Drag Me to Hell: worth a watch, but a bit over hyped
Transformers 2: Over hyped again but I'm not bitter about the money I spent to watch it.
Terminator 4: see above
Public Enemies: over hyped and I do regret paying money to see it.

Yes, "The Fallen" was very disappointing and pathetic and I hate it how Megatron and the Fallen were so easily crushed at the end by optomus prime.

This kind of movie.. the last one I watched was I am Legend. I never heard of Event Horizon. Why? We can see alien pop out from someone's head?

Drag me to hell.. seriously.. similar to Scary Movie. Though the first 15 min I am covering my face with my hands.. Embarrassed

Hey... transformers is a cool movie.. One of the coolest for yr 2009! Though Megatron and The Falled were easily defeated by Optimus Prime, he was killed before by Megatron. So...  It's worth my money.. to watch the movie...and.... for all the posters too..Approve

Harry Potter.. let us see how the Albus Dumbledore die...

I saw "knowing" with Nicolas Cage. It is a real good end of the world scenario. Saved by the aliens the world burns up- ahhhh!!

I got an old DVD titled "Mr. Motto's last warning." It is an old movie from the 1940's about WWII

Also "Benedict Arnold" an A&E dramatized version about his involvement in the American Revolution.

..the other day i watched Nikolai Lebedev's Zvezda (The Star, 2002)..i was really looking forward to this film but was sadly disappointed....having expected to see a  film with all the fine trimmings of Russian  made war films, it just turned out to be a collection of cliches akin to the Hollywood school of film-making....in fact, having viewed just too many scenes with the token 'love interest' (bit like Enemy at the Gates)DeadDeadDead, i turned the film off about 45 minutes in....from now on, i think i will stick to the old black and white and Soviet era produced war films.....
Clap
....Defiance was not too bad as it managed to just about tip toe over what could have been yet another cliched film....Defiance was ultimately redeemed by the photo set of the real individuals at the start of the end credits....that kind of thing never fails to move me....bit like Band of Brothers when each episode contained memoirs from the actual guys....
 
..anyway, i guess i must be due another re-run of Come and See...ClapClapClap
 
..all the best...AoO...

Angels&Demons - nice movie

Taegukgi(Brotherhood)- best war movie i have seen since S.P.R, amazing how the older brother went from 'medal of Honor' soldier in the South Korean army to super general leading one of North Korea's best armies, i will leave it at that, because i don't want to spoil it for those who haven't seen it yet.

I haven't watched a major movie release in years, save recommendations from friends. =/
Watered down plotlines with half-witted attempted 'cunning' phrases and quick thrill cg explosions, along with pointless and plot wrecking sex scenes, does not a good movie make. =P Not for me anyways. For those who do like such things, no offense to them.  They may indulge to their hearts content.
However, apparently, Hollywood hates anyone with different tastes than mentioned above, and does not want their business. =P

What ever happened to that exceptional caliber of movie and show making, now seemingly lost to the world? =(

OK so last night I finally got to go and see Transformers 2! Now, I am pretty biased because I generally enjoy all movies, but T2 was AWESOME. The action was insanely brilliant, and I never got bored of it throughout the film. Some great settings, mad robots, epic fight scenes.etc all made up for the dubious plot compared to the first film.

Loved it.

Well if you want a plain good movie, there is always Edward Scissorshand,
For comedy there's the "Dr. Strangelove: or how I learned to love the bomb" funniest movie ever, from 1964, joking about the threat of doomsday caused by the arms race between the US and USSR.

Otherwise I would recommend, Heat (1990). The director, Mann, really knows how to describe two men on different sides of the law. It's one of the best movies I have ever seen.

"Hitlers Elite" is also a great movie, showing the manipulations going on at the napola school during the war and how the young germans were fascinated by the führer-culture.

Thanks. I haven't seen the last one, so I'll be sure to check it out. (Heat was pretty good by the way, I agree)

Out of good movies I have actually seen recently (other than documentaries and such, which makes most of my diet), I rather enjoyed the new Pathfinder[US] and Chi Bi[China] (Red Wall pt. 1 - still have to see pt. 2)

Most of my very favorite series, movies, and shows, are animated.

So I watched Bruno today with some friends. I have to say, this movie is waaaay more different then what I anticipated it to be. What I thought would be another Borat-like film was extremely disturbing. With all the penises flying about and strange dresses, this film was not for me. Confused

XD LOL That sounds like a rather terrifying experience, Jallaludin. You have my empathy and hopes you will no longer get unexpected 'rising surprises'

I saw The Devil's Tomb last night, starring Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Ron Perlman.  It had a really interesting storyline but some poor acting and low budget hurt it in the end.  It is worth renting though.

I agree Knights - Transformers 2 was fantastic!

I saw Harry Potter: The Half-Blood Prince last week, and was very pleased. The cinematography was very well done, and they were rather faithful to the book. I'd see it again.Thumbs Up

A good Movie is Behind Enemy Lines! Behind Enemy Lines is a 2001 thriller war film directed by John Moore and starring Gene Hackman and Owen Wilson. Its fictional plot is centered on the story of uncovering a massacre in the Bosnian War of 1992-1995 by an American naval aviator.

Hey Denis! I've seen the movie, great subject. But sometimes the movies goes a bit to Hollywood! :D To much unreal action (firing anti-aircraft guns at hills)
But I really love the scene where the little girl is running through the city, where all the wires from the claymores are!

Couldn't stand this movie to tell you the truth...

It was overly anti-Serbian. American, Nato guy that can't be shot by sniper = good, all Serbs in the movie = bad.

Which clearly was not the case.


There were numerous Serbs that were forced into the Serb army unwillingly, and actually risked their and their families lives to save as many people as they could. I know this as my friend's father did exactly that...and get threatened for having a "non_serb" wife.







On the other note, yes the depictions of massacres, grave ditches, and the general slaughter of Bosnians and Croats is very much true (yes it happened to all 3 sides as well - for Mr. CW if he's lurking but can't log in Embarrassed)

Kaysaar - totally agree. Such amazing action, with an epic soundtrack too. Perfect in the cinemas, but now I'd like to go and see it in IMAX Big smile

I have seen this movie. A good movie which I recommend as well.
 
Funniest part of the movie was when the South Korean Generals showed the younger brother a propaganda picture of the older brother as leader of the North Korean 'Flag Unit', damn that cracked me up.LOL
 
Can't stop crying in the final scene when the younger brother monologues to his dead brother.  I have to say the best film ever about the Korean War so far.  It wasn't an war movie about a glorious military triumph, it was about a family and what they had to go through to survive a war, and as a nation which is also a family as in collection of many such families. 
 
What surprised me most was that how critical it was of atrocities caused by both side, even more so on South Korean part since the one of the main character defected because of it which is a huge part of the plot.  A moment for me to refresh myself that least South Korea no longer under military dictatorships.
 
Visually the last battle scene was pretty impressive for me.  I know it wasn't much far from gritty shaky cinematography of other recent Hollywood war movie like The Thin Red Line and Blackhawk Down and such.  But when it becomes the bayonet trench war fight, both sides gets soaked in blood and covered in mud, from uniforms to faces, that you can't even tell who's on whose side, only thing you can separate any figure out of blood and mud are shiny white eyeballs and teeth.  That at that point, I don't think they cared much about either communism or capitalism, most of the had no idea what they were anyway.
 
I'm gonna introduce another Korean War movie, Welcome to Dongmakgol (2005)
 
I guess if anyone can make a feel good comedic movie about the Korean War, it might as well be the Koreans, right?  This movie has very childlike magic moments that makes me proud.
 
 
actually you can watch it in YourTube.
