Songs From the Second Floor
A really good movie that I will watch over and over. I've already ordered the DVD and will rent You, the Living as soon as I can.
The movie was strange and interesting from start to finish.
There is not an explosion, no gunfire and I don't think the camera moved even once.
It's must see for fans of films by Bergman, Tarkovskiy or Jodorowsky. Also seek out this film if you are looking for something different.
The Haunted Mansion
You have my sympathies.
'Argo', it starts off brilliantly but towards the resolution of the picture Affleck indulges in so many thriller cliches that it kind of takes away from the overall effect that the film had. Goodman and Arkin are terrific and I wish the film had spent more time with their characters.
I really disliked that movie .
The first part where they're ripping off Duel is pretty decent, but everything devolves into characters constantly making the dumbest decisions imaginable- which is saying a lot for a horror flick like this. Most horror flicks are allowed to have a character o two make one (maybe two) really dumb decision if it serves the plot. Here, they're constant. I was squirming in my seat when I saw it in theaters it was so bad.
Oddly enough, the sequel wasn't too bad.
searching for sugar man. god, what an incredible story. i'm not sure if it was the best of the oscar niminated docs, but definitely the most entertaining.
i also watched amour. i appreciate it as a powerful film about a subject that most filmmakers wouldn't touch, but man it was really hard to watch. riva definitely earned her best actress nomination but trintignant was robbed. his role was the much more emotionally complex of the two i thought.
Well, I for one, enjoy the Jeepers Creepers movies, but i will respect ur opinion on it
Quest and I have had this argument before. He's wrong; that's all it is.
And this dispute shall go on eternally. I will not give in to one of the worst theatrical experiences I've ever had!
yet you watched the sequel...
There was enough potential in the concept that I was willing to give it a second go with a different creative team behind it. Plus, horror films tend to have at least one sequel better than (or as good as) the original (though the further into a series usually the worse it gets), like ANOES3: Dream Warriors, for example.
Silver Lining Playbook, last night. Plan to watch Lincoln, Wreck-It Ralph, and The Impossible today.
Why don't you people actually review the movies you've watched? Otherwise this thread is just a list of movies. At least give us a line or two telling us if you liked the film or not. "Hitch" and "I plan to watch Lincoln" offer absolutely no insight into anything and make me immediately question why I clicked on the thread.
Don't mean to offend, calling it like I see it.
Never seen it actually.
The Woman In Black.It was okay,but every time I thought I thought it would get super scary,it would fall flat of my expectations.It had a lame ending as well.
the master. like most p.t. anderson films, i appreciated it but didn't really like it. very gutsy, oscar-worthy performance from phoenix, though i think it will go to day lewis who is equally deserving.
Grandma's Boy: I'm a terrible terrible person for admitting that I actually really enjoyed this movie and thought it was hysterical. Very strange since I hate mostly everything that Adam Sandler produces/stars in.
I thought this remake of the classic Broderick and chimps flick was pretty good. I don't remember so many breasts or partying for that matter in the original. Not complaining, just saying it shocked me. I didn't mind that they changed and went with a found footage shooting style for this one. I really put you in the middle of the action like you were there. Not a fan of them switching out all of the chimps for a single Yorkshire Terrier. 3.5/5
That's about right. I enjoyed the film but was ultimately disappointed. I found parts of it quite chilling, and the plot was rather gripping, but still it left me wanting something more. The final shot might have something to do with that feeling, since it was poorly rendered and rather obvious CGI, which is the death of fright.
It was a Morgan Spurlock documentary about male vanity, grooming, etc. There's an awesome bit about beards and moustaches in it.
@DarthTunick you need to see this.
