Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

Equilibrium (2002)



In a futuristic world, A totalitarian regime forces people to suppress their emotions with the help of daily doses of drugs. If you show any feelings you die. Cleric John Preston whose in charge of finding and destroying the offenders, starts questioning if he's on the right side.


I was a little worried about this movie, since it's written and directed by Kurt Wimmer who did the absolute garbage movie known as Ultraviolet. But a friend highly recommended it so I gave it a try and I'm glad I did. Firstly, this movie combines many elements from films such as Fahrenheit 451, 1984, the matrix etc. And some could go as far as call it a ripoff, but whatever. They said the same shit about The Matrix and I still loved that movie, so don't let that bother you. The action sequences are sick, very stylish and entertaining. Christian Bale is the ultimate badass in this. Good acting, solid story, good music, great action, and lots of fun. If you like movies about Dystopian societies such as, the aforementioned Matrix, Dark city, V for Vedetta, Logan's Run, Children of Men etc, you'll definitely find some enjoyment from this.

8.5/10

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

Ghost- I thought I would watch a Patrick Swayze film, in honor of what he has been going through lately. This film is about a man named Sam, who has died but has not yet left in spirit. He wants to protect his girlfriend from oncoming danger, and uses the help of Whoopi Goldberg to get what he needs. I think Swayze and Goldberg are a pretty damn funny pair, they go great together. Its a pretty good film, I think it is worth a watch for all.

7/10

Doomsday- a film about a team of people who try to prevent a disaster that can affect the future of the human race. The film stars Rhona Mitra. If you watch the trailers for the film and then watch the movie you will get what you expect. Good action, good car scenes, and deliverance is not too shabby. I was a bit thrown off by the whole punks ravaging the city thing, but eh all movies can't be perfect. Could have been better, but it is satisfying enough.

6/10

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

10,000 BC

Too Lazy to write a summary so from wikipedia....

This is a sweeping odyssey into a mythical age of prophesies and gods, when spirits rule the land and mighty mammoths shake the earth. In a remote mountain tribe, the young hunter, D'Leh (Steven Strait), has found his heart's passion--the beautiful Evolet (Camilla Belle). When a band of mysterious warlords raid his village and kidnap Evolet, D'Leh is forced to lead a small group of hunters to pursue the warlords to the end of the world to save her. Driven by destiny, the unlikely band of warriors must battle saber-tooth tigers and prehistoric predators and, at their heroic journey's end, they uncover a Lost Civilization. Their ultimate fate lies in an empire beyond imagination, where great pyramids reach into the skies. Here they will take their stand against a powerful god who has brutally enslaved their people.

It was ok but slow to get going and had way too much story than action, which is the whole reason I went to see it. I would rate it a 6.5/10. Don't go out of your way to see it but if somebody else wants to see it, don't be discouraged.

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

I was watching The National Geographic Channel the other day and there was a program on about the Columbine school shootings. It was a terrible tragedy and left a lot of people asking "How could anyone do something like this"? A question that can never really be answered, because there really isn't an answer.

Well, after watching the show I jumped on the net and was looking at Wikipedia's article on the tragedy. In the article, I came across a couple of movies that have been made based on the event. One being "Zero Day", an independent film released in 2003 and directed by Ben Coccio. After a little research, I actually discovered this movie was on Google video in it's entirety, so I watched this film the other day and here is a little review of it.



Zero Day:

"Zero Day" is shot completely with hand-held camera's (the budget was only $20,000) and is shown from Andre and Cal's (the killers) point of view. Andre and Cal come across as relatively normal teenagers, with a horrific secret. They're planning a massive school shooting that will take place on "Zero Day"(a date that is undetermined at the beginning, but becomes clearer as the movie goes on). The movie is a series of videos that chronical the events leading up to the assault on their school. They go back and forth showing them with family and friends and showing them preparing for the attack. To avoid being caught, they set up a safety deposit box at the bank to keep the tapes from being discovered until after their plan is complete. The ending is shown from the school's security cameras point of view, and then from other students point of view several days after the attack. This really works well and adds to the realism.

For such a low budget film, this was very well done. The acting was stellar and frighteningly realistic, especially coming from two unknowns, Andre Kreuck and Calvin Robertson, they did an outstanding job. At some points you feel like you're watching something that actually happened. The scariest part of the movie is how much you find yourself relating to the characters. They're surprisingly likable, to the point where you want to somehow talk them out of going through with their plan. You know how it's going to end, but you can't help but hope for a different outcome.

This was a great movie. It kept me interested the entire time and was brilliantly acted. I recommend you head over to Google video and check it out, however the ending is pretty realistic, so beware

This movie isn't for everyone, especially those that don't like hand-held camera movies like "Blair Witch" and "Cloverfield".

I give "Zero Day" 3 out of 4 stars
Starring: Andre Kreuck and Calvin Robertson
Running Time: 92 Mins.

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

^ Great first post and welcome to the forum

I know the Columbine tragedy too well, it's all people talked about around here for months...Sad day it was when it happened

I saw a foreign movie a little while ago about the whole bullying/school shooting subject that was really good. It's Called Klass. A lot better than Gus Van Sant's Elephant Imo.

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

The Green Mile was pretty good. It had a simple story line which i liked but it wasnt a dumb ass movie with shit loads of explotions either. My only problem was that it went way to long.

Shaun of the Dead - A romantic comedy. With Zombies

Shaun of the Dead is a British zombie-themed romantic comedy written and directed by the 'Spaced' duo of Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg. The less said about the story, the better. You just need to see it for yourself. If you're open to a bit of gore and can appreciate British comedy, you'll probably love this. It's one of my favorite movies to come out in the past five years. That and Hot Fuzz.

8/10

If you think that's long, don't watch the original cut of 'Once Upon a Time in America'.

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

Nosferatu (1922)




Classic silent movie derived from Bram Stokers Dracula. Real Estate agent Hutter is tasked with traveling to Transylvania to discuss a new home for Count Orlok.


One of the movies I always wanted to see but never got around to it. Gone is the suave debonair Dracula and in it's place is one of the single most recognizable figures in horror movie history, Count Orlok, whose played masterfully by Max Schreck. While is it to be expected that by modern horror standards the scare factor is a little timid, the atmosphere and certainly a few scenes here and there more than make up for it. It's actually a pretty straight forward story that keeps a nice pace and never bores. The star though by far is Schreck, his nightmarish face, long claw-like hands, pale white skin, even his slow eerie walk were just creepy as hell. It really is a sight to see. This is one of those movies you should at least check out once in your life.

7.5/10

that movie is a classic. i can't imagine how frightening that movie would have been back in the early 1900's in the theatre.

if you enjoyed Nosferatu, you should check out Shadow of the Vampire with John Malkovich and Willem Dafoe (also the masterful Cary Elwes is in it). it's about the filming of the movie and the difficulties of shooting it because the star of the film...just might be a real vampire .
