The Apparition - Curse me and my need to watch horror movies.


It wasn't unwatchable like it's score on Metacritic would lead one to believe, it was just boring and nothing new. It started off well though, and the movie should have been about either of the two opening "scares" that happened instead of what they did.

Saw the Avengers finally. pretty generic movie. entertaining but not as amazing as I kept hearing. Mainly laughed every single time Thor spoke(I haven't seen Thor) and mainly the entire thing just reminded me of a "modern" power rangers. Sigh, im getting old.

The Raid: Redemption

Great martial arts flick, moves look like they fucking hurt. It's realistic in that way, but it's also really ridiculous looking at how long the "boss" fights take. If you slammed my head into concrete I'd probably be done, just saying.

I liked it a lot. I enjoyed the books and thought the movie was well done. Very good casting etc.

I'll see that eventually. The marketing is putting a huge emphasis on the zombie aspect and I'm incredibly tired of zombies, so that killed a lot of my interest in it.

Whale Rider- It's a interesting movie that deals with family and tradition. Strong leading female. Worth a look if you want to escape a Hollywood like feel and have non whites being the main characters.

I can't take your opinion seriously.

Anyways, I watched The Change-Up yesterday expecting it to be pretty bad, but I actually really enjoyed it. I thoroughly enjoy Jason Batemen's acting and I'm actually a fan of Ryan Reynold's style of comedy, unlike a lot of people. Not to mention seeing Olivia Wilde is always a plus.

The Angel's Share- It's a new Scottish film. A funny comedy with a good small group of characters to keep track of. For us not used to the accent it is hard to understand half of the lines. Maybe it's best to watch on DVD at some point.

Saw the Day of the Dolphin. Written by Buck Henry, and starring George C. Scott and Paul Sorvino. I thought it would be like the Simpsons episode, but it was a pretty interesting movie until the end, as an evil plot is uncovered. The way the more "mature" themes were presented actually reminded me of Tron, since that dealt with something we're going to have to deal with in the future and any exploration of it had to be relegated to the "intense plot."

It's actually very well done. the Zombies are a relatively minor aspects. Almost in the sense of Walking Dead which isn't really about the zombies. It's about being different, bullying and I think we all know where that leads. In retrospect

Beetlejuice. If I treat it as a comedy, I thought it was fun. But a damn shame that Burton didn't utilize Keaton more, or at least in a slightly different capacity.

wait... it's not a comedy?

Tucker and Dale was pretty funny, totally turned that crazy hillbilly type of horror movie on it's head.

great movie0

Has anybody seen the new Total Recall? Is it a fun movie to go see? Most agree it isn't better than the first. But some are making out the first to be this cinematic masterpiece which I don't think it is. Any thoughts CAG's?

My little cousin liked it but she's never seen the original so it's not that her opinion is invalid. It's just that she can't articulate how good it is by comparison.


All classics from that era are served with a bit of cheese, the remake/ripoff better have actors be able to or willing to pull that off, if not, than I know its going to be a bad movie that I don't want to see.

Most classics from that era pretty much has 1 outlandish concept and everything logically flows after that 1 concept, no matter how rediculous it may be. It is up to the actor/actors that makes that 1 concept believable.

Highlander/Adventures in Babysitting/Coming to America/The Terminator/Die Hard/The Princess Bride/Willow/Back to the Future/Ghostbusters/Ferris Bueller's Day Off/Big Trouble in Little China/Gremlins


I dunno some of those movies hold up very well I think. They're outdated now like movies that center around character unable to contact each other because cell phones weren't around but some of those hold up very well. Die Hard I've seen more than a few times and I think it holds up cheeselessly as well as maybe The Terminator, and Back to the Future if I remember correctly.

Not everyone needs to look like a 16 year old girl cosplaying a 16 year old boy, every-Japanese-artist-ever.

Didn't like it at all. Expected a lot more from Soderberg, the cast and an 81% on RT. Found it boring, the action/fight scenes pretty lame etc.

Singin' in the Rain.
Lots of people keep thinking of the title song and can't for the life of them tell me what the hell the plot is about.

Gene Kelly is amazing, and he freakishly reminds me a little bit of Christian Bale in American Psycho. Too bad there aren't any actors like Mr. Kelly anymore.

I think it is a great film but as a modern viewer, I do find the musical numbers jarring and half of them seem like excess frosting, a point that even the actors in the movie referenced when talking about the Dancing Cavalier.

I'd recommend you watch it, especially since the only thing everybody knows about the movie is just that song that lasts a mere fraction of the time compared to the other numbers.

Huh? Most classics don't have musical numbers worked in like Singing in the Rain. I'm not huge fan of classics or anything, but plenty of great movies from back then like Citizen Kane, Casablanca, Hitchcock's films etc.

Didn't mean music only, much of it is cheesey. Pointing out the movies you named are the exceptions obviously.

I don't know that I'd agree that most old movies are cheesy either. Quaint maybe, as things were different back then both in society and in terms of what they could include in movies in terms of language, level of violence etc. than in the present.
