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.

agreed. I was pretty excited about it when I saw the trailer. It was interesting but definitely lacking in terms of depth and content. I know some people will disagree but that's just my point of view.

I just saw it yesterday, and I felt the same way...at first. I was expecting it to be one of the most fascinating stories I've seen, but I was a little disappointed after I saw it. I think the reason that happens is because there was so much hype around it for months. People made it out to be one of the greatest films to ever come out in recent years (especially by a major studio). So I think it is hard to not be a little let down.

But as the day went on, I could not help my mind from constantly drifting back to it. It is actually a very innovative, deep and thought-provoking story. There is a lot to it. I mean, just the cinematography alone was incredible. I loved the use of red (color of love). I loved how the OS could represent two different outcomes: 1. Society is/will become even more detached from society. 2. People are all look for some kind of connection/relationship. And there is a bunch of other stuff, but I don't feel like writing it all out.

Anyone else seen Lost in Translation as well? The whole time I watched, Her, I kept thinking of LIS. There are a lot of similarities. Her almost felt like a response to Lost in Translation. I'm looking forward to watching it again to see even more things I didn't pick up on.

Spike and Sofia were married. Good read. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/01/07/her-lost-in-translation_n_4555887.html

jodorowsky's autobiography expressed in his signature surrealistic, metaphoric, symbolic, abstract style
it's quite interesting and colorful despite being 2 hours long. it helps if you know your basic latin american history
there's also peeing penises, peeing vaginas, and a delicious set of milf tittays


I just want everyone to know that I'm only 32.8% skateboarder, and that's on a good day. The rest is just soy and cum.

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.

about to start watching this ... first episode was good ... he killed a dog in the first like 30 seconds! shiiit

Anyone seen The Double with Jesse Eisenberg? It's based off the same novel as the film Enemy (which was fantastic)..I highly suggest seeing both. Such great films.

That's pretty funny, I thought you were talking about the movie 'The Double' that came out a few years back with Richard Gere and Eric Forman from That 70's Show. That movie sucked.

I can't believe I haven't seen this before.  So good!  Has a big Charlie Kaufman vibe so I was loving it.

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?"
I'm a big X-Men fan, I FUCKING LOVED IT. stick around till the credits are done rolling for sure

Broken Flowers starring Billy Murray was great.  It's on Netflix Instant too, plus Fucking Awesome pro Chloe Sevigny makes a cameo in it.

I liked Broken Flowers. But I feel like it was a Murray filler movie.  But that's not a bad thing.

Just saw the new Transformers last night and it was great. They really stepped it up and wrote a great story that makes you want more. I don't know how many pals are Transformers fans but if you are its a definite must see. Lockdown, and Galvatron(Megatron) are great. The Dinobots were really well done as well, but I wish they would of called them by their names,allow them to speak, and have more screen time when they transformed into robots. They also made Optimus an amazing leader in this one by giving him some hatred towards the human race. I really hope in the next films they introduce  Autobots like Ultra magnus, Rodimus Prime, and redo Jetfire because they screwed him up in the second movie. it would be cool if they brought back Decepticons like Soundwave, and introduced Trypticon,and Thundercracker. Also if any of you did see the movie was that Starscream hanging in one of Lockdowns cells?

Incredible. I can't wait to see how this franchise develops.

One of the worst films I've ever seen. No hyperbole. It blows my mind that anyone here would like it.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Fan-fucking-tastic. Of course the effects were amazing and photo-realistic. The way they made the apes emote felt absolutely natural. It wasn't some typical us versus them bullshit. The movie was analogous to a race and culture war done very well and it did well to show what seemed to be realistic development. Both sides seemed to understand the gravity of the situation and the other side's position. The one thing that I was not thrilled about is how towards the end the antagonist drops all pretense of moral ambiguity and goes straight for the definite side of "evil". It was understandable though. Even in his fall to undisputed enemy of good, his actions are more than warranted and could be written off as necessary to benefit his party. Go see this movie.

I like how you back up your statement with no solid points as to why it was bad. It really makes your opinion that much more valid.

Do you really believe that I'm not capable of typing why? I mean, you just read how I feel about another film and I think I did it pretty successfully. I didn't feel like I had to talk about Transformers. It's shittiness seems self evident and I'm going to say 90% of the users here would agree. Transformers is not a movie I want to think about ever again.

Haven't seen it, but I can safely assume that the new Transformers movie is worth defending. For it's cinematic merits if nothing else.

Just rewatched place beyond the pines - brilliant movie.

And Forgetting Sarah Marshall rules.

Haven't really seen anything new lately though - wanted to watch Noah but couldn't make it past 10 minutes.

Been on a netflix binge lately. Watched WWZ out of boredom the other night. The whole zombie concept is so mind-numbingly stupid that I have a hard time getting into zombie films. Didn't care for this one. There were three sequences I enjoyed though. The apt building bit in the beginning, the airplane crash, and the end at the research facility were all very tense and creepy.

Watched Ti West's The House of the Devil a few days ago. I don't think I've seen a movie so suspenseful. I swear I was on the verge of a heart attack for nearly the entire film. Once shit hits the fan, I was kind of let down, but the buildup was so good.

Place beyond the Pines was fantastic, I rarely rewatch films nowadays but I viewed that one thrice and would gladly do it again...I'm having trouble selecting and enjoying anything since "House Of Cards", it was so well written and acted and such a ballsy (under)statement on power politics and psychopathy in the modern world...nothing seems to stack up to the way that series was executed.

In our post-House of Cards binge comedown we've opted to watch light hearted comedies - "They Came Together" was enjoyable, also watched the last 3 seasons of "The Office" which was fantastic.

Enjoyed "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" quite a bit as well (I'm late to the party on everything these days)

Funny Games (97) was great. Disturbing to say the least, but very good.

Same director also did The Piano Teacher, also on instant queue.
