Last movie you watched

Recommended Posts

yo dont front like htat prison mud scene sucked... and mad dog... dude was throwin all kindsa shit around, the slasher scene, all that owned imo... the more stuff that got thrown, the more pumped i got

 

sure the fights were shorter but they were like twice as disgusting... idk i guess my overall stance is that i did not gaf about the plot or coherence or anything like that, the fights were nuts and i liked all the closeup shots of red lightbulbs and leather gloves. def an uneven movie but that didnt really effect my enjoyment at all

 

also remember the floppy hat dude told rama he had to re-train and learn new skills so thats why hes op.... :fedora:

when did he ever get the chance to retrain tho...it went from his offer to his bro's funeral to him getting in jail

 


Toilet fight - pretty cool
 
prison yard fight - awesome
 
mad dog slasher - meh, he killed some henchmen and then did a really cliche "serial killer walk" that somehow catches up to a dude running
 
mad dog death scene - it was okay i guess? he took out like 3 people and that guy's throat but got fucked up good
 
rama's fight with the pornographer - meh, funny when he took the bat from the guy
 
the son's scene with him slitting the dudes throats - took way too long - felt like Only God Forgives
 
1st rama's fight with the boss fight (after his crimeboss got killed) - you can tell it was way sped up. pretty cool tho. it was prob 20 seconds long tho
 
batboy and hammer girls 1st fight - cool altho they are OP. bunch of henchmen. batboy's ball trick is kinda gimmicky tho
 
car chase scene - awesome, some sweet camera shots too
 
rama driving into the HQ - good old fashion fighting
 
rama fighting batboy and hammer girl - awesome video game boss fight
 
rama v boss - best fight

I started Non-Stop last night and omg no. Stopped it 30 minutes in. Couldn't get into it. Sooooo sloooooowwww.

Rewatched within the last couple of weeks:

1. Ken Branagh's "Hamlet" last weekend. Beautiful.

2. A Hard Day's Night. Lennon cracks me up every damn time he's on screen.

3. Quiz Show. Because Ralph Fiennes.

4. Primer. Okay. I've seen this about 3 times in as many months and I still pick up on shit I didn't notice from previous viewings. Shitty camera work, but considering it was made for $7k, what would you expect. If you haven't seen this, do so. It's so good.

And that's my first post on this "new" board. ;)

Just saw O Brother, Where Art Thou? on an original 35mm print yesterday afternoon. I love this movie. The print was in pretty good condition. One of the perks of living by the George Eastman house.

Love the Eastman house. I moved out to the sticks so it's a bit of a haul to make it into the city these days. I saw evil dead 2/return of living dead double feature quite a few years ago at the Dryden. One of my favorite movie going experiences. Also got to see Alien there, incredible. They have a really great line up this summer.

Hey, welcome. And yeah, I agree on all counts. They have had a lot of good films there this summer. Just saw the restored A Hard Days Night there last week. It was great!

Jacques Tati - Les vacances de Monsieur Hulot - thumbs up

 

An uneventful but charming comedy that is what it says on the tin - the holidays begin, and they end, and that's it.  The clumsy but charming M. Hulot goes on holidays, tries to date a charming girl, and everyone else is a caricature of some sort.  This is like a feature-length episode of Mr. Bean - Rowan Atkinson was obviously following in Tati's footsteps.  Tati was following in the footsteps of silent film comedy stars as well, but not quite as blatantly.  The lack of a conventional narrative and the relegation of dialogue to essentially background noise might put off some viewers.  The success of this film in France explains the enduring appeal of Jerry Lewis over there - they probably saw a bit of Tati in him.

Richard Linklater - Boyhood

Could have been a lot better. The film suffers from it's idea to be THE film about youth. Linklater fails to go in depth because he tries to show many (cheesy) parts of nearly everyone's life in western culture which results in a film which that has very bland, caricatural characters and some forgettable pseudo-philosophic statements of the main character. I think that Linklater tried to show that adolescents can be annoying sometimes but this is also a very shallow way to portray boyhood. The film barely goes deeper. Furthermore the comments on the Zeitgeist are one-sided (liberal) and too simple (the Soundtrack is sometimes awful. Linklater picked only the most popular Indie hits of the last fifteen years). Some scenes are very cheesy and the dialogue in the first half of the film could have been a bit better. Other than that a pretty enjoyable film.

 

Rating: 6.5/10

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes - 7/10

It was fun as hell and basically a joy to watch the whole time but it also felt like every line was taken from the big book of movie cliches.

 

The Raid: Redemption - 9/10

Glorious

 

Now I just really wanna see
