Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Just saw District 9 and all I can say is "wow." Best movie I've seen in a long. The special effects are great but the actual story takes you on an emotional roller coaster and actually gets you to see humanity from a different perspective. Can't wait for the sequel.

I watched it last night too. Pretty good, but I didn't love it as much as you did. Agree that the effects were pretty awesome.

What'd everyone think of Avatar? The best way I've heard it described was "Dances with Wolves with Blue People"... I thought it was a pretty good flick, but the special effects/3d was the whole reason for seeing it. The story was kinda "meh.."

Unbelievable movie. The special effects were so good, it kind of took over the movie. The story was pretty good, but i was so in awe over the 3D special effects it's hard to really focus on the story.

It's a must see for any movie fans. Before i went to see the movie i read one critic call it the future of filmmaking. He was right.

I loved the movie in 3D. It might be one of the coolest movies i've ever seen.

Really? I've heard from several people that the dialogue and story are pretty weak and dumbed down, but the effects made up for it.

Now if you just aren't a fan of Matthew McConaughey this isn't for you. In my opinion though this is the raunchiest character that he has played yet.
I like Matthew {hes a redskin fan} but I'm starting to get a little tired of his schtick,he seems to be the same guy in every movie{romantic comedies anyway}
Just watched "Moon" with Sam Rockwell,I had never heard of it or seen a trailer till I saw it on Flixster{iphone app} yesterday,good movie,2 thumbs up.In the previews before the movie they had a trailer for Black Dynamite,that looked like it would be pretty good also

Lol,I just snapped that under my name it says"just livin" a Matthew Mc qoute from "Dazed n Confused". Thats one of my all time favorite movies.If you havent seen it I recommend it.If you have seen it,the shit with the paddles is true,I was this close to it happening to me,but they pretty much did away with it the year before I became a freshman.{I graduated in 1980 from a small Texas town,Bridge City,Matt Bryant the kicker graduated from there

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

bought inglorious bastards a few weeks ago, finally got to watch it the other night.

im a huge tarantino (sp?) fan and heard good things about bastards but it didnt meet my expectations.

one of the problems i had was reading the subtitles. the yellow coloring placed on teh bottom of the picture screen instead of the letterbox made it hard to read for about half the scenes. and i watch alot of subtitle movies.

the plot fizzled for me too.

oh well.

I was thinking about that -- there's a group of actors right now who seem only to play themselves, i.e., Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston, and even Jack Nicholson -- they all seem to take the same role over and over.

As for "Moon" that looked interesting too, but then I saw one of the trailers and it looked like they basically gave away the surprise... I hate it when they do that.

Watched hurt Locker, awesome movie a must see.

for our MW 2 fans there are a lot guns in the movie that are in the game, kind of neat. I am not big into guns so if I didn't play MW 2 would not know half of them.

Also there is a small Redskin's cameo, see if you can spot it.

You know as much as I love guns in video games, I have zero interest in shooting them for real. By the way I'm loving the ACR right now. It's a beast.

Been looking forward to Hurt Locker for a long time. Got it last night and i wasn't disappointed. Very good "war" flick. Obviously, it's a very tense, suspenseful movie. It's a must see.

Basterds was one of my favorite movies of the year. Excellent movie. One of the best of the last decade imo.
