So tomorrow I'm gonna watch The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Hopefully not a waste of my time.
Hopefully extended editions...
Black Dynamite - This one was pretty fun. They dropped some great lines in it.
Blue Velvet - Thought this one was pretty good. My first instinct was to criticize Dennis Hopper for over acting but it seemed to work out.
The Red Violin - No expectations going in and really liked it. Was just in the mood for a solid story.
Jennifer's Body - Figured I would hate it but it really had its own thing going and didn't take itself too seriously. Ended up actually liking it. And I know it's becoming fashionable to hate Megan Fox but I think she's smokin'.
went and saw Kick Ass the other day. By far the most enjoyable movie I've seen in quite some time. If you like movies with gratuitous violence and extremely foul mouthed little girls, then this is your movie
I hear some people bitching about Kick Ass now because of the little girl.
yeah a lot of people are pissed off about that. But they were having the same discussions when Leon/The Professional came out in the early 90s with Natalie Portman basically doing the same thing (but not as over the top/gratuitously). Also, at least Kick Ass doesn't have the subtle pseudo maybe pedophiliac tone as The Professional does
I haven't seen Leon yet either, which is on my list of movies I still want to see. I can't stand media saying stuff that it's a bad influence. Like hard rock bands getting blamed for school shootings, a South Park episode having too much profanity, and a video game having to much violence.
Surrogates - This felt like a blown opportunity to me with a few major things that made no sense but moved the simplistic story along.
I remember seeing trailers for that and having some hopes for it
This movie is phenomenal. There's maybe two pages of dialogue in the whole thing - the silence is so expressive. I love the twisted morality of it too, the honourable criminals and the ruthless police. If you like this, also make sure you check out Rififi Chez des Hommes (aka Rififi) - this has one of the most tense heist scenes ever filmed.
This was one of the worst films I've ever seen.
A Short Film About Killing - I don't like being a film nerd but seriously I could watch Kieslowski filming his grandmother making tea and it would still be riveting. This guy was just born with a gift for holding a camera.
thanks for the rec, challenge. I'll add it to the netflix queue
The Lower Depths - Not my favorite Kurosawa film. I like the premise, but found it difficult to get into.
Anyone here into silent films? I've been watching a lot lately. Focusing mainly on the 1910s right now, but I've seen a good amount of stuff from the 20s as well.
Only seen a few essentials: Chaplin, Nosferatu, Metropolis
Recently saw Moon; fantastic film.
Tonight I watched The Objective. I actually thought it was pretty decent.
Saw some of 2 Fast 2 Furious at a friends house. Besides the cars and Ludacris afro, it suck. Don't recommend.
