I haven't seen Troy yet, but I'll probably see it soon.  :)

But, if you're going to rent a new movie, get The Last Samurai!  <3  I saw it at Christmas and it ruled!  !!!

Really?  For which movie:  Gladiator or The Last Samurai?  

Another really nice rental we got last week was Kill Bill!  <3 One of these days I have to see Volume Two.  I think it might still be in theatres.

I saw Troy this weekend, and that was definitely a good movie; the critics can bite me! Eric Bana was especially good, I thought! Go see that with my recommendations. :)

I'm looking forward to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. I've already got my ticket for opening day!!  :D I  <3 Harry Potter.

I even love the trailer and everything "the bride is back" omg, the first part was so amazing, I cant wait to see second, I am aware that second (as mentioned by magazine reviews) is not to be expected to have so much action, but nonetheless, still a great movie to look foward! :D
Title: Re: Movie, Movie, Movie
Post by: mfortunato on May 18, 2004, 12:59:56 PM
Ah the summer movies.  Fun, fluffy fare.

The three I am most looking forward to are:

"Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" (the 2nd movie was fantastic so I'm hoping the 3rd will be just as good).
"Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" - It just looks so cool and it has a fantastic cast.
"The Day After Tomorrow" - what can I say?  I'm a sucker for disaster flicks!

I saw "Van Helsing" and while everyone seems to think it was boring or just plain crap, I loved it!  I thought it was so much fun!  It is totally over the top and completely silly and that's why I liked it :D!

I haven't seen Kill Bill v.2 yet, but that's on my list as well.
Title: Re: Movie, Movie, Movie
Post by: Yonkey on May 18, 2004, 01:04:36 PM
My sister thought the same, Katie.  But after watching it the first thing she said was "Is Kill Bill 2 still in theatres!? !!!"  So yeah, I highly suggest watching it first.  ;D

For 3D animated films, Shrek was great, but my #1 fave is still Finding Nemo.  ;P

From what I heard from -fans- its because the anime is SO FREAKING GOOD that the movie pales to compare in reality to what the true scence of Van Helsing is, Im sooo getting the anime ! :D

Same -sort of- happened with Dare Devil and Witchblade (serie) my point is that that are -good- comics hits and such, yet once put on screen (movie or tv) not many worked out as good as Xmen :P

Some fans are very demanding... even more when the original concept IS excellent per se.

Just so everyone knows, well, this mainly applies to the few aussies on here...

Harry Potter = Thrusday, 10th June
Shrek2 = Thursday, 17th June.

Well, I also don't have anyone to go to the movies with...especially since I made my WHOLE family mad and disappointed in me last weekend...still haven't heard anything from them today...they're at work...

I don't know if it's being broadcasted in the netherlands either. It's on WB on Sunday at about 10:00am, or Monday at 1:00am. They have season 1 and 2 on DVD now, so if you want to see it, you could always buy/rent/import it.
 I'm wanting a movie or new season, because they're stuck on a plateau. I WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!

The Lost World (http://www.lostworldtv.net/)

P.S. They've already made a movie of the book, I want a movie of the series. Although one of the actors from the series was in the movie.

Now that you mention it, I do not like war movies  :-X they really... just... I dont know, I remember these movies that BlackHawk thingy with Josh Harnet, and that other famous one with Ben Afflec... (see I dont even like them as to the point to freaking forget the real names lol) I did get to see them but personally I didnt like them :(, I do not like war or anything, the only one that I did wow... loved "The Pianist" omg, it was... so... wow... but it was more not from the point of view of the solder itself more like a tragic horrible... moment in history :( Troy was epic, it was amazing, same with other movies such as Gladiator and Ben Hur and such, they do have violence and conflict but there is somehow still that glam element about the gods, the king and stuff, its really the upside of that whole thing. I believe.

The only thing I EVER EVER LIKED about war was Band of Brothers, that serie of HBO, Because I am an HBO FREAK, I love Oz, q**** as a Folk, Band of brother and now I whine desperately cuz I want to see Carnivale and I wont be able to *cries*

My favourite movie about "War" was "Life is Beautiful."  Very moving.
"Apocalypse Now" was also good....it was very disturbing.

I also enjoyed Saving Private Ryan.  The beginning was so intense and graphic.  No glory in that.  I now at least partially understand why my Grandfather never talked about WW2. :S


Movies I'm looking forward to is "The Day After Tomorrow" (Out tomorrow...probably see it Sunday), "The Life Aquatic" (I looove Wes Anderson movies!), "Dodgeball" (Ben Stiller, hehehe), "The Terminal" (Saw an ad for it the other day...looks good), "Spiderman 2", and "The Chronicles of Riddick" (probably be stupid, but I'll probably see it anyhow. :D)

The Day After Tomorrow was a good movie, I always love seeying America get completely annihilated!

The only downside was that the entire movie was set in NewYork!
There was 1 tiny sub-plot in England, and about 30 seconds worth in Mexico, but that was about it!

On all the posters etc... there are pictures of Paris, Sydney etc... all being wiped out, but you dont see anything other than NYC! Arghh!!!

So, I would say this movie turned out to be more about NewYork being destroyed, not The Whole World Being Destroyed! a bit dissapointing.  :(

Well, you're in luck.  Plans went exactly how I expected them to go....:S

The only downside was that the entire movie was set in NewYork!
There was 1 tiny sub-plot in England, and about 30 seconds worth in Mexico, but that was about it!

Yeah, most of those end-of-the-world movies show only the US. But then, The War Of The Worlds was all about the UK... Maybe some people only like to see their own country destroyed :P

Hiya! I know I haven't posted in forever...can I be forgiven? Not that anyone noticed, I'm sure. Anywho, movies...I'm a huge movie fan. Which one are we discussing? The Day After Tomorrow? GREAT! Loved it. Harry Potter 3? AWESOME! Adored it. Um...that's all the new ones I've seen recently. I can't wait to see Princess Diaries 2 (i liked the books...sue me).Spiderman 2, Van Helsing, Chronicles of Riddick...I don't have enough time or money to see all the ones I want to. Just saw Miracle...good inspirational...my dad wasn't exactly eager to watch it cuz he watched the actually game. Just saw Timeline, with Paul Walker...good movie. Um, saw Cold Creek Manor...didn't like it.

Cat
Title: Re: Movie, Movie, Movie
Post by: Jeysie on June 28, 2004, 05:17:25 PM
I'd heard of it several years before the movies came out, but I never really wanted to read it. I've generally never liked fantasy that much with a very few exceptions, I'm more a straight science fiction fan. (As everyone gasps in utter horror. ;) ) I did read The Hobbit as a young 'un, though.

But a few months before the first movie came out, when the news first came out there would be movies, I caved in and read the books. I've only read them the once, because honestly, it was hard enough wading though Tolkien's writing style the first time. (Now I'm REALLY going to get flogged, I bet. ;) )

There is a mildly funny story that goes with that, though. When I went to buy the books, I couldn't find them displayed in the spot I'd expected (in the SF/Fantasy under "Tolkein", obviously). So, feeling a little foolish but stymied nonetheless, I asked the clerk at the counter if they had a copy of the books available.

He led me over to the special display they had set up in anticipation of the movie (which is why I hadn't been able to find the books :P ), and asked me, and I paraphrase-quote (to the best of my memory, that is) "Do you want the paperback, the "softcover", the hardcover, the annotated hardcover, or the annotated hardcover with appendix, professional artwork sketches and scenes, and goldleaf-trimmed pages?" (I kid you not, that last (or at least the gist of it, I distinctly remember the artwork and gold trim bits) was one of the options!)

I gave him a slightly bemused look, and said good-naturedly, "I'll, er, take the paperbacks. I want to READ the books, not frame them in a museum!" He laughed and said, "Yeah, I don't blame you, it seems a little much to me, too."

Peace & Luv, Liz
Title: Re: Movie, Movie, Movie
Post by: B'rrr on June 28, 2004, 05:29:12 PM
i have the simarillion, the hobbit and lotr in english and dutch, they are all paperbacks for the same reason as you. my dad has a 'luxe' version though  ;-D
Title: Re: Movie, Movie, Movie
Post by: koko_99_2001 on June 28, 2004, 05:36:46 PM
lol...too funny Jeysie!  

Well, my sister has the 3-in-1 volume with the appendixes in the back.  I have the softcover individual ones with the movie pics on the front.  I must admit that the first time I read RoTK, I had to force myself to read about the last half of it.  I thought it was SO boring!  However, in my Fant. Lit. class, my professor told us that the last part (the Shire part) is probably the most important because it shows us how much all the hobbits had grown throughout their journey...*shrugs* If he says so...he knows more about it than I do!

Title: Re: Movie, Movie, Movie
Post by: Jeysie on June 28, 2004, 06:06:51 PM
Hee. I actually ended up with paperbacks of the first two, and a "softcover" of the third, because that's all they had left of the third one. (I dunno what the technical term is, but basically a version that's the same size as a typical hardcover, but has a cover and binding like a paperback instead.)

I've never been big on collecting as its own purpose... to me the main value of an object is in its use, rather than its looks or solely the possession thereof. So I'm generally not fussy about getting "collector's editions" or "rare editions" or whatever of books unless the additions would add something to the story that I felt was equivalent to the extra cost.

I might have been tempted to get the "deluxe" version he mentioned for the artwork... but not at the $70 price listed for it!

At any rate, my next goal is to finally read all the Narnia books before the movies come out. ;) (So far I've only read The Lion, the Witch, and the Warddrobe, and Prince Caspian.)

Peace & Luv, Liz

I was told that the scene that Neil and I were hinting at (the "crowd of people, two kids" one) is actually not in the comics.  But it was an awesome scene anyway!  I have some of the old DC collectors cards from about 1992--so with both X-Men and Spiderman, I have kinda figured out how they're going to end...but since I didn't read the comics, I don't know HOW they're going to get to the end! :P

Yeah, after seeing Spiderman 2, you'll definitely notice a deviation from the comic series.  But don't worry, it's a good deviation, IMO anyway.  8)

They're probably not going to get to every aspect of the comic either, since AFAIK Spiderman 3 (May 2007) is the last in the trilogy.


I'm really not a Batman or Catwoman purist so it's so not stopping me from seeing Halle Berry... err.. Catwoman.  ;D  <3

Cat: Catwoman also appeared in the second Batman movie, "Batman Returns."  Played by Michelle Pfeifer.  She wore a tight leather body suit.  Covered everything but was still OH-SO-SEXY.  :o  So, I agree with you on the clad comment, but clad has never really bothered me. :D  But it's still not enough to get me to watch a stupid movie.

Well, I didn't see the first two Batman movies...when they came out, I guess I would have been too young to enjoy them.  I saw the two that included Robin.  But from the sound of it...Michelle's costume sounds like it's more of what she wore in the comics--unlike HB's (as has previously been covered! or not :P)

Yes, you should rent the first one before seeing the second.

There's a couple of things that just wouldn't make a whole lotta sense without seeing the first.  (You can see it stand alone and still enjoy it, but you'd miss out some references and such.)

And yes, Kirsten Dunst is a superbabe.  My biggest complaint with Kirsten Dunst (and this is a very serious infraciton of living a good life) is that she's not dating me. :D  Hopefully someday she'll come to her senses and become my Sugar Momma. :D

Aaaahh! A thread of importance, I have stumbled upon(read in Yoda voice)

In talking about movies I first must say that whatever praise I bring to any movie will never be above that that I would be prepared to extend to the LotR series. Those will always rock my world.

Now, Spidey is my fav in the comic movie world, although Zorro was good and, against the stream, Hulk was enjoyable as well. In fact I even enjoyed Superman at the time and especially Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor. Batman deteriorated, as many has already noted, with time, while X-men, IMHO, is overrated from the get-go.

Saw Chronicles of Riddick and it really wasn't all that great, so I saw The Terminal right after and that was a great movie. Not so much a chick flick as I first thought it would be, although I really enjoy the so-called "chick-flicks", for the most part.

Spiderman 2's probably the best movie I've seen this year.

I'm still waiting for a couple others this month like:

- The Bourne Supremacy
- Catwoman
- I, Robot
- The Village
- Collateral
- The Manchurian Candidate

I'm not sure if I'm gonna see all of them, but hopefully most.  ;D
Title: Re: Movie, Movie, Movie
Post by: zerogravityfire on July 15, 2004, 11:43:42 AM
Yeah Yonkey! You have good taste in movies.

The Manchurian Candidate
The Bourne Supremacy
I, Robot

are all movies I'm waiting very patiently to see*angelic face with a impatient heart*

Denzel is one of my favorite actors. If he is in it it is almost assuredly a great movie. Same with Morgan Freeman and Tom Hanks.
Title: Re: Movie, Movie, Movie
Post by: Jeysie on July 15, 2004, 12:43:59 PM
I'm kind of leery about I, Robot, since they've out-and-out said it's not based on any of the short stories. Plus I thought Harlan Ellison's Illustrated Screenplay version kicked butt. Besides, it just wouldn't be the same without Powell and Donovan in there *somewhere*. ;D

And I thought the X-Men movies also kicked butt.

I'm waiting around for I, Robot also...not exactly my type of movie but it actually looks interesting.  Still wanting to see Princess Diaries 2.  I'm sure there are more that I'm waiting for, but I can't remember them! :P

BTW, I love both the X-Men movies!!

Movies looking forward to:

See Neil's list, minus the crapfest known as Catwoman. (Not that you care, Neil, but I will not hold the fact that you want to see that movie against you. :))

Saw both Butterfly Effect and Secret Window.  Neither were great, neither sucked.  

Both get 3.5 <3's out of 5.

Post by: zerogravityfire on July 16, 2004, 07:42:50 AM
Haven't seen Butterfly effect, mostly because of Ashton Kuchter(SP?), the non-actor. The concept is interesting though, although I have seen movies with good concepts of time travel and that category before and very few are really well thuoght thruogh and hold up in the long run. This one I don't know if it will or not, you tell me

I saw Shrek2 recently in theaters. I also rented Mooseport, a movie with Ray Romano as a small town plumber in Maine who runs for the mayor against the former president of the US. (The name of the town is Mooseport.) Also rented Mona Lisa Smile, very good movie. I saw Stepford wives at the theater, it was good, funny and had a point about not making people like robots, people have flaws in them but that is what makes them human. I saw Rotk. I wanna see HP3 and the Notebook.  
Title: Re: Movie, Movie, Movie
Post by: Rosedragon on July 16, 2004, 10:55:49 AM
I wanna see the Butterfly affect and the Last Samurai. I find it's better to wait for movies to come on video since I have a blockbuster membership. They can be expensive from blockbuster too, but not as much as a theater ticket cost.
Title: Re: Movie, Movie, Movie
Post by: zerogravityfire on July 16, 2004, 12:07:56 PM
Yeah I tend to wait for the DVD/VHS release too, unless it's a movie that really needs a big screen or a really good movie soundsystem. Usually those two types of traits are found in the same movie.
Plus you can't beat the community feeling in a theater when it comes to seeing movies like LotR and Star wars and matrix etc...

Released, yes.

The theater where I live, is one room. So the movies aren't normally shown on the release date. I could go to a larger one, but they're further away, and I like the smaller one.

Hey Guys!
( Jael, Racx... )

I, Robot comes out this thursday I think, I'll double check the release date. ( I Work for Hoyts )

We usually get movies only a 1 week after the US, and in some cases at the same time or just before.
Harry Potter 3, we got it a few hours before they did, and the same with Day After Tomorrow.

The distributers are very strict with security and THEY decide when the movies can be shown.
With HP3 for example, they sent the actual film in 3 sections with sperate couriers so if one went missing, the thief wouldn't be able to publish the whole film before its release.

Did you know 2 guys got caught at the Premiere of Day After Tomorrow at Sydneys Fox Studio's Hoyts...
They had cameras and managed to get them into the cinema... They both got fined like $200,000 each!
( Like I said, they are craxy with Security. )
We even had undercover agents from the distributers of HP3 come and do surprise walk-throughs of the complex to make sure we were following the 'proper' security procedures with the film! OMG they are TIGHT ASS!

 ;)

We also have a theater with only one screen in the town I live in...and they've been showing Spidey 2 for three weeks now!  But there are several larger theaters 30 minutes in just about every direction for us...so all we have to do is make it to the theater in time for the movie!! :P

I remember back when E.T. first came out. It took about 4 months for it to come over the Atlantic to Sweden after having been released in the States, and then it took another 5 years(!!) before it went to video. That's crazy, especially with the speed it goes today.

Post by: J-ROC on July 20, 2004, 11:05:26 AM
Yeah, when I was living in Germany, it was a pain in the butt because we watched everything at the Canadian theatre, and the english movies didn't get sent over until they were done screening in North America.
So, by the time we got it in our one theatre on the base, the movie was coming out in video back in Canada.

Hmm. I agree, it's fun stuff get blowed up real good, but only when it get blowed up real good for an interesting plot reason.

As for scary movies... I like psychological horror movies, stuff that plays with your head, not necessarily needing a lot of gore or whatnot. Hack 'n' Slash stuff usually does nothing for me.

Hee. The stupid teen comedy thing reminds me... I used to love watching USA Network's Up All Night, which basically was devoted to showing B-movies late at night, the sort of movies which involve things like lame rubber monster suits, fake blood, and scantily-clad women. It was a kick in a Mystery Science Theater 3000 sort of way.

If you like us like these psyche movies, then these movies are musts: *The Usual Suspects...King of the unexpected twists(in my book, since it was the first movie that REALLY caught me off guard)
*Dead Calm(with Sam Neil and Nicole Kidman at sea)
*Signs(M. Night Shyamalan's 3rd movie)
*Out of time(Denzel Washington, always good)
*Fallen(another D. Washington-must-see)


More to come...

Post by: J-ROC on August 01, 2004, 12:37:12 AM
As much as I enjoy MST3K, I still don't like making fun of good movies as we're watching them.

Mind you, if they're old campy movies, we (a group of friends and I) would often do the hecking thing.  Even at theatres.

There was an older theatre in Halifax called Wormwoods (since closed) and they had midnight showings.  Anyway, one night they showed the original "War of the Worlds".  Well, every time Dr. Forrester was mentioned, we had to chant:

"FORRESTER! FORRESTER!  DOCTOR CLAYTON FORRESTER!"

By the end of the show, most of the theatre was joining in. :D




ON another note, I just watched "The Rundown" tonight, starring The Rock, Christopher Walken, and Sean William Scott.  It's a fun and funny action movie.  Not realistic or anything, but still amusing and good for a laugh.

Also watched the indie film "Elephant".  It's about a high school shooting...like a ficticious Columbine.  I didn't like it.  There wasn't much on the character development, not much of a story, and wasn't very moving...other than a little disturbing.  I did like it how it TRIED to make you feel connected to the characters because it gave you their names, but it didn't really work.  I also liked how it was kinda boring, like the average day of high school student that suddenly goes wrong.  It got some critical acclaim, but I don't really see why.

I'd go with you, James, if you need someone to hold you through the scary parts, but you live to far away... ;B I am watching it though. No question about that! Yeah the Rundown is a great movie for just having fun and some good action. I want that one. I really enjoy the Rock more and more. The Scorpion king...meh but since then, he's really getting better and better. Can't wait for "Walking tall". Also Peter Jacksons latest one, "King Kong" remake.. that'll be a good one too...

BTW the last Star Wars movie is starting to take shape and it has gotten its name now. It's "Episode III: Revenge of the Sith". Although Star Wars as a series has deteriorated the second was better than the first and this third one looks like it'll be the best of the ast three...(hopefully)

*BRINGING KIDS TOO YOUNG TO WATCH AND THEY GET SCARED AND SCREAM AND STUFF(see above)

Well, it'd be kind of hard for the last movie to be *worse* than the first two. :P

The only good part of the first two was Ewan MacGregor as Obi-Wan, and not just because he's gorgeous, either.

Post by: J-ROC on August 02, 2004, 02:10:11 AM
I agree that Ewan McGreggor was brilliantly cast.

Natalie Portman is quite alright, too, if you ask me.

Liam Neeson was excellent, as well...but he was only in one, dangit!


Zero:  Thanks....at least someone here is willing to comfort me during a movie. :)
Title: Re: Movie, Movie, Movie
Post by: zerogravityfire on August 02, 2004, 08:15:05 AM
Yeah, Ewan was really good and also Liam, but I couldn't really stand the kid playing Anakin(in the second movie), and Natalie was a lot better in the second. In the first she acted as if she was constipated the whole time. I know, I know, she was supposed to be more "royal" or something like that, but that isn't how she came across.

It'll be really interesting to see all the developments and especially what happens to Count Dooku(also well cast). I my opinion, the first movie could be watched with the mute function enabled, and it would have been a better movie.(except for all Yoda lines of course)
Title: Re: Movie, Movie, Movie
Post by: J-ROC on August 02, 2004, 12:16:14 PM
Yeah, Christopher Lee (I THINK that's his name) as Count Dooku was also very well cast.

Both kids that played Anakin were pretty terrible.  I still think Hayden Christanson (second) wasn't quite as bad as Jake Lloyd (first).  Jake's "Whoopiees" in the shop there were the least enthusiastic celebration I've heard that wasn't meant to be sarcastic.

Post by: Jeysie on August 02, 2004, 12:56:42 PM
All of the "romance" scenes in the second movie made me want to crawl under my seat. Ugh. Somebody tell Hayden he needs a new day job.

I just got back from seeing Catwoman. :X  OMG, whoever hasn't seen it yet, please do NOT see it.  It was way too cheesy, fake (as in too much computer generated graphics, but in a bad way) and Halle saved the movie as much as the captain saved Titanic. ::)

Honestly, I don't know if it was the acting, writing or the directing that sucked, but it was just bad.  And for those of you wanting to see it just for Halle, she was way better in Die Another Day than this movie.  :o

Neil, for the most part the acting in Catwoman was good (there were a few minor exceptions...and the rich lady who was a not-so-minor exception :P).  What killed the movie was the writing, directing, much of the costuming, the editing, and the special effects.  Other than that, the movie was GREAT. ::)
Anyways, this summer I've seen a lot more movies than I usually do (there are bonuses to being sick :P).  So, here's a short review of each one...
Spider-Man: this is the second time I saw this, and it was still VERY good.
Spider-Man 2: Even better than the first!
X-Men: not quite as good as I had thought it was the first time I saw it, but it was still great. And this time I got to see deleted scenes!
X2: X-Men United: WAAAAAY better than the first!  Terrific!
A Cinderella Story: Slightly better than I expected.  Still not something I'd recommend by a LONG shot.
Catwoman: I believe you saw my mini-rant at the beginning of this...

I've also been watching the TV series "The 4400" which is so so so cool.  There's a marathon from 4 EST to...uhm...some time...on Sunday which should show all the episodes in order. So anyone who gets USA on their TV, I *highly* recommend watching that marathon!  I already said I'd tape it for Jeysie...maybe she could make copies of the tape(s) for anyone who's interested and can't watch?  She's more likely to know how to do it than I am. :)
Title: Re: Movie, Movie, Movie
Post by: Yonkey on August 07, 2004, 08:43:00 PM
I just got back from "The Village"!  :D

It was so not as scary as the commercials made it seem, there were a few scary moments though. XD  Overall, it was a pretty good movie. :) It's also one of those movies that leaves you thinking once you know the ending. 8)

Post by: koko_99_2001 on August 08, 2004, 05:26:34 AM
My sister saw it and I think she is wanting to see it a second time (either that, or she's already seen it twice!).  Anyway, from what I hear, it's better than the reviews make it.  Of course, when do the reviews ever do a movie justice??

Just got back from The Princess Diaries 2.  It was really good.  A little corny, but that's what makes the movie.  I mean, it's based on a girl who is so uncoordinated who is trying to become queen of a country! :P  Anyway, I really enjoyed it.

There was a trailer for a movie called "The Forgotten" that aired during the Olympic coverage that looked pretty interesting. It'll be nice to be interested in a movie that isn't a sequel or based on something... hasn't happened in a while.

I preferred Reservoir Dogs and the Kill Bills.


Shaun of the Dead -> Not too bad, actually.  Probably more "british" humour than I could understand, but still kind of a fun zombie movie.  My friend I saw it with didn't like it, but he also didn't like Spidey 2.

Garden State -> With Zack Braff, of TV's "Scrubs" fame.  He also wrote and directed.  Also stars Natalie Portma.  I really enjoyed that movie.  It reminded me a lot of Wes Anderson movies (Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums).  Disfunctional people in weird relationships, but a very sweet and moving film.

Since it was made by the same people that made Shrek(which took a LOT of work for people to get me to watch in the first place), I'm guessing I can expect it to be just as bad. :P

Well, I finally saw the movie I've been waiting to see for so long, and I'm not dissapointed.  It raised many interested eyebrows, but some people debate what is said in the movie.  Its one of those things where "This COULD be right, BUT this just might be a little MORE right."  Then again, I don't know.
Title: Re: Movie, Movie, Movie
Post by: J-ROC on October 05, 2004, 11:52:19 PM
Well, it's fact.... but it's Michael Moore's interpretatoin of those facts.  He speculates on some of the reasoning and thought processed people went through to make some of their decisions, but it's based on documented facts.

Part of the point is to draw your own conclusions, though.

But as to avoid getting into a political discussion, the only thing else I have to say is that I thuroughly enjoyed the film.

He throws quite a humourous twist on many things.  It keeps the presentation interesting.  And he makes the decisions that people have accepted seem ludicrous, because he puts them next to the principles many of us hold true and then we realize that the decisions made are actually nuts.

Lessee...

Harrison wants to see Fahrenheit 9/11, but he wants to see Bowling With Columbine first.

Looking forward to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban coming out on DVD next month since I didn't get to see it in the theater. Plus Harrison said he liked what he saw of the first HP movie, so maybe I can nag him to watch this one with me.

I want to go see The Forgotten, but Harrison doesn't want to see it, and going to the movies alone sucks. Poo.

We both did go to see Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow. Very fun movie... a fun stylistic romp throwback to the 1950's black & white B-Movie sci-fi serials. Plus Dex was the coolest character. Harrison didn't like it though... figures. Maybe it's just as well we never go to movies any more... he never likes any of them. :P (Although I get the feeling that Harrison was expecting an epic-deep-plot movie from Sky Captain... which it definitely wasn't intended to be...)

I could be wrong, but I'm guessing it won't sell well outside the US. :P

I'll quote IMDb (http://www.imdb.com/)

Quote
Since childhood, Benjamin Franklin Gates has known that he is decended from a long line of people whose job is to guard a treasure hidden by the Founding Fathers, who hid clues to its whereabouts in the country's currency and on the back of the Declaration of Independence. Now, he has learned of a plot to steal the Declaration, and has only one option: steal it himself. Even if he pulls off this monumental task, keeping the treasure safe is still going to be incredibly hard, especially since the FBI has also gotten wind of the scheme.

Weird plot, but it caught my attention. XD

I agree, watching movies in the theater is the best (I meant to watch both in the theater too, meh).

But watching movies at home has its own appeal... like being able to pause the movie to go pee and get more snacks, and being able to poke fun at things MST3K style without everyone yelling at you. Oh, and rewinding and rewatching really fun parts, or to check if that tiny little in-joke detail you saw really *is* what you thought it was.

Anyhoo. Both movies are/will be out on VHS too, never fear. Just without the cool extras. >:(

Well, it's not a new movie, but... they aired Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone on TV the other day here.

Not bad, on the whole. What scenes they showed went decently, although some of the acting was a bit wooden. The special effects and music were nifty, of course!

I felt the movie was too rushed, though. They left out a number of things (more Gred and Forge! C'mon!) and shortened others. Would have been nice to see more of the classes (and teachers). For some odd reason, I find myself wishing they had more of the bits with Quirrell... I just liked the actor's portrayal of him. The "announcing the troll" scene in particular stuck me as hilarious.

I would probably like Snape and Draco a little more if I had seen just the movies. They both have a lot of style, especially Snape. (But Alan Rickman is way cool, anyway.) And Neville! He's so cute! (hugs) But aw, c'mon, where's Percy's glasses? They just seem a part of his personality somehow.

Didn't get to have Harrison's commentary on the movie yet, but he seemed to think it was fun. Even if he still kept mixing up Quirrell and Lupin. "Is he the really cool teacher you said you liked?" "No, I told you, that's the *third* movie. Now hush."

White Chicks was pretty lousy.  Had two scenes that made me laugh out loud, but the rest merely got a smirk, if anything.

The Waterboy is great, stupid fun. :)

Also rented Ju-On, the Japanese version of "The Grudge".  I will wait until daylight to watch that. :D

Because americans are too dense to get the reference?
j/k... don't shoot :P

Here it was translated to 'the wise men's stone', where 'wise men' is a commonly used word (something like 'elders').  
"Philosopher's Stone" doesn't have a known equivalent in my language.

Re: The Philosopher's Stone

The original title of Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone in England was the Philosopher's Stone. Thus in Austrailia, which is a commonwealth..it probably would be there too. :)

I think everyone should see Bridget Jones, the Edge of Reason...hehe.  Its not as funny as the book was and they made some majjjor changes but I still liked it.

I'm looking for an old movie i think somewhere in the 70's, but i cant remember its name. I think its a Walt Disney Movie

It starts with a big Alien Spaceship taking off from a Football Field, then these two Children are left behind. They have special Powers and can read eachother's mind.

They meet allot of Friends and then they hold hands with these six kids when they all jump over some fence.

Later in the Movie, the Alien boy gets brainwashed and is using his power to try and kill his Sister with a Steel Bar fom a Building being build.

Anyway, the Boy get's back to normal and then later the two Alien Kids fly off in there Spaceship again who is waiting for them at the Football Field.

Does anybody know the name of the Movie.

I have met "Galen" at a convention, and he's a great guy.  I saw the short trailer for Hitchhiker's and even though it didn't really show anything from the movie, it looks like they are on the right track.

Daventry: NP. I never cease to be amazed at the weird stuff I manage to remember. :D

MJ: I'm glad to hear Peter Woodward is a nice fellow. He's certainly a superb actor. I <3 his voice... accented, yet still precisely pronounced and perfectly modulated. He could make a phone book sound interesting! (I have such a horrible weakness for the classically trained variety of British actor...) And he has a wonderfully expressive (and nice to look at... *ahem*) face as well. Add to that the fact that I've always found the Technomages fascinating, and well... *squee*!

Maybe it's because over in your neck of the woods theater is a respected art, and many film actors are also stage thespians... whereas here in the US film acting and theater acting are usually two separate matters, and theater generally gets less popular clout.

Well, it looks like the Babylon 5 movie has gotten the axe (http://www.visi.com/~wildfoto/spoilers.html). (sigh) Damn it.

Well, at least I still have the Hitchhiker's Guide and 4th Harry Potter movies to look forward to this year. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory looks interesting as well (although I thought the original movie was quite good already). I'll probably see the Star Wars movie, too. It's like watching a train wreck... you know it's going to be horrible, but it's too morbidly fascinating to look away from.

Incidentally, are they actually making an Indiana Jones 4? I thought it was perpetually one of those rumors that keeps getting brought up and tossed around every now and then but never goes anywhere.

from TheRaider.net

When will Indiana Jones 4 be released?

That is currently unknown right now, with the script and project in limbo the shooting date could be weeks, months, or even years away. However, the rumor in Hollywood right now is that Indiana Jones IV will be released summer of 2006, only one year later then originally expected.

You want to see The Fantastic Four?!  That looks like elephant crap balled up in old dinosaur crap and then put into a fire for awhile and then crapped on by someone who ate too much spicy Mexican food.  That's how crappy that one looks... and then some extra crap in there for good measure.  :X

I saw episode three last night and I was really blown away.  It was very entrancing...you could see how Anakin loved Padme enough to turn evil.  I could have done without the "NOOOOOO" bit at the end, but what is star wars without a little cheese?  All the tie-ins to the next chapters were very much appreciated.  The scene between Mace Windu and the Emperor was ace too...did you see how he almost became evil too?  I can't wait to see it again!

Mace didn't almost become evil.  He was conflicted between the Jedi code and doing the right thing, even though it was against their code (killing the emperor)

And no, Yoda didn't use a lightsabre in any episodes other than 2 and 3.

The lightsaber technique that Windu uses is called Vaapad...it draws some of its power from the Dark Side....that is why Mace was able to redirect the Force Lightning.

I saw V for Vendetta last night.  For the most part, it's very good!  The acting is excellent, especially that of Hugo Weaving as V; he manages to project a lot of emotion, even behind a mask.  Natalie Portman, suprisingly, did a great job as well.

I saw V for Vendetta recently too! I like the first two Matrix movies better, perdonally; they conveyed a similar message, but the work was more original in the Matrix. However, you gotta love Hugo Weaving!  ;D  <3

I don't have to love anyone I don't wanna. ;P



V for Vendetta wasn't all that great from my point.  Not bad, but not that special either.  I never fall asleep in movies, but I did in V. :P

King Kong... yup, I'm one of the few that didn't see it in theatre.  Again, alright... but the cheesey lines kinda ruined it for me.  Cheesey lines are good when they suit the movie... but when you're expecting a fully dramatic flick, it takes you a bit off guard.

16 Blocks was rather good.  Mos Def... he always takes me by surprise because he's made a great conversion from rapper to actor.  He's quite natural and plays the parts phenominally well.  Bruce Willis was Bruce Willis.  Solid, but nothing spectacular.  Plot was also decent.

The Inside Man was pretty good.  Clive Owen was good and Denzel Washington was great.  There were certainly some different twists and different perspectives with the cinematography... but it was quite entertaining.  I did enjoy it.

I can understand what you mean about unexpected cheeseyness. Fortunately, I got the idea that there would be some cheesey lines in the film from the online production diaries. So I was more prepared for it. :)

I still haven’t had the chance to see Narnia. I know some fans of the books didn’t care for it too much, but since I've yet to read them, I'll have nothing to compare it to. (Except the BBC production, which I haven’t seen in years.)

V for Vendetta looks good too. ;D

Saw this last night and was presently suprised!

I didn't like 3 much so wasnt expecting much from this but it was really hilarious for the majority of the film. It dragged a bit near the end but the final scene was in my opnion the funnies of the entire film! That guy has Tom Cruise's mannerisms down to a tee!

Anyone else seen it yet?

I finally got to see Narnia last night, and while I'll agree that it wasn't as good as LOTR, I thought it was very good. ;D

Even though there are similarities between Narnia & LOTR, I think that they are very different in many ways, and I found that I enjoyed the movie more when I wasn't trying to compare it with LOTR.

Of course I might like the film less if I had read the novel before seeing it, but perhaps not. Making a movie has to be approached differently than a book, so deviations from the original material are usually inevitable.

I have. :suffer: Liked the whole thing. :)  I disagree with what you say on the third movie though.  Although it was the first I've ever seen, I don't think it was dull at all. It was just less gross than the fourth.

Yeah, I mean it had action but otherwise it lacked. All the scenes without a saber fight were boring as hell.

That's my opinion anyway. :P

also another good one was Platoon. amazing movie, simply shows what really happened in Nam.

the last great movie that I watched was Resevoir Dogs, usually i think tarantino is a piece of crap but this is seriously an amzing movie.

That sucks :-\ Someone did that to me with the ending of The Matrix Revolutions, and then there's my cousin who used to tell me the endings right in the middle of the movie. XD

Anyways, I saw POTC2 last night and liked it a lot. I wouldn't say that it's better that the original, but I wouldn't say it's worse either. It was a different movie from POTC1 rather than a rehash, which is good. Sequels that are practically the same movie as it's predecessor, are nowhere near as fun. The occasional reference to a past joke is of course okay as long as they don't go overboard. (No pun intended.)  :P

One of the major differences, it seemed to me at least, was the tone. It felt considerably darker than the original at some points, though it still had lots of silliness too.

As for the ending, which was awesome IMO, it's sure to make you anxious to see POTC3. They begin filming next month, YAY!

Post by: dark-daventry on September 28, 2006, 07:28:32 PM
Please note that the Neverending Story is NOT a game! It is a book by Michael Ende and a series of three movies (the third rated pure rubbish) and a canadian TV Series called Tales from the Neverending Story. I do miss the movie, for it was one of my absolute favorite movies back when I was little. (Well, it wasn't too long ago now that I think about it... T'was only a few years since I had last seen it...) The Neverending Story was a very good movie, I heard the book was extremely good, though I have not read it before. I wish a fourth movie would be made, one to bring the whole concept back on track...
