Hey guys and gals!

I thought I'd see if we all can get talking and chatting more, and I really like being able to share movies I saw and what i thought of them!

I think this is the way to get the convos flowing!

i wanted to start with the last movie I saw:

Due Date (Blu-ray Rental): 8/10

Is t just me, or do they try too hard to make comedies funny these days... the old comedies seemed so much better... like the laughs were just there every time.

Like Office Space and Night at the Roxbury.

I liked this movie, but most of the laughs seem to be forced.

Anyone else see this one?

I was watching Jennifer's Body last night. Only because I was channel hopping, and Megan Fox was there. The film itself has tons of flaws, and is generally pretty poor. The idea is quite good, but it could have been executed so much better. But then who actually cares? It's starring Megan Fox, who spends most of the film in minimal clothes. Maybe the film was better than what I am giving it credit for, but to be honest I didn't really notice 8824.gif

Jennifer's Body 9/10 for hetero men 3/10 for anyone else.

I havent seen Due Date, but you have scored it pretty high for a film that you says is trying too hard. Your description makes me want to miss the film, but your rating makes me feel I have to see it.....

ROFL... 9/10 for hetero men, that is hilarious!

I honestly think Megan Fox is a pretty bad actress... plus she is really high on herself!

bet the movie would have been better if it wasn't her in it!

I did still like the movie, but it just made me think about comedies these days... it was actually better than most lately like Dinner for Schmucks...

One really good one with great comedy IMO is Easy A. Yea it's a high school movie, but it was frekin hilarious!

The Fighter: 7/10

I'm sorry but I don't see the greatness that everyone is talking about. Of course Melissa Leo & especially Christian Bale are both excellent in it but other than that it's in my opinion only a decent movie, not a great one.

I agree with you brunell... without those two, it would be just another lost boxing movie... which is too bad because they deserved better from the rest of the cast and the writers.

Good movie, two great performances!

The most recent one that I saw in theaters was The Green Hornet...was much better than I anticipated, and if you went in expecting a goofy Seth Rogen semi-action comedy, than it was pretty fantastic. Having watched nearly the entire Green Hornet TV show from the 60s, it was a decent representation/adaptation.

A few days ago, a friend invited me to watch 127 Hours on Blu-ray. I had saw the film before, but the Blu-Ray was truly amazing, especially in comparison to the small art theater I saw it in originally. In terms of video/sound quality, one of the best films I've seen in a while. In terms of the film in general, it was well done, very well acted, and albeit a somewhat simple story; beautifully told.

I agree with you all about The Fighter, it was a great movie for it's acting, but it could have had a little bit more general direction. I saw that Mark Wahlberg is wanting to do PART 2, which would feature the 3 Ward .vs. Gatti fights that took place after the events of the film. If they get the whole cast back, I think it could be a good film as long as it is more of a direct continuation than a sequel.

A good ole British movie................."Hush" [7/10]

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi926810905/

I will certainly think twice before driving up the M1 again......!


I thoroughly enjoyed this movie even though it had a Manc location and Manc Actors............but, I thought they worked well at it.
Strangely enough even though they were Manc's they managed to make the English language understandable and, nobody looked as though they completely high on drugs.
William Ash and Christine Bottomley bounced well off of each other and their acting skills were excellent.
OK....No Oscar winners here......but, keep an eye out for Director Mark Tonderai [his next movie "House at the End of the Street" is due 2012].....he has a touch of Hitchcock's about him.

Heres what "Fim" say...............

Starring newcomers Will Ash and Christine Bottomley, Hush has Mark Herbert producing, who previously worked with Shane Meadows on This Is England, and Robin Gutch, who produced Touching The Void, as well as Tonderai's partner Zoe Stewart, with whom he founded Shona Productions. The film follows a couple, Zakes and Beth, as they drive home along the M1. When Zakes sharply avoids an accident with a white van he is chased by its driver. As the couple's car is overtaken the tailgate lifts up to fleetingly reveal a woman bound and bloodied in the back. They stop at a service station, and after an argument, Beth goes missing. Warp X has said that Hush, in the great tradition of horror movies, investigates today's culture and the fears and neuroses that can arise from it. What was your thinking behind making this film?

Gone Baby Gone (2007) 9/10

I bought this movie last weekend without seeing it prior or really knowing the plot but the South Boston thriller was filled with good performances and great twist.

Worth the buy!!!

I've got to concur with Nikerun on Gone Baby Gone....I watched it a while back (more than a year), but it's a great movie if you've not seen it.

I just watched "Get Low". I never would have heard about this movie except for someone's label request that I filled. I picked it up because I figured with Robert Duvall & Bill Murray it had to be at least passable. I enjoyed it, although it is probably not everyone's cup of tea. Set in the early 1900's (maybe as late as 1920?) it's the story of a Hermit who decides to throw his own funeral party, while he's still alive.

7/10

Last movie I watched was my long-awaited BD version of 'Once upon a time in America' which still roxx!!!

I'll give it 9/10.

Acting, directing, locations, all is simply so well done. I think the last time I felt about a movie like that was watching 'Gangs of New York'

It was that movie that really gave me the respect for Ben Affleck as a director... an now with The Town, he has really gotten good.

But to me he was meant to do those things, he practically started his career when he won the award for writing wih Matt Damon for Good Will Hunting... To me that is what he is meant to do... he's way better at it any ways!

Beastly (Theater): 8/10

I quite liked this one, had some substance to it, and really liked the makeup done for Alex!

Also, Mary-Kate did a pretty good job as a creepy witch!

Faster (8/10) not a bad movie but not much of a storyline.

Burlesque (8/10) Not a pure musical but it was pretty and the story wasn't too bad.

127 Hours (6/10) It's probably just me but this really wasn't my cup of tea. I found it kinda of boring

Wow... my opinion of you is falling swiftly, bpm!! Beastly? The trailer for that teenage turd hurt me in more ways than multiple punches to the left nut... I hate when movies try to take beautiful people and make them "ugly." I mean, what was with his stitches/makeup crap? That's Hollywood's definition of hideous, a supermodel in lame makeup? Come to my town, you will find new definitions for "ugly."

And what's with referring to "Office Space" and "Night at the Roxbury" as old comedies? How old are you?!? They came out like ten years ago (maybe 15 at this point). I do enjoy them for what they are (Office Space more than Roxbury), but they're hardly "old." Granted, I'm not that old so somebody might argue this as well, but to me, old comedies where the laughs were just "there" would be Caddyshack, Dr. Strangelove, Clue, or going waaay back... Steamboat Bill, Jr. with Buster Keaton.

If only your taste in movies were as good as your cover making... 8824.gif 8824.gif 8824.gif

--

But, let's play this game...

Most recent film in theaters was "Black Swan." I give it 9/10. I take a point off because it certainly wasn't a film that leaves you smiling as you exit the theater... more like dizzy. I'm also not eager to give it a second watch, too much of a downer to be considered "entertaining." It's certainly well done and expertly acted, but it's quite a head trip. The g/f and I had to walk around outside for a little while afterwards, just to get some fresh air.

Most recent film watched was "Paranormal Activity 2" and it was probably a 2/10. More like "Normal Activity." If you want to spend 40 minutes of false tension waiting for a household object to move slightly, this is your film. The lamest part is that the studio still tries to market these films as "found footage." C'mon... we all know it's fake. That kind of crap *might* have passed back when Blair Witch kind of kick-started the subgenre, but it's played out now and kind of insulting to the audience's intelligence. Unfortunately, I'm sure there are folks who do think it's all real, and that's even more depressing... I'm not even sure why I watched it... boredom and curiosity, I suppose...

That's ok kernie, you can think less of me... for me I liked it, not because it actually portrayed ugly properly, but just because it entertained me, and the acting was decent to me!

I'm a pretty generous scorer tho, and I tend to like the majority of movies.

And, yes those are old tom me, I was younger when they came out so they are the old school comedies I like. The ones you mentioned were from before my time and frankly I haven't seen any of them... kill me if you wish, lol

Call me young, but that's just me.

And I agree about PA2, but I liked it a bit more. What did you think of the first one?

RRJR - And i can see how you might have seen 127 hours as boring, it does take place in one spot, but for me I love those types of movies (Phone Booth, Buried).
