I just watched Dark City last night. A couple of weeks ago I watched Gattaca. I watched both of them because I heard good stuff about them and mostly because Netflix suggested them to me based on what I like. And I suddenly remembered watching these on TV in my early teens. I never really thought about them that much, they aired on a channel that often showed foreign indie movies. La Cinquieme/France 5/Arte whatever the channel is called now. I often caught a movie already started and watch until the end but I never tried to find a title.

As I watched Dark City I couldn't remember the story but I remembered the ambiance and some little details and realized that these movies contributed to shape my current taste in movies.

I always liked Gattaca. I know it gets a lot of crap from people, but I enjoyed it.

The theatrical cut has an opening narration that spoils the ever-loving fuck out of the movie, which was apparently included at the last-minute at the studio's behest. In fact, I'm pretty sure the speech is lifted from a late point in the film. (I just watched the intro on Youtube and all I can say is "Why would you do that?!?!?!")

My experience with Dark City was similar to yours. The first time I watched it was during a movie marathon in high school. I was so tired and barely cognizant of what was happening onscreen by that point that a lot of it didn't register, but the film still made an impression, so when I watched it years later, the story was unfamiliar, but certain details and the feel and atmosphere had remained with me.

Anyway, to reiterate: if you watch Dark City, either go with the director's cut, or mute the sound until Kiefer Sutherland looks at his watch!

Dave Grohl is fucking awesome. This was his speech from the Grammys last night, when the Foo Fighters won for best Rock Performance. In my opinion, they were the only ROCK BAND nominated for a ROCK award. I'm sorry, Mumford & Sons and Coldplay are NOT rock. Anyways, I think he makes the best point here about music.

"To me this award means a lot because it shows that the human element of music is what's important. Singing into a microphone and learning to play an instrument and learning to do your craft, that's the most important thing for people to do... It's not about being perfect, it's not about sounding absolutely correct, it's not about what goes on in a computer. It's about what goes on in here [your heart] and what goes on in here [your head]."

Oh, and, Grohl was cut off with LMFAO in the midst of giving this speech. Bullshit.

I saw this twice. I went last week with my cousin and enjoyed it, then I went again with a friend and noticed a few things. During most of the movie we are watching what was filmed by Andrew's cam, then by the tower we watch through the cames Andrew pics up from the tourists, but when they are both at the plaza with the indian statue and Matt flies away, what came got a close up of his face? And all the things that happened just before? Andrew's first cam was crappy so the video quality was crappy, if these were a bunch of phones, I think they also should have been of a slightly lesser quality than his regular cam.

I also saw the Grey last week, which was weird. It felt like 2 movies smashed together. I mean I enjoyed it, but the scenes with his wife felt very different from the scenes with the guys getting taken out 1 by 1 by the wolves.

I'm enjoying Misfits. The odd tits are nice, but the stories are interesting and some of the powers are kind of off-the-wall, like the black chick's "turn men into rapists" power. The black chick is also super hot, hopefully she'll do full frontal at some point.

The reason I keep saying "black chick" is because the only person's name I've learned, despite watching about 12 episodes, is Curtis's (the black dude). Can't remember any of their other names to save my life.

I just wish they'd get a bit more creative, the episodes are all named "Episode X".

I think it's a perfectly fine movie, definitely better than the Hulk movie that came after it, as long as one is willing to accept the lengthy running time and visual flourish Ang Lee brings to it.

Conan renewed through 2014:

http://www.avclub.com/articles/tbs-renews-conan-through-2014,69756/

His show is mostly background noise to me now, but it's good to see Conan's new show will outlive his short-lived stunt on The Tonight Show. His ratings still aren't great, but TBS constantly playing The Big Bang Theory before Conan seems to have given the show a boost. Although, it makes me think TBS will try to kick it up a notch by playing an episode of Conan on a tiny screen during the TBBT, or plaster Sheldon's face over Conan's.

My only real problem with this is that Michael Bay completely disregards the core of anything he touches. He misses the point, and his company is just sort of like, "hey, Friday the 13th? That's the hockey mask guy? Okay, remake."

Like... I really don't CARE if anyone rewrites their origin, because it was a shameful Frank Miller ripoff to begin with, just a joke, like who cares? There were ducks from outerspace in the cartoons and comics, and let us not forget the Triceradons. Frankly, that isn't the problem. It's that Michael Bay doesn't know his ass from his elbow, and will not pull this off correctly.

Forgot to mention that the mutagen being of Utrom origin, they were always extraterrestrial in a way. Not alien from space, but still.

With the exception of the Image comics, of course. As bad as the Transformers movies were, I'll take them over Image Turtles any day of the week.

As we look forward to the second half of the year, we are excited about the upcoming releases of The Avengers and Brave, which we believe have tremendous potential to drive value for the Studio and the rest of the company.”

Hey, finally a trailer for that!

A bit dissappointed that it's gone the 'quirky character comedy' route, rather than the 'insane fully realized memetic mutation' route (with Conan O'Brien as Emperor Conan I, LORD OF THE FUTURE, actual timetravel, etc.) But this looks enjoyable too.

The fact that the trailer didn't have anything about limits being pushed to was disheartening, though.

I felt like many little visual bits were "Ask me what it means" moments, or they just didn't mean much at all. I felt the story was all over the place at times, or that some things just didn't make sense.
I will say Heath Ledger (and by proxy, Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Ferrell) was great in it.

I decided to rent the Alien quadrilogy from Netflix. Upon putting in the disc I get to chose between Theatrical Release and Special Edition. Does anybody know what the difference is?
>> No. 32858

Theatrical release is the original shown in theaters. Special edition is basically a directors cut that adds a number of cut scenes that, while not integral to the film, greatly improve the characterization. Careful though, special edition reaches Kurosawa-lengths. Not an easy one to sit down and watch all the way through.
>> No. 32897

Different anon, but watch the theatrical cut and save the director's cut for a second viewing if you really like it?

Rented Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol last night and totally had a blast watching it. I was afraid of being lost on the film, since I've only seen the original Mission Impossible movie, but Ghost Protocol works well independently and clues you in on everything you need to know about Tom Cruise's character, Ethan Hunt, and his loyal band of misfits.

While the movie is more driven by its spectacles than it characters, it's forgiven because the spectacles in the film were really cool and makes you feel like you're on a fun roller coaster ride the whole time. The story was also simple, but Brad Bird throws in all these twist and turns to make it feel fresh, instead of mundane, and makes sure every scene is not wasted. There's also some good subversions as well, such as Ethan walking out of the phone booth like it's about to explode, but only fizzles in the end, which is the opposite of what happens when he walks out of the Kremlin.

I'm disappointed Bird won't return for another MI film, but he left his mark on the franchise and will continued to produce wonderful films in the future--animated or live action. Now I'm wondering if I should give the previous two films a try.

Kevin Smith, the director of such great films like Clerks and... um... Well, anyway, he's getting a show on Hulu:

>Smith will host the new series Spoilers, a half-hour talk show that finds him taking a studio audience along to this summer's biggest films—"on opening day, none of this early bullshit, ain’t doing it like those critics, doing it legit," as Smith puts it in this Wired interview, in keeping with his oft-repeated-since-everyone-hated-Cop Out assertions that critics should have to pay for his movies if they're just going to be jerks who find fault with them.

>"We don’t review movies, we revere movies," Smith elaborates of his "anti-movie review show," a self-described Donahue-style "gabfest" that will find Smith getting the opinions of 50 real movie fans—liberated from under the iron fist of the powerful film critic industry, and the Stalinist dogma of its mightily wielded opinions that have for too long totally directed the course of the American box office—then cramming all of their revere-iews into a 30-minute show that will also find room for still more chatting with celebrity guests, Jason Mewes acting out movie scenes, animated shorts (and jean shorts), and presumably a tangent or 12 from Smith. Finally, a film discussion forum that's unafraid to come right out and call something "awesome."

In his defense, his movies (even his bad ones) have always been popular among a cult audience with, with mere forays into relevance outside of that specific demographic. In his case, traditional movie reviews really aren't that helpful for anyone--people who enjoyed Mallrats are likely going to enjoy Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, and people who hated it probably aren't.

I heard that Theron is awesome in this movie, but that it's like all of her scenes are in a completely different movie from what Stewart is in, because Theron's acting is so much better than Stewart's.

Also, here's something that's bugged me ever since I saw the first trailer:
>Movie trying to say that Stewart's character is somehow going to trump Theron's character in looks at some point in time and be the fairest of them all
Yeeeaaaahh...maybe in 40 years or so, if Theron's character stops doing all of her beauty treatments. And even then it's iffy.

For the record, I do think, in the right lighting and costuming/makeup/whatev, K. Stewart has the potential to be pretty. But putting her next to C. Theron? Nope; girl looks mousey-plain and no amount of costuming/makeup/lighting/whatev can change that.

Finished watching the second season of Sherlock off of PBS' website yesterday and there are no words for how much this series shames the Guy Ritchie films.

I find it interesting that Sherlock and Doctor Who recently ended with the main characters faking their own death and being forced to work back in the shadows. People often draw comparisons between Sherlock and the Doctor, so I'm quite interested in seeing how Steve Moffat handles the similar set-up for these characters next season.

Prometheus opens this Friday, yet, I don't really care. The film looks like every generic sci-fi movie that's been released and the ads have done a terrible job at selling the story. All I'm getting so far is that the generic space crew finds something, hears the annoying sound from the trailer, then they run for their lives. I can't seem to muster up any excitement for the movie like everybody else has.

>>33359
Just finished reading Michael Scott's review for the film and from the sound of it, the movie is one big missed opportunity:

http://dorkmanscott.wordpress.com/2012/06/02/movie-review-snow-white-and-the-huntsman/

He also complained about Kristen Stewart being Kristen Stewart:

>I don’t have any kind of principled hatred of Kristen Stewart, but the girl is monotone incarnate. She has absolutely no screen presence, literally just has the same look on her face the whole movie. We can only gauge her emotions by how many saline tears the makeup department squirted into her eyes before each take. She has little enough to work with, it’s true, but I couldn’t help thinking what a more charming actor — Emma Watson, for example — could have done with the role, with just the odd twinkle of the eye or slight twist of the lip.

Emma Watson is just as bad as Kristen Stewart, she just has more fans.

Also, that's pretty harsh. Kristen Stewart's acting prowess goes way beyond a simple with or without tears version.

For instance, did you know she can portray frustration if she puts her hand on top of her head, or tussles her hair? She has talent!

Dude...how long have you been WATCHING Doctor Who? The Doc has never been a PERFECT pacifist. Hell, 7 had some VERY dark and calculating moments. And either 8 or 9 ended the Time War by, essentially, removing the Daleks and Time Lords from existence. And as much as people like to throw out the whole, OH WELL TENNANT WAS A PACIFIST, I'd like to say HORSESHIT. There are PLENTY of example of him just outright ganking an alien or entire race. Look at Runaway Bride. He gives the spider-woman a chance, she doesn't take it, he wrecks her shit

>Amy Pond, Amy Pond everywhere, all the time, because thatshisfetish.jpg

She was brilliant with the 9th Doctor. She could be selfish, but she was very human and she was an anchor to the Doctor. I liked her in some episodes with Tennant's Doctor, but the love story between her and the Doctor was pushed way too often by tht point and she started acting less "human" and more like a spoiled brat who wanted her boyfriend all to herself. She went downhill for me, though I don't hate her. I'm just tired of how she was pushed down my gullet at times. Donna will always be my favorite new Who companion, followed by Rory.

Rose is my favorite too. Her season with Nine is basically perfect and the only times she really acts like a spoiled brat with Ten is right after he regenerated (you know that hugely surprisingly thing he does when he dies that he never bothered to give her a heads up about) and the Girl in the Mirror, which was written by Moffat fancy that. The "I was a dad once" ; "what?" exchange was kind of expected really because again, he's still dropping new information on her and she's like what? 20-21? yeah it'd shock anyone. I can see why someone might not like her, but her and Donna are tied for my favorite (with Rory close behind)

I think what we take for granted with long-running shows like Doctor Who and so on are that with each new character, or with someone joining in for the first time, things we've known for awhile need to be explained yet again, they don't just know stuff we already know right off the bat. So when Rose didn't know things like that, we can't really blame her.

>Finsihed up "Chuck" on Netflix
I'm trying to pin down when exactly it was this show became awful, and I want to say it was sometime in Season 3. I mean, I still liked the Buy More crew and their weird shenanigans through to the end, but the "serious" parts of the show got TERRIBLE. I hated Chuck, Sarah, Ellie, Devon... most of the cast that wasn't Morgan and the Buy More workers really, I hated them by the end. The creators mention that they explicitly were aiming for 5 seasons so they could do syndication reruns and GOD could you ever tell because this show was stretched out WAY beyond what the basic premise could really manage.
>> No. 33566
>>33562
I still liked it into the fifth season... but after they made the Intersect a kung fu database, the show lost a lot of it's charm. When it was a weird, organic cross referencing intel database trapped in a dude's head, everything was hunky dory, they had the nice hook of "normal guy gets dragged into espionage" etc.

Then, like you said, around the third season, the show started to suffer. Rather than just having Chuck acclimate himself to being a spy... they change what the intersect was to make it even more of a macguffin. It turned into something that gives you skills, instead of being something that gives you information. And after that, the show was only as good as it's villains. So S3 Shaw, and Volkoff in S4 made the show watchable... but even then, Fulcrum was made into part of the Ring... which was beaten through contrivance. Neither group was ever really explained. The show becomes increasingly about the acquisition/exploitation of the new, less interesting Intersect. The fifth season goes in circles, and ends in the worst possible way.

He's okay with letting me borrow his DVD's, so I might start watching them once we buy them. I've admittedly never watched anything on HBO (other than Flight of The Conchords), so I'm not sure if watching the show together would be a good idea or not.

>But we already have the Hollywood version! RDJ's a great Sherlock.

RDJ is a good actor.

Unfortunately Hollywood has never given him an opportunity to be anything but a fucking horrendous Sherlock Holmes.

Does he really need to? It's not exactly a rare viewpoint among Conan Doyle fans. I mean, if you enjoy the movies, okay. I might have enjoyed them if they weren't meant to be Sherlock Holmes. But they make "I, Robot" and Disney's "Hunchback of Notre Dame" look faithful to the source material. Holmes really wasn't a character invented with big Hollywood blockbusters in mind.

To be fair, Hollywood has a history of having a hard time with detective story adaptations in general.

I think the main problem with that is actually making him Sherlock and calling her Watson. Its always much better when they are characters based on the basic archetypes of the Duo.

Damn my name suits me so incredibly well.

I've yet to see Game of Shadows but I will say that Guy Ritchie Sherlock 1 was barely a mystery so in that sense yeah it's not very good (still a fun movie though). But RDJ and Jude are a FANTASTIC Holmes and Watson.

Yeah, I'll buy that.

The CBS problem is that they are already doing the Female Watson bit. Likely they want to have something to replace their current runner of that due this being its final season.

Because Sherlock Holmes has been interpreted a million times, so another version won't hurt.

I'm just gonna state it flat out.

If you ever liked any shaky cam movie then you are a cancer and a pox, you are the death of good horror movies incarnate, especially if said shaky movie contained CGI.
