War movies are great. Especially when they are done perfectly! You are literally plunged into the heat of war and the placement and atmosphere is breathtaking. One of my favorite war movies are Alexander The Great & Troy!

I actually haven't watched Alexander the Great, unfortunately. :( I did watch Troy, but not the whole thing; only the beginning. My personal favorite would probably have to be Saving Private Ryan. Opening sequence was just simply amazing.

Saving Private Ryan was the first World War II movie that I ever watched. Other World War II movies that I have watched are Sink the Bismarck, Tora Tora Tora!, Pearl Harbor, and Midway. Also Saving Private Ryan was based upon the Niland brothers during World War II

Not sure if it counts as a war movie, but it counts as a POW movie which is set during WWII which is "The Great Escape" starring Steve McQueen.

Favorite movie(s): The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Serendipity, Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amelie Poulain, The Lion King... probably tons more, but it's difficult to remember and choose.
Answer a topic: What are some of your favorite moment in movies? PLOT TWISTS. When you are surprised, amazed and sit on the edge of your sofa and just "WHAAAT?" I love that feeling.

Oh my goodness, Lion King is amazing. <3 Up to now, I've watched both one and two for about a total of eight times already. I'm also a huge fan of Dark Knight, haha. Anyway, welcome, Rika! Good to have your here!

Lion King was legit my favorite movie when I was a kid. The scene where Mufasa died always made me ugh in me and it still does

The Lion King, The Dark Knight, great movie tastes, Rika :D The Lion King is my favorite movie of all time. I liked 1 & 2. 1 1/2 (or 3 in non US countries), was pretty amusing imo xD

Anyways, added the Need for Speed trailer on the opening post, if anyone's interested in taking a look! The movie is in theaters right now. :D

Have any of you guys been able to watch Dark Knight Rises? I have, but didn't really enjoy it as much as I thought I would, though. ): One thing that really disappointed me is the main villain. If it were someone else other than Bane (Poison Ivy and Mr. Freeze would be two great examples), I definitely would have liked it more.

Yeah, I didn't like DK Rises as much as DK. The middle movie was the best imo, which is really quite unusual for trilogies! Another instance I can think about is that many seem to enjoy The Two Towers more than the first and last LOTR movies.

The Lion King is an amazing movie when you think about it, especially considering it's mainly for children. An epic tale of betrayal and family, spanning years and deserts and jungles and savannas, featuring some of the most memorable characters ever. They aren't even afraid to bring up the subject of death, something I think Disney movies are very silly with these days. Mufasa and Scar and probably a lot of hyenas die. And toss in the sequel too and you'll have somewhat of a conclusion as well.

I actually have the Dark Knight trilogy and a Batman movie four pack. The Batman movie four pack includes Batman (1989), Batman Returns, Batman Forever, and Batman and Robin (1997). If you are looking for a Batman movie that has both Poison Ivy and Mr. Freeze, I would recommend watching Batman and Robin.

I'm kind of liking these modern superhero movies. I admit there's been a bit too much of superheroes in the cinema this past decade, but most of those movies have been doing a fresh take on the whole superpower and suit business. I actually even enjoyed Green Lantern 8)

I didn't enjoy Man of Steel overly much though. It was just... a bit too serious. The older movies always had a glint in their eye, sort of. This broke all that. These Batman movies, on the other hand, reinvented the brand in a very good way.

Not sure how I feel about the newest Amazing Spiderman movies. I feel it was a bit too soon to reinvent Spiderman, since the other movies came out after 2000.

The Bane from TDKR was kinda disappointing for me. Since I was expecting the huge venom powered powerhouse, but Christopher Nolan DID say he wanted a more realistic approach to the Batman universe and yea, that's exactly what he did, so in that way he did not disappoint. I also liked the 2nd Batman movie more for the villain, but for the plot I prefer the 3rd installement.

Also, the reason why Man of Steel was more serious is because of the Justice League movie adaptation they wanna do. DC is known for it's dark storyline and that's what they're aiming for.

The same thing with Spiderman, they remade Spiderman because the 3rd movie flushed out and fans didn't hate it (it's underrated imo) and they're going to make the Spiderman series in tie with the Avengers.

Favorite movie(s): Im going to pick one or a few per genre
Comedy - American Pie and Fired Up. They are both stupidly funny movies i could watch over and over again. American Pie is a classic, Fired Up is probably the movie ive watched the most times ever.
Action - Fast 5, Never Back Down, The Dark Knight. Fast 5 is my favorite and imo the best out of the series. I think there is a good balance between Action and Driving scenes, and i loved how they pulled all the cats from the previous movies together. Never Back Down is a movie that just makes me want to go out and surpass any limit i think i have. I know its not the best movie in any espect, but i still enjoy it a lot. The Dark Knight, what can i say that hasnt been said? An amazing Joker performance, a great and entertaining plot and some extremely scenes. The best out of the trilogy if you ask me.
All-Time Favorite - Saw, the first one. The ones that come after one put a lot of emphasis on gore, but I has a very thrilling and suspensful plot that keeps you on edge at all times. Its not too gory and it features the most suprising ending ive ever seen.

Answer a topic:
How often do you watch movies?
Extremely often! I used to go to the theaters about 2 or 3 times a month. Recently though, there havent been that many movies that caught my interest, but i still watch a lot of them at home, probably around 2 movies a week. Is there anything better than a comfy movie night on weekends? I dont think so :D

Some of my favorite Movie genres
Id have to say Comedy and Action are my two favorite, followed by Thrillers in a close 3rd Spot. I can enjoy any genre though as long as the movie appeals to me, so there is that. What i like about the Action scenes is of course the action, be it fighting, shooting or things blowing up. Comedies are always good to laugh and have a good time, forgetting whatever troubles your mind for the duration of the movie. As for thrillers, i love suspensful plots that keep you on edge and interested throughout a whole movie. And its nice to try and figure out whats really going on by yourself

So yeah, looking forward to talk and discuss with all of you!

Welcome to the club, Zorogami~ My ex-boyfriend was the one that introduced me to the American Pie movies and they have also become part of my favorites as well. The Naked Mile would be my favorite from the series, it was freaking hilarious from beginning to the end.

Oh my goodness.. BAAAANE. He became a villain that I love to hate. Anyone felt the same way? I guess the first Dark Knight movie was much better than the 2nd one because of how the villains performed. Heath Ledger did an excellent performance as The Joker and wow, I just literally applaud at the end. (RIP Heath btw ;;)

You know, I was sort of sad how Two-Face didn't get to play much of a big role in Dark Knight. :( I mean, Harvey Dent was a major part of it, but when that accident happened causing his face to burn, we just didn't get to see much of him anymore. Would have been really nice if they'd saved him instead of killing; that way, he could've been able to replace Bane in Dark Knight Rises... or perhaps they both could have co-existed? Also, welcome to our club, Zorogami!

Thanks for the welcome guys!! As for the current topic, i did like Bane a lot, i just thought his demise was rather...quick and nothing special. After he keeps smacking Batman around, its catwoman who blasts him with the Batcycle, which was pretty disappointing. Also, i found it rather unfitting how he turned out to be a bit of a softie towards the end. The Jokes was no doubt the better villain.

Having two-face play a bigger role would have been great. As Peitharchia said, Harvey Dent played a major role, and giving two-face more screen time or even bringing him back for TDKR would have made for some interesting plot possibilities. Too bad

Aw, and my favorite American Pie is probably a tie between the 2nd one and The Reunion (:

Hah, I loved those as well. Every American Pie movie is pretty funny. xD

Wanted to bring in a new topic if that's alright! Kinda...old since the Oscars were almost a month ago. What does everyone think of the movies that won awards this year? Would you watch them just to see if they were worthy? Like, a few years ago when The Hurt Locker won for best director, I wanted to see how it was well-directed, and HOLY CRAP I wasn't aware that movie was directed by a woman and that movie was very well made. Very good movie, btw.

The Oscars, good question. Apparently i dont have Oscar taste, because ive only seen the movies that didnt win (barely) anything, like Wolf of Wall Street, American Hustle or The Great Gatsby. Im really interested in watching Dallas Buyers Club, not really because of the Oscars it won, but because it seems to be a rather interesting and pretty peculiar movie. As for the other movies, i really dont think ill be watching them. Well maybe Frozen, but because its a Disney movie above all other reasons.

Also, ive always wanted to watch Hurt Locker but somehow never got to it...that needs to change

Of the movies that won Oscars this year, the only one I have watched is Frozen. When it comes to the other movies that won this year, I would probably consider watching The Great Beauty even though it is in Italian.

12 Years A Slave is one movie I'd go for watching. Not only because it won a ton of awards that night, but it's because of Lupita Nyong'o, who won Best Supporting Actress. A friend of mine who's a movie freak told me that her performance in that movie was superior and exceeded his expectations. I'd love to see that movie for myself.

I watched 12 Years A Slave because it won, and I liked it. It's like a less funny version of Django Unchained xD Not necessarily less bloody... Very serious and depressing at times. Lupita Nyong'o was good, yeah. Also Benedict Cumberbatch was in it 8=) *goes to rewatch Sherlock*

I liked Wolf Of Wall Street a bit too. It was a cool movie, but what I didn't like was how it portrayed women.
Spoiler:
No fat women and only ugly men and female bodyparts all over the place. Sexist, I say. We only got a tiny glance at Donnie's sausage and half a glance at Leo Dicaprio's. Why not show them if you're going to show vajajays?

Although i really enjoyed the movie, i agree on what you say about being sexist. There is a lot (probably too much?) gratuitous nudity, and women are potrayed mostly as having a weak character and are almost exclusively seen as sex objects.

I had a feeling that The Incredibles would be getting a sequel. I figured it was their turn to get one. Course for movies made by Pixar, A Bug's Life which came out back in 1998 still has not gotten one.
