Speaking of Bad Movies...

Recommended Posts

I just saw a doozy!

 

Godzilla (2014)

 

It was bad... just plain bad. Really. It was bad. Did I mention that this movie was bad? Oh, and it was long, too. Long and bad, yes it was. :(

I loved the original.

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godzilla_%281954_film%29

"
In these days of flawless special effects, Godzilla and the city he destroys are equally crude. Godzilla at times looks uncannily like a man in a rubber suit, stomping on cardboard sets, as indeed he was, and did. Other scenes show him as a stuffed, awkward animatronic model. This was not state-of-the-art even at the time; King Kong (1933) was much more convincing. When Dr. Serizawa demonstrates the Oxygen Destroyer to his fiancee, Emiko
[
]
, the super weapon is somewhat anticlimactic. He drops a pill into a tank of tropical fish, the tank lights up, he shouts, "stand back!" the fiancée screams, and the fish go belly-up. Yeah, that'll stop Godzilla in his tracks.
"

Since its release, Godzilla has been regarded not only as one of the best giant monster films ever made but an important cinematic achievement.[26] The film was ranked #31 in Empire magazine's "The 100 Best Films Of World Cinema" in 2010.[27]

I love the first 2 Predator movies. The rest are OK but nothing to write home about; once you see those, don't much need to see them again. But the first 2, whole different ball park. Really enjoyed those two.

A lot of folks seemed to like Godzilla 2014. I could barely stay awake. It was just too long. They make you wait a long time to see Big G. Many scenes filmed in darkness; difficult to follow, etc.

 

Try it, though... you might like it. Everyone's different.

Speaking the Predator movies, don't forget to take a look at Predators (plural) - good movie! Also, the Predator vs Alien flicks weren't too bad either.

Many scenes filmed in darkness;

 

Because they wanted to cover up cheaply made sets or develop drama like CSI turning off the lights and exploring homes by flashlights with 3/4 dead batteries?

Mine neither. It was the cat that made me watch a second time an in all the follow ups I was always looking for the cat to appear again.

 

Ever noticed how many movies have cats in them. Like this favourite of mine,

 

Cat People

 

an the remake was very well done too.

Not that I was looking at Simone Simon or Nastassja Kinski. :yes:

that looks like it might be interesting.

reminds me a bit of "cat woman" - but cat woman was merely an ok film. while movies suspend reality, i cannot buy off on cat woman's i'm good sometimes and bad sometimes (and it is beyond my control.)

Actually, if you liked Predator, you might enjoy Aliens.

The premise of both involved an elite military unit, equipped with devastating firepower, sent by a Machiavellian corporation or government into a situation involving an extremely formidable "unhuman" foe...

 

Just action, no deeper meaning, no social commentary, relax... no thinking required.

 

IMHO:

Alien was a horror flick.

Aliens was action adventure.

I agree with Pete! ... well, Aliens was an action sci fi adventure with aliens. ;)

 

Yes, if you enjoyed Predator, you may well enjoy Aliens. I liked both a lot.
