It had been at least 10 years, and it was as good as I remember it. =D
My brother left halfway through because it was "too weird" for him, but my sister absolutely loved it.

Last movie I saw was Downfall, the one with the famous Hitler scene that's parodied everywhere

It's actually a very good film IMO

Oh, thanks for responding. Maybe I will check out For a Few Dollars More, then!


In other news, I watched Frozen and it was ugh. But that's not very surprising.
I also watched American Hustle and the acting, visuals, and music were very good. It was entertaining and fun to watch for sure. Other than that though, there's not much to say. And I feel like the character development felt off and weird. Especially Amy Adams' character's intentions made no sense or were confusing at times. I think it tried to do too much. It should've been more focused. But not looking too deeply into it, it's very entertaining to watch.

I liked Frozen, personally. It was a fun little romp, good songs, and I liked the character of Elsa and what kinds of conflict she had to go through.

Fearing ones own power is a really interesting character trait, I can dig it. X-Men is the only other place I've really seen it done.

I liked the visuals of Frozen. Pretty good animation. But I thought the plot was the same thing as all the other movies! And yeah the music was nice and catchy. But I don't think it was very original because a lot of the tunes are very familiar already.

Nearly every teenage girl in my vicinity is obsessed with its soundtrack. It's a bit unnerving.

Frozen was the last movie I watched, and... I don't get what's so great about it.

The absurdity of the premise was kind of off-putting, especially: so, princess with ice magic accidentally injures her sister, and some trolls have to heal the sister by making her forget about the ice magic. Sounds reasonable. Then, apparently, the ice princess's powers supposedly can get really dangerous in the future if she gets too scared, so they... scare her. Into not being scared. And then they decide to lock the ice princess away to learn to control her powers. Er... kind of heartless, but... OK. But they've got to lie to the sister? Why? And then they... lock the sister in the castle? OK, it's not explicitly said that she was locked in, but she sure did seem over-excited about having the windows and doors open and "finally [having] a chance" at finding a boyfriend, or something.

So the ice princess's parents die in a boat or something. Tragic. Then the ice princess becomes the ice queen, and apparently she has to keep her powers a secret from the citizens too. Because, of course, it's not like they could have, you know, played it up as a good thing from the time she was a child. So she sort of succeeds, but then she gets into a fight with her sister, loses her protective gloves, accidentally freezes some things, gets treated like a monster, and runs off. WOW! I DIDN'T SEE THAT ONE COMING!

People make mistakes, but the amount of stupidity needed to create this scenario is ludicrous. All of this could have been prevented if the sister was just told, "Hey, by the way, your sister is training to control mysterious ice powers she has." Or if the citizens were told, "Hey, the princess has really wonderful ice powers that are going to bring us good fortune in the future!" Or if the parents and trolls didn't use scare tactics. The number of stupid decisions required for the conflict to happen is too large for me to suspend disbelief.

The rest of the movie was just... mediocre. Not bad, but not special.

What if there was an open-source movie. Just think about it.

Actually, someone is crowdfunding exactly that:

https://cloud.blender.org/gooseberry/

They call it "open production" and "open animation". I get the impression that they just mean that they're using "open source" software, as opposed to being free/libre culture, but I could be wrong.

I watched Blade and Blade II again recently. I still need to rewatch Blade Trinity but I'm watching Stargate SG-1 which has caught my interest a lot more. The trilogy is still fairly interesting though and after not having watched them in quite awhile I realized just how bad the events of the first two movies actually were for the vampires.

Since a friend knew I was on a recent Street Fighter kick, we watched the Street Fighter II animated movie. It took awhile to get anywhere, then a lot of things were just written off since I think the people behind it realized that they must have an over the top anime battle finish. It was silly fun.

I saw The Grand Budapest Hotel today. There was a guy in front of me in the audience who was younger than me and wearing a three-piece suit. I can't say I was surprised.

Amazing Spiderman 2.
It was really bad.

It has a lot of issues but one thing that stood out to me is that it was one of the first movies where it had a basically 100% blatantly bad soundtrack. First of all, they used Electro as an excuse to shoot fake dubstep because that's what the kids are into these days I guess (I'm not kidding. It was literally playing music every time he shot electricity or anything) but there was one scene where Electro got all mad at Spiderman because he really liked Spiderman before but Spiderman didn't remember his name so the soundtrack started playing some song where it was whispering thoughts from the perspective of electro. Like, it wasn't audible thoughts from Electro, it was actually in the soundtrack. It was whispering things like "he lied to me, he's using me, he hates-a-me" and then it finally builds up to a line in the song that goes "SPIDER MAN'S MY ENEMY" and then he does a big electricity thing and the fake dubstep drops and it's supposed to be cool but it was seriously the most awkward fight scene I've ever seen.
I'm sure you could find the song somewhere, it was just bizarre.

Star Trek uh...Nemesis, I think. The villain was dumb.

Oh but if it counts, then the Malaysian Dub of Return of Cooler, the DBZ movie.

... For being a crappy song it sure does have some star power behind it haha. Pharrell and Hans of all people.

Man I'm digging this too. I sure hope this isn't the exact song you meant because it's pretty kicking. There's got to be a different song on the OST that's similar but worse.

Dat atmosphere.

Edit: Nope, second half blatantly has exactly the words bit that Ashan speaks of. 5:12 it starts.

I disagree Ashan this is a pretty neat combination of orchestral and electro. The vocal samples are a little bit cringey when they become clearer at that time stamp, but otherwise quite nice.

I tried finding the song and came across that song too but it's not it. It sounds similar, but it was way cornier, particularly in context of the scene. That song has some kind of whispering, but in the scene it had slower whispering that actually said the lines I mentioned. It was literally singing a song about how electro was mad at Spiderman for not being his best friend or something.

Cross post from zee Tumblr:
Finally got around to watching the second Hobbit movie~

They did sooooo well omg. I’m just so happy they fixed all the problems I had both with the original cartoon movie and the book itself.

Giving more character to the main company beyond just Thorin and Bilbo, it’s really quite neat how many of the dwarves they’re giving these memorable scenes.

And the barrel scene was so freaking great, such a good take on it. And Smaug was pretty great (personally I think I like the voice from the cartoon better there, but eh, little nitpicks. Benedict did ALRIGHT just, a certain kind of flair was missing for me.)

The cave scene though was of course a million times better in Jackson's version with everything they added, such an elaborate setup for the end of the movie.

And it’s pretty neat to see they even fit in what Gandalf was up to during the Misty section of the story (from what I understand it was related in a different story outside of The Hobbit)

Just. The decision to turn the story into not one but three movies couldn’t have been better. They’re able to really detail all parts of the story and go more in depth than they ever could with a single movie.

And it was neat seeing Legolas and getting a Gimli name drop and just aaaaaaaaa.

I’m very okay with LotR keeping alive the fantasy genre, I just hope we get more good stuff. (The adaptation of Eragon was pretty heartbreaking tbh)

Typically it's a good idea to drop some thoughts on the movie so this isn't just a name drop thread! Though to be honest I'm just ravenous to hear opinions on this movie anyway since I love it so much <3

The Red Letter Media guys did a review of The Amazing Spiderman 2. They explained a lot of why it was such a dumb movie.

I enjoyed it
It was a bit confusing when Madoka was there and everyone just accepted it
Then stuff was explained and implied, so everything balanced out

Unexpected ending

That cake song though....
IS TALKHAUS THE CAKE?

Yeah totally, it's a really great mystery kind of movie because you're left in suspense and wondering what the heck for so long before they finally drop the curtain and then you're like "Oh. OH. OH NOOOOOOO..."

I really need to get around to watching the rest of the Madoka movies, as I've only watched the first one(Which, when I think about it, was probably the last movie I watched). I did enjoy the first one, but probably not as much as the original series.
