    "Thanks for proving me right."

    You said every post. I proved you wrong in this very thread.

    "Wait, isn't this what you were a jerk to culturedog about?"

    No it isn’t. I was reminded of another movie I recently watched, and since that applies to this thread, I posted about it. Im not replying to everybodys posts giving my 2 cents. And its fine that he is. I just don’t care to read his posts.

    “If you don't care about his opinion, why should we care about yours?"

    And when did I ever say you should care about my opinion? Oh wait........I didn’t!

    Just do yourself a favor and put me on ignore.

    Actually, I didn't say every post. I said every time I see you post. Subtle difference there, but I'm done arguing with you. Continue your ways and see how many friends you have, on here or in real life.

    And I still proved you wrong in this very thread.

    Anyways, back to the thread.

    Another movie I really enjoyned recently was '10 times or less'

    Its a short quirky movie with Morgan Freeman.....playing an actor getting ready for his next project. It was filmed up the street from where I live.

    LOL thanks for that.

    I watched Shooter this week. I really like that movie, with its nice mix of action and conspiracy. Mark Wahlberg is a good actor to me, though I think most people would probably disagree, haha

    I really hate Kate Mara (as an actress, she's still hot) and Danny Glover (not as hot), but I didn't mind this movie despite those two. I first saw it in theaters so I think that helped. Marky Mark did over-act quite a bit though.

    Shooter is an excellent film. I watched it with my father a couple months ago, and he was Force Recon back in the 70's, so I got to hear some interesting stories that the movie "reminded" him of.
    He laughed at the conspiracy bits. That scares me.

    You seem to chim in on everybodys movie. Id rather just put you on ignore so I can enjoy this thread.

    See you never again.
    Ehfahq~ just wanted to let you know, I would rather you not post in my thread if you're gonna have this kind of attitude. I want this thread to be a discussion thread, not just a thread where everyone lists what they've seen. culturedog's movie reviews and commentary are more than welcome here. Please keep that in mind if you're going to continue to post in this thread. Thank you~

    Now back on topic~

    Oh my bad. Im sorry I had an opinion about somebodys posts. It wont happen again.

    Another movie I watched recently was 'Walk Hard'

    I only watched it because the Deweys little brother lives in my apartment complex. I was suprised how good he was. I didnt really like the movie that much, but it had plenty of funny scenes. The beatles were great.

    I don't think he meant that you couldn't have an opinion. Just that if you have a negative opinion of someone or something, you could voice it more politely and constructively or just keep it to yourself.

    To anybody who has seen it, is Wall-E worth buying on Blu-ray? It looks cool, but I haven't seen it yet.

    From what ive heard Wall-E is a cute little movie. I havent heard that many bad things about it. It did annoy me that he looks alot like Johnny-5(IS ALIVE). But atleast they didnt have a white guy playing an Indian in Wall-E.

    Los locos kick your ass. Los locos kick your face. Los locos kick your balls INTO OUTER SPACE!

    Excuse me while I 'chim' in with more outrageous commentary! :D

    Wall-E blew me away. Like my friend Ehfahq, I was initially turned off by the character's resemblance to Johnny 5, but I got so swept up in the story that I completely forgot about that after a few minutes.

    It's one of Pixar's best films (and I'm pretty well convinced it's their best period), and is one of the best movies of this year.

    I'm definitely going to pick up the Blu-ray. High-Def Digest gave it really high marks, and I can only imagine how great some of the space scenes will look in HD!

    Thanks guys! I'll look into it, or maybe put it on my Christmas list. I get together with my cousins every year and we draw names for our annual Christmas party. We've done it since I was 1, and it's something I really look forward to. Luckily, this falls right into our price range :D

    Also, I would find it hard to believe Wall-E beats out Iron Man for best movie of the year, but I'm a comic book movie junkie, lol

    Damn you! You've got the Best Buy Planet Terror steelbook! I tried like hell to snag it, but it sold out near instantly. I managed to get the Death Proof one, but I really wanted to have 'em both side by side.

    Nice collection!

    Wow..thanks for reminding me! I know for a fact that I have a steelbook version of both Death Proof and Planet Terror, but I don't think they were 3-discs. There were a few DVD's that I bought when DVDAF was "re-designing" back when it was still "www.dvdaficionado.com", not dvdaf.com, and I they didn't do a good job of getting all the versions of movies that came out during that time...I should really go back through these and double check!

    I once tried to make a list of every movie I had ever seen....I got to 900 and decided I would narrow it down to my "Top 25 From Every Year" which I still update on a regular basis...for instance, The 2000's.

    Yes, if you own one and only one BD, I think it should be Wall-E. I, too, had no interest in this movie when it originally came out because all I saw in the trailers was a depressing Earth, one robot and that robot going into space. After seeing the trailers on PSN, the film seemed a lot more appealing, and I pre-ordered it from Amazon and watched it yesterday.

    Best movie I've ever seen.

    Iron Man is really good, too... as far as Blu-ray performance, Wall-E looks and sounds better (but it's animated so it probably has a huge advantage over live film). Get Both! Those would be the first two BD's I would get if I were starting my collection over today.

    thats exactly the reason why i was interested in it.

    Ah... were you disappointed by 'everything else' that appeared in the movie then?

    I'm not that savvy on tech specs other than knowing 1080p is BD HD quality... The BD (and DVD) of Wall-E comes with a 'digital copy' that's in 480p Standard Def that you could watch on your computer.

    i may have been misleading in my emphasis on was. i meant the idea of a desolate planet, single robot, and him going into space were precicely the reasons that i wanted to see it. added to the fact that i havent been let down by Pixar yet. next up, 'UP'.

    Cool. I've got about 15 BDs and 20 HD DVDs (I cashed in on firesales LOL) so I'm not really just starting. Money is tight for me right now though so I want my BD purchases to be worthwhile. Thanks for the input

    Watched get smart last night. Wasn't as good as I had hoped being a fan of both steve carrell and the series. Were some funny moments though. I would give it a 7/10 rating.

    i finally got to see "mister lonely" in a more proper setting last night...

    i had seen an earlier version about a year and a half ago when harmony was previewing it on no-neck blues band's tour and though i've remained friendly with him over the past 11 years or so, he's terrible at keeping in touch so i didn't even know it had been released until it was too late.

    luckily, netflix came to the rescue!

    Watched The Incredible Hulk
    for the most part
    missed few minutes here and there
    action scenes were cool, but overall i preferred Iron Man (only mention this cause people say hulk is as good as iron man)

    not saying hulk is bad or anything, just like tony stark's character more than bruce's

    Someone said "ass-blaster" in my physics class today (the Russian teacher did not know the reference) and I've been itching to watch that again all day.

    Same here - I've got all my stubs going back to '94, though I keep them loose in a huge rice bowl with a pair of chopsticks shoved in. I've been meaning to make digital scans of them all, since they have a tendency to fade quickly.

    Back to the 'last seen' movies, I saw Transporter 3 last night and thought it was much better than the last. Way more in the spirit of the original, with slightly more down to earth action.

    Basically Frank Martin's still trying to remain retired, fishing with his old buddy Inspector Tarconi as often as possible. Unfortunately, his reputation is still running strong, and a paid strongman for a bunch of polluting Americans wishes to hire him for a job. This plot ties in with an EPA bigwig in the Ukraine (Jeroen Krabbe of The Living Daylights!) and his fun-loving daughter who gets kidnapped while partying in Ibiza.

    One cool gimmick about this film is that Frank has a "Battle Royale" style 'sploding body accessory, in this case a bracelet that goes kablooey if he moves too far away from his beloved black Audi. Which keeps the action car-centric, thankfully.

    The only thing that bothered me was that alot of the aerial shots of the car chases were sped up, so they looked cartoonish instead of thrilling. Lots of flashy editing too, which sometimes obscures Cory Yuen's intricately choreographed fight scenes. For those who didn't like the busy nature of Quantum of Solace, you'll hate this. Even static shots of ships in a harbor are constantly spliced, fast-forwarded and tweaked with, as if the editor was bored and needed something to do.

    It looks better than the last film, probably thanks to new director Olivier Megaton (only Luc Besson can dig up guys with names like this!). Mr. Megaton and his DP Giovanni Fiore Coltellacci make great usage of locations such as Marseilles, Budapest and the beautiful vistas near Stuttgart.

    The plot is relatively thin, the characters are cardboard cutouts with dense accents (even the Americans sound fake, kinda like when English characters would show up in Hong Kong movies) and the editing is just way too nutty. But, hey - it's Frank Martin kicking ass, grabbing ass and driving fast. What more do you want?

    How do you see all these early screenings? I can't wait for Transporter 3~

    Last night I saw the last hour of Die Hard. I've seen it before of course but I just realized ... isn't the ending kind of silly?
    Highlight for spoiler~

    When that guy who was left hanging for like an hour suddenly appears with his gun. He should have been dead, and then he somehow got passed all the cops and was able to end up almost right in front of McClain. It's like all they wanted was for that cop to shoot someone before the movie ended
