Ah. I've never seen any of Deadwood.

Rocketboy, you've never watched Deadwood, and you think Seth Bullock sucks?

I have two words to say to you:

"******' **********!!"

If you ever watched Deadwood, you'd know what I'm saying.

Saw Mobsters the other night. Not the best mob movie ever made by a long shot, but a pretty decent movie.

Just caught Date Movie on HBO. I have to say I thought the movie was funny as all hell, laughed the entire time. Plus I have a huge crush on Alyson Hannigan. It was something about being the quiet shy girl on Buffy the Vampire Slayer that did it for me.

Would you like to see a ghost? Not after watching Pulse you won't. The story is basically a variation of the living dead, but we get soul-sucking ghosts rather than flesh-eating ghouls.

I wasn't too impressed with Lady in the Water. Just couldn't get into the story at all.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Brain that Wouldn't Die was pretty fun to watch. This episode was the first to feature former MST3K head writer Mike Nelson as the host. I really miss this show.

Saw Major Payne today. Yes, for the first time. It's one of those everyone figures I've seen, but I haven't. Until this afternoon.

That is one damned funny movie. Next to I'm Gonna Git You, Sucka!, that's Damon Wayons' greatest big-screen role.

My favorite part is when he's talking to the maggots for the first time and he gets to the deaf guy...."If you don't listen to what I say.....I'm gonna put my foot, UP YOUR ***!!!!!" Man I die laughing everytime I get to that part.

Watched The Empire Strikes Back. Also caught Dr Jekyl & Ms Hyde. actually thought that the movie was pretty funny, it was a new twist on an old classic, and Sean Young looked great in the movie. Still couldn't get it out of my head though the scene from Ace Ventura in the end with Captain Winkie.

Well, I decided to start something that I had never seen before, instead of revisiting Carnivale; so I started with the first season of Six Feet Under. I watched 2 episodes last night and I watched 4 episodes today. I think the show is outstanding and I almost immediately fell in love with it. I'm very much looking forward to watching more episodes and seasons.

I used to watch SFU when it was on HBO, but i quickly lost it due to school and no HBO, etc. I'm going to one day just buy that box set of all 6 seasons. It'll be a great weekend.

Watched "The Science of Sleep" and "Hollywoodland" today. SoS was pretty decent, nowhere near "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" as the main character was kinda annoying. "hollywoodland" was pretty good, very excellent detective flick. :thumbsup:

I know there was a remake a few years ago with Vince Vaughn but I never knew there was a sequel made.

I think there was at least 3 sequels to the original Psycho being Psycho II & III and The Bates Motel. all of them starred Anthony Perkins in the role of Norman but in the 4th sequel Norman actually dies of old age and leaves the motel to another inmate at the asylum.
The original Psycho was by far the best, the second was the goriest, and the third the most ridiculous. since the 4th flick really has nothing to do with Norman I sort of count it as a new series.

Wasn't Jason Bateman in The Bates Motel ? (which was a made for TV movie, I believe).

Uke, you are in for a WILD ride with SFU, what a fantastic show. It really made me think more about death. :dead: And I'll tell you this much, THAT show went out in style...unlike Carnivale and Deadwood which weren't given a chance. :(

Saw The Cat Returns from Studio Ghibli (based on an idea by Miyazaki, though he didn't direct it) today. Very good movie, also. It's a testament to the quality of Studio Ghibli's work that this was apparently geared toward preteen Japanese girls, and yet I enjoyed every second of it. Maybe not as much as, say, My Neighbor Totoro or Spirited Away, but pretty close.

Oddly, the statue of The Baron from Studio Ghibli's Whisper of the Heart is a major character here, but the story is far more magical than WOTH, which is mostly realistic. It's almost like Kilgore Trout from Vonnegut's novels: the character will show up in every book, but rarely, if ever, is actually the same.

I'm going to one day just buy that box set of all 6 seasons. It'll be a great weekend.

That box set is awesome. Unfortunately I don't have the set, I just have the individual seasons. I'd be all over the box set though; the grass on the top is a great touch. :thumbsup:

I thought there were only 5 seasons JMG?

Good to hear that the show ends/wraps up in a good way. That really is comforting to know. Carnivale got the shaft and the lack of some closure with that show really sucks something awful. I haven't seen Season 3 of Deadwood yet so I'm not sure how that one went out.

I would check out the SFU threads but I'm sure I'd find spoilers galore. I'll definitely look at them when I finish watching the show and I'll let you guys know what I think.

The past couple of days I watched a few more episodes of Six Feet Under so I'm almost done with Season One. I should be able to start Season Two sometime this weekend. I still love the show. All of the characters are fantastic, yet they are so different. The show makes it work though, really well might I add. That Brenda sure is something else. I love the premise too; how they start a show off with someone dying and the show revolves around the main characters' personal lives while fitting in with the business aspect of it, setting up the funeral, talking with the family, etc. It is very well done. I won't really elaborate too much more on the show incase there are people who have yet to see it and might want to watch it sometime in the future (which I would highly recommend). It is a very enjoyable show and I look forward to watching it everyday. :thumbsup:

Last night I watched a pretty bad movie called The Grudge 2. It failed to deliver on almost every aspect. I really enjoyed the first one, much like kidhuman ;), but this sequel was more than disappointing. It was awful. If you didn't like the first one, don't even bother with this one. If you did like the first one, I still woudln't bother with this one.

I also watched a couple more episodes of SFU and the show continues to impress. I haven't finished season one yet but I should either today or tomorrow.

Still Six Feet Under for me. I'm about half way through the third season right now. The show sure has changed course, drastically might I add, from the ending of season two and what I've seen of season three so far. It's like watching a completely different show. I must say, I did enjoy the first two seasons more than what I've seen of the third so far. The third season is still good though, I'm just not used to the "changes". I love their new apprentice, and I'm sure all of "The Office" fans would too. :thumbsup:

I bought the Departed on Tuesday. I'm really looking forward to watching that this weekend as I hear it is an oustanding movie. It's already ranked #74 on IMDB's top 250.

I was able to watch The Departed last night and I absolutely loved it. The whole movie was extremely well done. The directing, the script, the acting, everything, was all phenominal. It is easily one of the best films I have seen in a while. :thumbsup::thumbsup:


After the The Departed I watched another movie called The Quiet. This movie was a strange one and I'm still not sure what to make of it. I can picture a lot of people really enjoying the film, and others hating it. It's that type of movie. Elisha Cuthbert stars and was the main reason I watched it. It was okay I guess, I'm still thinkin' about it. :neutral:

When radioactive fall-out causes a giant squid to attack Pacific shipping, it’s up to a Navy captain and two scientists to track the creature and kill it before it destroys San Francisco in It Came from Beneath the Sea. This one stars Kenneth Tobey, who starred in quite a few sci-fi b-movies, including the classic The Thing (from Another World)! This film also features special effects by Ray Harryhausen.

Mike, Tom Servo, and Crow serve up This Island Earth in Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie. This film has the famous Metaluna Mutant (”http://www.sideshowtoy.com/cgi-bin/category.cgi?item=44261&source=vintagemonsters”) creature, an insectoid looking thing with a giant exposed brain.

Jason and the Argonauts is fantastic. I actually watched that a couple of months ago. I purchased The Fantastic Films of Ray Harryhausen: Legendary Monster Series (http://www.amazon.com/Fantastic-Films-Ray-Harryhausen-Legendary/dp/B00069L0X6/sr=8-1/qid=1172113827/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/002-0856851-1866437?ie=UTF8&s=dvd) a while back and that was the first movie I watched.

I always thought "Delirious" topped "Raw" for a few simple reasons: James Brown, Elvis, Stevie Wonder and Mr T's new sexual experiences. Still, "Raw" is fantastic. I was UBER happy when "Delirious" hit DVD earlier this month. Only about 10 bucks; great purchase! :thumbsup:

Delirious is well worth the "buy before seeing". And at $10 it makes it that much easier. If you like Raw then you'll surely like this one. It's got it's great moments.

Delirious is the better of the two. Raw is funny but Delirious was the one that I was talkin' about up above.

I agree with you, JMG. I just watched Delirious and I thought it was funnier than Raw. I loved the story of his aunt falling down the stairs.

Robin Williams is in his prime as a comedian TV host who decides to run for President. His character Tom Dobbs tells the country what they want to hear, how politicians are in it for themselves. The movie also involves a conspiracy to fix the election and gives the movie something more then just slapstick humor and political jokes.
If you get the chance, give this movie a try.

I started the 5th and final season of SFU today and I have already watched 5 episodes. So far its been really good. I am looking forward to see how they wrap this show up, although I am sad at the same time. It's been a great ride and I will hate to see it come to an end. :(

An entymologist (Peter Graves) and his photographer gal pal helps the army defeat a swarm of giant grasshoppers mutated into giant size by radiation in Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Beginning of the End. Bad creature effects were actual shots of real insects, including some shots of the bugs crawling over photos of city buildings.

The Illusionist was pretty solid fare. Bit of a stretch at the end, but still very entertaining.

Two conscientious drifters (Henry Fonda and a remarkably youthful Harry M*A*S*H Morgan) ride into town and join a lawless posse out to hunt down cattle rustlers and murderers after a local ranch owner is reported dead in The Ox-Bow Incident. After finding a trio of men camped nearby, the mob votes to hang 'em without trial, before finding out they are innocent of the crime.

I liked when Doc shoots Ringo "You ain't no daisy", other favorite lines "My hypocrisy goes only so far" later followed by "I lied, my hypocrisy know no bounds."

Well, I just finished watching "The Prestige" a good movie, but why is it that Hollywood seems to be running with these "The Usual Suspects" story lines. There always has to be a big long conspiracy at the end, where the audience goes "Wow, I didn't see that one coming".

Anyway, it was a very good film and I recommend watching it sometime.

I just watched that lemony snicket movie. Finally a Jim Carrey movie I can watch. A cool little tale and a lovely visual style to the movie. Some good use of CGI. I wasn't overly impressed with the subtitles for the baby and would have preferred a childs voice in voiceover but it didn't detract too much from the procceedings.
And i always enjoy a movie that doesn't succumb to a stupid happy ending. the uncertain ending and fate of the characters here was deftly dealt with. And this one is definitely going to be added to my DVD library.

I too watched the prestige recently and found the movie over long and plodding. the style of the movie was excellent, good lighting and atmosphere. it was the twist that bothered me. far too contrived. like they jackhammered it in. frankly the device plot point and the unfortunate consequences of using it and the discovery of that fact was a good enough point to finish the movie on. more of a tragic note. the prolonged ending they gave the movie was I suppose more of an Edgar Allen Poe climax though and did remind me of Roger Corman movies. Which i suppose was part of the inspiration. The Poe element not the Corman campery.

Creepshow 3 was filmed in 06. I believe it comes out on dvd towards the end of May. Here is a little info on it at IMDB (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0478125/). As you can see it is rated really low and the people bash the hell out of it. I don't think it is really affiliated with anyone who was involved with the others, like King and Romero. I think it was put out by some independant company, appears to be the same folks who did Day Of The Dead 2: Contagium. Looks like they are going to remake the original Creepshow (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0485887/)too. :mad:

I'ver never seen any of Moore's Bond movies. The only Brosnan one that I really liked was Goldeneye (gotta love Famke). I've only seen a couple of Connery's, Goldfinger being my favorite. I haven't seen very many of the earlier Bond movies, but I've seen all of Brosnans.

Agreed. After some initial misgivings about the selection of Bond, Craig's portrayal of Bond in the film won me over quickly. The storyline was also above average, better than the last two Brosnan movies. I just put that on Birthday wish list and hope to watch it soon again. Can't wait for the next one.

Just watched.

Talladega Nights - not the best Ferrell movie, kinda had me hating him and his kids during the whole movie, but turned it around toward the end.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire- Darkest of the Potter movies. Wonderfully acted by the young actors, and am continually impressed by the actress who plays Hermione. The book contained a lot more subplots, they cut the reporter chick's storyline (forget her name) but after remembering how thick the book is, I understand they must do so.

Awakenings - Never saw this movie until last week. I must admit, I was intrigued by the story, and how it is based from true events. It was sad to know that was factual after hearing a story about catatonic people who because of a miracle drug, "awoke" from their slumber after decades, only to find that the drug's side effects were too severe and the conscious period only temporary. DeNiro gives a wonderful performance, and Robin Williams does his best acting in a serious role. Also, Marge Simpson's voice, done by Julie Kavner, has a wonderful role as the head nurse and confidant to Williams.

There were some stirring, powerful emotions in this movie. And it was bittersweet too, especially for those afflicted. Some of the patients knew what eventually was going to happen to them, that they would regress back into their slumber. It must have been a powerful moment for their families too. To see their loved ones come back after many hopeless years and than to lose them again. At least they did receive some precious moments that one summer that I'm sure they never forgot.

I actually found it to be one of the best Bond movies, certainly one of the best story lines, excellent breath-taking cinematography, full of non-stop action, and certainly unique in the fact that it does what few Bond movies do; it breaks your heart at the end of the movie.

The pacing is a bit clunky, and certain scenes overextend, but Lazenby was an underrated Bond, and so was the movie as a whole.

I've watched a few more episodes of Dead Like Me and I took down a viewing of The Fifth Element earlier today. I've been pretty busy lately so I haven't been able to watch much.

Eragon isnt anything super spectacular. If you read the book, you might not enjoy it because they changed alot of it according to Mrs KH. I liked it, I wasnt expecting much at all from it though. Like Cae said, it was alright

Mrs Chux read it, and said it was only so-so. She didn't care to watch the movie, and said she probably won't read the second book unless the library has it or someone will loan it to her.

She loved LOTR, Narnia, and Harry Potter, BTW, so it's not an anti-fantasy thang.

Eragon. And definitely passing on the book. It was so written by a 17 year old that I'm surprised some publisher laughed him out of the place and said, be original instead of ripping everyone else off but the publisher was greedy and wanted to capitalize on the possible spill over of a boy wizard and another set of fiction made into movies to somewhat better success.

God, that movie sucks. Historically inaccurate to a ridiculous degree, and not even faithful in the slightest to the legend. It was so bad, I couldn't follow it and gave up after half an hour.

Brian De Palma directs Josh Hartnett, Scarlett Johannson, and Hillary Swank in the film noir murder mystery Black Dahlia, loosely based on the gruesome 1947 slaying of a young Hollywood starlet. I really didn't think it was all that great.

Horror icon Lon Chaney stars as a the chauffeur-turned-caretaker of three adult childlike orphans, who suffer from a rare dengerative disorder caused by inbreeding in 1968's Spider Baby. Of course, murder and mayhem ensue with the arrival of outsiders at the strange family's run-down mansion. Watch for Sid "Captain Spaulding" Haig as one of the inbred siblings.

Three men are shot into space but only one returns in 1955's The Quartermass Xperiment. Quickly quarantined for evaluation, scientists learn that the remaining astronaut is no longer the man they knew - and is infected with an alien that absorbs other lifeforms, leaving only a dried husk. This film reminded me of the life-force sucking space vampires in 1985's aptly titled Lifeforce.

No, although that was bandied about as a possibility for the end of Rocky 5.

In Rocky 6, he wins the decision against Dixon. Totally stupid. :dead:
The ending has him waiting in the ring for the decision to be announced and it is really lame, I'm glad Sly thought that through some more. The way it ends now is beautiful because he takes off out of the ring before hearing the decision since it didn't matter that he lost, just that he went and saw it through to the end. I love that movie. :)

I still haven't been able to watch much of anything lately.

I did catch Undead a couple days ago. Your typical (not so typical) zombie film. This movie had some good qualities and bad ones; I'm still on the fence about it. I could lean either way, saying that it was a decent movie or saying that it was horrible. If I had to, I'd probably say the bad outweighed the good, for the most part. Zombie fans should still check it out. It's one of the fun/comedy horror/zombie films so one can't be too harsh when judging it. Thats kinda why I have mixed feelings for it. I dunno.... lol


I've been watching episodes of Dead Like Me when I've had the time. I'm almost done with season 2 and I already want more. Sucks to know that when I finish these final couple of episodes, that its completely over; no more seasons, no more episodes. :( Damnit! Why do the good shows get cancelled much too early?!?!?!?!?! :mad:

No, it wasn't as good as the first. But it had SO many good moments. The "Butt Chug" was freakin' hilarious, even if it was stolen from a "Team Sanchez" bit.

What was the last sketch? Was it Ehren wearing the "beard"?

UKWildcat
03-31-2007, 02:32 AM
I watched Turistas(Unrated) this evening. The movie was kind of a mix between Hostel and Wolf Creek with elements of The Descent. Sounds like a pretty good combination right? Well, it was okay. Not great, but not horrible either. Definitely started out kind of slow-paced but picked up towards the middle and the end, much like the before-mentioned movies. The story was okay, a bit unoriginal, but I let that slide. For a young cast, the acting was alright. The chicks are all pretty hot, Olivia Wilde, Melissa George, Beau Garrett and of course, the locals. The gore was pretty good; nothing that was really over the top (well, with a couple of exceptions ;)) but there were definitely some uncomfortable moments. I do feel they skimped on the ending though; I was mostly disappionted with that.

Overall I thought the movie was okay. It was actually better than I was anticipating, so I was pleased with that (of course I went in with low expectations). Had some good elements, had some bad ones too. Depending on my mood I'd probably rate it somewhere between a 4-6, to possibly a 7(?!?), out of 10. Nah, probably not a 7. I don't know. I'm kinda mixed on this movie right now. I need to let it sink in, and I will certainly watch it again sometime in the future.

I would definitely recommend it as a rental for those of you who are fans of the genre.

Will Ferrell was at his zenith with Anchorman and will never top it, so I didn't expect Talladega to do that, but it was a real let down for me. Blades of Glory, on the other hand, was hilarious. lol lol lol

BountyHunterScum

The extended cut blows the original version completely out of the water and into orbit. This one has it all including Jimmy Weeks that spineless scumbag crooked FBI agent. A couple of the useless scenes like John Saint's model girlfriend and walking out of the strip-joint to the Cobra were cut because they were crap anyway. It adds even more depth to the movie. Thomas Jane works as Frank Castle, hell even Dolph Lundgren worked but not as well as Jane does. One because Jane is Castle's actual height six feet, two the Skull is present and three unlike the first one you actually feel remorse for the Castle family and then glad when the bad guys get what is coming to them. when the previews came out for this movie back in 2003 or so I thought Harry Heck was the guy from EL Mariachi but it was Mark Collie (who just happens to look like the other guy) from several Steven Segals flicks plus he is a real country singer.

"The Night Listener"- Had some decent expectations for this one and found it was medicore. It has some great creepy/suspenseful/WTF moments, but the ending lacked closure and it felt too short (only 81 minutes). Still, Robin Williams does play a great serious actor when he's given the chance. Gotta give him props; it was all fault of the script.

Have you seen The Illusionist GG? If so, how do you think it stacks up to The Prestige? If not, watch it and let us know!!!

JMG and I prefer The illusionist to The Prestige (I'm pretty sure he does anyways), not sure about the other folks who have seen both?!?!?

I've seen parts of The Illusionist, and I liked what I saw. I also like Edward Norton and Paul Giamatti as actors, so I think I'll watch the whole movie in the near future.

He's at home now and doesn't play on the internet much as I think he has a few brothers and limited connection. I'll tell him that he's on your list now.

Not a good enough excuse! :mad: Yea, he's definitely on the list. :mad::mad:


;)

You most definitely should! Be sure to let us know your thoughts and how you liked with regards to The Prestige.


I've actually watched a bunch of stuff the past couple of days. :crazed:
Here are the ones I can think of:
The Wizard of Oz - w/ my niece
Alien - HD
The Rock - HD
Scream - HD
SAW I
SAW II

Putting on SAW III right now.

I plan on relaxing and watching a bunch of movies this weekend now that I finished my 10 page research paper.

Just getting back from seeing Grindhouse. I enjoyed it, both parts and all. The "previews" were good too. :)

I too saw Grindhouse. I posted my thoughts in the thread. I really enjoyed it. I even liked it more than 300, so I guess that makes it my favorite movie of '07 (so far...)

The Good Shepard - pretty disappointing.

The Good Shepard - pretty diappointing.

Really? Well thats disappointing to hear. What didn't you like about it (no spoilers please)? I believe I have that one coming from Netflix tomorrow, so I'll try and get to it this weekend and post my thoughts. It's got a pretty stellar cast, so I'm atleast looking forward to that.


I just finished up watching Casino Royale for the first time. I thought this was a fantastic movie. Homeboy did a great job as Bond, I was really impressed. This one easily ranks into the top as far as Bond movies go. I haven't seen a majority of the older ones, but this one is much better than most of the more recent ones. I really enjoyed it. :thumbsup:

Without spoilers, I'll just say I thought it was slow moving...and I often like slow moving movies so I was surprised that I couldn't really get into this one that much. The cast is indeed stellar, no doubts there.

The hype they gave to this movie is criminal in my opinion because marketing attached the quote "the Godfather of CIA movies" which IMHO it clearly was not...so I was looking around online and I found reference to the quote being clipped from the longer quote of "for the first 50 minutes I thought DeNiro made the Godfather of CIA movies." Yeah, um, big difference :D considering the movie is almost 2 hours and 50 minutes long so that's 2 hours of non-Godfather-ness. lol

I might watch it again though to see if I can get into it more. Let me know what you think of it. :)

I have to rent this thing because I keep hearing from just about everyone how good it was. I didn't much care for much of the recent Bond films so I'm okay with a relaunch of the series.

Eariler today I took down Blades of Glory with Mr. Caesar. It was the second viewing for the both of us and I have to say I still enjoyed it.

I watched Click on starz. I saw it in theaters before. I think it's a pretty good movie. Gets to be kind of sad near the end, though...

I saw Blades of Glory last night.


Holy carp!!! That's all I can say.

That movie was hilarious and I can't wait for the next showing (movies are only $3 on base :p ). It was a good movie and because there were some drunks behind us being stupidly loud. Don't worry though. Ol' Slick chewed those little pricks out like no other (seriously)!!!

Grindhouse - Posted my thoughts on the double awesomeness/single total crapness of it.


The other day I finally made myself watch The Punisher: Extended Cut. Great stuff. The reinstated Jimmy Weeks plots line played out really nice, but the scene in Weeks' apartment almost made Frank come across bad. And as much as I love the movie, Travolta is still painful to watch in it.

Yesterday I caught 300 again in the theater. Excellent film, loved it even more.

I also watched Hostel. I'm really curious to see what Hostel II has in store for us.

I followed up Hostel with a viewing of Old School. I probably haven't seen Old School in about a year and I completely forgot how hilarious that movie is. I mean, of course I remember it being funny and all, but it was constant hilarity. Maybe I just needed a break from it. "Cheeeeeese..." ;)@Caesar. As far as Will Farrell acting, Frank the Tank has got to rank up there right behind Ron Burgundy. I haven't seen Blades yet so I don't know how good a job he does in that one.

Watched TMNT before work today. Much better than expected and some of the animation was insanely well done. Its a good thing I'm not 11 anymore or my head would probably exploded.

Watched Mike Judge's Idiocracy last night. Not bad, but I can see why it was shelved for so long.

did you go out and decorate your town with promotional light up signs for this movie?

Yeah, but the people in my town had the common sense to know that they weren't explosive devices, so I got off scott free. :D
