    i am just saying the conclusion of Mockingjay is that Katniss is hunting somebody. this is per Holliwood insider. but we dont' know who she is hunting......
    I got my idea from the Book not the movie. in the book, Katniss shoots the president with arrow in the execution. but Movie will probably do something different.

    I just Can't wait til Mockingjay comes out. I love Katness

    Utter trash. Seriously don't want Aaron Paul to go down these sh1tty roles, his talent needs to be used elsewhere.

    I looked forward to this for a long time. Finally sat down and watched it, pretty disappointed over all. Mediocre and uncomfortable at times. The movie did have some really good scenes, though over all, not my favorite.

    Finally saw Gravity on my laptop.

    The views of the Earth were stunning.

    Was it still a good experience on a laptop? Have you by any chance seen 2001:A Space Odyssey? I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would and I think the reason could be because it would be much better on a movie screen.

    Last film I watched was 500 Days Of Summer. Was a really great film,loved it.

    I have not seen Gravity on 3D so i cannot really judge. Story-wise it was a bit lame. I would much prefer Europa Report that had scientists with a scientific bent of mind.

    Grav was full of silly stories, and people reminiscing their families. I guess that's what happens when you put big stars in a sci-fi movie.

    In Europa Report, the scientist were willing to give their lives for the sake of science, for the sake of knowledge. That's the kind of sci-fi movie i can relate to, not the kind where some construction worker is picked up from nowhere and sent to blast some rocks in outer space (along with some criminals and guys on parole) and all he (they) wants is to live tax-free all his life (reference to Deep Impact or Armageddon, LOL).

    But I guess Gravity was made more for the masses. There are stories i have read long back that actually treat this issue of zero grav.

    In one book, there is a story within the story, about people working in zero grav environments high up, fixing machines, they come down to earth and often forget they are subject to grav. There was one such reported fatality of an engineer who just walked off a window or balcony or parapet. It could be been one of the 2001 sequels which has this story as a piece of history.

    i saw enders game-the movie itself follows the book plot and is interesting to watch. However the movie just doesn't generate the electric and entertaining mood the book does.

    Let the right one in.
    The European one, it was OK. Not the best or worse.

    Non Stop, another 80s style thriller, I like!

    In my opinion Gravity is nothing like Europa Report. Gravity did everything better but Europa Report is the real deal.

    Star Trek III: Search for Spock.

    I forgot how poor this movie really was but it was funny to see Christopher Lloyd as a Klingon. I'd forgotten he was in this film just before he started his famous run as Doc in the Back to the Future series.

    ST3 is a bad a-- film. Grim as f---.

    I've been indulging in dark comedies myself: the much maligned and generally ignored 'young adult' in particular, and the wonky american near classic, the departed.

    Guys, can anyone suggest me a movie similar to The Prestige? I mean Thriller/Mystery, with a great surprise ending. Something along those lines.

    The similar movies which i've watched are - The Illusionist, Shutter island, K-Pax, Butterfly effect, The man from Earth, to name a few.

    Phew ! Just saw this 2:41 movie The Desolation of Smaug.

    Too much fighting. I've seen enough fighting in a zillion other movies to see more. As an LOTR fan, and having read The Hobbit ten years back, I am rather disappointed.

    However, i did like the dragon.

    You might have seen Dial M for Murder. The later adaptation, The Perfect Murder, with Douglas and Zeta Jones has some twists and surprises.

    Yes,I enjoyed both versions. 2 other obvious ones are Seven and The Usual Suspects both from 1995,but they've probably seen those...

    I'm watching American Pie (1999) probably for the first time in about 10 years. Pretty shallow stuff,but a bit of lighthearted fun

    I had never even heard of this movie. I checked the ratings, and it has got some rave reviews.
    Thanks for the suggestion. I'll watch this one, this weekend.

    Thanks Senti, for suggestions. Nope, I haven't seen either. These are pretty old films, can you suggest me newer ones, like post 2000.

    I just haven't enjoyed the vintage movies as much. I saw the Hitchcock's famous Psycho after hearing so much about it. Although I loved the portrayal of Norman Bates character (awesome acting), I just didn't get that much intrigued by the film, overall. The background score and stuff from that era, doesn't excite me just as much.

    Btw, did you catch Ragini MMS 2? :lol: ~baby doll main sone di

    Burning Daylight (2010) which stars Robert Knepper, is a retelling of the 1914 original adaptation of Jack London's 1910 novel.

    From IMDB - :

    An adventurer, who goes by the nickname "Burning Daylight", strikes it rich during the Alaskan Gold Rush. After he achieves wealth and success in the Klondike, he sets out towards 'the lower 48' (the continental U.S.) to find new challenges, but his money making abilities do not prepare him for the vicious cons and manipulation of Wall Street. He is soon cheated out of his entire fortune, but the 'hero' now has learned the lessons 'of the street', and fights to become a success again, with the knowledge that it takes a scoundrel to beat a scoundrel. - Written by anonymous

    The action is so cartoon-ish though: not very realistic, it's more of a CGI cartoon comic book.

    The dragon is good for a few laughs as well.

    Furthermore, i can understand a 1500 page epic journey like LOTR being made into three movies, but how can you make so many movies out of a 10 page pamphlet like The Hobbit !!!! LOL.

    A murky muddy mess. If life back then was as bleak as this, I would have invented an afterlife too. Like a trip to the dentist, it feels like something you ought to do, not want to do.

    It was great. The guaalude scene was one of the funniest scenes I have ever seen. Geez, I only hope things were never as wild and bad as the movie portrays but I bet they were.

    The new Aussie girl is also smokin' hot.

    I saw The Grand Budapest Hotel.

    Classic Wes Anderson style and cast. Very good humor, good plot, outstanding cast.

    Bill Murray had a small but pivotal role that didn't show up until briefly in the middle of the movie (which was perfect) and when he appeared on screen, there was actually a short applause. Guy is awesome, I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks so.


    just in case you guys didn't know. Man's a legend.

    ^^ after his success in "Lost in Translation" Murray had an open-house party at his home (a few miles from here, near Piermont, NY) and it was truly open -- ANYBODY could walk in and was made to feel welcome.

    Just saw Muppets Most Wanted......and it was very very funny. The last movie that Jason Sigel did was too campy and goofy, this one was hilarious....coming from an old Muppet fan :)

    I do NOT like disturbing films.

    Out of your first list, the only one i have seen is Baby Jane. Not heard of the others. The second list has some famous names.

    If you like disturbing see Misery.

    Stephen King, iirc. The lady in it won an Academy Award for Best Supp Actress.

    Ah yes,I saw it in the cinema and I remember my jaw falling to the floor when she had that topless scene.

    Watching Napoleon Dynamite. Don't like this brand of comedy that much,but may as well see it out since it's not a long film
