from a hockey players perspective this movie is a little bit over the top, but its very well done. a lot of big names too, sean william scott, jay baruchel who is absolutely hilarious, liev schreiber, and the drummer girl from scott pilgrim. good movie

Liev Schreiber did all the voiceovers for HBO's 24/7. Most epic narrator voice next to Morgan Freeman

I watched Inglourious Basterds again last night. That one and 'No Country For Old Men' are pretty close to perfect movies for me
watching this movie now its super funny im loving it so far

Gotta say, I've never watched anything as unsettling as Twin Peaks. It is amazing but I'm shitting my pants, the first 3 episodes of the 2nd season are insane

Easily the scariest show I've seen

Yes! I'm watching Twin Peaks as well. Extremely unsettling atmosphere during the entirety of the show. The pilot episode so far is some of the best television I've ever seen.

+1 for twin peaks. the characters were great. audrey is my favourite  ;D the show always, always kept me guessing. as unsettling and weird as it could sometimes be it could also be just as goofy. i love it.

Hugo

First movie in over 12 years from Scorsese that doesn't feature Leo DiCaprio. Something different from him for sure, couldn't compare it to any of his films. I can see how it won the Oscar for cinematography, amazing lighting throughout. So good that it almost looked computer generated, normally I hate anything CGI or that look of hyper realism, which is why I've been avoiding Tin-Tin, although it does look legit.



My Week with Marilyn

Liked this a lot more than I thought I would. I saw Blue Valentine and wasn't as amazed with Michelle Williams as everyone else seemed to be. She was good in this though.

On the agenda for tomorrow is Take Shelter and Another Earth, from recommendations from this thread.

Heath Ledger was into her. So to speak.

Thank you for reminding me of this film. Couldn't find a good torrent of it earlier this month but I guess DVDs hit the shelves mid-February and a whole swarm popped up this time. And I'm with you on the CGI/hyper realism, but Tin Tin was really good. There were a couple moments where I thought, "Oh that's a cool camera move" and then quickly hate myself inside. I did go into it not expecting much which might've led to my joy from the film.

I have seen both Hugo and Tintin this month, and I must say they were both on top of my list. I was quite amazed when I found out Scorsese directed this one. It was very unlike his other movies, but very touching and fitting for all ages. I also thought the same way as you guys about Tintin, mostly because I grew up with the comic books and the animated series, but I coulnd't help myself from watching. I absolutely loved it, amazing portrayals of all the characters, both in likness as in manners. Andy Serkis is such a boss! It also has one of the best CGI detail I have seen so far.

I'm looking for more film noir with similarities to this because i loved it. Jack Nicholoson at his best.

If you're lookin for Film Noir type of movies, might as well start with the one that started it. Citizen Kane. UNLESS you've seen it already.
Hahaha Citizen Kane definitely didn't start Film Noir, it's not even a Noir.. I would say that it influenced some of the early Noir Films though.  And to codithou, The Asphalt Jungle, Touch of Evil, Where the Sidewalk Ends, The Maltese Falcon, and Stanley Kubrick's The Killing are a good place to start.
Thanks I'll look into those! I love every Kubrick film I've seen so I'll start with The Killing. And unfortunately I haven't seen Citizen Kane yet but I plan on watching it soon.

Its long, and slow. It gets lots of praise for the immensity of its sets and use of depth within frames. Just to see early innovative filmmaking is very cool but dont go in expecting a mind blowing movie.

I watched Goon and Bridesmaids yesterday

Dare I say, I laughed more in Bridesmaids than in Goon. Both were funny, the dumbness of Sean William Scotts character put me off a but, Liev Schrieber is the fucking man

agreed. The reasons it gets a lot of praise are the reasons its just another movie today. Back then the film innovated all these camera and story telling techniques which pushed film making in a way that hadn't been done before. But now its innovations are so common place in literally every tv show and film that it will probably seem very lacklusture if you discover the film today.

Thanks! I think I'm pretty good at appreciating a film for it's time frame. Things like that are what have been driving me search for older films lately.

Citizen Kane is still a great film, because great storytelling is great storytelling. If you have a hard time appreciating old movies because of the antiquated speech patterns and slow pacing however, you probably won't be that impressed by it. It's definitely worth seeing for anyone who's interested in movies though.

I agree but I will say that it's completely overrated. The Trial and Touch of Evil are way better films by Orson Welles. I never understood why The Trial didn't get that much love.

pretty bleak movie.  i liked it.  had it's flaws but nice to see a film that on the surface seems like an action adventure movie take on some hard hitting metaphysical questions on a non pussyish way

i liked Joe Carnahan's NARC.  glad to see him getting more work

I was in NYC for the last week and saw a couple great films at Film Forum.

Long but so damn good. Especially in the theater with the new remastered print though.


I urge everyone to see this in the theater. Completely engrossing from start to finish.
I thought it wasnt just him solo, shouldve stuck with my og thought.

Considering how crappy the prequels were compared to the original trilogy, I'm curious how this project turned out

Rewatched it for a paper I wrote on it for a film analysis class. I love this movie so much.

Take Shelter

Amazing. Pretty much the only word I can use to describe it. Left me very uneasy and as a thriller, was really effective.

Michael Shannon is the fucking man



Highly recommend. I'll be watching this again soon
