Scream 4 is ok, easily the worst one but not the worst film i've ever seen to be fair. as for the Brian Wilson film, my brother works at a theatre, i forget what the position he holds is called? anyways, he told me on the 5th when me & him went and saw it at his theatre that it was being released to only 500 theatres i assumed he meant that counts either other countries or just the US i didn't think to ask? anyways he also said that if it did well more would get it. but i honestly have no idea how well it did cause i haven't talked to him since. i dunno if he'd know or not but

it didn't get to the top 10 that weekend for opening movies. so i'm guessing it did ok.

Where The Dead Go To Die

Literaly one of the most disturbing and amazing animated movies I have ever seen. This movie is imo the visualisation of Hell itself. Highly recommended.

My family watched Jupiter Ascending recently and it looked rather interesting at first. However, I caught onto a couple of boring cliches at the beginning and quickly gained a vivid sense of how it was going to progress and end. The CGI bits looked nice but that's about it. Nothing remarkable. Jupiter Ascending is just a paycheck film with a slightly different coat of paint.

I went and saw Jurassic World Last week and loved it! but Brad is right the film has plenty of flaws he's right. i also was thinking the same thing when that aid got killed and than the heavy gets a lesser death what the fuck? and that last line with the love interests was a real bad fucking line.

cause it sounded too much like she was settling for him than she really loved him or however ya want to put it when they put the leads together at the end of a film. anyways, but i also went in with really low expectations as well. i don't get out much or see movies in the theatre that much.

i got lucky enough to go out during my vacation last week. so when i was asked if i wanted to go? why not ya know? now i just have to see the other sequels. he he, i do agree though on them needing a Sam Neil or a Jeff Goldblum, also Brad in case you are wondering if IMDB trivia is right
his picture was on the cover of some book that was in a couple scenes i missed it too. i guess Bryce Dallas Howard same place source if the trivia is to be believed she took classes on how to run in high heels hence why she never fell on her ass or broke her ankle while wearing them.

course what would have made much more sense is they just at some point in the film had her switch shoes but than what the hell do i know ya know?

I've seen a bunch of movies so I'm gonna make it short:

Life Eternal
An Austrian crime flick with typical Austrian, dark humour about a poor private detective trying to deal with some tough stuff going around him, especially the question how he got a shot to his head and who did it. It's been quite successful in the theaters around me and it was indeed something different to watch there. And I dig the Austrian humour and culture.

Love & Mercy
As I wrote here I wanted to see this movie and finally it's behind me.
I'm not a Beach Boys fan or expert (however, I like their music) but I still enjoyed the movie, especially all the scenes playing in the 1960s when the Beach Boys were active and successful in the business. Paul Dano was wonderful as Brian Wilson while I had some problems connecting the "older Wilson" John Cusack with the same role.

No Holds Barred
A 1980's wrestling action movie that was aired on TV in a series of movies called "Die schlechtesten Filme aller Zeiten" ("The worst movies of all time"). But to be honest, it's not that bad. Yes, it's silly as hell and you can only laugh at Hulk Hogan but that's the whole joy! Everything is silly: himself, the villains, the wrestling shown here, the love story, the dialogues...yeah Smile

Battle of Los Angeles (also part of that "worst movies" series)
I'm gonna make it very short here: This movies is so bad, boring and confusing that I don't wanna write anything about it.

Victoria
A current German movie in which there is no single cut for 140 minutes. And it's not like "Birdman" where they used maybe two or three scenes to trick, in "Victoria" there is NO cut. It's about a young Spanish woman meeting four guys in Berlin but as soon as they become friends she's dragged into a crime plot when one of the guys passes out after drinking too much. Quite impressing, suspenseful and well done.

Men & Chicken
A Danish black comedy about two brothers learning that their father is not their biological father. The two travel to a Danish island to meet their father and also three half-brothers but their not welcomed friendly. And from there one dark family secret after another is to be discovered. Not kneeslapping funny (the gags are often as rude as the redneck brothers) but still enjoyable and suspenseful when it comes to the family secrets. And the actors are great.

Bare Naked in Upper Bavaria (also part of that "worst movies" series)
A movie from 1969 that looks like a soft porn at first but almost never ever keeps what the title promises. It also wasn't that funny. But at least this movie made me home sick some more and gave me a few nice nostalgic scenes.

Xanadu (also part of that "worst movies" series)
Why wasn't that in Brad's "Musical March (in September)" review series, next to "The Apple" or "Can't stop the Music"??
This is a perfect example of a movie that is exactly as bad as many say, no matter how promising the trailers or posters look.
Everything in it is as boring as hell: The plot, the characters and actors, the costumes, the dance and music numbers, the settings...even that short animated scene in the middle was absolutely pointless and more like a tiny highlight that reminded me of "Sword in the Stone" too much.
And the songs? Way too forgettable and mediocre and the lyrics often don't match with the current situation.

Planes
It's on Netflix, two of my favourite comedians have cameos in it and Jake was angry about it, so...
To be very honest: It's not so bad that I'd be angry or that I'd hang myself. I've really seen much worse animated movies that bothered me more. It HAS two or three nice scenes and a pretty cool credits sequence. Also yes, the two cameos.
But everything else is way too generic and done over and over again. The plot is the typical "small outsider wins big competition" schtick that offers anything you would automatically expect. The message is pretty much hypocritical ("you can win any challenge no matter what/who you are and where you're from") when you see how our hero gets a lots of upgrades to win the battle and how he starts to cheats just like his evil archrival. It bothers me since this movie is clearly aimed on younger (male) children.
So: not painfully bad but still bad and unnecessary.
BTW: I haven't seen the "Cars" movies so far but that didn't seem to be a disadvantage.

I'm pretty sure Brad is an unironic fan of 'Xanadu', whereas he's gone on record as actively hating 'The Apple' and 'Can't Stop the Music'. Of course, he's featured many films he loves on the Snob, so I'd expect to see a 'Xanadu' review sometime in the near future.

He isn't the only one.  I'm on Brad's side on this one.



And to the second thing. In my opinion if you can't also laugh at and make fun of the things you like, than you take yourself way too seriously. Which is one of the reasons I admire Brad's work.

i've actually never seen Xanadu so i can't say if it's good or bad. i guess that one is just depends on how your taste in music is

I think what got under a lot of people's skin with Xanadu was the unabashed "this is the '80s dialog", when it still feels a little quantum locked in the '70s (a bit like can't stop the music).  Most people when they bring it up don't have many bad things to say about the music.  Electric Light Orchestra, Olivia Newton John and Gene Kelly usually don't incite much vitriol in people.

you may be right, i have yet to see either film to be fair. yes can't stop the music looks like a piece of fucking shit. but there's no doubt worse films than that one, or Xanadu as well. i gotta admit that Gene Kelly even being in that film is such a strange bit of casting for a film like that.

In my opinion - and I'm sorry if I offend anyone now - I dislike "Xanadu" for its blandness. It looks like a musical equipped with little money (that seems to be mostly thrown at ONJ) but unfortunately also with little effort.
I have told you the most important things why I don't really like this one. But aside from that, the movie doesn't even give me a nice nostalgic feeling during the running time. That would have saved a lot.

But now, my watched movies of the last four weeks or so:

Mega Python vs. Gatoroid
Finally a cheap monster movie that was fun. Mainly because I didn't have to wait an hour to see the beasts and they were just amusing (the snake swallowing a whole running train for example). The "actors" and the story all were stupid and bad but unintentionally funny. That's worth a watch.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day
What can I say? Not much. Just near to perfect. I see a movie is wonderful when I can watch it amazed and entertained hrough the whole long running time. To me this sequel is better than the first Terminator movie.

Supersonic Man
A re-watch. Honestly, not much to say about. A Spanish, pseudo-American superhero production, sometimes funny, but mostly rather boring.

Pixels
I don't think it's a catastrophe of a movie and I liked the action and battle sequences. But everything else felt forced, unfunny or way too disconnected from the actual plot. I'm not a Sandler fan or a fan of his humour. So I had to get through a lot of his "comedy" before seeing the actual story. But to be fair, a few jokes were okay. And then I watched Brad's and Sarah's "Midnight Screening" about it and saw we share about the same opinion. Could have been a good movie done by other people maybe.

The Boxtrolls
The LAIKA movie I had to watch after the great "Coraline" and also great "ParaNorman". To be honest, those two are better. But "Boxtrolls" is still worth watching, I often was marveled about what this movie dares to show. It looks good and original enough, the animation is also good, the characters are very interesting. Sometimes the story felt half-baked to me but it also gave me a few surprises and good scenes.

Almighty Thor
The mockbuster, not the original.
Bad, boring but unintentionally funny. I'd be okay if Loki would conquer my world since this Thor seems to be totally unaware and brainless.

Double Trouble
About one year I laughed my ass of because of another movie with these bodybuilding twins ("The Barbarians" ), now I saw "Double Trouble". Okay, not that funny. The story was a mess. But at least there were some amusing scenes, mostly done by the twins.

No need to apologize. If you didn't like it you didn't like it. In the immortal words of the dude "That's just like, your opinion man"

My family watched The Road recently.

It was dissapointing. I was expecting a lot more from it than what it actually delivered. The movie comes off as a slice of life in an apocolyptic world where people forgot that only they could prevent forest fires. I suppose it's because I'm comming from such an extreme angle that the "dark" subject matter didn't phase me at all in this film because nothing happened aside from people walking, complaining, and eating.

LOVE & MERCY - I really liked how this focused on two major events (recording "Pet Sounds" and Melinda trying to get Brian away from the "doctor") instead of doing a paint-by-numbers biopic. Strong cast too; I thought Paul Dano and Elizabeth Banks in particular were fantastic. 8.5/10

KILL BABY KILL - A child's ghost is leading villagers to grisly deaths in this gothic. Not my favorite from director Mario Bava but has some pretty creepy moments. 6/10

BLOOD AND BLACK LACE - Another Bava, this time a giallo; a model gets murdered and it turns out she had dirt on pretty much everyone she worked with. But which one is killing to keep his/her secret safe? This is one of the most gorgeously shot movies I've ever seen. I still prefer BLACK SUNDAY but this is definitely essential viewing. 8.5/10

INSIDE OUT - Not much to say here; it's another winner from Pixar. Loved the whole world-building concept of memories. I thought Anger would be my favorite emotion based on the trailers but I'm kind of partial to Disgust now. 9/10

50 SHADES OF GREY - Frumpy dumbass Ana and rich control freak Christian begin an abusive relationship under the guise of Dom/Sub play. I knew this would be bad because the books were godawful, but it's not bad in a way that's at all interesting. The leads have zero chemistry, the dialogue is hopelessly unrealistic, and the direction glossy and unaffected. Just a big old MEH/10

SLOW WEST - A teenage boy and his reluctant guide try to find the boy's sort-of girlfriend and stay ahead of a group of vicious bounty hunters, who are also after the girl and her father. This is more fairy tale than western really, a quest story complete with monsters & thieves, prophetic dreams and a "haunted" forest. It's a shade pretentious but beautifully shot and acted, with a slightly morbid sense of humor which I appreciated. 7.5/10

UNBROKEN - Based on Lauren Hillebrand's much-loved biography of Louis Zamperini. Louis experiences cultural prejudice as a child, competes in the Olympics, joins the military in WWII and, after his plane crashes on the ocean, gets put in a Japanese POW camp (where a sadistic guard fixates on him). The cast was great and Roger Deakins' cinematography is superb as always, but I was weirdly detached watching it. Maybe there was just too much story to fit into one movie here but I felt like I was watching a series of postcards; I didn't emotionally connect with it at all. 5/10

Antman. It was a stupid movie, but enjoyable. A strange character he is. There were times though that the movie cheated and put him places he shouldn't have been able to go. But, eh, it's an okay film. Much better than the green lantern one.

Trying to watch The Book of Life. It's beautful, but one can't really soak it in because it's so fast paced and blows through scenes like it's on crack.

perhaps it is? that's prolly one of the many reasons Brad hated it. it's nice to look at but that's it, i haven't seen it myself to be honest. anyways.

i watched some of the Original Classic Friday the 13th on blu-ray that i bought a couple weeks back. now i have it on dvd and blu-ray.

I guess it's because it's a family film that makes a ton of money at the box office.
