What's The Last Movie You Saw?

Postby Duke on Wed Dec 13, 2006 7:28 pm

Here's the thread for talking about the last movie you've watched, in theaters or at home. You review it if you like, or just chat about it.

I just watched Scarface, for the first time ever. I've heard lots about it from other males, so I figured it must be worth watching. It was a good movie, I thought. I mean, you can't go wrong with Oliver Stone. I say see it if you get the chance, so long as you're male. :wink:

On of most recent movies I saw was Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine.

I decided I like movies from the 60's, they are funny for their lack of technology. While watching the movie, towards the end I was oddly reminded of Rocky Horror Picture Show (which came later, it almost seems like parts of Rocky Horror were a parody of Dr. Goldfoot).

Plus, the girls in the bikinis weighed more than 90lbs, which was a nice change to see on TV.

Anyone else ever see this movie?

The best film from the 60's has to be Dr. Strangelove or: How I learned to stop worrying and love The Bomb, which is the last film I watched properly (i.e. not on a plane and being served a meal halfway through).

Just last night I watched High Fidelity, which is now in my Top 5 movies of all time.

I just got back from Blood Diamonds. I'd recommend it, unless you're not one for near-constant violence. But the violence somehow doesn't take away from the plot, for once.

The last movie, if you want to call it that, was Hellfire Sex 6. Since it is a porn and I don't want to offend anyones sensibility, I'll let the review go!

I watched 'Lord of War' before that though. That movie makes we want to become a gun runner everytime I see it...

I watched The Good Shepherd last night. It was the best movie I'd seen all year. It was dark, unsentimental, dramatic but mostly unemotional. If you like that kind of movie, I urge you to see it.

Night At The Museum is one I've seen recently. Tis a feel good film. Nothing bad ever happens in it. Normally that kind of thing would be annoying, but it's nice to see movies like that on occasion.

American Dreamz I believe. good movie. blackish comedy which is both a parody of American Idol and George Bush. absolutely hilarious.

of course, I just watched a DVD of the second evar episode of the original star trek. it was... pretty bad, although interesting. I've seen two episodes, and they both involve at least some scene with Shatners shirt half or all off.

About a week ago I saw Apocalypto.

Actually, I saw it twice.

The movie is flawed by unnecessary violence and a predictable plot, but it is a visually spectacular "big-screen" movie. I think a lot will be lost by watching it on the television at home.

meh. our family is on a bit of a Mel Gibson boycott, as I'm sure other are. if its too violent and it has a bad plot but looks pretty, that's great, but theres other things that look good big.

Ever since I saw We Were Soldiers I've been shunning Mel. He destroyed that book. I will never forgive him.

Just watched 'Thank You for Smoking' last night. Awesome movie, I give it 5 on the Necronos rating scale (that is good)

I watched Clockwork Orange on Saturday it was...postmodern. :mrgreen:

I thought it was great, but I can easily see some other people not liking certain bits of it...
