Title: What was the last movie you saw?
Chatulio - September 21, 2006 05:06 PM (GMT)
Thought I'd start one of these threads here, since I saw one elsewhere...
So, I watched Shaun of the Dead today, a pretty good rom/zom/com... :D
(A Romantic Comedy. With Zombies)
Pretty good....and British made! ^_^

I loved Shaun of the Dead, very solid movie...
the last one I saw in theaters was Beerfest which was positively amazing, though not quite as good as Super Troopers.
The last movie I saw on tv was Enemy of the State with Will Smith and Gene Hackman, it was made a number of years ago but it's eerily prophetic concerning the whole civil liberties vs. safety battle here in the US.
Darzog - September 21, 2006 06:16 PM (GMT)
Shaun of the Dead was a very good movie. And Enemy of the State was a pretty good conspiracy theory movie. A little overboard, but made well.
The ladt movie I saw in the theatres was Pirates of the Caribbean 2. There's a whole thread devoted to it, Tsu really likes it, Rav thinks Sparrow said savvy too much in #1. Personally I thought it was well done in most regards. I think they were very inconsistent with the Kraken and how long it takes to pull a ship down, and the end was fairly poor. Too many things needed to be tidied up and they were all just thrown together before the credits to make room for #3. Not cleaned up well or seamlessly in my opinion.

Good movies mentioned. 'Nuff said.
Last I saw was Eward Scissorhands, and I could go to rant about how damned amazing it is, but Rav would just get irritated again :lol:
Shana - September 21, 2006 06:37 PM (GMT)
The last movie I saw on TV was Empire of the Sun and I really enjoyed it. Its probably 20 years old, and starred Christian Bale (who to me looked like a young Chat :embarrassed: ).
The last movie I saw at the theater was POTC2. It was okay.
I want to see Hollywoodland and The Black Dahlia soon.
Chatulio - September 21, 2006 06:38 PM (GMT)
Oh, feel free Az....just don't rant to me about it on MSN... :D ;)
Aztaroth - September 21, 2006 07:01 PM (GMT)
Okay, see, Edward Scissorhands was one of the best movies I've ever seen! Definately the best I've seen that was made this century! The social criticism in it alone makes it worth seeing, and having a protagonist that is the embodiment of the "tortured artist" stereotype allows me to feel the movie in an entirely different way than, say, Pulp Fiction which is my favourite movie evar... ES, I am aboslutely postive, appealed to every artist and/or writer or just creative perosn in the world, as well as all social outcasts, just for the main character, who Johnny Depp plays PERFECTLY, and I can really see why oh so many girls have a crush on him, he looked extremely cute here! Tim Burton, who made the movie, is a fucking genius!!! He managed to make a world that, while it is extremely different than ours and has many very unrealistic sides to it, but despite this or because of it, it just works so damned freaking well!! The ending, while immensely predictable, was fabulous and if not for my nigh-inhuman selfcontrol would have made me cry! Seriously! There are NOT many movies that can claim as much, and I was very surprised to find that this one did, it didn't seem like one that would, but that just goes to show how damned good it is! If you haven't seen it, I urge you to do so... if you are a creative person/artist/writer/similar you are going to LOVE it, otherwise you'll be like Rav and like it. It's got moments that make you laugh, moments that really make you pissed off at the sheer truth of how evil humans can be, portrayed expertly here! And the ending, though not directly sad, is very "strong" and, well, it's actually got a pretty good ending, which in itself is a very unusual thing. Again, it is predictable, but it's truly good. So, yeah, I think that just about wraps up my rambling, if you're actually reading this you are a masochist and should be wiped out of existance right away. See, my ranting as you may have noticed by now tends to ramble incoherently for undeterminable periods of time, and reading through it will, I can gurantee, either confuse you or directly destroy your intellect, though if you actually start readin something like this your intelligence can't be that high from the beginning, so I guess it's not much of a loss. Though if your intelligence is low when you begin this, and my vastly superior knowledge seeps through my words, it could maybe actually raise your brainpower? I don't know, maybe so, I need to try it out some more. Just writing a bucnh of bullshit like this is fun! Maybe I should start blogging...? With my leet skillz in the writing bullshit area of life I could make myself really successful doing just that... on the other hand, the vast amount of fans, demanding more blogs and stuff, would probably just irritate me... looky, i started typing about something completely different than what I started out with... this is what they called Attention Deficit Disorder or ADD, kids! Remember it, it might save your life one day. As will not eating junk food. Of course, your intelligence will have decreased to a level that you couldn't possible understand a word anymore so I guess writing anymore is pointless... unless you were stupid from the beginning, which you must have been as you can still understand this. What the hell am I doing... my fingers are started to hurt... I need to stop!! Argh, but I cannot! This is just too fun... it's like a drug, once you pop up you can'y stop! Curses! But maybe I should go back to the topic I started with... um... what was that again? Some movie I think... here's the ADD factor again... or maybe it's schizofrenia? Yay I have multiple personalities! Awesome! I'm a freak! Speaking of freaks, Edward scissorhands is an awesome movie! You need to watch it, it's really great! Whoa! I'm hungry so I'll go grab something so bye bye now okays? Edward Scissorhands rocks!

You know Az, it wouldn't hurt to divide it into paragraphs ;)
Much more enjoyable to read.
Aztaroth - September 21, 2006 07:11 PM (GMT)
No, see, that was a warning.
Never invite me to rant about anything.
Darzog - September 21, 2006 08:12 PM (GMT)
Actually, more than paragraphs, I think he needs to master the use of the period. Can anyone say run on sentence?
If you liked Ed Cutty-fingers, you might look into Donnie Darko. That was a very good movie. Very few artsy movies really catch me. I like most movies I see, but I'm much too grounded to get all goosy over artsy stuff. But Donnie Darko was an excellent movie and pulled me right in.
I don't want to give anything away, so I'll be very vague... the movie starts seeming to be a normal teen self discovery movie. Things quickly take a very odd turn and spiral into deeper realms of the psyche. On face value the movie is very good. If you take in the symbolism and hidden structure it becomes even better. There is a lot going on that you don't quite get right away, and more that you can't really get from the movie alone. After you've seen the movie, do some research about it and you can find out more information about what was really going on, what the "book" was all about and you'll understand even more about what happened and why. Then watch it again with the new knowledge and the movie becomes even better.
One recommendation... do NOT research the movie before watching it. You need to experience it once fresh, then get the background after you've seen it. Believe me, it will be more enjoyable that way. Once you have watched it, feel free to read all you can, there are several websites out there.

Cocaine's a helluva drug... :blink:
Yeah, Johnny Depp is pretty much the only drives-women-mad star I like in Hollywood right now because he's just a fabulous actor. He is an absolute individual, he plays by his own rules but in a very natural, nonchalant way: there's nothing fabricated about him, and he obviously has a very good off-the-cuff sense of humor. He's the mack, the best young actor on the planet at the moment, and I have nothing but respect for the man.

The last movie I saw in theaters was John Tucker Must Die. I quite enjoyed it, but I don't critisize alot of movies, and I thought it was a brilliant chick flick. Especially, the part where we took my male friend to go see it. :embarrassed: :D
The last movie I saw was Virgin Suicides. It was intriguing, but I didn't quite understand why they killed themselves. :unsure:
Shana - September 22, 2006 12:43 AM (GMT)
I enjoyed Virgin Suicides, too. They killed themselves because their parents sucked and their whole lives held no promise.:grumble:
Dragon Maiden - September 22, 2006 12:51 AM (GMT)
Yeah, thats what I was thinking, but I always think that the movie plots will hold more than that but this was made back in the 80's or early 90's or so and also set in the 70's. :embarrassed:
I loved how the oldest had sexual intercourse on the football field on her prom night. :D
As of now, I am watching Girl Interrupted.

Aw, how dramatic... They finally got the attention they craved! Yay!!
I hated that movie and I hate angsty teens who commit suicide for stupid reasons like that.

Did it make your head want to explode??
Phlegm - September 22, 2006 12:57 AM (GMT)
Remember the Titans, I almost ripped my eyes out and put thme in my ears. Goddamn thats a good movie, but ti can be seen one too many times. (Watching it in relation to the civil rights movement, integration, and all that. Wasnt my choice!)

Oscuro_Sol - September 22, 2006 02:11 AM (GMT)
zomg, Shaun of the Dead has a Queen song.
Uhm, last movie I saw? Spiderman, last night, when I watched it with my dad. Last movie in the theatres I saw was... uhm... Talladega Nights, I think.
ch85us2001 - September 22, 2006 02:26 AM (GMT)
Doesnt that play right before there about to get eaten? :/
Last one I watched was . . . um . . . . wow, been a while since I saw a movie . . . Hills Have Eyes in Theaters, and Days Of Thunder on the tube.

I don't think I made any comments about whether the star(s) were nice people or to be admired. But the movie (aside from any real-life attributes you choose to burden it with) is fantabulous. :P :annoyed:
Chimaera182 - September 22, 2006 10:05 PM (GMT)
I hated Shaun of the Dead. Lame.
Last movie I saw was Meet the Fockers, and that's only because it happened to be on the other day. And before that was The Birdcage.
Dragon Maiden - September 23, 2006 02:50 PM (GMT)
I've seen Talladega Nights. I thought it was pretty good, the only downside of it is everyone in my whole grade quotes it. And, they won't stop. <_< They're football break-off is Shake 'N Bake...
Masa - September 30, 2006 10:17 AM (GMT)
I just watched Once Upon a Time in Mexico.
If that's not a confusing movie then I don't know what is. There's double cross after double cross and then the flashbacks. Aftel all a good action movie and some guitar playing too.
Yukyo - September 30, 2006 03:40 PM (GMT)
Jackass 2, the best 1.30 hours of random discusting stupid and hilarious stunts, a lot of pukeing a lot of bulls, and a lot of pain. :lol: :lol:
Dragon Maiden - October 1, 2006 01:58 PM (GMT)
I just got done watching Girl Interrupted. :shocked:
What an addicting movie! :dazed: I want to buy it so bad now. :embarrassed:
Has anyone else seen it? :???:
Chimaera182 - October 1, 2006 10:28 PM (GMT)
I just saw half of Donnie Darko. That was so.... very... odd... Furthermore, I'm more than a little disturbed that that movie is my ex's favorite. That's... demented...

Hey me too, you should really watch the whole movie though.
Last movie I saw was FEARLESS, and let me tell you it was bad ass. Jet li just beats everyone's ass for a while. It isn't just a fighting movie though. I personally think it is the best movie he has ever done.
Darzog - October 2, 2006 06:28 PM (GMT)
DM, I've seen Girl Interrupted... my wife really enjoyed it.... I thought it was OK but wasn't thoroughly impressed. But then my wife's a therapist so she's into that kind of thing more than I am.
Chim, you really do need to finish watching Donnie Darko. If you only see part of it then yes, it's just plain weird..... it actually starts to make a little more sense once you've watched the whole thing.

I'm sure there's some real stiff competition on that front!! :rolleyes: :D
I watched The Family Stone, completely unbelievable and a little ridiculous! I also saw Friends with Money, it was pretty entertaining and had a nice happy ending!
I like GI--good movie. I have been a big Winona Ryder fan since Heathers, one of my favorites!!
Darzog - October 2, 2006 10:16 PM (GMT)
I don't know Shana, Hero was a pretty decent movie too.
And Heathers was awesome. But when Christian Slater made Pump Up the Volume my parents wouldn't let me see it..... they thought it might make me want to kill myself.
So I told them, "Maybe 'll kill myself because I don't get to see it"....
I don't think they understand the irony to this day.

Well, with Heathers as one of her favorites, I wouldn't say that a nice happy ending is absolutely required. :ROTFLMAO:
