Contagion, directed by Steven Soderbergh.  It's another ensemble piece similar to Traffic about the global transmission and social breakdown caused by a deadly viral disease.

****/5; Really liked it!

A struggling actor decides he's going to commit suicide in the next few days. But before he does, he secures a crew to film his final days on Earth, recording his very last thoughts, feelings and fears.
Watched it on Netflix.  One of the best roles I've seen of Paul Rudd. 
Adam Scott from "Parks and Rec" and "Party Down" has a part too.

Yep, this was sick.

I watched Bernie at the weekend and thought it was pretty good.

Saw the new Star Wars Trek last night. It was pretty good, if you ignore some overly obvious "twists", ridiculous fights, and JJ Abrams' obsession with lens flare. A nice nod to old TOS movies.

The best part, though, was the architecture and design of future SF and future London. Quite believable and very pretty. I want to download it just to freeze frame through those parts and look at everything (and imagine skating it).

I liked Star Trek 2, thought Benedict Cumberbatch stole the movie. One hell of a character, not to spoil anything.

I still hate 3D, literally see no benefit in storytelling with it. There is a scene with Kirk and Pike in a bar, regular shot with two characters sitting and talking. Oh wait it's 3D, lets throw massive fucking wine bottles in the middle of the frame and put them out of focus, that'll look great.

I just hope Star Wars VII isn't 3D but of course it will be, $$$

I thought lens flare was kept to a minimum throughout, it wasn't that noticeable in comparison to the first movie or Super 8.
I thoroughly enjoyed it, Cumberbatch was incredible though, and the quality of the acting throughout the supporting cast was surprisingly high.
skating is all about choosing your outfit very deliberately, going out in public. looking super sick. and then riding your board a little bit

HATE!

Just watched The Iceman last night.  All the performances were good but the story felt very rushed and they left out some parts of his life that would have been really interesting to see if you know the story of Richard Kuklinski.

True, it wasn't nearly as bad as the first one, but that was pretty much a two-hour-long lens flare. It was still super distracting to me in any scene on the Enterprise.

And yeah, Cumberpatch was fucking awesome. That dude is so menacing.

nobody cares what you thought about iron man 3.

Classic beer keg peg leg, being a nobhead as always

Oh yeah, just noticed this one...my gf and a lot of her friends work in public health, and they all say this is the most accurate pandemic movie that's ever been made. For what that's worth...apparently it gets brought up a lot in that circle. And they hired some public health bad asses as consultants.

Just watched the new remake of Evil Dead, they cut out some good parts from the original but overall I quite enjoyed it.

Got to see an advanced screening of this. Pretty hilarious. Danny McBride comes through with some big laughs, as long as your not sick of his cocky character, which I for one am not. It's completely absurd, so don't go in there thinking the movie is going to make a ton of sense, but do go see it if you want to see Jonah Hill get butt-raped by a demon. There's one back and forth between McBride and Franco involving a porno magazine that had me in tears.

I had been meaning to watch Contagion after seeing Side Effects. Glad this thread reminded me to get around to it, I really enjoyed it. Soderbergh knows how to ratchet up the tension.


Star Trek was alright. Cumberbatch did super well, but it's so weird to have these movies now where you have that strange mixture between really massive catastrophic events and little one-liners thrown in throughout. Yeah, we just flew sideways and ricocheted in our space ship through a narrow crevasse, let's throw little quips at each other 5 seconds later! Enjoyed it though.

The most memorable part of going to see it though was just how fucking stupid that Chronicles of Riddick trailer was.

very, very disturbing. It's perfect if you're into fucked up movies. I think that the director was very influenced by David Lynch.

Saw 2 amazing movies yesterday. The first being this one



Really caught me off guard by how funny it was. I already want to watch it again, the main characters Dad was such a fantastic character. Really great movie.

The second



Been waiting to see this for a long time as I couldn't convince my girl to go see it in the theatres. I didn't really know what to expect as I wasn't all that stoked on the directors first film "Blue Valentine".

This is a fantastic movie though, pretty much start to finish. I think they could have maybe paced it a little different as the middle section with Cooper was a little lacking but there was so much stuff done right.

One of the best of the year for sure

Seen this a dozen times, but caught it on cinemax. This scene is brilliant.





Really wish Pachino/De Niro had more films together.

Just watched Lars and the Real Girl. That was pretty good.
Or Holy Motors. Holy Motors was really fuckin' good. Some crazy french stuff with naked crazy dude, snake demon sex, talking limos, a guy married to a monkey, and tons more. Go watch it.

Thumbs up to all the movies on this page. So psyched they used that SALEM song in A Place Beyond The Pines.

I was totally stumped on what to watch tonight, looks like MUD + The Iceman.
