I saw Madagascar 2 from DVD. I see mainly animated kiddy movies as I have no say what I can watch...I´ve seen them all. Madagascar´s are quite funny because it´s much more talk and joke-oriented than other action-based animations.
Gotta say something about Wall Street 2, if you guys havent seen it yet, or even if you have and haven't noticed it. Saw it in the theatre when it came out, but just netflixed it and watched it again...and again, just to get all the details. ;D
There's a shot at the start of the movie, it's just bugging the shit out of me! when the opening credits are almost finished and Shia LaBeouf's character is pulling into his parking spot and the camera makes it's way into the air and pans around 360° all the way up and is looking right into the mirrored window and you don't see any camera!! I think it's the coolest thing I've ever seen in a movie! Well, I dunno, but right now it is I suspose. It's just freaking bugging me because I can't figure out how they did it. If you guys see it just keep an eye out for that part.
Overall, I like the movie, kinda soft, but it has it's moments. It's the best thing Stone has done in years, which isn't saying much. Shia LaBeouf, I like em, kids a good actor. Josh Brolin, he's great too. Frank Langella, very good. Michael Douglas man, he's the best, you know, but the first Wall Street kinda set the bar out of reach to where he'll never be able to top that performance. The moments leading up to his downfall in that movie, I mean, c'mon, how intense is that??? When he screams into the phone, "YOU TAKE IT UP THE ASS!!! YOU ****IN' SCUMBAG COCKSUCKER!!! Everytime right after that moment I'm makin' like I got a pistol in my hand, squeezin rounds off into the air, and hollerin iyyyyy yi yi yi yi yi yi yi, like a liquored up Mexican celebrating New Years Eve. ;D
Just wish Oliver would make movies like he used to tho.
I just recently saw You Don't Know Jack as well. Pretty good movie, Al Pacino; John Goodman; and Susan Sarandon in one is great. I'm with with the Doc - live and let die.
I also saw The Other Guys recently, at first it was fairly boring and not very funny but it got somewhat funny as it progressed. A couple parts had me thanks to Will Ferrell turn it up a notch. Plus it has a good message and points the naughty finger at the global corps and the US Federal Reserve.
I watched Christiane F. - Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo a week ago, and I can honestly say I've never seen anything like it, and it's hardly stopped haunting me all week. Found this teaser for it which I think sums things up pretty well:
I'd thoroughly reccomend it for anybody who's into dark, affecting films.
