Agreed. I'd rather stab my eyes out than watch 2 hours of Danny McBride and Seth Rogen.
The who's who of offensive language and insults masquerading as comedy.

You probably looked away from the screen when Michael Cera slapped Rihanna's booty. That explains it. That was the shit when that happened.

Fuck you pretentious fucks. That movie looks awesome and you know it.
Just like Pinneaple Express and Superbad were awesome.

In my growing anticipation to see the Evil Dead remake, I'm delighted it's getting better and better reviews the more I check Rotten Tomatoes. The rating's gone up from a 78% to an 81% in just two or three days.

I feel rather conflicted about that remake. I'll see it of course, but... No Bruce. I just know I'll be laughing at inappropriate moments because I'll keep expecting funny moments where there aren't any. Though I am curious about that tree scene.

Well the original didn't have too many funny moments in it either as that was played as a straight horror film. Plus in that one Ash was pretty much completely unremarkable as a character; it wasn't until the 2nd movie where all the humor and badassery came into play.

Diablo Cody has never, ever written anything good so why should she start here?

8mm: Nicolas Cage tries to find out if a snuff film is real. Totally engrossing movie, great atmosphere, blaring soudtrack (there's even some Aphex Twin at some point), compelling themes, and entertaining acting over all. I love every performance except the wife's (only cause she isn't given much to do). It really made me think and was one of the better noirs I've seen in a long time. It wasn't well received and I fail to understand why.

Citizen Toxie: Toxic Avenger IV: So this movie gave the least amount of fucks of any Troma movie I've ever seen, which is saying a lot. The jokes are reaaaally juvenile and fucked (rape jokes, naming fun of cripples and retards, abortion, ridiculous violence) and it has no pacing to speak of. Ron Jeremy and Lemmy are in it, and there is a retarded character named Tito who does heroin that's the best part of the movie. Really it was pretty entertaining in it's own way, and much better than the tedious second one, but the first still reigns supreme. I miss Toxie's silly voice too, in this one he sounds all manly.

Because she wasn't the sole writer. Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues wrote it too, and I'm sure Raimi, Campbell, and Tapert were more hands on with things like dialogue and whatnot.

:lol: I forgot Diablo Cody was involved. I'm seeing it with a friend on Friday; will be interesting to see how her "wonderful" contributions affect the film...I think it's pointless to remake a movie like Evil Dead, but eh, I also like to stay current with what's in theaters and the trailer didn't look too bad. So we'll see I guess.

The reviews it's getting are making me very optimistic about it. It's now at an 82% on RT, and an 82% for a horror film means nothing but good.

Diablo Cody (stupid name) wrote Young Adult, which I thought was an alright movie.

Also, like has been said, she didn't write it by herself and it looks promising as hell. I'm rarely optimistic about something like this, but this is one of the rare cases.

Oh come on, the movie looks terrible. In no way shape of form will it be anything other than trash and rightly deserves all the negativity it receives. Hardly pretentious which it's the lowest form of comedy, resorting to cheap blows and overly foul language to produce a chuckle, it's below sight gags and slapstick and as such makes Black Sheep with Chris Farley seem outrageously funny in comparison.

Nope. It looks like lot of fun, and I like the majority of these actors, can't wait to see it.

You know what else had a majority of actors people liked, Movie 43, and that was complete ass.

Yes, except this movie has actors that generally do this kind of thing while Movie 43 had a variety of actors known for different things. Also if you're seriously comparing those two movies, I don't know what to say to you.

It's hardly an argument to unwaveringly see a movie based on liking the actors involved.

Except when it totally is. I've seen movies with premises that didn't seem great based on a favourite actor being in them and been entertained.

Nah, nobody could have saved Season of the Witch and The Wicker Man. But he did make Vampire's Kiss hilarious.

Would The Wicker Man have been as entertainingly bad as it was with someone other than Nicolas Cage doing some of the shit he does in that movie?

Didn't think so.

I had linked the teaser poster to "Only God Forgives" when it came out. It had a Gosling's mangled face on it if I remember correctly.
Well, the trailer for the movie is out. Still not sure what to think of it though.

Continuing my Nicolas Cage quest.

Bringing Out The Dead: This was a really weird, atmospheric movie about A few nights in an ambulance driver's life as he rapidly approaches nervous breakdown. The character study was compelling, and Cage gives one of his better performances, only going over the top a few times. Every other paramedic he works with is a colourful
character, but also a huge dick. The price to pay to deal with death on such a regular basis. The cinematography has a dreamy, almost surreal flair to it and it's quite a lethargic movie. Spending all
of it's time on character development. There is a plot, and yes some love, but it's very much not in the foreground and it really feels like a few days in this man's life.

The Rock: popcorn blockbuster. Michael Bay's best movie probably. It's pre-2000's too. I wasn't crazy about the look of this movie, again it's Michael Bay, but the action is satisfying and has less of an abuse of quick cut bullshit I'm used to from him. Oh, it's still there, just less. And with a movie that has Nic Cage AND Sean Connery, you can imagine the sheer charisma emanating from
the screen. It makes some of the super lame and trite action movie puns and "jokes" passable. "It seems like you're stuck in between...The Rock and a hard place" God damn it, Sean Connery.
Also interesting is that the villain is an even more compelling character than the good guys, with good motivation, and you find yourself rooting for him. There's some almost Call of Duty-esque sequences near the hour mark which left a sour taste in my mouth, but the movie make up for it with it's car chase.

You should probably header that "RE: Evil Dead Remake" or something. While I don't care about stuff like that, someone here probably does.

Just saw the new Evil Dead and it was fantastic. I was doing some research on IMDB after watching and couldn't help but notice Karl Willetts is casted as a long haired redneck. Didn't catch it during the movie can anyone confirm or deny whether it's Bolt Thrower's Karl Willetts?

Good god. Pineapple Express was some of the most painfully boring footage I've seen. Superbad at least had a couple of laughs even if the plot was pretty awful writing. Though I suppose it was just an excuse for all the jokes so can't fault it for that. I didn't watch this YouTube video, but judging by the comments, it's not something I found funny.

The pretentiousness argument is quite dated on the internet and is on especially thin ice when it comes to metal.

As a remake, this film just didn't live up. I appriciate the nods the sequel flms. Still, the original was doing new things when it came out. This is is doing things we've seen befoe from both Possesson films and torture films. Also, the soundtrack was way too over dramatic.

As a Horror film, it's a good film. There were parts that made me cringe and tense up. I liked the junkie storyline. The special effects where amazing. And it kept me guessing from begenning till end.

I give it a 7 out of 10.

Evil Dead remake: Good movie. A lot better than I expected, to say the least. It could very well be the best remake/reimagining/whatever movie I've seen. The script is decent (with a bit too many similarities in what the deadite says to the Exorcist, but I guess that can't be helped when it comes to possessions.) I thought their reason for being at the cabin was well thought of. The piano theme after the opening is bothering me though. I swear it's from another movie. it looks suitably gritty as hell, and there's buckets of blood and guts. Just buckets. Fucked up shit happens. Even more of a splatterfest than the original. The acting is ok, with only the brother and sister getting any real character development, but I thought it was pretty funny that the blonde girl literally doesn't open her mouth to speak until about 40 minutes in, and what she ends up saying is pretty inconsequential. Stupid decisions are made, but we get some justifications this time. They took a bunch of creative licenses with the story, but I was very disappointed in one of the additions (the spiritual dark ''other'') and the tree rape soon. As a movie of pure terror, it somewhat succeeds with it's relentless pace. As a remake of Evil Dead? I would say it rivals the original.

Saw the new Evil Dead. Was actually impressed. I think the original had a much more even balance of the occult/possession angle of the film along with the gore (the new one does seem more intentionally gory, though some of it is rather inventive), as well as that incredibly surreal/absurdist/otherworldly atmosphere that the new one lacks. I reallly liked the new junkie/detox subplot, and thought it was hilarious that the prepackaged blonde chick barely spoke (don't know if that was intentional). The post-credits scene was blatant and ridiculous, but I loved it.

In short, see it once- maybe twice.
