Terminator 2 is almost over on TNT right now. Fucking incredible movie that still holds up visually. The siege at Skynet through the end, especially the chase scene, are amazing. Crazy how good the special effects are and the movie came out in 1992!
I watched the chase scene just now too. Greatness
I was shocked at how good it looked. Really great lighting and practical effects which you don't really see that much of anymore. When the truck crashes into the steel plant I was in awe.
watched moonrise kingdom. all his movies are so weird but good
The Dead Don't Scream - back to the movies with no redeeming qualities, BUT early on some excellent boobies are revealed.
Horror thriller set in what is supposed to be a slaughterhouse/sausage plant, but is actually in RL a very modern commercial laundry, much nicer than the one in Breaking Bad. The victims are supposed to be chopped up to put into 'Uncle Buddy's' sausage, but the only visible threat to them are the Uncle Buddy goons chasing them. Once they're is died, then they get put on conveyor belts, and that's the whole of the sausage making process as far as the movie's concerned.
It's pretty horrible, and the worst part of the movie is the grossly fat niece who talks while she's eating, a very disgusting habit (pretzels, I think, not people). Anyway, I'm glad I'm done with that one, except for the tits, it's just not worth it.
Bonus review from somebody on IMDB:
Im at a loss for words... this is terrible. This movie is awful, the script, the actors, the "special" effects, its all just utterly horribly bad.
Selling or renting out this movie is actually the same as stealing peoples money.
Id rather ride naked on a horse made of barbed wire and melting lava than sit through this garbage again.
I nominate it for "the histories worst movie ever"-award.
I've seen all of those but Rebecca.
Bogie was such an ass-kicker with a back-to-back-to-back of Maltese Falcon, Casablanca, and Sahara.
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
Rise of the Guadians--- excellent, pretty much what you would expect from Dreamworks.
L ifs of Pi-- I had low expectations because it seemed like some kind of artsy foreign film about an Indian kid in a boat with a tiger, but wow what a great movie. Deep without forcing it on you.
Life of Pi was one of my favorite books for a period, but I still don't know how they translated some of the stuff to the screen. I'm real curious, but have been massively slacking on my movie watching for about a year now.
And I looked on our DVR and noticed TheRedArmy recorded "The Skin I Live In" based on my recommendation. I'm gonna request I be there for that to see his reactions.
"Maryland football: Where everybody gets hurt and the starting left tackle has an existential crisis."
I didn't read the book, but some of the reviews from people who did read it make it sound like the movie was even better. The animal effects were nutso awesome, if I had any idea how good the movie would have been overall, I would have definitely tried to watch it in IMAX/3D.
Flight: The crash scene is incredible. The rest of the movie sort of pissed me off. I don't care how hard of an alcoholic you are, if your entire life is depending on being sober the NEXT DAY, you can force yourself to not have a drink for a few hours. Especially when he demonstrated this ability earlier in the movie. I don't think what he did was "noble" at all at the hearing... just stupid.
Perks of Being a Wallflower: Never read the book, but really liked the movie. Emma Watson could get it.
Sinister: meh, is what it is for a horror flick. I was entertained.
I also watched some chick flick with Zac Efron in it where he finds the pic of some girl in Iraq and tracks her down. Forgot the name... prototypical chick flick... and yes, I watched it alone.
Flight pissed me off. Denzel did great, but I agree with HYS-you could easily hold off on the booze for 12 hours. Also not noble at all to martyr yourself at the end.
Saw perks of being a wallflower last night. Really enjoyed it
End of Watch - Damn what an intense movie. I was primarily interested because my obsession with Anna Kendrick, but was hooked easily and some of the scenes really shook me.
watched a movie called "compliance" last night.
Pretty fucked up movie, especially because as crazy at it seems it is based on a true story and not in the way that most movies are. If you wikipedia the story it's pretty much a direct telling.
I'm sure some of you heard about the incident several years ago but it's basically about a guy who pranked a bunch of fast food places pretending to be a cop and duping managers into thinking their employees stole money. In this case he got the manager to conduct a strip search and do a lot of other not-good things to this girl.
Life of Pi is fantastic. I loved it and I've read the book, and my friends who haven't read the book also loved it. I was pleasantly surprised at how true to the book it stayed.
The Master was well-acted but boring as shit. We turned it off 2/3 of the way through, maybe there was some kind of ah-ha ending or something but it just didn't seem to be going anywhere.
wiscy, i can't believe you dont think the girl from Beasts of the Southern Wild should have gotten an oscar nomination. she was incredible. the movie was incredible too. i almost had to turn it off at the beginning bc i felt so sorry for the girl and couldn't deal with the heartache. so glad i stuck with it. watched it last night too, two nights in a row. outstanding movie.

Total Recall-- let's take the basic story from the first one, add some special effects, but remove every single scene from the original that everyone actually Iiked. It's like they were so concerned with not just doing the same movie that they eliminated everything remotely enjoyable.
End of Watch - NOT what I expected. Great character development, great action scenes after the slow first hour. But, it ain't right...
And Fade Into You has GOT to be the most used song in movies/TV over the last twenty years.
End of Watch was just ok for me. Hate myself for liking Battleship,
Red Dragon. Good thriller, I recall seeing it earlier but it was well done enough to keep me in the dark about twists I'd forgotten.
Last flight...two movies
Ruby Sparks - I kind of liked it, but I did end up hating Paul Danos character..if intentional, kudos to them. But the way he acted, I did not want a happy ending. But would recommend seeing it.
The Watch - I liked it...ridiculous with the story but Stiller, Vaughn, Lee Ermey hade cracking up probably more than I should have...
Jackie Robinson isn't dirty. This isn't Pack Pride.
couldnt agree with you more....it might have been the hardest watch since leaving las vegas....q was incredible and so was the movie...it def was the best movie of the best pic noms and probably the best picture of the year (havent seen everything yet)....you could tell that the majority of hollywood felt the same way if you watched award season...every audience at every awards show was all in on beasts
not gettng enough love imo is the father in the movie...he was phenomenal but you dont hear a peep about him...all the accolade are heaped on q and zeitlin
The first time I watched The Avengers I wasn't too impressed, but I had been drinking all day so I figured maybe I should give it another shot. I watched it again, and I still don't quite get the hype. It was a good, loud action movie. But I really don't think it was that much more impressive than the Iron Man movies on their own or even Transformers.
