MIB 3 - 8.4/10

post #11312 of 16077

Gave this one a chance tonight since it had a solid rating on RT and I liked the cast. Ended up being a REALLY interesting movie. I love little films like this that are original and non-formulaic. With these smaller indy films I often find the characters far more interesting than I do in many of the big budget popcorn flicks. That's not a knock on the big ones, just a difference. There is a place for both types of films, and I'm glad about that. The acting was pretty strong and the movie had a lot to say about friendship and preconceived notions. Even though it's a COMPLETELY different film, it reminded me of one of my all-time favorite films, The Station Agent. TSA was a great movie about friendship, and even though this one isn't as good of a film, it had a similar feel to it. I truly enjoyed it and I wish it wouldn't have ended where it did. 

 

Safety Not Guaranteed - 8.0/10

It used to be B-13 because Banlieue 13 was the first one (2004) in French.
It's translated to District-13.
Not to be confused with the Sci-Fi movie District 9 (2009)
Very nice Parkour and Freerunning scenes,belies the actors background in acrobatics.
More believable than Looper as far as the future goes.
 

Yes! Thank-you. I just saw the 2004 movie Banlieue, can't wait to see the (2009) District 13 Ultimatum. Hopefully it will have those great action chase sequences.

Stared at the title of this one for quite a while,finally had a look.
It remains a curiosity as to the lengths some will go in the name of vanity.
Cast of recognizable male stars elucidating on men's grooming habits.
Just not very thorough,leaves you wondering what the average person is up to and how much of this film was fodder from an exclusive world.
Bit of comedy from known characters and serious narcissism from others.
Kind of like being in a locker room sitting on a bench and another dude walks up to you nude and wants to chat,it just gets weird.

Brings to mind Chris Rock doing Good Hair (2009) 6/10

If you want to see something that has never been discussed before try African-American women's hair.
Real eye-opener,with hair care that has its' own economy.
The poor men that have to live this reality out with their wives or girlfriends.
Asian women selling their hair to North America,who knew?
One thing I learned - never,ever touch a Black woman's hair,or cause her to break a nail.

Apartment 143 (Horror) 6

 

Some appalling acting, complete rip off of Paranormal Activity but actually very entertaining!

 

1000

post #11317 of 16077

Watched this and Grave Encounters for a second time last night with friends as they hadn't seen them.

 

This was worse the second time around. Blatant rip off as you said. Decent until the last 20 minutes or so. I'd probably give it a 4 after the second go 'round.

 

Grave Encounters however still holds up after a second watch. That movie was genuinely one of the better horror flicks I've seen in awhile. They did some actually original things I've never seen before in horror movies. The 'neverending maze' style is scary.

 

Grave Encounters - 8/10

While we're on the subject of scary movies, the single scariest film I've seen is this:

Love that film!  It's an 8.5/10 for me. It has some brilliant moments. The Original "The Grudge" is up there as one of the scariest films I've seen. Also "the Changeling" 1980 with George C scott. There's so many but these 2 spring to mind.

Yeah I enjoyed Grave Encounters. Me missus has seen Sinister and says its good.

 

I think I enjoyed Apartment 147 for all the wrong reasons, the scientist guy had me laughing out loud with his acting..

 

Looking forward to Paranormal Activity 4. I really like those films. Turn the lights out, turn up the volume and let your imagination go. The 3rd one was the best yet.

Same here....haven't seen 4 yet but loved the first three. I watched the 2nd one just after I picked up a subwoofer for my apartment...it was just a little guy, but some of those damn sound effects were so realistic that it made the impact all the more intense.

Thank you all for your ratings.

Ruby Sparks (2012) 6.3/10 vs. Safety Not Guaranteed (2012) 6.8/10

I had to take several breaks from Ruby,it plodded along to the climax.
SNG was a notch up,though some conversations were unnecessarily long and dull.
Both films have a fantasy element – Ruby, thought creation and SNG, time travel.
As one gets older,perhaps there is more to be grouchy at.
Patience is quickly diminished watching twenty and thirty something aged people flail around in personal anguish.
Watching both films did not evoke any specific memories or thoughts that grab hold of you.
In short,not thought provoking,overtly funny or sensational.

Maybe just not your type...

Stake Land 1/10. Super bad acting. Very bad genre movie. It don´t even know if it´s a zombie, vampire or cannibal movie it seems.

 

B13-u 7/10. These fighting movies do generally get a bit tedious but there is a really nice flow to it all nice parkour and fighting scenes. Slightly less tiring then the Raid Redemption at least.

 

Pusher 9/10. Teaser ending the only real complaint about it but it means they can do pretty much whatever for the sequel.

Have you seen The Station Agent? That might give you a bit more in the areas you felt SGN was lacking. Totally different movie, but some common themes. Great cast, as well...Patricia Clarkson, Bobby Cannavale, Peter Dinklage...one of my favorite films. 

post #11325 of 16077

As discussed earlier in the thread (couple weeks ago), I rarely will turn off a movie early. I tend to research my choices to a degree before I watch, so typically I'll give the film a healthy amount of time to live up to expectations. Sometimes I just watch something because I like the cast or whatever, and that was the case with this one. After the first 30 mins, I had to stop....this is the DUMBEST piece of CRAP I've seen in a long time. This movie should be ashamed of itself for wasting the time of Robert DeNiro and Forrest Whittaker....hell, those guys should be ashamed of themselves for getting anywhere NEAR this steamer!
