Action : 13th Warrior

Quote: from said movie
Ahmed Ibn Fahdlan: [as Herger offers a mead horn] I cannot taste neither the fermentation of grape, nor of wheat.
[Herger laughs]
Ahmed Ibn Fahdlan: What? Why do you laugh?
Herger the Joyous: [laughing, and handing over the bottle] HONEY! It's made from honey!

My Chocolate Mead is bulk aging and should be ready. I've also got a Cherry Melomel bottled that should age very nicely and be ready for Pennsic. Probably the only two for next year, after that... I'll be giving House de Londres a run for their money. ;D

I just watched Ong-Bak on Sunday night, and I had to post on here to let you all know that it was fantastic! Muay Thai is a beautiful art, and Tony Jaa enacts it with amazing skill. For those who are unfamiliar with Muay Thai, it is a very brutal martial art. There are very few defensive moves that do not end with a devastating counter attack. You know that one move in every fighting movie that makes everyone in the room say " Oh God!" and cringe, maybe even rewind a few times? That feeling pretty much sums up Ong-Bak. You may find yourself empathizing with the opponents that Ting (the main character) faces.

The story is that of a young Monk in training who is told to never use his Muy Thai skills. Unfortunately the head of the Buddha is taken from the local monastery, and it is time for somebody to go get it back. "Ting my boy...forget what I said earlier. Go kick some ass!" This is not a direct quote, but it does pretty much sum up the rest of the film. Butt kicking, butt kicking, but kicking.......little bit of story.... identity crisis.....but kicking, but kicking, but kicking....Hooray for Ting!!!! The plot is simple, and you will find yourself appreciating that. Who needs story line when you have such beautifully choreographed whoopings?

If you like watching people kick other people, GO RENT THIS MOVIE!

Cheers

Greenblood,

Everybody I have shown this movie to has been impressed... I've gotten a lot of "Oh my Gods" from my female friends, from guys it's a universal "Holy Shit dude....(then a good 15 minutes going on about the action scenes)" This movie was made with a low budget and a bunch of raw talent... Which is why it is my pic for best film of the year. Yes it came out in the Asian markets in 2003, and yes I've had the DVD since late 2004, but for the rest of you... it was just released in the US theaters February of this year, USA DVD released August 30th. If you like Action... this puts almost all US films to shame.

For those of you who still don't know what Ong Bak is, see trailer...

(Mynx - If you and your man haven't seen this yet... get out and rent it, you will both dig it hardcore!)

The Newest Bond film "Casino Royale" IS the best Bond film to date... although I like Connery's Bond better, his films hold nothing to this one as far as action & plot go. I give Casino Royale 4.5 stars out of 5, none of the other Bond films would I place above a 4.

Thirty-plus replies, and only ONE mention of The Big Lebowski. It's a crime, I tell you.

And Monty Python's The Meaning of Life. And The Life of Brian. The opening song from that one is enough to send beer cascading out of my nasal orifices.

I love that Three Amigos quote, too. However, I feel that Lebowski is the most quotable movie in the history of cinema. My personal favorite from that one is:

"Donny was a good bowler, and a good man. He was one of us. He was a man who loved the outdoors... and bowling... And as a surfer he explored the beaches of Southern California, from La Jolla to Leo Carrillo and... up to... Pismo. He died, like so many young men of his generation, he died before his time. In your wisdom, Lord, you took him, as you took so many bright flowering young men at Khe Sanh, at Langdok, at Hill 364. These young men gave their lives. And so would Donny. Donny, who loved bowling. And so, Theodore Donald Karabotsos, in accordance with what we think your dying wishes might well have been, we commit your final mortal remains to the bosom of the Pacific Ocean, which you loved so well. Good night, sweet prince."

And...

"This is not 'Nam, this is bowling, Smokey. There are rules."

And...

"Say what you will about the tenets of National Socialism, but at least it's an ethos!"

There are many, many more. Sadly, most would not be appropriate for this board. Nevertheless, I feel that this film is the pinnacle of snappy writing in cinema. The Coens managed to make a dialogue-driven film where the action is completely secondary to the plot. It's magnificent.

"I just need to find an ATM..."

Peace,
Ogre

The Must see movie of the decade - Hot Fuzz -
It's the funniest film I've seen in the last twenty years!


...and that's saying a lot, seeing as I've seen over 3500 films in my life, possibly over 4000 by now. (It was over 2600 in 1989 - I counted them off in a film review book... I had also seen a # of films not listed in it's index as well). Do yourself a favor and go see it this weekend in the theatre, I'll be going again tomorrow. It's by the same people who brought you Shaun of the Dead... only 10X funnier.

Cheers,
Wrathwilde

1. Definitely on my MUST see list. I still can't watch "Shaun of the Dead" without laughing my head off.

2. Do you remember the name of the movie review book you used? I'm morbidly curious as to my total now. :BangHead:

Thriller: The Shining

Comedy: Shaun of the Dead, Supertroopers, Sgt Bilko, Major Payne

Horror: House on Haunted Hill

Action: Gladiator, Crank, 13th Warrior

Drama: Somewhere in Time

Animation: The Incredibles

Fantasy: Lord of the Rings (all three)

Sci-Fi: Star Wars (the original), The Matrix (first one), Forbidden Planet, Blade Runner

Classic: The Ten Commandments, Lawrence of Arabia, Ben Hur

Musical: I don't care much for musicals though I'd be willing to bet "Sweeney Todd" does well.

Cult: Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Wierdest: Doppleganger (I felt like I lost IQ points after suffering through that one.)

Anybody see any really good movies in the last year or two, and I mean good as in twenty years from now it's still going to be a solid film, a modern classic. Sadly I can't think of any new ones... they've all been marginal. Iron man was good... but it wasn't great. It's a sad day when a television show (Battlestar Galactica) is better than any film I've seen in the past two years. That's not to put down BSG, I'm just saying - where are the great movies?

For any of you who like mash ups... "Requiem for a Day Off", If Ferris Bueller was a disturbing thriller instead of a comedy... this would be it.


Cheers,
Wrathwilde
