Was weeks ago, but it was The Milagro Beanfield War. Wasn't the first time. Doubt it was the last.

I have to change my answer now.

Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star



And ya know what? I think I liked it. :D

It's goofy, but it's not a terrible movie. Kevin Nealon, Don Johnson, Christina, Ricci, Mario...good stuff right there.

LOL! CC loves me so much, she let me pick the movie one night. :lol:

Plus, I'm already down with lots of the stuff she's into, and if this schmoopiness continues to grow and we end up combining our DVD collections, there'll be more than one duplicate documentary we'll have to figure out what to do with.

And since you brought it up, have I mentioned how much I adore that woman? <3

That doesn't really work for me. Too many years of too many unprotected shows have done a bit of a number on my ability to pick up on sounds in the higher end, so I gotta keep the volume up.

Therein lies the, um, rub.

Prometheus. Gorgeous film that serves well as an Alien prequel though it does seem to push too much into one 2 hour film.

I thought Unbreakable was horrid. Slow and boring.

I liked the one with Mel Gibson and the Aliens, but it had moments of suck.

That's all I have to say about M. Night Shamalamadingdong.

Right. Signs. I liked the idea of unbreakable but didn't like certain things. The slow, plodding pace of the movie. Certain scenes that I felt were just too unbelievable, like the kid holding a gun on his dad to prove he's invincible. I don't think any kid would do that, no matter what they believe. The whole twist, which I thought was lame.

So yeah, the crap wound up making a bigger pile than the good, for me.

I hear ya...but I like Bruce Willis (I actually think he's a good actor :eek1: and he helped with the slow parts and I just had the mindset that this was a comic book (not graphic novel) and took the absurdities in stride.

I like my comic books to make internal sense. This was presented as the real world, without superheroes. So because SJ's character is born with a disease that makes him frail, someone else somewhere was born invincible? And because of this, it makes sense for SJ to kill hundreds of people to find him, because once he finds him, he can...what? Be defeated by him? Can someone explain WHY SJ would act the way he did that makes sense?

Alsoa, when you say it happend to Superman above, what do you mean? I don't think Superman's kid ever held a gun on him...

I was referring to the alleged incident involving George Reeves:

"Reeves often spoke to groups of children to help promote the Superman TV series. As the story goes, once when he appeared to speak at a department store wearing the Superman costume, a boy who had taken his father's gun almost shot Reeves. The boy explained that he wanted to watch the bullets bounce off Superman. Luckily, the situation was apparently averted, and thereafter Reeves continued to speak to groups of children, only without the Superman costume. This is believed to have been a story made up by Reeves, so that he wouldn't have to wear the costume at public appearances. In costume, children would often kick him and throw rocks at him to test his Superman abilities."

there are real life horror stories involving guns and kids and "accidental" shootings. so I don't think the son pointing a gun at his dad to be unrealistic

but it's still ok to not like the movie :wink:

Hey, I'm just talking about my perceptions here. There are other, non-lethal ways of testing if your dad is a superhero without shooting him. I would think any kid would start there. That whole scene just smacked of inserted, unrealistic drama.

Not as believable to me, no. I think I may have had less of an issue with it if the movie had presented itself in a comic-book like universe to begin with; make some mention of the fact that superheroes exist.

I will say I enjoyed Bruce's acting in this one, but I suspectif The Sixth Sense hadn't come out and been a smash hit, this movie would not have seen the light of day.

Diddy, I grew up reading a LOT of early 60's comics. What was depicted in Unbreakable could have absolutely been a comic hero's secret origin back in the day. The logic of there being someone super strong because someone is super weak...I can almost see that as something Stan Lee would write.

Even the scene w/the kid w/the gun (which I agree doesn't come off as believable at all) would have been something you'd have seen back then. The movie is definitely paying its homage to the Silver Age of comics...perhaps even a little bit to the Golden Age.

I just went and read the plot summary for The Happening. I almost can't believe it. Did Shamalamadingdong actually make a movie about plants deciding to emit a toxin that makes humans commit suicide because we're destroying the earth? And then they (the plants) decided to just...stop...and that's the movie?

Please tell me there's more to it than that...
