THE MOVIE TOPIC TO END ALL OTHER MOVIE TOPICS

Post by NOT MONGO on Tue May 31, 2011 5:59 pm

The Hangover II was alright, actually fell asleep through some parts. script didnt seem refined maybe? like they wrote one draft and dropped in a few ideas and gave it to todd philips and said "lets go to bangkok." they set typical dumb/crude jokes around general things people know about "thigh-land."

they took a formula that worked in the first movie and used it for this sequel. this can be a good thing and a bad thing. personally, i dont mind it THAT bad. it follows a proven formula, however, it sticks to it too goddamn close. it needed some balls to branch out, even just a little bit.

sorry i suck writing right now, im a little buzzed. not surprised it raked in so much cash memorial day weekend, but i have a feeling its going to drop off big time the coming weeks.

one last thing- there was one scene that had everyone dying in the theater. it was really funny and shocking but since its Thailand, you knew it was going to come at some point.

My friend called it CTRL+C meets CTRL+V. Which is true. They took the exact same formula and wrote in new jokes. Some of the same. I enjoyed it, though. I was laughing fairly nonstop towards the end. The first was better but it was exactly what you'd expect of a sequel that doesn't stray.

Personally, I think they were as general with Las Vegas as they were with Thailand. Just general perceptions people have about the place. Not that I know much about Thailand tbh.

This should just be your signature.

I think the movie looks terrible and I almost want to see it for how bad it probably is.
I enjoyed the first one (not as much as HTTM which I've apparently been confusing it for) but not enough to want to watch a sequel. Actually, I don't think I want to see Galifianakis in anything for a while.
It might be okay.

Anyone seen that Bridesmaids movie? That looks slightly worse.


Oh. Since we're ending movie topics and all, has anyone seen the trailer for the new Tom Hanks/Julia Roberts movie? OMFG hahaha

It was pretty much the exact same movie as the original just in a different location and it had a few references to the first. It was exactly what I expected so I wasn't disappointed. It was still pretty funny despite getting very boring once you realize you are watching the same movie for a second time.

If a shitty movie was what I expected and a shitty movie what I got I might still be disappointed because I went to see a shitty movie.

There was an owl in my apt complex on my way to work. It just kind of stared at me while walking by. It was a pleasant change of pace from the pigeons normally in the spot I was walking.

I had 0 interest in seeing Hangover Part II and that was before I heard it was embarrassingly bad from a few friends. I did see Source Code and Hanna on back to back nights last week. The first I thought was pretty good despite being a bit anti-climatic. The second I watched while pretty buzzed at a dollar theater and had missed the first ten minutes of it, but I still enjoyed it.

Also, I'm pretty psyched about this:

I know, it's another remake (or adaptation depending on how you look at it), but it's Fincher. AND Reznor/Ross.

i just recently watched:

blue valentine- ryan gosling is almost like a chameleon, almost. cant wait to see him in Refn's Drive (peep any footage/trailer you can find- it got great reviews from cannes). michelle williams proves shes a great actress and has come a long way from dawsons creek and halloween h: 20. kind of a melodramatic movie. we see williams' boobies too. id rate them a 6.5/10. the movie: about them same maybe a 7.

unstoppable- forgettable movie. anyone could have played the main cast because there is very little of them. denzel and chris pine have nothing to do here.

the next three days- pretty decent russel crowe movie. i thought it would kinda be like the fugitive where he tries to prove innocence (in this movie- his wife's) but instead he plans on breaking her out of prison. elizabeth banks looks terrible as a blond at the beginning. this was a pretty decent implausible movie. id recommend it as a rental. crowe was pissed lionsgate didnt market the movie but i guess they had no money to advertise. oh paul haggis wrote and directed, so it has pieces of his previous movies thrown into this one..

I know I've mentioned it before but I really just want to see Cowboys and Aliens. The year seems to be moving extremely slowly until it comes out. Even if it's a great film I'm not entirely sure why I'm looking forward to it so gd much.



I hope that owl did eat the pigeons. They were flying around the complex presumably running like hell from the Owl which at that point was just chilling.

Netflix streaming sucks dick. I subscribed so I'd have something to watch at work and I was amazed at how shitty the selection of movies was.

Re: THE MOVIE TOPIC TO END ALL OTHER MOVIE TOPICS

Post by winterborne1 on Sun Jun 05, 2011 5:50 pm

I've seen some of the movies mentioned in this topic. Here are my uninvited thoughts:

Hated The Hangover Part 2. It was a duplicate copy of the original, with only slight detail differences like Ed Helms having a tattoo instead of a missing tooth, taking care of a monkey instead of a baby, finding the missing dude in an elevator instead of on a roof, and even going as far as locking up Mr. Chow in a freezer as opposed to a trunk. It wasn't nearly as funny as the original, and Zach G's character has been exaggerated to the point where it isn't believable anymore. The father of the bride's change of heart was very unconvincing. I was bored throughout this movie but I had a few laughs. Guilty laughs, but laughs nonetheless. 3/10

Bridesmaids was very funny, albeit very depressing at some parts. The movie seemed to go hot and cold a lot, but that's typical of Judd Apatow comedies. Kristen Wiig can definitely carry a comedic movie by herself. She's one of the rare women who can do that and still get a male audience. 7/10

I absolutely loved Blue Valentine. Probably my favorite movie mentioned in this topic. I started the movie was a bias against Ryan Gosling. I had him pegged as a Silver Lake boy toy whose movies are intended as a compliment to his pretty face (some of us Los Feliz folk naturally hate people from Silver Lake. It's like a hipster gang war). After seeing this movie, I consider him one of my favorite actors. Michelle Williams deserves a ton of credit too. The pain that the two characters felt was contagious. Every little detail, such as the daughter quietly saying "I love him!" at the end had a way of pulling my heart strings. I thought this movie was brilliant, and I now own this movie. 10/10

Hanna was good. Loved the music. Great acting. Wish I could say more but I saw this movie really early and I was blazed as hell when I saw it. 7/10

X-Men: First Class. Loved this movie all the way through. My second favorite comic book movie behind The Dark Knight. X-Men had exactly the right balance of darkness and quirkiness that it needed. This movie was more real than fantastical, and the franchise desperately needed that. I'm about to see this movie again in 8 minutes. 9.5/10

Just got back from seeing X-Men again. Bumping my score down to 8.5 because of some awful camera work, a few terrible lines of dialogue, and Matthew Vaughn didn't do a great job of getting the best performances out of the lesser cast members. Michael Fassbender is definitely an actor I'll be keeping an eye out for though. Germans just do it right.

I just saw Bridesmaids. It was funny. Not hysterical though. The pacing was pretty poor. There were very long stretches in the movie without laughs. Ever since I saw I Love You, Man I have been waiting for the female version of the bromance movie. This was it. It was well done overall. Maybe I women will find this a little funnier. The two girls I saw this with loved it.

Saw tree of life.. it was well made.. if there is a line connecting the birth of the universe space/time and the family portion of the movie, it cant really be seen.. i get it but its not underlined.. the family parts were great and i found myself smiling. The dinosaur part was kinda lulzy.. im sure this would be amazing on imax but i saw it on a small screen in kendall square..

fantastic movie... scale of 1-11 its an 8-9.. its not ashamed that the kids are the selling point.. good crowd movie i imagine, the alien is there throughout the movie but its a little underdeveloped..i wish there was more they did with it.. could have explained more but its really the kids' movie. see it on imax if you can, sound is great..

I was re-watching Predators (The Robert Rodriguez reboot which i happened to like) on TV and realized that I've taken a grappling seminar taught by the Russian actor in that film. He put me in a headlock. Sweet.

I could definitely see it was well made and the visuals were beautiful, but it didn't do anything for me.
The family scenes were the most entertaining for me, but even then I didn't feel that story was particularly new.
It was very stream of consciousness-ny and I didn't care much for it.

We've had some of the worst comic book movies this year.

Thor was pathetic.
Gantz looked like they never bothered to hire anyone to do lighting.
I still don't understand how Priest ever got money based on that script.
X Men First Class was a crime against movies.
And After watching Green Lantern last night I feel like I need to just stop going to comic book movies because obviously the studios aren't taking any of these remotely seriously.

With that said Troll Hunter and Win Win were both fantastic movies.

And I'm going to see Tree of Life and Midnight in Paris this week.

Oh good! Troll Hunter is apparently a very limited release, but one of the theatres here is playing it for a bit.
I hope it isn't too Blair Witchy because that movie sucked serious balls.

Midnight in Paris looked like ass in the trailer, but I'm reading there's an element hardly at all alluded to in the trailer that's making me very curious. If it didn't star Owen Wilson I may have already seen it.

It's kind of Blair Witchy in the sense that's is a fake documentary with shaky cam, but it's actually awesome and it doesn't drag or anything. Amazon was streaming it for $10 on demand. That's where I watched it.

The shaky cam and forced bad cam quality buggers me. Like that Paranormal Activity movie. okay, I might hate it, but I'd like to give it a shot.
That's great that it's streaming! I like that the same was done with Hobo With a Shotgun.
If we end up watching it'll be at the theatre a few blocks away since get in for free. Otherwise I might not try.

I've ranted about that movie so many times, but I'll keep it to a few bullet points.

They went out and got the talent for this movie. Magneto, Prof X, and Sebastian Shaw were incredible at times, despite the failings of the script.

Unfortunately, the script was corny. And even their acting chops couldn't fix that.

Despite making the movie a time period piece, it never really felt like a time period piece at all.

January Jones totally mailed in her role. She was atrocious as Emma Frost and probably the worst cast among a whole gang of bad casting.

Every single X-kid was terrible. Besides Shaw, all the villains were undeveloped and had no personality or motive.

The film spent all this time pumping up the issues between Mystique and Beast, only for her to peace out in the end. There was no resolution there.

When Beast turned into actual Beast he looked like a kid Cosplaying for Comic Con.

The actress who played Mystique was also horrible although she made up for it by at least sticking her ass out from time to time.

But yeah, my entire opinion can be summed up with the fact that the movie was corny, yet tried to take itself seriously. There was a ton of groan worthy dialogue (not as much as green lantern, but green lantern didn't take itself nearly as seriously)

I've been broke, so I finally just saw Hangover II, and I have the same feelings/review of the movie as everyone else. It was just a repeat of #1. But a few good laughs. Not as much as the first film.

I'm very excited to see Super 8, hopefully this week.

And I really can't wait for Cowboys and Aliens either.

My girlfriend saw Bridesmaids with her mom. They liked it. They thought it was like Hangover, but for women. I'm honestly not sure, I don't ever plan on seeing that movie.

Bridesmaids is much, much funnier than Hangover 2. Yes, it's kinda like a chick bromance, but in the same way that girls can enjoy actual bromances, guys can enjoy Bridesmaids.

Super 8 was super great, and I give it a super 8/10. (see what I did there?) But I can't help but chuckle at the notion that since JJ Abrams directed it and Steven Spielberg produced it, the movie turned out to be a hybrid cross between E.T. and Cloverfield. Still, they nailed my childhood.

Still trying to find the will to get out of the house and see Tree of Life. I have a free movie ticket, I'm just afraid of leaving the house now.

I'm going to avoid seeing anything with "shaky cam" in the movie theatres for the rest of my life. Cloverfield made me puke and I told myself, "Never again." So I might watch Trollhunter on a miniature screen like my laptop. It's been available on Netflix even though it hadn't come out in theatres (in the U.S.) yet.

Just like your dad did. OOOOOOOHHH!!


I actually enjoyed Trollhunter. The pacing toward the end was meh but it was very entertaining. I didn't care too much that it was "shaky cam", surprisingly. Where the footage ended was just bad bad bad and the intro/outro wordy-thing was too stupid.
I didn't care for any of the characters except the hunter dude and the muslim chick. Everyone else was either annoying or "oh yeah, there's a second dude".
Forgettable, oh yeah but it wasn't necessarily a bad movie.
