Fun anecdote: Some cute Asian girl at work was chatting with me about movies and mentioned the Karate Kid.

Cause if so I wanna chime in with the rest of the crowd and say that it's a great movie. I thought it was going to flat out suck and be nothing but a bunch of "clever" pop culture references. I'm sure glad I was wrong.

Also, I re-watched the original Let the Right One In a while back and I remembered how much I loved it. A REAL vampire movie? Likable characters? A STORYLINE? All in the same movie? You betcha.

Weeeell I've been movie-seeing more than usual lately, so I'll make a contribution.
Tron Legacy: saw it twice. Music was great, would have liked more Lightcycle time but whatever. My God Cora is so hot and Jeff Bridges x 2 yes yes yes. Also Daft Punk was in it. If that doesn't make it awesome, I don't know what would.
True Grit: more Jeff Bridges. It was great, that fourteen year old actress who played the girl was really really good and the best part of movie was the duster-speak. 'You ain't no bigger than a corn nut!' Yes.
Green Hornet: I kind of hated Seth Rogen a little before seeing this but I respect him a bit more now. Badass and delightful and full of silliness and rad bromance.
Harry Potter 7, Part 1: the second half of the book was the better half anyways, right? RIGHT?

More movie-seeing in the future hopefully. I love to hate on stuff, but movies are one thing that I truly enjoy.
>> No. 4496
Agreed on RED and Green Hornet, although I tend to like Seth Rogen because we're both geeks. And because he voice-acts so much.

I wanna see True Grit and TRON really badly, especially TRON, but everyone I know's already seen it twice or has already passed it off as stupid and won't go with me. I have this irrational fear of seeing a movie by myself.
>> No. 4503
Anon are you me? I'm a cinema student and I can't watch movies by myself. Ever.

That being said, I ended up seeing "The Fighter" last night a couple of good friends of mine, and while I liked the acting of Wahlberg and Bale, there were some directorial things that kind of made me go "Hmm..."

Also they shot on Fujifilm which gave the film this weird but kind of cool grainy look and I had trouble remembering where I saw it before and then remembered I shot my 310 final on Fujifilm and had the exact same problem of graininess.

If we were in the same area, I'd totally go with you, Anonybro. We'd have a gay old time. I'd see Tron a third time and True Grit a second time without a second thought.

Teeth's a good movie if you don't plan on taking any part of it seriously.

Also, I saw Rango and Devil a few days back.
Rango was awesome, the level of detail and the music score instantly won me over. I could go on and on, but everything that needs to be said about that movie has already been said over 100 times. Just go watch it.

And Devil was ehh. I was expecting typical AWFUL M. Night Shyamalan and was looking forward to something similar to The Happening, but sadly it wasn't THAT awful. Not a good movie, but not a horrible movie. I am still disappoint.

>> US No. 5940
Devil was one of those movies where I felt it would have been much scarier if there WEREN'T any paranormal elements. There's something a lot more sinister and scary about people just flipping out and killing everyone than "oh it was the Devil the whole time I guess SPOILER ALERT."

Also it was just based on an M. Night story, it was written and directed by other people, which could be why it was just mediocre and not full out terrible. What happened, M. Night? I used to love your stuff.

The most recent movie I saw was Heavy Metal. It was...it was amazing. Honestly the animation was a lot better than the parodies made me believe. Also John Candy was in it
>> US No. 5945
If you want to see a movie that's exactly like that with no paranormal elements, see The Chaos Experiment. It's just people trapped in an abandoned hotel steam room until they all die.

I always figured that the reason Brad Bird's movies always seem to have a redheaded doofy villain (or redheaded doof of some kind) was that it's a self-deprecating jab at ol' redheaded Bird himself. Though Mansley does make for a pretty hilarious Evil Animated Conan O'Brien too, I'll admit it.

I saw Gnomeo and Juliet last week. I was surprised. It was actually REALLY good.

But I pissed my friend right the fuck off. I've studied Shakespeare, and she wanted me to explain the plot of Romeo and Juliet to her, in its entirety, before we saw the movie.
So there were virtually no surprises for her.

But the one thing about the film that bugged me- Whole damn time, I was trying to figure out who Mercutio was supposed to be. Still don't know. Don't even think he's really there.

I actually just finished reading Atlas Shrugged about a week after they announced the movie, and son, I am excite.

If you are like many whom I presume to be a little too busy and/or impatient to slog through roughly 1069 pages of text, the movie is going to be in three(?) parts and seems like it's actually going to be an incredibly faithful adaptation of Ayn Rand's masterwork.

That being said, I'm jumping the gun a little here. It'll be out on April 15th and it's going to be limited showing (god damn it Edmonton don't make me miss out on this, like half the other movies I've wanted so badly to see). Sooo, hopefully there's enough demand in this little pocket of culture for the movie. If not, I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be able to swing a road trip, and I'll just have to wait for DVD. Which would be unfortunate and lame.

>incredibly faithful adaptation
except for the bits where
1) the film is now set in the present day, where the loss of railroads would be inconvenient, yes, but not apocalyptic, as it was/would be in the time period of the novel
>> CA No. 6238
The present day bit is going to be challenging. I was taken aback too, at first. I get the feeling they'll be able to work it into their timeline, somehow. If they don't... well, you're entirely right. It wouldn't be nearly so apocalyptic.
And, by incredibly faithful, I'm also drawing comparisons to other "based on book" movies. The majority of them bear a passing semblance, at best, and take enormous liberties to keep the movie paced and/or the audience attracted. Despite having to cram an awful lot into the film, they've tried to stick to the book - word for word, in some cases - as best as they could. I'm mostly worried about Franciso's speech at the party, and Galt's speech at the end... god, that took me about 3 or 4 days to slog through, and I believe the longest monologue on record in cinema (that I am aware of, to my limited specific knowledge) is approximately 6 minutes long. So. I wish them luck with those. But they've been revising the screenplay, re-reading the book, etc etc, constantly, during the process. It's a labour of love. They basically almost lost their license to produce it, they've been taking so long and had so much to struggle through.

And, yes, Fransico doesn't look like how I imagined. Neither does Hank, to be perfectly honest. Looks like they've got a stellar Dagny, though.

That would be more accurate if all the strikers in the book were complaining about doing the menial day-to-day tasks. But they're not. They've got certain technologies to improve their work to free time ratio, and they rather enjoy work in simple, as well as complex tasks.
That being said, I'm being picky, it's just a comic. It certainly applies to the BioShock take of Atlas Shrugged, though.
>> CA No. 6240
Oh, and Ayn Rand's principals are valid theories, regardless of the age they're applied to. I'm fairly confident they'll manage to get the just of it across, regardless of it being set in a modern era. If anything, it'll help validate objectivism and apply it directly to the here and now. That'd be my my first guess for them setting it now, instead of earlier.
>> US No. 6285
File 130102977652.jpg - (321.23KB , 700x493 , armadillo.jpg )
Rand had/has quite a cult of personality, which leaves me inclined to disregard most of what she wrote, and her followers. Lets just leave my opinions at that.

Anyways, Armadillo was fairly interesting as far as embedded war movies go.
>> US No. 6286
Objectivism is fuck-you-got-mine bullshit. The whole idea that "the proper moral purpose of one's life is the pursuit of one's own happiness" embodies a rejection of altruism and charity, ties in very nicely with the "pull yourself up by your own bootstraps"* bullshit you hear all the time from selfish assholes, and is wrong.

* Which is, in itself, fucking ironic as shit because pulling yourself up by your own bootstraps is literally impossible and that was the original meaning of the phrase before it started getting harped on by Fox News types as an actual ideal that people are expected to do irl.

Seems I have unwittingly unleashed a can of worms. I read the book, it made some interesting points, her theory is a valid - theory - I never meant to indicate it was right or wrong, or that I was throwing all my weight behind it. But, the movie looks good. And hopefully I can see it in theaters.

saw Kung Fu Panda 2, reaction was mixed.
It's an awesome movie with fantastic action scenes, but I don't think they mixed the humor in too well. Dreamworks humor usually makes or breaks their movies for me, the first movie was wonderfully balanced but this one... seems a bit shaky.
Plus I strongly feel that the last fast scene could have gone more epically.
But aside from that, it made me laugh, nearly brought me to tears, and has left fuzzies in my heart, so I think it turned out okay in the end.
