O_O how dare you phaser me. that film was just not as good as the other STs made that decade.

as for 2001 Space Odyssey, i thought that was a cool movie when i was a kid. for some reason the whole computer talking to the hologram of the dude who was sucked into the monolith thing blew me away. what HAPPENED to him anyway? I've always wondered about that....

and no it wasn't the best film of that decade, it was made in 1979. anyone remember what ELSE came out in 1979 that was infinitely better? I do, and I wasn't even born yet.

Somnambulist,

Sorry, I misunderstood; I was referring to the 2004 "Crash" directed by Paul Haggis. Never seen Cronenberg's "Crash," though if it's anywhere near as boring as "Spider" or "Eastern Promises," I think I'll pass.

"Requiem" I loved because it was, at least from my viewpoint, more about self-delusion leading to one's inevitable ruin than about "saying no to drugs." These four characters have their own goals, but no matter how much they reach, or how hard they push each other, they never get what they want most, and so they cling desperately to their fantasies even as their world crumbles around them. It's something that really resonates emotionally, at least for me.

Every time I watch Ellen Burstyn's monologue, I shed a tear.

"Mwah ha ha ha...mine is an evil laugh. Now die."

You said it wasn't the best ST film of that decade- my joke is, that it has to be, since it was the only one to be made in that decade...

so what came out in '79 that was better? Star Wars was '77, Superman was '78...Alien was '79, so was Black Hole, but I like ST:TMP better than them both!

There is a sequal, based on the book. 2010 The Year We make Contact. Movie - eh, book excellent!


EDIT: Chrisisall, While I like ST:TMP, I would rather watch Alien or Black Hole. Alien is creepifying, and Black Hole has been a favorite of mine since it came out(probably cause I was a young un). Vincent is still my favorite wisecracking robot.

It's a 2003 film based on Stephen King's novel of the same name. While King's novel is pretty well-done, it just translated horribly to the big screen. And it was written and directed by Lawrence Kasden, who wrote The Empire Strikes Back and Raiders of the Lost Ark, so I was expecting someone at least... good.

Both films are good (especially Alien), but ST:TMP is solid sci-fi, and that's my first love... Behind Serenity, which is the BEST of EVERY genre, of course.

That clears that up :D

I've not seen Spider or Eastern Promise so I can't comment on those, but given where Cronenberg was heading with Crash I'd ere on the side of caution and maintain my wide, very wide birth of any more of his films.

I've not heard that viewpoint before - that's a different turn on things. I must say I never read it like that. That I guess is the beauty of films.

I should add that in a room of four people I was the only who had any misgivings about it. So it's maybe just me. Sometimes a film for whatever reason just rubs me up the wrong way. Interesting.

GorramGroupie: hahaha, yes, yes, the thread is getting quite silly. LOVED that MP skit ><

--by decade I meant within the 10 yr period from 79 to 89, sry for not specifying. and actually, SW4 came out in 77, and SW5 in 80 so i was off by a year, but both were still far better than ST, and since both ST and SW were made in the seventies, SW was the better ;-)

Yeah...I kept waiting for Shrek to pop out of a corner and say, "GOTCHA!"

Honestly, if they went through all the trouble of hiring actors and having them go through the motions and then layering the CG on top of it, why not just do a live-action thing? I tried, I really did, but I just couldn't take that movie seriously.

I can't believe this hasn't shown up on this thread yet:

WATERWORLD

worst movie ever!!!!!

I love disaster flicks, post-apocolyptic stories, etc. I like all types - the good, the cheesey, even semi-bad ones (Armageddon, Dante's Peak, Mad Max, Andromeda Strain) and can appreciate the story, effects, and/or general themes, but I could not stomach Waterworld. I even tried watching it again years after to see if maybe I just wasn't in the right mood the first time around, but almost had to poke my eyes out with a dull spoon. I have never seen the entire film, and am resentful of the time I did lose to that stupid waste of celluloid.

Ah, I feel better for venting...

It looked funny, but it was just flat-out retarded.

It's also pretty vulgar, and there are definitely more than a few sex jokes.

Agreed. I had heard really bad critic reviews of the Postman, so I didn't see it for the longest time, but happened to catch it on cable one afternoon and enjoyed it enough to watch the whole thing. I don't know what Costner was thinking when he did Waterworld! Temporary insanity??? I know that's how I felt watching the few minutes I saw...

I can't believe I stayed but I'm glad, it is really taking some strides. The numbers keep going up and up so it's really getting good. I recommend checking it out again.

Anyone notice how the animators spent ALL of their time and effort into making Angelina Jolie look as real as possible, and didn't give half a thought to any of the other characters?

After seeing the "300" I was not sold on this graphic novel style of storyline. That is the main reason I stayed away from Beowolf. It appeared they were more interested in their animation abilities than an decent movie. I don;t know about Beowolf, but in the 300 when they brought out a seven foot tall Xerxes I thought that was over the top.
I enjoy fantasy, but Beowolf is a legend and the 300 is a true story and I feel thaey should be treated with some respect.

One supremely irritating facet of Beowulf is the knowledge that Zemekis made Forrest Gump, so our reasonable expectation is that he should be able to accomplish more than a film as old as Gump, where the FX were great I thought.

ENCHANTED

Oh my God, this is the biggest mistake I've made recently in terms of seeing a trailer and thinking "OK, I think I might like this." I went in thinking that this'll be Disney finally going post-modern after seeing how SHREK schooled their asses six years ago.

Five minutes it, I was thinking to myself "Put a gun in my mouth and paint the seats with my brains." Mind you, this was only the animated part of it. Decided to stick it out for the live action bulk. One hour in, and then there's a musical number in Central Park. Talk about going back on what you promised and completely negating the point of the entire movie. Rats, pigeons and cockroaches cleaning an apartment I'll buy, but not a Central Park musical number. After the SHREK trilogy (which even though the third one was lame had the various princesses going into asskicking mode), it's hard for me to take this stuff seriously at all. And at that point, I said to myself, "OK, that's it for me." I'll be blaring death metal and grunge from my iPod to get the memory of those songs out of my head. I hated those Disney songs when I was a boy, and I still hate them today.

I don't care if BEOWULF is inaccurate or a 300 knock-off or has shoddy animation. At least it doesn't make a non-diabetic six year old girl search for an insulin needle.

Never have I wanted to see THE MIST and NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN more than I do now. After seeing what I have of ENCHANTED, I need to see something that looks like it's escaped from the gaping maw of the abyss. And if I ever have a daughter, I will only show her Miyazaki, SOUTH PARK, BATMAN THE ANIMATED SERIES, GARGOYLES, JUSTICE LEAGUE, FUTURAMA, AMERICAN DAD, Joss Whedon shows and the most gory ultra-violent stuff out there so that she won't be asking me for a princess themed birthday party or anything akin to that.

I imagine the irony is that the people that didn't like BEOWULF or DARJEELING LIMITED (two movies I really liked, actually) will probably love this.

ew, enchanted? I'm sorry, I really am. I saw the trailer for that, and the first words out of my mouth were "oh my god disney ripped off its own original classics." Not to mention the fact that I realized they have truly run out of ideas for anything new and original. If you need to borrow some BLS or Korn or whatever to get those -i'm gonna go with- atrocious songs you heard, let me know.

Honestly, I kinda can't wait for Jumper to come out in Feb. I'm waiting for the book to be reprinted so I can get it (according to amazon it is being reprinted)

Well, as it turns out, both THE MIST and NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN were good enough cleansers to wipe any residue of ENCHANTED off of me. The former is this years DESCENT (that is, a scary movie that's actually fucking scary), and it is quite possibly the most bleak, nihilistic thing you'll see in theaters. I know some people will see the ending as a cop-out, but taken in context of the entire flick and what happened right before the big reveal, it's pretty devastating.

And then NO COUNTRY was almost as bleak, but it's more subtle. You don't have an immediate reaction to it of "That was FUCKING AWESOME!!!" It sits with you for a while. I think it'll take a few day and maybe another viewing of it for it's power to sink it. I mean, it's as fine made as a Swiss watch, but it's emotional impact is subtle and not right away.

But it definitely drowns out Amy Adams and those fucking songs. If they pop back in my head, I can just picture Anton Chigurh pressing the cattle gun against Amy Adams' forehead. Or Marcia Gay Harden commanding a mob to throw McDreamy out into the mist as a sacrificial lamb.

I never walked out on them (because both times I was with one of my brothers) but I absolutely hated (and by hated I mean made me sick to my stomache and made me want to vomit) two blatantly unecessarily violent films. One of them a favorite among The Coats.

Even Horizon, which made no sense and was just a blood bath (and consequently gave me nightmares for a year, I kid you not)

And Sincity, which I looked forward to, but in the end it was all I could do to keep my stomache from bringing up my breakfast.

They were both unecessary gratutuos violence (some will disagree about SC) and I hope never to see either of them again.

But now I understand there's going to be a sequel for SC. Now there's a tonne of wasted money that can be put to better films. *ugh*

One I should have walked out on was Ultraviolet. You wanna talk about one long, bloody swordfight...
