Last movie I watched was the new Planet of the Apes. It was all right.

Lucy. It was certainly...something, alright. I think how much you like the movie depends on how willing you are to accept the craziness/silliness of it all.

Transcendence. Glad I didn't watch it in the theatre =P

I honestly can't remember the last movie I watched. I watch a lot of shows regularly on Netflix and the like, but not a lot of movies.

I did watch 'The Road' a couple of weeks ago, although I don't think it was the most recent film. It was a major bore. Post-apocalyptic survival movie starring Vigo Mortensson and Charlize Theron. I was waiting for something to happen, but it never did and I ended up turning it off about 3/4 of the way thru.

I'm inclined to agree.

@korvus I watched that movie a couple of days ago as well. Did you like it?

#11 Posted by Korvus (3899 posts) -

@deeliman: I thought the premise was really good but they fumbled badly with the execution.

But here's the dealbreaker: How much of ScarJo did we get to see?

#17 Posted by SaintLeonidas (26342 posts) -

At home: "The X-Files" (1998) which was a good addition to the show but I have a very hard time thinking anyone who didn't watch the series could actually enjoy it.

At the theater: "Lucy" which is one of the smartest dumb ridiculous over the top visually stunning stupid mind trip LSD ludicrous WTF awesome blockbusters in a while...yeah.

Are you talking screen time or...skin time?

Skin time.

She spends most of the movie either in a bra, a white T shirt with a black bra underneath or a really tight dress. Though if it is ScarJo skin time you want I recommend 'Under the Skin'.

Last movie I saw was Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets about a week ago. I had the Bluray. I haven't seen a movie in the theatre in probably 2 years.

New Planet of the Apes film.

Really enjoyed it.

#24 Edited by Master_Live (14812 posts) -

Theater: Dawn of the Planet of Apes 6/10

Home: August: Osage County 7/10

@Master_Live: That apes score..hurts me. Why so low?

#26 Edited by LoG-Sacrament (20397 posts) -

I re-watched Amadeus for the zillionth time. Yep, still awesome.

The last move I saw for the first time was Get Low. Meh. Robert Duvall and Bill Murray give great performances in a bad movie. The early parts were promising and I wanted to get to know Duvall's character, but by the end I kinda wished I didn't.

Open Grave.. has Sharlto Copley in it.. it was decent

#28 Posted by thehig1 (2241 posts) -

Just got back from Hercules, it was pretty bad. The action was good and "The Rock" was a very good casting choice to play Hercules.

The film however had little story, and lacked a worthy villain or any real adversaries for Hercules to challenge. The films story glossed over the challenges the Gods set for Hercules and made him a mercenary who gets caught up in a human war. It seems like a petty battle compared to legend of Hercules talked about in the movie itself and seen on other Hercules media.

The movie felt like a quick cash in film, thought process was "Hey The Rock is pretty big lets make him Hercules,."

5/10 - Movie was entertaining enough because the action and fight scenes were done quite well

What's with all the Hercules movies with WWE wrestlers this year?

First the Rock, now Hercules Reborn with "John Morrison"...what the hell?

WWE stars are huge(literally) Hercules is a fitting role, "The Rock" was perfectly cast hes a mammoth of a man. Not seen that other Hercules on with "John Morrison" probably wont it looks really bad.

I think typically WWE stars are bad actors, apart from "The Rock" as proven himself to be pretty good.

Thank you for giving me another reason to bump Under the Skin up on my watch list.

And your description of Lucy was perfect tbh. I might have to steal that for future use. Everyone I was with while watching it absolutely hated it though.

Full Metal Jacket.

Next time I go to the store, I think I'm going to buy one whole season of some cable show. Don't know which one yet though.

Addicted to Love, I just happened apon it on tv and ended up watching the whole thing. Not really my type of film genre but it was quite good.

Literally just watched a movie like a couple hours ago anyway Evangelion 1.11 You are (Not) Alone

I have been going through alot of Anime and just animated movies lately I also recently watched Wolf Childern, Ghost in the Shell Solid State Society, Princess Mononoke and The Lego Movie all were really great.

Just watched Nicolas cage's "Joe." What a piece of crap. Does Hollywood have anything good to offer at all?

I would give it a 7.5 just because I love Liam Neeson.

Yesterday:

  • Marianne (1929) - Marion Davies' first talkie! Pretty decent sound for such an active cast.
  • Shoulder Arms (1918) - Fairly routine stuff, but it has Charlie's half-brother Syd in it so that's a bonus.
  • The Patience Stone (2012) - Really enjoyed this film.
  • One Silver Dollar (1965) - Decent but unspectacular spaghetti Western as it's before the genre really developed a personality, but it stars Giuliano Gemma and he's always great.

Oldboy (2003). First time seeing it. Movie was pretty fucked up but it was still a solid 9/10 to me...

#48 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16745 posts) -

Me and my girl just watched Man of Steel yesterday and it was pretty good. A hell of a lot better than Superman Returns, that's for sure. Like it enough to know I want to own it.

#49 Posted by SaintLeonidas (26342 posts) -

'Particle Fever', which was sexy as hell.

#50 Posted by KHAndAnime (13876 posts) -

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. It was okay - not much more than your typical Hollywood spectacle. Well done and entertaining but lacks depth.

Instead of movies lately, I've been watching Hannibal (Tv Show). It's great.
