[QUOTE=jaybuz;34512835][URL="http://imdb.com/title/tt1698010/"]TT3D: Closer to the Edge (2011)[/URL] - [B]10/10[/B] It's more of a Documentary than a film but the cinematography and sound is excellent. You don't have to be into bikes to enjoy it. The TT races are crazy![/QUOTE] Did you hear about that on Radio 1 too? Sounds awesome. I really really want to see Martha Marcy May Marlene but can't find a single cinema in Glasgow or Edinburgh showing it this weekend. Annoying.
[QUOTE=FoodStuffs;34517183]watched alien 8/10 while it captured that setting perfectly (and ships like that are my favorite horror scenarios. it's what made dead space 1 better than 2 for me) it seemed a little too hasty for my taste (the ending and the picking off one by one thing mostly), i like my horror movies to crawl. watching aliens now. also i've got the quadrilogy box set so i'm watching the special versions with cut scenes. [editline]2nd February 2012[/editline] also the lighting in the end just before she gets to the ship when the giant fan illuminates and shadows her face was insanely fucking awesome. it was so artificial, if i wasn't so tired at the time i would have played dead space.[/QUOTE] lmao alien was too HASTY for you?? good lord
[QUOTE=Scot;34518080]Did you hear about that on Radio 1 too? Sounds awesome.[/QUOTE] No. I saw a trailer for it months ago. It only just came out on Blu-Ray. [url]http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi2274204953/[/url]
Kill Bill 7.5/10
2001: A Space Odyssey - 7/10 I thought it was alright, I didn't think it was spectacular, and it didn't change my life. I thought the effects were really good for a movie made back in 1968, but as for a lot of the other stuff: -The music was alright, wasn't good, wasn't bad, it was alright. -I got tired of looking at those fucking monkeys within the first two minutes, let alone the other 15 minutes. -wtf happened at the end -Sequences in the movie are long as fuck. Honestly, I don't think we need to watch a ship docking to a station for eight minutes before something actually happens. -[sp]So Dave just ditched that other guy and let him drift in space? Wow Dave, nice job.[/sp] -People give this too much credit by calling it Kubrick's "best" movie. Come on now. Well those are my cons. Now for some pros: -Very artsy, a lot of the stuff was pretty to look at, and really well put together for a movie as aged as it is. -[sp]I actually kinda felt bad for HAL when Dave was killing his memory. I never thought I would have had that kind of emotion towards a homicidal machine. What really did it was when HAL kept saying he "was scared" and when he started to sing "Daisy".[/sp] -Pretty relaxing -Ending leaves you thinking. Overall, I don't think the movie is the best Kubrick movie ever made. Not by a long shot. Full Metal Jacket, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, etc. have the essential needs that make a movie a [i]movie[/i], and I'm not saying 2001 isn't a movie, I'm just saying it's missing a lot of key elements. There's my 5 cents.

i don't want dead space the movie. by itself it's really good, don't need a movie. it's probably better by itself as a video game. really when i watch movies like this i just end up playing games like it. and apparently event horizon kinda sucks. [QUOTE=Itachi_Crow;34518241]lmao alien was too HASTY for you?? good lord[/QUOTE] no, i meant to say towards the end. it really sort of went into overdrive and pulled a sunshine [sp]everyone who's left dies fast and emptily[/sp] the beginning is incredible, i'm talking about the last 30 maybe 15 minutes. the movie could have been longer. i'm watching aliens right now and it's actually kind of better so far.

The Artist: 9/10 holy shit [editline]2nd February 2012[/editline] that dream sequence was weird as shit
Have any of you seen The Descendants? I only saw about 1/4 of it (towards the ending) and it was [I]really[/I] good. I'd give it at least an 8 from what I saw.

Alien is one of the slowest paced horrors ive ever seen and you say it was too hasty? is your brain still broken?
god damn it read the other posts i'm referring to the ending
Cowboy Bebop: The Movie (2001) - 9.5/10 Simply put, if you liked the series you'll love the movie. It's really cool to see the characters again, the budget was upped a bit, the soundtrack is absolutely fantastic and there's even some fancy CGI effects (for the time)
Chronicle 8/10
Drive 9/10.
Moon 8/10 Some really clever camera tricks in this one. Also it manages to avoid so many tropes and twists that anybody would see coming which is something I love to see.
[QUOTE=FoodStuffs;34523151]god damn it read the other posts i'm referring to the ending[/QUOTE] still wrong
Terminator - 7/10 Terminator 2 - 10/10 Oh God. Manly tears were shed.
i know now why u cry. but it is something i can never do
[QUOTE=FoodStuffs;34517475] stop failing and being a dick .[/QUOTE] Lol what? Will watch The Seventh Seal.

I watched Terminator 2 but I didn't feel emotional at all. I can't take Arnold seriously.

There's my 5 cents.[/QUOTE] Watch it again in a few weeks or months, you'll get it more the second time, I'd say. But after I watched it even the first time I didn't particularly like it right away, but over the course of the next day or couple days and weeks things just kept coming into my head, the genius of everything just started to click, things began to make sense and it became amazing for the second watch. But I agree it's not his best film, A Clockwork Orange is probably my favourite. Murder By Numbers- 7.5/10 (2002) Saw this was on tv last night and was interested in it since Ryan Gosling was in it because I've heard he's fantastic in Drive (Which I'm yet to see) and it was a good film. Wasn't a whole lot more but Ryan Gosling was really good in it. It follows two rich kids who kill a woman to see if they could get away with it basically (they're both smart and one of them is a genius with forensics and stuff, and they set it all up so they don't get caught) and a police duo assigned to catching the killer. It goes between following the teens and the cops throughout the film, and makes you feel sympathy for both teams, so you're not sure who you'd rather win. It's pretty interesting and worth a watch.
I just finished watching [URL="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1182345/"]Moon[/URL]. It was one of the best sci-fi movies I have watched in a long time. 9.5/10
Not sure if this counts as a "movie" but we just watched Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog and were caught completely off-guard by the tearjerker ending. Damn. 9/10 Also watched Super Troopers before that. 10/10
Just saw The Machinist 9/10 oh man i love when christian bale shouts

American Psycho 8/10. Acting by Bale was incredible. The fact that Bale's character also served as a narrator in the movie, was very well executed.
