What Movies Are You Watching Lately - Page 128

post #1906 of 9622
Over the past few weeks:

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy- Like others mentioned, the pace was a bit slow. I thought it was a rather unremarkable movie with very little suspense.
Castaway on the Moon- A cute Japanese movie about escaping the difficulty of life.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo- Good, but no better than the Swedish version, except that it had more skin happy.gif
A Somewhat Gentle Man- Probably the most heartwarming movie about gangsters I've ever seen. Always enjoy Stellan Skarsgard.

Just caught the last 15 minutes of Crank: High Voltage. I am convinced that this 30 years from now this will be one of the movies that inspires a new Quentin T type of director.

What a weird and brilliant take on an action film.

Those two Crank movies are insane. I love them both. The movies shouldn't work, especially the sequel, but they do.

First, thank you for coming through on your promise to change up the avatar. Personally, I wish you'd go back to the dude from Sesame Street, but to each his own.

I put the Crank movies in the same bucket as Machete. The director/producers/writers are clearly in on the joke that this is supposed to be ridiculous. And as long as we know that they know, it somehow makes it all right.

IT'S KOREAN, BRO!

Fantastic comedy, though.

watched this last night and I'd have to agree. I wasn't disappointed per se because it was engaging enough on a "thoughtful" level... but I was expecting something "more" for some reason.

Unfortunately Guy Smiley was killed off by Ed and the inner circle, so I don't think he'll be coming back. frown.gif

And absolutely agree about the intentions of those who make those kinds of movies. Thats why I love Evil Dead, but can't stand Hostel.

Bill Cunningham
Drive

Drive is a great film for its artistic qualities. Its a weak story line but the soundtrack and cinematography were memorable.

Rum Diary
Johnny Depp again as Hunter S. Thompson - this time a bit younger and in San Juan.
A movie that has no idea where it wants to go. It introduces about a half dozen plot lines and takes them nowhere.

Would agree on your comments about Drive.

Tried to thumbs up your post, but wasn't working for some reason.
