I recommend Source Code. Very interesting concept with a nice twist in the story. Don't read the spoilers. Just watch it.

Nah, I found it rather lame and formulaic. I don't want to say it outright bad, but it really makes nothing out of its ideas. Kinda like Inception. Different enough from the dumbed-down mainstream, but just not memorable or gripping at all, imo.

Melancholia is melancholic.

If you've seen Solaris you may complain that Trier once again ripped off Tarkovsky, but it's not really comparable. See it for the beautiful and (self)destructive Kirsten Dunst, audiovisually stunning prologue and typically Danish Festen-like family bickering in the first act.

Watched this. Don't think I've ever seen a bigger piece of shit in my life.

Random for the sake of being random. Utter bullshit.

i have to agree. this was showing at the local theater a couple of months ago, and walked out after 20 minutes. i thought i would enjoy it, because of mr. oizo, but i was terribly wrong.

rewatched 'Vanilla Sky' the other night.



i do think people don't think too highly of this film, because it didn't do the original 'open your eyes' any justice. Didn't watch the original, but I do feel vanilla sky is a pretty solid film, and deserves a much better score than the current ratings on rotten tomatoes, metacritic, and imdb.

After watching the trailer for Rubber, you three still thought it was worth checking out?

I love ridiculous stuff, as long as it's done well. Sad to hear it apparently isn't.



Did you ever see the Toxic Avenger? Perfect example of what I'm talking about.

I agree, except inception was really good.

Source code is kind've like a cross between a rip off of twelve monkeys and a rip off of inception.

Is The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus any good?


Posted by Capitalizt on Jun-01-2011 10:23:

12 years late but I just watched "The Sixth Sense". I recommend it. The creepy ghost scenes make it worth it.

The first hour or so is.... but it collapses towards the end and devolves into something stupid.

one of his worse ones really... There are some really cool 'bits', but the film as a whole isn't that great

his best (most interesting) are his trippy early ones- Brazil & timebandits... all of the US ones are brilliant, but more 'normal', as they're american-- The Fisher King (don't know if anyone's seen this, but it is one of his best: fucking superb, and has Jeff Bridges & robin williams), 12 monkeys, and Fear & loathing in las vegas... films since then havn't been as good imo

I kinda thought the opposite


Posted by Lilith on Jun-02-2011 07:21:

Stake Land, looks good and well filmed, ok effects. Fairly tertiary character development and a mediocre ending... which probably means a terrible sequel at some point.

Agreed.


I highly recommend Miike's 13 Assassins. Yes, it's cliche-loaded, a Seven Samurai homage and I think even a remake. Sounds like a recipe for disaster but the movie actually is really good.


Posted by LAdazeNYnights on Jun-02-2011 22:37:

^ I just watched 13 Assassins for the second time last night. First time was in theaters. I liked it even more this time around. What a great movie - my favorite of the year so far.


Posted by LeopoldStotch on Jun-03-2011 02:19:

i do agree best movie of 2011 for me so far. 13 assassins. i do plan to see tree of life this weekend, so i am anticipating that will supplant 13 assassins for the #1 spot.

my top 10 of 2011 so far:

1. 13 assassins
2. martha marcy may marlene (great news about this movie. it received an earlier boost from october 2011 to july 2011. look out for this movie)
3. meek's cutoff
4. how to die in oregon
5. attack the block
6. i saw the devil
7. hanna
8. biutiful
9. source code
10. Hobo with a shotgun


Posted by LeopoldStotch on Jun-04-2011 06:28:

the tree of life



just saw the movie. if you plan to see it, do not download a crappy video quality version of this please. that is basically a slap to malick's face, and takes away the intentions of this film. find some kind of source for high quality definition or pay for it at the theater (it's worth it). this is not a movie. this is a 2 1/2 hour mesmerizing mental euphoric experience. that is all.
