I don't see a specific movie thread in this forum. So, I am starting one.
Black Swan is about a perfectionist dancer with a twist or two. Posted Image


The things I don't know could fill libraries.

I love movies, but man... I don't really want to discuss anything about those that I didn't see. Since spoilers go hand-in-hand with discussions. Separate threads, I think, are better.

I put up a warning for spoilers.
Also, I have not seen one topic for a specific film?!? So, go forth and post please. I am more into music and would love to hear (read) about good movies.Posted Image

That's not what I meant. Before going into topic you don't know what movie/show would be discussed.

It would be better for a general topic about movies to put a sign "no spoilers please". But maybe it's just me since I'm too anal about spoilers.

I saw Mission Impossible 3, and it was really good, everything you'd expect.

I saw the Black Swan last year and I have to say from the previews and the actual movie itself was one of the few movies in a while that I thought was actually interesting that I have seen in a while.

I frequently watch a certain show about a certain group of pastel coloured equines, but that's a story for another time. xD

Michael Bay's Transformers. Don't remember which films. Just remember that I hated them.

Watched the first half of the original A-Team, though. I enjoyed that.

I wasn't a big fan either. The 1986 animated movie seemed a lot better in comparison to the Michael Bay films IMO.

All of the other characters of the A-Team are great, to be sure, but I declare that nobody has a stronger screen presence than Mr. T.

I always loved the B.A. / Murdoch relationship.

And yes, the 1986 Transformers film is superior in every way.

Thanks Robman. Thanks LeoTCK.

C'mon the 3rd one was awesome.

Hehe I'll admit that it was better, but they all kinda felt like "generic action movie with big robots" to me. They weren't terrible movies, but they weren't like amazing Transformers movies.

Yeah! That's like a movie that is both awesome and perfectly embodies the 80s to me. xD All star cast, great tunes, robotic carnage. It had everything. xD

The 1986 Transformers made me cry when I was real young, when Prime was killed. It was just so sad B)

Yeah that was a pretty serious scene, I remember Nelson Shin saying he wanted it to be like a real person dying. Still sad even now, even though he didn't really die I guess. xD

Yeah the animated one was the best no question, but the 3rd live action film topped, BOTH the previous live action ones, hands down.
I was glued to the screen lol. B)

But yes that scene with Prime in the 80's animated version, was very moving, I will admit. I like serious scenes in animated films for some reason.


Yes it was the best of the 3 comparatively. The 2nd one was just really bad. xD

Yes I agree, it was a great scene. ^^ The fight scene between Megatron and Prime prior to that is still one of my favorite fight scenes ever.

The soundtrack to that movie too is awesome as well. Stan Bush, NRG, Weird Al, some really great songs in there. xD

On topic, I watched Full Metal Jacket a second ago, still it's a very good first half of the movie. B)


Aw sweet, Full Metal Jacket. ^^ Yes the 2nd one was way too much human junk and way less Transformers to make a happy ratio.

Ironically the last movie I watched was like last week with my son, GoBots the movie. xD Seriously I was looking through my old VHS tapes for my son and I still had GoBots the movie. xD Ironically to parallel the Transformer: The Movie, <SPOILER THOUGH I DOUBT ANYONE CARES>Leader One "dies" during the GoBots movie.</SPOILER> I doubt it was intentionally similar, but still funny when you think about how GoBots were considered the lesser K-Mart brand Transformers back in the day.

BULLSHIT! You wouldn't know a good first half of a movie if it came up behind you and fucked you in the ass!

Um... I mean...

Yeah, I liked Full Metal Jacket too. Both halves. Though it's true the first half was more entertaining. Probably not what Kubrick had intended (he had actually attempted to portray R. Lee Ermey as an incompetent drill instructor, but he's the most impressive character in the film).

My favorite scene is Surfin' Bird.

And about the live action Transformers movies, they are all big budget garbage. Not ever watching them. What a travesty. Watch G1 instead.

Thanks Robman. Thanks LeoTCK.

I recently watched the horror film The Last Winter, it's a really good movie. Pretty scary, even though the ending got a little bit ahead of itself and ended up being pretty cheesy, but otherwise it was a fairly scary horror film.

But on TV...I'm with Jinroh on this one B)

I've become a bit of a CSI freak over the last two weeks. There's just no decent American dramas on here right now, so with 10+ seasons CSI will do.

Eyeball Seesaw.

The three "abduction" episodes are probably the best mythology of the series with One Breath being the best tv episode ever.

Futurama season 1 remastered DVD.

The picture is amazing. Free of compression artifacts and blockyness, unlike The Simpsons DVDs. I know it's not Blu-ray resolution, but it almost looks like it. That's usually one of the things which separates DVD from Blu-ray, aside from resolution is the amount of compression used.
