Holy shit Django. It's like seeing Pulp Fiction for the first time. Best acting ever. Can't even begin to articulate.
Dude, Waltz's character was so fucking sharp and hilarious. And DiCaprio was the epitomy of a spoild, sadistic plantation owner. And Samuel L. played his character so well that I didn't even realize it was him till it was explained to me after the movie.
So violent and so well made. And the rap music! Just awesome
Agreed. It's sad the academy hates Leo so much cause he easily could've snubbed an oscar with that performance.
Has anyone seen Hitchcock yet? I have all the screeners and was thinking about watching that one tonight...thoughts?
It's a recreation of a scene from a movie called Psycho. It's about moms.
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.
The live actor Bates motel portion of the Universal Studios tour was hands down the best part of the entire park. Psycho is playing this Wednesday at the South Coast Village if you’re arsed. I may be arsed.
And there is a new TV show coming out showing a proposed pre-film Mother/Son relationship: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bates_M...28TV_series%29
Not remotely. It's NOT good to see it getting awards love (outside of the acting), and if you will remember, I didn't hold Zeitlin's whiteness against him. His privileged background only registered because the movie is horseshit. But I have passionately defended his effort in spite of his execution.
In spite of some genuinely brilliant moments, I loathed Amour. I'll try to talk about it tomorrow. My Haneke problem is alive and well.
Past few weeks I've seen

Nothing like revisiting 400 Blows... Has to be in my top 5 of all time. I hadn't seen it in like 4 years and I missed it so much.
About to go on a huge Truffaut kick I can feel it. Amazing storyteller, amazing sense of humor
Okay, let's try this now.
It says a great deal about my experiences with Michael Haneke that I could walk out of Amour feeling it's the best of his four films I've seen....and yet my first public comments on it are
I also have not seen any of Guy's picks. Looking through it with Tiffany (who loves Maddin) she had seen 9 of them. One of them (thanks, Patrick) made her top 10 and another 4 were close. She also wishes Bill and Coo and I Am Suzanne could be on his list.

Just got back from seeing Django. First off, loved the locations: they filmed a good amount in the Eastern Sierra, where I'm living currently, and it was awesome to see local haunts all throughout the film. I thought Foxx did a bang-up job as his character and loved the development that he had throughout the film. Watching him inspire the hard slave towards the end (tear in eye) was such a symbol of how far he'd come. Waltz killed it, DiCaprio was just so damn demented and Samuel L. had me laughing and cringing in equal measures. The KKK scene had me rolling, certain others had me infuriated and I thought it tied together incredibly well.
And it's not too long at all. Get an attention span, hippies.
Ok. Kurosawa's High and Low might have the greatest last 25 minutes of all time. Seriously. Just fucking brilliant.
