    Rewatched Falling Down. I really like this movie. I like it so much, as a kid, I borrowed it from the library, kept it, and ended up paying a "library fine" of 400 krones, which back in the 90s was, well, still 400 krones. About 45 bucks.
    Worth it

    Watched Che pt 1 and 2 recently. This is the kind of movie where you know the ending, so... not a huge lot to say.
    It makes me think though: One group of crybabies whined and cried that it depicted Che as too heroic, too humane, and too just. The other group cried and whined and sobbed that it depocted Che as too militaristic, too cold, too cynical.

    Exactly. If anything, the movie would be hella edgy and dark. But srsly, Tom Hardy ruled the shit out of The Revenant. Best side role? Is he even nominated?

    Hehe, I've once kept Fallout 2 for over a year from the local library. Had to pay a hefty fine for that...

    Deadpool, you should stop reading and go see it now. It's over the top and totally conveys the Deadpool sense of humor from the comics.

    Re-watching "Kung Fu Hustle", I tend to forget this movie although it is far from forgettable. I quite like it, and it's one of few recent-ish movies I actually saw in cinema when it was new

    Very slapsticky though, for those who like that.

    Yesterday they showed Charlie's Angels + Full Throttle

    I am beginning to recover. Someone should make an entire movie of Cameron Diaz just dancing and giggling, and use it as psychological torture

    Watched Ex Machina, British sci-fi flick from 2015. Very good one, slow-paced movie with long and steady shots, great music, and interesting plot focused on characters' psychology with some twists. Nothing original though, reminded me of some novels written by I. Asimov, or some old movies as Android for instance. Worth of your time anyway.

    The thing I liked most about Ex Machina was music and great locations for filming. Nice film overall, but nothing special.

    I just realized how strongly was Fallout influenced by Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove.
    Admittedly, it was Tim Cain who had a dream about large settlements placed deep underground, and that was the seed for whole Fallout universe, as explained by R. S. Campbell here:
    http://www.archive.nma-fallout.com/article.php?id=60785
    I think that Tim had this idea after watching Dr. Strangelove, because there's not only the dwelling space created in deep mining caverns mentioned in this movie, but also all the other goodies - all pervading fear of nuclear armageddon induced by the cold war, dark humor, crazy ideas as precious bodily fluids being poisoned by mass fluorization project (referenced in Fallout Bible and killap's RP too), or some very peculiar characters with insane, racist, and elitist ideals; such as Dr. Strangelove himself - „Mein Fuhrer, I can walk!” :-)

    It was ok, sort of old fashioned. I liked the slower pacing and more 'mature' style. Maybe partly because I've read a little about the events it depicted. The real events are more dramatic then what the movie showed. It's not bad but maybe not Spielberg's best one. I'm a fan of JFK too, probably Oliver Stone's best movie.

    Guys, watch Zootopia. Even if you are an anti animation buffoon you should see it. It's really good.

    Yeah, I thought about watching it, maybe today? I will see. I mean Cinema has really started to become fucking expensive!.
    But seriously, everyone is praising it to heaven. You can be sure that it will be exploited like crazy.

    I was rather annoyed by what Deadpool's success has set off, but it was to be expected. You know the drill. Future superhero movies will now try to emulate it by having more violence, not realising that the R-rating is not what made it succeed. It was a fresh and unique take, but don't expect companies to understand that. The movie itself was great.

    Mad Max Fury Road. It was pretty good I guess. The original Mad Max movies' charm was partly on the fact that it was all 'real', as in no CGI. All the stunts etc. were 'real' and had an air of danger about them. That changed with this newest addition, lots of CGI but I guess quite a few won't mind. Of course very 'Fallout' - vibe about the movie. Also quite sad and tragic storyline, not going to ruin the ending but really not a very cheerful movie.

    About 90% of Fury Road was practical effects too. Not counting the dust storm, remaining CGI was used just to polish the real stunts and add another scene or two.

    Hmm, interesting. Maybe it just looked more polished then the previous ones giving it a more 'cleaner' and hence 'CGI' look. I don't know. Well anyway. Not a bad movie though.

    Yeah CGI was really only used for the storm scene and to hide safety equipment. All the cars, fire, explosions, stunts, etc. were real

    Even the Doof Rider's Flamethower/Guitar was an actual Flamethrower Guitar that actually worked.

    I guess I don't have a good eye when it comes to CGI.

    Another movie I saw recently was The Revenant. It was also ok. I'd heard of the legend of Hugh Glass and I guess they did it well. Nice locations in Canada and Argentina I guess. I have an interest in Native Americans so it was good to see a movie that dealt partly with them. Good camerawork and just an 'authentic' looking movie. They claimed they didn't use CGI (or at least didn't use green screen) but the buffalo heard and the wolves looked pretty CGI to me.

    Nah, they used CGI there a plenty for animals and stuff.

    Bear and her cubs, buffalo, wolves, the scene where he falls with the horse... most of it is CGI combined with practical effects.

    Still, it was a largely "natural" film. It used natural lighting throughout most of the film, if not all of it.
