Watched a bunch of head-trip flicks this weekend
 

had never seen it. I laughed a lot. I thought a lot. wacky wild stuff. 8/10

 

Had seen this years ago. liked it even more the second time around. laughed a lot. forgot how funny PK Dick was. 8/10

 


Had never seen this either. I bet it would have been a lot more wild if I was raised on western movies and saw this back in 73. I liked it OK though. 7/10

Had seen this before too, but wantedto see it again. 8/10

I was going to watch Silent Hill Revelations last night but ran out of time, is it worth it next time? I adored the first one, even it was terribly flawed with plot contradictions and dead-ends.. Wait. Update. After reading several reviews I realized why I didn't watch this last year, apparently by a considerable majority opinion it sucked

It's a TV movie about what would happen if a ''dirty bomb'' was set off in London and how the city would cope. There's a Scottish actor called Alastair Galbraith on it, like the great musician!

Loved it! I still can't stand Death Proof and I'm not a big fan of all Rodriguez's stuff but PT was great. Love the bit when the hero has to ride a miniature motorbike, and the whole barbecue subplot. Tellingly, the only scene I didn't like was the one with Tarantino.

Got some stuff from the Redbox and it was slim pickings

 


Allright stuff. some good tension in beginning. NOT the best movie of last year by a long shot, but Hollywood loves to pat themselves on the back. Horrible last 30 minutes though. straight up fake drama, having the two "producers" be held up by a film shoot just outside the offices where they have to be to cover for the mission. stupid. I give it a 5/10.


 

BRUTAL. STRAIGHT BRUTAL. horrible So Horrible. The biggest waste of Buscemi I have ever seen. Why do people still think this fucker from 40year virgin is a good actor? He is fucking horrible. Dead eyes and face, like he sucked assholes to get his career and he now hates it. the WORST MOVIE I HAVE SEEN IN 2013. 1/10

death proof except for the last 15 or so minutes was an unbearable piece of shit. watched it this weekend. went to sleep in the middle of it and finished it the next day. we were saying "fucking zombies ate the budget and tarantino had to show just a bunch of people yapping", that sort of thing. well the budget was good for all the car shit though, i mean, eventually, fuck! yes there were disturbing moments here and there but ugh! only the final sequence was good. rodriguez kicked his ass on this one. i mean, if it was a competition (it had to be) rodriguez wins by K.O. plus the machete trailer, fuck yeah!

DP is one of the very few films that I genuinely hate. I was ready to write off Tarantino altogether until I saw Django, which I really liked. I was actually preparing myself to loathe it and was almost annoyed when about half way through I had to admit to myself that it's actually really good.

You mention liking the Machete trailer. Have you seen the actual film? It's great.

That was the movie where the penny finally dropped for me, that Tarantino is ultimately a snob. I could tolerate Inglorious until it becomes this bullshit ode to European film culture. That's Tarantino's problem. He doesn't simply like stuff, and want to celebrate it, when the dialogue in his movies reference some obscure movie or another it feels almost like a lecture, like he's somehow trying to educate his audience. Rodriguez never does that. The references are there if you know them but he never rams them down your throat. There's scenes in Planet Terror that clearly owe a lot to John Carpenter but Rodriguez never felt the need to signpost them, whereas you know the same scene directed by Tarantino would have to involve some character chastising another for not having seen The Fog.

To be fair about Inglorious though, I did really like the scenes with Brad Pitt and Christoph Waltz. The rest of it just made me cringe though.

I don't know if I could ever get bored watching anything involving Mexican priests carrying pump action shotguns. That's just a whopping big neon 'YES!' to me.

 


Can't wait for the sequel. Charlie Sheen as president.

well yeah tarantino is a name-dropping video store nerd by training, and that much has been clear from the start-- sometimes this works, and sometimes like the name-dropping british agent who tries to pass for german he gets himself (and others) killed for it. (if i was into psychoanalisis, i'd look into this character as a representation of his fear and guilt. but anyway...)

i liked inglorious basterds in spite of the cringe-worthy moments (e.g., "this is jewish vengeance!"). mostly because during those moments i was still laughing at the funny shit from previous scenes. pitt and waltz were too good to let you notice much else.

I thought Basterds was great, and have seen it twice. It was a very entertaining film.

Django, however, was so boring, so awfully plotted, so unbearably written from a cracka-ass perspective, that I grew to HATE it by the final reel.

Yeah, on paper a Jack Nicholson Western would be the shit, but he did several, and they all simply suck. Its like, all of his curmudgeon characters would be so perfect, but didn't really develop fully until The Shining and after..
