I saw 50 first dates last night, and thought it was hilarious. Rob Schnider played a great comic relief in that movie.

I also saw Elf over the holidays, and while it had a few funnies in it, overall I got bored watching it.

Dodgeball - I laughed until I cried. Much funnier than Anchorman

Garden State - I liked it, but I can say that it's not for everyone

Mourning
01-08-2005, 01:38 PM
I want to rent Dodgeball next week when it comes out on DVD here. I saw some trailer a while ago and it reminded me a bit of the sort of humour and lack of real story of the original Dumb and Dumber just absurdistic humour (which I am ashamed to admit really LOVED in Dumb and Dumber! ;)).

I loved Alexander, but others really hated it. It depends of what you expect of it. If you expect a Gladiator-look a like than DO NOT go see this movie. I loved Gladiator too, but Alexander is a story which comes much closer too reality. Personally I could have done with some of the monologues and some references to the gods could have been skipped to make the movie more accessible to the real large audiences. I also thought Stone could have done a better job with some of his flashbacks (but, he loves to use those a lot in almost all of his movies) and should have explained better how Alexander of Macedonia started his conquest in Anatolia instead of instantly moving towards the huge battle in the Arabian desert, but that is just personal preference.

I loved the fighting scenes in Alexander, certainly better than in Gladiator or the Lord of the Rings series. Offcourse, lots of computer rendered images here too, but I think they were better done than in those other movies I just mentioned. And it's not only the BIG battle scenes and overviews of the armies and cities ... it's also the smaller and medium scale battle-scene. My favorite combat scenes are when Alexander with his stallion face-off against an Indian War Elephant and archer, truly magnificiently filmed, but I really was impressed with most of the battle scenes in India.

Another movie I just saw and really liked was "Shattered Glass" about a highly regarded editor and reporter for The New Republic who is caught on not telling the truth in his reporting. Great movie about what journalism really comes down too or atleast should and what the consequences of such behavior could be.

I just saw "Warriors" again. Seen it plenty of times, but this movie ... Wow!

I will let someone else do the talking for me on this movie:

"If the conflict in Bosnia has become something of a forgotten war, it's not for the want of trying from the immensely powerful BBC film Warriors, the story of five young soldiers and their harrowing experiences in the region. Opening with an extended view of the five's home lives--all are on leave when called up to form part of the UN peacekeeping mission--Peter Kosminksy invites the viewer to experience the war at a strictly personal level. And while this leaves little scope for any general political overview of events (aside from the horror of war) this is a piece of drama and not a documentary. Once transported to Bosnia, the protagonists find that their role as peacekeepers leaves them largely sidelined and unable to intervene and save lives, often forced to stand by and watch mass slaughter. Not since M*A*S*H have the absurdities of "the rules of engagement" been so eloquently examined. It is the darkening spiral that the five are sent on by these events and the relationships they form throughout them that forms the crux of the film, never demonstrated more clearly than by the return to the friends and families who see them as heroes. Bloody and sickening in parts, Warriors is given extra poignancy by the fact that it is based on the real-life testimony of British soldiers. A million miles away from the Rambos of this world this is the war film coming of age. --Phil Udell
Synopsis
A drama based on the events of the British in Bosnia, told through the eyes of a group of young soldiers from the Cheshire Regiment."

Hands down one of the top-5 war movies ever. Btw it was first released as a short series on the BBC. The movie is edited from the series as far as I can tell, I have seen them both.

Mourning :cool:

It's a mildly humorous movie produced by MTV that's pretending to be some low-budget, Indie film. And it seems to be successfully parading as that. It's decent, but not worth the hype or attention it's getting (mostly because of the MTV hype machine).

I'm so pissed. I bought this in Chinatown and there's no Eng. subs on my DVD :\ I usually don't bother to check. I'm gonna watch it anyway as the plot sounded pretty thin from what I've read.

EDIT -
Last movie watched: The 36 Deadly Styles last night. Starring Hwang Jang Li, Jack Long and Mark Long among others... Directed by Jospeh Kuo. Independent kung-fu flick from the late 70s or early 80s (too lazy to look it up right now). Kuo typically directed movies that were better budgeted, had better martial arts, were better looking and had better plots than the movies that most small studios were churning out in Hong Kong and Taiwan during that period of time. Other favs of mine by Kuo are the 'Mystery of Chessboxing' and '18 Bronzemen'.

Oh, Man. I just watched The Village last night. It's not a bad movie by any means, but the ending is so...so....bad twilight zone. I really felt like I'd been hoodwinked. And I think I'm in love with Ron Howard's daughter. If it wasn't for her, the movie would have beeen a major wash.

And as for remakes. I am so against them. And why do they try and remake classics? What's the point? It's just like when they remake songs. Unless you can put a truly original, claver twist on the thing, learn to create something new on your own.

Oh, yeah. I watched Saw, too. Brr.....I actually think it was a pretty riveting movie, if not a bit precocious (sp) in it's cleverness. I really hope they make some kind of sequel. It really did have strong shades of Seven to it.

I will say this about The Village... EXCELLENT trailers.... For whatever that is worth. Too bad the trailers really paint the wrong picture of the movie.

I agree tho... it's not a bad movie but it is VERY Scooby Doo (cartoon) meets Twilight Zone. And not good Twilight Zone.

I love M. Night's films.

Signs was about losing ones faith, it was never about aliens.

The Village was about you cannot run away from human nature, it finds you.

If you've never seen a film by Shamalon I could see how you would feel cheated, but if you've seen them before you had to know there was a deep story underlining the entire film.

Now back on topic.

I just watched Cellular. It was much better than I anticipated it to be. However I enjoyed the bonus feature on there which was a documentary called "Code of Silence" which was about the corruption in the Rampart squad of the L.A.P.D.

If you've ever seen the Shield on FX this will all be very familiar right down to the calling cards.

Ten years ago, some of the worst atrocities in the history of mankind took place in the country of Rwanda; and in an era of high-speed communication and round-the-clock news, the events went almost unnoticed by the rest of the world. In only three months, almost 1 million people were brutally murdered. In the face of these unspeakable actions, inspired by his love for his family, an ordinary man summons extraordinary courage to save the lives of over a thousand helpless refugees by granting them shelter in the hotel he manages.

I just watched Cellular. It was much better than I anticipated it to be.



I enjoyed that movie also. During the time I was watching the movie, I had a good time, as soon as it was over I forgot all about the movie. One of those type movies.


I just saw, "In Good Company" Very good movie. Topher Grace the guy who is in "that 70's show" is an excellent actor. he is a star in the making if he gets the right roles over the next two years.

Million Dollar Baby - The Boxing movie directed by Clint Eastwood he also stars in it along with Morgan Freeman and Hilary Swank. Very Good Movie.
Excellent movie, but very very sad. Any movie with Clint Eastwood and Morgan Freeman (the world's greatest actor) has got to be pretty good. Hillary Swank was awesome in it as well.

Do you think the movie would be as popular if the 'twist' wasn't hidden from the public in the trailers and responisble reviews?

I'm not asking if it would be less of a movie (I haven't seen it but I unfortunately heard the 'twist')... I'm just asking if the public would've still made a point to see it and give it a chance?

Saw the trailer ... looks very "promising" if I may use the word. Cheadle is a great actor btw, very underrated, loved him in "Traffic" also.

I wonder how they will portray the Belgian UN troops, I think 10 or 11 were murdered in one ambush after which they decided to leave the country. For tBelgium, Rwanda is what probably Somalia is for the US and Srebrenica is for my country, a trauma. Still "minor" things compared to the whidescale slaughter that took place though.

Unforunately, I knew of the "twist" before I saw it. I don't think the movie would be as popular if more people knew before hand. Even knowing, I still enjoyed the movie much more than I thought I would. I'm usually a happy ending movie type of guy, but sometimes movies that make me cry are the ones I remember the most.

Last movie I seen was Something the Lord Made


Something the Lord Made recounts the relationship between Dr. Alfred Blalock (Alan Rickman) and Vivian Thomas (Mos Def). It begins in 1930s Nashville when imperious cardiac surgeon Blalock hires Thomas, an African American carpenter, as his janitor. When the latter reveals a passion for medicine and facility with surgical instruments, Blalock promotes him to lab tech. Thomas isn't given a raise, works side jobs to make ends meet, and is expected to be grateful. Along the way, he follows Blalock from Vanderbilt to Johns Hopkins, where they save thousands of lives through their pioneering work, but will Thomas ever get any credit? The film provides a satisfying answer to that question. Joseph Sargent (A Lesson Before Dying) directs with subtlety and intelligence, while Rickman and Mos Def are in top form, often underplaying where most actors would do otherwise. Something the Lord Made won the 2004 Emmy for outstanding made-for-TV movie. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

We don't get HBO in canada so I had to wait till the DVD was out to see it. Well worth the wait.

I also seen "Ray" the other day. Based on the life of Ray Charles, im sure you all know the story now since its been talked about on every single tv program. I wasn't as impressed with the movie as others have been. It was quite boring to be honest, I've seen this story a million times, Drugs, cheat on the wife, success and then at the end they live happily ever after.... Thats his life but i've seen it so many times it was unoriginal. The only highlights of the movie for me was the music and Foxx's performance which was also over hyped.

I've seen all the best actor nominee movies now and theres no doubt I would give it too Don Cheadle for Hotel Rwanda. Unfortunetly because Ray Charles recently passed away and the hype the movie is getting Foxx already has his name written on the trophy.

I just finished watching The Machinist. Excellent movie, everything about it was great. Its a very dark/creepy movie though, reminds me a lot of Memento but more intense. Its hard to explain the story and I don't want to give away too much so heres yahoo's summary:


Trevor Reznik (Bale) is wasting away. He hasn't slept in a year, which has led to a shocking deterioration of his physical and mental health. His only solace comes from his call-girl girlfriend (Leigh) when his world becomes a living nightmare as cryptic notes turn up in his apartment and he has visions of a co-worker nobody else can see. Determined to find answers, he embarks on a journey of self-awareness, but the more he learns, the less he wants to know.

Just finished watching Shaun of the Dead (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0365748/). Hilarious movie, I highly recommend it.

Wasn't that great? I love clever humor. I wish I could abduct random groups of theatregoers who are in line to see the latest Ben Stiller moronfest (Ben Stiller; the Steve Guttenberg of our generation-no talent and is constantly putting out movies) and show them how smart comedy is done. I'm not even a fan of the Dawn of the Dead movies and I still found Shaun some really witty viewing.


I just finished watching The Machinist. Excellent movie, everything about it was great. Its a very dark/creepy movie though, reminds me a lot of Memento but more intense. Its hard to explain the story ...

I really want to see that. I knew about it coming to theatres, but lost track of it's release and have no idea when it's coming to video. I'm not a big Bale fan, but his intensity really lends itself to certain roles and that looks like one of them. I'm REALLY hyped to see him as Batman. I suspect it will be a case of dead on perfect casting.


As for recent viewing, I just got around to watching I, Robot. Entertaining, but not great. There was a some distracting stupidity in it. ( What's the deal with the kid who stops him on the street? Obviously rationale for him even being in the movie is on the cutting room floor. It made no sense. And why were the Robots still active at the end? How stupid was it in the warehouse full of thousands of robots for Will to track a single robot down using the technique that he used?)


Don't get me wrong, it WAS a fun movie to watch and had a great look, but when I see glaring plot holes, it distracts me and reminds me that I'm watching a movie, rather than allowing me to get lost in the film.

Oh yeah, I also watched the Color Purple on cable yesterday. What a wonderful, wonderful movie. Touching without being smaltzy.

Disc 2 has the deleted scene that explains Buddy's return to the team

The movie is now 16:9 and looks very good on this DVD compared to the original. Colors and lighting are richer.
I'm not sure if 16:9 is OAR or not... I bet not but I'm not sure. Better than the pan and scan or windowed version (on widescreen tvs) of the old disc.

Yes. I'd seen it on video tape already. Had Ray Craft not blown a layup Bobby Plump's shot would've been unneccessary. If I recall correctly Milan had the ball and a 2 point lead with time running down. Craft's blown layup would've given them a 4 point lead.

But Craft did miss it, Muncie did get the rebound and score... and the rest is Indiana basketball history.

It's not really like Milan was just hanging close hoping for a last second shot. If anything, Muncie was the team trying to hang close tho Milan did take some air out of the ball.

Interesting seeing the game and the way it was played back then. Officials getting respect. Ball back in play soon after a whistle (or FT's shot without delay).

The pace of the game was actually QUICKER. :eek:

That movie IMHO hasn't stood the test of time very well. I remembered it as being a better movie.

I have zero desire to see that movie and I LOVE animation. Judging by the commercial,s where you get to put your best foot forward, it looks REALL unimaginative. What cliche, unfunny jokes.

Um, it didn't really happen. Nor was it based on a true story. The Coen Brothers were pulling everyone's leg with that.

"Hotel Rwanda"

A really good movie. Even though you might not expect it to be, it was very entertaining. I would put it right behind "Million Dollar Baby" and ahead of "Sideways" and "Aviator"

"Hotel Rwanda"

A really good movie. Even though you might not expect it to be, it was very entertaining. I would put it right behind "Million Dollar Baby" and ahead of "Sideways" and "Aviator"

"Sideways" was far and away last year's best film released by a major studio. While I don't put much stock in the Oscars, it's always amusing to me that the films that win best screenplay—original or adapted—usually don't win best picture. It all starts with the script. I liked "Hotel Rwanda" a lot, although I think the material overwhelmed the director's personal vision, or perhaps he didn't really have one. Either way, it was incredibly enlightening. "Million Dollar Baby" to me was mediocre at best. "Aviator" had its moments and for a nearly 3-hour film was solid throughout. Not great, but solid.

Of those 4 movies I would rate them this way

1. Million Dollar Baby
2. Hotel Rwanda
3. Sideways
4. Aviator


But all 4 were excellent. Although if I had all 4 DVD's sitting right here in front of me and I had to watch one and only one right now I would watch "Sideways" It is not a comedy really, but there were 2 or 3 scenes towards the end that were hilarious just surprisingly funny.

Ray.

I thought Jamie Foxx did very well and carried the movie. I thought the movie itself was not well done. Cinematography was nothing special (actually it was borderline bad). Pacing was awkward. Story telling was weak. Some scenes dragged on while other scenes were much too short.

If the acting hadn't been excellent in the lead role this movie would've fallen flat IMHO. IOW, Jamie Foxx had to be excellent. 'Good' would not have been enough to prop up the rest of the movie.

....Or maybe I expected too much going in.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the movie but it isn't one that I care to see again necessarily.

The other night we rented Flight of the Phoenix and it sucked like 40 hoover vacuums wired up in series.

Then my Daughter forced us to rent the Spongebob Squarepants Movie. There's another hour and a half I'll never get back.

Thank goodness I rented the Incredibles before that or I'd be having a pretty bad run.

Borderline bad? This is the same guy who shot The Pianist. The cinematography was the only thing that kept me watching the screen at times. Not that I thought it was exceptionally shot, but it certainly wasn't borderline bad.

As I said... I might've expected too much. You're right, using 'bad' (even with 'borderline') was too harsh. I should've just stuck with saying the cinematography was nothing special.

I was just a bit letdown.

WOW! You REALLY missed something, seriously! "Der Untergang" as it's called in german is a really, really good movie if only to hear and see Hitler in a movie actually speaking german and not continuously screaming like a maniac (though he does do that several times during the movie which is both humorous aswell as tragic), actually like a real character. Great job welldone on that movie, which I definitely will buy on DVD ASAP.

Another GREAT warmovie from out of the states is also German and called "Stalingrad" about the battle for .... DUH! Really good movie too though ;).

The UK with "Warriors" is also a truly brilliant wardrama with the story beying centered on a group of english soldiers that get send to Bosnia for the UNPROFOR-mission there at the beginning of the 1990's and the problems and tragedies they face in theire mission, particularly the ENORMOUS frustration with the RUE's (Rules Of Engagement). Brilliant piece!

I was blown away by Bruno Ganz' portrait of Hitler. He humanized him in a way I've never seen before. Here's an excerpt from a review that sums up the movie pretty well:

In the end, it doesn't take much to see evil coming when it's wearing horns and carrying a pitchfork. "Downfall" reminds us that the challenge of citizenship means recognizing evil when leaders are smiling, playing with their dogs and being photographed with children.

Okay, I bought some DVDs from Amazon and just got around to watching some of them. Other than taking a big chunk of time out to watch part of my new 21 Jump Street collection (I know, I know...:blush::crazy: ) I just re-watched Electra Glide in Blue, which I haven't seen in a long, long time. A tad nihilistic, to say the least. I fell in love with this movie and the power of Robert Blake all over again. What was disappointing was the director's commentary. Some of the stuff, that in the past I thought were possibly calculated directoral decisions, oftentimes were just the result of luck or an actor ad-libbing something or a smart cameraman.

The director said he likened this movie to a western, but looking at it now, I dare say, it falls distinctly within the realm of a film noir type movie. If you guys get a chance, you should check it out. Read a description of the movie at Amazon.com. Really, really, good movie. (Notice I didn't say great.)
