I just saw "Stand and Deliver", a movie about a teacher starting an AP Calculus class in a Southern California high school in the '80s. The main theme of the movie was dealing with racial discrimination. Although it was a predictable movie, it was still "inspiring" in an odd sort of way.
Myself and a few friends watched Borat earlier. Fantastic film!
The part where Borat was having etiquette lessons was hilarious, especially when he showed the lady a picture of his 'son' (who was completely in the buff). It still makes me giggle when I think about it.
I saw borat and thought it was stupid. :lol: Thats just me lol.
I just watched "The majestic" the other day, yea i know its old, but its the first time i watched it and must say its preaty good. The reviews were not good at all but shows you how stupid reviews are because the movie was reallly good. Had a story, plus Jim carrey is a amasing actor thats all there is to it.
[QUOTE="Svetlana, post: 0]I just saw The Queen. Helen Mirren's performance was amazing. It was a strangely moving depiction of life at Balmoral/Buckingham palace in the week which shook the royal family.
The film makes you think about the Queen's devotion for her job, her stoicity and her incredible resolve.
In all, it's a fantastic film which I thoroughly recommend.
get off the queen
she has no power no more parliment just cant get rid of her
she has no job now but to sit there and look pretty
parliment blair and his lot control the uk not the queen
The departed the other day, must say this is how movies SHOULD be made from now on. The director did great with the story, the actors were amasing, dicraprio is purely amasing at acting, and the outcome just suprised the heck out of me lol.
It was the first movie in a long time that i was thinking "wow i should of watched it earlier" because its so good.
I really enjoyed the movie and not just for the incredible special effects but the performance of the cast as well. I also thought the virus was an interesting concept. The final scene of the movie is really sad too (even more so when you watch it again while listening to Matt Reeve's commentary).
Matt Reeves is one of my favorite movie directors though. Cloverfield, Let Me In, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and War for the Planet of the Apes were all good movies, in my opinion. It's going to be really interesting to see his newest movie, The Batman.
I really enjoyed this movie and I'm glad to see it won Best Visual Effects and Best Cinematography at the Oscars last night. The running time is a little long, in my opinion, but it does feature an interesting story that relies less on blockbuster action compared to most sci-fi movies. Personally, I like it more than the original Blade Runner.
This was a really awesome movie to see in theaters. I could be wrong but it looked to me like it was filmed at 60 frames per second instead of the usual 24 which I thought heightened the experience, especially complimenting the action scenes which I thought were flawless due to the camera smoothly following the best parts. The death of a certain friendly neighborhood superhero was actually spoiled for me before seeing the movie last night but I still responded with an audible, "Aw, man..." as it happened on the big screen.
I would highly recommend either seeing the movie in theaters or a big television screen with surround sound.
Annihilation - 7.5/10
I thought the premise was interesting and I really liked the sound design but didn't much care for the characters. I felt like I was watching a feature-length Twilight Zone episode that took an emotional cue from Arrival but wasn't nearly as good, in my opinion.
Even better than Rogue One, in my opinion. I actually think these prequel/spin-off Star Wars movies are better. There were several really interesting action scenes throughout this movie as well as an unexpected character reveal towards the end. I'm surprised it underperformed at the box office and that critical reception wasn't higher, although I do think Han Solo as a character in this movie isn't that memorable. But it looks amazing and it's fun to watch.
First Man - 9/10
Not only should you see the movie but also take the time to watch the behind the scenes footage. First Man is really impressive on a technical level, and the filmmaker does a great job putting into focus the intensity and danger of everything that lead up to the Apollo 11 mission.
