    The Movie Thread

    Perhaps we can make this a sticky and ppl will start posting their thoughts on movies they recently saw or movies they want to see - I think if it is a sticky thread, ppl will actively post....and I myself like to read reviews, etc. on movies.

    I just went to see Rocknrolla the other day. It was surprisingly pretty good. (I expected it to be avg at best)

    It's typical Guy Richie but a bit different in that it's bigger fish as the criminals instead of nickel and time shit. Johnny Quid, both the character and the performance, were fucking awesome. It was pretty funny as well.

    It was good on the big screen, but I'm sure it will be good on DVD as well.

    Good fun for males in the mental age bracket of 14-22, which is most males.
    Bonger would have fun with this comment

    I like the previews for Role Models. Brings back a few memories....haha, but I am usually let down in these types of movies when they try to incorporate an actual moral, meaning or lesson.

    I have herad people say that they laughed pretty much through this entire movie.

    Also anything with Sean William Scott is going to be funny (Role Models)

    It's rated R, which should be encouraging.

    Really? Maybe I'll check it out then...I thought it was a kiddy comedy from the preview lol. Thats the thing with R rated movies...trailers usually dont do them justice

    I also saw Rocknrolla today, I was a bit disapointed but I think thats my own fault. I'm just such a huge fan of Snatch and Lock, Stock that I eas expecting to much. Johnny Quid was pretty awesome though, wish there was more of him. That scene with him playing the pianno was amazing.

    I also can't wait to see Zack and Miri make a porno...Ive yet to be disapointed by a movie with Seth Rogen


    On another note I was just looking around in some random dvd/cd store and I found this sick 10th aniversarry edition of the big lebowsky for only 20$! This has instantly become my favorite dvd of my collection

    I have a question for you guys. Where do you go on the internet to watch trailers?
    I used to go for Yahoo! but their quality isn't that good. And when I went into their HD section the trailers lagged and it was never smooth. I tried Apple, but all their stuff is with Quicktime and it's on such a little part of the screen that it's not even worth it. Their HD has the same problem as Yahoo!'s. So...

    Cool.

    But 1) there is no 'trailer section' per se.
    and 2) the quality of them is better on other sites.

    I always recommend checking out the Red Band trailers for a movie. Uncensored gives a little more insight.

    Saw Zach and Miri last night. Pretty damn good. Definitely not something you want to go see with your mom or little sister, though, lol.

    I read that it was initially given an NC-17 rating, but somehow they got it cut back to R, without having to cut any scenes...

    Good movie, one of the better ones of the year actually. Lately DiCaprio doesn't disappoint.

    Hated it

    And to the Zach and Miri comment. Kevin Smith has a surprising level of pull with the MPAA. Clerks 2 was originally NC-17 also because of the donkey scene, but he got to toss that in in the long term.

    If you meet Kevin Smith in person, he's an amazing speaker, so he can be very convincing.

    I ended up going to see Zack & Miri - it was alright. There weren't many ppl and I was the one in the theatre who seemed to enjoy it the most (and like I said, it was just alright)...it was actually weird because I started feeling like a weirdo being the only one who laughed at the dirty jokes.

    Save your money and rent it...

    PS: Kevin Smith's stuff never makes me laugh much tbh...Jay was funny though. He's really thin though, is he a crackhead now or something?

    Charlie Wilson's War - just saw this last night (thanks NetFlix). Pretty decent way to waste 90 minutes. Fairly light hearted look at the American covert ops in Afghanistan during the 1980's.

    Rating: 3 1/2 out of 5

    I have Into The Wild next up...
    I'm sorry that you interpreted my incredibly funny joke as horribly offensive.

    I enjoyed it as well. It was a light watch (I'm not too sure what I'm trying to say by this).

    Really, eh. I heard about half of it was funny and then the other half toned it down a bit or rather exhausted all the jokes.

    Good movie...I like Emil Hersch but he was kinda annoying in this movie though...but I think that is more the character who was a narcissist if there ever was one.

    This movie's great. Enjoy.

    Last few weeks I've seen Quantum of Solace, Role Models, and The Day the Earth Stood Still. Quantum of Solace is pretty average, basically the same as Casino Royale but not as fast paced. Role Models had its moments, wasn't a bad movie but was a bit uncomfortable in that it couldn't decide whether to be movie for kids or adults (don't know too many 18A movies with the Disney endings). Day the Earth Stood Still wasn't very good, tried really hard to be epic and failed more often than not (every quote is delivered in an over-the-top dramatic way when they were really saying nothing at all).

    Serious cold streak of movies lately... is Yes Man the next good one to come out or is that going to be a letdown too?

    I dont think I'm going to see it when it comes out, it does look like it could be abit of a letdown.

    Valkyrie looks awesome in every way, except for tom cruise. WHY? WHY? WHY? Bryan singer directing and finally McQuarrie writes another script, but i cant watch tom cruise anymore, i dont see a character, i see tom cruise.

    The spirit.. looks good if not for it most likely being sin city's little, more lame, brother... Its gonna be compared to sin city, obviously, and its gonna fall short. And apparently miller and snyder are working on 300 2? Im not really sure how that works, but eih... let me know when sin city 2 comes out

    Bang on. The two sets of tits you see are solid. That whole teacher scene is solid when she twists her hair back.
