    I'll go first - it makes me mad that the pretty lady that Gad-spy wants is in the new Coen Bros. film, because she's fucking Kryptonite for me as a viewer?

    I agree on Leo's accent and his rage scenes. But the guy has got charisma! I can't wait to see Gatsby -- it's in 3D???

    I thought you liked her in Shame? I have a similarly tough time with her, and this is the first performance of hers where she wasn't like "I'm ACTING!!!"

    Apparently, this critic i've never heard of doesn't like Refn's new film.

    Movies really don't get much worse than Nicholas Winding Refn's 'Only God Forgives. It's a shit macho fantasy — hyper violent, ethically repulsive, sad, nonsensical, deathly dull, snail-paced, idiotic, possibly woman-hating, visually suffocating, pretentious. I realize I sound like Rex Reed on one of his rants, but trust me, please — this is a defecation by an over-praised, over-indulged director who thinks anything he craps out is worthy of your time. I felt violated, shat upon, sedated, narcotized, appalled and bored stiff.

    I didn't mind Moulin Rouge, it was meh for me too. Typically I love musicals but one thing I never understood was why Chicago was so celebrated. I thought it was awful.

    Chicago was another one that I only saw 15 minutes of... and then I fell asleep. I was wide awake before starting the movie.

    Tried to watch it while visiting my parents and after about 15 minutes we all asked each other, anyone enjoying this? Nope. Off.

    http://www.hollywood-elsewhere.com/2...e-morning-air/

    This dude liked it. http://twitchfilm.com/2013/05/cannes...-forgives.html

    Few films are as anticipated around Twitch as Nicolas Winding Refn's follow-up to Drive and re-teaming with Ryan Gosling, Only God Forgives. The film has had its premier at Cannes and boy is it going to be divisive. More art film than drama, this is an immaculately constructed production where every shot is a masterpiece. Just try to look away.

    From Cliff Martinez's score that alternates between full orchestral and electronic piano to some of the most exquisite production design and cinematography ever put to film, this is a cinematic feast for the senses. Even the special effects makeup work is brilliant with every sliced off body part squirting out just the right amount of practical blood. Oh and there is plenty of blood.


    While many will surely argue that this is all at the expense of story, there is enough of one here to keep things moving, even if barely, and Kristin Scott Thomas is everything she's advertised to be. Get ready, the most badass art film ever is coming your way.

    I posted it because I found the the review funny. I actually enjoy Refn's work, and am interested to see the new one.

    Pretty much sums up my feelings about Drive. I do plan on giving Only God Forgives a fair shake, though.

    Uniting these two conversations....I liked Mulligan in Shame, and I like looking at photographs of her, but I strongly dislike every one of the five films I've seen her in (and her performances in the other four), including the one in current release. Only God Forgives may prove to be more hollow bullshit with Gosling on autopilot, but not having her in it will automatically endear it to me.

    Well, it got no love from the Academy, didn't make much at the box office, and was much less loved than "Chicago!", which was completely forgettable in comparison. That spells "meh" to meh.

    Throw in these kind of reviews: "[Luhrmann] gives you way too much of what you didn't really want in the first place: soulless high jinks." "But its sense of fun is so relentless and excessive, it all ends up being extremely tedious and shallow." "The net result of all this cinematic whirling, of the "wrong" music and of the parodic plot, is that nothing at all in the film moves us."

    Yeah, Moulin Rouge got panned at the time. All the girls I knew in high school loved it, so I've seen it dozens of times and pretty much love it.

    I just watched the original over the weekend. It was fairly entertaining and jumpy but the entire time, and especially at the end, I couldn't help but wonder...what was the point of all of it?

    Definitely no point, but a fun ride none the less. Really liked the exorcism story at the end.

    The movie has a 7.6 rating on IMDB with over 164k votes. So, while critics and the "Academy" find it meh (although it won 2 oscars and was nominated for several more, including Best Picture), it would seem that most people do not. I have a very hard time sitting through musicals, which makes me feel meh about most of them.

    It also grossed over 57m in the US, which is more than it's budget (but not by much). I would say it was pretty successful, and doesn't really spell "meh", even if I disagree.

    I loved Chicago. I actually need to buy another copy because my kids scratched up the old one. And Moulin Rouge was amazing! So ridiculous but heartfelt as well.

    If you have the Flixster app, you can search by movie, then "Get Showtimes" and change the distance and go as far out as 100 miles. I just checked and that Commerce theatre is the only one that comes up.
