saw the iron lady.. movie was just OK..
If you want to watch a movie with a lot of action and just want to relax, I can easily recommend it.
Just finished 50/50. I really liked, it is dramatic but just when it needs to be dramatic and funny when it has to be funny. Those three young actors do a really good job too.
Red Tails...pretty cool.
That's horse$hit. That was real good movie. "every" actor wasn't a Oscar nominee but what movie is?
Ditto. In my case, it was less than enjoyable because the whole theather kept talking during the movie. Never happened to me before.... it wasn't two, three or four people talking, it was the ENTIRE FREAKING AUDIENCE.
The movie per se, merely OK.
I wasn't too fussed on The Iron Lady. There's a really thrilling story to be told about a woman who had to fight her way to the top in a male dominated world, but everything interesting or important was told through short montages. The Falklands War, the Miners Strikes etc, you could make a film about either one on their own.
I thought it was pretty poor taste too, to make a film about an elderly woman with dementia who's still alive to see it.
It was absolutely hilarious though when they covered the Brighton bombing though, Jim Broadbent standing in the rubble covered in dust "Myyyyy Shoooeeees!" :lol:
Yeah, just did this. Fast Five was fun in a summer action movie type way. Vin Diesel vs. The Rock, Fast Cars. That last chase scene was unrealistic but a lot of fun.
Can't wait for Fast 6.
Contagion with my GF, holy cow that was the worst film I've ever seen.
I chose the film and thought she would break up with me afterwards.
That was rather a documentaty than a film medical thriller that it was supposed to be.
Seriously guys I wouldn't recommend you that film.
Even worse than The Happening.
I wrote similar comments What a horrible movie.
Should have read through this thread a bit.
BTW did anyone see The Grey?
I like Neeson, thought he was badass in Taken, A-Team and Unknown.
Contagion made me feel like I was the only one in the world. And I was the only one in the room because everyone bailed early.
Watched Scarface, honestly preferred Al Pacino's character in Carlito's way than Tony Montana. Pacino at his best in that film.
Great movie, very intense but also very harsh!
Agree with you. I think Carlittos Way is an overlooked movie.
Last one I watched was The Warrior. Not a fan of MMA but movie was good.
Any opinions on In the Land of Blood and Honey?
I saw Friends With Benefit last night. Pretty Good kind of different, they could have used a better actor for the male character though.
Watched "Puss in Boots" with my daughter. Wasn't too bad and had it moments, but thought it was going to be a lot better.
I liked it a lot. Seann William Scott is very good in this role.
X-men First Class
Plan on watching Project X and Hunger Games
^^I love first class
I watched this funny ski movie last nite: GNAR, which you can watch here:
Step Into Liquid.
Wanted to see the CortesBanks footage.
This film is overwrought garbage. Chase -- fight -- chase -- fight --chase --fight. It's spy versus spy, with the usual predictable double-agent plot twists. Utterly forgettable.
Contagion. I actually found it very decent and very interesting, not bad at all.
i loved it! and i am a guy......lol
Chronicle ... loved it !!
Yeah Contagion was just one of those movies where there was just way too many things going on. I definitely did not enjoy trying to follow all the story lines, weak character development, and unexplained things, as well the fact many questions or things were left unanswered or not concluded.
Very weak movie imho.
Last movie I watched was Abduction. Had zero expectations for the movie, so I wasn't disappointed. It was decent, but obviously nothing special.
At least it was better than No Strings Attached. I think I can tolerate Timberlake way more than that jackass Ashton Kutcher.
Though I must say I like Natalie Portman just a bit better than Mila Kunis.
Either way, both movies were predictable. It's like every Vince Vaughn movie ever made - "I'm incapable of loving another person... Oh, wait, no I'm not."
watched Project X few days ago, pretty good movie.
'9 SONGS'. Nice mainstream porn movie.
The Eagle - waste of time.
Looking forward to watching Catch Me if You Can on TNT tonight. I don't believe I've ever been able to watch the whole thing start to finish, but I've seen the majority of the movie. I quite like it
^^Love that movie
Blends the worst elements of Star Wars, Gladiator, Terminator, and Cowboys and Aliens. Played mostly for laughs, no suspense, no surprises, script never makes an unexpected turn. "Are you not entertained??!!" Not particularly.
Last movie i watched was Paranormal Activity 3.
Just watched the united states of leland.
Danny darko even if it was sf explored sadness much better imo
The Oscar winning "A Separation" follows the day-to-day struggles of an Iranian family, with a plot revolving around a kind of "CSI Tehran" crime drama. The film draws you in with uniformly excellent ensemble acting.
Game Change, kind of spooky when you think it may be a true story! - in any case I think it is a good movie, good acting and directing.
Safe house - 9/10 as an action thriller. I was thrilled and there was lots of (violent) action. Nice camera work, nice acting. Taut.
Good Deeds by Tyler Perry. Great movie.
It'll rip your heart out.
With Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle. Freaking hilarious! I needed the subtitles for the first five minutes or so because the of Irish accents/slang.
:/ I was looking forward to watching it ...
'The Announcement', documentary about Magic Johnson's HIV announcement 20 years ago. Pretty compelling.
Saw The Artist this weekend. Good story, like watching a book unfold.
+1....it could have had more characterization though! Action was pretty good.
Saw "My Architect" again recently, documentary about Louis Kahn, done by his son. More personal insights than the usual documentary, nice balance of admiration and criticism.
