Movies and all it includes


The Moos

Recommended Posts

Let's discuss movies (and actors and such too) on this great forum. There's a lot of different movies out there and I'm sure we all have different oppinions on them all.

To start things of I have to ask who you think will win Golden Globes this year?

The Golden Globes are a joke this year as Children of Men hasn't been nominated!! Huff.

I haven't seen that movie but I've heard that it's really good. Strange that it wasn't nominated for a Golden Globe at all.

Perhaps it came after the "deadline"? :?

Anyway. I'm gonna see it and I hope it's great.

Speaking of movies that wasn't nominated there are a few that was overlooked. Blood Diamond is one of them.

One movie that I really think is going to win Best Foreign Language Film is El Laberinto del Fauno (Pan's Labyrinth). In my oppinion one of the best movies this year. Simply amazing biggrin.gif

still haven't seen that one but have heard it is a stunner...

looking forward to seeing blood diamond and babel (career bests from di caprio, pitt and blanchett apparently)...

saw stranger than fiction today. I thought it was interesting, worth a view maybe and certainly better than typical romcom crap, but also critically overrated.

Just started to download it - will let you know if it is a decent copy and send you the torrent if it is

If you're talking about "Pan's Labyrinth" then I had a great copy with english subtitles not long ago. Too bad I still don't have it. :(

I meant Children of Men - I have a very good copy of Pans Labyrinth but haven't found the time to watch it yet. I know I should because from the moment I read about it I knew it was a film I wanted to watch.

Okay. Then watch it as soon as you can. "Pan's Labyrinth" is just wonderful.

I just watched "Children Of Men" today and I've got to say that it was really good. Even though it takes place in the future it still felt strangely present.

I wouldn't say that it's the best movie this year but it's certainly a top-10 anyway biggrin.gif

I saw another movie yesterday called "The Illusionist" starring Edward Norton, Paul Giamatti and Jessica Biel. It was really good and really beautiful. Norton was yet again great and he really should get an award soon :?

I know I am way way off here but I just saw Clockwork Orange yesterday and I have to say one of the most thought provoking and weirdly brilliant movies I have ever seen. Kubrick was a genius that all I can say.

Yeah it's kinda great. Weird but great icon_wink.gif

Kinda great? Clockwork Orange is an all time classic - generally speaking if Kubrick makes a film you can guarantee it is worth watching time and time again!

I only said "kinda" because it's not really my kind of movie.

It is an all time classic but not my all time classic icon_wink.gif

Fair enough. I too at first thought some of the scenes in the movie were too graphic or bizzare but on second viewing, eveyrthing was just part of what was so good about the movie.

Put that right mate - of that list (and I am a huge 'Life of Brian' fan) Deer Hunter is right at the top. It is a film that every man, woman, beast and scouser should watch before they die.

Right now I am downloading Cidade de Deus, I'll take your suggestion and put Deer Hunter next on the list.

Good list but I have to confess that I haven't seen them all icon_redface.gif

I haven't seen Gladiator (I really don't like Russel Crowe) and I haven't seen The Sixth Sense (own it on DVD though icon_eek.gif ). I think I have seen The Deer Hunter but it has to have been many many years ago and I can't remember anything of it besides that scene with the gun icon_wink.gif

Finally I haven't seen, and you might think I'm a bit crazy, Shindlers List! icon_eek.gif

It seems as though I'm the only one in the world who hasn't seen it :(

A few movies I would like to ad to that list is:

La Vita ? Bella - Wonderful movie even though it is italian.

The Nightmare Before Christmas - I've seen it God knows how many times.

Pan's Labyrinth - Weird and wonderful.

While we are on the subjects of films that are rated by everyone except a few my one is Silence of the Lambs.

OK Hopkins performance is top drawer (although I found the character a little too Hollywood over the top serial killer basking in his own evil yet a fun and friendly killer who we are encouraged to take to our hearts) however I can't see why people classify it as a thriller masterpiece. Now I am not going as far as to say it is a bad film, it is good in places but the whole premise of the FBI sending a trainee to interview a mass serial killer is so farcial that it set the whole film off on an implausible tone.

I actually thought the script was pretty naff as well.
