I thought Enemy was great. I had no idea what it was about before I watched it. I just knew it had Jake and was from the guy that directed Prisoners.

there was a split second after the last scene where I didn't know how I felt, then I smiled and decided I really liked it. it easily could have gone into the 'hey, fuck this' zone  if I'd been in another mood, or had it spoiled.

I think the Jonathan Richman song in there might have influenced my approval a good deal

after Prisoners and Enemy I think Jake Gyllenhaal is primed for a McConaughey style comeback.

I did not find mulholland drive amazing
ditto. except for that scene with hannah montanas dad. that scene was top notch and the acting could not have been better

Perhaps its a contextual thing...but I had been reading this amazing/fucked up book called "Trance-Formation Of America" (highly recommended) and Mulholland Drive had so many motifs and themes that synched up with that book it was ridiculous...Lynch definitely has read it and sourced material from it heavily for several of his films - I was blown away how much Mulholland Drive made sense within the context of that book (its the kind of book that leaves a STRONG impression on the reader and Im sure Lynch was fascinated with the material)

here's a pdf if anyone wants to check it out http://wikispooks.com/wiki/File:Tranceformation_america.pdf

got high after the blazers/rockets game last night and watched this on Netflix.
it was shit. could've made it 8 minutes long and I would've actually enjoyed it.
waited the entire movie for 30 seconds of action.

piece of shit, straight up.

That's  because David Lynch sucks.

Just saw Under the Skin last night. Probably the most captivating film I have ever seen. Highly recommend it.

I just watched Dogtooth on Netflix...and holy fuck. That is a fantastic film. It is fucked up, and hilarious at the same time. It left me pretty blown away. I highly recommend it. It is in Greek though. So you'll have to do subtitles.

I was pretty confused but I got it now. was real good enjoyed the filming and the score but mother fuck spiders.
best movie i have ever seen. denis villenueve is one of the most exciting directors. cant wait to see more films from him


based on the poster alone, looks like a movie about the Roppongi Hills spider coming to life and Jake is the hero who defeats it. 

am i way off?

I really dug escape from tomorrow.

Cheap Thrills and Blue Ruin were both great.

Snowpiercer was pretty good in a dumb way. Tilda Swinton's dystopian thatcher vibe in it was pretty funny.

I'm just amazed that you were able to recognize a sculpture of a spider from the other side of the world.

House of Cards m-f-ers.  Ok, I know - its not a movie .....its BETTER than any movie Ive seen in a while.  Just binged the entire first season - the character development, the writing, cinematography, EVERYTHING about this series is incredible.  I cant believe they went this far with it, this type of disclosure of the "real" reality behind power politics and the psychopaths involved at the highest level is pretty rare in media.  Mind blowing series that Id recommend to anyone...Frank Underwood is an instant classic.

NEIGHBORS:

fucking awesome "bad neighbor" comedy with Dan Akroyd and John Belushi playing the straight man (last movie he ever made).  the vibe of this movie reminds me of The Burbs, and it's just as essential.  And Cathy Moriarty, holy shit


THE RIVERS EDGE:

pretty eh movie, a cult classic mainly due to the metal head/stoner vibe and the constant soundtrack of Slayers 'Show No Mercy'.  some great quotes in there, Dennis Hopper is awesome and Crispin Glover is so bad it's genius, Ione Skye is cute.

CUTTHROATS 9:

I watch this when I'm cranky, one of my all time favorite movies.  Was called one of the most "mean-spirited" movies ever made by some journalist guy.. awesome ultra-violent spaghetti western (and from what I understand, is gonna be the next movie Quentin Tarintino rips off)

river's edge is awesome. i didn't think it was 'eh' at all. i searched that movie down cause of that sample on a consolidated video where the little kid knocks out feck w/ a stick and his buddy goes 'hit him again'. just about anything on a consolidated video is an awesome movie except godfather was boring to me and i fell asleep to rueben and ed before his cat could eat a whole watermelon.

Anyone seen the new X-Men yet? I hear it's pretty good but I kinda want/need a SLAP opinion to give me the green or red light on this one. I don't care if it starts with "I'm no Roger Ebert but?"
