I don't really think there was any torture.  Torture is having your fingernails ripped out one by one, having your teeth pulled out, arms and legs broken, having, electric wires attached to your genitals, being burned with cigarettes, having your family thrown into a woodchipper infront of you. 

Who do people think these guys are, and that if you just keep asking them questions they'll answer? Meanwhile they have been trained highly in anti-interrogation methods.
I wish I could waterboard you through the internet, then maybe you'd shut up.

I'd rather be waterboarded than actually tortured, soft cunt.
Do you find it hard being this stupid? I imagine it would be difficult going to school; getting all wrong answers all the time, not to mention all the kids hating you for not just being an idiot, but an obnoxious idiot. I always feel bad for people who have nothing going for them.

Like I said, you're soft cunt.

Doesn't get amazing reviews but I loved it. Scene in the fog on the beach was brilliant, and I wish Robin Williams did a few more dramatic roles, this along with One Hour Photo (he does creepy particularly well) and Good Will Hunting proves he was real depth as an actor, but he continually goes for shitty comedy roles.

I agree fully with you on all of these points, but Mrs. Doubtfire is pure gold. Some of his comedy roles aren't the best, but for some reason, I will always hold Mrs. Doubtfire near and dear to my heart.

He definitely was creepy as shit in One Hour Photo and just watched Good Will Hunting again recently and he really is awesome in that.

Fun factoid: In Insomnia, Al Pacino actually forced himself to stay awake for several days at a time during shooting to make his role more believable.

Boyan, you're my favorite Belgian that's not a waffle or a beer.   :-*

Thanks, I really enjoyed it being familiar with the comic book, and part 2 isn't even supposed to be released yet (january 29). DC is really killing it with their "DC Universe Animated Original Movies
"

Took a screenshot to get me a new wallpaper:

beasts of the southern wild.

set on the other side of the levees in Louisiana and narrated by a 6 year old. It's a siiick film.

anyone watch the Decalogue? Kieslowski directed it as a Polish TV mini series in 89. It consists of 10 one hour films based on the 10 commandments, set in a Warsaw housing compound. I can't stop watching these! The cinematography is stunning and the stories are intense.

I watched Django on Friday and loved it, for me it was better than Inglorious Basterds and probably his best film since Pulp Fiction. I'm really enjoying this kind of period epic Tarantino, hope he delves into history more with his next couple of films. Also thought Jamie Foxx was great, I know the focus has been heavily on DiCaprio (who was incredible) and Samuel L. Jackson but Foxx plays Django with so much cool and style, so badass.

Holy Motors was super good.  Really interesting but sort of made no sense.  Still a great watch though.

Really liked Dredd, but not seeing him without a helmett (except briefly in the dark in the beginning), made it seem like he was not human, kinda robocop-like

Watched it the other night and I completely disagree with you. Felt there wasn't much to it at all, not much character or plot development at all. Just fight through a tower block (which The Raid does much better, great hand to hand fight scenes). For some reason it reminded me of Alice in Wonderland, felt they just walked through the entire film and i never felt any tension. Very disappointed with it.

Link?  Still waiting on Part 1 in my Netflix.

Watching the first part now, so good. It's weird not hearing Kevin Conroy as batman/ bruce wayne though

downloaded a shit ton of movies today:
-Argo
-Silver linings playbook
-Carnage
-Perks of being a wallflower
-This is 40
-Safety not guaranteed
-Chinese Zodiac (Jackie Chan)

Watched Safety not guaranteed which was pretty good, although sometimes I felt like it was weird just to be weird.
The new Jackie Chan flick was a giant MEH.  Jackie is getting old so there's less fighting and more obviously fake action scenes

It was a bit of a trip seeing young Harrison Ford out of nowhere. Good film though, obviously a theme that's pretty resonant these days.

Ah, greetings, greetings, and salutations. I beg your forgiveness. My tardiness was unavoidable. Rava, my love. Elaine, my dear friend.. And you must be Jerry. Lord of the manor. Ah, my liege. A pleasure to serve you.

Safety Not Guaranteed was really good. Aubrey Plaza is my soulmate. She definitely kills it in Parks And Rec too!

One of my all time favourites.

Pretty interesting that in the Will Smith movie "Enemy of the State" has a bunch of connections

"Enemy of the State connections

The 1998 surveillance-corruption-thriller film Enemy of the State (which also stars Gene Hackman) has thematic connections to The Conversation. According to film critic Kim Newman, Enemy of the State could be construed as a "continuation of The Conversation."
On Newman's analysis, Gene Hackman's paranoid, technologically brilliant character in Enemy of the State, who uses the pseudonym Brill, closely resembles Harry Caul in The Conversation. He dons the same translucent raincoat worn by Caul, and Brill's cage-like workshop is nearly identical to Caul's workshop in The Conversation. Enemy of the State also uses a still from The Conversation for Brill's National Security Agency file photo.
Enemy of the State also has other references to The Conversation, according to Newman, including a scene which is highly similar to The Conversation's opening surveillance scene in San Francisco's Union Square."

I've never laughed as hard as I have at a Quentin Tarantino movie:

Carnage was hilarious.
I was laughing pretty much the whole way through, and as I predicted, Waltz's character was my favorite

Showed my girlfriend The Kings Speech for the first time, great film.



Watching "Beginners" tomorrow night, very stoked



Saw the Hobbit. What an absolute disappointment. Felt like a Harry Potter movie. CGI farting trolls and shitty bathroom jokes throughout. I really didn't like it.

Lincoln and Zero Dark Thirty are next in line to see. High hopes for both.
