The Wolf of Wall Street   :o

did not expect much from this one due to the trailer and Scorsese's latest flicks not really doing much for me (except The Departed which was fucking incredible)...but this movie was ridiculously entertaining and very well acted and directed.  There is no way this kind of film would have been released 15-20 years ago it is so raw and explores some of the most vile fucked up characters ever depicted in a mainstream film.  Really put the depraved Wall Street coke culture on display (Goldman Sachs, fuck you!).  Jonah Hill was disgusting and hilarious, really cool to see him branching out into new territory as a character actor, he must have be hyped to work on this one I can see it will open up lots of new opportunities for him.  Dicaprio was great as well.  GET THE LUDES!!!!  Yacht scene was awesome, and the long shot after Dicaprio's "I Aint Leavin" speech was ridiculous.

I was surprised a film like this was funded and produced, made me wonder if Hollywood will ever put out an expose on this level concerning the attitudes and lives of some of the "old money" aristocratic class in America and Europe- doubt it

Fuck "Her".  But seriously, I cried.  Spike Jonze made one of the most touching films I've ever seen.  Goddamn, to think that dude started out in Sonic Youth music videos and photographing Jeremy Klein.  Now he makes masterpieces that make you think about life and shit...  Fuck you, Spike, you damn genius.

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.


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



Thanks for that link. I really enjoyed listening to his dedication and ideas with the film. I loved how insistent he was on how specific the actors had to be for each role.

Wolf of Wall Street and Dallas Buyers Club - both really good.

I saw Her the other day, incredible film. I love the movie's take on future technology and how technology plays into society. The mise en scene is amazing in all aspects. I recommend seeing it.

I finally got so seeing Fruitvale Station tonight.  Such a powerful film.  Cannot believe the Oscars totally snubbed it this year..

it's not new or anything but asides the title and it's soft bigotry of low [jump] expectations, White Men Can't Jump is one of my favorites. rosie perez was young and good looking, the dialogue was funny and hustling basketball is an interesting occupation. i wish everyone watched it so they'd get my references and not look at me like a retarded guppy.

I don't mean to toot my own horn by posting myself skating in a thread about movies (there isn't a horn to be tooted because a 5050 on that thing is weak) but anyway, skip to about 50 seconds into the video and see if you can hear what an onlooker says at the one minute mark, he would have gotten your reference shark tits


dude knows what's up. and while not the hardest trick on that i wouldn't say 50 is weak either.

Can't wait the re-make of Hellraiser.


99% or horror remakes are horrible and unnecessary.  notable exceptions are the thing, the fly, maniac, a few others.  i wouldn't hold your breath on this one, the original is perfect as is.

The OG one really is badass.  Those effects are still super gnarly and probably rivaled only by the transformation scene in An American Werewolf in London in terms of true special effects done on a human.  The first sequel is pretty great as well.  Then it immediately jumped the shark.

I finally just saw HER and it was pretty damn good. Just a nice movie that touched on the viewers emotions. I am sure so many people can relate to this movie if they ever have been in a relationship......or not. Great stand out parts by Joaquin and Scarlet.

Am I the only one who was a little let down by Her? I was expecting to really, really like it but felt like it only touched the surface of the idea without going too deep into it. Great performances and all, good movie, but the dialogue and emotions could have been much stronger. Maybe I'm just thinking this way because I just recently watched some old favorite's that are dialogue/emotion heavy before I saw it - The Before trilogy, Mike Leigh's Naked, Oslo August 31st, Happiness. Also, the ending went a little too off the end for me.

Yeah. I did feel like by the end of it, they just made it out to be a simple love story without really getting to the technical parts of it being with an OS. I actually had to look up the ending since I sort of didn't get it and just thought there'd be more to it than that. I knew there was going to be some sort of a breakup at one point but wasn't sure how. Like I said....it just seemed like a love story by the end of it. Acting made up for it though.

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.
Watched it yesterday and thought it was a well done movie. Don't have any white mans guilt (germans suffer from other guilts).

piece of shit, straight up.

The Counselor.

Got lots of bad reviews from typical publications, but it was amazing. Cormac McCarthy wrote the script, it's bleak and literary.



Look at this quote from it - "I have no wish to paint the world in colors more somber than those it wears but as the world gives way to darkness it becomes more and more difficult to dismiss the understanding that the world is in fact oneself. It is a thing which you have created, no more, no less. And when you cease to be so will the world. There will be other worlds. Of course. But they are the worlds of other men and your understanding of them was never more than an illusion anyway. Your world, the only one that matters, will be gone. And it will never come again."

Best film of 2013 for sure.

Was a bit weary about that movie to be honest. Was super stoked for where the wild things are when it came out yet I was left super disappointed.
