Thread: Wot films are you watching?
14-02-2013, 05:27 PM #1201
Just got out of watching Wreck-It Ralph.
This is the most cynical example of outdated product placement since Toy Story! Such evil brainwashing on our little kids!
I'll be honest, I felt uncomfortable watching this. I thought I'd get a nice nostalgia trip from the trailer but all I saw was a 3rd grader's version of an adventure epic: some lonely big guy goes on an adventure to win a shiny medal, but finds friends instead. Yeah!
The humor is aimed at 3-6 year olds, there's absolutely nothing in it for a grown up - unless you are a professional animator or something.
I liked the credits though, they got the pixel art and low-res 3D CGI just right. Huge nostalgia overload there.Steam profile

Anyone have any recommendations for something decent on Netflix streaming? I just re-upped for the free month. So far I've watched The Grey, which was sort of a dud, and MI: Ghost Protocol, which was exactly what I thought it would be."What were we talking about? Pegasuses, pegasii, that's horses with wings. This motherf*cker got a sword that talks to him. Motherf*cker live in places that don't exist, it comes with a map. My God."

Netflix has a ton of excellent films. Is there any particular genre that interests you?

I'll watch just about anything. Give me anything on there you liked."What were we talking about? Pegasuses, pegasii, that's horses with wings. This motherf*cker got a sword that talks to him. Motherf*cker live in places that don't exist, it comes with a map. My God."

Well, just taking a cursory look there's:
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
The Grapes of Wrath
Jesus Christ Superstar
Man of La Mancha
Monty Python's the Meaning of Life
The Naked Gun
Nightmare before Christmase
Once Upon a Time in the West
Terminator 2: Judgement Day
All films I can heartily recommend.

I forgot to mention that I already watched True Grit the other day. It was good. Not to sound like a hipster, but I liked the original better. Jeff Bridges was great though. Anyhow, thanks for the recommendations.

Wreck It Ralph - I quite liked it I do have to agree the humour isn't really all that much and I think it kind of is more aimed at younger kids then the older or adult ones but there are a few laughs in it. I think its more of a character film and for that it does it pretty well you do care about the characters and what happens to them, and there are a few emotional moments in there that put a tear in your eyes. The video game references are cool I wish there was maybe a little but more of that humour but oh well.

I just watched Primer again. I'm now going to watch it once more with Sam Hughes' commentary, as he's the only person whose explanation of the film has come close to making sense.
Usually I scoff at people who say a film was difficult to follow - Inception? Pah. Cloud Atlas? Meh. Primer, on the other hand...

very interesting comments on the notion of ambiguity in film. While Primer is obviously not a straight horror film, there are some very dark themes and I think that a lot of what he says translates well.
I hear Upstream Color is absolutely astounding, by the way. I haven't been as excited for an upcoming film... Well, since The Master, but these are the greatest two American directors still living as far as I'm concerned.

Just finished watching Drive. Wow, not what I expected at all. I felt that this movie, while it hits a lot of things right in a lot of places, it seems it could do a lot more with action. I know this is more like a crime drama than a badass action flick but if they could just focus a little more on that aspect, maybe it could've been better. OTOH, the writing was great. Interesting enough to see what happens after each scene and it's hard not to symphathise the characters, even the minor roles. Perlman was great as always. And God, I wish I have the soundtrack from this movie.
I like it. It's just a bit underwhelming, is all. Sorta like my feelings after watching Dredd

Django Unchained - I think this is the most normal film Quinten Tarintino has made, not much filminess except for the usual Spagetti Western signifiers here and there which are just there. I think its a lot better paced then Inglorious Basterds I wasn't left bored halfway through wanting something to happen. Though lots of scenes could have been trimmed down a lot since it was like "yes I get the point now hurry up to the thing I know is going to happen. The dialogue or monologuing as I think it is is very good and definitely adds to people's character but I wish there was a bit more entertaining interplay like in Pulp Fiction, Waltz steals the show but there definitely is a missed opportunity of having them have entertaining banter since what little is there is very good. Also I really think that he definitly put slavery into a sickening light since the violence on the slaves was very brutal and was very upsetting. also Samuel L Jackson is great and a little bit different in this movie, and the Cane drop is probably one of the most Bad Ass things I saw in the movie.
I didn't have a problem with The Australian accent Quinten was doing though I can understand why people would and be a bit like What is he doing.
