Movies

Yeah, so I saw a lot of movies this weekend.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age - Mediocre, at best. Slow and dragged on. Shorten it to 2 hours and it's golden. It's not, so it fails.

Michael Clayton - Amazing. Everything about it is awesome. However, it's VERY complex and mind bending. You have to think, so be prepared. I still feel like I'm missing key details of exactly what happened. Gotta see it again.

Across the Universe - Perfect is one word that comes to mind. It just works. And, contrary to many people I bet, the movie is best viewed sober. Trust me.

I saw it and it's been a while since a movie made me laugh out loud that much. I know it is stupid and you have to accept some pretty out there plot points to roll with the action movie part of it, but the characters are so sweet and funny, I just accepted it and enjoyed. I think it might actually be a cleverly disguised chick flick.

So I was looking through my DVD's last night and decided to pop in Nighthawks with Stallone,Rutger Hauer, and Billy Dee Williams since it had been quite some time since seeing it.

Doesn't hold up too bad for a 25+ year old movie,a couple of minor holes here and there but still quite entertaining,and the subject matter of terrorism on American soil definitely hit a little closer to home.

I watched Sunshine last night, the sci-fi flick with Cillian Murphy. I thought it was quite good, although there were flaws. But, the visuals alone made this a worthy watch for me. The transition 2/3rds of the way through the movie didn't really flow, and seems to be the primary complaint by reviewers. I would recommend it though, as I stayed pretty locked in throughout the movie.

Last night I decided on Clay Pigeons,one of my favorite dark comedies starring Juoquin Phoenix,Vince Vaughn and Jeanne Garaffalo(sorry for the sp?).Probably my favorite Vince Vaughn role as he plays Lester Long an outgoing yet strange cowboy with a secret.

I won't give any spoilers because if you like these actors and you like dark comedy,put this movie at the top of your list.

Do you remember who played Lindsay's Wagner's boss?

None other than Jamie Gillis,the pornstar of years past,I thought that was interesting with Stallone's past and all.

Seems like the consensus is it starts strong, but the action stuff is putting people off [including, possibly, one noa].
Sorry I missed this. Yeah, I would definitely say the action was the only thing that lowered my opinion of the movie, not because it wasn't cool or funny (it was both); the action scenes just went on way too long IMO. But the very last scene is still a hilarious dialogue between Rogen, Franco, and Danny McBride that was actually my favorite part of the movie. I would still give the movie a good grade overall, I just thought it could have been tightened up a bit.

I watched "Son of Rambow" with my 10 yr old son tonight. (Yeah, a bit early. It comes out on DVD August 26th)

I liked it, he absolutely loved it. It's a bit slow in the middle... but the ending was great. Sappy as hell, but worth it.

Synopsis:
Quote:
Writer-director Garth Jennings and producer Nick Goldsmith, who as Hammer & Tongs have made music videos for such groups as Fatboy Slim, Supergrass, Blur, and REM, follow up their 2005 film, THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY, with the charming indie SON OF RAMBOW, a love letter to the movies. A success at such festivals as Toronto and Sundance, SON OF RAMBOW stars Bill Milner as Will Proudfoot, a shy, reserved young boy who is different from the other kids because his family is part of the Brethren, a religion that shuns the outside world, not allowing him to have friends at school or to watch television. While in the hallway in school one day because he can't watch an educational film in class, Will gets into a fight with Lee Carter (Will Poulter), a tough kid who gets into trouble all the time. Lee forces Will to help him make a homemade version of the Sylvester Stallone film FIRST BLOOD, but after watching the original, Will is captivated by the movie and writes his own sequel, casting himself as the son of Rambo (he misspells the name of the character). Will and Lee use their imagination and lots of grit to get the project off the ground, bonding as only blood brothers can. But soon the entire school wants to participate in the movie, including ultra-cool French exchange student Didier Revol (Jules Sitruk), jeopardizing the integrity of the production as well as Will and Lee's growing friendship. Milner and Poulter, both making their feature-film debuts, are engaging as the lead characters. Jennings sets SON OF RAMBOW in the 1980s, before cell phones, digital cameras, and YouTube changed the way people communicate. Amid a soundtrack that includes music from such seminal period bands as the Cure and Depeche Mode, the two young boys learn about family and friendship, jealousy and ego as their carefully controlled worlds threaten to implode.

Thats too bad. Franco, Rogan and Apatow go all the way back to "Freaks and Geeks". Great show if you have never seen it.

Tropic Thunder


great ****ing movie, funniest and smartest since South Park...Stiller's best

there are moments when the movie is totally unhinged...that is so rare, when the absurdity seems to overtake the movie....the last 40 minutes were awesome, each character simply losing their minds, but in unison....

Downey's performance is god damn brilliant, imo...his expressions are priceless, his face shifts constantly...all those close-up scenes at the camp at the end, when the actors are in the dark and only lit by a faux-camp fire light are great, and Downey just freaking off the hook, he deserves a nomination, honestly

he makes everything look easy, but think how hard that role was to do without simply becoming racist blackface.....

Downey is the best actor living, i think...hope he stays off drugs and starts cranking out movies....

compare the fight scene, and the character development, at the end of Tropic Thunder and Pineapple Express to understand just how one movie is brilliant and one is basically a hack job b-movie....
