It also has a very strong cast with Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, Lenny Kravitz, Elizabeth Banks providing support to the main cast. The girl who played Rue(dunno her name) was a really cool character
    I finally watched Hunger Game yesterday. The murder scene was more conceptual than visual, and I thought the film was well made considering the majority of viewers are middle and high schoolers. Now that I watched it, I need to rent the Japanese movie, Battle Royale (2000). Has anyone seen both?

    Re: The Movie Thread! - Continuation

    I guess I'll need to check Hunger Games because of the hype. Since the beginning for me it seemed just a watered down version of Battle Roayle.Thought it kinda annoys me, that in the trailers the people don't really look like people who have been living in famine and bad conditions. I thought that was the idea?

    Battle Royale was pretty awesome. I didn't have high expectaions. Just gory well, battle royale. But it was suprsingly neatly working package and cool action flick.

    Agreed. Though I haven't read the books, I'm not sure if the third one belonged in the "trilogy" lol.

    Exactly. The third could have been even better, I liked Andy Garcia's role.

    I don't think it did. I heard that Coppola was planning to use Duvall/Hagen, but Duvall wanted more pay or something.

    I always tend to say The Godfather: Part III sucks balls. That's not really true though. It'd be an okay movie if it didn't follow two of the greatest movies of all time, and a completely unnecessary addition to what was already near perfect. It's not a bad movie in itself, but as a Godfather sequel it was pereeeetty bad..

    Than what it is now. Now, it's shit. But it could have been much better with Duvall and etc, apparently.

    APPARENTLY.

    I watched American Reunion the other day and it was great! However, this is coming from someone who loved the other movies as well. The movie reminded me so much of the first American Pie which was awesome xD

    The Darkest Hour disappointed me. I had high hopes for the movie but it turned out to be the opposite. The story felt lacking and the action scenes weren't exciting.

    I watched City Island recently... It didn't provide any sense of great suspense or excitement, but it was an enjoyable ride with a wacky, eccentric humor behind it all.

    I just watched The Lady. Good movie, especially if you are interested in politics and such. Michelle Yeoh has dazzling performance in this movie (Duh!).

    I'm looking forward to watch the Avengers, even though I'm not a huge fan of Marvel superheroes except Iron Man.

    I'm also excited for the Avengers, though I have two problems with the movie:

    1. No Spider-Man. I get that Sony holds the Spider-Man license, but it ain't no Avengers to me if it Spidey's not in it!
    2. Mark Ruffalo replaced Edward Norton as the Hulk. Nothing against Ruffalo (he's a great actor), but Norton's one of my favourite actors and I enjoyed him a lot as the Hulk. I have no idea why they would replace him.

    Spidey wasn't an original Avenger though, so they have that excuse at least.

    I saw Cabin In The Woods. A pretty intelligent movie and was a driving reason for me to see it. I had my reservations since it was co-written my the guy that wrote Cloverfield, but he redeemed himself with this.

    I also saw Casa De Mi Padre a couple weeks ago. I was hoping that it would be an over-the-top surrealist comedy (like Tim and Eric/Eagleheart), but it really fell short. The joke was that Mexican cinema is cheap. But that joke shouldn't stretch the entirety of the film, but it did. Which is sad, because the premise showed a lot of promise.
