What are you watching???
« Reply #50 on: October 24, 2004, 12:48:19 am »
I dunno, there's just something about the style of acting that appeals to me :) In the past few months, I've discovered that I really prefer movies from the '90s, '80s and '70s, to the more recent stuff. The acting, the humour, the action, and (above all!) the music makes for more viewing pleasure, I feel.

I dunno. I'm gonna watch The Lost Boys now :o

The Star Wars DVD box extras.

Thinking about watching ESB again now (which should make it my 30th-something viewing).

Best. Movie. Ever.


Die Hard (just finished) *snif* beauty

star wars best movie? hardly
it's, frankly, a quite mediocre movie, but made great by nostalgia.


Not Star Wars. The Empire Strikes Back.

How can you go wrong with ESB? It practically has it all. Drama, action, romance, comedy. Darth Vader. ;) The coolest plot twist in modern cinema.

Sure, the dialogue isn't the greatest, but it's all in the delivery when it comes to ESB. Just like Don Corleone could have been the biggest fuck-up in movie history if Brando hadn't portrayed him (Brando makes the character what it is, that's why no one has ever managed to own a role like that again) - nobody could look a muppet in the eye when it's just said "Wars do not make one great" in a Kermitty voice, except Mark Hamill. The fact that although it's a popcorn movie at heart, it still has a dark undertone (Han Solo gets turned into a popsicle, Luke loses a hand and learns the horrible truth about Vader, the rebels have their asses handed to them at Hoth etc)

But I'll stop there or I might ramble on even more.

ESB is definitely in the top ten of all time when it comes to cinema. In my book, it's the only movie I can never grow tired of.
Now I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?

Man On Fire.






Very, very, very good film. Direction is original and classy, the acting is top-notch (what do you expect, with actors like Denzel Washington, Chris Walken, and Dakota Fanning? And, would you believe Marc Anthony did a pretty good job with his character? :)), and the music is perfect. It's a very moving film. I feel I have to add something else to my description of "Boondock Saints + Payback + Suicide Kings", but I keep thinking about "Titanic"... :o

Anyway, I really enjoyed this movie, and I recommend it warmly.

You can tell, can't you? :)

Don't know how I missed this thread.

Let's see...in the last few days I've watched:

Buffalo Soldiers
Reservoir Dogs
most of the Simpsons Season 1
Willow

And I've got the Ahh-nold box set with Predator, Total Recall, The Running Man, and Commando to watch in the next few days.  Other than Buffalo Soldiers, I've borrowed the rest from a friend, hence the frenzied watching of movies. ;)

Saw The Incredibles today. Awesome, awesome movie :) :thumbsup:

But, it's Pixar, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised :)

Yeah, watched the Incredibles last Monday and it was indeed a great movie...

Last thing I watched was Hearts in Atlantis, which was pretty sucky compared to the book...

Yeah that's a great episode.  I  loved the bit where Level Headed Leonard ripped Kushtie's chimp's eye out and skull fucked it in front of that class of 10 tear olds at the zoo because it wouldn't  play fizbee with him.

Classic Comedy Moment.

Recent purchases/viewings:

21 Grams (americanized version feat. Benicio Del Toro, Sean Penn, and Naomi Watts)
Lost in Translation (fucking BEAUTIFUL movie...-everyone- should watch this)
Pump Up the Volume (christian slater in one of my two faves by him...other being True Romance)

And I've been watching the first season of Alias...pretty cool, and Jennifer Garner isn't bad to look at, either. ;)  :twisted:
