The Last Movie You Watched? ver.2.0

(tomas) #584

I also prefer Alien over Aliens. And I also prefer Alien 3 over Aliens and Alien. Hell, I prefer Alien Resurrection over Aliens. And you know what, I even prefer Prometheus over Aliens. But I don’t prefer Alien Covenant over any of these movies, because it just wasn’t very good.

Watched the interesting Escalation (1968) by Roberto Faenza… weird flick


The Terminator is a top 10 film for me. Oh and fuck the shitty 5.1 sound mix. The gunshots sound like Pringles cans.

(The Man With a Name) #587

It’s a such a shame so many people are watching it for the first time with that dreadful remix. Many people have even told me they prefer it. :astonished: I grew up watching it on VHS, so I’ll never get used to the new sound effects. I’m glad Image Entertainment released it on DVD before MGM butchered it.

I got the nicely packaged Forgotten Film release for Christmas so will probably also take it for a spin before long.


Yep, I grew up watching the VHS and was horrified when I popped in the DVD and heard the T800’s magnum sound. What the fuck is that?? It sounds like a millepede blinking.

Luckily I grabbed a region 1 special edition with the mono option. I heard the French DVD has the mono track too.


Alien Covenant - Pretty okay
Prometheus - Ugh

The Grey, 2011… I don’t get it. I guess the film’s message is don’t leave the filed flight-path of the jetliner you were riding in. 2-out-of-10.

A very enjoyable Marvel piece, I’d say something alongside Fifth Element and Guardians of Galaxy, really different from the two predecessors and better. Feels actually like a scifi sitcom, there’s so much humour in, but done with 180 mil budget. And since the main baddie was Hela I hoped she’ll prevail in the end…
