This is basically a thread where you can post and discuss what movies you have watched recently and what you thought of them. These movies can be old, new, in the theater, on dvd, tv, etc, it doesn't matter. It’s just a general thread. This would also be a good place to discuss films that don't need a thread dedicated to them, like Lollilove ;), j/k Caesar. I do ask one thing which applies mainly to the newer films; please try to avoid from posting any spoilers unless you give warning. Thank you. :D


Well I guess I'll start. I watched Running Scared (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0404390/) last Friday, on dvd, and it was surprisingly good. Sure, some of the parts of the movie and dialogue were kinda cheesy, (what move starring Paul Walker isn’t?) but overall it was a good film. I found one of the sub-plots in the movie to be pretty disturbing (if anyone has seen this film you probably know what I'm talking about) but it was well done and played out perfectly. It definitely added to the movie and made it even better. Running Scared definitely has its twists and turns although most of these occur towards the end of the film. I don’t want to give anything away but like I said, I was really surprised at what a good movie this turned out to be and I can highly recommend it, at least as a rental.

I have also recently watched Date Movie, well about the first 20 minutes of it, and had to stop watching. It was horrible. Stay far very far away from this one.

Sooo.... what have you all watched lately?

Good to hear. :thumbsup:


I also recently watched "Grandma's Boy" which turned out to be much better than I had anticipated. One character, JP I think his name was, killed the movie everytime he was on the screen, but other than that it was pretty funny and surprisingly decent.

I watched the The Great Raid last week, about the rescue of hundreds of American & Fillipino soldiers from a Japanese POW camp as US forces were retaking the Philipines. It was okay, not really that spectacular.

Picked up The Devil's Rejects at the library today and muddled through it tonight. I wasn't too impressed with this one, even with writer/director Rob Zombie turning the tables on his homicidal family in the last reel.

Have you seen "The Hole" or "The Jacket" JJB? :lipsrsealed:

I didn't care much for The Hole, it had it's moment. I really enjoyed The Jacket however, not only for it's moments, but I thought it was a great film and it was really well done. Both Knightley and Brody did fantastic jobs, as well as Kristofferson and Jennifer Jason Leigh. If you haven't seen this one yet, I highly recommend it. :thumbsup:

UKWildcat
06-21-2006, 11:48 PM
I haven't seen Love Actually. Is that a good flick?

I wouldn't really bother with "The Hole". The Hole actually wasn't available in the US at first because when Knightley had her moment in that movie she was underage at the time; I think she was like 17 or something. When I saw "The Hole" it was a while ago and a different region dvd I believe. But anyways, you basically see the same moments and better ones ;) in "The Jacket" and watch a really good film in the process. :thumbsup:

Nice. I'd love to watch Firefly over again but I just have too much carp I need to get to first. That was an outstanding show and Serenity was a great movie. :thumbsup:

Love Actually is a great movie, though I'm sure darthvyn will disagree if he stops by. It's a bunch of wonderful character studies going on simultaneously, with some beautiful acting by the likes of Sabe, Severus Snape, and that moron who got busted with a nasty-arse ugly hooker when he had Liz Hurley waiting at home. (Seriously. WTF?) :beard:

I've voiced my opinions on Firefly/Serenity due to my unabashed annoyance at Joss Whedon (I don't give him the credit to refer to it as "hatred") before, but I'll point out again I'd rather be castrated by a blind midget with a power drill than sit through even a minute of anything he had any involvement with whatsoever.

Started off today by watching the movie "Friday Night Lights." One of my favorite movies about high school football. I never get tired of that one or "Remember the Titans."

Later I finished the Up, Up and away Superman documentary. It was great!! Kevin Spacey does a wonderful job narrating it and it had some wonderful information.

Then after that I cracked open my vol 3 set of the Superman animated series. Sure I have seen all these episodes over and over again but its still cool to watch my favorite ones on there in the order I choose.

Your loss ! :(

I couldn't give two dribbles about Buffy (or Angel :D ) as I've never seen a complete (or even half of an :D ) episode so I couldn't comment on *any* of his other work? :confused:

I just know that Firefly is some good watchin' :thumbsup:

I respect your disinterest Chux, but I am curious as to why you hate him - is it the Buffy thing ? :confused:

edit: or did I misread your post and wrongly assume that you haven't seen any of Firefly? If you have already watched it and don't like it, then please disregard this post. :)

Nah, I saw him speak at Comic-Con (I got into the theater early for the King Kong presentation, and saw his entire thing on Serenity). The guy was such a blithering idiot, I find it very tough to believe that anything worthwhile could come from his diseased and tormented mind. Nothing to do with Buffy, though the episode or two I caught of it were a bit boring and over the top. Oh, and there's only one Buffy, and her name is Kristy Swanson.

Nor have I Caesar.

Well I watched 16 Blocks last night, I think the name was. Bruce Willis and Mos Def. The movie was okay, can't say I recommend it; maybe when it's on cable. Mos Def did a really good job though.

I'm going to try and get through some movies this weekend. I've got Underworld: Evolution and The Hills Have Eyes (UR) from Netflix. I'm really looking forward to both of those.

I just watched United 93 at the $1.50 theater. It was pretty slow in the beginning but still interesting to see how bass ackwards the military and FAA were...I did enjoy it, but it ended up making me mad again and very sad. And even though you know what happens, there's this faint glimmer of hope that they'll actually make it. :(

I thought the one or two episodes I saw of Buffy were terrible and I never saw Angel.
I saw Serenity before any of Firefly, and that really put a damper on me seeing Firefly (and I still think seeing Firefly is necessary to understanding/enjoying Serenity, but I digress). I just happened to grab a disc at video store one day and I was hooked.

And Joss has done a bang up job on Astonishing X-Men.

I watched Underworld Evol just the other day and thought it was pretty good too. I really enjoyed the first one so it's nice to see a sequel that measures up. The "origin" storyline was well-done & and I liked the return of the characters from the last film - Viktor, Amelia, & Kraven. I wonder what happened to that kiss-*** blonde vamp from the first movie though.

UKWildcat
06-25-2006, 03:20 AM
You're right, the "origin" storyline was very well done. Markus and William Corvinus were just outstanding; amazing really. The special effects were incredible and much improved. Especially the morphing between human form and lycan and such. I really enjoyed the first Underworld but I thought this one was better. This is definitely a sequel that measures up to the first and supersedes it, imo. I've already watched it again. :D I recommend it to all!

I also watched The Hills Have Eyes (unrated). I still don't know what to make of it. I'm not sure if I liked it, hated it, or what. I guess it was okay. I dunno.... I was disappointed, I know that much.

Night Watch ? What one ? :) Not the Ewan McGregor movie, was it? :)

Nah, not that one, though I did see that yeeeeears ago. Can't say I remember much about it.

The one I watched was a Russian film that was just recently released in the US. Here is the plot synopsis for those of you that have never heard of it:


Among normal humans live the "Others" possessing various supernatural powers. They are divided up into the forces of light and the forces of the dark, who signed a truce several centuries ago to end a devastating battle. Ever since, the forces of light govern the day while the night belongs to their dark opponents. In modern day Moscow the dark Others actually roam the night as vampires while a "Night Watch" of light forces, among them Anton, the movie's protagonist, try to control them and limit their outrage.

It was a very interesting sci-fi/horror/action movie. The movie was based off the first installment of Sergei Lukianenko's novels (none of which I've read) about an epic struggle b/w good and evil. The sequel Day Watch has already been filmed and is released in Russia but a translated/dubbed and official version has yet to make it over here. When it does I'll definitely be watching because I'm very curious to see what happens. I guess I could read the novels... :rolleyes: :D

Last week i seen "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" for the first time. I bought the DVD about two weeks prior to that and found the time to pop it in. I liked it a lot. While it paid homage to several movies i thought it had its own unique thing about it. I wish i had gone to see it on the big screen when it first came out. I wouldnt mind hearing about a sequel for it either.

I really enjoyed The Exorcism of Emily Rose. I thought it was very well done. You are right, it's no Exorcist, but I put it right after The Exorcist as far as Possession/Satan horror movies go.

I watched Stagefright last night which was directed by Michele Soavi, the same guy who did Cemetery Man. I didn't enjoy it as much as Cemetery Man but it was still a pretty good little slasher film nonetheless.

I've already watched a couple of movies today. First I watched Return of the Living Dead 4 : Necropolis. After that I watched UltraViolet. Now what to watch? I may put on Syriana and give that a shot.

The Girl Next Door is an excellent movie and is accompanied with an outstanding soundtrack. :thumbsup:

I ended up watching Syriana yesterday and I wasn't overly impressed with it. After that I watched Just Friends, great movie that I have watched several times already. Then I watched BloodRayne. This movie wasn't that great but it did have a lot of blood and gore. The effects were a little over the top but they were fun at they same time. And then I watched Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle. Hilarious movie that I could watch everyday if I had to. The sequel has been announced and Harold and Kumar will indeed be going to Amsterdam.

I watched a little bit of Kung Fu Hustle this evening. It's an enjoyable parody of the glut of popular "wire-fu" & "cgi-fu" martial arts movies that have been released in the last few years.

I watched Final Destination 3, the theatrical cut, last night and I wasn't impressed with it at all. A couple of the death scenes were pretty cool but that was about it. I am going to check out the dvd again though and see what this whole "choose their fate" thing is.

I also put on Enemy of the State but fell asleep half way through. I forgot how good that movie was and there are a buttload of supporting actors in it that I completely forgot about like Barry Pepper, Jason Lee, Jack Black, Jamie Kennedy and a couple others. Going to finish this one up tonight.

I don't think he'd be able to pull off a big action flick. Too much character development in M. Nights movies. The action scenes in Unbreakable were pretty small.
Besides, he's done a great comic book movie with Unbreakable.

I watched it last Saturday on HBO for the first time since hating it in the theater last summer, thinking maybe I'd like it more the second time around. I didn't.

I'll tell you what's next on my To Watch list, the next two are The Last Boy Scout and The Program. I just got back from a horror movie convention and among the guests were Danielle Harris (Mike Myers' niece from Halloween 4 and 5) who was Bruce Willis' kid in Last Boyscout and another guest was Andrew Bryzniarski aka Leatherface from the crappy new Chainsaw Massacre movies - but he played Lattimer in The Program which was cheesy but a staple of my high school football experience. So yeah, I haven't seen either of those in a long time and now they are up on my list.

Oh, and I need to watch They Live for the first time in awhile since Rowdy Roddy Piper was there this weekend as well. :D

That's crazy you should mention Danielle Harris. I just watched Halloween: 25 yrs of Terror yesterday and obviously Ms Harris was featured in it. She mentioned a serious stalker she had a while back and she said she didn't like doing the conventions/autographs and stuff because since they are public, she doesn't know if that crazy stalker is going to show up. I hope your not the stalker Caesar. ;) lol 25 Years of Terror was really good btw, I can't wait to check out the rest of the stuff on the disc(s). :thumbsup: I also got the new Divimax editions of Halloween 4 and 5 and I can't wait to check those out as well.

It was cool, thanks. :) Danielle was the nice followup to a show a few months back (the one with Jenna) where I also met Ellie Cornell.

Danielle was cool, she's pretty hot nowadays and as for my stalkerishness, no worries all was kept in check. Her boyfriend was with her at her table all day but I know I could have taken him. :crazed:

I told her I love Halloween 4 and it scared the heck out of me as a kid...then I told her I liked Halloween 5 at first but it got wayyyyyyyy too goofy at the end and really sucked and she seemed to agree somewhat with the goofiness of it. Then I told her that as cool as Paul Rudd went on to become, I don't blame her for skipping Halloween 6 because they really went wacko with that one.

I've not yet seen the 25 Years of Terror deal yet but I NEED to soon...Anchor Bay had it playing at their booth and it looked really cool.

With the free on-demand movies from cable, I watched Psycho last night (the original version) and Cable Guy today. Psycho was quite a lot creepier (and better) than I expected; it was nice to see a B&W movie that didn't have shots that lasted for half an hour.

Then I told her that as cool as Paul Rudd went on to become, I don't blame her for skipping Halloween 6 because they really went wacko with that one.
She kinda explains that on 25Yrs. She mentions that she didn't like the way she was going to get killed and they weren't going to pay her hardly anything more than what she made in 5. Halloween 6 was really wacky. I want to see the "Halloween 6: Producers Cut". It is supposed to be a lot better than the Halloween 6 that was cut/edited/reshot and released. Have you seen the Producers Cut Caesar? On 25Yrs they talk about one day maybe releasing it officially b/c all you can get are crappy bootlegged copies.

What JimJam said.

Talladega CERTAINLY had its moments but it lacked an overall continuity of funniness for me. Anchorman is probably in my Top 10 of all time, well Top 5 comedies for sure and I was not even hoping for Talladega to come close to it and it's a good thing my expectations were low or I would have been REALLY disappointed. :D

Still, it had its moments. My favorites:

1) the coffin joke
2) Molly Shannon kissing that old guy, passing out drunk, and making that comment about seeing her husband naked
3) Amy Adams :love: Everything about her in the movie, all of her scenes. :love:

I agree with Anchorman, for sure... but Elf? I really like John Favreau and Will Ferrell but I didn't care much for that film. It was mediocre at best, imo. I would much rather watch Talladega Nights again. John C. Reilly was awesome as well as Sacha Baren Cohen. Amy Adams was nice too. She's right up your alley Cae. ;)

Speaking of S B Cohen, you all going to check out the Borat movie? I'm really looking forward to it. Out of all of his characters on Da Ali G show, Borat was my favorite. Should be a funny movie. :thumbsup:

Oh yeah, Borat is hilarious! A shame that he only cameoed in the Ali G movie. :(

I love Elf, I'd put it in Ferrell's Top 5 for sure, after Anchorman, Old School, and A Night at the Roxbury. Wedding Crashers could get honorable mention but he's not even credited as it is not a starring role for him. But Elf is great, I love it. My 4th favorite Will Ferrell movie it is, then. :D

I've watched a couple episodes of Surface on dvd the past couple of days. I thought it was a great show and NBC shouldn't have canned it. It was much better than that Invasion show on ABC, IMO. That would be sweet if the Sci Fi channel were to pick it up. :yes: :thumbsup:

Last night I watched The Exorcist III while going to sleep. Too bad I fell asleep before I got to finish it.

I've also watched Harold and Kumar several times, or had it on in the background, hence the av. Gotta love some Freakshow.

So that's what the hell a Borat is. I just recall at Comic-Con they, totally unannounced, play a pretty damned explicit clip in one of the Hollywood panel sessions. Nothing on the schedule to indicate it, just wedged in right before Stardust/The Transformers.

That reminds me: I need to write to Comic-Con and complain about this. I haven't done so yet, and it had slipped my mind. I personally wasn't offended, but there were a lot of kids in the room whose parents had no reason to believe there'd be five minutes of two naked guys in a fight that simulated various sex acts. I really felt bad for a guy who walked in with his (probably) five year old daughter right as it came on, and stood there in the aisle with a "holy tapdancing crap, what the hell am I going to tell her about this?" look on his face.

If the schedule says Quentin Tarantino or Kevin Smith are giving a panel, you know to expect a lot of profanity. Don't bring the little ones unless you don't mind hearing the F-bomb fifty times in a ten minute period. But this was beyond ridiculous to show without any indication that anything out of the ordinary would be on the screen.

And it was funny for about three seconds of the five minutes, then got older than any joke I've ever seen.

My problem wasn't that he wasn't funny (though he seems like an updated of Yakov Smirnov to me), or that the scene showed was offensive, but that it was so explicit, and shown completely without warning. When the movie comes out, if the scene isn't cut, you'll see what I mean.

I watched a movie called "I'm Not Scared (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0326977/)" last night. It is an Italian thiller/suspense/mystery type movie and it was a pretty good film. It won a bunch of awards and got really good reviews. Has anyone else seen or even heard of this movie? If you want some more info on it, check the link above. You can also check out the trailer there too.



UKDub, in D&D Lloyd says "I'd like to eat HER liver with a bottle of CHIANTI" and then he and Harry make that slithering sound with their tongues. lol lol lol
This is during the fundraiser dinner, I believe. :grin:

AH HA! I know what you are talking about. Duhh... Talk about a brain-fart. Dumb and dumber is hilarious and has to be one of the funniest movies to come out in the past 15 years.

Somewhere In Time, the Richard Matheson fantasy about a playwright (Christopher Reeve) who wills himself back in time to meet the woman of his dreams (Jane Seymour). Watch for author Matheson in the 1912 sequence, he plays the "astonished man" who dismisses Reeve's shaving ability.

Into the West, a 12-hour mini-series that follows two families - one white, the other Lakota - over the course of 1825-1891 during the migration and settling of the American West.

Having relatively low expectations for V for Vendetta, I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Though I'll probably will never watch it again, I did nevertheless enjoy my first viewing.

Well, I watched Silent Hill earlier today and you were right Caesar. The environment was pretty freaky and the gore (mainly towards the end) was pretty good; but that was about it. It had potential but failed to deliver; it could have been much better. It was a little on the long side too, at a little over 2 hrs. I'd probably give it a D-.

Let's see two of the most ridiculous movies of all time. One has by far one of the greatest lines in movie history, another just ruined one of my all time favorite cartoons. The first, and the line says it all "I am tired of these mother******* snakes on this mother******* plane." Yes Snakes on a plane funny movie, even funnier since I am so afraid of snakes and it was great to see everyone in the movie screaming and jumping while I just laughed.

The other is Fat Albert. no words can describe how upset i was over this flick. i am peved that Bill Cosby gave his blessing on this film.

You know what C? I don't think I have ever watched Carlito's Way all the way through. From you watching it twice, I'm taking it that it is a great movie? I love Pacino too, which is even more strange as to me not ever watching the complete movie. I could possibly say the same thing for Donnie Brasco.

Last night I watched Wrong Turn. The night before that I watched Halloween 4 (most of it), and the night before that I watched House of Wax. Yes, it's almost October and I'm starting to watch my horror movies. :D

I've also watched more episodes of House Season 2 as I'm trying to finish it before Season 3 starts next week.

It's been on HBO a bunch lately so that's how I watched it twice. Damn, that is a good movie.

Same with Donnie Brasco, even though they changed the ending and stuff from history...but a great movie.

Carlito's Way is spectacular, I highly recommend it. :grin: I never watched that prequel they made and I don't plan to any time soon. Ridiculous that they brought back Luis Guzman to play a different character (not a slam against him, because he's great in the original). :)

I'll be sure to set the DVR to record it, if it comes on soon. The crazy thing is, I actually owned the movie at one point too (on VHS). I attempted to watch it on several occasions but fell asleep or something. After that, I kinda lost any desire to finish it. I'll be sure to add it to my "To Watch" list since you highly recommend it.

Ive been a fan of this movie for at least two years, i first seen it on AMC. I like it a lot more than i do Scarface. Good story and Pacinco and Penn play their parts well. Its too bad it seems like a lot of people slept on it.

Caught Belle de Jour on IFC the other night. This 1967 French film follows a newly-married doctor's frigid housewife as she explores her masochistic sexual dreams and desires by working in a small neighborhood brothel. The line between her dreams and reality become blurred at times, which allow for different interpretations of the film - fact, fantasy or a combination of the two.

Demi Moore is haunted by more than her deceased child in Half Light, a surprisingly enjoyable supernatural thriller. I admit I wasn't expecting much from this one, but found it better than such recent ghostly tales as Darkness, White Noise, and Dark Water.

Someone is stealing secret recipes from denizens in the enchanted forrest and it's up to Flipper the Frog to get to the bottom of the case in Hoodwinked. Centering around the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale, this poorly animated film leaves a lot to be desired. The only one who gets Hoodwinked is the viewer.

No prob C-Dog. :D While we are still on the topic of Ace Ventura; evidentally the new (widescreen) release is just the theatrical cut and doesn't include the bonus footage; I loved the dolphin trainer bit. :mad:

Yesterday I watched Dawn Of The Dead, the Extended Cut. Excellent film. Last night I watched a movie called Face, which is part of the Tartan Asia Extreme series. There were definitely some pretty creepy moments during the movie and it had a pretty good plot, but I wasn't overly impressed with it. It was alright I suppose.

Monster house, Cars, The ant bully, I'm a big big fan of CG toon movies. I can highly reccomend Cars and Monster house is fantastic. incredible motion capture work and a really good story. The ant bully just plain sucks though. it's like a sequel to Antz which in itself sucked.

I rewatched chicken little and thoroughly enjoyed it again. it doesn't seem to be diminishing in coolness. even Hoodwinked still seems fairly fresh on repeated viewings.

watched an episode of the ghost whisperer or whatever the hell its called and cried because it was so bad. Also saw an episode of the war at home and tried to chew my own hand off it was so so terrible.

older stuff i've watched, starship troopers just for Casper Van Dien's butt and the bright orange goo of the big beetle bug when it explodes and the brain sucking scene. And I'm currently slogging through the entire run of the Star trek movies. Mostly giggling at Shatners hair. I had to watch the theatrical release of The motion picture as that's all i have but look forward to seeing the directors edition when i get chance.

Looking forward to Barnyard, Open season, Flushed away and Happy feet. and the CGI TMNT movie. There's not much in the way of live action that appeals to me really. most of the movies due out soon seem really dull and dire. just more generic crud. or carbon copies and sequels. most of which look like they should have saved their money.

I love his "nothing fight" bit and the whole movie theater thing was great, especially when he did a slight tribue to his older stuff during the previews ("Where's the van?!??! The van was supposed to be here!!!") and the crowd went crazy when they heard it too. Oh, and the crying bit, God i loved that. Especially when he was talking about his Mom and Dad cos we all know mom comforts and dad makes you feel like an ***. Good stuff.

Over the past couple of days I have watched The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original version, new dvd release) and A Nightmare on Elm Street (new dvd release).

I can't wait to check out the extras on both films too. Excellent stuff! :thumbsup:

I have been watching Deadwood Season 2 lately. Thanks again UK for the hook up

No problem man. Glad you are enjoying it! :thumbsup:


What was up with Jordana Brewster's buttcrack? With as much screentime as it had, I thought it should have received a costarring credit. :confused:

Nice! Looking forward to that. :lipsrsealed:

I'm going to hold off on the Texas prequel until it hits dvd. Same with The Grudge 2. I really want to see both movies but it takes a quality film to get me off my arse and goto the theater nowadays. :D


I watched Click last night. I'm still not sure what I think about it. It was alright I suppose. Not Sandlers best, but not his worst either. It was okay. I absolutely love Kate Beckinsale though....she's swell. :love:

I'm feeling a Firefly marathon coming up soon....

A Firefly marathon would be great. If you include Serenity, that's like 13-14 hours.

Did anyone ever take down that Firefly/Serenity marathon? That is still on my "to do list". :yes:


I watched a sweet little piece on slasher films the other night on Starz called "Going to Pieces: The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film". It was a good hour and a half discussion of the development of the "Slasher Film". A lot of really good stuff. Lots of good interviews with the likes of John Carpenter, Rob Zombie, Wes Craven and many actors and producers as well. There were also a ton of film clips from the most popular and most controversial movies listed. It was really well done. I definitely suggest you horror buffs to check it out. :thumbsup:

I liked the ethereal Silent Hill, although it seemed to drag at times. I've never played the video games so I'm not really knowledgeable about the storyline. Still, I prefer something new to retreading some old game plot.

Serenity was pretty good too once I re-acclimated myself to Joss-speak or Whedonese. He's so shiny. I never watched Firefly so the film was my first intro to this universe. The Reavers were cool - kind of like living dead in space.

Missed about a ten-minute block during Wolf Creek but I think I got the gist of it. Felt to me like a Texas Chainsaw Massacre set in the Aussie Outback. It's one of those movies that isn't fantastic, but you want to watch anyway to get the entire story.

Watched "The Island" on HBO the other day.
Not as bad as I'd heard, but wasn't really that good either.

I bought "Feast" yesterday and i'm pretty excited to watch it.

I'm still catching up on "Firefly" and then plan to jump onto "Serenity" so please don't get spoilerific with me, folks! :crazed:

How do you like Firefly, JMGuy ? :)

I'll be putting Dawn '78 in my player this weekend...it's been way too long. Probably find time for Day and Land throughout the next week, too. :grin: Maybe Night '90, time permitting.

I guess it's b/c most of Romero's films aren't "Slashers" per se, but are "Undead/Zombie" movies. But even with that said, I still thought they would have atleast mentioned him especially since Tom Savini was prominantly featured throughout the special.

I enjoyed Wolf Creek for the most part. The beginning was a bit slow but it really picked up half way through. It definitely wasn't as bad as I was anticipating, that's for sure.

That stinks. You can probably download it somewhere *cough*torrent*cough* or watch it on Youtube. :crazed: ;) Actually, at some point it'll probably be released on DVD one way or another.

Sweet! Be sure to let us know how Feast is. I have that in my Netflix queue. :D



Well I watched "The Butterfly Effect 2" the other night. Yup, it was pretty bad. I want that 1hr and 20 mins of my life back! :mad:

I watched Cronenberg's "The Fly" last night. Great movie! Never did see the original though.

I'm really enjoying it. It has a great storyline and a FANTASTIC set of characters. Plus, they got a great set of lovely ladies on Serenity. I mean, Kaylee is adorable, and River is fiesty in a creepy zoned out chick sorta way. lol I just watched "Shindig" a few weeks ago where Sheperd got his arse shot, so I need to catch up. Sadly, with the Master's degree in full swing, this isn't looking like it's anytime soon.

but I will DEFINATELY be watching "Feast" tomorrow night (i'm giving myself two hours off) and i'll let you folks know how it is. :thumbsup:

I saw that too. And oddly enough, I now want to see "Silent Night, Deadly Night". Tim Allen's Santa Claus? Lame. Killer Santa Claus? Interesting.

Here is my review of "FEAST" I posted on my blog. It's pretty spoiler free, I just mention names and talk about a performance of two. However, if you want to remain totally a virgin for the flick, don't read. I loved it.

"Feast"- Alright, if you don't know the history behind this flick, pay attention: this was the winner/flick that "Project Greenlight" did last season for their horror movie. The movie had some production issues as it was a first time director, but once they found their groove, everything flowed. The result is a hysterical, jumpy, blood and gore fest of "Evil Dead" and "Day of the Dead" proportions. This flick has everything and it has CULT CLASSIC written all over it (not really, the DVD just says "FEAST," but you get me). The plot of the movie is pretty simple: a band of strangers must.......band together to face some hell spawn beast that is prowling outside. Did I mention they were hungry? They try to get in, our human friends don't want that and fun ensues. What's great is that the flick, along with all cult classics, knows what it's doing from the first frame. Small example: when we meet the first main character, named Bozo, the screen stops and it brings up a few stats on the guy, kinda like, "Name: Bozo, Occupation: town Jackass" and it also gives you a "Fun Fact" and "Life Expectancy." It's funny, funny ****. Like when the kid in the wheelchair and his stats come up, the "life expectancy" says, "They wouldn't kill the kid in the wheelchair, would they?" The rest of the notes are great stuff. The characters have wacky names like "Hero", "Heroine", "Beer Guy" and "Coach" and yes, "Jason Mewes" who plays himself. However, I have to give a shout out to Henry Rollins is great in his role. He's such a go-getter, cheeseball that you can't help but love the guy. However, I was waiting for him to strip down to a pair of running shorts and start singing, holding the mic in that wacky Rollins Band way (some of you know of what I speak!) Back to the names or lack of them: It doesn't matter though as nobody really uses any names in the flick. Seriously, if you were getting attacked by hell beasts, would you care if somebody got your name right? The movie has some really hysterical parts and a few jumps and what's great is that nobody is really safe. Anybody can get picked off and that's one of the reasons to enjoy this flick (along with the fact it's just solid fun). The gore level is off the charts and i'll say that this flick goes down as one of the GORIEST and BLOODIEST films I've ever seen, ever. It's up there with "Slither" (which hits DVD next Tuesday!!!!!) in terms of gore and blood: limbs get removed, eyes get plucked, bodies devoured, the works. One fantastically gory scene involves maggots, a whoooooooooooooole lot of maggots. Be warned, if you don't like gore, get the hell away from this flick, head to the drama section and rent either "The Notebook" or "Beaches" and call it a night. For the rest of us who love a solid, fun filled, gore fest with a few surprises, we'll be enjoying ourselves in the next room. Rating- *** out of ****

Good review of "Feast", JMG. I watched it today, and I thought it was average at best. I did enjoy the scenes of gore (why I rented it) and the blood but other than that I got kind of bored with some of the movie during the downtime when they were trying to figure out how to leave the tavern.

Just watched Silent Hill. I thought it was OK. A little off the video games(I never played 3) but pretty close ot the characters from all of them.

Rhinestone.

A few days ago I got up extra early for work around 5am and it was playing on HBO so I watched it for awhile before I left...I forgot how crusty that movie was! lol When Sly was decked out in his shiny singing cowboy regalia, I about ****ed myself with laughter. :grin:

The honor of Worst Stallone Movie usually seems to go to "Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot" or sometimes "Oscar"...but I think Rhinestone is overlooked in this category.

By the way, in case you didn't notice, Dolly Parton has ginormous breasts.

Heck yea! Each year Silent Night, Deadly Night always makes it into my dvd rotation around Christmas time. :thumbsup: The second one as well, which has the infamous "Garbage Day" scene. lol

Nope, never noticed. :p lol

Awesome review of "Feast" JMG! I'm very much looking forward to watching this film, even moreso after reading your post. I'll definitely let you guys know what I think of it after I see it, which will hopefully be w/in the next week or so.



I didn't have to work yesterday so I stayed home and watched movies all day, none of which I had seen before. The first movie I watched was "Closer", which I rather enjoyed. It was a bit crude at times but the acting was superb. Gotta love "Stripper Portman" too. The second movie I watched was "The Fifth Element". Yes, I had never seen this movie before. I really enjoyed it too. That Chris Tucker is crazy... and I absolutely love Jovovich. :love: The third and final movie I watched yesterday was "The Omen", the new one. It had its few moments but overall, I wasn't impressed. Not nearly as good as the original IMO.

I watched Dead Man a few days ago. This B&W western features Johnny Depp as a tenderfoot accountant who becomes an old west outlaw after shooting a man during a lover's quarrel. Wounded, Depp is nursed back to health by the Indian "Nobody," who ends up being a kind of spirit guide. Strange film.
