When I was a kid, they showed these ads for The Royal Tenenbaums that only showed slapstick.
Took me over a decade to watching the movie because it.
Saw Warm Bodies. It was much better than I thought it would be (thought it'd be shit). Decent flick. Watched Snow White and the Huntsman after that. A somewhat decent flick brought down by that buck toothed, heroin addict Kristen Stewart. God I can't stand her. Her and god damn Megan Fox. Except Fox is at last slutty eye candy. Stewart looks like a goth girl I knew in Chico and hated.
Was in a mood for a Agatha Christie style murder mystery film last night so gave Gosford Park a go. Two hours in and no murder had happened, it was primarily a slow build up but not to a murder. Just to gossiping and people bitching. It seems to rate quite well star wise but it was a fail for me.
It's a film about the class system, but they really hyped up the murder mystery to get bums on seats. It's just an excuse to get all the different characters to interact in ways they wouldn't usually do.
I want to see Snowpiercer because this woman has a shoe on her head
Always a good reason.
Sat down for some movies over the course of the weekend. It's a Wonderful Life, The Intouchables, and The Adventures of buckaroo Banzai.
The first two are great. The third one... Man, I thought Back to the Future was the ultimate '80s movie. I was wrong. Dead wrong.
Wanted was on tv last night, was a good ride, ridiculous though but in an entertaining way.
Tried watching Silent Hill: Revelation 3D on Netflix last night and... holy shit, that was bad. Holy fucking shit. The first movie was no great shakes either but it least it looked like it was made by a person who understands what movies are. Honestly, I was half convinced that it was some kind of troll or I accidentally queued up one of those cheap, Asylum knock-offs like Transmorphers or something.
And then I fell asleep half-way through.
You didn't even get anywhere near the worst parts of that film, then. You lucked out. SH:R has to be the result of some bogus shaman attempting to divine a script out of vomit on A4 paper.
Got round to watching Ghost in the Shell. Loved the detail in the drawing and animation. The pacing for the story is weird though. I never felt like I encountered any mid point. The point where they finally discover the antagonist is when all shit happens which eventually leads to the end.
saw this is the end and man of steel over the weekend, really liked this is the end, i thought it was hilarious
man of steel i thought was ok, really short on plot i thought, seemed like they just wanted to cg destroy everything, i did like the ending
The action scenes were largely retarded.
I saw Man of Steel yesterday and I enjoyed it, though it felt weird, strangely paced I dunno.
I surprisingly enjoyed Crowe's Jor-El throughout.
Had to research but it seems Ursa was made up for the older Superman films and Foara was always in the comics. I thought they just invented a name, even though she was Ursa but it's the other way about ina way.
Some silly complaints, that aren't complaints just nit-picking:
