    Discovered Mystery Train by J.Jarmusch tonight, damn I loved it. And then I remembered Coffee and Cigarettes, Dead Man, Ghost Dog, Broken Flowers, Night on Earth ; all thoroughly enjoyed and loved.

    Re: The Movie Thread! - Continuation

    I god damn love Jim Jarmusch. He has the ability of making me want to keep watching movies with no meaning whatsoever. Coffee and cigarettes and Down By Law are two of my favorites, and Dead Man, Broken Flowers, Ghost Dog and Mystery Train are awesome as well. Hell, I even liked The Limits of Control, which I've never heard anyone say anything good about, pretty much.

    Spoiler:  BAFTA Winners List show


    Ok, I've not seen The Artist so my opinion is biased but I feel like Martin Scorsese really should've won a best director's award for Hugo, but well. Jean Dujardin sure is picking them up now huh? went from a relatively known french comedian to worldwide star. Apparently there were lots of reservations regarding Meryl Streep's protrayal in The Iron Lady(despite it being said to be the role she was born to play) and people felt it was lacking but she's laughing all the way home with her winner's trophy.

    Shiieet~ Artist seems great and nothing against it (and going to see it when it finally hits the cinemas here), but I hope the Oscars won't be that one-sided or it'll be boring. It seems to catch all the trophies. Now my expectations could get too high and when I finally see it, it will dissapoint.

    Though, on the other hand, I thought the same about King's Speech last year, and still the film impressed me greatly after all the hype and awards.

    I saw Chronicle. The movie was pretty good, but the story could have to so much better, if maybe the budget has been bigger. There was so much opportunity with the premise, but the characters just didn't appreciate how powerful they were. A better story would be the characters rise to power, but utilizing their powers.

    Watched Tower Heist and The Thee Musketeers recently. Both were average. I cannot see I was entertained thoroughly.

    I saw Drive and it was pretty damn cool. It's kind of slow-paced and needed more chase scenes, but it was a great movie nonetheless.

    Oh crap, I forgot to post here after seeing Drive. Anyways, because I'm lazy here's some quotes from my thread of a convo with thorn about it.

I enjoyed Ryan Gosling's distant, calm and motionless character in the beginning. Then, he started to show more emotions - more like fluctuations in his personality. The pace of the story was decent as well.

Beautifully shot, amazing soundtrack. Gosling had so few lines in the movie, but it goes unnoticed, a lot like Steve McQueen. You could see the transformation of him from an almost catatonic person, into a man bubbling with bellicosity, but even then he was so calm throughout. A truly unique performance. It felt like a Western, even the way he moved reminded me of a gunslinger in a Western movie. Not sure I've ever seen a balance between serenity and gore like that...warmness and rage the way Gosling was. Albert Brooks was great in it too, I've never seen him play a villain. It's an action movie that isn't an action movie
    Quote Originally Posted by thornofcarrion View Post

    . It was a surprise transformation just like Gosling.

    You are gonna try The Ides of March . The name came up many times like Drive but I ignored it. After seeing Drive, I am going to watch this one too.

    So yeah, nothing really to add, other than I need to see Ides of March as well

    I just watched Hanna. I was thinking it was going to be another stereotypical "chick with above normal fighting skills" movie, but the story was better. I think it made compelling that Hanna is young and a fish out of water while exploring her surroundings. It's not just an action movie, it's about Hanna's experiences on her journey. There are some plot elements that I didn't care for though,

    Yesterday I watched Slumdog Millionaire the first time.
    It's a pretty good film, I especially love the music in it. The movie derserved his oscars but it's not one of my favorite films

    I think it was deserving, but it had its flaws. It just got dragged a bit.

    But Three Idiots, OMG that movie dragged MUCH.

    Re: The Movie Thread! - Continuation

    Last 2 weeks I've seen The Grey, The Woman in Black, Chronicles and Man on a Ledge. They were all movies I enjoyed, but the best would have to be Chronicles; really loved the story development and action sequences in it. Man on a Ledge was very predictable from the get go but it was still a good watch and in the end I was surprised how much I liked it. Nothing in the film hadn't been done before, just bits of recycled movies but well put together.

    The Woman in Black was quite jumpy throughout and despite my hatred of Daniel Radcliffe(), it proved to be a solid film and the ending was very enjoyable for me. The Grey....well just two words; Liam Neeson The movie, because of it's setting almost seems like a documentary to me which made it stand out, plus the characters and their little background stories are very well put together and the wolves! It's a must see for any movie fans; that and Chronicles.

    I would like to recommend Rustler's Rhapsody to anyone who enjoys westerns and comedies. It is kind of an obscure film and not too many know about it. But it is hilarious. The idea: what if a 50's style painted cowboy was put into a modern western? The laws of movie physics seem to apply only to Rex; like the bad guys' bullets never hit him and he always hits what he aims at.

    I watched Hugo and The Adventures of Tintin. I find The Adventures of Tintin decent but that is all. On the other hand, Hugo was a real nice movie. Great cinematography. Really touching plot, with Ben Kingsley & Sacha Baron Cohen, you can expect some entertaining moments.

    I totally agree... Best man vs nature struggle/film which has been served for a while. If you expect a lot of action, fights, etc then I advise you not watching it.

    I couldn't describe it better than goldb. The psychological, introspective survival in this movie is really great. The setting was nice and the story is kept quite easy and solid because this kind of concept doesn't need an overflow of meaningless story writing. Love the movie too
    The biggest virtue is to support these Seven Deadly Sins in their fight!!!
