  1. droooollllllll. Of course, that link needs to be followed with a "...when space and money are not an issue"
  2. Total Recall (the new one) Overall I liked it. There were a few bits of tech/setting that were hard to swallow, but that's sometimes an issue with sci fi as a genre. In my effort to catch more classic movies I've missed, my mom reccomended http://www.afi.com/100years/movies.aspx Anyone else have any good lists of "must see" movies? That one seemed a good starting point, or at least a place to grab a few films from. I've seen about half of the top 25, and agree in general. I also like a nice genre diverse list.
  3. A Clockwork Orange Soylent Green Continuing my foray into movies I probably should have seen before, but never got around to. Clockwork Orange was good, but not to be watched lightly. Soylent Green might have been better if I didn't know the secret behind what was going on, but I doubt it. Both interesting takes on the near future from the past.
  4. Re: What Have You Watched Recently? Charlie's Angels 2 Full throttle. Bad, very bad. It goes far beyond suspension of disbelief. Wirework fight scenes are fine, but some of the antics and tricks were just to far over the top. Even half naked hot chicks were not enough to save this movie.
  5. Re: What Have You Watched Recently? Charlie's Angels. Retro-campy fun. And cleavage, oh my, the cleavage. I don't think there is a single frame in that movie that doesn't have a pair of boobs in it, and generally 2-4. I'm also watching Todd, and the Book of Pure Evil. My friend who recommended it described it "Like Buffy, but campier with heavy metal." 4 episodes in, I'm prone to agree. A little more awkward highschool humor then I like, but overall fun.
  6. Re: What Have You Watched Recently? Just watched the Stallone version, and both of you are spot on. It looked and felt like a scifi distopian future. The plot and acting was as campy and poor as I remembered it.
  7. Re: What Have You Watched Recently? Josie and the pussycats
  8. Re: What Have You Watched Recently? Prince of Persia:sands of time. I need to remember this one for next time someone drags out the "All videogame to movie movies suck" line. It wasn't great, but held together OK. The Wife put it in the queue and we watched it together, evening well spent. Das Boot. If there is a more classic submarine movie out there, I'm unaware of it. I watched the extended version, something like 3.5 hours in the black deeps of the ocean. Worth watching.
  9. Re: What Have You Watched Recently? Tank Girl. Another distopian future comic to movie flick. Less grimdark then Dredd, with far more manic, campy, energy. I wonder if Water and Power does the utilities for mega-city one?
  10. Re: What Have You Watched Recently? Dredd. About what I expected, which was fine. Put the '95 Stallone one in the netflix queue, for comparison. Can they -both- be The Law?
  11. Re: What Have You Watched Recently? I do that as well. Whenever I think of a "classic" I've not seen, I drop it into the queue. As an example, I have Das Boot sitting on my coffee table right now. But I am a fan of schlocky cheeze.
  12. Re: What Have You Watched Recently? Part of me wants to make sure the liquor cabinet is stocked up and see how many of these films I can get via netflix...
  13. Re: What Have You Watched Recently? Mystery Men "We struck down evil with the mighty sword of teamwork and the hammer of not bickering" -The Shoveler Everyone who plays super-hero RPGs needs to watch this movie. The cast? Those are the PCs. You want to know how your game would translate to the big screen? This is it. You might aim to be The Avengers, but end up as the Mystery Men.
  14. Re: "Neat" Pictures A picture is worth a thousand words. Or in this case, six.
