I just got the BluRay edition of The Evil Dead after losing my DVD a long time ago. First time watching it in at least fifteen years. I still like it better than the remake. And the commentary track talking about all they went through making the film was really interesting.

Also saw Star Trek: Into Darkness; It was alright, entertainment-wise, but damn is it the most obnoxiously blatant over-use of the teal-and-orange fad I've seen yet. Their teeth and sclera are BLUE. Shocked That's not okay! Razz

And I just watched Let's Get Harry on satellite. Not a bad film for being directed by Alan Smithee Laughing (Stuart Rosenberg in this case). It's got Robert Duvall, Mark Harmon, Gary Busey and Tom Wilson. Very by-the-numbers, and ridiculous but it kept me entertained.

Safety Not Guaranteed- I am a fan of Mark DuPlass and the wife is a fan of Aubrey Plaza. Really enjoyed this movie because it relied really heavily on dialogue and poignancy, rather than any sort of SFX or action. I'd recommend it.

Completely predictable all the way through...but, still a very fun movie. Very Happy
I really liked the sarcastic, don't-care attitude of Guy Pearce's character.

(I lied when I said 'completely predictable'; I never would have guessed at the ridiculous PS2-level CG effects. Laughing Luckily they aren't used much.)

Decent acting all-around; some good camera work, excluding the following-behind shots of walking that are all really close up and claustrophobic for some reason; cool scenery in Hong Kong; didn't care for the ending. Confused

Princess Diaries. I hadn't watched the movie in a long time, but I actually ended up liking it a lot.

Lost Boys: The Thirst

It is just as ridiculous and cheesy as you'd expect. Although, I was impressed at how good a low budget B-movie can look these days.

Feeding Frenzy from the Red Letter Media guys. If you like their reviews you'll probably like the movie. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Man of Steel. Sad By the time it got to the big, dumb, explode-y, half-hour climax battle, I was fast-forwarding to Zod, watching the scene, then fast-forwarding again. All the time, money and human effort that went into those action scenes were completely wasted.

Adult Children of Divorce, starring Adam Scott. Truly hilarious ensemble movie.

Scarlet Street. Liked the sleaze-ball con-man antagonist. Liked the paintings. Average movie.

Image
To Catch a Thief. Good acting. Funny. Feels weird when the climax to a movie isn't 10+ minutes of explosions. Good movie.

Image
Unbreakable. Heard the 'twist' a long time ago, forgot it. Still called it halfway through the movie. Not bad. Very much like The Sixth Sense, filming/acting-wise.

Watched X-Men: Days of Future Past and Frozen. Both were good. I was impressed by the natural-looking cloth movements in Frozen.

I really want to see that X-Men movie when I get the time. Is it better or worse than First Class?

Personally, I thought it was better. Off the top of my head I can't think of anything I hated in the film. Just little things here and there, nothing that adds up to annoyance or aggravation. I was skeptical when I first saw pictures of the Quicksilver character, but I really liked him in the film. The future-battles were cool looking, flowed well (you could always tell what was happening), and were quite brutal. Blink could have been better. But some shots she looked better in than others.

Anyway, I thought it was well worth seeing while it was still in theaters.

(As an aside, when I saw this, some woman came in just reeking of perfume. Enough to make me nauseous and give me a splitting headache. And I still enjoyed the film. Razz )

I saw Edge of Tomorrow the other day. Really enjoyed it.

No Clue

Written by/starring Brent Butt, of Corner Gas (which is great). A noir-ish detective-comedy, light-hearted, inoffensive, not bad. B+

My one problem with this movie is its marketing. Personally, I think they should have kept the name of the manga the premise is based upon, All You Need is Kill, but it's gone through three different names.

I just watched Coherence, which I think is from 2013. Only actor who I really even could recognize was Nicholas Brennan (?) from Buffy. It was a pretty awesome movie, possibly one of the best I've seen all year, even GotG, and it was shot on a 50,000 dollar budget, making it that much more impressive.

Never heard of it, aeonic, but after looking it up it sounds pretty interesting. I'll have to look out for it.

Watched The Godfather for the first time over the weekend. The fact that I have already borrowed the book from a family member probably means I liked it!

This has to be a crazy coincidence. I just watched the Godfather over the last weekend. The first time I've ever seen it in it's entirety. A truly awesome movie.

Indeed it was! The book has been very interesting so far - the movie really paid attention to detail and even uses the same dialogue. I'd like to see the second and third movies once that's finished up.

The second movie is just as good, the third is an abomination unto God.

Yeah the second one was good. Just saw it over the last weekend. From what I've heard from everybody so far the third one was terrible. I may just have to watch it now because I'm curious to see how bad it really is.

When I first saw it as a pre-teen kid, I didn't mind it too much (besides the casting and the disgusting storyline for Michael's daughter, you'll know it when you see it), but as I got older I realized how bad it was after noticing all the ways they tried to make it similar to the first one.
