A "Hey I just watched a movie" thread

Monkfish 12,433 1,116 April 23, 2010 at 06:49 PM
One of the other forums I go to has one of these threads and I've been turned on to some good movies that other regulars just watched. I was kind of surprised not to see a similar thread here (at least not that I could find.) Big Grin

I just rewatched "Kinamand" - a cute drama about a Danish plumber who gets involved in an arranged marriage with a Chinese illegal. Good stuff (Netflix instant.)

So what have you folks watched recently?

Mad About You was a great show. Remember when they walked in the apartment and Murray was standing on the dining room table because of the mouse? laugh out loud
I do remember that one. laugh out loud

Another one of my favorites was the Thanksgiving where they had to keep replacing the turkey because Murray ate it. Classic! laugh out loud

Criminal Law - Gary Oldman defends Kevin Bacon, a murderer. Bad dialogue but a few twists. Good for a evening thriller.

It Follows - One of the stupidest films ever. Haven't seen this much unwarranted hype over a POS film since Black Swan. It actually left us angry and frustrated over all the subtext and having to Google what it was really about when it was over. Facepalm

Don't understand all the love for The Martian. It was boring and predictable. I was disappointed... Ridley Scott? Matt Damon? C'mon you could have done better.
Robinson crusoe on mars & saving private ryan remake & merge, total lack of originality

The Revenant - Good but too many subtitles, if i wanted to read the damn thing i'd buy the book. I'm sure the book wasn't spoken in pawnee, why did the movie have to be?

The Wipers Times - A group of WWI soldiers find a printing press and decide to create a satirical newspaper in the front line trenches. It was interesting and funny. 3/5

It's on Netflix instant watch, btw.

"Happiness and depression are both feelings, just like joy and anger. It's not feelings that give us problems. It's what we do with them that makes the difference."

"When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down happy. They told me I didn't understand the assignment and I told them they didn't understand life."

Cold Play - Stumbled across it on You Tube. Nearly passed thinking it would be another crappy Lifetime movie. Quite good actually. Gets your attention and holds it. Twists and turns.

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi - Lookie there, Michael Bay makes a pretty good movie that isn't completely asinine by default and overblown. The story is from the book which is from the soldiers that went through the experience and Bay kept it on point from all I can tell. Well worth watching.

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation ~ Thank God it was in HD for free online. The dialogue and cinematography is really great for the first 1/3 then quickly goes downhill. I'm so used to Baldwin in 30 Rock that he made me laugh when he was trying to be serious. And finally, it was nice that the hot chick didn't have to kiss creepy and bloated Tom Cruise.

Looks like 2 other films are free online and can be removed from queue. Yay.

Frustrating and subtext and needing Google? I just thought it was about an evil something or other that kills you unless you can Tag You're It someone else.

The Cyberbully -- pretty good for being a teen angst movie where the majority of the action is typing on a keyboard. Stars Maisie Williams, the younger sister on Game of Thrones. Who was also in multiple episodes of the latest season of Doctor Who by the way.

Starring Adam West. Biography of Adam West, probably best known for the 1960s Batman TV show and the voice of the mayor on Family Guy. Shows the rise and fall and rise of a rather down-to-Earth Hollywood celebrity.

He Never Died. Henry Rollins. Understatedly enjoyable. A day in the life of a seemingly more-than-human guy who doesn't sweat the small stuff and doesn't care for other people yet supernaturally winds up helping them anyway. I'm trying to not spoil the movie's Revelations.

The Forest. Horror movie based on a real forest in Japan where people walk in but they don't walk out. Stars the best Game of Thrones queen Natalie Dormer. You can probably guess how the story is going to go, but, still, Pretty Creepy!

The Veil. Jessica Alba and Thomas Jane. A group of investigators investigate the old stomping grounds of a cult that tried to gain immortality. You can probably guess how the story is going to go, but, still, Pretty Creepy!

The Boy. Horror thriller. Stars Laura Croft from The Walking Dead. A couple needs a babysitter to watch their "son," who is a three-foot-tall doll. You can probably guess how the story is going to go, for the most part. Not really very all that creepy!

Well, we're horror fans so we view things differently and we are both affiliated with the film industry. Mindless entertainment is fine but my SO and I felt they were trying to say something more and they were. Rape is never an easy subject but this was so abstract compared to say... The Accused or Bastard Out of Carolina. Not that subtext is bad just that you've failed completely as a filmmaker if so many viewers just think it's a stupid horror film.

The Revanant - 7/10

Beautiful cinematography, I was really enjoying the scenery BUT very difficult movie to watch because what main character faces, just brutal. Inspired by true events with key word being inspired. Acting was great all around. Story didn't do much for me, a man's will to survive to seek out justice/revenge.

Also not a good movie to watch when it's -10 outside. Wait for it on DVD and watch in summer.
