Last movie you watched?

Postby frickinawesum » 9 years ago

Oh man, i watched Alice in Wonderland a couple of weeks ago and i think it wasn't bad but dunno what happened there that it kinda lacked some of that Burton's magic doses of insanity, like the VFX were great and stuff, even watched it in 3D (:3), but for some reason i didn't find them as astounding and/or 'special' as i thought they would be /:

The story weeell, it was weird indeed, considering that it was the continuity of the Alice in Wonderland first adventure, and it had a really good cast that helped in the development of the plot. Ever seen the 'In Treatment' TV series? well that's our not-so-little-anymore Alice haha and she is amazing in the role of Sophie :O
While watching the movie I didn't get bored or anything, still i ended up considering just a plain ok. What ya think?

Some Jethro Tull thing.


The Problem with Alice In Wonderland was that there was a gigantic built up to a climax that just fell flat. Easily the worst fight scene I've EVER seen.

Kick-Ass

I thought it was great! I was getting kind of jaded on movies, but now I'm excited, especially to see the Scott Pilgrim movie, even though it doesn't come out for a while. Anyway, Kick-Ass really broke away from the standard movie template of how scenes go and what's to be expected from them. It was really moving. The only problem I had with it was
the moral absolutism. The fact that Hit Girl and Big Daddy would just remorselessly kill anyone was kind of unsettling.
Other than that, I thought it was terrific and would recommend it to anyone.

Hey that's right! i think you actually pin-point the thing, it was really anti-climatic /:

How to Train Your Dragon.

It's 5 a.m. and anything I say will be incoherent, but in a nutshell, I love pretty much everything about this movie.

I haven't been to the movies in a while, but I believe it's 8 euro's here. And 9 for 3D.

Maybe I'm gonna see this new Robin Hood coming out May 13th. Don't know for sure though as I wonder if it isn't yet another boring remake.

The last movie I watched was Highlander, I really don't keep up-to-date with the current releases of films... or games or music or any media actually.

also I think that one of the mainstream cinemas near me it's something like £5 - £9.
and I think that in the art house cinema near me it's something like £8 - £17, though in that one you do get obscure films, subtitles instead of dubs, big arm chair things instead of crappy seats and no annoying kids or other annoying stuff.

that art house cinema recently did a showing of the whole lord of the rings trilogy back to back, I was going to go but I would probably die...

Alright, now I wanted to know so I looked it up:

Normal: Ranging from €8,80 to €9.50 depending on ordering it online or at the box office
In the morning (before noon): €5,00

Imax (3D)
Normal: €11,80 to €12,50
In the morning: €7,80

Unlimited for one month (normal only): €18,00


Now I remember why I barely go to the movies at all.
Terribly expensive.

Ticket prices depend on the theatre here. The two nearest my house are either $5-ish or $8, $10-ish for 3D. There's also the "dollar" theatre which is closer to $2 these days, but you have to wait for the movie to run its course in the normal theatres before seeing it there. And yeah, concession prices are exorbitant, I don't know why anyone in their right mind would spend $3 on a little candy bar.

For REAL! it's well known now that you spend more on food -popcorn, soda, candy, slurpees and whatnot- at the movie theater then for the actual movie, the business of it is right there, it's insane! although they 'disguise' the thing with combos and stuff you end up spending more than you planned

when going to the movies i just buy the ticket and go straight to the seats, no lining up at the candy bar, no popcorn, no cravings ;_;

Same here. If I need to eat something during the movie, I'll buy it somewhere else and sneak it in >_>

On-topic: watched The Hunchback of Notre Dame (the Disney cartoon) last night. That's like my favorite Disney movie, it makes me sad that no one acknowledges its existence.

woah, I haven't seen that movie since like... wheeeew i dunno! although i'm not much of a Disney fan, i think i've managed to see all of them "Classics". However, I didn't like The Princess and the Frog that much, wouldn't actually consider it part of the Princess classics now.. it was clearly an attempt to bring 2D traditional animation back again, but totally failed right there /:

I watched (the new) Robin Hood yesterday.

It was pretty good. I'm somewhat disappointed that it wasn't focused on the outlaw part, but that has been used quite often already, so I do understand it.
It did match the history though (apart from one thing) so that's nice.

I would give it a 7.5/10, maybe an 8.

In theaters, also the Robin Hood movie. Wasn't what I was expecting at all (Robin Hood Begins, eh?) but it was better than I thought it'd be.

Last night I watched Flash Point with Donnie Yen, who as it turns out is basically a super awesome kung fu action dude that's huge in China but who I'd barely heard of. I guess he was the villain in Shanghai Nights. But yeah, kick ass movie and I'm gonna try to find more Donnie Yen stuff.
The nature of the signature is significant and natural.

Yes! finally went to the movies and was going to watch Clash of the Titans in 3D, but we didn't get to the last show in time sooo my friend and I also watched Robin Hood instead...

And welll... just as you guys say, it wasn't as great as I've heard, at least in my opinion it went kind of slow-paced at the beginning and got annoyingly confusing several times /: There were parts in the movie that were either dumb or hideously cliché..and just as my friend said: after watching LoTR, there is hardly any battle and/or VFX that can impress me anymore

Also, this movie made me want to read or dig deeper into history (which I just try to avoid as much as possible, not one of my greatest subjects S: ) to see how close to the facts it really is, though I'm betting I just won't do that

In the cinema the last movie I saw was The Prince of Persia - The Sands of Time.
I liked the movie but it really doesn't have much substance.

On my laptop the last movie I saw was Daybreakers.
A vampire movie set in the future where blood supplies [i.e. humans] are running out
and something needs to be done.
Yeah... the movie was ok... I probably wont watch it again. Gory in places and the end is
a tad up in the air for my liking but the idea was good.

The Last Airbender.
It was...okay. The graphics were nice, the acting made me die inside.
The characters were bland, the acting got a little better near the end, and it all together felt too rushed for my tastes.
