The Last Movie You Watched?

[quote=“I love you M.E. Kay, post:6229, topic:1923”]Directed by the man behind the classic Maple Syrup Porno Deux femmes en or! ;D
Weird!

And it has to be the only Canadian western I know of ; notable in a way, I guess.[/quote]

I’ll check that porno thing tomorrow (it’s past 1 PM here)

As far as Canadian westerns are concerned, I recommend THE GREY FOX (1981)

Looks good, I’ll have to add that to my must-watch list. As for Deux femmes en or, it has a few things going on for it, but it’s no Valérie (the first French Canadian soft-core) which isn’t exactly a great film, but definitively better. And it has a killer soundtrack : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIBSDEFNJXs

Found this boring to the extreme.

Back with the spoof discussion, I personally like all three of the Naked Gun movies. The third one’s weaker but I think the first two are just as good. And the good thing about the naked gun is that it mostly spoofs a whole genre rather than a specific movie so it doesn’t get as dated as many others. It doesn’t rely too much on spoofing certain famous scenes except a couple of times. And the cast is brilliant. I never saw the series though, I should do it sometime.

Police Squad (the series) was the best of the lot in my opinion. But then it was the first. The movies were developed from the series.

[size=12pt]The Man from Nowhere [/size] (Ajeossi – 2010, Jeong-Beom Lee)

Not the movie from the brothers, but a Korean action movie from last year, that was immensely successful on the home market. It made a star out of young actor Bin Won. He plays a taciturn young man who never smiles and works in a pawnshop. His only contact with the outside world is a little girl who’s mother is a drug addict. When the mother steals a load of drugs from a dealer, he accidently gets in possession of the drugs. Mother and daughter are kidnapped and he can only get them back by doing a job for the local kingpin. He does, but the kingpin doesn’t keep his word.

And then we discover that this young man is a secret agent, trained in the art of killing with every possible weapons, including his bare hands …

There are some similarities to Jee-Woon Kim’s A Bittersweet Life (and Taxi Driver): the protagonist is a cornered loner who unleashes all his devils to clean up the city. A thinking man’s action movie. Veers from melodrama to violent action and back, and probably counts a couple of plot twists (and improbabilities) too many, but otherwise great cinema, with a fascinating build-up: the first killings are off-stage, the next seen on security cameras, then a few bones are broken, and only near the end you get the full bloody glory. I think many people here will love this movie.

7,5 (out of 10)

Here’s the trailer:

The problem with spoofs is that the films that they are making fun of are normally dated themselves, so they “inherit” if you will, these dated elements which mean they don’t stand up so well in the decades since their release. There are exceptions of course, and some spoofs like Young Frankenstein (my favourite) are just simply great.

Duck Soup and It’s a Gift are masterpieces of comedy but I do not think they were conceived as spoofs or intended as such.

Yeah that’s why I like “This is Spinal Tap”, its a spoof of an all concept or life style

I recommend this subtle western also.

[quote=“scherpschutter, post:6235, topic:1923”][size=12pt]The Man from Nowhere [/size] (Ajeossi – 2010, Jeong-Beom Lee)[/quote]Great stuff, I watched it last week (or was it the week before?)

My Gun is Quick. Fun B Noir loaded with bad acting, great lines and a few strange characters. Definitely reminiscent of Kiss Me Deadly although not nearly as good. I think it would have been way better if Ralph Meeker played Mike Hammer. 3/5

Watched the first episode of “The Nation’s Health”, good so far and each of the four episodes are roughly an hour and a half.

Just finished watching this one. Set in the good old days in the south, and what can happen in a smalltown and how the law actcs. Better than average low budget film from the 70"s, slow moving a bit then picks up steam in the action and sex scenes. Good enough for me.

Yeah Yodlaf, that’s where i got it from too! I bought it used in great shape. I had heard about this movie that’s why i got it. The reviews on imdb were all good. The only thing about the disc is, it has no extras, not even the trailer.
But that’s ok, i didn’t mind.

ps, Geoffrey Lewis is a hoot in this!

Love it. It’s loaded with great scenes. Even though the ocean is on the wrong side of LA. Robert Bray is solid, or the ‘second best’ Hammer, behind Meeker. It doesn’t really matter after a few minutes in… I like the non-dialogue sections of the script. Whereas Spillane as Hammer, in The Girl Hunters is a non-stop chatterbox. MGIQ has great cars too, like Kiss Me Deadly, and great action. There really isn’t a weak spot in MGIQ… it’d be all about ditching the cops and doing whatever that chick wanted.

Nid de Guêpes, 2002… The (Wasp) Nest. Explosive violence on a Extreme Prejudice/Wild Bunch scale. Virtually non-stop action. Even in the beginning, Pascual Greggory is watching a TV-doc about wasps before grabbing his gun (and violin) and heading out… As Samy Naceri and Benoit Majimel are whistling the ‘Magnificent Seven-theme’ on the van-ride to the same place. Meanwhile, Albania’s top mobster is being escorted through Strasbourg by an elite French security-vanguard, as the mobster’s private army closes in… If you can overlook (and director/writer, Florent Siri makes it easy to) the coincidences that brings all the characters to the same industrial-park, this film is rewardingly spectacular. Absolute maximum re-watchability.

I am watching Sidney Lumet’s classic first film, 12 Angry Men. The ensamble acting is just simply fantastic - Lee J. Cobb is great but then everyone else is. The cinematography by Boris Kaufman really drives hoime the sweaty claustrophbia of the room. I would like to get hold of the Criterion Edition and compare it to the original teleplay the film is based on that is included on there.

I watched this one recently myself and I could not agree more it’s a fantastic piece of film making.
