Well, I'll see that all those dates are free.
Title: Re: RC & Nacho Movie Dates

Gotta free up for I Am Legend. If it sucks I'm really afraid I'll get arrested for disturbing the peace.

Noted on the calender.  Let's challenge ourselves by going to the opening night of each of these.
Title: Re: RC & Nacho Movie Dates

X-Mas night for AvP is the only tough one.
Title: Re: RC & Nacho Movie Dates

Actually, yeah, that won't happen.  But that can wait till Boxing Day!
Title: Re: RC & Nacho Movie Dates
Post by: nacho on November 26, 2007, 06:21:51 PM
First up:  I Is Legend.   

edit: I was looking at the wrong month.

Dec. 14th is the APA Christmas party...that whole weekend is out cause I'll be drunk.  Want to crash it?  We're having an after party at the Black Rooster.  And an after-after party somewhere...
Title: Re: RC & Nacho Movie Dates
Post by: RottingCorpse on November 27, 2007, 10:35:40 AM
Doubtful on the party.

Maybe we'll wait until Boxing Day and do an I Am Legend/AvP2 double feature. Er, when is Boxing Day?

I will still be in the Paris.

I Am Legend and AvP2? Can you handle that much shittiness in one night?
Title: Re: RC & Nacho Movie Dates
Post by: RottingCorpse on November 27, 2007, 01:42:00 PM
I think AvP2 is going to bad in a fun way, at least I hope it will be. I Am Legend is another bowl of fish entirely.
Title: Re: RC & Nacho Movie Dates

It's a bowl of fish, alright.

So let's work this, RC.  Dec 16 maybe for I Am Legend?  Or the night of the 17th?
Title: Re: RC & Nacho Movie Dates
Post by: RottingCorpse on December 03, 2007, 02:12:56 PM
I have plans on the 17th so the 16th seems best.

RC -- just left a VM.  I Am Legend is at the Uptown... 1pm, 4pm.  Think we can make it?  Hit Cleveland Park about 11am and pound a few at Nanny's, then walk over?
Title: Re: RC & Nacho Movie Dates
Post by: RottingCorpse on December 13, 2007, 04:47:32 PM
Should be fine. I've toyed with the idea of coming up on Saturday night, but Mrs. RC's recent job shake-up has her in odd moods this week.

Okay... Sirharles may be joining us.  We must drink, so come early and we'll plan to hit Nanny's around 11.  Also there's going to be a snowstorm at the same time.

So, next weekend: Cloverfield? Mrs. RC would actually like to join us for this one, but we have to see what her rehearsal schedule is. What's good is that she's rehearsing in DC.

I'd like to see Teeth as well.

Title: Re: RC & Nacho Movie Dates

It sucked and should be avoided.  Watch it on TV because (1) that's the only way to really enjoy the shaky cam and (2) It's not even worth a matinee.  Fuck you Abrams. 
Title: Re: RC & Nacho Movie Dates
Post by: RottingCorpse on January 21, 2008, 01:52:01 AM

Guy I work with said it was alright... his biggest complaint was that the hand-cam shit made him dizzy and he'd have to look away from the screen every once in a while.  That's a pretty huge complaint for me and would totally ruin a movie, regardless of how much merit the movie itself had.  I hate that kind of crap.

My complaint is that people can get pierced through the chest with rebar and dance afterwards.  And that the monster is silly.  And that everything else is silly.  And that nothing is explained.  And that no character is likable or believable in any way.  It's one loooong gimmick.

Let me know just how bad it is.

For some reason, all I can think to compare it to is if there's some sort of cataclysm in the near future then, 40 years later, a major fan initiative, guided only by a few minutes worth of youtube footage as the rest was all destroyed, convinces a Russian Sci-Fi channel to reboot Stargate.  It's not like Stargate, it just has those sort of production values.  Well, no, it has the production values of the first Rambo...

Also, I think there might have been an accident.  There are two movies -- a high school drama and the alien-predator love affair.  So the good news is that you can pick which one you like!  I prefer the high school drama, which has NOTHING TO DO with all the shit going on between the aliens and the predator for 50 minutes.  Then, when the two movies do meet, it's really retarded.

For a while, I thought it wasn't so bad.  I only wanted to kill myself three times.  Then I realized that it was only at the halfway mark.

It's laugh out loud ridiculous after 60 minutes as it becomes a montage of unrelated scenes for the rest of the movie.

The novel is intensely hard to read, because he has a sort of experimental writing form (which that link talks about), but the story is so gripping that you can't help but push through the idiotic arty writing "style."

All doom and despair apocalypse.  The rape gangs in the asylum, the government freaking out, the soldiers losing their shit... And then escape into hell.  All with the sighted girl sort of hiding her gift but still trying to orchestrate everything.

Maybe Indy can wait... There's no avoiding the bad press, no matter how much I try:

Quote
Don't call me a sour-puss, call me a soothsayer. Here's more bad news about the new "Indiana Jones" flick.

Former St. Pete Times television critic and frequent Stuck in the 80s guest-host Chase Squires caught a special screening of "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" on Sunday, and he was dumbfounded on how simply dreadful it was.

"Oh, sweet Jeebus. This movie made NO sense and burned through millions in pointless special effects, interesting no one," Chase writes in his "Dirty Thoughts" blog. "The dialogue is silly, the premise involves space aliens (seriously, space aliens). ... Not to mention the fist fights (about 72 percent of the movie is fist fights), and Harrison Ford looks positively annoyed."
Title: Re: RC & Nacho Movie Dates
Post by: RottingCorpse on May 19, 2008, 02:56:48 PM
Harry Knowles at AICN loved it which immediately makes me skeptical.

And honestly, with all that's going on this week, I may be hard pressed to make Friday happen.
Title: Re: RC & Nacho Movie Dates
Post by: nacho on May 19, 2008, 03:01:30 PM

Title: Re: RC & Nacho Movie Dates
Post by: RottingCorpse on May 19, 2008, 03:05:49 PM
The 7th might be good.

Though most reviwers at www.rottentomatoes.com are saying "Not bad, but not great either."

That's because it's not the shit on your childhood fuckfest of Star Wars.  Everyone's so fucking glad it's not Phantom Menace that they're celebrating what is, otherwise, a really bad movie.

It's testament to the quality of the franchise that the formula manages to still keep this movie above water.  But if this wasn't an Indy movie, I'd be bitching for a page right here.

Title: Re: RC & Nacho Movie Dates
Post by: nacho on October 15, 2008, 01:41:37 PM
You know I haven't seen Casino Royale, right?

I'll summarize:  James Bond is now a superhero with special powers and ninja balance skills when fighting in the field.  At home, he's a bizarre combination of the Pierce Brosnan "fossil" James Bond and a moderately polite Sean Connery. 

He enjoys overlong romantic sequences, absurd gun battles, and spending too much time in Venice.

Straying just about 17 light years from the Quantum of Solace short story, this movie will be a sequel to the last one where, after two and a half agonizing hours, Bond went rogue in a vaguely passive way that didn't really ask for a sequel.  In fact, we had no idea that was the message at the end of Shitfest of Bullets & Weak Female Leads until the Quantum of Solace trailers started showing and that British lady we all like turned to the camera and told us.
