They had exploding cannon balls aswell as the ones you are familliar with, FYI.

Extra FYI: They also had something they called "Shot"; lots of tiny cannon balls together so the cannon fired like a giant shotgun with the tiny cannon balls like giant versions of the pellets.

A historical expert on the matter said so on TV.

yes i am aware of canister shot, which is what you're referring to, thanks professor. however 'they' used roundshot at Waterloo, which is intended to ricochet along the ground at high speeds (and didn't work very well at Waterloo since the ground was too muddy) - this doesn't explode

Inglourious Basterds (2009)

A quiet Monday afternoon here and I thought I'd catch up on some recorded movies. It is 35c outside and luckily I am high and by the (cooling) sea with a strong NW breeze :p

Now I'd heard of this movie a while ago, never viewed before and thought I'd view.

OK, yes, a war movie, Germans, Jews and all you'd expect but really, I did not expect to be entertained for two hours. Yes, I know; people will say Brad Pitt :!: but trust me on this, given the chance you must view it!

Special (rare) mention here: Actor Christoph Waltz played Col. Hans Landa and very well IMO :up:

8.5/10

IMDB

Just because they were the first doesn't mean they aren't stereotypes today. I clearly state that one needs to realize this was a movie from the 80's and you have to watch it like a movie from the 80's, otherwise the immensely shallow characters really start working on your nerves.

PS: opinions people, opinions....

The issue being that no movie can come close to it since its release, the stereotypes were spot on, its an action / horror flick for entertainment not realism. That's not to mention the settings, models, sounds, the way they played on the scanner n shit... 'Theyre in the walls man'.

Even taken out of context from the 80s the film stacks up against the best of today.

I wasn't saying it was a bad movie. The whole design, atmosphere and premise is excellent. It's just a shame the acting is so eye wateringly bad.

You see, Alien (the 1st) had many of the same things, even though it was far less action oriented, yet had none of cheesy characters.

I realize the characters may have been regarded as not cheesy at all back in '86, but anno 2014 it requires some effort to not get distracted by that. In the same way we nowadays say [insert legendary retro game here] hasn't aged very well".

The Hunger Games (2012)

My first time watching and you've probably seen it.

I do enjoy sci-fi and this generally not too bad at all IMO. Just enough to keep you watching to the end and I did enjoy.
7.5/10

I'm saying it hasn't aged very well in certain aspects. The original Alien, or indeed many other '80s movies suffer less from this.

It looked disjointed and incoherent. I was in the mood for a thriller, not a piddler.

Fury (2014)

Yes, that Brad Pitt tank movie.
It has been out a week or so here so I visited while getting car serviced today (lovely weather)

Nice by all my measures and I would say a good war film. Powerful silhouettes at the beginning and end but the tank silhouettes against the movie background throughout proved very powerful for me at least.

No spoilers offered :D so go see it and I trust yo will enjoy as I did.

There just is no end to all the stereotype characters in this movie. I actually liked it less than Alien, even though it was slightly easier to watch (mostly due to more conventional pacing I guess). When watching this movie, you really have to place it in a mid-80's frame of mind, otherwise it gets kind of corny. Back then, it was a pretty revolutionary movie I guess.


Brilliant.

Interstellar 7/10

I really wanted to like it more, but it was slow moving and it kinda lost me with its conclusion. not that it was a bad conclusion, just a bit incoherent.

On the other hand, it has some mind blowing real physics based moments to it.

Gone Girl - 10/10

I heard this movie was all right, and it started out like I imagined it probably would have... but what in the fuck did I sit through? Not what I expected, not ruined by the trailer, not even ruined by Ben Affleck. Would recommend checking it out.

The more I think about it though, the more I hated the part with Matt Damon. He narrated all of his actions like a James bond villain.

I didnt like it :(, this may contain a > SPOILER < mind.

I thought the start was great, the build up then it throws you into the main story with the countdown. All good, but then the filler kicks in, a dude dies just because, a women cries just because and a dude goes insane - just because which all builds up to the big reveal which is a bootstrap paradox.

The visuals were great and the planets and space scenes were amaze but the story left me wanting a lot more, especially from a film with not a lot of action and devoting the last 45 mins to closing it off :(

Theres more, like the walking tetris and the redneck son thats forgotten about by the end of the movie, but I will give it credit for not blaming it on Jesus though, that wouldve been so easy to do :up:
