Movies You've Watched Recently

ajapam wrote:Anyone see the trailer for Mad Max? It looks one of those movies that mixes goofiness with awesomeness to make something you just need to watch even if the script sucks. With this and the game coming soon I'll have to actually watch the originals

I'm a huge fan of The Road Warrior and I desperately want to see Fury Road.
The original trilogy is a lot of fun. The first is rough around the edges (and a bit slow in the middle) but still entertaining. The Road Warrior is perfection on every level. Beyond Thunderdome had a problematic 2nd act and goes in wilder, crazier directions than its predecessors but still worth a watch.

And yeah, it's ballsy as hell to show a film with a nude Scarlet Johanson that doesn't make her look perfect. She has folds and looks...well, real.

Exactly. It's an unglamorous role (and look) for her and that's why I suspect Johansson agreed to the nudity; she knew she wouldn't be exploited. I'm sure people could see screen caps of those scenes out of context and get off on them but in context? It isn't happening.

I haven't seen Catwoman but everything else you listed has some redeeming quality. And with Man of Steel, At least I just didn't like it. Meaning it wasn't a bad movie, just not my taste. (Superman IV is great for the comedic clusterfuck it is) I understand where you're coming from, but I do feel this movie insulted me. Which I can't say for many movies.

Superman IV was insulting then and it still hurts.




Man of Steel rocks, you doodoohead.

Man, Trip was right about "doodoohead".

I'm not insulted by "boogerface".

What just happened?

I thought Man of Steel was bad. I didn't hate it as much as you guys. But I saw it in theaters and haven't really thought twice about it since. But I also hate Russell Crowe. And that movie had way too much Russell Crowe.

I was fine with the Winter Soldier ending since
Spoiler:
The villain of the movie was not Bucky, but Hydra. With him out of their control, he's not a threat to anyone, whether Captain America finds him or not does not matter as much as that he is no longer under Hydra control. And even then I'm okay with Marvel movies having small cliffhangers (emphasis on small). These are comic book movies after all (which is built on a foundation of cliffhangers) and I know it will get resolved. It's not like with ASM2 where the clifhangers exist to milk the franchise and Sony is in a lot of trouble funding new movies.

As for Man of Steel, I just pretend Superman is Goku and Zod is Vegeta and it's the Dragonball Z movie I have always wanted.

I don't remember being bugged by the ending of Winter Soldier...I also don't remember it.

Do you consider it weird then that I kind of liked the apple-store scene? Yeah, it was clearly product placement but I thought it was le-funny. Since Cap'n America is good in those fish out of water scenes.

Yeah, I agree with you on that Apple scene. Seeing Caps adjust to the 21st century is my favorite part of his character. Hell, I would watch a MST3K type movie that's just Caps making commentary on historical documentaries.

The best way to describe Guardians of the Galaxy is if The Avengers was made by and for drunk Star Wars fans. I'd like to think you all know me well enough to know what I think that means quality wise

I agree. Guardians of the Galaxy was amazing. It's probably my favorite Marvel movie. I loved every second of it. Plus the cast is incredible. Each character had so much personality. Chris Pratt was perfect in his role. Bradley Cooper's voice work was great. Groot was hilarious. Zoe Saldana was good... she played a good badass. My biggest surprise was how good big Dave Bautista was. He's a pretty damn good actor. I would have never guessed a character named Drax the Destroyer would have some of the funniest lines in the movie. Just a great movie. Go see it!

I was surprised how Bautista wasn't just funny, but how great a job he did whenever he'd bring up his family. He did a great job of selling that he was pissed off with nothing to live for except revenge. Seriously, give the dude his own Taken.

I am pretty sure Guardians of the Galaxy is my favorite movie this summer. The cast really was perfect, the characters were all so ridiculously likable. I was also surprised at how hilarious Drax was at times. And Groot was so cute. I loved everyone. Such an awesome movie. Everyone needs to see it.

Yeah so...Godzilla had a lot wrong with it. The epitome of the problem for me for me can be boiled down to one scene:

Spoiler:
Godzilla gears up to fight giant evil monster. It's like "IT'S GO TIME BITCHES!" And I'm like "FUCK YEAH!" and it cuts away so we can watch some stupid marines running. FUCK THAT!

Also the main actor looked like me to the point where it was distracting. Seriously, he's joined the list of 3 or 4 doppelgangers who roam the streets and don't ever get confused for me because I'm not famous.

Finally bought my blu-ray copy of The Raid 2 last night and watched it again. Still awesome. Still the best action film of the year.

Speaking of which, it came with a download code for the Ultraviolet version. I never use these things. Does anyone want this code?

I'd probably just end up illegally downloading it anyway, but thanks for the offer!

How have I not seen the Untouchables until now? It has one of those all time great final lines, up there with Clue.

Watched 21 Jump Street and Silver Linings Playbook. Both were better than I would have expected. Pretty soon I'll be watching Mamma Mia or something...

Nah

21 Jump Street is hilarious. 22 Jump Street was equally great. It was just ripping on crappy sequels non stop in a totally hilarious and great way. Silver Linings Playbook is just a solid movie with some great acting. That'll be one I'll always stop and watch if its on TV.

Watched Rocky for the first time in years and you know...not as good as I remember. What it does well, it does very well, but I feel like there have been better human sports stories since then.

spoiler:
Since nothing physical happens (aside from a kiss) and that Brie Larson's character is mostly likely an senior/18 year old and that Hill feelings for her are genuine compassion (since girls didn't give him the time of day when he was younger), I don't think any lines were crossed. Cube warned them not to fuck any students and they didn't.
