Movies and Cinemas

Post  Smashy B on Fri Nov 21, 2008 10:28 pm

General thread for all discussion on movies here! Anyone see any good movies lately, or any in general? Any movies that you want to see? Also, what is/are your favorite movie(s) and what are your favorite genres?

Recently, I saw The Fight Club on G4's "Movies That Don't Suck." Well, it would have to be THE GREATEST MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN! The movie had a great plot with an even greater plot twist, the main characters felt dynamic and defined, great ending, and great theme. Movie stars Edward Norton, Brad Pitt, and some chick, who's name escapes me. Since then, it just so happens that I happen to catch movies on starring one of them. Saw Mr. and Mrs. Smith followed by The Italian Job, which both are other favorites of mine.

I also saw 007: Quantum of Solace in theaters. It was ok. Story and plot were hard to follow, but it had some great action scenes. And there was Eagle Eye. That one was good. It the kind of movie that's fast paced throughout the whole movie, and a good story to it.

Other favorites are: (that I can remember)
There Will Be Blood - Great Story. (Also has Paul Dano in it - It took me to hearing him scream in the movie to figure out where I've seen him before...)
Little Miss Sunshine - Hella fuckin funny, great actors. (Fun Fact: Paul Dano plays Dwayne.)
3:10 to Yuma -Another great story
The Bourne movies
Pirates of the Caribbean
Ferris Beuler's Day Off - a classic
Ocean's 11
007
Superbad
Jackass
Die Hard

My favorite genres are typically high action movies, comedy, and movies with a great plot and story. I've kinda lightened up on the Comedy a little, they make me laugh and I just never see most of them as a "great" movie, but well worth watching. Also, I don't care for horror. The genre doesn't scare me, and the movies tend to suck anyways.

First.

I don't go out and watch as many movies as most, but here goes.

Dogma
Harold and Maude
The Patriot
The Mummy
Jesus Christ Superstar
The first Pirates of the Caribean
Hunt for Red October
The Sting
Phantom of the Opera
Original Star Wars Trilogy
Master and Commander
Kung Fu Hustle

I'll think of more later, as well as post something more interesting than a list. I'm registering for college classes for the spring semester right now.

Well I can name a few favourites as I have way too many

The Dark Knight
The Crow (Brandon Lee is the Man, it sucks that he died)
Superbad
Slap Shot
No Country for Old Men
Burn After Reading
Gangster #1
Star Wars Trilogy (Original)
30 Days of Night
Rumble in the Bronx
Brother
Zodiach
Everything Tarantino
The Rock
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Foreign Films:
Versus
Ichi the Killer
Ran
Humanist
Memories of Murder (Amazing drama about Korea's first serial killer)
Audition
Oldman
Shinobi
Shaolin Soccer

And many others

As far as genres:
Horror (Be it good or cheesy (old horrors like Jason, etc) as long as it's not stupid (ie most of todays stuff)), Comedy, Action, and biography style movies.

As far as what I'm looking forard to seeing it'd have to be "The Wrestler" starring Mickey Rourke. Looks absolutely fantastic

Very good. I saw it twice in theaters- highly recommended. In my opinion, the best of the Coen brothers movie.

Big Lebowski is their most quotable, though.

"This is a very complicated case, Maude. You know, a lotta ins, a lotta outs, a lotta what-have-yous. And, uh, lotta strands to keep in my head, man. Lotta strands in old Duder's head."

"Saturday, Donny, is Shabbas, the Jewish day of rest. That means I don't work, I don't drive a car, I don't fuckin' ride in a car, I don't handle money, I don't turn on the oven and I sure as shit don't fucking roll!"

Watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall with my folks (LOL). It was pretty funny and worth the laughs. Just stick to watching it with friends. Oh, and contains frontal nudity.

Lots of good movies have been said already. And so I add mine to the ever growing list, as well as repeating some.

Shaun of the Dead (England and zombies, what more do you want? "Kill the Queen!")
Pulp Fiction ("English motherfucker! Do you speak it?!" "Aw man, I shot (forgot the name) in the head!")
Red vs Blue Seasons 1-5; Reconstruction (think of each episode as a chapter and each season is a movie)
Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb ("Gentlemen! There's no fighting in the War Room!")
The Dark Knight (Why so serious indeed.)
Jurassic Park
I Am Legend (just saw it the other day, pretty good)
Austin Powers

and there's probably some more.

I remember some others that are on my favorites list and rank higher on my list than most of the others. It's a shame i forgot about them before.

Forrest Gump
The Prestiege
American History X

All of which, I could watch over and over again (along with Fight Club).

Mega bump! Got something worthwhile and this part of the forums have been rather dead lately.

Finally saw No Country For Old Men. Great Movie, I was very into it. The thing with it is that a lot of things are subtle, so some of the parts, especially dialogue since everyone talks low, are kind of hard to pick up on, like the end. But it was still good.

I loved NCFOM and this thread has been dead. I WAS gonna bump it up with The Wrestler when I saw it but I figured no one would be that interested.

Since I mentioned it though, I loved the film and thought it was quite brilliant. It really showcases the real lives these men and women live. Also, it's not focused so much on wrestling as life in general. That's my quick opinion and I recommend seeing it.

On a related note, I just saw Wall-e, and I fucking loved that movie. I, as an 18 year old male, watched it with my other teenage male friends, and I am not ashamed to admit it was the cutest movie ever, and that I was touched by the ending.

Lol. I got one better. I saw it in Tahoe when it was in theaters with my male friend. As with you, we liked it and thought it was cute.

Although cute, I really didn't like the fact that Pizza's don't grow on trees.

Ya, I too saw it in theatres with a group of friends (1 was a girl and 5 of them were guys plus me) and I love it. In fact I love most animated movies. My first time meeting the girl who now hates me we watched Wall-e followed up with Beauty and the Beast (she knew ever bloody line to the movie and she can sing to top it off). It was a good night.

Fobby, I'm sorry for your disappointment but don't fear, I'm working on 1 of those trees just for you and a money tree for me

I've seen a lot of good movies lately. At least the following:

Ratatouille
No Country For Old Men
Darjeeling Limited
Watchmen
Schindler's List

And I loved every single one of them. I think I'm going to watch One Flew Over Cuckoo's Nest next. And then There Will Be Blood, probably.

Grindhouse
Fargo
Animal House
Little Miss Sunshine
Life Is Beautiful (Italian)
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
The Green Mile
No Country For Old Men
Dawn of the Dead
Nobody Knows (So incredibly sad...)
12 Monkeys
Pan's Labyrinth
Wonderland
Pixar (Toy Story, Ratatouille, The Incredibles, etc.)
Superbad
Nacho Libre
Napoleon Dynamite (sh-shut up I still like this movie okay geez)

There Will Be Blood is a great one. Can't say about the other one, though.

I like it. It's a different movie, but it's good for what it's worth.
