Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol

Leave it to a Pixar oscar winning director to make probably the best Mission Impossible movie. I still have a soft spot for the first one just because how batshit crazy it gets with all the betrayal, plus Jean Reno is in it. However this one is really good, worth a watch.



Aliens

I still prefer the Ridley Scott one, no denying that this one is awesome. I just liked the emptiness of the first ship and not knowing what the fuck was going on. This one was Terminator 2 in space. Getting hyped for Prometheus

I just started introduycing my wife to the Alien movies.  We watched the first one last night.  She already knew about the chest burster with John Hurt, but she was totally surprised by the facehugger and Ash being a cyborg.  It's really cool watching these with someone who has never seen them and doesn't know much about them.  She's a big sci-fi fan and wanted to be properly equipped for Prometheus.

Awesome. I still squirm when watching any facehugger scene. The chest burster doesn't bother me much but the spider-like movement and look of the facehugger just kills me

How can a monster that has a vagina for a mouth and spiderlike fingers for legs NOT be scary as fuck?

EDIT: Oh yeah, it also face fucks you and gets you preggers with a fucking ALIEN!

You might be right since I didn't see the whole thing.

I took a Cultural Geography class last semester and my prof had our class watch Alien and relate it post colonial theory. It was a pretty interesting way to watch the movie, I must say. But the funny part was that before we watched it, my prof was like "ya, so were gonna watch Alien, it's this cheesy sci-fi movie from the late 70's that was made during the end of the Vietnam war." Then she'd say other stuff like "the make-up and special effects are really cheesy too". A bunch of people in my class hadn't seen it and took every word my prof said completely seriously. We watched it with the lights off, and let's just say, people were losing there shit. One girl walked out with tears in her eyes. As a film nerd, this was an insanely satisfying moment for me. The fact that a movie made more than 30 years ago could still have that kind of effect on people is a genuine accomplishment. My hat is forever off to to Ridley Scott and H.R. Gieger. *Cue Prometheus stoke comment*

HAHAHAHA!

And @dude- I bet that was an awesome experience.  I would have loved to have seen that.  Was that intentional on your teacher's part?

Haha that was the part that made my head spin: my prof actually thought that the "horror" aspects of the film wouldn't translate well to our generation or something. Needless to say, she was dead wrong. But I'm glad she did it. Every time she downplayed the film's special effects and what not, I kept thinking to myself, these sons of bitches have no idea what's coming their way. And the tears flowed...

its been long enough since the last time i saw this that i dont remember the majority of it. i hope that johnny depp and tim burton dont try to remake it as they go through the archives and fucking ruin it, making it weird and colorful.

Loved it. Wish more movies would take their time like that film did. It makes the more sparse action scene so much more tense.



The Proposition

Really, really enjoyed it. If you liked Drive, you'll probably like this movie - another good one that takes its time and really builds the tension.

Western set in Australia in the late 1800's, with one of the best soundtracks I've heard in a while. The scenery alone is breathtaking.

It's on Comcast streampix if you have it.

^Shouldn't have such a negative rep with movie recommendations like that.

The Proposition is solid as hell. You summed it up

Watching this now

All too predictable; As soon as there's a serious Latin American movie you can be damn sure it ends melodramatically, but it was a good watch nonetheless.

Watching this now



How'd you like it? I've never actually watched a Gaspar Noe movie. I hear about what a trip that movie is, but I'm hesitant going in knowing how much he just likes deliberately making audiences uncomfortable.

Finally went to see The Avengers. I wasn't sure if I wanted to watch it in 3D, but since I don't have a 3D tv, it could've been the only time I could watch it that way so I did. And yeah, it was kinda distracting in 3D. Overall good movie, story was okay, I expected a bit more action, but the last action scene was really sick choreography-wise. And even though his was the most awful movie coming up to this one, the Hulk was a real star in this one. Tom Hiddleston also does a fine job portraying the bad guy and I also see the resemblance to Michael Fassbender. Will definitely watch it again when it comes out

You forgot to mention that it was written by none other than Nick Cave.

I gotta say it's probably one of my favorite movies that I've watched in quite some time.  Pedro Almodovar definitely put his own stamp on the horror genre because this wasn't like anything I've watched in recent memory;  He had said in an interview that he wanted to do his own take on Frankenstein and the film has a little bit of that influence but rather than a mad scientist it's a man surgeon/modern times + medicine.  Everything is done right in here tone, music, and acting is superb.  It's cool to Antonio Banderas in something good again because it feels like it's been a minute.  I didn't read to much about the film when it was originally coming out either which is good because it would have ruined some of the surprises throughout.

playing catch up on some movies i meant to see.  this was a really well done thriller that takes a fairly unconventional approach to an old genre.  the two young actors in it are amazing




inspiring, thought-provoking film, even if it had too many Jack Johnson and Modest Mouse songs in it.

Feel like it's about the 15th time this movie has been made, but Denzel is always good.

 You and the D00D have turned this thread into a horrible head-on-collision between a short bus full of retarded kids and a van full of paraplegics.
