Saw the hobbit in 3d which im very against but it was the only way to see it in the 48fps. It looked fast forwarded at times and the voicing was out of sync...movie itself was good but 48fps was dumb...2d all day every day>3d crap

Definitely agree, 3D wasn't good and the 48 fps just make it look cheap. I wonder if it looks better seeing it in 24 fps. Movie wasn't nearly good enough to want to see it again. Felt like a lot of filler and definitely more kid oriented than Lord of the Rings (which isn't too surprising considering the books). Honestly though I think kids would get bored with the filler material. Based on this alone I don't see any reason why this should have been broken into 3 movies. I did like Martin Freeman and the scenes with him and Gollum were definitely one of the highlights.

I remember that movie now. Body doubles or something? Pretty average.

I like futuristic dysatopian type films so I liked it...

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
They are clones bread for their owners to use when they need their organs etc...and when they are given a ticket off the island its their owners wanting or needing an organ

The story was fine, I just found the constant product placement annoying. (IMHO) Skyfall was subtle in comparison..

I liked Gattaca in that vein. Uma looked incredible in that movie.

District 9, V for Vendetta (though it seems nobody liked it), Brazil and of course #1 Blade Runner

Ha ha, anyone ever seen Death Race 2000?

District 9 blew me away big time
I liked V for Vendetta
Brazil & The Blade Runner - no words needed....
Death Race 2000 is a Corman Classic


btw - anyone seen Fassbinders "Welt am Draht" ?
It's available on DVD and even on Criterion Blu Ray nowadays...
I loved that one as a kid.. smile.gif

District 9 was puerile politicized crap. I'll never understand why people like that movie.

V for Vendetta was great fun.

And I don't like Blade Runner much. It's way overrated -- a boring and watered-down version of Philip K. Dick's fun but flawed book. Its only saving grace is that it has a few scenes with nice visuals.

Ive probably watched gattaca 25-30 times. Everytime it was on show/stars whatever the past few years I watched it.

District 9 was good but nothing that really warrented more then a few watches.

V for Vendetta is good but isnt on tv that much so ive only seen it 3 times.

Brazil and blade runner are great of course.

I actually liked the new total recall a lot more then the arnold version.

Saw Lincoln.  DDL was powerful.  I loved the argument he had with his wife about their son wanting to enlist.

 

Cheers,

Still, the best future dystopian movie is Children of Men.

I can agree that is up there with the best. Waterworld anyone? I kidd...

Some of my fav from the genre.

A clockwork orange/ Minority Report / 12 Monkeys / I am legend / book of eli / equillibrium / Dark City / Metropolis the anime one / Ghost in a shell ( anime )

The matrix...well the first two.

I saw The Hobbit this past Saturday, I enjoyed it and can't wait for the next one. I also watched 2009's Star Trek (with all the Star Trek Into Darkness talk, I had to rewatch the 09 movie), Zachary Quinto's Spock still annoyed the shit out of me for the majority of the movie, other than that, I still really like the movie. Also watched Savages yesterday. It wasn't bad. It wasn't great, either.

Prly watching "Killer Joe" tonight. Anyone want to warn me off it?
post #5355 of 10281
Saw it for the 3rd time this weekend....it really is something you need to watch over and over again.
