TFM has paid
Yes the name of the movie is "Enter the Dragon". Its a martial arts classic.
I love when banned kids come right back.
A few films that I have viewed and enjoyed the last month or two: "Closely Watched Trains" (Menzel); "Performance" (Cammell and Roeg); "If I Should Fall From Grace" (about Shane MacGowan); "The Departed" (Scorsese); "The Bad Sleep Well" (Kurosawa); "Animated Soviet Propaganda" (produced by Borsten); and "The Five Obstructions" (Lars von Trier).
where the truth lies
I think you just did that to make it sounds dirty, no?? lol...
I see. Thanks.
Red Cliff, international version. It was OK.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons, awesome story.
Seen it twice. Wasted talent.
Just watched Get In To The Greek, the best movie i have ever seen, the whole cinema was in stitches!
American History X and the new Freddy Krueger one.
Loved AHX. The new Nightmare, as a huge freddy fan, was a gigantic disappointment.
Yes, it is. I love the movie as well.
Is that a good movie? Tell us more about it.
The last movie I watched was Friday the 13th part VIII: Jason takes Manhattan.
If you ever saw someone that looked like that in NYC, you would scream in terror, you would have nightmares for a week straight. If I saw Jason in NYC I would die of shock right there, I'd die before he killed me thats how intimidating he is.
imdb it. then watch it its good
There are a lot more scarier stuff in Manhattan than that. If he showed up in Times Square, he would be just elbowed around.
yup that lady back there is still smoking
If anyone tried elbowing Jason Voorhees it would be your last minute on Earth, you would be dead so fast you wouldn't even know it. He is armed and extremely dangerous, he's murdered over 120 people in some of the most gruesome methods of killing imaginable, has taken machete wounds to the skull, hundreds of bullet wounds, knife wounds, and other assorted injuries. He would turn Manhattan into a giant pool of blood there would be no end in sight to the death and destruction he would cause. Jason Voorhees is very familiar with the old Camp Crystal Lake area, as well as, the surrounding wooded areas, he still lurks in those woods waiting for his next victim.
Date of birth: Friday, June 13th, 1946
Place of birth: Wessex County, Mass.
Height: 6' 3"(est)
Hair: Blond, very little if any.
Jason Voorhees Files: FBI's Most Wanted Fugitive
Jason will be sobbing like a little girl in a corner near 34th St. after he gets b!tchslapped by the Naked Cowboy.
Look if the Naked Cowboy messed with Jason Voorhees or even got in his way, Jason would take the Naked Cowboys guitar and smash it over his head so violently he would be dead in 2 seconds tops.
Not too familiar with the story, but isn't this Mr. Voorhees fellow you speak of getting a bit long in the tooth to be going around in a hockey mask killing people? Serial killing is really a younger man's game.
"A Solitary Man" and "City Island". The latter film was better than I expected, and the former film was pretty good overall, but marred by a pat ending. The last 5 or 10 minutes compromised the integrity of an otherwise fine film.
Finally saw Avatar.
Underworld: Rise of the Lycans
It's a Chinese Masterpiece movie.
Law Abiding Citizen.
This movie had great potential (interesting concept, good special effects, potentially good story) but it kinda just fizzled out.
Basically (most) everyone in the world is a vampire and society continues on just like it does now... kids go to school, people go to work, people drink coffee (with blood in it), etc.
The main character is trying to create a blood substitute since the real stuff is running out, as humans are either killed or turned into vampires.
This movie does break a few traditional vampire rules though, so if you are a hardcore vampire fan you may get pissed at some of the liberties this film takes with traditional vampire lore.
Just watched the Crazies. It wasn't as crazy as I though it would be. However the main guy Timothy Oliphant looked just like Josh Duhamel the whole time.
Knight and Day. Not bad, works on several levels - action, spy, spy spoof, etc. Tommie and Cammie do have a bit of chemistry, too.
CC from Canada, what did you think of Avatar?
Saw "The Painted Veil" again. Very nice movie.
Before that was "Je vous trouve très beau".
I didn't mind it. We rented it so it wasn't in 3D which I'm sure made it an amazing visual appearance. I enjoyed the basic storyline although some of the dialogue I found to be forced. I think they could have cut out a good hour of the movie as it was a little long, but overall, I thought it was pretty good. Thanks for asking.
Last night I saw Blood Diamond followed by Body of Lies, boy is rotten the world we live in, good thing I caught Shrek on other channel so I had something else to think about while going to sleep.
I've been on a Tarantino ramage, Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bills, Basterds, and Pulp.
Love em all.
The wife and I wanted to see that as well, not a lot of free time though.
I told my co-workers I wanted to see it and they acted like I was Hitler reincarnated. "Dude, Tom Cruise is a scientology nut job, why the hell would you want to see him?"
I was like "does he play a nutjob in the movie?"
I could give two $hits what someone's religion is, I just like action movies and I like Tom Cruise. I find it amazing that people won't go see a movie 'cuz Tom Cruise is in it, yet they'll cheer on Tiger Woods since "they like him as the athlete, not the man."
Amen, brother, amen.
I personally thought this movie could have been better, but maybe that's due to the fact that I read the actual novels, which are some of my favorite books. There are a ton of historical inaccuracies, but I feel that it's a good movie overall.
Going to watch "The Road'' in a little bit here.
Rachel Getting Married
Don't watch this movie
Law Abbiding Citizen... The way way the judge gets it was pretty awesome....
Hope it's not as bleak as the book. A real downer. Let us know what you think of it.
Too late! Where the heck were you about six months ago?
I don't recall. Refresh my memory please?
I watched Masters of the Universe today. Old school He-Man movie from the 80's. It was so bad it was great and I am glad they made it in the 80's and not now. I like the bad acting and weird looking costumes much more than the CGI junk we get now.
I joined TTW six month ago.
Well, happy anniversary Tina.
Care to elaborate or comment? Because I really liked that movie, a few of the "hollywood" films that you could not predict the ending. Loved it...
I watched the Shawshank Redemption last night, definitely was one of the best movies ive ever seen.
Air Force One. Nothing like a good ol harrison ford action movie!
Absolutely! HF was also great (and creepy) in "Beneath the Surface". And he was quite memorable in "Regarding Henry".
