Thread: Movies (& TV) - discussion, and what did you watch today?

  1. #1

    Movies (& TV) - discussion, and what did you watch today?

    PLEAD DO NOT MENTION DOWNLOADING MOVIES. I'm well aware that a lot of people on the Internet illegally acquire copyrighted material all the time, and that it's largely socially acceptable. But let's not talk about it publicly here. Just mention the movie you saw and talk about it.. no need to discuss how you got the movie.



    I watch movies all the time.. and I know a lot of other people do as well. I like to toss in a quick line or two of what I think about the movies I see, or at least mention what I saw. This thread is for that sort of discussion.

    What movie have you seen today? What'd you think? Do you agree with others?

    tonight I watched Twilight Eclipse. It's roughly 2 hours long.. the first 1.5 hours or so is mostly a continuation of the love-story-that-makes-little-sense and teenage angst with very little plot development most of the time. The last half hour has some action and better plot advancement.

    I've watched all of these so far.. I still don't understand why these two kids love each other so much. They've been okay movies though, imo.

    will probably watch Salt next..

    I watched The Men Who Stare at Goats last night, was slightly disappointing. It just wasn't as entertaining as I was expecting, they used all the really good clips from the movie in the trailers.

    Just saw The Green Zone with Matt Damon. It was ok... With the actors and subject matter, it could/should have been really good.

    Selena and I were both totally underwhelmed with this movie as well. It REALLY had an opportunity to be a great movie but came up totally short.

    No movies for me lately but I started watching X-Files again beginning with season 1. Streaming with Netflix kicks ass.

    Just watched Undead Or Alive. A western zombie comedy with Chris Kattan. Yeah. Could have been better, but zombie titties might be FTW?

    I completely agree. It wasn't bad... just wasn't that entertaining. I lost most of my interest not too far into the movie.

    just watched Salt. The whole movie I was wondering why it didn't do very well in theatres.. now I know. The ending sucked!

    It's not a bad thriller really. The government bits are pretty unrealistic, the first 15 minutes are pretty boring, and the plot and character twists aren't too difficult to figure out. But, it's really pretty good. The ending though.. wtf? The climax just ended.. things appear to be maybe 20 minutes from an ending, and then it just ends. It's a 1.5 hour movie that should be 1:45 or even closer to 2 hours. I don't get it...

    Bourne Identity is how you end a movie like this but leave room for a sequel. 'Salt' is the wrong way to end this sort of movie.

    Just watched Saints and Soldiers, Can't believe it was made for under $1 million, great movie.

    just watched "My Last 5 Girlfriends".. a British 'comedy'. It wasn't very funny, but wasn't bad either. I enjoyed its unconventional way of telling the story if anything...

    In theaters i have recently watched Inception and Scot Pilgrim. Both were great for what they were.
    Right now, I am watching season 1 of Dexter.

    I hadn't heard of Scott Pilgrim at all until I started seeing mentions of it on twitter... still no idea what it is though

    presuming you watched those recently... ?

    haven't heard of the first... but I wasn't very impressed with Alice in Wonderland. It wasn't bad.. but wasn't very good either, imo.

    Yup. finally got around to watching them.

    Watched Crazy On The Outside earlier, and watching Lesbian Vampire Killers right now. Kind of a Shaun Of The Dead but with vampires. Pretty good so far. I'm convinced that every single female cast member is some kind of model, they are all drop dead gorgeous.

    just want to reiterate that discussing illegal activities is disallowed on this forum.. that includes downloading movies. You can talk about a movie all you want.. just don't mention obtaining it illegally

    soooo...
    this movie was weird. It was completely awesome in some ways, if you're at all a nerd/geek. But I couldn't help but think about how crazy the actors must have thought they were while making this movie, because so much of it was just... crazy. The story didn't really flow very well since it was always broken up with weird action sequences and odd characters. But I still enjoyed it.

    oh.. and this girl is honestly very hot, though she wasn't meant to look good in the movie I don't think..
