A "Hey I just watched a movie" thread

Monkfish 12,435 1,117 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?

The Prestige was a little too dark for me. The Illusionist was more my style.
Finally, someone who remembers the OTHER movie about magic! laugh out loud They both came out at the same time, but for some reason everyone seems to only remember The Prestige. I liked The Illusionist more than The Prestige, but I thought they were both great movies.

I remember it, but outside of Jessica Biel heart that movie just didn't provide enough of "something" to make me remember it or endear to it. I guess the Prestige kept you guessing so much and was so snarling intense that it gets into your head more. Both movies were well acted though and both are well worth the watch.

Just got back from watching Star Trek Into The Darkness. We really like it! So far, this series is sooooo much better than the original movies.
Blasphemy!

I remember both of them, just can never remember which is which. I liked the one with Hugh Jackman better.

The Internship

Got tickets to screener. Went in thinking it was going to be average comedy, but I was totally shocked. From start to finish it was hilarious!! I would compare it to "Old School" for techies.

I would give 4/5 stars.

This is probably going to sound like a dumb question....but is there a ton of raunchy stuff in it? I want to take my dad because I think he would like it, but not if it is a horrible movie.

Every trailer I have seen for that movie makes it look ridiculously stupid. I could have gotten screeners for it but didn't want to waste my time. Maybe I will redbox it (not that I don't value your opinion, I just don't trust those two main actors in a movie to be any good (or clean)).

There was 0 raunchy stuff, clean comedy. Just go with an open mind and you will enjoy it.

When I got the passes for screener, I checked out the trailer and my thoughts were exactly like yours. I almost decided not go, but I was just sitting at home and decided to go last minute. And I'm glad I did. Movie was surprisingly clean. No nudity in it.

King: A Filmed Record Montgomery to Memphis - Bad soundtrack. Good footage of MLK and the times but it's unnarrated.

Beautiful Creatures - Unwatchable. Almost nothing I can't or wont sit through. Avoid.

Crush - A lot of missed potential. Stalker gets stalked. laugh out loud Not a terrible ending.

Star Trek Into Darkness
Damn it, Jim, I'm a doctor not a convincing replacement of Dr. McCoy!

It's action-y and overall fine, but, I don't know, it's hard to root for the heroes of a movie when I don't particularly like them very much. Even Spock, who is supposed to not show emotions, often seems to have some weird, annoying, emotional facial expression going on.

Mission to Lars
A man with a form of autism tells his brother and sister every day, "I want to meet Lars (Ulrich of Metallica)." They get tired of him saying it, so they take a trip to the U.S. from the UK and drive an RV to concerts trying to make it happen while filming it and all the problems along the way. It's pretty fun and, what's the word I'm looking for, I suppose so I don't strain my brain too hard I'll just go with "touching."

"The film is giving all profits to charity and everyone has donated time and music for free."

Fast and Furious 6
Pretty good! Over-the-top car chases and a bit too much cheese, but hey.
Amusing how The Rock makes Vin Diesel look like a couch potato.

Iron Man 3
Jumped the shark.

star trek into darkness. i'm not going to mention a plot description, just rating. 4/5. if you see it then i'll discuss why.

iron man 3. again 4/5. iron man 1 had an antihero as its plot point. it was unique, and endearing. you hated that you were rooting for the billionaire playboy who made his money on killing so many people. you loved he tried to change that into fixing his mistakes.

iron man 2 was favreau with a wide open script and no idea what to do.

3 was a rich character and a writer that can use it. there are plot holes galore, but it works a lot better than 2.

fast 6. to enjoy this, you have to realize what its aiming for. this is a fast car/big explosions/hot girls movie. its cheap to make, and the dvd sales usually cover costs. rest is gravy. given that, its great. no it doesn't make sense, but its funny and has great action scenes.

Fast and Furious 6 - explosive pop corn flick on the real. They spared no expense and London has never looked so lovely. This movie doesn't let up too much and has its sentimental moments no doubt. It tops the previous movie easy and can't wait for the next in 2014. Don't leave out without seeing the cameo which Vin Diesel says was an idea that people/friends from his Facebook page had been jockeying to see.

Stand Up Guys - I really liked it, some great lines, excellent acting and some very funny moments. Don't over think the story line and you'll enjoy it too. 4/5

"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."
