well, I can now say that I truly have seen the worst movie ever made in all of human history, quite likely the worsst film that ever will be made in all of time. I know a lot of films make that claim, trust me, only THIS film can truly qualify as such. it is a film so terrible I will not even name it, as even looking it up on the IMDB database will probably cause someone to gouge their own eyes out, and i have no doubt how I missed it before, but this film was so terrible that apparently all of the advertisers (or sponsors) associated with the film forced the makers to blur out any reference to them that appeared in the film, such as t-shirts, drinks, etc. Not even one of those "so terrible it's kinda good" type movies, basically just something some idiot fished out of a toilet, put in a film canister, and decided to assault the world with unprovoked. I guess there's really no need to watch movies anymore, I've seen the best and the worst now.

I tend to not buy into the "hype." I did'nt see "the Matrix" until long after the fact, wound up wishing I'd never saw it to begin with. Once bitten, twice shy type of thing, I guess. Ain't the completely different world part the point, though? Earth no longer good enough, etc.? That's like a massive Canadee' invasion of upper north America proper, ain't it? no wonder you find it appealing ;-).
i admit the hype has been a bit much for me, that it is the "greatest movie ever". i don't agree, but it is worth seeing. i doubt it will win the oscar for best picture. well, truth be told, earth isn't really that great these days is it, not to get into a discussion on whether or not climate change is real, but if the earth were a person i bet she would have seen better days! i personally though didn't really identify with the point of the movie to be a dialogue on how we treat the earth, i know that was part of the point of it, but i thought that angle was a bit cheesy. i think we all get it. we suck and have damaged the planet. we don't need a 3-D movie to tell us that as we drive by clear cutting and landfills!

Well, now that's because I was 100% accurate. Duh! I wrote it, did I not?

I saw "Panic Room" again last night, featuring a 12 year old Kristin Stewart alongside Jodie Foster. Imagine as a child actor, working with a class act like Jodie Foster? From what I've heard about New Moon, it seems she didn't learn much about acting.

My wife said she's in a movie where she's frozen for most of it. It might have been her ideal role!

you know who never complains about that sort of thing, climate change and all? starving Africans. Now, I di want to see that new movie "Legion." Think it looks pretty good.

For what it's worth, Saviorself, I read a review that said, "If Dante had seen this film before writing The Divine Comedy, he'd have made a tenth level of Hell for lazy, unoriginal, just plain BAD movies and their film makers." Or something like that.
It said there was nothing original and was very cliche way too slow for what they were trying to achieve. But I haven't watched it, myself, that was only a review I read. Of course the reviewer also said turning a child into a homicidal maniac in film was akin to blasphemy and I have to disagree with that.

huh. After seeing the worst movie on earth I do kind of think Dante should have created a 10'th level of hell for that reason... now I think I'll skip "Legion." I don't think turning a child into a homicidal maniac is akin to blasphemy, though, kids kill all the time in real life. Still, one bad review is enough for me. Appreciate the heads up!

I saw the preview, i think it looks good as well. unfortunately, right now is the drought for good movies, so maybe i will catch up on some i missed like The Hurt Locker and Precious. It is true, the starving africans do not complain about climate change, i guess it is different going from very hot to very very hot out there mining for blood diamonds.

Precious was not a good movie in my opinion. I would not be opposed to procuring blood diamonds, though.

genevieve,

I don't particularly like going to the theater because of the
crowds, noise, and disrespectful movie goers that you sometimes
encounter at movie theaters.

Also, I tend to watch old movies and donít much go in for the
new movies, accept for horror films. Iím a horror film fan so I
will watch some of the new films in that genre.

For the most part, I would much rather enjoy a good movie in the comfort of my own home or at a friend's house. Some people even have big screen televisions and a great sound system that would rival any movie theater.

However, I can see how it might be fun to go to the movie theater occasionally.

I wish I was rich enough to have my own movie theater for just me and my friends and family to watch movies in :-)

There's a new one coming out sometime this month, Percy Jackson and the Olympians. It looks pretty good. My daughter read the book and said it was good.

That is fair, I don't know if you consider yourself a movie "buff", but most that I know tend to enjoy watching at home as it is a different appreciation of older films. it is more about the characters and story telling then the effects.

I have to admit though that I enjoy both! I tend however to go to more movies at the theater, it tends to be a bit of a social thing, to go out for dinner or drinks and a movie. As well, my home is not so large that I can set up for a deluxe home theater. I would love to, but it is not practical for me.

What I find funny is that now you can go to the theater to watch wrestling events, rent a theater for a video game party or even go to watch olympic events! that is insane to me!

I am interested to know, you love both old films and horror films. They are an interesting combination!

I saw an awesome documentary called "Conspiracy of Silence" that was originally set to air in 1994. it was quashed about a thousand ways a thousand times, but in light of that report released by Great Britain last year about all the abuse by the Catholic Church in Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England it's pretty interesting. I would'nt recommend watching it, though.

I guess so. The book came first. I haven't seen the movie yet.

that looks like a pretty cool movie, I'll say that. The special effects look like they'll be awesome, and I'm a sucker for anything that involves the ancient gods and such. I even liked the Three Stooges meet Hercules. Awesome flick.

I'm a sucker for kids movies. I saw previews for the new Alice in Wonderland movie and thought it looked pretty cool.
