Title: Movie Lovers?
Post by: Super Zombie on May 02, 2008, 01:24:13 AM
Are there any movie lovers here? I mean people who watch a lot of movies, not just the new ones. If so, what are your favorite movies?
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: razer84 on May 02, 2008, 02:36:51 AM
i like watching old science fiction movies, most of them are just funny but there are some actual good ones.

Favorite movies? well, where should I begin.
My favorite movies are:
 LoTR Trilogy
 The Dark Knight
 No Country For Old Men
 Kelly's Heros(My favorite Clint Eastwood movie)
 Original Star Wars Trilogy
 Jet Li's Fearless
 Way of the Dragon
 Monty Python and the Holy Grail
 Monty Python and the Meaning of Life
 The Patriot
 Halloween(Original)
 Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

 There's probably more but these are what I can think of. My favorite recent movie is definatly No County for Old Men. Better than the Dark Knight.

Post by: SirIngusBingus on May 06, 2009, 09:41:22 PM
I absolutely love the movie School of Rock. The whole idea of it is awesome. And I know a lot of you probably don't like Jack Black, but you have to admit he was hilarious in that movie.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?

He did a good job, not my style of movie though
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?

I like Jack Black. Some of his movies are great, others... not so much.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: SirIngusBingus on May 06, 2009, 10:34:27 PM
He makes a great voice-over actor too. I know it's a kid's movie, but did anyone see Kung Foo Panda?
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: Magus Darkwind on May 06, 2009, 10:42:44 PM
Right here
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: SuperFireKirby on May 07, 2009, 12:27:02 AM
nope, and I dont plan to any time soon though his voice acting of Lenny in Shark Tale was great.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: SirIngusBingus on May 07, 2009, 02:04:37 AM
Kung Foo Panda was actually a lot better than I expected. It's worth seeing once. The first time I saw Shark Tale, I couldn't believe it was really him. It's painfull to talk up that high.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: SuperFireKirby on May 08, 2009, 09:44:35 PM
But definatly worth it. Unless you're in the real world. :P

nightmare on elm street 1 and 3 blew me away, i thought that was the most clever horror movie, that and silence of the lambs. i recently got into the whole horror deal lol
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: SuperFireKirby on September 23, 2009, 11:35:15 PM
If you like horror, try Halloween. The original 1979 version. Not the new crappy Rob Zombie version.

I've been watching a bunch of old Bond films.  Got through The Spy Who Loved Me, The Living Daylights, For Your Eyes Only, and Goldeneye.  Also finally seeing Batman Begins cause I never did.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: SirIngusBingus on September 26, 2009, 02:32:32 AM

Good movie. So was the sequel.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: KefkaticFanatic on September 26, 2009, 07:27:21 PM
Agreed.  It starts a bit slow, but ends up still being pretty enjoyable.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: SuperFireKirby on September 29, 2009, 02:20:41 AM
I like how it takes the comical-ness out of batman. No over complicated plots filled with obvious flaws made by goofy super villains that don't look nearly as goofy as Adam West in tights.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?

Yes, but nothing is more entertaining than the Jack Nicholson Joker.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: SuperFireKirby on September 29, 2009, 07:53:11 PM
Nope. And I'm pretty sure there's a reference to Watchmen in the movie."You can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs." I think that was it. But just be sure never to rub another mans rhubarb.Heheheh.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: SuperFireKirby on November 08, 2009, 07:26:19 PM
Anyone seen Zombieland or Men Who Stare At Goats. They both look amazing but I can't decide which one I should see.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: KefkaticFanatic on November 08, 2009, 09:57:59 PM
Zombieland was awesome, the other film has an average 5.9/10.  Should be an easy decision.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: SuperFireKirby on November 09, 2009, 08:49:57 PM
Another good looking movie is Pirate Radio.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?

Zombieland. 

I've seen both, Men Who Stare At Goats may have been ruined because it just came out when I saw it yet it was put in the small theatre (my town sucks, so good movies sometimes go in a tiny theatre that isn't worth paying for)
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: SuperFireKirby on January 23, 2010, 02:09:09 AM
The Book of Eli looks pretty awesome too. I thinks I'll go see it tomorrow.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: Maretocks on January 24, 2010, 02:06:58 PM
Robin Hood, Inception, that vampire one, Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief looks pretty average, but I still might see it, and Clash of the Titans.

The cliche title award goes to the last one.

They all look pretty good from the trailers. And of course the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, but that doesn't really count as it's anime. And I doubt it will be released in UK, US, AU any time soon.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: Harvest on January 24, 2010, 04:05:18 PM
Robin Hood looks epic.  If its anything like Gladiator, then I'll have to see it in theatres and buy it.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: Qew on January 26, 2010, 05:47:06 AM
don't you guys think like hollywoodised films are all the same... like avatar, it was freaking epic but a little bit too cliche... still freaking pwns a lot of other stuff... aparantly the original idea the guy came up with was way awesomer, but oh well >_>

the lovely bones was cool, depressing... but cool >_>
donnie darko was pretty cool too, and v for vendetta lol guy fawks guy was awesome
and haha die hard was epic
also the nightmare on elm street series, pretty epic things in there, like this one guy got sucked into a bed and then a massive geiser of blood spurted forth and then gravity screwed up so all of it stuck to the roof.
favourite movie though could probably be Pan's Labyrinth. I love that freaking movie, it's so cool.

alice in wonderland seems like it's going to be cool I mean with that psycho Johnny Depp <_>
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: SuperFireKirby on January 27, 2010, 10:33:40 PM
Pan's Labyrinth was epic. So was V for Vendetta. Almost as good as the novel.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: Harvest on January 27, 2010, 11:23:17 PM
V for Vendetta is amazing.

as is Donnie Darko, thanks for mentioning that one Qew!

I love watching movies. District 9 is next in the queue, then the Hurt Locker.

Suggestions?
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: Maretocks on January 28, 2010, 07:21:37 AM
District 9 again, plus an extra helping of District 9. And maybe after that some moar District 9.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: SuperFireKirby on January 28, 2010, 08:48:50 PM
And then for a grand finale, top if off with the halo movie that district 9 was made to replace on short notice. ::)

Just saw Watchmen. Pretty disappointed with it after the comic was so amazing.

really?  I thought Watchmen was amazing.  Though, it might be because I never read the comic.

They changed the entire ending of it.

They changed the entire ending of V for Vendetta too and that was still good.

(Though not as good as the original, granted).

I haven't seen it myself, but from the people that have told me about it,  you either love it or hate it. No one I've talked to has been in the between.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: kotorfanboy on March 29, 2010, 02:36:02 AM
Well I don't love it, but I think technically, in terms of acting and character development and plot and the whole gambit, it's a great movie.

However, it feels slow and campy for the casual watcher. While I try to look past things like pacing in my movies, it could have used a bit more energy at points.

Man, I'm behind on the times.  Haven't seen any Iron Man movies or Transformer films, and I have no desire to watch Kick Ass.  So many movies that don't seem that interesting which I wouldn't want to shell out money for.  Even to rent.  I watch tons of movies on Netflix Wii and On Demand, though.

But let me tell you how awesome the My Little Pony movie was...

Yeah, if you have Netflix, internet connection and the Wii, you can get a disk that you put in the Wii and can watch movies any time you want.  Granted, the movies generally aren't that fantastic, but I did find all the episodes of the X Files on it. :P

And Sir Awesomesauce, I won't say I'll never watch it, but it'll probably be no time in the near future. :P

No, I mean actually wasting your time streaming from the Wii.  You'll get significantly better quality on your PC.  It's more worth it to wait for the damn DVDs to arrive.

Well, if you have a shitty TV then sure, but the max it can do is what, 480p?  Everything else can give you 1080p streaming (and with 5.1 surround soon).
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: SuperFireKirby on May 10, 2010, 11:18:44 PM
720p at best I'd say. The wii isn't total garbage. I would hope it could at least do better than Youtube.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: KefkaticFanatic on May 11, 2010, 12:01:38 AM
It can't.  Youtube can do 1080p.  And in terms of video quality, yes.  It is.

Dude, I was just going to! That is my ALL-TIME favorite movie! In sixth grade, the first thing I would do EVERY day when I got home was watch the Nightmare Before Christmas!

As a result of this obsession, I now have it memorized, songs and all; I can play all the songs on the piano; and... Well, the list goes on and on.

I don't know if you wanted me to rave about it or, if you haven't seen it, recommend it, so I'll just do both.
That movie is pretty epic. I would recommend it if you like artistic and strange movies. And if you can put up with amazing songs by Danny Elfman. Many *cough* narrow-minded *cough* people say it sucks and it's the most boring movie they've ever seen. It's not.

 Sorry if this reply is too late (or too long). XD
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?

Nightmare on Elm Street was not great.

I'm never watching a 3D movie in a regular cinema again. Everything is discoloured (darkened), the glasses are a bit of a nuisance, and they really don't do much in the way of depth. However, up at IMAX; when the screen is so big you don't notice the edges of the screen. Makes for much better depth.

It's out on dvd. If you want to watch it, I'd recommend renting it, not buying it.
Though I don't rent movies...

If you look in the box where it says "Rated PG", under that it says "for fantasy action/violence involving scary images and situations, and for a smoking caterpillar."

Night Shamalalalalalan wrote the screen play and directeds it, probably. I'm guess Paramount is keeping him tied up in the trunk of a car somewhere for this disaster.

The book was much better than that, actually. And so was the Tim Burton remake in 2005.

Roald Dahl was a genius... and the '71 film makes his book seem too happy.

9 is an amazing, completely under-rated movie.

If I had one complaint about it, it would be that it was too short. 1 hour 19 minutes. I wish something so awesome would be awesome for even longer.

I saw the movie City of ember when it came out with some friends. It was pretty awesome, kinda generic in parts but still pretty awesome.

Then I read the original book. It's exactly the same (almost word for word) but missing half of the scenes and is considerably less cool.

so there, it took the book, copied it out exactly then threw in a couple epic scenes, making it better.

:|  I have never heard of either.

Anyway, my point is that the majority of the time, the source material is so beloved by its fans that an adaptation will somehow just not live up to their standards.

But apparently when the source material sucks then you can make a good adaptation?

The Lord of the Rings movie was well near the original. But the movie was still not as good, especially considering that Tom Bombadil didn't make the cut in the first one.

You have a good point there, my friend. We can't exactly call it bad when we've loved the source most of our lives. Just because a director's vision was different than we had expected doesn't mean we have to shoot it down... in some cases it does, though.

And for the record, City of Ember the book was way better than the movie. xP

Hold on. I'm contradicting myself. o_o

Meh... it would have been better without Ben Stiller.

I just watched much of Meet the Parents, and it's the funniest movie I've ever seen. Murphy's Law movies are usually funny. xD (I didn't watch all of it because it was on DVR, and the TV happened to be messing up when we recorded it).
 
Truthfully, every time I see Ben Stiller, I think he's hilarious. :P That's just me, though...everyone has opinions.

This morning, since she asked if I wanted to come, I went to the movies with my mother, brother, and sister. I walked into the movie theater of "Tangled" and saw (not very promisingly) a lot of little kids. I was pretty sure it would be an overwhelming "meh" with an annoyingly predictable plot.

I was very pleasantly surprised. It was actually a very good and cleverly thought-out movie, though you would never be able to guess from the previews. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who still has it playing in his or her local theater.

Depends on what kind of movies you like.

Fantasy: LotR Trilogy

Horror: 28 Weeks Later(probably the best horror movie of the decade. Most horror movies suck these days.)

Sci-Fi: Star Wars [/thank you Cpt. Obvious]

Comedy: Either Blazing Saddles or Young Frankenstein. Two of the best comedies ever.

Black(Dark) Comedy: The Lady Killers or Inglorious Basterds

Old Movies: Mr. Deeds Goes to Town and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde are probably my two favorite movies from the 1930's. Along with the Flash Gordon movies.

While it's certainly not Miyazaki's best film, and doesn't have an amazing storyline, it's fantastically animated, with some parts that will definitely make you  raise your eyebrows and say, "Oooh, that's cool..."

Or both. :P And if you're not going to watch either one, no comment is necessary.

Might watch, might not watch. I'm not really captivated by Pokemon movies. The only one I liked was the one with Celebi in it.

The only one of those I've seen is The Shining, which is Amazing!

Oh, just watch The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnasus. Insanely weird movie, but an insanely good movie too.

Also the last film Heath Ledger was in.

OKAY SO THESE AREN'T MOVIES, THEY ARE TV SHOWS I'M WATCHING ON NETFLIX/DVD RENTALS.

1. Heroes. Old TV show from 2007, but still entertaining.
2. Chuck. Watch from episode 1, and you won't regret it.
There's an unexpected twist at the end of the second season, but it makes a turn for the better.

LOVED both the V for Vendetta graphic novel and movie. But contrary, I thought Grownups was terrible. Kung fu Panda would have been better without Jack Black.

Anyways, got Ponyo set to record on my DVR. Never seen it before and can't wait to watch it!

Oh no, it WAS. I find it funny when actors are in movies where they make fun of themselves.
I do love Jack Black, so... I love that movie.

I DO have a very long list of favorite movies, none in a top 10... its hard to decide.

Jack Black is ok. And no, Kung Fu Panda would have been far worse without Jack Black. He pretty much made the movie for me.

Grownups wasn't even mildly good. It wasn't as bad as others, but it was still bad.

In many movies, there are a pair of "bad guys" that are either stupid or don't really do much or doesn't help at all or sometimes helps the "good guys." It's called comic relief.  Take for example - Jessie and James for Pokemon, Ragetti and Pintel for Pirates of the Caribbean, and what you said - Iggy and Spike for Super mario bros.

Basically been watching a non-stop brigade of amazing movies that I've never seen before. Within the last 48 hours I've watched:

Spirited Away- Now one of my favorite animated films EVER.

Black Dynamite- I can't even describe how awesome this movie is

The Lady Killers- It has TOM HANKS

and lastly PULP FICTION- this movie is one Bad Mother Fucker.

So last week I actually got around to watching the latest Pirates of the Carribean movie and I was pleasantly surprised.

Granted, about 75% of the plot didn't make a lick of sense, but I was having too much fun to care. My only real complaints besides that are that the obligatory romantic sub-plot was sappy and forced between two of the flattest named characters in the film, and Blackbeard really doesn't live up to his fearsome reputation.

But other than that, it was worth eight bucks to see (not in 3D, 3D sucks as always, but the regular screening is good).

It still fell victim to a lot of the pitfalls of the previous two movies, what I named in the above post, but the major difference is that while it was over two hours long, it didn't really feel like it this time.

Dead Man's Chest and At World's End just really started to drag after a bit, but the pacing in this movie was MUCH improved.

Watch any movie from the 1930's and 40's and you'll never find modern movies adequate again.

Some of my favorites:
Citizen Kane,
The Hunchback of Notre Dame,
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,
Mr. Deeds Goes To Town,
It Happened One Night,
Random Harvest,
Make Way For Tomorrow

I completely agree with SFK, the dark knight was only meh and it was only that good because of heath ledger. All the other actors had alright~bad performances. And Inception is not the best movie ever. :P I could agree with HP but they're based on books... nah don't really agree with your choices.

I somehow stumbled upon this one amazingly dark movie. It's called Confessions, it's a foreign language film that came out last year but it won so many awards. Here's the wikipedia page, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confessions_%28film%29 Plot summary has spoilers though.

It's based on a book so of course it's great, but I can't find the book anywhere whereas the film should be easier to find. If you like that kind of dark psychological drama I'd reccomend it.

Yah it was kind of...disturbing but I liked it. Kind of reminded me just of being a social outcast. I remember what that felt like. I must say, I kind of felt a sick pleasure at the end when he killed the girl's jock boyfriend. Also I loved where he sees them together and feels the bitter, jealous hatred, and drags his hands against the wall, etc.

He was very...creepy looking though.

That was GLORIOUS. It was like Loki was a rag doll. But ouch, that had to hurt.

And Hulk screaming Iron Man into waking up... so great.

While Avengers was good, I couldn't help but cringe when I saw how the Marvel depictions piss all over the Norse pantheon... I mean, Thor and Loki brothers? Yeah, right...

Also, while Thor might be badass in the mythology, he is neither the strongest fighter nor the god of war. Nobody show Heimdall and Tyr any respect...

Anyway, he shouldn't have been raised alongside Thor. While the gods of Asgard were quite liberal regarding having kids with different parents, Loki and Thor have very little in common, except that they lived near each other.

My thoughts too  They portrayed him as an equal to the other Avengers, whose man-made technology seems to be equal to those of a magical god.  I understand if Captain America's shield can deflect Mjölnir, but I think it should at least have been capable of breaking the glass cage without too much effort.  I thought both he and the hammer were magical? 

He seemed to have the same strength as the Hulk, but less durability, though he makes up with that in being able to summon lightning. 

Captain America was portrayed as being slightly weaker than the other Avengers in terms of intelligence, strength and combat experience.  He was easily tossed around by Loki, and even when Iron Man came to help, the captain looked kind of useless. 

I think Hulk was a bit overpowered.  There were like 30 aliens simultaneously auto-firing at him and he wasn't harmed the slightest bit, just overwhelmed in terms of movement.

Wasn't Nick Fury shot twice, and he didn't die? 

Also, after Thor fell it looked like he became unworthy to wield his hammer for a moment.  He opened his hand as if calling his hammer but Mjölnir didn't come.   I wonder how he regained control so quick, and without doing much physically.

To be fair, since the class cage was tumbling through like... 30,000 feet at a rapid pace, Thor was trying his damn best to escape without injuring himself.

And I think he couldn't pick up his hammer for a moment because he was maybe damaged for a bit? But then he got over it or something.

...I don't know diddly squat about Norse mythology and I really should I am sorry

I thought that since Thor was a god he should have been able to take on the other Avengers with ease.  I didn't like when Mjölnir hit Captain America's shield(and there was an explosion) The shield wasn't dented but when the aliens shot his shield it got all scratched up. 

Hulk isn't a juggernaut so why didn't he ever get hurt?

They made Captain America look like a stupid ass throughout the whole movie.  He was in the ice for 70 years (that could be wrong) not a millennia

Nick Fury isn't Wolverine or something.  Why was he alive at the end of the movie?

And who was the guy talking to the alien leader at the end scene after the credits?

Well, in the mythology, Thor is decidedly more badass than portrayed in the movie. For instance, he's said to have been able to level mountains with his hammer (and lightning usually accompanies each strike). He also had a pair of rather fearsome pets. To be fair, though, he was deceived on several occasions.

I don't know if the English article explains it as much as the Norwegian one does, but I think it should list the most important of Thor's merits anyway.

I like the Dark Knight because the Joker's character is fascinating, not really because of the action. And I personally enjoyed Hugo... it was lengthy but the Parisian atmosphere and the characters were quite engaging to me. I still might see the Avengers. :P idk. Depends on whether I get the chance or not.

I quite enjoyed Men in Black 3. I had never seen a Men in Black film before besides short sections of the second one, but I went and watched the first one later. The first was probably the best, but the third is pretty close. From what I've seen and heard, the second was pretty bad...

Also Danny Elfman's main theme just kicks ass. It's amazing to me that MIB was his first oscar nomination, though.

You have to keep in Lind, back when Hitchcock made his films, no one had ever done anything quite like them. And since, HUNDREDS of films have taken his ideas in one way or another. Thats probably the reason his movies are predictable to you.

So tonight I watched "The Pirates! Band of Misfits" (known in other countries by the title of the book it's based on, "The Pirates! in an Adventure with Scientists"). It was absolutely brilliant. It's the type of movie SFK would love for its smartass, nonstop visual humor. The animation style, which is about like the producer's other works, "Wallace and Gromit" as well as "Chicken Run," is quirky but you'll grow to love it after a bit.

I actually read that book several years ago and remember finding it very intelligently funny. I think I'll have to go read it again, because I definitely enjoyed the film that much.

Yeah, SFK, I'd suggest you watch this film.

Saw The Iron Giant in a bargain bin the other day, and was all like "NOSTALGIA." So I bought it, watched it, and I must say, it is just as amazing as I remember(the last time I watched it was when I was probably, like, 8). Possibly even more so because now I get all the historical humor they threw into the movie. If you have not seen The Iron Giant, watch it right now. It's probably one of the best animated movies I've ever seen.

Finally got around to watching Donnie Darko (the Director's Cut version).

I watched it once, earlier this week, and I had originally intended to come straight here and write my opinions on it. Then I realized there were a lot of things I didn't understand about it. So I watched it again, this time with my brother. I still didn't really understand it, but this time I expected not to. I'm not sure you're supposed to.

It's one of the best films I've seen in a while, I think. I quite enjoyed it. It's easy to see why it has such a cult following.

For those of you who don't know or haven't seen it, Donnie Darko is a highly acclaimed movie about a teenager who talks a lot to someone named Frank. Frank is a six-foot-tall talking bunny rabbit and easily the creepiest thing I've seen in a movie in quite some time. It's a science fiction movie, about time travel really, and it keeps you guessing even after you finish it. I'm honestly not sure what to make of this film, other than the fact that I liked it and it was very engaging.

8/10, worth seeing...in my opinion.

Post by: SlowPokemon on October 10, 2012, 03:20:47 AM
Frankenweenie was really super awesome, I loved it more than I expected, but I don't recommend you go see it necessarily. It takes a certain mindset to not just go "wtf is this and how is disney releasing it." Yet, this film feels more like Disney than recent Disney releases. Take a look at some scenes from classic Disney movies--the forest scene from Snow White; Maleficent's transformation in Sleeping Beauty; pretty much the entire movie Pinnochio. What do they have in common? They're scary. Scarier than you would probably think. This film taps into that. And rather than Burton's recent style of "let's make this freak show look really pretty, but have a meh plot and not give a crap about continuity," this is a film with an actual story that keeps it together the whole way through(!), conveyed through that odd-yet-undeniably-charming stopmotion medium.

I think the characters were a huge part of this movie's success. Young Victor Frankenstein is a bit of a loner, but like Edward Scissorhands he's comparably normal when juxtaposed with the bizarre people surrounding him. And yet it's hard not to get into the gleefully weird spirit with characters such as "Weird Girl," a shriveled up girl with ridiculously big round eyes and a cat to match, or "Edgar E'Gore," a hunchback with perpetually bent arms and freakishly long slender fingers (voiced with surprising energy by The Middle's Atticus Shaffer).

On the surface, it's essentially a childrens' horror film. But on a deeper level, it's classic Disney--the story of a boy and his (nevertheless undead) dog. It's weird, but it's also a lot of fun.

Argo, The Master, 7 Psychopaths, Skyfall, Looper, Trouble With the Curve, Frankenweinie(and Pitch Perfect actually looks pretty decent as well).

Well movies with zombies and ghosts are100% fictional so....how is this relevant? Shaun of the Dead, Poltergeist, 28 Days/Weeks Later, Nightmare Before Christmas. All of these are great movies and all of them have zombies/ghosts. No one watches them because they believe ghosts and zombies are real(well...maybe Poltergeist), they watch them because they are fantastic movies that just happen to feature zombies/ghosts.

Open-mindedness is one of the keys to having a fantastic life.

I've lately been watching movies I wanted to see in theatres last year.

Saw Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. A bit hard to follow, none of the characters besides Gary Oldman's were developed enough for me to really care about them, and it was a bit dull at many times but it was still fairly decent. 6.5/10

Also saw Midnight In Paris, it was very interesting. The humor was witty, I thought the casting was awesome and the whole movie was pulled off excellently. Only problem I had was that Owen Wilson's character could get kind of annoying at times. But a great movie over all. 8.5/10

Saw The Transporter today.

It was, hands down, the dumbest action movie I've ever seen. I'm not sure whether I should thrash it for being a bunch of fight scenes tied together by lack of logic, or praise it for being a parody on the entire action film genre. If it was intended to be serious, it dethroned The Dark Knight Rises as "Plot hole movie of the year".

I guess it kinda falls somewhere in the middle, I can perceive it as both but it's not doing either particularly well.

So after Disney's take-over of Lucasfilms, they just announced a new Star Wars prequel trilogy, VII, VIII and XI. Supposedly the 3 episodes were written at the same time the original trilogy was written, so it isn't going to be based on anything canon up to now. I have my trust in Disney, they make great movies, I just don't know if I'll enjoy the new movies if it isn't based off anything that I know.

I'll just have to wait till 2015 and see.

I didn't think the jokes were too old. Donkey Kong Jr., Mario Kart, and modern FPSs were most of the jokes.

Anyway, Wreck-it-Ralph was very good. It was formulaic, but it was a good way to show how the tried-and-true Disney formula can be presented in a way that feels fresh. 8/10.

I mostly prefer thrillers, horrors and mysterious movies (such as detective movies) for the most part as I want excitement and something to think about. My favorite movie is "The Enemy of the State" which is an incredible thriller. The best horror movie imo is The Amityville Horror. It's been over 30 years old and yet it hasn't been beaten. Other examples of great thrillers/horrors are Shutter Island, Face/Off, 1408 & Butterfly Effect. Two of the best movies I've seen are actually both amazing dramas: Crash & Babel. I'm also a big Bond fan and I've seen most of the movies several times. Skyfall was indeed amazing.
Anyways, as for TV series (maybe the wrong topic but whatever) I think these amongst others are really good: Lost, Jericho, Heroes, Touch, Persons Unknown, Midsomer Murders, Medium & The Walking Dead.

^Haven't seen it, but anything from Seth MacFarlane is guaranteed to be complete shit. Even Marky Mark couldn't make his stuff good.

Finally saw The Dark Knight Rises. Twas pretty good, but it had some problems:

A. Waaaaaaay too much self-loathing. I mean, the first quarter of the movie was just Bruce Wayne hating his life and Alfred telling him he's not allowed to be Batman anymore.

2. Not enough Batman. We get, what, 3 Batman scenes in the whole movie?(Motorcycle chase and Catwoman, Bane fight #1, Bane fight #2 and bomb chase. I think that's it) Maybe half an hour of Batman in an almost 3 hour movie. NOT ENOUGH.

3. The Ra's Al Ghul child thingy at the last second(not gonna spoil it, even though it's not that big of a surprise) just left me scratching my head as to what the point of it was. It was kinda dumb, and all her actions following it were kinda dumb.

E. If you're gonna give your villain an insanely muffled voice, don't make him sound like Shaun Connery to boot. Seriously, Bane was difficult to understand at many points of the movie.

D. ROBIN'S NAME IS NOT ROBIN. IT IS DICK GRAYSON, DARN IT.(The first Robin, anyway)

But overall, The Dark Knight Rises was still a great movie. Not as good as The Dark Knight though. Heath Ledger's Joker is just waaaaaaaay too good(one of the best movie villains of all time, easily).

Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: Cobraroll on December 31, 2012, 04:36:33 PM
What I didn't think made sense about that movie was (SPOILERS):

How Wayne, broke and with a hurt back, made his way back from Pakistan, entered Gotham undetected, and, even though he was short on time, took his time to paint a freaking bat symbol on that bridge before he arrived.

Also, a 4 megaton nuclear warhead isn't that effective when detonated on the ground. Half the shock wave will go straight into the ground, most of the other half will go directly skyward. Only a tiny percentage of it will expand horizontally and damage stuff, and it will deplete very quickly with so many big buildings in between. There's a reason why warheads usually detonate a few hundred metres above ground.

Also, for some reason, when the Army is sent to Gotham, the first vehicles in their convoy are artillery guns. Those have NOTHING to do in Gotham in a situation like that. Even disregarding the collateral damage, they would be hilariously impractical fighting in the city itself. A battery of them on the other side of the river would be the most efficient way of using them. I guess the director wanted to use tanks, but had to settle for self-propelled artillery because tanks, being three times heavier, have to drive really far apart when crossing bridges, or the army had none available.

The big fight between mobsters and police was idiotic too. All the mobsters had guns, the police had not, yet everybody drop their arms and go straight for a fistfight instead.

I didn't even think about *spoiler kinda*the effectiveness of the warhead. I was too busy thinking that if the warhead is so insanely unstable that it will detonate itself in 5 minutes, dropping onto concrete and dragging it down a street(which Batman does before taking it into the sky) probably would have set it off.

And Slow, shaddap. The Dark Knight Rises had a bunch of problems with its plot, and refusing to recognize them is frivolous.

Post by: Zunawe on January 01, 2013, 08:02:02 AM
The only reason they did the thing with Ra's Al Ghul's child was because they needed a way to explain all the coincidences such as Bane knowing exactly where the secret tunnel was. I didn't like that. I would rather Bane had been some mysterious and well-planned villain where he was doing something that he had been planning for years. The way Bane died was terrible in my opinion. I mean, really? Batman has this giant fight with him and nearly destroys him by breaking his mask, and then he just gets shot with giant guns by catwoman while batman's just lying on the ground with a gun to his face. I agree with the thing about the random journey from Pakistan to a blocked-off and guarded island. There was no explanation. Also, a countdown would have been really nice. They show you about a week's worth of days, and all of a sudden the bomb is going to explode tomorrow.

There were faults, but I agree with slow. At least try to just watch a movie while you're watching it. No need to focus on all those little things until at least you've finished watching.

Also, the Robin thing: NOBODY IS GOING TO GET THE REFERENCE IF THEY CALL HIM DICK GREYSON. The point was to get everybody who watched the movie to go "Icwutudidthar"

Something crazy:

The extended Two Towers is 235 minutes
The extended Return of the King is 263 minutes

The total length of all the Lord of the Rings movies that has been released is 895 minutes or 14 hours and 55 minutes. I'm not sure many movie series can claim to be that long and there are still two more movies to be made. (Star Wars is a little over 13 hours.)

And I do agree with you on the Ledger thing. I love every scene he's in to death, but for every non-Joker scene, I found myself pretty much just waiting for the next Joker scene. And after he was caught, I basically didn't even care what happened next.

Fun fact: The scene where Ledger is walking out of the hospital and it's blowing up was written so that he just walked out and onto the bus. Instead, he completely improvised turning around and the button not working.

Yep, I knew dat.

A WAY MORE FUN FACT: The several different writers of the movie all had their own ideas of the Joker's motivation, character and backstory, but they decided NOT to discuss them with each other, and instead produced a script where different parts of the script are written with different character interpretations in mind, so that the Joker's actions seem genuinely disordered and unpredictable.

Great Expectations is being made into a film starring a bunch of Harry Potter people--Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, and Ralph Fiennes are all in it!

Or, I should say, was made and were in it. Because this movie was released in the United Kingdom back in November. Why is there no US release date yet? It looks fantastic and I just read the book for school--actually going to take a class period and teach the class about it.

I saw The Great Gatsby for the second time, it is truly an excellent film. Probably because Luhrmann decided to actually stick to the book.

Daisy is my favorite character. I hate her so much. I loved reading The Great Gatsby because all of the characters are disgusting and selfish other than Gatsby and, to some extent, Nick. That translated pretty well to Luhrmann's movie, though too often it portrayed Daisy as an innocent victim when in reality she was the instigator of many if not most of the bad things that happened.

It's honestly not a bad movie it's just terrible by ghibli standards. The first 45 minutes are incredible but then the rest is awful, the story just falls apart and I'm not even sure the writers knew what was going on. Hayao Miyazaki's touch is notably absent and the plot can hardly be called a plot. On the plus side though the animation and music are incredible.

Largely was faithful. A few character roles are changed and the climax gives a bit more detail than the book does, but I feel as if the changes had purpose rather than just altering things for the sake of altering things. I've seen a lot worse adaptations.

I recently watched both the 2013 and 1974 film versions of The Great Gatsby; overall, I'd say that the 2013 version better captured the feel of the book, although it's still lacking in some areas (using modern music, for example, is a very jarring contrast in tone; building on that point, the beginning half-or-so has a completely different feel than the latter part, as if the director wanted to go in one direction for the mood of the film, but changed his mind part of the way through, yet didn't bother to redo the first part at all).

However, although the beginning scenes of the 1974 version capture the feel of the book better than those of the 2013 version (right up until the point where Nick first meets Gatsby- at that scene, it stops), the rest of the film is lacking. Completely unnecessary rearrangements of/additions to various parts of the book are very frustrating (an example being the earlier-mentioned scene of when Nick meets Gatsby for the first time: instead of bumping into him during the party, Gatsby has one of his servants bring him up).

Cast-
Jay Gatsby: Leonardo DiCaprio > Robert Redford
Nick Carraway: Tobey Maguire = Sam Waterston (I didn't really prefer one over the other)
Daisy Buchanan: Carey Mulligan > Mia Farrow (only slightly, though)
Tom Buchanan: Joel Edgerton >>>>> Bruce Dern
Jordan Baker: Elizabeth Debicki < Lois Chiles (both films seemed to downplay Jordan's role)
George Wilson: Jason Clarke < Scott Wilson (only slightly, though)

Maze Runner just looks like another Hunger Games wannabe. Not that I have a super high opinion of The Hunger Games, the movies are alright, but "teens in a dystopian future fighting for freedom and shit" is definitely the dominant trope for movies these days, thanks to The Hunger Games success.

Different
Divergent, Maze Runner, and Hunger Games are all very moderately different.
It's like calling The Hobbit and Twilight a Harry Potter wannabe
Maze Runner is essentially about lab rats, nothing about freedom fighting.
And Divergent was a utopia, the Blue clan just usurped that.  Not freedom fighting.

The maze was a nice idea. But think about the plot points. The amnesiac hero is introduced, thus giving a reason for explaining every intricacy rather than just showing how it works. The hero decides he wants the hardest and most important job, but finds out he needs years of training. He makes a stupid/reckless choice which gets him the job no newcomer should have gotten. He then proceeds to solve mysteries in a short time period that nobody had figured out before, despite them living there much longer. I can't remember where I also saw this, but it seems pretty common.

What did you even like so much about it tho like I found myself zoning out and it was fine and mildly entertaining but it has no value beyond a popcorn movie so I don't know why people keep hyping it up. The same goes for every marvel movie, it's not torture to sit through by any means but there is absolutely nothing about them that sticks with me at all

Ultimately, it all comes back to Whedon: His clear vision for each character and how they might be profitably intermingled; his unexpected knack for action choreography; his funny, tender, immaculately constructed script.

I just thought it was a boring movie that was, more or less, a 2 1/2 hour action sequence. There was a total lack of an interesting plot, the characters are all nice and bland, there's absolutely nothing emotionally engaging in the whole movie, and the action really doesn't offer anything dazzling or visually mind-blowing, aside from from pretty good effects(which you'd expect from a move with that kind of budget). The story was basically three different scenes, Avengers all unite, they fight some dudes on a big floaty ship, they fight some alien dudes in New York. It's not a terrible movie, but it is a dumb movie. A really dumb movie.

You will probably just be one of those people that dislikes things for arbitrary reasons that 90+% us won't understand.

It just does the "summer blockbuster" very well.  Overall flows nicely, script is witty and characters interact well.  Doesn't need some complex layered plot or deep character analysis or anything, just enough to be an enjoyable ride.

It's the kind of movie you go out with a group of friends to see and have a good time.  Not so much one you will be critically analyzing afterwards, but perhaps talking about some scenes or if nerdy enough relations to comics.

See: Independence Day, Air Force One

Also Nocturne, I actually don't know whether I can like one better because ahh they both are just great
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: mikey on October 24, 2014, 02:48:18 PM
Hey kefka did you notice that Peter Quill had 12% of a plan
and Iron Man told pepper to take 12% of the credit?
SFK
@SFK Avengers isn't a 3 act play.  It does a good job of introducing the avengers and actually sets up a conflict within the avengers- A power play between Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor.  Black Widow and Hawkeye have a past, and Hawkeye is under the control of Loki's staff- which, by the way, seems to have the power of an infinity stone, like the Tesseract.  Which is also set up in the avengers, and is expanded in Guardians.  Nick Fury brings along Bruce Banner and when Loki sees this he ALLOWS himself to get captured.  His plan is to turn Bruce Banner into the hulk.  That's pretty much scene one.  Plenty of witty comments too- "Listen well, brother-" *Iron Man crashes into Thor and carries him off* "I'm listening."
Thor: "You have no idea what you are dealing with!"
Iron Man: "Uh, Shakespeare in the park?  Does mother know you weareth her drapes?"
Audience: BURN
Iron Man: "That guy was playing Galaga.  Thought we wouldn't notice, but we did."
Robert Downey Jr. Etc. etc.
Your "lame scene 2 where they fight some dudes on a ship" also contains one of the important turning points of the movie- Agent Phil's death.  This sort of gets the avengers to start working together, with some help/trickery from Nick Fury.  The hulk falls from the sky and lands somewhere far away and thor gets trapped in a glass dome in free fall.  Still a couple of witty comments but this is by far the most conflict-filled part of the movie.  Natasha smashes Hawkeye's head in and he's fixed all of a sudden.
"Suit up."
"So that's what it does." *dies*
"Scene 3" where all of a sudden I guess they're teleported to new York because according to you this had 3 parts, is the main action scene.  Has the epic music, the epic smashes, and you can see them starting to lose to the endless wave of Chitari.  Not only that, but Nick Fury's directors sent a nuke straight toward New York.  The wave of minions dies down for a while and you see bruce banner puttering in on a motorbike.  ("Son, you've got a condition.")  They are able to hold back the chitari for a while, but they can't hold on forever.  Worse, that nuke from earlier is still coming in.  Referencing the power play from earlier, Iron Man is willing to sacrifice himself and carries the nuke through the wormhole (which, of course obviously sprang out of existence from nowhere according to you) and also has a sad moment with Pepper, also kind of ironic too.  Natasha closes the portal with Loki's staff, (what portal?) and of course theatrically on target iron man makes it back through the portal just in time for it to close.
"I AM A GOD!"
*smashes Loki into the floor*
"Puny God."
"Hey you guys ever had Schwarma?"
[close]
Also Avengers theme is A++
tldr don't diss marvel or I get mad  ;D

@maelstrom I don't know if you count this as anything but Avengers made nearly twice as much box as any of the LoTR movies did, in a time where fewer people actually go to theaters.
Yeah.

I will say Robert Downey Jr is absolutely beautiful, no matter the role. And Nocturne, maybe you should consider that when LoTR came out, there was no 3D or D-Box and their correlating up charges, and regular movie tickets were twice as cheap as they are now. If you're suggesting that the Avengers is better than LoTR, than no. Just no. It's not. Ever.

Also, Kefka I know it's supposed to be a "fun" movie and such. It's the reason I don't bother trying to figure out Pacific Rim or Godzilla, which are dumb movies in their own right(dumb, but fucking BAD ASS). But there difference is I actually had fun watching those movies. Avengers was boring to me, basically that's what it comes down to.

As long as you can agree RDJ is great then I think we can still accept one another

In other news I recently watched "Big Trouble in Little China" which is this AMAZING 80s B-movie that anybody who likes campy bullshit films should watch.  It has a funky soundtrack, main character with mullet, tons of cheesy but great one-liners, and a ton of bizarre Chinese mythology stereotypes.  It is hilarious and fantastic.  Disclaimer: I love campy bullshit.  I heavily enjoy Star Trek TOS and all the cheesy stories of kung fu movies.

The animation was incredible, the score was great, and the story was very enjoyable (no romance + lots of feminism = nice job disney). Definitely the best marvel movie I've ever seen and also Disney's best animated film in a few years.

Also I fucking cried at least twice no shame

Mockingjay
Guardians of the Galaxy
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Big Hero 6
The LEGO: Movie

Will not be surprised at all if this is what it looks like

It was good but it felt so overwhelmingly similar in style to Nolan's other film Inception that I couldn't help feeling a sense of staleness, especially considering that Inception is the better film of the two. Interstellar was very good and like I said it's probably a 9/10 or 10/10 for me, but I think that Inception accomplishes everything Interstellar does and does it a little bit better.

But god if you get the chance see Interstellar in IMAX. It's crazy cool.

Imo, Rap isn't even music. It's like some bored guys are just writing corny poems about their girlfriend who broke their heart. Then they "speak" it in the same constant voice tone while a beat is in the backround.....
I call it lazy singing :P

The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker
Luigi's Mansion
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
Mario Kart 7
Super Mario 3D Land
Super Smash Bros. 4
Xenoblade Chronicles
Zelda U
I was looking up price for some of your wanted games on eBay, and apparently, a brand new Dark Moon game (with free shipping) is just as expensive as a worn out original Luigi's Mansion!

So I re-watched all six Star Wars movies in a marathon from Episode 1 to Episode 6, partially because I wanted to review them some time before the 7th came out and partially because I had been hearing a lot of hate for Episodes 1, 2, and 3, and I was curious if they were really that much worse than 4, 5, and 6.

I don't see anything wrong with them. In fact I think I like the prequels more than the original three movies. Is there something wrong with me like why does everyone hate them so much

I agree with you actually lol. I've seen all six of the movies countless times but when I watched them all from beginning to end, III definitely stuck out as being the best. The writing is great, the effects are at their most impressive, everything comes to a huge climax and topples into despair.

Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: MaestroUGC on June 10, 2015, 05:29:04 PM
The prequels had a lot of problems, but the least of them is the overall story. That said most people have issues with the prequels because they aren't, nor do they try to be, the original trilogy.

I do agree that Episode III is easily the best, critically or otherwise, in the entire series because it's the one that snaps the entire series into view. Sure, the original trilogy is fairly self contained, both trilogies are; but as it stands the entire series is best interpreted as one story, rather than two parts.

Personally when I re-watch the series this summer my preferred order is 4, 5, 1, 2, 3, 6. It's a much better grand narrative and is probably how I'll introduce them to my kids.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: KefkaticFanatic on June 11, 2015, 01:22:52 AM
Disregarding the first one which was a complete and total mess of a story, 2 and 3 had a perfectly reasonable overarching plot.  Where they fell apart was mostly in acting and dialogue, plus some really weak or nonsensical writing choices, like the vague inclusion of jango fett and horrible way they dealt with grevious.

As far as I know, Disney has been planning on making live-action versions of their classics for a while! They've done Cinderella already, and it was a surprisingly great movie (from what I've heard, I want/need to see it still). Then they have the Beauty and the Beast one coming out, along with The Little Mermaid in the works (for what seems like forever). Then the actual trailers for The Jungle Book and The Legend of Tarzan are out, too. Both look pretty promising! I'm excited! (Coming from the film major who WANTS to make successful live-action films based off of cartoons in the future)
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: Onionleaf on December 23, 2015, 08:31:45 AM
I was a bit sceptical at first about the live-action movies idea, but Cinderella was fantastic, you should definitely watch it! Considering everyone already knows the story, the film makers had to surprise and awe the audience by other means, and I do believe they have succeeded. I don't quite know what to think about The Jungle Book just from watching the trailer, so I'll simply have to wait and see. :) (However, nothing will beat the Russian cartoon version that I watched when I was a kid, it follows the original book)

Do it. If only because Alan Rickman is a caterpillar.

Seriously though, Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland was wonderful (pardon the pun) and captured the weirdness while combining it with Burton's typical dark filter. My one gripe is how it seemed like everything lore-wise had to be explained or given physical form, removing some of the fantasy and replacing it with a world with definite rules.
Spoiler
Imo, the Jabberwocky was the prime example. Giving an appearance to the poetic beast seemed wrong somehow, even if Christopher Lee voiced him.
[close]
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: SlowPokemon on December 24, 2015, 02:19:44 AM
Eh, the original Jabberwocky poem was accompanied by a Tenniel illustration that looked similar to Burton's Jabberwock. So it had an actual form from the beginning. IMO the first movie was very nice, and has maybe my favorite film score by Danny Elfman, who is my favorite composer. So that's saying something. (Seriously, Alice's Theme is such an incredible piece of work.)

So I'm very excited for Alice Through the Looking Glass, not only because of its connection to the previous film which I loved, but because Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are two of my favorite books ever. They're really wonderful (like you said, no pun intended).

Someway, somehow, Kung Fu Panda 3 is nearly almost as good as 2. A little lighter on the serious elements but still incredible all the way through. I'm amazed. Something has managed to match Toy Story in terms of quality threequels. 8.6/10.

reposting from elsewhere because lazy

Saw Captain America: Civil War yesterday. I enjoyed it, but I can recognize and understand its flaws (so if you say you didn't like it, I can probably understand why).

Spoiler
+ Black Panther was great (standing there and taking those bullets from the helicopter... FFWWFFMMWMWMFMFMFMW), especially his scene with Zemo toward the end.
+ Spiderman and his interactions with the others.
+ Airport Battle was 10/10.
+ Zemo killing the super-soldiers actually surprised me, and I liked how that scene went from Captain America, Winter Soldier, and Iron Man making peace to work together to Iron Man vs. the other two (I thought it felt at least somewhat genuine, despite how contrived it might have felt to some people).
+ Vision x Wanda OTP (plus both were awesome using their powers!)

o I felt like the film was more cluttered overall than Age of Ultron, but didn't necessarily feel bloated because I thought it was pulled off better (i.e. everything was related and brought together nicely in the end); it definitely felt like Avengers 2.5 (to be fair, that's what happens when you answer the question "Where are all the other superheroes when this stuff happens?).
o Unlike some people/reviewers, I was perfectly fine with accepting the reasons for the split between the Avengers. With the exception of Tony (who was guilt-ridden- the earlier scene in front of the elevator helped to hammer that in; this is something we've seen before, so at least it's consistent), not everyone else on his side seemed entirely gung-ho about the whole thing, but rather, did it out of necessity. This is something that's definitely easy to look too much in to, so it might detract from the film for a lot of people!
o Killing off a first-act villain again? Really?
o Just a little musing, it would have been interesting if they had killed off a major character, like, Iron Man (Cap accidentally go an inch too far, anybody?).

- Zemo was an interesting character and villain, but not really a good or really developed villain; Zemo could have been more prominent throughout the film; it definitely would have made his final speech about the Avengers more impactful (not that it wasn't already). As it was, he felt like more of a background story to the other plot points/events, which isn't really a good thing.
- There could have been a little bit more humor, especially toward the beginning of the film. The humor that was there was great, though!
- That font that they used for location transitions was kind of weird and felt out of place (the only time it worked was for the "QUEENS" transition because SPIDERMAN HYPE). Maybe because it was too large and didn't have borders (not really a fan of abrupt stuff like that unless it works really really well)? Has it appeared in any other Marvel films? I can't remember.

I liked it but I was ticked that their explanation of Magic was something something dimensional energy
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?
Post by: Dudeman on November 10, 2016, 05:17:18 PM
The MCU aims for a ""realistic"" explanation of the powers of its characters. The first to do this was Thor, with the Bifrost and his magic being described as "technology that we don't understand yet". I haven't seen Doctor Strange yet, but I was curious how they'd explain this one. "Dimensional energy" seems like a fine science-babble explanation to me.
Title: Re: Movie Lovers?

they didn't really explain it though they just said oh yeah dimensional energy it's magic lalala

Post by: BlackDragonSlayer on December 17, 2016, 07:28:03 AM
I saw Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them today. I was duped twice by that movie; twice, I say!

Spoiler
First time was because I thought they were going to play it straight and have Credence "defect" to the good guys and become an informant against Graves.

Second time was kind of my own fault; I reverse-spoilered myself because, though I knew he was playing Grindelwald, I had heard that Johnny Depp wasn't going to be in the movie, so I totally wasn't expecting Graves to be Grindelwald. In hindsight, the Deathly Hallows symbol should have given me enough of a hint, though I thought it was merely a fan nod because of how little significance was put to it at first (i.e. it was half-offscreen during its first appearance).

Also, Eddie Redmayne was great. Good movie overall, though I'm fearful how the sequels might turn out.

Whoa, what? Force Awakens is a much better movie than Rogue One. Fine, it basically borrowed A New Hope's story, but at least there was good character development, and it's a decent story framework to begin with. Rogue One didn't explore anybody's character, and it took forever to build the story to a captivating point. That said, the last half hour was solid when it came to action and overall plot. But I didn't care about a single character, and almost every character basically just fits their role for that plot, however strange their decisions are as a result. When everybody's favorite character coming out of that movie is a literal robot, there might be a problem.

That's being a little harsh on it, because there are definitely really good parts. I really enjoy the concept of the movie. Everything about why it exists is a great idea. I just think they didn't execute it very well.

I've honestly given up on getting deep characters out of movies as a whole, or even really deep plots. They're just too short for me to become attached to a character. So, yeah, while the characters weren't great, they weren't terrible.
Why did I say it was better than 7? Well, the end of 7 left a really bad taste in my mouth. Everything that happened on Starkiller base felt very rushed, like the movie refused to take it's time at all. The final lightsaber duel came off as forced, and had the ending we knew was coming, but never felt like it earned it's victory at all. Don't even get me started on the whole Luke Skywalker thing at the end. That felt tacked on, rushed and too drawn out, and the worst sequel bait I've seen in a long time.

Rouge One, on the other hand, had a very rushed opening. Up until they reach steampunk gangster, it's all a mush. After that, however, it gets much more satisfying. As forced as those two character's relations may have been, it led very, very well into what was A New Hope. It left me with a much more satisfied feel than 7 ever did. And that's why I liked it much more.

Marvel movies are just action porn, and they generally do a pretty good job of that.  I don't know why you guys hate on them because that's their entire purpose and they fulfill it.  I don't go in expecting some high brow character arc or amazing storyline, I expect to be entertained, and that entertainment is enhanced by there being an overarching story connecting them, regardless of how silly/genero it may be.  The fact that it's all comic dudes that you may or may not have had some extracurricular investment in is also pretty neat.

Is there anyone here who likes the films of Laika? The four films they've made are Coraline, ParaNorman, The Boxtrolls, and Kubo and the Two Strings. I'm a huge, huge fan of their work and style of stop-motion and have been revisiting a couple of their movies. My favorite is The Boxtrolls, because it's super quirky and the animation is spectacular and the story is really sweet and interesting. Has anyone else seen that one, or the others?

My favorite scene in The Boxtrolls is a really intricate dance sequence where all of the puppets are waltzing in perfect time with the score. You have the main kid characters trying to dance their way across the floor, while the film's villain (who for plot purposes is dressed in drag) is shoving people out of his way trying to catch up with them. It's a really exhilarating and astounding bit of animation, and I've watched that particular sequence soooo many times just trying to figure out how they achieved the camera angles and fluidity of it all. I really recommend checking it out if you're the sort of dork who thinks stop-motion animation is neat.

Heya, I'm glad you posted this recommendation! I have no idea how come I haven't heard of this studio before or watched any of their movies. There's a completely different "feel" to their work - the realistic textures and the quirky characters are the most memorable parts.
It almost seems as though nothing can stop the creators, there's no limitation to their work. Some scenes made me imagine how the staff would sit together at the planning stages, saying "this idea is crazy, we love it, let's do it." So much collaboration and time (!) invested into this, just... wow! Makes you appreciate every second of the movie.

I've watched all four of them during the last few months and would love to watch them again - just need to promote them to someone at home so that we can watch them all together. :)

Hmm, at first no specific scene or movie came to mind, but there's definitely improvement to be seen from one movie to the next, with Kubo and the Two Strings having spectacularly seamless animation. The leaf boat is an amazing prop and I'm still baffled by how Monkey's fur was made to look so detailed.
It would be difficult to pick a favourite scene, but all of Kubo's origami creations were mesmerising. I also liked the different settings in Coraline, the lighting played such a large role in conveying just the right mood - from warm and inviting to chilling and terrifying. If this movie wasn't animated I would've found it hard to fall asleep afterwards.

I'm sure it will be a completely different experience once I watch each movie a second time. ;)

It's an adventure movie. Batman is cool, then we realize he has character struggles and things fall apart, then plot develops and characters interact, Batman hits the bottom, has a revelation, and succeeds. It's a pretty typical family movie structure. They actually do quite a bit to make fun of superhero movies (unsurprisingly).

It was eh. The rest focusing on Rey ranged from decent to excellent. The parts focusing on the duo ranged from mediocre to insultingly bad. I enjoyed it, yes. It just wasn't really that high quality. It showed no real innovation and had no large twists, both of which the original trilogy was known for. It just felt really derivative, not unlike most Marvel movies.

Any interest in a movie night sometime?
