I saw The Conjuring a week or two ago. It's pretty good.

I thought I had watched another movie since then, but I can't think of what it was.

I subjected myself to some of Titanic since it's now on streaming.  I can't believe this movie was such a huge hit.  It's LOTR length for no good reason.  And there wasn't any other shit for his ass to float on?  He just *had* to stay in the water and freeze?  There were so many things wrong.  Don't worry, I washed it out with some DS9.

Sounds like 1/3 of the Hobbit.

I'm halfway through A Tale of Two Sisters. It's been fairly creepy so far. That is a good sign.

Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters. Not nearly as bad as I'd heard, but not a shining example of high cinema. But it wins the award for worst use of Famke Janssen who acted under heavy makeup for the majority of her screen time.

 "I Declare War" and "Justice League Flashpoint Paradox" The best two movies I've seen this summer. Hollywood really let me down this summer. I still have hope for Elysium though.

I wouldn't put too much hope in that flick...but even if it is good that movie has flop smell all over it.

Great Korean psychological horror thriller.

Oh, OH, are we taking bets?  I think it'll just about break even.  Not enough to be a hit, but enough to merit a shitty sequel without Damon in it.   Or if he dies, the sequel will be certain to have Damon in it.


And I saw Wreck-It Ralph last night.  I liked it.  Cute.  It had a good pace to it.  Unfortunately, it's not a stand-out film by any means.  But something I'd sit down and watch again if it happens to be on TV or streaming.  Kinda wary of the talk about a sequel for this one though.

Hmmmm 115 Million budget...I might have to rethink my bet. I assumed this was a 200 mill plus movie. I could see it breaking about even with that budget unless it pulls down a R.I.P.D type opening weekend. I mean if this thing only pulls in 10 mill over the weekend then it's fucked.

Well 11 mill on Friday...so that's like a 33-35 mill weekend. If it doesn't drop off too much in the 2nd week it might make the break even and even point. Maybe even a little bit of profit. Really thought Planes would put up more of a fight.

Oh and I saw G.I. Joe: Retaliation and I have to say it wasn't half bad. Wasn't expecting much after Rise of Cobra was such a cluster fuck, but this one wasn't nearly as bad. Think it might have suffered because of it was a sequel to a shit movie.

I saw retaliation recently also.  Can they please make a Joe movie that doesn't consist of the entire joe team getting wiped out leaving only a few to fight against seemingly insurmountable odds?

I want a full ensemble cast of all the joes vs all of cobra.  Huge battles, insane vehicles, etc. Just like the fucking cartoon.

So, Elysium was pretty good. There won't be a sequel but Blokamps next movie is about a robot cop similar to the ones in Elysium.

I thought Planes would have better too but it's a non Pixar movie based on a Pixar movie. So, that probably killed it. It's been a real bad summer for animated movies not named Despicable Me 2.

I saw 'Ik ben Joep Meloen' a classic Dutch comedy from the early eighties.
Hadn't seen that movie since I was 5 or so. It held up suprisingly well

Yeah, plus from a story stand point it is impossible to do an engaging story with such a large cast. Even the Joe toon and comic only focused on a handful of Joes at a time despite the large cast. The great thing with the toon and comic is that you can just focus on someone new next time, which is a luxury a movie doesn't have. Although I wouldn't be opposed to like a huge cameo battle at the end of the movie not unlike the opening of the 87 Sunbow Movie.

What would have been cool would have been to have GI Joe 1 be about Hawk, Duke, Ripcord, Scarlett, and Snake Eyes whooping up on Destro and Baroness and 2 be about Roadblock, Flint, Lady Jaye, Jinx and John McClane beating Zartan, Firefly, and Storm Shadow, and then have them all join up for the conclusion of a trilogy to kick Cobra Commander's ass. But they didn't plan anything ahead with this, and we're left with an incredibly bad piece of celluloid crap and one somewhat north of marginal movie.

Anyone seen the Guardians of the Galaxy comic con trailer? I still don't understand what this is suppose to be. Are they super heroes, space pirates or some kind of Firefly ripoff?

It's in their name. They guard the galaxy. They are defending against cosmic threats. They are a ragtag group of miscreants, though.

That would've been boss.  Kinda surprising they didn't do that since the industry is soooo in love with damn trilogies.

Miyazaki stuff if very same-face.  I can't unsee the previous characters of the earlier works from the later films.

I thought the same thing! When I was first saw Jiro I was thinking "thats so lame he looks like Mei's dad in Totoro" but then I looked at a pic of the real Jiro and holy shit thats exactly how he looks like


edit: I dont remember if it was Ghibli or Miyazaki, but ""that"" look is trademarked by them thats why all the characters look similar

Watching a Miyazaki movie is like watching a live action Asian movie.  All the actors look the same and you can't tell them apart because they have Asian names.
