Has anyone seen Gravity yet? I've been told it's good and plan on seeing it at the Cinema.

^I saw "gravity" it's worth seeing. I found "the end" predictable & unfunny.

I saw "the counselor" recently, it's okay.

Okay I'm glad to hear another person enjoyed it. Pay day needs to speed up!

all you had to do was flip through the last few pages of this thread that's all that really got talked about.

Bigfoot: The Lost Coast Tapes

Don't let the generic History/ Discovery Channel reality show title, it's actually a generic found footage movie. Actually that's not totally fair, it's one of the better movies with some decent dialogue and better than expected acting, however it goes full retard in the third act that no movie could ever recover from.

Good Burger


I don't remember laughing nearly as much at this movie when I saw it as a kid, but there are a lot of things I didn't understand about it at that time either. This movie is and always will be a classic.

Best scene in the entire movie is when Kel is dancing with the crazies at "Demented Hills Asylum" and yes, it is called that in the movie:

My last two horror night movies were:

CreepShow 2


I remember seeing this when I was younger and the second story about The Raft used to creep me out so badly. I was so scared that I couldn't sleep after seeing it but watching it as an adult it just seems funny and like watching Attack of the Killer Tomatoes/The Blob but I still love that story though.


Evil Dead (1981)


I don't remember ever watching this from beginning to end and I did that last night and loved every minute of it. I went through picking out the slight differences between this version and the 2013 version. I slightly prefer the 2013 version to the original. I can't wait to watch part 2 tonight because I hear that it's pretty much a parody of the first one and it's just hilarious more ridiculous.

Bio-Zombie (1998)

A Hong Kong zombie comedy movie from director Wilson Yip (of Ip Man fame). This is actually one of the more interesting zombie movies I've ever seen because it has some actual pacing in it where the zombies don't show up for awhile so we get a chance to get to know the characters before everything goes to hell. There's some pretty funny slapstick comedy going on in here and a great parody of House of the Dead back when that game was relevant.

If you consider yourself to be a zombie buff you definitely need to check this movie out.

What can be said that hasn’t been said already about Alfonso Cuarón’s masterpiece Gravity? First off I want to make an urgent plea for anybody reading this review to see this film in theaters, not only a theater, but a nice one. Go see this in an AMC with fake IMAX or travel and see it in the real thing. I’m going to be dishing out a lot of dough to see this in IMAX multiple times. It’s a theater experience you really CAN NOT MISS. That being said let’s get to the review.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is my film of the year. This is arguably the most visceral theater going experience I’ve ever had as well. I forgot to breathe through the entire film. You may look at the run time of 90 minutes and feel sad that it isn’t longer. I couldn’t sit through a two and a half hour film like this. I would have a heart attack. From the absolutely stunning 12 minute first unbroken first shot to the rolling of the credits I couldn’t catch my breathe. I was in a constant state of intensity. Did I mention that there are only two actors in this film? TWO! It’s am achievement unlike any other to make such a flawless film with only two people. Cuarón steps in front of James Cameron for creating a world that we have never seen before but guess what…actually exists. Have you been to space? Yeah me neither. Well, this film takes you there. It’s the most realistic portrayal of space I have ever seen and according to most space people, is very accurate in depicting what would actually happen during a disaster like the one occurring in the film. Cuarón took a huge leap of faith by making a film with no explosion noises in the background. There is no sound in space and Michael Bay can suck a fat one after seeing this film. What was thought to take the audience out of the fear of doom actually made it that more horrifying. It’s a film that utilizes silence as a tool and utilizes it well. The film though is not completely silent. There is a wonderful booming score to really lift the dread through the roof. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. It was wonderful.

The acting is also very good. I’m not even talking about Clooney. George hams it up the only way he knows how and while it was wonderful to watch, it wasn’t a stretch from his normal screen personas. This is Sandra Bullocks movie. I’m not fan of hers. She’s always fallen into the category of “I don’t mind them as a person but holy **** do they annoy me on screen”. Bullock hasn’t been that annoying but she has had her moments. Not in this film. She carries it. From start to finish she does a fantastic job portraying a person in utter peril. I believed she was in danger and I was strung along wishing and hoping she’d be okay. The transformation she goes through in this film is outstanding and a great piece of writing.

Don’t let the state of the art visuals and camera work fool you. This is an art film. It’s got this deep theme of rebirth and meaning of existence and a hint of religious overtones that make it more than a thriller in space. I obviously can’t go into much without giving away spoiler points but lets just say that Sandra Bullock goes through many stages of emotions that are artistically crafted through images.

Speaking of images, I can’t say enough how floored I was by the look of this film. I’m a camera nerd and the shots in this thing are nothing I’ve ever seen. There are shots going through space and into helmets and back into space without cutting leaving me to wonder what kind of sorcery Cuarón concocted to pull these shots off. This is why it’s so utterly important to see this on the biggest screen possible. It just isn’t justifiable to see it on a small screen.

This is my film of the year. This is the best action/thriller/sci fi movie I’ve seen in forever and I’ll be damned if something else comes along knocks this off as my number one film of 2013. When awards season comes around if this film doesn’t sweep the technical awards then they have no meaning anymore. There has never been a film like this and unless Cuarón decides to devote another seven years of his life to one project then there never will. Here I come Gravity. Prepare to take a lot of my money in the next two months.

5/5
finally made it yesterday and was beyond floored...if you like movies in any way shape or form then this is a must see on the biggest screen you can get to....damn near flawless
