forest gump = the cinematic version of coldplay
both there. Umm, I really dont like the Matrix or its 2 sequels.
The druggy party scene is cringe enducing.
Natalie Portman's character is utterly annoying.
The bit about him being on medication seemed tacked on as an afterthought, to make it more 'topical'.
It's like 'Quirky American Indie Film By Numbers' really.
but I agree with all of those things. The bit where Natalie Portman does a 'crazy' dance makes me feel sick.
is great in it though. But then he's always great, 'cos he's Sir Ian Holm.
i was distinctly underwhelmed by garden state. it seemed to tick all the 'indie film' boxes and leave me feeling absolutely nothing.
Sin City really was a bit 'meh'.
I'm not really a Roberto Roriguez fan actually. Desperado is bunk.
but Once Upon A Time In Mexico really really sucked
I've never been able to sit through the entirity of Desperado.
Once Upon A Time In Mexico has Enrique Eglesias in it. That's all that needs to be said on the matter.
I quite like Dusk Till Dawn actually. But then that's a Tarantino script so it would have been quite hard to cock it up really.
Mind you, Kill Bill 2 was a bit bunk and all.
Tried too hard to be wierd, had nothing to hook me in. Awful nonsensical drivel.
I LOVE I Heart Huckabees.
You are awful nonsensical drivel. Yes.
I liked I Heart Huckabees. I really guffawed during bits of it.
Look above! It's Bamos!
I cast thee out.
Good call on Gump though.
I love Fargo, it's in my Top 5 films Of All Time.
The relationship between Marge and Norm is my favourite on-screen depiction of Romance in the history of cinema. He wakes up early, to make her some eggs!
has been mentioned a bit recently, I think that sucks. I said that Magnolia sucked the other day, that pissed someone off. Sixth Sense is possibly the worst film ever, though
M Night Shyamalan is a curse on cinema.
The Village! Christ on a bike that was bunk. That's 3 uses of the word 'bunk' in this thread sorry -I need one of them books what tell you other names for words. What are they called? Named like a dinosaur? Theo? Theo-saurus! That's it. Cheers.
Anyway, yes, The Village. RUBBISH. I guessed the 'twist' right at the very start of the film, then spent the next 2 hours going "oh God please don't let that be the twist, please!"
People in the cinema actually groaned when he 'revealed' it.
and was shocked by the twist. But, as has been pointed out, I am rather slow...
an anti withnail club please?
Generally i find i can watch a bad film, even if it's only for the comic effect of a truly crap film (Commando for example)
I can't listen to a crap song for more than about 30 seconds, before i feel like smashing the source of the noise.
Why is this so?
try and convince yourself you're an ironic hipster, you actually love the Scharwz. Join the club.
Where he takes on Fat Freddie Mercury's entire personal army. Me and my mate watched that scene over and over and over again once.
ET when I was a kid, actually I still do.
And I don't like any of the Star Wars films much, they're either too dated or too shit.
I love Fear and Loathing like a fat kid loves cake
Unfortunately I have to question the sanity of anyone who thinks "American Beauty" and "Fargo" are overrated :P
I think that Rocky 4 is the worst Rocky film. Whenever I say that in front of my mates I get shouted down.
"NO WAY, YOU'RE FUCKING WRONG RICH YOU CUNT!"
Perhaps not as strong as that but you get the point.
Rocky 1 owns though....
But not THAT good. No better than Garden State.
On a Coen tip, both The Man Who Wasn't There and Hudsucker Proxy are overrated.
is probably my favourite Coen Brothers. Blood Simple is terrible though, I could barely sit though it!
That's one of my top 3 Coen films!!!
Actually, maybe top 5. Still, for a debut it's freaking brilliant.
What's WRONG with you people?? Why don't you have the EXACT same opinion as me???
although I'm not sure if The Man Who Wasn't There is overrated.
bobster, I think it's a good film, just not worthy of all the 'true return to form for the Coen bros' kinda hype that accompanied it and some of my friends agree with.
I can't believe I put that in quotation marks. Lamest quote ever. And I made it up!
back to back the other day, after having watched neither for ages. wasn't too impressed with 'blood simple' but i LOVED 'barton fink'. john torturro is just excellent.
OF THE MIND!
I'LL SHOW YOU THE LIFE OF THE MIND!
John Goodman = best fat/funny actor currently working in hollywood/still alive
the reason I hold "American Beauty" in such high esteem is that it was a bit of an "eye-opening" moment for me... I saw it before I was ever really "into" films and it was one of the first times I ever appreciated just how much you could do with it as a medium...
Although actually, on reflection, I don't think there's anything I don't like about it :-)
Agree on "Hudsucker..." though - never really got why that's such a favourite with Coens fans.
is like "wow, arent families weird!???" The rose thing was so heavy handed and ridiculous, plus the bit with the bag. Ahhh, im angry just thinking about that film.
I dont like the Lord of the Rings films either. 9 hour geek fest.
I can tolerate!
*Apart from Star Wars*
Cast me out!
are both fantastic films.
try about 12 for the extended versions :D
all complete shite
of the fucking rings. Nine hours of tedium followed by about 14 false endings.
I was telling Moribund the other day; I spent the last hour of that film half risen out of the cinema chair, pulling my jacket on thinking it was home-time.
LOTR is so good! It's brilliant when you're ill and you need something to pass the time. But then again i'm just a fantasy geek
I think it is merely okay.
I've seen that film top polls, and whilst it is ok I'm not too sure why it is so loved
on the sixth sense. tripe.
i loathe casablanca. bogart has one of the most punchable faces in cinema ever.
and Bogart is a legend.
that's what everyone else says :( it's just lost on me, it really is. i think i've sat through casablanca about six times, and it never comes close to enjoyable.
particularly as people say "ooh you remind me sooooo much of that kid in it." Not that i mind that really, shame it was the visual equivalent of Aerosmith or something.
And good call on Lord Of The Rings. 9 hours!! And Harry Potter. And Star Wars. And Spiderman. And...
Well the 'untitled' edit is. I've never seen the 'normal' cinematic version.
nothing wrong with aerosmith!
on the film
and you looking like him
you actually told me when we met! ARF!
completely and utterly without irony.
It makes me happy every time i watch it...
withnail and i is a bit meh.
but then also like almost famous, i dont care what anyone says
I like Almost Famous too.
Not close to SR though...
I don't like Withanil and I very much.
*dons flameproof suit*
I was the one who told you to watch Singles.
I like it....
What's wrong with you?
I'll accept Sleepy Hollow as a mere aberration, but Jaws...Jesus...
How does Jaws 3-D and Jaws 4 work?
"I think we need a bigger bloody boat...again."
All the sequels are shit
Jaws The Revenge (4) is best with it's 'the shark wants revenge' storyline.
For people not swimming away fast enough?
you'd've thought they'd've learnt by the third time...
Jaws and Jaws 2.
Jaws 3 is worst film ever.
Jaws 4 is barely better...
the films 31 years old. If you can't see past a few shots of a plastic shark in the final 15 mins of the film to some great dialogue and character acting then you need shooting.
it looked fake in 1975 too and it was still the biggest movie ever until Star Wars.
what, did you see it for the first time when you were 6 or something and you haven't the courage to re-evaluate it now you're older?
It's the equivalent of writing off an old movie for not being in colour, it really is.
i thought you were looking for volunteers.
They did use real sharks....
But they got edited out...
was actually quite good...
and it has a better poster than the jaws poster.
you thought it was shit way before then due to some genetic deformity or social problem?
That shark is actually real looking. If you'd ever been eaten by a shark while lying on a boat you'd know.
IN YOUR FACE!
She's too busy dealing with the comment I just left on her MySpace! :-D
My work here is done.
Now to go and get my hangover. :-(
singles is great the first time you watch it. but after that, there's little point.
but i saw it in a shop on dvd for Â£2.99
is it worth it ?
i totally agree with monpot about garden state. peter sarsgaard is the only good thing about this try hard look at me i'm oh so quirky film.
and match point. i find its critical acclaim totally unfathomable.
for Â£1.99 in HMV, you need to shop around...
if i was shopping with you i could've bought a dvd and got the bus home
one my own id be left to stagger home in the rain
now i get it ... i blame alcohol
It's worth it for "Waiting For Somebody"
and all the cameo's...
is a much better film, but i kinda like watching almost famous, its sugarcoated but in a good way
anyone who doesn't like it is too sour for their own good.
I've managed to make it this far in life having never seen any of the star wars films, Frankly they look a bit crap.
I didn't like the Virgin Suicides either, It was very well filmed but the story didn't carry much weight.
for "star alongside Nick Moran in"
Surely she'd be your civil partner?
You fuckin my wife? You fuckin my wife? Then who the hell else's wife are you fuckin? You fuckin my wife? Well, my wife's the only one here. Who the fuck's wife do you think you're fuckin? Oh, yeah? Ok.
American Beauty. Over-rated, pretentious and dull.
It was alright....not great...
