Exclamation

But Rambo IV was also better than Rambo III, so let's give it a chance.


Very true!

I just saw Noah. As a big fan of Aronofsky and a sucker for apocalyptic films, I enjoyed it a lot. Although it's the furthest departure from the director's trademark themes and style, it was a beautiful glimpse into the antediluvian world. I enjoyed the tributes to Dor's art which were peppered throughout the movie as well.


Watched it on blu ray last night, agreed with all this, except I don't think it was that much of a departure for him. Fantastic film, definitely will watch it again.

that latest Rambo movie was badass BUT he was an old man just gunning people down, not actually doing a lot of physical action like he used to be able to do

Ehm....yes, probably because he actually IS an old man by now - or what did you seriously expect?

After the almost self-ironic approach and multiple absurd anachronisms of the third installment, the fourth part depicts the brutality and political reality of a modern (civil) war quite accurately, for a hollywood-movie at least.

Apropos: We all agree that Terminator 4 was worse than Terminator 3 (which was also pretty weak), right? Or is there another consensus I am not part of?

Just watched The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Wow, impressive video game, too bad Dr. Manhattan didn't make it til the end. Unfortunately my joystick had some problems and I didn't manage to kill the final Transformer boss :/

Agree with you on Rambo.

I remember not liking Terminator 3. Arnie looked too old. Attractive blonde girls in red leather don't make good bad guys. Rest of the cast were boring.

obviously I didn't expect youthful acrobatics; I simply stated that the new rambo can't be considered of the same ilk as classic 80s action movies
it was visually entertaining, but again due to his age, not at all on par with what made classic action movies good

I'm sure there are others on here that are big fans of the Arnold commentary tracks on his 80's classics? They are all great, but his commentary for Total Recall and Conan The Barbarian are solid gold!

Also worth watching for any fan of 70's and 80's action films is "Milius", about legendary screen writer John Milius. It's on Netflix streaming now and worth a watch! I was always aware of who he was, but didn't realize exactly how much stuff he wrote and what a big impact he had on many of my all time favorite films. He wrote so many immortal classic lines. Here are a few of the movies he wrote:

Dirty Harry (...Do ya' feel lucky?)
Dillinger
Magnum Force
Apocalypse Now (Napalm in the morning....)
Conan the Barbarian (Lamentations of the women..)
Red Dawn
Clear and Present Danger

.... he also wrote Shaw's famous monologue on the boat when they're all drinking in Jaws about the beady little rat eyes of a great white shark. His version was 10 pages long but it was edited down.

My friend showed me the commentary on Conan The Barbarian years ago, and I have to say it is fucking hilarious. I love how pervy he is!

Oh yeah, she was a Valkyrie..hmm...yeah a Valkyrie!

I didn't know he did all those..respect! I'll have to watch the commentary on Total Recall!

Guardians of the Galaxy in the theater with my son. Quite possibly the best comic to movie adaption yet. The movie was solid and I enjoyed it... some of the off hand jokes a few characters dropped were definitely for adults, and they made me laugh... should make any red blooded whoring male chuckle some actually.

Visually wicked, decent enough story, great action, the characters are more or less wicked... totally worth the ticket price.

Agreed. Michael rooker's character was hillarious.

Today: Gettysburg (1993)

Have seen it before but I was reminded how Richard Jordan stole the show with his performance as Lew Armistead. He died of a brain tumor shortly after this movie was released. RIP

That was a cool film. The sequel of sorts, "Gods & generals" was pretty good too.

I realized I haven't really checked any new horror films in past 3-4 years so I decided to start correcting this gap. Watched:

The Conjuring
Insidious
Insidious 2
Oculus
Mama
V/H/S 2
[Rec] 1,2,3
The Woman in Black
Cabin in the Woods
Mother's Day
Stoker
Sinister

If you have any horror recommendations from 2010's please share. With newer horror movies I strongly prefer supernatural/ghost stories to straight forward bodyhorror/torture.

+ went to see Violette. Too long but the french literature reference -porn kept me excited.
