"The Last Stand" - 7/10

 

Despite the shabby acting by the Terminator, the lines were funny as hell - especially over a bottle of champagne.  I loved it when the Terminator one upped the fugitive with, "You F***** My Day Off". Corny and entertaining at the same time.  Welcome back Arnold.  A pity you didn't get an Oscar for Governor. :rolleyes:

I spit on your grave 2

 

3/10

 

Didn´t enjoy it very much. Thought the old remake was better.

One of the very few "actors" who can get away with minimal acting chops.  From "Conan The Barbarian" to "Eraser" had a nice run of memorable parts.  More spotty since then, but glad to hear he is back "acting" again.

Most important he was active during the golden era of the action movie. Nowadays hollywood have no idea how to make them. I wonder where all the knowledge went? All todays directors is so ancious they feel they have to cut every  second afraid people will loose interest :)

House (1977): WTF/10 (Alright alright, more like a 5/10)

 

This is another one of those movies that is so bad, that it becomes good. Like Troma's War. It has enough plot to get the ball rolling, ultra-cheese ball scenes and breasts. That statement just about sums it up.

 

Free on Hulu right now.

I really enjoyed this one...it reminded me of a story my grandfather once told me about how the Americans and the German POWs interacted. I don't think this film had much of a budget, but it looked beautiful. 

 

 

"Into the White" - 8.2/10

I think that one of the reasons why action movies are not as big today is that perception of "man-ness" has changed in America. I do notice that macho types are even ridiculed in Hollywood. For example, look at recent cartoons "The Croods" ( patriarchal type of a man is gone) and "Despicable Me-2" ( the character called Macho is evil). 

 

There is an exaggerated article “Despicable Me 2″ and Minions: Clumsy Queer Cinema but he had made good points nevertheless. The main message of this article is that gender roles are more mixed nowadays. Female types are more manly and male types are more feminine. That is the predominant direction America has taken. Personally I'm pretty neutral to this policy BUT its radical wings really disturb me.

 The idea of masculinity admittedly needs work, but it has its virtues, and here it is immoral, lewd–and Latin. When I left the theater, a question mark floated freely above my head, with “WTF” stamped on my forehead, and I felt ashamed for my culture.

Repo Man - 8.5/10

 

I shouldn't enjoy this movie as much as I did. It's rather stupid, makes no sense and is kind of pointless.

There's a lot of somewhat funny parts but it's not like the "LOL" type stuff.

 

Possibly the weirdest movie i've seen. Terry Gilliam movies don't count.

 

No point in getting the Criterion version unless you need the extras. The cheaper one has impressive video quality for being so old!

 

Third time i've seen this one and I finally bought it.

"Into the White" - 8.2/10

 

 

 

I really liked this one and rated it a little higher since I love true stories like this. I found that in the USA it made $704 at the box office!

One other film like this is "War in the Pacific" which has a really awful ending. That's with Toshiro Mifune and Lee Marvin.

 

One movie i'm really looking forward to is "Railway Man" with Colin Firth. Probably won't get a US release. It's about a former WWII POW that later on in life meets the guard who tortured him. I hear stories of things like this all the time.

The POW's story about the actual camp was in "End of Wars" which is really underrated.

$704? lol  Meanwhile people are flocking to see the next Grown Ups movie..(I hack on this movie a lot, but the first one offended my sensibilities so much that the knowledge that they made a sequel makes me sick!). 

 

Thanks for mentioning the other ones...each of those sounds good

 

And I agree, I love films that are based on or inspired by true events

Intense and beautiful in 3D, Ang Lee brings the visuals. An excellent thought provoking film wrapped in symbolism.  I saw Hugo prior to this movie and felt Hugo was the better film.  It's more a matter of preference.  A film that sticks with you after you see it, which is always a good sign for me.  

 

8.3/10

post #14053 of 15956

So you saw it in 3D then, Rumay? TV? Projection? 

 

I have my 3D copy on bluray sitting here waiting for me to watch...looking forward to it!

 

 

Tonight I saw a movie that you guys mentioned a few days ago...It was better than expected, and a pretty amazing story.

 

"Flash of Genius" - 8.5/10
