Last movies you've seen
« on: September 03, 2014, 12:24:40 AM »
Here is the place to discuss movies you've seen (it doesn't necessarily have to be in a cinema) if you don't want to start a specific discussion topic.  :nomnom:

Here is the latest movie I saw, in a theater and generally speaking. It has been a while since I left on a trip just after that:


Guardians of the galaxy:

It was nice. I went to see it with one of my brothers and we both enjoyed it. I was pleasantly surprised since I usually don't particularly like superhero movies, but it was funny, and who doesn't like antiheroes?

The last movie I saw was Guardians of the Galaxy too. I loved it so much holy crap.
I've never understood the hype around Marvel movies before but this one just sneaked into my heart. I love Rocket and Groot and Drax and everyone else asldkgalsjdkgjalsdg :wahhh: Is there going to be a sequel? I hope there's going to be a sequel :3 But yeah, if anyone's on the fence I really recommend seeing it!

I feel like such a granny. I haven't gone to see any new films, so I haven't seen Guardians yet. I'll most likely catch it when it comes out on DVD.

Last thing I saw was The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, which I believe to be Heath Ledger's last movie? Pretty good, actually, though I admit I don't quite understand how it all works. The other one was a costume piece called Belle, which I caught on my Amazon Prime account.  Gugu Mbatha-Raw is a freaking beautiful woman, and damn Sam Reid has a sexy beast of a voice. I know it's supposed to be some serious commentary on racial inequality in the 1800's, but that's what I got out of it.

I saw The imaginarium of Docteur Parnassus but I didn't really like it. Or rather, I didn't get it. I remember walking out of the cinema slightly perplexed.

I've always collected slightly wacky films, but I think Parnassus was a little more insane than most. I note some biblical references, and I do sort of understand the concept Gilliam's trying to get it, though I don't necessarily agree with it. It's just a niggling at the back of my head though. I'd have to watch this film over and over again.

I'm sure you're not the only one who has walked out. I actually couldn't get into the film until my third attempt, and watched it in pieces over a span of three days. The acting is great though. I mean, Tom Waits is an amazing actor. I also loved the dialog. I'm a total dialog whore, so if you've seen any films with great dialog, please recommend them!

I'll admit that I didn't put in a lot of effort regarding Docteur Parnassus.
I'm less sensitive to the quality of the dialog with movies in english because I don't master the language well enough, but when the movie is in french, it really makes a difference indeed.  :scratch:

Oh, speaking of good movies, did you guys see Pan's labyrinth? If not, I recommend it. It's a good fantastic movie, but more than that. I particularly loved the ending and how the movie seamlessly incorporated elements of fantasy and historical aspects.

Ah, I've seen Del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth, but honestly I regret having watched it at night. I know it's not meant to be horror, but it was fascinatingly frightening. I love how the fantasy elements are blended into reality so you never really know which was real and which parts were imagination, but I felt that it focused more on the historical aspects than the fairy tale/fantasy elements. Also, it was pretty violent. Some of it was so unexpectedly detailed and drawn out, that I did fast-forward through one part... Yes, I'm a little baby when it comes to this stuff. :eto: But, yes, whoever hasn't seen it, never mind my silly talk and watch it. It's definitely worth your time.

Another Spanish film I watched not too long ago was The Sea Inside starring Javier Bardem. These two were my only tiny dips into the pool of Spanish films. I'm sure there are more great films, I just haven't really heard of them.

Ooh, and come to think of it, if you like fantasy, have you seen The Fall(2006)? The costumes and sets are absolutely gorgeous. It fell a bit under the radar when it came out due to the misplaced "R" rating in America, but I think it'll rise as a cult classic...maybe? /wishful thinking

Pan's Labyrinth is one of my favourite films ever. I watched it when I was younger at Spanish Club at school and was so confused, especially because we only watched half of it and never finished haha. But years later I watched it again and it was so good! I love films that blur the lines between fantasy and reality, and hint at mental illness, it's something I can really relate too. I'd love to hear suggestions if anyone's watched another movie similar to it! I think it's definitely a pretty unique film, though.
Actually, the movie Big Fish does have a similar tone, except with a less serious subject matter if anyone's interested. It's a Tim Burton movie actually, and I love all his stuff :ohh:
And Hats, I love horror movies, and love forcing people who get scared easily to watch them. I think you might fit the bill :grin:

Oh, man, no, I seriously freak out too easily and for too long. My insomnia started when my mom made me stay up to watch Nightmare on Elm Street with her when I was a kid. So for several years, I was afraid to go to sleep because I didn't want to dream. I thought that if I were to fall asleep, I would surely be killed.  :shaded:

But that was when I was 8 or 9. I've just avoided the genre as much as I can nowadays...in order not to relive those memories...Not because I'm scared or anything...No way...  :gasp:

I'm not much of a horror movie fan neither. The only one I saw in a theater, so in optimal conditions, was The Grudge, and it terrified me. I know it is kind of the point, but I was so traumatized I was afraid of my own shadow for about a week afterwards. And I was older than 8 or 9 at the time.  :huh:

Caro I've been dying to know what is being said in this scene of a French film: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=TAT8IwAd8cM

Can you give me a general idea? I loved Linh-Dan since Indochine and in the Beat That My Heart Skipped but my French hasn't been in use for 10 years and there aren't many French films available here except for award winners and audrey tautou films :wahhh:

"The beat that my heart skipped" was such a good movie! I loved it!  :uhhuhyeah:

Here is my clumsy translation:

- I have some very good cocaine if you'd like.
- I have been explaining to you how I've been trying to stop drinking for an hour and you offer me some cocaine?
- Cocaine is not alcohol.
The man huffs, then she says:
- Do you mind if I remove my clothes? [The phrasing and words she uses are very provocative]
- Who are you exactly? The devil? Is that it?
She smiles. Then he continues:
- You wander all summer in festivals to make unfortunate authors and unfortunate comedians lose their minds... But I thought you were in love with Richard.
She gets up and goes towards him as he looks at her suspiciously. Then, as she embraces him, she murmurs:
- You or him, it's the same... What is it? You don't find me attractive? I'm not your type?
- You are( /I do) [In French, unlike in English, the affirmative answer to both questions is the same]... You are (/I do)... Or rather, you're not!
He forces her to release him. She asks angrily:
- Are you going to pretend you've never cheated on Maude?
- That's none of business!
- Of course it's my business! There am I, right in front of you, offering myself, and you reject me! Of course it's my business. I'm a spectator, everything is my business!
- Okay, it's your business... Okay... I'm going home now.
He gets up. She stops him.
- Do you really want her to fall in love with you again?
- Yes, I really do.
- Then do you know how to fall in love?
- Hmm...
- Aren't you a comedian? Haven't you studied the authors? The great authors? The classics?
- I did.
- And it didn't give you the slightest idea.
- It didn't.
- I can't believe it! You're such a klutz! I have been watching you act for ten years, been admiring you for ten years. Ten years that I've been thinking "here is a man who unraveled the mystery of feelings, here is a man who has understood!"
The man tears up and answers:
- What do you mean, ten years? You have seen me on stage before?
- Yes, I have seen all your plays of course, all those with Richard and the others!
- I think you creep me out, actually...
- Why, because I've said I admire you? But admiration is not dangerous, it's inoffensive.
Silence. Then she says:
- Kiss me.
He answers sarcastically:
- Oh, please...
End of scene.
