Title: That Film You Bootlegged Recently, What Is It?
Post by: Sharpshooter005 on July 28, 2007, 04:43:31 AM
So I'll just say this. I just went to see gettysburg, yet again, in a theater this time. Completely worth it.

(Also this thread can be for movies you saw why not. Unless nine wants to make one since instead of blood he has film reels flowing through his veins)

Civil War, FTW.

I saw The Simpsons Movie. Funny, but as someone who literally grew up with the show, I was a wee bit disappointed...

[EDIT] I do have the Spider Pig song stuck in my head! D:

I thought The Simpsons Movie was awesome.  I mean... dang, there aren't spoiler tags for me to go on about specific parts, but yeah.  I saw it at the midnight showing around here, and I thought it was well worth it.

This is exactly why I can't donate blood. I keep telling them, "Look, I respect what you guys do and all and I'd love to help but if you have a person dying on the verge of death that needs a blood transfusion, you're looking at the wrong man. Instead of curing that blood disease, all that will happen is that they will be able to recite A Streetcar Named Desire off the top of their heads.

...um, maybe that's not exactly a bad idea."

And Sharpie, yeah I was going to make this thread. I was going to call it "That Film You Bootlegged Recently, What Is It?" but alas.

Anyway...

The Birds (1963)
Lawrence of Arabia (1962)

I realized that in Lawrence's screenplay, alot is said without actually saying anything. And I'm going to see the Simpsons movie with my friends on Tuesday. Lol, spider-pig.

EDIT: Because of my brother, I had to sit through the Fantastic Four. Oh, how I have fallen.
EDIT: I forgot, one more picture: The King (2005)
Peace.

Most of 12 Monkeys, it was on TV.

Don't know what to think of it, I find self-fulfilling-prophecy time travel to be irritating. It was cool, anyway, I guess.




Though I'll stick with Fifth Element next time, because that at least has Gary Oldman. lol meat popsicle.

This movie, it is lol.

A couple of days ago I watched The Big Lebowski and most of The Hustler.
Last night I started watching 2001: A Space Odyssey, but started falling asleep as slow movie is slow.

I'll finish them later today, if I have time.

Yeah, NEVER watch 2001 if you are sleepy. It will knock your ass out.

THE HUSTLER! Amazing film, I need to buy that when I can.

The Number 23 wasn't as hideously lame as I was led to believe. Actually, it was pretty good.

I saw half of Pathfinder, too. It...was ok. You could tell they wanted more gore so they added cheap CG blood to every time someone got hit by something. Especially with a morning-star. 300 was better.

Course, there were better movies out this year, like Grindhouse and Transformers, but yeah, 300 was pretty extreme, and makes for good lols otherwise.

You must have seen a different version than I did, because I was bored as hell with annoying repetition and choking use of CGI and I hardly even remember a single thing from the movie really.

Except for Lena Hedley's character, she was the good alright thing there.

The doctor and the soldier guy were the stupidest ones of all sort of. "Oh hey this kids probably an asymptomatic carrier, we should definately get him as far from the quarantine zone as possible so this highly lethal virus can just keep on keeping on"

First, they give some schmo unquestioned access to everything.

Everything else you named was wildly illogical yeah, this part though they sort of explained away with him being like the chief contractor sort for the relocation facility, hence he'd have access and could probably have b.s.'d his way past some of the security.

Then again if you've ever seen day of the dead, the military in this movie were all miniature napoleons as far as tactics comparatively.

What pissed me off was how bad the quarantine actually was.
First, they give some schmo unquestioned access to everything.
Second, when someone has been bitten and infected, they don't put her or any part of the compound she is in under armed guard.
The safe house was the WORST safe house I've ever seen. Just cram all the civilians into a dark basement, without telling them why, then turning off the lights. AWESOME IDEA. And why did they turn all the lights off anyway? It's easier to hit something that's lit up.

I saw way too many movies, so I don't remember all the ones that I can list. But here's a few I guess;

The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957) Alec Guinness, William Holden, Jack Hawkins
Stalag 17 (1953) William Holden, Otto Preminger, Peter Graves

And parts of Zodiac, but I fell asleep. Not from the movie, just was tired in general. Also, Guinness' walk out of the over and to the Japanese HQ building in River Kwai was one of the best things I've seen on film. Just plain incredible.

Amores Perros (2000) A dog that goes on a killing rampage against other dogs? Good Lord, I was I came up with that first.


I refuse to believe that was what that movie was about, because I watched several parts of it when me and mine went to the house of some friends of my dad and it wasn't anywhere near as awesome as that sounds.

That's only part of it, from the angle of Dog Fighting. Its from the same director that did 21 Grams and Babel. Wow, come to think of it, his earlier stuff was better than his later stuff. That's not how this works, Innaritu.

Also, try watching the whole thing.

...Including the third one with the jetpack and the robotic ninjas or whatever the hell that movie was about (I forget if I even saw the entire thing that time it was on)?

edit: Silent Movie

edit: Very very ill-advised update for the movie I just saw last night, yes I'll get flak for it.

The Simpsons movie

And to make it worse...I actually liked it. Yes. The decade or more of waiting to see the inevitable movie did pay off, for something that had something like 14 or so writers (no seriously, there were a ton of people working on that script) it really wasn't that bad. I've waited for this movie practically since I'm old enough to remember, and wasn't disappointed.

Now you can crucify me.

Return of the living dead part 2, which was like the sequel to a pseudo-official sequel to night of the living dead (fun fact: due to a dispute over rights, one of the guys who worked on night was allowed to continue things using the "living dead" part of the title, hence all future romero zombie movies just being "(blank) of the dead") but full of slapstick and running zombies and so on.

My main contention with it is it violated the rule. I think we're all aware of what the rule is.

To be entirely clear, I really had no idea just what in the hell to expect when I first heard about this movie. I couldn't tell if it was supposed to by syriana 2 or miami vice with saudis.

What I suppose I mean, is this movie could have gone horribly wrong very easily. It easily could have just degenerated into a string of gunfights loosely connected by platitudes about "the real price of oil", or it could have gone the opposite route and become dour looking people in dimly lit rooms bickering with one another about the same subject.

Instead, the oil aspect is just covered in the opening and provides context. The remainder of the movie is basically a straightforward, well written thriller. The more action centric scenes are logical and don't just suddenly leap out of nowhere while adding nothing.

Acting wise it's pretty much what you'd expect. Jamie Foxx is good, Jennifer Garner should never have made it past that ABC show where she wore various wigs. Jeremy Piven plays the exact same character he's played in everything he's ever been in. The remainder of the cast is good, particularly the Saudi equivalent of and ad hoc "partner" to Jamie Foxx's character.

Yeah, something about Garner is obnoxious. Her lips and eyes are too big for the rest of her face. That and the fact that she always plays a superheroine or tough girl, as opposed to a regular person.

Somethin' so lol. So The Kingdom is alright, Sharpie? Yeah from what I heard, its suppose to be a straight up action piece reflecting our times but not to pound the message over the head with an "important message".

Have you heard about George Clooney's Michael Clayton by any chance? And I really want to watch the new Jesse James picture.

Honeslty, who watches the extras on these dvds? ???
Um... I do. I'm actually surprised as how many people don't watch the extras. You get another point of view of the movie from those who actually made it, what the movie means in its actual terms and how some of the shots and production was actually made.

"Honeslty", I can't watch a DVD without watching the special features.

I watched the recent animated feature from Lionsgate, Doctor Strange. While it wasn't exactly bad, it wasn't great. If I had to score it, I'd give it a 75%, maybe a little higher. Not excessive suck, but the movie was too slow for a animated movie based off a comic book, and having almost all the summarized action take place in the last ten minutes was not cool.

For some reason while I lay in bed ill and convalescent a few days back I felt the urge to watch movies like mad. I ended up watching Starship Troopers (whereupon I watched the Roughnecks CGI animated series to get the taste out of my mouth), Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn (Janemba!), some Samurai X movie (remind me why they made these movies again?), The Godfather Part 2.

All in all, some decent movies, some good movies, and some downright horrifically mindless action flicks, complete with gratuitous co-ed nudity and epic violence.

Transformers was pretty kickass. I agree with the people who made the "too many people not enough robots" complaint. The fight between Prime and Bonecrusher was lame because it lasted a total of 12 seconds. In fact, the Decepticons overall had nowhere near enough screen time, the only ones that really mattered were Starscream and Megatron, who both didn't appear until near the end.

Gremlins.

We weren't taking it seriously, and missed most plot moments, and due to people stepping on the controller multiple times, saw the beginning of the Gremlin bar-scene three times.  But so much hilarious death.  Had to be told the cat-lady on the stair-chair was the same evil woman who hated Charlie.  Considering she was walking just fine during the day, but then at her house was uber-slow and didn't have on her wig.

Very funny, and such.

I've been a way a while, but I've got a bunch to add...

We spent Christmas with my "in-laws", who just got digital cable, so we watched:
Annapolis
The Pursuit of Happiness
Invincible
The Guardian

Also, my wife brought some Christmas movies. So, we watched:
Miracle on 34th Street (Original B&W version)
Christmas with the Kranks

Finally, we stopped in at the local theater, and saw The Water Horse. In the previews, they showed some cool clips of Speed Racer, but one character may have undergone major changes, so I don't yet know whether I'll bite.

Also, I watched most of The Santa Clause 2 (missed beginning, but I've already seen I so didn't miss anything), some of The Preachers Wife, some of Eight Below, and "A Christmas Story". Fun times...

Haven't seen Sweeney Todd, but it was a school musical back in High School. One of my best friends played the Judge, hahaha, so I don't feel obligated to go see it.

No Country for Old Men.

VERY memorable. Probably the most suspenseful and tragic film I've seen, with a villain that ranks up there with Vader. The assassin Sigur is the stuff of your nightmares. Not because he's a cannibal or a scary-looking robot-monster.

There's no music, and most of the killing tools or sinister deception is done with everyday items, otherwise innocuous junk. Also, Tommy Lee Jones' performance is classic.

Well I went to a local International film festival and watched "The Cat Returns" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cat_Returns) also know as "Neko no ongaeshi" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0347618/).

The movie was made by Ghibli studios and directed by a Miyazaki underling. To my surprise it wasn't too "cute" or too "moe", it was a nice balance of everything. It was a treat for the little kids there (lol cats) but also had a story and jokes adults would enjoy. I give this movie a 8.5/10, a very nice Anime movie. ;)

I saw Cloverfield tonight. It's pretty darn good. However, I am apparently one of the unfortunate few who Cannot ____ing Handle prolonged disorienting visual stimuli. I've been on the verge of throwing up since I got out. Four hours ago. I got a headache early on, then got a little dizzy, then my stomach started to hurt a bit, and then I started BURPING and I was like, "oh. oh no." Aaaand then I started to taste bile. But I said to myself, "look, I am NOT going to be that person who throws up in this theater." So I didn't. Still, not fun. Not fun at all.

Still, though... it kind of added to the experience...

Anyway, yeah I got a little nauseous from Cloverfield, too. Which was really weird because that's never happened to me from a movie before.

NOT THAT BIG OF A SPOILER ALERT

there was one thing that bothered me about it, and you'd probably have to live in/near NYC to even notice it:
When they're all on the roof, looking at the omgwtf happened, the view makes it seem like the party was in Brooklyn, it was a nice panoramic shot of lower Manhattan. But when they get outside, they're in the middle of lower Manhattan. That bugged me a little.

Forget ya Cloverfields. You need to visit The Orphanage (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0464141/).

It's really well directed, with some crushing irony, and damn, damn it's scary. Like "staying up in bed for an extra hour, talking about the movie because you're both freaked" scary. With this, Shyamalan doesn't even compare to Del Toro.

I haven't seen Pan's Labyrinth, but according to my gf, The Orphanage was even better than that.

Got back from a campus showing of "We Own the Night".

As per tradition, it was an early take or something, so it was too tall, cutting off almost all subtitles for the Russian throughout, and boom mics were prevalent.  Also, it didn't have the opening credits.   Things that JMU's theater does oddly aside, quality movie, sad, emotional, and though the protagonist does some really stupid stuff near the end, still fairly easy to suspend the disbelief.

hahaha, nah couldn't be further from the truth. I'll send a PM, though you can learn my location by finding a certain thread in the forum.

I felt that The Da Vinci Code was a book with interesting substance but poor style, and the movie was the same.



Just finished watching the 1957 classic, The Seventh Seal (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vyqg017aFrY). Pretty profound. Pretty damn good. It's definitely going in my collection.

if you think about it, the davinci code actually makes no sense... I am a catholic, and have never felt that they tried to take away christs humanity. the only thing that did make sense was that jesus was a jew, which makes it reasonable that he should have married. I need a jewish person to explain that more thoroughly to me, however...

On Thursday I went to see 10,000 BC.

Speed Racer. Was like being stabbed in the eyes with candy. Pretty excellently cast, too, and the driving portions were choreographed like matrix fight scenes. Also, the head-wipe thing was pretty cool too (I mean, scene transitions were done with scrolling heads, announcers, etc).

Saw 21.

'twas alright, the Asian dude was by far the best character.

Like, I'd watch a movie that was just the same story, but from his perspective instead of the main character.

Last night, my wife, and some of my relatives and friends (about 10 of us) saw a sneak preview of "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull", thanks to my "baby sister" and her fiance, who ran across some free passes.

Since this film isn't officially out yet, and I didn't watch any of the this films teasers/trailers before the seeing actual film, I don't want to say anything "spoilerish". So, I'll keep it brief: I liked it. It's a "different" sort of film from the other Indiana Jones films, but still very entertaining. All of the good elements of the other films (well-defined heroes, colleagues, and villians; humor; action; mystery and puzzles; danger and adventure) are in this film. It didn't seem to be lacking in anything, or appear too long, too rushed, or too short. Good movie.

Speed Racer was a long, boring disappointment.

It... I don't even know what I watched, really. I got the same feeling during Spider Man 3, I looked back and forth to the people I was with, and we were all "Are we asleep? Hallucinating? What's going on?"

Spoilers follow, don't know how to do the code on this board/don't think it exists/

I mean I know its stupid to complain about plot in an Indiana Jones movie (... from the snobby critic perspective anyway, but certainly not the internal-logic perspective), but there was just no development here, I didn't hate the villain at all (right, I know, nobody hates Darth Vader, but you know he's the bad guy. The only reason this chick was that bad guy was because she was communist, which... yeah, ok, I get that. But she didn't do anything to make me feel like she needed to explode. Those aliens, by the way, were total jerks). There was the lack of a concrete finale, too. Sure we got the race through the jungle, but that's the sequence before the finale, not the finale. They get to the city and nothing of consequence happens (weren't even any booby traps! How can there not be booby traps in an indiana jones movie!) and then Mac is all "in case you didn't watch the Mummy, this is what happens to Benny" and the communists are all "look! Aliens! Lets... wait nothing really happens in this scene!"

Also, no apparent significance to anything that was happening. Sure she was all "we can use this to mind control stuff! Really! No we totally can!" but it was clear that was not what would happen in any capacity. It just... was sort of stupid.

What I'm trying to say here is that the movie was a disappointment to me for entirely the wrong reasons. I had no problem with Ford, who I was afraid would be old and vacant, or Shia Lewhatsits, because he's kind of a punk, and was in a remake of Rear Window. I had no problem with the monkey vines or the nuke or anything else like that. The problem was that the whole crystal skull thing, the way it was worked into the story, hell even what it was was just plain stupid.





Also Speed Racer was an amazing film.

Ok, i am a total fanastical nerd, and a teenaged girl (which is totally relevant if you look and the male cast!) but i haven't seen it yet, and so for i have definitely been dissuaded from wanting to see either jones or racer, not that i wanted to watch racer anyway...

Post by: Big Money on May 29, 2008, 06:24:24 AM
Chalk it up to expectations, I guess. I didn't know what to expect for Indy 4, but assumed the mythology part of it would carry the same weight that it had in the others, and ended up feeling like it was just inconsequential to the action of the movie. Of all the things I expected would go wrong, that wasn't one of them, and ended up feeling burned for it. Eh. If you don't agree there's no problem with that.

Same goes for Speed Racer. I had low expectations, and was more than pleasantly surprised. It had bad dialogue, and the action was interrupted frequently by nonsense bits from spridle and chim chim -- which is pretty much exactly what I remember the show as being. Added to some clever film making and wonderfully choreographed everything, and the result was something I really enjoyed. I found it to be a much better experience overall, and those of my buddies that saw both of them agree.

To each his own.

The main feeling it creates is one of complete helplessness. The suspense is painful to endure because the rules of the danger aren't completely defined, even by the end of the movie. There isn't much to bite into.

I saw "Mongol." Really hardcore and badass, and well-budgeted, but not flashy. A couple hours into the movie, it ended abruptly with "BUT THE REIGN OF GENGHIS KAHN WAS ONLY JUST BEGINNING." First of a trilogy? I had no idea.

It definitely needed smoother transitions, but I enjoyed it.

Yeah me too, kinda. The first part delivers in the sense that it makes good on the "what if superman was a hobo, and drunk all the time?" angle.

Then it gets muddled in its own stupid backstory (here it suffers from a bit of what dragged Pirates III down for me; they really ought to have only referred to it obliquely).

Also, and related to the above, an irritating change of pace, tone, writing, about halfway through.

Batman Begins. I have some qualms, but not significant enough to dislike this film. Not action over story, or story over action. I found action and story competing for my attention. Interesting... Reasonably fleshed-out characters for a "first-in-a-series" film...

X-Men III. Good movie.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v617/BigMoney/angryfaeccn.jpg)

Well, I did say "good" and not "GOOD", or something along the lines of "Great movie!" or "GREAT MOVIE!" Mildly entertaining, even if I didn't entirely care for the ending. I kind of felt like the younger brother in the thunderstorm scene of the movie "The Boy Who Could Fly". (How's that for an obscure movie reference?)

Hank Pym found a way to shrink himself, using a new type of particle he named "Pym Particles".  He also made a helmet that let him command ants.

He soon lost his fiance, and then ran into the daughter of a wealthy industrialist or something who looked just like his late fiance, and gave her super powers so they could both save her father.

They got married, Pym found a way to make things grow too, another guy took the Giant Man mantle for a while, Pym goes crazy and thinks he killed himself and changes his name, making a costume that has shoulder-disk things that let him fly.

This isn't even half of his story, and I'm already know it's too much.  He got shafted a lot, but was best in his "Hank Pym: SCIENCE Adventurer" days.  He shrunk nail-guns and other things into his coat pockets, and then would enlarge them to shoot people.  He also would shrink the particles in a wall, causing a hole to open.

He also banged Tigra.

Hellboy II was rad, I enjoyed it immensely -- better than the first in my opinion -- acting was better, script was better, there's this bazaar scene that felt like a Star Wars cantina scene, except with Guillermo del Toro monsters in it, which was seriously cool.

Though, if you like the first for the nazis and rasputin, etc, or the space gods (... ok, if you saw the first because you liked the comic books) then this might not be the movie for you.










Because there aren't spoiler tags, don't read past this if you don't want spoilers.


Abe and Hellboy singing was incredibly lulzworthy, as was in general drunk Abe.

I gotta wonder though, near the end when princess-chick was all "he's so-and-so son of the fallen one" or something, shouldn't it be more like "son of the horrible 7 space gods stuck in a crystal mired in the crushing infinite blackness of the etc etc etc etc" key difference being ogrdu-jahad and not, like, the devil or whatever she was referring to.

I really want to see Hellboy 2, if only because I think direction similar to Pan's Labyrinth will make it 1000X better than the first Hellboy movie (I have great admiration and respect for the SFX and direction in/of Pan's Labyrinth).

I finally watched everything there was to watch on the special edition set for "Batman: Gotham Knight", and I say that it is Epic Win. The "eastern" style worked exceedingly well Batman and didn't distract from the story/action, and the 6 shorts were incredible in their detail and approach. (Also Kevin Conroy as Batman = W00T). It wasn't all "Look at us! We're Anime!", in fact there were only 2 shorts where the Anime influence was strong enough for me to say "Now that's Anime", but at the same time it was in a very detailed and realistic style (like that of Steamboy or Death Note) and not like the stereotypical dime-a-dozen animes.
My favorite short had to be Dead Shot in the Gotham Knight mini-movie, although kudos go out to Field Test as being runner-up with its near perfect "Batman Begins"/"Dark Knight" canonicity.

Highly recommended for anyone who likes Batman, or The Big O (lulz batman as a robut).

Hellboy II was rad

Gratuitous scenes in Hellboy: (SPOILERS)

Fight with the elemental. Instead of sending butterfingers Abe to catch the jumping bean with his hands, Hellboy should've shot the seed with his enormous gun before it reached water. Even though he didn't do that, however, Hellboy also could've shot the Elemental in its "energy cortex" as it was rising up, again finishing the fight before it started. Carrying the baby the whole time was also stupid. Just hand it off to somebody before you start the acrobatics. btw, the sequence with the Elemental knocking over cars as it lumbered down the street towards the camera -- War of the Worlds.

Men in Black knockoff. The Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense (BPRD or BURPED for short) was stuttering on about the anti-acid pills he buys, including where he buys them and whether or not they're over-the-counter, not because this is important or interesting, but because there's a generic tentacle-monster flailing in the background. Flash several other creatures in an off-hand, obligatory manner.

Fight with the tooth-fairies. You know the from moment that Jill walks into the ransacked auction hall, she's the one with the skills to eliminate the swarm with her area of effect pyrokinesis. But instead of having her blast away, everyone starts shooting individual fairies with their pistols, and we have to watch the human agents get gnawed to pieces before Jill finally starts chanting "There is a flame inside me, THERE IS A FLAME INSIDE ME," like a cheesy inspirational film, and finally kills the buggers.

(inconsistency: they're called "tooth fairies" because they love calcium and eat your teeth first, but the agents' meatless skeletons still had their teeth intact.)

The entire movie. If the crown melts in fire, why didn't the elven king destroy the crown instead of breaking it in three? Even if the King wanted it as an insurance policy against the humans, he must've realized that it was going to fall into the wrong hands as his guards died in front of him. Even then, he could've done something to destroy it.



Abe and Johann = gay lovers. The princess had to die so that Abe and Johann can get together in Hellboy III.

Krauss was fun to watch, and has a cool design. Same goes for the Golden Army and the Elven swordsmen (Pyramid Head, woot).

Post by: Big Money on July 13, 2008, 03:02:09 AM
Spoilers Continue

Look, it isn't my job to defend movies that other people made, but... lemme just offer some counter points here.

Hellboy is a terrible shot, he says as much in the first movie. Also, if he had to be told to hit it in the... whatever Johann calls it (something ganglia) then he wouldn't shoot there first. Also, he was carrying a baby, and running away from it. Why was he carrying a baby? Same reason he blasted himself out of the window -- he wants to be liked and accepted and to be a hero.

Besides, movie logic -- they wanted a big monster to fight. At least you didn't ask about why the prince was in that scene, talking to HB on the top of the hotel sign, which I thought was pretty obvious but is a common question I've seen elsewhere.

I think everyone in my theater thought the same thing about the hallway scene, but I also didn't care, so... whatever.

Jill would've killed the redshirts, and Abe, if she'd flame on'd right off. Besides, killing BPRD redshirts is a kind of a running joke, I've heard. In the one BPRD graphic novel I've read, they were just cannon fodder.

Last one I've seen answered by someone else, and went something like "do you take the bullets away from a police officer just because a criminal might get it?" Dude was clearly convinced his people could kill his son, otherwise he wouldn't have sent them all to their death.

The real inconsistency there is why didn't the princess challenge her brother? I mean, what is he going to do, kill her? The only answers I can come up with are -- she was somehow ineligible for the throne (... kings only? I dunno, seems sort of randomly sexist) which I don't buy, and the other being that She wouldn't have done it except as a last resort, which is pretty much what happened (kind of... in a movie logic kind of way) which I think is a more reasonable answer.

Which is why she should've said right off, "Get out, I'm going to fry them all."

Quote
Besides, killing BPRD redshirts is a kind of a running joke, I've heard. In the one BPRD graphic novel I've read, they were just cannon fodder.

That'd be fine, but they took too long to die. Too long like the hallway scene.

Quote
Last one I've seen answered by someone else, and went something like "do you take the bullets away from a police officer just because a criminal might get it?" Dude was clearly convinced his people could kill his son, otherwise he wouldn't have sent them all to their death.

I see. The king should've had his men examined for stormtrooper syndrome. Then again, that's to be expected.

Quote
The real inconsistency there is why didn't the princess challenge her brother? I mean, what is he going to do, kill her? [/quote

Good point. But I'd say the reason for her not challenging the prince is that, when it comes to her brother, the princess just can't say no. If you know what I mean.

The Simpsons Movie:
Very entertaining even to this day... If you see the special features, they mention that everything was "drawn" directly (not scanned) into an animation system by animators, allowing them to finish the movie faster. Interesting, but I guess we can't buy any animation cells, huh?  ???

Pirates of the Carribean: At World's End:
Mike: I see what you meant about this third Pirates film. Instead of feeding us the backstory a little each movie, they try to shove all of it and this film's story into our heads at once. Concentrate on one and lose the other... Not too much fun trying to keep up with everything... Still mildly entertaining, though, and I did like some aspects of the ending.

WALL-E at 5:20. It was fun, but not as ZOMG MINDBLOWING as people kept tell me.

The Dark Knight at 12:01. The mind-blowing that WALL-E failed to accomplish happened here instead. The only thing that ticked me off was how Joker uses face-paint instead of having his skin bleached, but that little nitpick aside, there was quite literally nothing I can complain about.

Um, either way, he's a sociopathic clown. It's better, personally, to go full out with characters like that. There's a concept called Too Much Of A Good Thing, and I think Joker's appearance embodied too much realism in this film.

Here's the question to be asked: which is scarier? A killer with chemically deformed, bone-white skin, or a killer with haphazardly applied, blotchy face paint?

I think the latter's scarier, because the former is something you'd expect from a cartoon villain, and it just makes me smirk and say "oh of course. He fell into a vat of dreaded CHEMICAL-X!"

Saw it a second time, and I enjoyed it even more. Probably because I wasn't watching from the front row.

On Saturday:
College Road Trip - DVD: Good, but keep in mind that it's Disney, so expect some "Disney cliches"
Semi-Pro - DVD: Some people like it, and some people are "meh". I liked it.

...and on Friday, a little movie called "Batman: The Dark Knight"... It was good...

Oh my gosh! Did I just commit heresy?!? Um no. It's just that with all the films that are billed as "worth the hype". I actually thought this film deserved better than the usual overblown movie hype. Not that it doesn't have it's spectacular moments. It's just that at the end, your going to walk out thinking "wow, that was really good..." Therein lies the splendid craftsmanship of the filming staff/production staff/cast (not listed in order of importance, but all of them on the same level). Some flaws yes, but a very good film.

By the way, did anybody here ever rent DVD's from a Red Box machine? They're pretty cool. I rented the two DVD's above from one, after seeing The Batman:

The good: $1 rental. No membership fee. You can return movies at any Red Box, not just the one from which you rented the DVD's. No late fee (each extra night is just another $1).

The bad: Since it's like a regular rental, you pay sales tax (minor issue). You must use a credit card (very minor issue). To get your receipt, you must type in your e-mail address (minor issue, because you can skip this step, too).

Bonuses: All rentals must be overnight, so if you do like I did, and rented at about 1 or 2 AM in the morning, you don't have to return it until 9PM the next day. When you do return it, if you gave it your e-mail, it will send you "movie was returned" e-mails with date and time, so there's no question you took them back.

Of course, I'm not going to ditch my video store card (Red Boxes have limited selection), but this could give NetFlix some competition...

Heath Ledger was awesome but I found Christian Bale's performance a little irrtating since he sounds like a Carl McCoy impersonator when he speaks as Batman.

I just watched a Korean film with the English title of "The President's Last Bang".

It's a fictionalized account of what happened in 1979 when South Korean president Park Chung Hee was assasinated. It had a really good soundtrack, the vocal bits were top notch (Enka! Yay! Jaurim! Yay!), and had a moody sort of noir set of theme musics.

Agreed 100-fold.

Heath Ledger is my 2nd favorite Joker officially. 1st Favorite in the live-action ones, but 2nd overall... that honor goes to Mark Hamill's Joker in "Batman: the Animated Series".

I absolutely loved the story line with its intensely complex plot line and really dark humor. (Disappearing Pencil trick, NEED I SAY MOAR)

I watched it again because the people I was hanging out with wanted to see it, and it was damn funny enough to warrant watching it again.

And children's tickets only cost $7.50, and the ticket-takers aren't going to care, because they aren't going to be rewarded for calling someone out on it.

Only $7.50? That's the price of a student ticket around here, but it still sounds expensive.

And Pineapple Express and Step Brothers would be easily worth a second viewing.

Last movie I watched was Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which was pretty lame overall. Just before that, I saw either Mirrors or Journey to the Center of the Earth; can't remember which. Journey was alright, but I must say I enjoyed Mirrors more than I expected I would.

M.D Geist on Sci-fi.

Good lord, no wonder anime got a bum rap as "super violent" back in the early to mid 90's, however, I got a kick outta the over the top violence and despite the dub being the usual U.S Manga corps suckfest, I though Jason Beck was awesome as Geist, it's a shame he died in 03.

Thoroughly enjoyable. Especially the massive robots with the glass cockpit canopies, thin enough for a man to punch through. Bonus points for the grenade dangling from the hilt of the combat knife--because you have to blow up the poor bastard after you stab his brain.

I missed the last nine minutes but I can't imagine it was the ending. Surely they must be playing the rest next Monday. I'll be watching.

I saw Quarantine and like everyone else, I was surprised at how good it was. It's best to watch it with a rowdy audience, especially a ghetto audience if you can.

Ringu - More fun than creepy, but it had its moments for sure. Sadako is a BITCH. It made a lot more sense than the American remake, as you'd expect.

I mean the family was... most of the movies they show are only in there cuz the actors are hispanic, not because only hispanic teens get pregnant at 16, or lose their jobs, or get murdered for feeling out of place in their bodies... I think it'd bother me less if they weren't making an effort to make it "hispanic"...

There Will Be Blood was also a damn good movie. The end was epically dark-humorous.

It Waits was the last movie I watched before I hit the hay.

I loved the excessive use of Rag Doll deaths, cheap awful plastic body parts and Sci Fi Original level CGI.

"Straight Jacket," the ani-Monday movie. This is what Fullmetal Alchemist shoulda been like!

Fun stuff, if a tad bland. Seems like a videogame in the making. Also, there was a silly moment in the beginning when Steve Blum effectively spoke to himself through two different people. I counted three Blums in ten minutes. "When push comes to shove, the price suddenly becomes negotiable." lol.

And then there was Shion from Xenosaga! ahaha.

I'm watching this as well. I'm really digging it. Love the Power Armor designs as well and Brigit Hoffman? I was sold then and there. I'm also getting a Fullmetal vibe from it, except it's about 10x more awesome.

No.
Sometimes they end in Monster. Like Swamp Monster and Rock Monster.
Sometimes they just take a word and put it next to Alien. Examples include:  Alien Invasion, Alien Express (aliens invade a train), and Alien Incursion (Whatever that is)
Sometimes they like to use a single word explaining the animal. Such as Kaw (For killer crows), Locust, Mosquito, or The Hive (Which was about Ants... not bees *Slaps forehead*)
Sometimes they'll be named after the animal in question: Pterodactyl, Sabertooth, Rottweiler.

And many times they'll just have such silly names that it amazes me they had the balls to display their names in the credits. Aztec Rex (T-rex vs Cortez vs Aztecs), Killer Bird Flu (About giant birds that eat people... and also have bird flu for some reason), Boa vs Python (It's about what you think it's about), SS Doomtrooper (Nazi super soldier), Frankenfish (Again... it's about what you think it's about), and the list goes on.


If you're really into bad movies (beyond SciFi too) I have a list I wrote up giving out awards for subpar performances in various areas such as: Most stereotypical characters, Most shallow plot, Stiffest action scenes, worst CGI, most unnecessary explosion, and so on. We call them the Crummies.

Just got done watching Freddy V.S Jason on Sci-Fi.

I love this movie, not because of the horror icon's but because Ronny Yu turned everything into your run of the mill Asian wire fu fest, that combinded with the 3rd grade dialog(seriously, Freddie's line where "Take this bitch" or some other variant), and you have an amazingly Sci-Fi channel level movie. The Nu Metal soundtrack was also made of fail.

The second one is a lot better, I recommend it if you liked (or sort of liked) the first one contingent on whether the reason you liked it was the Nazis and the space gods and what have you; there are no Nazis and no space gods in II

I didn't just watch this but I've been thinking about it: Did anyone else see Prince Caspian, and did you enjoy it? I thought it was pretty fantastic, same as above; it seemed overshadowed by other movies but I thought it was worth the money I payed for it.

Gotta disagree there. Terrible editing, very jumpy plot. Dialogue was fast and low, impossible to follow when the plot was progressing. And the cycle of place-chase-place-chase was showing through. What was with all the improbably near-death escapes, too?

Casino Royale and You Only Live Twice still stand at the top of the pile.

Ya know, I have never even heard of the book this movie is based off of, yet it's a "Pop culture Hit". I've seen the commercials, and it looks pretty damn boring with tons of wire-fu and 18 year old vampire angst, oh yeah and bad acting.

And the only reason Graham hasn't heard of it is because he's a boy. Every one I know heard about it by mouth. I've never seen advertisemnets for the books. maybe one.

Kristen Stewart should be banned from ever having a lead role again. I mean, she sounded dead!!! the only time she didn't was when she woke up in the hospital. I mean, the dialogue is what makes the relationship between Bella and Edward so great, and those two killed it.

And jasper did look like he was in pain. That was hilarious.

It featured busty bikini models running through forests while being chased by a poor CGI dino-croc. I've never seen such unashamed use of the monster during the daytime.

You can tell it's a Sci-Fi Original with the hammy acting, 3rd grade writing, and Z grade CGi. I loved how the Cyclops was almost unstoppable, but was killed by a single spear to the eye, and a 4 foot fall. The movie was also filled with weird deaths, i.e cutting a guys throat (with grape juice blood no less) with a key, slashing a guy in the chest and then his neck starts bleeding, and decapitating some one simply by swing close to the them. Good ol' Sci-Fi.

The remake of "The Day the Earth Stood Still" on Sunday in IMAX.  I thought it was alright, but preachy and the ending sucked, whereas everyone I saw it with hated it.

I like how entire the Aztec Empire is represented by about 7 Hawiians (The credits identify them as a Hawiian acting troop) wearing tattoos of German flags.

I also like how sneaky the dinosaur is. How can you not notice a 20 ton monster until it's right next to you? He sneaks up on so many people in this movie. As I can recall, he eats a guy's legs while the man is sleeping. That's stealth.

I use "watched" in a very loose sense, as I and another one of the guys were playing TF2 at the same time, while housemate 1 was occasionally trying to explain what happened to the other people, and on more than one occasion telling things that we weren't supposed to know yet, and sometimes just plain being wrong.

I watched The Unborn because I wanted to watch a horror flick with my woman and I thought, hey, co-writer of Dark Knight, it's gotta be half-decent, right? Wrong. Completely, utterly wrong. Shoulda seen Frost-Nixon or Slumdog Millionaire instead.

It's perplexing that a writer attached to such a gripping production as Dark Knight could also be responsible for such a pile of crap as The Unborn.

My sister wanted to go watch the unborn with me, because she is the evil twin... >.>
I finally watched Iwo Jima. I thought it was really good. My friend was the one who caught it, but the main character's name, Saigo, is a pun. Saigo means last. While there were some tell-tale signs that it was made by americans, I thought it captured the spirit of the japanese idea of honor.
What irked the fan in me was that it was filmed in CALIFORNIA. The landscape is very familiar to me. The reason it irks me is because if I had been a fan of Ninomiya-san 5 years ago, i could have been all over barstow and berkley when i heard they were filming. m(_,_)m

Star Trek: Insurrection (from my movie collection) - OK, nothing groundbreaking here. It was basically a movie length Star Trek Classic Series episode with The Next Generation crew instead of Kirk and crew. I will neither bash it into the earth, nor raise it on a pedestal. I liked it, though.

Marley & Me - Mrs. Negotiator and I took in an afternoon movie. OK, liked it. It's not a "reimagined Old Yeller" story either...

Fun. First time I caught the entire movie. Hitomi needed more character development, though.

There was a gaffe when an actor said "multiple-cannon" instead of "multipede-cannon." :(

Are there more Appleseed movies from the 80's-90's? I wasn't too impressed by the 2000's ones.

I loved how every other word was the tired and true cluster F bomb. Half way decent OVA though.

Not to mention the dub was down right awful (a trademark of Manga UK), with Karen having one of the most monotone and unemotional voices ever.

Fearless was good, but Hero was better.  :P

Also, Fearless sometimes felt like propaganda. I don't mean the hero's triumphs over the cheating Westerners. I'm talking about the one part in the movie where he finds complete and utter fulfillment from a simple life in the fields. It's probably just an innocent part of the story to develop his character, but since the movie is Chinese, it reminds me of something a totalitarian would say. Be simple, have no thoughts or worries but work; you will find contentment! That kind of thing.

Splinter (Sci-fi original)

Twas ok. Gore was pretty cheesy, like the part where the sheriff got ripped it half and the "totally realistic latex". Movie also seems like a bit of a rip off of the thing i.e it uses body parts from it's victims. Overall it was light years ahead of the normal crappy Sci-Fi original.

Splinter was actually pretty good. It just goes to show you that the SciFi Channel actually does give these guys a big enough budget to make good films. Most directors just blow it on CGI instead of, say, night cameras, decent actors, and a writer.

I've watched a few novices since Saturday, however the stand out was.... Alien v.s Hunter, a Sci-fi original billed as "action packed" but mostly consisted of the cast running around in a sewer from the spider alien. Wasn't a whole lot of CGI, and the gore was limited to repeating the same shots over and over again.

After splinter I was expecting another movie that at least tried. Splinter made that 1-2 million budget work, and pull off a decent movie. However I'm pretty sure that was a one time deal. Hydra was also lulzy.

I missed most of Alien vs Hunter because of Street Fighter, but I saw parts of it and it looked like it was trying to be a B-movie, which I don't like. The funniest part about those movies is watching the director fail at making a competent film, but if he's specifically instructing the actors to deliver their lines like morons, he's defeating the purpose.

Also, just before we forget Splinter forever, I just wanted to point out that a man got his arm cut off and was still in good enough shape to repeatedly fire a pump action shotgun with his remaining arm while standing up about 20 minutes later.

First half-hour of Street Fighter II. Or whatever the official title is.

Ken is extremely gay. His talk about giving flowers to ladies is just a cover.

I'm glad they call it Shadowlaw and not Shadowloo as I often see it spelled.

Chun Li was well-designed. Whenever I read her character description and it mentions her as an undercover investigator, I have to wonder... how? Who would go into an investigation wearing enormous spiked bracelets and a flashy, revealing qipao? Yeah. The Chun Li in the first half hour of the movie, that I could get behind.

Couldn't be them. Metropolis died in a car accident a couple years beforehand.

Eh, overall I think it failed to reproduce a couple dramatic moments from the book. Like the "you quit" line in the beginning--the guitar plucks immediately afterwards were soap-opera melodrama cheese. Then, the changes and additions made to the ending scenes kind of flubbed the impact there.

Instead they blasted ten seconds of music at the beginning of every new scene in an attempt to speed-cook the drama.

Yeah. Not bad, but meh.

There is a lot of theory about Captain Metropolis not being that body, since it had been decapitated and therefore unidentifiable.  It stems from the likely relationship between Captain Metropolis and Hooded Justice, and hinges that the body presumed to be Muller's not being Hooded Justice, either through them being different people or the body simply not being Muller.  The Captain's old flame convincing him to stage his death so they can live happily ever after.  Their bow-ties looking like domino masks supports the theory, with a weaker bit of evidence being how Moore doesn't leave things unfinished or unturned.  An example of such being that the script for the first panel of Last Laugh was a page long, single-spaced.

Star Trek was pretty good, but I always liked the old series because it was about exploring, not action and drama. I know that if the movie were like that people would get bored, but I hope it doesn't become a trend to make Star Trek like that 100% of the time. If they ever make a TV show based off it, I hope they explore brave new worlds and go where no man has gone before, as opposed to being a Battlestar Galactica clone or something.

Well, with the exception of Encounter at Farpoint all the series pilots were more focused on an action plot than exploring. Now that the new alt timeline is established, there should be a lot more room for exploration of the universe in the next movie.
And hopefully Klingons as well.

Just saw Star Trek in Imax.

It was THAT good.

This movie was a degree of magnitude better than I expected.

I really want to watch Star Trek. I like the show, but haven't been able to get into it, though I know I don't need the reference.

It seems like there are gonna be A LOT of really good movies this summer. yay! I'm excited. Year One looks hilarious, I'm making it a point to watch that, and Up, and maybe Terminator... staying away from X-Men, I've seen the graphic xD

@Graham Aker: OMEDETOU~ :D you went on a date!! I'm sorry if I'm making it seem you've never been on one, but I know you over the internet, so you can't blame me for wanting to crongratulate you xD I've been on A date, and then the guy sent me a high message that he couldn't take back >.> I don't attract the right people...

I really liked how they used time travel in the Star Trek movie.

I mean, if you have to do something cheesy and sacrifice a little bit of continuity to tell a good story, sometimes it pays off to go ahead and do it. Sure time travel is a bit cliche, but it was well worth putting up with in this case.

They did something very "Star Trek" to let them do a few things that were a bit "un-Star Trek" while still being "Star Trek".

Post by: Mike on May 23, 2009, 04:37:47 AM
I was actually thinking more about Star Trek, and yeah there are a bunch of plot holes. But who cares, it was just a bad ass movie.

It had just the amount of cheesy. And the right amount of talky. All it needed was more starship porn. Just like Transformers needed more robot ass kickings, but it looks like #2 will deliver on that.

Totally agree that Star Trek had enough action to let you forget all about plot holes and continued to suspend your disbelief.

Terminator was alright.  Awesome throwback lines and such, but the action scenes weren't as awesome as Star Trek, which I had to compare it to, having seen Star Trek in IMAX just the night before.

I was satisfied with the third Terminator movie, "Salvation". If they tried to be corny, rather than take the franchise seriously, I'd have to deny any and all claims to the existence of such a film.

Very well executed, now to see how they go with the inevitable sequel to a sequel to a sequel.

Star Trek was indeed amazing. I saw it opening weekend. The red shirt after they get on the Enterprise that says the line "I'm ready to kick some ass!"...I stood up in the theater, pointed at the screen and yelled "RED SHIRT!"

They made this movie in the only way they really could, by having an alternate universe that is linked to the actual universe we all know by a small thread that is very bright orange and hard to miss...and says "Leonard Nemoy" in bright blue on it.

And gotta love the classic McCoy "Dammit Jim I'm a doctor not a..." line.

I finally saw Wall-E last night. It was rather enjoyable on a "sit with your little cousins or your significant other and watch a cute movie" level.

But yeah, I would totally go see Star Trek in theaters again.

X Men Origins: Wolverine

Even bigger surprise was on a date. Oh snap!

Graham, you just took a step up in awesomage. Well done...


See, now everyone knows why I didn't want to "discuss" Star Trek... and for those that didn't like it, remember it's also a very open reboot (even considering it's already anything-can-happen sci-fi)...

I missed the usual "group outing" to see Terminator Salvation (midnight showing ending at 2:00 + and me and Mrs. N. having to catch a 6:30 AM flight = the sleep math just didn't work out). So, I watched T3 on DVD this last Tuesday (didn't see it yet), and saw Salvation last night.

T3 was decent sci-fi action, and an adequate bridge to Judgement Day. No big character development for John, but a little more insight into how Terminators (especially t-8xx) think, and how much they are ruled by their programming.

Salvation was a little bit of Asimov-esque robot philosophy slammed down into the trenches of post-Judgement Day Earth. Some great tributes to the other movies, good characters, and good character/story development. I'm also glad that I watched T3 first (one of the "group" said it didn't matter - however, I think T3 ties in well).

I guess the next "group outing" is GIJoe...

Nope it was for Transformers 2, this morning at 12:00AM in IMAX. Good movie. I'm still recovering... Once again, I won't ruin your experience by mentioning movie details (although IMAX, even on a "small" IMAX screen, is awesome). I will say that IMAX or not, most Transformer fans will be pleased.

For some reason, I thought GIJoe would be out before Transformers 2 (GIJoe in June, Transformers in July). However, Transformers 2 is the movie out in June (be it end of June), and GIJoe doesn't come out until August. (I should consult a release calendar more often.)

GIJoe actually looks really good xDD

I saw Year One. It was really funny, but it wasn't anything extraordinary. If Jack Black hadn't been in it, I think it would have been a lot less predictable. I did like it though, overall. Cera's character was great. He almost canceled out the predictable Blackness... >.>

I finally saw Bedtime Stories last night... So I guess I'm not that out of touch...at least not too preoccupied.

As for the movie, it's Disney, so expect "clean" (although I like Adam's roundabout way of referring to a girl who "gets around"). However, it still had plenty of Adam Sandlery goodness... (Who knew he could do "family friendly"?) Yes, although clean, all the other stuff that makes his movies good was indeed in there... I liked it.

OK, now I've got to see your usual Adam Sandler movie, so I guess it's on to "You Don't Mess with the Zohan"...

Mrs. Negotiator got to pick last night, so it was "Made of Honor"... As far as "relationship" movies go, it's better than your usual fare - not quite as good as "The Wedding Singer" or "Hitched". Sort of in the realm of "13 going on 30" (i.e. tolerable, funny at times)...

In return, she said that she wants to watch the much-maligned first Transformers film. OK, that's fair...


Update 8/4/2009: Man, I'm still the most recent post? I'd rather not double post - I'll just update...
We watched TF 1 last week. Mrs. Negotiator started dozing off about halfway through it. I don't think she gave it a chance... I mean, even after two TF movies, I'm not 100% on the Bay bandwagon, but I found things to like in TF 1 & 2 (Sam's parents nonwithstanding).

We rented "Yes Man" last week. Great movie...

Will write back shortly...

UPDATE: Sorry, I needed to leave for the theater shortly after I posted, so I wouldn't miss the show. It was a free Admit Two pass given out by a local comic book store. OK, on to the movie:

You know by now that I hate to give away anything significant about films, and thus potentially ruin someone's movie experience. So I will keep it short and sweet, and quite vague... I had some issues with a few of the special effects, but overall I think I was just served a healthy serving of awesomage, with a hint of humor (just a hint, just enough). Also, for the lactose-intolerant folks out there, I didn't detect any cheese in this one... 8)

On a side note, I did see the Avatar: T.L.A. trailer, as done by M. Night Shamalan. I think it could potentially be OK, as I could not see this particular trailer "having all the good scenes"...

I've been "catching up" on my movie watching:

From the library:
Big Mama's House...2?!? - Oops, we never saw the 1st one... Oh well, at least we got to try out our laptop's DVD feature (Oooooo... Widescreen... Very nice...) The movie was OK, too, although our earphones weren't working well on the plane.
Knocked Up - Messed up and funny. I loved it...

from our rental subscription:
The Bucket List (2nd viewing) - Good movie, for both guys and gals... Mostly funny, even considering the subject matter...
Paul Blart: Mall Cop - Boy have critics panned this film. I don't know if it's because it's a tried and true Happy Madison film (with a Happy Madison cast), or something else. However, I really liked this movie. So it's got some silly stuff, so what? That doesn't hurt a film in my eyes. If you're not looking for great drama, this one's OK...

Transformers 2

I was thinking "well it can't be that bad can it?".

I was wrong. :(

Yeah, TF2 was no masterpiece... Sometimes better than TF1, sometimes worse... I still consider it an OK movie for it's good scenes (slightly more good than bad scenes). However, I still don't like how they portray "Mr. & Mrs. Sparkplug", and even I, mediocre writer that I am, could have written some scenes/dialog better... It would help alot if they studied the back story more...

Finally got to catch up on a few older movies:

"Meet Dave" (Eddy Murphy) - Good movie. Seemed like MIB crossed with Galaxy Quest, with a little Honey I Shrunk the Kids (just a little, though). Very slickly done. Humor, but not alot of over-the-top stuff. Short (90 minutes), but entertaining.

"Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" (Johnny Depp) -  I really liked this film. Great character portrayals, very subtle special effects, great attention to the details of the original story, and tributes to the first film. I also like how they tell about Wonka's childhood. However, I still like the 1st movie (especially when Wilder calmly says "Wait. Stop. Don't.", instead of yelling "Wait! Stop! Don't!" when the bad kids choose to put themselves in harms way). I guess I like them equally...

"Orange County" - Good film. Kind of weird at times, but a good film.

I fuckin missed out on the 3D Imax experience, but I could imagine how epic it must have looked.

Story was predictable but well executed, I thought. Gorgeous to look at. The movie was like Deviantart on a good day, come to life.

Okay Char, I noticed two plot holes. Tell me if they bother you:

1) When Sully first got separated from the science team. Don't they have tracking devices? Why don't expensive Avatar bodies have those attached?

2) When the heroes were making their escape in the gunship. I would assume that the main human base, a military base, would have some kind of anti-aircraft system, which would have shot them down.

#1. Oh yeah. I was wondering about that myself. Or why it seemed to take so long for them to go "Where's the Avatar?" They were freaking out saying he'd die, but if they were that worried, they would've just yanked him.

#2. You'd think, especially considering the air squadron of birds that they had to fight against anyway.

I'd like to make a note that Sigourney Weaver looked damn good as an avatar.

I saw Avatar yesterday. It was one of the worst movies I've seen in my life. That's what happens when thousands of talented artists are forced to work for an uncreative writer/director. The guys in charge just had no self control. It was like "This will be the biggest scene!... but make this next scene even more impressive!!! No... MORE IMPRESSIVE!!!! MAKE EVERYTHING GLOW ALL THE TIME!!!!"  It's not the effects I had a problem with (I do 3D modeling and rigging myself), but it was used so irresponsibly. I felt like I was watching a one-billion dollar Geocities page. Also... the story sucked. Story is more important than effects. It's what gives them their zing.


I saw Daybreakers too. That movie I liked. It was like a high budget SciFi original. Total B-movie.

Some otaku blogger named Darkmirage suggested that the glowy effects were an attempt to show the Na'vi night vision. Then it might make sense for footsteps to make glow spots, or for many things to glow, due to the heat signatures they leave behind. But yeah, without an explanation, it all seems like pointless flair.

The story wasn't bad in itself, just predictable. I do think the characters were rather flat, though. Jake Sully is the only name I remember. Sigourney Weaver was the only character I liked.

If you a gourmand of battles, then yes. I think the battles are almost perfect.

If you're the artistic type, then also yes, because it's very nice to drink in all the visuals. The movie reminded me of good DeviantArt come to life.

Most importantly, though, you'll understand all the stupid in-jokes that will pop up over the next few years. Or to put it another way, you won't be woefully behind the times as you were with Terminator. :-P

I SORT OF thought it was, but then again I'd never seen a 3d movie.

If I'd watched it in...well. Regular format, I'm pretty sure I'd have loathed it.

As it is...I really can't seperate the movie from its effects, because without the effects theres really not a hell of alot there.

But if you have three hours to kill and a 3d showing (I can only speak for the real-d, or whatever its called, one) then...sure, go for it.

edit: Also if you've just seen Terminator and then see avatar? You'll definately be going "What the hell happened to James Cameron"

The Story of Ricky.

My friend George burned me a copy of this classic example of grade Z cheese. The violence and gore are so over the top it's laugh out load funny, yet the gore is also poorly done. For example, when one of the gang leaders in the is beating up some old dude and Ricky comes in to stop it, he trips him and he falls on his hail board face first, well, at least his cheaply made dummy does.

Was it the real3d version or..I know theres a couple of 3d projection modes (if they gave you black framed glasses when you went in, its the real3d one)

Like I've said to everybody who asked me about it, "If you see it, either see the 3d version or don't bother" (apparently theres a 2d version). The visuals are just insane, I totally get how and why this took cameron so long to make. Everything else is...lackluster, and I'm probably being nice.

Why its nominated for anything but the technical achievement award I don't know. (It deserves the HELL out of that though, cause goddamn)

Quote

This honestly was probably the most genuinely entertaining movie I've seen in the past year if not longer, and I'm fully confident the guy who played the nazi will win best supporting actor, but if the movie itself somehow got best picture I'd be overjoyed.

Whats funny is kill bill part 2 and death proof had me going "Eh..maybe tarantino peaked, or maybe I just don't like his stuff as much anymore". This totally and competely makes up for those and then some.

Hello again,

IMAX-3D was only $1 more, but I ended up seeing Avatar in regular 3D. I thought the effects were good but not because of the 3D... Yeah, the Colonel did have a "Duke" kind of personality... How about the battle mechs? The HUGE bayonets on the mech guns were a nice touch, along with the realistic controls (the mechs imitate all the pilot's gestures). I thought the "unobtainium" was great under-the-radar sarcasm. I liked the detailed look at Na'vi culture. However, because of the fanaticism/backlash regarding this picture (especially around Oscar time), I had to balance my opinion by stating that even though I dug the picture, the Old Negotiator won't be doing any Na'vi cosplay. M'kay? Also, I can't see why this film should clean up at the Oscars, either, but it probably will.

As far as Terminator goes, have seen the 3rd and 4th movies, and thought they were cool.

Rented "Benjamin Button" and thought it was "cool", rented "Funny People" and thought it was "just OK", and rented "The Hangover" and thought it was "awesome!"

Broke out Transformers ROTF again, to watch for "Easter eggs". It's still a "good" movie in my book, even if I want to punch Michael Bay right in the face every time I see the Autobot Twins -- and if anyone were to communicate via spliced broadcast audio, wouldn't it be Blaster?

P.S. ...and yes Inglorious Basterds looks like something I should check out...

The mechs were awesomely bad ass. I liked how they actually had a use as loaders, too. Kind of like they decided "hey, we have these big robot loader things, the Na'vi can't do much to them, let's give them huge machine guns!"

And the unobtanium, yeah. The first time they said it I was like "they actually named the magic material Unobtanium?" I couldn't decide if it was awesomely geeky, or they were just hoping nobody in the audience knew anything about engineering.

Yeah, I heard the conflict all comes down to one massive epic battle. Sounds kind of disappointing; I expect a story in Wonderland to resolve itself in a more cerebral fashion.

That is one fucking demented movie. I'm glad I didn't take my little sis to see it. She'd have nightmares for weeks, I however did enjoy it. Anyone else notice all of Tim Burton's films end with a loop hole, and after the credits role you can see some extra stuff. Best example is a nightmare before Christmas. apparently Jack had four kids with Sally. I've never watched till the end of the credits, so I have no idea if it's true though.

Green Zone

I never read the book it's based on (I think it's called "Imperial life in the emerald city"? I remember seeing an interview with the author on the daily show and thinking "Huh sounds neat"), so how closely it hewed to the book I have no clue

...Probably not much, main character and some CIA guy seem to just go off and do their own thing through half of it. I'm pretty sure the book was more about the downright comical ineptitude of the coalition provisional authority/Paul Bremmer dropping the brown acid and refusing to use the republican guard in the stabilization.

Having said this, I liked it. It sorta pares everything down into a political thriller/action movie context but it worked pretty well.

Quote
The mechs were awesomely bad ass

Maybe it's just me, but all I could think of when it got to that was if they took the power-loader from the ending of aliens and put guns on it.

In fact all throughout the film, I kept half-expecting to see some little easter egg weyland-yutani logo on one of the aircraft or something (cause..yeah, "malevolent corporatized military force seeks supertechnology/weapon from alien civilization". It seemed like a tiny wink to the audience of "Hey where have you seen that before" was coming.)

Quote
So does that make me a bad person for wanting one of those twin-rotor helicopter things?

No, but then again I found the whole na'vi/linking into organic structures/mass-conciousness thing mildly disturbing because on some weird visual level it reminded me of this horror manga I shouldn't have read at 3:40 am. (Uzumaki, to be specific. I really can't explain why or how I made that comparison, but I did and for a moment just felt real squeamish)

Quote
Best example is a nightmare before Christmas.

He didn't direct this. I'm not even sure he completely wrote the script (think it was adapted off a vague outline he produced? Not sure)

Then again I'm not a terribly huge fan so I'm probably just pointing it out cause..he doesn't deserve 110% credit for that one

It most definitely was. It gripped me with visceral suspence, fear and sadness. It comesat you from every angle. Absolutely gorgeous to look at, too.

Location: A large dark theater in a small town...
Time: Last night, at almost midnight.


Three moviegoers walk in the theater, two with "Movie Money" certificates. The cashier presented the tickets. Concessions are bought, and our trio heads back to their seats...

Shortly after, the lights dim, and the previews appear: Prince of Persia...OK, a J.J. Abrams teaser...so-so, and Avatar: The Last Airbender...Cool.

Then the words appeared: IRON MAN 2. Awesomeness ensued... 8)


I am proud to say that I was part of that trio, and one of the holders of "Movie Money", which means my ticket cost $0 (although I gave back $4 for the Twizzlers, but hey). I got said certificate with a CD for a band named after electricity from a store named after a bullseye. Great little "field trip"...

Iron Man 2, as well! I was drunk the entire time (as in tradition to when I saw the first one), but it was completely amazing. I may not like RDJ all that much, but he plays a good Tony Stark. I also have the biggest crush on Pepper Potts.

As for the JJ Abrams trailer, I'm totally hoping (from what I've heard about the movie and seen on Fringe...) it's going to be Parasite Eve. ;)

Avengers lineups change all the time. They can put just about any character they want on the team. I think with a big budget movie they'll play it safe and just do the guys you mentioned plus Nick Fury, Black Widow, and maybe one other random guy to mix it up (Hawkeye would rule).

This Evening: The Karate Kid, Part 2

New Karate Kid really should have been titled "The Kung Fu Kid". Despite that, about half the scenes were verbatim from the original. Jackie Chan was pretty awesome, though.

Took in a comedy - "Big Mama's House". Through some mixup, we saw the 2nd movie out of order. Now I can't remember what happened in the 2nd. Probably because Mrs. Negotiator and I were watching it on a laptop, on a plane, and next to a screaming baby. It was OK... Hey, now I remember, we also saw "Year One" around the same time, and that was cool.

I rescued "Real Genius" from the bargain bin shortly after the holidays.

I watched the first Bluray of Basilisk.

Got say, for all the hype this show got when it was being broadcast in Japan and it's subsequent release over here...I'm unimpressed. I remember a friend of mind saying that it was so violent it made Berserk look like a picnic. Um yeah, no. Add that to the fact that the dub is larely typical of Funimation (few decent performances, but mostly wooden, and dull threw out), although I did like Troy Baker, and Laura Baily as the two leads, they do a fantastic job. I need to finish watching the rest of the show, but it's gonna be rough.

No, it's a much more personal journey than I recall Paprika being. They may share a similar premise, but the execution of each is quite different. However, it has been some time since I last watched Paprika.

Tim Burton gives me nightmares too

But the nightmares are all, there he is getting a greenlight from the studio and I keep screaming "BUT WHY, WHY, HE PEAKED WITH NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, AND I GUESS ED WOOD. HE JUST KEEPS HITTING THE SAME EXACT CLICHED NOTES"

But no matter how loud I yell, they can never hear.

(Coraline was not a Tim Burton movie, it was Henry Selick who wrote/directed, Burton produced it probably cause Selick also directed nightmare)

...Actually not to hijack this thread on this tangent, but come to think of it I'm like 99% sure Burton only provided the outline for nightmare before christmas, then somebody else wrote it.

Hetalia episodes 1-25

So, I finally heard the massive popular Hetalia Dub. I've heard it called "edgy!" and a "Riot.

Well, it's neither. It's more or less a cheap South Park knock off. Unlike SP, with it's award winning satire, the Hetalia dub is a huge mish-mash of forced edgy jokes i.e Holocaust jokes, and the other ones are equally lame jokes based on said country i.e German makes jokes about Mein Kampf, and Japan talk "Rike dis in folced unfunny engrish." Given Funimation habit of putting out mediocre dubs overall, it's safe to say comedy is not a strong point of theirs. Then again, this is the same company that turned Sgt. Frog into a Family Guy style show.

I liked trinity blood because when the 12 year old pope showed up, I referred to him as "pontifex minimus" which I thought was good wordplay even though I'm sure the latins probably incorrect

And by "liked" I mean...the minute or so I was amused with coming up with that nickname was fun. Then the rest of it sucked and for some reason there was like a terminator fighting vampires (and it was not half as good as this sounds)

By the end of Trinity Blood, Gunslinger was perhaps the only cool thing left. Because the final fight sucked so damn hard.

If they had given Gunslinger more scenes and character development-- and improved his aim-- he could have been the best thing on the show. Of course, this did not happen, and thusly are we inundated with numerous episodes of bizarre and halfhearted fail.

Godspeed, Tres-shimpu-sama. Long may you "pojitibu".

Sharp: If you read the official article, the Pope was 18. Which is somehow even funnier.

And episode 7: "Never Land" was so fucked up I fell out of my chair. So awesome.

Recently viewed: First episode of Ergo Proxy.

...someone will tell me who originally compared this to Big O, because I am going to tie them up and apply ludicrous amounts of fuzzy blue eyeliner to their hapless countenance.

This, however, has no bearing on my plans to continue watching the show later tonight.

edit: watched two more eps of EP. My brain feels like its roiling in a bed of barbed wire and industrial-strength glue. If I marinate in acetylene and light myself on fire, it still won't purge me of what I've seen. I must have more.

I greatly enjoyed Scott Pilgrim.  I don't understand the backlash against it or why everyone is associating it with hipsters, but maybe I'm misunderstanding what exactly a hipster is?  Whatever.  It was a fun movie, and I only read the comic in conjunction with seeing the movie, so I didn't really have any preconceived ideas about how well the actors fit the roles.  I thought the visuals were creative, the soundtrack was fun, and overall it was a really enjoyable movie watching experience for me.  I intend to see it again.

Scott Pilgrim V.S The Word.
Pilgrim are coming. Hide the religious bookses ohnoes.

I think the biggest fail of this film is the hackneyed attempt by westerners to capitalize on the success of Japanese cultural flair. Oh, sure. Now, if one simply likes anime and video games, and wishes to make public of this-- even in a movie!-- that's just fine. There's no problem with that.

But monkey see, monkey do. Monkey can't help himself. Monkey has issues. Monkey has pathological need to rip off what monkey see so monkey can do it too, only in a cruder and rather pathetic watered-down interpretation which passes for an equal of the original only to the feeblest of monkey minds.

Monkey must pay for his sins. Monkey must die.

If you only saw part of 3, you didn't miss much. Trust me. The first one is probably the best.

But if it's emotionless robot blazing gun action you want, the original Terminator more than suffices.

Choppy 1980's stop-motion robotics FTW.

Speaking of this, I finally saw terminator 4 on t.v the other day.

I was initially reluctant but..nah that was good. Ever since I first rented terminator a while back, I kept thinking "Oh wouldn't it be cool if that future-war scene in the beginning was a whole movie?"

It was, and it was neat. Why t3 didn't go that route I'll never know, cause after T2 that was the only logical place to take it.

(Also it was the last movie stan winston worked on. CGI was of course involved, but in the good way where its used when necessary. That and Silent Hill are probably the last two movies that will only use CGI to enhance physical effects)

Who's abridged series did you watch Randolf? There are 2 different abridged series, one by studio36x and one buy some guy I can't remember the name of. The former is funnier and makes more sense.

Favorite quote from studio36x series, Roger saying "Holy shit, this broads a robot? How the hell'd I miss that". First 5 minutes of episode one.

I need to watch the rest of the series, seeing as I never finished it.

The one I was watching was the one by a guy called SXAbridged, which was... really not good. I think the one you meant was studio24U (I searched for "studio36x" and got nothing, but the studio24U episode 1 had almost that same line you mentioned, so I guess that's the right one).

Honestly, beyond LittleKuriboh's Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged, I haven't yet found an abridged series I liked. Most are just too crass and too low-quality to be enjoyed.

(Seriously. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart having an orgasm in SXAbridged's Act 4... do not want. Like, at all. Ever.)

So I've been watching the code geass series, S1, and I'm finally at the point of saying WTF just happened!?

Seriously, this started out great and then turned into a war, must end all previous holds on humanity, anime series. Where is this going? I only have 2 episodes left, but I'm still lost.

Isn't this the show where theres a bunch of product placement for Pizza Hut
Yup. The Japanese version was sponsored by Pizza Hut. But they refused to sponsor the English version.

This was more of a trade: Looney Tunes Golden Collection Vol. 1 (for Looney Tunes Spotlight Vol. 2...).

I also have a 3GP and WMV of "Falling Hare" from YouTube. (I got a legit copy, too.) Good thing, because it wasn't in the Golden Collection until Vol. 3, and not Spotlight Collection until Vol.7... It's the gremlin one... Nuff said...

Just watched: Batman: The Animated Series

Awesome cartoon... Sure the HARDAC arc was pure nightmare fuel for kiddies, but I'm still questioning why they replaced it with their tamer Batman & Robin
series. I mean it's FOX - aren't they supposed to be bolder than other networks (Married with Children, 24, X-Files, Family Guy, The Simpsons, In Living Color, MADtv)?!? WB's "The Batman" (rerunning on Boomerang) comes close to "Animated", but I still prefer the no-excuses approach of "Animated".

Six consecutive episodes of Big O: The Abridged Series.

I hate myself so much right now.

Seriously. Olympian fail.

Actually, I'm intrigued. I may have to check this out... I've seen a really bad fandub Transformers Beast Wars Neo (Optimus Primal's voice actor meerly made his voice deeper, and talked into his closed hands), so I might be able to tolerate an abridged Big O.


...of course you realize, this   means   war!

Our last NetFlix Disc was "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" live-action movie. Figures, the last one would be scratched badly... So, onto the Internet... It was a little grainy, but intelligible enough to "get" everything. Awesome movie. I mean the animated version was cool, too, but seeing everything "fleshed out" (though alot is CGI) was awesome to see.

Update 12/13/2010: I would've had a new post for the Game On! thread, but my DS went dead. (Darnit!) So, it went on the charger, I got on the laptop, found a bootleg, and now I can post here...  :) I watched the first 5 episodes of Transformers Prime (Darkness Rising, Parts 1-5)... Y'know, I agreed with one of the commenters - in some aspects, it's better than the films. The Peter Culllen/Frank Welker exchanges were awesome! Oh, and Steven Blum voices Starscream... Also, Ernie Hudson & Markie Post voice characters...

Update 12/16/2010: Wow... It's quiet here... Oh well... Tuesday, I put on Real Genius (actually legit, $5 bin - not to brag or anything) for me and Mrs. N. She was napping, and I thought I'd play a funny movie on the laptop. Not really her cup of tea, though, but I figured why waste an opportunity, and watched the rest. Good movie. Preceeded Revenge of the Nerds, but seems less "dated", more satirical, and more low key. So it's cooler and funnier in my opinion.

Mitch: What are you doing?
Chris Knight: Self-realization. I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"

Jordan: Are you going to take me home to meet your parents?
Mitch: No.
Jordan: Why? Are you ashamed of me?                                              
Mitch: No, them.
Jordan: Oh.

Last night, I stopped over a buddy's house to watch the original TRON (may be bootleg - he has many in his collection). I'll be checking out the new TRON flick on Saturday...

Update 12/20/2010: TRON Legacy was awesome. Good story, good characters, a few homages to the old film, and a mostly unpredictable plot. Plus, enough Daft Punk to clog an I/O channel (is Baker St. Irregular still checking in?). 3-D... Nah! Saw it 2-D, and it still rocked...

Post by: Char Aznable on December 22, 2010, 07:16:42 AM
I too bought Real Genius for $5. Watch it all the time. Can pull many quotes from it.

Just got home from the new TRON movie. Saw it in 3D IMAX, which was a little dizzying at first. But the movie...it made me happy...and then there was Daft Punk...but...there are still notes left untouched...like TRON changing colors in the end...and other stuff I'll not mention right now...oh, and Olivia Wilde looking all nice and sexy in her skin tight outfit...

No, actually it didn't suck at all.  Just some loose ends...The special effects were cool, but downplayed. The only effect I didn't like was the dust clouds...Will say more later. Yeah, I wondered about TRON, too, but I think the color change is significant. Dillinger's son is also tough to figure out, but I suspect the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. There are many ways to interpret the ending. As far as music, there are like 20+ tracks on the soundtrack, intercut between symphony and Daft Punk, so you avoid DP's sometimes sonic monotony. I have to stress, there's really alot of unpredictability, and alot of stuff they didn't do the easy way.

So pretty much, Avatar, except with Olivia Wilde in tight clothing instead of weird blue cat-people.

Nah, more like part Terminator/part Escape to Witch Mountain/part Short Circuit/part Mummy and Mummy Returns, with a dash of The Matrix, a dash of Wargames (or an Asimov work), and a pinch of Hackers. You write "Olivia Wilde in tight clothing" as if it's an everyday occurrence for you. Is it an everyday occurence? If so, good job, man. Otherwise, please, more emphasis, man!  8) If you're talking "Avatar" as in "The Last Airbender", there was genocide similar to that. However, neither Quorra or Sam are THE savior of TRON's world. There is no Kwisats Haderach here and no Chosen One. Even "the creator" of this world finds something surprising. There are no easy winners in a fight, and no grand battles. Cameron's "Avatar" was overhyped, and pretty much a sci-fi/mystical "Dances with Wolves". This movie was nothing like that...

Anybody seen Natural Born Killers?

A script that Tarantino sold to Oliver Stone, from before Tarantino had earned enough reputation and money to do as he pleased. It's a terrifically violent, highly stylized, and high-concept social commentary movie that I'm sure most of the guys here would both love and understand. From 1993, around the time of the OJ trial.

Star Actors: Robert Downey Junior, Tommy Lee Jones, Rodney Dangerfield, to name a few.

I was sort of on the fence about Natural Born Killers...and that's after seeing Point Break (most of it), Oceans 11, and all the Robocop movies (even direct-to-video ones).

Call of Cthulhu.

A silent film that looks like its from the '30s, but was released in 2005. It's available on hulu and is really good

Also the production teams apparently making another one, but made to resemble something from the '40s or '50s (or the titles on the trailer all looked like they'd be of that era)

Holy hell, Sharp, is this for real? Because if it is, it'll finally give me a reason to go back to Hulu again.

I haven't watched anything on there since I finished Ergo Proxy, and that was like, months ago. Should probably go see a few eps of the old Outer Limits while I'm at it.

I may have to check out Call of Cthulhu... Wait, both this movie and Ergo Proxy are on Hulu?!? I may go check out some Ergo Proxy as well... Do they have old Twilight Zone as well as old Outer Limits?

I was bored, and couldn't think of anything to watch, so I Youtubed the "Bit" bit from the original TRON. Funny, very Disney-like scene...

Yuko, just wondering if you meant sci-fi masterpiece, as in your opinion (of course, several of us share that opinion...), or Sci-Fi masterpiece, as in the Sci-Fi Channel Miniseries "Dune". If you meant the miniseries, then yeah, it didn't really have alot of action. To see an "action" version of Dune (albeit less accurate, due to the weirding modules and other liberties taken with the story...) I would say see the 1984 film. Action, with FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper, Sting, and Captain Picard. How about that?


Title: Re: That Film You Bootlegged Recently, What Is It?
Post by: Randolf on December 29, 2010, 07:10:03 PM
As far as I know, the old Twilight Zone should be on there as well; I'm just about certain I saw it while I was browsing the old sci-fi listings, though I didn't watch any (yet). They've also got the new Outer Limits, though I can't say I'm a fan, personally (haven't really given it much of a chance, looked okayish from the one ep or so I saw a few years back).

And yeah, for what it's worth, they've got Ergo Proxy. Trinity Blood, too, which I've since seen all the way through. I think you'll need to register an account first, then both anime have a mature filter on them for guests (having an account let's you change that).

Finally saw it.

like TRON changing colors in the end...and other stuff I'll not mention right now...oh, and Olivia Wilde looking all nice and sexy in her skin tight outfit...

I think that was just to show his heart of gold shining through in the end... cuz Tron is just such a good guy and all, deep down inside.

Or... SEQUEL!!!!

The movie's strength was showing the exotic and outrageous computer society. Once it got into the formula epic, I got bored. It was definitely hyper-cool and gorgeous. Awesome soundtrack.

Here's something I noticed: Olivia Wilde was compared to a dog, or a pet in general. Which is good in the interest of hawtness, but not so much for my modern sensibilities.

Also the whole dynamic between CLU/TRON/Daddy Flynn could have made for some interesting interactions, but all that took place in a flashback, mostly in words, until one conversation at the very end. How lame!

So what is the fate of the Net? Was it returned to primordial flatness?

They never got to the Net. The Grid in the basement of Flynn's was isolated from the rest of the world.

My friends and I all seemed to agree on Disney keeping it open for a sequel. After all, TRON didn't get much screen-time.

The Grid
That's right. Sorry for the slip-up.

Open-ended, although, since Flynn keeps a flash drive of the Grid around his neck, it suggests that at least something remains worth saving. That's for the TV series to answer! lol.

The whole selling point of Jule & Julia is simply watching Streep be ridiculous. F*ck the story.

Yeah, I didn't want to drop any big spoilers about TRON, so I didn't mention the flash drive. I think Sam "froze" everything in the Grid, and a sequel is definitely plausible.

Yeah, but he got better, though.

Cool. Yeah, I agree they're expensive. We won $9 bucks in M&M movie cash (three of four tries), so that helped a little.

We finally rented Grownups over Memorial Day weekend. I tried to also rent The Last Airbender, but all the DVD's were out, and I can't yet rent Blu-Rays. Grownups was an OK film. All the characters were interesting, and it had a good story. We also used $6 M&M bucks to see the Hangover Pt.2. Eh, it had some funny stuff, but I think it was a little over the top this time. I mostly remember the shocking scenes over the funny ones.

I watched AI: Artificial Intelligence (is there an echo in here?) online this Thursday night. OK, why did they describe this as a fairy tale? Maybe it was partly-based on a fairy tale, but I found it to be a long, pretty, but sad film. Also, the ending was OK, but not so "happily ever after"... Fortunately, I then went on a late night field trip the next night to see the new X-Men movie. Supposedly, there are 2 inconsistencies, but I'll need to review the 3 old ones to recognize them. At least it cheered me up from AI.

Traditional fairy tales aren't the happy stories we have now-a-days. I think the grandmother is eaten (not swallowed), and Red Riding Hood killed in the original version of "Little Red Riding Hood."

Yeah, my brother-in-law was trying to explain the movie order, too. Not like it really matters, I've only seen the first so far.

Traditional fairy tales aren't the happy stories we have now-a-days. I think the grandmother is eaten (not swallowed), and Red Riding Hood killed in the original version of "Little Red Riding Hood."

If I recall correctly, yeah, the woodsman is the only survivor, but he still kills the wolf.

Yeah most of them seemingly were "Whats a good way to make a cautionary fable for children? Tell them they'll get brutally slain by a woodland beast if they get out of line."

Granted, they were the original "urban legends", but I don't expect average people to know that. Therefore, when a movie is hyped to the mainstream as AI was, I would assume they were talking about the "happy ending fairy tales" from most people's childhood. I guess as a cautionary story to the audience though ("what we shouldn't do..."), it works.

This ring of mine glows with an AWESOME POWER! Oh wait...that's not the oath...

Yes, I saw it... Green Lantern! However, not until after seeing Bridesmaids (OK movie) with Mrs. Negotiator... Kind of a strange 2-movie marathon after mid-day doctor appointments which ran over. However, Mrs. N and I had planned our movie date before I heard about the free screening passes.

Yeah, GL was free, and Bridesmaids was discounted, which was good anyhow, but especially good since I needed to buy dinner in the theater. Looking online, Bridemaids was showing 2:55 PM (which we missed) & 5:10 PM at the nearest theater. Being 2 hrs, it looked like I would miss GL, since one doesn't usually get into a free 7:30 PM showing by entering the line at 7:10 PM. Then we got there early...and there was a 4:25 PM showing?!? Awesome! I still barely found a seat at 6:25 PM (we wisely drove separately, so she could go home - she isn't really a GL fan). I saw it though, and they had it in 3-D, which...was...OK, it worked for this one.

Hey, I almost forgot - last Sunday my niece wanted to see Star Wars: A New Hope, so my brother-in-law (not her dad, her uncle) brought it. She behaved the whole visit, and got a SW figure from my sister and BoL (her aunt and uncle). However, she needed to brush her teeth, so I promised a suprise if she did. It was - The Millenium Falcon. My BoL knew about my miniature Falcon,  but not about the large, figure-holding one. She brushed her teeth, then both neice and uncle were utterly floored...

I don't know. Isn't the animatrix more of a sequel or off shot to the series?


Watched Falling skies last night. It's a new sci-fi show about aliens invading and only taking the kids captive. Love it.

I think only one of the stories was directly related to the events of the films, and the two-part "Second Renaissance" gave some backstory about the war between man and machine. They're all shorts, though...

X-Men first class. I loved it. And my mom had free tickets, and she liked it. My mom didn't think she would like a comic book turned into a movie. She thought it would be too cartoony. But she liked it. So I've convinced her to go to the eventual squeal.

Yesterday at 9PM, I went on my next movie "field trip"...to see Transformer's: Dark of the Moon. Sadly, only 6 of us could make it to this showing. Yes...I did like it. No, I won't talk about it...yet...  8) Have a good night guys...

New Transformers movie. It has Leonard Nimoy. This made me happy.
Harry Potter. Not bad. The book epilogue was unnecessary and...only done okay.
Tron. The original.
Tron Legacy.

I got both Tron movies for my birthday...which is tomorrow, but my grandmother is going out of town, so I got my present from her yesterday.

Captain America.

Good times, good times. Probably the best super hero movie thus far. Plus it also has this:

Was it really good? Marvel movies tend to be, but since Disney bought them out I'm a little suspicious.

Anyway Princess Bride. I kept hearing people make references to it and it seems to be a meme, so I watched it. It's actually kinda good considering it was made in the 80's and not all the linear.

I got both Tron movies for my birthday...which is tomorrow, but my grandmother is going out of town, so I got my present from her yesterday.

Yeah, I liked the Leonard Nimoy's character, as well as Alan Tudyk's character. I also liked the plot twists in this one...

Yeah, I had a couple gift cards to burn, so I got both TRON movies, too. I was surprised to not find much promotional stuff in the cases. When I bought the "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace" VHS boxed set, many moons ago, I got a booklet full of all kinds of coupons, a concept art book, and some framed movie cells. Maybe it's just because they were DVD's instead of Blu-Rays?

A couple weekends ago, I saw a good chunk of the 1st half of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, but it was during a family visit, and majority rules, so Harry wasn't on for long.

I'm 2 movies behind on my Avengers, since they came out one after the other (although I'm current on my DC, since seeing Green Lantern). Maybe I'll find Thor at the 2nd-run cinema near my house?

Anyway Princess Bride. I kept hearing people make references to it and it seems to be a meme, so I watched it. It's actually kinda good considering it was made in the 80's and not all the linear.

"My name is Inigo Montoya...You killed my father...Prepare to die..." Yeah, it's pretty much a meme. I just re-saw Real Genius on TV at a friends house (only PG, so not butchered for TV). I think it's also a meme.

In other news, I can't seem to locate my copy of Star Trek: Nemesis. My sister and my brother in law are itching to tell me about it. I saw ST: Insurrection a while ago, and thought it was just OK. ST: First Contact was better, though. I looked for Nemesis online, but no dice. I'll see if it's still rented...

Back on August 29th (sorry I don't write more often), we saw "The Help" (Ticket discount? All right!). Unfortunately, I forgot, with school in, and Mrs. Negotiator having to get up at 5:00 AM, and that usually makes her fall sleepy by about 9:00-10:00 PM most nights. So it was with the evening of the 29th... D'oh! :( So, we went and saw on Labor Day again. I didn't mind, though. It's not too girly, and except for the parts that make you sad or angry, there was some humorous stuff. Being an almost Anthropology minor (one college class short...I had to settle for Comp. Sci. major/Math minor), I also liked that the book was from the point of view of the help, and that the writer was going to be objective about what was discussed in the book. After all, one key to being a good anthropologist is not being ethnocentric.

We also got some free Blockbuster kiosk codes from some Boston Market dinners, so I rented X-Men Origins: Wolverine. (Around here, purchases after 5 PM earn codes. Yesterday, we almost earned another, but unfortunately, our order was rung up at 4:55 PM. Those are the breaks, I guess...)
Anyhow, it was a cool movie, and Ryan Reynolds' character was awesome. Though the movie took a strange turn near the end, and even though there is glaring inconsistency with X-Men: First Class, I liked it alot. We also rented Letters To Juliet for free. Italy and Amanda Seyfried? OK, I'll check it out.  :) Really though, it's cool, and since I'm Italian, I enjoyed seeing Italy, even if it's only on film.

Although it isn't really a film, per se, I did see LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace over at my brother-in-law's house, and it was cool.

Finally, I located a copy of Star Trek: Nemesis...at the local library. OK, so it's full screen instead of wide screen - I saw alot of full screen movie before I saw wide screen ones. In fact, I saw alot of VHS & movie-channel free promo movies before DVD's (mostly full screen  ;D), and I'll probably have watched several DVD's before I watch Blu-Ray's.

Post by: The Final Negotiator on September 21, 2011, 06:48:01 AM
Sorry to post this so early in the morning, and a week late, but my free time has really been limited over the last month. Plus, I find that a good nap after work helps me to keep things in balance...at least that's what I keep telling myself... I finally watched Nemesis last week. It took two nights, since I started watching it so late first night.

First Contact is no doubt the best of the Next Gen Trek films, and some would say the best movie of the franchise. I have to agree with them.

After now seeing Nemesis, and now having seen every Star Trek film made so far, I would have to agree. However, this was still a good film. Unfortunately, my previous search for an online stream of it presented one spoiler to me (sort of, I had scene vague references to it elsewhere...), but it was still very entertaining. I kind of wish some of the deleted scenes had been kept, but I enjoyed what was there. Good characters and story...

I think I've seen first contact before. Is that the one where they meet the borg?

Yes, and Zefram Cochrane, the inventor of warp drive technology, as well! Actually, it's the first time they've "met" them in a movie. they've "met" the Borg before, but, next to Picard's "Locutus" experience, this film was another poignant encounter with the Borg. Fans, Trekkies and mainstream, talk about First Contact in The Next Generation the same way they talk about The Wrath of Khan in the original cast films...

Apparently, it was a good time to see this film, as it was announced very recently about J.J. Abrams signing on for the next Star Trek sequel. Best guess is it will be released sometime in Summer 2013. Yeah, that long... I guess I'll have enough time to review the other movies. Oh well, off to bed...

He signed for it last year. It's tentative title is "Wrath of Klingons". Supposed to come out Q2 next year I think.

I saw life, because no one would pirate that shiz.


Title: Re: That Film You Bootlegged Recently, What Is It?
Post by: The Final Negotiator on October 06, 2011, 09:15:40 PM
Star Trek 2 must have been delayed because, according to Abrams on Sept. 15, this year, it's only moving ahead now. There has been some speculation about whether the upcoming GIJoe sequel will steal Star Trek's release date of Q2 next year, forcing it to come out in 2013? No, I hope not. Hopefully, this is just some grumpy fan rumors...

OK, I think it was a couple weekends ago (I probably blocked out the date, due to trauma) we rented "Land of the Lost". Y'know, we both gave it an honest chance - the previews looked OK, with Will Ferrell acting silly, but no more silly than usual. We even gave it the benefit of the doubt, and watched it all the way through. The only pros I remember is Enik now actually speaks, and the dinosaurs look more realistic - thanks to CGI and "Holly" was also cool. Other than that, I couldn't find anything else to like here. Sorry...

OK, around a week ago, our video store sent us a free rental coupon, since we haven't visited in a while. Our neighbor also got one, and was about to throw it out, but then gave it to my wife. So with "our" coupon, we rented Just Go With It, with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston pretending to be married. OK, I think a couple gags missed the mark, but for the most part OK. Now I've got until Oct. 7th to rent something on the "neighbor's" coupon, and I'm opting for "Thor", if I can find it.

Hey, free movies, it's like legal bootlegging...

Thor. It was epic... Now I've got to see Captain America...

While returning "Thor", I almost had an epic adventure myself:

I rented it with a free rental coupon after bowling on Thursday, Oct 6th. I watched it the next night, and walked upstairs to talk to my wife (about 10:30), but she was taking a nap on the couch. So, I rested on a chair. I then accidently napped myself. I woke up at 11:45...the movie was due at midnight!  :o I threw on my jacket and shoes, grabbed the DVD, and my keys, wallet, and cell phone, and zipped to the video place. It's two valleys over from our hill, and I took as many non-STOP-sign roads as possible (the route there zig-zags alot, so I usually allow extra time), ending up next to an auto parts shop in the same valley as the video store. The video store was 4 stores up and to the left... However, no lefts allowed from where I'm at. So, I did what any man would do - turned left into the auto parts store lot, parked the car there, and ran like the wind (except for a thin strip of land parallel to the 40 MPH road - I walked carefully there). I got to the store, out of breath, dropped "Thor" in the night box, and walked back to my car. I took out my cell phone (my only clock), wincing while reading the time. (I thought I would read 12:01, 12:02...) It read 11:58 PM... Whew!  :) Apparently, their clocks are synched the same, because I never got a late notice... I was very lucky - I don't and I won't make a habit of this.

On this subject my little sister very literally tried to bootleg a video, and had no idea it was illegal. So she came to ask me if I trusted the site she tried to get it from. Told her no and got to the laptop she tried that on. Luckily it redirected her to a site to download software and that's where it ended.... So my sister is tech illiterate and almost did something illegal. Gee I feel great.

But as to what I've been watching, Bleach and Naruto mainly.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. Even though the latest pop tunes sound kind of meh when made into "Chipmunk music", it was OK. (The LMFAO sounded OK, but no hamsters from the Kia Soul LMFAO/HALO Commercial. However, the Kia Soul LMFAO/HALO commercial was part of the previews, so that was cool, and rather appropriate). If you've seen the other Chipmunk movies, you'll probably like it, or if you've seen the old 80's cartoons, and wouldn't mind watching an "87-minute Chipmunk episode".

I forgot, sometime back when I rented Just Go With It, I rented Marmaduke. It was alot better than the commercials made it sound.

Also, I didn't bootleg anything, but I did borrow the Incredible Hulk from my brother-in-law before Christmas. As always, Stan Lee makes a cameo. It also makes reference to the Avengers, as many recent Marvel movies have.

Wow, not much in theaters now. Unless there's a "field trip" to the Phatom Menace in 3D, my next movie will likely be a rental...

Anyway went to an anime insomnia meeting tonight with a friend. And watched Durarara!, Revolutionary girl Utena, and Ika Masume the squid girl. Last one made me laugh so hard I thought I was going to need oxygen. At the same time I thought I was going to end up seeing hentai through the whole thing. Surprisingly none was present.

Yawn... Sorry, I'm here... I haven't gotten many opportunities to login recently, with plenty to do at home and work (no school, but I'm learning about programming new applications at work, and it includes "homework", and reviewing C++).

Hmmm, I thought the only "gross-out" stuff in underworld would be horror-type stuff. Are you talking about another type of gross-out, like gross-out humor, or just something really weird? No need to elaborate if it was too gross...

As I expected, I missed the Phantom Menace 3D "field trip". However, according to my brother-in-law, except for the Darth Maul 3D glasses, it didn't seem worth the money (not scene-wise).

I haven't checked out any anime in a while, but I'm watching subbed episodes of "Transformers: Masterforce" (27 of 43), interspersed with new episodes of "Transformers: Prime" from The Hub (which is basically "The Hasbro Channel"). Sort of an anthropology lesson via cartoons, complete with actual translations of some lines (Example: Line translated as "I'll take it to heart" was literally "it is etched into my liver"?!? Fortunately, not all translations are that weird...)

Back on topic, it's still very likely that Captain America will be the next movie I see (rental), hopefully before The Avengers hits theaters... We also got some free rental credits from our TV service, so we might see what's good on there (maybe I'll find the Captain on there?). Take care...

redbox is giving away a free rental, so my family and I will watch something Sunday. As for right now, latest thing I watched was the English version of xxxHolic. Why is Watanuki's voice so annoying in English?

I didn't think it was that annoying, but I watched in English before Japanese.

Last movie I watched would have been a rewatch of The Muppets (still hilarious). Been catching up on some of my anime DVDs (Ga-Rei-Zero, One Piece) and the latest shows airing this season (Bodacious Space Pirate, Nisemonogatari) over spring break.

I'd really like to go see The Lorax, but I don't know if I'll be able to find anyone to go with.

It's funny how things work out sometimes. Still haven't seen Captain America yet, but last week (sorry I always so post late), I found out about one cool offer using Disney DVD points - a free movie pass. My brother-in-law told me about the offer, so I let him use one of my codes (didn't seem like Mrs. Negotiator would like it), and I used another. To make a long story short, I saw John Carter for free, and no, it's not bad at all. I liked the story, I liked the characters, I liked the dialog, and I liked the action. All this, and only one obvious Disney cliche in it. Not bad.

Hey, I never mentioned it (or perhaps I blocked it out), but some time ago, a friend of mine told me about one of the worst DVD rentals he's ever scene, and then insisted we had to watch it. It was called Birdemic. It was really bad. Really, really bad... Avoid it at all costs. I couldn't even have fun tearing it apart... So many wasted minutes...

Well that sucks.
Friday I saw Captain America with my mom. it's really good and so I can recommend it.

I decided to watch Big O all over again. I started at episode 5 yesterday and have watched all the way through 16. I do not know what sleep is I swear. Also in the Japanese version of Big O Shwarzwald actually speaks German from time to time. And Dorothy is far more emotional and insulting. She calls Roger an idiot at one point, using colorful language for her, and if it weren't for the fact I was trying to be more serious about understanding spoken Japanese I would totally have missed it.

Well after watching those tonight I'll watch the episode of Once upon a time I missed Sunday.

Movies this weekend: Bits of Anchorman and most of Snatch (it was during a social for one of my orgs, so it was kind of hard to sit down and watch all the way through (Snatch is still awesome, in case anyone wasn't aware)).


Title: Re: That Film You Bootlegged Recently, What Is It?
Post by: Yuko-san on April 22, 2012, 04:12:52 AM
Have no idea what Snatch is, but I'll give it a watch.
Tried to watch something called Svengooli tonight. It's kinda like Elvira's Movie Macabre, but it makes less sense because Svengooli isn't as funny as Elvira in my honest opinion. The movie being shown was Dracula's Daughter. Not too bad.

And kinda nice news, I finished watching Big O again and I UNDERSTAND HOW IT ENDED! Maybe my understanding isn't prefect, but I figured out what all the fake Rogers and the whole metropolis book where for and why the last episode was a jumble. Remind me next weekend when all my finals are over to get back on a write a synopsis.

I suggest before next week you all read some Issac Asimov, particularly the first robot detective novel, which if memory serves is called caves of steel.

Oh yeah, I also watched some of I robot, and was like "This makes no sense". So screw you bad holly wood directors for not reading the book you base the movie on. For those of you who have seen the movie and not read the book, i robot is about a female robopsychologist telling stories of her past to a reporter. Not one of these stories is violent in the least, so where the whole "robots are gonna rise against us" thing comes in I have no idea. It more then likely comes from robots of dawn, which I haven't read yet.

Well then I definitely have to check out the subbed Big O, because even though I got some of the ending, I still felt as if there were some missing details. Of course, I'll have to balance that out with my subbed Transformers: Masterforce watching (I'm really trying to give it a chance). I'll see if I can also check out "Caves of Steel"...

It more then likely comes from robots of dawn, which I haven't read yet.

"I Robot" was based on a non-Asimov short story called "Hardwired", which was then sprinkled with some elements of Asimov (3 laws, US Robotics, Sonny, Spooner, the Dr. etc.). As a suspenseful mystery, it worked for me, but Asimov absolutely hated it.

He was insulted by Hollywood giving his story the action/violence/Hollywood blockbuster treatment (what he called "eye-sci-fi", because it's all for looks, and there's not much to contemplate). I think Bicentennial Man was made more in the spirit of Asimov... Really, I don't mind someone "toying" with an authors story/style, as long as it doesn't insult their principles. Actually, the robots rising up was in keeping with Asimov, just not the violence.

I once again had some amazingly good fortune. After my local comic book shop ran out of free "The Avengers" movie passes (May 1st sneak preview), one of my brother-in-law's co-workers found it at another branch about a half hour north. They apparently see less business, and had plenty of passes.

Slightly delayed by our drive, dinner stop, and my BIL stopping at the shop to buy a comic (no problem, it was a cool comic), we got into the 2nd LONG entrance line. We still got in (sans our cell phones - placed by the ushers in paper bags - to be retrieved after the movie), but didn't get much of the free stuff. We each got a poster, and my BIL managed to get a free pin set, but I didn't mind much because I got to see an ~$8 for free (likely more than that, since it was 3D IMAX).

I feel that it would have rocked just the same in standard non-3D format. Yuko, if your mom thought Thor was awesome, then she'll consider this movie EPIC! Good action, dialogue, and really fleshed-out characters. I just want to remind everyone (and most Marvel-fans already know this) - please don't leave the theater until the end of the movie...the very end of the movie...yes, watch all the credits, too.

Also, I did manage to see the movies in order, because my BIL lent me Captain America Monday night. What was cool was that Captain America's story was still fresh in my mind, because "The Avengers" picks up right where that movie left off. So cool...

Brave in RealD

It was more entertaining than I expected, though I think I still liked Tangled a little better.

Saw Brave with my mom not long ago. Wasn't bad, but I think I missed something plot wise.

Saw both The Dark Knight Rises (IMAX) and Total Recall this past month. DKR was really good, but references in Recall kept me from being able to judge it objectively.

Saw Serenity, the movie with Nathan Fillion in it. I have to watch firefly now, but I can never find the series.

You saw the movie before the series? Seems like a bad idea to me.

Looks like it's all on Hulu (http://www.hulu.com/firefly).

Oh, last movie I saw was a rewatch of Avengers in 3D. Going to see MIB3D tomorrow or Saturday night.
