Wanted

 

I liked it, it deserves the R rating it got certainly, and some things are a little crazy (a guy shooting the wings off of flies without any weapons training?) but it's a good popcorn flick.

 

Side note: it's based off a comic series VERY VERY tenuously. they steal a few lines and some very basic plot elements and character names but otherwise it's COMPLETELY different from Mark Millar's origional.

Saw Hellboy 2. Better than the first one, and I quite liked the first one.

So today I realised Severus Snape Alan Rickman played in Die Hard. Weeeeeird.

"Alright, I've been thinking. When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade - make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons, what am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager. Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons. Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons. I'm going to to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!"

His face will always be Hans Gruber to me. Even in Robin Hood I felt as if Kevin Costner was fighting a German terrorist.

I spent a night watching Kieślowski's decalogue. I now feel like a different person or something to that effect.

Just got done watching Han**** and Incredible Hulk. Not bad superhero films. Not as good as Iron Man or Batman Begins, but on the higher teirs than most.

Romper Stomper. One of Russell Crowe's early films in which he plays a neo-nazi skinhead gangleader in Melbourne. Not exactly the kind of movie that one would rave about loving but it is certainly compelling and uncomfortable and disturbing.

 

A worthwhile movie to watch if you don't mind disturbing and morally ambiguous films.

Notice how I can belittle your beliefs without calling you names. It's a useful skill to have particularly where you aren't allowed to call people names. It's a mistake to get too drawn in/worked up. I mean it's not life or death, it's just two guys posting their thoughts on a message board. If it were personal or face to face all the usual restraints would be in place, and we would never have reached this place in the first place. Try to remember that.

Is it kind of like American History X? Which was a pretty good movie imo. I always found it amusing that when he went on his "racist" rants that I pretty much agreed 100% even though it was intended to cause the opposite effect.

There was a time when I questioned the ability for the schizoid to ever experience genuine happiness, at the very least for a prolonged segment of time. I am no closer to finding the answer, however, it has become apparent that contentment is certainly a realizable goal. I find these results to be adequate, if not pleasing. Unfortunately, connection is another subject entirely. When one has sufficiently examined the mind and their emotional constructs, connection can be easily imitated. More data must be gleaned and further collated before a sufficient judgment can be reached.

No, they are pretty different, besides the obvious similiarities of skinheads and naziism. Romper Stomper is more about what happens to the gang that Crowe leads. And they are all just kids, really, you know, even Crowe. There's a certain innocence to all of them despite what they do and who they are. It reminds me more of Trainspotting, although much different in tone. Romper Stomper is a pretty bleak movie.

Wall-E.

 

My favorite movie of the year. :biggrin:

 

Going to see the Dark Knight when it comes out, of course, though.

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

I just got in from watching Wall - E. It was good, although for the first half an hour or so I thought to myself 'this is a bit too dark for a kids movie'.

Watched all of Rescue Dawn (finally) 2 days ago. I had started it about 3 months ago and never finished the last 25 minutes. I really liked it from start to finish and the prison camp scenes were done excellently. Due in no small part to great performances by Bale, Jeremy Davies, and, most surprisingly, Steve Zahn. I have to say though, the actual escape was shorter than I expected and although the movie was long, I think more of the escape scenes and maybe less of the prison sequences would have made it better. Still, a very good flick. 3.5/5

Stardust. I missed the first half an hour of this, but was pretty entertained with the rest. A decent fantasy tale, and finally Robert DeNiro delivers a performance I liked for the first time in a while.

Dark Knight was sold out, checking it out tomorrow at 4. In the meantime, Watchmen trailer hit the web:

But keep in mind he's also the guy behind Sin City, which was a damn impressive movie.

Fraid not, friend. Robert Rodriguez co-directed Sin City with Frank Miller. Zack Snyder, of homoerotic 300 fame, is the creative mind behind the 2004 Dawn of the Dead remake. :x

 

That said, the trailer looks promising.
