I loved that movie. Was it a case of not understanding it or did you just think it was bad?

In your opinion what stunk about it? Personally we thought that the story was good and for the most part, believable. The humor was great too.

The acting was awful and IMO it was totally unbelievable. When JT was taking on that Asian gang it felt like Big trouble in Little China and the coke scene how dumb like really you would hide it all in the ceiling, every time you need some you have to tear up the ceiling to get at it.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

So you have 2 complaints about the realism in "From Paris with Love", yet I could completely destroy the reality of the Bourne series from start to finish. Not that it's not entertaining, it's just way beyond reality.

To each his own of course but From Paris With Love gets some brutal reviews

Book of Eli doesn't do much better

I saw those Matty but what people expect from reality and cinema these days is just absurd. It used to be that you wanted cinema to capture reality. Now we want cinema to blow us away and it's not realistic or cool enough if it doesn't cut it.

Normal people in that kind of work are cheesy ass self proclaimed badasses just like Travolta's character or by the book dweebs like the other guy. Situations like that (I am talking about the overall plot) do happen frequently. That is why we enjoyed it.

nicely done sir. that gave me a good laugh

i remember the movie i wanted to talk about: machette

the fake trailer clip in grindhouse was awesome, i, like alot of people, were hoping they would make that into a full length movie and they have.

the movie looks very closely tied to the trailer, with the same old school grainy feel and action.

i am going to wait for reviews but i am interested to see how rodriguez did this one.

I want to see Machette as well. Looks like it'll be a fun movie. Whole lot of Bullets, blood, Cursing, Violence, Cliche's, and women. Just like the good Lord intended movies to be.

Watched Kick Ass and went in with low expectations. I expected a half rate comedy and got a raunchy action flick. I was pleasantly suprised.
