    Oh, please, no. They've ruined so many series, but please, not Macross :( . As far as I know the only Mecha series they want to turn into a Hollywood blockbuster is Evangelion. Even though Steven Spielberg is directing it, it'll probably suck.

    So how bad was G.I. "meh"?

    I saw "In Bruges" last Saturday, I really liked it, specially since I've been there. Still, the movie is quite good, and Colin Farrel, was, even though it's hard to believe, excellent! :kickass:

    I have to second that opinion. In Bruges is actually a really good movie, even though Colin Farrel is in it. It's kind of dark, funny, strange.

    Saw Inglorious not too long ago, it was pretty damn excellent...

    Inglourious Basterds

    Very chatty and dare I say even boring at times although manages to build up tension through-out, definite signature Tarantino elements, a few funny moments, great leads by Christoph Waltz and Brad Pitt, some strange decisions in storytelling in a negative sense (cuts the potential effect of the twists and turns) - as a movie (and entertainment) it was way too long to be seen in a theatre and fails finding a balance between the storytelling elements and story. It’s still a “OK” film but could’ve been way better.

    Yes, Colin Farrel was brilliant! He can be a good actor if he wants to.

    Inglorious Basterds hasn't arrived here yet, maybe in a couple of months :rolleyes: .

    As did I (both the seeing and liking part). It's not just good despite Colin Farrel, it's even good partly because of him. And to think I thought his presence meant insta-suck.

    Hahaha yeah! His histrionic skills in this movie are brilliant. I just wanted to see it because it was In Bruges, but it turned out to be an excellent movie.

    I liked The Hangover too, not as funny (different type of humour) but still pretty good.

    I Sell The Dead
    Horror comedy about 2 graverobbers with a bunch of Cthulhian feeling thrown
    in the mix. If you like Shaun Of The Dead you will like this movie.
    Me? I loved it.

    A student just called "A Clockwork Orange" a "stupid pornographic shit"'; a comment I find totally hilarious (and not only because he spent the whole movie with his mobile) :lol:.

    Seppuku (Hitokiri in the USA version), a japanese chanbara from the 60's, starring the almighty Toshiro Mifune. Its an incredible movie about false pride, revenge and it leaves a moral. Really sweet.

    (500) Days of Summer. The story is kind of overdone, but the technique is extremely original and the final result is unexpectedly awesome.

    I really didn't like Inglorious Basterds at all, there's no point in having a good movie if you're just gonna destroy it with one (Kino) scene.
