F*** that End of Watch was a good movie.

Watched the latest Resident Evil movie the other day. If you like RE at all, SKIP THIS ONE and forget about the whole series ever happened. WORST RE EVER.

Looper was pretty good tho. Def worth the watch

the movie does not make sense in many ways, but julian assange kills judi dench and they replace her with voldemort, Q is now played by mark zuckerberg, and moneypenny is black

Disliked End of Watch. Too much drama, not enough police bad assery. And i guessed the ending which is rare for me. Knew they would tug @ the heart strings. Training Day was tonnes better, more action, less drama.

And Magic Mike. WTF rev?

Have a look at avatar - watched it on the new 70 sharp my mate picked up - its worth watching again to revel in it's 3d beauty on a new screen weather you like the movie or not.

Lord of the rings trilogy on blueray would be pretty epic too - would also consume a large portion of your weekend

Watched Dark Knight Rises on blu-ray. Such a good movie but my god Matthew Modine's character is a waste of time and every scene he is in he just seems to make the scene worse. How much better would have the first Batman scene been if he wasn't in the car with Blake saying his dumb "I'm gonna get the Batman!" lines? Plus every other thing he does is f*****g stupid. He really didn't need to be in the movie at all. Maybe they just wanted some sort of joker reference in the movie no matter how vague it was.

well played. I find promethius to be a great sci-fi flick, only in hindsight. At the time, it was just another spacey movie whilst i kept waiting for any aliens references.
I thoroughly enjoyed end of watch.
And The world is never enough was on telly the other night. I only like watching bond movies to try and guess when bond is going to say the name of the movie. this one was probably the most easiest.

Just watched The Sapphires. It's a good Australian movie that doesn't suck like most of them. For once someone actually made a movie that isn't depressing as f***. Also, this is quite a tear-jerker so you might need some tissues handy. And the music is actually nice as well. I was expecting to skip past the singing but I was pleasantly surprised.

Well done everybody!

Best review of TED ever, could not agree any more.

Last movie I watched was tonight and was the Bourne Legacy. I have to agree with ravn0s and that the first ~30mins were a bit slow but then most of the other Bourne movies were the same. Picked up towards the end an the obligatory massive action packed chase scene was pretty good.

Most memorable bond moments aren't the action scenes. Its the conspiracies, characters and interesting places.

Same, but in retrospect it's coz it seemed to want NOTHING to do with the other two [Daniel Craig as Bond] movies.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but the plot from 'Casino Royale' directly fed into the plot from 'Quantum of Solace' and I don't for the life of me, recall the QoS plot wrapping up.

Then again, DC is contracted for another Bond flick.

The more I think about it, I liked the 'low-key' approach of Skyfall. More about Bond (y'know, being flawed etc etc), and less about the 'conspiracy of the week'.

I assumed it didn't follow on because Quantum of Solace was s*** and they wanted to forget it ever happened.

I'm a bit suprised tbh, because when Skyfall came out and there was a thread about it, it was filled almost entirely with praise, now it seems like everyone didn't like it. I loved it personally, dunno if I agree with the "best Bond movie ever" hyperbole but its certainly up there as one of my favourites.

Skyfall had the best bad guy I have seen in a very long time. He made the movie.

Tucker and Dale vs Evil: This movie is hilarious. It's a parody on the hillbilly serial killer hunting down teenage kids.

Cabin in the Woods: This movie is hard to describe but think SCP (the website) combined with teenage kids in a creepy house. It's fun to watch both sides try and not screw up.

I found Dredd to be an awesome movie extremely undeserving of the s***** box office pull it got. I can only put it down to the horrid Dredd movie from the 90s with Stallone which left a bad taste in people's mouths. Well worth watching.

Something else I found amazing was the japanese movie Rurouni Kenshin. Never seen any of the anime or manga behind it so I went in knowing nothing and still throughly enjoyed it. The speed some of the fights ended up going was pretty nuts too. Good amount of blood in it where it counted. Great action movie so if you can see it, I highly recommend it.

Yeah vantage point was good. Each new viewpoint adds extra info til the twist is revealed.

I also really enjoyed Triangle. Confusing as f*** even after i spent time online trying to understand all the plot twists n s***.

Cabin in the woods was good. Didnt like the whole underpinning idea as to why horror movie scenarios were required.

Saw the new total recall. Really liked some of the tech and the new twist on the movie while keeping some features of the original. I loled when i saw the s***house rating it got on IMDB. I really enjoyed it.

Saw inglorious basterds for the 2nd time ever a week or so ago. Im not a fan of heavy dialogue movies but goddam that was good. Such great suspense.

Pitch Perfect was a fantastic film. I've gone back and rewatched some scenes. I love that song "No Diggity", I'd just been listening to it on YouTube before I watched that movie. What are the odds, in 20 years I hadn't heard that song!
Maybe I should start watching Glee.

I loved the transport system in Total Recall that went through the earths core, and how it did the gravity switch halfway and everything flipped around. I don't have how implausible it is, that just resonated with me as really freaking cool. Also liked the phone thats embedded in your hand and you put your hand on any pane of glass to make it the screen. The movie was pretty cool I thought, had plenty of good action too.

Mass Effect Paragon lost wasn't bad, just tells the tale of Vega from ME3, it's only 1.5 hours I've wasted more time doing other s***.

The Watch wasn't a bad movie a few laughs here and there.

Going to see 'This is 40' this weekend looks hilarious!

Hotel Transylvania was really good but it sorta died near the end. The animation was top notch and I reckon it would look really nice in 3D. Still, I think Tangled is the best animated movie to come out in the last few years. That movie kicks some serious ass.

Just saw Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter. 8/10 IMO for mindless, bloody violence. Wish i had seen it 3D as the visuals were great and there were plenty of scenes i think would have looked good 3D. Also nice bloody slow mos.

Also watched Chernobyl Diaries. 6/10. Finally a 'mocumentary' style horror where its not filmed POV style. The whole time i watched it i was thinking of Stalker and how the movie would have been tonnes better if they added little f***ed up creatures n s***. Has inspired me to replay the series.

yer, tangled is awesome rev (its even got mandy in it!).

hard to go past toy story 3 though, or even nemo.

madagascar seems to be giving them both a run for their money.

ive bought the 3d version of hotel transylvania, and will check it out today. also got 3d how to train your dragon, because its supposed to be pretty good as well.

So here is a few I've enjoyed lately!

The Crazies (Viral outbreak semi horror - Very Decent)
ill Manors (Brit Street Scum flick - Written / directed / Music by Plan B. Awesome)
John Carter (Loved it, the reviews didn’t do it justice!)
Cabin in the woods (not bad, but not exceptional however good concept.. I too want to see a merman)
Real Steel (Thought I’d throw this on as a no brainer, and loved the heck out of it!)
Warrior (Decent MMA flick, but I found it a bit too American for my liking!)

Last few days has been awesome moofie watching weather.

Flight

Werth it just to see the plane crash at the beginning but Denzel Washington was damn awesome in this. The only thing that was dumb was the cheesy ending.

Reel Evil

Wasn't too bad. Was very similar to Grave Encounters although nowhere as good. The main chicky babe is a hottie though.

The Collection

Sequel to the awesome The Collector, I was a little bit disappointed with this. It still has heaps of cool traps but I think it was ruined by having too many people in the movie and even though it's just a "movie" it didn't feel believable. I guess since the first one was so unique at the time it's hard to make a sequel feel different but still have all the cool stuff that made the first one so good. Still werth watching anyway just for the traps and gore.

Awesome CGI flight sequence at the start though, agreed. Unfortunately the rest of the flick just fizzles & yeah, you can see the cheese coming a mile away. Not enough John Goodman scenes as well.

Yeah, that Seven Psychopaths was really average hey. It started alright but then became really boring when they got to the desert. I've also got The Liability ready to go as well. The story sounds like it might be really cool. Also have Sinister waiting but I've been reading mixed things about it. I didn't like Paranormal Activity but I did like Insidious and it's done by those guys. I'll watch it at nite for better effect.

I too watched Flight on the weekend - Washington's great, though they do a ton of character set-up in about the first three to five minutes.

Also watched Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome (if that's considered a movie), seemed very B-grade with the actors and overall story/plot.

The Paperboy - John Cusack is awesome. Deserves better than the 5.8/10 it is currently getting even with Nicole Kidman.

Video Game Highschool I expected this to be terribly lame but it was very funny. I mean it is still lame, but they capture gaming so well and there's plenty of laughs. It's really well done, and terribly lame.

end of watch was entertaining and had some really excellent camera work in parts. the opening scene had me thinking I was in for something special.

it's let down by some pretty terrible dialoague and simply the most awfully stereotypical and one dimensional bad guys ever. pretty much every line they deliver is utterly cringe worthy. SPOILER Spoiler:
the end scene in the alley where they appear through the smoke, say something ridiuclous and then light them up.. awful.


the two leads do a good job though and it's worth a watch for sure. disappointing though.

Forrest Gump was on telly the other night. Found it hard to turn it off. really well written story and amazing everything.
10/10

Django Unchained.
I did find the violence a bit much to stomach sometimes (especially when the retribution happens a little too later on imo)
and would of been fantastic if Will Smith played Django as Tarantino originally desired.
Foxx' soft spoken dialogue didnt cut the mustard imo. Classic example : 'i like the way you die' should of been an epic line spat venomously, not kinda smartass c***y.
Interesting that the characters of Django and his wife were originally conceived to be the great great grandparents of Shaft.
Shultz is amazing, as is Sam Jackson (didnt even recognise him at first). Film felt like it did drag a bit but would highly recommend it to anyone who
a) likes tarantinoism
b) needs a reality check regarding slavery in the south
c) loves a good yarn told well

i thought the violence during the retribution was cartoonish. the only violence that made me uncomfortable was the mandingo fight and 'the dogs'. both of which contained very little graphic violence. it was the scenario that was truly disturbing.

Yeah mine was a OG Cab III. BB doco is def worth a watch if only for Rodney Mullen's rather eccentric manner. His story about his Dad's ultimatum occurred simultaneously as I got a bit of dust in my eye.

If you're interested in the 'death of vert' era I would also recommend Stoked: The rise and Fall of Gator. Tragic story of too much too soon and the way 'instant fame' followed by sudden collapse can lead to disastrous consequences.

In other news I watched Django Unchained the other day and it was a bit patchy for mine. Some bits were great but it felt soft and predictable in others.

Spoiler:
The time jump with the KKK style guys was a weak and isolated grab at the sort of innovative way the old Tarantino played with temporality eg Pulp Fiction. Considering this technique isn't used elsewhere it feels really tacked on rather than a clever device. And the pawing horse? Seriously? Lame as f***. Violence was ho hum; epic blood spray but no sustained tension or empathy generated. Broomehilda who? Who cares more like it. And Old Fritzy suddenly deciding to sacrifice his life after cleverly orchestrating previous situations was against type and frankly a bit of a letdown. The dinner scene was ok, the KKK hood discussion was a good bit of comic relief but it did feel to me a bit out of place. Sam Jackson was the one thing that was reminiscent of the classic Tarantino, but he got dispatched in a very unsatisfying way... left to explode? No. All in all some good scenes (killing the plowing farmer, Fritzy saving Django at the start, Leo was great and the dinner scene was well done, but overall a bit disappointing. Definitely more Jackie Brown than Reservoir Dogs. 5/10. Ok make it 6.

No it wasn't. Compared to the ear cutting scene in Reservoir Dogs (as far as tension and "making you squirm" it was...well nothing.

IMO when he made Django, Tarantino made a movie that felt like a lesser filmmaker around the time he was peaking i.e. Pulp Fiction, trying to copy his style and make a Tarantinoesque movie, but ending up with a diluted not-quite version.

there's no difference between liking bad films 'ironically' and having terrible taste in movies. the point he was trying to make was that the film is dog s***. if you like dog s***, cool, but don't recommend it. the people who love eating dog s*** because they are a s*** eating machine know that they love to eat s***, so they preemptively eat s*** and don't need recommendations.

Ruby Sparks
A novelist struggling with writer's block finds romance in a most unusual way: by creating a female character he thinks will love him, then willing her into existence.

If you like stuff like Little Miss Sunshine and Stranger Than Fiction you'll prolly get into this. The main character sorta sucks but everyone else was awesome.

Loads of cool musicians/producers/engineers interviewed, and an excuse for Dave to record with them for an album i assume is coming out soon. The last guy came out of the blue to, pretty odd seeing what is essentially Nirvana playing with one of the most famous musicians in the world.
