Could you help me out with the name of a movie?
It's set in the Vietnam war, and follows a group of soldiers, with most of the focus on some sergeant of the master sergeants to the max.
At one point a mortar overheats and he takes a piss on it to cool it down.
An American fighter jet receives the wrong coordinates and fries a bunch of G.Is with napalm.
Aaand there's a Huey pilot called Snakeshit or something like that.
Tetsuo: The Iron Man - 6/10
Bizarre Japanese body horror about a bloke who's transformed into a metal abomination by a metal fetishist he ran down with his car. Yup. The effects are generally good and there's some really nice, stark imagery to build atmosphere; the first three quarters or so of its 67 minute length is pretty good. Then the metal fetishist reappears as the villain and the film really loses the plot; the rest of the film is mostly a strange stop motion chase sequence with some of the most offputting camerawork I've ever seen, and at this point the horror movie atmosphere alomost entirely disappears. By the end I'd totally lost interest.
The industrial soundtrack is great though, definitely the highlight of this film for me.
Re-Watched Ghostbusters: 9/10
Donnie Darko 9/10
That movie is simply mindblowing, I always wanted to see it but never got the chance. But holy crap the story is so fascinating and it all makes sense, it also leaves a lot of space for personal interpretation.
I watched some reviews on amazon about this movie and seriously some people are so fucking dumb, honestly what the fuck? Calling the movie boring and bash it to hell. I do not get it. The movie is brilliant, some said that expendables was more fun than DD. People need to grow up.
I only say that because I know people who I will literally refuse to let watch this film on account of it affecting them negatively
Iron Man. Never bothered with his Comic since i wrote him off as boring. Went in knowing nothing about anything and i was very positively surprised. Very good fun. 7/10
28 Days Later: 7/10
28 Weeks Later 7/10
I enjoyed these when I was younger more, and they're still enjoyable. However, in 28 Days Later everything feels very inconsistent and some parts just makes me wonder what the survivors are thinking. (Entering stores and running about like it was an all you can eat before clearing the building, protagonist is useless then turns into some tactical survivor type all of a sudden.etc)
The ending to 28 Weeks Later makes me wonder if there was (or is) to be a sequel?
i saw the great gatsby not long ago
the trailer for the new one is out
i like this cast
In Time - 7/10
Second time watching it. I still think it could be so much better.
I though the ending to 28 Days Later was terrible but maybe that was just me.
Tyrannosaur - 9/10
An extremely bleak film but with so much emotional depth. One of my favourite movies this year.
sacha baron cohen's humor lies in improv with unsuspecting audiences
he's pretty obviously not cut out for scripts
the humor was so forced. it wasn't the unfunniest comedy i've ever seen but damn
Saturday Night Fever
John Travolta is a genius.
Slightly more bitter and depressive than I would have thought though.
Children of Men - 9/10
seriously the best movie i've seen in a while. the cinematography was some of the best in any movie i've ever seen, there were no noticable gaps in the storyline, the acting was great, and it just tied together so well. didn't get bored once and was blown away by the 5 minute scenes of insanity that were shot in one take. i have no idea how they did it.
michael caine's character in the movie just fucking makes it too
The Departed 8/10
Although the movie had a great cast, I often felt like the movie kept getting strung on which made it hard to watch at times, but the ending made up for it with the twist.
''In 1990, to protect his fragile mother from a fatal shock after a long coma, a young man must keep her from learning that her beloved nation of East Germany as she knew it has disappeared.''
Watched a few segments of this film in collage whilst we were studying the Berlin Wall. Went home and watched the whole film, really enjoyed it.
Primer - No rating yet
I feel stupid. I tried to pay attention and understand what was going on but I didn't understand much. Going to have to give it another watch to understand what is going on.
Pretty great movie. Amazing soundtrack, awesome shots (especially the zero gravity hotel ones, but all of them were great), and overall just really good. However, there's just something that I can't put my finger on, that makes me not like this movie that much. Maybe it's the dialogue (I found the movie really clever, but I can't say the same about the dialogue), or maybe it's the acting, it was good for the most part, but there wasn't anything special about it, not to mention I don't like Marion Cotillard that much.
I'd definitely recommend it, though I'm pretty sure there isn't anyone here who hasn't seen it
"Cashback", Here's the poster:
If you guessed from that poster that this movie is going to have a lot of tits & ass, you would be right. Its a British movie about an starving artist who looks really quite awkward and skinny but somehow manages to score with all these hot girls. Long story short, he finds out he can stop time and then pull down ladies tops and skirts and then sketch pictures of them.
It's a fun movie to watch and doesn't fail to deliver in the nudity category, unrealistic at times.
It gives off an indie movie vibe even though it's not exactly low budget.
Acting: 8.5/10 Plot: 7/10
Godammit I should not browse facepunch while in school
The Island - 7/10
Great movie IMO, cool concept but lots and lots of explosions. It's really easy to tell who made it.
good recent Polanski
Christoph Waltz, Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet and that Police dude from Magnolia.
These people are natural awesome actors and kept this short hour and a bit film up to speed.
I've heard that the play is miles better.
wouldn't be surprised.
It's like how 12 Angry Men takes place in one room only.
ahh, I heard it played in London a few years ago, would have been able to make that if I heard about it.
