anyone excited for Fury, Inherent Vice, Exodus: Gods and Kings, and the third Hobbit?
User avatar #25284 to #25249 - ljxjlos ONLINE (10/13/2014) [-]
Pretty exited for the third Hobbit. I mean, they´re far from being as good as the Lord of the Rings movies and I had to watch it again with the mindset of it not having a thing to do with the books, but damn, they´re entertaining as hell.

I'm excited for Fury, I love tanks and I like the take hey are doing on World War 2
User avatar #25275 to #25249 - thedudeistheman (10/13/2014) [-]
Also, Birdman.

Fury looks pretty great. Inherent Vice looks awesome, PT Anderson is an excellent filmmaker. I want Exodus: Gods and Kings to be good. Looked a little Gladiator-esque, which I'd say is a good sign. Also excited for the third Hobbit film.

Fury, sort of, but I've never been a big war fan. I prefer swords to guns for entertainment.

Never heard of Inherent Vice.

Exodus: Gods and Kings, hell yes! Looks amazing. Even being an atheist, I can enjoy it as long as it's good fiction. But I fear that it will be another 'Noah'. 'Noah' had an excellent trailer after all, but the movie was utter shite, at least in my opinion.

The Hobbit, of course. Loved the other Hobbits. I'll mostly be sad that this will likely be the last time we see Middle Earth though, at least through Jacksons eyes..

I prefer swords as well, I loved The Last Samurai for example. I actually haven't watched many gun war movies

Just came back from seeing Annabelle
Honestly not as good as The Conjuring
Where The Conjuring showed us a lot of subtle scares with a great score to go a long with that; Annabelle has went the route of:
*everything's quiet* ... *DUN* spoopy thing jumps out of nowhere from where we didn't see it. There are a couple exceptions (like when you see the cultist and you see him just standing there as the main character backs up - that's scary shit)
But there were just a lot of suspenseful scenes that they decided to put a jump scare cut in rather than an effort into making it scary, not jumpy (the scene where the demon is on the stairs and it's sitting and watching her for about 10 seconds and it jumps to a close up of it screaming; it would've been so much better if they'd shown it slowly going towards her)

It definitely had it's good moments though; I liked the characters and acting, the cinematography, there are a lot of great creepy shots of Annabelle - but the shots lead up to very little; she is literally just there to be creepy, nothing else. Also there was one shot where we see the doll on the edge of frame with the room in the background, but it all just goes out of focus, including the doll; I have a hard time believing that the director and editor would actually approve it. I hope it was just something wrong with the film projector because there was seriously something stupid going on if it wasn't.
I also liked the general theme of sacrifice and family beyond the horror itself.

All in all, I'd say if you're a horror snob or something, don't waste your money on it - but like I said, it wasn't all bad and I liked a great deal of it - it just had some major failings like Annabelle not doing anything, or seeing too much of the demon - and for a woman who cares so much for her baby, the main character sure does leave the baby alone a lot. You don't leave a baby alone like that. Get your shit together, woman.

For those who have seen Salo:

Is it actually good, or is it just famous for being gross (a la A Serbian Film or The Human Centipede)? I doubt I'll be watching it anytime soon, I'm just curious.
User avatar #25251 to #25243 - eight (10/12/2014) [-]
It's sick and twisted in many ways. From the use of young-looking actors/actresses for implied under-age porn/torture porn/rape to the many gross and obscenities littered throughout like hidden razor blades in food and shit eating . And of course, you probably know how it ends. It's infamous after all.

Honestly, you could skip it. There's nothing new with Salo that you haven't seen individually elsewhere to a lesser degree. Everything wrong about the world is thrown into this one movie, given the name.

That said, it's interesting if you can stomach it, at least as a character study of psychopaths. How they interact with one another, how they view society, their political ideologies and their life stories. The kids are literally all plot-devices, only there to make you squint and turn your head only to be served up like sheep to a slaughter.
User avatar #25252 to #25251 - thedudeistheman (10/12/2014) [-]
I'll probably pass on it then. It's not often that violence turns me off in a film, but I can't usually stomach gross things, and I knew that once I heard about the shit eating I'd probably pass. I asked because if I heard it was really worth watching (because it's an excellent film, a landmark of cinema, etc.) I'd at least give it a shot.
User avatar #25253 to #25252 - eight (10/12/2014) [-]
Yeah, I wouldn't call it that by a mile. Though some would, probably.
User avatar #25258 to #25253 - thedudeistheman (10/12/2014) [-]
I've seen it listed as part of the Criterion Collection, and I figured those films usually have some cinematic significance. I'm sure Salo does in some way, but I'll still pass.

Doesn't seem to be a movie board so I'll ask here.

I watched Shawshank and it was awesome. I watched Fight Club and it was awesome.

Give me another obvious classic guaranteed to be excellent, please. Don't tell me anything about it, though. Just titles.

If you like shawshank, you'll like the green mile. Maybe a bit less, though. Anyway, same director.

Farscape was sorely underrated.

Watched the first episode of Fargo. I'm not sure I 'get' this show. It seems to try and be a mix between comedy and drama (or is the comedy unintentional?). It takes itself too seriously. And almost all the characters seem to have an IQ of less than 80 which really makes it annoying.
User avatar #25226 - feelythefeel (10/11/2014) [-]
Oh look at that.

Korra losing her way arc #9001.

At least it makes sense. PTSD and shit.
#25221 - chaoticlaw (10/10/2014) [-]
I can't be the only one that thought this shit was cute as fuck. Pearl was straight up willing to leave all the crap on earth behind for a chance at bringing Steven with her to the homeworld. She was so irresponsibly emotional, it was so fucking adorable. I mean shit, she was gonna fucking kidnap him for 50 fucking years.

Goddamn, that's cute. In a weird way.
User avatar #25245 to #25221 - tvfreakuk (10/11/2014) [-]
I liked this episode.
It did really show how desperate, and I mean, really fucking desperate to get off planet for Steven, and a little for herself.
The fact she was even willing to put Steven's safety at risk for just that small chance of getting to space showed how much it meant for her seeing as she is always the most cautious and worried for Steven's safety on missions
User avatar #25246 to #25245 - chaoticlaw (10/12/2014) [-]
What really got me was how she completely disregarded how the other gems might have felt. Like I seriously fucking doubt Garnet would have gone with that shit. Pearl went straight crazy at the chance to show Steven the cosmos, and almost got both of them killed. Crazy shit man.
User avatar #25247 to #25246 - tvfreakuk (10/12/2014) [-]
Yeah, Garnet and Amethyst are hardly in this episode at all tbh
And when Steven asked "Can we fix them?" and she just bluntly says "No." I felt like it wasn't as much "We can't." as in "We shouldn't/won't."
User avatar #25248 to #25247 - chaoticlaw (10/12/2014) [-]
Me too. Felt a lot darker than what was said. Honestly if this show keeps going the way it's going, it'll get super fucking popular in no time.

That'll do, Fincher, that'll do.

i like what south park is doing this season every episode has something related to the last its getting dope
also the ending of key and peele was so funny i got a laughter headache
User avatar #25227 to #25216 - feelythefeel (10/11/2014) [-]
This season of South Park tries to have you laughing at jokes multiple episodes old.

And it somehow works.
User avatar #25220 to #25216 - themanwithnoplan (10/10/2014) [-]
The first episode of Key and Peele had me worried but this one reassured me.

I can't wait for the 3rd East vs West bowl though.
User avatar #25218 to #25216 - maddboiy (10/10/2014) [-]
It seems like South Park is sort of doing what Archer Vice did, having longer stories throughout the season rather than just episodes as individual stories
#25210 - anonymous (10/10/2014) [-]
The Flash was ok.
Arrow was better.
User avatar #25224 to #25210 - ScottP (10/11/2014) [-]
I actually liked the first episode of Flash over S3E1 of Arrow, but that's probably because I'm a bigger Flash fan. That Arrow twist though! That's...seriously I'm excited to see what happens next in the season.
#25230 to #25224 - anonymous (10/11/2014) [-]
Gonna be hard to top deathstroke. Wonder if they are going to bring in another Spartacus star for a new villain or just focus on Merlin.
User avatar #25232 to #25230 - ScottP (10/11/2014) [-]
Seems like the League of Assassins is the main overall antagonist for this season
#25233 to #25232 - anonymous (10/11/2014) [-]
Still unconfirmed if it was them. All we know is that she was shot by arrows. That and Barrowman is on the roster. They really could bring in anyone at this point.
User avatar #25234 to #25233 - ScottP (10/11/2014) [-]
Well I mean they've shown that Ra's Al-Ghul is gunning for Oliver so...
#25240 to #25234 - anonymous (10/11/2014) [-]
They had ample time to kill Black Canary though , she worked for them for what one can assume is at least a few months after the deathstroke incident. And as far as we knew Oliver made peace with the daughter which would carry over to ra's .

Not sayin it's impossible that they are against the league, but they are gonna have to bring in someone else to be against the league directly. I think merlin had some bad blood with them, so that might make sense. Unless Black Canary fucked up in some way. Either way we get flashbacks of Black Canary which will be great.

And if 3 seasons later she comes back and says the arrows were laced with poison that slowed her heartrate to mimic death I'm gonna fucking riot. I'd rather have the lazarus pit copout than that.

(is) the shows are still coming unless you are talking about individual first episode

I've watched some pretty great stuff (and some good stuff) recently.

Let the Right One In was pretty good.

Detention was good.

Gone Girl was awesome.

Detachment was good.
User avatar #25212 to #25209 - herecomesjohnny (10/10/2014) [-]
i'm hyped for gone girl, i really dig david fincher
User avatar #25211 to #25209 - eight (10/10/2014) [-]
Loved Let The Right One In. Haven't seen other 3 though.

Considering you liked LTROI, I would suggest Byzantium. It's a gem among vampire films and widely unknown. It takes more of an artful approach though, very character driven alot like LTROI.

So, Disney apparently has an Obi-Wan standalone trilogy in the works. It will occur in between Episode 3 and 4, during that 20 year gap. And it's going to bring back Qui-Gon Jinn (as force ghost). One of the films will take place entirely on Tatooine and the other two films will venture to new planets.

Hoping they choose to cast Ewan McGregor again, he was a great Obi-Wan and would be the right age for the role. And if they bring back Ewan, they'll have to bring back Liam Neeson.
User avatar #25217 to #25208 - princessren (10/10/2014) [-]
I feel like Disney is getting way too ambitious
like...they have another trilogy in the works
a whole trilogy about obi wan
I heard they were doing something with bobba fett
it just seems like a bit much to me

I agree in a way. However, I don't think there's any place safer for the Star Wars universe to be handled. Maybe Marvel, but they stick with superheroes anyway.

I mean, yes they are flooding the universe suddenly, but it's by one of the largest companies in the field with fingers in pockets just about everywhere. I think it's pretty much safe. Whatever they produce will probably be enjoyed by most old fans and new fans, And surely they wouldn't mess with canon if they have any intelligence.

The only thing I'm concerned with is the longevity of the series. If they flood our media with all these stories now, the less they'll have to produce without cliche upon cliche later on in the future. I'm sure eventually they'll reach back to the old republic, but once a trilogy or saga is done there, I think the universe will be spent. But I'm not complaining, that will be an epic universe to have.

Didn't care for American Horror Story season 4 premier. But, considering many of the major characters haven't even been introduced yet, I probably shouldn't judge it too quickly. So far, it just doesn't seem to have improved since the dreadful last season.

So, I finally got to watch Thor: The Dark World in good quality after it kinda slipped by me for month.

The end completely made me forgot everything else about the movie - Seriously. WHAT. THE. FUCK?
Real Spoilers for those who didn´t watch the movie yet, like me from 2 hours ago: They killed Odin. Off screen? Seri-fucking-ously? The strongest being that has been seen in the cinematic Universe, second only to Thanos himself (and the dead Celestial in GotG, but that doesn´t really amount to much) - and they fucking killed him off-screen? I´m fucking furious right now. I really, really hope they´ll have an incredibly good explanation for this in Thor 3 or this might easily the first thing in the MCU that I actually dislike (yes, I even did like the whole "Mandarin"-Twist)...Not to mention that I did love Anthony Hopkins as Odin, it´s a waste to let such an amazing Actor and Character go that early during Marvels Plans in the Cinematic Universe.
User avatar #25225 to #25200 - ScottP (10/11/2014) [-]
We don't know if Odin is really dead. He could be in extended sleep. After all, Loki has shown to be somewhat affectionate towards his parents regardless of how angry he may get towards them. I liked it a lot more than Thor 1, but the villain was a pansy. So far, both Thor villains (the Destroyer and Malekith) have been pretty underwhelming
User avatar #25238 to #25225 - ljxjlos ONLINE (10/11/2014) [-]
Yeah, I wish they´d do a Godslayer-arc-movie for example. Or something more celestial. They could at the very least have made someone wear the Destroyer as an armour, it felt like e weak-ass Iron Man-Armor in Thor 1.

I wish - but Anthony Hopkins said that his character is done - sadly. I´m still hoping for him to take that back but it seems like that´s how it is.
User avatar #25201 to #25200 - newvein (09/30/2014) [-]
Had high hopes for this movie.
Such disappoint.
User avatar #25204 to #25201 - ljxjlos ONLINE (09/30/2014) [-]
Yeah - I mean, it wasn´t bad or anything, but it just wasn´t as good as the rest of the MCU to this point.
