    I share his sentiments. Obviously, a lot of people found something to like about A Dangerous Method, but apart from Knightley's performance (which is bold as fuck, if not a total success), I didn't care for it either.

    Oooooohhh, no way! Cronenberg has been getting adventurous and I'm exciting for this to come out! Trailer looks fantastic--just enough to leave you're mouth watering.

    Yeah, I've heard about that. Good news indeed. I really liked The Last Days of Disco and Metropolitan.
    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.

    Has anyone seen The Killings at Outpost Zeta? If so, would you recommend it? Really cool fan made boards of canada music video using clips from that movie.

    Holy cow!

    The studio in Moscow that put out all the early Tarkovski films (the Soviet studio that basically released most Russian films during communist rule) has been uploading a bulk of their films. They're in really good quality as far as I can tell, and at least The Mirror had subtitles. Can't guarantee for any of the others.

    That's really cool. I need to check out more Russian film and literature. I think that the only Russian film I've ever seen is Ivan's Childhood, which I liked pretty well (and I hope it is released in blu-ray sometime soon).

    Oh my god Tim. Ivan's Childhood is beautiful and tragic, and the least of Tarkovsky's films. Andrei Rublev, Stalker, The Mirror and Solyaris are all masterpieces. The Mirror is quite probably my favorite film of all time.

    Go ahead and watch it.

    I am excited he has made another film but that trailer doesn't make me excited about the film, specifically.

    This is awesome. I am so glad our TV can stream from YouTube!

    I am also excited to rewatch Alexander Nevskij!

    I may be a spoiled rotten fuck for saying this, but - while this is awesome in theory, there's absolutely no way Tarkovsky's work should be discovered via YouTube. Do it right - if you don't live in an area that regularly offers big-screen viewings of Tarkovsky films (which Los Angeles does), get an all-region DVD player from eBay for $50 and check out the boxed set from Artificial Eye. These movies are too goddamn great for the first viewing to be subpar.

    Yeah, I'll probably see what Netflix has, rather than view them on YouTube. I'm going to switch back to their DVD service next month.

    Not to be a complete populist here, but saw The Hunger Games this morning. Enjoyed it a lot, a competently made version of the books with some good "oooh" and "ahhh" moments. The kids at the theater seemed to be impressed, a definitely step up from the humdrum repetition of the Harry Potter pictures and the super-dullness of the Twilight things.

    (I have two teenage kids, so don't come crashing me for seeing teenage movies)

    The Snow White and the Huntsmen trailer and Avengers looked cool, Prometheus looks awesome, and the new Twilight trailer is probably the most horrible teaser trailer I've ever seen. I cannot imagine wanting to see that movie based on solely the trailer.

    I will probably check out The Hunger Games sometime in the next couple weeks, if for no other reason than to see how Jennifer Lawrence fares as a blockbuster lead.

    Agreed, someone linked me to those youtube videos a few months ago and the extent to which I've used them is to fuck around with Stalker on mute while I drank and played Underworld out of my speakers or something, hahaha.

    I saw The Hunger Games this morning, too. It is definitely in a much higher league than the Twilight films. I saw the soundtrack listing and figured it was going to be a bunch of music videos, like Twilight, but was pleased to see that they didn't actually use the soundtrack in the film. A Taylor Swift song dropped in the center of dying children would not have worked well... I haven't read the books, but it seems like they could have easily turned this story into a shitty movie, yet they managed to make something enjoyable.

    It helps that Jennifer Lawrence is an actress that Kristen Stewart couldn't even dream of being.

    I don't know if there's much of an audience out there for it, but that limited narrow appeal is certainly part of its shabby charm.

    My wife wants to see it, but it seems like a perfect movie to watch at home. Am I wrong? We're often underwhelmed by Will Farrell in the theater and wish we'd seen something else.

    Well its so different from really everything he's done before that your feelings about his other stuff might not really apply.
    HE doesn't really employ the Will Ferrell "style" here.
    Theres no shouting, etc.
    I laughed a lot but it was primarily driven by the feel of the film and it's overblown melodrama and low budget style.
