At the movies

Is there any mainstream stuff you do like - like a yank blockbuster? I used to until producers started fiddling with them based on test audiences and cgi. Bit unimpressed with suicide squad and predator as the original cuts sounded way better until it was dumbed down or altered for the masses. Especially considering Shane black and David Ayers track record.
Sounds like gotti was a complete disaster - they had so much material to work with.

Yeah right, cheers for that.

I think the only other Korean subtitled one I’ve seen is old boy which although was brilliant, it was too disturbing.


#7227

Old Boy is very good.

I saw the devil and The Chaser are two more very good Korean films as well.

Along with another dozen or so others.

Korean film has been very strong over the last 15 years or so.


#7228

Seems that way. Must have inspired Hyundai

I tend to avoid the blockbusters. I enjoyed A Simple Favour last week. I generally like the Coen brothers. I like films of particular genres, and horror, space fiction and superhero movies are not three of those genres, nor is much “crass comedy” which the likes of Ferrell, Sandler occupy.


#7230

What is your favourite superhero film though, surely you have seen a couple?

The Host is a pretty entertaining movie

The Raid 1 and 2 are still the best foreign films I have seen. Hard Boiled just behind Raid 2


#7231

Superhero films of the last 7-8 years have been utter ■■■■.


#7232

Alien and Aliens back to back at Melbourne IMAX on wed night.

Going to be awesome. Some films just don’t get old.


#7233

Batman trilogy was pretty good.
Dunno if bale was right man for the job


#7234

Raid 1 & 2 are class


#7235

Never heard of them. Not likely to look them up either.


#7236

You are missing out Noonan.

I would say the fight scenes are some of the best put on screen.

Both films were made in Indonesia on shoestring budgets and no CGI but hugely innovative. Just pure filmmaking and incredible editing.


#7237

From memory Raid was so well regarded by Abrams he put the cast in Star Wars Episode 7. They got eaten by the big bowling ball monster thing that was chasing Han.


#7238

Just the way the films are payed out, just brilliant. As good as the fight scenes were in the first one, the 2nd raises the bar to a standard I don’t think can be beat. That last one in the hallway and kitchen…just wow


#7239

There is a film coming out called ‘The Nun’ - watched the trailer

Seriously, who the fark watches that short of ■■■■■

Seriously no, NO NO NO

NOOOOOO


#7240

When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together, they uncover the order’s unholy secret. Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of a demonic nun.

I’d watch it.
Do they turn into sexy vampires?


#7241

I enjoy watching supernatural horror - guessing you’re not a horror fan.


#7242

You’d be better off going and finding someone who gives a ■■■■.


#7243

If you want sexy vampires, try The Hunger with David Bowie, Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon.


#7244

Or a swag of Hammer Horror movies.
