Re: Ted (by Seth McFarlane)

It's a bit crude ofcourse, and sometimes crosses the line of 'tasteful' or 'respectful', but it's often also just very very funny. It used to be funny, but the quality of the show deteriorated to the point where it's simply un-watchable. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWfiIks3vQw&feature=related - ...

Re: Total Recall Remake

Underworld was a pile of boring and unmemorable poo, while Die Hard 4 has the honor of being one of the worst movies I had the displeasure of seeing.

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out

And anyone dismissing animation purely for the fact that it's animation, is a complete idiot ofcourse. So I am an idiot because I can't relate to most of the stuff that they release? I'm not dismissing animation because it's animation, I'm dismissing it because the core material does not interest m...

Didn't want to make a new thread so I'll just use this one:

Since Hung knows so much about Japanese cinema and all I thought maybe he could recognize the movie whose excerpts are used in this music video by Dead End: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjK-JZUdI-g

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out

Batman (1989) - a classic which still holds up to this day. Great performances by Keaton and Nicholson. 9/10 Batman Returns (1992) - a decent sequel but it could have been a lot better. I guess Burton was given a little too much creative freedom in this one, since there are quite some out of place ...

Re: What asian film/series have you just seen.. marks out of

Undefeatable (1993) - haven't seen many of Godfrey Ho movies, but this was the best one so far. Cheesy acting, horrible dialogue and actually bearable fighting scenes. The guy who played Stingray was hilarious. 4/10 Dragon Fight (1989) - good pacing, decent amount of action and Jet Li kicking ass. ...

You don't think it's going to be good? This and The Dark Knight Rises are the only films I'm bothered about this year. I didn't say that. While I'm looking forward to it, I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much. Let's call it cautious optimism. The movie sure has a lot of hype to live up to and ...
