I looked for a thread to post my movie going experiences in, but alas, my search ended in failure. So I decided to make a thread where we can talk about watching movies, making movies, and other stuff like that I guess (no porn though ).

Over the weekend I watched Blade Runner. It was very... 80's. Which isn't bad, because Racer X and Cacophony were both in the 80's.

There have been several "Only Movie Threads". For the most part, they've failed.

Kudos to you if this works.

i just saw WALL-e tonight. it was aboslutely incredible!


Was it really? I've always had a special place in my heart for Pixar movies. I don't care if they're for a younger audience, they are just so incredibly well made.

I hope you are joking.... because Transformers was a joke.

michael bay should come out with a movie called "The Explosionist"

and its a guy with superpowers that just blows stuff up and looks cool

i would watch it

I loved Wall-E. It was no major breakthrough in terms of storytelling or plot devices or anything like that, but it was a Pixar movie in a setting I liked with characters I liked, so I really enjoyed it.
#11
When I saw The Strangers (Terrible movie BTW) the guy behind me would scream at every "jump" scene. At the end of the movie I looked back and he looked like he was in his 30's and there he was cowering like a child. Good times...
#12
surprisingly, Kung-Fu Panda was really good. Some kinda discreet dirty jokes that little kids don't understand but are perfectly understandable to me Honestly though one of my favorite movies of all time is TOMMMY BOY. RIP Chris Farley

As was Wanted. Never had a dull moment...awesome film

ehh thought it was a tad over-the-top in terms of trying to be cool.
the break-into-the-factory scene was like equilibrium lol. great scene.
too much curving-bullet **** though

Wasn't great but I laughed a fair amount. Though they missed quite a few opportunities for hilarity.

Man Tommy Boy is a classic. Chris Farley + David Spade = one of the greatest on-screen duos of all time.
#16
thats right....tommy boy was pure comedic genius...i've had people tell me that beverly hills ninja was funnier though. i've never seen the movie before, so i can't give a fair judgement. i think the blues brothers is a pretty close second though. i now pronounce you chuck and larry was really funny too....i love comedy

Gotta say I'm a ganster film kinda guy. I just watched the Departed for like the 10th time. Scorsese is a god to me.

EDIT: And your friend knows nothing about movies if he says Beverly Hills Ninja was better than Tommy Boy.

Ya but I thought alot of the things they tried to do actually were pretty cool at the time. For example the keyboard incident that was just badass IMO. But yes, they pretty much raped the idea of curving the bullet. But the factory scene was ****ing sick except a little tacky that guns appeared wherever and whenever he needed em

thats what i say. at my school i have a group of friends that have decided the answer to all questions that you don't know the answer to is tommy boy

it really was fantastic. I'm like you, regardless of their intended audience/age group, I have always had a soft spot for pixar (having absolutely fallen in love with toy story when i was younger).

WALL-e was marvelously done. Good plot, one of the most truly loveable characters i possible think of, great supporting characters, and nice use of humor to allay rather darker moments. I actually think that, of the pixar films, this was one of the most mature and arguably the best. I am almost 20 years old, yet found myself captivated watching this lonely little robot putter around a deserted planet and fall in love with another robot, the first other creature (?) he has encountered in hundreds of years aside from his trusty little sidekick (a cockroach). In the theater I was in, younger children were easily the minority, outnumber by people my age and older (not just parents though)

I rented Persepolis tonight. Beautiful animation, overall great movie. I highly recommend it if you don't mind reading subtitles.

I thought the same thing. Actually, I'm convinced that the entire movie was made only to advertise as much junk as possible.

GM, RadioShack, Microsoft, Nokia, Mountain Dew, Panasonic, the list goes on...

i honestly never saw transformers out of spite. story: i was walking out of a movie last summer and saw these 3 guys standing around the cardboard cutout advertisement in the lobby and RIGHT when i walked by one of them, in the most nasaly, high pitched, lispy nerd voices i've EVER heard goes "Hey look guys! TRANSFORMERS!"

I recently watched Dr. Strangelove and Goodfellas while under the influence of God's Gift (strain). I had seen both films many times before, but not in a long time. These past two times were incredible.

Why are you apologizing? Strangelove, 2001, and Full Metal Jacket are all superior to A Clockwork Orange.

I dunno, I didn't really seem to like it. Then again, I didn't exactly give it a fair chance. The only time I watched it was at about midnight as I was trying to go to sleep. I'll probably re-rent it one of these days and give it a non-distracted viewing.

I watch The Boondock Saints for the first time about a week or two ago. If you haven't seen it you must.

The speech at the end is ****ing amazing. Those are the only two words to describe it.

It's a decent movie, but it ties with Donnie Darko for being the most overrated movie of all time. I blame Hot Topic for that...

that speech is intense. For a philosophy & ethics class I wrote my term paper on the speech - how it related to moses' sermon on the mound and if vigilantism is justified. epic scene

because, there are a ton of people on this website who believe that clockwork orange is the best movie ever created . it's a good movie, but still.

you should. strangelove is the funniest movie that couldn't be made at the time. while watching it, think about how tense the situation was and how disrespectful and rude (in a funny way) it is to the legacy of the cold war. every time someone brings up that subject, strangelove is something i always think about.

I loved it.

I was kind of dragged to see it, but really enjoyed it. I would have loved it if it had ended differently, but it wouldn't have been kid friendly (hope I didn't give up too much).

And my viewing conditions were exactly the same.

I didn't really like No Country for Old Men. I can see why it won the Best Picture Oscar, but I spent most of the movie waiting for it to be over. Am I alone in thinking that it might have been better with more of a score?

On a more positive note, I just watched Citizen Kane a few days ago, and I loved every second of it. That movie deserves its fame. (I did, however talk to an older friend, a little younger than my mom, who hadn't heard of Citizen Kane or "rosebud," which I found a bit odd. Then again, I have classmates who haven't ever heard of Darth Vader.)

I loved loved loved No Country. It kept my attention really well, and it had a great story with great characters. I think a score would have actually taken away from the movie. The lack of score gave it a rustic and real feel.

Never heard of Darth Vader???

I'm afraid to see that because I know it's going to be the same old ****ty action movie with little plot and just a bunch of stuff blowing up.

The only character I really liked was Chigurh. (Though I didn't care for the movie, I thought Javier Bardem was fantastic in the role and deserving of his Oscar.) I think the overall rustic and real feel might have deterred me from the movie more than anything. Go figure.

You have no idea...
