Considering there is a music thread, I figured why not start a movie thread? What are your favorites, what have you seen lately? what's good?

My favorites:
The Boondock Saints
Snatch
Layer Cake
Trainspotting
Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas


I forgot about that. I've seen it sooo many times, and each time you always seem to find something new about the movie.

Also "Fight Club" is one of my favorites.

Tiro
23rd March 2007, 03:00
hehe yeah, damn, the beginning cracks me up every time
'we can't stop here! this is bat country!' :lol:
that movie inspired me to get a ray ban aviator, classic model :P

actually, never seen fight club, dunno why, something always pulled me back from seeing it, might have been bratt pitt :lol:

A Clockwork Orange is a great movie as well. This thread is helping refresh my memory of movies I should watch again.

I just finished reading the book, which I found sooo much more F'd up than the film..
I guess I forgot to mention:
Dawn Of The Dead
Army Of Darkness
The Life Aquatic
The Royal Tenenbaums
Rushmore
Bottle Rocket...(anything Wes Anderson has done pretty much)

mml6691
23rd March 2007, 03:39
why did you find the book more twisted? because i completely agree with you. for me, it was the fact that he just goes back to how he really was, like the treatment hadn't even happened.

the book was better than the movie anyway

Gregory
23rd March 2007, 03:42
that and the language used made for a really uncomforable read (in a good sense) and yeah the book was much much better than the film, which was still good.
I find that with Irvine Welsh as well, Trainspotting was much better to read than to watch.

Tiro
23rd March 2007, 03:51
alot of people have that with books and movies...
myself personally, can't get myself to read the books because after like five minutes I'm getting nervous and want to do something else, short time attention span I guess...

I hope you guys realise it is based on a novel, i have every Hunter S Thompson book even tracked down a first edition Curse of Lono took ages but was worth it (its been reprinted now so and joe blow can get it ARRRHH!)

Deer Hunter
In the Bedroom
It's a Wonderful Life
American History X
My Grandpa (title translated from Japanese)
Wag the Dog

tiro -> no way, fight club is excellent, it is the original movie that's twist at the end was the main character is psychotic and he's friend doesn't really exist.
Brad pitt is one of the finest actors of our time: legends of the fall, babel, 12 monkeys, the devils own, interview with the vampire to name a few.

Im only gonna say one movie, and that is the BEST crime movie that has come out in the last 5 years -> The Departed

Fhunkit
23rd March 2007, 07:46
Aahw Fight club is a really good one!! I like the movie..
And MYnudies, I've got the Trilogy of Taxi (French) A few months a go I bought it in sale.. 7euros! ghehe 8)

8½, Stroszek, The Seventh Seal... I like a lot of old cinema. Best I've seen the last two or three years was proboly the constant gardener or Grizzly man. I enjoyed the departed very much but come on, best the last five years?! granted Leo DiCaprio is great and it's got the hongkong fast paace plot driven story that makes the movie experience superfun, but It lacks a lot of depth imo.

23rd March 2007, 09:50
blow

i love blow as well but not that many people rate it highly. It used to be really hard to get on DVD over here i scoured for months with no luck. My girlfriends ended up ordering it in for me cost here heaps!

And i think Brad Pitt is an excellent actor as well unfortunately he is also very attractive which means all the women go nuts and takes away from his ability a bit i think, same with Leo. The Departed easily the best movie last year, last five not so sure!

23rd March 2007, 14:52
I wait for Inland Empire from David Lynch to come in April. I love David Lynchs films. Inland Empire was partly shot in Poland, my homeland, so I am even more excited about a Lynch film, though I have heard that this film is even much more strange then his other films. We will see, I am looking forward to it.

ooh forgot about that one. I liked it too, but some of Vince Gallo's stuff is a bit on the pretentious side (have you seen Brown Bunny?) he's an amazing musician though, the 66' soundtrack is amazing.

Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy

I think that all three together made one decent movie. When looked at seperately, none of them seem to have a whole lot going on, not much character development, etc, etc...

Tiro
24th March 2007, 15:34
lord of the rings trilogy and star wars saga... damn! totally forgot those, specially star wars, the original three movies...

and guys, don't get me wrong, brad pitt is a good actor, I mean, I loved seven and interview with a vampire...
but I dunno, fight club is not really a movie I can place his face in...
I like character face more then pretty face people :P
same goes for johnny depp btw, great actor, a shame all the females are giving him a backstreet boy like fanbase :lol:

I think that all three together made one decent movie. When looked at seperately, none of them seem to have a whole lot going on, not much character development, etc, etc...

But, they really are one story--actually they need the Hobbit to make sense--and I think that is being made now--sort of out of order. But, from story, to acting, to sets and scenery, and music--LOR is tops! It's long, but I wish it had covered even more of the entire story in the books. (Maybe 7 films! :) )
There is no such thing as "greatest movie"--so, so many!

On of my favorites is the original 1973 version of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. That film is the ultimate in creepy! The way they tortoured that poor girl....it was almost like a snuff film in a way. Sorta gives you the shivers, lol.

This flick is perfect for movie night get-togethers.

what's wrong with it?

1. Tom Cruise
2. He doesn't die
3. It's just not a well made movie imho, the script is not too bad, they just did not make it in to what it could have been I think...

ExileOnMainStreet
12th May 2007, 19:53
the last samurai wasnt bad, its one of tom cruise's better films


blood diamond was excellent i saw that the other day

on satelitte the other day, i think it was TBS or something they had a steven segal marathon - he's so good in a bad way, they started off with the classics: hard to kill, above the law (nico toscani, bitch) and under seige then they went to the cheesier ones: under seige 2, exit wounds and glimmer man

http://www.fantasyfootballfiles.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/07/Steven-Segal.GIF


the real question being: who was more badass for their time - steven segal or jean claude van damme

the real question being: who was more badass for their time - steven segal or jean claude van damme

Take it from Stallone himself:

Van Damme was tired of Seagal saying he could kick his ass and went right up to him and offered him the chance to step outside so he could wipe the floor with him, or should I say wipe the backyard with him. Seagal made some excuse and left. His destination was some Ocean Drive nightclub in Miami. Van Damme, who was completely berserk, tracked him down and again offered him a fight, and again Seagal pulled a Houdini. Who would win? I have to say I believe Van Damme was just too strong and Seagal wanted no part of it. That’s just my opinion.

(You can find the full quote here, towards the bottom: http://www.aintitcool.com/?q=node/31032 )

13th May 2007, 12:51
I must add a couple more:

'Pan's Labyrinth', simply an incredible film. Del Toro should drop these big Hollywood productions he's been working on and stick with these more obscure treats.

Saw 'Tideland' the other day... WOW! This is the best thing Gilliam has done since 'Brazil'.

Jakob
13th May 2007, 13:36
It should also be considered that Van Damme often dances in an extremely gay way.


The biggest bad is Danny Trejo anyway. Mostly because he also is in real life. :)

I think David Lynch is a remarkable film maker, even though some of his stuff is hard to understand for the average viewer. Its exciting to see a movie that is open to interpretation. I would agree that some of his scenes are the most frightening I have ever seen. Just my opinion though. Some scenes in Mulholland Dr. and Lost Highway give me chills every time I see them. Can't wait for his new one Inland Empire to come out on DVD.
Some of my favorites:
Anything from Lynch.
The Godfather
The Machinist
Purple Rain
Apocalypse Now
2001: A Space Odyssey

Both masterpieces!!! HIGHLY recommended. The truman show might be the best Jim Carrey film, while Oldboy might be the best piece of Asian cinema together with Infernal Affairs, and even a little better.

Youre mixing them together :) I liked them too, I think... But to tell the truth i have never been so confused under a movie as when i watched LAdy Vengeance... The closet thing must be Sympathy for mr. vengeance actually... :D

I still haven't seen 'sympathy for Mr. vengeance' but hey I liked 'oldboy' and I liked 'sympathy for lady vengeance' also, so...
furthermore, when it comes to asian movies, 'castle in the sky' is a must see and offcourse his other movie also, 'spirited away' but haven't seen that one yet,

the most confused I have ever been with a movie was 'lost highway' but then again, Lynch ain't normal... :lol:

It's the movie that came out before Oldboy and Lady Vengeance. The story isn't connected with the other movies, but the theme (revenge) is the same. You should check it out on IMDB.

"Cut" from "Three... Extremes" by Park, is a great flick too. Way more gory than anything he has done else. Oh yeah, "Three...Extremes" rule.

I think David Lynch is a remarkable film maker, even though some of his stuff is hard to understand for the average viewer. Can't wait for his new one Inland Empire to come out on DVD.


In January I went to a showing of INLAND EMPIRE where David Lynch answered questions afterwards.

The movie was, well, the most complicated thing I've ever seen. Highly entertaining, but his explanations did very little to help it make any more sense. Next time I see it I'll probably be able to understand more of it.

He was a lot funnier than I expected.

thebigcomedown
22nd May 2007, 06:37
Wow, I'm so jealous: I wish I could have seen it in the theatre. yeah he does that with all his movies (at least the complex ones), he never will give any explanation or meaning to them. I think its great though: it makes it so much more interesting that there isn't some simple meaning behind it all. I heard Inland Empire is his most complex yet. Can't wait to see it. It was good they finally released the second season of Twin Peaks.

21st June 2007, 01:36
Last flicks I saw were...actually just one 28 Weeks Later. I thought it sucked everyone loved it over the original yet I love the isolated an alieness the first one had it made it more eerie. This was just all out gore fest with nothing shocking, scary or thrilling. The had some great scenes but overall seemed like a cheap way to cash in on the original.

Kinda makes sense since Danny Boyle didn't direct it.

His new film Sunshine looks really good for a sci fi flick. He's getting into some good stuff!

You mean you JUST NOW saw this movie?! Where have you been? This has to be one of Disney's best in a long time! My major was in animation and while I did my stint in 2D, (I'm a 3D guy) this is by far one of my most favourites. Most of my favourite 2D films are from Japan.

I love Stitch as well in fact I have a life sized statue of him in his space suit with all arms and guns weights about 60-75ibs and was only made for Disney's auctions out of only 250 made. He's one of my masterpieces in my collection!

Absolutely it was a great story which stemmed of course off the ugly duckling, but the animation and design was tops!

I did have pics he was injured during a shipment home and his antenna are cracked. Unfortunately I don't longer have the pics on my photobucket and he's back at my family's house. I'll have to ask them to snap some pics for me. He's like the biggest piece I have in my collection aside from a couple others that are just as tall but not as wide.

Well then I think I am asking the right person when I ask where could I find one of these beauties. I would love a bit of stitch memorabilia, but thus far on ebay, I have been swimming through a sea of smallish pins and unpleasantly breakable desktop porcelain figurines. Sigh...ebay is anything but reliable. :roll:

Ghost
25th June 2007, 08:27
I got lucky with my piece, a lady on ebay dealt with all things Disney and I was lucky enough to catch this one on her. She wanted $500 for it I offered $300 plus shipping and she accepted. They also had a lamp with Stitch in a capsule that lit up at the top and the bottom just like in the beginning of the movie. I never found that one again. Disneystore.com has a good selection of collectibles and a few of Stitch too actually. One as Elvis and another with his ukelele.

But ebay would be your best bet. Most retailers I know don't carry Disney stuff just cause it doesn't sell too much to the comic book and movie effects crowd either. But the Disney website is a good start.

Though my favourite of his is Mean Streets. Which in fact was De Niro's first movie in which he was fcuking intense and great! It's a must see. Starred Harvey Keitel and De Niro as his cousin I believe. It's a great flick. I can only hope they release it on HD DVD like Goodfellas is.

That said 30 Days of Night was pretty good. Stuck pretty close to the comic.

It's out though I personally being a huge fan of his don't think it's as good as his others and most ppl think Life Aquatic wasn't as good as his others but that one's my favourite. Royal Tennebaums and Rushmore are still considered among many as his best ones.

Definitely worth seeing. I mean being a big fan of his as I am, I'm still not that into Bottle Rocket his first. I still own it but just to have it really.

But Darjeeling is definitely worth seeing either way it's good.

Just went to see 'Into the Wild'. Good flick worth seeing once. Pretty solid adaptation of the book as well. But to forewarn you a lot of the movie is shot in the 'handheld camera' style so everything tends to be shaky.

Best movie I have seen recently was 'Superbad'. Terrific!

Bleak for maybe you guys over there. This year it's been great all around so far.

Eastern Promises was one of the best of the year I think with more to come.

Looking forward to Beowulf this week.

I spoke of 'Into the Wild' earlier in this thread which is a Jon Krakauer book which was adapted into a movie very well.

I wonder if Bill Bufford's 'Among the Thugs' would also be a great adaption into a movie. Great Football Hooligan book, although I know some English take issue with it being over the top. For those that don't know, it is not a fiction book. The author himself became one of the hooligans and spent 5 years (or something near that) gathering first hand info for the book.

A fine read and maybe a great movie!

Just saw "The Fountain" by Daron Arnofsky. Really great film, that really provokes a catharsis. A deep film for Arnofsky, he's got something really special going on in this one and intertwines some interesting spirituality. A great performance by Hugh Jackman surprisingly, He is actually a real person and you can feel his pain.

Good stuff

Ghost
13th November 2007, 08:48
I got the Fountain on HD as soon as possible. Saw it when it came out the first day as well. Possibly my fave of the last year. Brad Pitt was originally casted to star in it. I think Jackman was a way better choice. The graphic novel is quite a good read. And worth getting if you enjoyed it.

Science of Sleep is definitely one of my alltime faves. Though it doesn't help that my friends refer to me as the main character cause they all think I'm a kid still. Either way Michel Gondry is a GREAT storyteller.

His next movie Be Kind, Rewind with Jack Black and Mos Def looks really good about a couple of guys that run a video rental shop that suddenly wipe out all the movies on the tapes and so in order to not go out of business they film their own like 20 min versions of the movies and try to pass them off as the originals.

And don't forget he also did Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Another top favourite movie. He really is possibly my favourite director around right now.

definately want to see that new movie...
and, fun fact, all of the dreams that were told in The Science of Sleep are dreams that he really had..
and then he just made them awesome becuase he's the man.

Ghost
14th November 2007, 23:40
Definitely! Reminded me of how in Poltergeist many of the things happening were nightmares Spielberg had as a kid haha.

If you guys like Gondry's work, I highly recommend his Best of Director DVD by Palm Pictures which showcases all his music videos he's worked on as well as documentaries on him and other small films he's done. Awesome awesome work. I have the first 3 which was Best of Gondry, Spike Jonze, and Chris Cunningham who did those great Aphex Twin videos.

They made more from other directors but not as great in my opinion.

"No Country For Old Men"

Finally the Coens have redeemed themselves. I was getting tired of the quircky/offbeat projects that they've been doing for the past decade.

At last they're getting back into the style of film that made me fall in love with their work (remember "Miller's Crossing" and "Blood Simple"?).

Mr.Brooks is a pretty dope movie indeed. Though i would've found it better if the end was real, if you know what i mean ;-).

The movie makes me think of the show Dexter, which is one of the best shows around imo. The second season ended in november last year i think. But damn, that show's great!

i saw "cloverfield" last night, IT WAS SOOOOOO ******* BAD!! to all of you, DO NOT WATCH it if you have not!!

I thought Cloverfield was brilliant. If you can't follow a storyline without having it spoonfed to you, don't see it. If you're not willing to piece things together by yourself, don't see it. If you need every little thing wrapped up for you in the final scene, you should probably avoid it. If you don't know the basic premise of the movie, look it up before you make a decision, and realize that it's shaky cam and that if you get motion sickness you should take dramamine before you go see it.

Having said that, The entire story around the movie is amazing. It's incredibly complex, but most people won't take the time to realize that, because they expect it to be Godzilla with a new monster. I've never left a theatre wanting to go back and see the movie I just saw like I wanted to go see Cloverfield again. I've never gone home and thought about a film as much as I've sat around thinking about Cloverfield.

Basically, if you need everything handed to you on a silver platter, avoid the movie because you won't get it at all, and you'll just leave confused and angry.

If you do go see it, stay after the credits.

21st January 2008, 19:56
one more thing about cloverfield, it was sooo bad for me as the whole movie was filmed with a single person view just like play station games such as war games (medal of honor/rifle/etc) which made me somehow dizzy. i noticed that MANY people left way earlier when they were stuck in the subway station. at least, though i was bored and dizzy, i stayed 'till they were all dead. i wasn't expecting like godzilla or something, but at least try to make the story line more interesting or something. oh well.. i didn't enjoy it. first worst movie for me in 2008.

i have a good movie that i recommend here, "25th hour" that movie is awesomely good!!

I mentioned the fact that people were getting motion sick from the shaky cam(which is exactly what you just described above), which stems from a lack of foresight and research. Don't say that a movie is bad because you suffer from motion sickness and didn't do anything to prevent yourself from getting sick.

As for the "uninteresting" storyline, you probably know nothing of Slusho!, Tagruato or the Chuai Station incident, all of which have to do with the movie.
