We don't really have one of these, do we?

I figured it'd be handy to have a thread where we can ask for advice about movies, for example if you're going to the cinema and can't decide what to see, or if a movie comes on TV and you don't know if it'll be worth your time.

If you think it's a stupid idea and want me to unstickify it, let me know.

Also, should it be "Help Me Decide What To See" or "Help Me Decide What To Watch"?

If you hadn't guessed already, I need advice.

I haven't been to the cinema nearly enough lately; mostly it's because I have been waiting for the day Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind would open here. That day is tomorrow.

So, I plan on going to see that, but I like to go to two movies once I make the effort to go into town. So basically I need your advice/help on which other movie to see (I might even be able to fit in two more). My options are:

Hellboy
The Chronichles of Riddick
Mean Girls
Garfield
:-?

I've only seen Hellboy, but from what I hear Mean Girls is the best of the lot.

I didn't think Hellboy was that great, but it was enjoyable.

I've only seen Hellboy, and would have chosen it out of that list if I haven't seen it.

Oh, and http://www.filmwise.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3852

I trust your opinions, boys. Looks like Hellboy and/or Mean Girls then.

Oh, and for someone who supposedly reads all posts on this board, I have absolutely no memory whatsoever of that other thread. I'll keep my thread through, unless Will objects. ;)

Just saw Hellboy last night- good flick.... stay tuned for review
and I would definately suggest Mean Girls- it was a lot of fun and you'll develop a huge crush on Lindsey :D

I thought Hellboy was great, but I really enjoyed the books too. Haven't seen the others but I've heard the best things about Mean Girls.

Mean Girls surprised me. Tina Fey (of SNL) was involved in it (i forget how), so it's not a typical high school chick flick. It's got some depth, good writing, and a decent moral.
...also, great clothes
AND, i think this thread is a great idea.

Mean Girls has gotten the most positive reviews of the 4...

I have only seen Hellboy & CoR... Hellboy was allright... nice action... fun visuals... kinda corny at times... sometimes you wish you knew more about the comic... but not bad overall.

CoR was also fun to watch... very over the top with Riddick being a bad ass... so much so that it was distracting and almost comical. I really liked Pitch Black alot... but this one was harder to like... I still enjoyed it... but I wished it was toned down a bit.

Between the two? I'd pick CoR to watch again or buy... but only because of it's link to Pitch Black I guess... I liked them both about the same. I think you'd like Hellboy more I think.

Especially since you hate Vin Diesel.

Aside from her role as a teacher ... she wrote it.

I have three hours to decide if I want to watch <i>The Shipping News</i>.

I probably won't do anything fun if I don't watch it. There's <i>The Godfather pt III</i>, but I'm probably going to tape that.

What to do?

If the other option is to do nothing, I'd do that. Shipping News wasn't a very good movie. I only watched it because the cast is kick-ass.

So, what did you end up watching?

Honestly, I just remember the movie being pretty feeble. It's possible there were good performances. Though it was definitely a milestone in Kevin Spacey's post-second-Oscar career decline.

The Shipping News is very well acted, it's just the story is boring

Can't decide whether to go see The Village or Dodgeball next week.

At the minute I'm leaning towards Dodgeball (cos Ben Stiller's in it) as I think The Village might frighen the pants off me. Still get the creeps thinking about Signs ...

I'm so pathetic!

I was going to say "It definitely won't" until you said Signs gave you the creeps. :lol: Really, I don't think it'd scare you. There's just one bit that made everyone jump, but that's not scary, it's a cheap startle.

It was a "cheap startle" in Signs that gave me restless nights ....

I suppose The Village might be worth watching for the "guess where M Night is going to show up" game.

And will these fuckers KEEP THE SHIT out of my computer?!

Sorry, that should be in the ranting thread ...
