Ninjas vs Vampires (it's on NetFlix)
This thread is basically to make up for the old foh movie house.
List movies that you want to discuss but are older and not really worth starting an entire thread over.
Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows
finally caught this last night. I dunno what the board consensus was but there was some pretty crap moments in a pretty decent action movie. Wtf was that telepathic shit going on between holmes and moriarty?
Silly but potentially awesome movie which was ruined by the bratty obnoxious fucking kid. And wtf with all the hip hop references? These are white people. And why is everyone in the future driving shitty cars from the 90s?
Ninjas vs Vampires (it's on NetFlix)
Big Trouble in Little China is always good for a re-watch.
i also saw wreck-it-ralph last week, that was actually a pretty fucking sweet film. it made you care about the characters and it even had a great score. cant wait for a sequel.
was listening to a pod of "How Did This Get Made?" and ran across their review of Punisher: Warzone. they were praising this movie so highly i had to stop the podcast and check it out. im 30 minutes in and holy shit this movie is brutal as fuck. lots of action, lots of cheese and it even has the stepdad from Arrow. so far this is easily one of the goriest comic book based movies i have ever seen.
great fucking movie. bloodbath from start to finish. completely over the top violence and cheesefantastic acting. Jigsaw and his fucking insane brother were awesome villains.would have liked to have seen more russian mob, but oh well, cant have everything. also great metal soundtrack, rob zombie even made a not so shitty song for it.
i highly recommend this film.
went back and listened to the pod again. apparently the director made this movie because the guy the studio wanted passed and the movie she did make was so true to the comics and dark that it kinda ruined her career. she isnt happy she made it.

Finally got around to watching Attack The Block tonight. Heh was pretty fucking good. its surprisingly creative, original and funny. They didnt puss out either on the the deaths. Well cept a lil bit at the end.
The Impossible was a decent movie. And just watched Side Effects this weekend, I thought it was great.

Last night I downloaded and watched the new Red Dawn.
Holy shit what a terrible movie. Though as a father who has kids who were big fans of "Drake and Josh" on Nickelodeon, it was neat to see Josh Peck in a movie.
I had zero issues with North Korea being one of the invaders. They do have the worlds 4th largest army and had massive help from the Russians.
My biggest gripe was there was almost no military resistance even in areas where there were military bases. Also I hate movies that end before a resolution.
Two movies I adore but have had little luck (and spent little effort) in finding blue (sorry for the additional aside, but I fucking hate the word blu and refuse to say/type it...except for just now) ray of are - Perfume: The Story of a Murderer and Thank You For Smoking.
Never read the book by Süskind, but Dustin Hoffman and Severus Snape were in Perfume and so I checked it out and was just blown away. It was like a historical supervillain story and apparently a number of people hated the ending but I thought it was perfect and that just reaffirmed my belief that people are stupid. Also, if you like gingers and boobs, the film won't disappoint.
Thank You For Smoking is just a wickedly delicious satire and I'm a sucker for cutting mockery that's well-done.
Thank You For Smoking is indeed excellent. ive seen it a few times and its not only a good film you can actually take pointers from the lead actor and can totally convince people of whatever bullshit you want. i wouldnt be surprised he studied darren brown for the film.
Just picked up Lockout, with Guy Pierce. It was a completely unoriginal story stolen by mashing up Escape From New York and Die Hard, but Pierce's character was pretty entertaining regardless. I paid $4 and don't fill ripped off. More than that and I might /shrug
Lockout was exactly what it was advertised, a low-budget Escape From Space Jail, but with the addition of Guy Pearce, which made it even better. I don't know if he's just a total raging asshole to work with or what, but he seems way too talented to be relegated to B movies, even if he does vastly improve the quality of shit movies by being in them.
I just saw Next with Nic Cage, Julianne Moore, and Jessica Biel. What a garbage movie. Had an interesting premise and a pretty awesome opening scene showcasing his superpower. Then just blah blah romance movie with unbelievable bird hair Nic Cage as romantic interest and almost no action. Then, I guess I'll spoiler it but it is a shit movie I'd never recommend to anyone:
Waste of time.
uh? didnt the Next endSpoiler:
oh shit you're right. Next is about the dude that sees like 10 minutes in the future and retcons his way through the whole movie. it was horrible.
I dont know why but i hated atttack the block , and i usually love bad sci fi movies , point and case Piranhaconda and Sharktopus are great movies
I can understand why you hated it. The main characters were mostly little fuckstains. It was still a cool movie with an interesting concept.
I finally got around to watching Schindler's List. Decent movie, would watch again.
Just saw the latest Resident Evil. All I can really say is... wtf? What was the point of the movie? The series should have concluded at #2. I'm an RE fanboi, but don't waste your time on this pile o shit.
I've tried a couple times to watch the 3rd Resident Evil and just found it shit compared to the first 2. Should have stopped at 2 or at least could have made 3 not such a clusterfuck and round out the storyline as a trilogy.
