Last thread got epically big [PART ONE (http://www.providermodule.com/forum/showthread.php?1095-Last-Movie-You-Watched)], thought we'd start over. Post the last movie you watched here!

Just saw Inception last Sunday. Didn't really go in expecting much more than a Matrix stylized action flick, but thought overall it was pretty decent. By the time it got 3 levels deep, I was really digging the division of time and how it was specific to each level.

I seriously want to see it too! I only saw Toy Story 3 the other day due to the fact that Inception was palying too late for us :(

And Beetlejuice is always full of win if you ask me. I've seen that one a good 20 times or so.

The actual film that has been memorable in the past few weeks has been The Collector. I had my hopes very low for this film.. From the Director of saw 4, 5, 6 or something like that....I was like ..yea, okay. But damn, this film had me going from beginning to end. Besides the audio soundtrack... it was filled with substance and gore. A total win in my book!!! Plus it had the Gretchen girl from Heroes!

This movie has no plot other than a bunch of masochistic couple who kill people while trying not to move out of their new house.

It even has True Blood's Anna Paquin. But her role is minor. Bleh.

Inception. This is film of the year for me. Not only that, but I believe it is nearing the top of my list of favorite movie. Everything was seamlessly put together with solid acting and amazing visuals. Not once was I bored, annoyed, or even a little bit uninterested. The tension was set up beautifully and the ever so small amounts of comedy hit their cues without being in your face (unlike a certain bazooka in a certain Batman film *sad face*). This Nolan's best bit of writing and directing to date. In addition to the aforementioned I'd say that for such a complicated story it was very easy to follow while being complicated and engaging. I think a good 95% of the audience got it without problems, and this is usually the same crowd that gets confused with films like Public Enemies. To top it all off, the crowd erupted in applause after the credits began rolling. Bravo, Christopher Nolan, Bravo!

Inception - great movie, and those who haven't seen it: go watch it with as less information you can. I avoided watching trailers (except one in theatres I couldn't avoid ofcourse) and I think the less you know the more it'll surprise you. You would expect the storyline to be complicated with a concept like that, but as mentioned by others, it's pretty easy to get. At some points maybe it was a bit too over-explained to me, but I seem to have a talent to get complicated storylines (I remember I had to explain a movie like Oldboy and the series The Prisoner to people while I think they were pretty easy to 'get'.

Eyes Wide Shut - Never seen that movie till yesterday. I have the dvd for years now, but never watched it. I watched it since I was looking for my Clockwork Orange dvd, which I don't seem to find. Maybe I gave it to somebody and never got it back, or maybe I owned it on vhs and it's still at my parent's house. Anyway EWS was second option :-) But it's not too bad, I liked the music in the ceremony scene.

I saw Inception last night. Much better than I expected!!!!!!! Very good film.

Just saw Final Destination 4 because it was on HBO. Every one of these films gets progressively worse. This has to be one of the worst thriller/suspense franchises ever. You can totally tell this was made to be in 3d (which you can see were cheese effects). I'm sick of these 15 minute scenarios to see that it was only a vision of what's to come.

better news... Salt is next weekend! I can't wait!!!!

This movie is depressing to watch not just scary. :( It really hurts of what it feels like to lose a child and go insane afterwards. :/ The so-called twisted ending, well, pay attention to the clues. At first half of the movie, I thought the boy was fucking kidnapped to a psychopath German woman who got batshit insane.. But nooo. The 2nd half well, see for yourself. Almost the first half of the movie felt like Hills Have Eyes hence why she's on island where there are full of trailer trash park inhabitants.

3/5. And the producers are the same people who did Pan's Labyrinth and Orphanage.

What could've been a good TV movie version of Lost.. Remember the Lost episode about the black smog monster? Here it is!!! Only this time, this one possesses any living thing including plants ala The Ruins and humans ala 28 Days Later. The only weakness is by some clean oxygen white smoke!!! Funny but effective.

Cheesy yet fun to watch. The ending was just WTF?!?! The plothole was that the smog monster enters the human, behaves like a zombie kicking ass, and when you shoot or stab, it just PENETRATES RIGHT THROUGH IT as though the human being possessed was made out of smoke.

^man why do all the b-movies get some amazing posters? That looks really cool, and it surprises me that it turns out to be a cheesy little horror movie. Not that cheese is totally bad, but it's just a shame that some awesome movies get shitty posters (Iron Man 2) and some b-movies get fantastic ones (the one you mentioned)

Oh and last movie: Dodgeball.

Wrong turn meets The Descent. Yes, the girl who was Juno in Descent is here!! She's the same kick-ass cannibal killer.

Originally shot on location in South Africa but the main setting for the island in the movie is supposed to be MY COUNTRY: PHILIPPINES.. Yes, you heard me. Here, the cannibals are called "ASWANG." Yes, that's a Filipino word for Monsters who feast on human female babies. Not only that, they can even transform into those flying demons from Army of Darkness. Also, they can even transform into normal humans and wild dogs too!! Nice.

They're fucking creepy looking esp. the scene with the dead baby with bulging red eyes and monster teeth. Fun action/adventure/cannibal flick indeed.

Oh, and you should watch out for those native tribes speaking Filipino. You don't need subs for that even if you need a translator. Hell, the actress who played Descent's Juno is Half-Filipina. Watch out for her talking in my Philippine native language. She even sings a Filipino song in one scene where the campers are usually tired and telling aswang stories.

P.S. FINALLY, Americans spelled my country correctly on this.

Aussie's own Hills Have Eyes. And at first, I thought it was gonna be a creature feature about a Tasmanian tiger killing people but no. Fairly decent enough.

The ending was mindfuckery. The little girl had false teeth all along and she reveals that her teeth is much like that Tasmanian tiger. I think I'm gonna get nightmares about that girl biting your face off

Only disappointments: Nina/Anna Williams sibling feud is sidelined and reduced to being Kazuya's assassins and whores to get laid. :P No Paul Phoenix, Lei, Gun Jack, or the rest of the Tekken characters from Tekken 3. Esp. Ling Xiaoyu which was supposed to be Jin's childhood schoolmate.

No Armor King/King characters, plus Alex and Roger. :p No Julia Chan... marshall Law isn't a Bruce Lee look-alike more like Thailander crappy look to me. Steve Fox is being reduced to being Jin's coach.

Although the main story is supposed to be Jin/Heihachi/Kazuya feudal wars.

I'm surprised Heihachi turned out to be the good guy.. But still I liked Kazuya as the main bad-ass dad of Jin.

Anyway, FUCK IT. Who cares if storylines or characters are lacking just like in the game, it still maintains the same feeling in Tekken games.. I liked how they even used a Select Fighter Hologram effects to add the feel to the game and their environments when you select like in the games are just HOLOGRAPHIC IMAGES!!!! NICE.

It had a few gory moments too like when Jin gets sliced by Kazuya's battle axe although I don't recall in the games Kazuya used them in battle.

In short: Don't expect the storylines to be the same as the Tekken games series, JUST FUCKING ENJOY. The highlight is usually the Iron Fist Tournament. It's the equivalent of a more brutal dark toned version of Van Damme's Bloodsport and of course we have nodding references to the game itself.

I liked the part where Raven and Eddy matched each other's moves almost spot-on just like in the games. Same goes with Yoshimitsu. And Bryan Fury? is he really cyborg like he was in the game? Cos he behaves like ala Bionic style fighting.

And I don't recall Christie (eddy's granddaughter) as Jin's lovelife. :p

P.S. WHO THE FUCK is Miguel Rojo and Draganuv? Are they part of the Tekken 6 series or Tekken 5's unlockable characters?

I give this one 3/5. Heihachi Mishima looks like an evil version of Mr. Miyagi and Shang Tsung put together. Yes, Heihachi is played the same Japanese guy who played Shang Tsung in the 1st MK movie. Hahah. No wonder he looks familiar. And another BIG PLUS side, their costumes are really spot on esp. Jin's trademark power gloves and his black pants with a blue fire logo on the right side of it.

P.S.S. This movie a million times better than that PG-13 shit Karate Kid remake. Cos this movie just made me feel like I'm watching a Karate Kid sequel hence the sentimental feelings of Steve Fox's towards Jin about how fighting isn't just about killing people blah blah blah.

^ Surprised by that review. Unsure if I wanna see it or not. I love the game series but doesn't sound like they had hardly anyone in it, just the main characters.

Glad to see Bryan is in the movie. I knew he was going to be and all but the lack of people in it made me think they revoked his presense. He's my favorite character in the game series to play with after the Misihima/Kazama families.

Australia's own version of Maximum Overdrive. But only this time it has a mindfuck twisted plotline about the mysterious double trailered road train...

Pay attention to the clues besides the 4 victims experiencing hallucinations of Cerberus. Yes, you heard me. The 3 headed hell hound!!! And also, the clue is the truck's hood ornament which is of course the 3 headed dog Cerberus. Another clue you need to pay attention is the 2 trailers attached to the road train. You also may notice one of the victims saw the truck's gas tank and it HAS NO FUEL IN IT!!!! So, how does the truck run by itself with no fuel? Are there any other mysteries lurking behind those 2 huge trailers attached to it?

I won't spoil it for you but it gives a whole new meaning to the term, MONSTER TRUCK. Literally.

Also, there's another supernatural stuff besides the truck being possessed. It can even possess other people who try to drive it themselves and they go apeshit on each other on who's driving the truck over!!!

A very good low budget Aussie flick besides the fact that the old 80's horror flicks always have trucks and cars running over people without drivers in it.But this one is TOTALLY DIFFERENT and has a few mind tricks up its engine or trailer for that matter. LOL. ENJOY.

I've always admired psychological thrillers for the way they challenge the viewer, keeping you guessing till the very end. I think Shutter Island did this very well as we are challenged to either believe what the movie is presenting us from the point of view of the main character, or begin to question his sanity and the realness of what is occurring, as well as the characters true roles and intentions. I personally thought the twist was evident from about two thirds in, but it was still very enjoyable to watch everything pan out and the story-line continued to strongly develop till the end of the movie. It was also directed very well and had some visually beautiful parts to accompany the already intriguing story-line, especially in the dream scenes.



http://i35.tinypic.com/4t10xz.jpg

I was very unimpressed with this movie. There was no development whatsoever in the story-line and there weren't any well filmed scenes or impressive special effects (that are usually common within the genre) that could have at least been relied upon to visually make up for the lack of content. Though the concept of a pandemic disease was interesting at first (but also very overdone), overall I found this movie to be very boring.


http://i35.tinypic.com/1zqss9w.jpg

Revisited an old favourite. The thing I like most about this movie is the way it plays with your emotions and forces you to feel empathy for Alex, (the main character and villain), despite the brutal acts of rape and violence he commits, and the way he's still successfully presented as a quirky, likable character.

A great combo of creature feature horror stuff and natural disaster movie.. A hurricane storm plus a 2 week hungry tiger on the loose inside the house. And there's even a mystery bad guy besides the tiger trying to kill them. Let's just say it had something to do with buying the house and lot for a stupid safari zoo and making quick money for that.

And the tiger IS NOT CGI at all. For real!!! This is one of those rare creature feature horror flicks that don't rely on crappy CGI at all.

P.S. Meatloaf has a small role on this one. He's a circus tiger trainer.

4/5.

Fairly good movie despite the fact it screams 300 meets King Arthur meets Gladiator. Best scenes: The Centurion squad gets ambushed by huge fireball boulders rolling down the forest roads pwnng the shit out of them.

Another best scene: The roman swordsman plants his big sword into the enemy's genitals. Fucking ouch!! Lots of torn heads, torso, blood splattering ala 300 like I said. And women portrayed as bad-ass bitches Picts assassins. And one of them has this "super senses" like a wolf. She even gets to fight a Roman General halfway through.

I'm surprised Neil Marshall directed this since he's the same guy who did The Descent. The story is not much to say but it also felt like A Roman version of Saving Private Ryan and Band of Brothers. style to the rescue plotline.

3/5. Even the trailer really did justice on the whole movie:

Fucking wow. This even enhances further my deepest phobia of going to hell literally just for sins that are considered unhealthy if you do it your entire life. And the scariest part was when Satan said that it was God's religion and will to create Evil and keeps blaming humans for being part of God's trickery of doing evil instead of good. Wow, it really distorts of how Christianity can be so hypocritical in their ways. I liked how they even portrayed Christian Crusade soldiers as contradictory of saying that killing heretics in the Name of God is for the capacity of goodness. A very huge ironic social commentary of what Christianity has become.

Lots of anime gore in this one. Even I admit my fave parts of it are the Levels of Hell itself. The gluttony and the violence hell parts are no worse than the lowest part of it where The Devil lingers in icy cold domain. And I don't recall Cerberus as a 3-headed faceless monster with huge mouths as its only body part for gobbling up sinners. :P Oh well.

This is even scarier than the last Fantasia part of Nightmare on Bald Mountain sequence.

Didn't know this is a remake of 1976 version. Anyway, fairly decent for a movie. Had a few moments of police brutality death punches over women.. Man, this was just sick. And lots of sex too with donkey punch style scenes. Damn.

The ONLY good Uwe Boll film aside from his butchered video games of BloodRayne. No, it's not a video game based movie despite the game also has the same title.

Main story: 20 something yr old guy lives with parents, goes on a killing spree cos of the overpopulation political global warming stuff and perceives humans as sucking up the resources of our planet.ANd not only that, he got sick and tired of living a boring surbuban life.

His solution to the problem: KILL and blow up EM ALL!!! After watching this, I'm sure some of you even considered this option in your life.

And to think the poster teaser looks like a logo cover of Counter-Strike game series. :p

Don't let the fairy tale title fool you.. This has no prince charming receiving the glass slipper. Let's just say the storyline involves a deformed little girl who died in a car fire accident and can we say the goriness is much like John Travolta's Face Off movie. Still, never have I cried so much at the ending of a horror movie. Very depressing as fuck and creepy shit.

Scary moment: 2 girls chiseling each other's faces smiling at each other saying, "I'M GONNA MAKE YOU A PRETTY FACE!" while unaware of being possessed by the deformed burned girl. FACE OFF INDEED.

Fairly decent good movie and I find it rare that it has main kidnappers who turned out to be closet gays and they made out with each other in one scene despite one of them is also the boyfriend of the alleged kidnapped Alice Creed.

Oh and there were lots of nude sex and handcuffed scenes where they try talking her out of being the ransom girl for money.

Some of the Matrix-ish scenes slow mo are unnecessary. Like when the black guy leaps on the plane's tail just to pull back to safety from falling off the building.. That was LOL. Some of the crowd laughed at that.

And after the Cast List credits roll, you'll see an extra ending with Jill Valentine. Although 3-D is unecessary but still, Milla + Ali Larter + zombies = PURE WIN.

I finally saw Inception. During the past few weeks I've been dying to see it already and check out what's all the hype about and now I'm so glad I relieved my curiosity.

I'm not a big fan of those massive, uninspired Hollywood productions because in most cases watching them makes me almost smell that it's all only about profit and, for example, I can proudly say that I still haven't watched Avatar and am not planning to. But! Inception was a very positive surprise for me because it actually had a good plot and a goddamn good subject to revolve around. The plot was so twisted and confusing that now I'm dying to watch it at least one more time to clear up a few things.

It's already a new favorite of mine and the idea, plot twists, special effects and cinematography were all enough to make up for the fact that Leonardo DiCaprio is one of my least liked actors and that there was a little bit of "noticeable acting" here and there, which I hate because actors' job is to fool you into believing that what you're seeing on the screen is genuine and, ironically, not acted out. As for the special effects, they were brilliantly done. This was the first movie featuring levitating scenes that weren't screwed up (sorry, Matrix. But I love you anyway) and the first that didn't make me think "Why hello, Green Screen!". Of course assuming that it was used. Another thing that made me fall for this movie were some of the dialogues, for example the part about not remembering how your dream started and that you always somehow start out in the middle of the story. That was one of my favorite parts and I was honestly shocked when I heard that because it's something you're so familiar with but always failed to realize yourself. I was sitting there in my seat with a deadpan face and thinking how come I never came across that information before, since I've had an intense period of fascination with dreams and similar experiences, like deja vu. This made me want to pick up where I last stopped digging and hopefully discover even more. So Inception also turned out to be a quite inspiring movie, which makes it even better for me.

If anyone asked me what this movie was about I think I'd say that it's simply a blend between The Matrix and Ubik, both of which are my favorites in their fields; The Matrix (though only the first part of the trilogy, since the sequels weren't as good and felt ridiculously forced for more money) being one of my favorite movies, while The Little Prince and Ubik are my two most loved books ever. Could it get any better than that? I love Inception!

Don't be silly, I really enjoyed your post! It's cool to see someone talk more at length about their thoughts on a film they've just seen, rather than simply name it. Having been similarly impressed by Inception when I saw it (which I believe I said in this thread), I agreed with a lot of what you said, and found it an interesting read.
I, too, liked the part about "not remembering how your dream started and that you always somehow start out in the middle of the story." It's one of those things that I think everybody knows and, in a way, is so obvious, you've never even thought about it before. I can't imagine anyone doesn't see that and go 'oh, yeah, that's true!'
I don't know very much about the process of dreaming, but this film certainly made me want to find out. Having studied/having an interest in Psychology, it quite fascinates me the idea of dreams being projections of the unconscious mind.
Interesting when viewed from a Freudian standpoint that Cobb's wife was repressed deep into his unconscious mind, and as such, he had no control at all on when/how she appeared. I found the scenes with Mal quite scary and tense - she had this dangerous, unpredictable edge to her, an obvious result of her being a product of Cobb's unconscious mind and the repressed guilt he had for having fucked with her mind.

I forgot to mention Mal! I agree, the way they portrayed a person's struggle with painful feelings and memories after a traumatic loss was really good. I just loved the idea of presenting those "painful memories/regrets", which all of us have, as an elevator taking you to each of those levels. Whoever came up with that metaphor is brilliant.

I thought the most brilliant metaphor in the film was using the train as an image of death and afterlife: "I'll tell you a riddle: you're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you, but you can't be sure. But it doesn't matter- why would it not matter where the train will take you?" There was something about the moment when Cotillard delivers those lines that really... I don't know, it was so fucking dead on. I've already seen the film 4 times, but I need to see that moment again so I can figure out what was going on to make it so powerful. My only disappointment is that I had hoped to see more... explicitly illustrated Jungian material, principles, etc. But it was still awesome, overall- if not just a bit action-y in the final act. And lastly the use of "Non, je ne regrette rien." Fuck. Considering Mal Cobb's casting, I really don't know what word to use to describe the decision to use that song in the film. Fucking awesome.

Also I like big Hollywood moneymaking productions. I think film is unique as an art form in that it is as much a commercial enterprise as an artistic one. "Inception" and "Avatar" were produced by separate studios, but for argument's sake- films like Avatar pay the production costs of films like Inception and all the more artistically adventurous fare that more "refined" tastes appreciate. Directors like Nolan also prove that big budget films don't have to be stupid to be accessible or profitable, and can still be intelligent and creative without being alienating to mainstream consumption. At the end of the day it doesn't matter how brilliant your movie is if nobody saw it, and if it made no money you'll surely never make another film again- worlds like the one Nolan gave us in Inception cost upwards of 150 million.

Anyway, the film that's impressed me the most since Inception this year has been "The Town." If Affleck hadn't already completely redeemed himself for his career prior to "Gone Baby Gone" he's certainly done it with this one. There's absolutely nothing particularly adventurous or groundbreaking about the movie, it's just superbly crafted and executed in every way- highly engaging and entertaining, an all around fantastic movie. What's also interesting is that it's- in my opinion, produced one- if not THE most arresting image I've seen at the movies this whole year: nuns with guns.

Oh yes, that was also fantastic. Powerful, I think, is the best word to describe that. And since you brought up that song, (which I'll admit that I have never heard before but thought it was almost magical as a song to "wake up" to; a very unique choice) I have to mention that I was stunned by the soundtrack in general. Without it, some of the scenes wouldn't be as engaging as they were. I scratched off most of my nail polish during the film. :)

Fair enough, but it doesn't change the fact that I simply don't enjoy watching such movies. But then, although I'm always going to be amazed by a movie, where the director and the crew managed to make wonders despite having a small budget - because that takes talent and a lot of creativity - it's obvious that when the same people are given a monstrous budget, there's no comparing. I hope that made sense. So money sadly* plays a big role (no pun intended!) in the creation of any art but, as you said, especially when it comes to movies.

*Sadly because this leads to situations where some artists, who could create something innovative or "out of this world", don't have the chance to do so without the money that it would take to turn their visions into reality.

I saw this trailer last night, and that image immediately jumped out at me. Looks like an interesting film, I'll probably go check it out some time.

I saw the trailer while waiting to see The Other Guys. I wasn't sure if it'd be any good, I've never been a fan of Will Ferrell, but some friends suggested we go and see it, so I thought what the hell. It was a funny film, and the opening sequence was hilarious. The Rock and Samuel Jackson were easily the funniest characters, so it's a shame they weren't in it so much. The rest of it was ok and had its moments, but I thought a lot of the humour was a bit cheap and obvious. Still, not too bad for a bit of light entertainment.

I really didn't like Mary Poppins as a child - Mary Poppins seemed always cross and mean (I didn't realise until much later that she's even scarier in the original books), most of the bits that weren't animated went over my head, and the whole thing was just too long (it seemed to take most of the day to watch it). Now that I'm older, I love the charming way they all talk to each other, and the songs are so much fun! I also love all the iconic images in it -Mary Poppins gliding down with her umbrella and carpet bag, the beautiful clothes she wears in the chalk-drawing, and the lovely relationship she has with Bert. The whole thing just begs to be built upon, it's wonderful for the imagination!

Also, I suspect Mary Poppins is from the Land of Oz - she does fly down (perhaps from over the rainbow...).

Didn't expect a sequel to this one minus Josh Hartnett. Yes, even the beginning had flashbacks of the 1st one and the ending as well.. And the ending and throughtout felt like Queen of the Damned and Underworld style.. Hell, the vampire queen Lilith has a bad-ass strong blood that when you pour over the dead burned out vamps, they fucking regenerate back to normal vamps.

The ending was just WTF? why the fuck did she do that? Fairly decent.. But I'm sure there won't be another one cos well, Twilight fucked it all up.

"Dark Days makes Twilightlook like nursery school."

Dude, everything makes Twilight look like nursery school. It's Vampires a la Mormon, what do you expect?

I can't wait until all this has died down and the world stops going vampire crazy. I still can't believe I was obsessed with vampires for about three years in high shcool, and everyone thought I was a psycho. And then, right when I get over them, everyone thinks vampires are the coolest thing since the colour pink. If only the timing hadn't been off, I could have been cool! ;_;


As for that HP trailer, that is actually the first trailer I've ever seen that has made me consider watching the films. It looks like it may have done a good job, instead of just being a watered-down version of the books.

^^ Nu-uh! Sirius Black is the sexiest man out of the whole series, with Remus Lupin coming a close second! They picked the perfect actors for the two of them, and what do they do? Give them BEARDS! Big ugly hideous FAT beards! I was mortified! That, and they made Sirius Black all insane, when the whole point of his character is that he's NOT insane, because he knows he's innocent, and everyone is freaked out by how UNinsane he is.

I don't remember much of the film, but I do remember I was utterly crushed by them ruining my favourite characters, and I swore never to waste another minute on any of the films again.

The Town... was surprisingly good. I was expecting another repeat of Point Break, but it was far from it. The nun mask is quite disturbing. The shoot outs were impressive. This might all be because my boyfriend is from Boston, but I don't buy into him. I enjoyed the movie. Watching Chicago now. It's been a while. I remember when this came out during the GAOG and thought...wow this is the burlesque jazz film that is perfect with this era. I love this film.

Let the Right One In. This touched me deeply, as I had a similar childhood to Oskar. I was bullied in a very similar manner..though not quite as subdued. My bullies were much mroe active and violent. I recognized myself in him so much. What my wife saw as psychotic behavior, I saw as a cry for help. But it was Eli that really blew me away. I don't think words can accurately convey my feelings towards her performance. It was almost as if I wished I could be 12 again to meet a girl like her. (yes I'm aware of the context of her character, but still).

If you have any true understanding and love for film, than you'll be swept away by this masterfully told story of love, hate, and innoncence lost.

Only complaint is that Steven Seagal appears weak as a villain... Why does he always have the same expression in every goddamn movie even when he's a hero?

Best parts: Mexican shootout with the low-rider diablo cars and even the ice cream man and the ambulance sexy bitch nurses with guns!!! Same goes with Lindsay Lohan killing her senatorial dad. The crucified priest plus Machete using the bad guy's intestines as a rope for jumping out windows. Hahaha.

4.5/5.

I wonder if there'll be a sequel based on the teaser ending credits: Machete will return in Machete Kills and Machete Kills again. Other than that, lame title false sequels. :p

P.S. For some odd reason, I really pity Lindsay Lohan that she's in jail right now. :/

To save his daughter, he urgently needs the tremendous amount of 60,000,000 won. To make this money, he gets involved in dangerous illegal gambling and barely saves his life by promising he will take care of body disposal for the gang. On his way to Gangwon-do where he intends to dump the bodies, he encounters a police van that had been in an accident, and ends up giving the police officer a ride.

Another video game franchise victim for cash shit on movies. I looved playing the game but this one's just waaayyy off. Mature and Vice looked more like a reject Nina/Anna Williams clones on Tekken. Yep, there's even a huuuuuuge nod to Dragonball Evolution about Orochi being the source of power for the fighters... Fucking hell.

I only watch this for Maggie Q. Mature and Vice are fucking stupid lesbos that need to be ass-kicked by Mai. Thankfully this is a low budget direct to video stuff.

And yes, the only costume that was totally spot on was Terry. The one with the red jacket and redcap although his role as CIA agent is just laughable.

Also, it had a few good dialogues coming from him saying, "THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS INTERDIMENSIONAL TOURNAMENT BULLSHIT!!!"

Talk about self-pwnage on a video game movie that's totally way off the storyline...

I'm sure some of you are familiar with this game arcade classic next to Street Fighter of course. God forbid, if they make a King of Fighters origin movies of MATURE AND VICE. I love those 2 in the game. Their fatalities are difficult on pc but playable nonetheless.

Lars and The Real Girl - it's shot right up to my top three favourite-films-ever list. It is a very sweet love story (not the "wacky love triangle" it's marketting campaign makes it out to be), not so much between Lars and a love-doll he believes is a real person, but between himself and the town's community, as they all pull together to go along with his delusion.

After seeing it with my dad, we also discussed that it's probably one of the only movies that portrays a mental illness as something that's not terrifying. Any other film portrayal of a mental illness is either some villain gone insane, or something like A Beautiful Mind. Here, mental illness (in Lars case, his delusion) is just something that the town comes to accept and adapt to, with no judgement or negativity.

It's a very delicate and sensative film, and to deal with a plot device like a love-doll without making it smutty is definitely a feat. Ryan Gosling puts on an unbelievable performance, and the filmography is amazing. Don't be put off by the DVD cover (it's the only thing I don't like about the film), borrow it and watch it.

I haven't heard anything from the media about this film, but I definitely don't see its focus to be on a 'wacky love triangle', but as you said, more about the relationship between Lars and the community, and also his personal strength. I thought it was interesting to see how his problems and delusion were represented in the doll, and the process of killing them both off as he was recovering.

I just watched this and I can't say I was too impressed. It's based on a novel that I haven't read, though going by the film alone I think the events that took place were very jagged and too spontaneous, not in the way they were delivered, but the scenes themselves. I think this might have been because a lot of the detail would've needed to be removed when turning it into a film, but then again I can't be too sure about that not having read the book. I don't think the acting was that convincing either, which didn't help the plot run any smoother.

I have fallen in love with this movie. Can't wait for the next one. The music in it kicked ass. Loved it! go check it out! I went into it with not much excitement but I really got into it. Some parts got really intense. And there was some actual acting which I think is quite rare for a modern horror. If anyone watched it and loved it the PM! Wonna talk about the spoilers :P

^ oh yeah, this is one of those movies that we watched as kids, it would always be on over the school summer holidays. I actually don't even own this on DVD but always watch it whenever it's on TV. I watched some of the other Tremor movies as well a few years ago but I can't even remember that much about them now, I'm going to have to buy the box set of them.

- Never again. What spoils what could be a good movie is Will Ferrell. Seriously I do not get the hype surrounding this guy - every film I have seen him in is unfunny.

Saw RED last night at the cinema (alone, because I'm a loser) - surprisingly awesome, although I think I was laughing more than anyone else in the cinema..

I got the Tremors box set, so I watched the first film today! Still good/bad etc.

I went to the cinema on Saturday and watched Paranormal Activity 2. It was ok, I thought it was slightly better than the first one, it had better moments in it, although it took it's damn time building it up. The first movie happens within the timeline of the second film, so be sure to watch the first film before you watch the second one.

Most the people in the cinema were laughing their asses off at the parts that were supposed to be scary... one part with the baby, it slides down the bed and up the side of it's crib, that got the most laughs.

So on the whole it was a bit of fail, like the first one... I would say it, or both films are worth watching once, but you will probably never want to watch them again. They aren't scary, they're crappy.

A nightmare on Elm Street


It actually was pretty good. I listened to it loud with my headphones and it made me jump loads. I also like the way they added more about Freddy and and how he came the way he is. Very good stab at a remake. 8/10

^Yes, I thought it was simply brilliant. And it's better not to believe what critics say in this kind of movies, I read a lot of them who said it was just a teenage-fighitng movie, with no plot, that had no script at all... and when I saw it I was asking myself if they had watched the same movie, because in my eyes it was great. Maybe the character of the girl was cheesy and the movie itself didn't require it, but as a manga adaptation I guess it would have been weird to just delete one of its characters. And damn, it has a plot, it is fantastically filmed and it's so goddamn funny to watch. Final battle is epic.

About IZO, I'll tell you when I see it, but I've read is kind of an exprimental movie. With lots of violence, of course ; )

Of course. I rarely read reviews of movies because I prefer to make my own mind up. It would be very easy for someone to dismiss Crows Zero as just another teenage gang type movie but there's a lot more to it than that. I agree that the girl character was slightly cheesy but nonetheless the plot was very good and it is so watchable. I think the Japanese do this type of movie very well. If it was filmed in the US or UK it could all become very cliched and yep, the final battle is awesome.

After seeing this, I even pretended that Shymalan's Airbender shit didn't happen.. I like it actually. None of the stupid CGI demon stuff that you see here.

I even liked how the devil's big reveal was also subtle among the 5 strangers who have their former sinful ways in the past. A perfect setting of how the devil can infiltrate our world through elevators and play mindfuckery games among the 5 victims.

Kinda like Final Destination meets Drag Me To Hell. 4/5.

I remember a professor describe it as: trying to be with an ex after a breakup.

That made me very uncomfortable that I never bother to check it out. Do you have netflix? I just saw it on there, too bad they don't have it available for streaming. I queued it up anyway, when I get the dvd in the mail in a week or two, us three shall chime in!

Yeah it was good too. But after part 2, 3 and 4 are now a cash cow shit movies. Despite the 3rd one was directed by Anthony Perkins.

My local cable is having a horror marathon and this came up yesterday. Man, my childhood phobia of empty staircases at night still give me hibby jibbies aside from the static signal of the old TV.

My fucking god... This is the ultimate nightmare for all you claustrophobics out there. Throughout the movie, you'll spend most of the time trapped in a box with a guy who says some stupid Iraqis buried him alive 6 feet under the desert. The only thing you can view the outside world is his cellphone video of some woman who got shot in the head by a faceless kidnapper. That's it. And most of the time, he still keeps contacting FBI agents, 911 calls, etc family friends.. Too depressing to listen to that.

What could have been Saw... Hence, the voice on the phone besides his employers and family contacting him, is also a kidnapper who wants money as ransom exchange for his life. I won't spoil the ending for you but it's unforgivably cruel to watch...

His only weapons inside the box: knife, glow sticks, flashlight, and a cellphone...

His enemies inside the wooden coffin: 1 black venomous snake later in the movie it somehow entered a small through it. Fucking creepy..

5/5... I even cried for his character to be dugout by the U.S. soldiers.. It just made me burst into tears after what happened.. Terrible I tell you..

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 1974

Was a pretty good movie. There was one moment in the forest with the girl and the guy in the wheel chair that made me jump a lot.
Not as gorey as the remake I saw and the sequel to the remake. But I thought the atmosphere was a lot creepier and I can see why it's a cult classic.
I don't think i'll waste time watching the old school sequels though. They look pretty naff lol.

Really?? Since the film isn't American, I thought it'd be out in Europe already. I saw it at one of those fancy theaters that deal with foreign and indie films, but I doubt they have the leverage to get a movie before you guys. Hmmmmm....

Watched Toy Story blu ray today. Good film. Graphics are good for blu ray.
Also watched a bootlegged version of the new Saw film. Glad I saw it for free. The whole film could have been wrapped up in 30 minutes. The last twist was great for the finale. If there is a continuation to this series, I will be pissed. The film was alright. Think I am just pissed at the fifth film, which sucked big time. Pt. 6 brought back some light, but I found the plot to the new one was pointless except the beginning and end. Love the series, but they should have stopped after the fourth one.

the 1st and 2nd half to the ending was the only screentime for the alien squid octopuses glowy Cloverfield style effects were present. Most of the boring halves spent through 2 characters doing road trip talking. Fairly decent but not that good..

Although I like how they link the alien invasion to 2 americans stranded in mexico and crossing the border just to get home.. Ironic social commentary on immigration.

So, the ending was that they're "REAL" vampires. Not like the vamps that melt in the sun or sparkle. Cos I read somewhere in the wiki that says there's a REAL disease called clinical vampirism or people who have this bloodlust taste for human blood. They never eat flesh. At least, this one just screams a faint echo of True Blood.

Sad ending. :(

Not too bad. I liked the first one and thought the scares in this one were more effective and a bit less expected. Only bit I hated was the backstory and the part with the baby.

The demon is chasing the family to get to the baby due to some deal an ancestor made with it for wealth. The deal stated that the demon would receive the first born son in the family line. Not a single boy had been born in that family since 1930. I just found this a little lame, yet classic storytelling. The bit with the baby I hated was when it started floating in its crib...was just silly and not scary.
