We have a video game thread, a random video thread, and i thought we had a movie thread, but i searched, and could not find one. So I figured I would start one for members to post movie recommendations, reviews of movies that are out, or just movies they thoroughly enjoyed or despised.

I will start with a movie I despised: Transformers 2. This was just bad all around. The acting was bad, the jokes were terrible, and it was long. There were, however, two bright spots to the movie. The first is obvious, and her name is Megan Fox. The second though, which was a great source of amusement for both my brother and me, was the satellite robot (i forget his name) had the same voice as Dr Claw from the Inspector Gadget cartoon!

Jetfire. Soundwave


I grew up watching Transformer (G1, G2, Beast Wars, Armada), and both movies pissed me off.

Shia Labeouf should not be allowed near a camera. Ever.

Fox is overrated. She's a butterface for one, and can't act to save her life.

Both movies were all around terrible.

I think of Megan Fox more as a two face than a butterface. Either way, completely out of my league.

But yeah, both movies sucked, but especially the second one. Really, really terrible. I think i'm stupider for having watched it.

Now Gran Turino is probably my favourite movie ever. Not one thing I would change.

I find the Hmong actors to have been subpar. But other than that, phenomenal movie. Clint was great, and he is a first class director.

An underrated movie I love, that has quite a cult following is one I quoted on another thread the other day, called Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. It stars Robert Downey Jr, Val Kilmer and Michelle Monaghan. It's hilarious, and really well acted and directed. RDJ is the man.

I just recently saw Crash with Sandra Bullock and Don Cheadle. Absolutely fantastic.

I enjoyed Transformers (the first one). I've got it in HD and on my 60" HDTV and at full volume... it was pretty damn amazing.

Harry Potter 6 was (for me) better than 5. But not as good as 3 or 4. If you are a fan you've got to see it in the theatre, and soon, before they move it over to one of the smaller screens.

That;s weird, coz the 6th book was easily the best of the 7. I don't know how they could screw it even with modifed story. Coz really, Harry Potter is about Harry, Voldemort and Snape. The Half Blood prince focuses on Voldemort and Snape, so it should be the deepest of the movies.

Personally, this movie was where I really missed Richard Harris. The chemistry between the two couples (Ron/Hermione and Harry/Ginny) just didn't feel right. The kid playing the young Tom Riddell was nicely creepy, and Tom Felton (Draco) looked like he was in his 30s -- intentionally, I thing, given the weight of his "assignment".

Anyhow, I don't want to "crap" all over this movie. Like I said, it was better (IMO) than the previous one, but my favorites are still 1, 4 and 3 (in that order).
