Had some time to kill before my shift yesterday, so I went to see the third Madagascar movie, without seein' the first two.

And it was just the 2D version...

...and to be honest, I kinda want to watch the first two now, and see this one again, but in 3D.

31. Meet the Fockers: B
32. Prometheus: B
33. Chernobyl Dairies: B-
34. Little Fockers: B-
35. Halloween III: Season of the Witch: B+

Way back in the mid 90's I bought this on VHS as part of a Halloween lot from Columbia Home Video. Never watched it though. I wanted Michael Meyers.
Had this movie been called anything else but Halloween III it would probably get more recognition. From what I know they wanted the Halloween saga to be an anthology series and this was the first go at that. Must not have done well cause for pt.4 they returned to Meyer.

As a movie itself and for it's era I found it to be a good scary, suspense flick. It stars the man from John Carpenters Fog and his ex-wife was played by the gal who was Lori Strode's friend in the first film. It's about an Irish Druid Cult trying to harness the power of Samhain. Samhain is the only thematical tie to the other films as Meyers was said to be a follower by Dr.Loomis. A couple other subtle nods to the first film also. The film ends and you really don't know the conclusion. But I did like it and if you're a fan of this era's horror films give it a try.

Re: Movies Seen in 2012


176. Gojira: (✩✩✩✩) - Live TV - Also known as Godzilla. This is the original movie that started it all. It was in black and white and had subtitles. It was also surprisingly good. I expected a dumb cheesy action movie, but this thing actually had a story and a relevant message about the dangers of nuclear technology. I'm glad I finally saw it.

177. Rodan: (✩✩½) - Live TV - Another introductory film for another monster. This time, it's about the "rodan", a flying pterodactyl-like creature that terrorizes the skies, and there are two of them. It's not as substantial as Gojira, but it was good to see.

178. Mothra: (✩✩✩) - Live TV - Yet another introductory film. This time, it centered around Mothra. This movie is more fanciful than the others. It deals with two 12-inch tall women having been captured by an expedition party to an island, with their deity Mothra, a giant moth, having to come to civilization to rescue them. It was pretty weird, but again, I can say that I finally saw it.

If anyone is interested, there's more discussion on these movies in the TCM movie thread, starting here.

Men in Black 3

I really had fun watching this movie. A lot of people are saying how unnecessary this movie was, but it's your typical summer film and a film that I thought had a lot of heart. Brolin did a fantastic job playing young K, and I really liked Emma Thompson as O. Also, the end scenes (probably the last 20 minutes of the movie) were really touching, even if it was a little predictable.

Prometheus

The more I think about this movie the more I didn't like it. Visually, it was a great film, but in terms of character and narrative development, I found this movie to be kind of a mess. These characters did stupid things, some of the actions were not very well explained, and it just was kind of a dull movie. I kept thinking about how great Alien and Aliens were, and that this was a prequel, but it doesn't even compare with those two movies. This was was more on the level of Alien Resurrection, and that was a bit unfortunate.

Got back into Austin tonight, wound up seein' Rock of Ages in an attempt to decompress from the road trip.

What a terrible fuckin' movie that was...and the way they used '80s music should be considered a crime against humanity.

Debatin' on seein' That's My Boy - not a fan of Adam Sandler, but I can see it for free...or maybe MiB3 or Avengers again before work tomorrow.

66. 3 Days of the Condor (B+)

Another of the classic 70s paranoia thrillers. It's less consistently atmospheric than The Conversation, but I'd rate it higher on the strength of the narrative (it's only decent most of the way through, but it has a great ending). From the unexpected detente with Max von Sydow's character to the moody, ambiguous ending, it's superb. The preceding film isn't bad, either, and has a lot of interesting old-fashioned espionage details, but it's not standout.

34. Little Fockers: B-
35. Halloween III: Season of the Witch: B+
36. Winters Bone: B+
37. Battleship: A-
38. Much Ado About Nothing: B+


Winters Bone: It was a good film. I seem to recall lots of hype about it though back upon it's release. Was that cause of expectations on a then relative unknown Jennifer Lawrence or it was Peter Jackson's first big movie post LOTR? Both? I did enjoy it and at times it felt more like a documentary on poor white mountain trash or human interest drama about a down on their luck family.

Battleship: If this movie were called Naval Combat and had no expectations to feeling tied to a Board Game it would have maybe been received better? There is only one 15min sequence in the film that resembles the board game, beyond that it's just an alien invasion film. No glaring plot holes. It's actually an enjoyable summer popcorn action flick.

Much Ado About Nothing: The early 90's Kenneth Brangh adaptaion. A coworker was going to throw it away after not getting anything for it at a second hand retailer so she gave it to me when I mentioned I hadn't seen it. That I could recall. It's decent. It was more fun seeing the introduction of Kate Beckinsale and a post-Batman Michael Keaton than anything.

Aside from special screenings, I've seen everything else the theater chain I work for is showin'...

You're thinking of The Lovely Bones (which was his second movie; the first was King Kong). Winter's Bone was by Debra Granik.

I doubt it.

Re: Movies Seen in 2012

I'm just curious what kept people away from it, Avengers still kicking strong I suppose.
Cause as a summer action film it fills that quota. Anti-Taylor Kitsch(sp)? sentiment?

71. Immer nie am Meer

Three men get trapped in a car after an accident with no means of getting help. It was a great premise and there are also a few good and/or funny moments, but in the end I thought the film was just okay.

Cursed - DVD

Picked up a couple of double packs from Fry's Electronics a bit ago, opened the first one up the other day, and started to watch Cursed. Written by Kevin Williamson, directed by Wes Craven, and starrin' Christina Ricci, Jesse Eisenberg & Joshua Jackson.

It took me three tries to finish it, 'cause I could only handle the awful a half hour at a time.

Terrible freakin' movie.

But, hey, for five bucks (or $2.50, since there's another movie on the DVD), I shouldn't expect too much, right?

And its confirmed - I have free advance screenin' passes for both Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter and Brave. YAY!

82. The Sting (A-)

The Sting -- I was lucky enough to see a restored print of this film last night, and minus one or two details, it really holds up. The best part is probably Paul Newman's totally irreverent performance, but Robert Redford, Robert Shaw, and the piles of character actors in supporting roles are also good. The only thing that really doesn't quite work plot-wise is a twist involving Redford's love interest, but it's such a minor note that it doesn't bring the movie down very far. The other odd thing is the very 1970s use of zooms, which undercuts the nostalgic, Saturday Evening Post cover look of mots of the movie, but it only happens a few times, so it's not a huge deal.

This print is going around the country as part of a 100 years retrospective of Universal Pictures. It looks terrific, so if the series makes a stop near you, it's worth seeing.

Re: Movies Seen in 2012

I vaguely recall watching that movie one time on TV with my father. Since it's being released on Blu-ray/DVD now, I've been meaning to check it out again.
