Been making my way through the full 312 minute cut (the television version). Just finished watching episode two (watched episode one yesterday). Never seen the theatrical version but this thing plays out like a novel, it's great.

Saw guardians of the galaxy the other day . started out slow but it picked up real fast . There are some corny moments but the action is really good , the humor in it is really good , the soundtrack is quite amazing and the actors do a really good job at making you hate them and love them . It looks really good too

very solid movie and Ill be watching it again today

Word of advice for anyone going to see the new dumb and dumber movie: don't. That's $11 I will never get back.

Just saw Interstellar.  Visually it was great.  Story line.... eh.  The last 1/4 was pretty fucking corny.

Just watched "In a World" last night. It's a quirky independent comedy that's streaming on Netflix and I loved it. I'd recommend it for a funny, somewhat touching feel good movie to watch if you're struggling in the Netflix vortex, which I find myself in constantly.

woke up to the pogues 'christmas in the drunk tank' and immediately the tv had my attention. it was the intro to Basquiat, something i'd dug in the late 90s so i rewatched it. that movie is my trigger cause i knew watching 'i'm gonna do dope and smoke cigarettes today'.
i don't recommend it if you're in recovery but otherwise it's the dopeshow.

I've never heard of "Christmas in the Drunk Tank" before. "Fairytale of New York" is a really good song though.

Big time. That movie blew chunks.

I also really hate the "love conquers all" theme.

Epic in all proportions. One of the best movies ever..Filmed over 12 years with the same cast,
Ethan Hawke plays the father... it's one of those films I will think about for the rest of my life.

Really?  Most reviews I've read said the only remarkable thing about that movie was how long it took to make, can you please elaborate on it's greatness before I potentially waste a couple hours watching it...

I watched the Wrestler last night, not the greatest storyline or anything but I thought Rourke killed his role.  The scenes where he's working the deli counter are so entertaining.

I watched that Stroszek movie too recently, pretty boring and having to read the subtitles is annoying, but I appreciate the vibe they were going for.

Just looking for recommendations and websites where I can watch semi-recent compelling movies about fuckups and whatnot.

Okay, if you sit down and watch the whole thing, in one sitting. You will understand. The closest thing to a lived life that fictional cinema has yet produced. The story and the characters become personal, I thought it was sad at some points, and bloody funny at others. There's one scene in particular that really choked me up.

Watch it, then we can talk more about it!

Don't bother. It's rather pretentious, boring and corny. Unless you're super into Patricia Arquette.

Cheers for recommending In a world... , RCB3.

Saw Nightcrawler the other night. The overall narrative didn't really land for me, but the acting and the overall build up were done superbly and overall I enjoyed it. Creepy movie. I left the theater in a state of paranoia, thinking car wrecks and violence were looming around every turn.

I also saw the latest Miyazaki film The Wind Rises. I wish they had let the emotional weight of everything come out a bit more. Everything seemed oddly cheerful, down to the tone of the music and execution of the dream sequences. Still a masterful animated piece, just not what I was expecting.

Both films would be a 7/10 for me.

If you're a hipster, watch Zach Braff's new film Wish I was here. Pretty funny and outlandish take on self-discovery in the midst of maintaining some sense of parental authority. It's much better than Garden State, which isn't saying much.

No need to take personally that someone disliked a movie you were very into. Most of the world seems to love it, so you have the majority on your side.

Patricia Arquette's still pretty hot, though.

Thanks man, I feel way better about myself now..

The boy in the movie is a kook however.

I was trying to find the words to describe that movie after walking out of it, and then my buddy made the comment that it was "the best episode of Nathan For You I've ever seen" and I stopped trying. Pretty enjoyable, but the news anchor lady's violence obsession was so heavy-handed that it took away from the movie for me.





Caught this the other night, not bad at all. From the way it was presented I thought it was going to be one of those artsy slogs that's pretty take it or leave it, but really it was a pretty unpretentious drama with some occasionally biting dark comedy. It's a good time, absolutely gorgeous too.

I don't even know what to think of this. It was just really well put together. Just interesting to watch. Definitely liked it.
