my sister made me watch The Break-up with her and a group of our friends cuz 60% of the people were to scared to watch The Omen....
btw if anybody has seen The Omen i would like some reviews...

and o yeah the break-up was really really ****ty


Havent seen it yet but I heard from a friend that it was the scariest movie he has ever seen. I would tend to believe him.

Last movie I saw was Part of Cheaper by the Dozen and Big Daddy (Both on TV)

If got to finish Capote. I thought it was a great movie, and I say this as someone who generally dislikes bio-picks.. The way it inter-plays with In Cold Blood is brilliant. When you read the book you can see so much sub text as to Capote's role in the trial and ability to get into people's personal lives even though Capote never metions his interactions. It is usually "an author"; such a strange detatchment. The project did a great job of pulling out this story from the novel.

The performance was amazing. I don't know if I have ever seen such a range of emotion/motives so subtly displayed. It might have over shadowed how good the film really was.

I really liked Capote too when I saw it a few months ago. I didn't and still haven't read the book that Capote wrote about the two murderers. I thought the beginning was very, very good, you immediately get dragged into the story and you feel almost like a small boy reading a detective book, that sort of feeling. I must say that I thought the last 15-20 minutes were really good too, but the movie had a part somewhere in the middle that was a little less ... "intense" to me which I thought was a pitty. It picked up in the last part of the movie though.

Just watched the remake of "The Omen" and I really liked it. This is a good remake. It's very much the same as the old version, but it's not bothering or something. I thought the kid was a little bit more terrifying in the original, but even in this version the kid was played pretty well and has the right face and facial expression for this role, so a good pick.

SPOILER ALERT:





I do think it's very strange that dad gets shot by police in Urban Warfare/SWAT uniforms when the only thing he had done so far was ... driving WAY too hard and smashing through HIS front gate. I don't know, but doesn't seem to me the Police would send in a SWAT-team for that, but maybe I am wrong.

Mourning :cool:

The Omen.

I Torrented a copy and watched it at home. It was under an hour long so I dont know if I got a bad copy but it seemed like a whole movie.

It was not as scary as I thought it would be. Kind of confusing and a little annoying. Maybe I just dont scare easily anymore.

If the Asbury University you're talking about is DePauw, then the answer is no........

I finally watched Serenity. I know you Firefly fans found some fault with it, but overall, I found it pretty entertaining. The focus was obviously on the captian, so most of the characters got short changed, for someone like me, who only saw the show once.

Certain character's death might have meant more to me if he have more screen time. For someone who didn't follow the series, it didn't have one whit of the impact someone who folowed the series would have, I'm sure.

I really, really hope the continue the film series. Mal is worthy of more big screen time.

Crash--There were things I like but over all a bit contrived.

Don Cheadle is always good and if it would have just been simple melodrama I could have forgiven the impossible coincidences they asked you to swallow. What completely brought the movie down for me were those sequences (accompanied by overly sentimental music) where they prompt you to consider the profound exercise in sociology these characters intertwining lives supposedly represent. And the sense in every frame that the filmakers believe they are giving a hard, focused look at the unvarnished truth about race relations in America just by having characters who aren't so simply shaded as they first appear. Then having them give bigoted speeches which they are forced to confront in a very, as you say, contrived array of circumstances . Cue the slow-mo shots of snow falling with piano music.
Brokeback, Good Night and Good Luck and Capote were all way, way better, IMO. Haven't seen Munich yet.

As far as Crash goes I liked the Cheadle storyline and love Cheadle. Matt Dillion I always enjoy.

Beyond that The movie would have been a braver film 15 years ago. For dealing with such a hot topic it ruffled surprisingly few feathers. I suspect that is because "we are all racist" is a safe statement.

Aside from the contrived events as a PT Anderson fan I looked down on the films efforts to be like Magnolia. The meladrama rang false for me as well.

I'd call it a good movie with flaws but certainly not great or profound.

Vertigo. First time seeing it - was a good movie, but I didn't enjoy it as much other Hitchcock films I'd seen. Just rang hollow for me, I guess, dunno why.

The Chinese Connection. I love cheesy kung fu movies. This one answered my long-standing question: how you tell the difference between a Chinese person and a Japanese person? The answer? Their nipples, apparently.

Scary Movie 4. Not quite as good as the last one, but I enjoyed it.

Pirates of the Really Long Movie Title

Don't know really what to say. My bet is I feel a lot like most people felt after Matrix Reloaded. Everything is BIGGER but not necessarily better. As I read one reviewer say, the final word on this movie will depend on the next, cause this is all setup.

I'd probably be a lot more positive, but there are a couple of pretty drastic changes to characters, changes that I really didn't care for. One is understandable, one, not so much. It makes sense, I guess, but I'm not feeling it. There's a big move made by somebody at the end, that pretty much puts what happens next on false pretenses. I'm just too much of an idealist, so at least I can count on good ol' Will Turner in that regard, even if people think he's boring.

Anyway, if you liked the first, by all means, go see it, but don't expect the moon and the stars. It's fun, but it's darker, and for those with children, it earns the PG-13 in spades. There were lots of youngin's there that weren't enjoying themselves.

Also, make sure you go somewhere with great sound. I went to my normal theater, not the one with bad sound that I've complained about, and I still had problems understanding people, Davy Jones and the Voodoo lady in particular. Alot of that I believe has to do with their lisp and accent, respectively, though.

Wow. Anything I say about this film won't do it justice. I absoloutly loved it. Eugene Jareki did a great job showing how Dwight Eisenhower's warnings of the military industrial complex have come to pass today. Using a interviews from John McCain, Richard Perle, and William Crystal, amongst others he shows the slippery slope we are on right now. He does a great job of showing an unbiased perspective and really tells the story of our current foriegn policy well.

I highly reccomend this film to anyone who hasn't seen it.

"El Lobo", a Spanish movie that plays in the middle of the '70's when Franco was still in power and held the country in a dictatorship.

It's about the first real infiltrator in the ETA (the Basque, terrorist, separation movement) and shows the different agenda's of all sides (Basque terrorists, Basques in ETA who wanted ETA to become a political party and ban the violence, The Spanish security services, citizens both Spanish and Basques caught in the middle).

Pretty good and interesting movie. Good political thriller. Strongly based on historical happennings.

I watched that as well and was surprised at how enjoyable it was. Although, I watched in three segments which made the length more bearable. Basically I watched the ship to island part, then the whole island sequence, and then the return to New York. The casting was really good and Jack Black didn't do the scenery chewing he usually does. It was like an ode to B movies with a wink to the audience, although I can't imagine how loud it must have been at the theatres.

It was an advanced screening. I don't know how much of a wuss your 7 year-old is, but my 3 year-old held up just fine. ;)

followed closely by Robin Williams.

BP, I'd have to disagree. Williams has been great in a drama/comedy like Good Morning Vietnam, the World According to Garp, Patch Adams, or Dead Poets.

And I'll admit I enjoyed Mrs. Doubtfire, Best of Times, and Jumanji.

Actually the guy is pretty talented when you consider his roles in Good Will Hunting, Awakenings, and Jakob the Liar. Mark me down as a Williams fan for his acting and comedy routines.

Jakob the Liar.

Not to go all foreign-film snobby, but this rendition of this film was horrible when compared to the original.

I could've really cared less if Williams was had a personal brick wall built around him, with the movie ending immediately thereafter.

Happy, Texas. Two straight men have to pretend to be gay, with hilarious consequences! Ah ha ha...ha...ha ha...ha... Solidifies my theory that any movie starring Steve Zahn is going to be terrible.

Duck Soup. Yeah, I'd actually never seen this before. Interesting to see the famous sketches tied together in a whole story. Groucho is still the king of one-liners.

Zatoichi (2003). It drags a bit in the middle, and the CGI is distractingly obvious, but overall a very enjoyable movie. Has a few neat musical sequences, including a big dance number at the end - don't see many of those in samurai movies.

You know, I started to agree, basically, with bulletproof. It's easy for me to dismiss Robin because I find him personally so damn annoying and he can have a tendance to be really cloying and too over the top. I just tried to be objective about the way I am about Tom Cruise. Both guys I don't care for off screen, but can seperate the off screen guy from the on screen guy.

With Williams, in too many of his dramas he throws too much at you: he's too earnest, his brow is overly furrowed. He has a HARD time with retraint. His comedy? Uh....

First of all, I won't watch a comedy with him in it if I can help it, but then again, he's been in some dramas where I thought he was pretty great. Matter of fact, I think he was picture perfect in the Fisher King and Moscow on the Hudson and Good Will Hunting and Garp and.....

It's just that it's easy to overlook some of the real gems of his, because he's just too, too, much in stuff like Dead Poets, Doubtfire, Patch, Hook (horrible casting), Dreams May Come...the list goes on and on and on.

I try to avoid his stuff when I can, but I thnk he has the potential to be amazing, but he just missed the mark more often than not.

I'll go with my previous post about Martin Lawrence and nod in agreement about Will Farrell, but I'm a little hestitant about Robin Williams. I've never actively gone to a movie starring him other than Awakenings and King, so I've kinda watched a lot of his stuff by accident (on TV, nothing else on, wife wanted to see it, etc.)


I've seen him do some great stuff, unlike Ferrell and Lawrence, so I can't lump him in that group.

Mourning
07-19-2006, 03:14 PM
I don't like Robin Williams very much either, but he does have some good roles. Particularly "Good Will Hunting" comes to mind. "Garp" is decent too. And I'm sure there are someothers too.

Basically, like Skaut just wrote and with which I aggree, I don't like the man's comedies (which he does wayyyyy too much), but I like SOME of his more serious roles.

We saw Pirates today, and I still haven't seen the first one, but I wanted to scream at the screen, please quiet down and slow down, let me catch my breath. I felt like I had been on a very uncomfortable roller coaster for 2.5 hours.

Maybe I'm getting old, and yes I know it is an action movie, but whatever happened to the art of making an action movie. Now it seems like it is action all the time and the plot and character development is nonexistant. Whatever happened to building a movie to a climax, getting to know the characters, whatever happened to a little bit of subtleness. I feel like I've been hit over the head with a hammer all afternoon. OK, yes have some action scenes, but vary the tempo of it, this movie just seemed like full speed ahead to the point where the last 60 minutes I was thinking more about the Pacers acquiring Al than what I was watching.

Martin Lawrence is the singularly most unfunny guy in Hollywood, yet he keeps getting work. Maybe he and Chris "my fifteen minutes of fame are over, but maybe I can keep resetting the clock" Tucker and he can pull a Themla and Louise and do us all a favor.

Iíve been a Martin fan since the days of House Party and Do The Right Thing, and I can absolutely see how someone could find him completely unfunny. I donít rush out to the theater to see his movies, but I enjoy them because they tend to be either pretty good (Life, Talking Dirty After Dark, Blue Streak) or so awesomely bad that I end up laughing at how pitiful they are (Black Knight, Nothing to Lose, National Security). So I either end up with intentional or unintentional comedy, both of which I enjoy.

The Devil Wears Prada

Don't be scared away by the "chick flick" stink coming from the ads. This is actually a very entertaining movie.
Streep is bad a**, she really carries the film. My wife read the book and was one who thought they took some of the edge off and gave it a moral that she didn't see in the book. I thought it was pretty strong.


Superman Returns - stuffs bits in that should have waited for a 2nd film and that makes it drag at times, but that freaking airplane rescue is one of the greatest action scenes in the last 20 years. It's Fellowship Troll fight, Ronin car chase good.

A Scanner Darkly - Good but not great. If you enjoyed Waking Life, Linklater's other rotoscope/painted film movie then you are going to like this, another Philip K Dick story turned into a film. I think it was the most like Dick's work that I've read, which isn't totally a good thing. For his other famous stories the filmmakers actually improved and expanded things into a smooth narrative instead of a curious but somewhat aimless and upbruptly ending story (Total Recall, Blade Runner, Screamers, Minority Report being the best film versions of his stuff)

This is a lot more like reading Dick's work, it gets to you but also sort of dumps you off in the middle of nowhere and drives off. :)

Sonatine. A movie with a lot of gangsters in it, but it's not a gangster movie. It's interesting.

Pirates of the Carribean: The Next One. More of the same, pretty much, but I enjoyed it, if only to watch the special effects. Davy Jones' crew was quite cool.

Musa: The Warrior

http://www.blockbuster.com/catalog/DisplayMoreMovieProductDetails.action?movieID=1176 62&channel=Movies&subChannel=sub#Cast


Touted as the most expensive Korean film ever produced, Musa is a sweeping real-life epic about an official envoy from Koryo (ancient Korea) struggling to stay alive in war-torn China. The film is set in 1375 when the Yuan dynasty collapses after a 100-year reign against the insurgent Ming. As the Ming dynasty solidifies power pushing the remaining Yuan armies to the north and west, Koryo sends a delegation of diplomats to shore up their strained relations with the new government. Upon arrival the lead diplomat is thrown in jail and the rest are exiled to the dusty hinterland for spying. There, the party is ambushed by Yuan soldiers. The survivors are led by General Choi Jung and a bodyguard slave of another fallen general, Yeo-sol. After facing all sorts of adversities, the group make it to a remote country inn where they learn that the beautiful Ming princess Furong (played by Zhang Ziyi of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon fame) has been kidnapped. When Yeo-sol gets abducted by the same band of Yuan thugs, Choi Jung resolves to free them both. Fleeing from the same Yuan army, the Koryo warriors with Furong in tow learn that the Yuan has burned all ferryboats in the Yellow River valley. When they happen upon a group of Ming refugees, Furong promises them supplies and safe passage home if they escort the refugees to the Mud Castle upriver. The castle, however, proves to be in ruins and the Yuan are closing in.

Excellent movie.

Good story line, top notch acting through out & the fight scenes are nothing short of amazing.

For those that would like a taste of what international cinema is offering I highly reccommend Musa: The Warrior .

Finally saw War of the Worlds, Tom Cruise version, because it was on HBO and nothing else was on. I must say, the low budget version that was on Sci Fi Channel a couple of weeks ago was better. The effects were good, but the ending just reeked. I knew it ended bad going in, but that was just stupid! My wife and I both turned to each other and said, "I'm sure glad we didn't pay for that." Of course, we did pay with those precious moments of our lives.

It was literally disturbing to see him that thin. As shocking as seeing DeNiro bulked up at the end of Raging Bull.


I missed the first 20 minutes or so, :-o 20 minutes!!! Why bother, and doubly so in this case. The movie is straight forward once you get the angle, but without the initial setup of the disguises for example I have no idea what a person would think was going on.

Grilled - Worth a look as a DVD flick.

Find Me Guilty - Vin Diesel actually does some acting in this movie. It was about 2 hours...and if you're into the trial movies...worth a look

Grandma's Boy - a few laughs here and there...but nothing over the top.

Legend of Zorro - I used to be a Zorro the TV show when I was a child...but I guess I grew out of it. It just felt stupid for him to fight with a sword when the enemies had guns...but decided to have a swordfight??

Dodgeball - A bit old, but finally managed to see it. worth watching if you like Vince Vaughn or Ben Stiller movies.

Final Destination 3 - if you loved the first two...you'll manage to finish watching this one...but I was a bit disappointed this time around.

The Benchwarmers - A Rob Schneider movie that has a moral? It works...worth a look....even if you arent a fan of R.S.

You Got Served - The dance battles were the only reason i watched it. and if you're fan of hip-hop...check it..if not...don't waste your time.

The Forgotten - A bit of twists here and there to keep you guessing...it does fall a bit short of being something memorable. If you like suspense/thriller...its worth a look.

The Proposition - Its a good cowboy flick.

V for Vendetta - Have to say it was the best of the bunch. if you haven't seen it yet, check it out.

"Miami Vice"

Good. If you liked "Collateral" or "Heat", then you will like this one. Farell is not one of my favorite actors, but he did a decent job. Foxx is excellent, as he is in most of his stuff.

This is not your father's "Miami Vice". This movie is dark. It is dirty. The way it should/would have been in reality.

This is the type of movie that should be seen in a theater setting. Period. I wish the soundtrack would have used some songs from the original series, but I did like the Audioslave tracks.

I'll buy it on DVD, to go right along with my copies of "Heat" and "Collateral".

The women who played truty (I think she starred in Selena?) was hot as hell.

I loved all of the gun scenes, esp. the ones at the end. All of those were bad ***.


I was kind of mad they didnt have a introduction or anything that tied the TV show to the movie, and even madder the only time we heard the them song was when they played the theme song in the closing credits.

THE MATADOR - funny film... pierce brosnan, greg kinnear, hope davis are great

WHITECOATS - i watched this solely on the fact that dave foley was in it on a whim. even if you're a dave foley fan, please stay away from this film. please, just stop. the film so desperately wants to be scrubs but fails so miserably. i watched the bonus features and there was an interview with Dan Aykroyd (who was in the film) and said first that he got the script and loved it... you could literally watch him choke those words out... to be followed by but I love Dave Thomas (who wrote the film... he's of SC TV fame) and would do anything if he asked (infinitely more probable).

THE YES MEN - interesting documentary which follows some prankster activists pose as WTO operatives (first by creating a satirical WTO website, then after being invited to speak at conferences and on television.) They document three events in which they are invited to speak in belief that they're organization is linked to the WTO... one involves efficiency business suit with a massive inflatable phallus... funny and interesting and fairly dark look at global free trade...

CACHE - a french thriller, reminded me of Hitchcock.

KISS KISS BANG BANG - robert downey jr at his overly paranoid and spazzy best, val kilmer is quite enjoyable too. definitely dark and off the wall.

JESUS IS MAGIC - a bizarrely compiled feature film, in which the star is Sarah Silverman's hilarious comedy. the standup sections are hilarious but the standup is broken up by odd song & dance numbers. if you enjoy sarah silverman's comedy, or if you enjoy edgy comedy, this is worth a look...

as i only recently graduated from college, i don't go to many films in theatres, but the last one i went to was THANK YOU FOR SMOKING and i highly recommend it. hilarious.

That's not going to be good for your karma."

Pretty good for a horror movie. It avoids a lot of the lame qualities of mainstream horror films, which I appreciated. Usually horror films make you roll your eyes a lot, but this one I think only did that once to me. I may see it again sometimes (probably on DVD).

Shadow of a Doubt. An earlier Hitchcock movie - it doesn't have the greatest plot, but the acting (especially Joseph Cotten's Uncle Charlie) is very strong.

A Scanner Darkly. The most faithful - if not the best - adaption of one of Dick's stories that I've seen. I'm usually not a bit fan of drug movies, but the characters - Downey's especially - and the visuals kept me in thrall.

As a small aside: the Indie Cinema - or whatever it's called - in the Fashion Mall is pretty cool.

Gimme Shelter (1970). Documentary about the Rolling Stones' concert at the Altamont Speedway where an 18 year-old kid charging the stage with a handgun was stabbed to death by a member of Hell's Angels - who were hired as security that day! The killing is caught on film. It's billed as the event that brought an end to the '60s and the flower power movement. I've seen it before, but it's a great repeat movie.

My favorite part is when they're in the recording studio and we see the Stones listening to the playback of "Wild Horses." Keith Richards is kicked back on the sofa with his feet up on the recording console, eyes closed and mouthing the words to it, smiling every once and awhile in a complete state of bliss. The Stones are at the height of their creative powers and you can only imagine the high of listening to yourself on tape knowing you've just recorded another great song.

It's a halucination. In fact, the original ending makes it clear. You see, this movie actually came out LAST summer in the UK, and it had a different ending. I've seen it on the net, and I like it better, actually. Everything's the same as what we see, except that after she sees the "ghost", she sees her daughter blowing out the candles again, only this time the moment lasts a little longer, and she thinks she's sitting right there with her. A beat later and the moment's over, and it turns out she never got out; she's still in the cave, and you can hear the crawlers closing in on her.

she was already having issues and stuff since her daughter and husband died and seeing the thing that her Husband gave Juno pushed her over the edge... she apparently killed about 5 crawlers and there were 5 girls with her... the thing is that the crawlers might have been an entire halcuination to justify her killing of her friends... then she dies in the cave while she goes crazy

Legend of Zorro

Oh god it was awful. I mildly enjoyed the first one, but this? You'd think Disney would have consulted a history book before greenlighting a movie where the plot centers on California's admission to the Union, nitroglycerine, a map of all 48 states, and the Confederate army?!? I think Wild Wild West was more believable.

Even throwing out the plot, the action was poor and the special effects were a joke. The "fire" in the barn was Ed Wood-worthy.

I can't believe Martin Campbell actually directed this. He must have lost his freakin' mind. Doesn't bode well for Casino Royale.

None of that sounds like it would be Campbells' fault. Plot is the writers fault, special effects, well, that's obvious and the action, well...

I couldn't watch more than 10 minutes of Legend. I give about every movie a chance, but I could see what happened with Legend.

I suspect that Legend was made by allowing a ton of idiot studio execs to attach a ton of yellow sticky notes on "what this movie needs" and the studio forced Campbell into honoring their wishes, turnig the script into a horror of inconsistancies and bad moviemaking. I bet the original script got twisted seven ways till Sunday with ridiculous changes.

(I've always suspected the same thing happened with that horrible, horrible, Wild, Wild West movie.)

BTW, saw Collateral yesterday. Now that is a smart, intuitive movie. Really, really liked it.

Oh, I know it probably went down like that, but I was shocked at the end when I found out Campbell actually directed it. They had one of those Starz credit talkovers, and the actors were saying they came back because he did. I know he didn't have much to work with, but, unless they gave him the stunt coordinator from Jackass, I'd at least expect decent action scenes from the guy. I mean, it's Zorro, for god's sake, give me at least one good sword fight.

Huffman is incredible in the role. Hope you like insane levels of nudity and strong sexual content (much of it male) if you decide to watch it. Good but not great script, but Huffman really takes it to the limit with her effort.



Pirates 2 - sloppy scripting, drug out too much, but you still get lots of nice character moments to enjoy.


Sky High - formula family film, but pretty fun basically.


Monster House 3D - best animated film of the year. I wish Cars had been this tight. The 3D just kicks it up a notch.

********
American Psycho - Being familiar with this film I knew that Bale was the perfect fit for Batman. His AP character IS the dark version of Wayne/Batman - rich snob by day, crazed *** kicking killer by night if you will. Wayne is not superficial like AP and obviously Batman is on the side of good, but the total character range is very similar IMO.


Gimmie Shelter - yep, always loved that film. Huge Stones fan which helps, just a crazy intense film. That one psycho biker is just starting down Mick at one point in a very disturbing way. Complete loss of innocence with that moment/concert.

Man, that's exactly how I reviewed Scanner Darkly. I'm actually not a big fan of Dick's writing at times, he skimps at times where the film versions actually flesh characters and situations out better and increase the mind strain (like with Total Recall), but at the same time his voice is interesting and Linklater nailed it.

God bless Mark Cuban and his Landmark chain. That's the nicest mid-sized screen theater(s) in town. Enough to make me want more mainstream stuff to show up there.

After all those years of Castleton and Keystone Arts...run by great people but the theaters were just not in good shape. There was something fun about the struggle, but its also nice to view a great film in a quality environment.
