i watched saw 3 today..nothing special, same shit different movie..lotta gore, lotta blood, some slow movie boring parts but the ends of the saw movies are what keeps me watching, i will watch saw 4 just cuz i watched the other three
thedon's score: 5/10 i was a little dissappointed with it, but the ending as always got me looking forward to the next one
there i was...mother of god, there i am..holy fuck
^ the dons score is pathetic.
Saw 3 was really good.
^Shut up fatty. Saw 3 was bearable at best. The novelty factor has disappeared now and it's just an excuse to create more visceral gore scenes now.

^A similar rationale for films such as Epic Movie, Date Movie etc. Goddamn the studio execs.
Actually that's not strictly fair - goddamn the stupid film going public that give credence to studios releasing utter bilge.
Luckily Epic Movie made right around $30 million so I doubt it was a big success financially. Hopefully that trend will keep up and they'll eventually phase out.
In other news, I watched Hitchcock's Rebecca yesterday and to be honest I was a bit underwhelmed. It's certainly a different Alfred Hitchcock than we're used to and he's still quite the master behind the lense, however, even though he masterfully kept us in some suspense the middle third of the movie felt really meshed together and there wasn't too much development or discernable events during it. The last third was what I would have expected from something that's won the Best Picture Oscar and directed by such a big name but it's one of my lesser preferred Hitchcock's.
***1/4 (out of 4)
Guess what upcoming flick this blurb is about...
"A big fat zero...an exhaustingly busy cinematic puzzle, this year's Butterfly Effect--but even less entertaining."
The Number 23 perchance! :) I don't think there have been many good reviews of it full stop.Originally Posted by Line
What did you think of Marie Antionette by the way cos the reviews of that were pretty luke warm at best.
Watched Miami Vice last night. I know it's been a while but it wasn't on my top films to watch and after watching it can see why. As others had already said it's overlong and just looks like it thinks it's better than it is. Very disappointed. Very Michael Mann in it's wordy-ness and build up of character. The way it is shot is like it is following straight on from Collateral stylistically. But it never engages and to be honest even the characters were very stock. Shame.
I actually liked Marie a lot. A lot of the critical problems with it stemmed from its inaccuracies as a biopic but the story was more of Coppola's reflection of young girls thrust into trying social situations and having to cope with it with very little life experience. My one complaint was the film had a more serious tone than I expected (which is fine) but also had some mix-tape vignettes that were very entertaining and altered the mood of the film. I feel Coppola should have included more of these and just overall made the film a bit edgier which would A) modernize the character of Marie more, making the comparison to girls of today more accessible, and B) created a more uniform feel throughout the film.
Still, very well shot and acted and the art direction was spectacular; a very interesting take on the subject matter. Would fall just outside my top 10 for the year.
100% Agree with you.Originally Posted by Rocky
I just saw The Number 23 and laughed my ass off. It was that bad.
I just saw Reno 911: Miami. Laughed pretty hard, it was quite funny.
Do you like the show? I really hate it but found the trailers and ads for the movie to be much funnier than anything I've seen on the actual show.Originally Posted by Paulie
The show is pretty good, but the movie is alot better than any of the shows. The movie is rated R, so they could take the humor and stretch it out pretty far You cant really do any of that on TVOriginally Posted by Line
I watched "Right at Your Door" last night.
Pretty good. Great little thriller that manages to keep the tension up pretty well given it's limited setting. Poses a difficult question about what you'd do in the event of a dirty bomb attack in relation to your loved ones who are outside the house which you've sealed up. I won't give away the end but although they didn't resort to happy ever after it still stretched the credibility of reality a little in the way the government reacted, but still worth a watch.
Anybody going to see 300 this weekend?
