What was the last movie you watched? - Page 10

post #136 of 456
Spider Man...it was kind of fun but the CGI looked very...CGI-ish...Kristen Dunst was nice...

Star Trek Insurection...it was just like watching a long version of the TV series...nothing special

Star Trek Nemisis...better than Insurection but not by much...Still nothing original...

You know, I was thinking that with the DVD cover art work but I enjoyed the movie. That drain pipe hit with the Mauser is memorable in BTK. And all of the gratuitous T&A was welcomed. Not really a spoiler, but I loved the part where he shoots while driving right through the windshield without making any holes.

Watched Donnie Darko and the Terminator Special Edition this week. I'm going to rent Commando tonight, and see if they also have the Conan The Barbarian Special Edition.

Just watched Finding Nemo. It's amazing to see how computer graphics advance with every Pixar release.

Do you have the newly remastered verion? The picture quality have been improved noticably.

P.S. The chick who got decapitated in the end is hot. I especially liked her psychotic laugh.

I think so, it say Masterworks Edition on the cover. Yeah, Kaeda I think? She's an unusually powerful character for a Kurosawa film. Brought that house down big time.

I liked The Devil's Backbone (El Espinazo del Diablo) but was annoyed by it as well. While the film was beautifully storyboarded and executed, and the cinematography was gorgeous, the tone seemed bathetic and sentimental in ways that Ran's, for example, did not. (For those who are interested: the DVD contains multiple comparisons of storyboarded scenes with the final cinematic versions.) Del Toro has also gone on record as saying he's a die-hard Mario Bava fan, which earns points in my one-man neighborhood.

The film had many virtues, though. And it played out like an adaptation of the supernatural gothic magic realist novel that Marquez never wrote.

I do think Del Toro is a man to watch. And I approve of his having made The Devil's Backbone outside of the Hollywood system, since he seems to shuttle in and out of that pabulum-spewing world.

BUGS

Just now on SciFi...typical "giant insects invade the subway" flick..."Mimic" is much better. The fun surprise part for me was seeing one of my favorite clients from my days as an agent in a really nice supporting role. Romano Orzari is his name, he is a really interesting actor

SPOILER AHEAD>>>>>>













and he actually doesn't get offed by the bugs till 1:30 into the film

The Last Detail (1973). It's been awhile since I last saw this and it's always a great movie to watch. Always reminds me of that Ghost Busters quote: he's a Sailor, he's in New York, we get this guy laid we won't have any trouble.

Double feature last night...

"Mansfield Park" and "Orlando"....I watched them both last night and really enjoyed them, especially Mansfield Park. Both films are so well acted and beautifully photographed...it was a great way to spend several hours.

The art direction, set & costume design of Orlando knocked my socks off. And Tilda Swinton is astounding.

Thanks to jpelg for his suggestion I might like these after my reaction to Lawn Dogs.

Confessions of a Dangerous Mind

Loved it. Super directorial debut by George Clooney. Sam Rockwell is an acting god and one of our national treasures. Drew Barrymore is just perfect in the film as well.



also watched Bulletproof Monk which is fun if you just pop the popcorn and sit back and enjoy the comic book aerial ballet fight sequences.
