the plot fizzled for me too.

oh well.
It wasnt nearly as gory as i thought it was going to be,I thought there would be more Germans tortured and bloodied.I'm not dissapoiinted that there wasnt,just surprised.
I know most movies are fiction but i couldnt get past the ending {SPOILER ALERT!!} since you know who doesnt really die in real life

Same here I don't like things around me that cause instant death. You know guns, rattle snakes, great white sharks, etc...

basterds was a good movie and im going to watch it again but it wasnt in the same class as the kill bills, dogs, pulp fiction etc.

the jew bear scene had intensity and tarantino drew out the tension really nicely like the underground bar scene. but idk man, it just didnt register as high of a level with me as tarantinos past movies.

and i do need my eyes checked, had my left eye smashed in and reconstructed so when ever im watching a game or movies with subtitle i cant read the score and all that annoying stuff.

i figured basterds was a sure fire movie for me so i bought it before seeing it, dont know how i came away alil disappointed.

i normaly stay away from the avatar-transformer type movies but you guys have piqued my interest.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Book of Eli was pretty entertaining- flawed, but looked cool (Hughes brothers have a really keen sense of style).

The better version of this film was my favorite movie of 09- The Road.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Avatar was simply awesome. I think I saw it around Christmas day and I want to see it again at an IMAX.

Up In The Air was a great flick too. Great storyline. George Clooney might get an Oscar nod for this one.

Also there is a small Redskin's cameo, see if you can spot it.
just finished watching it,yeah I spotted the redskins poster.
The ending kind of threw me,did that guy reenlist again?
as far as the movie goes,war is hell,so glad i'm not over there.Cant thank the soldiers enough who put their life on the line to do that shit

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

The preview sparked flashbacks and PTSD. It will take me some time to watch that one. Minus some obvious flaws it looks pretty good.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

tomorrow, MLK, is my day off but no one else in my household has it off and my son's daycare is open. It maybe my favorite holiday, whole day to myself.

I usually catch a movie in the afternoon, deciding what to see either Daybreakers or Book of Eli. Hmmmm....

I just saw The Hurt Locker the other day when it came out on Redbox and I gotta say I loved it. The entire time I was sitting there watching I was thinking, how is he going to react once he gets back home, and I figured he would probably go back for another tour. I really believe that when soldiers get used to life overseas in countries like Afghanistan and Iraq, well when their time is up you can't really get used to civilian life back home so the best thing for them is to do what they know and that's go back overseas.

But on a diff. note it was a really good movie. And if I was in their spot, I'd probably do the same thing too. I don't know how I could go home and live a civilian life with my wife and kid when my job is defusing bombs in countries where half the bystanders want you to die and you have to see the bloodshed and horrible things firsthand.

As for Inglorious Basterds, I loved it. It had everything I liked in it. There was humor, gore, bloodshed (final scene really makes up for lack of it throughout the course of the movie), suspense, it was one of the best flicks that I've seen in a while. I bought it on Blu-Ray first day it came out lol.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

I just finished watching "The Blind Side". That movie was freaking incredible. I hate to admit it but I was crying like a woman on a steady dose of estrogen. It is not your typical sports film, it's a story about life. This is the first Sandra Bullock movie I have ever liked. It is definately a must see even if you aren't a sports fan. I earnd kudos from my wife for making her watch this and she hates sports.

I'm so mad at myself for not going to see it yet. I've gotta go this week. It probably won't be out in theaters much longer.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Finally saw The Hangover this past Saturday night. I'm glad I own it because I'd like to watch it again to catch the subtleties I didn't see. It was definitely funny, and worthy of it's Golden Globe for Best Comedy.

How did you not like Speed or Demolition Man? Those are cheesy action movie classics!

I don't like cheesy action movies except for the part where Sylvester Stallone was cursing into the ticket machine so that he could have some TP.
