Rewatched Goldfinger recently - pretty much the definitive Bond movie, one of my favourite films.



Once upon a time in America- the kind of story telling you very rarely see in cinema. (partly because of time issues)

if you want to take 3 and a half hours to watch a movie, watch this movie.



I watched Youth in Revolt today. Started out as a pretty standard Michael Cera film, but turned for the better about 30 mins in when he introduces his more rebellious devil-may-care supplementary persona François Derringer. From then, it's just absolutely hilarious. Cera makes a great rebel, surprisingly.

America, we now have a 2-character Michael Cera, rather than one.



"michael cera movie" is a dictum already?

I watched Whiteout last night. Fairly standard whodunnit fare with the added bonus of Kate Beckinsale. It was set in Antarctica though, but they circumvented that problem by having a scene at the start where she slowly takes of all 20 layers of clothes and has a shower. I congratulate the writer.

License to Kill (1989) -- I was on something of a Bond-spree and I downloaded this one a few weeks ago, but didn't watch it until tonight.

Watched The Big Lebowski (1998) after a friend suggested it... I didn't really get anything spiritual out of it like some people do. It's just a movie.

Watched The Wizard (1989) because I wanted to see how awful it was. It was awful.

Both are recommended. Although I couldn't help to wonder whether the second was a subtle parody of the first. I mean, seriously?:D

Avatar. It may leave you with a feeling of being entertained, but you don't want to remember it too much afterwards lest problems with the movie start to become more distinct than anything it has to to offer in your memory.

But I couldn't help but to finally get pissed off when it won the Critics' Choice award for best action movie instead of District 9. I thought critics were supposed to be more discerning.

It was an alright movie. I always wondered why the aliens, if they were as smart as that one alien being, didn't just gang up, organise an army, use their kickass weapons and take over Johannesburg. Then they could've used it as a base to launch their subsequent attacks against the world.

As for a recent movie I really liked.. I recently watched Forrest Gump for the first time (technically I watched it before but only caught a middle portion). I loved it. So much.

Just watched Waltz With Bashir, and Israeli animated movie. It follows a Ari Folman as he attempts to uncover what part he played in the Sabra and Shatila massacre as a 19 year old infantryman in the invading IDF. I highly recommend watching this movie, poignant stuff.

The scene with the Israeli officer watching German porn in a palatial Lebanese home whole dispensing counter terror tips is priceless.

Watched District 9 on a long-haul plane journey recently. Thought it was okay but not great... the overly evil and experimental government seemed somewhat cliched, but then again maybe I've played too many video games.

Also saw Up, and thought it was entertaining but lacking something. Then again I was pretty tired and bored while viewing both of these movies, so maybe my opinion was somewhat biased against them.

Well, District 9 did have some serious plot holes. Does anyone really believe that a giant alien spaceship would just be left to "rot" on top of Johannesburg for 20 years?

The thing should have been teeming with scientists (and tourists). Also, didn't they originally cut a hole into it? I imagine it should have made interstellar travel just a bit more complicated...:mischief:

What gave you the impression that there weren't scientists who went up to it? And the inside didn't look too appealing to tourists. And what would anyone have done to remove a spaceship that big?

Also, we have no idea how the thing really flies in the first place, so whether the hole really matters or not is moot.

If you want big plot holes try Avatar.

Right, the majority of the prawns (with the exception of the main one who could read and understand the eviction notice) were some sort of unintelligent drone class who seemed to really only care about themselves.

I thought there were scientists in the ship :confused: Plus, it required the fuel developed by the main prawn and the controls section buried under district 9 to move the ship.

Yeah. Doesn't that have rather controversial implications if the movie was supposed to be an allegory for apartheid? :p

That's why we shouldn't compare movies with real life, folks, even if the movie does contain lessons for real life.

My wife and I watched Patton a while back. I had only seen bits and pieces before, and she hadn't seen any of it. We both enjoyed it. It certainly didn't feel like it was three hours long, though.

More recently (for Valentine's day) we went to see Crazy Heart. Kind of blah in my opinion; I guess the fact that it wound up with a very anticlimactic "happy" ending bugged me. Robert Duvall's singing was definitely the high point.

For reasons too complicated to get into, about a month ago I saw the movie Leap Year with Amy Adams. The problem with "chick flicks", I decided, is not that it is a bad genre but that it is full of formulaic rom-coms that are all a variant of the same ridiculous basic plot. Some woman whose only noticeable feature is that she is a shallow, materialistic yuppie (at least this movie mixes things up by putting her in Boston, not NYC) gets some guy to fall all over her for no good reason. And ditches her bland boyfriend, even though he is always more like her than the love interest. What, don't middle-class Midwestern women with personalities ever find love?

Also saw Definitely, Maybe, which is also a "chick flick" but a decent example of how to do one. Not completely formulaic.

I saw The Book of Eli last week and thought it was really good.I was quite sceptical at first about the bible thing but it didin't bother me too much, there were also some logical flaws in the story, but i can find those in practically all works of fiction.
The aesthetics seem do be heavily inspired by Fallout 3. I saw it with a friend and we were constantly cracking jokes about the game and the movie. "Oh, that's the place where he gets the dog.", "First loot them, shame the chainsaw is so heavy"...

I saw District 9 couple weeks ago. Or half of it, to be exact, at about the time when they were going to get that black fluid back I picked a magazine and took only couple glances at the rest of the movie.

The premise of the film was quite good, and I waited much of it. Especially as it has been lauded so much. But from the begining I was irritated by it's reality-TV style, handycams and such. First I thought it was just an introduction, but it continued and continued. I'm not either fond on how the film had to underline all the time protagonist's noncomfortable situation, nor that cutting technique involved with it (like showing when he's eating -cut- he's pouring something in his mouth -cut- he's doing something else. I can't explain it, but if you see the scene, you'll notice what I mean).

I didn't either like the pace of the movie, and how it concentrated on action and one day (or was there two? Can't remember). I was hoping for more wide portrayal of the alien-human conflict.

From what I saw of the rest of the movie, it looked like it was just standard action thing.

I know I'm in minority with this view, and am not trying to troll here, but I honestly can't understand what's so good about the movie. Ok, the whole idea is kind of neat, but unfortunately I read it from the paper when the movie came out, and the film itself failed to add anything new to what I already had read about it.

For reasons too complicated to get into,---

It must have something to do with your wife, or females in general.

There are some things in female mind that I can't understand and romcoms are one of them. Even more so, if they contain Hugh Grant (hope I got it right, I always get the Notting Hill-Hugh mixed with the Wooster-Hugh).

Movies focusing on relationships and romance and the like are not inherently bad - but most of them are. In fact, most of them insult women as a gender.

You're right. I think I've even seen a romcom that wasn't bad.

Hmm.. Does being comedic and romantic make a film romcom? High Fidelity for example was both, but lacked most of the distinctive characteristics, for example it doesn't start with the charcters meeting each others.

The biggest repellant in romcoms, I think, is how they rely so much on awkwardness. The target group seems to find awkwardness not only funny, but also romantic.

Luckily I've known quite a few females who do not watch romcoms or force me to watch them, and I know it isn't any general rule that females like them. However, I've also been unpleasantly surprised upon learning that a girl whom I have wrongly profiled likes them.

I think its supposed to look silly. People don't really live in pink houses.

How does it depict Ireland? I love watching foreign movies set here to see how they sell the place to the audience back home. For example I found the movie Irish Jam entertaining because if its hackneyed stereotypical depiction of Ireland which verged on offensive.

Also, I agree with your assessment of romcoms.

What, don't middle-class Midwestern women with personalities ever find love?

Such a person would have to exist in order to find love.

The last movie I saw for the first time was The Invention of Lying.

It was much funnier than I expected actually. It seemed like it was going to be a one or two joke movie (and it was largely) but Gervais still made it clever.

I was quite dissapointed by it. Its a great idea but I don't think it has any longevity - it would have been better used in a comedy sketch than a feature length movie.

I am afraid I cannot speak to the accuracy of the depiction, but it focused on small towns, and pubs, and the like (the Ireland part of the movie was mostly a road trip) - it seemed to portray small town Ireland the way most movies like that treat small town USA, as a sort of curiosity into which our yuppie protagonist finds themselves thrust.

I mean, it was a positive portrayal in the sense that if Ireland were really like that, it would seem like a nice place to visit or even live, but I don't really think Ireland is like that by and large.

I see. Well rural Ireland is quite picturesque. The only motorways in the country are confined to Dublin, so I suppose a road trip (especially in the west) would be more scenic than in countries that actually have a decent transport system.

I was mainly asking about people. Did they do jigs at crossroads and exclaim faith and begorrah at every opportunity? I can't find fault in the pub aspect, we do spend a lot of times in pubs.

I saw Bill Maher's Religilous last night, which consists of awkward interviews with conservative believers, linked by monologues in which Maher explains why rationalists and humanists find religion so disagreeable. The interviews made for difficult viewing: people don't respond well to even his fair questions, after which point he tends to mock them. The monologues were the best part of the movie for me -- pointed, passionate, and funny.

Well, all the old men were full of folksy wisdom that they couldn't keep straight ("if you start a journey on a Sunday-" "no, a Wednesday-") but that may be true of old men everywhere. They weren't too stereotypically Irish IMO, there was a bunch of drinking and dancing but that was at a wedding reception.

Tell me about it...

"Oooo! You weren't expecting somebody who wasn't there before to appear in the medicine cabinet mirror when they closed it, were you! Woooo!!"

"Oh! You weren't expecting something to pop out at them when they were staring closely at that window, did you?!"

"Ooo! Isn't it realistic that despite all these coincidental murders and incidents, this person keeps dismissing that their favorite person could possibly be a killer!"

"Isn't it realistic that the person always goes to check what a noise was when it would be wisest to just get the eff out of the house?!"

"Oh look! That cop was just murdered yet strangely, no backup has arrived! Backup will only arrive after the protagonists have pwned the antagonist themselves!"

I mean, geez. It's no wonder I sit through SciFi channel horror movies these days. They're so bad it's good. And you get them for free too, unlike the other pieces of crap you have to pay for. (To be fair, at least several SciFi movies have the balls to kill off the entire protagonist cast, rather than have a "and the survivors lived happily ever after!" ending)

Terminator 4: Salvation- pretty much sucked, but my opinion really didn't dive for this film until I watched the next one on my list:

District 9: A cool sci-fi/action film. What Terminator 4 should have been (not exactly, but you get my point). A movie not afraid to cuss, and show blood, body parts etc. I'm so disgusted by PG-13 hollywood. Speaking of pg-13 hollywood

Avatar: This movie while it was the most amazing thing I have ever seen, the movie itself sucked. Typical hollywood liberal trash. They didn't have the balls to portray americans as the bad guys (at least Danced with Wolves had the balls to do so), so they made up some huge corporation with a ridiculously sized army. Sigh.

The Wicker Man (original of course, not some crappy american remake). I don't think I ever saw this, or if I did, it was a tv version. This is a classic, a movie I should have seen by now. Pretty cool flick.

Abre Los Ojos: better than the american version of course. and you get to see more of penelope cruz. Always a nice thing.

letters from iwo jima- pretty good, not Clint's best work, and I feel it was a little too hollywoodized. but Clint is pretty good about keeping too much modern hollywood crap out of his films.

2009 was a big disappointment. Transformers 2? Good action but cheesy. The Hangover? Just cheesy. Star Trek? Competent, but un-original. And Dear God, who the hell decided to put time travel in there??? In Star Trek, time travel is always an unspoken admission that the writers are out of ideas. Thankfully I didn't have to pay to see any of these.

Avatar? Didn't bother to waste my time. Hell, even I can write better sci-fi than that.

Somebody please blow up Hollywood so some better writers will come out of the woodwork.

Saw District 9. Actually liked it though I thought I'd hate it from the reviews. Still the low budgetness was really obvious with the low number of actors for scenes that in Hollywood would have tons of vehicles/troopers. E.g. I LOLd @ all the times there's basically a national security type emergency, but only 1 jeep/1 helicopter chasing the guy. Also LOL'd that there wasn't a more international cast, because I'm sure most of the world would be content not to send their own advisors into the action.

Basically pretty good acting and script, and basically Peter Jackson's computer graphics makes it fun to watch. Way better than the Blair Witch.

Might actually go see the sequel.

I think this time, the time travel was strictly for the marketing. While I would have been one of the old trekkies to complain about the lack of the old cast, I think the new movie would kind of been better if it was less time travel paradox/non-paradox/er whatever.

Saw Matrix: Revolutions Some good scenes, but mostly a can of suck. I finally understand the whole machines/matrix duality, but still this is a pretty brain dead movie of random scenes with just a couple of good dialogue and action scenes. Trinity et al going to see the French man was the real climax of the movie, and she has the best line of the whole movie then too ("I don't have time for this..."). Random scenes of the people mechs vs. the machines was pretty good too.

Saw the Spirit. Basically a kind of Dick Tracy/Darkman/Batman/The Shadow kind of pastiche. Pretty good stuff, true to a you-in-the-comicbook style of directing. Pretty good acting out of good vs. evil (some random white guy vs. Samuel Jackson), and supporting cast too. Got really kind of odd, fast-forward-this-please, kind of mindless somewhere in the middle. I guess it needed some tighter editing/scripting, but worth rewatching.

Watched all three Bourne movies over the last week, really amazing I can't believe I hadn't watched them earlier. In terms of action and actual cool spy tricks they blew James Bond out of the water, it was like if a slightly less ingenious Macgyver learned martial arts and then got chased by the CIA.

Also watched Ong Bak: Thai Warrior last night, really fantastic movie with great completely real stunts. None of the wires or CG crap in most action movies all pure raw physical skill of Tony Jaa, who is amazing! Also liked the story a lot it was kind of formulaic and lame but still endearing and funny, and then when paired with the stunts it was just awesome!

Watched The Lost City, Andy Garcia's effort at dramatising the events of the Communist Revolution in Cuba. It was ok, I suppose what I liked the most about it was that it was relatively non biased. It didn't portray the revolution in the romantic way we are so used to seeing on film, and it wasn't blatantly deriding it either. I was kind of expecting it to be very biased against the revolution seeing as Garcia's family fled Cuba shortly afterwards.

Bill Murray played a character with no name in it, and he kind of reminds me of The Fool from King Lear. He was always hovering around Garcia's character, making pithy humorous remarks on the events that were unfolding. I read the wiki page on the movie and apparently hes meant to paly the role of a Greek chorus. The character seemed a bit pointless to me, they could have cut him out completely. Same goes for Dustin Hoffman's role as Meyer Lansky.

I'm interested in the subject matter, so it was enjoyable nonetheless.

There was no point in having a Greek chorus in my opinion. In every scene hes in he just sits around making observations on whats happening when the viewer is probably going to reach those conclusions anyways. If anything I found his inclusion a bit patronising, like they were trying to ensure that I came away from the movie with a certain opinion of the events. Which is odd too, because otherwise its a pretty nonbiased movie.

That could be a calculated element. Maybe it depends on what you mean by having a point? A Greek chorus-figure doesn't necessarily advance the plot, so that might be why it didn't fulfill your expectations.

The patronising vibe sounds very interesting, actually. If that is true, that's a pretty classic hallmark of the Greek chorus. After all, they were sometimes used to represent the ineffectual (but self-righteous) rabble.

@Civ King:

I think it's horrible. He spends like 10 seconds mourning his mother, then he goes out and he finds out about this cool new place and is suddenly all very excited. The discussion between him and Pierce Brosnan made me facepalm several times. Then, he goes into the wargame and finds the hottest girl -who also happens to be his uncle's granddaughter: his first-cousin, once removed in the camp and trounces her, even though she has had several years of experience.

Never once in the film does he even seem to care about the fact that his best friend was, really, assigned to him. If I found out my best friend was assigned to me to protect me, I'd be hurt and I'd question our whole relationship.

Maybe it's because I've watched enough of Chinese martial arts and 'historical' movies. Frankly, I was highly disappointed, especially the way everything is so trite. And trust me, quite a few people hate the movie too. Good special effects are pretty much taken for granted. What actually makes a movie good (story, characters, directorial concept, fight choreography, etc) is where this movie fails utterly.

Well, I didn't think Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon was anything special either. I guess, like I said, if you've watched enough of that kind of movies, you're not going to find much that is new and interesting about them, and it's going to take a lot more than nice special effects to wow you.

Got home from work last night to see that the infamous low budget exploitation film I Spit On Your Grave was on TV. Made in 1978, its about a woman who goes to a secluded cabin to write her novel, but is brutally raped by four hillbillies. She gets her revenge on them one by one. I was intrigued by the plot, and how gruesome could it be?

( The only movie I've watched that was too brutal to sit through was Irreversible - I challenge you to watch this and sit through the whole lot. Same subject matter, rape. Absolutely disgusting movie, but quite powerful and poignant, was even up for the Palme d'Or at Cannes. )

I couldn't watch it all. The rape scene is really long. I mean at a certain point I was thinking, ''I get it, they brutally rape her, how much more do I have to watch to get that?''. Seriously, it must be 30 minutes long. I can only assume it was so long because certain people get off watching this crap.

So yeah, steer clear.

Another Gay Movie:

:lmao: It's funny. If you're the type of person who doesn't mind seeing gay guys have sex and make out and seeing penises and hands up buttholes, and can appreciate the good humour and cuteness in a bromance, then this movie is something for you.

Wheres the cuteness in analrapism?

You should check out The Rules Of Attraction (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rules_of_Attraction_%28film%29). Its written by the same author and the main character is Bateman's brother.

Saw Clash of the Titans in 3D. Not a particularly deep movie, but pretty good movie overall. Probably not quite up to Beowulf, but better CGI monsters than Beowulf. Pretty original interpretation too. "The Rock" did a pretty good job as "Draco".

Definitely worth seeing in 3D if you see it at all, though there's long stretches without any 3D action.

Also seems there's a bit of easter egg cultural references in the movie. I counted one Black Hawk Down reference, and I think one Nietzche inspired reference/scene.

...it didn't help there was a freaking POLICE OFFICER outside the theater. I was like: "Oh god, oh god, oh god, I'm gonna get arrested, oh god oh god!"

I did like the movie nonetheless. One red herring after another does a good job of keeping you interested.

...I like how they adapt the superhero theme to reality though, with the superheroes being more anti-heroes if anything.

And I was impressed; considering I thought Superbad was vastly overrated, it's good to see a popular film I can find funny for a change. Screw some stupid movie about a bunch of kids wanting to engage in drinking and sex(seriously, what the HELL is wrong with people if they find THAT funny?!), give me lots of shockers one after the other.

I meant more that parents are... a little less protective of their children if they have a good social life. If your kid is out everyday and comes home late, it becomes a norm and they sort of trust you to take care of yourself.

The more social teens can often time be found with a mug of beer sitting on a couch half-wasted.

Precisely. :p My mom's accepting of them anyway; she even has a gay friend.

He's not the type who's commonly found at a teen party with a mug of beer in his hand.

Besides my lack of social skills, I also have a strong distaste for all forms of intoxication. :p Hence why I go "OMFG!" when I hear somebody young's taken up drinking or smoking, and my opinion of them declines a bit.

I dunno, curfew at 17 seems a bit silly. Here in Ireland most kids at that age, good social life or not, are out in pubs and nightclubs til 2-3am.

Welcome to America, Shekwan. We say it's fine for kids to get a job, have sex, and drive a car at 16, and sign over their lives to the OMFG GLORIOUS BEST-YOU-CAN-EVER-BE MILITARY LIFESTYLE at 17, yet we won't allow them to smoke, drink, vote, or even engage in certain forms of entertainment. And curfew adds to this ugly stew of idiocy.

Though, this is why you need to fight Progressivism. It seeks to abolish the hilarious moral/logical stupidity our justice system possesses.

Judging by the fact he mentioned a police officer and getting arrested, i'm going to assume he means violating a curfew law, rather than violating any rule his parents may have set.

Precisely. When my friend told me about curfew, I was like: "Ohhh crap..." and then I saw a cop like three feet away from us at the ticket booth, though thankfully he was turned around so he didn't see us. It was like sneaking into the castle in Ocarina of Time.

I think it's more that he was afraid that his parents had sent the cops to look for him.

Oh no, not at all. My mom knew I was out; I was just afraid the cop was looking for curfew-breakers. Especially if it was the "quota season" time, where all cops turn into massive asses who seek to arrest everyone for everything to meet their quota of arrests.

But more so, when Theo visited his friend played by Michael Caine, he looked at all the guy's memorabilia, and a lot of it was based on the Iraq War and Britain's involvement thereof. This doesn't make any sense in the context of the story, I felt, because the significance of the Iraq War on society would pale in comparison to the fertility problem.

The purpose of that was showing the politics of the character from before and during the fertility crisis. Since the movie takes place in a certain year, the Iraq war would be one of the more significant events that occurred right before people stopped being able to have children. It was not a comment on the war.

Well, sure, but it was also an event that would be irrelevant in comparison, certainly compared to the amount of focus it got. It seemed to me the filmmakers were going out of their way to emphasize it - the invasion happened 6 years before the crisis, and nothing else at all got mentioned, no other past events.
