watched on the weekend:

joan rivers: a piece of work. p coll!
dirty girl: cute movie. milla jovovich actually wasn't horrible.
the paperboy: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. best comedy of 2012. instant camp classic.
gatsby: horrible. the costumes & makeup & scenery were wonderful but the acting wasn't great, the modern music was jarring and it was fucking long.

We saw Gatsby last night. Going into it knowing that it was going to be over the top and creative liberties we're going to be taken, I really enjoyed it. Some parts were obviously campy but it did the job of entertaining.

I'm partial to the little known remake done in 2000 w Paul Rudd, for accuracy but this was pure entertainment and flash.

Watched guilt trip and that was a bad idea. Watched silver linings playbook which wasn't bad and the main actress is incredibly attractive. Same girl from the hunger games but she doesn't look 12. Also saw devil's in the details with ray liotta garbage movie. Saw a haunted house, the new wayans movie. Silly of course but some of the best jokes I've seen in a mocie in a while

Shallowed, did you finally watch The Big Lebowski, too?

Went to the Gatsby screening yesterday - meh, rather disappointing. I'm with pale_princess on this one, looked like several people even fell asleep.


Fruitvale Station, Ryan Coogler's first feature film, is just incredible.
In other words: WATCH IT.
Sadly the first trailer doesn't say anything at all about the movie.

don't bother. What a crapfest.

Caught up on the Evangelion theatrical releases because one of my coworkers mentioned the third one was out - all three really good, very excited for the fourth one. They manage to really twist the storyline up without losing any of the things that make Evangelion great. It almost made me not want to just clock Shini for being a whiny little bitch.

Watched Upstream Colour last night and really dug that too, I loved Primer so my expectations were pretty high but it definitely delivered. Carruth has a bright future ahead of him and if this doesn't get the same kind of recognition as Primer did i'll be very dissapointed.

Mama was definitely creepy and scary but as the film progressed and you got over exposed to the CGI and seeing more of Mama that went out the window. I also felt the ending was completely pointless. Mama could have achieved her aim within the first 10 minutes of the film.

My horror film of 2013 so far is the Maniac remake.

I finally got around to creating a Netflix account, just in time for the big Arrested Development viewing party tomorrow. It's not exactly legal here in Austria, but possible, thanks to the MediaHint plug-in and the fact that Netflix really wants my credit card information.
I instantly got hooked; the sheer number of films and TV shows is incredible. And of course my girlfriend and I started off with two bad ones.


48 Hrs. - D

Who thought giving Nick Nolte a leading role was a good idea, especially in Eddie Murphy's first flick? The plot was ridiculous, the performances abysmal, the humour embarrassing. Holy shit.

Saw Man of Steel. First half was dreary exposition, the second half a non-stop orgy of destruction. Zack Snyder is apparently the latest graduate of the Paul Greengrass School of Shaky Camera Work. Well-acted, but not much character development. Action and effects were cool. Too much blatant Christian symbolism. Negative points for propagating the false belief that overpasses are adequate protection from tornadoes. Enjoyed it a bit, but I expect more from the inevitable sequel.

as far as the movie goes i really liked it. couldn't stop laughing and there were a lot of moments that had me going "woah". this refers to the gory scenes. i thought they were tasteful and had the cool quick-cut effect that a b-grade movie would have, instead of a professional makeup and costume crew that would milk a decapitation shot for 3 minutes or more. as far as the history of film goes - terrible movie. but i liked it ok. jeremy renner plays a hilariously clueless drunk who keeps falling ass backwards into witches.

Saw World War Z.

The book, for those that don't know, is a Studs Terkel-esque novel that involves a guy going around the world interviewing people, both ordinary and political/military, about the socio-political ramifications of a zombie apocalypse about a decade after it is resolved. It is smart, exciting and a fresh take on the genre, which, let's face it, has been done to death. It's a book that doesn't lend itself easily to adaptation to the big screen (there's really no plot or central character; it's basically a series of interviews), but if done right, it could have been interesting.

The movie is just a generic pseudo-intelligent pseudo-blockbuster with little if any of what made the book interesting. Brad Pitt is a plank of wood in the movie. This movie should have been a Ken Burns-style documentary, not yet another run-for-your-life apocalypse movie. Huge disappointment.

The Walking Dead is at least decent at times, though no one will/should mistake it for a great work of television.

WWZ (which should be renamed Brad Pitt's Greasy Hair Saves The Day) is just a snoozer.

i rented that james franco Oz movie lastnight. i expected to enjoy it on an ironic level but it was so bad i just turned it off, which has never happened... "movie night" for me is kind of a hallowed thing and i stick with whatever i'm watching regardless of how bad it is so i can forget about work and stuff. but it was just awful

a shame... i've read the books and there's a deep well to draw from. but instead the movie just tried to ape the 1939 movie as if nothing "oz" ever existed outside of that. it could've been a really cool and dark fantasy franchise

Tonight my friend from Chicago and I saw a double bill* of This is the End and Bling Ring.

TitE was hilarious until about the time the dark shadow with the big dick, then it just got really bizarre and uncomfortable but still had some good stuff in it. BR was fun and silly. Hard to peg exactly what kind of movie it is - comedy, drama?

* not in the traditional sense of double bill; the tickets were only $4.25 so we decided to see two ($8.50 ftw)

That's a bit shit, Kinda forcing you to see 3D. You get the option of both here. 3D is slowly but surely decreasing in popularity in UK. I just despise the format, Especially films retrofitted. It can be ok if the director used a 3D camera. I've watched three 3D films in about 5yrs. Avatar, Dredd and Life Of Pi.

The Hunger Games - B+
Wow, what a pleasant surprise! I figured there wasn't a market for well-made young adult literature adaptions anymore, but here we are. Obviously it would have worked better as an R-rated movie (for me, anyway), the love triangle was ridiculously constructed and some of the green screen footage absolutely hideous, but at least it had a strong heroine portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence. No wonder she's Hollywood's darling at the moment.
Oh, and I refuse to believe Lenny Kravitz is a single day older than 30.

The Producers - C-
I usually enjoy Mel Brooks's hijinks, but this movie was completely dull, apart from Gene Wilder's outbursts. Everything from the overt homophobia, the laughable sexism to the endless Nazi jokes bored me to death.
Still better than the remake, though...

Europa Report...

I liked it, but i'm a bit of a geek when it comes to sci fi. I thought it dragged a bit at times and after all the work to make the science realistic to have the communication system completely break down seemed implausible.

Byzantium...

I like previous Neil Jorden films like Interview With a Vampire, The Crying Game, Michael Collins... Thought this one was one of the better Vampire films of the past few years.


Kiss of the Damned...

Reminded me of the The Hunger and other 70s/80s horror films. The guy from Heroes becomes a vampire. Joséphine de La Baume is nice to look at. A good vampire film. Very different from Byzantium but also not geared toward teens.

Saw Pacific Rim in 3D today. It wasn't a perfect film by any means, but it really didn't need to be. Definitely delivered on the visual front, obviously a bit of a sensory overload, every shot just jam packed with CGI and shit but managed to avoid turning into too much of a bayformer blurfest during the combat scenes and utilised the 3D pretty well I thought. Guillermo achieved what he set out to do and I had a shitload of fun watching it. Certainly worth the price of admission.

Idris Elba should be the highest paid actor on Earth. I hope Del Toro uses him in another film.

Hunnam was good, but I'm guessing that having him do his Sons of Anarchy voice instead of a native English accent is strictly to appeal to the US market and make the cast seem more international.

Charlie Day does a good JJ Abrams impersonation.

As much as i think prequels tend to suck, It would be cool to see a film set during the beginning of the Kaiju war with Elba piloting a Mecha.

good, if wildly far-fetched. actually, having watched the first couple of seasons i was shocked how critically lauded this show was in the States, as it didn't make much of a stir over here. i doubt the ratings were anything special and kind of think it may have not got a new series if it wasn't foe Elba's award. what is great about it is Elba's acting chops - he steals every single scene.

Pacific Rim was awesome, but not flawless. Wasn't as smart as I hoped it would be, but still much better than almost all of the crap that passes for effect-driven summer movies these days. Some damn good performances from the supporting cast (like anyone needs to be told that Idris Elba and Ron Perlman are awesome). Effects were a little too dark and rain-soaked for their own good, but overall held up pretty well. Movie made me shout "HOLY SHIT!" at least once, which is a good thing. Go see it, ideally in IMAX.

B+

I saw Pacific Rim in a regular digital theater on Saturday. I liked it alot.

I went with a few friends last night to see it again. This time in IMAX 3D. The 3D was shit. Horrible. I knew what was going to happen during the film and I still had a difficult time following some of the action sequences. Worse than any other 3D film I've seen. Really blurry and choppy. I was surprised that it was as bad as it was, knowing that the film had a huge budget and the FX were so good on a normal screen.

I'm not sure what went on with the 3D conversion, but it doesn't help the movie.

3d is shit and should die

films that are not made in 3d invariably suffer when converted to 3d. it's a stupid gimmick that died once already and god damn it why hasn'tyet.

I agree. It really is horrible. As is "D Box". (http://www.d-box.com/)I don't understand why anybody wants their chair shaken while they watch a movie.

I only went to the 3D version because the group I went with last night didn't have the option of another show time. I wish now I would have skipped it.

yeah i have no clue why it apparently has leg this time around. the use of 3D in Prometheus was okay as it was understated and not a post-production add-on. funnily enough, while waiting for Prometheus to come on i watched a 10-minute preview of the Spider-man film and fuck me that was annoying.

Seriously though, never seen Kurosawa's "Stray Dog " before, it's brilliant.

In 1990, to protect his fragile mother from a fatal shock after a long coma, a young man must keep her from learning that her beloved nation of East Germany as she knew it has disappeared.


I'm not a huge fan of foreign flicks, but this was a great one. The premise is rather simple and much of the intrigue is in the physical aspect of the son trying to build a virtual time portal around his mother. She fell into the coma after she got a heart attack watching him protest against the GDR and get arrested. classic.


stars Danial Bruhl who later was in Inglorious Basterds.
