Yes, forget Eraserhead.  It was weird for weird's sake and did nothing for me at all except make me wonder about my friends who suggested it.

Saw Devil's Advocate, shit was pretty good, I wish it got a little darker but that's what makes a thriller a thriller. It's like scary but not really but kinda sorta not at all a little bit completely

1. Mud
2. The Place Beyond The Pines
3. Prisoners

The Place Beyond the Pines sticks out as the best Ive seen in a long time.  It's amazingly written, super unique and keeps the viewer enthralled with the story.  Even if I half knew what to expect next in the plot a few times I was always in awe and satisfied with how the story and themes were explored espcially the suprising dramatic ways in which characters decisions intersect and affect the realities of others ("doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father?" ).  The film is much more than just a story and really does touch on deeper spiritual and psychological levels than most.  I loved how it was not overdramatized or overracted - the editing is incredible ("Its not what you put in. Its what you leave out").  Hadnt been so impressed with a movie in a long time.  fucking good film

Also watched Our Idiot Brother and it was surprisingly a really good comedy with well developed characters - my wife and I both loved it, laughed my ass off

Anyone see The Counselor yet?  I'm a big McCarthy fan, but it's getting terrible reviews.

Eyes Wide Shut. Stanley Kubrick movies never cease to amaze.

You can watch it with the link above, it's split into four parts on that website.

The Counselor!
  I saw it today and loved it. It is getting really bad reviews but if you like C.M's writing you will love it. Basically you have to be prepared for long segments of dialog between awesome scenes of brutal violence. But if you can't handle that then there's always Machete Kills. I think the most brutal death scene in a movie this year is in The Counselor.

Speaking of Kubrick, I saw Full Metal Jacket and it was okay, thought it would get a little crazier from what a friend had told me but there were some moments that were insane, I ain't mad at it

i saw prisoners, it was amazing.

a place beyond the pines was really good, too, but prisoners is the movie of the year thus far.

Stanley Kubrick wasn't one to overtly put everything in your face, but that's why his films have such longevity. The cinematography as a whole really tells the story equally as much as the characters do with their verbal explanations. In FMJ he captures the whole process of dehumanization very well, and he does an amazing job at giving you visual clues that subtly compliment the process IMO. The same is especially true of Eyes Wide Shut, taking into consideration that everything Stanley Kubrick introduces into his work has nothing to do with coincidence and everything to do with the necessary preparation of making sure that everything that went into the film can be absorbed by the viewer to best receive the message he's conveying. If you like Kubrick's work, I would suggest watching Eyes Wide Shut as it is deemed by himself as his best work.

True, I actually spoke on that flick earlier in the thread, I watched it at like 3 in the morning and couldn't sleep until it was light out, I was so fucking uncomfortable because I could see everything in the movie happening, it was too real, and I went and read an analysis online to answer some questions on stuff and it brought everything full circle, shit was insane, especially after you find out he died 5 days after the final edit was dropped off

been on a kubrick binge myself this last week. I had to watch Eyes Wide Shut three times and it keeps getting better. I love how you can watch his movies again and again and still get something new out of it. I guess that's just his meticulous nature. Also watched some documentaries about him. Life in pictures is tight:

also if you're into film analyses check out this guys channel. he does a lot of Kubrick stuff

'rumblefish' is the dope show! you're thinking it's gonna be like 'the outsiders' but it's a grown up artsy take on white hoods in tulsa circa 50-60s.

The Place Beyond The Pines came out in 2012.

It was really good, I thought it did pretty damn well at being an 'epic'. If the second act was cut 20 minutes or so though it could have been a masterpiece. The kid who played Gosling's son is super rad, I have a feeling he will have a very awesome career ahead of him.

I've been watching a bunch of horror leading up to Halloween, kind of a tradition to watch horror movies through the month of October.

I've watched Halloween III twice so far. It's so fucking good. Absurd like a good John Carpenter story and full of creepy gore and glorious 80s cheese.

Saw Prisoners last night.  Great movie but didn't live up to the hype.
I wanted the maze thing to make more sense. Plus Hugh jackass over acted the shit out of it.

Place beyond the pines was the best movie I've seen this year.

Evil Dead remake second.

The worst movie I've seen recently, without fail, 100%, was Trance by Danny Boyle.  Fucking stinker!!!!!!!!
