This is the thread to discuss new and old movies.

Also if you've seen a new movie feel free to give a review.

Top ten movie lists are also welcome. :cool:

I recently saw The DaVinci Code. Thought it was an interesting movie, was fast paced and entertaining. I had no problem with the religous implications because to me it was a work of fiction.

I liked that movie. I didnt think to much about what might or might not have been true though. Just sat back and enjoyed.

most movies based on a novel are disappoinments.
the books are almost always better.
there was a review of davinci code in the lounge a while ago that ripped it because the thread maker had read the book first.

i read and enjoyed the book so was hesitant to see the movie, but maybe i will give it a try.

i rarely get to see my kind of movie, so if i go, i want it to be good.
last movie i went to was x-men3. had to see it just cause i am a big x-men fan and always try to give them the benefit of the doubt. though the films never really measure up to my expectations.

There are great movies released each year, but they are usually buried by the hype of the'big' releases. The so called blockbusters.

But there usully a handful of good films every year, some are european, or asian. (Korean cinema is incredible...Olboy, and A Tale of Two Sisters are 2 of my favs). Also Ichi the Killer is disturbing but a great film.

Asian cinema is definatly the future.

Wat makes me sick is how hollywood at the moment has taken the easiest, most insulting way to make money out of us, by doing remake after remake.

What about the greatest ever director? Now thats one for you to mull over for a while :D

I'd have to go for Sergio Leone. He created the spaghetti western which included the man with no name trilogy. He directed the western masterpiece that is Once upon a time in america and directed what many people see as the greatest work of art in film, Once upona time in America. He also is rumoured to have had a hand in directing Ben Hur.

Dude, everybody disagrees with me on this; which makes me want to watch it again to see what I didn't get the first time. When I saw it, right after it came out of video, my roomate brought it home. We'd heard the reviews and were both curious. It was a slow night, so instead of going out we decided to watch this movie that the critics loved.

I swear, outside of the woodchipper scene, that was the biggest waste of celluloid ever made....and the best cure for insomnia I've ever seen. Halfway through we were like, "well, we've watched this much of it..."

I was in a bit of a "dark" mode when I first saw it. The woman I was with at the time and I fit right into that whole "mystical thing" ranging from vampire to wizards to the occult and such...which probaby got me into that movie. But, I'd always had a thing for that "area of thought" and that was the best portrayl of Dracula I'd ever seen...no offense to Bela Lugosi.

Have u seen 'MARTIN'? Its a controversial vampire film. (or are u just a poser!;) )

Its about a boy (Martin), who drugs women, rapes them and then slits their wrists and drinks their blood.
Set in the present day.

His uncle believes hes a vampire...blah blah blah.

Its good. Eventhough i made it sound crap. :(

I thought "Interview with a Vampire" was outstanding; but didn't care of "Queen of the Damned"...thought that one was so cheesey you could make a nacho dip out of it. Blade was good II and III....ehhhh. Underworld was alright. Wes Craven's Vampire killers was good from what I remember. Christopher Lee made a great Dracula in those old Hammer films; but I ramble. :D

there have been very few good Vampire movies.

My personal favorite is 1979's "Dracula" with Frank Langella as the count.

I also enjoyed Nosfuratu w/ Klaus Kinski

I have that. But wasnt impressed by it.

Need to give it another go.

I dont rate Bella Legosi (sp?) Dracula, always find it boring.
I think Hammer's first Dracula, and Dracula is Risen are good.

Other unusal vampire films that i would recommend:

The Hunger (starring David Bowie and Susan Sarandon)
The Thirst (really freaky old Australian i think)
The Addiction (excellent cameo from Walken, great film)
Nadia (about Draculas daughter, with Peter Fonda hunting her)

I know and it really pisses me off sometimes. I have missed out on most of the classics being released because of my age and now i get all this ****e. The only director who sees movies as they truly are nowadays is shyamalan, and his inspiration is usual suspects

Shyamalan is great. The Village wasn't as good as expected, but Signs, Unbreakable and The 6th Sense are classics. I did not enjoy 6th sense much, but it is his biggest work to date. Signs is my favorite of the bunch. Signs was Mel Gibson's biggest grossing movie EVER until The Passion came out. That's a pretty big deal when you think about all the movies he's been in. Lady in the Water, Shyamalan's next film, has gotten some great initial reviews from JoBlo.com and other sites. Supposedly it could be his best work yet.

As for Spielberg, I think if you see Munich you'll be convinced that ol Steve is just as good as ever. But Steve has a pretty damn big past to live up to. Munich, War of the Worlds, and Minority Report show that he is still a big timer imo.

I havent been to the actual "movies" in a long ass time. I think I may break that tradition and go see the new Superman this weekend. I know its not out yet so no one has a reveiw, but from what I have read about it on the net it sounds like its pretty good.

I went to Superman Returns today with my 6-year old. I thought the movie was unremarkable but set up the new franchise well. The cinematography/special effects completely ruled the film, and for awhile there's so much going on, the plot takes a backseat. I'm also not a fan of Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane.

That being said, the addition to the storyline from the old series will be interesting to see how it plays out. The new kid playing Superman is good and so was Parker Posey as Luthor's girlfriend. Kevin Spacey damn near stole the movie just as Jack Nicholson did Batman and Al Pacino did Dick Tracy.

I gave the movie a 6/10 - my all-things-super-hero-loving son didn't care for much of it, though, and there's a shortage of action for 2 hours and 34 minutes. This isn't as bad as Daredevil or Catwoman but it's far behind the Spider-Man movies and the first Batman film...

Usually a trailer for a film, especially a special fx movie, looks really good, but the new Superman trailer doesnt look like much.

I still havent seen Spiderman 2. But i saw a preview of the 3rd film, and it looks pretty good. Kinda dark and moody.

I liked the first Spiderman except for the goblin. Maybe one of the worst supervillian portrayals ever. Not that it was Defoe's fault, the characyter was just crap.

the movie was abit long, but well worth watching. I thought Kevin Spacey did a nice turn as Lex Luthor. Nobody will ever camp it up as well as the great Gene Hackman, but Spacey was fine. The guy who played SM was outstanding. As was the case with the first franchise, I'm sure #2 will be far superior. They had to take time to set up the characters in this one.

Kenny Fisher: Yo, I gotta have sex tonight! I mean peep this - They say here ninety-two percent of the honeys at UCLA are sexually active. Ninety-two of the women in Los Angeles at UCLA walking around going, "Class... or sex? What shall I do?" Ninety-two percent, yo! Hey, you know what that means?

Described as part improv and part written comedy, the show follows fictionalized versions of themselves living together as total opposites -- Feldman a domesticated suburbanite and Haim a wild and crazy bachelor.

There arw loads of films i gotta see.
All those oscar nominated ones, the gay cowboy film and Capote, plus Munich.
Im downloading Superman, ive heard its both good and crap.

But il probably watch it wen i wake up 2mro.
Nothing quite like watching a fun action film in bed in the morning.

I enjoyed Pirates 2, kept me entertained throughout. I loved the action/adventure of it. Johnny Depp did a wonderful job once again as Jack Sparrow. He brings a lot of comedy to the film. Also after seeing how bad the cgi was in Superman Returns, it was refreshing to see the scenes in this movie. They were very well done. My only gripe was probably the length of the film, although it was fast paced, it went by slow. Im not sure why because Superman Returns was the same length and seemed to fly by. I didnt really enjoy Returns either.

IMO Superman Returns was boring. Both Clark Kent and Superman lack any personality at all. The story was weak and the action was worse. The cgi was awful, especially when you see him carrying a certain something. I just couldnt get into it. Then again I dont see myself ever getting into a superman movie. I just cant think past the fact that someone can take their glasses off and no one would recognize them.

I saw Transamerica tonight - nominated for best song and best actress. I wasn't impressed initially - it was the typical "thrown together road trip drama" story against the TS backdrop, but the movie had some good moments.

I imagine the subject matter encountered in the film would be troubling for a number of folks on this forum, though...
