this movie's title track is great but Can't Help Falling In Love is the showstopper. The whole thing halts to a freeze and Elvis performs one of the greatest love songs of all time. It's the most intense part of the film, it felt like time froze during that scene. Rock A Hula Baby is a jam and the Hawaiian Wedding song and scene was good. I Think Blue Hawaii is not too bad, it was a fun movie and Elvis was good in it.

I also watched Magical Mystery Tour. It was pretty awful to be honest but I don't regret watching it. There is one scene in a restaurant where John shovels this disgusting substance onto a table with a shovel...it was so gross. This movie is a big drug trip. There was a faux Elvis, Nazi guy, all this crazy stuff. Ringo was like wildly drunk. The wizard scenes made me laugh so much. Overall it was bad but at least...well not even enjoyable to be honest, just stupid with the occasional laugh and a lot of "um what?'.

A few days ago I watched The End of the Tour. It stars Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg– basically the cast of a stoner comedy. But it's actually an effective drama/biopic about post-modernist novelist David Foster Wallace. It's based on a piece written by a Rolling Stone journalist who went on tour with Wallace not long before Wallace committed suicide. Segel disappears into the role of DFW, the depressive genius who wrote the complex 1000-page Infinite Jest, and the humble everyman who spoke in simple terms, liked Die Hard, and had a celebrity crush on Alanis Morissette. It's really quite stunning what Segel can do given the right role. Eisenberg plays the Rolling Stone journalist, also a novelist, but unsuccessful and jealous of DFW. All in all, a fantastic drama and insight into the mind of a great author.

Today I watched Curse of the Golden Flower. I've been on a bit of a Yimou kick lately having watched Hero and House of the Flying Daggers. Having read reviews, many said the story wasn't as good as Yimou's earlier work, but I honestly felt it was better. It was darker and more complex. With the extremely ornate visuals and the Shakespearean tragedy feel it's definitely more exhausting, but it's definitely a great movie and a look into the disturbing parts of Chinese royalty. The final battle scene wasn't just an action scene. It thrived on the characters and their conflicts. And the visuals. Those visuals. If you've ever seen the kind of over-the-top detail in Baroque architecture, you'll have a good idea of what this is like.

I just saw the Hateful Eight. If anyone wanted to see a play in movie format that would be it.

Walton Goggins role deserved an oscar. People keep saying he didn't have an arc but he did. He went from a daddy's boy living off his family name to a person who finally took control. He was brutally honest and at times racist, but i think we should accept that since it was during that time. People keep saying that he stayed a racist, yeah, people don't change like that in real life!  Other people thought Samuel L. Jackson deserved it but the
Spoiler
BJ scene
forfeited it.

I liked the movie. 8.5/10. I started to see pictures.  <--- if you get what i am saying.

Saw KISS Rocks Vegas, special showing in the theatre. What started as a cool concert video turned into an emotional experience.

It's a film of their Vegas shows from two years ago. It starts with a bit of talking then goes into a full concert. It was fricking loud, I guess it was trying to be like seeing KISS, but man it got overwhelming at times. Ya ya, I Love It Loud, if it's too loud you're too old, but man. I longed for the bits of silence between songs.

It sounded good, Paul's vocals are in bad shape now but he didn't sound too too bad here. He stayed away from tough songs like I Was Made For Lovin' You for the Vegas shows. They played Psycho Circus, my favourite song of all time, the song that got me into music, which was rad and Creatures Of The Night which is a good addition as well. It was all going normal until Do You Love Me?. During the song a montage of KISStory clips are shown in the back screen. So in the movie you'll see a few glances of it, catching bits of Ace and Peter...however when it showed Eric Carr I felt something...it showed Eric twice. Suddenly the feels came in and for the rest of the show I was overwhelmed with a variety of emotions.

KISS is the single most important band to me, there is no equal. It was 7 years ago I got super into the bad, and by way music. I've seen KISS live once, saw two tribute bands, and watched many old concerts time and time again. However seeing this on the big screen was kind of amazing. When Gene says KISS is more then a band in the beginning it's not hype speak, it's the truth. No matter how many great artists I find, how many Bruces, how many Beatles, how many Utadas, there is always going to be KISS, right on the top pile. Even seeing these ageing rock stars, the magic is long gone, the illusion of the old days gone...there is still something there and that something comes off on the big screen.

One day I'll probably type an 80 page essay on KISS but for now I will leave it at, KISS Rocks Vegas was a great theatre event, a little too loud, but a great time non the less.

I saw The Brothers Grimsby last night. I thought it was hilarious. Mark Strong was hilarious. There were some scenes I had to turn away from because they were gross funny. It was my type of funny so I gave it a 8.5/10. I thought the bro bond was pretty cool and touching.

The villain was generic and weak but I wasn't watching an action drama.

Got to see Suicide Squad two days ago, it was a great movie. Not perfect and still not on par with Marvel's movies, but it was definitely better than Man of Steel and Batman v Superman. Will Smith (Deadshot) and Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) made that movie, but Deadshot was probably the best character in the movie. El Diablo deserves a mention too, he was awesome!

So I tried to watch Silence of the Lambs last night. I underestimated how much of a horror movie it was. I thought it was going to be more of a psychological study. Lots of dialogue, manipulation, questioning etc. But there was a lot of gore and I couldn't even bring myself to finish it. The escape sequence... geez.

I'd been watching a few horror movies too. I've realized that I'm not easily scared, but very sensitive to graphic violence. The Babadook, for instance, which many I've talked to found quite scary, never scared me per se. Nor did The Shining. Because they aren't gory. But Pulp Fiction kept me up the night I watched it.

Which is not to say that I think graphic violence is always bad. Apocalypse Now is a movie in which I felt the violence warranted and it's power to disgust and shock was used to make poignant statements about the depravity of man and the Vietnam War. Now, I can't speak for Silence of the Lambs because I didn't finish it. But I do feel many movies wander into that territory without a real excuse to do so. Particularly movies of the pulp-y type. But then I again, I'm especially sensitive to that where many I know aren't.

Well, I've been watching a lot of movies this summer, so I'll just list them:
Ikiru
Citizen Kane
Wild Strawberries
Psycho
10 Cloverfield Ln
Creed
The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness
There Will Be Blood
The Godfather Pt. II
Apocalypse Now
2001: A Space Odyssey
The Sting
The Host
The Babadook
Jiro Dreams of Sushi
Creep
Sunset Boulevard
Mahler
Ran
The Spirit of the Beehive
Vampyr
Silence of the Lambs

Watched this documentary "I Am Thor".

It's about a body builder, metal vocalist who never made it big. He tries to recapture his former..."glories"...and it's basically the Anvil movie without the charm. The film tries to build up Thor as someone who should've made it big but it instead unintentionally documents a disillusioned bunch of people who over think their own importance. Thor's music was nothing, and even the songs in the movie are very derivative. But he states he should've been big like Led Zeppelin. KISS is slammed a couple times, and Thor is even compared to The Ramones. I thought this was a mocumentary at first but the more I watched the more tragic it became.

This man is playing tiny ballrooms, struggling to put on his stage costume in the right order, bombing at Comic Con. In one scene the drummer goes up to a group of music fans in Finland and expects them to know who he is. I have a very hard time believing anything was true in this movie, it seems like everything is played for laughs, but I don't know if that was the intention. The film flips it's purpose, instead of revealing some kind of lost legend, it showcases a legend in his own mind. He goes on like a ten year comeback tour, and the film ends with them playing music festivals. There are some super passionate fans. About 2 of them. 

This movie was odd. I thought for sure it was a joke at first, there are so many unintentionally funny scenes. I don't know if this movie was trying to be a real life Spinal Tap, but it really wanted to be like Anvil's film. It was not quite as well done however. You could not take these people seriously. There is a song "sh*t the pants, time to take a stance". Thor says something like "ya it's a meaningful song, on the same level as Dylan". Like...are you for real?

Compared to the Twisted Sister and Quiet Riot documentaries, atleast those guys had the right idea about themselves. That Twisted Sister one is pretty good. The guys know they're a silly fun live band and they roll with it. They don't try to make themselves off as anything else. It was good, I do like Dee's attitude.
 
Watched "1991 : The Year Punk Broke" a few weeks ago as well. Good film. I like how it was shot and I feel it captured it's subject pretty well. Most of the focus is on Sonic Youth and their badass live performances. Nirvana is also featured a lot, they are seen right before "Smells Like Teen Spirit" exploded. Musically they are rather unimpressive compared to the other groups, but Kurt's onstage antics are the most wild. He destroys Dave's drums twice. Everyone was really goofy backstage. Thurston comes off like a stoned teenager. I feel it was hammed up for comedic value, and it was funny.

Dinosaur Jr. where awesome in the movie as well. Everyone was most likely wasted, especially Nirvana. It was a good watch. Thurston acts like a dunce but it's no joke when he's molesting his battle worn guitars with drum sticks.

Watched The Beatles Eight Days A Week documentary in theaters. It was good, expect for the part where my theater didn't get the Shea Stadium concert. A few of us went to complain and it was found out they straight up did not get it on the disc, even though it was promised, teased before the film, and warranted an extra bonus on the ticket price. The movie aired on HBO last night, I wanted to see it at the show, but the main selling point was to see the new Shea Stadium, remastered at last, complete, awesome, on the big screen.

But that aside it was a good documentary that captured the scale and reach of Beatlemania and their impact on culture. It goes over their touring years, and shows how the band went from boys to men. It gives a few little stories, without going into too much detail about specifics. There is plenty of great video footage including a show stopping, incredible performance of "I Saw Her Standing There" from Washington. It's complete Mania, the clip felt claustrophobic, like you where crammed in there. The band played with incredible fire, fresh in America for the first time. The whole song was shown, letting the music speak for itself. It was the best part of the film as you could just feel pure Beatlemania, 53 years later. I felt like I was seeing them in that moment. You feel the excitement fade as the years go on, and by 1966 it's all gone.

There is a little bit of historical context with the climate of America at the time. Some of which was put in a bit sloppily, but it set the scene. It didn't describe music at the time though, but this movie is just about The Beatles. The archive clips of George and John are naturally inserted, and there are some good interviews with others, like Whoppie Goldberg, who told a nice story about Shea Stadium. Eight Days A Week was a nice watch. For a theater show, nothing outside of the concert clips made it that worthwhile, it could be enjoyed the same at home. But overall it was a good time, sadly a bit soured by the lack of the promised Shea Stadium footage.

Watched Elvis & Nixon.

It's a comedic film detailing and expanding on Elvis and Nixon's strange meeting in the oval office. Elvis, by 1971 is displeased with the day's youth and counter culture and wishes to go to the president to be badged a federal agent. To go undercover and "save the youth" from communist brain washing and drugs. After running through some hoops he ends up alone with Nixon which is where the film presents what might of happened between the two. It's a good idea but the film doesn't fulfill it's dramatic potential. It goes for the comedy route, and does well as many of the events, like Elvis trying to bring Nixon a commemorative gun and his general demeanor are actually true.

The film has a few deeper parts where Elvis expresses his conflicts, such as being unable to break away from his own image and continued grief over his dead at birth twin brother. By 1971 Elvis' career was declining once again. After spending the 60's in b-movie hell he had a short lived but triumphant comeback that sadly wasn't fully realized. The film shows a lot of the weird things he did, such as collecting badges from local police stations and watching multiple TVs on different channels. As a drama it's too funny to be taken overly serious, but Michael Shannon did a good job at portraying Elvis, even if he isn't 1/4th as good looking. Kevin Spacey's take on Nixon is also pretty funny. It was a good watch overall but it felt unsure of it's direction. The actual meeting of Elvis and Nixon is brief, but well played.

Elvis & Nixon could've been a compelling character drama and a good look into who Elvis was, but instead it stands as a funny but flawed watch.

Watched the Corpse Party live-action movie.

Being a fan of the original games, I've had some hard time with these other versions of the story that cut the plot shorter for time. One of the reasons I didn't like the anime - you didn't get the character build up or the progression to really care about the characters and what happens to them, and some plot twists were changed to something I wouldn't have preferred. All in all, the anime doesn't tell you all you need to know, and leaves you full of questions in the wrong way if you haven't played any of the games.

Knowing this, I knew I wasn't going to love this live-action movie. What I had seen prior looked like a bunch of a bit hammy actors in a setting that completely fails to capture the atmosphere of the games. I had been harsh in my judgment, but I wasn't that far off in the end. Some acting performances were good, but others, while not acting out the best script I've seen (and not on par with the writing of the original games), left the characters appearing often non-chalant towards the horrors happening all around them. As the train of plot was mercilessly driving forward, the characters weren't given time to show their emotions or share their story, also contributing to the fact that their deaths didn't move me at all.

The grim beauty of the original games is the fact that the game makes you moved by the characters, especially in the scenes portraying their life before the game takes place, and then rips them away from you in the ways most brutal. There's some amazing stuff plot-wise if you don't mind all the anime tropes and some a bit unbelievable behavior on the characters' part. The setting and the world is just plain awesome in my opinion - I love it.

Not so much in the movie, though. As the games touch upon alternate timelines and dimensions, the live-action movie has cut all of that out - but still they talk about them being in another dimension! This kind of stuff just comes off as just quickly brushing off the explaining of the plot, like: "Oh by the way, we're on an alternate plane of existence right now but let's not dwell on it, let's instead talk about how I'm jealous about you..."

I might be giving the live-action movie kind of a bad rap here, but I have to say I'm still glad I got to see it. Even if I was unintentionally amused by it and shaking my head, there were a couple of plot twists that were actually really good, like how Yuka ended up dying, for example. I LOVED the last 4 minutes of it, like the part where what was left of the group returned to the real world. The ending theme was pretty neat, too.  :glare:

TL;DR don't watch if you aren't a big fan of the games and/or the anime miniseries.

I watched The Force Awakens for the third time and the first time since it was in theaters. I wanted to post about it to contrast my fir impressions from last year.

After letting it sit for a while I will say the nostalgia bits still hit. Literally I welled up at many scenes this time, Star Wars is so powerful you play Han & Leia's theme or Binary Sunset while old man Han Solo is looking at the Falcon again...almost tears. However looking past the nostalgia and references and everything else the movie feels odd in it's place as a continuation. Did it need to be made? Does Star Wars need to continue? I think...screw it, why not. I just hope the coming movies will be good and give this all a feeling of purpose. When I saw this film it hit me like a hammer of feels because it's a whack load of fanservice. I was ready to publicly shed tears over the opening. But now with a clearer head I can see many of it's issues, but still enjoy it for what it is.

I like the new characters, Rey picks things up a little too fast but I still think she'll be a good lead. I like Kylo's role as the emo Darth Vader wannabe who isn't really all that scary or clear in his vision. Finn is likable but I found his sudden outburst in the not Mos Eisley scene kind of odd. I think compared to A New Hope things where not as well told or fleshed out. I hope with the coming films everything clicks together nicer, there is so much missing from this movie. Some of the directing can be odd or poorly done. The fight scenes are great but compared to Rogue One the action isn't half as good.

It's weird, since the prequels where my Star Wars films and I watched them tons along with the originals it all feels like Star Wars to me. So new films, which I won't watch as much, won't fit into that world as well I think. The Force Awakens is still good but I hope episode 8 picks it up.

Watched Kurt Cobain : Montage Of Heck. The documentary of his life with home video and all that.

Okay. One would not expect a film about Cobain to be happy but my word was this ever a depressing film. It succeeds in displaying a real honest and blunt view of the guy, letting home video, his own writings, art work and live performances do the talking. There are interview bits with family and close friends but the content fills up most of the 2 hour run time. It tracks and suggests reasons why he turned out how he did and plays off the whole Nirvana story like one big tragedy in motion. When we get to Nevermind we have his Mom saying how scared she was upon hearing the master tape, and then a montage of scenes from the Teen Spirit video while a slow choir version plays. That says it all.

This is not a fun, the history of Cobain type thing, once it gets to the heroin part it melts down and uses his sound collage clips and newly animated artwork to have these eerie and uncomfortable scenes. But the most telling part are the Kurt and Country home videos. Did you ever need to see two junkies talking about the Reading festival in the washroom, while one casually shaves and the other flashes her pancake nipples. That's not the only time this happens either. Did you ever need to see Cobain struggle to stay conscious, claiming to be tired not on drugs, while Courtney attempts to give their daughter a hair cut. Did you ever need to see...oh the list goes on.

There is nothing happy in this film after Nevermind, it all spirals down fast, telling a lot of the tale through newspaper and magazine clippings oddly enough. There where long segments of that and those home videos are so hard to watch, you laugh because you don't know how else to react. There is stuff in here the world did not need to see, but it all works to paint an image of Cobain. One that he's a figure who should not be idolized or sainted. I like that this movie doesn't tell you that Nirvana changed music or Kurt was such an inspiration, it just played it straight and man it was rough. Good watch.

Yes I read that before watching. Doesn't seem like the most likable of people that guy, get the same vibe from other interviews I've seen. I don't know, it's easy to frame these things in different ways. The home videos speak for themselves in the movie. Naturally just the worst and ugliest ones seem to have benen chosen but who knows. The drama was cranked in parts.

Could it be all bs...who knows. Did Cobain just make up those stories into talk into a tape recorder for fun, maybe. Of course his death conspiracy as well. This movie makes an effort to try debunk that. It's all hazy with strong opinions on both sides, regardless the film shows how badly the sudden success of Nevermind and the tags put on him had an effect.

I was talking about Buzz in that second line eh. He just seems like a guy who words things strongly. But Kurt ya, the film did well to show he is not some great idol or hero as a person. He just made damn good music at the exact right time. 

But I get it with Kurt. You watch that little guy in a shabby sweater on the Teen Spirit video. By the end he is one of the crowd. I can see how people can find themselves in him because of his expression. People want to find something like that in artists, but it gets taken too far at times. I've met someone who made some comments that really put me off Nirvana for a while. It's unfortunate. I sure am loving Nirvana and such, but I don't hold Kurt in esteem for anything but his incredible music.

Lars just has that odd way of talking to. I certainly don't dislike him, it's just too easy to make fun of him.
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: 50 Words for Paipis on March 13, 2017, 12:52:15 AM
No, I know you were talking about Buzz. My second line was addressed to that, how Buzz and a lot of metal people have this overly aggressive rhetoric, where Lars seems like a nice guy. First one was about you talking about how Kurt is sort of idolized, which, yeah, I agree with.

A lot of people look for that in art, but forget that artists are expressing their own thoughts and feelings and not the listener's. With that mindset, either people tend to be influenced far too easily by the art they experience or they sugar-coat an artist's life and work to fit their standards or they reject any artist who doesn't reflect their own beliefs and standards. Kurt himself was especially the kind of artist who wrote for no one else, and made that very clear by alienating people with lyrics and song titles like "I Hate Myself and I Wanna Die." He never meant to be an icon. Courtney Love either.
Title: Re: The last movie you have watched
Post by: Manimal on March 13, 2017, 01:15:50 AM
Ah message board struggles.

Good points, Kurt's lyrics where not for a generation at all. He happened to have those classic lines like "here we are now entertain us" but a lot of Nevermind is just word play and whatever the hell. I don't think "The black sheep got black mailed again, forgot to put on the zip code" for instance means a thing, tho it is a good line anyway. Atleast, another artist in that Hot Topic worship pile, John Lennon, wrote for people and seeked that icon status, using his fame to promote good causes. Still John is lumped in with Cobain as a sugar coated artist when he might've done worse things to other people, Kurt just taking it out on himself. Just another t-shirt to our generation in a way, though that comment is a little off base.

I never really thought of that though how some artists like Bruce write for themselves but also in ways others can relate to. His music is built from that connection, which is why I love it so much because I can understand and thrive for something as beautiful as the, well we just have each other, we're not perfect but it's enough, love story in "Thunder Road". But Nirvana is so clearly just Kurt's feelings exploding.

The whole Cobain story is really quite an interesting and depressing tale. It's not wonder the people who where there don't look back on it so fondly. Also I can't listen to "Love Buzz" without thinking of that dude and his hair anymore. It's like the phrasing is, can you feel my love, Buzz?

I just saw Get Out; truly a masterpiece. I have never seen a movie as creative and unique as Get Out. Not only is the message it delivers strong, but the delivery of that message is just mind-blowing. Here I was thinking Jordan Peele was just some funny guy from MadTV and Key & Peele. Now I know that's he's a genius writer and director.

Watched Ghost In The Shell.

In short, it was good!

I don't remember much of the original, nor did I connect or understand it fully when I saw it. This version certainly made a lot more sense and told the story rather well. The pacing was good and it was a fairly compelling and engaging experience. The visuals where outstanding, completely amazing. There are so many dense and beatiful shots here, such as the night bits and the whole city in general.

Scarlet Johanssen was fantastic as the Major, she looked great and fit the role becoming more human as the film progressed. There was a good balance of action and overall it was something I enjoyed a lot. As someone not as familiar and affectionate towards to original I found it to be just fine.

I would recommend anyone who liked the trailers to see the film. It was worth it for me.

I don't like the fact that GITS only made $19 million box office. Once again, anime doesn't sell in Hollywood.

I just saw Rogue One. Wow, a suicide mission which was actually a suicide mission. I'm so glad I wasn't spoiled before watching the movie. Ending was epic.

My brother said the cheesiest line ever. He wished that Princess Leia would have said, "a new hope" instead of just "hope".

Just finished watching Alien Covenant. One word review: pretentious. Two word review: already done. Three word review: It's a firecracker. Four word review: slow build, short ending. Five word review: suffers from already established tropes.

Final thoughts: never understood the hype. I think Prometheus was better overall. Too many characters for a monster film. It's easily a free stream movie choice to watch at home.

Funny observations

I Just saw John Wick 2. The movie had a weird something around it. The story was weak but, like my brother said, it's a throwback to early action films. The action was cool, clothes were awesome ( I love suites), character diversity was noticed and appreciated, I like that they actually kill women and not just let them go. The climax was fu----ck----ing awesome. I was like "the John Wick I know will shoot him there" and bang, he did it. I forgot the pencil kill, that was interesting  :-\.

One thing I didn't like was that everyone is an assassin. 

If there is go to be a third movie, I'll watch it.

I saw Life today and i am extremely disappointed. The entire run was boring. The alien concept was your basic premise you would see in any sci fi channel movie. The deaths had no weight.

The ending was unexpected, except i saw it coming.

When i got drunk the other day, i saw Batman Vs Superman and i enjoyed it. My brother said it was the extended version. I wonder what my reaction would have been if i saw what people in theaters saw. I had the same problems everyone and their mother had. Except i didn't really care as much. I was drunk after all.

Just watched Wonder Woman...

Oh my God. They did it. There's a good DC movie again  :o

Great film, it was focused and told the story fairly well (mostly), lots of cool action sequences and Wonder Woman just being really cool. I was unsure from Batman v Superman but Gal Gadot did a remarkable job here, she really sold the role and there was good chemistry between the characters. A good bit of humor to break things up and the general theme of mankind having the choice and everyone fighting their own wars, that was all effective and didn't feel forced or totally rubbed in your face.

There where bits where I found the effects to be a little off putting, but I overall came out of the film with a very good feeling. It was an emotional end and again, it was nice to see a superhero movie that is just about one superhero. I don't watch many movies but it's better then most superhero films I've seen in the last few years, sans Deadpool. Cool super action, decent side characters and an overall focused and enjoyable film. Nice.

Got to see Pirates 5 with some guys from work. Definitely not as good as the original trilogy (obviously not as good as the first one). But I think I enjoyed it more than the fourth one. The ghosts actually felt threatening, and it was nice to see some crazy supernatural stuff happening. Not that the last one didn't have it, but it was a lot more tame than straight up pirate hunting ghosts.


It made me realize though, is that what made the first one so good? was the excellent sword fights. They felt real and meaningful, and we're just a joy to watch. Hopefully the series will get back to them at some point.

Watched Bob Dylan : Don't Look Back. 

It's a collection of footage from his 1965 UK tour, shot and pieced together like it's on a Super 8 it goes from scene to scene without any sort of narrative or progression, it's just someone documenting the tour. No one even acknowledges the camera, the whole time not a single person even looks at it. There are many scenes of lengthy banter between Bob and reports, fans, and touring crew.

A group of young girls give him grief for having a band on his at the time recent single Subterranean Homesick Blues. Bob completely destroys someone from Time magazine and goes on a massive rant. There's a greasy moment where the slimy looking manager argues with someone from the BBC for more money. Bob has a tense and confrontation conversation with some random guy and makes him sort of explore his feelings in a way. The best part is when Bob starts yelling over someone who broke a glass or something. There's a room full of people and he's just shouting with his shades on.

The footage can be boring but those conversations and confrontations where very interesting and give you a look into what Bob was like at the time. You see Joan Baez casually be amazing in a hotel room, just playing some songs while Bob sits at a typewriter. Donovan plays some kind of cheesy song and is destroyed when Bob gets the guitar and performs one of his best ever songs It's All Over Now, Baby Blue. It was cool to see this stuff. With Bob and Joan you really feel how great they are at singing when you see these clips. 

There are some concert clips, we see this real human moment of excitement and pay off after the climax where he performs at Royal Albert Hall. Bob at this time was one of the coolest humans alive. He looks effortlessly awesome with his messy hair, black clothes and sunglasses. When he performs with the black and white footage and you only see his face, guitar, hands and such, it's amazing. He is the first person you notice among a swarm of Beatle cuts.

It was a good watch for something so personal and real feeling. Only for those who like Bob however. The 3 hour documentary of his best years up to 1966 is amazing as well. One of the best if not the best music documentaries I've seen.

This shot was amazing to me. Bob just playing alone at the Royal Albert Hall. Everyone in the audience is dead quiet just listening to his words. One of those...no matter what I do in life I will never be as cool as this moments. It's one of those things that makes me question what I'm doing with my music.

Just came back from experiencing Dunkirk. It's was an overall great film. It won't pass many progressive narrative tests but what do you expect from the source material. I watched it in IMAX and I really have to say, 90% of the movie is dependent on the sound. This movie will suck if you watch it at home. Maybe that's why Christopher Nolan said Netflix sucks.

I just don't know if people will get the brotherhood of humanity theme or just process the military should be admired for their bravery like some military movies I've come across.

Seriously no homo, but the blonde Brit pilot, not Tom Hardy, was freaking handsome.

I was expecting to shed some tears, since Nolan movies always somehow do so, but it was a little one this time.

Got to see baby driver last night, and let me tell y'all, you really just need to go in expecting it to be a movie length music video, cause that's what it is really. Still very enjoyable to watch though. It has definitely convinced me that Edgar Wrights next movie should just be a straight up musical.

Spoiler
Spoiler time though: there were some real missed opportunities with this plot though. Especially between Baby and Debora. Like, Baby lost his mom at a young age, he goes to a diner where his mother used to work, he meets a woman who looks like his mother, sings like his mother, and calls him Baby just like his mother. He immediately falls in love with her and yet they somehow don't spin it off into an oedipus thing. Perhaps there was a deleted scene, or maybe it was meant to go unspoken, but I felt like they should have at least mentioned it.

I think I've let the Death Note movie sit long enough to develop a conclusion.

So with different adaptations one has to wonder, if it's different is it bad by default? If you watch this hoping to find the anime scene by scene then you will be disgusted as the basic concept and idea of the story is twisted, completely destroyed and crushed under the foot of the America film cliche. This is not even the same genre, it's a horror film basically. One can tell right away when instead of killing criminals with heart attacks we get to watch over the top, silly and completely unnecessary scenes of campy and cheesy violence with blood spraying all over everything. 

So I suppose we shouldn't focus on what changes, because this is different fair enough. We would be here all day if we talked about how Misa Misa was turned into a weirdly emotionless psychopath who has no second thought to encourage the killings after she is shown this weird notebook, how Light completely lacks what makes him Light and how the conflict with L is completely destroyed in the first encounter. Whatever, this film as a film is just okay. It's not the worst thing ever, but it's not very good either.

There is a lot of, I am a character let me tell you my history in one long speech. The drama can be a bit much, and I don't know, it wasn't a great film to look at either. Nothing about the visuals here did anything for me, the camera work was odd with some off putting shots. The casting was...eh. Naked Brothers guy was not great as Light, he delivered his lines really awkwardly. William Dafoe was naturally great as Ryuk, of course he would be. The guy who played L was fine also, this L is a lot more nervous and jumpy it felt like. But the actor got his mannerisms down fairly well.

The choice to use soft 80's pop songs is...just weird. It feels like some strange ironic thing, more puzzling then cool. The big action set pieces where overdone, the big plan at the end was atleast a little Death Note-ish but overall I was left going...whatever. They tried, it feels like there was an effort here to make an American vibe Death Note. It lacked basic understanding of the original and ruined the chance for L and Light to have their showdowns, which was absolutely the best part of Death Note.

ALSO IT WAS SET IN SEATTLE AND THEY DIDN'T USE HEART SHAPED BOX. YOU PRICKS. YOU GET THIS 80'S STUFF BUT DON'T PLAY HEART SHAPED BOX IN A DEATH NOTE MOVIE SET IN SEATTLE. YOU HAD THE BEST CHANCE OF ALL TIME IT WOULD'VE MADE THIS MOVIE A PERFECT 10. I mean you never hear Nirvana music in movies and stuff because Cobain would likely roll in his grave BUT STILL.

So I don't know, I'm not outraged or mad at this film. I think it could've been good but they rushed. It should've been a TV series. I understand they want to make something a general audience will like so they have the violence and the drama and the familiar tropes. But I feel it was not pulled off very well. Putting aside it as Death Note, it is still just a pretty okay film with some flaws.

It's not Dragon Ball Evolution of course.

Watched The Jerk for the second time, I liked it the first time but it was even better this viewing.

I like the 70's comedies. The Jerk takes it's time and has an interesting structure with a series of seemingly unrelated events that come together in the end. The jokes are creative and Steve Martin, while acting like a goof, does a good job in the role, selling the character well. It's goofy but aside from the owl head moment and cat juggling it's not too much. Comedies of this era really move slower, I like when films have longer shots and aren't so focus on packing in cheap jokes. This movie sets things up and pays them off later. Enjoyable watch.

Watched Platoon for a second time

I've seen few war movies, certainly none better then this. A great tale, not of one side versus the other, but of the nature of man itself. The NVA are not the villains of the film, evil instead appears in nearly all the characters. This makes things all the more horrifying. Our main character starts as a volunteer from a rich family of veterans and we watch the influence of the barbaric actions all around take hold of him, and bring out the worst in him. It's just a harsh and brutal story of human nature. The NVA aren't even characters in the film, there is only one scene where we see them talk or plan things out.

It's not a fun movie to watch, the village scene is brutal, and the final conflict is just a big mess. There is no slo-mo and grand music, it's just gun shots, screaming and explosions. The approach is quite well, with a lot of tension in early parts of the movie. The acting is great, with stand out performances across the board. We all know the famous scene where William Dafoe is gunned down, the best moment in the film. But Charlie Sheen is actually really good here, he has a great arc with a lot of ugliness. The lack of music in combat scenes let's you take things in better, as does the overall pacing. An overall great film.

I watched Naked Gun again right before it...hard to think of it much after Platoon. But it is a solid comedy with a lot of fun clever jokes. Though the baseball scene is a bit too long, it's not perfect but enjoyable anyway.

Rewatched Fubar, still a classic film. One of the best comedies for sure, it's a very effective no budget mockumentary of two very really feeling characters. Two hosers chill out and one of them has cancer in his balls so he gets to enjoy his last weekend with two testicles. It doesn't even seem like either of them are acting, these are the classic drunk headbanger Canadians. So many brilliant moments of improv with the profound line about every year your death anniversary goes by without you knowing it. The acting is really natural and it works to make something really stupid and greatly amusing. So much gold in this movie, the same appeal as early Trailer Park Boys.

What prompted me to rewatch it was the new TV series that started. I don't think it'll last too long, Fubar was really a one time thing. It felt real the first time but now they are overly defined as characters. The idea of them starting the Alberta wildfires is amusing but the internet gimmick is pretty old by this point, not helping with some of the awkward flat jokes. I mean it's 2017, Terry and Deaner don't have Internet at home but the idea of them discovering this magic now is such an early 2000's thing.

Then I was like, I'll rewatch the first Cheech and Chong. Bad idea, it's not a very good movie after all. Poor structure, incompetent narrative and in general a real lack of good jokes. There are bits of giggles here and there but long stretches of staring at the screen going "okay". I know the appeal is to get stoned and chuckle over it, but really it's one of the most effective anti-drug movies there is. As I recall the sequels are no better.

The Last Jedi: Say what you will about how Luke does things "out of character," based on movies that take place decades before, the internal character development of this film is much better than that of The Force Awakens. All of the pivotal moments in this film feel earned. On the other hand, the tone feels inconsistent, where The Force Awakens' tone was a bit more consistent. Also, I feel Abrams got better performances from the actors. There were some visually beautiful moments, but not necessarily a consistent visual aesthetic, which I'm not sure is a good or bad thing. There was a lot in this movie, so it's kind of hard to parse fully, but, all in all, I liked the moments where Rian Johnson committed to his own vision more than the things he did to please fans and kids. Then again, the cross-generational aspect was a big theme in the film, so it makes sense. The jury's still out for me on a lot of things though.

The Master: One of Jonny Greenwood's best soundtracks, some great performances, some great visuals, but never becomes more than "good." Feels almost like collage rather than a chain of events, not more than the sum of its parts. Still good, but definitely not as good as the other Paul Thomas Anderson film I've seen, There Will Be Blood, which may well be my favorite film of the noughties.

Watched The Polka King

A Netflix original film about the true story of Jan Lewan, a Pole who comes to America to be a polka star but also run a ponzi scheme. The main punch of the film is that all the silly antics, from arranging a meeting with the Pope and making a polka rap song after being in jail, are all true and also Jack Black. Of course he is great in this movie, and plays the role of this charismatic con artist Pole very well. The rest of the cast does fine as well, and in general it's a well acted film.

The comedy is pretty light, it's mostly just on the "oh this is real" kind of level. The film never gets too silly, or makes too many jokes. There where not many scenes where I laughed or did the quiet "haha grin". In scenes where you expect satire like the over the top Proud To Be American song scene there is no humor. I think this approach to things was atleast interesting, instead of making the movie too ridiculous. Jack Black does feel like the real guy in this movie, you only see the character here. You don't feel like you're watching an actor be silly.

In the end the film doesn't leave you with much, it's just like oh...that was an amusing story. Even in what should be serious moments, it's never too dramatic because the character is this kind of "everything is alright" guy. Once more, Jack Black does extremely well in portraying this outrageous real person, and while the film is not overly funny it's atleast entertaining. Certainly it feels like a small time Netflix movie.

HBO's 3 hour special Elvis Presley : The Searcher

A documentary built of only old videos & footage with additional footage of Graceland that paints a picture of Elvis' character from the beginning and end of his life. Different people are interviewed to piece together the story, and it tries to present the importance and impact Elvis had, along with how his career decisions affected him, and what motivated and inspired him throughout. For this the movie does, and it's easy to paint an image of Elvis with what is presented. Sort of a tragedy of a good natured kid with a pure love of music who is exploited and milked to death. Unlike other documentaries of the kind, there is no narrator nor video footage of the people like Bruce, Tom Petty etc. who are interviewed. 

It's really only a film for people who like Elvis, it starts kind of boring with a lot of "it was so brilliant" type endless praising. But by the army period things get interesting. There is not a ton of new things to see here, but it's a worthwhile documentary in it's presentation. More dramatic then I thought, and it all anchors around the 68' Comeback Special, climaxing with the incredible performance of "If I Can Dream", one of the most raw and honest things he ever did. Elvis is worth remembering fondly, and I hope he is not written off in the future. The documentary does glance over a few things though to keep with it's narrative of Elvis as a tragic character, but it shows the brilliance of his music when it was brilliant quite well.

I also watched Rumble : The Indians Who Rocked The World

A documentary that goes over native peoples impact on Rock/contemporary music. Focuses on key artists like Redbone, Buffy, Link Wray, Randy Castillo, even Jimi Hendrix. It's an interesting tale that is virtually unknown, there are a couple neat tidbits here and the ways it suggests some traditional native sounds carried over to Rock and Pop. It was a little clumsy I feel, and missed some bands like Blackfoot but you can't have everyone (nothing from Northern Ontario either, although that is nearly as obscure as Canadian music gets). Regardless, it's a good topic to make a documentary on, and trace some roots of Rock n' Roll further then what we commonly know while going over the artist's struggles with their own identity. It makes you think of an element in Rock music that you would have never considered before anyway. Not bad, you may learn a thing or two from watching it.

Watched Infinity War last night.

The most impressive thing this movie is make you realize the feat which was pulled off for the last decade. I haven't seen the majority of Marvel movies, not counting Deadpool, nothing since the last Avengers for me (a movie I enjoyed then completely forget about entirely). But what a project, and what a great spectacle it all is. Me and my friend watched Iron Man at the show in 2008, and there we where yesterday watching this movie, it's like man. Makes you think of the time that has passed and the times in your life when the other movies came out, like the first Avengers in 2012 and so on. These are just big super movies, spectacles as I said. This film is just an event, something you would only want to see in a theater. and it's an event that has never been pulled off before.     

It's a good film, enjoyable and with the right tone. You know what you're getting with these movies by now. It's the right time to end things, and for part 1 this is a great way to go out. However the overall quality depends on part 2, and where they decide to go. In short it's a theater movie you watch for the spectacle and cool factor, and because man, they did it. 10 years and they pulled it off.

Spoiler
Now I can imagine some cheap out end where everyone is brought back to life with the gauntlet, even people in the audience where saying "they're just going to come back in the next movie". Still this film does well making you feel the heroes are hopeless. Thanos was done so well, since he appeared so much we had time to understand his character as he laid out his very clear motives. There was impact in his scenes and he was more then some purple raisin man. The Guardians really helped this movie, every scene with them was very enjoyable especially when they met the rest of the cast.   

The scenes on Wakanda where cool as was that wicked Phantom Menace done better fight. Where they're all just running and stuff, I wish it was a little longer. The lack of Hulk was disappointing but I suppose they are saving that for the next part. The Thor axe scene was great, and I like all the planets and setting it presented. Spider-Man was quite good, I still cannot see anyone in the role besides Tobey, not saying he should be playing a high school kid at his age, but you know. 

I think screen time was well split, it felt like a lot of movies at once but it all kind of worked in it's own way. It was good, I just hope part 2 continues much the same. It will really pay off then.

I watched The Ritual (2018). Pretty run of the mill horror movie I guess although it didn't really feel like one ever. It felt more like a thriller. The acting is okay, not great. The story is a bit weak. The creature design is really cool though. I felt like the movie set up a lot of things it didn't really deliver on but I'd watch it for the creature design alone. Not a great movie by any means but not terrible.

By horror movie standards I'd say it's above average.

Watched Bohemian Rhapsody.   

I didn't intend to but it just kinda happened. It's an enjoyable big Rock 'n Roll biopic, it's a fairly sanitized look at Freddie that gets into some things but never goes too deep or too dramatic. The focus is more on the fabulous character of Freddie, while it does have his struggles it feels like a lot of issues are just kind of simple. Which actually is kind of nice in a movie like this, it doesn't amp up the melodrama or focus too long on some things. It's not going to give you the down and dirty on Freddie and Queen but it does give a fairly enjoyable and by the end inspiration look into his story.

The movie ends on a high note and it's something that focuses more on Freddie's time in Queen then his whole history. Rami Malek does a good job as Freddie, putting on the big show. All the actors looks the part, probably the most amazing part was the Brian May guy's hair, it didn't even look like a wig. In general the performances where good and the movie has a decent tone. It's not super heavy on drama, which is nice in this kind of movie. You have the big character of Freddie and the rocking anthems of Queen over it all. It was pretty cool to hear how great the songs sounded in the theater, it's strange. Out of every rock band Queen likely has the most known and well carried over songs. I don't think even the Beatles have as many songs the generations and average person knows so well. 

The movie is good for a sort of uplifting biopic that focuses on the character and energy of Freddie. It's not a big drama or anything, just a fun movie to watch and enjoy. I kind of dread the tread of biopics this will set, like who the hell asked for an Elton John biopic? Who cares? I know there have always been lots of biopics, and most aren't this enjoyable, but not just any artist warrants one.

Watched Springsteen On Broadway.

Bruce performs and tells stories for 2 and a half hours by himself. He switches from guitar to piano and tells stories in-between and during key songs that highlight his life. Based around his book, he loosely tells old stories in some kind of order and connects songs from across his career with them. Bruce is good at telling stories and keeping a fun vibe, it's kind of surprising how he takes down himself as someone removed from his music. He cuts himself personally out of his songs with some of his rants and has a kind of silly attitude at times. 

It's old Bruce so he's more reflective then anything, it's like the songs he made where always motivated and moved by something, and his best music taps into those intense burning feelings we all have and he himself once had. Now he is just kind of, looking back on that and how it connects to his own story. The best moments are the songs he plays straight. "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" with his speech about Clarence was great. "The Rising" reveals itself as a gospel song which isn't as obvious as the lyrics suggest. "The Promised Land" was fantastic, I love that song very much, and though his acoustic performances will always lack something, "Thunder Road", "Born To Run" and "Dancing In The Dark" sounded good.

Now it falters here and there. The bit with Patti was not good. He hypes her up as a great singer but all she does is back-ups on two songs from Tunnel Of Love. and she doesn't sound all that good either. "Born In The USA" is done as a just vocals raw blues track...it was not great. A few other meh choices as well. But the highlights are pretty good and though it runs on it's worth a watch, but only if you care about Bruce. It won't sell you otherwise. 

He should've played "Walk Like A Man" but whatever

I watched Alita: Battle Angel.
My score: 7.5/10

I hate first acts in these types of movies. They always do it where it just seems too fast. Which is the problem with this movie, too much to shove in without elaborating on key scenes or beats.

I don’t know if I was in the minority where her eyes were never a problem. But, character designs all around were cool.

Action was cool. Some very cool fights.

But the ending, come on. Not good for mainstream audiences. It’s two movies in one, or they needed another twenty minutes to add more emotional tolls so we can actually feel for some characters.

Watched Loving You (1957), Elvis' first full on movie.

Elvis plays Deke, some delivery boy in small town Texas who randomly goes onstage with some band one day and finds his way to stardom with a manipulative manager who creates scandals to get him famous. It's vaguely a tale of Elvis' career, in some ways, that kind of says, there's nothing dangerous about Rock 'n Roll music, it's just what the kids like. "Deke" convinces the old people he's okay in the end after his big city concert is shut down and, honestly the plot was just not done very well. Bad pacing and story telling, not to mention the lack of chemistry between actors. Elvis has some vague love interest who's this country girl, and there's this theme of small town versus big city mindset and the rise to fame of this good ol' country boy, but none of it is told well.   

The movie was only good for some old fashion slang phrases and seeing Elvis in his prime. There's a big ol' fight scene in a restaurant and a couple song sequences which range from good, Teddy Bear, Got A Lot O' Living To Do, to mediocre, Lonesome Cowboy, Hot Dog.  Elvis gets explosive in some scenes, it's funny whenever he suddenly gets angry. There is some weird story element of how his whole family died in a house fire so he ran to a graveyard and found a tombstone for "Deke Rivers" and took on that name. Honestly this movie was boring and the story was not told very well. It's not even worth watching for the cheese value. I like to watch these movies for the dialogue and the sets. The only good looking scene was the brief part in the country. This one isn't worth watching aside from the phrase "dinglehopper".

Rewatched Superman II

Oof. The first movie, while dated by today's standards, still holds up as a great film with a lot of heart and in my opinion Christoper Reeves did the best superhero performance of all time. He truly seemed like a...super man in that movie, and was also a perfect Clark. The original Superman is the definitive superhero movie. Superman 2 I remembered as the best one, I watched it maybe a decade ago. But upon rewatching it...the movie is even more dated than the first. 

It scales up, with 3 villains who can truly challenge Superman and there are some action scenes that must've been cool at the time. The movie is almost a comedy, intentionally, Lex is ridiculous in this film. There are a lot of flat scenes and things you can't question too much. The most iconic Superhero theme ever made is still here, though John Williams is no longer the composer for the movie. Overall Superman II shows us how far we've gone in the genre. It's still a fun campy movie, but it doesn't quite hold up the same as the first movie since it's a lot sillier. Christoper Reeves and Gene Hackman are both still really good in this movie however.

I rewatched The Dark Knight trilogy also to find, Batman Begins is boring. I've always though this, somehow I thought I'd like it more when I got older but now I find it dull and...stupid. The main plan is dumb, the pacing is off, and overall I don't think too highly of the film. The Dark Knight Rises didn't hold up as well for me either. I loved it when it came out, but now I find it too stupid and lacking logic in an otherwise super serious movie. But The Dark Knight will always be the best "superhero" movie ever, it's just a one of a kind magic film that is still amazing and will continue to be. I don't have too much to say that hasn't been said, the movie is always amazing.

Watched Avengers : Endgame   

In short it was kind of a letdown compared to Infinity War. It was not nearly as good, but given the massive feat of wrapping up 11 years of a movie universe in 3 hours I would say it did fine. The last movie was signifigantly better, but this one serves well enough as the big end. 3 hours went by like that. 

The juice...

Spoiler


Time travel killed the entire movie.

It was stupid. Killing Thanos so early ruined his character arc and bringing his past self back was merely a cheap ploy to have a big final fight that, while cool, was just a bunch of characters running around punching each other. Thanos was ruined, and the movie started on the wrong foot right away. They threw away any chance of living up to Infinity War by using the cheap time travel gimmick.

Hulk was horrible. He was done terribly in all these movies, and this was the killing blow. Captain Marvel is cardboard, she is void of any life or personality. But Thor is done so well in this movie. It's really quite a funny arc! and anything with the Guardians is gold. Iron Man's finale was excellent, as with Captain America, and Ant Man turned out to be the most important character.

Overall it was enjoyable and the ending was really good. But the time travel element took me out of it. I can look past it but it's so unsatifiying given how great Infinity War was. That was a real epic. This one is just tying it all together. It was a big task to do, and it was done well enough in a short time. I am just let down by what they did to Thanos. They had something great in the last movie that they destroyed in the first 30 minutes here.

Why time travel is cheap.

Why killing Thanos ruined his character

Why hulked was ruined.

I’m curious how you can back up these claims.

Note: Cool it. It's unescessary to make a topic to call out someone, 'proving' opinions isn't a thing. Opinions are opinions. 


Also I found EG a masterpiece. That's my opinion.

Any discussion on this please mark with spoilers. Too important a film to spoil.

Wow, that is, somehow a horrible thing to say.

Backing up an opinion is necessary.

When does an opinion mean you are free to say something without backing it up? There has to be some internal mechanism that got you there.

Ex.
Opinion: People suck.
Me: why?
Opinion: because they do.
Me. Okay, why?
Opinion: oh, it’s easy, because they do.

I’m not even defending endgame. I just want to hear/read a coherent argument.

My opinion. I’m tired of living in a world where people make baseless claims.

Why?

Because information, either false or misunderstood, gets pushed to others without actual critical thought.

Now, imagine a world where ideas were actually founded by some sort of reasoning. It doesn’t have to be fact, it’s Art!!! But you can’t make claims without a coherent argument.

Lol, I'm casually stating my opinion on a big ticket blockbuster movie. I made a post to myself, I wasn't aiming it at anyone, nor seeking to make any sort of argument or great statement beyond saying what I felt about the movie in short form. I'm not trying to convince anyone this way or that way. This isn't a review, this isn't an article. It's a casual opinion. You come at this in an entirely unnecessary fashion given the nature of my post. Instead of just asking me to explain things further in a normal way you gotta make some big stand about it just for the sake of it. I don't need to prove anything to you. If this was an article or formal review, that would be a different story. I don't need to explain further anything I think, but I will if asked.   

If people read my opinions and think it to be true without critical thought that's not my problem, that's an issue with the person themselves. I make my own opinions and I share them the way I do. It doesn't need to be an essay. I'm not Roger Ebert, I'm just some guy posting on a forum with a Mio avatar going on about a movie he saw yesterday.

I'll humor you only once more in this context. 

Spoiler
I find time travel to be a cheap gimmick to use to fix things in a story. At the end of Infinity War there is a big twist and a real shock. To fix this they use time travel to, bring all the characters back for a big final fight. The worst part is what they do to Thanos. He is brought back as the 2014 version of himself, who has merely seen the events of Infinity War without experiencing them.

Therefore Thanos' character arc does not continue from the last movie. He is seen in the beginning and instantly killed. When he comes back he is just his old self, it doesn't continue his story. Time travel was used as an easy way to bring back all the characters and Thanos for a final fight, which was already done perfectly fine in the last movie. They made a less epic version of the last fight in Infinity War and used time travel, with a more "indepth" explanation, to fix all of this so the movie didn't end in 30 minutes. 

If Thanos didn't destroy the infinite stones in the beginning of the movie the Avengers could've simply found him, killed him and snapped everybody back. So to make the movie longer they had him destroy them and then used time travel so the characters could go back to the past, collect everything again, and have a giant fanservice ending with all the characters from 11 years of the franchise can fight alongside each other against a PAST version of Thanos.

This is how I feel they killed Thanos' character arc. He does not move along in this movie, he is instantly killed and his old self is brought back to the end. It didn't carry on from the last movie in that regard. I don't know how they could've had this movie without killing Thanos, since again it would end in the first act, but I didn't like how they reversed the big shock of Infinity War using time travel, which to me feels cheap. Like an easy fix. 

As for Hulk I've just never liked this version of his character. I get it, he is a man afraid of his alter ego, and he ends up conquering this by Endgame. But to me Hulk is a cool green guy who smashes stuff up and is kind of dumb. The best part with Hulk in Endgame was the flashback to Avengers where he goes down the stairs. That is the Hulk I like, the real Hulk! This wimpy reigned in Hulk doesn't do it for me, it's not what I think of when I think of the character. I didn't like the movie we got out of him and I've not connected with the character in this version of things. I'm no Hulk historian, I watched the 2003 movie once in theaters and watched the old show a bit. I just wanted to see a cool Hulk smash it up, instead we saw boring Bruce in an Iron Man suit kind of punch things. There was no awesome Hulk moments in these movies.

Finally watched The Godfather I & II

Took me long enough, my Mom has been trying to get me to watch these movies for a very long time. I can say it simply, the first movie is amazing, wow. It really did blow me away. I love in movies of old when there is not a lot of flash and the pace is slower, allowing the characters and scenes to breath. The dialogue is top notch here and the acting is in a tier of it's own. These are not actors, they are simply the characters in the movie. Al Pacino is insane in both of these movies. Micahel's character arc is so strong, watching him transform into the man his father was by the end of Part II. Every scene with Pacino in Part II is amazing, his presence and expressions are killer. and Marlon Brando in the first, what needs to be said. It's all so natural and the movie with it's slow pace allows us to get to know these characters. The scene in the garden stood out, since Brando doesn't even seem like he's acting, he simply became a Nonno.

There is such great tension in the first movie, the horse head scene was the first part where it gets real. The restaurant scene was a masterwork of cinema. Maybe one of the best movie scenes I've ever seen! The extreme tension in the interaction and Pacino's face before he makes his first kills, the contemplation with the roaring train in the background, it was such a crazy scene! This movie feels so real. The part in Sicily was a little bit weird compared to the rest though, but by the end I was left with little to say, the movie was simply the masterpiece it was made out to be. Loved it.

Part II I am more divided on. Both movies I need to rewatch as some of the characters where hard to tell who was who, and it got a bit confusing, especially in #2, and I didn't understand why there where flashbacks but then you realize it's to show how Vito became the Don and how Michael becomes just like him by the end. Wow, Pacino was so good in this movie. The scene where Kay tells him she got an abortion, and the IN MY HOUSE bit, he sold every minute with just the smallest of expressions. and man, he just looked insanely badass. Lee Strasberg was really good as Roth, the scene where he talks to Michael while the games on, and that natural relaxed feeling he brings. Of course there is the conflict with Michael and Fredo made for a memorable ending to the movie. I didn't think Part II was as solid as the first, I didn't understand a few things, but by the end I was left feeling both movies where a strong character story on Michael, and it's been a while since I watched a movie and had this feeling.

The first movie is so good it's insane. I love these old 70's movies and the sensibility they where filmed on. A New Hope, Rocky, Superman, it's a different pace and it breathes. I was so engaged in every single scene of the first movie. I loved the tone and the world it built. Part II was a little boring but it had some amazing scenes. It turns out The Godfather is as essential a movie as it's been made out to me, especially if you're of Italian ancestry and you feel like you're a super wop after watching it even though you're basically a mangiacake, but in general. Floored by the first movie, still felt the second was good, just a bit harder to follow. 

Also Scarface

This movie was pretty great also. It had a perfect tone of being actually funny and then really tense. Of course it does the classic 80's thing with the synths to make tension, which is kind of dated, but it doesn't really effect things. There is even an 80's song montage in here. Pacino is remarkable in this movie, once again becoming a character who feels natural. There are so many great dialogue scenes. Of course the ending is classic and a fitting conclusion, even if the Bolivian Terminator was corny with his slow walk and sunglasses. This movie was perfectly over the top where it's not too silly. The say goodnight to the bad guy and bath scenes where the best besides the ending for me. I thought it was a really enjoyable movie, which balanced it's tone very well. It seems like all the over the top shoot 'em up movies continued from here.
