You know what your getting going in,so on that basis it is a worthwhile action/thriller,with some degree of depth.
Decent effort and worth a look if you like this genre.
 

 

Somehow I started to like him a lot more when he refused to do The Expendables. Smart move on his part!

doh! I bet this time they actually gave him a script beforehand or actually explained what his character would be like.

 

Or they just paid him a TON of money...

 

The good thing about part 2 is that it has a new director..

 

Simon West of "Con Air". With a credit like that, it HAS to be good!!

Maybe he was busy with his JCVD movie. It´s the best Van Damme movie I have seen but it´s not very van Damme. As for an action actor with competition from Sly and Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren  he come across as relatively good ;)

moonrise kingdom - 10/10   best movie i've seen in a while

 

I actually had no intention of seeing it.. didnt know anything about it but didnt really think i would like it... Also didnt realize who the director was.  Actually i saw part of it and thought boy this movie really reminds me of the royal tennenbaums..  now i know why ;-)

 

anyway.. great movie all around.

I liked JCVD a lot. Always been a Van Damme fan, so glad he chose to take part in Expendables Deux

the first 20 minutes of the movie where they track down the guy was just annoying to me.i kept scipping every scene from annoyance of the camera man.the rape scene was waay over the top.10 minutes is just ridiculous. it was vulgar and unnecessarly over the top imo. i was watching the movie with a girlfriend and one of my buddies and no one was fond of what they saw.

yes its basically the most important scene of the movie,but i thought it was overdone for the average viewer especially in a very delicate subject like this where most of us,atleast me can get emotionally affected especially since i have sisters...

i wasnt impressed with the 10-15 minutes the lovers spent naked as well.again overdone imo.

The end was ridiculous and i thought the producer forced his opinion when he wrote"Time Ruins everything".

Overall,unnecessary movie to watch just like that serbian crap.i dont think i will ever watch films of that nature again.

Thanks for the recommend.

Shades of 1996 when the movie 'FARGO' was out with Sheriff Marge Gunderson stealing the show.
Frances McDormond as the tired old housewife/attorney meant the show Moonrise Kingdom would go on to a solid '7.5' for me.
Based in the mid 1960's,I had some thoughts on this movie,just after watching.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I was around as a youngster in the 1960's and it is always interesting to see if a movie trying to capture that era evokes any memories.

Being in the Canadian Cub Scouts myself in 1967,the experience was over romanticized in the movie.
I still have the handbook which was called "The Way To The Stars" and haven't thought about that survival book for some time.
Yes,I also packed a Daisy Air Rifle and loved to navigate the local streams and ponds on self made rafts.
Being outdoors and camping was a huge part of that era.

I was surprised to hear the 12 year boy ask his girlfriend if she was 'depressed'.
In 1964 this word was never used or even acknowledged,buried deep in the closets of many homes.
She says: "I wish I was an orphan.Most of my favorite characters are.I think your lives are more special"
He replies: "you really have no idea what you are talking about"
Those who feel it the most know it best.

The lead tormentor and rescue architect had a good line when he is asked "Why don't you like me?"
"Why should I -nobody else does!" - that response gets his old stab wound reopened when the orphaned boy attacks him,retrieving the binoculars which he claims give his girlfriend "magic powers"
Where the movie fell off the rails for me was the Harry Potter moment during the chase and our lead man is struck by a lightning bolt,evading capture.
Better if all the pursuers had went down from shock on the wet grass instead,while the hero stands above on the rocks.

Electronics were featured to a great extent in this movie.
Running away with a portable record player and your favorite 45 in 1965 is funny.
Enjoyed that Solid State Transistor radio shot,I have one very similar I received as a Christmas gift.
It was a big deal to get your very own first portable radio back then.

A second fantasy moment occurs when the Scout Commander is saved from his burning tent.
The leap over the raging water both ways just before the explosion put the movie out of sync for me.
Social Services veteran of 27 years has a Cruella De Vil appearance,while trying to remand the boy into the custody of Juvenile Refuge.
Her sadistic demeanor is eerily reminiscent of the 1960's and the corporeal punishments that I once experienced.

"Reconstruction of the camp continues increasingly ahead of schedule,which I attribute to a particularly robust esprit Du corps among the Troops"
I like the old version of today's BLOGGING dementia.
Speak into an old portable reel to reel recorder,preserving your thoughts verbally,for your own posterity.
A pleasant ending for all.Nice movie.

Prometheus - 9/10
Alien - 9/10
Aliens - 8/10

Should be doing 3 and 4 soon.

Waking Life - 9/10. 

 

I'd highly recommend this movie to anyone who digs philosophical concepts. The picture is done in a form called rotoscoping, which is animation overlaid on real acting. Gives the movie a sort of dream-like feel.

Have you seen Enter The Void? I absolutely love the direction of that film, pretty cool concept as well.

 

This movie has been sitting on my TV stand for over a month and I still haven't watched it. I don't know why because I'm really interested in it, hah. I think I'll check it out tonight.

"Fargo" 9.5/10

One of my all time faves, superb movie!

post #11100 of 15973

Had a blast with this one....the first fifteen mins were amazingly entertaining. The first half was better than the second half, but the movie as a whole is a fun ride. 

 

Daybreakers: 8.2/10
