What Movies Are You Watching Lately - Page 501

post #7501 of 9454

Had basically the same feeling about Bling Ring. The company I work for sponsored the movie in Italy, so I felt some kind of interest in seeing it... and was utterly disappointed as well. I also expected there to be more character development and a "crash and burn" effect during the second half. Maybe that didn't happen because this is based on a true story. This is how it actually went down. And the most disturbing part was when the girl interviews at the end: she was the ringleader, but also the ultimate manipulator, and we only start to realize to what point she is evil in the last few seconds of the movie. It left me feeling empty.

 

Spring Breakers, on the other hand, is one I've been avoiding, not even watching when there's nothing else. Now, based on your comment... maybe I will watch it after all.

Saw The Prisoners last night . If any movie can be described as "gripping" it's this one

I would hope so... This is one of Ford's and Wayne's best work, I love it smile.gif



re-watched this recently, and all I can say is, it is still as powerful and intense as back then..

L'Avventura is the best of the Antonioni films in Italian, although Blow-Up is imo the best overall.

Il Grido holds up, I find.

For Antonioni's English language films, I prefer The Passenger to Blow Up, as good as it is. The final scene in the former is astounding.

Looking forward to this. Love the Cornetto trilogy (or at least the first two parts).

Enjoyed Cloud Atlas very much. Guess I'll watch it again soon.

Watched the end of Real Steel with my 4 year old nephew. When it was over he took off his pants, put them on over his head and started hitting himself with a cardboard brick.

Seems like a perfectly appropriate response to me.

Shame - Fantastic movie. Fassbender is an amazing actor and McQueen is just as good of a director. I've been meaning to see Hunger for awhile and now it looks like its been put on the short list.
