Got a question about serial movies (or miniseries, TV-episodes): Les Vampires is 7h and 1mins in 10 episodes. Do i add it as 7 checks or will i do mathematical gymnastics to match each episode with another?

The set-up here has echoes of Odd Man Out, but this is more of a mood piece, and between the orange-lit night streets, atmospheric music and shaky camerawork, the film feels horror-like as it captures the dread, fear and uncertainty of its protagonist. Along such lines, it almost makes sense that the supporting characters blur together with it unclear who is who. Then again, as a movie told from an omniscient perspective, this muddling does not always work, but the film certainly provides an admirably gritty sense of really being there.

29. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (Steven Spielberg, 2008) - 4/10
Lame, charmless cash grab.
30. The Equalizer (Antoine Fuqua, 2014) - 7/10
I find it kind of funny that both this and John Wick came out at the same time, since they have the same plot. Retired widowed killer takes vengeance on a Russian crime organization after someone they love gets hurt. Anyways, I am sucker for movies with force of nature characters that wipe the floor with everyone else.
31. Mr. & Mrs. Smith (Doug Liman, 2005) - 2/10
This must the worst movie I have seen in the last few years. The action was dull, the characters were really unlikable and for a real world couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had zero on-screen chemistry. I also hated how over sexualized Jolie was in this. Half of the shots where she is the focus felt like Pantene commercials, with her slowly turning her head towards the camera and throwing her hair. Just awful. :yucky:

29. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (Steven Spielberg, 2008) - 4/10
Lame, charmless cash grab.
30. The Equalizer (Antoine Fuqua, 2014) - 7/10
I find it kind of funny that both this and John Wick came out at the same time, since they have the same plot. Retired widowed killer takes vengeance on a Russian crime organization after someone they love gets hurt. Anyways, I am sucker for movies with force of nature characters that wipe the floor with everyone else.
31. Mr. & Mrs. Smith (Doug Liman, 2005) - 2/10
This must the worst movie I have seen in the last few years. The action was dull, the characters were really unlikable and for a real world couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had zero on-screen chemistry. I also hated how over sexualized Jolie was in this. Half of the shots where she is the focus felt like Pantene commercials, with her slowly turning her head towards the camera and throwing her hair. Just awful. :yucky:

Got a question about serial movies (or miniseries, TV-episodes): Les Vampires is 7h and 1mins in 10 episodes. Do i add it as 7 checks or will i do mathematical gymnastics to match each episode with another?
When I watched it for another challenge I added the times for the first five episodes which comes to 152 minutes and watched another 28 minutes of shorts for 3 points. Each of the last five episodes are over 40 minutes so they count for a point apiece. Even if you don't watch another 28 minute short you still get 7 points (2 for first five and 5 for second five).

:cheers:

89. Challenge of the Tiger (1980)
One of the best of the Brucesploitation flicks due to its sheer sleaziness and ridiculousness.

90. Dong fang san xia (1993) a.k.a. The Heroic Trio
Johnnie To makes a wuxia superhero movie. It's colorful, nutty and kinda fun.

91. Gunmen (1993)
Another reminder that Christopher Lambert is a horrible actor. Denis Leary is pretty solid as the smartass, evil villain though ('natch).

92. Kenka erejî (1966) a.k.a. Fighting Elegy
Definitely has the touch of Seijun Suzuki in it's odd little moments and outbursts of visceral violence.

93. Mo jong yuen So Hat-Yi (1992) a.k.a. King of Beggars
Stephen Chow is fine in this fairly middle of the road farce of a man disgraced who is forced to become a beggar but rises to defeat an evil warlord. Not one of Chow's best but it's entertaining enough.

94. Chik geuk siu ji (1993) a.k.a. Bare-Footed Kid
Another Johnnie To flick. While I didn't like how the main character seemed to fluctuate between pathetic and cocky, the fight sequences were fantastic and brutal.

95. Nan quan bei tui (1976) a.k.a. Secret Rivals
Solid kung fu movie with good fight choreography and a basic but serviceable story of rivals teaming up to take down the Silver Fox, it shows it low budget origins at times but still offers some solid action, especially in the latter half.

96. Jiao tou fa wei (1985) a.k.a. The Master Strikes Back
Bleh... depressing melodrama with only a couple of real action sequences and some disturbing castration gore. If this is what the Shaw Bros. were reduced to at the end of their output, it was probably best they stop production.

17. X-Men: Days of Future Past - 5.5

Superhero movies and Jennifer Lawrence are both among the worst things going today. Still, I enjoyed this movie a fair bit. Wolverine is the only X-Men character interesting enough to carry the load of a film, and Jackman does a good job playing the part. This is about as good as the modern CGI boom blast bullshit blockbuster gets.

18. The Mountain Between Us - 3

Just an odd, dull and really poorly written and edited film. It's no better than a 90s Lifetime movie.

Got a question about serial movies (or miniseries, TV-episodes): Les Vampires is 7h and 1mins in 10 episodes. Do i add it as 7 checks or will i do mathematical gymnastics to match each episode with another?
When I watched it for another challenge I added the times for the first five episodes which comes to 152 minutes and watched another 28 minutes of shorts for 3 points. Each of the last five episodes are over 40 minutes so they count for a point apiece. Even if you don't watch another 28 minute short you still get 7 points (2 for first five and 5 for second five).

:cheers:
That seems like a good course of action to me.

15. Need for Speed (2014) USA | India | UK | France | Phillipines 1 official list 3380 checks
Haven't played the game, but I can safely say that the movie only needed 30 minutes of racing to get the point across. One race to create conflict, one to resolve it. The rest is only filler. So I might has well just played the game. Aaron Paul might be a good actor, but he's a terrible lead.
bonus. The Bodyguard (1992) USA 1 official list 22367 checks
Listed as action on imdb as far as I can remember, but that genre is probably set in the late 90s when their rules were different. It's starts out as a Music/Romance, and ends like a Thriller. So it's extremely difficult to give genres to the movie as a whole.

6: Heroic Duo (2003) 7

Looking back towards the Heroic Bloodshed sub-genre of Hong Kong’s last Action boom, the screenplay by Alan Yuen & Adrian Kwan welds the major bond/loyalty in blood theme of the genre with the slick complexities of the modern psychological Thriller. Peeling away in flashbacks at the final to what triggered the events, the writers give the movie a slippery, unpredictable atmosphere,lit by absurd slides into “mindhunting” and hypnotism,which are solidly held by Ken and Lai’s exchange in mind-games. Running the action scenes with an earthy grit from being filmed on streets, director Benny Chan and cinematographer give the movie a glossy appearance,with darting whip-pans hitting the targeted mind-games of the heroic duo.

While the special effects and high octane animal fight scenes are given lots of screen time, it is the rapport between Johnson and the gorilla in the film that works the best here, communicating through sign language and getting on like drinking buddies beyond the species divide. A better film may have fleshed out this chemistry more, though the biggest drawback (beyond the farfetched central concept) is the fact that the antagonists played by Malin Akerman and Jake Lacy are borderline comical.

7. Game Night (Goldstein-Daley, 2018) 5/10
8. Batoru rowaiaru / Battle Royale (Fukasaku, 2000) [Rewatch]
A now-classic film which applies low-fi but realistic action in a high-stakes sci-fi concept. The allegory for the vicious world of high school is still effective, and it's enjoyable to watch a film with such skilled pacing - no hanging about, but also enough characterisation so we get to empathasise with the children before they kill each other. Having read the novel this month before watching it gives me a new appreciation for how the story has been streamlined and simplified to actually improve it.
8/10

Image

9. Batman: Gotham by Gaslight (Liu, 2018)
Mostly entertaining, though nothing like the highs of Batman: The Animated Series. The action sequences are well done, and I liked the mature tone and steampunk setting. However there are weaker aspects: Batman rarely seems like the brilliant detective and fighter that he should be and when the villain is revealed there's too much mad ranting.
5/10

Image

10. Point Blank (Boorman, 1967)
Boorman brings a French New Wave sensibility to an American gangster revenge film. Lee Marvin is highly effective here and the style is wonderful, but there were a lot of things that spoiled the story for me: the silly use of Alcatraz as a drop-off for drug smugglers, the way the story keeps slowing down to a crawl at points, and the disappointing ending.
6/10

Image

11. Exists (Sánchez, 2014)
A fairly standard found footage movie that plays out like a siege, with Bigfoot after some disposable young people. It avoids some traps of found footage movies by keeping up the pacing and delivering plenty of the monster, it falls into others by casting bad actors to play annoying one-dimensional characters and having them inexplicably keep filming as Bigfoot chases them and lays waste to their hideouts. There are a few effective scenes, notably one where Bigfoot chases a guy trying to escape on a BMX, but the film also skimps on the death scenes and has people die off-camera. I would have rated it higher we could have seen Bigfoot rip these morons apart.

All FTV's unless stated:

7: Dynamite Fighters (1987) HK. 9.


Lighting the fuse in the era when all the guys were firing with all guns blazing, director David Chung enthusiastic attitude towards doing a different type of Action flick sparkles across the swift run-time. Lassoing into the 1930’s with a war against imperialist Japan, Chung makes the action scenes stand out by putting modern fire power aside for historical weapons, whose weight in gun fights and sword play gives the fights a heaviness, neatly balanced by a rip-roaring Adventure atmosphere of slow-motion Kung-Fu moves and colourful explosions.


Fighting into the small village to save it from the boo-hiss Japanese baddies, the screenplay by Kan-Cheung Tsang perfectly compliments Chung style with the serial like mix of spies, break-neck action set-pieces,goofy comedy spots,and lead hero Ming-Ming given quiet moments that allow her family life to be seen, before Tsang throws them all into the next danger on the adventure. Charging into battle, the eye-catching Michelle Yeoh gives an extremely charismatic performance as Ming-Ming. Kicking the action with a graceful ease, Yeoh brings a real sense of excitement to Ming-Ming diving into a dangerous adventure, and lighting the fuse of the dynamite fighters.
