I think film's pretty under-appreciated on this forum. Like, we never talk about it or anything. So go ahead and post what movie you watched last and share whatever thoughts you had. Rate it, write a mini-review, write a detailed essay/analysis or just say the title. Or respond to someone else's opinion about a movie. Whatever. Then come back as you watch movies and post about them!

I just rewatched Punch-Drunk Love, which to this day is still my favorite Paul Thomas Anderson film and one of my favorite films over all.

While I was watching it, it kind of occurred to me that it's structurally really similar to There Will Be Blood and there are a lot of parallels between it and his latest film The Master. It'd be really silly of me to go in-depth about it when I'm not even sure if anyone here has watched any of these movies let alone all three so I'll just link this analysis and if anyone can relate they can talk about it here or something.

Anyway, what have you watched?

I re-watched A Clockwork Orange a little while ago.

I'm quite fond of the movie, even if I wonder how it would've been had it incorporated the actual final chapter of the novel.Maybe I should sit down and read it sometime?


Or not.

I watched Jurassic Park 3D last week, which was actually my first time ever to see that movie. Needless to say, the movie itself was decent, though the 3D was a bit underdone. I probably should have just watched the original, but yeah.

Or not.

I've read about half of A Clockwork Orange but then lots of stuff happened and I never got to finish it. I intend to finish it one day, though. But anyway, I don't think the movie needs the final chapter—Stanley Kubrick certainly didn't think so since he found out about it later and decided he wouldn't have included it anyway.

To be honest, though, I used to think that movie was the awesomest film ever, but I started having second thoughts about it after I watched it like six or seven times. It's still good.

I have seen the original movie, I wondered about how well the 3D effects went in the release.

I have watched MAMA yesterday, the ending leaves a possible sequel to me.

Man, movies must not be really popular on this forum. I just watched Seeking Asian Female the other night because I heard about it on (don't laugh) NPR. The movie started off intending to explore the Baby Boomer obsession with Asian women but in the end it's really about the thin line between personal filmmaking and documentary filmmaking. Documentaries are a pretty new medium to me, so right now everything seems really cool to me.

I recently went on a masochistic bender and started on my Land Before Time Challenge, except not (basically watch all the movies in one sitting). Saw LBT 2, 3 and 4, and despite these movies being so completely kiddy and removed from the tone of the original movie, I can still respect them on some basic level. Yes, it's geared towards kids and junk, but at least these try to teach life lessons. LBT 3 was probably the best of this lot if only for the fact that there is rampant dinosaur racism.

I recently found by pure luck in the old computer a full copy of the movie "Click" .
I re-watched it, and it's just as awesome as almost any movie with Adam Sandler, but it's the only one (so far) where I've had hard time not to cry near the end, when he says his last words to his family.

I finally watched Star Trek Into Darkness on BluRay yesterday and oh god, it is so much better than the first Abrams one and features some pretty weird... mid-warp venting of people. Spaghettification is freaky.

Also, my playing Metroid Prime 2 in Sanctuary Fortress made my dad think of Tron, so we watched that too! I need to look into the Tron 2.0 game. Apparently, it was considered the canonical sequel, before Tron Legacy came out.

Have you seen Punch-Drunk Love? I'm not a Sandler fan but I'm a Paul Thomas Anderson fan and that movie is one of my favorites of all time.

edit: I just realized I talked about that same movie in the opening post. Oops, way to overexpose it, Sofi.

Haven't seen it yet, but I do remember to have heard a movie with that title.
I might see it if I can

I watched all four of the Pirates of the Caribbean films this week. I'm desperate for the fifth film to be released already! It's annoying that you only get one POTC film every three years!

Thankfully, the last film was released back in 2011, which should mean that next year we'll be getting the fifth installment!

I recently got a new part-time college job as a Chinese delivery boy, and have been very interested in Chinese culture, and its language/writing system. So, recently, being bored, I re-watched Godzilla 2000 on DVD! Tons of explosions, action, and monster battles between Godzilla and that UFO thing. Oh, and the mouth movements of the characters are not matched with the audio (Chinese->English audio dubbing, lol).

What is weird is that the insert inside of the DVD mentions that the filming crew couldn't wait to make the Godzilla movie planned for 2005, so they made Godzilla 2000 during its production. And, to this day, we Americans have never received Godzilla 2005 yet (or whatever it would have been called ).

Sorry to break this to you but ... Godzilla is Japanese. How can you claim to be very interested in Chinese culture and not notice how Godzilla doesn't fit at all with Chinese culture? Did you mean to say you're interested in Japanese or East Asian culture instead?

It's been out for a while now, but I finally got around to watching Cloud Atlas this week.
I know it got a fairly luke-warm reception at release, and there's a couple really awful, obvious green screens, but man, overall? That was a beautiful film. One of those movies where I just had to sit after it ended and just.. take it all in.

I watched "The Full Monty" last night. I really don't need to explain what that film is about. You should know already.

Umm... yeah. I realized my mistake after I went to bed last night, lol, that Godzilla is Japanese. I might to say I'm interested in Oriental cultures.

Downfall...

I watched the Italian dub last night, named appropriately "La caduta".

What a load of crazy people...

Posting a bit late, but I watched Riddick while I was in Anaheim from the 9th to the 14th. It starts a bit dry, but it really picks up. Not too shabby for an independent production. Funny story about that, too, since the studio that refused to fund it wanted to buy distribution rights for the US.
