What Movies Are You Watching Lately - Page 371

post #5551 of 10271
Been on a movie binge the past week:
  • Zero Dark Thirty - great job of telling the story from a personal viewpoint
  • Django Unchained - completely absurd and wildly entertaining
  • Life of Pi - beautifully cinematography and the 3D was well executed
  • Looper - clever and entertaining
  • The Dark Knight Rises - ok but did not live up to expectations, anyone else think Bane's voice was crap
  • Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy - expertly told, definitely a slow burn but kept my intrigue throughout

Those goddamn Nolan/Batman movies are so overrated... Also saw Savages... which is fucking horrible. Ted was okay.

^^ Be more specific. Those are pretty different movies.

Old? New?

Prefer something newer, as I've seen many of the good 'older' movies. I like psychological thrillers/suspense like Memento, where scene to scene you're not exactly sure what's happening, or more procedural dramas like Lincoln Lawyer, with or without a nice twist.

Not as up on newer movies. Try some of these:

 

Headhunters

Rear Window

The Prestige

Blood Simple

Marathon Man

The Conversation

Dead Ringers

The Wages of Fear

A History of Violence

Old Boy

Funny Games

Witness for the Prosecution

I watched The Master in a hotel room recently. I was psyched that it was availble on demand and the hotel room had a pretty nice /large screen TV.

I'm pissed that I didn't watch it for the first time on a big screen. it was a great movie but you could tell that the whole film was created to be experienced in a movie theater. jUst some purely beautiful cinemetography-porn scenes that were long and drawn out.

then again its like almost 3 hours long and lends itself perfectly for lazy hotel nights where you don't want to go out. if you watch it in a theater you really have to plan your day around it. Plus its not like a huge batman movie/summer blockbuster... this movie you come out of the theater more confused and thinking "what the fuck was that?" but in a great way.

I loved The Master. Many of my friends either loved it or hated it.

Lefty, which Funny Games? Original or remake? Either way interesting films.

I was pissed that I didn't watch it here. But the two theaters theaters that are playing it in the city are a pain to get to and you really have to plan you day around that shit.

I loved loved it. here's the weird part... I had the TV cranked up and that first scene/awesome score scared the bejesus out of my dog but then the dog did the weirdest thing.... he started watching the movie intently right beside me mesmerized for the whole rest of the movie.

People must have such weird reactions to the movie, my wife was giggling throughout. I was totally engrossed (since my whole childhood I grew up in around my parent's nursing homes which had schitzo patients just like the main character). I would've loved to watched it in the theater the first time and watched/heard/felt the reactions of the audience watching too.

I saw it at the Angelika. Not a pain to get to, imo. Freddy is an amazing character. The awkward handjob scene was amazing.

Pick one. The second is a shot-for-shot remake of the first. It's not like we're talking about The Vanishing. Oh, add that to the list but only the original.

sorry I meant parking a car around the theaters.... I'm becoming the idiot who drives around NYC and circles the block for free parking now. It becomes almost a game to me.

well you could say the same thing about the Departed/infernal affair too right? I got pissed that Scorsese was applauded for directing a movie which had things that were taken verbatim scene for scene from the original.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
the scene where the officer gets thrown off the building.

The american one had naomi watts.... so it added a sexual element where you have an very attractive actress being degraded/debased so completely. There was definitely a difference just because of her inherent attractiveness.
