    I also think Jim Sheridan is pretty damn good as far as super-traditional, sentimentally-inclined dramatists go. He has a habit of casting Daniel Day-Lewis (My Left Foot, In the Name of the Father and The Boxer), which helps. I particularly remember liking In America. I can't vouch for his 50 Cent movie, though.

    Basically, you should watch Leprechaun In Da Hood.

    I love IRA period pieces. Definitely watch The Crying Game, In The Name Of The Father, and Breakfast On Pluto.

    Also

    I like the Martin McDonagh suggestion.

    There's a 2002 movie called Bloody Sunday which I thought was well done.

    And I guess I should rewatch In America now that I've moved to Hell's Kitchen.

    Oh, and if you want to watch an Irish movie that is truly gut wrenching and depressing, check out The Magdelene Sisters.

    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 think this has to happen, especially since alcohol will be involved and yes I've heard of the ending to The Crying Game haha.

    Bloody Sunday is really good. I nearly included it because I thought Greengrass was Irish, but he's apparently English and it's an English film that just happens to take a non-nationalist point of view (a la City of Life and Death).

    Ah, yeah that's been in the queue for a bit. I intend on watching it eventually, but since copious amounts of alcohol will be involved I think Leprechaun: In the Hood is the frontrunner at this point.

    Also, maybe it's 'cause there's been so much discussion around it.... but last night I couldn't really sleep due to my thinking and trying to interpret PSH's and Phoenix's relationship. That right there says it's a very special film.

    SPOILERS

    Do your past failures bother you? Have you ever had sexual intercourse with one of your family members? That scene was so great.

    Also, one thing I didn't really understand. At the end when Lancaster says they fought together in Prussia and mailed out those pigeons.. is he talking about they knew each other in a past life?

    Yes, he mentions feeling like they had known each other previously a few times.

    Okay, that farewell speech he made to Phoenix was so good.

    One more thing, am I the only one who had trouble hearing what they were saying? Even with my TV on super high volume I found myself rewinding many times to hear them clearer.

    I am without a doubt a Harmony Korine skeptic, but Spring Breakers was fantastic. Simply put, it was a mesmerizing, existential fever dream of a film that was borderline meditative at times. The soundtrack/score worked absolutely perfectly. James Franco was nothing short of brilliant. It also comes as no surprise that this is Korine's most accessible work to date. Regardless of whether you're a fan of his past work or not, go see this as soon as you can.

    So glad to hear this. I was worried it would be built up so much it would disappoint. I'll make sure I see it.

    It will absolutely disappoint. TallGuy is just a moron. Harmony Korine has never and will never make anything but shit. "a fever dream" is a pretentious asshole's way of saying "nothing really makes any sense and there's no cause and effect, shit just happens and it's really weird but since I'm an asshole I'm not going to call it out."

    Ha, that can be true sometimes, yeah. But in this particular case it all makes sense and there is definitely cause and effect. I actually really think even you would like this, Randy.

    lol, I just read something that described the film as "a Ke$ha video directed by Terrence Malick."

    There is no way I would like it because there is nothing talented in any way involved in it.

    I challenge you to describe three plot steps that carry any progression whatsoever. It's a feature length movie so there should be at least five tentpole moments that actually relate. All I want is three.
