Ink-

this movie was extremely creative! at times it reminded me of several different movies, but somehow was very original! this is probably the greatest depiction of spiritual warfare that i have ever seen and would highly recommend this movie to anyone interested in a unique and visually epic tale of the forces that aren't seen, but are just as real! this movie REALLY pleased me and the score soundtrack, especially for anyone that loves synth, is fantastic!

9/10



Altered-

pretty average alien abduction-type movie. wasn't nearly as cheesy as many that i've seen, but nothing spectacular either

5/10

Those four pretty much above anything else at the minute. Still trying to catch up on films, a load of gaps in my knowledge at the minute.

Just watched "A.I. - Artificial Intelligence" for the second time. Can't say I like it that much.

A.I. is bore-ing. I watched The Silence of the Lambs recently...*shudders*

I'm thinking of posting every film I watch from now on in this topic; it'll be quite many movies

 

yesterday I watched:

 

Wake of the Red Witch (1948)
The Sea Chase (1955)
Laura (1944) (2nd time I watch it, interesting film noir really)
Young Guns 2 (1990) (slightly worse than the original)

If everyone wondering why I watch unknown movies like "Wake of the Red Witch" and "The Sea Chase" it is because I'm going through every John Wayne film I can find (currently I've watched 58 films of his). I'm kind of a fan of him, though many of hís films are mediocre, they're still interesting to watch imo.

I'm not wondering why you watch unknown movies. It's probably because you've seen so many known movies already!

Flying Tigers (1942) - Another John Wayne picture
Pan's Labyrinth (2006) - 2nd time I watch it, probably my favourite spanish film; simpy dazzling
It's a Wonderful Life (1946) 2nd time I watch it. The ending maked me cry the first time I watched it, and yes, so it did this time too (my sister also cried watching this). Flawless performances! The movie is a bit too long, though, otherwise this is a perfect family film.

I haven't watched "The Notebook". I would have watched it if it was on the imdb top 250., but it never maked it there. However, I'm downloading it right now because you mentioned it. (it'll probably take some time before I watch it since I have many films on my "to-watch and re-watch" list)

And about "It's a Wonderful Life" I did not cry because it was a sad film, rather the opposite. Some people may find it a bit too sentimental though.

 

Saddest film ever imo: "The Elephant Man" (1980) Everyone should watch this film imo, it's as good as a film can get. I couldn't sleep properly for weeks after watching it the first time (that was back in 2005) it maked such an huge impact on me, the most depressive film you can watch (and more horrifying than all horror films imo) David Lynch is a genious; easily his best film and the best film of the 80s.

Absolutely amazing movie!  Period!

Most anticipated movie in the next 3-4 years... The Hobbit!  

Sob-fest award - Return Of The King (also the third part of the greatest movie ever, imo!)

I'm glad you are a Lynch fan Axel. I have yet to watch the Elephant Man, i think i am waiting for the right moment to be so emotional drained. Mulholland Drive is my favorite of his, but Eraserhead and Blue Velvet were also outstanding. Mulholland Drive is pretty much exactly what i see as a perfect mystery film, and combined with his dreamlike sequences and characters, it takes me to such a unique place.

Anyway, i watched Fargo last night which was excellent.

Wall-E (2008)

*Spoilers*

I found the dynamics of the two main characters, Wall-E and EVE to be very interesting.  On one hand, you have this near perfectly created robot, EVE (pronounced Eva, which is one of the hottest girls' names,)  who well, is perfect, has clear set goals, beautifully designed and all that.  On the other hand, you have Wall-E who is a clumsy dude with an impossible task set before him who doesn't really do anything significant with his life, yet for whatever reason EVE is clearly attracted to him.  Why is this?  The only thing I can come up with is that Wall-E was always true to himself, always believed in what he did and didn't try to be someone he was not.  This is certainly a nice thought

There was one particular scene in the movie which really affected me.  This was the scene where a shuttle is heading back to Earth and Wall-E is on it.  EVE flies through space, the shuttle self destructs and they end up meeting in space while Wall-E saves the plant.  Then EVE kisses Wall-E, to which he is completely flabbergasted and they dance through space.  Counterimposed with the captain asking his super computer to define "dance," it almost brings a question into what is human and what is not (which is a big theme throughout the movie, but I digress.)  This scene was just so filled with love, and showed how great love is (I mean there are these robots who are in love... it's just amazing.)

When I thought about this scene (while megavideo quit out at 72 minutes  :P) I thought about how special it was.  But then something hit me.  I realized it was only special because I made it special from my beliefs and emotions.  I also realized that watching this scene, it could always be special, even though I had seen it already before.  For example, if I was watching this movie with a loving girl, this scene could also be incredibly special and meaningful.

This relates directly to kissing girls.  I guess I never thought about it this way (even though everyone has told me already, it just never "connected" with me) that your first kiss is not always the most special one, but any kiss can be special, if you make it so.  Using this scene as a metaphor for a kiss, I could see clearly that things are what you make them (which I always knew, just never related it to girls, for whatever reason I always saw the aspect of girls and love as completely different from the rest of life.)

This realization obviously made me want to experience special moments like this with a beautiful girl whom I could share love with.  A girl who I can share LIFE with.  A girl who I can sit back with and watch things like movies, sports, major world events, look at our places in this world and then play our roles in this generation in relation to where and who we are in the world.  This is what I really want.  A chick I can see Wall-E with and share that emotion I experienced during that scene... that is the kind of thing I want to feel.  Not only watch the movie, but know that we too can be Wall-E and EVE and live out remarkable stories that are all in the context of this wonderful life we are blessed to have.

Now, I've never experienced these kinds of things before, so maybe I don't want a girl who is like this, I will have to find out, but at the very least I have an idea of a kind of girl I want to TRY.  Now I just need to go out and find a girl like this

I just saw Slumdog Millionaire

i liked it, but i didn't think it was as good as most critics were saying. my main problem was some of the camerwork (lots of diagonal shots, slow-mo with juttery framerate and an awful still shot at the start and end of the movie). but the movie itself was awesome. 4/5

Films I've watched this week:-

 

Road to Perdition (2002)
IMDB rate: 7.7/10, My rate: 7/10

 

Being John Malkovich (1999)
IMDB rate: 7.9/10, My rate: 7/10

 

Mystic River (2003)
IMDB rate: 8.0/10 #238th, My rate: 7/10
Axel recommended this one.

 

Sleepy Hollow (1999)
IMDB rate: 7.5/10, My rate: 5/10
Really annoying main character in this.

 

Brokeback Mountain (2005)
IMDB rate: 7.8/10, My rate: 6/10
Couldn't understand a word Heath Ledger's character was saying, otherwise I might have liked this better.

 

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
IMDB rate: 8.4/10 #60th, My rate: 4/10
I can't stand Jim Carrey and only watched this because it was on television last night and I'm trying to watch as many of the IMDB Top 250 as I can. I got bored about halfway through and watched the following film on another channel instead.

 

Beautiful Creatures (2000)
IMDB rate: 5.8/10, My rate: 8/10

eternal sunshine of the spotless mind is rediculously over-rated, but Brokeback Mountain was pretty epic. Much better than 6/10 imo

Saw "Milk" last night. Really hit home how the more things change, the more they stay the same. It was "Prop. 6" in the movie, but the same thing is being fought today as Prop. 8.

Dead Man Walking (1995) 2nd time I watch it
The Reader (2008) This film will certainly not win an Academy Award for best picture or director; however, it wasn't that bad either, I give it 7/10.
Triumph of the Will (1935)
Twelve Monkeys (1995) 2nd time I watch it
