for Rental or theatre viewings either is cool. Anything you want to see or have seen and want to recommend.

I saw this preview today and it looks funny. I also highly recommend against seeing My Bloody Valentine 3D, pretty bad, pretty sure I got dumber.

But here's the one I think looks funny: I Love You, Man

"The Fall." Obscure film that I caught a couple months back. Unique story with great cinematography. Highly recommended.

"Lakeview Terrace" was suprisingly good. I had heard some bad reviews, so I stayed away until it came to the cheap theater. I really enjoyed Samuel L. Jackson playing a "questionable character cop"...

Funny, I just had this conversation with my friend Brian. He said that Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Knocked Up and 40 Year old Virgin all fell into that category. I kind of see them as a good compromise, enough stupid boy stuff to make the guys happy, with a bit of a gooey stuff for the girls without being overly sappy (I am not a huge fan of most chick flicks because they all tend to use the same girl cliches, girls get together singing, dancing around at slumber parties, talking about boyfriends...there are a few exceptions). As for this film, I like Paul Rudd, he tends to be a bit ascerbic and I like that, though unfortunately I read he is a Chiefs fan, poor thing.;)

Slumdog Millionaire - currently out in select cities

The most simply entertaining 2 hours ive had at the movies in a long time.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - this movie, while quite hollywood, wowed me with its technology but more so made me sombrely reflect on family and the passage of time. It's a beautiful film.

Gran Torino - Clint Eastwood is my favourite director. He doesn't disappoint here. There's a suprising amout of humour here... and his symbolism is in full force. Great little movie.

Man on Wire (DVD / Netflix instant) - Riveting documentary about the guy that tight roped between the two WTC towers in 74.

Iraq in Fragments (DVD / Netflix instant) - Beautifully shot documentary with three stories - a sunni boy in baghdad, the sadrists in basra and the kurds in the north. Crazy stuff there. Nice to see a documentary from an Iraqi perspective for once.

Now or in the olden days there was a lot of bad product. Now the worst of it ends up in straight to video where back in the day there used to be an intro feature with the big feature following it. I am a big fan of 40s film comedies and noir (though some if it is dated, a big cliche and sometimes cheesy given modern sensibilities). I love Kate Hepburn and Robert Mitchum especially. Now, there are fewer male or females I would say I really love, Jodie Foster is one I can think of, Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet. Males are harder to find (Russell Crowe sometimes, he reminds me of Richard Burton or Marlon Brando on occasion). I do like Christian Bale and some smaller character actors like William H. Macy. Clooney is good, he has that Dean Martin thing working for him.

Right now I am on a political kick so I am wanting to see Frost/Nixon and Milk. I also want to see Slumdog Millionaires, The Reader and the one coming out with Kate and Leo.

You know, I got a little curious to see what came out this year. There really were some awful movies, plus a lot of things that I never heard of and very few I actually saw or wanted to see. Dark Knight was probably one of my favorite films this year actually.

Chris
01-19-2009, 08:48 PM
I'm glad to see people here liked Benjamin Button.

I think since 2005 we've had awesome movies come out every year. Before then, there was about a 5 year drought where only utter crap was being shown.

Don Flamenco
01-19-2009, 08:56 PM
Good one mentioning 'The Fall', Slyinky. I almost forgot about that one.

I've seen 7 pounds, Changeling, Benjamin Button, Slumdog Millionaire and Gran Torino.

Gran Torino is by far the best movie out of that bunch with Benjamin Button being a complete waste of 3 hours. It was the only movie out of that bunch that I would not want to watch again.

I'd say Eastwood's more recent movies of Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, Flags of Our Fathers, and Letters From Iwo Jima are a better comparison than Space Cowboys.

I just got done reading the book "Into the Wild" by John Krakauer. It's a very compelling story about a kid who graduates college, and then hits the road for adventure across America. I absolutely loved the book, and so I picked up the movie - Great freaking movie. They did a fantastic job with the story.

Besides that, I'm becoming a big Emile Hirsh fan. He was great in Lords of Dogtown. I thought he did well in Alpha Dog too. This role, however, was special. Especially towards the end of the show. A very believable performance from an up and comer.

I highly recommend this flick.

Two weekends ago I saw Slumdog Millionaire. Its not horrible, in fact, Id say its good. But its also way overhyped for what it is. Theres such a dearth of movies though.

One movie to avoid is Paul Blart. I saw that Saturday. Wow, that sucked.

One movie that Id definitely recommend is Tell No One. Its a french movie that should be showing available on Net Flix soon if its not already. I saw it a few months ago. It was no The Lives of Others but it was an excellent film.

One movie that I want to see is Che.

I love that movie. Then again, I'm an overly-idealistic, disillusioned college-ager so I'm an easy mark for it, haha.

That said, I think it would appeal to a lot of people--great coming-of-age/American roadtrip film. Also, agreed about Hirsh. This might have been his career defining role, even young as he is.

I think I had a special place for slumdog since i was in mumbai a year before the attacks... the memories came back pretty vividly... it was also sad to see the victoria terminus in so many shots (one of the attacks was there). Anyways, I totally loved it. But I'm from Hong Kong and I've grown up around a lot of India culture, with id say 50% indian friends so maybe my taste is quite specific.

Did you actually have expectations going into Paul Blart?:rofl: 30 second ads were more than enough for me.

I've heard good things about Tell No One. I'll have to check that one out. Glad to see someone else here saw Lives of Others. Outstanding film.

Che does look intriguing. I've heard they did a good job of keeping it fairly apolitical (if that is possible in a film about Che) instead of sensationalizing his life, which I tend to prefer in biopics. The Oscar voters apparently can't understand a biopic if there isn't swelling music every other scene or trite speeches at the end to wrap things up, but I appreciate a director that gives the audience enough credit to come to its own conclusion.

I expected something light with some laughs in Paul Blart. My expectations were calibrated for what it appeared to be on ads, but even with somewhat lower standards, it was still a disappontment. You know the plots going to be flimsy but you at least hope for a few laughs but there were very few.

Yeah, Ive taken to watching mostly Indies/arthouse and foreign films (namely french movies). Theyre a lot better than what hollywood is putting out...its been that way for a while actually.

The Lives of Others was great, I'll have to check out Tell No One. A French film that I would highly recommend is Cache, if you haven't seen it. I also loved Irreversible but can't say that I recommend it on account of it being very disturbing.

I mean even last year had Juno which I liked. Still this is a good place to start.

Have you seen Smart People? It also has Ellen Page in it. I actually thought it was a lot better than Juno. Another good movie that Ive seen recently (thought I think it came out in 07) was The Visitor.

John Krakauer IS the ****znik. I met him at Neptune Mountaineering in Boulder back in the 1990's. I LOVE INTO THE WILD. Into Thin Air is also an incredible book, and I highly recommend it too!

Thought Benjamin Button was just horrible, had no sense of pacing nor surprise. Fine the first hour, hack-trash the last two. Really shallow.

I saw Doubt, which is a compelling but sobering production--chillingly sad. I was uncomfortable in my seat the whole time; I'd recommend viewing it at home, just because it's an especially sad and conflicted piece.

Well I have only seen a couple recent movies, and those were the Benjamin Button one, and the Quantum of Solace one.

Both were good IMO, Button was a bit long though.

On a somewhat related note, I just finished watching season 3 of Dexter, that is a good show I recommend it.

I think I had a special place for slumdog since i was in mumbai a year before the attacks... the memories came back pretty vividly... it was also sad to see the victoria terminus in so many shots (one of the attacks was there). Anyways, I totally loved it. But I'm from Hong Kong and I've grown up around a lot of India culture, with id say 50% indian friends so maybe my taste is quite specific.

I agree that if you are really interested and love learning more about other cultures, Slumdog is a must see. One of my favorite movies of the past couple of years...but it won't be for everyone.

The Machinest with Christian Bale surprised me. The sound track was amazing, best since Bernard Herrman's work.

"City of God" was well done but it is subtitled. Kinda like a cross between Scarface and Stand-by me.

I loved "Angel A" - another French Film.

House is really good ... its definitely in the top 10 maybe even top 5. Burn notice, while a entertaining show, has every episode being the same. I could summarize every episode. So as I said, while it is a entertaining show since every episode is the same it shouldnt even be near the top 20.

But again, a show I like, but not something I feel particularly attached too.

I'd say Eastwood's more recent movies of Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, Flags of Our Fathers, and Letters From Iwo Jima are a better comparison than Space Cowboys.

shows how often he goes out to the movies. Gran Torino was one of the best movies out for last year. I read two bad reviews on google from probably immature, politically correct fish wrap hacks. I know one was from the Bay area so that tells you something. This story is so awesome and the fact the guy that wrote it had never done one before and most of it was in his buddy's bar who got credit for helping him(co-writor). A must see!
On Buttons, my Dad so it and said the first half was great but turned into non believable, chick flick to ruin it.

Anyway, enjoying good filmmaking (whatever forms that takes, I mean I am not a film snob, I like horror movies for goodness sakes) just means you have a brain.

Holy Smoke is an indie film she did about 10 years ago at least now, I think it's the one where she is naked a bunch with Harvey Keitel, but I could be wrong. It's been a while since I saw it. I remember liking the movie, but not a lot about it anymore. If you are just looking to see Kate in states of undress, of course there is a scene in Titanic (a film I don't particularly like except for stage design and special effects--the story is too cliche cheesy for me) and then there is Quills which is kind of about the Maurquid de Sade (though the hook up is between her and Joaquin Phoenix's priest character).

Personally my favorite Kate films so far in no particular order are: Heavenly Creatures, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Finding Neverland, Little Children, Holy Smoke, Enigma and Sense & Sensibility. Looking forward to seeing Revolutionary Road and The Reader.

As for Marisa Tomei, not a big fan, but I am not actually into seeing her naked so I probably wouldn't have cared that much. But she was funny in My Cousin Vinnie (maybe not really Oscar funny, but funny) and I liked this little movie she was in called Happy Accidents. I do want to see the Wrestler, which she's in.

As I read on in the thread I see this. You are a good man. Yes, it is absolutely the best show on TV right now.

I think it was last year when Taco showed us Pandora.com for music. There is a website called Criticker.com that allows you to rate movies from 0-100 and gives you matches on movies that it thinks you will like. And it is amazingly close.

The websites Probable Score Indicator(PSI) gives you a score, that score is based on how you have ranked previous movies. The more movies I've ranked, the closer the PSI gets to my actual ranking.

The site will also give you something called a Taste Compatibility Index (TCI). TCI's are people who have ranked movies similarly to what you have ranked movies.

The website is handy when trying to pick out a movie from the theater or something to rent. But one thing that I'm enjoying about it, is the ability to pick up movies from several years ago that I may have never heard of or forgot about and always wanted to see.

netflix has a similar "recommended for you" mechanism based off your rankings. So far, I've ranked over 1,200 movies and tv shows, so it's got a pretty good handle on what I like and don't like.

Great film.

A Chinese director I've started to get into is Wong Kar Wai. A little more out there in terms of film structure, but Chungking Express and 2046 were brilliant films, I thought. I've heard In the Mood for Love might be his best, so that's one I want to check out soon.

Wong Kar Wai writes his films as he goes along. That's why it took 5 years to film 2046. Pretty cool.

Well saw Revolutionary Road yesterday. It was well done, but if you don't enjoy Sam Mendes films you may not enjoy this. He really likes to put Middle America's hypocricies and miseries on film. I wasn't a big fan of American Beauty when it originally came out, but as I as my life has changed so has my perspective on that film to some degree (I still have some issue with Mendes's propensity to be a bit pompous and patronizing in his attitude toward American suburbia, but this film was better I thought). But if you are looking for a happy movie, this is not it.

In the past couple weeks I've seen Gran Torino, The Wrestler, and Frost/Nixon. Might go see Slumdog some time next week.

All were good and I thought Gran Torino and Frost/Nixon were real good. I like Marisa Tomei but didn't think she did anything out of the ordinary to garner all the award buzz. Eastwood is Eastwood and just brilliant in Torino and Frank Langella portrayal of Nixon was amazing.

I really, want to see all of those and now they finally have Slumdog closer to my house and the Wrestler. I really want to see Frost/Nixon. Totatally on a political film kick lately, Milk is also on my agenda. It would be nice if a good comedy came out too one of these days (and while I laughed at My Bloody Valentine I don't think they meant it to be funny, it was just stupid).

I will probably go totally mindless and see Friday the 13th (I know, I know, that sounds terrible, but i know what I am getting when I see it, it will be dumb no doubt, I didn't even like the original, but my friend and I really like horror movies and are going to have scary movie all girl slumber party thing).

Anyway good to know about those others from someone else.

My dad saw Slumdog yesterday and said it was one of the best movies he's seen in awhile.

Back to Frost/Nixon that movie just had me hooked from the beginning all the way until the end. Going in I said to myself that it will either be good or boring with the whole movie being just a 2 hour interview/conversation between Nixon and Frost.

The whole back story was interesting from who Frost was before the interview to researching bits for the interview and both sides trying to get the upper hand during the sit down. Nixon's phone call in the movie might have been my favorite part.

I just saw Slumdog Millionaire (pretty much the only thing there other then Gran Torino) I would want to see (the Castle Rock theatre seems a bit limited and definitely more expensive then theatres in the Spring). It was quite good and to me at any rate it makes me grateful to be American and for the life I have. The abject poverty makes me realize how spoiled we really are. Not that I didn't kind of know that, but this reminded me. It was a great film. I really enjoyed it. And visiting Castle Rock made me realize when I come back to CO, I will be living in Denver, not in Castle Rock unless I come back married because I swear being single here is just odd. It's such a family-married people town (not that there is anything wrong with that, but it's a go to bed early kind of town and I am a night owl). Of course my night out this weekend made me realize I am a pub, sports bar girl, not a "Blondies" dance with 23 year old gay male claiming to be straight kind of club. THere I just felt old and it was expensive for 4 drinks, $50.

Anyway, random thoughts over, Slumdog is a great film

And while I think this is probably a crazed girl film, but I think I need to see my potential life story, "He's just not that into you." :~ohyah!:

Yes she was quite stunning actually, and so much prettier then pretty much all the bimbos the boys keep posting. She was so pretty, delicate and elegant.

The guys were great actors too, though neither would I say is a threat to the hollywood main stream in terms of looks and since we all know looks are the only thing that matters, it doesn't much matter how great they are as actors. Too bad really. I liked the brothers very much. Anyway, it was a very good film.

Hmm, I am going to go see Friday the 13th with a female friend of mine. We are making it a girl's night. She and I like scary movies. So we are going to do the movie, grab some dinner and brews at a new brewery and then head back to my house for a girl's slumber party and watch the remake of Halloween (still prefer the original in most ways). I thought they already remade Texas chainsaw massacre and how can they have a Halloween 2 when she blew his head off in the remake?

Hey for anyone interested here is a link to AMC theaters. They are having a Oscar movie day on Feb 21st. $30 for 5 movies, free popcorn and soda I think. In Denver it's at Highlands Ranch AMC. I did this last year and it was fun, but a long day and you should try to bring other food or get out on the break to get real food (the snack stand food sucks and popcorn gets old fast).

Towel Head.

This movie is so messed up that you could start another thred on it alone. I am up for any thing twisted but this movie may go to far. It's about a 13 year old girl that bad bad things happen to. Its from the makers of american beauty and you can tell its along the same lines. Rent it.

Just watched "Pride and Glory" with Edward Norton , NYPD blue movie w/ cops gone bad. Pretty well done movie. acting was really good, plot was intense, and isn't a bad flick. Worth seeing.

I got that and RocknRolla earlier this week from Netflix and both weren't bad at all.

I agree with Pride and Glory for the most part except I thought it dragged a little in the middle but it was good though.

RocknRolla starts out slow but it gives you the backstory at what is going on in the movie and then it picks up with a good ending.

She was in fact naked in Brokeback Mountain, but my guess the film you are referring to is a winner called Havoc. See link below:

http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi2427191577/ (http://www.imdb.com/rg/VIDEO_PLAY/LINK//video/screenplay/vi2427191577/)

That is the movie, and it plays on IFC once to twice a month. Movie is so-so, and it does have mature theme, with a couple of sex scenes.

It also has Ben Affleck

He is a kiss of death if you want your movie to be worth anything

Outside of "Good Will Hunting" he hasnt done anything significant

while i agree with this statement mostly, he wasnt too bad in Changing Lanes, and he totally achieved with Gone Baby Gone..his brother obviously has the acting chops, Ben has talent...Hollywood tried to make him a leading man...it didnt work...

For a while i would agree with this....Gigli which I rented really and truly was the worst piece of filmmaking possibly in the history of movies.

However:
i still think a few of his collaborations with Kevin Smith were good: (NOT Jersey Girl) but Chasing Amy and Dogma were quite good. And mallrats his part was small but funny.

Also Hollywoodland was very good I thought, very 40s noir and he was very believeable as a frustrated B movie actor (go figure).

And some of his other stuff (more supporting roles, he's better in those I think):
School Ties,
Dazed and Confused
Glory Daze

Now, I do think Matt Damon is a much better actor, but he went through a stupid movie phase too.

I am telling you guys, If you want to see a really good flick that is very very twisted see Towel Head. It is so messed up that I am still talking about it a week later. Here is a link

Nothing has been confirmed but rumors have been out for awhile that he did some steroids. http://www.azcentral.com/ent/celeb/articles/2009/01/14/20090114rourke.html
Mickey Rourke has hinted he took steroids for his role in 'The Wrestler'.

The actor has revealed he piled on the pounds for his role as Randy 'The Ram' Robinson in the acclaimed movie - which earned him a Golden Globe award on Sunday - by eating up to seven meals a day and training hard with an Israeli cage fighter.

But Rourke, 56, has suggested he had additional help creating his hulking physique with banned body-building substances.When asked if he used steroids to bulk up, Rourke told Men's Journal magazine: "When I'm a wrestler, I behave like a wrestler."

No doubt about that - expecially considering his age and that he's a 'method actor'. He looked freakish.

I've decided most plastic surgery is a bad idea. It's the same thing with hair pieces. Maybe there are really good hair pieces; but you don't notice them because they are, you know, really good. All I know is that I can spot most hair pieces from 80 feet away. It always makes me wonder if a person is so delusional and paranoid about their looks that they become completely unaware of their ridiculousness.

Substitute "plastic surgery" for "hair pieces," and you have the same concept.

Just earlier this week there was this show called something like When Plastic Surgery Goes Wrong. It featured all different celebs and one of them was Rourke. They were talking about how he boxed and how we had a bad surgery and gotten work done way too many times.

Getting ready to go see a movie. Deciding between Taken, Gran Torino, Push and Slumdog Millionaire.

I'd like to see Gran Torino and will see it eventually. Wife wants to see Taken and I know that I will enjoy that as well. Push looks pretty cool but a lot of people didn't care for it... Why? Slumdog looks like it will be good but I think I'll wait for it to come out on Blueray.

Is Gran Torino sad? Are we better off seeing Taken?

Miss I.
02-07-2009, 03:41 PM
Here's my take, take it for what it's worth:
1. I enjoyed Taken, it has action and sentiment. Liam Neeson kicks serious butt and I liked it.
2. No opinion on Push or Gran Torino, haven't seen them.
3. Slumdog is probably my favorite Oscar film of the year. Well acted, interesting, a bit sad at points, but good.

Of those Taken is good on the big screen, I am thinking knowing what I do Gran Torino is probably a rental. Slumdog is kind of cool on the big screen because of the scenery in India and some of the action sequences.

You might ask Nancy boy his take, he seems to be fairly smart on movies and I tend to agree with him on a lot.

They did, and as the author - i understand Moore's sentiment towards it. But, as far as being a "movie" (a different medium than a book/graphic novel) - i thought it was "good" for being a movie.

Most artists will hate anything that anyone does to their material as blasphemy. Stephen King hated The Shining. But as a movie, i think it did a good job for what the book was like.

You can make good movies from books. Stephen King's Shining the tv movie was bloody awful. That one was faithful to the book. Shawshank, Carrie, Misery, Stand By Me, the Green Mile. Good movies from his books.

Alan Moore has removed himself as a credit from Watchmen, and is giving all of his profits from the movie to Dave Gibbons.
