  1. Good Movies


    Let's start a thread about movies, recent and old that everybodys seen and likes.


  2. Today I watched Gone Baby Gone

    Great movie with a twist, and greater because it was filmed in my hometown of Boston

  3. Dang i watch soooooo many movies. I watched pretty much every movie that came out last summer(i worked at a theatre) and me and my friends watch several movies a week. I have been in a recent drought of good movies tho...

    with that said one of my all time favorite movies is Gladiator

  4. What ever you do DONT SEE 10000 BC, top 5 worst movies ever made.

    Gone Baby Gone was a pleasant surprise. As for other recent ones I would say Semi-Pro was enjoyable, Jumper was crappy, Cloverfield was sweet, Sweeny Todd was awesome, damn I see too many movies so I'm gonna stop there.

    Up coming movies to see: Indiana Jones 4, new Jet Li Jackie Chan movie, Iron Man.

  5. Has anyone ever seen the movie "Revolver" by Guy Ritchie? The critics seem to think its the worst film ever, but the fans mostly think that it was pretty good. It had a limited release in Dec.2007 in the U.S., but I think its been out in various other countries, since 2005. Here's the link-Revolver Its available on DVD this Tuesday, so I'm inclined to rent it.

  6. My work here is done.

  10. How about Pathfinder? While certainly not Oscar material, it was at least entertaining. There is nothing quite like good old savage brutality on the big screen.

  11. Recently watched "Wall St" for the first time. Awesome movie, and always funny seeing a 1986 mobile phone.

    The Prestige - another awesome movie. I'll pretty much watch anything with Christian Bale in it.

    Juno - absolutely terrible. You just want to punch the main chick.

    3:10 to Yuma - well worth watching.

    Eastern Promises - a little overated but still a good watch.

  12. We Own the Night-great movie even if it has marky mark.

    August Rush-Uhhh, no don't bother really.

    Man of the House-One of my personal favs with Tommy Lee Jones.

    No Country for Old Men-based solely on the reviews, I'm dying to see this one.
    ~ Nothing can kill the Grimace!!



  13. The Departed - In the spirit of St. Patty's
    12 Angry Men - Henry Fonda, CSI ain't got nothing on me.
    Casablanca - Of all the gin joints in all the world, she had to walk in to mine.

  14. This is a good thread idea, but I think recent/current movie reviews/picks should be separate from say for instance greatest/favorite movies.

    But heres my contribution:

    '08s

    Jumper-sucked

    meet the spartans-stupid, some funny stuff

    fools gold-actually not bad, also predictable, but funny

    Semipro-not his best/worst, funny and worthwhile for ferrel fans

    untraceable-pretty good, somewhat predictable

    Vantage point-pretty good


    Cant wait for Ironman.

    Older favorites: Heat, Usual suspects, naked gun, spaceballs, star wars, casablanca, gladiator, weekend at bernies, beverly hills cop, my favorite year, logans run, clue, scarface, enter the dragon, billy madison, platoon, waterboy, the good the bad and the ugly, needfull things, virtuosity, the princess bride, training day, three days of the condor, pulp fiction.

  15. The Departed.for St. Pat's. Drinnk a green beer in honor, plus Boston is a great town.

    That intro is great, look it up on your tube.

  16. I cant wait for Indiana Jones 4. It makes me want to go out and buy the others. Thats a great series of movies.

    Hell yea man, when I watched the trailer and the theme started playing I got a quick chill. Also it doesn't need ANY mentioning but I will do it anyway: The Dark Knight!

    For those that have missed it:

    YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

  18. I purchased The Departed after I watched it once. It was great. I am Legend is was great- plan to purchase the DVD of that one also. No Country For Old Men was pretty damn good- don't know if its worth purchasing though.

  19. i cant wait to see i am legend

    I'm looking forward to Ironman, especially to see how well Robert Downey Jr does. The comic relief/comedy looks really well done in the previews but has the potential to get annoying.

    A reviewer called it the twisted love child of" Step up 2 the Streets 2" and "Fight Club." Is it really the best fighting movie you've ever seen? IMHO, "City of Violence" would be my top pick. I'm reluctant to believe that a U.S. film would ever be considered top notch as far as fight scenes go, unless a choreographer from Hong Kong was involved.

  25. Its about this kid named jake who gets in a fight while on the football team and knocks this big guy out in one hit, and its a 225lb dude, so he has to move again, and he ends up going to this party and the host guy is like this is where all of our excitement is and shows people fighting in a circle, then since the host saw his video on youtube he wants to fight jake because the host is the best fighter in L.A., but he didnt know and it ends up being about the host guy trying to fight him the whole movie and the jake kid training his ass off. Its really good though, my gf even went with me and she even liked it, and she hates action/ fighting movies. Now go see it =)

    Suerely, you can't be serious?

  29. Big Trouble in Little China

    I thought I was the only one who liked that movie

  30. Love that movie...
    Just remember what ol' Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big old storm right in the eye and says, "Give me your best shot. I can take it."

  31. I didn't quite get Big Trouble in Little China, then again I didn't like Pulp Fiction either.
    Some that have been mentioned already that I've enjoyed lately:

    The Departed
    3:10 to Yuma
    The Last Samurai
    Momento (Unique but confusing!)
    Pan's Labyrinth

    I try and read when I've got time, but I can watch like 10 movies and be so comfy instead of reading a single book lol. 80 more pages to go in this one, You Shall Know Our Velocity by David Eggers. From AM somebody mentioned The Thing They Carried, and so I read that book and thoroughly enjoyed it!

  32. Beuwolf sucked. Really hated it but sat through it since I paid to rent it.

    If there was ONE movie that I could permanently ban everybody under the age of 21 from seeing, this would absolutely be it.

    There is nothing that could inappropriately glorify the hot headed, stereotypical badass sh!tball, disrespectful, high-school playboy, overly aggressive-hostile-piece-of-sh!t-attitude that IS our American male youth more than this folly.. the concept is a HUGE step in the wrong direction for impressionable young minds.. awful.

    Not to mention the black guy (Djimon whatever) who stars in the movie never bothered to learn how to use voice intonation..

    Never back down! = nevaAA BACK down..

  34. lol bunch of haters =p

  35. No Country for Old Men wasn't half as good as the reviews made it out to be.. I was disappointed. Anyone else agree?

    Yeah I was somewhat disapointed also. It was worth what I spent to rent it though. Not a bad movie but not as good as it was made out to be.

  37. Song Remains the Same by Led Zeppelin
    The Doors with Val Kilmer

  38. Kung Fu Hustle! What a cool movie

  39. Lock Stock and two smoking barrels...........one of the best movies to come out of the UK in a long time.

    Snatch and Fight CLub. Both good Pitt movies as well.
