There's this Brazilian short film I have to go and watch again. It's called "Duas Meninas Uma Xicara"


It's hard to explain, but it involves 2 women... well, more like 2 girls, and they're in a classroom, and over the course of the movie, their inner desire erupts in a sea of, at times, actual human emissions for each other. There's also an object used which is pivotal to the story, and it captures the human spirit quite effortlessly.

i've been working my way thru my dvd collection again lately and just recently have been watching

Clerks 1 & 2
Grandma's Boy
Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle
Hot Tub Time Machine
Role Models
Step Brothers
Lock Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels
The Rise Of The Footsoldier
Banksy Exit Through The Gift Shop

Wouldn't mind catching the new Simon Pegg movie that's due out soon Paul with Seth Rogen doing the voice of Paul the alien.

I'm yet to watch Scott Pilgrim but will probably pick it up soon and add it to the collection for those times when there's nothing on and some my friends tend to use me as there local video store and borrow dvd's off me all the time.

And even with a roommate with an insane amount of DVDs, I find it hard to just sit down and watch one. I'm kinda the "need others to watch it with" movie viewer now.

I'm similar.  My work organised a screening of The King's Speech and I think it was the first cinema I'd visited in about five years.  I also don't like watching DVD's on my own - if I'm at home alone and want entertainment, I'll play computer games instead.  And when we do watch DVDs at home, it's TV shows in nice concise episodes, rather than two hour movies.  My attention span is the real problem...I haven't got one.  :P

Yeah it certainly did have problems but the fact that two people died in three days shows that there was bigger problems with the machines in the grid as a whole, i reckon the higher ups should of done more to make it safer even if meant going slower, like taking away the traction control was ridicules, it's a shame that it took ayrton's life for the racing committee to finally make changes.

And how lucky is Rubens.

Its a quality flick that! I know what you mean by the unexpected. Its best to not even give people any details before they watch it i reckon, leaves them totally engaged in the movie trying to figure out what the fck is happening.

Smith said it will be his last movie too...though that could be BS.
Title: Re: At The Movies..
Post by: Boozey on December 07, 2011, 06:13:33 PM
no he's got one more then that's it, his last movie is going to be an ice hockey movie called "Hit Somebody" i think.  He'll be in Brisbane in April 19 next year with Jason Mewes doing his Jay and Silent Bob Get Old podcast at the Tivoli.

I'm a Kevin Smith fan and listen to a no. of the different podcasts he does. He actually did a series of podcasts for Red State where he'd bring in an audience and people involved in the movie and show a small clip and then do a Q&A session about it.  He basically did a big f**k you to the big studios and released it himself to prove you don't have to spend a s**t ton of money to promote the movie to get it out there. Seems to have worked cause in one of his latest podcasts he mentioned that he's already made back the money from it and its only been out since October and it cost him $10 million to make.

I think its like 11 mins...and yes, not a PG movie. Hell, I know adults who can't even watch it. Gasper Noe the director is a bit demented i think. Monica Belluci is in her prime in that movie though.

Fantastic film, the ending is also rather graphic and extremely violent. No rape scene is easy to sit through but that one was quite discomforting, alongside the ones in 'Deliverance' and 'I spit on your grave' for mine in regards to unease.

The 'scissor scene' in 'AntiChrist' also gets a DM here. Very dissapointed in that film, I love a bit of Lars Von Trier but thought that this one was just utter crap. Two films in one with the gear change half way through way too fast

I watched the first episode a while back and wasn't really impressed.. Was well and truly hung over so that wouldn't have helped! lol Will give it another go..

My recommendations:

Sons Of Anarchy (4 seasons)
Homeland (1 season)
Game Of Thrones (1 season)
Eastbound & Down (2 seasons) - Because I'm Kenny Powers and I'm the man who has the ball. I'm the man who can throw it faster than f**k. So that is why i am better than everyone in the world. Kiss my ass and suck my dick... everyone!

Took my daughter to the latest Muppet movie and actually enjoyed it. They did nostalgia in a very clever way - it took me back, but it wasn't corny.

Co-written by Jason Segel  (Marshal from "How I Met Your Mother").

The barbershop quartet doing featuring Beaker doing "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was awesome.

I'm still not over the fact that this got cancelled half way through and especially seeing as there's a massive gap between the last episode and the movie.  I'm going to keep on dreaming for it to be finished someday.

Agreed. Watched it again recently and it's bloody heart-breaking. The movie did go a long way to tying it up though, but maybe they'll go back one day and fill in the gaps.

I watched Puss in Boots on the plane to Melbourne on Friday night.  Quality film, if you're looking for some mindless, cat-themed drivel set to some catchy tunes.  Not quite as good as Puss' debut appearance in Shrek 2 though.

not really at the movies as such, but Corey Taylor & Shawn 'Clown' Crahan of Slipknot have started up their own film production company and have premiered their first short film titled 'Thy Shalt I' at Sundance recently as well as putting it up on Youtube since then.

It's, well, weird... Not graphic or violent at all which surprised me a little, but very head-fucky (it's a technical term)

One of the best series i've watched on tv is probably Deadwood utter genius, all three seasons.

Also best war series is Band of Brothers, Pacific was not as good but still alright.

And if you like Kung Fu movies The three Ip Man movies are awesome especially the first one, Grandmaster Ip Man, it's all based on the life of the kung fu master who taught Bruce Lee. One scene were he took on 10 japanese dudes was epic, fucked their shit up.

Gettin Square is a fantastic Australian movie with Sam Worthington
and David Wenham who plays a druggie, hilarious.

And Four Lions is brilliant, it's a dark comedy about these four Muslim friends who wanna be terrorists, so they plan a bombing in London and some funny shit goes down, classic scene is trying to teach crows to be suicide bombers.

Plenty more that i couldn't be bothered posting at the moment.

I think i might watch to much TV. ;D

Watched Oblivion last night. Tom Cruise's new flick.

Decent story line and nice special effects.. Got a bit lost with a few plot holes though. I probably wouldn't recommend it for people to hit the cinemas for..

The next flick I'll check out on the big screen will probably be Ironman 3.. That looks insane in the previews!

from the file of unsual flicks i'd rate the following for those who want to download something to watch in the off season...

An oldie but a goodie - Moon - directed by David Bowie's son Duncan Jones.  .

Unknown - with Liam Neeson

Safety Not Guaranteed - great ending....

Red Lights - de Niro 

the Thirteenth 13th floor - 1999.

and then if you are really desperate the offseason romp ......All my Friends are Leaving Brisbane - a real movie that does not star Jurman, Nijland or Meyer....

It's been quite a while since I've actually been to the movies, the last time I went was to see Gangster Squad when it was out.

That was a thoroughly brilliant movie. The characters were brilliant, the action was intense, the dialogue was witty when it didn't get too bogged down in playing up to the old school gangster lingo.

The only thing that really did my head in was the lead gangster guy (for the life of me I can't remember the name of the character or actor) sounded EXACTLY like Rex Banner, from the Beer Baron episode of The Simpsons. Every time he said anything all I could think was "I'll get you Beer Baron...!"

He could wear a costume made to look like an actual mandarin and be brilliant......... then team up with Annoying Orange and be unstoppable.
Trio it up with the Lemon to create the Axis Of Evil Citrus!

Vitamin C for Citrusy Vendetta

I would absolutely watch this movie.

What we need is a Kickstarter campaign.

I didn't mind the length of it.. The banter and dynamics between the different members was pretty cool.. For mine it was worth seeing at the cinema simply for what happened after "Hulk Smash!" lol.. Pretty sure the sequel is in the works.

There's yet to be a good Superman movie as a whole, IMO. The action sequences are usually good but the rest is just awful and cheesy.

I saw somewhere Russel Crowe is lobbying to have a prequel on Krypton featuring Jor-El heavily. That might actually have potential.

Not so much a current movie but movie news nonetheless

Matt Damon to Cameo in 'Sharknado 2'?

Today?s forecast: cloudy with a chance of? sharks!

Syfy's viral original TV movie, Sharknado, continues to set ratings records and take social media by storm since debuting on July 11.  But this time around, for one night only, it took a bite out of the big screen at more than 200 Regal Cinemas across the U.S. and ETonline was at the sold out premiere!  Watch the video above.

It seems nobody?s safe in or out of the water anymore as Sharknado joins Syfy?s growing list of ridiculous shark-themed titles like Sharktopus, Swamp Shark, Two-Headed Shark Attack, and coming soon, Ghost Shark.

Oh, no, no, you are correct. Cera IS annoying, but in this movie, he's even MORE annoying, and it's hilarious.

EDIT : Speaking of Cera, if you have an X360, and have the Crackle app, they've added a few recent movies to the mix, including STEP BROTHERS !!!!!!!!!!!!!. Free to watch with just 1 x 15 sec ad every 10 minutes or so.

I've been watching the Jerry Seinfeld hosted "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" series on Crackle. Funny, but also just great 'chats' with top comedians. The one with Michael Richards is really good, where 'Kramer' admits how much his racial outburst a few years ago just f*cked everything up for him. Brutal honesty.

First Look: Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels Back in Character on ?Dumb and Dumber 2′ Set

by Mike Sampson September 24, 2013 10:28 AM

After many false starts and potential cancelations, filming on ?Dumb and Dumber 2? has begun and star Jim Carrey has revealed the first shot from the set featuring him and co-star Jeff Daniels back as Harry and Lloyd.

Just over 24 hours after Jeff Daniels upset ?Breaking Bad? star Bryan Cranston to win the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series at the 2013 Emmy Awards, he and Carrey are back as the dumb duo on the set of ?Dumb and Dumber 2′ in Los Angeles. And they look as stupid as ever.

The two are holding a copy of Carrey?s new children?s book ?How Roland Rolls? (not-so-coincidentally in book stores today) but, as expected, are doing it all wrong.

[UPDATE - Jeff Daniels has added his own shot, also seen below.]

In addition to Carrey and Daniels, ?Dumb and Dumber 2′ stars ?Walking Dead? star Laurie Holden, Kathleen Turner, Rachel Melvin and, yes, former hockey star Cam Neely will return as Sea Bass.

Check out the first look at ?Dumb and Dumber 2′ below and stay tuned for even more from the film?s set.

Not at the cinemas but I torrented and watched This Is The End over the weekend.

Good lord I'm glad I didn't pay anything for that movie.

Who'd have thought a movie with Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, James Franco and basically every other actor out of every decent comedy for the last 3 years could make such an awful movie.

Conversely, I also watched The Watch a few weeks back and I was a bit nervous and not expecting much after all the ordinary reviews it had gotten but I actually found it really quite brilliant. Richard Ayoade is amazing in it and it's probably my favourite role from Vince Vaughan in years.

Massive night tonight, from a Brisbane perspective.

In a Manila cinema, at 8pm Brisbane time, a documentary pretty much a decade in the making gets its world premiere. And it started right here in Brisbane.

To explain it, I need to introduce two people to the mix. The first is former Trash Video owner, and member of such illustrious Brisbane bands as The Vaginabillies and Big Bongin' Baby, Mr Andrew Leavold.

(http://culturebrisbane.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/trash-videos-andrew-leavold-is-organising-the-grindhouse-and-arthouse-screenings-taken-by-ainslie-mulholland.jpg)

Next is the subject of his documentary, star of Philippine cinema throughout the late 70s and early 80s, a 2 foot 9 inch primordial dwarf (and the Guiness Book Record holder for the shortest lead actor in a motion picture) - Weng Weng.

(http://mimg.ugo.com/201111/5/4/7/212745/cuts/weng_480_poster.jpg)

For Y'ur Height Only (1981) Video Classics Australia Trailer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OxB-jq5XLY#)

When Andrew first saw the 1981 James Bond pisstake movie "For Y'Ur Height Only", starring Weng Weng as Agent 00, he wondered what happened to him. So around 2006, Andrew flew over to Manila to begin the search. Since then, he's returned 10 times, met everyone there is to know in the Philippine movie industry, performed numerous interviews & lectures, and, after raising the editing completion funds via Kickstarter, finally finished the full edit of his documentary in Manila.. TWO DAYS AGO !!!

TONIGHT..... THE SEARCH FOR WENG WENG....... ENDS.

(Also plugging the doco since my roommate is the co-producer. He came onboard in 2009, and has been to Manila 7 times since then. Right now, they're suiting up in their Manila hotel, excited and nervous as all hell. Couldn't be more proud. :)

That is a cool story 10AC. Weng Weng also got a few showings on Japanese TV and a recent ABC doc about exploitation cinema also had hi on for a few seconds, IIRC.
Title: Re: At The Movies..

a recent ABC doc about exploitation cinema also had hi on for a few seconds, IIRC.


Was that Machete Maidens Unleashed by Mark Hartley ? Yeh, basically, SFWW was floundering back in 2009, so Hartley bought Andrew's notes to use for MM (which meant Andrew couldn't do anything on WW until 2011 or so), and barely used any of them. The blessing though was that the info Andrew got since 2009 has changed/shaped the story so much more. As he said before he flew out a few weeks ago (he crashed on our couch as we live close to the airport), if Weng Weng came out in 2009, it would've been nowhere near the story it's ended up as. He feels it was destiny the roadblocks happened.

Also, THIS doesn't happen :

I saw the footage when he and Daniel got back. Getting to meet Imelda Marcos at the family estate, going to her 83rd birthday party, and then seeing where former President Ferdinand Marcos lies in state !!!!! Now THAT'S a money shot and a half.

Cinema hosts ?Mums and Bubs? session of Lars von Trier?s sex-fest Nymphomaniac


DANISH director Lars von Trier?s latest film Nymphomaniac is a four-hour orgy of graphic, often sadomasochistic sex. 
 
Fun for the whole family! That?s what one New York cinema says, anyway. The R-rated flick is the story of a woman?s erotic journey from birth to the age of 50 as told by the main character, the self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg).

Along the way, Joe shags just about everyone she can get her hands on, including Hollywood actors Shia LeBouf and Jamie Bell. The film?s graphic sex scenes have attracted widespread controversy, with von Trier scenes so explicit von Trier has had to explain they were performed by pornographic body doubles and not the actors themselves.

For New York?s Sunshine Cinema, it all sounds like the perfect recipe for a midday ?Babes in Arms? session:
(http://resources3.news.com.au/images/2014/04/04/1226874/411919-417e21b8-bb8e-11e3-9580-78f49dffd642.jpg)

It?s a conundrum, cinema lovers. The R-rated sex-fest is in no way appropriate viewing for a child ... but they do get a FREE TICKET!

I think G of the G is a film for our time.

It has the action, the music, the thoughtful pauses, and the 'orphaned' heroes. Great production values, irreverance, Stan Lee, open ended.

It entertains without extreme violence, overuse of profanity, or sexual exploitation. There are in jokes for everyone and you need no knowledge of this particular Marvel Universe t be thoroughly entertained (I was a complete novice).

It may have helped that I was with a bunch of mates and we'd lubricated beforehand.

Rocket uses humour to hide a very tortured soul. We haven't heard the last of his story in the movies. Take a ten year old along if you can't get any friends keen.
My son's 7 and loves the Spidey movies and that. I think he'll like watching this one yeah?

Most of the sex, violence and profanity is at a level a 7 year old might experience at school.

Yep the new Star Wars movie gets my thumbs up. :D

I won't post spoilers but I'm happy to report it's definitely more like the old 3 movies than the last 3. By that I mean it's not corny and crappy! ;)

A friend of mine sent me a ripped copy. Not sure i like it. Rick Moranis plays this villain with a large helmet who talks about ludicrous speed, Bill Pullman does a great job as the hero (he hasn't looked this good in years), and they somehow got the CGI on point to recreate John Candy wearing a dog costume. Also, the vocal actor for Yoda's terrible. He keeps calling the Force "the Schwartz".

I hear they've released the name of the next installment - "The Search for More Money".

Watched the new Pirates Of The Caribbean last night. I was pleasantly surprised. Story was pretty good and of course the action was sweet as per usual.
