Last Movie You Saw/How Was It

Postby Ghost » Sun Oct 22, 2006 7:39 pm

Theater, rented, saw it on television, had two homeless men play it out; whatever.

House of Wax - House of Fucking Predictable rubbish. Hated it. Why do I keep watching horror movies on HBO? I hate horror.

Just Like Heaven - Liked it well enough because I'm gay for romantic comedy, but Mark Ruffalo can do better than this.

Marie Antoinette - Loved it, but I can hardly get enough "Lost in Translation" so your Coppola mileage may vary. Don't expect a historical epic, my friend nailed it when she said, "They were just like, heres the story and some music. Enjoy." And I fucking did.

Note on Jason S: His Louis XVI was hilarious in his crippling fear of intimacy.

Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle: Surprisingly fucking hilarious. I avoided this movie like the plague upon release and only gave it a chance based on Ghost's opinion. I was not disappointed.

Napoleon Dynamite: this movie proves that retards aren't always funny. It had some smiles in it, but no real laughs. Well, maybe one or two. Overall, pass.

Blue Velvet: I wanted to see what all you fucks were raving about, and all I have to say is, were you fucking messing with me? Yeah, the pictures were pretty, Dennis Hopper was fucking scary, but the cheeseball dialogue was laughable. Maybe it was supposed to be cheesy and I missed the point.

Flags of our Fathers - So-so. Some great war scenes, some good dramatic scenes in America, but arranged in a totally awkward, annoying way.

The remake of The Omen. It was about what you'd expect I guess, maybe a little better. Nice modernization of a classic horror flick. though the Catholic Church just doesn't carry the same weight for me these days.

I did the same with Harold and Kumar, but that shite was hilarious. I also knew that you'd love the completely accurate police sketches at the end.

Peeped some horror today in honor of Halloween on Cinemax or Starz or something. This was all thanks to my coming home at lunch.

Meat Loaf: To Hell and Back - Subpar bio flick. Left out a lot of stuff.

Frankenstein Unbound - Wacky as hell but a neat movie. It's not often you get time travel, historical figures, literary figures, and their creations all in one movie with a talking time travel space car.

Screamers - I actually liked this, but it was hardcore in the predictability department. The female Screamer was a hottie, though. Spoiler. PS2 rendered CGI at the end was a real treat.

Currently watching Wolf. rubbish so far.

Ol' Jacko should be ashamed of himself for that fuck awful deer killing scene. Do deer even make noises, let alone squeals? I guess the poorly superimposed animated bats directly afterward were supposed to make up for it.

Wolf sucks.

I was enjoying that movie until they just started throwing in every twist they could think of, near the end.

I saw Babel. They should've called this movie Crash 2: Cruise Control. It's the same fucking unbelievably contrived, let's smash the audience in the face with a 'message' mallet that we saw last year with Crash. I fully expect this movie to win a lot of Oscars.

On the positive side, the movie looked great, was well-acted, had a good soundtrack, but the plot had me rolling my eyes so much that I started getting dizzy 2/3 of the way through.

KSC will probably love this movie, it's filled with probably every Hollywood cliché you can think of to make people 'feel,' and I know how he loves movies that make him feel.

Prime - Uneventful but not overall bad. Just kind of blah.

My Best Friend Is a Vampire - Still fucking awful. I hate this movie and I hate the kid that stars in it.

X3: The Last "Snad" - Not as groin grabbingly awful as I was led to believe by the internets and friends, but certainly not groin grabbingly great either.

Wet Hot American Summer.

great cast, funny as rubbish, homoerotica, tons of over-acting and overthetop jokes, but i felt the pacing was a little slow. maybe if i watch it with the "fart track" it will keep things moving.

I'm kinda embarrassed about this one...

The Santa Clause 3 - It was nice to see Martin Short being silly in a film again. The movie is pretty much what you would expect from the series. It's an entertaining family film, and a nice way to get ready for the holidays. I don't expect anyone here to watch it though. Hell, I didn't expect myself to watch it.

I laughed at the commercial for it.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang - Pretty great and it had some of the best lines I've heard in a film in a while. See it if you ain't, Val Kilmer and Bob Downey Jr are both excellent in it.

Ooh, yes, that is good. Would have been better with Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in the leads though.

But not a movie already starring Danny Glover, wherein the main characters have "gone fishin'". Gibson just wouldn't have been right in the Pesci roll.

Return to “The Stage.”
