    Just did a Gremlins/Gremlins 2 double feature. I fucking love these movies. The second might be the best puppet/physical effects movie ever made. Rick Baker did work in that movie that blows away a lot of things that even Henson did, and it's a pretty under appreciated film except for us wackos.

    Gremlins 2 is one of the greatest sequels ever filmed.



    Noah is a horrendous piece of shit. Read a fucking bible or redbox it.

    I can't believe the guys behind You, Me & Dupree directed on of the best American action movies I've seen in decades. The Winter Soldier is simply awesome.

    Yep, it really is one of the greatest action films ever made, superhero or otherwise.

    Under the Skin is an absolute fucking masterpiece. Good god. It'll take a hell of a lot for it to not end up being the best film of 2014.

    Boring, but fun? I don't know. I wasn't bored for one second during the movie. Perhaps I'm exaggerating a bit calling it the best American action movie I've seen in decades, but it's certainly one of the best to come along in years and as pure action goes maybe one of the best ever. Bare in mind I was a pretty big fan of Olympus Has Fallen. Winter Soldier is much better than that one though and close to the top of all the Marvel movies that have come out so far. For me anyways.

    Olympus Has Fallen was shockingly entertaining. KungFuJoe, you have a different level of appreciation for action and fighting movies than the general moviegoer - one that i share as well. I definitely use a completely different criteria for criticism when I watch action movies.

    Yes. I definitely use a different criteria for criticism when it comes to action movies as well. For the most part the action has to be more coherent than the story for me. Story takes a back seat to the action. Of course, if there's a great script and story than it's even better, but more important than that even are the characters. You need to have strong heroes, ones that you can identify with and root for, and villains.

    Edit: That's the basic simple way of explaining it for me. Will I come on here and claim Ninja 2: Shadow of a Tear or Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning as being among the best American action films ever made. No. But are they enjoyable action films? Sure.

    I believe that was White House Down, which I haven't seen, with Chaning Tatum and Jamie Fox. Olympus Has Fallen is with Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman, Aaron Ekhart and Melissa Leo (who is quite remarkable in it). Very easy to confuse the two though.

    Your criteria for action films is spot-on; my only objection is when you apply it to David O. Russell movies.

    hahaha fair enough. I honestly am not sure how to explain my David O. Russell fanboydom. I'm not a fan of The Fighter, aside from a couple of the performances. American Hustle I found thoroughly engaging (mainly due to Bale and Adams) and fun. Silver Linings Playbook is about as great a Hollywood romantic comedy as I can ask for. Huckabees and Flirting with Disaster are hilarious to me. Two of my all time favorite comedies. And Three Kings is fantastic, though it's been a long time since I watched it and feel I should re-visit it soon.


    And on another note, I'm stoked for Godzila too.

    I also love action films and David O. Russell, but my opinions on Hustle and The Fighter are exactly opposite yours - I found The Fighter completely engaging from start to finish (literally from the opening scene) and I barely put up with Hustle, but loved some of the performances. Go figure.

    Flirting With Disaster is underrated. And Silver Linings was the perfect date flick, especially if you have a preference for crazy chicks who like to dance.

    I still believe that the first decade of his career was one big crescendo, each film an improvement on the last and the latter two (Kings and Huckabees) each being among the top films of their respective decades. But The Fighter was mediocre, and the last two were unrepentant dogshit.

    And yes, while Monsters was nothing more than Good For Its Budget in my eyes, I am also excited for Godzilla. The first trailer sold me to the degree that I've ignored all subsequent marketing.

    It would take a lot of convincing to get me to believe there was a better comedy in the 1990s than Flirting with Disaster. Groundhog Day, maybe? Election?

    Election maybe. Rushmore. Dazed and Confused? The Big Lebowski.

    And for pure laughs.. There's Something About Mary was truly funny. And I say all this film snobbily when I've probably watched "Tommy Boy" as much as any of these films, even Lebowski.

    I thought of this too when thinking of best comedies from the 90s.

    I guess South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut deserves mention as well.

While I liked the acting and the overall story I just didn't really like how nothing happens in the movie. I understand it was just a week in his life but I was hoping for something of significance to happen that either makes him better or worse off, not just ending the movie the way it started. It was still worth watching as I did quite enjoy it and was entertaining enough (which I know is contradicting what I previously said) but I really do need to watch it again in when it can be rented to really decide how I feel about it.
    Just watched Inside Llewyn Davis...did not like it.

    There were parts I liked (like his audition for Bud Grossman, and Grossman's response to it)...but overall, the music just couldn't make up for what the rest of the film was lacking, IMO.

    I loved it. But it's definitely an atmospheric film, and it loses some steam as it repeats itself.

    It's the kind of movie that if it wasn't Coen Bros, I'd be like "this director kicks ass, I can't wait to see what they do next." And the guy who played Llewyn just absolutely crushed it. He was amazing, and totally made the movie for me.
