Nice movie selection, especially the Kubrick titles. Clerks happens to be my favorite movie as well.

I like a lot of independent films that most of you probably haven't heard about.

Interstate 60
L.A. Twister
Waking Life
Hypercube
Beer: The Movie
Office Space

Hypercube sucked ass, the first one was a lot better. Office space was funny as hell though.

They were two totally different movies. I happened to like Hypercube a lot more than The Cube.

I forgot to add Track Down to my list.

"Cube 2: Hypercube" was a direct sequel to "The Cube" as the name implys. Hypercube didn't really make a lot of sense, because they were in essense making absolutely everything in the movie up, down to the laws of physics. This caused things to get really stupid, really quick. The movie would have been much better if they hadn't tried to explain all their bullshit theoretical physics. Do movies that take place in the future try to explain how the future technology works? No, the viewer doesn't care, and doing so only detracts from the movie.

It was a sequel, but the plot was totally unrelated to The Cube. In this sense, it was its own story. I liked the movie because it was unique, and held my interest. However, point taken.

While there were no direct relations in the plots, the events do take place in the same world, and are related. At the end of the movie you hear a guy say something about progressing to stage three, which gives the impression that this was stage two, and the first movie was stage one. I may seem rather harsh, but I'm not trying to insult your opinion, I'm just voicing my own.

The first one was the only one that I didn't consider absolute shit. The third, however, was slightly less shitty than the second.

The first one was good for never seeing a movie based on how the world we live in is only what we can see with our eyes. The second one was better in the fact that they put more action into it than they did the first one. The third was what I call the 'Tie-Up' sequel, the one where everything is put together so the story makes sense when you may not want to know how it does.

Phone booth was alright. The art of breaking a man's will with threats and psycology is really entertaining, but he never shot the guy and he got away...I really didn't like that.

The third didn't suck as bad, but the second achieved a level of shittiness that would prove difficult to match even as it's successor.

Now your just sptting shit, number 1 had very little action and number 2 had everything with action and everything while number 3 bored me to bits...

I can see your point that the second one was better because it had more action....if you don't give a shit about continuity of plot. At the end of the first one, Neo achieved a state of enlightenment, and became in essense a god. The second one just threw this out the fucking window, or all those pretty action sequences would get boring fast (which they did anyway). Also, if you watched the first 15 minutes of the movie, you saw pretty much everything the movie had to offer (except that boring ass sequence in Zion). The first matrix was a journey of discovery, Neo went from being chained by his ignorance to supreme power, and developed himself as a character along the way. In the second one, every character was extremely one sided, and quite dull.

I really liked the Lord of the Rings movies.

Cedrios

Man what I can't stand is fight club. It's one of the worst movies ever made. It was Hollywood trying to be trendy by being non-trendy: it made me sick, especially since it was the Acting Pitt playing the star role. As for the whole "hit me as hard as you can/you never know a guy until you fight him" crap that is total BS and was just trying to look "cool." Fight Club ranks up there with Judge Dred, Ghosts of Mars, Blade II, and Troy as one of the gayest movies ever made.

hba
11-08-2004, 12:01 PM
I honestly never saw Fight Club because I saw Brad Pitt on the cover. After seeing him, I just thought to myself...'Wow, this can't be worth watching.'

Dragan
11-08-2004, 05:50 PM
I saw it, it was alot better then i expected it to be so its actually worth watching, but to me the worst movie of all time was "Drumline" starring nick cannon, whay is it that as soon as you have a SMALL ammount of fame u can automaticly become a rapper or singer and an actor!

Duke
11-08-2004, 06:13 PM
I just saw the Incredibles. A lot better than I thought it would be, really good in 3D animation category. There isnt much to choose from, and this would be at the top of my list of 3D movies. Yes, even higher than grinding creamo. (seen it too many times...)

Saw, Leperchaun in the hood 1 & 2, Amercian Wedding, Saving Ryan Silverman, Baseketball, Beavis & butthead do america, Man on Fire, and Jay and Silent bob. I would of said the grudge but plainly... that movie sucked huge balls. Storyline gets a F, for Fucking Retarded. The Jumpy parts gets an F, for Funny as hell. I think this way because the whole movie really doesnt make sense.

hba
11-10-2004, 09:57 AM
Aside from Saw and Man on Fire, you seem to enjoy the comedy category of movies. Unless you find torture and dispair funny as well...that would explain why Saw and Man on Fire are in your list.

Fallen
11-10-2004, 02:40 PM
I like Saw because with the technology today Im assuming people can make an even better Silence of the Lamb kind of movie, and well this is that movie. Plus I like the twist at the end of the movie. And as for Man on Fire, watching a guy assissinate all these people n torture them. I loved every part of that movie except for the end when he dies.

I heard the actors in SAW sucked. Haven't seen it yet though.

Rather sick movie with a good twist, it was well planned but still wont be appealing to a wide audience.
