Title: Post ah movie thread
Post by: triniairman on March 03, 2008, 12:03:36 AM
''The Bank Job" (2008)
One of the bad men in this movie plays as a Trinidadian gangster, in a part of the movie he said that he will go back to Trinidad to liberate his brothers and sisters from the enslavement of the British colonist*. The man sound like he is a Jamaican and the Trinidad police in the ending looked like they from Jamaica or Africa, what ah rip off, it made our police look like some African militants. This movie is not yet in the theatre. Starring Jason Statham, the guy from the movie ''Crank'' and ''Warlord''. The first minute or two will look kinda shaky ;D other than that it's watchable. ENJOY!

1970s murder in Trinidad makes British movie plot

Monday, March 3rd 2008

(http://www.trinidadexpress.com/shared/images/2008/03/03/n11.jpg)   

executed: Abdul Malik

A ghastly murder in Trinidad that involved a British socialite and a self-anointed Black Power leader of the 1970s, among the main characters, is the backdrop of a new movie that opened in Britain at the weekend.

It stars Jason Statham, popular from his Transporter movies, and is about the real-life unsolved heist at a bank in London in 1971.

The film is titled Bank Job.

The heist is linked to the murder of former socialite Gale Benson, the daughter of British Member of Parliament Lord Leonard Plugge.

Abdul Malik, who anointed himself leader of the British Black Power movement in the 1970s before he was hanged for murder in Trinidad, is being depicted.

And the man who called himself Michael X will also have a fourth book published about his life this year.

The book is titled A Life in Black and White.

Malik, whose given name was Michael De Freitas, is portrayed as a man who captured sexually compromising photographs of Princess Margaret which he stores in a vault at the bank.

He was arrested and convicted under the Race Relations Act and returned to Trinidad in January 1971 to avoid being arrested for extortion.He started an agricultural commune in Arima.

It was there that police found two buried bodies, Joseph Skerritt, a member of Malick's group and Benson in 1972. She was buried alive.

In the movie Benson is portrayed as a British agent who was killed because of her investigations into the photographs of the Princess.

Malik was hanged in 1975 despite an international effort to stop the execution.

Yes, John and Yoko came to TT and spend time in Arima at Malik's place. During that time there use to have the National Arts and craft show in the old market. All kind of local things on display. Lots of creative stuff. Malik brought them downtown and if I remembered correctly John did buy a locally made guitar. Guardian or Express should have that in their archives.

Another GREAT movie was a classic but relatively unknown 1955 gem titled Night of the Hunter. Very much an American styled Hitchcock type of film.

Watched it two nights ago...had a lot of potential but ultimately it fails miserably.  A poor approximation of the Charles Bronson serial, Death Wish. 

The movie starts fantastically and picks up a good head of steam before falling midway into the morass of mediocrity that similarly envelops other movies in the vigilante genre.  The plot takes several eye-rolling twists and before long one finds oneself sitting there waiting for the credits to roll already.

Tyson opens up about wild life in new documentaryUpdated: May 18, 2008, 12:41 AM EST 87 comments add this RSS blog email print CANNES, France (AP) - Mike Tyson considers it a miracle that he lived to tell his tale. And he's telling it — in graphic detail — in a new documentary at the Cannes Film Festival.
"I lived a wild and extreme life," the former heavyweight champion told reporters Saturday. "I used drugs. I had altercations with dangerous people. I slept with guys' wives that wanted to kill me. I'm just happy to be here, you know. It's just a miracle."

The 41-year-old former boxer got a prolonged ovation at the Cannes screening for "Tyson," directed by his old friend James Toback ("Fingers").

In the movie, which blends old video footage and TV interviews, Tyson talks about getting beaten up and stolen from when he was an overweight kid. He chokes up when reminiscing about his late trainer, Cus D'Amato, who transformed the troubled teenager into a world-class champion.

Tyson spares no details in describing his sex life, and covers his career's low points, like biting Evander Holyfield's ear in 1997. He admits to many, many bad decisions.

But on one issue, he still refuses to take responsibility. He insists he is innocent of the 1991 rape of an 18-year-old beauty queen for which he served three years in prison.

"I've been abusive to women before in my life," he acknowledged. But in this case, "I thought (the conviction) was wrong, I thought it was unfair."

Toback, who has known Tyson for 23 years and gave him small parts in "Black and White" and "When Will I Be Loved," said he talked to Tyson in a soothing, hypnotic voice to get him to open up for the film.

Bake what do you use?

Blockbuster... in addition to all the benefits offered by Netflix there's the added incentive of instead of dropping the movie in the mail when you're done, you take it into the Blockbuster store, where they immediately catalog it as being 'returned' (meaning they can ship another movie quicker instead of waiting for the movie to reach the warehouse), and plus you get a free rental from the store for each returned movie.

The plan I have caps the free in-store rentals at 5 movies per month....on top of the three out at a time by mail, but I believe the higher-tiered plans offer unlimited in-store rentals.

I stopped using Netflix about 4 yrs ago...too much BS with delays in mailing.  They eventually got sued in a class-action suit and settled (the claim being that they artificially limited the number of movies one could watch per month by slowing down the turn-around times by mail).  Now magically they've resolved the issue...yeah right  ::)

One advantage I've seen with Netflix is that their library (somewhat surprisingly) appears to be more extensive than Blockbuster's...every so often I'll punch up a movie and Blockbuster won't have it among the offered listings.  Don't think I ever really encountered that with Netflix.

Post by: pass(10trini) on May 29, 2008, 10:12:50 AM
Or hor.

I thought of Blockbuster but ppl online survey say Blockbuster take too long to return the movies. I use to rent from Blockbuster at one time but never like the idea of going to the store and look for a movie, too time consuming. When I think of Blockbuster I think stoneage. Netflix seems to have a faster turn around now as I get movies in 3 days max . The trick for a two day turn around is to return the movie on the last batch collection for the post office(Return on Monday night-new movie by Wednesday) if you want to get it back in 2 days. I on the three movie scheme so as I return one I still have two more to look at. I guess is whatever works for you though.

Blockbuster's turn around is faster...for the simle reason that you don't have to wait for the Post Office to return the movie to their warehouse before they check it back in, and turn around and mail out your movie.  As I said in the last post, once you turn it into the store they check it in at the end of the night, next day the warehouse mails out.  I find it to be a two-day process or less...case in point, dropped two movies in the mail slot at the store yesterday (already get mih 5 free rentals for the month, so no need going into the store), this morning I had two new movies in my mailbox arready.  So in this case I checked it in before the end of the day, giving them time to send one out to me the same day before the last mail pick up on their end.  Having been with both I prefer Blockbuster, but yeah...is kinda whatever works.

What!!  That sound real good. You just hand in at the store and they send out the next before receiving it in the warehouse. :o That sounding even better than Netflix. I will have to see if I could get a free month subcription with Blockbuster.

Yuh miss whey ah post dat de first time or what? lol...


yeah man, I doh post nutten back no more.  Which is why I doh understand why people does still fack with Netflix... two benefits to taking the movie to the Blockbuster store (in case yuh miss it  :D )  Not only do they scan it at the end of the day and it's "checked in" to the warehouse (yes, before warehouse actually gets it in hand) and they immediately get your next shipment ready...but like ah say, yuh pick up ah free in-store movie fuh bringing in de envelope.  My plan is yuh get five free in-store rentals per month, but the higher tiers might still offer unlimited.

...and yeah, blockbuster does offer free one-month trials.

I eat ah chain up and end up watching "The Other Boleyn Girl" last week... flick was decent man.


"Disturbia" was surprisingly good too. 

Ah also have "Amazing Grace" waiting on mih here... from de trailer it look something like de British version of Amistad, telling the story of William Wilberforce and Olaudah Equiano (aka 'Gustavus Vassah'), the African prince who was kidnapped and sold into slavery in America.  He subsequently escaped (ah reciting this from memory from thing ah read years ago so bear with mih) and somehow ended up on ah British naval vessel... went on to a life of high society in Britain.

Not sure how much of this made it into the movie, but they also showcase the story of John Newton, the former slave captain credited with writing 'Amazing Grace'.

I'll have to wait until I get some time later in the week, but can't wait to watch this.

Just finished watching this... boss flick.  A very slow movie, but very riveting...really tells a lot about the power of conviction, and how personal sacrifices sometimes, can really and literally be earth-shaking.

Ioan Gruffuud plays William Wilberforce, and Senegalese singer, Youssou N'Dour plays Olaudah Equiano... to lead a stellar cast that includes Albert Finney as John Newton.

Been waiting to see this one. The preview really does a good job of making you want to see it because it doesn't show any of the action. Yet it forshadows something serious happening within the movie.

You just have to sit and imagine the cold, calculating badness that Eastwood might be getting on with in the actual film.

Saw slumdog millionaire last night, enjoyed it

Taken was also enjoyable not a top movie but good never the less.

Next one my list is the wrestler.

... playing Mick "Mankind" Foley. 

I didn't see any Foley references other than the fact that he was in a match using barbed wire. I think I also read a review by Foley where he didn't have any connection to the film other than passing up a chance to consult on it.

Yeah you're right, I overstated how much it had to do with Foley.  I'd read a NYT review which stated that the character was based on Foley, I swear about a month ago... looked for it but can't find it.  Quite possible that I was hallucinating, lol.  Here's a review that he wrote for Slate online... http://www.slate.com/id/2207076/ kind make me want to check it out.

------

Saw Pathfinder last night, wasn't really expecting much... but man, what a nice decent movie.  It tells the story of the Vikings arrival in North America a couple centuries before Columbus and ponders why despite the early contact they never lasted.  The story is seen thru the eyes of the protagonist "Ghost" (Karl Urban, "Bourne Identity"), who is found alive in a wrecked Viking slaver and adopted by an Indian tribe.  His name derives from his obvious pale complexion, as he grows up and becomes one of the tribe, which years later find themselves under siege by a marauding band of Vikings who consider them savages- funny in itself, since the Vikings both in this movie and in real life weren't exactly known as exemplars of civilized behavior.

Ghost must lead the displaced tribe to safety and in the process try and find his true self, torn as he is between two worlds.  Good movie.

I like the hack and slash genre. LORT, Conan, 300, Gladiator, Braveheart...it just have something bout getting yuh head chop off or a arrow in yuh chest. The dreadest was a man in Braveheart collect a sledgehammer in he chest and fold up. Pure kicks.

They had one long time...cyar remember it with a barbarian fella and he had a bow that used to leggo some light up silver arrows...the baddie was a sexy woman with a silver/goldmask and a snake.

Last show I see was 7 pounds...will smith. I ent find it was bad.

I want to see Underworld and Grand Torino...the pirates have it already.

"Cry Freedom"
I remember it like it happened yesterday

By Deborah Earle (http://www.amazon.com/gp/pdp/profile/AOYTQFRLD8VLP/ref=cm_cr_rdp_pdp)
"Fresh from his 1983 Oscar triumph with the film, "Gandhi", director Richard Attenborough tackles the more timely topic of Apartheid in this stirring 1987 drama.
The always-spectacular Denzel Washington and Kevin Kline have the accents down pat in their lead roles as South African Freedom Fighter, Steven Biko, and journalist Donald Woods.
Washington's interpretation of Biko's dignity in the face of the vicious symbols of White authority is more than highly reminiscent of Ben Kingsley's performance in "Gandhi". It is marvelous to watch Washington and Kline interact with each other.
The story begins as dawn arises over a desperately impoverished township in the 1970s. Despite their marginalized existance in their own land, the Black Africans have a certain dignity about them, which makes them truly noble.
Soon, whatever calm existed amid the squalor is shattered by armoured cars of the White South African police, who maraud the township, and attack the innocent, unarmed occupants in a moment that evokes pure outrage.
We meet the White South African journalist destined to help turn the country around while hearing an inaccurate narrative of the events in the aforementioned township, as printed in the "Daily Dispatch", for which Woods is the editor.
Donald Woods, whose family had lived in South Africa for five generations, considers himself a liberal where the issue of Apartheid is concerned. But his path in life begins to change when one Dr. Ramphele (an exotically beautiful, and beautifully spoken Josette Simon) courageously arrives at Woods' office to personally express displeasure about about the paper's commentary about her friend, Steven Biko, and personally invites Woods to meet him.
Woods is led to a community center for Blacks where Biko's wife, Ntsiki (Juanita Waterman), with her beautiful son, Nkosanthi (George Lovell) in tow, escorts him to a shady area of a yard, where her banned husband can first be viewed in silhouette behind he leaves of a tree.
We see the contrast in Woods' own life --his lovely home in an affluent suburb with his wife, Wendy (Penelope Wilton), five children(Kate Hardie as Jane, Graeme Taylor as Dillon, hamish Stuart Walker as Gavin Adam Stuart Walker as Duncan, and Spring Stuart Walker as Mary), maid Evilina(Sophie Mgcina), and dog, Charlie.
Biko takes Woods on a trip through the Black townships, and introduces him to those helping in the Resistance Movement, most notably, Father Kani(Zakes Mokae). Soon, Woods' photographer, Ken(Kevin McNally, who later appeared with Kline in "De-Lovely") is accompanying Woods and Biko to soccer games that turn into Black political meetings, despite Steve's being a banned person, and both ken and Donald bravely join Biko in his quest to end Apartheid. Soon, Woods is facing he same risks as Biko as he brings Blacks to work in his news room to report the news about the Black community more accurately.
A raid on the Black community center led by one Captain De Wet (Timothy West) prompts Woods to speak with Pretoria's High Commissioner, James Kruger (John Thaw), which does more harm than good, as the police begin to harass Woods' family.
In the meantime, Biko continues to deny White authorities, practicing his belief in his own freedom and his right to travel wherever he wants to in his own land.
Tragically, the law catches up to Biko, and when he is beaten to death by the South African police-- who claim he died during a hunger strike--Woods must expose the truth about what happened---not just locally, but before the whole world.
After attending the beautiful and moving ceremony that is Steven Biko's funeral, Woods learns that he is a banned person, as was Steven; he is sentenced to five years where he cannot write anything publically or privately, nor can he be in the company of more than one person at a time aside from those of his immediate family. He decides that his family must leave South Africa because a publishing company in London wants his story on Steve. His wife objects to this at first. But when the attacks against her family mount, including threatening phone calls, vandalism, and finally, the delivery of chemically contaminated T-shirts to the children, she agrees, and the family find ways around police surveillance to become the 1970s answer to the Von Trapp family, leaving behind a comfortable life under a racist regime from which they might have easily benefitted to convey the story of Biko's struggle to the world.
The scenes of the 1976 massacre of schoolchildren are brutal, but important, as is the lesson provided by this film about how racial injustice does not stay compartmentalized to those for whom it is intended.
Among those helping him reach Lesotho are his friend, Father Kani, at one point, the South African police themselves, as Woods is incognito, and later, there is even assistance from a fellow bearing the rather symbolic name of Moses (Joseph Marcell).
The family's departure from their troubled homeland is almost as triumphant as the onscreen portrayal of the Von Trapp's exodus from Hitler's Austria in "The Sound of Music", but trailed by a very solemn message of a then-still-existing problem in South Africa.
As a coda to this story, the film resulted in a lifelong friendship between the real Donald Woods and his portrayer.
Some may feel that the African actors should have had more screen time. But even so, with Washington's amiably dignified performance counterbalanced by Kline's scholarly and nuanced style, both actors can feel satisfied that the making of this film was among the most important two hours they ever spent onsceen.

Yeah Defiance is a solid movie. Daniel Craig and Liev Schrieber especially, are good. Check out Underworld Rise of the Lycans. It was surprisingly good. I was disappointed after I read they were going back to expound on things we already knew(trying not to give it away).  I was also disappointed that Kate was not going to be in it.
However, now I would say it was the best of the three.

Woods is led to a community center for Blacks where Biko's wife, Ntsiki (Juanita Waterman), with her beautiful son, Nkosanthi (George Lovell) in tow, escorts him to a shady area of a yard, where her banned husband can first be viewed in silhouette behind he leaves of a tree.
We see the contrast in Woods' own life --his lovely home in an affluent suburb with his wife, Wendy (Penelope Wilton), five children(Kate Hardie as Jane, Graeme Taylor as Dillon, hamish Stuart Walker as Gavin Adam Stuart Walker as Duncan, and Spring Stuart Walker as Mary), maid Evilina(Sophie Mgcina), and dog, Charlie.
Biko takes Woods on a trip through the Black townships, and introduces him to those helping in the Resistance Movement, most notably, Father Kani(Zakes Mokae). Soon, Woods' photographer, Ken(Kevin McNally, who later appeared with Kline in "De-Lovely") is accompanying Woods and Biko to soccer games that turn into Black political meetings, despite Steve's being a banned person, and both ken and Donald bravely join Biko in his quest to end Apartheid. Soon, Woods is facing he same risks as Biko as he brings Blacks to work in his news room to report the news about the Black community more accurately.
A raid on the Black community center led by one Captain De Wet (Timothy West) prompts Woods to speak with Pretoria's High Commissioner, James Kruger (John Thaw), which does more harm than good, as the police begin to harass Woods' family.
In the meantime, Biko continues to deny White authorities, practicing his belief in his own freedom and his right to travel wherever he wants to in his own land.
Tragically, the law catches up to Biko, and when he is beaten to death by the South African police-- who claim he died during a hunger strike--Woods must expose the truth about what happened---not just locally, but before the whole world.
After attending the beautiful and moving ceremony that is Steven Biko's funeral, Woods learns that he is a banned person, as was Steven; he is sentenced to five years where he cannot write anything publically or privately, nor can he be in the company of more than one person at a time aside from those of his immediate family. He decides that his family must leave South Africa because a publishing company in London wants his story on Steve. His wife objects to this at first. But when the attacks against her family mount, including threatening phone calls, vandalism, and finally, the delivery of chemically contaminated T-shirts to the children, she agrees, and the family find ways around police surveillance to become the 1970s answer to the Von Trapp family, leaving behind a comfortable life under a racist regime from which they might have easily benefitted to convey the story of Biko's struggle to the world.
The scenes of the 1976 massacre of schoolchildren are brutal, but important, as is the lesson provided by this film about how racial injustice does not stay compartmentalized to those for whom it is intended.
Among those helping him reach Lesotho are his friend, Father Kani, at one point, the South African police themselves, as Woods is incognito, and later, there is even assistance from a fellow bearing the rather symbolic name of Moses (Joseph Marcell).
The family's departure from their troubled homeland is almost as triumphant as the onscreen portrayal of the Von Trapp's exodus from Hitler's Austria in "The Sound of Music", but trailed by a very solemn message of a then-still-existing problem in South Africa.
As a coda to this story, the film resulted in a lifelong friendship between the real Donald Woods and his portrayer.
Some may feel that the African actors should have had more screen time. But even so, with Washington's amiably dignified performance counterbalanced by Kline's scholarly and nuanced style, both actors can feel satisfied that the making of this film was among the most important two hours they ever spent onsceen.

Sadly it wasn't nominated for picture or director. I think it is a shame but I haven't seen the other movies. I thought the director, Aronofsky, did a hell of a job and real pull yuh into the story. Hopefully Rourke will win the individual honour.

Taken was a more than decent movie..

I ent see Gran Torino but I see Taken. Simple concept but very good film. I come out thinking it was a cross between "Man on Fire" (Denzel Washington) and Hostel 2.

Connery is Bond.  End of story. 

Moore was a decent stand in... but he was no different from his Simon Templar persona... except with the concomitant Licensed to Kill.

Dalton was an underrated replacement... is an underrated actor, period.

Brosnan was the absolute worst... a total waste.  I was thrilled when he was selected, nobody better personified the dashing, debonair, vagabond renaissance man more than he did.  But he flopped in the role... and to be honest, he was plagued with horrible writing.

Daniel Craig is the most realistic Bond.  Sean Connery, because of his talent, personality and the particularities of the period may edge Craig in my book, but in terms of embodying what an international state assassin, double-agent realistically should be... the role as re-written in Casino Royale (incidentally, the first in Fleming's Bond books) was perfectly updated for the contemporary world... and Craig was perfectly matched for the role.

Still haven't seen Quantum of Solace though... that getting done soon as ah find some time.

Yeah I didn't have a problem with Craig, damn good Bond IMO but the movie itself was a disappointment. Good opening and middle but from the time the torture scenes ended I feel the movie was meandering. I guess now that it was to set up QOS and was probably a part of the book but it seemed that it was just an unnecessary 30 minutes added on to the movie after the dramatic climax.

Incidentally another book adaptation that gave that feeling was the LOTR-Return of teh King. A full 20 minutes after the destruction or Sauron trying to tell some of teh stories that occurred in the book after that point. It wasn't afithful because they couldn't capture everything that happened after so why bother. For movie goers it was just having them sit through multiple endings long after the "story" was done.

Ex-mobster of 'Goodfellas' fame wanted in Calif.
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – A mobster-turned-FBI informant whose life inspired the movie "Goodfellas" is wanted for failing to appear in court on tickets alleging he was drunk in public in San Bernardino.

Henry Hill, 65, faces two $25,000 arrest warrants. He says he wasn't aware he needed to be present in court Wednesday and had asked for a new hearing date because he was having hernia surgery.

"I was hoping the court would understand," Hill told The Press-Enterprise of Riverside from his San Fernando Valley home.

The cases stem from two public intoxication arrests in May 2008. Hill said he was in alcohol rehabilitation at the time.

Hill was again arrested in Los Angeles earlier this year and released before his arraignment because of jail crowding.

"I don't remember much of all that, but I've been sober a month now," he told the newspaper. "I don't want to drink anymore."

The "Goodfellas" movie ends with Hill, played by Ray Liotta, entering federal witness protection after implicating fellow mobsters in murders and the 1978 heist of $5.8 million in cash from a Lufthansa Airlines vault in New York.

Drug arrests led to Hill being removed from the federal program in the early 1990s.

'Three Stooges' coming together at MGM
Wed Mar 25, 2009, 02:54 PM ET • Source: Hollywood Reporter

(WireImage.com/Sony Pictures)Nyuk-nyuk-nyuk.

MGM and the Farrelly brothers are finally slapping together their high-profile cast for "The Three Stooges," a comedy project the filmmakers have been developing for years. Sean Penn is set to play Larry, and Jim Carrey is in negotiations to play Curly. Benicio del Toro is a rumored possibility for the brothers' taciturn leader, Moe.

The studio is looking to start production in the fall for a 2010 release slot.

The project was originally set up at Columbia, which produced the 1930s Stooges shorts. C3 Entertainment Inc., which holds the licensing rights to the Stooges brand, then sold the feature rights to Warner Bros. in 2001 for the Farrellys to write and produce the movie. Eventually, Warner Bros. let the rights lapse and MGM's Mary Parent scooped them up along with the Farrellys' continuing participation.

Peter and Bobby Farrelly wrote the script, which Bobby has referenced as "Dumb, Dumber & Dumbest," and will produce with Bradley Thomas and Charlie Wessler. Earl and Robert Benjamin of C3 will executive produce.

The film is not a biopic but a fictional treatment that maintains the Stooges' gleeful slap schtick updated for a modern milieu.

Originally constructed as four separate shorts, the feature screenplay has since been streamlined into a single narrative. Included in the story line is an opening that shows the Stooges as kids in an orphanage, a device that will require some "Benjamin Button"-style visual trickery to place the adult actors' heads on child actors' bodies.

The Stooges maintain remarkably global brand recognition, and their shorts, films and cartoons are still broadcast in 30 countries. The Farrelly brothers' latest comedy "The Heartbreak Kid" grossed $124 million worldwide.

Penn is repped by CAA, Carrey by CAA and the Miller Co.

if you like politics and particularly italian politics, il divo (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1023490/) is a good flim. man, dem italians have style for days. it covers the political life of giulio andreotti. if you've seen godfather iii you might recognize one of his quotes:

I'm expecting a lot from this Movie Fast and Furious. I liked those other episodes as they always have some nice scenes. Just looked at Death Race wasn't a bad flick atall.

If you really want enjoy a race flick you will have to get the right sound system to carry over the effects for a good time. Your Audio receiver makes the whole movie really jump at you.

Finally saw Quantum of Solace... not bad, but the story line meanders too much, still not sure what going on dey.  Definitely no Casino Royale.



If allyuh get a chance check out a flick called Kicking It, an ESPN original documentary about the Homeless World Cup.  Boss... boss flick.  Along the way they highlight a couple stories, one fella, Craig Holley on the US team, young black hothead dude from NY; another dude the Kenyan captain, who can't score a penalty to save his life... but keeps defying his coach and taking them against his wishes... to the point that he's suspended from the team. 

Two interesting stories on the Irish team... two guys trying their best to overcome Heroin addiction and become contributing members of society.  There's a nice story about Jesus... the 62-year old Spaniard who's trying to recapture some youthful glory of when he spent 2 1/2 yrs with Real Madrid... and now battling alcoholism. 

Then there's the story of Slava and the Russian team, hoping to win a trophy and bring media attention to the plight of Russia's homeless.  Then the feelgood story of Nagib, the Afghan goalie who recalls terror under the Taliban, and finds love (Nilsa the Paraguayan hottie) at the World Cup.  South Africa serves as the backdrop... but the real action takes place on the court (street soccer) and in the lives of the players.  Boss flick is all I could say.

Marcos yuh serious?

Your analogy is way off because movies have previews, and this is part of a series.

If the preview, the best parts of a movie, intended to entice viewers is shitty, it is not a stretch to assume that the movie is shitty as well. Not to mention that it is a sequel in what is a shitty set of movies. They aren't the worst movies ever made but it is basic popcorn fodder. Very formulaic, with a "trick" ending, and more cars and ending.

I am sure that the scene where - two people racing and one press the Nitrous button, and then the next one press the nitrous button and then one of them win, and the next one lose -  is classic movie making.

Perhaps you'll feel better if instead of "shitty" I say "not to my taste". I imagine that if you are into colourful cars with neon lights and street racing it would have appeal, and it will definitely get a  lot of kids going to it. And I would even watch it and find it entertaining for its campiness and humour (I like Tyrese and I watch the second one and catch good kicks). But none of that makes it a "good" movie. If somebody ask for a recommendation I would say it is shit because they could easily be disappointed by it.

Horse i dead serious.
And you are judging a book by it's cover.
Iz one thing to say all the other movies you saw in the series were real shit. But to comment on it without even seeing it?
I now starting to feel that real plenty of y'all comment on football too without ever watching the matches. Saying a side or a player is shit, this time you never even see them play...just reading match reports and watching scores.

I can't even discuss the merits of the movie with you because you haven't seen it brodda. This discussion doesn't even make sense
Title: Re: Post ah movie thread

Absolutely. And giving a subjective opinion. Which is not to say that you can't think otherwise. How is it different to saying that a movie looks good based on its preview?

"Never judge a book by its cover" is a great code for treating people equally and not making generalizations about important things in life. It does not have much bearing on choosing to spend $20 dollars and 3 hours of your time at a movie. You are best advised to judge a book by its cover in that case. In fact that's what the previews are for.

I now starting to feel that real plenty of y'all comment on football too without ever watching the matches. Saying a side or a player is shit, this time you never even see them play...just reading match reports and watching scores.

This is spectacular jump in logic unless you have examples of me commenting on players or teams where you think my opinion might lack substance to support it. You have no way of even beginning to know how I describe football related subjects.

I can't even discuss the merits of the movie with you because you haven't seen it brodda. This discussion doesn't even make sense

Marcos it ent no scene. Nobody would take my statement as a definitive judgement of the movie. It was clearly a reference to the previous ones being shit and the fact that sequels tend to get worse as a series goes on.
Title: Re: Post ah movie thread
Post by: Marcos on April 08, 2009, 10:26:42 AM
"You have no way of even beginning to know how I describe football related subjects."

You judge movies without actually seeing them.
I think it is reasonable to assume that you comment on things without true knowledge of the subject, no?
Then it is not illogical to suggest that you comment on football without actually watching it.
Nothing spectacular about that jump bro.

And of course this is subjective, which is why I wanted to hear people's opinions on the movie. I didn't want to hear people's opinions on a movie they hadn't seen. If you want to discuss the trailer, fine...but to discuss the movie?

Nobody is asking you to go see the movie. You don't like the preview, then by all means skip this one. But don't talk with any kind of authority about something you really have no knowledge about.

Title: Re: Post ah movie thread
Post by: dwolfman on April 08, 2009, 01:09:48 PM
If the movie hasn't come out why bother to have any kind of discussion on it at all since apparently we have to wait to see it to have an opinion on it?

Didn't think this would have turned out to be a serious discussion. Who cares if the movie is actual shit or not? What one man would like another may not. It's not that serious to be going back and forth over.

I will end by saying if the first and then the rest in the sequel are shit do I really have to see the next one in the line to have a fair idea of what it will be like?

And wolfman, you don't think there can be a more fruitful discussion if ppl actually see the movie before discussing it?
You ever notice in book clubs they actually READ the book before discussing it?
And even critics WATCH a movie before bashing it?

Wow

Marcos we seem to have a disconnect. Capo aks if it is new shit. I said "new shit, emphasis on shit". In no way was this a detailed review of the movie. It wasn't even a discussion of the movie. The post was before the movie was even released so I didn't expcet anybody to take it as such. It is merely the expectation that the movie will be shit based on the previous movies and a ridiculous trailer.

Drawing direct comparison between that and football is a stretch. If you read my posts you will see that in the past few years I have rarely commented in a game thread, on players performances or even on Maturana because I have not been seeing the games. To generalize about how I post on football and then to extend that to how the rest of the forum posts, based on me classifying a sequel in a series of shit movies as shit, is a stretch.

Bro doh study it. I just talkin. I really haven't followed your football posts too much so I am just as guilty of jumping to conclusions.
Just enjoying the back and forth and was hoping to get some dialogue going on a movie i actually enjoyed.

Honestly parts 1 through 3 really were pretty shitty, with 1 and 3 having their moments and ultimately pffering some entertainment value.
This last one is actually superior to the 3 previous ones with a tighter script and better performances.

I was watching a few previews for a movie I  borrowed(Zack and Miri make a porno movie) and noticed a flick advertised with the Towers in Trinidad as the back ground. The movie called Contract Killers and was shot in Trinidad. Anyone seen this movie as yet? How was it?

Edit: Just did a search on Netflix and it popped up. Will be adding it in my queue.

Edit : 22/04/09

Got the movie today(Contract Killers) and it was so so. Nothing great or outstanding. It was mostly done in Trinidad and the scenes was Port Of Spain and Chaguaramas. This look like it was the same crew who directed Flight Of The Ibis. The main star of Flight Of The Ibis seem to be the bad guy in this movie. As usual they put in a few White Ppl to get some billing but not bad for a low budget.

 In some of the Street chases I see they real bang up ah old 626 and Corolla. All the cars in the chase them was ah set ah old car and a few nice car for the back drop. In the car chase they move from down town to chaguaramas in the blink of an eye. The best is when they describe Chaguaramas as the Chaguaramas Jungle. The Movie eh no best flick but it is a little better put together than the previous Flight Of The Ibis II.

Over all I would give it ah 2.5 out of 5.

Good movie but not what I expected. I found that it did not really use India as anything other than a backdrop.

That being said I liked Forest Gump so I could get into the story.

It is an English film based on an Indian book (Q&A, but I think it's been renamed to Slumdog Millionaire since the movie). It is also inspired directly by Bollywood movies such as Black Friday and Deewaar. There are filming styles that are also based on Bollywood themes or tropes.

Rags to riches themes are not soley a Hollywood theme, many Bollywood films have similar storylines and folk tales the world over also carry similar themes. What is the difference in movies with sport themes like Rocky, Mighty Ducks or Bad News Bears to Chak De! India or Lagaan?

To continue with Hollywood and Bollywood themes overlapping in sport (in this case) we can even compare Like Mike to Chain Kulii Ki Main Kulii. Incidentally, both were rubbish!

My point is that Slumdog Millionaire was not an Indian movie (vague since there are different kinds outside of Bollywood) in writing, but was inspired by an Indian storyline. The second point is that the themes for movie do not vary that much in a general sense so the fact that India (Mumbai) was the back drop for the movie is more significant in its identity than the rags to riches theme.

Tyson opens up about wild life in new documentaryUpdated: May 18, 2008, 12:41 AM EST 87 comments add this RSS blog email print CANNES, France (AP) - Mike Tyson considers it a miracle that he lived to tell his tale. And he's telling it — in graphic detail — in a new documentary at the Cannes Film Festival.
"I lived a wild and extreme life," the former heavyweight champion told reporters Saturday. "I used drugs. I had altercations with dangerous people. I slept with guys' wives that wanted to kill me. I'm just happy to be here, you know. It's just a miracle."

The 41-year-old former boxer got a prolonged ovation at the Cannes screening for "Tyson," directed by his old friend James Toback ("Fingers").

In the movie, which blends old video footage and TV interviews, Tyson talks about getting beaten up and stolen from when he was an overweight kid. He chokes up when reminiscing about his late trainer, Cus D'Amato, who transformed the troubled teenager into a world-class champion.

Tyson spares no details in describing his sex life, and covers his career's low points, like biting Evander Holyfield's ear in 1997. He admits to many, many bad decisions.

But on one issue, he still refuses to take responsibility. He insists he is innocent of the 1991 rape of an 18-year-old beauty queen for which he served three years in prison.

"I've been abusive to women before in my life," he acknowledged. But in this case, "I thought (the conviction) was wrong, I thought it was unfair."

Toback, who has known Tyson for 23 years and gave him small parts in "Black and White" and "When Will I Be Loved," said he talked to Tyson in a soothing, hypnotic voice to get him to open up for the film.


just finished watching this one. very personal and absorbing interview. goes all the way back to when he was a "fat kid" in brownsville, brooklyn to the present. the heights (relationship with d'amato) AND the lows (latent mysogyny) make this the kind of documentary you will never see made of muhammed ali.

watched zidane: a 21st century portrait. they basically track zidane through an entire match. the game is real madrid versus villareal in 2005. the have the galacticos (roberto carlos, ronaldo, raul, beckham, owen, etc.) plus riquelme, forlan and marco senna marking zidane for alot of the match. the match itself is tangential to zidane - weird effect. he makes a nice run down the left and chips it in to set up the tying goal. ends the match picking up a red card. is like watching a lion.

The Star Trek movie was fairly entertaining. I saw it on I-max and my eyes had a hard time keeping up for about the first 15mins or so.I went to the one on 42nd St in Manhattan, sat down about 12 rows back and felt like I was way too close to the screen. The experience was new but didn't like the effect I got from all the jagged camera work. I know it had nothing to do with the camera but more the equipment they used to view the movie.

I will try I Max in another theatre to make my final verdict if I get the same effect I think I will stay away from any of them (I Max). Anyone seen I Max as yet?

The movie had it's moments. It is a summer blockbuster, sit, eat yuh popcorn and be entertained for bout 2 hours. Yuh doh have to worry bout no deep characters or a whole movie in black & white with subtitles. To me the hardest thing was trying to figure out which robot was who once hurry hand start to pelt. The only award this getting is for special effects.

I still prefer the first one though. They kinda overdo it with the humor and buffoonry and it get old real quick. Some parts kinda drag a bit, but the slow-motion robot-on-robot action was good. In the end the robots & America save the world...

I have a few issues with this movie.

1) It coulda be 1hr shorter...cut out all dem scenery shot and develop the story with the jokey man/interpreter/translator in the butcher shop faster.

2) In fact you coulda leave out the butcher shop man.

3)The action coulda be slowed down a bit...in most of the fight scenes or the transformations it happen so fast it was simply a blur.

4) The final battle scene shoulda be longer and dreader...is two men he duss out...it needed some more umph in it.

Saw transformers on Saturday, had a blast. I saw in IMAX. well papa this movie have to be the most action packed I   have seen. You got to go with the action because it was all out war.In my estimation the storyline was good, the action good just the same. The show was so enjoyed that the audience eh move for 2-3mins after it fnished.I enjoyed this flick. The action can become a bit exhausting but it was real war so it understandable. I saw some people thought the the camera work was too fast. I didn't have a problem with it though.

Paranormal Activity

I watched a little bit of this movie and took it off, not because it was not to my liking but for the fact this sh*t was too scary for me and it was a true story. This movie got me looking at my doors and every lil noise I hear in my house when I am by myself, I get paranoid lol.

I not payin no money or downloadin nutting to get scared.

The invention of lying with Ricky Gervais

Went to see this a few weeks ago.  A really compelling story line about a world where people just cannot lie except for the Ricky Gervais character who can.  Had loads of possibilities and potential as a plot but fell flat on it's face for me.  So flat in fact that I was told i was snorin in de people theatre halfway thru.  De fact dat nobody wake meh ass up provides some insight that maybe everybody else was dozin off too.

Disappointing.

Went to see the 3pm IMAX or 3:30pm 3D Avatar showings and was informed that all the shows were sold out til 7pm. Decided to take in Sherlock Holmes instead. It's a Guy Ritchie movie so it was a little over the top, but entertaining and funny at times.

Went to see Avatar 3D last night. The ticket price rock me a little but wha-de-hell, ah went.
I enjoyed it. Since I had already seen the flat version, I was able to concentrate on the imagery and symbolism that I'd been hearing about.
The story reminded me of the Iraq war and we know one guy who is exactly like that colonel. The 3D effect was cool for the animals and the little floating tree-seeds but for the human(oids), not so much.

All in all, very entertaining in either film version. I give it a 7 out of ten.
__________

No desire to see Sherlock though. Holmes was originally written as a delicate almost effeminate character. Dapper, fashionably dressed, with a brilliant mind. This travesty of a new character is a little too much for me at the moment. I may rent it in a couple of years to waste time.  ;D

I saw a pirated version of Avatar online and felt compelled by the story. The are some similarities to The Last Samurai but din teef from it. This is a brilliant film. Then I saw it at cinema. The visuals even on standard projection are outstanding. I felt that they didn't act as filler for a vacuous story but simply enhanced it. I'm going to see it in 3d next week. Zoe Saldana's performance as tribe princess was convincing.

Not sure what you all talking bout extra for 3D, as I got een for $13 and it came with ah free popcorn. Absolutely one of the best movie for 2009.

Besides everything else people mentions about why they think the movie was outstanding, for me it was the story telling.. but not just that. The film started off with real people but as the plot grew and the animated characters morphed into the movie itself, it was hardly noticeable. Brilliant.

Funny enough I was speaking with a Brazilian chick the same night and she said the story reminded her about the amazon and the raping of the forest.

I've never been a fan of 3D, but this was impressive.

That is the major theme of the movie -the effect of man's unmitigated greed on the environment. I have to agree that it was one of my favourite movies of 2009. Some of the reviews not as positive but forget dem !

Legion was a surprisingly good movie... expected it to be bootleg Prophecy but that wasn't at all the case.  Similar theme but totally different storyline.

Black Dynamite was real kicks... it had its few corny moments but overall I ent laugh so hard in a long time.  Michal Jai White starred in it, playing the title role, a Shaft, Dolemite, SupaFly kinda character... but the movie is a parody of the blaxploitation flicks from the 70s.  Similar to I'm Gonna Git You Sucka and Undercover Brother... but mad funny.  And some good martial arts as well.

On the strength of that I also checked out Blood and Bone... man, dis movie was a sleeper.  Michael Jai White again, playing this underground street fighter.  Shame dis man ent getting he due as a martial artist... or as an action star, really... going all the way back to Spawn.  Cut-ass sharing from beginning to end, and all of it choreographed of course, but none of it looking fake.  And is all kinda break hand and ting man collecting.  Good flick.


Just get Ghosts of City Soleil in the mail there... will check it out later this weekend.

yeah, Inception was a good flick. ah have to watch it again. when it come out on DVD ah lookin for a director's cut with more explanation/background.

Inception was sickkkkkkkkkk. 10 "k"s for dat. I already see it twice. Second time i could appreciate it even more cuz I eh have to think as much to figure out wha goin on.

Best director making movies right now.

this is one movie you need to see at least twice. So much going on, you have to be alert to follow it.  Excellent movie - full of action too, not just a thinking person's movie

Best part for me is how he killed the judge while she was about to answer the phone. That piece of intense action....did it for me.  Score from 1-10? Man 11 yes!!

Inception, I'll wait until the crowds go down.

Saw a couple more in the last few weeks.

Book of Eli : Was decent nothing too big to talk about.

Zombieland: Funny for about the first 35 - 40 mins. Check it out.

The Crazies: Okay. Worth a look though.

Death at a Funeral: Funny.

Wolfman. Not bad. But I tired of the Warewolf ting. Time to come with something else.

In the last six months or so I've see so many apocalyptic movies. 2012. 2012 supernova. 2012 Doomsday and a number of of other documentaries on Natgeo.

Edge of Darkness: Mel Gibson was decent in this. Thought it was well put together.

Brooklyn's Finest. Thoroughly enjoyed this.

I hardly ever go to Theaters so excuse my late viewing. Doh do the bootleg ting with Movies. Got to see and hear every detail. ;D

BTW. Anyone saw New Daughter with Kevin Costner? Check it out.

Saw these three... enjoyed them.  BK's Finest, the twist at the end was kinda ehhh, but it was cool.

Also saw The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo... good flick (subtitled, if that is not your thing then try yuh DVD features for the English dub-over)

Smilla's Sense of Snow... finally saw it some months back.  Good flick.  European movies have a totally different pacing from American films, but I love them.

Book of Eli threw me though... wasn't feeling the ending at all, some implausible shit dey.  Was with them up until then.  The Hughes brothers is some shit if you ask me, but I have to hand it to them, they have some decent flicks:

Menace To Society
Dead Presidents
From Hell
Book of Eli

Somehow they manage to convince Hollywood to give them money to make movies.

I hear yuh on the twist at the end of Brooklyn's Finest. It was crazy but it make for some good watching I think.

In Book Of Eli I was looking for something like  that. I saw a review on the movie in Home Theater magazine and the hint was a really ridiculous ending so I was looking out for it. Sometimes the reviews could really screw up your mojo for a movie. ;D

The brothers I don't think I've seen enough of their movies to make a critic on them. I will take a look at menace to society and Dead Presidents.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Don't think I've heard of it. 

Did you see Blood and Bone as yet with Michael Jai White? Decent flick

Aye Bakes you having any problems getting movies(recent) these days from BlockBuster? Man is a trip to get them recent releases. Imagine I cyar get Legion, Unthinkable, Road. I only just get th Book Of Eli last week.

Well I usually switch up, sometimes I'll have stuff in my queue and go in the store and pick it up instead... I think that's how I saw Legion.  What they telling you online that it "available" but there's a "long wait" or something?  I does cyah deal with the long wait business.

I saw Blood and Bone.. discussed it here 3 months ago...

On the strength of that I also checked out Blood and Bone... man, dis movie was a sleeper.  Michael Jai White again, playing this underground street fighter.  Shame dis man ent getting he due as a martial artist... or as an action star, really... going all the way back to Spawn.  Cut-ass sharing from beginning to end, and all of it choreographed of course, but none of it looking fake.  And is all kinda break hand and ting man collecting.  Good flick.


Just get Ghosts of City Soleil in the mail there... will check it out later this weekend.

I was supposed to come back and talk about Ghosts of City Soleil... really good flick.  Documentary about two brothers who are gang leaders in "City Soleil", the sprawling slum in Port au Prince.  It details their battles with other gangs in the slums and talks about the support of the gangs for the Aristide government, and how in the void created by the ouster of Aristide (just as in post-Saddam) Iraq, how that power vacuum gave rise to further violence and bloodshed as gangs positioned themselves to seize control in the anarchy.  It's a personal story on some level, but shows how common and everyday violence is to the poor people of these neighborhoods.  On a more macroscopic level, it also shows how the entire country can be held hostage to corruption by politicians.

Good movie.

-------------------------------

Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is boss... a detective flick really, but only is civilians doing the detective work to revice a cold case involving the 40-year old mystery about the disapperance of a young girl.  Instead they stumble into investigating a serial killer at work.

There's a follow up to that coming out this summer called The Girl Who Played With Fire... I checking for that when it come out.

waltz with bashir is a strange one. it's an animated quasi-historical perspective of the civil war in beirut in the early 1980s from an IDF soldier's perspective. the animation is real cool. the narrative is dark and troubling. good flick if yuh into history, social commentary and animation.

Check out the Millennium Trilogy series of novels by the late Stieg Larsson.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest, were first published in 2005, 2006 and 2007 respectively.

Fun reading

Movie #2 "The Girl Who Played With Fire" was released (limited) in Canada a few week ago but only playing for more extended at the independent movie houses.

I just saw A History Of Violence yesterday. Decent flick. I won't suggest buying it but if you renting give this flick a try. It a bit slow but interesting, to say the least. The Fella Tom or whoever he really is real take down some bad man.

44 Inch Chest. No action but the dialogue is worth a look. Some old mafia fellas decide to kidnap a young fella and give him some serious kickass for thiefing one a them wife. Good jones.

Also Bucket List. Two ole man (Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman) end up in the same hospital room with cancer and decide to enjoy the last days of their life.

Leave it up to Jack to take a boring tail movie and make something of it  ;D

Man I have three books waiting on me on my shelf... including one that's been there 2 1/2 yrs now called "In The Heart of the Sea" about a shipwrecked crew in a lifeboat having to resort to murder and cannibalism to survive.  True story too... just can't find the time to open it as interested as I am.

Will try and check out the trilogy still though.  Last book I read was "A Civil Action" about three yrs ago... good movie too, starring John Travolta.

Saw 'Son of Man' an African take on the life of Jesus, updated with a modern interpretation of Jesus as a liberation fighter in an unnamed civil war-ravaged African nation.

The acting was bad and the story was weak... but some may like it.


Also saw 'The Fourth Kind'... a tale of alien encounters, supposedly based on a real story.  Seems instead that they went for the mockumentary approach ala 'Blair Witch Project' and failed miserably. Milla Jovovich was the lead actress and I like she, but unless she half-naked and shooting zombies I find she's ah waste ah time.  As was this movie.

Just saw "Date Night" and "The Box"... both of them were wastes of time.

Steve Carell is a funny dude, and Tina Fey is hilarious... but it didn't translate very well here.  The story is weak as ass and Steve Carell might as well be playing the same character he played in Jim Almighty, or wait... was it The 40-year old Virgin... or maybe it was The Office?  Yeah, time to develop a little bit of range.  And I like his movies but for some reason the silliness was overly irritating this time around.  Tina Fey didn't really add much to the movie either.  She's good on the small screen and better on SNL, here she just didn't do it for me.

As for "The Box"... steups.  James Marsden (Cyclops from X-Men) and Cameron Diaz play a couple who are visited by a mysterious guest with a proposition... if they push the button on a box they get $1million dollars... but someone, a stranger will die.  Good premise, but very strange, very confusing script.  Small part "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", small part "The Invasion", small part "The Stepford Wives".

None of it really works.

From paris with love I thought was seriously lacking in creativity and the acting was as Bakes said; Way over the top from Travolta. Somehow I just don't enjoy the grease man movies as much. I thought the trailer was wonderful. Put it in mih queue hoping for the best. As I suspected, it would be lacking.Don't know what it is about movies with him.

Today I take in Clash Of The titans and totally enjoyed it. No one should even be thinking of watching this movie without a sound Surround System in their arsenal. Without one you would be hearing less than average. I didn't see this in Theatres but was salivating for Audio/Visual effects. People thought it wasn't all that but I enjoyed it so much that I refused to return it. Got to see it just one more time. I gave this a 4.5 stars out of 5.

Unthinkable. Total Suspense. Loved it. Can't say the last time I saw a top of line suspense movie as Samuel seem to do well with these insane kind of characters. 5 Star

Legion. Little bit too much for me but still kept my interest to see what they will come with next. 3.5

But you had to admit the plot twist was a surprise. I didn't see that one coming at all.

Which one?  The one central to the movie involving she... or the decoy?  I pick up on both to be honest.


I ponging Travolta hear but I real like him as an actor... on a personal level too I give him nuff props for returning to work so soon after his son's death.  Different people deal with grief in different ways.

Today I take in Clash Of The titans and totally enjoyed it. No one should even be thinking of watching this movie without a sound Surround System in their arsenal.

You have more belly than men... I was totally psyched about seeing Clash of the Titans, being a big fan of the 1981 original with Harry Hamlin.  All ah that was for nought... they try to hide a kindergarten plot behind some CGI bells and whistles and it really ent wuk.  Peter Travers from Rolling Stone call it "a sham, with good actors going for the paycheck and using beards and heavy makeup to hide their shame." LOL

Ent see Unthinkable yet... but I enjoyed Legion even though ah find they take too much poetic license with the biblical mythology.

Unthinkable was good.  Samuel Jackson put the man through the wringer.
I found out after I watched Valhalla that the main character was the baddie in Casino Royale.
Good performances and little dialogue made Valhalla was very different and completely enjoyable.

Tyson opens up about wild life in new documentaryUpdated: May 18, 2008, 12:41 AM EST 87 comments add this RSS blog email print CANNES, France (AP) - Mike Tyson considers it a miracle that he lived to tell his tale. And he's telling it — in graphic detail — in a new documentary at the Cannes Film Festival.
"I lived a wild and extreme life," the former heavyweight champion told reporters Saturday. "I used drugs. I had altercations with dangerous people. I slept with guys' wives that wanted to kill me. I'm just happy to be here, you know. It's just a miracle."

The 41-year-old former boxer got a prolonged ovation at the Cannes screening for "Tyson," directed by his old friend James Toback ("Fingers").

In the movie, which blends old video footage and TV interviews, Tyson talks about getting beaten up and stolen from when he was an overweight kid. He chokes up when reminiscing about his late trainer, Cus D'Amato, who transformed the troubled teenager into a world-class champion.

Tyson spares no details in describing his sex life, and covers his career's low points, like biting Evander Holyfield's ear in 1997. He admits to many, many bad decisions.

But on one issue, he still refuses to take responsibility. He insists he is innocent of the 1991 rape of an 18-year-old beauty queen for which he served three years in prison.

"I've been abusive to women before in my life," he acknowledged. But in this case, "I thought (the conviction) was wrong, I thought it was unfair."

Toback, who has known Tyson for 23 years and gave him small parts in "Black and White" and "When Will I Be Loved," said he talked to Tyson in a soothing, hypnotic voice to get him to open up for the film.


I liked this documentary a lot.  and the Che with Marlon Brando I believe (sorry my life so hectic I don't have time to memorize actors names, or watch too much movies).  Lemme get a old recommendation of something along these lines nah.  Is real kick up and shoot up I have to sift thru on this thread, and I ent watch them kinda ting since I stop being 15 yers old.

Look wikipedia say Eamonn Walker is half Trini.

Walker was born in London to a Grenadian father and a Trinidadian mother, in 1980.[1][2] Brought up in Islington in London,[3] Walker lived in Trinidad for six months when he was nine years old.

I remember looking him up years ago... because I knew he was British and with a name like Eamonn (Irish name, but one of my great-uncles had the same name) I figured he had to be WI like so many black Brits.  I knew he was part Grenadian... but they either didn't have that part about him being Trini, or I forgot about it.  Cool, good to know.


--------------------

EDIT:  now I wondering how good that info is... Wikipedia have three dates of birth for him, the first sentence say he born 1962... the blurb in the box to the right say he born 1959... and that part about his Trini mother say he born 1980, lol

I've heard of that movie before, I will put it on my list.

Anyone saw the documentary Collapse? I borowed it on DVD and was amazed by the content. This guy(Michael Ruppert) gave a run down as to what could take place in the world's economy. Very eye opening for those interested. I mean my grandmother used to tell me about the days to come where people will have money and can't even do anything with it. :o Thought provoking.

After checking that out yesterday low and behold I end up watching The Road, well yes, I was messed up to say the least. Movie depressing as hell.

Tyler Perry's "Why Did I Get Married Too" was shit to the nth degree.  All kinda contrived soap opera drama and none of it making much sense. Scenarios which defy both law and logic... silly me for giving him the benefit of the doubt that this would be closer to the first installment, and not utter shit like the rest of his movies.

The Blind Side was patronizing and annoying, but not as much as I'd anticipated... I brakes from watching it for that reason, but it wasn't too bad.


I brakes from watchin Robin Hood too b/c I ent a fan of Russel Crowe.  I liked him in Gladiator of course, and L.A. Confidential... thought he was decent in American Gangster too, but otherwise, not a fan.

Anyways, as to Robin Hood, ah finally watch it and it was decent... the action scenes was kinda boss, but at this point is like once yuh see Braveheart or any of them other period pieces, yuh kinda seen them all. 

The one exception for me is Kenneth Branagh's Henry V... boss movie.  Was reading the book for a class while in college and the professor recommended we watch this interpretation.  Boss, boss war flick... the battle scenes was both chaotic and beautifully choreographed at the same time.  The St. Crispin's Day speech before the Battle of Agincourt was very realistic and very moving... one of the best ever on film in my book.  And then the battle itself.  Other movies, notable The 300, The Last Samurai... and this same Robin Hood have borrowed heavily from it... but the scenes of volleys after volleys of arrows flying thru the air... breathtaking.  You really get the sense that the French were under siege, as these arrows literally start raining down on them, and there was no shelter from the deluge.  The supremacy of the English archers is what carried the day.

Anyways, good movie... allyuh should check it out.

More on Henry V's the St. Crispin's Day Speech...

The backdrop as I remember was that the French King was spoiling for war with England, because England was particularly vulnerable at this point because it was tired from war (this was during the Hundred Years War) and Henry was a young king who the French Dauphin (pronounced "dough-fawh" not "doorfin" eh, lol) convinced the King, would be ah easy mark.  So Henry get wind of the plan, especially since they sent to spies to unsucessfully assassinate him.  So he decide to take the battle to the French on their own soil, sailing across the Straits of Dover.

This was seen as madness, because not only would they be fighting on enemy soil, but his men weren't soldiers, but just random blokes he chain up into joining the cause.  On the other side France had ah nice fat professional army just spoiling fuh ah fight.  So anyways, the big battle looming and some of the men starting to question the wisdom of travelling all de way to France to pelt stone at this jep nest.  Them feel they was marching into a slaughter given that they was out-numbered 5-to-1 by the French ("300" thing nah).  So in this scene Henry happen to overhear some of the concerns and decide to give the troops ah pep talk.  Good stuff... this is where the "Band of Brothers" talk come from... and why it so fitting in the war context.

Here are a couple clips:


First the 1944 version by the great, Sir Laurence Olivier


http://www.youtube.com/v/P9fa3HFR02E



Then the much, much better (almost sacrilege for me to say as a fan of Olivier, but it is) Kenneth Branagh version from 1989.

Here's another take...and ah li'l something extra, from Renaissance Man

http://www.youtube.com/v/ApcrdI-XPdU


Ah post that fuh de contrast it offers compared to the other two... but also because it kinda interesting.  De idiot yute who reciting the lines as Pvt. Benitez in this scene name is Lillo Brancato.  Dah fella had a promising acting career, starring in A Bronx Tale opposite DeNiro and N'Bushe Wright, and was in The Sopranos as well (Tony nephew-in-law or something so).  Tony decide he had tuh kill him, but offer him ah Coke before he shoot him.  As pardna sip he Coke Tony ask him how it taste, if it taste good.  He say "yeah", Tony say "good, because that Coke will be the last thing you taste you c*cksucker" and pull out he gun.  When he see de gun de facka bawl "Mommy!" as they start tuh light him up...  :rotfl:  Ah always remember dat scene... lol

Anyways... ah say "had a promising" career because he end up mixed up in a burglary where he and he girlfriend father end up killing ah off-duty cop who confront them.  The policeman leggo some lead in dey backside and they end up getting ketch not far from the scene.  He serving 10-years upstate as we speak.

Over the last few weeks I saw some others movies.

Baraka no talking or nothing but the scenes and images and sounds are breathtaking. Again a surround system will be of benefit to those taking in this but first and foremost the scenes are what you want to see.

Youth In Revolt don't waste your time.

I said it earlier take a look at the documentary Collapse for those interested in the environment and conspiracy theories.

Harry Brown
okay flick nothing too much but good solid old time acting by the equalizer(can't remember his name).

Remember Me I enjoyed this. It was a different spin for me.

Open House was uninspiring movie making. Totally nonsensical to have a person killing people at will in someone's house. Realtor dead and no one even passes by to check on anything. The best is a dinner for neighbors and no one suspect anything. Wasted space on my list.

My name is Khan movie start off strange and slow but was a nice story. Totally enjoyed this one. Movie was long no arse but totally captivating.


Bounty Hunter with Gerard Butler and Jennifer Anniston. Didn't enjoy this one at all. Just a flat  garbage movie.

The Losers okay action for an action starved 2010 movie industry. It filled a bit of a 2010 action void. I think some may enjoy this a bit.

Cop OutStarring Bruce Willis and Tracey Morgan was hilarious. I thought it was going to be a waste but I was rolling on my sofa with this one.

Green Zone. I think they had a lot to say in this one. This one is about the the war that taking place in the mid east right now . Gave a couple insights as to what may have triggered the occupation. Matt Damon starred in this with the same producer that did the Bourne trilogy. I gave this 4 out of 5 stars.

The Losers okay action for an action starved 2010 movie industry. It filled a bit of a 2010 action void. I think some may enjoy this a bit.

This was decent.  Zoe Saldana almost worth the price of admission to see any movie she in.  What a fine piece of eye-candy.

Cop Out was hilarious. I thought it was going to be a waste but I was rolling on my sofa with this one.

Straight up funny.

Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is boss... a detective flick really, but only is civilians doing the detective work to revice a cold case involving the 40-year old mystery about the disapperance of a young girl.  Instead they stumble into investigating a serial killer at work.

There's a follow up to that coming out this summer called The Girl Who Played With Fire... I checking for that when it come out.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest, were first published in 2005, 2006 and 2007 respectively.

Fun reading

Movie #2 "The Girl Who Played With Fire" was released (limited) in Canada a few week ago but only playing for more extended at the independent movie houses.

The English language remake is in the works.

Rooney Mara   ...     Lisbeth Salander
Daniel Craig ..    Mikael Blomkvist

Yeah I had looked it up after we first discussed it... the plan seems to have fans of the novel up in arms, and for good reason.  I like Daniel Craig... thought Casino Royale was the finest interpretation of the Bond character ever, even better than Connery.  That said, I am yet to find an English languager interpretation of a foreign film that was better (except maybe 'The Ring', but dem Japanese does set de bar real low, lol).

Some recent favorites:

Invictus

Good movie.  I'm not the biggest Morgan Freeman fan, and the thought of him playing a newly-minted President Mandela, with Matt Damon as the white captain of the national rugby team, wasn't exactly what I thought of as entertaining.  But Clint Eastwood is the director, and sure enough he didn't disappoint. Inspired "by true facts", it shows Mandela to be a shrewd politician, despite being free only 5 yrs now after 30 on Robben Island. 

Mandela realizes how much rugby, and the Springboks mean to the Afrikaaners and sets out to use the team as an entity under which the whole country can bond.  The problem is that for the black South Africans the Springboks, their tradition, their colors... everything, represents the old days of apartheid, so getting them to embrace the national team would be no easy feat, but a critical one if the young rainbow nation is to survive.  Helpful is the fact that South Africa has been chosen to host the 1995 Rugby World Cup.

Good movie... very inspirational.

The Hurt Locker

Another movie I didn't really have much interest in at first... even after all the awards, and boy was it well-nominated.  According to IMDB this movie received 120 nominations, winning 73 Awards, among them 6 Grammys, including Best Picture and Best Director.  The movie deals with a bomb disposal unit in Iraq, the tensions over being in the middle of a war, added to the stress of the trade... bomb disposal, walking around with a target on your back all the time, not knowing who among the local population to trust, etc.

Really good movie.


Notorious

Biopic about the slain rapper, the Notorious B.I.G.  I avoided this movie like the plague, thought it would be some serious shit... for a number of reasons.  This one really hits close to home, I didn't know Biggie or anything but I used to see this dude around my neighborhood since he used to be hustling on my block, right across from my living room window.  This was back in 1989, long before he blew up. 

I remember that block for a number of reasons, not the least of which being that 920 Fulton St. was the first place my family moved to after coming here to the US.  Right above the A and the C train, walking distance to downtown Brooklyn, and when I was feeling brave enough, walking distance to school, at 1700 Fulton almost 2 miles away.  I'll also remember this place b/c this was some serious hard times for me and my family, my mother and them worked upstate NY and were home only on weekends, so I lived by myself during the week, and nuff times mankind had to go to sleep hungry.  Nuff times we used to wake up to find that some crackhead or the other came up the stairwell and took a crap on the stairs... pile ah feces right next to two or three empty crack vials.

I remember looking out my window and seeing these fellas selling drugs. One time I happen to scrape together enough pennies and quarters to go across de street and buy mih 3 chicken wings with extra mumbo sauce... only to see ah li'l fella fish out a 4-inch wad of money from he pocket to buy he food... and here I is damn near a grown man depending on my mother and dem to feed and clothe me.  I eh go lie... the temptation was strong.

Anyways... Biggie was also my favorite rapper, after all ah dat, and here it is, this is a movie financed by his mother and Puffy, and most of the actors were unknowns.  So I had real doubts... but was pleasantly surprised by how the movie got me caught up.  Hard to say it wasn't biased... after all is his people telling his story.  But I thought it was even-handed in showing everything, flaws and all.  Gravy (Jamal Woolard) was very believable as Biggie, with Anthony Mackie (also co-starring in Hurt Locker, above) as Tupac.  Angela Bassett played his mother, which I didn't agree with... what, Sheryl Lee Ralph wasn't available?  But anyways, the movie was good... and if you're a fan of the music that's just an added treat as it have nuff behind the scenes stuff, from the recording studio, to the concerts etc.  Brings to mind another great hip-hop flick, 8 Mile... not that it anything like it, but the mix of good story, good drama and great music very similar.


The Diary of a Tired Black Man

I see this shit sitting on de shelf at Blockbuster and could only shake my head.  It was clearly biting that next Tyler Perry movie Diary of a Mad Black Woman.  But I end up ketching it on Showtime last night... it arrite man.  Unlike the Tyler Perry movie, this is more a documentary about relationships between black men and women, told from the perspective of a man of course, with street interviews with real people... and the occasional vignette thrown in.  Some of the scenes in the vignettes are exaggerated and play into stereotypes... but there were some occasional nuggets of wisdom from the interview subjects.  I found myself nodding along in agreement on more than a few occasions.  On others I could only shake my head... is no wonder why we have so many issues between black men and women, lol.  And we here shouldn't delude ourselves into thinking that it only applies to African-Americans.

What?  There are plenty examples... from the Rush Hour franchise, to several Jet Li movies (Kiss of the Dragon, Romeo Must Die etc.)  For starters there aren't that many ethno-centric roles in Hollywood these days, certainly not many with an asian character exclusively in mind.  For another, the days of Kung Fu and Charlie Chan are long past. 

In fact I should turn the question on you... when last has a role intended for an asian actor gone to a non-asian?

"um" what?... I supposed to be a mind reader?  How I supposed to know what you meant to say?  In fact, using that as a criteria Green Hornet doesn't even count since the movie wasn't developed around Cato's character. There are very few Hollywood movies developed around asian characters, in fact as stated before there are very few movies these days that are developed around ethno-specific characters... Harold and Kumar is about the only one that even remotely comes close in mind.  What are these "other cases" that you mention?

Doh fack mih up... Matt Damon (think of the job he did as Jason Bourne), Tobey Maguire, Joseph Gordon-Levitt... heck, even Will Smith over Leo.  They coulda get Tony Jaa or even Hiroyuki Ikeuchi (since Cato was really supposed to be Japanese and not Chinese).

another very good documentary is who killed the electric car? which chronicles the life and death of the GM EV project. imagine GM sat on this technology - wdmc!! they could have initiated and owned the next generation of automobiles - instead they end up taking a bailout. that is not leadership. :-\

The Adjustment Bureau


http://www.youtube.com/v/jDVVyGRPyZY

Boss flick... the premise is essentially that we live our lives exercising a limited range of free choice, with the rest being scripted for us.  Every now and then we go "off plan" and that warrants "an adjustment", where the adjusters step in, freeze us (and anyone else necessary) programs the right action  plan into our heads and we carry on back on plan.  Straying too far off plan might cause the adjusters to reveal themselves to us (we normally have no recollection of the adjustments) and if too huge an adjustment is necessary or if we reveal the adjusters to anyone else then a total "reset" (sorta like a disk format) is done and we have no recollection of anything, not even our families. 

Some really cool special effects, simple as they are they are employed to great effect.


The King's Speech


http://www.youtube.com/v/-aS4hoOSlzo

It's no wonder this movie one Best Movie at the Academy Awards two weekends ago... powerful movie.  The story is essentially that King George V (Queen Elizabeth's grandfather) is old and needs an heir.  He has two sons, Princes Edward (Guy Pearce) and Albert (Colin Firth), but Edward is taken with an American divorcee, Wallis Simpson (a scandal to the Church of England, who can't have its head marry a divorced woman), and Albert lacks confidence and has a serious stutter (or "stammer" as we and the Brits call it).  George dies and Edward as older son becomes king, but abdicates the throne to marry the twice-divorced Ms. Simpson. 

Albert in the mean time has been working with Lionel Logue (Geofrey Rush) to improve his speech impediment.  By the time of Edward's abdication Albert is mortified at speaking in public, but has begun to make improvements.  He becomes King and keeps Logue, despite the protest of some of his advisors.  WWII breaks out, Hitler starts his invasion of European nations, Great Britain is threatened and Albert, now King George VI, must reassure a restive empire.  The advent of radio puts an even greater premium on the ability to speak to the citizens... and so Logue sets out to prepare the King for this all important speech.

One of the best movies I've seen in quite some time.

Water for Elephants - damn good film and a bonus for those who like period pieces.

Hanna - not bad about a young 16 year old girl trained in isolation from young to battle the CIA. I believe the star is the same girl from the Lovely Bones - Saoirse Ronan.

Storm was a ho?  Ent see it yet... but yuh should check out the entire X-Men series.  X2, the second was in my mind the best.  That opening scene to me is the most fantastic opener to a movie that I have ever seen. Closely rivaled by the parkour chase in Casino Royale.


Planet of the Apes looking very decent.  I ent like that is so much CGI... but understandable why they need to use it.  If by "mentally and spiritually" disturbing yuh mean the disorienting feeling you get from seeing a "lesser" species dominate... then yeah.  Reminds me of how I felt when I saw a vid of a giant centipede killing and eating a mouse... morbid curiousity, I eh really dat sick.

She got all the looks from both parents. Her mom is "Denise" from the Cosby Show. But she's not a good actress...very attractive though.

I could just not say anything, and make sure some of you never even hear about this movie, but I feel some ppl can benefit from my mistake.
Do NOT watch "A Serbian Film".
DO NOT WATCH IT.

In my defense I was checkin out the show list for a horror movie festival.  I watched "Red White and Blue" and I will recommend that one.  Next on the list was "A Serbian Film".  Now I can't bring myself to watch the others in the list.

Interesting review from Fear.net. I briefly scanned some reviews that stated the movie had no message at all. This reviewer thinks that it is making a statement about the dehumanizing effect of experiencing sadistic violence. I find it interesting only because one of the under-reported facts of war is the brutality and dehumanization that occurs. Basically when you get used to killing a sworn enemy people to survive, rape, torture and pillaging presents less of a moral dilemna.

This seems to be an extension of that in the sense that if you get accustom to watching vile shit for entertainment the boundaries of what you find acceptable could be affected as well.

Peong's warning seems really appropriate. Watch at your own peril. I curious though Peong yuh watch the whole thing?


SXSW 2010 Review: 'A Serbian Film' (http://www.fearnet.com/news/reviews/b18477_sxsw_2010_review_serbian_film.html)
Tue., Mar. 16, 2010 1:32 PM PDT , by Scott Weinberg

Imagine you're a car mechanic and you're tasked with fixing a car made entirely of body parts. Or pretend you're a doctor who is faced with a shocking, violent disease that nobody's ever seen before. Now here's me: a (very) horror-friendly film critic who is asked to review a film that's so shocking, so outrageous, and so legitimately disturbing that it boggles the mind. Yes, even the mind of a trained writer who's seen and reviewed thousands of horror films. And while I generally detest the employment of superlatives within my film reviews, I feel I can state, without fear of contradiction, that A Serbian Film is one of the most disgusting, unpleasant, and ANGRY films I've ever seen.

And if you think I mean that as a knock against the film, well then keep on reading.
On the surface, here's the deal: We open with a nine-year-old boy who is watching a pornographic film. We quickly discover that the film is one of his father's tapes. As in, his father is the star of the porno. Yikes. Mom and Dad show up, yank the cassette out of the player, and point the child toward the decidedly more appropriate activity of singing. But little Peter isn't all that great of a singer, which is why Mama asks her husband, Milos, for some money.

This simple request offers a clear indication that the family is short on cash, which means it's time for Milos to reluctantly return to the world of hardcore porn. Only ... in Serbia, the word "hardcore" doesn't mean what it used to. Without getting too vile, let's just say that Milos' new director has a rather ... extreme ... view of the porno biz. His films are less about the pleasures of human sexuality, and more about the exploitation, the degradation, and the ceaseless victimization of the human animal.

But then ... everything I've just described is merely the surface layer of A Serbian Film, and it's probably the least fascinating. So while it's true that a large portion of disturbing porn oozes out of Eastern European countries these days, and that it's a darkly compelling story to tell, I'd say A Serbian Film is actually "about" a group of angry young filmmakers whose country has been beaten and battered virtually beyond repair. I'd venture to say that A Serbian Film could only come from a group of people who've lived through some stunningly painful experiences, and are now dead-set on throwing their collective fury on to a movie screen.
"You watched it! You can't UN-WATCH it!"
is a rather amusing line that I discovered in an episode of Futurama, and it's one I love to yell immediately after seeing a film that has somehow scarred itself onto your brain. A Serbian Film not only fits that description; it's actually "about" the inability to "un-watch" something horrendous. The film posits the belief that once your eyes and your brain are pummeled with visions both horrific and inhumane, that you're never really the same. The creators of A  Serbian Film have seen such things first-hand, and their film seems aggressively intent on delivering some moments that, indeed, you will never forget. Even if you want to.

It's a Haneke-style trick being played on the audience, in a way, because as we watch Milos struggle through a series of monumentally disturbing misadventures, the flick actually DOES toss a few unforgettable horrors at the screen. To catalog such events would be a grave disservice to A Serbian Film, as this is in no way a "fun-time" horror flick, nor are the "nasty bits" anything close to fun. One gets the clear impression that the sickest moments are meant to judge an audience's willingness to leap into the truly vile and nihilistic side of the swimming pool -- but as a seasoned genrevore, I was stunned, shocked, and actually rather impressed. This is truly a film that pulls no punches, for better or for worse.

Practically unreleasable in its current state, A Serbian Film feels like a giant, screaming exclamation point of a film -- from a nation that rarely produces films at all. I think the film is tragic, sickening, disturbing, twisted, absurd, infuriated, and actually quite intelligent. There are those who will be unable (or unwilling) to decipher even the most basic of "messages": buried within A Serbian Film, but I believe it's one of the most legitimately fascinating films I've ever seen. I admire and detest it at the same time.
And I will never watch it again. Ever.

Limitless...is a decent flick, but I still find they coulda do more. Is about a tablet that allows you to use 100% of your brain. If you already smart you get even more inna gear.

Next 3 days is also a good show...Russel Crowe did a good one here...only thing is the beginning moves a bit slow but once the plan in action...is pace.

I going and take in Unknown sometime over the weekend.

Limitless was decent eh, actually enjoyed it but that is a real high man movie... For me it come across in a subtle way as some kinda advert for drug use, or a pat on the back for all them white collar cocaine users in corporate America.

Priest was a decent lil flick too, nutten too special but good all the same.

Hangover 2 was Hangover 1 all over again.. It had some moments, but it was a basically a remake of part 1 set in a next country, it wasn't no sequel.

Fast Five was real good in terms of an all out action movie as long as yuh dont try to think too hard about the plot and yuh willing to overlook the fact that The Rock cyah act to save he life. That last car chase scene was riveting as it was a dumb.. Imagine men pull down a whole city with 2 charger and a bank safe and taking corner like normal lol.

Is it me or the film industry real starving for invention these days? I find myself scanning the movie listings since the start of this year and finding 1 watchable movie in the cinema at the most. I say that was just until summer but now is like all i waiting for is Transformers 3.

Imagine men actually get funding to make a serious adult version movie about Little Red Riding Hood.

I enjoyed The Warrior's Way.  Comic-book style badman movie about a samurai swordsman in the wild west, with good action but there was plenty corniness involved.

Skyline had nice special effects but the rest of it was garbage.

I saw Monsters a while back and I enjoyed it a lot.  Despite a very low budget it was well-made.

The Adjustment Bureau was enjoyable.  I doh know why Obama was hatin on it.

bay did a decent job but the storyline has changed so much from the cartoon that annoys me a lot when i watch transformers

from starscream voice not being the same to renaming the autobots matrix of leadership to the all spark, is garbage, but i understand why because the matrix series already had been released

parts of the story like metroplex, omega supreme and unikron not being essential, to the original music from the cartoon movie should have been included

i hope they take voltron or robotech to feature film but they will have difficulties because the new generation will think its a bite from transformers  >:(

not to mention megatron is still megatron and has not completed the transformation to galvatron  >:(

I don't get your ire nah.  Megatron's voice is also very different.  Who besides Cullen voiced in the original series?  The 80's rock power ballads used in the original cartoon were used because it was current music.  Why should they use retro music today?
And if you want to see the original storyline with original voices and music, just re-watch the original series.

at least they kept as close to megatron's voice as possible, starscream being a main villain should have had his voice in there, things as those made the cartoon, same way with soundwaves voice, die hard transformers fans like myself who know the cartoon inside out would agree and have agreed that there were failures in the storyline and with the characters

whats wrong with doing a cover of the song? millions know the song, and would have loved some elements to remain, thats what made transformers a huge cartoon, this version has lost its way on many angles.

Chris Latta & Hirotaka Suzuoki did starscream in the original, Frank Welker for soundwave, megatron and galvatron.

plus no sign of the Quintessons who made the transformers, sorry breds, the story is weak, read the reviews from cartoon die hards other than me and film critics, it didn't cut it

Megatron's voice in the current movies is much deeper and spoken lower than in the cartoon. It sounds like he was speaking under his breath. (It was Agent Smith for those who interested). In the cartoon Megatron's voice was loud and harsh.  I don't think they tried to keep it like it was at all.  
Soundwave's voice was well done in the movies.

The Quintessons and Galvatron, that came after two whole seasons in the movie, which gave them enough time to tell the story.
The movies could have been weak if they used more of the original plot too especially with the time constraints.  If that had happened men  like you would be livid.

whats wrong with doing a cover of the song? millions know the song, and would have loved some elements to remain, thats what made transformers a huge cartoon, this version has lost its way on many angles.

What you and the other diehards fail to acknowledge, is that they didn't make the movie fuh allyuh, but to appeal to a wider audience.  This version "lost its way" to becoming a legitimate franchise and smashing box office success.

its doing well at the box office because the majority of viewers don't know a thing about transformers, they going based on marketing hype, not because the movie is great and has a superior plot to other sci fi movies

but the cg was poor in the first film, it has improved.

Megatron's voice in the current movies is much deeper and spoken lower than in the cartoon. It sounds like he was speaking under his breath. (It was Agent Smith for those who interested). In the cartoon Megatron's voice was loud and harsh.  I don't think they tried to keep it like it was at all.  
Soundwave's voice was well done in the movies.

The Quintessons and Galvatron, that came after two whole seasons in the movie, which gave them enough time to tell the story.
The movies could have been weak if they used more of the original plot too especially with the time constraints.  If that had happened men  like you would be livid.

if they can go back to sentinel prime and cybertron they can go back to the quintessons and forward to galvatron since megatron was defeated by optimus more than once and died in the first installment

the voice was done well for megatron despite it being deeper than the cartoon which i know, but it is close to the original, unlike strascream, soundwave is close but they should have gotten the original voice actors, if they are still alive, however they failed with the storyline and im not the first to say this, many major comic book and cartoon critics agree with my opinion.

take for example what peter jackson did with lord of the rings, he stays as close to the book as possible and he did a marvelous job, bay strayed and paid for it, because transformers could have been an even bigger box office hit than what it is now, rather than just being a visually stunning display of cinema with a weak storyline

"Marketing hype" would explain a good opening box office weekend... followed by poor numbers.  The strength of the franchise over three installments now is testament that the movie is successful, independent of any supposed marketing hype... not even sure why you're trying to argue this.  But at any rate, even if I were to concede your point for argument's sake... all the studio is concerned about is the bottomline, and as you've admitted, it's doing well at the box office.

sometimes its more than just the bottom line breds  8)

and i would expect a movie that has over 55 million in marketing dollars behind it to do well

compared to a movie like kings speech that costed a little over 8 million and grossed over 400 million, excellent story and acting, small marketing budget

transformers didn't need a huge marketing budget because it already had that huge following, it needed better acting and screenwriting, just my opinion as a transformers fan who has spoken to many other transformers fans who feel the same way

its funny you say that because i liken that line to transformers, because it lacks substance but looks pretty to the movie goer, pulling a profit because of their marketing dollars behind it and michael bay as director

i fully agree breds, i was disheartened to see how the first one came out after having a director like bay on the job

i think if goyer had written for transformers, it would have been better, maybe even branaugh, nolan or favreau would have been a better suited director imo

bay is a great director but not for sci fi, not his field of expertise, even snyder would have been a better candidate, adding a dark side to the movie and enhancing it with a better screenplay

a re-boot is possible, but i can't see it for another 15-20 years sadly  :(

breds now you talking  ;)

nolan did an excellent job with batman, pulling from the batman universe, with notable characters in the first installment, nobody thought he would have approached it that way and look how well it turned out, superb acting, cinematography and the screenplay was great

my top choices in terms of directors for the transformers series would have been

jj abrams, nolan, favreau, branagh and snyder, hands down

i think the transformer series would have been much better under these directors, not to take away from bay because i think he is an excellent director but not for transformers

you are not giving credit to the media and its power in terms of marketing a product to consumers

your talking about over 55 million dollars on an action movie, 5 times the budget of an oscar winning feature film from earlier this year as an example. without the marketing transformers would have generated less revenue because the storyline is weak and the acting is not what many expected from a michael bay blockbuster film.

its beyond seeing an action, take for instance films like sucker punch and priest, action movies, good directors and big budgets, it flopped, transformers is generating that revenue because of how popular the cartoon was, that garnered the initial interest, with bay directing it added more to it, throw in meghan fox a sex symbol and shia an upcoming young actor making waves in hollywood

however, the script/screenplay, the acting and the storyline bay decided to base the screenplay on was weak, so 55 million plus in marketing was needed to cover up the deficiencies in the screenplay and acting.

Fella... using industry speak doesn't make your case any more convincing.  The argument isn't whether Transformers would have made more or less money without marketing... that is an absolute red herring and tangential to the discussion.  The question is whether Transformers would have been successful without the marketing push... undoubtedly it would have been.  No matter how you measure "success" it comes down to profitability at the box office on the front end and on the back end DVD sales/rentals.  No amount of marketing will make a shitty movie successful.  No amount of marketing will make even a good movie successful.  At the end of the day it comes down to whether the public is interested in seeing the product you've created on the screen.

Case in point... there was tremendous hype and marketing behind Green Hornet, Thor, X-Men and Green Lantern, for example... including numerous tie-ins with consumer products, incessant commercials and movie trailers.  Yet all of them fell short of expectations.  X-Men is the only one coming close to being a success, yet compared to the other films in the series it's lagging in terms of profitability.  By comparison, the King's Speech has done fabulous at the box office with a minimal of "marketing"... illustrating the point that marketing isn't irrelevant to success, but neither is it a guarantor of success.  The quality of the product is what will cause fans to go talk to their friends and get them hype about the movie... and cause us to come to SW.net and rave about it, not no media or marketing campaign.  Nobody is going to watch Transformers for the acting... Michael Bay or no Michael Bay.  The Robots are the stars... always have been.

No amount of marketing will make a shitty movie successful. 

It would be interesting to see the breakdown of the average revenue/profit percentage split between the front end box office and back end sales/rentals. 

If the back end usually accounts for a significantly larger share I'd have to agree with this statement, otherwise you can argue the other way because I imagine alot of box office sales are based on marketing, promos (hype) and guessing on the part of the public...rather than the actual known quality of an product (because it's probably largely unknown at that stage...)

As stated earlier "hype" might account for good box office numbers opening weekend followed by a significant drop off in subsequent weekends... because by then the cat is out the bag.  Very rare does a movie that is both panned by critics and fans survive to enjoy subsequent success at the box office.  A rigid comparison to box office receipts relative to rentals/sales would be erroneous on a couple fronts, not the least of which being incursions into such profits on account of piracy and the overall decline in DVD sales/rentals the past 5 or so years.

Also watched an Australian film called "The Reef" which was similar to "Open Water". Good ole shark flick based on actual events, even though yuh know what going to happen it is still gripping drama.

Colombiana wasn't bad. They coulda work on the script a little bit though.

Expect Zoe to be in a higher quality movie.  But then this is probably a vehicle to launch her as a solo star.
Nice scene in the beginning where the schoolgir had to run from the Mafia. Doh want to say more to spoil it for yuh.

Rise of the Apes wasn't bad. They had to come up with a good reason as to why the Apes became so evolved. Now they have to link it to how the hell they end up with talking apes and guns on another planet.

If Zoe do a lesbo scene with Halle Berry - dat go sell out right dey.

Best scene in de whole movie, followed by a close 2nd wid de prison hit

There might be a miscomprehension here. The old one. Charlton Heston was inthe future Earth. And all the Ape movies were based on our Earth.

With Walbergh, he got lost on another planet - not Earth. When he got away, he landed on our Earth. But it was a society run by Apes. What freak him out was that the Abe Lincoln statue in Washington had an Ape with the same pose.

Well looks like I am partly wrong. Althought I am sure in the Walberg version he landed on planet that wasn't earth. Turns out Ris of the Apes is a reboot, not a sequel. However, you'll notice that a rocket was lost in Space i Rise - so that should pave the way for a sequel.

Apparently, although Walberg's movie was successful, the director - Tim Burton didn't wish to do a sequel.
They coulda just blank he ass nad use another director.

The Planet of The Apes series is the definition of creators “making it up as they go along”.

You are right about the Wahlberg movie, the final scene was just to put a shock in there to match the iconic original movie but there is no way for them to really hold on to that final scene and reconcile it in a sequel.

You are also right about the first series. It was all based on our earth and it had a time paradox where the intelligent Apes of the future, travelling back to the past, were instrumental in the events that led to the eventual fall of man.

wahlberg travelled to earth in the future when he went through the wormhole, cesar's father i believe was hiding the truth about what humans were in the past, wahlberg left again, thinking he could go back to the past, instead he journeyed into the future where apes were much more advanced and ruled the earth

the heston version was almost the same scenario

Saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes last night.
giving it a cool 6 out of 10.
Lovely Frieda Pinto needed more lines instead of those sound bites. She's a vet for pete's sake, surely she had more input in this animal story? Lithgow was his inimitable self. The neighbour had a corbeau peeing on him all through the movie. Franco needs acting lessons for his face.
Was that Malfoy as the zoo keeper's son?
Ending was dotish as hell.
All Hail Caesar.

All Hail Caesar.

Saw it last night as well... I'd rate it much higher, like an 8.  Much better than I expected.  Freida Pinto is lovely to look at, but that's about it.  Even with her minimal lines I heard her Bollywood accent peeking thru... in addition to her not having a very substantial role in the movie, I imagine that this was a consideration in minimizing her lines. 

I'm curious to know what effect ALZ-13 has on humans... although I have a very good idea.
Probably my favorite part was where Ceasar spoke for the first time... powerful.

Liked the little nods to the original movies: the "filthy ape" line, the statue of Liberty that Caesar plays with, the Jeep Waggoneer that Franco drives (from "Escape from the Planet of the Apes") etc.

Ending was fine for me... sets up the sequel brilliantly if they so desire.


p.s. yeah, that was Malfoy as the son of the shelter owner.  The owner himself is played by Brian Cox, another brilliant British character actor.  Most would know him as Col. Stryker in X2, few might remember him from Spike Lee's "The 25th Hour", one of my all-time favorite movies.  Even fewer will know him for having initiated the role of "Hannibal Lechter" in a 1986 movie called "Manhunter", the first treatment of Thomas Harris' most famous character, later remade as "Red Dragon"... another of my all-time favorite movies.  Reading between the lines, one can tell I'm a big Edward Norton fan ("25th Hour" and "Red Dragon").


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also saw Don't Be Afraid of the Dark which was decent... the humans in the movie were even more dotish than the child, but all in all it wasn't bad.  Nice twist on a traditional fairy tale character... I figured early on in the movie that this is where they were going but ah wasn't sure. 

Guillermo Del Toro directed... one of my favorite directors, he did "Blade II".  He also wrote and directed "Pan's Labyrinth" and "The Devil's Backbone" two more on my list of my all-time favorites.

I'm not a fan of Katie Holmes... even less so after she married Tom Cruise... but dang she looked good in that movie.


Also saw "Captain America" and was very pleasantly surprised.  I really wasn't expecting much from this movie at all, yet it was brilliantly executed, they did a great job of not taking themselves too serious.  The storyline worked very well and the action scenes were well scripted and executed.  I loved that they went the extra mile to not demonize all Germans, just the Nazis... as well as to make the cast ethnically inclusive, even if that meant blurring reality a little.

What's wrong with the Bollywood accent though? I was reading elsewhere where people were upset that our Miss Universe candidate didn't have an authentic accent.
ah well..it didn't bother me.
The end asked too much from me though. The apes just killed countless police and trashed places and Franko is saying "hey come home I'll protect you." An ape just talked to you and you barely register a raised eyebrow? People going about their business, nothing is said about the fact that hundreds of apes now own the park across the harbour. Dude dons his pilot suit and gets onboard dripping blood.
yes it sets up the series but not brilliantly at all - rather disingenuously and at the expense of a solid ending to the first of a series. Roddy McDowell would be incensed...lol
Recognized the zookeeper from X2 but I'm too much of a wuss to have seen those other movies.
Malfoy has stereotyped himself into an unlikeable sort - whether blue blooded wizard or red necked hick...yick.

Nothing at all wrong with the accent, but it may have necessitated a rewriting of "Caroline's" character.  I'm not sure what her background was supposed to be, but I'm pretty sure she wasn't intended as an Indian immigrant.  Which calls into question how the casting call was done and a decision made without consideration of her accent (if my hunch is correct that her accent is prominent), and if that indeed were the case, why they didn't simply amend the script to suit.

There were plenty holes in the script for me... particularly the ending.  I won't get into too much detail as to spoil it for those who haven't seen the film, but two:

- how Jacobs escaped from GenSus is beyond me, let alone to have him climb fairly comfortably into the helicopter waiting.

- not sure why the police stopped shooting as the apes charged on the bridge (caesar's "charge")

- there are others that just escape me right now.

Franco's character is that of a nurturer, perhaps scripted too stereotypically so, but it is what it is.  He was naive in thinking he could get the horses back in the barn, agreed.  As for Caesar speaking to him without much of a reaction, the way I see it is that he spent the better part of 5-10 years being constantly amazed by this chimp... the liberation of the other apes, Caesar's charge of the not-so-light brigade... at that point I think to have him react with shock mighta been a bit disingenuous.  Only thing that really 'bothered' me about that ending was... apes just upset the evolutionary order and about to plant the seed for displacing mankind... and they flee San Francisco for... Muir Woods??  It's not literally right across the bay as portrayed in the movie, but it's a 10-minute drive from San Francisco... hardly a refuge from mankind's pursuit.

Not a perfect setup, could have been neater... but I still think it was brilliantly done.

Watch Thor on Blu Ray after seeing it 3D in the theater. BIG improvement. Opt for HD if you can cuz it looks spectacular. I originally thought Captain America was better, but now I have to think about it.

I tink that scene from Due Date was in the trailer yes...

Just watch Thor de other day... it was decent, nutten to write home about doh.

Not sure if anyone post about it yet... but "Hereafter" is a boss movie... about three parallel stories, and how death affects each of the protagonists.  Powerful.

Produced and Directed by Clint Eastwood.

Thoroughly enjoyed it.

I was in Thailand at the time and being a bit out of the mainstream had no idea what this movie was about. In fact just saw the names of the film and had a minute to decide what to see. No idea who the stars were. Chose it because it was Eng. When they started to speak French at the beginning I freaked.

Long story short, I thoroughly agree with Bakes, good movie. Don't want to talk too much about it becz I may spoil it for others who are yet to see it.

Due date was a boss flick. I real laugh with this.

IF anyone enjoy due date I think you will like Hall Pass . Owen Wilson was a blast in this I think.

Hereafter with Matt Damon I just couldn't get it and find it real dead to put it mildly.
 

Yea Hall Pass the definitely worth watching, especially if you're into comedy and giving fake chow's lol

Co-sign. I eh need to see the best scenes in the trailer. Just some interesting ones. You could suggest what is going to happen as opposed to showing it.

As I said before Marvel vs DC sound like shit. And doubt they would agree to do that. Way too much good source comic material to venture down that road. Where you hearing those rumours?

for comic book fans they will always be excited to see their childhood comic heroes in a feature film, especially with the advancement of special effects & graphics in movies now.

marvel will not use the best trailer, it will reveal too much, keep it simple and keep as much as a teaser as possible, let the fans keep thinking and talking

i understand the sentiment of people wanting to see childhood icons on the big screen. same way many enjoyed the lord of the rings trilogy or the chronicles of narnia. but the content of the trailer itself is not exceptional outside of that. the fact that it utilizes characters already proven to have happymeal cache brings out the cynic in me.

I also find the trailer have nothing to it. Exciting to know that they bringing the characters to screen but they done promote the hell out of that and all the characters appear in recent movies already so it ent nothing to see them in these short clips.

Also Marcos is right a Marvel vs DC will be a hot mess. One thing does kill these superhero franchises is character bloat. Every bad sequel (spider-man 3, Batman and Robin, X3) has an increase in villains or heroes. Avengers already in danger of that since it is kind of a sequel to IM, Captain America, Thor, Hulk and the cast relatively big.

Even IM which was the big success that make all the following ones possible had a piss poor sequel in IM2. No surprise there were 2 heroes and 2 antagonists.

Marvel vs DC would never happen but if it did the only way it would work is with one or two characters like Batman and Captain America, not an emsemble.

Also if you guys want to see a really good representation of the Avengers check out the 1st season of Avengers:Earth's Mightiest Heroes. It should be on Netflix.

The subjectivity of this statement notwithstanding, this couldn't be any further from the truth.  Iron Man 2 was both a critical and box office success.  The critical reception and cost-to-profit ratio wasn't as impressive as the first one, but calling it "piss poor" is a gross exaggeration.

As for the trailer... it arrite, all the elements to get man ah li'l hype, but I was hype off the GI Joe: Rise of Cobra trailer and that  turn out to be utter bunk.  So we'll see. I must say... as I said a couple weeks ago, I was very pleasantly surprised by Captain America, and Thor, while not spectacular, was decent in its own right.  Not sure what that bodes for this movie though.

I admit that it was a very biased statement and that everybody else like it. I just think it was a huge drop off from IM. I would put it in X3 and Spider-man 3 category. I just think about it and remember that the black Widow was in it too so it is even a better example of useless character bloat in a sequel.

Also to me GI Joe look like tata from the trailer so I was able to watch it with zero expectations.

Agreed that Iron Man 2 didn't live up to the hype of the first... expected War Machine to play a bigger role, and coulda do with less camp and wisecracks.  Spiderman 3 same... I think the worst part of that movie was him wearing all black and dancing in the club that night... utter nonsense.  GI Joe was supposed to be the first of the S.H.I.E.L.D spin-offs following Iron Man, and the action sequels with Cobra bringing down the Eiffel Tower, and the motorbike chase... well, that was probably the two best scenes in the whole movie.

yeah, kilmer real nail dat role.

my guilty pleasure: the quick and the dead. sharon stone real look good in dat one and leo di caprio was good. of course eastwood's the unforgiven was fantastic. ah haven't seen the remakes of 3:10 to yuma or true grit yet. thing is them old westerns had some real racism going on and hollywood get all liberal, so dey have to tread lightly with de remakes.

The Quick and the Dead was decent man... but I eh know what all de hype was about Unforgiven. I remember seeing it in the movie theatre and thinking it was a bit anticlimactic. Maybe I have to look at it again.

Ribbit,

you and I on the same page bro. I have almost nothing to add.

I have to say of the contemporary westerns, Unforgiven is the best for me. It gave you the feel of the West and not that of a glossy movie. And what a fkng cast.

Quick and the Dead was also pretty good.

3:10 to Yuma  and True Grit (remake) also pretty good.  But I have to say that by far and away the best was Unforgiven.
Never really understood why the series Deadwood was cancelled. Won enough awards.

Both Wyatt Earp movies were good. Thought that the Kevin Costner one was better. But the rold Val Kilmer played was amazing. Thought he should've won and Oscar for that. Never really noticed how brilliant he was until that role. It was becz of that performance I became a Kilmer fan. Unfortunatley he put on weight and his career kind of fizzled a bit. Pity, a really fine actor.

I planning on seeing Tattoo next week too. Let's compare notes.

Fer sherr...   ;D

Ah suppose to take it in on Friday.

Saw Girl with Dragon Tattoo and MI4 (IMAX) back to back.

Two movies that kept me at the edge of my seat using two different styles.

Tattoo was great, not excellent. I found having read the book before I saw version #1 helpful as some details in version #1 were not explained. Version 2 did a better job in this regard. Many details were included such as the relationship between Mikael and Erika and Mikael and Lisbeth. I like how the flashbacks worked to explain what happened the day Harriet disappeared. Version 2 was weak in showing the downfall of Wennerstrom though. Version 1 and version 2 each stand on their own as two great movies.  Both very enjoyable.

Watching MI4 in IMAX was fun. Lots of excitement.  Enjoyed that film for entirely different reasons.  So that's pretty much fill up my big screen quota for the next 6 months.

Don't know if it was mentioned in here before, and I might be rhell late to de dance..

But i watching a series here called Breaking Bad which have me hooked. Now about halfway through season 3 with one more season to go after and i can't get enough.

Series is about a high school chemistry teacher who found out he had cancer and decide to start making crystal meth. And is bacchanal after bacchanal.

What impresses me the most is the quality of the acting in the series, from the main character Walter White, to the wife.. Pretty much everyone in the show on top of their acting game.

Check out the imdb link here:  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0903747/

I liked it.  Take it in last night with company who had never read the book nor seen the 2009 original.  Surprisingly, she thought it started fast and ended too slow.  I guess because at the start she head was swimming with trying to keep up with the Vanger clan's members and with the frequent flashbacks.  I on the other hand worried she mighta pan it due to the fact that there was so much development of the back story and little action at the start... followed by a hastily-done wrap up at the end.

I was very impressed by how Rooney Mara was able to approximate Noomi Rapace's mannerisms in this movie.  Not sure if it was intentional or not, but going into the movie I was a huge skeptic... but she was excellent.  I thought the original handled the rape scene (and revenge scene) better.  Thought Martin's end, and Wennerstrom's downfall was handled better in the original as well.

Rooney Mara was a beast though, I eh go lie.


I bracing MI4... not a fan of Tom Cruise and having less and less success envisioning him as an action star.  I can't even remember MI3... that's how much of an impression it made on me.

I took in the Immortals in 3d

It on par with 300, if not better in terms of effects, but the story so-so.

I enjoyed it...there was a traitor just like 300, who was the recipient of a "buss eggs"...when I tell you that was dread...the whole cinema cringe and bawl out for the man.

I was looking for more excitement in the end from the Titans...but they wanted to stretch a sequel so its understandable.

See it in 3d...the effects add to the umph of the show.

Looks like Sony is going ahead with the next film with Mara and Craig even though they only raked in $60 million in NA and $12 million in other markets to date. Production budget was $90 million. But Sony says they are on track for >$100 million in box office receipts.

Serves them right... should leave well enough alone.  There are already Swedish versions of Fire and Hornet's Nest as well... no need to reinvent the wheel.  Although I surprise it didn't do better myself.  Nutten else Larsen estate will make a mint.  Just from me alone they get ah e-book purchase of the trilogy this past weekend... since ah never read them before.  Netflix getting stream too.

there are tax incentives and credits in the uk, sweden and germany that will help them recover a good portion of the production budget... so to this point i can safely say they made money, not the mega bucks as anticipated but they made a profit to this point, in fact I would go as far as saying they are laughing to the bank bc of intl distribution rights sold for this film prior to the release.

they did not spend enough on marketing and promo, which is why the film grossed less than expected, im not surprised that sony will do the remaining sequels

I remember TI asking what I thought about the first one and I never got a chance to reply. Basically I thought it was an average movie just not Sherlock Holmes. Way too much physicality for the character. The preview for this one look even less like a Sherlock Holmes story. Plenty slow motion running and big explosions.

Yuh real late but yuh still earlier than me. I watching these 3 seasons for months now on netflix and I don't want to start it because I know I can't finish it.

Same reason I staying away from Boardwalk Empire and Homeland despite the fact that I know is good stuff. Also the reason I have the complete unwatched collection of The Wire and I never bothered to start with Lost. This new brand of big budget serial TV fiction is a time killer.

I watching Idris Elba  in the BBC series Luther right now and enjoying it. A very manageable 10 episodes over two seasons.

Open Range is a good modern western.  Kevin Costner and Robert Duvall.

Thanks, I obviously missed out on this. Will try to check it out this week.

Yes Peong. I checked it out. Good movie.

Another highly recommended one which I totally forgot to mention is Apaloosa starring and directed by Ed Harris. co starring Vigo Mortenson, Rene Zellweger  and Jeremy Irons.

I just discovered another one whilst on holiday in Bali. Seraphim Falls - 2007, starring Pierce Brosnan and Liam Neeson .

The opening tne minutes where one is chasing the other through the snowy mountains is rivetting.

I still haven't found a modern western to match the Leone movies though. Once Upon A Time In The West might be the greatest western ever made. Maybe my standards are too high? Maybe Leone just spoiled me.

I read a poll once of the greatest westerns ever and this was considered number one. Good stars but I found it a bit anticlimatic. There seemed to be a lot of proacastinating and a lot of "gallerying" during the movie. Probably that was considered cool in the 60s but I found it a bit stale. And like a lot of Italian Westerns music and gun shots was overloud.

Now Rio Bravo with John Wayne, Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson that was a true classic. Great characters who played off each other.

Yeah, that is a movie people either find the pacing perfect, or too slow. The score was written before filming began, and the music sets the pace. Also Leone says he was interested in the rituals leading to violence, more than the violence itself, hence the gallerying.

I find it hard to watch John Wayne movies, though, that fella couldn't act he way out of a paper bag.

The season 4 finale was simply breathtaking to the point where a day later i still thinking about the scene that play off there. There are entire sites, blogs and youtube videos dedicated to discussing the serious heights that play off there.

Cannot wait for season 5. Apparently it will be the final season, 16 episodes long.

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark... not sure if I discuss it/it was discussed here already, but I saw these two around the same time so they tend to go hand in hand in my mind.  It was decent... an interesting take on the tooth fairy and some genuinely painful scenes, lol

Have a bag full of movies for alyuh as I haven't posted in awhile. i'll give a star for level of interest. 1 being lowest and 5 highest.

Sniper Reloaded - Okay for the hour. Decent to pass some dead time(doh waste your money on buying this) 2.9 Stars

Swat: Fire Flight - Same as above 3.0 Stars

Eagle - good flick for the gladiator type viewer.3.5 Stars

Transformers: Dark Of The Moon - Some level of enetertainment made no sense to the interlectually minded. I was neither here nor there on this one. I think that should be the end of any thought of another Transformer movie. It ran its course 2.8 Stars

X-Men: First Class - I enjoyed seeing this and all the scenarios and making of the different characters of Magneto and Xavier. 3.5 Stars

Lincoln's Lawyer -  Good Directing. 3.5 Stars

Captain America - Other than the visuals(due to Bluray quality) and a little humour here and there I did not really see anything to hype about. Still decent though. 3.0 Stars

The Kings Speech - I enjoyed this even though it was a little slow. Good movie altogether. 3.5 Stars

Black Swan - A little dull but still wasn't bad. 3.0 Stars

Quarantine 2: Terminal - 3.0 Stars

Green Lantern - Nothing much in there to say other than the picture quality did look good(Due to Bluray). Another Avenger prlude. 3.2 Stars

Contagion - Not bad. For those germ Phobics, I would suggest do not watch. Make you think about all those public doors ways that you have to touch when moving around. 3.5 Stars

Hangover 2 - Got a few laughs in this one but was really an unnecessary sequel. Some of the scenes were like dejaveau because they happened in the first Hangover. Still entertaining though. 3.5 Stars

Warrior - One of these movies where you just root for the lead character no matter how wrong he seem to get things. Entertainment from start to end. 4.5 Stars

Real Steal - Loved this. Total entertainment and good story that will totally have you wanting more. 5 Stars

Black Belt - This was my sleeper movie Because I rented this with some apprehension, boy was i wrong. The characters in this was two ah de baddest men nothing beating them. Lacked a bit as the fight scenes was good but they just left you saying I could see a bit more licks. ;D  4 Stars

IP Man 2 - for anyone who've seen the fist IP Man this is as good or even better. Real licks pass in this. Totally entertaining from  start to end and ontop my list of best movies of all time. 5 Stars

Cowboys vs Aliens - for some people they didn't enjoy this but I thought it was well done as I enjoyed this alot. Sound effects were fantastic, loved it. 4 stars

Super 8 : This supposedly was a kids movie untill I began hearing profanity on two or three instances. The kids were excited to see this but were prevented in the end(my Wife and I usually watch a movie first to make sure the content is suitable for the children). I didn't really enjoy it much but loved the Train wreck as my sound system went into full turbulence mode for this. I think it may be worth a watch for some. I give it a 3.7 for story line and the sound effects

Took in Safe House with Denzel Washington last week...

Decent CIA thriller with some good action throughout. Not really a big fan of the lead actor Ryan Reynolds, especially for a serious kinda flick like this but Denzil was Denzil.

I find alot of the fight scenes was borrowed straight out of Bourne Identity in terms of the fighting styles, sequences and sound effects.

Good flick though.

Yeah, went and take it in about a month ago.

I real enjoy it. I mean it was understandably low budget, and they were some slow parts in between where you could see they was stretching it to make up the hour. But all in all it had some hilarious moments in it that had the cinema going.

If they could tighten up the production a lil bit and focus more on the hilarious exchanges that the original clips are famous for, i seriously believe he could have an all time great local production on his hands.

Saw the creator Roger Alexis in the mall last week and told him he need to do a Pastor Stewart movie... Seriously, Santana good but I could watch a whole hour of Pastor Stewart.. He is a classic.

VB

stepping into the ring with a good boxer is like playing tag with a human jackhammer. they can hit harder than a typical wing chun stylist, have greater punching accuracy, more stamina, and can take a punch a lot better. even the slight difference in stance and style between a boxer and kickboxer would give advantage to a boxer, depending on rules. all things being equal a decent muay thai fighter would beat most stand up martial artists, boxers or kickboxers of similar calibre in a standard ring under continuous action. in a bigger space under point style rules or under no rules a martial artist has an edge IMO due to cleaner technique and speed.

Wrath of the Titans.. bare shite, as de Bajans would say. Once more the demi-monsters steal the show with the über-monster being some overly cooked up giant behemoth who's too big or too slow to really be effective against the Perseus-Pegasus pairing.  Not really hard to out-manoeuvre a beast moving in slow-mo.  The underwhelming effect is further underscored when said beast ends up going out like a bitch... you almost want to ask yuhself "I mean really?  How you survive so long if it was so easy to kill yuh?" 

Immortals told a very similar story to Wrath, but did it in a much more convincing manner.  Freida Pinto is such great eye-candy.  No setta overly done special effects... but the fight scenes is real boss.  Storyline not too bad either.

The Hunger Games... steups.  Not bad, but largely unfulfilled potential.  Speaking of potential, I need to find out how old this Katniss Everdeen character supposed tuh be before I admit to some of de thoughts that was running thru my mind... as she was running arung in de bush in dem tight pants.  I mainly went as a way to "support" a friend and former classmate of mine who had a small role, and for the most part I don't regret it, but it definitely not worth the hype.

Yeah I pay fuh 3-D too... and was more interested in mih popcorn halfway thru.  The first one was ah let down so ah really wasn't surprised, but the sheer fact that they had the audacity to make a sequel... ah figure they woulda get this one right.  The special effects was boss... and with the 3-D they had mih flinching a couple times from shit flying on de screen, lol. 

But Kronos was ah disappointment.  I mean, I understand where they got their inspiration from, but nah... they have to come better than dat.  Even de Minotaur fail... not even Immortals got that one right I tort... although the Minotaur in Immortals pelt real blows.  Hephaestus is supposed to be a Titan too, yet he went out real weak against Ares.

Another thing, when Perseus went to meet with Andromeda, she and she army was massed on the battlefield, either fighting or preparing to fight.  Yet... come to find out is Kronos they was getting ready to battle... how they know about Kronos? lol  At that point nobody but Perseus and he crew did know what was going on under Tartarus.  Emblematic of the weak script.

Sniper reloaded. Complete SH&T. Do not watch this movie.

The Double with Richard Gere. Good film. Just when you think you have it figured out, they hit you a little surprise at the end. Gere can still make good films.

Eastbound makes fun of the dude and his mullet.  A lot of recognizable actors in small roles in it.  Will Ferrell, Don Johnson, Matthew Mcona-whatever, Craig Robinson, Jason Sudekis.  The humour is way over the top, I can't stress this enough.  It's not for everybody, but if it's your thing, it's great.

I was killing some time infront of the tv and the other ppl in the room were watching Shaft, starring Samuel L Jackson.

For those who have seen the movie, there's a scene where he goes to pick up a girl at her house and the bad guys come to kill her. Shaft has to shoot his way out of the house.

There's a sort of rasta guy waiting for him in the car (Busta Rhymes) With shots flyin Busta lookin for he gun and cussin  bcz he cah find it, as he looking around the car, I had to laugh when I see the car keys in the ignitions with a TT flag on it.  :)

In preparation for the upcoming Prometheus, I started rewatching the Alien movies.  The first one was so good eh, 1979 and they pull off a sci-fi masterpiece.

BTW it looks like it's the same alien ship or at least same type of ship in both movies.

Alien is a hell of a movie. Can't remember what the Alien ship looked like though.

Watching the Prometheus trailer it remind me of the backstory to Dead Space, an adventure/horror videogame. The dead space backstory has similar elements to Prometheus with humans finding ancient Alien glyphs on earth then leaving for space. But the real similarity is in the space ships. The design was very similar to Alien with cramped spaces and an industrial look and feel to the human ship.

Here is a "Prometheus" trailer using footage from the Dead Space movies

I thought it possible that the movie could fail to deliver on the hype and expectation given the the cookie-cutter early trailers. It definitely delivered on the promise of the trailer and got good critical reviews. The money it made is a different issue altogether.

I saw it and thought it was good, not spectacular but I am going back to watch it again and I probably will buy it when it comes to disc. Very similar to the last Transformers (in several ways) the movie was good eye candy, near perfect action design, effects and choreography and a good mix of humour with the action.

I think if you are a big fan of the comic books there are some real sour points but it is nothing unique to this Marvel movie, it is just really emphasized here. But I kinda give up on wanting movies to have a high fidelity to comic book sources. They often don’t have fidelity to other books and plays that they adapt to screen either. I don’t bitch about the LoTR not being faithful to the books, having not read them, so I really can’t bitch about comic book movies doing the same.

You warned Avengers fans to beware of being disappointed, the box office success and early reviews suggests that your concern may have been unnecessary.  Performance at the box office is the only sign of success or failure that really matters.  Fans of the genre could pan or rave about a movie but at the end of the day money is what's required to make a movie and money determines whether it spawns any sequels.

I didn't get into the money thing because I wasn't in doubt about whether the movie would be a financial success, that was always going to happen. The concern I expressed was a different one, that it could have easily been a disappointing experience for fans.

I normally look at performance at the box office after the first week as a better indicator compared to gross profit... The hype and glitz could have a blockbuster film rack up record numbers in the first week, but if its a disappointing experience for fans, it normally tapers out fast over the following weeks as the word gets around..

Went and take in the Avengers in iMax last night and it was BOSS!!!

Really impressed.. Even moreso than some of the recent big ones like Transformers and Inception because while i thought those movies were great, something about the Avengers have me feeling like I could go back and take it in again... And i've heard that from a number of people as well, so i'm sure this have plenty legs to run.

Hulk take absolute WIN in the movie. I feel like they redeemed that franchise completely cause i never really rate any of dem Hulk movies.

But yeah, movie was bess, Avengers is ah must.

The Avengers numbers were truly spectacular and it did something unique as far momentum. The Friday numbers were behind the Hunger games and Harry Potter yet by Sunday it blew away every other film by a significant margin. That means that it had great word of mouth and great repeat business on the opening weekend.

warner bros are in development for wonder woman, flash and a reboot of green lantern, those need to be done before we see justice league

saw avengers last night and it was average, downey and ruffalo stood out while the plot was predictable

the cbm (comic book movie ) of the summer will be dark knight rises, whedon has a way to go to reach nolan's caliber

also, hawkeye, black widow, iron man and thor were not iconic, captain america and hulk were really the only iconic characters and downey is the reason iron man has been so great with the help of cgi

Yeah I thought this was the best of the four. The end was cartoonish and it had too much Tom Cruise running (as usual) but the heist was classic MI. Much, much better than the 2nd and third ones.

Avengers is well worth whatever hype out there about the film... I took moms to see it and she was asleep within half an hour LOL

but nah, that was more de "itis" than anything, we went to dinner for Mothers Day right before. She wake up and thorougly enjoyed it. to my surprise she also knew most of the characters (moms is 73 and was never into comics).

My take on it is that it's an excellent movie... absolutely worth the hype. One pardna of mine called it the best superhero movie ever and I look at him sideways. I have to say, having seen it now I completely agree. The Dark Knight might have something to say about that... but Avengers come real good.  Hulk is a facking beast!!

I make no guarantees... but I would be really surprised if folks didn't like it. The storyline is always secondary in these action movies, but in this case it was credible and well-developed. The one knock I would make is that to an extent you kinda have to see "Thor" to really pick up the backstory because they don't really explain it. The gist of it though (and this is not a spoiler for me to say it) is that Thor and Loki are brothers, and that Loki tired of playing second fiddle in the Asgardian band and decide to act out in "Thor" by unleashing hell on Earth.

Avengers kinda pick up the story from there... and if you go see it that should help you understand the storyline better.

The character development is also excellent, I love the natural affiliations and antipathy that form among them... as with 'humans' in the real world, you'll like some people and not like others... even in the midst of adversity. That was a nice touch.

Lawd... and action galore fuh de comic geeks like me. It was a special thrill for me to see my two favorite superheroes growing up, Iron Man and Thor, in action... in the same movie. Bess flick!

Watched Avengers last night with my lady...I was like a big ass kid, all excited and wanted to point out key moments in the movie to her, but I had to keep meh kool, so I won't look like a child lol...although I think she likes that sometimes....Anyway..That movie was BOSSSS..Hulk was a beast and had me cracking up..I won't spoil it for those who have not seen it. I watched it in the IMAX 3D version and was very impressed. This was my first IMAX experience. I never really wanted to spend extra for a movie that I thought would be the same except for 3D effects, which was not a big deal to me, but this IMAX 3D thing made me feel like I was there at times. They put us inside of a car a couple of times, and that was very impressive the way they brought the audience into the movie and made us apart of the chaos during the fight scenes at the end. Did anyone notice that? Superhero movies are always kool, but never really live up to my expectations, but this one was very good and I would have to give it a 9 out of 10 in Superhero ratings. For those who have not seen it, I suggest you wait till the end of the credits to see a sequel teaser.

Avengers is well worth whatever hype out there about the film... I took moms to see it and she was asleep within half an hour LOL

but nah, that was more de "itis" than anything, we went to dinner for Mothers Day right before. She wake up and thorougly enjoyed it. to my surprise she also knew most of the characters (moms is 73 and was never into comics).

My take on it is that it's an excellent movie... absolutely worth the hype. One pardna of mine called it the best superhero movie ever and I look at him sideways. I have to say, having seen it now I completely agree. The Dark Knight might have something to say about that... but Avengers come real good.  Hulk is a facking beast!!

I make no guarantees... but I would be really surprised if folks didn't like it. The storyline is always secondary in these action movies, but in this case it was credible and well-developed. The one knock I would make is that to an extent you kinda have to see "Thor" to really pick up the backstory because they don't really explain it. The gist of it though (and this is not a spoiler for me to say it) is that Thor and Loki are brothers, and that Loki tired of playing second fiddle in the Asgardian band and decide to act out in "Thor" by unleashing hell on Earth.

I like Downey, Jr. too and love his interpretation of Sherlock Holmes.  My gripe with him is that he and Favreau seem to believe he must play Tony Stark the same exact way, and for me it eh really working.  It was arrite in the first Iron Man, but kinda overbearing by the time the second one reach.

Well that was the best part of the movie for me I nearly dead......other than that, :thinking: :thinking: I doh know, maybe I like mih story with good solid plot lines because after a while I got tired of these beings beating each other and ah keep waiting for the inevitable i.e. the avengers would prevail.  It was just soooooo predictable.

Now I watched it in IMAX 3D and the graphics and special effects are so alive that I enjoyed.  A god example of that is at the end when the creature (dem thing real friggin ugly) was in outer space lamenting how hard it is to beat humans I felt like I was really in outer space with the creature.  But again the thing predictable, at the end it was just so obvious that see that there will be an Avengers Part 2...... ::) ::) 

If so, I'll pass......

Alright, so I deliberately didn't read any of the comments on the before I went to see it.  I now realise that since I wasn't no big comic geek growing up dais why I was kinda "bleh" watching the movie.  My superheroes growing up were Spiderman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman (and Robin anybody remember dem ole episodes from the 60's??).......hhhhhmmm who else.......when X-men came along ah was big into that too.....so I eh really no fan of that group in the Avengers and doh know dey background.....perhaps dais why the really only impressive thing for me was the IMAX experience.....

This was the biggest of the problems that I had with the Avengers. One of the things that make it a good but not great great experience for me was constantly having to remind myself that this was supposed to be Iron-Man.

RDJ portrayal of Iron-Man is not the Iron-Man in the books. There were hints of this Downey-ness in the first movie, specifically the final scene with the “I am Iron-Man” reveal. That was a real sour note but overall the movie was good.

The second was all about that obnoxious, lovable  rogue BS, from the cheerleaders, to the Senate committee hearing, to the snarky one-upmanship with Justin Hammer.

This movie turned out to be more of the same. Whereas in the books Iron-man was actually a very straight character, the group organizer, rule-setter and planner for the Avengers, here they had him as this anti-authority, too cool for school, wise-cracking, arrogant hipster. I had to pull back  and just enjoy the visuals, the action and the humour and ignore plot and characterization.

The best superhero movie of all time for me is still Superman The Movie and I was not a big Superman fan growing up. They did so many things right in that movie casting, characters, score, theme. They didn't change the costume too much or feel bad about putting him in high boots, tights and jockey-shorts, and cape like they do with so many other movies. They also went with the idea of him hiding his secret identity with a pair of glasses without questioning its realism or practicality.

Right there with yuh. That movie kinda spoiled a lot of the superhero movies to follow, becz they were so on the nail with it.
I had to realize that not every movie and character could be so close.

I also like how they did the Clark Kent and superman look with just some glasses and a geek hairstyle and made it passable.

Another hero movie that was well done but apparently bombed somewhat was the Phantom in 1996. Phantom was the first thing I used to read when I picked up a Guardian, followed by Mandrake and Sports. That was my routine for years every morning  before I went to school.

Yeah agree with everything but especially the bolded.  As I told a friend elsewhere, this Iron Man is Pierce Brosnan's Bond... I prefer Daniel Craig.  Less wise-cracking, more edgy intellect... who could also kick some righteous ass when necessary.

http://digg.com/newsbar/topnews/paralyzed_woman_regains_use_of_her_legs_walks_out_of_battleship

Paralyzed woman walks out during a screening of Battleship.

A 54-year-old Phoenix woman, who has been paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair for the last 25 years, suddenly regained the use of her legs and walked out of Universal’s boxoffice flop "Battleship."

Upon hearing the news of Richards' miraculous recovery, faith healer Benny Hinn, well-known for his "Miracle Crusades" throughout the world, immediately announced he was abandoning prayer in favor of screening "Battleship" for his millions of disciples who can no longer walk.


After a paralyzed woman regained the use of her legs and walked out of "Battleship," infirmed disciples of evangelist Benny Hinn watch the movie during a "Miracle Crusade" in Kansas City, hoping for the same results.

Marlene Richards, who was paralyzed after a car crash 25 years ago, went to see director Peter Berg’s $200 million naval recruitment film, also known as "Battleship," after confusing it with what she thought was the latest installment of Michael Bay’s "Transformers" franchise.

"I kept waiting for Shia LeBeouf and Bumblebee, but the only thing I saw was the guy from 'John Carter,' " Richards told Hollywood & Swine. "That's when I knew something was wrong."

Richards tried to leave the theater, but her motorized wheelchair malfunctioned, leaving her stranded and forced to watch singer-turned-actress Rihanna attempt to act. That’s when she felt sensation in her legs for first time in over two decades. Moments later, she stood and walked out of the theater.

"It truly was a miracle," Richards said. "Otherwise I would've had to sit through another hour of that movie."

Also saw The Dictator... only because it was right next to the theater showing Think Like a Man... which I had a free ticket to.  Dictator was predictably shitty... hard to keep making ambush movies like Borat and Bruno so SBC try he hand ah a full-fledge movie.  I doh think they'll be repeating that debacle again any time soon.  I laugh once... maybe twice.

Think Like a Man was only marginally better... and largely due to that exquisite dollop of eye candy that is Meagan Good.... sweet Mary!  Steve Harvey pimp all dem black 'oman and dem into buying he book, next think yuh know movie geh make outta it.  Play on playa.

I just stay away from vampires in general.  Horror movies don't really do it for me and I don't even know what genre the recent stuff they've been making would be.  It would basically have to be Bram Stoker's original dracula with cape and fangs for me to watch no matter when it was made.

I swear they're not even trying anymore, seems they're just taking two ideas and mashing them together (Abraham Lincoln/Vampires, Nazis/Center of Earth, Cowboys/Aliens, etc.).  I now see "Snow White and the Huntsman" I don't know what the hell its supposed to be but it looks like crap.  Next will be "Bambi and the Flesh Eating Zombies" (in CGI) or something.

The regular Snow White story has a huntsman in it, that eh no mashup.

There's also Iron Sky (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1034314/), about Nazis on the moon.

I haven't seen that since I was like 5 so maybe I'm wrong on that but all of the other examples still stand (though the new Snow White still looks terrible).

take yuh time... its being adapted from a work of fiction that was on the new york times bestseller list.

open yuh mind... give it a try

Don't know how they could take a US President and fictionalize like this but the preview look ok.

Allyuh need to stop hating on Robert Downey's Ironman. I loved him.  :D

I loved the whole movie - even the Scarlett chick wasn't as annoying as I expected her to me.

Loki was a boss...Captain America...lol...I liked the new actor for Hulk - he did very well.

I also like the way he learnt to 'control' his episodes. "That's my secret Captain - I'm always angry." So he's created a new baseline for himself...kind of cool.

The actor who plays Loki - brilliant.

But I was marginally disappointed in Thor - they powered him down and for the comic people, can Captain America's shield really deflect Hammer?

Thor the movie was better... he really didn't get to shine in this one.

Captain America was also much better than expected in the movie... I had a hard time taking him too serious (because he was taking heself too damn serious) in Avenger.  How de hell he end up being de boss?  Because he name "Captain".  It mighta work in the comics, but in the movie Thor was the one who knew all about the invaders.. he was the natural choice to call the shots, not Steve-what-he-name.

Also, his shield made from "Vibranium" (from what I remember)... it deflects energy.  So yeah, even Mjolnir eh ready fuh dat.  Wha'm yuh went and watch it in de dollar theater or wha' how yuh take so long? lol

Snow White and the Huntsman looking boss.

It was shit.  I doh help that ah really can't stand that Kristen whatevershenameisfromtwilight chick.

Some may still like Snow White... who knows. If you liked watching 'Bella' run around the woods in those Twilight movies then you should be good... there's plenty of that here. She even reprises that whole damsel in distress role she's so good at, except instead of the pale guy with the fangs and nu-age pompadour, she gets to swoon into the arms of 'The God of Thunder'... except he's more 'god of blunder' in this movie.

There's even one scene where she says the Lord's Prayer... which I thought was bizarre, this being a pagan world filled with superstition and the 'dark arts' and all. And then she morphs into Joan of Arc, gives her best St. Crispin's Day speech imitation... and everything's all right with the world. Dim the lights, grab some popcorn and sip some poorly-constituted soda while you're reading this and it'll be just as if you're at the movies.

--------------------------------------------------------

Ah surprise given how men was anticipating that nobody talking about Prometheus though.  Boss movie. And I went in expecting to be disappointed. I think if anything this is a lesson in managing expectations. There were one or two eye-rolling moments, and a couple cliched "white people do dumb shit in horror movies" moment (no offense white people... I kid I kid)... but other than that it stayed true to the genre.

There was one key scene that was pivotal to the storyline and which sought to shore up Rapace's bonafides as a heroine, where the execution was lacking. It just defied belief... any woman who has had a "difficult" pregnancy would relate. Advances in science, medicine and technology aside, that was a pure GTFOH moment. The heroism part was great... we are left questioning not her grit or desire for self-preservation... but rather the sheer improbability of it all. Won't say anymore on that for those still intent on seeing it.

I think it would have been nice had they channeled some more of the "Alien" movies creepy, predatory atmosphere and sequences... but alas. btw... now that I think of it... why do the aliens need humans anyways? Incubators? Hardly, they seem to get along fine in our absence. Then there's that whole retractable inner jaw thing... it's not like they eat our flesh... scary as those mandibles might be. Seems they just like spearing us with their jaws and busting out of our stomachs Meh... kinda weak when you really think of it.

The ending left a lot to be desired, but again... I fully expected (having read the reviews) that there would be no nicely packaged endings here. For me it was all a matter of how they were going to set up the next movie... which I thought was done in an okay fashion. I would have liked to learn more about why we were "engineered" and why the engineers decided to turn on us... it's not like we stole their fire... *shrug*

Ah now come home after watching Prometheus in IMAX 3D and I real confused yes. I looking to scour the internet for some answers. In IMAX the movie have plenty eye candy and sci-fi porn with the details on the technology and widgets and doodads. I agree with yuh Bakes on that particular scene in the medical unit where I had to roll eh eyes and go with it - technology or not.

Overall I went in expecting more sci-fi horror and got more sci-fi philosophizing. Like I said I left the movie with plenty questions. Ah guess we will have to wait on the sequel.

The season 4 finale was simply breathtaking to the point where a day later i still thinking about the scene that play off there. There are entire sites, blogs and youtube videos dedicated to discussing the serious heights that play off there.

Cannot wait for season 5. Apparently it will be the final season, 16 episodes long.

season 5 starting in a few weeks with an 8-episode apertura and 8-episode clausura a few months after. dem writers will earn their keep for this last season; closing out a series is no easy thing eh.

Just watch "An Englishman Who Went up A Hill But Came Down A Mountain"... older flick, from early 2000's I believe... w/ Hugh Grant.  Decent English flick, nice quaint story about this town and a promontory that was surveyed and declared a "hill", and how the town tried to get the classification changed to a "mountain" because of what the history of such a designation meant and would mean going forward.  Real decent movie... weird as it may sound.

John Carter was very good, I thought it would be foolish but the story was good, with a nice final reveal. It had good actors, before watching it I didn't know who was in it beyond Gambit.  You could tell the princess spent some time in the gym.  ;D

Nah not in cinema, I "found" a copy online.   I wanted to see the fiery demons in battle. That scene looked cool but does not redeem the movie.

I also saw a kinda horror with Willem Dafoe called Antichrist.  Man that was a messed-up story.  It's a Lars von Trier movie, I know he has some other weird stuff out there.  Willem Dafoe's wife well f**k him up.  Would not watch again.

Some movies I saw recently:

Safe house: good action, decent suspense. Nice final kill scene, however the final scene with the woman was rubbish but at that point the movie was over.

Spiderman: Have the comics changed since I stopped reading them in the late 80s. Do they even TRY to get someone who looks a little like Peter Parker. WTF is the deal with PP's hair??? Dumb ass me I didn't realize one theatre had 3D and one didn't, guess which one I end up in. So cah talk about the 3D. However, the one good thing they got about this movie was that Peter was reasonably mild mannered but when he put on the suit he got extremely extroverted and was full of lyrics.

The Dictator: wait for DVD. Silly movie but a few good laughs here  and there.

A. Lincoln Vampire Hunter: contradictions re. the relations between vampires and how they turn people. Some unreal action scenes even by movie standards. But entertaining action.

War Horse: Great movie. Enjoyed it from beginning to end.

Dem is two classics... discussed them back near the start of the thread.  Just watched another Guy Ritchie (Producer) gem the other night "Mean Machine". Mighta been mentioned in this thread before, can't remember.  Basically, Vinnie Jones plays this footballer, former captain of the English MNT, implicated in throwing a game... and who burdened by that goes on a drunk driving spree.  He get lock up in a prison where the Warden... sorry, Governor... is a gambling addict.  The decide to play a game Cons vs. Guards.  'Nuff kicks, and some decent football too. Not exactly Escape to Victory... but good enough.

In addition to Vinnie Jones, couple other Ritchie regulars was in this one as well, including Jasaon Statham (in a Rene Higuita type role... hilarious), Jason Flemyng and Vas Blackwood.  Good flick.

That's true... was the Adam Sandler/Burt Reynolds character accused of throwing games?  Can't remember.

Yes, the team name was even the Mean Machine, must've just been a remake.

Exactly what it was, hence the name "Mean Machine."
The football (soccer) version.

Enjoyable flick.

The Dark Knight Rises ... boss movie. I have to rank it up there as one of the best "comic book super hero" movies if not the best to date.  :beermug:

The only downside was the audio. Some dialogue was unintelligible. Two much growly, raspy speech from Bane and Batman.

I think this Batman focussed more on story than effects. It was very good. Rare to see Batman looking so vulnerable.

Bane was a great character. The actor, Tom Hardy, co starred in a Star Trek movie years ago as they younger copy of Picard. It is unbelievable how this man has bulked up over the last decade.

The Pact, much better than I expected.  It's a horror about some missing women. Not sure what pact they talkin about though.
The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, pretty good and I never heard of it before IMDB suggested it to me.  Tommy Lee Jones is the main character.  It's about an illegal alien who got killed in the desert.  Good actors besides Jones too.

Anybody vibesing the new season of Breaking Bad?

This is the 5th and final season, but it is split between 8 episodes first half and 8 more episodes second half, 16 to come in all.

First 2 episodes was good... Mike moving like ah dread badman.. I interested to see the direction they take the series now that Gus out the picture. Interestingly enough, the first 2 episodes seem to be focusing on specific characters and we not seeing much of the other characters that had their own storylines going like Saul, Hank wife, Walt family etc.  I guess they still setting the stage.

The season 4 finale show me that Walt is ah sick individual. If i didn't see it i wouldn't ah believe he went to them lengths, and he still toting Jesse on a string.

Mike hadda jump back in because he realize after the meeting that if his fellahs doh see their money, they will cave in and sell him out and then he going down.. That is what went on with Mr. Chow and the other fellah that got sent for him.

But Mike expressions (or lack thereof) does kill me. He doh cater, the scene in the interrogation room was epic.

Only thing i struggling with is this having to wait every week for an episode. I really preferred to watch out a season back to back on my own timing.

Went and take in the Dark Knight Rises last night in Movietowne, 1030pm flick...

After hustling down there thinking i would be too late and have to fight up with crowd and end up in pit looking up 90 degrees, i was real surprised to find that the cinema was only about 1/4 full... I don't know if its that whole scene in the US that deter people or the late movie on a Thursday night, but for a movie this big i woulda thought it woulda been much more pressure like how it was with Avengers.

The movie as expected was boss.. Bane as a villain was excellent, in fact only marginally less dread than the Joker.. Nolan really carry us down to the depths of despair and hopelessness in this one, which I find was great. Agreed that some of the dialogue from Bane was inaudible with the raspiness.

Can't really say much more without being a spoiler.

Will be interesting to see where they take the Batman franchise given that this is the last in the trilogy.

Most likely they'll just reboot it again... new director, new character lead... new interpretation on the story. Will be real hard to top Nolan's trilogy though... I remember watching Batman Begins and being completely blown the %^&* away by the technical details, cinematography, Bale's acting... just a real nice storyline, visually stunning, great acting everything.

I remember being sceptical about Batman Begins until I took it in when it came out in cinema. I actually believed that I could be that hero. For me, Batman Begins was better than The Dark Knight. I've watched Batman Begins over 20 times and once it's on television I stop what I'm doing just to sit and watch it. Christopher Nolan is truly a gem of a director. Hope he also makes Superman into a trilogy.

Boss, you thinkin just like me. I think it was better than both prior Batman movies and the Avengers, and I say this having loved all three. I liek that Batman was the focus here. TDK, while great, was more of a "Joker featuring batman" movie. I thought this one had more dire consequences, which I liked and thought Bane was a scarier proposition than Joker (not a better villain, just scarier).

But both had me on the edge of my seat. Literally

Also saw The Rite... steups.  It arrite, but try as they might, nothing comes close to The Exorcist.  If satan heself coming then yuh'd expect some more fireworks man.

Yeah that was a boss flick. Tension right down to the bitter end.

If it has not been mentioned already allyuh should check out a film called Amores Perros (Love's a bitch). IMO Probably one of the best flims made anywhere in the last 15 or so years.

A next one many of ya'll probably done see already....Confederate States of America....was damn good. Its a historical documentary, comedy and reality TV rolled into one. Its about what America would be like today if the South had won the war and kept slavery legal. Big big flim.

yeah skyfall was good..
I saw the other day that a surf movie called Chasing Mavericks coming out..Russell crowe actually surfed maverick in the film and got the full experience of what happens when you wipeout there, legends have died there..
Even for those who don't like surfing should check out the film Riding Giants..great documentary and they discuss how mavericks was "discovered" and the deaths that happen there

Best Bond film I've seen in ages. They really come good.
The villain was boss. Don't be surprised if he gets an Oscar nomination.

Don't usually like D. Craig as Bond, but this film was so good, I even end up liking Craig.  :beermug: :beermug: :beermug:

Luther is a great BBC tv series, anyone who is into crime thrillers would love it

idris elba is stellar in it

good series.  Have they produced any new episodes?

the ending of this year, fall or early 2013, i believe 4, one hour episodes are planned, it ranked up there with the top 5 tv shows in britain, imo iys ts some of the best writing ive seen for a contemporary crime series and ive watched many..

Ahhh.  I just did a search. They are talking bout making the leap to big screen after the next season. Looking forward to season 3.

thats a movie i would pay to see, it would be great if they incorporate an element of US society as well to get the US audience, it deserves the attention of a wider audience

im also looking forward to the next season  :beermug:

Luther Season three begins

Tarantino too liberal with he use of the 'N-word'... in all his movies.  That and folks think slavery shouldn't be treated with in a casual manner. Even Spike Lee's cousin (director of The Best Man and Undercover Brother, and an acquaintance of mine) weigh in to say that he didn't think it was an issue. I dunno I might go see it still.

Django - go see it. Some superfluous scenes but overall, enjoyable if you are a Tarantino fan.

The "N" word was liberally sprinkled throughout the movie, but given the context, it worked.

Stay till the very end for a small bonus shot. It comes after the final credits play.
