Boondock Saints Two

Postby obskewer » Mon Nov 30, 2009 8:06 am

Just saw it today. Stays very true to the first one. Infact, it came over the top with my expectations. I recommend everyone go out and see this movie, and see the first one if you have not yet.

The first one was amazing. I just wish I knew when 2 would come to theaters, as I will not pirate the movie.

-tch- I've heard boondock saints two is as banal and uninteresting as the first one. Even people who liked the first film are having doubts about it. Although I'll most likely have to wait a while to see if it lives down to the unhype.

You have to have a love for cheesy action flicks to watch them. But anyone that adored the first one should also love the second. Seeing as it follows the same style and has the same exact cast as the original.

Astica doesn't like American movies.

I didn't much care for the first Boondock Saints either.

None of the three movies you mentioned are anything I would put into a category together, except maybe singly the country where they were made.

They were in the category of "American films discussed on MD semi-recently", since we were talking specifically about American films and discussion. I just scrolled down the Movie and TV Series subforum page and picked them up.

Well, if we're talking specifically of American movies, I think films like Paranormal Activity, Hedwig and the Angry Inch and even Zombieland would provide more interesting discussion for tech, industry and viewer reasons. While Boondock saints doesn't really have anything going for it in my opinion, the films above have done something interesting, like re-embrace Henry Jame's concept of the suspense veil to aid in making low budget suspense horror, or challenge the way we view ideas of gender, religion and sexuality in film, or even just put a couple of new spins on what would otherwise be a genre going stale.

Actually, Dance of the Dead was probably a better example than Zombieland. Regardless, it kept us entertained at the marathon.

I enjoyed the film Ordinary People quite recently. There's some decent American film. You listed horror movies. Pff.

:shock: Out of three films, I listed one horror movie, one drama, and one comedy. Have you seen any of them, or were you just assuming?

Also, the Aro website didn't have much to say about Ordinary People. Sales pitch, please?

Cause horror movies are teh shit!

I haven't been able to see Paranormal Activity yet, though I've heard pretty good things. I think I'mma have to coerce somebody to watch Jimi so that we can go.

^Zombieland is a reasonably big Blockbuster-ride film at the moment, so I assumed you would have heard of it. And the suggestion that Hedwig is horror shocks and upsets me :evil:

Also, I will add Ordinary People to my list, just for you. Its behind quite a line though, so it could be a while before I actually watch it.

I loved the first one, and I enjoyed the second. But I spent most of the movie amazed at how old and fat everyone looked. I realize eight years or so makes a difference, but the brothers looked like they had spent five years on heroin and then got off of it and started a BK bender. It really distracted me.

Sean Patrick Flannery looked like he didn't even have a neck anymore. His head looked like it was attached directly to his body.

Boondock Saints was a great movie. But, as a rule, all sequels suck, so I doubt I'll care to see Boondock Saints Two (or Crank Two, for that matter).

... Never put Boondock Saints next to Transformers or Juno in a list, ever again.
