This is what I was talking about when I say nobody ever believes me.

Hey man, I simply wanted proof you are who you say you are. I'm still not completely convinced, but I will go ahead and find time to watch your movies now. I've watched plenty of shitty movies in my time willingly, so I'll go ahead and give yours a chance.
Also, I saw Cabin in the Woods tonight which I found to be great fun. It's definitely not a movie for everyone, but it certainly doesn't deserve to be shit on. I'd put it in the same class as Rubber though a heck of a lot more insanely entertaining.
You're right, you should get a medal for seeing your kid twice a month. What an exemplary human being you are, finding the time in your busy schedule of pursuing your dream to add to the glut of shitty movies that come out every year to drive a few hours back to the place where a human being who depends on you for giving them a healthy, happy life so you can spend a day and a half pretending you care about them.
Have fun being a "successful" filmmaker. Personally, I'm happier knowing that I'm not a shitty person whose selfish drive to become a famous purveyor of trite crap has outweighed my responsibilities as a decent human being and grown man.
Also, it takes about six hours to actually die from a heroin overdose. There's no way you passed out for much longer than that, so again, allow me to heap praise on you for being so smart as to believe your girlfriend that she can come back from the dead, and thus in the process you let her die when you could have saved her life. Way to go, buddy. You helped a crazy person commit suicide because you're a fucking idiot.
Thanks for ruining one of the few threads I like reading with this crap.
Everybody wanna act like they forgot about Dre. "Dre" in this context meaning "the repeated atomic bombs of deeply personal abuse you suffer when you decide to involve me in some dumb shit you're saying."
Unless you lived in a refrigerator, there is absolutely no way you would have been able to handle the smell of your girlfriend after being dead for four days.
If you all care to keep a discussion on talented Asian American filmmakers the LA Asian Pacific Film Festival is coming up. I usually try to take in at least one film at this event. Normally going for more of the action oriented films I've heard about. Overall, martial arts films are my genre of choice. This year I plan to check out Blood Letter.
Any other suggestions? http://laapff.festpro.com/films
Horror enthusiasts do have standards. Sort of.
Los Angeles Times is experimenting with making their Hero Complex blog into a Youtube show and the first episode is a nice interview with Ridley Scott.
5/11/12 - Cloud Cult - El Rey // 5/23/13 & 5/24/13 - Boris - Echoplex // 6/7/13 + 6/8/13 - Jubilee Music Festival
6/9/13 - Devo/GZA - Natural History Museum // 6/11/13 - Bjork - Hollywood Bowl // 6/21/13-6/23/13 - Solid Sound Music Festival - MASS MOCA
Glad I made a fan! After you watch my movies, you will see why I didn't like Cabin in the Woods. My standards are very high.
In the spirit of this thread, I will talk about a movie I saw for the first time recently. Richard Kelly's The Box is the kind of sci-fi film I really appreciate. I enjoyed his Donnie Darko but didn't expect such an assured, mature voice and vision to develop so quickly. It raises interesting moral questions about what a person would do to benefit their life at the expense of someone else that they don't know. I would go into more detail about it but I don't want to ruin the twists and turns it takes. Better for you to watch it and experience it for yourself.
I poured a few cocktails and watched the newest Mission: Impossible flick tonight. Thoroughly entertaining. Although his screen time was rather brief for the role he played, Michael Nyqvist was an excellent Bond-esque villain, and should be utilized this way in the future.
And, Gabe, you forgot Dig!....arguably the best music documentary ever. Arguably.
EDIT: This one! So damn funny.
24 Hour Party People and Dig! are both fantastic films, the former especially. Steve Coogan is fucking brilliant in that movie.
Guys. The Raid. BLEW. MY. MIND.
Go see it.
Whenever I've attempted an at-home double feature in the past, I've found it best to involve two movies that are on different ends of the spectrum. Tonight, I watched Ron Fricke's Baraka followed by Horrible Bosses. One was quite possibly the most triumphant visual experience that I've ever had in cinema. The other was, well, Horrible Bosses.
