The Movie Thread

Grab some popcorn and watch a few flicks!

So, i noticed that there is no proper movie thread on this forum, well, atleast not what i could find. But what do i know, the search function has never been my friend :|

So i thought i would start one where we can give tips and/or warnings about new/old movies we have watched :)


So me and Stéphane went to see Spiderman 3 today, and i would like to plaster up huge warnings in regards to it!
Now, in all fairness, i could not even finish watching Spiderman 1...Had to switch off after that sappy kiss scene in the rain *puke*
So i subsequently never watch the sequel, but most people said that it was eons better that the 1st so we thought that nr 3 might be ok, but no.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0413300/ I voted and gave it a 3 out of 10.

It is just bad acting, bad story, ok special effects, embarressing jokes and too long. So there.

I heard the same from a few other people too. I guess I'll wait and watch it on cable.

I saw the movie "Vacancy" last weekend, and it was awful. The story line wasn't that great, but it wasn't un-watch-able. The movie itself was good, but they end it in the middle of all the drama! So, I was mad. I literally stood up and started booing. :|

I wasn't the only one expressing my contempt for the film... there were others! Anyway, Cory phrases "tougie" differently -- he says I'm "embarassing"! :cheeky3:

I don't think I have ever been to a film where people said ANYTHING at the end. :shock:

Do you ever clap or say "YAHOO" if it is good?

Oh clapping or booing, very interactive!

So i just watched "In pursuit of happyness" on a flight.

The movie is 117 minutes long, and 115 out of those are deeply depressing. We were contemplating using our plastic cutlery to commit harakiri...

Will Smith plays a struggling salesman, of portable bone density scanners out of all things...I wont give the story away further if you are still contemplating watching this movie, but he struggles, a lot...

Really cute kid though :)

I felt like killing myself after that movie!

Has anybody else seen "Shooter," with Mark Wahlberg? It was smurfing great! It's actually my new fave. And Mark is H-O-T HOT! (hence my new avatar).

I just finally got around to watching "The Departed." Good movie, but I had no idea what to think or say at the end. :|

And I cannot wait for "Blades of Glory" to come out on DVD!!! :D

Well I've seen all the new/newer kids movies! lol If anyone needs any advice on those, let me know.

I'm looking forward to seeing Night at the Museum, which I haven't seen yet. I'd also like to see the movie coming out tomorrow "Because I said so" or something like that. Looks like a good Friday night movie for me.

Oh The Departed, what an excellent movie, until the end. Such a list of actors, great violence, fab music and great story, and then, the end :|

Night at the museum was sort of funny at times, but nothing really remarkable...But it should be said, i saw that one in a plane aswell...

Oh how i want to watch Blades of Glory too!!! And 300! And i get all excited just thinking about Pirates 3 and the new Potter :D

I finally saw "The Illusionist" - I was very impressed.

Regarding "Pirates 3" - I thought it was waaaayyyyy too long (it had like 6 endings); thought it was better than the 2nd movie, but still nowhere near as good as the first. Wait for a matinee, or rent it.

I watched "Mr. Smith goes to Washington" and "Grapes of Wrath" this weekend. Liked both of them.

I have the BlockBuster thing through the mail and have listed the top 100 movies of all time. So far the only one that I haven't really like was "2001: a space oddysey". I couldn't make sense of it. If anyone has the meaning behind that movie please clue me in. :?

Right now I have a dvd I bought at the drug store in the player. They are all movies by Sonny Chiba. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonny_Chiba

Tarrantino is a big fan and after watching some of his stuff I can see the influence as well. T put him in Kill Bill. I think he was the guy who makes the swords.

Next movie I watch will probably be Apocolyptico.

I haven't seen a new movie in a REALLY long time. I don't have money to go to the movies nor to rent them so it's either catch stuff on tv or hope a friend rents something good and invites me over!

Last I saw was Sin City about 2 months ago at my friend's. I had heard mixed reviews back when it came out, but I really thought it rocked.

I agree on Sin City, went to see ti to the theater and I watched it a couple times on movie network, I just can't stop watching it if I come across it!

I went to see Inland Empire 2 weeks ago. I love most of David Lynch's work, but this one - he should stop doing crack, cause he's going completely crazy.
