I feel annoyed by all those people opening new threads to explain things and trying to calm everyone down. Swearing and threatening to leave is no way out of this dilemma, but in my opinion we should do everything we can so that the admins know what we’re against. And for most people (like me) the only way to do that is to express our feelings in…[Read more]

That’s a bit too… naive for someone who doesn’t know anything about the incident. Isn’t it?

Really? I found that so boring and unconvincing… And most of the movie wasn’t even about Soylent Green… The end is stupid, but at least the crowd scenes were good.
12 Angry Men
Perfect – exactly what the premise promises! Never boring, quite convincing…[Read more]
I guess brickfilms aren’t the medium prof is seeking for. Brickfilms are too long and too tedious to make to develop deep characters and complex plots as prof requires. There are only a few brickfilms which include that, and even less succeed. The average brickfilmer needs a dose of motivation (coming from the feeling of accomplishment after…[Read more]

Haha, well put. I share your thoughts. It’s the same with the Star Wars trilogy, it’s a shame it’s so trashy and almost unwatchable when those movies were real highlights in your young life.
I watched Casino yesterday, Scorsese’s directing even made 3 hours running-time fly by.
‘Tis indeed no country for young men.
Every once in a while, a movie comes along that points out the things you have often thought about but didn’t want to elaborate to others simply because you thought you were wrong / the others wouldn’t care. Adaptation does so with an ingenious and very enjoyable story, a stunning performance by Nicolas Cage (Meryl Streep and Chris…[Read more]
While the story was pretty cliché (the usual rise and fall of a mob gangster), the direction was superb. It reminded me a lot of Departed (tight editing, always much happening, no pauses, long camera pans, much music) and made sure no one gets bored. There are some Scorsese films I can’t stand (like Taxi Driver), but this one was…[Read more]
Night Owl, you’re right about the train robbery, I just didn’t mention it because it was rather short compared to the other long scenes in the first 90 minutes.
Normally I detest fantasy comedies, but this one was *mucho* enjoyable. From start to finish there was always something interesting and unexpected happening, the cast was terrific (especially DeNiro, of course), the pacing was wonderful, and I wasn’t bored for the whole 120 minutes. Highly recommended!

That definately kicked an uncountable amount of arse, Smeagol! I appreciate the fact that due to the tight schedule and the length of your brilliantly written poem (did you do that alone? Even the sentence rhythms are perfect) you were forced into a faster pacing than you usually prefer. Your other films are so much slower, and sometimes it works…[Read more]
I didn’t like him in the beginning either, but his performance grew on me.
How did you like the end?
Christian Bale can play every role, even a cussing, unlikable ex-Marine with drug-problems. Very convincing and a pleasure to watch.
The end wasn’t as good as the rest of the film (just like in 3:10 to Yuma), but it still is worth watching it. I’m always grateful for something that doesn’t feel like Hollywood, and Harsh Times…[Read more]
3:10 to Yuma
The ending almost ruined the whole movie for me, it was so implausible. All in all, it was nothing special, but fairly well done. The actors were really good! (Christian Bale <3)
Thanks for your answers, guys. I feared to have written the whole text for nothing.
No offence (The following isn’t meant to be arrogant), but: I feel sorry for You, that You can’t enjoy old-style-films.
Or is it a certain kind of story-telling you can’t stand? (Do The Sopranos or Deadwood bore you too?)
Like I said, it’s…[Read more]
OK. Keep in mind that I don’t want to offend your taste in films (which can’t be bad, considering your films) while reading the following:
My biggest complaint is that I found the stories boring. Really boring. I didn’t care for anything, the scenes stretched on too long, everybody was talking too slow. An example for this is the “intro”…[Read more]
I guess I’ll never get what people find in The Godfather. I recently saw it for the first time, and I bitterly regretted not quitting after the first 30 minutes. I sat through the whole boring thing, and I wasn’t rewarded for that. I could go into detail, but I won’t, since I can’t change anyone’s mind.
E: There is no “I” in team, but there…[Read more]
Stupid, annoying, unrewarding. I wonder why it was written. Why did the writer write it? How did the director keep the motivation to direct it? Why didn’t the actors realize they were in a stupid movie and walked out of it?
Once you get over the amazing production values, it’s actually a pretty mediocre film. Acting…[Read more]
It’s “just” a straight-forward shooter, but for what it was, it was really good. The action was gripping (something most action movies don’t achieve), and it was never boring, though there weren’t any twists or something like that. Way better than the dump that Shoot em up is.
