Thread: What movie did you last watch?

    You guys really liked Skyfall? I thought it was HORRIBLE! Worst James Bond movie since.. well there are alot of James Bond movies so, a while.

    Good things about the film. The opening credits were amazing. I mean seriously, freaking awesome.

    The rest of the movie... not so much. Whatever thin plot there was completely disappeared halfway through the movie. There were no cool gadgets, none of the actions of the villain made any sense at all, as in what he had planned out. The ending of the film was completely ridiculous. I was shocked at how bad it was as I was expecting a really good movie. I give it 2/10 (just for the opening credits which get a 10/10.)

    Hmm...I loved Skyfall. It might be one of my 4 or 5 favorite Bond movies. It seemed much less hokey than previous Bond films, which I liked. Much more human.

    haven't seen Skyfall yet, but one of my biggest complaints about the last Bond film is that it didnt seem like a Bond movie. Seemed like they were making Bond into more like Jason Bourne. Is that how Skyfall is? If so I will probably skip it.

    I mean, only in the fact that it is an action movie. Skyfall has a lot of homages to past Bond films and has more character development than anything I have really seen from the series. The plot (like all Bond plots) is a little nonsensical, but at least Bardem makes for an interesting villain.

    I didn't think Skyfall was horrible, but I didn't love it. It's a very good film, I just didn't find it very enjoyable. Maybe I'm shallow, but there weren't any of the fun moments that I can see myself waiting around 15 minutes to see when it's on TBS.

    I saw Wreck-It Ralph over the weekend with the kids. It's a kids movie....but for those that grew up in the Arcades in the 80s and have an overall appreciation for video games......you will likely appreciate this movie.

    Brave

    Pretty good. Not their best movie, but still good. Not much action at all, so that was a bit disappointing.

    Life of Pi in 3D

    A-M-A-Z-I-N-G

    This was a fantastic movie. It was so beautiful in 3D. I don't think you have to see it in 3D, but it def brought something. Highly recommended. It's a bit slow paced, but I hardly noticed cause the kid gives such a great performance.

    Skyfall - I thought Javier Bardem was fantastic as The Joker. Judi Dench was solid as Rahs Al Guhl, that Scottish guy played a solid Michael Caine. Not many people can do a better Gary Oldman than Ralph Fiennes. But one thing, who was supposed to be Batman?

    Seriously though, I can't tell which was worse this year: the new Spiderman being exactly the same as the old Spiderman so Fox could keep the rights, or the new James Bond completely ripping off Nolan's Batman trilogy and making twice as much as Casino Royale. Oh movie industry, you really are having a terrible time of it.

    Haven't seen the 2nd or 3rd new Bond films. Casino Royale was good.

    I do agree that the new Spidey movie was terrible. I like kid as Spidey, but he's so much worse playing Peter Parker. It's the exact opposite problem I had with Raimi's Spidermans'. Tobey was great as Peter Parker, but not good at all as Spidey.

    Saw Lincoln this weekend. Loved. It. Spielberg just has a way of drawing you into such an amazing story. And Daniel Day-Lewis, holy crap was he good.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Uhhh...James Bond?

    Overall, I agree with you. I liked Skyfall before I started comparing it to The Dark Knight. I understand they got a lot of inspiration from Nolan's Batman, but when you start picking it apart it gets laughable. It was an entertaining movie, but I don't like the *******ization of Nolan's Batman trilogy.

    The Amazing Spiderman

    Honestly I thought it was better than the original. Sure there were cheesy and generic moments that every superhero movie has but I enjoyed the setup for sure. My only complaint with this version as well as the previous one is having a late 20 something or 30 something playing the role of spidey.

    Skyfall - overall it wasn't terrible - it was a little better than the previous James Bond movie. If I were to compare it to a similar type of movie - MI 4 from last year, MI 4 was a much better movie. Action scenes were IMO much more memorable and there was a lot more intrique and a plot that made a little bit of sense. I just wish I hadn't wasted 3 hours and money on a very ordinary movie when there are so many good movies out right now. Should have seen Life of PI

    Lincoln - really enjoyed this movie. Felt like I was watching something important - historical - and of course it is. I hadn't read much about the movie going in so I was surprised how it basically just focused on the passing of the 13th amendment - but once I got beyond that I loved how they got into the nitty gritty of that. It turned into a very emotional movie. The acting in this movie is as good as any movie I can remember. Sure there are some parts that as you are watching seem a little dry and slow, but it is the type of movie that after it is over you realize how great it is.

    I do have a little bit of a problem with the ending. I think the way they included the fact that Lincoln was shot and killed right at the end of the movie felt unneeded. if they were going to include that at all they needed to devote the proper amount of time to it. I think a much better way to handle it would have been to end the movie with the passing of the amendment then before the closing credits to just close with the fact that he was shot only a few days after the 13th amendement was passed. IMo would have been more powerful.

    Argo - second time seeing it and liked it as much as the first time. best movie of the year IMO.

    And I really liked the new Spiderman - liked it much better than the first three.

    To each his own. I love it, and it seems like a massive chunk of other people love it. It is certainly being emulated quite a bit (notice how all these movies are becoming "darker" now). Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    It's not a comparison of quality as much as content. Most of the character beats in the movie are directly taken from the Batman mythos, the darker parts from the more recent incarnations. It's totally understandable, as the Batman trilogy has made billions, and this James Bond is grossing massive amounts. In the same way it makes sense that Fox made a new Spiderman without the slightest hint of an original thought or that Disney bought Star Wars. The only pedestal I'm putting Nolan on is one made of money. If copying his current formula makes loads, that's good business. But it's ****** filmmaking.
