BOB showed us what was different between us and them. We (the Band o Brothers) practiced everything for a year before we shipped out to the war. We were ready for the various situations that an invading army needs to do.Yeah, I watched the entire Band Of Brothers series and it was good. The battle of the bulge was pretty amazing. Speaking of amazing it just makes me wonder how the hell we won the war with Germany, they have stronger tanks. I guess we just out numbered them.
Sunshine 8.5/10 (Although I'd like to give it a 10/10 subjectively)
It concerns a crew of astronauts whose mission is to reignite the sun which has started dimming and dooming the earth to eventually freeze 50 years into the future.
The music and cinematography are outstanding.
The tone of the movie changes 2/3 of the way in and there is seemingly a huge flaw concerning the ship and mission.
However, good sci-fi in which the adversary isn't aliens but an environmental factor that must be overcome is rare. And I like the first parts of the movie and the ending so much that the flaws and inconsistencies are forgivable for me.
A solid :thumbsup: from me for this one.
I watched this movie now just because you guys mentioned it.Yeah first 2/3 = fantastic, 10/10.
Then last 1/3 = wtf, poop.
i too enjoyed here comes the boom. was just a fun enjoyable movie. definitely not realistic or anything, but just a fun ride.LOL. For some reason I like this movie. I guess I've always liked the unbelievable underdog movies. I also get the backstory that set it in motion.
the devil's rejects is an awesome movie. i actually have the bluray on the way as i ordered it from gohastings last week when they had a sale on used movies. picked it up on bluray for like $4.Lords of Salem - 4.5/10
If you're into watching wrinkled old ladies scream while naked, then this might be your favorite movie ever. For the rest of us, it was pretty forgettable. The acting was weak enough to be a distraction and the story & pacing were all over the place.
The Devil's Rejects may end up being the only Rob Zombie movie that I ever like.
Mama (2013)I just watched this last night. I really enjoyed it and would give a solid 9/10 as far as horror movies go. It had a decent plot, great acting (even the kids), and some very creepy moments.
Watched it with you and I'd give it 8.5/10. It really is a whole lot better than most movies I've watched.Driving Miss Daisy 7/10
Not quite what I was expecting from a "Best Picture," but worth finally watching, none the less. I always thought it was just about Morgan Freeman's character winning over a mean old lady instead of a a "growing older together as the world changes" movie. It's like Forrest Gump except the people are already old at the start and, thus, it's much harder to relate to. It has a lot less of the cheap sentimentality that Gump has but, in a way, it suffers for it.
FWIW, I watched my LaserDisc copy over S-Video with Dolby Surround over SPDIF. I can't imagine it looked worse on VHS! At least in was wide screen, though not anamorphic. I assume my Panasonic player has a good comb filter for S-Video because it's got the same styling as my "Commercial Use Only" VHS player and Desktop Editor and has nifty functions like dual lasers (avoids flipping the disc). It sounded fine, though it was all out of the center channel (PLII decoder). Hmm... am I doing this right?
I liked it. It gave me insight into the life of a fascinating woman.One recent movie was The Iron Lady.
It was artistically done and the script had some interesting ideas, but it was basically picking on an old woman for having dementia. Horrendously terrible.
