Now THAT is one of my favorite movies... A classic, indeed.Doctor Zhivago
Classic big-budget love story, set in the period of the Russian Revolution. The scenes of the snow, the ice, the trains......wonderful. The massacre of the marchers on the street.....horrifying. A great movie. (With a young and beautiful Julie Christie. )
I love the dialogue between Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint. If it were anyone besides Grant, it'd seem flat out corny.North By Northwest
Might be Hitchcock's best movie. Classic story of mistaken identity, with some of the most-famous scenes ever created. The final scenes on Mount Rushmore are tops.
Yes, it's hard to say a myth is "historically accurate". A friend even said the movie was an accurate representation of Robin's beginnings!!! :-c However, I think the era was well portrayed. Arrows in the neck, cavalry charges, flaming arrows, chain mail, castle layouts, etc were done well. It's like Braveheart in a way - tell the story of a man, and move historical dates around in the story so that the movie audience is well entertained.Re Robin,
New Yorker's Anthony Lane says historical "facts" are much in dispute, even the 'Hood's very existence.
Yup....I did it....I admit it......not enough comedy in the world.....not enough time for me to forgive myself for spending full fare to see MacGruber in the theater8-!:not: Much like an accident scene you drive by with massive amounts of gore visible....It's okay. I really enjoyed Hot Tub Time Machine.
So...anybody going to see MacGruber in the theater?
I would also recommend to all, but don't bother with the 3D version, it added nothing to it. I loved the adventure story that it starts out with, and would watch a full movie of scenes like that taken from a kid's imagination and adaption of various toys.As many facebookers here may know- i saw Toy Story 3 on Friday- taking the parents and the teenage sister. Awesome movie- would recommend to all. Starts off slow- but gets pretty funny. It was touching at the end- so expect a tear or two (ok i bauled my eyes- but i cry at the drop of a hat in movies)/
I loved that movie, too. I think it's time to see it again. Other movies in that same vein include "Being John Malkovich," "Adaptation," and "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" - all written by Charlie Kaufman. I am definitely a fan.Rented "Synecdoche, New York" over the weekend.
WOW. It was one of those movies that I hardly understood at all while it was happening, then was able to piece together in my mind only at the end and after laying in bed thinking about it for a few hours. So many layers. So many analogies. Brilliant.
WARNING: Do not see if you don't like movies that make you have to work to understand them. If you do like those types of movies, the payoff is very rewarding if you see this one.
<clears throat loudly> I think someone forgets a certain movie classic called COBRA with the highest body count EVER! Chuck Norris, Charles Bronson and Clint Eastwood all kill with surgical precision and with purpose. Rambo has a long history dedicated to the "body count."(clears throat)
A bike-in tattoo parlor with a knife throwing board and mercenary regulars?
A tinpot third-world dictatorship where everyone in the military has the fighting skills of a MMA champion?
Come on ...
Now, Clint Eastwood, Charles Bronson, and Chuck Norris ... THAT would have been the perfect action movie cast. Imagine the body count with those three on the screen.
Is it dark last the last two? I have enjoyed them much more since they became more adult movie than children's movies. Dark and deep with just a touch of kiddiness.Saw Harry Potter last week. Thought it was decent. It didn't feel like a 2 1/2 hr. movie. Definitely a set up for the final segment. Two thumbs up.
The Royal Tenenbaums was good, are you a fan of Wes Anderson? Fantastic Mr. Fox is probably my all time favorite movie at this point. I'm not sure what to make of The Life Aquatic though, that movie was just plain weird, but in a somewhat fascinating way.Just saw Amelie. I'm not sure why, because usually I'm not too big into foreign films or "love stories", but this is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. Maybe it was the frame of mind I was in when I saw it, but I loved this movie.
In a weird way it reminded me of one of my other all time favorite movies, The Royal Tenebaums.
Amelie is one of my favorite movies. It doesn't hurt that Audrey Tautou is a hottie!Just saw Amelie.

is that the girl? Or the guy? I agree the girl is a little hottie:-$Amelie is one of my favorite movies. It doesn't hurt that Audrey Tautou is a hottie!
Havent seen Mr. Fox but I do enjoy Wes Anderson movies. Have you ever seen bottle rocket? That's another great one.The Royal Tenenbaums was good, are you a fan of Wes Anderson?

It is a pretty good sci-fi movie. Mindf...ck is a pretty good way to describe it. The scenes with is wife were pretty good. It added to the surrealness of it, almost Dali-esque. I'd recommend d it to other Cyburbs.Finally got around to Inception over the weekend. Mindf..ck is the best way to describe it, but in a good way.
Very cool and actually genuinely nerve-wracking during the climax, which lasted 6 seconds, 3 minutes, or 20 minutes depending on your point of view.
