I watched 'The Terminal' last night.  I've been wanting to see this for quite some time and I like pretty much anything with Tom Hanks in it.  That being said, I loved the movie.

Been watching old Bond movies and such nowadays.

Recently saw "The Living Daylights" and "Thunderball." The former was kind of...I dunno, weird. Not very Bond-ish, I think he got too close to the girl. I liked Thunderball much more-- Sean Connery made and excellent James Bond. =D

Saw S.W.A.T. for the third time. I really like this film.

Easily the best Bond in my opinion. Goldfinger is the friggin' greatest.

I watched Reservoir Dogs tonight and I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next in this film.

I've never seen Goldfinger, although I did manage to catch "The Spy Who Loves Me" with Roger Moore as Bond. StarMovies has been playing 007 films every weekend for the whole month.

Makes me wonder how Daniel Craig will do in Casino Royale.

I think he'll be good. Whatever happens, he can't be worse than George Lazenby :P

I watched The Terminator, because it's a friggin' classic.

Watched War of the Worlds last night. I actually really enjoyed the first half or so. Then came Tim Robbins to ruin everything. Then came the sucky ending.
Code:
So feeding off of humans somehow killed the machines? Right? Hence Morgans Parasite references? Whatever.
Why did the kid(Rob) have to be alive? It's not like the ending suddenly becomes a happy happy joy joy fest just because he somehow survived. You still have the destruction of the whole fuckin world to tend to. Seemed like a desperate stretch for some kind of happy ending. Sorry Spielberg, but it was weak.

I saw Hostel last night and it wasn't as bloody as I thought it would be.  My dreams last night were way worse.

Precisely. Spielberg really bollocked up the second half. It's a shame, had the entire thing been like the first hour it would have been my favourite film of last year.

I've watched:

- Blazing Saddles - Not as funny as I hoped, a lot of people say it's the funniest movie ever made. It had some laughs, but overall I thought it was just average.

- The Machinist - Jesus, I have no fucking idea what the Hell this one was all about. I enjoyed it, but man, confusing!

Wasn't it water that killed the aliens finally?

Also, what was wrong with Tim Robbins? That was a great performance.

He was a completely unnecessary character. That whole bit in the house was just ridiculously tacked on to try and add some tension to the film.
Code:
I highly doubt the aliens would bother sending a probe down into a house just in case there was a survivor or two, they'd just blow the shit out of the house. Plus the fact that Tim Robbins is about a foot taller than Cruise and would blatantly kick his arse.


EDIT: Oh yeah, I think it was just germs in general that killed the aliens.

In history class today we watched High Noon, as we're currently studying the myth of the Wild West. It was decent enough, but my enjoyment was hindered by the massive arse pains I was suffering due to sitting on those uncomfortable plastic chairs for so long. Also, the whole film is spent leading up to the arrival of the villain. When he arrives there's no characterisation, he has one line, and he's dead within five minutes.

In the book it was the common cold you losers. The movie never says really, but yea.

I bought and watched Advent Children on my sister's bigscreen today. I was actually quite pleased with the English dub. There were a few scenes where the mouth movement onscreen wasn't matching what was being said, but on the whole it was decent.

I went so see Silent Hill.

I thought it was alright. The set design, and most of the character/monster design was superb, although the CG was a little dodgy at times. I haven't played the game, but the plot was decent enough, certainly more ambitious than the other horror films coming out these days. It didn't really seem like it was trying to be scary, more like it was aiming for weird, freaky imagery, which it succeeded at. It could have had more atmosphere. If Sean Bean's part was eliminated (he was entirely pointless) then I think it would have benefitted the film.

This weekend it was...

"A New World"
It felt really, really long because the director kept going through all these scenic views, trying to capture the beauty of the new world or the emotion in wordless scenes. I thought it was okay at the begining but I'm really, really sick of Collin Farrel right now. His character was so tentatively mixed up and all his scenes were so silent that I think the kids in his village had more words in their script. Christian Bale was excellent. Yayz.

Two Bond films. "Never say never again" and "Diamonds are forever." I liked them both although the former just didn't feel like a bond film.

I agree with you about Never Say Never Again. It's a good film, but not particularly a good Bond film. Diamonds Are Forever is great though.

I've watched a lot of movies, let's see if I can remember them:

Requiem for a Dream - It was good, but as is said in the thread for The Fountain, the director just takes it too damn far toward the end, and makes some poor decisions.

Labyrinth - Hadn't watched this since I was a kid. Fantastic film, really, really great. I was scared the puppetry etc wouldn't hold up today, but it totally does.

Layer Cake - This was pretty bad. It seemed like it was trying to mix the boyishness of Snatch with the maturity of Goodfellas, and it just did not work. Plus everything was so damn gloomy, and the characters so one-dimensional and unlikeable that it was just horrid to watch.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame (the Disney one) - Not Disney's best, but still pretty good. The climax is very good in my opinion, looks great and is very dramatic.

The Last of the Mohicans - Wasn't paying full attention while watching this. When I was it seemed pretty good. Scalpings for the win.

Airplane! - Comedy classic, nuff said.

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children - I didn't like it. Not having played hardly any of FFVII meant I didn't care about any of the characters, the story sucked, most of the dialogue sucked, and the action was just way too 'flippy flippy yay whoah woo!' all over the place for my liking.

I'm sure there's more, but I'm lazy and can't remember. Yes, I've been very bored.
