Weekend Update(s)

1. Transcendence (2014): Max Headroom, but not funny, interesting, or entertaining.
2. Cuban Fury (2014): Nick Frost dusts off his salsa dance moves to impress Rashida Jones before she gets wooed by Chris O'Dowd. This was pretty damn funny, and it really helps that I like all three actors.
3. Trust Me (2013): This flick focuses on the hectic life of Agent Coulson, Talent Agent of SHIELD as he tries to strike a deal to get his client a role in a new big YA flick. Not bad at all.
4. Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas (2013): Mads Mikkelsen + a horse + a sword + VENGEANCE. Definitely enjoyed it, but then again I'm a total sucker for my main man Mads.
5. Belle (2013): During the height of slavery, Matthew Goode sires a daughter with a lady of color and leaves her at his brother's house while he goes to war/battle/whatever. Flash forward some 15ish years, and we see this family who loves her as their own daughter, but never acknowledge it in the presence of company or in public. Not too shabby.
6. Insomnia (1997): The original version of the Pacino/Swank/Williams movie. This was a bit more interesting than the remake (which I didn't like at all).
7. Borgman (2013): Some dudes who live in the ground work their way into the lives of a well-off family, seemingly just to fuck with them. This was one wacky-ass movie and I totally dug it.
8. Spaceballs Upon hearing of Joan Rivers' death, I knew I had to give this a revisit, but seeing scenes with her character and John Candy together was just another punch in the gut. Still love the movie though.
9. Robin Hood: Men in Tights What better way to follow up Spaceballs?
JohnLocke2342 at 05:15 PM Sep 08

I've been looking forward to both Cuban Fury and Belle (specifically for Gugu.. How was she?)

Also Spaceballs/Men in Tights is a brilliant 1-2

JFernandes at 05:17 PM Sep 08

Gugu's solid. I just wished there was more Matthew Goode.

Weekend Update

1. October Sky (1999): Showed this for the kids at work. Better than I remember it being, but then again I only saw it the one time in school almost 14 years ago.
2. The Birdcage (1996): Apart from the singing and dancing, this was pretty damn funny. The stand-out for me is Hank Azaria, even though his character's Guatemalan and has zero Guatemalan characteristics.
3. Rage (2014): Nic Cage plays a man with a mob background whose daughter is shot and killed. And now he's out for JUSTICE. It was all right, nothing great.
4. Killing American Style (1990): From the director of Samurai Cop, this is yet another low-budget action flick with horrible acting. Not as unintentionally funny as Samurai Cop and not really worth watching.
5. Capital (2012): CEOs, banking, mergers, acquisitions. Pretty boring subject matter turned into a rather good flick of treachery and deceit.
6. The Raid 2 (2014): This sequel actually has a story to it, and it's pretty good. You know what's even better? The relentlessly brutal action scenes. Holy shit was this movie nuts. An absolute blast.
7. Only Lovers Left Alive (2013): A solid flick about contemporary-day centuries-old vampires (played by Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton) and how they get by. I really dug it. What's more is that Mia Wasikowska has a role that I'd normally peg as a Juno Temple role, playing a feisty, free-spirited blonde.
8. Parks and Recreation: Season 6: Yet another consistently funny season. Ron Swanon is still the best.
WalkAway at 04:37 PM Aug 24

Was Mia good in the role? She's always so snoozeville to me so I'd be interested in seeing her doing something different.

JFernandes at 04:39 PM Aug 24

^ Yup! She finally got a non-plain-Jane role and I feel like she more or less nailed it.

VitamanMan8 at 05:11 PM Aug 24

Mia Wasikovska bores me to tears.

Weekend Update

1. Need for Speed (2014): Jesse Pinkman seeks revenge the only way he knows how: by racing. This is waaaaay more fun than I'd expected it to be. The entire second act is basically Vanishing Point, and it's pretty awesome. Definitely check this one out.
2. Filth (2013): Young Chuck Xavier is working on getting promoted within the police force. And he's a complete asshole about it. This was pretty funny and very vulgar.
3. World's Greatest Dad (2009): A Robin Williams movie about suicide. I didn't know what it was about going in, so...poorly-timed I guess? It was pretty good, though.
4. Windows (1980): The one and only directing gig from the cinematographer of The Godfather trilogy, this is a movie about obsession gone to extremes. As expected, it's technically well-made and has some great shots, but the story itself wasn't anything great.
5. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze (1991): I ordered a pizza, so I watched this and the next movie whilst I devoured said pizza. I was really surprised by how well this aged. It might be funner than the first, but that could just be because there's no Corey Feldman.
6. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III (1993): Yeah...this one's not that good at all. BUT we get Casey Jones back, and he's teaching time-displaced Japanese warriors about hockey. That could've been a movie in and of itself.
YoshioKun13 at 07:35 AM Aug 20

No Feldman, definitely.

Casey Jones and the fish-out-of-water Japanese stuff in NY was probably the best part of that trainwreck of a movie.

Weekend Update

1. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014): Third time seeing it. Still LOVE it.
2. Under the Skin (2013): Scarlett Johansson gets men in her van and bad things happen. Very light on dialogue and the story was decent enough, but the look and score of the movie really shine. Definitely worth a watch.
3. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014): Have I said I love this movie? Because I do I do I do I do-o.
4. Locke (2013): Tom Hardy in a car for 80 minutes putting on a CLINIC. All he's doing is talking on the phone while driving. That's the whole movie. And it's absolutely RIVETING.
5. Oculus (2013): Nebula vs. an evil mirror. This was a pretty so-so horror movie, but every time Karen Gillan yelled, it reminded me how hilarious she was in Guardians of the Galaxy when she'd yell at random unseen lackeys to get the hell outta her way. EVERYTHING COMES BACK TO GOTG.
6. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990): I rewatched this instead of seeing the new one. The blu-ray transfer is pretty rough, but, even after all these years, the flick's really lost none of its charm. Don't get me wrong, it's not that great a movie, but it brought me right back to my childhood and I still kinda love it.
7. TMNT (2007): I always feel like this installment was criminally overlooked, especially since it's probably the best Turtles movie. The animation is great, the fight choreography is stellar (the Raph vs. Leo rooftop fight is so good), and the story and pacing just feel right. If you haven't seen it, get on it.
JFernandes at 03:55 PM Aug 11

I should mention, there's some pretty wacky stuff that goes on in it.

YoshioKun13 at 09:57 PM Aug 11

Yeah the BR transfer for TMNT 1990 is underwhelming, but still pretty cool to see the craft of those Jim Henson costumes in HD now. The little bumpy textures of the skin, awesome.

I'll be hitting up the 2007 CG movie any day now, first time viewing.

JohnLocke2342 at 04:06 AM Aug 12

I'm fucking dying to see Locke man, I hear Hardy is a powerhouse in this from everyone who watched it.

Weekend Update

1. Dom Hemingway (2013): Jude Law plays a boisterously egotistical safe-cracker just out of prison, looking to get the money he's owed. Hilarious hijinks ensue. This was really fun.
2. Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation (1962): Watched based on WA's recommendation, this is about James Stewart begrudgingly taking his entire family (as opposed to just his wife) on a summer vacation. There's some really funny stuff in here, and I'd refuse to believe this didn't influence National Lampoon's Vacation at least a little.
3. Noah (2014): The story of Noah. I watched this because I was pretty much guaranteed to see a pair of rhinos. That's all I wanted. AND I WAS DENIED. There was a pretty sweet hippo, but that's NOT GOOD ENOUGH. A definite pass.
4. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014): I've been waiting for this movie for five years and it delivered on pretty much every level and I love it.
5. Sharknado 2 (2014): It's Sharknado, but in New York. And with a bunch of bad cameos. And a cyborg Tara Reid. Fun enough to laugh at, but nowhere near being a good movie.
6. No God, No Master (2012): A pre-FBI FBI agent is investigating a series of bombing attempts in Massachusetts that leads him to a group of anarchists. These are the events that led up to the Sacco and Vanzetti trial, but they weren't the focus of the movie. It was pretty interesting. The only real weak link I found was a prominently-featured teenage son being badly acted.
7. Half of a Yellow Sun (2013): Chiwetel Ejoifor and Thandie Newton have a shitty relationship during the Nigerian Civil War. That's pretty much the gist of things. It was well-acted and well-shot, but it focuses on the relationship part in the first half, and then the war in the second, almost feeling like two separate movies. Still worth a watch, though.
8. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014): Still love it.
WalkAway at 04:23 PM Aug 05

Glad you also enjoyed Mr. Hobbs!

Solid month right there

Weekend Update

1. The Purge: Anarchy (2014): The moment Frank Grillo's character is introduced, I turned to my friend in the theater and said, "Oh shit, how awesome would it be if this guy was The Punisher?" And, sure enough, he puts on Punisher-esque gear, grabs a bunch of guns, and gets in his Punisher-esque armored car. So, going into this with the mindset that this is an unofficial Punisher movie, I had a fucking great time. Easily better than the first, and I didn't hate the first at all. It's just too bad Grillo is already Crossbones in the Marvel cinematic universe.
2. Up (2009): Showed this for the kids at work, and a first-time watch for me. It was pretty good. The only characters I actually enjoyed were Kevin, Doug, and the rest of the dogs. The humans weren't really likeable: the old man was cantankerous, the OTHER old guy was insane, and the kid was selfish (he was never helping the old guy to help him, only helping him to get a badge, which we're reminded of constantly). But seriously, the animals make it worth watching.
3. Enemies Closer (2013): JCVD leads a team to a small lake island (on which Tom Everett Scott is the park ranger) to recover a missing drug shipment. And Orlando "Make 7. Up yours." Jones is trying to kill TES. But they have to work together against JCVD, who also happens to be an environmentalist vegan. JCVD is kinda funny at times, but this wasn't all that good.
4. 300: Rise of an Empire (2014): It's pretty much the same as the first, but instead of Gerard Butler, you get a charisma-free Sullivan Stapleton, and instead of (or rather, in addition to) Xerxes, you get a totally badass Eva Green. If you liked the first, you'll probably dig this one too.
5. A Fighting Man (2014): Dominic Cooper (sans awesome Killer Elite facial hair :( ) is a small-town boxer famous not for his win streak, but for the fact that he's never been knocked down in a fight. From start to finish, the movie is framed around just one fight, but every round or so, it flashes back to events leading up to the bout, giving insight to his history, his opponent, and some of the spectators. It was decent.
6. Bad Words (2013): Jason Bateman uses loopholes to enter the national spelling bee. And he's a complete asshole about it. And, more importantly, it's hilarious. I was very surprised by how much I liked this movie.
7. Open Grave (2013): Sharlto Copley and a group of other people all wake up at a house with amnesia. There's a pit with dead bodies, but they don't know who, if any, of them is the killer(s), so they look for clues to try to piece together what's going on. It might just be my love for Copley talking, but I really like this flick, especially the way it slowly revealed what was going on.
Derek237 at 04:08 AM Jul 29

Apparently this Frank Grillo guy is the shit and I need to see that movie.

JFernandes at 04:20 AM Jul 29

I honestly have no idea if the movie's any good if you don't treat it as a Punisher movie.

Cochise at 05:37 AM Jul 29

Keep forgetting to watch Open grave

JFernandes updated his STATUS: about 1 month ago

So, The Purge: Anarchy might be the best Punisher movie we've gotten so far.
JFernandes at 05:06 PM Jul 22

Fantastic Four was Fox, not Marvel.

Besides, Evans can't say no to a comic movie.

ericodarko at 05:13 PM Jul 22

yeah, I know the fact that it was different studios helped but it could and should be done in this case.

might just have to check this out then. Couldn't be worse than the frst, right?

JFernandes at 05:14 PM Jul 22

I didn't mind the first, but this one's definitely better.

Weekend Update

1. Ms. 45 (1981): A woman is assaulted by men twice within the first 10 minutes, but gets the best (and gun) of her second assailant. From there on out, it's all about killing men with her freshly-stolen .45. Not bad.
2. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014): Set 10 years after Rise, most of the planet's human population has been wiped out by the "simian flu" and apes are living peacefully away from the remaining people. Shit goes awry. This was right on par with the excellent Rise. It definitely upped its CGI game, since there where only a handful of times where I thought "that looks fake." Definitely check it out if you somehow haven't already.
3. Afflicted (2013): A found-footage flick about a couple of guys on a trip around the world that takes a turn when one of them gets sick. Like, crazy sick. Awesomely sick. I liked it quite a bit, but I'm a sucker for found-footage, so take that as you will.
4. That Awkward Moment (2014): Three friends vow to stay single for a month (maybe 2? I don't remember), all the while two of them are secretly trying to bring their relationships to the next level. The one sticking to his guns (Zac Efron) is doing everything he can to remain single, despite the efforts of the girl he's seeing (POOTS!), so as other lame romantic comedies go, he gets self-destructive at the end of the second act, and then needs to embarrass himself publicly to win her back. Just like in Crazy Stupid Love, which was pretty good up until the last act. So, yeah, 2-thirds of this was good while the last third was passable.
5. Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975): A class from an all-girl school in Australia go on a Valentine's Day picnic, but three students and a chaperone go missing. What's left is the toll it takes on the school: the teachers' and fellow students' feelings of loss and the headmistress's worry of the toll being taken on the business side of the school (being in the newspaper, being down three tuitions for the next year). It was told and shot well, but I didn't get too much out of it.
6. The Lego Movie (2014): Revisit - Figured I'd finally give my favorite movie of the year (so far) a rewatch with commentary, and it was pretty hilarious. You get the directors, Chris Pratt, Alison Brie, Will Arnett, Charlie Day and (briefly) Elizabeth Banks all mostly quipping, but occasionally giving insight and pointing out little jokes in the background. It's a ton of fun.
7. Orphan Black: Season 2: Finally got the DVD set from work. People get captured, then escape, then get captured, then escape. The story's good, not great. It's Maslany that really sticks out and makes me come back for more. I'd watch a whole series of just Helena going on crazy adventures, but only if they got rid of that stupid going-crazy theme music that plays every time she either shows up or does something violent.
WalkAway at 04:20 AM Jul 22

haha yes the Helena music is a bit much

JFernandes updated his STATUS: 2 months ago

For a 2-hour movie that, from start to finish, is filled with prominent CGI animals, DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES had MAYBE only a handful of spots where I thought to myself, "that looked kinda fake." This flick is proof above all others that you don't need to use live animals in Hollywood.
JFernandes created a LIST: 2 months ago

Weekend Update

1. Enemy (2013): Jake Gyllenhaal re-teams with director Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners) to tell a story about a man at odds with what appears to be his doppelganger. People seem to either really hate or really love this flick, and I'm definitely in the latter camp.
2. Meet the Robinsons (2007): Showed this at work for the kids and found myself totally enjoying it. It's kinda like a Terminator for kids and was pretty damn funny.
3. The Loved Ones (2009): Prom torture porn. That's pretty much all this is, but somehow it's got a bit of heart to it. Not too shabby.
4. Lone Survivor (2013): A biographical tale about the rise and fall of the hip-hop group, Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, as told through the metaphor of a modern battlefield. Really, thinking that was the only way I could really enjoy the movie. It had some really good action, but that was about it.
5. Graceland (2012): A kidnapping goes awry in the Phillipines, so now a father does everything he can to get his daughter back. It's a pretty decent thriller.
6. The Bridge: Season 1: Finally caught this on DVD. The entire season really only covers one case, and wraps it up fairly nicely, but apparently there's a second season. I just hope it's not centered around one of the uninteresting side stories from the first season.
JFernandes created a LIST: 2 months ago

Weekend Update

1. Jack Irish: Dead Point (2014): I'd call this the weakest of the three Jack Irish TV movies, but it's still a solid PI flick.
2. Non-Stop (2014): So, this looked like it was just going to be Taken-on-a-Plane, but it was way better than that. Surprised the hell out of me how into I was.
3. Son of Batman (2014): DC's latest animated film, and probably the one I liked the least. I really enjoyed Damian Wayne in the comics, but there's just something lost in translation. I also tend to get bored any time Deathstroke is invovled in anything, so there's that.
4. Deadly Blessing (1981): I watched this due to Gonadsgo69's recommendation, and was pretty well-entertained throughout. Ernest Borgnine with that Hittite beard was the best.
5. Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014): Jim Kirk goes to work for Elliot Ness as a government agent sent to gather intel from Moscow. Kirck kicks crazy ass at times and yet, overall, this was pretty uninteresting.
6. Wolf Creek 2 (2013): We're brought back to the Australian outback where the killer from the first movie is still killing and, this time, dropping really bad one-liners. However, I just imagined it was Wolverine in Australia fucking with people and had a pretty good time with it.
7. Snowpiercer (2014): Captain America and his Howling Commandos need to work their way train car by train car to the engine of the train (the Snowpiercer in question) in order to get control of the train. I'm calling it Under Siege 2 meets The Raid meets Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and it was pretty awesome. It's a whole ton of violence with oddly comedic parts, Battle Royale style.
8. Divorce Italian Style (1962): In Italy, it was (maybe still is?) illegal to get a divorce, so the lead character decides that the only way to be able to run off with his younger female cousin is to justifiably kill his wife while catching her in the act of adultery. Problem is, his wife is completely loyal to him, so: HIJINKS! This is a pretty fun satire.
9. Seduced and Abandoned (1964): The director's follow-up to Divorce Italian Style, this satire is about a daughter who gets down and dirty with her sister's fiancee. Equally funny as the previous movie.
10. Knights of Badassdom (2013): LARPers accidently summon a real live demon that goes about slaughtering LARPers. It was fun to see Steve Zahn again, and Peter Dinklage is great too. It's a pretty fun watch and has some decent gore.
11. Omar (2013): Palestinian freedom fighters have the government breathing down their necks, all while a love-triangle-ish story develops among them, and it is done extremely well. This was up for the foreign language Oscar last year, and totally deserved the nom.
MJZ at 05:06 PM Jul 07

I almost bought Son of Batman when it first came close. But now I'm glad I didn't.
