I disagree on Django. It's almost on par with Pulp Fiction, IMO. 9/10 vs 10/10

I initially thought Django Unchained could have possibly been the best Tarantino flick.

But after reminding myself of Pulp Fiction which is a 10/10 Django is a 6-7 in comparison

My biggest gripe about Django is that it really felt like a long movie.

post #12633 of 16079

I'm the opposite...It didn't feel long at all to me. Pulp Fiction always feels longer to me due to the fairly disjointed story. 

 

They're both very good though.

On a slightly related subject...I'm watching Once Upon a Time in Mexico. Forgot what an amazing cast this movie had. 

 

Johnny Depp, Antonio Banderes, Mickey Rourke, Salma Hayek, Eva Mendes, Danny Trejo, Willem Dafoe...Jeez.

Movie was pretty miss-able (6.5/10) , but Ms. Marceau is as tongue_smile.gif as ever (9.5/10).

I dunno. I found its idealistic characters to mostly just be a pain (and its cartoony villains laughable), and the length of the series didn't exactly aid my lack of enthusiasm for spending so much time in their company. I had heard that this live-action adaptation worked fine as a stand-alone, though I'd have to disagree, seeing as how it must work with even less character development than either the manga or anime provided.

7/10. It was alright. Nothing fancy.

I loved it. Needed high res audio though, I heard some audible artefacts.

A Good Day to Die Hard - 7.5/10

 

Great fun but it actually calmed down a bit in the middle and there were a few sappy father son scenes I could've done without.

2001: A Space Odyssey

 

Easily one of the greatest and most influential films of all time; a 10/10; The standard against which all Science-Fiction films are measured.

So I gave this one a chance because of the cast. Have always been a big fan of Andy Samberg on SNL, and even though Rashida Jones has had several prominent roles on both TV and film, most people don't appreciate how intelligent and creative this lady is in addition to her comedic timing. She co-wrote this film and I found myself appreciating her influence. It maintained a pretty light tone throughout, and then when they did delve more into the "issues of the heart" stuff they did it without resorting to cookie cutter predictability. Overall I enjoyed this one. 

 

"Celeste and Jesse Forever" - 7.9/10

I saw this when I was 16 (now 32) and it bored the heck out of me. I think I was too young too appreciate this movie. Finally watched it again and liked it, but it sure is one of the slowest movies i've seen in a long time. The scenes at random went from OK to good, to great. There's a few scenes that didn't seem all that important to the story. I wonder if they have a Blu-Ray disc of this..probably not. Strangely my favorite scenes were when they were stuck in the desert. Not sure why.

It seems i've always liked Raph Fiennes movies. He was also good in "The Reader" (which is depressing as hell). Colin Firth is in here too and you can barely recognize him!

Couldn't stand it. Technically it was quite adept in every aspect, but what a long, miserably depressing story. I've been staying far away from Hugh Grant films ever since.

High praise indeed! It's only flaw was that it was also paced a bit on the slow side (especially in the beginning), but it was totally worth it for its overall timeless brilliance!

Just came back from it. That movie was straight up bad-ass action porn. Some scenes made me want to get up and run around the theater screaming "OOOOOHHHHHHH!!!"

post #12643 of 16079

Agreed. There are definitely some OOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH moments.

The book is even better, imo.

The art direction though. Stunning.

Still need to go see that. I may rewatch the first few in preparation.

I hated the English Patient too, but what did Hugh Grant have to do with it? lol
