McCabe & Mrs. Miller is good, moody Western. It's probably not the sort of movie everyone would like. If you do end up liking it, that would be great. It became an all-time favorite for me after just one viewing. Our tastes appear to be a tad different in some areas, though.

Yes it appears our tastes are a bit different. However some movies like Raising Arizona for example still need to move much higher.

Hey, where are you from? I always thought Soylent Green was the sort of film that's widely available. Anyway, it's set in the future where cities are overcrowded, food is scarce and the environment is all messed up. It's a Sci-Fi film, but there aren't really any special effects or anything. It's actually more of a detective story.

If you ever want to know about movies on my list, feel free to ask.

There aren't many films quite like McCabe & Mrs. Miller, especially westerns. It really is all about the mood it creates, more so than just the characters or story. At least to me. There's another western called The Great Silence (1968) that's kind of different. I saw it a while ago, but it's pretty good. Not an happy film, though. Quite a bit harsher than McCabe & Mrs. Miller.

Vampire's Kiss is a pretty good movie. I saw it a few years ago, so I need to check it out again. I honestly think Showgirls is a great movie. Admittedly, I've always been partial to campy/trashy entertainment, so my tastes are more inclined toward Showgirls than the average viewer. As far as trashy movies go, Showgirls is probably my favorite.

Camp Fear isn't gory or crazy like Dead Alive and Evil Dead 2. Nor is it weird like Vampire's Kiss. It is funny, but mostly due to how cheesy it is. If you like bad movies you'll probably enjoy it. The villain in the film is a big caveman/druid. There's also a very brief appearance by a monster in the lake, which doesn't make much sense.

There are a few that have piqued my interest. Off the top of my head I'd say The Avengers and TDKR. I don't expect Avengers to be that great (Scar Jo as Black Widow is just bad, bad casting IMO), but I feel as though I'm obliged towards my childhood to see it. Rises because, even though I don't rate TDK as a masterpiece, I'm still hyped to see how Nolan ends the trilogy and to see if Hardy's version of Bane really does break The Bat. I guess you could throw The Amazing Spiderman into the mix along with any other mindless popcorn film that looks like a good time-waster. No.1 and No.2 would have to be Django Unchained and American Reunion. How about you Shane, anything have you brimming with cinematic expectation?

They're available now, yeah. The Dragon Dynasty has released both of them on DVD and Blu-Ray in the states. But for a while, you had to find either one of the rare US releases or buy them from overseas. I got lucky and found The Killer sitting in a random spot on a military base when I was a kid. In high school, I bought Hard Boiled straight from Hong Kong through the internet. But now you can go to a department store and find a copy in the DVD section. Do you have a region free DVD player? They're pretty cheap over here and if you get one, you can play DVDs from anywhere. Then, you could just import a copy. They're both worth going out of your way to see.

Lets just say that I'm expecting to TDKR to surpass TDK as my favorite film of all time. The only thing that I'm not so excited for is Hathaway as Catwoman. I personally think it was a terrible choice. Then again, I wasn't so sure about Ledger playing the Joker either. As for Bane, I think he's a great choice for a villian. I've always liked his character and I think he's a good follow up to the Joker as opposed to someone more similar to the Joker like the Riddler. I think Hardy's gonna nail the role. What are your thoughts on everything that's been shown about the movie so far?

I've heard so many great things about the hulk in the avengers. It's about time they did the hulk some justice. Ang Lees 2003 version was crap. Edward norton was alright as the hulk, but I feel like there is so much more they can do with the hulk. I heard that mark ruffalo signed a 6 movie deal. He will star in other superhero movies perhaps

Cabin in the Woods is fantastic. Try not to read too much info on it as it will spoil the main surprise. They trick you into thinking that it's just your typical horror flick but it turns into something monstrously huge at the end. It pays great homage to the campier horror flicks and seeing that Evil Dead 2 is in your top 20, I'm sure that you'll really enjoy it. You have great taste as well and I can easily appreciate someone with TDK, Empire, Shawshank, Inception, Evil Dead, and Pulp Fiction all in their top 20. Great taste. I'm counting down the remaining days until TDKR is released (July 20th). It'll most likely turn into my all time favorite film. All I can do is hope.

A reason why it's ranked so high is cause I rank a movie in that year in order of how I liked them. I would rather watch battleship then the hunger games. That's where it's at. Where it's at right now, is not where I want to be honest. What I liked about the film is the action. Also Im a blockbuster person. I typically like movies no one else does. It reminded me of transformers, which I loved. Battleship isn't a great movie, but I found it enjoyable. Plus I think Rihana is sexy.

Yes, I completely agree. It seems we share the same thoughts. A favourite movies list should contain movies you like and enjoy the most overall, NOT movies you think are the best in technological aspects, at least in my opinion. For example: Apocalypse Now is better than Kick-Ass in pretty much every way. So I do acknowledge it's better, but I don't like it more than Kick-Ass. It's a 'favourite' movies list, after all.

Maybe I should check out Shoot 'em Up. Isn't it like Bugs Bunny vs Elmer Fudd only...not? And I've heard it has a (sex) scene very similar to the one in Drive Angry, which is interesting (Drive Angry probably stole it...but I liked the movie, so I don't care).

There should be something on your page like 'shane24 wants to become friends with you!'.

I loved it actually. It's one of those few films that you will either love or hate though. I think the main reason behind all the hate is that people are becoming lazier and lazier when it comes to watching films. Prometheus brings up a bunch of huge questions - some answered, some not - and it really makes you think about everything going on and I've come down to the conclusion that people simply do not like to think while watching a film anymore. That may make me sound like a douche bag, but I think that it's utterly true.

But aside from that, the CGI is terrific and doesn't look cheap or distracting and I highly regret not seeing it in IMAX 3D. As you can see from my picture, Fassbender was my favorite character and his performance was riveting. He's seriously worth the admission price alone.

I'm in the minority by saying that I enjoyed it slightly more than Alien simply because of the performances and the big questions. It also reminded me a lot of the film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

So yeah, you'll either love it or hate it. Just don't go into it thinking that it is a direct prequel to Alien because you'll be disappointed. It isn't quite as great as Aliens but is still a fantastic film. That's my two cents.

Cabin in the woods was unexpected and something very different for the horror genre. I went In kinda confused with the plot and I was blown away. The commercials don't give anything away. I would say yes for a blu ray buy. Sept 18 is the release date for America. Awesome movie all around. Much better than Battleship, I promise.

Any movie that prides itself on hyperactive gore worship in the form of self-disembowelment, inexplicably exploding body parts and dogs being kicked into pieces... yeah... that shit is cinematic gold. A dude that has Shoot 'em Up in his Top 5 (a film which I class as astonishingly stupid, but surprisingly, and unfortunately, bland) has to appreciate Riki-Oh and give it its rightful props.

You know, I actually need to get the Bluray and re-rank the film accordingly.

I definitely agree the camerawork in The Hunger Games was irritating. Hopefully, the new director for the sequel will not use the shaky cam as much as Gary Ross did.

Hey, you might like A Lizard in a Woman's Skin by Lucio Fulci. It's a trippy giallo flick. Not quite on the level of Suspiria, but pretty stylish and weird. You could also try The Grapes of Death by Jean Rollin. It's an odd zombie film. Or Lemora: A Child's Tale of the Supernatural.

Sorry for the late response, and yes, I don't like Spaceballs at all. There is only one moment in the movie that made me laugh, the rest of the jokes are so incredibly lame. I bought the Blu-Ray some years ago because I'm a Star Wars fan, and everyone keeps referencing it. It was a blind buy, and it was a mistake. The movie is such an unpleasant mess. They try sooo hard to be funny, but it looks almost pathetic.

Hope you enjoy it. A couple of the fight scenes kind of blend together, but there's at least three standouts and the sheer balls-to-the-wallness of it all will probably keep you from leaving disappointed.

I'm cool with ranking shorts 'cause to me they ARE films. Just really short ones. Band of Brothers, I'm not sure I'd be comfortable ranking. A short film is a film that's short. A mini-series is a short series, not a long movie, in my opinion.

Why exploit it, though. For numbers?

Exploit was the wrong word. More 'use' to hone the order of my chart (which is still way out of wack). I don't mind shorts, they're just difficult to rate sometimes, which is where my uncertainties lie. It's the fan-made stuff that I dislike having, but I rank them just to see where they fall. If a fan-made film beats out a big-budget feature (assuming I can accurately rank it), you know where you stand.

Not necessarily big on numbers. I've culled a lot of movies from my list and I've refused to add plenty more on the grounds of a foggy memory of them (most I saw as a kid). I did want to max out the DC & Marvel stuff (completionist mentality maybe...?), but some of the TV Movies and old shorts hold little interest. Mainly the old shorts.

On the bright side, at least you have a period of six weeks to read reviews or get opinions from other people so you don't waste your money on a hunk of garbage.

But yeah, End of Watch is fantastic. It's definitely one of the most realistic films I've seen. Since I live a little ways from Los Angeles, I've seen some of the neighborhoods and End of Watch captures those communities perfectly. It's the same on the streets as it is in the movie.

Even as a big fan of the original, I'm still skeptical about Kick-Ass 2. Don't get me wrong, I'm still very hyped, but I don't want to be too hyped. There are some signs that the movie could be good (Matthew Vaughn is producing it, Vaughn wrote the screenplay, Vaughn handpicked the director (Jeff Wadlow) himself, the original cast is back), but there are also signs that it could be bad (Jeff Wadlow's movies don't have high ratings (check IMdB and Rottentomatoes) and there are a lot of new superheroes and some of them look REALLY silly. Maybe it's just me, but I don't know how that could work). We'll wait and see.

Hey Shane,

I checked out Sweet Smell of Success, Throne of Blood and Laura recently. I think you'd probably like Laura - it's got a noirish style like a Double Indemnity or Touch of Evil. Sweet Smell of Success is fine, but forgettable. Same for Throne of Blood, although a Kurosawa fan might like it a lot. Laura is definitely the best of the three.

oh me oh my where to begin? sorry i took so long replying I was as busy as a them bees before you squished there queen. I'm so glad you loved Intouchables you must admit you never expected to laugh as much as you did. Such a great movie makes you enjoy movies and life so much afterwards and yes he is a great actor. I'm listening to skeletons by stevie while I type this. That scene where earth, wind and fire are playing is amazing, I loved the bit where he is shaving his beard into different styles made me laugh so much especially the hitler bit haha. Screw that guy who reviewed it on empire what does he know? What a Piss midget!!!!!
I'm sad to hear that about two little boys but its good to know i will probably wait to watch it on DVD. I can't wait to watch seven psychopaths if you like it then I most definitely will like it. Was it what you thought it would be like story wise?? In bloodlust I think they went to another planet unstated to i've out there lives as vampires. If you get the chance you should try watch ninja scrolls the movie on youtube you will like quite a lot. I really can't quite express my joy for you loving intoucables it feels like I didn't oversell the movie or think it was great just by myself. What else did you watch this weekend??

Hey man, I just saw your comment on my page. I took a long break from flickchart, but now I'm back. To answer your question, I was a bit disappointed with TDKR. That's not to say that it wasn't a good film, cause it was, but I'd been hyping the shit out it for several years and it didn't match up to what I expected. There were just some things about it that brought down. I probably had unrealistic expectations though.

I haven't seen it in about seven to eight years so I really couldn't tell you, lol. It's a Disney straight-to-tv film that's based on the Hollywood Tower of Terror at Disneyland. I didn't add it manually, rather it popped up when I was ranking other films and I said to myself "Oh yeah, I remember Kirsten Dunst was in that one." I don't remember it being that great though. I don't recommend it.

I'm planning on getting it soon though, cause like I said I think it's a good movie, it just didn't meet my expectations. I think my main problem with it was that it just wasn't as tight as Nolan's other films.

I most definitely recommend Fear & Desire. It's a great Kubrick film and was the only one that he would disown later on in his career because he was embarrassed by it (fun fact). I'm not sure if it's available at any retail stores for you in Australia, but I managed to watch the film on YouTube. I'm sure you could find it there.

Killer's Kiss was great. I'm actually surprised at how much I liked it. It's early Kubrick and it's easy to tell, but it doesn't ultimately change anything. Looking at your list of Kubrick films you've seen, you may or may not be on the fence about it. It's in the noir type of genre, so if that floats your boat, then you might like it.

Out of all the Kubrick films I've seen, Killer's Kiss stuck close to the formula of The Killing (and that's not because they both have 'kill' in their names!). Did you like The Killing?

Kubrick's my favorite director. All of his work is fucking fantastic. I wrote a paper on him a few months ago during my first English class in college, and I learned a lot about him that I didn't know before. Fear and Desire is another one that surprised me. I liked it more than Killer's Kiss, but doesn't mean that 'Kiss' is bad.

If you REALLY want to complete his filmography (like I am also trying to do), then I would suggest checking out his short films 'The Seafarers', 'Fying Padre', and 'Day of the Fight'. 'Day of the Fight' was his first (short) film and it is excellent; the same goes for the other two. I'm pretty sure that you can find them all on YouTube like I was able to; Fear and Desire included. It appears you haven't seen Lolita either.

The only two films that I have left to check out of his are Barry Lyndon and Eyes Wide Shut. Netflix should be sending them my way very soon. Streaming on Netflix was the only way I was able to view Killer's Kiss, so I'm unsure of how you'll be able to watch it.

'Darkness' popped up when I was ranking movies and I remember saying to myself: "I remember that this was a terrible movie". I haven't seen it since it was released on DVD however long ago, so I couldn't tell you my current consensus of it. My past self tells me that it's pretty trashy though.

Lolita is good. It's probably my least favorite of the feature films from Kubrick, but it's funny and has a lot of hilarious sexual innuendos as well. Peter Sellers is great but isn't as great as he was in Strangelove. Being a Kubrick fan, you'll still like it.

And to add to the conversation up there, I just watched Barry Lyndon and I can safely say that it's my most favorite Kubrick film. It unfolds like a great book, feels like a great epic, and its length (three hours to be exact) never felt like a drag or anything; I was actually hoping that it wouldn't end. I most certainly recommend it.

That sounds like the plot of a great action movie; I'll do it. There's actually a few stores in my neighborhood that are selling the Criterion Collection version of The Killing that comes with Killer's Kiss inside the box for $20. I think that's a damn good deal. But damn, $4 is tough to beat.

Yeah, thanks for the recommendation. That is my third Bogart film so far. The other two were Key Largo and Casablance. Next Bogart film I'll watch will probably be The Maltese Falcon. One of my favourite scenes is when Curtain and Dobbs see that McCormick guy that swindles him. Curtain says "Let's get him" and Dobbs replies "Let's get him hard."

I was surprised when I first heard that Jim Carrey is going to be in it. I've always like him, so that gives me another reason to go see Kick-Ass 2.

If you were to find a donkey over here in California, you would probably be robbed of it anyways. That's just how it goes with donkeys.

I'm going to actually feel depressed that I won't have any new Kubrick films to watch. Since his films are so great, he's basically spoiled me so that all other films seem crappy in comparison. Since he also applies so much hidden imagery and ambiguity to his films, it feels like I'm challenging myself while watching his movies and I'm also thinking about them; I don't feel this with many of the non-Kubrick films I've seen recently.

Oh yeah, and speaking of great deals, one store by me had A Clockwork Orange and 2001: A Space Odyssey in the same box for only $4.98. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it, so I bought it. I haven't been happier.

I have been thinking of watching some more Kurosawa films, though I think I'll hold them all to being as great as Seven Samurai; I'm not sure if they're that great though. Another director that I was thinking of finishing his tier was Tarantino. I only need two films on there, three including True Romance. He's one of the only few modern directors that I can trust fully.

Oh yeah, I knew it was Trachtenberg. I remember seeing his name in the description of the film on YouTube and I remember him being from TRS (I've only seen a few episodes of it). I read somewhere that he's working on a full length feature film though I'm unsure of what it exactly is.

On another note, I finally finished Kubrick's filmography. Eyes Wide Shut was phenomenal. It's just bittersweet that I have no fresh films of his to watch anymore. Now's the time for me to finish my Kubrick collection! Anyways, here is where his films stand for me:

1. Barry Lyndon
2. The Shining
3. 2001: A Space Odyssey
4. Eyes Wide Shut
5. A Clockwork Orange
6. Full Metal Jacket
7. The Killing
8. Paths of Glory
9. Spartacus
10. Dr. Strangelove
11. Fear and Desire
12. Killer's Kiss
13. Lolita
14. Day of the Fight
15. The Seafarers
16. Flying Padre

This order is sure to change, but this is where they stand for me now.

Hopefully I'll get watching the Indiana Jones movies soon then :) My favorite would probably be Red, but not by much. Blue would be second in the trilogy, Red was my favorite because I remember it having some warmth to it and Blue being a very emotionally draining film throughout even though I'm sure that's what Kieslowski intended. Valentine and Joseph's relationship was something that really worked for me and kept me interested throughout Red also. When I watch it again it could change, but for now Red is top for me :)

There's nothing awful or insulting about it, but there's also little to get excited about.

The Last Stand was pretty damn cool. I think everyone (the critics) are going into it expecting it to turn out like the next Citizen Kane of movies or something. It's just plain entertainment, fair and square. It has a story but it's incredibly shallow. Arnold is fuckin' awesome and the rest of the characters are pretty damn cool too. It's a fantastic 'turn-off-your-brain' kind of flick.

At least you have a great reason to keep visiting the theater every week. I have no idea what the hell Silver Linings Playbook is, but it keeps getting nominated for a plethora of awards. I'll try to view it once it hits DVD.

Personally, I really, really hated Flight. Like with A History of Violence, it's one of those films that I don't really understand why I hated it so much. It focuses WAY too much on Denzel's addiction; it feels like they're hitting me over the head with his problems. I'm not sure how it'll turn out for you once you go to see it though; I guess it's just a film that you'll either love or hate.

I was very disappointed with Killing them softly. The dialogue was a miss for me so I was very bored by the film. It had some cool parts but not enough to redeem it. The acting was really good from Brad Pitt though.

Compliance was interesting in that "disturbing, but can't stop watching" way, but it ended up feeling kind of hollow. The last ten minutes or so feel rushed and awkward and the film fails to make much of a statement about anything other than the theme of blind compliance that is so obviously pushed throughout. Ann Dowd is great in it, though.

As for The Imposter, I was really looking forward to it, and while the finished product is gripping, I couldn't help but feel that something was off about it. I don't consider this a spoiler because it happens so soon, but they tell you that the kid that was found was an imposter right off the bat (within the first five minutes) and even though I've seen that work with some films, it does nothing but lessen the blow of every revelation that is uncovered throughout the film. It begins to get into the family a little bit, which is intriguing, but that cuts off abruptly. Come to think of it, the whole film ends very quickly. By the time it finished, I thought I had another twenty minutes to go. The film is worth checking out despite all my criticisms, though. It's a thrilling ride.

Real Genius is very, very, very "80s". From the soundtrack to the attire to the entire vibe of the film. Personally, I find the occasional mediocre "80s" flick amusing, so Real Genius is okay in my book. It's not a memorable movie, but there's nothing about it that anyone's going to hate (I don't think, anyway).

I didn't even realize how bad his Aussie accent was. I don't know why people would complain of the film's length. It moved at a greater pace than Basterds did and people found that to be more enjoyable. I'm glad you liked it though.

What the hell is Silver Linings Playbook about anyways?

Silver Linings sounds pretty interesting to me now. I'll have to give it a viewing whenever it's released on DVD since I don't think it'll be showing at any theaters around my neighborhood anytime soon.

I just started reading The Walking Dead comics (I am also a great fan of the show) and the dude in my profile picture is a villain in the comics and a villain in the current season of the show. His name is 'The Governor'. He is an evil, sadistic son of a bitch, but is definitely one of the more fleshed out characters I've ever read about in any piece of literature. I just think he's a pure bad ass all while being completely 'spawn of Satan'-ish.

I remember seeing Universal Soldier: The Return as a kid. At the time I thought it was cool, but now I think it's just a piece of junk that is somehow still entertaining. I've heard some great things about 'Day of Reckoning' though. I'll have to check that one out.

Yeah, the same happens with me too. I noticed it awhile ago and, after going to the dude's profile, I noticed that it didn't even exist. So I figured that the reason behind the glitch is since there's no profile and no profile picture to accompany it, then it replaces that profile picture with our own profile pictures.

I think Christopher Nolan once said that the ending to Inception was meant to be completely ambiguous and, thus, open to the interpretations of the viewer. I'm guessing A Matter of Life and Death was also made to be ambiguous. For me, the story is more interesting if the events are all real (and not in his head), so that what I lean towards.

Both films are basically about hired guns who try to get away from a life of crime, but get pulled back into it anyway. A Colt is My Passport in particular has a bit of a spaghetti western feel to it.

Hey, don't make fun of me, lol. I think I either have some form of OCD or perfectionism or something; I can never find the true profile picture that fits my page. I guess I can add some variety into this site that way.

I'm not sure what film is closer to the novel, actually. I remember reading in my Kubrick book that it said that he was fond of the book, so I could assume that his version was probably the most accurate of the two. Then again, I'm not sure if the novel only hinted at all of the sexual overtones (Kubrick's version), or like what you said about the remake in that it puts everything up front. Might be a good thing to investigate that.

I saw you had a distaste for a few movies and wondering if they were in anyway connected. I saw you didn't like Requiem for a Dream or Antichrist. Do you lump these movies into the same feel-bad type of movies and you dislike that? Or do you like them for completely unrelated reasons?

Ok, good. I ask because I have showed Requiem to a number of people and a bunch of them think that it is shock horror such as antichrist and limit it to a don't do drugs commercial which really bugs me. I'm a huge defender of it because I think it dares to have an ending that is appropriate to the situation they are in, and a interesting commentary on greed and "good choice vs. easy choice." Not trying to convert you to back it by any means, I just thought I'd let you know why it is high on my list.

I'm in the same boat as you with the torture porn genre. I don't like Hostel (I have seen it, there is still lots of movies I haven't ranked yet) and most Saw movies. I'm not squeamish, and I don't mind gore when its appropriate. Those movies go out of their way to find ways to get as much gore in to them, which sacrifices logic and plot at times. I know the eyeball scene you are referring to, and it didn't bother me, but my weakness is children and animals. I can't stomach when things happen to them, and that is why I too have sworn off Serbian Film because just reading about it on Wiki I found something I could never handle seeing. I think there is also a baby scene in Antichrist, which is why I haven't seen that.

Anyway, sorry to get long winded. In terms of little known movies, I recently saw Eagle vs. Shark which was pretty good. It certainly didn't blow me away, but you've seen so many movies I think it would be impossible to find one that would blow you away. Its got the guy from Flight of the Concords in it , and I found it interesting because its a comedy without a straight in it, every character is just very weird. Also if you are into documentaries I'd give Project Nim a shot, it focuses a lot on where does being human start and end.

Yes I too like gore, just when its makes sense plot wise, I encourage it. If you are in a sword fight and you cut someones head off, that's fine. That's what happens in sword fights. Zombies biting a neck off, that's what Zombies do.

I'll have to check those two out. I've seen a ton of old horror and monster movies, 50s-70s and haven't gotten nearly all of them on my chart. I've had to work my way though a lot of garbage to find a few gems, and the bottom of my list reflects that. I have found plenty of hilarious camp which is always fun too, but it's definitely nice to have recommendations of legit horror flicks.

Hopefully you like Eagle vs. Shark. I haven't recommended it to anyone before because it is an awkward indy rom-com, so I can see how most people wouldn't like it, but our lists for comedy are pretty close so I hope you enjoy it.

Another movie question for you (I live in a culture deprived area, so hope you don't mind me looking for answers) I'm a big Tom Hardy fan, and it looks like you are a big Mad Max fan. I've never seen them, but without a doubt I'm seeing the new one, but I'm always weary of actors replacing roles. As a fan, what are you're thoughts, and should I have a Mad Max marathon prior to seeing the new one?

Man I love Bronson! I have it 41 on my list. I would be shocked if he didn't do the accent, too. I mean hes changed his accent perfectly for Warrior and Lawless, tweaked it to perfectly match Michael Peterson's in Bronson, and created Bane's, so I have full confidence he could pull off an Aussie accent.

I live in the mountains of the US, probably the most secluded area of the US. They made a movie about how secluded it is here, "Did you hear about the Morgans" with SJP and Hugh Grant. If you haven't seen it, I wouldn't recommend it, it wasn't good, but it's sad that one of the only two movies set in your state is about how boring and uncivilized it is. The other movie is Close Encounters, but that really had more to do with landscape than it being a cool place to live.

Thanks, man! It's supposed to be a cat dressed up like the main character from the television show Breaking Bad (if you didn't know). But don't worry, it'll probably change again tonight! ;)

A Good Day to Die Hard was a film that was so incredibly bad that it was actually pretty damn good. I saw it with four of my friends and we were laughing the entire way through. There are times when the action is so terribly over-the-top that it becomes laughable and is easy to make fun of. As an example, John McClane manages to make a Range Rover sized car grind (like a skateboard) across a divider on a freeway. Since that part was so hilariously bad, my friend and I decided that a game should be made called 'John McClane's Pro Skater 2' but instead of skateboards, there are Range Rovers.

So yes, A Good Day to Die Hard is bad, but if you see it with a bunch of people, it's a great film to laugh it and make fun of its absurdity. Just don't go into it expecting something like Citizen Kane like all of the critics are expecting it to be. It's a "turn off your brain" kind of film.

He makes some really interesting and even entertaining documentaries, most of which have to do with crime, social disorders, addictions and (extreme) religion. You can find most of them on YouTube. The ones I recommend the most are:

- The Most Hated Family in America and (the sequel,) America's Most Hated Family in Crisis. (about the infamous Westboro Baptist Church)

- Behind Bars (about the San Quentin prison, one of the most notorious prisons in America)

- Louis, Martin and Michael. (Louis tries to get an interview with Michael Jackson.)

- Gambling in Las Vegas.

Robot & Frank was just one of those movies that are pleasant enough, but forgettable. I was intrigued by the concept initially and I like Frank Langella, but the characters were underdeveloped and some of the relationships were cliched. I'd liken it to something like Jeff, Who Lives at Home- a film that I thought was a little better, but similar in the way that it was a nice diversion, but not all that special. I didn't dislike Robot & Frank, though. You have to understand that I haven't seen a lot of bad movies, so even if a film is in the 900's it can still be okay (It's not until you reach the 1000's that it starts to get bad!).

And on Bottle Rocket, it was a disappointment. It started off well. I was really digging the first 15-20 minutes, but the movie hit a wall when they stopped at the motel, and it never recovered after that (It's editing was confused and the plot went nowhere). Wes Anderson is all over the map for me. I disliked Bottle Rocket and to a lesser extent, Life Aquatic, but I liked The Royal Tenenbaums and Fantastic Mr. Fox and loved Moonrise Kingdom.

I've heard that The Shield is on par with The Wire. I don't want to watch The Shield in fear of it topping The Wire as my favorite show, lol. I will try watching it sometime in the near future, I hope, to see what all the fuss is about.

Eve's Bayou was pretty good. I had watched it in my Film class at my college last week and I thought it dragged on in some areas. The narrative was also all over the place and a lot of plotlines were left unresolved. Aside from those problems, it was actually pretty good. Samuel L. Jackson is in it and I've come down to the conclusion that he's probably by favorite actor; he's great in everything. So, really, Eve's Bayou has some great acting and some interesting scenes but drags a bit and has a confusing narrative. If it still sounds interesting to you, then I recommend it. If not, then you're really not missing much.

I have never seen sleep away camp, but I am fully aware of its reputation, so that will be added to the list, too. Anytime you see a movie you think I'd like, let me know so I can add it, you're at 100% so far!

Nah, I'm pretty sure he's just a little kid. I know him from YouTube, actually. He ranked the Star Wars and Indiana Jones movies on a video, and I replied to his comment. Then, he constantly sent me videos of the Tourettes Guy and the Nostalgia Critic. I blocked him, then he made a new account and started sending me videos again. I basically said "Fuck Off" which, admittedly, was a little too harsh, and I blocked him again. He's incredibly inconsistent. Even on YouTube. When I looked at the feed of his old account, he ranked the Star Wars and Indy movies on a lot of different videos, but he changed the order of the rankings quite often. Now he's on Flickchart. He probably googled my name or something, because he only copies my comments and rankings. But anyway, I don't think he's a troll.

Hard to say. If I were ranking by favorites, my top 100 would look mostly the same, but there would be a whole lot of films stuck in the 400's and 500's presently that you'd see pulled down into my top 250.
For example, a favorites top ten would look something like this:
1. 2001: A Space Odyssey
2. There Will Be Blood
3. The Big Lebowski
4. Dr. Strangelove
5. Amadeus
6. Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters
7. Planes, Trains and Automobiles
8. The Purple Rose of Cairo
9. Manhattan Murder Mystery
10. Last Year at Marienbad

I think it's worth it. Kill! is a comedic samurai film that sort of plays with the conventions of the genre and the idea of what it means to be a samurai. I thought it was fun.
Also, if you do end up seeing it and liking it, I recommend Sanjuro and The Hidden Fortress (on your list of shame, I see!), which both have a similar tone and subject matter.

Some Mother's Son is the only other film with Bobby Sands I've seen, it's been so long since I've seen it though, I think I saw it last on VHS lol I really liked it. It was a tough enough watch, it's very interesting visually, and Fassbender is terrific. It's a film that could improve on repeat viewings, but for now it felt a little too cold and distant throughout to be up too high on my chart. His last moments in the film was quite emotional though and I might appreciate the whole experience a bit more on a re-watch :) What did you think of it?

Oh my God that was a fantastic film. It might be the perfect action movie. I almost decided not to see it because of the female sidekick, where they typically act as a hindrance to the hero... but this may be the first movie that I've ever seen where she made the action better. My main regret is not seeing it in the theaters. After I ranked it on here I immediately though, "I bet Shane loved this movie."

I don't make it to the theater too much, and usually wait to see new releases until my local store sells their rentals, then I load up on them for cheap, so I'm always over a year late seeing movies, hence why I just now saw Dredd. I see you just watched that movie with the ridiculous title. What did you think? I actually laughed a few times, like "This must be that kissing I've been reading about! This is TOO much!"

So basically exactly what you said, lol. I was incredibly let down by Beyond Thunderdome because I thought it would be like another Road Warrior. It also seemed too much like a kiddie version of a Mad Max movie. I just hope that the fourth Mad Max movie being released next year (with Tom Hardy as Max) will blow Thunderdome out of the water.

All Good Things is ok, but nothing special. Worth watching for Gosling in particular, and Dunst(they have no chemistry together though!), but don't go out of your way to see it. Have you seen Gosling in Half Nelson? That's way better.

I have been to Ireland, from east to west. Connemara, Galway and Dublin are my favourite places from that trip. Would like to go back one day.

Trust was good, unsettling but good. Liana Liberato and Clive Owen give really good performances in it. Sometimes it felt a bit like a 'made for TV' movie though, if that makes sense. I saw it about 18 months ago, but it only just popped up on my ranking screen.

Looks like you enjoyed Lincoln! I am sometimes surprised by what movies do well overseas, like I was surprised other cultures cared that much about US history (or maybe they care more for Speilberg and DDL). I've been told the Lincoln story to death and wasn't excited about seeing it in movie form until I found out the cast and crew. My main hesitation about it is that I hope it doesn't get presented like "look how great America is because of this man" when it really should be "look how bad America was until someone with sense came along."

A thong though mustn't be what I'm thinking of?

I got round to watching The Virgin Spring, thought it was great! You seem to have been checking out Bergman movies lately, how are you finding him? I've really liked most of what I've seen from him so far. Persona was the only one I don't know if I liked or not. I've seen it get compared to Mulholland Dr., which I love, so I was a little disappointed when it didn't really keep me interested the way some other surreal-ish films have. It may need a re-watch though, I've changed my mind many times on films after seeing them a second time.

The bit where he screams 'FAAAAAAAACCCKK' in the bar is still the funniest for me(and I noticed there's a man in the background wearing a T-shirt with 'fuck' on it which made it even funnier) :D

I kept getting distracted by Cage's mullet in Zandalee, it looked like bad extensions and I couldn't take my eyes off it, lol.


Didn't realise Untouchable is also The Intouchables! Been looking forward to seeing it for a while :)

Yeah, comedy is very subjective, I get why some wouldn't really be much fans of Chaplin. I have to say though, I've only seen two of his films, but I really loved both! Heard a lot about The Kid, that'll probably be my next Chaplin film.

Sweet, glad to see you loved Sunset Blvd too! The Apartment and Double Indemnity are up next on my Wilder watch list! I'll check out those other ones you mentioned too! I watched half of Some Like it Hot, didn't really seem like my kind of comedy either, I have a horrible habit of watching films very late at night, if it isn't entertaining me I find myself turning it off, but I try to give them a fair chance. I watched The Raid very late at night, no chance was that being turned off, it was like an adrenaline rush, I was wide eyed by the time it was over lol But yeah, I'll watch the rest of Some Like it Hot some time over the weekend, give it a fair shake, just wasn't really doing it for me first time round.

Heard nothing but great things about The Treasure of Sierra Madre, thanks for the recommendation. There's many things on my watch list, but the ones recommended to me on here are the ones I try and get watched first. Oh yeah, about the spellcheck, same thing with me, when I was replying to you about 'Flavour' is kept changing it to 'flavor' lol

I have seen the Star Wars trilogy, but it's been so long ago I think I need to see them again. I only remember bits and pieces so ranking them would be a bit unfair I think. It's VHS I have them on, so I need to upgrade to DVD or Blu Ray. They're so high on here, I don't know why I haven't bothered watching them again. I have to try and get them soon anyway and get ranking!

Got done watching The Apartment a while ago, happy to report that I loved it :) Double Indemnity is up next on my list of Wilder films!

Yeah, it does make you wonder. A kinda depressing thought that some great films could be forgotten.

Oh yeah, I just thought I'd let you know that Tokyo Story is very , very slow. It took me two watches to love it, the first one left me pretty underwhelmed. Second time though, I was engrossed throughout. I just wanted to tell you so you don't go in with massive hype like I did, could kinda spoil it for you. I hope you love it though :)

Well I ranked this movie 3 times to make sure it was that bad. First off, when I started watching it I confused it with Drag Me to Hell. Secondly, it is supposed to be a documentary, but half way through it switches to found footage style, then it becomes a mess and switches back and forth between them. The lead actress is terrible. Nothing is scary or shocking. As meaningless as the entire movie is, the ending makes the entire movie even worse. Possibly the worst ending ever. It isn't boring like most the movies at the bottom of my list, but it was the biggest mess of a movie I've ever seen. Then again I haven't seen any Paris Hilton movies... Have you been on a Disney binge lately?

Yeah, I can see why going into a movie not knowing what to expect is more fun than knowing what's going to happen. Trust me, I spoiled myself way too much with what will happen in the movie. I read the comics, and I even know some of the things that will be in the movie but weren't originally in the comics. I just wonder how they will do it. Will it be similar? How's Jim Carrey in the movie? Isn't Chloë Grace Moretz too old? I'm hungry for information I guess, lol.

I'd say between 100 and 200 movies. I would add them now, but I don't know where to rank them. I want my Flickchart to be as super accurate as possible, so I'll just wait to add them till after I get a fresh viewing.

I'm actually slowly gearing up to erase my current Flickchart rankings and re-add my watched movies. I've allowed my rankings to get way too sloppy.

I miss those old cartoons, although I was partial to Looney Tunes over Disney. I do agree though, Donald is by far the best out of the Disney bunch, kind of the "why is it always me?" character.

I just watched Rabbit Proof Fence too! I do think, though, I need to watch a documentary on it or do some reading for me to get the full effect of the situation, I was left wanting to know more. With no knowledge of the situation going into it, I had no idea why they would even consider taking them, but when they broke it down a bit during the slide show scene I saw why they'd take them, but don't really comprehend why it was done (I guess the same way its hard to comprehend treatment of Native Americans). Incredible story, though. I do have to say I should never complain about my area of the world being isolated. Western Australia wins that category hands down!

I heard Nolan might be DC's comic book guy all together, too. It actually would make me upset if they both did a justice league movie. They've made a Batman universe completely devoid of super powers and everything has a sense of realism to it, they'd completely destroy everything they've built to do the justice league. It would also tarnish the near perfect ending they gave it. That being said, I do have faith both Nolan and Bale wouldn't commit to something they didn't have complete faith in, neither do anything just for a paycheck. Personally I think DC works far better separate, I'd rather see Jason Gordon Levitt become Nightwing than the Justice League.

But you have them at the top of your list.. how do you feel about it?

Not technically, Nightwing wasn't in Justice League, but Nightwing became Batman though. I'm just saying if they are going to expand on the series I think they should do a solo Nightwing movie instead of doing a Justice League movie. I actually like Nightwing more than Batman in the comics. The way I heard he collaboration happens (which of course at this point everyone is just speculating on rumors) is that Superman is going to find Bruce and tell him he's "starting a team." Which doesn't work for me at all, that is how campy B movies start and that is not what the series worked so hard to move away from. I've read a ton of the Batman/Superman crossover comics, and I enjoyed them, but Nolan's movies isn't the comic version of Batman, it's 100% Nolan's Batman, and that's why I can't see it working.

Then again, I thought casting Ledger was a huge mistake... and Hathaway... so what do I know :)

I didn't know Chopper was sick, or that he has an impersonator! The books do intrigue me(even though I don't really read true crime stuff), I've got a couple of books to get through at the moment but might check out his autobiography at some point.

I haven't been to Canada, but would love to go someday.

Only three cinemas?! That's awful, especially seeing as Hemsworth was starring in it, like you said.
I saw one trailer on TV, and that was enough for me, I didn't seek out any more information.
Poor you, having to watch Adam Sandler instead(I love Happy Gilmore, but lately he really sucks.), no wonder you were pissed off!

I think trailers give away too much these days, like the Dark Knight Rises - I felt deprived of the 'wow' moment in the cinema during the football pitch scene, because I'd already seen it in the trailer. If that had been a surprise, the whole experience would have been perfect. I felt SO exhilirated coming out of the cinema that night!

Yeah, I've seen a few horrors but I don't really like seeing melty faces and nasty gory stuff. I will always give different movies a chance though, never like to rule anything out.
How about you, I've seen some horror on your list, is it a favourite genre of yours?

I have ADHD. Me and regular books don't agree, but I have tried a number of times and can't do it. The pictures in comics invite me right in, though. I haven't really read one in a year, though, last one I read was Game of Thrones.

Believe it or not, I don't like super heroes. I've read a bunch of comics, but for all the crazy stuff you mentioned, it's just too out there for me. Even Batman comics get loopy, and he technically isn't a superhero. That's why I never read a bunch of Marvel, and Marvel movies aren't rated that high on my charts.

I know exactly what you mean about movies that are 'too happy' lol, the really twee films tend to put me off as well.
'Mental scars' is a good term to describe how some horror imagery can have an effect.

I haven't seen The Castle but have heard of it, sounds like something I'd enjoy, I get Aussie humour(although couldn't get into Kath & Kim when it was shown on the BBC), and love Muriel's Wedding and Strictly Ballroom.

I like lots of different comedy, from surreal to slapstick. Haven't heard of Lano & Woodley though. The oldest comedy I like best is probably Laurel & Hardy. Can't stand Mr Bean, but I laugh myself silly at Rowan Atkinson in Blackadder.

Almost rented The Guard a few weeks ago :) I will see it soon, and Perrier's Bounty will go on my watch list as well, thanks!

Ya, that's why I don't do medication, my class mates who used Ritalin became zombies. I am quiet too, but you'd be able to tell I have it because I'm constantly figiting or moving around.

Here's my beef with watching old movies: new movies always borrow and steal from the old, classic stuff, so when I get a chance to see the classics, they seem unoriginal, even though they ARE the original (Blade Runner as an example, everything has been recycled in that movie, from the Matrix to Terminator, so when I watched it I wasn't impressed, and that disappointed me). Point and case was the final scene in Mad Max. As soon as he picked up the hacksaw, I could see it coming. Another movie had ruined the thrill for me entirely, and that upset me. Had I seen Mad Max first, I would have be loving the scene.

I think it climaxed a little late for my likings, but it works as a good origin story, and that just gets me excited to watch The Road Warrior.

Just kidding, Mad Max 2.

Black Mirror is a feature length TV production shown on channel 4 here, written by Charlie Brooker. It's heavy on satire and social commentary, very dark, sometimes surreal and funny.

Brooker is a journalist, satirist, critic, author, he has a lot to say, and doesn't pull his punches in what he writes and the jokes he tells. I really like him.

He's done shows reviewing and commenting on video games too.

I didn't even know Black Mirror was listed on here until it came up on my ranking screen, much like Sherlock.

I always ask for an aisle seat, but nobody listens ever. I personally hate the "do you play basketball?" one the worst. Mostly because I did play basketball in college, so I want to be mad at them for assuming "oh he's tall, there's only one thing he is capable of," but it turns out that they are right! Then that prompts the even stupider "Why didn't you go pro?" question, which then I have to tell them that I wasn't good enough, which is always fun.

And I left out another one, whenever a middle aged or older lady talks to me, she has to tell me how tall her son/nephew/grandson are.

Its funny that they think the how's the weather up there actually is original, and then they bust up laughing.

I really doubt you'd know of anyone, when I say college I don't mean D1 like March Madness and where Andrew Bogut played, I was in D3, quite substantial difference. My college was close to Chicago, so most of my teammates had played high school ball with someone that is now in the NBA, like Shannon Brown and such. And they all knew of Derrick Rose, he was a few years younger than them, but he was like a prodigy to them. I have played against the Harlem Ambassadors, though, they're the sidekicks to the Harlem Globetrotters.

I only mentioned Bogut because, from what I understand, he's a legend to Australia, especially because of those olympics he dominated, but I could be mistaken.

I liked it quite a bit. To give you an idea of how it struck me directly after seeing it, here's a write-up that I posted on another website a few minutes after I finished the film:
"Just had my first viewing of the Holy Motors and it certainly is a trip. As soon as it was over I wanted to see it again, as I'm not sure what it is exactly that I just saw.
Immediate thoughts:
It's entrancing. I don't think I expected to be quite so drawn into the film and much of that can be credited to Mr. Lavant, whose performance is a stunner. I'm not fully decided on the film itself, but at the moment, I think it's endlessly fascinating and unabashedly strange but it never completely came together for me. There are many pieces that work and are interesting, but the episodic nature of the film tended to dilute what I think could have been a more focused narrative. This isn't to say that a film with this sort of structure can't work, it's just that I felt like the film continuously jerked around (more increasingly in the last hour especially), making the whole affair more complicated and insane than it needed to be. Now, I enjoyed the insanity- I thought it made for a thoroughly interesting experience, but scenes like the motion capture sequence, the shooting of the banker, the scene with the chimps or the part at the end with the limousines talking took me out of it and made me step back and reconsider what the film is trying to do. There are many things that it could be about: the beauty and tragedy of the act, the idea of life as an ever-turning, ever-changing wheel, being invented and reinvented again and again, a history of cinema art or something to that effect, identity- the many people we can be. Or, it can be none of those things. What I felt it lacked was a unifying force pulling all of its individual pieces together.
But it's far from bad! There's a magic to the film unlike anything I've seen this past year, an overall feeling of innovation and energy that truly impressed and engaged me. The imagery is superb- at times gorgeous and nightmarish, always dreamlike and otherworldly in the best possible way.
I'm certain that this film is going to ripen upon further viewings, as I'm sure that I haven't even begun to grasp what it is exactly that Carax is doing with all of this."

I realize that's quite long, but I couldn't summarize my feelings for this film in a few short sentences! I gave it 4/5 stars at the time (more as a placeholder rating than anything else) but I haven't stopped thinking about it since it ended and it continues to get better in my mind. Can't wait to see it again!

I guess I get that, but what I'm trying to say is that the structure threw me off a bit particularly with some of it's strange turns. For instance, the accordion scene- as wonderful as it is- I don't know what the point of that was. It seems to just show up out of nowhere without any rhyme or reason and the next scene starts right after it's over. Or the scene where he stops the limousine and runs across the street to shoot a banker who looks just like him. His driver rushes over to him after he's shot, he gets up, she apologizes and then we move on. There were a few moments like that where it felt like the film was being more outlandish just because it could be. Much of it does tie together, but having only seen it once, I thought that didn't excuse all those other sections. Then again, this could all turn around once I re-watch it, and it could all click into place. I want to stress that. One viewing isn't going to do it for this film, and I'm not going to pretend to understand all of it until I see it at least 2 or 3 more times.

And just curious, what is it that you thought the chimps part was about? I keep going over it, but I remain completely baffled by that inclusion.

Huh. That's an interesting analysis. I hadn't even thought of the connection between the banker he plays at the beginning and the banker he shoots near the end. And that chimps analogy makes about as much sense as anything else in the film, I suppose, so I wouldn't be at all surprised if that was, in fact, the intention of the director. I just remember watching that part, throwing up my hands and saying "Why not?!" Nothing seemed out of the realm of possibility by that point in the film.

Run Lola Run was fan(fucking)tastic. It was shown in my Film class and my eyes were glued to the screen the entire time. It has a lot of really interesting action scenes with a very pulse pounding soundtrack. I also like the whole concept of the plot (I won't say anything in fear of spoilers). I highly recommend it if you're able to get your hands on a copy.

4. The Great Gatsby
5. The Hangover Part III
6. Spring Breakers
7. Welcome to the Punch

I just use Ctrl + F and type in "ago" in order to see the most recent comments, lol. I gotta be honest but I chuckled at his weird comment. I don't even know why.

I really like the casting in Great Gatsby and I feel that it'll be a great adaptation of a great novel. I hated the novel when I first read it in high school but I've grown to appreciate it since then. Who's your cousin if you don't mind my asking? Hangover 3 is another one I'm sort of iffy on since it's coming off of something as wretched as Hangover 2. The trailer has given me some hope though as it looks like they have stepped away from the whole "wake up after a hard night of partying and transgender strippers" kind of ordeal. Star Trek looks phenomenal. I'm not a fan of Star Trek but Abrams' remake was great and it looks like he may just outdo himself with the sequel.

I've been looking forward to Evil Dead since around this same time last year. I can't believe that it was only made for about $15 million in this day and age. That's incredible. That price reminds me of how well the first one did based off of its small budget. I hope it succeeds well at the box office.

Sad to hear about Memento. Going into it without any prior information was the experience of a lifetime for me. Someone had spoiled The Prestige's ending for me as well. Only partially, though. Yeah, I've noticed a greater love for Inception on this site than Memento. Inception is more action-packed, glossier and it's all-in-all a great film, but Memento's bleak style just suits my taste better. It feels natural, if you get my drift.

We both love The Dark Knight, so that's a good thing, right?

It's one of the many Woody Allen disappointments from recent years. Scoop's basically a comedy with mystery elements scattered throughout. I kinda enjoyed it 'cause it's a lot of fun, and Jackman's pretty cool in it. The only thing I distinctly remember about it is the ending, so there...

You should watch it only if you've got too much time on your hands. Nothing groundbreaking about it.

I didn't really hate War Horse, it was just ok. There are some pretty bad accents in it, and I expected more than I got, I guess.
I liked the story, Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch(and the charge scenes with the horses are awesome) but felt that Spielberg tugged a little too hard on the heartstrings.....not that it didn't affect me at all, he's good at that.
It shouldn't be as low as it is on my chart, though. I'd probably give it a 5.5 out of 10. I need to fix that. My chart still needs a lot of work, some movies get lost in it and I don't notice!

What movies on my list of shame do I want to see? I got plenty;
- The Godfather part 2. I keep hearing that it's supposed to be better than the first one.
- Treasure of the Sierra Madre and The Maltese Falcon. A couple of classic 40s movies I still haven't seen.
- Rocky. I'm not a fan of sports movies, but I feel like I simply HAVE to see it. I think it's one of those movies where if you haven't seen it, you'll get bombarded with "YOU HAVEN'T SEEN ____?? WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?!". I feel like everyone has seen it but me, lol.
- For a Few Dollars More. I watched TGTBATU first, then AFOD, but I still have to see FAFDM.
- North by Northwest. I've seen the most popular Hitchcock films (Psycho, Rear Window, Vertigo) except this one.
- Lawrence of Arabia. I dunno, it sounds fun to make this long as hell epic my 500th movie.
- Never Say Never Again. The most "official" unofficial James Bond movie starring Sean Connery. Although it's apparently pretty bad, lol.

After the final frame I just stayed staring at the screen and let the credits wash over me. I had pins and needles because I hardly moved in an hour and forty minutes. :)

For me, the only Farrelly brothers movie that has held up well over the years is Dumb and Dumber, and that is mostly because of Jim Carrey. Movies like Kingpin, There's Something About Mary and Shallow Hal all seem so mediocre to me now. Evidently, most moviegoers agree since it's been a long time since the Farrellys had a decent hit.

Aww yes I do love Groundhog Day a lot, it's just a classic. I tend to rank movies on how much I enjoy them and how the experience has an impact on me, rather than focussing on technical stuff, although that also plays a part.
I want to rewatch it soon, just to see if it really deserves to be my number one.

My Kitchen Rules - is that a cooking show? (funnily enough I'm watching Masterchef Australia at the moment, Heston Blumenthal is the guest, they're making hamburgers, it's making me hungry!)
Mischa Barton seems a bit stuck-up now.......when she was in Lawn Dogs she was only about nine or ten, and her performance was quite natural, she had a great screen rapport with Sam Rockwell.
I first saw her as Marissa in The O.C., but didn't really take to her. She's better in Lawn Dogs.

I have seen a few plays, my cousin used to be involved in stage productions behind the scenes, so sometimes I'd get to see her work(and once helped her out when she worked for the English National Opera :))
Haven't seen anything for a while though, I do like theatre, and have seen musicals in London too. How about you?

Okay. I ask because Weerasethakul is one of those directors who doesn't really have a film that I can point to as a good entryway for someone new to his work. I love everything I've seen from him, but his movies are all uniformly slow-paced and experimental to some degree. What I'm saying is that he's an acquired taste and a lot of people can't stand his style. I'm not trying to scare you off it. I just have no idea how you're going to react to it. I think you're pretty open, though, so hopefully you like it!

And yeah, his name is long! Westerners (or anyone who isn't Thai, really) tend to call him "Joe" and he's welcomed the nickname.

I actually don't know any of Louis C.K.'s material! Bill Hicks material was quite dark, acerbic, sometimes sarcastic, with a lot to say on popular culture and consumerism. Revelations is a good show.

No worries on the length, I was hoping to get an in depth answer!

I read the novel and loved it. I consider the adaption true to the book. Squid or no squid, there are things you can get away with in comics that you just can't do in movies. I don't know if you have seen or liked 30 Days of Night, but they kept the ending the same, and the move that kills the bad guy is really cool in comics, but on the screen it looks silly, to me at least. It is a dense story, and your experience mimics mine - trip one I had sky high expectations, probably unreachable. Second time I figured I wouldn't like it again, and I really enjoyed it. The characters don't bother me, mainly because I don't think they are meant to be liked, they are normal people with flaws. Rorschach is just a beast though, perfectly done.

I asked about Snyder because I though he was perfect for 300 and Dawn, but I don't think he was a fit for Watchmen. I think he had so much success with 300, they thought he was going to be THE comic guy. But he is a style over substance guy, and I think he struggled with pacing and (like you said) music. He made so many "mini-music videos" inside the movie, I felt like it dragged it down.

Superman? I'm reserving judgement. I'm hesitant to see a gloomy, troubled take on him, which the previews hint at. But Nolan is attached, so that probably means good story. Snyder means good action and style. It could be top ten, who knows.

I said that they were two of the best cinema experiences I've had in recent years, especially Avengers where it was a big, packed cinema and everyone was laughing. But I said I was choosing TDK because I love Batman and Heath Ledger more than The Avengers. :)

I don't really know if anyone could have gotten away with a squid. I wasn't trying to say he isn't talented enough, I mean I just don't see it working for any director. I think most audiences wouldn't be happy watching 2 and a half hours of plot building up and then BOOM giant squid.

I really wasn't trying to come off negative towards Snyder, and hope it didn't sound like I was bashing him, because I've seen 300 about a dozen times, and Dawn about the same. I think he did do a good job with the film for the most part, I just thought the film wasn't his format, much like I don't see Tarantino or Aronofsky adapting a James Sparks novel (although if they did I'd probably watch it).

And I only recently learned that the Guardian movies even existed, and never put it together that Sucker Punch was his movie. I'll probably see them both now, though.

Also, have you considered the Man with the Iron Fists? I don't know if you like Kung Fu, but if you do it seems up your ally.

I haven't seen Kung Fu Hustle, but I have seen Kung Pow, which I believe is along the same lines, most is a real movie redubbed, the rest is an actor imposed into the movie. I liked it, I thought it was kind of clever, so I'll have to give Kung Fu Hustle a try.

Some times Man with the Iron fist tries to be more than a no think action flick and it drags, maybe that's why he didn't like it. But when it gives in and is ruthlessly violent I really liked it. Did you like JGL's one liner at the end of Premium Rush? I laughed pretty hard, but I'm not sure if it was legitimately funny or overly silly. I'm going to have to check out Kung Fu Hustle.

I'm not an angry person at all, I'm very, very tolerant in fact but if someone pushes me far enough then I can be a bit scary I guess. But if you asked my friends and workmates, they would probably say I am too nice!

Angry comedians make me laugh though, and I can't stand the guys that have a script all worked out and just repeat jokes, there has to be some real feeling behind the words for the routine to work for me.

I had a similar reaction when I first saw Stalker. It was a tough watch (As brilliant as I think Tarkovsky is, his sensibilities wear me out) and I kinda understood it, but also kinda didn't, so I was scratching my head over most of it. It's aged very well for me, and so it finds itself comfortably within my top 100.
I still can't say that I understand it fully, though.

I still need to watch some clips of AFL, I've been to busy to do much of anything recently, though. I've been on the road a lot, so I've listened to a bunch of music and it brought up this question: Have you ever heard of Empire of the Sun (as they are Australian), and if so what do you think?

YAY :D I'm happy you liked Lawn Dogs!

The only complaint I would have about it is the way it unravels towards the end, and how Devon behaves, like you said.
The awareness of why Trent has to drop her off outside the gates could be just the fact that he mows the lawns, and she knows he's frowned upon for simply being within the community but tolerated because he's doing a menial job for them.

I would put her 'throwing Trent under the bus' down to her being in shock at witnessing Tracker's demise(plus it's also a handy plot device I suppose). Although she didn't have a problem with the chickens!

Also, when she told her parents about the creep in the garage and what he did, they brushed it off as 'playing' so maybe she didn't consider what they would think of Trent in an innocent situation with their biased opinion of him?

I loved the reveal of what had been happening with the stolen lamps, and the 'this is MY river!' scene makes me smile every time.

Rockwell's bridge scene is funny. It may have been too much for you but it doesn't bother me at all, ha. ;)

I only recently saw The Green Mile, he was so chilling as Wild Bill!

Empire of the Sun wasn't ever big here, I had to go out of the way to find them. And I have heard a bit of Art vs. Science and I like them. I'll have to check out those other guys, too. I've been listening to Daft Punk, Miike Snow, and Rammstein a lot lately, which aren't that similar to each other at all.

I listen to podcasts occasionally, but haven't lately. I'd be up to listening to some though. I've been listening to all of the Roeper Reviews on YouTube, so if there was a quality podcast I'd be up for it.

I also noticed I forgot to answer your question about genres I don't like. My least favorite is Westerns, mainly because I live in the area where westerns are based, so everyone here wears Western clothing and is all about watching Westerns, so I guess I just got burned out on them very early on. Brokeback Mountain was based in my area, which enraged almost everone out here, which I didn't understand I guess. Apparently they thought it was tarnishing the cowboy image and and embarrassment to the state, but I guess that just proves how primitive this culture is.

Also not big on comedy, prefer comedy television.

Yeah I do like quite a lot of sport. I love tennis, and have been to Wimbledon a few times.
I tried to get tickets for the London Olympics last year but missed out, it was such an opportunity but the tickets just didn't come up for me. I enjoyed watching it on TV anyway.
I tried to get tickets for the wheelchair basketball(they nickname it 'murderball'!) at the Paralympics too, it was great to watch.

Have you ever got the opportunity to go and watch AFL or basketball 'live'? It's so different from being at home. Centre Court at Wimbledon was a fantastic experience for me.

That's so cool that you played against the wheelchair basketballers, must've been a great experience :)

When my friend lived in Melbourne she went to the Aussie Open tennis, I was so envious!
I'm not really into cricket or golf, I don't find them exciting at all.

I'm with you on the screaming women tennis players. It seems to me that if you need to make a noise every time you hit the ball, then there's a weakness there, whether it's mental or physical. It's also bound to have an effect on their opponent too.
Victoria Azarenka is the worst offender, god she's loud, I can't watch her! The mens' game is far better than the ladies. Women's matches tend to be too one-sided, I find.
I stayed up late to watch Andy Murray win the US Open last year, it shredded my nerves, but was great.

I used to mainly play tennis and netball in school, but don't play any more.
It must be uncomfortable when there's loads of people in the crowd at AFL, but I bet you always have a great view ;)

I always thought Jackman was British, maybe because I first saw him in the Prestige, and Bale, Nolan, and Caine are all Brits. So he never came up!

I'll definitely have to check out some of those bands, and a few of those podcasts as well. I'll be doing a lot more traveling this month, and I find American music a waste of time. It's impossible for me to find any I actually could listen to. Everyone wants to be famous and rich, no one actually cares about making music. Podcasts pass the time so well too, which will be nice for long drives. My favorite podcast I've ever listened to was the Ricky Gervais show, I find it hilarious, but then again I'm a huge Gervais fan. I can understand why a lot of people despise him though.

My travels haven't brought me anything interesting lately, just a lot of nothing in my area. This month I will be in Denver and Dallas, so I hope to see some good museums, zoos, and maybe see my first Imax movie. I've never been to Texas before, so it will be a shock to go from the contiguous US's least populated area to one of its biggest metropolis regions. Also to get away from the snow, which I'm sure you never have to worry about.

I re-watched Moving Day earlier when it popped up on my ranking screen because I couldn't remember it. Donald and the plunger was still really funny! It's such an old cartoon but the comedy still works.
Looney Tunes was my favourite growing up, Daffy Duck made me laugh so much. I love Robin Hood Daffy, Duck Amuck, and the ones where Bugs and Daffy are trying to convince Elmer Fudd that it's Duck Season/Wabbit Season :)
Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner was also a favourite.

I will say that I can understand what all the hype is about. Unfortunately I generally don't like super powers or super hero movies, and the Avengers is probably the most faithful adaptation of a super hero comic ever. I also like a strong villain, and Loki doesn't do it for me. Personally, I don't care for Iron Man for the same reason most people love him. Captain America is too linear for my taste. I don't like whatever Scar Jo was doing. Ruffalo as the Hulk was just fantastic in my opinion, and I thought he'd be the worst part. All that being said, I stayed up way later than I wanted to to finish it, so it is an entertaining movie, I won't deny that, but it just isn't my taste.

Boonmee on 3/29/2013 Reply  · 

I'm glad you enjoyed it and the qualms you had about the catfish, the still images and the ending are perfectly understandable. Those are, after all, the most challenging parts of the film (I thought).
I think part of the problem in deciphering them comes from cultural differences. The film's spiritual themes seem to be deeply rooted in Thai culture and aspects of Buddhism and from what I read, the still images sequence has something to do with a significant period in Thai history (something a foreigner probably wouldn't be expected to know about). As for the rest, I might as well take it from the top. as there's quite a lot to this film (This is going to be a long post).
So, in the beginning, we watch a scene that appears to take place in older times. A water buffalo breaks away from its human masters and roams into the jungle where it is reined back in by its owner and taken away. This is the first time we encounter a ghost monkey. Herein lies the central theme of the film: one's relationship with their own spirituality and the supernatural. Was the water buffalo Boonmee in an earlier life? Does this run parallel to his later experiences with the supernatural?
Soon after this scene, we meet the main characters and learn that Boonmee is very ill and has gone to this place in the mountains and jungles to rest (as perhaps this setting is more beneficial to someone in his position). Boonmee's journey in this film is toward coming to terms with his end and accepting the idea of his passing into the supernatural world. At the dinner scene, we are introduced to Boonsong, a monkey spirit- formerly a man who once became fascinated by the monkey spirits of the jungle. He photographed them, mated with one and became a spirit himself. I think the photography part is important to note. He watches them from a distance and takes these superficial snapshots of them- putting that which is mysterious and otherworldly into a material format. It's not until he makes contact with them that things change drastically. He was absorbed into the world of the supernatural by his own doing and although he has been cut off from family, he is not shown to be effected for the worst because of it. Huay, Boonmee's dead wife is also introduced in this scene and holds a conversation with the others in a calm, very matter-of -fact way. It's scenes like this that made me respond to the film so strongly. It's great the way the scene, which is very odd in concept is turned around and made fascinating because of the way the characters relate to one another in that scene. Boonsong speaks of other spirits and hungry animals being out that night (perhaps sinister in their ways or friendly, like him) and this gives a sense of the surrounding environment’s energy and just why it is that this may be the place for Boonmee to die.
It's getting late, so I'm going to try to wrap this up.
Re: the catfish scene
I took that as possibly being one of Boonmee's past lives. It's been awhile, but if I remember correctly, the princess was fretting about her appearance and seemed to be preoccupied with aging. The catfish sprung up and reassured her of her beauty, enticing her to come into the water where the two have intercourse. Like with the story of Boonsong, we see a person mating with a kind of supernatural animal creature. The theme of a person giving themself over to the supernatural is present once more and I think of it as a parallel to Boonmee's situation. The whole sequence is set up like an old fable and I love the way it's executed.

My answer to your feelings about the ending is going to be long. When I first watched the film, the ending weighed heavily on my mind for a few days and I ended up writing out a 2-page analysis of it. I think I lost the paper, though. I'm gonna try to find it and see if I can condense it for you tomorrow as it's not fair to you for me to vaguely sketch out my reasoning when I'm tired like this.
I'll leave you with this, though. I recommend that you watch it again. When I first saw the film, I was eager to break it down and analyze every little thing, but once I revisited it and relaxed and let it wash over me, I found that the film really opens up and the atmosphere becomes even more tangible. Even if the ideas are hard to grasp, it's a wonderful piece of hypnotic filmmaking and an experience that is by turns entrancing and haunting.

Boonmee on 3/29/2013 Reply  · 

Ok, so the ending. I couldn't find that paper I wrote, so this is just coming from what I remember.

To start, Boonmee dies after a trip made deep into the jungle, deep into a dark cave. I took this as a journey made into the self and one that carries special weight for Boonmee. We see a group of spirit monkeys watch as he enters the cave and I got the feeling that he was heading towards something ancient, yet familiar. It was the culmination of his spiritual trek throughout the film.

Following this, we see Jen attending a kind of funeral service and later meeting with a monk and a girl at a hotel (I think that's what it was). The monk strips himself of his traditional robes and showers. He changes into modern dress and goes back into the main room where he and Jen separate from their bodies and go out to a cafe in the city where a bit of modern pop music is playing. He cuts back to the hotel room where Jen, the monk and the girl stare blankly into the television. With this ending, I believe Weerasethakul is illustrating younger generations/modern people as straying from tradition, while still retaining their innate spirituality (the idea of mobile spirits remains, despite this perceived apathy towards traditional values/customs). I think their "escape" from the room by way of splitting themselves can also be linked to the opening scene in which the water buffalo breaks free of its modern-day trappings and wanders aimlessly into the nearby forest. The city has become the "forest" for Jen and the monk and rather than finding the red eyes of a spirit monkey, they encounter gaudy lights and vapid pop music. No one in the cafe reacts to what's going on around them and Jen and the monk appear no more at ease in the cafe than their counterparts appear to be back in the hotel.
That's my understanding of the ending. The director's explanation of the film is pretty different from what I understood it to be, though. See "Themes" on this page:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uncle_Boonmee_Who_Can_Recall_His_Past_Lives

And one last note on something. If the song at the end bothered you at all, I should warn you that Weerasethakul does that for the ending of every film of his I've seen (Tropical Malady & Syndromes and a Century).

My wall posts are displaying oddly. Your newest post showed up in the middle of my wall for some reason.

I thought Killer Elite was a decent action film. Robert De Niro was my main reason for seeing it. The ending was alright enough for me.

You're welcome. I'm happy to discuss one of my favorite films of the last few years.
For your question, I think it's more likely that in those two situations, Boonmee was the person/animal that encountered the supernatural being (in other words, the princess and the buffalo). I can't come up with a really strong argument on why, but it just makes more sense to me in terms of making parallels with the stories...But, now that I think of it, the idea of Boonmee being the spirit monkey at the beginning of the film puts a new, very interesting spin on the film (And might explain some of the "connectedness" he felt in the jungles and the cave near the end as he neared death).

I loved Suspiria, the fantastic soundtrack and wild color scheme created this awesome mood/atmosphere that just sucked me in. The scene with the dog was shocking too, it was probably obvious to most what was gonna happen but it genuinely took me by surprise and sent chills down my spine.

I didn't even know there was a sequel, Suspiria is such an iconic horror I thought I'd have heard of a sequel lol thanks for letting me know, it never would have crossed my mind to look that up. I might check it out then!

Stolen was just awful, I expected more from the writer of Safe House, the director of Con Air, and Nic Cage. Terrible lines, predictable plot devices and an 80s style theme tune running through the whole thing, it didn't even fall into the 'so bad it's good' category.....it just didn't work for me!

Haven't seen the 1954 Sabrina, saw the updated version with Harrison Ford and Julia Ormond which was ok, can't remember it that well now, but I'd imagine the older version is better.

Amour and Rust & Bone were both tough and upsetting to watch in places, but are very good stories with incredible performances.
Amour felt like a documentary at times, Emmanuelle Riva was very affecting, an extraordinary performance and I can see why she was Oscar nominated. It was unbearably sad, stayed with me and kept invading my thoughts the next day. But I'm glad I saw it.

Rust & Bone wasn't what I expected from seeing the trailer, it's marketed as a love story, and love is a main theme, but there are other layers.
Marion Cotillard is stunning in her role. I didn't care for the male character played by Matthias Schoenaerts, he was really unlikeable, but the actor was good.

I found it compelling, distressing and beautiful. A slow-burner that creeps up on you. One scene made me cry, I was still wiping away tears a few minutes after the scene ended, and it's not often that films affect me to that extent. It left me in a weird reflective mood.
The only thing I didn't like was the use of a pop song, I found it jarring, but it's a song I don't like anyway.

I will probably never watch Amour again, but it deserves a good ranking because of how it affected me, I've never seen anything like it.
Rust & Bone is one I might revisit one day, but not anytime soon.

I felt like I needed to watch a bit of crap after those two films, hence Ghost Rider, which was on television last night, lol.

It's hard to describe Rust & Bone accurately, I hope I was coherent, haha. It's kind of brutal, but fragile at the same time. Might have to change my ranking of it, because now I think I prefer it to Amour.

What do I think of Sci-Fi? I find it interesting. I guess I tend to like Sci-Fi with a psychological angle, like Moon. It's a genre that can be a bit hit and miss with me. How about you? :)

I liked the comic book style of Ghost Rider(don't know anything about the comic/graphic novel it's adapted from, but the overall look was really enjoyable for me), however I was distracted by Nic Cage's hairpiece :( lol. I loved Sam Elliott, he was great.
When Cage was in front of the mirror, I kept expecting him to grip the sink and go 'what is happening tooo meeee?!' haha!

Didn't like Wes Bentley though, he looked like something out of Twilight!

I thought Django was thoroughly exciting and side-splitting. I think Tarantino is an incredibly talented writer and director, and I'm glad to see Death Proof was a fluke. I didn't expect DiCaprio and Jackson to have those performances in them, and they blew me away (and Waltz too). There are a few things that bothered me: Django isn't as interesting as the other characters (in theory he is, but the other characters stole the show). There were a few points in the movie that needed more editing. Also Tarantino shouldn't act. Other than that, I think it may eventually move up to be my third favorite Tarantino movie.

I like the Father Ted ep where they go on holiday to the tiny caravan, the one where Dougal has a new 'cool' friend Father Damien, and the parody of Speed with Dougal on the milkfloat! But they're all fantastic, and I also love it whenever Ted accidentally calls the Bishop 'Len' :D

Mrs Doyle falling off the windowsill is always hilarious isn't it! And Father Jack :D If it had carried on I think they'd have had to do something different with him, or maybe just make him bark different words, haha.
Terrible shame that Dermot Morgan died so young.

I like Graham LInehan's other sitcoms too, 'Black Books' and 'The I.T. Crowd'. :)

Great animal stories, especially your grandad being an accidental emu sniper! Amazing :)

I did like West Africa, I went to Gambia, they call it the smiling coast of Africa, it's the smallest country on the mainland.
We went to a nature reserve where there were little monkeys jumping around, sailed down the river, went to watch the fishermen bring their catches in, visited a local school, it was really good. But the poverty was eye-opening, and I wished I'd taken stuff with me to give to the schoolkids. I also went to the tiniest nightclub I'd ever seen, haha.
The people were so friendly, you'd be walking along the beach and a local would just start walking with you and start up a conversation.....although those locals were mainly always male, and maybe it was partly because it was just me and my (female) friend, they'd ask us 'where's your boss man' lol. We were warned we might get hassled a bit, but it wasn't too bad. :)

......and uh, National Treasure(I have to keep the Cage-fest going, haha) I've seen that a lot of people on here have it as a guilty pleasure, so I'm interested to see it.


I've also heard that The Raid is quite similar to Dredd......should I see Dredd first or does it not matter? I kind of want to see Dredd first anyway.

Yes, AFL... Since I was just watching highlights I didn't get a sense of continuity or purpose. There was a bunch of good catches (compared to what I know, NFL American football), but I wasn't sure what they were accomplishing. I'm assuming based on what I watched that you can kick through the uprights for points or catch in the marked zone for points? I also didn't know how you advance the ball up field, if it was rugby rules and just run, or passing like in American football.

Was Goon good? I've heard it was pretty good and contemplated watching it on a few occasions.

I was at a pub in Denver and that game was on, I was looking at the menu when I heard the entire place erupt with a shocked "ohhhh!" So I turn around and they had this probably 125 inch projector screen and it showed the slow motion replay. It was horrifying. It reminds me of the Marcus Lattimore injury from American football earlier this year, if you truely wanted to you could look it up, but I'm not recommending it is out there to see.

13 yes, I thought I was going to be in a hotel for 2 weeks for work in Dallas, but it turns out I'm going to be in a company apartment in the industrial district. So there isn't anything within walking distance, so I figured why not take a player with me and watch everything I own but haven't watched.

Happy to hear you enjoyed it! Yeah, I think I would agree with that, it never occurred to me the first time I watched it to be honest, but I re-watched it a few days ago and I can see that for sure. Hoffman and Phoenix are terrific aren't they? When they're on screen together it's just electric, they played off each other so well, that first processing scene is fantastic.

Oh yeah, I watched The Descent 2, didn't really enjoy it much at all. It kinda failed to do anything the first one did well, the characters are bland & uninteresting, there's a 'twist' that really annoyed me (I'll not spoil anything incase you see it), it's got none of the tension the first one was able to create. It's actually far too bright when they're in the caves as well lol

I'm so glad you liked Senna :)

In my opinion there was a bit of favouritism shown to Senna in the film, and Prost was made out to be perhaps more of a bad guy than he deserved. They were different drivers in style, but with similar personalities, which is why they clashed. But Prost loved to complain and point the finger when he was unhappy, and came across in a bad way when he did so.

Their rivalry is documented well in the film, although I was quite young(used to watch F1 with my dad) and don't remember it with a lot of clarity from when it actually happened. I do remember the day he died though, that whole weekend was awful.

I loved the way the film was edited, and the music. :)

There's been a food scandal here recently(it's all across Europe in fact), some supermarket beef products have been found to be contaminated with horse meat! So you've sampled mouse in your popcorn, and I've probably eaten horse. :O
It's not the horsemeat that repulses me, after all I eat cows and pigs etc so why should eating horses revolt me, just the fact that the labelling is incorrect, and that's the harmful thing. People need to know what they're eating. Don't think mouse popcorn would be a winner though, hah.

It was incredibly awesome. On the spectrum, it leans more towards being a typical generic horror movie rather than one that complete revitalizes the genre but that isn't always bad. The character of Mia (the new Ash Williams) is cool but doesn't quite have the coolness of Bruce Campbell, but then again, nobody does. The path leading up to the end is more violent than gory and the (great fucking) finale is more gory than violent, if you catch my drift.

It's not better than the original, but it is a pretty damn good remake and is definitely the best remake I've seen for a movie so far.

I also read somewhere that Sam Raimi is going to start making an Army of Darkness 2 and after both of these films are released, both directors are gonna work on an Evil Dead film together that will star both Ash and Mia. It'll be one hell of a film.

Dredd.......AWESOME. I loved it and didn't want it to end. I used to read my brother's 2000AD comics when I was a kid. That is a perfect Judge Dredd in my book.

The 'any last words bitch' scene was a favourite, and I loved the slo-mo effects.

I bet you saw it in 3D didn't you? Must have been incredible in 3D.

shane24, all those movies!!!! Wow, really am surprised to see 300 that high up, I do think its a great movie and a great piece of entertainment with some fantastic action sequences but at times, the color of the film irritated me. I feel bad for not ever having seen Kickass, but since Part 2 comes out later this year, can you please tell me what you really like about the film so I can give it a go? Thanks!

Yeah, I seen it years ago, I can't remember too much about it other than I did like it. I must watch it again soon to refresh my memory of it! I see you have it very high, I'll re-watch it soon. What did you think of Senna? Been meaning to watch it for a while.

Haha yeah the bath scene was mesmerising! Really effective.
Totally agree about Anderson, she was so good!

I really hope they can find the money to make a decent sequel, there's so much they could do with it. It's a real shame that it didn't do as well at the box office. Do you think it's because Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby aren't as well known? Because that's crazy.

The comic book style was so, so well done, probably one of the best comic adaptations I've seen, I loved the framing of the shots, the colours and effects.

Yeah my brother saw it a while back, when I told him I was going to watch it he told me I'd like it a lot :)

The other movie I saw, it was okay, but I didn't like it that much. I thought the two characters were selfish and unlikeable, and I couldn't get past that!

Oh, the Stallone movie was awful wasn't it. That reminds me of another thing I liked about Dredd: Urban never took the helmet off. Dredd is supposed to be faceless, his justice doesn't have a face, if that makes sense. I probably sound like a massive geek, haha.

I don't really read them anymore, as a kid I used to read some Spiderman and 2000AD, as well as the usual comic strip stuff like Garfield and Peanuts, I also loved Gary Larson's 'The Far Side' cartoons.

After I saw The Dark Knight Rises last summer I borrowed some of the Dark Knight comics/graphic novels. I wanted to read Knightfall(where Bane breaks Batman's back) but couldn't find it, will seek it out one day.
Watching Dredd made me want to read 2000AD again :)

Have been dipping in and out of playing arcade stuff recently. I loved Dust: An Elysian Tale.
My recent favourite is Red Dead Redemption, and the recent Final Fantasy games. I have a 360, 3DS and WiiU(I watch movies on the gamepad as well, via streaming, the HD is very good).

The more I think about it, the more I feel that way. It started off alright, but got gradually worse as it went along. My biggest issue was that it felt like it was trying to be too many things at once. One minute it's a dark comedy, the next it's a claustrophobic horror/thriller, then later it turns into a police procedural while all the way through it weaves in this romantic drama plotline (which goes nowhere, ultimately). The jumps in tone are just ridiculous in the film and most of the time I wanted the movie to calm down, pick an angle and stick with it. I liked David Hyde Pierce, but as the film went on, it became more and more clear that he wasn't entirely sure how to play his character. Was he menacing? Was he playful? His character changed just as much as the movie's tone did and that annoyed me as well.
So, yeah, not a good movie.

Looking at your recently seen films, I'm wondering what you thought of Casa de mi padre. Personally, I didn't like it at all (I thought it was even worse than The Perfect Host).

Thanks a ton, shane24! The long answer really helps me get a better understanding of the movie Kickass! Yeah, I can see how you love cinema classics, so do I. I can see your love for Nolan's Batman films, I mean the Dark Knight and the Dark Knight Rises at 1 and 2! I had some issues with the Dark Knight Rises, it certainly did have some over the top action, some fantastic scenes and great character development, but I found the film rather underwhelming, still glad you loved it! May I ask, what are your most anticipated films of 2013?

Mine would be

1) Star Trek Into Darkness
2) Man of Steel
3) Iron Man 3
4) The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug
5) Pacific Rim

And thanks a lot again! I wish to see more of your favorite movies!

From Dusk Til Dawn is a vampire tale, isn't it? I do like stuff like that......I contradict myself sometimes. Might give that and Desperado a go sometime.
I guess the horror that I really don't like is the newer generation of movies like Saw(although I have been tempted to watch it because I've been told it's quite a clever movie), Hostel etc where there's torture. I just don't like watching that stuff.

I love music, all types and genres. Classical, pop, rock, punk, singer-songwriter, electronic. I have lots of favourite bands and artists and have been to loads of gigs.
Lately I've been listening to some AFI(they're one of my all time faves), and I keep hearing this song on the radio called Blue Collar Jane, which is insanely catchy.
What do you like listening to?

Olympus Has Fallen is more of a renter, to be honest. You can think of it as a Die Hard sequel, but with a different guy in place of John McClane. Not really worth going to the theater for.

Crumb was very interesting. The guy is very weird as are his whole family, his brothers are even stranger than him. If you find him interesting then you'll probably like it, but he is very weird. It's oddly disturbing in places too, I'll see if you know what parts I mean when I say disturbing. It's definitely worth a watch anyway and I hope it works for you!

That sounds like an awesome shed :) lol Makes sense to use both when you explain it like that so it does.

District 9, it pretty much blew me away, awesome movie. Didn't know what to expect, it was so well done, and I liked the humour in it too. 'are those grenades?' 'no it's cat food' made me laugh a lot.

End of Watch was great as well. Gyllenhaal was amazing. I wasn't expecting to laugh as much as I did. But the tension was almost unbearable! At one bit, I realised I had fingernail marks in my palm :O

Nooo I'm not a fan of those teen acts. I will admit that One Direction's first single was a good pop song, but they're annoying for the most part. They have songs written for them, they don't play instruments, they'll just keep churning out the same recycled songs, because the girls will buy it. They recently murdered Blondie's 'One Way Or Another'. It was for charity, but god it was terrible.

It depends on when and where you go to the cinema, outside London it's about £9 per ticket, but the closer you get to the capital it goes over £10, and that's before you get any popcorn. What are the ticket prices like for you?

I try to go when there are offers on, like every Wednesday if you're with a particular mobile network, you get 2 for 1 tickets.

About Inception, I have seen the film many times this year so far (it was my first time watching, earlier this year) and I've always being thinking, everytime I re-watch it...Who is truly the villlain? I guess the film tries to convince us that the villain is Cobb's subconcious but it doesn't give a straight up villain!

Glad you liked Prince of Darkness. It's got some moments that are really lame, but I think it actually benefits from playing the whole "Satan's in the green goo" thing straight-faced. The "dream" sequences really stood out for me - so otherworldly and eerie. Great soundtrack and for me it was a huge treat to see Victor Wong again. I grew up watching the first two 3 Ninjas movies, so he was a pleasant surprise.

Now that you've seen that, you can watch this if you haven't seen it already. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrH_J5v6VEM

You're fine, not offensive at all. Yes, it does affect movie watching. Typically I end up playing with something so my hands have something to do while I watch a movie, last night I was watching a movie and kept folding my candy wrapper as tight as I could over and over again for an hour, but it helped me focus. Sometimes movies don't get a fair shake with me simply because they can't keep my focus. There Will Be Blood, Hurt Locker, ect... I think they were good but my focus kept getting lost. I also think that is why I can't get into older movies, they are paced slower and less dynamic visually. ADHD, however, allows you to hyper-focus on something you are interested in, so when I get in to a movie, I am locked in. That rarely happens though, but that's when I know it is a really good movie.

I will get on to watching the rest of Breaking Bad before it restarts again :)

He reminds me a little of Jeff Buckley, who I love. James Vincent McMorrow is a recent favourite of mine too(his track Follow You Down To The Red Oak Tree was featured in a film I saw last year, and I was hooked from then on).
