New title's a little generic, but can't wait. Even though there's no connection, Don Jon got me real interested in this new wave of actors turned directors. laugh.gif

It's a shame they never figured out what do to with her like Poehler.

Watching Lars and the Real Girl...this movie is that "indie funny." I never thought I would like it, but I do like it. Ryan Gosling has jumped to one of the actors that counts as "that movies got cast."

 

Alright, I'm not as much of a film critic as most, I enjoi movies, but I ain't going ham on critiques, not my bag.

 

 

I really liked that movie. I'm a sucker for plot devices, and Bianca was one of the cleanest plot devices I've ever seen. The way it represented him overcoming his fear of relationships, it was so human, so real. The way the town showed their love of Lars through Bianca. The scene where Bianca died and everyone seem legit sad.

 

The acting was superb. I am now a fan of Ryan Gosling after that movie. So subtle, so real, so emotional.

So many Bollywood movies so it's nearly impossible to find that title now. 

I'm pretty sure you've just described 85% of Bollywood films laugh.gif

No one told me Running Man was such a good movie. I was completely caught off gaurs. I'm constantly surprised by the storylines in 80s movies, overtly political and surprisingly relevant. The underlying tones of dystopian futures, but in a less dramatic way, like their drama lies in the extreme caricature in which they display the setting. They tended to capture the underlying nature of what it means to be an American during that time period, hyper masculinity, consumerism, selfishness, isolation. Underlying themes. Running Man is an excellent movie for the politically conscious.


The use of characters is brilliant. Computer guy was there to crack the code and give it to the girl. Black dude was there to save Arnold's life and tell them what to do with the code. Old girl herself was a good foil for Arnold, the classic 'force you to see my humanity' they did that through an a dual show if force.

It's cool seeing what limited ideas they had of technology, not very inventive but very 'creative' the way they adapted old tech and made it adaptive to their needs. They had an old lady cursing to show crowds turn in favor of Richards.

The relationship between Arnold and old girl was pretty well told. Moments like when he slowed down to save her and grabbed her hand are the moments when they take the 'show don't tell' philosophy of writing to heart.

They slowly revealed the diabolical nature if the sport slowly. They didn't give up the full story in the first act. They gave you the world little bit by little bit.

I even liked the little quips Arnold had at the end of each kill. 'Chainsaw had to split' ish slayed me.

Fantastic movie. Ahead of its time in many ways. Credit to Steven King for writing a great story. And the casting of Richard Dawson as Killian was unexpected, but worked out brilliantly.

So, anything for the princess, we sat down and watched it. I have no idea how, or why, but we both enjoyed it.

It's just.....mindless, entertainment. Like a town anyone would want to live in. Iono.

I felt the same way with Sandlers Just Go With It. I can watch that multiple times and enjoy it.

glad you mentioned that, it was the one thing that bothered me as well.

Sometimes this works, but very rarely and usually in a narration fashion, not like in House of Cards for a whole movie. Especially by relatively unknown actors. Feels very forced, and it's a crutch. When you have to break the 4th wall to explain something you are proving your story and acting aren't enough to tell a cohesive narrative.

Hol' up, just heard a piece of a trailer for Transcendence, where I heard Morgan Freemen say something like "... the end of a primitive, organic life, and the dawn of a more advanced stage. Will this transcendence be mankind's greatest achievement, or his greatest threat?"

THAT'S what Transcendence is about? Sign me up!! Lego!

I know he's got bills to pay & doing crap like x-men helps, but I can't wait to see Fassbender do real work like Macbeth. The upcoming release also features Marion Cotillard as Lady Macbeth. First images below.

Apparently the characters break the 4th wall in the Jersey Boys stage show, so I can see why they used it from that standpoint

Bruh, I think that was the ending to a into the Wormhole episode. Least I saw him say the same thing when I flipped on Nat Geo one day laugh.gif I hate the concept of Transcendence. All that does is keep consciousness/spirit stuck in a machine incapable of experiencing the other dimensions.

So I'm pretty far away from the t/v and at like an acute angle so I"m basically at the side of it flipping through the guide looking for a movie to watch. I think I see something that says Motel For Drugs so I'm like oooh I never saw that before. Takes me like 3 min to realize I'm watching Hotel for Dogs. laugh.gifmean.gif @ me.

Is Jersey Boys really based off the play? Cuz I remember commercials for it and they were singing songs and it looked pretty pretending to be in the 50s in a bad way (as I think most plays are bad and not worth the time). *Goes to watch trailer now*

Cold in July looks dope. Although I've seen Michael C. Hall play a ***** and a lil ***** in a few other movies first since Dexter it's hard for me to accept and believe that he is when I see him in other stuff now, especially if his son is threatened. I'm just expecting Dexter to put on the thermal and gloves and go to work laugh.gif

Also as far as that complaint goes about it being 1989 Texas and the music being techno that's just the music chosen for the trailer. Music is only suppose to apply to the period the movie is set in when the music is played within the story like if a guy turns on the radio it should be dated in that time. A trailer can have w/e soundtrack or score the director wants. Not seeing the hipster hate there.

Well not really. Consciousness in a machine leads to immortality. With that in mind you could live long enough until technology reaches the point you can put yourself in a body that is capable of experience every single dimension or at least theoretically that's how it goes.

They actually covered that part of the concept in a Through/Beyond the Wormhole ep laugh.gif Think it was the one dealing with how do we live on after the world ends or sun dies out, the whole moving to other planets, adapting to the environment, and transferring your mind in a machine like body was an alternative.





EDIT: I'll catch Jersey Boys just for Luciano and Walken now. I get it though, period piece about an important music group like the others before it.

But yeah...it kinda, feels like settling. The opposite of ascending or enlightenment. You don't discover more, you just coldly get everything, and lose humanity. At least Dr. Manhattan got to fly to Mars and create life.

I put this in the same category as welcome home Roscoe, basic story, poor acting (they can do better but they're clearly not trying) but the chemistry and random one off jokes between the cast is hilarious.

I went on a binge and that series was amazing. I'm ashamed that I didn't drink the kool-aid when it was available. The storytelling, the writing, the action, it had everything you could want from a show.

It's a really good movie. I enjoyed it. I wouldn't throw around great, but it was good. People always want to say great, epic, etc. But I'm not a prisoner of the moment, but your money wouldn't be wasted if you went to go see it.

It's one of the best superhero movies the last several years. I've seen plenty of rankings having it behind only The Avengers and Iron Man as the best Marvel superhero movie.

It's also just a well made action movie. The action and CGI is great, the story and content is relevant (the cost of freedom, government surveillance and power, etc.). It's got some laughs, pretty women, it's got Anthony Mackie (WE MADE IT!!) It's a really good/great summer blockbuster.
