What Movies Are You Watching Lately - Page 299

post #4471 of 9628
Finally watched The Cabin in the Woods last night. I enjoyed it a lot - lots of Scream style nods to the conventions of horror films but taken in an entirely different direction. By the time we were about halfway through I felt like I had a good sense of where it would wind up, but it was a fun ride getting there.

Watched the 1981 Excalibur at my local film club today and really enjoyed it. Grandiose in parts, grimy in others with some great ideas and a very broad telling of the legend. I was surprised John Boorman also directed Deliverance.

Excalibur seems ripe for a remake anyhow, with a more LOTR budget to suit the rather epic material.

The Boondock Saints, style over substance and an enormous slice of ham from Dafoe, but at least watchable.

Loved Excalibur, saw it as a double feature with Mad Max II.

Now watch Overnight, the rags-to-riches-to-rags story of Troy Duffy.

Finally managed to watch "Shame". It´d been a while since I saw such a raw and intense performance. Can´t understand how he was overlooked at the oscars, he was simply amazing. And Steve Mcqueen does a fantastic job directing. There´s such an ease and quiteness in a lot of the scenes but full of poetry and filled with a plethora of emotions. I loved it.

That's a pretty great double bill, very eclectic. Mad Max after Excalibur?

My GF loves Boondock Saints but I just can't get away with it, it's just too silly for my liking, especially the Rocco character.

Agreed, excellent film indeed.

Haha nothing condemns a schlock film like it being so forgettable. What did you think of it?

People who love The Boondock Saints are people who haven't seen good movies.

Agreed. I've noticed women tend to like it a lot.

Women think the guys are hot in it. I think women are stupid. Actually wait, I know women are stupid.

see page 298 wink.gif
not too bad, not too good. average.
but I think the story material would have asked for a much more darker, nastier movie & cinematography. Especially the second half, the tone was way too comical for me to take it really serious.

Boondock Saints:
Yeah I know that, it's also highly praised around my parts of Europe, and I can see the reason why it has this huge cult following, it's an enjoyable ride for sure, but other than that, I'm more in line with patrickBOOTH....

ah, speaking of Schlock - I just watched the "American Grindhouse" documentary.. and I certainly did enjoy that. smile.gif

Pretty sure it was Excalibur first then Mad Max 2 but it was a long time ago.

Okay I thought I was the only one who wasn't impressed with Boondock Saints.
