Aside from the random shit the brother with the beard said I never liked it either. I saw a guy who looked just like him in Vegas last April and it was pretty hilarious. The guy was making a killing getting people to pay for a picture with him.

Yeah, that guy's my neighbor, Zach. :lol: That image he's got going with the beard is pretty huge right now.

12 Years a Slave; beautiful cinematography, amazingly acted, fucked up movie. Some cringe worthy scenes in there. Def one of my top flicks of the year.

Also recently saw the original Oldboy, holy crap the American remake looks like a turd on top of a turd. I mean not all US remakes suck. I dug Let Me In and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Dallas Buyers Club was solid, but with the premise it could have been so much better. Matthew McConaughey is amazing in it though.

Saw Thor: Dark World today, and I gotta say, that movie was EPIC in the true since of the word.Only thing that would have made it better is if "Twilight Of The Thunder God" was played somewhere in it lol.

Today I watched the Conjuring and the Maniac remake.

The Conjuring was good but I don't fully get the hype behind it. Almost everyone who ever told me about this movie made it out to be one of the greatest horror films ever made.

The Maniac remake was really fucked up but pretty interesting. I was seriously uncomfortable at some parts.

This is me, though if I believe a movie is going to be good, I won't look at the rating until after I see it, that way I can possibly enjoy a great movie that happens to get crap reviews.

No doubt. Josh Gad has had a handful of TV and movie gigs so far, but if this role doesn't get him some damn good offers, then something is truly rotten in Hollywood. His comic timing is excellent.

The fact of the matter is, Olaf really doesn't fit in with the rest of the plot, but the movie wouldn't have been the same without him. It would still been very good, but the character is so endearing that the audience can't help but laugh out loud at him, and his presence takes the movie from good to great.

NA Box Office stats

3: $105 million
4: $54 million

While the 4th one shows a steep drop off, 54 mil is nothing to sneeze at. But of course, you can't polish a turd.

Won't give anything away but this destroys the first movie and I swear to god I don't know how I'm gonna wait one year to see the finale. And oh btw, thank god I did not see this in 3D...my head would have exploded and I would have gotten sick. It always looked like Steve Harris edits the action scenes. Yea, there's some little silly parts that are a stretch too unbelievable, but it is a fantasy film so it's forgiven.

I don't wanna frighten you about it, I'm just saying as a personal matter, I physically can't handle 3D movies because they make me dizzy and full of headaches. It's a very busy movie and 15 minutes in I said to myself I'm glad this isn't in 3D, I would have left.

I went by myself last night, the wife refuses to go with me...LOTR and Hobbit are sorta my things alone, she hates them with a passion. Drives her nuts when I marathon it and stick the LOTR extended versions on during a lazy Saturday and basically take 12 hours for myself in another world completely ignoring her :lol:.

I prefer going by myself too. My wife has the uncanny ability to always talk at the worst time during movies. Case in point, right after Gandalf falls off the Bridge of Kazah-dun and it gets all sad with that great music she'll always ask something stupid like, "he comes back, right" or "what did he say".

Just got back from the Hobbit, and this is what I think of it: MOVIE OF THE WHOLE FREAKIN' YEAR!

I have made up my mind that Legolas is the best character in the history of movies (IMO), he and Tauriel both had some of the best fight scenes I've ever seen, and I love seeing more duel-wield blade action from him.

I totally agree...and since it's the only movie I've seen in theaters this year, I doubly agree!

Too bad Legolas isn't in the Hobbit books at all, and Tauriel is simply is a made-up character out of thin air. All is forgiven though, that movie rocked. Honestly, I didn't want it to end, I wished it was 7 hours long, I could have pulled it off no sweat.

I don't get the people that are hating on Tauriel (not saying you are), I mean if you think about it she could have easily just been one of the wood-elves not named in the book.Legolas was obviously added in to attract more appeal, but who cares, he could of also easily been at Mirkwood when Bilbo was there, Tolkien just didn't name him, and I think it's an awesome chance for another great LOTR character to make a return.And what and ending! Everybody in the theater said 'No' almost at the same time right before it did.

The one thing I hate though is the people out there who are saying 'To much was changed from the books'.WHO FREAKIN' CARES! It is a book aimed for children, they gotta change it up some to make it to appeal to everyone.Most people who don't like the movies are purists that want them EXACTLY like the books, and since they are somewhat different they just choose to not like them, and not even acknowledge that some of the changes and additions are actually good.

Maideneer
12-13-2013, 04:07 PM
I have to agree again and not be so purist about all this, I never was though even with LOTR. Especially because I don't remember the book much, I'm not a good reader and I don't ever remember any book because I take 6 months to finish a small book, I'm a slow ass.

Those types of endings are apparently not Peter Jackson's thing, but I'm glad it ended like that even though I really REALLY don't want to wait another year to finish this story.

Before I went to the theater last night I spent 3 hours watching the first one again to refresh my memory, since I hadn't seen it since I went last year. Boy I'm glad I did that...transitioning seamlessly from 1st to 2nd was a good idea and really helped me jump right in.

I could go on and on blathering about LOTR and Hobbit, as long as someone wants to go on about with me, I'm game.

I'm can't believe I'm going to say this and I'm probably in the minority but I didn't like the new Hobbit as much as the first one.

:eek:

What I did like; the action was great. Legolas and Tauriel's fight scenes were great. They were really the only times I even noticed the 3D. I didn't mind Tauriel at all. The love triangle thing could have an interesting ending considering which Dwarves die (in the book anyway). And the last part with Smaug was great. I really liked how they made his voice menacing but also understandable. He was just a cool, well-done character.

What I didn't like; the added in bits seemed more added in this time. They really could've cut, well, everything with Sauron and the Orcs and made it two movies instead of three. I'm not hating on the fact that they added so much, it was just to obvious to me. I remember Beorn having a much larger role in the book. His inclusion seemed pointless, even more pointless than Tom Bambadil. But, I'm sure a badass skin-changer will have a bigger part in the third movie. And I don't remember the book too well but Thorin got pretty dark a few times and I can't remember that from the book.

And then there's that ending, which was just a piss-off. It'll be really interesting to see how the third movie pans out since I remember Smaugs attack being in the last few chapters of the books. But there's a lot of other loose ends to tie-up. Just none of them are in the books.

I think the biggest reason that I didn't like it as much was that I had nine years of anticipation for the first one and only a year for this one. And my expectations were so high for this one that I was bound to be disappointed. Maybe disappointed isn't the word, because I still really enjoyed it. And the lack of Frodo really hurt it.

I'll give it an eight out of ten.

Maideneer
12-13-2013, 09:17 PM
It's hard to say what was useful or not in this film to the development of the story, because the third one has yet to be released and we don't know which way they are going. It drives me bat shit that they bumped the release date from July back to December 2014 again, this one year thing is ludicrous. For LOTR, ok maybe, but this is a different model and make, and I feel the overall interest and bombast for this one is slightly lower, so let's just get on with it already.

It's not the greatest movie on god's green earth and never will be, but I'm not going to act all nutty and pretend like some of the plots are the greatest offense mankind has ever seen.

The dark/sinister parts always resonate with me, I connect with them instantly.

Could I have done without some parts, sure. Do I think the LOTR films so far are better...by far yes. But it's ok, I'm enjoying the new scenery, the new adaptations, the new characters. I'm treating these films as a supplement to the LOTR movies...simply there to add some depth. Almost like a good opening band would be at a concert, it's there to add something to the main event.

TheWildAndTheYoung
12-14-2013, 06:28 AM
Well I heard that the third movie will be mostly Gandalf's story, about what all happened when he left the company in the first movie and the this one (the parts that weren't shown anyway).Beorn will almost definitely be in the next one, he is in the battle of the five armies if I remember correctly.I loved the scenes with Sauron personally, just because it's rare you get to actually see him, and I am hyped for the battle of the five armies.I also heard that the end of the movie will be right before the Fellowship.

I'd like to see Aragorn in the next movie but I think he'd just have been a child at the time of the Hobbit.

The more I think about it the new one seemed like nothing more than a two and a half hour set-up for the next movie.

I did really like the first song in the credits. Any ideas what it's called?

And adam being the Tolkien fanatic that I am I checked the timelines and Aragorn was exactly ten years old the year that the quest took place.So yea he would be a kid, and would also be under Elrond's care because his father died when he was two.And the song I believe your talking about is I See Fire.

The Lord of the Rings wiki has a picture of a hound Aragorn from what looks like a movie but it doesn't say where it came from exactly. It has me curious.

http://lotr.wikia.com/wiki/Aragorn_II_Elessar

That song was the perfect way to end such an exhausting movie.

So now my next question for you, Smaugs last line "I am fire, I am death", was that from the book?

I've only seen the above so far. I'd probably rank them similarly to how you did, overall. I'm going to see "American Hustle" and / or "Anchorman 2" tonight.

Sooo... I just watched Kate Austen play an elf.

I hadn't a clue going in. That surprise easily makes up for all the disappointments of 2013.

Did anyone else see Stoker? I just watched it the other night and I didn't think it was film of the year material or anything, but it was interesting. Pretty disturbing too.

I dug Wolf of Wall Street, but I think it's a bit overrated. There were moments of absolute brilliance and the performances were great, I just found it to be way too fucking long and it got really repetitive by the end with DiCaprio and co. blowing drugs and banging hookers every 10-15 minutes.

Just saw Gravity 3D on IMAX. I've hated every single 3D movie I've ever seen... until this one.

Gravity: best film of 2013.

The last scene was as emotional as an Agalloch album. Unreal.

^ I've said it before in this thread: I loved that movie. I'm not sure if it was my favorite of 2013, but it was certainly up there amongst my favorites. The title was easily a double entendre in that the sense of dread and other emotions were palpable throughout the course of the story. Great stuff. :fist:

It's one of the best movies I've ever seen, without a doubt. My mom drove me an hour and a half to a theater today so I could see it because she knew how much I would like it. Because I couldn't see it when it originally came out.

I walked out of the theater trying to hold it together. That song at the end was a monster.

In other news, I saw Gravity today.

...

I predict it will rake in technical rewards like candy come Oscar time.
Nailed that one.

EDIT:

Best Cinematography (Emmanuel Lubezki)
Best Directing (Alfonso Cuarón)
Best Film Editing (Alfonso Cuarón, Mark Sanger)
Best Original Score (Steven Price)
Best Sound Editing (Glenn Freemantle)
Best Sound Mixing (Skip Lievsay, Niv Adiri, Christopher Benstead, Chris Munro)
Best Visual Effects (Tim Webber, Chris Lawrence, Dave Shirk, Neil Corbould)

Congrats also to Jared and Matthew - Dallas Buyers Club was an incredible film, and both of their performances were excellent.

Lastly, congrats to Spike Jonze for winning Best Original Sceenplay for Her - another incredible film.

Saw "Jack Reacher" over the weekend. It was much better than I expected. I've never been a huge Cruise fan, but he did a very good job in this film. It might be one of my favorite performances of his, really. Reacher is one badass character - mentally as well as physically. I also liked how they used relatively unknown actors for this, as well as making the fight scenes more realistic by not using the typically fake-sounding foley effects and wire-fighting moves and such. The violence seemed highly authentic.

I hear they're making a sequel. I might actually try to go to the theater to see it.

Yeah, pretty much this. I don't like Tom Cruise at all, so I usually go into any of his movies with the lowest of expectations. "Jack Reacher" turned out pretty alright though.

Disagree on Collateral. Cruise was the reason that movie rocked. He was decent in lots of others, such as Oblivion, Minority Report, Eyes Wide Shut, Vanilla Sky, Magnolia...

No fucking way did I buy him as The Last Samurai, though.

On the other hand, I thought his cameo in Tropic Thunder was outstanding. :rocker: :D

Primer and Moon, watch them! Great movies with hard sci-fi roots, everything has it's plausibility rooted in actual science.

Minority report is great, though.

Hmm I'm not with the consensus on Jack Reacher, I thought it was one of the dumbest action movies I've ever seen. Cruise and a couple of half-decent fight scenes was pretty much the only reason it wasn't a complete disaster.

I still think his cameo in Tropic Thunder is his best moment on-screen.

I was about to say Vanilla Sky sucked, but then realized I was confusing it with October Sky.

I guess I could also add Mission Impossible 4 to the list of great films that Tom Cruise just happens to be in.

So wow. Late to the party, just rented A Wolf On Wall Street. Wow, 35 mins in and I was absolutely sucked in. I don't remember the last time I was so sucked into a movie. I need to buy this, I hope eventually the original 4 hour version sees the light of day.
