watch this dope ass documentary called Bus 174
Documentary depicts what happened in Rio de Janeiro on June 12th 2000, when bus 174 was taken by an armed young man, threatening to shoot all the passengers. Transmitted live on all Brazilian TV networks, this shocking and tragic-ending event became one of violence's most shocking portraits, and one of the scariest examples of police incompetence and abuse in recent years.
they made a movie too but its alright
We do it for the people.
"In the abundance of water, the fool is thirsty"
this is a movie i watched this morning...
^^^so you thought the hour they spent at sandler's ex's house with her kids was interesting or amusing? i felt like seth rogen's character during that stretch. the movie wasn't funny, dude. all the cock jokes and 'david beckham, will smith and tom cruise touch dicks' and all that dumb shit... it was boring imo. i'm probably just out of touch with newer comedy movies since i hate most of them and don't find them funny.
you're telling the movie couldn't have lost roughly an hour and been improved by it?
^yes it would.there were a slew of unnecessary scenes in that movie that were uninteresting and contributed nothing to the story. dude, the movie was 2.5 hours. it could've lost an hour easily.
you would not lose 'the central theme of the movie' by editing it down and making it less of a masturbatory exercise for judd apatow and an excuse to give his family speaking roles.
did you like the movie or are you just being argumentative as a way to consume time?
I have my problems with it, but I actually think the humor is just fine, besides despite the title it is meant to be a drama. I'm not trying to argue with you, but it is clear by your answers that you have no clue what the movie is about, I mean it's a simple question any first year film student can answer. I could sum it up in 9 words. Can you?
are you really trotting out the old 'you didn't like it, so you must not understand it' bit? for this movie?
i understood the concept fine. (and no i am not wasting any more time on this post explaining my interpretation of it, so if you won't to go 'so you didn't understand it then', have a ball. or two. orally.)
i can't just dislike the movie? the comedy didn't work for me, and neither did the contrived and poorly acted drama.
i saw your posts edging closer to the passive-agressive condescencion that characterizes your posting style, but i didn't believe you would actually do the whole 'you don't get it' thing.
i'm done. i didn't like the movie and thought it was awful and a waste of time. accept it. or not.
Stop getting so defensive, god you're just like a ten year old. I'm simply asking you to give me your interpretation of what you thought the movie was about, something you haven't been able to do up to this point. I'm not saying you didn't get it, this is not an accusation. I'm simply asking you if you know what the movie was about and can elucidate on that. But if you wanna turn to babyish backtracking tactics because you feel embarrassed by a simple question, it just shows your level of maturity and intelligence. Way to give up in frustration too. I thought that was especially cute.
American History X-excellent drama its in the Top 100 IMDB movies. Feat Edward Norton, of "Fight Club" fame.
Ip Man- Top notch martial arts one of the best martial arts films , featuring Donnie Yen, who is a Chinese movie celebrity. It's a semi accurate biography of Ip Man, a martial arts master, dude who taught Bruce Lee
I would post an awesome fight scene from the film but that would kinda ruin it. Wing Chun martial arts is sick though.
^that's not a question.it is clear by your answers that you have no clue what the movie is about
do you have a movie you'd like to recommend?
ya, i liked 'american history x', although i thought some of the scenes were ridiculous and implausible, i'll check out 'ip man' eventually. hopefully.
