Fishing in Yemen
very well made movie!! it was great!
Loved it. They ramped up the action no end!
Was watching for key stuff from the original, was excited when I saw them.
Overall, a nice movie.
Agreed! Full recommendation.
Yeah, awesome movie
Thanks for the recommendation. Sounds really good. I will check that out.
Agreed, action packed. They choreographed actual fight and chase scenes where the camera is far enough away, so you can actually see the action.
I'm tired of most of today's action movies where the camera is really close, you can't see what is happening, you hear bone crushing sounds effects and see people flailing their hands, and you are supposed to assume some amazing action scene if happening, even though you can't see anything.
Men in Black 3
I enjoyed it, might watch it again...
A separation - brilliant performances.
The Lorax - A decent family film. Thought the fish sounded like a copy of the "minions" in Despicable Me.
Have the hunger games sitting at how waiting to be watched.
I also watched The Lorax last night, I think it is a good movie, at the beginning was actually kind of scary though!
Saw Another Earth a couple of days ago, great movie, kind of scary too, a bit slow at times though but good overall.
'Reagan' good documentary movie HBO that depicts Reagan in a revealing , shocking and also touching way.
Here is an interview with the director of the movie. Interesting stuff.
Little nicky - it was ok not as funny as it could have been.
Agree, there were some intense parts in the beginning. During the Onceler's "how bad can I be" song my daughter asked why he was singing an evil song.
Did you like the ending of another earth? I wish it went a bit farther.
Seeking a Friend for the End of the World - Steve Carell is always entertaining to watch!
Cabin in the Woods (2012)
Oh boy. No comment to that flick.
C'mon awesome flick.......another great flick from Joss Whedon and even better than the classic Evil Dead movies. Just can't talk to much about it as you will ruin the twists. If you liked Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse and zombie, alien, ghosts, demons, haunted house horror movies Cabin in the Woods is a killer. It's also funny as hell.
I'm probably still pissed by the ending. Could've been longer for sure.
It was certinly funny especially no doubt there.
In Norway, a headhunter steals art from his clients until the day he has to manage a special candidate with weird background.
Pretty violent but a good movie overall
Adventures of Tin Tin - Loved it. One of the better animated movies I've seen recently. I daughter loved it and asked for a copy for her B-day. Animation was great. Managed to look photo-real to a point while not engaging the uncanny valley. Only thing I found sort of weird is a 13-16 year old boy that owns a gun. I know the cartoon was from a different time, but I wasn't expecting that.
Hunger Games - Better than I thought, even though the peace keeper uniforms look like something borrowed from a 70's sci-fi movie. Can't see how anyone involved in that whole process could be considered a good guy, even the people supporting Katnis (sp?).
also made that same year, same leading actor and at least as excellent, Black Book:
I liked it; thought it is not Bill Murray's best work. Plan is to watch most of Bill Murray's movies...
Fantastic Mr. Fox
Never gets old. One of the best "one liner" movies ever.
Inglorious Basterds, crazy but funny...well done movie
Reese Witherspoon gets in the erlection race. Funny stuff.
Captain America: The First Avenger.
Dissapointing, awful character development, sloppy Avengers tie in and quite dull action.
As for the ending:
Sums it up^
I look forward to Thor however.
Not what either my wife nor I were expecting and better for it. Much more an indie, dark comedy.
The Grey with Liam Neeson. Liked it a lot.
Surprised there is a Taken2
Anybody remember the first "Tremors" with Kevin Bacon, Michael Gross, and Reba McIntyre?
Really good movie. A total surprise. The follow ups ... not so much.
Red Lights *ing Robert De Niro, Sigourney Weaver, Cillian Murphy
Brilliant concept ... "psychic versus scientist" ... and the movie starts off great to 3'forts of the movie...then it loses all its legs and ends with the retarded ending ever :shock:
Man vs. Canis Lupus - good flick.
Smart Woman (1931) - Mary Astor
Paul Thomas Anderson needs an editor. His films ramble too long, try to say too much, but never fail to provoke lots of thought, as this one does. Terrific welcome-back performance by Joachin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman is also superb.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) - so-so.
just watched lawless, best movie of 2012. crazy good if you have the stomach.
Syriana- great thriller...George Clooney is a good actor.
I don't watch movies.
The Dark Knight Rises. Loved it. Some idiots left somewhere near the end, loudly complaining. I never cease to be amazed y people's rudeness. :-?
Wow, I didn't know he had a new movie out. Got to watch it, love his movies.
The only one I thought could have used some 15 minutes less was Boogie Nights.
Saw the Bourne Legacy it wasnt that good
you dont watch movies, you dont listen to music, you dont like relationships. What do you do??
I live life in the most efficient way possible.
Being what /doing what for example?
To the rest of us, it seems to be a vague way of describing how you live..
Did you just ask NSK what he does ? *SHOCK!!!*
All the hours spent on TW (using various monikers) in vain ! He also runs a business of some sort when he finds time from TW. Or so he said.
He also said he has 4 TV's in his house and can afford to smash one. (So he has 4 TV's but doesn't watch movies!!).
Interview with a Vampire, Nice movie.
Klitschko................will there ever be another great heavyweight from the USA?
re-watched the classic The Rock
which has the greatest dialog/response when anyone says "I will do my best" LOL
when Cage says it.. response from Connery is..
Losers always whine by doing their best,
Winners go home and f@#k the prom queen :wink:
Finally got around to watching Dark Knight Rises.
Holy crap, top 10 best movies ever IMO.
A Good Old Fashioned Orgy - Pretty funny movie, good overall, and despite the title the sex actually doesn't get in the way of the comedy.
Oddly titled for a cluster of north New Jersey towns -- the action takes place in West Orange, though apparently it was filmed in New Rochelle, NY for financial reasons. Fairly unremarkable story of middle age marital angst, interesting to see Hugh Laurie (House, M.D.) in a different sort of role.
Very well made drama/thriller about Iran hostage crisis, 1979. Fine direction by Ben Affleck, who also produced and stars in the film.
Separate names with a comma.
