The Social Network

I loved the trailer for this, and to be honest, I loved the actual movie as well. Went to see it last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. There's some good laughs (a lot of which only me and my flatmate seemed to be laughing at) and some pretty darn good acting. It's pretty captivating, and I just overall really liked it.

It wasn't perfect, however, so I'm giving it an 8/10

Toy Story 3 was boring.
DEATH BY MONKEYS!


Anyhoo,
The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
I'd never watched it the whole way through, just bits and pieces over the years.
A prequel to the two Dollars titled films with the same Man With No Name character, (although in this one Tucco, aka The Ugly, calls him Blondie).
Blondie himself has no real backstory, only Tucco seems to have some sort of past, but all three guys get involved in a hunt for buried gold.
Best shootout ending ever really, badass cinema at it's finest.

A+

Easy A

Good teen movie. It was funny, witty, and roughly the best interpretation of a high school on film that I've seen in a while.

I want Stanley Tucci to be my dad.

Unthinkable
Samuel L. Jackson plays a torturer brought in to get the location of 3 nukular bawmbs placed in US cities by Michael Sheen (Wesley from 30 Rock!)
Carrie Anne Moss is an FBI agent simultaneously investigating where the bombs could be while Yusef (Sheen) gets his bits chopped off and electrocuted and then waterboarded, and she plays the conscious role in the film saying oooh torture's terrible, but I guess we need it to get the bawmbs!
The "unthinkable" part comes when the time is almost up and they still don't know where the bombs are and it's deliciously evil and a great role for Jackson.
Pretty intense moral-ey thriller.

That's what I was thinking of as well.

It Came From Hollywood
Seeing as how this is the Halloween season, this is appropriate.  This movie, which came out in the early 80's, is (IMHO) the best spoof movie of all time.  Cheech & Chong, along with a cast of SNL and Second City stars, hilariously spoof the really bad 1950's sci fi films which include bad insect fear films, men in gorilla suits, aliens, monsters, mutants, drug films, city confidential type films and they even have a special segment devoted to the worst film maker of all time, Ed Wood.  Very funny, and also an amazing retrospective of the 1950's film making era.  

9/10

I remember that, my parents had it on beta and we would watch it all the time! That tells you how old it was it was on beta.

I agree.  I thought it was going to be 90 minutes of "you stole my idea" and maybe an appearance of "Wanna see my Farmville?" somewhere along the line, but I have gotten positive feedback so far.  Guess I will have to see it.

No, I just think a movie about Facebook/the guy who made a website is the stupidest most uninteresting idea for a movie ever. But hey, I guess you can make a good movie out of anything.

Werewolves: The Dark Survivors
2 hour long film, shot in a faux documentary style, about the lives of werewolves & how they fit into modern society, as told by a forensic scientist & a cop who are trying to solve a string of murders in a small town area.  Interesting if you're into the legend, or want to make sense of the myth.  About the only thing that held my interest was 2 short pieces of video "evidence", which are very realistic.  Overall, it was marginal.

6/10

A Fistful of Dollars
Western remake of Akira Kurosawas Yojimbo with Clint Eastwood as the stranger who wanders into a quiet town and discovers two rival gangs making the place miserable and full of dead guys so he sets about setting themselves against each other.
The little similarities like Clint scratching his beard just like Mifune did in Yojimbo (cos of fleas apparently) were fun to try and spot.

Don't forget the really crappy Bruce Willis version of this, set in the 1920's-30's.

Scott Pilgrim vs The World
Cheesy, nerdy, entertaining, humourous, nice visuals.
Michael Cera not as annoying with good supporting cast, even Ann from AD! (her?)
Some cute gurls in it too.

The Pikes Peak Center hosted a screening of Psycho with a live orchestra put on by the Colorado Springs Philharmonic for the film's 50th anniversary. It cost me 50 dollars for last minute tickets and no one would go with me, but it was absolutely worth it. The film was beautiful, just everything was so amazing. It's the kind of film and atmosphere like the one I saw tonight that makes me want to seriously study film in college.

They did the same thing in St. Louis.  Tickets were $20-$50 depending on where you were sitting.  Amazing show.

Did you see it yet? What did you think? The whole "let's make a movie about something that only just happened yesterday" seems a bit... wtf? to me. It really isn't some kind of massive event in the history of the world. OMG, YOUNG PERSON DISCOVERS YOU CAN CONNECT TO PEOPLE ON THE INTERNETZ AND MAKE MONIEZ?! WHEN DID ZIS HAPPIN?@1
Yeah, I haven't seen it, and I don't have any inclination of seeing it in the near future. Seems silleh.

I've decided I'll see The Social Network when it gets to my TV (movie channels).  Due to the positive reviews I've heard, I'll see it.  But I'm not about to spend $15 to go and see it.  I'm still not that excited.

I know there were some awesome explosions and stuff but I felt the storyline and the characters were rather weak.

Yeah, I was never overly attached to the characters, but I don't think that was the point. If I wanted to get absorbed into some soppy storyline I'd go watch a chick flick, alone, so I can cry and laugh along with the characters like a jackass.

A prequel to the two Dollars titled films

Although there's no direct evidence that the character in each of the three films is actually supposed to be the same man, aside from the trademark poncho and cigars. I like to think he is.

It's my favourite film of all time. Greatest musical score in cinema history too. Although the Mexican stand-off usually comes off as a trite cliché, the Dollars trilogy turns it into high art.

I read the best summary of Fight Club the other day. Gives very little away, and at the same time accurately describes the entire film whilst managing to be total nonsense at the same time. It's only four words long too.
