Nightcrawler is pretty cool. it's like American Psycho meets Drive - but more accessible.

Not a stoner movie though. Don't get stoned and watch it.

I was disappointed in Nightcrawler. I went in wondering how much I would like it, not if I would like it, and I ended up not liking it at all. I see what you mean with the American Psycho meets Drive thing, which does make me see things in a different way, but it felt like softcore Taxi Driver to me. I thought Jake Gyllenhal was really good, but the story and other characters were really weak. Their critique or overall message or whatever you want to call it was off mark to me.



John Wick was cool though. It's the 90s action movie formula in the good way.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Guardians of the Galaxy gave me two boners that lasted for more than four hours so I had to go to the hospital TWICE.

Who saw Inherent Vice?

Every single film I've watched since September 21st (when I first started keeping track, there's a column where I note the directors too). I started doing this when I stumbled on Steven Soderbergh's site and saw that he did this and thought it was a neat idea (although he tracks tv shows, plays and records and shit too).

It's fun looking back on the list and seeing it grow and seeing what you can recall about whatever film.

Barry Lyndon




I think it's the best Kubrick film to watch after all of his other work.

Anyone trying to see Foxcatcher? Based on a true story. I kind of spoiled it by reading the wikipedia but it seems like some good acting even if it is about some wrestling shit. Carell seems amazing in it.

I actually have a copy of this DVD in my current to watch stack. I really wanted to see this on Blu Ray

I didn't hate it. If you liked Submarine, you're not exactly guaranteed to like The Double.

I was bored as fuck with nothing to do so I decided to catch a flick.

It was either that new Brad Pitt war one or Gone Girl. So Gone Girl it was.

I knew nothing about it at all. Zero.

Long ass movie but I liked it. The last 30 minutes cooked my little brain.

Interstellar was fucking crazy!!  It was super intense and mind bending at some points.  I was lucky enough to go into it with some very basic knowledge of space, the singularity, black holes and time.  Without that I think it would have been a bit confusing and hard to wrap my head around the concept at some points in the movie. I did see some people that were very confused about what was happening in the final scenes because they just didn't understand it.  I loved it though 10/10 from me!

I thought Interstellar was straight garbage.  After reading reviews that brought up comparisons to 2001 I was hyped but the only thing those two films have in common is that they take place in space and there aren't lasers or aliens.  Anyone who liked Interstellar, go see "Moon" or "2001" for the real deal.

human caterpillar 2. it wasn't really 'good' per se. the leading man was not very handsome, and it was all in black and white. i think it could be a useful tool for childraising. kids should watch and be told 'if you're bad you join the human caterpillar'.
'hell is other people sewed to your ass and mouth'.
the highlight for me was when the pregnant lady gave birth in a luxury sedan then stepped on the newborn's head under the gas pedal. 'there's no point of anything but i'm getting outta here!'

Moon is incredibly underrated. Sam Rockwell didn't even get an oscar nomination which was a shame.

I went into interstellar not even knowing what it was about.  I hadn't even seen a trailer or read any reviews.  I personally loved the whole thing about time relativity and it was cool to see what they think it would be like to travel through a wormhole.  I just dig the unknown.  It had some cheesy and unrealistic moments forsure, but it's a movie. Maybe the comparisons to other movies ruined it for you, or maybe it's just not your type of movie(we all have different tastes and expectations). 

I am going to watch both the movies you suggested!  I know Moon is on Netflix so I'll watch that first.  Space always blows my mind.

Interstellar was great, Christopher Nolan is one of my favorite directors of all time.

Interstellar was amazing to me! I know something about all that space crap so I could understand what was happening, but not enough to be able to poke too many holes in it. Never really had a movie give me the kinda feeling I got from it before. 10/10 for sure, but has to be watched in a theater.

All I know about Interstellar is that it's 3 hours long and that I will not be seeing it in the theater for that very reason. I didn't like Inception, and The Dark Knight Rises took the series out with a wet fart. I'm not expecting to like Interstellar.

Finally saw Interstellar today (in 70mm IMAX). Was supposed to go last week but had to cancel due to moving houses

70mm IMAX is the only way I could imagine watching this film. The visual breadth and scope made it almost hard to breathe. An incredible experience and worth every fucking cent.

That wormhole sequence was so fucking sick!

I dont wanna give too much away for the people who haven't seen it, but goddamn I was hyped to go see Interstellar. I just sat there in awe for a good while until the fucking corniness started and I just wanted to get out of there and spit at someone, way to ruin a great movie.

Just watched The Proposition again with Guy Pearce and forgot how much I loved it. It's pretty dark and slow at times, but the acting's so good.

Have you seen 'Noise'? Another great Australian film.
Same dark mood as 'The Proposition', though set in more recent times.

It's one of the best western movies in recent times.

You know, viewed with our modern eyes, that final 7 minute montage of shots could very well be seen as a parody of what a 60s Italian art house film looks like

You guys have poor taste in movies and visual effects if you thought Interstellar sucked. Must be hard living with near retardation levels of ADHD. Practical effects, amazing acting, great story, REAL science and physics behind the movie. It has the recipe for an instant classic. It's the greatest movie of the past 5 years. Almost not even worth watching it at home on Blu Ray unless you have crazy surround sound. It's a MUST to see in theaters. Wish I saw it in IMAX.
