Thread: Wot films are you watching?
20-07-2012, 09:17 PM #581
The funny thing about Hans Zimmer and me, is I didn't even generally noticed his OSTs (you know, like it's not even there) until I watched Inception. The slow down/mix with Edith Piaf is pretty clever, and the inclusion of guitar work (which I later discovered was by The Smiths' guitarist) made it stand out for me.

I'm so glad they went with that depiction of Bane, actually true to character.
The film was great.

Pitch Black: They really should've known better than to use all those filters. Alternatively: Pretty good for a movie shot by some guys who thought all those filters were a good idea.

Oh, for fuck's sake.

Unfortunately I listened to a couple of Internet reviewers before going to see Dark Knight Rises. No huge spoilers, but they told me they found it underwhelming for a third and final film. I'm here to say that was bullshit. Rises was huge, it was epic, it's quality was on par with the previous two Batman films. Yes it has holes and the combat was a bit hard to follow (exactly the other two Batman films), but overall it's a great movie and such a satisfying conclusion.

I had two problems with Rises, one being audible dialogue (namely, sometimes it wasn't) and the length. It was well paced and I never looked at my watch to see, but I felt it didn't need to be 2hr45m. That being said, the final few scenes were paced amazingly. It was a thoroughly excellent film. What a stunning trilogy.
There were a few cheers, laughs and other cinema-expected noises, but the best laugh came from a sequence near the end where [spoiler]after the bomb-truck was disabled, having fallen off the damn road, there's a cut to Gordon who somehow appears unharmed![/spoiler] Talk about a man of steel! The best cheer, however? Every time the bat-pod was used. Every. That thing is ridiculously cool.

Taken gets better every time I watch it.

I thought Taken was pretty stupid. Here's a guy who's just had a meetup with his old commando friends, but he goes after his daughter's kidnappers solo. Liam Neeson is very good, but not every hero should be Jason Bourne. Wanted, despite also being flimsy, is somehow very entertaining to rewatch. I don't think I could sit through Taken twice.
The Man From Nowhere, on the other hand, I really enjoyed. It's Taken, but slower and more thoughtful (and S. Korean, with subtitles).

Summer Days with Coo.
Besides being really coo-te, is one of the most graceful animation films I've seen, and an interesting take on the topic of isolation.

I have a burning urge to watch Tron again. That's a movie I loved as a kid and becomes more meaningful and enjoyable with every subsequent viewing over the years.

I can barely resist the temptation to post that Wanted keyboard gif.

I watched The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Safe House the other day and thoroughly enjoyed both of them

I also watched The Dark Knight Rises... for the first bit it was incredibly slow and you were kind of knowing it was spinning its wheels telling you plot lots and lots of plot! but once it got going it didn't stop gripping me to be honest. Bane is absolutly fantastic and has the most lovely voice I have ever heard in a villain I could literally have him tell me bed time stories he is that great and i was like "I can understand why people would follow this guy!" The last 45 mins or so was absolutely breathtaking, only really Inception compares with how much I was on the edge of my seat.
I do have to say i don't know if Christopher Nolan is a republican but it was kind of a bit bashing the ideas of the left wing....if you kind of agree with occupy wall street you might not like this movie. All in all i think its great and any other reservations i had about it like the pacing and the way some things were set up and had a bit of a disappointing ending(the whole "Rise" of the movie really) i have actually thought more and actually it does make more sense the way they went. Also one twist i didn't get another twist i got halfway through the movie.
Anyway I do recommend it!

Nolan is on the record as saying DKR has nothing at all to do with any of the occupy anything movements.
I thought Bane was great but the plot is full of deus-ex machina, the terrorists' plan is very poor, and the silly bomb was weak. I had the same issue with it as with TDK's ending, in that framing Batman to save Dent's image didn't make much sense. Everyone seemed to know Batman's real identity too. The twist sure got me though.
DKR wasn't great, but I was gripped and entertained. It's a decent wrap-up and of course still leaves room for sequels. Michael Cain and Tom Hardy were super as usual.
