link failed.. that first poster was for 1989 batman..

anyways, I'm the opposite. I don't know how someone can dislike Inception! The guy spent numerous years of his life writing something that in my mind was very creative (satoshi kon's paprika is what comes to mind when I think of similarities, which nolan openly admitted he was inspired by it). He worked on the idea since he was sixteen... and it's one of the most inventive films to come out in the mainstream (I know.. this is part of why it was overrated) but still... that part with the mirrors... all the streets folding over, and how thought provoking the film was in general really caught my attention. I easily consider Nolan one of the best directors we have at the moment. To each his own though. Big Lebowski entertained me. It is similar to Fargo... as all hell breaks loose throughout the whole film. No doubt though that Fargo is the better film. I'd like to rate every coen bros film I've seen sometime.. I'll have to think about it.

My take...

Lebowski: GREAT!
Super Troopers: GREAT!
The Hangover: DOG SHIT!
The Crow: DOG SHIT!
Inception: DOG SHIT!
Dogma: GREAT!

Hellraiser 7/10

the trailer is a lot better than the film itself. I did like that scene where the man pushing the mattress sort of.. imitated the woman sleeping with frank. I found it very hard to care much about any of the characters. There was no depth to any of them at all. The reasons for what every character does in this film seemed very silly to me. Though, for some reason I can't help but say I enjoyed it to some extent. Also, I find it strange that "Pinhead" is the only character I've seen on the posters for the film, the one that gets mentioned the most, and yet I only remember seeing him in (at best) 4 scenes which weren't very long. ha..

I tend to agree. Hellraiser is a great idea and has some great moments but Clive Barker really is a fairly shit director. If ever a horror movie needed remaking, it's that one.

And while we're on the subject of films that everyone seems to like but which I just can't get the appeal of at all, it's Aliens, which just bores me senseless and is easily my least favourite in the Alien series which, just for the hell of it, I'd probably rank as:

1. Alien
2. Alien 3
3. Alien Ressurection
4. Aliens

I've not seen any of the Alien v Predator movies, if they count.

I disagree. The first Hellraiser to me is an absolutely perfect movie. I've watched it so many times. I love it.

perfect??!

anyways

Goodfellas 7/10

I keep watching this film to see if it eventually grows on me. I'll admit that this one has. I've enjoyed everything else I've seen directed by Scorsese. Taxi Driver and King of Comedy are two of my favorites of all time. Still though, it's hard for me to look at Goodfellas as the masterpiece many say it is...

 

9/10

hmm, that's cool. I think I would've liked it more if the characters had more to them than just.. idk, mindlessly going along with the julia character to have sex on the floor of some abandoned room. Or the husband not being able to absorb that julia was acting strange. I loved the atmosphere in certain scenes but it didn't last too long. I've said this before, but I'm not very familiar with the horror genre itself... but from the ones I've seen, I tend to enjoy those that are atmospheric.. those that get by with how surreal they are. Or I can enjoy something like Hausu which was just enjoyable overall... Cheesy at times, bizarre, not very frightening but I loved it.

ah yeah I kind of forget yr not a big horror fan. Anyway, I just always felt Hellraiser was really just crazy and awesome and had a really unique vibe about it. I've seen almost all of the sequels. None of them are that great. But the first movie, I don't konw. It just hits me the right way.

Well, I really enjoyed Yes Man, I love you Philip Morris, Bruce Almighty, etc..

I just think this was the totally wrong genre of movie for me...he can do so much better.

btw, my favourite JC movie overall is probably The cableguy or The Truman Show..

Red State

8/10

While I admittedly haven't seen that many Kevin Smith movies (seen Clerks, Mallrats, and Dogma), it's a little unusual for him to make something that's not supposed to be 100% funny. I usually don't like obvious allusions (the church/cult were a combination of the Branch Davidians at Waco and the Westboro Baptist Church), but in this case it works.. John Goodman was good, as always, (spoiler in black) though it would've been funnier if they'd shown him headbutt the church/cult leader than just talk about it.

ALSO

Natural Born Killers

9/10

Am I a bad person for having felt a bit sorry for Mallory? Of course no sane person would've supported her and Mickey going on a killing spree, but it's not like she wasn't messed up from being abused by her dad...speaking of her dad, I never thought Rodney Dangerfield could convincingly play a character the audience is supposed to hate, but he pulled it off. I like how the film satirized how violent American culture can be, and the weird cinematography in the first half....personally, I did not feel sorry for the talk show host...am I a bad person for that too?
