Just another in a long line of lame Sandler movies that just try too hard.

 

We have a Drive In about 20 minutes from home and go whenever possible. Very rare for us to ever go to a regular theater. I don't need fancy surround sound or 3D gimmicks to enjoy a movie.

I have not seen Interstellar, but "2001: A Space Odyssey" easily makes my all-time top 10 list. It may even be number one, but I don't like placing entirely different films in a specific order of favorites. I don't care for most Sci-Fi, but 2001 is much more than that. It's far too complex to put it into any category, but it's definitely a masterpiece of cinema, and one will either love it or hate it. I've never seen any opinions that fall into the in-between category. It is the one film I have seen more often than any other film, and I still have vivid memories of watching it over and over again whilst under the influence as a teenager. I'd say that everyone should watch it at least once, but definitely keep an open mind and stick with it. Some think it is "boring", but it's not some Hollywood Sci-Fi film.

 

I definitely agree, it is a masterpiece of cinema. Most definitely a movie I'll never forget, and I still can't look at a rectangle the same way :P. I've seen the movie a few times, however still notice more and more themes, symbolism, e.t.c every time I watch it. 

 

I love how the film is open to interpretation, and how could you not love those outstanding visual effects? :P

Tom Cruise and I have a love hate relationship. I love his movies but hate him as an actor. I actually want to see this film. I know what I am getting when I see one of his movies. 

 

Have you ever seen "Magnolia"?  In my opinion, it was Tom Cruise's best role and perhaps best film ever.  He's not the main character, but his character is actually one of the best parts of the film.  "Eyes Wide Shut" is another good film, but that's Stanley Kubrick's last film, so it isn't necessarily a typical Tom Cruise film.

I really need to go back and watch it again.  Like I said, I've seen it more times than any other film, but I probably haven't watched it in five or more years.  I agree though, you definitely notice different things with each viewing and the visual effects were light years ahead of its time.  The sequel, "2010", is far more dated and lacks everything in comparison.  I actually hated that one and wish it had never been made, but sequels are usually bad ideas in the first place. :P

 

It's weird, I cannot honestly remember the last film I saw in theaters.  When I was younger, I used to see just about everything--now I'm lucky if I go every two or three years.  Of course, since playing GTA, my film viewing as a whole has seen a very sharp decline.

I heard that 2010 wasn't too bad, and also that it was nothing in comparison to 2001, I haven't watched it and still don't know if I intend to. Hahah I agree, there's only a few films with sequels that I like, but generally in the comedy genre. 

This year I've started going to cinemas again, mainly because a relative who is visiting from Europe wants to go, otherwise I'll only go if it's a movie I know I'll like, cinemas are way too expensive anyway plus everything is on the internet. 

Yep, GTA has taken over most of my free time lol, ever since I got GTA I barely watch any programs that are on TV.

I used to go to the cinema a lot. These days hardly ever seem to go. Maybe a certain game has something to do with that?

 

I do have quite a few of my favourite films on DVD and think the last one I watched was The Duelists. I'd give that 5/5 (I wouldn't own a copy of it otherwise). It's Ridley Scot's first film from the 1970s. A fairly low budget one but with the sort of stunning visual shots you expect from him, or at least his early films. It's set in 19th century France about two officers in Napoleon's army who fight an inconclusive duel over some trivial disagreement. One of them (played by Harvey Keitel) insists they resume the duel at a later stage. The other (played by Keith Carradine) is far less enthusiastic about the whole concept of dueling and tries to avoid resuming it. But over the course of many years their paths keep crossing and they resume their duel, each time without either of them gaining what the rules of dueling consider an acceptable victory. It does end many years later after Napoleon's defeat. I won't give the ending away though. It's very well acted. Has quite a few relatively famous British actors who weren't big names at the time in the supporting roles. A couple of the duels are very well shot as well, one in particular stands out for me when they fight with heavy sabres until they are both exhausted and can barley stand, let alone try to attack the other.

 

 

2001 is a fantastic film. I don't own a copy because I don't think watching it on a TV does it justice. It has to been seen in a cinema. The special effects are phenomenal for it's time. The one bit I think does look dated is the beginning. Those prehistoric apes just don't look like anything other than actors in furry costumes to me. I guess you can blame Planet of the Apes for that. But I have read that when it came out many people thought they were real apes that had been specially trained. The sequel is certainly not as good. But I would recommend all the books to anyone. The original book was written by Arthur C Clarke so that he could then do the film's screenplay from it. The music is fantastic as well. If anyone remembers and likes the really eerie orchestral music when they find the monolith on the moon you may want to try some other Ligeti. There's some currently available on the BBC's website http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p030w12q. (not sure if that link works outside the UK though).

Any person that figures the monkey men in planet of the apes were real life, specially trained monkeys, is broken.

 

Watched horns yesterday, it was alright, rubbish at the start, but was watch-able. I would give it 3/5 but wouldn't recommend anyone watches it. It's about Harry Potter being accused of killing his girlfriend by everyone everywhere. He wants to prove his innocence, randomly grows horns on his head and gains the abilities to order people to do things and hear their sins.

 

Last film I watched that was pretty good was Would you rather? Not a sensational story or amazing acting but a twisted idea you couldn't help but play along with. About a rich man playing with people that need his money by asking them would you rather do this horrific thing or this terrible thing? I mostly chose terrible meself. 2.859/5

Yes I have seen Magnolia. I really enjoyed that film. I did see Eyes Wide Shut as well. I saw that when it first came out. I can't remember if I liked it or not. I just remember the way it ended. I should go back and watch it again.

It was the ones in 2001 I was referring to. That's slightly more understandable as they don't talk and I suppose in the late 60s many people had never even seen a gorilla on TV. But I guess it just shows how good the 2001 special effects were for their time.

Testing my new toy, i came arround to watch Selfless with Ryan reynolds and Ben Kingsley.

What a waste of time, the concept of imortality only avaible to the richest and you could transfer to a new body……such a good cast wasted

I had been better off playing Gta

How can you (the royal you) like GTA and not like Fast & Furious movies?

 

And Birdman was crap. A movie about actors for actors. That's why it's so highly regarded, Hollywood giving itself a blowjob.

I agree Hatch. I really enjoyed Valkyrie. Last movie I watched in theater was San Andreas (girlfriend loves disaster movies). I'd give it a 6. Not horrible, but I think 2012 did it better.

I have a movie I think will be well liked.

 

Snowpiercer 4/5

This was a really good movie. It was something new. Not that same old story just recycled with new actors and a slight change of script. Any time I watched a good film I look up everything I can about it. Its origin, if there are any originals from decades past, or if its an adaptation of another film. The history behind it as interesting.

F&F series is among my favorites. As for the Tuner cars, it's not really my thing either. I do enjoy, what I call Pacific Muscle cars. Japanese high power sports cars. Supra, RX7,  Skyline. But they also include some American Muscle. Dom always drives a Mopar. The one that really hurt was Tokyo Drift. The movie was ok for what it was, but when they desecrated a Gen 1 mustang my installing, what appeared to be an RB26 in it,  that hurt real bad.

You're right, Pen0sIre, people are interested in GTA for many different reasons. You can't deny that F&F and GTA share a lot of the same vehicles, stunts and parallels in missions. GTA borrows from a lot of other movies as well.

 

And don't get me wrong, I'm not saying F&F is high art or even fine cinema. They are fun blockbusters full of eye candy and explosions and cheesey acting. I like that and it's my 2nd favorite movie genre.

 

Edit: Last movie I saw was Thelma & Louise. I'd never seen it before, only the clip of them jumping the car off the cliff. I'll give it a 3. The characters were really 1 dimensional especially the men. Maybe it's F&F for girls. GIna Davis was smokin hot in it though!

Great film and a good story.

 

Did you know the only reason more assassination attempts weren't made on Hitler in the later years was because he was doing more harm to the Nazi war effort than the allies combined. If they had have taken him out someone more competent or sane might have taken over and who knows what the world would look like then.

 

That actually leads me to my next point, not a film but there's a very interesting TV series coming out soon. The Man in the High Castle tells a story of what the world could have been like if the Axis powers had won.

Last films I watched.

 

Trainwreck - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3152624/?ref_=nv_sr_1

6/10.

Amy is a journalist who loves a one night stand. This is a story of why, who and how she turns herself around. Quite funny in some bits (John Cena has a brilliant few scenes) Amy Schumer can be a little annoying for 2 hours straight though.

 

Southpaw - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1798684/?ref_=nv_sr_1

9/10

Love love love this film. One of the best films I have ever seen. Jake Gyllenhaal is superb as Billy Hope, the boxer with the world at his feet, until one life changing night.

I'm expecting a Best Actor Oscar for him.

Yes it is on a train and yes you should watch it. I can't say to much without giving anything away. I guess all I can say is for a movie on a train it never feels like a confined movie. For example; Phone booth, how are you going to make a movie about a guy in a phone booth and it be good? Hence why the movie was a flop. At first I thought to myself the same thing about this movie. How are you going to make a movie on a train, all the while making the audience not feel like they are confined to a train and at the same time make sure it is not a terrible movie. I would have given it a higher rating but very few movies have ever made my highest rating.

So I found this movie on Netflix.

It is called "Time Lapse". I give it a 3 out of 5.

I like the idea of the film (A couple find a camera that takes pictures into the future). A film like this has bend one before and can be ver predictable. This film was OK. The ending kind of pulled it together and made it not so terrible. If anyone watches please let me know. I would love to bounce some personal takes of the film back and forth.

Just for sum up of some of the movies you guys talked about:

 

Interstellar, requires a lot of watchings to fully undestand it, I will say that Interstellar is today what 2001:A Space Odyssey was back in the day, It really took decade(s) to understand that movie, and now it's kinda legendary, so give Interstellar time, it has much deeper meaning as to what the eye sees, I'd give it a 4,5/5

 

 

Birdman, well, I for one didn't like it, here in Denmark at least we have a movie genre that is really big internationally called "Dogme" or "Dogma" if you will, people seem to love it, some seem to not like it at all, either you like dogma or not, and I for sure do not like it, I can watch a movie like that which is around 1h30m, and I feel like I've been staring at something I have no idea about what the heck is going on for 5 hours. Can't deny the actors and how much of a deep meaning it had, although not my kind of style at all.

Personally: 2/5, realistically: 3.5/5

 

Latest I've watched: 

Avengers: Age of Ultron, very good movie, but I also love Marvel, 3.9/5

Citizenfour: Must watch, absolutely must watch, It's a documentary, but watch, and be mindblown to what is happening in our world! 4/5

Mad Max Fury Road: I really enjoyed it, even though many says it's not that good, 3.8/5

 

My absolute favorite movies of all time (5/5):

 

Inception

 

The Dark Knight

 

The Shawshank Redemption

 

The Intouchables

 

Star Wars, in this order: Episode: 4, 5, 6, 3, 2, 1. Many says the prequels are very bad, but I actually really think they are good, maybe episode 1 isn't as great, but episode 3 is in my opinion very good.

 

Godfather Pt. 1

 

Schindler's List

 

The Matrix Series, Yes yes, not many people like it, but I think it's a very cool take on sci-fi, and I at least still enjoy them.

 

Honorable mentions:

 

Whiplash

 

The Dark Knight Rises

 

2001: A Space Odyssey

 

Django Unchained

 

The Green Mile

 

Back to the Future series, yes yes I know, not actually masterpieces, but, childhood memories.

 

I could go on, but the list will be virtually neverending.

 

I'm open for discussion on any of these :)

The Visit. -1.

This movie was complete garbage. Night really needs to just stop making stuff. Typical non R rated scary movie that isn't scary at all. Footage film to boot, the worst thing ever created.

Finished the Harry Potter series last week. Continuing on my notes :

4th : 9 Best in the series IMO

5th : 8

6th : 7

7th pt1 : 7

7th pt2 : 7

The last one feels a bit rushed in the end, despite it being split in two parts.

Saw The Mask on TV last night. Saw it like 10 times but it's always a pleasure. Very fun movie, lots of action throughout the whole film. The bad guy is hyper stereotypical and can't act but anyway, I always have a good time watching this movie.

It's a 8 for me.

Mad Max Fury Road 2/10

 

Plot: Drive car through desert for half the film, drive Car back to where you started for second half of the film.

 

Two points for the effects and the action, but that's all there is. This film has the intellectual depth of a puddle. I was dissapointed.
