What Movies Are You Watching Lately - Page 354

Why - go see it in 3D. I know, I know, it seems silly. But, in this movie at least, it really enhances the visual experience and overall depth of the movie.

I'll make you a bet - if you don't like it in 3D I'll paypal you the money for the ticket.

3D has changed quite a lot since I remember seeing it as a kid (at places like disney world where it really was cheesy).

I still don't like it for various reasons (the luminance, the glasses, that it is not real and is just tricking your eyes, all the movies that made 3D in post, etc) but I will say that something like avatar was stunning. The movie was meh, but the use of 3D really was nice.

Still a gimmick, but a gimmick that was fun to experience. I imagine they have made many more improvements since Avatar (like the hobbit's cameras) so I think I would like to go experience the gimmick again with the hobbit.

Then I can wait another 3 years before going to a 3D movie again.

Sat through Premium Rush. Not bad but not spectacular either. Michael Shannon did his thing.

The Sessions is the best movie I've seen this year.

 

John Hawkes does something that few actors can do - makes you forget he is acting. Prone and covered with an iron lung he nonetheless fills every room with nothing but his character's personality. This is an easy Oscar and one that the academy should be happy to vote for. He may be the actor of his generation.

 

Helen Hunt - never really able to make a solid run as a film actress - pretty much went in to this with a "fuck it" attitude and delivered a raw and naked performance hitting some marks she did years earlier in The Waterdance.

 

Go see this.

He's criminally underrated. I loved him in Deadwood.

If you grew up (and/or were watching movies) in the 70s/80s you may remember this...

I'd recommend this little gem smile.gif

Just watched Ruby Sparks. Someone else posted about this (relatively) recently. Really enjoyed the movie.

from the look of the trailer Hopkins does not do a good job at all.

 

On another note I can't wait to see TLJ as General MacArthur

Saw Real Men on HDNet. John Ritter and the other Belushi have to race against time to deliver a glass of water to Aliens to save all of humanity. I loved this dumb movie as a kid and it's still hilariously entertaining. Completely dumb, but really entertaining. And the soundtrack, holy shit, what an awesome soundtrack. Miles Goodman. Looks like he did some comedies and such in the '80s and '90s but this was a rather brilliant soundtrack. He died in '96 at the age of 46 of a heart attack.


I laughed.
