    Saw The Count of Monte Cristo last night. Great movie, certainly not a direct adaptation (I've been reading the book for school summer reading), but still very good as a film. Everything about this film is exceptional, including the music! Time to go find out where I can get the soundtrack! Sadly, it's no longer in stock on Amazon.com, and is nonexistent in the iTunes store. sad


    it is indeed a great film, and a terrifc accompaning score. I'm so surprised to find out how out of print this release is shocked


    I know! There are only two copies on eBay! shocked

    That's typical, the more I hear music, the more I realize some of favorite parts are not on the CD

    - Lost 3: The opening cue is different in the final seconds, and totally shit from what I heard in the series


    Are you kidding me? The TV version is missing those MASSIVE drums! shocked

    Time (Shi Gan) - Kim Ki-Duk

    Korean, 2006 movie by famous director Kim Ki-Duk. I've watched so much crap recently that I needed to go back to something a lot more thought-provoking. I'm not really into Asian cinema, but having watched In the mood for love, Riding alone for thousands of miles (another gem) and Kitano's Zatoïchi lately, I should think about doing myself a favor and watch a lot more Asian movies. Time primarily deals with the potentially desastrous effects of plastic surgery. Brillant acting and a very subtle use of music. Very good.
  3. HANCOCK

    Well I must say it was all rather enjoyable for 1 hour, the comedy was all nicely delivered and there were some nice scenes which added depth to the Will Smith character, how much of a jerk Hancock was, you just felt for the guy, all that weight on his shoulders. But then the movie lost control, right after the plot changed. I liked the twist itself, didn't see it coming, but I hate what they did with it and how they resolved Hancock's transformation, it just didn't belong in the same movie. Comedy + drama: only rarely is it mixed to perfection, but in Hancock, no I didn't get it.

    The movie was far from horrible though...

    Kung Fu Panda

    I was scared for the mediocre trailer, but the movie is good.

    A lot of joked for kids (it's a kid movie anyway); but a smarter film you can guess and also a lot of action and stunning visuals. This panoramic asian landscapes, the color...

    Zimmer and Powell music fits and shines perfectly!!!!! Now I even like more this score.

    (I want oogsay ascend as heard in the movie, with this touch of piano..!)
  4. Kung Fu Panda yesterday !


    The best CGI DreamWorks so far !





    Today, Hancock !

    Swap the 4th word around with the 3rd, and now the 6th word with the 4th, and then the 7th with the 5th and you will have a grammatically correct statement.

    Watched two weather-related blockbusters over the weekend.

    Twister

    I saw this when it came out in the cinema and thought it was rubbish. But it was on tv, I had nothing to do, and I am a far mellower person today than in 1996, so I gave it a shot. Sadly, it's still rubbish, but way more rubbish than your typical silly blockbuster since there just doesn't seem to be any point to it at all. I must have missed it, but I really have no idea why that group of people went around chasing after tornadoes, nor why the other group of people (hilariously decked-out with far superior equipment and nicer hair cuts) were doing the same thing, and why they hated each other. 1/5

    The Day After Tomorrow

    This is a far better kind of rubbish. Highly enjoyable - easily Emmerich's most enjoyable film in fact. I rarely sit up and think "wow" at special effects any more, but the visuals in this are great. Daft ending spoils it a bit, but otherwise it's quite good for a silly summer film. 3/5

    Awesome.

    I on the other hand love it! I'm an absolute sucker for disaster movies (and you might argue that it literally was). I know they're silly, but I find them to be so much fun! Especially the score. lick

    I liked the bit where they're being chased by the frosty air....daft as fuck but very enjoyable.

    I'd have enjoyed Twister more if there had been more bovine vortex entertainment quota. cheesy

    Yes... I agree. Twister is almost completely total bullshit but there are people out there that DO chase twisters. The effects are 10 million times better then 90% of the crap that we have to swallow in films these days and the score goes above and beyond the material as well. Even the songs ROCK!

    One of my favorite musical moments in the movie is where Mancina adapts Van Halen's "Humans Being" song into the score. He plays the rhythm for a few minutes and lets it build and build until BLAM - the song kicks in with electric guitars, bass and drums kit. Great musical sequence. And the photography is dynamite. The first helicopter shot after the prologue with Mancina's theme playing away gives me goosebumps.

    I saw 'THE HAPPENING' by M Night...
    I thought it was bad bad bad!! I don't know what's going on but I think He needs to stop writing his own movies..I loved sixth sense, was amazed by The Village and Signs.. but the last couple hes done, namely, Lady in the Water, and The Happening are really bad. I thought the Casting was terrible and the acting even worse.. I not sure if is the actors fault or signs of bad direction..
    I hated the story..It was shallow and boring. I hated the cliche and token gore that was un-scary and un-shocking.. and I hated the script.

    ...

    Still cant wait for Dark Knight.. I hope I'm not getting too excited about it. punk
