Will do. (not sure if sarcastic btw lol)

There's actually a 2 for 1 double feature tomorrow...Moonrise Kingdom and To Rome With Love. I've heard mostly average and negative things about the latter film, but will give it a try since it'll only be $4 for both movies

I remember enjoying it when I saw it a decade or so ago.

Yes, T1000 was in it. As were a ton of famous actors. I was shocked at how many recognizable people were in it.

7/10

ok, this started off good. i laughed at some of the absurdities, but overall, i just thought it went on for a bit too long. i think 20 minutes or so could have been cut. there were a couple lull periods. i also think they could have given sal some more lines.

the acting was top notch and i understand a lot of it was meant as satire, but i don't really understand why this movie is so highly praised. i also get that it was an early hostage situation in a major city that hadn't had much experience at all in that realm. it also tried to show how people dealt under pressure but some of it felt contrived. i do give credit for the raw visuals though...very solid for a movie made in 1975. it just seemed to really tiptoe the line of incredulous and calm seriousness.

maybe it was so well ahead of its time and i can't grasp that. maybe i was just tired. it didn't scream instant classic to me. it doesn't have to do with being 'old'. hitchcock's psycho is one of my favs. for now, i just lump it into my overrated list, which includes crash, inglorious basterds, forrest gump, snatch, ocean's eleven, cloverfield, expendables, etc. that's a whole other topic. i'm sure if a thread was made on overrated/underrated movies, there'd be endless arguing and bickering. to each their own.

i can't explain other things without a couple spoilers so here goes....

spoilers in white:

funny moments included:

- the whole heist seemed like a botchfest, so the first 15 or so minutes was pretty funny to me

- when sonny was screaming 'attica! attica! attica!' and the crowd got behind him. it was well acted and i guess it was intended as a dramatic scene...but again, i just kinda chuckled

- when sonny ran to the backroom and shot at the window

- sal not knowing wisconsin was a state

- just some of the negotiating scenes in general. it was kinda cartoonish. again, i know the times were much different back then and they didn't have tactical forces and snipers but it still felt kinda off to me

- couple other things i'm missing but man, this was almost mostly a comedy for me

a word on warrior-

do people not realise they are watching a b movie through and through? when i saw it it felt like the epitome of the straight to video 80/90's b movie martial arts film. if this had been made a few years ago it would have had van damme, jeff wincott, dolph lundgren, don the dragon wilson in it.
