enlighten me...I don't see the brilliance.
Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Unreal.
Hindi movie, Blue, starring Lara Dutta, Katrina Kaif, Sanjay Dutt and Ashkay Kumar. One of the most boring, predictable movie I've ever watched. Ash, whats your say on this?
Management : Cute
Shuttle : Interesting and ****ed up ending.
FINALLY seen Transformers.
don't get it. Megan Fox looked hot though.
Last night, I saw Monty Python and the Holy Grail for the first time in several years. Still makes me laugh like a little kid. Gotta love the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch
Just got tix for Michael Jackson's This Is It Concert Movie...
Last movie: "Road Trip - Beer Pong"
Unfortunately this will be the last movie I will ever see because I had to gouge out my own eyes immediately following it.
just back from Serious Man, the new Coen brother's movie. recommended if you like dark comedy, and/or are a fan of their films. otherwise, probably not.
Gi Joes : So much budget and such crappy CGI.
I watched Transformers 2 for a second time after originally seeing opening night. Overall not as bad as I rememered. But that is not to say it was good.
I have said before that it must be tough to make a superhero movie that is good, and it must be even more difficult to make a toy franchise movie. It has to be hard to give these CGI robots personalities and have the actors interact with them in ways that make you suspend your disbelief.
The plot was non-existent, I've seen porn with more character development. Actually T2 is somewhat like porn, meaningless dialogue to connect action scenes. But I digress...
There were some good aspects to it. The parents were good for comic relief and LeBouf was better than I remembered. The special effects are over the top but well done and somehow easier to watch on the small screen.
Law Abiding Citizen. Awesome.
District 9, it wasn't as good as I thought it would be but maybe it was just my attitude - I thought that there's going to be some more action.
watched 2001: A Space Odyssey last night, brilliant movie! Amazing how much influence that one film has had on the last 40 years of pop culture.
I've been watching a lot of 60's/70's movies lately. two observations:
1) the pace of movies has changed substantially; plots have been smoothed out to provide constant action/plot development. Is that a cause or effect of out lack of attention spans?
2) like pop music, the "issues" have gone from being philosophical/existential to more individualistic over the years. in other words, movies have gone from defining life to living life. does that make sense?
Great porn from 1976 that spoofs Jaws
Saw Transformers 2 last night for the first time. Horrible horrible horrible.
I don't care how "awesome" the special FX were, that has to be one of the worst movies I've ever seen.
Revolutionary Road. meh.
I've noticed the same thing...even dramas with some intellectual content (ex: recent adaptations of Dan Brown novels) move so fast I can hardly keep up.
Cause or effect of a typically-shorter attention span? Couldn't say.
Pre-1960's, big-studio movies were generally superficial entertainment, heavily censored. Indies that might tread riskier ground were for beatniks and intellectuals, and called "Art Films".
In the 60's, there was a large shift to social and existential relevance...finding definition. Censorship was replaced by the ratings system.
In the late 70's--mid 80's, Hollywood began a shift back to entertainment again, with an added influence that I perceive as coming from the 60's-70's era of social relevance.
In other words, entertainment with more depth as a rule, much faster-paced.
Paranormal Activity : Excellent.
WallE on Blu Ray. I've seen it a bunch of times and still think it was the best movie last year.
Land of the Lost on Blue Ray. Will Ferrell's comedy style was epic, too bad the film didn't do as well as everyone had hoped.
Man On Wire. fascinating documentary.
I remember that one. Great movie.
This Is It. It's a pity MJ's gone...what a performance it would have been...
Paranormal activity, what a ****ty movie. Total garbage from my point of view, was not well directed, terrible screenplay/effects, not scary at all I just don't know what at all is appealing of this movie.
