Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Dredd sucks, both versions. Couldn't even finish that shit. Looked like a direct to video from the first scene on.

Lawrence is quickly becoming one of my favorite new actresses, alongside Chastain. Playbook was great. Lawrence, Cooper and DeNiro all nailed it perfectly.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Jennifer Lawrence is already the best young actress around as far as I'm concerned.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Wow, didn't realize there was this many people on the Forum that didn't think Drive was the greatest thing since sliced Bread. Thought I was the only one. heh.


Just watched The Chinese Connection with Bruce Lee. Makes me miss the guy so much, he raised the bar so ridiculously high that it forever crippled the Martial Arts genre

I disagree (obviously, since I love the movie). In fact I thought it was a triumph from start to finish. I saw your post about it, and that's fair enough because you give good arguments as to why you disliked it.

It wasn't compelling. It wasn't fascinating. It wasn't enthralling. I'm totally ok for movies to have loose narratives and have images drive the action and be slow builds, but this one just doesn't work at all.
New World is definitely my least favourite Malick film, but I still liked it for the most part. I got invested in the story once Bale's character turned up, but not so much before that. Still, amazing visuals and cinematography all the way through. Can't remember any editing problems with it, but I haven't watched it for ages.

Talking of editing, something that did have really bad editing that nobody else seemed to mention was Looper. It was really bad on occasions to the point it took me out of a few scenes. Movie is really overrated as a whole anyway.

I haven't seen Looper, but I thought it looked really good. Should I lower my expectations?

I thought Looper was awesome.

Depends on what type of movie watcher you are though.

Well I'm a huge movie buff, but Looper wasn't showing anywhere near where I live. It looks superb, but I've tried to not read anything about it - I like going into movies blind.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

A movie buff as in less popular movies or a lot of movie theater movies?

If you're more of a movie theater movie guy, you should like it.
