Geez, look at the box office these days...full of corny, boring, whack-ass movies...movies that make you wanna just puke your guts out...really, Hollywood is just gone to hell...if not for few like Scorcese, Copolla, De Palma, Tarantino, Coen Brothers, Rodriguez, and the likes Hollywood would just be pure, 100% unadulterated crap...that's just why I stick with british flicks by Guy Ritchie, Matthew Vaughn, etc
PLEASE, enough of the chick flicks...who gives a monkey's piss who's dating who? who gives a smoking dragon who's sleeping with who? Only phony, corny people...people who wanna sit on their couch and watch Jennifer Aniston movies all day, with a box of tissue paper lying all over the damn place, crying their eyes out...Gawd, I'm reaching under my bed right now for my magnum...and if I ever see one more corny, boring movie, just one...I'll shoot something...
There are a couple of artsy films out, but they may not be your style. "Bright Star" is about John Keats life and romance. "Serephine" is about a French housekeeper who was a painter discovered by the same person who discovered Picasso.
They both look good.
I've been considering "500 Days of Summer." Supposed to be good.
However, that being said, I do think you're right, fiery. There's just way too much crap coming out of Hollywood.
Yeah and these boring films your girlfriend wants to go and watch and wants you to go with her, but then you have to make up an excuse like I have to wash my hair or something, that's hollywood for ya!
I just got out of five years of having to watch every slapstick comedy to come out, the more stupid the better...I have to say, I really HATE slapstick and have rated these movies, complete with a nausea factor, in my reviews.
I can't agree more that Hollywood has certainly come out with a ton of crap. The vast majority of the big names that everyone seems to love (meaning mostly the younger actors) are pretty faces with little to no acting talent. Or, in some notable exceptions I can think of, they're people who HAD talent but happened to be good-looking and got thrown into two-dimensional roles that were intended only for eye candy. Anymore, some movies have absolutely no substance whatsoever and eye candy is all that's left. Sadly, this is what the general public wants...it's what sells.
That said, I do like the occasional chick flick...but they can't be predictable, and they have to have a story aside from two people chasing each other, playing hard to get, and eventually getting each other in the sack. My kind of chick flick is something more along the lines of Frida (starring Selma Hayek) or those wonderful doomed relationships like Sylvia (Gwyneth Paltrow)...talk about extremely depressing. Sick? Maybeso.
For the most part, I have to say that I've gotten to the point that there are some actors I'll watch no matter what...and most of the rest of the time I resign myself to having the opportunity to write one more bad review.
I currently have a very long list of reviews waiting to be written that should be a pretty nice run-down of what NOT to watch, but also looking at some good ones...I now have only myself to blame for the bad ones, at long last I have sole control over the Netflix queue!
if paranormal activity scares you its worth seeing i took my bf and he didnt know nothing about the movie, during the middle of the movie he looked at me with these scared eyes and asked me why i brought him to see this movie. hes been scared for the last 3 days. lol
I can understand what you mean, Fiery. Unfortunately, so long as people pay to see these movies, Hollywood will continue to crank them out...Notice how during any given week, they'll be the following at your local theater (I can't speak on your behalf--Nigeria--however):
A Romantic Comedy A Family Movie (Animation/CGI) A Drama An Action Movie A Suspense Thriller and/or A Horror Movie
All of these movie cover all of the major demographics, so they'll all make some kind of money. Just as long as you buy your ticket, everyone gets paid...The hell with you enjoying the movie
Geez, dont even take me there...after being pressured by a million and one friends of mind, mostly females, I finally sat down to watch it like a couple of days ago...I puked, no friggin' kidding...what garbage...the entire movie you see a boy and a girl staring into each other's eyes awkwardly, and that's romantic, that's passion...Yurk!
I know a ton of girls are going crazy for this thing and at first I honestly couldn’t understand the cult that evolved for it. Finally a girl at work let me read the book, being an avid reader, I hate to admit I thoroughly enjoyed the book, it was beautifully written. It’s a wonderful romance novel, that’s all it is. The modern day Romeo and Juliet but Romeo is a vampire. lol
Yes agreed with most, unfortunately someone is watching these movies which is why they keep getting produced. What I have learned is pre-teens and teens pretty much dominate the entertainment market (music and movies), so they are being catered to because they are the major consumers. The only thing that can explain Hanah Montana and Jonas Brothers success.....I'm gagging, but that's ok, I'm not 13.
Have to agree, Fiery - I was caught out with that the other night. She decided to watch a really crappy girly films - normally, I go on the internet, but she was in one of those 'spending quality time together' moods.
Tell her that if she wants to spend some quality time together, all she has to do is pick a GOOD movie.
....and if you use that line, I do hope you have a comfortable couch for one available, some women get awfully sensitive .
I will also add my vote to the dislike of the Twilight movie. I normally wouldn't go near something like that, but my sister begged and begged until I watched it with her when I was in town waiting for my significant other to fly in. It was the first time I saw him in person, I was there the night before, so I wasn't sleeping anyway...and she talked me into watching both Twilight and Yes Man. I have to say that Yes Man wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be, but I stopped seeing teen romances as anything other than annoying when I was...about nine. She swears the books are much better, all I have to say is I sure hope so or the world is in even worse shape than I thought...not that I'd go out of my way to find out firsthand, unless I run out of anything else to read...and the library has a lot of them there book thingies.
I rarely go to movies anymore and the last one I saw was Star Trek. I thought they did an excellent job unlike most of the movies I have seen based on TV shows! I Spy sucked. Starsky and Hutch could have been a winner if it had been played as a serious effort. Wild Wild West??? EEEEK!
I did also like Appaloosa based on the book by Robert B. Parker.

It seems like there are more and more remakes as time goes by. Most of the remakes don't do well. Should the makers stop remaking movies?Is it just me or do movies seem to resemble eachother more and...
