I've been going ham on the Criterion lately. Going at the catalogue in a totally scattergun kind of way

Unemployed, not going to school for the semester, just been drinking a shitload of coffee every day, lifting weights, reading books and watching films and jerking off.

I'd probably kill myself if it weren't for these diversions

I feel this. Sub in basketball for the weights and writing for the books and that's about where I was at last year to a T.

Gone Girl was very enjoyable

I'm glad to hear that, I'm really looking forward to seeing it this week. 

Just found this gem on apple tv, I found it pretty entertaining...

I went into it knowing fuck all about the book and was very glad I did. Fincher's turning into a bit of a one trick pony but fuck does it ever work for me. Neal Patrick Harris and his character are pretty awful but everything else was excellent.

HATE!

Yeah, I saw it two nights ago with my wife.  We'd both read the book but it was kinda cool to hear people in the theater who clearly hadn't.

David Fincher may be a one-trick pony, but he has a very good one trick..  I enjoyed Gone Girl a lot!  David Fincher might not top Social Network yet but this one is close. If there's one thing Fincher loves to do is continuously fuck with his audience.   I disagree with you on NPH though, his character was a creep but he played it surprisingly well.  Tyler Perry was surprisingly decent too, nothing special though.  Emily Ratajkowski looks very, very, VERY good naked and I'm not just saying that because "she has cum-on-me-tits".  The girl I'm talking to, maybe dating soon (Fingers fucking crossed), kinda looks like her..   ::)  I think the best thing about the movie was Rosamund Pike's performance (Best Actress nominee??) and Trent Reznor's dreamlike score which was worth the $8.50 ticket alone.  /filmgeekrant

I've gotta agree with HATE! on this one, NPH really didn't do it for me. It's not because I'm used to him as Barney Stinson because I have never seen HIMYM, I just thought his acting wasn't up to standard with everyone else in the film. Also, have you read the book? Because when you read it NPH is the last person that comes to mind for a movie adaptation, that's just my opinion though. It's funny you mention The Social Network as a reference point, Fight Club is easily Fincher's best and would be the movie of his career to "top".

Also, if youre talking to an Emily Ratajkowski lookalike good luck to you because she is insanely good looking.

Actually that was Mooley who had issues with NPH.  He didn't bother me too much, but when I read the book, all I could picture was Pete Campbell from Mad Men as Desi.  NPH does't look "old money" enough.

My mistake, and wow that's spot on.

Ooooooooh, that would be a better casting choice.  I love Fight Club but in terms of directorial work Social Network might be his magnum opus for right now.  For its time Fight Club was, and still is, an incredible piece of work but much of it can be owed to Edward Norton/Brad Pitt's performances, Dust Brothers score, and the amazing sound/visual editing style.  People almost knew what to expect, not with the story of course, but with the style of the film even with Fincher on board directing it.  Social Network was a nice surprise from Fincher, he was able to push fucking Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield into pretty great dramatic roles.

Watched The Grand Budapest Hotel two nights ago and just watched The Red Shoes. Definitely did not feel like a film from 1948

I also checked out:



Will probably dig into it over the next few days.

yeh for sure, one of those films that just kicks you in the guts.

Have you seen that 'Encounters..' one, set in Antarctica?. Herzog has a knack for extracting gold from oddballs, and strange places.

This is great, quite revealing on how influential Jodorowsky's 'Dune' storyboard was. Damn shame it couldn't be fully realised.

A lot of this stuff motivates me in the same way watching good skating does, just makes you want to go out and try do it.

Speaking of movies written and starring Billy Bob Thornton...  This movie was great!  Underrated fucking classic.

Snowpiercer I expected to suck but I found myself entertained throughout the whole film. Story isn't very original but it's still worth a watch.
