as much as everyone hates it...Krull, haven't seen it in a while, but I remember liking it a lot, the soundtrack as well....oh!, and Flash Gordon, the scene where the winged ones attack the ship...but more than that was the music during the scene..the synth part...that to me was great as a kid.

I really enjoyed The Fifth Element, dunno why everyone seems to hate it so much. Yeah, it's corny as hell in places, but very few sci-fi films aren't.....


Oh, and I think Armageddon is great too

Oh God, where to begin?

In no particular order: The Beastmaster, Waterworld, The Postman, Deuce Bigalow, The Last Starfighter, Kiss of the Dragon, Megiddo: Omega Code 2, On Deadly Ground, I Come In Peace, Gargoyles, Streets of Fire, Leviathan, Howling 2, Deep Rising, Reign of Fire, Freddy vs Jason, The Ninth Gate, The Golden Child, Revenge of the Ninja, Species 2, Split Second, and many, many more... Some too heinous to ever be mentioned to another living soul.

I'd have to say Serendipity.

It's total chick-flick crap, but it's got Piven and Cusack together in a x-mas movie. That rocks.

Pivens speech on the plane at the end will get you misty.

Oh and Kate Beckinsale has never looked hotter than she did in this movie.

Don't know if I'm actually embarrassed, but here goes:

My Favourite Year - Peter O'Toole is gold! "I'm not an actor, I'm a movie star!" So is Joe Bologna! "No tongue on show day! Tongue: Death!" "What's that smell? Oh, its your monologue!" ...And so many other quotables. Just love it.

Wargames - "Hell, I'd pisson a sparkplug if I thought it'd help"

Meteor - Karl Malden shouts every line!

Tron - "Greetings programs!" "Now THAT is a big door!"

Star Trek II - "There is an old Klingon proverb...."

The Woman in Red - Gene Wilder is just way too funny. And Kelly LeBrock - va Voom! I've always wanted someone to do the blind guy routine, just to cheer me up.

The Hand - Michael Caine and a Killer Hand! Directed By Oliver Stone!! What more do you need?

Sweet Liberty - more Michael Caine. And Alan Alda too!

There's just too many more to mention. Maybe I'll post again later

Monorail, My Favorite Year is a GREAT comedy! Why the hell would you be ashamed of loving that one? Endlessly quotable.

"Am I from Minsk or Pinsk? So, did you shtup her?"

"Go ahead and lash me you swine! You'll not loosen my tongue!"

Modern Problems, of course that's probably due to the fact that they ran it and Empire Strikes back a gazillion times a day back when HBO and Cinemax first started.

Critters is also a good one. You just gotta love the monstrous Critter deathball running people over towards the end.

Canniball Holocaust. I just get off on those killings and mutilations so much.

The Thumbsucking scene in Texas Chainsaw Massacre gets me off all the time.

I also get real turned on at the Tree Rape scene in The Evil Dead.

I've always been a big Alien 3-head. Everyone hates that one, and I admit that it has some serious script and character problems... but I think the key is to watch the movie with a mind toward what it could've been as opposed to what it is, errr, exactly. That is, you should bear in mind that had Vincent Ward been given the project to run with - or had David Fincher been given the same - the thing could've bloody well been a masterpiece to top the first two movies and then some. As is, I still get caught up in the bottomless nihilism, the pseudo-religion, the heady, existential, Passion of Joan of Arc-by-way-of-MTV ballsiness of the thing. It's a good example of a movie with talent to spare (so many great actors, a fucking brilliant director) with, errr, in WH Macy's words, nowhere to put it. Parts of the film still, I find, really work, and the parts that don't we can blame meddling producers for. Anyone agree, disagree?

This is my first post to the Zone ever, by the way. Please be kind. Thanx!


Ya Man. First of all, welcome aboard the Starship Enterprise and The Phantom Zone. This here, is my girl, Supergirl. Yes, yes, it's nice to meet her too, but DON'T TOUCH HER!!

Anyway. Alien 3. Fucking intruiging. The way it seemed so ahead of it's time, and now more suited to the darkness that ironically films like Seven have made fashionable these days.

I mean when I first heard how this film begins I was like WTF!?!?!?! But you gotta consider that this is what HORROR is! I loved the first 40 minutes of that film, despite how sickened I was about killing off those characters.

The rest of the film is a bit shite, considering they spent all that time to discover what the audience already knew. 'Course there was a fucking Alien.

Although there were character problems, I did like the way that many of the characters were illustrated. Without morals, evil bastards or complete Struggling Background Artists opr idiots - that showed real humanity in dealing ith the beast. My favourite character was the one that survived. Best performance of the prisoners, next to Charles Dance. Whatever happened to that guy after he got taken home?

Charles Dance going out so suddenly when you thought he would give hope was cool too.


What project was Vincent Ward and Fincher originally gonna do then, that would have been better than the first 2? Gotta hear about this.

When I first saw the closing credits come up on screen on my first viewing, I said "What a fucking shit film!".

Now I don't mind so much, but then again with films that 'grow' on you, you gotta consider that with repeated viewings on 'TV' itself, you're criticisms are less harsh - as you're paying a different attention to it, than at the pictures.

Why do you think I like Jerry Maguire now?

Tell me more about Alien 3 anyway. I think I or someone else mentioned this in the Underrated Movies thread that I made up.

My very own Star Trek: The Motion Picture's up there too you know?

Dracula 2000 -- can't beat a pretty-faced Drac with a dash of religious backstory and a hint of incest... and did I mention Jeri Ryan's cleavage?

Timeline -- totally botched version of a crap book but there is something about a time-traveling archeologist hero with one ear that gets to me.

Lara Croft:Tomb Raider 2 - The Cradle of Life -- silly, over the top, excessive and those are its good points but ya' gotta' love a good/bad guy that cuts a deal with Croft then says "Does that make me Faust or the devil?"

At least it is better than Dracula 3000, which isn't its sequel,but wants you to think it is, which features a sem-retarded alien Dracula running very fast around a spaceship chasing 8th rate rappers...

I'm eager to see this one again. I remember loving the ending, with the static shot of the car slowly sinking into the swamp at the end.

Am a big fan of Chris Doyle also as a cinematographer, especially when he's working on a Wong Kar-Wai film, so when he teams up with Gus Van Sant you know its gonna be at least a good looking film. That tracking shot at the opening which starts off of the apartment block and goes on to move into the room window is great. When I see it again, I'll be eager to spot more. Can't be any worse than the original, which it has to said is dating and lacks much of the charm Hitchcock normally delivers.

I'm probably going to be shunned forever...but i thought "Josie and the Pussycats" was a phenomenally funny movie. Allan Cumming was brilliant...and the whole plot of subliminal messaging, with the movie being exactly that...was damn fuckin funny. And the girls were cute to boot.

"Holy shit there's a skunk on her head! Oh, wait. That's your hair. Still, that's messed up." Classic.

And if anyone can tell me they didn't laugh at the crew of DuJour and their hit, "Back Door Lover" has no soul. That's funny.

Have you seen Jon Favreau's Made? Doyle was the DP on that too.

Agreed. It was digital though, the only way you can pull it off without dissolves, like the first one did. This was probably the only improvement upon the original, but nevertheless, both films have a special place in my heart.

Definitely an underrated movie, especially if you go into it not expecting much. Walken is quirky gold, as usual, and The Rock and Sean William Scott have pretty good chemistry.

Anyway. Alien 3. Fucking intruiging. The way it seemed so ahead of it's time, and now more suited to the darkness that ironically films like Seven have made fashionable these days.

I'm with you guys on this one, but I never really got an explanation on why this film is so reviled. I quite enjoyed it, and find that it was a solid effort. I personally didn't get bludgeoned by the monk and Joan of Arc themes of it, and honestly I don't think we should be ashamed to like Alien 3!

One movie I am ashamed to like though, is Alien Resurrection.
