tbh I really don't get how you can call a film bad just because it didn't scare you. Its worth reaches far beyond the scare factor. The pacing, the lighting, the balance between the medical and supernatural horrors and the priest's story, ...


The fucking Atmosphere! 100% agreed with all of this.

V for Vendetta is definitely one of the better comic book movies. I don't know or care how good of an adaptation it is of the source material because I haven't read it, but I really enjoyed the film.


Same here man.. Really liked it all the way through.

Scorsese's King Of Comedy is better than Raging Bull.

The Exorcist III has the best hospital scene.

Woof. Probably even worse than thinking V for Vendetta is good. That last battle sequence is literally one of the cheesiest and worst filmed sequences of all time.

I cannot imagine The Last Samurai being a good film. I love Tom Cruise and all, but that movie does not interest me in the least...

A western white guy ends up being the last samurai. That's pretty much all you need to know.

this may actually be popular, but i'm not sure:

role models is one of the best comedies of the past 12 years. i watched it again the other day, and it's fucking brilliant at being both hilarious and touching.

I would agree that Role Models is hilarious, but it can only be considered touching if you mean within the context of comedies.

Well, in a slight defense of the film on this account, Tom Cruise is not the last samurai, even according to the movie. There were samurai rebellions (the Satsuma Rebellion being the most prominent) and there were western white guys who were hired as military advisers to a reforming Japan. There were also western white guys who became enamered with Japanese society and began living traditional Japanese lives. There are many, many reasons to complain about the historical accuracy of the film. That's just not the best one.

I always assumed that "last samurai" referred to the whole of the rebel army.
