Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Watched The Hunger Games and I was quite disappointed. Based on reviews I thought it would be a really good movie but it was very average imo.

Also watched Lockout which was laughably bad. Only reason I watched it was because of Guy Pearce and he couldn't save that garbage script.

Edit: Narc is an awesome movie. I need to watch that again sometime.

Layer Cake was really good. Reason Craig got to be Bond (I remember reading this, can't verify). Not that I'm a huge Daniel Craig fan or anything

Die Hard 5. Thank you for posting, forgotten it had come out. I love 4. for me it goes 1 > 4 > 2 > 3, opposite of most people's, but that's ok.

He was in Martha Marcy May Marlene and Contagion last year. The Sessions is out this month. Very small movie, but he's got a solid shot at a Best Actor nod.

Yes, Broccoli family, who owns production company Eon and does all 007 flicks, has said Layer Cake was what made them pick Daniel Craig. And I am a Craig mark.

May the odds be ever in your favor...

Because I call first dibs on this.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Watched Cosmopolis just now. Has anyone else seen this? I really don't know what to make of it. I like the idea of the movie, just don't think Cronenberg was able to pull it off properly.

Is this why the one bond film Never say Never again (by WB) isn't counted in the full list of Bond films?

After the press screening of it, after a few days of trying to wrap my head around it, I gave up.

Yeah I think I would have to read the book to make any sense of most of the movie.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

The new Lincoln trailer makes the movie look even better. I am still irked that Spielberg's name is all over this. I kind of want it to fail just to spite him.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Have a weird feeling Lincoln could end up like J Edgar. Trailer looked epic but it ended up not being up to much. Hope not though, because the subject of the movie and Day Lewis deserve it to be great. Just don't know if Spielberg was the man to do it. I can still see it being far to down your throat, and Spielberg hasn't made a 'great' film for years imo. Maybe even since Schindler's List (maybe not, haven't seen Munich and Private Ryan was good until the final scenes and that just killed the entire movie for me).

I thought Munich was great and have it in my top 5 favorite movies but it seems like it's hit or miss with alot of other people who've seen it.
