Very Hot topicWhat was the last movie you saw and how was it?

The Secret Life of Pets
Gidget and Snowball carry most of the weight, aside from that and a few funny quotes, everything else is eh. No shortage of mundane chase sequences. The sausage factory is just like that one scene in The Simpsons. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOziWm_MJ9k The dead owner subplot is never resolved. The ending is the single worst part of the movie, it glamorizes owning a pet, including birds and fish, even going so far as having the fish and its owner actually kiss each other at the end. So remember kiddies, you can have a deep and lasting relationship with a fish that you've purchased and stuck into a small bowl.

Pet Fooled
A very illuminating critique of pet food companies... or basically companies in general and what they'd be willing to get away with if they could. (which merely happens to be very easy when the consumers of the products are pets, not humans) I would highly recommend watching this even if you don't own a pet.

P.s. the film even presents a case for why dogs and cats shouldn't eat pet food at all, and instead you should just serve them meat. (Since that's what used to eat before they were domesticated) Turns out dry pet food exists only because of World War 2, since canned pet food became banned.

Kinda makes you wonder how much of what we regularly buy is a cultural construct, decided by some suits in a boardroom somewhere.

I think the last movie I really sat down and watched was Arrival. It was pretty good, I definitely enjoyed it. Maybe not the best movie I've ever seen, but I kind of enjoy the "smart sci-fi movie of the year" genre, even if the ending was a bit too convenient and full-circle-ey. Probably like a 7/10 or something.

Quote from Klemoib on April 11, 2017, 10:15

yeah I think I hated ep 2 more than 1. Ep 3 seemed even suckier than 2 to me.

lol the old movies will only get raped by new cgi. I could not find ep 4 without added cgi.

I found the OT original film releases somewhere online, and they hold up quite well. Every subsequent release seems to get worse and worse, because George Lucas is a bit of a hack and his vision of what the movies should have been is way fucking worse than what he was forced to do with the limitations of the genre when the films were made. Sometimes constraints make for better art, because they force creativity when CGI and the like can allow for a whole ton of neat visuals coupled with a whole lot of creative laziness.

I saw Kung Fu Panda (excellent movie) and a documentary called Get Me Roger Stone, which I thought was neat.

Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room

Paints a pretty sordid picture of wall street and corporate America. So much so that I'd say what happened here is probably a foreshadowing to the housing bubble and Bernie Madoff. The film might have agreed with me if only it was made after 2008.

An interviewee actually said "it could happen again" toward the end of the film. But maybe it should have been written "it *is* happening". I mean all the banks that dealt with Enron are still alive, you think they've changed their ways?

Sin City - A Dame to Kill For, as expected beeing less good than the first flick.

The Revenant, surprisingly intense plot with a landscape in main role.

It was really good, a proper old school action thriller.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead men tell no tales. The best in the series since the first, it's a really good film.

Terminator Genesis, decent i guess convinces me to a "no drugs for script writers" campaign.

Trainspotting 2. I actually turned it off an hour into the film, it was garbage. 4/10 is generous.

I saw Rogue One recently cause it was added to Netflix and I thought it was ok. I think I can see where msg is coming from, the movie gets by and nothing more, there's nothing to love about it. Although I liked the droid, the kung fu guy, and the villain, not to mention the Darth Vader scene which is now burned into my memory.

It's naïve to expect much from Star Wars under Disney, anyway.

The last movie I saw was Cloud Atlas, and I liked it. I'm actually considering reading the book. >_<
