    i don't like how it's shot. both the camera used and the style of the shots. it feels like a buffy episode or something, it's shot like a cheap TV show and has a camera they use for reality shows.


    other than that i thought it was a really good film.

    The Thing
    really? he probably knows that one.


    go with the fog. it's like the mist but kinda lamer.

    as for cloverfield go with [REC] (the spanish version). [REC] is basically the godfather of modern documentary style fiction horror along with blair witch project (like the film is recorded with a hand cam and what you are watching is what the characters recorded).


    and if you haven't seen it, blair witch project is a good one too. it's like paranormal activity but not shit.


    when i say godfather and all that shit i mean spearheaded it well into mainstream by giving JJ the inspiration for cloverfield.

    I think that's kind of the point. All Michael Mann movies are shot that way and I think it gives it a more authentic feel, combined with all the actually believable action that his movies have.

    species was a total obscure fetish movie.

    the problem is that this so called authentic feel is overused in shitty low production joints, so it crappifies the movie for me instead of adding something

    even though it was fucking awesome i have to say the first watch i was oogling at the lead half the time. she's just so god damn cute.

    It was interesting in its cultural depiction. But mostly badly acted.

    seriously, Boyle put no effort in looking for the lead guy. "Any old Indian will do", his daughter watches Skins and points him out. A pathetic effort.

    well sure the basic plot was kind of crap. But the underlying theme of the horrors in his life are kind of thrilling.

    It's definitely a shock to the system in how the culture differs.

    Ghost Rider 2

    3/10

    Some awesome effects and camera angles, but as with many comic book movies, the story is absolute trash. And about those good camera angles - for every awesome one that fit the scene perfectly, there about about 4 that made you cringe due to how awkward/shaky they are. Many of the fight scenes use this uber shaky camera shit, probably to make it look like the camera man is in the fight, but it just makes the film seem sloppy and semi difficult to keep track of who is attacking who.

    I cant even remember the names of the 2 main bad guys because of how little/awful the dialogue there is, the movie focusing on close ups of cages face and various explosions.

    Ghost Rider himself has some awful one-liners that are obviously meant to be witty, but end up making you sigh at how bad they are. Think Duke Nukem Forever. For example - he kills the first bad guy on a road and says "Road Kill". Not a single person in the audience laughed at this, but by the time this happened, a sizable amount of the audience had left the theater.

    The ending is piss awful - while the final fight scene kept me on the edge somewhat, how he defeats the second bad guy felt extremely rushed.

    I cant bash the effects - I really liked them, but they should of dropped the extremely large amount of dosh onto a better script/actors.

    This is by far my least favorite Cage film. Also, you know an action movie is bad when you are struggling to stay awake during key fight scenes.

    I think you're talking about The Host. I just saw that last week (I'm on a monster/survival movie binge right now) Really good movie, especially since they depict the monster in broad daylight throughout the movie, unlike the few glances in Cloverfield.

    War of the Worlds?
    Saw it, I have it on DVD. Thanks for trying though, one of my favorite movies.


    really? he probably knows that one.

    go with the fog. it's like the mist but kinda lamer.

    as for cloverfield go with [REC] (the spanish version). [REC] is basically the godfather of modern documentary style fiction horror along with blair witch project (like the film is recorded with a hand cam and what you are watching is what the characters recorded).

    and if you haven't seen it, blair witch project is a good one too. it's like paranormal activity but not shit.

    when i say godfather and all that shit i mean spearheaded it well into mainstream by giving JJ the inspiration for cloverfield.
    Yes, I plan on watching the Thing this week. I'll check out the Fog. Heard about [REC], although I like monsters over paranormal. I'll be sure to check it out though.
    Seen Blair Witch Project already.

    Back to the future - 10/10
    Back to the future: Part II - 9/10
    Back to the future: Part III - 10/10

    Out of all the iconic 80's movies, these are my favorites. I'm not sure how I feel about none of them really having an end (except for the third). Unlike, say, the Bourne trilogy, you NEED to watch the other movies for them to make sense.

    Acting was awesome, effects were good for the time it was made, and camera work was alright. The writing was great, I really loved all the characters (well, hated some of them). I really like how it changes every movie, but still keeping the same style, like how the third one is a lot more intense than the first.

    The first movie is still my favorite, but if I had to make a "top 10" list, I'd include the 3 movies as one, because it really gets better if you watch the three in sequence.

       I remembered almost everything from the first time I watched it, but I'm actually glad I forgot the ending to the third one, that was really awesome

    [REC] is    part monsters part paranormal, but mostly monsters   <not a really big spoiler. well i guess it is but it's not something anyone really gives a fuck about anyways.

    zombies are monsters, plain and simple, even if they have some sort of paranormal backing to them.
