That looks like one freaky-ass movie.

I watched a movie called Mean Creek last night. It's about a bully who beats up a kid and the kid's friends plan revenge by going on a boat trip. But everything goes horribly wrong... I'll leave it there. It was a great film. I was suprised to see Josh from Drake and Josh full on swearing in the film. I'd give it 9/10 overall. I'd recommend it to you all.

Godzilla vs Hedorah. Basicly Godzilla fights monster made out of pollution. Also this movie has one of the most funniest scenes I've seen in a Godzilla movie,

Gummo is on Criterion Ld and DVD I imagine as well.

I saw the Grimm Brothers by Terry Gillium as well as MI 3 and Miami Vice, the movie... I reserved on used DVD...

I liked Mission Impossible 3, have to admit, it wasn't bad at all.

Watched Phone Booth last night on C4. I've seen it a couple of times already, so I already knew what my stance was on it. I always enjoy it, it was very well made and kept me captivated throughout. The Caller was one hell of a character, planning extensively beforehand, all in a bid to change people's ways. Great film, decent cast and one that I'd recommend to people who have yet to see it.

Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare (or if you want A Nightmare On Elm Street 6.) I remembered watching this when I was young so I got it and its just how I remembered it cheesy as f*cking sh*t.The FX in this movie makes me remember growing up in the 90's. Not a movie for people who like serious movies or ones that are "scary" but great for people that like really cheesy "bad" movies like myself.

Watched a few movies for the first time these past days.

Deep Cover (1992) starring Laurence Fishburne and Jeff Goldblum. A pretty damn good movie with Larry, where he plays a cop who goes deep undercover as a drug dealer to take down an enterprise, but has things get way out of hand. Jeff Goldblum is the most hardcore I've ever seen him in a movie as a drug-pushing lawyer. He did well in this somewhat over-the-top drama, and made me more of a fan of his. Larry was good as always, dancing on the line between cop and criminal. The last hour of the movie really picks up and becomes pretty badass with Larry and Jeff partnering up. Shame he had to pop Jeff...

Last House on the Left (1972) the original, not the bound to be disappointing remake. I watched this with my brother out of sheer curiosity of the remake. And surprisingly, I really enjoyed it. Totally vintage 70s flick, with a soundtrack that seems so f*cking out of place and odd voice dubbing. But the story was enjoyable, and the violence pretty intense. There was rape, stabbing, shooting, forced urination, carving, chainsaws, knives, and the biting of a penis. So, overall, a good watch. I already know the remake will have bloody violence, but in a real cheap way that fails in comparison to the original. Murderous parents that can turn the kill switch instantaneously is always fun to see. Plus, it was directed by the man himself, Wes Craven.

Body of Lies (2008) starring Leo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe. I don't give a f*ck about the negative reviews for this movie, it was very entertaining. Great acting by Leo and Russell, pretty much all around, an entertaining story, and good action. The plot never bored, and the progression was real good. This movie deserved to do so much better at the box-office. It is a solid espionage thriller with Leo sporting a scraggly beard and losing fingers at the end.

I recently watched there will be blood but the ending was very dissapointing for me, The ending was too much like A Clockwork Orange, you know an ironic ending, but it didn't suit There will be Blood as it was a serious drama. The director tried to be too much like Kubrick in the film, he used the music from The Shining way too much.

Apart from that it was a very good film, Daniel Day Lewis is incredible. Good film by Paul Thomas Anderson, but Boogie Nights was mcuh better.

I... don't know where to begin with that one. So, rather than start spewing venom:

I watched The Tango Lesson today. I like some art house, for lack of a better term, but this was one that didn't interest me at all. Towards the middle of the film, I couldn't help letting out an audible groan every time the characters began dancing. I understood the importance of it, but I simply didn't care. I couldn't connect with the characters in any way - actually, I found them irritating to the core (especially actor/director Sally Potter).

Those of you who have seen it may disagree, and that's cool. That's what art is all about. For me, though, it was tedious to the point of tears.

Stephen King's : The Mist.

My stomach has never churned so much as it did in the final scene of that movie. To be honest the majority of the film beforehand was pretty unremarkable but after just sitting through the ending all that's pretty much out the window. The movie was all about it's ending. It was bleak, chilling and I can still hear a certain scream in the pit of my stomach.

It was like receiving a boot to the groin but instead of scoffing the attacker, you wanted to applaud him. I loved it, but i don't want to do it again any time soon.

The Dark Knight for the first time, bought the DVD yesterday, yeah I know I'm late.

I have to say, wasn't as good as people had said. I know, I know, I shouldn't have believed the hype, but I truly thought Heath Ledger may have been that brilliant. But he wasn't. Not Oscar worthy, he was good in it but very, very repetitive. Each scene with him in felt like I'd seen it before and he was doing the same thing each time, the only scene I felt he was great in was the interrogation scene with Batman.

As a superhero film it was quite good, but focusing on the wrong people. Most of it was about turning Harvey Dent into a bad guy when it should have been about the Joker vs the Batman. Although by focusing on Dent, Nolan highlighted the adversarial aspect of Bale's and Ledger's relationship while also dealing with the film's main theme, that being the triumph of evil over good and the delicate balance of order and chaos and how order can be corrupted very easily.

When I watch these sort of films I usually expect a nice big climax with an epic fight (Blade films, Spiderman etc, although the Dark Knight is better than Spiderman) but it sort of fizzled out.

I'd give it a 7/10.

Also, I hate and love that spinny camera. You know, like the scenes where the Joker is telling Maggie Gyllenhaal how he got his scars. I found that pretty annoying, but there's an explanation for it - Throughout the film they used a lot of IMAX cameras which are very big, heavy and hard to maneuver, maybe putting it on this swivel was an easy way to try and mix up the directing of a scene.

Oh, and Batman is pretty rigid, but that's partly down to his outfit. Later on he gets a suit where he can move his neck around more, but doesn't really get the chance to properly fight again. It was incredibly choreographed, yes, but sometimes it looks too set up if you know what I mean. Fights which actually look real in films are the best fights, with struggles and dirty moves - sorta like the fight in Die Hard against Karl.

Apart from the fights, the chase scene was really good, especially because they omitted any music from most of the scene. In other films they go a bit OTT in the orchestral scores in action scenes, but this was done well - only being able to hear what was going on, the explosions, crashes, engines etc

No, definitely not. sad.gif

All the posts about it on here recently just made me watch my Blu-ray copy that I got for Christmas.

Despite what everybody said about the ending, I said to myself I wouldn't let it bother me... f*cking hell. It's 4.44am, and I'm sitting trying to find something to cheer me up.

I've heard that the ending has a lot of people split and a few angry over the social lessons they interpreted the movie to have. To be honest I didn't get any of that. I was aware it was there and some could interpret it as that, but for me, I just sat down and watched it as a story and ended up coming away thinking it was just so well done. There was no Funny Games ( barf8bd.gif ) esk bitterness on my part.

Slight spoilers below
And that's coming from someone who really fell hook line and sinker for the ending. Where the book ended with them simply driving off into the mist, for me this was what would have happened after that. When the realisation hit that this mist was just so vast that there wasn't a way out. In fact I actually felt like after all they'd been through, letting the creatures get them would have seemed more like a failing. So when it finally ended and just as I had though they had done the right thing.. I was kicked man, I was kicked hard.

Tough to watch. But a really great watch I thought.

I watched The Dark Crystal this weekend and absolutely loved it. Jim Henson and Frank Oz were gods. It really made me sad that CGI has taken over. What they did with puppetry was just amazing mixed with their ability to craft a really rich story, even for a kids movie, just makes for an extremely pleasant viewing experience.

Watched Righteous Kill the other day on DVD. Overall it was a good movie and with a nicely done storyline, I'd recommend it for a watch icon14.gif

Personally, I wouldn't. I was looking forward to it starting its theatrical run last year, and went and saw it the first chance I got (on sheer star power, of course). With DeNiro and Pacino, it's not hard to have a winning formula, and while I'm not going to say this was a bad movie, I didn't think it was good either. Just didn't see anything new or unique about it. Only seemed to me like two aging actors indulging themselves in one last headliner together, with a rather predictable twist to boot.

And while I'm at it, why do they keep giving parts to rappers like 50 Cent? They must think it lends some credibility to him as an actor to be in the same movie as the two A-list actors. Just thought he took away from the movie instead of adding to it; the guy doesn't change anything about himself to get into his character, just pretty much says his lines.

The last movie I saw was Death Race. I didn't want to see it, but a buddy of mine suggested it, telling me it was good. I watched it, and I was surprised. It stars Jason Statham, so I wasn't expecting anything thought-provoking, and I didn't get it either. But it was pretty entertaining, and I liked the ending. It's mindless action, as is the status quo for Statham, but it's enjoyable as always.

I recently watched Stand By Me again for the first time since I was about 8. This is the best movie I've seen, no doubt about it, mainly because it reminds me so much of my childhood, I really miss those days. Me and my mates used to go out and ride our bikes, go messing about in the woods , obviously not finding dead bodies though.

Great child actors, great music, great memories.

Saw Watchmen on Friday. It lived up to my expectations and more. It was a spectacular movie visually and story and acting wise not counting Malin Akerman playing Silk Spectre II. Many of the scenes in it could easily become one of my favorite scenes of all time and the opening credits were the best I've ever seen.

I've never seen The Mist but isn't the ending:

The guy kills his family with a handgun right before the army shows up?

Yeah that's one thing I disliked about it. As you said, I didn't feel that he added anything at all to the film. Not really acting, he was just there. They could've chosen somebody to play the role a lot better imo.

Dog Day Afternoon. The film with Al pacino when he robs a bank and it f*cks up, great film. It's based on a true story and I reccomend it to anyone.

Really hard to believe it's Stephen King. I plan to pick up Firestarter on DVD, I saw that in the theater when released and uploaded an original promo review on YT! More to follow with that. I recently came upon Terminator ads I also uploaded, marred by bad video edit cuts, back in the day, it was TRICKY! haha

I'm going to be watching Chris Elliot's classic Cabin Boy, I am one who never minded the low brow aspect, it's still amusing. It reminds me of Robin Williams in Popeye...Robert Altman's best! haha colgate.gif

Hrmph... I finally got around to watching Choke. It was too light, considering the book it was adapted from. Sure, it'd probably be a fun little romp if you hadn't read it, but it lacked substance, and left a lot out. Nothing happened for a reason... you were just lead through one scenario after the next, until BAM! credits.

It's not fair to compare this film to Fight Club, as we're talking about different screenwriters and directors, but at least the latter was successful in capturing the dark, stylised nature of Palahniuk's writing. I also feel that a book as involved as Choke deserved more than an 80-minute film.

7 Pounds.

Starts off really slow and you have no idea what the f*ck is going until the second half of the movie, and even then you are only given minor details that help advance the trying too hard to be complicated plot. You only get the clear picture at the end of film. Movie's too long as well, kept dragging on and on. However, Will Smith's performance was top-notch.

And yeah, he jellyfish's himself to death
