The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
Looked promising but in reality just another zombie movie.
Good movies, slow at times but not quite as boring as expected. Can see why Day-Lewis won the Oscar.
Cheap Thrills--didn't now much about this movie, but sort of edgy and suspenseful, kept my interest pretty much all the way. It's about money and how far we'd go for it.
The Edge of Tomorrow--Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt--SF action, I really thought the action scenes rock on this one, and the story was engaging and funny in parts too, pretty novels story.
X-Men: Days of Future Past--Liked this one too, although I didn't know all the mutants, it was fun to see them rocking out with all the special powers, I thought the Asian gal throwing those time holes or vortexes was pretty cool, good story too.
Juzo Itami's Tampopo
Once Upon A Time In America, Director's Cut.... I was disappointed by how the found footage looked. None of the found footage is essential to the story line. Next time out, I'll watch the shorter version.
probably looks better on DVD! HAHAHAHAHAHAH!
Art Student Confidential
Daniel was fab but, I did not enjoy the movie...
Nah, the found footage looks very foul. Decreasing the resolution would make the characters look even more like zombies....
yes, but since DVD is so inferior to BR I figured the fabulous pristine BR would look so much better than the added footage on BR since BR can't polish the added footage...now in the case of the crappy DVD the added footage would look worse yes but, not as noticeable as on the pristine superior BR.
Michael Nesmith's Elephant Parts
Excellent for it's time...creative, funny, a little topical...holds up really well (much better than Head does)
IMO, the added footage is too grungy looking for any presentation.
I watched Run Silent Run Deep today. The story is lightweight but the pairing of Gable and Lancaster drags the score up a few pegs.
just got my DVD copy will check out the grunge!
It seems like the first added bit was about an hour and thirty-five minutes in.
thanks! we love this movie...
Northwest Passage--1940 pretty good frontier/action film starring Spencer Tracy, etc. It recounts Major Robert Rogers' 1759 raid on St. Francis, an Abenaki village, during the French and Indian War. As Rogers, Spencer Tracy gives a powerhouse performance, King Vidor delivers the directorial goods, and the storyline, itself, is very exciting. A lot of speeches by Tracy meant to rally the men he was commanding, and some homespun humor.
Lucy--Scarlett Johansson is given a drug that amps up her brain power, which reminded me of Limitless, however, this film has a different angle, part SF, part action film. I actually enjoyed it, and was going to avoid it, but thought it was worth the watch. Had some oddball surreal moments as well as Lucy's brain power gets stronger. Reminded me a bit of Dr. Manhattan's transformation in The Watchman. Pretty fun film.
Sin City 2--along the lines of the first Sin City, so if you liked that one, you'd probably enjoy the second one. More or less had the same characters.
The extended directors cut of Sin City is one of the best discs I've ever picked up
watched a couple of Criterion BR over the weekend The Shooting and The Big Chill good stuff.
from Netflix The Snowpiercer recommended
yes! the one with the book...
I still have to see this!
