Even though it is a bit sentimental, I liked Warrior.

The only monumental thing about this is how bad it is.

Was actually surprised at how incompetent it was on almost every level.

Another good one.

I want to see Tom Hardy play the Joker. (Yes I know he played Bane already.)

Really liked that movie. I mustve replayed the fight like 5 times (probably more)

The secret in their eyes - Billy Ray (2015)

 

 



Anti terror police experiencing tension when officer's daughter is killed.

 

This is an adaptation of an Argentinian movie from 2009. I watched it because Nicole Kidman, but she is fare from good in this rather boring movie. Julia Roberts is grey and uninspired, as the rest. I wonder why did they make this movie, it seems so unnecessary.

Argentinian movie was good, haven't seen this one but I think I will pass

Lately:



Hasn't aged as well as some of those other 80's action flicks. Soundtrack for instance is so saxophone heavy that even Spandau Ballet is going 'That's a lot of sax!' and the Mano a Mano ending is too stupid. Mel does crazy really good, though.




Better than the new Magnificent 7.




Just awful.




Even dumber than the trailer made it look. Best part is when James Purefoy's character says 'I've seen this in way too many movies.'




Probably successful in the sense that it accomplishes what it sets out to do, but I could just as well have skipped this.




This one on the other hand, I rather enjoyed (some heavy-handed sappiness aside).




Liked the Morricone soundtrack but not much else.

Meh.




Pretty cool.




Disappointing; should've probably rewatched District 9 instead.




Really liked this.




Hadn't seen this since the 70's, so a timely rewatch followed by the first episode of the new HBO series. Movie hasn't aged too well (among other stuff there's a jarringly silly sallon brawl, complete with Benny Hill music), but parts of it are still cool.

Spot-on. Cepting Lethal Weapon. Even w a preemo spandau ballet joke LW is still sick AF. Yeah hundo on Westworld: looked so cool to me as a kid but even then underwhelmed. SFers seem to be lovin the series...I was like, mmm, 7.5/8.

Agreed with Roy Al

Queen of Katwe

 

Almost a feel good movie.  We enjoyed it.  Without the movie, I would not have known about Phiona.

 

Why is living in such poor conditions so beautiful to photograph?

 

BTW, we were the only two in a 400+ seat theater until well into the movie, when another couple came in and sat in the front row.

 

Cheers

I thought this was really good. Directed by Bateman, much better then his other movie Bad Words. Highly recommended!

Slow burning (probably too slow for some) and rather gory at times (actually too gory for me, though I can't deny its impact). Part of the story (but not the feel) reminded me of McTiernan's The 13th Warrior (which was based on Eaters of the Dead by Michael Crichton), while many reviews call out similarities to Ford's The Searchers. Rather impressive on its $1.8M budget and strangely captivating, even though I can't imagine I'll feel like seeing it again. Kurt Russel is of course pretty much perfect for this kind of thing, while Matthew Fox delivers an almost 'Daniel Day-Lewis-Light' performance, which is about as high praise as you can get.

^You made me want to see this, Kaplan.

post #14084 of 14406
^ Considering the budget, it has really good production values and I rather liked the very sparingly used soundtrack too.

Even though I'm not quite sure what the destination is, it's certainly a trip.

This film was...a little bizarre. It's probably the only big budget film of the era that might be classified as a 'cult film'. Produced by Howard Hughes, he apparently disliked the original director and replaced him and subsequently a large portion of the original cut. And then he disliked the original villain and replaced him with Raymond Burr replacing an additional portion of the film.

 

I imagine at a certain point everyone start ad-libbing as they thought Hughes would probably reshoot the scene again so Vincent Price hams it up for the last 1/3 of the film. He starts the film as a bit character part and then replaces Mitchum to become the star by the end.

 

What I found interesting is that the latter part of this film feels like a modern (I guess by this I mean since Die Hard and Lethal Weapon) action film where 2 guys single-handedly fight off the villain and his henchman in a spectacular firefight of sorts. Not that I particularly like that sort of sequence since it tends to be less about any acting or storytelling (or really anything other than a bunch of quick cuts of shots fired), but it was interesting to see Mitchum and Price become Mel Gibson and Danny Glover.
