    Capt. America, for me, really lost the whole movie when it went into - Captain America vs WW2: The Montage

    I did enjoy the Iron Man series, but that's quite possibly due to the wit of Robert Downey Jr. being such a likeable smug asshole

    On principle, I totally agree. The blockage is within me.


    Here's a trailer for Ben Affleck's next directorial outing, which was one of the most fun projects I've ever worked on. The plot is pretty outlandish, but it's based on a true story. They shot Warner Bros. as its 70's self, so it was a challenging but satisfying endeavor, and it appears the finished film is going to be just as enjoyable.

    Affleck is turning out to be a pretty good director.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    I'm excited for this if only to see Michael Parks as Jack Kirby.

    EDIT: Just busting your balls, RedHotSgtPeppers, btw. It was just really perfect timing, considering the several posts about it right before.

    Someone said 10pm for one of the recent show. If that's the case and the screening starts on time, totally doable.

    It is SO worth it to just wait until the 25th for MK...getting a shit spot at the Wiltern is the worst, and if you get there before doors you can hop in line with me and we'll get into the pit.

    Show time for the opening band/ticket time or time for the headlining band? I can imagine it be quite a difference.

    Headlining band. I walk in and out of the floor a lot, getting drinks, going to the bathroom, smoking. i can't stand staying in one place waiting between bands unless i'm at a festival all day.

    Regardless, if you've been salivating at the chance of seeing Spiritualized again for 3 1/2 years now like I have, this decision is a no-brainer.

    Do you know important it is to say you saw the new wes anderson movie before anyone else? Its the epitome of hipsterdome. And then showing up to the gig like you just dont give a fuck is even better.

    Definitely not knocking anyone else for wanting to do that, it's just not my thing and I don't see it as a deal break. i watch a lot of shows from back by the bar at the Wiltern and it's great. the line of site is great, and sound is great, and the room really isn't that big.

    Yeah, I probably won't try for that Moonrise Kingdom screening. I was just speculating.

    If this story has any truth, this might end up being the most fucking insane movie ever made:

    Don't know if you guys have discussed it yet, but I loved the new Whit Stillman. I had forgotten that it always takes about a half hour or so to get submerged in the dialogue of his characters, but once I fully locked in, it was some great stuff.

    I watched Deconstructing Henry last night, under the impression that it was one of the more laugh-packed Woody Allen comedies. I didn't find it to be that uproarious, but it was still pretty enjoyable.

    Definitely not one of his "most laughed-packed" comedies. That would probably go to Bananas or even Sleepers, for just plain slapstick comedy. Even Sweet & Lowdown and Small Time Crooks would be better straight-forward "comedies." I guess what i'm saying is you got bad advice.

    Yeah, Deconstructing Harry gets downright depressing as the movie goes on. I do always get a kick out of the kid naming his penis after John Dillinger. I need to rewatch that movie.

    Thinking about taking in ‘John Carter’ at the $3 place up the street this weekend, as it seems like it might be decent, but then again it’s also Disney and don’t want just a ‘Prince of Persia on Mars’ or something.

    I know plenty of people that enjoyed John Carter, but I was not one of them. It may have been that it was more enjoyable in 3D? For $3 though you could do worse.

    This is awesome...
