Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Watched Killer Joe and The Birds tonight (random double bill I know). Killer Joe was decent, but it just felt ultimately pointless even though the ending made me laugh out loud. Matthew McConaughey was brilliant in it, but every character was so unlikeable and completely stupid. There were some really good scenes though and some pretty disturbing moments, and the chicken scene was unlike anything I've seen before lol. Enjoyed it while it lasted, but it's nothing I'd watch again.

The Birds was just brilliant. The way Hitchcock builds the characters up before switching things up into the horror genre (like he did with Psycho) is so effective. The hints at the impending bird attacks are great, seeing birds on the water in the background and the single seagull swooping down at Melanie. When the birds finally start attacking, it's pretty terrifying, especially seeing the child on the floor getting attacked relentlessly and pecked in the head. On paper it sounds pretty silly, but the way it's done is really effective and you know it would be a genuinely horrible predicament to be in not being able to do anything about it. The climbing frame scene is really amazing, and really pretty scary, especially with the children singing in the background. There are some amazing iconic scenes and some amazing camera shots, and the scene were the fire starts and the camera shows the town from above with the birds coming into shot and approaching might be one of the best and most effective scenes I've ever seen. I love the mystery surrounding the birds, why are they gathering there and why are they attacking? We get hints as to why but we're never fully in the know. I love endings where we are completely expected to make up what happens next, and that's exactly what this did. The way Hitchcock managed to make BIRDS into terrifying creatures is really quite amazing. Stunning film.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

See Skyfall or die. Casino Royale > Skyfall...by only a little bit. Then ending to Skyfall made me hard, no joke.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I think I might like Skyfall over Casino Royale...even though I haven't seen it yet.

Killing Eva Green really didn't sit well with me.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I didn't really like how Casino Royale drug on and on. I was ready for the movie to be over after the card game, and then there was the bonus torture scene, and then the bonus recovery scene, and then the bonus vacation, and then the action finale, and the not weeping. It felt like they went, "You know, Return of the King got away with like 19 endings, we can do the same!"


Call Kenny Loggins. Cause you're in the Danger Zone.

I thought Casino Royale went by really quickly actually.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Anybody seen Taken? It's pretty good and worth to watch, but some parts are just repeating. He finds someone, kills them, finds someone else, kills them too and that's pretty much the whole movie.

I accept Hayley Williams rep.

I like Casino Royale, but the second time I watched it the card game dragged on and it kind of annoyed me. Didn't mind everything afterwards, juts the card game. I fucking loved the 'Shaken or stirred?'...'Does it look like I give damn!' line though.
