I just watched 'The Garden of Torment' (1976) by Christian Gion and 'The Ninth Heart' (1979) by Juraj Herz.
H. H. Holmes: America's First Serial Killer.Pretty dissapointing docu.That basically avoided mentioning the details of his killings until the end and only giving vague references.
Witchfinder General.I forgot i already watched this one.
The Bourne Identity.Am i the only one who thinks the chicks in this movie are kinda ugly.Specially the german chick.
The birds was playing earlier this week. I totally forgot where that movie had an abrupt, or maybe unusual ending for current standards. Still a decent movie. Love the shots and the location where they shot. Adds a ton of character and a bit of creepiness to it.
Xfiles: I Want To Believe - Usually when a popular TV show goes to the big screen, they mess it up. Or it may be good but just totally not resemble the source material.
In this case, it's an almost perfect translation feeling exactly like the show, but more expansive and still accessible for folk who casually watch.
It kind of has a big payoff at the end, while not really changing anything of the status quo of the show going forward.
Like this a lot more than the second movie. Good to watch between S4- 5+
Extraction.I was kinda shocked to see a movie like this nowadays.Besides that it was pretty good.
Fukushima 50.Man i don't know how much they changed from the real story of Fukushima but holy crap.It was pretty damn close to turn into a huge catastrophe for Japan.Tho there is one thing i'm kinda curios.I don't know if it's only a Japanese culture thing or it happens all over the world but it was sad that they were more willing to sacrifice the old Men.I kinda get it.Maybe it's cause it's about the old Men taking the blame for what happened and giving the young people the chance to not make the same mistake their ancestors did?
Chick Fight, it was really dumb but Dulcé Sloan and Fortune Feimster were funny, but especially Kevin Nash and Alec Mapa. Alec Baldwin didn't get to shine that much in this one.
The fight scenes were not exciting and obscured so you didn't see many of the hits, plus a lot of camera shake to cover for it. Training montage wasn't great either. Plot was braindead.
Watched Tommorow War yesterday. It was so bad i stopped watching it less than half way. Chris Pratt is such a crappy actor and the writing in this thing felt like it was done by an 16yo. So i decided to watch No Sudden Move instead, and it was pretty decent, a solid 7/10.
Waching The Hitmans Wife Bodyguard as i am writing this, and its awesome. The first one was so bad i stopped watching around half way, but the writing and acting is so much better in this one. Probably the best movie ive seen this year.
I first/last watched this in December 2016 and was going to watch the Special Edition some times later to see what the differences are, but I waited too long, and now I can't remember what was different about the theatrical. Except that ending. The theatrical ending sure was less forced and overly optimistic about its peace message and the aliens. But I don't think the theatrical ending is great either. It still is those things, only less so. It's a good movie. But not one of Cameron's best.
I watched the open-matte version by Bluebird. It was fine. There weren't scenes in which removing the 2.4:1 black bars added dead space. Overall, nice compositions in 16:9. This will be what I keep after Cameron's years and years of not taking any time to approve new masters of The Abyss, True Lies and The Terminator. It's not great looking. It has some color banding and compression artifacts. But the alternative is a non-anamorphic DVD, and chances of an official Blu-ray release are even slimmer now that it is owned by Disney. Even when Avatar 2 production was stalled because of the virus the fucker couldn't take one day to approve those masters. I have no idea where Bluebird got this. Maybe foreign cable TV, like with that True Lies HD bootleg, or some streaming service somewhere, judging by the compression issues. Little of that in this screenshot, though. Posting it for the composition.
Some scenes are definitely bluer than others now. Color timing could be better. Still, that DVD is far crappier on a big TV.
Felt terrible even with John Cena added to the cast as Jakob Toretto(Dom's brother). I just didn't like how the movie jumped to the past to the present throughout the movie. John Cena is hardly in this movie though I did like the fight scenes been him and Vin Diesel. 6/10.
Haven't posted in this thread in ages. Don't watch much TV these days, and the whole COVID thing means I haven't been down to the DVD shop either.
But yesterday as I was waiting for my 4-hour daily mandatory away time to end so I can go back to playing more Total War: Warhammer II, I caught a terrible movie on TV called Line of Duty. It's like a buddy cop movie if instead of a partner you have an annoying teenage girl livestreaming everything with a selfie stick.
The writing is so atrocious I spent half the movie trying not to cringe so hard my face collapses into a gravitational singularity. The special effects gives away that this thing was made on a budget - and most of it was probably spent on getting Aaron Eckhart and Giancarlo Esposito. The plot is dull and predictable.
Still, it ended exactly 5 minutes after my mandatory away time did, so at least it didn't overstay its welcome.
Captain Fantastic.So this is how modern hippies live...i would have probably agreed with a lot of their philosophy but Man they sure gave this vibe of know it all that turned me off.
Paths of Glory.Great movie.
Transformer(2007).Pretty good movie.
Death Wish(2018).Man what a huge pile of shit.This movie should have been renamed how not to offend black people 101.Besides that Man Bruce Willis looked pretty fucking old and fragile.He looked ridiculous as this wannabe assasin.The hoodie didn't help at all.There is just no comparison with Charles Bronson from the original that actually looked like a mean mother fucker.While Bruce Willis looked like a strong wind would bring him down.
Kong Skull Island, Godzilla King of Monsters and Godzilla vs Kong, enjoyed the hell outta all three. Skull Island is probably my favorite out of the three though.
Cool World, deal lord this movie is a trainwreck and dumpster fire all in one. It's Rodger Rabbit if that movie only had 1/10 the budget and talent behind it. This might be Brad Pitt's worst role and acting, and the animation is rarely as good as a generic cheaply made 90s cartoon. 3/10
Night of the Living Dead.Rewatch.
Dawn of the Dead.Rewatch too.I was kinda undecided about watching this version or the 2004 one but i just realized i like this version much better.Because it has a more serious tone.While the 2004 one it's a more cartoony version.
