AICN & Twitch Present International Eye Candy: R246 STORY, ASHES OF TIME, SSD, BAJO LA SAL or BENEATH THE SALT, and more!!

Published at: Aug. 10, 2008, 1:35 a.m. CST by merrick

International Eye Candy August 6, 2008 Yes, boys and girls, it is once again Todd from Twitch here with a new edition of International Eye Candy. And what is the big news of the past two weeks? How about ONG BAK star Tony Jaa having a total meltdown. And how melty was he? How about going and hiding in a cave for two months when he should have been directing the end of ONG BAK 2? No? Not melty enough? How about coming home and crying on national TV? No? How about going to the local police station to complain that he’s being followed by a car full of guys in safari suits? This, my friends, is how you go about sabotaging your own career. But enough of that … on with the eye candy! Up this week, Brazilian zombies! Russian slashers! Mexican serial killers! Ultraman times eight! Japanese dream detectives! Alien rock-outs! And a cute, fuzzy bunny! (I’m lying about the bunny but the rest of the stuff is in there.) Let’s start with the alien rock and roll, shall we? The project is R246 STORY, a Japanese anthology project that I’ve been all over since it includes just the second ever directorial effort by Japanese mega star Tadanobu Asano, who you probably know from Takashi Miike’s ICHI THE KILLER. But it gets better. Asano’s bit is written by Shinji Aoyama – a brilliant director in his own right who deserves a much larger global following than he has – and in it must engage in a guitar duel with space aliens to reclaim the drum kit that is the source of his power. It goes without saying that the power is awesome. Rock out Japanese-alien style here And here’s a heart-warming slice of family life from the UK, where apparently kidnapping young women and stuffing them into suitcases is an integral part of saying how much you care. Because MUM AND DAD really do care. It’s just that they don’t care about very nice things. Nope, they’re kind of nasty. Okay, really nasty. Okay, pretty brutal. Just don’t tell them I said so. Check the trailer and think how good your family looks by comparison And now for something about as different as is humanly possible. Wong Kar Wai’s ASHES OF TIME has long been one of the Hong Kong director’s most sought after films, mostly because it’s never existed in any remotely presentable form. Not until now, anyway. WKW is a notorious reviser of his own work, constantly fiddling with the edits, so it didn’t come as a huge shock when he announced that he was re-editing his only martial arts film for a new release but, surprise or no, it was a pleasing announcement. And now the new version has come and with it a new trailer that already looks about a zillion times better than any of the currently available DVD editions of this thing. Look at the pretty pictures here You know, sometimes I like to make sure that the films in this column flow smoothly from one to the next, organizing things to follow patterns and trends and such. And sometimes I just like to write about movies featuring kids getting shot through the head with an arrow. Guess what kind of day today is? The film is SSD, the aforementioned Russian slasher, and while it looks like a pretty stock teens-in-the-woods story it also looks pretty exceptionally well done. I’ve written about it in this column before but there’s a brand new full length trailer to check out now. Duck and cover, people. Duck and cover. And, once again, on to something completely different. I’m biased as hell on this one, having brought GENIUS PARTY BEYOND to Toronto for its second-ever screening outside of Japan a couple months back, but this animated anthology is one of the most aptly titled films ever. It is, indeed, genius. Studio 4C have collected the best and brightest of the Japanese animation world and turned them loose to create whatever their hearts desire and the results are spectacular. My personal favorite is the closer – titled DIMENSION BOMB – but there aint a dud to be found. The new trailer shows them all off to great effect. Blow your mind here. Though the rise of Mexican film hasn’t hit quite as hard as people expected with the arrival of Gael Garcia Bernal, Alejandro Innaritu and Guillermo Del Toro the wave continues to rise and the latest to catch the eye is upcoming serial killer thriller BAJO LA SAL or BENEATH THE SALT. You guessed it … preserved corpses turn up in a salt mine and the early buzz is already comparing it to SE7EN. Really impressive on the tech end and the cast is dead solid. You can get digging here. beyondthegrave.gif So … BEYOND THE GRAVE … serial killer movie set in a post apocalyptic world over run by zombies, or a zombie film that also happens to feature a serial killer? Your call. It’s fresh from Brazil, where a major genre boom is just gearing up, and while the budget limitations are evident the creature effects are great and the design of the world – lifted straight from the pages of 1950s, primary colored comic books – is a blast. Have a splattery time here I kind of doubt that there’s a whole lot of actual history in new Korean historical epic THE DIVINE WEAPON but there are a shitload of exploding arrows. And I like exploding arrows. The story? Chinese army of the threshold, superior weaponry needed to hold off the superior numbers, blah blah blah. Good cast, great production design, exploding arrows. That’s what you really need to know. Blow stuff up here Not quite sure how this one snuck up on me but Spanish maverick director Alex de la Iglesia – he of ACCIONE MUTANTE and DAY OF THE BEAST fame – has been working away in Spain on a new scifi sitcom due to start airing in September. Titled PLUTON VERBENERO there’s no trailer yet but there is an extensive behind the scenes reel that shows of his sets and design work and it’s looking like pretty vintage stuff. Check it out here Quick! Name the last truly great possession film! Personally, I’m pretty hard pressed to come up with one newer than THE EXORCIST. But that may be about to change with the imminent arrival of DOROTHY MILLS. The buzz on this one is building steadily and with a release in France just around the corner trailers and clips are starting to leak out so that we can see why. One trailer, four clips, to be precise, and this is creepy, unsettling stuff. Lights down, volume up. And we enter the home stretch with the latest by a true cult icon: TETSUO THE IRON MAN’s Shinya Tsukamoto. The new film is the second entry in his NIGHTMARE DETECTIVE franchise with Ryuhei Matsuda reprising his role as the reluctant – to the point of being suicidal – supernatural detective who can insert himself into people’s dreams. I’ve seen this one and while it’s more philosophical than the first it’s also really gooooooooood. But don’t take my word for it, there’s a brand new English subtitled trailer out there. Enter your dreams here How do you top a legend? By bringing EIGHT legends, baby! Get ready for rubber suited glory, it’s the trailer for the new ULTRAMAN movie which features not just ONE Ultraman but every distinct Ultraman from the run of the series, all eight of them with most (if not all) of the original cast brought back to don the suits. And why would you need eight Ultraman? Because you’ve got one seriously bad-assed man-in-suit rubber monster to battle, why else? This, friends, is how you do a legendary franchise right. Say it with me: Man in suit! Man in suit!

    ASHES OF TIME

    Soon I can retire my dear old VHS version. Actually, from the reviews that came out of Cannes it sounds like this REDUX isn't that different after all. Just a few trims and some new music.

    is something wrong with the ST3/Rogue talkback? I have been trying to post on it earlier today and it hasn't worked, nor has anyone else posted. Is something just fucked up on my side or is everyone having that problem? Oh and if that TB is totaled for some reason, I vote we all move here and give the foreign films that little extra boost.

    About Tony Jaa, I dunno, I get the feeling he cracked under the pressure of directing Ong Bak 2 went away (like we all feel like doing at ceartain times) and now hes back, hes got some bad suits in control of him, lawers and agents and shit, filling his head with money and how hes been getting taken advantage of, which is probly bullshit.

    since the last five posts are basically concerning another article posted on AICN, I figured I should post something else about this article. So freakin excited to finally see Ashes of Time.

  • Aug. 10, 2008, 5 p.m. CST

    Ashes of Time is a pretty good movie..

    by Jonah Echo

    The copy I had looked like dirt though. I'm excited to get this in a dvd format hopefully that has a nice clean print and maybe even a bluray release? The film is a great one, but it may have been too overpraised at this point to really hit the mark for many. It's well worth seeing though. <P> Around the same time, another film based off the same story was made, called Eagle Shooting Hero. It's worth seeing too, but so silly and ridiculous. Night and day difference from Ashes of Time. <P> I liked Nightmare Detective, but felt it was a bit of a slog.

    Kungfu..

    by Jonah Echo

    put Ultraman on hold, and put the Shaw Brothers Super Inframan at the top of the list. It's a mad, mad movie from the 70s involving an Ultraman-esque warrior, Inframan who battles the monstrous forces of Princess Dragon Mom, and does all this with a somewhat noticeable rip in the crotch of his designer costume(unintentional, not intentional..I think). Either way, its a fine piece of madness.

    Dorothy..the posession movie

    by Jonah Echo

    Is it just me, or does it seem like the current state of horror is mainly in the hands of foreign directors. And when said directors come over here, they are commisioned to do some doofy remake or franchise, or their film is turned into a dull american clone. <P> Count me in for Dorothy. I even liked that recent Emily Rose movie, and the other foreign film based on the same material, Requiem. Both seperate approaches to the story, both worth seeing I thought.

  • Aug. 11, 2008, 8:27 a.m. CST

    Jonah,

    by Lost Jarv

    there's a very good reason for that trend. When you think of horror coming from America at the moment it just seems to be an endless stream of Torture Porn, whereas mexicans, spaniards etc are doing other things.

    It had an ending that referenced Ultraman, and cheesy low-budget shows of it's ilk.

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    OK, let's get this baby in the top TBs. And I've never been keen on horror movies save for the well made Stephen King stuff and campy Raimi and Romero movies, but the American horror movie industry is indeed dire. The Saw and Hostel stuff just isn't entertaining on any level.

  • Aug. 11, 2008, 8:49 a.m. CST

    Beneath the Salt

    by Jonah Echo

    looks and sounds promising. Again, mexican/spanish filmmaking seems to really be heating up lately, particularly in these darker genre efforts. Anyone here see The Cold Hour? It's a nifty little sci-fi, horror film.

    by Jonah Echo

    Lets just start at the beginning..Nosferatu. To this day, still a creepy, evocative movie that I think captures the nature and tragedy of the vampire existence better than any other film I've seen on the subject, save for perhaps Herzog's take on it.

    The reason for foreign directors Jonah

    by ChittyChittyGangBang

    Most American studio heads still see the slasher/torture flick as a money maker.<p> The movies like the ones above seem to be more hit and miss, as the casual filmgoer wants to see Hostel, not The Exorcist.<p> Studios will follow the money, which usually means milking a genre dry and then moving on.<p> The foreign directors are seeing this and can get by with smaller budgets and more original stories to focus on a smaller and more specific audience.

  • Aug. 11, 2008, 8:56 a.m. CST

    The Vanishing..or Sporloos

    by Jonah Echo

    Has everyone seen this, the foreign version, not the english one? <P> If not, it's definitely worth a viewing. It's a strange, disturbing flick involving a man who has a fight with his girlfriend/wife and they are on a road trip. They stop at a rest stop and she disappears. At the same time, we are made privy to her abductor and his actions from almost the beginning. He is a family man who, after saving a child from drowning/or being hit or something, realizes he also has the capacity to do not only very brave things, bot something very terrible. <p> The man who loses his wife starts getting letters from the abductor, and eventually he begins to follow the path his girl took, hoping he has the courage to arrive at the final destination.

    How did I miss the Ultraman and exploding arrows

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    stuff earlier? Ultraman was a staple for me as a kid. It was rare that a Godzilla movie aired on the 7 or 8 TV stations we got in the late 70s, but Ultraman was on TBS everyday for a while there. That and Starblazers. I would run off the schoolbus and make a beeline to the TV to watch them. Best hour of TV ever as a kid.

    The Vanishing

    by Lost Jarv

    I've seen both and frankly don't bother with the American one. They gelded it. The same goes for Diabolique. <P>Jarv's movie weekend was very strange, but here are my thoughts anyway: <P>Sin City. I don;t know why I fet a need to watch this. But I honestly quite like it. <P>Die Hard 4 (Thank you Lovefilm. Not only do I own this, but does it sound remotely like "Streets of Fire")- Always loses me with surfing the fighter jet. And Timothy Olyphant just doesn't strike me as a badass. When he screams "You don't know me and have no idea what I'm capable of", my first thought is always something snide about his designer black shirt. <P>Princess Bride- epic <P>Bound- hmm, well.... I still think it's the best Wachowski film. <P>Child's Play 2- less said about that the better. <P>It was a strange mix.

    I would love to see that, as that makes the point that even the best do-gooders have to have an evil side.<p> Just as you can't have good without evil, good people sometimes do bad things just to realize how good they can be most of the time.<p>

    I watched Doomsday and Escape from New York

    by toadkillerdog

    Doomsday becaise Pillow and Jarv talekd so much about it. It was ok. Some good killing, but ultimately it just seemed too much of a mess to really hold together. Before I heard about Issac Hayes, I had planned to watch EFNY - because that is an obvious influence on D-Day. So, I put that on, and watched it for first time in about ten years. It holds up well, but, and I know this is sacrilege, Snake Plissken is not a top 5 badass. I mean, he can take anyone one-on-one. But after two of three get on him, he folds. Ok, he had an arrow in his leg, but Tony Jass - at least prior to his meltdown, would have laughed that shit off. Still, Plissken gets the job done. How about ranking Kurts badassness? His movies, and his ranking among others screen badassess?

  • Aug. 11, 2008, 9:10 a.m. CST

    Sin City? Eeeeeesh......

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    I consider Rodriguez to be one of the worst directors of all time. The cast is good indeed but there is so much worthless crap as filler. Clive's entire storyline for example. What the fuck was up with Michael Clark Duncan? I can't stand Rodriguez's cheap as original score. Someone needs to tell this guy he is an even worse composer than he is a director of photography.

    HOD...I really disliked the american version

    by Jonah Echo

    of Vanishing because it completely annihilated the villain. He was played by Jeff Bridges as a dirty, stringy sneering lunatic, and not as the otherwise completely normal man who decides to attempt evil that was in the original. One of the creepiest parts was where he is playing with his children and getting them to scream, so he can see how far screams carry at his house, and whether neighbors would notice screams. Also, the ending was a complete destruction of the original's point, and the coffee joke at the film's end was almost offensively wrong-headed. <P> Chitty, have you seen the movie?

    by toadkillerdog

    I read it last night - before it was taken down. This was a bizarre weekend. The locked TB. The mass bannings. The mass crying over the mass bannings. The flame wars. The Mods getting into it.

    2LDK

    by Jonah Echo

    2LDK is something of a dark comedy/horror from Japan that involves two aspiring actresses who get an apartment together(the 2 bedroom, living room, dining room, kitchen of the title, or something like that) and over the course of a few days learn that they loathe each other, and as they destroy each other's lives, they come to a showdown one night that involves, sais, chainsaws, the porcelain back of the toilet seat, drills and using household equipment as a makeshift taser. It's both humorous and intense. I recommend it.

  • Aug. 11, 2008, 9:18 a.m. CST

    by Lost Jarv

    it's got a sort of Mancini-esque tone to it. Kind of Reminds me of Peter Gunn. <P>Doomsday is a mess, but what a mess! It's better with beer, but I do understand that most won't like it. <P>

    Nightmare Detective..

    by Jonah Echo

    I actually rather liked the film. I've only seen it once, but it's a good atmospheric and occasionally unsettling story that provides a darker riff on the themes of Dreamscape(incidentally one of my fave B movies). I'm looking forward to ND2. Anyone else see Nightmare Detective. That would be a good one to send HOD, if you have it.

    I quite agree, that performance from Bridges in the Vanishing was one of the shittiest one note psycho performances I've ever seen. While not the worst remake ever, it certainly was not good.

    by Jonah Echo

    another suggestion to all: <P> Onibaba. More of a supernatural drama, but it involves two female killers during samurai era who seduce traveling warriors, and then kill them to survive during wartime. Eventually, one of the women in jealousy dons the demon mask of a samurai they killed, and finds the mask cannot be removed. It's a great film.

    Craziest movie ending?

    by kungfuhustler84

    What about Takashi Miike's Dead or alive? It's a crime drama through most of the film, but all of the sudden at the end guys are pulling bazookas out of nowhere and ripping their own arms off and throwing energy balls (ow whatever) at each other Dragonball style! And can anyone tell me the guy's name that throws the energy ball at the end? I think he's the host of all the kids in Battle Royale 2 as well. The guy has made some of the craziest faces at a camera ever in cinema history.

    Vanishing

    by Series7

    The original is no longer availble on Netflicks I think. I remember enjoying the re-make but I was like real young at the time. I do remember Bridges not being that scary, I thought Keifer should've been the bad guy, kind of funny they do the other roles much better. See Arlington Road or Blown Away for Bridges (Blown Away fucking great movie, Tommy Lee as a bad guy!) as the man trying to save his family. Watch anything else with Kiefer to see him play bad. Though Jeff should be a good bad guy, but for some reason he's not. If he really did suck in Vanishing, that should explain why he was sooooo terrible in Iron Man.

    A little off topic

    by Series7

    But I just watched the original Get Carter last night. While I enjoyed the remake for what it was, I think its because I can't ever not enjoy a Sly movie. But having seen I'll Sleep When I'm Dead, which pretty much is the same movie. And now I know what sort of film the Payback director was trying to make. I feel like Clive Owen is trying to be the new Micheal Caine. Just he can't pull bad ass off as well. <P> Get Carter fits into the Lost Jarv world of England where everybody is a well ard gangster lad who hit women and eat hulu hoops. Also everything seems a little gehttoish, whilst all the while eveyone is still polite and have a good sense of humor. Overall I really wasn't that surprised to see Cain beat people up, I thought I would be because he's always the nice elderly man now. But kind of like Freeman cussing or Denzel being a bad guy, it wasn't as shocking as critics make it out to be. Good movie, wish they used more of the bad ass sountrack they had.

    This TB and controversy..

    by Jonah Echo

    Best thing we can do is stick with this talkback, and stick with it for awhile, until it gets hard to load, and keep the conversations civil, fun and interactive. Being a bastion in the midst of instability is a good thing. However, I think we should refrain from going in other TBs and joining the ruckus, and coming back here to be genial. I don't that will count for much. I don't mean not posting elsewhere, I just mean getting involved in the kind of nonsense that seems to be DOMINATING this site currently. <P> These current hot TBs will fade, and then it will be us again, who have been maintaining top TBs on civil conversation, movie discussion, and even friendship since the beginning of July. That means we are a month and a half of continuing one ongoing sort of round table discussion of various geek topics. That's impressive. <P> Jarv, yea, that's why I asked for clarification. I think there were some answers I could give that wouldnt ruin the film for others. <P> Also, I read the MiraJeff wolfman TB. That must have been so humilating. Harry ignored his brown-nosing and theoretically (since he said you must be..if)called him a retard(rather harsh, but humorous) and then he threatened Jarv physically, which brought down wrath the likes of which I have rarely seen on here, and then someone posted a link to wired where he was sitting in a huddle like a little kid, in a pool of his own vomit, grasping an oxygen mask. And ontop of that, they finally took away his black box, leaving him a mess. <P> But, when did he lose the box exactly? And when did he spar with Mori. Thats what I want to read. <P> Also, a qoute from the Wired article. It's Mira's last statement before the fight. <P> "I'm the highest-profile target," Sneider says. "I hope he goes easy on me. I consider myself fairly good-looking, and I don't want to ruin that." <P> you are now officially the highest nothing, Mira.

    Jonah-- re: Tiny Zeus

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    The funny thing is I think Tiny thought he was making a serious religious film. I saw him about a year ago on one of the God channels (I watch sometimes for amusement) getting interviewed, and he was pimping A Night With The King I believe. He was saying how he wants to focus on movies with strong Christian messages from now on.....so maybe he saw Monster Ark as a film with a serious Christian message even though most of the time its just army dudes unloading machine guns on a CG demon thing.

  • Aug. 11, 2008, 11:05 a.m. CST

    by Jonah Echo

    I thought that too. Though, it seems like Tiny might be one of the guys that tries to make both kinds of movie. If anything his five minutes in Dark Knight are more positive than the entirety of movies like One Night with the King. <P> What I want to see is a christian themed film where Mr. T and Tiny and Chris Tucker form some sort of team that goes around fighting demons. We will call it "Trinity Force."

    We won't be able to compete with the controversy today

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    And to be honest, I don't mind. It's some good stuff out there. I'd love to know how Massa's review stays up even though Harry's came down. Someone needs to explain that because an embargo is an embargo. The studio isn't going to selectively enforce it.

  • Aug. 11, 2008, 11:14 a.m. CST

    Danny..

    by Jonah Echo

    I used to work at a place with several african american christians who would pray regularly for actors, Tiny included, for their families and for their success. And they were nothing less than sincere about it. And you gotta give Tiny credit for taking little bits like that role in Dark Knight, and using his physique and personality to help make a dramatic moment(whether you thought it cliche or not). Look no further than Mori's review, who actually told Tiny how powerful he thought the moment was, and Tiny took his phone info. <P> Drew, did Tiny ever call you?

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    But the embargo wasn't just on Harry because he was the one that got the screening? I think Massa saw it on his own through some other route right?

  • Aug. 11, 2008, 11:17 a.m. CST

    I loved Tiny's moment in TDK....

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    I thought it was one of the best moments of the film, and the best moment of his career. "You gonna do what you shoulda' did 10 minutes ago.....give it to me....tell them I took it with force." Fucking bad ass.

  • Aug. 11, 2008, 11:21 a.m. CST

    I thought the embargo was across the board

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    And anyone ignoring it would have to deal with Warners. Right now the only screenings are advance screenings, not paid, so the embargo should affect everyone until the 15th.<p>If Massa's review comes down sometime today then it makes sense. Otherwise, I smell something rotten in the state of Denmark.

  • Aug. 11, 2008, 11:27 a.m. CST

    I assumed it just applied to Harry.....

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    ...because he was the only one invited. Massa saw it through some other connection he doesn't have to come clean about so he can write whatever the hell he wants. But then again....how the fuck does Warners have this embargo in the first place? Why are they writers of this site allowed to write early reviews about every other film but this? What the fuck? If the review is not released before the film to help viewers choose whether or not it sounds like their kinda shit, then what the fuck is the point of reviews anyway? I trust the opinions of my personal friends over the twats that write for this site anyway. The only reason I read these reviews is because they have seen it before anyone else I know....WHAT THE FUCK?!!

    Danny..

    by Jonah Echo

    I would call myself a christian and a churchgoer, but with the exception of Megiddo:Omega Code 2(see my comments on it below)I have not watched any of those movies, and I have no plans to. Many times, despite their hearts being in the right place, they are often very poorly made and sometimes wrong headed. I find the contemporary christian viewpoint and mine don't typically mix very much. I think the message that should be put forth should be far more universal than it is usually represented as. Again, I respect the efforts Tiny and others are making, and I'd love to see a pro-christian film of worth, but I think it's message needs to be centered around love and not dogma, or conservative values, or some form of social segragation. I'm going to stop, since I'd much rather discuss movies here, than religious views. <P> As for Meggido, I suggest any B-movie lover watch it since it has Michael York as the anti-christ, Udo Kier as the devil, R.Lee Ermy as the Pres of U.S. and Michael Biehn as the hero, who actually reloads his gun while saying "The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away". It's quite a bit of bad movie fun.

  • Aug. 11, 2008, 11:47 a.m. CST

    that sounds fucking awesome

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    by Jonah Echo

    those are all 3 great films. Devil's Backbone and Lives are classics. Orphanage is also great. Enjoy! <P> I've had Diving Bell and the Butterfly on my queue for quite awhile, and havent gotten to it. However, I want to see Tell No One that's currently out, Negative Happy Chainsaw Edge which is from Japan, Dante 01 from France(I think) and as far as older films go, I'm looking forward to seeing Au Hazard Balthazar, Days of Glory and Aziris Nuna. Any idea where that last one is to see ?

  • Aug. 11, 2008, 12:10 p.m. CST

    Angel-A was kind of a disappointment..

    by Jonah Echo

    It was watchable though. Besson's best are Leon, Fifth Element, Big Blue and Subway. All of those are terrific fun at the movies. Messenger, Arthur and Invisibles and Angel-A feel like severely warmed over variations of the same director.

  • Aug. 11, 2008, 12:16 p.m. CST

  • Aug. 11, 2008, 12:52 p.m. CST

    Regarding Angel A...

    by Jonah Echo

    It was funny, and I actually quite enjoyed the main male lead of the movie. It's a lighter piece from Besson, and when I saw it, I think he had stated it was his last directed movie. As a result I was probably more disappointed because it wasn't the giant mega-epic action flick that should usher out Besson. Danny, based on your tastes(and I don't mean that flippantly) I think you will enjoy it.

    by Jonah Echo

    WDMC, I mean pillow, but if you overlook the flabby new age bits, and the continual utterings of "soul mate" and take it in it's sincerity, I think it has some power to it. Visually, there is no question it is worth a watch. I think they aren't quite able to wrap the whole thing up well, and that's why I don't think it's quite a classic, though I would easily put it in the company of other thoughtful, deeply visual movies even if it's a little short of stature next to them. Werner Herzog even has a cameo as a damned soul.

The tone is odd. I do understand now it's subtitle, and it's less wierd having seen the movie. <P> I saw Daisy, which is second only to Dark City as the best movie I saw this weekend. Loved that ending, or at least my interpretation of it. <P> Finally saw Zebraman which is also a pretty cool movie, and a definitely fun B-movie.

    by Xiphos_2

    I would not get to wound up about the future of AICN, these sort of "melt downs" happen about every 18 month or so. I think things reach a point of critical mass and then they erupt in situations like this past weekend.<p>After the major eruption and a few days of post event minishocks things return to normal. Its actually somewhat cathartic because it clears out many chuckle heads.<p> I've been banging around AICN since nearly the beginning of its run and it been this way since then. Sure, AICN has changed over the years, but that's to be expected. Besides myself, how many people are the same immature jackass they were twelve years ago? Times change, people change and even web sites change.<p>Now, Danny, on a personal note I'm hurt I didn't make your list of TBers who's opinion you trust. Sniff sniff, please look away I just have something in my eye. No I'm not crying its dust. sniff, sniff.

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    ...he laid out exactly why he felt wronged. Whats pathetic is that AICN actually has a rule not to cover Uwe Boll movies. What the fuck? And then they pimp Eli Roth and Rodriguez? Fuck that. Boll movies are 10 times as entertaining as both of them combined. His movies are shit....absolutely, but they are entertaining shit. This site is really pissing me off lately. <p> And Xiphos is opinionated about other things...I'm speaking movies. I have never heard a strong opinion of his on a film really.

    it's the way he went about it...

    by just pillow talk

    First, he aired it out in a talkback. Stupid. He was starved for the attention: look at poor little old me!<p>Second, he immediately launched into his little irate spiel. He was just biding his time hoping a talkbacker would ask him about it. The fact that he wrote a book on his poor hurt feelings...bah. <p>Perhaps if he wasn't an ass and challenged Jarv to a fight, I would feel sorry for him. <p>Then again, he's a writer who's a fighter.

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    I was stupid and voiced my opinion before reading through all that Mirajeff shit. I thought he was an actual AICN employee that just wasn't getting paid......I didnt realize he was just a guy sending in reviews. Like if I started sending in reviews for every film I saw and suddenly got all pissed in 6 months screaming, "WHAT THE FUCK AICN?!! Why aren't you paying me?!!" If he never tried to get in as a regular AICN staff member as Mori said, than he is a fucking moron for continuing to send in free content.

    Hey a MinorJeff conversation!

    by Xiphos_2

    I firmly believe I am among the reasons canvass back Jeff got kick to the curb. I was busting his balls so bad about his beat down at the hands of Uwe Boll he threatened to kick my ass and challanged me to a fight. I accepted the challange and like an hour later he was gone. That was fun.<p>Oh Danny I do have film opinions but honestly most films lately have been so vanilla that I don't even bother commenting on them I don't really care enough to. Plus I haven't seen a new movie since early June so I don't comment on things I have not seen.<p> Well its been fun but its nearly 11pm for me and I'm tired it was a long hot day so I'm off to bed.

  • Aug. 11, 2008, 2:51 p.m. CST

    Danny..

    by Jonah Echo

    Well, again, this is a geek news site. It's called Aint it Cool, so honestly, if they think Eli Roth is cool but Uwe isnt, it's up to them. Personally, I think Mori went above and beyond explaining things to Mira Jeff. <P> I've seen this sort of thing time and time again, one dude feeling his is perpetually wronged, and yet the problem was he was a loose cannon, and wasn't technically "working" for them. He has done nothing save post some reviews, a set visit or what not, and post in a black box. Several of the regular TBers here have done the same. I've been lurking round here since 97, and have contributed reviews, reports, other stuff under different names for awhile. Granted, I never had any sort of relationship with these people as Mira seems to have had, but his one so-called claim to fame was a disgraceful publicity coup that none of the site runners thought he should participate in. I think if Boll ever creates something that looks like a real movie, and is intended to be more than a way for him to extend his 15 minutes, I think they will review it. <P> This isn't a legit news site, or some sort of unbiased source. It's a geek site. MiraJeff would pick fights, ignore the staff, and then he wasnt even doing the "job" when they "took" it away from him. <P> Besides, I thought he was a bit of douche back before I knew he threatened Jarv(NOOOOT COOOOOL) and melted down. I didnt know any of that until today. And it was sad to read. <P> The best though was: "god there's so much more that i want to say but i can't get into right now because believe it or not, i actually have a date." <P> I hope Uwe took him someplace nice.

    He even said his whole identity was wrapped up in in mirajeffaicn name, and his blackbox. Or words to that effect. Then he had it taken away.

    Fred, you are right..

    by Jonah Echo

    I should have more compassion. It was sad to read that mostly. Still, it sounds like AICN did help his career, so it's hard to feel too bad for him. I hope he works on his sense of himself, and his emotions, as well as that sense of entitlement. Right now they tend to overshadow the other qualities. Fred is right though, he was hurt, and once the gates opened, he should have signed off but kept writing. I give Mori credit for handling it with some sensitivity.

I called him a liar about saying he would answer questions about the Darabont Indy script (before it leaked) and he never did......so I thought he was under some gag order or something. He banned me and I emailed him and he took the time to explain he was really fucking busy right now and talked about his kid and his scripts and shit on email and said he is anything but a liar and he doesn't appreciate that comment. I apologized and he reactivated Dick Blood a second later. He was very cool about it and I kinda sensed he didnt like being a hard ass to me.....he didn't enjoy it like most would.

But they took away my chance to cure him. Your father threw me out. I remember that day so well. Every moment. Every sensation. Walking into the house. The feeling of the handle of the knife in my hand. I knew I was doing a father's work, fulfilling a father's mercy... but then she surprised me. It was as if she and the knife merged. You cannot imagine the unbearable finality of it. And in that one moment, I took everything that was dear to me and transformed it into nothing more than a memory. "

    Thin Red Line - war in the Pacific. The focus is on moral damage rather than physical, though there is plenty of physical damage. It drifts between the visceral and the poetic and it's quite unlike any war film I've seen before.<p>I like it a lot. But I bet everybody here's got a different take on it.

    Mel in Patriot

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    Fucking gold from start to finish. He clearly loves all his children so damn much......and that moment when his kids are watching there father hack those red coats to piece and his hair a disarray in his face and he has blood all over his arms-- and the boys realize their Father was once an animal. Crazy/scary moment to think about for a kid.

  • Aug. 11, 2008, 3:44 p.m. CST

    Thin Red Line is amazing

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    But some are turned off by it because it is a slow, psychological, calculating film that can be a little tedious. You gotta throw out what you think a war movie is before viewing. This is all about the draining psychology of it.

    Thin Red Line.

    by HoboCode

    Came out the same year as Saving Private Ryan. both were nominated for best pic at the oscars. Thin Red Line is directed by Terrence Malick and is and infinitely better film than SPR. Although if you listen to the mouthbreathers who complain it's "two hours of sunlight through trees" you may not like it. I've been waiting for an extended cut dvd for a million years.

    For me it's either Apocalypse Now (which I know kind of isn't one), A Bridge Too Far or Full Metal Jacket. I personally would love to see a war movie based around the German assault on Russia or something similar to the Dirty Dozen but set in World War I. Anybody got suggestions. I have already seen Enemy At the Gates.

I would never knock those with limited ability, its like knocking a female for having small tits. But its the fact that many hail Zimmer as being some amazingly talented composer, which he is simply not. I do admit Thin Red Line and Gladiator are great scores.

    Lamdmark movie. i love the French new wave, and that one may have been the grandaddy of them all. Not my favorite of the new wave, but it ranks very high. A must see for any serious movie lover.

    Good call on We Were Soldiers

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    Great movie. It hinted at being heavy handed at times but it was a gut wrenching film. Great book too.<p>It's clear sunny skies here. But then again, that's all it is here during the summer. We're in the middle of yet another drought. Water levels at their lowest in 10 years.<p>I was bored so I spent the whole morning looking at places with Google Maps. All the places I've never been like Sydney, Cairo, Hong Kong. I really need to get my life started so I can travel the world. I'm tired of sitting at this desk.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 8:21 a.m. CST

    Intervention? Never heard of it.

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    It appears that Red Baron movie has already had it's theatrical run in Europe, or at least Germany. So I expect the DVD will be out soon, even if it's from a different region.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 8:25 a.m. CST

    I see Danny up above said something...

    by ChittyChittyGangBang

    about Clone Wars being great on ecstacy.<p> A little advice..DO NOT watch a horror movie or anything that has a big creature.<p> We tripped one night and watched Jurassic Park.<p> Later that night I SAW the T-Rex coming through the trees and my friends said I was in the back seat of the jeep hollering for everyone to get in quick.<p> Creeped me out.<p> Also don't watch Dumbo either, as you will lose your mind during the pink elepahnt scene and cry your eyes out when he visits his mother in the little jail.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 8:29 a.m. CST

    But that scene in Dumbo

    by ChittyChittyGangBang

    when he visits his mother in jail gets me even when I don't use the help of drugs.<p> If you don't get a swell in your throat during that scene, well, let's just say check your heart and make sure it's not made of stone.<p> By the way I haven't done any drugs since the T-Rex encounter.<p> I still drink beer, wine and whiskey though. Also cigars and cigarettes on occasion.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 8:32 a.m. CST

    Don't you guys have a lottery HOD?

    by ChittyChittyGangBang

    My bro-in-law was up there and thought he won $21,000 and he was freaking out.<p> But he rechecked and it was three dollars. I can't remember if he bought it in NC or not.<p> Either way, if I won big in lotto I would indeed travel far.<p> I would also do the whole dart behind my back to giant map of the world bit.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 8:41 a.m. CST

    We do indeed have a lottery

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    They call it the "education lottery" since it's meant to generate funds for our school system. It's been a colossal failure though. Not enough interest.<p>Nothing wrong with drugs, if that's your thing. I'm a firm believer in legalizing drugs. If someone wants to smoke weed, that's there business. It's far safer and less fattening than getting drunk.<p>Personally, I enjoy a good cigar buzz accompanied by the warm feeling of a good glass of port but to each his own.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 8:46 a.m. CST

    And if my boat ever comes in

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    I'll do the dart on the world map thing myself. I'll go anywhere except for the hot zones. Hell, I could probably even go to Cuba if I flew to Canada and then whipped out my Canadian passport and booked a ticket to Havana.<p>Going back to Europe is my priority. I'd love to take my mom back to the homeland (Holland) before she passes.

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    It really wasn't a good movie but it's one of those rare silly movies that I know I should hate but that I give a pass to. And the effects were impressive, especially the attack on the blimp.<p>Greece? Excellent call. In fact, going to look up Athens on Google Maps and fawn like a schoolgirl.

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    I've marked my territory on just about any structure imaginable.<p>The one time in my life I got stoned, I got super stoned. I walked into a ladies bathroom at a pool hall and thankfully no women came in while I spent half an hour staring at the wall and wondering why there weren't any urinals.

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    Done that shit twice. The first time I just instantly started puking all over the front of myself. The second time I tripped for about 18 hours and later found out it was laced with something.

    I walked into a Krystal's (great tiny hamburgers) completely naked (well I did have running shoes on) and ordered.<p> The weird thing is they took my order and the entire staff came to the front to see what the commotion was.<p> I gave them the money and took my food and they never called the cops.<p> But some stupid girl in the parking lot did and we had to hide behind a grocery store for about 30 minutes while the cops poked about the parking lot.<p> I went to a party later on next door to my little duplex naked, but they made me put a sock on my private area.<p> I am so glad I don't abuse drugs and alchohol anymore.

Others say Lionsgate made their own cut and she didn't like theirs so she is re-editing it herself.

    With Indy IV I was expecting an overall phenomenal movie. With Punisher I'm expecting 5 minutes of dialogue and 120 minutes of bloods, guts, explosions, and loud fucking music. And I pray they sprinkle in some one liners......they alright got that line, "Sometimes I'd like to get my hands on God...." line in the trailer.

    by Jonah Echo

    it's 90 minutes of sporadic, spastically edited action scenes? That was my feel from the trailer. It would be nice if it's good though.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 11:10 a.m. CST

    Clarification required

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    Danny, my boy, I enjoyed the first Punisher, ten bucks says I'll enjoy this one. Yes, I like my action movies to be hard R and this looks like it will deliver to me. Remember, a more forgiving cinephile does not exist.<p>I didn't see Wanted but will on DVD and like Crank and Shoot Em Up, I'll probably enjoy it too. If it requires a glass of rum, so be it.<p>Jonah, it warms my heart that you enjoyed Mr. Socrates. It had some great performances.<p>As far as horror goes, I need to remind you, I'm just not a horror guy. I won't even watch the Japanese version of The Ring because it doesn't appeal to me. I watched R-Point and the Korean Red Eye and that stuff doesn't hold my interest. I'm not even a fan of the Hollywood stuff. I watched the first Nightmare and Halloween and Friday and that's it. I can't tell you anything else about Jason or Michael and Freddy.<p>Saw and Hostel sealed the deal for me. If I want to see gore, it best be because a mace or ax or 9MM slug is taking someone's head off.<p>But what I will do with the next package is send out different genres. For you married guys I can get out some dramas and romantic comedies. For you single guys......I'll figure something out.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 11:11 a.m. CST

    Ha, not a fan, eh Danny?

    by Jonah Echo

    I'm an Eisner fan, hence my interest. If it is revealed that it isn't true to Eisner or strays into Sin City territory, then I'm out. As is, I disliked Sin City, and was entertained by 300, but don't understand the extreme love for it.

    by Jonah Echo

    When I said horror I was thinking of the stuff like Antarctic Journal or R-Point etc. Maybe just supernatural. I've been saving Antarctic Journal because of it's paranormal slant.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 11:16 a.m. CST

    great thing about Socrates..

    by Jonah Echo

    was while it had a plot that somewhat resembled Infernal Affairs or Korean crime thrillers, it did posess good writing, great acting and it had a pace to it that I liked. It made it easier to digest than most Korean crime flicks. The training of the lead was by far my favorite segment of the movie. And, all in all, it turns out to be quite good.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 11:17 a.m. CST

    the first Punisher film....

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    It was overall a bit too soft. But it had a lot of good shit packed in there.....the fight scene with Kevin Nash beating the shit out of Tom Jane for instance. The car crashes......most of the end assault. The opening family massacre on Castle's family. A lot of good stuff in there. I think it was a huge mistake to set it in Florida. Tax breaks are a bullshit excuse to completely change the feel and atmosphere of a film. If you don't have the budget.....then don't make it. It also needed another pass at the script and someone that wasn't a first time director. It just felt a little too flat and uninspired. But that being said....it is still a hell of a lot of fun. And Travolta's got some great one-liners, "She caught the train...." for instance.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 11:20 a.m. CST

    The only part of Punisher I enjoyed was

    by Jonah Echo

    the various assassins sent to kill him, like the evil guitar guy and the giant Russian. I sort of enjoyed the apartment complex misfits, but the rest was IMO rather boring. And seeing Roy Schieder was also a plus.

    Hard-R action movie

    by ChittyChittyGangBang

    With so few I feel like I have to take what I can get.<p> I want Rambo-level gore though.<p> I don't know why I like that so much.<p> That said, I enjoyed the first Punisher and wished they would have saved "The Russian" until the end.

    Summer 2007 started with Spidey 3..

    by Jonah Echo

    and if I were rating that, I'd say it's a 2.5 out of a 5. I wasn't hugely letdown by it, because while I enjoyed the first two films, I, for some reason, was very wary of the next Spidey. I guess my reservation was that I wasn't sure how they would cram so much in. And it looks like I was right. <P> I enjoyed it as a summer special effects movie for a single viewing. It had a ton of problems, and sadly they were the types of things that prevented it from taking it's good parts, it's solid ideas and it's cool sequences and getting them in line and making them form a solid movie. It's more of a missed opportunity than a disappointment, but yea, I'd come down just slightly on the positive side, making this an O.K. movie.

    Don't expect greatness from Antarctic Journal

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    It is uneven at best. It has some good performances and even though it's all snow, I liked the cinematography but as with most Korean thrillers bordering on the supernatural, it falls apart by the end. It's worth watching once though.<p>As far as Asian supernatural stuff goes, I've seen more than I own but I should be able to hook you up.

    whoa this is weird....from Lexi Alexander's official site....

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    I guess she is off Punisher. She took down all the old blogs about the film and now she just has one post where she talks about some expensive sports car and closes the entry with this..... <p> " Now for me it’s time to move on and look towards the future. The way I see it, no matter if you work in an Ice cream shop, or a textile mill or in lovely peaceful Hollywood, life is all about getting the full experience. If things would always go smooth, it wouldn’t even be a half ass experience. You gotta win it all, lose it all, start from the beginning, get it all back and so on. Exciting times. " <p> Weird.

    Bug

    by Jonah Echo

    Saw that last summer too I think. Was a 3 out of 5. If any of you have seen it, it totally felt like the edgy indie stuff you could find on video back in the late 90s, like Cube or Chasing Sleep or whatever. I think Ashley Judd was awesome in the role, and in fact all of the actors (Harry Connick Jr. included) did well. It's stage play origin often made it feel more low budget than simply claustrophobic, but overall it worked well. I liked it and found it both kind of funny and kind of sad. I kept waiting for it to really take off, but it was mostly slowburn until it just became "burn".

    Here's my breakdown of Summer 2007

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    <p> Spiderman 3 -- I liked it. It was a pretty fun time. Doesn't have the replay value of the first two but.....wait.....a month later I watched the first two on DVD and realized they call kinda suck. I'm fucking sick of Spiderman....moving on. <p> I refused to see Pirates, Oceans 13, Rush Hour 3, or Evan Almighty.....they all looked like bullshit. <p> Fantastic Four 2 -- I liked it. A lot better than the first film. I really liked the work on The Surfer. If I was 10, this movie would fucking rock. <p> Transformers -- Yup...I saw it. First time with my brother back to back with Die Hard 4. Its funny because I thought Transformers would be the slightly better of the two. PG-13 Die Hard....what the fuck? No smoking? Fuck you. Turns out I almost fell asleep in Transformers and then I had a damn fun time with Die Hard at 11:00 at night! I couldn't really tell if I liked Transformers though....there was so much shit on the screen, I couldn't really judge it until I watched it with a friend on DVD and realized, Holy shit!! This movie is trash!! <p> Harry Potter -- Awesome awesome awesome. These movies rock. Always have a damn fun time with them. My only complaint was it was released in the summer....what the fuck? Potter should be fall/winter films.

    by Series7

    TMNT - Best Turtles EVER! <P> FFFFFFAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRTTTTTTTT! <P> Die Hard 4! &$&*ing Great! <P> FFFAARRRTTTT <P> Oh the Simpsons movie is pretty good. <P> FAAAARRRRRTTT <P> Wow Sunshine was only in theaters for a weekend. <P> FAAAAAARRRRRTTT!!!!!!!!!!!! All the way till 2008! 07 Sucked. <P> Honorable mentions: 300 (just the trailer), The Condemded, Ratatioulle, Grind House, Hot Fuzz, Aquen Teen Movie, and the Pirates movie for being the only entertaining one of the bunch. I would put TWBB on there, but since 99% of the people who saw that movie in theaters saw it in Jan 08 doesn't really give it that 07 stink.

    The sad thing about

    by Series7

    Transformers, besides that useless mind blowing effects that somehow didn't win an Oscar? Was that for a movie where a giant ass kicking semi truck robot should be the lead charachter, it didn't even have the most awesome scene involving a semi truck. That goes to Die Hard. No matter how over the top that scene was you know you loved every second of it the first time you saw it.

    Yea, I'll do one big list too.

    by Jonah Echo

    Spidey 3 2.5/5 I thought it was O.K. but never returned to it. <P> Bug 3/5 I enjoyed it and found it a creepy little movie. <P> POTC 3- 3.5/5 This is where I differ from most of you guys. I actually really enjoyed this movie. Loved the scene with the crabs and the ship, loved Barbossa back, the giant battle at the end. Yes, there were some serious bits that were off-the Pirate Elders scene, the entire character played by Chow Yun Fat. Yet I still had fun with it and it reminded me in spirit of the Harryhausen myth epics of yesteryear, but of course not as good. <P> Shrek 3- 1.5/5 BLAH! <P> Oceans 13- 2/5 Yawn! <P> Paris Je T'aime-4/5 I loved this movie. Not every short film hit it's mark perfectly(while others did, i.e. Coen bros.) but the parts added together made an endearing whole. <P> Ratatouille-5/5 Yea, I LOVED it. <P> 1408- 3.5 This was a good creepy, brief but effective horror movie. It does what it needs to do, and it does it really well. Cusack was great in it. <P> 28 Weeks Later- 3/5 A fun but not spectacular horror flick. I enjoyed it, but was in no way comparable to the great original. <P> Die Hard 4- 3/5 I liked it. It was fun. A good time. <P> Transformers- 3/5 Dopey, but it had giant robots and for some reason it's silly sci-fi tone worked for me. <P> Harry Potter 5- 4/5 Yea, it was awesome. <P> Sunshine-4/5 We have been over this, but fix the last third and this might have been a 5. <P> Simpsons Movie-3/5 Loved watching it, but barely remembered it after the fact. Which is not typical for the Simpsons, where Im qouting lines for months after. <P> Paprika-4/5 Great anime. Trippy, beautifully designed, and has a cool story with interesting characters. <P> Stardust-4/5 A great little fantasy movie. Underrated, even now. <P> Bourne Ultimatum-4/5 Easily the best of the Bourne movies. <P> Becoming Jane-3.5/5 Yea, make fun of me. I liked it. Alot. <P> Daywatch- 3/5 I enjoyed it, and thought it was better than the first film.

    Summer 2008

    by Jonah Echo

    1. Iron Man-4.5/5 I was not prepared to like this as much as I did. I didnt follow it religiously through it's production, and I think that helped. The film did feel like a fleshed out version of the trailer, but everything was so well done, and beyond technical proficiency there was a clarity and simplicity to it, and there was actual joy in the movie-joy in performances, joy in action scenes, joy in special effects. It was a great marriage of the best aspects of 80s summer films and 90s summer films to give us one of the most entertaining superhero movies yet. <P> Speed Racer-4/5 I told everyone all year long how this would be the giant bomb of 2008. And I was right about that part. But I was SO wrong about it's quality. I personally feel that the Wachowski's have created something as good as The Matrix here. The problem with gauging this is that SR is a fresh, mind-bending action flick for kids, and Matrix was for teens and adults. But to be honest, it's every bit as fun, creative and sometimes overly excessive as that other movie of theirs. Yea, call me out. Go ahead. <P> Prince Caspian-4/5 Again, didnt expect this. I only liked the first one. This one was a great fantasy movie, and expanded the world, utilized it's child actors in ways that didnt make me want to slap them, and actually gave some of the Potter films a run for their money in the darkness and poignancy department. <P> Indy 4- 4/5 I loved it. I kept waiting to hate it. I was almost disappointed that it wasn't horrible, because except for some cgi monkeys, I didnt feel like there was much to criticize Lucas for. <P> this is getting long, gotta split it up..

John Leguizamo was in it? Yeah, I don't remember that. I do remember so horrible fireplace scene. And an opening attack on an airport that felt neutered.<p>Good list LibWar.

    by Jonah Echo

    Son of Rambow-4.5 This one is coming soon guys. I definitely want us to synchronize a watching. I think you will all love it. So far it's on my best of 08 list. <P> The Fall-5/5 For me, an almost perfect movie. I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this. It's that special kind of movie that you long to own on dvd even as the lights are coming up after your first viewing. Where you walk by the ticketbox on your way out and briefly consider seeing it again, immediately. <P> Children of Huang Shi-2/5 Chow and Yeoh in a movie together again, but they don't share any scenes and they play second fiddle to some bland characters. It's watchable. Thats it. <P> The Happening-1/5 HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! <p> Incredible Hulk-3.5 Wasn't perfect, but really really liked it. But then I really like Ang Lee's version as well. <p> Wall E-5/5 Brilliant. <P> Journey to Center of the Earth-3/5 I enjoyed it, and in 3d. It wasnt as bad as Harry says. <P> Hellboy 2-4.5/5 Just awesome. Really, I know some didnt like it, but this one really hit the mark for me and my expectations were pretty high by the time I saw it. <P> Dark Knight-5/5 Deserves its accolades and success. <P> X-Files 2-3.5/5 Odd, but I liked it quite a bit, and it was good to see the duo again. <P> Kung-Fu Panda in Imax-4/5 I loved this movie! Another that caught me by surprise.

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

Some shit looked amazing for the time (his CG cape for instance) other shit looked embarrassing (werewolf devil). <p> I had the soundtrack to this thing...fuck that thing rocked.

    Daredevil gets a bad rap....

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    Its not nearly as bad as people make it seem. There are some scenes that should go (playground wire-fu shit) but all in all its an okay movie and Affleck was decent in the role. I have yet to see the R rated cut....anyone catch that?

    R-rated cut?

    by toadkillerdog

    Dardevil?

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 12:55 p.m. CST

    its unrated Daredevil.....here is info

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    The 30 minutes of additional footage adds an important subplot about the murder of a hooker which is pinned on street thug (Coolio). The fight sequence at the end between Kingpin and Daredevil is longer and more involved. Many of the fight sequences are cut with an "R" rating movie in mind (and that's what this DVD version received as its rating).

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 1 p.m. CST

    it's odd, because the "unrated" cut

    by Jonah Echo

    actually ditches the sex scene altogether on Daredevil. It's actually a bit better movie, but still not awesome. However, I thought Daredevil was fine. WAAYY better than Ghost Rider.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 1:01 p.m. CST

    I have the Unrated version of Daredevil

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    My wife bought it for me. And she never buys me movies. I have yet to watch it though.<p>I'm curious to see the director's cut of Punisher though.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 1:02 p.m. CST

    Jonah

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    Is there any added violence or is it mainly just more storyline kinda stuff? What would make it R?

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 1:02 p.m. CST

    Agree on Daredevil being decent

    by ChittyChittyGangBang

    I liked when Bulleyes broke the glass and used them as weapons.<p> But I also agree on Elektra. I was bored to tears. I always wanted Garner to take up the Firestarter role and give it some action.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 1:05 p.m. CST

    Also about Spawn

    by ChittyChittyGangBang

    One of only two movies where I liked the soundtrack better (Singles being the other one). I have the Spawn soundtrack on my Ipod and it is very good workout music.<p> Favorite part is when Spawn looks down after doing a defensive transformation and says simply "Hell yeah."<p> I still laugh at that scene and where they ran out of money for the pixal devil. Looked like he was made of Legos.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 1:06 p.m. CST

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 1:07 p.m. CST

    Danny..

    by Jonah Echo

    I think the violence is a little harder, but it's still not gonna make you say "HOLY CRAP, LOOK AT THAT!". What is never said is that all UNRATED cuts are that way because they are adding new footage to an already approved cut, and in order to earn a rating they would have to resubmit it for a rating. If you have ever watched the unrated cut of something and wondered why it was that way, since it technically wasn't harder than the original, this is why. All those horrors and comedies that add UNRATED to their titles are usually full of it. If you added new footage to March of the Penguins and didn't resubmit it for a rating, you would have MARCH OF THE PENGUINS: THE UNRATED SPECIAL EXTREME EDITION.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 1:08 p.m. CST

    Empire Records soundtrack....

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    Better than the movie.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 1:09 p.m. CST

    Meet Joe Black has better soundtrack then movie..

    by Jonah Echo

    as does The Village. But Im talking scores, and not necessarily a "soundtrack" of songs.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 1:10 p.m. CST

    Oh and another thing Jonah

    by ChittyChittyGangBang

    I actually saw that movie about the killer lift or elevator thing.<p> I rank it right above the killer sweater-making machine in the Mangler.<p> I always laugh at The Mangler because we always called people with both sexual organs "Boston Manglers".<p> Needless to say I was disappointed when I saw the actual movie.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 1:15 p.m. CST

    Meet Joe Black

    by ChittyChittyGangBang

    The movie was very long and felt even longer in the theater.<p> Big surprise that Death's weakness is high-dollar poon.<p> Isn't that most people's weakness?<p> Do agree on the score for it and the score for The Village which is amazing.<p> The Gravel Road and What Are You Asking Me are stunning works.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 1:16 p.m. CST

    Jonah... I know this...

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    Most of the time Unrated shit is crap. But the Director's Cut of Daredevil was the original version submitted which got an R rating. Then the studio wanting him to deliver a PG-13 and trim it down to a shorter running time.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 1:16 p.m. CST

    I like Meet Joe Black....

    by Jonah Echo

    Danny-Yea, the main difference is in the final fight with Kingpin, some of the blows are connecting, and in other scenes the violence is intact. It's less jump-cutty than the original, for those reasons. There may be more language. I don't recall Danny. <P> Also, I liked Meet Joe Black, but the score is better than the movie. In fact the score elevates the movie.

  • Aug. 12, 2008, 1:30 p.m. CST

    Danny - he has made several

    by toadkillerdog

    Cool Wolrd. Interview with a vampire. Seven. 12 monkeys. Fight Club. Those are just off top of my head.

    Film scores galore!

    by ChittyChittyGangBang

    If you have access to Itunes or feel like doing a little shopping, you can get great deals on film scores.<p> There always seems to be a "Best of" cd or package with Itunes.<p> Can't really go wrong with James Newton Howard, John Williams (of course), Clint Mansell, Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard (Gladiator), Howard Shore, Klaus Badelt, Michael Giacchino, Bill Conti.<p> I have really just scratched the surface, but you just have to investigate and see what you like.

    by ChittyChittyGangBang

    Ecspecially when they allow you to use your credit card and just click away.<p> Go to Wal-Mart, Big Lots, K-Mart or wherever and we must be the only people on earth who buys these scores, as they are discounted heavily.<p> There was a two or three disc Williams hits that was just over ten bucks at Walmart.<p> Also good place is pawn shops, as most people (whether stolen or whatever) don't even take the wrapping off and try and get a little money from pawning it.<p> Of course be careful as I witnessed a mugging the last time I went to one around here.

    by Jonah Echo

    For those that have hi-def, or those who dont, what movies are worth owning in hi-def? Having bluray for a handful of months now,(since May) I try to balance what I pick up between reg dvds and blurays. If I'm buying something brand new release, I usually go bluray, but I'm also hesitant about restocking my collection. So far it's been for stuff I, or my wife, really love and feel would benefit from bluray. <P> Any thoughts?

    by Series7

    I know I'm behind like always. <P> First off HOD thats awesome! <P> Secondly my high school physics teacher was an extra on Meet Joe Black (all his scenes got cut, surprised cutting was made on that film) and while not really liking the film he said that those scenes where Friori is supossed to be cold that that was natural for her because she was unheathly skinny. That her and Brad Pitt were huge dicks and never talked with the extras, they just hung in their trailers, while Hopkins was out with the extras the whole time telling jokes and stories and drinking with them. Personally I would prefer to hang with Hopkins any way. He seems like a crazy old man, who you probably couldn't keep up with.

    I was at a get-together Friday night and someone brought up Indy IV (I wish Danny could have been there).<p> Come to find out Lucas and Speilberg were having trouble finding just the right hat, as the past person or company had stopped making them.<p> So this guy says that the hats for Indy IV were made just one over from the town I live in.<p> I thought that was weird and wondered how in the hell that came about.<p>

    Ended up loving that movie, only saw it because my buddy asked me to return some movies for him to BB and that was one. <P> As for Lars I agreed with Emily Mortimer character when she goes off on Lars for pretty much just being a dick. And the movie really didn't go anywhere.

    Saw both Series..

    by Jonah Echo

    Advent Children is just singularly for people who played games. It's like a long cut scene. As I didnt play the games, my enjoyment was limited. It honestly felt about like watching a glossier version of a scifi channel original in the sense that I didnt know what was going on, why it was happening, nor did I care, but lots of potentially cool stuff was on the screen so I kept looking at it. <P> Spirit's Within was interesting. I saw it the night before it came out, because we had friends who worked at the Regal, and let us in at like 1 a.m. to preview the print. So, it was me(who hadn't played any of the games except the first for NES and the second for SNES), my 3 college buds who all ADORED the games, and about ten other geeks who all wanted to see the movie succeed. And I was really tired. I loved the animation, and didn't mind the story and regard the movie as a decent film, but it's just a little too cold for my tastes. It feels like it holds you at a distance. Part of me thinks if it had been live action people, I would have hailed it as a masterpiece. As it is, it was that rare oddity in he summer of 2001: a movie that didn't suck.

    by Jonah Echo

    I loved the movie Lars. I don't think the movie persay meanders, it's just it's all about it's characters, and it tracks internal growth mostly, so it can seem slow. However, all whom I've showed it to have loved it. <P> Best gauge: Did you like The Station Agent? If you enjoy that sort of film, Lars might work for you. It worked for me in a big way. It was def one of my top ten last year.

    I saw Advent Children with someone who played the game like FF7 like three times. I had put a good amount of hours into the game, but never got further then the first disk. But he kept talking to me like we were on the same level of knowledge, I was like yeah this looks really cool, but I got no idea why its important. As for Spirits, I really liked that movie, own it on the DVD. I didn't understand why people hated it so much.

    Chitty - The British are different

    by toadkillerdog

    I do not mean that in a bad way! hah! British actors have no fear or reluctance from moving between TV and movies and stage. Be it high drama or lowest schlock. American actors, still only want to work in movies, and take TV as a stepping stone. Money though, trumps all. You would think being in the biz a long time would earn you something, maybe it has, I am just speculating about Cloris Leachman - who BTW was a fine looking woman in her youth and middle age. But Patrick Ewing put it best when it came to making money. "Yeah, we make a lot of money, but we spend a lot too". <p> Remember how Robert Urich ended up? Selling tongue cleaners on TV. Acting is a hard biz.

    vietnam moives and meltdowns

    by chipps

    I still say you can't go past platoon. There is an aussie one called, 'the odd angry shot' and hamburger hill. I'm in the reserves and these two guys joined our unit at the same time, and they look similar. One moved on before too long but he was the first to join. Everyone from the officers to the sergent (our platoons only have one) down get the second guy confused with the first guy, so i started calling him spagetti. he says 'why do you call me spagetti?' i say, have you ever seen hamburger hill? He says no. so i tell him, there is guy in hamburger hill and no one know how to say his name so they call him spagetti. he has a meltdown about it and then he pretty much dies in the next scene. he didn't laugh

    Man Bad LT.

    by Series7

    Was not the movie I was expecting it to be. I don't know what all the hoopla is about Werner Herzog directing a remake (sequel?) to it, it pretty much plays out like a typical Herzog film. The whole movie was a lot more cerebral and full of Harvey Keitel trying to cry. Lets face it though Harvey does not cry, he physically can't. <P> Though the movie reminds me of a former friend of mine who ended up getting his life fucked because of drugs.

    bad superhero movies

    by the milf lover

    I didnt like Spawn, but then I didnt like the comic either. I refuse to watch Ghost Rider just because its Nic Cage. I still havent seen any of The Crow sequels, but the original is one of my favorites. <p> Catwoman is underrated and doesnt deserve all the hate it got. Yeah it was pretty damn bad, but the actors did a decent job given the script they had to work with, plus Halle in that suit was hot! And Sharon Stone as the evil indestructible makeup mogul, what a villain concept! If you look at it as just some dumb movie and forget its called Catwoman its entertaining enough, kinda like the american Godzilla was a cool giant lizard movie. <p> Elektra on the other hand was boring as hell, too bad because they had some cool villains like the tattooed guy and Natassia Malthe as Typhoid Mary.. mmmm hot. I loathed Daredevil, but I should see the Director's cut. Tank Girl was good stupid fun, Malcolm McDowell is always a good thing about any movie, and I kinda like Lori Petty (probably too much for my own good, is she still doing anything?). And every 3 from marvel is crap: Blade Trinity, X-Men 3, Spidey 3.... good thing they wont make Fantastic Four 3.<p> And dissing the Matt Salinger Captain America movie is wrong, that shit cost about $68.35 to make and is funny as hell! I wish I still had the vhs...

  • Aug. 13, 2008, 1:36 a.m. CST

    also, I watched the SAW movies this weekend

    by the milf lover

    Well, the first 3, didnt get #4 yet. I know you guys, especially Danny if I recall the earlier posts correctly, didnt seem to like them much, but I really enjoyed them. well the first two at least, 3 is pretty boring and a bit too long. I woudnt call them horror, just brutal thrillers. Shawnee Smith getting throw into the pit of syringes in part 2 is one of the most cringe-inducing scenes I've seen in a while. I can watch people being dismembered every which way without flinching, but I'm a total wuss when it comes to medical stuff. I'm actually surprised I liked these movies since I'm not much of a horror fan.

    good soundtracks

    by the milf lover

    One of my all-time favorites is the Judgment Night soundtrack, one of the first albums to merge the rap and metal genres, and one of the last to do it well haha. Spawn was another great genre-mixer. Two others I really like are the soundtracks to the japanese movie Alive (barely remember anything about the movie tho); and to Dobermann, an ultra-violent french movie, starring Vincent Cassel (from Le Pacte Des Loups/Brotherhood of the Wolf), Monica Bellucci as a crazy mute, and the great Tcheky Karyo as a hyper brutal bastard police inspector trying to get their bank-robbing gang. Anyone here seen this movie? It totally kicks a lot of ass! No idea if it ever got an english release, subtitle or dubbed.

  • Aug. 13, 2008, 2:13 a.m. CST

    Judgement Night

    by Series7

    Was a awesome movie, and soundtrack. Anther good movie that came out around that time Trespass. But dude MILF, Saw 4 was fucking terrible. Like it didn't make any sense and that deaths weren't good at all. Blade 1 and 2 had cool soundtracks, 3 not so much. They were like rap and techno.

  • Aug. 13, 2008, 2:25 a.m. CST

    Finally finished Tears of the Black Tiger?

    by kungfuhustler84

    Has anybody on here seen that movie yet? If I had a DVD burner I would pull a HOD and send it to all of you guys. Unfortunately I don't, but I hope most of you can catch it some time. Cinematic bliss in its purest form. Just imagine a campy western from the 50s or 60s in Technicolor with all the super goody two shoes heroes and the bad to the bone bad guys. Now syntehsize that with a healthy dosage of super violence, and you get one of the most original, creative, entertaining movies I have seen in quite some time. Seriously guys, it would be a crime to not check this movie out! I think Magnolia has released it on DVD here in America. That's the same company who did that pretty swell release of The Host last year or something.

    Watched Citizen Kane last night..

    by Jonah Echo

    I've seen it 3 or 4 times, but somehow neither my wife or my sister, who was over for dinner, had seen the movie. So we immediately remedied that. It's easy to forget how great that movie is when you haven't seen it in a while, but every single shot seems like some sort of masterpiece, and save for the balding of Kane, the aging of the actors is quite convincing. And there is just the fact it's a superb movie. It is one of those movies that probably calls for a regular viewing, because it's easy to consider it overrated. My wife and sis were instantly captivated by it. Of course, right after we finished watching Joseph Cotten in Kane, I put in the Zebraman dvd and played the Latitude Zero trailer that showed Cotten mixing it up with Cesar Romero and giant robot flying lions.

He's without a doubt the best swimmer on the planet and probably the best we'll see in our lifetime, but swimming is one of the few, if not the only, category where there's a bajillion events.

    Thats great news. I just pray that they show the B-roll footage of The Berg shooting a real, live prairie dog.....and then opting for ILM replacement when he realized prairie dogs just aren't expressive enough for the emotion he was going for in that scene. I hope he talks about it on the DVD commentary and says, "Most films would have an insert shot to the prairie dog once. But since George and I are all about upping the ante, we decided to cut back to him not once, twice, or even three times......oh yeah baby, we got prairie dogs in four shots!! Because after a nuclear bomb goes off and our hero rolls out of a Frigidaire, the next thing you want to see is a prairie dog reaction shot to enhance the verisimilitude of the moment, right?"

No drugs, no aerodynamic George Jetson space age gear, no endorsement deals on the line, no protesters getting their teeth knocked out (that was the job of the puck), none of that B.S.<p>If I sound jaded, well, it's because I am. I hope the U.S. brings home more medals than anyone but damn if I see 1/100th of the magic I did as a 9 year old boy watching Team USA in Lake Placid.

    You know, the hot one with the big cans and rockin' turd cutter?<p> I just remembered she is 20 years old so it's fair to make sure everyone knows how hot she is.<p> Also it showed slow motion shots of her running to the vault. Good times.<p> But yeah, the team event is over so no more shots of Top Heavy.

    HOD

    by toadkillerdog

    Is is all about perspective and overlooking marketing. Look, I am old enough to remember watching the 72 olympics - you know, what the movie Munich was based on? And I recall as early as '76 how critics were decrying the mass marketing of the olympics. Hell, they may have been saying that at the 72 games or even earlier, but it did not register with my young mind at the time. The point is, whenever big businnes gets involved in the marketing of anything, you get the glitz. But ignoring that, it is the performances on the field, water, wherever, that matter. Do not think less of the athletes because of the hype they have little control over. And as for performance enhancers - they are nothing new. I remember the 76 games and the east Germans being accused of taking entire pharmacies - which they did. You have to filter out thse things though.

    Olyimpics

    by Series7

    I really couldn't give a shit about these sports anymore then I already don't about all other sports. I don't think its really that big of a deal if you break a world record and first off it was your own damn record, secondly who gives a shit if the amazing record you break is only by less then a second? <P> Also so much more of todays altheletes prowess is due to technology and not ability. Thats why I love Rugby, because the only thing you can really change is the jerseys, cleats, ball and field. I guess you can add some pads, but for the most part is all comes down to teamwork and physical ability. Like football the way the ball is made plays a much more important role, and new pads and helmets and gloves add so much more to the game. Like for sports to me its like trying to compare a computer made this year to a computer that ran off of punch cards. And then talk about their similarites and differences.

    Olympics and Menace....

    by just pillow talk

    First, I wouldn't say I 'hate' the idea of the Olympics, but like Hawaiian said, there should be no muthafucking pro athletes in the muthafucking games. I don't give a shit what other countries do. The U.S. shouldn't be sending pros over. That's not what the games should be about. Fucking ridiculous. I hope our b-ball team gets shelled. Fucking NBA blows.<p>You are right that some movies do play better with commercials Danny, but that's more to do with me flipping the channel away from the really bad parts of Menace. <p>Jar Jar is dreadful of course, but I really think Hayden produced far more cringe-inducing moments. I mean, Jar Jar is really a peripheral character, but Hayden...Hayden is Darth. Not supposed to be a whiny little bitch who would get fucked in the ass by younglings.

  • Aug. 13, 2008, 9:52 a.m. CST

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    I understand basketball isn't what it once was and I hate myself for giving the slightest crap about it since those divas are all overpaid. So I'm a hypocrite and admit it every time I'm challenged.<p>I stopped watching the Olympics 20 years ago after the Ben Johnson debacle. I don't know how many of you kids remember that, but he was the pride of Canada. I'm not joking when I say this but the whole country came to a standstill for the 10 seconds he raced. When he won the collective scream should have been heard around the world. And then the doping issue emerged, he was stripped of his medal and we realized what a douchenozzle Johnson turned out to be.<p>Four years later when the Harding/Kerrigan spectacle happened, it reinforced my belief that I had made the right decision by boycotting the Olympics indefinitely.

But let me give you my 2 pet peeves with this one: <P>Biased judging- I know you get "home" judges, but this time they're taking the fucking piss. I was watching the Gymnastics the other day and any chinese gymnast could have come on, dropped his keks and pulled his pud in time to Nickleback and would still have scored 2 points more than anyone else. <P>2)Stupid elitist shite sports that we're embarrasingly quite good at. How the fuck is Sailing an Olympic sport and there are 9million fucking categories, and 3 Day Eventing? what the fuck? Stupid tedious bullshit.

    because I get crippling insomnia and there stops being anything watchable at about 3AM, I've seen quite a lot of some real shite like Synchronised Diving. There was one, though, that sticks out. Every nation was in with a shout at Silver, but they all should have had a shot at gold- but the judging was just a complete farce. At one point the BBC commentator started losing it at the Chinese marks. The 2 guys did one dive where they were spinning at totally different speeds and got 9 for synchronisation.

    I really fucking hate the olympics

    by Series7

    Like all of the sudden people give a shit about running and swimming. Like they've been following these altheletes for the past four years. Anyone seen the movie swimming upstream? Its pretty good, its about some Prison Colony national trying to make it to the olympics through swimming. <P> I think the Conan sketch right before he went off air for the Olympics between him and max where they talk about shit no one knows anything about like they are experts and then give each other dumb looks, sums up the olympics quite nicely.

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    Reading that Fincher TB saddened me. There are people out there who think everything he's done is crap. I can see someone not liking some of his stuff but none of it? I even like Panic Room. That baby had enough tension for two movies. And Dwight Yoakam makes a great villain.

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    When Costas says, "So I understand you're gonna watch some swimming...." <p> And Bush responds, "I am if you ever let me off this stage." <p> There is a second of tension before both of them start laughing uncomfortably. <p> Bob Costas is a fucking twat though. I hate that asshole...I'd like to smack him in the face with a handful of fresh placentia.

    by Series7

    Well just got done reading it, thats how busy I am at work. And its going to be interesting to see a movie that takes longer to watch then to read. I guess Beowulf and The Running Man are the same way and they are both classics. I looks really good, but 3 hours didn't serve Law and Order: Zodiac any justice.

    the only thing good about Fight Club is the score....

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    ...by the Dust Brothers. But even that feels generic and dated now. Its just one of those films that thinks its important. Fuck that. Incredibly anti-corporate message being financed by a corporate entity starring Brad fucking Pitt, the most commercial corporate douche-bag in the pot. It was sort of that generations 300, a film that High-School kids everywhere jerked off to and felt smarter when they told people it was their favorite film. But come on its got real clever shit like an opening thats coming out of his brain and down the barrel of a gun and nifty CG tricks like that.....ooooooooh aaahhhh.....

  • Aug. 13, 2008, 11:48 a.m. CST

    Lets go then...

    by Jonah Echo

    who is with me? Conan TB? I bet we could keep that alive for awhile, and as I said earlier, the news is it's being written by the Outlander guys, so it's an opportunity to continue our pimping of it over there. They even have link to the Outlander trailer embedded. Who's going?

    Bush at the Olympics.

    by HoboCode

    What a fuckign idiot. The guy is endlessly embarassing. Cheering at the Olympics like Putty at a Devils game. Making another string of awkward and imbecilic statements in an overly long primetime interview. Patting women's volleyball players on the ass. Jesus, is there anything scarier or more revolting than an already moronic douche of a lame duck President near the end of his second term? Obviously he's got nothing better to fucking do. don't worry about that war being waged on the same continent Mr. Bush. I'm sure Condy's got it covered.

  • Aug. 13, 2008, 11:53 a.m. CST

    That's the source material, DGDB.

    by HoboCode

    Did you read the fucking book? It's actually toned down a lot in the film. The movie has an incredible script that is both intelligent and humorous. Norton is fantastic. Pitt was a perfect Durden. The cinematography is excellent. You can knock the movie becaue you don't like its message but at least be honest about that and not make up faults for it.

  • Aug. 13, 2008, 11:53 a.m. CST

    you and I are in complete agreement on Fight Club. Strangely, aside from Alien 3, it's the only one of his I don't like. I even had a good time with Panic Room.

  • Aug. 13, 2008, 11:54 a.m. CST

    Alien 3?!! JESUS CHRIST!! Not this again!!

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    Any random 10 minutes of Alien 3 has better writing, acting, photography, music, acting, and twice as much emotion as the entire run of Fight Club.

    Best part of Fight Club

    by ChittyChittyGangBang

    Was the slow motion shot of Helena Bonham Carter letting that smoke come out of her mouth.<p> Loved that shot.<p> Also when she said she hasn't been fuck like that since grade school and when she wanted to have his abortion.<p> My mouth dropped open when she said that.

  • Aug. 13, 2008, 11:59 a.m. CST

    there was emotion in Alien 3?

    by just pillow talk

    I do sort of like it, and probably more prone to watch that than Fight Club, but still....<p>I dislike how Biehn is killed...hate the fucking fact that Lance is brought back, and while Charles Dutton is awesome, ain't no way he lasts more than 3 seconds against an Alien. <p>What I do like is the setting though.

  • Aug. 13, 2008, 11:59 a.m. CST

    I didnt say fight club was better than alien 3

    by Jonah Echo

    I just don't care for where it took the series. Fincher's work on both movies is excellent, BUT he should have turned down the source material on both. I'll hold my tongue on Fight Club, as I only saw it once when it was released. Might need to revisit it. It just seemed to pleased with itself when I saw it.

  • Aug. 13, 2008, 11:59 a.m. CST

    I liked Alien Cubed as well.

    by HoboCode

    Panic room is probably my least favorite of his films. But that has more to do with an aversion to Foster than the quality of the film.

    HoboCode -- No I didn't read the book.

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    I can give a fuck about Palahniuk. I doubt the book is as much of a bloated, hypocritical piece of shit as the film is. Its exactly what my lazy fat ass generation needed, another story whining about commercialism, self-image and all that other bullshit that has been written about 5,000 times in the last decade. Wasn't there a line Pitt had where he trashes those who focus on their bodies as masturbation or some shit? Uhhhhh....yeah.....he doesn't care about his body at all, right? Fucking hypocritical gimmick cocksucking plastic studio garbage.
