Thought we could use another go to thread in the Talkies and Popcorn other than what have you seen recently


Anyone else see the Evil Dead Remake?

havent. is it any good? when i take that cheerleader out for our first date, it might be cool to scare the poop out of her. "It's okay, Susan. Just hold onto me." Of course, this means that afterword, I'd have to put up with her opinion of the movie. Eew. Im such an asshole.

Its not bad man. Every scene is really violent and the movies pacing is extremely fast. Its like they are a bit afraid that youre going to get bored or stop being scared at some point. The gore is definitely way higher than the scare factor. Overall its worth seeing. Stay after the credits to see Brucey

That's hilarious, your humour is going to make me sleep with the light on tonight I think

i heard it was good, might see but probably wont as i dont have the money. anyway, looking at your sig byd, i saw argo- overrated honestly. i thought it was super okay. nothing ground breaking. wreck it ralph was fun- my friends loved it more than i did, but it was a solid movie. i heard taken 2 was bad and i also heard brave was kinda dumb. though those last two i havent seen myself. i didn't like the first taken though so i had no interest in the second. i really need to see the avengers though, i heard that was incredible.

Sometimes with movies I feel like I'm throwing darts and hoping to hit a bullseye. That list looks that way eh?

To be honest I thought Silver Linings Playbook was the movie of the year so far. So much emotion, I really liked it.

I have a feeling I'm going to bail on it before I'm done but I'll try my best lol

I can't believe I haven't seen Lincoln yet, the movie looks an outstanding historical epic.

I got kind of pissed at Life of Pi for winning so many awards.

The Hobbit got robbed.

I loved the original Evil Dead movies, and of course Army of Darkness. I'll definitely be watching it, but I don't have the money to go to the cinema right now.

Anybody excited to see the new Great Gatsby film?

i agree about the hobbit being robbed. no idea why that movie is being so underrated. i didn't like book of the great gatsby, so i cant say im too excited about the movie. also not really a dicaprio fan. so that has that going against it for me as well.

I loved the Hobbit, I think it was done better than the LotR proper. I wasn't the biggest fan of the Great Gatsby, but it was mostly because of the writing style. I love the time period, and I'm actually a big fan of DiCaprio so I'm pretty excited about it

A few brief thoughts on your list Dave:

Argo (solid, though nothing amazing)
Lincoln (DDL's worst movie, over-hyped but watchable)
Wreck-it Ralph (awesome, Silverman manages to pitch cuteness just right without being sickly. Brief MGS reference was amazing)
Moonrise Kingdom (second best film of last year: proof that Willis still has some taste and acting chops)
Total Recall (unnecessary remake; it's pretty bad. Not a huge Farrell fan anyway)
Taken 2 (action can only carry a movie so far. Neeson is a badass, but he doesn't stop this from being an epic fail)
Jack Reacher (having read the books, if anything Cruise is the antithesis of Reacher. Even taken as a separate entity it's pretty poor)
Brave (not as good as I was hoping it would be. HTTYD looks like it will stay my favourite Pixar movie for a while yet)
Life of Pi (Ang Lee - most overrated director of the past 20 years. Shitty movie is shitty)

What are your top 10 2012 movies?
You guys might have seen mine but I can post it again
I still feel like once I see Lincoln it'll make my list. Too big of a man crush on Daniel

i groaned when i saw the trailer. there's been a complete departure from Fitzgerald's actual style. It's been oversexed and stuff because thats the only way Americans would watch. May as well be a different book/movie. Also not a DiCaprio fan.

What is #8?

I think Lawless and Looper were the biggest disappointments of the the year. I was expecting gold from Looper, then halfway through it became a nice story about a single mom.

Laweless has a cast of Shia Labeuf, Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, and yet its still mediocre. Shia was grossly over used when the screen time should have been split to the most dynamic interesting people.

For a Good Time, Call... is a comedy about two women who create a phone sex line. It's part gold, part shite, but the good bits are hilarious. Definitely worth a watch.

Watched Life of Pi. It was good. I don't think it deserved so many awards, like it cleaned up in the Oscars. But it was obviously really well animated. Shed a single tear for Orange Juice

Just found out that my cousin (artist) was contacted by a developer of "The Human Centipede 2" and wants her to produce some art for them to hang up in their office.

She creates a lot of stickers/pins/drawings of horror movies that are reasonably priced.

Now I congratulated her as that is a pretty big compliment and asked "Have you seen it? What are you going to draw?"
"Nope, don't want to- will probably just draw the villain's face"

Saw Taken 2 last night. Wasn't overly impressed but it was still fun. The novelty value was out the window unfortunately

Have a tough time watching Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.
I love Asian Kung-Fu revenge flicks.
But when characters can simply fly out of the scene inexplicably just because they've trained is such a plot hole. I counted twice where the bad guy was cornered and just flew out of the country basically. Seemed like a pretty cheap way to not have plot - or make shortcuts. Maybe I just don't understand, but it just seemed so artsy it was pretentious. That was my biggest gripe. The rest of the movie was a good piece of art. A lot of deep meaning about life, etc. I was just really caught up on the flying segments. The actors looked silly getting flown around with strings
