The Machinist

the machinist

Yesterday night I watched the movie The Machinist which stars Christian Bale (Batman Begins, American Psycho). I am not that big a fan of Christian Bale but he is a cool actor. So anyway when the movie started I spent the first 5 minutes trying to figure out if the actor we were watching was or wasn’t Christian Bale. It was incredible, Bale was like incredibly skinny, like you can see every single bone on his back and chest. Turns out for the movie he went down from 86KG down to 58! The guy is really fucking crazy, he is such an incredible actor for being that dedicated to the part. The movie was also great, there was some suspense at times which I usually hate but overall the movie with the ending was truly something. If you can get a hold of the movie definitely get it. Here is a link with pictures from the movie where you can see how skinny he was. [Link]

The Aviator Sideways

Post by Mark

I watched The Aviator yesterday and Sideways. I was really disappointed with both the movies. Sideways was long and slow, I spent the last hour just forwarding through the movie. The Aviator was also long and slow and I nearly fell asleep watching it, Nataly fell asleep watching it. After watching the amazing movie Crash the other night I doubt I will be able to find another movie that will top it. I have 3 more movies to watch now, The Longest Yard, Eternal Sunshing of the Spotless Mind and Million Dollar Baby. Hope they turn out to be good.

Remember when I said Doom was Doomed? Well I guess I was right. I just watched the trailer and I have to say I would rather watch my brother play Doom 3 on the Xbox. [Link]

Movie Bonanza

Post by Mark

Since I installed the Xbox Media Center I started downloading movies from the web again. I stopped downloading movies along time ago because it was a pain watching them on my computer. Now with the Xbox Media Center I stream all the movies onto my TV in the living room. I downloaded 7 movies this weekend, Sin City, The Jacket, Monthy Python and the Holy Grail, The Ring Two, Napoleon Dynamite and Anchorman. I only managed to watch 3 movies though.

Sin City turned out to be great. I had totally forgotten how the actual comics were made up of short stories so I was glad to see this got transferred into the movies. Mickey Rourke was the best thing about the movie, I am glad his career is back on track now.

The Jacket was so so. My brother thought it was an amazing movie so I was expecting it to be so, but I found it un-eventual and slow. They could have done so much more with this movie. Adrien Brody is a good actor though, I like him.

Napoleon Dynamite was hilarious. I have never seen such sad looking characters in my whole life, they are the most incredibly dorky and geeky people you could ever meet, and they fucking kicked ass. Pedro is like the man!

Tonight I am probably going to watch Anchorman. I am also downloading the A-Team season 1, hopefully that will turn out to be as good as I remember it.

Overall the quality of the movies were really good, like DVD quality and all were actually DVD rips not in movie recordings. The only downside is that from all the movies I downloaded non of them have Dolby Digital so I am stuck watching all the movies in Stereo mode only.

House of Wax Out… of the Theaters

Post by Mark

According to an email from Moe, the movie House of Wax was removed from all theaters in Kuwait by KNCC due to heavy pressure from the Ministry of Information. I have no clue why they would do this since the movie was already heavily cut, maybe Paris HIlton is just banned in Kuwait.

Doom is Doomed

Post by Mark

the rock doom

The Doom movie is going to come out soon. Its being directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak, the guy who directed the movies Twins, Speed, Dante’s Peak, The Devil’s Advocate, Lethal Weapon 4 and Thirteen Days. The problem though the movie is starring The Rock! Thats why the movie will suck, The Rock sucks. Maybe 12 year olds think he is cool but to adults he is just lame, they might as well have used Hulk Hogan instead. I am trying to think of who would be better then The Rock but sadly I can’t seem to think of anyone else. Van Diesel is more of the extreme sports guy who cares only about himself, not the team leader type. Sylvester Stallone seems like a good option with his past experiences but he’s old now, Woody Harrelson although cool in Natural Born Killers I just can’t seem him leading a group of elite men on a mission to Mars. Who else is left? Wesley Snipes? No, Clive Owen? No, Samuel L. Jackson? No, Colin Farrell? No. There really aren’t that many guys who can fit the part.

Actually, maybe Robert De Niro would fit the part. He was pretty cool in Heat oh and Val Kilmer, he would also fit the part, even Al Pacino. Denis Leary was cool in Judgment Night. Actually if you put these guys together they would make a pretty cool fucking team. That would make Doom a much better movie. Put Robert De Niro, Val Kilmer, Al Pacino and Denis Leary on the same team against The Rock, Van Diesel, Collin Farel and Wesley Snipes and I think you would have one fucking amazing movie.

Here are some shots from the upcoming Doom movie. [Link]

Alone in the Theater

Post by Mark

Its amazing how trailers can make movies look so much better then they really are. After watching the trailer for the movie Alone in the Dark me and Nat really wanted to watch it. So I just checked it out on IMDB and it got a score of 2.2 out of 10. The lowest score I have seen on IMDB, even Paris Hilton’s House of Wax scored a 5. As one reviewer put it, a better title for Alone in the Dark would have been Alone in the Theater.
