Ebert’s Most Hated Movies

Post by Mark

Via Kottke, here is a list of Roger Ebert’s most hated movies with his reasons for not liking them. [Link]

Ebert’s a nice guy, I’ve seen him a couple of times on Jay Leno and always wished I had his job of just watching movies all day long. I don’t think his taste is very cool though, I prefer Rollingstone’s movie reviews, they are a lot cooler and younger then Ebert AND they gave Dukes of Hazzard zero stars! I found that very funny.

NetLag

NetLag

NetLag is a beautiful shortfilm by Pleix. What appears at first as a map of the world with continents lit by electric lights becomes a series of web and video cameras from across the world set in sync with each other to mimic days, nights, and seasonal progressions. To create the movie, Netlag combined footage from over 1609 live web cameras while the music to Netlag was composed by Henrik José aka BLISS. The title of the track is Do You Remember How It Felt?

Darkon – Everybody wants to be a hero

Post by Mark

Darkon

At first I thought this movie was a hoax or a spoof but it turns out its real and its a documentary. Its really interesting and funny, its about a group of people who live 2 lives, their real life where they work and have a regular family, and their play life where they are part of a huge army of medieval warriors. Maybe we should setup the same thing here in Kuwait. [Link]

Million Dollar Baby

Post by Mark

I watched a Million Dollar Baby last night. It was a really good movie but if I had known the ending was going to be so sad I wouldn’t have watched it. I also understand now why people were saying the title of the movie was so terrible. I also got to watch LA Confidential yesterday. I had watched it when it first came out as a cinema copy video and I remember getting bored half way and turning it off. Yesterday I watched it all over again and I liked it a lot. The coolest part was that the mob boss Mickey was played by Paul Guilfoyle, the police captain on CSI. Speaking of which, the first episode of CSI NY will be on August 22nd on TV Land.

Commando Fans (Yeah the movie)

Post by Mark

This site is crazy, I can’t believe there are actual hardcore fans of the movie Commando. It did bring some nice flashbacks of the movie though, I found this quote which I still remember from the movie:

Matrix: Remember, Sully, when I promised to kill you last?
Sully: That’s right, Matrix. You did.
Matrix: I lied.

Now I am going to go look for a Cobra fan site.. [Link]

2 More Movies

Post by Mark

I watched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Collateral yesterday. I really didn’t like Eternal Sunshine and I don’t understand how it was rated one of the best movies ever on IMDB. The movie just dragged too long and some of it was really cheesy. Collateral on the other hand was a really good movie. Tom Cruise was really great, I think this is one of his best roles ever, it really suited him. Jamie Foxx was also really cool, I still remember him from the days of In Living Color so its hard for me to accept he doesn’t have to be funny all the time, but in general I think he’s aged like some good old wine. He just keeps getting better.

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.

Doom Movie Trailer

doom 3 the rock

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]
