      i dont know if vici christina barcelona is a romcom, but even if it's not, it deserves to be seen.  if it is a romcom then it's top tier.

    1 the master

    2 holy motors

    3 moonrise kingdom

    4 amour

    Looks like HeaT and I are the only one who really liked The Master, although it definitely isn't my favorite of 2012, probably not even in my top 10.

    Romantic comedies are more appealing to me than their un-romantic counterparts.

    27 Dresses
    Bride Wars
    13 Going on 30
    Fool's Gold
    How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
    This Means War
    The Proposal

    ...Just a few of the ones I've enjoy over the past few years. Step Brothers, Pineapple Express, etc. don't really do it for me.
    Be well.

    Pineapple Express is a lot funnier than it seems like it would be.

    Step Brothers is where laughter goes to die.

    Forget trying to pass for normal. Follow your geekdom. Embrace nerditude. In the immortal words of Lafcadio Hearn, a geek of incredible obscurity whose work is still in print after a hundred years, “Woo the muse of the odd.” You may be a geek. You may have geek written all over you. You should aim to be one geek they’ll never forget. Don’t aim to be civilized. Don’t hope that straight people will keep you on as some sort of pet. To hell with them. You should fully realize what society has made of you and take a terrible revenge. Get weird. Get way weird. Get dangerously weird. Get sophisticatedly, thoroughly weird, and don’t do it halfway. Put every ounce of horsepower you have behind it. Don’t become a well-rounded person. Well-rounded people are smooth and dull. Become a thoroughly spiky person. Grow spikes from every angle. Stick in their throats like a pufferfish. -Bruce Sterling

    Step Brothers is fucking hilarious.  Will Ferrell is funny.  I don't care what he does, he is possibly the funniest improv/sketch actor working today.  This means in a movie like Step Bros which is basically just him and John C Reilly improving for 90 minutes with a sprinkling of Adam Scott, Rob Riggle and Richard Jenkins is at it's baseline funny as fuck.  That's a tasty comedy meal.  Is it the kind of comedy that everyone is going to like?  No fucking way, but to say it's where "comedy goes to die" is a bit over dramatic.

    Nah, that would be Ted. Figured maybe Seth Mcfarlane would try and save his best material for a film......but he has no material. It still blows my mind that alot of people I know thought Ted was the funniest comedy they had ever seen.

    Ferrell is a good comedian and Reilly is a gifted actor, full stop.

    That said, Step Brothers is like 15% successful jokes, 85% like getting jabbed in the head with a fondue fork. And that's probably a generous estimate.

    Some of the greatest comic actors in movie history have done their best work when on a leash and their worst when off it. I would probably look a lot more favorably on Step Brothers' schtick if it were in small doses, but it quickly becomes grating in a feature length movie.

    Yeah, I don't agree with this at all.  I can just put on Step Bros and laugh for 90 minutes.  I'm a fan of improv and sketch, so the insanity of Step Bros, which is basically just long form improv with a very loose plot, appeals to me.

    There's a reason sketches tend to last for only a few minutes at a time.

    Superman CG cape! Nice! Bout time they use CG for good.
  • angryliberalangryliberal I beat cancer. Joined: Posts: 6,282
    I'm going to sound like a dick here, but I guess that's pretty par for the course with me, but I just trust my own judgement of comedy way more than really anyone else on SRK.

    His cape was mostly CG in the last movie, too.

    Which is odd, because there were a shitload of shots in that movie where you'd think they would have CGed them in their entirety, but a lot of them are greenscreened with the actors like in the old days. Not that I'm complaining. In live action, I prefer looking at real people and objects, rather than pixels that were cartooned up in a computer.

    Hopefully they're doing that with the new movie. Obviously Nolan prefers to minimize the use of computer effects, but who knows how much control he's asserting in that regard.

    Yea I didnt see that last superman, Returns? i think? But the way they are hyping it up it sounds like it will be implemented better then the last failure. 

    Zach Synder has a good grasp on CG and how to not over use it like other directors, who depend on it. I trust him for sure.

    Wasn't Todd Mcfarlane trying really hard to get Spawn reboot going....and failing?

    Flight was pretty good, pretty dark material for Zemeckis, not what I expected.

    Anybody watch the Warriors before?

    Just watched it myself and it is a pretty decent movie for weird reasons......

    Mainly the scenery is what intrigued me, as it felt culturally conflicted between the 70's and 80's, and some of the scenes such as Cyrus' speech(The 'CAN YOU DIG IT!" one) were simply iconic to say the least, probably one of my favorite parts because even I felt something when listening to it.

    Soundtrack, again stuck right between the 70's and 80's as this movie was made in 1979....

    It feels like it was destined to be a video game as the characters just constantly run from one set piece to another to another..... there isn't really much of a plot and it's and extremely simple movie....

    However it's something I could only tell you to watch yourself..... I'd personally give it a 4/5 just because it's such an anomaly to me, but it's really only a decent movie....

    Saw Argo. 

    Those final 45 minutes had my heart thumping lol. Ben Affleck is leveling up.

    I saw "Hara Kiri" or what ever the movie is called, directed by the guy who did "13 Assassins."  It's bad,  I understand it is a remake,  and different than "13 Assassins," but I think the movie still sucked.  It was sappy, boring, and stupid.

    The movie forum I'm a member of is just about ready to unveil its homegrown Academy Awards for this year. At my suggestion, we're doing Lifetime Achievement awards for the first time. Also at my suggestion, we're doing video presentations of the awards this year (to be edited by me!), so I've gotten first peek at the results and I'm pleased as punch about the Lifetime Achievement winners. Anyone familiar with my tastes can probably make some educated guesses.

    I guess what I'm saying is that my lifelong plan to get Nicolas Cage formally recognized for an entire career of excellence is finally paying off.

    I'm joking about him getting a Lifetime Achievement award, but I legitimately feel that he enhances anything he's in, whether it's good or awful. He's a human absurdity, like a product of some insane person's imagination... but he's real.

    There are no bad Nicolas Cage performances. There are good ones and there are awesome ones. He never half-asses or phones it in.

    I assumed it would be Scorsese.

    I agree that he does give his all, but his all just doesn't really appeal to me. Maybe I just need to accept how batshit crazy he is going to be and work from there.

    @Rockbogart Explain why the movie I mentioned was anything more than what I explained? I really really would love to hear your defense on this piece of shit that hung on to the coat tails of the success of 13 Assassins. Just because it's a remake doesn't make it redeeming no matter how shit it is. Fuck you BTW.

    I haven't seen Hara Kiri, so I am not commenting on it, but saying the Takashi Miike is "riding on the coat tails of the success of 13 Assassin's" is an insane fucking comment. He's Takashi Miike! That's literally like saying Tarantino is riding on the coat tails of the success of Inglorious Basterds. He's got a long history of films before 13 Assassins including Ichi and Audition.

    this and hara kiri's vibe,atmosphere, tone, and philosophical commentary is completely different than 13 assassins. hara kiri is pure drama, and while takashi says 13 assassins is drama it definitely has a more actiony undertones.
