Movie thread Part IV

I just watched 崖の上のポニョ (Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea). It’s Hayao Miyazaki’s newest film, and as always, that man is amazing. Whenever he writes, directs, and animates a film he creates a new classic for the ages. I was worried when I saw the trailer, as it looked like the movie was designed to be a little too family-friendly. I was wrong. The story was amazing, and I can’t wait for it to come out in the USA.

Just a warning though. It’s a depature from his recent movies, and has a gentler, less violent story akin to My Neighbor Totoro or Kiki’s Delivery Service. So, if you’re into the more actiony stuff, you might find it a little boring.

Here’s a trailer for it, with English translations in the description:

Drillbit Taylor
Superhero Movie

I liked Drillbit Taylor better
Superhero Movie was stupid/funny just like Epic Movie, Date Move, Scary Movie 1-4
Nothing special


Has anybody heard about the new STAR WARS Movie ? … IMHO they could have done better …

That movie looks okay
I’ll see it

I’m not really expecting it to be any good :tongue:

Probably the best movie about time travel I’ve ever seen. Highly recommended :clock:

Just saw Yojimbo last night. Such a great movie. It deserves it’s title as a “classic”.

Tommy Boy

“Run Away Jury” is an amazing movie. It’s where this guy sort of tricks his way into a jury where the case is against a fire arm company. The main character is like the best at convincing the rest of the jurors what way to think and so since the case is HUGE he contacts the defence atterny and the prosecutor and tries to get them to pay him a rediculous amount of money to sway the jury their way. I don’t want ot tell you guys the hole movie but I have to say that it is a good watch.

Saw V For Vendetta some time ago.
Truly amazing movie, I strongly recommend it.
It also has the fanciest monologue I’ve ever heard, so of course I had to memorize it :tongue:

Watch these movies…
Zeitgeist Addendum
Esoteric Agenda

Dark Knight was awesome, it was long. Action pack the whole time. Tropic Thunder was really funny and Step Brothers was great. It was a little silly how 40 year old guys were acting childish, but I laughed alot. Burned after reading looked good, I never had a chance to go see it. Been a while since I have been in the movies. I saw some Japaneese cowboy western movie, I thought it was terrible. Still cant beleive I watched the whole thing. Been watching alot of rentals lately, thats about it

I loved Moulin Rougue

After I saw Jumpers I did have a cool MILD, where I did have the same powers of what dream or dreamscape that i wanted to visit. It was really cool and until i started to gain a clear idea of what I had. Then i woke up.

Burn after Reading and The 3rd Mummy are the latest movies, Burn was great its very different from alot of movies but it had me laughing. I like the Cohen brothers they make great movies. The Mummy was a bit boring in the begining then it picked up and it was filled with action. I liked it was good, it seemed a bit quick after the action picked up. Far as the new movies, The Spirit and Ben Buttons havent seen any of them, dont know what to think. Hands are in the air.

The dark night is awsome. Heath ledger really nailed the joker. Infact I think he was what really made the movie. I really loved the theme of the movie… How far good could be pused before coming evil.

There is another “National treassure” Movie coming out called Page 47. I cant wait to see it.

I just saw “Idiocracy” yesterday…The scary part is…what if the future will be like that?
I also saw “Narnia” for the first time yesterday…I’m a big fan of movies…

July 10th 2009 there is a movie coming out called “2012”. I thinks a movie about 2005.

For those of you who haven’t already seen the Curious Case of Benjamen Button, I’d look for that once it comes out on video. Great movie there.
Another one I saw just yesterday was Slumdog Millionaire. It was really good, especially since I wasn’t expecting a whole lot.

I just saw “1408”, and it scared the hell out of me. This was one of my top 5 scary movies. It allso led me to another cool movie called “178” which allso had Samual L Jackson. I was disspointed it wasnt the movie I thought it was, but its still a cool movieI would recomend both of them. Stephen King movies scare the *%$^ out of me. The scarest movie is “Pet Cematary”, but 1408 I would give 1408 a 3 on a scale one to 5.

My top 5 scary movies

1 Pet Cematary
2 Sixth sence
3 1408
4 signs
5 I dont know the name of this one, but its a old black, and white movie.
