    The Last Movie(s) You Watched

    There's a thread for DVDs, but this seems different enough. The DVD thread feels more like a list of DVD editions that have recent;y come out, as opposed to any movie discussion, but this is a way to talk about what you've seen recently and give others ideas on what to watch or not to watch.

    In the past couple of days I watched:

    Devil - I heard mixed reviews about this, and anything with Shymalan's name on it usually gets an instahate. But I thought it was pretty good. Not worth watching over again, but a one time watch is good, as a sorta supernatural "whodunnit".

    Yojimbo - Been playing Way of the Samurai 3 and it got me in the mood to pull out my Criterion Kurosawa box set, since I was basing my in-game character on Yojimbo. Still a great movie, with plenty of funny moments. Toshiro Mifune is easilly the Japanese equivalent to John Wayne.

    In the last couple of days I went on a kick and watched The Princess Bride and Harry And The Hendersons. I hadn't watched either of them in a long time so it was fun to see them both.

    I've watched Source Code - which while entertaining, I think it was a dark mixture of "Quantum Leap" & "7 days" TV series

    "pretty nuts"? From what I've heard it's one of the most gruesome, torture porn and depicts sex with infants.

    How the heck does anyone watch anything like that?

    ditto.

    also:

    The Art of the Steal; Infamy
    Three documentaries. Steal is about the struggle to control a multi billion dollar art collection. Excellent if you're into art history. Infamy is a forgettable grafitti doc. Whites was a glorious trainwreck that I couldn't pull away from. Great trash cinema.

    Time Barbarians; Quest for the Mighty Sword; Conan the Barbarian
    Time Barbarians was an awful 8os barbarian flick. Quest was enjoyably awful: schlocky,low budget, the same actor playing King and his heir (I think the same actor was in the TV series Coach). Conan was to wash the bad taste of Time Barbarians and the 90s Conan TV series.

    the Norseman; Severed Ways: the Norse Discovery of America; Erik the Viking
    Norseman and Severed Ways covered similar territory (Vikings vs Native Americans) with different results. Norseman was a cheesy 70s fantasy pic starring Lee Majors (the Fall Guy). Severed ways was much grittier and will remain a favorite for the scene of a viking, headbanging, to a randomly inserted metal song on the soundtrack. Erik is an often overlooked baseborn cousin to Monty Python and Time Bandits. All three are worth a watch.

    Jarhead: Not what I expected. I enjoyed it's honest portrayal of all the aspects of the lead's military experience.

    I rarely watch movies that aren't at the theater. My latest movie was Green Lantern for the fourth time. I rarely see movies more than once or twice at the theaters but I haven't got sick of this one yet.

    Part of me wants to see this since it's so taboo, but anytime I hear some of the details, it leaves me reconsidering. I love horror movies and have a strong stomach for gore, but this movie just sounds like shock for shock's sake.

    The Giant Claw - an old 50's era B movie about a giant space vulture that attacks Earth. Good way to waste 90 minutes.

    The Count of Monte Cristo - the remake from a few years back.

    Spaceballs - it has Pizza the Hutt! And Barff! What more could you ask for??

    i thought it was about a giant battleship that attacks earth.

    the last few movies i went out to see were thor, x-men: first class, and green lantern. i liked them all a lot, but x-men was by far my favorite of the three.

    the last few movies i've watched either on tv or dvd were easy A, police academy 6: city under siege, and super. easy A wasn't bad, but they really shove the scarlet letter references down your throat. police academy 6 has always been my favorite in the series, mostly because of the mastermind's voice and the scenes at the end where hightower, jones, and tackleberry take on the three goons. super is the most demented, out of left-field superhero movie i've seen, but it's great if you're into that kind of stuff or if you just want to see what dwight schrute would be like as a vigilante.

    I want to see A Serbian Film just to see what all the hub bub is. Ive seen Cannibal Holocaust and Salo 120 days of Sodom (so called shocking) and wasn't shocked at all. I find real life to be way worse than any movie could be. Last film I watched was Fortress (1992). There is good drinking game to get ya wasted in there. Every time D-Day (Jeffrey Combs) says 'Man' take a shot. Nope I haven't tried this yet.

    I enjoyed it, but if you want to see a better version of this character, watch Young Adult.

I also hated the new bike he rode on. Where the hell was Grace? No Penance Gaze, etc.

    Also, the 3D was barely noticable, as it was converted to rather than filmed in 3D.
    I thought this movie was actually fun unlike the first one.

    Ghost Rider 2

    As someone who didn't like the first one, but likes the character & a lot of Nic Cage's performances(although these days, for every Bad Lieutenant, there's a Bangkok Dangerous & Kick Ass), I went into this movie hoping to have a good "turn off your brain for 90 minutes" time. At least that's what I was led to believe I might have by some. Unfortunately, for me, this movie was horrific. I remember not liking the first movie, but it was so forgettable, I don't remember why. In fact, I'm usually a nut about continuity, but I didn't even know this movie contradicted a lot from the first one until someone told me. On the other hand, this movie's crappiness was etched into my soul. If I had known that the guys behind the Crank movies & Jonah Hex(do they need to have someone fighting on a different plain of reality or visually impaired in every movie?) as well as David Goyer(he is only mildly successful when teamed with a director with some talent) made it, I wouldn't have bothered going. It was also sad to see the extremely gifted Idris Elba stuck in his second crummy Marvel movie(although Thor was only flawed, this movie was an absolute turkey imo) and guilty pleasure actor Christopher Lambert make a mainstream comback in this. I will say Cage looks like he either had a blast making it or was coked out of his mind. Too bad I wasn't while watching it.

    Similar character but Bad Teacher was an R-Rated sitcom while Young Adult was more of a depressing drama with hints of humor imo. Young Adult had some suprising depth(I'm not entirely sold on Diablo Cody), but Bad Teacher is a lot more enjoyable I think.

    I love Nicolas Cage!!! I know that's not a popular thing to say, but even in a bad movie he's still worth watching imo.

    Rampart: A limited release cop drama with Woody Harrelson as "Bad Lieutenant"-lite. The cast was strong and the performances were good, but it wasn't something we haven't seen before in much better movies.

    Project X: This movie had its moments and I'm kinda on the fence with it, but its general ugliness as well as the extremely cliched "happy ending" lead me to say it's not worth seeing unless you want to see some bland scenes featuring unimpressive topless girls.

    Gone: I think this movie is a great thriller(whose trailer unfortunately gives away too much) with too many red herrings & an extremely anticlimactic ending. While those flaws almost ruin everything that came before, I feel there's enough here to warrant a viewing.

    John Carter: I think this movie is sooo much better than the lousy advertising campaign would lead you to believe. It is a tad slow in the middle and the lead actor, at times, suffers from what I felt Chris Evans did in Captain America(his performance is a little stiff and he isn't as charismatic as he should be), but otherwise this movie is a fun & exciting adventure that looks exactly like something out of the 80's if you exchange the "cheese" for better special effects.

    Great film. Also liked the follow-up too: Sanjuro.

    Unfortunately, the last film i saw was Transformers DOTM. Awful film...
