My opinion: "Black Hawk Down" is one of the best war movies ever, yes license was taken, The Somalis
where portrayed as one dimensional bad guys, but most of what happens in the movie actually happened.
Something rare in movies today & it really gives an everyday person a feel for actual warfare.

Movies like Hidalgo, Ironclad, Enemy at the Gates etc. ether did not happen at all or was drastically changed
for pure entertainment reasons.

Speaking of disappointing war movies, they filmed parts of "Jarhead" in our local desert so I went out and played an extra for a few days. I do a bit of amateur film making (not that kind! ) and I really learned a lot by watching the pros. But I thought the movie sucked and I didn't even make it into any of the scenes

Yeah Jarhead too - I saw that one and thought "was that it?" I hear you too about "Enemy At the Gates" - good script, but there was too much CGI, and too many foreigners pretending to be Germans and Russians. The German film "Downfall" (Der Untergang) was a far better portrayal of that period.

Also while I am at it, the original of "The Thin Red Line" (1964) starring Keir Dullea (who later starred in "2001: A Space Odyssey") was incredibly disappointing for its totally conventional, unimaginative treatment of an absolutely incredible novel about Guadalcanal. It took Terence Malick to finally nail it in 1998. I would love to see his director's cut, given that he left all the footage that included Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Sheen, Gary Oldman, Bill Pullman, Lukas Haas, Jason Patric, Viggo Mortensen and Mickey Rourke on the cutting room floor.

Hostel part 2. Didn't care much for the film, but during the "Lady Bathory" scene, a woman snuck in with her two young children. Her little girl saw this horrifying scene involving a bathtub and a scythe and broke out crying.Her mom made them stay for another ten minutes then left.

I went to a Matinée of "Star Trek Nemesis" when it came out some years ago
besides me, a Father & his two kids were the only people in the theater

I knew he was a Doctor because his cell phone went off every few minutes at which point
he would discuss medical treatments, speaking very loudly because the movie was playing

I have a three strike rule when it comes to rude people, so after the third call I got up
and said to the A-Hole to please put his phone away and went back to my seat.

He continued to take phone calls for the next half hour which I gave him a dirty look each time
but he just ignored me, so I went to the manager (a very young kid) and complained about this rude idiot
he came back into the theater with me and asked "Doctor A-Hole" to turn his phone off, The doctor's kids
looked very embarrassed, but the guy just ignored the manager and continued to talk on his cell phone

The Manager told me he would call the police at this point because there was no security at the theater to kick the "Doctor" out.

So this went on for about 45 minutes into the movie before the police came to escort the pinhead out who just walked out with out saying a word to the police

not only did I meet the rudest person ever, but had to watch the movie that killed the Star Trek
franchise for many years to come, I did get 10 free movie passes though.

After sitting through that film, I'd rather listen to the doctor.

All the "Harry Potter" movies suck. Well I assume they do. I walked out of the first one within the first 30 minutes and haven't looked back. The whole premise seemed so far-fetched and unbelievable.



Really? It's a movie about a boy who's a wizard who was almost killed by an evil sorcerer and who attends a school of magic and it took you 30 minutes of watching it to realize that it was far-fetched and unbelievable?

That's what my dad said after I took him to see J.J. Abrams' 'Star Trek'.

Worst movie I've seen lately was 'Wargames: The Dead Code'. I swear, if I see ONE more movie where they "can't" unplug the computer, or they unplug the computer and it keeps going...

Going through a stack of vhs tapes at a cult movie con last weekend and came across this:



I saw this the one weekend it played in theaters. I thought it was crap then, and after seeing the box in a $1 bin, I remembered exactly how lousy it really is. John Shaft was never cool again after this.

I was working at a friend's house last night and she had one of the Twilight movies on. I hadn't realized werewolves in their human form were all moody, buff, and hairless.

The Green Hornet was really really awful. (Well, as I stopped watching half way through maybe I can only rightfully say it was really awful.)

The Green Hornet feels like it probably was half assed to begin with and the producers figured if they had Seth Rogen (or some similar actor) it'd give the film an angle that might appeal to people who, upon hearing the title of the film, would say "The Green what?".

Apparently the producers also thought Rogen's presence would mean they wouldn't need a script. ("It'll practically write itself!")

So far "The Green Hornet" still has my vote for worst movie of the year.

Once in a while a friend and I do a "Film Festival" where we pay one price and hop from one theater to another checking out like half an hour of everything. So I really don't know if this counts, sorry.

One time we did the Film Festival I watched the George Clooney/Mitchell Pfeiffner (is that how you spell her f'n name?!) movie called "One FIne Day."
So help me, here it is:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117247/

And we could only watch it for about 3 minutes before I said in my best bar voice "This movie is a stinking turd." My friend watched it for another minute and said "This turd has PEANUTS in it." Then we walked out. The next theater was playing an even worse movie, the next theater was badder still...

Another time I did this I watched about 15 minutes of the Hannah Montana movie. It was interesting, but WAY worse than anything you can imagine. Badly acted, dicey plotting, the lighting was an afterthought, even the sound was OFF for some sections. (How does that happen nowadays?) And I felt really ill watching Hannah try to put herself over as a sort of sex symbol. That's what she's supposed to be, right?

Cripes, Green Hornet is well intentioned, brilliantly directed fine freaking art compared to Hannah Montana.
