  • Movie/Tv-Series Discussion (possible SPOILERS)

    All the rest (non-gaming) topics

    This is the topic to discuss the recent movies/tv-series you have seen.
    Some of the recent movies I have watched:

    Attack the Block: Loved this movie, can recommend it to anyone.
    Mission: Impossible 3: I love the M:I-franchise and this is a great entry, very enjoyable.
    Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: This is a movie for any old school gamer to watch, I really really really liked this movie.
    The Tree of Life: this is probably not for everybody, but I really enjoyed up until the last 15 minutes which didn't make sense to me.
    The Hangover Part II: I put off watching this for a very long time because I thought it would be a dissapointment. And it was, it was The Hangover meets The Hangover with fewer laughs. It was very predictable because it had the same form as the first one, really disappointing.

    Well...let's activate my memory chip.... :) I don't have a cinema in my town, so I see movies when I visit my Dad :)

    From recent movies I remember seeing was "Tron","Planet of the apes" (or how it's called), "Captain America"....from older movies remember watching "John Rambo", "Rocky Balboa", "Inception", "Avatar", "Alice 3D", "Expendables", "Dark Knight","Yes Man".....

    I'm probably forgetting something....

    John Rambo is the most exaggerated action movie ever, I love it! Great movie to watch with friends, like the ultimate B-movie. I don't have a cinema in my town either, we have to go to the bigger cities which is a 30 minute drive I think. Last movie we saw in the cinema was Killer Elite, which was a dumb action movie with some nice moments towards the end.

    Forgot the "Musketeers".....hated those.

    Just came back from Sherlock :)
    Nice movie...in the style of the first one. Action, humor... overall very much fun :)

    Tomorrow - M:I :)

    I'm long fan of Rocky and Rambo series...love the movies, love the characters, love the songs....
    Rocky Balboa even touched my Dad too :) He said he had tears in his eyes a few times. Rocky 1 is my favourite.
    From Rambo movies...it's probably 1 or 2. Probably both :)

    Great movie to watch with friends, like the ultimate B-movie.

    :beer:

    Well....here it's quite rare. Most cities have cinemas (27 cities to be exact), beside some smaller ones.

    Last movie we saw in the cinema was Killer Elite, which was a dumb action movie with some nice moments towards the end.

    Well, you know the last movie I've seen :)

    Do we include movies that we've seen over the TV, or not?

    I don't really watch TV anymore; the series tend to get cancelled if I ever enjoy them. So I just tend to skip 'em. I'm still catching up on TV series from my youth anyway, like Bionic Woman with Lindsay Wagner. :)

    Oh, forgot the "Pirates of the Carrebean" (I feel misspells :roll: ) that I always see in cinema....love that saga....
    Oh, and forgot "Spiderman"s...I watch them in cinemas too....as you must watch it there, with all the visual effects....

    I usually don't watch TV series, unless they are sitcoms...like "Big Bang Theory", "Friends", "Seinfeld"..."30 Rock"...."Scrubbs"....."That's 70s show"...etc etc...

    But I like "Mentalist"...and sometimes watch CSI too.... Those are made really well.

    I see israely reality shows (sometimes foreign too)....Some I don't, as I hate them..."The big Brother", "Million Race" and such...
    but I love "Beauty and the Geek", "Survival", "Master Chef"/"Hell's Kitchen"/"Kitchen Nightmares", "Israeli Idol" and such...now we have first season of israeli "The Voice" and a few more.

    I don't have movie channels where I live, so I watch movies over TV when I visit my dad.
    From last movies I've seen I can remember ...wel...I'll post when I'll remember :) Mainly good movies I somehow missed in cinemas :)

    My favorite tv-serie at the moment is without a doubt Community, I can recommend it to anyone. Season 2 is one of the best seasons of any series. :D Apart from that I also watch The IT Crowd, The Office (though season 8 is disappointing so far), Parks & Recreation, Extras, Breaking Bad and some that I watch from time to time on Comedy Central like Scrubs, Psych and Friends.

    Returned from M:I :)

    Great movie, lot's of action, lot's of humor (my friend thought it has too much humor for such movie, I dissagree), very intensive...
    Dubai part was the best...amazing scene. Also the M:I fuse lighting sequence, very original and well done.
    Easily the best M:I movie so far. Very much recommended.

    Having russian as native language, I'd say this was one of the more accurate portrays of russians and russian language. Sure much better then old Rambo 3 days :)
    But still - no non-russian actor can EVER learn to speak russian the way we'll actually think he is russian...or in a way that can full any russian/russian guard.
    It's a very hard language to fake...you have to be born into it. The accent, word pronanciation...cannot be faked. Just can't.

    So the native russian speakers/actors in the movie spoke quite pure russian, though in a bit unrealistic way, a bit too moronic and stereotypic (short) phrases and body language. Very unnattural, but at least with native russian pronaniation...
    The rest - well...that's relatively good effort on their side - but very far from sounding like true russian.

    Also getting into Kremlin I'm sure much more difficult in real life :)
