    Also, there's really no way to say this without sounding pretentious (especially with this crowd), but it was obvious from the trailer that this was a pretty abstract art film. One that was meant to be experienced more than anything else. If you really need answers Packer's right about elephant man and the guy on the motorcycle was another alien that was more or less keeping an eye on her, but that doesn't even matter that much. Art films aren't meant to be "solved", and this is no exception.

    The ending is about the longest standing of human traditions: if you can't screw it, kill it.

    Hah, I just watched Under The Skin tonight. I loved it! Not really too much to say except that it's definitely a movie that will stay with me for a while.

    I absolutely loved Under the Skin. Definitely one of the best of the year so far for me. The music/score is fucking unreal.

    I know I'm completely behind but I just watched Her and I absolutely loved it. Brilliant. Joaquin is amazing of course but Amy Adams also impresses me every time.

    Yesterday, I tried watching Under the Skin, granted I was distracted, but my feeling is this movie is best appreciated by those sequestered in the theater. The book ain't all that either.

    So I was convinced to go see Godzilla at the three dollar theater this previous weekend. It wasn't as stupid as I thought it was going to be but I just don't like what they did with Godzilla the monster. I mean the story line was your typical monster movie and all. I just feel like they made Godzilla to much of a good guy. To me Godzilla does save the day but at the same time he really doesn't care what damage he does to humans. I don't know I just thought it wasn't the best representation of Godzilla.

    It was great, but the trailer makes it seem that Gary Oldman is the main human character. He is far from, and is barely in the film.

    This is why I have stopped watching trailers for movies I know I want to see. I haven't seen anything from this movie yet at all. I need to get on that.

    I had only heard that the special effects were supposed to be terrific, so I'd love to see it on the big screen.

    The Lego Movie seems to have been almost universally praised, but what I haven't seen mentioned is how insanely trippy of a movie it is. I'm not a drug person, but I enjoy watching movies with a few strong drinks from time to time and this worked wonderfully in that regard.

    Yeah, I wasn't a fan of the ending to Lego Movie either. I understand what they were going for, but it really took me out of the movie. The whole "it was all in the character's head" scenario rarely gets pulled off without feeling cheap.

    Akron finally got an independent film theater! Living here is just a degree less hellish now! So yeah, I got to see Under The Skin on the big screen and I'm glad I did. It's been 2 or 3 years since I've seen a movie in the theater. There were parts of that film that were disturbing on a such a visceral level to compare to Eraserhead and The Shining. It's going to take a lot of time to unpack everything going on there, but the experience of watching it was stunning and unique. Some absolutely incredible pairings of image and sound throughout the movie. Even if you hate it or don't get it, you probably won't ever forget it.

    Most kids movies, especially animated ones, come off a bit druggy when enhanced by adult party favors. It's the only way I can manage as many as I watch.

    The ending was expected, so it wasn't that annoying to me, but the "it was all in the character's head" doesn't work in this storyline. The Lego world is not just in the kids imagination.

    Finally watched Rachel Getting Married with a few friends tonight. Everyone was cooing madly about what a masterfully directed film it was. I, uhh, I can't say I share that sentiment. I'm kind of shocked that it was such a well received film. I found it insufferably dull and ponderous. And about an hour too long. God, the United Colors of Benetton/UN interracial wedding with bridesmaids in saris and Ganesh on the cake (and a terrible actor as the groom) and seemingly every world music musician in the greater Connecticut area playing on and on and on. What a turgid Robert Altman impression. Demme hasn't made a decent film since Silence of the Lambs.

    Anne Hathaway was great in that.

    Speaking of movies that are 'insufferably dull and ponderous', I watched Only God Forgives last night.
    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 watched it last night and today I'm having trouble thinking about anything else. Sexy Beast was great but this film is on another level. I feel like that opening scene was something Kubrick would have been proud to call his own and it just never let up. And Scarlett Johansson, wow. Just wow. Between her disembodied work in Her and the physicality of this performance I'm starting to think she's capable of anything. Except maybe a British accent, but even that made sense in the context of the story.

    Anyone care to fill me in on Birth? How does that compare to Glazer's other two movies?

    I LOVED Birth. It's actually my favorite of Glazer's films. It's a wonderfully moody, atmospheric and stylish film. It's part horror, part supernatural thriller, part psychological melodrama. At the center of the film is a pretty remarkable performance by Nicole Kidman - maybe her best. You've probably read about this scene at the Met Opera which consists of a 2-minute close up on Kidman's face as she sits in the audience of a Wagner opera and quietly wrestles with a torrent of emotions. In the wrong actress' hands it could have been a ridiculous, indulgent moment, but with Kidman in the seat, Glazer created a stunning coupe de theatre. On paper, the film's premise is decidedly silly, but with Glazer's direction and Kidman's central performance it's absolutely spellbinding. The film also offers wonderful supporting performances from Lauren Bacall and, yes, Anne Heche.
