(ok, ok, last movie seen was actually Avatar, but there's plenty of threads for that)

 

Maybe a thread for "the last time you saw Avatar?" ;)

 

Sherlock Holmes.

I like where they went with it.

I really liked the trailer for This is It!.  The movie was just too slowly paced for me...  I was a big MJ fan back in the day, but I fell of the wagon once it started going down crazy street.  Bad was the beginning of the end for me, I think.  There's no way I would have gone to the concert- so maybe the movie wasn't really for me.

"Death at a Funeral."

Watched this last night, and laughed until tears came out of my eyes. I kept waking up my 9 month old son because i couldn't stop laughing. This has to be the funniest movie i've seen in years and years.

I'm envious of the chap who came up with that title.

Last film seen in the cinema was Avatar.  3D was great, movie was Meh.  Last film watched at homes was The Wrestler - Great film.

War does not make one great.

A Clockwork Orange.

On a bit of a Kubrick kick.

For an interesting Kubrick, try Killer's Kiss.

The Good Shepherd. Interesting film that tries to depict the true emotionless, sacrificial life of a spy. As it stands, waaaay too long (168 min), but well made. DeNiro directed (yes that DeNiro!), but the film was originally for John Frankenheimer (would have likely been his masterpiece). ***

Sorry captin, just hosted a similar thread without even noticing. Not trying to steal your thunder by doing so sir BTW :-(

Don't worry about it.

Hamlet (1996): Yes, I know it's four hours long. It is definitely worth it though. Shakespearean characters actually breathe before your eyes in 70mm. Light years ahead of the atrocious 1990 version.****

Last night,

Blade Runner (ADM Edit - His audio preference)

Blade Runner (Workprint)

Blade Runner (The Final Cut)

 

Can't seem to watch just one version of this film. Anytime I get the urge to watch it, I have to sit through multiple versions. I still have not found one that completely satisfies.

 That's interesting.  I thought I would care about all 5 edits on the 4 Disc set, but I can barely tell the difference between Final and the DC cut we've had for all of these years.  I guess I'm more of a casual fan than I thought.

There was nothing on the Telly box!

I don't get the hate for ST9 - it's not one of the best but it certainly isn't one of the worst.

I tried watching Land of the lost - only made it about halfway, it's terribly lame and kind of boring.

Then I watched Outlander - which turned out to be much better than I was expecting.

I thought I would be watching all 5 versions of BR like mad. I still haven't watched the workprint all the way through.

The Fifth Element-way too cartoony for my taste. Enjoyable, but very light on story.

sex, lies, and videotape-I really enjoyed it, can't believe it took me this long to see.

Modern Times-the farewell to the Tramp. Chaplin is timeless.

I Was a Male War Bride-four words: Cary Grant...in drag...

"Count Dracula" with Christopher Lee directed by Jess Franco is probably the best in both regards. Dracula is genuinly frightening, but with a depth that isn't romantic but more historical. Lots of great language from the novel, and a tour de force performance from Lee.

The only thing stopping it from being the clear and undisputed best Dracula was the ridiculous overuse of the zoom lens. It's like a home movie in some spots.

That's just my opinion, and to be fair, there are two Dracula adaptaions I havent seen yet (Dernhelm Elliot and Jack Palance as the Count).

I've just seen both the Elliott and Palance Versions and in my opinion both are utterly awful (I was particularly surprised by the Palance one because I've wanted to see it since I was very small after hearing how well regarded it was).

Palance's Dracula is a very gelded Count, no magic powers but still vulnerable to light (it doesn't kill him but just makes him stand still and look worried) he spent most of his time either going down stairs in an undramatic fashion or throwing men and furniture around while hissing.

The film doesn't seem to know which half of the 19th Century it's in either which is a bit bizarre.

It's clearly the template for much of the nonsense in the Crapolla Dracula.

The DVD transfer was hideous too, the credits are almost unreadable, the colour saturation is beyond belief and everything is shifted to magenta.

The Denholm Elliott one is like the first rehearsal of a very amateur stage production. Harker/Renfield (the two characters are merged) is so over the top he is borderline interesting but everyone else seems to be struggling to remember their lines. There are a few interesting shots scattered in there but only worth seeing if watching every version of Dracula is your quest.

The Mystery and Imagination box set however is well worth the money just to see the incredibly Peakeian Uncle Silas adaptation.

However I wasn't that impressed with the Jess Franco one either, the nearest Dracula to the look in the book but in most other respects it's as silly as Blood For Dracula but nowhere near as much fun.

So far the nearest to the book I've seen is the Louis Jordan one but even that takes great liberties with the source material but it does have much of the flavour of the novel.

The real surprise however was the first half of the much derided Patrick Bergin modern version (the second half goes right of the rails). I dreaded putting the disc into my player after hearing how awful it was and the second half is pretty awful but the first part wasn't that bad.

Even though it's updated to the present it keeps reasonably close to the source material though the acting isn't very top drawer.

Don't know why he bothers to travel to Romania when he seems to already be there (perhaps that was an eleventh hour insert because it makes no sense at all).

The ballet Dracula Pages From A Virgin's Diary is a great laugh (even if it does go down hill once Lucy get's dusted).

Chinatown- was on last night, I love Jack Nicholson in this movie. I also love the fact that every time his nose comes close to healing: somebody punches it.

"The other versions will disappear. Even the 35 million tapes of Star Wars out there won’t last more than 30 or 40 years. A hundred years from now, the only version of the movie that anyone will remember will be the DVD version [of the Special Edition], and you’ll be able to project it on a 20’ by 40’ screen with perfect quality. I think it’s the director’s prerogative, not the studio’s to go back and reinvent a movie." - George Lucas

"I goddamn near lost my nose. I like it. I like breathing through it. And I still think you're hiding something."-best Jack line ever.

The Great Dictator-only Chaplin could take on Hitler through comedy.

Jaws-no matter how much you analyze it..this really is a great movie. The beginning drags on purposefully to lull you into a false sense of comfort. Then the pace starts to build until the real movie starts on the Orca.
