Movie/film thread: resurrected

What have you just watched?

I just watched episode 20 of Heroes.  Great, great stuff as always.  Just three to go.

I just finished #20 of Heroes not more than ten minutes ago...coincidink? I think not....I wasn't really into it at first, was kinda hokey but it grew on me.
Still hooked on the Shield, keeps getting better and better.
And I have a soft spot for House.

I started watching a Korean film that my tutoring student lent me, called Save The Green Planet.  It looked a really cool and original idea for a film, about some people who suspect the C.E of a major corporation of being an alien, and kidnap him.  But the bloody disk started freezing up about 20 minutes in.  asasasasas I have one of the earth/fire/water indian trilogy to watch too, but it looks heavy.  Am waiting to be in the mood for it.

Missus and I decided to splurge today and go watch a movie in the big screen... what better excuse that the opening day of Spiderman 3 to do that...
I really missed the experience... big screen, proper english, nice colors, no one walking in front of the screen....  bfbfbfbfbf bfbfbfbfbf

Had a bit of a DVD  fest of old Chinese bought DVDs here at home (not in China that is)  on the weekend and nearly craptmyself when smack bang in the middle there it was - a large silhoutte standing up and stretching in the middle of Act 2 Scene 3.  Still good value for $1.50 'tho.  Agree that nothing beats the big screen experience however
choose carefully

I only own one 'filmed in the cinema' film.  What am I doing wrong?

True - I tend to wait about a month or so. 

Actually these days I rarely buy them.  Having CD Jr, I simply don't have the time to spend hours shifting through piles of DVDs.  And between karagarga and demonoid I get a far better selection online anyway.

I have just been introduced to the art of collecting movies off the net...man I HAVE been missing out big time, I got Wild Hogs yesterday..now there is a comedy if ever there was one,

I've given up on going to the movies, its too expensive, much easier to download em and watch em at myleisure... apparently it means I don't have to miss out on any o f my fav tv shows eith er, NCIS, Numbers etc ...THAT has made me a happy chappy :-)

As I said on the other place, I urge everyone to check out This is England.  It's the best British film I've seen in years, by a country mile.

My 1st post (sort of) hits on film---only fitting since I am a movie nut....

Just seen Grindhouse. The first film is crap but I liked Deathproof the Tatantino half. Sassy dialogue he is good at.

Speaking of Korean film check out The Host -a cute littl "monster attacks Seoul" film---it's the biggest Asian film ever sop they say.

And finally (erp cough cough) I finally got around to seeing Brokeback Mountain on DVD.
I resisted it for the obvious reason----------------------that it womn the Oscar.

But I have to admit it's a damn good flick. Once you get past the "summer of love cowboy" scenes it becomes good stuff.







And it's no coincidence that there is heavy smoking in all 3 films.....


and THE GOOD GUYS SMOKE....

The Host was good. I like Korean films, many are deeply warped.

Btw, Who was the 'good' guy in Brokeback Mountain?  :o

I just had my first cinema experience in China. Yes, 5.5 years and I have never been to a movie theater!!! Though the movie I watched was atrocious - Spiderman 3. I was warned about its absolute uselessness and waste of one's time. But still went - I had fun laughing at the stupidity diplayed in the movie and the poor script. cheexyblonde
