What's wrong with the "I Am Legend" ending?

And yeah, Wooter, it's the same shitty company. Be sure to watch "Alien vs Hunter" and "Monster"(a "Cloverfield" ripoff)...

My bro just got that joke off of Call of Duty 4...  hmpf  but it's ok :P

BDC: I dunno, I think I would just wonder why I went to go see a film with that sort of ending...although I would read a book with that kind of ending, soo....

Hmm. I think I'll get the book out.

Mini-rant: what really sucks is having only 2 and 1/2 screens at St. Andys. OK, so they have like 5 films on, but only 1 or 2 of which I'd want to see, and even then, they put them on at such obscure times rrr  mad

Rant over.

It's not off Call Of Duty 4, it's from Airplane.

You think it's bad to have 5 flicks playing? I have only two screens in my town and they're always playing the exact same things as each other, a children's movie and some shitty PG-13 horror movie.

I suspect this is a film people will either love or hate depending on what they think of Ellen Page's character.

Local audiences wouldn't understand what an airplane was, you see. Flying High sounded more exciting.

HD-DVD is crumbling! Serenity is getting slightly close to Blu-ray!!!

Also, i agree with Faze, i am selective with my Pillaging. Shitty Cam movies suck arse, i'd prefer to pay and see it on a nice Movie screen.

Preview screening (okay, so my friend won the tickets, but given that I'm essentially the Stephen Hawking of Arrested Development and Michael Cera and Jason Bateman are in it, it was pretty much an unspoken take-me-or-die situation).   cool

Sunshine:
The most incredible epic sheer awe-inspiring movie I've ever seen. The only problem is that weird creature-thing near the end and the slightly hollywoodized ending. It can be so beautiful at times you could cry. Already one of my favourite movies of all time. 10/10

Stardust:
Pretty decent, even though its a 'fantasy', its pretty typical hollywood. Decently made though, with a competent story. 8/10

I don't think it can be called Hollywood, it was all filmed in the UK I think, only a few big HW names appear in it, but it felt more British to me.  smile

Yeah, everyone knows Australia owns space.

Speaking of movies, i saw:

Shoot 'Em Up

 laff Oh Clive!

Whilst some movies have ridiculous action and try and make it believable, this movies says "Fuck you! This action is so ridiculous and unbelievable, but you are going to enjoy it! Cause it's awesome! Now watch this guy being killed by a carrot!"

A couple of movies I saw recently:

Black Book

Paul Verhoeven (Robocop, Total Recall, Showgirls, Basic Instinct, Starship Troopers) directed this World War II drama.  So before you start, you know it's going to be about as subtle as a baseball bat. 

However, I have to say that aside from his usual broad strokes of violence, sex and nudity, there's also a sensitive side to Verhoeven - all of which are evidenced in this flick.

The story is of Rachel Stein, a Belgian jew, in hiding in WWII, and trying to escape the Nazis - however, while trying to escape her and her family are ambushed by the Nazis and her family are viciously slaughtered.  She survives.  Making her escape to infiltrate (by way of hooking up with a resistance movement) a branch of the Nazi special division in The Hague, and shack-up with a Nazi General.

There are numerous twists, crosses and double-crosses which befall our heroine (as well as having a vat of human excrement dumped all over her), and the ending is something which is relatively satisfying considering the 2 hour ride we're taken on.

This movie is in Dutch, German and has bits of English, so it's fair to say that it's subtitled.

I'm not sure "enjoyed" is a word I would use to describe how I felt about this movie, but it certainly was compelling stuff, and the performances, especially from the lead, Carice Van Houten, are fantastic.

9/10

Perfume: The Story Of A Murderer

Another period piece.  This is the story of a boy born in 18th Century France, who has the most incredible gift of the most acute sense of smell, while yet producing no odour of his own.

He lives to become a Perfumer and develop the finest scents, however, his work takes a dark turn when he tries to preserve the scents of women, only he finds the only way he can achieve this is to murder them.

I found this movie interesting and compelling.  The lead performances by Ben Whishaw (only known to me as "Pingu" in Nathan Barley), Alan Rickman and Dustin Hoffman are excellent.  However, the ending was pretty unexpected, and for me, unsatisfying.


8/10

The Hotel Yorba video: with Blood and Cannibalism.

Great music.  Persistently funny, scary and disturbing without being imbalanced.  Depp as the tormented, stone faced and unrepentant Todd is brilliant.  Do see this movie.

Juno
Not enough Michael Cera. And was Jason Bateman supposed to be some pervy child molestor pervy perv? Seems like they were setting that up, but he never put his tongue in her vagina or anything, so I dunno. I couldn't stand Ellen Page at first, but she grew on me. After Hard Candy and the beginning of this film, I was ready to name her "least likable person ever." But she's okay.

Funny, I have the same reservations about the "Hard Candy" factor in Ellen Page's career.  She was that irritating in that movie, that it'll cast a shadow over other stuff she does... for me.

However, the Arrested Development contingent in this movie makes me wanna see it though.

Let it be known as AD cast-itis!

(I'm looking at you Stranger Than Fiction, "They're trying to put Baby Buster in a Will Ferrell movie!"  laff )

(Speaking of Tony Hale, he's in a movie called Ctrl Z, about a IT guy who undoes his lifes mistakes presumably with a magic keyboard, 7.7/10 on imdb!)

I am Legend

Yeah, it's a solid film. I could only repeat what most critics have already said: the abandoned NY looks cool, the 'creatures' on the other hand have 'CGI' written all over them.

Sure, one could complain that once again Hollywood has dumbed down an interesting story, but I guess that would achieve nothing.
