The problem i have with found footage movies is that the footage needs to be able to be found and a lot of movies make it so that recovering the camera or the video from the camera would be nearly impossible or impracticable
This movie does that twice, but thinking back i cant think of any found footage movie other then maybe cloverfield that doesnt do that

To be honest, I never thought of that, but I agree wholeheartedly.

City of God 10/10 it's awesome

Anything made by Wes Anderson is at least a 8/10

From what I've seen so far in order of best to worst from him
Rushmore
The Royal Tenenbaums
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

And I'm going to be watching
The Diving Bell and The Butterfly
The Cabin in the Woods
The Raid Redemption

O yea, I forgot about that part.

And I loved City of God.
I went into it knowing nothing at all and it was a great surprise. Amaz is right, any explanation will not do the movie justice.
And diving bell and the butterfly was such a well shot film. So amazing.

The Raid 8/10
A pretty damn badass action movie. Its kind of a mix between die hard 1 and Ong Bak. Excellent fight scenes. Unfortunatly its Indonesian and the only version out has subs, but sony pictures just bought the rights to this movie and are ganna make an english version eventually..

So whoever isn't looking forward to this, is a moron.
Im pretty sure i posted something somewhere on here that said my expectations for The Avengers was low

Its been awhile since i made a post going over movies

The Pact
I went into this movie expecting it to be great, i was very disappointed
None of it was scary, the story made little sense with giant plot holes, and it was incredibly predictable (not counting the plot holes that forced a twist)
Spoiler:
 

The Avengers
I had low expectations for this because i didnt think they would be able to give each character the time they needed since there were so many but i was wrong
This movie is pretty close to perfect for a superhero movie with this many characters
I love what they did with Bruce Banner's character, i was afraid that character would drag the whole movie down but they changed it from the hulk movies so that character was enjoyable (i only saw 1 of the hulk movies so maybe the 2nd one was better)
All the characters were great here
My only complaint with the movie is that Loki never really felt that threatening as a villain
Spoiler:
 

The Hunger Games
Theres a movie called Battle Royale made in 2000 based on a book that was written in 1999
In Battle Royale teenagers are sent into the wilderness with nothing and are told that only 1 person can return, if more theres more then 1 person after the allotted time then everyone remaining is killed, certain areas become inaccessible after a certain point
The 2nd half of the hunger games is almost exactly the same as Battle Royale (even the ending to some extent), watching that part of the hunger games just made me want to watch Battle Royale
Spoiler:
 
The 1st half of The Hunger Games isnt bad
Spoiler:
 
This movie did give us the survival games mod for minecraft though, so its OK in my book

Men in Black 3
This was far better than i thought it would be
I liked the first Men in Black, didnt like the 2nd one, so when i found out they were reviving the franchise for a 3rd i thought it was going to be terrible
But it was surprisingly decent
Spoiler:
 
I do have some complaints with the time travel though

Looper



This movie was awesome, I loved it. It's a sci-fi, I'll start with that. The movie take a realistic tone to it, no metallic jump suits no major sci-fi isms. It stars Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (with a crap ton of makeup, to make him look like a young/not bald Bruce Willis) The acting is amazing, everyone was on the A game. I believed that JGL was a younger more immature version of Willis. The make up doesn't look fake, I never doubted that it was his younger version.

It was a time travel movie but it didn't have any evident plot holes, I don't want to mention any details because this movie was full of surprises. The writing was great. The direction was amazing, he also wrote and directed Brick and The Brothers Bloom, I hear really good things about both of them. Did you guys see them? If so what you think. It's one of my favorites of the year for sure.

9.5/10

Spoiler:
 

Why did you specifically put metallic jump suits as something from sci fi that is unrealistic
Its a really oddly specific example

marksoccer wrote:

Spoiler:
 

But overall it was enjoyable, as long as you dont overthink it
The acting was good all around
I really like the dark and serious tone it has
It is more sci fi than mark said it is
And while i did see the other twists coming, i didnt see the end coming, which happens very rarely, so that was good
And its not the kind of ending that comes out of nowhere and makes absolutely no sense, so i was genuinely surprised at it

I saw that movie so long ago
I remember liking it though
I cant remember any complaints i had with the time travel but im sure theres something
I probably let it slide like i am for Looper since it was enjoyable overall



Im trying to think of a bad movie that Bruce Willis was in and i cant think of any
Maybe Hudson Hawk, but he was still good in that

Yea I get what you mean, at the end of the day, it was a time travel movie without a blatant plot hole. The issue it does has is forgivable due to the sheer awesomeness of this movie and it's attempt to limit the plot wholes. I would love to watch a director commentary of this movie to see what he intended with it.

U should rewatch it, you can never fully appreciate movies when you are too young

I thought that The expendables was a pretty horrible movie. Every actor that was in it was just there to milk their legendary roles in other movies. (Oh god and don't get me started with chuck norris). The movie can be summarized as : YEEEEEEHAAAAAAA

This reminds me, i think they are making die hard 6

I saw looper yesterday, and was worried i wasn't gonna be able to explain the issue i saw with its time travel mechanics, but luckily pat already expressed what i was only comprehending. But then again, i wanted to go through that process, so, fuck you! <3

But yeah, I really liked the movie, i liked the way it approached time travel more then anything else I've seen.

I cant imagine it being worse then Hudson Hawk at least

K so I haven't posted on this thread for a while but I've watched a lot of movies as on late.

Argo
This is a movie about the Iranian hostage crisis. If you are unfamiliar, it's when the Iranian people stormed the US embassy and kidnapped the embassy workers. However, a few escaped (I forgot how many, too lazy to search it) and are taking refuge with the Canadian ambassador
(woot woot). This movie was masterfully directed, and acted by Ben Affleck. He has proven that he's a great directer, with 3 great movies now under his belt. I personally never watched Gone Baby Gone but I hear it's great, and The Town was awesome. Ben Affleck was also great as the lead actor, with an amazing supporting cast consisting of Bryan Cranston, Alan Arkin, and John Goodman. The movie was great, with a realistic (or at least was seems to be realistic) recollection of a historic event
8.5/10

Seven Psychopaths
Martin McDonagh's followup performance to his other amazing movie, In Bruges. This movie was magnificently directed and written. I loved it, I laughed all the way through. I'm too lazy to type but it reminded me much of a Tarantino flick. The acting was amazing, every one hit their notes, but what more can you expect from Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson, Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell. Great and hilarious movie.
8.5/10

Cloud Atlas
This movie was unique to say the least. I can't really explain it via text, or I can't without spoiling (and I'm much too lazy). The acting was good, the concept great, but what stuck out the most was the way the movie looked, specifically in the makeup department . It as confusing, but I think I understood it. It's a big deal because it's the largest indi movie of all time.
7/10 I want to push it to a 7.5 just because of the sheer scoop of the movie but I'm going to stick to a 7

Wreck-It Ralph
It was amazing, the perfect video game movie. If you're a retro gaming fan you will love this movie. If you're an animation fan you will love this movie. If you're a fan of good movies, you will love this movie. If you're a fan of bad movies, you won't like this movie. The direction was great, voice acting phenomenal, only Sarah Silverman was annoying in the beginning. I loved all the cameo and little references everywhere. The plot which seemed simple from the trailer is more deep and with many established layers. What surprised me the most was the most was the animated short before the movie. It was brilliant and gorgeous, it established a beautiful love story in 5 minuets.
10/10 for both the short and the movie

Skyfall
Absolutely amazing. This movie was masterfully shot, the lightning was perfect, every shot was perfect. That can be accredited to Roger Deakins as cinematographer and Sam Mendes as director. It was a dark bond film, none of the campy stuff. It was up to the caliber of Casino Royal not Quantum of Solace. Daniel Craig was great as usual and the supporting cast was great with Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes and Javier Bardem playing one of the greatest villains I've seen in a while. It was action packed but kept the smart wit of a bond flick. Brilliant.
10/10

So i wrote a long and disjointed review of the movie Life of Pi. I mostly tried to write fairly and calmly, but then i was like "fuck this" so you can read the long version in the spoiler if you want, there arn't actually much of any spoilers.

The book is a new favorite of mine.

Suffice to say of the movie though:
It obliterated the core concepts of the book so they could make a pretty-looking-childrens-movie
and it pisses me off to no end.

I've only seen clips of Saw, and heard people talk about it. But this book was probably on level with how graphic it was. Now imagine they made a childrens story of Saw.
(Life of Pi is an insanely better story than Saw, though)
I just cant believe someone thought this was a good idea.
Im so angry i cant even finish any of my trains of thought.
Hence why this entire post is turning into a giant train wreck.

It's a beautifully done movie with special effects. And has some funny parts.
But it all comes at the expense of something much more meaningful

All i really expect from a movie is that it either represents the book accurately enough, or else, creates something different that stands on its similar merits.
The hobbit, for instance, changed many important elements of the story from the book, but i felt like they were just creating a different story that would have been no worse if it had been the original hobbit, so i enjoy both book and movie.
However, if you had put the story of the movie form of Pi in a book, it would probably fill 1 page, and still not be worth reading.

You're basically asking me if watching the Holocaust is an enjoyable way to examine human behavior, forgetting all the jews the suffered and died.

Okay maybe thats not a perfect analogy. But its the level im at right now.

I havent read the book but i did see the movie, and i liked it
Even though i havent read the book i can tell its watered down from the source material at times
Im actually kindve surprised it got a PG rating with all the animal killing and the overall harsh dark tone of the whole thing
I wouldnt call it a kids movie though

Realistically you are being too critical of the movie since you like the book so much, or the book really could be a fantastical 10000000000000000 times better than the movie
I choose to beleive the realistic

Yeah, i deleted this post and then re posted twice, and then finally just left it up, cuz i did a bad job conveying my ideas and mainly conveyed my dissatisfaction.

I actually did enjoy the movie, and its good on its on, its only afterwords when i thought about what i wish i could have gotten it that i started realizing how much it made me angry.
