Not a new movie (yet) but heads up from QD:

The Time Machine (2002) international trailer

Which got me to:

The Time Machine II - Atonement (2010) Conceptual Teaser Trailer
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEqzFjTVtXg

The original was rated 28% by Rotten Tomatoes - hmmmm:

durgldeep, i will check "the time machine".. it looks good from concept art point..also as inspiration.. I see some steampunk style things there Smile

matthew, i understand what you mean about the story buildup. How much do you like anime? generally, japanese anime is good on stories, I watched next one after part and couldnt stop.

Check "Getbackers". "Cowboy Beboop" is sweet for space/science-lovers Smile Too much series to list all I like.

Disst, interesting...
Tomasis, glad u like.
Hmmmm... not really a fan of animie - but that could change. Smile

Just heard about Tangled...
First two trailers make the third one redundant (?)...
Second is most revealing re characters/plot imo...

Have to check out tangled and the time machine.
Saw the town and it was so and so. Jeremy Renner was great though.
Tron had a great soundtrack and that was all. Hoping for the movie true grit which haven't had it's premiere here yet.

But there is so much great movies from the 60's and 70's that I have to watch. Liked peckinpahs movies. What great oldies do you guys recommend?

Some 'old movie talk' - Sumaleth, maybe change the topic title to "Random
Movie Talk" (or just "Movie Talk")? If not, no worries; just a bit awkward
posting to two topics (well, guess we'd need another movie thread)...

Returner, re 60s/70s first one that comes to mind is One Flew Over the
Cuckoo's Nest (thought I posted this upthread but nope, in another topic...):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_Flew_Over_the_Cuckoo%27s_Nest_%28film%29

Not a big movie goer so I've been catching up (too)... Didn't know who Heath
Ledger was... very powerful acting in Brokeback Mountain and vaguely
recalled he's in (the forgettable) The Four Feathers. Just watched it again;
very convincing performance - wasted. 41% from Rotten Tomatoes (better
than expected)...

Yeah flew over the guckos nest is great but I mean more unknown classics that you easily miss. Like great thrillers and action from the 70's and early 80's.
Yeah Heath Ledger was great what a waste that he od'ed.

I think the movie thread as it is now is very general and works pretty good if you ask me, just my opinion though.
Intentionally it was to discuss new movies that was just released but I rather have it so that we can give eachother tips about movies generally, whether we like them or not and such.

I usually discuss movies with my brother, lol not sure we have the same taste these recent years though, lol.


Tomasis, yea I like anime, "death note" was awesome which was suggested by Sumaleth in that Dexter thread we had way back.
Think I favour "Ninja Scroll", and that Evangelion was pretty cool back in the day.
Favourite genre these days for me is probably "Thriller", horror movies have become to obvious.


////
////
////

Saw "The Experiment" the other day and it was ok. I however saw that german version "Das Experiment" some years ago which in my opinion was much better. This new version of Experiment didn't get that psychological as the german version was.
It might have been that the participants in the german version was mixed male and female, in this new one they were only male.
...Hmm guess it was many years since I saw that german version though.

Sumaleth, thanks! Smile

Returner, yeah I'd like to see those forgotten/overlooked classics too. Likely
have seen more than I remember... the ones that stick in my head are: Fanny
and Alexander; Nikita (original version); Raise the Red Lantern; The Cook, The
Thief, His Wife and Her Lover - not typical action/thriller stuff, I guess.

QD, I agree. Smile

"Hellraiser, hellseeker"
I think it was released in 2002 and I haven't seen it since the release so it was real pleasure to see it again, it is a real awesome movie. He goes through this weird dreamstate and hallucinates and has a constant headache. The movie resembles in some parts "Jacobs Ladder" if you guys have seen that one.
The full movie is here in this link, lol spanish or portuguese subtitle though hehe.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZoXMTCwmrms

Luckily I found an old dvd at my parents place of Hellraiser, hellseeker.
Used to collect horror movies back in the days. Smile

Think my Vhs (Pal) collection was way bigger than my dvd collection ever was though.

matthew, i will check "das experiment" ..watched ninja scroll recently.. enjoyed of it.. forgot this all totally.. cool characters there ..have you seen "hellsinger" anime?



i like drama movies and other well made movies
.
recently i watched "leaves of grass". Much better than I expected. Solid script. Watching the movie, it reminded me of "little miss sunshine" and "wackness" which I like quite much. It is kind of films I search in American movie industry.

I recall another movie. I dont remember the title. It was done from 90s or maybe 80s. There was Kerouac feeling, quite anarchistic.

However through googling term "anarchistic movies" I found a interesting director called Marco Ferreri. He made a movie "Dillinger is Dead". It looks interesting
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sGWzfHfnMc

I guess there is much hidden gold in bunch of old movies, im thankful that google exist Smile



Luis Bunuel "Un chien andalou" is a classic! "La passion de Jeanne d'Arc" year 1928 is great one, watched this several times.

I think I will make the list of movies so I will not forget anything.

"das experiment" was good.. it was long time ago when I was thrilled so much myself

"The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus " is wonderful movie! Terry Gilliam is my man! I must check all his movies again. (so I far seen his movies but I forgot them all. That is Twelve monkey, Brazil, Monty Pyton, Fear and loathing in las vegas etc)

"Spartacus: Gods of the Arena" i know here is movie thread, though i want add a serie which is so crazy. Much sex, blood & violence. Also good reference to study surroundings in Roman times. errm, also blood spills

Love and other drugs. Tasteless and ocasionally funny. Rewatch Jerry Maqguire instead!
Green Hornet. Hip cool but in the end its a rental. Seth Rogen has no charisma if u ask me. His sidekick Kato has some screen presence though.

Been watching to much bad movies lately. Damn that discount see 5 movies for price of 3 card. Whats kind of exciting though is how good the new epson projector that will come out in march will be. 3lcd projector with a 1:1000000 contrast. I'd by it four a quarter of the anounced 6k price.

127 hours was visceral and GREAT atmosphere. Boyle at his best is just a fu****g master at tempo and pure adrenalin rush. LOVE IT.

His best is just wow but then there is some more mediocre parts.
Like the movie sunshine was also great but it just didn't hold up all the way like trainspotting did, if u ask me.

Anyone seen True Grit??

Didn't click with me. Felt like i was conned into watching a USA Original. Despite good acting. Westerns from 40 years ago are more exciting.

Saw true grit. It didn't click with me either (pun intended).
What do you mean by watching a USA Original? That a tv serie?

I couldn't stand the way they talked. Matt Damon was completely outmatched by the kid in the movie. He said in an interview that when he hasn't done his research properly for a movie he performs badly.
He should just be focusing on improving the basics for god sake. Research is the last thing that guy should be worrying about.

There should be a law against bad actors like Will Smith, Matt Damon, Clooney who never stop poisoning movies. God bless the Razzie award.

Just felt low budget is what i mean. Like its trying to be more of a story than it is. I didn't have a problem with acting. Did however feel like accents were at times a carecature.


Something i did just enjoy a lot was 2008 Ip Man. One of the best Kung Fu movies imho. Then watched Ritchies Sherlock Holmes again, and noticed similarity in the boxing match to moves in Ip Man. A quick search reveales that it is indeed chinese boxing and R.Downey is a Wing Chung practitioner.

Anyone of you that have seen "Salt" with Angelina Jolie? I kind of liked it, it had that "Wanted" feeling over it. You get to see Angelina Jolie get crazy and smash things, I don't usually like Angelina though but somehow Salt worked for me....
It is kind of funny though because action movies have turned into superhero stuff all the time, did you guys notice aswell? Almost every scene is defying gravity or up in the air stream rules, it is entertaining nevertheless.....

Solitary Man with Michael douglas was okdidoki. Douglas has this magic ability where he can lift any half ass movie up to a watchable level.

Man I just saw Hard Rain and I fast forwarded to all the drama with douglas and that Japanase guy. One line; "He was only 28 years old" (after douglas partner died) with that music in the background was better than all the
action scenes put together in that movie.

It's like that movie predators the best scenes to me was when that girl talked about what had happend to arnold; "that a team of blabla went in to the jungle and only one came out alive"....Great way of getting the viewer in the mood.Sadly it didn't live up to it AT ALL.
And of course the samurai sword scene.

What I don't get is why they didn't go with a more unique idea it was too samey. Afraid of originality? To uncertain to invest in something new?

Salt didn't do it for me quintus. At least it was better than the tourist.
Angelina Jolie is adequate at best if u ask me.
Yeah there is a lot of defying gravity stuff in action movies but the only guy who does it as it should be done is Michael Bay.

I hereby rename this thread the Returner thread.

Anyway I saw the adjustment bureau.
Exciting stuff, really exciting. Only drawback was Matt Damon. One scene in particular where he actually hit his mark as a good actor was depressing. You could see he was trying to freeze time and get back to the feeling he had seconds ago, of course with no result.

The scene stealer was Terence stamp (wall street, wanted) Matt Damon got pissed when Terence acted a scene majesticly and then lowered the level a bit crudely before passing the ball off to Damon. You'd think Damon would be used to that by now.

In the end though it felt like the big build up towards the end didn't really come through, you felt a bit cheated.
But anyway that's nitpicking up until that point it was thrilling and original. Go see it! Even Damon couldn't sink this one.

I liked it. Although it is kind of samey, in all of thoose movies some hitman is chasing Bourne in a new cool place. But it works. And Matt Damon doesn't have to act much.

Yeah I might go see sucker punch to. Like what the director zack snyder did before. Great visuals/mood. Saw watchmen yesterday (he directed) and it was cool. That Dr Manhattan I could strangle him in the end.

Do you work in the art field Quintus or are you studying art?
I'm looking at different educations right now as the apply deadline is getting closer. Would be nice hearing some of your thoughts about it.

Ok so I saw "Sucker Punch" yesterday but I was really disappointed, not gonna reveal too much if you are gonna see it Returner, excited to see what you think about it.
Agreed about the Watchmen ending, the moral was very strange with Manhattan changing his mind.

I don't do anything art related these days, my site and posting here is only sparetime project for fun. But yea I do study, not art though.
When's the deadline for school applications? late April?
It's very hard to give advice about education these days, seems like gamble to me because the selected field can change when you graduate, very strange world we live in.
I just started my education back in January.

Harry Potter Deathly Hallows part 1 was awesome, have you guys seen it?
It had this dark apocalyptic tone over it, real awesome.

This particular animated scene was real sweet:
"The tale of the three brothers"

Yeah maybe The Watchmen ending was faithful to the comic boobs. Anyway I didn't like it. You know what's the point with superhero movies if the good guys don't win clearly. I'll watch CNN for tough reality.

Harry Potter cmon now! how can you watch that? Maybe for the cgi then.
Watch the movie Pandorum if you want a good scifi. Really surprised me.
Medium budget but quality scenery and scary and exciting. Should be a strong 3 in ranking but it's a scifi so it sneaks in for a 4.


Decided to study Landscape architecture think it could be perfect for me.

Brooklyns finest was an engaging movie.
Wesley snipes is back again. He squeezes in some movies between jailtime. Ethan Hawke, Don Cheadle, Richard Gere. Separate stories between 3 cops in different places in their lives. Good stuff but had the storys been connected and/or there had been more layers to it would have been a classic. Still a decent movie.
