    I enjoy this thread... mostly because I like watching movies more than TV shows... that's what I like to load up the DVR with.... so I'm bumping it up with a collection of recently viewed movies from me...


    Conan The Barbarian (with Jason Momoa): To be perfectly honest, I knew this would be a bad movie... but since I have cats named Conan and Sonja... one does have to indulge in the silly once in awhile. So... the main issue with this movie is editing and direction imo. The acting was just fine, the storyline, while not super exciting and new was not bad either. The issue was it felt like they wanted to make some graphically stellar film such as a 300 or Gladiator type, where certain actions are emphasized... but it fell apart with some of the continuity of the storyline. Supporting Actors came and went in small scenes where it was convenient to introduce or send away that person based on a perceived need and while these characters seemed like they were interesting enough, the storyline didn't NEED them or their scenes in some situations, so it felt like the scenes because they were good... were kept instead of discarded for a better film. And then those scenes once finished... we left relatively quickly so we could proceed with the actual plot. To me... that's editing and directing issues.

    Art of War 2: Betrayal I am going to summarize this with one simple thing.... about 15-20 minutes into the film it was paused so that the bf and I could confer and came to the conclusion that the type, volume and prevalence of the soundtrack made us feel like this was about to be one of those bad porno movies. At any moment we were prepared to see nudity.... To be clear... I'm pretty sure there wasn't any, but from intro to reveal it was surprise twists that weren't surprising.

    On the other hand... the more I'm re-watching the X-Files the more I admire the portrayal of Dana Scully.

    Suckerpunch - very good show, if I hadn't read the reviews of it before buying it I would have enjoyed it more. The action scenes were cheesy, but, from what I understand it was developed from a video game. Anyhow, I enjoyed the twist/layers of the story, and the graphics (I watched it on bluray) were great.

    The Return of Chen Zhen - typical martial arts hero movie, nothing special in the drama department but always enjoyable to watch Donnie Yen in action.

    The Bourne Legacy - decent flick, but just not the punch of the three before it, but maybe I'm biased as a Matt Damon fan (in that role)

    The Watchmen - Typical dark comic strip flick, but nothing I would recommend to others. Worth a watch, but I wouldn't pay to see it.

    Friends With Benefits - a chick flick even a guy could suffer through. I actually laughed out loud a couple times.

    Knight and Day - ok, nothing special.

    V for Vendetta - ABSOLUTELY LOVE ADORE LOVE this movie. Its good on so many levels. I recommend it to everyone, lol.

    Equilibrium- wouldn't pay for, but ok to watch if its free. gun-martial arts idea is kinda neat.

    Adjustment Bureau - another ok to watch, but glad I didn't pay to see it at the theatre. Even tho I like Matt Damon, lol.

    The Wedding Date - tepid chick flick. If you are in chick flick mode, its watchable, but don't make your SO watch it.

    The Man From Nowhere - subtitled, good flick. Some unexpected wrinkles to keep you guessing a bit.

    Moon - bit slow to watch, but very interesting issue it highlights.


    I have been remiss in posting in my own thread, lol.

    Trill, I too watched the remake of Conan and agree it was an ok way to kill some time, yet, it bothered me somewhat.
    How could they? Conan was one of the greatest B movies and a remake is just plain stupid. Other remakes, these I refuse to see:
    Red River
    True Grit
    Captains Courageous
    Inherit the Wind
    And now I understand they are remaking Red Dawn? Starring someone semi famouses offspring. Is there nothing new to make? I can think of Dozens of books.
    On the upside, I read somewhere they are making Mutineers Moon (Empire from ashes) series by David Weber. Now that I will pay to see!
    Just venting a tad

    Yes 5th of November = Guy Fawkes day.

    And I saw True Grit in the theater when it was out... was quite enjoyable, you might just like it!

    Original Conan was also a bad movie.. but it revelled in its B-movie status, much like IT people can watch Hackers even though its completely not the way such a thing happens... but its amusing anyway.

    I did pick up a number of Studio Ghibli movies from Costco the other day that I need to watch.... and managed to catch their Tales from Earthsea, though it was late so I don't feel it got the most fair portion of my attention.

    Trill, if you notice my signature, John Wayne's is the 2nd one. I truly don't understand how you can remake academy award winning movies in good conscience (no, not Conan, lol) movies like True Grit, Red River etc should be IMO enshrined and left alone. It's like the late, great Gene Kelly's "Singing in the Rain", it just can't be redone...

    I saw Battleship. I liked it

    The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act
