Best and Worst : What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

You don't give movies much of a chance do you? The movie has literally been on for only 10 minutes at that point. The story didn't even start yet.

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

20 minutes actually.. and I have never liked the look of this film or its counterpart which is why it ha taken so long to get to. BUt I only warned that I may not make it through.. I usually get to near the half way point at least before i give up.. which is not too often

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

No its true!

I might return to The Proposition one day but I doubt I can sit through the insufferable Dead Man again.. Depp is so yuck in this

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

I actually didn't like Dead Man the first time I watched it 10 years ago but I really liked it the second time.

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

I already knew you didn't like Butch Cassidy, but I'm sad you don't like Two Mules for Sister Sara.

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

I hated the twist.



7/10=good()5/10=mediocre

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

I had it spoiled for me while I was watching it.

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

It was probably a 6.5/10 up to that point and you know already that I love the score.



7/10=good()5/10=mediocre

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

I like the twist a lot. It would have been nice if I hadn't know what it was before it happened though.

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

Well, I'm glad you like it.



7/10=good()5/10=mediocre

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

I really do not like the music in Tombstone

7/10=good()5/10=mediocre

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

Which version of Appaloosa? The one with Brando, or the remake?

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

The Ed Harris version and it isn't a remake. They just share the same name.




7/10=good()5/10=mediocre

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

I wasn't sure if it was a remake or not, I just knew their were two films called Appaloosa.

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

It's my 18th favorite right now.

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

Red Sun and The Ox-Bow Incident are on YouTube (though not amazing quality).

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

Red Sun was foreign language or the sound didn't work or somthing. I was going to watch that when you mentioned it a couple weeks ago.

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

Hmm.

I must have tried a differnet one.



7/10=good()5/10=mediocre

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

Yeah there are a few and at least one of them is not in English.

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

the film certainly gets better as it goes

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

Yeah, there are plenty of bad movies with great sets and costumes. Good scores too.

Too bad the characters, story and directing were crap. I didn't laugh once through the entire film.



7/10=good()5/10=mediocre

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

I didn't find it overly funny, but I did enjoy it.

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

It was just painfully boring to me.



7/10=good()5/10=mediocre

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

yo
I'd have gone DOuglas for supporting


Leaving Las Vegas (1995, Mike Figgis)
Not seen since it came out, all i rememeber is that it was very depressing and that the acting was good

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011, Tomas Alfredson)
a little two stilted and sterile for my taste but some good acting in it 6/10

U Turn (1997, Oliver Stone)
I need to watch this properly, seen bits

Adaptation. (2002, Spike Jonze)
I like this a lot, maybe Cages best performance 7.5/10

War of the Worlds (2005, Steven Spielberg)
5.5/10

The Apartment (1960, Billy Wilder)
yup 8/10

Wall Street (1987, Oliver Stone)
I just dont think it has held up too well other than Michael Douglas who is excellent. It is not a very well made film. 5/10

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

I think Wall Street is very well made besides the parts involving the female characters. Hannah brings the film down everytime she is on screen imo. She is one of my least favorite actresses. I'm not too fomd of Sean Young either but at least she has some talent.

The only movie Hannah is good in is Steel Magnolias.



7/10=good()5/10=mediocre

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

Well I didn't say the acting, i just think it was poorly shot and edited.

I like Daryl Hannah in Bladerunner and she is fine in a few other inconsequential films.

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

Oh, I disagree. I really like most of the cinematography. I will say the editing has it's problems though.

I know you didn't say the acting. I meant I don't like those parts at all and not just becasue of the acting.

Hannah is servicable in Splash, Roxanne and Kill Bill but awful in some others. She more just has a grating personality.

I do think she is terrible in Blade Runner and Wall Street though.



7/10=good()5/10=mediocre

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

I like Hannah a lot in Kill Bill.

I don't hate her performance in Wall Street, but she's not very good.

I actually nominate Sean Young for Blade Runner.

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

I don't have a problem with Sean Young in Blade Runner.

She is serviceable in Kill Bill, but again, I am biased becasue I dislike her in general.

Kill Bill has one of the worst fmale casts in movie history imo, besides Thurman of course.

Lucy Lui is a bad actress and this movie is no excption. She made more of an impression in the 10 minutes she is in Payback (1999).


7/10=good()5/10=mediocre

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

I think Wall Street is very well shot.

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

Last time I watched it I was shocked at how amateurish it seemed

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

Kind of like how the cgi in LOTR is laughable?

Excuse me while I fart on that opinion.



7/10=good()5/10=mediocre

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

To be fair, almost everything in those films is laughable so at least it matches

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)

Blasphemy. Blasphemy. Blasphemy.

Stomps around the room.



7/10=good()5/10=mediocre

Re: What Movies Did You Watch Last Week? (14/11-20/11)


I'd have gone DOuglas for supporting

Yeah, but you haven't seen Tombstone. Speaking of which, when the hell are you going to watch it? Kilmer is amazing.

Definitely give U Turn a shot. I really enjoyed it.
