Shooter 6/10
[QUOTE=dirty harry;34694395]I've heard that from a friend who saw in the theatre too, I reckon a lot must have been lost in transferring it to film.[/QUOTE] for one thing the theatre is so small and compact which gives you extreme immersion. nothing like it.
"re-watchability" doesn't really define how good a movie is the big lebowski is a good movie to watch again and again, but a movie like the hangover is only funny the first time
[QUOTE=Zukriuchen;34694676]"re-watchability" doesn't really define how good a movie is the big lebowski is a good movie to watch again and again, but a movie like the hangover is only funny the first time[/QUOTE] This is what i mean though, i would rate a movie higher if i can re-watch it and feel the same tension, humour or fear that i did when i first watched it. When i re-watch alien for example I find it even scarier than the first time because of the build-up, and the inevitable end, the only thing ruined is that i know who survives. As far as the hangover goes, i felt the jokes where well executed but cheap, meaning that they where formulated in such a way that when you rewatch it, the humour value is lost because all the jokes where "oh shit, when did i do X" and you already know what x is and how so the joke is ruined. I can rewatch airplane however because the jokes are timeless, and they dont get unfunny after the first watch, in fact I am always "this is the good bit!" and the line dont call me shirley. However, i did call the motional side of viewing more subjective, You may feel re-watch-ability is not so important, But in my opinion it is, which is why i rate accordingly on that part. Emotion is so hard to gage from person to person as we are all individually so unique.

[QUOTE=Zukriuchen;34694676]"re-watchability" doesn't really define how good a movie is the big lebowski is a good movie to watch again and again, but a movie like the hangover is only funny the first time[/QUOTE] the "Dr Faggot" joke is possibly the worst, most cringe-worthy comedic experience I've ever had.
[B]J. Edgar[/B] 8/10 dicaprio rocked this one. excellent film.
[QUOTE=Zeraxify;34695438][B]J. Edgar[/B] 8/10 dicaprio rocked this one. excellent film.[/QUOTE] I plan on seeing that tonight. Cheers.
[B]Hobo with a Shotgun[/B] 7.5: Good for shits and giggles, but obviously not a piece of cinema mastery. Watched it with Machete, which I think I enjoyed more.
I hated machete. Hobo with a shotgun was so much better
What's Your Number - 6.5/10. Anna Faris is freakin' sexy as hell and still really funny. Chris Evans is funny too.
whats your number is the most insulting, by the numbers, disgusting piece of schlock ever
You're entitled to your opinion. I thought it was alright, nothing to pay 11 bucks for in theaters though. I got it for free from Redbox.

What I meant is, the reason why The Hangover is funny (FOR SOME PEOPLE), is that almost everything is based on surprise. [sp]oh hey, I'm just here hanging around trying to find out what happened last night- oh no, a tiger! <-part where you should laugh[/sp], that's what makes it "funny". If you watch it again, you definitely won't feel the same way. A movie like Forrest Gump gives the same feeling [sp](oh wow, it was him that created the smiley face)[/sp], but the whole joke isn't based on that, it's why it's still funny if you watch it again. It's pretty much what Mixed sources said, the jokes were cheap. However, I don't think that this makes a movie bad (ok, maybe it does in this case), just different.
[B]3:10 to Yuma[/B] - 8/10 I enjoyed most of the film but it was fairly predictable and other than the main bloke and the guy they were escorting most of the characters are pretty two dimensional.

The Hangover wasn't awful, but it wasn't good and it definately doesn't deserve the attention it got.
[QUOTE=AK'z;34696142]The tiger wasn't funny at all. Don't tell me when I should laugh at mediocre comedy.[/QUOTE] lol that was sarcasm [editline]14th February 2012[/editline] (see "funny" in quotation marks)
[QUOTE=Zukriuchen;34696185]lol that was sarcasm [editline]14th February 2012[/editline] (see "funny" in quotation marks)[/QUOTE] Yeah but it's not a movie "for some people", it's plain mediocre comedy.
well I was just hoping you'd get my example instead of discussing something unrelated
Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star- 0/10 I was dragged into seeing this. I'm calling the police.
Haha, it wasn't the worst movie. You gotta like Nick Swardson.
[QUOTE=jbthekid;34697879]Haha, it wasn't the worst movie. You gotta like Nick Swardson.[/QUOTE] No.
[QUOTE=TheFilmSlacker;34697893]No.[/QUOTE] Yes. I meant you gotta be a fan of Nick Swardson to enjoy the movie the least bit, otherwise you'd hate it.
[QUOTE=jbthekid;34697879]You gotta like Nick Swardson.[/QUOTE] Let me quote... well, you. [QUOTE=jbthekid;34695963]You're entitled to your opinion.[/QUOTE]
Read my last post. I cleared it up. Jesus.
[QUOTE=jbthekid;34697942]Read my last post. I cleared it up. Jesus.[/QUOTE] How interesting that that wasn't there when I made the post.
We posted at the same time. You were ninja'd. I edited it the second I realized I wasn't being clear about it. Anyone seen Tower Heist?
[QUOTE=Rusty100;34695797]I hated machete. Hobo with a shotgun was so much better[/QUOTE] I get where you're coming from for sure, but I just like Danny Trejo a bunch, and I don't know, I guess a bit of me could just be thinking that because I watched them together. I need to watch Hobo by itself. Watching the Black Book tonight, some foreign film idk, will post thoughts later.

Okay thanks. I'll check it out.
