Honeymoon. The tension was high but felt a bit let down in the end. Some movies can pull off leaving you stumped and to make up your own conclusion - this one felt like a copout.

'71, Blue Rain and Whiplash were all pretty great. Screeners are all over the place now so there's plenty of good shit watch coming up.

Did anyone see Inherent Vice yet? That movie looks like it could be the best movie to come out in years.

Yup. I got the screener about a month ago. Really great film with a gonzo vibe, though a little scattered at times. put reese witherspoon back on my list of famous women i would do horrible/fantastic things to.

Finally got around to watching the 70's Malick films. Man, does that guy know how to shoot a scene to capture the beauty of the location. Badlands i'd recommend to anyone and has clearly inspired True Romance and Natural Born Killers. Days of Heaven is amazing but is a movie that will be hit or miss for a lot of people.

As for the 30 for 30's, i've seen them all I think except the most recent The U part 2. My Favorite I think is the Best that Never Was that focused on Marcus Dupree, but pretty much all of them are extremely well done.

And Shark Tits, I don't think you have to be a Masshole to find Whitey Bulger interesting. As part of the basis for the Departed (along with adapting Infernal Affairs) and his crazy corruption/political connections he's definitely of interest to many people who like gangster/crime documentaries.
no, i spose not but it's always been interesting to me as an Irish masshole. they're gonna hafta re-do the departed w/ the old guy getting busted instead of shot up in a basement or whatever. i'm curious to whether he actually was a rat and a pedo like a lot of the books make him out to be. could easily be propaganda to discredit his ass but could just as easily be true.

Badlands is my favorite of Malick. The score is amazing.

I went to the same high school as that guy. I graduated though. Dick Cavett went there too.

"My own brother a shit sucking vampire." This movie is a classic, have seen it a bunch and will watch it much more.



This movie was really interesting, really gave me the creeps and made me feel uncomfortable.



This movie was so much better then I remembered.

Wolf Of Wall Street was pretty great.

Bummed it will never be in weekly rotation on TBS with Goodfellas and Casino because they would have to cut half the movie to edit it for TV.

So...Screener season, huh?

I'm tempted to watch Inherent Vice and Birdman but have to wait and see them in theaters.


Pretty damn good.

Just watched "Get Low" w/Robert Duvall, Sissy Spacyk and Bill Murray on Netflix. Pretty good watch. Kinda sad at the end but a good story and amazing acting.

I don't get why they even bother playing movies like these on tv.  They censor everything and ruin the flow with commercials.

I agree totally. And yet, if either of those movies are on I will just get sucked in from whatever scene is on until the end.

I really dug Inherent Vice. It was sort of cross between The Long Goodbye and Big Lebowski. Not as much of a full on comedy like Lebowski, definitely more weird, and more of the humor is in the off kilter performances. I think this might become a classic, although I have heard from a few others who absolutely hated it.

I half want to see this and I'm sure it's a good film. Eastwood is no slouch. That said, I'm not sure I want to financially support something so utterly uncritical of the war itself and something that seems to mythologize Kyle himself, when the real guy may have been a total asshole/psychopath/jingoist/rascist/liar/bully.

Just saw it.  I really enjoyed it, but my wife wasn't into it, but she's not a big fan of Paul Thomas Anderson.  I definitely want to see it again, there's so much going on.

I really enjoyed Unbroken and American Sniper.  Both had pretty gripping story lines, believable leads, good visuals.  Anyone have similar recommendations?

The Grand Budapest Hotel, Wes Anderson flicks are always good.

It dealt with the issues of PTSD way better than most movies ive seen, it was subtle and excellent, so in that way it sort of criticises that aspect of war. If you dont want to pay to see it, torrent it, because it really is worth watching.

Birdman was incredible and the score and cinematography stunned me. I have Inherent Vice downloaded but think I might wait off on watching it until it is out at the movies here in Australia.

Has anyone seen The Imitation Game? I'm thinking about seeing it but I don't like Benedict Cumberbatch much.

I thought Imitation game was just ok. The performances outshined the actual story, but worth watching. Reminded me of A Beautiful Mind in many ways.
My top four for the year in order are; The Grand Budapest Hotel, Birdman, Whiplash, and Inherent Vice.
As for worst film (that i recieved a screener for.) of the year was the latest transformers movie. I turned that piece of garbage of after maybe 10 minutes.
