Post subject:  "Movies"

everyone post what movies you have recently seen, cause then us lazy computer programmers can maybe get of our asses and go do something (haha, you know what i mean?)

it wasn't as good as old school, and i haven't seen road trip, but the best things were of course, the females. i must say 95% of all the females in the film were hot. also, the grown harriet the spy (remember that movie?) is in it and she's also hot. so just sit back in your seat at the movie theatre with your coat across your lap, and enjoy the hotness.

lost in translation:
this is a pretty cool movie, its funny some times, but i would consider it an "art" movie. i can't describe it, but many maybe able to see themselves in it, from some things ive heard on compsci. its boring in some parts, but the best part is when the japanese hotel owner sends a prostitute up to bill murray's room and she can't "fake act" very good, its pretty funny.

go see some movies and get off your asses (my parents force me), and revel in my acts of post count gainage (id say bits, but we don't get bits).

Hmm this was a VERY good movie. I loved it, Ive seen it a few times already

I recently saw "Better Luck Tomorrow", only because of this scene:

Girl: This is pretty nice, so what are you guys?
Typical Chinese Guy: We're are a club
Girl: Oh, you mean like a math club?

sums stereotyping in three lines.

other than that, it was a crappy movie.

i think everyone should see "bowling for columbine", only because they feature windosr. yes, i couldn't believe it, but the guy actually went to windsor to interview people about gun laws and stuff. he also went to sarnia and asked the sherriff. but the fact that they even interviewed a cop on the riverfront proves it.

i think that was pretty damn cool, considering how it was such a famous movie and everything.

well i saw the last samurai, and seriously that is one of my favourite movies now. i came out of the movie theatre with way more respect for japanese history, culture, and tradition. its amazing how disciplined they were. the bravery the samurai must have shown when committing the suicide demanded of them in the code or whatever.

oh ya, and the japanese woman was really beautiful too, so thats an added bonus.

Well, instead of starting another topic, I'll just use this one. Maybe from now on this can be the thread in which we post anything about movies...
Anyhow, which movie should I go see?
- The stepford Wives
- The Terminal

Its totally my choice... and the reason seems to be the fact that Im paying... and Im not really good with decisions...
but yahoo ratings gives the Terminal a B+ while the SWs a C+

One of my favourite movies is called Haggard. If any of you are fans of cky/jackass you'll know who ryan dunn is, the movie is a story about part of his life where he gets dumped by his girlfriend, and then bam and brandon try to cheer him up. What makes the movie so unique is the people behind it. they are all crazy so their movie is also crazy.

Bowling for Columbine was one of my favourite films, because I'm sick of seeing movies which are filled with product placements and other corporate bs. Micheal Moore is one of the few people with enough courage to stand up to the film industry and do something different. He is far from being an idiot.

Post subject: 

Well Michael Moore tells us what we want to hear and secretly have believed all along. He's definitely a spin doctor. I wouldn't say his stuff is a balanced of things. Definitely leaning towards propaganda. I dislike it because
a) You add a humourous bent to things and people remember your point because it was funny. They don't think about whether or not it has merit.
b) You show them something incongruous to what they've normally seen and add something that is true, and suddenly they're convinced. Wyrd Sisters, anyone?

Anyways, I liked Bowling for Columbine. I sort of dislike Michael Moore though, because he doesn't seem genuine.

Author:  Dan [ Fri Jun 25, 2004 4:30 pm ]
Post subject: 

He seems prity genuine to me, all the times he has been on t.v. he has keeped to his belfies that he shows in his docuemotrys. I see no reason to think he is not genuine, i just dont think some one whould go to the effort if they where not. It is alot easer to make movies and docmeuntys that are not polticly charged. For example his latested documenotry also never saw the light of day b/c it was so agested the bush goverment.

Some movies I've seen lately.

Farenheit 9/11. I didn't think that this movie was very amazing. Bush is our savior. Hah, yeah right. But still, Michael Moore bent facts quite a bit in this movie to the point where I wasn't sure if the stuff that I didn't already know about was true either. It abused people's emotions too much, instead of throwing fact after fact like in Bowling for Columbine. The other thing is that Bowling for Columbine seemed to be more universal and therefor relevant to me. I can't do anything about American politics.

Equilibrium. This movie is godly. The Matrix meets 1984. Gun kata. Need I say more?

Yes. I'd say: "It's like 1984 except the end doesn't suck ass! And like the matrix would've been if they stopped with the original good movie."

I've only ever seen the end part, and that was without any sound. But it was that cool. Kapow! Bang! Schwiiiing! Fwooosh! Splortch! Yep, I did the sound effects myself to compensate.

Author:  naoki [ Sun Jun 27, 2004 7:32 pm ]
Post subject: 

Gun kata's look ugly on screen. When he took those two handguns and started beating on the guys, all I could think of was why they weren't reacting. If a guy is hitting me hard enough, I'm pretty sure I'd reel backwards to protect myself. On the other hand, if his blow isn't hard enough to do that, I'll just take my gun out and blast him, or deliver a blow myself.

Secondly, 1984's ending serves a purpose, Equilibrium gives you what you want. It's the ending that everybody who knows about dystopic literature and movies is waiting for: a hero to end the suffering. Because of this, the director neglects to create a tangible plot himself to explain how this cleric can do all this by himself. I watched the whole movie just to see how the hell could Cleric kill all those men himself (besides being called the best sweeper, which is more like calling Neji the #1 rookie; meaningless).

Only cool part was when he fought off the leader dude and they were dodging each other's gunshots. The rest of the film looked like ass

but i still love ya mazer 8)

Author:  Dauntless [ Sun Jun 27, 2004 9:47 pm ]
Post subject: 

Gun katas are implausible. Eat it up, anime freaks.

Anyways, what I didn't get is why they didn't have a bunch of clerics protecting him...instead of grunts. The beginning was good, with the strobe-light gunfight in the dark. The end? Not so satisfying. Compared to the Matrix where it builds up starting from where Neo gets plugged in, to the part where he blasts his way through a hallway of SWAT, up to the part where he stops the bullets and kills Smith... Equilibrium just couldn't compare. It was a stop and start movie; you thought he was finally gonna take it all the way, and then he stops fighting. For example...when he meets those first few renegades , when he switches the pistols, he kills that squad of sweepers with the pistol butts...he stops fighting when his partner shows up. Then in the interrogation room, he starts...and stops. I liked the part with the swords, naturally.

Equilibrium, out of 10? 7/10. Good atmosphere, some good scenes, but too stuttery. They could've played up the loss of feelings thing better than they did, rather than focusing so much on gun fights that were more or less the same.

You mean when the fought with the tonfas and the black dude got owned (while flirting too), or at the end when the black dude is cocky again, and brags about "not getting his uniform dirty" or something, and then gets sliced in two?

There's prolly one good swordfight in there, but because it's sandwiched between mediocrity, I forgot about it.

The part where he goes into the room (before he has the gunfight with "Father"), and he backs up, grabs the guy's katana, and kills the ring of black suits. That's before he chops the one guy in half.

RE: Equilibrium, as an action movie it wasn't even that great.

The only good Matrix was 1. 2 and 3 were unbearable; if you're a total Matrix geek, you'll love the twists. I think the Wachowski brothers indulged themselves as Matrix fans too much and not enough as directors making a good movie.

The thing about the Matrix was that it broke new ground. You could watch it as a newcomer and be affected by it. The second and third Matrix, rather than having the groundbreaking power of the first would have been more effective as prequels or parallel storylines. I liked how the first Matrix ended. You knew that Neo had power over the agents. You knew he was going to win.

Spoiler (in white):
Even though Neo didn't exactly win at the end of 3, it wasn't satisfying. It was pretty convoluted and confusing at the end actually. So the Matrix actually screws everyone over because everything that was supposed to happen actually happened.

Maybe 2 and 3 would have made better separate movies rather than sequels, because the satisfying premise established in 1 was ruined just so that the world of the Matrix could have more depth. I don't think I'm very alone in saying that the Wachowskis could have done the movie world a favour (and leave a more poignant memory of the Matrix) had they stopped after the first Matrix.

Isn't it ironic that the first Matrix movie was the best one, though the first (actual) Matrix wasn't? Maybe they should have learned from their own movie.

Equilibrium is realy just a 1984 rip off told from the persipive of the though poilice rather then some random guy. They also steall some stuff from Berave new world. Nothing in it was orgnail at all. Just added two old books about the futtuer together with some matrix moves.

Best part of 1st matrix : everything

Best part of 2nd matrix : Neo flying and catching Trinity, with a speed so fast he whips cars into his slipstream. Also, the fight in the hallway of the Merovingian (sais = the cool) as well as the 18-wheeler battle with Morpheus and the agent.

Best part of 3rd : .............. hmm ... it's either the boring chase with the Logos, the DBZ fight at the end, or the death of every main character and integral person in the Matrix world

ex : "general, keep fighting!"
"i will boy! get me more ammo!"
general dude dies in his mech
"no! general! i wanted to be like you!"
boy grabs mech, starts shooting like an idiot
boy shoots for a while until he's taken down by the rush of sentinels

There was nothing good about the second movie. Especially considering the fact that there WAS NO second movie. Fortunately the Wachowski Bros. (sp?) have enough sense to stop with the first (and only) movie. Matrix Reloaded doesn't exist.
