Well I should be ok until Blu-rays are obsolete and everything goes streaming.
Thank for the offer! But I'm fine for now It looked like this:Did it look like this? http://www.icollectmedia.com/details/movie/Oldboy/8809032222594/
I have that copy on DVD; you can have it if you want as I now have the full trilogy on Blu.
I've pondered this myself, I wondered if KT has a room full of media discsHow large is your collection? Not that it matters, let the haters hate.
:biggrin::awe::'(:biggrin:12 Angry Men - 9.5/10
Watched this classic recently for the first time. Not much to say about this.. as most of you have already watched this many times. Overall, I am pretty impressed with this movie.. script and acting feel extremely natural.
Also, please don't ever try to remake this move.
Pretty much this, right down to the last sentence.Repulsion - 9.5/10: Polanski's 1965 thriller, actually very close to being a horror film, about a woman who goes crazy (not much of a summary, but that's the gist of it) played by a freaking gorgeous Catherine Deneuve. There is such an awesome, slow build to this film as you see the disconnected Carole (Deneuve) dealing with daily life, then how things slowly crumble as she becomes more detached form the world and is left to her own devices. You really go on a ride a of psychosis with her and being in that apartment, you begin to feel claustrophobic yourself as the world collapses in on you. It is truly amazing film filled with tension and horror and I can't believe I had not seen it before now. Polanski's a sick bastard who should be in jail, but motherfucker can the direct the shit out of a movie.
She is indeed super hot, love her! Did you watch this on Blu? I bought it, but have not had a chance to re-watch it yet. Interested to know what the transfer is like.Gremlins - 8.5/10
It seems the corniness of this movie becomes more and more apparent every time I see it, but it's still fun to watch, every single time. Gizmo in the toy car never gets old. And you know, Phoebe Cates was hot. *rummages around interwebs* She must be living right, too, because she is still hot.
I have not seen Day in many, many years. I too always proclaim Dawn as my favourite, so I'll need to re-watch this one to compare.Day of the Dead - 9/10
I used to like Dawn the best, but Day keeps growing on me. It just seems like everything in this film was gotten just right. Except for greasy-haired Mr. Drama, every character, right down to the zombies, has something endearing about them, and the ones who are being bastards get theirs.
No, Betamax*.She is indeed super hot, love her! Did you watch this on Blu? I bought it, but have not had a chance to re-watch it yet. Interested to know what the transfer is like.
The above is how Michael Bay actually makes his films. Only difference is he DOES remember to change the titleCatching up on my bad Michael Bay popcorn movies . . . .
Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen: 6.25 / 10 - a few nice scenes and some watchable drama here and there.
Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen: 5.75 / 10 - a few nice scenes but the drama was even more stupid than in the second one.
They did make me think better of Pearl Harbor, it's almost a good movie by comparison.
I'd probably enjoy them more if was 10 years old, but I thought the effects in Battle Los Angeles were more imaginative and the military theme was done much better there.

I liked it enough:any Aki Kaurismäki fans? I've never seen any of his films but his new one Le Havre looks very interesting and the reviews have been great. Limited release for a few weeks now. I'm going to be in NYC for thanksgiving and was thinking of sneaking off and catching a movie :sneaky:
I do want to see some more of his stuff now.Le Havre - 7/10: this is the first Aki Kaurismäki film I have seen (man Without a Past has been on my ZipList for quite a while) and to be honest I found it a tad befuddling. I loved the main character and found him very amusing, but the overall feel of the film left me bit bewildered as I was not sure whether some of the things (like the poor acting with clunky dialogue in a few spots) were intentional. This was another film that felt like it was from 30 or 40 years ago, which I suppose is to give you a sense of arrested development in this town, but just left me confused. I sound overly critical, but I actually did like this quite a bit, I think I'm just not entirely sure what to make of it. I'm probably over thinking it and should just enjoy it for the nice tale that it is. My favourite parts were, by far, anything with the main guy and the inspector; both of those characters were awesome. I'm quite interested to see some of Aki Kaurismäki's other work now.
Haven't seen any of his films yet but he certainly does have a following among film buffs. Which doesn't always mean much.It's Pedro Almodovar. I've seen two of his films one awful (All About my Mother) and one very good (Talk to Her). This one has an interesting premise so I am looking forward to it, which means I will probably be disappointed.
