I figured I'd start up a movie thread for all of you soon to be criminals out there (it's okay we'll blame the game and plead insanity if we're caught), here you can talk about films and shed your feelings on them. I'll start with films I've seen recently.

Fido.
http://www.moviesonline.ca/AdvHTML_Upload/fido-dvd-art.jpg
Now I'm a full-on zombie lover, I've seen both Night of The Living Deads, both Dawns, The original Day (didn't want to see the Day of the Dead remake, Nick Cannon is not allowed to be the hero), Diary of The Dead, Shaun Of The Dead, all Return of The Living Dead's, and many more.

I actually liked Fido quite a bit, it has the stereotypical 50's, high tech, high society feel where people keep zombies basically as pets, and have them do daily chores and even keep some as..... lovers. Well anyway the movie is about a boy and his do... I mean Zombie, who both become friends, kinda. The movie is pretty humorous, and is one I recommend to people who like zombies and laid back comedies. I know my favorite part is where two brothers who are probably like 12, come up with a plan to kill Fido and look like heroes, but the plan completely backfires...

Now I was invited to see this film in a Netflix party, do not watch this film. It's easily the worst film I've ever seen in my life. You're probably thinking "It's not that bad, you're just a woosie!" Well if you like seeing Willem Dafoe shoot blood out of his bad place, and seeing a girl cut hers with scissors, then sure watch this film weirdo! Seriously this film has no point and has nothing to do with the AntiChrist, it tries to throw dark and weird imagery at you with violent/perverse things. I personally think me warning you guys about this film is like a public service.

Any movies yall want to throw out?

Oh yeah, Fido was great. Billy Connolly makes everything better. It reminded me of Stubbs the Zombie somewhat.

Movies I've watched recently (I'll only include the ones I saw for the first time)

The Big Lebowski

http://dvdmedia.ign.com/dvd/image/article/907/907337/the-big-lebowski-10th-anniversary-edition-20080903100630212-000.jpg

This was a great movie, very funny. It slowed down for a bit leading up to the end, but it was great otherwise. John Goodman is hilarious in this, especially in his scenes with Steve Buscemi. I'm not a fan of Jeff Bridges, but he was actually pretty good in this.

The Mission

http://www.teachwithmovies.org/guides/mission-DVDcover.jpg

This was another great movie, a real classic. Everything from the acting to the music was superb. It's plot is somewhat like the typical Avatar (which I hated)/Dances with Wolves thing, but that's just on the surface. It's much more than that. I'd highly recommend this one.

Alice in Wonderland

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/f/ff/Alice-In-Wonderland-Theatrical-Poster.jpg

It was a pretty good film until the last 30-40 minutes, then it became a stereotypical fantasy film. Up until that it was great, Stephen Fry was excellent as the Cheshire Cat and all the acting, save Johnny Depp, was great. I don't like Johnny Depp because I find that whenever he isn't doing a drama, he either plays Jack Sparrow or Willy Wonka, and that is the case here where he combines the two somewhat. You aren't watching the Mad Hatter in this, you are watching Johnny Depp dressed up as the Mad Hatter. Still, it's a decent movie but not a memorable one. About the 3d, it didn't add much except for when Alice falls down the rabbit hole. I find the glasses dim the colours on screen, which is not a good thing for an Alice film.

I agree with the Johnnny Depp satement. I do think he's a good actor, but he kinda does roles the same, or it's just him coming through. It's kinda like when Clooney was Batman, it was just George Clooney in a suit..... And Fido reminded me a lot of Stubbs The Zombie as well.

A lot of people didn't like Antichrist. I wasn't sure what to expect when I first saw it on Netflix, but I can tell you this.... it's supposedly an analogy for schizophrenia. The gal in this film is slowly going insane, and the imagery is all an allusion to that fact. I found the movie really hard to follow, and the sexual violence was pretty over the top. Definitely not a movie for everyone, but you could do worse in terms of horror movies.

In terms of horror yes, but it felt like the film tried to throw the over the top imagery to try and get what was meant across. To me instead of showing a paranoia/schizophrenia aspect it, to me, showed stupidity. When Willem Dafoe shot out blood from his dong, and the lady took scissors to her downstairs it was just like "Why?" Hahaha, yeah totally wasn't a film for me.

Okay here's my next batch of films, this is Action Package Number 1.

Cobra.
http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_vY8I5HvOvk8/SWzxtFrgEyI/AAAAAAAABS0/ErNmPFcJ29A/s400/COBRA.gif

Cobra is about a hard-edged cop who doesn't take ***** from anyone. Stallone is on the hunt for a group of cult-like serial killers who's victims have all been women. Once a woman named "Ingrid" survives an encounter with the killers, she is now under Stallone's watch. Well anyways it's got good action, plot's quite random but this is an action movie with a true 80's action hero. This is where you're supposed to see bad guys get their asses kicked and get punked by a sweaty, one-liner, muscular badass. This scene for example.

Psycho: "I'm a hunter of the new world!"

Stallone: "No, you're a disease, and I'm the cure."
mE2-7a_F_B0

See these old school action heroes are my favorites, they make all of their enemies look like the punks they are. The film didn't really get praised, actually it got bashed pretty hard, but as an action fan and Stallone fan I enjoyed it a lot.

-------------------------------------

This next film is called Under Siege.
http://www.mybikeonline.ch/images/under_siege.jpg

Now I know many dislike Seagal, but if you look at his films and hold them no higher than what they were meant to be, you'll find that he has some pretty good action flicks, many in which he plays a cop who doesn't follow the rules and basically delivers random beat downs, that's not really the case here. Seagal is Casey Ryback who is but a simple chef.

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_PuZoLkvmBbc/SW5n6LQXTWI/AAAAAAAACHk/RMH-fPF1sR4/s320/Casey+Ryback.jpg
OR IS HE?! Turns out he's an ex-seal, which means these guys who took over the USS Missouri are in deep *****.

Tommy Lee Jones as William Stranix.
http://www.sworddragon.com/passions/images/jones4.jpg

Gary Busey as Commander Krill. And yes that is Busey, and that is in the movie.
http://cdn2.maxim.com/maxim/files/2009/09/09/13-unintentionally-scary-movie-scenes/under-siege_articlelg.jpg

It's basically Die Hard on a boat plot wise, but the film has great Seagal beatdowns, the only drawback is the woman that he his protecting, she's pretty and shows her boobs, but everytime she opens her mouth you want Seagal to use his wu-shu or whatever other asian martial art he knows on her.

Erika Eleniak is Miss July. Her character was meant to go to the party that was being held on the ship to strutt her stuff to the service boys. Well, they made her character bigger than what it needed to be, and she's more of an annoyance.

A truly scary moment from no one other than Gary Busey.

It's a good action flick, and once again if you're like me, and love seeing the badies get made out to look like punks and enjoy seeing them killed in over the top ways, then check it out!

-------------------------------------

Total Recall.
http://thereelworld.files.wordpress.com/2008/07/total_recall.jpg

This is actually one of my favorite Arnie films, some of his best dialogue and kills come from this movie. Arnie plays a guy called Douglas Quaid, who lives with his wife Lori (Sharon Stone) on earth. Quaid is a man looking for adventure, so he turns towards a virual memory distributer known as Rekall. Arnie chooses the planet he wants to go to, his background and even the woman of his dreams. As the events unfold, is it really all just a virtual memory or is it real?

So onto the core of the film. Arnold, after being tailed on Earth by this badass right here....

Michael Ironside. Arnolds main foe.
http://runningdownhill.files.wordpress.com/2008/07/totalrecall10.jpg

....... He travels to Mars in search of answers, a planet that is also engaged in a civil war. Quaid encounters mutants with mangled faces, 3 boobs, and so on. He then joins the rebllion against the man called Cohaagen who basically owns Mars and it's air supply. Here look at this classic beatdown.

Language and violence, watch at your own discretion..... Wait... You're on a Kane and Lynch forum!

Aww STFU ...

Seriously though , don't you even dare associate schizophrenia with this artificial and downright silly look on human fetishism , so yeah , STFU ...

Back on topic ... on a off topic board ...

I pretty much watched all the award winning / nominated films of 2009 and boy they were utterly crap , 2009 was by far one of the worst year for film and gaming industry , really , Hurt Locker best film of the year ? ...
And what were the other competition ? Inglorious Basterds , for real ? and they dare ignore Public Enemies ... what the hell were people thinking ...

There's also this Hong Kong director called Johnnie To (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0864775/) , he made dramatic action films , with mostly choeregraphed shootouts , i recommend his films to everyone in this planet , maybe not all his films , but The Mission , Election 1 , Election 2 , Exiled and this year's Vengeance are quite ... enjoyable to watch ... (of course they're all in foreign language so read sub titles you must) ...

Anywya , last weekend i saw Troy , The Last Samurai and Heat again , i haven't seen these three films in five years and it was interesting to see how i look at them differently this time around ...

Troy was rather entertaining greek tragedy , with characters making unsubtle speeches but hey , greek tragedies were like that , the whole film itself is much better than most outrageous crap we have today , yet i find it hard to recommend it to people , go figure ...

The Last Samurai , whoa , what a underrated gem , hollywood is being too hard on Edward Zwick , the film should have been nominated for best picture , not Master and Commander ...
Plus The Last Samurai makes Blood Diamond look amateurish ...

And finally , Heat ...
Well that was odly disappointing , i'm certainly going to get a lot of heat on this (pun seriously unintended) but i failed to see the masterpiece people were all clamoring about , first time i saw it i wasn't really paying attention , then throughout the last five years i've come to enjoy several Michael Mann's film , Collateral , Miami Vice , Ali , Public Enemies , they were all brilliant , so then i told myself maybe it's time to re-watch Heat and hopefully i might appreciate it more than five years ago ...
Now Heat wasn't a bad film , not at all , but ... i liked Miami Vice better ...
Yeah i can see you all trying to throw me out of the window but i don't know ...
That 'epic' shootout wasn't that epic (people call it the best Mann has done , i expected alot more than this really , even Miami Vice's climatic shootout was better) , the story was nice , but i felt it could have been more involved ... the themes were good but it was filmed in such a cold distant way , we understand the characters but that's about it , we don't feel them , we don't get involved with them , i'm not saying it's a failure to not make us feel for the characters but it does add a little something , of which Mann did it well with Collateral and even Public Enemies ...
Heat is a good film , but it is a bit overrated and i find it awkward that fans are bashing Mann's new films despite being , well , better ...

Plus the sound editing was as bad as Public Enemies and i saw no one complaining about that , perhaps i should try the new blu-ray version , apparently Mann supervised it , so who knows ...

Anywya ...

PS : Waingro does look ALOT and i mean ALOT like Lynch , the way he talks , moves , breathes ... and the whole aggressiveness on women too ...
We should start a petition asking Kevin Gage to play Lynch in the movie , and not Jamie Foxx ...
I mean it's not like Kevin Gage is having such a brilliant acting career right now , he probably would enjoy being typecasted into this same role ...

24th Mar 2010, 13:23
Oh hell yeah Gage should play Lynch! I thought Troy was okay, I just can't picture Brad Pitt as a warlord. I thought the Last Samurai was badass, I mean it does have the whole Dances With Wolves thing going on, but it's one of the few films that does it right. I've actually heard a lot of mixed reactions about Heat, I personally loved it.

Ah, Brazil. Our hearts were entertaining June. I love this movie becasue it is an extremely effective satire of both bureaucracy and of the 1984 tolitarian movie craze. Plus it's main theme is probably the second best song I've ever heard.

Now I'm not too big on anime, but this movie (and all the other Miyazaki movies for that matter) simply amazed me. The story is a steampunky town who have to defend their investment when the spirits of the forest want their land back. To me, this movie represents the struggle between man and nature. One could see the downfall of the miners as a play against Imperialism too. A great movie

Here is one I just saw:

http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff266/dariends/movies%20IMG/293_Tropa_de_elite.jpg


This movie was great. You should go out and watch it right now. It's about BOPE, which is basically a super special swat force in Brazil that tries to keep the favelas in check. This is a brutal, honest movie about things like police corruption, police brutality and why the favelas continue to exist. Even though it has few outright gunfights, or fights in general, it is still a supremely interesting and tense film. This is a really great film, probably one of my favourite films of all time. It is in Portuguese though, so if you don't like subtitles, you might like to skip this one.
