    I remember being pretty disappointed with this movie. Cruises best film is by far mission impossible, with second place being a tie between tropic thunder and top gun.
    I loved Valkyrie and Top Gun. Wasn't a fan of Mission Impossible, although I can appreciate it being one of his best. Also, I don't even consider Tropic Thunder as being 'one of his films.'

    It could be, but I probably just assumed it was Flight of the Valkyrie cuz of the song and all that. What disappointed you about it? I think overall it was a really good movie.

    Top Gun was awesome, I haven't seen Mission Impossible since I was like 7 so I don't remember it tbh. Tropic Thunder luhlz. Cocktail was a joke obv.

    I know tropic thunder wasnt a cruise movie really... and thats why I say its not the number one, but it gets the number two slot cuz he was so awesome in it and I think its the ONLY time Ive seen him not play tom cruise in a movie.

    And dranger, it has nothing to do with the song, the actual codename for the mission was valkyrie.. like.. you know.. this really happened. Speaking of which, I think thats where a lot of my discontent with this movie comes from. I already thoroughly knew the story, so to me the movie was just a bunch of fluff piled on a story I already knew. I woudlnt say the movie was terrible, I just wouldnt ever watch it again or think to recommend it.

    Yea, I know the op was named Valkyrie lol, I don't know why I assumed it had anything to do with the song. As you stated before, I'm a pretty big tard on occasion.

    Has anyone else gone to see Alice in Wonderland yet? Anyone like it?
  6. #156
    Im going to see it tonight in glorious 3d while my brain is enhanced.
  7. #157
    ya, youre an idiot dranger. Alice was probably the best "kids" movie Ive seen. Tim burton is the man..

    Alice in Wonderland was not that good. Even in 3d!
  9. #159
    I almost wonder if I would have liked it better in 2d. It was awesome in IMAX on that huge screen. But I remember someone saying that the movie was not filmed in 3d, but made to work in 3d post production because of avatars success. I could be wrong but I feel like I could tell the difference.. close up fast moving scenes were REALLY hard on the eyes. I think I will be avoiding "3D" movies that were not actually filmed in 3D from now on, but with that being said I still thought the movie was awesome.

    I still think it was Snoresville boost. It just wasn't interesting in the least, at least not what I was expecting. :/ I guess I expected more from it.

    Elitism frowns upon youse guys and ur StonerVision

    Definitely can make for a unique and entertaining experience, but not objectively.

    I mean c'mon, I was baked out of my mind, went and saw Charlie's Angels II, and thought it was not terrible. Blasphemy

    That was so gay. I went to a double feature - the old Bad Lieutenant and the new one half a year ago, but it start at 11pm, and I had been up since 6 or so, and I decided to drive home after the first one because I was just way too tired.
    :'(
    Now the next chance I get to see it in the theater is ten years from now at a Werner Herzog special or sumthin.

    Out of all the movies I've seen lately I would have to say check out Edge Of Darkness. That was a pretty sweet movie.

    It's David Lynch for the poor. I thought it was bad, but I didn't hate it.

    You've probably seen it, but you might like Memento... obviously everything by David Lynch except Dune and the more recent ones. And just maybe Godards Week-End, and maybe Alphaville. - I don't think it's a good movie, but I like his courage.

    About to watch Being John Malkovich, but dont have any weed on me.. and this seems like the perfect stoner movie.. Is it worth the watch without being stoned?
  20. #170
    Speaking of David Lynch, I'm not a big fan because I tend to not like his content, but he is indeed fantastically skilled. His film, Straight Story, however, was awesome, and it was a curious deviation from his normal style

    I watched The Sting again the other day.

    Quality film. Bit of poker (stud) in there aswell.

    Don't make them like that anymore.

    Being John Malkovich is one of my favorites.

    Also, I just saw Donnie Darko for the first time last week and didn't think it was that bad.

    Another one I really like lately is Synecdoche, NY with Phillip Seymour Hoffman (awesome actor btw)

    Watched Bad Lieutenant - wouldn't have noticed that it's a Herzog movie until about halfway through. I did not care much for his other attempts at Hollywood like Rescue Dawn and Invincible, but this one really blew me away. Absolutely worth watching. So is the original btw.

    Office Space: I can't believe I've never even heard of it. It's one of the funniest things I've ever seen. - And I mean Airplane! - funny.

    Not a movie, but because I'm watching right now, and I think it's better than the movies:
    Futurama season 5, episode 9: The Sting.
    Easily my favorite episode of the entire series.

    Im opedipus bitch, the original balla.
    Well it's a tv show, but I just watched all 4 seasons of Prison Break.. First season is definitely pretty good imo. Second-Third season are meh.. By the Fourth, it gets kinda old having the same shit happen. Either way, it wasted some time, so whatever.

    No Spenda's right. This is the *** OFFICIAL Movies & Movie Recommendations Thread *** and we have to respect that. Why have all these ***OFFICIAL*** threads if we are just going to post random comments? I'm thinking a strike or temp ban could be a possibility.

    True. I know it's blasphemy, but I would have preferred them to cancel the Simpsons and keep Futurama on the air.
    I was going to recommend some 70's Anthony Hopkins film, but to piss off jyms:

    Duckman Season 3, Episode 6: A room with a Bellevue

    Easily one of the best episodes in the series. Along with Noir Gang, America the Beautiful and About Face
    You can watch them on youtube. Until recently it hasn't even been out on DVD. Apparently it completely bombed. It's a shame because it was brilliant.

    So I am staring at 3 movies. The Bad Lieutenant, From Paris with love and Defendor. My run bad for picking movies when I have a choice continues with Defendor. Had some not so high but semi decent hopes for this movie. Not so much luck.

    Watched Crazy Heart last night though and enjoyed it.

    Yeah I was disappointed with Defendor too. I love Harrelson and the preview looked good, but the move was just ok at best.

    when I first saw the preview I was really excited.. but then I saw it again and.. idk.. I just kinda knew it would be a let down, so I practiced avoidance.

    IMDB rating system

    For some reason people don't seem to wanna think that an external rating system is reliable, but it really is. Before I started using the system as a tool to pick movies, I watched a ton of garbage. But after using the system, the bad movies became few and far between. The system is, after all, pretty much a large sampling of peer-review from avid film fans

    Seriously, there's a reason that some movies get high ratings like 8.0 and other movies get low ones like 6.5. I guarantee that if you did an experiment and watched fifty 8.0+ rated films then fifty 6.0-7.0 rated films you would be substantially more pleased with the former category, and it's really not even close.

    There are nuances involved with how the system works, but generally, if you avoid watching all films rated below 7.5, you'll be watching so many good films that you'll begin to get sick of the quality and just wanna watch something stupid to keep from feeling like a snob or something

    For years, Shawshank Redemption and The Godfather were fighting back and forth for the #1 spot. Shawshank has pretty much sealed it by now

    And slap yourself in the face for not watching Godfather 1&2. Two of the best

    Return of the Living Dead.

    Trashy 80's horror, but very entertaining imo.

    Zombiland still isn't in theaters over here I fear it might go the straight to dvd route like Slither did.

    The problem with IMDB is that the ratings are not measuring the objective "goodness" of a film but rather their mainstream popularity. While you are probably getting more better than average films using it, you're also missing all the controversial/non-mainstream/low budget gems.

    Actually, that's not true

    Yes, there is an element of popularity involved (which is one of the things I was implicating when mentioning nuances with the system). An example is The Dark Knight. Good movie, but overrated on IMDB. The reason for this is because cult favorites, especially from the superhero/comic genre, are appreciated by a larger percentage of avid IMDB users, yet very underrepresented in film catalogue, and so when a good one comes around it's always overrated.

    This is true for virtually all cult favorites. Like Good Bad and Ugly is NOT better than Schindler's List, but it gets a higher rating due to factors like few good westerns, it's historically iconic, etc



    Anyways, back to my point that IMDB isn't biased for mainstream stuff. If you look over say the top 500 movies on IMDB, you will find a ton of obscure, low budget stuff, controversial, and non-mainstream stuff. In fact, most of the best films I've ever seen are due to using IMDB. Films like

    The Celebration - Epitome of low budget/controversial/obscure, etc. Nobody's ever heard of it, but easily one of the best. Danish dogme film.

    Seppuku - Old Japanese Samurai drama. Nobody's heard of it, but possibly in the top five dramas ever

    Evil - Swedish film. Not necessarily among the best ever, but very tip top, and very enjoyable. Again, nobody's ever heard of it

    Rope - Alfred Hitchcock's first and best film. Jimmy Stewart's best film. Talk about controversy, the subject matter of this film is about as controversial as it gets, yet nobody's ever even heard of it

    Miyamoto Musashi Trilogy - Fucking Toshiro Mifune epic kills shit in more old Japanese Samurai that nobody's ever heard of. If you like Westerns you'd love Samurai since Westerns get everything they have from Samurai, and Clint Eastwood's iconic badass gun-slinging persona wouldn't even exist without Mifune and Kurosawa

    The Straight Story - Possibly David Lynch's only 'non-weird' film. Extremely non-mainstream, and surprisingly awesome


    All of those films are some of the best in existence, all very highly rated on IMDB, and all meet the obscure, low-budget, and often controversial criteria. In fact, there are very few mainstream and high budget films with high ratings, and when they are there, they deserve it (like Saving Private Ryan or Gladiator). If IMDB is a popularity contest, it's one among avid film enthusiasts with some semblance of taste, not weekend warriors

    My opinion was based on the top250, which includes pretty much all the box office hits and the most known classics and little else. How do you find out whats in the top500?

    There isn't a list for top 500. For some weird reason, the list for top 250 doesn't update correctly. Of the movies I mentioned, only Rope is in the list, but several others have high enough ratings to be there, yet aren't. That particular list doesn't represent actual IMDB ratings. The rating of each movie is within a few tenths of a point of accuracy at least, but a lot of them shouldn't even be on the list due to other films that are rated higher, yet for some reason aren't there.

    Looking it over, there are a TON of excellent movies that meet your criteria that have the high rating, but aren't on that list. It actually looks like a majority of the movies in my top 50 or so aren't even on the list, even though the majority of them have high enough ratings to be there.

    Werner Herzog's 'Aguirre, Wrath of God' is the epitome of low-budget, obscure, etc. Its rating puts it close to the top 100, but it's still not in the list. Personally, I hated that film, but it's about as good an example as it gets for the kind you're talking about

    P.S. Apparently, the top 250 list only counts votes from regular visitors. So that would explain why its weighted towards more mainstream stuff, but that doesn't stop the great, obscure stuff from having high ratings.

    ... and Rope is overrated.... apparently. Did not know it was in the top anything.

    Wrath of God makes my all-time best list

    I haven't seen it in english though. I thought the original english tracks of Fitzcarraldo were a disaster. I would actually recommend people to watch the german dubbed version with subtitles - Might be the same with Aguirre because it faces similar problems with barely a single native speaking actor.

    - The celebration might be low budget and blah, but everyone knows it, right?
    No self respecting art-tard would give it a bad rating.
    I would consider The Straight Story mainstream.

    Rope is vastly underrated dude. VASTLY

    Literally perfect rendition of a play on film, zero directorial, script, or acting flaws, and Jimmy Stewart has without question the greatest monologue of all time. Nothing even comes close to the epicness of its conclusion

    It's possible I would like Wrath of God a little bit if I watched it again, but I could only take about five minutes of watching the river flow before I got pissed off then just wanted it to end. There are also particular directorial styles that I tend to loathe, and Herzog appears to be one of them, even though I can tell he's very talented

    It's been a while since I've seen Rope. Definitely a good movie. Would recommend to anyone who hasn't seen it, but idk about perfect.


    Bad Boy Bubby - Rolf De Heer... Kasper Hausa type story. I liked it a lot. Idk why I haven't followed the director. I will check out his newer stuff.

    Never watch anything with dubs. Always subs.

    I guess Straight Story could be considered mainstream. I wouldn't because well it's David Lynch and nothing he does appeals to the mainstream, and it's a very non-standard film. I mean, half of it is a guy driving his tractor, yet it's somehow still awesome. That's a sign of a true artist when a director can stray from the standard yet make it great.

    The Celebration is definitely not mainstream. Well, maybe for you unpatriotic pagan freedom hatin commies, but over here if you've ever even seen a Danish film, you're out of the norm

    Just saw "Welcome to the Quiet Room". I was looking for "Quit Room" by De Heer but couldn't find it, so I watched this one instead. It gets a little slow towards the end, but I liked it.

    Another one where I was initially excited, but then decided I best practice avoidance.

    I saw the new Elm Street movie last night and was not disappointed.

    This was my favorite of all horror series' (and I love horror movies) growing up. The visuals are obviously better, Freddy himself is not as cool.

    Overall I'd rank it behind the first couple of the original series, but ahead of the cornier later sequels.

    If you are a Freddy fan you'll like it.

    You seriously think the second one was good? Wasn't that the one at some pool party and it was super awful?

    Like most movies, the first was the best and they got worse as they went along. I like every single one of them though.

    I'm a sucker for horror movies.
