Re: What was the last movie you saw?

Predators is a kinda-sorta follow-up to the 1987 film with Ah-nult. We open with mercenary Royce (Adrien Brody) in mid-air, parachuting to what proves to be a planet far from Earth. Soon after he lands, he finds himself in the company of several others--some from military backgrounds, some criminal...

Re: What was the last movie you saw?

My movie tonight was They Were Expendable . Often thought of today as a John Wayne film, its real star is Robert Montgomery. In the early days of World War 2 in the Pacific, Lt. Brickley (Montgomery) commands a squadron of PT Boats--small, fast wooden patrol boats--stationed in the Philippines; Lt. ...

Re: What was the last movie you saw?

As The Other Guys opens we see the ultimate pair of adrenaline-junkie cowboy cops, Highsmith and Danson (Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson), in a super-intense pursuit sequence that ends with a beyond-the-impossible shootout. The focus of the film, however, is on the "other guys," forensic accoun...

La Femme infidele/The Unfaithful Wife is a subtle, character-driven thriller from the great Claude Chabrol, centered on one of the oldest of plots, the love triangle. In this case, the triangle consists of a French insurance executive (Michel Bouquet), his wife (Stephane Audran) and her lover (Maur...

Re: What was the last movie you saw?

Zhong hua zhan shi/Magnificent Warriors is a lightweight but enjoyable film from early in Michelle Yeoh's career, back before she really became Michelle Yeoh (literally--she was billed as Michelle Khan in the subtitled credits). Fok Ming-Ming (Yeoh) is an adventurer of some sort in China in the 193...

Re: What was the last movie you saw?

Somehow I got several movies in a row in my Netflix queue which involved hit-men of some sort. Tonight I watched an excellent one called simply The Hit . Ten years ago Willie Parker (Terence Stamp) snitched on the crew who were involved in several robberies with him. Now one of them is out of prison...

Re: Name the Movie from the Quote

"I don't want to kill anyone. I don't like bullies; I don't care where they're from." That is from Captain America: The First Avenger Next: Call me when you've had enough. I can even let you keep a little of the money. If I was cuttin' deals, why wouldn't I go deal with this guy Chigurh? No no. No....

Re: Name the Movie from the Quote

A: Why do I need a piece of paper to tell me my name? B: Not you. Not you, my dear, but everyone else. We need paper and computers so we don't have to ask people their names or look them in the face. You have a good face. You look just like your father. And you walk like him, too. That is from Hann...
