was Skyline worse than Predators though?


Posted by DRZ on 05-31-2011 12:13 PM:

I enjoyed Predators .... wasn't as good as the previous films, but wasn't that bad.


Posted by Brett on 05-31-2011 02:43 PM:

Predators was better than Predator 2.

The worst thing is, I'm probably going to see it again some time, just to confirm my harsh judgment.

I haven't dared to watch Skyline.

I enjoyed Predators as well. Of course I didn't have extremely high expectations, just a mindless romp of violence and gore.

Predadog.

I have them all, yea it wasn't as good as it could have been. It had the plot of an 80's video game, just dropped on a planet and hunted, I would rather them spend a little effort expanding the mythology, it seems like they have so much to work with but are so lazy. Predator 2 was great I though.

I liked Lawrence Fishburne's character.
I thought the direction and pacing was fine, the script so-so and Brody and the other actors pretty much par for the genre.

Did it add anything startling or inventive? Nope; but then most movies don't.

This is the kind of movie I turn my brain off for and sit back and enjoy. Some movies of this type I can do that with and some I can't.
Everyone liked Transformers, I hated it.
I just could not get past the fact that while shape and size to some degree can be transformed, mass cannot.

You can condense the Empire State building into a smaller mass, but not the size of a Camaro.

Biutiful
Iñárritu could have cut 20-30 minutes from this and would have had a better movie. It's still a very good one, even so.
Bardem was magnificent, as always.
I would have felt like Solomon cutting the baby in half if I'd had to vote for Firth over Bardem or vice versa for best actor.

"Le Nom des Gens"
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1646974/

Cute movie, has the typical french drift...gotta like that, though.

I'd vote it 7.5 (equals imdb rating) because it was a slight romantic comedy, which was still watchable.

Great to watch it with a girl, since there ain't that many movies both genders can enjoy the same.

Bad. Really bad.

.2 out of 4.

Mr Brooks.

Partly great, partly lame, altogether pretty good. William Hurt playing a demon helps a lot. 6.9/10

I just sat through Dr Strangelove again. I chuckled at the strings holding the model aircraft up and noticing a few continuity problems. Still great dialogue though.

4 stabs in the eye outta 5


Posted by Cockney_Rebel on 06-05-2011 10:15 PM:

127 Hours.

3 1/2 stabs in the eye out of 5. I really liked the cutting scene and I was egging him on to cut that tendon. I would have stabbed this one in the eye at least 4 times but the recollection scenes nearly induced narcolepsy. Hearing his bone snap woke me from my boredom.

Spoiler tags much?


Posted by Cockney_Rebel on 06-05-2011 10:34 PM:

Well, the film has been out a while. Don't blame me if you haven't seen it yet.


Posted by Brett on 06-06-2011 03:28 AM:

X-Men: First class


very good. better than the last film definitely. Wolverine's cameo was great, as was Kevin Bacon.


Posted by avert_your_eyes on 06-06-2011 01:25 PM:

I don't know, how you can consider a worn out concept, boring redundant shit which needed 4 tries to get decent as "very good".

2397843892745892 part anthologies can only be labled with "you get what you think you get" and not with objective criteria, because a theme-exploitation is just brainless fuck cinema, which I despise in these days.


A fresh idea >>>>> 50000000000000 billions worth of cgi.

furthermore I can't stand the mean looking faces of the usual "hollywood bunch" anymore, except I would be allowed to puke between their bleached, soulless teeth.

An home-made anthology ala Alien is still quite fine with me (also the quality loss is terryfiying again) but a comic, manga, youthbook adaption just disgusts me beyond belive.

fucking disgusting people ..

you take stupid shit way too seriously and are argumentative for the sake of being so. It's like a troll minus the entertainment value.


Posted by avert_your_eyes on 06-06-2011 03:39 PM:

or you just can't accept, that some of your likes are dumb and disgust other people beyond belive.
