Youth b wasted, eh?
And therein lies the rub. Only a 50 yr old will get this.
This is the movie I am talking about , Davis.
I just watched "Murder by Death" --- deliciously tongue-in-cheek, and outstandingly funny. I swear, you have not seen comedy until you've seen this gem.
At the very beginning I was slightly apprehensive, but when these names came on in the opening credits, I just knew it was going to be great: Dame Maggie Smith, Sir Alec Guiness, Peter Sellers, Truman Capote, (a relatively unknown) James Cromwell...with a cast like that, you can't go wrong!
Really? I am going to check out the movie soon. Thanks for sharing.
"Zombieland". Pretty good (the Bill Murray cameo was great) but it's no "Shaun of the Dead".
Red Cliff was good....and long.
If you haven't seen it, I would also recommend The Legend of the Shadowless Sword
This will draw another Crouching Tiger comparison but the action here is very entertaining.
I like that one.
The comma was the biggest clue that he was talking about James Cromwell, who was relatively unknown when the movie came out.
I've been going through a few time travel films in the last week:
Primer (9/10): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0390384/
Timecrimes (7/10): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0480669/
Triangle (8/10): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1187064/
Fair enough, but still somewhat confusing wording.
Seen it. It's another "wuxia" film with not much plot to speak of, but good action scenes and eye candy. The entire film is like one big chase scene. Pretty entertaining.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall... now I'd like to forget that I ever watched that movie.
Shrek 4. Disappointing.
I thought that movie was ok, nothing special though. Russell Brand is just plain awful, another example of the Brits great sense of humour.
Can I just say in defence of British people that Russell Brand is not primarily known as a stand-up comedian in the UK, more as a (not very good) TV presenter.
Go to the Edinburgh festival for an experience of the excellent quality of UK comedians.
Get him to the greek surprisingly very funny
Fair enough. I will say that John Oliver from the Daily Show is pretty funny. His piece in the Eng/US WC match last week was hilarious.
I used to like this show when I was a kid (mid 80s). Expected the film to be silly/ironic and I wasn't disappointed (better than trying to make it 'realistic' like the ridiculous new Batman films).
Unfortunately, I also expected it to be poorly done and I wasn't disappointed there either (could have been worse though, see Law Abiding Citizen for a recent utterly awful Hollywood film).
Liam Neeson as Hannibal takes about 20 minutes to say 'I love it when a plan comes together' and it sounds about as laboured as it could possibly be.
The action scenes are fine as you would expect but that's about it really. If you're looking for an action comedy film try Kick Ass instead, that was genuinely quite funny.
6 out of 10.
I actually like The Karate Kid lots.
I thought it's a children's movie?! Worth it?
my recently watched movie will be in 4 days toy story 3, right now rotten tomatoes has given it a 100 percent fresh making toy story the highest rated movie series of all time with three 100 percent fresh movies.
Meet Joe Black. Believe it or not
The A Team in the cinema and The Notebook at home.
Iron Man at home, followed closely by Iron Man II in the theatre.
I enjoyed them not so much for the movies themselves but for how my kids invited me to watch a movie with them!
Robert Downey Jr. is a really good actor. I was impressed.
At the cinema, Kick Ass. Just great fun.
Rabbit Proof fence.
Watched a few before game 6 of the finals
-War w/Jet Li
-Employee of the Month
Which Employee of the Month? Matt Dillon or Dane Cook?
Re Russell Brand, he's only funny to teenagers I think, not that many of them either probably. Not a popular guy in the UK because of an incident on the radio where he said some unpleasant things on an answerphone while on air.
Can't stand him personally, sorry for you in the US, seems he's moved over there (always seems to be on US chat shows and in rubbish movies etc anyway)
"Date Night" ----not good, i will give it 4/10
"Hot Tub Time Machine"---was fun, 6.7 /10
"From Paris with Love" ---- good action, and that all...5.5 /10
"Green Zone" , nice movie ! 7.2 /10
Dane Cook never watched the one with Matt Dillion
PU-239. Story of a Russian nuclear worker who tries to stop a leak and is exposed to radiation.
Not forgotten. Don't ever do a bad thing!! This is what I learn from the movie.
I had no idea tha Qui-Gon Jinn and that guy from District 9 were in the movie
Spring 1941 It's about a life of Poland Cello Musician. It's sad story.
from paris with love. pretty funny
Mystery Team - I give it a 4.5 out of 10. Three funny moments in the movie, the rest is irritating. I'll try not to spoil it.
Scene 1. "You want me to..."
Scene 2. The water fountain.
Scene 3. Stop sign.
The Remains of the Day. I recommend this movie to all of you. The movie was nominated for eight Oscars, including Best Picture. Anthony Hopkins is a main actor in this movie.
Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins This movie was NOT nominated for an Oscar. A shag-a-thon
Actually, I read somewhere that Dane Cook did watch the one with Matt Dillon.
Post some pics, Tina! Of you, or the actress, or maybe one of each.
I am sorry, heycal. You are not that lucky guy here at TTW
Well, why the heck not?
And why would pics be restricted to one "lucky guy" anyway?
Because I said so
Playing hard to get, I see!
