King deez

Is it just me or does King Kong look like its going to suck? Naomi Watts as a lead girl? She's butt ugly, and was terrible in both Ring movies. Jack Black in a non-comedy role? please.

I don't know, it justs looks baaaaad.

Syko Boy

King Deez: Yeah, it will suck, but the sheep idiots out there will flock to see it anyway. It'll have a highly successful 2 week run in the theaters and then plummet. This is the time that other studios should be willing to go up against Kong and put out some good films, instead of brining out the January crap movies.

Interesting - I have 7 new releases this week in my Netflix queue and not one of them is any of the above listed titles...

plantronics cs55

not many new release this week? surprising considering is X-mas coming up?

I don't know - almost all of the buzz I've heard on King Kong has been overwhelmingly positive. Interesting that the "Production Diaries" are being released now - seems like Peter Jackson's releasing DVD extras for a film at the same time it's opening theatrically...

Adam

All reviews except one on Rotten Tomatoes has been positive for King Kong. This movie may win an Oscar.

Oh and the bad review is a 2 out of 4.

I'm going to be a radical here and not judge a movie I haven't seen. Why does movie discussion always have to devolve into "only dumb sheep go see a movie *I* don't like"? Do you have any idea how shallow and immature that makes you sound?

Although I'm not enthralled with the Kong story itself (I always liked Godzilla better as a kid), Peter Jackson knows how to put a film together, so I'm willing to give the thing a rental.

My only problem with the trailer is some of the shots of Kong in NYC look really poorly integrated. I'm talking "Jabba The Hutt talking to Han Solo in the Star Wars - Episode IV special edition" poor.

How stupid is this with Blockbuster...

They have the rated version of "40 yr old Virgin" and the unrated version but the UR version is ONLY in FS. If you want WS, you're stuck with the rated version. Why not carry both in WS or let the FS version be rated and the WS UR.

You're going to be a "radical" and not judge a movie you haven't seen? Wow. So, do you go out and see every single movie that comes out?

I mean you must, because what would make you want to see one movie over another?

That's immature and silly to say.

There are actually good movies coming out, but they will probably be over-shadowed by the, oh my, stupid Kong movie that's coming out. If anything, it's a "man, there's nothing to rent, oh, what's this, King Kong...what the hell..."

CJ

Followup on my earlier post about having 7 new releases this week in my queue - they were also at the top of my queue, and for the first time ever, Netflix actually not only showed 6 rental returns on a Monday, but also shipped on Monday, the top 6 in my queue, all new releases this week. Now that's never ever happened before in my 5 years of Netflix service...

They got 5 of my returns back and skipped all 3 of the new releases i had at the top.

But last week they sent me 3 of the 4 so I guess I cannot complain too much.

Rusty Ramrod

To the poster above, thanks for the heads up on the 40 year old virgin fiasco. I didn’t notice that. I always get the WS when available.

Also, I need some input. For the last 2 days Blockbuster has not shipped out anything to me even though I have 2 open slots in my queue. In addition, yesterday out of the 24 movie I have in there, 4 were long or short wait. Today 20 of them are showing long or short wait and we are talking old, non new release movies like When Harry Met Sally and Scary Movie. WTH happened?? Anyone ever saw anything like this before? This is insane!

Big

I've noticed A LOT of shipping delays with BB lately myself...perhaps they're throttling now as well.

Yeah BBO did that to me 2 days in a row.

It's weird too because for the first time I am getting movies from in 1 day (1 day shipping) but that is only for 1 movie...the other movies are taking over 5 days to get here. WTF???? I just started back up with them a week ago after a 3 month hiatus...

"To the poster above, thanks for the heads up on the 40 year old virgin fiasco. I didn’t notice that. I always get the WS when available."

I just checked BB and all I see if JUST the fullscreen versions in R & UR versions. The WS version is "purchase only". So no WS version at BB at all?!

What is up with that looney company, lately?! With the US moving to WS formats, BB carries just the FS versions? SOme SE versions they carry & some they don't?

There is no rhyme or reason to their offerings anymore!

>see every single movie that comes out?

Uh, no, but I'm not going to claim for sure a movie will "suck" and that people who go to see it are "sheep".

Was that really so difficult to understand?

If this is the same poster I addressed previously, your level of maturity is rapidly approaching zero.

"that people who go to see it are "sheep"."

Maybe he meant he would go see it WITH sheep. you know, raised on a farm, you find a "date" where ever you can! :p baaaa

Put deez in your mouth

"If this is the same poster I addressed previously, your level of maturity is rapidly approaching zero."

Ooooooo....you must be what, 9 years old. Is maturity your "word of the day?"

Still you said "I'm going to be a radical here and not judge a movie I haven't seen." If this was the case, you would either never see a movie or see every movie. You would have either no desire to see movies or a complete desire to see every movie. Or maybe you just randomly pick movies to see because your life is meaningless.

I can use big words too:
you smell like an anchovies cunt

But appearently you don't know how to post it only one time.

The Glimmer Man

>>If this was the case, you would either
>>never see a movie or see every movie.

You must take the short bus to school. Look, shithead, I'll type this slowly so you can maybe grasp it. They guy said he would not judge a movie before seeing it, meaning he won't make a final judgement ("it sucks") on it, and most likely won't judge those who do go see it ("sheep") simply for seeing it.

The original poster (I'm assuming you because you seem to have had a nerve twanged) stated flat out that the movie will suck and people who see it or sheep. He didn't say that it looked like a bad movie. He made a *final* judgement on a movie that he has not seen. That was THX's complaint.

>>You would have either no desire to see
>>movies or a complete desire to see every
>>movie.

No, that is *your* stram man argument. THX was talking about making a final judgement on a movie, not about whether he or she would be interested in seeing it. This is really very simple. Your inability to understand even the basis for this argument is indicative of severe mental degeneration.

But then again mentally broken people like you tend to see the entire world in terms of monochromatic absolutes. The rest of the world is 64 bit or more and you're still 1 bit, so to speak.

>>Or maybe you just randomly pick
>>movies to see because your life is
>>meaningless.

No, that would be the realm of useless little pricks like yourself who can't even grasp the basic of a simple argument.

Idiocy like yours is posted a billion times a day online. You are not unique. You are just another nameless nothing with dysfunctional brain chemistry- another bland zero in a sea of zeros.

Glimmer man is a homosexual

Do you know you were held outside of that hotel balcony?

You're daddy was trying to shake all his cum off of you.

>>You're daddy was trying to shake
>>all his cum off of you.


And you consider this... what? Clever? Hurtful?

Give it up, man. You've had your ass professionally handed to you and shoved down your throat. Your weak retorts are no match for seasoned internet flame masters, and you've been utterly torched. You lost. Deal with it and move on.

OK, dumbass.

If you're a "radical" and you're not going to judge a movie you haven't seen...THEN HOW THE FUCK WOULD YOU DECIDE WHAT MOVIE TO EVER SEE?

It's pretty fucking simple. Everybody in every situation in life makes tiny little fucking decisions as to what they are going to do. In essence, they make little "value" judgments.

"That chick is hot, I'm gonna go beat off"

"That chick is hot, I'm gonna keep sitting here"

"That chick is hot, who the fuck cares?"

"That chick is ugly, I need to barf"

"That chick is ugly, just like my buddies mom"

OMG, people make fucking judgments? No Fucking Way?

"Do I like her? Yes or No? Does that movie LOOK good, yes or no?"

So, in general, if you don't judge a fucking movie before you see it, you either (a) go see every fucking movie, (b) don't see any fucking movie or (c) choose whatever fucking movie you're going to watch randomly

also, in case you're a moron, fucking movie does not solely mean a porn in this instance

OK, moron?

Oh yeah, how do you take off a condom?

YOU FART

FYI

Also, you guys can't read at all. The first guy said the movie would suck. The second poster agreed and said people would flock to the movie like sheep.

So, I guess these seasoned flamers like to assume 2 people are one.

At least we're not talking anymore about how hard it is to open the NF envelopes!

:P

>>If you're a "radical" and you're not
>>going to judge a movie you haven't
>>seen...THEN HOW THE FUCK WOULD YOU
>>DECIDE WHAT MOVIE TO EVER SEE?

Well, I didn't make the radical comment. That was "THX", but don't let reality get in the way of your degenerate, useless mind.

Honestly, I don't know how to explain any better the difference between making a final judgement on a movie, and deciding if something looks interesting from a trailer. These are the basic conceptual skills you are supposed to develop by age 2, but you're mentally retarded or something, or taking some sort of chemicals that seriously fuck you mind up.

You are a complete idiot, and beyond any hope, any reason and chance of ever being useful to anyone or anything at all. You really should just kill yourself.


>>So, I guess these seasoned flamers
>>like to assume 2 people are one

Sort of like you retards are assuming THX, Glimmer and the unamed posts are one? Great. Retarded & hypocrites. Please die and purify the gene pool.

"Please die and purify the gene pool"

I think I just peed in the pool.~ ~ ~

Womb Raider (a sexy B movie take off of Indiana Jones) was a new release about 2 weeks ago. It is still in my queue as very long wait but it now shows as "unavailable" if you view it.

So what, did they just get one copy of it?

SO, the seasoned flamer should listen to this guy

"Give it up, man. You've had your ass professionally handed to you and shoved down your throat. Your weak retorts are no match for seasoned internet flame masters, and you've been utterly torched. You lost. Deal with it and move on."

And that one person should stop writing the same crap for the argument.

I must be doing acid, cuz I don't see what the fuck THX and Glimmer are talking about...

Oh well, why did these 2 guys go crazy over someone saying a movie might suck.

I mean damn, thanks to these two guys I feel like I am a much better person. Also, we should put them up for saint hood because they don't say movies suck unless they've seen them

Bart

"So what, did they just get one copy of it?"

Yeah, some fat sob broke their only copy while spanking the monkey to it!

"I must be doing acid, cuz I don't see what the fuck THX and Glimmer are talking about..."

No, you're just an idiot who can't understand the difference between judging a trailer and making a final judgement on a movie, something a comatose five year old can accomplish.

"something a comatose five year old can accomplish."

That would be some trick, asswipe.

"Naomi Watts as a lead girl? She's butt ugly, and was terrible in both Ring movies."

I will admit that Naomi Watts looks old. The eyes tell the age. She looks 37. Witness her lay out in the January 2006 Vanity Fair. You can see the slight wrinkles around the eyes, that betray her age. She is also too thin in my opinion. She's a scrawny waif, but that's the fad nowadays... [sigh.] But to say she's ugly is absurd. Her face is gorgeous. And it is also a flagrant lie to say that she can't act. She was great in "Mulholland Drive." I don't care about most of the other movies she's done. The Ring was OK, but not great.

"Jack Black in a non-comedy role? Please."

Jack Black sucks in _every_ role. Comedic or not. You just proved how low your standards are. Jack Black is as good at comedy as John Cusack. They both suck. Next case.

"For the last 2 days Blockbuster has not shipped out anything to me even though I have 2 open slots in my queue."

I thought I was the only one. They've been doing this to me for 3 weeks now. It's hard to get 2 movies a week on a 3-out plan. In addition, many movies are late, never come, or show up broken. I'm quitting at the end of next month if things don't pick up. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt because of the holidays. But I think they are just throttling their customers like Netflix.

"In addition, yesterday out of the 24 movie I have in there, 4 were long or short wait. Today 20 of them are showing long or short wait and we are talking old, non new release movies like When Harry Met Sally and Scary Movie. WTH happened?? Anyone ever saw anything like this before? This is insane!"

It happened to me for a few days, but I had movies out at the time and it didn't matter. Before I returned my DVDs, the availability was back to normal. Probably a computer bug, contact them and see if it straightens out.

"Uh, no, but I'm not going to claim for sure a movie will "suck" and that people who go to see it are "sheep".
Was that really so difficult to understand?"

So you couldn't see that WILD WILD WEST was going to suck just based on the trailer? Is the concept of making informed judgments so radical to you? What a moron. I think it is safe to assume ANY movie that relies on CGI effects will suck. That's a general rule.

"The original poster (...) stated flat out that the movie will suck and people who see it or sheep. He didn't say that it looked like a bad movie. He made a *final* judgement on a movie that he has not seen."

No, the first poster said it LOOK[s] like it "will suck." The second poster, Syko Boy, is the one who said it will definitely suck and that people who see it are sheep. Apparently you're too dumb to bother reading or sorting out WHO said WHAT. You just assume they are all the same person to make it easy on your self. In short, You're an Idiot. o3n3d.

"But appearently you don't know how to post it only one time."

He re-posted to correct "anchovies" (plural) to "anchovy's" (possessive). Granted,he's a dumb-ass and should have only re-posted that last line. But it was not exactly the same.

"No, you're just an idiot who can't understand the difference between judging a trailer and making a final judgement on a movie..."

The trailer usually contains the best scenes from the movie. Or at least enough interest to draw the viewer in. If the trailer looks bad, chances are you won't like the movie - unless the trailer's completely unlike the movie or totally vague. Humans make "final value judgments" based on first impressions all the time. That doesn't make them morons. It makes them rational and perceptive.

Also, who says we are judging based on JUST the trailer? The original poster didn't like the cast. I don't like the director. Peter Jackson's is a hack. His last good movie was "Heavenly Creatures." The LOTR trilogy was a steaming pile of horse crap. And I saw all 3 of them, FYI. Although I regret it. I'd say "The Hobbit" cartoon was better than all of Jackson's idiotic efforts.
