Re: Forum reboot in progress

For your consideration: a color scheme that isn't fucking beige.

That'd be great thanks.

Re: Dear Tim Burton: you suck and I hate you.

Here we go again. 9bBxuErYZ1Y I won't lie, I'm going to end up watching this one, because it's stop-motion and it's Frankenstein and there's dogs, which are like three of my favorite things. But the original short film it's based on was already the perfect length for the story it was telling, and I ...

Best Movies of 2011

Okay, okay, okay, we're here. So after watching everything even halfway relevant this year, I've come to two conclusions: 1) This year has been damn sweet to horror. Which is a nice change of pace because, let's face it, if you want anything with any level of intelligence or quality to it, with a ha...

Care to be more elaborate? Because pretty much no.

I wouldn't really mention it, except for that I was looking up information on it and the rumor is that Criterion has acquired the film to their library and is going to announce a dvd ...

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a112/Lyarnos/bully.jpg Bully (2001) Thought I'd just go further and make it a Larry Clark double-header tonight. Everybody in this movie is stupid and horrible and the voyeurism was disturbing, but... aw fuck it, that shit was all messed up. Fascinating though. Som...

I'm gonna try to summarize these up in one sentence each: http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a112/Lyarnos/hugo.jpg Hugo (2011) Celebrates the joy of cinema by way of being a big, shiny, bluorangey piece of soulless, if well-intended, trifle whose only inspired visuals were lifted from films that did ...

Re: Worst Movies of 2011

Fetish objects is a good way of putting it. I see nothing wrong with making a moving about exploitation, whether it be in a good or bad light. I am mature enough to realize that not everyone has the same opinions as me so not everything will be my cup of tea. So if someone wants to make a movie abo...

Re: Worst Movies of 2011

Daybreakers was horribly disappointing. I'd actually forgotten about it. My girlfriend and I liked Sucker Punch, admitting to one another we had no idea what he was going for, but we found it enjoyable to eat popcorn at. I didn't even get that out of it, sadly. I just felt like I was watching somebo...

Re: Worst Movies of 2011

Another link supporting the "Zack Snyder is just kind of a moron" arguement: When director Zack Snyder directed comic book adaptations of 300 and Watchmen, comic book movie fans already had a pretty good idea of what was in store for them. However, his latest movie, Sucker Punch, though visually st...

Re: Worst Movies of 2011

I think Snyder is in the mindset that many people I have come across are. The mindset that skimpy clothing IS empowering. That being a stripper IS empowering. While I can't fully disagree with that since I believe women should make their own choices on those sorts of things, what I DO disagree with...

Re: Worst Movies of 2011

Oh, and on the old wise man too: so... Baby Doll is tormented by her father, then the male orderly at the hospital. Even in her weird whore fantasy she's forced to dance for paying men's enjoyment. Being literally imprisoned, the only way that she can find freedom is to look further inward to her ow...

Re: Worst Movies of 2011

To be honest, I sort of slingshot back and forth between looking forward to the movie, because I wanted to see if Snyder was actually capable of writing something himself, and dreading it because of how dry the trailers came off and the word of mouth. So I went in anticipating something awful, but f...

Worst Movies of 2011

I always enjoy making the end of the year lists. There's really no purpose to mine at this point (mine are going on this site, and this site only this year, meaning that roughly five people will even glance at it), but there's something satisfyingly conclusive about it, a way to take one final taste...
