Newest Movie Thread

Posted 04 January 2008 - 02:56 PM

There's been a few of these out wondering the threads of the caffeine lounge. I am making this one to talk about the latest movies each week and get opinions on the ones to watch.

Topic of discussion this week: One Missed Call. This is a movie that I didn't see the preview of until I saw it show up at the theater this weekend. I checked around and found that it looks like a decent movie. Has anyone else got any opinions on the movie? It kinda looks like a final destination series spin off.

Run Lola Run was a better movie *edit* in my opinion *edit* than final destination. It was similar in the time aspect, but I liked the idea of how drastically things can change by one simple second.

I can't say that I am all that interested in "one missed call" because it just looks like another rip off of a few other thriller movies including final destination with a little bit of disturbia type of thrill in it.

In the spirit of my medieval ventures I am waiting for Jan 11th's "In the Name of the King: A Dungeons Seige Tale" which is another take on Lord of the Rings style movie making... but hell, it never goes out of style.

I especially like this paragraph from wikipedia:

Quote

Boll's movies have been critically panned. As of November 6, 2007, all three of Boll's video game adaptations appeared on the Internet Movie Database's Bottom 100 films list. In a review of Alone in the Dark, Rob Vaux states that the movie should make all other "bad" movie directors feel better in comparison: "It's okay," they'll tell themselves, "I didn't make Alone in the Dark." Another reviewer wrote that Alone in the Dark, was "so poorly built, so horribly acted and so sloppily stitched together that it's not even at the straight-to-DVD level."

Well thanks for the warning. They made a fantastic trailer and acquired some relatively decent known actors to play the parts. So I am hoping it get some good reviews and people like it. It will get me more excited to go see it.

Thanks for all the suggestions for this weeks line up of movies. One Missed Call does look like a final destination rip off, so I'll wait for the DVD to see it.
The national treasure movie looked good, and I think I'll be waiting for the DVD on that one as well.

I think that this thread and it's series could be one that we keep alive on the weekends especially with all the new movies coming out, and this summer when the screen starts to heat up as the movies fly out of hollywood.

the new national treasure was a good movie, in my opinion though the first one was better. they stretched the truth a little too far on this one

So, I was driving and heard a radio ad for this. It made me want to plow into on-coming traffic at high speeds.

No go for me.
