american psych or american psycho?

I just happened to watch american psycho at random yesterday too and the shit was hectic, enjoyable though, some parts didn't add up for me as I'd liked though

You guys watch it on Netflix?  Cause I just did too lol. 

I didn't like it that much though.  Thought Bale could have done a better job I guess?  Kinda just hated the way he spoke.


I suck at SLAP.

Inside Llewyn Davis didn't have much plot wise but the atmosphere and acting were pretty damn great.

Lol yea, watching it again right now actually, I thought he did pretty nicely

I just wanted some closure on some scenes, it's also in movies like this that I realize you could get away with ALOT of shit back in the early 90s/late 80s

Yeah, I looked up some interpretations of it after watching it and I guess most people believe that it was all in his head and he is just losing his mind.  Yet, some people argue that all of the name switches and what not might have caused him to get away with it.  It was definately all in his head IMO.

Dude, I wish I was in my twenties during the 80's. 

Also, you are right, he did a good job with it, I just didn't like the way he spoke.  Maybe it was the dialogue.  Preferred his role in other movies like The Prestige for instance.

Oh, idk maybe, the part where he's at the ATM and it tells him to feed it the stray cat is a good vouch that it's all in his head lol, Bale has always had kind of a weird way of talking, like he has a shitload of spit in his mouth at all times and there's nothing he can do about it ever

at the end i was thinking what happened. I guess he could get away with it. But alot of people are saying it was in his head. But I didnt expect this film to be a about a serial killer haha. I watched it cause of a article that compared him to "lord disick" from  the kardashians show. I agree he is a douche like scott.

It's because he's Welsh and the use of vowels is still somewhat confusing to him.

Scott Disick has based his whole look off Bale in American Psycho.

he wants to be him soooooo bad.



you guys should read the book or watch some of the other movies based on Brett Easton Ellis' novels (Rules of Attraction, Less Than Zero & The Informers).

on second thought, just check out his books.

Absolutely excellent in every way.  Awesome performance from everyone involved and Spike Jonze seems like one of the few left with an original idea in Hollywood.

For the skate dorks, Eric Koston has a split second cameo at a picnic.

Yeah, Her was amazing.  Just saw it two hours ago.  One of the most well-acted films I've seen in a minute.  Very funny, emotional charged.  I love films where I leave the theater in silence, chewing on the residual splendor of fine craftsmanship.  The soundtrack was very atmospheric and pleasant as well.

Saw Inside Llweyn Davis.  It had some potential, but pretty much sucked.  I don't think I enjoy movies very much anymore.

I finally got around to seeing The Place Beyond The Pines and I loved it. I feel like there were so many layers to it and I've been thinking about it all day. I love movies that lead to great discussions about its meaning.

Saw Blue Jasmine last night. Movie was good even though the story was kind of whatever but I always like movies that take place in SF and you just see the odd things in it. Cate Blanchett can sure act her ass off. She totally deserved the Golden Globe last night.

The Coen Brothers are hit and miss for me.  I think their films are wonderfully crafted, the scripts are usually hilarious, thoughtful and unique, but I feel like they rely on ambiguity as a stylistic staple a bit too heavily.  Case in point, A serious Man, No Country, Barton Fink, and I'm sure a few others I'm not thinking of, just kind of meander along and right into the credits, where you're left trying to piece together bits and pieces to come up with some kind of comprehensive statement, usually disappointingly.  Don't get me wrong, I love the above films, and perhaps am out of line listing No Country in there, but for the laymen going into a Coen Bro's film with no context for their previous work, you're left scratching your head at the end. 

Haven't seen Inside Llewyn Davis yet.  From what I've gathered, I'm probably in store for more of the same ambiguity, the abrupt ending, the head scratching.

12 Years A Slave, both Fassbender and Ejiofor put in superb performances. In my opinion it's one of the most important films in years.

Meh.  Not going to bother.  Why is making a film about the horrors of slavery any different now then it was 10, 20, 50 years ago?  -Edit.  Well they didn't make many films about this 50 years ago but...nevermind, I personally just don't really want to sit through a bunch of whipping and raping in my free time.  I already have a healthy enough level of the white man's guilt.

LesbianPUNCH, you pretty much nailed Inside Llewyn Davis without even seeing it.  There are a few laughs, some scattered witty dialogue, a whole lot of atmosphere, yet it fails to deliver anything of substance.  They managed to waste so much time building potential directions that the film could take, only to pass them by intentionally, bringing the film back to the same path it started on and then it's over.  Sometimes I enjoy a good head scratching movie.  PT Anderson, does it well, the Coen brothers, do not.

Yes.  Paul Thomas Anderson can get away with the ambiguous nature of his narratives, because the journey he takes you on in his films is so strange and beautiful.  I think you could probably chalk that up in part to the strength of the actors in his films.  Daniel Day-Lewis, Paul Dano (a bit overdone but still strong,) Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, and Joaquin Phoenix (who is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors in modern cinema.  I love that he literally obliterated his own career for a faux-documentary of self-destruction, only to come back and star in some of the better movies in recent memory.) 

Back to the point, the Coen's are kind of wearing my patience thin.  Hell, I'll take whatever they offer in the hopes that another Raising Arizona, Burn After Reading, Fargo, or No Country looms around the corner.  Revelation:  Coens, let's see another comedy.  You do them so well.

I haven't caught Llewyn Davis yet, but I see what everyone is saying somewhat. I thought a serious man and true grit were fantastic though. Barton Fink I think was their miss for me. Seemed like a lot of inside jokes I didn't quite get.

In that case see it for the story and the performances, wouldn't judge it till you've watched it.

Agreed. Especially since you mentioned you dig P.T Anderson. Check out 12 years, it's for sure the best thing I've seen this year.

Yeah, it really was one of the greatest Ive seen in a long time - nothing was overstated and the narrative and acting were flawless, really loved what the director chose to show and what to not overdramatize.  I was in awe for most of the movie, wonder why they didnt release it closer to awards season, seems lots of lesser films are getting hype - would be awesmoe to see Pines get best picture. Its a film that "haunts" one after in a good way and really pushes the audience into a contemplative space after viewing. check out some of the interviews with Derek Cianfrance about it
