Saw Funny Games U.S. today, after having watched the original one a while back and thought it was equally as good, because of the higher production value this time.

I can't believe some peoples reactions to this film though: (from imdb)

Quote from: trac283
i agree this movie was soooo pointless and i think i i ever saw those two actors i would bitchslap them just because i was duped into watching this *beep* and for the director of this pos movie.try making something plausable for once i swear i'll pay double just to see it. that dad was a joke! the mom just as dumb,the only saving grace was rewinded????? are you f'ing kidding me!. please tell me all is not lost when junk made for dumb 15 year old girls to scream to.
you know the scene that starts it of as he's being a *beep* jerk about asking for eggs over and over the dad should have grabbed the clubs and at least attempted something if not at least to show some plausability. but no he turns his back to a kid he just candyassed slapped. and btw killing a kid in a movie just to shock us wow how original. for naomi to star in this omg she must be broke or something. at least quinton Quentin Tarantino would of had the dad go and kill those two pos retards with his nine iron and a soldering iron. for shame hollywood.

Quote from:  SweetOOgaBOOga
I love Naomi. She's a great actress, but what the hell was she thinking with this piece of trash??

If the "tubby" kid had been blown through the wall this would have worked out better. I absolutely hated Micheal Pitt, what a WANKER.

That ending and the looking at the camera was crap.

All that bloody trouble and nothing to show for it. They even kill the friggen innocent boy first? WTF?

If you are thinking of seeing this DON'T waste your 5 bucks.

Trust me.

I actually liked Sanjuro better than Yojimbo.

I saw Rashomon a long time ago but this has gotten me going and I'll be looking to work my way through his library.

what's a good one to start with?

Well as for these two, Sanjuro is the "sequel" to Yojimbo.  And as with Magnificent Seven being a remake of Seven Samurai, the Clint Eastwood man with no name series is loosley based on Yojimbo and Sanjuro.  I just like the humor and swordfights in Sanjuro a bit more.

My favorite Kusosawa movie though is Stray Dog.  The Bad Sleep Well is really good too.  Both deal with post war Japan.

One of my favorites, its a mind fuck of a movie, and Nicholas cage acts good in this one, sometimes he's just plain terrible.

for me it was the first will smith movie that i was able too enjoy. i cringed a bit when he "fresh princed" out on his dog for not eating his vegitibles but i really appreciated that he took a more serious approach too this role and resisted the temptation to play the watered down ebonics, cool guy card.

movie was sick

I loved it until the moment it became a Bob Marley movie.  You have to read the comic book , it truly is 100000000 times better.

Here's a present for everyone:  A DVDrip of The Dark Knight, got it today, and I'm stoked!

the bob marley stuff was weak but i felt it was filling the space left by the typical "welcome to earth" bullshit so for me with such low expectations, it didn't bother me too much. but the whole thing they were trying to do with over lapping movie themes with marleys songs was pretty silly and weak. also there seemed to be a lot of filler which given a weak artistic undertone felt especially unnecessary other than extending the running time. and then the unanswered questions that didn't add contemplative value too the film like "who trapped him and why did the zombie with the dogs let him escape and how did that bitch give all those zombies the beat down." but obviously it wasn't meant to be a tight package and the target audience was a little below that level of scrutiny so i felt it worked for what it was and part of it's appeal was not being too ambitious and just presenting a simple story in a visually interesting world with some really well done zombie vampires.

Definitely agree there, always down for watching that movie when the opportunity arises. So solid.

I just watched The Royal Tenenbaums for the first time in years. I don't know how much I liked it, but it is the 3rd Wes Anderson movie I've watched in the past 2 days so I think I'll have to wait and rewatch it a little more distanced.

As long as you are talking about the original.

Forgot to add that Shaun of the Dead is one of the best comedies. The scene in the bar with Queen playing is so fucking funny and well done.
