Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

To what i know, Tarantino has said he's not interested in another Kill Bill, but the producers want to do the movie anyway so probably will have another director, if the film is do it

Yes, i know i'm part of the minority but it's a bit of an habit

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I respect your opinion asdf even if I don't agree with it all the time. I liked your stance on how movies don't need a script and some other things you've posted here. I probably won't agree it's Tarantino's best, but i'll view it with an open mind.

It is very suspenseful and entertaining if you can stomach the occational gory scenes. It's clear that everyone involved had fun doing this, and couldn't help but smile at Tony Todd and Mark Hamill's quirky performances (Mark almost channels his Joker character at times)
Yeah I'm not expecting much. If it's half as fun and entertaining as Hobo with a Shotgun, I'll dig it. It's got a lot of B actors that I like.

Old Luke Skywalker and Candyman? Yeah I'm in.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I'd say it's about on par with HWAS, but that's probably due to my ridiculous bias toward everything Rutger Hauer. He could've starred in Battlefield Earth and I probably would've liked it lol

Sushi Girl has a Grindhouse feel but isn't AS Grindhouse as HWAS. It'll definitely make turn your head if you're the squeamish type

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Saw Warrior again last night. Angle was a badass in that. Great film and good fights during the second half.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Rewatched Drive in a Festival here.

seems like a great concept failed at his realisation.

Lot of problems. First, one of the main issues on the movie is the violence, but i never can understand what is the stand of the film in that, at first it seems that you take a modern approach about it showing everything but don't focusing in it, Then the movie began to show the murders out of the frame whitout a reason. Most of the characters are violent but you never have a take, not even an aproach (the better scenario will be that they are violent because they wanted to be this way) about what makes them violent or his stands on violence.

Secondly the movie is to cheesy for moments, Gosling is trying to be this socially inept at the begining but then fall in love and transform himself in stereotipical man in love number 400, so the way to resolve his social problems is falling in love and living the life of a father?. The call at the end is the epitome of this, and the scene in the elevator is almost funny at how bad it is, why the slow motion? why the kiss? specially considering the previous scene. I will not even adress the fact that The main character still lives at the end and his social problems are thrown by the road

Finally, the style. At the begining the movie seems one of this road movies from the 60/70's, and is all good, the film tries to be realistic (take for example the sobriety of the first car chase) and progresively began to lost itself on more fantastic territory, but in the end tries to be realistic again and the style used didn't match this. Take the elevetor scene again. there is a crash between the style and the conservative way in wich the film advance.

Some good things, the first 40 or so minutes are great, all in the movie begins to decline when the father of the child appear, the Kavinsky track and the title credits are great, that is what the movie could has been.

Edit: Also, Brooks and his overacting take me out of the movie, is almost painful

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Drive is awesome, end of.

Watched Silver Linings Playbook last night. It was an awesome flick. Great acting from both Cooper, Lawrence, De Niro and pretty much everyone else. It's one of my favourite rom coms. It made me laugh quite a bit and love fact that it felt very real. The director did an amazing job with the soundtrack and camera work. I thought it was well done. It was predictable at times, yes. But that's the only downfall to the movie.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I liked Death Proof. I can see why people don't like it. The first half is very wordy (but my favorite part) and the second half just randomly turns action packed after all that slow build.

Planet Terror is a lot better tho. But its not a fair contest, PT had Michael Fucking Biehn in it.
