I watched The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford tonight...it was bomb.  I recommend it.

ah good call, its so god damn underrated, I hate when people rag on it for being "slow". Impatient bastards.

Has to be in my top 10 movies of all time

for anyone who fucks with torrents and wants gran torino, its a real good one yaw

just finished it, first of all Clint Eastwood is an ultimate badass, however this isnt a very good movie, the supporting cast actually made me want to turn it off, the dialogue at parts was so bad I thought they'd dubbed english over english, it wasn't shot very well and it was really dry at parts, no music except for what sounded like a raspy Clint Eastwood singing at the end which made me laugh. If this is nominated for "Best Picture" at the Oscars I will be extremely disappointed, but I thought Clint Eastwood was great in it.

the asian girl is the worst thing ever in that. in changeling (which clint directed) its not nearly as bad but there is still a couple people that are so bad it makes you think clints a little too old to be directing films.

yeah gran torino, same thing for me, I liked clint, but damn everyone else in it was TERRIBLE.  His two sons, the asian boy and girl, and especially the priest.  And that was clint singing at the end.

I finally saw slumdog millionaire, the trailer for is was so amazing that I had really high hopes for this movie and thankfully they were met.  I loved every minute of it.

did you feel kind of awkward at the end when they started dancing?

well I read something about a big dance sequence "tribute to bollywood" type thing before seeing it, so I was kind of expecting it, but yeah, it did feel very out of place.


I also watched the Wrestler last night.  So good, wasn't crazy about the ending though, maybe I was expecting...ah never mind, I don't wanna spoil it for anyone.   Defenitly good movie, I predict Mickey wins the oscar.

get the soundtrack, it does not disappoint.
Nick Cave rarely disappoints in my opinion.

 You and the D00D have turned this thread into a horrible head-on-collision between a short bus full of retarded kids and a van full of paraplegics.

"The old man's still an artist with the thompson"

One of my favorite scenes in a movie ever is when they try and bump off Albert Finney to the magical tune of Danny Boy

such a rad movie. casey affleck kills it.
get the soundtrack, it does not disappoint.

"Who is that?  His voice sounds familiar...is that...Nick Cave!?  No way!  That's it, I'm watching the credits."

Then, as soon as the credits roll..."Music by Nick Cave"

Awesome.

I might be buying that one.

As I recall there are not any lyrics in any of the songs, I bought the soundtrack when I saw the movie in theaters, unless your talking about that guy whose singing about "that dirty little coward who shot mr howard" song, I agree though, amazing soundtrack.

i thought Gran Torino was awesome.  but I like pretty much any Clint Eastwood movie that doesn't involve an orangatan.

My copies of "To live and die in LA" and "They Live" both came in today.  they're both really good.

gran torino was fucking great, saw it last night and was super psyched on it. i've already started grunting and shooting my finger at people.

The Diving Bell and The Butterfly

Amazing film, beautifully shot, well written and well acted. I truly loved this film, and I really thought I wouldn't. I hesitated watching it but glad I finally did.

I highly recommend this to everyone.

I haven't seen the film but I read the book. If you do happen to read, I highly suggest it. One of my favorite books, and it's a quick read.

I saw it twice in theaters when it first came out. It's absolutely amazing what the cast and crew achieved on such a limited budget (i believe less than half a million) - pretty unprecedented  for a first time director. Joesph Gordon Levitt is definitely one of the best actors this generation has to offer.

wow thats pretty amazing how good it looked for how low of a budget that is, i think Gordon Levitt did do a good job, I also surprisingly liked him in The Lookout
