Have you seen any movies lately that you would recommend to anyone?

I just watched Vantage Point.

Pretty damned good movie. New style of telling a story.
From....ehhh...different Vantage Points.

I also watched 28 weeks later.
That sequel, believe it or not, was better than the original.

The last one I have seen was "I am Legend"...

I liked it... I thought Will Smith was very convincing as the last man on earth (that's what he thought).

I agree with you about 28 Weeks Later. I actually thought it was a great movie. The ending shocked me though.. ****spoiler alert***** I thought the little boy had the mothers blood where he would be immune to the disease too.

I dont have any movies to recommend. Im kind of saddened by the fact that lots of new movies are sucking lately. Silent hill 2 sucked ass. I was bored watching it. Even Resident Evil: Ectinction sucked. Too fucking short.

Yeah, it was pretty good. A bit of a knock off of 28 days later. But I preferred I am legend.

He did some good acting in the scenes where the dog died and when he had to leave his wife and kid.

It was a "knock off "of the book I am legend written in 1954 by richard matheson, you silly goose.

I liked the book better, its far more depressingly funny.

As for movies that i would recommended...

The prestige
Grindhouse
Tetsuo - The Ironman
Shoot em up
Gin gwai aka The eye (the original, not that jessica alba bullshit.)

I've been watching older movies lately as well.

In no particular order:

A Clockwork Orange
Children of Men
Howl's Moving Castle
Ichi the Killer
Natural Born Killers
No Country for Old Men
Pan's Labyrinth
Running with Scissors (the book is also excellent)
White Oleander (the book is also excellent)
The Dark Crystal
The Labyrinth
The Departed
A History of Violence

I'm sure I'll think of more.

You score major points with me! Hayao Miyazaki's stuff rocks, as does Jim Henson's Dark Crystal and Labyrinth, of course.


If I could recommend one movie that most people haven't seen, it would HAVE to be Harold and Maude. Awesome flick.

Some other stuff I like that I haven't seen listed: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Heathers, 12 Monkeys, and Memento. I loved Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer as well. That's just off the top of my head. I'll try to think of more later.

Of course. It was a recommendation from ME. If Titty would have said it, you wouldn't have disagreed.
I liked it, then again, i don't get motion sickness so i was able to actually watch it and not be distracted by the shaky-cam.

Absolutely agree with you on that one.

The only thing that would have made The Eye memorable would have been a full frontal nude shot of JA.

Along with decent acting, it was missing as well.

I am not sure, but I think the thread was in reference to RECENT movies, though stating the oldies but goodies does stir up conversation.

Miyazaki is classic as is director Akira Kurosawa.


Recent films:

10,000 B.C.
I had no idea they spoke English that far back in time.
I thought the ideas of the pyramids was interesting which
had an Atlantean feel to it. Plausible.

Not bad, but not great. Nice computer graphics.
Try to keep in mind that the Hero is part of the prophecy.
That's why he can befriend a Saber Tooth Tiger.

Are you getting nitpicky with ME? Cut it out! The initial post said 'seen any movies lately', not 'seen recent movies.':khi2d:

Hehehe.. Truth be told, I've watched a lot of recently-made movies. I'm just not all that impressed with anything made lately. Pity, too.

I haven't seen 10,000 B.C., but I'd like to. You can bet your butt I won't go to a theater to see it, though.

Yes, I was getting nitpicky, but in a nice way.

And yes, I have a nice butt for my age. It actually defies gravity.:29_003:

Seeing 10,000 B.C. on DVD is the way to go.

Where the sun doesn't shine
The only recent movie I've seen that was any good is Eastern Promises.

The new Resident Evil movie was a bit of a disappointment. It ended just as the action was beginning to pick up. It seemed more like a vehicle to lay the groundwork for the upcoming sequel than anything else. The first two were better.

30 Days Of Night sucked too. It never really got off the ground and the action was inconsistent.

I want to see that so bad. I cant think of one sucky movie Will smith ever did.
There was one that wasn't as good... Wild Wild West... It was funny but not worth watching it again...
