Re: Getting ready for an awesome year of movies

I'm actually more excited about the return of Sopranos and Entourage than any movie. But some of those movies should be decent.

Re: Getting ready for an awesome year of movies

Hot Fuzz looks like it's going to be great, but I might be biased because Shaun of the Dead is one of my favorite movies.

There are some other movies that look pretty good to me (the new Halloween movie from Rob Zombie, Pathfinder, Spiderman3, Die Hard, The Simpsons Bourne Ultimatum, etc) but there aren't any that I feel like I have to see right away.

I love movies and a weekend doesn't feel complete if I haven't seen a new movie either in the theater or on dvd.

And I had some high hopes for Pathfinder but it got delayed so much I just don't know anymore. but I'll still go see it, haha.

Don't waist your time with Hot Fuzz. It's a giant pile of steaming crap.

Hot Fuzz is awesome...guess I'm curious as to why you think it's a steaming pile...

I could not disagree with you more.
The first time I watched it I thought it was okay, but not that great. Since then I've watched it about 2.5 more times (it was on TV the other night but it was like 2am and I couldn't stay awake) and, like Shaun of the Dead, I think it gets funnier every time I see it because I pick up more subtle jokes.

It's completely different from a lot of comedies that are out now (ie Judd Apatow movies) but I think that it's just as good, if not better. A lot of the Judd Apatow, Frat Pack movies rely on improv and situational humor, which is all well and good; but the Simon Pegg, Edgar White, Nick Frost movies (Shaun and Hot Fuzz) have much smarter writing. The other funny thing about them is that they both sort of work as a horror flick or action/thriller, only they're funny as all hell.

Seriously, if you liked Shaun of the Dead you HAVE to watch Hot Fuzz, maybe more a couple of times.

Recently seen movies: Breach and Zodiac

I'm a big fan of David Fincher (Se7en, The Game, Alien3) so I couldn't wait to see "Zodiac". If you didn't like "All the President's Men" you won't like this one -- there's a lot of talk, and really not as much suspense or thrills as you'd expect. If you're up for a good thinking person's movie this will fit the bill. I love the dark, moody cinematography. The murder scenes are so casual, so ... non-chalant, it's a different way of moviemaking compared with your everyday slasher flicks. I'd give "Zodiac" three and a half stars.

Fight Club was his most overrated movie. Alien3 was so-so. But his most overlooked was "The Game" with Michael Douglas. The scene with the porcelain clown was pretty spooky.

Same thing for "Breach" -- a movie about spies, but not a spy movie. Lots of talk, centered on personal relationships, the downfall of a good man... pretty fair, but I'd wait for it on HBO or something. Two and half stars.

Re: Getting ready for an awesome year of movies

I've recently watched Pursuit of Happyness, Children of Men, and Curse of the Golden Flower.

Pursuit of Happyness: I thought it was a pretty moving story and it's good to every once in a while watch a movie about beating real life odds. Will Smith deserved his oscar nomination and he and his son had a few really touching moments that I know a few of us can connect with in relation to our fathers when we were kids.

Children of Men: A movie that deserved more pub than it got. Incredibily well shot movie with multiple scenes lasting 10-12 minutes without a cut. I wouldn't really compare it to Bladerunner like the ads said, but still worth a look.

Curse of the Golden Flower: Up there with 300 as far as one of the most incredibily amazing looking movies. The story is not what I was really expecting (IE some semi Epidus Rex type stuff) but it was still well done. I just can't say enough about the camera work and use of colors. Any fan of epic asian films should enjoy this. and it was freakin awesome to see Chow Yun Fat playing the role of a bastard of an emperor, father, and husband cuz u don't expect that from his previous roles.

Merged: The Movies Thread

Well, i figured that everytime i want to talk about a movie i just post it up in the SHFT so i don't have to make a new thread. So maybe this thread would serve well when we want to talk about new movies in theaters.


So, to start this sumbitch off. I just watched the simpsons movie. ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. I watched the midnight show and it was over by 1:40. So its not way to long but it is hilarious. The great thing is that they obviously don't have to develop any of the characters and go straight into the good stuff. It is awesome. F...ing awesome. The people in the theater were the type of people that would go watch the movie at midnight on a thursday. It was a great crowd to watch the movie with. It was getting claps throughout the movie. I can't say enough about it. I was worried it wouldn't deliver but it most definitely did. I loved it. I didn't stop smiling at all throughout the movie.


Also i watched chuck and larry last week. Great movie also by the way. I would talk about other great movies of the summer but i'm going to niagara falls at 6 am so i need some sleep.
