Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter
Possibly just as good as the movie. I'm not entirely sure how Zak Snyder could effectively blend Tales of the Black Freighter into the actual Watchmen movie, but he'll probably find a way.
I am very stupid for purchasing it now. Not because it's terrible. In fact, it's awesome. But I'll probably end up going for the Watchmen/Black Freighter double-dip when it eventually comes out.

I managed to get into an advance screening of Adventureland 2 days ago since my brother works for a college newspaper.
I highly recommend that you guys see it.

Just watched Botched, starring Stephen Dorf, I was laughing my ass off!!! starts slow and you would think it's just another dumb Dorf movie, then your stomach hurts about half way through from the laughter... Maybe this should be in under rated?? Good thread.

Just watched "Escape from NY" and "Escape from LA". The later I've seen a looooong time ago, so it was more of a refresher in context with me watching "Escape from NY" which I was watching for the first time ever
This was preceded by me watching "The Prince of Darkness", "In the Mouth of Madness" and bits and pieces from "The Thing" (pun somewhat intended) the day before.
Yep, it has been a fabulous John Carpenter appreciation weekend.
The Boulder takes issue with that comment.

Not as good as the first two movies (the second one was my favourite), but not as bad as a lot of people made it out to be. It had its good points and the villains and special effects were pretty well done.
I never get motion sick, so I had no problem with it, but my dad had to leave after about 3 minutes. The shaky camera can get a little irritating, but I guess it worked in the way they planned it too. It also worked really well in making the special effects look convincing. I thought the ending was a bit of a disappointment though.

Observe and Report-It's like if Taxi Driver were made as a comedy. It's extremely dark, but well worth seeing. I'm predicting it will be cult classic material.

Pi: Faith in Chaos-Interesting and very thoughtful.
Half of Battle Royale- Entertaining to say the least. Criterion needs to release their own version because the subtitles on the Netflix DVD are horrible.

Just watched "The Resurected", which is based on a HP Lovecraft book. One part of the film was so scary I had to turn on the lights in the room, the build-up until that part had me shivering. I am the kind of person who have watched many scary movies and seldom get scared, so I recommend this if you wanna get scared.

Ong Bak 2 - It has nothing to do with the first one, so I dont understand the title. The story is fragmented and sparce with some scenes that seem tacked on. But story isnt really the reason most people watch martial arts movies. The fights are incredible. Tons of styles and weapons are used. Some very invetive ways to make it not the same old stuff.

X-Men Origins...Wish that the writing was better!! Wish that the story was enough to pull me in from the beginning to the end. Wish that they would let a comic book writer actually write one of these movies. Joss Whedon wrote a great run of X-Men and also Firefly(Serenity). If wishes were horses.....I'd be knee deep in horse crap.

Evil Dead 2-I think I love Turner Classic Movies for airing this completely uncensored. Fantastic.
The Iron Giant-Genius. I love the animation style, and the ending is beautiful. Almost good enough to make me cry.

I'm watching Notorious right now. It's okay, but I wish it were better. Notorious BIG is seriously an awesome rapper, but I'm not really sure if this film does justice to him.

Holy shit what an enthralling, fun, brilliantly entertaining movie. I'd never seen this or any of the Firefly episodes, but this made me an instant fan. Pure movie magic.

Cigarette Burns: Easily the best movie John Carpenter's made in decades.

Blood Freak: Apparently drugs turn you into a turkey-headed, superstrong turkey vampire.

Wristcutters: A Love Story- The only time I'll see Tom Waits and Will Arnett in the same movie. So it was awesome.

The Lost Boys. I think this is the best vampire film ever, with a great soundtrack. Not seen the second, don't if I want to. I'm scared it might ruin the original.

Up: Bambi, you have just been topped for the most brutal opening to a Disney movie ever.
The movie itself is actually pretty funny, but Pixar's storytelling is getting better and better.
Drag Me To Hell: The most intense horror movie that's come out in recent years. Sam Raimi, you are hereby forgiven for the horror that is Spiderman 3.
Seriously though, it's just as good as the Evil Dead movies.

Domino - When you take a story about a Bounty Hunter and let Tony Scott mess with it, movie was enjoyable
The Blues Brothers - I love this movie so much :|

I watched Taken last night with ma lady... I HAVE to say... that is probably up there now with my favorite movie.
The action is ruthlessly fast paced. And for a retiree, he can seriously kick some ass.
If you are a fan of action, you will definitely like this movie!

I saw The Dark Knight again, and it still kicks ass. I would like to see the CGI film Ark again, that is possibly the best movie that no one else has seen.

Outlander-Somehow a bit smarter than I expected a movie that's basically Aliens vs Vikings to be. And actually kind of ....good?
Teeth-Exactly how you'd expect a horror movie about a vagina with teeth to be.
Be Kind Rewind-Still good. Still very good.
Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus-Fun in a Snakes in a Plane kind of way. It's still godawful, though. This clip shows you pretty much what to expect.
