I'm gonna see that movie soon but it looks okay...

I dont know if this has been discussed but the movie Requium(sp?) for a Dream was the most moving movie I've ever seen. See this movie and you'll be off heroine forever.

And another movie that was a must see...American History X. It makes you take a different look at people you might have thought were total ass holes.(maybe)

I doubt that if you're stupid enough to ignore the myriad of other obvious reasons as to why you shouldn't use heroin, watching a movie won't help.

I watched Igby Goes Down at a friend's place last night. T'was OK, despite possessing a non-existent plot. Come to think of it, I can't really remember how it ends. Stupid vodka...

I watched Identity last week. It was a nice movie, with good acting and a decent screenplay, but nothing special nor truly scary.

Thats true, but if you were ever considering using heroine it'll make you think twice about it.

The Last Samurai

Apparently, if Kurasawa wrote/directed Dances With Wolves.  Having never seen Dances With Wolves, I can't really confirm that.  The battle sequence would make me say "as if Kurasawa did Braveheart."  More enjoyable than Kill Bill in every way. 

And if you want hot naked asian/Tom Cruise sex, you'll be sorely disappointed.

Its spelt Heroin. The way your spelling is a reference to a hero status.

Videodrome
My favourite film from David Cronenberg. I saw this when I was young, and was interested with his films since.

Videodrome raises issues with reality being intertwined with video and televisions' effect on society. Many people have discussed the philosophy behind the film - as with many intepretations of it. Though the real answer would lay with Cronenberg himself - but you could make of it what you will, as with any film.

Its more than satisfies the gore fans, as with cult-film fans. I found it to be very enjoyable and its one of those films you watch once, it stays in your mind.

yeah but it really turned me on to girl on girl action.

Does the Cat in the Hat actually say "Son of a bitch?" cause if he does then I don't think I need any more reasons why anyone who likes this movie ought to be shot.

What's not to love about a movie with a guest appearance by Deborah Harry's breasts?  I don't even really want to use brain space remembering that.  I didn't like videodrome at all.

Really? i hated that movie. The only thing about that film that i liked was the music. The theme is so awesome Lord of the Rings hyjacked it and made it their trailer theme.


And yes Velour, Cat really does say "son of a bitch" They bleep him though. He also picks up a garden impliment and refers to it as a 'dirty hoe' And his phunometer called Dakota Fanning a serial arsonist.

Finally! Someone else who hates Requiem for a Dream! I personally don't get "the big meaning" behind it. To me at least, it just seemed completely average and uninteresting.

The Last Samurai

This movie was a lot better than I thought it would be, after seeing the trailer several times and never failing to laugh.

Pros: It's involving, well shot and well acted, especially by the supporting Japanese guy.

Cons: Hanz Zimmer's score is adequate, but I could detect themes from his two best scores - The Thin Red Line and Gladiator - at several points through the movie. He's starting to sound the same. But the biggest con is:

I found the movie funny, I laughed really hard at times. That said, the performances are really lacking (especially that Sean William Scott) And sometimes excessively disgusting (I mean, people eating dog's crap, that was just too much)But is still a nice comedy.

It was kinda funny. It didn't have the flair of the original 2 it just was entirely too forced. The first 2 had class and you believed that these cracked-out situations would actually happen...... but because of the artistical direction of the director of "How High" it ruined the entire flow of the story... which might have worked... I give it a C-. Slightly below average.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life... but then again... so was yesterday... and look how you screwed that up.

As a birthday present, I took my mum to see Love Actually on Thursday.

Definitely a British film, made by British, for British.

Apparently it was made by the makers of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill and Bridget Jonesí Diary according to the previews and I'm glad they told me, otherwise I would have frankly never have guessed so. I would have just gone away from the film thinking "Hey, that reminds me a hell of a lot of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill and Bridget Jonesí Diary, it even has Hugh Grant and Colin Firth again!
That may seem a bit negative, and it is. The film was just as lovey-dovey as the three before it, but not as good. The script ended up okay but started very weak. Of course, without narative, a character and his or her past can only be established by what they do or what people say about them, but there were several points that it seemed that the script made an issue that would not actually ususally creep into a conversation, sometimes never. As Mark Hamill said of some of his lines in Star Wars: "Who the hell would say this stuff!?!"
Mum said the film risked becoming too sugary on several occasions.
I would also use the term "Cheesy"
However, there is fun to be had watching it, there are several extremely funny moments and at points the film poses some pretty thought provoking issues - plus there are several nice and clever twists in it too. But at points the film just doesn't string together well. It's approach is rather a la Three Hundred Big Boys which is a refreshing approach but has to be executed carefully, and it doesn't always work.

Overal I'll give it a C.
Unfortunately it just doesn't really work on every level. Go along planning to not take it seriously at all and you'll really enjoy it but probably completely miss several points raised by it, treat it as a serious film though and you'd feel let down by the lack of realism in some cases.

Tricky.

Also watched Pirates of the Caribbean and Terminator III too.

PoC was pretty heavy for a Disney backed film, but was very enjoyable and very well done all the same. Fine acting all the way through, though we spent most of the film thinking "Who the hell plays Jack Sparrow and where does he think he comes from!?!" until it turned out that he had gone slightly mad so it excused him, then we learnt it was Johnny Depp (of course!) and all was forgiven. One thing that got me was Norrington - who appeared you average snobbish, arrogant Brit who I expected to die in order to allow our heroes to live happily ever after, but he doesn't die (The Brits actually win too!  big grin ) and it turns out that really he's a "good man" in fact - and in the deleted scenes he actually turns out to be a very nice man actually, just duty bound that's all.
Jonathan Pryce played Jonathan Pryce-in-a-wig, but then I would gladly pay to watch him talk about his day at the shops to be honest  smile

A-

Terminator was not a patch on the previous two, but was still a very good film, well done, and in my mind the twist at the end was done very well indeed.

Certainly open for more sequals with or without Arnie in it as he himself said.

During the time The Matrix Revolutions came out, i decided to watch all 3 films in a row(seeing Revolutions after watching the other 2 on DVD). Here's my breakdown.

The Matrix:

Still a classic. Haven't seen in long time. Some new things I noticed than my last 7 viewings of the film. The effects still hold up today. Hope they do a brand new transfer on DVD.

Score: 10/10

The Matrix: Reloaded

Seen this 4 times in theaters and now on DVD. The film raises intresting questions. I had some problems with the film (Cough! Sex Scene! Cough!) But the effect are great and the story was a very involving one. The repeated viewings helped me enjoy the film even more.

Score: 9.8/10

Now, here comes the big one.

The Matrix: Revolutions

I saw this film the day it came out (IMAX baby!). I must saw I was amazingly dissapointed with this one. I liked it, but I didn't love it. Mabye it was because I knew what was going to happen. Note to self: When a big movie like this comes out, don't go to internet Message Boards. I also didn't understand some of the film and the pacing was a bit off. I then did the Matrix weekend and when seeing the first, second and then the Third. I understood it. Every problem I had with the film disappeared. I loved every scene and peice of dialouge (Especially Smith's "Why" speach). The ending was more incredible than before. The music was the thing that drove the movie, especially during the action scenes(Neodammerung: Awesome!). Then I saw the film a third time just to make sure I wasn't going nuts and I was wrong, The film was still great. An excellent conclusion(?) to the series.

Note: Actually, I hope they make another sequel.

Score (1st Viewing): 7.9/10
Score (2nd Viewing): 10.5/10(yep, that good)

Final Score on the whole Trilogy:

10/10

Willard
1971
Directed by Daniel Mann


An original 70's horror flick that focuses on a typical nerdy guy named 'Willard' who keeps a rat named 'Ben' in his basement. Willard and 'Ben' then leads an army of violent rats on a road to murder & destruction.

A great horror flick, and rather original from its time. Low on gore, but picks up the slack from the fear it generates.

The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King
I loved this movie! Though it was 3 and a half hours long, there was not one scene where I was bored or disappointed. It was definately the best one of the trilogy. This movie proved that a trilogy can be perfect. I hope other studios and directors will see this movie and realize how bad most of their lame-ass sequels are compared to this. I can't wait to see this thing again!!!

Did I mention I saw Mystic River? Yeah, it was good. I liked how the characters were all poor, and stuff. Movie/TV characters are always so rich, with big fancy houses and no money problems. These people seemed real--the kind of people who pack the house full of people, and the guys sit on the back porch drinking beers from a cooler.

It turns out that they were all murderers, though. Oh well, it was still a good movie.

Return Of The King:
Oh my great good god!
Peter Jackson is my new hero and I'd back him instead of George Lucas now!
The nazgul shrieks, the Battle of Pelannor Fields, Gandalf beating Orcs upside the head with his staff, Gollum, it's all too much for me!!
This movie wowed me and brought out a few emotions and it's my favourite film of the year.
The extended edition of this film will rock so much, I can't frickin' wait.

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

First, I'm gonna get my nitpick out of the way: I miss Christopher Lee.

Now then, I have otherwise nothing but raves for this film!  The battle sequences were amazing, the characters were awesome, and although (as I previously said) I do miss Christopher Lee, they cut him out in such a way that still provided closure.

2nd best film I've seen all year (It's below Kill Bill, but above Finding Nemo).  And if anyone reading is involed in the nominating process for any sort of award, don't forget to at least consider Sean Astin!  He's amazing in this film (well, he was in all three, but it's most noticable here).

The only film in the trilogy I plan to see again in the theaters (but this time, I won't get a large Dr. Pepper...)

Final Score: *****

Belated review of "Pirates of the Carribean: Curse of the Black Pearl"

It was a Disney movie, it was based on a theme park ride. And yet, somehow, it didn't suck. Maybe because this time they actually made a movie and not a vehicle for pushing the Disney name.

Aw, you just know theres going to be a wave of LOTR: ROTK praising.

*Puts on hard-hat*

Cabin Fever
Quick review; Eli Roth has done a good job at trying to resurrect the 70's slash & dice blood-horror scene with this. Though errors can occur with this type of genre, its a close attempt. The dialog run alittle thin towards the end but the unexpectant of main characters dying without dramatic death scenes, thats a big plus. All-in-all, its a nicely directed homage to 70's horror flicks.

Bad Santa

God, I love Terry Zwigoff.  I mean seriously, within the short span of three films (Crumb, Ghost World, and this one) he's become one of my all-time favourite directors.

Anyway, Billy Bob Thornton does a brilliant job (in a role originally intended for Bill Murray) as the most dispicable department-store Santa/profesional safecracker you've ever seen (assuming, of course,  you've even seen one before).  Tony Cox and Futurama's own Lauren Tom are his partners in crime (Tony's Santa's elf, Lauren's the getaway driver).  Every Xmas, BB and Tony get a job at a different department store, and rob it after closing on Xmas eve.

Due to circumstances I can't quite describe, BB winds up living with a kid whose mom's dead, his dad's "adventuring in the mountains" (read: in jail) and whose Grandmother who babysits him is one movement shy of comatose.  This kid worships Santa, almost to the point of stalking BB.  It's not so much a father-figure type thing as it is a leech/swimmer type thing.

If you've ever wanted to see Santa drink 'till he pukes, or have @$$sex with women in dressing rooms, or swear more than Sam Kinison on a bad day, or beat a kid to a pulp because said kid gave a black eye to BB's pint-sized stalker, or if you want to speculate on how scarred the child extras will grow up to be, or if you're just sick and demented (yo) this movie's for you.

Or if you want to laugh, and you weren't put off by all that was just described, c'mon down.  One of the best films of the year, with great support by Bernie Mac, Lauren Graham & Cloris Leachman, and a terrific final performance by John Ritter.
