OT- Mgo movie advice: The Raid Redemption
It's probably the best violence I've seen on film since Man on Fire (which is currently on HBOGO if you want to re-watch it.) Hopefully, this will help some of you with your movie selections in the coming weeks. EDIT- The Scott Glenn version of Man on Fire is on HBOGO, the Denzel version which is much more intense and violent is not. /Sad panda
I recently watched Humboldt County and Brothers Bloom. Both of which had good, but somewhat mixed reviews. I really liked both.
I'll have to see about checking out Raid Redemption, although I don't usually go for the heavy action flicks.
Prior to baseball and the spring game.
This movie is a visual onslaught of violence so if that is not your thing, it is probably not the best selection.
Last night my roommate showed me the trailer and instantly I could not wait to see it. Looks like my type of movie!
I am usually not a huge action movie guy, unless it's completely mindless and I can mock it (ie Steven Seagal movies), but from the trailer it looks pretty good.
The trailer for this movie gets me very excited, as does the music. Mike Shinoda, a member of Linkin Park, did the soundtrack/film score, and i love his style of music. Sad thing is that the movie only had a limited release this past weekend. Hopefully it opens up to a larger audience and I can see it here in Ann Arbor.
EDIT: Apologies for not embedding, but this is an example of the type of music I hope the movie has, and will have, based on what I've read.
I felt the music was more of an after thought to the movie and only was noticeable a couple times.
That was awesome.
I watched the Muppet movie this past weekend, greatest two hours of my life.
My wife dragged me to see Hunger Games this past weekend. I was quite amazed at how there didn't seem to be a single original idea in the entire film. It was like a mash-up of Running Man, reality TV, Romeo & Juliet, some Margaret Atwood, Harry Potter, and Disney's Mulan. Mildly entertaining though.
that is all.
