    I love that McLovin is called the Motherfucker in the sequel. That guy gets the best character names.

    Seriously. I was dragged to go see the movie and ended up liking the most out of everyone.

    The scene I liked in Kiss-Ass was when Nic Cage shoots his daughter, mostly because it was the best work Cage has done in years.

    Exciting to see Juliette Binoche and Bryan Cranston in the cast of Godzilla.

    Elizabeth Olsen is going to be in both Godzilla and Oldboy? Wtf? I still can't wrap my head around Spike Lee re-making an American Oldboy...

    Although I really want to agree with you on that, I'll hold out a little hope that we can get at least one amazing scene from Sam Jackson.

    Actually the whole cast is pretty solid now that I'm looking at it again.

    Rocky, Rocky II, and Rocky Balboa are the only Rocky movies anyone ever needs to see. Hell, you could erase III, IV, and V from existence, and it'd be a great little trilogy.

    I watched Skyfall last weekend. I liked it a good bit, but had a few issues with it: Bardem's villain wasn't menacing enough, and the final confrontation (and even the last half hour you could say) was really underwhelming. Aside from Severine at the very beginning, this had no Bond girl. I've heard they went for a different approach this time around, but come on.

    You could argue that M was the Bond girl this go-around.

    I like the third act at Skyfall more than anything else I've seen in the series. But that's mainly because I hate Bond movies more than almost any other franchise.

    I'm also inclined to say sieges > chases for the most part, but I haven't done a proper comparison.

    Godzilla will be terrible despite a great cast. Why? Because it's a terrible, terrible premise for a movie that is trying to be anything but schlock. It's a fucking Sci-Fi (the TV channel) movie. Why would Cranston do this? The man seems to actually have some real integrity.

    At the very least it was an honest depiction of effects that a combat environment have on the psyche of men who have served. The movie ends with the main character basically admitting that he's no longer fit to be a husband and a father. That the military has ruined him, to a certain extent.
    I don't really agree with this assessment. I thought it was fairly clear that war, not the military, had ruined his life... and that his desire to end it already colored most of his professional mishaps. He was on the edge because he was past the point of caring, and he was past the point of caring because he'd seen so much dying already.

    Also, it was a very good movie for fans of procedurals. If you can sit and enjoy hours upon hours of Zodiac, Flight 93, and similar edge of your seat by-the-book movies, Hurt Locker is fantastic. That's me to a T, and I get that it's not everyone.

    So, I know this movie has been discussed in this thread before, but the line-up this year reminds me of 24 Hour Party People, one of my favorite movies. Pretty stoked to have gotten it in the mail today. Wrapping up the day and about to pour myself a fabulous drink, get bloody high and watch this movie. Excite.

    Are you being sincere? In the last few years, Cranston has signed on for Len Wiseman's Total Recall, John Carter, Red Tails, all three of Seth MacFarlane's shows, and of course, Rock of Fucking Ages. He'll do any goddamn thing that draws a paycheck.

    Keeping with the holiday theme this weekend, I'm looking for a quality movie to watch with a few drinks on Saturday that's Irish or is made by an Irish director.

    Any suggestions?
