Default Last movie you watched

I saw a thread like this at reelviews.net and I thought it was pretty cool. Just talk about the last film you saw prior to posting, what you thought of it, etc.

I saw Cast Away (2000) about a week ago. I really enjoyed it; it was very compelling and believable.

Isn't that the movie about the man that crashes on an uninhabited island?

I last saw Empire strikes back.

I can't believe I'd never seen Star Wars before. These movies have really got it all! I want Yoda to be my pet

Yep that's the one.

I've still only seen one Star Wars film, and I can't remember it at all :P I should watch them, but I'm not into sci-fi as much as your typical INTP (I prefer fantasy)

I used to be more Fantasy, but Sci Fi is growing on me.

Which is awesome, because I have so much to catch up on! It's like a never ending list of movies-you-should-watch.

I already have a never ending list of movies I should watch . I have only recently discovered that there's a world of film outside of action flicks and such. My recent film-viewing has included the likes of Memento, Dr. Strangelove, Fight Club, The Life of Brian, Reservoir Dogs, and many more incredible films

The only movie from that list I'd like to see too, is Dr. Stranglove, and then only because I can mock the stupid americans.

Everyone should watch 'cloudy with a chance of meatballs'. That is the best animation movie I ever saw. My mom just bought it for me for when exams are done.

I'm such a kid.

Akira.
Still a great film, even though the dubbing is a bit crap in places. (I prefer watching subtitled anime to dubbed because the translation doesn't need to be altered for the timing to fit)

I actually saw Iron Man 2 today, it was rather stupid. It didn't really have a great plot to it, and the action/script was dull and unexiting. It was a bit too draggy, and the climax wasn't as great as one would expect from a drawn-out script. Oh yes, the comedy was too cliche' and the audience annoyed me whenever they laughed at it

I watched Stalker (1979) last night. It was really quite interesting. It's a Russian film, with English subs, by director Andrei Tarkovsky. The title is of course referring to the Russian meaning, of 'guide'. The STALKER games are related to this film, and anyone who has played them will find connections.

It's supposed to be deep, but slow. I found it deep but not all that slow really. I need to see it again, as it had a lot of philosophical stuff about life etc. Visually, the film was amazing. I loved the slow cuts, the atmosphere, and the Zone itself. I had been recommended to see it with the original mono soundtrack, as opposed to the 5.1 dvd one, and the soundtrack was quite sparse (which is how I like it).

The last film I watched was Jumper back in February (I think?). Weak storyline, complete lack of believability and just a general glorification of the "fuck everyone else, do what's fun without care for the consequences" mentality so prevalent in society today. I was off work sick and bedridden but still found some energy to get angry at how shallow it was.

Hardly going to encourage me to watch (suffer) more...

Into The Wild.
I wasn't too impressed with it, but it had a nice quality I liked. Not such a great storyline for a movie though. I loved the way it was filmed.

"the little shop of horrors" (with the the) original version from the 1960's with jack nicholson and shit. wasn't a musical.

i was just in the musical for my high school, so this was super weird. also i may or may not have been a little high at the time, making it super duper weird. jack nicholson's character made no sense. and the dentist wasn't abusing audrey. so that made me sad.

also, "audrey junior"? wtf? no, it's audrey TWO, bitch. get it straight.

(though it's kind of funny since this is the original after all... ah well.)

If it is so then it reflects a personality's liking for its shadow. Sadly, it implies that ENTJ>INTP.

Marla is ExTP? I really don't know.

Just saw 'Pi' (1998), overall... I liked it okay, but I'm still pondering. So far, the more I think about it, the more I like it. So it has the potential to be a favorite in the long run.

Impressed by:
1. Good use of black and white.
2. Very effective atmosphere that conveys the feeling of obsession/paranoia well. It does this on a small budget($60,000), too.
3. Has the longest movie title in all of cinema.

Interesting note: This was the first film for both director Darren Aronofsky and composer Clint Mansell. Neat.

'Friday' is the only movie with Ice Cube in it that I can think of which I liked. I know that I saw 'Barbershop' before, but it must not have been very memorable because I can't remember much of anything about it. What was it that made the movie "better than it looks" for you?

Just watched "Stalker" by Andrei Tarkovsky. If you've never seen it I cannot recommend it highly enough. This is the third time I've seen it and the experience was completely different from the first two. It absolutely blows me away every time.

edit: I see I'm not the first to bring up Stalker. Speaking of sound, this was my first time to watch it with a really great sound system. It really brought out how brilliantly Tarkovsky manipulated sound effects for the film. I truly can't rave enough...

Seen a few films since my last post: Das Boot (1981) Director's cut, The Road (2009), The Haunting (1963).

Das Boot was spectacular, and I also really liked The Road and The Haunting. Now that my semester exams are over, I have time to watch more films than previously . I'm intending on Requiem for a Dream sometime soon. Hope I won't be scarred for life.

Going to watch The Hunt for Red October (1990) now, will report back afterwards. I hope I haven't been spoiled by watching Das Boot (regarded as the greatest submarine war film) before all submarine films that I'm about to do.

Edit: Enjoyable film, Das Boot was more to my tastes though. I also noticed that this was more based on exceptional circumstances and Das Boot based on rather normal circumstances.

Just watched Felon (2008). I am glad that I had never heard of it before seeing it, because I probably would have passed it up as just another prison movie. The film was excellent in many different aspects and overall very enjoyable.

The characters are solid. The story is a little cliché, however, it is based on at least one actual occurrence(Corcoran Sate Prison) and is portrayed somewhat realistically. Speaking of which, a lot of film was done very realistically(that is, for a Hollywood movie), from the police/judicial handling of the crime, to some guards' attitudes, and prison politics. That is what makes the film stand out above other prison movies for me.

Ichi the Killer... what fun! It was alright, easily the most violent film I've seen, but nowhere near the most disturbing/messed up. I can't decide if it's a very stylish but ultimately empty film, or one that has some interesting things to say that get hidden behind all the glitz and violence. I guess the fact that I do see interesting and defensible ideas mean that there's at least something.

The last movie I watched was "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" (1963)

It's almost totally nonsensical. It stars Spencer Tracey, is full of slapstick, reckless driving, and has possibly the most absurd ending I've ever seen in a feature film. I loved it.

The last movie I watched...Toy Story 3. It was probably better than the first one...but I don't remember the first one that well. Never saw the second...Anyway, as usual, Pixar knows what it's doing in terms of storytelling! Even the short at the beginning was smart and entertaining. They showed what the experience of playing with toys is like from a child's perspective, which better developed the human characters. This is probably the best movie I've seen in awhile. (Oh my God...that Ken doll...!)

Watched Sin City about a week ago. Fantastic how overblown the noir elements are. Vivid film, the characters were a highlight, and the narration, and of course the eye candy. The city really comes to life too.

I saw Ink yesterday. It as well done for a low budget independent film. I enjoyed it thoroughly.



Before that I watched the 1974 release of Murder On the Orient Express. The accents were horrible. However, it's a classic and I loved Ingrid Bergman in it.

Donnie Darko. And just before that, Primer. Both amazing movies, they really make you think. Especially Primer, and it's even more notable for its small budget ($7,000).

I think it was The Wolfman (2009?). Had some entertaining moments, but overall nothing really sets it apart from most other omgmonster! horror movies. I actually don't know why I continue to watch these kinds of movies, seeing as I've (mostly) hated the genre for years now. I suspect I enjoy seeing unimportant characters disemboweled/decapitated juuuust enough to justify it. It's porn, basically.

The Wolfman was alright; I loved the setting and just everything visually but it was agonisingly predictable.


My latest movies watched:

Blue Velvet (1986): Verrrry strange. Actually probably less strange than other Lynch films I've seen, but still way strange. Good film, I enjoyed it.

The Shawshank Redemption (1994): Great film, lived up to its reputation. I hate prisons but this is one excellent film.

Shutter Island (2010): Great atmosphere and setting. Liked the start and middle a bit more than the end. Became a bit too familiar towards the end but it was a good film nevertheless.

Law Abiding Citizen (2009)
Some aspects of the latter half really dropped the movie's overall quality. Therefore, I didn't like it immediate after seeing it. However, after remembering the solid first ≈2/3 and thinking more about the ending, I really liked it a lot more.

I am surprised to see such bad reviews of it. It's not perfect by any means, but I think that it is much better than what the reviews describe. It is a great criticism of the modern U.S. legal system.

Sling Blade.
was about a guy who just got out of a mental institution after being there for a really long time. Sounds rather typical, but it is a very different feeling sort of movie. i would recommend watching it.

I also just saw Inception. It was visually stunning and you get to see lots of handsome men in pin stripe suits. However, that isn't really a good reason to see the film. You can get "visually stunning" out of Avatar and the plot of that movie was horrible. You can find lots of pin stripe suits from Gangs of New York. The pacing however made the movie for me. It was masterfully handled to the point of being a central motivating force in this film. It is rare to see a movie that isn't simply an awkward fumbling in it's pacing these days. Dicaprio has become a capable actor. He pulls off a tortured hero powerfully but more importantly he manages his role with subtly. There is no hamming or extraneous silliness. The humerus moments are carefully placed so that the audience can catch it's breath before plunging headlong into the next psychological crescendo.

Damn. This was a good movie. I think it will be the best movie I've seen this year other than Shutter Island that is.

Inception is one of the best movies I've ever seen. I haven't even had time to analyze it because I've been so blown away since I went to see it on Friday.

Despicable Me - the film's actually pretty funny. There's a lot of shout outs to pop culture, and its brand of humour is one that can appeal to kids and adults. I'd recommend seeing it with a friend (so you can catch as many references as possible).

Going to watch Inception this Thursday! First night it's in Australia (cinemas at least). I love how much praise is being heaped on this film Can't wait. Been a long time since I've seen an excellent film at the big screen instead of in my bedroom. I think the last one was LOTR: The Return of the King.

Films I've seen since my last post: Vanilla Sky (2001), liked but I prefer my strange films to be strange from the beginning; Primer (2004), watched after it was mentioned in this thread by Tempestas, I enjoyed it but this is the sort of film which gets noticeably better the more times you see it. First year university level physics isn't going to get me to grips with the film on the first viewing. I'll be watching it again, with my dad, sometime soon.

I watched Inception last night.

I'm pretty sure Nolan is a TP, and (N)TPs really seem to resonate with his movies.

I won't go into a full review here, but it was definitely worth seeing and now my brain is trying to puzzle through all the intricacies of the plot... it's one of those that could be worth a second watch, just to get a firm handle on what happened and why. I really enjoyed it.
