Machete Kills

That was incredibly fun.  If there's a single complaint my wife and I had it was that there was less practical blood and gore effects.  As far as the performances, creativity, and pure insanity of the movie it was awesome.  I want the next sequel as soon as humanly possible.

I heard the title of the next one will be Machete Kills Again in Space.

Yes, yes it is.  There is already a trailer, it played at the beginning of this movie.

Little late to the discussion but finally saw Gravity tonight (glad I saw it in 3D). Very intense. Sandra Bullock does an amaaazing job too. I haven't seen all her movies (most notably The Blind Side), but I wouldn't be surprised if this was her best dramatic role to date. I wish the academy would've waited to give her an Oscar for this role. The visuals, sfx & sound are all so well done too. I'm a sucker for minimalist movies, and this certainly qualifies. The movie it reminded me most of was actually Buried. Don't let that discourage anyone from seeing it. I imagine most will find Gravity 10x more powerful than Buried.

As for space accuracy... I'm not huge into space stuff, so I never rolled my eyes once. Even if I were, I can't imagine it detracting me from the movie.

Sympathy for Mr Vengeance.

Watched it because it was directed by Park Chan-Wook (hope I spelled that right) director of Oldboy. I figured the story might be unique and unexpected as well, and it delivers on that, although not quite as enthralling as the previous film mentioned. Still it was a good watch though.


I meant to watch Sympathy for Lady Vengeance as well, it actually looked better, but it dropped off my queue when I went to go watch it. :( Anyone see it by any chance?

I saw Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist last week.  It was a really boring movie.  It was predictable; I knew 10 minutes in how it would go.  Michael Cera will start to fall for Kat Dennings, then there will be a scene where the ex who broke his heart will want him back, and for a moment it will seem like he's going to go for it and the new girl will be disappointed, but then he'll change his mind.  It's such a stock story that I couldn't watch more than 30 minutes at a time without getting bored.  The movie has no arc or structure or anything.  It's just "a bunch of stuff happens for 90-120 minutes and then the credits roll."

The Hole
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Great review of The Hole, Charles. I really like that movie. It's not Joe Dante's best, but it certainly shows that he's still got it and there is no reason he should be shoved out of the regular movie business like he is now.

Also good to see somebody else who doesn't like Phantasm. Aside from a very few cool things (The Tall Man himself, the silver spheres), the movie is a goddamn mess and CLEARLY has no idea what it is doing.

21 Jump Street.

I'm a big fan of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs but this is/was still WAY better than it had any right to be.

Star Trek: Into Darkness

Another fun action orientated entry in the Trek reboot. The big four of Kirk, Spock, Scotty and Bones are all starting to feel comfortable now... With the exception of Spock, who has had the most drastic character shift from the original source material, everybody else passes just fine as younger versions of the TOS crew. Urban continues to stand out with his stellar homage to DeForest Kelley. While Cumberbatch has undeniable presence as the villian, most of the Wrath of Khan parallels are clunky as best... and unfortunately the script doesn't give him a whole lot to do. Without his backstory with Kirk, any reason to call him "Kahn" is simply for convenience sake. Still, things move along at a brisk pace, the action scenes are well shot and easy to follow and everything is beautiful to look at. It's been over 15 years since a Trek movie actually had a good story to tell, but at least they have returned to churning out reliable popcorn flicks.

I re-watched Event Horizon last month, having not watched it since 87, I agree %100 with it being massively stupid.  Thought on a bigger screen it would be more scary, but nope, still just stupid, and since I've seen more gore since 87 all the blood and guts were just boring.

Watched Pacific Rim last night (3D Blu-Ray).  Loved it, very fun movie.  3D conversions are usually disappointing but this one was done properly.  This is how you do a big dumb formulaic monster invasion movie.  Even the clich├ęs work, and there are a lot of them...

Trick 'r Treat always gets my vote for the absolute best Halloween-related movie. Everything about it (premise, story, characters, designs, etc.) is so entwined with the holiday that it simply couldn't exist without it. It's fun, it's scary, and it's practically bleeding orange and black (but not in an overbearing way). I love it to pieces, and always force others to watch it around this time of year.

I also love the heck out of Event Horizon (it's a freaky movie, and I will never get tired of seeing Sam Neill do genre films), but even I would be hard pressed to defend its intellectual side.
