this is from korean director bong joon-ho. he's got a solid selection of films including 'the host' and 'mother'. i have not seen his first film 'barking dogs never bite', but ive heard good things about it.

It's like critics... you look for people you have similar taste as and check out their recommendations. I've been turned on to a few good movies from this thread, I just don't always come back to say so afterwards.

^yeah that's very true

anyway, the other day I watched two "the world ended, wut do?" movies: The Dark Hour and Cargo. I thought the former to be halfway decent--the characters were well done, but otherwise the movie left too much to be desired, and the ending, which should have been wildly depressing, failed to elicit much emotion out of me. Cargo, on the other hand, was phenomenal. With a budget that was a fraction the size of Pandorum's, it succeeded in creating a visually stunning movie. It had opportunities to fade away into the obscurity of ridiculous-action laden movies, but avoided that all together. There characters were not nearly as rich as those in The Dark Hour but the story was infinitely better.

if you've seen 'cloverfield', you'll understand why people complained the movie was a ripoff of the host.

With the same director as 300 and Watchmen I went in expecting great visual effects and a sub par storyline. I would have been fine with that, but there was next to no story at all. Just a mish-mash of hot chicks and sped-up / slowed-down fight scenes with iconic monsters. Just silly.


It's because the film can't be read as a straight-forward action flick. It is actually a commentary on sexism and false empowerement of women in geek culture, and in society as a whole.

The action is supposed to be silly and over-the-top, and then it is linked to lobotomy.

Snyder literally says that LOTR, robots, dragons and zombie nazis, are equivalent to male gaze, and objectification of women and that all these things are lobotomizing.

It's deliberately Snyder's most self-ironic movie and one that will (unfortunately) fly over too many heads. The film purposefully messes with its audience's expectations, it is called Sucker Punch for god's sake, and in all the trailers there was "You won't be prepared." Well, it turns out, no one really is.

none of this makes up for the fact that it's a totally shitty movie.

anyway, i started watching [I]Das Boot[/B] for the first time. Can't believe I've never seen this before...watching it with my dad so it'll take 2 nights, at least. the acting is phenomenal, though, and i can't remember the last time i saw a movie with a score like this that really just worked.
