Since the 'Rate the song above you' game is kinda fun, I thought I might challenge some movie fans with a similar game. I'll post a trailer for the film and if you have seen the film, please rate it in reply while posting another trailer for a film for the next person to rate. If you had played the song version, this should be easy for you!

The first trailer I want to post is for a horror comedy classic from the 1980s!

Fright Night 9/10

Excellent film with a perfect blend of horror, humor, and heart.

Highlander

6/10

kinda lame in some spots, goofy plot, (seriously chopping off their heads is their kyrponite), but still not near as bad as some other action fantasy movies out there (like the squeals lol) not a total failure but nothing special in my oppinion typical 80's action.



now to a fucking classic

9/10 Evil Dead II is a fucking awesome movie. It has some of the funniest and just most badass things I've ever seen on screen.





Now this is a movie I always really liked but nobody else ever seemed to, so I'm curious to see what people think...

American Psycho

And yeah, I know this isn't a real trailer but I couldn't find anything, so this is good enough...

8/10. I really love the humour in the movie, and Bale is both hilarious and disturbing. There's something in it that bores me a bit though. Maybe it was a little too heavy on the satire.

So, um.... how about Dune?

Dune = 7/10

Pros-
David Lynch sci-fi cult classic.
Ahead of it's time, great special effects, great music.
Sting.
Dude squirting puss out of his face herpes. An interesting futuristic drug trade related plot. Giant sand worms.
Character actors. (Red Sonja Asian boy fat sidekick, Charlotte's husband from Sex and the City, Michael Bolton?)

Con-
Little long, slow, and might not catch your attention the first time you watch it.
One of those where you always hear to read the book.

"LONG LIVE THE FIGHTERS!!!"

10/10 for The Fly! Romantic and bloody which works together flawlessly!

Now how about this!

Action, romance, adventure, mystery... does any film truly have more to offer?

10/10 Yesterday, today, and forever.




Dirty Harry

7/10 Not a bad movie, but I always thought it was really overrated. I honestly thought it was a little bit forgettable. Maybe I just need to give another watch.

How about Matchstick Men?

(By the way, can someone tell me how to embed videos?)

Highlander is not for everyone, that I can understand. But Dirty Harry doesn't earn a 10/10? Sorry, but that is one of the greatest cop thrillers ever made. Heck, I could even understand a 9/10, but not a 7/10.

I never saw Matchstick Men, so the next person will have to review it. As far as embedding video, there are a bunch of tabs above the message window as you type. One of them (looks like a film strip) is a youtube button. Just click that, then enter the youtube code (click the "share" button") located under every youtube video to get the code.

It's all subjective at the end of the day dude, some might think it great, others not so much.

Dirty Harry may be exciting, gritty fun, but it's got enough flaws to warrant a 7 or 8 score. For instance, I thought that the editing in that movie is near awful, especially in the end chase. It took me out of the movie a bit.

Well obviously it's subjective. All art is. I just found it funny as I find most of this generations taste in films to be pretty much at the bottom of an unflushed toilet. Smile

For the record, I was being facetious. I'm not being serious at all. I'm on a site that thinks Pierre Kirby films are the greatest. I better not take things too serious.

Eh, even the people with the most agreeable opinions have a few unpopular ones, too. For instance, I like Showgirls.

Actually, I believe I am to blame for that. Sorry, I did not mean for this to become a discussion.

The last movie up for review was Matchstick Men. The OP didn't know how to post the trailer, so here it is:




Let's start again shall we.

8/10
In my opinion the best movie Nic Cage did. Great acting and I love scam movies (and heist movies).

And gets 5 cool points for this scene alone



Next movie: The Town

7.5/10
The Town was a very good film, really liked it, but it was still cliche as all hell gets out.

Next film:

DUNE (1984)

Dune again? Well, that'll be a 9/10 from me. Great soundtrack, great sets and great visuals. I love it so much that it could deserve a 10, but there are so many flaws I can't overlook.

How about Lost Highway?

Sorry, didn't see the trailer embedded before so I assumed it hadn't been done yet.
But I suppose thats why you read forums, not just look. *facepalm*
