Post Movie Chatroom
We have a music discussion and a lounge, why not a movie chatroom? I'm nearly as big a movie buff as I am a musician with the only difference being that I can't play movies.

To kick things off I wanna talk about Scandinavian films. I don't think I've ever seen one I didn't like. I bring it up because I just finished watching a movie called "Sound of Noise."


It was really good and I would recommend it to anybody who wants to see an artsy music movie. Great soundtrack too.


Also saw a chinese movie called "let the bullets fly" twas really funny. Like, one of the best comedies I've seen in a long time.

Oooh, thanks for reminding me of Let The Bullets Fly! I remember seeing the trailer for it before it was out and wanting to see it, but then just kinda forgot about it. Gonna check it out soon, it looked like fun indeed. Don't know many Scandinavian films, though Max Manus was good.

I'd never seen Braveheart before so I decided to take the time to watch that last Friday. What a truly epic movie, in scale and scenery particularly, it really was beautiful and nicely medieval looking.

Also, has anyone seen Elysium in theatres? Didn't get the chance myself, but I'm really anticipating it's general release since it looks amazing. Seen some mixed to average scores for it but I'll be alright if it's better than Oblivion I guess.

yeah I saw elysium. it's worth watching but it just isn't as good as d9. It's hard to make a movie like District Nine and have that be your first, then make another one in the same general genre. It was good by any other standard, but it doesn't really compare to his previous movie.

Let the Bullets Fly isn't all that well represented by the trailer though. Speaking of Scandinavian movies Let the Bullets Fly kind of had a bit of that ole Scandi dark humor. It actually slightly reminded me of In China They Eat Dogs, which you also should see. It's goddamn hilarious.

Watched Iron Man 3, didn't like it for reasons I can't discuss without massive spoilers. The villain did that thing I hate, where his motivation came down to "because I'm evil," flying in the face of good sense. I'm gonna talk about it in the spoiler tag, so if you intend to watch the movie you probably shouldn't read it.

Keep in mind it wasn't a bad movie, I just didn't like it as much as the first two.

I like Sandra Bullock. :???:

Anyways Elysium was not bad, the way people gibbed actually reminded me of Cortex Command a lot. I don't know of D9 had the same kind of gibbing but it's something I really appreciated in Elysium. Obviously the writing wasn't outstanding and the political message was kinda aggressive but overall it was a fun movie.

The last movies I saw in theater were Thor 2 and Ender's Game. I didn't have high expectations going into either (though I was hopeful about Ender's Game) and I was still disappointed.

Elysium was dumb. The robots were dumb, the plot was dumb, the augmentations on the main char and main antagonist were dumb, everything was dumb.

I didn't like blade runner as much as I should. The whole premise is great, and for it's age, the movie looks great. But there's quite a bit wrong with it.

Pacific rim. So dumb. So good.

Pacific Rim is great. It seems like recently, a lot action movies have been trying to be intellectual and/or moody, and I find it just tends to fall flat. Don't get me wrong; I think both types of movies are important, but a lot of the recent attempts have been really ham-fisted. You just end up with a mediocre action movie as well as a mediocre "thoughtful" movie. Pacific Rim just admitted right from the outset that it was basically a B movie with a budget. I went in expecting to see huge robots punching huge rubbery monsters, and I got exactly that.
