Really would like to see Statham in another Guy Ritchie gangster flick. He's always a good fit.

Star studded and tasteless? It should have made ten times that much.

Is Movie 43 really that bad?  I was thinking about seeing it tonight.

That was generally always the case, but this January? YOWZA.

It's getting absolutely pummeled by critics.

Sight unseen, I still refuse to believe that it's the worst movie ever made. I have my hunches.

It's pretty friggin' bad, but I laughed in places.  Places spotted quite a fair distance from each other, but there are laughs.

It's being compared to Kentucky Fried Movie because it's a series of vignettes but that alone doesn't make it KFM. Besides, the guys behind that and "Airplane!" made a lot of those " ____ Movie" movies. So I think they may have lost their mojo. I'm sure as hell not taking a girl to see it. I saw The Hobbit but not in 48fps. I still want to see what that looks like even though the movie itself was boring as fark. But I have tomorrow off so I should see something. farking January.

Finally got around to seeing Silver Linings Playbook. Really enjoyed it, though it does seem to be over-nominated. I actually think the best part of that movie was Bradley Cooper, and I mean that as a legitimate complement, since Jennifer Lawrence and DeNiro were both also great.

True enough.


Mugato: Besides, the guys behind that and "Airplane!" made a lot of those " ____ Movie" movies. So I think they may have lost their mojo.


That's a hell of a way to lose one's way. I mean, yeah, the box office bonanzas are there, but... at what costs?


Mugato: I'm sure as hell not taking a girl to see it.


*snert*

Given all the bad buzz surrounding it, I think that's a WISE decision.


Mugato: I saw The Hobbit but not in 48fps. I still want to see what that looks like even though the movie itself was boring as fark. But I have tomorrow off so I should see something. farking January.


Yeah, I still gotta get around to seeing that in 48fps, too.

Well, whatever you see, I hope you enjoy it!

That's one I've been meaning to see as well.

That's the general consensus I've heard about it, that the performances are great but the movie itself is overrated and overnominated to the moon.

Here's a basic rule - if your character doesn't have a name, you don't deserve a nominate. I'm looking at you, Jackie Weaver.

Save yourself the $10 on Movie 43 and watch The Kentucky Fried Movie or Amazon Women on the Moon instead.

I'll say this- for a rom-com (which is all the movie really ends up being), it's pretty damn good.

Regarding the 48 FPS in the Hobbit, I noticed something weird. The first few minutes are a bridge between the Hobbit and LOTR, with Bilbo being visited by Frodo. Nothing of note happens and it lasts just a little longer than you'd really like (I don't know a single person who thought the beginning was paced well). But during that unnecessarily long period of fanservice, you get completely used to the weirdness of 48FPS. Instead of everything looking like its sped up during an important scene, you acclimate during a period of nothingness. The original feelings of 'maybe this is terrible' go away after you've spent a few minutes watching nothing happen. And then when the movie finally really starts, instead of wondering how bad this will be you can take in just how awesome it actually is.

Incorrigible Astronaut: I'll say this- for a rom-com (which is all the movie really ends up being), it's pretty damn good.


Basically. It really depends on how you look at it. If you see the film as a rom-com, its pretty great but kind of uncomfortable. If you see it as a drama about mental illness and family disfunction, it's good and has some funny moments but is nothing groundbreaking.

Only for the last 20 years. If so asked, I could provide a exhaustive compilation of examples of Januarys, Februarys and Marchs from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s where that was most definitely not the case.

Jason Statham was born 20 years too late. He'd have fit in just fine in the 90's and sat alongside the other action stars of the decade. His kind of movie doesn't go over the way it used to.

Cast him as the villain in the next Bond flic (maybe do a remake of Goldfinger, with Statham as Auric Goldfinger played straight instead of comic heavy (with Kate Winslet as Pussy Galore and Ving Rhaymes as Oddjob).

Jason Statham has only made one movie.... It's really, really long but broken up into a half dozen two hours chunks which have been steadily released over the past decade or so.

Dunno. Crank 1&2 is a bit out of what he normally does, and one of his best roles since Snatch.

Yes, but at least you can watch it. Like Rocky Horror, it's so freaking terrible it can be laugh out loud funny. Movie 43, I'm thinking not.
 
2013-01-27 03:12:59 PM
From the trailers I would not have guessed this was going to be such a blockbuster.
 
2013-01-27 03:17:37 PM
No, no, no. Don't listen to the critics. They are nuts!! Movie 43 was hilarious. Please see it for your self and laugh your a$$ off.
 
2013-01-27 03:19:43 PM
I'm floored that H&G didn't just sink. Normally when you get the full court press on advertising for months before release, it's because the film itself is a festering pile of rancid shiat.

Heh, Plan 9 from Outer Space is inept, but it's not out-and-out unwatchable.

See, that's the thing. Plan 9 doesn't really cause much pain. There are others out there, however, that *do* cause pain and are utterly repellent.

Crank 2 is the bastard child of Commando and Evil Dead 2, and THAT'S what makes it awesome.

On Rotten Tomatoes, Hansel and Gretel is at 15%, Movie 43 is at 5% (it was advertised on YouPorn, what do you expect?) and Parker is at 37%.

These movies pretty much such, so watch at your own risk. Time and time again I hear people say "I can't believe how bad that movie was", Check around first, people!

The fight scene that turned into kaiju was wonderful, as was the reveal of what happened to the villain of the first movie.

Years ago, Mrs. Xerox purchased "Plan 9 from Outer Space" on VHS. I tried my best to watch it. Even consuming a six-pack of beer while I watched that movie didn't help.

I cannot name the best movie that I have ever seen. However, "Plan 9 from Outer Space" is, without a doubt, the worst.

Movie 43 was bad. Really only two funny skits. Two more may have been funny if commercials didn't give away their jokes.

Also, you'll feel cheated when you watch fight scenes from now on. The Goblin fight/escape will spoil you.

I'll probably still see Parker, since I really enjoy the books. Then I can go home and watch the director's cut of Payback, and console myself that at least one movie came close to getting one of the books right.
