I'd say so. All 3 versions(2 movies and the book).


What about the awesome 2 part made for TV movie? Fucking love that and it definitely had dark parts. Jaberwocky in that movie was scary as hell for a young me.

Its too bad you're still a prick with a stupid gimmick.

The only thing dark about the Burton version was that it was complete shit.

Tim Burton is really good at shitting on established franchises, minus Batman.

Pretty much. That movie is far from great. It had next to no story, it was just showing off 3D the whole time.

I saw it in 2D which made the whole movie stupid as hell.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community. 

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

I agree, at least with batman all he did was fart on it.

I saw The Dreamers today in theaters. There is a film festival in Prague this week showcasing old, older, really old, and new movies that have yet to have or won't have a wide release.
As for the film in question. I liked it. It certainly challenges the intolerant viewers which I'm always a fan of. It's a somewhat twisted film that deals with 3 college aged adults. A twin brother and sister who have a strange dependance on each other as well as being sexually creepy. Then the third man who is a new found friend. Parents leave town and the twins invite the third man to stay for a week of odd, twisted shenanigans.

Finally got around to watching Dredd on blu-ray. It was a lot better than I expected. Karl Urban was pretty dam awesome as Dredd. The story was simple but effective and was really gritty which I think suits Dredd more than what the Original movie did with the character. Definitely recommend but if you are a little squeamish be warned there are plenty of slow mo gunshots and heads being caved in.

Audition - 1/5 - Made very little sense, and the shock factor was rather dull. Largely forgettable performances, as well.

Seven Psychopaths. I thought it was pretty good.


I really liked the first half or so of it. I really wanted to love the movie (reminded me of Snatch, one of my favorite movies ever), but I thought it was weak after the reveal.

Yeah, I have no idea how that movie even gets mentioned in best horror movie lists. It's not scary, nothing is really going on. It's dragged out.

Alice in Wonderland was dark?


For a PG rated film, yes it was a pretty dark film. Especially when compared to Oz...and almost any other PG rated film since there has been a PG-13 rating.

Day two of the movie festival.
Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence- This is sort of a little mini dream come true to me. Never thought I'd see this on the silver screen. Happy I did. The movie is about British soldiers being detained by the Japanese in 1942. It shows a clash of different cultures and how they try to function in this current situation. And hey David Bowie is in the film. Always have been a fan of the main theme which sounds great outside the movie as well as when it is sparingly used for specific scenes in the movie.

Audition works on the basis of misdirection. Starts off as a potential romantic comedy. Ends up somewhere completely different. There are a bunch of ways to do horror. For example, Silence of the Lambs isn't scary either, but it's still a great horror film.

Rather than going for scares this went for being disturbing. It works especially well considering the initial romance overtones of the first half of the film. If you can't deal with that setup, you'll hate the rest of the film. Watch it with your parents or someone who doesn't usually watch horror and see how the film affects them. In randomly showing it to people when I first came upon it, a lot of people had really bad reactions to watching how the story turned out.

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone was good if you like Steve Carrell. Think this was funnier from him than a chunk of his other movies. But the movie is pretty much what you would expect it to be. Trust your instincts with this movie.

Sat down and watched two movies:
Queen of Versailles, as recommended by CheapyD last month. I thought it would be something like you would be forced to feel sorry for the 1% or something, but I pity them. That husband really does have problems in expressing his emotions. I was also really shocked at the dog poop all around the house, jeez toilet train why don't ya? The oldest was a lazy prick, at least the 12/14 year old was shaping up.

Men in Black 3- I actually liked it, minus most of the action sequences. The relationship between the two leads could've been worked on a little more, but I thought it was fine. Jemaine Clement was the highlight, and I felt sad that Emma Thompson was underutilized.

The dog shit is because they have nannies and housekeepers for everything. Why train them? I remember that happening on the Osbournes in their mansion all the time. They treat pets like toys.

I did feel bad for them though. I just read that they resumed construction on the house last month.

Moonrise Kingdom-4/5
Really liked it, felt very Wes Anderson-ish. Got a bit weird in the middle, but otherwise I really enjoyed it:D would recommend to people that like weird of tilter stuff like Submarine and Fantastic Mr Fox

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

After having seen Hot Fuzz a billion times, I finally watched Shaun of the Dead.

Would probably have liked it more if I didn't hate every single character.
