For the first time with my family...and I must say it was alot better than I expected.

What did you guys think of this...

it seems like DiCaprio's char was insane but I'm not sure if the people in the island fucked him up. Definitely gonna watch this again.

Also watched the Basterds movie with Brad Pitt and that was great too...LOL at Hector stabbing the fuck out of people with his knife like rambo..was pretty brutal movie.

Shutter Island was the shit in my opinion..I've seen it twice and would watch it again..

Watched it with the wife a few weeks ago. It was decent, but I honestly expected it to be different. Zombieland was pretty good. Watched Astroboy with my two boys the other night, that was better than I expected. Sex Drive was extremely funny one to watch. I want to check out Clash of the Titans real soon.

Avatar isn't worth watching if it isn't in 3D because honestly, the storyline is kinda bland.

Yea I dont believe Avatar lived up to the hype. It literally took me 5 times to watch it because I kept falling asleep on it.

You would have to nail my balls down to a stool to get me to set and watch Avatard. Those shitty looking cat people never once peeked my interest.

As for Shutter Island.....honestly, I don't care what anybody says Coppola ripped it off from William Peter Blattey.

Blattey is the author of The Exorcist and he made a film called The Ninth Configuration.....SI is a direct ripoff of that film.

If you get a chance to ever see The Ninth Configuration...do so.....it is awesome!

It's not that I hated SI...I just believe in giving a film it is heavily "influenced" by a little credit....and I have never seen not one mention of it.


Also....I would not wipe my ass with that new Clash of the Titans.....very few things in life have been as disapointing for me as that was!

They regulated Bubo down to a one line joke! WTF is a Clash of the Titans film without Bubo the owl???

I hated it!

Snoop
Who here saw Inception? Thoughts?
Lil-lightsout
I thought Avatar was amazing, great story and visuals. Damn haters, lol.

Did not see Inception, I'll probably wait for it on BD.

I watched Avatar on blue ray. The shooting of the movie was amazing. But the story was nothing special nor original.

Pretty much.

Groundbreaking special effects + recycled storyline = average movie.

Considered seeing Avatar in the theaters but never did. Now the chances of me seeing it on DVD are roughly on par with Bluto Blutarsky's GPA.

Walked out of Shutter Island. At some point it was like who gives a shit. Hate movies that just get lost in their own bullshit. As far as I could tell though, he was an ex-inmate who was struggling with the guilt over not killing his crazy wife before she killed their kids. He was off his meds or something and had been lured back to the island to get further treatment by his partner (Mark Ruffalo), who was either really a doctor or some old friend who had died long ago.

Inglourious Basterds was THE SHIT. Favorite Tarantino movie ever (other than maybe True Romance but he only wrote that). That shoot-out in the bar where the guy figures out his accent is inauthentic was fantastic. Brad Pitt speaking Italian and fucking Hitler wearing a cape were hilarious.

Anyone see A Prophet? I've got that now from Netflix. Hear it's great, but it's nearly 3 hours. Hard to watch a flick that long in one sitting anymore.

Saw Inception with the wife last night, we both thought it was excellent. Watched Kick Ass the night before on BD, that movie was awesome!
BigG
Im one of the few that thought Avatar was only 5/10 or 6/10. I watched it in a 3D theatre, groundbreaker graphics...but thought it was average.

Didn't Tarantino do Pulp Fiction? It's hard for me to imagine a movie better than that one, but then again, I've never seeen Inglourious Bastards.

Yeah, he did. I love Pulp Fiction, and Reservoir Dogs, and both Kill Bills (especially part 1 with Gogo Yabari), but to me, Basters was the best of them all.

Man...I'm a huge QT fan....but IMHO IB was the worst of all of his films. NOW....that's not to say I think it is a terible movie....I mean with QT...his worst is still miles ahead of anything else out there.

For me it was awful due to the fact that this was the first time QT had ever handled actual historical figures and situations....all of his prior films were fiction. I just cannot watch a film that twists history to the degree he did....I found it lame.

With most of QT's work...he makes you actually almost like his villians....Marcelis Wallice/Vincent & Jules, Ordell Robbie, Bill. IMHO...the Nazi's were just too easy a target for his type of villian...too easy to hate.

There was no satisfaction with the way they handled the most hated Nazi....they carved in his forehead...big deal....he still lived. I expect more from that situation.

AND....the end was so over the top it was laughable...which I admit may have been what he was going for....but none the less....we all know it is nowhere near what actually happened and that really irratated me.

I will say it did have classic QT dialouge and excellent scenes....I just think it's his weakest film. It's the only QT film I do not own.
