@ Thiestru:

Funny, I made it about half way through and shut it off as well! Not because it was bad or anything, on the contrary I found it strangely mesmerizing, but I'm sick and have a whopper of a headache so I had to turn it off and nap.

I'm going to finish it tonight though and post my thoughts.

I really like the atmosphere. It is very Kubrickian.

Ah, Leon is such an amazing movie. I remember when I was living in Ireland a German friend of mine who was a film student would often lend me stuff out of his vast DVD collection. One day he loaned me Leon on the grounds that it was an awesome action movie. Not expecting anything more than that, I sat there with a stupid grin on my face for the entire movie. It is such a badass action movie and it's also so much more.

I just saw Ghostship. It's a very average horror/thriller. The characters are all horribly uninteresting, there were no scary moments whatsoever, and the obligatory little girl ghost was, as always horrible. In the last 20/30 min however.... the movie takes a turn for the weird.

Spoiler: show
The devil, Soul collectors, a out of place Ocean's Eleven "this is how we stole the expensive stuff" flashback with music that seems to be stolen from the same movie, gangsters killing everyone on board so they can steal the gold.... What were they thinking? It was quite amazing to see though. It sort of saved the movie for me with it's shameless out of wack weirdness. I got a good laugh out of it

I like the repetitive use of Not Falling by Mudvayne in that movie. Like any of those characters would like that song.
It was popular in the early 2000's to throw nu metal into mainstream horror movies for some reason.

The Dark Side of the Moon: what can I say about this B-movie weirdness? Was it bad or good? Truth is, it's hard to tell. It certainly wasn't terrible. Really unintentonally funny a lot of the time, it fails to set up a creepy atmosphere or any terror at all, especially with the hilarious "realisation" moments f the main character (oh my God...the Bermuda triangle. Oh my god...666. Yes this movie somehow combines both those things). The low budget special effects look decent. It kind of bothers me they they never really show deaths happening straight up, but I assume that was a necessity. I thought the Satan voice was really fucking shitty though. Just this lame sounding deep monster thing. The dialogue is pretty awesome and awkward from the strangely written characters and it seems like they tried to combine some elements from both Alien and The Thing. I love how the main character has a friggin mullet and the one fight scene lasts like 5 seconds. I also love all the obvious mistakes like the AI saying the ship had come to a complete standstill and then the camera showing it move through space not even a minute later.

Think it's safe to say you described a bad movie. Nothing worth watching a second time.

Watched Dredd finally, and yeah it was amazing. Only complaint I had was the setting looked a little too contemporary, there was streets and highways that looked just like modern ones and it's supposed to be inside of MegaCity 1 (everything should be made of metal and you can't see the sky except from the very top where the rich folks live.) My minor quibble with the setting was solved when they started hanging out in that hab block, which did look cool and hive city-like. I think the talk about a sequel being canned might be premature with how well the DVD sales for this movie are doing, I would love a sequel or even sequels.

Well, as soon as I saw the trailer I knew it would be the shittiest movie ever. It somehow looked worse than Project X. Though Ebert usually has terrible movie taste, I'm sure he hits the nail on the head here.

Bottle Rocket: Decent enough comedy/first movie by Wes Anderson. It doesn't really leave a strong impression, but the robbery scene is pretty damn funny and chaotic. The characters are easy to like and that's about it.

Harold and Maude: Pitch black subtle comedy from the 70's in which a young, death obsessed man who regularly fakes his suicide falls in love with a life loving old woman. A meditation on ephemerality and affection. I saw it more as a drama than a comedy and it's smooth pacing was appreciated. I wouldn't call it an all time classic but it was a pretty interesting movie.

My thoughts exactly, I have no interest in contributing to the success that Movie 43 will surely have.

But then I read that Halle Berry gets her tit out and mashes it around in guacamole.

Why does that turn me on?!

Ah, it's also got the now-overrated Wilson brothers. I'm gonna take you up on your recommendation and watch it.

For people who are interested in the upcoming X-men movie, I came across this article which said:
"Ellen Page, Anna Paquin and Shawn Ashmore will return for the film that bridges the original X movies and the prequel."
You can read the whole article which talks more about the movie here

@BastardHead: maybe you are turned on by such a scene because you are watching a black woman destroying something you hate with her body?

Django Unchained = awesome!

Anyone else notice the globe in the den at candyland? I'm fairly certain it's used as a prop in Inglorious Basterds as well.

Halle Berry's tits can do strange things to a movie going audience, see how many people willingly watched Swordfish?

The Believer - 2/5
Ryan Gosling, before he became uber popular, stars as a jewish neo-nazi who seeks to kill what he hates most, supposedly based on the true story of a KKK member in the 1960's who was revealed to be jewish by a New York Times reporter, yet it features little to nothing to do with this. The film starts off with Danny Balint (Ryan Gosling) attacking a jewish teenager in broad daylight with no remorse and then going off with his neo-nazi buddies to meet an anti-zionist group (it's never clearly explained) where he talks to the organizers about who he would kill if given the chance, rather than seem questionable they seem intrigued and interested in his homicidal behaviour.
Then halfway through the interesting premise where he might perform an assassination devolves into a love affair with a equally if not more disturbed individual (her story is never truly elaborated on) and Danny Balint becoming obsessive towards judaism, even wearing jewish clothes underneath his own clothes as if he's trying to get caught.
This movie would have been alright if I was made aware or why this guy was so disturbed, why he was doing things that were clearly against his earlier train of thought. Some type of inner narrative would have helped as I didn't really know who Billy Zane and his followers were, or what Ryan Gosling's character was trying to achieve and why he didn't show any reaction to shocking non-nazi related things. Also, scenes tended to meander like Romper Stomper, with no real direction or definable portrayal. It's ultimately pointless and makes little to no sense.

That's good to hear, usually those crappy Seltzer and Friedberg style comedies cost almost nothing to make and wind up making a lot of money back somehow.

How sad is it that silly parody films used be considered Zucker, Abrahams, and Zucker style comedies, and that they were usually funny? Now it's either S&F or the Wayans, and they're almost exclusively awful.

Basically the movie just seems like someone tried adopting the Aristocrats into an actual movie, right down to the wraparound segment being a pitch to a film executive, the talent agent of the scenario.

The problem with parody films nowadays is that they are only pioneered by people with no talent. People like Mel Brooks and Zucker, Abrahams, and Zucker don't make them anymore, leaving that genre to only the complete hacks like Seltzer and Friedberg or the Wayans. The public have shown multiple times that no matter how offensively stupid the movie is, they will go watch it in droves, meaning that the aforementioned hacks have an audience that will consistently watch their shit. It's the same kind of people that watch the Transformers movies and think they're excellent.

Mel Brooks may not make new movies anymore, but he's still out there producing some top notch stuff. I saw the live musical version of Young Frankenstein a few years ago and almost peed my pants laughing at least twice. Mel Brooks's style of comedy is timeless, and that's a huge thing that makes him different from the pop-culture obsessed S&F. I first saw The Producers when it was nearly 45 years old and I loved it from beginning to end. 45 years from now, is anybody going to understand the half assed "jokes" in Meet the Spartans?

Seriously, my seething hatred for these hacks knows no bounds.

That's one of the reasons The Flintstones has aged so terribly. It relied very heavily on the pop culture of the time and thus audiences nowadays don't understand most of the humor unless they look it up.

When it came out my brother wanted to go see it so he, me, and my father saw it in the theater. I kept looking over at my dad throughout that piece of shit and he just had this scowl of "Why the hell am I here watching this?" on his face throughout pretty much the whole thing.

I've never seen the whole movie, in fact I don't know what the movie is about, but my parents had it on DVD when it first came out and I have seen that scene with her topless like 100 times.

Trick R Treat: Wow! This movie was awesome! It was even better than V/H/S. This is probably the best ''anthology'' movie I've seen, though it's not really a straight anthology as much as expertly interwoven stories. The editing is artful and impressive, there are some really cool shots, and the stories are very creative. Most of all it's a lot of fun and creepy as hell in parts. I love how they go ''yeah everyone is dressed up and a lot have blood on them so you can basically get away with murder without people thinking twice''. The music was noteworthy too, really eerie piano stuff mostly.

That movie is bloody amazing, Necro! It really captures the feeling of Halloween masterfully. Sure, it's not really a "scary" horror movie, but it's very fun and brilliantly done. Hope that a sequel gets made soon!

I think V/H/S is better, but yeah, Trick r Treat is a lot of fun. It loses steam in the second half though, somewhere after that story with the ghost kids in the lake. The last one with the old man in the house is pretty dull. But it starts off with so much energy and it's just so crude and irreverent that I have fun with it anyway.

Yeah but it closes everything perfectly by connecting it to the ghost one. The only thing that disappointed me was that I was expecting Anna Paquin and her hot friends to be a coven of witches but instead we got

werewolves (complete with fucked up, skin ripping transformation).

It does close everything, but eh, it's just a weak-ass story that didn't make sense that much. Like for some reason it always bugged me that the old man could pick up that gun and shoot so well, and then handle the phone just fine, after his hands were cut up to all hell by broken glass. Mostly I just found it boring though. And that fucking little kid with the bag over his head - I wanna know who that was! We need a sequel.

I thought it was pretty clear what he was. His face was like a messed up jack o lantern and he was basically the spirit of halloween. Hence referred to as Sam in the credits (short for samhain). He left Brian Cox alone when he gave him candy.

I guess. Pretty flimsy explanation, especially when most of the movie is so clear and straightforward about exactly what it is, but I can buy it. I pretty much guessed as much, but I suppose I just would have liked a better story around that kid. Wishful thinking I suppose.

Well that movie was crap, after all...

Speaking of which, just took in the glory of Dredd and was amused by its tepid turdliness. For such a straightforward concept you'd think there wouldn't be very many ways to fuck it up, but they found plenty. Terrible writing, boring characters, zero tension, hardly any imagination put into the action sequences apart from the slo-mo aspect. When you're making an action movie you should probably hire people that are good at directing and writing action movies to make it. That's pretty much what I took away from this.
