wow been watching tons of family guy lately. might do a pirates marathon though
Jenny it has been a while since this post... did you eventually see Snowpiercer? It finally arrived on Netflix for me yesterday, but I had rented it from Google and watched the snot out of over a 48 hour period some months ago.Thanks for the update, I've been keeping my eye on this and want to see it.
No, I haven't watched it yet -- i watched about ten minutes of it, kind of lost interest, and never got back to it. Maybe I need to just give half an hour and see if that catches my interest.Jenny it has been a while since this post... did you eventually see Snowpiercer?

I do love Korean films.
It's worth a half hour I think. Very quirky. I love Tilda Swinton to bits in this one.No, I haven't watched it yet -- i watched about ten minutes of it, kind of lost interest, and never got back to it. Maybe I need to just give half an hour and see if that catches my interest.
Ironically, I did start watching Transsiberian last night and plan to keep going with that one. Talking about wicked train movies and all...
I picked up Lady Vengeance on DVD last month but haven't seen it yet. (I've seen Oldboy.) I also grabbed 3 Extremes (which I've already seen) and a Tale of Two Sisters w/ subtitles (which I have also seen), and Dark Water (the original, not the shitty remake that I saw last month and then realized that I think I watched a few years ago and thought it was shitty then too and somehow forgot that I had seen it).
They're taking it right out of the comic book.Batman Vs Superman - New Dawn or something...
Pretty brilliant. Everything I wanted and more. (as far as comic book movies go)
Love the bod on superman.
The most outrageous ending - how could they do that?!?!?!?
I gave it 4.5/5 stars I think.I don't like Tilda Swinton and gave We Need to Talk About Kevin a bad review. The editing was bad and it was just a blatant film. The best thing it did, as an afterthought, is further show how one can sympathize with parents... Especially ones that have had an enormous responsibility fall on their shoulders.
Ahh, there were some scenes which I were thinking seemed somewhat short. But I was surprised it was as long as it was, or as good as it was. Some of the other comic movies I've seen recently have been cheap and poor... I'm glad I gave this one a go.They're taking it right out of the comic book.
The Ultimate Edition is better than the Theatrical; they edited out too much connecting information for the theater release. There are still issues with it, but the unedited cut is better.
Yeah, I'm strongly ambivalent about the movie, in terms of being disappointed with the tone and wishing characterization and stuff might have been better, but I do enjoy watching some of the plot sequences... and like I said, the extended edition really helps flesh out stuff so it's not just so plot-jumpy. I am usually that way with movies by Zack Snyder -- I will still watch Sucker Punch periodically, but at the same time I want to throw stuff at the screen.Ahh, there were some scenes which I were thinking seemed somewhat short.

Meh.. Some aspects were mildly 'thrilling', but it was pretty slow, and although it was a bit boggling there was no major mystery reveal.The Box is a 2009 American psychological thriller film based on the 1970 short story "Button, Button" by Richard Matheson, which was previously adapted into an episode of the 1980s iteration of The Twilight Zone. The film was written and directed by Richard Kelly and stars Cameron Diaz and James Marsden as a couple who receive a box from a mysterious man played by Frank Langella who offers them one million dollars if they press the button sealed within the dome on top of the box. However, once the button has been pushed, someone will die.
It's more of a philosophical movie, with allusions to Sartre's "No Exit" -- and it doesn't really answer questions. I think Donnie Darko (same director) felt a little more fulfilling.Erm, yea more or less.

Was alright.. Like a modern version of THX 1138In a dystopian world where emotions don't exist, two people (Kristen Stewart, Nicholas Hoult) fall in love when they regain their feelings from a mysterious disease, causing tensions between them and their society.
I didn't really know she could actually act until I saw her in "Clouds of Sils Maria." She's done a lot of over-popularized shite in her career.Equals

I would have enjoyed it much more had it not involved Kristen Stewart's face.
I find her impossible to take seriously after Twilight.
Lol, yea.. I managed the sit through, so there's something..I
I'll take as a hesitant positive on the movie, if one can handle Stewart.
was wondering if it was worth a watch. I like Hoult, he's got an appealing earnestness about himself. (He's actually the kid -- grown up now -- that starred in "About a Boy" with Hugh Grant, I think.)
Johnny Drop is old and bald...While his brother Bill (Benedict Cumberbatch) remains a powerful leader in the Massachusetts Senate, Irish hoodlum James "Whitey" Bulger (Johnny Depp) continues to pursue a life of crime in 1970s Boston. Approached by FBI agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton), the lawman convinces Whitey to help the agency fight the Italian mob. As their unholy alliance spirals out of control, Bulger increases his power and evades capture to become one of the most dangerous gangsters in U.S. history.
