Last Movie You've Seen

Crokey

Please post more than just the title. 

 

We don't need a War and Peace essay on the film, but at least give a couple of sentences of good and bad points and even throw in a rating if you want to, as long as you give some rationale.

I feel a new topic is needed because posts like this one keep happening.

 

Discussion is encouraged, and number ratings are as good as banned. Number ratings tell people nothing about the film.

 

Last page of the old topic for those that might want to carry on discussions.

 

Post away. smile.gif

 

Mod edit: To keep this from being just a spam topic of random titles, and to keep it interesting, please post at least one sentence about the movie you've seen. You can write as much as you want about the movie, write a book for all I care, but don't just post the title of the movie. Put at least some effort into it, even if it's just something like "It was good" or "I hated it". Thank you.

I got pretty hard-ass drunk last night and rewatched Walk the Line. No matter how many times I see it, I am still blown away. It really is one of my favourite films, and speaks to me on a very personal level. My own relationship reminds me of the one shared by Johnny Cash and June Carter. Some kind of unspoken bond, tried at times by the lure of addiction. It's a great story, and Phoenix and Witherspoon really communicate their love perfectly.

 

There is one performance in the film that really brings a smile to my face, though, and that is Waylon Payne's turn as Jerry Lee Lewis. The guy captures the essence of Lewis so perfectly, that it is beyond belief. When he first appears, it's almost like you're seeing a young Jerry Lee himself on-screen.

 

God gave us a great big apple, see, and He said don't touch it. He didn't say touch it once in a while; He didn't say take a nibble when you're hungry; He said don't touch it! Don't think about touchin'it, don't sing about touchin' it, don't think about singin' about touchin' it!

How about "WALK HARD" ...The Dewey Cox story?

I keep debating on getting it, mostly as a rental. I saw Step Brothers and was pretty much in stitches, and if Will Ferrell were in it, I'd pretty much pick it up.

 

I think Step Brothers and Get Smart are the better comedies. I rented Burn After Reading as well, and though I won't complain the humor is FAR too dry, it is not in the same league as Get Smart... I never thought I'd say that, but one made me really laugh, where the other one I probably grinned more.

Haven't seen Get Smart, but I bloody loved Burn After Reading. I consider my humour dry enough to fine it hysterical anyway. I'm gonna get it on DVD this week.

 

Picked up 12 Monkeys and Dogma last Saturday (The latter I've seen before), so I'll probably watch 12 Monkeys first then rewatch Dogma, which I love.

I highly recommend 12 monkeys. It is much smarter a film then I expected when I was watching it on cable at 1 in the morning. The story arc as a whole is genius.

 

Just watched it now, really enjoyed it. I love how you never knew where the plot was going, or what the f*ck was going off. Not because it was crap, but because no one knew what was happening. Then it all comes together at the end. Class.

Let me just say, Glad you didn't nix this topic, because I think besides recommending NEW films, old ones get neglected in often cases...many that deserve a viewing, and are not given the attention.

 

I'm watching my special edition of Basic Instinct again, it's so good, I am truly sad the sequel tanked. With more great actors, could it have been saved?!?

Watched King of New York for the first time yesterday night on DVD. I've had access to it for years, but was never really interested. Don't know why I waited so long, it was fantastic. A gritty, heavy-handed crime boss Christopher Walken? What's not to like? This movie rocked the sh*t, and the cast was awesome. Larry Fishburne, David Caruso, Wesley Snipes, and a slew of cameos including Steve Buschemi. Released in 1990, it was New Jack City before New Jack City. The music, the language, the styles, damn it was old school. And Walken danced, pfff, that made the movie right there. Loved the story of newly-released Frank White (Walken) reclaiming the city in the most bloodiest of fashions. He wasn't an armchair general either which is what made his character so good. He did his own dirty work, and racked up quite the body count. Larry Fishburne as his hilarious and charismatic personal shooter was icing on the cake. And the acting was real good, by Walken and the actor who played the elder cop, Bishop. The ending of the film was just right for me. Very Man on Fire-esque which was right up my alley as I felt, in some semblance, Frank won.

 

Excellent. Will be thinking about this movie for the next week.

The Prestige.

 

The most awesome movie of 2006.

Not the best, probably.

But the most awesome.

The movie itself is impossible to talk about without spoiling crucial details.

It starts in the very beginning of the 20th century

and it's about two stage magicians

and it ends with a philosophical twist about

f*cking ethics of bioengineering.

This is at least worth renting, if not buying.

Yeah, I f*cking loved the Prestige. Kept me guessing all the way through. Bale's on-screen presence kept me so entertained, as did Caine's and Jackman's. Although the

whole idea and ending was a little disappointing, I was satisfied by it. Great film icon14.gif

 

I watched Napoleon Dynamite for the first time last night. It's not the funniest comedy ever, it had it's odd laugh out loud moments, but I've heard it takes a second viewing to appreciate it. I enjoyed it anyway.

 

A mate lent Hard Candy ages ago and haven't got round to watching it yet, so I think I'll finally watch it tonight.

OH NO

^Watched it recently. Other than it dragging on a bit, and therefore being able to work out certain details, it was very good. Like you said not really able to discuss certain things. Was surprised when thingy showed up though, you know, whatsisface.

 

 

Last thing I watched was Let The Right One In, Swedish film..theres a remake in 2010. Cant say enough good things about this film..but dont really want to say anything and possibly spoil it for people. Has stayed with me for days since watching though..sweet, sinister, uplifting..slightly disturbing. Its brilliant.

Yeah, I didn't laugh as much as I wanted to the first time I saw it. But after watching it again, it's one of my favourite films.

 

But anyway, I watched Anchorman last night. Steve Carell is hilarious in this film, so is Will Ferrell. Really great film. But the best film I watched yesterday was Pulp Fiction. I hadn't watched it for a while, I realised who much I love the film. A real must-see film.

"You know what they call a quater pounder in France?"

"What?"

"A Royale with Cheese."

I completely agree. Tarantino had a great rhythm at the start of his career which went flat after Jackie Brown. He was so fresh at the start, and then became a parody of himself.

I'm taking a break from Police Acadamy (1) and then I will watch on DVD; The Bros Grimm

Talladega Nights, MI 3 (Mission Impossible 3) and The Bourne Ultimatum.

 

All of those were deemed worthy of purchase, MI3 more so because I have the others and Brothers Grimm because it was a Goodwill find! hahaha

Terry Gilliam directed so it really can't be bad.

The original Ocean's Eleven is on TV, and I have to say that it's a real treat for a rainy Saturday afternoon. Frank Sinatra outshines George Clooney in every way.

 

I love the Rat Pack.

I'd love to pack your rat.

 

I went to see the new Friday The 13th today. It was amusing enough, too many fake boobs, though.

 

I mean, if we're supposed to believe they are young, why have two of the three naked girls got artificial dirty pillows!?

I got to see a few things at our annual film festival, so let me mention some new stuff worth looking out for.

 

Mary and Max

My personal highlight. Masterfully done stop-motion animation without a single digital image, mainly presented as a hilarious comedy yet telling a serious story about alienation and friendship.

 

In the Loop

Armando Iannucci's first feature-length film, a highly entertaining political satire/farce about what could have gone on behind closed doors in political commitees before the Iraq war started. Makes you wonder, while laughing your arse off, how politicians get anything at all actually done if even the tiniest bit of this were true. It also makes you cringe upon realizing that some bits of it could, actually, very well be true...

 

Trilogy II - The Dust of Time

The new film by one of my all-time favourite directors Theo Angelopoulos. You'll have to be in the arthouse mood for this one but if you enjoy mesmerising cinematography and masterfully done long shots and are not afraid of symbolism and multilayered storytelling, you might enjoy it as much as I did.

 

Butterfly Effect: Revelation

I like my occasional late-night trashy horror flick, so I went to see this one. As it is with sequels, I had zero expectations. And was pleasantly surprised. It's not a masterpiece or anything, but if you like the genre you might find it quite entertaining.

Those sound like some pretty solid recommendations - thanks for the heads up. I particularly like the sound of Mary and Max. It's so refreshing to see animated films that don't rely on CGI.

Absolutely, same here.

I just clicked around a bit and found a page with a trailer and some clips.

Just got back from Friday the 13th. Holy sh*t, there were seriously Dark Knight numbers at the theater tonight, if it was nuts just at my theater, this movie is gonne be HUGE. Movie was pretty cool too, better than most of the slasher remakes I've seen. It seemed to be efective in the scare department, people were jumping all around, and Jason was a badass rambo motherf*cker, he ment business, what with the running around and whatnot.

Hmm. I thought it would be major suckage, since typically most remakes do suck. And some girl in my class showed up late today because she went to the midnight showing, and said that she was planning on going camping this summer with her friends, but she's now having second thoughts.

 

I'll check it out. The comparison of Jason and Rambo vaguely intrigued me. Apart from Taken, there's really nothing else out right now that I'm interested in. I'm eagerly waiting for Watchmen next month though.

That actually makes it a bit more interesting to me. To sum it up, he's a crazily f*cked up, smart, brutish motherf*cker.

Yeah, we were at an afternoon showing and it was packed. The 9.30 showing had already sold out, and the one inbetween was Limited.

 

There were girls screaming in the cinema and whatnot, I just thought the death were too predictable. confused.gif

 

But yeah, it was cool that they managed to incorporate the original first three films into one. Also that they kept certain things from them, such as Jason running, and discovering the mask. And the end leads straight into the inevitable sequel, of course.

Nuthin wrong with goin' on at length about something, it gets the information or opinion or idea out there for others, which is why I like the Nets.

 

I was GOING to watch a tape I got of the Eiger Sanction but sadly found it taped over with a copy of Beverly Hills Cop from DVD. Man am I pissed right now! I wanted to see CLINT not EDDIE! ARGH!

All it needs now is a Crispin Glover dance and I am there. I'm really surprised you guys liked it I thought it was going to be god awful but now I might have to check it out.

 

 

Kept switching between Beverly Hills Cop and The Godfather on my break today. Both are great movies. I just can't get enough of that damn synth score.
