The Simpsons movie


You could argue that this would've been better 15 years ago, but I still think it's best thing they've done in years.

I made the drummer see Bridesmaids with me last night. The victory was better than the movie, which was pretty funny in parts but uneven over all.

Men only suffer through stuff like that in hopes of getting laid. It stems from our acceptance of that universal constant, "You will always pay for sex, either with money, or time."

I like your attitude. Are you single?

sob
have I mentioned that I hate the title of this thread
RIP "The...What Movie did you just finish watching thread" I visited you every day.

and onto...

X-Men: First Class
Did anyone else find the cgi 80s at best? even if Magneto is fucking da bomb, Fassbender needs to get roles where he isn't fucking 15 year olds. though from IMDB I can see he has a busy next 3 years after this role. Good on him, he's the only reason to watch this.

Then again I've seen it twice. It's hard to steal much from this, besides that it's mostly useless in full. Leave your comic ideas at the door, and let them use mutants as story devices for minute time. Some charterers get about 5 minutes of scene time, no kidding, and some are used to much...wow a tornado again! blatantly racist at times, it's surprisingly enjoyable for Fassbender's amazing performance, McAvoy is no Professor X and comes across as the dumbest shit this side of the heap.

anyways. Fassbender. see Fishtank. he's great and look forward to his next films:

all these just announced

# Untitled Jim Jarmusch Project (2012) (pre-production)
# Good Vibrations (2012) (pre-production)
# Prometheus (2012) (filming) .... David
# A Dangerous Method (2011) (completed) .... Carl Jung
# Haywire (2011) (completed)
# Pitch Black Heist (2011) (completed)
# Shame (2011) (completed) .... Brandon

agree completely, it goes on a little long and the depression is grating. So amazingly real I felt torn after watching it. Bardem is amazing, just in his eyes.

I really love Cache, I think it's a great piece of film. Over-hyped if you're expecting something that will change your life, but I love films that grab moments in time and let you think about them. I mean, not to sound regurgitatory (that a word?) but life is moments that we let play over, over again in our minds. These little bits we think are nothing, effect everything. I found it disturbing, I guess it's how you watch it.

Does it really matter what we get from life that makes us happy? or is it the people. that's what the movie about, 2 people who should be happy in life are lost, and it's only when they find each other that the translation is found.

watch it again, let all that shit slide, just watch it.

shocking.

of all the movies that came out that year this was easily in my lower 20. when it got nominated I was aghast. it's a great performance but certainly not a great picture.

but you know they say, something like, the winner of best picture is not the movie you should see.

Essential Killing
Gotta love a movie made just for the experience. Gallo is perfect in this saying absolutely nothing but noises indicating his pain.
Kudos again for making a movie that doesn't force the viewer into any particular political niche.
Although the most politicized among us will do that for themselves.

I'm sure sometime I'll give it a go for the fourth time but there is a hump in that film that is nigh impossible for me to crawl over.

I hate musicals. Why am I watching a musical? Ever watch a movie because a friend swore up and down how great it was, but you're skeptical, but you rent it anyway, but it takes you a month to make yourself watch it? Ugh. I'm dreading it as I'm watching it.

Mamma Mia! Why? This belongs in the "I dare myself to watch it" thread.

I rather enjoy musicals, especially Bollywood "military" musicals. The sheer campiness is entertaining, even though I can't understans a word sung.

The last American made musical I've watched and enjoyed was Chicago, with Queen Latifah and Rene Zellweger

The Road

Grr I knew I shouldn't have watched this cinematic equivalent to a 50 year old emo. That Duvall scene should just have played on for the rest of the movie. 5.9/10

(They totally ate Viggo in the end.)
