Alright, this is the thread where you tell everyone what the last movie you saw was and what you thought about it. I'll go first.

I saw Munich for the second time this weekend.

http://us.movies1.yimg.com/movies.yahoo.com/images/hv/photo/movie_pix/universal_pictures/munich/munich_bigearlyposter.jpg

I LOVE this movie. IMO, it's Spielberg's best in over a decade. Since Shindler's List, even.

Also, Eric Bana is a pimp. He's cool in every movie he's made. Even the ****ty ones.

Well.......

I went to The Bridge theater on Saturday and saw "Final Destination 3" on the IMAX screen. I enjoyed the movie very much (but I also liked the other 2 FD's). The whole "roller coaster" scenario, brought up a host of fears for me.....and the other death scenes were pretty *interesting*. Good times. :)

And then that evening, I watched Exorcist (the version you've never seen) re-release from 2000. My friend and I watched that whole "Spider -Walk" scene over and over. *shivers* That movie never gets old.....or less creepy. evil: repuke: evil:

NO Blood No Tears.... not a new movie.. but did like it.

I watched that for the first time about a week ago. I liked it, but for most of the movie I kept thinking about how it wasn't as good as My Wife Is A Gangster. And then that big fight scene happened between the mob enforcer and the abusive boyfriend guy, and I stopped thinking about it.

I find that DDD is USUALLY cheaper than you'll find things anywhere else. Not always, but frequently. The fact that shipping is free is always a nice touch, as well.

Since our friend was in Date Movie ( last scene ) was able to see it at home, was rolling on the floor laughing. I would never pay to see this movie but it spoofed almost every movie you could think of. The Milk shake song has a whole new meaning now.

I concur with this. I found it to be a tad long at times but overall pretty good.

Also recently seen,

Rent. Also too long IMO. I have seen better musicals.

When a Stranger Calls. The original was better.

Crash. Excellent movie. Says alot about racial boundries.

Brokeback Mountain. I think my daughter and myself are the only ones who liked this film. I dunno.

Hustle & Flow. Hated it. I don't see what the hype was about.

Underworld: Evolution. Umm. Ok. I went along with what he wanted to see. The choices were limited and I was a good sport I think.

As far as movies at home, I can't recall half the things we see, I live with movie whores.:)

Midnight Cowboy was a widespread film way ahead of its time in the late sixties and Altered States had some fantastic visual components to the movie (although the ending seemed kinda like a cop-out and out of character).

Altered States should only be viewed after dropping a tab of acid...then the ending will make perfect sense.

I meant more like his sudden love for her after years of just her being more of an item of comfort, and his sudden love for her and then hugging/fade to black just seems like to easy of a way to end it. I get his whole reasoning for seeing the dark reality of truth-less, cold, cruel existence and not wanting to go down that path, but... I guess maybe I just don't like it when movies that throw an unneeded "I love you" at the end, lol. Leaves a funny taste in my mouth from an otherwise flawless meal.

I hated this movie. My wife told me it was a Woody Allen thriller. It wasn't even close to that. She kept hitting me any time I started laughing out loud at parts that were not intended to be funny. Scarlett is hot, but she has problems in movies with a lot of dialogue. We saw The Producers at a place that serves you dinner while you watch the movie. That's probably the best way to watch it. Lots of gayness but it was pretty good for the most part. We Netflixed The Constant Gardner and Red Eye the other day. CG was not what I expected and Red Eye was OK.

Last DVD/movie I saw was Ultimate Avengers (direct to DVD animated from Marvel).

I read the initial Ultimates arc a few years back, so I thought the movie was "OK", but short (~70 mins) and unfocused storywise (it mainly deals with Cap's history) and sprinkles-in some of the other 7 heroes.

Strangely, even after seeing it, I'm not sure who the movie is aimed at besides Marvel fans... the original comic pushed a Mature rating and this DVD was only PG, and I don't really think kids would find this one very interesting. Episodes of JLU have been done better than this.

This is only the first of 4 (or is it 8?) animated movies planned by Marvel, so hopefully things get better from here.

As a fan of Ultimates, I've been tempted to check this out, but your review is like most that I've read. And since I'm not an Avengers fan, really, I think I'll just skip it.

Going with the two Doctors of lgk, The Thing has been getting played, played and more played on the Encore channels and it is probably John Carpenter's most complete film. Halloween was great as a first start and The Fog was good as well but The Thing was his best movie IMHO.

Also rented Cinderella Man, which I thought was quite good. Oh and Cold Mountain has been on Encore quite a lot lately and I liked the acting and story in that movie.

"hustle & flow"--loved it. love terence howard--second best thing about "crash" after, well, lorenz tate. kinda wished they came up with that song.
"brokeback" i left completely pissed off. not cuz i hated the performances or was bummed about the lack of hot gay cowboy love, but it sucked how sad it was.
"fun with dick 'n jane" HI-larious. can totally relate to being broke. *shudders at the thought of working in a corporate environment*
"shopgirl" so cute. jason schwartzman's that guy we've all dated.

favorite movie of last year hasta be "walk the line". seen it twice and that says a lot for my broke ass. surpassed my already high expectations. watch it, buy it, get the soundtrack. even though i'm usually totally annoyed by reese, she was so loveable. amazed at how great they sing. i heart bob dylan, so it was rad that they sang it ain't me babe.

lemme know how ultraviolet and v for vendetta are--my grrrlfriend's in the movie, but i got books to buy. does anyone know how eight below was? i'm dying to see it. unless one of those dogs die. i only cry for animal stories. can't watch animal planet.

(I've wanted a good pacific theater movie for some time now. Two of them is even better.)

I just read an update on the Japanese version today

"Clint Eastwood personally selected Ken Watanabe (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0913822) [The Last Samuai, Batman Returns and Memoirs of a Geisha] to play the lead role. Also cast in this film are Nakamura Shido (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1217394/) [Ping Pong, Neighbour 13 and The Last Battle], Ihara Tsuyoshi (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0407296/), Kase Ryo (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1076976/) [Bright Future] and Ninomiya Kazunari (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0632497/).

Shooting begins next week in L.A. Eastwood will open Flags of our Fathers (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0418689/) in Japan in August and Red Sun, Black Sand (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0498380/) will follow in December."

Looks like the American version will star Robert Patrick, Barry Pepper, Ryan Phillipe, and Paul Walker.

Firefly was awesome. The characters are incredibly sketched and the feel of the show is truly unique.

I'm a big fan of Whedon, who ranks right up there with Aaron Sorkin for me. These guys write some of the best ideas with some of the best dialogue.


And, as I'm in the thread, I might as well mention I'm watching Cyrano de Bergerac for about the 10th time right now. Poor, big-nosed bastard. I'd fall for Ann Brochet too.

Based on the true story of boxer James J. Braddock, but me not being a boxing fan, I had no idea how this movie would end.

I never liked the title. Turns out it was taken from Damon Runyan's description of Braddock (I still don't like it! ;))

absosmurfly! sampling is EXACTLY what i'd compare him to.

1) Well, the movie was VERY Spielberg. But I thought pretty much everything was great about it. I think Eric Bana is one of the best actors in the world.

2) **** yeah he does. I need to get my hands on more of his old school ****.

3) Maybe. I know when it first came out, Blockbuster and Hollywood were carrying it, but I have no idea if they still are. Unless you're talking about buying it. In which case, I have seen it at Best Buy a few times. And ANY video store can order it for you if they don't have it in stock.

Had to go to IMDB for this, but yeah. Unbreakable, Jackie Brown, Pulp Fiction, The Long Kiss Goodnight (guilty pleasure)... man... I could have sworn he had done more good movies, but I guess I was wrong...

Graphic Novel Spoiler text... highlight to read:

In the GN, after V is loaded onto the explosives/train, Evey sends it off (detective is not present in the GN). Then (it is probably some time later) we see Evey standing on a building wearing V's duds. There are not 400 people standing around in V-wear.

She also takes-on a new apprentice to begin teaching him the ropes (I think it was the detective's partner?). The theme that was more present in the GN was that Evey (a play on Adam & Eve, BTW) would lead the country in rebuilding when V was gone.

Great flick though.

Wow, really good movie.


The film is just as confusing as it's subject; time travel. If you're a fan of Daron Aranovsky's Pi and 70's era science fiction movies, this is right up your alley. I don't want to talk about it too much, because I saw it pretty cold footed and loved it. If it means anything to you, it won the Grand Jury selection at Sundance in 04.

Every few months I go through a "what great Oscar winning movie have I not yet seen" faze.
9 out of 10 times I'm disappointed.
Out of Africa wasn't horrible, it was just so predictable.

The scenery was gorgeous, the fact that it was a true story was neat but that was all it had.
Meryl Streep wasn't pleasant to look at.
It was a very long movie and 10 minutes into the movie if you were asked to predict the ending, you'd hit it straight on.

I watched Ugetsu last night.

I liked it, but not as much as I'd hoped to. The movie description on the back says it's one of the "most beautiful films ever made", but I didn't find it to be that. Very well done, sure, but... it wasn't exactly a Kurosawa film.

Certainly not a bad movie, but it didn't quite live up to my expectations.

I just finished watching Crash on Showtime. I don't know why people thought this movie was such a big deal. For anyone who hasn't seen it, let me sum it up for you... everyone is a walking stereotype, everyone is racist, politicians buy votes and create PR spins and LAPD is corrupt. I think I rolled my eyes through half the movie.

Instead of preying on people's anger and/or ignorance, I'd like to see anyone show just a little bit of imagination or originality when it comes to movie making. How about substance instead of shock value? Just a thought.

A Tale of Two Sisters (on the Sundance Channel in about an hour) better live up to the hype, Adgy.

Sorta creepy (it makes you think about weird unmentionable things), the last 20 minutes are over done and the victims are so likable that the movie is at times very disturbing, even more so, the "head on a stick" was actually taken from the "games" of the serial murder that the movie is based on (Ivan Milat).

I watched Goodnight and Good Luck last night. I enjoyed it, the performances were mostly very good and there were some great lines (which you can't even credit to the writers, because they are actual quotes).

The only thing I was a little disappointed in was that I was expecting it to be meatier. There wasn't much to it in that it was just a shot or two by each side in the Murrow/McCarthy battle... but then I guess that just adds to the approach taken in creating this film, which is to show it like it was, with the actual footage of McCarthy, and using a portrayal of Murrow's broadcasts to tell the story. It was fitting in its way, with form matching content.

Went out and supported Latin cinema this afternoon by watching the Chilean film La Mujer De Mi Hermano (My Brother's Woman). It's basically a wife-cheats-on-husband movie except the affair is between the wife and her husband's brother, and then they throw an odd little twist at the end. The film was good, not great, but it's driving me nuts trying to remember where I've seen the house they used in this movie. Frank Lloyd Wright immediately comes to mind, but I don't think that right. Anyway, got to listen to some cool music in the movie, including Volumen Cero, the Nortec Collective and Beto from La Ley. Oh, and I can't forget to mention that the star, Barbara Mori, is at Monica Bellucci's level. Thanks to the Laemmle Theatre for putting these foreign films on a big screen.
