Mum! Dod! Don't Tot-chit! It's eeville!

 

Watched Time Bandits the other night.  I've seen before maybe 10 times, but it's been years since.  Still love it!  Not even the Star Treks and Terminators of today can hold a candle to this magnificent flick.  9.6/10

I saw Terminator Salvation last night. I really enjoyed the movie. Great special effects, some great fight sequences. Some of it a little far fetched sure, but Terminator has always been that way.

 

Anyways, I'd give it a solid 8/10. Not as good as Star Trek but still a great movie experience. :smileyhappy:


 

how was the storyline?

It fits in with the Terminator franchise pretty well. Is it anything worth writing home about? Not really... but then again neither were the ones in the previous Terminator movies.


I caught it this past weekend. I really liked it. It was pure Terminator but was somehow more mature than I expected. I'll go with the 8.0/10.0 ZeroG gave it. I'm also glad I saw it on the big screen instead of a TV. It needed the extra room.

Star Trek - Kick ass flick!  Great re-entry into the Star Trek universe.  Hopefully we'll see a few of of these.  Kudos to JJ Abrams' wife who talked him into directing this.  Loved every minute of it!  9.1/10
Not everyone was happy with the movie: Some fans dislike the movie

Frost-Nixon:  9/10

 

As a young person, I didn't quite comprehend that we had a more appalling president than g-dub.  Now I do.

"The lives of others" on blu-ray. Excellent movie in German with subtitles. A drama set under the Stasi in East Germany. Anything else said is spoiler material. Do your self a favor and watch this excellent movie. -Squiddy

Watched Rat Race again this weekend.  Great movie, 9.5/10, just gets funnier each time we watch it.  If you haven't seen it, catch it on On-Demand or rental.

Watched The American President the other night for probably the seventh or eighth time.  Still my number 2 favorite movie of all time.  Michael Douglas was stellar, as was Michael J Fox, Martin Sheen, and Annette Benning. Done by my favorite director as well, Rob Reiner.  9.9/10.

Watched Gran Torino the other day. Been wanting to and finally got around to it. Great flick. Clint did a great job. I was lauching the whole way through the movie with his blatant racist remarks being a major part of the entertainment for me. The story is pretty good and turns out not exactly how you expect. I give it 8.5/10. Great flick.

 I really liked that one too. If we're going to add older movies we've seen recently I'll toss in DAVE with Kevin Kline and Sigourney Weaver. He is a look alike for the President and that's where things get started...     8.0/10.0 for me.

Was that the one where he hated the Jews and thought they were plotting against him? 

 

Oh wait, that was real life! :smileywink:

 

Good flick, though.  Gibson was one of my very favorite actors until it became too embarrassing. (Kind of like Danny Glover; must have been something in the water while they were filming Lethal Weapon.)

^ He's still my favorite actor.  My respect for him is on a professional level.  While his off-screen persona is a mixed bag, I'll never know him personally.  Same goes for Cruise.  He was acting like a total whack job there for a while. Doesn't bother me though.  I only like him for his movies.  

 

So many people decide not to see movies starring actors whose lives are less than desirable.  If I thought that way, I'd never go the theaters again!  :  )

Agreed.  Everyone gives Cruise shit about always playing the same role, but I don't care if he plays that role well.  Top Gun is probably my favorite movie ever.  I must've seen it for the first time when I was about four years old.  I certainly didn't care if it was cheesy back then, and I still don't.

We watched Gran Torino the other night and I have to say it was really better than I expected. My wife was in tears at the end and I was surprised that I liked it as much as I did.

8.0/10.0 for me on that one.

Re: Movie Review Thread

Just watched Eagle Eye and The i Inside.

 

Eagle Eye was a bit OTT for an Enemy of the State style of movie, but the pacing was amazing. I had to pause the movie part way through just to catch my breath! Of course there were plot holes that I just had to look the other way for, but still in the end it was an entertaining if far fetched ride.

 

The i Inside was a jumping back and forth film where you don't really know where or when your frame of reference should be anchored. I'm still making my mind up on it, but  I do like movies that aren't linear, like Memento or Lost Highway. The i Inside was not in the same league as those movies but I think it was mostly good. When I sort out what I think really happened then I'll know more! It also had Wilson from House who had the same hair style I had about 10 years ago. I'll have to

 

My wife also rented me Max Payne, since she knows I like the games and once expressed an interest in the film when it was still just in the previews stage. I hope I am not too disappointed in it since the reviews weren't particularly glowing. I have a fairly forgiving taste in movies though.

Max Payne? Watch it then rate it outta 10. I'm just curious what you think. I'll post my rating at that point (so I don't influence your decision)

Saw Gran Torino, 4/10 and I thought Vietnamese were called "gooks" and not Koreans/Chinese?  Hell, I don't know but it was after all a decent "you kids get off my lawn" flick and <<Spoiler***>>>, the kid gets the car..  Saw Pineapple Express (6/10), the only reason it gets a 6 is because I'm personally completely in lust with Seth Rogan...  I might have enjoyed it more had I been as high as the characters are supposed to be.  Also saw the Zemeckis(?) Beowulf, and man they've got to start making porn with that sh*t (cgi)!  Good flick, worth a rent.

I saw transformers (2007) yesterday...and it was average. 5/10. The only reason why I give it a 5/10 is becuase of the special effects. The acting was pathetic and Meagan Fox needs to show more skin

I rented "Righteous Kill". Not bad, I thought I'd picked out the one doing the killing four different times. I'd give it a 7/10. Points off because it's been done before, but the acting was good and I really didn't catch on until the last part of it.

They all look alike, anyway, Chinese aren't gooks either.  :smileywink:

 

no, they don't look alike. Each Asian race is very distinct looking.

Not serious, see the winky?

Role Models 8/10

Genuinely funny R-rated comedy with good performances by Sean William Scott and Paul Rudd and the nerdy kid from Superbad. I really liked it, I laughed a lot and it was also genuinely touching. Don't see it with your parents though, that would make for uncomfortable viewing, it's got a lot of filthy jokes. Also I've never heard so many nasty words being uttered by such a small child in a movie. Also there is a middle aged lady in it played by Jane Lynch who is really, really funny, she's a gifted comedy actress.

 

The plot is about two guys being sentenced to community service, they have to be a buddy to some children, one is a really foul-mouthed and misbehaving 10-year old, the other is a nerdy teenager who does LARPing (google it if you don't know what LARP is). At first they hate it, but after a while they start to bond.

My wife also rented me Max Payne, since she knows I like the games and once expressed an interest in the film when it was still just in the previews stage. I hope I am not too disappointed in it since the reviews weren't particularly glowing. I have a fairly forgiving taste in movies though.


 Max Payne? Watch it then rate it outta 10. I'm just curious what you think. I'll post my rating at that point (so I don't influence your decision)


Will do. I just have to get time to watch alone. If I don't force her to watch MP with me, then she won't force me to watch Bride Wars with her...

Heh I watched Ice Age 3. 'Twas pretty funny and great to watch. I was extremely worried that it would suck because most threequels suck but I was pleasently surprised. I loved the first two. 8/10
