Re: THREAD: Which movie have you just seen and how was it?


Zombi Divimax Edition: Argento's version of Dawn is a stunning sight to behold. All in all, this is a good film that I dare say would be accepted by mainstream American audiences today. I only wonder why this re-edit doesn't have more music rather than less.... 7 of 10 stars.

Aqua Teen Hunger Force Volume 4: And the innocent shall suffer big time! Overall, this edition is slightly inferior to it's predecessor, mostly because of the extra features. I confess not to understand the point of some of the extra material. Also, the disc packaging was taken over by supporting characters. Unfortunate, but not totally unwelcome. Spacecataz forever. 6 of 10 stars(funny, but not everyone's cup of tea).

Once Upon A Time In The West(Special Collector's Edition): If you only watch one cowboy film, it's either this one or The Good The Bad And The Ugly. Photography here is simply amazing. Everything seems choreographed to Ennio Morricone's score. 9 of 10 stars-as close to perfect as possible.

Re: THREAD: Which movie have you just seen and how was it?


Fahrenheit 911: I almost blacked-out with anger. Mikey Moore has done little but tried to throw every sniping comment that he can muster at GWB. Admittedly, GWB has not answered all questions about connections with certain unsavories. He certainly STILL needs to clarify the War On Terror and the Iraq War in the eyes of the American people. All things considered, Moore pushes accusations instead of facts and a condescending monologue instead of evidence. His interpretation of the 2000 election is inaccurate. His perception of the Bin Laden family is twisted to fit his purpose. Everyone hoped that the film would spur much-needed dabate, but alas it only rehashed old commentaries. Oh, and the film failed to turn the 2004 election in Moore's favor. So Moore, the director, failed.

And he lied about his comments at the Academey Award's ceremony in which he recieved the Oscar for Bowling For Columbine. Haven't quite forgiven him for that yet, mostly because I watched the ceremony on television AND I REMEMBER WHAT HE SAID.

SHATTERED GLASS: Hayden Christiansen plays the role of a journalist. He plays the role as twitchy and emotionally fragile, which thankfully avoids social and political subtext. A journalist that invents the news. The concept behind the film is quite disturbing, as the film aslo explains how easily it could happen.

Re: THREAD: Which movie have you just seen and how was it?


The problem with Moore is that he has his own agenda. It's a very biased film that matches his own leftist views. Gun Control! Republicans! etc...
He praises Tony Blair, but do we the British people? No, cause he's lied and won't take to any political side, left or right, preferring to stay centre ground and fu**ing up a lot of people in the process. Personally I align on the right, voting against Blair and his fags in the last general election. His government is too, too soft. What's needed it a strict political no-nonsense values party. Problem is, there isn't one. What we could face if the two main British Parties don’t sort out their act is some kind of Fascist Party. This is happening. The British National (socialist) Party, the BNP has already won local council seats, so in future they could hold seats in our senate.

Try watching some of the 9/11 conspiracy films out there. Fascinating stuff too.

British National Socialists? Nazi jokes not withstanding, the party could be abasorbed by a larger [sign in to see URL] would make a large Nazi party... America has more than two parties, but they vote with the Republicans or Democrats during our biggest elections. Constitution Party is strictly right. Libertarian Party and United Citizens are oddly wedged in the middle. The Greens and the all-new Ralph Nader Party are left. These parties collectively hold mostly state-wide and lower offices. They will never ever have any kind of traction. The agendas that they represent have been well-documented, and they don't seem like lunatics. In matters of politics, I guess it comes down to money for advertising.

Re: THREAD: Which movie have you just seen and how was it?


Yah know, I once applied to join the BNP but they sent me packing because I failed the racial purity and head measurement tests. Apparently I’m too foreign for this working class bogshite party.

The BNP stems from far-right groups, and the power they do have is in mostly poor working-class areas of this country. Problem for them though is that there's too many ethnic minorities in these areas. While there is some (not much) of there policy I'd agree on, most of it is just aimed at gaining total fascist control of Britain; which will never happen. Gee, it’d be like hoodies or football hooligans running the country. The only thing I agree on with them on is the whole political correctness lark that is rife within local councils in this country serving the minorities, not the majority, white, Christian etc.. There should be some sort of crime for this sort of stupidity. But I suppose Political correctness is just one of those things, it will always be there and I love waking up in the morning and seeing the overly exaggerated news stories that come about from a case of Political Correctness gone mad. Like this one from a right-wing paper no one likes (including me) called The Daily Mail.

Yes, it’s true, Christmas was banned cause some Muslim was offended by the fairy lights.

Re: THREAD: Which movie have you just seen and how was it?


That's weird because Britain sounds like America.

In case you aren't familiar with America's "War On Christmas", let me tell you that mentionings of Christmas were removed/protested by athiests and civil libertarians all across the country. Weird stuff, that one who doesn't have a religion would protest religious displays. You'd think they wouldn't care, but no, instead they got really upset.

Funny, shocking, thought-provoking and more. Trust me! F1ck Dawn of the Dead for the time being and see this film. I can't stress how much you need to see it. It's bloody brilliant. Just hunt for it, high and low - you need to see it. A f!ck A clockwork Orange too, this is miles better. It's a Could you recommend me a film now [sign in to see URL]. There's no DVD out, which is a travesty but it's around on VHS (check ebay) so go get it. You won't be disappointed. I love it; it's in my top five films for sure. I watched it for a second in a year yesterday and was blown away again. There's so much people can learn from this film. YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS FILM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's part of a Trilogy btw, and next week I should have the third which is called 'Britannia Hospital'. I can't wait.

Re: THREAD: Which movie have you just seen and how was it?


V for Vendetta: [sign in to see URL] film, which I liked? That I'm not sure of. I'm half and half with this film, on the one hand it was entertaining, yes. However, it was also a bit preachy with obvious hardly subtle undertones of this post-9/11 world. 3/5
Assault on Precinct 13 (original): Brilliant soundtrack, lots of action but as much as I love Carpenter's films I prefered the remake. 3/5 Carpenters best film? 'The Thing' for me.
Britannia Hospital: The sequel to my favourite film 'OH LUCKY MAN!' (which I urged you to see)...Poor. Maybe it was the budget, or lack of. This is a thoughtful film though, the ending is especially thought-prodding - playing with the idea that machine will ultimately surpass humans. Needed more Malcolm Mcdowell. 4/5
Bloodrayne: Incoherent tosh. What a mess! I think Mr Boll loves film, but this and his others, it's how he sees HIS perfect film. He's a very selfish man for this, forgetting his viewers for his perfectionist nonsense. Just awful, no words can really describe this cack. Every fundemental factor that pieces a film together is missing, as it goes from one thing to another without the viewer really knowing how. To his credit Mr Boll has some interesting filming techniques but beyond that this shouldn't have an 18 or R rating, it should have a U or cert 3 cause the tellytubbies is more easy to follow. Alone in the Dark was better, although I wouldn't even give that a mark out of five. This gets bugger all because I just had to turn it off half way through cause my brain was about to [sign in to see URL] view this film when you feel that you have no talent or confidence, cause this film will give all back - UWE BOLL is quite simply, a joke. And to think he actually defends this garbage! He's either in fits of some psychotic mental illness when making his films, escaped from some German asylum or there's a scam going on.
Avoid this film like the plague(or bird-flu). 0/5


BTW: I think I may use the V character or a character influenced by him in TIL4 'Tales from the Timepoop and the WTC movie premier' .Maybe our Pike will appear as him. who knowS? I get the feeling that the real pike is pushing this film at the moment as proof of some nasty agenda his imagination has culled [sign in to see URL], hope to read what you've seen recently, mike. Don't running away from this forum, it loves you.emoticon Till then, hope all is well and good day to you fine sir!

Re: THREAD: Which movie have you just seen and how was it?


Okay, okay. I now go back on what I said about V for Vendetta. Just playing back the scenes in my head and doing a bit of research on the film I've come to a better conclusion. Now, I like the film a lot. V represents something which is being supressed today - the idea of liberty. For that reason alone it's an important movie. It's a giant analogy for 9/11, bush, neo-consevatism, iraq [sign in to see URL] and you'll see what I mean....
[url][sign in to see URL]
I liked it, and I'm no liberal either.
One thing that would've been interesting however would have been to see the reaction a film like this would have recieved had it been set in America instead of Britain. And another film from Warner too, the only daring Hollywood studio about these days, as it has been for many years.


Bloodrayne, however - my opinion on this turd remains. Cack. emoticon

Okay, I've posted nothing here about movies I've seen because, well, none have truly impressed [sign in to see URL]...

CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST: Need I say more? I watched this six hours ago, and only now the nausea recedes. And that GO**AMN theme [sign in to see URL] swear to God, next time I see a car accident or something I'll probably have to go hide somewhere because I WON'T BE ABLE TO SHUT OUT THAT MUSIC. OH.... 5/10(for generally low production value)
