    I saw Lucy last night. Not too sure what I was expecting. But it sure was a great excuse for ScarJo to take on another emotionless drone of a role.

    Birth is worth a watch, if, for nothing else, the opening shot of the guy jogging through the park in the snow.
    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.

    Cameron Bright was so creepy in that movie. I love that he only gets parts where he never has to smile.

    Yeah, that opening sequence is beautifully done.

    It seems like other people liked it, but I didn't like it.

    I did like Under the Skin.

    I saw 13 Sins the other night. It was released this year.... so I don't know if it was straight-to-DVD or just indie--I didn't exactly recognize anyone in it. Decent thriller.

    I searched this thread and only the first "The Raid" has been mentioned. I saw "The Raid 2" last week and HOLY SHIT this was amazing. The choreography was so on point, all the fighting scenes were realistic and artfully done. I didn't watch the first of these two films, I will definitely be watching it this week.

    Late to the ball again. Finally got a chance to watch a few HBO On Demand flicks and was wowed by Behind the Candelabra.

    I'm not a huge Michael Douglas fan but I must say he hasn't done much better than this role. Maybe Wall Street. And yes, I'm old enough to remember Liberace.

    Gotta say the same for Matt Damon, too.

    I'm not sure how closely the screenplay followed the Scott Thorson memoir but I remember all that stuff going down from the supermarket tabloids.

    I've only seen the first, and it's awesome. Planning to watch the second shortly.

    I watched 12 Angry Men for the first time. It was great. Henry Fonda was amazing. It had me considering how great yet imperfect our justice system is the whole time.

    I didn't know Sidney Lumet made A Dog Day Afternoon, Network, Serpico and 12 Angry Men. What a talented filmmaker.

    Yes, tension city! That man gave us several of the finest American films. He can almost be forgiven for having a daughter who wrote the screenplay to Rachel Getting Married.

    Just watched Gladiator for the first time...

    Eh. I dunno. Joaquin put in a great performance. Russell was alright. I just thought the movie was so overwrought with bullshit and unnecessary fluff that the important bits run so fucking fast on the screen. The long, drawn out battle scene in the beginning lasts like 45 minutes and makes the important interactions between Maximus, Proximo, and Commodus seem inconsequential and rushed. These are the conversations and scenes that determine the plot of the entire movie and because of all the other bullshit swirling around they don't seem to carry any weight.

    Similarly the ending seems ridiculous and anticlimactic. I was just very surprised at how much I disliked this one; it gets universally good ratings/reviews. Am I crazy/alone?

    It is definitely not a "timeless classic," but I do think you would have felt differently had you watched it 14 years ago. It has suffered greatly from so many other huge epic movies, Lord Of The Rings, Game of Thrones, etc now having been released. I have seen it a bunch of times and rewatched it recently and still found it extremely entertaining.

    This is pretty much how I describe Before The Devils Knows You're Dead to people. It's one of the most unpleasant movies I have ever seen. Extremely well-acted and brilliantly executed, but it made feel completely sick and I never want to see it again.

    Gladiator = Braveheart in a coliseum. But it gave all the bros who hailed Braveheart as the greatest movie ever something to chew on. Living in San Diego 14 years ago, I saw this sentiment constantly.

    I think Gladiator's opening battle scene was included in such depth due to the historical significance of the Germanic peoples' involvement in the fall of the Roman Empire.

    Gladiator does not deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Braveheart.
