I think with D-10, since I assume they'll make one, the writers should try to purposefully lack the magic of D-9 and instead focus on making D-10 have magic of its own.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

The Matrix comparison is a really good one. Hopefully, if they do decide to make a D-10, they'll actually do it right instead of butchering the franchise the way Hollywood did with The Matrix.

Oh, and El D, it's because he spelled out "spoiler" in the tags instead of using "sp."

Inglorious Bastards was awesome. Definitely my favourite movie of the year so far, and it's good to be satisfied after The Hangover and Star Trek let me down.

Christoph Waltz was outstanding as others have mentioned. I really enjoyed the long dialogue. The opening scene and the bar scene were great

Damn...all this D-9 sequel talk, especially given DiG's spoiler tagged lingering question, is really getting me jacked for a potential D-10! My only caveat is great starts like this can ruined quickly. I reference it often but Blade 3 anybody?

Also, is there any way to indicate the movie you're referencing when doing the spoiler tags? I almost clicked on a Basterds spoiler by mistake!

Now, back to watching Trainspotting for 80,000th time... :D

I wasn't really looking foward to see D-9, but some friends who loved sci-fi Drag-me with them to watch.

At end they hated the movie, and I loved.

it was great.

Just saw Inglourious Basterds for the second time and now I can safely say that it is without a doubt the best film of the year for me. Tarantino's World War II fairy tale might not be his masterpiece (although the last line in the movie might suggest otherwise), but it is great nonetheless. It has great characters (such as Aldo, Landa and Shosanna), some instantly classic scenes, and, most importantly, the best dialogue QT has written since Jackie Brown. The dialogue contains so much unspoken threats and tension, that the violence that follows it almost acts as comic relief. And speaking about comedy, the movie is quite hilarious. I really enjoyed every minute, from the great opening scene to the outrageous ending. Tarantino's back on top form!

Since I had absolutely nothing to do today I also saw G.I. Joe, which I normally wouldn't do as the trailer made it out to be a big dumb action movie. As it turns out, it was dumb in every aspect, but I was surprised that I somewhat enjoyed it.

I ended up at GI Joe because a friend wanted to see it. I knew from the previews I thought the effects looked awful, especially with that much money spent, and I thought they were awful when I saw the full movie. What was surprising to me is that the script isn't half bad. I can understand why movie execs would have read that script and thought to themselves they could make a big blockbuster out of it. Now of course there were the jokey side characters which were bad for the movie, and I'm going to guess added into the script later to make it kid friendly. Taking that same script and scaling it up for adults and actually spending less money on effects would have probably ended up with a really decent movie.

Oh ya, the "big twist" was so telegraphed that I would assume half the theater guessed the twist before the movie even hinted there would be one.

As an aside, we should probably get the 2 movie threads merged into just a general movie thread, right?

Anyway, here is some talk about a District 9 sequel or prequel(spoilers in link):

Not to post a "Me Too" or anything, but I have no problem with merging the Summer Movies and the regular Movies threads. I just created the other Movies thread so we can talk about movies outside the Summer season, but having it all in one place would be just fine with me.

Add my vote too for combining threads. And I like the idea of mentioning what exactly you're posting a spoiler for before posting one.

Most importantly, I think it's the mark of a great movie that it can spark such discussion. Most summer sci-fi flicks, you can just go to the theater and more or less turn your brain off for two hours while you let dazzling special effects tickle your eyes. But anything that actually generates critical thought without losing its continuity is a special film.

Basterds was among the best, D9 was great as well. Public Enemies lacked in several ways. Star Trek was overall very solid, Hangover was very funny. Funny People was a waste of time.

Also, anyone else laughing at Sandler for picking Funny People over Basterds?

Who was ripping off Ricky Gervais, who created the show and character. Gervais was probably ripping off someone else he had seen do the buffoon act before too. It's tough to be totally original.
